REFR GER1T0RS! m A SEA STORY. An Incident of the In verse's Voyage. Mai-Practitioner Creates a Mutiny. The Captain Is Imprisoned by the Misled Crew. He Breaks Out of Custody in Time to See His Wife Die in the Hands of the Unskilled Doctor. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, Jone 19. The British bark Invernie, Captain Willox, arrived today, sixty-four days from New Castle, N. 8. W., with a moat remarkable etory of mutiny and crime. Just before the vessel left New Castle a man calling himself Dr. Armitage ap plied for passage for himself and wife to San Francisco. Captain Willox gladly took them on board as his own wife needed the services of a physician. About a week ago at sea Mrs. Willox gave birth to a child and Armitase officiated as surgeon. He used in struments in such a manner that the child died, and the captain seeing that he was unskilled as a physician ordered him away from his wife. Armitage appealed to the mate and crew, telling them the captain was killing his wife. The crew, led by the mate, mutinied and the captain after being drugged was locked up. He managed to get out just in time to see his wife die. Several times he was im prisoned by the crew, but he managed to break out. Armitage's real name is Eustace Al exander. He deserted his wife and baby in Sydney and fled to New Castle with another woman. The bark, crew and passengers are cow in the custody of the port warden and the police will make arrests this afternoon. CALIFORNIA CONVENTION. Who Is to Be 'Governor a Sec ondary Matter. The Main and Primary Issue Is a Fight Between the Bosses and Anti-Bosses. By the Associated Press. Sacbamento, June 19. No important change developed today in the situa tion. The contest for the gubernatorial nomination was temporarily lost sight of in the contest between the Burns and anti-Burns crowds for the control of the convention. Governor Markham addressed the convention and began in a facetiouB vein comparing this convention with that of four years ago which nominated him. Then, when he addressed the convention, he was tremendously frightened ; now, no one was more com posed than he. The governor said the convention had. a right to call on him to appeaa before it and gave an account of his steward ship. He had redeemed every pledge made by the party when he was nomi nated. ' Ths expenses of the state had been kept down to the 50 cent limit as promised. Expenses never could be kept down where they should be until the entire framework of the state gov ernment was remodelled. The govern ment made a number of suggestions where changes should be made. Gov ernor Markham concluded by pledging himself to support the entire ticket. AN INVESTIGATION. The Result of Secretary Herbert's Western Tour. Chicago, June 19. A special from Washington says: The first result of Secretary Herbert's Pacific coast tour is an official investigation of the new Puget Sound naval station. Captains Assersin, Menocal and Prindel of the Civil Engineer corps left New York very privately last Friday night for Seattle on a mission which had been carefully guarded. They are ranking officers of their corps. Their expert opinion is required as to the usefulness of the new dry dock, costing $600,000, now under construction. It is claimed that the contractors have not driven the piles deep enough and that inferior concrete has been used. Secretary Herbert thinks it is a bad policy to have the dock prove a failure when an emergency arises for promptly docking a 10,000 ton battle ship. Bank Swindlers Sentenced. New Yobk, June 19. August C Hagan, late cashier of the American Exchange National bank, and C. E. Bartholomew, a depositor, who embez zled $30,000 from the institution, were sentenced today to seven and five years in the penitentiary respectively. A BREAK FOR LIBERTY. Imprisoned Coxeyites at Fort Sii ney Try to Escape. Omah, June 19. A break for liberty ! occurred among the Fort Sidney wea!- lers tms atternoon. According to a pre- 1 arranged plan the deputies sent among the prisoners to gather the cooking utensils were over-powered and a rush was made for the doors but Liddiard and Capt. Cormack had their men on the spot in a moment and the Coxeyites were Bubdued. Winchesters pointed at their breasts drove the tight out of them. Several were badly clubbed and the ring lead ers have been placed in the guard house. LEMON HOTEL RENOVATED. J. M. Sparks Has Leased It-The Most Popular House.

Mr. Sparks is a young man recently from Boise City, Idaho. He has become attached to this city be lieving that its future will warrant him to enter into the hotel business even at a time when everybody claims it is hard. He deserves success and no doubt his pluck coupled with his business ability will bring out the Lemon what it was in its halcyon days. LOCAL BRIEFS. A notarial commission was issued yesterday to Frank Baxter, Agua Ca liente. License to marry was issued yester day to Geo. W. Walters and Lucy M. Woods. The stage mail contract from Wicken bnrg to Vulture was sub-let yesterday for four years by W. W. Wall.

