NO. 75 THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC Loses a Case Against the Government 1 DOMAIN GONE FOR El Seven Hundred Thousand Acres Was the Stake JUDGE ROSS SUSTAINED The Lands in Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino Counties Doubtless the Most Important Case Tried on tbe Coast The United States Court o! Appeals the laelstrom Down Which Disappeared a Princely Realty Holding—A Concise and Accurate History of the Case A dispatch to The Herald, sent from San Francisco, was received last night which read: "In the suit of tbe United States gov ernment against the Southern Pacific company to obtain possession of 700,000 acres of land in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, decision against the railroad was made today by tbe United States cir cuit court of appeals. The decision affirms United States Judge Ross' opin ion." Ono of the land grant cases of the gov ernment against the Southern Pacific Railroad company, entitled, Southern Pacitio Railroad company, appellant, vs. United Slates, as seen oy the above, was decided yesterday at San Francisco by the United States circuit court of appeals for the Ninth circuit in favor of the gov ernment, and affirming the decree of Judge Ross, who heard the case here. This case involves some 700,000 acres of land in Los Angeles, Ventura and San JSernardino counties, and is doubtless the most important case ever tried on the Pacific coast, both from the value of tho property as well as the importance of tho questions involved. The land is within the thirty in :1c limit of the now forfeited grant of the Atlantic nnd Pacific railroad, made by the act or congress of 1806. The Atlantic and Pacific railroad having definitely located its ronta from the Missouri river to the Pai ilic ocean at Ventura, Cal., tbe grant of lands along the line attached in that company and so remained until 1886, wdien tbe grant was forfeited and re sumed by the government and never be came a part of the grant of the Southern Pacific Railroad company, as claimed by that company. Hut the Southern Paciiic Railroad company contended that the Atlantic and Paciiic Railroad company never properly surveyed its line of route, and that therefore its location was fraud ulent, and that the grant never took effect. The circuit court of appeals decides all the points against the southern Paciiic Railroad company and holds: First—That the law did not require tho Atlantic and Paciiic Railroad company, in designating its line of route, to make any map snowing any survey upon the ground nnd that the maps of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad company were prop erly made, and that the land grant at tached in that company und so remained, held by it until forfeited in 1886. Second —That even if the map bad bfen fraudulent it was no concern of the Souiliern Pacific Railroad company, and tnat that company had no rip lit to com plain as to the acts of tho Atlantic and Pacific company, and that that was a matter which alone concerned the gov ernment. Third —To at it was not the intention of congress to grant those, lands to the Southern Paciiic Railroad company, and that they had not done so. The decision is a crushing defeat for tne Southern Pacific Railroad company and in harmony with the decision of the United States supreme court several years ago in a previous case of the government against the Southern Pacific Kailroau company. Mr. Joseph H. Case represented the United States as special counsel in the circuit court of appeals In this ca-e, as well as in other government litigation with the railroads. The Southern Paciiic was represented hy eminent counsel from New York, Washington and San Fran cisco, and included Judge Payson. who for many years was chairman ol the con gressional committee on Paciiic lands; also William F. Herrin, general solicitor of the Southern Paeitic Kailroad com pany, and James C. Carter of New York city, who was counsel for the government in tiie Bering sea arbitration, held at Paris and the leader of the New York bar. The circuit court of appeals for the Ninth circuit in the argument and decis ion of this case was composed of Judges Gilbert, Bellinger and Knowles.

