WASHINGTON , Feb. 15. After daily session
for the last two weeks , the fisheries connnl
slonors at 7 o'clock to-night completed the
labors and signed a treaty , which , it is bi
llovcd , will result in tha satisfactory sottl
mcnt of the disputes that have twisted ft
almost a century between this govoriimct
and Great Britain over the north Atlant
fisheries. The treaty is signed by all s'l
ot the commissioners and is said to huvcthc
full concurrence. Before the treat
can talto effect It must have tli
ratification of the queen of Ore ;
Britain , the Dominion of Canada nnd tl
province of New Foundland , us well as tl
Bimatt ) of the United States. Although tli
treaty will not bo made public , it can t
Btutoct that It relates exclusively to dispute
concerning the fisheries of the north Atlunt
coast and iloes not include any provislor
concerning the Behring sea trouble or con
uicrcial reciprocity. The treaty , it may ah
be added , docs not contemplate the ndml
elan of fish into the United States free i

ho could not , because of h

had been onobf long standing and had coil
to him by Itthcritahcc when ho assumed tl

his best endeavors to reach n BiUlsfuctoi

Tlio Reading I'rcHldent's Version c
" " "tHo Great Strlkfe.
P iiMnr.t.niiA ( Feb. 15. rho coogrcsslon ;
commlttcq.Invcstlgaffrig.flto JJcadlng strlli
to-dijy cxiuiimc'd'Austln Corbln. Mr. Corbl
xdmlttcd that the Reading rcrad was engage
in lntcr-statc commcrcc.ahd that the Rcai
ing railroad company owned'all the stock o
the Jtcadjng .Coal nHd 'lorl cpmpany. _ H
gave n history df the present strike and 0 :
[ ilahied thn ItuS domlihny was bound , ns
common carrier , to accept and move tl
freight offercd nnd conld not keep men In li
employ who refused ; to mo\
such freight. Corbl'n read a Ion
statement regarding the nature of mln in
operations' to provo that cpal was really
manufactured product nnd the expenses n
tending Its production very much Increase
of late years. Ho quoted flgifres to she
.hat the Reading Coal and Iron company hn
received since 1831 , on an , average , but I
cents n ton for Its coal. In answer to th
question , was there not nn agreement wit
ihetn that the men should bo discharged ui
ess the matter was submitted to arbltrntloi
Corbln believed there was some such agre
mcnt , but it was never intendc
: o cover such1 a' case ns the rcfus :
of mon , to handle goods mcrel
because the maker of the goods wi
objectionable to the Knights of Labor. Corbl
did not believe the statement that Supcrli
tcndent 'Swcigard had agreed to take tli
men back and submit the question to arbltr ;
Lion. There never was any Intention to art
trnto this matter on his part.
Proceeding to the question of the miner
strike , Corbln said they had no reason or dl
position to complain , and would not hav
struck but for the pressure brought upo
them by the Philadelphia Knights i
Labor. Ho denied that there Iu
been any private agreement with the mine
which was not In their written contract ;
the effect that if the Lehigh strike went on tl
8 per cent advance would bo paid. The cor
pany had refused to pay thin advance afti
January t and the miners had refused 1
work. .Cochin added : "We are and ha\
been willing to take up the question of r
nujustmont of wages if the men will rctui
to work , but will not treat with them whi
they are striking. Wo will mnl
the basis as high as any ottn
company , but wo can't maku
higher and compete with them. Andanotln
thing , wo can fill the places of the striklr
miners in ten days if the new men can 1
protected. Up in the mining districts b
men with clubs nnd pistols are violent
keeping not only other men but boys wl
desire to earn a living and keep fiomstar
ing , away from the mines and breaker
Wo don't care whether tlio men belor
to labor organizations or not. We w
put to work all men who apply
our collcries and ask no question
but if there is no moro co
mined from thqpSchuylkill region until v
arc compelled to mine It by discharging m <
who have come to us in our trouble ar
stood by us , to make way for strikers , i
moro shall bo mined while I have any i
ilueneo to prevent it. "
The witness pronounced the stories of tl
combination , of coal companies all over t )
country to keep up prices pure romance. :
reply to a question regarding the nssertii
that the railroad companieshave - mm
money ut the expense of the consumer and
the miner and laborer , Corbin said :
"Tho best answer I can make to that
that the Reading railroad company , with
paid capital of 40,000,000 , has been twice
bankrupt in twelve years.1' '
"Why do you keep on mining coal If y
have lost $13000,000 since 1878 ? " was askc
"I hardly know , myself.but think wo c ;
ultimately make money out of our cc
lauds. "
"Don't yoU think , it bad policy for yo
company to be in the mining business ? "
"Yes , sir , nnd I wish somebody would b
out the coal lands. Wo would bo better oil
but who will do it ? Wo have them and rut
do the bcbt wo can with them. "

