Accident Caused by a Land-Slide on the
Best Shore Road.
I Banter Carried Over Niagara Falls.
Sequel to the Newman Murder.
Special by the California Associated Press.
MExtruis, April 6.— Reports from the
lower Mississippi indicate a rise more or
less heavy. The river is falling rapidly at
Cairo to-day, and it is expected to fall rap
idly from now on.
Intelligence from Arkansas City is to the
effect that a party of armed men went down
from the Bed Fork district and cut the
levee at Boggy Bayou at Possum Forks,
La., causing a dangerous crevasse. The
guards on patrol were removed several
days ago. The State authorities will try to
close the gap.
A party of negroes lately arrived in
Louisiana' from North Carolina, got on an
improvised raft to escape the overflow in
the Bogue Yolaya, and, being unused to
navigation, they ran against a stump and
wrecked the raft. Twelve women and
children were drowned.
THE RESCUED SAILORS.
Thrilling Story of the Suffering of the
New .York, April 6.— The crew of the
German bark Lydia Anna, whose rescue
was reported in yesterday's dispatches,
tell a thrilling story of their experiences.
For ten days starvation stared them in the
face. The only f cod available was water
soaked crackers. Bain fell incessantly
while they were on Sandy Island
and a hurricane prevailed, making
It impossible to start a fire. As
days passed some of the crew became
desperate and threatened to commit suicide.
The captain was ill with bronchial troubles,
and to increase the hardship an ice floe
blocked the passage to what remained of
the wrecked vessel. Ou the ninth day every
bit of food and the last drop of water was
gone. At noon on the tenth day the Grade
was sighted, saw their signals and rescued
them. They will be sent home by the Ger

the United Brotherhood, Amalgamated

Emms Starke. Newman's Domestic, Charged
W th Murder.
Chicago, April Emma Starke, the
domestic that placed poison in a can of
corn that caused the death of Mr. and Mrs.
Newman, was arrested last night at the
Park Theater, a low resort. She denied
that her name was Starke, or that she had
worked for the Newmans, but she was pos
itively identified by young Newman and
t • matron of the Anchorage Mission, who
had sent her to Newman's. The girl told a
number of improbable stories, and was
locked up on a charge of murder. Mr.
Newman's son has fully recovered, but the
daughter is still low, and fears are enter
tained for her recovery.

A Spanish Grandee Weds a Polish
A Tery interesting wedding, which can
not be aptly described as a marriage a la
mode, or a love match, or even a mere
mesalliance, but partakes of the nature of
all three, has lately taken place in an
obscure Polish village, says a St. Peters
burg correspondent of the Boston Herald,
the bridegroom being no less a personage
than a Spanish grandee, the Governor of the
Philippine Islands, aud the bride a charm
ing, artless Polish peasant girl. The match
was brought about in this way. A year ago the
Spanish dignitary obtained leave of absence,
and paid a visit to Paris for the sole pur
pose of seeking for a suitable life partner
in that International matrimonial mart.
The qualifications required iv the bride
were few, but important: she should
profess the Koman Catholic faith, and
should have something more valuable than
her face for her fortune. His vigilant eyes
soon fell upon a beautiful Polish maiden,
who, though a peasant, could bQast of
great worldly wealth, aud was blessed with
good looks, which were over and above the
conditions. The Spaniard cultivated the
acquaintance of this Slavonic maiden,
talked with her father, proposed, and
was accepted. Shortly before the mar
riage of a Polish prince, the owner of the
village of Sandomir, was induced to confer
by adoption upon the young lady the title
ox i rincess. After this the Governor of
tne Philippine Islands journeyed to Rus
sian Poland, to the government of Kelets,
where, a few days ago, lie was united in
wedlock to the lady of his— heart The
marriage ceremony was performed by the
Bishop of Sandomir in the rural church of
au obscure village, according to the rites of
the Roman Catholic church. The little
chapel was filled with peasants of every age,
among whom w »re many of the lonyer
playmates of the blushing bride.
THE CITY OF PARIS.
Passengers Still Relating Incidents of
Their Memonble Trip.
London-. April The passengers of the
City of Paris have not yet got through talk
ing about their experience on the water
logged steamer. The actual danger they
were in does not seem any less when con
sidered from terra firma. A score of pas
sengers say they heard nothing of any offer
on the part of the captain of the Adriatic
to carry them back to New York.
K. F. Downing, a Custom-house broker
of New York, said: "li the captain of the
Adriatic made such an offer. Captain Wat
kins never told of it, or almost every m*.
would have gone. I know a New Yort
man who would have offered $1000 to the
captain of the Adriatic to take him back.
Why, most of tho passengers would have
gone on a boat bound for San Francisco
around the Horn rather than have stayed
on ttie sinking City of Paris. The coolest

