Supreme Court Sustains
Lower Court.
Until the Case is Tried on Its Meriis
the Receiver Will Manage
the Property.
Special to the Inter Mountain.
I Helena, Feb. 20.—The supreme court to
; day in an exhaustive opinion by Justice
! Hunt declined to issue the writ of pro
hibition prayed for by the Boston and
Montana to prevent Judge Clancy from
I carrying out his ruling in the case of
Burdette O'Connor vs. tile Boston and
Montana for appointment of a receiver i
and accounting. The court holds that !
Judge Clancy has jurisdiction and tiiat j
upon the showing made the company is
^ not entitled to a writ. |
I rp, ^ re , . . . , TT . -, 1
! .™ e effeet of . ,he decision is (hat Hinds
ill be placed in charge as receiver pend- !
ing the trial of the issue alleged in O'Con- ;
nor's complaint, unless of course the Bos- I
ton and Montana commence other pro
ceedings to prevent his assuming charge.
As soon as the court announced its de
cision Judge DeWitt asked for a stay of
the court's judgment. The court granted
ten days. During that time it is pre
sumed more proceedings to keep Hinds
: out of the receivership will be com
; menced.
; Discussing the question involved in the
appointment of a receiver and other al
! legations the court says in part:
The appointment of a receiver is asked
as an ancillary to the suit and pendente
life only. He is to take possession and
manage the affairs of corporation under
direction of the court while the charges
made by O'Connor against the trustees
of the Montana company are being in
vestigated upon trial. As a shareholder
O'Connor has a right to ask this relief
and in doing so he has brought himself
squarely within the doctrine of the State
vs. District Court, 19 Mont., 324, the rea
soning of which we must approve and
here apply. It does not necessarily follow
that the appointment of a receiver pen- ,
dente lite means a dissolution of the cor
j poration or its destruction. It means that
the district court if it acts will in the best
interests of all concerned appoint some
one to be regarded as its officer, to take
charge of the property in litigation, but
the corporation's existence need not be
destroyed. The person to be appointed
is. in law an indifferent one, to be clothed
with the power to receive and preserve
Tj , the property' and assets of the corpora
i' and its shareholders for the benofl
j) of whoever may finally be declared to be
entitled to them. The principle upon
which the court may act is that in the
order to secure the property, the subject
matter of litigation, to its owners, the
court itself by order appointing a receiver
mav say that it is inequitable that any
f party to litigation should have possession
of the property of the Montana company
and the issues and profits thereof pend
ing the litigation m which O'Connor, as
» shareholder, asks an equitable share.
"We cannot grant the writ upon the
showing made of Judge Clancy's preju
dice or enmity. That argument must be
dismtesed as without an)
record. The fact that Judge Clancy does
not like Mr. Forbis, one of several coun
sel for relators, and that he has decided
various cases against relators and is on
friendly terms' with the officers ot the
Montana Ore Purchasing company, and
may not select a fit person as receiver,
if lie appoints one, is far from sufficient
to oust the lower court of jurisdiction.
"If the lower court shall issue
the in
junction prayed for by O'Connor enjoin-j
ing the individual defendants sued from
exercising functions as trustees of the
Montana company, or enjoin the New
Ü : York corporation in respect to matters
i- mentioned ill the order to show cause, its
Jj action can lie reviewed by appeal from
4': guc h order; or, if any action may be
,ÿ I taken in suspending the powers of de
4 fendants as directors, or removing them
4 from their positions as trustees of the
Jj Montana corporation, remedy may be
foundation of
sought by appropriate proceedings.
The power of a court of equity to sus
4 pend or remove trustees of a corporation
p)! is a very doubtful one. Whether it exists,
9! or to what extent it goes if it exists, has
pJ I not been argued very fully by relator's
9 i counsel, and is not discussed at all by de
fendants. Under such conditions, con
sidering the great importance of the
question, we prefer to refrain from ex
pressing an opinion upon it, particularly
where no unusual harm is apt to ensue
by not doing so at this time.
•'A writ of prohibition being largely a
discretionary one wo have concluded not
to issue it to prohibit the court from act
ing in this respect. In other respects
hereinbefore discussed relators have not
made a case to entitle them lo its issu
anee. The writ is denied and petition dis

New Î ork. Feb. 2A. A special to the
Herald from Washington says: President
McKinley has determined to reward sev
eral general officers for gallantry during
the Cuban and Philippine operations. !
Upon the retirement of Brig. Gen. M. P« j
Miller on March Kith Col. E. Y. Sumner,
now brigadier general of volunteers, will
be appointed brigadier general in the
regular army. No reward can be given
to Maj. Gen. Otis until after June 16th.
1900, unless the army reorganization bill
shall pass. Gen. Otis holds only the rank
of brigadier general in the regular ser
vice. He will be appointed a major gen
eral upon the retirement of June 16. 1909,
of Maj. Gen. Wesley Merritt, but the
president would like to confer promotion
upon him sooner should he have the op
portunity to do so. Gen. Otis will he the
next major general of the regular service
appointed. Although Brig. Gen. D. W.
Flagler does not retire until June 24, the
gossips in the war department are al
ready talking of his successor. It seems
to be generally conceded that Col. J. M.
Whittmore will receive the appointment
of chief of ordnance.

