REGARDING THE TRAINS.
Another Change in the Time-Table
Expected Shortly.
The premonitory mutterings of a
change in tlie railroad time-table are
heard from the Fourth and Townsend
street office by the officials in this city,
and as near as can be leanu dat present
the change is to go into effect on May Ist.
It is understood that a second-class
local train is to be run between this city
and San Francisco, leaving here some
where near G o'clock in the morning and
arriving about 8 o'clock at night.
At present the Portland express carries
second-class passengers from tliis city to
San Francisco, taking on the second
class cars after it arrives iv the depot
here. Il arrives here at 5:55 A. X. Itis
understood, however, that train will be
scheduled to reach Sacramento about two
hours earlier, and no second-class cars
will be attached.
Other changes will probably develop
later.
ANOTHER "REFORM" SUIT.
This Time the Policemen's Salaries
are Attacked.
Tlie Special Tax "Declared to be Not
Collectable—A Technicality ln
tbo Extra Clerk Suit.
It became noised about the Court-house
yesterday that a new suit is about to be
commenced l.y the same reformers who
recently brought suit to cut off the extra
clerk list maintained by several of the
county officers.
POtilCBXXS'fl SALAKP>.
This time, it is said, the reform cudgel
is to be aimed at the special tax voted for
recently by a majority ofthe citizens of
Sacramento, to pay the salaries of the
extra policemen who served two years
ago. and vho wero never paid, because
they were illegally appointed.
As in the Clerk .suit, K. A. Burr will
pose as plaintii: on behalf of the re
formers, and it is understood that Chaun
eey H. Dunn will file the papers. The
suit, it is said, will be in the nature of a
WBIT OE REVIEW,
And wiil undertake to put in issue the
authority of the Trustees to order an
election as they did. In fact, the writ of
review will bring up the whole question
of jurisdiction, and will cover the pro
gs from the issuing of the election
proclamation by the city, un to the can
vaasof the votes and the final order for
tb-- special tax. The papers In the suit
will probably be filed to-day or to-mor
row—and yet they may be held off for a
couple Of weeks, after the announcement,
as was done in the case of the clerk suit.
Tin: OTHEB SUIT.
Clinton L. White, who represents Burr
and the reformers in the suit to oust
the extra clerks employed by the order
ofth ■ board of Supervisors, by the Aud
itor, Sheriff, Assessor and County <"_erk,
bled affidavits with County Clerk
Rhoads, yesterday, showing that sum
mons have been duly served in the cases;
that the time allowed by the defendants
lich to plead had expired; that the
time for such pleading has not been ex
tended, and demanding that default be
entered in the cases nam< d.
The defendant, however, deny this and
stat" that their attorneys did secure an
< \o : uon of time. The matter will come
up for hearing shortly in court.

Tho suit of Mrs. Palmer against Sheriff
Weaver is a branch oi' tlio many legal
complications existing between H. J.
Palmer and ex-Senator James <'. Fair.
Says the Woodland Mail: At the time of
bringing the original suit by Senator
Pair an attachment was issued and
placed in tin- bands of Sheriff Weaver
who took possession of all the property
found in tho possession of Mr. Palmer.
.Mrs. Palmer then brought tho present ac

