Large Shipment of Oranges to the
East— Port Costa Suicide Mys
SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 13.— John
J. Clark, the self-confessed bigamist, was
Bent to Folsom to-day to serve out a thres
year sentence, the full limit of the law.
Clark is the man who, while working as
electrical engineer for the gas company in
February of this year, courted and married
a well-to-do young widow of this city, and
afterward left her under pretense of having
to settle up an estate in the East. His
prolonged absence excited her suspicions.
She began to inquire around, and finding
that Clark had a wife in the East, swore
out a warrant for his arrest.
The officers who arrested Clark discov
ered that the woman in the East was not
the only wife he had, but that he had two
others, all of whom were in blissful ignor
ance of the existence of their rivals.
Clark, when brought to trial, pleaded
guilty in the hopes of receiving a light sen
tence. He appeared thunderstruck when
the Judge gave him the extreme penalty.
In passing sentence upon him Judge Cat
lin said :
"1 see no reason in your case why I
should be lenient. You have betrayed a
respectable lady of this city, and during
the first few weeks of your honeymoon,
while protesting the utmost affection for
your bride, you were writing to one of your
wives in the East. You have deceived
these women with apparently no twinge of
IUEXTIFIED AT PORT COST A.
The Body Found in San Pablo Bay Sup-
posed to Be That of Miss Murray.
MARTINEZ, Cal., April 13.— The body
of the woman found in San Pablo Bay,
near Port Costa, Thursday morning, is
thought to that of Miss Teresa Murray,
who jumped from the wharf at Port Costa
into the straits on the night of March 8,
ISP-/. The 'lw>dy cannot be identified ex
cept by a gold breastpin, which was found
pinned to a sacque which the waves had
not torn from the woman's body.*
A sister of Miss Murray, who now lives
at Port Costa, had given the Coroner a
minute description of the clothing and pin
worn by the suicide. This tallies exactly
with the clothing found on the body now
at the Morgue. But when the Coroner in
terviewed the woman at Port Costa she
denied that the body was that of her sister,
and when shown the breastpin claimed she
did not recognize it. An inquest will be
held next week, when further develop
ments are expected.

Before the ashes of the old pavilion had
cooled material for the construction of a
new building was being hauled to the
chosen site adjoining the Arlington
grounds. In one week from the burning
of the old the new pavilion, floating the
American flag and strung with brilliant
pennants without, its interior a bower of
beauty, stands proudly beside the tribunes.
An unfortunate misunderstanding in
regard to the canopy-top ordered for the
new pavilion caused a little delay in its
completion. It has been finished, and, at
a late hour to-night, the decorations are
far advanced, and a small army of men
have settled to their all-night task, which
is to make the building ready to turn over
to the Festival Association on Monday.
The circular dancing-floor— loo feet in
diameter— is covered with white waxed
canvas. The wal's and double platform
for spectators, running around the build
ing, are also draped in white. The entire
ceiling is covered with strips of gold cloth,
pleated together at the center and spread
ing ray -like to the outer circumference. In
the center is a chandelier 16 feet in di
ameter, with 150 incandescent lights, to
which twenty garlands of pink roses are
attached. These are in turn joined to a
fishnet 20 feet wide studded with 30,000 pink
and white roses, presenting an enchanting
effect against the gold ground.
The whole effect of the ceiling is of an
immense flower, the center circle of lights
being the pistil, the rose-garlands and sta
mens and the rose-studded fishnet the en
circling petals. Eighteen chandelier posts,
each capped with a cluster of six incandes
cent lights, rise before the circle of seats.
The center pole is entwined with sniilax.
The music stand, opposite the main en
trance, has a balustrade of potted plants.
Yellow and white draperies line the can
opied passage to the Arlington, and the
canvas-closed corridors of the hotel prom
enade, 250 feet long, are bowered with hun
dreds of potted plants. Steam radiators
connected with the Arlington boilers have
been introduced into the pavilion in case it
should be desirable to heat it on the even
ing of the floral ball, and 4000 incandes
cent lights are strung from the top of the
pavilion to various points in the surround
ing grounds. Gay colored streamers and
Japanese lanterns float in the breeze and
add to the brilliancy of the scene.

