Nothing in Sight bnt Debate on
the Repeal Bill.
The Senate Will Devote the Whole
Week to the Measure.
Nothing Else to Be Attempted Till It
Is Finally Disposed or—Nothing
Important on the House
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Sept. 10.—The senate
during the coming week will devote
itself almost entirely to discussion of
the repeal bill. Possibly there may be
an occasional break during the morning
hour, but the calendar affords very lit
tle scope for diversion in this respect.
Tbe calendar is indeed one of tbe brief
est of publications these days, owing to
the fact that general committee action
has been encouraged in tbe interest of
legislation on the Sherman act. It con
tains two or three bills providing for
the settlement of government claims;
three resolutions for the payment of ex
penses of recent claimants to seats in
tbe senate; Senator Morgan's resolution
ior a special finance committee; half a
dozen measures of minor importance re
ported from the committee on public
lands; Senator Hill's bill for the repeal
of tbe federal election law and Senator
Voorhees' repeal bill and his bill for the
removal of the tax on state bonds.
Voorhees decided more tban a week
ago that it would be inexpedient to rush
his bill in the interest of national banks
until tbe more important repeal bill
should be disposed of, and bis bill has
been laid aside to allow the house meas
ure to be discussed until the senate is
ready for action, when if unconditional
repeal is reached, Voorhees' bill will
probably be substituted for the bill
which comes from the other end of tbe
Senator Hill will not attempt to secure
consideration for bis anti-federal elec
tion law bill until tbe question of repeal
ia concluded. Tbey are tbe only sub
jects of national law before tbe senate,
except Senator Peffer's resolntion con
cerning tbe reserves of the New York,
Philadelphia and Boston banks. Tbe
other measures on the calendar stand
no show, according to tbe present aspect
of affairs, of receiving tbe slightest at
It is quite evident that it is the pur
pose of tne repeal advocates to hold the
measure before the senate for tbe pres
ent as tbe one object of the session, to
the exclusion of every other subject, as
far as that can be done. This bill has
the right of way after 2 o'clock. It is
even possible that the bill will be
pressed more persistently during the
present week than it was last week,
now tbat there is a cessation of com
promise talk.
The outlook for the week, therefore,
is one of solid talk of the financial situa
tion, with tbe bill repealing the pur
chasing clause of the Sherman law as a
basis. Senator Teller's speech was
begun yesterday and will be continued
tomorrow. Senator Mitchell, of Oregon,
has given notice of a speech Tuesday;
Senator Daniel for a speech Thursday.
Other speeches, sufficient to occupy the
time of the senate for a week are known
to he in preparation. Part of the day
'■"•••inecdav will be devoted to eulogies
n< the late Senator Stanford of California.
ln the house there is nothing of im
yiortance on the horizon for the coming
week except the work of tbe ways and
means, hanking and currency and ap
propriation committees, which are pro
ceeding under the resolution passed
when the committees were announced.
None of the other house committees
have bad a meeting. Not a bill has
been reported. Tbia leavee tbe house
without a calendar, and therefore un
able to go ahead with the consideration
of legislative mattera, except by unani
mous consent.
Two Fatal Aecldenta in the Bnckeye
Fort Wayne, Ind., Sept. 10.—Thia
morning a collision occurred on the New
York, Chicago <Ss St. Louis railway two
miles east of Lelpsic, 0., between two
freight trains. The accident was caused
by the failure of the telegraph operator
at the junction to deliver a train order.
Both locomotives were entirely de
stroyed and 15 cars of merchandise
Jack Davidson, engineer, was killed;
Percy Uncer, his fireman, had both
legs crushed and waa scalded so badly
that death will result. Charles Mer
ritt, the other engineer, had hia leg
broken. Three brakemen were seriously
Columbus, 0., Sept. 10.—A wreck was
caused today on the Pan-Handle by the
breaking in two of a freight train at Big
Walnut, a few miles east of this city.
An unknown man waa killed, his body
being mangled beyond recognition.
Frank Detrick, a brakeman, of Hunt
ington, <>~ was probably fatally injured.
Tho Valkyrie Sighted.
Naw York, Sept. 10.—Interest to
night in the trial yacht racea waa
heightened by numerous rumors that
the English boat Valkyrie has been
sighted. The rnmor said she had been
seen off New York harbor, and later Bhe
bad been sighted near Boston. Sport
ing men are anxious tbat Lord Dun
raven's contestant for the America's
cup should poke her nose through the
gray morning's mist and lend her pres
ence to tomorrow's contest. Inquiries
by the Aeaociated Press correspondent
both in thia city and Boston failed to
confirm these rumors.
