New York, July 141h.— Washington
special to the Times says : Nothing that has
been discovered since the shooting of the
President, nothirg in the conduct of Guitteau
st the time er prior to this attempt on the
President's life, has furnished the slightest
evidence that a single human being bad any
previous knowledge cf the purpose of Guit
teau, nor has anything whatever been re
vealed that would justify a cuspicion that the
shot aimed at the President's life was the re
sult of a conspiracy.
Kulnkauu's Voyage Around the World
Object or i in- Trip.
New York, July 14th. — The Tiuta edi
torially Hays : It its au open secret that Kali
kana, King of the Hawaiian Islands, ia on a
voyage around the world for the purpose oi
selling his Kingdom. We have a right to re
gard with some uneasiness the trading expe
dition of King KaUkaua. * Virtually the
United States has a mortgage upon the Sand
wich Island?. ' That we have a monopoly of
the trade of the islands, both as regards im
ports and exports, is well known. The Gov
ernment v independent of all other nations,
it is true, and it is true that the Government
is of a nominal nature ; but it is
also undeniable that the worthy gentleman
who is King of the Hawaiian Islands,
by virtue of his descent from the head chief
who seized the Government once upon a time,
i- merely a figurehead, and that he is less of
a ruler than constitutional Kings usually are.
The fiercest annexationists in the Islands are
naturally American planters and traders.
They fear to have their property interests trans
ferred to the dominion of a European power.
They long for a time when they will be not
obliged, as now, to submit to the payment of
an import duty on their own products im
ported into their own country. They argue
that nearly everything that the Hawaiian
Islands export gi on to the United States, and
neatly everything which is imported into the
L-liindj come from the same Republic, If an
nexation ever arrives, it must tike the Islands
to the United States, and that thi- f>tep
wonld be deLcmncsd by foreign residents who
are not American ii also true ; but in any
event, although cur Government cannot af
ford to promote any policy vl annexation, the
other Government* of the world should be
notified that r.ay attempt 0:1 the!.- part to tc
quire the Sandwich Island*, by purchase or
otherwise, would be regarded by the United
States as an unfriendly act. If we are to fos
ter and maintain the great cammerce between
tho Pacific coast and Asia, that commerce
will need protection, which can best be given
it from a naval and military 'station on the
Hawaiian Island*. We have already been
offered a station of this character on the
Iti'-.ind-, but the policy of our Government
has been adverse to any such barteritg of
reciprocal commercial treaties for political
advantages us this proposition contemplated.
Perhaps if King Kalakaua really wants to
cede his kingdom to the United States, or
place it under American protection, the
shortest way to reach thia object would be to
oiler to sell out to some European power.

Returned to Jail.
Vallfjo, July "Buck" Fleming, a
hard case, formerly of Vallejo. was on Tues
day released from jail at Fairrield, where he
was carving a term for shamefully beating a
negro. He went to Suisnn and entered a saloon
of a man who had testified against him. - He
had a drink and upon Betting hi- glass upon
the counter seized a heavy beer-keg mallet and
struck the barkeeper on the head, knocking
him to the floor. He then locked the door,
and ! returning t j his victim proceeded to
beat him with the mallet, and with one blow,
given when the barkeeper , raised | his arm to
defend himself, nearly severed one of the
man's fingers. A woman who had witnessed
part of the affray gave the alarm, the door
was broken in, : and Fleming ran into the
street. A constable drew a pistol and called
upon : him to halt, but he advanced, daring
the constable to shoot. Some one grabbed
him from behind, knocked 1 im down, and he
was filially arrested and lodged in jail.
Young Han Killed in Arlronn.
Yuma, July 14th.— Don G. Macleodi a
younp man, for the past three years engiged
with his brother iv mining at Silver District,
was shot and instantly killed yesterday at the
district by a German named Paul Billeck. It
appears thit about t\v, > hours and a ha'.t te
fore thj (bootiag Madeod entered Billeck's
siloon and slapped him in the face, the latter
pays without any warning or provocation.
Isil!eck then calltd Macleodsome hard names
and demanded an explanation for hU con
duct, to which Macleod replied: "You
know what it is for." Billeck then left
tbe saloon to avoid trouble, and did not re
turn until nearly 2 o'clock in the after
nooa. As soon as he came back his
friends warned him that Maoleod had
threatened to kill him at sight. Almost im
mediately after Macleod rode up, and
Billeck grabbing up a double-barreled
shotgun ordered him cot tc come any nearer
if he valued his life. Macleod dismounted
and left his horse, and drawing a revolver
advanced on Billeck. When within twelve
pices Billeck discharged one barrel, the con
tents of which were largo buckshot taking
effect in Mcleod's neck and face, killing him
instantly. A Coroner's inquest was held

MINING MENTION.
