This irrigation system is being con

15,000 acres of land. This will cnaDle Es

Return of One of the Commanders of a
Chinese War Ship
NEW YORK. May I.—Commander P.
M. McGiffen, who had command of the
Chinese ironclad Chin Yuen at the battle
of Yalu, arrived here from Liverpool and
is stopping at the Astor House. The
commander received a number of wounds
in the light, and is still somewhat deaf
He has a tattered uniform of the Chinese
navy which he wore on the Chin Yuen
during tho naval battle. He says il was
a stubborn fight, and was lost to tbe Chi
nese chiefly because they had no shells to
use except iron ones. The Japanese
wero well supplied with shells, which
did great execution. The Chinese shot
passed through tbe enemy's ships with
out doing any great damage. The com
mander Believes the Chinese seamen arc
brave and skillful, and would make good
lighters if they could only trust their
leaders. Tbo Chinese gunners fired as
true as the Japanese, but did not do so
much damage on account of the quality
of the shot.
The commander had some very narrow
escapes during the Yalu battle. At one
time he was directly in front of the
mouth of a twelve-inch gun on his ship
as the gunner was swinging it into place
to lire, lie closed bis eyes and waited for
certain death, lie opened them in a few
seconds ami rolled off tbe superstructure
just before tbe gun went oft. The com
mander carries two wounds in his left
thigh and another over his abdomen from
fragments of shell. Commodore l/in was
supposed to be in command, but was
down in his room praying to tho gods to
preserve him. The commander will goto
his homo at Washington. Pa.j in v few
days. He did not come by the Pacific, as
the Japanese had a reward of (6000 stan
ding for him, dead or alive. McGiffen
has been in the Chinese naval service for
twelve years. He founded the naval in
stitute at Wei-Hai-Woi, ami did consider
able surveying in Corea.

Cpe ling at Chicago

New Facts Regarding; the Reputed Wheat
NEW YORK, May I.—Ship brokers at
this port seem rather skeptical concern
ing the report that tlie Pair wheat will be
removed to Liverpool direct by sea. It is
declared that the charter of iron hulls to
an aggregate of 58,000 tons is simply for
tbe transaction of regular business.
Though the rate lias risen to 81 shillings
for cargoes to Liverpool from San Fran
cisco, it will have liltlo effect on New
York shipping, as the rates offered will
by no means tempt owners to send their
vessels around the Horn, it is said by
some of tliu brokers that no vessels will
leave here in ballast for San Francisco
until the rate is at least 45 shillings, or
Those Fishery Laws Again
OTTAWA, Out., May I.—John t'osti
gan, minister of marine and fisheries, lias

eries department that the two American
boats which wero seized in Lake Erie for
poaching in Canadian fisheries be sur
rendered to the nearest Canadian customs
Rioting Workingmcn
BTJDA PESTH, May I.—Soon after
midnight 800 workmen marc ied through
the leading sttects until dispersed by tne
police, who made several arrests. A re
port has reached here from Miskoliez that
a serious conflict has taken place between
the police and a thousand workmen cele
brating May day.
And the Skies Opened
WINONA, Minn.. May I.—There was a
cloudburst here this afternoon. Within
ten minutes. I.6oinches of rain fed, Hood
ing the streets beyond all precedent.
Numerous buildings were struck by light
ning, but no material damage is reported.
The Earth Trembled
UKIAH, May I.—A severe shock of
earthquake occurred at 3 o'clock this aft
ernoon and lusted for some seconds.
Telegrams for the following persons are
at the Western Union Telegraph com
pany's ottice in this city: Mrs. J. 0.
Fraser, V. Montgomery, Mrs. A. C. Mills,
Charles N. Brickenstein, J. B. Kerr, J.
W. Henderson.
The barracks built for European soldiers
are generally far better than the houses
of tiie peasant)y. Chelsea barracks, in
England, cost £215 per man.
By the Farmers and Merchants Bank ;
At a special meeting of the board of j
directors of the Farmers and Merchants
bank a most considerate and creditablo (
action was adopted.
On motion of President Hellman the j
sum of $5000 was voted to tho widow and |
family of John \V. Milner, the hit" cashier
of the bank, in recognition of bis services
to that institution during his twenty-two
years' service. The money was placed
with Mr. Hellman, tbe president of the !
bank, as trustee, to be invested by hijn ;
as he spes lit.
The feelings of tho management of the
bank were well expressed in the follow- t
ing resolutions which were adopted:
John Milner died at 11:4."> o'clock p.m., j
• April 27, 1805, For more than a score of .
years h» has held high official position?
In the Farmers and Merchants bank of J
Los Angeles, Cal. To all trusts he has
been true, "true as the dial to the sun." j
In every department of life John Milner !
has been a nappy exemplification of the \
possibilities of honesty, integrity, intelli
genoe and industry, when combined.
We, the directors of the Farmers and
Merchants bank do unanimously declare ;
our grievous sorrow at his untimely tak- ;
ing off, and desire to express unreservedly I
our sincere sympathy for the loved ones
in their bereavement.
It is ordered that this tribute to the
memory of our beloved cashier bo spread
upon the minutes of this hoard, ami that
a copy of these resolutions be forwarded
to his family.
