A Young Man Struck by "Light

San Benito County—The Utica
Mine Fire Believed to be Out,
Though the Shaft Will Not be
Opened Until To-day.
PORTLAND, Aug. 18.—The annual
timber Area in Lower Columbia River
have set in, and on the Washington side
the fires are raging furiously from
points in the interior between Kalama
and Vancouver to Calumet and Skam
owa, and on the banks of the Cowlitz
about Clifton and along the high tim
bered bluffs overtopping the river for
There ls not much destruction report
ed as yet from these fires, but unless it

and help to carry the destroying flames
further into the interior and nearer the
backwoods the villages and ranches
would be in danger.
UTICA MINE FIRE.
The Flames Are Believed to Have
ANGELS CAMP (Cal.), Aug. 18.—The
fire in the Utica mine seems to have
abated, although it is impossible to as
certain to what extent the fire ma/ have
spread, or to estimate the amount of
damage done. Until noon yesterday
the Stickle shaft was being flooded by
every available inch of water obtain
able m Angels. This water is trans
ported through an aqueduct or flump, a
distance of sixty miles from the Stan
islaus River, and should the mine be
closed down Indefinitely, the miners will
find temporary employment in repairing
When the General Superintendent,
Tom Lane .arrived on the ground, ord
ers were immediately given to discon
tinue the Hooding process, and to at
tempt to smother the fire. All the
shafts were bulkheaded as closely as
the character of the ground will per
mit, and from present indications the
fire is believed to be dying out.
The cause of the fire is attributed to
the carelessness of a miner who was
tilling his lamp with oil at station No.
4. A lighted wick was thrown among
the kerosene, and ignited one of the
cans. An effort was made to put this
out, but in the attempt another can
was upset, and panic stricken, the men
tan to get out of the shaft, alarming
the shift then working, who ptomptly
deserted their posts.
STOCKTON,Aug. IS.—The news from
Angels to-night is that the Utica mine
shaft will not be opened before to
morrow, but it is believed that the fire
is out, as no smoke or gas is coming
up. The delay was ordered owing to
the desire of Superintendent Tom Lane
to talk with Alvinza Hayward, who
was to reach the mine this evening.
Charles Lane, one of the owners of the
mine, is absent, but they all have the
fullest confidence in the judgment of
his son, Tom, who is now in charge.
District Attorney Lindsay Makes
His Opening Statement.
SANTA CRUZ, Aug. IS.—The court
room was crowded this morning when
District Attorney Lindsay began his
opening statement in the George F.
Plyler case. He spoke for an hour,
saying that the prosecution would
prove that Plyler had entered into a
conspiracy to maim Charles Harris.
It would be shown that Plyler had ap
proached reputable men versed in sur
gery' to obtain their services; that he
had engaged a negro to assist him;
that it was first proposed to take Har
ris out to Wagner's Park to perform
the operation, and leave him there;
that Plyler's act was not that of a
husband while in a fit of passion, but
that it was done coolly and delibterate
l,y every precaution having been taken
to prevent Harris losing his life. "Mrs.
Flyler," continued the District Attor
ney, "was the bait in the trap set for
A sensation was caused when M.
Schoedde, co-defendant, was called to
the stand by the prosecution. The first
question. "Do you know Plyler?" elic
ited an objection by the defense, which
the court overruled. Schoedde was in
structed by the defense to refuse to
answer, and he replied, arising from his
chair, that he declined to answer, be
cause it would incriminate him.
Attorney Rurchard argued at length
on this point, as the court had stated
that the witness must answer the ques
tions put to him. The court finally took
the matter under advisement.

