If the mayor and council so desire, we will send Sir. "Mort" Curran up there to act as referee. Major Bonsall is fairly familiar with Cushing's Manual, but manifestly inferior to Mr. Curran in the matter of Qtieensberry rnles. The Italian merchants of San Fran cisco are prudent and far-seeing as a class. Domenico Ghirardelli, now an octogenarian and yet a successful btißi neSß man, is a fair representative man of that class. He is now in Genoa, working up the proposition for a line of steamships between that city and San Francisco; and as California imports largely from Italy, it is evident that if the line be opened now, it will become an important commercial factor when ever the Nicaragua canal is opened. Tt is pleasing to note the frankness and candor of the medicAl fraternity during the past few weeks. They now call the forthcoming Asiatic disease by the proper title of cholera. A few weeks ago it was called "cholerine," which would probably have remained its Amer ican appellation for all time, if it had not arrived in New York and given them a chance to work upon the delicate nerves of their timid patients. Will the liquor habit be known hereafter as drunkine? Or the tobacco evil as smokine? The brutal murder of Louis B. Mc- Whirter and the escape oi the assassins, coming, as it does, on the back of the Collis train robbery, calls for the imme diate establishment of a state police force, to be mounted on Btrong horses and armed with carbines, like those used by the Btate police of Australia. There is no sheriff whose effice is prop erly that of a thief-taker, although that kind of work has become sanctioned by custom in all frontier communities. Under a police system such as we have here, the notorious "Kelly gang" of Australia would have ravaged that country for the next forty years. The old-time question of "where do you bury your dead?" that used to be asked of any man who made pretensions to fighting quality, Eeems to have awak ened a response in the tender bosom of a gentleman of Utah named Davis. Thiß good man recently found three persons stealing property from his ranch, and pumped them full of molten galena. Realizing that the deceased miaht be impecunious, he drove off to the next town and bought three coffins, with which he saw their brdiea consigned to the grave. Who will now venture to say that the sublime example of the good Samaritan is lost upon the present generation ? If eveb there waß partisan enthusiasm which failed to enthuse and political rapture that didn't rap worth a cent, it was at the Republican meeting in this city last night. The sad and somber features of the melancholy Markham loomed above the rostrum, like the face ot Caius Marius brooding over the ruins of Carthage. The band plajed eeveral dirges and the gloomy face of "Uncle Billy" Williams could have been sold to the Salvation army as a mask for ped diing tracts; and when the old gentle man's voice arose to remind his audience of the glowing history of the grand old party, it sounded like the "Uilagone" of an Irish wake. It was indeed a foreshadowing of a political doomsday. "When rogues fall out" is a proverb as old as the hills; so old, that it is wholly unnecessary to repeat the latter half of it. The Chronicle, whose editor is looking to the United States senate in the event of another Republican legislature, this winter, is now scoring the registrar of voters in that city, and says "it is putting it mildly to say that he is constantly bringing disrepute on the office, and that he is a scandal and a disgrace to the Republican party, to which he claims to belong." Governor Markham appointed the individual al luded, to, whose parents rejoiced in a common noun—Brown—for a surname. The Chronicle upbraids the governor for bavintr made the appointment, and calls upon him to remove Brown at once. If the governor can remove an appointee before the expiration of his term, he will certainly do so, because a division of the Republicans in San Francisco means a Democrat for Senator. The Chronicle Eays that Mr. Harri son, since he went into office, has re duced the interest charge from $34,578, --459 per annum to $22,803,881. But it forgets to mention that when the gen tlemen who talks through the hat of hie grandfather, assumed the reins of gov ernment, there was a surplus of $400, --000,000 in the treasury, accumulated by Mr. Cleveland, a great portion of which LOS ANGELES HERALO: BUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 4, 1892. haß since been used for paying off the national debt, and reducing the interest account in the manner referred to. Mr. Harrison's administration is not accu mulating any surplusage in the treas ur y_or in any other department of the government, for that matter, notwith standing the enormous increase in fed eral taxation created by the workings of the McKinley bill. WHERE IS THAT REPORT? The presence of the entomologist, Albert Koebele, in this city, naturally leads ud to a question. Mr. Koebele was sent by tbe United States to Aus tralia in 1888, to see if he could discover a natural enemy to the white cottony scale-bug, whose ravages among the orange trees in the two years previous to that date had been the principal cause of a decline in the great land boom. Frank McCoppin was appointed some time