ANOTHER FRESNO MURDER.
A Dispute Over the Possession of a Horse
Ends in Bloodshed.
Fresno (Cal.), December 15th—The ill-fated
Billy Martin m.ne, at Temperance Flat, Fresno
county, has just had a chapter of murder added
to its already bloody history. Heury C. Sulli
van was arraigned before Justice Hoge yester
day, at the iastance of J. M. Dorrick. to show
cause why he should not be bound over to keep
The case grows out of a long-standing dispute
regarding the ownership ol" the Billy Martin
mine. About two years ago Corrick obtained a
judgment in the Superior Court declaring him
to be half-owner in the property, and when he
visited the mine alter the judgment was rendered
he got iuto a dispute with Sullivan, iv the
course of which Corrick shot and wounded Sul
livan. Sullivan returned the fire and wounded
one of Dorrick's men.
All of the parties were acquitted of the charges
made against them at that time, but Corrick
never went near the mine after that, and it is
alleged he had to remain away because he was
iv mortal fear of Sullivan.
TAt the hearing in the Justice's Court yester
day Corrick testified that iv tho early part of
August, I»K7, after the Court had decided he was
entitled to a half interest iv the property, he
went to the mine with a wagon and a team of
horses and two or three employes, for the pur
pose of working it. lie metsu'llivau in the vi
cinity and told him that he was going to work
ou the claim, as the Dourt had decided that he
was the owner of a half interest. Corrick went
to work Monday morning, when Sullivan came
along with a pick handle in his hand and stood
on a pile of dirt about ten feet above the hole
in which Corrick was working, and a dispute
arose between them. Corrick seized a double
barreled shotgun and Sullivan ran toward his
house aud got a Winchester repeating ritle.
One barrel ot Corrick's shotgun was accideut
ally discharged in the air, but the second barrel
was better aimed, wounding Sullivan, who got
behind an oak tree and fired two shots, one of
which wounded Joe Bamett.
Dorrick swore that he had since remained
away from the mine through fear of violence at
the hands of Sullivan, hence this citation ask
ing that Sullivan be bound over to keep the
peace so that Dorrick could go and work the
Sullivan took the stand and after giving his
version of the tight, which differed but little
from Corrick's testimony, said: "Since that
time I have never spoken to Corrick. I don't
kuow who the mine belongs to, and it Corrick
goes up there to work that mine 1 won't molest
nim. I won't even speak to him. He can work
there all he wants to. lam not in possession of
the property and I am not under auy contract
to keep possession ot it."
Iv keeping with the sentiment expressed
aoove, ( orrick set about making preparations
to go to the mine at once and begin operations.
This morning Cyrus Dorrick, a son of J. M. Cor
rick, and a man named J. A. Hainmerson,
started from Fresno with a team and wagon for
the mine. Corrick has a ranch rented four
miles west of town, and the men were instruc
ted to go by it aud change one of the horses in
the team for one on the ranch.
Arriving at the ranch they found J. W. Hart,
cousin of Cyrus Derrick, in charge, aud he re
fused to give up the horse. A dispute arose be
tween the cou-ins and angry' w*ords ensued.
Finally Hart consented to let Dorriek have the
horse, and the latter proceeded to harness the
same but the bridle could not be found. Hart
wou d not tell wheie it was, and Corrick made
a search in the Jtable for it, and having found
ir, Hart made a pUinge at him with a dirk
kuife. Corrick whipped out a revolver ard
shot Hart in the chiu making a severe flesh
Hart then said "All right; take the boise and
bridle and all, I don't care," and started for the
house. Fearing that Hart would secure a Win
chester riile and use it on him, he followed him
to the house. Hart's rifle was under the mat-
Lreat, aud Hart went straight for it, but before
be could rse it Dorrick fired four shots from his
revolver, any one of which would have been
ratal. Dorrick at ouce came into town, went to
:he jail and surrendered himself, and is now
occupying a cell.