men are awaiting Reyes' arrival in
Granada to flock to his standard. The
conservatives are volunteers and engage
in their ordinary tasks during the (lay,
while ready at any time to respond to the

they would prefer Clarence, the exiled

steamer Sunniva was Adam Espinosa of
Blueflelds, nephew of Gen. Guan P.
Reyes, the revolutionary leader. Scnor
Espinosa states that his uncle, Gen.
Reyes, had proclaimed himself provis

the Indians of the Mosquito coast and
with the aid of Americans in the Blue
fields, has probably an army of 900 or 1,
000 men. The government at Managua, I
Espinosa learned, has sent 800 men to at
tack Reyes at Blueflelds. The troops un
der Reyes had gone up the river to Rama.

force and it was probable that a battle
bad already been fought. Scnor Espinosa
says the cause of (he discontent against
President Zelaya is widespread and well
grounded. His uncle had heretofore been
an intimate friend and supporter of Ze
laya, but recently he had not been able
to approve nor support Zelaya's conduct
as president.

New York, Feb. 19.—'The Herald says:
A fortnight will probably determine
whether the controlling power for supply

that prior to the appearance of the
American capitalists a foreign syndicate

Loubet Has No Easy Task Gov
erning France.
And Opposition Press Takes The Op
portunity to Malign Him—
Integrity Unimpeacliabie
New York, Feb. 20.—A dispatch to the
Tribune from Paris says: Never before
has a president of the French republic
been confronted from the very hour of
his election with such hostile demonstra
tions nor prosecuted by such an abusive
press. Loubet, like Cassimir-Perier, was
coalition and
the nominee, not of a mer
, .
I ' las 1 nc support of almost the entire re
_ I publican party, but, like Cassimir-Perier,
j he is of sensitive temperament and reads
tlie newspapers containing gross libels on
his character, with passioned mind. The
j editorials of the nationalist and the anti
Semitic press today almost justify M.
Cornell's article in Figaro in which the
French political arena is compared by
that facetious royalist to a "den of hy
enas, tigers and jackals."
This morning the president's first im
pu!se was one of discouragement, but in
spite of the noisy shouts of derision,
which continue tonight, as merrily as
yesterday, it becomes hourly more appar
ont that the masses of the people believe
in Loubet and in I he republic. The ser
ious papers like the Temps, the Journal
des Debats and the Liberté, come out
strongly in his behalf and this is also
the position taken by an overwhelming
majority of the newspapers throughout
the country especially in the south. Lou
bet enjoys the enormous advantage of
never having expressed any opinion on
the Dreyfus revision and his views on this
point are still 1 unknown to his closest
friends. The conviction of those in the
president's confidence, is, come what
may, that there will be no flinching from
responsibility as was the ease with Cas
Millevoye's Patrie, Drrumovt's Libre
Parole, the Echo de Paris and the Eclair
contain the most violent articles that
have yet appeared against the head of
the state. Even the fashionable Gaulois
indulges in sneers at the president's hum
ble origin and rustic habits and draws
the following picture of Loubet's home
I ^
lire: I
"Jt is true that Loubet did not wear his
his shirt collar. His wife, who also comes
from the little town of Montelimar, near
the itliine, midway between Lyons and
Marseilles, is a good cook and knows how
■ to slew a rabbit better than anyone. A
strong dose of garlic invariably perfumes
1 the dishes in the Loubet household and
i to remedy this, Loubet, who, in the dia
I lect of the country is called Loubette by
I his wife, is in the habit of taking from
! the rack one of his well-colored pipes and
smoking it, expectorates freely on the
floor, no matter what the quality of the
j carpet may be. Mme. Loubet is a loqua
' cious woman and a good housekeeper.
She speaks with a strong southern ac
cent. The new president will be a diffi
cult pupil for M. Crozier, the chief of
fi. Loubet does not ride horse
back, so that Montjarrel. the chief of the
{presidential staid-s, will lie disappointed,

Such is a fair example of the exasper
aiing articles which fill page after page
of the nationalist reactionary press. The
Matin publishes a detailed biography of
the president and calls attention to Lou
bet being the first president of the repub
lic except Thiers, who came from south
ern France. The Matin adds that Loubet
has a marked southern accent and that
his mother,a venerable woman of 84 Years
]jyes on a farm near Montelimar and al
ways wears a peasant's headgear.
Loubet is not wealthy. His fournie con
sists of only $70,000 or $80,000. The public
feels convinced that Loubet's honesty
and integrity are unimpeachable not
withstanding de Beaurepair's aecusa
ti,,ns of complicity in protecting some of
his friends, from prosecution in the Pan
ama affair which is the only thing in his
long career which his bitterest enemies
have been able to rake up against him.
