The Northern Pacific Is Again Re
strained Prom Retiring Its Pre
ferred Stock Harriman Believed
to Be Behind the Action This
Minneapolis, Minn., Dec. 30. Judge
Elliott, of the district nonrt of Henepin
county, today granted a temporary oruVr
restraining tbe officers of the Northern
Pacific Railway company from retiring
tbe preferred stock of that company.
Tbe order waa issued on tbe application
of Peter Power, of New York, who holds
100 shares of tbe common stock. It was
supposed that the failnre of the action
brought in the New York conrte by
holders of preferred stock cleared aw y
the last obstacle to tbe retirement of the
preferred on January 1. Leaving the
Hill interest free to act. It is inferred,
although it does not bo appear, that the
present action is brought in behalf of
the Harriman interest, to prevent con
trol passing out of its hands for another
year or until the legal standing of the
Northern Securities company is settled.
Tbe claim is set up by Mr. Power in
his suit that the retirement of the pre.
ferred stock is in violation of the agree
ment that such retirement would lay no
additional burdens upon the common
atock, and he holds that the certificates
of debenture bonds to be issued to effect
the retirement of tbe preferred stock
would become lien upon the common
stock, and thus work an injury to hia
property. It is understood that tbe
block of 100 shares held by Power is the
only block of common not hitherto con
trolled and definitely located upon one
aide or the other, tbe Harriman people
or the Hill-Morgan interest.
The restraining order will not only be
served on the officials in Minnesota, but
will be telegraphed to New York and
served on the officials there.
Just after the noon hour today, Presi
dent Gharlea 8. Mellen, of the Northern
Pacific Railroad company, was served
with papera which enjoin the company
from retiring the preferred stock.
Bad Fire at Victoria.
Poet Townsend, Wash., Dec. 80.
Mail advices from Victoria atate that a
moat disastrous fire occurred in that city
last night, entailing a loss of $760,000.
The building occupied by Spencer's Ar
cade, British Columbia's largest depart
ment store, waa completely gutted by
fire, whioh started at 10 o'clock at night.
Before tbe department reached tbe scene
flames were leaning from every window
in the building, and it was with dif
ficulty that the adjoining buildings
were saved. The origin of the fire is
thought to have been Irom electric
wires. Tbe tin roof covering tbe build
ing was heavily charged with electricity.
The stock waa partially covered with
insurance, the amount being $125,000.
There will be very little salvage.

Philadelphia, Dec. 30. From all
paits of Eastern Pennsylvania today re
ports show that the rivers and creeks
which became greatly swollen as a re
suit of Saturday night's and Sunday's
continuous rain, are steadily falling.
There is one exception, however, the
lower part of the Susquehanna river be
ing reported to be still rising and close
to the danger mark. Although con
siderable damage was done, the lostes
will not be great, moBt of the flooded
areas being lowlands along the Upper
Schuylkill, Lehigh and Susquehanna
rivers. In the anthracite coal districts
a few of the mines were flooded, causing
a suspension of work for the day. Along
the lower Susquehanna there is appre
hension that damage will result fiom
ice gorgeB. The water is said to be ris
ing six inches an hour in that vicinity.
The Schuylkill river in this city rose
18 feet above normal, which rise has
been passed only once in 32 ytars.

along tbe riyer walrforced to suspend

London, Dec. 80. Commenting on
the London Times' statement from
Washington that persons of .consider

profess to b.'lieve that war between tbe
United States and Germany is inevit
able, the St. James' Gazette, though it
does not believe that such a disaster will
be allowed to occur over a dispute In re
gard to the debts of Venezuela to Ger
many, says that If it does, there can be
no doubt that English sympathies will
be with America. At tbe same time
the St. James' Gasette expreases tbe
hope that the United States (will not al
low such states as Venezuela to gain tbe
Impression that they can reckon on the
protection of the Monroe Doctrine if
they choose to repudiate their obliga
tions to Europe.
A diapatcb to the Central News from
from Berlin says:
'It Is believed to be certain that an
ultilmatum will be issued within three
days and that an attack on Venrauela
