Jervis refused to make a state ment, and died about 12 o'alock, five hours after the shooting. The matter is shrouded in mystery, as both are spoken of as quiet men.

Tho murdered man bad just prepared a home for his wife and son, who will arrive in this city to night from Clinton, Mo. There is con siderable indignation on the streets about the crime, and threats are made that lynch law will be resorted to, though tbe officers are hopeful that there is no cause for alarm, and that the law will take its course. Coleman now claims that the shooting was accidental. TO BE BRIt KEN UP. An 'Old Favorite Steamer That Outlived Her Usefulness.

Railroad Companies Determine to Pay No .Mori: i ommlnisui. New York, March 30.—The Joint Executive Committee of the Truuk Lines and Central Traffic Association held an important meeting at Commissioner Fiok's office in this city to-day, at which the end sought consists of noth ing less than the complete abolishment of commissions. This decision was reached unanimously, and by suoh a large number of lines that it is believed thut it will prove more effective than any ot the previous attempts in tbe same direction, which were put into force only on the trunk lines. This abuse, which began more than thirty five years ago, has grown to such enor mous proportions that it is estimated it is now costing the railways of the United States, directly and indirectly, more than $5,000,000 annually, and to a great extent it has been tbe incites by which the ticket scalpers have been built up. The importance of this move ment may be estimated when is is un derstood that the various, associations agreeing to abolish ticket commissioners comprise the Central Traffic Association, composed of all important lines east ol Chicago and Si. Louis and we.-t of the western terminus of the trunk lines, the territory of which includes all the lines between Buffalo, Salamanca and Wheel ing on the west and New York, Phila delphia and Baltimore on the east; the Southern Passenger Association, which comprises all important lines east of the Mississippi nnd south of the Ohio and the Potomac; New England Association, comprising all important railway lines in New England The agreement is made binding by another clause, providing that neither of the agreeing companies will act as agent for connecting lines who continue to pay their agents com missions.

While the train was making the run between Clark's Mills and this city, which only occupies seven minutes, a party of men boarded it between the baggage and express cars, shot the messenger aud attempted rob bery, but with what result or bow se verely the man is injured could not be learned, as a stop of only three minutes was made here and all was confusion when the train reached Frankfort, nine miles east of here. Lake was attended by physicians. The would-be robbers escaped, but it is believed that they se cured no plunder. FOR DISABLED VOLUNTEERS. The Home will he Located Near Los Angeles or Napa.

The nominating committee of fifty, appointed by the second Democratic convention, met this evening and held two lengthy sessions. At first, after Dewitt C. Cre gier and John King, members of the committee, had declined tho proffer of the chief place on the ticket, Congressman Frank Lawler started a new boom for Harrison. As the latter was not present and no one was authorized to speak for him. no action was taken on Lawlor's proposal. John H. McAvoy, a wealthy brewer, who whs present as one of the committee of fifly was urged to »c3ept. He did not accept outright and the com mittee took it for granted that he would accept, notwithstanding his protestations that be did not want tbe office. A re cess was taken, and iv the meantime McAvoy held a consultation with Mayor Harrison, at which the latter assured him of his heartiest support. McAvoy after much hesitation wrote a letter de clining, giving as a reason that his busi ness engagements would not permit him to accept. When the letter was read to the committee President Krrn, of th* Cook county Democracy advocated adjourn ment nine, die, leaving the Republican and United Labor party tickets the only ones in the field. Congressman Lawler protested vigorously and again cham pioned Carter Harrison. Lawyer Harry Rubins followed in the same vein and then moved the appointment of a oom mittee of five to hunt a candidate. The motion was carried with a whoop. To morrow evening the committee will re port the result of its search. A Proposed ordnance roundry. Washington, Maroh 30.—Secretary Whitney is considering the plans sub mitted by the board appointed to ascer tain the amount of plant required to equip the Washington navy yard as an ordnance foundry. He has be>'n in con sultation with the ordnance officers and it U probable that the plans ultimately decided upon will be made public in a short time.

