Pierce each own one*ha[lf'of the stock. Mr. Pierce ts president and manager and Mr. Wallace secretary and treasurer. Mr. Wallace says* however, that he has not been allowed to have" anything to say • tn the management of the company and that Pierce picked quarrels with him every time he -has-tried to talk business with him.

Therefore He asks for the appointment of a receiver who shall sell the property, pay the debts of the company and divide the proceeds between the two. MULCT TAX. Question.of 1'rlorlty Over Mortgages to .,,• Be Decided. CMNTON, March 25.—Two cases have "been filed With; the county clerk here .for trial at the April term of court, that will be watched with interest all over the state, as they will' "determine the priority of the mulct tax and may 'decide the 'constitutionality of that law. In one case the city of Clinton is made defendant; in the other Clinton county. The two plaintiffs, onea'local building and loan association, have mortgages on two pieces of property occupied by saloons, the mortgages having been given before .the. passage 'of'the mulct law. ' These mortgages have been foreclosed, and they, ask the court to "en join the defendants from collecting the 8000 mulct tax until the mortgages are satisfied—or to establish their priority. Eminent legal talent has been retained by both sidesj-and the case will doubtless go to the supreme court in any event., . i OTTUMWA SENSATION. County Official Caught In a Bad .Situation. "OrruMwAi March' 23".— The "pathway" of the.overseer of the city poor here seems to be paved with temptations. Patrick Brady, the democratic, official who was sentenced to two years imprisonment in the penitentiary for buying railroad, tickets for mythical •: women and children, was succeeded by James Bowles, a prominent citizen and republican politician. He was caught in flagrante delictu with a woman of the town, whom the democratic organ claims he was supporting- with the public funds, and pleaded guilty and ] was fined $50. As the city marshal who made the arrest is a' democrat; | Bowles and the republicans claim that j a trap was deliberately set to catch him to even up the 'Brady disgrace. The democratic organ demands the immediate dismissal of Bowles- by the republican board of supervisors. The affair ' has" created a tremendous sensation. , ,!'.'.-. AGREEMENT REACHED.

Upon hearing of the action the emperor sent the following dispatch to Bismarck: /: -.•;•-.

Mayo, veterinary at the State Agric\iltural College, is at fault, pleuro-pneumdnia '' has been located in Kansas. The dread disease has, it is said, made its appearance in Geary, Waubuusee and Morris counties. Some time past the cattle in that part of the state have been sick. The matter was finally called to the attention of the governor, and under his instruc- tions'Prof. Mayo made an investigation. lie reported that, in his judgment, the district is inflicted with typical pleuro- pncumpnia. Eight head of cattle afflicted \yith the disease, he declared, had died; about fifty head i are now suffering with it and : about* 200 head are exposed.

The faculty of Harvard University has .recently again taken a firm stand against inter-collegiate foot ball contests, and it looks doubtful if the crimson •will be represented by an e-lqven on the gridiron next fall.' The motion adopted is worded as follows: "The .faculty, having received and considered a communication from the committee on. the regulation of athletic sports, remain of the opinion that no students under their charge should be permitted to take part in inter-collegiate foot-ball contests.;' Another meeting of the faculty will be held Augusts, when final and decisive action on the question is anticipated. The students emphatically condemn this action. The Spanish ministry has resigned in consequence of the trouble in the chamber of deputies a few days ago, when all the reporters withdrew from the house as a protest against the official defense made by the minister of 'war of the officers who attacked and wrecked the office of the newspaper, El Globo. .Tjit is probable that Field Marshal Martinez Campos will form a new cabinet.

The cause of the explosion has not yet been ascertained. The hoisting plant of the mine was completely wrecked ahd several men on the outside of ttl8 mine were killed. Investigation proves that the inner workings of the mine were badly wrecked and that fully fifty- nine miners have lost their lives. The bodies of a dozen or,, raof& hafe been 1 recovered, and as the're \s no.ftl'e in the mine it is thought all'will be?edove#ed, though there is little hop<e that anybody in the mine is alive. EVANSTON, Wyo., March 35.—Ever since the explosion at Red Canyon mine the work has progressed steadily for gaining access to the mine, bringing out the dead and caring for the bereaved families. Not one m the mine at the time of the explosion escaped, all being instantly killed. Salt Lake and Omaha were telegraphed for coffins, and the burial of the victims will occur as soon as possible.

It, is the first time in his life that the venerable statesman of China has set his foot out; of • Chinese soil. ' At his advanced age he now journeys to China's traditional 'foe to offer enormous, concessions as a means'of securing peace^ It can be authoritatively stated that the general terms of peace are already understood, and all that remains is arranging the details within certain specified limits. The general terms of Li Hung Chang's authority are to cede territory, pay a cash indemnity, grant the independence of .Corea and arrange new treaty rotations with Japan by which Japan's extraterritorial, juris% diction in China will be maintained.

No Serious Trouble Anticipated at Washington, WASHINGTON, March 23.—The trouble between Great Britain and Nicaragun. which has threatened to entangle the United States, has not assumed the belligerent aspect indicated by recent reports. These reports were to*the effect'that Great -Britain '• had assured the United States there \yould'be no encroachment on American soil, and that with, this understanding Great- Britain • might, bombard GreytQwn without the intervention of the United States. That Great Britain, made any such representation- is discredited by those best advised on the subject. It is known definitely that Sir Julian Pauncei'ote, British ambassador, had no communication with Uresham on the Nicaragua!! question. The'Nicara- guan officials consider the question readily susceptible of peaceful adjustment and there is not the remotest chance of the bombardment of Grey- town. ' From the British standpoint the trouble is one in which the interests of the United States and Great Britain are united rather .than opposed as several United States citizens were expelled at the same time with, the British, vice consul, r ALLiANCA AFFAIR.
