Ban Francisco, Jan. 4.—A1l communi
cation with Sacramento by rail ceased
at noon today and in consequenoe the
programmed hegira of tbe statesmen ia
indefinitely postponed. The laat over
land to arrive waa the Loa Angelea
which left there at 2 o'clock on Thurs
day afternoon. Qufte a contingent ar
rived with it from Southern California.
From Los Angslea Aasemblymen Bulla
•nd Llewellyn, and Senators Simpson
•nd Androus, Asaemblymen Bennett of
Ventura and Barker of Santa Barbara.
With the party were Judge D. P. Hatch
and J. F. Crank of Los Angslea, and
John Morton of Sau Bernardino. Tbia
accession to the Perkina ranks created
tbe first Perkins boom of the day and
bis stock went up at once. During the
afternoon Senator Simpson called on
United States Senator Perkins and re
ported to hie confreres that ths senator
was well satisfied with tbe outlook and
had expressed bimßslf aa confident of
being elected on the firat ballot.
To the casual observer, this ia the
quietest senatorial campaign on record,
but this is only a surface indication. To
tbe initiated, tbe hand of tbe Southern
Pacific is clearly outlined, and ia the
background the shadow of Colonel Ma
zuma looma up like a lighthouse in a
fog. Every old time railroad lobbyist is
on tho ground, qusitly endeavoring to
create the impreeaion that Senator Per
kins ia not in it, and many are the argu
ments advanced in aupport of the rail
road theory of attack on him; the one
most oiten advanced ia that tbe Repub
lican party of California needa a man
younger id ye«ra and more aggressive in
advancing tbe interests of the state.
Meanwhile suggestions of men to fill the
place are springing up like mushrooms.
Tbe latest namtea added to tbe liat are
Frank Coomben of Napa, Irvin M. Scott
and W. W. Bovnera of San Diego, whom
the Examiner mentions tbia morning aa
• strong possible, candidate.
The true inwtirdneae of Bowers' can
didaoy famishes an example of the
methods of tbe railroad in bringing for
ward candidates. Wednesday at mid
night a coterie of railroad politicians
met in a back room in Jesse Marks'
resort, a Ds Yoang headquarters, to
compare notes. Bering the aeesion it
was suggested that something ought to
be done to advance Tom Flint's inter
ests after he finished hia term in the
senate. That tbe prominence he would
gain through filling Millard'a place in
tbe organization of the eenate, would be
at trump card for future uee, and that by
springing Bowers for senator they could
doub'e-ahot the turn, draw off some of
Perkins' strength in the south and put a
peg in against Bowers when he cornea
up for re-nomination for oongress two
years from now, when it may be posaible
to win oue tbe district for Tom Eliot of
San Benito. Straightway the Bowers'
boom was launched. One of tno moat
active aad at the same time effective
anti-Perkins worknra is Tom Field of
Monterey, who is everywhere and all
over at all times.
From soma mysterious aource trans
portation to Sacramento comes forth in
large sections and cut rates are at a dis
Millard's illness bas ceased to call for
comment and tbe statement is frsely
made that tbe pre-arranged programme
will be carried ont by Flint, whose
political future is eaid to depend on bis
ability to carry out instructions.
The Oakland Enquirer, published in
Senator Parkins' home city, is watching
the senatorial fight very closely, and
makes this startling announcement in
its edition last evening;
"The Enquirer does not wish to be
considered sensational, but the situation
aa it exists is nndeniably grave. A well
known Oakland politician who haa bad
railroad associations in timea paat, waa
■eked if tbe contest was not getting hot,
and answered, "I should think so, when
they are offering $2000 a vote." Who
"tbey" were be did not state, even if be
knew, but he did assart that parties
were reaching oat for the votes of Ala
meda county members of tha legislature,
to take them away from Senator Per
kins, to whom tbey ware pledged. Is it
possible there is any member-elect of
the legislature in tbis connty so baia as
to violate his pledges?"
Tha Rumored I>a Urlppa Tnrma Oat to Bo
The troth hat at lait leaked oat about
the condition of Lieutenant-Governor
Millard, For political, or other rea
•oni, the report haa been •iiMllttd Ikit
Mr. Millard ia KikTertas from a Blight
attack of the grippe, and that he ex
pected to assume tbe duties of his office
in about 10 days.
The Herald has ascertained that Mr.
Millard's illness is due to a aevsre attack
of pneuhiuuia, and that ita ravages have
completely exhausted hia conatitution.
Although hia condition ia nit critical,
yet a slight relapse may be followed by
fatal results.
Yesterday the lieutenant-governor
waa resting easy, but the fever had not
been subdued, and tbecongeation of tbe
left lung haa not been stopped. Two
days ago be bad a raging fever, nnd that
left him totally exhausted, so thai be is
now very weak. Hia temperature has
at no time been leas than 101. No one
is allowed to see him, although his
many friends visit tbo bonse in great
numbers to inquire about his condition.
Dr. Davidson, the attending physician,
was interviewed yeaterday and acknowl
edged that his patient was suffering
from pneumonia.
"It ia impossible for a physician to
state exactly," aaid Dr. Davidson, "how
I coon a patient will recover from an at-
I tack of pneumonia. Mr. Millard will
l certainly not be able to leave hia bouse
within 10 daya. His recovery deponds
entirely upon his recuperative powers
when hs gels up. It is true that Mr,
Millard is very weak and that the fever
has not left him, bnt 1 do not anticipate
any fatal results. lam sure nothing so
serious has developed thus far. It may
be possible that Mr. Millard may go to
Sacramento soma time tbia month, but
no physician can tell to a day how soon
a patient will recover entirely."
Mrs. Millard, who is in constant at
tendance on the sick man, atated that
her husband had made up his mind
that he could be able to leave for Sacra
mento by the 15th of this month and
was sure tbat ahs would attend the in
auguration ball.
That Mr. Millard knew some days ago
that he would be unable to assume the
preaidency of the eenate lor some time,
ia shown by tbe fact that Senator Ad
drouß of Pomona held a protracted con
sultation with Mr. Millard prior to his
departure lor the north; Senator An
droua was told tbe wishes of Mr. Mill
ard in regard to the organization of tbe
eenate, and it ia aaid that he waa tbe
hearer of a mesßage from Mr. Millard to
several of tbe prominent senators rela
tive to the lieutenant-governor's desires
in regard to the work of tbe aenate.

