which i u victory for the Esher faction of
the German Evangelical church in its fight
against the Duds faction The case came
before the court on a bill filed by the mis
sionary society of the church of which
William Yost of Cleveland is treasurer
Yilam Yost
to enjoin Michael Kunkel irom acting as
such treasurer His only claim to the title
rested in the fact that he was elected to I
the position at the Philadelphia confer 1
ence which Yost asserted was a represen
tation of the minority Judge Blodgett
entered an order restraining Kunkel from
acting as treasurer
Rev John Schneider of this city who
represents the Duds faction said tonight
the decision did cot affect the merits of the
case They never intended to collect any
funds of the missionary society but only
the free contributions of those who adhere
to Bishop Duds Judge Blodgett granted
Kunkel the privelege of receiving such
contributions to pay missionaries in the
west This is all that is contested for until
the main controversy is settled

Republicans Ready to Do Anything to Beat
NEW YORK Jan 4The corridors of the

Governor Willey May Call an Ex I
tra Session
Important Matters Need Consideration
Tax Question Annie Campbell Sen
tenced Swindler Squires Caught
BOISE CITY Idaho Jan 4rSpecial tele
gram to THE HEIULDNo little interest
is manifested in this state over the proposi
tion to call an extra session of the legisla
ture It was rumored on the streets that
Governor Willey has under advisement
such an action and your correspondent
ailed at the capitol building this afternoon
to interview him on the subject Governor
Villey was free to talk on the subject and
admitted that he had been meditating call
ng an extra session
were clear and many things seemed to de
mand it He said in substance quite a
number of important matters were pro
vided for at the last session besides recent
decision of the state board of equalizations
as touching railroad assessments by
county assessors left this subject in
a great state of uncertainty Section
4S3 of the revised statutes of Idaho
gave the board of equalization full power
to assess any taxable property that has es I
caped assessment or increase the valuation
or add to the amount number or quantity
of property when
have been rendered I vas under this
provision of the statute that the state
board of equalization took action in read
justing railroad assessments in certain
counties The recent decision of the state
supreme court looked to the abrogation of
this power on the part of the board of
equalization The state is left in a queer
position as some railroad corporations
may hold that the county assessors have
no power to make assessments and others
may claim that the state board of equaliza
tion has no power and thus elude paying I
taxes as 1
is derived from taxable property of railroads 1
roads this will seriously cripple the state
Then again an extra session of the Legis
lature seems to be necessary to readjust
the apportionment of Senators and Rep
resentatives The last Legislature created
the counties of Alta and Lincoln and gave I
each its quota of Senators and Representa
tives The decision of the state supreme
court declared such action void and this
makes a reappointment absolutely neces
Then again the Legislature might look
into the matter of prison management and
set the public mind at rest Your cor
respondent asked Do you think it ad
visable to call an extra session I
I am not quite clear yet in my own
mind said his excellency The present
situation seems to demand i I am advis
ing with prominent men in various sections
of the state and will give matters careful
consideration before taking action
So far as you hava consulted public
men governor what seems to be the con
sensus of opinion
Well there is a difference of opinion
though many are not very favorable
The governor will be disposed to look
favorably to calling an extra session I
called it will be done in a few weeks and
the legislature will meet in February to
hold for twenty days It is probable
will be made 14000 as estimated by Gov
ernor Willey Several counties will be put
to the expense of holding extra elections
notably Ada that will have to fill a va
cancy caused by the death of Hon John S
Gray and Elmore by the death of Hon D
B Ethel It is an open question whether
or not an extra session will be called
Latah and Kootenai counties will not have
to hold an extra election io fill the place of
State Senator Wells at present Worlds
leir commissioner Opposition to calling
an extra session is very pronounced in
official quarters but the strong probabilities
ties are that it will be done

NEXV YORK Jan 4A Sun London spe

trusted a man named Martini died intestate
at San Francisco some time ago leaving a 1
fortune of 34JOO000 The sum is large
but so also is the Italian imagination The
facts which are beyond question are that
Martini is one of the commonest names in
Italy and from all parts of the country
hundreds of letters are being received
daily by the civil state department in Rome
from Martinis in all stations of life some
modestly requesting further particulars
and others who form a large majority

