Story of the Colima's Wreck Confirmed Though Agents of the Vessel do not Admit it One Hundred and Sixty Pas sengers Unaccounted for. Prof. Whiting of the California Uni versity Among the Misslne Third Officer's Story. By the Associated Press. San FKANCisco.May 29. Only meagre and unsatisfactory advices have been received today regarding the foundering of the Pacific Mail company's steamer, Colima, near M3nzanillo, Mexico, on Monday night. Pacific Mail officials persist that they have received no noti fication of the wreck and have tried to discredit entirely the statement of the disaster. Despatches have been received by the Merchants' Exchange and by private shipping firm?, all confirming the tale of the oc ean tragedy. Captain Pitts of the steamer San Juan , telegraphed this morning that he had picked op a boat containing nineteen persons. Fourteen were passengers and five members of the crew of the Colima. The San Juan is in search of the other seven boats of the Colima. The occupants of the boat picked up are: Cabin passengers Domingo, Al bano, Cushlng, Thornton, A. J. Suther land, Baiz; steerage passeugerg-Jno.W. Saraband, H. W. Boyd, Antonio Romiz, G. D. Boss, S. J. CNiel, J. Rowan, Jose A. Saliz, L. L. Zangerie ; crew O. Han sen, third officer ; A. Carpenter, A. K. Richards-.m, Raymond Aviles and J. Morel. Two Cashing brothers and a lady and gentleman named Thornton, were aboard the ill-fated vessel. A cipher message to a local shipping firm from third officer Hansen in charge of the boat picked up says: About 11 :15 on Monday night as the Colima was about fifteen miles from Manzanillo an accident occured to the machinery . Hansen believed the boiler burst. The Colima began to sink rapid ly and a scene of disorder and wild con fusion followed. One boat was lowered and five others were'hung out, but as far as Hansen knows the boat he com between our wav erf doing busi- $2.50 3.50 4.50 6.00 7.50 manded was the only one which got clear of the sinking ship, the night being dark, she quicklv foundered and if the other boats got clear away, the calmness of the sea and the low sandy beach twenty miles distant, should en able them to effect a landing. As all the passengers were asleep,- Hansen fears that few escaped. One hnndred and sixtv ot the passengers and crew are still unaccounted for. The following passengers from San Francisco landed safelv at Mazatlan before the Colima proceeded toward Manzanillo: J. w. McCutcheu, W. C, McCutchen, J. W. C. Maxwell, H. M. Miller, T. F. Dell, G. V. Gray and R f . unsay. Among the passengers unaccounted for are Prof. Harold Whiting, Mrs. Whiting, Mies Rose Whiting and two children, of Berkeley. Prof. Whiting occupied a chair in the state university. Another is J. E Chilberg of Seattle who was on his way eonth ' to interest Central American coffee planters in a new steamship line between Central America and Paget sound. The latest dispatch from Mazatlan via New York, says: "The accident occurred at about 11:15 o'clock; 160 missing." The inference here is that the vessel struck on a rock. The insurance board htlrt a meeting today bat took no action. The agent at Manzanillo will be notified what to do tomorrow. WILL IT BE ZULICR? He May Be the New Governor of Arizona. The President Said to Have Decided Upon the Removal of Governor Hushes His Successor. The following Associated Press tele gram is clipped from the San Francisco Chronicle of May 27 : New York, May 26. A special to the Herald from Washington says: Ari zona is soon to have a change of gov ernor. The president and Secretary Smith have decided to remove the present governor, Hughes. It is al most certain that ex-Governor Zulick who was governor of Arizona in Cleve- land's first term, will be appointed as Governor Hughes' successor. Secretary Smith has already spoken to ex-Uovernor Zalick in the matter and asked him if he would accept the the position. The ex-governor has de clined to mase an answer to the ques tion until a vacancy exists, but it is un derstood that he will accept. The only argument against Governor Zulick's ap pointment in the mind of Secretary Smith is that Governor Zulick's res idence is in Asbury Park, N. J. UNYINDICATED. It Took a Jury Just About Two Minutes To Find Brother John Davis Guilty. The Trial Not As JRepugnant as the Crowd Expected. An Interested Auditor Admonished a Witness and Was Sent to Jail For Contempt. Brother John Davis will congregate in jail tor some montng to come. Any religious service in which he may participate will have to be brought to him like his meals. In two ballots and two minutes a jury yesterday afternoon found Brother John guilty of breaking through the Edmunds law. This means that he may get either six months in jail or a fine of $100. This isn't much bat it is a great deal to Brother John and it is everything to the unfortunate white girl whose shame is as firmly established by the verdict as Brother John's punishment is assured. This idea was made a point in the plea of Geo. Purdy Bullard for the defense. "Gentlemen of the jury," said he,. "if you convict this defendant the least weight of your verdict will fall upon him. You will fix an indeli ble stigma upon that "girl and not only noon her but upon her children to the third generation." A bigger . crowd than had been