FIXING CREDITORS' RIGHTS
Court Asked to Say Who Shall Re
ceive Money from Officer
The district court has been asked to de.
termlne whether the creditors of ths Offi
cer A. Pusey bank, who failed to file their
claims against the estate of Thomas Officer
wttnm the six months, shall share in the
distribution of the assets of that eststs
the same as those creditors who took the
precaution to file their claims within the
statutory time. Some months ago. before
the appointment of J. J. Stewart as admin
istrator of the Thomas Officer estate. Judge
Macy made an order to ths effect that all
creditors of the bank who had filed their
claims with the receivers within the pre
scribed time should be considered creditors
of the fourth class of the Officer estate.
Yesterday Lars Jensen and other creditors
of the bank, whose claims aggregate up
ward of $23,000. Died a petition asking that
their claims against the Officer estate be
advanced from the fourth to the third class
and they be permitted to participate In
the 6 per cent which Administrator Stewsrt
Is now psying out of the assets of that
The request Is resisted by Administrator
Stewsrt. who denies the right of the fourth-
class creditors to share alike with those
of the third class. He contends that the
question of ths liability of ths Officer es
tate for the payment of the claims of the
petitioners has never been submitted to
the court and ths order made by Judge
Macy referred solely to the bank receiver
ship and not to the administration of ths
Officer estate. In other words, Mr. 8tewart
denies the right of those creditors who
failed to file their claims sgainst the Offl
cer estate within ths six months to partici
pate In the assets until ths claims of those
creditors who did file their claims within
ths statutory limit have been satisfied.
The suit is a friendly one and has been
brought in order to have the court rule on
the matter before Administrator Stewsrt
makes any further payments on ths dlvt
dend authorized out of the funds of the
Thomas Officer estats now in his bands.
Shortly after the appointment of L. F.
Murphy and John Beresheim ss receivers
of the Officer A Pusey bank, creditors of
ths Institution were given authority by the
court to employ an expert accountant to
exsmlns ths books and accounts of the
defunct bank. C. E. Walters was employed
In this capacity by the creditors and yes
terday application was msds tbst ths re
ceivers be authorised to pay Mr. Walters'
bill, amounting to 1261.

IOWA FALLS, la., June 13. (Special.)
As a result of a quarrel In Grant townnhlp,
Franklin county, several miles northeast
of this city. Bine Wilder has been bound
over to the grand Jury under $1,500 bonde,
which he furnished. The stories In regard
to the affray are conflicting, but from what
can be learned it appears that Edgar Dol
son and Fred Dovey were returning homo
at night and interrupted a party being held
at the Wilder place. The visitors were In
vited to drink some beer and tho confer
ence terminated in Wilder ordering the
visitors off tho place. It is reported that
his commands were not acceded to as
quickly as Wilder thought they should and
a shotgun was brought Into play, tho vis
itors being shot in the legs. Dolson re
ceived the bulk of the charge, resulting in
the amputation of his leg. Blood poison
followed, resulting In Dolson's death Tues
day. At a preliminary hearing Wilder was
bound over to the grand Jury.

Comments ot long Press.
Sioux City Tribune: That Webster City
hotel man who was left with a 612-pound
negress on his hands as "security" for a
board bill Is from Missouri, too.
Davenport Republican: According to a
Sioux City minister heaven is 1,5m) miles
square. Had the people in the past been
as good as they are today standing room
would be at a premium.
Sioux City Journal: Colonel Hepburn
says he Is not particularly "stuck" on
Cuba. That Is not a material point. The
country Is "stuck" on Cuba and should
do Its duty discharge all its obligations.
The time to avoid getting "stuck" on Cuba,
was in 1&98.
Keokuk Gate City: A Council Bluffs
lawyer who has been Indicted for embez
zling IS00 has prepared a demurrer declar
ing that the charge Is Immaterial and
frivolous. In view of the amount that is
usually embezzled at a sitting nowadays
It almost seems to the Nonpareil as If the
defendant Is right.
Cedar Rapids Gazette: Occasionally
some paper that does not like the Board

Cownle or some other member has been

that some other state Is copying Iowa.

important commonwealth of New York.

