"I WAS DRUNK WHEN I DID IT."
Valdonado's ConfVssiou to De
tective lnsley Introduced.
The Train Wrecker Was Seen to Place
the Stone on the Track.
Thing* Look Bad for the Valdonado
Brother*—They Were Urank ami
Made No Effort to Coier Up
Their Tracks.
The trial of the Valdonado brothers'
charged with attempting to wreck a
train on the Terminal railroad on the
14th of last October, was resumed yester
day before Judge Smith and a jury in
department one.
Glover Widney, a young man residing
at Garvanza, testified that upon tbe
date of the alleged offence he and a com
panion were on their way home, when
he heard a noise as if some one was
pounding the rails. He went towards
the Bpot wbere tbe noiße came from and
aaw Francisco Valdonado placing a big
stone npon the track. When Valdonado
•aw the witness he ran away up the
track, and witness heard him say:
"They put me off the train ; I no money ;
I fix them." Witness then heard some
one tell bim to hurry up, and witness
removed the stone from the track. After
going on a short distance, witness
looted back and Valdonado once more
platced the stone across the rails. Then
witness went to Sheriff Culver's house
uud informed him of the occurrence.
TV>«F brought the stone away with them.
Vetective lusley, to whom the credit
is due of having captured the would-be
wreckers, took the witness-stand and
testfit'd to arresting the prisoners upon
the ni.'lit of the occurrence.
Tbey went to the New York Kitchen
for supper before going to the jail. On
the way to the latter place witness said 1
toFrancisv»: "Well, you boys are in
a bad fix; that train had been five
minutes earl. ; er you might bave killed a
lot of neop4e. w
Francisco replied: "\es, we are in a
bad fix. 1 was drunk when I did it;
d-n it."
The defense tried hard to prevent the
introduction of thia testimony, but tho
urt overruled their objections, aud the
niession went in.
The remainder of tbe afternoon was
copied in the examination of character
messes for tbte defense, after which
c case wae continued until this morn

THAT WATER SUIT.
Bow the City Attorney Kegards th*
Cast) at yrrifot.
The transler of tbe suit of the Crystal
Pprings Water company againat ihe city
of Loe Auntie" to the federal conrt w:ia
something startling to the public. The
city attorney yeaterday had little to say
about it. The office of the city attorney
is one, he hold?, that is circumscribed
to a great extent. Ii he wants to begin
a suit he has got to go before the council
and ask permission of that body before
be can file a single paper in tho case.
It is to be cccii, therefore, that hie hands
are virtually tied and himself debarred
from exercising such tactics as if he were
merely engaged iv civil practice. Juet
as coon aa lie got the order to commence
the euit to quiet title to the property,
away went the Crystal Springs company
and began the euit itaeli; and began it
in a federal court at that, evidently being
in no great hurry or anxiety lor a de
cision upon the point, aa it is well
known that plaintiffs in hard fought
suits begun in the United Stales courtß
die of old age, while defendants dry up
and blow away, before the supreme
tribunal passes on the question.
A Tonic That Onl.-ts Hi" Nerves.
Not all the sedatives and nerve foods aud
narcotics, Id which thia axe of medical ds
covery ia so prolific, cau restore quiet lo ths
nerves permanently, so long as ilia tranquility
of thoau sensitive organs are distuibed by lr«
regular digestion. When the food la uot ade
quately digesttd and assimilated, a tonic or in,
yigorating effect is uot exerted upon them
they remain weak and unstrung, and nightly
repose ;s disturbed and fitful. Beginning at

LAID TO REST.
The Funeral of Misa Mate Foreeter OB
Thuradoy.
The funeral of Miss Mac Forester took
place from the home of ber parents,
Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Forester, Thursday
afternoon at 2 o'clock, service being con
ducted by Dr. J. W. Campbell, pastor of
the deceased, assisted by Dr, Hntcbins
| of the First Congregational chnrch, tbis
I city. The esteem in which Miss For
' ester was held waa manifested in the
1 large attendance of sorrowing friends
; who met to pay the last tribute and do
I honor to her who in life had been a
I power in all tbe circles in whicb Bbc
! moved. Tbe beautiful remains, as if
| asleep, lay encased in pure white, with
sweet violets strewn about thecasket in
! delicate grace. Tbe wails and reception
I rooms, made so gloomy by tbe shadow
which hung about the home, were con
i verted by loving hand* into bowers of
, eunebine by the flowers the departed
| cherished so well, and, if possible, made
the visitation of sorrow less severe.
A large number and variety of floral '
i tributes and designs were sent by in
; dividual friends and different organiza
tions of wbicb tbe deceased was a
member. Among them were a large
t<arp of rose buds and ferns by the
1 cho. r , a floral heart by tbe primary clasa
and a design of violet* tied witb a great
bow of white ribbon from the Epworth
Iwagne, ail of the First M. E. church.
I The Arar club sent a large floral pillow,
| anh the news and working boy* aster
'of white immortelles, on wbich was in
S scribed in purple, "Our May."
The funeral ritual was sweet and im
pressive, tbe remarks of Dr. Campbell
:so tender and pathetic, bringing tears
to every eye. The singing was Tendered j
by tbe Arar club, of which the deceased
was a member, and never was soul
wafted on sweeter strains than Nearer
to Thee. A large procession followed
the remains to Rosedale cemetery,
where they were placed in tbe vault.
Although so deeply stricken, Mr. and
Mrs. Forester are filled with gratitude
to the many friends who so cheerfully
and tenderly surrounued them by sym
pathetic words and loving deeds, seek
-1 ing to alleviate their Borrows and bind
| their broken hearts.
