Secret Contracts Being Made
With San Joaquin
LOWER RATES OFFERED.
One of the Methods to Be Used
Against the Competing
AFTEE THE WHEAT-GROWERS.
How the Matter Is Viewed by a
Prominent Merchant of the
Engrossed as C. P. Huntington's mind
must necessarily be with the attempt to
Dass a funding bill in Congress and to win
the suit pending in the Federal court in
this City to prevent a reduction in rates
by the State Railroad Commission, he has
still found time apparently to formulate a
plan by means of which he expects to con
trol a considerable portion of the trans
portation business of the San Joaquin
Valley for some time to come, in spite of
the advent of the Vulley road in that sec
tion of the State.
From a gentleman who is a large grain
grower and prominent in commercial
circles in the San Joaquin Valley and who
is now on a visit to this City, it is learned
that the Southern Pacilic Company now
has, and for some time has had, a large
corps of solicitors throughout the San
Joaquin Valley at the points which the
Valley road will touch, whose business it
is to make transportation contracts with
the large shippers of grain, as well as with
the more prominent merchants.
These contracts, according to the state
ment of tne gentlemen named, are drawn
for three years, provide for all transporta
tion business being done exclusively with
the Southern Pacific, and in return for this
the railroad company makes special rates,
considerably lower than those now in
The wort of these solicitors is done in a
quiet and exceedingly cautious manner.
For this course there are two gooa reasons.
assigned. It is, of course, a most impor
tant requisite that the intending competi
tor of the Southern Pacific shall not be
made aware of what is beine done in this
direction, in order that the desired object —
that of freezing out this competitor from
its due share of business — may be accom
A further reason, and one not less
important, is that the contracts thus made,
giving as they do a lower rate to some
persons than are given to the general
public, are a violation of that clause of the
State constitution which prohibits dis
crimination in rates, reading as follows:
No discrimination in charges or facilities for
transportation shall be made by any railroad
or other transportation company between
places and persons, or the facilities for the
transportation of the same classes of freight or
passengers within the State or coming from or
going to any other State.
So carefully have the emissaries of the
Southern Pacific carried on their opera
tions that tneir work has not attracted
public attention heretofore, although they
have been at work for some weeks.
The Call's informant, for obvious rea
sons, does not desire to have his name di
vulged, as he was one of those approached
by an agent of the Southern Pacific. He
declined their overtures, however, as he
realized, he said, what would be the result
if the machinations of this corporation
were furthered by those whom the San
Joaquin road is designed to deliver from
the bondage of the Southern Pacific Com
pany. That this gentleman understands
the full import of the scheme of the Hunt
ington monopoly is shown in the words in
which he expressed himself.
"I cannot understand," he said, "how
any man with sound sense can be induced
to bind himself to the Southern Pacific
Company at this critical period for three
years. Surely every one wbo ships a
pound of freight out of the valley must
understand that any favors that are
granted, or appear to oe granted, by the
Souther Pacific at this time are simply
proffered in order that the path and
progress of the competing road now near
ing completion may be made difficult and
its operation, if possible, unprofitable.
"They seemingly do not realize that this
is not one of those projects that, owing to
the lack of capital, is likely to be bought
or controlled by Huntington & Co. They
lose sight of the fact that its head and
most enthusiastic projector is a man who
has undertaken to give the people of Cali
fornia a genuine competing railroad ; that
ne and his associates have the necessary
capital, perseverance and ability to cope
with the great monopoly, and, what is
more, have the desire and determination
to win victory in this great battle of
money, brains and principle.
"If the people of the San Joaquin Val
ley make any combination with the South
ern Pacific Company that is designed to
tamper or interfere in any way with the
progress and prosperity of the San Fran
cisco and San Joaquin Valley Railway
they will simply be thwarting tho efforts
of those whose interests are very closely
allied to their own, and any injury that
may result to the Valley road will be
reflected and intensified among them
selves. For the good reputation of the
valley, for its future welfare, for the wel
fare of the State, I should be extremely
sorry to learn that this latest scheme con
cocted by the Southern Pacific to retain its
monopolistic grip on the richest section of
the State is even partially successful."