The Gem of the Foothills, the Wonder
and Worship of Earth and Sky.
Placerville, December 15th.—The sun came
aut to-day iv all its splendor. The raius de
scended, the Hoods came, and all have disap
peared without their leaving a dollar's worth of
damage in their wake. The grass on the hill
sides and the clover in the vallejsgive all na
ture a verdant appearance, and the c.l Dorado
farnie-s and horticulturists are bright, smiling
and happy. A gentleman who has spent some
twenty years of his life in this section thus ex
patiates on her beauties:
"V\ Dorado county is the wonder and the wor
ship of earth and sky. The sun love* to gaze
upon her cultivated landscape, to flatter her
mountain pips, to mirror herself iv her lakes

to light them up with supernal splendor. The
old night-watchman in tliemoon, with fiis dark
lautern focused upon the sleeping beauty of the
foothills, sits up all night to look at her. From
the time she sinks to rest in her perfumed bed
of flowers till she greets the jocund day with
her cheerful "good morning," the glinting stars
feast their sparkling eyes m her matchless
charms, and guard her slumbers. And in the
great spectacular theater of the enchanting
borderland between earth and sky, Utopian
boomers and jealous rivals train their opera
glasses on the daisy of the foothills, as she tosses
her bouquets and tips her highland bonnet to

The Defendants in the Wham Robbery
Case Found Not Guilty.
Tucson (A. T.), December 15th—The Wham
jury was charged at noon yesterday, ard after
being out less thau two hours, brought in a ver
dict ot not guilty.
The crime for which the defendants were tried
was committed May 11th, about 1 o'clock iv the
afternoon, near Cedar Springs, Graham county.
Major Wham, a Paymaster of the United -lates
army, with aa escort of eleven colored soldiers,
was on his way to Fort Thomas to pay off the
soldiers. After leaving Cedar springs the am
bulance entered a narrow gorge, in which it
was found a high bowlder had been rolled. The
soldics got out of the ambulance, taking their
rifles with them. While in the act of removing
the rock, they were fited upon from ambush.
The soldiers sought shelter behind the rocks,
but by a tlank movement ol the robbers were
driven out, and alter uinc of their party had
been wouaded, sought safety in flight. Major
Wham and Dlerk Gibbon remained concealed
behind the rock uutil their escort fled, when
they also departed. The fight lasted nearly two
hours, and SJti.GOO was secured by the robbers
Two weeks afterwards the defendants, M. K.
Dunningham, Gilbert and Wilford Webb, Lyman
and Walt Follett, David Rogers aud Thomas
Lamb, were arrested.
The trial has engendered a great amount of
bitter feeling in Graham county among the Mor
mons, to which church the defendants and wit
nesses belong. The verdict ot not guilty ren
dered so readily occasions much comment.
COOL AND BUSINESSLIKE.
How a Diamond Springs Man Escaped
With His Swag.
Nevada, December 15th—One man, armed
with a pistol, this afternoon robbed the Downie
ville stage four miles above here. Three passen
gers were aboard. One of them, Oharles Gipe,
of Diamond Springs, El Dorado county, slipped
out of the opposite side of the stage from the
robber and escaped without being scene. A
wagon came up behind the stage, and the two
men on it were made to stand in the row with
the stage people. The robber then went
through the pockets of all, getting 8145. He
cut open the mail tack and took the registered
packages. He broke the padlock on Wel'.s-
Fargo's box. but could not get into the inside
compartment. The teamsters say they saw two
other armed men in the brush as they came up.
The man who did the work was very cool and

London, December lfth.—The British lion
has begun to roar at Portugal because Major
Serpa Pinto has picked a quarrel with Mako
iolo, an Airiean potentate, shot several hundred
of his followers to pieces with Gatliugs and cap