Just before the wrecked steamer reached
Queenstown, the passengers held a meeting
and formed a "Passengers of City of Paris

places as far away as the City of Mexico,

"THANKS, GO AHEAD."
An Explanation From Captain Roberts of the
New York, April 6.— Captain Roberts if
the Adriatic explains the City of Paris
affair as follows: "We were out two days
when I saw signals of distress from the
City of Paris. A boat in charge of the
chief officer came alongside saying Captain
Watkins desired to be towed into Queens
town. lie theu told me the condition
of the ship. 1 declined to do as
requested, but told him I would go
to her to save life. While they were talk
ing another steamer hove in sight. She
was bound west ami I thought she was the
City of Chester of the same line. We sent
up rockets, but she kept right on and paid
no attention to our signals. The
chief officer then repeated his re
quest. . 1 again told him I would
go to the City of Paris to save life, if neces
sary, but would not tow her into Queens
town. We then started to go to the City of
Paris when we sighted a steamship bound
east, which afterward proved to be
the Aldersgate. I signalled her and
when she responded I sent my chief
officer in a boat. He boarded the
steamer and asked her commander if
he would go to the assistance of the City of
Paris and take the passengers from her.
He consented to do this and we proceeded
in company in case of emergency. The
commander of the Aldersgate and Captain
Watkins had a consultation. The City of
Paris hoisted a signal saying, "Thanks,
go ahead." In conclusion Captain Roberts
said, had there been any danger, lie would
not have thought of leaving the City of
Paris, but would have taken her in tow,
mails or no mails."
The City of Chester arrived to-day. Her
officers denied seeing signals sent up by the
Adriatic, and stated that they did not see

