It is  manifest to'pcojile at. all well in-  iormctl on  tlie subject that the "spe-  Attorncy    J. C.

He read  in fact Alicrc    is very little that    is   to tne court telegrariis received    by  \:S  true in the statements made. The  :bill introduced at Ottawa yesterday  goes to show that the deal between  -the 0. J\ R. and the E. &. N, company, has probably been finally arranged, an* no doubt further infor7  \ ination that is reliable "will" be giv-  ^en ouit soon:  "That a sale of E. & N. railroad  ���������.securities has been effected to the  iC.P.R., that that railway company  will immediately upon, receipt of  them be in a position to take control  of the line as owner of the majority  of the stock, that the securities in  question formed part of the estate  of the late Alexander: Dunsmuir, but  , were omitted from the inventory and  that it is now planned to rush them  out of the state of California and beyond the jurisdiction of its courts,  arc the astounding statements which  have just been alleged through the  medium*, of new proceedings' before  Judge Coffey in the great will suit."  Tbe judge   was   informed  yesterday  that railroad securities valued at $G-  (100/000, which were never mentioned  in the inventory     filed  in the   estate  of Alexander  Dunsmuir,  were to    be  sent away from San Francisco within  twenty-four hours  by virtue  of   a  sale  in Montreal,   Canada, and thereby   taken  oiit'of  the jurisdiction     of  .the  California courts.     He was asked to appoint immediately Public Administrator    J-Iynes  to take 'charge  of  the     estate which  is temporarily  ���������witlhout a custodian,  in  order    that  lhe plan niight he  frustrated.  A   delay was secured  until a     late  hour   yesterday by  Attorney  Charles  S. Wheeler,  the  local representative  of James Dunsmuir.  Incidental to the charge laid in the  local court the information became  public that the Canadian Pacific  Railroad will take possession at  once of the Esquimn.lt and Nanaimo  Railroad as the result of the deal in  which James Dunsmuir was transferring $6,000,000 worth of E. & N.  ���������stock to the company.  The stock, according .to in form a-  1.ion received by Thomas W. Hicfcey,  attorney for Hie public administrator  has been in the possession of Attorney IT. G. Platl, of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce, and it would be  possible to secure possession if ac-  ttion was taken before the close of  J-ankiDg hours.. x  the.  let-  Judgo   Uarnctt,     telling about  scheme  to sell the stock.  Judge  Coli'cy  ordered  special  ters  to be 'issued.  Just how the stock came to - be in  possession of the attorney of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce has not  been-definitely learned, lt is believed, however, that it wus placed in  his hands in connection" with the deal  by which James Dunsmuir acquired  possession of the holdings in the E.  & N.. Company 'of the Pacific Improvement Company some time ago.  It js--thought that he hypothecated/  the stock he had received by the  death of his brother Aleftander in order to obtain the_j������oney for the put-  chase of the ..Interest of the Pacific  Improvement^ Company. This , would  be turned over to the Canadian Pacific Company aiid would give that  company a controlling interest in the  line.  The announcement that the C,P,R.  would proceed*no further with the  legalizing of. the sale ol* the road confirms the impression that this new  stack arrangement, which requires  no sanction from the Canadian parliament, is to take the .place of the  first deal. If, however, the public  administrator succeeds in seizing the  certificates, another method still  may have to he found of.transfering  the' E.  & N. to the C.P.R,  The capital stock of the E. &l N,  is registered at $3,000,000. The company values its property in the railway, land grant and coal mines and  coal lands at nearly four times this  figure, so that the C.P.R., by taking  $(1,000,000 worth of stock, would, secure t/lie majority interest. This is  probably the partnership arrangement which it was .said was to take  the place of the purchase of the road  separately and by it the C. P. R,  would acquire an interest in all- the  Dunsmuir holdings, including the  roal mines at Cumberlan'd and Extension.  ^STEAMER   DELAYED.
