Peter Dolma, a laun-Jryman who up
to ten days ago lived at Angels Camp,
died suddenly at his lodgings at 411 Pa
cific street, some time yesterday after
noon. The man's death was discovered
about 6 o'clock by an employe of the
house, who reported it to the Coroner.
In Dolma's room were found two small
bottles, one of which was filled with
strychnine, while the other was empty.
Its contents, from tho appearance of a
glass tumbler close by, had been uti
lized to destroy" the man's life. The
body was taken to the Morgue, .where
an inquest will be held.
Citizen, San Andreas, January 6th.
The news comes from the grading
camps on the line of • the extension of
the Sierra Railway f rom Jamestown to
Angels Camp that tho recent storms
have made the ground too soft for
scraping, and, finding they could mako
no satisfactory progress in the uncer
tain weather, the contractors have laid
off their crews until a dry spell is as
sured. The roadbed has been graded
from Jamestown to Table Mountain,
but work on the cut through the up
heaval is not completed. Graders have
moved on north of Table Mountain
crossing and were working- near the
old settlement known as Jeffersonville
when work was stopped, owing to the
wetness of tho country. ■-■< -

J. • C Wilson and j Martin Layman
were arrested at an early hour Monday
morning on Twenty-fourth street by
Policeman Thompson, after a desper
ate struggle, and were booked on -a
charge of burglary. An additional
charge of carrying a concealed weapon
was registered against Wilson. Thomp
son saw the two men standing in the
doorway of Mossford's hardware-store,
3825 Twenty-fourth street, and asked
them what they were doing there at
such an unseemly hour. They told
him to mind his own business, and
Thompson proceeded to do so by plac
ing the handcuffs on Wilson's wrists.
The above article appeared in last
Tuesday's San Francisco .Call. The

several shots at the animal, wounding
it, but it managed to escape.
Frank Peek Jr.of Mokelumne Hill, a
lad about eighteen years of age, lately
turned his attention to the study of
electrical science, and, after procuring
the necessary books, pursued his stud
ies alone and unaided during spare
time. He soon acquired such an un
derestanding of tho work that he con
ceived the idea, a few weeks ago, of
building a small dynamo. With a
soldering iron, files and such crude
tools as may be found around a dwel
ling-house, he built a dynamo sure
enough. It is a small affair that one
could easily put in his overcoat pocket,
but it works like a charm.
The armature, including pulley and
bearings, is about seven inches in
length, and the field magnets, including
the pole pieces, are one and five-eighths
inches in diameter and five inches in
length; the field winding contains about
two pounds of wire and! the whole is
two and one-half inches in diameter;
the commutator is one-quarter of an
inch in length and has twelve segments;
the brushes are one inch wide and one
and one-half inches long. This is run
by a little four-inch waterwheel pro
pelled by a stream of water from a
three-quarter-inch rubber hose. T"A
homo-made battery is also used in con
nection with the motor. With the
power thus generated he propelled kis

Independent. Sonora,' January 6th.
There was a hot time in the old town
last Sunday night, when the year was
ushered out and the new one welcomed
with all varieties of noise. The ring
ing of bells, the explosion of dynamite
and the unmusical fishhorns were, as'
usual, a part of the programme, but
there was an addition to the celebra
tion in the shape- of the firing of the
too handy „ revolver, which latter
amusement would have gladly been
dispensed with by our citizens. Bul
lets sped- so lively during the night that
a majority of the signs on both sides
of Washington street were decorated
with from one to six bullet-holes and
many a\y irings were likewise perforated.
The proper place for these wild and
wooly revelers was in the lockup, and
it is unfortunate that such wholesale
disregard of peace and yuletude should
go unpunished. Noise is legitimate at
the coming of the new year, but bul
lets are dangerous to life and no im
improvement to property.
New Era, Carters, January sth.
E. Si Isenberg, a Sonora merchant,
was mysteriously shot on New Year
eve in that city while walking down
Washington street. The bullet entered
just above the heart, passed near the
aorta and penetrated the lung, and, al
though the wound is a serious one, it
may not result fatally. Who fired the
shot is not known and may never be,
as there was considerable promiscuous
shooting on that night, and from all
accounts there should have been nu
merous arrests. We are told that
many participated in that careless and
dangerous "amusement." The unfor
tunate man was picked up by two
young men who were passing by and
taken to the home of Otto Kanig,
where he is under careful attention.
Union Democrat. Sonora, January 6th.
In making a professional call last
week Dr. Bromley had occasion to
travel the Parrot's Ferry road, and
passing a particularly wild and lonely
point his attention was arrested by two
wild animals engaged in a life and death
struggle. At the same time his horses
stopped and trembled with fright.
The fighting animals were probably
seventy-five yards distant from the
doctor, who soon discovered that a
deer was struggling to free itself from
tho vicious grip of a large wildcat.
The doctor endeavored to urge for
ward his horses, but they, too, were
witnesses to the encounter and refused
to move. Finally the deer fell to the
ground, and the wildcat, discovering
the observing party, sought safety in
the brush. Tying his team, the doc
tor approached the scene of conflict,
and there upon the ground lay the dead
deer with a crimson stream flowing
from a deep throat wound inflicted by
the claws and teeth of the wildcat.
Not forgetful of the methods pursued
in his days of sportsmanship, the doc
tor hurriedly and properly hung the
venison to a convenient tree and pro
ceeded on his journey. He informed a
young fellow of the sight he had wit
nessed, described the locality and the
tree to which the venison was hanging.
The following day the doctor was pre
sented with a nice, hunk of deer meat;
-We are conscious that many people un
acquainted with Dr. Bromley will
doubt tho above, and we want to vouch
for his varacity and sobriety.

