BEYOND THE ROCKIES Another Bank Failure in Philadelphia. Bonds Repudiated by Missouri Counties. Usurper Bulkley's Answer to the Quo Warranto Proceedings. A Rich Widow Disposes of Her Wealth So as to Clip the Wings of a Wayward Son. Associated Press Dispatches. Philadelphia, May B.—The Spring Garden National bank closed its doors at 11 o'clock today, by order of National Bank Examiner Drew. The news of the closing spread rap idly, and a large crowd soon collected, but admittance was denied to all. Pres ident Kennedy sent out the following note: "It was this morning decided to place the bank in the hands of the na tional bank examiner. This was forced upon us, principally by the large with drawal of deposits during the financial stringency last September, and the con tinued dullness of business since. To meet these demands on our reserves, it was found impossible to realize rapidly on the assets. We hope the suspension will be only temporary." But little information as to the bank's real position could be learned, as the officials, directors and Examiner Drew were in consultation and could not be seen. Among the crowd of stockholders and depositors, who gathered on the street in front of the bank, a strong feeling prevailed that the closing of the bank would prove but temporary, and that they would recover their money. The Pennsylvania Safe Deposit and Trust company, which has its office in the Spring Garden National bank build ing, made an assignment this afternoon. The Trust company is really a part of the bank, but is said to be solvent, the assignment being simply for protection against a run. The capital stock of the bank is $750,000, fully paid in, and by its February statement the reserve fund amounted in round figures to $150,000. The bank's line of deposits amounted to about $2,000,000, and the city of Phil adelphia, which has $400,000 locked up in the broken Keystone bank, again suffers to the extent of $154,000. When the run took place on the Keystone bank, last winter, a small run was also made on the Spring Gar den bank, but the bank met it without difficulty. Outside bank officials were not surprised at the failure today. They said it had been for some time in a weak condition, and that in the inner financial circles of the city, it was known that unless the bank received aid from some influential quarter, it would get into trouble. BOND TROUBLES. Two Missouri Counties Refuge to Pay Their Obligations. Kansas City, May 8. —There is trouble in the execution of the recent judgments in the bond cases against Cass and St. Clair counties. It grows out of the re fusal of the judges of the county court to levy taxes for the payment of these judgments. The judges of each county announced their determination to go to jail rather than order a tax on the people. There are two judgments against St. Clair county, one in favor of B. D. Stewart, and the other in favor of the Ninth National bank, New York, aggre gating over $100,000. When Dep uty Marshal Oechsby served the papers on the judges yesterday, they told him they would never order the tax; that they had been elected un der a promise to the people never to levy a tax for the payment of these bonds, and that they were not only opposed to it, but were afraid to. The condition of affairs in Cass county is even more des perate. A judgment was rendered some time ago in favor of Albert Parker, a capitalist of San Diego, Cal., for about $100,000. A mandamus ordering a levy of taxes was granted by the court and disregarded. Three judges were arrested and gave bonds in the sum of $1000 each to appear before the court in Kansas City the second Monday in June. The bonds are railroad bonds, and issued by the counties twenty years ago. USURPER BULKLEY. Bis Answer to the Quo Warranto Pro ceedings Against Him. Nkw Haven, Conn., May 8. —Attorney Case, acting for Governor Bulkley and Lieutenant-Governor Merwin,,filed an answer to the quo warranto proceedings brought by Morris and Alsop, in the su perior court, this morning. Governor Bulkley claims that he, and no other person, is the true and lawful governor of Connecticut; that the general assem bly of Connecticut, at its January ses sion of 1889, by joint ballot, elected him to begovernor"foi two years, and until his successor has duly qualified. He still acts as governor, because no successor has yet been chosen. He states that Morris did not have a majority over all, and on account of manifest mistakes in the returns, it was impossible to tell who, if any one, had been legally chosen governor. Concluding, Bulkley denies that he usurps the office, and says he uses said office by warrant and author ity of the law, and asks to be dismissed of and from the things charged upon him in the information. Merwin's an swer is the same. A WIDOW'S WILL. Mrs. Osborn's Wealth Placed Out of the lteacli of Her Son. New Yobk, May B.