No Collision Between the
Boomers and Soldiers.
THE CATTLEMEN AND THE CHIEK
Cherokees to Stand by the Eansre
Men—Fences Broken Down by
AVay of Reprisal.
(Associated Tress Dispatches to tho Herald.
Kansas City, March 19.—The Times
special from Oklahoma City reports
everything quiet there this evening. The
United States troops are still driving out
the "boomers." The only foundation
for this afternoon's sensational reports aa
to a conflict between the soldiers and in
vaders is that Lieutenant Carson was
knocked down by a boomer yesterday,
the offender being at once arrested. The
Kansas United States Attorney has na
jurisdiction over Oklahoma, that Terri
tory being in charge of the United States
Attorney at Fort Smith, Ark.
Caldwell, March 19.—The semi-an
nual meeting of the Cherokee Strip Live
Stock Association was called to order thii
afternoon by President Hewing. T. P>.
Mayes, Chief of the Cherokee?, made an
an address in which he assured the mem
bers of the Association that they need
have no fear in regard to retaining pos
session of the land, that tbey had leased
it for five years and there was nothing
that could remove them as lodk as they
paid their rent. After speeches, an op
portunity was given to all those desiring
to ask tfce Chief questions. Among the
questions asked was his opinion in re
gard to the Cherokee Commission, to
which he replied : "That will amount to
nothing. All they will do is to coma
down hero and have a good time. We
will not sell the land at $1.25 per acre."
Another asked what they would do if the
soldiers attempted to remove them, to
which Mayes replied: "It will be an
easy matter to stop that. If the soldiers
attempt to put you out, all fhat will be
necessary is to serve an injunction on
them." Another asked what will we
do with the "boomers?" Mayes re
plied: "We will take care of boomers.
You stay with us and we will stay with
you." At the conclusion of Mayes'
speech, Snyder, a wealthy Kansas City
cattleman, made a motion that the Chief
be elected an honorary member of
the Association, which was carried
without a dissenting vote. President
Hems then presented the situation as
being the moat favorable in the history
of the Association. To-morrow the regu
lar election of officers takes place. Not
withstanding the brave front put on by
the leaders, good ranges can be bought
for a great deal less than a few months
GBDDA Springs, Kansas, March 19.—
On Sunday morning the cattle men
along the border lor a great distance on
the Cherokee strip awakened to find
their fences all destroyed. Sunday night
the work of destruction was renewed
and it is thought that the stables, corrals
and other property will go next. It is
thought that this iB done in retaliation
for the driving out of the boomers from
the Creek and Seminole ceded lands.
The people here and at Arkansas City
are quiet, and seem determined to stand
loyally by the law and the Presiden
tial orders. They feel, however, that if
law-abiding men are kept out, all others
should be, so that all may have an equal
chance in the selection of lands.
St. Lot;is, March 19.—The Republic's
special from Wichita, says the Oklahoma
boomers have fled to the woods upon the
appearance of Lieutenant Carson and a
body of soldiers. Scouts were sent out
to hunt them down, but were instructed
not to resort to violence. In what is
known as Crutch county, north
west of the Oklahoma station,
ouite a large number of boom
ers had gathered around William
Beck. Among the number were his
daughter, a relative, Samuel Anderson,
and an old man named William Adams.
Their property had been destroyed in the
former raid, and they cherished a bitter
animosity against, the troops. Their
hiding place was discovered by an In
dian scout and reported to Lieut. Carson,
who sent a detachment after them. As
soon as the boomers saw the troops
coming they made propnrations to stand
their ground and protect themselves.
When surrounded and call upon to sur
render, they began parleying and made
threats which exasperated the soldiers
who charged the party, but see
ing the boomers armed and having
orders to avoid a conflict they dis
mounted, and by an adroit movement part
of the boomers were relieved of their
srmß. Anderson and Adams, however,
held out, and made a desperate resist
ance with the guns. The former re
ceived a terrible blow from the butt
of a revolver, and the latter was
struck in the mouth. After being
disarmed, the boomers fought with clubs
and stones, but were soon compelled to
surrender. Several soldiers received
slight wounds, but none wore serious.
There bas been great excitement among
the boomers since the conflict, and while
all express a determination to make a
similar resistance, they are seeking safer

