MADERA, Jan. 15.— W. F. P.aird, who
was convicted in Fresno in 1593 on a
charge of forgery and committed to the
State's Prison at Folsoni in 1895 to

last Wednesday by the prison directors,

In spite of the fact that Kaird has
served a term in the pt:iit< ntiary. he

he has a great many sympathisers in
Madera Is amply evldenci •'. by the fact
that the Balrd residem • t - ■-<!:»>" was be

which is being extended t" Baird is not

possessed of a natural Inclination to in

of people who believe he has amply

him. Kvt-r sine- BalnL's conviction
there have been many in Ifadera who
believe that he was more sinned against
than sinning.
A peculiar feature of thp rrime Im

Indictments were found against him.
He was convicted on two chJirires. and

BOSTON, Jan. 15.— There was the big
gest kind of a sensation in the most ex
clusive society circles of Gloucester and
Salem to-day when Albert S. Cofßn, a
very prominent and wealthy young: blood,
was arrested on charges which shocked
the two cities. He is accused of main
taining a nuisance at his summer home
at Wheelers Point, a fashionable sum
mer resort near Gloucester.
For some time there have been well
defined rumors regarding the perform
ances held there, and a Salem newspaper
demanded that Coffin be prosecuted, but
nobody thought that this brilliant young
society leader would actually be arrest
ed. Acting upon the Information forced
upon him. however. District Atttorney
White brought the evidence to the Grand
Jury, and as a result c.'tnn was to-day
arrested on a capias. He will be ar
raigned on Monday. Many prominent
club men and swells arc trembling for
fear they will have to stand exposure
also, and 'several have hastily left the
city.

HAS NAMES OF
MANY LYNCHERS
Douglas County's Grand
Jury Will Return
Indictments.
Threats of the Mob Leaders
Believed to Have Fallen
on Deaf Ears.
It Is Certain That Relatives of Über
Will Not Assist in th©
Prosecution.
Special Dlsratoh to The Call.
CARSON, Jan. 15.— Before the close
of another week it will be known
whether the members of the mob that
lynched Murderer iber are to be
brought to trial for their participation
in the brutal tragedy. The feeling
throughout the Carson valley is that,
despite the whispered warnings of pos
sible trouble for the jurors, they will
attempt to bring each of the lynchers
to justice, and they undoubtedly have
the names of most of the party.
It requires twelve votes out of the
seventeen of the jury to indict the
lynchers cf Über. There is every lndi
catton that the grand jurors are not in
sympathy with the lynchers, and are
making a full investigation of the case.
There is .no doubt that every possible
pressure is being brought to bear on
the jury to prevent an indictment. If
the lynch. -is can get six men to vote
against the indictment they are safe.
Tin re is only one man on the jury who
is regarded as a sympathizer with the
lynch<
Ev< rything is being closely watched
by the people of Genoa, ami as lung as
the jury Bends for important witness
es ami keeps investigating it will be
regarded as evidence that It means
business. It has now the name of an
other wurnan who helped make the
masks, and she will be called to tell
for whom she made them. Already the
jury knows the balnea of nearly ev
ery participant in the lynching.
The argument the friends crt the
lynchers are now making is that the
trial of s<- many people l"<>r a criminal
offense will be a great source of ex
pense to the county and bankrupt It.
This talk la having considerable weight
with a certain class of people.
There has been considerable talk ol
a suit against the county of Douglas
by the relative! of TJber, but it is n«*w
quite certain there wijl be nothing of
the sort. When Über was lynched his
v.>s in the East wrote to Alf.
Charts, h:s attorney, for full particu
lars. The attorney busied himself in
the case a good deal, and, &a Über's
unrle was quite wealthy, it was sup
i that momy would be spent lav
ishly to bring the offenders to justice
in criminal suits and civil suits for
damages. As soon as the relatives as-
Ined that civil suits would enst
money they concluded that they
in no hurry to bring them. Here
are pome extracts from the letter r»»
eelved from Otter's sister by his attor
ney, mention of which was made in
The Call to-day:
"The Lord has's'oved me from all
feeling against them. There ■• is no
thought in my •'heart of that kind. The
Lord has filled Jmy soul with love and
good will to everybody, and I can pray
for these fellows" who murdered my
brother. Please read Matt. 5: 44, Ro
mans. 1. 19. 20, 21. I will admit that I
do not know very much. See Ist Co
rinthian?. 1: 27."
In another letter the attorney Is ad
vised to read the tracts sent him by
I hers slater, and look for his reward
in heaven for the legal services already
done for Vber.