The Vatican Will Investigate.
London, Sept. 10.—A correspondent
in Home telegrapha that the Vatican is
about to open an inquiry of the most
searching character into the latest oppo
sition to Monaignor Satolli in tbe
United States, opposition whose ramify
ing influences are extending to Rome
itself. The Vatican has resolved to act
with the greatest energy upon tbe evi
dence it has secured in the matter.
French Visitors.
New York, Sept. 10.—A delegation of
52 French workmen, representing dif
ferent trades, arrived here today on tbe
steamer La Gascogne. During their
visit to thia country they will inspect
factories and look into the system of
work and the standing of American

Delta, Colo., Bank Robbers Identified by
Several Witnesses.
Dalta, 0010., Sept. 10.—The two men
who were killed laat Thursday, while at
tempting to escape after robbing the
Farmers' and Merchants' bank and kill
ing its cashier, were positively identified
today as Tom and Fred McCarthy, father
and son. The third man who participated
in the robbery, but escaped, is Billy
McCarthy, also a son of Tom McCarthy.
These men constituted tbe McCarthy
gang of Oregon, and are wanted there
for robbing stages and United States
mail. There is a reward of $10,000 for
them on thia account. The dead men
were exhumed and identified by Sheriff
Condee of Baker City, Ore., who at
tempted to arrest them in Oregon, bnt
was prevented by the McCarthys getting
tbe drop on him. Ex-Chief of Police
Farley of Denver alao knows tbe gang,
and says Tom McCarthy is tbe man who
robbed President D. H. Moffett of the
First National bank of Denver about
four years ago, securing $21,000. Budd
Taylor of Moab, Utah, who claims to be
a relative by marriage to tbe McCarthy
family, also identified the men. Billy
McCarthy, the escaped robber, is (till at
large, but the pursuit haa not been
given up.
He Appears Greatly Worn and Hakes
no Special Denial of the Charge
as to the opl Qin
San Diego Sun: Bryant Howard and
wife returned last night from their trip
to San Francisco, and were this morning
found at tbeir home at the corner of B
and Twelfth streets, by a San Diegan-
Sun reporter. Mr. Howard presented a
care-worn and weary appearance as one
who is over-tirei from a long mental ef
fort. He himself commented upon that
fact and said that the work of the past few
years, and especially the last few weeks,
bad been about all he could bear, but
that it was not yet over, and he was
still so burdened with business whose
lines led out innumerable directions,
tbat he found it difficult to divert his
mind to an interview. He waa there
fore at first disinclined to make any
statement for publication. He subse
quently, however, talked.
"For years," he began, slowly and
with some apparent feeling, as he re
called the past, "for years the Consoli
dated National bank has been my pride
and almost my life. I have worked with
all the energy and all the zeal in my
power to promote its interests. During
tbe hard years of struggle we have had
to preserve everything—(the bank and
the town) from going to wreck, as the
town certainly would have gone if it had
not been for the efforts of a very few
men, of which I can without egotism
claim tbat I am one—during these
years I have resorted to all honorable
means to bring money to the city and to
the bank. I believe I have in a large
measure succeeded in that effort. In tbe
last six years I do not hesitate to say
tbat I have been the principal means of
influencing the bringing of at least a
million and a half dollars to San
Diego. This bas bridged us over our
difficulties and saved us time and time
again. Among the means adopted to
keep up a good reserve in the bank at
all times, I have used my own funds,
borrowed from my friends and have in
duced others to purchase the paper of
tbe bank. In all cases, tbe paper has
been paid for in full, principal and in*
tercet. After the California National
bank failure, at lesat $100,000 was held
in the Consolidated National by the
means above outlined, and which other
wise would have been withdrawn. Had
it been withdrawn tbe Consolidated Na
tional would also have been compelled
to suspend at the same time. A disaster
waa then averted.
"But it is now c'aimed," continued
Mr. Howard, "that these tranefera were
a technical violation of the law. I then
deemed them absolutely necessary in
order to protect the interests of the
bank and tbe interests of tbe city."
