The Murderer and Tralnrobber In Jail In Saeramento. Sacramento, July 39. The capture or Jack Brady, bandit, murderer and tanner's boy, near Hacramento, natur ally created quite a sensation hero, and large crowds of people were in and about Sheriff Johnson's office all alter' noon, hoping for a chanoo to see the noted criminal. But few person had their desires ' gratified, however, for after Detective Thaoker, of the Wells Fur go Company, appeared upon the scene, he put a stop to any further free exhibitions. If he bad permitted it, Brady would have spun otf yard after yard of stories about himself, for bo considerable of an egotist. Yet he tolls his tale in suoh a matter-of-fact way that a person oauuot put him np as braggart. lxxiiil police officers and the detectives of the railroad and express companies are considerably chargrilled over the fact that the trainrobber, for whom they have been hunting fur mouths, has spent several day in this city and In Stockton at various time. "How do you do, Mr. Thacker," he said to the well-know detective as that gentleman stepped into the sheriff's office this afternoon "How do you know my name?' asked Thaoker. "Oh, I waa in a saloon near tho cor nor of Third and K streets, in this city, a few weeks ago, when you oame iu. Someone remarked, 'There s Thaoker,' and I ducked out of the place." Brady say he lodged here for week, and wa at Stockton about three week. Near the latter plaoe he bought horse and cart with the iu teution cf leaving the oonntry. At the time bo had over f 300, and now regrets that ho did not board a train and rido out. He feels oonfldont no one would have noticed him. His cap ture, which was made by Deputy Sheriff MoDonald and William A. Johnston, under a bridge near Frank' lin, in this county, was an easy one. They got the drop on him while he was biding under a bridge, and he had to surrender. Yesterday ho was driven by hunger into tho little town of Free port, and the officer were notified. Detective William Ahearn, of tho rail road service, who has been on Brady' trail for several weeks, is given ninoh credit for the fact that he notified the local officials a few days ago to bo on the lookout for him. Ahearn was close upon him when ho stole a horse near Biggs. Brady had worked in that neighborhood, and knew just where to get a horse and what one to take. The story of bis wauderiugs np and down the Sacramento valley and his fight with the Shasta oounty officers is a thrilling tale. He says the officers who fired upon him near Cottonwood wounded him in the side. He did not shoot at them at all, he say. His gun was accidentally discharged by being oauirht In some brush, and they ran away. "I would have winged them," he said, "but I thought I would lot them go." With respect to tho Identification or Brady with Browning, at Uoldeu Onto Park, San Fraucisoo, and the murder of Stagg some time ago, Brady declared that that was all wrong, as he was not with Browning at the time alleged. lie did not dony acquaintanceship with the dead bandit, Browning, and made admissions a to hi whereabouts from time to time. He insisted, however, that he had nothing to do with the train-robbery. He asserted that he fell out with Browning several days before the robbery. The detectives, however, declare that they have traced Brady's footsteps, and they will have a com plete ease against him. Dahad I nt the Ocean. Fernandina, Fla., July 89. Chased by a Dosse. with the bay of blood hounds sounding nearer, and with every avenue of escape shut oft, four negro outlaws dashed into the ocean near Fort George last night and were drowned. The victims were Tudor Brown. Willie Cook, Sam Eohols and John Armstrong. They were desper ate characters who broke jail at Fer naudina Sunday night and hid in the scrub along the beaoh. Sheriff Higgin botham determined to hunt them down. The netrroea were discovered on the beach, and when called upon to Bur render refused. Then the bloodhounds were nnlashed and the deputies closed in and began firing. The negroes stood as if dazed for a moment, and then rushed into the ocean. In the faint moonlight they wore seen bobbing np and down on the waves and then disap peared. International Gaographloal Cttugre... London, July 29.

