San Francisco, Oct. s.—There was
worne sensational testimony in the pre
liminary examination of tbe actor
Manrice B. Strellinger, for the mnrder
of Policeman Grant, on Saturday last.
Henry Jeransen, who was formerly em
ployed by Strellinger as a gardener,
identified the pistol found near the scene
of the murder as one belonging to Strel
linger. Today Jeransen voluntarily took
the stand and said his testimony given
Saturday waa false, and that he testi
fied then, through fear of the police, to
what they had told him to say. He
said today that he had never seen the
pistol in Strellinger's possession. The
nippers found on Strellinger's wristwere
identified as those belonging to Officer
Grant. The case was postponed for one
week.
THE DONAHOE ROAD.
A Possible Chance ln the Controlling
Power.
San Rafael, Cal., Oct. 5. —A case of
great moment, which may result in a
change in the controlling power of the
Donahue railroad, was heard before
Judge F. M. Angellotti in the superior
court today. The Donahue road
is conceded to be the most
profitable holding of the kind
in this state. It embiaces
the main road from San Francisco to
Ukiah ; the Sonoma branch ; the Dona
hue branch, and the Sebastopol and the
Guerneville branches. The read
traverses a section of about 170 miles of
the most fertiie valleys in the state.
There is no opposition line. The
hearing was on a petition filed
by the creditors of the estate
of the late J. Mervyn Donahue.
The prayer stated that the claims of the
petitioners had been filed and allowed
over a year ago, and that no disposition
was ever shown to settle said claims.
The First National bank, by 8. C. Mur
phy, president, has the largest claim,
amounting to thousands of dollars.
There were also two claims for lesser
sums. After argument by the attorneys,
Judge Angellotti rendered a decision in
favor of the petitioners, holding that it
was the duty of the executors to at once
sell such portion of the estate as would
- «n»£ 1c them to pay tbe creditors. Mr.
Hanlon6n rJShalf of the contestant,
filed an objection ana farther hearing
was continued to Wednesday.
MRS. FAIR'S WILL.
' Charles Fair Spruus; a Sensation When
Ii Wag Offered for Probate.
San Francisco, Oct. s.—The matter of
admitting to probate the will of the late
Mrs. Theresa Fair came up today before
Judge Coffey. Attorney Goodfellow cre
ated a surprise by stating that he repre
sented Charles Fair, who had informed
him that he believed there was in exis
tence a later will than the one offered
for probate. An order to allow him, in
conjunction with the executors of the
estate to examine the box in the Bate de
posit where Mrs. Fair kept her papers,
was made, but no will was found and
the first will was admitted to probate.
R. V. Dey, who managed the property
of Mrs. Fair, said her real estate in this
city was worth $3,000,000; that the
whole estate was worth about $4,000,000.
The will which was admitted to probate
today, leaves Mrs. Oelrichs and Miss
Virginia Fair $1,150,000 and to Chares
Fair and James G. Fair, Jr., $500,000
each.
SAM BERNARDINO NEWS.
The Opposition to the Tax Levy—The
Riverside Case Settled.
San Bernardino, Oct. s.—The
report telegraphed from this city last
week that the railroad companys' and
taxpayers' organization were going to
fight the tax levy, appears to have been
a false one. The tax levy was made by
a unanimous vote of tbe board, and this
«itv will have funds to build a $50,000
jail and $10,000 to put into tbe court
bouse or something else. The county is
E radically unanimous that the court
ouse should be remodeled, but people
differ as to the extent of the improve
ments.
Judge Campbell today rendered a de
cision in the important Riverside case,
in which he declared the spread of water
made by the Riverside Water company
legal, and in accordance with the con
tract between the people and the old
Riverside Land and Water company,
that S. O. Evans and C. N. Felton made
in October, 1884. settles the
last obstacle to progress in the River
side settlement.
The Walla Walla Lyncher*.
San Francisco, Oct. s.—Corporal
Clarence Arnold and Private Charles E.
Trumpower, of troop D, fourth cavalry,
have been taken to the military prison
on Alcatraz island. They were impli
cated in the kilting of A. J. Hunt, who
shot a member of the troop over a
gambling table in Walla Walla. Cor
poral Arnold was in charge of the car
bines, and the charge against him waa
allowing the men to take the guns,
and further for going to the jairand
helping to take Hunt out with intent
to kill him. Trumpower was recognized
as one of the jail-breakers. The sentence
of Arnold was that he be dishororably
discharged and be confined in such place
as the reviewing authority may desig
nate, eight years. Trumpower's term
was five years.
Judge Morrow Seated.
San Francisco, Oct. 5. —Ex-Congress-

recently appointed by President Harri
son to succeed Ogden Hoffman as judge
of the United States district court for