Makololo by the British Consul. Thinking
himself deserted by England, Makololo threw
up his hands Portugal, being undersized and
consumptive, will uaturaly lie compelled to
eat crow and pay well fur the privilege.
A CASUS UKLI.I.
The papers here express much indignation
at the action of Major Pinto iv making war on
Makololo's tiibe in Africa, in violation of Brit
ish interests. The ULbe says that the conduct
ol Port: gal is practically a casus belli. Fug
land does not relish warriug with contemptibKs,
but if they bcconio arrogant, insulting or ag
gressive beyond endurance, she will hot hesi
tate to make her power felt. The British fleet
might exercise a rentle pressure at Lisbon. A

"I have had no intimation." said his Honor,
"that the jury thinks it will be unable to agree,
and I am of the opinion a verdict will be ulti
mately reached, I did not expect any verdict,
even if reached, would be turned iv to-day. It
is. in fact, doubtful whether the jury is consid
ering the case at all to-day. Most of its mem
bers sre religious men, members of some
church—and it is altogether likely that if any
particular mau demurred st considering the
niat'er to-day, the jury would at once acqui
esce to his scruples and postpone further delib
eration until to-morrow.
"You do not share then la the belief there
will be a disagreemeu ."'
•1 do not. I feel quite confident the jury will
agree in time. There is no good reason for this
hasty conclusion of a disagreement. There are
a thousand instances where juries have beeu
out much longer than this, and yet finally
agreed upon a verdict."
"It is stated that you intend to keep the jury
out until they do agree in the case a week or
two it necessary. Is such yon intention ?"
"Of course it would be improper for me to
state at this time my intention-, even if I could
anticipate complications which might lead to
such a determination. It must be borne in
mind, however, that the Court must necessarily
exercise discretion in such a matter as that the
Supreme Court msy have to pass on iv this
case. Dropping the Cronin case altogether, I
will illustrate with an imaginary case. Sup
pose we have a case where eleven men are
agreed upon the guilt of a defendant, aud the
twelfth believes iv his innocence. That jury,
we will say, is kept out two or three days, and
the status of the opinion Lt the same—oue man

the Judge should order them out indefinitely
after they had stated their inability, and ulti
mately fece them to a verdict, the eleven men
all the time aiguing with, remonstrating with,
and chiding with the twellth. Suppose then
the case should go to the Supreme Court, and
the twelfth man snould come forward and state
that he had been coerced aud worried into au
agreement by his fellows against his.^ut.tr.r

doubt that the Suptcme Court would invalidate
that verdict, or order a new trial of the cause T
"This jury." he said, "would be given ample
time and every opportunity to ugree, but the
demarcation lutween a deliberate conclusion
and a coercive verdict should be clo*ely drawn.
The law does not Csutemplate au inquisition to
extort judgment from the mind of a juror."
"Have you received any requi st from the jury

"I have no.. I have never been in the jury
room, and indeed I have no right to enter it.
Should they request my fuller interpretation of

it is the duty of the Court to call them iuto

Evanston (111.), December 15th.—A repre

at the home of John Culver, the supposed ob
j*cting juror in the Cronin case, and had an
interview with his wife, who has been charged
in the Chicago papers with having had a secret
and presumably improper couvcrsutiou with her
husband before the jury retired.
The family is greatly agitated over the reports
in the papers. Mrs. Culver told of her actions
on Friday, saying she sent her son down town
in the morning to tell Bailiff Santa, whom she
knew well, that she would not take dinner
with her husband, as she had been accustomed
to do. In the atternoou she saw her husband.
Bailiff Santa stood right beside them and heard
every word they said She only spoke of not
having come down to dinner, etc. She did not
endeavor to hold any private conversation with
In regard to the intimation that her husband
had been bribed, she said she had never spoken
to any ag;ut of the defendants, and had never
had any conversation with her husbaud which
she would hesitate to make- public.
"I do not believe," she added, "that there i 3
a man on earth who could bribe Mr. Culver. I
do not know his pos.lion iv the case. I do know
that my sou aud my husband's partner met
states Attorney l-ongenecker to night, and that
gentleman expressed himself conndent of my
husband's integrity. Mr. Culver is a very de