NEW YORK Jan 4The Heralds Val
paraiso correspondent says he hears tho
I Chilian government has cabled orders to
Minister Pedro Montt at Washington to
make a sincere apology to the United
States for the unfortunate and I
deplorable attack upon the Balti I
more sailors October 16 last The I
apology is unqualified in character
Other matters which have oeen in dispute
between Chili and the United States are
speedily to be considered by the new ad
ministration From semiofficial sources
he learns the reason xvhy the Santiago police
are kept in the vicinity of the American
legation is the intendente of the city is in
daily receipt of letters containing threats
to burn and sack the legation The
correspondent asserts it is no
secret those who cherish ideas of
war oeiween tne united states and
Chili are the friends of Balmaceda
The correspondent learns the German
minister Guttschmidt offered the services
of his country as mediator on his own per
sonal responsibility This is in line with
his course of action ever since the present

The Correspondence With Chi
WASHINGTON Jan 4The correspond
ence which the President promised to send
Congress relating to the attack upon the
Baltimores sailors at Valparaiso will not
be sent now In fact there is reason to be
lieve some days will elapse before the pub
lic may know officially just what passed
between the department of state and Minister I I
ister Egan on the one side and the Chilian I
minister of foreign affairs and Minister
Montt on the other
The unofficial announcement of the prac
tical completion of judicial proceedings in
Valparaiso and the intention of the Chilian
legal l authorities to punish the three
Chilians convicted of participation in
the assault has given satisfaction
here and is generally regarded as
a distinct concession by the Chihans to the
Uuited States as showing there will not in
all probability be further unduo delay in
the disposition of the case These tidings
have not so far as learned been officially
made known to Secretary Blaine by Min

