PRIME WINS THE CASE, Judge Spurrier Decided the FHTUOUS Nntloiml Uuiird Election Case. DKH MOISKS, Jan. 10.— Judge Spurrier decided tho Prime-Guest case in favor of John It. Prime. He has ordered I. M. Karle, attorney for Prime, to prepare the order in mandamus, commanding the governor to issue a, commission to Prime, as brigadier general of the First brigade, J. N. fl. Tho decision means a clash between the courts and the executive department of the state. There may be lively times, if the governor deems it prudent to take issue with the courts, and carries out tho threat made by Attorney General Remlcy, that the governor would refuse to obey tho order of court, in case the decision was against him. It is possible trouble will be averted by au immediate appeal to the supreme court. A REMARKABLE SPECTACLE. Tax Payer* Thank a Hoard of Supervisor* for Its Work. Sioux CITY, Jan. 9.—A remarkable scene was witnessed in the courthouse when a hu'ge delegation of heavy tax payers called upon the board of supervisors, in session, and personally thanked the members for the splendid management of the finances of the county the past year.

The first number of Harper's Bazar for 18OT will contain the initial chapter of a very noteworthy ""series on "Infancy and Childhood," >yritten irom the standpoints of advanced modern ideau by Mrs. Frances Fisher Wood. It is said that the smallest issue of the Cosmopolitan for 1890 was 300,000 copies, The growth of its circulation in eight years from 20,000 copies to the present circulation is something phenomenal, but it has been accomplished by publishing a tirst-elass magazine at a price which makes it obtainable by all, It is now selling at $1.00 por year. Herbert D. Ward, the novelist and husband of Elizabeth Stuart Phelps \Ynyd, has written a new novel, which w}ll bo the fiction feature at' the ladies* Home Journal during 1897. It ib u humorous htory and has the unique title of "The Burglar Who Moved Paradise." It is -a sequel to Mrs. i Ward's "An Old Maid's Paradise," the husband tak'ug up the pen where j Miss Phelps had naturally to put down when she became Airs.

The bold declaration of the executive prerogative by Secretary Olhey has challenged statesmanlike consideration. The majority in both houSPS pi congress seem to hesitate to engage in a struggle over this important constitutional question, just as one administration's sun is setting and that oi another dawning. Consequently, it may be said with ft great degree of positiveness that the Cameron resolutions will, not be passed. If they ^shotild by any parliamentary PP 8 . 5 "' billty be adopted by the senate, it vjuid be practically impossible foi thein to run the gauntlet of the hoilsc of representatives. It is conceded on all hands now that the resolutions could not be passed over the veto of the president. Hence the apparent conehision to do nothing. ENTER PLEAS OF OUJLTY. liady Scott im<!

Loxuox, Jan. 8.—The spectators who crowded the old Bailey court room to watch the proceedings of the action for criminal libel brought by Lord Russell against Lady Scott, his mother-in-law, John Cockerton and 'Win.

Tho announcement created a profound sensation. Tho judge sentenced each of the prisoners to eight months in prison, without hard labor. BREVITIES.

London dispatch: The Westminster Gazette gives prominence, to the report that Queen Victoria has decided to commemorate the fact that she has enjoyed the longest reign iu English history by abdicating in favor of the Prince of Wales. A train on the Missouri Pacific went into the river near New Haven, Mo., a few days ago. It was a freight and consisted of eighteen cars, two of which were loaded with mules. The engineer, fireman and one brakeman were drowned. Official dispatches recently received from Manilla chronicle a battle on the Pasig river, where tho Philippine rebels wore trying to obstruct navigation. The Spanish loss was ten men killed and twenty wounded, while the insurgents had'thirty-two killed aud many wounded. Thirteen conspirators were shot at Manilla. Four of the five trnin wreckers in jail at Birmingham, Alu., have confessed to the formation of the fiendish plot to wreck and rob the Southern Railway's fast express from "Washington, D. C., at McComb's trestle, twelve miles east of Birmingham, on the night of December ID, and this confes- ] sion leads to the belief that the same gang removed the rail which wrecked the Birmingham Mineral train at Caliaba river bridge, causing the death of twenty-six people and injuring eleven others, 011 December 27, although the men under arrest are silent as to this wreck, Gov. Altgeld, of Illinois, recently pardoned twenty convicts, twelvo of whom were charged with murder. The sentences of the latter ranged from short terms for manslausher to imprisonment for life for murder in the first degree. Their names are: Henry Jones, John F, Burke, Charles Dixon, Coin Harris, William Landers, John Crowley, Frank Webber, John Walker, Charles Robinson, Lawrence Farley, Kathryn Ketchner and William B, Sibert. The 'reason .given 1 by the governor for the issuance of the pardons was that they were recommended by the state's attorneys of the counties represented. The republican caucus of the Penn* sylvania legislature nominated A. Boise Penrose for United States senator, to svieceed Cameron, on the fii-st ballot. The vote was; Penrose, J33; Wamunukor, 75; Cameron, 1'. Congressman J. B, .Robinson, J; Judge Charles 1<J.

Washington, Jan. 11—The second day's lit'bate on the Pacific Railroad funding bill developed by far the moat sensational incident of this session o£ Congress. Mr. Johnson (Rep., Cat,), tho only member of the California delegation who favors the funding bill, took, occasion to niake:a remarkable petst ft. al attack on Editor Hearst of t he -i an Francisco Examiner. He described Mr. Hearst and Mayor Sutro as men who were terrorizing the Pacific coast mehibers, ahd inade statements com corning the former which led Mr. Cooper (Rep., Wis.) to characterize , H later as the "'Most disgraceful attack in the legislative annals of the United States." The speech created a profound sensation, which was increased by Mr. Cooper's denunciation of it as a cowardly attempt to blacken the reputation of a man of "positive genius." Mr. Cooper also took occasion to score the gentleman from California roundly for his attitude toward the bill. Mr, Johnson made no attempt to reply to Mr. Cooper. This incident completely overshadowed the interest in the debate on the funding bill, and thereafter it proceeded quietly to the hour when tho recess was taken. Today the bill will be taken up for amendment under the flve-Eiinutc rule. When Mr. Johnson concluded his speech Mr. Arnold (Pa.) made a brief speech for the measure. When Mr. Arnold finished, Mr. Cooper [Rep., Wis.), one of the strongest foes of the Pacific bill, took tho floor. Mr. Arnold (Rep., Pa.) followed in favor of the bill, and Messrs. Parker (Rep., N. J.), Bell (Pop., Col.) and Shafroth (Rep., Col.) against it. Mr. Hepburn (Rep., Iowa) supported the measure in an. extended argument, as the only solution of the problem at this juncture. He took up some of the statements made in the course of tho debate to show that they were reckless and utterly without foundation, and said that it was those irresponsible statements which clouded the issue, and created much opposition to the measure. He argued that government ownership of railroads was bound up in the defeat of the pending bill. That was why its opponents were insistent. This was to be made the entering wedge, [f we took the road without terminals, said he, we would, as a condition, precedent, have to pay $61,000,000, the amount of the first mortgage, and then wo would have a road which could be ilt for leas than the discharge'of the first mortgage cost us.