"In these matters and others," eon
tinned Mr. Howard, after a pause,
"whenever I have endeavored to help
tbe bank and tbe city, I have made no
gainß for myself, but on the contrary
have been a large peraonal loser. If I
have erred at all I have erred simply in
judgment. The preaervatlon of the
Conaolidated National bank has been aa
dear to me aa life; all other considera
tions aank into insignificance when
compared with it."
Efforts were made to bring Mr. How
ard to a direct statement as to tbe
charge that he had need opium. It waa
hoped that, without asking him the flat,
bald question as to whether he has or
has not been addicted to the uae of
opium, be would see the importance
just at this time of making explicit
comment one way or the other. It
was hoped that he would Bee the
mistake of attempting to ignore tbe mat
ter or of even seeming to evade it, if it
waa not true. He declined to talk to
tbat point. Whenever a question was
given a suggeßtive turn, out of respect
for hia feelings, he returned to the sub
ject of the bank and his pride in it. He
had seen tbe opium charge in yester
day's diepatcbea on the way down from
San Francisco. He knew that thou
sands of friends were anxious to read
bis emphatic denial. Yet not until near
the close of the interview did he make
any reply to the point to which a reply
was specially Bought and which haa for
24 hours caused the moat talk and won
derment. And then he simply said:
"There are many statements made
which are wholly untrue, or which have
but Blight foundation in fact. I do not
think it worth while to diecuss them."

What Is Necessary for Further
Trotting Record Making.
gome Sensational Racing- Expected
Hereabouts This Season.
The Improvement Ist Horse Flesh—An
Enthusiast on Banta Ana's
Pride, the Facer
Tbe intelligence of Dlrectnm's per
formance at Fleetwood last Monday
brought joy to the heart of every horse
man in California. A half mile In
1:0 1 4 1 About a two minute clip! And
the "blaok whirlwind" is a California
production. But the pace taken by tbe
horse was evidently too fast, for he
winded down the stretch and came
under the wire well done np. One
thing, I take it, was clearly proven, and
that is that many horses tbat can show
a quarter or a half in inch remarkable
time cannot yet keep the pace up. If
this were true, it would not be im-
probable to suppose, nay, we might
even expect, to see the cirenit made in
two minutes, and perhaps before the
racing season of '93 is over.
Before a record, even a few seconds
lower, is made we mnst expect improve
ments in track, in vehicles and in
handling. Had Dexter had the tracks
crack flyers travel over now, with the
bike and other improvements which
yeara of study and invention has brought
about, would he not have left a mark
much lower than he did? I nae Dexter
merely aa on* of a score of horses in his
time Of whioh the same might be true.
This question would lead to another,
and that one: Are our racers improv
ing? Undoubtedly I believe they are.
But with the improvement in the horse,
some thought must also be given as to
tbe improvement in tbe way they are
handled, the improved vehicles, and our
superior tracks. The day of "cayuses"
ia over. The sale of third-rate horses is
over, and forever. That fact is proven
by the meetings in Oatifornia this year.
Bayers who ln former years were satis
fied with ordinary fair lookers and
about whose pedigree no attention was
paid, are now keeping their weather
eye open, and purchasing horses which
get their merits on blood lines and not
by chance. Driving horses must be able
to go along faster than a three-minute
gait now, if their owners can dust oth
ers ln our parks and on our roadways,
for three minute horses are as plenty as
"(lowers in apring time." Today vast
numbers of men who hold positions—
financially, socially and educationally—
that aro unassailable, are engaged in
the breeding, rearing and development
of tbe horse. It has been the popular
fad for years past, for the successful
merchant, the eminent lawyer, the for
tunate speculator, in fact all classes of
men who by brains or luck, bave ac
quired a competency to buy a good
horse and have a try at the best on rec
ord. Bo great a number of wealthy men
are at present engaged in this business,
and the strife to possess the best has
been so great, that prices oi good horses
have risen from $5000 (once considered
a fabulous price) to $150,000. Today
$10,000, $15,000 or $20,000 is only an or
dinary price for a stallion of the right
sort. The right sort means fine looking,
young, sound, highly-bred, fast and a
member of a family known to possess
race-horse characteristics.
Tbe farmer wants a good horse now.
He is not satisfied to bring his eggs and
butter to town in the afternoon behind
a hone which has worked on the plow
all morning. He haa his driving horse,
or perhaps two, and they are good ones.
And more than two-thirds of the so
called racers of today will be on the road
next season. That is where they belong.
Horsemen will realize by the end of the
racing season of '93 that every horse
sired by a racer, haa no legal right to be
a race horse, merely from that fact alone.