—The will of Mrs. Miriam A.Osborn, widow of Ohas.Osborn, stock broker,was filed for probate today. She places all her son Howell's share safely out ol the reach of any wife who has been a professional actress, or any children of such marriage. She seeks to establish the "Miriam A. Osborn Memorial Home association," and makes a bequest to Yale college of $150,000, for a memorial to her husband. Other charatiable bequests are made. Howell Osborn does not get $1, absolutely. A WIDOW'S MITE. JL Scoundrelly Lawyer Tries to Make Way With It. Ashland, Ore., May B.—A warrant was issued this afternoon and telegraph ed to th.3 sheriff of Douglass county, at Roseburg, for the arrest of Luther L. Barthenshaw, a lawyer who has had his shingle out in Ashland for a year or two past. Barthenshaw solicited the collec tion of an insurance policy for $1200, for Mary J. Moore, an aged widow, whose son died several months ago, and Wednesday collected the amount of the policy, through Jackson & Co.'s bank, at Medford. Last evening, he sent Mrs. Moore $600, spy ing he had not collected the balance and that he was going away for a few days and would collect it on his return. Sus picion was aroused,which led to the dis covery that he had collected the full amount through the Medford bank, and had taken a train for the nrtrth. It was learned by telegraph that he had left the train at Koseburg, and the sheriff of Douglass county was notified, who ar rested him, as stated above, on the charge of embezzlement. Deputy Sher iff Taylor went to Roseburg tonight to bring him back. V.M.C.A. DOINGS. Proceedings of the International Conven tion at Kansas City. Kansas Cmty Mo., May B.—The Young Men's Christian Association con vention today decided on Indianapolis as the place to hold the next conven tion. A lengthy report from the internation al committee was read. Its recommen- dations, for the observation of the second Sabbath in November as a day of praise and thanksgiving, for an appropriation ot $75,000 yearly for international work, and other things, were approved. Subscriptions were called for, and in a few minutes $50,000 was subscribed for international work. Mr. March, of Denver, made a state ment that he understood that the Port land test for membership had been mod ified in India. This brought out a lengthy discussion, and several dele gates wanted to denounce the eastern brothers for making the change. A resolution was finally adopted, however, simply stating that the test of active membership in foreign associations be the same as the Portland test, under which the American associations are organized.

A cablegram has been received from the American consul at Florence, Italy, at the office of W. W. Jacques, Boston, stating that the reported mobbing of Jacques and family was not so serious as at first supposed. Jacques and fam ily were out riding, and happening to drive through a street were arrests were being made, were hit by stones thrown at the arresting party. A cablegram has been received in the Latin department of the world's Colum bian exposition, from Lieutenant Schri ven, commissioner to Central America, as follows: "Costa Rica has given as surances of hearty co-operation. _ The government will erect its own building at Chicago and appoint five commission ers.

At a meeting of the stockholders of the Bay State Shoe Fastening company, at Nashua, N. H., serious charges were made against the management, and the officers were ousted from their positions. For three years the company paid 10 per cent, dividends, but it is alleged that a recent examination of the books of the concern showed that every cent of it came out of money paid in as capital stock. These books show over $200,000 spent, of which no trace can be found of $160,000. At Milwaukee, Wis., a settlement of the stonecutters'strike has been effected, and thiß is probably the beginning of the end of the trouble in the building trades in that city.

The wages of competent journeymen are fixed at $4 per day. Heavy Karthquake. Ban Rafael, Cal., May B.—This even ing, at eight minutes past 6 o'clock, a heavy earthquake shock was felt here.

