need any additional Chinamen. Qlacken
said be would not need any just then, but
he might about Wednesday. Returning
soon afterward to the boo fields. Qlacken
noticed tliat all the Chinamen had stopped
work and were resting. Be inquired of
one of them what was the matter, and was
informed that if he liked Indians so much
he could get all his help Indians. Glacken
Inn a contract with the boss Chinaman, by
which the latter has to pay forfeit for all
loss of time by the men. Meantime, Glacken
has taken the Indians, whom he had hired
from Merkly and Caslleman, to whom he
had lent tlieir services, thinkinc he would
not need tliem for a while. Now, these

Salmon Selling Cheap.
Owing to some trouble between the fisher
men on the Sacramento Kiver and the can
nery men, the lislicrmen shipped a large
quantity "of salmon to this city yesterday
by the Sacramento boat.' which sold on the
dock at 25 cents each. Tliey weighed from
fifteen tv forty pounds each, and hundreds
were carried away al that price. Mr. Lynde,
of Lynde & Hough, heard of the slaughter
and hurried to the dock and offered 5 cents
a pound for all that was left. r As the fisher
men paid 7. cents a fish freight, they were
glad to accept his offer. Lynde then made
arrangements to buy 2000 fish daily for his
cannery at California City.
A Demand to Be Made for Equal
The Republican County Committee is
waking up, and the indications now are
that Auditor Strother. the blatant mouth
piece of the Democratic Boss, will not be
allowed to dictate the entire control of the
At the next meeting of the Board of Elec
tion Commissioners Meyer Jacobs, Chair
man of the Kepublican . County Committee,
with Judge Dibble and M. A. Horn as
counsel, will appear before the board to de
mand a hearing in the matter of the amend
ment of Section 1112 of the Political Code,
which provides for an equal representation
of both parties on the precinct registration
and election boards. Thus far the com
mission, wliich is made up of four Democrats
to one Kepublican, has carried tilings with
a nigh hand, and instead ot proceeding to
appoint precinct boards under the amended
law, took for its authority the old section
of the Registration Act, which gives the
parly in power a representation of two to
one against the weaker side.
At the last meeting of the commission
the intention of Mr. Strother was called to
the amended law by Mr. Jacobs, and a de
mand made for the rights of the party, but
Mr. Strother pushed the matter aside with
the air and pomp of a dictator, informing
Mr, Jacobs that that question had been
definitely settled by the board and would
not he considered again.
Of course, the publican County Com
mittee had nothing to do at that time but to
retire, but not, by any means in tlie attitude
of defeat. The committee leaders are de
termined that if Strother attempts again to
deny them a hearing they will drag him into
the court by the persuasive means of a man
damus, and see if he will undertake to dic
tate to the Judge.
How the hearing may turn out cannot
even be conjectured at this time, but it is
certain that if the commission refuses to
recognize and act upon the amended section
of the Political Code the matter will be taken
into court for judicial construction.
The whole situation, so iar as the Demo
cratic party is concerned, may be summed
up in one word— desperation. At the last
election that party lost the Tax Collector's
oflice, the Recorder's ollice, the District At
torney's ollice and the Sheriff's office, and,
having previously lost the County Clerk's
office, there was nothing but the Assessor's
left in which to feed the enormous gang of
parasites that infests the party and that has
always led heretofore on municipal pap.
Every corrupt measure that can be de
vised is to be put in use, to the end that
these lost "snaps" may be regained.

A DEARTH OF COAL.
The Wellington mid Carbon Hill Mines
On account of the strike among Duns
nuiir'a miners in the Wellington mine there
is very little of this coal on the market. ... It
was recently reported that the strike had
ended, but upon investigation this was
found to be untrue. Out of about 900 men
employed in the mine only about HO are at
work, and these are only employed In the
old tunnels. Since the strike Wellington
lias advanced to Sll per ton, and unless the
miners return to work, which is not proba
ble, a still greater advance may be expected.
Now comes the information that the Paci
fic Improvement Company's coal mines at
Carbon Hill are closed, or about to close,
by virtue of an injunction served on the
company at the instigation of the Fish Com
mission, that body claiming that the ac
cumulation of debris in the Carbonado
Kiver, caused by washing therein, was kill
ing off the fish. •
, F. S. Douty, Secretary of the Pacific Im
provement Company, thinks that the new
order coming at the same time with the
Wellington trouble will seriously • incon
venience the public in general by putting
coal at a very high figure.

BY HIS OWN PISTOL.
John Morgan Sboolg nimself Instead of
Ihe Oilier Ainu.
At 2.50 o'clock yesterday morning a pistol
shot was heard in front of the Cafe Koyal
on the Fourth-street side. A number of
policemen gathered at the spot in a few
minutes, as well as several newspaper men
on their way home.
Upon reaching the spot it was found that
a man was just rising from the cutter,
while another was gazing about iv a dazed
Both were placed in custody and taken
down to the Southern Station, where the
following facts developed themselves. It
seems Mr. Frederick George, an Aus
tralian solicitor, who has recently reached
California's shores and was but a few days
ago admitted to practice in her courts, had
been iv the Cafe Royal with a party of
friends, who, upon coming out prepara
tory to going homo, were standing on the
curb engaged in conversation, when a man
of no mean appearauce, but considerably
under the Influence oi liquor, came up and
accosted the party.
None of the party knew him and paid no
further attention to linn than to turn their
backs ou bim, whereupon the stranger
jostled up against the young Australian,
who being a mau of splendid physique,
nearly six feet tall and weighing no less
than 200 pounds, and not accustomed to
such salutations in his country, gave the
stranger a shove which landed him on his
back out in the street. The moment the
stranger fell a pistol was fired. Doth men
wero taken in custody, and upon reaching
the Southern Station the stranger gave his
name as John Morgan, which was probably
not his correct name. Upou being searched
ho was found to have besides the pistol
taken from him a gold watch, a diamond
ling and diamond stud and some mouey.
A charge of carrying concealed weapons
was booked against him, and he was about
to bo locked up fer the night wheu it was
found that the pistol shot had gone through
his overcoat pocket and upon a closer
examination that it had penetrated his own
right leg. The wound had nut bled any
and be had felt no especial inconvenience
(rom it, except that he thought he had hurt
his leg in the fall. He declined to talk
about the matter further. He was taken to

was extracted by Dr. Key.
In the morning he was released on bail in

A St. Paul Girl's Misadventure After a
An interestius sight was witnessed early
one morning recently by two night-workers
while wending their weary homeward way
up Wabash street, says the St. Paul Pioneer
Press. A young couple, who had evidently
put in the night at sonic dancing-hall, had
stopped on the opposite side of the street,
and the lady was endeavoring to change
her dancing slippers for her walking shoes.
Her pedal extremities were of course some
what swollen by the night's dancing, and
her efforts to make the change were futile.
Her companion ' then came to the rescue,
but their combined efforts were unavailing.
Filially the attempt was given up. and
she concluded to replace her slippers; but,
10l when she attempted to do so she found
that her feet bad swollen to such an extent
that it was impossible to wear them. Here
was a dilemma sure enough. A hasty con
sultation was held, and her escort took off
his shoes and handed them to his fair com
panion. They were just the fit, and soon
the couple continued tlieir homeward jour
ney, the gentleman in his-stockiug feet. .
