UKTAH, Cal., June 16.— Sheriff John
son and Policeman Burke returned late
last night from an unsuccessful pursuit of
the highwaymen who held up the Mendo
cino stage yesterday afternoon.
They trailed one of the outlaws by the
aid of a bloodhound. The animal suc
ceeded in retrieving a pair of overalls
which had been worn by one of the rob
bers and which had been hidden in a
hollow tree. The treasure box was also
found. It had been broken into and the
contents scattered and valuable packages
taken. The amount of money secured will
According to the story of a young lady
passenger, there were two robbers. One
stepped into the road while the other re
mained concealed in the undergrowth at
the roadside. When the driver hesitated
to halt at the first command the lady was
looking out of the stage. The concealed
robber immediately leveled a gun on the
driver, and had he not stopped bloodshed
would doubth'?s have resulted.
Johnson and Burke are now on the trail
of the road agents, and as the country is
comparatively open and traveling good a
quick capture is expected.

.T. Wright, the private detective who ran

hands of a party of "Shy Red's" friends in

Wright has been engaged in collect ing evi
dence in the case, and for several days past
has been frequenting the saloons of L I
street in search of a certain party needed
as a witness. This evening while seated
in "Googy" Welch's saloon he claims that i
a colored rough known as Ed Emerson,
alias "Smoky," and a man named Daven
port approached him and asked what his
business was. The negro accused him of I
being a stool pigeon and a detective in dis- I
guise and struck him. Davenport struck !
him at the same time.
Wright sprang from his chnir and started
toward the back room of the saloon, hop
ing to escape by a back entrance. The
negro, so he claimed, drew a knife and
Davenport struck at him. Grasping a
wrung of the chair, Wright drew his pistol
and warned them to keep away.
At this juncture the rest of the crowd
sprang at him, took the pistol from him
and brutally beat and kicked him. Event
ually Wright managed to effect his escape,
and notified the police authorities.
Chief of Police Drew accompanied him
in person to the saloon and investigated
the affair, and the police are in search of
all participants. Ollicers Hayes and
Fisher captured "Smoky" and locked him
in the City Prison. Officer Rutherford is
hot on the trail of Davenport and will
probably capture his man within a short
time. This assault upon Wright by known
friends of "Shy Red" is deemed by the po
lice evidence that the suspect knows more
of the case than he is willing to admit, and
that the gang fears that Detective Wright
possesses damaging evidence against him
and wish to either make away with him or
frighten him into abandoning the case.

Court of this circuit on the appeal recently
taken by the Oregon Short Line and Utah
Northern Railway Company and Oliver
Ames and Samuel Carr of Boston, in the
foreclosure ca.so of the American Loan and
Trust Company, in which John M. Egan
of St. Paul was recently appointed receiver,
are being rapidly prepared, and will be
filed in San Francisco this week.
An interesting question, yet undecided
in the history of railway foreclosures, is
involved, viz. : Has a court of equity power
to order receivers' certificates to issue to a
trustee of a second mortgage for advances
by it to pay interest by the first mortgagee
in possession and charge the property of
the railway company therefor, where the
road is earning more than sufficient to pay
cost of operations, taxes, maintenance and
repair, but insufficient to pay all its inter
est due on first mortgages? and especially,
Can receivers' certificates so issue where
rhe holders of the first and second mort
gages appear and object and the mortgagee
gives no authority to the trustee to consent
to the issue?

outlook for an early increase.
The work of enlarging the entrance to

completed in four months. When finished
the largest battleship afloat can be taken
into the dock with perfect safety.
Owing to the fact that a new floor is
being laid in the boatshop many of the

allow the work to be prosecuted without
impediment. Over $10,000 will be expended
in replacine the old floor.

UKIAH, Cal., June 16.— The ran rose
over the Second Regiment Artillery in
Camp Foster this morning. The first day
in camp, Sunday, brought many visitors.
It was a beautiful day — just warm enough
to make the shade comfortable.
Colonel Sumner and Captain Hanks are
the inspecting officers. They made an in

derly and v.- ell -equipped encampment.
Captain Cunningham carried off the hon

the camp was named, was a visitor and
The first duty performed by the hospital
department was done to-day, the subject
being none other than Colonel McDonald,
who received a cut over his left eye from
his horse throwing his head back suddenly.
Guard was mounted last night and the
sentinels permitted no one to pass in or
out without the countersign or pass. To
morrow the camp will be officially opened
and the regiment will undergo strict mili
tary discipline as it is found in the camp
and in the field. Every one seems well
pleased and the soldiers are unanimous in
Bpeaking in the highest terms of the city,

The attraction of to-day was the dress
parade, which showed the regiment and
its officers to good advantage. The second
evening in camp was ushered in by music,
illuminations and the entertainment of lo
cal visitors. Colonel McDonald is the ob
ject of many interrogations concerning the
injury over his eye, but he says a brave
soldier is always wounded in front.

VANCOUVER, B. C, June lti.— Hon. J.
G. Ward, Treasurer and I'ostmaster-Gen
eral of New Zealand, passed through the
city to-day enroute home, leaving on the
steamer Warrimoo. He has been to Lon
don for the purpose of floating a loan of
$7,")00,000 for the assistance of settlers on
Government lands. His visit to Canada
was for the purpose of interviewing the
Government regarding the subsidy to the
steamship line and cable.
Concerning the latter matter, Ward says
he had an interview with Sir Adolph
Caron, Postmaster-General, and arrange
ment? were practically completed, thoiiKh
the amount of subsidy New Zealand is
to pay the steamship company will not be
disclosed till his return there. Regarding
the cable, Ward says the delay of the Im
perial Government is the only impedi
ment. The Earl of Jersey's report on the
matter has been referred to a special com
mittee, and till their report is received, the
Government will not take action, although,
as the colonies nearly all favor the scheme,
and the Earl of Jersey's report is also
favorable, it is thought the Imperial Gov
ernment will not throw cold water on the

Cures Ninety-eight per cent, of alt
cases of Consumption, in all its
Although by many believed to be in-
curable, there is the evidence of hun-
dreds of living- witnesses to the fact that,
in all its earlier stages, consumption is a
curable disease. Not every case, but a
large percentage of cases, and we believe,
fully 9S percent, are cured by Dr. Pierce' 3
Golden Medical Discovery, even after
the disease has progressed so far as
to induce repeated bleedings from the
lungs, severe lingering cough with co-
pious expectoration (including tubercu-
lar matter), great loss of flesh and ex-
treme emaciation and weakness.
Do you doubt that hundreds of such
cases reported to us as cured by "Gold-
en Medical Discovery" were genuine
cases of that dread and fatal disease?
You need not take our word for it. They
have, in nearly every instance, been so
pronounced by the best and most ex-
perienced home physicians, who have
no interest whatever in misrepresenting:
them, and who were often strongly prej-
udiced and advised against a trial of
"Golden Medical Discovery, " but who
have been forced to confess that it sur-
passes, in curative power over this fatal
malady, all other medicines with which
they are acquainted. Nasty cod liver
oil and its filthy "emulsions " and mix-
tures, had been tried in nearly all these
cases and had either utterly failed to
benefit, or had only seemed to benefit a
little for a short time. Extract of malt,
whiskey, and various preparations of the
hypophosphites had also been faithfully
tried in vain.
The photographs of a large number of
those cured of consumption, bronchitis,
lingering coughs, asthma, chronic nasal
catarrh and kindred maladies, have been
skillfully reproduced in a book of 160
pages which will be mailed to your ad-
dress for six cents in stamps. Address
