IS HEIR TO A FORTUNE.
A Big Railroad Battle Said to
Be Pending in This
STRANGE CASE OF INSANITY.
Sutter County tn Favor of the
Establishment of Union
ANGELS CAMP, Cm.., July 12.— As a
result of The duel yesterday between Chris
]Tci<! and Peter ftforo, which occurred
three i side of San Uidreas, both
in en are in a precarious condition. One of
the three balls which struck Moro pene
trated his long, and his death is almost
certain. Heid's most dangerous wound is
in the shoulder. Although probed for. the
bullet cannot be located, and the physi
cians fear it has entered the chest cavity.
As i» the circumstances of theduel, the
versions of the men vary. Both were
headed this way with their fish-wagons,
Heid in the load. Moro whipped up his
horses with the intention of overtaking his
rival for the purpose of having it out with
him or else passing him. He claims that
Heid got off his wagon and endeavored to
pull him off his seat, at the same time
reaching into his hip pocket for his re
volver. Moro says that he grabbed his
pistol, which was beside him on the seat,
and began firing.
Heid, however, avers that after some
words he told Moro that if he would get
down he would whip him, and that Moro,
without warning, began tiring. However
that may be, as-soon as the latter fired he
jumped to the ground and a perfect
fusillade raged between them at close
range. As soon as their revolvers were
emptied Moro retreated. His condition
will not permit of his removal from the
saloon near by to his home at San An
dreas. Heid is with friends at that place.
Yotrag Moro's parents reside near San
Andreas. His half-brother, Robert Leon
ard, is a prominent citizen there, and
formerly published the Citizen. Moro had
the reputation of being a '-game lighter." j
Hcid was also a man of nerve. He j
owned land on the Moqueiemoa grant at |
the time the militia ejected settlers in be
half of the Southern Pacific Company. He
bared Iris breast and dared the soldiers to
fire, at the same time threatening to kill
the lirst man who put a foot, on the prop
erty 'ne claimed. His daughter has the
distinction of conducting a barber-shop at

For the Second Time He Falls Heir to a
FRESNO.CaI., July 12.— Phillip Horn has
received word from Tamaqua, Pa., that he
is entitled to the possession of an estate
valued at $37,000. He is a wagon-maker
of this city and has been carrying on a
small business for a number of years. Six
years ago a relative died and left him a
valuable piece of property, but the execu
tors of the estate could not find him and
were about to abandon the search when
they learned that he was in this city. Horn i

His Visit Iterires Talk of a Battle Be
tween the Rival Jtailroads.
SAN DIEGO, Gal., July 12.— President
B. P. Cheney Jr. of the San Diego Land
and Town Company is. inspecting property
and improvements now going on, includ
ing the enlargement of the Sweetwater
dam and the extension of the National |
City and Otay Railroad. He is accom- 1
panied by Director Charles S. Gleed and
Treasurer Lanning. Mr. Cheney, as chair
man of the reorganization committee of
the Santa Fe Company, is also looking
over the railroad property in the West, but
will not discuss the probabilities.
The fact that the Southern Pacific ha
secured control of the Cuyamaca road,
which assures its entry into San Dii-go, is
taken to indicate a counter-move against
the Santa Fe's entrance into San Fran
cisco, and that battle is about to begin
between these companies on this coast. It
is thought here that the Santa Fe is
making an important deal with the Valley

'Strange, Experience of a San Bernardino
Camper in a High Altitude.
SAX BERNARDINO, Cal., July 12.—
A case of insanity induced by the rarefied
air of high mountains, exactly similar to
the recent experience of Mrs. Yolney
fcpalding of San Francisco in th c moun
tains of Colorado, occurred in this county
Lester Perdew, a barber about 22 years
of age, went to Bear Valley in the San
Bernardino Mountains last Wednesday to
cam p with some friends, valley is
thirty-five miles from this city, and the
altitude is over 6000 feet.
During the night he became very rest
less, and the next morning was violently
insane. He threatened to kill himself and
his friends, and yesterday it was determ
ined to bring him to the valley. His
hands were bound behind him and he was
taken over the trail on burros, friends rid
ing close to him before and behind to pre
vent him throwing himself over a preci
pice. When half way down he was turned
over to the stage-driver. He managed to
loosen the bands which held him, and the
driver and a companion had a desperate
struggle to subdue him.
When the valley level was reached at
Redlands, Perdew had quieted dowu and
seemed to be quite rational. He was
turned over to his friends, and to-day his
mental equilibrium appears to be restored.