YOUNG MEN S INSTITUTE.
The Grand Council Opens Its Ses

SANTA ROSA, Aug. 18.—The morn
ing trains on all roads brought in large
numbers of delegates to the Grand
Counzil. Young Men's Institute, now
in session here. The noon trains
brought in more, and most of the dele
gates had arrived when the Council
was called to order at Odd Fellows'
hall this afternoon by Grand President
At 9 o'clock this morning the Santa
Rosa band took up a position at Odd
Fellows' hall. The delegates formed
in line there a few moments later, and,
headed by the band, marched to St,
Rose's Catholic Church, where solemn
high mass was celebrated. The church
was handsomely decorated in honor of
the important event. The delegates
had reserved seats, and the church was
crowd -d with those who desired to
witness the imposing ceremony. The
music was furnished by a San Fran
Principal Interest centered in the ad
dress delivered by Archbishop Rior
dan to the delegates. The Archbishop
took for his text a passage from the
ninth verse of the eleventh chapter of
Ecclesiastics. "Rejoice, Oh. Young Man
in Thy Youth, and Let Thy Heart
Cheer Thee in the Days of Thy Youth."
The Archbishop's address was an elo
quent and patriotic effort. He appealed
to the young men to live up to the
teachings of the church of their order,
telling them that in a few years the
country would be in their keeping.
Mass was celebrated by Rev. Father
J. M. Cassin, assisted by a number of

Rich-Bearing Ore Struck a Few
Miles From Mariposa.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. IS. —News
has reached this city that a ledge of

miles northeast of Mariposa, which is
owned and operated by Fred Jacobs,

William Truax has discovered a ledge
that promises to eclipse any of the dis
ccveries heretofore made in this vicin
ity. Truax, accompanied by an actor
named Dillon, arrived yesterday after
noon. He camped just above the Davis
gravel mine, on Morrison Gulch, leaving
his partner to place their canvas home
in order. He started out, pick in hand,
for a preliminary survey of the land.
Shortly after sundown he found a piece
of float in which gold could be plainly
seen. Looking carefully around, he de
cided to investigate a slight promon
tory further up the hill. Before dark
he had discovered what turns out to
be a ledge.
He and his partner were at work soon
after daylight, and have stripped
enough of the sod and slide to make
them feel well satisfied with the result
of their visit to Trinity. The ledge is
over two feet wide. Every sample of
the rock prospects well, and in much of
it the precious metal is visible. Truax
is from Cripple Creek. Dillon is well
known on the vaudeville stage. He was
one of the team of Dillon and Lynch.
He left an engagement in Sacramento
a few days ago to try his luck in the
mines. His meeting with Truax was
accidental. The ledge discovered is
above the Davis claim, from which good
money is now being taken, and below
the Blue Jay claim of the Graves broth
ers and Henry Carter.
Gambling games are running full
blast in Trinity County, and everything
is as in old mining days.
New ledges of quartz are being un
covered in several of the old mines and
location notices are being recorded by
the wholesale. Considerable of the land
in Trinity in the gold belt is owned by
the railroad company, but can be ob
tained for .$2 50 an acre. Many are
availing themselves of that opportunity,
and instead of going to the fields and lo
cating claims they are buying rail
road lands, and by so doing are assured
of a perfectly clear title to their prop

NEW TRIAL DENIED.
Judge Dougherty Renders an Opin

SANTA ROSA, Aug.
Dougherty this morning delivered an
opin'on in the case of Mendocino
County against J. R. Johnson and his
bondsmen, the motion for a new trial
being denied. Some time ago Mendo
cino County brought suit against John
son, who is Tax Collector, for $3,000,
which Johnson's Deputy, Handy, claim
ed he had paid to County Treasurer
Ford on December 11, 1896, but for
Which he took no receipt. Seven days
later Handy took $37,000 to the Treas
urer p.nd demanded a receipt for $00.
--000, so as to include the $3,000 paid
Ford, hoever, disclaimed all knowl
edge of the $3,000 payment, but being
told by the Ukiah banker, who was
with Handy when he went to the of
fice, he gave the desired receipt. Sub
sequently the Treasurer found he was
$3,000 short, and further inquiry sat
isfied the banker that it was on a pre
vious occasion that Handy had paid
the $3,00 to the Treasurer in his pres
ence. The case was tried before Judge
Dougherty and a jury, which found
that Johnson's deputy had not paid
over the $",000 as claimed. The case
will probably go to the Supreme Court.

