U. S. SENATOR S. M. WHITE.
That is the Title He Should Receive This Winter. The DistingTiiKlied Candidate Shows That Ilia Claims Are Excellent. The Result of His Ti-fn to the North. Feoplo All Over the State Strongly Favor lllin — The News papers All With Him. Ihe next United States senator from California, Hon. Stephen M. White of this city, has returned from the north well satisfied with the prospects of his election at the coming session of the legislature. He has been the constant recipient of calls from numberless friends interested in his cause, and every indication ia given tbat the people throughout the state, to a great extent irrespective of party, are heartily in favor of his selection. "I have met with most pleasant en couragement from fil quarters," Mr. White said yesterday to a Herald re porter, "and I see every prospect that I have now two-thirds of tbe votes, and perhnps more. "I find, moreover, that the little talk that has been circulated, of any section al feeling in thfl north against me, is all nonsense. Tbe northern Democrats are as warm in their support as any of my immediate party friends in thia part of the Btate. In fuct, the Democratic press all over California, outside of San Fran cisco with two exceptions, is strongly in my favor. Here is a list of papers which I have noticed have declared in favor of niy candidacy," and Mr. White showed the reporter a list, which included the following-named journals: Placer Herald, Auburn; Humboldt Standard, Eureka; Times, Visalia; Evening News, Modeßto; Democrat, Woodland, Yolo county; Kern Valley Democrat, Bakersfield; Mercury, Oro vilie; Mariu County Tocsin, Stockton Mail, Fresno Fxpositor, Colusa Sun, Watsouville Rustler, Grass Valley Union, San Bernardino Courier, San Diegan-Suu, Sacramento News, Benicia New Era, Ukiah Dispatch-Democrat, Independent, Quincy, Plumas county ; Antioch Ledger. "To show you the feeling towards ms in the north," continued Mr. White, "in a letter to me dated November 30th Mr. McLaughlin, tbe chairman of the Democratic committeeof Plumas county, says: 'It seems that they (referring to certain persons who are opposing Mr. White) will endeavor to scatter the im pression that Northern California is agaim you, or in otherwords, if possible convince our people that you are not the . man they want. Now it is not possible for the public sentiment in your own home to be more pronouncedly in your favor than it is in all parts of the nqrth where I have been. Ttie people hope and ex pect that if the legislature iB Dem ocratic you will be our next senator. I would suggest that you take some stepe to bring out an expression of opinion from tbe chairmen and secretaries of the various county central committees in the northern counties. If I can do anything for you please command me.' "Now, more than that," continued the senator, "I have with me all three of the candidates for speaker and all the congressmen-elect of the Btate. I am glad to say that my prospects of success are first rate. I shall go north next week again, and get right into the har ness." Mr. White is in' perfect health and is in every way prepared to make a win ning tight. THEY LIKE TO VIEW CORPSES. Morbid Veople Who Knjuy the M;lu. of a Morj£iie. Ia the general run of humanity there ia a morbid strata, audjit is very largely developed in the great majority. Tbe morgue of a city is the place where this side of human nature comes to the surface. A corpse is brought in and im mediately a mob swarm; nt tho door, rushing, squeezing and clamoring for admittance so as to gloat over the hide ous features of the dead person. Not one in the mob knew the deceased, but their main desire is to gloat upon the cold, clammy face of the dead. There ia something perverted in the composition of humanity that prompts such a strange desire. If the deceased is a suicide, or has met with a violent death, the anxiety to get a glimpse of the corpse is greater, and if it is mangled and reeking with blood, the •human vultures gloat their eyes upon the corpse— r feaßt for their diseased minda —and neither it northern selves were human beings. In tbe cities of the east tbe morgue is at the city prison, and in the smaller towns it is nt tho connty jail. At the central police station all casualties are repotted, and naturally the morgue can easily be found by those having business connected with it, and an attendant is on duty at all hours of tbe day and night. Ouly those are permitted to see a corpse who are relatives or particular friends of the deceased, and an unknown corpse is viewed by ull the members of the police force for the purpose of iden tification, and by no others, unless for special reasons. Frequently the corpse is photographed, but always a descrip tion is taken, together with the manner of death, which is filed away for refer ence should inquiries be made. Often these descriptions are printed in circu lar form, and by that means the mys tery of a death is frequently solved. RAN AWAY WITH THE HORSE. Young Frank Andrews Skips from Ills Keneftictur. Frank Andrews, an ungrateful youth, aged about 15 years, ran away yesterday morning with a horse belonging to Mr. John Stevens, at Cornpton. The horee is described as a bay and tbe saddle new. The boy was seen yesterday at the Nadeau Grove heading for this city. About one year ago Mr. Stevenß took the boy from the Orphans' home. The youngster used this horse in riding to school a few miles distant from Cornp ton, and yesterday he ran away with the horse. Mlecp on 1.0/t Mile.

