A.: a detail of soldiery from the National Guard and two platoons of po lice made up from Captain Douglass' watch. The whole arrangements for the funeral ceremonies in this city were intrusted to the care of Admiral Brown, and perfected by him with the smallest possible delay. SYMI'ATMY —BOM THK PRESIDENT. t Washington, Jan. 21.—The first offi cial information received by this Govern ill.nt of the death of King Kalakaua was conveyed in a note from the Hawaiian Minister to Secretary of Shite Blame to day. The Secretary communicated the fact to the President, and subsequently r. plied to Minister Carter, expressing for the President deep regret tiiat Hawaii had lost a v. iseiuid good sovereign, under whose bene_cent rule the people of 1 lawaii have prospered, and whose efforts bad been so constantly and signally pat forth to strengthen tho" ties of mutual ad vantage- between the kingdom and the United states. He farther requested the Minister to convey to the royal l'amily the heartfelt sympathy the President feels for their great affliction. There will be r.o further action bythe Executive until an official notice "shall have been received of the formal installa tion of Biliuokahini. Instructions, how ever, have been sent to the General com manding the Division of the Pacific and the Admiral commanding the naval forces on the Pacific lo pay full military honors to tin- dead King. Acting under these instructions, the nrmy and navy authorities at San Fran cisco have a-ssumed charge ofthe fan* ral arrangements, and the transfer of the re mains to tiie flagship Charleston will be marked by the highest military honors \ authorized by the regulations. The Charleston will make the trip to Honolulu as rapidly as possible. She will remain at that point to participate in the ceremonies attending the burial of the King and the coronation of his suc cessor, and will, at the same time, see that the interests of this country are fully protected. THE RECORD-UNION. While tho authorities at Washington are desirous of doing the highest honors to the Hawaiian Government in its be reavement, they are somewhat perplexed as to the best course to pursue. There is no precedent to follow, as this is the first fast—nee where a ruler of a foreign country has died on American soil. It is said, however, that there will be ample time for further action when the Government is advised the installation ofthe new ruler. A GOOP FRIEND LOST. Secretary Blame said this afternoon that the United States had lost a good friend fa King Kalakaua, and it would do | every possible honor to his memory. "Our relations with Hawaii," he said, are of the friendliest character, and so far as I am able to judge will be fa no wise affected by a change in the Govern ment. 1 have confidence in the friend ship and good will of Queen Liliuokalani, and have no reason to doubt that she will perceive the wisdom of continuing the friendly intercourse of the two coun tries." Mr. Carter, the Hawaiian Minister to Washington, said this afternoon: "Tho death of King Kalakaua will fa no wise affect the peaceful condition ofthe affairs of Hawaii. I can see no reason,-' he con tinued, "why his death should cause any complications whatever. Princess Liliuo kalani was Princess Regent during the absence of Kalakaua. She was heiress to i the crown, and all that is necessary is for her to proclaim herself Queen. Queen I Kapiolani is now Queen Dowager. Prin cess Liliuokalani ruled in ihe absence of the King, and she will simply continue to reign the same as if tho King were still alive, but absent from the country." _AI—__uta's last REQUEST. Carter amoks with considerable feeling with regard to the failure of Congress to amend the McKinley Act, so as to pre scribe that its provisions shall not inter fere with the existing treaty relations of the United States and Hawaii, and he hoped the vessel which will convey the King's remains to Hawaii will also con vey the news that Congress had carried out tlie President's recommendations on this subject. "Tiiis"matter," continued Carter, "un doubtedly clouded the last days of King Kalakaua. The last official communica tion 1 had from him was a telegram from San Francisco last Friday, just before the final stupor overcame him. In this tele gram he informed me that his health was but indifferent since his return from the south. He went on to urge that I use my influence to have that clause restored to its place iv the McKinley bill, and told me to ask Secretary Blame to use his best efforts in getting what in reality every one wanted, but what as yet had not bee granted." In closing the interview, Carter said it is a popular error that General Dominis, Queen Lililuokani's husband, is a British subject, and that her accession to the throne means a commercial triumph for Great Britain. According to Carter, Gen.-.ral Dominis is a native American haying been born fa Boston; but in his opinion General Dominis does not cut any figure in tiie political situation, be cause of his long-continued infirmity. SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY. Action Taken For and Against Its Di vision. Riverside, Jan. 21.—Delegates from the section included within the proposed new county of Riverside met here to-day and changed the boundaries to conform with the wishes of persons in San Ber nardino and Badlands.

