THE CRATER OF
MOKUAWEOWEO,
Boiling Lake of Lava Found
by a Venturesome
Hawaiian.
A SCENE OF GRANDEUR
Fountains of Molten Matter Are
Spouting Hundreds of Feet
Into the Air.
SURPASSING EVEN XILATJEA.
Now There Is a Great Rush of
Tourists to See the Greatest
of Eruptions.
HONOLULU. Hawaii, May I.— Volcano
news is the principal topic of conversation
here to the exclusion of politics, the Legis
lature and almost everything else. No di
rect news from the crater itself has been
received until about two hours since, when
the Kinau arrived from her usual run to
ports on Hawaii.
Purser George Beckley of that vessel
says that a telephone message was re
ceived at Hilo just before the Kinau
started to the effect that a native had
Jeft for the scene of the outbreak on
Monday last, the 27th, and had succeeded
in reaching the edge of the great crater
and obtained a very fair view of the new
eruption. He found a boiling lake of lava
in trie summit crater which was a good
two miles in diameter and extremely act
ive. Tbe lake was constantly rising, and
the indications of an overflow were immi
nent. He says the whole surface of the
lake presents a scene of grandeur impossi
ble to describe. There were fountains
spouting molten laya hundreds of feet
into the air, great turbulence over the
entire lake, and a display of seething,
surging lava such as he never saw before
in either Kilauea or Mokuaweoweo.
Purser Beckley says the glare in the sky
is continually increasing in brightness,
and there is no longer any doubt that the
great volcano is making up for its nine
years of quiescence.
The Kinau also brings news of the re
newed activity in the crater of Kilauea,
which broke out a few weeks ago, but after
ward subsided. Mr. Beckley Bays the
lake is rising rapidly, and the display is
eraud. It is thirty miles from the Volcano
House, at the Kilauea crater, to the big
volcano at the summit of Mokuaweoweo;
consequently the tourist eoing to tne lat
ter wilKsee the former first, as all expedi
tions for the summit outfit and start from
the Volcano House. As the road is rough
horses, packtraina and tents have to be
taken along, but all of these can be ob
tained of Manager Peter Lee, who is pre
pared for just such emergencies.
Every steamer and sailing vessel which
comes into port brings glowing accounts
of the grand view obtained at sea of the
volcano at night. Some idea of the ex
tent of the present eruption may be gained
from the fact that the glare is distinctly
visible after the moon goes down from
Diamond Head, the well-known landmark
near this city. The distance is over 200
miles from Honolulu, and when the wind
is blowing In this direction the Bmoke
from the volcano can be seen in this city.
A party of Honolulu people, consisting
of Daniel Logan, editor of the Bulletin,
F. S. Dodge of the Government Survey
Department, Rev. Dr. Dille of San Fran
cisco and D. Howard Hitchcock, a local
artist, left on the last trip of the Kinau,
and must be at the crater by this time, but
they have not yet been beard from. Mr.
Logan writes to his paper from Mahukona
that the view from that place at night is
grand in the extreme, and very much like
that of Vesuvius.
Mr. Hitchcock, the artist, sent rough
sketches of the scene at night and in the
daytime from Mahukona, thirty miles
away. It is the only authentic sketch
of the present outbreak which has yet
come to hand. The steamer W. G. Hall,
which sailed for Hawaii to-day, took quite
a number of tourists for the wonderful
sight.
A FFAIRS OF THE ISLANDS.
Princess Kaiulani Will Get the Pension
Granted.
HONOLULU, Hawai'. May ' 10.— The
f grant of $2000 a year pension to Princess
Kaiulani has become a law.
Julien D. Hayne of the Hawaiian Maga
zine married a rich widow last year in
Florida, professing to be a wealthy coffee
planter of twenty-five years' experience in
Hawaii. Her son, in Ohio, is trying to
learn Hayne's record, which is a mystery
up to three years ago. lie has learned that
Hayne insured his mother's life for $10,000,
and believes her to be in danger from him.
The son is taking measures for her pro
tection.
Damon's bill for refunding bonds was de
feated in the Senate by a vote of 7 to 6on
April 27. Capitalists are generally opposed
to the measure, being unwilling to lose so
convenient an investment for their surplus
dividends as Hawaiian bonds at G per cent.
The subject of a new loan for public im
provements is under active discussion in
the Senate. The only question is whether
to seek a low rate of interest in London,
allowing a large discount, or to place the
bonds in Honolulu at 6 per cent or a little
less. Local capitalists are hungry for the
latter arrangement as an investment for
the large sugar dividends now pouring in.
