HIGHLAND PARK IS OF US
The District Yesterday Joined
the City
CARRIED BY NINE MAJORITY
.he Vote Was Even Lighter Than on
Thursday
Vhit the New District Will (lain by the
Move—A Problem for the Po
lice Commission
When the proposition for a greater Los
Angeles first began to assume definite
character, and it looKed as if the city
would call a special election for the pur
pose, some of those interested in the pro
ject so fit? as it pertained to Highland
Talk went before the executive committee
of tbe annexation association of tbe four
south and western districts, which on
Thursday refused to become a part of tho
city, and proposed that both of the then
pending elections be held upon one and
tbe same day. The offer made included,
if acoepted, a proposition to pay to the
south and western associations any and
all of the expenses which had been by
the latter committee incurred up to that
time. The offer was flatly refused. Yes
terday the people of Highland Park voted
to annex by a majority of nine votes. On
Thursday the people of Vernon, Pico
Heights, Rosedale and University refused
annexation by eighteen votes. Had the
proposition of tbe Highland people Deen
accepted by the southwestern districts,
Los Angeles would today be just as large
and no larger than was the city yester
day. As it is, a step bas been taken in
the direction of tbe greater city. It is a
little bit of a step, to be sure, but it Is a
step In the right direction,just tho same.
The election yesterday was a very quiet
affair, even more quiet than was the ore
on Thursday. Contrary to general ex
pectation, yesterday's election carried,
although tbe total vote cast, especially
inside the city, was not more than 2 per
cent ot the entire total vote in the city.
Arroyo Seco Park is now a part of tbo
city and wiil have to pay a saloon license
of $50 a month, if a license ia granted
the place at all. This will be one of tbe
new problems which the police commis
sioners will havo to face.
The election board In the annexed dis
trict kept out lots of votes yesterday, per
mitting only those whose names are in
the great register to cast their ballots.
Tbe new district will at once require
police and lire protection. For the former
purpose a mounted officer will probably
be furnished to do night duty. What tho
council will do for the new territory in
the way of lire protection is a conun
drum, as the city treasury is hardly in
lliane for very much of a splurge in that
direction.
The new district 13 to be a part of the
domains of Councilman George Htockwell.
All of it is located in the First ward.
The oity council will canvas the votes
of yesterday's election Tuesday The re
turns will then be certified to by the city
clerk and deposited with the secretary of
state, after which Highland Park will
have been officially wiped off the map.
Yesterday's election gives to the peo
ple of the annexed district, besides po
lice and fire protection, tbe benefit of
sending their children to the high school,
the privileges of the public library and
electrically lighted streets

LOUIS STERN'S CASE
Bavaria Declines to Extend the Clemency
Asked by Ambassador Runyon
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4,-News bas
reached Washington unofficially confirm
ing the cable reports that the Prince of
Havana has declined to extend clemency
to Lotus Stern of New York, as was re
quested by our ambassador, Mr. Runyon.
The prince is the last resort in such a
case, within the limits of Bavaria, where
Mr. Stern was tied, and he most either
serve out his sentence of two weens im
prisonment and fine of riOO marks or for
feit his bail, which has been lixed in the
excessive sum of $20,000. At first Mr.
Stern lodged an appeal, but soon witn
drew this in order to make an application
for modification of the sentence, asking
that the imprisonment be changed to a
fine. This lieinc refused, it is understood,
that the appeal cannot be renewed. The
affair lias left a bad impression here,
for it is believed fiat the Germans have
seized upon a trilling offense to treat a
prominent American citizen oppres
sively.

Captain White at San Francisco to the
effect that the Bering sea patrol had al
lowed the use of arms by the British seal
ers and had been more strict with the
Americans.
"I heard some shooting, and one al
ways does," said Captain Cantillion,
"but sometimes, when one Is I" clear
weather, another may not be and cannon
shots for signals may be mistanen for
shotguns.
"The cutters wero most vigilant, and
if any slight favor was shown to tho Brit
ish It is not the fault of the cutters, but
of their superiors, for they have obeyed
.heir orders to the letter. The cutters
often even cruised with short coal and in
the teeth of gales, I was boarded ten
times and by every cutter. They searched
the boat thoroughly and examined every
akin for shot marks. '

