The board of city trustees, at their
meeting held list week, directed that
that the proposition of the Amador X
Ij. and R. Co. to furnish 75 electric
lights at 81 per light per month be
accepted, and that a contract to that
effect be eutered into at once. The
term of the proposed contract is not
stated. ' We assume, however, that it
is to be for one year. This would
make the contract price 5900. And
this important piece of business was
transacted in the most off-hand fash
ion imaginable. The company direct
ly concerned simply sent in its figures
and the city corporation closed the
deal without further palaver. It is
to be hoped that this action is not to
be taken as a precedent for future
contracting of other needed work.
Can it be possible that the law is so
lame as to sanction such slipshod
methods. It may be that the price
named is as reasonable as could be
obtained anywhere and under any
circumstances. But that is neither
here nor there. The point is, does
this action conform to the municipal
law governing such cases? Is there
no lan covering such a transaction,
is it just and right to make a contract
without any previous publicity what
ever, and without giving opportunity
for competitive bids. There are two
lighting companies doing business in
Jackson— one gas and the other elec
tric The gas company is a purely
local affair, depending exclusively for
support upon the residents of the
city. The electric company is not
so strictly a local organization, and
draws its support from a much more
extensive territory and population.
The gas company's property is all sit
uated within the city limits, all sub
ject to municipal taxation and con
trol; only a small part of the electric
company's property is within the cor
poration limits. Why not give our
own home industry an equal chance
with the other in this matter?
We quote the following section
bearing upon the subject:
Sec. 871. Contracts for improve
ments.—ln the erection, improve
ment, and repair of all public build
ings and works, in all street and
sewer work, and in all work in or
about streams, bays, or water fronts,
or m or about embankments or other
works tor protection against overflow,
and m furnishing any supplies or
materials for the same, when the ex
penditure required for the same ex
ceeds the sum of one hundred dollars,
the same shall be done by contract,
and shall be let to the lowest re
sponsible bider, after due notice,
under such regulations as may be
prescribed by ordinance; provided,
that the Board of Trustees may reject
all bids presented and readvertise,
in their discretion.
If the republicans this year will
take opportunity by the hand, and
present a local ticket reasonably ac
ceptable to the voters, they stand a
good show to elect pretty much a
straight ticket. The citizen are
getting tried of the way matters have
been going. Where one party has
held the reigns of government for a
long period of years consecutively—
as the democrats have done in Ama
dor county— practices too often grow
up and take root which are detri
mental to public interests. We are
inclined to think that such is
the case in this county. Some of
these matters will unquestionably be
looked into or ventilated in the com
ing campaign. They have been dis
cussed in a small way, still the
people do not fully understand their
import, and how prejudicial to
good government. It is only at the
ballot box that combinations prompt
ed by self interest, as opposed to
public interest, can be smashed. The
people — unless we greatly mistake
our guess— are ju-st in the humor to
do this very thing this fall.
We publish in this issue on our
fourth page ordinance No. 21, passed
by the board of city trustees. It is
directed against several abuses, which
have prevailed here, and is worthy of
s-erious attention. It is one of the
most sensible and practical laws
which have so far eaianiated from the
city authorities. Some ot its pro
visions may seem a little hard in
general application; still the enforce
nient of the ordinance will be ot much
benefit to tho citizens generally.

The insurance business ou this coast
is sadly in need of being regulated.
The San Francisco disaster has served
to bring the fact prominently to the
front, liut even without that solai
plexus blow, insurance matters were
iv a very unsatisfactory plight. With
earthquake clauses, and similar pro
visions, to beat the policy holder in
case ot loss, and the demoralization
of one-half tbe companies doing
business on this coast, tbe outlook
is far from encouraging. We are in
clined to think that tbe companies
might protect themselves far better,
without exemption clauses in tbe
policies, by uniting to secure judicial
inquiry into eveiy fire that occurs,
and barring every occupant or owner
from the privilege of insurance, who
emerges from tbe inquiry under a
cloud of suspicion; also, tbe out
ing of au ageDt who insures property
tor more than two thirds of its actual
value. Such a course would have a fai
more salutary effect from a protective
standpoint than earthquakes and
other exemptive clauses now being
inserted in policies.

