Powerful Remedies Applied to Prevent Kis Heart From Ceasing to Beat. The President Sends Sympa thy and a Basket of Flow- g ers to Mrs. Sheridan, A Late Bulletin Reports the Sufferer Conscious and Rational. /Washington, May 27.- -Gen. Sheri dan's condition is much worse than it was last night. lie appears to be grad ually sinking, and almost all hope has been abandoned. His strength is grad ually failing, and while there has been no recurrence of the heart failure, there is a tendency in that direction, and his pulse has been growing weaker and his breathing more labored. The blood is thick and black. Ever | since the attack last night the | physicians have been doing everything in their power to stimulate the action of the heart, but without success, and its beating is feeble and uncertain de spite the administration of digitalis and other powerful remedies. His strength has gradually failed during the day and the hope that he would be able to rally has proved illusive. Gen. Sheridan rested well during the early -part of the evening. He had some trouble in breathing during the night, but he im proved early in the day. He rested easily and was perfectly CONSCIOUS AND RATIONAL, recognizing those around him. Pepton ized milk and chicken broth were given him. and he took the latter with a relish. His appetite was good, and he re tained all the food he took. The nourishment, however, did not seem to give him any strength, and he grew weaker and weaker. His interest in passing events did not seem so keen as on the previous day, and he read no newspapers as formerly, not seeming to care for them. A few intimate friends were admitted to his room, and to these he listened with attention. His respira tion grew worse as the day wore on, and the lungs failed to properly purify the blood. Digitalis failed to liave much effect on him, and about 2 o'clock it was found necessary to give him oxygen in order to prevent the blood from becoming poisoned. This gas gave him considera ble relief and he rested easy. From 2 until 5 o'clock he slept for quite a while, and since that time he has been dozing at frequent intervals. Bromide or potassium mixed with chloral has been given to induce sleep. Two phy sicians remained CONSTANTLY AT his side to give immediate attention in case of need, and all of the doctors attending the sick general were frequently there together. He did not leave his bed dur ing the day.but remained there propped up with pillows. About 6 o'clock he de sired to be lifted up higher and two at tendants, assisted by Mrs. Sheridan, endeavored to raise him. lie was so heavy that they had some difficulty, and the general, noticing this, said jokingly: "1 am pretty heavy, but 1 haven't got any paralysis," referring to a news paper statement giving that as his malady. The oedema of the lower limbs which has been mentioned is a dropsical swelling and is due to an imperfect circulation of the blood. Gen. Sheridan fully recognizes that his end may come at any time, and it is said has made all arrangements he desired to have perfected prior to his demise. One of the physicians in attendance on Gen. Sheridan said this evening; "Gen. Sheridan has great vitality, but I do not think he will be alive thirty hours from now, and certainly not in two days, un less there is a great change. He has no pain and I think 111', WILL SINK AWAY easily. A recurrence of the heart trouble may come, the heart will cease to beat and all will be at an end." At the general's house all is quiet, and conversation is carried on in subdued whispers, so as not to dis turb him in the least should he be able to sleep. There was a steady stream of callers at the resi dence during the day and many tele grams were received asking for infor mation as to his condition. The callers included many persons well known in Washington life, and a considerable number of them were ladies. The president sent a basket of flowers and a note of sympathy to Mrs. Sheridan in the morning. He asked to be informed of the general's condition and expressed a sincere hope that his life would be spared. Gen. Sher idan has always been a great favorite With the president, who admired his frank, open manner of expressing his opinions upon current topics and his peculiarly pleasing way of emphasizing the statements by little anecdotes. The general appeared to gradually grow weaker as night fell, and this change was noted in THE DOCTOBS' TJLLETIX, which was pre pared at 8 o'clock, and issued later. It reads as follows :| 8 p. in.— repeated attacks of partial failure of the heart and lit con tinued feeble action have induced a condition of the lungs which prevents the proper aera tion of the blood. This condition has hith erto been measurably controlled, but shows Bach a tendency to recurrence as to justify the most serious apprehensions. It is criti cal. He is free from pain and distress and so expresses himselx. M. O'Reilly, Ciias. I J. Byiine, A. C. Yakrow, W. Matthews. Two hours later another bulletin was Issued. It simply said: No change for the better has taken place in Gen. Sheridan's condition. LATE BCLLETIXS. Washington, May 'JS, 1. m. — At this hour It is reported " that there is no change in Gen. Sheridan's condition. He is holding his own and is con scious and rational at all times, except im mediately after inhaling oxygen, when he becomes somewhat flighty, The doctors say It is improbable that any change will occur tor several hours. Washington,- May 28, 1:45 a. m.— Gen. Sheridan is sleeping quietly, and no imme diate danger is apprehended. The only per sons in his room are a physician and a nurse. The other doctors are lying down, and Mrs. Sheridan has also been persuaded to take a short rest. The general has had one or two ■light attacks jL coughing. IN" HANCOCK'S MEMORY. Memorial Services at the Tomb of the Departed General. Norristown, Pa., May 27— Memorial services were held over the tomb of Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock in Mont gomery cemetery to-day.

