Bo Decided. CLINTON, March 25.—Two cases have been filed With the bounty cWk here for trial at tho April terra 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, one a'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 mu'ct law,"' These mortgages have been foreclosed, and they ask the court to enjoin the defendants from collecting the $600 mulct tax until-..thorn ortgages are satisfied—or to establish their priority. Eminent legal talent has been retained by both ,sides,-.and the case will doubtless go to the supreme court in any event., .'(... : .;•_,.. OTTUMWA SENSATION.' County 1 Official- Caught.

As the city marshal/ •who made-the arrest is a' democrat', Bowles and the republicans claim that a trap was deliberately set to catch him to even up tH'e 'Brady disgrace. The democratic organ demands ttyc, immediate dismissal of Bowles- by tho republican board of supervisors. The affair has created a tremendous sensation. • , , AGREEMENT REACHED.

It divides the property equally between the three children and the distribution is to bo. made at once. The fignt against the other will is now on Jn court. At Boston recently in the presence of 2,000 people at the 'Suffolk Athletic club Jake Kilrain, of Baltimore, and Steve O'Donnell, of Australia, Corbett'e sparring partner, fought eight rounds, and at the close the referee, 1'atsy Shepard, amid shouts of "Kilrain, '' declared .the contest a draw. It took the referee five minutes to reach a decision. It was thought 'by many that'Kilrnin had thebest'of the fight. 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 elqven 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 pfficial defense made by the minister pf war of the officers who attacked and wrecked tjie office of the newspaper, El Globo. Jt is probable that Field Marshal Martinez Campos will form a new cabinet. The editors of all the newspapers have agreed that 'unless the 'freedom of the press is guaranteed' _ they will suspend publication. The Justia and Idqal (newspapers) are to be prosecuted before a .court martial on account of 'articles which they published reflecting- aipon the conduct of array officers. The British government, through its minister, has' submitted ' its ultimatum to Nicaragua.

By the 1 * terms' 'of the ultimatum Croat Britain is t tp name one of the commissioners and, Nicaragua another, and these two are to the third, who shall not belong to the United States.

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 in 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. The distress of the bereaved f calls loudly for aid, Fifty-one women are bereft of husbands, and with their families probably make a total of 300 left destitute. __ _ APPROPRIATION DEFEATED. General Appropriation Bill Defeated la the Arizona House. PHOENIX, Ariz., March 24.—Amid scenes of wild disorder the eighteenth session of the assembly came to an abrupt termination at 1 a. m. When the general appropriation bill was taken up in the house, every scheme to delay its passage was resorted to. The object was. tp.kill all chances of the removal of the penitentiary from Yuma to Prcscott, for which the Santa Fe.rail-' road's agents have been making a fight,' opposed by the Southern Pacific Com- bany's lobbyists. They prevented the taking of the vote until after midnight, when the session lapsed through limitation, and Speaker Carpenter arbitrarily adjourned the house. Nearly all the territorial officers and institutions are thus left without funds for the coming two years. An extra session can only be Called by congress at its next session.
