place tho stock of a mining company with ease in London. So the deal was made and burnap was to receivo the first 160,000 received from the saus of stock. BURNAP MAKES A DEED Bnrnan then deedea tbe three-fourths interest in ihe mines to Price and Pinther. Price forwarded the dead to Ihe San Bernardino county recorder to have it placed on record, but he failed to en close tho money with which to pay the recorder's fees, and the deed was return ed to him here. When the deed came back Price hypo thecated it to a Second street liveryman named Moat for $lil.T">. Of tbis troneac tion Pinther claims he bad no knowledge at cbe time it occurred. Mr. Moat placed the deed in tne bands of bis attorney, U. S. House. Mr. liur nap, hearing that his deed was "in soak," looked it up and found it in tbe possession of House. He became con vinred that be was being fraudulently dealt with. So he made a tender of $16.75 for tbe deed. It being tbe amount tor which it was hypothecated, the ten der was accepted and Mr. Burnap got bis deed. But Lawyer House was foxy. Before giving up the deed be made a certified copy of it. He really had no right to Bive the deed to Burnup lor the $16.75. There is a state law that prescribes how hypothecatea property shall De disposed of. It must bo advertised and the party who pawned it notified before it can be sold. This law was not complied with and the for the failure the parties aro liable for damages. A REVELATION FOR PINTHER Fintber claims that after Burnap get possession of bis deed be learned about its being "in hoc" for the tirst time. Then he went to House and bought the certi fied copy of him. Then Pinther claims tbat he tendered to liurnap $20 for the original deed. This Burnap denies. He cays, though, that the money was tender ed to his wife. Pinther then had the cortified copy placed on record at San Ber nardino. In the meantime the Pirtner. Pried, Bitmap Consolidated Mining and Mill ing company had filed its articles of in corporation with the county clerk. Tbe oojpitnl Btock was $2,000,000 and the stock holders are: J. C. C. Price, 51.600 shares; Theo. Pinther, 44,200 shares; J. W. Gong, 10,000 shares; D. P. Sioner, 44,200 shares: Joy Burnap. 50,000 shares. In the articles of incorporation it is slated that the purpose for which the corporation is formed is "to buy, sell, lease, mortgage, hypothecate, develop, work, prospect and locate mines." Thus far the principal busines dove has been to hypothecate and to work—people, not mines. About this time tho papers an nounced this transacti.n as a big thing, and in an interview "Dr.* Price claimed tbst;the capital stock had been entirely paid in. As a matter of fact, not a sou xnarkee bad been put up. Tbe stockholders held a meeting to or ganize. Burnap was invited but he de clined to attend. So Pinther war elected president, Price secrstary and Stoner treasurer. A SMALL BORROW MADE. In the meantime Price and his col leagues had to borrow some money. This was difficult. Finally a party was found, though, who was susceptible to tbe smooth Price. It was Miss Josie Sul livan, a seamstress. She loaned the $2, --000,000 syndicate $170 receiving $1500 wortb of stock of the Pacihc Beach Hotel company iof San Diego as collateral se curity. This Price claimed to be worth $600." After awhile Miss Sullivan became con vinced that the stock was worthless. She upbraided "Prof." Stoner who is a phrenologist by trade but wbo is not now working at his trade. The "pro fessor" said tbat the loan was a good one and she made it upon bis recommenda tion. Tbe "professor" assured ber tbat the hotel stock had a cash value. So sbe gave it to Ihe "professor" to sell. Instead of selling it though tbe "pro fessor" turned it over to "Dr." Price. Th c genial doctor was not at a loss wbst to do witb it. He took it down into Or ange cotioty and disposed ot it for a ouuch of forty mustangs. 