BIDS ON PUBLIC BUILDING TOO HIGH
Arrest of Two Men at Elkader May
Lead to Clearlnat np the Myatery
of the Crofton Marder,
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, June 13. (Special.) In
formation regarding two railroad exten
sions was made public here today. It Is
learned that the franchise for an electric
interurban line from Des Moines to Colfax,
recured by representatives of Cleveland
capitalists, is about to pass Into the con
trol of the Iowa Central railroad and that
the Iowa Central will build a line from
Newton to Colfax and on Into Des Moines.
This Is what has been expected In some
quarters, but not until today did it become
known for certain that this was the plan
of the Iowa Central. This would bring
another railroad Into Des Moines from tho,
It Is also stated that engineers of tho
Des Moines & Iowa Falls line, now being
constructed from a Junction with the Illi
nois Central at Iowa Falls to Des Moines,
have been sent out along the route from
Des Moines to Wlnterset and Greenfield
with a view to taking possession of that
territory for the new Iowa Falls road. It
Is generally understood that the Illinois
Central will operate this road when It is
ready for business. The other railroad
companies making efforts to build through
Wlnterset to Greenfield have thus far ac
complished little and It Is believed the
Iowa Falls road will get into that terri
tory, perhaps, with a view to further ex
tensions. Announcement Is made that the Burling
ton & WeBtern railway, owned by the Chi
cago, Burlington ft Qulncy, will be changed
June 15 Into a standard gauge line and
that a new line will be built from Oskaloosa
to connect with the Albia road at Tracey.
This will give the Burlington two direct
roads into Des Moines.
Bids Were All Too High.
Dr. F. M. Powell, superintendent of the
Home for Feeble-Minded at Glenwood, was
In the city today conferring with the State
Board of Control regarding contracts
which are to be let for Improvements at
the Glenwood institution. The board has
an appropriation of $10,000 to expend in
putting a slate roof on the custodial
building, where the worst patients at Glen
wood are kept, and in replasterlng the same
building. This forenoon the board opened
bids on thiB work and found that they were
all too high. The bidders. Including St.
John & Barqulst of this city, C. G. Hlpwell
of Davenport and several Council Bluffs and
Omaha contractors, were present when
the bids were opened, and an effort was
made this afternoon to secure a revision
of figures. It was thought possible that
the specifications of the board might be
scaled down somewhat to make it possible
for the contractors to get within the ap
propriation. Tea tin a- Bankruptcy Law.
Suit was begun before a referee today In
a bankruptcy case which Is of great im
portance, .to a .number of creditors. East
ern houses commenced suit some time ago
to have Frank L. Morgan, a Jobber In
jewelfy, declared a bankrupt, so that there
could be a prorating ot the assets among
the creditors. This was resisted and
efforts made to have a settlement outside
of court.' An agreement was reached to
try the case before Judge McPherson, be
ginning today, and he came here and
opened federal court for that purpose, but
afterward the case was placed in the hands
of a referee. Morgan gave a local bank a
mortgage for $18,000 and the bank claims
that this mortgage should take his prop