dig- appointed the day before witnessed the opening ot the case yesterday morning impatient or any delay in tne dirty dis closure. The audience wa9 again subjected to disappointment by the tactics of the prosecution which had determined to omit all the more repugnant features of the caee. And they were omitted. Only enough circumstantial evidence was in troduced to insure cotlTiction so that the disclosure was no more revolting than that which is made at the average trial of persons of the same color charg ed with immorality. J. he strongest witness for the prosecution wbb Justice Johnstone to whom Davis had proudly admitted the crim inal relation. The testimony next strongest was furnished by Dr. J. E. Wharton and Louis Faure, whose rooms are separated only by adobe walls from Brother John's late harem on an alley in the rear of the Steinegger lodging house. Both identified the girl as the visitor who used, to spend the night at Davis' room. The voung girl herself was put on the stand and denied all improper relations with Davis. She had associated with him, had gone to church and other places with him and she liked him 6he said, otherwise she would have had nothing to do with him. The defendant also testified and de nied everything including his admis sion to Justice Johnstone of his guilt. The prosecution had not made as strong a case as it was possible to make. Strength had been sacrificed to decency but it was evidently strong enough. The arguments wore limited to ten minutes. Half of the time of the de fense was devoted to imploring the jury to disregard lack of harmonious coloring in the picture offered for in spection. The jury went out and the audience got up to stretch its legs. Before this process of elongation had been fully concluded the iarv returned and handed in a verdict of guilty obtained on the second ballot. On the first one jury man voted for acquittal. The trial was enlivened by an inci dent which had not been expected. During the testimony of Dr. Wharton which was extremely salacious and de livered in a low tone, a voice from one of the rear benches cried "Louder!" That voice belonged to William Mc Donald, whom the trial had attracted from his duties in a butcher shop. He was taking a day off just to hear ths trial and had determined not to permit his enjoyment to be marred by a lack of proper acoustic properties in the room or a lack of elocutionary distinct ness in the witness. "Who's that cries 'louder'?" asked Judge Baker indignantly. Mr. Mc Donald was thrown into bold relief against a large colored man who sat di rectly behind him and who put his hand on Mr. McDonald's shoulder, thus pointing him out to the court. Mr. McDonald was invited to come forward and take a place among the lawyers, the prisoner and newspaper reporters and other prominent personages where he could hear moie distinctly. "Why did you cry out 'louder'?" asked the court, ilr. McDonald was argumentative and defiant. "Well," Baid he, "its business for the witness to talk so he can be heard." "Its none of your businesso be here at all," rejoined the court ; "you had no busi ness to leave your work to be present at this trial and it is only the court's business to admoni6h witnesses to speak louder. I will send you to the county jail for five days for contempt." Mr. McDonald was taken below and missed the rest of the trial. But he had hardly gotten out of tne hands of the United States district court of the Third Judicial district before he fell into the hands of the of that self-constituted tribunal whose jurisdiction extends throughout the county jail. In a few minutes the following note was sent out to the sheriffs office : Mr. 8heriff: Please pay to the Kangarroo court Jl and charge the same to my account. McMonald. This was the amount of bis fine. The usual fine imposed by the kangaroo court is fifty cents bat Mr. McDonald's case was regarded as one of extraordin ary gravity and then the prisoners knew he had money. The case of Juan Valenzuela, charged with Belling liquor to an Indian, was tried and he was promptly acquitted. The case of Ira Richards, in jail un der an indictment from last term, charging him with intimidating a United States witnees, was continued for the term and the defendant was re leased on his own recognizance. All the criminal business having now been disposed of the federal jurors were finally discharged and the court was adjourned until Friday morning. AT FIREMEN'S HALL. The ComDetlng Hose Team not Yet Formed. A meeting of the fire department was held last night to take further action in the organization of a special team to compete at the hose tournament at Prescott. The work of selecting the team was left to a committee. There seems to be a difference of opinion con cerning the manner in which the team should be constituted and this differ ence was not settled last night. Pres cott's challenge was however formally accepted. 