await the sentence of the convicted Chili

Missouri Tax Law About Express
Companies Valid
The Northern Pacific Is Not Bound to Main
tain 8 Station ThreeThree
Justlcees Dissent
WASHINGTON Jan 4The United States
supreme court today affirmed the decision
of the lower court in the suit brought by
the Pacific Express company against James
M Herbeat and John 1 Wood auditor
and attorney general respectively of Mis
souri By this suit the express company
sought to restrain and enjoin the collection
of a tax of 2 on each 100 of receipts lev
ied by the act of the state legislature
I against express companies doing business
within the state The companys bill at
tacked the constitutionality of the act
as an interference with interstate
commerce and declared it violated
the fourteenth amendment giving equal
protection to all and also as contrary to the
provision of the Missouri state constitution
requiring all laws shall be uniform This
court in an opinion by Justice Lamar says
the contention that the tax is levied upon
interstate commerce is unsound It says the
tax does not relate to interstate business
but entirely to state business and is ex
pressly limited to receipts for business done
entirely within the state and that it was
not the intention of the legislature to inter
fere with or tax interstate commerce In
any way whatever The o her points
raised it also holds are not well taken for
ho i reason the tux applies equally to all
companies doing express business
The United States supreme court ren
dered a decision today in favor of the
I Northern Pacific railway company in the
mandamus suit brought against it by the
Territory of Washington ex rol Hiram
j I Dustin prosecuting attorney of Yakima
county to compel the railway to maintain
a station and stop its trains at Yakima
The bill set forth that Yakima City at
the time of the building of the road was the
county seat and largest town in that
county and the object of the railroad com
pany in refusing to make Yakima City a
railway station was to ruin the town and
enhance the vaiue of the townsite of North
Yakima which it had located on unim
proved lands belonging to the railway com
pany Justice Gray in ihe op mon of the
court says a writ of mandamus to compel a
railroad corporation to do a particular act
nnot nnn to ni hnI o n
111 lUUOLL UUllUg 113 AUUU UL UUlIUlll S UL
running its trains can be issued only when I
there is a specific legal duty on its part to
do that act and clear proof of a breach of
duty The courts have so held even in
the matter of establishing a station
at the terminus of a road The difficulties
in issuing a mandamus are much increased
when it is sought to compel a road to stop I
trains at a particular place The location I I
of stations and warehouses for receiving I l
and delivering passengers and Ireixut in i
volves a comprehensive view of the inter
est of the public as well as of the corpora
tion and the consideration of many crcum
stances concerning the amount ot business
and convenience of a particular locution
from which complaint comes are more ap
propriate to be determined by the directors
of a company or in case of the abuse of
their discretion by the legislature or by
administrative boards entrusted by the
legislature with that duty than by ordi
nary judicial tribunals
Justice Gray says the charter of the com
pany does not impose any specific duty as
to the maintenance and size of stations
and that to compel the directors to be con
trolled by the courts by writs mandamus
in establishing stations would be inconsistent
establsbing statons
sistent with many previous decisions The
findings below he says show people living
in i the surrounding country considered i ns a
community wouiu oe uetier accommoaatea
at North Yakjma than at Yakimi City
The company ueuies the Iraudulent intent
chrrged by Yakima City and it was not
found by tie jury The fact that the town
of North Yakima was laid out by the com
pany on its ou n land cannot impair the in
habitants of that town
Justice Brewer rendered a vigorous oral
dissent which was concurred in by Jus
tices Harlan and Field He said when the
railroad built its line it found a city al
ready established the county seat and the
largest place along its roap for many miles
Every public interest required a station
should be established there Instead the
railroad company went three or four miles
further along and laid out a town on its
own land No reason was given for such a I
course The railroad neglected and aban
doned its public duty to subserve its pri
vate ends Anyone who knoxvs the process
of railway building knows it is a common
thing to build up a town and pull down
another in this manner An established
town offers an insufficient bonus for a sta
tion sometimes the dissenting justices
he said thought the courts had sufficient
power to restrain in such proceedings
The court sustained the law of the state
of South Carolina which provides that the
expenses of the state railway commission
shall be borne by railroads doing business
within the state each road being taxed a
I proportionate share of the expenses of
I maintaining the commission on a basis of
mileage within the state
No Decision in the BojdThnyer Case
WASHINGTON Jan 4The BoydThayer
case involving the question of the citizen
ship of Boyd and as 1 consequence his eligibility
I gibility to the office of governor of Ne
braska to which ne was elected was not
decided oy the supreme court today Inquiry
quiry into the matter developed the fact
that only eight justices sat in the hearine
of the case Justice Bradley being absent
on account of illness The premature an
nouncement that the court had decided the
case in favor of Boyd by a vote of 6 to 3
cannot be correct therefore so far as re
spects the majority by which the decision
is said to have been reached The justices
of course would nothing whatever
say as
to the case in advance of the announce I
ment from the bench of the decision
A curious coincidence in connection with
the publication in advance of what the de
cision of the court would be and the re
spective number of justices in favor of
Boyd and in favor of Thayer was devet
oped in court today The case of the
Northern Pacific against Hiram Dustin
prosecuting attorney of Yakima county
Washington was decided today by a vote
which the publication referred to alleged to
be the decision of the justices in the Boyd
Thayer case In this case the court re
versed the decision of the state then terri
torial court as would be the resultif Boyd
wins hs suit Jn the Boyd announcement
two of the members of the minority were
said to be Republicans and one Democrat
In the Yakima case today two justices are
Republican namely Brewer and Harlan
and one Democrat namely Justice Field
v hether or notsome chance utterance with
respect to this case was overheard and mis
taken for an expression with regard to the
Nebraska governorship contest perhaps
will never be known as the justices con
sider ita violation of the official proprieties
to speak of such matters and anyone giv
ing out news which is supposed to be an
inviolable secret until officially proclaimed
from the bench will naturally not wish to
be known as the author

