I Associated Press Dispatches to tho Bibald. I
Santa Ana , January 27.—The search
of the Hitchcock residence this morn
ing was rewarded by the finding of an
ax and hatchet, both smeared with
blood. While a party of citizens were
discussing the points of the crime it
was remarked that Anschlag had been
seen coming to Santa Ana early on
Tuesday morning with a mud-be
smeared wagon, and Dunkeley, one
of those present, said that he believed
that lie had seen a wagon similar to it
driving across the prairie to a clump
of bushes. On proceeding to the spot
a pair of new blue overalls and a
besmeared with blood
And mud were found rolled up and
carefully hidden under a clump of
bushes. With them wore scraps of
letters, one of ttiem written in German
and another a twjrtion of a letter writ
ten by the deceased, Mrs. Hitchcock,
evidently to her sister in Illinois. The
overalls and jumper were at once
taken to Garden Grove and were
there identified by W. A. Bluzzard,
clerk to Wickham & Parker, as a pair
he sold to Anschlag on Monday. The
latter returned on Tuesday and said
that the pair were too short and
wished another suit, although he
did not offer to return tho first pair.
There was also found in the pock
ets a postal note for one dollar pur
chased'at Santa Ana on Saturday, but
the postmaster is unable to remember
to whom he sold it. The wagon tracks
and horses' footmarks measured, are
found to correspondexactly will) those
of Hitchcock's team. Coroner Mere
dith arrived from Los Angeles on the
noon train and at once proceeded to
hold the inquest.
At 8:40 to-night the coroner's jury
returned the following verdict: "We,
the jury, find that deceased died from
wounds in the neck and head inflicted
by a blunt instrument in the hands of
person or persons unknown, and we
believe Fred Anschlag to be one of
the said persons."
San Francisco, January 27. —Cap-
tain Lees, of tbe police force, to-day
investigated the record of Anschlag,
the supposed murderer of Hitchcock
and wife, while he was in this city.
Anschlag came here from Kn-nigs
burg, Germany, in December, 1880.
After remaining here a few months
he went to Bangor, Butte county,
where he purchased a farm.
The murderer, Fritz Anschlag, ar
rived in New York from Germany
about December 10th, 188 G. He
stayed there but a short time before
coming to San Francisco with
a letter of introduction from a
New York hotel keeper named J.
Baschkopf to A. Kummer, of this
city. After his arrival here he re
mained awhile at toe South Park
hotel, which place he left to stop a
couple of weeks with Mr. Kummer,
afterward going to a boarding house in
the vicinity. Anschlag told his friends
that he nad a wealthy farmer, an
uncle in Koenigsburg, Germany, and
that it was his intention to purchase
a farm in California. He paid a visit
to Bangor, Butte County, aud worked
for a man named Hergor,
returning to this city and leaving for
the South during the Christmas holi
days of last year. He went thence to
Pasadena. Kummer described
Anschlag as a crank about
whose private affa'rs very
little was known. He came
to San Francisco with a man named
Huthman, who very mysteriously dis
appeared. Anschlag claimed that he
lost Huthman in Oakland. During
his stay in the city he borrowed $25
from Kummer, which he failed to

Verdict of Suicide.
San Francisco, January 27.—1n the

tor of Fisheries, whose strange death
was reported yesterday, the coroner's

of the night before last and yesterday
was most severe in the Mohawk
Valley. The New York Central
abandoned all trains on the Hudson
River division at C o'clock last night
on account of the snow blockade.
The wind, which blew at the rate of
sixty miles per hour, swept snow
across the track in such quantities
that resistance to it was useless.
The snow was no sooner cleared away
by gangs of laborers than it covered
the track again. There were three
passenger and a score of freight
trains stuck in the snow.
TRAINS BADLY DELAYED.
The Chicago limited, over the New
York Central, arrived this morning
thirteen hours late. The St. Louis
limited, over the Erie, at noon was
in a snow bank. The snow has drifted
badly in all directions, and trains are
either abandoned or "running wild."

through trains were snowed up at
Kokomo Mountain all night, but man
aged to move this morning.
Are to the effect that the storm has
been steadily increasing throughout
the northern part of this State for the
past forty-eight hours, and is at its
worst to-night. The temperature is
falling, the wind is blowing a gale
and the snow is drifting upon the rail
way tracks, and laying a general em
bargo on getting about.
A LULL IN THE STORM.
Albany, January 27. — Morning

thermometer is about zero, and a
strong wind makes the cold intense.
The railroads are in a worse condition

