VOL. XXXVIII.-NO. 22. REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. Stockton Swarming with Delegates and Visitors. A Lively Contest for the Per manent Chairmanship. J. H. Neff and J. W. Rea the Opposing Candidates for tho Place, Estno. Spenoe and Cole Will Be Elected Delegates -at - Largo — Col. Bob Northam Dosen't Seem to Be In It. Associated Press Dispatches. Stockton, Cal., May 2.—This city is crowded tonight with delegates and pol iticians who are here to attend the state Republican convention which will be called to order at 2 o'clock tomorrow aft ernoon. Nearly all the delegates have arrived on tbe field of action, and are busily engaged in arranging for tomor row's programme. This convention elects only district delegates and dele gatee-at-large to the national convention at Minneapolis, and unless some strong fight develops tomorrow it will be a short one. Interest centers largely in the soleition of chairman of the convention and the election of delegates-at-large. For chair man, J. 11. Neff of Placer county, and J. W. Rea of San Jose are slated for candi dates. Neff is supposed to represent the Burne-Wilson faction, and Rea the Kellv-Crimminß Bide. Neff'a supporters are wildly enthusiastic, and claim that his election is an assured fact. The sec ond congressional district is solid for Neff, and he has many supporters among the Southern California delega tions. The Los Angeles and San Diego delegations are divided between the two candidates. Rea's adherents are posi tive that their man will be selected, and are doing some lively work tonight to improve his chances. Notwithstanding Rea's confidence, the general impres sion seems to be that Neff will be elected chairman without much trouble. The contest for delegates-at-large promises to be a lively one. Four dele gates-at-large are to be selected and there are eight candidates for tbe posi tions. They are: M. M. Estee of Napa, E. F. Spence, Los Angeles; Daniel Cole, Sierra; Norman D. Ride out, Yuba; M. H. De Young, W. H. H. Barnes and Senator C. N, felton, San Francisco, and Robert Northam of Los Angeles. The sentiment seems to be that Estee, Spence and Cole will surely secure the coveteu ptaitiona while it will be a hard fight between De-Young, Felton and Barnes. It was rumored that Felton had with drawn from the contest, but tonight it was stated that he is in the fight to stay. De Young's supporters are very confi dent and state that their man will be sent to Minneapolis. The preliminary contestover the chair manship and delegates-at-large has over shadowed everything else, and the ques tion of platform and resolutions does not cut much of a figure. There will be some little delay over tbe contest as to seating some of the San Francisco delegates. If Neff gets the chairmanship, it is claimed that a committeo on credentials will be ap pointed which will seat the delegates supporting Burns and Wilson. On the other band, if Rea presides over the convention, tbe Kelly-Crimmins dele gates will get the preference. MINING PROPERTY BURNED. A Large Hill Destroyed by Fire at Car son, Nevada. Carson, Nev., May 2.—The Eureka mill, on the Carson river, was destroyed by fire this morning. The loss is over $100,000. The fire is Bupposed to have started in a small room at the end of the sixty stamp battery, and spread rapidly over the building. Many parts of the build ing were open, admitting a Btrong draught. The watchmen got out a hose, but it was burnt in two, and nothing was left to fight tbe fire with. All attention was then given to Superintendent Woodbury's house, which was saved. Two hundred cords of wood were de stroyed also, and the entire milling plant and machinery are almost worth less. The fire started at 5 o'clock this morn ing and reduced the mill to ashes inside of four hours. Many men are thrown out of employment. The building was insured in the T. F. Uofer agency, for $15,000, and was tbe property of the Com stock Mill and Mining company. JUMPED THE TRACK. Fatal Aeeldent on a San Francisco Electric Road. San Francisco, May 2.—A car on the San Francisco and San Mateo railroad, a new electric motor line, jumped the track in the outskirts of the city this afternoon, and was overturned. The car was filled with passengers, and thirteen were more or lees injured. Joaiah Saunders, tbe motor man, and M. S. Ureanus and John Brady, passen gers, were fatally hurt. -♦ A 14-Year-Old Girl Suicides. Hollistkr, Cal., May 2.—Minnie Tracey, aged 14 years, committed sui cide near here today by taking strych nine. Sbe was left an orphan about ten years ago, and has since lived with an old lady named Mrs. Valentine Matth ews. Today Mrs. Matthews took occa sion to scold her for some trifling matter in the presence of a companion, which humbled her so tbat she concluded to take her life. Shot His Bartender. Visalia, Cal., May 2.—Chas. Schmidt shot his bartender, Charles Witt, at midnight last night. Schmidt has been arrested. Witt was hit in the breast. He is still alive, and may recover. Schmidt claims that he did the shooting in self-defense. Illegal Bonds. Tucson, Ariz., May 2.