Having- sa .dJ With Mr.
one 12. Judge
MerrittT1 tbB district court, handed
Line & Utah Northern tase today. He
appoints John M. Egan; of t. Paul,
and W. H. Baucroft, of Suit Lake, re
ceivers of the entire property within
the jurisdiction of the ouurt This is
upou the condition that interest now
due on mortgage shall be paid by July
1, and all interest falling due there
after be paid within thirty days from
maturity. Otherwise the property
shall be surrendered to the receivers of
the Union Paciflo road.
No reference was made to issuing re
ceivers' certificates.
The Trust company made a strong
fight for a single receiver, olaiming
that the appointment of an associate
receiver would defeat the objects of the
suit In some quarters it is claimed
that the loan and trust company will
not accept the condition imposed by the
court.. This opinion is in part shared
by Mr. Egan himself.
Bancroft, the associate receiver, is
general superintendent of the mountain
division of the Union Pacific. His
friends point to his clean and success
ful management of the Bio Grande
western road during his six years as
reoeiver and general superintendent;
fiiso to the various imorovsments made
aim on the Short Line, and thiuk
association with such an able man-
age as Egan.- oould not fail to brinir
iisfaotory results to every interest

Egan left for the East tonight,

Onwba, Jane 18. It was a foregone
oonclqtjliln that the Short Line & Utah
Norther would be placed ...under ...the.
control of a separate recejrer, the only
hope of the interests ant-fconistio to the
lAmericsn Loan & Trust Company be-
ig to secur--. a coreceiver who would

through its ' attorneys, has fought the
coreceivewhip idea from the beginning
and this, coupled with the interest fea
ture of the order, which is along the
lines outlined by the attorneys for the
first mortgage interests receivers of
the Union Pacific and Short Line, will
probably prove too much a load for the
receivers to carry. Should Ir. Egan
accept, it. wilT not affect the" forces at
Union Pacific headquarters to the ex
tent of more ' than thirty men, ud as
for our meohanical force they are re
do&jd to a minimum. It has been my
idea, however, all the way through
that if the two receivers were accredit
ed to the property and the contentions
of attorneys for the first mortgage 'and
the other interests followed, that the
successor receiver could not oonsistent-
ly take the property. Mr. Egan will
now operate the properties in the eighth
and ninth cir Aits, but I can scarcely
believe this, Tor Ogden is the key to
the situation, and it would leave Mr.
Egan the ends of the line to operate,
while the great middle would be oper
ated by the present receiver, for I take
It that Mr. .Bancroft would refuse to
take the road if bis associate should
object to the order. "
There was much satisfaction ex
pressed about headquarters when the
terms of the order became known, for
the majority of the heads of the de
partments felt that Egan would not
take the fchort Line, loaded down with
non-paying divisions, as iu the case of
the Utah Southern and Utah Southern

. San Jose, June 12. The Santa Clara
county fruit exchange is in possession
of advices annoucing that the French
crop of prunes will be reduced fully- a
third from the amount proudced last
year. This means in the neighborhood
of 20,000,000 pounds less of that pro

peaches from 25 to 40 per cent, and

of New York and in Michigan small

The season is too early for the
formation of reliable opinion regarding
the apple crop. These reports are of
great consequence to the fruitgrowers
of this valley, Snd mean that .good
prices will prevail for all that is
grown, not alone in this valley, but
throughout the state. From the var
ious prune-growing sections of Califor

