Captain Larson Says He Will Man

SAN DIEGO, Cat., April 9.— The
schooners Sequoia, Captain Larson, and
Mary E. Rows, Captain Blorn, have been
delayed in port several days fighting the
demands of the Seamen's Union for $35 per
month wages The Sequoia's owner is a
member of the Ship-owners' Association,
which is bound to pay not over $25. and
Captain Larson says he will never concede

Borlin shadowed Captain Larson all day

Captain Blom held out against the de

impossible to get the vessel out; then he

Sharp tricks were played by the sailors

The Wheatland Tram-Robbers Said to Be

day by a report that the Wheatland train
robbers had been seen in the neighbor
hood. About 10 o'clock Dr. Cole started
out in the country to call on a patient. On
his way he met a little girl who was badly
frightened. He took her up in his buggy
and she told him she had seen two big
men on bay horses riding furiously along
the road toward the mountains. Their
torses were covered with foam and they
appeared about worn out. She said the
men -were rather ehort and heavy set. and
that they wore masks over the upper part
of their faces. They were riding in the
public road, but when they saw a rig ap
proaching with two men in it they turned

Otter Hunters Say San Xicolas Island

SANTA BARBARA, Cal. , April 9.— The

port last night from San Nicolas Island
where she stopped to take on board a party
of otter hunters who had been on the
island since December 1. The first- ques
tion asked by these hunters, who have
been entirely cut off from communication
with the world since they went on the
island, was whether there had been a
Bhock of earthquake on the mainland the
night of March 9 as San Nicolas was

Wind Slew Fifty Miles an Hour Around
TACOMA, Wash., April 9.— At sp. m.
i! is city was struck by a severe wind
storm coming from the direction of the
iVlumbia River. The wind blew about
fifty miles an hour. Almost immediately
it began to hail. This continued for ten
minutes. Then followed an eastern thun
derstorm, which is always a novelty in this
ion. For ten minutes thunder and
itning alternated in quick succession
and a heavy rain fell.
The chief damage was done to telegraph
and telephone wires. To-night the West
ern Union lines are down over localities to
Frokane and north to Seattle. The postal
wires are down north and south, but many
linemen are out and it is expected to re
cover them before midnight. Both wires
being down to the north has delayed news
from the mine disaster at New Whatcom.
Some of the long-distance telephone wires
were knocked down by falling timber. The
heavy wind blew down an awning on Ta
coma avenue which struck large plate
glass windows, breaking them and causing
a loss of $300.
The storm struck the steamer Flyer on
her afternoon trip to Seattle just off Pulley
Point. One of the passengers said that
the sound was a mass of foam as far as the
eye could see. The wind churned the
water till it was as white as cotton, he
said: "Off A lki Point a capsized sailboat
was seen with a white man and a squaw
clinging to it. A boat was put out and
the couple rescued. The man was barely
able to talk, but said they had been in the
water nearly an hour. The squaw was the
better off of the two."
At Seattle the steamers Sehome and
Northern Pacific and two smaller craft
had been blown loose from their moorings
and were alongside the Flyer's dock so
that boat had to tie up at Yesler's wharf.
PORTLAND'S GRAND JURY.}
A Judge of the Superior Court Rebukes
the Members for Indictments.
PORTLAND, April 9.— Several days ago
the Grand Jury returned twenty separate
indictments against keepers of gambling
houses, and to-day two of these cases came
to trial. The defendants were acquitted.
Judge Stevens of the State Circuit Court
then took occasion to deliver a severe re
buke to the Grand Jury for multiplying
fees in the different cases. He said :
"Among other things, gentlemen, that
were included in this court's instructions
at the outset, was that this jury was told
especially to find an indictment where
such evidence was presented before you as
would insure conviction before a trial jury
in this court. Unless there is a warrant
for it no indictment should be returned
where it is not conclusive that the evidence
in the ease will secure a conviction. A
few days ago you returned to this court a
batch of twenty indictments for gambling.
We have tried two of these cases, and to
say the least they have been mere farces
so far aa conviction in this court is con
cerned. The court cannot understand why
these parties should have been indicted on
such poor evidence.
"Those twenty gambling cases should
have been returned in one indictment. I
feel it incumbent upon me to speak of
these matters, and I repeat that I am
amazed at the results in these cases of
which I have spoken."
The Grand Jury then returned "not true
bills" in the cases of six women who were
charged with keeping disorderly houses.
Re-mains Taken to Los Angeles.
PASADENA, Cal., April 9.— The re
mains of J. W. Wolverton, who was lost in
the mountains on Sunday, have finally
been recovered, and were taken to Los
Angeles this afternoon where the inquest
will be held. The body was found at the
base of the 200-foot precipice to the top of
which the party had traced his footsteps
act night. With the greatest difficulty
the men finally succeeded in lowering
themselves into the canyon by the aid of
ropes, and raising the body to the top,
whence they proceeded to the foot of
the mountains by trail. The unfortunate
man was about 25 years of age and un
married. He came here from Ohio. His
relatives have been notified.

