A SINGLE SUIT Couldn't Be Brought in the U. P. Cases ATTORNEY GENERAL HARMON MAKES ANSWEB TO CAPTIOUS CBITICISM Western Lines Meet and Agree to Abolish High Commissions on North Coast Business Associated Press Special Wire. CINCINNATI, Oct. 2S.—Judge Har mon, who was attorney-general under th* last administration of President Cleveland, today save out the following Statement regarding the proposed sale of the Union Pacific railway: Among the eritieisnis of the Union Pa cific situation it is publicly declare.! by some that the foreclosure of the gov ernment's lien on the main line and of that on the Kansas Pacific line should have been in a single suit and that pos sible loss by breaking up the unity of the properties might have been avoided by afterward consolidating the several suits. This statement, is wholly un founded. As the property is located In seven dif ferent states and judicial districts a Separate suit had to he brought in each The disadvantage of this to the govern ment was plain from the start. Accord ingly a hill for settlement, presented it the request of congress by Mr. Olney, was inserted into the provision author ising foreclosure of alt the government liens in a single court, if such should be come necessary. The bill failed and the provision with it. In the attorney-gen era'/s report for 1893 (p. 2.".) the subject was again urged upon the attention of congress, as follows: "As it may be come advisable or necessary for the government to institute legal proceed ings against one of both of the com panies named, I beg to call attention to the necessity of a law giving some prop er court in the District of Columbia jur isdiction of the entire property and of all the parties in interest. What ha? been heretofore said as to the general necessity of giving one court full juris diction in such cases applies with es pecial force here. Such a provision was included in the bill prepared by Attor ney-General Olney at the request of the last congress (see his report for 1894, p 26). It should now be put in the form of a separate act, so as to be made inde pendent of any particular plan of re organization. Until the passage of such an act any attempt of the government to protect its rights by litigation will be greatly hampered." A general law for all like cases was recommended (p. 24). The attorne* general followed his report by prepar ing a bill which was introduced by both Senators Morgan and Brice on Decem ber 20, 1895, (54 cong. Ist session, vol. 28. record pp. 265, 269). It was not passed, although it was recommended. (Report, 1896, p. 25.) Consequently when the president di rected the foreclosure, provided the too-common fate of junior liens could be avoided by a guaranty, as he had promised to do in his message of Decem ber 7. ISDG, (second session, fifty-fourth congress, p. 1) in case congress should fail to act. the necessity of scparat? suits could not be avoided. The guaranty secured by a large do posit of money, assured by the govern ment, in cash on its second lien, in the distribution of proceeds of sale, at least the principal of all its subsidy bonds and more than half the interest, which ran at 6 per cent for the thirty years, and, un like the principal, was not invested in the property, but went to the bondhold ers. To make this guaranty good re quired a bid at the sali- of about $46,000 per mile, for the entire system, or $50,000 per mile for the part subject to the gov ernment's lien, including the sinking fund, to the benefit of which, of course, the company was entitled. The ar rangement was recommended in writing by every government director and re ceiver. The government's Hen did not cover the entire property of the company, nor even all its lines of railroad, and the re mainder of both property and lines was heavily mortgaged to others. Whether by the terms of the act the government created for Itself more than a mere lien Is by no means clear under the decision of the supreme court, but its claim as n general creditor, if such it have, was not qualified nor surrendered. The sale was to be at public auction, subject to the approval of the court, ami free and open to any and all bidders ■without restriction or condition, as shown by the terms of the agrement sub mitted to congrss at the time, January 28, 1897. (Second session Fifty-fourth Cong., p. 1241.) The suits, which wee: brought in February, were to remain separate, like those brought to foreclose hte prior mortgages, making a united sale of th" entire property possible only by concurrent action of the various courts, with the consent of all parties. The consolidation of the suits has al ways been as much out of the question as foreclosure by a single suit was in the beginning. RATES RESTORED CHICAGO, Oct. 28.—The meeting of the lines of the Western Passenger as sociation with the Union Pacific resulted In an agreement to restore the old basis of commissions on November 12. The Union Pacific stated at the opening of the meeting that it had no objection to the abolishment of the high commis sions that have for th" last two months been paid on North Pacific coast busi ness and on traffic to Colorado common points. This was about all there was to settle, and the meeting adjourned. WON'T BUT THE BRANCH CHICAGO, Oct. 28,-The Tribune to morrow will say: High railroad author ity in Chicago today gave out the decla ration that the reorganization commit tee of the Union Pacific has given up the Idea of buying in the Kansas Pacific branch. The syndicate owns $7,000,00') In first mortgage bonds of the Kansas Pacific and would get the road by pay ing the amount due the government, namely $12,908,272, but the committee does not want the road and it is only trying to keep out other bidders. Instead of paying $13,000,000 or more to secure the Kansas Pacific, the reor ganization committee, it is claimed, has determined to use that money in secur ing control of the Union Pacific, Denver & Gulf railway. THE ENGLISH SYNDICATE LONDON, Oct. 28.