RESIGNATION OF ROSEBERY England's Prime Minister Hands It to tbe Queen TALE OF THE TUMULT Salisbury Will Form a Conservative Ministry Tall of the Cabinet Causes Considerable Com ment In England and This Country. Some Opinion* Associated Press Special Wire. LONDON, June 24.—There were few present in the house of lords when Pre mier Lord Rosebery roae at 3:45 this afternoon to announce the resignation o! the cabinet. The prince of Wales, duke of York and duke of Cambridge sat on a cross bench. The marquis of Salisbury was absent at Windsor. The galleries were crowded with peers and meinbors of the house of commons. Lord Rosebery said: "I desire to make a very brief state ment which the house lias undoubtedly anticipated. After the voto in tho house of commons Friday, which was practic ally a vote of censure of the secretary of war on the question of national defense, immediately after there had been laid be fore tho house a great scheme for m ilitary organization, the government felt it their duty to place their resignations in the hands of the queen. Their resignations wer*» accepted and the government will In:Id otlice till their successors ure ap pointed." The carl of Cranbrook, Con servative, said the marquis of Salisbury had desired him to say he wished the house to adjourn until tomorrow. Lord Rosebery remarked there was only one very important bill, the seal fisheries, which would be proceeded with, and tie expressed tho hope it would pass all its stages tomorrow. Tne seal lisheries bill then passed the first reading. In the Commons In tha commons Speaker William Gully took the chair at 3 p.m. and soon afterward Secretary of State for War Campbell-Rannerman entered <tmfd pro longed Liberal cheers. At B:3othe chan cellor of the exchequer, Sir Willum Ver non Harcourt, entered the house and the Liberals rose in a body and cheered him to the echo. The supporters of Chamber lain made a simitar demonstration when the Unionist leader entered. Sir William Vernon Harcourt said: "It is my dul#- to mako the announcement to the houso'that the division of Friday was a vote of censure of the secretary of" w<*r. Than whom never a more able, respected or popular minister held otlice. The gov ernment, of course, associated themselves with their colleague and feeling they wero unable to pass the votes for supply the goverment resigned and the resigna tion wa« accepted. Under ordinary cir cumstances it would have been incumbent to move adjournment, but the seal fisher ies bill must be passed before July, and when it has passed its third reading the government will move an adjournment of the hcuse. 1 ' The chancellor of the exchequer then acknowledged the consideration shown to tho government by its opponents. Tears were in the eyes of Sir William when ho uttered the last words. Mr. Balfour crit icized the conduct of the government, i He said he thought a constitutional man ner of proceeding would have been to ad vise the queen to dissolve parliament, in stead of throwing the burden of continu ing the government on the opposition. At 3:22 the house went into committee on the seal lisheries bill. The New Premier Tho marquis of Salisbury conferred this morning with Right lion. J. A. Ballour, Conservative leader in the house of com mons, ihe duke of Devonshire, Unionist leader in tiie house of lords, and with Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, Union leader in the house of commons, and procuded to Windsor at 1:30 p. m., in re ply to a summons of the queen, following the resignation of the Rosebery ministry. The beßt informed agree in the belief that Lord Salisbury will accept the task of forming a cabinet, and the new min istry is to be com posed of represenja tives of both sections of the Unionist party, although the dissolution of parlia ment cannot lie long dolayed. It may not be necessary to till all the (.laces in the ministry, as the Times intimates this morning, before taking stops for an im mediate appeal to tbe country. Then, according to the programme, the mar quis of Salisbury would become premier and president of the council of minister, nnd tbe duke cf Devonshire secretary of state for foreign affairs. Mr. Balfour la said to be slated for the I ofliee of first loTd of the treasury, and Chamberlain will become secretary of stato for war. Right Hun.

The princi pal members of tho Salisbury, cabinet must be re-elected immediately, and dis solution ol parliament is expected within a fortnight. Tbe marquis of Londonder ry, Conservative, is expected to be vice roy of Ireland. In the bouse of com mons today there was a most animated scene, and outside of the hcuse of lords parliament large crowds gathered. AN EXPLANATION It Is Claimed flcOlauflln & Co.

