THEY ALL TOLD US SO
Comments on the New Or
leans Grand Jury Report.
No Apparent Surprise Created
by Its Findings.

pressions of the Matter.
All Shades of Opinion Expressed by the
Public Press—ltalians Think It
an Outrage.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington*, May o.—The report of
the New Orleans grand jury, upon the
killing of the Italians, was a fruitful
theme for discussion among the people
at the department of state today. It
may be said the finding of the grand
jury excited no surprise, for some such
conclusion of the case was expected.
The attempt to palliate the infraction of
the law, by offsetting alleged attempts
at jury-fixing, is deprecated by the legal
minds of the department, but there is a
well defined opinion, on the whole, that
the outcome of the case will be bene
ficial in its effects upon the turbulent
foreign elements in the United States,
inasmuch as it will make clear to thorn
the fact that they cannot rely upon
treaties to escape responsibility to the
great republic for their unlawful acts.
The report of the grand jury will, it is
expected, reach Secretary Blame in the
course of time, and figure in official cor
respondence between the United States
and Italy. There is reason to believe
that in some details it differs from the
report made to the department of justice
by District Attorney Grant, and notably '
in the matter of the nationality of the
victims. The grand jury's report found
that eight of them were naturalized
American citizens, and that one had de
clared his intention to become natural
ized. District Attorney Grant, it is be
lieved, found one of the victims of Ital
ian nationality, but he was an escaped
convict, and that another's nationality
was so doubtful as to make it unsafe to
hazard an opinion. So, at any rate, the
Italian complaint will be narrowed down
to at least two persons.
Although the United States has no
naturalization treaty with Italy, the
last named nation invariably, through
comity, recognized our naturalized citi
zens as free from amenability to their
native government. When the case of
these two victims is considered, the
question will immediately arise, Were
the treacy stipulations with Italy
broken? This question is likely to
figure in the correspondence " be
tween the two governments, as i
soon as ths Italian government (
is ready to fall, reasonably, into the |
usual diplomatic method of treating
a subject respecting which they '
took issue with another nation. Unless '
it appears clearly that the treaty has 1
been violated, the Italian case falls to <
the ground, and the leading diplomatic
minds of the state department maintain
that this fact cannot be made to appear.
In Secretary Blame's absence there has 1
been no forward move in the corre- '
spondence.
It is learned that Porter, our minister
at Rome, applied to the department of
state for a leave qf absence before the
New Orleans affair happened. He has
been constantly on duty since March,
1889, more than two years. Moreover
the sickly season is approaching in
Rome, so it is fairly probable that his
request will be granted, as, indeed,
would already have been the case had
not the trouble reached such an acute
phase.
Attorney-General Miller said he had
read the report of the grand jury, but
declined absolutely to express any opin
ion in regard to it, or to discuss any of
its features.
Secretary Foster, when asked his
opinion on the report, said he really had
not had time to read it, and therefore
was not in a position to express an
opinion regarding it.
Chicago, May 0. —Following are some
editorial comments on the New Orleans
grand jury report:
New York Evening Post: It is con
fessed by competent authority that the
machinery of criminal justice has com
pletely broken down the state of Louisi
ana, and that crimes of any magnitude
have to be punished by a revolutionary
tribunal. ... It throws some light
on the working of the jury system,
which the people of other cities, partic
ularly New York, will do well to digest.
New York Herald: It is no time to
sermonize about mob violence. An up
rising of the people is not an outbreak
of a mob. The disease called for the
cure, and justilies the means.
Minneapolis Tribune : The grand jury
has published a declaration that New
Orleans is ruled by a detective agency
on one side, or a mob on the other; that
the very forms of law are disregarded by
those whose sworn duty it is to uphold
its m ijesty, the grand jurors themselves,
and that anarchy reigns in New Orleans.
Minneapolis Journal; Public opinion
will hardly endorse the omission of the
grand jury to formally indict the leaders
of the lynching party, or as many of the
party as were known. It would have
been much more to the credit of the
community had this been done.