Her Fruit- Growers Favor the Proposition
to Establish Union Auction- Rooms.
MARYSVILLE, Cal., July 12. — The
question cf maintaining one or more than
one auction-room in each of the large
Eastern cities was considered at a meeting
of the Sutter County fruit-growers, held in
Yuba City last evening. Colonel H. Wein-
Btock of Sacramento addressed the meet
ing and resolutions were adopted sup
porting the California Fruit Growers'
and Shippers' Association, which
was organized for the principal pur
pose of establishing union auction
rooms that all the fruit and all the buyers
and all the auctioners in each of the differ
ent cities may be brought together under
one roof, thus preventing Califo rnia fruit
from competing with itself through the
fruit being sold in several places and under
It is contended that this system of con
solidation, in connection with a bureau of
information for the growers, will result in
securing much better values than were
obtained under the old method. The real
fi^ht is centered on New York City, where
two large associations have refused to con
sider the proposition of consolidation.
.Resolutions were passed by the growers
last night denouncing those who are doing
business with these rival concerns.

ANGRY SUN JOSE CHINESE.
Faction Troubles Expected
Over the Abduction of
Her Husband Charged With Being
a Notorious Polygamist With
SAN JOSE, Cal., July 12.— 1t looks as
though serious trouble will result in China
town over the alleped kidnaping of Boon
Ho. Yesterday afternoon Soon Ho, or
Mrs. Ham Ket Soon, as she has a right to
be called now, was arrested on a charge of
grand larceny. This morning she was re
leased on bail in the sum of $5000, but this
afternoon members of the opposing fiction
made affidavits that the bonds furnished
were worthless and asked that she be re
manded to the custody of the Sheriff. Her
examination on the charge of grand lar
ceny,was set for Tuesday.
The enemies of Ham Ket Soon allege
that Hani Ket is none other than a profes
sional wooer of Chinese maidens, who has
been known heretofore as Ling Lee. They
assert that he has five wives in Portland,
Or., and ns many more in this State, he
having married "them all to quash abduc
tion charges a? in this case. They also
threaten Ham Ket with arrest for bigamy,
as they claim the only thing that separ
ate! Ham Ket and his wives were good
sums of money.
At present the two factions are watching
each other closely, and but little encour
agement would cause a crash between
their respective tongs. It is thought a
fight will surely occur if Ham Ket Soon
attempts to take'his bride to Portland. Or..

saloon on West Santa Clara street, was

passed asl counterfeit piece on him. It is
said that Dubronz passed the same coin
the day before on a man named Com in,

A REGATTA FOR BLOOD
Preparations Made for the
Third Race for the Trophy
AIL ARE AFTER THE QUEEN.
Morrell's Boat Looking for the Per
petual Challenge Cup— News
of the Yachts.
A hop will be given at the San Fran
cisco Yacht Club house at Sausalito to
night, and to-morrow the second regatta of
the season under the auspices of the club
will be held over what is known as the
"clubhouse course." The race is for a
trophy given by a local firm and is open to
all yachts in regularly organized clubs on
the bay. It will be the third run for the
trophy, which is now held by the speedy
Queen. Should the latter make the fastest
time over the course to-morrow Charles
Morrell, her owner, will retain possession
of the prize for good. The first race was
in last September and the second on
May 1, the Queen winning both handily.
The regatta of to-morrow will be a race
for blood, for it will be the last chance that

