BRIGHTON JUNCTION TRAGEDY.
The Death of Miss Ayres Still Shrouded in Mystery. Engineer Jeffreys Charged with the Foul Crime. Be Stoutly Maintains His lonoeenee lv the Face of Strong Circumstan tial Evidence—Pacific Coast News. By the Associated Press. Sacramento, Jan. 3.—Railroad officers Burke and True today brought here George Jeffreys, the railroad engineer who is suspected of complicity in the murder of Mies Ayres, the Brighton station telegraph operator. The reason that Jeffreys was arrested is that he and Mies Ayres were married some months ago, according to the rec ords in San Francisco, although he has a wife and family in Oakland. It ia said that he and the deceased quarreled fre quently. Jeffreys was interviewed at length by District Attorney Ryan. He maintains his innocence of tbe crime, and says he can prove where he was in the city dur ing the few hours between his arrival and his departure on the night of the tragedy. He also denies the alleged marriage with Miss Ayres, and declares that if any such record existß it is a fraud, perpetrated by some enemy to get him into trouble. He says the woman was enamored of him, and kept writing letters urging him to abandon hit; wile and wed her by contract. He wili, how ever, be held pending the inquest. Many are beginning to believe now that the woman shot heVeelf, and in doing so set fire to her clothing, which smouldered from about midnight un til 4 in the morning, when the fire broke out. As stated yesterday, a doctor paaeing there at 2 a. m. emelled burning clotb, and one cart ridge in Miss Ayres' pistol was found to have been discharged before the fire dis charged the others.

Washington, Jan. 3.—The supreme court today rendered a decision in the caee of the state of lowa against the stale of Illinois, to eettle tbe boundary line in the Mississippi river between tbe two states. Nine bridges crocs the river between the states, and the suit waa brought in order that each might tax only thoee parts of them within their respective boundaries. lowa con tended that the boundary rune through the middle of the main body of the'river, regardless ol the steamboat channel, and that the measurement is to be taken at the normal stage of the water.

In the opinion rendered today by Jus tice Field the court takes the Illinois view'of the matter, holding that the true boundary ia the middle of the main channel. The court ordered a commis sion of three to designate tbe line on eaoh bridge and to delineate the same on mapß.

Washington, Jan. 3. — Weather crop bulletin: While the deficiency in tem perature for the month of December was greatest in the northwest, the cold wns relatively more severe throughout the southern states.

Washington, Jan. 3. —Some specu lating is indulged in with regard to tbe mission of H. I. Bushnell of Nebraska to Panama. Bushnell'e mission has no relation, remote or iutimate, to the Panama Canal concession, and it may be said the state department has not the slightest idea of acquiring the concession for the United Stateß. whether the French government relinquishes it or not.

Shii-ving the Kcartl in III;: Bin. Peter the Great thought to civilise hi* ravages By making t hem shaVe und im posed a tax of 100 rubles <>n (he wealthy and middle classes and a copeck oh peasants and laborers, • Now it was a superstition among tho poorer people, that no beardless son of Adam could ever enter heaven, and being oblige*] to part with their beards the grata ma jority treasured up their hairs to be buried with their bodies. In dealing with his soldiers the great Peter enlisted the aid of the priests, who cunningly pointed out the fact that they were go ing t<> fight the bearded Turk and that their patron, St. Nicholas, would 1m un able to distinguish them from their ene mies unless they sacrificed their beards. This was all right, and the beards of tho beloved Russians went down before the razor in deference to St. Nicholas. But, unluckily for the priests, the next little war happened to be with the Swedes, who wore no beards, and thus it was that the Russian soldiers de manded to bo allowed to abjure the razor, so that tho holy Nicholas might have no difficulty in arranging for their protection.—English Illustrated Maga zine.

