Accused of Participating in
IMPANELING OF JURORS
The Town Is Rapidly Filling Up
With Witnesses and
SQUADS OF BUGGED COWBOYS

Blankets, Provisions and Cook
\\ EAVERVILLE, Cal., Aue. 17.— The
impaneling of jurors in the case of the
people of California vs. Jo Gregory, ac
cused of participating In the murder and
subsequent hanging of Alfred D. Little
field, better known as Jack Littlefield, on
September 27, 1895, near Round Valley,
in the southeastern portion of Trinity
County, was begun before Judge T. E.
Jones this morning, Hon. C. N Post, Dep
uty Attorney-General, and James W. Bart-
; ett, District Attorney for Trinity County,
acting for the prosecution, and Oregon
Sanders and Rob Fowler for the defense.
In anticipation of difficulty in obtaining
unprejudiced jurors, a venire of seventy
three talesmen was issued, of which Judee
Jones excused fifteen, and from twenty
eight talesmen six were accepted and
sworn at the time of the closing of court —
namely, H. M. Hall, P. H. Bragdon,
Thomas Treloar, P. O. Hennessey, H. T.
Harvey Jr. and J. Bebeau. The balance
are to be selected to-morrow.
A favorite question of the defense seems
to be whether the talesmen would be
shaken in their conviction by the presence
of a weepinjr woman, which from their
resolute appearance seems almost super
fluous. The picturesque figure of Oregon
Sanders, as he rose from his chair and
paced the floor in meditation, was in pleas
ing and artistic grouping with the motley
assemblage of miners, prospectors, lum
bermen and cowboys appareled in overalls
and soft shirts — such an assemblage as
one could not tind outside of a California
Early Sunday evening the witnesses and
jurors began to arrive — tall, stalwart men
of the mountains who have be«n accus
tomed to the handling of a rifle from in
fancy. No disturbance was made upon
the streets, but one instantly felt that a
suppressed feeling of great intensity ex
isted, and knots of from six to a dozen
sun-browned men were to be seen stand
ing on every corner engaged in earnest
The event of the day was the arrival of
the witnesses for the prosecution' from
Long Ridge, headed by Yes Palmer, j
mounted upon wiry, active ponies. A 1
caravan of some thirty swarthy moun- j
laineers, men skilled in the use of tbe
lariat and born in the saddle, their legs ,
encased in "shaps," and their white hats
and bucksKin shirts sprinkled with dust |
from the journey, their guns resting on ;
the pommels of the saddles and their
blankets tied behind, wound down
tbe narrow mountain trail and
out upon the highways. They were pre
pared to camp during their stay at
Weaverville, and between them they
drove pack mules laden with tents, cook
ing utensils and great haunches of veni
son. Another party of about twenty wit
nesses will arrive in the same manner
some time to-morrow.
It is expected that the trial of Gregory
will last for two weeks, after which the
cases of Haydon Buck, Lacock, Fred Rad
cliffe and Vinton will be called, each of
whom has demanded a separate trial.

Charles Forman of the committee re
ported that President Asano had been
most favorably impressed with the San
Diego harbor, and about the only thing
necessary to secure the selection was the
ability of Southern California merchants
to guarantee the steamship company re
Local millers had assured Mr. Forman
that they could readily furnish 500 tons
of flour monthly for the Japan trade, pro
vided the company could give them a
reasonable rate, so as to enable them to
compete with northern mills. .
About 1000 tons of brewing barley.could
also be sent fiom this section as well as
the 500 tons of canned meats which Mr.
Asano had assured him could find a ready
market in Japan. The most necessary
thing to the local people was the assurance
of a Japanese market ' for . their commodi
ties. Mr. Forman urged that an agent be
sent to Japan to establish trade there for
Southern California goods.
K. H. Wade, general manager of the
Southern California Railroad, was called
upon for some advice. ; He said that ' the
success of the movement for San Diego
would of coarse depend on an exchange of
commodities between Southern California

