It Was Concocted by the Detectives He Says. The Bandit Assume* a Cheerful Klein and Bays Ha Himself Haa Noth ing tv Uonfe**—Mra. Son tug Miffed. By tke Associated Press. Fresno, Oct. 2.—When George Son tag's mother left here abomt two weeks ago, she was known to be bitter against the Evans family abont the way she was treated witb regard to money for warded from Minnesota; also abont the sale of tbe clothes John Sontag wort daring tbe battle at Stone Corral. When the report Of the confession was received this evening, a correspondent called on Chris Evans at the jail. He wan taken into the guards' room and told that George Sontag had made a confession with regard to tbe Pizley, Goshen, Ceres and Collis train rob beries. With a laugh that wae not mirthful, exclaimed : "Bully for him." Hu was eager to hear tbe story, and waa noticeably excited. He was told that Sontag had implicated him in tbe robberies, '•Who fays so?" be asked. He wae told (hat the news was tele graphed from San Francisco. "Just say for me," sard he, "thst Sontag or any other man who says I ever robbed any train tells a lie from beginning to end. Besides, Sontag never made any auch statement." He asked to see the telegram. Tbe dißpatcb was shown him. After he had read it over several times, he said, "I can prove by a dozen men that I was not near these train robberies. I was at home. In no way could I get there without flying, and lam no eagle. This is on a par with tbat woman, Mrs. Bride of South Carolina, who wrote to me since I have been in jail to confsss to the murder of her Bon some years ago. He bad come to California and sbo lost track of bim and wrote that I might as well son fens I marderad bim, ss it couldn't: do ma any harm as I was in jail. This thing is a julep. You may say I have nothing to confess. This story is mado ont of whole cloth by .... .w., _ ,rua rti— nerng—rrsrr >, effort to prejudice tbe people against me. Tbey have subsidizeil the press, and now are using every ellert to shut the deors of tbe theaters in Fresno and Visalia on tbe Evans and Sontag drama. Well, they're welcome to the job. Pixley, Goshen, Ceres and Collis, that's four of them. Why don't they scratch u» a few more? I wonder what will be tbe next move they make. I shouldn't wonder if they will have a dozen men up treesaronnd Jim Young's cabin aa witnesses to that fight. That would help tint the stories of Will Smith and Detective Dutehy, who played the railroad company." "Now, I never met George Sontag," continued Evans, "until January, 1892. I don't think he was on the coast before that time. Most of these robberies occurred before he came here, which shows tbat it is a fake to get me to say something. Well, Sheriff Scott's con fessional will not have me on tho list. I've nothing to confoss." When asked if Sontag might not be trying to make terms for himself >n con fessing, be replied that be could not tell what a pack of lies that fellow bad been telling. He believed it was a scheme gotten up by Jim Hume to get him to say something and commit him self, and announced tbat be would add another class of classification of crim inals for the railroad detective.

OFFOBRD TO A ItEDUOTION. Striking Switchmen at Memphis, Term., and Kvanavllle, Ind. Memphis, Term., Oct. I.—The crisis in the railread situation here seems to bave arrived, and a general strike and perhaps a tie-up is imminent. Twenty men in tbe yards of tbe Chesapeake and Ohio railroad went on a strike in resist ance of a reduction of salaries. The men in the Yazoo and Mississippi Val ley and the Illinois Central yards re fused tn handle Chesapeake and Ohio cars and tbey were promptly diamissed.

Wetmore, ■ -rK» _,tin vtintgr of the- exhibit, baa •the matter in charge. He said today noth ing further was to bs said at the present time regarding the matter. Tbe infor mation already given in the Associated Press dispatches was all to be given now. When asked regarding the corres pondence between California and other foreign countries, Mr. Wetmore said possibly he would have something of in terest to communicate in a few days. Tbe gist of the correspondence witb the British commissioner shows that Wetmore was dissatisfied with John Boyd Thatcher's plan of examination and favored that of Oldham. He ap- Eealed to Governor Markham to allow im to appoint a special expert and when so authorized communicated with Sir Henry Wood. Tbe British commis sion held a special session to consider tbe matter and accepted the plan. Mr. Oldham, a well-known London wine merchant, will finish his report in London. He ia recognized as a most competent authority, having had a most extensive acquaintance with tbe wines of all countries. SHOT A BOY. A Party of Negroos In Kanaaa In Danger of Being Lynched.

