THOUSANDS OF CALIFORNIANS WANTED TO SEE PRESI DENT M'KINLEY ONE HOUR AT SAN JOSE Chief Executive Ran Down in His Special Car, Returning Immediately to San Francisco After the Exer cises Were Over-Cabinet Officers Carrying Out Regular Programme. Mrs. McKinley's Condition. San Jose, Cal., May 14.-Thousands of people between Del Monte and San Jose, who had been anticipating a sight of the president for months were disappointed. The president's presence in San Jose for an hour in the afternoon took the edge off the disappointment here, where the rose carnival was being held in his honor and where the floral displays sur passed anything ever before seen in this part of the country. After leav ing Del Monte the cabinet carried out the itinerary as originally planned, stopping at Pajaro and Santa Cruz and visiting the big trees in the San Lorenzo valley, but they had no heart to put into the festivities in the ab sence of their chief and the keen re gret of the people was written in their countenances. Many expressions of kindly sympathy for Mrs. McKinley were heard at each stopping place. At Santa Cruz Secretary of State Hay was the representative of the president to the address of welcome made by the mayor. The president's presence here barely saved the day. He ran down from San Francisco in his special car, arriving here just as the cabinet train pulled into the city from the south. But he only remained for the formal exercises. At 3:30 o'clock, when they were concluded, he was driven back to the station and left immediately for San Francisco. At St. James square, opposite the courthouse, a Handsomely Decorated Stand had been erected and here the formal exercises took place. Immediately in the rear of the stand was the big bou quet-of which so much has been heard. It was 90 feet in circumference and stood in its frame 25 feet high. The stem was a telegraph pole sunk in the ground. It was composed of cut flow ers of every variety that blooms. The idea of presenting this immense floral offering to Mrs. McKinley originated with the ladies of San Jose and the presentation was made to the presi dent by Mrs. E. O. Smith, who ex pressed tender words of regret for Mrs. McKinley's illness and her hopes for her quick recovery. The members of the cabinet took the long drive through the orchards of the Santa Clara valley, which had been planned for the president, visiting on the way the Jesuit college at Santa Clara and the University of the Pa cific. Great preparations had been made along the route to receive the presi dent and the disappointment at not seeing him was very keen. FAMILY OF THREE MURDERED. Shirley (Me.) the Scene of a Terrible Tragedy. Shirley, Me., May 14.-The mur ders which have startled the rural dis tricts of Maine the past few months are almost overshadowed by a tragedy in this town in which a family of three was put out of existence and fire used to bide the crime. The victims are J. W.'sley Allen, a selectman, his wife and 14-3ybar-old daughter. The charred bodies were found in the em bers of their house which stood on the stage road leading from Monson to Moosehead lake. On every hand were evidences that murder and even worse had been done. The only clue to the identity of the murderers is furnished by a man named Johnson, who reported that he was held up on the road by four men, all being intox icated, one of whom answers the de scription of the highwaynan who held up the Willmantic stage last week. The greatest excitement prevails in the community and arms and ammuni tion have been procured by farmers who fear a visit of the murderers. Charles Tibbetts, while driving on the road with his children to hte village school, saw the ruins of the Allen farm house and searched the embers, finding the bones of a body. He gathered the nearest neighbors and the ruins were searched and the bones of three persons were found. At one place near the barn cellar there was blood and locks of Mr. Al. len's gray hair. Boer Prisoners for the Bermudas. Hamilton, Bermuda, May 14.-The British government has rented Tuck ers and Morgans islands to be used as detention camps for Boer prison ers. Active preparations continue at Darrells Island, obtained for the same purpose where camp sites are being arranged. CITY OF PADUCAH SANK. Bodies of Two Passengers Recovered. Many of the Crew Missing. Grant Tower, ills., May 14.-The steamer City of Paducah sank in 25 feet ot water at 9:55 p. m., in less than five minutus after striking a snag, wnile backing from U :unkhorst Land ing. The bodies ao .wo passengers ano were drowned have been recov ered and 22 members of the crew, most of them negroes, are missing. All of the officers were saved. First Mate Tobias Royal of St. Louis says only about 12 passengers were on board, and all were saved except two. The body of Dr. J. W. Bell of Belis Landing, Tenn., was taken out of his stateroom. The remains of a young woman, on which was a visiting card reading, "Mrs. Mary Allen, 430 Eads avenue, St. Louis, Mo.," was recov ered from her stateroom. Several hun dred dollars' worth of Jewelry was found on her body. The passenger list has not been recovered. A diver