An attempt has been made to locate

proved futile, and his frienns now fear he

It is known that he employed several In

of the Chollar mine to-night near the shaft
on the 450-foot level of the mine, and a dcs-

PORTLAND, Or., June 3.— ln the United

Gilbert signed an order appointing John
}A. Egan receiver of the Oregon Short Line
and Utah Northern Railroad, and also an
order allowing the issue of receiver's cer
tificates to the amount of $750,000.

The order appointing an independent re

Immediately after the order was signed,
Mr. Egan left for Omaha.
C. H. Hold redge, formerly general agent
of the passenger department of the Chicago
Great Western, with headquarters in St.
Paul, is in Portland en route to Alaska.
He says the report published in St. Paul
that he is to be general passenger agent of
the Oregon Short Line under Receiver Egan
is without foundation. On his returm from
Alaska he will probably go to the South, as
he is interested in a private enterprise in
that section of the country.

Hartley, the slayer of Senator M. D. Foley,

SX7RPRISE FOR VIS ALIA.
The Content for Beauty's Crown Protn-
ites to Be Full of Them.
VISALIA, Cal., June 3.— When the
votes were counted at noon to-day Miss
Stevens was fourth on the list, with 2277
votes to her credit for Goddess of Liberty.
As predicted in the dispatch to the Call
yesterday, her friends had many ballots
they were holding out, and to-day they
deposited 1159, placing their favorite in the
lead. Rhe now has 3786 vote?, Miss Ward
3616, Miss Brown 2392 and Miss Blake 23Bl.
There are other surprises in store, for
many thousands of ballots are being held
out until what is considered the proper
time to deposit them.
When the votes were being counted
this evening there was a great crowd
watching the tally; and one gentleman,
who knows a good deal about the contest,
says he thinks there will be 50,000 votes
cast during the last few days of the ballot
ing. The friends of Miss Ward seem a
little dazed by the big vote cast for Miss
Stevens to-day, but they will make up
their loss to-morrow if all signs do not fail.
No A>tc» of the JCneaped Prisoner,
VISALIA, Cal., June 3.— There i« no
news of the escaped prisoner. The Sheriff's
deputies are supposed to be looking for
Golden, the horse-trainer, who cut his way
out of jail yesterday, but if they have any
knowledge of his whereabouts they have
not made their discovery public. A man
was seen yesterday morning in the ceme
tery who answered to the description of
Golden, but there has been no report
brought to town that is considered reliable
as to the course the burglar took when
leaving here. It is said that the trusty
acted in a suspicious manner early Sunday
morning, and some seem to think that he
knows more about the time and the way
Golden got out of jail than he has yet told.

VISALIA, Cal., June 3.— Hon. W. H.
Alford of this city has accepted an invita
tion to deliver the oration at San Bernar

is regarded here as the silver-tongued
orator of the San Joaquin Valley, and bets
are being made that San Bernardino will
have the be^t oration delivered in the
State on the Nation's birthday. Mr. Al
ford made rhe speech seconding the nomi
nation of Hon. Stephen M. White for
United States Senator two years ago,
while representing Tulare County in the

magnetic, and the people who have the
pleasure of listening to him will not soon
forget his eloquence.