SUNATEND AT URLLEN.
Committees Arrive to Prepare Reports for
the High Court.
UKIAH, Cal., May 9.— Members of the
several committees of the Ancient Order
of Foresters came here on to-day's train to
attend the High Court meeting of that
body, which convenes in this place next
Tuesday. About 300 delegates are to
come and much important business is to
be brought before the High Court. The
committee on laws and supervision, con
sisting of Georee W. Lunt and George F.
Brown of San Francisco and J. F. Mannon
of Ukiah, is in session to day and a report
on 120 amendments to the laws governing
lodges throughout the State is to be sub

Valley Railway Inspected.
STOCKTON, Cal., May 9.— Secretary
Mackay of the San Joaquin Valley Rail
road returned this evening from a trip of
inspection over the line. He declared on
his return that the stretch between here
aud the bridge now beiag built across tbe
Merced River was the best in the State.
Superintendent McFarland expects the
Merced River bridge to be completed by
the 15th inst., when the work of track-lay
ing will be again commenced.
PORTLAND HORSE COMING.
Thoroughbreds to Be Exhibited at Ban
Frnnciacn's Horse Show.
PORTLAND, Or., May 9.— W. L. Wil
liamson, representing the Horse Show
Association of the Pacific Coast, is in Port
land interesting Oregon owners of thor
oughbreds in plans for the next horse
show to be held at the Bay City. Mr.
Williamson is making a general tour of
the Pacific Coast and States, and is awak
ening horsemen to the fact that it will be
to their advantage to place their horses on
exhibition at the show in December. In
Portland Mr. Williamson has been meet
ing with very gratifying success, and a
number of owners of fine stock have signi
fied their willingness to co-operate with
tho managers in making the show a great
event.
The second annual hoise show, in De
cember of last year, proved to be such a
popular success that it was decided by the
board of directors that it should be made
more of a Pacific Coast horse show and less
of a California show. Mr. Williamson
says they will have 500 horses on exhibi
tion this year. He has been out to Irving,
ton Park and the Witch hazel farm look
ing at the high-steppers.
WILLOWS MURDER CASE.

patch from Willows states that the
jury in the case of W. A. Sehorn,
charged with the killing of W. A. Putnam
at Willows a short time ago, had agreed on
a verdict of manslaughter. Sehorn will
appeal.
This is the second trial that
Sehorn has had on the charge of killing
Putnam. Tbe first jury failed to agree.
The Superior Judge of Colusa County has
been presiding in the case, and also the
Prosecuting Attorney of Colusa County.
The jury on the first ballot stood seven for
acquittal, two for manslaughter and three
for murder.
REJOICING AT STANFORD.
Palo Altoans Pleased With the
Result of the Final Game
of Baseball.
Gratifying Record in Athletics Dur
ing the Year — Current Events at
the University.
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Cal., May
9.— The feeling of joy here over the result
of the last intercollegiate baseball game
yesterday is almost as great us after the
recent intercollegiate field-day. The base
ball game was by far the finest played b}
either team this semester. Stanford had
found that her continued supremacy was
likely to receive a rude shock and all stu
dents here felt a thrill of uneasiness when
the team left for San Jose. The result,
however, left no doubt in the minds of
anyone that, while the two teams are both
good, Stanford's is the superior. All tue
members of the team say that they were
forced to play their best game or meet with
defeat and they determined to win if hard
playing could do it.
With the track events at San Jose and
tbe baseball game athletics for the year are
over, so far as the two colleges are con
cerned. Never before ha 9 Stanford had
so many victories to her credit. In not a
single athletic event has she been defeated,
with the exception of the freshmen foot
ball game. On the other hand she can
point to four intercollegiate championship
victories, all won within the last two
months.
The seniors are making elaborate prepa
rations for their commencement week ex
ercises. The seniors' farce, entitled "An
Intercollegiate Affair," is behi£ rehearsed
daily, and those in charge promise that it
will be the finest performance of its kind
ever «iven at Stanford. The farce itself is
said to be unusually clever and original
in its ie'eas and situations, while most of
[ those who will assume the several roles
have proved themselves decidedly clever
amatenrs. Another feature of the com
mencement week exercises will be the
sophomore freshmen peace-making. Tne
event is to be made more interesting this
year than last by the introduction of many
new ceremonies.
