THE SUNSET SHORE.
. Number of New Year's Tragedies. FATAL AFFRAY AT WILLIAM!; A Citizen Stabbed by a Salvation Army Leader at Red Bluff. Oregon Snows. Associated Press Dispatches to the Übrald Williams, Oal., January I.—Tho citi zens of this place were thrown into a state of excitement over the shooting of David Matheeon by Joe Oaaey about 9 o'clock this morning. Casey entered Gould's saloon, where a numbor were seated, among whom was Matheson, who had spent the night in the saloon. A game of whist was proposed, and four, including Casey and Matheson, seated themselves around the card table. Words immediately followed and the game was broken up. Mathe son resumed his seat by the fire, and Casey walked about the room applying foul epithets which appeared to be di rected at Matheson, who answered by saving that he did not want to fight. Finally Matheson arose from his chair, when Casey drew his revolver and fired. The ball entered Matheson's left side and lodged in the tissue of the lungs. It ia thought he will die. Casey was taken into custody by a constable, and was subsequently removed to the County Jail at Colusa. Casey is a native of Louisiana, and about 37 years of age. He has resided in Williams at intervals since 1878. He has been employed ac bartender, and ia addicted to the use of liquor and opiates. Matheson is a native of Nova Scotia, and is 40 years old. Casey's father is said to have figured quite extensively in the early history of California. He was hanged out of a third-story window on Montgomery street, San Francisco, in 1856, by Vigil lantes, for killing James King, of Williams, editor of the Bulletin. M.I. AND VOID. A Supervisors' Ordinance Annulled by tbe Muprcnic court. San Francisco, January I.—The Su preme Court rendered a decision today in favor of the Spring Valley water works, thereby declaring null and void the ordinance of the Board of Supervisors of San Francisco which makes a reduc tion of about sixteen per cent, in the water rates to be charged for water to be furnished to the inhabitants of this city for the year commenc ing July 1, 1889, and ending June 30, 1890. The Board of Supervisors contended that the constitution conferred on the board the absolute and exclusive right to fix the water rates, while the company hold that there was a limita tion on the power of the board which compelled it to fix reasonable rates, and that from the amount of money invested, and the improvements projected, a re duction of sixteen per cent would not make the rates reasonable and just. TOO ill CH BHIAH Caused Kalph J. Ulllett to Commit Suicide. San Fbancisco, January 1. —Ralph J. Gillett, who for many years has been connected with the Spring Valley Water Company, and lately as collector, com mitted suicide by asphyxiation, this morning, in the basement of his resi dence on Webster street. Deceased had entered the residence by the back way late at nigbt. He went to a small room in the basement, attached a rubber gas hose to tbe jal, turned on the gaa, and then lay down on the floor and inhaled the fumes. The act was the result pf too much drink and domestic troubles I that arose from his intemperance. About six years ago he married Mrs. Bateman, widow of Isaac Batenjan, a former mining man. She received about eighty thousand dollars from the Bate man estate. NON-EXISTENT. Is What tbe Oakland Police Court Is Held to be. San Fbancisco, January t. —The Su preme Court today rendered a decision in the habeas corpos case of Ah You, a Chinaman, and dismissed the prisoner. The question involved was the legal ex istence of the Police Court of Oakland, Alexander Laidlaw, presiding Judge, as j established by the freeholders' charter adopted in February, 1887. The Su preme Court holds that the act of the Legislature of 1885 fixed the powers of Police Courts, and that the present char ter of Oakland is subject to said act, whence the Police Court in question must be held to have no legal existence. New Vear'sat'Frlico. San Fbancisco, January 1. —New Year's Day here was bright and warm. One form which the celebration took was the holding of public receptions. Among them was that tendered on his '.'().h birthday to Colonel John D. Stevenson, who brought with him from the East 1,000 men to aid in the conquest of Gali fornia. For nearly three hours he re ceived the congratulations of his friends. Auothcr reception was that at the Young Men's Christian Association, and etill another at the Olympic Clab. The day was also observed at the Marine Hos pital and at Sutro Heights, where lunch eon was offered by Adolph Sutro. New Year's receptions in private houses in this city have grown almost obsolete. The Browns Victorious. San Fbancisco, January I.—The St. Louis and Boston ball clubs met a f Haight-street park today, and the former were victorious by a score of sto 4. The grounds were rather soft in spots, but that did not effect the character of the playing materially. Boston played an errorless game in the field, and St. Louis was not far behind. The game was re plete with brilliant plays in which St. Louis rather took the lead. The St. Louis men were also lucky in handling their bats, and in that manner won tbe game. Ganzell and Daily officiated in the points for Boston, and Boyle and Baldwin for St. Louis. Santa An ..

Stabbed, by a Salvationist. Red Bluffs, January 1. —Considerable excitement bas been caused by tbe stab bing of Christian Poterßon, a tailor, by J. W. Lswie, a former leader of the Sal vation army.

Lewis was arrested. Snow ln Oregon. Portland, Ore., January ).. —The enow fall over the eastern portion of the State is deeper than for several years past. The weather is growing colder there, and the upper Columbia ia full of floating ice.

He's aa cool as a 1 cucumber whenever I meet him now." "That's easily accounted for. He's inherited some Adirondack property. It's apt to make a man 'fresh' when lm becomes a mountain heir, you know. : ' —[Glen Falls Republican. Editorial Convention.
