The Veterans Pass in
Review Before the
FIVE HUNDRED IN LINE.
Militiamen, Civic Societies,
Officials and Civilians
PRAISED BY THE EXECUTIVE.
Profuse in His Compliments for the
Splendid Showing Made by
SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 23.— The
California and Nevada department of the
Grand Army of the Republic have taken
Sacramento by storm, and their triumph
ant parade thia morning was the largest
they have ever had upon the coast. Fully
600 grizzled veterans marched in a solid
phalanx through the city, with the same
old swinging march step so familiar to
them in years gone by. when marching
forward to meet a Southern foe.
As the martial strains of the various
bands reached the ears of the warriors, the
present rolled away like a cloud before the
south wind, the infirmities of age were
forgotten and they were youths again,
passing in review before their sweethearts,
mothers and wives, before leaving for the
front to combat the stern realities of war.
Then followed visions of camp lite, forays
into the encmey's lines, the shrill scream
of the minie bullet, the hoarse roar of the
battery and the sound of bursting shells.
Again they stormed the wbllb of Fort
Donaldson and faced death in all its hor
rors; and as they passed in review before
the executive and his staff they seemed
once more the victorious force that had
carried some hard fought field and were
returning with victory perched upon their
The parade started from the corner of
Tenth and L streets at 10:80 o'clock, and
was headed by a platoon of police on foot.
They were followed by General Tozer, the
grand marshal, and his staff, consisting
of O. P. Dodge, J. H. Davis, L. A. Jacox,
A. D. Hurd, J. S. Becker, R. Lannert,
G. H. Clark, C. Campbell, M. J. Gastman,
W. H. Ambrose, H. Kimbrough, J. Broins,
H. E. Arne and S. Leake. Then came the
Second Infantry Regiment of Sacramento
and Auburn, a fine appearing body of
young men, who bore themselves with the
martial air of veterans. They were under
the command of Colonel Guthrie, and did
credit to his careful training and exacting
discipline. Battery B followed, dis
mounted, and with drawn sabers following
the Second came the Bersaglieri Guards,
in all their martial plumage, accompanied
by a vivandiere. This is probably the
last appearance in parade of the independ
ent Italian company, as it is rumored that
Governor Budd has decided not to allow
them future privileges of this nature.
The second division was headed by
Stephen Hopkins. His aids were TV. L.
Mattlock, Luther Weber and W. Larkin.
Governor Budd and hie staff followed. His
Excellency is a magnificent horseman and
rides like a centaur. No amount of jump
ing and prancing on the part of his spirited
animal seemed to disturb his saddle-seat.
The equestrianism of his staff, however,
was in marked contrast.
Next came the Sons of Veterans' posts
and carriages containing department offi
cers, members of the Women's Relief
Corps and Ladies of the Grand Army, and
followed by a joyous band of youthful rep
resentatives from the public schools.
The third division, commanded by Mar
shal Harvie, with F. Lafferty, C. Nemetz
and J. Ing as aids, was composed of the
societies of Foresters, Native Sons, Red
Men and the German civic societies of Sac
ramento, who were under the command of
F. Ruhstaller; F. C. Yoerk, A. Heilbron
and F. Guenther, aids.
The fourth division was under the com
mand of J. M. Henderson,. assisted by 1.
Christy and George B. Stock, and was
composed of State officials, County Super
visors and officials, the Mayor and City
Trustees, all in carriages.
The review was over thirty minutes in
passing a given point under rapid march.
Governor Budd was profuse in his praise
in speaking of the parade. He said that it
was one of the largest, best arranged and
best conducted affairs he had ever wit
nessed in the State, and that it did credit
to the Grand Army of the Republic, the
local National Guard and the citizens of
At to-day's encampment reports were
made by the various committees appointed
on credentials, officers' reports, council of
administration and resolutions.
The delegates to the next national en
campment recommended that hereafter no
new posts be instituted except on recom
mendation of the council of administra
tion. It was also recommended that no
per capita tax be levied on the members of
the different soldiers' homes. The depart
ment commander was authorized to ap
point an aid, with the title of mortuary
register, to complete the mortuary record
of the department.
The time for settling the next meeting
pface for the department encampment was
made a special order for to-morrow. Two
places are proposed, Santa Cruz and San
Francisco, but it is doubtful if San Fran
cisco will ask for it.
One hundred and twenty-three members,
representing 37 corps, were present at
to-day's session" of the Woman's Relief
Corps. The committee on officers' reports
and other committees made their reports,
and the session was consumed in discus

corps will proceed to the election of offi
The Sons of Veterans at their meeting
appointed a committee on resolutions and
one on constitution and revision of by
laws. They received a telegram of con
gratulation from Surgeon-General E. W.
Young of Seattle and one from the G. A.