A aUICK DECISION MADE.
Suft Brought by the Brother
of the Missing Reedley
NO ATTEMPT AT DEFENSE.
The Forged Deeds Ordered Can
celed—Title Now Vested In
FRESNO, Cal., June 3.— Judge Carter
to-day decided a case that takes out of
Professor W. A. Sanders' hand all the
property which he secured by forging the
name of tha missing rancher, William
The suit was brought by Thomas
Wootton, a brother of the Reedly farmer,
who came out from England soon after
William Wootton's disappearance.
The testimony in the case was the same
as that brought out in the famous trial for
forgery, of which felony Professor Sanders
was recently convicted.
The land in question comprises about
3800 acres and is valued at about ?50,000.
Thomas Wootton is the devisee, and has
been awaiting the outcome of the criminal
trial before bringing the civil suit for the
recovery of the valuable estate for which
Sanders is supposed to nave murdered
The plaintiff put several witnesses on
the stand to testify as to the sudden dis
appearance of Wootton and the forging of
the various deeds, mortgages and con
tracts in the transfer of the estate from the
missing rancher to Sanders.
Charles Rohloff, who saw Wootton and
Sanders drive away from the former's
ranch on the day when the wealthy farmer
was last seen, was the most important wit
ness, and there was no attempt by the
defendant's attorney to weaken his testi
mony. In fact, the defense made prac
tically no defense, and the trial lasted but
an hour or two. At its close Judge Carter
promptly ordered the canceling of all the
instruments in the transfer.
Until to-day the county records showed
that Professor Sanders was the owner of a
part of the property, while the title to
the remainder was in the names of John
Knausch and R. L. Graves, two mythical
persons invented by Sanders to divert
suspicion from himself.
Saunders was arrested in April, 1894, on
a charge of murdering Wooton, but the
body was never found and the charge
could not be sustained. He was then tried
and found guilty of forgery.
SANTA BARBARA LOYALTY
It Will Give Preference to the
Productions of Local
Good Progress Being Made on the
Bridge to Span the Santa
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.— The
first soap factory in Santa Barbara County
is to be established at Summerland. This
will be the first factory on the spot to use
for fuel the excellent oil which this district
is producing in such quantities. Messrs.
Main and Lester have charge of this new
enterprise and have erected a two-story
building and have all the necessary ma
chinery on the spot ready to set up.
Experiments are being made with a
view to refining Summerland oil products
so that they can be used for illuminating
purposes. The citizens of this place, who
are indignant over the recent arbitrary ad
vance in Standard Oil prices, are watching
these experiments with interest, and are
loyal enough to their locality to pledge
themselves to the consumption of the re
fined local product if it can be adapted to
household uses, and will stand by the
home product no matter what induce
ments the Standard Oil Company may
hereafter offer in the way of reduced
The Banta Maria Bridge.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.— Two
spans of the great iron bridge being placed
by the Southern Pacific Company over the
Santa Maria River, near Guadalupe, are
already in place and the work is progress
ing beyond the original calculations. The
date of completion of the structure is now
set for not later than July 1. At the mouth
of the Santa Ynez River 600,000 bricks will
be used for the construction of a pier. The
greatest difficulty encountered by the
builders so far is the lack of gravel and the
distance to good stone quarries. There is
talk of using the gravel deposit on the
Sloan ranch in San Pascual Canyon.
Should this be done a road would at once
be built to the canyon, and thiq would
give Lompoc railroad connection with the
main line months ahead of the anticipated
Damage to Bean Fields.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.— The
recent season of continued high winds, so
uncommon in this protected section of the
southern coast, has done some damage to
the beanfields near Hueneme, and 1100
acres may have to be replanted. About
Santa Barbara the damage has been slight,
owing to the defense of surrounding hills.
No fruit has been injured in either section.
Efforts for Public Parka.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.—
Throughout the northern part of this

is well under way there.

A. Hew Move in the Barron Vase.
SAN JOSE, Cal., June 3.— S. F. Lieb,
one of the attorneys for Eva Rose Barron,
widow of Edward Barron, appeared before
Judge Reynolds this morning and asked
that C. L. Witten of San Jose be appointed
attorney for the minor children — Marian,
Doretta and William — of William R. Bar
ron, who died a few weeks ago at Ala
meda. The court made the order as re
quested. The motion was made for the

a distribution of the estate as it would be
distributed with the will vacated, and this

AT SANTA CRVZ CARNIVAL.
Tliere Will Be Drills and Gun Practice
at the Santa Cruz Fiesta.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 3.— General
Barrett passed the day at Mare Island and
vicinity. After perfecting all necessary
arrangements for receiving the United
States ship Olympia, which has been placed
at the disposal of the naval battalion of
the National Guard by the authorities at
Washington for the purpose of joining in
the coming fiesta at Santa Cruz, the gen
eral procured a carriage and was driven to
the proposed camping ground of the com
panies of the National Guard of the Third
Brigade, situated near Vallejo, where he
made a thorough inspection and offered
such suggestions as he deemed would con
tribute to the comfort and efficient discip
line of the men during their annual out
ing campaign. It is the intention of Gen
eral Barrett to visit all the various en
campments of the guard throughout the
State, if time can possibly be spared from
his office duties.
The steamer Olympia will probably
leave Mare Island navy yard on Saturday
next, and will drop down to San Francisco,
where the naval battalion will embark and
leave the following day for Santa Cruz,
where she will remain for at least six
days, affording every opportunity during
that period for exhaustive drill and prac
tice in the handling of the great guns by
the members of the naval battalion. A
large percentage of the regular crew will
no doubt be retained on board to ensure
the vessel being handled properly, and to
assist in the practice of the guns. They
will also assist in the course of instruction,
but a sufficient number of the crew will be
drafted into shore quarters to provide
room and sleeping quarters for the bat
CLOVERDALE IN THE FIELD
Preparing for a Grand Cele
bration of the Fourth
A Fair Goddess, Columbia and Jus
tice to Be Chosen by Popular
CLOVERDALE, Cal., June 3.—When
ever Cloverdale decides to do anything, she
does it well, as the city's fair bears testi
mony. She has now decided to celebrate
the Nation's birthday in a glorious and, in
many respects.an entirely original manner.
Indeed the day and the doings thereon are
already the chief topic of conversation on
the streets of Cloverdale.
The "Fair Goddess" is being selected by
ballot. "Columbia" will be the lady for
whom the second highest number of votes
have been cast, and the lady next on the
list will officiate as Justice. The balloting,
which has only begun, now stands:
Miss Maud Graham, ir>6.
Miss Eva Shelford, 114.
Mrs. C. A. Thilo, 109.
Miss Bertha McCray, 90.
Miss Lizzie Markell, 20.
The parade promises to be one of the
best the county has ever seen. The god
dess will sit enshrined on a magnificent
float drawn by ten iron-gray steeds. Colum
bia will be enthroned upon a float drawn by
six gallant blacks. Justice will likewise
be carried in splendor.
Albert G. Burnett will be the orator of
the day. He needs no introduction to the
eloquence-loving people of Sonoma County.
A large dancing platform is to be erected
in Colonel Prescott's grove.
One of the most interesting features will
be half and quarter mile bicycle races, in
wnich a number of ladies will compete.
There is also promised a pony race.
In the afternoon the "Fantastics," alias
"Horribles," alias "Squeedunks," will
take possession of the town.
The festivities of the day will be ended
by a beautiful pyrotechnic display in the
evening and a dance in Union Hall. There
is yet another event which will appeal
strongly to many, namely, a good, old
fashioned barbecue. The piece de resist
ance will be a mountain bear. Besides
bruin there will be slaughtered two beeves,
four calves, five porkers and eight head of
mutton, and other good things will be in
A large amount of money has been
donated for the fete, and everybody is
planning and working to make the cele
bration a grand success. Low rates have
been secured from all points on the Dona
hue system. Everybody is invited and
assured a good time and cordial treatment.
Released. From the Los Angeles Jail.
SACRAMENTO, Cai,., June 3.—Gover
nor Budd has pardoned W. H. Buehler,
who was sentenced in Los Angeles in last
October to pay a fine of $500 or be impris
oned in the Los Angeles City Jail until the
fine was satisfied. BuehJer, who was a
Deputy Sheriff, was convicted of inhuman
conduct toward a girl who was a prisoner
in his charge. The girl swore afterward
that her testimony given on the trial was
false and that she had been forced to prose
cute Buehler. The Governor believes
Buehler should prosecute the people who
induced the girl to prosecute him.