Whole Mountain Sides Covered With Water—Melting Snow Causing an Over flow of Unprecedented Proportions. Santa Fk, N. M., May B.—"Mountains of water," is the way the court officers who have just returned from Tierra Amerillas put it in speaking of what they saw on the way. They say thai the half has not been told of the flood that must soon sweep down the Rio Grande. At Cumbress Hill, Colorado, the water now stands up beside the Denver and Rio Grande station house, six feet deep, and thence it extends for miles, covering the whole range as far as Toltec Gorge, and ranging in depth from four to twenty-tive feet. All the streams are running bank full. The Chama, Rio Brazos, Wolf Creek and tributaries are rushing streams. In places it is said whole mountain sides are covered with water, trickling out from under the snow on top, and spread ing over the face of the decline in every direction. Thus 'far the weather has continued cool in that region; hence the floods that have passed do not begin to indicate what may follow. At Val verde, above San Marcial, much land is under water, and there is also trouble in the Lajora bottoms. A TOTAL WRECK. The Steamer Premier Lost Off the Coast of Alaska. San Francisco, May 8. —A dispatch to the merchants' exchange from Port An geles says the steamer St. Paul has ar rived, bringing word that the Premier was wrecked off the coast of Alaska, April 6th. The Premier left here for Alaska last February, under charter to the Alaska Improvement company, to move a cannery from Oregon to Bering sea. Whether she was lost while on her way to Bering sea, or on her way back, is not known. The captain made his way to Port Townsend and simply tele graphed the fact that the vessel is a total wreck. The Premier was built in Port Ludlow, in 1876, and was of 306 tons net burden. She was 130 feet long, 31 feet 7 inches broad, and 14 feet 4 inches deep. A DEAKTU OF SEAMEN. The United States in Sore Straits for Competent Sailors. Washington, May 8. —The navy de partment is still in sore straits to find able seamen enough to man our ships. Nearly all the recruits the law allovrs have been taken on, and yet there are not enough men to go around. The United States steamer Lancaster, in California, is ready to go to China, but she is short of her complement of men by at least eighty. The monitor Mul tonomah, at New York, is ready to go into commission, but there are no sailors to man her. It is said at the navy department that there must be a pro rata scaling down of the complements of all our ships, at least until congress meets and enlarges the force. The White, the squadron, now at Norfolk, will be the first to feel the reduction, and it is understood that the Chicago will lose seventy and the Boston and Atlanta sixty men each. The Transit of Mercury. Washington, D. C, May B.—General instructions to observers respecting the transit of mercury Saturday, have been issued from the naval observatory, as follows: The attention of astronomical observers is invited to the transit of Mercury over the disk of the sun, which will occur May 9, 1891, and will be visi ble throughout the United States. Its accurate observation is of great import ance. Every effort should therefore be made to have it carefully observed by all who possess the necessary equipment. Ihe naval observatory will be glad to receive observations of the transit from as many stations as possible. Forest Fires in Wisconsin. Ashland, Wis., May 8. —The city is enveloped in dense smoke from the sur rounding forest fires. The fire depart ment has been busy all day in the out skirts of the city fighting the flames.

The special committee appointed on the previous Friday reported themselves opposed to holding any entertainment at the present time. The same com mittee reported that the pavilion could be obtained for a reception to those en gaged in the Chicago exhibit, for a merely nominal consideration. The" report was discussed and the members in general favored the j holding of a reception, though they differed as to where and how the reception should be conducted. Mr. E. W. Jones, MayorJHazard Jand others spoke. The secretary was re quested to read the financial report of the chamber, that it might be seen how much money the treasury contained to hold the reception with. The report showed receipts of $1167.50, expendi tures of $499.81, and a balance in the bank of $260.31, with outstanding bills to the extent of $1700 remaining unpaid. Mr. Hughes moved that a committee, with Mayor Hazard as chairman, be ap pointed to arrange for the reception to the Chicago citrus fair workers. Colonel H. G. Otis spoke against the reception if it was to increase the debt. In his opinion the thanks of the cham ber would be an ample reward to these men, as the success of the citrus fair de pended more on the people and papers back of the scheme than upon the men in charge. Mr. Lee thought the idea of the re ception was to arouse enthusiasm, give the people of Los Angeles a chance to learn what had been done in Chicago, and increase the membership of the chamber. On motion of Mayor Hazard the for mer motion was amended to the effect that the reception should cost the chamber nothing. Major Jones introduced a resolution thanking the railroad companies for their assistance in the orange carnival, and particularly to Messrs. Wade, Hynes, Besmer, Henderson and Bleek man, of the Santa Fe, and Messrs. Crawley, Hewitt, Saylor, Muir and Hamilton of the Southern Pacific. On motion of Colonel H. G. Otis, the resolution was unanimously adopted. On motion of Major Jones, the thanks of the chamber was extended to the press of Southern California for sub stantial aid given the same enterprise. On motion of Mayor Hazard, a bill for $15 for flowers for the senatorial dinner at the Westminster was allowed. The acting secretary reported a com* munication from the trans-Mississippi commercial congress,the object of which is the consideration of various import ant questions. The congress is to be held in Galvestion on the 19th. On mo tion, the president was empowered to appoint the necessary delegates from the chamber of commerce. The president appointed H. T. Hazard, G. R. Shatto, E. W. Jones, H. Dcnker, C. F. A. Last, Will iam E. Hughes, William McLean, 11. Bohrman, Joseph Mesmer, J. R. Mathews, A. D. EUis, S. M. White, William Niles, J. B. Lankershim and H. W.