By The Herald's Leased Wire.
Woodland, J»n. 4—Mr. Cook re
sumed wudii -examination in tbe
Appelman case tbis morning and it was
not concluded until the hour ol ad
journment tbis evening. Mr. Cook
adopted a line of questioning intended
to test the memory of the witness.
General Hart objected. Mr. Cook said
tbe witness was very circumstantial in
relating all tha incidents of July 11th,
so much so tbat hs had a suspicion that
the story had been rehearsed. He pro
posed to test his memory. The court
held that the line of questioning wsb
proper cross-examination.
Mr. Cook then led tbe witness
through all the intricate mazes of hie
movements on the 11th of July, in tbe
course or which thero were some dis
crepancies between bis statement and
his direct testimony, and fiat contradic
tion of one witness for the defense
in relation to the meeting ol the
defendant and aome children near Mrs.
Matheny'e bouse. Cook tried to get
some information from the witness by
which it could he ascertained what tbe
name of the man wae he mat in front of
ths Tremont house. Appelman bad
conversed with tbe engineer, but did
not know bis name and could not tell
anything about his tuns.
absent witnesses,
"I slipped him on the shoulder."
continued ths witness, "and asked him
if be had been called. Tbe engineer
answered 'No, and they will not call
me, as they know I will not come.'
Just then we heard the train pulling
cut and the engineer aaid: 'There goes
that scab Clark.' "
All efforts of Cook to get some infor
mation by which tbe engineer could be
identified were futile. He then tried
another tack.
"Do yon know where this man Due
ton ia who aays he went with you to the
swimming pond?" asked Mr. Cook.
"1 do not," replied he, "bnt I have
beard tbat he and 'Judge' Spaulding
left for Portland supplied witb good
clothes and plenty of money and passes
furnished by A. J. Fillmore." Mr.
Cook tangled the witness considerably
when he began to question him about
reading the news of the wreck in tbe
papers. He said that at noon on the
12th of July be bought an Fxaminer of
that date and read the accoun . The
Fxaminer of tbe 12th did not reach Sac
ramento to until the 13th and could
not not have reached Yuba county,
where witness waa before tbe 14th.
Witness bought and read tbe papers
every day but he could not remember
any particular article he read except
Sherburne's testimony. All tbe San
Francisco papers containing tbat testi
money were presented to bim, but he
failed to recognize in any of them the
article he had read.
Witnesß tripped again when Mr.tjook
a»ked him if he had Been K. Bucking

July lltb, and if he had a gun on his
shoulder and told Mr. Buckingham be

"No, that was on July 10th," replied

did not return until after 1 o'olock.
created a sensation by pointing to a let
ter on tbe table iv front of Mr. Cook and
exclaiming, "I know where you stole

Mr. Cook held it up to ahow that it
was addressed to himself, and the court
sharply reprimanded tbe witneas. De

While at Campo Wilson learned that
the Mexican gendarmes had captured
about 150 horses in a bunch, which had
been driven across the line by two

"Two posnea have gone out. They
are undo up of good citizena. They are
fully turned with ehotguns, rifles and
revolvers. They go to clean out the
hoho camps along tbe north levee. It
is our Intention to hang a burglar as
soon as we find bins. VVe will not take
him from a jail a!t«r he is onoe iv, but
if we meet him in the custody of police
man on the utreet we will take him away
from them. We will be particular, of
course, to ascertain that he is the right
man; it be haa burglarized a house, if
he has attempted to burglarize a house,
if he lias etoud up and robbed a man on
the street or attempted to do bo, or if
we can fasten the crime ou him, ws
•hall string him up.
"it is not our intention to give the
names ul thoee wbo have gone out in
search oi these men in this terrifia
storm. We do not want to advertise
them to the world. But what they will
do will be known aa the work of thia
committee, the executive oflicera of
whict all ths citizens know. Yon may
publish this, so that all the good people
of the city will be informed, and so that
the criminal element now iv tbe city
will be informed."