SAN FRANCISCO, MONDAY MORNING; APRIL 7, IS9O-EIQHT PAGES.
The Bill Ready to Be Reported
to the House.
Carlisle Engaged in Preparing a Democratic
Senator Chandler on tbe Proposition to
Establish Reciprocity Treaties With
Special by the California, Associated Press.
Washington, April 6.— A tariff bill will
be reported to the House next week, prob
ably as early as Wednesday or Thursday.
Accompanying this Dill is a report of the
majority of the Ways and Means Com
mittee, which is now ready, and by Monday
or Tuesday the report of the Democratic
minority of the committee will be ready.
Mr. Carlisle is now engaged in drawing it
up. At one time there had been some in
tention of submitting a minority bill on the
lines of the Mills bill, which passed the
House in the last Cougress; but that inten
tion has been abandoned. A majority of
the Democrats on the committee and three
fourths of the Democrats in the House re
gard that as bad politics, and altogether
inadvisable. They hold that it is not
the function of a minority to construct a
bill, and it is bad policy fur the opposition
to create unnecessary embarrassments for
itself. This is the view which the majority
of the Democrats take. It is this view
which the minority of the House has
usually taken, and their action will be in
accordance with it. Some of the leading
Democrats regard the MeKinley bill as so
bad that they cannot believe it is intended
to stand alone. They believe that Secre
tary Blame has had a hand in preparing it,
and that high duties have been put upon
raw hides and some other things in order to
facilitate a dicker looking to free trade
with South and Central America.
SOUTH AMERICAN TRADE.
New England Senators Interested in the Pro
posed Reciprocity Treaty.
, Washington, April The proposition
to establish a reciprocity treaty with the
South American countries as an offset to
the proposed duty on hides is one to which
the New England Senators and Representa
tives are giving a great deal of attention.
"1 have not given the subject an extended
consideration," said Senator Chandler yes
terday, "and I would not care to pass judg
ment upon it without careful considera
tion. I should be inclined to say though
that we could well establish reciprocal re
lations with any of the countries of the
Western Hemisphere which would adopt
our tariff system and schedules. I
am quite inclined to believe that it
would be wise to establish these re
lations with all countries between the bor
ders of Canada and the Isthmus of Panama.
It would not be in any sense au abandon
ment of any part of our system of protec
tion and it would guarantee to us the almost
exclusive traJe of these countries. In ex
tending the boundaries of our tariff system
along so much more of coast line we would,
of course, have to undertake the added re
sponsibility of protecting ourselves from
smuggling, but I am inclined to think that
we would reap great advantage from such
The Silver Coinage sod National Election
Laws Under Consideration.
Washington, April About two-thirds
of the Republican Senators met in confer
ence last night at the residence of Senator
Chandler to discuss the silver question.
The Western Senators, known as silver
men. had. the floor at first and explained
tneir views at length, and then the repre
sentatives of other sections expressed them
selves. No marked preference for the
Windom bill as against the Jones bill (re
ported by the Senate Committee on Fi
nance) was shown. It was the final opinion
that Republican Congressmen should har
monize upon some measure of legislation
ou the silver question and press it to a pass
age at as early a date as possible.
The action of the Republican members of
the Committee on Privileges and Elections
iv requesting Chairman Hoar to prepare a
national election law is understood to have
met the approval of the conference. When
it is reported back from the Judiciary Com
mittee Senator Edmunds said be would call

Three Monthly Shoots at Harbor View
Three German shooting clubs held their
monthly medal competitions at Harbor
View shooting range yesterday and the
merry crack of rifles resounded over the
bay all day long. Though the breeze was
rather string for accurate shooting the
scores were on the whole good.
In the shoot of the San Francisco Gruetli
Shooting Section the result was as follows:
First class medal— A. Rahwyler. 300 rings.
Second class— J. Hugenin, .'195 rings.
Third class— J. Hauser, 319 rings.
The Eiritrnclit Schuetzen Club contest
resulted as follows:
Champion medal— F. A. Kuhls 408 rings.
First class— A. Wirtner,. rings. Second
class— B. Overmohle, 367 rings. Third class
— O. Nagel, 335 rings.
The first best center was made by A.
Stamer and the last best center by L. H. 11.
The California Schuetzen Club also held
its stated medal shoot, with the following
Champion clas3— A. Sticker, 446 rings.
First class— Dr. Rogers, 423 rings.
Second, class— William Glindeman, 385
Third class— A. Utehlg, 401 rings.
Fourth class— F. C. Miller, 374 rings.
The well-known veteran riflemen I'hilo
Jacoby, Captain F. A. Kuhls, William
Ehrenpfort and George Hoaf will soon
leave for Berlin, where they will take part in
the great German Bundes shooting festival.
This is the greatest shoot of the year, and
marksmen from all over the world will be
in attendance. The local experts are ex
pected to make a creditable showing.
The Eintracht Society, of which Captain
Kuhls is a member, will escort the great
marksmen to the ferry in a body, and the
California Schuetzen Club, of which Mr.
Jacoby is President, will probably do the
same for him. ■ .