Their pocketbooks will tell thie story
plainly enough. That ia one of the rea
sons why I believe the horse interests
are improving.
And what a glorious record California
is getting! High above all the great
stables of the east stand the strings
taken from tbe sunset shore. Sorely,
we have reason to feel encouraged. With
Queen Hnlda, Directum and several
other goers in the east, tbe Golden state
will get her full mead of credit this
season. California is destined to be the
horse center of the world. < tod intended
it so, for here is the climate, the soil, the
rich native grasses, the pure water, the
lolling bills to develop the mußcles, and
man 19 doing the rest. She ia anew state,
and the many racers already sent forth
give us reason to expect many more
great things.
Southern California will be the scene
of some sensational racing this season.
The free-for-all pace at Santa Ana and
Los Angeles will bring together the crack
■idewheelers of the coast. Trne it is
tbat we of Los Angeles will not be per
mitted to see Silkwood in the race, bnt
the five entered will make a race fnll of
interest from start to finish. A glance
at the entry list shows that, aside from
the free-for-alls, some notable horses are
entered, and every day's racing has one
or more events which will prove inter
I was at the Santa Ana track the other
day, and, by the way, the enterprising
people of that little city take a great
pride in their race comae, too. Santa
Ana is a pretty little city. It haa a wide
awake, "get there" air about it that im
presses the visitor; and I always enjoy
a visit there. True it is that the people
in that place believe the sun rises, sinks
and shines on no other horse than Silk
wood, and tbe man who says Keating
pulled Our Dick laat year to win barrels
of money in San Francisco has no friends
in that place.
But, be that as it may, Santa Ana
may well take a pride in Silkwood, even
if he is carried with a broom and fed
with pumpkins. He is a great horse.
I saw him driven a half mile in 1:01J&,
and he went tbe laat quarter in 30 sec
onds, with the wind whistling through
his driver's whiskers. And Willits has
several worthy yonng horses in hia sta
blea. He knows it, too, and says tbe
only reason he didn't go to the races in
Santa Barbara and Hueneme was be
cause the freight rate was too high.
Silkwood will go in tbe free-for-all pace,
and if he doesn't win it, many a Santa
Anan will be disappointed. I predict
that Silkwood will aell first choice in
tbe pool box, when he ahould be sold aa
third or put in the field. And ii the
horse does not win, remarkably fast
time will be made by some of the
Who doesn't know Cash Harvey, the
noiaieat, biggest-hearted horseman in
Orange county T Well, be it was who
took me in charge and showed me some
of the flyers which he predicts will take
piece* of the stake money. Cash Har
vey haa the horses down fine, and will
talk race from 6 o'clock in the morning
until supper time. He cays the race
meeting here this year will be a "boom
er," and tbat bis mare Kittie Wiggle
will be somewhere near the front of the
bunch she ia entered against.
The stalls are pretty well taken on the
Orange county grounds. There are sev
enteen runners there from all parts of
the country, and about sixty harness
hones. The racing events have all
filled finely, and the meeting in October
will prove the moat successful one held
in that county, if the weather is favora
ble. I wae informed by the secretary of
the association, Mr. Rlggs, that the live
stock exhibit would also be creditable,
and those who visit the Silkwood city
thia year will be well entertained.
Isn't it a great thing that our lines are
cast in a country where it is possible to
have racing in the latter part of October
when tho leaves are off nearly all the
trees, and in many places heavy over
coats and warm fires are neceeeities. No
one is loosing sleep, fearing lest the
weather should be unfavorable. It
would be safe to bet on tbe weather in
Southern California even in November;
and by being able to hold the 1 ast meet
ing of the circnlt Los Angeles sees the
cream of the horses in the beat racing
condition. Dexter.

Pittsburg, Pa., Bept. 10.—About 100
Italian coal miners employed in the
Bradling mines in Cherry Valley, near
here, were discharged yesterday on ac
count of the depression in trade. The
fire employed 300 miners, and those dis
charged are mostly single men. Those
deposed have organized for tbe purpose
of preventing the others from working.
This afternoon they appeared on the
streets armed and openly threatened to
shoot tbe first man attempting to enter
tbe mines tomorrow. They have the
roada leading to the mines patroled and
appear determined to carry their threats
into execution. This evening Bradling
said he would protect the men, even if
necessary to use arms. He fears serious

it, and will probably appeal" to the

Him—A Visit to His
Walter J. Raymond is in jail at Day
ton, Ohio, awaiting trial on the first of
150 indictments, all charging him with
using the United States mails for fradu
lent purposes.