But He Could Not Bluff Consul
Hickson
ONE LONELY FIGHTING MAN
Sent With the Ku Cheng Commission of
Inquiry
Lieutenant Evans of the Cruiser Detroit As
sists at the Inquiry Into the Ku
Cheng nassacre
Associated Press Sneelal Wire
LONDON, Oct. 4.—A letter to the Pall
Mall Gazette from Ku Cheng, published
todoy dilates upon the fact that it is a
strange thing that the only lighting man
sent to Ku Cheng with the commission
appointed to inquiio into tho massacres
of missionaries was Lieut. Waldo Evans
of the United States cruiser Detroit, in
spite of the fact that two British gun
boats were lying at Foo Chow. The cor
respondent of the Gazette odds that when
the party arrived at Ku Cheng tbe man
darin in command there refused to allow
the members of Ihe comrnissionto attend
the trial of the accused Vegetarians,
whereupon Mr. Hickson, tlio United
States consul at Foo Chow, who was the
most energetic member of the commis
sion, peremptorily demanded, in tbe
most vigorous language, the right of be
ing present at tho trials. He said he did
not care how great a personage the
darin was, he would stir up all the pow
ers unless lie was admitted, and gave the
mandarin four nours in which to make
no his mind.
Oriental Complications
NEW YORK, Oct. 4.—A special to the
Herald from London says:
With the reported cession of
thur to Russia, which, however.has since
been semi-officially denied from St. Pe
tersburg, tho Eastern question has sud
denly come to the front again. Minister
Kato, the Japanese representative al the
court of St. James, in an interview said:
"There need be no mystery as to our de
lay in evacuating the Liao Tung penin
sula. The Japanese are simply waitng for
the lirst payment stipulated by the treaty
of Shimoi.seki. When these payments
are made the Japanese troops will be
withdrawn. I do not think Russia will
press for evacuation only. Rathor I
should say she will urge China to pay the
necessary portion of the indemnity.
"Japan was forced to yield Port Arthur
on Ihe plea that her occupation of it
would harm the eastern trade. There
fore, I cannot see how Russia could take
possession of the place and avoid the ap
plication of the same argument to her
own pretensions."
"If this cession to Russia were con
firmed," was asked," what, rould be the
Japftusoo outlook in Corea?"
"Very threatening," was bis excellen
cy's reply, "with Russian troops at
Viadivostock on the one band and Port
Arthur on the other, but if this would be
threatening to Japan it would, in my
opinion, be even more so to China.''
ENGLAND WANTS TRINIDAD
Where She Wishes to Establish a
Cable Station
France, England and Italy Have Determined
Upon Collective Action to Satisfy
Their Claims on Brazil
BUENOS AYRES, Oot. 4 A dis
patch to El Diaro says that England,
Prance and Italy hove decided upon col
lective uction with a view to securing
satisfaction of their respective claims
upon Brazil.
The claims of France gr6w out of the
disputed jurisdiction of the territory of
Ainapa, lying between Brazil and French
GuUna. Its claims nre for reparat on on
nccount of damages suffered by Italian
ships during tne revolution.
The British minister withdrew fiom
Rio last summer, leaving the legation
there in charge of an attache to mark the
strained relations between the countries.
England's claims probably relate to the
island of Trinidad, which she seeks to
obtain as a cable station.
DAQOETT comes back
He Doesn't Owe rieguire Anything and Is
Not Frightened a Bit
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4.—John H.
Daggett, the superintendent of the mint,
says in relation to the charges brought
against him by Congressman Maguire:
"Well, as I do not know specifically
what they are, I connot speak of them at
present, except to say that they are base
less and without foundation. My posi
tion is impregnable. Ido not mean by
that I have a 'pull' nt Washington.
What I mean is that lam right. So far
as my interesting myjelf in politics, of
course I am. If they thought I was go
ing to keep out of politics they should
nu> have put me here. I have a right to
assist in maintaining the supremacy of
the Democratic party. I cannot say now
whether or not any of the employees in
the mint have been furnisning Maguire
with information looking to my over
thiow.
"Maguire's objection to me is simply a
question ot petronagc. He was friendly
enough in April, but is not now. Tbe
reason you will have to guess until I
know just what his charges are. In fact,
patronage is what caused all the howl to
go up. Harbor Commissioner Colnon is
after me because I aid not put a lady in
the mint for bim. I told him tbat X had
given tbe governor one appointment and
Senator Dangiord another, and I thought
that was about all San Joaquin was en
titled to. As a matter of fact, I think
Coluon ought to give me some of his
patronage. I secured Budd his nomi
nation, and in that way Colnon got his
appointment. He aid nothing toward
making me superintendent of the mint."