Precious Stones in Amador.
It is a matter of record that in
Amador ccunty has been found a
number of gems of excellent quality.
Herefore, however, the section that
has surrendered these precious stones
has been the eastern portion of the
county— Volcano and vicinity. Dia
monds of remarkable lustre and ot
much value were found there in early
days. Of late years, little has been
done iv this line, possibly from the
fact that the gravel rrining industry
has fallen off heavily, and hence the
chances of finding the gems have been
Recently, however, Amador as a
possible diamond field, has been

A few days ago we were shown a
stone, cut, polished and finished,
taken from the new field. In size it
was equal to a cherry stone. No one
except an expert could detect any
difference between this gem and a
diamond of the first water from the
South African fields. The lustre and
tire were seemingly all that could be
desired. We were told its market
value was about 860. C. E. Jarvis ot
Sutter Creek was the owner of the
The place where this and other
gems have been found is on tbe line
of the lone and Eastern railroad. A
prominent resident of lone made a
number of trips to the pottery clay
banks, opened up ma small way some
two miles out of lone. It was some
time before the attractive influences
that called him that way so often
became known. It is not every one
that knows a diamond in the rough
when he sees it anyway. After secur
ing several likely looking stones, a
lapidary was consulted, and one or
more of the roughs were submitted
for treatment, with the result that
sparkling gems that would not dis
grace any tiara or coronet were pro

i'he stone is hard enough to cut
glass. It is not claimed that they are
equal to (list class diamonds, but are
fully equal to what is known as the
Alaska diamonds. No systematic
effort has been made so tar to as

diamond depositaries. It is not im
probable that an industry ot con
siderable value may be developed iv

