Trustees Enjoined From Faying: the
Countess Any Part of the Estate.
NEW TORK, Nov. 26. Samuel Unter
meyer applied to and obtained today from
Judge Fitzgerald, sitting In, the, Supreme
Court, an Injunction order, returnable
Monday next, against the Count and
Countess de Castellane, Edwin and
George Gould, Howard Gould and Helen
SL Gould, an trutees under tho will of
Jay Gould restraining them from pay
Inig to Anna Gould, Countess of Cas
tellane, any part of the estate In the
bands of the trustees, or from applying
any part of the trust fund to the debts
of Anna Gould, or to her support or that
of her children, until the further direc
tion of tho court.
The plaintiff In the suit is Anthony J.
Dlttman. who sues as assignee of Asher
Werthemer, a London bric-a-brac dealer.
The complaint, which is a long printed
document, contains copies of drafts
drawn by Werthemer and accepted In
writing by the Count and- Countess de
Castellane, amounting to upwards of
JSS6.000. of which $285,000 and upwards
Is past due. It is alleged that Anna
Gould has J18.000.000 held In trust for her
by her brothers and sister, and that her
Income Is about 5900.000. "It is claimed
that $260,000 a year is all that the Count
and Countess require for their support,
and the plaintiff asks that the remain
der of the income should be applied to
the payment of the couple's debts. It is
eald that over 1X0,000 of surplus Income
has already accumulated, which ought to
be used for this purpose. The present
suit Is said to be a test case. and. it is
reported, is backed by other creditors.
than werthemer.
A few weeks ago George J. Gould was
appointed guardian for the .Countess de
Castellane in a proceeding In the French
courts. The creditors claim that the pur
pose of this proceeding was to get the
property of the Countess away from at
tack by her creditors, so as to enable the
Goulds to force settlement of tho debts at
their own time and on their own terms.
Judge Dillon, counsel for the Gould fam
ily, made the following statement con
cerning the suit:
"The Countess de Castellane is not en.
tlUed to any 'part of the capital or prin
cipal sum of the estate of her father, as
the statement of the plaintiff seems to
imply. The will ot Mr. Gould provides, in
substance, that the income Is to be a
trust fund in the hands of the trustees,
to be appropriated for the support and
maintenance of his daughter, and that
she cannot anticipate or dispose of any
part of that income until it is actually
received by her, and that until so re
ceived it shall not bo liable for her debts
or those of her husband: and undoubtedly
the trustees will fed It to be the heirs'
duty to see that this provision In the will
Is carried out in its full extent, or so far
as possible. Rio has no control, nor
has the court any control, over the prin
clpal sum. which goesMo her children af
ter her death.
"In the foregoing statement It is said
that creditors claimed at the proceedings
In Paris, whereby George Gould was ap
pointed guardian for his sister, that the
tdea of the Gould family was to get pos
session of the' Income of the Countess de
Castellane and force her creditors -to set
tle on their own terms. This is obvi
ously a mistake, as the only effect ot
that proceeding is to prevent her from In
currlng fresh obligations without the con
eoat of her brother."

The Colorndo Senator Says It Is Not
DENVER, Nov. 26. Senator Henry M.
Teller, of Colorado, who left for "Wash
ington tonight, speaking of the effect
upon the silver question the defeat of
Bryan will have, said that he did not in
tend to abandon the silver question be
cause of the result of the recent election.
"The silver question is not dead," he
continued, "and will be a live question
in 'American politics for years to come,
2nd I am firmly of the opinion that we
will ultimately return to the bimetallic
system, in my judgment the only system
that can secure stability of prices and
equity between the creditor and aeDtor."
Bpeaklng of Important legislation to be
enacted by Congress during the coming
session, he said:
"I anticipate that there will be an at
tempt made to Increase the regular Army,
Independent of any force that may be
necessary for the Philippine Islands, to
the extent of .100,000, as a permanent
Army. I doubt very much whether such
a measure can be passed during the short
session. So far as I am concerned I am
very much opposed to it, and will do
all I can to prevent it. I am quite will
ing that the Government should have all
the forces In the Philippine Islands that
may be necessary to conquer if it is
the policy of the Administration to dis
pose of that question in that way.
