the existing war taxation. The fifth

A Stormy Time Over the Election ,
Of a Chairman. <
Denver, Col., August 29.—The Deep (
Water Convention was called to order (
this morning by ex-Governor Evans, i
The report of the Committee on Creden- f
tials was read and adopted. Judge 1
Brady, of Texas, presented the report of ]
the Committee on Permanent Organiza- ]
tion as follows: Chairman, Hon. G. P. ]
Noel, of Kansas; vice-presidents, Gover- (
nor Adams, Colorado; John Hancock, i
Texas; D. H. Armstrong, Missouri; J. (

ka; W. A. Culp, Iowa; G. F. Fowell, <
Arkansas; J. Reynolds, New Mexico; F. (
D. Kelley, Wyoming; Lewis Wolfley, i
Arizona; secretary, F. A. Dana. 1
Lieutenant-Governor Gibbs, of Texas, j
presented as a substitute for the report |
of the committee a proposition that the i
Convention provide its own Chairman, i
and then nominated Governor Thayer, ;
of Nebraska,for that position. This brought
the battle between Galveston and Ar
kansas Pass squarely to the front, and for ,
over two hours the substitute was warmly
debated between tbe friends of these two
cities, it being understood that Thayer
was favoring Arkansas Pass, while Noel
was for Galveston. Gibbs' substitute
was finally carried, and the roll call
resulted in 217 votes for Thayer and 198
for Noel. The announcement of the vote
created a pandemonium which lasted
several minutes. The Convention then
took a recess till three o'clock this after
noon. On reassembling Governor
Thayer took the chair and was presented
with a handsome silver-mounted gavel
from Senator Houston, of Texas, on be
half of the President of the San Antonio
and Arkansas Pass Railway. After a
brief address from Governor Thayer, the
Convention then appointed a Committee
on Resolutions and adjourned until 10 a.
m. to-morrow.
Transcontinental Freight Rates
Not Yet Adjusted.
Chicago, August 29.—The freight de
partments of the Western roads have re
ceived a promised supplement to the
transcontinental tariff. It modifies in a
great measure some of the inconsisten
cies that Chicago shippers are complain
ing of, but only partly relieves this city
of the discrimination imposed by _ the
original rate sheet. On many articles
that are manufactured here, such as
matches, musical instruments, etc., the
rates are still higher from Chicago to the
Pacific Coast than from New York to the
same points. The majority of the Mis
souri river roads refuse to adopt the new
rate. Chairman Midgely will be home
to-morrow and a meeting of merchants
and railroad men will be held to consider
the subject.

A Crank Who Received a. Revelation 1
la Lob Angeles. 1
New York, August 15.—Among the
witnesses who appeared before the Ford
Committee on Immigration yesterday, .
was Lewis B. Greenslade, better known ;
as "Lewis the Light." He was dressed
in a blouse and knickerbockers of spot
less white duck, and on his chest was a '
great scarlet heart. He looked very pic- !
turesque, and was by far the most inter
esting witness of the day. He was
asked to take the oath, and held up his '
left hand, saying that he had as much
respect for one hand as for the other. J
His age he gave as 30 years, and said he
came to this country first in 1876, by way
of Canada. In telling briefly the story
of his life he said that he started out as
a carpenter, but soon left that trade to ,
run a news agency, and became the agent ,
for the National and Anchor steamship ]
lines. He did not do any soliciting of ,
passengers, but if any one came to |
his office he would give them plenty of j
reading matter. He had been to this ,
country three times, and on his second ,
trip he was convinced, while in Los An- t
geles, Cal., that he had an especial call
to become the "Chief Jester in the Royal
Court of the King of Kings," so he went
at once to England and determined to i
raise a commotion. He had some circu- j
lars printed, and one day he went to St.
Paul's in London and astonished every- j
body by going through the church and |
distributing the circulars. He did .
the same thing at Westminster Abbey
and at the Temple he jumped into Dr.
Parker's place and delivered a little ser- •
mon. This caused his arrest, and he was
examined as to his sanity. The exam
iners said he was all right and he was al
lowed to go, but he repeated his feat and
was sent to Hollo way Prison, where he
was again examined, declared to be in
sane and sent to the Stone Asylum. He
appealed to tbe Commissioners of Lun
acy, who ordered his release. Ihey
wanted him to promise to come to this
country, but he would not do' so.
Filially he had a consultation
with Dr. White, the Superintend
ent of the Asylum, and Polydore Key
ser, the present Lord Mayor of London,
and decided to come here, as the Govern
ment would pay his passage. For three
weeks he was in London, and one morn
ing a newspaper announced that he had
' taken part in a Socialistic meeting. He
' was arrested and taken to the Guild
Hall, where he pronounced the state
ment to be fake, but it stirred up the
officials and he was shipped off at once.
He came on the Egyptian Monarch, and
, had been provided with a steerage pas
sage. He went to the Captain and an
. nounced himself as a lunatic, saying
. that he wished a cabin passage. He got
, it. He has been disseminating his views
, of how he can beat death, while bis wife
. is a barber in Brooklyn.

