A Decision Involving' the Long and Short Haul From Eastern Cities to Places in Southern California. Other Washington Dispatches—Con. McCook Succeeds Grierson—An other Federal Election Bill Re ported to the Senate. Associated Tress Dispatches. I Washington, (D. C.,) Aug. 7.—[By the Associated Press.] The Interstate Commerce Commission announced its decision today in the case of tbe Sun Bernardino Board of Trade against the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe and others, in favor of the complainant. The complaint alleged that tho rail road companies charged more on cer tain specified commodities from Mis souri river points and St. Louis, Chi cago, Cincinnati, Detroit and New York to San Bernardino, Cal., than for a longer distance over the same lines to Los Angeles. The points decided are briefly stated as follows: Where the complaint alleges that the greater charge in aggregate for transportation of like kind of property is made for the shorter than for the longer distances over the same line iv the same direc tion, the shorter being included in the longer, and that unlawful preference is thereby given to one locality over another, it is held: The complaint is sufficient to put the carriers on proof tbat the services were rendered under such dissimilar circumstances as to jus tify the greater charge. Water com petition which will justify a greater charge for a shorter distance by rail roads must be actual. Possible com petition will not justify such greater charge under provisions of tho fourth section of the act to regulate commerce. The filing of schedule rates with the commission as required by the statue raises no presumption as to the legality of such rates, and no omission or fail ure to challenge or disprove schedules of rates so filed can have the effect of making rates lawful which are unrea sonable. ANOTHER ELECTION BILL. The Senate Materially Modifies the Lodge Measure. WASHINGTON, Aug. 7.—rßy the As sociated Press.J Among tbe changes which the Senate committee made in the substitute for the Lodge Election bill, which was reported to tbe Senate today, were the following: All refer ence to that section of the Revised Statutes which, it was claimed, pro vides for the presence of troops at the poJ,ls,was stricken out. The House-to house canvass provided for in tho House bill, was stricken out and the provision for drawing juries by com missioners is also omitted. The penal offenses were simplified and made misdemeanors instead of felonies. The punishments were modified,the highest punishment imposed being three years imprisonment aud a fine of one thous and dollars as against imprisonment for five years and a fine of one thousand dollars in tbe House bill. The Judge of tlie Circuit Court before whom application is made for tbe ap pointment of supervisors is authorized to appoint, as supervisor any person he may see fit, not being confined iv bis selection to the list furnished by tbe chief supervisor. In cases whore bal lots are placed in the wrong box, these are not to be counted unless the tally shows the votes for Congressman do not equal the whole number of names on the poll list. Then enough of the votes so wrongly cast shall be added to the tally sheet to make tho total equal to the whole number of votes showu to to be cast. Where olection officers refuse to administer oaths to voters applying therefor, it is provided in the bill that the supervisors shall administer oaths, but no effort shall be made to have the vote thus refused cast, tbe object being merely to preserve the testimony of tbe application and refusal. Gen. McCook Succeeds Grierson. "Washington, Aug. 7.—Gen. Mc- Cook will be assigned to the depart ment of Arizona with headquarters at Santa Fe\ N. M. Laundrymen are Laborers. Washington, Aug. 7.—Tlie Assistant Secretary of the Treasury says the de partment having decided that a laun drynian is a laborer, a Chinaman who is proprietor of a laundry would not under the act of October 1, 1888 be al lowed to re-land in tho United States after visiting his native country. Failure of Kansas Crops. Topeka, (Kan.,) Aug. 7. —The Kan sas State Board of Agriculture has re ports from about five hundred corres pondents representing every county in the State. These indicate that growing crops in every portion have been seriously injured. The severe droutn, intense heat and occasional hot winds prevailing have been the cause of a falling off of corn prospects. Its condition, which one month ago was reported at 90 per cent, is now 33 per cent, of the average crop. It is safe to say the corn crop this year will not exceed seventy-live million bushels. Justifiable Homicide. San Francisco, Aug. 2.—An in quest was held this afternoon in tbe case ot Henry A. Siebert, the moulder killed by Walter Ridoout, an appren tice, on August 2d.