Interesting Facts About a Widely Lnrtd Woman. On Saturday afternoon, just as the winter sun was sinking into the sea, the great gardener whose master hand and brain devised Ihe beauties of Eden, transplanted another Rose to the gar dens of the land immortal. Though a great sufferer for some months pieced ing her death her buoyant spirit kept, her so full of courage that the news of her demise fell like a heavy blow upon her legion of friends. Rose Vincentia Kelly was born in Ire land and came to America at 2 yeara of age. Her parents eettled in Ten nessee and both died there a few years later. The family in whose charge the orphan girl was left removed lo Leaven worth, Kan., and thence to Helena, Mont. There she received the final touches to her education and became the highly polished lady that our citi zens bave known in the last 20 years. Deeming the rigorß of a Montana win ter too severe for her, she came to L r m Angelts in the winter of 1872. One of her earliest friends here was the first wife of Governor John G. Downey, who lost her life in 1881 at the frightful holo caust at Tehachepi; and after six years of a widower's weeds, the sturdy old gentleman led to the altar his late wife's most intimate friend. There were four sunlit yearß tbat followed thia second marriage, and the summer evenings on tbe porch of the modest old homestead opposite the Westminster saw them sur rounded by a legion of friends. On Sun days tbe big family carriage, with its dashing pair of chestnuts, whirled them down to Redondo in the morning and back home to dinner as the evening Bhudows grew longer. The old man's twilight years were full of tranquil en joyment, after an active and busy life. There was no prouder presence that walked these streets. In the midst of it all the fell stroke caai"- down upon him. The fatal mal ady first became known to him about the very height of the midsummer's glow. For months he kept it a pro found secret, even from his moat intimate friends, but as the sum mer waned and autumn stole on apace, the truth had to come out. The grace ful, genial lady, whose sunny nature diffused about iter everywhere a glow of radiance, was doomed to death by a dis ease as ruthless as the wolf and as un erring as the compaFS needle. Four painful months of heroic sufferinpf went slowly by aud then she passed from death into life. It is not in the homes of wealth that, this earnest aud Bincero woman will be missed the most, but in the homes of those who suffered the pangs nf ill requited toil and whom her kindly na ture was ever ready to relieve. She was a deeply religious woman and one who realised that the mission of religion is to make mankind cheerful. About her everywhere she cast the summer sheen of her bright nature and left the impress of her earnest soul. Fortified with a sublime courage, she calmly met the king of terrors without a shudder of fear; aid like the trusting, heroic woman that she was, passed onward and upward to a long-deferred reward.

The Mlud Header and Some of Hi* Exploits. Alexander J. Mcls'or Tyndall, the well-known professor of hypnotism, whose experiments in this city have from time to time created quite a sensa tion, will, alter his tests tonight aud to morrow night at Turnverein hull, pro ceed to Fall River, Mass., where he will attempt the expeiimeut of solving the mystery which at present attaches to tho now celebrated Borden murder case. In an interview last evening Professor Tyndalrspoke in a very sanguine man ner to a Hbbald reporter of the possi bilities which the science of hypnotism possesses as an aid to the prosecution of criminals, at the same time affording protection to those unjustly accused of any crime. "It is fair for all," he remarked, "and it is only a matter of time until the practice will become part and parcel of all legal investigations, where the truth is searched for under peculiar and un satisfactory conditions, pereonal or otherwise." "You believe, then," he was asked, "that if a person is a criminal he can not escape detection by his own volun tary confession when once he is placed under the influence of a competent mind reader?" "Moßt decidedly I do. He cannot possibly conceal any of the facts or cir cumstances pertaining to his actions in any matter, be it specific or not. Dur ing the trance his inner life will be made public under the influence of the experienced and competent operator, and by no other means known to Bcience can thia be done. "I have bad considerable experience with cases of the kind throughout the Pacific coast, and many of my most in teresting experiments have been made iv California." The professor referred to his test ex periment in this city sometime ago with the criminal Dawßon, alias Wilde, who, by feigning insanity, escaped punish ment and was cent to an asylum for the insane from which place he had the sanity to plan a successful escape. Said Professor Tyndall: "I was taken to his cell aud found him asleep. After looking at him I con cluded at once that I could control him. I awoke him, and just as he was about to get up, after making a few passes, I said to him, 'Lie still, you are going to sleep again.' "1 then told him to get out of his bunk, and when still in a trance he did so. Tben he told me of his life at Los Angeles, and where he saw his pal, Georgo VVilson, whom he said was then in Santa Monica. He tben began to give a description of Wilson's personal appearaoce, his age, etc., and, in fact, answered all questions of the kind per taining to this subject and told of the manner of life led by him- elf and Wil son, and other matters criminating to both. Subsequent facts have proved my tests and that this man Dawson, or Wilde, was not insane at the time," concluded Professor Tyndall. Guaranteed Cure.