The fire boss, Little j din, and a miner named James Morgan were burled into wbat is known as the dump, a spot in which the water from the level accumulates. Three doors were also thrown into the dump. An effort was at once made to rescue Lewis and Owens, the miners who had gone luto tbe mine with the fire boss, but ifterdamps prevented it. This after noon their mutilated bodies were found and conveyed to their homes. THE WHITE PLUMED JIM. The Object of a Little Hand-Shak ing; Ovation at Terre Haute, Terre Haute, Ind., March 30.—The Vandalia train to which Mr. Blame's private car was attached arrived here at 3:35, one hour and twenty-two minutes late. No efiort had been made to give Blame a reoeption, yet there were four or five hundred people at the depot. The crowd surrounded Blame's car and began to call "Blame." Blame appeared at the rear end of the car, and was re ceived with cheers. Hej|said: •'Gentle men, it gives me pleasure to see you all here. lamon an entirely private jour ney, and I simply desire to express my thanks for the courtesy of this call."

Boston, March 30.—An eleotrioally lighted train, the first in the United ( States, left here for New York. FOREIGN. The Increasing- Demand makes New Urounde Necessary. Few people have an idea of the extent of the Mailing industry of the world, and especially of the Pacific Coast. It is a well known fact that the old fishing beds in the Atlantic do not keep pace with the constant and inoreasing draw npon them, and a time has oome when new waters must be searched to supply the demand. The tubing grounds in the Paoifio have not as yet been called upon to furnish its Proportion of tbe ti.- h pro. duot of the, world, and as it is a large field to work upon, it ia no wonder that the attention of those interested should be turned in that direction. A large fleet of vessels leaves California each year, but there ia room for many more, and there is no reason why the industry should not become one of the most im portant of the coast. It only requires enterprise and push. The field is large and only waiting for opening on a large scale. The fishery industry helped greatly to build up Massachusetts ; and other Eastern Coast States and why not California with its large coast line? It seems strange to wander into the markets in Los Argelea and te see Eastern fnh on sale and bringing higher prices than Pacific coast fish. Of course the aalnron branch cannot have any competition on the Atlantic side, bui it has been demonstrated that the Paoifio abounds in codfish equal in qual ity if not superior to those captured off the coast of Newfoundland. The fishing industry, according to the annual report of the American Fish Bureau at Glouces ter, for last year, gives employment to about 700,000 men and about 150,000 vessels. The total amount of the annual product is about 1,500,000 tons, or 3,000.000.000 pounds of fish, equal to 150,000 carloads, which would load a train 9:0 miles long. The United States has 101,684 fishermen and 6605 vessels of over five tons burthen. The largest fishing port in the world is Grinsby, England, with 768 vessels. France em ploys 126,000 persons in sea and coast fisheries, and the value of the an nual proceeds is $16,660,000. Nor way produces for export $11, --900,000, and for home con sumption about $4,000,000. Italy produces $9,520,000, Russia $16,600,000 and Germany receives $18,326,000 an. ' nnally in fish, two-thirds of which are herring. In the United States the mackerel fisheries first made a good showing in 1819 when the pack of Mas sachusetts amounted to 100,111 barrels. Iv 1831 the largest pack in any one year occurred, when 384,548 barrels , were prepared for market. So far the mackersl has not found its way into Paoifio waters in any great extent, but ! it is a migratory fish, for while in one ' series of years it is found in large quan- ' tities in one part of the North Atlantic ' and its bays, from some unknown cause ' another year or series of years it will be ' found hundreds of miles away, conse- 1 quently there is hope of placing it in ' the Pacific if search is made. The largest and most valuable are the ' Western Atlantic fishing grounds. These 1 banks extend from Cape Cod to the east- ' -era coast of Newfoundland aud wiusti- 1 tute a chain of submerged plateaus. 1 These supply the United States and other nations more or less with salt ' fish. As yet tbe tisheri sof the Pacific ocean do not produce enough to make any impression on the market, but the time is coming when the principal sup ply will be drawn from its waters. The ' area of tbe Atlantic bank is 73,123 i square miles. t Last season was remarkable for tbe scarcity of nearly all kinds of salt and fresh water fish in both Atlantic, inland a and Pacific sections of the country. ( The markets have shown a scarcity of f mackerel, blnefish, herring, alwives, sal- . mon and p Hook. Quotations for all of these have been higher all over the < world, and in salmon theie h s been quite i a corner in San Francisco. The amount ( of mackerel taken was the smallest known since 1843. and with three ex ceptious since 1818. Codfish were fairly < plentiful aud halibut showed a small in- i crease.

Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald Rome, March 30.—Mgr.

Berlin, March 30.—Authentic infor mation has been received from St. Petersburg that a fresh attempt was made upon the Czar's life at the Gats china Palace yesterday. The Czar was not injured. AN OUTRAUE IN RUSSIA. Killed For Kef uelnsr to Fart With Hie Wealth. St. Petersburg, March 30. —A wholesale merchant of St. Petersburg, reputed to be worth millions, has been shot and killed by a man to whom he refused to give 80,000 rubles towards the Nihilist fund. The murderer has been arrested. Other Russian capitalists are fearful of suffering a similar fate. They are receiving letters threatening them with immediate death if th-y do net comply with demands to furnish money for the "common cause." • COMPLAINING TARS. They Attribute the Defeat of the Dauntless to Her Owner. London, March 30. —A dispatch to the Sportsman from Queenstown says that Captain Samuels, of the yacht Dauntless, attributes his defeat by the Coronet to tbe interference of Mr. Colt, owner of the Dauntless, who was on board the vessel. Captain Samuel i and five of tbe crew have left the Dauntless and will sail for New York to-morrow. WHERE IS THE MONEY ? stockholders of the Horn Silver mine Concern* d About »230,000. New York, March 30.—Financial circles are exercised over the report that $250,000 oi the funds of the Horn Silver Mining Company, in which A. R. Culver and Allen C. Washington are interested, have disappeared. The story runs that Culver and Washington are now trying to find where tbe money has gone. They are hunting up stockholders, and at the I meeting in October will ask an explana tion of tbe missing cash. Charles G. Francklyn, President of the company, who, it is claimed, can explain the mat ters, has not yet returned from Europe. Mr. Culver said that the mine, which is in Southern U'ab, has declared dividends of some $2000 or more, but about two years ago it ceased paying dividends. Reports from the company were unsatis factory, and some ot the principal stock holders want some light let in on the management of the mine. A SEBIOIf IKE. Over TOO Shoe Manufacturers Thrown Out of Employment. Detroit, Maroh 30.—The large shoe manufacturing establishment of Pingree & Smith was totally destroyed by lire to night. The loss is estimated at $325, --000. The insurance on the stock is $95, --000, and on the machinery, $10,000, and on the building, $20,000. By this fire 725 employes aro thrown out of employ ment. Portland Stock Board. Portland, Or., March 30.— The Stock Exchange and Mining Board or ganized this evening. The number of members is limited to twenty-five, all subscribed at $250 each. C. H. Pres. cott was elected president, Bernard Goldsmith vice-president, Jonathan Bourne, Jr., ohairman. J. T. Flynn, sec retary, and J. F. Watson treasurer. The constitution and bylaws are essentially tbe same as those of the San Francisco Stock Exchange Board. The associa tion expects to begin business in about three weeks. In a short time the Pacifio fleet will start out, and part of it has gone already. Tho injurious effect of early fishing has been fully discussed and is generally admitted, yet the de sirability of any repressive or restricting legislation is not by any means unani mous among those who ougHt to know all about the matter. Prices during the past twelve months have been more favorable to those engaged in the busi ness tban was the case a year previous, and those who were in favor of a close season at that time are not so anxious now. It is hardly possible that any thing will be dove toward protecting the sea ti-ih until every possible resource has been taxed to its uttermost to supply tbe growing demand. The Pacific is al most an unknown ground and has got to be tried in a systematic manner. Damages Against the City Rail way Company. Scott, of Santa Monica, is a fraud. Of course be has the finest hotel in Southern California, and the opening ball of that hotel last night, or rather this morning, was a most delightful af fair, and the numerous guests enjoyed themselves to the full. All the same, Scott is a fraud. He advertised that the train from the ball would arrive at Los Angeles at 1 o'clock this morning. Having confidence in Scott, a young man en costume de rigueur was sent to report the grand ball. Spice was re served for the gilt-edged account, and menial calculations were being made as to how many thousand copies should be printed to supply the charming young ladies whose cos tumes would be written up. About midnight there oame a gurgling sound over the telephone, in which there was a trace of tbe voice of the reporter,and a still, small aroma of champagne. There were many indistinct sounds and a few intelligible words as follows: "Train wont lesve till 2:30. Everybody -having such a good time want to stay all night. So do I. Big crowd, fine music, elegant dresses. Will save report for Thurs day." • The jury in the case of S. F. and Mary A. Anderson vs. the City Railway Company, after toeing out an hour, brought in a verdict for plaintiffs in the sum of $4583 37. The jury was com posed of Messrs. William Ligou, vV. H. Carey, J. Baldwin, J. A. Sherman, P. McAnary, J. Schilling, J. A. Bultis, M. H. Billinger, A. Merriam, William F. Turner, William H. Walker and R. Wilkinson. A stay of execution was granted defendants for thirty days. This suit was brought to recover $10, --000 damages for injuries to Mrs. Ander son on the sth of June, 1886. Plaintiffs alleged that on that day Mrs. Anderson was riding on a street-car and signalled the driver to stop, which he did on North Main street. Mrs. Anderson then started to alight, but as another car was passing on the other track, she waited. Just as she stepped off, the car she was on started, throwing her to the ground on her back, straining her spiuo and otherwise injuring her. Lugonia Auction Sale.

