IHTgRVIBW WITH A PASSENGER.
While waiting at the depot last night
for carriages, Mr. Wilson, Mr. Hudson,
Mr. Holden and Mr. Gorman were inter
viewed by a Hbrald reporter in regard
to the disaster.
Mr. Wilson said: "Mr. Shatto, Hol
den and myself left the city last Monday
evening to prospect some placer iniues
northwest of Mojave. We returned to
Mojave this afternoon about .1 o'clock,
and discovered that the first passenger
train to this city would not pass that
point until early in the morning. We
decided not to wait, and took the local
The oar we occnpied was a long ca
boose. There was one passenger in the
ear when we got on at Mojavn. Mr.
Giggey and Mr. Hudson also got on
with us. At Kavenna two other passen
gers embarked about about live minutes
before tbe crash came.
TUB FATAL SMARHI'T.
"Our positions in the car were about
as follows: Mr. Shatto was lying upon
his blankets in tbe front end of the
caboose with his head towards tho next
car. Hr Holden waß in a chair at his
feet. Young Colore was on the
same side. I was seated in a chair
on tbe*pposite side leaning against the
forward end of the car. Mr. Hudson
was near me, and Mr. Oiggey near him.
The other passengers were seated about
the center of the car.
"The crash came without any warn
ing. The train had begun to pull out,
when suddenly the caboose was smashed
Into from the rear and drivon into the
next car. The shock was terrific. The
floor of our caboose waß driven under the
forward box car.
"The endof thecarßmftshed Mr.Shatto
on the head crushing and also dislocat
ing it. He was buried under a mass
of timbers and iron. Mr. Hudson
was'knooked toward tbe end of the car,
and in some manner managed to escape
from the debris through a small win
dow. It seemed to me as if I waa sud
denly pinned down, hut the load was
shortly raised from me and I managed
to crawl out."
"In my opinion," said Mr. Holden,
"the reason that we were not ground to
pieces was, that the car was on a curve,
the side on wbieh Mr. Shatto and my
self were being on the outside, when
the on-coming' train struck ns it drove
out car at a slight angle against the for
ward box car, and the main part of the
floor of that car came against our side
with full force and not directly agaiust
the head of the caboose. The side on
which Mr. Wilson and Mr. Hudson sat
not direotly receiving tbe floor of the
box car." In this opinion the other
gentlemen fully agreed.
"I tell you," said Mr. Gorman, "I
have railroaded for years and 1 never
saw such an accident as that turn out as
it did. How we managed to escape
instant death was miraculous."
One of the brakmen of No. 23, who
had charge of the special carrying the
wounded, was qneetioned by the repor
ter as to tbe probable cause of
the disaster. The brekeman said

MR. SHATTO's CAREER,
Mr.<gSeorge K. Shatto, who was killed,
was one of the best known residents of
this city. He first attracted general at
tention to himself by his purchase of
Catalina island, and his many succeselul
real estate ventures. Since tbe days of
1887 he has been a prominent figure in
the real estate and financial worlds, and
had accumulated a fortune.
It is bnt recently that he completed
his magnificent residence, 0415 Orange

which overlooks Westlake park, and
is one of the finest places in the city.
Outside of his business affairs Mr.
Snatto waß little known, bis only public

a man of excellent traits, ol remarkable
financial ability, and was possessed of
an unsullied character, his integrity and
mental cleanliness being his attributes.
He was only 40 years of age and a na

United States Minister John L. Stevens,
lie is en route to his home in Maine
and is accompanied by his wife and
daughter. Thefsmily have also brought

Mr. Stevens will address the chamber
of commerce of this city tomorrow aft

fairs and their relation to the interests
of the United States.
Tbe ex-miniiter nag not disposed to
make any lengthy statement to news
paper men today, though he expressed
himself very positively in favor of the
annexation of the Hawaiian islands by
tbe United States government.
"The provisional government means
business," said he, "and if the islands
are not annexed by the United States a

On May 15th Commissioner Blount
tave out for publication his letter of in
ductions from Secretary Gresham.
Die instructions are quite voluminous
mcl request Blount to investigate the
condition of affairs in tbe Hawaiian is*
amis, saying: "Your authority in all
natters touching the relations of this
government to the existing or other
[overnment of the islands for protec
;ion of our citizens, is paramount, and
m you alone, acting in co-operation with
ihe commander of the naval forceß, is
rested full discretion and power to de
termine when such forcea should be
landed or withdrawn."
Among other things stated by Gres
ham were that Minister Stevens had
been instructed to furnish Blount need
ed assistance, and would perform the
usual functions of minister; that while
the United States claims no right to in
terfere in internal conflicts, this gov
ernment will adhere to its consistent
and established policy, and it will not
acquiesce in domestic interference by
At the end of his instructions Mr.
Blount added the following postscript:
"While I shall refrain from interference
between the conflicting forces of Ha
waiian nationality for supremacy, I will
protect American citizens not participat
ing in such conflict."
These few lines created great excite
ment, as they were regerded by all par
ties as a plain invitation to Royalists to
make trouble. The Royalistß, however,
ssv that they are not now prepared to
take advantage of Blount's notice, but
will await the decision of the I'nited
States. If the islands are annexed they
and the queen will submit to the inevi
table and become good American citi
zens. If the islands are not annexed
and the royal family believe they wil
not be, then there may be trouble.
The provisional government, although
it does not look for any diiturbance, ie
strengthening its position, and claims
to be able to hold together for severe
years, until a new administration, if an
nexation is refused by Mr. Cleveland.
On May 17th the news of Blount's
appointment as United States minister
to Hawaii arrived. Mr. Blount imme
diately took the oath of oflice and en
tered upon his new duties. He, how
ever, will not accept the position per
manently, but will ask to be relieved as
soon as possible.
Blount's appointment is apparently
satisfactory to both parties here, as he
ie regarded as perfectly impartial. Hia
work as special commissioner ie com
pleted, and his report has been for
warded to Washington.

