The case of the territory against Mrs. Luz Balsz and five Mexicans employed by her, charged with destroying a fence belonging to Dolph Liebenow was tried in Justice Johnstone's court yesterday. This is the latest litigation in the famous hsalsz-Liebnow land case, which has passed through all the courts in this territory and was recently decided in the interior department in Mr. Lieb- now's favor. Believing that his title to the disputed land had been established by the decision, he caueed a long Btretch of wire fence to be built on the land a couple of weeks ago. The next day the fence waB torn down by five Mexicans, at the instiga tion of Mrs. Balsz, who makes no denial of the charge, but whose defense is that her right in the property has not been destroyed by the decision in which Mr. Liebenow relies. She says through her attorney that the decision was not as to his ownership or immediate pos session of the property, but as to his light to file on it ; and that since he had not come into possession of it by this decision or any other, she still retained the possession which she had formerly enjoyed. The afternoon was taken up with ar guments on this phase of the case and decision was reserved. Safe, Quick and Effective.

Prophecy Foretelling the End of the Pres ent Ruling House of China. Eeports of a serious revolt against the present Chinese government in Manchurin, and the issue of proclama tions by the rebels declaring that the Manchu dynasty is near its end, have created a great deal of interest among the foreign colony in the treaty ports, says the Shanghai correspondent of the Sew York Sun. News that bears di rectly upon the reported disaffection in many provinces of China comes from Kanking. It appears that all up through the great valley of the Yangtse a finely written prophecy of the approaching end of Manchu rule is toeing circulated. It is almost impos ible for a foreigner who has not lived in China to understand tne importance that is given by the gentry to any thing which is well written or care fully printed. If such a document does not strongly violate the proba bilities it will be accepted as gospel truth. This prophecy appears to be firmly believed by all the Chinese who have read it. It purports to have been writ ten by Huan-Peh-Shan, who, in a vi sion, describes the downfall of the pres ent government. It shows considera ble literary ability, but anyone who is skeptical may readily see that the au thor has thrown in local detail to clinch his prophecy. The sketch of the emperors of China is very well done, but this historical introduction appears to have been written merely to lull the suspicions of the reader and to induce him to accept the sensational statements about the coming ruin of the Manchu dynasty. The prophet declares that the great provinces of Yunan and Kueichou are the first that will abandon the empire. After this China will be divided into three kingdoms, but this will not take place and permanent peace will not be secured until the woods are cleared from Purple mountain and the waters of Lotus lake are dried up. The spe cious nature of such a prophecy may be seen when it is stated that about all the forests has been cut off of Purple mountain, while in dry years one may walk over the bed of Lotus lake, which is converted into solid ground. Any season of drought may, therefore, be taken by the conspirators with the assurance that the two main items of this prophecy will be found fulfilled. In Hunan there is deep feeling against the present dynasty, because of its favors shown to foreigners. Hunan is the seat of a set of fanatics who would rejoice to see every European thrown out of China. In this province have occurred the worst outrages on Christian missionaries, and anyone journeying up the Yangtse retains vivid recollections of the showers of stones and obscenity that descended upon his house boat from the neighbor ing banks. Intercourse with foreign ers seems only, to intensify the popular hatred of the European interlopers, who, they think, are encouraged by the young emperor and his advisers. The worst feature of the situation is that the central government does not dare to rebuke the insolence of the Hunan people. AMERICANS AND DIAMONDS. They Buy More Than the People of Europe. It is claimed that Americans buy more diamonds than any other people. They have always worn more, and at all times of day, in and out of season, so they were a reproach to their English cousins in the early days of social inter course. But American women's dia mond earrings worn early in the morn ing, though decried by conservative Britishers, had the power to change the standard of dress. Ridiculed as they were, the Americans won the day, and soon European dames began to wear their jewels in the street and on all possible occasions. A craze for dia monds spread over society, and not only family heirlooms but much new jewelry employing these once rare stones, and bought dirt cheap, became a feature of the daily toilette. Of course, when fashion took a hand in the business, the diamond market boomed and syndicates talked very loud and big of the fields where the sparklers bloomed perennially. The real gem entailed the imitation, and rhinestones, as well as the almost-im-possible-to-detect paste from the Rue de la Paix and the Palais Royale have had a tremendous vogue, but, as de mand increases supply, the diamond syndicates were equal to the occasion, and "real stones" could be purchased for a little more than the false ones. The result has been that everybody has worn some sort of a diamond. In this country the craze has grown into a cult. Tiaras gleam en the brows of the wives of millionaires. Necklaces worth a prince's ransom arc bought by anybody who has money to pay for them. Brooches, pins, bracelets, starred with the gems, are so common a woman must plaster herself with them to be observed. Every girl "just engaged" exhibits a diamond ring, and it has de veloped a vein of humor, if not a new class of joke, that much envied gage d'amour. The nice young man who polishes your boots for a nickel wears a "diamond" in a not too fresh neck scarf, and the gentlemanly car con ductor is not above ornamenting his little finger with an off colored African stone! In fact, where there is the least excuse for jewelry, one may be certain the preference will be given to the dia mond kind. Silage as a Poultry Ration. There is nothing in the world which hens enjoy better in the winter time than silage. They will greedily jump into the cow stalls and rob the cows of their share if possible. Green silage is a delicious food for them in the win ter time and it ought to be just as profitable to raise and store this for the hens as for cattle. Good, sweet green cornstalks carefully preserved in the silo makes a tempting food ration that stimulates the hens to better health and productive work. The profession al poultry man who raises hens by the hundreds might well consider the ad visability of preparing silage for their winter food. Those who have only a few on the farm should take some of the silage prepared for the cattle and give it to the poultry every day or two.
