San Francisco, Nov. 9.—Police Officer
Jeremiah Cotter was shot and killed
this morning by his wife at their resi
dence on Fifteenth street. The couple
had a quarrel, originating, it is stated,
from a report tbat the police commis
sioners would examine Cotter tonight
on the charge of intemperance. Mrs.
Cotter claims her husband attacked her,
and that she fired two shots in self-de
fense, one of which took effect in his
back, killing him instantly. The woman
surrendered herself, and was taken to
jail. It is elated that the couple had a
quarrel in February last, during which
Cotter fired a shot at his wife.
The funeral of Special Officer John H.
Gillen, who was shot by a Chinaman
last Saturday, took place today. A
large number of friends of the deceased
attended. Among those present was a
young lady from San Jos6, to whom the
dead officer was engaged to be married.
Many handsome floral pieces were sent
by sympathizing friends. The police
took charge of the funeral and were as
sisted by the Native Sons, to which or
der Gillen belonged.
Joseph Corwell, who was shot by the
same Chinaman, is resting easily, but
there is no certainty that he will re

San Francisco, Nov. 9. — Railroad
Commissioner Rea was absent at the
regular meeting of the board today.
Had he been present it was expected a
written decision in the case of tbe Santa
Cruz Lumber company against tbe
Southern Pacific company, would have
been rendered. This will now likely be
disposed of when the board meets again
on the 23rd inst.
A letter from Vice-President Stubbs,
of the Southern Pacific, was
read. The commissioners, at their
last meeting, a week ago, ordered a
reduction of rates on all livestock
shipped from points on tbe Placerville
division of the Southern Pacific. In
his letter Stubbs reports having re
ceived notice of tbe order of reduction,
and adds: "The Southern Pacific com
pany is advised by counsel, and believes
your board cannot legally fix the rates
to be charged for transportation on any
lines of the railroad operated by that
company, and therefore respectfully
protests against your action in tbat
It. The letter, which caused tome com
ment, was filed. The order will be en
forced but no action will be taken until
after the first proximo, the date when
the order should go into effect.
The case of R. G. Sheath of the Con
sumers' Ice company against the South

Toledo, 0., Nov. 9. —Delegates to the
fifteenth general assembly of the
Knights of Labor are arriving here in
large numbers from all parts of the
United States, Canada and two or three
cities in Mexico. The delegates say
this will be one of the most important
assemblies ever held.

The secretary's report will show that
tbe order has increased in membership
over 8000 during the past year, in this
country alone, and that all the local as
assemblies are in a flourishing condition.
The most important matter to come
before the assembly will be the public
school system of this country. Many,
perhaps a majority of the delegates are
Roman Catholics, and yet they intend
placing themselves on record in refer
ence to the school question. Feeling
appears to be unanimously in favor of
the public school system. A prominent
delegate, a Roman Catholic, said this aft
ernoon : "Tbe Knights believe in edu
cation as the only safeguard of this and
all other liberty loving nations. It is
tbe duty of the state to see that a child
is educated, leaving to the parents tbe
selection of the school, or method of
such education. It is a parent's right
and privilege to educate his child
in a Catholic, Lutheran, private
or public school, just as he
sees fit; but it is the duty of the state
to look after the child and see that it is
educated. We are in favor of com
pulsory education, so the state can
legally and in an authoritative way say
to the parents or guardian : 'Educate
your child : I don't care wheie; I leave
that with you; but you must educate
him or I will.' That is the position of
the Knights of Labor on the school
question, and that resolution will be
adopted in tbe general assembly, it is
believed, without a dissenting voice.
We may also take some action in favor
of introducing the Australian ballot
into states not yet voting that way."

The ironclad Merrimac which har
assed the Union fleet, and was herself
finally disabled by the Monitor, made
during her first unquestionable triumphs
a victim of the frigate Congress. After
the fight had continued for some time,
the Merrimac was so fortunate as to take
such a position relative to her enemy
that the destruction of the Congress be
came only a question of moments.
Her commander was slain, she had
been repeatedly Bet on fire, and her decka
were covered with dead and wounded.
She was accordingly run ashore, and
there hoisted the white flag.
The Merrimac now sent alongside two
tugs to take possession and remove the
prisoners, but these were driven back by
a sharp firing from the shore.
General Mansfield had directed the

guns were wheeled into position to pre

"I know the old ship haa surrendered,"
said he, "but we haven't"
That settled it. Unable to take pos