—-District J-'dge Sloan decided this morning that the Tucson and Globe Narrow Guage rail road bonds were illegal on the grounds that the organic act creating the territo rial government of Arizona prohibits the legislature from granting special priv ileges or franchises. This act was man datory, requiring the county to exchange its bonds with that of the narrow guage railroad, which the county did to the amount of $1,150,000. The interest due is $40,000. The bonds are held in En gland and the bondholders there brought suit to recover. — BRUGGY'S LEG BAIL. A Condemned Murderer Escapes from Santa Rosa Jail. Santa Bosa, Cal., May 2.—Excite ment was caused this morning by the discovery that George W. Hruggy, the condemned murderer, who was to have been sentenced for the third time today, had escaped from the jail. The escape is pronounced one of tbe cleverest on record by all who examined the jail. The bars in one of the round windows in the west side of the outer wall were cut, leaving an open space large enough for the passage ot a man's body. After passing through tbis opening, a person will be on the inside of the jail, but out side of the main cage enclosing the cells. An entrance was made into the cage by cutting off two bars forming a lattice, which, when filed clear, left room for persons to go to Bruggy's cell and cut the screws to admit the sliding of tbe bolts. Whether an entrance was made from tbe outside in tbe manner de scribed,'or the order reversed, remains a mystery. The latter theory, however, is given color by tbe escape at the same time of a man named Frenchy. Sheriff Mulgrew has offered $200 re ward for Brnggy's capture, and all his deputies bave been in tbe field since early this morning. The general belief is that Bruggy made his way to deep «ater as soon as possible. It was at first thought his wife assisted him, but she appears to be broken-hearted to think her husband has deserted her. THE SAN ANDREAS OUTRAGE Olilr.org On the Track of the Assassin. Funeral of a Victim. San Andreas, May 2.—Owing to the heavy rains of Saturday night Sheriff Thorn and posse were unable to con tinue on the tracks of the murderer who fired into the San Andreas and Sheep Ranch stage on Saturday morning last. J. B. Hume, Wells, Fargo & Co.'s de tective, arrived last night and spent tbe early part of today with Sheriff Thorn, engaged in trying to find some clue or adopt some theory upon which to work. They left here this afternoon, but their objective point is not known. The funeral ot Miss Rodesino, the young lady who was killed in the stage, took place today at her home in El Dor ado. Her uncle, John Rodesino, a prominent merchant of that place, offers a reward of $2000 for the arrest and conviction of the murderer. The stage driver, Rube Roggio, who received two buckshot in his breast, and who is now lying at a dwelling house where be was carried, a short distance from the scene of the tragedy, is rapidly sinking, and the attendant physicians say that he will not live until morning. MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. California Towns Getting Used to the Australian Ballot. Hollister, May 2.—The largest vote in the history of this place was polled at the town election held here today. A great fight was made to elect a board of trustees that would be in favor of clos ing the saloons on Sunday, but the ticket opposed to Sunday closing was elected by a good majority. Forty votes were thrown out on account of irregu larity, as many of the voters substituted a leadpencil for the regulation rubber stamp. Visalia, Cal., May 2.—There was an exciting city election today. Six hun dred votes were polled. The Australian ballot confused many voters. 'The polls closed at 5 o'clock, and at 8 the board bad not yet commenced counting. Red Bluff, Cal., May 2.—A special election on tbe 30tb ultimo voted a di rect tax of $12,000 to build a new town hall. The election was held under the Australian ballot system, and passed off without any trouble. Ballot reform worked well. Three hundred and twenty-six ballots were cast. There was a majority of 77 for the tax. CALIFORNIA CROPS. Grain in the Northern and Central Val ley* Looks Well. San Francisco, May 2. —The Asso ciated Press has received telegraphic re ports from a large number of places in the wheat and barley districts of North ern and Central California, showing tbe condition of the crops at the present time. In the northern part of the state, particularly in the Sacramento valley and the northern portion of the San Joaquin valley, the late rains have been very beneficial to the growing grain, and reports from nearly all places in those districts indicate that the prospect for an abundant yield is excellent. In tbe southern districts, in the neighborhood of Visalia, Tulare, Templeton and Paso Hobles, growth was retarded by lack of rain, and a light crop is generally expected, though near Fresno and Bakerafield theontlook is better, especially at the latter place, where the acreage is large. M'DONALD'S MONEY. An Illegitimate Bon Inherit* His Father's Estate. San Francisco, May 2.—Judge Coffey today rendered a decision in the contest over tbe estate of Captain C. E. Mc- Donald, who died in this city several years ago, leaving property valued at $160,000. The court decided today that Henry McDonald was legitimatized by public recognition and adoption on the Eart of the captain, bis father, and that c ia therefore entitled to the estate. ——♦ • The Baltimore Bound North.

