Some time bark Colonel J. J. Steadmnn ,
clerk of the United States circuit court , re
ceived n letter of Inquiry from Peyton
Boyle , managing editor of the West Pub
lishing company , Washington , I ) . C. , making
Inquiries In regard to a decision ot Judge
Woolson's , reported In the Chicago Legal
News. In this article the course adopted by
Judge Woolson was described as novel , but
effective. The nrtlclc continued :
The net provides that no petition for Invol
untary bankruptcy should bo filed within
four months from the passage thereof. The
act was passed July 1 , so no proceedings for
Involuntary bankruptcy in the regular way
can be commenced before November 1. It is
clear , however , that from the first day of
i July the relations of debtor nnd creditor ,
| nnd of ono creditor to all other creditors , ore
governed by the law passed of that date. A
debtor In falling circumstances Is forbidden
to prefer ono creditor to the prejudice of the
others , cither by mortgage , bill of sale or
other transfer of his property.
The case to which Ihe nrtlclo quoted re
ferred was ono from Ottumwa , wlwro a
debtor In falling circumstances executed n
clmttc-1 mnrtgagf to his fntl'T July -0. ISiis.
covering his entire asset ? . The father took
possession n. . was about to dlspo s ?
of the mortgaged property. Meltuer
father nor HOII had any other prop
erty subject to execution. Ottuimvn jobbers
and outildo creditors began a proceeding In
the United States court and asked an In
junction to pievent the disposition of this
property and the appointment of a receiver
to hold the ranio until November 1 , nt
which timenrocccdlngs In bankruptcy would
bo comments' ! In the regular way.
Juilprc AVonlNnu'n Slnlc-inciit.
Colonel Stcadman referred the letter nnd
article to Judge Woolson , who sent the
following reply yesterday to him :
The substance of the case presented to me
1 In correctly stated , but I dcclln-d to IFSIH ;
the preliminary writ as prayed. I found nc
authority In the bankruptcy statute lor sucli
writ at the present time. Counsel concet-eil
the debt claimed by the father was buna
Ado. No nttnck was made on either mort
gage or bill of sale to the father , as with
out consideration or void , as fraudulent
madi ) under the familiar general principles
applicable. Tha sole ground of attack was
that these were , under the bankruptcy law-
unlawful preferences to the father us cm <
of the son's creditors ; and that , as the bank
ruptcy statute , by Its very terms , was ex
pressly "In full force nnd effect , " then ; act !
of the son were , under this statute , unlawfu
and .voidnbln now. This unlawful charnctc-i
of the sale was a present matter. True , 1
was argued , no petition in Involuntary bank
ruptcy can bo filed until November ; bu
thnt only applies to the remedy when sough
through bankruptcy. When such petition I :
( lied nnd these acts stated us the ground !
for the adjudication of bankruptcy , i ucl
Judgment must bo entered nnd tlieso acts de
clarud unlawful nnd set aside.
llonco it was said , "Equity will not quletl ;
sit by and see the property dissipated b :
acts now unlawful under this statute nov
In full force , " and which acts will hereattu
bo set aside and annulled , when present la-
activity on the part of equity wouM be ti
knowingly permit the properu- be dlssi
patcd nnd nothing bo left for the creditor ;
when the time arrives within Which they ma ;
apply the remedy ia bankruptcy. There Is i
wrong hero , Jor the correction of which o
thfl staying of Its complete operntion wi
must look to equity.
A mil mi-lit l-'ull of I'lirco.
I could not deny that this line of crgu
ment possessed much force ; but the act :
of which they complnined were , except fo
the bankruptcy statute , lawful and vulia
So far as gi-n.'ral principles nro conccrnei

