Ban Francisco, Bept. 9. Tlie last few
flaa have been prolific of runiore In con
nection witli tlie Durrant case, perhaps
more so tliau any corresponding period
since tlie bodies of Minnie 'Williams and
Blanche Laniont were found In Emmanuel
Cliurcli and Durrant was arrested for
All sorts of stories emanating from tlie
nioit vague sources Jiave been circulated
and published, only to be flatly contra dieted
wlien traced to tlie fountain otitlie in
formation. Such tales as the one that Clarence Wolf
would tcstiry to Durraut's having told him
of his intension to lietray Blanche Laniont;
tliat May Vitro was suppljing tlie funds
to comp ic definse; that Hie defense
would 'take ill the Minnie Williams
case to snow that thegirl -was not murdered
on the nig'it nhenshewasBupposedtohave
lost her lire, but on the following morning,
nnd that she was not in Durrant's com
paii) that fatal lught, but in the company
of an aged suitor.
These are only a few stories that have
been given publicits and have been pro
nounced false b) tbepcrsonsmostiiiterohtefl.
LATEST riECE OF EVIDENCE.
Tlie litest of these startling stones is
that wi red frc-ru Los Angeles Saturday tethe
effect that Miss Ida M.Claton, a teacher
In the Bedding miliary School, Is cither the
person, or knows 'who was the one, that
Durrant is supposed to have fnghtened In
tlie church by a sudden appeara nee he made
before her one day.
Capl. Lees took up the work personally
yesterday of Investigating the story, but up
to last evening he had failed to find the
whereabouts of MissClayton, who had gone
out of the city over Sunday. He was com
pelled to give up last evening -without hav
ing satisfied himself of the truth of the re
port. ABOUT THE BLOCKS.
John T Dare, nrosecutlng attorney in po
lice court No 2, will be one or the Stale's
wlliiesscs Wednesdaj. His son, Starr Dar,
has already testified to rinding the wearing
apparel of Blanche Laniont stov.ed away In
the rafters and under the floor In the belfry.
But Starr Dare did not notice the two
blocks under the head of the body as it lay
wilh Its arms folded oil the floor. So fax
only one of Ibe people's witnesses. Detec
tive Gibson, has been able to testify concern
ing these blocks, though several other wit
nesses who saw the body in the belfry be
fore It was removed by Deputy Coroners
Amith nnd Ilallett have been examined
Detectiv e Gibson noticed these blocks and
Now these blocks, K properly Identified and
proved, ar eof considerable Importance In
the case, for they tend to show that who
ever It was that placed the body of the mur
dered girl where It was found had knowl
edge of the customs In vogueinihedlssccting
WIIAT THEY TROVE.
The head rested on these blocks just
as the head of a corpse In a dissecting room
would have done. Durrant Is a medical
student. True, there Is nothing direct
about the evidence, but It is considered a
good link in the long chain of circumstan
tial evidence upon which the state expects
to make out Its case against Durrant.
Attorney Dare Eaw those blocks under
the head or the body. He was in the beirry
before the body was removed. His evi
dence is valued highly by the people.
Heretofore Dickinson, of counsel for the
defendant, has questioned each witness
who was In the lielfrj about those blocks,
with the result that no one else beside De
tective Gibpon, seems to havenoticed them.
There Is a good deal of preliminary testi
mony yet to be'adduced before the witnesses
who connect Durrant with the case can
be put upon the stand.

Commissioner Browning Anticipates
No Serious Ending.
Commissioner of Indian Affairs Brown
ing has received no advices from Indian
Agent Wright, of the Rosebud agency, re
garding the threatened trouble by the In
dians caused by a redaction of rates

serious trouble, because Agent Wright has
ample telegraphic facilities at hls'com
mand and has failed to report any disturb
ances. He said that he was personally
acquainted with Hollow Horn Hear, who,
while unruly at times. Is easily quieted.
The reason for the reduction lo the freight
rates ,was that the goi ernmcul was pay

should do, and upon the recommendation
of Agent Wright, of the Rosebud agency,
and Agent Penny, of the Pine Rklge agency,
the pay of the Indians was reduced to the
proper amount, and Instructions were sent

regard to whether I would accept or would

"Would j ou accept such a position were

"Well," replied Mr. Coudert, "to an

"It is my opinion," continued be, "that

New Yorke always had a representative

Organization Is Conducted.
The statement Is made that the native
Cubans residing In Washington are tak
ing steps looking to the organization here
of a revolutionary club which will be
come a branch of "Del Partido Revolu
clonarlo Cubano," which has ramifica
tions in almost every section or the United
In addition to securing contributions for
the insurgent cause the local organization
will indirectly Influence, so far as pos
sible, the action of the United States in
recognizing the Cuban insurrectionists as
belligerents. It is believed that lu amplifi
cation of tills jiolicy an unofficial embassy
will be established here to openly rep
resent tlie Cubans.
Such a representation could nut at this
time be recognized by the State Depart
ment; but its purpose would be to appeal
through the press to American people and
work up a popular" sentiment In lavor of
openly recognizing tbe independence of
The best illustration of the good to be
accomplished, by such an embassy. Is found
ii) th: Ch ilian revolution against Balmacedo's
dictatorship, when Semrr Moutt and Julio
Foster, came here, established headquar
ters, and rendered the cause they advocated
most etrective service.
G EKERAL FRIENDLY FEEIJN G.
Not only arc the American iieople almost
a unit In favor of aiding the revolutionists
by recognizing Ibe belligerents, but it is
practically known to Dc a certainty that
tbe Administration and the State Depart
ment officials are inclined to view with
unusual friendliness any sign Indicating
tbe establishment of a republic in the
queen or the Antilles.
This feeling of friendliness is not based
upon he alliance Incident, the Mora
claim, trc the Agramonte dispute, or dip
lomatic' disputes that have occurred dar
ing the. last three decades.
Those promlrent in public lire and in offi
cial iiositlon have not forgotten tbe fact
that Spain all but recognized the Southern
Conlederacy as a belligerent nation. When
Napoleon made his proposition to Lord Pat
mcrston that England and France should
simultaneously recognize the Confederals ,
States, S iain volunteered to become a party
to the contract. This arrangement, through
the influence of the RotlischUiU, was side
tracked. But from the first gun against Sumter
to the undated Ia-t engagement Havana
was openly made the rendezvous of all
thoe who sympathized with the Confed
eracy and sought to further Its interests.
While Spain committed no overt act, the
influence- of foreign consuls unfriendly
to the Federal government made It pos
sible, for every conspiracy and plot to be
batched ami matured in Havana.
These facts have not been forgotten, and
there will be nothing- but rejoicing when
Spain reaps. the whirlwind as the result
of sowing Ibe wind. It is upon these facts
that tlie recognition of Cuban independence
at the earliest possible.moment by theUnltof
Slates is conridentlv'expectcd.