One was a quarter-inch hole and the other three-eighths. They are supposed to have been seared away before the completion of the job. About the same time of night two men got into the rear of Schwab's variety store by breaking the balusters off the stairs. They were trying to break the doors of the store open, when frightened away by a family living up stairs. When i coming out they saw a policeman ap | preaching, and started to run, but they were captured and taken to jail. Tiie police think there isa gang of five in town. ♦ THEY WERE IN IT.

SACRAMENTO, THURSDAY MOI_NT_TG-, J___>TUA_lY 22, 1891. WAR CLOUD. Trouble Expected Between Guate mala and San Salvador. QUANTITIES OF ARMS PURCHASED IN NEW YORK. Thousands of People Thrown Out of Employment hy tho Cold Wave In Franco—Belief That Emperor "Will iam Is Attacked With tho Disease Which Caused Emperor Frederick's Death. Special to the Record-Union. (♦-ew York, Jan. 21.—Two officers of the ('".nteii!alan army aro now in New York City, purchasing arms and ammuni tion, ar.d n third representative of tho Guatemalan Government is here, buying horses for cavalry and held artillery serv- | ice. The officers' mission appears more than to threaten that tho peace so recently established between Guatemala and Sal vador is to be broken. It is practically a promise of war, and already the prepara rations ofthe Government of Guatemala have been accepted by those aware of them as a warning that with the opening of spring hostilities will begin. A letter received here dated December sth confirms tljfo rumors of war. "I am sorry to inform you," says tho writer, "that peace in this unfortunate country will be disturbed in tiie near future, and that the late war with Salvador will be renewed. "The Government is endeavoring to prepare itself for the struggle, which on some pretext, or other will be begun iv March next, as soon as the harvesting of coffee is ended. RIGOROUS WEATHER. .Numerous Fatalities Reported Through out Austria. Vienna, Jan. 21.—Several trains and snowplows havo stuck fast in the snow near Gumpoldskirchen. The passengers were compelled to leave the cars and wade through deep snow to the nearest station. The numerous fatalities are due to the exceedingly rigorous weather re ported from all parts of the country They include the cases of men frozen to death with their horses while driving. THOUSANDS OUT OF EMPLOYMENT. Paris, Jan. 21.—1t is estimated that 50, --000 persons were thrown out of employ ment by the severe weather. The total loss to France in wages, by stoppage of trade and the blighting of crops, will probably reach 60,000,000 francs. All the hospitals and infirmaries are crowded. Pie administration has placed dead wood in the state forests at the disposal of the poor. Tho seaport of Fecamp, on tho Knglish Channel, at the montli of the Fecamp River, is inundated. The town was flooded so quickly that it was with dilli culty that the inhabitants were rescued. WARMER IN ENGLAND. London, Jan. 21.—The latest reports from all parts of England show an aver age rise of temperature of 25 degrees. Tlie mercury is now standing at ttie highest points reached since November. A Booth westerly gale prevails on the Scottish and Irish coasts. Bain is falling fa all parts of the kingdom. On the continent the thaw was less decided. PRUSSIA. Discnsslon in the House Upon tho Re mission of Stamp Dues. Berlin, Jan. 21.— In the Prussian House of Representatives to-day Kichter raised a discussion as to the remission of stamp dues upon a deed of entail exe cuted by ex-Minister Yon Ballthausen, formerly head ofthe Department of Agri culture. Bichter charged the Minister with taking unfair advantage of their official positions. Minister of Finance Miguel replied that the fees amounted to only "10,000 marks, and were remitted in accordance with the express wish of tho late Emperor Fred erick. Bidder's motion was defeated by a large majority. After the debate closed, Yon Ballthau sen handed tho amount remitted to the Emperor to dispose of as he thought best. EMPEROR WILLIAM. Report that Ho Is Attacked With a Terrible Disease. Berlin, Jan. 21.—An ominous coinci dence is mentioned in connection with the court festivities on Monday night at Berlin. Emperor William was to have made a speech, but his physicians in sisted that he should not, owing to his sore throat. This was exactly the first public announcement made recalling the trouble which brought about the death at the late Emperor Frederick, and the re collection of that fact cast no little gloom over Monday night's brilliant assembly. The question suggested to many minds is whether the young Kaiser has the be ginning of tho terrible complaint which gave him the crown at thirty. The Ger man press dare not hint at such a thiug, but Berlin is full of whispers. NOME RULE. Salisbury Says tho Contest is Neither Won Nor Lost. London, Jan. 21.