TRYING TO PLACE THE BLAME.
The Inquiry Into the Colnmbns Day Explosion. Pyrotechnist Wilson Rather Criti cizes the Mayor as an Expert. Evidence That Goes to Show That Boya Cansod the Explosion—Wilaon Fat on the Stand—Be Tells About the Experiments. The examination into the cause oi tho fatal explosion at the Columbus day celebration was resumed last evening before Coroner Weldon, in Justice Stanton's court room. An array oi pieces of exploded mortars was laid on the judge's bench as evidence and for the inspection of the jury. Very lew spectators were present. Wilson, who had-charge oi the fireworks at the time of the explosion, was present and testi fied. Wilson still remains in the central police station, preferring to stay there, stages Chief Glass, until the investiga tion is finished. There were 22 witnesses examined; one witness remains to be examined, -which will conclude the investigation. Ordinarily, jurors and witnesses do not receive pay during tbeir attendance before a coroner's inquest; butCoioner Weldon stated tbat, owing to the im portance of the case, and tbe continued attendance of the jurors, he would en deavor to have them paid. The first witness was Mrs. Mary Bunker, widow of Bernard Bunker, who died from injuries received at the ex plosion. She was dressed in deep mourning, and gave her testimony amid considerable emotion. Her evidence was mainly as to the manner of her husband's death. E. Castillo testified: I was present at the fireworks, and I noticed that when the bombs were fired tbe crowd rushed in beyond the ropes, and I did the same, foolishly; I heard a terrific ex plosion, and thought something was wrong; I was about 20 feet from the mortar; the boy, Ford, who was killed, was in front of me; it was very dark, yet once in awhile there was a light from the rockets; the boy was killed in the middle of the crowd. E. W. Kinzie, clerk of Justice Owens' court, testified that as a member of tbe Union league, he made arrangements with Wilson for fireworks at San Juan. The event waa the destroying of the effigy, Driving Away Dull Care, which was to be exploded by the bombs. He prepared tbe bombs, but did not at tend the fireworks. "The mortar wae placed under lock and key, and I do not think anybody tampered with tbe bomba. After tbe explosion I examined the effigy and found no trace of the mor tar, except the iron base. It waa a two inch mortar. I spoke to Wilaon about the accident, and he aaid that some one muet have tampered with it, or else the bomb turned, or shifted, as it was placed in the mortar." George Christian, who was acting for the celebration committee testified: "I asked tbe committee to exchange some fire-rockets for smalll' inch bomba, as I considered j rockets very danger oua. When the ahip burned, I noticed that Wilson had forgotten to fire a act piece, and he replied: 'Yes, that ia ao; these boys make me crazy;' and he went to fire the battery; I then left the ground, when I heard a terrific explo sion, which almoat lifted me from the ground; Mr. Wilson apoke to me about some policemen, and said that he would also get a policeman." Mr. S. Gaati, one of the committee men, testified: I din not tell Wilaon that I would see tbat be was provided with policemen or the Garibaldi Guards; he aaid that be once before bad trouble with boya, who stole hia tire-rockets, and said that he would have to put up a wire rope. We paid him $5 for putting up tbe rope. He firat apoke about the po lice, because there had been trouble be fore." Charles Johnson, a youth about 16 yeara of age, testified: "When Mr. Wil son asked the boys to leave the grounds they threw dirt in hia face; I aaw aome boys explode some Roman candles, and alao touch off aome gunpowder; I know it was gunpowder, because I have touched off gunpowder many times and know how it blazes up; the powder went up with a flash, without explosion; I would not know the boy who fired it, becauee it waa very dark; I waa about SO ieet lrom the mortar when it explod ed ; it killed the little boy, Oden, and also knocked me down; Oden'a body fell acroaa me." J. C. Johnson, oi the Loa Angeles iron works, examined a piece of broken mor tar, and gave it as his opinion that it was a good quality of iron; he made i Borne mortars for Wilson obout 18 months ago. Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson testified to hearing two boys talking about the mat ter. She said: "I think I should know the boys; they were between 13 and 15 years of age; one of tbem said he had rpulled a fuse partly out of a mortar, and was sorry that he did not pull it entirely out; I wae so shocked at such a state ment that I was on the point oi calling him back and saying, 'Perhaps that caused the death of these people;' but the boys hurried away; they seemed to be proud of the act; lam not related to Mr. Wilson, and never saw him until thia evening at the inquest." This important evidence created quite a commotion among the jurors and spec tators. Coroner Weldon then requested several small boys wbo sat in a row on a bench in tbe