in January, 1888, as chief commis sioner on the part of the United States to tbe world's fair at Melbourne, of that year. Some delay was occasioned in the appointment of the four assistant commissioners provided for in the bill, but on the 28th of April Mr. Bayard (then secretary of state) appointed them, consisting of AlexanderCampbell, of Louisiana; Francis Wheeler, of New York; Richard L. Miller, of Virginia, and Thomas B. Merry, of Oregon. Im mediately on receiving his commission, Mr. Wheeler sailed for Sydney and Mr. Merry followed him a month later. Just before he sailed, Mr. McCoppin laid before him a correspondence that had passed between himself and the depart ment of agriculture, relative to the sending out of an entomologist to accompany the commissioners. The commissioner of agriculture eaid there was no money appropriated for any snch purpose in his department, nor was there any contingent fund whereby tbe expenses of an entomologist could be de frayed. He therefore suggested that the salary of the entomologist (S2OOO, to in clude all traveling expenses) be paid out of the $50,000 appropriated by congrets for the salaries and expenses of this commisßiou. Mr. McCoppin was anxious to serve the people of Southern California in this matter, and solicited Mr. Merry's co-opsration. The latter replied that he was perfectly willing to have the ento mologist's salary paid out ot the $50,000 appropriation, provided that the ento mological report should be published in the reports of the Melborne exhibition commission, to be printed by the depart ment of etate, and not issued by the bureau of agriculture, as the latter was doing nothing towards providing for payment of the entomologist's salary. This matter was clearly understood, and the letter of tbe chief commissioner and his assistant was in the latter's handwriting. Upon this showing by Messrs. McCoppin and Merry, the name of Mr. Albert Koebele was placed on the rolls of the state department. The labors of the commission closed in January, 1889, and the several mem bers thereof came back to America, ac companied by the secretary, Adoli h Marx, a lieutenant in the navy, who, in addition to his salary as a naval officer, received $0 per day salary as secretary, and his transportation to and from Mel bourne free of charge to himself. Mr. McCoppin received $6000 salary and $1500 traveling expenses, while the poor assistant commissioners only got $2500 apiece for everything, and had to pay about $1100 for railway and steamship fares out of that. No Booner had Marx returned than he was set to work as editor of the report of the commission, at a salary of $150 per month. This was some time in 1889, during the first part of Mr. Blame's term as secretary. Now, then, where is that report? The money that paid Mr. Koebele's ex penses to and from Australia was grant ed upon the express stipulation that his report should form part and parcel of the entire report of the commission. There were reports made by all the as sistant commiasioners. Mr. Camp bell's portion covered the wool interest: Mr. Miller's the tobacco and sugar in. terests; Mr. Merry's the quartz mining and inland river navigation; and Mr. Wheeler's the commercial relations, between Australia and America. None of these are of any great interest to the readers of the Herald, but the report of Mr. Koebele is something that is of importance to every fruit-grower be tween Tehama and San Diego. Why has not the report been printed by the department of Etate? At the close of the exhibition there remained an unexpended balance of nearly $12,000 to the credit of that appropriation, out of which the four assistant com missioners asked to be paid $1500 apiece for traveling expenses, to put them on an even footing with the chief commissioner. Both Secretaries Bayard and Blame refused to allow this, and the money still remains to the credit of the appropriation, if it has not been meanwhile expended on the "editorial" labors of Mr. Marx. Hence we ask the question, why has not the report of the Melbourne commission of 1888 been published? Can Mr. Secretary Foster tell? The quarantining of the Pacific Mail company's steamer City of Panama, from the port whose name ehe bears, was an act of plain duty on the part of Collector Phelps, of San Francisco. She probably had on board cargo from in fected ports, such as Hamburg, Bremen and Schwerin (and there will be enough Schwerin before the thing is all over), and the collector's instructions from the treasury department were such that he could not avoid detaining her. There will be quarantine regulations enforced there against a good many foreign ships in the next sixty days; and even steam ers from Australia, which is the oppo site end of the world from the seat of the disease, will be lucky to escape de tention. Will It Never End? • Vf 111 .» I WJUU i Editors Herald : A communication from Mr. Emil Harris (over his own sig nature) appears in tbe Hkbai.d of thia morning, which claims that I "evaded any fair method of settling the discus sion, etc." This is clearly a mistake on the part of Captain Harris, as can be proven by those present during tbe in terview, but to settle this matter once for all, I will accept Harris's own propo sition, towit: Mr. Harris claims that he wounded