SANTA ROSA, Cal., Oct. 3.— The con
struction of new municipal water works
here will commence at once. Three hun
dred tons of cast iron water pipe v ill arrive
this week from Alabama. The contract
has been awarded to Paul B. Perkins of
San Francisco, who will be here Saturday
to look after the sinking of wells for the
water supply. The first water bonds issued
were declared illegal by the courts and a
new issue was made the Ist of September.
The bonds were sold a few days afterward
at par with interest. The contract for the
construction of the works was let to Rob
ert Effey, Mayor of Santa Cruz, subse
quently Effey sublet the contract to Mr.
The new water system will be con
structed according to plans and specifica
tions submitted by C. Monjeau, which
have been accepted by the City Council.
The new system is to be a pumping system.
The source of supply will be a dozen or
more wells. The^e will be connected
together and from them water will be
pumped through mains and also into a
large reservoir, which will be used as a
reserve in case of a bin fire. The reservoir
will be located on an elevation sufficient to
give ample pressure and obviate the neces
sity of a steam engine. The work will be
pushed forward as rapidly as possible.
The Mayor and City Council have labored
long to get a new water supply, but they
have been hindered for nearly two years
by i:tig-ati«Hi on the part of many propert}"
holders. who objected to the schemes on
the pround that new works were unneces
sary and the old ones sufficient. Some of
the largest taxpayers are still opposed to
the undertaking and further suits and in
iunctions are apprehended. One suit was
begun a few days ago by the Santa Rosa
"Water Works to have the Superior Court
restrain the City Council from entering
into competition with its own grantee on
the strength of a previous contract.
The chief question involved is: Can the
city, having the right to fix rates, stand by,
and under a contract entered into in good
fait , see a company expend money to
reach a particular end, and after the end
has been reached, tax the company out of
existence to reach same end. Tne Santa
Rosa water works are owned chiefly by
Captain James McDonald of San Francisco
and Colonel M. L. McDonald of Santa
Rosa. Bonfires are blazing and a number
of our citizens are holding a jubilation
over the news.

James Conliff Cut With a Hatchet and
SANTA ROSA, Cal., Oct. 3.— A free-for
all fight occurred between Indians and
whites at the'jwinery of Phillip Glass, near
Trenton, early this morning. One white
man named James Conliff, a former con
ductor on a Clay-street car in San Fran

hatchet and is now at the j oint of death,
and four others were seriously injured.
The Indians, numbering a:>out twenty,
who were hoppickers at the yards of Peter
son & Farmer, were paid off yesterday,
and in the evening, after becon.ng intoxi
cated, began to amuse themselves in a
game of cards near the winery b ilding.
James Tinney, who lived in the neigh
borhood, came up and was attacke 1 by the
Indians and badly beaten.
The white men, who were without arms,
were soon too bruised and weak to stand
out longer against the score of intoxicated
red 3 and lied, leaving the unconscious Con
liff on the roadside.
The Indians, with their guns and
hatchets, then stood over Conliff and i:»pt
friends away. Two men brought the n> ws
here and secured a doctor, who said that
he will not live throughout the day.
The county Sheriff has arrested tie
Indians and also a Japanese named Novu