W\stttv<itov, Aug. 7.—An agree ment has been ruached by the conferees LOS ANGELES HERALD. on the Sunday Civil Appropriation Bill upon every item except the appro priation of $720,000 for continuing the irrigation survey under the direction of the Geological Survey, which the Senate struck out of the bill. Another conference will be necessary. A CHANGE OF BASE. A Noted Denver Politician Assumes the Editorial Tripod. Denveh, (Colo.), Aug. 7. — [By the Associated Press.] For sometime past there have been various rumors in cir culation regarding a Republican syndi cate of this city composed of Senator Wolcott, his brother Henry Wolcott, Gov. Cooper, W. 11. Griffith and a son of J. S. Clarkson of lowa. The syndi cate paid $10,000 on the option, which expired at midnight last night, and as the remaining $390,000 was not forth coming. Col. John Aikins, president of the News Company, called the deal off and this morning published the following editorial: "Mr. Thomas M. Patterson has pur chased the whole of Mr. James M. Burnell's stock in the Rocky Mountain News Printing Company, which was fully one half, and also enough of the stock owned by Mr. John Aikins to give him a majority of tho stock and the control of this paper. Mr. Patter son has determined to retire from the pratice of the law after the closing up of all of his present business in the courts by trial or otherwise, and then to assume editorial management of tho News. Although, because of bis pre sent engagements he cannot now give his personal attention to the paper he will hold himself responsible for its editorial utterances. Henceforth Mr. Arkins will continue as heretofore the president and man ager of the company." Mr. Patterson is well known as the leading Democratic politician and criminal lawyer of Colorado. He was a candidate for Governor two years ago and was defeated by Job. A. Cooper. He was Territorial Delegate to Congress in the session of 1875-70 and won a senatorial reputation for himself in his speech seconding the nomination of Mr. Cleveland at the St. Louis conven tion. STOW'S TACTICS. STANFORD'S MANAGER WORKING AGAINST MARKHAM. Willing to Trade Everything to Buck ley for the Legislature—Mark ham Men Confident that He Will Win. Oakland, Aug. 7.—[Special.] The day closes with several new complica tions in the Markham campaign. It is now admitted by all of Markham's friends that Stow, Stanford's manager, is working to defeat Markham, and wants to engage tbe Morrow and Markham men in a quarrel and then offer Chipman as a compromise balm to both. Stow proposes Judge Fitz gerald as candidate for State Senator on the ground that Col. Otis would not even ask him regarding his relations to Stanford. The candidacy of Lindley and his close relations to Stow has alarmed the friends of Bowers' and Mr. Horton, Bowers's brother-in-law, says that the San Diego delegation will not vote for Markham until they have been given a guaranty that the Los Angeles delegates will vote for Bowers. It is claimed that certain of the Los Angeles county delegation, while they love Markham none the less, love Lindley more. The summary of the' situation is that the Stanford managers will de feat Markham if tbey can, and if this be true, it proves thoir intention to trade everything to Buckley for the Legislature. Col. Fred Crockor personally is not in harmony with Stow as to the Dem ocratic nominee. MARKHAM WILL WIN. San Francisco, Aug. 7. —rSpecial. | The fight for Col. Markham never looked better. He will certainly win. THE NIMBLE KAISER. His Agility Savo9 Him From a Serious Mishap. London, August B.—[By Cablo and Associated Dress.] Emperor William visited the dock yards at Fortrmouth today.

His landlady, Mrs. Dallings, says tbe gas was found turned on and it is h«!ieved he was asphyxiated FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 8, 1890. LADIES' DAY. Good Races Yesterday at the Park. The Favorites do Good Work. Half a Length Wins Two Races. Dr. Wise's Glendine makes a Record- Details of the Contests. The attendance at" the Agricultural Park yesterday was larger than upon any preceding day of tlie meeting, about :>OOO people, of whom at least one third were of tlie fairer sex, being within the enclosure by three o'clock. The presence of so many ladies was due to some extent to the fact that the day had been specially set apart as "La dies' Day" by the Association. Tlie weather doubtless had also a good deal to do witli it, as the heat of the sun was tempered during the whole after noon by a gentle breeze from the ocean, and a more enticing day for out door sport could not well be imagined. The inside rail on either side of the judges' box was lined with carriages of every de scription from the entrance gate to the corner at the head of the stretch, and a large number of vehicles were hitched to the fence near tlie club house. Tlie day's sport was fairly exciting, al though the pleasure was marred some what by a tedious wait of almost an hour, while the twoyear-olds were at the post for the first race. Six, aa pretty two-year-olds as one sees in a day's journey came to the post in the opening event, a five-eighths dash for two-year-olds. They were Matt Storm's bay filly Mystery, H. I. Thorn ton's brown filly Bessie Barnes, Owens Brothers' bay colt Mero, Rickabaugh & Harold's bay filly Santa Ana, Dave Bridges' brown filly Peri and Sherman & Ferguson's black colt Midnight. Peri's win at a half-mile the other