Hudson Railroad tracks west of here,
are all blockaded and trains from New
York and Boston are moved with the
greatest difficulty. No freight trains
are being run in any direction. A

trains and one freight were blockaded
within a mile of this city. On the

HEVI.NI 11 HEFOHIH.
It la Discussed at a Meeting In
Philadelphia, January27.—A tariff
meeting was held at the Academy of
Music this morning to enforce and en
dorse the recommendations of Presi
dent Arthur and President Cleveland
for revenue reform. Wilson Welch,
of the Commercial Exchange, pre
sided. Two hundred well-known citi
zens of both parties, among them ex-
Governors Hoyt and Pattison, were
present. The feature of the evening
was an oration given by Congressman
Breckenridge, of Kentucky. Letters
of regret from Hugh McCulloch, S. S.
Cox, Secretary Fairchild, Speaker
Carlisle, David A. Wells and others
THE PLATFORM ADOPTED
Says: A reduction is nece»sary for an
excessive revenue is revised taxation,
and it was resolved that the existing
duties upon raw materials which are
to be used in manufactures should be
removed and that the duties on ar
ticles used or consumed by those who
are least able to bear the burden of
taxation should be reduced.
Breckenridge was the first speaker.
He said that the question of taxation
was the most important with which
the government had to deal, and that
the question was now before tbe
American people in an imperative
manner. Congress had but recently
refused the question of consideration,
but since then the President had de
clared that the tariff is to-day the one
question most worthy of the attention
of Congress and the atten
tion of the country. The surplus
threatens business panics, and is edu
cating people to false ideas of their
relations to the Government. The
money m the Treasury fs not the
money of the Government; it is the
money of the people, wrung from
them by a false and wrong policy of
taxation. The trade of Canada and
South America and Mexico has been
lost to the United States by a false
system of taxation. The leather
trade of tbe country has thrived since
hides have been allowed to come in
THE LABOR (iUESTION.
Referring to the many labor
troubles in Pennsylvania, Brecken
ridge said: "When labor is discon
tented, the system must be wrong,
and the surest guarantee of the pros
perity of a government is the content
and tranquility of labor, which we do
not have now because our system is
false and we must abandon it. What
is wanted is for the people, the labor
ing people, to get out of their minds
the idea that the labor of America
needs protection against the labor of
Europe, and to get into that that the
best protection for labor is independ
A FEW REMARKS FROM HURD.
Ex-Congressman Hurd was intro
duced and greeted warmly. He made
an elaborate argument to demonstrate
that the tariff was not in reality the
protection of American labor and
American enterprise, but only in some
instances a handmaid to monopoly.

Bombardment o( tbe Ice Palace
at Mt. Paul.
St. Pai l, January 27.—The first
storming of the ice palace to-night
was a great success. Two thousand
five hundred horsemen joined in the
parade and bombardment and 100,000
would be a small estimate of the
crowd that thronged the sidewalks,
swarmed on the hills and on the
houses as well as the palace grounds.
The fire king was State Senator D. A.
Morrison, of Rochester, Minn.
The palace was lighted by
electric lamps from within. The
clubs marched in and encircled
it, Jericho fashion, the fire king
demanding its surrender. Bore
alis Rex, from the battlement,
hurled back a defiance. A huge
bomb rose into the air, and the fire
king's forces answered with a thousand
Roman candles let off at once. The
bombardment lasted for half an hour,
and while the standard of Borealis
was burned early in the fight, the
palace itself was not taken.
CABLE CAR CALAMITY.
Seventeen Persons Injured at St.
St. Paul, January 27.—A cable car
this afternoon got away from the grip
on Seely avenue and ran off the track
and was smashed to pieces. _ Two or
three persons were fatally injured and
fourteen badly hurt.
The particulars are _to the effect
that in some unexplainable way at
the top of the hill the grip refused to
respond to the efforts of the gripman
to control the car. With the passen
ger car it dropped away dewn the hill
and soon attained a speed of twenty
miles an hour. At the bottom of
Seely avenue is a sharpcurve, and
when the cars reached this they im
mediately overturned and smashed a
stove in the rear car.