"There will also be an effort to pass
what Is known as the subsidy shipping
bill, which will Impose a burden uoon the
f people ot anywhere from 310,000,000 to $20,-
000,000 a year for -a number of years to
come. I do not believe It Is a wise
measure, but rather expect to see it
passed during this session. For a while
there will be, I think, a great waste of
money. It la not as objectionable as the
Army bill.
"I think there will he, as there ought
to be, an attempt to reduce the present
war-revenue tax, and to get rid of some
of the very objectionable features. I no
tice that the action of the Cabinet ap
pears to have been In that direction. I
hope It may be, done.
"Aside from these matters I doubt
whether there will be very much other
legislation attempted during the short ses
sion." Senator Teller does not expect to par
ticipate in' the Senatorial contest in Col
orado, but considers that the fuslon'forces
should hold the ground in making a se
lection of a Senator.

Timber Resources
of the Isl-
WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. The division
of customs and lnsuiar affairs of the War
Department has made public a summary
of thft first report of the Philippine bureau
of forestry organized In its present form
under an. orderof the Military Governor,
dated April 14. 1900. Its first work was
confined to ascertaining the conditions ot
the records received from the Spanish
Government, under which that bureau.had
not only had the care of the forests, but
also the aurvey of the public lands.
The law In force at the time of Ameri
can occupation are said to be in line with
the most advanced foreign legislation of
Europe,!. but were not fully enforced and
licensed the cutting of any and every
thing. The result was thafvaluable rub
ber, gutta-percha and ylang-ylang trees
were taken, and even the most valuable
used as firewood.
The old regulations were translated dnd
revised, taking effect in their new form
on July 1 last. They provide for a system
of licensing by which permits to cut tim
ber can be secured, the fees being based
upon the different varieties, of which 396
are named in the order. After the regu
lations were promulgated, more than 50
additional species of trees became known,
and others are being brought to the
knowledge of the bureau almost every
week. The director. Captain Ahern, esti
mates the total number of tree species in
the archipelago at nearly 500.
-There are no pure forests of any one
species, rarelymore than three or four
trees of any one variety being found
grouped together, so that a lumberman
looking for a shipload of one kind of tim
ber would find it practically Impossible to
cut that and no other, and cargoes must
be assembled from different points.
Captain Ahern states that from different
sources of information he Is led to be
lieve the public forest lands comprise
from one-fourth' to posrlbly one-half the
area of the Philippines, or from 2O.CO0.C00
to 40,000,000 acres. There are fully 5.000,00d
acres of virgin forest owned by the state
In the Islands of Mindoro and Paradua.
The Island of Mindanao, with an. area
of -"some 20.000.000 acres Is almost entirely
'ioovcred -with,-; timber, - and vea lcthe
Province of Cayagan. In Luzon, there arS
more than 2,000,000 acres of forest.
In other provinces of Luzon, especially
in the country close to Manila, much ot
the timber has been cut, and to fill large
contracts the lumbermen are obliged to
go quite a distance from the city in order
to find a eultable tract. v
Captain Ahern mentions tracts of virgin
forests to be seen on the southern Islands
where from 10,000,000 to 20,000,000 cubic feet
magnificent timber per acre was standing,
with trees more than 150 feet In height,
the trunks clear of branches for 60 feet
and more than four feet In diameter. He
states that In these forests there are mil
lions ot cubic feet ot timber,, which should
be cut out In order to thin this dense
growth, so that the maximum annual
growth could bo obtained.
There Is a large variety ot valuable
gum, rubber and gutta-percha trees, 17
dye woods and the ylang-ylang, the oil
from the blossoms of which latter tree
is the base of so many perfumes.
There are no forest roads or river drive
ways In the Islands considered worthy ot
mentioning. At present the trees are
felled far from any road, and hauled out