good average one. Other fruits do not
show material decrease, and on the

Washington, Jnne 11. Secretary of
State Olncy is expected to take the oath
fof office tomorrow. There will be no
undue baste, however on the part of
the new chief of the state department
Mr. Olney baa given much close study
to the larger law questions before his
department and it will take some time
for bim to put the work aside and for
the new attorney -general to grows into
it Mr. Olney, moreover, is equipped
in advance for the duties of his new
office, as he has been consulted con
stantly during the last year on the
various complications over Venezuela,
Nicaragua, Behring sea, the Waller
case, foreign tariff retaliation, Jthe Japanese-Chinese
troubles, Spain 's oonflict
with Cuba, and the lesser questions Ju
which the United States baa been
brought in relation with the rest of the
The last year has been unusually
fruitful in foreign complications.
Some of these were closed by Mr.
Gresham, pr advanced to such a state
that they V ill not require much further
attention. Among these were the Brit-
ittih-Nicaraguan incident, ,in which the
uuiinj otaves mueu vuwaxu seiue-
meci; the Japan-China treaty of peace,
t) which was effected as a result of the
Kwuiy luwrvenuon Dy cue uniroa
States, and the friction .with Hawaii
as the result of the demand for the re
call of Minister Thurston. The other
foreign questions which attracted ;nb-
Uo attention during Mr. GreshamV ad
ministration of the department are f ill
pending. With Great Britain uere
are two questions of importance to be
adjusted, those affecting Behring sea
and the Vennezuelan boundary. A
Behring sea conference will be held in
Washington in October next, Sir Julian
Paunoefote having effected the' prelim'
mary arrangements with Mr.' Gresham.
The purpose is to draft a new treaty by
which the claims of Canadian .senlers
for allegd seizures and losses will be
submitted to a commission. The con
ference will not take up the awe im-
portant question of readjusting the
Behring sea-regulations iV order to

The British-Venezuelan question is
mainly significant in involving the
Monroe doctrine. The United States
has asked Great Britain to arbitrate the
question. So far as is known fo defi
nite answer has been made to Ambassa
dor Bayard, who presented the request
of this country. The British foreign
office has positively declined to oonsider
similar requests by Pope Loo and by
the International Arbitration Associa
tion, and it is not doubted that in duo
time a declination will come to the
United States. It will then remain for
the state department to determine to
what extent British aggression in Ven
ezuela is compatible with the Monroe
doctrine. Mr. Gresham bad made a
special study of the subject, regarding
it as of more importance than any of
the foreign questions under considera
tion. Mr. Ulney was called into con
ference, and for several weeks prior
to his selection for the secretary of state
Ire was bnsy investigating this compli
cated question. It is probable that a
definite issue will be reached when
Ambassador Bayard sends Britain's
answer. , . j
With France the only question of
oonseqnence pending is as to the im
prisonment of ex-Consul-Genersl Wal
ler. Ambassador Enstis has been in
structed to make inquiries with a view
of securing for Waller all the rights of
an American citizen abroad, including
a trial by a civil court
Germany, Austria and Denmark are
having numerous tariff complications
with the United States which threaten
ed at one time to' bring about radical
retaliation by this country. The read
justment haa proceeded largely through
the state department Germany and
Denmark continue their exclusion of
American meats, but there are pros
pects that a satisfactory settlement
will be effected. The discriminating
duties levied sgainst the beet sugar of
Germany and Austria brought on the
conflict and Denmark followed the lead
of her influential neighbors.
The Cuban revolution promises to be
a source of controversy with Spain.
Minister Dupny de Lome haa already
asked the state department to appre
hend those sending arms to Cuba, and
the suggestion is msde that Spain will
make a claim against the United States
based on the precedent of the Alabama
claims. Officials are not solicitous.
however, as to this claim, and the inti
mation is made that it is inspired by
British sources -out of resentment for
the Alabama decision.

