New York special: It Is said that the
Standard Oil Trusts has In its treasury over
$26,000,000 ot undivided profits. When it is
known that this sum represents the accum
ulations of only about two years it will be
understood bow phenomenally large the
earnings of the companies are and why the
trust has always taken care to conceal from
tho public the tremendous profits of its
business. It is only about two years ago
that the capital of the trust companies was
increased from 70,000,090 to 900,000,030 by
the issuing of a stock dividend from the
accumulated earning, This was the second
time this method had been adopted to di
vide the earnings that would keep piling up
after the payment of the 12 per cent, annual
dividends which the Standard lias always
declared. As to tho disposal that is to be
made of the S2G,000,000 which has accumu
lated since the lait stock dividend, it has
been determined to distribute some of It in
cash among the holders of the trust certifi
cates, and to apportion the rest among the
companies in the way of Increasing their
capital. The amount to be paid to tho
holders "of 900.000 shares of stock will be at
least $15,000,000, it is said.

east, and after locating the parties went to
their home. The young lady said that the
man's name was Kostcr, that be was a farm
hand, and that be had taken her mother,

of them. The young lady declines to give

cide father and an orphan from infancy,
had not the least sympathy.

squabble will not down, but bobs up
eternally wliou you think that it has
entirely disappeared. Ex-Gov. Thayer
came in on tho late train, and was sur
prised to learn that tho case had been
called in the Supreme Court during his
absence, and that it had been dis
missed, lie was looking for a mandate
to be sent direct to tho Clerk of the
Court, and ho had no notice nor did any
of his attorneys. They sav that the
mandate had arrived, or that action
was going to bo immediately taken
He looks on the proceedings as snap

the Supremo Court to have the case re
opened, and if successful will file a re
ply to lloyd's answer. The issues will
then be joined fairly on tho question of
L'ovd's citizenship, aud the evidence
can be taken. Gov. Thayer said that
it was a question of principle with him,
and he would light it to a finish. The
decision of the Supremo Court of the
United States was on demurrer,and the
main question was not properly befoic
the court He thinks it would form a
bad precedent to allow the case to go
'own to history in such an unfinished
state. He is i.ot concerned about the
office and would not take it if it were
voluntarily tendered lo him, as his en
gagements would not permit, but he
says he is determined to give the courts
a chance to pass upon tiie real facts
in tho case before it shall be disposed of.
A I'ecidcd Case that Is Still Unde
cided. Gen. John M. Thayer has filed no
tice in the Supreme Court, through his
attorneys, that he will make an appli
cation to reopen tho Boyd-Thayer case,
which was dism'sscd recently owing to
the non-appearance of the counsel for
Gen. Thayer. Gen. Thayer stated lhat
the new step iu the great controversy
would make no change in his private
plaus. "The ca e has to be continued
in my rame," he replied, "and whi'c I
am as much interested in the final out
come of the proceedings as I ever was.
yet I shall not allow it to interfere with
my private business. I have absolutely
no desire to again assume the duties of
the Governorship, but I do want to see
the quest'ou wlfch is raised in this
case settled, and this is tho sole reason
or furthor contesting the matter."
The opinion seems to generally prevail
that tho Supremo Court will reopen the

Some twelve or fifteen additional filing
have been entered at the O'Neill Land

express the opinion that it will be a
good thing for the county, for the rea
son that a majority of the persons who

properly deveiop the country. Some
authorities do not believe that the til
ings wl.l hold good when they come be

in the Commissioners' report for lSiiu

A Winnebago Indian Outrages a 13-Ycar-Old
Thk first rape case in Thurston
County has been commenced against
Walter Prophet, an educated Winne
bago Indian, who is charged with as
saulting a 13-year-old squaw named
Hans-hay-mon-c-kaw, or Night-Walking-Woman.
The assault was commit
ted near the Winnebago Agency. It is
said that Prophet was under the influ
ence of liquor at the time. The girl
was badly choked and is very low.
Sheriff Mullin is after the culprit. It
has been customary for the Indians
heretofore to settle such cases by tho
woman or her parents taking a certain
amount of property from the offender,
but it was no use in this case.

Will Help Rojrd County.
The excitement attending the filing
of homestead entr.es on school land, or
what was supposed to be school land, in
oyd County, has entirely quieted down.
Some ten or fifteen filings were ent,ercd.
Several c t.uiis of Boyd County have
been in O'n-ill and they express tho
opinion that it will be a good thing for
the county lor the reason that the ma
jority of the persons who filed have
means and energy to properly develop
tho country. 9- V.- Keriaston, attorney,
of Spencer, dots not blicvex that the
filings will hold good when tfetfy como
before the Commissioner of the general
land office, but tho plain law as an
nounced in tho Commissioner's report
for 1890 appears to settle tho matter.