Major Waller Says When He Left
Samar Was Howling
SAN FRANCISCO, June 13. Major Wal
ler, U. S. M. C by far the most Inter
esting personage to reach here on the trans
port Warren, on which was brought the
war-scarred remnant of the Ninth infantry
into port, expressed emphatic views In
the matter of the war in the Philippines.
"You can't stop the revolution in the
Philippines unless you take the worst
measures," said Major Waller In an Inter
view. "You would hate to see your
wounded and dead mutilated. I cannot de
scribe the fearful condition in which we
found some of the bodies of the men under
my command who were murdered by lnsur
rectos. I received both verbal and written
orders . from General Jacob Smith to kill
all insurrectos who were caught armed or
who refused to surrender. It waa the only
thing that could be done, and I never
questioned General Smith's orders with one
exception. This exception I refuse to
'A fair estimate of the number of na
tives killed by the men of my command
would be 400 to 500. These were all killed
In battle with the exception of eleven car
riers, Iubui rectus at heart, who were tried
by court-martial and shot. There was only
one woman shot and she was only slightly
wounded. She happened to be In the breast
works of a tort my men were storming.
"I have fought in every country in the
world except Australia," said Major Waller,
"but Samar well, hell Is a winter resort
compared to Samar."
The major spoke huskily through a deep
cold that be contracted during the home
voyage cn the transport, but he was ob
viously sincere. His dark eyes snapped
and his nostrils twitched at the mention of
the Island that General Jacob H. Smith
had ordered him to convert into a bowling
'I left Samar a howling wilderness. They
tried to make it that for us, but we made
It a howling wilderness for them."
"Want any more of It?" was asked.
"No, I'm getting to be an old man now."
His race relaxed. "I'm in my 50s. 1 Besides,
they've surrendered, and it's all over. It's
always all over when they surrender In the
Philippines," and a sarcastic Btnlle curved
under his military moustache.
"Have you anything to say, major, re
garding your court-martial on the charge
of executing Samar natives without trial?
Or was that the charge?"
"The charge against me," he said, "was
murder. Yes, one plain word, murder.
And as for having anything to say about
the court-martial, of course I have. I ob
jected to being court-martialed; It was not
done at my pleasure. I was not consulted
in the matter; I was simply court
martialed. 'I know who caused that court-martial;
I know who brought it torward; I know
who was back of it all, and Washington
knows as much."

About Ur of tiood Feellnsr
in South Africa.
LONDON, June 13. Kiug Edward held a
special court at Buckingham palace today
for the receiving of addresses from the lord
mayor. Sir Joreph Dlmsdale, and the cor
poration, and from the London County
Council, congratulating his majesty on the
restoration of peace.
The king took occasion to express his
sentiments on the subject more fully than
heretofore, and the tactful recognition
which he made of the sterling qualities
of the Boers will doubtless materially aid
In the work of appeasement In South Africa.
Ills majesty, surrounded by the house
hold, received the city dignitaries In tho
throne room and, replying to the lord
mayor's sddress, he said:
I thank you in my own name and in the
queen's for your loyal and dutiful address
and tho congratulation you tender us at
the close of the war in Stmth Africa. I
heartily Join In your expression of thank
fulness to the Almighty God for the ter
mination of the struggle which, while It
entailed on my people at home and beyond
the sea so many sacrifices, borne with
admirable fortitude, has secured a result
which will give secured unity and strength
to my empire. The cordial and spontaneous
exertions in nil parts of my dominions, as
well as In your ancient and loyal city, have
done much to bring about this happy re
sult. You give fitting expression to the ad
miration unlverHlly felt for the valor and
endurance of the officers and men who
have been ergaged In fighting their coun
Boers a Brave People.
They have been opposed by a brave and
determined people and had to encounter
unexampled difficulties. These difficulties
were cheerfully overcome by steady and
persistent effort and those who were our
opponents will now, I rejoice to think, be
come our friends. It Is my earnest hope
that by mutunl co-operation and good will
the bitter feelings of the pnst may speedily
be replaced by ties of loyalty and friend
ship and that an era of peace and pros
perity imy be in store for South Africa.
Subsequently, in response to the address
ot the Loudon County Council, the king
spoke as follows:
I thank you foe your expressions of loy
alty toward myself and the queen. I re
joice with you at the thought that the
victory which has crowned the persever
ance and bravery of my forces will pave
the way of extensions to the regions newly
added to my empire, of that system of gov
ernment which, with God's blessing, will
bring to South Africa the prosperity that
hns In every quarter of the globe followed
its establishment. The readiness with
which my subjects throughout the empire
have borne their part In the arduous can
palKn now happily at an end cannot fall
to draw them still more closely together
In bonds of loyalty and affection, and I
conlidently believe that the good feeling
which is being displayed by those who
were so recently our opponents nugurs well
