San Francisco to Be the Home
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
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.
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

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.

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
Naxt Move for tha Govsrnraant to Taka
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.

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

and was en route home with $1000 iv his
pocket when Byers enticed him ofT

scaffold Byars protested his inno

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

neck being broken. He leaves a family.

StroDg Sentiment Against

mony — Tha Road
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

do not believe in the passage of a gen

that will not be special legislation, we
would suggest tbe passage of a measure

A large audience filled the assembly
chamber to listen to addresses by
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

people. Funding and bonding schemes
are all intended to crush tho people in

A Short Horning Smlon-Xtv Bills
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

Washington, Feb. 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
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.
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
