The arrests were brought about by a

Sax Jose, July 31.—A story.of a soul's
experience with tlie heareafter, and its
subsequent return to a body, is causing a
great deal of interest here. Daisy Will
iamst, tho 13-year-old daughter of Alfred
E. Williams, living at the corner of First
and Martha streets, has been sick for the
last three months with consumption,
superinduced by an attack of measles.
The girl died this morning.
Tho parents state that four weeks ago
to-day their daughter, to all appearances,
died. Aftor a period of twenty minutes,
during which no sign of life was
manifested, the girl suddenly re
vived and said to her little sister,
"Maud, have I come back to stay a
while with you ?"
The girl then told that sho had been in
heaven, and said that on her arrival her
littlo sister, who had died nine months be
fore, took her by the hand and intro
duced ncr to Jesus. Ho description of
heaven was most vivid. She related that
sho saw a host of winged angels dying in
every direction with the swiftness of
light. She told whoshesaw in heavenand
gave the names of many relatives of the
family that died bbfore s_io was born, and
also the names of persons whom the
family say she could not have known and
never heard of.
She stated that Jesus had led her by the
hand and showed her a view of hell. Sho
saw many persons there, but re< ognized
only one, a neighbor, who died here
some time ago. She said that -Jesus told
her that she must on her return to earth
tell her family what she had seen, and if
they did not believe the statement that
He would come himself or send her little
sister to convince them.
The girl says she saw God also. She
said: "Why, they aro just like men."
She said that she had no conception
of what they looked like be fore.
She told her family that Jesus' message
to them was that they would be saved if
they would be good. She told her father
that Jesus had instructed her to say to
him that ho must stop swearing and he
would be saved.
During tho time of the purported tran
sition and her death to-day the girl re
peated the story to several without the
slightest deviation. The family at lirst
did not believe it,.supposing it was the
result of wild delirium, but now they are
i positive that the girl was never delirious
during her sickness, and that the story
was a correct representation of what she
saw. Many of tho-.. living in the im
mediate neighborhood are firmly con
vinced also of the truth of the experience
A Man Jumps From a Iligh ClilT Into
San Francisco, July 31.—Yesterday
afternoon as Edward Tate, a young man,
was jishing from the rocks about a mile
and a quarter to the north of the Cliff
House, he was approached by an elderly
man who offered him a quarter, telling
him to go and get a drink. Tate refused
and tho old man passed on. Hearing a
! noise on the cliff above him, Tate looked
| up and was surprised to see the person
who had accosted him just before in the
act of removing his coat and vest. As
j soon as he had done tliis he advanced to
; tho edge of the cliff and plunged down
; into th»- ocean. As the suicide struck the
water his clothing became entangled in
Tate's hooks, and for some time Tate
tried vainly to land the body. Hailing In
this he ran up to the observatory of the
Life-saving Service, which is farther \i\>
the hill back ofthe <-li;Y. The watchman
in charge came down to the edge ofthe
cliff, where he was soon joined by the
proprietor of the Cliff House.
There was nothing in the clothing of
the man by which he could he identified.
Tate says ho was well-dressed in a dark
suit of clothes. He wore a brown hat of
the derby style, and was quite pleasant
in his address. His accent led Tate to be
lieve he was an Englishman. He chose
for tho place of his suicide what the Life

of the Peace on the charge of indecent cx
posnro of person. He defended his own
case in an able manner, but it was
thought best to give him thirty days in
the County Jail to await developments
regarding his identity. The Sheriff of
Butler County, Kas., wired to hold him
until further orders. He answers well
tho description of Milton Powers, the de
faulter and absconder. Several parties
here assert that ho is Bill Bassett, a sen
sational preacher of Silver City, Idaho,
fifteen years ago. He grew bold enough
yesterday to pen a half-column to the
Daily, I'rospcctor, in which he showed
evidences of having at some time been on
a newspaper staff". He says or does noth
ing that can criminate him. The author
ities here are convinced that he is play
ing a falso part. He gives different
names to different parties. He reads
Greek and Latin and talks German
fluently. The only difficult problem is
his age. Physically he is a perfect type
of manhood. Although putting on a bold
front he shows signs of weakening.

