WASHINGTON' , April 7. | Special Telegram
o Tin : Unn. ] Thcro is a hitch in the Interior
department ovnr the new land law rules.
Officials of the department nro unable to
roach on agreement over certain important
provisions in the new law for this reason. It
s likely that the new rules will not be made
public for several days , but from an tnsldo
wmrco it is learned today that the important
points in controversy nro u * follows :
1. Shall tbo department now take notice of
any contest pending in the ircncral land office
which wns tiled in a local ofllco tnoro than
two years after llnal proof was mndo ou the
2. "What , disposition shall bo made of the
Intervening right acquired by a person who
llled on liiud utter the cancellation of entries ,
which wore so cancelled without uotlco to
the purchaser or the mortgagee !
Those familiar with land ofllco affairs can
readily see that tbu decision upon these two
questions Is of vital Importance to settlers ,
mortgagees and the government. Under the
now law ills provided that regardless of the
compliance by the original cntrymnn with
tno law , final proof wns accepted and tbo
land passed by mortgage or deed to ft third
party , the Integrity of the title cannot DO ques
tioned. Mortgagees and purchasers uro now In
good fnith making .applications to reinstate
'entries ' cancelled before 'March 3 , but on
some lands filings \vcro made with other
parties between the cancellation of the first
entry and the passage of the now law. All
this brings up another Important point , viz :
What shall bo done with these intervening
filings ! This is one point that is giving the
department ofllcials a great deal of worry.
Registrations xinder the now town site law
uro also being held up until tbo decision of
the sunrctno court , rendered yesterday in the

During the period of Unrnum's Itivallalsm
nnd c-onllncment to the bouse , which began
twonty-ono weeks ago last Friday , tliero
have been frequent fluctuations hi his con ill-
lion , from each of which ho rallied , although
In each Instance with a slightly lowered vl
tullty. The chiiiigo for the worse , which oc
curreulast nljiht , was so pronounced that It
convinced tbo physicians that the p.itlout
had not many moro hours to live. During
hli coiillnemcnt ho has been down italra
only twice , although sitting up much
of the tlmo nnd being cheerful
nnd conversationally Inclined in Us waking
moments. After the attack which 0:11110 : on
him shortly before midnight , Imrnum suf
fered a good deal of pain. He .suemed to
renlizo that ho could not live much longer
nnd spolto of his approaching end with raini
ness. During his illness the physicians have
been careful about administering niorphino
or sedatives , throiiL'b fear that they might
produce ulterior ill-efTect-s. Last night Unr-
nuin spoke of this nnd said that when all
hope was gone he wished to bo given seda
tives ' which would nlluy the pain and nmiio
death as poaruful as possible.
Tbo llrst sedative was given nt 10:10 : this
morning. It was understood bv the patient
and bis family to mean that thu end was
near.Mrs. . Hnrnnm remained nt her husband's
side throughout the n'ght. ' In alternate spoils
of dozing and in conversation , which showed
his brain to bo as clear us over , Imrnum
passed the hours until o'clock this morning ,
when ho smile into lethargy , which was a
condition of stu'nor rather than of natural
sleep. To reuse him Irom this unconsciousness -
ness was diflicult.
Plilnens Taylor llnrmun was born In
Ilethel , Conn. , July f > . ISIO. of good old New
Knclnnd stock. Ho lived the hard , ! rugged ,
healthful , aspiring life of a boy on tbo farm ,
and ' came out of a clean , self-respectful pov *
crty ' to face the problems of life with u keen
clear bend and a sound body.
At the ago of fifteen ho wont to work in
his uncle's grocery store In IJrooulyii , N. Y.
where ho wns soon entrusted with responsi
bility. The story of his life , from this tlmo
forward , Is one long story of money-making.
His Jlrst business venture on his own
account wns In bis nntlvo town
of IJolhel , to which ho was Induced to return
by bis grandfather , in whoso carriage house
ho cot up abinnll store. It was a success.
His next venture was ns nn editor in Duu-

suit speedily ou bis hands nnd bo sent to jail
pending his trial. lie was vindicated by
the jury and issued forth fron )

escorted by a brass band nnd treated to n
ride In open carriages , drawn by six horses.

when it suddenly dawned-unoh him ttiavho
wns cut out for the great , American show
man. Ha had a fondness for popular ml-
plnuso ho bad It down to the last day of his
life and thought ho possessed the instinct of
divining what the public wanted nnd arousrr
ing a furore of interest In what ho had to
His llrst venture In this line was Jolco
Ilcth , "a negress 101 years old nnd once the
nurse of Ucorgo Washington. " Hccomlng
convinced this curiosity ought to be nuiuo to
pay , ho bought the old slave for § 1,000. Foe
about a year ho oxhlbltcdhor In Philadelphia ,
Now Vork , Uoston and many smaller cities ,
and bo successful were bis advertising meth
ods that ho mndo a great deal of money out
of her. There wns much doubt expressed at
tbo tlmo as to whether Jolco
Until was what sbo pretended
to be. In his later yours Mr. Itarnuin became
soinowliut skeptical hhnsolf , but the doubt
did not worry him whllo sno wns coining
money for him. Jolco Ileth was the begin
ning of u long aonos of shows which made
Barmim rich and famous. His second attrac
tion was "Signer Viualln , " an Itnllan acrobat
and mnglcmn. Ho paid well , too.

seller for a circus owned by one Turner , his
pay beluga percentage of the receipts. At
that time and place his engagement expired
and , having Sl00 to bis credit ho bought n
part of the show and started out , for himself.
At the cud of the season he had ? lr ! > UO ,
with which bo returned to New
York. For the next flvo years
ho passed through various vicissitudes in the
show huslncsn , sometimes making nnd some
times losing , and moro than once being re
duced to the necessity of pawning his watch ,
It was not until near thu close of 18-11 that ho
began the career which rapidly brought him
Into national reputation and gavu him his
Jlrst taste of rtnl wealth.
At a time when his fortunes were nt tholr
lowest ebb Itanium purchased Souddor's
American museum. llo bought It only with
his promise to work hard , live economically
nnd pay for it out of tlio profits nf thocon-
corn mid made oven this bargain in tlio face
of competitors with money. From Unit mo
ment ho began to blossom forth into the
greatest caterer to the amusement loving
public of modern times.
In IS 111 ho engaged Jenny Llnd to sing In
America und paid her ! 1,000 per night for IfX )

reverses of fortune , but displayed remnrka-