BAKERSFIELD, Cal,, April 13.— A
mass-meeting was held this afternoon at 2
o'clock, in Armory Hall, to take action in
regard to the proposed coming of the San
Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railroad.
There was a large attendance, not only the
citizens of Bakersfield, but people from all
parts of the county participating. The
meeting was called to order by S. C. Smith,
who was chosen as permanent chairman.
R. B. Swayne was elected secretary.
Chairman Smith said that the object of
the meeting was well understood. It was
to take steps to offer some encouragement
for the construction of the San Francisco
and San' Joaquin Valley Railroad to this
place. The time had come, said he, to do
something besides street-corner talking.
If Bakersfield wanted the road her people
must do something besides talk.
Judge Brundage's motion that a com
mittee of seven be appointed to receive the
Examiner train when it arrived here next
Wednesday was earned.
' Mr. Weill said that he understood the
object of the meeting was to put the peo
ple of Bakersfield on record in regard to
the new road. He moved that a comm ittee
of seven be appointed to take full charge
of the interests of Bakersfield, as related
to the San Francisco and San Joaquin Val
Messrs. P. H. Allen and G. F. Weeks
were appointed a committee on resolutions
and reported the following resolutions:
Whereas, We the people of Bakersfield and
Kern County, in mass-meeting assembled, re
alize the fact that the construction of the San
Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railroad
means a stimulus to the settlement and de
velopment of that part of the State which will
be traversed, such as can be produced by no
other means; and whereas, we believe that the
construction of the road to Bakersfield will
benefit every resident of that city and of Kern
County, ftnd is a boon which all should en
deavor to secure by every means in their
power; and whereas, we believe that that road
is a business proposition and is being con
ducted on a business basis, and as such is en
titled to ask and receive the material encour
agement and suppprt of every community to
be benefited ; therefore be it
Resolved, That we hereby pledge to the enter
prise the united support of the peoplj of
Bakersfield and Kern County, such support to
take substantial form in the way of procuring
rights of way (as already promised byourSu
pervisors over the public highways), depot
grounds and terminals wherever possible, by
subscriptions to stock, and all other aid that
lies within our power.
The following committee on reception
was appointed: Messrs. Brundage, Keith,
Swayne, Valentine, Hunt, Roberts and
As a general executive committee to rep
resent Bakersfield in all matters connected
with the new road there were named H.

There being no further business before
the meeting, it then adjourned. The
greatest enthusiasm prevails here, and the
people stand ready to meet all reasonable
demands of the road's projectors.

The meeting of agents held to-day was
largely attended, and an extended discus
sion was had, during the course of which
it became plainly evident that no under
standing could be arrived at whereby the
rate war could be stopped.
The meeting adjourned without any
action being taken, for the reason that no
plan for a settlement could be agreed up
on. The effect of the continuation of this
rate war will be that all the residence in
surance of the city will be written up for
three years, and business risks for one year
at any price. Policies that expire in a year
will be turned, surrendered and renewed
for three years at very little cost.
William Mead, a local insurance agent
was given both the school property
and the city hall insurance policies
to write. The aggregate insurance
placed on the school buildings is $256,000,
of which amount $4000 is on the furniture.
This policy is written for a premium of
$1100, which sum is at a discount of 81 1£
per cent from the union rates. The same
agent has written a policy for $54,000 on
the city hall, the premium on the same
being $90, which is a discount of 92 per
cent from union rates. Lower bids were
offered by one or two local agents on the
school buildings' insurance, but their com
panies declined to sustain such agreement.

It is evident that he contemplated suicide

day. At night he burned these and all
private papers at his house.
Thursday was the day after his resigna

cheerfulness, and talked about his future
plans and his belief that he would regain
his lost position and regain com

which he was so deeply interested.
Though he was glad to be relieved of re

morning at 11 o'clock.
The driver, Henry Cole, who was alone,
was driving along slowly, when two
masked men stepped out from the road
side and, pointing a brace of revolvers at
his head, ordered him to halt. Cole's
hands went up promptly. The highway
men then compelled him to throw out
Wells, Fargo & Co.'s treasure-box. This
was done with alacrity, and Cole, thinking
the robbers had secured all they were
after, was about to pick up the reins, when
he was stopped by the gruff command :
"Hold on; we are not through with yon
yet. Get down off that stage and hold up
Cole hesitated a moment. There was
the click of a pistol-hammer, and the ban
dit shouted :
" you, get down, or I'll blow yonr
The driver then sprang from the stage,
and the larger of the two robbers, who
seemed to take the lead in everything,
commanded the smaller to "Keep a bead
on him while I go through him." Cole
was then searched, the robber securing
about $26 in cash. He was then ordered to
get back on the sta; 3 and drive on, and lost
no time in obeying.
After driving out of range Cole stopped
the horses and watched the movements
of the robbers. They put the treasure-box
in a sack and carried it between them to
where their horses were tied, nearly a half
mile away. There they burst it open.
The box contained $571 93 in checks and
$55 in cash. The robbers then mounted
their horses and rode rapidly northward
witn their booty.
Cole drove as fast as possible to Norman
and gave the alarm, and soon every
one who could scare up a horse, cart or
conveyance of any kind was out in pursuit
of the robbers. As they had but an hour's
start and are on the open plains, it is very
likely they will be captured.
Cole describes the larger man as being
about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches in height and
weighing about 170 pounds. He wore a
large black slouch hat and heavy shoes.
The small man was sparely built, 5 feet 6
or 7 inches in height and weighed about
130 pounds. He also wote a dark slouch
hat. Both men wore blue overalls and
jumpers. Their faces were covered with
masks of black cloth. The large man rode
a bay and the other a brown horse.
In some way the robbers must have
ascertained that money would be carried
on the stage to-day. It is seldom that
any is shipped over this line, and the offi
cers are endeavoring to find out how the
robbers were made aware that the treasure
box was to go through to-day. Their
booty was all in checks, with the exception
of the $55 in cash which the box contained,
and the $26 taken from Cole. It is thought
probable that the men got a train at some
station to the north, and telegrams have
been sent along the line of the railroad
company warning the officers to be on the
lookout for the men.
