BOWERS HAS BLOOD IN HIS EYE.
He Begins His Attack on the
Pacific Mail Company.
Affidavits of Southern California
Citizens to Sustain Him.
The Onslaught to Be Renewed Next
Tuesday—Geary and Camlnettl
Quarrel Over the Humboldt
Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, May B.—Representative
Bowers of California appeared before
tbe house committee on postoffices and
poet roads this morning to argue in favor
of his resolution for investigating tbe
Pacific Mail Steamship company in con
nection with its government subsidy for
carrying United States mails. Bowers
was armed with affidavits of prominent
business men of Southern California to
show that the steamships of tbe Pacific
Mail had refused to carry freight and
passengers from San Diego to New York.
Harry J. Neale testified that he ap
peared at the steamship wharf at San
Diego and offered to buy a passage for
a lady to New \ork. The purser said
he had been instructed by the Pacific
Mail Steamship company to receive no
passengers from the port of San Diego
for New York, and if any person went
on board the steamer and insisted on
booking, he should put him off at Ma
Bryant Howard of San Diego declares
that so far as sixteen of the eighteen
ports between Panama and San Diego
are concerned the government might as
well never have subsidized the Pacific
Mail company at all. The company
does no more now for those ports as to
passengers, freight or mails than it did
before it made the contract.
Jacoby Brothers of Los Angeles, Wm.
A. Edwards, D. M. Hammack and the
John D. Hoff Asbestos company of San
Diego, and others made similar affida
vits concerning the refusal of the com
pany to receive freight or passengers for
New York. •
It wus nearly time for adjournment
when Bowers began his remarks, and he
did not have time to get fairly started,
merely stating what he expected to show
concerning the Pacific Mail's non-com
pliance with its government contract.
On Tuesday next Bowers will be given
time in which to thoroughly exhibit to
the committee the methods of the steam
CJeary and Caminetti Quarrel About the
Appropriation For It.
San Fbancisco, May 6. —A Washington
special says the appropriation for all
California harbors has been passed and
the appropriations for rivers will come
np today or tomorrow. Trouble has
arisen between Geary and Caminetti
over the effort of the latter to cut off
part of the appropriation for Humboldt
oay, and tack it on to tbe Sacramento
and San Joaquin rivers.
Caminetti offered an amendment ask
ing that the continuous appropriation
of $1,750,000 for Humboldt, which is the
amount necessary under the contract
ey stem for the completion of the work, in
excess of $300,000 set aside in the bill for
this year, b3 divided and that $750,000
be inserted instead. It was Caminetti's
intention to have the remainder added
to the river appropriations.
Geary was ou his feet in an instant
and opened with this statement: "It
has ever been that when one Californian
asks ior anything, there is another I
CAliforniau ready to plunge a knife in :
"The trouble with the gentleman,"
he said, "is that he ia troubled with |
gigantic ignorance on the subject upon i
which he is tryiug to secure legislation,
aB well as of the methods of pro- 1
Geary stated that even if the amend
ment.was cairied the rivers would be
benefited in no way, and would not
secure that part of the appropriation i
cat off. Further, he said, the rivers i
which it was intended to benefit were in
his own district, so that Caminetti could
not claim a paternal interest in his op
position to the Humboldt bill.
Caminetti said in his reply, that
while it was true that the rivers were
principally in Geary's district, he offered
the amendment in a spirit of fair play, '
as these rivers carried to market a large
part of California's products, and passed
through the populous part of the state,
and their improvement was imperative.
The amendment, however, was lost
by a vote of 84 to 52, and Humboldt's
appropriation, unamended, was agreed
to without further delay.
THE NEW EXCLUSION ACT.
Instruct ions Being Prepared to Officials
for Its Enforcement.
Washington, May C—The treasury
department today received from the
state department a certified copy of the
new Chinese exclusion act. New in
structions to the collectors of customs,
special agents and others, whose duty it
will bs to inforce the provisions of the
law, are now being prepared in the
treasury department and will be issued
probably tomorrow in the iorm of a cir
cularletter. Until the instructions are
recieved the United States officials will
be governed by the previous instructions
on the subject.
It was Baid at the state department
this afternoon that the Chinese minis
ter had taken no official notice of the
Chinese exclusion act, so far as the de
partment is advised. This refutes the
report that he had applied for passports
for members of the Chinese legation,
with a view to the severance of diplo
matic relations with the United States.

San Fbancisco, May 6. —A conference
was held here last night between the

THE OLD BLKINS CONSPIRACY.
Before tbe committee on private legal

tbe interest of the conspiracy of 1877 of
Stephen B. Elkins, then delegate to con
gress from New Mexico, United States
Attorney Catron of New Mexico and ex-

their vested rights. The resolution calls
for an investigation.
General O'Beiine and Thomas St.

Many Improvements Made—Tha Mack
Rbdondo, May 6^—The first school of
mackerel of the season gave signal of
tbeir vacation from tbe high seas this
week. When the old fisherman sees
that sign of fluttering on tbe still, glossy
waters of our bay and -knocks the ashes
out of bis pipe on the heel of his left
boot with the air of a man who
thoroughly understands himself, and
is heard to murmur, "that's them,"
then and not until then it is
time to take down your rod and basket
and sharpen up your bait knife. Then
is the time when the old man, with his
trim rod and tackle, basket and pipe,
and the small boy with bare feet and
knowing smile, are envied because their
baskets eound the long roll such as only
a mackerel can sound, while the tender
foot buys bait and getß his line tangled,
the small boy still dangles his bare feet
over the side of the wharf and smiles
and the old man smokes and cuts bait.
Redondo already has her apron strings
tied in readiness for the throng of sum
mer visitors and for ber many friends
and well-wishers throughout Southern
California who have always admired
this place for itself alone, and felt the
interest which the place, so peculiar in
itself, never fails to excite in the vis
itor. The promise is made from every
point here to offer more sources of
amusement and interest this season than
ever before. Many changes will be noticed
by the first of our semi-annual visitors
the coming season; improvements
highly legitimate that stand finished to
show them the earnestness with which
the Redondo Beach company continues
to show enterprise in making improve
ments, the last of which is to add 100
feet in length to their splendid wharf.
Last season where it was hard to find
desirable cottages for rent, we now have
no less than thirty beautifully finished
cottages and residences, built within
the past three months. Especially to
insure those who desire euch for the
season, that they shall be satisfied in
this respect, these improvements are too
numerous for mention. Passing from the
residence portion of tbe place which has
bo many homelike spots down to the
beach we find much that ia new and
worthy of inspection. Commencing at
the Pebble beach, which has scored such
popularity on account of its inexhausti
ble yield of rare gems, we find it
like an anthill dotted with its eager and
merry guests gathered to find these
gems. A little further up tbe beach
where the sand dunes now lie barren
the visitor may find yet remaining un
earthed many curious relics of the red
man. On returning to the town you
firat come to the large pavilion which
is now being remodeled in the in
terior and under able management
will offer a programme of interesting
features during tbe coming season.
Refreshments of every kind will be
served, with a brass band in attendance,
and for those who would rather cool
their brain than to bathe in the Pacific,
this place offers attractions. Glancing
from here along the front street, the eye
is met with restaurants and refreshment
stands, with decorations and tempting
displave, ample to serve an army of
hungry and thirsty souls.
Many new improvements are seen on
the Front street, among which some
are worthy of special mention, which
space will not permit this time. Suffice
to say, we have no lack of accommoda
tions for all who favor us with their