CRAZED BY HIS INJURIES.
A Man Jtun Over by a Wagon Hecotnes
a leaving Maniac.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 23.—Wil
liam Coy, a teamster, while watering his
horses near the Buffalo brewery, in this
city, to-day, was kicked and knocked
down by one of the animals. His fall
frightened the other horses and they ran
away, one of the wheels of the heavy farm
wagon passing directly over Coy's head,
inflicting a severe scalp wound and other
injuries that may result seriously. When
Coy recovered consciousness he was a rav
ing maniac, and, despite the utmost en
deavors of two men to restrain him, ran
headlong into a telegraph pole, again fall
ing unconscious to the ground. It is
thought he cannot recover his reason.
TERMED A BOGUS REPUBLIC.
Clarence IF. Ashford's Denunciation of
the Dole Government.
VANCOUVER, B. C, April 23.— The
News-Advertiser will publish a lenghthy
h'tter from Clarence W. Ashford, who
is now at San Francisco, regarding the
deportation of Cranstoun, Muller and
Johnstone from Hawaii.
After denouncing the irregular constitu
tion of the court that tried the so-called
rebels and the unfair trials accorded, Ash
ford dwells at some length on the manner
adopted by the Government to obtain
evidence to incriminate persons arrested.
He then refutes the story circulated by
the Dole Government that the three exiles
were barely existing in Honolulu, stating
that Cranstoun was so deeply invading
the field of old-established houses in the
flour and feed business that one of the
large dealers employed him (Ashford) to
see if he could not catch Cranstoun in the
network of license laws and so force him
out of business. This was just before his
Ashford commends the course adopted
by the exiles in suing the steamship com
pany, as they have no recourse against
the Hawaiian Government, owing to the
law passed that its courts shall not
entertain suits for damages arising
from any act of the Government itself, or
any officer in suppression of the rebellion.
As the steamship company was indemni
fied by the Government, Ashford predicts
the "bogus republic" will eventually have
to foot the bills.
la conclusion Ashford expresses the
hope that British. American and other
foreign governments will speedily inquire
into the cases of those who were deported
or are still languishing in that "black hole
of Calcutta" on the reef of Honolulu.

The question as to the location of the
building ha? been a warmly contented one
among the citizens of this city for a year
or more and it was the chief issue upon
which the members of the board were
elected. Those opposed to the purchase
of the Terry block on the ground that it is
too far from the center of town carried the
election by a large majority. The first
meeting of the new board was held to
night and it was voted to build on another
site. The Terry block belongs to Mrs.
Sarah Althea Terry and owing to the
changes in her guardian the title could not
be cleared as soon as wished.

CALDWELL, Ohio, April 23.— A call
has been issued for a national soldiers' re
union to be held here on June 14 and 15
next, and the political tone injected into
the document by the National Committee,
to the effect that the men who saved the

''In response to letters from every quar

given: Every State is expected and re

may send us as many as it deems proper,
but no State shall have more or less than
two votes in the convention, although all
shall have a voice and be present at the
proceedings, to the end that every State
may have equal power to decide how the
soldier vote of the Union shall be cast in

Inspector Mason Describes the
Methods of Those Who Looted
CARSON, Nev., April 23.— Commis
sioner Edwards this morning began the
preliminary examination of John T. Jones,
charged with a shortage of $75,000 in the
melter and refiner's department of the
The accused entered the courtroom with
a smile on his face and took a seat with his
attorneys. General Clark was added to
the Government forces as an attorney of
record to assist the United States District
Attorney in the prosecution.
The proceedings were held behind closed
doors, in accordance with the request of
the defense. There were present Superin
tendent Adams. Melter and Refiner Har
ris, Warren Noteware and Detective Grant.
Lawrence Elrod had been called as a wit
ness for the defense. Harri?, of the mint,
had been called on as a witness for both
sides. Detective Harris of the secret ser
vice was not present. He had been ex
pected in the morning with Piper, who
had been arrested for stealing bullion. A
larjn- crowd was at the depot in the morn
ing to see him arrive with his prisoner,
but he did not put in an appearance.
AVilliam Woodburn, who had a consulta
tion with Coffin in Keno a few days ago,
was placed on record as an attorney for