The Cutter Rush Ordered to Return to the
Seal Islands.
San Francisco, Oct. 5.—A Washing
ton special says: Orders were tele
graphed from the treasury department
today for the revenue cutter Rush, now
st San Francisco, to return at once to
the seal islands and remain there until
the last of December. Instructions
were sent to the Rush during the latter
part of August to remain at the seal
islands until further orders, but by
some mistake the orders were not de
livered. The fact that there are many
poaching vessels in Bering sea await
inc an opportunity to take seals is well
known at the treasury department, and
is the cause of the orders sent to tbe
Rush.

CHEAP RATES.
The Thing Most Needed to Secure
Prosperity.
[Commodore Rufus R. Haines has the
following paper in the San Francisco
Wasp of September 19lh:]
"What is the thing most needed to
secure the prosperity of California?"
I answer unhesitatingly: Cheaper—
very cheap—passenger and freight rat«S
between it and all the eastern states of
the Union and the VaßadM. And to my
mind the truth of the assertion is co
very plain that I do not deem it neces
sary to use your maximum of one
thousand words in an argument to prove
it. A few facts, stated in my own
homely way, will make my answer a
self-evident truth.
It needs no multiplying of words to
support the assertion that the market
for our surplus products is far distant,
and that there is no known way of
bringing producer and consumer nearer
each other. A substitute—and the only
one that can suggest itself—is cheaper
fares over the long road that cannot be
shortened.
Our over two score years of occupancy
of California has proven that ye have
little material for the manufacturer or
fuel to generate the power he requires.
But a score of years experimenting has
proven that we have a state unequaled
in the conditions of soil and climate
necessary for the successful cultivation
of grasses, grains, fruits and root crops.
So I deem it time to conclude we should,
in the main, leave manufacturing es
tablishments near the coal and iron
mines and forest and cotton fields, and
grow here the food to sustain them. The
millions of bushels of wheat now being
gathered intojour graneries and the
thousands of carloads of potatoes going
to waste because they cannot pay pres
ent transportation rates to market, are
proofs of our ability as a food-growing
state, and an assurance that we can fill
any order in the line of such productions
on a twelve or even six months' notice.
Rating as a junior '49er, I knew the
foothills and valleys of California before
the plow had furrowed them, and ere it
was "known that anything but the na
tive grasses could be grown outside of
the little enclosures that are known as
tbe Mission gardens. I have been a
witness to the planting and growth of
the orchards and vineyards of El Do
rado, Amador and Placer counties, the
conversion of the barren plains of Fresno
into their present magnificent and the
magic transformation of the once derided
"Cow Counties" of Southern California
into gold-bearing gardens and bowers of
beauty, and I know it only wants the
fact established that our products can be
marketed at a profit tc fill up all our
waste places with an intelligent, con
tented population. The market is at
the end ot a "long haul," and the rail
road dictates the profit—some are un
generous enough to say—pockets it.
That the railroads hold the weal of
the Pacific Coast states in their hands is
patent. And their hitherto policy has
not been favorable to our rapid develop
ment.
I will supplement my testimony and
conclude with an extract from tn»Vi
salia Delta, the leading and oldest jour
nal in the San Joaquin valley. Of the
managers of the railroad, it Bays:
"Like the Apache Indian, their hand
is raised against all mankind."
Again it says:
"Producers in this county are talking
seriously of establishing mule trains for
transporting their dried fruit and other
crops to market. . . . One day this
week a farmer living near Visalia as
sured the editor of thiß paper that it is
his intention later in the season to use
his teams to haul bis produce to San
Francisco."
I leave my case with the jury, asking
your consent to admit a reply to the
query, "Would Lower Rates Pay Cost of
the Service?"