LOS ANGELES, Cal., Aug. 17.— Frank
Sherman, aged 19 years, and Harry Dick
erson, ased 20, were drowned at 10 o'clock
this morning at Asbury station, three
quarters of a mile west of Long Beach,
while bathing in the ocean.
There were two of the Sherman boys
and two of the Dickerson boys camped
near the scene of the accident. At the
time mentioned Frank Sherman and
Harry Dickerson went in for a swim.
They had been in but a short time when
the Dickerson boy heard his companion,
who bad ventured out beyond his depth,
call for help.
He hastened to bis relief, only to be
dragged down under the water, and after
a short struggle they both disappeared
out of sight. The only persons near the
scene were some young girls, who were
unable to render assistance.
The alarm was given, and in a very short
time a searching party put out in a boat,
but up to a late hour the bodies had not
been recovered. The parents of the boys
reside at Eagle Rock, near Pasadena.

STOCKTON, Cal., Aug. 17.— While the
officers were planning how to prevent the
Maxwell-Rochette fight last night a fistic
encounter took place in an ark back of
Banner Island which was as spirited as
the one that did not eventuate possibly
could have been. The prize was a greater
Incentive to exertion than base lucre, and,
besides, the contestants were not on
friendly terms by any means — in fact, they
bore each other a most unfriendly feeling.
The prize was a woman and the con
testants were rivals for her love.
The men were Frank Keeney, familiarly
known as "Curly-headed Frank," and
Jack Warring. The woman for whom the
men battered each other in order to win
tier affection is a fair damsel who at one
ime waited on the table at the Philadel
phia House. Her name is Delia Colton.
[t appears that Delia was wooed by
Keeney, who enjoyed the pleasure of her
:ompany undisputed by any one until
Warring fell a victim to her alluring

Warring recently had to fto to lone, and
he persuaded the woman to accompany
She left him at lone and returned to

THE SAN FRANCISCO CA"LL, TUESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1596.
TO CARSON CITY,
Eagerly Awaited by the
Public and Bank
DARK RUMORS REVIVED
Hints That the Young Man's
Presence Might Mean a
HOFEB'S INTEBEST IN THE CASE
Desires to Swear to the Complaint in
Order to Set Himself
CARSON. Nev., Aug. 17.— Ever since
Harry Brown left suddenly for Mexico
there has been a story circulated about
once a week that he was on his way back.
These stories have been told so often that
they have been generally discredited by
the public. Those who claim to be in a
position to know say that letters have been
received from him to the effect that he
will be back on Wednesday. Since his
departure the tongue of rumor has been
pretty busy with the bank affairs, and now
they wag livelier than ever. While the
old bank managers have been claiming
that they are scouring the earth with de
tectives, his friends say that he could have
been found at any time, and that the bank
people did not want him. It is also
claimed that Jake Klein's friends consid
ered that he had been badly done up, and
have induced Brown to return and tell
all he knows about the bank, the mint and
various transactions that he is supposed
to know a good deal about.
It is argued that no one person could
possibly have taken the $68,000 and that
Brown is coming back to admit the taking
of $3000 and say that the disappearance of
the rest of the swag he cannot account for.
Others claim that Brown will get off scott
free on the plea that he merely indulged
in overdrafts, the same as several other
parties did, and that he is no more
criminally responsible than they.
Whether any of these stories are true or
not public curiosity is keenly whetted.
There was a meeting of the bank directors
this morning in reference to the matter.
Evan Williams said that he would swear
to the complaint, but Bob Hofer, the ex
cashier, who was present, said that he had
rather swear to it himself as the public
had placed him under suspicion and he
desired to have an opportunity of proving
that he had no connection whatever with
the matter. It was finally agreed that
Hofer would make the complaint as soon
as Brown arrived and the case would go
to the next Grand Jury.
It appears that the friends and relatives
of Brown have for some time past been
urging him to return and face the music.
He is not anxious to do this, but he has of
late realized that he is a hunted man and
a fugitive from justice, and while it has
been charged that the old bank officials
did not want him bacic it is nevertheless a
fact that they placed descriptions of Brown
and photographs in the hands of Chief
Crowley, who sent duplicates to the detec
tive agencies of all the large cities, and he
assured the bank, people that he would in
due season deliver Brown to them.
It is doubtless the feeling on Brown's
part that he would eventually be arrested
that has induced him to write to his
friends that he was willing to come back
and stand trial. Since the shortage was
discovered the amount ($68,000) has been
made good by outside parties who took
the stock of Williams, Klein and Coffin
for the money they advanced, so that the
loss has actually fallen on these men.
Yesterday Coffin, who had overdrawn
about 110,000, was compelled to turn over
as security his entire interest in his suit
against the Union Mill and Mining Com
pany for professional services in the water
suit on the Carson River. The defendants
are Senator Jones, Congressman New-'
lands, John W. Mackay, Evan Williams
and others. The bank will begin suit at
once against these parties. Every person
who has overdrawn an account at the
bank has been compelled to give full
security by the new board, and not a dol
lar will escape.
SAN BERNARDINU'S OIL WELLS.
Contracts for Sinking Let and Machinery
SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., Aug. 17.—
About three months ago a company was
formed in this city for the purpose of pios
pecting for oil. It was finally decided to
sink a well in San Timoteo Canyon, about
three-fourths of a mile from Bicfcnell sta
tion, on the Southern Pacific Railroad.
There is every surface and topographical
indication that there is oil in that region.
The contract for sinking the well has
been let and the machinery has arrived at
Colton. It will be taken to the canyon
and the work commenced. The contract
ors are to put down the well 1000 feet if
necessary and the hole is to be nine inches
in diameter. An experienced geologist
asserts that there is an oil belt running
from north to south the entire length of
California and he is quite sure that this
southern extremity will in time equal the
Pennsylvania oil regions.