Of the Hearst two-year-olds the best
lookers are i'osetnite, b. c., by Hyder All,
dam Nellie Collier; Anarchist, eh. c,
by Joe Hooker, dam Chestnut Belle, and
Snowball, eh. c, by Joe Hooker, dam Laura
Winston. These three are particularly
well developed fine colts, and in looks are
I equal to anybody's. Yosemite displays the
Hyder Ali traits strongly; his coat is
ticked with the Hyder Ali white hairs, and
the great family type, the hunch of gray
hairs at the root of the tail, is remarkably
noticeably. He is a very taking colt. An
archist is a stockier colt than Yosemite and
very powerfully developed, lv many ways
he resembles the Czar as a two-year-old.
Both these colts have worked well here,
though they will not start at this meeting,
being reserved for their bay engagements.
Anarchist has had a little cold, but is all
over it now. The pair worked a quarter
yesterday in 24%. Snowball has made no
fast moves yet, but he is a line, big, slash
ing youngster, and will no doubt be
heard from. On looks. Anarchist, Yo
semite, Snowball would be the order of
classification. Prlmero, eh. c, by Powbat
tan, dam Speed, and J. 8., b. c, by War
wick, dam Maria are two likely young
ster!;. Aliuont and Miss Gertrude (4) in tin:
same stable, are doing well and may start
at the Bay. Taking the string all through
it is a Hue looking one, aud with a little
more work the two-year-olds, especially,
will bear close attention. Unfortunately
the stable has made no engagement-! for
the Sacramento meeting, though it is well
entered tor the Bay races. After Sacra
mento the stable will ship Bast, probably
commencing at Chicago, though it is possi
ble that they may go right on to the East
ern tracks aud then return to Chicago.
Tom Hazlett had Jubilee (4) out and
gave him some steady work. The horse
looked in Cue older and went its strong as a
steam engine, nearly pulliug Hazlett out of
the saddle. If Jubilee would run as well
in a race as in work, he would add many a
bracket to his name. Jubilee is in the
Owner's handicap here. He is not entered
at the Bay.
THE ELM WOOD STABLES.
It looks and breeding count for anything
the Elmwood Stables two-year-old br. c.
Duke of Milpltas, dam Gypsy, by imp.
Hercules, aud tracing way back to the Nor
folk blood, ought to be as gilt-edged as the
best. This colt is a remarkably well-made
blood bay, with black points. He is big
and well developed. So far he lias only
done light work aud will not make his debut
on the Coast. He is in the Futurity and goes
Bast soon. The stable expects great things
from this colt. Another likely two-year-old
in this stable is Sir Walter, brown colt by.
Nathan Coombs, dam by imported Hercules.
This young gentleman lias done some good
work and starts at the Bay. Ho is not as
big as some of the other two-year-olds at
the track, but is liable to prove a useful one
later on. Kelly and Samuel's two-year-old
eh. filly Lizette by Hyder Ali, dam Kate
Fletcher, is a good-looking youngster and
has been doing good work. She will start
at the Bay. Bd McGinuis aud Welcome (5)
iv the same stable, are lookiug well.
A HANDSOME COLT.
Flambeau, the Palo Alto crack colt, has
developed into the finest three-year-old that
has ever been seen on the Pacific Coast,
the Biimeror of Norfolk and all the others
not excepted. A grander, belter muscled,
i eifect specimen of the thoroughbred it is
impossible to imagine. He has deepened
and furnished out wonderfully. He looks
the picture of health aud is as playful as a
kitten. Since he came to this track he has
gone a mile and a quarter with his shoes en
While Racine lias improved wonderfully
also, and is a beauty, taking the two to
gether. Flambeau is bis superior in every
way. The Hearst stables are indeed in luck'
to get such a colt as Flambeau, even if it is
only for his racing quality. If this sou of
Wildidle and Flirt has good luck in stand
ing the change to the Bast, there is not a
colt in the country, the great El Bio Key
not excepted, that should beat him with
weight up, any distance, from a mile to a
mile and a quarter. When the Palo Alto
horses come to the Bay District horsemen
will be given a treat by a chance to look
this great colt over.
TIIE PALO ALTO TWO-YEAR-OLDS.
The Palo Alto stable's two-year-olds are
good ones. Binfax showed - his quality
yesterday by winning hands down, and in
the description of the race Binfax was also
described. Tearless, a two-year-old eh. f.
by Wildidle, dam Teardrop, is a likely
young lady, but is not as forward as Bin
fax, who may possibly prove the best of the
regular Palo Alto lot. which includes
Scamper and Jackson. These two latter
have no engagements either here or at the
Bay. There is considerable talk, however,
about a colt belonging to the Undine stable,
in which T. li. Williams, Jr.. is Interested,
which is down here with the Palo Alto
horses. This coll is reported to be a
wonder and one that will bear keeping
in mind. It is possible that tbe Palo Alto
horses will go to the Bay District after to