Lane Wa Boarded Marine In Cuban Water, but Wa Not Searched. by Breakwater, Del., July 20. Captain Quick, of the schooner Carrie E. Lane, upon her arrival here tonight, had tale to tell about a thrilling encounter in Cubau water with a Spanish gun' boat. Two shot were fired at the Lane by tho man-of-war, and one of the ohoouor'a men narrowly escaped be' ing killed by one of them. The vessel was made to have to and give an ao' count of herself before being allowed to proceed. The schooner wa off Cape Antonio and making good time before a stiff breeze, when, on the 14th inst., she sighted a steamer flying the Spanish nag following her. While he was making up bis mind what course to pursue, a puff of smoke curled over the stranger's port bow, and a round shot whistled unoomfortably close to the schooner' mainmast, plunging into the water on the , loequarter. Captain Quick gave the order to haul in sail and bring tho vessel to. While this waa being done, one of the crew ran out on the bowsprit As he stood there the gun on the Spanish warship boomed again, and another shot sped on its way toward the Amerloan craft, this time ooming so close to her that the sailor on the bowsprit swears he dis tinctly felt the wind caused by its rapid flight. The Lane soon came to a dead stop, and the gunboat drew np nnder her quarter. A boat was lowered and four Spanish marines, under the command of a lieu tenant in the Spanish navy, oame aboard. They were fully armed, and their leader politely lifted his hat and demandod to know from what port the Lane had sailed and whither she was bound. Captain Quick gave the re quired information and no further search wa made. The vessel was per mitted to ooutinuo on her course with out further molestation. Captain Quick say he oould not get the name of the gunboat. He add that after the first shot was fired at the Lane he caused the stars and stripe to be hoisted, but the only response the Spanish made was the second shot The gunboat did not hoist her oolors until after the first shot wa fired. William Quick, reached here tonight and wired his agent in Philadelphia and will await advice from them be fore determining whether to consider the action of the Spaniards as an out rage. Rpanl.h Captain Probably Klght. Washington, July 28. The govern ment officials here have received no in formation regarding the firing on the schooner Carrie Lane by a Spanish war vessel off Cape Antonio. The general opinion of naval officers who read the report of the affair described by Cap tain Quick is that the Spaniard did not exceed his authority in overhauling the schooner, if the latter was in the terri tory of Cuba. The Spanish govern meut is menaced by the danger of land ing filibustering expeditious on the Cu ban coast, and in exerting itself to pre vent suoh landing has a right to over haul and learn the character oi any vessel within tho three mile limit that might be expected of having on board those entertaining designs against the government or a cargo intended for the insurgents, Captain Quick's story shows he paid no attention to the man of-war for an hour or more. This, it is said, probably caused the captain of the latter to beliave the schooner was engaged ia filibustering methods, and prompted him to take decisive action in preventing her escape. Alleged Gold-Bar Thieve.. San Dieiro, Cal., July 20. A dis patch from Eusenada say that Manuel Riveroll, who has been in jail there several months on a charge of stealing a cold bar valued at 913.000, will be liberated today, on orders received from the City of Mexico.

San Francisco, Jqly 27. A number of young women struggled with other curiosity-seekers to obtain admission to the trial of Theodore Durrant tor the murder of Blanche Lamont today. The proceedings openod with the district attorney's attempt to oontrovert the defendant' application for a change of venue. After a number of affidavits ha been presented, stating that the defendant would have a fair trial in San Francisco, Judge Murphy denied the application for change of venue, giving Durrant the right to renew the motion later on. The court announced that the so-called play based upon the Emanuel church murders oould not be produced during the trial or while the action was pending in the superior court. The empaneling of jurymen commenced. Fifty of the jurors offer ed exouses, which were accepted by the court . From the other 100 jurors who had been summoned, an attempt was then made to secure twelve talesmen. Durrant, who was accompanied in the oourt by hi father and mother, main tained hi calm and unconcerned de meanor. After the reoess, Attorney Deuprey challenged the entire panel of jurors on the ground that they were not drawn, summoned and impaneled in aooordenoe with the provision of the oode of civil proceed are. He offered in evidenoe the records of the superior oourt in relation to the drawing of jur ors this year. He asked the clerk to produce these records. As Deputy Piper, who alone had the combination to the safe where the record are kept, was out of town, the case was adjourned until tomorrow morning. DECLINES TO INTERFERE. The Treasury Department Cannot Stop Bullfighting- at Atlanta. Washington, July 27. The treasury department has declined to entertain the protest by the vice-president of the Humane Society against the admission into this country of bulls and toreadors from Mexico for bullfighting exhibi tions at the Atlanta exposition. The secretary was asked that the bulls be excluded on the ground that they were immoral instruments, and the torea dors, that their admission would vio late the contract labor law. Assistant Secretary Hamlin, in reply, cites sec tion 10 of the act of August .28,. 