Cincinnati Times-Star: We believe
it will be the common opinion that far
from showing any grave weakness oi de
fect in our social or political system, the !
episode and outcome demonstrates the 1
strength and efficiency of popular gov- (
ernment in America. 1
The New Orleans States: "The Peo- i
pie" did it; and no grand jury could de- '
vise a way to indict "The People." i
New Orleans Times-Democrat: The 1
grand jury's return will meet theapprov- J
al of the entire country .The case lias been }
tried before the bar'of public opinion, 1
and the finding of "well done" has long t
since been returned to the men whose c
act suppressed the Malia, and gave c
warning to the criminals of Phnope that
they would find no welcome in this
country.
Washington Post: The picture which v
the leport presents of jury methods at y
New Orleans indicates that while it may t
have been necessary to strike terror to a c
dangerous class of the community, there c
are still other and equally dangerous s
elements that would seem to require he- t
roic treatment.
Philadelphia Telegraph : The people
of this country, thanks to tbe insolent
course of the Italian government, will s
not seriously concern themselves with g
the question whether a respectable mob r
of the "best citizens" are "brought to ii
-punishment;" but they are mightily s
interested in the question whether the t
greatest city in the south is to be a if
place where no human life ia safe; where
the government may be looked to in
vain for the exercise of legitimate and
needful authority.
Toledo Blade : The report shows that
the courts have been for yenrs more or
less under outside control, aud justice
in any case jn which these outsiders
might he interested was not to be ex
pected. The citizens are blaineable that
they did not years ago correct this mon
strous condition of affairs.
London, May 0. —The St. James Ga
zette, commenting on the finding of the
'New Orleans grand jury, in the lynch
ing case, says : The jury has done just
what might have been expected, and
its findings possess a polemical interest
which, it may be feared, the Marquis
Di Rudini will not duly appreciate. If
Secretary Blame sticks to his guns and
insists on the constitutional authority
pronounced, on the issue that the con
stitution provided no machinery for the
government's going behind thedecision
of the New Orleans jury, his position
will be still more unsatisfactory to Italy
than it was at the beginning.
New York, May 6. —Speaking of the
result of the deliberations of the New
Orleans grand jury, Editor Barsottu, of
II Piogresso, today remarked: "It ia
what we thought would be done. It is
an outrage that these men should es
cape, for what they have done." Among
the Italian residents the same sentiment
is expressed.
The Inter-Ocean Sold.
Chicago, May 6.---It is announced
this evening that H. H. Kolilsaat, a
well-known merchant of this city, haa
become the proprietor of a controlling
interest in the Inter-Ocean. The entire
stock of the corporation is now owned
by Mr. Kohlsaat, William Perm Nixon
and his brother, and other members of
the Inter-Ocean staff. There is" to he no
change in the personnel of the paper or
its editorial conduct. The capital stock
of the corporation will be increased, and
all the money needed to push the paper
forward to the highest success will be
put into the business.
IN THE SOUND REGION.
THE PRESIDENT IN THE STATE OF
WASHINGTON.
He Visits Tacoma and Seattle—Rain In
terferes With the Demonstrations—A
Ride on Pugst Sound.
Tacoma, Wash., May t>. —President
Harrison nnd party entered the state of
Washington at an early hour this morn
ing, in a driving rainstorm. This inter
fered materially with the arrangements
for his reception at various places along
the road. It was 8 o'clock when the
presidential special reached Tacoma,
and the rain seemed to be coming down
harder than ever. The party, however,
were given a royal reception. They
were met at the statiou by the gover
nor and the mayor of the city, and a
committee of citizens escorted the party
to the Gross block, where formal ad
dresses of welcome were delivered. The
line of march and the reviewing stand
were handsomely and appropriately dec
orated.
In the course of his response to the
addresses of welcome, the president
said: "I would like to see the prows of
some great steamship line, carrying the
American flag, entering the ports of

Puget Bound. I believe we have come
to the time in our development as a peo
ple, when we must step forward with
bold progress or we will loce the ad
vantage we have already attained. We
have within ourselves resources, and a
market of which the world is envious.
We have been content in years gone by
to allow other nations to do
the carrying trade of the world;
We have been content to see the mar
kets of the American republics, lying
south of us, controlled by European
nations. I think the period of discon
tent with these things has now come to
our people. The time is auspicious for
tbe enlargement of our commerce with
these friendly republics. The time is
propitious for re-establishing on the sea
the American merchant marine that
shall do its share of the carrying trade
of the world."