—Lord Salisbury, in a political speech at Cambridge, said he did not believe either that the home rule contest was on the point of victory, or that it was dead. He said: "Many posi tions must be carried before home rule is victorious. Even if the mysterious home rule bill is passed, it will be our duty to undo the mischief. "My belief is that home rule owes its existence to two very clever men—Glad stone and Parnell. While they support it I should give you imprudent advice if 1 persuaded you that its battle was over. A vigorous struggle is still tjefore you, The recent home rule rehearsal in Lon don and Kilkenny proved tho Irish men quite incapable of conduct ing an independent parliament. It had further shown the unlimited power of the priesthood, whose matchless organization swept down the man who had been the despot of the whole Irish movement here and in America. That is the ruthless organization beneath whose heel they would place the Protestants by granting home rule." LITTLE STIR CREATED. ■ O'Shea Calls McCarthy an "111-Con structed Dummy." London, Jan. 21.—1t has become known that Captain O'Shea lately wrote Justin McCarthy demanding an apology for his hinting in a speech that a different color would have been given Parnell's conduct in the divorce case if O'Shea bail been t-ross-examined. McCarthy's reply not being satisfactory, O'Shea has addressed him another letter, referring to McCarthy as an "ill-constructed dummy, with straw starting from every seam," and saying that McCarthy possesses two qualifica tions for his present post —meanness and mendacity. The matter has created a stir. Strain—l Relations. London, Jan. 21.—The relations be tween Italy and France are again becom ing strained, owing to African rivalry. Franco is rapidly reaching for Tripoli and Abyssinia, and would have attached Tripoli but for the fact that any move in that —traction means war with Turkey, the Sultan having resolved that Tripoli shall remain part of his Empire if he has to tight for it. Italy claims a protectorate over Abyssinia, but French agents have been trying to win the Abyssinians over to France, and there is evidence that they have been partly successful. Serious Charge Against a Dlvino. Bordeaux, Jan. 21.—A noted clerical, Abbe Laponniere, of tho Church of St. Sttlpicc, has been arrested on a serious charge of embezzlement and infanticide. A niece of the abbe's was accused at com plicity in the death of the child, and when Abbe Laponniere learned of her arrest he tied from the place. When the woman was searched, however, letters were found on her person which disclosed his where abouts to the officers. Brazil Congress. RioJaneiho, Jan.2l.—-In the Assembly to-day the Constitution was n ad the lirst time. Several amendments were pro posed. Tho Assembly passed a resolu tion concerning certain acts of the Pro visional Government, whereupon the Ministers of the Interior and Commerce tendered their resignations. Home Rule Won. London, Jan. 21.—Furness, the Glad stonian candidate, was elected over tho Unionist fa Hartpool to-day to succeed to the seat of the late Thomas Richardson. At the last election the home ruler was defeated. Severe Earthquake Shocks. Vienna, Jan. 21.—Yesterday several severe earthquake shocks were experi <i datPressburgand Lintz. No great damage was done.

San Francisco, Jan. 21.—The annual meeting of the California Fruit Union was held in Irving Hall to-day, Presi dent Anderson in tlie chair. Tho report of the Trustees, made by Secretary Fab-bank, was presented. It was a long document, showing in detail the work of the year. The Trustees, it was said, aro proud of the season's work. "With the books showing a business con ducted amounting to nearly a million and three-quarters dollars for seven shipping months, requiring handling of nearly 1,400 cars of fruit, with 000 or more for warded by various members, we have a grand total but a few short of 2,000 out of about 8,300 shipped by the entire State. Tho Trustees, without contradiction, lay claim to the distinction of havfaft, forwarded nearly two-thirds of tho entire green de ciduous fruit shipments of the State."

Outof this freight cost 5620,688; cartage, commission and cold storage, P68,458, a total of §779,126, leaving f32L886 as net return to those shipping. There are yet returns from two cars of late pears to be heard from, which will increase the amount of gross rales by fally 2100,000. Financially tiie union was nevermore prosperous. With all debts paid and nothing outstanding, there is in tho treasury S-'!4,000 as the result of the sea son's work. The Directors have voted a dividend of 6 per cent, and a rebate of 2 1-10 per cent, on gross sales of shipping members. The expenses of the union wore as fol lows: Office, $1,01-1; profit and loss, §12, --057; salary, §0,400; (traveling expensos, §1,408; office fixtures, #j6O; telephone, §305; freight, $250; telegraph, §2,881; taxes, §31.

