FOUR WOUNDED CONVICTS.
The Injured Men at Folsom
in a Sorry Plight.
George Sontag Assumes an Air
of Injured Innocence.
AH the Blame for the Break Placed
on Convict Williams.
Tho Chances for Recovery Are) In Sontag's
Favor—Convict Sohell BnfTering
Greatly—Abbott a Much
By the Associated Press.
Sacramento, July 29. —A special to
the Bee from Folsom says: In the hos
pital lie four wounded men, Sontag, Ab
bott, Schell and Dnffy. They mike no
complaint except yonng Schell, who Is
so terribly wounded through the lanes.
Oeorge Sontag is partly under the influ
ence of opiates, which renders him
partly insensible to pain.
"I did not know anything about it til)
Tuesday noou," Sontag gtill pritesta
with an air oi injured innocence. "It
was Williams who first led me into it.
He told me I could get ont if I would
only come np to the upper quarry at 3
o'clock. He said I didn't care anything
for my liberty if I wouldn't take such an
easy way of getting it. We did not in
tend to hurt Briare, or any other man.
We thonght Briare would take ns right
past tbe lines."
Sontag's kr.ee is almost blown off and
the ends of the bones which join at the
knee are badly splintered, tint unless
inflammation begins, Dr. Eagle says he
will not have to amputate the limb.
There has been very little change in bis
condition bat the chances for recovery
are perhaps in his favor.
Abbott is not very badly injured, -bnt
a more disgusted man it would be hard
to find. He is disgusted with bimself
and everybody else. He declare*) that
not one of the men knew how to handle
gans, but the way that the ballets
whistled about the posts and tbe men
standing in the open, does not bear the
truth of his words very well.
Both Sontag and Abbott were dnmb
when the subjeot of arms and ammuni
tion was broached. Abbott also accused
the dead men of being the prime movers
in tho affair.
Schell seemed to improve somewhat
yesterday morning, but today he ia said
to be dying. It is a matter of surprise
to the doctor and the officers of the
prison that he has not succumbed long
wntotti' ttmrn Fc-fWra "oneoo reports
tonigOt lhat the conditio?! of the con
victs wounded in Tuesdays battle re
mains unchanged. Yonng Schell, who
was wounded accidentally and who it
was thought would die, is if any thing
better, and the prison physician* now
think he will reoover.
J. T. Bruce, the brakeman who waa
shot by • tramp at Gold Run, ia also
better and Itia thought be may recover.
The officers think the would-be mur
der will coon be caught, aa he is well
known along the road. The reward for
big capture has now reached $800.
EVANS AND SONTAG.
An Operation Performed on John—Chris
Fresno, Juno 29. —An operation was
performed ou John Sontag today, and a
portion of tbe shattered bone removed.
A drainage tube was inserted and tbe
month of the wound opened. ;He stood
the operation well, and at present the
chances for his recovery are improved.
There are no indication of blood poison
ing. The chances a r o that a further
operation may be necessary, but the
physicians have no intention to ampu
tate his arm at present.
Evans is doing well. He is cheerful
and chats freely with those he likes.
A PKNSIOS DECISION.
Good News for Women Who Mlniatered
to Sick Soldiers.
Washington, June 29. —Assistant Sec
retary Reynolds of the interior depart
ment has made a pension decision
which will be welcome news to a large
number of women who ministered to
wounded soldiers daring the late war.
They are to be placed on the pension
rolls. The question arose upon a com
munication from the commissioner of
pensions as to whether those women
who superintended the diet oi sick and
wounded soldiers were entitled to pen
sions nnder the provisions of the nurses
act. Assistant Secretary Reynolds holds
that these persons are entitled to pen

UNCLE SAU DEFEATED.
An Important Land Grant Cate Deelded
Tucson, Ariz., Jnne 29.—Judge Sloane
disposed cf an important Inn 1 grant case
in the district court today, wh'ch in
volved 100,000 acres. Toe salt was
broughtby the government against the
owners of the Cal tbasaa grant in Pima
county, to restrain the owners from
fencing in any portions of the grant.
The defendants made a motion to dis
solve the injunction, claiming that they
had vested rights and that the govern
ment had no right to assert the preroga
tive of public domnin over the property
in question. Judge Sloane sustained
the motion and dismissed the snit of the
government. No nppoal will be taken.