LO THE POOR INDIAN.
Great Forces at Work to
Civilize Him.
Commissioner Morgan's Sug
gestions to Congress.
Radical Reforms in the Indian Policy
Recommended.
The Bed Men Should Not be Treated as
Wards of the Nation but as Sub
jects WiU> Full Rights of
Citizenship.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Oct. B.—The commis
sioner of Indian affairs in his annual re
port says he thinks the great forces now
at work—the allotment of land in sev
eralty, with its accompanying dissolu
tion of tribal relations, and tbe breaking
up the reservations ;'.the destruction of
the agency system ; the acquirement of
citizenship and all that belongs thereto,
independence, privilege and duty;
education which seeks to bring the
rising generation of Indians into right
relationship with the age in which they
live and put into their hands tools by
which they may gain for themselves
food and clothing, and build for them-,
selves homes—will, if allowed to con
tinue undisturbed a reasonable length
of time, accomplish their beneficent
ends. The report discusses, at length,
the political status of the Indians,
tracing the evolution of the present
policy of dealing with the Indians as
wards. After a careful historical survey
the commissioner draws a number of
conclusions. He thinks the time has
come for a declaration by congress to
tho effect that hereafter it will not
recognize Indians aB competent to make
war; that they shall be treated not as
belligerents but as subjects; that the
general government has a right, both
lor its own protection, for the promo
tion of public welfare and for the good
of the Indians, not only to establish
schools in which their children may be
prepared ior citizenship, but also to use
whatever force may be necessary to se
cure to Indian children the benefits of
these institutions.
The commissioner submits that the
time is at hand for the extension over
the Indians of the protection and priv
ileges of our courts.
"1 venture also to suggest," continues
the commissioner, "whether the time
is not at hand for tbe passage of an en
abling act, whereby the five civilized
tribes may form either a territorial or
state government, to be represented on
the floors of congress.
"The time has come when the Pueblo
Indians should be admitted by a special
act of congress to the enjoyment of all
the rights of citizens of the United
States, according to the principles of
the constitution 88 contemplated by the
treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
"The definite determination by the
highest authority of the actual political
status of the Indians is necessary as a
basis of wise legislation, and to tbe sat
isfactory administration of Indian af
fairs." "
A'ter giving an account of the progress
made in the alloting of of lands to the
Indians during the past year, the com
missioner says: "This radical and far
reaching revolution in the Bocial status
of the Indians is making satisfactory
progress. Land in severalty has in it
tho promise and potency of great things,
but only that, in many cases it brings
unutterable woe, and in all it is
liable to leave the Indians worse
off than before."
He further says: "I am not in re
ceipt of enough information, nor indeed
haß sufficient time elapsed to enable me
to judge of the practical results of the
allotment policy. I have seen nothing
during the year, however, to lead me to
change my views as to its ultimate suc
cess. "
Regarding the reduction of the reser
vations which has proceeded with great
rapidity during the year, the report
says: "While it is possible to push this
work too rapidly, perhaps, I do not
hesitate to say that the ultimate de
struction of the entire system of reser
vations is inevitable. There is no place
for it in our present condition of life.
Millions of acreß of Indian lands now
lying absolutely unused are needed as
homes for our rapidly increasing
population, and must be so util
ized. Whatever right and title
the Indians have in them is sub
ject to and must yield to the demands
of civilization. They should be protect
ed in the permanent possession of all
this land that is necessary for their own
support, and whatever is ceded by them
should be paid for at its full market
value. But it cannot be expected under
any circumstances that these reserva
tions can remain intact, hindering the
progress of civilization, requiring an
army to protect them from the encroach
ments oi home-seekers, and maintain
ing a perpetual abode of savagery and
animalism.
The report discusses at length the
subject of Indian education. The en
rollnentof Indian pupils for* the year
ending June 30th was 17,920, an increase
over last year of 1549. The amount of
congressional appropriation for Indian
education available for the year to
come is nearly two and one quarter
million dollars. The commissioner re
gards the education of the Indiana as
tbe only solution of the Indian problem.
Regarding contract schools, the com
missioner recommends the maintenance
of the status quo for the present, but
urges that the appropriation of public
funds for sectarian education is contrary
to the spirit of the constitution ; opposed
to public policy, and ought at an early
day be discontinued. He expresses a
strong appreciation of the missionary
work done among the Indians by the
churches, and thinks the present time
is peculiarly favorable for an increase of
such work.
TBI! HEALTH OF THE ARMY.
Point* from Burgeon-General Suther
land** Annual Report.
Washington, Oct. s.—Surgeon-Gen
eral Sutherland, of the army in his an
nual report, speaks of the efficiency of
the hospital corps, as shown during the
Sioux campaign, and urges an addition
of $6 per month to the pay of privates
in this corps, as an inducement to en
listed men to enter. The gener
al health of the army is better th»n
last year. All the medical officers
who refer to the canteen system, ap
prove it with one exception. Surgeon-
General Sutherland recommends a sys
tematic course of athletic exercises at
each post to improve the physique of
the men, as this does not follow military
drill.