1894, prohbiting the importation of "any obscene book, (pamphlet, drawing, printing, instruments, or any other articles of an immoral nature," etc The letter then proceeds: I have to inform you that the de partment is unable to peroieve that the importation of bulls for the pur pose indicated come within the letter or spirit of the prohibition contained in the provision of the law quoted, and therfore declines to issue the desired instructions. If, as stated, the exhibition of bull fighting is prohibited by the laws of Georgia, it is presumed that the au thorities of that state would prevent it, but the subject does not appear to come within the jurisdiction of the depart ment" A Sensation In the llllnol. Route, Springfield, UL, July 27. Repre sentative Kiloourse, of Chicago, today caused a sensation by introducing a track and pool-selling bill in the house. The bill is for an act taxing owners of raoing enolosuros and permitting the regulation pool-selling and wagering on horse races run therein. As soon as the title was read a score of member were on their feet Miller of Chioago got the floor and moved that it be the sense of the house that the bill does not oome within the soope of Governor Altgeld's proclamation, and, that, therefore, it lies upon the table. Speaking on this question Miller made a acathing speech denouncing the bill as an outrageous piece of subterfuge, chicanery and fraud. Half a dozen members rose to points of order, but the speaker decided in each case that the points were not well taken. The bill provides that raoe track officers shall pay into the treasury of the ooun ty in whioh the track is located 8 per cent of the gross receipts. It prohibits the selling of pools on outside races and provide that races shall be held between May and September, and not to exoeed sixty days ou each track. A motion to table the bill was lost 51 to 55. MoCarthy introduced a bill taxing baseball games on Sunday. Will Lose by the Change. New York, July 27. A special from Cnraoo, Venezuela, -says: Advices from England indicate that Lord Sal isbury is stubbornly opposed to submit ting the whole British-Venezuelan question to arbitration. The general opinion here is that it will be more difficult to settle the question with him at the head of - the government than with Rosebery. Indiana Ordered to Return. Washington, July, 27. Commissioner Browning ha forwarded a dispatch to Agent Tetor, at the Fort Hall, Idaho, agency, instructing him to order the Indians to return to their reservations qnietly and peacefully before the mili tary detachment reaches there.

GUARDED BY INDIANS Bannocks Control the Passes Into Jackson's Hole. CONFLICTING REPORTS ARE SENT Governor Richard, of Wyoming, In . tend That the Indian Shall B Made to Ke.pect the Law. Cheyenne, July 85. The first ad vices of authentic nature from the seat of the Indian troubles in the Jackson Hole region reached Governor Rich ards today in the shape of telegrams sent by oourier from Marysville, Wyo.. to Market Lke, Idaho, from Adjutant- General Btilser, of the governor's staff, who was sent into the reigon to inves tigate the troubles between the Indians and the whites. One message sent Sunday from Marysville is as follows "Scouts who have oome in from the mountains report the Indiana in force at the junction of Granite creek and Fall river. All passes into Jackson's Hole available to horses are guarded by Indians. Captain Smith, who has just oome in, was wounded in the breast by Indians. Other prospeotors were driven irom the mountains. Pickets are guarding the various moun tain passes. Horses are equipped ready lor a march and everybody is armed, A second message sent yesterday by Stilser from the Teton pass, near the Idaho-Wyoming line, says: - "We have arrived here on our return trip. Settlers in the basin are uneasy. It is reported there that many Indians irom i ort Hall are leaving to join those in the mountains. Indian from other reservation are reported joining them. .Letters and couriers have been sent out by Jackson Hole settler ask ing for aid, with those who have re sponded, they will go on to the moun tains to meet the Indians tomorrow. The settlers have given up hopes of sav ing their crops, and are prepared to take all their women and children out of the region. " Governor Richards states ' that no movement of state troops into the Jackson Hole oonntry will be ordered until further information is received. He sent word to General Stilser, who is expected to reach Market Lane to night, to report as fully as possible on the situation, particularly as to the success of the Indian police in induc ing the Bannocks, the only known offenders among the Indians, to return to their reservation. In conversation today Governor Richards said he believed the Indian polioe would be able to arrest all the Indians now off their reservations, and if they experienced any difficulty the regulars would be ordered out to assist them. "This Indian