TAXING OF RAILWAYS.
Views of a Member of Kentucky's
Board of Valuation.
FRANKFORT (Ky.), Aug. 18—At
least one member of the State Board
of Valuation does not believe in the
right of the board and of Kentucky's
right to assist the franchise of the
Southern Pacific Company for the tax
ation in this State. He says that in
the recent decision of the United States
Supreme Court in the Kentucky case
against the Western Union Telegraph
Company, Justice Brewer plainly said
that while a State had the right to
tax the property of a franchise exer
cised within its borders, that it would
be manifestly unfair for a State to at
tempt to assess all or any part of a
franchise, no part of which was exer
cised in that State, citing as an illus
tration the case of the Southern Pacific
organized and chartered in Kentucky,
but exercising no part of its franchise
This same member of the board,
however, says that there is a way by
which the Southern Pacific Company
can be made to pay a big tax to Ken
tucky. The laws of this State, he says,
provide for taxing the personal prop
erty of all residents of this State, no
matter where such personal property
may be located. He says that the
"home" of the Southern Pacific is in
Kentucky, though it does not operate
in Kentucky, because its charter was
granted here, and it was organized
here, so that its personal property,
stocks, bonds, etc., are taxable by
Kentucky, just as is the personal prop
erty of any resident or corporation or
ganized in and having its headquarters
in this State.
DUKE OF YORK.
He and His Wife Accorded an En
thusiastic Welcome in Ireland.
DUBLIN, Auff. 18—The Duke and
Duchess of York arrived at Kingston
from Holyhead at 9 o'clock this morn
ing. The weather was glorious and all
the ships in the harbor were brilliantly
decorated for the occasion. The guard
ship Melamphus fired a royal salute as
the royal yacht Victoria and Albert en
tered the harbor. At noon the Commis
sioners of Kingston Township boarded
the Victoria and Albert and presented
their royal highnesses with an address
expressing the hope th?t their visit
would lead to the establishment of a
royal residence in Ireland.
The Duke of York replied that he and
the Duchess looked forward to becoming
better acquainted with the people and
the beautiful scenery of Ireland.
On disembarkig the Duke and Duchess
of York were accorded an enthusiastic
reception, being loudly and continuously
cheered by the vast crowd assembled
on and about the Carlisle pier and its
approaches. The cheering which was
mingled with the booming of cannon,
was followed by the bands playing the
national anthem, during which the
whole thronar uncovered.
The royal party took the train for
Dublin amid a renewal of enthusiasm.
Handkerchiefs and hats were waived
and flung in the air. and the cheering
was redoubled as the train drew out
of the depot. The ovation was repeated
upon the arrival of the Duke and
Duchess in this city. All the windows
and house-tops along the route fol
lowed by the Duke and Duchess were
black with people, and the biuldings
were profusely decorated. There was
an imposing military procession, and on
all sides were to be seen Union Jacks
with the green flag of Ireland.
The visit of the Duke and Duchess of
York is to a certain degree an offi
cial function, as representing Queen
Victoria's concession to the repeated
Irish representation of the slights put
upon Ireland by failure of members of
the royal family to visit the Emerald
Isle, and the Conservatives are trying
to attach as much political importance

The explosions are attributed to the
Armenians. The police have made a
number of arrests.
Reports of the explosions spread quick

color to the rumor that the bomb throw

most abject terror prevails in the pre
cincts of the Dalace.
In many parts of the city, particu

quarters, all the shops were closed, and
it was necessary to call out the entire
police force and the military before any
thing like calm was restored. The Ar
menian who was arrested at the Otto
man Imeprial Bank was trying to place
the bundle of explosives near one of
the main entrances.