Light Showers and Heavy Fogs. San Luis C-Bisro, May . 2. —Light showers fell this morning and heavy fogs prevail, which will help the grain i out considerably. TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 3, 1892. DEEMING'S DOOM SEALED. His Trial Resulted in a Verdict of Guilty. The Insanity Dodge Did Not Go Down with the Jury. He Spoke in His Own Behalf Before the Case Was Submitted. The Judge Immediately Pronounced the Death Sentence on tho Culprit. The Prisoner's Well-Feigned Nonchalunce. Associated Press Dispatches. Melbourne, May 2.—The trial of Frederick Bailey Deeming for the mur der of his wiie was resumed tbis morn ing. The first witness was Dr. Spring thorpe, who related Deeming's explana tion of how his wives disappeared. Deeming said while he and bis first wife were living at Rainhill, near Liverpool, a man named Ben Young told him hie (Deeming's) wife would leave him for fifty pounds. He paid the money and his wife left him. He supposed Young killed her while he (Deeming) was com ing to Melbourne with bis second wife (Miss Mather) for whose murder he ib now on trial. His second wife, Deeming said, con fessed that she was already married, and left him in Melbourne, because she was afraid of being implicated in tho murder of his first wife. The fact is the Rainhill murder was known to no one save Deeming unti' after he killed his second wife. It wr.& the murder of his second wife here in , led the police authorities to notify tho;. 1 in London of their suspicion that Deei>, ing murdered his wife and children' ;t Rainhill; therefore it may be seen tbv<t his statement relative to his second wife leaving him for fear of being imp:: cated in the murder of his first wife, is false. After some further testimony by Dr. Springthorpe, the defense announced its case closed. After the evidence was all in, Deem' ing's counsel appealed to the jury to give the prisoner the benefit of any doubt as to his sanity. The crown counsel contended that there was not a particle of evidence to establish the insanity of the prisoner. DEEMING SPEAKS IN HIS OWN BEHALF. At this point Deeming interrupted the crown counsel. It was not the law, he said, but the press that was trying him. If he could bring himself to be lieve he committed the murder he would plead guilty rather than submit to thto gaze of the people in court. They wei the ugliest race he had ever seen. Soma witnesses against him deliber ately lied. Whatever he could say would be disbelieved. His witnesses had been kept out of the way. People had sworn to seeing him whom he had never seeu in his life. No time was allowed him to communicate with witnesses in England or India. It was not pleasant to confess to diseases, mental or otherwise, but he had determined to do so in justice to himself and tbe community. For weeks together he suffered lapses of memory. In his own mind he knew he was not guilty. As long as Emily Mather had been his wife he dealt with her as gently and affectionately as it was possible for any man to do. A VERDICT OF GUILTY WELCOME. The prisoner continued: "I remem ber no incident which would lead to this awful crime with which I am charged. The statement that the body found in this city was that of Emily Mather is a lie. My one comfort is the knowledge that she is alive. The news papers have ruined my life forever. If I were freed tonight I would drown my self. Ido not fear death. Ido not ex pect justice from either tbe judge, jury, or the public." DeemiDg minutely criticised the evi dence, and declared that a verdict of guilty would be the greatest relief to him. He said the use of aliases was a fad with him. The judge's summing up was strongly against the prisoner. The jury in a short time returned a •verdict of guilty, and adding that the piisoner was not insane. THE DEATH SENTENCE PRONOUNCED. After the verdict was announced, Deeming asked the judge to refrain from the usual exhortation. The judge com plied, and simply announced the sent ence of death. Deeming responded composedly: "Thank you." Afterwards Deeming said the public would know his real history after his death. It was better tbe law should destroy him than be should destroy himself. In a strong voice he continued to ramble in a similar strain for some time, and concluded by swearing he was innocent. He spoke altogether for an hour, giving no signs of hesitation or nervousness. THE PUBLIC SATISFIED. The courtroom was crowded with peo ple who wished to hear the jury an nounce the decision. No one thought it would take them long tb decide. Out side of the courtroom a large crowd as sembled, clamorously impatient for tbe verdict. Finally the crowd became so demonstrative that the police were forced to clear the streets. The an nouncement of the verdict was greeted with expressions of general satisfaction. Anarchist Pamphlets. St. Petersburg, May 2.