Among the colored attaches of the place 1 ;

his duties are to look after the pool tables
which are several in number and ore locatet
lengthwise in the north and south ends of thi

Illness and went to his homo , and by per

of playing pool. Joe at once recognized it
Ferguson an enemy of previous en

Lho two , and Ferguson , upon being cjoutct
from the house , delivered himself of tcrrllil
oaths of vengeance , to which little attcntloi
was paid by the proprietors or habitues , wh
returned to their pool playing nm
the quaffing of lager. It was at this point o
the disturbance that Musician Heller plcadei
to Olson , the victim , to go homo , but th
latter said that ho had to see a'frjcud-ln th
south end of the saloon and startcd'ln tha

Ten minutes after Ferguson's electloi

devotees of cards were enjoying "high nvo' '
and the proprietors and beer sllngers abou
the place were busy with customers , th
bacic door to the Dodge street entrance to th
place quietly opened and Ferguson sneakc
stealthily in. Unnoticed he walked scvcra

south and north sides of the saloon. Holme
at the time was standing on the verge of th

Olson , and suddenly looking up ho saw Fet

Jumped back , none too soon to cscapo th

" 1 was reaching oyorthebllllard table with
a cue when HolnKii Jtold mo I couldn't play ,
and Ed Thomas cnteatnnd took the cue nway
from me. Heforojiilould do-anything Joe
coimnonccd to pound rae with his lists and

how ho RiimshetJM my face. I didn't
say anything > , tst nil when he
was beating tne. Ho .was mad nt me because
1 wouldn't let hlni'havo fwme money a little
while back , and had.thrcntcjied to get oven
with mo some time. I have given him money
when ho was hungryrnud this is the way he
has paid mo back , rite is nn older fellow
than I am and weighs n grant deal moro than
I do. I nm only flfteim years old and wclgli
only 180 pounds. I klunH believe In flphtlnc
and will run nway from a fellow before 1
will light. Joe kicked mo all over the room
and I didn't like it. I went out to my room
nnd got my revolver. It was a US-calibre gun ,
with n lonir barrel. I-onino Into the saloon ,
nnd when I saw Joe I pulled-out the revolver ,
nnd without 'aiming shot U off. 1 did not
shoot high , as shoot him in the
legs and get even with him. I saw I did no !
shoot him the first itimo and rnisct
my revolver to shoot again , when I BOM
the crowd run up to this fellowlhat was shot
I was scared then nnd ran up to itiy room. "
"You say the weapon was a thlrty-oighl
calibre revolver , but how Is it that the bullo
that killed Olson is a forty-four calibre rifle
ball ! " ' *
"Oh. yes , the revolver was n' forty-four