MONTEREY, Cal.. Aug. 17.— Giuseppi
Pisani, a fisherman of this city, yesterday
caught a 650- pound tunn y. The fish is the
largest tunny ever taken on the coast.
These fish, which are most frequently
found in the Mediterranean Sea, are now
running in this bay in large schools.
Sea bass have also commenced to run
in large quantities and from two to six
tons are shipped to San Francisco daily.
The salmon have slacked up somewhat,
though the mackerel, smelt and sardines
are still plentiful. There being so many
fish in the bay has caused the whales to

THE NOGALES TROUBLE,
Three Yaqui Prisoners Brought
in and Fully Identified as
Rumors of Further Arrests and En*
gagements Cannot Be
NOGALEB, Ariz., Aug. 17.— The three
Yaqui prisoners brought in last night by
Captain Dodge have been identified as
having taken part in the shooting here on
the 12th. Their names are: Luis Lizo,
Andrez Gonzaleze and Manuel Mesa.
Lizo's name appears on the list of the
twelve who came from Tubae the night
before the battle.
The other two were of the party which
met at Nogales. An investigation will be
held by United States Court Commis
sioner Taylor at this place when the
United States District Attorney arrives.
The report of the arrest of thirty Yaquis
by Captain Boraus has not yet been veri

circulated that Arizona militiamen and
United States customs guards went to the
Mexican side and engaged the renegades
in a fight on the moruing of the 12th is
All the militia guns were taken to that
side by the citizens and some militiamen
who went as citizens, but the United

They had orders from Collector Webb to

that the militiamen and customs guard be

places. The citizens are very indignant at
the items, as they consider the boys acted
coolly and bravely.