Vaeqnez by a bullet fired from a 44 caliber Henry rifle (of the old pattern) and also claims to be willing to leave the decision to,W. R. Rowland and K. P. Wise, and if these two gentlemen can not agree then they are to select the third judge whose decision shall be final. I will wager Mr. Harris $100 on this proffer of his, as per above noted condi tions. Mr. Harris offers to wager that "Vas quez surrendered to him." I will bet Harris $100 on this proposition. The actual witnesses to the surrender (who are still living) to decide the question by affidavit. They are Samuel Brya..t and B. F Hartler. Mr. Harris will ob ject to this, no doubt, claiming it should be decided by either himself or Ben C. Truman's bonk. As I am com pelled to leave the city tomorrow for a time, I will deposit with Thomas E. Rowan, Esq., $50, as a forfeit, to cover both bets on or before the 16rh ot the present month. Will Mr. Harris do the same? Is there anything unfair in this? Respectfully, Geo. E. Gard. DEPOT ROBBERS CAPTURED. Constable Kerns of San Fernando Does Some Good Work Constable J. H. Kerns, of San Fer nando, had a busy day yesterday, and succeeded in landing two tough charac ters in the county jail, who, with two companions, robbed the depot at Acton at daylight yesterday morning. The depot building at Acton is a small one, and the four men, who are all young fellows, let themselves in a door by a false key. Tbey succeeded in finding $30 in coin, with which they de camped. They walked to Ravena, a distance of several miles, and near that place divided the little amount which they had eecured. Freight train No. 21. bound for Los Angeles, came a ong in a little while, aud three of them man aged to secrete themselves on it, so that when it left Ravenna they believed themselves fixed for a safe ride to this city. The fourth member of the quar tette left hia friends at Ravena, and went offon his own hook. The robbery was discovered early in the morning, and the constable at Acton at once started out to hunt for the burg lars. He took V c precaution to wire Constable Kerns at San Fernando, which is thirty five miles from Acton, towards Los A' geles, to be on the look out. The telegram reached San F»r nando before freight train ISo. 21, so that when it pulled into the station the constable was there. When the train stopped he asked the conductor if any one was on his train, and the conductor had not seen any one. A search was quietly made, and when tbe tool box under the caboose was opened, there, snngly coiled up, were two of the fel lows. They were taken into custody and the third one was found on the trucks under th 9 cabooße. TLs trio were very much astonished at the rap idity with which they had been over hauled, but displayed by their actions a familiarity with crime, which showed that tl.ey were not new hands at the business. They gave their names as David Beas ley, who is üb:>ut 20 years old ; Henry Johnson, who doee not look over 17, and Harry Williams, who is about 19 old. All had smooth shaven faces, and, when questioned, gave their places ot residence in different parts of the east. Constable Kerns held them until the Santa Barbara passenger train came along, wben be started with his prison ers for Los Angeles. He handcuffed Beasley and tbe young man who gave his name as Harry Williams together, and Johnson was not handcuffed. The constable from Acton came down on the same train, and the two officers arrived safely in the city wi h their men, at the Arcade depot, at 9:30 o'clock last night, the train being late. The party was in the smoking car at the front end of the train. and when it stopped, Constable Kerns wait ed until all the other passengers had gone out of the car. Then he started with the prisoners. When they reached the platform of the smoker, he was on one side and the Acton constable on the other. Williams suddenly slipped the handcuff from his wr stand disappeared like a flash from the platform. Johnson, who was not handcuffed, also sprang off the platform in the Eame direction, and was followed by the Acton officer, who is something of a sprinter himself, and caught his man after a hard race ot about a hundred yards. Beasley als) made an attempt to run, but Constable Kerns grabbed him before he took a dozen steps. The two men were taken to jail and lodged safely behind the barß. Williams, or whatever his name may be, made good his escape in the dark ness, and no trace of him was discovered last night, although the "police were promptly notified and went to work on the caee. If he is in the city,, he will probably be captured. The young burglar slipped the hand cuff with the ease that only could come from practice and experience. It is the belief of Constable Kerns that they are accomplished crooks for such young men, and it is fortunate that two of the fel lows have been captured. A Prize Campaign Song, Readers of the Herald have noticed occasional jeux d ! esprit from the pen of WilliamS. Creighton, of this city. Re cently the San Francisco Rxaminer of fered prizes for the best campaign song. Mr. Creighton competed, and was awarded the second prize. The verses are as follows: From the populous Island Manhattan All the: way lo the Gold.-n Gate, The millions are tcdiing to fatten Tue rich by the tariff mude gr<.ut.