A Flowing Well Which Threatened to Wnfli Away the Kallroad — The Water Rises Four I'ett from an Eight-Inch Pipe. We learn from Mr. T. B. Wilkinson, ageiuof the Southern Pacific railroad at this place, says the Yuma Sentinel, that success has at last crowned the efforts of the company to obtain artesian water on the* desert. On Tuesday last, when the great well at Walker's station, 106 miles west of Yuma, had reached a depth of 500 feet, a bountiful stream of excellent water was struck, which in stantly rose 4 feet above the surface and ran off down the desert as freely as if it had always done so. Such was the flow of water that the company was obliged at once to protect its roadbed from being washed away. Passengers passing by yesterday and the day before say that the stream filled a good sized irrigating ditch. The water is clear, coH and excellent for drinking and cooking purposes. Engineer W, B. Story, jr., and other officials of the company consider this as one of the most promising and valuable discoveries of the company for years, aa it settles the question as to securing artesian water for irrigation and other puipoees on the great deeert adjacent to Indio and Salton. It also confirms the ! opinion of a gentleman who was in Yuma two years ago, who had been con nected with the artesian well system of the English government in India for 13 years, and who said : "I am confident that an abundant supply of artesian water can be bad at almost any point in the Salton desert, or in the section lying adjacent to Yuma, and you will not have to bore 1000 feet to get it." Tbe Walter's well is eight inches in diameter and the water rises from three to four ieet above the surface. The com pany will now prosecute tbe work on its proposed wells in ether sections. If it proves that good water can be bad in other sections of the desert, it will nut the ditch nnd canal builders on their metal to compete with this supply of water for irrigation purposes. , The Rulings Made Yesterday in the Su- There was very little business trans acted in tbe variou? departments of tho BUDerior court yesterday.

Editors Herald: Permit me to use your columns to refute the malicioua at tack upon my character in yesterday's Times, and to offer the following affi davit and letter in proof of my asser tions. I had been informed on Satur day that $500 had been offered for any native son who would make an affidavit against my character, but with no tak ers. I informed Mr. Taylor, city editor of the Times, of tbe facts, and asking the privilege of replying in the same is sue and paying for the samu at line rates. He referred the matter to Colonel Otis, and I was assured by him later that it was all right, and that I would receive "fair play." How much a promise from the Timeß is worth can be seen in yesterday's issue. At the time, two years ago, when ttiis attack was made upon me, I was employed by the Times ; it was investi gated by them, and the result was tbat 1 continued in their employ for over a year, and .esigned to accept a more lu crative position.

Why Hat the State Department Diso beyed the instruction* of Congress? Washington, Dec. 5, —An interesting document, on the subject of war vessels on the lakes, will be sent to the senate by the state department duriug the week. The information was asked for by a resolution passed in the early part of the last Beßßiou, and considerable sur prise was expressed that a reply was not received before congress adjourned. The object of the resolution was to make the state department show cause why the act passed in IS6O, requiring notice to be given to Great Britain of the desire of the United States to abrogate the treaty regarding the number of vessels to be kept on the lakes, bad not been carried out. The reply of the department will be a basis for congressional legislation looking to the modification of the treaty which will admit of construction of war vessels by firms operating on the lakes. The state department will be accused of evading the Joint resolution cilliugfor the abrogation of the treaty. There are some people who think the treaty has been abrogated. There is no doubt that such a resolution was passed and it is ,on record. Notice was given Great Britain, in accordance therewith, of the intention of this government to abro gate the treaty. What followed is a mystery outsideof the diplomatic world. It is understood the statement will show that the notice issued under the act was withdrawn within a few days after being issued, and that, for reasons then existing, both couutries ngreed to consider the treaty still in force. It will be further shown that the treaty is so regarded to the present day by both governments, notwithstanding the act of 1866. Silver Purchase*.