The attendance today was 137,877, of
which 107,76f> were paid.

North Dakota; and a paper was read by
Secietary of Agriculture J. Sterling Mor
Vice-President Stevenson, tired out
with a long day at the fair yesterday,
slept in the administration bnilding last

The world's fair officials authorize the
statement that there is no truth in the
report that the government is deter
mined to pay out the $570,1X10 reserve
belonging to tbe exposition from the
United States appropriation. How the
report that the government intended to
iesae thie money in souvenir coins, thus
practically throwing them on the mar
ket, started, the officials do not know,
bnt it is authoritatively denied.
The committee of the board of lady
managers, appointed to select a national
flower, decided to open a booth near the
west entrance of the women's building,
July 4th, for the purpose of a popular
vote on the selection of a flower.
Oovernor Altgeld Baroert la Effigy at
Chicago, June 29. —Governor Alt
geld's action in pardoning the anar
chists is evidently not well received in
Napierville, 111. Some people in that
town last night hang an effigy of tbe
governor acrosß the principal street and
it was not cut down until this morning.
The governor was in the city today and,
speaking about the question of bis citi
zenship, said he was not alarmed about
it; that his father was naturalized when
he (the governor) was a very yonng boy.

they attacked and repulsed the Chinese,
killing 150. The French loss was one
killed and several wounded.

THE STRINGENCY IN MONEY
Big Rates for Call Loans in
A Clearing House Syndicate to
Philadelphia Banks Desperately Hard
Up tor Cash.
The Plnoh Strongly Felt Jn Boeton.
Heavy Tranaaotlona ln Govern
ment Bonds—Savlnge Banks
Selling Their Holding..
By the Aaaoclated Press.l
Naw York, Jnly 29.—Tho rates for
call loans today reached the highest
figures since tbe present stringency set
in. They rose to 3-10 per cent per diem
and interest, equal to about 74'j per
cent per annum. The pinch was par
ticularly severe thia morning. Efforts
were made to have the clearing house
banks take oat large amounts of loan
certificates to tide over the first of the
month, a critical period, and they
proved successful, as the banks asked
lor and tlie loan committee issued $<"»,
--800,000 certificates, the largest amonnt
for many days. There are thns far oat
standing certificates to the amount of
$13,330,000. This relieved the market,
and there was a drop in rate to 0 per
cent per annum, and a rally to 20 per
Dealings in time money and mercan
tile paper were practically at a stand
still. The stringency in money is de
moralizing the sterling exchange market,
and selling rates fell below gold iraporb
ing points. Bankers were liberal sellers
in bills in order to take c.d vantage of the
higher rates for money.
A CLEARING-HOUSE fi INDICATE.
This morning the clearing-house com
mittee virtually formed a syndicate by
agreeing to take out a lot of clearing
house loan certificates for the purpose
of patting a stop to high rates for
money and the panic that has virtually
existed in the" money market. Some
banks, the Gallatin and Fourth National
for instance, had never taken ont loan
certificates before, and had no need to
do so now, except for the moral effect.
By taking ont certificates though, it en
ables them to lend ont large sums of
money without entrenching the cash in
their vaults. As the result of the com
mittee's deliberations, an issne of $9,
--000,000 certificates was authorized, and
alt the memberr of tbe loan committee
avwled ol opportunity,
in proportion to tneit capital, except
the Chemical and the Importers and
Traders' National banks. It is thought
they will take ont certificates later.
TRADING IN GOVBRBMBNT BONDB.
Dealers say transactions in govern
ment bonds were done on an enormous
scale recently. One authority estimates
the sales for the past fortnight by sav
ings banks and kindred institutions at
about $4,000,000. National banks were
the purchasers, and full prices were paid
in every instance.
AFFAIRS IN PHILADELPHIA.
The condition in Philadelphia bank
ing circles is becoming more marked.
According to advices received from Phil
adelphia this morning New York ex
change in that city rs at half a cent on
the dollar. Several large banks in this
city have large balances owing them in
Philadelphia banks which the latter are
unable to remit on account of inability
to procure New York exchange or cur
rency. One New York bank has $750,-
I 000 tied up in Pniladelphia in tbat way ;
another $600,000 and another $500,000,
and the question is becoming a serious
one. Unless Philadelphia banks remit
this week, it is probable, according to
some Now York bankers, that a discount
will be charged on all Philadelphia ex
change received from dealers here.
THK STRAIN IN BOSTON.
Boston, June 29.—The strain on the
financial situation today was severer
j than ever. Stocks were demoralized at
' the start. Liquidation was extremely
i heavy, and under the pressure prices
| tumbled badly. Banks were calling
j loans on all Bides, and some of tbe best
i houses on the street had to pay abnor
mally high rates to get carried through.
A BIG DEAL CLOSED.
The Bonanza Minn <tt Harqua Bala Sold
Redlands, June 29. —A. G. Hubbard
of Redlands closed the sale today of the
Bonanza mine at Harqua Hala, Ariz., to
an English syndicate. The price is
nearly $2,000,000. Hubbard and George
W. Bowers of San Francisco, who died
three weeks ago, bought tbe mine
two years ago for $20,000. Tbey
put up a mill and h.tve taken out $1,
--000,000 in gord during the first year. A
lawsuit was had with parties who at
tempted to jump the mine. A patent
to the property was granted a few weeks
ago. The Golden Eagle mine ia included
in the sale. It haa been worked but
little, and is supposed to be very rich.
Chicago, June 29.—Today's session of
the Inter-Collegiate Prohibition conven
tion was devoted chiefly to the discus
sion of a paper on Government Control
of Public Corporations, by John Elliot
of Yale, and one on Reform Imperative,
by L. C. Bentley of Dapauw university.
A number of addresses were delivered
today and this evening.
Not a Caee of Suicide.
Santa Ana, June 29.—[Special.]—J.
C. Faulkner did not commit suicide, but
died from heart disease. An examina
tion of the stomach disclosed thia fact,
although no chemical analysis was
made. The coroner's jnry brought in a
verdict of death from natural causes.