general principles , the right to prefer hli

does not make that unlawful under these
general principle * , hut unlawful under the
( revision * of the ntnltlU * . Congress might
Imvo authorized courts of equity to net ns
requested. Congress did not BO authorize ;
ot len t by nny express provision of the
statute. Hut congress did expressly ptny nc-
tlon under the stntute until November. The
argument presented might well be presented
to congress. Hnd It l > oen presented before
the paasngo of tills stntute popalbly the
stntuto might have covered the points pro-
pented. Thn courts may not thus attempt to
supply what Is claimed ns nn omission on
the part of congress. The duty Is on the
court to apply the statute ns It Etnnds.
Since , then , under the general equitable
principles , the nets complained of ore not
unlawful , and alnco this stntute does not
confer the power on the court now to act
ns herein sought , I announced that I saw nc
right In the court to ordsr the writ of In
junction. Hut , as the point was a new one
ns counsel urging It were nppnrcntly sincere
In the belief that the point they were urglnp
was sound , I stated thnt I would not ordci
the writ ex parte , I would set n day foi
hearing the application ( which I declined tc
grant ex pnrte ) nnd would meanwhile Issue
a restraining order , which would not seri
ously nfl'ect the father or the son. Thi
father was selling the goods nt retail nt th <
country store whcro the son hnd done busi
ness nnd hnd placed the notes , accounts
etc. , In the hands of attorneys for collection
I therefore Issued a restraining order , re
straining the father from Incumberlng tht
goods , or selling or disposing of them othei
than In the usunl course of retail as gener
ally pursued In such stores , nnd restrnlnlnf
the father nnd attorneys from selling or col
lecting notes , nccount * . etc. , except ns tin
procecdu were deposited In a dcslgnntct
bank , until nppllcntlon should be henrd
This did not Interfere with the usual coursi
of business , etc. , but preserved the nsseti
during the very brief period until nppllcattoi
could bo henrd with both parties repro
Bcnted. Hut I advised counsel applying fo ;
writ that , unless my mind was brought ti
n different conclusion , the application wouli
bo refused , nnd thnt I now granted time enl ;
because of the numerous other points , Hi
Importance as n precedent In this district
and becnupo thus I could tnko time for it
mature consideration and meanwhile preserve
serve matters In stain quo without dctrlmen
to cither party to the action. Upon servlci
of notice of time of hearing un nmlcnble nr
rangement was had , as I am Informed
whereby the conveyance to the father wa
to hiivo the effect of an assignment for th
benefit of the creditors generally , and th' '
matter did not again come before mo.

Dr. Mcdberry , n druggist , was robbed of
J460 In cash. The fitoro wai full of cus
tomers and the druggist and his daughter ,
who were waiting on the trade , did not
notice anyone In the neighborhood of the
safe. The big Iron safe stands alircst next
to a door which forms the Uos Molnes street
entrance nnd ns It Is a well traveled street
It Is thought remarkable that no ono of thr
many constantly passing saw the snak
thief. The matter , as soon as the robbery
waa discovered by Dr. Medbcrry , which was
probably nn hour after It occurred , wna
reported to Sheriff Sinclair. A neighboring
merchant had called to act change for a
$10 bill , as It waa known qult3 universally
that Dr. Medbcrry always had money In hlo
safe nnd made n practice of nsver depositIng -
Ing until the amount saved reached In the
neighborhood of $500. As soon as he went
to the safe to get the change ho discovered
every cent gone. The only possible clue of
who might have done the work Is a man
who entered the store a short time bcforu
the robbery Is thought to have taken place
and made a small purchase. The entile
force of officers of the city have been Oe-
talled to watch all trains that leave town
and no suspicious characters will ho al
lowed to go until they have been through
the sweat box.

the last two or three weeks there has been
disaffection between fire Insurance men duo
to the threatened overthrow of the Bennett
rates , which provide nn uniform basis for
companies of the state. The trouble began
when It was learned that several companies
had broken louse from the compact nnd
surreptitiously cut their rates. This fact
being promulgated set all the tire Insurance
men In the city by their cnrs and their
outcry has been loud nnd long. It Is said
thnt should the Bennett bureau , which Is
located In Cedar Rapids , bo undone by this
local rupture , It will bo a long day before
another compromise is elfccted. Some ot
the larger agencies seem Indisposed to make
any agreement nnd contend that they have
to give up their entire commissions. In the
meanwhile , the assured Is getting his build
ings nnd property protected nt bargain

local managers who nro In Chicago at pres
ent , will bring nbout some arrangement nc- j
ceptable to all concerned. The continuation
of the present state of affairs would bo
critical to the fortunes of n number of