-jThe dis semination of Anarchist pamphlets is on the increase. These inflammatory tab lets blame the czar and government for the famine and attendant miseries, and the authorities are greatly incensed at their circulation. A reward of 100,000 roubles is offered for the apprehension of the printers, but so far the police have failed to discover them. A May-Day Incident. Buda-Pksth, May 2.—ln spite of the police prohibition the workingmen of this city gathered at thirty-two different places yesterday, marched in a proces sion to Nunsdorfer park and celebrated the day. While the demonstration was in progress fire broke out in the Nichol son machine factory adjacent to the park, and the rumor spread that the fire was started by workmen to enable them to loot the establishment. The proprietor denies, however, that the fire was of incendiary origin. The building was gutted. Loss $100,000. •—.— APPEARANCES ARE DECEITFUL. France Warned That Hor Anarchist Troubles Are Not Yet Ended. Paris, May 2.— The papers generally, commenting on the quietness shown by the Anarchists, give warning that ap pearances are deceitful, and that it will not do to suppose that the trouble with Anarchists ia at an end. Reports from all points of importance in the provinces today show that no serious disorder j oc curred anywhere yesterday. It is stated that the Marquis De Mores has challenged a municipal councillor, who insultingly referred to him in a public speech yesterday. A number of reactionary youths held a secret meeting Saturday night, with the object of forming an anti-Anarchist association. Many incoherent speeches were made, which promised little prac tical results. The movement may, how ever, lead to demonstrations in which the Anarchists are likely to be roughly handled. A quantity of explosives were seized today in an Anarchist's residence at Yille Momble, the police having got wind of a plot to destroy the Hotel Ville. One person waß arrested and a number of others escaped. Ravachol, who has recovered from his recent fit of dejection, and now laughs at the way in which he scared the juTy, expecta a verdict of extenuating cir cumstances, in the Montbmon trial, re lying on the effect of similar coercive tactics against the jury. DYNAMITING IN LIEGE. Another Bomb Explosion In the Bel gian City. Lieoe, May 2.—A dynamite cartridge was exploded on the threshold of Count Minette'a residence this evening, 'ihe houao and the building adjoining, oc cupied by General Loudon of the civic guard, lor whom it is thought the dynamite was intended, were partially wrecked. The flagstones were torn up, and all the windows withfti a radius of 200 yards damaged. A German who fled just afterthe explosion was arrested, but denied being the author of the out rage. DODGING THE ISSUE. British Statesmen Shun Discussion of tbe Eight-Hour Day. London, May 2.—At a meeting of workiogmen's delegates, letters were read from Salisbury and Balfour, saying they could not receive a deputation set ting forth claims for an eight-hour day. A letter from Gladstone said he would consider the views of the trades unions, but considered the question not yet ripe, and hoped to be excused from conver sation. Archbishop Ireland's Plan Favored, London, May 2.—The Rome corres pondent of the Chronicle Bays: The pope has confirmed the decision of the propaganda in favor of the plan advo cated by Archbishop Ireland, allowing American Catholic schools to be taught by state teachers, religious instruction to be given after school hours, the ob ject being to relieve Catholics of the burden of expense of separate Bcbools. A Battle in Africa. London, May 2.—A telegram from the British West African colony of Gambia, received at the war office, says British forces, consisting of fifty marines and 300 troops, captured Toniatabia after a spirited defense. Captain Roberta of the Third West India regiment was killed and three others of the British force were severely wounded. The enemy's loss was heavy. Rioting in Holland. The Hague, May 2.