Tho Stipro.no Collrt met to-dttjr nl delivered opinion)) in tho following eases: BY JUI10K WAGNKlt. Amanda K. Games ct. id.. Respondent, vs. Horace Allen, et. al., Appellant. Appeal from Jackson Circuit Court. Judgment nfllrnVed. Tills was a suit by plaintiffs to set aside it con- vcymicc of real estate made under a poWer of sale In a mortgage, and praying (o be allowed to redeem. On a hearing f the case, the deed of conveyance was set aside, and the prayer grunted. Tho plaintiffs are tho heirs and repre sentatives of tho mortgagors, and it appear that in 1S5D, the mortgage wag made to Horace Allen, one of tho defendants, in consideration of a certain obligation mado and executed by one of tho parties of the first part, the condition of which was, that If the maker of the convey. unco should pity or cause to be paid. te the conveyance to be void. othti wNe to remain In full forco and effect, and the party of thi first part, or the Marshal ot tho Kansas Cily Court of Common Pleas, was empowered to proceed to srll tho mortgaged property, or any part thereof, at public vendue, to the highest bidder, for cash In hand, after giving thirty days notice of Hie time, place and terms of sale. It, was further provided that the said Allen should w ith the proceeds of the s.ile, pav, first, the expen ses of the trust; nnd next, whatever might be in arrear and unpaid on the note, and the re mainder, if any. to the parlies of the first pari, or their legal representatives. Defendant Allen was a resident of Ohio; Siniilu his agent In Kansas Cily. requested Marshal Ilnyden to sell under power contained in mortgage, and at sale, April IS. ISI'2. Smiili became tho purchaseror the sum of 3.000, receiving deed dated June 21. 1S02, conveyed to Allen for recited considera tion of 9i.3:0. It hoing contended to the contrary, the Court in its opinion hold the naming of party of first, part as trustee to sell, was a clerical error pa tent on its face; that by terms of deed, Allen and the Marshal, were co-trustees; Unit Smith, being Agent of Allen, the sale to him was the same as sale to Al en, his principal. The Court therefore, sustains tho right of plaintiffs to re deem. Rogers fc Peck. Respondents, vs. W. A. Clos- liel, Appellant. Appeal from Jackson Circuit Court. Alllrined.

That airreenient was not carried out between grantor nnd grantee, but. another substituted between tliein. by which transfer was made. The defedant then refuse I to pay the $IM be. cause sale was not made as per the first agree. ment. The Court hold that the. defendant was bound to plaintiff by his agreement made to the third party.

The opinion in Ibis case is mi a motion fc re hearing. The proceeding was by quo warranto in 'he common pleas court bv which defendant was ousted as MavorofKnobNoster, the Judgment (,( ouser being reversed by the Supremo Court. When first considered it was with reference to the two acts of the LegMatnre. one incorporat ing the town of Knob Nosier, jmd the othr amendatory and supplemental thereof, referred to In the delei dant's return, as said aetB were pnblMied In the publi-heil session acts of 1S50 and PS70, by which it appears that a large por tion ot llie same territory included in the boun daries of the town of Knoli Nosier, as defined by tho act of l&M), was also Included in Iho territorial limits of said town as iMlned In amendatory act of 1S70. The court therefore held Hint the act fl870 was properly iimimend atorv act, changing and extending tho limits of an existing corporation which had been incor porated previous to tho adoption of the present constitution, and the act as valid and not In con flict whh the 5th section, art, 8 of present con stitution. But on motion fur rehearing It was made to appear that the act of 1H70 Included no part of the original town of Knob Noster as in corporated by act or WW. an I was in fact an at tempt to create a new corporation in evasion of the constitution by calling It an amendment to an old corporation and by giving it tho sumo name, the corporation thus being created being on different territory and having less than 5000 Inhabitants. Tho court therefore held tho net to bo unconstitutional and void. Tho defendant ill the case Inststed however that If Iho act was void. Iliero was no corpora tion, no such office as mayor, and no one could usurp its duties, and therefore quo warranto was not proper remedy. While saying thut this view was not without foundation, tho court holds under tho circumstances of the case it was the better and so affirms the judgment. I1Y .M'DGK N'APIOX. J. Hambrlght, d. o., vs. CO. Krockman et nl, p.e. Error to Jackson, llovcrsed and ro mar.dud. This wa-s :i proceoiling instituted b- ono Harubi lglit, as n purelmsur under a salo mado by tlio trustee Jn a deed mnvcvlns land to secure" Ifnrabrljrht. nnd the oliject of tin) petition Wits to establish tho enttit nbl titln rt thd grantee in the docul of trust nffiiinst llro defendants, cliiiminr to be tenants in eoitininn with him or his wife ol the lepif title' transferred to the plaintiff. The lants n-t contriA'-e.i IVd were Hint in 18(18. nt ii sale of land hv.RsVkson county, the estate of one Colconf, br5 Administra tor, AVm. Cogswell, bueariifl'niircliuser; but before the udiiiitiistriitor ni.'.tli- lilm a deed Cogswell died. Lmving three daugh ters, one tho wife of Mntliews. and the two others married and made deleiidants in the ease. In ISfii), eleven years niter this sale, the administrator made a deeil'tor the land to these three daughters ol Cogs well's, he having been advised to do so bv bis law ndvisor. It would seem trom this that the purchase money had not been fully paid till this lime. About the same time, in lsiiii, iuntnews mm wue uorrow ed of plaintiff. Hanibriglit. about (!M) and made a deed ot trust to II. oon- son. as trustee, conveying the same land, to seeure thepavmeut of lllis sum. Wood son was authorized losell in delatiltof pay ment and aCter special notice "at tin- Court-bouse dour in the City of Inde- letiiletice.'' It seems that when the tune lor the aale tinder the Advertisement ar rived, and for sometime prior thereto. I he Court-house at Independence was under going repairs and had been in lact par tially taken down, and the courts were held in an upper room of a building, on Public S(ti!i'-e, over a hnnlt. which had been unpninlei liv order of lite county court to Ihti transaction of public business during the reconstruction of the Court house. These tacts were not in contro versy, 1 nit the petiiion alleged Cogswell's purchase as mere uoni'iial ; that the ad ministrator made the sale to h'm at his instance, but that his son-in-law, Malh ews, was the real purchaser, who, being in failing circumstances, pi ured his father to buy the land for him. advancing the money to pay tor it. this being done to protect the properly from Mathew's creditors. The plainliff therefore prayed that .ilalliews be decreed the real owner, and Unit the deed to Cogswell's heirs be considered lor the sole bein-lit ct Math ews. On submission of evidence under in s!rue'ious. the jury lottnd for the plaintiff and the court entered r decree which de cree was olijeel"d to on two grounds, first, that the sale nt the door ol the bank building, occupied us a court-room, was not such a sale as the deed required. Tins p'Mut- the court held was not well taken. The second point ,vas. that Hie testimony of Hambrlght in regard to Mathews' admissions, or declarations to him, when he proposed to borrow the money, were inadtni-sable. which point the Court sustains on the ground thai Mathews could not make declarations prohenng up his till.1, nor could he confess away Iho rights of others, his co-defendants, which decla rations were to the effect of destroying the title of Cogswell, who was dead, tol l of Cogswell's heir-, and to admit the complicity of Cog-well in a eoneeiied fraud upon Mathews' creditors.

