John D. lo kamp The Famous Outfitter MORE CRIEF FOR COUNT SUIT BROUGHT IN NEW. YORK COURT.' IS AFTER BONI'S INCOMEt Foreign Creditor Enjoins Goulds from Paying Trust Funds to Countess Castellane. New York, Nov. 26-Samuel Unter meyer applied to and obtained, today from Justice Fitzgerald, sitting in the supreme court, an injunction order re turnable on Monday next, against Count and Countess Castellane and George Gould, Edwin Gould, Howard Gould and Helen M. Gould as trustees under the will of Jay Gould, to re strain them from paying to Anna Gould, Countess de Castellane, any part of the estate in the hands of the trustees, or from applying any part of the trust fund to the debts of Anna Gould, or to her support, or that of her children until further direction of the court. The plaintiff is Anthony J. Diett man, who sues as assignee of Asher Wertheimer, a London bric-a-brac dealer. The complaint which is a long printed document, contains copies of a draft drawn by Wertheimer and accepted in writing by the Count and Countess de Castellane, amounting to upwards of $8385,000, of which $285, 000, and upwards, are past due. It is alleged that Anna Gould has $18,000,000, held in trust for her by her brothers and sister, and that her income is about $900,000. It is also claimed that $25,000 a year is all that he countess requires for their sup port, and plaintiff asks that the re mainder of the income should be ap plied to the payment of the couple's debts. It is said that over $25.000 of surplus income has already accumulat ed in the hands of the trustees which ought to be used for this ~urpose. . The present suit is said to be a test case, and it is reported is backed by other creditors than Wertheimer. A few.weeks ago George Gould was ap pointed guardian for the Countess de Castellane in a proceeding in the French courts. The creditors claim that the purpose of this proceeding was to get the property of the Coun tess de Castellane away from attack by her creditors so as to enable the Goulds to force a settlement of the debts at their own time and on their own terms. PAPA ZIM PLEASED. Rather Likes Having a Duke for Son-in-Law. New York, Nov. 26-Eugene Zim merman, whose daughter was married to the Duke of Manchester a week or so ago in England, was interviewed here today. He said to the reporter: "I have come here to meet my daugh ter and her husband. After they have rested a few days we will go to Cin cinnati and a reception will be given at my home. The duke is a bright chap. He is also a manly fellow. I like a man who went to work as he did as a newspaper man when he was here Some of his articles were first rate, too. At no time was I opposed to his marriage to my daughter. Those stories are all moonshine." "Is it true that the duke is in a bad way financially ?" asked the reporter. "I guess there won't be any diffi culty about his debts. Not at all. That does not make any difference. I do not care to talk about the mar riage pottion. That is a private mat ter, but there won't be any trouble about his debts. They will be - - well that's all right, that's all right." "Is it likely that the duke may set tle down in America and enter the railroad business?" "No, no sir; the duke is going into British politics. He is entitled to a seat in the house of lords and he is go ing to turn his attention to politics." DUPE FOLLOWS PRINCIPALS. New York, Nov. 26-Word was re ceived at police headquarters today to the effect that a clerk of the Seaboard airline had been arrested at Fernand inda, Florida, for the theft of $50, 000 from that line. It is said that the money taken by this clerk was lost Ithrough speculation with the firm of C. B. Lawrence & Co., that recently failed here and the principals of which are now under arrest. LAKE VESSELS WRECKED. SSandusky, Ohio, Nov. 26 - The steamer M. Bicklen and schooners Shademan azid Malvina went ashore in Stoday's gale on the Marblehead beach and are now being pounded to pieces. The crews were taken off by the life saving crew from Marblehead. The Swrecked veseels were loaded with lum ber. UNKNOWN SCHOONER SUNK. Crew Seen Clinging to Rigging of Wrecked Craft. Kingsville, Ont., Nov. 26-An un knownl schooner is sunk on the middle ground off Point Pelee and the sailors are lashed in the rigging, for the masts are above water. Since Sunday morning the tug Homerule from Amherstburg has been trying to rescue the men, but there is such a high sea running that her efforts have been fruitless. It is feared that the men will die from exposure before aid can reach them. The Hemerule came in here this evening and her crew went to the life saving station at the end of Point Pelee to get the life boat. Captain Hackett informed them that the boat had not been in the water for three years and would not float. The Homerule draws too much water to go near the middle ground in the heavy sea that is running on Lake Erie to night. She will stay here this even ing and leave in time to get to the wrecked schooner by daylight, when another effort will be made to save the crew. The schooner Reuben Dowd is also on the middle ground, but nothing is known of her condition. FIREMEN INJURED. McPherson, Kans., Nov. 26-Five firemen were seriously injured in a fire which destroyed the Merchants hotel today. They were on the third floor and apparently had the fire under con trol when the building collapsed,bury ing them in the ruins. The injured