San Francisco to Be the Home Port THE QUESTION OF ROUTE. Clam Spreekela ud Others Talk or Ter minal Fnollltlaa —The Company Will Ba Incorporated at Ouce, San Francisco, Feb. B.— Tbe two million mark in the San Joaquin Valley load fund was handsomely passed today and a substantial sum secured as a start er on the third million. The members of the committee now unhesitatingly state that it is not their intention to start the work until at least $4,000,000 has been secured in this city, and they are laying all their plans now with that object in view. It is the belief of a majority of the committee that Cluua Spreckols should not be called upon to fulfill his generous oiler to double his subscription to the fund just at this tims. They argue that, as the road is to be built iv the interest of the people, the more persons intet ested financially in its construction, the better it will bs. It is believed by these gentlemen that every citizen who has means to invest—no matter how small the amount—should be given an oppor tunity to do so before the question of doubling subscriptions should be con sidered. THE TWO MILLION MARK. The subscriptions today foot up $127, --500, which, added to the sum of $1,929, --500 previously acknowledged, shows a fund on the books of $2,057,000. G. 6. Bloss of Atwater and H. F. Geer of Turlock were among the callers at the committee rooms. They represent the Mitchell estate, comprising over 100,000 acres in the San Joaquin valley, and are much interested tn the proposed line. "We haven't any money to give," said Mr. Geer, "as the Sonthern Pacifio has exhausted us in that raspect; but the road can get anything it wants in the valley in the way of rights of way or depot facilities." The question of incorporation was taken np by the committee today and it was deoided to at once proceed with the work of preparing the papers. There are many things to be done in the near future, which, if attended to by the present committee would not be legal, and it is for the purpose of avoid ing complications of this oharacter that incorporation papers will bo tiled as soon as possible. THE ROUTE. While the members of the committee are not saying much on the subject of the route, it has been pretty accurately ascertained that there is no division, praotically, in the general belief that the road should start from this city. ' Wo are not going into tbe country to find a starting point," eaid one of tbe members of that body, and that seems to be the sentiment of a maprity of his associates . Tbe opinions of a number of gentle men are given below as to the proper starting place for the road. These an swers were given to a direct question as o what psint, in the minds of those in terrogated, tha road should be started from, all things considered: G. H. Urabsen—l can only see one proper terminus for tho competing road, and that is San Frandieco. lam also in favor of having tbe road go through San Jose and thence into the San Joa quin valley. Claus Spreokels—lt will depend en tirely on circumstances where we make the terminus, and I do not caret) ex press an opinion at the present mo ment. We shall make diligent inquiries as to the feasibility of the different routes and as to the advantages offsred us by the people along the routes, and these points may have somo bearing on tbe terminus matter. John Rosenfisld —If San Franoisco puts up the bulK of tbs mousy it should have the preference. Isaac Upham—l think yon can Bafely say that the terminus of tho new rail road will be in San Francisco. There are two considerations which will enter into our calculations. The ii rst is what inducements may bs offsred by the va towusonthe routes which have been propossd; the second is tbe adaptabil ity of the country through which we will have to pass. We shall not go around Robin Hood's barn in either case, but I am confident that San Fran cisco will be the home port of our trains. San Jose in Line. San Josk, Feb. B.—At a meeting of tbe board of trade this evening, Presi dent Andrews was ordered to appoint a committee of five to appear before tbe projectors of tbe proposed San Joaquin Valley railroad, and endeavor to make arrangements with them to have a branch line of the road bnilt from San Franoisco through Santa Clara valley to Fresno. The committee will be ap« pointed tomorrow and will go to San Francisco Monday or Tuesday. They will report back either to tbe board or to a meeting to be called for (hat pur pose. The first subscription for stock in the new road went forward from this city today. It was from the local stationary and locomotive engineers, and was for 50 shares of stock. STOCKTON END. Subscriptions Coml*ig: Iv and Prograu Koported by Uoinmlttee. Stockton, Feb. B.