"NO ROSE-COLORED TESTIMONY."
A Witness in the Hughes Case Says
He Was Approached. . .
The "Cracker Man" Said Hughes Was
a Scoundrel—Mr. Black "Will
Bo Heard From.
"Yes, sir, I have been approached re
garding the testimony I was to giv*e in
this case."
Tho trial of John P. Hughes, charged
with perjury, was on hearing in the Su
perior Court yesterday, and C. C. Duliane
had just finished testifying for the prose
cation. Clinton B. White, attorney foe
the defense, began the cross-examination
ofthe witness by asking him if any effort
had been made previous to the trial to in
fluence his testimony, and the witness re
plied as above quoted.
Of course the statement created a sen
sation.
Everybody leaned forward and listened
to what tbe witness said.
THK CRACKER MAN.
"It happened some time ago," contin
ued Duliane. "I was workine upstairs
in the Janitor's office at the State ( apilol,
when a. police officer, Jack Wilson, I
think they call him, came up to me and
told me that a certain gentleman wanted
to see mc on important business."
''What gentleman?" asked attorney
White.
"His name is Blade He runs a cracker
bakery on Front street," replied Duliane.
"Well. E told the policeman that l didn't
have time to go with him, but he Insisted
that it was an important matter, so I fi
nally went (town tothe cracker bakery.
I met Mr. Black there and introduced
myself. He said, 'Oh, yes, you are the
man who is going to testify in the Hughes
case.' I said, '\es, I suppose so.' Black
then said;' Well, you don't want to give
any rose-colored testimony for Hughes—
he is a d scoundrel.' "
"What reply did you make?" asked
Mr. White.
"Why, Ijust looked at him with con
tempt" replied Duhane wilh a curl ofthe
lip. *I told him that I was an American
—born in America—and that I would
swear to nothing but the truth and the
whole truth. 1 then bid liini good day
and left."
The Mr. Black referred to by the wit
ness is the father of Supervisor Black,
and was present in the court room while
Duhane was making this statement.
When Duhane concluded ho was ex
cused from the stand.
Latenon Mr. Black took tlie witness
stand and save his version ofthe affair,
offi.-er Wilson, he said, felt friendly
toward Duhane, and believing that the
latter was going to color his testimony in
Hughes'favor, took him down to Mr
Black's for a talk. Mr. Black said ho
Simply told Duhane "not to color his tes
timony or he might get into trouble."
He told him to go Into court and tell the
trutli and nothing but the truth—without
any stretching or coloring—and Duhane
said he would.
THE CHARGE .AGAINST HUGHES.
The trial of Hughes was not concluded
yesterday but probably will be to-day.
He is charged with the crime of perjury,
committed last year in Justice oi' the
Peace Henry's court. According tothe
theory of the prosecution, judgment was
rendered against Hughes in the Justice
Court and in favor of Thomas Mclnerny,
for $50 and §25 costs, but he did not pay
the judgment on the plea that he pos
ted nothing. He was summoned before
Justice Henry and questioned regarding
Ids possessions, and particularly with
reference to the allegation that hi* was in
partnership with one John H. Coffey in
the building Of a house for C. C. Duhane.
f i ughes under oath denied this, and de
clared that lie bad no interest in the
money due for erectintr the building.
Coffey took the stand then and testified
that Hughes was his partner, but by his
| (Coffey's) consent and also that of Dv-
I bane, Hughes' name was erased from the
building contract. According to Coffey's
statement this was done in order te save
Hughes from his creditors.
j Judge W. IB Oram of Yolo is hearing
the case in place of Judge Catlin, who is
jin Woodland. A jury is also listening to
the testimony.
THE SWIMMING BATHS.
"Work "Will be Commenced in a Very
Short Time.
While little has boen said lately about
the swimming baths the directors of the
association have been hard at work get
ting its afi'airs in shape, and there is every
prospect that the site will be decided
upon and work commenced on the build
ing within a very short time. Many
obstacles have boon met with and over
come, and the directors at last see their
way clear to the erection of swimming
baths which will be a credit to the eh v.
A large majority of the stockholders
have signed the constitution and by-laws.
Th.- certificates of stock have heen
printed and are being delivered to sub
scribers. Among the first to receive and
receipt for his certificate was Collis P.
Huntington, who, although not a resi
dent of Sacramento, subscribed for |5,000
worth of stock. There are many Sacra
mentans who are well able to tako stock,
and assist in this worth v enterprise, who
have not yet done so. It is to be hoped
that they will still join in the beneficent
work.

BECAME A CHRISTIAN.
How George Holden Was Converted
a Week Before Death.
The Sacramento "Women's Christian
Temperance Union's Influence—
Where Is His Mother?
A young man who left with the circus
that was here last week was accidentally
killed a few days ago in the elephant car
near Sheridan.
At the time no one seemed to know
who he was. On his person was found a
Women's Christian Temperance Union
card, issued by the Sacramento society,
and a Testament given him by the same
association. From these his name was
ascertained to be George Holden, and
that he came from Sacramento. The
Women's Christian Temperance I'nion
of Sheridan thereupon took charge
of the body and buried him at Sheridan
on the 12th, and reported to Mrs. Jenks,
President of the Women's Christian
Temperance Cnion in Sacramento, and
asked information a. to the relatives of
the young man.
HE WAS CONVERTED.
Yesterday his name was found on the
books of the association here, and Mrs.
Barrett said to a reporter: "I remember
him distinctly. I talked with him. Ho
told me his name was George Holden:
that he was not a Christian, and had not
been inside ofa church in ten years, and
that I was the only person in the country
who had ever inquired if he was a Chris
tian, and he was grateful for the interest
I had shown; that he thought more
earnestly about religion than ever before,
and that he would
DECJDK THE QUESTION
That night. He seemed to be an Intelli
gent young man. Two or three evenings
afterwards he came into our rooms and
signed the pledge, and was happily con
verted. He told me that his parents and
grandparents resided in Boston: that he
had not written to his mother in ten years,
but would do so at once. He obtained work
with the circus company as a worker,
and left Sacramento. In ]'ess than a week
he was killed at Sheridan, as you know."
The Women's Christian Temperance
I'nion ladies wisli to send the pledge and
Testament found on him to his mother,
and ask that the press will kindly assist
to find that mother by publishing the
Hams and facts.