VERY HIGHEST ANTIQUITY
Creditor and Debtor, Spend
- and Miser.
"COBNUTS" IRONICm EULOGY Oil DEBT
Says Spend and Regale: Save a Dol
lar and Ton Lay It up for
Debt is of the very highest antiquity.
The first debt in the history of man is
the debt of nature, and the first in
stinct is to put off the payment of it to
the last moment. Many persons, it
will be observed, following "the na
tural procedure, would die be
fore they would pay their debts.
Society is composed of two classes,
debtors and creditors. The creditor
class has been erroneously supposed
the more enviable. Never was there
a greater misconception; and the hold
it yet maintains upon opinion is a re
markable example of the obstinacy of
error, notwithstanding the plainest
lessons of experience. The debtor has
the sympathies of mankind. He
is seldom spoken of but with expressions
of tenderness and compassion— "the
poor debtor!" and "the unfortunate
debtor!" On the other hand, harsh
and hard-harted are the epithets al
lotted to the creditor spoken of? No,
the creditor never becomes the object
of pity, unless he passes into the debtor
class. A creditor may be ruined by
the poor debtor, but it is not until he
becomes unable to pay his own debts,
that he begins to be compassionated.
A debtor is a man of mark. Many
eyes are fixed upon him; many have
interest in his well-being; his move
ments are of concern; he cannot dis
appear unheeded ; his name is in many
mouths: " his name is upon many
books; he is a man of note— of promis
sory note; he fills the speculation of
many minds; men conjecture about
him, wonder and conjecture whether
he will pay. He is a man of conse
quence, for many are running after
him. His door is thronged with duns.
He is inquired after every hour of the
day. Judges hear of him and know
him. -Every meal he swallow?, every
coat he puts upon his back, every dol
lar ho borrows, appears before the
country in some formal document.
Compare his notoriety with the ob
scure lot of the creditor, of the man
who has nothing but claims on the
world; a landlord, or fundbolder, or
some such disagreeable hard character.
The man who pays his way is un
known in his neighborhood. You ask
the milkman at his door, and he can
not tell you his name. You ask the
butcher where Mr. Payall lives, and he
will tell you there is no such person in
the neighborhood. People that have his
money fast in their pockets have no
thought of his person or appellation.
His house is only known: No. 71 is
good pay, No. 71 is ready money. It
is an anonymous house; its owner pays
his way to obscurity. No one knows
anything about him or heeds his move
ments. If a carriage be seen at his
door, the neighborhood is not full of
concern lest he be going to run away.
If a package be moved from his home,
a score of boys are not employed to
watch whether it be carried to the
pawnbroker. Mr. Payall fills no place
in the public mind; no one has any
hopes or fears about him.
The creditor always figures in the
fancy as a sour, single man. with griz
zled hair, a scowling countenance and
a peremptory airj who always lives in
a dark apartment, with musty deeds
about him and an iron safe, as impen
etrable as his heart, grabbing together
what he does ' not enjoy. The debtor,
on the other hand, is always pictured
with a wife and six fair-haired daugh
ters, bound together in affection and
misery, full of sensibility, and suffering
without a fault. The creditor, it is
never doubted, thrives without a merit.
He has no wife and children to pity.
No one ever thinks it desirable that he
should have the means of living. He
is a brute for insisting that be must
receive, in order to pay. It is not in
the imagination of man to conceive
that his creditor has demands upon
him which must be satisfied, and that
he must do to others as others must do
to him. A creditor is a personification
of exaction. He is supposed to be al
ways taking in, and never giving out.
People idly fancy that the possession
of riches is desirable. What blindness!
Spend and regale. Save a dollar and
you lay it up for a thief. The prudent
men are the men who live beyond their
means. Happen what may, they are
safe. They have taken time by the
forelock. They have anticipated for
tune. The wealthy fool with gold in
store, has only denied himself so much
enjoyment, which another will sieze at
his expense. Look at those people in
a panic. See who are the fools then.
You may say as one of them goes by
in an agony of apprehension, "There is
a stupid fellow who fancied himself rich
because he had fifty thousand dollars
in the bank." The history of the last
thirty years has taught the moral,
1 'spend and regale. ' ' Whatever is laid
up beyond the present hour is put in
jeopardy. There is no certainty but
in instant enjoyment. Look at the
school boys sharing a plum cake. The
knowing ones eat, as for a face; but a
stupid fellow saves his portion; just
nibbles a bit and keeps the rest for
another time. Most provident block
head! The others, when they gob*
bled up their shares, sot upon him,
plunder him and thresh him for crying
Before the terms "depreciation^ "
"suspension," etc., were heard, there
might have been some reason in the
practico of laying up; but now it de
notes the darkest blindness. The pru
dent men of tho present, time are the
men in debt. In any case the debtor
is safe. He has put hi* enjoyments
behind him; they are safe; no turns of
fortune can disturb them. Tho sub
stance he has eaten up is irrecoverable.
The future cannot trouble his past.
Ho has nothing to apprehend. Ho has
anticipated more than fortune would
ever have granted him. He has
tricked fortune; and his creditors—
bah!" who feels for creditors? What
are creditors? Landlords; a pitiless and
unpitable tribe; all griping extortion
ers! What would become of the world
of debtors, if it did not steal a march
upon this rapacious class? — Gardner