The committee consists of Mayor Hazard. R. M. Widnev, Dr. MacGowan. W. W. Howard and L. E. Mosher. Col. Otis moved that each member be eoneitituted a committeo of one to fetch in one new member each at the next meeting. The motion was carried, and the secretary instructed to notify the absent members of what was expected of them, and Bupply them with member ship application blanks. This matter being settled, Judge R. M. Widnev was called upon for an account of his visit to the commercial congress recently held at Kansas City. He responded with an outline of the work accomplished by the four-day ses sion of the congress, and the work that was proposed and discussed at that great gathering. Judge Anderson referred to the recent advance in freight and passen ger rates made by the railroads, and moved that the directors be instructed to inquire as to the probable efTect of this action by the railroad upon the commerce of Southern California. The motion carried. Adjourned. FIGHTING M'COOK. He Did Not Need Any Orders From Washington. Editors Herald :—ln the reported in terview with me as published in your paper of this date, your news gatherer has unintentionally made one error which I desire to have corrected. I never met General McCook, and have not the honor or pleasure of his per sonal acquaintance. Ido know him by reputation, and feeling that the neces sity might arise when the military power of the government would be nec essary to enable our marshal to main tain his position in seizing the Itata, I requested a friend of his to go with rue and introduce me to General McCook. We found him absent, much to ray dis appointment, but in conversation with Captain Bailey I found that all my pos sible wants had already been anticipated by General McCook. On thefaay beloie he had instructed the officer in com mond at San Diego, to render to Marshal Gard every assistance he might require. I asked no order from Washington fo" any military assistance. I did ask for the Charleston, but not for land forces. I, knew that General McCook had assumed the command of this de partment, and his reputation did not leave a doubt in my mind but that he would readily assume all the responsi bilities of his position. I wanted to know him personally, and for that rea son I called at his headquarters, and was more than gratified to learn that all I could hope from any military source had by his toresight been already pro vided for. Yours truly, May Bth. A. Bkunson. [The reporter who interviewed Judge Brunson did make the error referred to. The judge had just spoken of telegraph ing to Washington for the use of the Charleston in pursuing the Itata, and immediately after referred to General McCook's action, and in the haste of making notes the two incidents were mixed.J SUSPECTED POISONING. The Sudden Death Yesterday of Maggie Fingeres. Yesterday morning a colored woman named Fingeres died under very sus picious circumstances at the Buena Vista house on New High street. She showed all the symptoms of having been poisoned, and the coroner was accord ingly notified. The woman's husband is a cook at the St. Elmo hotel, lie says that for twenty-four hours before her death, his wife had complained of severe pains in her breast and shoul ders. Dr. Choate was called just before her death, but nothing that he could do appeared to help her. The woman was formerly an inmate of Brown's dance house at San Pedro, and the reason of her being at home now was that she might testify in a San Pedro arson case, which will be tried booh in the superior court here. It is suspected by her friends that she was poisoned. A post mortem was held yesterday, and the result of that, to gether with other facts, will be brought out at the inquest, which is set for to day at 2 p.m. THEY CAN WED.