The only question in this eae was as to p.v pricl.y of the iu-iruelion given by tho Court n follow : "The Court hi-trileis the jury that if t-y be lieve from the tvideiiee that on llie 13 h d.iv of September. 1X73. the plaintiffs lean mare was struck by t'.io defendant's engine, while running one of it trains, and killed, an I that said mare nt. tho tmi ! of the killing, was on a public, road winch was crossed l,y defend. irr's track, and that defendant failed to ring, or can -e to lie r ung a bell, when nt udi-tance of at lea-! eighty rods, from said crossing, and to continue to ring said bell until said engine and train had crossed tlic road; or if lliey believe the defendant or its agents failed to sound a steam whistle attached to tho engine when a least eighty rods from such crossing, and continue to sound such wistlo intervals, until the engine and train had crossed tho said-road, they will fuel for llie .ilainr.1-" Tho CV'i'l hold, that as a mailer of law, the lower Com t correctly declared tho failure lo ring tlio hell or sound Iho whistle nt the point designated',.

Evpr since Wiley E Co. mado their now prop osition to build a narrow. Instead of a wide gauge road, our press has changed In Its advo cacy from the one to the other, fading to s'vo imv reason why W'lev ,t Co. should not bo held to their former proposition, much more favora ble to us. What guarantee hare we now that even should the railroad company agree lo such nil extraordinary proposition as the last, that it would bo carried out? Are these gentlemen supposing that they arc dealing with children to whom it is only necessary to make a promi-e in order lo secure acceptance? Their ."si lb Iron to n yard roa-l sounds childish so far as a useful road to the community Is ciieerued. Their ilno.cn:) dollar paid up slock propo-Hlon, and Joo.tlOO dollar first mortgage bonds may do very well for them, but lo expect to have it accepted, is. I think, assuming a credulity not found among us. The advocacy of tho building of a railroad lo the Moroau, in the hope that in five, years the road will be extended, borders on insanity. Such a road world at once transfer what trade Jefferson citv possi s-cs in that dh lion, its termimis. It would do mir. It would cut oil, on account of the gauge, all probabilities of the Alton ,t Chicago llaiifoad In building or aid In building the road. It would make a reloading of freights, ili-tiii' d lo other markets m ary, thereby cau-hig additional Is and delays. The local prof! s at which t'i" Tribune hints, woul 1. as we are in competition in the market to which the freights go, have to conic out of the pockets of our merchants, if t Ii-y a-.-e llie ship, pet's. As to local freights, they would be un loaded whellicr brought on a narrow or wide gauge. I mil, however, a decided advocate ol a narrow-gunge, provided we can get connections so as to let freights going to oilier markets pass without change. A narrow-gauge road has alrea dy been commenced, and nenrlwenlv miles gra ded. In St. Louis county, from St. Louis in the direction of Howell's Kerry. This would leave n gap of ninety miles to conn -ct wish such a road here. When the crisis interfered with the progress Df the work, arrangements had been made liy Mr. II. Clay Kwing and Judge Krekel, then Directors of our road, lo have llie St. Louis Company, who havesulllelent capital, capital sub-crib' d, lo declare an extension of their road on the North side of the river to Jefferson City. At the tlni i this extension was made the g: i-,tleinan la-t named, at the request of liie lloat il, al -o examiird the St, Lmiis ,t Cairo ntirrow-gau.-e road, and made a verbal report, which sr-inn of the present iM"tnh"i-s n licet. As (here is a narrow-gauge mad building fr"iu Kan-as City to St. Louis, the ar rangements indicated would be sure In bring that road to our tlly, givii-g u-the river. I'acitie, Chicago, and narrow-gllage i'uail. fl? iiinpeil f.ir i for 1 ii-ines--. The nr;-ov-gnage railroad enterprises mentie'iii d. are delayed by the crisis, and will again be tal:en up when it shall have passed. We should lake ours up with theirs, and no: to the Moreau, but through to tin; bor der of our State, and through such of Iho coun ties southwest of us as will .lo their part of the work. Let us earnestly set about lo unite ail