It is highly important for each league to ob

in which" the league is located — that is, the
total number of men, women and children m
the race in each county; the number engaged
in business pursuits, their different occupa
tions; the number of property-owners, the es
timated value of property owned by tnem, and
any other data that may 'lie important for tha
members of the congress to possess, and that
can be used to the advantßgfi of tiie race his

"In view of the coming campaign this
session of the congress will be the most
important in its history," said President
Morton yesterday. "There are many
matters of interest not only to ourselves
but the public at large to be considered.
The colored vote in this State now numbers
about 7000, and we feel that it is time some
acknowledgment was made for the good
we have done the Kepublican party."
The Bay State Restaurant.
A large crowd was entertained last even
ing at the Bay State restaurant, 13 and 15
Stockton street, by the proprietor, Max
Adler, and his assistants, the occasion
being the formal opening of the place since
its enlargement. Under Mr. Adler's man
agement this restaurant has acquired such
popularity that he found his old quarters
inadequate to accommodate his trade and
he has added the adjoining store, No. 13,
to his former quarters. In the new part is
located the bar, as well as the gentlemen's
entrance to the main dining-room, which
is located in the rear. The old number is
used for a separate entrance for ladies.
Twenty new private dining-rooms have
been added and the place has been reno
vated and repainted throughout. The Bay
State is famous for such delicacies as frogs'
legs, terrapin, etc., also for broiled steaks
and chops, ana is well patronized by epi
cures who appreciate the excellence of the

think that he would be deformed for life
that she had called at the hospital as soon
as she was able to see what could be done.
Dr. Weil said the best thing to do would
be to amputate the unnecessary thumb.
It would leave a slight scar for life, but
that would be much better than having
the two thumbs.
Mrs. Marks consented to the operation
and it was quickly performed by Dr. Weil.
The baby bore the operation like a veteran
and scarcely made a whimper.
The accessory thumb, which was ampu

metacarpal bone and was of perfect shape
and as long as the other.

Arrival of the Steamship Mono

Captain H. L. Howison to Command
the Oregon— A Mexican War-
Vessel in Port.
The Oceanic steamship Monowai, Cap
tain Carey, arrived yesterday morning
twenty-six days, nine hours and thirty
minutes from Sydney by way of Auckland,
Apia and Honolulu. She brought an un
usually large passenger list, of wiiich the
following named came in the cabin:
John Mills is one of the principal share
holders in the Union steamship line to
which belongs the Monowai. R. V. Web
ster ia a wealthy tea-planter from Ceylon
making a tour of the world. Joseph I.
Sheerin, a prominent architect from Syd
ney who designed all the principal build
ings of that city, is traveling around the
world. W. G. Irwin is the agent of the
Oceanic Steamship Company in Honolulu.
From the passengers of the Monowai de
tails of a wholesale murder of traders and
missionaries by Solomon Island head-hunt
ers are gleaned. The savages are reported
to have butchered tbe crew of a boat from
the trading brig Rio Loge, and at Rubiana
two French and one American trader
were killed. The mission on the island
had been attacked, and the white people
there begged the captain of the steamer
Titus to take them away.
The natives of the Manning Straits isl
ands are fierce and cruel, like those of the
Solomon group, and are given to cannibal
ism. Recently they lured ashore the
crews of two small trading-schooners and
put the luckless sailors to death. At
Southwest Bay, on Tounan Island, a mis
sionary named Boyd and one companion
were missing, and it is thought they have
been murdered. A number of trading
posts were found sacked and destroyed.
On the island of Nusa in the Bismarck
Archipelago a few weeks ago a chief
named Balek, who was known as a cruel
murderous man, fell into the hands of a
band of savages. He was sneared to death,
and his body roasted and eaten. The
feast lasted several hours.