The celebrated Mulatos go.d mice of
Saknarijia district, State of Sonora, Mex
ico, has been bonded for $2,000,0C0 by
New York capitalists. The bonder 3 have
a specimen of ere from the mine ths eiz-3 of
a man's head, that literally hangs together
by stringers of gold. Is cimo from the
300-foot level, where they have a tunnel on
the vein 7150 feet and a crosscut of 800 feet,
all in solid ore that will work $15 per ton.
There are thirty stamps now running on
this ore, and thirty more will be started
shortly. This is the largest gold mine in
the world. It is the property < George
Hearst, of California, offered 51, 000, 000 in
cash for last rammer, which was refused
by its owners.— [Arizona Star.
Capt. John Tnrner his shown us a piece
of rock picked up in front of Amburg's
Hotel, at Brentwood, and which was
brought from Marsh creek in a load of
gravel, that contains gold which is distinct
ly seen by the naked eye. No doubt this
rock came from Mount Diablo. The color
of gold can be found almost anywhere in
Marsh Canyon. The >Snaniards formerly
prospected the creek, but never found pay
dirt. It is evident these numerous speci
mens of decomposed quartz have been
washed down the creek, and equally cer
tain that they came from Diablo. It is
possible that valuable mines may yet be
discovered and profitably worked. Copper
and quicksilver are known to exist. — [An
tioch Ledger.
Professor .Tames Orton says silver is
usually found with lead ore and native
copper. Slates and sandstones intersected
by igneouß rocks, as trap and porphyry,
are good localities. Pure silver is often
found in and near iron ores, and the dark
brown zinc blende. The New Mexico
silver ores are porus at the surface, and
colored more or less red and green. Any
rock suspected of containing silver should
be powdered and dissolved in acid. Pour
off the liquid and add to it a solution of
salt. If a white powder falls to the bot
tom which, upon exposure, turns black,
there is silver in it. Silver mines increase
in value as in depth, whereas gold di
minishes as we descend.

SUMMARY OF THE DIRECTORS' EVIDENCE
Searching Inquiry > Into a Certain Con
tract.
[SPECIAL BT Tr.LKt.KU'II TO TIIH RKCORD-ISIOS.I
San Qcestin Statk Prison, July 14th.—
The sixth sitting of the State Prison Investi
gation Committee did not open this morning
until 11 o'clock, waiting the arrival of two of
the Commissioners from San Kifael. Pros
ent — Commissioners Mill.*, Gibbs and Watt.
Directors Shell, Everson and Neff, Warden
Ames and J. J. Owen, were in attendance
The Commission being called to order, the
minutes of the preceding meeting were read.
ABSENT WITNESSES.
Mr. Mills handed the Secretary a letter
from A. D. Whitney, in which the writer
stated that being no logger a Director of the
prison, he did not think his evidence would
be of much value to the Commission.
Mr. Milk, the Chairman, stated that it
would be determined hereafter whether Mr.
Whitney's attendance before the Commis
sion was necessary or not.
It being stated that Sheriff Moany had
just been married, his absence was considered
excusable. .
JDDOE .1. MM. BHAFTEB
Was called and sworn, in regard to the
value cf the land purchased by the State
Prison Directors : Do not place much confi
dence on the assessment values they are
generally one-third or one-half the actual
value of the property ; near Sancelito there
are extensive brick lands ; ib not know at
what they a-e valued at ; never heard of any
sales of them ; I think $300 an acre was an
exorbitant price to pay for the land pur
chased by the Prison Directors ; I haveland3
at .¥SO an acre, but they ate not suitable for
brickmaking purposes ; do Lot think that
8300 would have bean awarded had the mat
ter been referred for confirmation to higher
authorities ; do not know any of the prison
officials ; have seen Judge Ames, but have
never been introduced to him ; sold beef and
other things to the former administration, but
nothing to the present one ; have had conver
satior-s with my son, P. K. Shafter, about
the wood he sold to the piisorj.
To Mr. Watt— The condition imposed of
slaughtering beef within the prison limits
prevents any competing for the prison sup
ply ; it is advantageous to those in the neigh
borhood ; if persons could slaughter the beef
at their own place there would be a greater
number of bidden, and would probably re
sult in a greater benefit to the State ; condi
tions being imposed as to where the beef shall
be slaughtered means beef at a higher price ;
the bidder could giva the bsef cheaper be
cause the hide, ht ad and oifil would be kept
by him, and which he could sell ; the3e are
now the perquisites of the prison.
