Associated Press Dispatches.
San Francisco, Feb. 6. — Capt. Wm
L. Merry, ex-presideut of the San Fran
cisco chamber of commerce, was seen
today regarding the statements made by
It. T. Sparks, who has returned here
from Managua, to the effect that work
on the Nicaragua canal had ceased.
Captain Merry is local agent for the
Nicaraguan government, and is also in
terested in the development of the
canal. He said:
"The statement that work on the
canal has ceased, is erroneous. The
construction company does not profess
to be doing extensive work on the
canal, pending the negotiations of their
securities in Europe, or until their con
tract has been passed upon by congress,
but my advices from the district en
gineer in December last, showed that
there were over 400 men on the payroll
at the time, and that work wae pro
gressing steadily, if slowly.
"The company has a concession from
Nicaragua for 100 years. Under the
terms thereof, they were required to ex
pend $2,000,000 in work the first year.
According to the report of the board
appointed by that government, nearly
$3,000,000 was expended by the com
pany, and the government not only ap
proved the work of construction as com
plying with the requirements of the
concession, but granted another exten
sion of ten years in addition to that
originally fixed for the completion of
the work and the opening of tbe canal.
"Over $5,000,000 of the $12,000,000
capital stock of the company has been
expended in the work, which has been
economically managed and has been
productive qf good results.
"A. G. Menocal, a representative of
the construction company, is now in
London effecting the disposal of $100,
--flsVoOO in bonds, and $90,000,000 in
stbek of the canal company, and pend
ing the disposal of these securities, and
the action of congress, which must
necessarily modify the company's pro
jects, the company is not warranted in
making any extensive improvements.
"My idea is that these statements
•detrimental to the company come from
persons interested in tbe numer
ous railroads projected or con
structed in the territory adjacent to
the canal. Such roads far from being
a hindrance to the canal, would develop
the country and commerce, and would
act as feeders to the canal, and vice
versa. It is confidently anticipated that
the local trade of Nicaragua alone will
within a few years after tbe construct
ion of the canal, pay for its mainten
ance, and I can say that, failing favora
ble action by the United States con
gress, England stands ready to take up
An Important Meeting of the Executive
Bam Francisco, Feb. 6.—The execu
tive committee of the Miners' Associa
tion of California held a meeting today.
Hon. John Boggs of Colusa expressed
his views on the manner in which farm
ers now regarded the mining situation,
and closed his speech with the assur
ance that the sympathy of tbe farming
classes is now with their old time oppo
nents. Considerable time was taken up
in discussing the proper mode of legisla
tion which would cover the case. No
definite action was, however, taken on
the matter, and the committee con
cluded the necessary arrangements for
departure of the delegates to Washing
ton. It has been decided that on Mon
day the gentlemen appointed will leave
for Sacramento to meet and talk the
matter over with Governor Markham,
returning to this city the same day.
•On Friday night Judge Niles Searles,
J. B. Hobson and J. K. Luttrell wilr
leave for Washington, to be followed in
about a week by R. McMurray, accom
panied by John Hammond, an honorary
delegate. The following gentlemen
have been appointed honorary dele
gates: Jesse R. Grant, Gen. E. F. Beale
and James V. Coleman for Washington;
Louts McLane, Baltimore ; William
Lent and James R. Keene, New York;
David T. Day, chief of the department
of the mineral statistics, Chailes Nord
hoff, Hon. Joe McKibben, John W.
Mackay, William M. Laffan, Hon. Geo.
G. Gorham and John Komass.
After the session of the executive
committee was adjourned, a meeting of
ithe finance committee was held, and it
-was decided to make the Crocker, Wool
worth & Co. bank the depository of the
funds of the association.
ALICE PACKARD'S FATE.
The Story of • White Girl's Abduction
i>* Indians Confirmed.
Tbkscott, Ariz., Feb. 6.—Further in
formation received today from Verde
•valley in regard to the alleged abduc
tion of AHce Packard, a 10-year-old girl,
by two Indians, confirms the report
received yesterday. At the ranch house
at which tbe Indians stopped with their
captive, there was no one at home ex
cept a half-witted boy, and he did not
tell the story until three daya after the
occurrence. While his story was not
believed at first, neighbors have since
investigated and discovered moccasin
tracks, together with tracks made by
the girl's shoes. It is now thought that
the Indians were Navajoes or Apaches,
■and as they had three days' start of
their pursuers, there is little hope of
overtaking the girl alive. The Indians
are probably now back on the reserva
tion, and it is feared the girl is dead.
Forty armed men are scouring the coun
try in every direction. At the time of
ber abduction tbe girl was on her way
to her uncle'B, and her parents, suppos
ing her to have arrived there, did not
know of ber terrible fate until several