TO TAKE THE ISLANDS Buccaneers Banding Together ia San Francisco The Scheme Is Said to De a Raid on Hawaii in the Interest ol the Queen SAN FRANCISCO. June 24.—A morn ing paper says attempts are being mude to organize filibustering expeditions in the city to go to Honolulu and oveitlnow tho government. Exiles arc said to bo the prime movers in the plot. Captain F. Lupp of this city is said to have been approached by a man named Stewart recently and asked if he would go to the islands ns master of a schooner carrying armed men and a cargo of guns, ammu nition and dynamite bombs. The terms offered Captain l.upp were $5000 down and 510,000 in case he should succeed in the dangerous work required of him. Ho was also told to tiud a tit vessel and report upon its lowest casli price. That is the story Lupp has told. As tne story goes. Stewart said that friends of tho exile colony in this city had put up a big sum of money tor the filibustering scheme and that an agent hail bought supplies of War material in the east. These purchases, unlike those Which went to Hawaii to be. used in last year's' revolt, were of first-class arms and ammunition. The other time money hail been wasted in buying licht carbines and I revolvers which were no match for the Winchesters and Lee magazine rifles of tho government troops. The present supplies, so Stewart said, were of dynnmit!' bombs, long repeating rifles of 45-100 caliher, Colt's army revol vers of tho latest pattern and a battery of Hotuhkiss and Maxim guns, with rounds enough for each piece to turn the Para dise of tiie Pacific into tho Inferno of tbe western hemisphere. This cosily freight had been divided and it was the purpose to send half of it over the Northern Pacific i to Seattle and the other hall to San Diego, j which latter port a second expedition was to leave in a sohooner to he commanded by a man named McFarland. When Charles T. Wilder, the consul general o. Hawaii, was asked what he knew of tbe matter, he said he did not wisli to affirm or deny anything. SAFE IN THE CHAPARRAL tftajtt Robber Brady Has a Hiding Place The Outlaw Is In an Impenetrable Forest, and Although Surrounded Is Quite Safe REDDING, Cal., Juno 24. — Ex-Consta ble Scoring has returned from the pur suit of Brady. Ho says he never saw such a busby country, so thick a rabbit could hardly get through. Anyone in hiding is perfectly safe. Occasionally they find his tracks leading to some fruit orchard near hy, but Brady has not been seen by anyone since taicing his dinner at the Johns house. Guards have been placed at all houses where he is liable to appear for food, which explains why he keeps hid. So bring interviewed a girl at the Johns house who fed Brady and who pretended to be a man uuliter* She says that Brady, on asking for something to eat. was ottered bread and milk. He would not sit down at the table, but ate on the porsh Standing, and kept his hat on. Under sheriff Fader repoita that among those searching for Brady was a man iv a light wagon, a stranger. Wherever they would HO they would find this fellow witli his wagon. Finally their suspicions were aroused and they searched the wagon to find it contained canned goods, and such provisions as a m«n in Brady's position would require* They placed the fellow unaer arrest. This incident seems to explain why it is that Brady has been so well provided for. for ho must have friends to assist him. Brady, or some of his friends, nt ,'i o'clock'this morning burned a barn filled with bay that belonged to George Martin, tho officer who shot Brady's eye out last Wednesday, it is reported that Brady has eluded army of officers who are hunting nim in the brush eight miles northwest of here, and has come in this direction.

