1\ ; TO HIS FINAL BEST
Coney Island, at the beach, is rapidly
becoming one of the leading Sunday at
tractions of the city, and the increase in
patronage yesterday was marked. For
many hours hundreds of people passed
through the gates, visited concessions and
found much enjoyment In the open-air
vaudeville programme, which is presented
by clever artists. A lion, one of the most
graceful ever seen here, has been ac
quired by the management and attracted
attention all day.
Professor "Billy" Vosmer made a most
thrilling balloon ascension. He rose in
the direction of the clouds many hundred
feet and executed many daring antics on
a trapeze. A new balloon specialty is be
ing prepared for next Sunday.
On the vaudeville programme are Musa
La Var, serio-comic buck and wing
dancer: Oro and Oro, a rough-and-tumble
sketch team; Eddie Dolan, the "man
from Ireland,** and several other people
whose talent is pronounced.
The management will make extensive
Improvements during the coming week
anfl is acting on every suggestion that
wtll be conducive to the comfort and
pleasure of the public.
Murphy said, however, five other con
victs would have killed one of the num
ber who should have weakened In case
the guards had fired He said Dr. Plant,
the prison physician, was badly scared
and threw his hands in the air and ran
In and out of the barber shop aimlessly.
He intimated that five other officers were
also more or less frightened.
Murphy said that while he* was in ti.e
brush near Lake Tahoe eighteen of his
pursuers sassed not more than two feet
from his hiding place. After they had
gone he entered a house and robbed It of
$19. He said on one occasion he rode in
a buggy with a Nevada deputy sheriff
and played cards with him and another
officer without exciting their suspicions.
Murphy eald it was his intention to pro
ceed to his old home In Pennsylvania,
have his present filled teeth pulled out
and a "false se.t inserted /and remain In
that State secure from detection. He
would express no opinion concerning the
whereabouts of Miller and the other con.
Murphy said to-night that getting away
from Folsom Prison is the easiest thing
In the world. He was surprised that more
breaks for liberty were not made there.
He was asked what would have been the
result if the guards had been allowed to
open fire on the thirteen escaping, con
victs who had taken the Warden, the
captain of the guard and several of the
guards of the prison as shields.
"If the guards had been allowed to
fire," said Murphy, "it weuld have been
a very different story. There was plenty
of opportunity. There were times when
a prisoner was twenty-five feet away from
an officer and the guards could have
opened fire without hurting an officer.
Why. it would have been a hundred-to
one shot for the guards to have fired."

The sudden departure of Johnson and
the woman has furnished a basis for sen
ratlonal reports that the two were in
seme manner responsible for the taking
off of Calvin, and it is chiefly because of
tbis allegation that the officers have made
a special effort to apprehend them.
Several months ago Calvin was taken
ill and died very soon afterward.
Johnson was the physician In at
tendance, and It is said that he paid con
siderable attention to the wife during the
serious sickness of her husband.
After the death of Calvin the physician
and the widow were much in each other's
company. Their departure was entirely
unexpected and the people of Overton
were shocked because Johnson held a lu
crative and responsible position at the
mills and was a prominent figure In the.
social life of Ovcrton. He had a bright
and Interesting family, and to all appear
ances was an attentive and devoted hus

The feast was served at tables arranged

The Iroquois Club celebrated the twen

terday by giving a bull's head breakfast
at Larkspur in Redwoods Grove. It was
a great success in every way. The day
was fine and the attendance large. The
twenty-two bull heads, which were do

to the "king's taste," and were adjudged
by the epicureans present to be the very

hunters who rt turned with Capta'n Brown
on the Mariposa. made no secret on Sat
urdny that the chargt-s of assault were
made more for the purpose of holding
the aged mariner in cuttody than with
any Idea cf securing a conviction. They
have other and more serious charges to

Meanwhile they depend upon the assault

captain until they are reads*.
The arrest was made by the representa
tive of a private detective agency. As
sault on the high seas is *a felony, and as
the bail where a crime of such degree is
charged is high Captain Brown Is confined
In the City Prison.
The captain denies having at any time
maltreated the complainant, and declares
that nothing more serious than SDlte in
spired his arrest. The real complainants,
he declares, are the men who failed to
find the treasure and who are holding him
responsible for the fruits gathered from
their own folly. The captain takes his
arrest philosophically and declares that in
a few days he will be on his way to his
home. Auburn. R. I., where he will organ

them sail for the South Seas and gather
the harvest of yellow metal his former

The men that failed to find the $50,

way yesterday to begin the operation of
getting back at the ancient mariner whose
rainbow yarn was the cause of their
tribulation. Captain James Brown, late of
the treasure-hunting schooner Herman,
was arrested yesterday as he was leaving
the ticket office at the ferry depot with
two tickets for Oakland in his possession.
He was arrested on five charges of as

Fisher jumped and just as he did so
Blake fired. The first shot missed Fish
er, but Blake fired again and Fisher fell

LOS AXGELES. Sept. 13.— Henry Fish
er, aged 26 years, unmarried, agent for
the Santa Fe Railroad at Kramer, San
Bernardino County, was brought to Los
Angeles this morning suffering from a
gunshot wound through the right lung,
from which the physicians say he cannot
recover. He was shot at that desert
town at 6 o'clock Saturday night by John
Blake, postmaster at Kramer, and there
being no physician there, the wounded
man was placed aboard a special train
and taken to Barstow, where he ¦was
placed on board an overland train and
brought to Los Angeles.
Fisher's story of the shooting Is that
he and Blake had a quarrel over some
trivial matter about three weeks ago, but
he did not regard it as at all serious and
the trouble had not been renewed. Satur
day evening, while Fisher was washing
his hand?, Blake entered the Santa Fe
depot and demanded that Fisher produce
certain papers, the nature of which Fish
er did not state. He was told to wait a
moment, and while Fisher continued
washing he heard a gun snap behind him
and tnrned to find himself covered with a
revolver in the hands of Blake.

particular characters where all do so
well, but undoubtedly Master Teddy Mc-

scarcely in their teens, made the hit of
the night when they appeared as the
"Bowery boy and girl." The audience
will tmile for days over the picture they
presented*. Daphne ¦ Pollard, as Phyllis,
the lady slavey, was so precociously de
lightful that every one fell in love with
her. Jack Pollard was -wonderfully good
in the comical part cf Roberts. Alice.
Ivy and Fred Pollard added interesting
musical and terpsichorean features to