Although Minister Blount did not
formally enter upon his new duties until

The writings of Charies Notdboff, the

greatly displeased the annexationists,
who declare his statements to be untrue.

A Clever Officer Saves a Desperate Crim
Santa Rosa, Oal., may ai.—ueputy
Sheriff Frank Murphy landed Winfield
Basham, on ex-convict, in jail here
about 1 o'clock this morning, and only
the prompt action and sagaciousness of
that official prevented the citizens of
Guerneville from lynching Basham.
Basham had been working at Guerne
ville some time. Monday afternoon he
made an attempt to criminally assault a
little 7-year-old girl of that place. The
girl's screams attracted help, and Bas
ham took refuge under a bed. When
an attempt was made to take him
out he rushed after his pursuer
with a big knife and in the excitement
escaped out of a back window. Deputy
Sheriff Murphy heard of the trouble
Tuesday and at once started after
Basham. He had fled to the mountains,
but Murphy headed him off and at the
point of ol a rifle compelled him to sur
render. Then when Murphy arrived at
Guerneville on the way here he learned
that a number of citizens there had
procured a rope and were about ready
to swing Basham from a bridge over the
Russian river. Murphy avoided them
and came at once to Santa Rosa.
Basham served time in San Quentin for
cutting a man and is wanted in Santa
Clara county for a serious crime. He ia
a very desperate man and is known all
over the state.

Managers of the California La«|n> Held
a Bullae** He*«lon.
Bam Francisco, May 31.—An execu
tive meeting of the directors of the Cali
fornia baseball league was held here
today, Managers Harris, Lindley,
Gieshen, Moore and President J. J,
Moone being present. Tbe resignations
of Messrs, Robinson and Finn were
accepted and Messrs. Gieshen and
Moore appointed to the vacancies.
Manager Harris proposed that a bond of
$1500 be given by tbe management of
each club to insure the league against
any league failing to last the season out.
The proposition precipitated a spirited
discussion, the probable futility of
any such measure being strongly
urged. Other propositions to in-
Bure the financial responsibility
of the various members of the league
were advanced, but none were entirely
satisfactory, and the matter was finally
laid over to next meeting.
Tbe question of charging ladies an ad
mission fee was taken up and a variety
of opinions as to the advisability of
continuing the charge developed. Man
ager Lindley proposed to charge ladies
Sundays only. The directors laid the
matter over without decision.
It was shown that the condition of
the league was excellent, and the pros
pects for baseball were considered very
good. In Stockton alone it was reported

BERING SEA ARBITRATION.
Sir Charles Russell Concludes His
Paris, May 81. —Sir Charles Russell
concluded his argument in behalf of the
British case before the Bering sea
tribunal of arbitration today. He said
tbis was the first occaaion upon which a
nation claimed property in a free-swim
ing animal. The contention waß un
tenable and its advance derogatory to
the freedom of the seas. It was an ex
travagant and unfounded pretension
that internationel law sanctioned the
seizure and condemnation oi tbe vessels
of a friendly power.
Sir Charles appealed to the tribunal
to declare that it could not make law.
In his peroration he dwelt upon the im
portance of the arbitration here sub
mitted to by two great powers, one rep
resenting oid world civilization, great in
extent of domain and greater in its en
during traditions of liberty; the other,
a young but stalwart member of the
family of nations, great also in territoiy
and almost boundless in resources of
genius and the enterprise of its people,
and possessing enormous powers for
good in the future of the human race.
Their presence as friendly litigants is a
fact of great moral significance, and
their submission to arbitration a victory
for peace, as the award will be if it
leaves the principles of international
Attorney General Richard Webster
followed Sir Charles, substantially going
over the letter's arguments.

for an injunction restraining the man
agement of the wor'd'B fair from open

Jenkins and Grosscup sat on the bench.
Chief Justice Fuller was prevented by
the illness of hia daughter from sitting
with them. The firm of Wanamaker &

ferers from all chronic diseases personal
attention and all the advantages of this
new system that has produced such
marvelous cures in San Francisco and
Although the expense will be seversl
thousand dollars, we know that the
large number that we shall treat, the
cures will be so varied, and the good we
shall accomplish will cover so large a
field, that the advertisement will be
double what could be obtained by the
expenditure in any other way. We also
desire to call attention to our well
equipped institute. All we ask in re
turn is for each patient to report to
their sick friends the benefit obtained
by this truly wonderful system.
The scientific knowledge of these
specialists of symptomatology, patholo
gy, materia medica and mental thera
peutics enables them to understand,
locate and hiatorize disease in its incip
iencv, progress and termination, and to
prescribe the proper remedies necessary
for a perfect and permanent cure. Our
medicines—mostly imported—are pure,
safe and free from mineral poisons, and
are prepared under the direct super
vision of Dr. Bryant, and will be fur
nished at cost.
Not only will the patient be surprised
at their wonderful knowledge of disease,
their plain, concise explanation of every
cause and effect, but tbe rapidity with
which they relieve and care the most
obstinate cases by the Bryant system.
It is this system that has robbed the
surgeon's knife of so many fatal opera
tions in cases of tumors, cancerß and
other abnormal growths.