Edwards who defeated Perry Vedder in
the Chautauqua district is today the big
gest link in the political muddle which en

of the state He is bigger than the legis

Ohio Senatorial Contest
COLCMUUS 0 Jan 4The senatorial
contest this morning shows hopeful evi
dence of an early solution One by one the
doubtful assemblymen are being forced to
yield to public pressure or the clamor of
their constituents and declare themselves
until the doubtful list is becoming so small
thai the result can soon be safely declared
irrespective of their positive action
I Last night Senator Parker of Cuyahoga I
declared irrevocably lor Foraker and this
morning Senator Rawlins of Clark county I
comes out for Sherman This is distinct
gain of one for the Shermanites as
Rawlins had been constantly claimed by I
both sides I
I The1 Sherman people this morning in I
sisted that they would have the support
of Senator Lampson president pro tern of
the Senate hub the Foraher people also
claim him while the Senator himself still
maintains his position of uncertainty
Senator Sherman on oeingquestioned said
1 have received assurances that Lampson
will cast his vote for me
I Strong efforts are being made by the For
aker men generally to induce the labor or
ganizations throughout the state to declare
for Fprakec and against Sherman
I A little excitement was occasioned this
morning by the claim of the Foraker people
that the Sherman forces were endeavoring
i 1 to secure the vote of Representative Rud
noy of Cleveland through the influence of
Chauncey Depew who they said had con
sented to take a hand in the tight for Sher
This meant that Rudney would be de
prived of his position as attorney for the
Lake Shore Michigan Southern Railroad
company at the town in which he resides if i j i
be fails to vote for Sherman The Sher <
man people denounce this statement as ma j
licious and state that neither Del ew nor
any other corporate representatives are
endeavoring to coerce men into supporting

sembly and not acted upon by that body
Sherman Republicans made no attempt
to seat Iden in tho IdenGaumer contest
this morning so the anticipated conflict be
tween the Foraker and Sherman forces in
the senate did not take place The only
dispute was over tho question as to whether
I the case should be referred to the regular
j committee on privileges and elections when
appointed or to a special committee consist
ing of Nichols and Carpenter Republicans
and Forbes Democrat
The latter was the proposition of the Re
publicans and it prevailed by a strict party
vote As the Republican members of the
committee are both Sherman men there is
no doubt they will report in favor of seat
ing Iden without delay The Foraker sena
tors refuse to indicate what course they
will pursue in case the committee reports
in favor of seating Iden
A Republican joint caucus will bo held i
Wednesday evening It looks now as
though the announcement of the standing
of the doubtful ones would not be made
until the evening of the caucus and this
with the possibility of a secret ballot still
leaves the ultimate result uncertain While
a deadlock is not probable it is not im
possible the contest may drift into a con
dition by which neither of the pronounced
candidates can secure a majority of the
Much dispute is created by an open let
ter of Colonel H V Boynton the Wash
ington journalist defending Shermans
labor record and ridiculing the labor com
mittee now striving to defeat the Sena
tor This afternoon the committee sent
Boynton a telegram saying in part
The Republican platforms of 1SSO 84
and S3 pledged the passage of
acts for the exclusion of the
Chinese and by voting against them
Sherman sot himself above party Would
bo have changed it had he been nominated
for the presidency or tried to deceive peo
pie in the Pacific slope Will you inform
us why ho voted against the equalization
bounties in 1875 and against the arrears of
pensioners in 1S84 which big party pledged
itself to pass Why did he oppose the pass
age of the bill to increase to 21 a month
the pension of soldiers who lost an arm and
were only receiving 18 per month and
why did he vote against the bill to limit
the pension of any soldier sailor or marine
to a minimum of IQ per month
The Sherman people the efforts of this
selfappointed labor committee as they
term it with contempt and express indig
nation that Sherman should be accused of
unfriendliness to oxunion soldiers While
all these charges and their refutation
serve as a subject for lively discussion it
is becoming apparent that neither the
labor organizations nor the Farmers al
liance are a factor in the present campaign
The IdenGaumer contest was brought
to a hasty conclusion this afternoon with
out a protest from tho Foraker senators
against the seating of Lien This assures
Sherman ten more votes Five minutes
after the oattx of office was administered
Iden announced to the Associated Press
Im for Sherman for Senator and want it
distinctly so announced

