Conclusion of n Coloi-ailo Ijltlntloti
Involvlnc Millions.
DKNVIJI , Dee1 , 'it. The most important
mining litigation over tried In Colorado was
concluded In ( no United Stairs ehcult court
hero today. Millions ot dollars devolved
on the rebiilt of the trial and the precedent
set , which involves the title to ncailv. the
hundred mining chlms In the vicinity of
Aspen , PitUn county , Colorado. The ques
tion nt Issue was whethei the Aspen mines
contained ii sure\elns ( or deposits of ore If
the lissiire theory weic coirect , then the
owners' claims on the apex. 01 vvheio the out
cropplngs am visible on the surface , had n
right mulct United Slates statute to follow
Iho dip vein into other claims. Hut if the
elcpo-dt theory was maintained then the vast
numbei of mines on the side of Aspen
mountain could \n \ operated bv theii owneis
as far as the tioundaiies of theli claims. 'Ihe
present suit was drought b > 1) . M Hvman.ot
Cincinnati , against. ) . H. Wheeler , ot New
Yoik City , and other cipllaltsK Hjmaii
owns the Duiant mine , an ipox claim , and
Wheelci nnd Irlcnds oun the I'nnna mine ,
which lies Immediately beneath the
Dttrant , on the sldo of Aspen
mountilns , Dnrnnt is the older loca
tion , but rich ore was Hist struck
in the Kmma. About worth of
ore had been taken out ol the Iliiima when
tlio Durant people bronchi suit to nxain jios-
sebslon ot the laiima on the apex theoiy anel
the courts enjoined the Kmma fiom fiuther
operations. The ease lias been on trial tlneo
weeks , the best known mining experts In the
west being about equally divided on each
bide. To-night tlie jurv brought in a veidlct
In favor of the Duraiit mine. The Aspen
mine , tlio ilchcst In the camp , lies imme
diately beneath the Emma , and suit Is now
printing to obtain possession of it b ) tlio
Ihirant people1. Two million dollars had
been taken liom the Asiien mine and as
much more In sight when the work on It was
onjoineel. The other ano\ owners have been
awaiting the result of this trial and will now
bring suit to recover possession of those
mining claims Ivlng on the mountain sldo
below them , 'llils Is the tlrst case tried in
Colorado involving the apex theory since the
Leadvillo litigation was begun Inthec.uly
hlbtoryof ttiat camp , and which was settled
about ttirco months ago in the supreme eourt
of the United States against tlio apex theory.
In the Leadvllle cases tlio hanging wall was
claimed to bo porphcry and the foot wall
limestone. In the Aspen case it Is claimed
tbat the hanging wall Is of calcltc and the
loot wall doloiuitlc limestone ,

Hmoklynltes accustomed to USQ the horse
cars of the Hmoklii City rallioad company
vv ore compelled to w allc to day. The coin-
pan ) controls eleven lines ot btri'ot oais , all
of which are Heel up. The men claim the
company has failed to carry out
tlio agreement made with the men lasl March
In lozaul to the horns of work.
One of the causes of the trouble was the tact
that the coinpanv would not rocognl/o the
Knights of Labor nor the Kmplro 1'rotoetive
association in Its negotiations with the men.
At hei'clock about ado/en ears vvcro stalled
under protection of the police. On Last New
Yoik avenue one car was attacked by live
strikers and Iho police piomptly nue'sted
them nnd thus prevented iuithcr double.
The Brooklyn merchants say they will
lobe thousands of dollars b ) Ihe sti Ike com

were called upon1 to protect n ear which the
IJrookIii City railway company wished to

aboard. It only vv ent ono block vv hen it w ns
compelled to letiirn , a mob hnv Ing taken the
borbcs otr. The police wore unable to resist
the men. A car at Her ey street nnd
Toiiipklns avenue was overturned and the
driver and eondnetoi assaulted by a mob.
The police attempted to inteifeio , but wcio
ovei powered and the icseives vvero called
upon to aid thorn. The car was hoisted liom
tlie track nt Fulton and Now A ork avenue ,
and the police vvero called them also. The
driver nnd conductor were assaulted. Ob-
Htructlous have been placed on the tiacks
and it looks as though them would be e\on
more set ions trouble if the eompaii ) persists
in trying to inn cms.
'I lie btiikoot the employes of the HrooMyn

fuses to give any Infoimatlon as to the teuns

The fust ear left the Greenwood depot of

when qucbtlone-d claimed the company had
conceded all demands. Picsulent Lewis m-
