Chicago, Dec. 18. An agreement
was reached this morning .between
counsel for the Harriman and Fish in
terests in the Illinois Central litiga
tion that the annual meeting-schedul:
ed for today be postponed until to
It is believed that Judge Farrar will
occupy all today and possibly a por
tion of tomorrow before his argument
on behalf of Fish is concluded and at
torneys for Harriman will close the
hearing and it is not believed possible
that they will finish before Thursday
evening at the earliest.. Final action
on the injunction obtained by Fish
can hardly be expected until after the
Harriman Not Coming.
William Nelson Cromwell, who was
tjie principal counsel for the Harri
man faction during the October meet
ing, arrived from New York yesterday.
Mr. Harriman will not be able to
come to Chicago, owing to a severe
cold. Cornelius- Vanderbilt, Robert
Goelet and the other New York men
interested are expected today.
Mr. Fish issued a statement last
night in which he said that
the report that he proposed In the
event of obtaining control of the road
to displace employes who have solicit
ed proxies for the present administra
tion is untrue. He declared he would
show no vindlctlven'ess.
"I am only after the scalp of E. H.
Harriman," he said, "and of those
men in the directory who are domin
ated by him. because I believe their
presence in the directory is an injury,

hands of strangers, who are. expected
to buy up a part of the estates he is
forced to sell to pay creditors, the Due
de Chaulnes, engaged to marry Miss
Theodora Shonts, has had their coffins
removed to other burial grounds.
Unles- help comes from some unex
pected quarters, the Due will see his
beautiful chateua De Sable sold at
auction. He tried to arrange a private
sale, but there were no purchasers, be
cause creditors insisted on an extreme
price in the hope that Theodora
Shonts would come to the Due's rescue
and buy the chateau to present to his
daughter after her marriaere. But Mr.
Shonts did nothing of the kind.

NEGRO WHO FORMERLY LIVED
HERE GOES TO PENITENTIARY
FOR FIFTH TIME.
Des Moines, Dec. 18.—For the fifth
time in his life, Crede Bailey, colored,
stood before the bar of justice and
received a sentence to the peniten
tiary. Judge Brennan gave him an
indeterminate sentence at Fort Madi
son not to exceed twenty years.
"I am not guilty, Judge," declared
Bailey when the court asked him if
he had anything to say why sentence
should not be pronounced. "I tell you
I have been persecuted. I have been
under the care of a doctor ever since
last March and every time the police
caught me walking to his office they
arrested me. They placed vagrancy
charges against me and kept me In
jail nearly all the time."
But Crede was out long enough to
break into a boarding house and steal
a gold watch, and some cash from on-i
of the roomers.
Detective Andy Brackett, who ac
complished his capture, as well as the
remainder of the police department,
