B Avoy Estate Into Bankruptcy— MortKages May Not Be Good. Before D. B. Avey failed in the bar ness business he secured some of his local creditors with mortgages. Undo these they have taken possession of th stock and are selling it out. F. M Curtiss represents three or four of thi heaviest outside creditors and in thei behalf has filed a petition in theUnitei States district court to have the Avey estate put into involuntary bankruptcy. His theory of the bankruptcy law is that under its provisions such mortgages as Mr. Avey gave will not take precedence of the claims of other creditors. The petition in bankruptcy was filed today, and considerable interest will attend the outcome, it Is a new .•question. . GAEL SETOHELL IS WELL. Recent Letters Announce That Ho IB Out of the IIospltal-IIoplnK to Soon Come Home. Mrs. Setchell received four letters from her son Carl Monday.

He says malaria and dysentery have been very prevalent, and that the larger part of his company are sick. All sorts of rumors reach him of a return and he lives in hopes of reaching Algona this summer. One paragraph of one letter is of pecial interest, as it gives a glimpse )f local conditions: "The natives have ent in a peace commission and they lave been talking with Otis und the American commission here and have md the proposed method of government explained to them. Most of them eera pretty well satisfied and they lave gone back to explain the situation ,o the rest of the leaders. Many think that hostilities will soon cease. The government has offered $15 bounty to jvery native who will surrender and ;urn in a gun. I think that will bring them to time. AtBigaa, where Com- mny F is stationed, the natives are all •eturning to their homes and putting in their crops. Everything is quiet and peaceful."
