Yesterday was a very unlucky one for the
Native .sons and their canvass for funds.
Tuslied by the demands of the interior par
. lors and local pressure, the Transportation
Committee has spent several days trying to
induce the .Southern Pacific Company to
agree on a hall-rate fare to this city during
tlie celebration, and several visits have
been paid to Fourth and Townsend streets
lor that purpose.
First Vice-President Crocker was ab
sent and the company did not wish to
Hive au answer. Last Saturday another of
ficial was absent and Monday was named
as a day when a final answer would be giv
en. Then the Committee was told to wait
another twenty-four hours for the answer.
Yeslerday morning Chairman W. H.
Chamberlain and E. W. Williams, Chair
man of the Transportation Committee,
called on the officials wbo had the matter
of ii reduced rate under consideration, and

negative in reply to their request lor half
Chairman Chamberlain and bis asssociate

their faces all day.

LA KUE'S STOKY.
It Wag a Friendly Contest, and No
\V_.UI m in tbe Case.
The trial of Frank la Kue, accused of
killing Henry Mcßride in a prize-fight at
the Golden Gate Athletic Club, consumed
the whole day in Judge Shatter's court
Dr. Kogers, one of the physicians present
at the autopsy, said that Mcßride's brain
showed signs of softening, also that his
lungs were diseased and he was troubled
with Bright's disease of the kidneys. lie
.might have died without the blow, for he
was in a bad condition physically.
Dr. Estes said he believed that Mcßride's
death was directly caused by contusion of
the brain, tbe result of blows. He admitted
the poor condition that the deceased was in,
but thinks he might have lived for years
had not the blows been received.
For the defense there were several wit
nesses, all tending to prove that it was a
friendly contest, for no object whatever
beyond mutual amusement. But the only
testimony of special interest was given by
La Rue himself. He said that Mcßride and
himself were together on the night previous
to the fight, viewing some photographs of
boxers, when they conceived the funny
notion of having a boxing match betweeu
themselves. They Accordingly went down
to the Golden Gate Athletic Club and made
arrangements with the instructor. After
the match had progressed a few rounds
tbey began to realize that it was not the
funny tiling they imagined it would be, and
■a remarked to each other. Mcßride was
the iirst to speak of it, and La Kue at once
coincided and agreed to quit it Mcßride
would. They saw, too, that they were be
ing made game for the crowd.
The inclination to quit was overcome by
the spectators, however, Who urged them
to keep on, and in a few minutes more Mc-
Bride fell to the floor and died. La Kue
declared tliere was "no woman or money
mixed up in the affair at all.
Many sports and reporters who witnessed
the rent testified that neither combatant
bit a good square blow during the entire

BBOIHKB AGAIKST SISTEK.
A Disgusting Family Bow Aired in the
Judge Coffey was busy most of the time
yesterday hearing the developments of a
family feud oyer the estate of John HcAn
drews. McAndrews, who had been an ex
pressman and lived at 9 Midway street,
died in is-...', leaving an estate uf about
$5000, bequeathed by will to his witfcw and
two children, Annie and Philip. A year ,■_
so after her husband's death Mrs. McAn
drews was committed to the insane asylum,
and the will was not probated until a sliort
time ago, when Philip petitioned for letters
Tie daughter, Annl«, objected to having
the estate controlled by her brother, and in
her protest declared that be was a drunk
ard and unfit to act in any such capacity.
She also accused him uf being the cause of
her mother's insanity, by striking her on
the bead with an ax.
Philip retorted by accusing his sister of
being it woman of bad repute, also addicted
to the use of strong drink, and when it
came to taking testimony a host of wit
nesses were summoned in his behalf to
prove the unfitness of Annie to administer
upon anything of greater importance than a
glass of beer.
The attempt to prove that the young girl
had been leading a bad life and would have
become a mother soon but for her criminal
conduct was made several times, but Judge
Coffey told the counsel repeatedly that he
did not care to hear that phase of the case.
p. was enough to try it on its merits with
out dragging in a whole mass of scandal.
By the persistence of the counsel, bow
ever, several witnesses were made to testify
about Annie's reputation and condition.
At the close the Judge decided that nothing
had been proved, and that she was entitled
to the letters testamentary applied for.
Philip, it was shown, had forfeited his right
to administer, by having wailed more thau
live years alter becoming of age before
making an application.
Iv summing up the case Judge Coffey
took occasion to give Mr. Rogers, the execu
tor named in the will to act with Mrs. Mc-
Andrews, a round reprimand for not having
pursued the legal course. Upon filing the
will and petition years ago nothing further
had been done, and Mr. lingers went on
administering without the sanction of the
court or any lurther hearing of the case.

