Snap Judgment Taken. With notice to a favored few only the appointment of Joseph I. (irceiihut. of Peoria, and E. F. Lawrence, of Chicago, as receivers of the Distilling and Catlh f ceding Company, was secured in the Uni ted States Court on Monday evening. This order of court was made in a chan cery suit nominally commenced by dis satisfied stockholders. Persons who are familiar with the methods of the present trust management se in this suit but another move in the game these ollicials have been playing. It is curious to note that out of the total of .'.."ooo-) shares of the company only l.Too are represented by the complainants in the suit. Since the formation of the stockholders" com mittee in New Yolk President iJreonhut and his aids have sect that their term of control would not last beyond Jin annual meeting in April. Thin would come in vestigation of methods and management, wit It what result is b-t known to those familiar with the inside workings of the trust. To get into court under the shelter of a friendly receivership was of course desirable. This has now been accom plished in the most adroit manner, but whether it will stick or not is quite an other affair. Nations Hurt by Fact ions.

Chicago enjoyed the distinction Sun day and Sunday night of being the coldest place in the United States. At r:.lO a. m., the mercury recorded nine degrees be low zero. At If a. in., it was eight below, and from then until 0 in the evening it grew gradually warmer, until only one degree below was shown. Then' the tern p rature began rgain to fall, and not un til Monday morning did it get warmer than (I degrees below" zero. Monday the cold was intense, not once mounting above zero. Beports from all over the country are that a thick covering of snow protects wheat. So far it is believed fruit trees are unhurt. Wreckage, identified as belonging to the missing (Jraliam & Morton propeller Chi cora, was discovered in the ice off South Haven, Mich., Wednesday, proving with out a question that the famous passenger boat, .once the pride of Lake Michigan, l as gone to the bottom. This settles the awful doubt that has been hanging over the fate of the vessel since she was first reported lost Monday afternoon. By the sinking of the Chicora twenty-six lives were undoubtedly lost. It would have been imjiossible for them to have kept a small boat afloat in the gale, and had they succeeded in doing this the exposure to icy air nnd water would have killed them in less than twenty-four hours. The Chi cora carried, including Captain Stines, a crew of twenty-five, nnd there is said to have been one passenger,. Mr. Pearl, of the drug firm of Howard & Pearl, St. Joseph. Chicago went to sleep Friday night many hours earlier than usual under a blanket of snow which refused to remain ttationnry, except in sjiots, for more than twenty minutes at a time. A shrieking forty-mile an hour gnle blew "the beau tiful" from sky to earth, half way back again, and in more directions than the average compass bin' ixrints. And when the kqow did settle down it settled for keeps settled into drifts as solid aa lr packed by strong-armed laborers. Trans portation companies waged the same old battle for supremacy. Down-town they managed to keep things moving, but in the suburbs it was another story. All schedules and time tables were lost as eftectually as the rights of way. and ears only jogged along at irregular intervals by grace of the snow-plows and through the efforts of front four to six horses. Electric lines suffered principally through the coating of the trolley wires with ice. Hardly a passenger train reached its de pot on time and the delay ranged from one to five hours. Outgoing trains got away, but all ran slowly. Communication with the West wa.s badly broken, hut enough was learned Saturday morning to tell that the West had experienced the worst blizzard known for years. When the Chicora went out of St. Joseph oil its last trip there was a dug aboard. Sunday the dog wa.s talevi inio Benton Harbor alive. Tuesday night the dog was heard whining at the door of Solon Culler, who conducts the read hous at Pottowatamie Park. It is a snuiT-coloreil skye terrier. It was cov ered with ice. Cutler took compassion on the little animal and thawed the ice off it and rubbed it with va-eline. think ing its hide had been frozen by I he ice. Mr. Cutbr connected the vi-it of the strange dog which had evidently just come out oi the cold water with the loss of the Chicora., and took it to the city. The dog was immediately recog nized by the stevedores; who work on the (Italian) docks and by the crew of th; Petokey as the animal that was aboard the Chicora when it left. The dog has been a tramp pas.-enger on the draham & Morion Transpi etat ion Company's boat for several months. It has been divid ing its time between the Chicora and the Petoskey this winter. Since the log be came a passenger on these boats it has never missed, a trip, taking the first boat to leave. The return of the animal indi cates the Chicora was within a half-mile of the cast shore Tuesday evening, the second, night out. The dog. is believed, could not swim more than one-quart' r mile. The place where the dog came ashore, Pol towatamie Park, is eight miles north of Benton Harbor, a lakeside summer resort. Many are Inclined to think the vessel must have sunk i.ol far from that point. SOUTHERN. The international folk-lore congress met at Memphis. All the papers were read by women.