The case Waa worked up from the
start by United States Postal Inspector
M. H. Flint of Los Angeles.
In 1889 Raymond acquired 320 acres
of wild mountain land near Tehaohepi,
in Kern county. This land, which cost
the speculative Raymond about 40 cents
per acre, he has been selling at $100 per
By means of alluring advertisements
in bnndreds of newspapers, setting forth
the advantages of the land, as a fruit
bearing district, he swindled people out
of sums ranging from |100 to (500.
In July, 1892, the swindle had grown
to such immense proportions that the
postal authorities sent orders to all
United States postofßees, prohibiting
the delivery of any money mail to Ray
Raymond, however, changed the
name of his company to that of the
California Land and Water Exchange,
under which name he continued to re
ceive money orders and registered let
ters until arrested for fraudulent nse of
the mails.
Raymond's trial comes off in Cin
cinnati in October.
After Raymond's arrest Postal In
spector Flint was sent to examine the
desert lands. He went to Yuma, and
accompanied by R. T. -Burr, roadmaster
of the Southern Paciflo railroad, went to
tbe several sections on a handcar. Tbe
ride was an exceedingly hot one. They
carried a barrel of water on tbe car, and
managed to keep up respiration by tak
ing turns at bathing in this. The ther
mometer stood 136 degrees in the sun
with 10 degrees less under an umbrella.
No impress of human effort was found
upon any of the sections, except tbat of
Dryland. Here, a small cabin had been
erected of railroad tie*, bat it was now
about demolished. An attempt had
been made to dig a well, whiob bad
caved in so tbat there waa a hole in the
ground about four feet deep. 0. Shur
ney, a Pima squaw man, who had dug
the well, was found. He said he had
gone down 76 feet through the dry
earth, and that he stopped work be
cause be never got any pay. He com
menced the work for Raymond, being
employed by his son, a young man who
was on tbe land in July, 1892, aa agent
for his father. He went there with hia
aquaw, erected the cabin out of the ties
taken from along tbe railroad, and with
ber assistance dug tbe hole in the
ground, but was starved out and had to
During this stay of young Raymond,
he, at the instance of his sire, wrote
that worthy numerous "reports" of
copious length describing the condition
of "our plantation," as it was called
therein. In these missives it was repre
sented that tbe land was being largely
grown to trees and tbat the alfalfa was
doing well. The letters also showed
how they were getting along with tbe
water development and how the sold
acres were being surveyed. These let
ters, when received by Raymond, were
transmitted to tbe postal department
after hia money order receipta had been
■topped, to impress those officials with
the idea that he was acting in good
For soma reason young Raymond ap
peared to fall into diefavor with bis ac
tive parent, for after the well-digging
episode he presented himself to Samuel
Gillespie, manager of the Southern Pa
cific hotel, one day and aaked for work.
He waa given an opportunity to make
some money blacking boots, but this
failing to be remunerative, be was pro
moted to tbe position of dish-washer at
the hotel, until one happy day he re
ceived a letter informing him tbat he
had been reinstated in hie parent's
emiles and confidences and inclosing a
remittance on which he was to return
home, a thing he speedily did.
Inspector Flint states tbat no effort
bad been made to plant a tree, not
withstanding many aerea of land have

carrying an agreement tbat tbe land

sas Olty Arrested.
Kansas City, Mo., Sept, 10.—The
murderers of Mrs. Jane White, the
wealthy proprietress of an employment
agency, were taken today, in less than
24 hours after tbe crime was committed.
The crime was the result of a conspiracy
formed by two desperate men whose
motive was robbery. One is Henry
Jones, a cook; the other John Clarke,
also a cook and ex-convict, who had ob
tained his freedom six days before.
Clarke received as his share of tbe
booty $IGO and a gold watch. He spent
a portion of the money for drink, and
while drunk gave two bartenders $20
apiece, and to another the watch.
James Speck, one ol the bartenders, in
formed tbe police, Clarke was arrest
ed this afternoon, and after an experi
ence in the police sweat-box confessed.
He said Jonea proposed the robbery and
killing of Mrs. Wright. Jones was ar
rested this evening. He says be knows
nothing of the murder, but tbe police
have circumstantial evidence against
bim which tallies with Clarke's confes
sion. *