Military and Social Jottings— Popularity of
the Soldiers-A Water Famine-Notes
From the Front
Camp Waterman (Santa Cruz), Aug. 19,
1890.— Since the beginningof the brigade en
campment last Saturday, the bustle of mili
tary life iv Santa Cruz has been more pro
nounced than at any time this summer,
though large numbers of the soldier boys
have been pitching their tents here since
the season opened. The primary cause of
this lies in the greater numerical strength
of the brigade over that of a single battal
ion, and the further fact that all arms
of the service are represented in it. From
morn to midnight the streets are prom
enaded in all directions by guardsmen, in-

tent on finding old friends or capturing new
ones, and, as a rule, their search is seldom
unsuccessful. This may be ascribed to the
uniform good conduct of the men, without
which tlieir popularity would be fleeting,
indeed, notwithstanding the glamour of
their gilt buttons and military trappings.
In this connection it must be said that the
men of the brigade are particularly fortu
nate in having been preceded by such es
timable and well-behaved brother soldiers
as the members of the Sixth lufantry and
The weather lias been gradually growing
cooler since Sunday, and the hard work of
drilling is not as trying as it was feared,
from the first day's experience, it would be.
Of the 1400 men who went into camp none
have been reported sick, up to date, and
only a very few have reported at the Sur
geons' quarters for treatment of wounds,
from which the majority of the cavalry are.
suffering. A little arnica aud leave of ab
sence from mounted drill is the usual pre
scription in these cases. It may be added
that ihis complaint is not unknown to cer
tain members of the Brigade Staff, but as
the names of these sufferers are not re
corded at the ambulance information regard
ing their present state of health is unobtain
able. Rumor also has it that the disease
prevailed for many years among the staff
of the First Infantry, and that of lite these
officers prefer to do their fighting on terra
lirnia. Whether or not such is the truth
could not be ascertained up to the time of
sending this dispatch, but it is a fact that
the staff have eschewed all horseback exer
cise since coming to Camp Waterman.
On Monday morning the routine of camp
life wis changed by General Orders 15,
which are, in part, as follows :
Sec. I— Hours of service and roll-calls are es
tablished as follows, to lake effect ou the 18m