1 : The committe appointed to solicit funds for the payment of the expenses of the team to Prescott reported that $500 had been secured and that probab ly as much more as is necessary could be obtained without difficulty. A telegram was received from the chief of the fire department at Walla Walla Wash, asking the fire department to decorate the grave of Eugene Van Horn a former member of the Walla Walla department. The telegram stat ed that $5 had bsen mailed to purchase flowers. LAST SAD RITES. Funeral of the Late Secretary Gresham. Magnificent Funeral Train En Route to uhlcago Bearing; the Illustrious Dead. By the Associated Pr iss. Washington, May 29. The remains of the late Secretary Gresham lay in state in the Arlington annex this morn ing and many floral tributes were sent. MrB. Gresham is so broken down in spirit and exhausted by the long vigils that she was forced from the room where the body was after being thirtv minutes alone with the dead. At ,9:15 President Cleveland, accompanied by Col. Wilson, who looked far irom well, arrived. The camera fiends took snap shots regardless of the solemnity of the oc casion. Thirty seconds later the hearse drawn by two black horses dwew up, presently followed the members of the cabinet in the order of their rank The honorary pall bearers descended the Btepi and stood with uncovered heads while eight artillerymen carried the casket with slow and solemn tread. The casket was Bhroaded in the folds of American flags and the stars and stripes could be hardly discerned for the flowers banked upon the casket. The casket was preceded by the pre Bident and cabinet and was borne by the artillerymen to the east room where services took place. The east room was elaborately decorated. Seats were reserved for the kinsfolk of the dead man, President and Mrs. Cleve land, members of the cabinet and their WIVSS. The services were simple, the full burial service of the Methodist Episco pal church. The quartet sang "Lead Kindly Light." The entire service lasted bat fifteen minutes. The funeral train, of unusual magnificence, started at 2 :15 and will reach Uhicago at Z p m. tomorrow. A Russian Cold Basis. St. Petersburg, May 29. A law has been passed permitting commercial transactions to be conducted on a gold baaia. NOT IN IT. Even No Show for Cold Buss In the East. Fro:n the Mohave County Miner. Sheriff James Rosborough returned from an extended visit to his old home in the east Tuesday night. He says the sentiment of the east is fa9t crystaliz ing on the silver question and that if an election was held today the gold bugs wonld not be in it. The sheriff visited his old home in Canada and had a spledid time. The insane man whom he took back with him to Pittsburg was handed over to his relatives, but the opinion of the family physician was that he would never recover. A NATION'S WOE Memorial Services in Phoenix Today. An Elaborate Program of Exercises. The Parade Will Move at 3:SO O'clock This Afternoon. A National Holiday Which Serves a Broader ''Purpose Than Its Founders Conceived. Flowers will bloom today on the Na tion's gloriouB dead. In every city and hamlet between the Atlantic and the Pacific; from the British possessions to the southern border will be awakened memories sweet, bitter and tender. Thirty years have not effaced a jot of sentiment. It has not only withstood the effect of corroding time but it hasr grown in the same ratio that surviving; comrades of the dead have joined those whose shroud was the Bmoke of battle and whose grave the hastily constructed trench. This day originally designed to per petuate the memory of those who fell in defense of the Union has sarved a broader purpose than its founders con ceived. More than any other single thing it has narrowed the bloody chasm which threatened long after the war to hinder the establishment of a Union other than a Union in name. Time has softened the hatred which suc ceeded the straggle and the honest de fenders of the flag and the honest sup porters of the lost cause meet on com mon and consecrated ground and mingle their tears for the dead not of the north or of the south but for the fallen heroes of a whole nation. Of all the blood shed in the War of the Roses, of all the hatred engendered nothing remains. There are no longer house - oi York caud Lancaster and nameB of the brave knight9 of either houses are the proud heritage of all England. So in time will the names of Grant and Lee. Sherman and Jack- eon, Heincock and Johnston be equally loved and honored on either side of Mason and Dixon's line. In no community in this country do the surviving soldiers of the north and south more nearly banish the bitter memories of the war and preserve only- tender recollections of the struggle. In no other is there greater mutual respect and in no other is there greater unani mity of patriotic sentiment on Memo rial dav than in Phoenix. The ceremonies of today will b3 more extended than on any previous anni versary of the day. The following program haa oeeo arranged. PARADE. City Marshal aod Aids Mounted Drum Corps.

The oldest inhabitant admits he never Baw anything like it this sort of December weather near the first of Jane. The sensation is novel and pleasing and has caused a resurrection of overcoats end wraps. As cool weather is probably not prevailing in any northern community. The weather wise are unable to account f ot it but it was rumored yesterday that it was a breath from a saow storm in the north ern part of the territory. Anyway, the atmosphere seems to be edging around to Uncle Sammy Hughes' rain storm due here about tomorrow and to be of such inte naity that dwells a in low places will hunt high ground.
