Nine Million:* Need to UP Expended In tin? Next FH-o years—Kxpnnscn Have Hccti Cut I>own and the Earning* Have Increased. MILWAUKEE, Sept. 81.—The general report of the receivers of the Northern Pacific railroad showing the condition of the property, which was ordered by Judge Jenkins, was filed in the United States court late in the afternoon. The report is a voluminous document, comprising nearly 40 pages of printed matter, together with the trial balance sheets and the records from the comptroller's office. The report deals largely in generalities, as it would bo impossible, the receivers say, to present a detailed history of their administration in so brief a apace. Tables are adduced, however, to show that in the two years of the receivership, the operating expenses have been decreased. The troti bles of the receivership, embraced in the strike, the conflict with the Coxeyites. the floods and the endless litigation are pointed out. The receivers smy furthei that the condition of the road is not such as to enable it to compete on ai equal basis with its rivals and that to remedy this will require an expenditure of $9,000,000 in the next five years. Condition of the Uoail. At the outset the report states th condition of the road at the lime (he receivers took hold. The total indebt- uess, including the mortgages, was §21,077,725.78, and the annual fixed charges §10,421,025.90. For the years ending June 80, 189-4 and 1895, the rep :-t states that the expenditures under tin- Head of maintenance of way and structures were decrea-ed 10.27 per cent.while the main- tainance and equipment were increased but .06 per cent. The expense of conducting the transportation department has decreased 7.90 per cent. The operating expenses for the year ended June 80, 1894, decreased $230,404.99, against a decrease of $251,745.75 for 1895. The earnings for 1895 were $17,434,980,80, against $16,547,209.51 the year before. The operating expenses for 1895 were 811,319,682.41, against $11,816,120.17, while the net earnings for 1895 were $8,115,398.39, against $4,731,089.34, the net earnings per mile for 1895 being $1,360.32, against $1,052.26. Must Expend Millions. During the next five years the report states, it will be necessary to relay about 14,000 miles of steal rail at a cost of about $4,000,000. It would be also advisable to continue the replacing of temporary wooden structures with permanent earth fills or steel bridges. This would cost about $3,600,000. Summed up, the report continues, provision should be made for extraordinary expenditures in the next five years of $9,000,000, in order that the property may be placed on an equal footing with its rivals for economical operation.

Argument on Kaoli of Thirty-seven Assignments of iSrror. ST. PAUL, Sept. 20.—Attorneys Envin and Schnmaker, for Harry Hayward, have furnished to the supreme court "appellant's brief." It is a printed book of 57 pages. There are 37 assignments of error, and then follows argument on each alleged error, with copious references to authorities and decisions. Counselor Erwin's peculiar bent of mind dominates the argument all through. It is not verbose on any point, and yet every point is seemingly well covered. Special stress is, of course, laid on the allegation of Adry Hayward's insanity and on the exclusion of the testimony of his father and mother to prove insanity had existed among ancestors. Blixt's testimony is also called in question, and allusion is made to the prejudicial effect of improper corroborative testimony that as alleged, clef en cl- wa.i not allowed to refute.

ST. PAUL, Sept. 21.— Attorney General' Childs has begun an action on behalf of the state, in the Ramsey county district court, the object of which is to restrain the Great Northern and Northern Pacific from entering into their proposed agreement for consolidation. The action is brought for the same purpose as the Pearsall case, tried a few weeks ago before Judge Sanboru in the United States circuit court, and in which Judge Sanborn held that the two companies could enter into the agreement if they chose. That case was brought by one of the stockholders of the Great Northern company; the present action is brought by the state to prevent the agreement on account of the damages it is alleged the people of the state will suffer if the deal is consummated. __ OFFERS $4,000,000.

Governor Culburoim Will Do Ills Host to 1'rcveiit the Flglit. AUSTIN, Tex., Sept. 20.—Govcruoi Culberaon was seen in reference to Judge Hurt's opinion at Dallas favorable to prize fighting. He refused to express himself, but it is evident he will ignore the opinion and prevent the fight. To bo prepared for an adverse opinion he has been looking up Governoi Ross' action on the Sullivan-Kilraii fight, which he prevented from cominf off in Texas, and his order to the sheriff, wherein he cites the laws still in force and commands him to enforce them. Governor Culberson has several copies of the order and it is certain he intends to prevent the fight. Texas has a ranger force controlled and governed by special laws and they can be ordered anywhere in the state by the governor without military red tape regulations, and their special province is to prevent infractions of laws. Culberson will probably use this force. INTERNATIONAL ATHLETICS. Americans Capture livery Kvcnt on the Programme.