Washington, January 27.—The
House Committee on Flections to-day
disposed of the Indiana contested elec
tion case by ordering a report to the
House declaring the seat vacant on
the ground that White, the sitting

THE CHUISER CHARLESTON.
Anxiety Regarding tbe Steel
Being Used In Her.
Washington, January 27. —The
accident to the steel beams of the
cruiser Charleston, now being built at
San Francisco, is a matter of consid
erable anxiety to naval officers in this
city. A small section of one of the
fractured beams has been received at
the Department and shows plainly
that the crack was of a most decided
character, extending almost entirely
through the beam. It is now learned
that the four fractured deck beams
which were said to have been welded
and worked into the vessel,have been
removed as a result of the inquiry
into their fitness for use, which is still
iifprogress. The developed facts give
rise to apprehensions concerning tbe
character and quality of the steel
already worked into the hull of the
Charleston, and further developments
are awaited with anxiety.
Importation of Cattle from Ureal
Britain to be Allowed.
Washington, January 27. —The
Secretary of tbe Treasury has decided
to allow the importation of meat cat
tle from Great Britain and Ireland on
the condition that it be shown that no
pleuro-pneumonia existed where they
were obtained for one year prior to
their exportation, and that the cattle
are fully protected from contagion in
transportation from the farm. A cer
tificate and affidavit from the Commis
sioner of Agriculture certifying to
their health must be obtained before
landing, and they will be subjected to
a quarantine of ninety days.
Washington, January 27. —The Sec
retary of the Navy's action in the case

Poor Crops—The Wine Trade
Chicago, January 27. —Adolph
Houssaye writes from Paris to, the
local papers that the wine interests of
France are in a bad way. The vin
tage of 1886 was the poorest in thirty
years, both in quantity and quality,
but the vintage of 1888 proves to be
poorer still. Those whose vineyards
have not been devastated by phyl
loxera, and who therefore have good
wine, will get very high prices; but
most of the wine-growers will have to
face serious looses.
AS A RESULT OF THIS
The balance of the foreign wine trade
is heavily against France. Instead of
selling wine to others, she now has to
buy it for her own use.
Ten years ago more than 80,000,000
gallons were annually exported, while
the imports scarcely exceeded 5,000,
--000. Last year France sold only 54,
--000,000 gallons of wine, while her
purchases amounted to the enormous
total of 260,000,000 gallons. She ac
tually imported halt as much as she
THE WORBT FEATURE
Of the case, however, pertains not to
the quantity but to the quality of the
wine. Some 32,000 tons of sugar
were used last year to fortify the pro
duct of the wine presses. There were
during the year imported into or man
ufactured in France no less than 120,
--000,000 gallons of a mixture com
pounded from raisins, cider and refuse
of wine presses. This has been doc
tored and sold ss wine. There also
have been imported some millions of
gallons ef crude spirits, manufactured
in Germany from potatoes and beet
root. This is treated with drugs and
Eut upon the market as pure grape
randy, when it really contains not a
drop of grape juice.

pressed themselves as strongly in
favor of the savings and loan

streets is let to Messrs. Chas. Schind
ler and H. P. Larsen, the former gen
tleman constructing the brick founda
tion and the latter gentleman the
woodwork. Work is to be commenced
on the building immediately. This
structure will be a decided improve
ment to our town. The upper story
will be fitted up in the most approved
style, containing the latest appurte
nances which are necessary in a build
ing of that pattern. Large and con
venient apartments for stores,
etc., will comprise the lower story,
which we understand are already
engaged for occupancy. Cement
walks are to be laid on Center street
from in front of the building to tbe
center of town, thus affording city
conveniences. Mr. Reiser is alert to
our interests and the construction of
this block will be warmly appreciated
by our people. We hear it expressed
that other buildings are to be erected
on Center street in the neighborhood
of the above building, all of which are
contemplations of our townsmen.
The late purchase of Mr. Alexander
Henry on the corner of Los Angeles
and Center streets is to be graced
with a two-story brick building. It
will cover tbe entire lot, which is
90x120 feet. This is commendable
enterprise on the part of our popular
citizen and every success is extended
him in his forethought in this public
improvement. >Mr. Henry's late pur
chase is one of the best sites in town
for a building such as he intends
erecting, and the stately edifice is
earnestly looked for. —[Anaheim
