A Man With a Dynamite Project Is Found on a French Ship. Under a Contract to De stroy the Japanese Navy. He Claims to Be an American and Is Armed With Letters to the Viceroy of China. By the Associated Press. Victoria, B. C, Nov. 20. The Bteamer, Enpress of China, arrived today bringing Yokohama advices to November 9. Some excitement has been created in Yokohama by the de tention of the Oriental and Occidental eteamer Gaelic, on her outward voyage to Hong Kong, in order that a search for contraband goods might be made by the Japanese Vjthorities. On the evening of November 4, two torpedo boats took positions on either side of the Gaelic and were presently followed by a guardship containing a detachment of marines. A group of custom house officers went aboard and asked.permission to examine the cargo. explaining that they had received in formation that contraband wares had been shipped from San Francisco. Capt. Hearne protested against the search, but otherwise offered no oppo sition. Ine proceedings were con ducted with perfect courtesy on both sides. After a partial inspection the business was postponed for the night, but was resumed the next day, when the ship was allowed to go on her way. According to a general report two of the passengers were known to be naval experts and possessed of some sscret engine of destruction which was be lieved to be hidden in their baggage. Nothing liable to seizure was found, however. While the examination at Yokohama was drawing to a close intelligence was received that the suspected travellers had transferred themeelves or their belongings to the French mail steamer, Sidney, and were on their way to Shanghai by way of Kobe. Permission to search the ship was obtained from the French consul and a discovery was made that a passeuger calling himself John Brown and claiming to be an American was bound for China under contract with the authorities of the empire to destroy the Japanese navy within eight weeks from the time of bis arrival. He professes to have discov ered an explosive of tremendous power which he declared he bad first offered to the Japanese but as his propoeal had been contemptuously refused he turned to the other belligerent and sought em ployment from the Chinese legation at Washington. The arrested men are nnder close guardianship in Kobe. Brown and a companion named Howie are under arrest at Kobe. It is understood that the French minister in Tokio protests earnest ly against the action of the Japan ese in this case and that he has telegraphed home for spe cial instructions. There is a question that the parties arrested were in the service of China. They bore letters to Li Hung Chang from the envoy at Washington and also a formal contract promising to pay $1,000,000 for the de struction of the Japanese navy and a specified sum for every merchant ship destroyed. The Japanese officials emphatically assert that the seizure was made in ac cordance with methods laid down for Buch contingencies by the highest in ternational authorities, the process having been executed with due caution and discretion by an officer of the Im perial navy. Some doubts are enter tained as to the nationality of Brown and Howie. They declare themselves to be English by birth, but Americans by naturalization. One or both served recentlv in the Brazilian navv. The French Satisfied. Washington, Nov. 20. The Japanese legation here received word that the French government expresses itself satisfied with the Japanese authorities who acted properly in boarding the French steamer Sydney and arresting Mr. Moore, formerly of the Chinese legation here, and an American named Wilde, charged with plotting to destroy the Japanese navy. WITH THE WHEELS. Osen's Wonderful Time Other En tries for the Races. Oscar Osen showed local wheelmen at the park yesterday what is really meant by quick work. He finished the last quarter nf a three-mile run in 30 1-5 seconds after having made an average rate to thequarterof 38 seconds. John son and Gray, the Tucson riders, will arrive this morning and begin training fer the races. J. 8. Griffin, of the racing committee, received a letter yesterday saying that Kid L-acey, the Los Angelee boy phe nomenon, of class "B" would be in the contest. As the date of the races approaches the interest in them grows keener and it becomes more certain that they will constitute an era from which Phoenix wheelmen will date subsequent events. WHAT IS NEEDED. Recommendations Made by the Grand Jury. Everything Relating to the Ma chinery of the County Re- . celves Attention. The grand jury yesterday submitted its final report and was discharged by Judge Baker, who took occasion to highly compliment the body by saying that in point of intelligence, prompti tude in business it surpassed any grand jury ever impaneled in Maricopa county. The general report showed that twen ty cases bad been investigated, fifteen indictments returned and thirteen charges ignored. The rest of the report was made up of the reports of the special committees appointed to investigate the various branches of county affairs. The committee on the jail regards the new structure as an excellent one both in plan and construction. The prisoners had made to the committee a favorable report of the jail officials, but they had a grievance against the Chinaman who supplies them with food. The meat and coffee were indifferent in quality and insufficient in quantity. The jail alBo seemed to be short on bedclothing. The office of the board of supervisors was found to be well kept, but the com mittee recommends the construction of a fire-proof vault for the records. The committee appointed to investi gate the treasury bad not had sufficient time to perform its duties with thor oughness and could be accomplished only by a Bpecial commiltee. This, however, expressly states that it does not recommend this. The district attorney's report in cluded a list of the criminal cases which had been tried in the several justices courts. Eighty complaints had been issued by him before the two justices of this precinct since May 24. The committee appointed on the court bouse recommended that on the completion of the new jail that one or two of the present cages be sent to Gila Bend for the confinement of prison ers committed for misdemeanors. It wa3 stated that during the past, twenty months the expense fos mileage in the transportation of prisoners of this class amounted to $1,500. This committee also finds that all the offices are inadequate as to roam and recommends that in the rearrangement of offices the treasurer's be placed next to the sheriff's. The report states that the court house is in general need of repair. The offices of the recorder, sheriff and assessor were found to be in good order. The present excellent condition of the probate judge's office and the improve ments introduced by Judge Jordan were described. The committee ur gently recommends the construction of a vault for the valuable records of this office. The committee on county thorough fares reported that all the roadmssters were very efficient and careful and that with two exceptions the roads were in good condition. One of these is a sec tion of the Yuma road and the other is a stretch of tbeTempe road between Tempe and the Crosscut. The manner in which the county hos pital is kept was strongly commended, and concerning the method of furnish ing relief to the indigent sick it was recommended that whenever possible to be done they should be removed to the hospital.

Yesterday morning Mrs. Lount, who had been driving him, drove up in front of the house and got out of the buggy. The horse was rest ive, but under control. A strange? came along and offered to hold the horse which probably would have stood. The stranger took hold of the reins and the disturbance commenced. The accommodating stranger was dragged ignominiously down the street and finally succeeded in letting g. The horse subsequently came up against a dray and emerged from the collision with a buggy without wheels. Later Billy Lount hitched him to another buggy.