About 5,000 persons were in attendance at the cemetry. -_*» OBITUARY. Washington, May 27.— Rev. Samue 11.

D., accented the permanent pastorate, of Plymouth church to-day. At the close of the morning sermon he said that when he took the temporary pastorate he had no idea that he would be called to remain permanently. The nearly unanimous action of the church Friday night had determined him to accept a position which he, as well as all others, knew he was not completely fitted for. So far from being surprised that there had been some opposition to him, he was surprised that so many should favor him. He felt that his well-known de votion to the 'church and his close friendship with Mr. Beecher were all that qualified him for the position, and they alone influenced him in accepting the call. -_B_ "Want Dives Closed.

The Secretary Explains Why the New York Sugar Clas sifiers Were Removed. North Dakota, Pensions and the Fisheries the Pro gramme in the Senate. The House Will Resume Con sideration of the Tariff Wednesday. Washington, May 27.— The secretary of the treasury to-day expressed himself freely (for publication) in regard to the removals which have been made in the New York City appraiser's department in consequence of alleged frauds in the classification of sugars, and particularly as to the testimony as far as developed before the Hale senate committee upon that subject. Mr. Fairchild said that this matter had been under investiga tion for nearly two years; that the investigation was originally begun by the late Secretary Manning, who some time in the fall of» 1886 called it to his attention, and that since Mr. Manning's retirement from the department the whole subject has been personally known to him (Mr. Fairchild) in all of its details; that nothing had been done about it by Judire Maynard except by the direction and with the previous knowledge and approval of Secretary Fairchild; that Judge Maynard knew nothing of the matter until some time after he became assistant secretary, which was in April, 1887; that all of the removals which had been made because of the alleged sugar frauds were made by Mr. Fairchild's express direction and solely with a view to the purification and improvement of the public service, and with no regard whatever to any personal or political consideration; that the same was true of the non-removals and the restoration after removal men tioned in said investigation; that he (Mr. Fairchild) was himself personally responsible for the same; that it was grossly unjust to censure Judge May nard, but that if there was occasion for censure it should be directed against Mr. Fairchild himself. "Of one thing," he added, "1 am sure, and that is that the government has in its service no better, more conscientious man, and none more faithful and devoted to the public interests than Judge Maynard." Mr. Fairchild further said that the question of civil service reform, as such reform had heretofore been understood, was not at all involved that if what had been done by the department in this matter was in violation of the principles of civil service reform, then this reform would itself be a greater evil than were the evils which it was designated to remedy; that the judgment and action of the responsible head of a department could not be hampered in the. way indi cated without serious danger to the in tegrity and efficiency of the public service, and that, if it was to be so hampered, whether by law or otherwise, then no self-respecting man could afford to take charge of any department. Mr. Fairchild further said that the mat ter of the investigation of alleged sugar frauds was by no means at an end, and, although the efforts of the department to learn the truth and to correct what he feared to be gross irregularities and wrongs of long standing, might and probably would be seriouly impeded by the press to which certain men of fair repute in the community suffered them selves to be put: yet he had hope and confidence that in due time such efforts would be successful. PROMISES TO BE LIVELY. The Senate to Take Up Pensions, North Dakota and the Fisheries — The House to Tackle the Mills Bill Again. Special to the Globe. Washington, May Congress will present a variety of business this week, and its proceedings will undoubtedly be full of vigor. The senate intends to consider pension bills, the North Da kota and other territorial statehood bills and the fisheries treaty. The Repub licans believe that they will succeed in securing open sessions for the debate on the fisheries treaty, but it is likely that the resolution which will be adopted making this provision will de spoil the party of its victory by a pro vision that upon objection of two sena tors at any time when secret matters are to be spoken the doors maybe closed. The house will to-morrow continue consideration of the legislative, execu tive and judicial appropriation bill, and will likely complete it by Tuesday evening. When this bill is out of the way the debate on the Mills tariff bill will be resumed under the five-minute rule, and will probably hold the floor without interruption until the end of the week. Democratic members say they ask to have the tariff