Houston, July 31.—William Caldwell,
colored, was hanged to-day in the County
Jail. His neck was broken and he was
pronounced dead at the expiration of
eight minutes. The crime for which
Caldwell was executed was the killing of
C. M. Shamblen on tho night of July 31,
1888b This was the first murder in what
became a notable vendetta between what
here is known as the "Jaybird" and
"Woodpecker" factions in Fort Bend
County. The warfare which existed for
two years between these factions, exter
minated a whole family and scores of
men were murdered during its reign.
Caldwell is the only person who has met
judicial death on account of it. Dr.
Shamblen was a prominent "Jaybird" or
Democrat, and tbe leader of the opposi
tion to those who wero controlling the
political destiny of Fort Bend County at
that time. Caldwell was a "Wood
pecker" or Republican. On the night of
the assassination Dr. Shamblen was hold
ing family prayer near Richmond, l-"ort
Bond County, when suddenly a load of
buokahot was tired through the window
into the body of tho doctor. He fell to
the floor with a groan ami expired, still
holding closely to tho Bible from which
ho had beon reading. Caldwell had been
renting a farm from the murdered man,

London, July 31.—Dillon and O'Brien's
repudiation of Parnell, though a foregone
conclusion, has profoundly depressed tho
Parnellites. Parnell hoped until the last
moment to again entangle them in
maneuvers for a reunion. Their prompt
and decisive declarations as soon as out

refusal to any advances from the
Parnellites, fell like a death
blow upon tho faction. To-day

A HISTORIC CASE.
Tho Earl ot Berkeley and Viscount
Dnrsley Title Quieted.
London, July 31.—The House of Lords
sitting as a Committee for Privileges to
day decided tho remarkable and historic
Berkeley peerage claim. The House de
cided that Randall Mowbray Thomas
Berkeley has established his claim to the
honors and dignities ofthe Earl of Berke
ley ;and Viscount Dursley. The claim
ant alleged that the male legitimate issue
ofthe fifth Earl of Berkeley. whoVlied in
1810, was extinct and that ho, being the
eldest male heir of the fourth Earl, was
entitled to the peerage in question. Op
posed to this claim was the claim of
Francis William Fitz-Hardinge Berke
ley, Baron Fitz-Hardinge, who asserted
that the fifth Earl of Berkeloy married a
woman named Mary Cole in 1785, but
acting under advices, a further marriago
ceremony was performed in 1796. Subse
quent to the death of the fifth Earl the
question arose as to the legitimacy of the
issue born prior to 1796, and the House of
Lords in 1811 decided the eldest son, who
was born in 1786, was not entitled to the
succession. The decision given to-day
upholds the decision given in 1811, conse
quently Berkeley hereafter will be a Peer
of tho redlW. Tho Houso directed that
Baron Fitz-Hardinge be non-suited.
A DOG'S INSTINCT
Identifies Two Victims of tho St.
Paris, July 31.—At the scene of the
terrible St. Mande railroad disaster Tues
day two bodies wero identified in a most
singular way. A gentleman was search
ing among the bodies at the Morgue for
thoso of his wife and daughter, who were
on tho wrecked train and had not been
heard of sin.-c the accident. All the
bodies remaining unidentified wero so
charred that he could not be positive that
those of his loved ones were among them.
He turned sadly away, but after a mo
ment returned, bringing a pet dog which
had belonged to his wife. The moment
the dog was released he bounded toward
tho remains of two persons, whining and
barking, and a closer examination of the
bodies satisfied the bereaved visitor that
they were those of his relatives, aud they
were delivered into his custody.
Monterey and Mexican Gulf Ballwny.
City of Mf.xico, July 31.—1t is re
ported hero in railroad circles that the In

chased the Monterey and Mexican Gulf
Railway. The report cannot be verified

road commenced building toward Du
rango the Pacific Coast people have been
wondering what Huntington would do,
and this report conies to give an answer. '
If this purchase has been made, the In- '
ternational's power and importance will
be greatly increased, and its extension to
this city will possibly follow.