Among the yacnts which will contest will
be the Rover, Commodore lirucc; Elia,
Captain Ames; Pride of the Bay, Captain
W. I). Hutz; Harpoon, Captain Cook;
Whirlwind, Admiral yon Schmidt j Molly
Woggin, Captain Durner, and the Sleipner,
Murthin and McKenzie. The Flash, Cath
erine, Mist and Cisne have already been
entered in the smaller classes, but the list
will probably be greatly swelled before the
The yachts will be divided into five
classes according to the load water line
measurement. In the first class the length
wiil be under 50 and over 35 feet; second,
under 35 and over 30; third, under HO and
over 25; fourth, under 25 and over 20; and
fifth, 20 feet and under.
The sailing regulations will be those of
the San Francisco Yacht Clul>, the Sea
wanhaka rules governing the classification
and computations. The course will be
across an imaginary line from the flag on
the clubhouse wharf to the Chispa around
Shag Rock, around a stakeboat off
Angel Island bell; thence back to starting
point. The boats in the first three classes
will go twice around the course. A pre
paratory gun wiil be fired at 1:25. The
first start will be made at 1 :30 o'clock and
each successive start at intervals of ten
At 11:30 o'clock in the forenoon there
will be a race for launches. The Daring.
Mattbai's new boat, has been entered, ana
it is expected to t'Pt in the Satellite (Dr.
Buckley) and the Athlete ((ieorge Knigtit).
The greatest rivalry exists between the lat
ter craft, but the palm is conceded to that
owned by Dr. Buckley for speed in smooth
water. Colonel Knight wants a race in
smooth and rough water, and if a course
can be agreed upon by the owners to-mor
row morning the race will be run.
The formal presentation of the perpetual
challenge cup to Commodore Leonard of
the Encinal Yacht Club took place at noon
on last Wednesday. Immediately Com
modore Gutte of the San Francisco Yacht
Club presented a challenge to President
Holt of the Encinals and named the Queen
as the vessel which would compete against
any craft in the Alameda Club for the cup.
The conditions are that the challenge must
be accepted and the race sailed inside of
sixty days unless the regatta committees
of both clubs agree to a postponement for
thirty days more.
There has been some talk during the
week of the unfairness of Commodore
Gutte's challenge, it being stated that
the Encinals have no vessel to pit against
the swift Queen.
"I challenged under the rules;" said the
commodore yesterday, "and if the En
cinals haven't a boat to pit against the
Queen let them relinquish the cup, and
some other club challenge the San Fran
ciscos, that we may have a race this year
anyhow, according to the programme. •
The Encinals, however, have no idea of
relinquishing the cup without a struggle,
and it is said that they will have v boat
before the race comes off which will give
the Queen all she can do to get away with
The Encinals' regatta, which was to
have been held to-day, has been postponed
until the 24th on account of tne absence of
several of the club's boats.

The Campbell Commission Company Goes
KANSAS CITY, Mo-., July 12.— George
A. Neal and George A. Black were to-day
appointed receivers of the Campbell Com
mission Company by Judge Phillips of the
United States court. This was done at the
instigation of the Metropolitan National
Bank. The reason for the appointment
was the bill of complaint filed by the bank
against tho Campbell Company in the
United States court to-day. The receivers
are to continue the business.
The bill states that the company is an
Illinois corporation doing business in
Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, South
Omaha and Fort Worth. It has done an
extensive business in loaning money, se
cured by chattel mortgages on herds of
cattle, and by negotiable promissory notes.
These were indorsed by the company, sold
to the bank and in discounting these loans
the commission company in each case in
dorsed the note so discounted, thereby
guaranteeing the payment to the bank of
the loan. The bank loaned the company
$40,000, which was secured by chattel
mortgages. The bill states that the com
pany owes other debts to the amount of

In March, 1848, the Torrent Actually
Ceased to Flow.
Congressman Dan Lockwood of Buffalo
says that within his recollection the great
waterfall at Niagara was suspended and
that many people passed over its rocky
places dry shod. He says that the miracle
was wrought in 1848, during the month of
March. To be exact, says the Boston
Transcript, it was on the morning of
March 29, IS4B, and for several hours the
wonderful torrent did cease to flow, and
the river ran dry. The preceding winter
had been a severe one and the ice which
had formed in Lake Erie was of phenome
Then came, on March 27, a sudden ex
ceedinjrly warm spell of weather, which
melted the snows, and then a warm fain
poured dowttun torrents during the entire
day of March 28. The ice was loosened
and a strong east wind drove it far out in
the lake during the night. But at sunds*
on the 29th the wind came from the west,
and, as the sailors say, it was "blowing
great guns." This terrific gale drove the
immense mass of ice into the mouth
of the Niagara River, where it was
gorged and piled up from shore to
snore, hermetically sealing the river from
damming the waters bacic into the lake.
Tnus it happened that Niagara ran dry, its
falls became black, barren rocks and its
mighty thunders were put to sleep. With
in four or five hours tiny streams of water
began to trickle through the gorge. The
tremendous power back of those streams
accelerated their flowing, and in a short
time the ice dam gave way, and there
never was such a wild, roaring, mad flood
in Niagara before or since, and thas the
cataract became itself again.