Some Say Hamilton Was to Blame,
but the Prisoner Has a Very
RIVERSIDE, Cal., April 9.— Charles
Marshall, the only survivor of the bloody
shooting affray which took place at San
Jacinto last night, was landed in jail here
at 4 o'clock this afternoon by Sheriff John
son. Andrew Larsen, the innocent by
stander who was shot, died this morning,
and Frank Hamilton, who had the quarrel
with Marshall, died at noon.
Sheriff Johnson states that the stories
about the shooting are conflicting. Mar
shall and his friends claim that Hamilton
was the aggressor, he firing the first shot,
while the other side say that Marshall was
the aggressor. The shooting, as near as
can be ascertained, was caused by Mar
shall interfering in a settlement of money
affairs between Hamilton and a saloon
keeper named Widney.
Marshall, after having words with
Hamilton went away, but soon returned
with a pistol and at once began shooting.
He fired six shots, three taking effect.
Hamilton fired five shots, only one of which
took effect, the shots shattering Marshall's
arm. He does not bear the best reputation
and as he has been in other shooting
scrapes he was generally feared. On the
other hand Hamilton was well liked. He
was Deputy Sheriff of this county under
the last administration.
When the Sheriff left San Jacinto with
his prisoner the citizens were greatly
excited and it is probable that Marshall's
preliminary examination will be held here.
The latter does not say much, but says he
is satisfied he can clear himself. Sheriff
Johnson says there was some talk of lynch
ing Marshall when he reached San Jacinto.

FARMING WILL BE BELIEVED OF HEAVY BURDENS
The Valley Road May Be Able to Handle This Year's Grain and
Fruit at Reduced Rates.
The Board of Directors of the San Francisco and San Joaquin
Valley Railway have acted very wisely in selecting the east side of
the San Joaquin Valley and in starting southward from Stockton.
The east side of the valley is most productive, because all the
moisture from the mountains comes down through it into the San
Joaquin River. Several large streams passing through it are trib
utary to the San Joaquin, and from them canals can be run over the
land for irrigating purposes, making it an exceedingly productive
country. Stockton is the great grain center and the .San Joaquin
the great grain-producing valley. And through Stockton's manufac
turing interests and waterways great support will be given the new
By starting from Stockton I think the road will be able to
handle a large share of the grain and fruit product of the Eastern
San Joaquin Valley this coming fall. Undoubtedly this will be a
boon to the farmers, as it will enable them to get their produce to
market at a rate much lower than they ever before enjoyed. So they
will have an opportunity of feeling the effects of competition this
year. If the farmer can save 30 or 40 per cent of the freight he
has been paying while he got no profit from his ranch, he will be
able to get something for his labor. The Valley road will accom
plish this much for him, and, of course, the effect will be to make
ranching in the San Joaquin Valley profitable.
I believe the farmers will be apt to pledge the new road almost
their unanimous support, which will certainly insure the road a
large amount of business. JAMES CROSS.
Coast Association of fire chiefs, which is
to be held in this city next week, will have

of Los Angeles will give them a banquet.
AVTHORITY FROM POJtTLAJSJi.
A figeon-Fander Take* Exception to the
Speed Credited From San Francisco.
PORTLAND, Or., April 9. — W. W.
Bretherton of this city, who is a recognized
authority on such subjects, takes exception
to dispatches from San Francisco regard
ing the speed of pigeons Hying between
San Francisco and Portland. Mr. Breth
erton said :
"There have been several notices lately
of some homing pigeons that were training
for a race from San Francisco to Portland,
a distance claimed to be 700 miles, and it
has been stated that in a training race the
birds have flown the distance in nine
hours. This is such a smashing of all
records of the world it has excited a lively
interest in the race in all the pigeon
fanciers of the East, and several of them
have written to me to know more about
these wonderful birds.
"In Belgium, where the flying of pigeons
is carried to perfection, they claim as the
best record 610 miles, from St. Sebastian,
Spain, to Yerviers, Belgium, in eighteen
hours and twenty-two minutes, which is
not worth noticing alongside of 700 miles
in nine hours."

TACOMA, Wash., April 9.— The fight be

vent Tacoma Grocery Company to compel
the old officials of that concern to turn
over the books and accounts into his keep
ing came up for hearing in the Superior
Court to-day, when some affidavits of an
unusually sensational nature were filed.
H. Cranston Potter, a stockholder, in an
affidavit alleges that Charles E. Hale, pres
ident, and H. B. Vanderhoof, another offi
cer, "jobbed" Receiver Joab. He says he
asked these gentlemen about certain en
tries in the ledger which had been turned
over to the receiver. The gentlemen re
plied that the record in Joab's hands was
made up for the purpose of giving the re
ceiver something to play with ; that, he had
been crying for a ledger, so they fixed up
one for him. They further said the entries
were fictitious and fraudulent, and not the
record of the company.
Potter further makes oath that the min
ute-book of the corporation has been falsi
fied, altered, change'! w 1 mutilated, and
that he believes this was done by Hale and
Vanderhoof, whose names he declares are
signed to the record. He avers that the
book does not show the true proceedings of
the corporation, and that if the records are
any longer left in the hands of these offi
cials they will be so changed and despoiled
as to show a condition of affairs other than
what they really are.
To-day one of the stockholders and his
attorney held a consultation with th,e pros
ecuting attorney over the matter and Re
ceiver Joab has stated that they wanted to
get an information filed charging the old
officers of the company with tampering
with the records.

that this is due to the formation of a

BAKERSFIELD, Cal., April 9.— Last
evening Deputy County Assessor Lucien
Crusoe met George C. Gorham Jr., a well
known attorney, on the street and
asked him to go ud in his (Gorham's) of
fice, as he wanted to have a little conversa

did not care to have any such interview,
whereupon Crusoe knocked him down and
began kicking him in the face and body.
Bystanders quickly pulled Crusoe away,
but not till he had hurt Gorham so that the
latter is now confined to his bed.
Gorham is said to have been armed, but
the attack was so sudden he had no chance
to draw a weapon. The cause of the trouble
has a political foundation, and dates back
to the last campaign, when Crusoe ran in
dependent for County Clerk and was
beaten. On Monday Gorham appeared be
fore the Supervisors and argued against
the payment of experts, now and for a
long while employed on the county books,
at a rate of more than $5 a day. Crusoe's
brother is one of the experts, and it is said
the argument was directed against him
particularly. Crusoe was arrested, but al