—At a meeting of the Stookton Commercial association to night the executive committee made a partial report of the work accomplished. They are still onwilling to make public all of the subscriptions to the fund, but they said that the list would be headed by the Stockton banks with a subscrip tion of $15,000, followod by that of the California Navigation and Improvement company, who are down for $5000, and by R. C. Sargent, who signed for a like amount and will double it if a double amount is to be raised. The following officers were elected for the first year: P. A. Buell, president; C. J. Jackson, vice-president; Urrin S. Henderson, secretary, and W. W. West bay, treasurer. MAN AND GEMS GONE. A GAY TRAVELING MAN DROPS OUT OF SIGHT. A. Harconnt and 187000 Worth or Dia monds and Mono? Disap pear. San Francisco, Feb. B.—A handsome Englishman, named A. liarcourt, has suddenly disappeared from this city, carrying with him $7000 worth of dia monds from two trusting jewelry firms. He also forged several checks. He recently came from New York with strong letters of recommendation from eastern houses, and secured a posi tion with the Hall Safe and Look com pany. He was successful as a salesman, and on hie tatters secured two lots of diamonds from different jewelry houses to carry as a Bide line. With these, valued at $7000, he has disappeared, and detectives are looking for him everywhere. IBS PACIFIC KOADS. Naxt Move for tha Govsrnraant to Taka Fof*«a*loo. Washington, Fob. B.—Tbe next move of the western members who desire the government to take possession of the bond-aided Pacific railroads will ba to try to prevent them from disposing of their granted lands until thoir financial relations with the government are set tled. Representative Caminotti of Cali fornio has a bill which will be passed upon by the publio lands committee at the next meeting, to forfeit all land un patented when the companies defaulted in payment of their bonds, and to sus pend proceedings on application for pa tents in cases of companies bankrupt or in the hands of receivers. Tha Pacific railroad ante provided for forfeiture of these lands to the government in case the aided companies default. Camin etti estimated that 20,000,000 acres of grant lands to tbe Pacific railroads re main unpatented, and argues that the government will allow valuable assets to Blip away from it by permitting title to any of this land to pass from the c >m - panics before tha question of foreclosure has been settled. ML Kill i:i!ll HIS COCBIN. A Deteotlve Pari th» Peunlty of Hla Crime. Birmingham, Ala,, FeD, B.—Eugene Byars, the well known dotective who murdered his cousin, Sergeant Eugene Walker of the United States army, at Behriog park, near hare, January 6, 1894, was hanged in the jail yard today in the presence of a hundred people. Walker had just served flvo years in the army at Fort Niobrara, Nebraska, and was en route home with $1000 iv his pocket when Byers enticed him ofT and shot and robbed him. On the scaffold Byars protested his inno cence, Baying that be bad left Walker in the city at 0 o'clock on the evening of the murder, and did not see him again until at the undertaker's. He swore before God that an innocent man was being hanged, but was roadv to die and blamed no one except the newspaparr. Byars died game, his neck being broken. He leaves a family.

What a Canvass of Senate and Assembly Shows, THE EXECUTIVE MANSION. Governor Bndd and slumbers of Both Housee ara Working* la Har mony — Tha Road Uongresa. Special to The Herald. Sackamknto, Feb. B.—A careful can* vass of the assembly and senate leaves little doubt that the bill to establiah a commission to investigate alleged politi cal frauds In Sin Francisco and olse« where in the state will be defeated. Politics apparently cut no figure in this matter, as Democrat! and Republicans are opposed to the measure on one hand end are united for it on the other. Timothy Guy Phelps, who is a Re publican, favors the investigation; so do Ensign, Waymire and one or two other Republicans, aud Bledsoe, Healey and Reid, Democrats, Bat the opposi tion inoludes, in the assembly, all the southern members and many from the north and even San Francisco. Iv the senate Arms, Burke, Gesfoid and other Democrats stand with Orr, Androas, Hart and other Republicans in opposi tion. The groat objection urged is the immense cost of the investigation at a time when every dollar is being cut off appropriations for evary other purpose. Till governor's mansion. A bill to purchase a governor's resi dence wa» reported advorsely. but there is a change of sentiment, and it is more than likely the governor will bs given $60,000 for that purpose. The govornor and legislature ure working most har moniously, and the governor Baid today in an addreas to the good roads conven tion that he believod California had never had a better legislature. On the other hand, Republicans all speak high ly of Budd. Senator Ford considers him an earnest, hard worker, and says it is the universal Bentiment that there should be no friction between the ox ac tive and the legislature, and the chances are that any appointments made by the governor will be continued without op position by the senate. The appropriation to furnish the new wardi of the insane asylum at High lands was put through the assembly under a suspension of the rules in 25 minutes by Speaker Lynch, and Gov ernor Bndd announced ho would sign the bill as soon as it was presented to him. The governor announoea he will make an