bill set aside during next week so as to permit as many of their members as wish to at tend the Democratic national conven tion at St. Louis. If this is done, next week will be occupied with appropria tion bills. These bills are FURTHER BEHIND now than for many years at this period of the session. At this time in the first session of the last congress, nine appro priation bills had passed the house. Now but six' have passed that body. Three had passed the senate, while tins year but two have been disposed of. Only two regular appropriation bills have passed both houses during this congress— the pension and military academy. The diplomatic. District of Columbia, Indian and river and harbor and postofiice appropriation bills have passed the house and have gone to the senate, while the legislative, ex ecutive and judicial and general appro priation bills are now pending in the house. The following appropriation bills have not yet been reported to the house; Sundry, civil, fortifications, army, navy, agricultural and general deficit To-morrow night the Dem ocratic members of the house will hold another caucus to further consider the amendments which have been offered to the tariff bill. Congressman Mills does not hesitate to discuss the pros pects of his tariff bill and, indeed, rather enjoys the subject. He says the bill will surely pass the house, and that members who have been spoken of as doubtful have assured him of their support, He expects that amendments will be accepted, but says he is at liberty to state that there will be no de parture from the general principles of the bill. May Go to 'Frisco. Washington, May 27.— Bishop-Elect John P. Newman will leave here to morrow lor New York, where he will SAINT PAUL, MINN. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 28, 1888. be consecrated on Tuesday.

Washington, May 27.— 1t is again rumored that Secretary Bayard contem plates retiring from the cabinet to as sume the leadership of the minority in the senate. The rumor, however, ap pears to have no substantial foundation and is surely premature, if not entirely erroneous; at least, such is tbe informa tion obtained from a very reliable source. Invited to Kentucky. Special to the Globe. Washington, May 27.— The Ken tucky congressional delegation, headed by Senator Blackburn, accompanied by ex-Gov. J. Proctor Knott, Col. Blanton Duncan and other distinguished Ken tuckians, will call upon President Cleveland to-morrow morning and in vite him to visit Kentucky in the early fall. mm ATTACKED THE BISHOP. A Lively Meeting in Limerick Protests Against the Papal Re script and " Roasts " Bishop O'Dwyer. London, May 27. — The National league meeting, held in Limerick to-day to protest against the papal rescript, was an enormous affair. Special trains were run to carry people in from out lying points, and their capacity was taxed to the utmost. Mr. William O'Brien, the principal orator, made a scathing attack upon Bishop O'Dwyer, of Limerick, for having written the mayor, warning Catholics against at tending the meeting under the pain of committing a grievous sin, and vir tually accused the bishop of construct ive mood. A copy of the obnoxious letter, Mr. O'Brien declares, was sent by Bishop O'Dwyer to every Orange man newspaper in the kingdom, while a copy was not sent to the mayor of Limerick, to whom it was addressed. The remarks of Mr. O'Brien elicited repeated cheers for himself and other home rule leaders, and as often brought gourth a rumbling chorus of groans for Bishop O'Dwyer. The bishop left Limerick last evening, manifestly not caring to remain in the city during the storm he must have known his letter woald create. A large number of meetings were held throughout Ireland to.lay. The were uniformly orderly and peaceful and singularly free jom government interference. THE POPE MUST HE OHEYED. London, May 28.— The Rome corre spondent of the Times says: "The final audience with the pope convinced Arch bishop Walsh that the rescript must be obeyed, but that the Vatican would not make the compliance needlessly diffi cult. The archbishop expressed his in tention to endeavor to stop meetings and to insure submission." Rome, May 27. — Archblsnop Walsh has received instructions to publish in the Dublin Freeman a letter which will rectify the erroneous views that have found expression with regard to the papal rescript. ■<_»" _. THE EIGHTH JUDICIAL. Numerous Democrats Who Are Willing to Wear the Ermine. Special to the Globe. Shakopee, May 27.