ONLY A SHAM
The rionarch Doesn't Believe that Buckley
and Kalney Fell Out
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4.—ln review
ing the recent election of W. A. Watkins
as chairman of tho general Democratic
committee in tbis city, tne Examiner
says:
"It is not generally believed that Buck
ley and Raincy have had a falling out.
It seems to be the impression that tho
two wily workers of men have come to
an agreeement to have a sham battle.
They will pretend to be very bitter
against each other, simply for the pur
pose of breaking the great opposition that
would naturally be raised up against
them if lhey tried to control tho city to
gether as they have done in the past. It
is believcti to be an attempt on their part
to force the people into thinking that
divided they can both be beaten.

Associated Tress Special Wire;
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4.-W. R. Vlt»,
ex-president of the old California club,
believes that if tne CorDett-Fitzsimmons
fight were brought off here in California
it would mean over $1,000,000 profit to
the state.
"Dog" White, one of San Francisco's
prominent sporting men, had quite a
talk with Mr. Vice today about raising
a purse for tbe light to come to Califor
nia. The sporting men interested in
it are very secret a boot their plans just
at present, and it will be some days be
foro anythng definite is known.
The talK has reached the Olympic club.
Manager W. J. Kennedy saia today that
he would give James J. Corbett and
Robert Fitzsimmons a chance to box a
limited engagement before the Olympic
clwo. The Australia,-!, however, would
object to this, as Corbett is too popular
at the Post-street institution.
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Oct. 4.—The
gentlemen who secured the concession
from the state of Tauapas, to have a prize
tight and hull fighting tournament in
N'ueva Laredo, hove sent a Mexican aen
tleman, who is related to President Diaz,
to the capital to secure immunity from
interference. Dan Stuart has agreed to
wait three days jntil this gentleman can
secure an audience with the president.
NEW ORLEANS. Oct. 4.—The opinion
was expressed tonight by certain sport
ing men that Corbett is building up a
foundation to get out of nis fight it pos
sible. It was noticed that every news
paper man who has interviewed Corbett
tallied only on one subject, and that was
on tbe many strings that wero attached
to the Fitzsimmons stake. In every con
versation the pugilist indulged this sub
ject would he prominently brought for
ward by him. When it is taken into con
sideration tnat tbe attacbiuents against
Fitzsimmons' money in Dwyer's hands
were issued more than a month ago and
Corbett refrained from saying anything
about it at that time, the fact gives rise
to the suspicion that the conqueror of
John L. Sullivan has kept this as his
last card.
Coroett said today that Fitzsimmons
would have to put up $10,000 in the stake
holders' hands without an attachment
ticii to it, or ho would not light. He
claims that Fitzsimmons oaly has $2000
of the side bet up,the rest being attached.
CORPUS OHRISTI, T»x„ Oct. 4.—
Fitzsimmons goes right along with b
training notwithstanding the legislature's
action at Austin. He says he has an
offer from responsible parties to pull off
the fight should the Florida Athletic club
fail to do so. He says be is determined
to give Corbett no possible opportunity
to escape him and that tho big dude wiil
either have to fight or leave tbecountry,
branded as a coward who is afraid "to
meet a man who Is much smaller than
himself.
Todny Dan Stuart wired Martin Julian
to come to Dallas at once. It is impos
sible to learn whether Julian will go or
what is the nature of the business.
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 4.-Tbe bouse of
bishops of the Episcopal triennial con

from a private source received in the
city tonight says that the Choctaw tribo
in the Indian Territory intend to adopt
Corbett as a member of their tribe, that
the tight may be brought off in their
nation. When asked wtiat lie would do
under the circumstances, Corbett said he
would accept the honor. He further said
that he would paint his face red, wear
an eagle feather in his hair and do any
thing to make himself look like an In
dian, just so he could get a chance at
Fitzsimmons. Corbett and party leave
in the morning for San Antonio.

