THE ROAD TO BE OPENED.
That Which is to Cross the Harvey
Ranch.
The Supervisors Decline to Allow
Damages Beyond the Sum
of $650.
The proposed new road over the Har
vey ranch, near Gait, was the chief
topic of discussion before the Board of
Supervisors yesterday. Mr. Harvey is
the non-consenting land owner interest
ed in the matter. That is, he has
claimed the road would not only be of
no benefit to him, but a positive in-'
jury, as it would divide his land. He
has not objected to the road being
opened, but if it was he would expect
to be paid for the damage it would do
to his property, and originally placed
the sum at .$2,000.
The viewers reported in favor of al
lowing Mr. Harvey $650, but when the
matter was before the Supervisors some
time ago definite action was deferred
until Mr. Harvey could be heard on the
subject.
Yesterday he appeared before the
board, accompanied by Attorney R. T.
Devlin. The latter addressed the board
on behalf of Mr. Harvey and said that
rather than have it said that he was not
disposed to be liberal in the matter he
would accept $I*2oo for the damage
the cutting up of his land would entail.
But if the road were laid out it would
be necessary to construct a bridge over
a swale that afforded a natural drain
age for the land.
Chairman Morrison said the board
would attend to that matter —that Mr.
Harvey had nothing to fear. The county
oannot interfere with or obstruct a. nat
ural drainage course.
Mr. Harvey then explained that the
course of the road, as laid out, would
not be straight. He would as soon give
sixty-six feet in width as forty, and
would ask no more damages therefor.
Mr. Devlin said that if Mr. Harvey
wanted to cut up his land to .sell it,
that would be one thing, but as It is he
preferred to keep it in one piece. Any
expert would allow him several thou
sand dollars damages for putting the
proposed road through the land. But
he only asked for consequential dam
ages for the cutting of his land in two.
It was not an acreage proposition—the
mere value of the land taken cut no fig
ure. The State can condemn land for
pirblic use, but allows damages. It
Is not a fair proposition to say to a man,
"I want one acre of your land and will
pay you its value. Would it be fair to
take a certain number of acres out of
the middle of Mr. Harvey's land and
pay him $85 an acre for it? It would
be the duty of the public to make him
whole for consequential damages."
Mr. Harvey doesn't want the road,
said Mr. Devlin, but if the people out
there and the Supervisors demand it,
it would only be right to compensate
him for damages. H? is willing to con
cede much for the public benefit, but
if not allowed a reasonable compensa
tion for the injury to his property he
will have to go to the courts for it.
This would entail expense on the county,
for any fair jury would give him much
more than he is willing to accept.
There are already roads over the'prop
erty, used by the public, but probably
a county road would be preferable.
Supervisor Jenkins said the people
were tired of opening gates. The era of
gat.--opening had passed. If a man is
lucky enough to own a large tract of
land, is it right for him to Inconven
ience the public?
Mr. Devlin conceded that the road is
needed, but all that Mr. Harvey asked
was fair treatment. Ihe burden should
not be borne by him, but by everyone.
He concedes much, because he desired
the good will of his neighbors. But he
should have a fair compensation for his
loss, and If he cannot get it he must
rely on the courts.
Mr. Harvey told the Supervisors that
he and his father before him, hail given
much land for roads. He was willing to
always act generously with the county
in such matters. The 9650 allowed him
by the viewers was not fair. The fenc
ing required would cost nearly or quite
that sum, and he would have another
line of fence to keep in repair.
Chairman Morrison thought the pro
posed road would be a benefit to Mr.
Harvey, instead of a damage.
After some further discussion the
board declined to increase the sum
recommended by the viewers and
adopted the report. Supervisor Jenkins
was instruct'd to confer with the Dis
trict Attorney in the matter of having
the road opened.

BOY DROWNED.
M. J. Burkes Son Loses His Life
While Bathing.
Henry Burke, the fourteen-year-old
son of M. J. Burke, an employe of the
Southern Pacific Company's black
smithing department, was drowned yes
terday in one of the sloughs beyond the
north levee, near the Twelfth-street
road.
He and a companion named Shaw
went over there to bathe, and they
finally got beyond their depth. The
Shaw boy managed to get out, but his
companion went down and was drowned.
At last accounts last evening the body
had not been recovered, but it may
have been later on, as the slough is not
very deep and there is no current.
Never a summer passes that boys are
not drowned in some of these treacher
ous sloughs or the river, but as boys
will go a-sw miming, these fatalities are
certain to occur.

MURDERED FOR A TRIFLE.
Joseph Mitchell Slain by Daniel Graves,
the Gardner.
The Awful Crime Committed Because
the Young- Man Saw Fit
to Whistle.
Shortly after 9 o'clock last night a
well-known young man, Joseph Mitch
ell, was shot and instantly killed at
Twelfth and P streets by an eccentric
character who is known as "Whistling
Pete," but whose name Is Daniel
Graves, a gardener who is well along in
years.