The Sinking of the Chlldxvell
LONDON Jan 4The steamer Nordland
which was in collision with the British
bark Childwell the latter going down with
fifteen of the crew returned to Antwerp
with the bows stove in The pilot of the
Childwell says he saw the steamers light
fifteen minutes before tho collision She
suddenly starboarded her helm ap
parently intending to cross the bows of
the bark The pilot shouted a warning
to the crew but before they could get up
the vessels met The Childxvall was cut
from the port side through to within six
feet of the staaboard side and sank in two
minutes The sea was high and there was
no chance to lower the boats Nine of the
men climbed into the rigging part
of the mizzenmast and end of
the bowsprit remaining above the water
Of fifteen drowned twelve perished
in the ship the other three washed off the
bowsprit when the tide rose The pilot
says the Nordland stood by an hour and
lowered two boats which failed to reach
the shipwrecked men owing to the rough
sea He thinks the men on the bowsprit
at least might have been saved After
being four hours lashed to the mizzen mast
in bitter cold the steamer Ipswich hove
in sight and they were rescued
At Eastbourne Eno They Are
Attacked by a Furious Mob
Police Powerless to Protect Them The Enemy
Capture the Standard It is Gallantly
Rescued An Orderly Retreat
LONDON Jan 4The troubles between
the Salvation army and the authorities a
Eostbourns resulted yesterday in a riot of
unusual violence For a longtime there
has been open war between the Salvation
ists and police The former assert th < j
Eastbourne officials displayed a feeling of
religious intolerance in their treatment of
the army and so determined were the mem >
bers of the Salvation army to maintain
what they deemed
they proposed to introduce a bill in parlia
ment to repel or amend the Eastbourne im
provement act under which the town offi
cials prevent the Salvationists from hold
ing meetings on the streets Yesterdry
the Eastbourne contingent of the Salva
I I tion army was divided into four sections
stationed in different parts of the town
I The police broke up these meetings with
some trouble but in the afternoon sixty of
the army again sallied from the barracks
and proceeded to preach followed by an
immense craxvd who menaced tnem with
all manner of ill treatment Once upon
the beach
in prayer As they did so they linked
arms the better to resist the assaults of the
irreligious mob should the latter take it
into their heads to charge The mob
hooted and yelled and finally made an ugly
rush Some of the Salvationists were
thrown to the ground but immediately re
sumed their kneeling position and contin
ued praying Several times the rushing
was repeated but the Savationists paid no
more attention than necessary to avoid
being seriously hurt A number of police
were present and the mob reviled them
for not dispersing the Savationists As
soon as the praying was concluded the
Salvationists rose to their feet This
seemed the signal for a preconcerted at
tack for the mob immediate y
scattering thorn in wild disorder Many
were struck kicked and otherwise ill
treated The musical instruments used by
I the Salvationists seemed especially to ex
cite the ire of the mob and persons bearing
them were singled out for more than usual
I brutal treatment The mob got possession
of the instruments and after smashing
them throw them into the sea Then a do
i tachment of mounted police charged upon
the crowd They made no distinction be
tween men and women They rode down
i upon the crowd trampling the rowdies
male and female alike under the
feet of the horses Many of the
crowd were seriously Injured The
Salvationists declare the police instead of
protecting them deliberately struck them
and rode over them Their clothes were
torn and hats lost A number of women
lost their skirts and jackets in the wild
rush following the charge of thopolice the
garments being torn off of them in their
desperate struggle to escape being trampled
on by horses During the melee the
standard of the Salvation army
Some Salvationists charged to regain the
flag and a fierce fight resulted Finally
the Salvationists regained their standard
and under a rain of blows succeeded la
jottine away from the mob with the flag
tn their possession After some little
time the Salvationists their clothing
bedraggled and faces showing marks of Ill
treatment rallied around their standard
They formed in regular lines and sur
rounded by the police
Despite this protection they were not safe
from attack for the mob several times
charged upon them and the police were al
most powerless to prevent Injuries being
inflicted Some of the more rabid of the
mob got possession of vehicles and paying
no attention to the police drove deliber
ately into the Salvationists ranks with the
object of running over them