Demands That Have Been
Accumu lating for Twelve
WELCOME FUNDS TO MANY.
List of Counties and Charitable In
stitutions That Will Be
SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 3.— For th«
past twelve years a series of demands
have been accumulating in the hands of
the Board of Examiners from the various
counties throughout the State, being for
money expended in the care of the aged,
indigent and orphans. Taken in entirety,
they amount to over $200,000.
The act creating the power of counties
making these demands upon the State
having been repealed, making it an impos
sibility for further drains of the treasury
of a like nature, and in view of the fact
that in many counties the county fnnds
for this purpose are exhausted and inno
cent deserving persons are actually in need
and in danger of suffering, the members of
the Board of Examiners decided to take
instant action in the matter and sign tho
This was not done, however, until they
had been submitted to the most rigid ex
amination and in many cases curtailed to
a considerable extent, and in one case, that
of a claim from Moctoc County for the sup
port of six orphans, the demand was
denied altogether on the ground that the
children had not Keen supported by said
county for one ye:-r previous to making
the demand for State assistance, as called
for in the requirements of the act itself.

and charitable institutions are as follows:

WEATHER AAD CJtOFS.
Cool Weather Ha* Enhanced the Value of
J,utr-Soirn Grain Crops.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 3.— Director
Barwick of the California Weather and
Crop Service summarizes as follows : The
average temperature for the week ending
Monday, June 3, was: For Eureka, 52;
Fresno, 64; Independence, 58; Los An
geles, 62; Red Bluff, 66; Sacramento. 64;
San Francisco, 56; San Luis Obispo, 52,
and San Diego, 60. As compared with the
normal, there was a heat deficiency as fol
lows: Eureka, 2; Fresno. 8; Los Angeles,
4; Red Bluff, 5; Sacramento, San Fran
cisco and San Diego. 3 degrees.
The total precipitation for the week was
nothing at Los Angeles, Red Bluff, Sacra
mento and San Diego, a trace at Eureka
and Fresno, one-tenth of an inch at San
Francisco and half an inch at San Luis
Obispo. As compared with the normal, a
deficiency is reported at all points except
San Francisco and San Luis Obispo, where
a slight excess is shown.
The continued cool weather in the grain
growing sections of the State has enhanced
the value of late-sown grain, causing it to
fill out well with full pJump kernels. Rust
has done considerable damage to grain in
the lower San Joaquin Valley.
For the first time ever known in Ventura
County, the high winds have blown off
entirely the blossoms from the sage-brush,
thereby greatly reducing the honey pros
pects in that county.
The weather during the week has been
exceptionally cool, except yesterday, which
gave an excess of heat over the normal.
The sunshine and temperature were very
beneficial to all growing and maturing
crops. The mountain counties report very
cold weather, and in some a heavy snow
fall is also reported, being an unusual
thing so late in the season, even for our
elevated regions. ;