The zoological laboratory is in receipt of
another collection of tishes from Jamaica,
sent by a missionary — H. C. Robert-*. This
is the third collection sent by Mr. Roberts,
whose work is being done under the
auspices of the Hopkins fund. The new
collection is said to include several very
rare specimens of marine life.
Several collecting expeditions are to be
sent out from the university this summer.
Itutter and Schofield, two students, intend
to visit the most likely points in Alaska in
the interests of the laboratories, while
other students will work in the Northwest
States, making collections of fishes and
mammalia. It is quite possible that several
other expeditions will b9 formed later to
carry on work at promising points in
Western States.
Dr. Jordan stated to-day to a Call repre
sentative that the chair in law, left vacant
by the resignation of Professor Woodruff,
would not be filled this year. An assistant
would be appointed by Professor Abbott,
head of the department, to carry on the
work next year, but no appointment to the
chair would be ma<le until $4000 could be
offered to some first-rate law professor.
Anton .Schott, the German tenor, sang
here this evening. The Encina Gym
nasium was well filled to hear the artist.
A programme consisting entirely of Wag
nerian selections was rendered in a manner
that will never be forgotten by those
present. This was the second concert
niven here by Anton Schott during the
past three weeks.
INQUEST AT SAN LUIS.
Dr. Smith JUet His Death by Being
Thrown from a Horse.
SAN LUlti OBISPO, Cal., May 9.— The
evidence in the Coroner's inquest held
to ascertain the cause of the death of
Dr. F. H. Smith "returned a verdict that
deceased came to his death through in
juries received by a horse that he was
riding falling down with him.
A number of witnesses were examined
and there was nothing brought out which
indicated a murder. The verdict clears
the mystery of the case. Dr. Smith was
the dentist who was thrown from his horse
on t tie 29th of April while returning from
the barbecue of the Native Sons at Syca
more Springs. On account of the peculiar
fracture of the skull it was hard to believe
that it was sustained by a fall from his
horse, hence the action of the Coroner in
holding an investigation. The doctor rode
a lively horse, and in reining it up it
reared, falling over backward. There was
nothing in the testimony of the witnesses
to indicate that he was intoxicated at the
tin.c of the accident as was supposed.
The body was shipped to Philadelphia,
accompanied by the late doctor's wife.
Dr. Smith belonged to one of the leading
families of Philadelphia, who are quite
wealthy.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, MAY 10, 1896.
DESERT PUGET
SOUND'S FLEET.
Sealing Vessels Prefer to
Sail Under the Flag
of England.
ARE BETTER PROTECTED
British Captains Not Supposed
to Observe Bering Sea
Regulations.
CAN KILL WITH IMPUNITY.
Canadian Shipping Profits by the
Activity of American Revenue
Cutters.
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., May 9.—
Owners and backers of sealing schooners
on Fuget Sound are much discouraged
over the outlook for profitable work this
year, it being assumed by agents that only
one sealing schooner, the Eppinger, has
this year returned with enough skins to
meet expenses.
But the Eppinger has been here for more
than a week vainly endeavoring to find a
purchaser for its catch, and will leave to
morrow morning for San Francisco with
the skins in the hope of meeting with
i better success there. Captain White of
i the Eppinger is very much disgusted with
the sealing outlook, from the standpoint
of the American sealer especially, and says
he will float the British flag when next he
goes out.
"There does not appear to be much in
the fnture for the sealskin trade," said
Captain White, "at least not under the
American flag. There is a lot of rigama
role to go through by the captains of seal
ers that is simply foolishness.
"Kegulations require that a log shall be
! kept showing the day's domes, the nnm
| ber of seals taken, where found, in what
quantities, whether rolling, fhinine or
what, and all this takes a lot of time that
ought to be spent at business, instead of
I foolishness like this. This is what I think
about it, and it is what every American
', sealer thinks.
There's one thing that a sealer can do,
and that is to go under the British flag,
' and that's what a good many of them will
\ do, as some have already done this sea
1 son. The British sealers have a
great advantage over the American
when out at work, and under
i the refusal of the British Government
1 to agree to the regulations that have been
- provided by the United States Revenue
Department, British sealeis are not sub
| ject to anything like the restrictions that
! surround American vessels."
It is indisputable that the United States
j regulations have always operated to drive
j our sealers from under the protection of
< the American flag.
Five years ago Puget Sound was the
; rendezvous for a big fleet of sealing schoon-
e rs, and they were outfitted on this side at
the opening of the season and returned
! here for the close season, the business at
that time being in line for developing into
: one of the chief shipping industries of
1 Puget Sound.
But sealers were not long in learning
that the American flag afforded them lit
tle or no protection in pursuit of what
, they considered legitimate operations.