'I in- Daiig-btcr of tiie Chief Justice
of the United States Elopes.
Chicago, March 19. —The Pailn Newt'
Milwaukee special says: Miss Paulina
Fuller, fifth daughter of Chief Justice
Fuller, was married here to-night at the
Kirby House by a Justice of the Peace.
The groom was J. Matt Aubery, Jr., of
Chicago, and it was a runaway
match. When the 6:30 St. Paul train
arrived, this evening, a petite woman
was helped off the steps of a parlor car
by a well-knit young man with a smooth
face. The lady was closely veiled, and
was escorted to a carriage by her com
panion. They were driven at once to
the Kirby House, where they registered.
No room was assigned to them, and the
lady and her companion spent the early
evening in the hotel parlors.
About 9 o'clock the young man came
down stairs and informed the clerk that
he wanted a Justice of the Peace.
Clerk Cole is well up on such
affairs, so he winked knowingly,
and assured tbe young man that every
thing would be arranged inside of 15
minutes. Justice Gregory arrived.
There was a hurried consultation, anil
then the young man brought the blushing
young lady forward. Tho ceremony was
a brief one, and the Justice, who is a very
prosaic gentleman put on no extra frills.
He did not know that the bride was a
daughter of the Chief Justice of the
United States and neither did any of
those who were present, outside
of the contracting parties. When
the ceremony was concluded the old Jus
tice called for witnesses and two young
men were captured in the billiard room

They were now legally and firmly
spliced. The justice coughed dryly.
The young man slipped a bill into his
hand Mr. and Mrs. Aubrey were ec
coited tot lie bridal chamber.
Mrs. Aubrey, nee Paulina Fuller, is
19 years of age, a highly educated and
a remarkably handsome women. J.
Matt Aubrey, Jr., is 23 years of age. He is
a son of tbe General Western Agent of the
Merchants' Dispatch Fast Freight Line.
J. M. Aubrey, Sr., has been a residentof
Chicago since 1870, when he left Mil
waukee. He is well known here, and
Congressman ißaac Van Shaack is one of
his most intimate friends. Young Aubrey
is employed in his father's office in
Chicago, and is a handsome young fellow.
As near as can be learned, the acquaint
ance of the bride and groom began about
three years ago. Justice Fuller, who was
then a plain lawyer, lived with his daugh
ter on Lake avenue, only a short distance
from the home of young Aubery. The
young people met first at a
party given in the neighbor
hood. An attachment sprang up
between them and when it became ap
parent it was opposed by tho Fullers.
Miss Paulina declarid, howevi r, she
would many whom she pleased ami her
father recognized her right to do as she
pleased. Mrs. Fuller, however, vehe
mently opposed the match.
About this time Lawyer Fuller was
named as Chief Justice of tbe United
States. Mrs. Fuller gleefully packed up
aud carried Miss Paulina away to Wash
ington with the other Misses Fuller.
About tbe Ist of last January Miss
Paulina informed her mother that she
was 1!» years of age, and that she intended
to make a trip to Chicago. Mrs. Fuller
opposed the trip, bnt the girl was tirm
in her determination, and a few days
later she If ft. Since tbat time she bus
been in Chicago visiting friends of the
The story of the elopement of the
young pair is an interesting one, and
demonstrates that young Aubery has cut
his eye teeth. To begin with, he hired
two detectives to shadow him and his
affianced until tbey left Chicago.
These two guardians he paid eight
dollars apiece. His object waß
to learn if anyone was following them,
and fo prevent tho young lady from

noon when he met Miss Fuller, and
Gunters' candy-store was the trysting
They boarded the Milwaukee and St.
Paul train at the Union depot at 2 :30
o'clock. To make matters more inter
esting, young Aubrey's father also left
for Milwaukee on the Northwestern
road, at least that is what the young
bridegroom thought thi3 evening, while
flushed with the success of his elope
ment. However, all efforts to locate the
senior Aubrey were unavailing. Young
Mr. Aubrey, to use hia own language,
"will rustle around a bit" in Milwaukee
before returning home.

