Suit Against the Stan , ford Estate Begun. Stanford's- Share of the .Debt $15,237,000. The Government's Complaint Was Filed Yesterday. Successful Prosecution of Suit Will Nearly Wloe Out the Great Estate. th By the Associated Press. Sas Feancisco, March 15. Attorney L. . McKissick, special United States district attorney to prosecute the gov ernment's claim against the estate of the late Leland Stanford, filed the gov ernment's complain, in United States court today. The suit is for $15,237,000. The complaint recites the conditions under whirh the Central Pacific Rail road company was formed by Stanford, Huntington, Crocker, Hopkins and others, and asserts that at the time when the debt of the Central Pacific company to the government of the United States wa.s incurred these men were in control of all the capital stock of the company. Under the terms of partnership between Stanford, Hunt ing, Hopkins and Crocker it is asserted that the estate of Stanford is liable for one-fourth of the government's claim azainst the railroad, or $15,237,000. Claims against Huntington, Crocker and Hopkins' estates are not brought into the present suit. In conclusion judgment against the estate in the sum stated is prayed for and it is demanded that Jane S. Stanford, executrix of the estate, be ordered to pay the same out of the assets of the estate in due course of administration prior to all other claims. The Stanford estate including the Stanfo-d university property was ap praised at about $17,000,000. The suc cessful prosecution of the government's suit would not only practically wipe out the estate but would wreck the university. TAYLOR'S EXTRADITION.

The women were doomed to disappoint ment, however, for later in the day the opponents of the bill rallied their forces and forced a reconsideration of the previous vote bv a vote of 20 to 15. The senate then refused to recede from its amendment. This killed the bill for all time. The women suffragists though have not labored in vain. They have secured the adoption of a concurrent resolution for the submission of the queetion to the people in the form of s constttu tional amendment at the next election all except Jones and Dunlap opposing the appointment.