inspecting tour of the state in stitutions soon after the legislature adjourns. He will thoroughly inspect each one and make removals and changes wherever he finds it necoseary. Neither senate nor assembly did any thing of importance today. The gen eral appropriation bill was considered in the assembly, and an effort made to re duce the salary of the governor's private secretary, but the amendment failed. Tbe appropriation bill is $2,000,000, nnder the controller's estimates, and the prospects are it will be increased very little and will pass substantially as reported. If it does, and other appro priations are kept as low as now seems certain, the expenses of the state will be reduced about $3,U00,000 for two years. Numerous inquiries are coming from coyote-sculp bounty claimants as to when they will get their money. It is evi dent the governor does not particularly favor any appropriation, but as the claims must be paid, he will probably sign a bill to pay the claims up to the day of the repeal of the bounty. This will take nearly $200,000 out of the treasury. THE ROAD CONVENTION. The road convention passed n resolu tion favoring a law that tires on wagons carrying from 2000 to 3000 pounds be not less than three and a half inches, and half an inch added for each 2000 pounds. Tbe office of state engineer is recom mended; also tbe following: "la our judgment such legislation should be eu acted as will permit boards of supervis ors to employ competent road engineers in the carrying out and construction of new roads, such engineers to be em ployed at tbe will and under the imms diate direction of the supervisors. We do not believe in the passage of a gen eral law making it mandatory for each county to employ a permanent county road engineer. If a law can be framed that will not be special legislation, we would suggest tbe passage of a measure permitting Buoh oounties as may desire to provide for a permanent county road engenser." the woman suffragists. A large audience filled the assembly chamber to listen to addresses by TEN PAGES. woman suffrageists. Laura DeForce Gordon presided principally, and the speech of the evening was by Phcebe Coozins. She said the country was ruled by corporations; that it was a govern ment of oorporatious, for corporations and by corporations. She said the Keilly funding bill was a scheme to enslave the people. Funding and bonding schemes are all intended to crush tho people in the interest of corporations. Her re marks were loudly applauded. The military committee has resolved to abolish all brigadior generals and staffs, but one, and uaite the militia of tbe state under one general, who will probably be appointed from San Fran cisco. Owing to fear of a strike shortly, a special effort is being made for a large appropriation for the militia. THE SENATE. A Short Horning Smlon-Xtv Bills Introduced. Sacramento, Feb. B.—ln the sonata today Whitehurst introduced a bill to legulate the publication of proposed coaatitutional amendments. It does away with the publication of such pro posed amendments in newspapers, and provides that instead they shall be printed in the offiao of the state printer, sent to the various county clerks and mailed to all registered voters in the same manner that sample ballota are now mailed. Senator I'arkhurst de clares that under such a law the publi cation of proposed amendments to the constitution would be reduced to $15, --000, as against the $110,000 which the newspapers are now claiming for their services. A similar bill is now pending in the Benate. The committee on retrenchment and public expendi turoa submitted a report in connection with the statement ren dered by the committee which vißited the normal schools and asylums in Southern California last week. The retrenchment committee reoom menda the scaling down of salaries of the institutions roferred to In accord ance with the provisions of a bill intro duced a few days ago by Senator Sey mour. It says that, owing to the widespread financial distress, it is neces sary to curtail expenditures. The people cf San Diego have been desiring the erection of a state normal school at that place and bava offered a number cf desirable sites, but the com mittee is opposed to accepting any of them at this time. It recommends, howover, that if another normal school is established, that it be located at San Di ego. A bill introduced by Senator Aram is to reorganize the state supreme court. It provides that the supreme court shall continue to consist of a chief justice and six associate justices, and that, in addition, there shall ba three appellate district courts of appeal, each to consist of thrso justices. The state is divided into three districts, one embracing Fresno county and the counties aonth; one embracing San Francisco and the other bay counties, and one embracing the rest of tho state. These appellate diatriot courts are given jurisdiction over appealed cases of lesser im portance. Senator Gesford's bill providing for a classification of and fixing the salaries of judges of the superior court, was passed by n vote of 28 to 22. The horse racing at Agricultural