Mitchell, his young brother Edward
and two or three others were in front of
Ilanlon's grocery store talking on vari
out matters, when Graves passed by,
going in the direction of Thirteenth
street. Edward Mitchell was whistling
in an ordinary manner, and after pass
ing Graves returned and said:
"I'll not have any more of this whist
ling, and I want It stopped!"
"Can't a man whistle on this corner?"
asked Joseph Mitchell, who was leaning
against a post.
"Well, I'll be d d if I'll have any
of it!" returned Graves, and with that
he started to walk on up the street.
Edward Mitchell, who was sitting
upon a chair just outside the sidewalk,
kept on with his whistling. After going
about twenty yards Graves turned
around and once more approached the
group, saying:
"I tell you this whistling has got to
be stopped!"
"This is a free country, isn't it?" in
quired Joseph Mitchell, who was still
leaning against the post, and nearer to
the man than either of his companions.
"Well, I won't have it! You can't
blow any wind into me!" retorted
Graves, and without another word he
whipped a revolver from his pocket and
lired a shot at Edward Mitchell, who
was still sitting on the chair.
Joseph Mitchell appeared to take in
the situation at a glance and sprang at
Graves, evidently intending to disarm
him, but the latter proved too strong,
and in a second's time had pinned his
victim against the side of the store,
raised his revolver and shot at him.
Without a sign, word or tremor, Jo
seph Mitchell pitched forward to the
pavement, dead.
The two friends of the murdered man
were on their feet In an instant, and
Edward Mitchell rushed inside and se
curing a revolver from behind a coun
ter, rushed out, but was met by the pro
prietor of the store, who took the weap
on from him, saying:
"There's been enough of this, Ed."
In the meantime Graves had started
up P street toward Thirteenth, running
as fast as posible, and was soon out of
sight.
Just at this time, and before a crowd
had gathered, a woman came swiftly
from towards Thirteenth street, and one
of the men said:
"My God! It's his mother! Take her
away!"
It was indeed the mother of the mur
dered man, and as soon as she learned
what had been done she went into hys
terics. She was carried to her home
near by, where a physician was called
in to give her necessary attention.
The aim of the murderer had been
true, and the ball striking the left side
of the chin of Graves' victim, ranged
downward, entering the breast through
the neck. Death was instantaneous.
The police patrol wagon was soon on
the ground and the murdered man re
moved to the Coroner's office, while
Officer Fisher, soon afterward joined by
Officers Wilson and Talbot, took up the
trail of the murderer.
Graves has been in Sacramento a
number of years, and while known to
be eccentric, he was thought to be harm
less. His main hobby appears to have
been that everyone whistling was doing
so with the intention of blowing him
full of wind, so that he would float away
like a balloon.
The murderer has a plot of ground
rented between Fourteenth and Fif
teenth streets, on P. When not engaged
at gardening he works from house to
house, cutting grass and doing odd jobs.
He is a rather tall, wiry man, wears red
side whiskers, and is apparently about
45 years old. He frequently stopped
strangers on the street who chanced to
be whistling, and ordered them to stop.
Joseph Mitchell lived with his mother,
sister and brothers on P street, near
Fourteenth, and was a painter by trade.
He was a quiet, industrious young man,
a member of the local military (or was),
and was well thought of by all that
knew him. He was about 28 years old
and unmarried. His father met his
death by falling from the Cathedral
seme years ago, on which he was em
ployed as a painter.
The officers first went to the shanty
in which the eccentric murderer made
his home, but he was not to be found.
From there t hey went to a barn in a field
of corn at Eighteenth and R streets,
which they surrounded, believing that
he was inside, as he was often known
to pass his idle time there. It was be
lieved the man was desperate and would
make a strong light before he surren
dered.
But the search in the barn provedun-
availing, and all trace seemed to have
been lost of the assassin for some time.
Shortly before midnight several young
men visited the Police Station and re
ported that they had passed a man in
Capitol Park answering to the descrip
tion of Graves. He was going aimless
ly along mumbling to himself, "I did it!
I did it! and I'd do it again!"
This was characteristic of the assas
sin, who often talks to himself, and the
officers (elt certain that they were on
the right trail. They hop* d to locate
the cruel assassin and lodge him safe
behind the walls of the City Prison be
fore morning.
The mother, sisters and brothers of
the murdered youth are nearly dis
tracted from grief.
AMUSEMENTS.
At the Clunie Opera-house this after
noon at o'clock, to-night at 8 and to
morrow night for the last times the rat
tling comedy "Lords of Creation, or
Fink Dominoes." Some changes have
been made in the cast. Miss Dallas is
now the Sophie Greythorne, while Miss
Yantes is Rebecca, the demure serving
maid, and a charming one she is, better,
it must be confessed, than was Myra
Davis, whose engagement with the com
pany has expired. J. J. Dowling has also
retired. Mr. Dowling made but one ap
pearance and did not meet expectation.