Vancouver Island Gold
Fields Swarm With
RICH PAY DIRT FOUND.
Yellow-Streaked Ledges Struck
on Mountain and in
MINERS FLOCK TO ALBERNI.
The South African Craze Repeated,
Though on a Smaller
VICTORIA, B. C, Oct. 3.— A gold craze,
similar to that which is attracting hordes
of capitalists and adventurers to South
Africa, though on a somewhat smaller
scale, has seized upon the people of Vic
toria and Western British Columbia. Big
finds have been made in the Alberni gold
fields, on Vancouver Island, and about
eighty miles from this city.
Every day men come and go between the
hills and the little town of Alberni on
Barclay Sound. Those who go out from
the town bear heavy packs of supplies and
blankets to serve them while on their pros
pecting tour. They return with heavier
packs. The supplies have been consumed
and in their place are huge fragments of
quartz, broken from the outcropping of
some distant ledge and put aside for assay.
The existence of gold in the Alberni
locality has long been known. As far
back as 1873 Assayer Phillips of San Fran
cisco visited the benches of China Creek,
which has since been taken up for hydraul
icking purposes, and reported favorably
upon them. He said at the time that
sooner or later Alberni would be noted for
its diamonds. He believed that he saw in
the earth and the hills indications of the
presence of brilliants of pure quality.
Of the value of the qnartz he did not
speak with much certainty, as none of the
ledges had then been opened up, and there
was very little in sight to encourage the
examiner. In consequence of his report a
company of Victorians, who had taken up
claims on China Creek (one of the aurifer
ous veins of the locality), stored their tools
and left the section. Prospectors have
now these implements, rusted and worth
The principal theater of action in the
district now is Mineral Hill, which lies in
a southerly direction, some thirteen miles
from Alberni. The approach to it is steep
and rugged, but the mines so far known
are located on the hill's crest. They are
the Missing Link, Champion and Alberni.
High-grade ore has been struck in all
three. The Missing Link resembles the
Alberni rock closely, being of a dark-blue
color, thickly spotted with free gold and
assaying from $100 to $400 to the ton. The
Champion rock is of a grayish blue hue,
and carries a great deal of siilphurets. The
location of these mines is 3300 feet above
sea level, and from them ia obtained a
splendid view of the surrounding country,
with peak rising behind peak and the dis
tant ocean plainly seen on a clear day far
to the west, presenting a panorama of
various colors and of snow-capped pin
At first it was supposed that the mineral
wealth was confined to the west side of
Mineral Hill, but recent explorations of
prospectors have demonstrated that there
exist ledges of great width and of much ap
parent wealth on the east side. An opin
ion of a competent miner is that Mineral
Hill is one mass of gold-bearing ore and
that the mineral belt is about thirty-five
miles in length by twelve miles in width,
extending in a northwesterly direction to
So far there have been no discoveries on
the east shores of the Alberni canal worth
mentioning, but paying ledges are said to
be there. Placer diggings were struck in
1865 on Bear Biver, a stream that falls into
Clayoquot Sound, on the west coast, some
thirty miles north of Alberni. The placers
were soon worked out, and as no one
looked for quartz in those days the place
was abandoned. Interest has recently been
attracted to Bear Paver and in early spring
the country about Clayoquot will be thor
From Mineral Hill in a northwesterly
direction quartz is found in nearly every
hill. One vein is eighty feet in width. It
lies at the head of Granite Creek, in the
Starlight country, on the side of Mount
Lorimer. The assay returns have been
very small, but the quantity being un
limited, it will pay to work. The country
along Granite Creek appears to be highly
mineralized. Floa rock is found every
where, and ledges of seven feet or less in
width are frequent. At the headquarters
of this creek quartz carrying sulphurets
and in some cases free gold is abundant.
On Coleman Creek a party is now work
ing on the mountain a deposit resembling
a great quarry of queer- looKing rock.
Some of this has been assayed and the dis
coverer states that he has had an assay of
$480 to the ton. The Star of the West
shows an assay value of $63 70, the Happy
Lover $40 and the Islander $41 60. This
latter assay is by Price of San Francisco.
In South Africa $20 rock is a bonanza and
pays 100 per cent on the capitalization of
Two or three years ago it would have
been impossible to make rock like that
found in South Africa and Alberni pay the
cost of working, as much passed away with
the tailings and was lost. But now the
cyanide process has made the saving of
gold from ore hitherto regarded as refrac
tory an easy matter, and therein lies Al
A circumstance which strikes the visitor
to Alberni favorably is the confidence the
prospector has in the ultimate success of
the mining enterprise. Every man carries
his hope and expectation of happiness in
his coat pocket or in his hand. The ever
ready magnifying glass is constantly in ac
tion and on all sides groups of men may
be seen peering through its lens at the
latest find of quartz. At every doorstep
and window-sill, on every sidewalk, in the
hotels, the shops and in every quiet family
circle, quartz is produced for examination
and criticism. It forms the entire burden
of conversation by young and old. All
other matters sink into insignificance.
Even the impending provincial election is
forgotten when a prospector reaches the
town and opens his pack to show his gold
rock and tells of the glories of some new
With such prospects ahead it is nat
ural to think the mining feeling is buoyant
here, and Victorians cannot be wondered
at for anticipating in the near future a real
South African boom on Vancouver Island.

SACRAMENTO, Cal., Oct. 3. — Roy
Gould, the baby incendiary of Sacramento,
has been held to answer before the Supe
rior Court on a charge of arson, with bail
fixed. at 1000. Since his incarceration in
the City Prison he has made two deliberate
attempts to fire the building, and has in
dulged in the grossest language when pre
vented from accomplishing his purpose.
Although but 6 years old he has clearly
demonstrated the fact that ne possesses
the innate disposition of a demon. When
the po.'ice sergeant attempted to remove
him to another cell where it would be im
possible to build a fire, he bit the officer's
hands and swore like a pirate. The little

appearance of his vicious inclinations.
On the contrary, he possesses a pretty
babyish face with large soft eyes that ap

same soft eyes can flash with the ferocity

years of the accused, although there was a
case on record where an Illinois court had
decided that a child of 5 years of age was
capable of committing a crime and the
culprit had been convicted.
In this case it became absolutely neces

further jeopardize the property of the resi
dents of Sacramento, as his parents seemed
to be totally unable to prevent him from
committing incendiary attempts. It was
impossible under the existing law to com

thought that the lad could be convicted of

This report was satisfactory, and will do
much toward strengthening the subordi