Va.. by the announcement that prisoners sent to jail tin re to serve out sentences for 'nioonshining" are giv en excellent accommodations in the way of jobs outside the prison and the dovern ment is obliged to pay the jailer for keep ing them. A United States official is in vestigating the matter. A bold robbery of the railway and ex press otlice at Sugarland, Texas, has roused the town. A band of masked men rode to the otiice and demanded of Agent .Adams the safe's contents. After a se vere beating Adams opened the safe and the robbers took S LÖ00 in cash. A num ber of citizens undertook to intercept the robbers. A sharp battle took place, but the highwaymen escaped to the Brazos swamps. A poss started in purst: it, and returned with four men under arrest Crane. Thompson, Denton and Flowers. The posse is still scouring the country for others. VVASHinGTOIL The Secretary of the Treasury has au tbciied the sale of gold bars for export on payment of a premium of 's of 1 per cent, to cover the cost of manufacture and transportation, and Friday morning 1 ,(0itMK was taken on these terms. There was alo withdrawn $i,SlXMH) in coin and JjSM).m' additional was engag ed for ixport Saturday, making the total ,s.".i;(u).K)). This leaves the gold reserve JsoS.trj-l.-PJS and the amount of gold coin on hand, above th amount of outstand ing gold certificate;., J 10.01 LV2.N).

It is deemed amply sufiieient that there is enough gold in either coin or bars to meet the demand on gold certificates. While tlte situation is regarded as a very trying one, there is no thought of Any thing so serious a.s to involve the credit of the government. An order received at Vallejo, Cal.. from the Department at, Washington has put the naval ollieers and men. and all others to whom the news has been made known, in pleasurable excitement, and their ac tivity is as great as if u declaration of war had come to their knowledge. The order is for the immediate preparation of the cruisers Banger and Alert for n sea voyage. The same order extends to the cruiser Boston. The work of coaling and provisioning th? warships is being pushed as rapidly ns possible, ami the equipments put into perfect condition and with the utmost care. It is thought that the des tination of the vessels is Honolulu. The reason for the belief is the report thit (rent Britain is determined to make an imposing show of naval strength in Ha waiian waters consequent upon the ar rest of certain British subjects caught reibhandiil in the recent revolt against the republic of Hawaii. The -United States, it is thought, does not, under the circumstances, care to have the warship Philadelphia, already on the way, tho only representative of the American navy present when Fngland's licet of gun boats drops anchor in the harbor of Hono lulu. POLITICAL, l'esubntission was carried in the South Dakota Senate by a vote of 1I(S to 11). It had previously passed the house.

The Paris correspondent of the London Times mites the extreme danger of the it;. id increase of radical power in the Fiench Parliament. During seven months the radicals have gained a hun dred votes, and now need only eighty live to command a majority in the Senate anil twenty-three to command a majority in the Chamber of Deputies. Such a majority would mean a collection of revo lutionary measures, such as the abolition of the Semite and the Presidency, an in quisitorial income tax, and a confiscating separation of church and state which would be fatal to any country, especially when taken in connection with a licen tious press and the so-called democrat ized, which means insubordinate, army.