The former was sentenced to eighteen months from Maricopa county a year ago for aggravated assault. Burk was sent from Apache county for a similar term for burglary. Previous to the ar rest which resulted in his conviction Noble bore a good name and had never been arrested. This circumstance was considered in granting the pardon. Burk is suffering from an abscess from which his early death is expected. Lewis Collins has returned from Prescott where he had been attending court as a witness in the case of the Territory vs. Sam Gray, who was charged with inurderitig old man Fry last summer. He reports that Gray was convicted of manslaughter though the testimony indicated that the crime was wilful murder. Owing, however, to his age and physical condition, the jury concluded that five years would vindicate the law as it is in his case, virtually a life sentence. Ben Dorris was thrown from his bicv- cle on Saturday evening and curiously injured. His hat was blown from his head and reaching to arrest it be lost his balance and fell heavily. He was stunned so as to lose consciousness but strangely retained the power of locomotion and was able to "lead" his wheel home.

Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Fair Highest Award. IT WAS TOUGH. Testimony at Which Lawyers Blushed. The Memory of Marcus A. Fry Befouled That the Character of a Woman May Be Destroyed. The Nastlness of the Story Made Seasoned Practitioners Hold Their Noses. When testimony in a legal proceed ing is barred on any other account than irrelevancy or incompetency it may be taken aB a sign that the court or lawyers in the case are abnormally modest or else the testimony is ab normally tough. That's the kind of evidence offered yesterday in the Marcus A. Fry will case. It could not possibly disturb the slumbers of the decedent if the con testants could prove that his health had been impaired and that his intel lect had been weakened by a disgrace ful venereal disease. No doubt it was disrespectful to his memory to assert it and more disrespectful to prove it, but be was dead and the dead are proof against calumny and disgrace. So how could it possiblv affect the dead Marcus A. Fry to show that the legatee, Mrs. Ida May Butler, was an unchaste woman by showing that he had died a roue and a reprobate ? It was no doubt an unpleasant thing to do. It would not have been done for noth ing, but $10,000 is not nothing and what is the character of a dead man against $10,009? There was, therefore, no scruple in showing by the deposi tion of witnesses living in Albuquerque that while the deceased lived there be was a sufferer from gonorrhea, and the conversations he had with various deponents concerning the disease, the means and probability of obtaining relief, its effect upon him, etc., were set forth in such disgusting detail that the contestant's attorney himself sug gested that on account of its character i be submitted wH'iout reading. The deponents R-ere Walter J. Hope, M. D., O. S. Spilsbury, Mrs. C. D. Spilsbury and Alfred Hart, all of Albu querque. Nothing closely touching the merits of the caBe was developed, but there was disclosed a dirty scandal to which the Albuquerque papers gave a great deal of publicity last fall. The character of Mrs. Butler was freely handled, and one witness while shading her reputation for chastity testified that young Fry in a burst of confidence had told him that they had not sinned to gether because he was not in a physical shape to commit sin. No effort was made upon the part of the contestant to show that any merit should be attached to the decedent on this account nor did the attorneys for the petitioner feel called upon to set up a claim of merit in her behalf. It was in fact difficult to see what any of the testimony had to do with the matter at issue. It was shown only that before young Fry crossed Mrs. Butler's life or before Mrs. Butler crossed young Fry's life she and her husband were keeping a rooming house at Albuquerque; that afterward Fry lodged with them and that his landlady became devoted to him, perhaps because he was an in valid, perhaps because he became her lover. Anyway her husband became jealous and there was a scandal and a separation. What will be disclosed today is a subject of breathless conjecture. A VICTORY FOR BOTH. The Case of J. E. Bettler vs. J. E. Dunlap and Vice Versa. The cases of the territory against each J. E. Dunlap and J. E. Bettler on the complaint of the other, were tried in Justice Johnstone's and Justice Kin caid's courts yesterday afternoon and both were discharged. The trial of Dunlap took place first. The two men had engaged in a scrap on Monday morning at the residence of P. H. Coyle, where DunlfiD waB employed and where Bettler happened to be in his capacity of county inspector of fruit trees. There is a quarrel between them of fiva years' standing, growing out of the alienation of Bettler's wife's affections by Dunlap. She afterward obtained a divorce from her husband and married Dunlap, but has since re turned to her husband. The testimony disclosed a peculiarity ot domestic relations, but failed to throw a dazzling light upon the imme diate subject of complaint. On account of the uncertainty as to who was the aggressor Dunlap was discharged. The crowd, lawyers and litigants, moved one door south and Bettler's trial commenced. It was a photograph of the first case and the defendant was discharged on the same ground of un certainty. But the matter is not settled yet. Mr. Covle, whose premises were made the battle ground, lodged complaint against Bettler lor disturbing the peace THIEVES AND THIEVES. One With the Instincts of a Refined Gentleman.