Key. Dr. Hnrcoart Discourses on Trades
Unions and Capital. I
At Howard-street Methodist Episcopal
Church last evening Dr. Harcourt delivered
a lecture on the subject "The Boycott of
Confederation." The text was taken from
John viii:32, "And ye shall know the
truth and the truth shall make you free."
"Slavery," said the preacher, "has had a
large place in the history of the world and
has confronted us in three forms— spiritual,
mental and physical. Christ came to set
the captive free and .to inaugurate new
measures for the amelioration of the race."
I lii| speaking of the boycott of trades
unions, the doctor said: "Tradesmen have
a right to organize for self-protection. This
is the first law of our being, and under ex
isting circumstances it becomes a necessity.
" Hardly a day passes without bringing
Its quota of news with regard to some strike
or lock-out, either threatened or in pro
cress, and the question arises, When will
this end? This slate of affairs is brought
about by capitalists scheming to secure con
trol of great enterprises so as to give them
a practical monopoly of the particular line
of business in which they are engaged. By
this means both those who work tor them and
the public who are compelled to deal with
thorn are at the mercy of greedy monopo
"What is wanted to adjust all these
wrongs? I answer. The spirit of true
Christianity; and nowhere is so much gos
pel needed, and that of the right sort, as
where the men of millions and the men cf
muscle face each other with the question.
Who shall have the right of way? The
gospel of Jesus Christ alone will make all
men brothers and neighbors.
"Boycotting must be replaced by arbitra
tion, and with the New Testament in hand
aud the golden rule iv the heart the suc
cesses of men must be wedded together.
Money must wait on labor. New Stephen
sens, Fultons and Morses must answer the
call as well as the humbler workers un
known to fame and wealth. Duty must be
made a delight and labor must cease to be
A Little Old Man Makes an Ad
dress to the Rector.
He Calls Himself John -Bailey, the Converted
Collier Boy— He Does Not Approve
Pastor Bead's Preaching. .
A little old man, with closely-cropped
gray hair, made his way into Trinity Church
last night and created a sensation there.
He had a handkerchief knotted around bis
neck and white roses in three of the button
holes of his lime-worn vest He took a
seat near the middle of the edifice and
found the places in his prayer-book and
hymnal with a readiness that proclaimed
him to be one well acquainted with the
contents of the volume.
The rector prefaced his sermon with the
announcement that £510 had been collected
at the morning service for the expenses of
the parish. This was $100 more than had
been requested, and Mr. Reed thanked the
members for their generosity.
His sermon was one of a series which he
is preaching on the labor problem. He
quoted the appeal of the young man to the
Savior to use his influence in inducing a
brother to divide the patrimony with him
and the apt reply of the Savior. .-,.-._»
The speaker held that the troubles of the
laboring classes are caused by their im
morality, ignorance and indolence, and -by
r the covetousness of the capitalists. He did
not believe that an equal distribution of
wealth, single tax or . Nationalism would
solve the great question of labor. Christ,
the laborer's best friend, the omniscient
one, had never declared that the laud
should belong to no oue aud the product of
the laud to all.
Christ has declared that covetousness
was the root of much evil. It caused the
trust to make itself a trip hammer to crush
competition and take the labor which is
their life, from a million men. Covetous
ness it was that made men employ women
and children at $3 pet: week to take the
places of men and demoralize society.
Covetousness it was that makes men com
pel clerks to work fifteen hours per day for
$4 per week In their stores, and until
covetousness and injustice and immorality
are overthrown, poverty will live.
A VOICE FROM THE CONGREGATION.
The little old iran in his seat not far
from the pulpit apparently listened with all
his ears to the eloquent preacher. At times
he nodded approval, and at times he sol
emnly shook his head, drew his under lip
over its companion aud frowned in con
demnation of the orator's opinions.
At the close of one of the rector's most
brilliant paragraphs be arose in his pew,
and to the astonishment of the congrega
tion, shouted in a piping voice:
"Brother, I would like to say something."
The rector turned from his manuscript
with amazement written on every line of
his face. .
> "Just one word," squeaked the proprie
tor of the roses and white neck-cloth.
The rector folded his hands with an air
of resignation and waited for what was to
"This thing is all wrong," said the little