are: Ed Maltby, right side of head badly gashed; Dich Wilson, badly cut and bruised about the face and body; Theodore Branton, one eye knocked out; Joe Perrit, seriously cut; Stuart Baird, injured internally. ONLY QUESTION OF HOURS ALL HOPES OF SENATOR DAVIS RECOVERY ABANDONED. Doctors Say His Death Is Certain. Patient Makes Heroic Struggle . %ainst . Great Odds. St. Paul, Nov. 26-It now seems to be simply a question of hours until United States Senator Cushman Kel logg Davis passes away, reports from his bedside this afternoon being that his strength was slowly ebbing. His physicians do not anticipate dissolution immediately, but practi cally admit that so far as any human agency is able to know death is cer tain. The family have all along been buoyed up with the faint hope that he might have a greater reserve strength and be able to baffle the disease, but today they seemed to have at last abandoned even this faint hope and are anxiously awaiting the end. Last night showed a recurrence of the de lirium of Friday night in fully as pronounced a form and none of the family were able to secure any rest during the night. Only three hours sleep was secured by the patient and during the early niorning today he was noticeably weaker, while as the day advanced his weakness became more pronounced. He was unable to take much nourish ment and there was even difficulty in administering the necessary medi cines. His wife, parents and sisters kept close at hand during the day and all that could be done to alleviate his suffering was done by the nurses and loved onep. When not delirious he sank into a stupor and seemed little conscious of what was passing about him. Doctors Stone and Lancaster alter nate now in spending their nights at the bedside, tonight being Stone's watch. In his moments of semi-con sciousuess the senator will exclaim about his desire to live and express his wish for a few years more of life, as he feels he is needed in the senate. His attendants are much affected with the earnestness with which he states his belief in the necessity for him on the floor of the senate. QUESTION OF DOCTRINES. Tacoma, Nov. 26-A fight between Roman Catholics and Greek Catholics at Wilkeson yesterday developed into a pitched battle with 200 Greeks against as many Roman Catholics, the fighters on both sides being coal min ers. Clubs and iron bars were used and several heads were broken. Fin ally revolvers were brought into use and the bullets caused the mob to flee No one was killed. CLARK GOES EAST. Los Angeles, Nov. 26-W. A. Jlark will leave here tomorrow for the east to remain until the first of the year, when he will return to Montana to further his interests in the senatorial contest before the state legsilature. WEATHER. Washington, Nov. 26-Montana Generally fair Tuesday and Wednes-. day; wetterly winds. ARE TAKING NO CHANCES COLORADO AUTHORITIES PRE PARE FOR TROUBLE. MAY CALL OUT MILITIA Cavalry in Readiness to Assist Game Warden Against Indian Poachers. Denver, Nov. 26-Adjutant General Overmeyer today wired Troop A, state cavalry, at Grand Junction, to be in readiness for an immediate call in case Game Commissioner Johnson's force should not be equal to the Indians in the White river district. This troop of cavalry is much closer to the scene than the Denver troops and can be on the ground within 24 hours. Fear is expressed at the capitol that Commissioner Johnson will make an attack upon the Indians against over whelming odds. The Uintahs and Uncompahgre Utes are not making trouble this year, but White rivers, who once occupied the territory which they have now in vaded. In the past the Indian agents have kept the White rivers on the reservalion because of the bitter feeling of the tribe towards the whites, who, they claim, took possession of lands be longing to them without right or treaty. It is reported that even a larger number of Indians than the 500 pre-. viously reported have left the reserva tion and are slaughtering hundreds of dleer in the* vicinity of Yama and White rivers. Commissioner Johnson will station pickets at the state line to prevent the passing of the Indian pack trains with their loads of plunder from the state. He is determined to arrest some of the Indians with game in their possession, if possible, in order to have the laws regarding Indian raids tested. This afternoon Governor Thomas received a communication from Secre tary of Interior Hitchcock at Washing ton, stating in substance that the d(e partment had sent its Indian agent to scour northwestern Colorado for marauding Indians, but he had failed to find one. There was a hint in the communication that this would offi cially end the correspondence so far as the government was concerned. In stead of reassuring Governor Thomas it had a tendency to make hipm more vigorous in his application of the state law. He has reports from different men on file proving con clusively that Indians have slaughtered over 500 deer in Routt and Blanca counties. JOHNSON GOES AHEAD. Rifle, Colo., Nov. 26-Game Com missioner Johnson and his deputies ar rived here and proceeded to Meeker by stage today. It is a 45 mile ride and will require the entire day. While the commissioner was here he received reports from ranchmen which indicate that the Indians, who are off their reservations. are slaughtering game in a wholesale manner. PLAN IS ILLEGAL. Rosing's Proposed Recount Contrary to the