THE LEDOUX CASE.
Coutinued from page 1.
Attorney Fairall called as bis Hrsl
witness U. Ciarlinghouse of Madera.
lie said be knew Mrs Le Duiix, and
identified a newspaper cut, purport
ing to be a likeness of A. N. McVicar,
as that of a man he had seen with the
defendant at oue time.
The witness was asked if he knew
defendant in 1903, but district attor
ney Norton objected. Judge Nutter
inquired what it was intended to
prove by the witness. Fairall replied
that he expected to show that Mrs
Lie Dmix was the inmate of a bouse of
ill-fame in 1903, and that A. N. Mc-
Vicar had induced her to enter such
a place. It was ruled out.
Dr. H. N. Freiman of Suttor Creek
stated that he had treated the defend
ant for illness in July, 1905, and that
McVicar was there then. He had
given the deleudant two tablets con
taining a quarter of a grain of mor
phine each, and had instructed her
not to take them unless her pain
became unbearable, lie said sho had
introduced MoVicar to him as "Mr
McVicar." On cross-examiuaticu the
witness was asked if he had not stated
to the district attorney that the de
fendant introduced McVicar as, "Mr
McVicar, my husband." He said
that he had, but that later in think
ing over the matter he had come to
the conclusion that the defendant
used the words, "Mr McVicar," only.
Dr. E. Harbert as an expert, testifi
ed that it is sometimes very difficult
or impossible to tell by a postmortem
whether a contusion on a human
body was made slightly before or
shortly after death. Dr. Southworth,
the coroner, had stated that he located
the source of the hemorrhage in Mc-
Vicar's nose by inserting a small elec
tric light in the nostril of the deceas
ed. Dr. llurbeit stated that he had
tried several times by that method to
discover the source of nasal hemor
rhages and had failed.
Dr. Harbert stated that alcohol had
been discovered to be an antidote for
carbolic acid; that if carbolic acid
were slightly diluted by alcohol it
would not burn the mouth or mucous
membrane of the throat or stomach,
but would cause death. He said he
used carbolic acid, diluted by alcohol,
as an internal medicine nearly every
day. The witness testified that fluid
blood in a body settles in the lowest
places, and that it is governed by the
capillary attraction and gravitation.
Dr. George S. Harkness testifled
that if a man were thrown into a
trunk and his head bruised immedi
ately after death, it would be practi
cally impossible to determine by
postmortem examination whether ihe
contusion was made before or just
after death. He stated that black
and blue marks have been made by
blows upon a body as late as three
hours alter death. He stated that a
corpse would bleed if any vessel con
taining blood were opened, and that
if the body were turned upon its head
and there was a rupture of seme
blood vessel in the head a consider
able quantity of blood would flow
Dr. Harkness stated that in his
opinion a chemical test of a portion
of the liver, pancreas and stomach
wuuld not be a fair basis for an
estimate of the amount of poison in
the entire body. He said that if the
portion of the liver to be analyzed
for poison were taken soon after
death, the bulk of the poison taken
into the body would probably be
found in the liver. He said the ropy,
dark mucous matter found in Mc-
Vicar's stomach, as testifled to by
chemist Kogers, indicated that some
irritant had been taken into the
stomach. He said cyanide poison
might cause such a mucous; the
cyanide odor was not always present
after death in cyanide poisoning.
Mrs LeDoux'a mother, Mrs Head,
who hns sat faithfully and lovingly
beside her daughter overy hour ot
the loug trial, fainted Wednesday
morning while Dr. Harkness was
testifying. The defendant uttered a
cry of anguish and terror and stooped
beside the prostrated form of her
mother. Mrs Head was carried to
the air and Mrs LieDoux sobbed for a
few moments. Her attorneys were
forced to apply smelling salts before
they could get their client in such a
condition that the trial could pro
Tbe defense concluded not to place
the accused on the stand, to tbe great
disappointment of the spectators,
who crowded the court room on Wed
nesday, to hear the testimony from
her. Besides the expert witnesses,
the only witness for defendant was
Mrs Head, mother of the defendant,
and her testimony was of no great
She said that for the past tour or
five years her daughter had used
morphine to soothe and sustain a
depressed spirit. McVicar came to
her at one time and asked that she
use her influence in having Emma
come back to him and that he would
marry her and "treat Ler right."
About tbe time of this conversation
the defendant was ill and was not
expected to live. Another point was
that when Mrs Le Doux lett home on
March 10th she had in hor posssesion
some 570 or 680. The lirst attempt of
the prosecution was to break down
the testimony of the witness regard
ing the reference made by her to a
conversation which she quoted which
stated that McVicar had been di
vorced from the defendant. A type-i
written statement was shown of a con
versation had with the district attor
ney at another time. Strenuous
objections by attorney Fairall brought
a ruling from the court which direct
ed the district attorney to conflne
himself to the portion of the state

nient regarding what ehe had said
relative to McVicar.
It developed upon cross-examination
that Mrs LeDoux had always used
morphine, whether well or indispos
ed, and that tbe last time she took
tho drug was when her mother
brought it to hei at the jail shortly
after her arrest. The witness said at
the time of the visit ot the district
attorney and the taking of tho state

over impending trouble and that
since then she had naturally recalled
many things not clear to her then.