trouble must be settled quickly," said the governor, "and un less the Washington authorities take decisive action I will order out the state troops to arrest all roving Indi ans. I am determined the Indians shall be made to respect the laws of the state a well as their white neigh bora . "The authorities at Washington are careless in regard to oorrespondenoe on the subject My predecessor, Governor Osborne, wrote a letter to the interior department, relating to the Indians killing game last summer. The letter was never answered, and neither was one I wrote last month. " THE COLON STRIKE. The Panama Brakemen Have Joned the Striker. New York, July 26. A World spe cial Irom Colon says: Three Panama railway brakemen in this oity have joined the strikers. The track-layers and spike-drivers have also struck. The strikers have issued a manifesto in whioh they promise to maintain a determined but pacifio atti tude until their demands are met Prefect Guzman says Mr. Fraser, a British subject, was released uncondi tionally, and that he was arrested for aiding and abetting the strike. Fraser is advised by Dr. Maralez, the district lawyer, to bring aotion for $50,000 for raise imprisonment Some of the West Indian contingent at the Panama railway shops say that what led to the strike was the prevail ing practice at the shops of discharging men who asked for an increase ot pay whioh wa exactly one-fifth of what others got for the same work. " 1 Railroad Company Want Relief. Washington, July 26. Officials of the Panama railway at New York have forwarded to the state department a letter concerning the labor trouble on the isthmus, and stating that the rail road is obstructed, and calling on the government for relief. At noon Secre tary Herbert had not ordered a war ship either to Panama or Colon to pro- teot the Panma railroad property. He would say nothing as to his intentions and from the fact that Secretary Adee was again in consultation with him, it is thought some force will be dispatched to the scene. The difficulty probably arises from lack of right to maintain a free com munication on the place. In view of the peculiar nature ot the restriction of the operation of the Panama railroad, the instructions to the naval com mander, who ia sent to the isthmus, must be guardedly framed. It is said that the United States has the right to maintain a free communication on the railroad in the event that Colombia fails to oarry out her obligation to keep it open, and if there is any forcible ob struction to traffic, our naval forces will undoubtedly remove it But fur ther than doing this and Incidentally protecting the property of the railroad from destruction or damage, the sailors cannot go. They have no power to oompel the strikers to operate the toad. CRAZY MAN'S STORY. A Santa Cms Walter Think. He Com mltted Kmannel Church Murder Santa Cruz, July 26. In the oounty jail of Santa Cruz is oonfined WUliam F. Barrett, who saya he murdered Blanche Lamont and Minnie Williams in Emanuel church last April. He gave himself up to the chief of polioe as a dangerous criminal last night inn morning he wa discharged as harmless lunatic. Then be went to the sheriff, to whom he confessed hi guilt as the perpetrator of the Emanuel church atrocities. To the district at torney he told a. story which at first seemed plausible, but when Barrett went into the details of the crime, the inconsistencies ot his statement con vinced his auditors of his perfect in nooence and oomplete insanity. Bar rett, who was formerly a waiter in San Francisco restaurant, says that he saw Durrant and the two girls on street car, and, admiring Mis Lamont and Miss Williams, he boarded the car in the hope of making their acquaint ance. The trio alighted at Emanuel church, Barrett following. Durrant and Miss Lamont entered the church, followed still by Barrett, while Miss Williams waited outside. Barrett said he hid behind a pew. Detecting an odor of e leaping gas, Durrant went to the belfry to stop the leak. Barrett says he siezed and attempted to assault Miss Lamont To stifle her scream he choked her and she suddenly dropped dead. To silence Miss Williams, Bar rett says he stabbed her with a knife from the restaurant Meantime Dur rant had been overcome by eras, and was so dazed that he did not see Bar rett carrying the bodies to the belfry. rsarreti says ne did not wish to gee Durrant hanged for his crim. and that he was sure he would eventually be found out Barrett reseubles Durrant in appearance. He has worked here as a waiter, but is periodically dissi pa ted. He peisisted in his statement. despite a severe cross-examination. He will be examined for insanity. AGAINST RAILROADS. The Grand Jury In Mew York May In diet Them. New York, July 25. The World this morning says the grand jury has begun an investigation that may result in the indictment of the New York Central & Hudson River Company, and the New York, New Haven & Hartford for manslaughter, under section 183 of the penal code. They are accused by Assistant District Attorneys Battle and McManus having by their negligence caused the death of eighteen persons in this oonntry since January 1. A cor poration can be indicted just as an in dividual, according to the penal oode. U lound guilty the corporation is pun ishable by a fine of not more than $5,- 000. The grand jury may