some days ago by Heney, one of tho ac

tective Grant and Bailiff Sterns occupied
the United States Marshal's rooms adjoin
ing the courtroom. The doors were locked
and the bailiff was instructed to allow no
one in except those engaged in the case.
Inspector Mason, the first witness for the
Government, took the stand and stated
that lie had been connected with the mint
service over forty years, and had been
sent to Carson by the Government to in-
vestigate the shortage. He gave a detailed
description of the methods in vogue in the
Government mints in refining and treating
precious metals, the system of check in the
mint and the inner workings of the coin
ing branch of the service. The description
of the workings of the metals occupied the
The examination was resumed at 1
o'clock. The witness gave a detailed ac
count of how be had investigated the short
age by assaying every bar of bullion in the
mint, several hundred in all. He found
several bars which did not hold up to their
recorded value, and also a counterfeit melt.
The bars were brought over from the mint
by the sergeant in an express wagon and
placed in evidence as exhibit A.
The testimony of Mr. Mason was supple
mented by innumerable figures, assays and
files of the mint records, all of which were
dry testimony, but necessary to lay the
foundation of the Government's case.
General Clark, who conductea the exami
nation, went into the details very exhaust
ively. The witness had everything at his
fingers' ends, and was well fortified with
figures and documents.
An especially interesting statement
brought out was the history of deposit 77.
It came into the mint as a gold deposit
and was entered in the gold book as gold
deposit 77, but when assayed was 483}^
fine. This being below the 500 limit of
fineness, the gold number, 77, was crossed
with a chisel, and it was transferred on the
books as a silver deposit, No. 134. This
was one of the bars that was tampered
with in the melter and refiner's room and
melted over, but the parties who did it
forgot to restamp it like the original.
When the bar appeared in its new form it
was numbereu 134 like the original, but
the 77 crossed with a chisel did not appear
on the new bar, they having overlooked
the fact that it had been changed from one
class of bullion to another by reason of it
having fallen below the standard of fine
ness. The bar had been remelted, part of
the gold extracted and silver used to make
up the actual weight.
The bar came from the Standard mine at
Bodie and was $20,000 short. This enabled
Mason to definitely state that the tam
pering with that bar could only have been
done with the knowledge of the melter
and refiner or his assistants. The witness
also swore that the stealing took place
after the June clean-up of 1891 and before
the June clean-up of 1804.
On cross-examination the witness said
that it was possible for the bar to have
been tampered with outside the melting
room, but not probable.
Court adjourned at 4 :30, and the exami
nation of the witness will be resumed to

MUST AWAIT THFIR TURN
Judges Will Not Immediately
Try Indian Land
Meanwhile Winnebagoes Grow Very
Restless, But an Outbreak
Is Not Expected.
OMAHA, Nebr., April 23.— A special to
the Bee from Lincoln says: It is consid
ered rather indefinite now when the Flour
noy Land Company's and other injunc
tion suits relating to leasehold settlers nn
the Winncbago agency will come up in the
Federal Court, or whether they will be
heard in Lincoln or in Omaha. This after
noon District Attorney Sawyer appeared
before Judges Dundy and Riner, sitting
together, and asked that the cases be taken
up and disposed of. He said that the
situation on the reservation was serious,
and that in his opinion something should
be done at once in regard to it.
Judge Dundy said that the cases were on
the calendar and would not be taken up
until reached in the regular order. When
it was suggested that they were now down
below every other case, Judge Dundy,
with some warmth, assured him that so
far as he was concerned personally no one
who had a case in court at this time should
be discriminated against on account of the
Government or threats of Indian troubles.
When the cases were reached if any one
was there to represent the ttfo sides they
would be tried, and not before.
If attorneys wished to go up among thp
Indians instead of attending to their
cases, then they must take chances on de
lay. The Judge said he would take Op the
call of the calendar where Judge Riner
left it, and so soon as injunction cases
were reached they would be tried. The
matter was left with that understanding.
Attorneys representing some 225 tenanls
on the land were in court and were anxious
for a hearing immediately. The case may
not be tried for ten days. In the mean
time the Indians are restless, but no out
break is probable.

