The winter has been exceptionally favorable and all have come through in fine shape. Stock men are very optimistic at present. The Chicago market is on the boom and the prospects of high prices on fall range cattle are most excellent. "There is an acknowledged shor' age in the corn belt and this tact can not fail to exert a favorable influence on future sales. The export demand remains good and the outlet and shipping account to the eastern mar kets is heavy at the present time. "The country through which we have came is more prosperout than I have ever seen at at this season of the year. "Everywhere we were most hospit ably entertained. The people of the west this year are all feeling good, as they anticipate a favorable season. Their optimism has been reflected on our own Ilarty and the trip so far has been fully as great a pleasure trip as one of business."

Auburn, Cal., April 14.-Adolph Weber was yesterday sentenced to be hanged June 30 for the murder of his mother. His attorneys made a motion for a new trial and introduced a num. ber of affidavits, including one from the prisoner, relating to evidence giv en and to alleged errors during the trial. The court denied the motion and the prisoner's demeanor changed perceptibly at the decision. He turned pale when ordered to stand up and re fused to do so, saying, "What for?" Despite the arguments of his coun sel, he said he wanted "that lock" pro duced, alluding to the lock of the bath room found in the ruins, and said to be evidence that the older Weber was locked in the room. When Under Sheriff May tapped him on the shoul der, however, he stood up and the court said that judgment would be punishment by suffering death. The sheriff was then directed to deliver him into the custody of the warden at Folsom, to be hanged June 30. Attorney Tuttle asked for a modi fication of the order to allow Weber to stay in jail here pending the per fecting of the appeal and it was grant ed. Thirty days were also granted to prepare the statement. During the afternoon the statement was made by Mr. Tuttle that the agreement to :settle the bank case was off, owing to a hitch in the negotiations and that as a motion for a change of venu would be made, he desired the matter of trial on the 18th to be settled, so as to no tify the witnesses. It was decided by consent that on the 18th a new date for the trial would be set. No mercury, no minerals, no danger in Hollister's Rocky Mountain Tea. The greatest family tonic known.