rear of tbe room, and who were present for the purpose of identification, to atand up. Tbe witness viewed them rather closely, but failed to identify either of them as the onea wbo spoke so indifferently and boaatfuily about pulling the fuae partly out of the mortar. This testimony points to the fact that these boys knew that the mortar had been tampered with, and at the last mo ment thought of pulling out tbe fuae ao as to avoid an explosion, but stopped when the fuse waa partly pulled out. Mr, J. J. Rangan, one of the com mittee, testified tbat he never spoke to the police; he expected that on such occasions, where there were thousands of people, the police would be present. "I was present," said tbe witness, "and do not blame Mr. Wilson; a piece of mortar cut through the leg of my panta loons, but if it had broken my leg, I ' should not have blamed Mr. Wilaon. W. W. Beach stated that he aaw a lot of email boys firing off rockets. Mr. Beach further stated that he had scales which would denote weight to the most minute particle,and as an evidence of Mr. Wilson's carefulness, he had called upon him several times to borrow the scales, bat never happened to meet bim. Eugene Baaaett, a printer, testified that he heard a boy say tbat be pulled a fuae partly out of the mortar,and wished tbat he had pulled it entirely out, and then the exploaion would not have oc curred. Mr. Baieett stated, for tbe in formation of the coroner, that a contract or named Snook, in Mott alley, haa a boy in his employ who saw a boy pour powder into a mortar. Tbe coroner thanked Mr. Basaett for bis information, and at once issued a Bubpcena for the boy. Walter Peck, a boy who was employed by Wilson to assist in shooting off red lights, testified: There were plenty of boys there that night; I caw some of them "taking Wilson's Roman candles and rockets ; we did not use powder out of a cigar box; I aaw Wilson when he loaded the mortar; when he put the bomb in he turned hia back to tbe mor tar and took a step forward; tbe boys were all around tbe place when the bomb was fired; I waa about 20 feet away. Charles McDonald, a newsboy, testi fied : I heard some of the boys aak where the box ot powder waa; then I beard some one Bay get back, but I could not get back, becauee tbe boya were firing lire-rockets at tbe transpar ency which I carried. Robert Wilson, a boy aged about 12 years, eon of W. H. Wilaon, testified that be was present during the evening of the explosion; and that hia father endeavored to keep the crowd back; he wae in front and attempted to get the boye to keep outside of tbe rope; he saw some of the boys steal Roman candles. William Wilaon, another aon of W. H. Wilson, testified that he saw boya steal ing Roman candles, and helped to keep the boya back. Mr. Mason, wbo is in the iron busi ness, testified tbat good iron will not break off abort, but rather in long stripe. The bombs that burst at the accident exploded from the middle downwards, breaking "short off." William Henry Wilson waa placed up on the stand, and, after innumerable questions by aome of tbe jurora on mat ters that had been previously explained at length, the witness was aeked by the coroner to make a statement in reference to the explosion of the bombs at the re cent experimental test. Wilaon eaid: When I left the court room I waa very much surprised on being told where I waa to go; I was placed in a carriage and told that I waa to experiment on firing mortars. I wanted to take scales along to meaeure powder for charges, but the mayor would not let me do ao. When we got to the ravine Mayor Hazard placed tbe mortar in position, and put tbe bomb in upaide down. He rammed tbe bomb down with a stick, and had some little trouble in getting it into the mortar. The reason I jumped behind a projection oi earth waa becauee I believed it would buret tbe mortar. When tbe bomb ia put in right Bide up, I merely turn my back to the mortar. The mortar buret becauee the powder wae at tbe top, instead of at the bottom, and tbe powder had a downward tend ency, instead of aending it upward out of the mortar, which it would have done bad tbe bomb been placed in right aide up." The witness then explained the man ner in which a shell fitted a mortar bo that while it went down when properly placed, it had to be forced down when wrongly placed. Thia waa owing to the fuae, which fitted into tbe aide of tbe bomb, and when reversed it doubled tbe fuae. The witneaa continued: "After thia exploaion, I fired three ether shells, placing tbem proper ly, and there waa no mortar burst. Eigbt ounces of powder waa then put in a 2-inch mortar, and a piece of wood put on top; tbe major wanted to fill the mortar, but I told him eight ounces was enough to buret the mortar, but be aaid, 'Fill ber up,' and seemed to want to burst the mortar; I touched it off, and the mortar burst; it was overloaded; three ounces of powder is an ordinary charge." The witness waa then aaked in refer ence to the accident at San Juan. He stated: "The ahell tbat buret there must have been tampered with; I have sold aeveral hundreds of eimilar sheila since tbat time, and not one mortar hae burst, where my instructions were car ried out. I waa not at San Juan at the time." Tbe inquest waa adjourned until 9 o'clock thia morning. CLIMATE REFUGEES. Santa Fa Kxourslonlsts Wbo Arrived Yesterday. A. F.