To Mr. Mills— Have sold cattle to different
prison contractors ; knew them to be con
tractors ; tho cattle I sold them were gener
ally not so good m would be required by
wholesale butchers in the city ; they were
often lean ; the contractor?, I believe, wool
fatten them up before delivering them to the
prison; many of them were what we call
stags ; have sold many of them i-! the city
for canned rttat; they are not Bat-ehM
beef ; cannot say thit the stags were deliv
ered at the prison, but think to, «is I hr.v >
received weights of them purpjrtbg to ome
from tho prison ; was generally paid from
■§30 to 536 a head ; some of them will weigh
800 pounds : the difference in pries between
stag 3' beef and first-class beef is in tha pro
portion of three to five ; state beef is worth
about three-fifths the price cf the best t eef.
To Judge Ames — Some of the stap;s had
been worked ; when they .ire wcrked they
make better beef than if they had not
been worked ; have been relliuj to other*
beside the prison contractors ; have s.:ld as
□uch as $14,000 woi£h of steers ia a year.
To Mr. Milk— The wood delivered by my
son to the prison was what he might have ou
hanu, mosily pice : might be called fair aver
age wocd ; my son has repeated to me the
conversations he had about the wood
the pris.ia authorities ; have sold wood from
81 a cord for poor wood to .?5 a cord for the
best; thirik the freight down to here was
S2 50 a cord ; know from my sou's testimony
that ha li&s beea tryiDg to get a settlement of
three cars of wood, but have always under
stood that the officers refused to acknowledge
knowing anything about it; learned that lie
had settled for half the quantity ; learned from
Mr. Warden that there had been some talk
on the part of Mr. Ellis, of the prison, that
iv these wood contracts there was nothing in
them for him ; Mr. Warden told me that Mr.
Ellis said this«, and I reported the statement
to the Governor.
Mr. Mills — The Commission would like to
know, Mr. Shafter, whether, in your opinioD,
the sum of $100 a month paid to the Prison
Directors for their expenses ia a fixed salary
or not ?
Director Shell — Do you ask the witness,
Mr. Mills, to fctate whether a law duly i> is-ud
and sanctioned by the Governor is constitu
tional or not? It seems to me a witness on
the stand before this Coiuinission has nothing
to do with the constitutionality of existing
laws. That is a matter for the Supreme
Court to decide.
Mr. Mills — Oae of the charges placed be
fore this Commission to investigate was in
regard to the sum received by the State
Prison Directors for expenses and mileage.
We are eimply endeavoring to elicit an in
telligent opinion whether these moneys are
paid in accordance with the provision of the
Constitution. Now, Judge Shafter, will you
give us your opinion ?
Witness — In |my opinion it is an assump
tion of the Legislature and a controvention
of the Constitution.
DAVID TORTER
Testified that he bad owned the land which
had been purchased by the Directors ten
years a£O ; so.d the land to the State adj nn
ing this at 5220 per acre ; the lands had im
proved in value since that time ; clay lands
for making brick were nearly exhausted in
that vicii.ity ; excavations made for clay de
troyed the landscape and impaired the value
ef other lands owned by witness ; got all the
money himself ; paid no commission to any
Directors, officer or ageat of the Directors
or officers of the prison.
A recess was then taken,
AKTERNOOX SESSION — OUT OF ORDER WIT
NESSES.
On reassembling in the afternoon Judge
Ames introduced two witnesses out of the
regular order, in contradiction of matters tes
tified to by the prosecution. The first of these
witnesses was Clerk Ellis, who testified that
he had known Judge Ames since he had been
elected Clerk, an 1 had never kiiown him to
be under the influence of liquor.

Adam Simmons testified that he had driven
the prison omnibus since April, ISSO, every
day ;'. was driving ''it in. January; Judge
Am'?, when returning from San Francisco,
always rode on the seat with witness ; had
never Been Auiea under the inrluuceof '.".|uor ;
hadn't sse him under the intlieace of liquor
from the let to the 10:h of January, 161 or
at any other time: had never seen Judge
Ames take a drink of liquor.
REGULAR EXAMINATION 1 ClSllinX
The regular examination on behali of the
Cooitniuiunere was then resumed.
Director Chapman wan recalled. A list of
articles said to have been manufactured in
the prison for the Director* wag consulted,
and upon the suggestion of one cf the Com
missioners evidence was taken of the Di
rectors separately. A brief nummary of the
testimony on this head is as follows : Each
of the Directors has now testified Mom the
Commission concerning the receipt of pres
ents ; each of them received some article of
furniture, but each haa proven successfully
that such articles were paid for. Director
Schell received from Clerk Kllis a ;.iesent of
an aquarium ; was angry upon iUi receipt,
and insisted on paying for it. Director Ever
son had received a small box of candy for
his children at tho haeds of Mrs. Ames ;
had caused a cabinet to be constructed for
himself in the prison, and had pud $20 for
the same.
