The Herald LOS ANGELES, TUESDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 20, 1894- KOLB ON THE WARPATH. Civil War Threatened in Alabama. A Manifesto to the People of the State. Kolb Proposes to Be Sworn ia as Governor. Bis Supporters Requested to Gather at Montgum.ry to Assist Him Id Tak log the Oath—Trouble Anticipated. By the Asroclated Preis. Birmingham, Ala., Nov. 19. —Reuben F. Kolb, the defeated candidate vi the Populist party for governor of Alabama, publishes a lengthy address to tbe peo ple of Alabama in this afternoon's edi tion of tbe i'eople's Tribune of thia city, the state organ of the Kolhites end Populists, in which be declares his in tention to be inaugurated governor of tbe Btate December let and calling upon hie followers every where to gather at Montgomery on tbat day and aid him in taking bis seat. The address begins by saying that the paramount issue in the late state cam paign was honest elections, and charges that frauds were committed in 1892, He earn there was almost a universal de mand against the repetition of these frauds. The address then Bays tbat just after tbe election this year Kolb issued an ad dress stating that be had been elected, shortly after which bis leaders beld a conference. As a result of this confer ence meetings were called in every county for tbe purpose nf ascertaining the wishes of the people with reference to the alleged frauds. A convention wa 1 also called at Montgomery for November 12th, says tbe address, at which resolu tions were adopted to the effect that Kolb was elected by the qualified elec tors ; that the will of the people was set aside through the agency of election | managers and county officials, aided and 1 abetted by a corrupt judiciary. Kolb then ears that last Saturday when tbe legislature convened in joint eeeeion to couut the votes for atate officers, Henator (ioodwyn arose to lile a protest signed by 44 Populist members of the legislature against eouuting the vote of certain counties wheie it Is al leged frauds were committed, when Speaker Clark of the house ruled Goodwyn out ol order and ordered him to take his seat, calling upon the door keeptrtoeeat bim. ihe address then conclndea: "Tbe official cunt, as declated by the speaker, gives Oates a majority of 27," 272. Election frauds committed iv the counties named in the protest of Senator Goodwyn, of which we have positive and sworn evidence, would be more than sufficient to wipe out all the majorities claimed for O.tiss. The foregoing con sidered, and in view of the existing conditions in Alabama, I have deter mined to discharge my full duty to the people of Alabama. I will not fail to repeat the pledges which I have made to the people who have given me their confidence and elood by meso heroically ' during tbe past four yeare. You, fellow 1 citizena, have twice elected me governor jof this state and thia time, by the grace of God and the help of the good people of the Btate of Alabama, I will be gov ernor. December 1 is the day fixed by law for the inauguration of the governor. On tbat day I Bball be iv Montgomery for the purpose of taking the oatb of office and my seat as governor. And I hereby, call upon tbe good oeople in every part ol the etats to aid me in all proper and peaceable meth ods to uphold the law and eet aside tbe power of traitors and nsurpers in Alabama. I appeal to my friends and eupportera from all parts ol the state to be in Mont gomery on tbe Ist day ot December, 1891, there and then to give their sup port in a lawful and peaceable manner to vindicate tbeir liberties. I counsel against any unlawful demonstration, I bnt aek the co-ooeration of freemen in tbo necessary effort to enlorce the law and carry out the will of the people. (Signed) "R. F. Kolb." The arrest of Kolb for treason ie not improbable, and if his followers under take to seat bim. which, judging from the sentiments expressed at tbeir meet ing in Montgomery laat week, (hey will undoubtedly do. it ie believed tbere will be serious tumble. Montgomery, Ala., Nov.l9.—Governor Jones was about to take a train for Mo bile to take part in the ceremonies ut 'ending the reception of the cruiser Montgomery when he was shown a tele gram from Birmingham in regaidtothe Kolb manifealo. He declined to be in terviewed, but when shown the dispatcti about the Kolb manifesto wherein X ub I Bays that by tbe grace of God he will take bis seat on December lit, quietly remarked: • William C. 'bites bas been elected governor by the fairly expreeeed will of a majority of tbe people of Alabama, and haa been co declared by tbe general assembly, the only tribunal which has the right or authority under the consti tution to declare the result. It is my duty to see that he ie duly installed, nnd by the grace of God he will be. I do not anticipate that any number of men will bo foolish enough to heed I Kolb's advice, but if they do. tbe conse quences will be on their own beads." Pacing; Match.

