"Registrar Evans Is an appointee of
Governor Markham's, and can be re
moved by tb'at official if hedoeß not file
Inn returns, and tbe governor can ap
point some one who will obey the iaw.
From wont I know of Governor Mark

abiding ollioinl."
The governor-elect says be intends to
take his seat on tbe 7tli of January and
thai hs will be sworn in.

With It.
San Francisco, Doc. 21. —Sir Charlea
Rivers Wilson, ths special delegate of
the British holders of Central Pacific
railway ssenrlties, arrived in the city
thia afternoon. Sir Charles represent)
(JO per cent of the $68 000,000 ol Central
Pacific stook held in Eogland, Holland
and the United Stales, and bli mission
here is to ascertain the precise conditio i
of the railroad's affairs.
In an interview today he expressed
his dissatisfaction with tbe Keilly fund*
ing bill. He thinks on the basis of 3
per cent as proposed :n tbe bill there
would be nothing left for the stockhold
ers and he thinkß the bondholders have
been having things all their own way
long enough. Sir Charles says tho
foreign stockholders are also dissatisfied
with tbe present rule by which tbe
Southern Pacitio operates the Central
Pacific Under the former syßtem the
stockholders were guaranteed annual
dividends, bat under the operation ol
the present contract not a dollar goes
out for this purpose.
Tbe reason for this, Sir Charles says,
is that although tbe foreigners own a
majority of tbe shares the stook is un
registered, and they bad no voioe in de
termining the present nrraatgasnent, and
in fact their wishes were not even con
sulted when the existing contract waß
under consideration.

Tha Kank«r Will Malp to Frimi San
Franciico** New Chartnr.
San Francisco. Dec. 21.—The free
holders of the city and comity of San
Francisco met this afternoon for organ
ization. I. W. Hellman was present,
not only with his certificate of election,
bat with a communication from his
awyer, B. F. Bergen, in which he is
authorized to take his seat as a board
member and fulfill tbe duties to which
he has been elected.
Bergen holds that Hellman is in honor
bound to act with tbe board. He says
the law required that 15 freeholders be
elected; that so far as anybody knows
15 were elected and that he should not
retire, thus invalidating the work of tbe
board should it proceed without him.
He says tbat he (Hellman) is a lawful
member of the board until the court de
cides that he is not, and this decision
cannot be brought about except by the
attorney-general of tbe state bringing
the matter before the supreme court
and this, he can only do npon the pe
tition of citizens. Therefore, tbe
opinicn concludes, Mr. Hellman is in
honor hound to serve until so enjoined
by the court.

Tip'ka, Knn , Doc. 21.—The most
plausible theory regarding the murder
of Mrs. Mutsoa appears to be that she
was murdered by some ono familiar
with her wars and who knew she kept
money in tbe house, collocted each
mouth from half a dozen tenements.
Mrs. Matain's husband, from whom she
is separated but not divorced, lives in
San Diego.
She was expecting him to visit her in
Topeka some time this month. A mes
sage was received thin afternoon from
San Diego: "Mr. Matßon is otill in tho
oity, but has beard nothing ol the mur
der. Your message has been tent to
his house, about two miles out." He is
a music teacher.
Today letters were found in Mrs. Mat
son's house written by her husband
from California in November. They
told of come domeßtio trouble between
the two and expiessed contrition ou the
part of her husband and desire to re
turn to Topeka, which place be left
eight years ago.
San Dihoo, Dec. 21.—The husband of
Mrs. A. 1). Matson, who was foully mur
dered some days ago in her house in
Topeka, Kan., and discovered Thnriiday

was when he was notified by Attorney
L. A. Wright, whe received word from a
friend at Topeka that Mr. Matson was
to be found here. Mr. Matson said that
he had no idea of the identity of the
murderers as he knew of no trouble be
tween his wife and others, and in fact be
had been away for several months and
did not know of the domestic arrange
ments at his home. He said tbat the
last letter from his wife, received some
weeks ago, waa to the effect that she in
tended to go to their ranoh, some 125
miles from Topeka, on business. It was
there, when Mr. Matson first heard of
her murder, that he supposed the deed
was committed.

session lasting for several hoars, the
board of police, which has been investi

the licenses granted to the Palaoethsa -
ter, Howard Atheneum and tbe Grand

The reason given for revoking tbe
three licenses is that the managers of
those theaters do not pay special atten

concert programmes. The licenses were
granted by the board of aldermen, but
under an act of tbe legislature of 1894
the board oi police is given authority to

as a viotory by tbs leaders of tha move