a'ely after dress parade; dinner, 6 P. m.; re
treat. 7 P.M.; tattoo, 10:30 P. M.; lap., 11 p.m.
So far these rules have been strictly ad
hered to. The setting up drill is some
thing of a novelty in camp, being usually
reserved for the company armories where
brought into use at all. General Cutting, from
knowledge obtained in the two commands
lie was formerly connected with, is aware
that this drill is generally overlooked, and
hence his peremptory orders that it shall
occupy (lie time heretofore devoted to the
company drill. Another feature which is
being looked after is the skirmish drill,
which, in the city armories, is seldom prac
ticed for want of sufficient space. The
General instructs his battalion commanders,
in the orders quoted from, to devote at least
half an hour to this each day; but they,
realizing the benefit of it, bave given up the
entire hour and a half to instruction in
this important branchof the tactics.
In the evening at 4:45 o'clork the inter-
. ■ ;. "- '^^ _ .
"eating ceremonies of dress parade and
guard-mounting take place. On Sunday
this event was attended by a large number
of citizens, but unfortunately eacn of the
regimen had Its own particular parade,
and as the four battalions went on the field
together there was a clashing of commands
and music . that was as distressing to the
visitors as a fusillade of Chinese crackers,
ob New Year's. Yesterday,: however, - this
gave way to the brigade dress parade, which
was a groat improvement. Drum-Major
Maybury, a host in himself, led the consoli
dated bauds and drum corps, which made a
splendid showing, notwithstanding ■; the
presence of a few incompetent men among
the musicians. | His maneuvering of •; the
band was commended everwhere, from the
General's tent to that of the provost guard.
From a civilian standpoint. Indeed, it is the
only attraction in the camp. Yesterday this
brigade drill was not expected and few
traveled out on the dusty roads to witness
it. To-night, however, there was a much
larger attendance than that of Sunday, and
there is uo doubt but that this will continue
during the week. While speaking _of the
bands, it is but fair, to say that Yon der
Mehdeu has matte the standard of the Sec
ond "Regiment's .so I high, that the First's,
which formerly held the place of honor, is
entirely distanced, Indeed,: the ' iticonipe
tents are now to be found principally in the
ranks of that once-favored organization.
Aside from the band, . the First Regiment
is ahead in everything. - Promptness, neat
ness and courtesy are : the conspicuous be
longings of the enlisted men, and to those
attributes can be added the soldierly quali
ties of its officers. Harmony reigns every
where—its discipline is as nearly perfect as
can be attained in the militia service, and
there is a feeling of regimental pride that
makes it first in all its undertakings. But
it has had advantages in its yearly camps
that the others have not had, and conse
quently is better prepared to sustain the
credit of the National Guard of California.
The Third and Fifth Infantry, the Second
Artillery and Hussars all aim at attaining
the high standard for which the First is
noted, and as early as to-day improvement
was noticed all around. To-night's brigade
dress parade is an instance of this. The
regiments came on to the line with far bet
ter regard to distances and time than they
did last night, and in tho manual of arms
were as perfect as could well be expected.
The social features of the camp begin im
mediately after lunch, when the first visitors
arrive and are as hospitably entertained as
tent life will permit. Open house is the
order at all the headquarters, and the most
friendly rivalry exists between them in
their efforts to entertain. At these quarters

delegations from the beau monde are to be

frequently make the picture a very enliven

musical instruments, and the Second Artil

these and the assistance of the ladies quite
an enjoyable afternoon is passed. Some, of
course, go to the beach, and others get up

the men, the ladles please with a solo or
two, the regimental bands discourse con
cert selections, and soldier and citizen make
their round of calls from one hospitable
tent to another till tattoo brings the even
ing to a close. So has it been for the past
two evenings, and so it will continue till
camp is broken. '_■■'"■
There has been but ono serious com
plaint with the brigade— the insufficiency of
the water supply. The pipes are too small
to supply such a large body of men, and
one-half the camp are dependent upon the
street-sprinklers for water for toilet pur
poses and cooking. It is too precious a
luxury to drink, and the several com

A Remote Little Settlement In the Foot.
lulls of the Sierras.
Knights Ferry Is a remote little settle
ment iv tho foothills of the great and ma
jestic Sierras. The place derives its name
from an old settler by the name of Knight,
who in 1819 built a boat on the Stanislaus,
twelve miles east of Oakdale, and then es
tablished a ferry at the place which bears
his name. When the gold fever broke out
people flocked in the direction of this place
in search of fortune and it was not long be
fore the little hamlet became a busy, wide
awake mining town. Many became very
wealthy and retired, but of late years the
attention of those who dwell in the vicini
ty has turned from the uncertain means
of obtaining wealth by digging into the
bowels of the earth to the more certain
method of acquiring it by attention to fruit
culture. The temperature being warm,
sometimes very hot, the climate is specially
adapted to the raising of the navel orange.
The writer visited a great number of orange
groves at this place and his attention was
directed to one in particular, that owned by
Carl Vogt. About twenty-two years ago
Mr. Vogt reached this place and took up a
piece of land. He has now upon his place
about 5000 orange treee of assorted variety,
200 of which are in full bearing and yield
him about £50 per tree. He says that neith
er scale bug nor other insect ever troubled
liis trees. The trees in the grove vary in
age from twenty to two years, and some of
the youngest bear fruit. Mr. Voght, whose
trees were awarded a premium at the Stock
ton fair, has received several letters from
the officers of the Board of Trade relative
to placing some of his trees on exhibition at
the World's Fair to be held in Chicago in
1893, His grove speaks volumes for the
glorious climate of that section of the State,
and is oue of which the people of Knights
Ferry are proud. C.