Gov't Report Baking ABSOLUTELY PURE DIRT STEADILY ADVANCING. Pleasant Condition or Affairs in Real Kstate Lines. A marked improvement in the state of the real estate market in Los Angelee has been observed for some time, and in order to determine the extent of it a Hkkald reporter was detailed yesterday to make an investigation among the real estate dealers. The general opinion among them is that the condition of affairs here is very much better and more encouraging than it was last year at this period, that real estate transac tions have acquired a healthy tone, that prices are firm, sales on the increase, and that every thing indicates for the near future a very solid era of prospetity. The purchase and sale of land for purposes of speculation has been completely dropped, and transac tidns are entirely confined to people who wish to secure homes and to immediate ly improve the acreage which they buy. It will be seen, too, from the expres sions of some dealers, that the demand for homes within the city limits, even at some distance from the center of town, has assumed proportions never Known in the last few years, which makes it not only possible for them to place on the market tracts which have hitherto been neglected, but will assure the sale of Jots in a very short time. It would not be possible to publish . the statements of ail the real estate op erators interviewed, but as they are all hopeful and corroborative of those given below, the reader will be enabled by these to judge of the condition of real estate here at this time of the year and as in comparison with the same period a year ago.' Geo. A. Dobinson of Dobinson & Vel ter, when seen on the subject had the following to say: The real estate mar ket shows considerable improvement over last year, and the outlook is decid edly more encouraging. Some very im portant sales have taken place during the past year, and in addition there have been a large number of transac tions which indidate that the people have faith in the future of the city. The amount of money that has been put into improvements is also good evidence of the faith that capitalists have in the stability of this city as a commercial and residential center. Sales are larg est in the country, and are for actual improvements. As compaivd with this time last year there is a vastly improved feeling. The advent of manufacturing establishments is another instance ol the faith of capital in this section, f rices for real estate have reached tbe bottom line and there is a tendency to an advance rather than to a falling off at present. We regard this as about the best time to invest, because the mar ket seems to have an upward tendency. We (eel moie encouraged today than we have been for a long time. Nolan it Smith—The real estate busi- . ness is in a healthier condition now than it has ever been. We are selling a good deal of property, principally acreage, and prices are a great deal firmer than heretofore. We sell consid erable ofauge land, principally towards Fullerton and in the foothills in the di rection of Ulendale. Calls for city property, with us at present, are con fined to cheap lots upon which build ings on the installment plan are »reeted by tbe purchasers for themselves. To show you that there is considerable de mand for that kind of property we are now preparing an advertisement for the Herald for the sale of a number of lots on Pico Heights, on particularly easy termß and with some valuable induce ments, and we are satisfied thai theße lots will be disposed of in a very short time, without the slightest trouble. S. K. Lindley—Business is much bet ter than last year, and there is more in quiry for real estate. People buy for improvement only, not for speculation a3 of yore. Last year wss very dull, but now I assure you that the outlook is quite encouraging. Lands, of which I am the agent, in Mast Whittier, are selling rapidly and all for improvement. Where last year not an acre was sold, whole streets are now dtspreed of. Grider & Dow—We flDd that in acre property actual sales are at least 50 per cent better than they were at this time last year. We have seven distinct sales today, not exchanges, mind yon, but actual sales. We have a tract now that has lain dormant all this time, no body wanted anything to do with it, but now we are going to put it on the mar ket and offer it for sale in the Herald next Sunday. Prices remain just about the same as last year for acre property, but in certain portions of the city they bave advanced. There is no such thing as speculation now, ail land that is bought being for immediate improve ment. Just this time next year Los An geles will be right in it, mark my words. M. F. ODea—The market's tone is de cidedly better, generally epeaking. There is not the urgency to sell that there has been. Pricea are, slightly better than last year. My experience is that city and r.creage saleß are about equal. Cuddy ifcßtoughton—The eaiee as com pared with last, year are very much im pr ved. Pricea have increased a little became a great deal of mortgaged prop erty has been sold off. There is consid erable demand for acreage for immediate improvement, and money ia easy. JLoat.

Parties in thia city who sent a general assortment, of Southern California vege tables to friends in Detroit via the Santa Fe route, have received congratulations, and the following is an abstract of a letter from one of the most prominent citizens of that city : "We have been reveling the pact few days in luscious strawberries, Buceulent corn, peas, cauliflower and toothsome tomatuee, and the finest celery we have ever had on our table.

"I am greatly pleased to have such a chief assistant," raid Chief Thorpe yes terday afternoon. "Mr. Truman is a man of wide experience.
