FROM ENSENADA'S JAIL.
Vice-Consul Godbe Secures
the Freedom of Seymour
CHOOSING VISALIA'S CtUEEN.
Charges Against Governor Hughes
of Arizona Now Being In
TUbARE, Cal., May 25.— An attempt at
the culture of silkworms, which has re
sulted successfully, adds another industry
to the many of Tulare County. It has
been proven by experiment that the in
dustrious little creatures thrive in this
climate, and the manufacture of an ex
cellent grade of silk is one of the possibili
ties of the future in Tulare.
Some weeks ago Frank Grifflno received
from Italy a few eggs of the silkworm,
which hatched in a few days, and to-day
he has thousands of the little insects in the
various stages of their transformation.
The worms are in a perfectly healthy con
dition and readily spin their cocoons,
which are hard, compact and of the very
best quality of silk.
Mr. Griffino says the soil and climate are
well adapted to the culture of the mulberry
tree, which is an important factor in silk
worm cultivation. He is enthusiastic over
his experiment, and prophesies ttiat seri
culture will soon be one of the leading in
dustries of this county.

British rice-Consul Godbe Secures the
Release of Seymour Jackson.
SAN DIEGO, Cal., May Through
the efforts of British Vice - Consul
Godbe, the Mexican authorities at En
senada to-day released Seymour Jackson,
charged with robbing Godbe's bank, on
$10,000 bail. It is not known here who
the sureties are. The robbery of the bank
occurred on the night of March 20, and on
the same night Riveroll's shipping office
was robbed of a $13,000 gold bar. It was
thought at first that the. robberies were
connected, but they are now believed to
have. been separate jobs. That at the bank
was effected by unlocking the door with a :
key, opening the safe by the combination
and*. extracting $3000 in gold and. green
Jackson has resumed his duties as
cashier at the bank, Godbe being absent in
San Francisco. Four Mexican citizens
charged with the gold bar robbery are still
kept in separate cells with no signs of a
trial or liberation.
A.CCV&EO ARIZONA'S GOVERNOR.
Charges Against Hughes Reiterated Be
fore an Investigating Commission.
PHCENIX, Ariz., May 25.— 1t developed
to-day that Judge Joel T. Olive and C. C.
Duncan, agents of the Interior Depart
ment, are here for the purpose of investi
gating the charges preferred against Gov
ernor Hughes some time ago by the ex
ecutive committee of the Territorial Dem
ocratic Central Committee.
B. A. Fickas, the chairman of the Cen
tral Committee, appeared before the de
partment agents and Governor Hughes
and made a sworn statement reiterating
the charges of malfeasance, nonfeasance
and disloyalty to the Democratic party,
made by the executive committee. Mr.
Fickas' arraignment of the Governor is
said to have been calm and dispassionate,
yet terrific. Governor Hughes was given
an opportunity to make a statement in his
own behalf. The examination of Chair
man Fickas and the Governor by the
agents extended from 10 k. m. to 2 p. m., at
which time the matter was continued for
further hearing till Monday next.

still taller ones and masts, the yardarms
of which should be rigged with ropes and
half-furled sails in such a way as to give a
marine aspect to the street that would be
in harmony with the Venetian idea.
At the corner of Pacific avenue and
Laurel street a beautiful arch made of na

abundance in Santa Cruz County, will be

SACRAMENTO, Cai., May 25.— 1t is
claimed that the confidential agent of the
Kern County Grand Jury was dispatched
to Sacramento for the purpose of compar
ing the affidavits of coyote scalp depositors
now on file in the County Clerk's office of
Kern County with the demand certificates
made by that official upon the State, and
it is rumored that gross irregularities have
been discovered between the two claims.
In the meantime, the certificates in charge
of the Board of Examiners are being
guarded with jealous care, and the board
absolutely refuses to allow their return to
Kern County unless required for evidence.
The form of the certificate as drafted by
Secretary Pratt of the State Board of Ex
aminers has been the result of long and
careful study upon the part of that official,
and is consequently very binding, afford
ing no loophole of escape from felony
charges should there be any fraud perpe
trated in the destruction of scalps or the
raising of certificates. A specimen copy
is as follows :
I, John Doe, Clerk of the Board of Supervisor!
of the County of , State of California, pur
suant to the order of said board passed , do
hereby certify that James Doe during the
quarter ending December, 1894, has deposited
five scalps; that each scalp contained the
nose and ears, and that each and all have
been duly destroyed by fire in my
presence; and there is due the said depositor
from the State of California the sum
of «$25; and further certify that the affidavit
of said depositor Is on file in this office, wheria
he doth depose and say that the coyotes were
killed by him; that said scalpslwere presented
within three months after the coyotes were
killed; that said coyotes were killed within
this county, and that none of the coyotes were
brought from outside the limits of California;
and said affidavit further states the time and
place that each animal was killed.
Thejfact that gross frauds have been
perpetrated upon the State in the matter
of claims for bounty on coyote scalps has
long been known to the members of the
Board of Examiners, as evinced by the re
port of Secretary Pratt for the present
year, in which appears the following, un