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 27, 1892. THE ROLINDA TRAIN ROBBERY. Interesting Developments in the Sontag Trial. The Coil of Evidence Tightening* Around the Defendant. Kxpress Messenger Robert* Identifies Him as One of the Robbers—Strong Corroborative Testimony Given by Others. By the Associated Press Fiiksno, Oct. 26.—1n the Son tag trial today George Roberta, the express mea eenger, told the atory of the train rob bery. "How does the defendant compare with the man who entered the car, ac to voice, size and general appearance?" asked the district attorney. "In my own mind I am perfectly sat isfied that he ia the man who entered my car tbat night," impreesively an swered the witneaa. The answer caused a flutter of excite ment among the spectators. The pria oner became nervous and whispered to hia counsel. Roberta waa then with drawn. At the afternoon session the cross examination of Express Messenger Rob erts waa resumed. The whole story was gone over again and the witness did not deviate from the testimony given by him on direct examination. One im portant point of his testimony conflicted with Engineer Phippe' atory. Phipps atated that the robber wbo Beamed to be taking the leading part, and who in believed to have been tbe defendant, had a Canadian accent. Roberta testified that he had beard the defendants voice Bince the robbeiy, and it was like the voice of the robber who treated him ao roughly. He did not notice, however, tbat he had a foreign accent. The defendant asked the witness a number of questions for the purpoae, aa be stated, of showing tbat tbe witness was under undue influence of the ex press company. Tbey were objected to, however, by the prosecution, and tbe objection was sustained. E. C. Osborne, deputy county clerk, testified as to tbe amount of money in troduced in the evidence. 8. de Noel, of Visalia, the next wit neaa, aaid be caw tbe defendant in Visa lia at dinner tbe day after the robbery. Sontag eaid he was on tbe train at the time, on hia way from San Francisco, and that tbe paasengers were badly Beared. He told witness that he sat in tbe next coach to the express, and tbat be did not get out of the car during the robbery. E. Ward Bradley, of Viaalia, driver of a bus from the hotel to the depot, told bow he met the train from Goshen that connected with the robbed train. The priaoner rode in the bus with tbe wit neaa to tbe hotel. They went into the saloon together, and Sontag told him be waa on the train that waa robbed, and other matters connected with tbe robbery. He alao ex hibited a screw ■ head that be said had been blown out of the car. He told the witneaa that be waa in a passen ger coach, and that he went*out at the rear end of tbe coach. Witneaa caw John Sontag in Viaalia aoout three hours after that, about 9 o'clock in the morning. He laat aaw George Sontag about two weeks previous to the rob bery, and George eaid be was going to San Francisco. Louis Ncsa, a barkeeper in the Palace hotel in Visalia, said he caw the defen dant in the bar room of tbe hotel on the morning of the tra'n robbery, about 5 o'clock. Sontag said he waa on a pas senger coach, and went out on the plat form. Deputy Sheriff George W. Witty, of Visalia, was asked aa to what he knew about the physical condition of John Sontag, and Attorney Cald well, tor the defense, objected strenuously. He aaid an attempt was being made to make the defendant a vicarious sacrifice for the Bins of hia brother John. The objection being over ruled, witness said be saw John Sontag a few days before tbe robbery, walking with the aid of a Cane and limping. "State if you caw John Sontag in the company oi tbe defendant after the robbery," Baid the diatrict attorney. Tbe witness answered be aaw tbe de fendant and hia brother at the house of Chris Evans, AngUßt Ist, between noon and 1 o'clock. When witness entered the honae, he told the prisoner he had heard he waa on the train at the time of the robbery, and that the sheriff de sired to aak him some questions rela tive to the affair. Tbe dependant hesi tated, then said: "All right; I will go." Tbe defendant thereupon accompanied Will Smith and the witness to the sher iff's office. Witneaa admitted that be went to Evans' bouse for the purpoae of arresting George Sontag. Chria Evana waa in town at the time, and John Son tag was in the house with the defend ant. He offered no resistance. Charles F. Johnson, a Visalia consta ble, testified tbat John Sontag waa at home a few days before the robbery. He walked with a perceptible limp, and was quite lame. On cross-examination, witneaa admitted that he was not sure he saw John Sontag 15 daya before the robbery, or earlier than that time. The court adjourned until 9 o'clock to morrow morning.