—The only dis turbance to note in Holland yesterday was at Leeuwarden, seventy miles northeast of here, where a conflict took place between police and workingmen, and became so serious that the cavalry were called out and dispersed the riot ers, who were stoning the police. The excitement continued throughout the evening. Many windows were broken by missiles. Canadian Sealers. Ottawa, Ont., May 2.—Tbe customs department knows nothing of the al leged design of a number of British Columbian sealers to register under for eign flags, in order to evade the provis ions of the modus Vivendi. FOREIGN FLASHES. Yatea Car ring ton, tbe well-known an imal painter, is dead. Baron Fava, tbe Italian minister to the United States, has started on his way to Washington. The British government has received no official news of the outbreak in Vene zuela. Two British warships, however, have been ordered to La Guayera. Locusts are ravaging South Africa. A swarm six milts wide, flying seaward, passed over Grahamstown, Cape Colony, Crops in the Orange Free state have been destroyed. Returns from Sunday's municipal elections in France show an increase in the number of Republican candidates elected. Of 204 councils, the Republi cans bave 191. A Spanish sailing vessel, bound for Albnclemas, a Spanish prison settle ment in tbe Mediterranean, becalmed off the coass oi Morocco and was boarded and looted by a number of pirates. More than a ton of dynamite and gun powder has been stolen from Greek magazines on the island of Corfu. It is thought the thefts were made in small quantities. The man who caused a bomb explos ion near the Guise barracks in Tours Sunday, and waß almost fatally injured by tbe explosion, is a wealthy grocer, well known as a pious man and royalist. At a meeting of the French cabinet, the minister of marine urged that the credit for the navy be increased by 3,700,000 francs. The finance minister objected, saying financial obstacles would make it impossible to grant tbe amount asked. A decision in the matter was deferred.

Omaha, Neb., May 2.—Twenty-fourth quadrennial conference of the Methodist church was opened here this morning by Bishop Bowman. The entire morn ing session waa devoted to the discus sion of the proposition to seat lay dele gates separate from the clergy. The question was still undecided when a re cess was taken. During the discussion of tbe resolu tions to seat lay delegates, Dr. John Lanaban said he believed the laymen would have more influence and power in the conference by being seated sepa rately. Mr. Hinkle, of Kentucky, vigorously combatted tbe idea. He wanted the ad vice of ministers, and wanted tbe minis ters occasionally to get advice from the laymen. He wanted equal representa tion, but was opposed to separation. Mr. Murray of Pennsylvania said the laymen merely wished to be placed on an equality with the ministers. Here tofore they had lost their individuality. Dr. Buckley, editor of the Christian Advocate, thought the laymen had not been given a fair chance to exercise equal power with the ministers. .Nine tenths of laymen, said he, attend but one general conference, but the ministerial delegates go to conference after confer ence, and the bishops who preside know them. The bishops are not acquainted with the laymen when they arise on the floor with half a dozen ministers, the result usually is that the presiding offi cer recognizes some ministerial delegate and the layman aits down. After a long wrangle, the conference decided to allow the lay delegates, who bo desired, to select Beats separate from the ministers. The drawing of Beats by lot then began, and continued until 7:30 this evening, when the conference ad journed until tomorrow. ANNA DICKINSON DYING. The Distinguished Lady Seriously Ill With Pneumonia. New York, May 2.—Anna Dickinson is reported to be seriously ill at tbe Fifth Avenue hotel. She was stricken last week by an illness which two days ago developed into pneumonia. Her regular physician is in attendance all the evening. At midnight her condition was so precarious that the hotel people would not allow any message sent to the doctor for fear of disturbing her. None of Miss Dickinson's relatives are at the hotel, but if ahe grows no better tomor row they will be summoned to her bed side. Canada Wants Representation. Ottawa, Ont., May 2.—ln the house today was presented a motion that Canada be represented in Washington by Canadians, who should be attached to the British minister's staff. Pending a vote, the debate was adjourned. t —— s — Investigate the good values in fine tailoring, a perfect fit and large new stock at 125 W. Third st. H. A. Getz. PRICE FIVE CENTS.