go further and indiot the board of directors of each of the companies, or it may not go so far, and content itself with a mere presentment . If the grand jury indicts the di rectors, some wealthy men will be ar rested. The grand jury is now oon- siderng the cases of German Weist Brodt, of Greenmburg, who was killed at One Hundred and Twenty-eighth street and .Fourth avenue Thursday, May 23, by a wild locomotive; Col- ville Staford, a boy killed at Hunt's Point, July 9; Oscar Eriokson, killed at Bay Chester, July 12, and John Mo Cormack, killed at the Willis-avenue depot of the New Haven road, July 10. Subpenas have been issued for the appearanoe of the ofiers of both roads before the grand jury either today or tomorrow. WAS BURNED ALIVE. A Story of Cruelty on the M. Stambuloff. Fart of London, July 23. A special to the Times from Paris gives an interview published by the Figaro with a brother of Naoum Tuiektohieff, who was ar rested for complicity in the murder of Stambuloff. He said his brother, Na uoin, was a olose friend of Major Pan itza, who had been executed by order ot Stambuloff. But the association was purely one of friendship, and not of politics. When the Panitza lot was discovered, all who had been connect ed with Panitza were arrested. The interview oontinues: Among them was my youngest brother, Deutschs, aged 17, whom Stambuloff thought he oould force to reveal Naoum's supposed connection with the conspiracy. Deutschs was subjected to atrocious tortures for six months, Stambuloff emloying his en genuity and multiplying the most hor rible tortures, until the executioners in his presence tore the nails from the hands and feet of my brother, and com mitted acts yet more barbarous. The little fellow refused to accuse Naoum, and, finally, exasperated, he spat in Stambuloff 's face, crying, "Tyrant, I soorn you. " It was his death warrant Stambuloff bathed him in kerosene and burned him alive in October, 1892." Tufektchieff concludes that, never theless, neither Naoum nor himself was oonneoted with the murder of M. Stambuloff, whioh they deprecated as likely to cause a reaction in his favor, while they hoped that their brother would be avenged by the condemnation of Stambuloff. K.eta Laughed At. City of Mexioo, July 84. The news papers here assert that General Ezeta, formerly president ot Salvador, ia mak ing himself the laughing Btook of Americans by his bombastic interviews published in San Francisoo and wired all over the United States. Ridionle is thrown on his statement that he will invade Salvador, where his un popularity is gaio to eontmue. FOR THE FARMERS Useful Information Concern tag Farm Work. KEROSENE A REMEDY FOR LICE July a Good Time to Plow For the Fall ; Wheat. Care of Young Chicken About the Farm. A gtudy of the state reports on wheat shows that where the ground was well prepared and the plant made a vigorous start last fall there are good yields of wheat even this year. Our reports show that in the same township the yields range from nothing up to thirty ousneia ot wheat per acre. Farmers are wondering why this vast ranee of yield in the same neighborhood, where the kind of land and amount of rain fall are about the same. A olose study of the Azures shows that the failure has come where the ground was not in good condition at time of seeding, and where the seeding was so late that the plants were feeble when winter set in. There was a shortage in the supply of moisture, and the farmer who was wise enough to break his ground early and to roll or harrow it down promptly so as to keep ail the soil moisture, had enonch to give his wheat a prompt and vigorous 8 tart Such wheat wintered well and had the vigor to resist largely the at tack oi JUesnaa fly and chinch . bug,' both of which seem to have done great damage to the feebler wheat ' The time to plow for fall wheat is July, as soon as the wheat, oats or bar ley can be threshed. Usually there ia more moisture in the ground now than a month later, and the ground will break better and it rolled and harrowed at once will retain the moisture and absorb enough more from the subsoil to enable the wheat seed to germinate promptly and give a stand of viarorons plants. A few days delay in fining and firming the wheat land may cause the difference between the pavinir and losing crop. Breeders' Gazette. Kerosene for Lice. Here is the way our contributor. H. B. Geer, uses kerosene to kill lice or to keep them from the little chicks: First, before setting a hen, we clean out the nest box, and sprinkle the bot toms and aides of it inside with kero sene oil. Then we put iu fresh straw and the eggs, and so set the hen. But we put no kerosene on the Btraw about the eggs, and none on the hen. When the chickens are first hatched we take the coop and sprinkle it with kerosene just as we did the nest box. Then we put some dry dust in the bot tom of it We take the hen and rub her shanks with a soft rag saturated with the kerosene oiL We also rub her feathers under the neck-hackle. about the roots of the tail, and just a little bit lightly under1 the wings, with the rag ailed with the odor of the oil. but not heavily saturated or dripping. We put kerosene and no lard or oil of any kind directly on the chickens. In faot we have never greased or oiled the heads of a dozen young chiokens in all the days of our life.