Through Tourist Sleepers. To prevent any misapprehensions about the friction of the Interstate Com merce bill with the tourist sleeping car rates and privileges overland, the follow ing dispatch has been received in this oity: Topeka, Kan , March 24, 1887.

The Expositor thinks that Los An geles should reach out for the trade of the San Joaquin valley at least as far as Fresno. No doubt it would be advan tageous to the counties of Kern, Tulire and Fresno if it did so—if merchants having their business connections there would establish themselves in those counties. Because of opposition trans continental railroads centering at Los Angeles, goods are cheaper there than atSan Francisco.—[Californian. THE FISHING INDUSTRY. His Fearful Leap into Eternity. DOWN AN ELEVATOR SHAFT. The Colorado Legislature De nounces the Oppression of Britain. Associated Press Dlsoatches to the »■»».», St. Louis, Maroh 30.—Hon. Thomas C. Reynolds committed suicide at tho Custom House this afternoon by plung ing down the elevator shaft. He fella distance of eighty feet, orushing in his skull. The cause of the rash act was mental derangement, superinduced my the hallucination that he was about ts> become insane. A few minutes before 2 o'clock he entered the building and sauntered into the United States Conrt room. Several persons met vim in tho building and he appeared in bis usual humor. He was seen to leave tho United States Marshal's office, aad stay* ping into the elevator gate passed oat oft view. A few minutes later he was brought out of the sub-basement dead. In 1860 he was elected Lieutenant-Governor of the State of Missouri on the same) ticket, with the famous Governor Caleb Jackson, and in the Civil War sided with the Confederacy. At the close of the war he went to Mexico and became very irtimate with Maximilian. In 1868 ho returned to St. Louis. He was a mem ber of the commission sent to South America about two years ago, in the in terest of commeroe with the United States. In 1854 he fought a duel with B. Gratz Brown, with rifles at 30 paces, on the island opposite this oity, over a political discussion. Mr. Brown wan bit in the knee, but Mr. Reynolds was not touched.* It is believed that Gover nor Reynolds only intended to malm Mr. Brown. Governor Reynolds was married twice, and leaves to his second wife, whom he married three years ago, all his property. SYMPATHY Willi Gladstone and Parnell tat their Efforts for Ireland. Denver, Col., March 30.—The House to-day adopted tbe following: Resolved, By this general Assemble-, assembled at Denver, capital of the State, Maroh 30th, A. D., 1887, that the cordial greeting and sympathy of this general assembly be, and is hereby ex tended to Right Hon. Win. E. Glad stone, Hon. Chas. Stewart Parnell, of the House of Commons, and the people of Great Britain and Ireland, in their just and heroic warfare against the op pression of the people of Ireland by the system of misrule which, in the judg ment of mankind, should be abolished and no vestige left to tell the story of such barbarism, or of its slavery. The Police Commissioners and Hathorne. Ibe Police Commissioners held a meeting yesterday, or it is reported they had. The book in which