The proposal by rectlllcrs of this clt.y to
build n distillery In opposition to the whisky
trust took inoro dollulto slmpo today. It is
understood tlmt the capital Is already sub
scribed nnd tlmt the now distillery will
probably bo called the Kcctlllers co-operntlvo
distilling company. A plant , It is said , largo
enough to supply the wants 01 the rectifiers ,
will cost but 9150,000. The question of get
ting .spirits pending the erection of the dis
tillery Is not bothering roctlllors , as they
claim the trust could not refuse to sell to
them If they paid cash.
It also seems that the local refiners nro not
alone In their determination to establish dis
tilleries in opposition to the whisky trust.
Pour of the leading wholesale liquor dealers
of Milwaukee tiavo formed a combine of
their own nnd perfected arrangements Tor a
distillery with n capacity of not less than
iiOCOO callous of whisky per month. The es
tablishment will bo built on the lulto shore
south of the city nnd will bo operated exclu
sively for the benefit of the members of the
now organization , ns nothing of the product
will be offered upon the market. It is
reckoned that the concern will bo above the
roach of trust Influence. At the same time
its promoters will bo protected
against ttio high prices which it is expected
the trust will inaugurate now that it has ob
tained control of Its only real competitor In
securing the Shufeldt distillery In Chicago.

INTKHIISTING 1.KCUI , POINT DECIDED.
By n decision handed down yesterday In
the state supreme court an Important point
concerning assignments of property by insolvent -
solvent debtors is settled. It directly affects
one "of the questions growing out of the
Llndaucr clothing house failure In Chicago.
In the fall of 188 $ Lindauor Brothers entered
confessions of Judgment in the circuit court
aggregating $200,000. Of those judgments
one was In fiver of Gcorgo Einstein ns
trustee for f'.kl.OOO. ' In the sumo way the
company's book accounts wore turned over
to Moses ft Newman ns trustees. The sheriff
took possession on the judgments and Now
York creditors holding claims of 1500,000
found themselves unsecured. These creditors
petitioned the county judge to decree that
the appointment of n trustee was equivalent
to an assignment uudtocompcl thuLlndnuers
and ttio judgment creditors to turn the prop
erty over for the benefit of all the creditors.
Jiulgo Prcndorgast appointed Frank Collier
assignee and the Llndauors tried to have the
county court s action sot aside and n receiver
appointed uy Judeos Tulloy and tlorton.
Tbov failed nnd the estate was at last sallied
out of court by the payment In full of the
contesting creditors' claims by allowing
other creditor * 40 per cent. In the monntlmo
the Vormllllon countv case bad arisen. The
county judge decided the Insolvent , Colin , by
declaring a trust In favor of certain creditors ,
had made uu assignment nnd under voluntary
assignment laws all preferences were pre
cluded. On an appeal to the circuit court the
county court decision was affirmed. But the
appellate court for the third district reversed
the lower court's decision. The supreme
court held by deciding the county courthad no
jurisdiction to declare an assignment. The
attorneys Interacted In the Llndauer case
submitted briefs on the tirol heiring.

In n lengthy opinion the chief justice says :
It Is sulllclent to say that for the purpose of
this cnso wo must regard the oBlco desig
nated as city treasurer as n county and not n
city ofllce. The treasurer , by whatever name
ho bi called , is n county oflleor , comprising
his functions Just ns the shurllT , recorder of
deeds and other count } * olllccrs exercise their
functions. The court holds that every ques
tion now presented was raised and decided in
the case of Tngirart vs Commonwealth , the
fact that , the ofllco of comptroller was con
tended for In that case making no difference ,
as the same law applies to each.
A dissenting opinion was filed by Justices
Williams and Mitchell , In which the princi
pal contention was that the olllco of county
treasurer was abolished by the act of consol
idation and the oftlco of city treasurer there
by created , and that therefore the council
has the power to fill the vncnnoy.

President Marsh sailed for Burb.idocs on the

clined. Ho said that whatever ho had done
had been atthu direct command of Mr. Lucas
and Mr. Marsh , and that ho had never
profited to the extent of ono penny by ttio
falsification of the books of the bank. Ho
was already under lurgo ball , which had boon
furnished by his friends , and ho did not con
template leaving his bondsmen In the lurch.
Ho had decided to face the music nnd give

very Interview and implored Marsh nnd Law
rence to go away until ho could "arrange"
matters. Bardsloy never appears to have
contemplated flight , but fully expected to

Drew afterwards withdrew this denial nnd
qualified It by saying ho had no recollection

still it was possible that General Wagner's

WASHIXOTO.V , Juno 12. A number of in
quiries have been received nt the state de
partment from philanthropic organizations
and individuals ns to tbo failure of the United
States government to signify its adhoicnco
to the Congo treaty , the final ratification of
which must bo exchanged before the end of
the month. This treaty Is an agreement to
suppress the slave trade nnrt the sale of
breech-loading llro arms nnd intoxicants in
the Congo district of Equatorial Africa , and
nearly nil of the great powers of the world
have joined in accepting its obligations.
The state department has replied to these
inquiries that the subject Is still under con
sideration by the United States senate in ex
ecutive session and the department does not
feel nt liberty to discuss the nuttor gener
ally , nut it is proper to say that as a result
of rcccut correspondence it is not Improbiiule
that the treaty will go into effect at the ap
pointed tlmo in respect of all the signatories
except the United States and that it will bo
loft open to this government to give its ud-
lieaion hereafter. L'lio department has been
working to this end , and the senate , having
failed to take definite action , that was all
that could bo done pending further action
by the senate.
This treaty was negotiated at Brussels and
a representative of the Utdted States govern
ment assisted in its preparation. It was laid
before the scnatn toward the clcwo of thu last
congress lor approval and attention called to
the necessity tor speedy action. After a long
debate In executive session the treaty was
rejected , but us a motion to reconsider was
entered the matter is still ponding. Tbo vote
upon the acceptance of the treaty was close
nnd its opponents take their stand upon the
several propositions. Ono was that the ap
proval of the treaty by the United States
would carry with it a recognition of certain
French claims to n largo part of
Liberia , which recent events show
are now being actively and forcibly
pushed , and ns that count 1-3- is
regarded us ono of our wards wo could not
permit such aggression. H was also urged
that the United States could not consistently
with its holding to the Monroe doctrine un-
dcrtako to Join In n plan of dictation respect
ing the affairs of another continent , and still
another reason put forward in opposition to
the treaty was the contention that It would
bo unwise for the United States to glvo rec
ognition to the present rather broad and In
some cases doubtful claims of European na
tions to the best nortlons of Africa which
are tacitly recognised by the treaty. All of
these urBiimonts wore used by thu opposition
hucccstifullv to defeat the treaty , but as the
motion to reconsider It Is still pending the
department of slate regards it as u duty to
still save a place lor the United Status among
