CHICAGO. Oct t Wheat 6SX0TO4&
Ths Park Commissioners held their reg
ular meeting this morning and after tran
sacting the regular routine business, a
couple of communications were read.
A man In the state of Washington ot
tered to sell th city two cougars for
tb City Park Zoo. The matter was held
in abeyance. :
The manager of the Buffalo Bill Wild
West Shew, which is In winter Quarters
in the Big Horn Basin. Wyo., also nad
an offer to make the commission. - As
nearly every on knows, the show has a
large herd of'bufCaloa and It Is Incrtas
lng rapidly. They wish to dispose of
some of their surplus animals, and make
the city an offer to sell It from one to
three of them at 8450 per head.
At first glance this figure looks rathei
large, but some of the commissioners
and the Mayor are rather favorably "in
pressed with the proposition. The scar
city of the animals is what makes them
valuable, and if the city could secure '.
couple of young cows and a bull, in a fw
years Portland could sport a nice herd
of this noble animal Itself.
No action; was taken on the matter as
ths commissioners wished' further time
for Investigation. Three buffalo would
probably be ths number, wanted, and th
commissioners are chary about investing
such a sum. It is considered that a single
cow and a bull, st 890Q would b dearer
than two cows and a bull at 81350. .

Receiver Asked for Pacific Mer-canttfetopny
It Is Claimed by the Plaintiffs
That They Were Deceived.
W. B. JCassf commenced suit in the
Circuit Court this morning against the
Pacific Mercantile Company and its local
agent John F. Olson, asking for the ap
pointment, of a receiver.
This Mercantile Company Is-the off

claims that they were induced to .part
with their stock In ths old Pevore com
pany through misrepresentation. He at
leges that Olson ' represented that the
Tontine stock had no value, and induced
him and others Ho transfer to him their
stock, taking in exchange .stock in the
Peciflo Mercantile Company. As a mat
ter of fact Kaser says the Tontine stock
did have a valUe. "The whole object of
Mr. Kaaer's suit Is to get the money back
he and his friends paid in.
The plans of the two companies were
about the same. They guaranteed you i'i
for every 81 you invested. You would pay
the solicitor 85 down.- That was his com
mission. Then you would pay the com
pany 81. 2S for 60 weeks, making in all 80.
At the expiration of ths 60 weeks there
was Issued to you a paid-up contract en
titling you to a two-carat diamond valued
at 8lttt or ths qttvslnr In cash.
But you did not get the diamond, or
cash with your contract You had to
wait your turn. You were told that as
fast as the oontrsct taken out ahead of
you In the series in which your contract
belonged, matured, , you were Just that
much nearer your money. Finally you
would get your money, as agreed, or sell
out at a slight advance over the amount
you put In. s ;
Where th company mad elts profits was

Installments for JO'br 80 weeks or more
and then drop' out: When Jthe company