'Ihete he brought to Los Aigeles. They were broken and sold, but Josie Sullivan never received a dol lar. Sbe would like to see tbe color of ber $170. To the editor of The Herald Pinther and "Prof." Stoner have sent tbe fol lowing statement: PINTHEB AND STONER. "Replying to an article in this morn ing's Hsrald, I wish to make a few cor rections of the statements of one J. Bur nap concerning J C. C. Price and myself. First. J. Burnap came to us repeatedly for tne purpose of selling bis tine-, i In the Sth day of April laat we closed a deal with him, purchasing a tbree-fourths in terest in a group of mines owned by him in the Holcomb valley and received a deed for tbe same. This deed was duly recorded on September 3, 1895, in deed boos 217, page 162, records ol San Ber nardino county. The consideration in tbe deed is uuly receipted for. On the same day of execution of said oeed, J. Burnap, J. C. C. Price and Theodore Pinther entered into a written contract With the following terms in brief: "Pinther and Price were to form a cor poration to develop the mines and sell stock of the same, and when said sales leached the sum of $50,000 tne was lo be turned over to said Burnap. So it appears that not a dollar is now doe Mr. Burnap as an examination of the aforementioned contract will show. The company lias two years' time to fulfill tho above-mentioned terms of the con tract. The corporation was foimed an I articles tiled witn the county clerk and secretary of Mate and J. Burnap juined in tbese articles of corporation, and lias one-fourth of the capital stock, as an ex amination of the articles will show. "The corporation is now negotiating Witli an ninglisii syndicate who" propose to put in all needed capital. The com pany invites tbo closest scrutiny on ihe legitimacy of their methods, and ure ready to show documents to establish Ihe foregoing statement. Though not obliged by the terms of tbe deed and contract, Ihe members of the Pinther, Price com £»ny have made many cash advances io lr. Burnap. The Pintncr ci Price com pany bave bonds on a number of mines in the desert with whicb Mr. Burnap lias no connection. Deeds, bonds, etc., are open for : nspection. The members of said company have invested much lime and money in acquiring their present assets. Mr. J. C. C. Prioe, the secretary of the company,is at present attending the state miner.-' convention in San Francisco, Whole he represents the Los Angeles chamber of commerce." This document is sitrned by Pinther as E resident and "Prof." Stoner as secre iry. A FEW ERRORS. When Pinther and Stoner state that *he deed Burnap gave them ia on file in Take a Whack at the Cracker Jack the New 5-cent Cigar 'm- -' —■• • ■ the recorder's office at San Bernardino tney state an untruth, for the certified copy alone is on tile. As to its legality tbers is a question aud a scrutiny of the methods ot this company has beon made by. -r K » i'V-ruld, reuslting in the facts brought out above. As to tho money paid Burnap, ho says that ne received all told not to exceed $6 or $8, receipt of which be acknowledges. That the mem bers of tha company have invested much time in acuiiring their present aastts there is no doubt* Furthermore. "Dr." J. C. C. Price Is no longer representing the Los Angeles chamber of commerce in tbe Stale Mineis' convention. In an interview witli a Herald repre sentative Pinther said that Price had lold him that he was the son oi a director of the Bank of England, but be had never investigated to find out. "Prof.*' Stoner says that Price never claimed sucb a relationship but did assert that he was a nephew of Sir Thomas Ellerby. The professor further claims that the reason Miss Josie Sullivan got no money from the sale of the forty mustangs was because tho combination lost money on the der.l. Then when Josie howled for security for her $170 they gave her a mortgage on a farm somewhere. Both Price and Pinther have bad a queor experience. I'rice was an agent of the Hermitage Vineyard company of this city. Ho was arrested by them on a charge oi embezzlement. His lawyer got him otf on a technicality. This at torney, when seen by a Herald respre sentattve, state! tnat he was now con vinced that they (meaning Price and Pin tbsr) hadjrichly earned the exposure they are receiving. Frank T. Rimpau.the drug gist, assisted "Dr." Price out of liis trouble, and now regrets th* fact, lor he is out the money he advanced. Piutber served ninety days in the San Bernar dino county jail for writing Judge Otis ol that county a threatening letter during the time the Coxey ar>-jy craze was on. OTHER MISREPRESENTATIONS. "Dr." Price has made representations to parties all over Southern California that a number of leuding capitalists were either interested with him or about to interest themselves in his mining prop ositions. Aa far as these statements have been investigated there is not one word ot truth in them. This exposure is made for the protec tion of the legitimate mining deals that are on and may in the future develop m Southern California. Legitimate en terprises should be fostered and aided. The Herald will see to it that fraud is uncovered wnerever it can be discovered. JACOB NEFF IS PRESIDENT No Controversy Excited by Report on Mining Lands The nincrs Favor the Camlnettl Law an ! See No Objection to Continuing Hydraulic Mining SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. IS.