A. HISTORIC JOURNEY
CAESAR RODNEY'S GREAT HORSE-
BACK RIDE IN 1776.
Uoiv the Declaration of Independ
ence Was Saved by a Vote In tbe
Session of the Provisional Congre.ii
It happened ou that famous Fourth
«>f July, 1770, the day on which the
American colonies were declared free
ami independent states. If Caesar Rod
aey hiul not made his historic ride there
might not have been any free America
The provisional congress was in ses
sion at Philadelphia, each of the thir
teen colonies having representatives
there. It was a great congress, and a
momentous question was before the
distinguished body. The great charter
of our freedom had been written by
Jefferson, and Benjamin Harrison, fa
ther and great-grandfather of presi
dents, had presented it to congress on
Monday, July 1. What would the Con
tinental congress do?
In order that our country should be
free and independent the declaration
must be adopted. This could be done if
»uly the colonies were divided, and
there were some good men who did not
believe it best to take this step at this
time. Four of the seven delegates of
Peuuslyvania were opposed to it, and,
of the two Delaware delegates present,
Thomas McKeau was in favor of inde
pendence, but George Read was op
posed to the measure. Caesar Rodney,
the other member, was iv the southern
part of his state iv the capacity of a
brigadier general, organizing and drill-
Ing troops for the coming struggle,
Two of the opposing Pennsylvania
delegates were persuaded to absent
themselves, and thus the Keystone
State would favor the declaration, but
the vote of Caesar Rodney was neces
sary to carry the state of Delaware.
A. messenger was dispatched in hot
haste to summon him to Philadelphia,
and then for four days the "patriots
of '70" talked and maneuvered to de
lay the final vote. • Ou Thursday, July
4, congress was to vote on the mo
On the afternoon of the 3d the
messenger found Caesar Rodney in
Sussex county, more than eighty miles
from Philadelphia. General Rodney
was at that time forty-six years old,
with a tall, lean, worn figure, his face
scarred by a cancer that was finally
to cause his death. The brave patriot
did not hesitate. "Saddle the black!"
he commanded, and in ten minutes he
had mouuted his faithful steed and
was galloping as if for life to tho
Eighty miles away from congress,
which was waiting for him to declare
the independence of the colonies. The
thought caused him to drive his spurs
deep into his horse's flanks and sent
him flying along the long, dusty high
way that stretched away toward the
Quaker City. It was one of the great
rides of history. That black steed
bore tbe destinies of America, and his
rider knew It, and there was neither
halt nor delay.
The sun went down, and the stars
came out one by one in the blue vault
of heaven, and that solitary rider rush
ed on his way. All through the cool
summer night Caesar Rodney kept up
his reckless pace.
The stars faded out of the morning
sky, and the sun came up red and fiery,
the herald of a sultry day. And still
Caesar Rodney kept on his way. He
was yet many miles from Philadelphia.
His horse was jaded, and he was travel
worn and covered with dust, but the
patriot did not slacken his rein. He
must be there to vote for the Independ
ence of America. And he was there.
All that hot, sweltering July day the
delegates of the colonial congress were
talking and voting in Independence
hall. The session had begun. The pres
ident, John Hancock, was in the chair,
and the clerk, John Dickinson, was
calling the colonies one by one. Vir
ginia had voted and Massachusetts and
the great state of New York and the
little state of Rhode Island, and now
New Jersey was voting, and Caesar
Rodney had not come.
Anxious and worried, Thomas 31c-
Kean went out to the door of Inde
pendence hall. Would his friend and
compatriot be too late? His face
brightened as he heard the sound of
hurrying hoof beats coining up Chest
nut street. A foaming, panting steed
dashed into the yard. Its dusty rider
leaped to the ground. Booted and spur
red and the dust of his long ride thick
on his long flapped coat and Iron gray
hair, Caesar Rodney entered the hall of
congress leaning on his friend Mc-
He was just in time. The vote of
Delaware was being called. George
Head voted "Xay." "Aye!" called the
clear voice of Thomas McKean. It was
a tie. All eyes turned to Caesar Uod
ney. The famous rider cleared his
throat, and many a patriot heart beat
with pride as he declared in firm tone:
"The voice of my constituents and of
all sensible and honest men, I believe,
is in favor of independence, and my
own judgment concurs with them;
therefore I vote for the Declaration."
And so Caesar Rodney by his famous
ride and by his noble vote helped to
settle the question of Independence and
Insured the future celebrations of the
Fourth of July.