SAVATIONISTS IN COURT.
Thirty-Ore Arreste Under a San Joee j
San Jose, Jnne 29.—Thirty-five Salva
tionists arrested for parading the streets
contrary to the city ordinance, appeared
before Justice Class thia morning at 10
o'clock for arraignment. H. G. More
house, their attorney, entered a plea of
not guilty for all, and asked that only
Capt. Albert Wray be held under bonds, j
and further that he be taken in custody by
the chief of police. The request was
granted and their trial waa eet for Jnly
19th. As aoon aa Wray was taken in
custody by the officer, Mr. Morehouse
presented an application to Judge Lori
gan for a writ of habeas corpus, which
waa granted, inatrncting the chief of po
lice to bring the defendant Wray in
court tomorrow morning for a hearing
on the writ. The grounds for the writ
are that the mayor and council have no
power to make such an ordinance that
it discriminates a religious body, and ia
contrary to the constitution of the state
and the general law of the land.
TUX MID-WINTER FAIR.

recoinupjnded. A committee of three
was appointed to make nominations for
a permanent execntive committee of
nine, which shall have the management
of the fair. Preparations for the expo

plan of organization is complete and
there appears to be no doubt that ample

CAPTURED BY THE CON.
ANOTHER WOULD-BE TRAIN ROB
BER COMBS TO GRIEF.
A Nervy Conductor Beats a Bandit Into
Sabmlsslon and Disarms Him.
The Prisoner Loaded with
Arkansas City, Kan., Jnne 29. —An
other train robber came to grief today.
A rongh-looking character boarded a
north-bound passenger train at Okla
homa City, carrying a large parcel.
After the train waa well out of town he
went into the toilet room and Boon
emerged with a Winchester in hand,
held up the condnctor, compelled him to
atop the train and then ordered him to
Igo SWSrf to fits engine. Astfrey «te vped
to the ground the robber allowed his
gaze and gun to slightly slip. The agile
conductor fe'led him with a blow on the
jaw and beat him into submission with
his own gun He was placed in jail at
Wichita. He was equipped with two
sacks of dynamite besides the gun.
BERING SEA ARBITRATION.
Mr. Phelps Makes a Sroojr Argument for
the United States.
Paris, June 29.—PhelpB, in continu
ing his argument before tbe Bering sea
j tribunal today, d'voted most of his
time to the amplication of his argument
regarding the right of nations to protect
all marine animals in which they have
property rights. He referred to the pro
tection accorded by Great Britain to the
coral and pearl oyster industries, and by
Norway to the whalea in its fjordß.
Phelps argued that the three-mile limit
was the minimum line of self-defense
and not the maximum. Jurisdiction,
he contended, may extend much far
ther than the three-mile limit when it
is necessary to protect a special national
AN IMPORTANT ARREST.
A Canadian Forger Overhauled at Salem,
Boston, June 29.—Elias Mailleux, a
Canadian, charged with forgery, form
erly an accountant in the public works
department of the province of Quebec,
has been arrested in Salem. The arrest
is very important. It will bring to light
facts of forgeries perpetrated on the
province of Quebec government in the
month of June, 1892, since which time
the Canadian authorities have been do
ing their beßt to capture Mailleux, with
out success. Mailleux haa been in
Soutn America, Germany, California

Washington, June 29.—Consultation
