The receivership met with no resistance
on tbe part of tbe railroad companies and
an agreement was quickly reached. Tbe
Ma in both case, that of the Xante re
and "FiinTO," showed that the lines were
heavily I qtoIvoI with maturing obligations
coming on soon, and that tbe interest due

bills went elaborately into figures and were
very full and voluminous. The bonded in-

Although the press of the country
baa anticipated tbe result for aome
time past, not until the death of Chair
man George C Mugoun last week was
any immediate action contemplated.
Tbe first intimation ot decisive action
was received at 3 o'clock Saturday aft
ernoon when a special sleeper, the
Catoosa, with bapgncro var attached,
which left St Louis at 8 o'clock in the
morning, arrived over the Iron Moon-:
tain with promiueut railway attorney
and officials on board, who hastened at
once to the federal courthouse and
were soon closeted with Judge Cald
well, who had arrived from Sk Lsuis
the night before.

They remained closeted behind closed
doors with Judge Caldwell until 6:30
o'clock, when an order wa agreed
upon appointing three receivers for
tbe Santa Fe system: J. W. lie in
hard t, president of the Santa Fe
system; J. J. McCoolc, general
counsel of the Santa Fe system, and
Joseph C Wilson, cleric of the
L'nitod States diatr.ct court at Topeka,
Kan., the latter being a compromise
receiver, the railroads having recom
mended Kttinhan.lt, McCook and Ueorgc
C Nickerson, the latter boiug s director
of tbe system, but wbo was objected to
by the complaiuants.
. . Mo frotawt.
The receivership met with no resist
ance on the part of tbe railroad com
panies, and an agreement was quickly
reached. The bills iu both cases that
of the Santa. Fe and 'Frisco showed
that the lines were heavily involved.
with maturing obligations coming on
soon, and that tbe interest dua Jusu'
ary 1 could not be paid and would be
foreclosed. In both cases the coin-
plainante bill went elaborately Into
figures and were very fall and vol
uminous. Debts Are Enormous,
The bonded indebtedness agtrregmtea

ond morgage bonds, 77,000,00; class B,
second mortgage bonds, $55. 000.000.
The Interest due January 1 will aggre

J. TV. Bernhardt and J. J. McCook,
two of tbe receivers, are well known
in railroad circles throughout the coun
try. Tlie other receiver, Joseph G Wil
son, has been twice mayor of Topeka.
A supplementary bill will likely be
filed at Topeka January 5, which will
be tantamount to foreclosure ot the
bonded indebtedness, in which event
the branch lines, which have been sap
ping the life blood of the main lines,
will lie lopped off.
Orders of the Beeetver.
The order in each of the two cass is
the Siitnc and directs that the receivers
bo "authorized and directed to take iin
mediate possession of all the railroads
and properties (including 8,841) miles of
operated lines) and to run, manage and
iiperats them, and to execute the au

The "red spot' on the disk of Jupiter,
which has been visibe on the southern
hemisphere of the planet since 1878, has
perhaps attracted more attention than any
modern astronomical oddity, unless we
give tlie palm to the so ealled "canals of
Mars." The first hint of the tinted mark
ing on the giant's face were, we believe,
given by Professor K. S. Holden as early
aa 175, but Professor K. K. Barnard ap
pears to be the champion "spot finder"
and observer. . lie bas found that Jupi
ter's great red spot rotates in 0 bourn SS
mlnntes and 85 seconds. Near the equator
of the plauct, however, there is a white
not which is equally as Interesting to
the astronomers as tbe red one, of which
so much has Iwen said and written. This
pale blemish Is a puzzler. It is shaped
like a comet's tail and makes its regular
rotation in 9 hours fts minutes and SO sec
ond. What causes the IS second's differ
ence la the period of rotation between the
two snots w an enigma to all
