The General Very Low and
Not Expected to Live
Many Hours.
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
/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
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
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
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
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.
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.
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 200
representatives of W. S. Hancock Post
40, Gen. Hancock association, Admiral
Dupont Post No. 74, Reynolds Post No.
71, Town Post No. 73, Gen. Robert Pat
tison No. 275 and GrablePost Mo. 10, all
of Philadelphia, came up under the
command of Col. Charles E. Tomton.
and were met by a delegation of
Jefferson club, of this place.
The precession, # headed by the
West Philadelphia band, moved
out to the cemetery, where
Maxwell Stephenson, the orator of the
day, delivered a half-hour speech, in
which he denounced the interference
of Grand Army posts with politics.
He rebuked political leaders who would
cast venom at the departed defenders of
the Union. The speaker was fre
quently applauded in making such
references. A design of straw flowers
representing a knapsack, with the tri
colors on cither side, Inscribed on the
back, "Hancock Association," "our
comrade, Gen. W, S. Hancock," was
placed within the tomb. About 5,000

Slifer, formerly state treasurer, died
to-day from injuries received from being

Louisville, Ky., May 27.— Capt. An
drew Lindsay, of the steamer Granite
State, Memphis and Cincinnati line,
dropped dead here to-night. He had
landed a short while before and was
coming up into the city for a few min
utes on business when he was seized
with apoplexy and fell to the ground.
Before medical assistance could arrive
he was dead. He was a resident of
Peoria, 111., and had been twenty-five
years in the employ of the company
owning the Granite State. His body
was sent to his brother-in-law, Capt.
Wise, of Cincinnati, who will arrange
for the funeral.
Abbott in Beecher's Shoes.
Brooklyn, N. V., May 27.— Rev
Lyman Abbott, D. 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.
"Want Dives Closed.
Baltimore, May During the
past week the News has been making
an onslaught on the dives that infest
that portion of Baltimore street lying
between Harrison street and Central

and others. Resolutions were adopted
demanding that the mayor revoke the
licenses of all these low concert halls
and other dives in accordance with his

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
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.
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
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.

A Lively Meeting in Limerick
Protests Against the Papal Re
script and " Roasts " Bishop
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.
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

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.

Old Patents Affecting Land in
Eau Claire and Chippewa
Falls Unearthed.
A Well Known Professor Dy
ing—A Large Warehouse
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.

A Cloud on the Title to Ean Claire
and Chippewa Falls Real Estate
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?

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.

Houses Washed Away, Stock
Drowned and Railways
A Rolling Mass of Black Cloud
Revolving Like a Cart
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
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.

grist mill, unroofing the town hall, a
grain elevator, Cout -tright & Co.'s dry
goods store and Shocks & Peffer's

Lived Ninety Years and Voted for
Every Democrat for President.
Special to the Globe.
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.
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. .
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.