[Rridgeport Chronicle-Record, .lan. 17.] The Sacramento Record-Union ap peared on Saturday last in an eight-page form and printed on new typo, making it one of the neatest appearing dailies in the State. It is now printed on a mammoth Goss perfecting press, which will print, cut, paste and fold, four, six, eight or twelve-page papers complete, from one roll of paper, at the rate of 24,000 per hour. Having been present and wit nessed the printing of the first Sacramento Union, on tho 19th of March, 1851, and one of our brothers, Fiank R. Folger, now an "honest farmer" in Sonoma county, having been its city editor for six years, from '54 to '00, we feel a greater pleasure in noting this evidence of its prosperity and the enterprise of its pub lishers. The Record-Union now pub lishes the decisions of the Supreme Court as fast as they are rendered, which makes it doubly valuable to the legal profession, as its members can therein get the deci sions long in advance of other publica tions—and, withal, it is a most excellent newspaper. .«. The Silver Question. Washington, Jaiu. 21.—Director of the Mint Leach appeared before tho House Commitee on Coinage to-day and talked regarding the various features of the sil ver question. He said an agreement be tween a sufficient number of powerful countries could keep gold and sUver at par. He did not believe the free coinage of silver would do it. The effect of the passage of the free-coinage measure would be to send to our mints a great mass of silver from all over tho world. «•■ Patient—"lsn't there some mistake about that bill you sent me?" Doctor— "No, sir; it's correct—§soo." Patient— "To pay that will take every cent I have; I'll starve." Doctor—"Well, dieting is what you need."— Good, New* BEYOND THE ROCKIES. General Miles Satisfied With the Indian Situation. FREIGHT TRAINS TIED UP ON THE CHICAGO AND ERIE. A Sensation Caused at the Meeting of tho National Brick-Manufacturers' AJSsociation—Run on an" Omaha Bank—A Young Actress Ends Her Life by Shooting—World's Fair. Special to the Record-Union. Pine Ridoe, Jan. 21.—This morning the troops, with the exception of tho First Infantry, broke camp and moved to Band's Craven Creek, about four miles south of the agency. The redskins are at a loss to understand tho move. Not a few of them looked upon it with apprehen sion, and have accordingly doubled their pickets. General Miles has defined the duties of the army officers detailed to the different agencies. It has been decided that the First Infantry of San Francisco, and four troops of tho Ninth Infantry will remain at the agency after the main body of soldiers have been ordered home. Regarding the criticism which General Miles' method of disarming the Indians evokes, that gentleman says the work proceeded satisfactorily, and he will con tinue to disarm them in his own way and take his own time to do it. COLONEL CORBIN CALLED HOME. Pine Ridoe, Jan. 20.—Colonel Corbin, Assistant Adjutant-General, has been sailed homo to Chicago by the serious ill ness of his wife. All the troops will be reviewed to-morrow morning by Gen eral Miles. LABOR TROUBLES. 1 Freight Trains Tied Up on the Chicago and Erie Road. Chicago, Jan. 21.—General Manager Tusker of tiie Chicago and Erie Road ad mitted tiiis morning that the road is prac tically tied up by the striking train dis patchers. The only train that went out this morn ing was tho mail for Columbus, Ohio. Outside of the New York train and one or two freight trains, everything is tied up on this division of the road, extend ing to Salamanaca, N. V.. Late this afternoon Manager Tucker said: "There are six dispatchers and from fifteen to thirty conductors on a strike. Everyone of our passenger trains moved on time to day except the North Judson, Ind., accommodation. We are not moving any freight trains, and shall not do so until the situation has devel oped." He also declared that Scott and Hunt ington, the train dispatchers, were dis charged for dereliction of duty, to enforce whose reinstatement the strike on the Erie road was begun. They will not be taken back under any circumstances. A special dispatch to tho News from Fort Wayne, Ind., says that the train dispatchers' and conductors' strike on tho Chicago and Erie road has tied up the road at that point, and only passenger trains aro moving. Marion (O.), Jan. 21.—Not a freight train is moving on the Chicago and Erie between Chicago and Marion. The engi neers at Marion are ready to go out. Their sympathy is with the strikers, as the whole trouble seems to havo been tho dislike of Superintendent Merrill to Scott. Tlio railroad, in anticipation of the trouble, made arrangements with the Pennsylvania and P. C. O. and St. Louis to handle all passenger and perishable business east and west. Buffalo, Jan. 21.—The Superintend ent of tho Erie Road of this city said that nothing was known of the strike reported from Chicago as extending to Salamanca. He said that the strike was not likely to affect tho main line of the Erie east of Salamanca, or between Buffalo aud New York. ST. PAUL OPERATORS. Chicago, Jan. 21.—The situation to-day in the St. Paul telegraph operators strike is rather discouraging for tho men, ten of them having returned to work.