— interesting political subject here is the judgeship. The Eighth judicial district is over whelmingly Democratic, and when two years ago Gov. Hubbard appointed a Republican (James C. Edson) to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Judge J. L. . lac Donald, it was looked upon by the Democrats, to say the least, as a partisan appointment. Judge Ed son is a perfect gentleman, yet the Democrats felt that the governor would have been more consistent to the princi ple of "non-political office" if he had chosen his appointee out of the tariff reform party, particularly so when a number of able men could be found therein. For these reasons the Democrats of this district will make a party nomination this fall, and their candidates are: Francis Cad well, of Le Sueur; William C. Odell, Chaska; Eli Southworth and H. J. Peck, of Shakopee. All four of these gentlemen are lawyers of prominence, and each well known throughout the district. The situation at present is as follows: Le Sueur county is solid for Cadwell, Carver county is solid for Odell. McLeod, Sibley and Scott have not held their conventions. The con test will be in McLeod and Sibley coun ties, - as those counties have no candi date on the Democratic side. On the Republican side the only candidate spoken of is the present incumbent, Judge James C. Edson. _>' HER LOVER DIED. Why Miss Mary Geiser Swallowed a Bottle of Laudanum. Special to the Globe. Frederick, Md., May Mary, the twenty-one-year-old daughter of An thony Geiser, a saloonkeeper of this city, died to-day from the effects of laud anum taken with suicidal intent.

Her marriage with Cicero Danner was appointed for yesterday, but the young man died a month ago in Lexington, Ky., and Miss Geiser had been pining ever since. — : -«_**- A Feeling of Lassitude.

RED MEN_WANT GORE Indians at Pine Ridge Said to Be Sharpening- Scalping Knives. Militia Ordered to Be Ready to Move at a Moment's Notice. Old Patents Affecting Land in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls Unearthed. A Well Known Professor Dy ing—A Large Warehouse Bursts. Special to the Globe. Bismarck, Dak., May 27.— The In dian scare at Pine Ridge agency has caused much excitement, especially among members of the militia, who have expected to be called out. Fri day Gov. Church received word by wire that there was great danger of an out break near Oelrich's, and that people were leaving the ranches. The war de partment was immediately warned by the governor, and the fact that citizens were calling for trooops was made known to the authorities at Washington. The governor also di rected Col. *W. J. Thornby, of the ter ritorial militia, to proceed to Oelrich's and report to Adjt. Gen. Jenkins to have two companies of militia ready to move at a moment's notice. The adju tant general reports that the men are ready to move and that the First regi ment has been notified to make all necessary preparations for action. The only report received from Col. Thornby is to the effect that. the scare was started Friday by reports brought in by friendly Indians to the effect that they were going on theawar path. The colonel's telegram is signed by a num ber of citizens, and calls for two com panies of militia and arms for citizens. He states that it was rumored yesterday that the Indians were encamped eight miles from town; that all women and children had left, and that the town was wild with excitement. No reports have been received from Oelrich's to-day. Gen. Vilas, of the de partment of the interior, telegraphs Gov. Church that all is quiet at Pine Ridge agency, which is about twenty miles from Oelrich's. It begins to look as though the matter is simply a scare similar to that of the famous "Turtle mountain scare of 1887," but it still ears its serious mask and the authori ties have prepared for the worst. I- y'' Looks Ugly at Pine Ridge. Special to the Globe. Mitchell, Dak., May 27.— Capt. H. S. Sevey, commander of Company I, Dakota national guard, received orders to-day from the adjutant general to have his command in readiness at any time to go to Pine Ridge agency to help to suppress a contemplated outbreak among the Indians in that section. VALUABLE PATENTS FOUND. . A Cloud on the Title to Ean Claire and Chippewa Falls Real Estate Raised. Special to the Globe. Eu Claire, Wis., May 27.— Register Horan, of the United States land office, as a result of investagation in the St. Croix and La Crosse land office, has un earthed over a thousand old patents, which had been missing over thirty years. The Eau Claire land district, until 1854, formed a portion of the St. Croix falls, and of the district of La Crosse. At that time this district was formed, and a new land office opened here. The proofs made here of entries which antedated 1854, were sent to Washington and patents issued, but when the patents were sent from Wash ington, they were addressed, it is now discovered, to the land office where the entries were recorded, St. Croix Falls and La Crosse. Parties applied here in hundreds of instances for their patents, but the war excitement came on and the matter was forgotten for years. Meantime • endless transfers have been made of these lands, to which the thousand or two original entrymen had received patents, and to which the titles have consequently always been prima facie vitally defective. A por tion of the old patents cover nearly all the site ot Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls. The discovery completes the chain of title in all these cases. The old patents, yellow and musty, are being forwarded to the laud office here, and wilMbe placed on record. They are all signed by President Buchanan, and bear date from 1851 to 18? Promptly Discharged. Special to the Globe. _, Chatfield, Minn., May 27.—Consid erable excitement was caused on our streets Thursday by the arrival of the sheriff with a warrant for the arrest of Dr. J. C.