War Clouds Gathering Thick and East in Europe. Tronhlo Likely te Besnlt from the Visit of the Russian Squadron to Tonlon—Germany'* New War Ship*. By the Asrociated Pres". Berlin, Oct. I.—The newspapers here today publish lees favorable reports re garding Prince Bismarck's health. It was the intention of tbe physicians to remove bim to his bime at Fried richsrnhe yesterday, prince was not in a condition to make the journey. The prospect of a reconciliation between the ex-chancellor and the emperor grows elighter every day. GATHERING WAB CLOUDS. It is claimed thattbe military attaches of the drtcibund are very much shown .the cold Bhoulder by French officers, and as a retaliatory measure the mili tary authorities here propose to with draw all German military attached from France, in order to force the French government to withdraw its military attache! from Germany, Austria and Italy, who they claim are acting as spies. There are people, however, who claim that the agitation ia the work of tbe military party iv Germany who an ticipate opposition in parliament to the demand which will be made for an in crease in the army and navy expendi tures. THE ARMING LEGIONS. In the meanwhile tbe arming of the legions of Europe continues, and tbe time of general conflagration seems to be approaching more rapidly day by day. In fact there are people here who hint that there may be Berious riots in Paris and elsewhere in France, upon the occasion of the visit of the Russian fleet to Toulon, for it ia claimed the "Fire cracker party" in France is almost cer tain to make the Russian visit the occa sion for a demonstration against the Germans and Italians, not to mention the English, against which country tbe extra-demonstrative class ot French men claim to have well-founded cause for resentment. Tho Russian government has anticipated these possible riotoua demonstrations for some time past and it is with the object of trying to prevent them that the czar aad his ambassador iv Paris has been throwing cold water upon inflammatory France and warning Pres ident Carnot and his advisers against the danger of being too demonstrative. However, all tbe warning in the world will not prevent the French from mak ing a tremendous fuse over the Russian visit, and no amount of argument will convince the French people as a whole that the visit of tbe Russian fleet to Toulon is only 3 return visit out of com mon courtesy for the visit of the French fleet to Cronetadt. DEFECT IN WARSHIPS. The recent agitation in England in regard to tbe defects found in British warships, brought on mainly by the disaster to the Victoria, has had its echo here. It has been suggested that the British fleet would be more strength ened by the addition of large numbers of fast cruisers with powerful rams, and vessels of a type smaller and less ex pensive than tbe monster battleships, which seems to find ao much favor with British ship-builders. In this country the reported increase in tbe naval esti mate caused much dissatisfaction among the Radicals and Liberals, who claim Germany does not need a Btrong navy or addition to the army. Tbe ship-building experts ef Germany fol lowed closely the criticism made iv England upon the British warship which recently met with disaster and the German experts insist that the present type of German warships is es pecially unsuited to Germany, It is more than likely that the government will meet witb serious opposition in car rying out Emperor Williams' project to increase the strength of tbe German FRANCE AND SIAM. Final Settlement of Their Long-Standing Dlapate. Bangkok, Oct. I.—Final settlement of the dispute between France and Siam was arrived at today by tbe acceptance upon tbe part of tbe Siamese govern ment of the drafts of anew treaty pre sented by M. De Villiers, special envoy of France to the government of Siam. From this it is judged that tbe Siamese government made an unconditional sur render to France, and the latter country now has everything which she demanded from Siam, witb the exception of the demands wbich were considered in ex cess in the ultimatum presented some time ago. The signatures to the new treaty will be affixed oa Tuesday next. London, Oct. I.—A cable message re ceived by tbe Times from Bangkok says yesterday morning the French gunboat Aspic was ssen getting up Bteam, in order tbat De Villiers might leave the city. Later iv the day, un der extreme pressure, Siam agreed to sign both the treaty and the conven tion annexed. The clause originally in the treaty, whereby Siam was to allow any number of French agencies on the right bank of tbe Mekong, and cede gratuitously all the lands required fo il.c purpose, was withdrawn andY clause substituted which only dsmands facilities for navigation and agency work. The convection is now preceded with a preamble declaring tbat it settles finally ail the provisions of the ulti matum. According to Ds Villiers the French intend to evacuate Chantaboon as early as possible. Among the motives which led Siam to accept the convention was the honor able resolution of the king net to sacri fice the Danish officers, which demand DeVilliers abandoned, with the demand for reparation for the Packnam incident. The United States gunboat Concord has arrived off the bar at Bangkok. Tbe Times carrespondent adds tbat tbe treaty will be most unsatisfactory un less France fulfills ber pledgee. THE PARIS FUND. Dillon Thinks It Uest to Talk Abont It Underneath the Hose. Dublin, Oct. I.—John Dillon, M. P., addressed a large meeting today at Ballymote. He said the subject of the Paris fund was thrust before the public within tbe last 10 days. He always opposed public discussion on tbe sub ject, because it interfered with the col lettions of funds for tbe Irish cause in America and Australia. If differences of opinion existed as to details and policy, as they must exist, they ought never to go beyond tbe room where tne party sat. SIMPLY EXQUISITE. Sara Bernhardt Knjoyed the Bombard ment of Rio. Paris, Oct. I.