between Cleveland and members of hit
cabinet today caused considerable eos>
sip. Tbe report spread that Cleveland
was consulting with reference to tho
id taability of calling an extra session
earlier than September, but there ia no
foundation for the story. There is
reason to believe that Cleveland intends
leaving the city within a few days for a
long stay at Hazard's bay, and tbat he
and the cabinet are merely arranging;
FI'RTHER DErp.aSSION OIF BII.VU.
Secretary Carlisle today received nam
eroua callers, among whom were many
members of congress. With all these
the silver question formed tbe principal
topic of conversation, and the continued
decline of the price of silver was natur
ally adverted to. The secretary had re
ceived a cablegram stating the price of
silver today in London waa 68>£
centa per ounce, at which rate
a silver dollar as bullion ia worth 53
cents. It is nevertheless apparent that
the purchasing power of a silver dollar,
with silver bullion at OS 1 ., cents per
ounce, ia aa great today as when silver
was worth $1.22 per onnce and the bul
lion value of a dollar 93 cents. It should
be equally obvioua that thia ia ao be
cause it is known that the credit oi the
United Stateeia behind its silver money,
ac it is behind all its other forms of
money, and without which none of
them, except gold coin and gold certifi
• ten, would be worth par in the money
marketa of the world. This fact waa
several times emphasized at tbe last
session of congress, when ex-Secretary
Sherman and others repeatedly de
clared during the senate debates, that
there was in the treasury bullion gold
to tbe value of every silver certificate
isaued by the government.
SECRETARY HERBERT'S OPINIONS.
Secretary of the Navy Herbert, who
is thoroughly familiar with the Populist
movement in the south, Baid today he
thought the Populists were not now
making any progress in tbe conntry, and
tbat tbe teachings of those engaged in
agitation would not have any influence
in shaping the policy of the Democratic
Speaking of silver, the secretary said:
"I think the stoppage of tbe free coin
age of silver in India the greatest blow
given the Sherman law and free coinage
of eilver. Free coinage of silver in
India has been pointed to aa an object
lesson by tbe advocates of free coinage
in thia country. Now that the coinage of
eilver ia thns voluntarily atopped, with
the consent of India, it tumbles both
arguments that silver currency was a
benefit to the i;irmers of India and that
exchange was on a system for the ben
fit of England.
"Do you think the silver question
presents serious danger to the Dem
cratic party at this time?"
"I think affairs have reached a cris
and the party in power will be judfol
by the wisdom they show in giving thu
nation a sound currency."
SENATOR JONES TALES.
The Nevada Btateamim Doubts the A*--
peal of the Sherman
Naw York, June 29. —Senator Jonea cf
Nevada thie evening said: "I doubt
very much if the Sherman act can be
repealed at thj extra session. It cer
tainly can not be wiped out unless ■
substitute satisfactory to tbe advocate*
of free coinage ia provided. Should cor. •
grese succeed in effecting the repp,
without granting such a substitute, thete
will surely be a breaking away from the
old parties of men who believe the fr
coinage of silver the best method of
solving the financial problem. A silver
party will be formed, and i', will prove