Zumbrota, Minn., May 27.—Sylves ter Dickey was born in the town of Augusta, Oneida county, New York, January, 1807. His parents were natives ot Tremont. When he was five years old he moved with his parents to Spring field, N. V., where he spent his younger days and lived until 1859. In these days he had charge of locks on the Erie canal. In 1843 he was married to Miss Harriet Alexander. In IS_9 he and his wife, with eight children, moved to Minnesota and located on a farm in the southern part of the county, where he lived for many years and reared his large family of sons and daughters, who have since all married and raised fami lies, and are all living and in good health. Four of his sons went through the hardships of the late war and served their country long and faithfully. In 1864 Mr. Dickey was elected county commissioner in Goodhue county, and in the fall of 1805 was elected as repre sentative of the legislature from his district by the Republicans, and has held some responsible position of trust ever since. His business capacity is seemingly as good as ever. He is hale and hearty, and is likely good for twenty-five years yet. For several years past he and wife have lived in the village of Pine Island a quiet and re tired life. Mrs. Dickey, who is but a few years younger than her husband, still enjoys the best of health, with all of her faculties, and many a villager has had occasion to call her blessed, as she is ever ready to be present at the bedside of the sick and do a neighbor a good turn. Mr. and Mrs. Dickey cele brated their golden wedding Feb. 5, 1t.84. This good old couple cling to the spiritualistic faith, and while they are yet happy and healthy and in the best of spirits in this world, they look for ward with pleasure to the time when they shall cease their earthly career to visit the land of their eternal home.

A Rolling Mass of Black Cloud Revolving Like a Cart Wheel. Electric Storms, High Winds, Small Cyclones and For est Fires. Special to the Globe. Ciiadkon, Neb., May 27.— A water spout broke in northwestern Dawes county last night 6 o'clock. Five miles of track is submerged on the Elkhorn, Missouri Valley & Fremont railroad and a number of bridges washed out. There has been, no train from the north or west for twenty-four hours, and it is hard to say when there will be one. It has rained hard since 4 o'clock last night without stopping and the country is flooded. Farmers all along the White and Lone Tree rivers have had to abandon their houses, and a number have been washed away. White river rose sixteen feet in forty minutes. The water came down almost in a solid wall. It is impossible to cross White river, as all the highway bridges are washed out, and it is feared great damage has been done further northwest, as the waterspout came from the northwest. One man, a farmer named A. J. Sweet, lost SIXTEEN HEAD OF CATTLE. and five head of horses, the water com ing in such a wall that it carried the live stock down with it. Mr. Sweet came across the river in a boat, and reports that terrible damage has been done to other farms, both in loss of live stock and crops. The rivers are still rising, and it is raining hard. No loss of life has as yet been reported, but it is feared that after a full report can be obtained there will be. The cloud was plainly visible from here, . and it had the ap pearance of a rolling mass of black -cloud, revolving like a cart wheel, entirely different from a cy clone cloud. A man by the name of Anderson was in the extreme southern limit of the spout, and he reports the water coming in a solid wall ten feet deep, carrying everything possible be fore it. Anderson barely escaped with his life. This section is noted for water spouts. The last one came three years years ago and carried the entire rail road camp away which was then build ing the Elkhorn, Missouri Valley & Fremont railroad. Curious Pranks of Electricity.