Last mgnt she was out drinking with
a man named Deb Wright, an employee
on a river steamer. He is missing and
it is supposed that he was drowned also.
The liusnnnd of Mrs. Laville expresses

also that she had several miliars in her
purse, but the body contained neither
purse nor mousy.
She and Wright were seen in a saloon
together shortly before midnight, and
before they left that place Mrs. Laville
said she was going down to tbe steamer

her Wright fell overboard and was
drjwned with her. Wright's life was in
sured for $11100 in favor of his children.

has accepted money from friends of a
prisoner in consideration of his influence
to be used in obtaining a pardon. Dr.
Mansfield admits that he received $. r >o
from two Greeks, whose names he does
not remember. He says the money was
paid him to be used in the purchase of
delicacies for a Greek convict who is
dying of consumption. He gave no re
ceipt for tbe money and deposited it in a
bank In his own name. The friends of
the convict, who is serving a sentence
for manslaughter, are endeaovring to
secure a pardon for him. The doctor
promised to help them, he says, but has
not yet done anything.
Dr. Mansfield admitted that the trans
action looked crooked, but insisted that
he had not taken the money for purposes
other than to purchase delicacies for the
prisoner. In the presence of an Ex
aminer representative today he paid $50
to Warden Hale, which was credited to
the prisoner's account. Tho convict,
whose name is Dcnnguili, says he has
been provided with nothing except from
tho prison supplies. Warden Hale did
not care to express an opinion upon the
conduct of Dr. Mansfield until lie had
made a personal investigation.

tring of the A. P. A. or anti-Ureennalge
forces, who occupied the two parlors.
Notices were conspicuously displayed
about the corridors of the hotel, an
nouncing the headquarter! of the anti-
Grcenhalge forces and many visitors

PRICE FIVE CENTS
SECRETARY OLNEY IS DUMB
Regarding the Question of ths
Venezuelan Boundary
ARBITRATION IS PROBABLE
No Step Has Been Taken Since Qre<>
am's Death
It Is Not Regarded as Probable or Even
Possible That Any Ultimatum
Has Been (liven
Associated Fress Special Wire.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. — Secretary
Olney positively refused to say anything
touching any correspondence be has had,
or intends to have, relative to the settle
ment ol the Venezuelan boundary dis
pute, so it cannot bo positively ascer
tained whether he bas taken any steps
recently to induce Great Britain to sub
mit the matter to arbitration. It can be
stated, however, that since Secretary
Gresham's death and up to a very recent
date, the department had not made a
single move in that direction. But in
asmuch as congress, by resolution, bas
directed tne executive to nse its best
efforts to bring tbe dispute to arbitration,
it is very probable that, hating in mind
the near approach of the assembling ot
congress, Sccrotary Olney has been giv
ing the subject the attention it demands,
and is formulating his views to bo com
municated to Ambassador Bayard upon
the return of tho latter from his vacation
In Scotland. Moreover, as the preceding
letters of the late Secretary Oreshara on
this subject appear to have failed to sj
cure action by the British government,
whose only response was a reiteration of
their willingness to arbitrate the title to
the lands,included witbin supplementary
claims found outside of the vast tract
which the Venezuelans have seized from
them. Secretary Olney may feel that -Ihe
time has come to make a more forcible
presentation than tho mere statement
that the United States would welcome a
submission of tho questions to arbitra
tion.
As diplomacy has many steps between
the initiat'on of an incident ami a de
claration of war, it is possible, following
ordinary usage, to set out such a view in
terms while in style forcible, shall be eu
tirely courteous and in no degree ap
proaching an ultimatum, and auch un*
donbtedly will be the nature of Secretary
Olney's letter. This must be done in or
der that some proper return may be
made to congress in December next.* But
further than that the secretary is not
likely to proceed, for as an ultimatum is
really a step toward war, to deliver such
might b» regarded as an infringement of
the constitutional right of congress.

TOPEKA, Kas., Oot. 4.—The Demo
cratic state central committee today de
cided not to call a state convention to
nominate a candidate for chief justice of
the supreme court, the only office to be