Seattle, May (i. —At Tacoma the
president was met by the mayor and a
committee of citizens of this "place, who
took him aboard the steamer City of
Seattle and escorted him to this city.
An informal reception was held on the
steamer.
The ride on the steamer from Tacoma
to Seattle was devoted chiefly to an in
formal enjoyment of the trip and lunch
eon. Elliott bay was covered with ves
sels and boats of every description, i
whose whistling,as the steamer bearing i
the president approached the city, was
deafening. A large and enthusiastic i
crowd filled every available place along i
the wharves; the streets were so i
toronged that it was almost impossible )
for the carriages to be drawn through to I
tlie cable cars which were to take the
party out to Lake Washington. The
weather cleared off, somewhat in the
afternoon. The city was gaily decorated
with the national colors and evergreens.
While on board the steamer, Mayor
White made a brief address of welcome,
to which the president responded as
follows : "Mr. Mayor: laccept with great
gratification your words of welcome in
behalf of the citizens of Seattle. It will
give me great pleasure to contrast my
observation of your state in 1886 with
what I shall see today. I have not lost
sight of the progress of Seattle, but have
through friends been advised of the
marvelous developments which you
have made, and how you have
repeated in the substantial character
of your edifices the story of the Chicago
fire. Coming out of what seemed a dis
aster, with increased significance, and
finding in it really an advantage. I will
defer until I am in the presence of your
people, further acknowledgement of
your courtesies, and now only thank
you, as you are repeating here what we
have observed on our whole trip, the
unification of our people; the absolute
aneness of our sentiment in devotion to
jur institutions and our flag."
Jealous of Citizenship.
Lincoln, Neb., May 6. —Boyd, who

Millions of Grasshoppers.
Sacramento, Cal., May 6. —A Bee
ipecial from Folsom says: Millions of

Golden State.
Encouraging Reports From
Nearly Every County.
Rain Helps Out the Grain In the
Northern Valleys.
A l ittle More Afoisturo Needed in the
San Joaquin Valley—ltrljrlit Pros
pects for Farmers.
Associated Press DisDatches.
' San Francisco, May C—Crop reports
from all over the state show that grain
is in good condition in most places, and
fruit doing well nearly everywhere.
The following places report prospects
flattering, and above the average : Red
ding, Sonora, Rohncrville, Williams,
Milton, Downieville, San Andreas, Cal
ieloga, Napa, Palermo, Ventura, Mendo
cino, Bakersfield, St. Helena, Gilroy and
Nicolaus. Crops are below the average
at the following places: Goshen, Tur
lcck, Bethany, Biggs, lone and Madera.
Saunas, Cal., May 6.-The outlook
for the grain crop here is immense. The
grain is all headed out and the weather
could not he better. The yield of grain
and hay will be one-third more than in
the last ten years.
Merced, Cal., May G. —Prospects are
good for over an average crop all over
Merced county.
TJktah, May G.—The crop outlook in
this section of the county is the very
best. Late rains have started graii*
growing finely. Immense crops of
cereals will be raised. The large prune
orchards in this vicinity will produce
the largest crop ever known.
Ci-ovekdai.e, Cal., May (>.—The win
ter season was most favorable. There
is hardly an acre of land in this vicinity
that has not some crop. Growing grain
is standing magnificently. The fruit
crop is also just as encouraging. Grapes
are coming out in a most promising
manner. A great number of orange
trees are heavily in bloom.
' Visalia, Cal., May G.—The grain out
look for Tulare county is very slim. The
foothill belt will produce'only half a
crop ; south of the Tule river, only hay ;
west of the railroad and south of Tulare
city, nothing. The irrigated districts
will have fair crops.
Marysvii.ue, Cal., May G.—Bain be
gan falling about midnight. Farmers
and fruit growers are greatly pleased.
Indications for n big grain crop are not as
good as a month ago, but the rain will
greatly improve it.
Modesto, Cal., May 6.—The crop out
look in Stanislaus county is not so prom
ising as two weeks ago, owing to con
tinued dry weather and north winds.