STOCKTON, Cal., Aug. 17.— Archibald
Leitch, ex-Supervisor, died at 10 o'clock
last night at his home in this city at the
corner of California and Flora streets.
Death resulted from a bowel complaint,
which bad existed only for a few days.
With the passing of Mr. Leitch, Stock
ton, with the interior of the State, loses
one of its most progressive and successful
men of affairs. His iife in this State was
as varied as that of the typical pioneer,
and he had not a little adventure. He
was born in Robinson County, North
Carolina, the son of a tiller of the soil.
He was 74 four years old at the time of
his death. He learned tbe blacksmith's
trade and worked at the forge a great part
of his life. In 1849 he started for Califor

C. Janaen, Who Claim* to Have Been
Duped, I* in Trouble.
LOS ANGELES, Cal.', Aug. 17.— Last
Saturday nißht Deputy United States
Marshal Oaks arrested C. Yansen of this
city. The complaint came from El Paso,
Texas, and charged him with opening
mall not addressed to him.
The complaint was issued in tbe name
of Berger, a man who gained some un
savory notoriety in this section last year.
According to the jail officials, Yan
sen is a hard - working machinist.
It is alleged, while he was at
woric last year he was approached
by Bereer, who told him a tale of woe and
asked him for assistance, averring that he
would make him superintendent of a mine
which he possessed in Mexico. Yansen
was taken in by these promises and helped
Berger to $200. It was then discovered
that the mine was a myth. For this he
was taken to Ei Paso.
When Berger left he told Yansen thst
he might open his letters. This, at least,
is what they say at the jaiL Yansnn did
open them, after which he forwarded
them to the man at Ei Paso, who it is now
supposed has had Yansen arrested purely
out of a spirit of malice. The requisition
from Texas will be here in a few days.