The Will of tbe Late
Charles Crocker.
Mrs. Hopkins Searles Smells a
Mouse—The Officers of the
Oceanic Exonerated.
Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. I
San Francisco, August 29.—The ill
of the late Charles Crocker was filed in
the Probate Court this afternoon. It was
executed on May 2,1887. Mrs. Mary A.
Crocker, the widow of the deceased, is
made executrix, and applies for letters of
testamentary. The petition for the pro
bate of the will states that the estate is
worth $25,209,037, divided among the
following property: Real estate, $2,800,
--000; bonds and stocks, $12,000,000; ac
counts, $8,150,000; promisory notes,
$1,850,000; cash, $4,59,037. The testa
tor declares that all the es
tate is community property, and
that Mrs. Mary A. Crocker, his wife, is
entitled to one-half. In addition she is
bequeathed the residences at Sacramento
and on California street, this city, with
all the pictures, furniture, horses, etc.
Nothing is left to Charles Crocker, the
son of H. S. Crocker, and nothing to bis
brother, H. S. Crocker, because the tes
tator gave both in his lifetime all he in
tended to leave them. To Fannie and
Julia, daughters of C. W. Crocker, he
leaves $10,000 each, and to Edgar, the
son of the same, he leaves $22,000; to
Clark W. Crocker, his brother, he leaves
nothing; to each servant in his em
ploy at the time of his death
he leaves $1,500 for each year of service;
to his sister, Mrs. Sarah E. McKee, he
leaves $30,000; to his cousin, Mrs. Fan
nie Hoff, he gave $25,000; one-quarter of
the residue is left to his two sons,
Charles F. and William H., and all the
balance is to be invested by the execu
tors for his daughter, Mrs. Harriet V.
Alexander, of New York. To his son
George the deceased leaves all he has ad
vanced to him for his business.
Citizens of Nogules Thirsting for the
Blood ol Kohn's Murderer.
Nooales, Ariz., August 29.—Officers
arrived this evening from Sonora with
Manuel Verdugo, supposed to be the
murderer of Louis Kobn, a dry goods
merchant of this city. Verdugo was ar
rested on telegraph at Ortiz station, near
Guaymas, Monday last, and the evidence
is very strong against him. Bloody
clothing, the same as that worn by the
prisoner the day before the murder, was
found in a room occupied by him
while here, and which he left without
turning over the key. There is strong
talk of lynching when the prisoner is
turned over to the American oflicers.

to the effect that Mrs. Mark L. Hopkins-
Searles has become suspicious of the
management of the Southern Pacific
Company property, so far as her interest
is concerned, and that the affairs 01 the
company were in a very bad condition,
and that through her attorneys she was
instigating a searching examination.
Manager Towne said this evening that
her attorneys are hereon business touch

she is entirely satisfied with the manage

desire to withdraw her investments.