SAN JOSE, Cal., April 23. — Large
crowds of the curious thronged the morgue
to-day to gaze upon the bodies of Alice
Blair, alias Annie Davis, and Albert An
derson, who stabbed her to the heart and
then killed himself in the Hensley House
shortly after midnight last night. At the
autopsy held this morning it waß shown
that Anderson had plunged the knife
twice in the woman's breast and once in
her neck, and had then stabbed himself
ten times, two of the thrusts piercing his
Young Anderson first met Alice Blair
about a year and a half ago, while he was
employed as a waiter in the Plaisance.
They were very intimate until two months
ago, when they quarreled. Since then An
derson had been trying to effect a recon
ciliation, but the woman would have noth
ing to do with him. Anderson went to
her room last night determined to kill her
and then end his own life.
From the testimony introduced nt the
inquest to-day it is supposed that Ander
son went to the room and tried to get in.
Being refused admittance, he broke a win
di/w opening into the hall, when the
woman became frightened, and opened the
door. Leaving the window, he went
around to the door, drew his revolver and
fired three shots at her. One of the bullets
lodged in the wall and the other two went
through the window. His revolver refused
to work and he drew his dagger, and at
tacked the defenseless woman. Three
times he plunged the blade into her body
and then turned the weapon upon himself.
Mrs. Blair ran down to the landlady's
room, screaming: "I am shot! I am
shot! Anderson has killed me!" and then
fell to the floor. A doctor was hastily sum
moned, but she expired before he arrived.
Alice T. Blair, the murdered woman,
came to San Jose about two years ago,
after she had deserted her husband in
Woodland. She had a weakness for tine
dresses and jewelry, and, although pos
sessed of a good home, persisted in leading
a wayward life. Several months ago her
husband applied for a divorce and she
allowed it to go by default. Mr. Blair,
who is a prominent businessman of "Wood
land, did all in his power to turn the
woman from the downward path she had
chosen, bat without avail. As a last re

SHIPMENTS OF FJtVIT AST> WISE.
A falling Off in the Output During the
SAN JOSE, Cal., April 23.— The eastern
shipments for the week ending April 20
were light, but l;0O0,735 pounds were sent
out, as against 1,f>70,030f0r the same period
last year, a decrease of 669,295 pounds.
The slow movement of dried fruit is the
cause of the decrease and tends to show
that, although prices are good, the fruit is
being held in anticipation of a raise. Dur
ing the week ending April 21, 1894, the
shipments of dried fruit amounted to 856,
--720 pounds, while last week only 455,325
were shipped. It is estimated that the
amount of dried fruit still in the valley is
about 2,500,000 pounds, while at this time
last year not more than 1,500,000 pounds
remained, the whole of which went east
during the latter part of April and the first
Wine shipments fell off 238,275 pounds,
the shipments last week being 882,066,
against 10,940 during the corresponding i
week last \ ear. The shipments of canned
fruit last week amounted to 81,470 pounds.
Of the 435,32 a pounds of dried fruit .shipped
287,485 were prunes, 106.576 peaches, 56,030
apricots, 3075 pears and 21C>0 plums. The
total shipments for the first three weeks of
April were 3,821,405 pounds.
The local shipments on the narrow gauge
reached 855,710 pounds, being mostly mer
chandise, fruit, produce, flour and mill
stuffs. The same road handled 101,040
pounds of eastbound fruit, most of the
shipments being from Campbell Station.

Mrs. Fisher's Transactions
With Cecil King, Alias
It Would Seem That the Victim Was
Willing to Be Swindled a
INDIANAPOLIS, Isd., April 23.— An in
vestigation of the Indiartapolis end of the
story from San Francisco that Mrs. Julia
C. Fisher of this city is in San Francisco
searching for the man who promised to
marry her and then robbed her of $1500
shows that C. Cecil King and Harry K.

September, presumably after correspond
ence with Mrs. Fisher, who owned prop
erty at 446 North Delaware street, and two

sented to her that he was a wealthy Cali
fornian and wanted to trade fruit farms
in the Golden State for city property here.
She sent him to the Strouse & Fulenn
agency. Mr. Strouse of that firm says that
Cayelie, or H. C. King, as he then gave his
name, said he had two farms, one near Los
Angeles and one near Sacramento. He
wanted to trade them for city property
here and would pay any difference in price
in cash. He said that Mrs. Fisher had re
ferred him to the agency.
Some time after Mrs. Fisher asked
Strouse to procure a loan of $l."> 00 for her,
as she wanted to send her two boys to
school. The loan wa9 made. After pay
ing the agent's commission, a sewer assess
ment and some bills, Mrs. Fisher had
$ISOO left. It was this money, if any, that
she pave to Cavelle or King to "keep for
her." After Cavelle got the money he left
town. Mrs. Fisher became sick when she
discovered what had been done, and waß
sick for seven weeks. While she was ill
she received a letter from Cavelle, who
signed the name of King, saying that he
had been called suddenly to Chicago and
wliilo there was sandbagged and robbed.

Mrs. Fisher wanted to send the money,

Onlu Hit the norkingman.
SPRINGFIELD, Ihh., April 23.—Gov
ernor Altgeld, talking on what he intended
doing in the way of prosecuting the al
leged beef combine for violation of the
anti-trust law, said he had observed that
none of these anti-trust laws seem to have
amounted to anything in this country, ex
cept to hit the workingman over the head
with them ; that the corporations go right
on forming trusts. As to thte beef combine
he did not know yet what evidence can be
produced to form a basis for prosecution.
He will vigorously prosecute all violations
of law wherever he can find it possible.