NEW YORK, Jar.. lE.— Tbfl Journal of

cular Issued to-day Hartwlg & Bennett
pay: "Never before has the dried fruit
situation at this ■iBSWI of the year had
as bright nn outlook for the coming trade
ns it has at the present time. The de

from our representatives In California
(and we have that State pretty well
covered) there is very little left, if any
thing. In the fruit line out there. This is
an unusual state of affairs in that sec
tion of tbe country, as the ranchers, as
a rule. In previous years, have held back
their product for higher prices, and they
would not sell when they had an oppor
tunity, hut -would wait until about now,
when they would be induced to consign
it to Eastern markets to have it given
away regardless of values and to the
detriment of jobbers here who were car
rying stock they had given up their good
money for. This created the wrong kind
of competition that they have had to
meet, as this class of shipments art- sold
to any one regardless of quantity, and at
prices that were less than market value.
Hut this cannot be continued now, and
the Jobbers need not have any fear from
that source, for the Simple reason, ns
stated above, that the Western market
is pretty well cleaned up, and besides,
ever since December 1 the Pacific •
has had s large pilgrimage of buyers
from Eastern cities looking for snaps,
but one and all found that prices are and
have been ruling here ;it lower figures
than on the Pacific Coast. This state of
affairs still continues, and it will be
taken advantage of."

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 13.— The
tw.-nty mile paced race between
Edouard Taylore. the French middle

night, was spoiled by an unfortunate
accident to Taylore. The accident oc
curred on the sixth mile, Taylore at
that time having gained a lead of a lap.
which, at Saensc-r Hal!, is one-tenth of
a mile. On the next lap the tandem
team took him at a terrific clip around

outside of the track, and the machine
and rider brought up against a post,
the win-el being smashed completely,
and Taylore rebounding and falling c-n
the track. He mana.K- ij to get out of
the road just as Starbuck and his pac

otherwise more men might have been
hurt. Taylor., was not seriously injur

of place, and his left knee was wrench

While the rare lasted Taylore im
pressed the 8600 spectators with his
ability. many comparing him with
Jimmy Michael. Starbuck, too, rode
in splendid form, as his time of 10:28 1-2
for five miles shows.
Taylor.- pot the lead at the start and
for the first mile it was a regular pro
ceseton. Then the foreigner began to
draw away. At the end ,f the>-seeond
mile Taylore was almost a lap to the
good, and when the mishap occurred
he was over ;t lap ahead. After that
Starbuck reeled off mile .-ifter mile at
a steady clip, merely covering the
twenty miles necessary to secure first
money.
The one mile international pursuit
race was won by Lamberjack and Gou

ant but a bad master. 11
Yes, that is true, but how r^ —^ —^
much fire have you got to
make your servant of? -^ -*- -*- " * ■
Mighty little is the truth, is it not? All the vim has
left you, and there is not much else to care for. You
can get that vim back. You can get that fire back,
and " Hudyan " will do it for you. You, with the
knowledge that you have that you are puny — that you
are a weakling and not a man, yes, YOU — go on from
day to day hoping that some miracle will save you. Do
not waste another moment dreaming that way.
You have got to help yourself or you will never be
saved. "Hudyan" will save you. "Hunyan" will
bring back the health and the strength that you once
had. Would it not be common sense to give it the
chance? Do you — yes, YOU — know that it has
saved thousands of men from utter depletion of their
manliness ? There is truth in this. Ask what it has **
done. Come up to the institute if you can. No
cent's worth of charge for information or advice.
Are you bothered with scaly spots, with swelling In the
throat or with Falling hair? That means blood taint. Do
not neglect it. Taken in ttone blood taint is easy to cure. »
The "00-day blood cure" works wonders. Will you ask what
it has done for others? No cost in the world to you.