The Iteault of Finding a Man Among Bis Chickens—A Fight for a Be volver—The Police Looking the Assailant. About 10 o'clock last night Francisco Uruchurta beard a commotion among hia chickena on hia premises, 911 East Eigth atreet, near Maple avenue. He went out into tbe yard, and, aeeing a man, asked bim what business he had on tbe premiaes. Tbe iellow gave an inaolent reply, and aeked Franciaco if it waa any of hia business. Francisco re plied that he had a right to know who was on hia premiaes and for what purpoae. The fellow, who, Francisco Bay a, ia a ne f;ro named Frank Smilet, waa ordered to cave, which he refuted to do, and at once drew a five-shooter, self-cocking re volver, and was in tbe act of shooting Franciaco, when tbe latter caught the negro by the right collar with his left hand, and, aa he nabbed the revolver with his right band, the negro succeeded in firing, the bullet barely missing Fran cisco. Then, as Franciaco aubaequently atated at the central police station, a struggle ensued. "I still held him by tbe collar with the left hand, and the revolver with tbe right hand, and then I pu 1 my knees against him and tried to throw him down; just then he tried to fire again, and the hammer of the re volver caught on my hand, making this wound." Franciaco showed his hand, which waa bleeding from the wound. While Franciaco and the negro were struggling for the possession of tbe pis tol, Mr. V. Lelong, a neighbor, wbo was passing at tbe moment, was attracted to thie Bcene by tbe cries oi a Bister oi Francisco. Lelong ran to tbe spot, seized the negro and demanded that he give up the revolver. "The negro aeked me if I was an officer," said Le long, "and when I aaid no, be replied that be would not give it up; we then began struggling, and finally we took it away from him ; we started to the sta tion with him, but in the darkness and confusion he ran away and escaped; and here ia hia pistol tbat we took from him," concluded Lelong aa be handed to Clerk Bean a large revolver. One barrel bad been discharged ; tbere waa blood upon the hammer where it had been imbedded in Francisco's hand, and the shell ejector waa coneiderably bent, showing the effects of tbe bard atruggle for tbe possession of the revolver. Clerk Bean asked Franciaco and Le long if they were sure tbat the man waa the negro Smilet. They both replied that they were cure of it, and further more, that while they were searching for him after hia escape they found a barkeeper to whom Smilet had atated that he had ahot at a man and wanted to get away. "This pistol has been in here before," aaid Clerk Bean, looking at the revolver. On looking at the record of arreata it was found tbat Smilet had been released from the central police station yester day morning, having served a ten days' sentence for carrying concealed wea pons. Officer Farmer was detailed to make a search for Smilet. Crooked Registration in Detroit. Detroit, Oct. 26.—The board of regis tration began ita sessions today.

The Chicago Tribune, which supports the protection candidates without sup porting high tariff McKinleyism, has discontinued for tho present its tariff re form arguments. Here ia one of the frank admissions of this great Repub lican journal tuudo before the campaign began: A comparatively small percentage of the immigration to the United States comes from free trade England, and even that is made up largely from the classes not protected by the tariff and who cannot be regarded as seeking hero the benefits of high protectionism. Skilled operatives in the iron and steel and cotton and woolen industries find little inducement to leave their employ ment in free trade England to seek higher wages in tho United States. On full inquiry they find the promise of high wages delusive and that the sup posed advantage is fully offset by the increased cost of living. If any such disproportion between tho condition of English and American operatives in pro tected industries as is claimed by ultra protectionists existed it could not fail to cause a flood of immigration of skilled operatives from England to the United States, whereas our immigration comes chiefly from the high protection coun tries of continental Europe, and is made np of people who can enjoy no protection Skookum Soot Grows Stops I Strength. fSw! !

The fierce animosity some ardent Housekeepers exhibit toward dust seema amusingly exaggerated to quieter souls. To the true dust hater no family trouble or family joy is paramount. With hei mouth she may mourn William's Borrow or exult over Edith's prosperity. Hei eyes are roving. They spy the bit ol Huff upon the carpet, and she checks her sobs to pick it up. The recital of Edith's happiness is interrupted while she walks across the floor to wipe off a table's edge or to lament tho difficulty of keeping a room clean when the win dows are so often opened. Births, deaths or marriages may come and go in her household. Not one of these disturbs her equanimity half so much as having her sweeping day post poned; tbey are all of less importance than ■ the discovery that her dreaded enemy has gained a foothold in some un suspected corner. An enthusiast of this sort one evening, with a tragic air, requested her husband to accompany her to an upper chamber. Tho tired lawyer was impressed by het solemn manner, and heavily climbed the necessary stairs. The lady led him into a room and pointed sternly to a table. "Look at that," she said indignantly. "Three times this-week I have told Mary to dust it. I believe she neglects it purposely. I am completely disheart ened." The lawyer looked at the table and sighed. "My dear," he replied, "today I have had to deal with a murderer and two burglars. I have also examined two wife beateis and one child stealer, but anything like the moral depravity of Mary I confess I never saw before— never!"