—Long cable mes sages have been sent to United States Attorney General McKenna in the mat ter of the Union Pacific railway sale on behalf of the Comtes syndicate, making offers that meet the objections raised. The syndicate claims that Its bid will produce $20,000,000 more to the govern ment than an}- other bid and urges the sale be adjourned until December 15 to enable congress to determine as to the advisability of the acceptance of bonds in part payment. Comtes, Son & Co. contend that by the sale of the Union Pacific separately the United States w ill be loser while they (Comtes, Son & Co.) propose to pay the government in full for both roads. The final cable message sent yester day asserts that the latest Schiff bid is very little better than the previous bids and that once Schiff has secured the Union Pacific he will have the Kan sas division at his mercy and will be able to get it at his own price. The dis patch concluded as follows: "If the government secures a postponement of this sale to December 15 the Comtes syndicate will furnish guarantees to pay in full for the government claims on both roads. Congress can then deter mine whether both roads should not lie sold concurrently. By our bids we have already earned $8,000,000 for the govern ment and are therefore entitled to a fair opportunity to more than four weeks' notice e>f sale of these great railways to secure the property on the basis of get ting some millions more for the govern ment." MEXICANS JAILED Mammoth Tank Fighters Taken to San Diego SAN DIEGO, Oct. 2S.—Eleven Mexi cans, who are thought to be the leaders in the Mammoth Tank fight, were land ed in jail here tonight. The nearest San Diego county officer at the time the fight occurred was Constable Burke of Hedges, fifty miles away. He was sum moned and ordered to arrest the leaders, and, with Deputy Presciado, went to Mammoth Tank station. Arrived there, Burke deputized Constable Jones of Yuma to assist in rounding up the Mex icans, stationing him on the railroad track three miles east of the station, with orders to let no man pass. Jones had not been at his post long when a murderer, much wanted by Arizona of ficials, Jose Rodriguez, came along the track. Rodriguez had had no part in the fight ut Mammoth Tank, and Con stable Jones knew it. He waited for the murderer to approach, and the latter, suspecting nothing, walked into his arms. Constable Jones took his pris oner to Mammoth Tank, where the other officials had, in the meantime, corralled the other prisoners. Ther-» they were placed in a box car and taken to Los An geles en route to this city. The murderer Rodriguez was left in jail at Los Angeles. Rodriguez killed a man named Jervez in Arizona about a week ago, butchering him in a fiendish manner, and escaping across the Colo rado. AUSTRIAN POLITICS A Stormy Session Sees Little Business Done VIENNA, Oct. 2S.—The Reichsrath has had another stormy night session. The leaders of the German parties pro tested against the policy adopted on the suggestion of Dr. Kramerez, the acting president, of discussing motions for the impeachment of the ministry at the morning sessions, and of devoting the evenings to the bill fur the extension of the compromise with Hungary for a year. They protested against it as a violation of the standing orders of the hou?e and of the Austrian constitution, and amid loud applause from the Left and the Socialists' seats they declared they would continue to resist with all their might the decree authorizing tbe official use of the Czech language in 80 -. hernia. The vice president declined to allow tbe motion for the impeachment of the cabinet with reference to the renewal of the sugar bounty law, and called upon the house to proceed to discuss the comp romise bill. Ilerr Tucker resumed his speech c.t 10 p. m., and he was still speaking at 1 o'clock this morning.

POTTER'S PLAN To Settle Sunday Racing Questions HOME RULE FOR SANCTIONS WOULD HEAL TBE BREACH IN RACING RANKS — ) Eastern Cyclists Would Not Be Alien ated and the West Could Have No Kick Associated Press Special Wire. CHICAGO, Oct. 28.—Sunday racing, which has rent in twain the western and eastern realms of the League of Ameri can Wheelmen, may be effectually dis posed of to the satisfaction of all the dis putants of President Potter's edict is in dorsed at the next national assembly. The solution is in the nature of a com promise by which the national associa tion would go on record emphatically against Sunday racing, which would not In any way be sanctioned at the national racing meets. District option, however, which was so earnestly contended for by the Pacific Coast contingent before its secession, would be in practical force, allowing the territory In charge of each member of the national board, to accept local option by securing the consent of that official. Mr. Potter, who has come to Chicago to spend two days, outlined his idea last night. "In this way," said Mr. Potter, "th" East, which is a unit against Sunday racing, would not be alienated from the organization, because the organization would not as such authorize this project. At the same time the Pacific Coast mem bers would not kick because they could exercise free will nnd race all day Sun day if they wanted to. This idea has not been generally discussed and I am sure I do not know how it would strike the majority of the members, but it would reconcile the East with the West, make room in the organization for both ex tremes and in fact, it seems to me, it ought to satisfy everybody. Tho Sunday problem is a delicate one and yet it would not be so incapable of solution as to cause a breach In the organization. "Personally I think a State ought to have the right to race on Sunday if it wants to, and I don't see how anybody else would assume to forbid that right, but I also concur in the opinion of the majority of the members that a general sanction of Sunday racing would do the organization irretrievable injury.' "You are then opposed to Sunday rac ing?" was asked. "I don't know that I can say that, yet I see it will not do to sanction it nation ally." In concluding the interview President Potter said: "It has just been officially announced that Omaha will withdraw her claims to the next general assembly owing to her inability to get support from her merchants, who are engrossed with their exposition, so the probabilities are that Indianapolis, the other leading con testant, will get the next year's meet." A MILE RECORD PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 28—Eddie Mo- Duffle today, at Willow Grove bicycle track, established a new world's record for one mile, paced, covering the dis tance in 1:35 2-5, three-fifths of a sec ond lower than the record made by Jimmy Michael several weeks ago.