mines, and will to morrow declare a sus
pension of payment and demand the ap
pointment of a judicial receiver. It is
rumored that the shareholders of the

Under tho existing contract they are not

Boston and Montana, Clark's smelter, and
the Colorado will all continue to produce
and hold copper. It is said that this will

i.OKU SALISBURY'S SEN TIMENTS.
fie AwaltD tiie !?<■< t-lon ot the Par-
London, March 19.—1n a speech at
Watford this evening, Lord Salisbury
stated that nothing short cf a vote of
want of confidence would bring the Gov
ernment to a premature end, and that
those who thought otherwise were amus
ing themselves with vain dreams. He
added that he would not discuss the
forged letters or the much graver "nat
ters of accusation against the Irish
lenders, which were now before an emi
nently competent and impartial tribunal.
The Government had no interest in the
letters. The Commission had been ap
pointed to consider far wider and more
important charges. There had been a
deal of public embracing of the Parnell
ite leaders, but before expressing an
opinion he would wait for the judgment
of the Commission.
London, March 19.—The Daily News,
commenting on Lord Salisbury's speech
at Watford, says: "The Prime Minis
ter's speech li«b sealed the fate of the
Government. He has drawn his sword
and has thrown away the scabbard. He
is driven by the course of events
into a state of desperate fury. Like
Juno, he is glad to eat his enemies, and
to eat them raw. If Lord Salisbury were
imprisoned for a technical breach of the
law, and if any Radical referred to him
as he referred to O'Brien, the offender
would deserve to be ignominously hooted
from the society of decent people.
THE PILURI.UD IN HOWIE.
Americans Praised by the Church
Rome, March 19.—The American col
lege gave a grand dinner this evening in
honor of the leaders of the American pil
grims. . Many prelates were present.
Bishop Keane, President of the new-
Catholic University at Washington,
spoke in English, Latin and French.
The Pope's Vicar, Cardinal Parocchi,
delivered a powerful Latin oration on be
half of the Pope. He expressed the
Pope's admiration for American institu
tions and spoke of the deep interest taken
by His Holiness in the birth of Wash
ington University which he regards as
one of the chief glories of his pontifi
cate. Cardinal Schiaflines eulogized
Washington University as the crowning
work of Christian education —a work that
was destined to display America to the
world as a living exemplification of per
fect accord between the highest learning
and science and the Catholic faith. Mgr.
Jacobini traced America's wonderful
progress. He referred to the treasures
of faith poured forth by Catholic Ireland
and contrasted the strong and vigorous
liberal American institutions and the
people of the Catholic churches in Amer
ica with the sadly painful situation of
the people and Church in the Old World.

London, March 10.—Sir William Ver
non Harcourt announced tbat he in
tended to challenge the conduct of the
Government in placing Irish officials,
paid by the public, at the service of the
Times in connection with that paper's
charges against the Irish members of the
House. He also announced that on the
vote for Attorney-General Webster's
salary he should ask what state service
the Attorney-General had rendered dur
ing the last nine months, and why any
salary should be paid to him. Glad
stone denied the right of Goschen,
the Chancellor of tho Exchequer, to
calculate before hand what time should
be allowed ior the discussion of the vote.
He denied the right of the Government
to take away the right of the Mouse to
the time necessary for full discussion.
Harcourt, in opposing the motion of
Smith, the Government leader, to give
precedence to the vote, accused the Gov
ernment of shirking discussion and of
trying to introduce a new and surrepti
tious form of the cloture. He said the
time was drawing near when the com

