VALUABLE CAItUU LOUT.
A Steamer Loaded for Hawaii
Burns at the Duck.
San Francisco, November 15. —Fire
was discovered this morning on the
steamer Hawaii, which was lying at the
Oceanic dock ready to sail for Honolulu
today. The steamer had a fall cargo,
including much valuable merchandise
intended for the Christmas trade at Hon
olulu. She was at once towed to Mission
Rock, and tha fire extinguished by
swamping her on the mud flats. The
extent of the damage is not known, but
will probably bo considerable. The
Hawaii was formerly named Del Norte,
and she was recently purchased by the
Wilder Steamship Company of Honolulu
for $30,000. Stie was intended for the
Later. —Examination shows that the
fire was caused by the accidental slack
ing of lime, which was stored in the
hold. Uer cargo, which was valued at
$270,000, will probably be a total loss, as
it was necessary to fill the vessel with
water in order to extinguish the flames,
liar hull was not seriously icjurod. The
loss on the cargo is well covered by in

A Day Devoted to too Discussion of
Sacramento, November 15. — This
morning tbe National Orange visited the
Ji. B. Crocker art gallery. In the after
noon the time was devoted to the discus
sion of the resolutions reported by tho
committee, among which was one upon
the issue of paper money and the coinage
of silver; also one against food adultera
tion. An amendment to tho constitution
of tho National Grange was promulgated
for authorizing the organization of
more than one Pomona Grange in
each county. The resolutions of the
Calitornia State Grange protesting
against any reduction of the tax now im
posed on the importation, manufacture
or sale of spirituous or malt liquors or
tobacco, was referred back. to
the Stats Grange, from which
it emanated. After considerable dis
cussion resolutions were unanimously
adopted heartily endorsing tbe annual
gathering of the Patrons of Husbandry at
Williams' Grove, Pennsylvania, and ex
pressing entire confidence in Colonel It.

How a Young- Sailor Tried to mur
der Hie Benefactor.
Sacramento, November 15.—There
cjme near being a murder near Michigan
Sir last Sunday. There resides on* Red
man ranch, seven miles southeast of
Michigan Bar, an old man known as
"Poland Frank," who has been in the
habit of entertaining any persons who
might happen along, for the sake of their
company. About two weeks ago there
traveled that way a young English sailor.
"Poland Frank" welcomed him to the
hospitality of his home. Last Sunday
they went to Michigan Bar and both
drank freely. By the time they returned
home the sailor was very drank, snd

acted like a wild man. Frank
became alarmed and thought it host, to
take the caps from a shotgun which was
hanging on the wall of his cabin. He
took down the weapon, when the sailor
drew a large dirk knife and sprang upon
his heuefaotor. Frank defended himself
as best he could, but received seven or
eight cuts. He was finally thrown to
the floor, and the sailor raised his knife
to/give what would certainly have been
a fatal blow, when two men, who had
beeu attracted to the scene by the sounds
of the strife, ru»hed in and pulled the
sailor from the prostrate man. Frank
arose, but the sailor who is an expert
knife thrower, took the dirk by
the point and hurled it with great
force at the object of his drunken fury.
The knife struck Frank in the left
breast below the shoulder blade, passing
entirely through hia body. The sailor
was overpowered by the two men, and
when he became sober appeared over-'
whelmed with grief at what he had done.
He has since nursed the wounded man
with great care, and the chances are in
favor of Frank's recovery. There has
been no arrest and no com plaint has been
made, and the old man declares he will
not prosecute bis assailant under any
circumstances. He says he was equally
to blame for letting the young sailer
drink so much wh:a 8/

Due to Bed Tape.
Chicago, November 15.—A meeting
was hold today, at army headquarters, of
the Sioux Commission appointed by the
President to treat with the Sioux Indians
for the opening of their reservation, in
order to prepare their final report. Re
ferring to the charges of unnecessary
delay in the opening of the Sioux reser
vation, which of late have been frequent,
Major Roberts, Aide tie-Camp to General
Crook, Etated that the dolay was una
voidable, and waß due to the decision of
the President that owing to the contra
dictory phraseology of tho two acts of
Congress, it would bo necessary for Con
gress ta act on the report of "the Sioux
Commission before it could be opened to
General Crook, in answering the
chargo3 that the delay in opening the
reservation was due ti the fact that the
promise) which he had made to the In
dians to induce them to cede the terri
tory had not been fulfilled, said: "I
may say that neither I cor any member
of tbe commission made any promise,
such as redress of grievances and the
lika, that we wore not amply able to
carry out, and which will not be carried
out to the letter. There were some
grievances which we could not, from their
nature pledge ourselves personally or
ofT'oially to have redressed, but upon our
promise to represent theße in as favor

the chiefs expressed themselves as per

will occupy from one to two weeks.