Despite the heat and the discom
fort of indoors, there was a good au
dience at the Metropolitan Theater last
night to see John Drew and Maud Ad
ams, with tine support, in the new com
edy, "Christopher, Jr." The play is a
very pretty and very witty one, rather
too long- drawn in dialogue, but it is
acted so charmingly, and is so human
in its interest and natural in its hu
mor, that the audience readily forgives
the length of the dialogue.
Manager Todd is having both theaters
wired for electric lighting, the work on
the Opera-house having already begun.
The Metropolitan will be taken in hand
next. It entails heavy expense, but it
will repay by the bettered temperature
and atmospheric conditions that will re
sult, and hence better attendance at the
theaters.
The Bond Question.
There was to have been a meeting of
the City Trustees last evening to con
sider matters connected with the city
debt, but owing to the absence of Judge
Holl, attorney for the commission, the
meeting was postponed.
Chamber of Commerce.
On Thursday evening next the Cham
ber of Commerce will hold an important
meeting. The resignation of Secretary
Katzenstein will be acted on, among
other things.
Brewers' Picnic.
The Brewers will hold their annual
picnic at East Park next Sunday. They
are making arrangements for a first
class time, and expect to have it.
PHILADELPHIA'S SKELETON.
Bones of an Extinct Animal Un
earthed in a Quarry.
A skeleton not unlike a mammoth,
and very much unlike any of the ani
mals of the present day indigenous to
this region, has been unearthed in West
Philadelphia. The scientists ln the Wis
tar Institute of the University of Penn
sylvania are now making an investi
gation, in hopes of definitely fixing the
age, origin and species of the strange
specimen.
The skeleton was unearthed April
9th by workmen at Pemberton's stone
quarry at Fifty-fifth street and Wytalr
using avenue. The men had put in a
big blast, and after the smoke had
cleared away they found a most curious
state of affairs. The stone bank that
had been disturbed evidently formed
the front wall of a cave that ran back
underground some thirty feet, says the
Philadelphia "Inquirer."
The walls of the cavern had been per
fectly formed. In the center of the pit
stood a skeleton. It was larger than
that of any animal the men had seen.
Four great tusks stood out from the
bony jaw, and some of the teeth that
sfccod in two well-formed grinning rows
were six inches in length. The smallest
tooth was two and one-half inches In
length and about an inch square. Most
of the bones were in a perfect state of
preservation. Near the skeleton was
what looked like a human skull.
The bones were taken out and put in
a pile. Unfortunately no guard was
placed over them, and crowds of peo
ple who visited the spot on Sunday
carriecl many of the bones away as
relics.
When Dr. Milton Greeman, curator
of the Water Institute, visited the
cave yesterday several important bones
were missing. What was left of the
skeleton was, however, taken to the
institute for investigation. Dr. Gree
man said that in many respeots the an
imal looked like a rhinoceros. The for
mation of the head was not unlike that
of a large bear. As the bones lay yes
terday it was almost impossible to say
whether they belonged to one or more
animals. But the men who saw the
skeleton first are positive that there
was only one. Dr. Greeman thinks the
animal too small and too young to
have been a mastodon. The bones were
not over 400 or ."00 years old. The
skull that was found near by was evi
dently that of an Indian.
The rocks in the neighborhood of the
quarry axe of limestone formation.

BOTH BROKE THE RECORDS.
Professional and Amatenr Hammer-
Throwing Yesterday.
Tom Carroll Beats the Former, and
Robert G. Edgren the
Latter.
Tom Carroll, the Scotch athlete, broke
his own world's professional records at
hammer-throwing in this city yester
day. He thrftw a ICVi-Potund hammer
153 feet 6 inches, and a 12-pound
3-ounce hammer 183 feet 6 inches. The
record (his own) for the 16-pound ham
mer was 146 feet.
At the same time Robert Edgren of
the State University beat the world's
amateur records by throwing the 16
--pound hammer 146 feet, and the 12
--pounder 174 feet 3 inches.
The previous amateur record for the
16-pound hammer was held by J. S.
Mitchell of New York, and was 145 feet
%of an inch. The previous amateur
record for the 12-pound hammer was
164 feet 2 inches, held by W. L. Coudon
of Delaware.
Yesterday's performances were wit
nessed by a number of persons, and in
both cases were sworn to before a No
tary Public. Following is the affidavit
in Carroll's case, and that in Edgren's
case is similar:
"We, the undersigned, certify that
Thomas Carroll, a member of the Cale
donia Club of San Francisco, made the
following hammer records at Sacra
mento July 10, 1896, and. we further
certify that such records were made by
throwing said hammers from a seven
foot circle, with turn; that the length of
the handle did not in any instance ex
ceed four feet over all, including the
hammer-head.
"And we further certify that the
weights of the hammers hereinafter
given to be correct; that the ground on
which the records were made is level,
and that the wind did not assist him in
any w r ay.
"Weights of hammers, 16% pounds;
distance, 153 feet 6 inches; 12-pound
3-ounce hammer, 183 feet 6 inches.