POLITICS IN THE
Everything Points to a
Great Victory for
HARRIS IS CONVERTED.
Democratic Deadlock in the Sixth
EQUAL SUFFRAGE IN MADERA
Colonel Henry G. Shaw Opens the Re
publican Campaign in Tuol
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Aug. 17. -The ac
tion of Will A. Harris in taking a stand
for sound money and placing himself at
the disposal of the local Republican man
agers is regarded as of the greatest politi
cal importance. Harris is a Southern
Democrat of the old school and vas never
known to waver heretofore in his devotion
to his party. He is conceded to be one of
the ablest speakers in the State and a law
yer of eminent ability and high character.
His voice will be heard during the cam
paign in many of the 'leading cities of
California. His first speech of the cam
paign will be made in Music Hall, this
city, next Saturday evening to the First
Voters' Sound-money Club.
At Republican State and Congressional
headquarters in the Westminster it was
learned this morning that encouraging
letters have been received from Santa
Barbara that the silver craze is on the
wane throughout that county, that Re
publicans are vigorously and aggressively
in line and many Democrats are announc
ing themselves for sound money and good
government. Reports from all parts of
this Congressional district commend the
open and manly stand taken by Congress
man McLachlan in the opening of the
campaign. The organization of Republi
can clubs is progressing rapidly under the
auspices of the National Republican
The Democratic Congressional deadlook
in the Sixth District continues. At an ad
journed session of the convention thia
afternoon four ballots were had without a
nomination, the vote in each instance be
ing thirty-six for Rose and the same num
ber for ration. A recess was then taken
to 8 o'clock this evening, when three more
ballots were had, with the same result.
Thia lacks one vote only of being
a full delegation, and indicates how
closely the lines are drawn. The
absent vote belongs to General
C. F. A. Last, who not only declines to at
tend the sessions of the convention, but
refuses to eive his proxy to any one
else. His vote or proxy would make a
tie impossible, since with it 73 is the whole
number. The remarkable part of to-day's
proceedings, is that while changes have
taken place equivalent to a gain of four
votes for each candidate since the sessions
at Ventura, they equalize each other, leav
ing the result as before, a tie. After the
ballots this evening and some display of
oratorical pyrotechnics from both sides,
another recess was taken until 11 a. m. to
FIRST BLOOR IN TUOLUMNE.
Opening of the Republican Campaign bt/
80N0RA, Cal., Aug. 17.— The Republi
can campaign in Tuolumne County was
opened here to-night by Colonel Henry G.
Shaw of Stockton, who spoke to a large
audience upon the monetary plank of the
Republican National platform. His
speech was very favorably received, his
manner and methods of illustration being
something unique. With his parity um
brella and shears he created a decided
sensation amoner the miners, as with them
he showed how there would be an enor
mous contraction of the volume of money
instead of an expansion in case the Demo
cratic-Populist doctrine of free coinage
The free coinage of silver at a ratio of
16 to 1, with silver bullion selling below
that ratio, meant the non-coinage of gold,
and that of course was nothing but silver
monometallism. The only practical bi
metallism to-day, he said, was where
every nation using both gold and silver as
money Kept the coinage of silver under
government control until there was a gen
eral concert of action. Such a policy was
in the interest of all the people. It kept
silver at a parity with gold, and made j
every dollar in circulation as good as gold. 1
The legalized use of gold and silver in
the currency of a country at a fixed rela
tive value is true bimetallism. With half
of our metallic money to-day in silver and
over four hundred millions of it full legal
tender in usa as a medium of exchange
there was no foundation for the charge
that the Republican party was hostile to
silver. Both the silver and paper now
used as current money in the world op
erated on prices just as much as gold did.
Colonel Shaw exploded, one after an
other, all the monetary fallacies of the
silverites and said they were the offspring
of surmises, assumptions, vagaries and
theories, while the Republican argument
for sound money was drawn from the uni
versal experience of mankind, the orderly
development of trade and commerce and
the maintenance of public and private
credit. Hu accused the Populists of in
consistency in clamoring for the control
by the Government of railroads and tele
graphs and nearly everything else having
a public nse, and at the same agitating for
private control of the mints.
The colonel said the gold miners of
California had a deep interest in settling
this great question rlehtly. Free coinage
meant a premium on gold, but this did
not mean that the miners would get any
more for their gold than they now re
ceived. With silver as a sole monetary
basis the goW miners would hold out their
gold for the true valuation of this metal,
and with Californians compelled to buy
$40,000,000 of gold every year to liquidate
interest charges upon specific contracts
and for taxation, a popular storm of in
dignation would break upon the heads of
the men who had invested their capital
and energies In the development of the
gold mines of California and then would
come their turn to be vindictively assailed
by the calamity howlers, the discontented,
the theorists and the political adventurers
in every party.
Colonel Shaw was frequently interrupted
by applause and his closing plea for
McKirii«y, protection, sound money and
prosperity was very heartily applauded.
He will talk daring the week in Angels
Camp, San Andreas and other mining
towns on the mother lode.

SANTA BARBARA NEWS,
Unique and Interesting Contract
Filed in the Recorder's
John Resigh Undertakes a Tunneling
Project Which Promises Great
Results in Water.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., Aug. 17.— A
unique and interesting contract has been
filed in the County Recorder's office, by
which John Rfisigh of this place agrees to
drive a 300-foot tunnel into the hills in
certain lands in township 4 north, range
26 west, the compensation to be a certain
share of the possible water flow developed
in driving the tunnel. The object of this
tunnel is water development, Mr. Resigh
being an old miner and the contractor on
the Barker tunnel in Cold Spring Canyon,
which has contributed so materially to
ward the water supply of the valley.
Mr. Axtell's ranch lies upon the line of
the mountain boulevard and in a gulch
upon it are fine springs situated in a plum
colored sandstone which experts declare
to be the water-bearing rock of this region
and it is expected that it will develop
large quantities of water if penetrated.
The point where operations will begin is
some thousand feet above the valley and
the finding of water in quantity at this
j elevation would be of inestimable value.
A SUGGEST IVE FIND.
Shoe* of a Misting Chinaman Picked Up
on a Wharf.
BANTA BARBARA, Cal., Ang. 17.—
Charles Haines, a truckman, this morn

shape of a pair of Chinese shoes carefully
placed near the outer edge at the extreme
end of the wharf. These shoes have been
identified as belonging to one Sam Lee, an
employed of J. A. Blood at Carpinteria.
Sam Lee was in town yesterday and cashed
a check for $10. since which time he has
not been seen by any of his countrymen.
There is yet no positive proof beyond the
mute testimony of the shoes that he is
not back In Carpinteria, but the wharf is
thronged with Chinamen watching for

