The decision is in substance that the plaintiff has no legal title by adoption, The .child' is the ward of the state and subject to the orders of the courts. For the good of the child, if Ra3 r Burke, the child, is the" son" of 'an. abandoned woman, the court is loath to find suiclr a • conclusion, 'judicially fixing, a stigma on the child. The Elliotts believe the child Is theirs. He is attached to them, and the family. The evidence of Burke's marriage is unsatisfactory. Mrs. Burke, as a witness, shows unfitness for the custody of the child. The preponderance of evidence favors tho identity of Ray Elliott. .The case is disposed of on other grounds which it is unne'&essary to discuss/, i The child is remanded to the Elliotts' care. The republican state convention will be held at Des MoSnes on July 10 and Joe K, Lane, of Davenport, will be tempprary chairman.

Never was there a time ih the history of business when the Wildcatter' was more alert than now. Men are in the field night and day looking for possible developments. Home idea of the activity in field operations may be had when it is stated that on April i the number of new wells, drilling attd rigs in course df construction were 1,401. The monthly a'verage of new operations last year was only 233, and tho total number of wells completed only 3,548 for the entire year. Whether the present search is successful or not, there will be an enormous amount of money spent in prospecting. The cost of drilling a well rangas from $1,200 to 89,000. Estimating the present number of new operations . at 81,500 and the cost of each well .$4,000, it is seen that not less than $0,000,000 is now being expended in new work in all fields. Tho extent of the industry is shown by a few comparative figures. The total production of gold in the United States last year was $4 3,000,000, The production of oil for the same period was 48,500,000 barrels, which at to-day's cash price represents a value of $72,500,000. This quantity fell short 0,800,000 barrels in supplying the demand, which was drawn from the old stocks, reducing the latter to less than 4,000,000 barrels April 1. Within the past few weeks the Standard Oil Company is estimated to have purchased 83,000,000 worth of 'territory from individual producers. The most important of the purchases are the Kanawah Oil Company's property in the Sistersville field for $050,000 and eighty-eight wells of ' the Wheeling Gas Company in McDonald's field. .for 8550,000. TH"E"RINC"oF3ATlJiRN. ImportHiit Discovery by a I'eniiHylvuniu. ' Astronomer. PITTSKURG, 'Pa., April H.—Professor James E. Keeler, of the. Allegheny Observatory, has made the important astronomical discovery which for the first time .is positively demonstrated, that the ring of Saturn.is inade' up of innumerable satellites, and that they do not revolve at.- the same rate of speed about the planety Prof. Keeler has obtained direct proof of this by means of the .spectroscope. ..Prom- photographs taken by Prof. Keeler, :it has been found that the inner, edge pf the ring moves faster than the outer edge, as it must if the ring is made ,up of small satellites. If the ring revolved as a whole, the outer edge would move faster than-the 'inner. The' motions of the different ports of the ring in miles per becoad can only'be given after the photographs have, been accurately,measured under the microscope. This will be done by Prof. Keeler as soon as possible. REBELS GAINING GROUND. lint the Local FnpergDure Not I'libllsli (he Facts.

The fifth term of the new treaty includes Various trade features, such as free access to Chinese rivers.