FIGHT TO A FINISH.
Jimmy Carroll Knocks Out Sain
Blakelock In Fifteen Rounds.
San Francisco, March 19.—The glove
contest between Jimmie Carroll, for
merly of Boston, and Sam Blakelock, of
England, took place to-night in the rooms
of the California Athletic Club. The
men weighed 133 pounds each. Young
Mitchell and George McDonald were
Blakelock's seconds, and Sam Fitzpat
rick and Tom Meadows acted for Carroll.
Hiram Cook was chosen referee. Fifteen
hundred people were present. Time was
called at 9:45.
In the first two rounds the men
sparred cautiously. Blakelock led, but
Carroll avoided him. In the third round
Blakelock got in a sharp one on Carroll's
mouth with his left, and in the fifth Car
roll got in a heavy blow on Blakelock's
nose, drawing first blood. Fierce fight
ing followed. Carroll doing the best
work. From the sixth to the tenth
round considerable rushing was done,
the honors being apparently even. In
the tenth round Carroll got in a terrific
right hander, knocking Blakelock down.
In the eleventh round Carroll scored an
other knockdown, but the rushing pace
told, and both men appeared weak.
In the twelfth Blakelock came up fre?h,
but Carroll rushed him aronnd the ring,
bent on finishing him up. Sammy took
his punishment bravely, showing consid
erable cleverness. The thirteenth round
opened with Blakelock groggy but plucky.
Carroll got in a number of vicious upper
cuts. Blakelock tapping him feebly.
In the fourteenth Blakelock got in
several good stabs with his left,
and in the fifteenth led low, where
upon Carroll claimed a foul, which was
not fallowed. Carroll then tushed his
opponent, the latter clinching in the
effort to save himself. Carroll whirled
around, hitting the Englishman in the
face, but the latter would not go down.
In the sixteenth round Carroll started in
with a rush, giving blow after '
blow. Blakelock struggled man
fully to hold his own, but 1
Carroll was too strong for him, and :
finished his work with a terrific right
bander, laying the Englishman senseless.
The fight was one of the pluckiest ever
seen in the city. Both men displayed
about equal science. Carroll's superior
strength, however, proved too much for
Blakelock, and won him the fight.

Tiie Pacific Postal Telegraph Com
Mr. Wm. Stoerer, superintendent of
tiie Pacific Postal Telegraph Company,
is in the city making arrangements for
the establishment of offices here. As
has been before stated in the Herald,
the Pacific Company is running a wire
down from Han Francisco to Los Angeles
and will shortly be in open competition
with the Western Union Company. The
wire men are at present work

will, it is expected, get into
Los Angeles by the Ist of May.
They are putting up their own poles and
stretching copper wire, an unusual thing
for telegraph work. Quarters have been
secured at 134 North Main street, adjoin

DIED ON THE TRAIN.
Inquest ou au Unknown Held at
An unknown man died of consump
tion Monday evening on the east-bound
Southern Pacific train. The Coroner
held an inquest on his body yesterday
morning, and Senator J. E. McComas,
who happened to be sitting near the
man, gave his testimony ay to the cir
cumstances of his death. The conductor
came through the train and asked the
man for his ticket. He had none,
but drew out a purse from his pocket.
The conductor asked him where
he was going, and he answered in a
whisper, '"Yuma." He was bent over
and seemed to be in a very bad way. A
few minutes later he straightened out his
limbs and lay back dead. His body was
taken to Pomona, where the inquest was

H"as evidently about 30 years of age. He
had a red sandy moustache, brown hair,
blue eyes and his countenance was
marked by a lump over his right eye.
On the man's person nothing was
found to throw any light on his identity
except a receipt for $2, dated May Hi,
.1888, on board some steamer going from
Honolulu to San Francisco, and drawn
to "August Oleson." It is probable that
this is his name.
The Coroner's jury found that death
had resulted from natural causes.