. BOSTON, Mass., July 12.— Dave Ross,

Monday night, was given a tryout by George
Dixon, the world's feather-weight cham

not let up a bit on Ross, but fought him
as if he was contesting *to > retain his own

his showing, and they say he never did
such clever work as he did against Dixon.
The colored champion received some stiff

Splendid Showing Made on Her Third
Trial Trip. *
PROVIDENCE. R. 1., July 12.— De
fender was taken out for her third trial
spin yesterday i afternoon at Bristol, ana
although the wind almost died out at the
start, when she got down in the lower
bay, near Newport, ; there was a good
wind blowing, and while it lasted the yacht
gave a splendid account of herself. She
carried & club topsail and a jib topsail for
the ; first time, in addition to her lower
sails, and while she heeled well she gave
no indication ~of the tendency to tender
ness that was evinced on Saturday. .."
She showed wonderful ability for beat
ing into the wind, and when the wind
blew hardest she made a. "good twelve
miles an hour. Her quickness in stays is
certainly remarkable in comparison with
what American yachtsmen have been ac
customed to in their big sloops.

mons.the pugilist, has in the hands of Phil
Dwvcr as forfeit money for his coming

James H. Tookef, who recently got a
judgment of $3078 against Fitzsimmons.
JPoor Crops in England.
LONDON, E.n-g., July 12.— The Times
publishes an initial report on British crops.
It will say that owing 'to the prolonged
drought the condition of all the crops ex
cept hops compares most unfavorably with
the conditions prevailing July 1, 1894. A
comparative table gives the following:
Wheat, 79.3 in 18!>5 to 101.8 in 1894; barley,
83 in 1895 to 102.6 in 1894, and oats, 76.4 in
1895 to 105.4 in 1894.
MADE A BRAVE STRUGGLE
Stories of Cornell's Collapse
Prove to Have Been
Led the Entire Distance Until Fen
nell's Injury Resulted In
LONDON, Exo., July 12.— Much indig
nation and more amusement was caused in
Henley and in certain circles in London by
the perusal of the dispatches furnished to
certain papers in America purporting to
tell the story of the Cornell-Trinity Hall
race, excerpts from which were cabled here
from New York yesterday morning. As
examples of reckless faking they were
phenomenally brilliant, but as a chronicle
of events which actually occurred the al
leged report was in most respects without
This account said that the Cornells in
passing Fawley Court went all to pieces,
and that ''Freeborn, No. 4 in the Cornell
boat, dropped his oar and put his hands to
his face." He did not do anything of the
kind. ■ All that lie did was to keep
his hands awsy from his face and
on his oar and pull for all he was
worth. Then Hager is made to drop bis
oar and fall back in the arms of Spillman,
who, the faker says, instantly received
him. Upon the authority of tfager him
self, with the indorsement of Spillman and
thousands of others who witnessed the
scenes, Hager did not drop his oar, nor did
Spillman receive him "instantly" or other
wise, consequently Couison. the cock
swain, could not have shouted, "What are
you about there?" as he is alleged to have
Another statement made is that Free- [
born again dropped his oar and put one
hand before his eyes, Trinity in the mean
time leading seven or eight lengths at the
mile. It is needless to say that Freeborn
did not again drop his oar or put his iiand j
before his eyes, nor did Trinity lead seven !
or eight lengths at the mile. She positively
oould not, for at the mile Cornell was dis
puting her right to do so by being some
what in the lead herself.
It is true that Fennell dropped his oar,
recovered it and tried to rt»w ; but it is not ;
true that he began 'Tubbing his forehead," :
nor could any ground be found for the ;
statement that Hager again dropped his j
oar, and Dyer thereupon "began splash- !
ing." Haj:er, not having done it in the
first instance, could not possibly have
dropped his oar a second time. It is also '
true that Fennell was greatly exhausted at
the finish, but no one saw him "tumble
from his seat in a dead faint."
The race was a hard one to the Isthmian
boathouse, and there were no* defects in
the Cornell's rowinjr anywhere in the race
up to that time. Freeborn and Hager.who
were reported as spending their time "put
ting their hands before their eyeb'" and
"nibbing their foreheads," were really
rowing a game race all the way through.
The facts are that the crew started well,
and at Fawley Court Cornell led by half a
length. At the mile the boats were nearly
even. Cornell having a slight advantage,
but at this point Fennell caught a crab
and his oar struck him a violent blow in
the ribs, giving him a cramp. He recov
ered his oar quickly and tried to row
again, but the pain he suffered was so
sharp that he was unable to pull. Free
born, who sat behind him, had to cease
rowing for a moment to assist Fennell,
and that is the only foundation for the
fairy tale that he ""dropped his oar and
rubbed his forehead."
C. A. Louis, No. 7 in the Cornell boat,
says: "The boat came down in elegant
style to the mile, but seven man cannot
rowan eight-oared boat to advantage."
The foregoing denials of the reckless
statements made in many American
papers are concurred in by every member
of the Cornell crew and by scores of other
When the last census was tnken the valne
of the railroad property of this country was
considered to be equal to the cost of con
struction and equipment, as reported by
the railroad companies. No account was
taken of the increase of stock.