pounds of Davella's remains were found.
He weighed during life 140 pounds.
The largest piece found was tbe size of

posed to have been the breaking of a
cartridge with his hands.
THE SIDNEY BELL CASE.
Three Affidavits hy Rev. T. C. Easton
Entered as Evidence.
San Fhancisco, Feb. 6.—The Bell case
was resumed today. A number of affida
vits were read, including one by Rev. T.
C. Easton, who set forth that Detective
Brown's sterling qualifications were
such as to entitle him to membership in
the_ religious society known as the
United Brethren. Brown's compensa
tion was fixed in tbe Bell case before
Brown came to this city, it being at the
rate of $20 to $25 per day up to February
Ist. Deponent had paid him but $870.
Deponent was satisfied that Brown never
used the money for ends but those of
In a second deposition Rev. Mr.
Easton set forth that Convict Schmidt
had repeatedly told him Bell was inno
cent, but tbat Campbell had murder on
his soul, and that he (Schmidt) had
entered into an agreement with Camp
bell to swear away Bell's life in order to
escape punishment for his own crime.
In a third affidavit Mr. Easton relates
an interview which he had with Camp
bell at the latter's room. Campbell had
a dagger in his hand, but subsequently
laid it down, remarking that deponent
need not be afraid of him. Campbell
said no one but himself knew who killed
Jacobson, but at no time did he deny
Joseph Schwartz took the stand to
deny all charges with reference to his
connection with the case, alter which a
continuance waß taken until Friday

Grave Fears Entertained for the Steam
San Francisco, Feb. o.—The steamer
Humboldt from Eureka, Cal., is now

A GIDDY BLONDE.
She Is Charged with Leading Astray
a Pomona Barber.
Lizzie F. Johnson is an English music
teacher, and some months ago she mar
ried in this city, says the Oakland
Times, Henry Johnson, who called him
self a "tonsorial artist," but who is
commonly known aa a barber. He had
a shop on Market street.
Henry could not have loved bis young
wife very much, for on the second day
after the wedding he took a giddy young
blonde to the skating rink in San Fran
cisco and returned at an unseasonable
hour the next morning. He also bor
rowed $180 from his wife while she fit
ted up his shop for him. He kept up
his attentions to the giddy blonde, and
on the eighth day after the wedding
skipped out and is now in Pomona.
Keut of St. Louis County Ladies.
The ottar of roses is supposed to be a
peculiarly oriental production, but 1
saw the other day a small bottle of genu
ine ottar made in St. Louis county by
two ladies, in whose yard there grew an
immense quantity of roses. Early in the
spring they conceived the idea of manu
facturing some of the ottar. They gath
ered all the roses they could find on the
place and followed the method as de
scribed in books of eastern travel. They
were somewhat discouraged at finding
how little ottar could be made from so
large a quantity of roses. It took, in
fact, about a barrel of rose leaves to
make less than half an ounce of the
ottar, but it is genuine, as fragrant as
the oriental product, and made them
very proud of their success. The genu
ine product sells for from forty dollars
to fifty dollars an ounce, but theirs is
not for sale.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
