The bicycle ordinance which has been in fhe hands of the committee on streets of the a-dermen for the past two mouths will be presented to that body tonight for action.

WHEEL. Jones Matched for a Race Against Plying Jib. SAN FRANCISCO, April 19.— Alta E. Jones, the cyclist who made some sensational rides during the indoor tournament in this city recently, is to be matched for a mile against Flying Jib, the great pacer. The race will be held on the stock farm track at Pteasant j on on Saturday next, and has created Un usual interest among (iie horsemen. Jones has been training carefully at Livermore during the past fortnight, and Is in the beat pos sible condition. He has reduced his weight eight pounds below that at which he rode in the pavilion, and is endeavoring to get down to 150 pounds stripped. His mentor, Richard P. Aylward, looks to Jones to make a remark able record on the path this season. He hopes to meet the cracks of the national rir fuit in the East late in the season at the important meets, and with the ordinary for tune in the matter of accidents, expects to be able to make a creditable showing. He Is considered by many the fastest sprinter in the country. His beat performance recently was his victory in the quarter -mile race at Mechanics' pavilion. He reduced the world's indoor record to 31 2-5 seconds, which, with a standing start, is very close to the time made on an outdoor track. In this race Jones rode completely around Orlando Stev ens, who is himself a crack quarter-miler. In his match with Flying Jib Jones will probably be allowed tandem pacing. Which is customary In races of this character. TBWESSEE DEiRBY. Bnekvidere the Winner of the Mrm puit* Event. MEMPHIS.

BUT ONE POINT AT ISSUE THE JUSTIFICATION OF THE LOW ER COURT NOT TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION. CLAIMS OF SETTLERS MELD VALID. A Favorable Finding; Involving Lands Occupied Within tbe Origi nal Northern Pacific Grant. WASHINGTON, April 19.— The su preme court, in an opinion delivered by Justice Brown, today affirmed the decision of the circuit court of appeals for the sixth circuit, in the case of the petition of James Lennon for a writ of habeas corpus. Lennon was a loco motive engineer on the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railroad and, as such, refused to haul the cars of the Toledo, Ann Arbor & North Michigan railroad, in disobedience of an order of the circuit court for the Northern district of Ohio, because the engineers of the Ann Arbor road were on a strike and those of the other line were in sympathy with them. Lennon was arrested and a fine of $50 imposed. This occurred in the circuit court for the Northern district of Ohio. He im mediately filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, which was succes sively denied by the courts below, and their action was sustained by the su preme court today. The case origi nated in 1893 and attracted wide at tention. Justice Brown, in rendering the opin ion, said that the only question raised in the case is whether the circuit court exceeded its jurisdiction in holding Lennon for contempt, the supreme court not being at liberty to consider the testimony or to inquire whether the facts justified the action. He said that the faot that Lennon was not a party to the original suit for an in junction was immaterial, so long as it was made to appear that he had notice of the issuing of an injunction by vhe court, which, it appeared from the tes timony, he had. No attempt was made to interfere with Lennon's contract with his own company or to compel a continuance of his services. It was not necessary to decide whether an engi neer may suddenly, without notice, quit the service of a railroad company between stations, though cases might be imagined where a sudden abandon ment of a train load of passengers in an unfrequented spot might imperil their safety and even their lives. On the question of the injunction, the court says it was proper, as it bore solely upon the relations of the rail way companies to each other. It was a question for the court t>elow to de termine whether Lennon's action in delaying the train five hours at a way station was taken in pursuance of a determination to abandon the service of the company or for the purpose of disobeying the court's injunction. The finding of the trial court was against him on that point,, and the supreme court held that there was no error in this judgment. Justice Harlan handed down the opinion of the court in the case of the Northern Pacific against Junius G. Sanders and others, involving the val idity of claims to land made by set tlers under the land laws, within the limits of the Northern Pacific grant, subsequent to the government circular of 1872 withdrawing the land and prior to the definite location of the line of the road. The decision was favorable to the claims of settlers, that claims made under such conditions are valid. In the case of Charles W. Nordstrum, under sentence of death in Washing ton state, the court granted a stay of proceedings to await the decision of Nordstrum's appeal to this court from a decision below refusing him a writ of habeas corpus. HI nOKKiI) HVI X AVAR. Western Linen l,ooWiii« Forward to General Demoralization. CHICAGO. April 19.— Rumors of coming de moralization in passenger rates flew around thick and fast today. They originated in the reported paying, by the Missouri Pacific and Union Pacific, of the same commissions to ticket brokers as are now being paid regularly appointed ticket agents. As the present rate of commission is four times that of normal, its payment to brokers would furnish them with a big margin on which to cut rates and widespread demoralization would Inevitably follow such payment. There is much talk of reductions In regular one-way rates to the same extent as the cuts made by the brokers. It Is feared, however, that the adoption of such tactics would result in an all round rate war. Passenger representatives of the Chicago roads held a meeting this afternoon for the purpose of revising the proposed new agree ment of the Western Passenger association. A few unimportant changes were suggested and the committee will meet tomorrow to engraft them in their draft, preparatory to the gen eral meeting of all the lines to be held here Wednesday. At the same meeting the subject of rates for the Christian Endeavor associa tion of San Francisco next July will be dis cussed. There is mut-h Impatience to have the matter settled, as it is feared demoraliza tion will result from leaving the matter open any longer. The Southern Pacific has been asked to state its position in the matter. The Denver & Rio Grande road gave notice to all its connections today that for the pres ent it intends to observe srtrlctly the law signed by Gov. Adams, of Colorado, Se*urday, prohibiting the roads charging for transpor tation of bicycles when accompanied by pas sengers. The Denver & Rio Grande will not check any bicycles through the state, but will deliver them unchecked to connections at Junction Dolnts. May first next the Baltimore & Ohio road will adopt the tonnage system for handling its freight trains. Its reason for doing so is the hope of theTeby bringing about a reduc tion in the cost of operation. The unit sys tem will be the basis of operating on the ton nage system; the unit of weight being five and one-half tons. This will make it easy i for trainmen tc figure on just how many tons they are handling and do away with the use of five cr six figures in additions. W. R. Busenbark. formerly traffic manager I of the Chicago Great Western road, and who refused the other day the position of general i passenger agent on the Baltimore & Ohio ! Southwestern, has accepted a position with : Connselman & Day. grain and stock brokers i of this city. He will represent them on the Chicago stock exchange. THE FORAKEA BILL. Light on "What It Proposes for Rail. roadit. The following statement is made in order to clear up misunderstandings that appear to exist in respect to the so-called Foraker bill, recently introduced in the senate: This bill proposed various amendments to I the inter-staxe commerce law. It is not pre | pared in view of the anti-trust decision in the I Trans-Mtssouri case. It was completed be fore that decision was made and would have been introduced if that decision had not been made. The only effect of the de cision is to make the necessity for Its enact ment more imperative. In its present form the bill represents the result of several years of discussion and negotiation, participated in by congressional committees, tha interstate commerce commis sion, organizations of business men and rep resentatives of railways. It embraces a variety of topics. It has twelve sections, only one of which touches the question o*-~-so-«a.lled pooling contracts. The other changes pro posed were chiefly such as have heretofore been Teeommended by the com-fr'ssion and th« amendment to the fifth section of the law is in the precise form which heretofore has not been objected to by the commission, and which has been quite generally assented to as expedient and saf« -ft prohibits pooling contracts In more carfttulnterms than those emp joyed in the origins* blaw; bnt provides conditions under which such contract* may be made, not to become ..effective If disap proved by the commission, itwenty days being allowed for preliminary? es&unination by the commission at any time ; fa&crates, charges and facilities under such contracts to be subject to the control of the commission at all times. The measure does not Vary essentially from what was known as tha/Patterson bill, which passed the house of representatives in the Fifty-third congress. i wi "•.■■■ii.' Anything for ' Pfckler. WASHINGTON, Aprib l&^-The Times today prints the following: Bx-Congressman Pick ler, who just missed the pension commission erehip, has made a call on Mr. Evans and ru mor has connected his visit with a series of changes leading up to -.the; head of the in terior department, commencing with the ac ceptance by Maj. Pickler 4f the position of first deputy commissioner* A minor office was generally thought beneath the dignity of Maj* Piekler, and the statement that he would even consider one comes as a surprise to those who know him. The reason given for this probable action on his part is that he would not be deputy commissioner long and hints at the resignation of Secretary Bliss Secretary Bliss did not want this position He declined the interior portfolio three times. It is said the relations between the president and Bliss are not the most cordial. It is now said that in the event of his resignation Evans will succeed him and that Pickler will come into Evans' Dlacc. Pepin on a Rampage. LAKE CITY, Minn., April 19.— As a result of the heavy gale Sunday and the conse quent wash on the shores here, considerable damage has been done. The wind steadily increased until the lake was as rough as it was ever seen. The Milwaukee track follows the lake its entire- length, and in the after noon the track watchman reported it unsafe. The wind continued to blow a gale until 9 o'clock, when it lulled a little, but by this time several pi aces- of railroadfrU were washed away and some of the track was in the Water: The wind tiien turn*d to the west and »gain increased in fury and finished the work of destruction'; taking th« damp- in places for a half-mile in a stretch. The storm, was the heaviest- ever known here with the water at so high a stage, and all efforts Jtp resist its force failed. The Burling ton tracks, on the other side of the lake were also badly damaged. ■ ■ R«*h of Settlors. DEVIL'S LAKE, X.