Bishop Grace Opens and
Dedicates the Beautiful
The Fine Structure Packed to
the Doors, While Hundreds
TRIBUTE TO FATHER NUGENT.
To the Pastor's Efforts Is Da? the
Erection of This Handsome Place
EUREKA, Cal., Aug. 17.— The beauti
ful new Catholic church at Ferndale was
opened and dedicated to-day by Right
Rev. T. Grace D. D., Bishop of Sacra
mento. The ceremony was most solemn
and impressive. Hish mass was cele
brated at 11 o'clock, at which the pastor,
Rev. T. Nugent, was assisted by Rev. H.
P. Wyman and Rev. A. 11. Clark, Paulist
fathers from San Francisco.
The sacred edifice wts crowded to the
doors, visitors from Euieka, Rohnerville
and surrounding towns being in attend
ance. All tbe available space in the
church was filled and hundreds of people
were unable to gain admittance. The new
church is of the Gothic style of architec
ture, admirable in proportion, beautiful
in desisrn and cost many thousands of dol
lars. It stands as a monument to tbe zeal
of the pastor, Rev. Thomas Nueent, and
is a credit to the people of the parish, who
can congratulate themselves on the pos
session of a magnificent church entirely
free from debt.
The town of Ferndale, the headquarters
of the parish, is situated in the richest
portion of the Eel River Valley. Its citi
zens are hospitable and liberal and all
shades of religions belief shared with their
Catholic brethren to-day in celebrating
this event, the dedication of an edifice to
the service of God.
The sermon was delivered by Rev.
Father Wyman of San Francisco. This
gentleman needs no introduction to the
people of California. His discourse was
able, eloquent and appropriate, and held
the audience spellbound to tbe close.
The music was rendered by St. Ber
nard's choir of Eureka, under the direction
of Miss Clara Dawson, the organist, with
the assistance of some of the foremost vo
calists of this county. Following were the
singers : Sopranos— Misses Buhne and Bell
and Mrs.Callagrhan; contraltos — Mesdamcs
M. Christie, J. P. Monroe and Miss Schal
lert; tenors — Messrs. N. McMillan, Perry
and H. Deering; bassos — Messrs, J. P.
Monroe, W. Decantillon and Belcher.
Millard's beautiful mass in G was never
more artistically sune.
The magnificent new edifice could not
have been opened under circumstances
more favorable. The presence of his Lord
ship, Bishop Grace of Sacramento, the
opening of a mission by Rev. Fathers
Wyman and CJtrk of the Panlist order,
and the celestial strains pealing forth from
the orean loft, all tended to make the oc
casion imposing and impressive and a fit
ting presentation of a house of worship
The pastor of this thriving congrega
tion, Rev. Thomas Nugent, assumed man
agement of the Ferndale parish about
three years ago. He has already dem
onstrated his executive ability as a
financier by erecting and freeing from
debt the most beautiful house of worship
in this part of Humboldt County and a
church that in point of style, artistic dec
oration and general finish will compare
favorably with the most pretentious sacred
edifices of this character in Northern Cal
ifornia. Father Nugent's fame, however,
does not rest alone in his ability to build
up and pay for this magnificent temple,
dedicated to-day to God's service. He is
withal an orator of recognized ability, a
logical reasoner, a scholar whose talents
and learning have more than once made
him the champion of his people — a
patriotic American citizen who only asks
for that boon of political and religious
freedom which is the foundation-stone of
our Republic's greatness and grandeur.