—Sara Bernhardt baa returned here from South America. She was in Rio de Janeiro during tho bom bardment of that city by the rebel fleet, and says it was "simply exquisite." Mme. Bernhardt added: "We spent three days and nights in tbe roadstead. It was most exciting." Argentine Rebels Surrender. Buenos Avres, Oct. I.—The Argen tine government claims to have received information today to the effect that the revolution in ■ the republic may he considered almost at an end. It is announced officially tbat Rosario has capitulated to ths government forces. All tbe rebel leaders at Rosario aro said to bave been taken prisoners and the rebels are reported to have laid down their arms. It should be remem bered that this announcement comes entirely from government sources. RESENTED THE REMARK. A DESPERATE SHOOTING AFFRAY IN OAKLAND. Three Men Mortally Wonnded and a Fourth Seriously Hart—All the Victims but One Were In nocent Parties, Oakland, Oct. I.—A desperate shoot ing affray occurred here tonight in which throe men were fatally wounded and a fourth seriously hurt. A crowd of citizens joined tire police in the chase of the would-be murderer sending after him a fusillade of shots in tbe crowded streets. William Green and Tom Mullen were standing outside of a saloon at the corner of Seventh and Broadway, when Peter Butts, an acquaintance of the former, passed by. Green accosted Butts by asking when be got out of jail. The latter drew a revolver and shot Green who fell to the curb. A policeman then attempted to arrest Butts, who ran, firing at the officer as he ran. One of these stray bullets bit a street car conductor by the name of W. E. Beeny, fatally wounding him. Another took effect in the body of a man whoee name is unobtainable, inflicting a serious wound. Another policeman and a crowd of citizens started in pur suit of Butts. Many had revolvers and over 20 shots were sent after the fleeing fugitive. When he was finally captured it was found that five bullets had en tered bis body. Green, Beeny and Butts cannot live. Fell From a Window. Buda-Pesth, Oct. 1. —A sensation wbb caused here today by tbe Btrange deatb of the vice-president of the lower bouse of the Hungarian diet, Count Andrasßy A. Bokros.

ENGLISH REDS RAIDED. A Group of Anarchists at Manchester. The Police Have a Desperate Fight With Them. Three Sent to the Hospital and the Best to Jail, The Approaching Doom of Anarchist Pallas—Startling Disclosures Con cerning the Vienna Dyna mite Conspiracy. By the Associated Press. Manchester, England, Oct. 1. — A very lively and interesting fight between a number ot English anarchists and the police took place here today. Tbe police) had long been aware that the anarebista bad formed a group in tbe city and were holding meetings at regnlar intervals. For a long time the anarebista kept within the bonnds of law and order, in so far tbat they claimed to be simply honest workingmen meeting to discuss politics from their own standpoint. The discovery of the anarchists' plot in Vienna and the attempt to kill General Martinez Campos seems to have arousad them to a pitch of unusual excitement, for they commenced making tbinga very disagreeable for the residents in the neighborhood of their meeting place. This gave the police the desired oppor tunity and a raid upon the assembly rooms of the "reds" was made today. The raid was resisted fiercely by the anarchists. They seized chaiis and other pieces of furniture and defended themselves desperately. The police drew their batonß and a rough and tumble fight took place. During tbe battle three anarchists were so severely injured tbat they were taken to the hospital, and a number on both sides received more or less serious wounds. Several of the most desperate anarchists were taken into custody. The others managed to escape through the win dows. pallas's approaching death. Barcelona, Oct. 1. —Tbe approaching death of Pallas, the anarchist, wbo will be shot next week, is discussed through* out Spain. The police are well aware tbat he has a number of sympathizers among a certain class of the population. This has caused them to make the most thorough search for proofs of further outrages contemplated. In their in vestigation the police found positive proof that Pallas bad accomplices among foreign anarchists. An Italian named Maneiai was arrested today, charged with being an accomplice of Pallas. TnE AUSTRIAN REDS. London, Oct. 1. —A spaaial to the News from Vienna says tne examina tion of ths 12 anarchists recently arrested in connection with the plot to blow up the bouses of parliament, had most surprising results. Tbe facts in possession of tbe police cannot yet be published, as the prime mover in the conspiracy is not yet under arrest. The police bave established proof beyond a doubt that the men in custody are only the tools of an agitator believed to be a foreigner, and his dupes do not know much about bim or abont tbe spot where he can be found. GOT IT IN THE NECK. An Offleer Shot by a Burglar at Santa) Clara. San Jose, Oct. I.—Nightwatchman J. A. Menton was shot in the neck by a burglar be wae trying to arrest at Santa, Clara early this evening. Frank Jen* kins, while passing the residence of Rev. A. H. Needham heard a crash of glass in the honse. He knew something waa wrong as Needham and family were in the Methodist Episcopal church adjoin ing, Of which Needham is pastor. Jenkins notified Constable Lovell and Menton and returned with them to Needbam's house. Menton took si station at the front door and Lovell and Jenkins went to the rear. Three men were inside. One ran out the back way and was captured by Lovell and Jenk ins. Two came out the front way, and in answer to Menton's demand to sur render one fired a pistol. The bullet struck Menton in the neck. His wound is not thought to be fatal. The shot brought Jenkins and Lovell to tbe spot; several shots were exchanged with the now fleeing burglars, one of tbe shots from the latter's pistol going through tbe church window just above tbe heads of the congregation. Tbe man arrested by Lovell gives the name of James Francis, and says he baa followed fairß for several years. Sheriff Bollinger and other officers srre in pursuit of the men who escaped.