DELEGATES ARE ON DECK The Kentucky Convention Will Open Today EVERYBODY HAS AN AXE Some of Them Have Silver, Others Golden Edges Principal Fight Will Be lade on the Chair manship, as Great Results Are Ex pected From Committee. Associated Press Special Wire. LOUISVILLK, June 24.—The Demo cratic state convention tomorrow will be among the hottest contests in the history of the commonwealth. AH the delegates aro iiere today lor the preliminary skir mish in the district meetings. Polling, by nil the Louisville papers, shows the gold delegates in tlio majority. The sil ver men elalm the majority of delegates. The lines are drawn on endorsement cf the administration.with Carlisle's iriends leading fur the administration and Black burn's friends against its financial policy. General Caasius M. Ciay is the adminis tration candidate for governor, nnd Gen eral P. \V. Hardin the anti-administration candidate. The silver men will try to force nominations before adoption of the platform. The gold men are bitterly op posed to this order ot business, as they claim Hardin is stronger than the free silverites. I be first test of strength will come tomorrow on the selection of tem porary chairman, who has the appoint ment of two members at large on all tbe committees. It is estimated tne gold men will have six and the silver men five on the committee on resolutions from tho dis tricts, but if the silver men secure the temporary organization, the platform I makers will stand seven to six. Tins is the tight being made today. The Post, which Bt.'onghly supports tho administration's financial policy, today has a poll of delegates, showing 435 for Hardin, :178 for Clay, 85 doubtful. The Post says: "There are 78 delegates; 40 necessary for a choice, and the polling in dicates Hardin only lacks five votes. The Hardin men say 'they have five votes. This is not by any means certain. Gen eral C. Gordon Williams was defeated sixteen years ago by James B, McCreary when within live votes of a nomination.' En-Governor Buckner publishes a curd today saying he would not accept the nomination for governor. Buckner is a candidate for senator on the sound money platform, and will have nothing else. Hon. James 11. McCreary, chairman of the house committee on foreign affairs, is in this city to attend the Democatic state convention, and is running against Senator Blackburn for chairman of the committee on resolutions. McCreary was a number oi tbe international monetary conference which met at Brussels in 1882. When seen today by a representative of the Associated Press, Mr.McCreary stated that his experience with the F.nglish members of that conference gives him as jura.ioe that the advent of the Salisbury ministry will te in the interest of bimet allism, as Lord Salisbury, Balfour nnd others aro more favorable than Rosebery and his associates were for such a confer ence. Mr. McCreary said he was more I hopeful now lhan before of such interna tional action as would settle the ratio be tween the two metals. He not only re gaided Lord Salisbury as friendly to an international agreement, but also a very gre.it statesman, who will be more liberal in his geneial policy than Rosenery. There were active friends in England of bimetallism, and Lord Salisbury would recognize tnem. Mr. McCreary referred to Sir William Houldwortb, Balfour, Chapin and others, who are friendly to bimetallism and who are close to Salis bury. While England bad maintained a gold standard since 18111, Mr. McCreary has no doubt that bimetallism bad many friends nmu.ig the mannfacturers, agri culturists and business men ill England, and that this sentiment was growing so that the ministry would be sustained in supporting an International agreement. Mr. McCreary thought such an agteenicnt might be secured without the participa tion of England,-but when an interna- | lional monetary conference assembles in t Europe, it would be very encournging to j I have fhe support of tho leading stales- | • men in the English ministry. 'I he house j lof commons had already adopted a reso- j | lotion that wns regarded as favorable for | an International conference. Germany, j France and the United States had taken action for such a conference, and il Eng- ; land will now co-operate the metallic problem can be solved, Mr. McCreary regarded Salisbury as bet ter equipped etery way than Rosebery for a more liberal and more enlitrhtened policy .which would extend to Nicaragua, Venezuela and other American countries in which tiie I'nited States is interested. He thought England was paying very lit tle attention to Hawaii, and that the United States was paying entirely 100 much attention to these little Islands. Mr. McCreary said he was not only op posed to tho annexation of Hawaii, but also opposed to any subsidy for a cable from San Francisco to Honolulu. There were fourteen submarine telegraphic lines in operation, and all had been built by private capital. If any such enter prises were needed, tlio capital could bo found for them. Tonight the "sound money" delegates chose ex-Congressmon W. J. St no as j their oandldate for temporary chairman, i They say Judge Beckner is Blackburne's ! man They will make a test on the vote between Beckner and Stone, tho latter i being popular with some ot the silverites ] and Hardin men. Meantime the conser- i vatives want both Beckner and Slone to i promise to appoint one silver and one gold man as members at large of tbe com- | mittee on resolutions, and in fact to di- j vide equally the members at large of alt ! tbe com in ittees. Senator Blackburn, who lias more at stake at this convention than any of the | state candidates, and more even than j Secretory Carlisle, was disposed to con- 1 cede to the conservative plan of an equal I division of the members at large on each I of the oommitt es. but the radical silver pren oppose it, and a meeting of the sil- I ver men was called Tor 11 o'clock tonight. The silver men may be in conference all nleht preparatory 10 ibe light winch be gins in the congressional district meet ings iv the motning. Tonight the contest between the ad ministration and anti-administration I delegates has been more bitter than ever. The fighting is for temporary organiza tion, w:th a view to securing the cball man, two members at large of tbe com mittee, on resolutions and controlling the rules and order of business so that omi nationa shall bo made before tbe platform is adopted.