A CONTRACT IMiIIRED I.NTi'
It has been known for two or three days
that a close examination would be made of a
contract let to Prescott, Scott & Co. for the
manufacture of an engine and boilers to be
used in the jute work, ami the examination
of Mr. Chapman, which has been 10 fre
quently interrupted, was re?umed. As loon
as this point was reached Director Chapman
requested the Commissioneis to place Irving
M. Scott on the stand in his stead.
A hurried consultation between the Com
missioners ensued, 'it the cose of which tho
Chairman announced that the examination
cf Mr. Chapman would be proceeded with.
It toon became apparent that Director Chap
man could not testify to the real ftcU of the
ea»e for want of knowledge,
Directors Neil. Schell, Kvfrsou and War
den Ames were in turn closely examined con
cerning tho transaction. It appeared from
the joint evidence < f tha o that an advertise
ment bad been published in the San Fran
cisco papers under date of Apiil f>:b, calling
for bids for the constiuotiou of an engine of
250 horse-power, iretnUicg that tho bids
should te opened on April 1 Ith, eight days
after the appearance of the advertisement,
the competing bidden to address their bids
to the clerk of the prison at Sun Qoeotin.
The Commissioners called on the clerk or
the prison for the originals of those bid*.
The bids and specifications of two foundries
in San Francisco were found. The bid and »
portion of tha specification of a third foundry
were also presented. The last page of the
specification was u>i»ir^, and could not be
found. The bid of Preecott, Scott & Co.
could not be found.
Warden Ames testified that Mr. Scott
asked for the return cf Ma bid, which woul.l
account for its aL.-<ecc\
The Chairman inquired of the prison clerk
if the bids had beeu opened in the presence
of the bidder?, and was amwered in the
affirmative.
THE RSOOSD UOOK.
Question — la there a record of the receipt
of those bi-'s, and the bid* ami specification
themselves, spread upon the minutes of the
Board of Director !
Answered in tiic affirmative.
The Chairman called for the record hook of
the B^ard of Directors.
The clerk proceeded to the rale to obtain
the book, v.'hen thj Directors and cletk
farmed a group in ouc corner of the room .
around the book.
The Chairman repeated his trqn 'it. for the
bonk, wlit -i oca of tiio Directors aiid the
clerk of the prison would read the record.
The Chairman requested that the book
should be handed to him, saving that ho
would read the record himself.
The book was passed to the Commission
ers, who examined it.
Alter a brief conversation the Chairman
informed the Commission and those interested
in the injury that not one word of reference
was made in the minutes to the fact of any
bids being received or opened, or a transcript
of any bid or any specification in the min
utes of the meeting held April lith, upon
which day the Directors declared that such
bids and specifications hud been opened and
examined.
IRVING M. SCOTT SWORN.
Having exhausted all tin means of informa
tion at the hand* of the Directors, the Com
missioners caused Mr. Scott to be swore, and
put him under an examination. Witness
stated that his first bid for the cors'.ruction of
t!ic engine was $8,000. Subsequently he hud
added to hit bid a preposition to build four
boilers required by the Director?, and to put
the machinery in place at San Quentin.
Eventually the contract was closed with
Pretext, Scott ft Co., by the Di
rector?, for the construction of an
engine, boilers and their equipment s. All
were to be placed ia running order at San
Qu-.'ntin for the sum of $17,000. Subsequent
to the close of this contract, by correspondence
between himself and Warden Ames and Di
rectors Everson and Ncff, some changes were
made in the specifications for the machinery,
and the contract price was increased to 820,
--700. At a later period Warden Ames noti
fied him that the specifications for the main
shaft had been made for a lighter engine and
additional expense would be necessary in pro
viding a shaft suitable for the heavier ma
chinery. The additional amount between the
shaft required and that contracted for was
81,400, thus raising the entire bid to 822,100
which was the contract price now existing.
An extended inquiry was here instituted M
to why specifications for this machinery had
not been permitted, and proposals to do the
work had not been advertised for.
A SHABP ALTERCATION
Between Commissioner Watt and one of the
Directors here occurred, arising out of an
answer of the latter that the Directors did
not go to the trouble of advertising because
they possessed the authority to make a con
tract without such an advertisement.
Commissioner Watt — Is thU tho best
reason you can give !
• Director Neff— lt is.
Shortly previous to thi3 transaction Com
missioner Gibbs had received leave of absence
from the Commission, and had returned to
San Francisco.
The two remaining Commissioners at this
point retired to an adjoining room, and clot
ing the door remained in consultation for a
considerable time. Upon returning the Chair
man directed the Secretary to obtain from all
the bidders who had responded to the adver
tisement of April complete copies of the bids
and specifications Bent iv by them. The ex
amination under this head then came to nn>
abrupt ; termination. Tl>o : Commissioners
made no further reference to it, but it is gen
erally, though not officially, understood th&fr
the whole case will be) reojened in the more-*
ing, and j a most determined effort will }>»
made to ascertain the underlying facts. : .
