Vanderbilt Thought to Have Secured Con trol of the Union Pacific. ?Tkw York, April 9.— lt is rumored that the Vanderbilts have secured control of the Union Pacific This is supposed to account for the noticeable strength of that stock. The Vanderbiits have long desired to ob tain a western connection for the New York Central and Lake Shore roads. There is believed to be considerable foundation for the rumor. Officials here are nou-com mlttal regarding the alleged deal, The Times says : Tne annual meeting of the Union Padfic Company is close at hand. There are whispered suggestions in Wall street that developments of great im portance will take place at that meet ing. Current reports are that the Vauderbilts h;ive acquired influential interests in the property, ana Some state ments represent that full control will pass into Yiindei hilt's hands. The prediction of the Vanderl)ilt control of the Uniou Pa cific property is not new. It was heard and vouched for, seini-offieially, just before the unmihl meeting last May, but there suddenly arose some obstacle to the plans that were, then undoubtedly ar raiifii-l. It is declared that the Vau derbilt control could have been au nouueed before this time except for the fart that it would be considered inadvisable to have it known pending Con gressional readjustment of the Union Pacific Government debt. It was arcued that the knowlodyo that Vanderbilt's inillioti9 were invested in the property would have invited a savage opposition to any liberal settlement. Tne value ul the Union Pacific: property to tho Vanderbiltd was lately made very char by theYanderbilts themselves, who have brought about the close alliance between it and their Chi cago and Northwestern road. This alli ance is of importance beyond any other transaction in the railway world during re cent yenrs.

Fort Dodge (Iowa), April 9.— ln 1858 the State of lowa deeded to the Dcs Molnes River Navigation Company every alternatlr section of land in the State withiu six miles of Dcs Moines liiver. About the same time many settlers located on the same lands and received patents from the United States. For years the matter has run, ani several cases were brought against the company by settlers who were evicted, but the settlers were defeated. Then, at its previous ses sion, when hundreds of farmers were being evicted from their (arms all through Ham ilton, Booue and Webster counties, Con gress ordered the Attorney-General to com mence a suit directly against the liiver and Land Company in the name of the Govern ment, which is set for trial at the June term in this city. Edwin Litchfield. the principal claimant and holder of the river lands, then peti tioned the United States court to enjoin the collection of $20,000 taxes in the counties named. The case has just been heard at Council IJluffs, and an opinion given by Judges Shiras and Love refusing to grant an injunction in the following language: The lands taxed, or to be taxed, belong to me complainant, as he claims. H lias been repeat edly adjudg d by the Supreme Couil of me Unned Stales that tie lands In question are prlvaie t>ro|ierty, aud In a word i lie Judgment of the Supreme Courl already ma.le shall leinalu unchanged. The properly In question belongs to LlicUGeid. aud he will but pay taxes on his own properly, and we have uo reason to assume, aud cannot assume, that rue Sui rem« Court of the United States will swerve or change Us adjudication regarding these lands. On the contrary, it would appear to thn Court that the adjudications which ao fur establish compl.iln am's title will not be overturned. At all events. we cannot assume that they will tie overturned merely because proceedinns are taken at the Instance jI the Attorney-General, ailsiug re motely and sumewlut indirectly, to Impeach the complainant's title, as now pending. Hence me Coun lliinlts that Hie danc-r which the plainlin seeks to avoid is an uueeitalo coutinceut, aud Iv our view ratuer liuagiuaiy than otherwise. We see nothing In the rase or history of the title, which Is well known to the Com t, lo warrant us In thi; conclusion that any Irreparable injury, or any lujmy whalever, will ultimately arise to the complainant from the payment of taxes. This decision is considered to be final here, and will deprive fully 500 farmers in >the counties named of their lands, on which they have lived for years and spent hun dreds of thousand of dollars in improving. Fully 150,000 acres of the best lauds in this vicinity are affected by the decision, and are worth hundreds of thousands of dol lars. Trouble »nd evictions will b« neces sary to obtain possession of the lands. ELECTION RETURNS. Heavy Democratic Majority in Albany— The Australian Ballot In Missonrl.

Republican Members of the House to Confer. A Programme to Be Arranged for the Con sideration of Fending Bills. Tie Tariff Measure Nearly Ready to Be Sub milted for Debate— A Few Minor Changes to Be Hade. Special by tbe California Associated Press. Washington, April 9.— The Republican members of the House will meet in caucus to-morrow to determine upon the order oX business. At this meeting it is expected teat the silver aud pension questions and a few other propositions will be considered and a programme arranged for the order ot procedure in consideration of pending measures. There is a report that this caucus Is called fcr tho purpose of passing upon the Tariff Bill, but this is not correct. The Republi can members of the Committee on Wny3 and Means do not consider that it is ex pedient at this time to submit their bill to a cjneus, particularly as the measure has uot b#eu pnutedfor general distribution among the members, and they have had no chance to examine its provisions. The committee called a meeting this morning at which the bill with the changes that have been made since it was reported to the full committee was submitted to the minority, and an un derstanding was reached that at the regular meeting to-morrow the bill shall be acted upon, the minority to have an opportunity of proposing such amendments as they may desire. So far as the majority of the members are concerned the bill may now be said to be complete. A few verbal chauccs were mndo this afternoon, and it is probable from the disposition exhibited by the minority that no obstacle will be presented to reportiuK the bill to the House to-morrow. No deci sion has l.een reached as to when the House will be asked to take the bill up for consid eration, nor has any decision been made a» to the duration of the general debate. It is believed,' however, that the general debate will not extend beyond four or five days. An examination of the bill shows that the items transferred to the free list yielded last year in duties over $6,000,000, and that estimates of the duties under the bill on the basis of last year's Importations would have yielded nearly $1^^,000.000 asjHinst 1221,000,000 collected. Tne duties under the bill would increase the revenues from the various schedules as follows: Tobacco, about Ss,OO0,0O0; agricultural products, $11,000,000; ilax, jute and hemp, $3,000,000; wool aud its manufactures, Slfi.wxyioo, and sundries, $:i,000,000. Tlie reduction on sugar would be Jii7, 000,000. Tbis is the only schedule which shows auy reduction worth noticing. A paragraph will be added to thp bill be fore it is reported providing that all uoods, wares and merchandise, the product of cou vfct labor in foreieu countries shall be ex clttded from entry into auy ports of the United Slates. 3OMMANI>EK COGHLAN.