Growing grain is now in need of rain,
and what promised to be the biggest
yield in the history of the county "will
be reduced greatly ii rain does not come
soon. The acreage is the largest ever
sown.
Gilroy, Cal., May 6.—Crop prospects
in this valley are exceptionally good,
possibly better than the preceding year.
Wheat and barley are heading out re
markably well.
Hollister, Cal., May 6. —The present
season has been an exceptionally line
one for the farmers in this county" The
rains came in such a manner that an
unusually large acreage was sown. From
all sections of the county a large harvest
is practically assured.
Colusa, Cal., May 6.—A light rain last
night benefited late sown grain. There
is some complaint of a little foul grain
on the plains, but generally speaking 1
the outlook was never better since the
bonanza year of '80, when nine million 1
bushels was the output.
Cohnino, Cal., May 6. —There was a 1
fine rain last night; fifty-five hundredths 1
}f an inch fell. This rain insures '
irops, enabling the farmers to finish '
plowing. Crops look fine. Much land *
s setting for vineyards and orchards. ' E
Santa Rosa, Cal., May G. —Rain be
»an falling here yesterday afternoon at 5
j'clock, and continued through the
light. It was one the heaviest storms
)t the season,and farmers say it is worth
;housands of dollars to the country.
The outlook for grain, fruit and every
variety of product is better than for
.•ears before.
Winters, Cal., May G.—lt began rain
ng last night; forty hundredths of an
nch fell, making a total of 53.21 for the
ieason. No damage was done, although
ome hay was cut.
Auburn, Cal., May 6.—lt commenced
aining during the night, and a light
am continues. It ia very welcome, but
nay affect the berry and cherry busi
iess.
San Francisco, May 6.—Rain which
>egan falling about (i o'clock l ist even
ing, continued at intervals this morn
ing.
Ventura, Cal., May6.—The prospects
of Ventura county for general crops are
excellent. Barley will soon be ready for
harvest, and a careful estimate places
the surplus at 200,000 sacks. A large
acreage is being planted to beans and
everything is favorable for a good yield.
Fruits of all kinds promise well. Apri
cots show excellent signs, on the whole,
and the trees in some sections are
loaded.
San Bernardino, May.6.—More acres
have been sown to grain this season in
San Bernardino county than ever before;
mostly barley. The rainfall has been
above the average, and timely,and most
of the barley crop will make good grain.
Some will be cut for hay, a little of
which will be light yield. The grain
crop on the average will be the bestever
raised in this county. Prospects are
good for a very large ami line deciduous
and citrus fruit crop this coming season.
San Luis Obispo, May 6. —A phenom
enal grain yield is probable in this
county this year. It may reach three
times the heaviest previous production.
The acreage sown is at lease double, and
on account of the very favorable charac
ter of the season, and the full and
fortunately distributed rainfall, the ver
dict from all sections is that crops have
never looked half as well. With fair
prices it will be a grandly successful
year for our farmers.
Y. M. C. A. WORK.
The Twenty-Ninth International Conven
tion at Kansas City.
Kansas City, Mo., May o.— The twen
ty-ninth international convention of the
Young Men's Christian Association met
in this city this morning. Permanent
organization was effected by the election
of the following officers: Thomas H.
McPheeters, of St. Louis, president;
Herbert H. Clark, of Michigan, secre
tary, and William H. Meade, of Cali-
fornia, and William H. Mcßride, assist
ant secretaries.
The report of the international com
mittee shows that the association owns
buildings and real estate to the value of
over $12,250,000, the total indebtedness
being less than 12,500,000.
Great interest was manifested in that
part of the report in regard to the exten
sion of the work of the association to
mission fields. On this point the report
considers that its field for work in mis
sion lands is now open, and so far
as it has been attempted the results
seem to establish its value nnd
usefulness. General foreign inissionnry
work, suggested by some of the associa
tions, is looked upon with alarm. Upon
this question the committee consulted
with the Kansas state committee, with
in whose jurisdiction efforts to promote
general missionary work seem to
be most prevalent. It was gen
erally agreed by the committee that
the associations of the country
ought not in a technical and legal
sense, be connected with a general mis
sionary movement. The committee does
not oppose missionary work, but advo
cates every reasonable project looking to
better knowledge of Christian missions,
and securing support for them. It en
courages all young men who exhibit a
willingness to accept work of the church
upon foreign fields.
