Tw attorneys w«re i Airy & Mahone Md G. W, Walter; for the defend an and Mage* * Fin t for the plaintiff Judge Chase this morning decided the suits of Wiler & Co. against A. C. Barnett and Johanna Barnett, brought to set aside the conveyance of tbe Barnett hotel to Mrs. Barnett by her husband in 1S95 and to collect an account of »2,500. The facts as found by the courii were substantially follows: In January, 1895, Bar- ettsent for his attorney, Hon. M. iVinfield, to come down Do the hotel. Te then told bis attorney that laims were due against 1m which he could not ay and wanted to know what odo. Wiofield then sat down, in be presence of Mr. and Mrs. Bar etr, and figured how much Barnett wed and discovered the amount to 3 e between $28,000 and $29,000. Some of this was then due and a con Iderable portion would become due n a short timfi. Judge Winfielc Lhen told tbe Barnett's that Jarnett was Insolvent; thajti the only say he could suggest to release him rom his embarrassments would be .0 find a partner to-buy.a half interest n the hotel (the partner to say cash) and with this cash „„ could release himself from his embarrassments, or to lease his hote ind sell tbe furniture; that it would tie Impossible for him to continue to run his hotel, as there were mortgages against him covering the furniture, which provided that in case the furniture was levied upon by execution or otherwise, the entire debt would become due and the mortgagees would be entitled to a receiver. Judge Winfield told Barnett that, under the circumstances, unless they followed his advice, the property would be thrown Into the hands of receiver and everyiibing would be lost. Thereupon Barnett. advertised with a firm in Chicago, whose business was to sell hotels, lease hotels and sell furniture, for a partner, or to lease his hotel. The result of this was that the Logansport Hotel company, with which E F.Keller wad connected, made a proposition to buy the furniture for 110,000 and lease the hotel for five years, with th« privilege of ten years, at an annual rental of $3,000. Before this tiime Judge Winfield, during thH adjustment of the insurance upon the hotel, which was burned, met with the objection that the Insurance companies would not 'adjust the loss until a certain suit of Baxter & Co., of Chicago, commis- too merchants, wherein they had ued Barnett and garnisheea the In- urance co-npanlies should be settled, nd Wlnfield, to release the attachment, obligated himself to pay the udgment. Winfield and .Barnet't went to the St. Joseph hospital, on the Southside, where Mrs. Barnett was sick, for the purpose of Betting her. to sign the mortgage with her husband to M. Winfield to ndemnify him against all liability n Chicago and to indemnify the Lo- jansport Hotel company against lability on account of these mort- -ages upon the.hotel furniture; that flrs. Barnett refused bo sign these mortgages, saying that she had signed so many mortgages that everything she had would be swept away. Thereupon Winfield suggested ,hat the thing to do to protect her was to let Barnett convey the jroperty to her. There were at that lime against the property in mort- and mechanic's liens about >t the State National bank, when he •eslgned and Wlnfield was appointed. Judge Cttase held that this was a good, sensible business proposision; that there was no fraud in it; that f a receiver or an assignee bad been appointed,the whole property would save been wasted and nothing woul d have been saved for the general creditor. The attorneys were Lairy & Mahoney for the Burnetts and Magee & Funk for Wller & Co. ANOTHEK SUIT. Magee & Funk have filad another suit in the above case for Wiler & Co. against Winfield, as trustee, to secure an enforcement of his trust; or, in other words, have their claim of $2,500 classed with those of tbe •eneral creditors of Bsrnett and wife STILL ANOTHER. Still another suit was filed late this afternoon by Magee & Funk for the City National bank against A. C. Barnett and wife to foreclose a mortgage for D,200 on the hotel property, given by the defendants to John F. Johnson. This mortgage came into the possession of the City National bank with papers alleged to have been turned over by Johnson to the Dank. DEMOCRATIC MASS CONVENTION.

Mir. Gordon says: The most extraordinary feature that our excavations have yet brought to light is the hieroglyphic stairway already referred to. Facing the plaza at the southern end, it occupied a central position on the western side of the high pyramidal elevation that forms the northern wing of the main structure. Even in the sad state of ruin in which we behold it now it affords a magnificent spectacle. "What must it have been in the days when it was entire arid reached from the floor of the plaza to the entrance of the temple that stood on the height 100 feet above! When discovered in 1894, this .stairway was completely buried ben£2th the debris fallen from the temple, ot which not one stone remained upon another. The upper part of the stairway itself bad also been thrown from its place as if by an earthquake and lay strewn upon the lower portion. When at length, after months of labor, on which from 50 to 100 men were employed, the fallen material was cleared away, an acre "of ground was covered with broken sculptures removed during the progress o:E the work, and the lower steps weire found unharmed. lu the center of the stairway, at the base, is a throne or pedestal rising to the fifth step and projecting eight feet in front. The design upon its face is rich in sculpture and delicate in detail. It is made up in part of handsome faces, masks, death's heads and scrolls, beautifully carved and disposed with perfect symmetry, but the ensemble is perfectly unintelligible. On the face of each step in the stairway is u row of hieroglyphs, carved in medium relief, running the entire length. At intervals in the ascent the center is occupied by a human figure'of noble and commanding appearance, arrayed in splendid attire, seated on the steps. The upper parts of all these figures were broken away, but the pieces of several were recovered and restored. On each side was a solid balustrade two feet thick. The upper parts of these were also broken away, but by careful study and comparison enough was recovered to enable us to make out the curious and complicated design. Portraitlike busts issuing from the jaws of grotesque monsters', standing out upon these balustrades and repeated at regular intervals, formed their principal adornment. Notwithstanding the arduous toil under the fierce rays of a tropical sun, the exhuming of this stairway, in the construction of' which the ancient sculptors exhausted the resources of their art, was a fascinating labor and was performed under the constant stimulus of expectation and the excitement of discovery. When the lastf day's work was done and I stood upon the broken throne at the base of the stairway to take a last look at the scene of my labors, so familiar had I grown with every feature of the D OLAN'S OPERA HOUSE.

From my position J could see tbe whole plaza, with its monuments and temple crowned pyramids. In front of me the smooth cemented pavement stretched away •westward co a range of terraces that bounds it in that direction, but leaves unobstructed the view of the mountains beyond the valley. In other days the parting shafts of the sun struck the temple, and its sculptured walls, adorned with paint and stucco, flashed in the light, until the shadows, mounting the throne and climbing the stairway, shot above the highest tower and left tbe city wrapped in gloom. For a moment the peaks stood dark and gigantic: against the dazzling sunset hues, crowned with glory; then the colors faded rapidly, giving way to a pale glow above the mountains, while endden darkness fell upon the valley. Musing on the scene, I was dimly aware of a lotg array of shadows projected from the -past. Nor was it altogether fancy.