day made her the favorite, and she sold in the pools for $10 against $(> for Santa Ana and $0 for the remainder of the field. They were kept at the post three- quar ters of an hour before the flag went down and Midnight jumped to the front at the fall of tlie bunting and got two clear lengths ahead with Mero leading the pack behind him. When they straightened out around the turn the order was Midnight, Mero, Pen, Santa Ana, Bessie Barnes and Mystery a length apart. In the run doWn the stretch Peri was not called on until they got to the gate, where she easily forged ahead and won from Midnight by half a length. Santa Ana beat Mero a head for third place, a length from the leaders. Time 1:03 slow enough. The second contest, and the one in which the interest oi the day centered was the Southern California handicap for all ages, three-quarters of a mile, purse $1,000. The best three-quarter milers in the state were in it, Gladiator, Comet, Dan Murphy, Daisy D, Carmen and Kildrea. Tlie handicap im posed was a satisfactory one, Gladia tor getting 102 pounds, Comet 100, Dan Murphy 105, Daisy D, 121, Car men 107 and Kildare 111. Carmen had to take up 5 pounds overweight, but that did not stop her. When the flag went down Dan Murphy showed in front and ran to the half mile post, a length ahead of the pack, with Carmen leading them. On the turn Carmen joined Dan Murphy and they raced to the head of the stretch together. Kildare joined them there and they came down home shoulder to shoulder, and just inside the distance post Carmen showed her nose in front and with a few cuts of the whip she flashed under the wire half a length in front of Dan Murphy, he the same distance in front of Kildare, the others beaten off. Time 1:14!4. The half mile was run in a rapid clip. Carmen had something left in her at the finish. Her victory makes five starts for the meeting and four straight wins and a second. Two of these were $1,000 purses and the best things of the meeting. The last thing of the day was the 2:27 class trot, purse $1,000, in which there were five starters, Glendine, Bob Mason, Jim Leach, Belle 8., and Danger. On the strength of Glendine's performance in tlie 2:30 class upon the opening day he was made a hot favorite in the pool box, selling at $50 against $11 for the whole field. They went away in the first heat to a straggling start, Glendine getting con siderably the worst of it. Belle B. took the lead as they swung into the turn with Jim Leach second, Danger third, and Glendine fourth. There was no change until they got around on the backstretch, where Glendine took third place. At tlie second turn Jim Leach got up to Belle B's wheel and Glendine crept up to within a length of them. In this position they entered the stretch. Under the press ure Belle B. went off her feet and in a hard drive Glendine heat her out by half a length in Jim Leach was at Glendine's wheel, Danger four lengths back, Bob Mason fifth. Bob Mason made a bad break at the start which killed his chances. After the heat Glendiue was barred in betting and Jim Leach sold against the field at $10, to $6. When they had scored three times, Regester, the driver was fined five dollars for disobedience of starting orders and then, with a few more trials, they got off. Glen dine at once took the lead. Danger got into second place at the turn. Bob Mason went off fast and broke at the turn, and when they got into the backstretch he was in fourth place. Glendine went off in the lead, but at the half Jim Leach had passed Danger and established himself in second place. The order of things was not changed until they got well into the stretch, when Bob Mason came home with a great rush of spead and drove Glendine out in 2 .26%, finishing atja break half a length behind him. The third heat was a sensational one. They got the word to a poor start and Bob Mason got two lengths the worst of it. He was pacing where he left the wire and he got half-way around the turn before Bayless could get him settled. Then he was 16 lengths behind. Glendine went on in front with Jim and Danger see sawing in second place. Just after passing the quarter pole Mason be gan moving at a 2:20 clip, and he was within a length of Danger, who was in third place at the half. On the sec ond turn he passes Danger and entered the stretch two lengths -behind Glendine and a length from Jim Leach. Then all three came down home at a clip that was killing. Bob Mason pass ed Jim Leach and 'began to reach for Glendine, gaining at every stride. Maben plied his whip freely, but do what he could, Bob Mason sustained his flight of speed to the wire and beat Glendine out by a bare head in 2-27 i JmiLeach was third. Danger fourth IBee, B. who went well after the first beat was distanced. Boh Mason tickets were a valuable property before the fourth heat. Glen dine's backers stuck to him, though, and bought him at odds of two to one against the entire field. When they got the word Bob Mason was well in his stride and went off in the lead, At the quarter pole he was half a length to the good of Glendine and at the half there was a length of daylight between them. As they swung into the second turn Glend ine began toclose up, and when they got to the head of the stretch he was two lengths in front and the race was over. Maben rustled Glendine all down the stretch and landed him under the wire in 2:23>0', the fastest heat trotted on the track this season. summaries.