the real estate Ought to bo levied upon wa
purchased by the judgment debtor , defend
ant , but that ho procured the title to b
conveyed to his brother for the purposoof de
frnudlng his , creditors. Defendant answered
admitting that the title was held by hi
brother , who was in fact the owner of tin
property , but alleging that ho was the heac
of a'family , and that ho had occupied tin
premises as n homestead since long prior ti
the recovery of the Judgment by plnintiffan <
asking that In case the property should bi
held by the court ns belonging to him , thn
his homestead rights bo protected , the prop
crty not being Capable of fraudulent nlicna
tion or subject to execution. Upon motion o
plaintiff ha was compelled to elect upon whlc !
defense ho would stand. Hold , error , the dc
fcnso not being Inconsistent.
Voso vs Miller. Error from Ccdnr county
Reversed. Opinion by Cobb , J.
During the progress of the trial of the cas
iu the district court , while the court had nd
journed for dinner , the defendant took twi
certain members of the Jury in said caus
who w'cro engaged in trying tlio same int
a public liquor saloon nnd treated them to in
toxlcuting liquors , which was then nnd ther
drank by said Jurors. . Held , that the verdlc
bo set aside and a now trial granted.
U. P. Uy. Co. vs. Blum. Error from Douglai
county. Affirmed. Opinion by Maxwell , J
In the action against a railway company t
recover damages for the loss of a cow killei
by its engine , the defense was that the cov
was killed on the public road , and withou
willingness on the part of the company. Th
engineer testified that the engine struck th
cow on the crossing of a public road over th
railway , and carried or threw her- thirty o
forty feet , but there were no marks on th
ground indicating that the cow had bee :
struck at that point. The distance from tin
road crossing to the cattle guard was forty
, three feet , and from that point to a phic
where there were murks on the railway trac ]
tending to show that the cow hai
been struck , was forty-flvo feet
the cow "being thrown from eight ti
twelve feet east and south of that point
Hold , first , That the evidence failed to shov
that the cow was killed on the road crossing
second , That a clear preponderance of tin
evidence showed the railway fence to be in i
defective and imperfect condition , nnd tha
the cow was killed within the right of way
Gallagher vs. Connoll. appeal from Douglai
county. Hoverscd. Opinion by Maxwell , J ,
1. The plea of "not guilty" in an action o
forcible entry and detainer , requires tin
plaintiff to prove every fact necessary to en
title him to recover.
2. The building of a few rods ot fence , thi
cultivation of u few brush or plowinf
of a few furrows of land , will no
constitute such acts of possession as to en
able n party to maintain forcible entry am
.detainer against a tenant who has been ii
pbsstsslon for1 motto thafi ono year Under i
written Idaso from one who claimed ad
vCrsely to the plaintiff.
3. While a justice of the peace cannot determine
termino questions of title , yet ho may rcceivi
deeds in connection with other evidence , ii
order to show the right of either party to thi
possession of the premises.
4. A lessee or sub-lessee cannot , by sur
rendering his possession to an adverse party
deprive his landlord of his right to the posses
sion of the premises. Estabrook vs Hatcroth
23 Neb. , 281 ; S. C. 34 N. W. Hep. , 034.
Shortcl vs Young. Appeal from Burt counf y
Kcvcrsed and cause dismissed at plaintiff' :
costs. Opinion by Maxwell , J.
' 1. Where a wife purchased a tract of lane
for the sura , of $2,000 nnd made a paymon' '
thereon of $200. which was obtained from i
married son who testified that ho raised thi
money from the sale of hogs nnd wheat f rou
his own farm , the court will not infer fraui
in the transaction from the fact that a yea ;
previous the husband and father had sold t <
the sou certain personal property , includinf
nogs , particularly where n creditor living ii
the same county treated such sale as valid b'
attacking it.
2. Held , that the testimony failed to shov
fraud in the transfer of the property from thi
father to the son.
a. A married woman may carry on businosi
nnd make contracts In the same manner as i
she were unmarried.
4. An insolvent debtor may emancipate hli
minor children nnd relinquish all claims t <
their earnings , and a creditor will have ni
claim to the proceeds of their labor.