Tax Assessment.
Editors Herald—Although the as
sessed valuation of the real property of
Los Angeles county for the year 1888 is
exorbitantly high, it is doubtful whether
the State or County Treasury will realize
as high an aggregate of taxes for this
year as would be realized if the assess
ments were not so oppressively extrava
gant. The people of this county are in
unison with the progressive spirit of
this portion of the State, and are
accustomed to cheerfully waive any ex
ceptions to assessments that are known
to be moderately above the actual and
legal valuation of property. They say
nothing about it and let it go for effect;
but when the assessments levied are not
only above actual values, but so extrava
gantly and palpably above actual values
as to appear to threaten absolute confis
cation of the property, the people so
assessed will see to it not only that taxes
will not be paid under such illegal assess
ments, but that sales of property for non
payment will be stopped by writs of
It is not apparent whether the asses
sor was under the prevalent craze of
"booms" in real estate, or was stupidly
and stubbornly ignorant of His official
duty. However this may be, it appears
on looking over the rolls that the assess
ments levied upon the cultivated farms
of this county are extravagantly above
actual values, and, therefore, not only
illegal but oppressive.
By section 3673 of the Political Code,
the Board of Supervisors has lawful au
thority to compare and equalize assess
ments, but they have authority also to
reduce the whole county assessment
down to the actual and legal valuation of
property; and knowing as they do that
these assessments are far above actual
values, and not having made such re
duction, they cannot escape censure for
dereliction of duty. Nor can they shirk
their own responsibility by shifting this
work over to the State Board of Equali
zation. The Supervisors having authority
by the Statute law, to make such reduc
tion, and not having done so,
the State Board at Sacramento
will decline the work, and upon
the plausible assumption that the Super
visors, being local witnesses on the
ground, ought to know best about it; or it
may be urged in the State Board that if
the people down there in the south part
of the State are willing and anxious and
proud to pay more than double their just
proportion of the State taxes, then let
them do so; but if they are dissatisfied
with this, then let their home Board of
Supervisors attend to it. And so it will
turn out that the farmers of this county
will be expected to succumb to unlawful
taxation laid on under the crazy incentive
of an asf.essor, and sanctioned by the
weak, passive inaction of the Board of
A speculative puffing of the ptices of
real estate in market does not affect tlie
actual value of the cultivated homestead
farms oi the county. It is bad policy,
bad statesmanship, to crush out or dis
courage by excessive taxation, the set
tled cultivators of the useful products of
these farmß. The foregoing is apposite
to the county assessments generally;
but mention may he made of particular
instances in which the County Assessor,
whatever his name is, was grossly and
corruptly personal, seemingly with the
view to provoke people to dispose of
their farms to speculators, under pressure
of over-burdensome taxation. For in
stance, on the Homestead farm of 134
acres, owned and occupied and cultivated
by the undersigned for many years past,
the County Assessor imposed an assess
ment of $147,400, being $1100 per acre
for last year, and $120,000, being $900
per acre for this year, each one of these
two annual assessments being about
seven times more than the actual value
or legal valuation of the land, as proved
by the recorded fact that prior to these
last two years this same farm had been
assessed from year to year at only its
actnal value of from $4000 to $5000.
To show the Assessor's personal dis
crimination against the undersigned, let
it he observed that the neighboring farm
of like quality is assessed at the coi ipar
atively low figure of only $250 per acre.
Now, the legal proceeding of impeach
ment against the County Assessor for
mal-practice in office would not remuner
ate the damages; and then impeachment
would be conferring a kind of dignity
and honor upon him.

Near the hoist bridge in the Oswego
Canal is moored an old and dilapidated
canal-boat, the letters of whose name,
Hat tie Sweeney, are still legible. A
canalman leaned over the railing of the
bridge yesterday afternooa contemplating
her. "If ever there was a Jonah boat in
the world that's her," he said. "She
has been a Jonah to everybody that ever
owned her. Nobody has kept her long,
and every one seems to lose money on
ber. I lost f3OO myself when I owned
her. There is no reason why she
shouldn't make money as well as any
other boat, except that she is a Jonah.
Then look at her record. First there
was somebody shot on her deck. Then
a boy fell off her deck and was drowned.
Just after that she went down to New
York and everybody on board was taken
with the smallpox. That is a specimen
of the kind of boat she is. She carries

An Old Landmark.
The Herald's Eastern exchanges
bring an item of news which will
prove of much interest to readers of
this paper. It is to the effect
that by the retirement of General
Baird from the head of the Inspector
General's Department of the army Major
Geo. H. Burton, now on duty at General
Miles' headquarters, is promoted to a
lieutenant-coloncy. Old-time Angelefios
will remember Colonel Burton back in
1869 to 1872 as a lieutenant in the infan
try, and stationed at Drum Barracks.
They will also recall his marriage in this
city to Miss Minnie Larabee, of whom
the local press at that time said she
was the most beautiful of all the Los
Angeles belles. Since that period Colonel
Burton has served in many parts of tbe
country and participated in various
severe Indian campaigns, notably the
Modoc war in the Oregon lava beds,
when General Canby was killed. He
now returns to his old haunts a Lieuten
ant-Colonel in the most favored corps in
the army, with the prospect of remaining
for four or five years. Those who knew
him of old will be glad to welcome him
back, and they will desire that his stay
may be very long, and this wish will
be shared by all the community, as
Colonel Burton becomes as generally
known as he was twenty years ago.
She Is of Age.
On Tuesday morning last the Timet
contained a sensational story about a
young woman, whom the writer alleged
was forced to live a life of shame by her
"Mac." The story also stated that the
young woman had endeavored to reform,
but that the "Mac" forced her back to
the life she disliked. Miss Carrie Blair,
the young woman in question, called at
the police station last night and said that
there was no word of truth in the alle
gations of the Times. She had not been
living with one of the Abbotts and had
not been forced from virtuous paths by
him. She said that she was living a re
spectable life and that she was 21 years
of age, and that she proposed to live us
she pleased.