Washington, Oct. 5.-It is said the
president will demand indemnity from
Spain for maltreatment suffered by
American missionaries at the hands of
Spanish priests and officers on the Caro

Remarkable Story uf a Stowaway.
The Londoc Lancet records a remark
able case, which illustrates what human
beings aro driven to do when suffering
the agonies cf starvation. The body of
an Arab was found in the hold of fl ship,
and waa conveyed to tho Seamen's hos
pital, Greenwich, where a postmortem
examination was made by order of the
coroner. The body was much emaciated,
and the following extraordinary list of
materials was found in the intestines:
Twenty trousers buttons, three cog
wheels apparently out of a watch, one
2-inch steel screw bent double, one 1-inch
screw, six pieces of a lock, the biggest
being H inches long and one-half mcli
broad: a circular pieco of brass, several
pieces of iron wire, brass, lead, and
two key tallies on a ring one inch in
length.
The weight of tho articles amounted
to almost half a pound. The unfortunate
man had evidently secreted himself in
the vessel, and had remained undiscov
ered by the crew during the whole of tjie
voyage from some distant port, and liiid
swallowed these articles to relieve the
pangs of hunger,
Peculiar Recesses ln English Churches.
There Is an item that is rarely met
with that would be, probably, a puzzle
to most persons who looked at it with
out a key of explanation as to its use.
This is a tall, long, narrow recess in the

the altar. It is supposed to be intended
for the reception of a processional staff,
too long to be placed with other treas
ures in the aumbrey or elsewhere. An
other square recess has been observed, in
a few instances, near the ground, to the
east of the the use of which has
not been handed down.
There aro at least three churches, too,

The Telegraphers to Confer Today With
the Southern Pacific — San
Diego Humors—News
Notes.
There are indications that the Termi
nal company will soon be ready to make
a proposition about extending their line
to the coal fields of Utah and event
ually to Salt Lake.
General Manager Burnett, of the road,
is credited with having stated that after
his line reaches the coal fields, he will
guarantee to put down all the coal
wanted in Los Angeles and vicinity so
that it could be sold at $6 a ton.
A corporation has been formed re
cently of the same men who are inter
ested in the Terminal road, for the pur
pose of developing the Utah coal mines.
This is a significant straw. The railway
company will want the people to assist
in the extension of the line; if the result
will be coal at $6 a ton, Los Angeles
could afford to build the line and then
make a present of it to the company.
CONFERENCE WITH THE TELEGRAPHERS.
A conference between representatives
of the Order of Railway Telegraphers
and officials of the Southern Pacific
company has been arranged to take
place at Fourth and Townsend streets
on Tuesday, says the San Francisco Call,
and at that time an attempt will be
made to adjust tbe pending difficulties.
The organization is not a very strong
one on this coast, being less than two
months old. The telegraph people
claim that the company is trying to
wipe the order out of existence by dis
charging several of the promoters.
They go so far as to affirm that all
Southern Pacific division superintend
ents have been instructed to dispense
with the services of organized operators
wherever they may be found. Assistant
General Superintendent Pratt, who has
charge of this branch of the service, de
nies that there is any intention on the
part of the company to interfere with
the telegraphers as an organization.
"It is true," said he, in speaking of
the matter yesterday, "that we have re
cently discharged several operators.
But they were not discharged for be
longing to any union. In fact I never
heard of such an order until I read of it
in the papers recently. If Mr. Thurs
ton has been informed of our intention
to prevent the organization from getting
a foothold on this coast, as he states,
why, then, his information is incorrect."
THE PENINSULAR ROAD.
Information Las been received to the
effect that the surveyors of the Peninsu
lar railway ran a line from Tia Juana to
the head of the bay, last week. Tt is
said to be the intention of the company
to build the connecting spur from the
Coronado track to the National City and
Otayj which will be replaced by heavier
rails, and by this means the line will
soon be completed to the Mexican bor
der. Work on the line north from San
Quintin is progressing rapidly, and the
Carlos Pacheco on her last trip took
down a lot of supplies for the workmen,
also ten wagons, ten sets of harness and
a lot of scrapers, all consigned to Con
tractor Graham. This outfit, in con
nection with what has gone before, will
enable Mr. Graham to work a large
force of men.—[SanJMego Union,

The railroad survey recently made for
the line from Temecula to Vista is found
to be a great improvement o\er any of
the previous surveys, being at least three
miles shorter and having no very heavy
grades. At the point where the old line
goes into the Temecula cafion the pro
posed short line will cross the cafion on
a trestle and bridge seventy feet above
the stream. The road will be all built
on high ground, far from danger of
washouts, and will be an improvement
in every way over the old line. —[San