Pine Island, Minn., May 27.—Will iam Bickford, the subject of this sketch, was born at Wolfboro, N. H., on Nov. 30, 1708, consequently he will be ninety years old should he live until the last of next November. His childhood days were spent about the same as children generally spend their time. When he was twenty he secured a position in a tannery, but in 1818 he went to Gard ner, Me., where on Jan. 23, 1820, he was married to Miss Solome Bayles. This union was blessed with one child, a son, who died in our late war. From here he moved to Nobleboro, Me., a ship building city at that time. At Noble boro he lived.until 1826, when he moved across the Driver to New Castle. In 1536 he again emigrated, going to Auburn, Me., where 'he re sided until IS.S, when he came- est and settled at Zumbrota, this county. He and his wife were now getting rather aged, and their prime object in coming West was to spend their declin ing years with their only son, who pre ceded them to this then new and wild region. At the death of their son a few years later they were again obliged to live alone. On the 23d of January, 1870, they celebrated their golden wedding, at which a large number were present. In October of the same year he was again married to Mrs. Frances Lord, who still keeps him company down the stream of time. They have one child, a bright, interesting young lady of six teen, and she is a great comfort to the old gentleman and his wife. In July, 1573, he moved to Pine Island, where ho has lived over since, and where he will spend the remainder of his days. Of one more thing than another, the old gentleman is proud of his Masonic record. He joined in 1824 and was an active member. At the revival of Ma sonry in 1547 he took au active part and did much for the cause. He had taken nine degrees, and is said to be remark ably well posted in them all. He has had a wonderful memory, thus making it possible for him to remember much that ordinary men would forget, Ho organized the Zumbrota lodge and others. He is still quite active, a brill iant talker for a man of his age, is a strong Democrat and has voted at every presidential election since the year be fore he was twenty-one. -_£9_ CONDITION OP CROPS. Insects Doing Considerable Dam* age in Illinois — Meadows Buck ward in Minnesota. Chicago, May 27.— The Farmers' Re view this week will print the following crop summary: The improvement in the condition of the winter wheat crop due to the recent rains is now being noted by many of our correspondents, but at the same time reports of injury from insects are quite numerous, and nearly, if not fully, offset improvement from the rains. In Illinois the wheat crop is improved in condition in Cass county, hut insects have done serious damage in Christian, Clark, Crawford, "Wabash and Wayne ceunties. The con dition of meadows and pastures in this state, according to our reports this week, is only-fair, and- cutworms anil army worms are plentiful in some local ities. Fruit prospects are very (air, but the season is somewhat backward. In sects are doing little damage in In diana, the only report of injury being from Vanderburgh county. Fruit prospects are fair. In Wisconsin the winter wheat crop in good condi tion, although slightly late. This is also true of the pastures and meadows.. Fruit prospects are good. No improve ment is noticeable in the condition of the winter wheat in Michigan; mead ows and pastures are late, but improved in condition; fruit prospects good, es pecially for apples. In St. Joseph county, however, they are poor from numerous hard frosts, while in Wayne county the prospect is poor for peaches. Crops are in fair condition in Missouri except where insects are working, as in Barry, Hickory. New Madrid, Pettis, Warren and Webster counties. The prospect for peaches is poor. Little change can be noted in the condition of the crops in Ohio, with the exception of fruit, which is improved. The season is backward in lowa, but good progress is now being made. Meadows and past ures are in good condition. Fruit pros pects arc fair. Little injury from in sects is reported. Meadows and past ures are very backward in Minnesota, the season being exceptionally cold and wet. Crops are late, but in good condi tion in Nebraska. . _e>- STOCKHOLDERS SWINDLED. A Big Suit Against the Nevada Bank, Mackay, Flood and Jones. San Francisco, May 27.— John Nel son has filed a suit against the Nevada bank, John W. Mackay, James C. Flood, J. P. Jones, Comstock Mill & Mining company, and the Consolidated Califor nia & Virginia Mining company et al. Nelson alleges that Mackay, Flood and Jones, who own a controlling interest in the Consolidated Virginia, had the ore from that company's mines crushed at the mills of the Com stock Mining company, which they also own. On this ore they charged from ?2 to S3 per ton more for milling than other mill companies could have charged, therefore defrauding the stock holders out of fully $800,000. In addi tion to this the defendants, as directors of the Nevada bank, charged commis sions for the sale of the bullion, whereby they again swindled the stockholders out of SSO.OOO. Complainants ask that that the defendants be compelled to account for these sums; and that all contracts between the Consolidated Virginia and the Comstock company, and between those companies and the Novada bank be declared void.