The majority of the filing^ are In Towner, Rolette and Bottineau cGHfaities, which contain large tracts of fine government lands near to towns and railroads.

ORTONVILLE DEPOT, Minn., April 19.— The embankment of the Milwaukee road across the Minnesota river valley In this city, which has been in great danger for the past three weeks, finally gave way Sunday.

There is comfort in the knowledge, that so many forms of sickness are not due to any actual dis ease, but simply to a constipated condi tion of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt* ly removes. That is why it is the onty remsdy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial affects are due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is therefore all important, in order to get its bene ficial effects, to note when you pur chase, that you have the genuine arti cle, which is manufactured by the Cal>* fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by all reputable druggists. j .. If in the enjoyment of good health, and the system is regular, laxatives or other remedies are then not needed. If afflicted with any actual disease, one may be commended to the most skillful physicians, but if in need of a laxative, one should hay f he best, and with the vvell-informed -erywhere, Syrup of F"igs stands his.

OUR NEW STORY We have pleasure in announcing that we have secured for publication in our columns, beginning- Sunday^ April 25, A Powerful New Story, — knti'tled — "THE QUEEN OF hearts; 1 BY Elizabeth Phipps Train Author of "A Social Highwayman," "Madam of the Ivies," ♦'.A Marital Liability," "The Auto biography of a Professional Beauty," etc., etc. The Author of our new story, Miss Elizabeth Phipps Train, has rapidly come to the front in the United States as a popular novelist. Her first story, "The Autobiography of a Professional Beauty," created a decided sensation, but "Madam of the Ivies" beat th« record. The intrinsic force and defiant viva* ciousness of Miss Train's stories have carried all before them. She possesses great original dramatic power in placing the characters of a story, grouping the incidents, portraying tho scenes, and developing the events. A lively charm lights one through the whole to the end. In "The Queen ol Hearts" the author has struck a new vein, and we shall be surprised if this story does not prove one of the most popular of the season. ?