: They were pursued by revepue cutters and
j seized for doing what British schooners
I alongside of them were doing with impu
! nity.
The greater part of the American
schooners were not lone under the Ameri
can flag after they realized the situation,
and the greater part of the "British" seal
j ing fleet this year celebrated the Fourth of
j July in a manner that would do credit to
the most patriotic American merchant
man afloat.
SEATTLE'S DIVORCE CASE,
Twenty Californians Depose in
Defense of Accused Mrs.
Dawson.
Deny That She Was Intoxicated at
the Fiesta in Los
Angeles.
SEATTLE, Wash., May 9.— Ex-Mayor
J. T. Ronald has returned from Cali
fornia, whither he went in the interests
of his client, Mrs. R. L. Dawson, against
whom suit for divorce is pending. As a
result of the visit Mrs. Dawson will go into
court with the depositions of twenty or
more witnesses who will swear that Mrs.
Dawson's deportment was ladylike while
in California. Attorney Ronald inter
viewed nearly one hundred people who
knew Mrs. Dawson and he says they all
spoke well of her conduct during her resi
dence in California.
It will be shown that George Kinseyand
his wife, formerly Lottie Evans, hare
made statements in their depositions
which were untrue and which they knew
to be untrue. For instance: Kinsey swore
that on the last day and night of ths fiesta
at Los Angeles, Mrs. Da'.vson, Mrs. Rey
nolds and Mr. Eckstrom were carousing
about the streets, and that Mrs. Dawson
was intoxicated ; that in the morning she
went around en masque, and once when
she mot Kinsey tried to kiss him. It was
with difficulty! Kir.scy swore, that he ex
tricated himself. Ronald says he will be
able to show that Eckstrom has been a
friend of Mrs. Dawson and family for
years; that he is a temperance advocate
and a prominent merchant, and that he
was with the two women, but they were
sober and conducted themselves as ladies
at all times.
The Kinseys disappeared before they
gave the depositions in favor of Dr. Davr
son. The latter afterward alleged that
they had been gotten out of the way by
Mrs. Dawson, but the woman's counsel
proved that the charge was untrue. Ronald
was unable to locate them and is satisfied
they are not in Los Angeles.
The deposition of W. N. Barber Jr. of
Los Angeles has been received by the
County Clerk, and Ju<lee Humes ordered
it published, at the request of counsel for
Dr. Dawson. Barber gave testimony fa
vorable to Dr. Dawson. He is but 23
years of age, and his home is at Chats
worth Park, in Los Angeles County. He
at once goes into the matter of George
Kinsey's meeting two women, one of
whom is alleged to be Mrs. Dawson, at the
fieata in 1896. Barber dg«s cot say who
the women were, but says he was with
Kinsey when the latter met them. He
says :
"We walked along Spring street, and
near Court street we met this woman, and
3he was with another woman. One of
them put her arms about his neck and
said, 'Hello, George, when did you get
back ?' I did not hear bis reply. I walked
on a few steps, and did not hear any of
the conversation, except when she said,
'Hello, George,' and he talked to her for
about fifteen or twenty minutes, and then
he came up to me and then turned down
Court street in the vicinity of the Vienna
Buffet.
"The women were both dressed, so far as
I could see, in black dresse-. It might
have been blue, but it looked black at
night, and they had on what are com
monly called dominos. The women acted
as if they were intoxicated. I don't know
for sure, but they acted so. I judged they
were from the way they walked and were
carrying on, and when they turned down
Court street they looked to me as if they
were going down to the Vienna Buffet. We
lost track of them right by the Vienna.
They were going from one side of the
street to the other, and laughing and fall
ing against men that they happened to
pass. All that Kinsey told me was that
they were a couple of women that he knew
up in the northern part of the State. He
did not say in which city nor anything of
tbe kind."
In the cross-examination Barber said
thousands of people were on the streets
joking and jostling each other, many be
ing in mask. He had seen but few
women intoxicated and did not drink him
self. The two women he saw were not of
a degraded type.
Just how soon the Dawson case will
come on for trial is a question. Counsel
for Mrs. Dawson is now preparing inter
rogatories which will be submitted to
court soon and then forwarded to Califor
nia, where they will be answered and re
turned. The plaintiff will have some
cross-interrogatories to be answered, and
after that both sides will be ready to come
into court and have the case aired finally.