The report makes many recommenda
tions, among which are: Observance of
the second Sunday in November and the
following week for prayer for associa
tion work ; the establishment of a fund
for the provision of those who having
given their lives to association work,
have become incapacitated to earn a
livelihood.
Indian Lepers.
Sonora, Cal., May u\—A startling dis
covery was made today, near Montezu
ma, by Dr. Shallon. At a Chinese
camp, an Indian boy in an advanced
stage of leprosy was found. He stated
that two Indians in Sonora were afflicted
with the same disease. Thesupervisors
are investigating.

robbery on Sunday night, had stated
that they had got drunk on liquor sold
at the Palace saloon, Old Vienna Buffet

statements of the men and wanted to
know what to do about the matter, as
the other saloon men were complaining
of the actions of these places, and some
thing should be done in the matter.

men as witnesses, and have the matter
settled in the courts. The chief said
that he would do so and the board ad

A LUNATIC'S FREAK.
I Fourteen Hours Up a l ull Poplar Tree,
Then Fell Oil.
_ Santa Rosa, Cal., May C—Great ex
citement prevailed yesterday and last
J night over the presence of a lunatic on
the top of a tall poplar tree. The man's
[ name is Zalezzi, a Swiss, who was
' brought here to be examined and sent to
Napa. He escaped from his friends at
' 12:30 p. m., shinned up the tree and
J took a position on a small limb fifty feet
I from the ground. Every effort was
made to get him down, and thousands
' of people were attracted to the spot.
Ladders were obtained from the fire de
' partment and raised to the tree, but no
one could get near enough to throw a
[ rope around his body. As night ap
proached rain began falling heavily,
1 and the poor fellow kept his perch till
' 4 o'clock this morning, when he fell (o
the ground, fifty feet below, having
i been in the tree fourteen hours. A
] canvas had been stretched below, and
[ that saved his life. His arm and
shoulder were fractured, besides receiv
ing internal injuries.
A BOY INCENDIARY.
He Says His Father Commanded Him to
Commit Arson.
Hou.isteis, Cal., May (i. —The house
of William Kelly was burned last month,
and today Charles Mankins, thirteen
years old, was examined upon the
charge of arson, for having set lire to it.
He had heretofore said that on the day
of the lire he saw a Mexican near the
place. Public opinion fixed on this,
imagining the Mexican ns the guilty
party. The iinding of a pistol
which was believed to have
been destroyed with the house, in
young Mankin's possession, however,
caused his arrest, and upon being ques
tioned he admitted his guilt. Today he
testified that he set fire to the building
because'commanded to do so by his
father, George Mankins, nnd he seems
to think that in obeying his father he
did nothing wrong, lie was held to
answer and his father was arrested. The
father denies that he was connected
with the burning, or knew- anything
about it.
TURNED LOOSE.
Good Work By the Police Goes For
Naught.
There wore a lot of disgusted and
angry policemen about the city, and
especially at police headquarters, yester
day. They wee angry because failed
failed of sustaining a charge against
Lee, Spring and Shaub, the three men
arrested by Officer Vignes, Sunday
night, for robbing old man Carter, on
Ducommun street. The prosecution
had been boastmg of the clearness of its
case, and indeed the average spectator
who listened to the evidence, was of the
opinion that at least two of the defend
ants would be held to answer. But
such was not the case; thejthree were
discharged upon a motion of their attor
ney. A second charge had been preferred
against Lee. together with an outside
party named George Tepanier, and at
9:30 a. m. they were served with war
rants charging them with taking $20
from William Bertram early Sunday
evening, after the return of "the picnic
party from Verdugo. Bertram posi
tively identified one Of the men as the
one who had robbed him, the robbery
having taken place on the Downey ave
nue bridge. This charge was" also
quashed, however, and in the afternoon
both men were released from custody.
Comment was quite free among citi
zens last evening, and the general opin
ion concerning the matter appeared to
be that there was a screw loose some
where, though no one seemed to care to
assume the responsibility of locating it.
LIBRARY TRUSTEES.