WAY TO WEDDED "BLISS" Young Girls Think That It Is Through the Stage A Theatrical Manager in San Francisco Overwhelmed With Applications from nisses for en Engagement SAN FRANCISCO June 24—Since Loret ta Addis left the variety stage to cast her fortune with Lori Sholto Douglas, and Genevieve Nannary forsook the footlights to become the wife of Irving Blinn, a millionaire's son, local theatrical man agers aie overwhelmed with applications from young women who desire to go on the stage. The applicants represent all grades of society, but the greater number are said to bo girls of excellent families and daughters of society people. "I never saw so many stage-struck girls in my life as there are right bore in San Francisco," said S. H. Friedlander, one of tho managers of the Columbia theater, "I attribute it all to tbe success of Califor nia actress, professionally and matrimoni ally. There is no aoubt the marriages of Loretta Addis and Genevieve Nan nary have made a gieat impression on the young Indies of this community. During the last few weeks we have had so many applications that I don't know what to do with tnem. Not all the girls who want to adopt the stage have matrimonial aspirations. There ate many who are really desirous of becoming clever act resses. Of course, you know what it is to be a good actress. It is a pleasant life; a girl is well paid and has attention, ami, taking it altogether, it is an attractive kind of existence. Girls realize this, and I do not bllame them for wanting to en ter tho profession. California girls are singularly adapted to tho stage. They are, as a rule, graceful, vivacious and well developed, and more taking on the stage than eastern girls. If a California girl has any talent whatever she has the pref erence in tho east. A company that vis ited here recently took off thirty San Francisco girls for their ballet. The girls were cruzy fur the stage, and as they were attractive the company was glad to get them.'

CHILBERQ It Is Now Claimed That the Vessel Sprung a Leak W hat One of the Survivors of the 111-Fate* Vessel Says as to the Benevolence of the Company i Associated Press Special Wire. WASHINGTON, Juno 24.-An account of the wreck of tiie steamer Colima has reached Ihe state department from United States'* Consul Eugene Battle at Acapulco, Mexico, dated June fitb. He transmits the statement of Mr. Chilberg. corroborated by three of her passengers and two seamen that the wind and the heavy sea was tho cause of the wreck and probably a leak In the vessel. Twenty-one persons were picked up by the San Juan and ten who went ashore on life rafts wero taken care of by tbe governor of Colima. Two Mexican steamers rendered prompt service. One "bundled and sixty-live persons were lost and thirty-one were saved, and the con sul believes that but little more of the missing will ever be known. Mr. Chilberg of Seattle says that when within about forty miles from port and ten or fifteen miles from shore, there came terrible winds so that no one coul'* stay on deck. He thinks the officera were trying to put the ship about to re turn to port when she wns struck by a heavy swell at a critical time with such force that she capsized and sank in ten minutes, in 150 fathoms of water. Chil berg was washed overboard, caught a life raft with four others and got asnore nfWr bein*; in the water thirty-three hours. He flunks the steamer sprung a leak a* she listed more and more before the acci dent and never seemed to recover herself. One of the rafts had eignt men on it, but the sea was so rough that tha \ rafts made three complete revolutions, losing a man each time, leaving live who made shore. The people ashore received them with the greatest kindness, giving them food, water and the best accommodations in their humble abodes. At Colima the governor provided them with food and clothing and gave them transportation to Manzanillo. Consul Rattle suggests that the state department recognize in some way the good ottiees tendered by Governor Santa Cruz in behalf of the distressed American citizens.