SAN BENITO GRAND JURY
Ex-County Treasurer Montgom
ery Indicted on Charges of
Embezzlement.
Outcome of a Fierce Political Fight
That Has Been Waged for
Years.
HOLLISTER, Cal., May 9.— The Grand
Jury to-day returned an indictment of six
counts against E. B. Montgomery, for
merly Treasurer of San Bsnito County.
The indictment charges the embezzlement
of public money.
Three months ago Montgomery resigned
from office and made good several thou
sand dollars' shortage, and it was gener
ally supposed this was the end of the
trouble. Judge Breen. however, called a
special Grand Jury session to investigate.
The jury was composed of farmers, who
probed deeply into the conduct of every
county olticer, and openly announced their
intention to "make a clean sweep."
Montgomery is well known throughout
the State, and is one of the most popular
men in the county. His losses are attrib
uted more to carelessness and inability to
resist the importunities of friends than to
dishonesty. The indictment is the out
come of a fierce political fight that has
been waged in this county for some years.
Montgomery's bail of $^■00 was furnished
within a few minutes alter the return of
the indictment was made public. The
jury has several cards up its sleeve yet,
and it is reported that more indictments
for misconduct In office will follow.
THE SEATTLE LEPER.
Authorities in a Quandary as to Whither
They Should Send the Un
fortunate.
SEATTLE, Wash., May 9.— The authori
ties, State, county and city, are very much
puzzled as to what disposition shall be
made of the leper discovered in this city. It
is possible that an application will be made
to have the victim placed in a certainl aza
retto in British Columbia, maintained at
the expense of the Dominion Government ;
but should the request be granted in this
instance the State of Washington would
have to psy for the leper's keeping for
life.
The man gives his name as Abel John
son. He is a Russian, 42 years old and
was naturalized in Montana. He claims
to have resided on the Puget Sound four
veara. Health Officer Palmer believes
Johnson had the disease in his system
before leaving Russia, though the" leper
says he has been ailing only about two
months.
SACRAMENTO DECISION.
All Indictment* Against Election Officer*
Are Quashed.
SACRAMENTO, Cal.. May 9.— Judge
Ilinkson rendered a decision this morning
quashing all the indictments found by the
Grand Jury against the election officers in
connection with the First Ward election
scandal disclosures in this city.
The decision is baaed on the failure f o
apprise defendants of their rights at the
time they gave testimony before the Grand
Jury. It is thought that a similar pro
ceeding will be had in the matter of
charges brought against the members of
the Board of Supervisors.
Chairman Morrison of the County Board
of Supervisors when called to the stand
said that he had been summoned before
the Grand Jury to testify as to certain
matters pertaining to the Board of Super
visors.
He had not been told that lie did not
have to testify and made no objection to
answering the questions, because he sup
posed he had to answer them. He went
before the Grand Jury a second time
voluntarily.
He had heard that Dr. C. B. Nichols had
been before the Grand Jury and accused
the Supervisors of selling him his position
as City Physician for $300 and he
wanted to set this matter right and
had gone before the Grand Jury and asked
them to indict him so that he could go
into court and clean his skirts of the
charge. The Grand Jury, however, would
not give him any satisfaction, and Fore
man Weil laughed at him.
SACRAMENTO BEE SUED.
C. B. Gillmmn Wants 5.f0.000 Damages
.From the Paper.
SACRA MKNTO, Cal., May 9.— C. H.
Oilman, who recently secured a decision of
the Supreme Court confirming the decision
of the Superior Court giving him $500
damages against the Evening Bee for libel,
commenced suit to-day againßt the paper
for $50,000 damages.
The paper Intely reprinted the original
article on which the verdict was secured,
using it as a text upon which to dilate and
show that the decision of the court was
unjust, although it might be the law as it
stands.
The Astoria Fishermen* War.
ASTORIA, Ob.. May 9.— Five hundred
fishermen with a snag-puller visited Des
demor.ia sands this afternoon, and de
stroyed several fish traps. These sands, a
few miles below the city, are not a part of
Sand Island, where Government troops
are in possession, but adjoining it.
kui.iun's Early fruit Shipments.
SUISUN, Cal., May 9.— Sutsun takes
the lead this year in the shipments of

The first carload to leave the State was
sent out from Sui&un this evening.
QUEER HOLD-UP
OF A FRESNOITE.
Claims He Was Forced by-
Two Men to Sign
a Note.
ONE HAD A REVOLVER.
Thrust the Muzzle Against His
Head and Ordered Him
to Write.