S. Richard son, charged with the lynching of bix negroes near Millington, Term., last August, received a severe set back today when Butch McCarver went on the stand and stated that he is an infidel. He is therefore incompetent under tbe laws of Tennessee to give testimony before a jury in a capital case. Butch Howard is the man upon whom the state mostly relied for a conviction. The ptosecutinu openly charged that McCarver perjured himself when he eaid he did not believe in God. The attorney general had no doubt Butcb's testimony would be sufficient to hang tbe two men ou trial, SB well as three or four others. Immediately after McCarver's sensa tional statement to the court today he was arrested on a bench warrant charg ing him with perjury, it is also given ont by Attorney General Patterson that he will immediately proceed against J. A. McCarver, tbe sheriff of tbis county, and tho father of Butch, to re move bim from office. WKtliY WALKERS. Kovfil aod Thvimn'4 Trnmp Around tha World.

Cleveland Going to Throw Light on It. He Will Touch Upon It in His Message. The Mediation Proposition Closed for the Present. Japan Bas Not Y>t Ace-pled the Offer. China Must Show the White Flag OS Oue of the Condi tions. By tbe Associated Press. Washington, Nov. 19.—The statement was made in congressional circles today that President Cleveland's message to to congreeß would throw light on tbe China-Japan question and would fore stall any resolution of inquiry. Ab the eecretary of slate, unlike any other cabinet officers, makes no annual report to congress, the president's message ordinarily deals with the affairs in which this government has any part, and as the recent negotiations with China and Japan are the most impor tant questions the department has had in some time, it is concluded tbat Mr. Cleveland will make clear the position of this government. Up to this time there is no official information on tbe question, and tbe state department has not even stated officially that negotia tions with China and Japan are in progress. Tbe reading of the president's mes aage ia the firat buaineas of congress, so that it would precede tbe contemplated introduction of resolutions of inquiry by Representative Bellamy Storer. It ia the belief of those familiar witb Presi dent Cleveland's position against for eign entanglements tbat snch reference as he may make to thia subject in hia message will be on the ground of hu manity, urging that while this govern ment does not reach abroad for conquest and acquisition, it can well adopt an enlightening policy wbicb will aid in maintaining tbe peace and progress of the world. CI.rSED FOR THE PRESENT. The China-Japan incident, so far as the United States offer of mediation is concerned, is considered closed for the present by those in position to under stand the situation. At the Btate de partment and atthHChineae and Japan ese iegatione there is only negative in formation, to the effect that no positive answer to tbe American suggestion of mediation had been received. Yet well informed persons say Japan has made its position clear in such a way as in avoid tbe embarrassment of a positive declination, and yet show that accept ance has to be based on certain definite conditions. THE ESSENTIAL CONSIDERATION. It is believed that the essential con sideration on which Japan would con sent to any mediation is that China will raise the white flag of truce, tbe emblem recogeized the world over as an indica tion that a contestant wants to treat tor terms of peace. China has not yet made any direct offer to tbe Japanese, and the latter are not disposed to con sider a roundabout offer which over looks the recognized international em blem oi tbe wbite flag. THE CAMPHOR SUPPLY. Japan Will Have a Monopoly If She Acquires Formosa. Tacoma, Wash,, Nov. 19.—Japan will have control of the world's supply of camphor should it get the island of Formosa aa part of its indemnity from China, according to Anthony T. Pritch aid, wbo lived many years in Asia. "Camphor sold lor less than 10 cents a pound 20 years ago," he says, "but it bas advanced to over fl a pound. "It is generally believed by Japanese merchants and travelers tbat if Japan had not baen drawn into tbe war witb China at this time, it would have seized tbe Hawaiian islands, on the ground that tbere are more Japanese than any other nationality. These men look npon the move to secure Formosa as in line with Japan's policy to strengthen her self as 'the England of tbe Pacific, and as a preliminary to securing the Philip pine islands and tbe Hawaiian islands, should the United States fail to annex them." Protection for Foreigners. Shanghai, Nov. 19.—The viceroy of Tien Tain ia placing Boldiers around the foreign settlement to protect it against depredations of soldiers from mutinous camps, If tbe Japanese take Port Arthur itis expected they will land en route t) Pekin, 40 miles south of Taku.

The managemtnt of the movement ia largely in the bands ol Senators Jones, Stewart and l'ettigrew, and they are looking to Senator Cameron as a presidential candidate in the event o t.o birth of the new party.

Thus they hope to centralize the entire free silver strength and much of ths labor vote of tbo country. .My information is positive in tbe declaration tbat the Re publican party will be forced to either adopt a silver plank or be destroyed. This intention to rule or ruin ie tbe fun damental tenet of the movement. It is said that Senator Cameron bus already consented to join the movement. Washington, Nov. 19. —The renewed reports that Senator Cameron has giveu hia conaent to be the presidential can didate of a "Protection and Free Silver" party, meets witb an emphatic denial from clobs and intimate friends of the senator here who are in a position to speak with authority. Mr. Cameron said recently to an Associated Press reporter, that while he was a silver man he waa none the less a Republican and it was as a Republican tbat he hoped to see the white metal suitably recognized.