Law. St. Paul, Nov. 26-The republican state executive committee met this afternoon and considerel the proposal of the democratic chairman, Rosing, for a recount in eight counties, four to be selected by each side. After the meeting Secretary C. C. Whitney sent a reply to Chairman Rosing declining to accept the proposition. The com mittee holds that they have no power to enter into such an agreement, and, moreover, that there is no authority for such a partial recount. They state that the law provides and the supreme court has held, that a scrutiny of the ballots can only be had after regular contest proceedings have been insti tuted and the forms.of the law com plied with. While the committee does not as sume to speak for Governor-elect Van Sant, they are of the opinion that he will meet any formal contest m a spirit of absolute fairness. But such a contest must be instituted in the regular way and must comprehend a k~eoount of the entire state, and not simply a few selected counties. CEMENT WORKS BURNED. Easton, Pa., Nov. 26-Fire today almost completely wiped out the ex tensive cement plant of Crouse & Cramp of Philadelphia, located at Martins Ferry. The loss will amount to $200,000, about half of which is covered by insurance. About 200 men were employed at the works. The plant will be rebuilt without delay. CUBANS AND LEE. Former Do Not Regret Latter's Departure from Island. Havana, Nov. 26-At the opening of today's session of the Cuban consti tutional convention, Senor Le Queseda moved the rejection of the resolution introduced Saturday by Senores Riv era, Cisteros and Villu B. Das, ex pressing the sorrow of the convention at the departure of General Fitzhugh Lee. The resolution was rejected thereon unanimously. Senor Rivera said after the session that some of the delegates intended to attack General Lee on the ground that he had not always been a friend of the Cubans and that in view of this General Lee's friends thought it would be better not to press the reso lution of regret. Senor Gualberto Gomez notified the convention that he would present for consideration a motiohl in answer to General Wood's address to the conven tion. General Sanguilly immediately ob jected on the ground Ihat such a pro posal would be entirely out of place, as the address was in the form of a military order, which could not be answered by the convention. He urged tVt it would' be wiser to leave the subject alone as any discussion of it might cause ill feeling between the convention and the military. Senor Le Queseda moved that in the judgment of the convention General Wood's address should not, under any consid eration, be answered by the conven tion, and it was carried unanimously,. BISHOP HALE ILL. Springfield, Ill., Nov. 26 - The Right Rev. Charles E. T. Hale, bishop of Cairo, is critically ill in Cairo. Death is expected at any time. ACCEPT THEIR FATE CALMLY INDIANS WHOM STARVATION STARES IN THE FACE. Order Stopping Rations Leaves Standing Rock Sioux Without Means of Sustaining Life. Fort Yates, North Dakota, Nov. 26 -The Indians have accepted the rec ommendation of Commissioner Jones that their rations be immediately stopped with philosophy. That hundreds will starve slowly to death is a foregone conclusion. Their condition is pitiable. Their crops. were a total failure and their rations are just enough to keep them alive. This reservation is totally unfit for anything but grazing and the Indians can never support themselves by farm ing. As laborers there is absolutely nothing for them to do. The white men can get all the white labor they want and on the reservation outside of government freighting there is noth ing to do. These Indians will never settle down to humdrum farming life. They are in a position to take care of cattle and as herdsmen are a success. With a judioious issue of stock cattle, with proper officers to see that the Indian takes care of his cattle, and in 10 years this reservation will be self-sup porting. A small monthly ration dur ing the winter is necessary for a few years. CONTINUES ITS WORK. Subcommittee Engaged in Framing Rev enue Reduction Bill. Washington, Nov. 26-The sub-com mittee on ways and means bontinued its preparation of the war revenue re duction bill today. During a part of the committee's session former Speaker Reed was present as a visitor. The democratic members of the committee thus far have taken no ac tion as to their programme regarding the bill. If the republican members bring the bill into the house with a rule preventing amendments, it is probable that the democrats will pre pare and offer a substitute, otherwise amendments will be offered by the democrats in committee of the whole. DETAILS OF KID'S DEATH. Salt Lake, Nov. 26-Details were received today of the killing of the supposed "Apache Kid" near Pacheco, Mexico, a few days ago. Three In dians, one of them supposed to be the. notorious "Apache Kid," for whom the United States government has offered a reward of $6,000, were slain. The other dead are a squaw and her child, who fell in the fight. It was not known that one adult was a woman, and the child was not ob served- until after the fight. The shooting was done by two men whom the Indians had robbed and who had followed the band. The men had de cided to let the robbei e go when the latter came forward in the trail that made the shooting necesa.ry. T .' information comes in a letter to !-u . 1 dent Snow and Geo.