is kept the do ings of this body last night bore no rec ord of their action. It was learned that the cjmmissioners had entered an order suspending Officers Hathorne and Orubbs from duty, with loss of pay, from the Ist of March to the Ist of May. Officer Hathorne contracted that dread disease, the smallpox, when it first made its appearance in this city and has been confined to his home ever since. Officer Grubbs living in the same house with Officer Hathorne, and having visited him was included in tbe quaran tine whioh was placed on the house. Hathorne contracted the disease while a member of the police force of this city. He was in the execution of his duty, which naturally threw him in contact with persons who were afflicted with the disease, and hence he caught it. If there is a man in this city so small-souled as to refuse to succor and assist a mau who received injuries ia his service he has never let himself be known. If the Police Commissioners have done this thing, as reported, and cut off Officer Hat home's pay whilst he was suffering from a disease contracted in the execu tion of his duty, the whole people of Los Angeles will arise and condemn them. Jim Hathorne is a brave, quiet, faithful offioer and every mas m this city who knows him will vouch for his good char acter and devotion to duty. Aside from that fact, it is questionable whether the Commissioners can arbitrarily deprive him of his pay during his illness and be fore he was suspended. It is to be hoped that the Commissioners have not been led to commit this rash act. If they have they will be tbe subjects of much adverse ciiticism. Hotel Arcadia Opening Ball. Why Not Arrest Hammond? It seems that there is to be a premium placed upon rascality. £1 Hammond, Tax Collector, levants with over $12,000 of the county's money. It is ascertained that his bond is good, the Sheriff sends a few telegrams asking other Sheriffs to please arrest £1 if they see him coming along in tbe middle of the road, and here apparently the matter ends. Tho people of Salt Lake, Kalamazoo and San Kranc'sco have a deep love for Los Angeles, but this love does not pene trate the breast of the average officer deep enough to make him lose sleep or a drink to arrest our defaulting Tax Collector, unless tbe aforesaid officer sees a little in it for himself. El with his msgio sack could too easily square the officer. The Supervisors should at least offer enough reward to stimulate the officers at a distance to capture the fugitive. This man should be arrested, brought back here and tried for hia crime, and ho could be as easily as not. Everybody knows this, but it seems that all interest has died out in El and he will be allowed to continue hia pleasure trip. The Sheriff's t Mice to-day received a placard offering $16,000 reward for the capture of four men who stole $6,000 worth of senlekins from a Cleveland. Ohio, firm. True, in a melee two offi cers were wounded whioh tends to in crease tbe amount of the reward. At* least let the proper body make a pre tense of capturing Hammond, if only to let the coming generation know that a fellow can't ran off with a lot of money belonging to somebody else without the law becoming indignant.