MILLIONS FOR MINES LAID DOWN BY AN ENGLISH SYNDICATE Gold Placers Eclipsing the Klondike Said to Exist in the Kotzebue Sound Region SAN FRAINCISCO, Oct. 28—English capital has invested an amount, said to be nearly $500,000, in the purchase of the Grand Victory group ot gold mines on Squaw creek in El Dorado county, seven miles southeast ot Placerville. This is the largest deal which has been made in California for some time and the inten tion is to work the property on an exten sive scale. The purchaser is the Trans atlantic Mines Purchasing Syndicate, limited, of London, and the Bellers were H. E. Pickett of Placerville and J. E. Wright of Indianapolis, Ind. The first payments have been made and the prop erty has been taken possession of by the English syndicate, which has placed J. Ralston Bell of Glasgow, Scotland, in charge. The reports on which the Invest ment was made showed a large body of low grade ore, the vein being 215 feet wide and the ore running $4 and $5 a ton. The property comprises 160 acres of min eral land. ALASKAN PLACERS SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28.—Captain B. Cogan of the steam whaler Thrasher asserts that there are richer gold fields on Kotzebue sound than any yet discov ered on the Yukon. When the whaler was at Point Hope on her way into the Arctic last spring the Indians came ir with a quantity of gold in small sealskin bags. They said there was plenty of the same stuff in the Buckiand, Noatak and Kowak rivers, and what they had had been scooped up with their paddles. Cup tain Cogan, Captain Witham, late of the steam whaler Fearless and one or two other whalers are bound for Kotzebue sound next spring. The whaling bark Northern Light, now in Oakland creek, will probably be fitted out and will carry the party to Point Hope. RETURNING MINERS SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28— The Alas- j ka Commercial company's steamer Ks- I celsior, Captain Higgins, arrived to- j night fourteen days from St. Michaels and eight and a half days from Un alaska, the only intermediate port ut which she stopped. She brought 800't ounces of gold, all belonging to the Alaska Commercial company. No min ers came down on her. She carried three passengers, Mr. and Mrs. Ducoc. who started some time since for Daw son City, but got no further than St. Michaels, and Edward Hamilton, the journalist. There has been no recent communication with Dawson City, the Yukon being impassable, but the latest information received from Fort Yukon, which now constitutes the base of sup plies for the places further north, Is to the effect that the people are swarmin;.' out of Dawson and Circle Cities by every possible means to escape suffering and possible starvation. Small boats can still be used on portions of the Yukon, and in one of these an agent of the Alaska Commercial company came down from Circle City to Fort Yukon. He confirms the reports of a great scarc ity of provisions at all the mining camps. Those who succeeded in get ting out in time will be very fortunate, for hunger will surely be the fate of most of the winter dwellers on the Klondike. The rush to escape from the gold fields exceeds the influx, and the indications are that a large colony will winter at Fort Yukon. Captain Higgins of the Excelsior con - firms the news of the probable loss of a portion of the whaling fleet, but can add no details to those brought down by the Thrasher. He also tells of the rescue of the men of the Navarch from an ice Hoe, but says that there were sixteen saved, and not fourteen, as at first reported. It is not expected that much, if any, more gold will come down this season, unless some of the miners succeed in reaching sailing points by land routes from the interior. Sam Wall and some other newspaper correspondents got as far as Circle City, eighty miles from Dawson, but were ob liged to retrace their way to Fort Yukon, where food is obtainable. They may re main there until spring, but it is moro than likely that if an opportunity af fords they will try to reach St. Michaels and return home to recuperate for a fresh start next year. Captain Higgins says It is worse than folly for any one to go to Alaska now. A Strange Case. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28. — Luella larrle, a pretty Uttle girl ot 16 years, Great ..aScilCe ..OF..