Deputy Sheriff Russell and Detective Smith on Their Trail. The Two Robbers Supposed to Have lie.mi Seen N«ar Colton-Posses Out After tbe Men—The Kxperl tnce of Mr. Leek. Information was received in this ci*y yeetentay morning early, that a man had notified the officers of San Bernar dino that two men resembling Evans and Sontng, the Collis train robbers, had passed his house. The man who brought the news lives between San Bernardino and Riverside, and said that the men were well mounted and heavily armed. They asked for something to eat, and made come threatening move ments with their guns to hasten up the grub. They did not stop to eat it, but took it along with them and rode off. From the description he gave of the men, the officers thought they might be train robbers, and notified Sheriff Gib eon of this city. As soon ap the newß was received, Jailer Russell and Detect ive Will Smith started for Colton, and are now following up the trail of the men. If they should prove to be Evans and Sontag/they are in all probability strik ing for the Mexican line, and are well on their way to it by this time. Noth ing was heard from Russell or Smith up to a late hour last night. THE AFFAIR BY TELEGRAPH. San Bernardino, Sept. 3.—Yesterday evening, about 5:30 o'clock, a man went to Mrs. Robinson's house, about a mile west of Colton, and demanded some thing to eat. He said he was no tramp, but had money to pay for what he got. He was disguised with a long red wig that fell down over his Bhoulders, and long false whiskers. He carried a Win chester rifle and a six-shooter in his belt. After getting something to eat he joined another man who was in the brush near the house, also heavily armed. As the first man walked away he limped just ac Sontag, the Collis train robber, is eaid to limp. Mrs. Rob ineon went to Colton about 9 o'clock and informed the officers what she had seen, who at once telephoned the sher iff's office ir. San Bernardino. Deputy Sheriff Holcomb, in the absence of Sher iff Scymore, at once formed a posse of four men who joined the officers in Col ton, by half past 10 o'clock. There two squads were formedof three men each, one goiDg by the way of Box epringe, the other by the way of Reche caiiou. searching all the trails for tracks of the two men. The two squads met at Moreno early this morning, and, having found nothing, started out on the return to this (ity. On their way back they etruck the fresh trail of the two men leading into the foothills through the brush. The officers followed the trail several hours without result, and finally gave it up, as the robbers had twelve hours' start. New posses are now being formed in Colton by Detective W ill Smith, in conjunction with the sheriff's ,office, to head off the men, and it is be lieved here that there is a good prospect of their capture. Riverside, Sept. 3. —A man who ar rived in this city from the mountains this morning claims to have met near here two men whom he believeß to be Collis robbers. Both were heavily Tinned and well mounted. THE HUENEME STORY. The source of the rumor that the Col lis train robbers were in this county was found yesterday by a Herald re porter. It seems that 'Gene Maxwell, as the stalwart revenue inspector of this dis trict is familiarly called, was, on Tues day, in Hueneme, and there heard the basis of tbe story, which was as follows, as narrated by the chief actor. On the morning of that day a man named Frank Leek was driving into Hueneme. He had lived for many years at Visalia, and was well acquainted with the Evanses and Sonntags.. While two miles from the town he overtook a man riding a big bay horse. Ac Leek drove by he looked at the man, and, as he claims, was much astonished to see that it was Chris Kvans ; at the same time the rider locked at Leek and recog nized him. Quick as flash he drew a six shooter, and made his old townsman ;-wear by all that was holy, that he would not divulge Evans's presence, nor move from the spot for an hour. The promise given, the supposed Evans wheeled his horse and dashed away across the country. Leek whipped up his horses, and got to Hueneme as fast as possible, where he hunted up Constable Rjan, and the two procured arms, and Btarted off after the man on horseback.

Mrs, Frank Bnrkle, whose husband is employed as a laborer on the electric railroad, committed suicide early yester day by taking carbolic acid. Mrs. Burkle was a middle aged wo man, and for sometime past had under gone a great deal of trouble. She was the mother of seven children, and for the past two weeks had been engaged almost constantly in nursing her eldest daughter, who is now ill and at the point of death with typhoid fever. On Friday night another daughter of the unfor tunate woman was stricken down with the disease, and the mother's reason gave way, and Bhe snatched up a phial containing carbolic acid, and swallowed it, before her hus band and children could stay her hand. They immediately summoned assist ance, but the deadly burning acid had accomplished its work, and she died in terrible agony. The husband only receives a email salary, and the pinch of poverty, with the added strain of sickneas among the children, made Mrs. Buckle very des pondent, and she had on several occa sions threatened to take her own life. The body was removed to the undertak ing parlors of Garrett & Samson, and it is presumed that the coroner will hold an inquest today. Notice to Pensioners.