Boars Hammer Wheat Prices With !
Oi'oat Success.
Tito Corn Session Characterised lijr
Heavy Voliimo of Trading-
Nothing New In Provls-
lens Quotations.
Ciucvno , Feb. 15. [ Special Telegram to' '
the Br.u. ] After two days of bull news with
out any response in this wheat market the
bulls seemed to loses courage , and this was *
their dny for letting go of their load. This
bamo failure to respond to good news was
full of encouragement to the boars .nnd Htoy
hammered the market wltn great success. ,
Selling orders seemed to-coma from every
where nnd local bears were helplntf th'o
break ns nittch as possible. 'Ne.\y York was a ,
heavy seller in this market ind' commission
houses whoso correspondents arc chleily-ln
the northwest were fieo sellers. In fact , fern >
n time it seemed as If the only buyers word
those who had already sold at higher1 prices'
and wcro now realizing their profit. The su | > -
posed critical point of bUo for May wlwat was
passed nnd o reached , nt which the break
from tlio opening amounted * to Jif(51K ( ° from
the highest price of yesterday. There seemed'
to be an expectation that at SOo there would
be largo quantities of wheat thrown over
on stop ordeis , but that expectation was
not realized. Some wheat did coma out , but
was much more than balanced by the orders
to buy nt that figure , and there was a fair
recovery before the close , with the feeling
that the immediate danger was over. May
wheat opened at SOJfo and sold up early to
bOJ @SOJ < c , then gradually dropped to SOphdJ
bOtfe , and hung between iO.c ! und SO&fo for
some time , then followed a dccllno to SOJs'C'5
80ca quick recovery to 80\'eand on the next
downward turn 7UX J was touched , followed
by a reaction to So ) c. and the t o'clock close
was at StifttS.Ot'c. ( ) ( Juno wheat opened at
81-Vc , sold down to SOKc and closed at t
o'clock at SOJ ( tSOJ e.
The corn trudo was of largo volume. Tup
danger point was reckoned to bo 50c for May
corn , and raiders pounded the market down
to that point , only to meet with disappoint
ment. On the way down plenty of long grain
hud come out , but at f > 0u there were moro
buyers than sellers nnd the slight break below -
low that point was caused solely by short
sellers. The receipts were less than the
estimate , but the bear argument of cut freight
rates and expected heavy arrivals of com
was still In full force and was used for nil it
was worth1 May corn opened nt ftOKc and
sold down to 50c , reacted to 50' c and then ,
touched I'ljfc , but again advanced to 50) c ,
where the price stood at the 1 o'clock close.
Juno corn opened nt 50 ; e , sold down to 49 0
and closed at I o'clock with fiOVCo asked.
Oats shared in the general depression , but
the extent of the break was less , the extreme
fluctuations In this market being about kfo.
There was fairly active trading for this grain ,
but no special feature , Huctuations being
governed by those In other grains. May oats
opened nt 31 # e , declined later to 30Jfc nud
closed at 1 o'clock at 80Jf@ilc. ; For Jnno
oats 31Ke was asked at the opening and from
that point the prtco fell to Die , closing at 1
o'clock at 31@llVc. :
In provisions thcro wcro no unusual devel
opments. Barring a moderate shipping de
mand for lard , there was no life to speak of
in the cash trade and In a speculative way a
decent , quiet feeling was maintained. In all
departments of the market n slow condition
of affairs existed , and , all told , rather an
uninteresting dny was passed. Prices were
also easier In their tendency , nnd , based on'
last night's closing , pork nt 1 o'clock showed
a decline of 5@7 > tfo and lard and short ribs'

NEW Yoitrc , Feb. 15 , [ Special Telegram
to the BEK.I KIOCKS Stock brokers have
never scon n tlmo in years when they had1
less business than at present. ' Sales of less
than f > 0OuO , shares In n day amounts to
nothing compared with the business of a year
or two ago , when the Into D. P. Morgan , or
WocrUhoffcr frequently traded Iu that mini *
ber of shares in a day and" thought nothing ;
of it. The continued dullness is becoming
strainfnl to commission houses , nnd , a * usual
when trade peters out , they are beginning to
cast around for remedies. S6mc suggest that
commissions are too high ; llmt pdr cent
each way Is too mui-i money to pay. Others ,
however , urguo that rates arq low enough ,
considering the fact that brokers uro fro-t
quently called upon to Investigate ' n nilmbbr
of stocks or bonds for an Investor * Wlio'
probably wants only n small lot. Others
claim that thuro should be no established
rate of commissions and that every broker
should be allowed to make whnUjVcn rate
they can get. It was suggested by ethers
that ' 'tickers" should bo removed and no'
quotations Bent out regularly. This , they
claim , would shnt up bucket shops and ro-s
vert business to the ovcnunce. Should tho.
latter bo put into effect there would-bo los
business tliuu over , und trudo that goes into'
bucket shops would go to the consolidated In
stead of the big exchange , us the bucket
shop traders only want Hinall lots. The p V-
llo want news or they will not trade , and ,
should the quotations bo i-ut off they would
bo at sea. The market was the reverse Of
yeitqnlay. Trading , although at tjinps 'very
slow , icached a larger aggregate. 70,044
shares , against 41,830 shares yesterday
Traders who have been hammering the mur--
kct for hovcrul days and made little progress
changed tholr tactics nnd began buying for a
tlmo. The 'market Is ovoi sold and decidedly
sensitive , and the moderuto pnrehaHos by
shorts caused a sharp rally of MWf points ,
the close being firm at outside figures. Chi-
cogo , Burlington ( t Qulnoy showo.1 the larg