Cleveland haa annonuoed the following

a rearrangement of several portfolios,
and in this oousjojion consideration
waa given to the transfer 01 secretary

that the simplest plan would be merely
to fill the vacancy caused by Mr. Ol

---The appointment of Judge Judsou
Harmon, of Cincinnati, as attorney
general, came in the nature of a sur
prise. His name had not even been
canvassed as among the probabilities.
There is the best anthority f ir 'the
statement that the president had sev
eral names nnder consideration, and
that the portfolio of justice might have
been had by James C. Carter, of New
York, and by Frederick R. Coudert, of
New York, had- they been disposed to
Secretary Carlisle knows Judge Har
mon personally, and vadmires and re
spects his ability. It was he, probably,
who first presented his name to Presi
dent Cleveland. Ex-Governor Camp
bell, of Ohio, a close friend of Judge
Harmon, also warmly supported him,
and tbe president also secured from ex
Governor Hoadley, of Ohio, who is
now living in New York, and whose
law partner Mr. Harmon was, most
favorable reports as to his ability and
standing. After eanvii.ssiug the situa
tion thoroughly, tiio president offered
the portfolio to Judge Harmon by wire
this afternoon, 'and immediately upon
receiving a favorable reply annonuoed
the appointments. -

Revolutionists in This Coun
try Ready to Act,
To Start From a I'oint South of Charles
ton nnd to Be Complete In
Kvery Fnrtlcnlnr.
Fernandina, FU., June 8. The mas
ter stroke of the Cuban revolutionary
movement in this country will occur
within three days. The principal lead
ers of the party in the . United StaU-s '
gathered at Jacksonville two days sgo,
but yesterday quietly slipped over here
aud took carriages and went to Ocean
Beach, whore they stepped at the
Strathmore hotel. From an adjoining
room a correspondent overheard the
whole of the deliberations, which begau '
at 8 P- M and lasted until a late hour.
As appeared frpin the conversation,
most of the expeditions hitherto have
gone from San Domingo, but tlio next
bold move must be from ( the United
States south of Charleston. A fleet ot
light-draught vessels oould get unno
ticed through Bahama channel, and
then at night make short runs for the
northern coast of Cuba, where there
are many bays easy of aooess for an ex
pedition, and poorly guarded. Thu
plans of the insurrectionists, so far as
completed, are as follows:
"That as all plans tor the carrying
on of the insurrection in Cuba have
heretofore worked most satisfactorily,
the western half being ripe for rebel
lion, the nonsuiting board has decided
that the expedition should be madu
ready at onoe; that it should sail from
a point be w teen Brunswick, Ga., and
Mayport, Fla.; that it should be com
manded by Colonel Enrique Collao, the
war-scarred veteran of 1868-78, and
that the fleet should be guarded by
throe newly-built torpedo boats of tho
latest pattern, of great speod and man
ned by experienced seamen.' Lieuten
ant Tomas Collao ia to bo the staff offi
cer, and Colonel Collao's small army
is to be recruited from tho " Cubans in "
the United States and picked Ameri
cans from the Southern states. Men
already collected by Henry Brooks,
whols now in Now York city, aud who
is to accompany the expedition as a
member of Colloa's staff, are also to bo
enrolled. Colloa ia to land the expedi
tion at some point in the province of
Puerto Principe, where forces collected
by Gomes and Marti will oryiparaUu
The expedition ia to laud in Cuba with
in thirty days."
In sddition to this plan of operation,
general infomation was given during
the deliberations- The province of Pi
nas del Orras has risen, and the insur
gents have made more progress in tho
present" rising of three months' dura
tion than was made in the seven years
commencing in 18U8. It is believed
that yithin a month the whole island
will be in arms for the Cubans, and
that Captain-Oeueral Campos is exert
ing every effort to be recalled to Mad
rid before the arrival of the disaster,
which he believes is sure to overwhelm
the Spanish armies in Cuba very soon.
It was stated moreover, that Jose Marti
would be in Florida within the next
ten days.
More of I'nnl echulae.
Tacoma, June 7. J. O. Armour and
P. D. Armour, jr., of Chicago, filed to

leging that the late Paul Schulze ,
fraudulently and oollusively conspired
with the Northwest Thomson-Houston
Electrio Company to transfer to it

ceiving full consideration; that for $1,
250,000 bonds of face value and a large
block of stock, the street railwsy com
pany received in money and property
only $800,000. They claim that