dalen was born of the spirit, but Thomas

REMOVED FROM THE CHURCH.
He rambled on for several minutes in a
voice pitched at a very high key telling how
he had been redeemed, and was telling the
rector to make a close study of the twenti
eth chapter of St. John, when the sexton
The rector made no reference to the in
terruption and calmly concluded his dis
course. The disturber was the cynosure of
all eves as he passed out of the church.
. "He ought to be given to the police," said
a member of the congregation.
"Oh, no. He's harmless," another re
plied. "He's been coming here for years."
To a representative of The Call the lit
tle man said :
"lam John Bailey, the converted collier
boy. I live nt 705 Chestnut street, and
have been born of the spirit. I've been a
clergyman several years, I'm 72 years old,
and 1 would advise you to read the twen
tieth chapter of St. John. You ought to
know all about it, but I don't think you do."
"Why did you interrupt the rector?"
"Because he isn't preaching the gospel.
He's always talking about Lazarus and
Dives, and throwing stones at Joseph."
Then the "Collier Boy" went on his way.

The Chinese Invasion via Mex
One Band of Thirteen Captured Near Tia
All Bat Two of Them Landed a Few Days
Ago From the Steamer Newbern
Special by tbe California Associated Press.
San Diego. April 6.— The first train
from Tia Juatia brought up from the line
thirteen Chinese who were caught about 3
o'clock this morning entering this country
from below the line. They were all males,
three of them being boys from 8 to 15 years
of age. On receipt of information from
Ensenada of the landing at that place of
over eighty Chinamen from the steamer
Newborn the Custom-house officers imme
diately began to lay plans to guard the line,
with a view to catching the Mongolians if
they attempted to cross. The constable who
was patrolling the river-bank near the wagon
bridge to the west of the railroad track
about 11 o'clock came across a Chinaman
sneaking along toward the Mexican line
and immediately brought him into camp.
He then went back to his station and about
two hours afterward along came the entire
band from the other side. He immediately
dropped his revolver on the crowd and took
them into custody and they are now in the
County Jail. All but two of the men
landed a few days ago from the steamer
Newbern at Ensenada and are a part of a
consignment brought from China by the
City of Peking. Two Chinamen, who acted
as guides for the party, will be prosecuted.

The North Pole.
Norwegian navigators still cling to the
idea of discovering the North Pole. Their
hopes are based upon the fact that various j
articles from the Pacific are occasionally
found stranded on the coast of Greenland,
having been carried there by some current.
A notable instance of this is the finding
there of a pair of oilskin trousers, marked
with the name of one of the crew of a vessel,
that bad been wrecked on the Pacific side
of tieliring Straits. It is argued that where
a pair of trousers can go a properly con
structed vessel ought to be able to follow,
by virtue of a supposed current between
the two oceans, via the Arctic pole. —