park proved a strong attraction, and at noon, after a lively discussion in which the meiits of fast horses and speedy legislators were oompared, tbe senate adjourned until tomorrow morn ing. Immediately after adjournment Gen • eral Stone, road engineer of the United States agricultural department, ad dressed the senators on the question of f;ood roads. He referred to the work before the good roads convention now in session here, and asserted that tbe report of that convention, together with tho report of the legislative commission now Bitting, would come ap to the weight and force of the whole peop'e of the state. He urged the legislature in framing the road laws to carefully con sider these reports when they should be made. IN THE ASSEMBLY. Constitutional Amendment to Kapeal tha Mortigag.) Tax l>ere*t«<l. Sacramento. Feb. B.—ln the assembly this morning the proposed constitutional amenument to repeal the tax on mort gages was defeated by a vote of 41 ayes, 28 noes, thus failing of the required two third--' majority. Pendleton gave notice of reconsideration. The assembly passed as an nrgenoy measure the senate bill appropriating $10 000 for furnishing a new ward in Highlands inßane asylum. There was another short ekirmiah over the assembly attaches. Bledsoe called up the retrenchment committee's report recommending the discharge of IS assembly employees. Pendleton of Los Angeles, who is against the re trenchment proposed,succeeded in forc ing a reference of tho tho report to the committee on attaches. The motion was put and carried with a rusti. Speaker Lynch ruled that the ayes were loudest, and division of the house wae prevented. It ie tha general oninioa the resolution will be permiUed to die in the committee.

B.—The senator* plowed through enow drifts to (At to the) capltol today and the effect of the blia« zard was shown by the aoant attendance in the galleries. The condition of the Washington poor, resulting from the storm and intense oold, indneed Mr. Sherman, Republican of Ohio, to intro duce a bill appropriating $10,000 and making it immediately available for the) relief of the poor. Formalities] were dispensed with and the bill was paieed withont opposition or debate. The vice-president announced the re« caption of a message from tha president* As the clerk began reading thsra waa • sudden suspension of the buss of com ment throughont the chamber and marked attention was given to tbe docu ment. Occasionally there was • smile on the face of one senator as he noted the de cisive manner in which the president set forth his purposes. Mr. Hill com* mented occasionally with Mr. Vest as tbe reading of the message proceeded. Mr. Sherman was apparently one of the most interested listanera to the message. He turned to Mr. Wilson as the reading closed, and the two held an animated conversation, which brought Mr. Manderson, Mr. Perkins and a group of Republican senators aronnd them. The Democratic senators soon formed in caucus and discussed tha president's utterances. They were joined by Mr. Frye, Mr. Lodge and others from tbe Republican side in the exobange of views. Mr. Gorman and Mr. Aldrioh rose at the same time to more the reference of the message to the finance committee, and it was so referred. Tbe rontine business of tha senate was then resumed, but it received lim ited attention as the message proved to be the main topio of tbe day. The Hawaiian cable amendment to the dip* iomatio and oonanlar appropriation bill was then discussed. Unanimous consent was given that the vote on the cable amendment an 4 the diplomatic and oonaa'.ar bill ba taken at 2:30 o'olock tomorrow. TUB ISLAND CABLE. The president's msasage giving Mr. Willis' latest dispatches as to tha sen tences of death in Hawaii was than read, amid impressive silence. Mr. Hale said the tragic and melanc holy results foreshadowed by Minister, Willis showed tbe imperative need of a cable. It would have averted or post* poned this tragedy. Mr. Teller said the Hawaiian govern-, merit was acting far beyond tbe demands of the occasion. The oircumstancei would shook tbe world. Mr. Teller hoped the committee on foreign rela tions would inaugurate steps toward In-, tervention in order that the death pen alties be averted. "Bat," said Mr. Frye, "they oan hang every man in the Hawaiian islands be-* fore you can get word to them." Most of tbe speech of Mr. Whits waa devoted to the cable, bnt at the close he Bpoke of the president's message con cerning the death sentences in Hawaii. "I do not bslieve these sentences have been imposed with a view to thait being carried out," said he. -'The gov ernment of Hawaii must be bnilt on something more substantial than sand stained by blood." Mr. White said this government should intervene whether those nnder sentence of death were Amerioana or not, but it was certainly our duty to In tervene if any Americans were nnder sentence. The cable proj«ct was farther dig. cnßsed by Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Per kiue. OLD OI.ORV ON THE SEAS.

Mr. Morgan supported the cable amendment. Referring to Mr. WillU' latest dispatch, Mr. Morgan said i|