Indianapolis, Jan. 21.—The National Brick Manufacturers' Association has elected Justus C. Adams of Indianapolis President and Richard Smith of Omaha First Vice-President. At the afternoon mooting Purington of Chicago sprung a sensation in the shape of a paper advo cating the profit of the sharing system. Flood of Philadelphia made a sharp speech in favor of tlio working—urn, saying that one Philadelphia manufacturer made §40,000 last year, while his men were not paid enough to live on. All of this created a storm. One mem ber endeavored to have the whole discus sion expunged from the records because such a report would cause a strike, and the men were already troublesome enough.

Testimony Taken Before the In vestigating Committee. SENATOR CAMERON INVESTS IN A LITTLE BULLION. ne Claims That it was Done After the Investigation Resolution had Been Introduceed When Ho Became In terested—F. G. Newlands also Makes a Little in tho Speculation. Special to the Record-Union. Washington. Jan. 21. — The Silver Pool Investigation Committee resumed its session this morning. Doekery of Missouri said he had no i personal knowledge of speculation by Senators or Representatives. He had heard no Congressman say that he was interested in any silver pool, but heard Senator Vest say that a Senator or mem ber, he could not remember which, was implicated. Francis t_, Newlands, of Nevada, testi fied that he had made a little money out of silver speculation. No Senator, Repre sentative or officer of the Government was interested with him directly or indi rectly. Joseph R. Rickey, of Fulton, lie, testi fied that ho was a banker, and last spring purchased silver for speculation. No one was interested with him, and he knew nothing of any speculation by others. Senator Vest said in part that neither directly nor indirectly did he ever, at any time, have any interest in silver, and knew nothing whatever about it of his own knowledge. One of his colleagues told him, after the resolution for the in vestigation was introduced, that he was interested. This resolution, of course, excited some comment among the Mis sourians, it being said that a Missouri Senator or Representative was concerned; and in connection with that mutter, Senator Cameron said he had bought sil ver. I am pretty positive he said it was after the bill was voted on. He said he did not think that he had done anything wrong, and he would make that statement before the committee. He thought he had as much right to do that as to buy corn and wheat, or any other commodity, His action had not been influenced by his interests, be cause it was after the thing was over. Cameron said he bought it after the legislation was passed in the Senate. That David T. Littler managed the mat ter for him. Cameron said Littler came to him and told him he could mako somo money buying silver; that he (Littler) was going to buy some. Cameron said he told Littler to buy some for him, and that Littler bought and sold it for him. BEHRING SEA. Tlie Canadian Government's Action Cuts No Figure in the Case. Washington, Jan. 21.—1t is not ex pected at Washington that the action taken by the Canadian Attorney-General on the Behring Sea case in the Supreme Court will cut any figure in the diplo matic consideration of the question. It is not probable that Blame will give any new instructions to Lincoln beyond those conveyed to him at Washington during his recent visit. Theso instruc tions were based upon the argument out lined in Blame's last letter. The State Department will wait for Salisbury's re ply to Blame's letter before making any further suggestions. If tho English authorities do not feel competent to deal with the case as pre sented by the Stato Department, and v.dl agree to make up a ease for the Supremo Court, and will arrange to be bound by their decision, then there could be no seri ous objection to having the Supreme Court act as the Board of Arbitration; but where the English authorities come in simply to seek to obtain something to bo used for the purpose of embarrassing tho diplomatic solution of the case, the court will not for one moment lend itself to such proceedings. At least this is tho view of Administration circles, and this is a view that is sustained by the best legal talent at the Capital. "WASHINGTON NOTES. Two Matters of Interest to tho 1 _clfic Coast.