Our Meats Will Win.
American beef no longer Tneets with
disfavor in the British market. After
years of experience with it the people
are more friendly toward it than ever.
Manj shops now display signs calling
attention to the fact that they handle
"prime American beef," whereas, a
few years ago, such an announcement
would have seriously injured their
trade. American beef has been tried
and found satisfactory by the greatest
and most critical meat-consuming na
tion of Europe. It is a safe prediction
that sooner or later our meats will win
a similar victory in other European
countries. Merit and cheapness are a
hard combination to keep down.
Those countries which now hold out
against our good and cheap meats are
placing themselves at a serious disad
vantage industriously, as compared
with their more liberal competitors.
Dear food means dear labor, either in
price or in efficiency, among civilized
nations, and this means costly produc
tion, which makes competition impos
sible in these days of cheap products.
It is only a question of time when Ger
many, which is making vigorous at
tempts to become the foremost indus
trial nation of Europe, will be forced
to realized these truths, and to admit
American meats in order to maintain
her industrial position.

Minnesota's Fines Failing.
According to the best estimates
available, there are now 7,000,000,000
feet of white pine still standing within
the borders of the State of Minnesota.
To one who -is unaquainted with the
magnitude of the lumber interests in
the State this would seem to Indicate
that lumbering will continue to be one
of the State's great industries for some
years to come; but when it is stated
further than this pine is melting away
at the the rate of 1,500,000,000 feet
every year, it requires but a minute's
computation to demonstrate that this
industry is rapidly drawing to a close,
and that in another five years, if the
present rate of consumption continues,
an end will have been reached to the
lumber business of the State. Tho
mills of Minneapolis will cut almost
120,000,000 feet more lumber this year
than in any that has preceded it, and
preparations are making for an even
larger output for next season. This
winter more than 15,000 men will be
employed in the pine woods, and more
logs will be banked, if conditions are
favorable, than ever before. The
wages paid these men will aggregate
about $150,000 per month,' and ~ they
will be steadily employed until the

His Queer Catch.
One of the queerest experiences in
catching trout that any man ever had
was that at Moosohead lake recently
by a sportsman named Williams. He
was standing on the apron of tho dam
at Wilson's, fishing in the quick water
below, and had met with fair success.
Near the shore, on his right hand, in a
little eddy, he noticed a barrel lying on
its side in several feet of water. He
found that it was an old molasses bar
rel and was lying so that he could
see the bunghole. *■ -.
'. Of course, the barrel was full of
water, and tho man had no idea ' there
was a fish inside of it, but just for cu
riousity he dropped his hook through
the hole, and no sooner had it landed
there than the wator was boiling, and
the fisherman knew that ho had a
trout on the other end. He played
him until the fish was tired, and when
be came to land him ho could not get
him through the hole. He secured a
saw and sawed a piece out oft the top of
the barrel, near the hole. The fish
came out. It weighod three pounds
and was one of the handsomest square
tails caught in that section this year.
One of the guides said that the trout
must have gone into the barrel when
quite small and bad lived on bugs and

Big Ships to Be.
Designs for the "greatest battleships

have been agreed upon by the Naval
Construction, after several months of

— will equal in forniidability the finest
battleships yet laid down by any for

improvements will surpass in fighting
force any ships now afloat.
The salient features of the design
contemplate a displacement of 14,000
tons, as compared with the Oregon's
11,000. The speed is to be "at least
nineteen knots, " with a coal capacity
of 2000 tons.
The total oost.of each of these three'

"the most exciting case I over had hap

stop to devour it.

still came on, I kept on repeating the