is searching for it. Only the Texas and the hurricane deck are above water, which reaches to the skylights of the cabins. All the staterooms are completely filled with water. The steamer drifted a third of a mile below the landing before she sank. The first mate says the boat went down within three minutes after striking the snag. He was on the cab in declk and escaped by climbing through the skylight. It is supposed that most of the missing deck hands, who were on the lower deck, were washed down the river. The boat lies down about 100 feet from the Illinois shore. the fore part of the hurricane deck being under water. She appears to be a total wreck. The coroner, C. E. Knauer of Mur physhoro, Ills., is now holding an in quest while the diver is searching for more bodies. Thomas Johnston, watch man of the boat, who is said to be among the lost, was 85 years old and ha'l b.en a steomboatroan for 60 years. He lived in St. louis. AGAINST UNITED STATES. German Paper Advocates Tariff Un derstanding With Russia. Berlin, May 14.-The Cologne Ga zette, which often voices the views of the German foreign office, in the course of a leading article advocating a tariff understanding with Russia in order that the two powers might act jointly against the United States, says: "As matters stand for Europe today the struggle for existence demands that the exceptional position of the United States be abolished. The United States is a most dangerous competitor for Germany, especially in iron materials and hardware. Ger many's tariff policy must be arranged accordingly. "An understanding with Russia of fers ways and means to compel the United States to adapt itself to Eu rope's tariff system by which German agriculture will by no means suffer disadvantage."

FORMER, MAY WIN FIGHT Said That Senator Clark of Montana Has Purchased a Large Block of the Stock-Practically Settled That the Burlington Deal Will Be Put Through by the Northern Pacific and Creat Northern. New York, May 14.-The World says that Senator William A. Clark, who Is now abroad, was a large pur chaser of Union Pacific stock during the day anti that these purchases were made in behalf of the Hill-Morgan party. The World also says: "An immense battle is now on for control of Union Pacific, the fight be ing retaliatory by Morgan against the Harriman syndicate for the latter's struggle to wrest Northern Pacific from the Hill-Morgan crowd. Kuhn, Loeb & Co. have completed a revised account of the stock actually held by them and their allies here and by their agents abroad, This count showed a great change over that made on Saturday. While the stock actu ally in their possession does not give them control the margin is very nar row and they still have a great many purchases to hear from. If one- fourth of these result in delive:'ries of actual stock they will have control." A member of the Harriman-Kuhn, Loch syndicate, who gave these facts to a W,'crld reporter, sal: "When Morgan & Co. stated they had control of the Northern Pacific tl-sy made the statement in perfect good faith. I stated that stocks actu ally in our possession gives indication that we have got control. We do not wish it to be understood that Morgan & Co. have been saying anything that they were not conscientiously enti tled to say." Hill and Morgan Make $20,000,000. '1 lie Harriuman-iunn-Loeb syndi cate made no attempt to say that their control of Union Pacific could not be purchased away from them by the high prices appealing to some of the stockholders who are at present allied with them. When their repre sentative was asked who was buying the big blocks of Union l'acific he said: "Our best information is that it is Senator Clark and the First National bank. Of course in this Senator Clark would be acting in the interests of those who are hostile to Mr. Hiarri man." Official announcement of those who have control of the Northern Pacific will not be made until the end of the month and perhaps not unfil later. It was practically settled during the day that the purchase of. the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy road by the Northern Pacific and Great Northern will hIe put through. The buying roads are to issue $200 bonds for every $100 par value share of Burlington stock. This will give Mr. Hill and Mr. Mor gan a profit of nearly $20,00,000. Pill and Morgan bought up great nuantities r:f 1;;: iington before out siders knew that the purchase was in contcmnnation. In all it is said they got o10.000 shares at an average price of $160. The price that is to be paid by Ibuying roads is $200. TO SERVE TWO TERMS. Newark (N. J.) Bank Cashier Sen tenced for Embezzlement. New York, May 14.-Charles R. Westervelt, the defaulting cashier of the Dime Savings bank of Newark, N. J., was arraigned before Justice Skinner in that city.

United Traction Company of Albany to Try to Run Cars. Albany ,May 14.-Under the escort of a platoon of mounted police and sur rounded by a mob of 2,000 Albanians, 200 non-union men were taken at mid night to the Quail street barns of the United Traction company, which is the main station of the Albany lines of the United Traction company.