Some New York Stories Denounced as Newspaper Lies. A Family Telegraph Company and How It Operates in Time of War—A Spicy Letter from Bonilla. El Paso (Texas). Aug. 7.—[By the Associated Press.] New York papers reached here today containing inter views with Minister Cruse and Consul General Baiz in regard to interrupted communication between Secretary Blame and Minister Mizner at Guate mala. The New York officials of that government charge that the only wires now used are monopolized by the Bou illa family who have a news agency with one member of tbe family at El Paso, Texas. The Times here pub lished this morning the interview from the New York Star and in its issue to morrow will appear the following an swer from Bonilla. El Paso, (Texas.) Aug. 7. 1890. To the Editor of the Times— Mucn Es teemed Friend: I was surprised to find in your issue today a clipping from the New York Star wherein the Guatemalan minister Cruse and Con sul General Baiz attack my family and the telegraphic agency con ducted by myself and brothers who reside at thecapitalof Guatemala. In answer 1 begin by saying that as our telegraphic business is not participated in by my father nothing should be said of him. In regard to the representa tions and complaints made by Minister Cruse and Consul Baiz I am in a posi tion to say that they lie and shall have thelpleasure of having this fact come before the world as soon as Mr. Blame, the Mexican minister and Mr. Mizner terminated their investigations. All tbey have said to the Star is a tissue of falsehoods and would bring the blush to the face of a gentleman. Mr. Cruse says he was indignant to learn of a syndicate that monopolized tbe tele graphic communication with tbe seat of war and that the syndicate consisted of tbe Bonilla family. Mr. Cruse lies when be says my father is connected with our business. He also lies when he says one of my brothers is stationed at tbe Llberatad part of Salvador and tbe only instance wherein he does not lie is in locating one of tbe brothers here with offices in Paso del Norte and El Paso Tex., The Great and Overshadowing CLEARANCE SALE OF THE GOES FAST AND APACE.

CORNER SPRING AND TEMPLE STS. -*isB A YEARIt- Buys the Daily Herald and *2 the Weekly Hbbald. IT IS NEWSY AND CLEAN. FIVE CENTS. the writer of thia who hereby de nounces him as a liar as be deserves. The statement tbat tbe Bonilla agency had monopolized the Mexican Central has provoked laughter here abouts. The Bonilla agency has never sent out a line of news to any newspa per, and Cruse lies when he so states. In regard to the last charge, of inter cepting telegrams, I will say that a few days ago the New York Star said tbat it was strange that Mr. Blaina oould not communicate by cable with Guatemala and tbat it was unusually strange tbat Mr. Blame had heard from Mr. Mizner at Guatemala by an other line (the Bonilla agency.) This proves that Cruse has lied, for Mizner's messages through the Bonilla agency always reached Blame while the lattor's messages to Minzer by cable failed to reach their destina tion. The reason for this is plain. La Libertad, through which tbe cable reaches Guatemala, is in Salvador and since June 22d communication through thatpointhas been stopped. The cable company knowing this has failed to refuse messages for Guatemala. Oar agency has promptly dispatched ell telegrams. Even yesterday the Bonilla agency transmitted over two hundred words from Mizner to Blame. If we had ever intercepted their telegrams we would not be further trusted with them. We have no monopoly; any person or persons can engage in the business we carry on. In fact there is now here, in El Paso, Juda Rodrigues Casti dejon the secretary of tbe Guatemalan legation at the City of Mexico, who is transmitting the official messages of bis government. For two years our agency has bandied telegrams for both Cruse and Baiz and their governments. In fact not eight hours ago, I had in my hand messages for both of them. The fact is tbey have patronized our service because it is efficient, prompt and cheap. We have but two connecting offices in tbe United States, while the cable has six before reaching Galveston. In regard to the charge that we hare refused the Associated Press our news, it is answered by the simple statement that we have not dealt in news, but we would be happy to serve them as soon as peace is restored in Central America. Your obedient servant, Jose Diez De Bonilla. A College Burned.