inlere-ls southwest of us in a narrow-gunge road so as to l o ready to go to work when the crisis shall have pawd. We cannot do it be fore, as our bonds, though fhe best of county bonds hi Iho market, would not now sell for fifty cents on tho dollar. This or less is what Wiley it Co, in their proposition estimated them at. One word as to the benefits of narrow gauge road". Tills con-Ms not so much in the reduc tion of cost of building as In the cheap currying of freights and passengers. A good solid road bed, with nt least iiO lb. Iron to Hie yard, and corythht!i else corresponding, so as to obtain through the weight ot engine tho necessary tractive power, light, (say from 3 to 5 ton) freight cars, nhie to carry S to 10 ton of paying freight, will reduce cost of transportation one-thh-.l by avoiding the currying ft dead weight. Let us by no inean- put into the road 100,000 or loO.OOO dollars more, and then have no road ami be compelled, ultimately, to Invest to an extent beyond our ability and fall Into the ranks of repudiating counties because unable to pay our taxes. Wo have gone far enough, and let us not add anoiher mistake to the one already committed. Warnings are at hand in tho vast numbers of suits now pending against nany of the b"st counties In the State. They came In volved not so much by fraud as by a mad de sire to have roails at any cost. Tax-Paykk.

Tho Cashier of tho People's Saving Institution 3Iis.sing and tho liunk Doors Locked. Gsi,000 Worth of Excitement From S'. Louis Evening Journal of the 1st. Persons having occasion to visit the People's Savings Institutiod, corner ol Park and Cnron delet avenue, this morning found tho doors of that bank locked and were astonished at read ing Ibis aniiou'ieement posted up let the main main entrance : St, In;is. Feb. 1, lST.'i. The default and disappearance of the cashier of Ibis bank compels it to close lis doors. As soon as an examination uf the condition of Hie bank Is made we will inform onr depositors and stockholders. Tiik DiiiKcioits or THK ri:oi'i.K's Savinu iNSIIIfTIOX. Inquiry developed th" fact that the cashier, Edmund W'.ierpel, was missing mid the vaults of the hank did not contain a sufficient amount or fiiuds wilii which to transact any sort of busi ness. Just exactly how things stood was n difficult problem to solve. The news of the closing of the bank spread through the southern portion or the city like wild-llr. and brought an excited crowd of peo ple, men and women, to the building. They were loud in their demands, denouncing the eonc 'ru a- a fraud and threatening mob vio-. lence to I he ouVcrs. The depositors are largely composed of the middle and poorer classes, and of course, in th" event of a norMianent suspen sion of the bank, will siill'-r almost irreparable damage. A strong detail of police guarded the building aed circulated through the crowd and. as none of the bank olll -ials appeared on the scene, matters assumed a quieter aspect. Still at the hour ot going to press large numbers of persons nre congregated in the vicinity of the place, disfiis-ing the probabilities. It leaks out that Wnerpi 1 on Saturday la-t drew s-IIJ.OOO on checks, since which time he has not been seen. This looks bad. hut there nre those of his friends who are disposed to look at the matter with some hope that all will yet turn out corrcc;. They argue that he may have d. awn the amount fur the purpose of meet ing checks, drafts and other paper maturing to day, mid that some accident delays his personal appearance at his desk at the hank, lint then Wuerpel was so well known Hint his where nbouts, if in the city, should have been discov ered ere this, t His family an; ignorant of his whereabouts, having seen nothing of l.ini since Saturday. Some -ay he was at the bank yesterday, while a gentleman iui'ortn.'d our reporter that the luueh laiUe.-l-of cashier had been seen this morning in the western part of the city. And now as to the ellecl : If it finally be comes certain that Wuerpel has absconded, the People's Saving Institution is at an end. Its credit and -landing have not been the best for sometime past mid this will finish it. 'Atone time llie concern ranked with the best of them but had investui 'iits. a too careless or liberal policy, and other unbusiu-s: like ways, lei to its speedy d iwnwavd career.