DEATH WAS THE ALTERNATIVE
Yielded to Their Demands to Save His
Life— The Alleged Robbers
Arrested.
FRESNO, Cal., May 9.— G. L. Ferrel to
day swore to a complaint in Justice St.
John's court, charging George Rupert and
Samuel Packwood with robbery. Rupert
was immediately arrested and procured
bail, with his wife and Mrs. Sarah Brown
as sureties. Packwood was arrested at
Santa Cruz on a telegraphic warrant dur
ing the afternoon.
Ferrel alleges that Rupert and Packwood
forced him to aun a note in favor of Ru
pert to the amount of $80.
According to his statement they got him
into Rupert's saloon on a pretense of get
ting a drink. There was no one else in the
room at the time. Packwood drew a pistol
and leveled it at the complainant's head .
Rupert closed the doors of the place, and
while Packwood was holding the pistol to
Ferrel's head the note was produced. He
was threatened with death if he would not
sign it. He did as directed, as he was in
great fear of his life at the time.
Rupert tells a different story. Ferrel
had been tending bar in his saloon and
borrowed $80 from him. Rupert became
distrustful of Ferrel and insisted on a note
for $80. The Baloon-keeper claims that he
did not make any pretense of force. After
signing the note Ferrel went about town
telling that Rupert and Packwood had
forced him to sign it.
Rupert says that when he heard this he
became very angry and went before United
States Court Commissioner Prince and
swore to a complaint charging Ferrel with
opening a letter which had been left at the
saloon while Ferrel was in his employ.
The examination of Ferrel before Prince
resulted in a dismissal.
The case is attracting considerable atten
tion. George Rupert has been in the
saloon business here almost since the
founding of the city. Packwood is well
known throughout the county.
PORTLAND FIEND'S MANIA
Strangler Cosgrove Believes He
Is Commissioned to Take
Human Life.
Once Attempted to Choke the Mother
Superior of a Vancouver
Convent.
PORTLAND, Or., May 9.-Dr. W. H.
Wall of Vancouver, Wasn., was in Port
land to-day, in company with Detectives
Welsh and Cody. He visited the Tounty
Jail, to identify John R. Cosgrove, the
thug who attempted to strangle Marie
Leville, a French woman in the White
chapel. In Cosgrove the doctor renocnized
a man whom some weeks ago he treated in
the Sisters' hospital in Vancouver. There,
the doctor says, he evinced the same mur
derous tendency which led to the at
tempted murder bere on the night of
April 28.
One day Cosgrove essayed to choke to
death the mother superior, and on the fol
lowing day he made a similar attack upon
a sister. Then Dr. Wall concluded that
Cosgrove must be insane. He was exam
ined by a commission in lunacy and regu
larly committed to the Steilacooaa Asylum
for the Insane.
The doctor was ignorant of the man's
discharge from the infirmary until he read
an account of his arrest here. Dr. Wall at
once wired to the asylum regarding Cos
grove's discharge, and the reply stated
that the patient, during his confinement
there, failed to Kive the remotest evidence
of a disturbance of his mental equilibrium.
"I know him to be a very dangerous
man," added Dr. Wall; "in fact, entirely
too unsafe to be without restraint. He
told me that he had received a letter from
New York commanding him to strangle
some one. That written mandate, Cos
crove said, had hypnotized him, and he
felt bound to obey it oefore he could break
the spell. This man has a peculiar and
most vicious murderous monomania,
wh-ich can only be curbed by his confine
ment where he cannot reacn another
human being weaker than himself."
MAN-HUNTING IN MADERA
Outlaws Laverone and Roberts
Evade the Posse in
Pursuit
B'.ocdhonnds Get Off the Trail After
Reaching the Broken Bock
board.
MADERA, Cal., May 9.— Outlaws
Laverone and Roberts, the Madera jail
escapes, continue to baffle the searching
posses. The only pc-son who has returned
from the hunt is District Attorney Wal
lace. When he left the officers they had
not yet succeeded in putting the blood
hounds upon the track of the outlaws,
and no trace of them had been discovered
since their broken buckboard was found.
Mr. Wallace says the officers are of the
opinion that Roberts and Laverone are in
the vicinity of Quartz Mountain, which,
like the rest of the country in the foot
hills, affords excellent hiding places for
the bandits, as there are many caves sur
rounded by underbrush, which the officers
could not approach without running great
risk in exposing themselves as targets for
the outlaws.
Every rancher in the bills has joined in
the hunt, and the posse now numbers over
100 xueo, all heavily armed.