—All of the officers of the California Miners' associ ation for tho coming year were elected today by acclamation at the convention in Pioneer hall, 'lhey are: Jacob H. Neff of Placer county, presi dent; Samuel K. Thornton of San Fran cisco, vice-president; Julian Sonntae of San Francisco, secretary; W. W.Mon tague of San Francisco, treasurer. Neff. who has been president ever since the Miners' association was formed three years ago, was proposed for re-election by Ames of Placer. Sberwood of Yuba, in seconding the nomination, said tbat tbe people of his county are in favor of tbe Caminetti law and see no reason why hydraulic mining should not be carried on under it. The association should con- tinuo tj have at its head a man who is in thorough accord with the hydraulic as well as other miners. Grant I. Taggart of Oakland also seconded Neff, The report of tho mineral lands com mittee excited none of tbe controversy which was feared would grow out of it because ot complaint from the Nevada county delegation tbat not enough atten tion had been given ,o the subject of hy draulic mining, in which Nevada cuunty is so much interested. Even the reading of W. H. Mills' last letter to the mineral land committee, which tbo delegation from Nevada coun ty called for, tbe same not having been incorporated in the committee's report because it had been received too lale for that report, drew forth no comments. It was on this report that the opposition to the work which the committee had in hand that the committee was expected to manifest its-lf. and under the plea that the segregation n the mineral lands should be left by Ihe association entirely to tbe government, a vigorous attempt would be made to switch off the conven tion or to create such dissension in its ranks as would bo tbe means of disrupt ing it; and then the alienation and ab sorption of the mineral lands of the state could be renewed without interler ence and te continuod indefinitely. ANTI'DEBRIS ASSOCIATION Preparations for Winter Wcrk by the Hydraulic Miners The Association Is Opposed to the Erection by the Government of Dams in Cal ifornia Streams SAC P. AMEN ro, Oct. 15.-The execu tive committee of tlie State Anti-Debris association mc l at the supervisors' rooms today, Supervisor Johnstone in the chair. The usual business w*s transacted, among which the manager's report showed that, witli the exception of the Cosumnes river, the Streams are in very fair condition, but a good deal of prepa ration is being made for the coming win ter's work by certain hydraulic miners. The work being done at Michigan bar is responsible for the bad condition of the Coscmnes river, and it is tho opinion of the committee that such work ought to be prevented. The report shows that Valentine's rock dam. in Shasta county, built last year under perruil, had been carried away by high water, with all tbe debris tbat bad been placed behind it, being another of tbe many dams that have proved inetti ci"nt. Robert T. Devlin, attorney for the as sociation, made a report as to the status of pending investigation in whicb the association is engaged, and submitted a letter for approval to be addressed to Con gressman Grove 1,. Johnson as embody ing the views of the association. He says in tho letter that tbe associa tion favors the improvement of the rivers nnd that tlie nation is in duty bound to protect and improve the waterways. Mr. Devlin tells the congressman thai tbe as sociation is opposed to the erection of dams by the government in the streams of California.

LITTLE KOCK, Ark., Oct. l.\-Gov criiDr Clarke's determination to stop the Corbeit-Fitzsimmoiis contest at any cost was emphasized today hy tlio presence In this city of General Taylor ol Forest City, brigadier-general of the Arkansas state guards, who was summoned to the capital by telegraph to canter with the governor in regard to the strength of tbe state militia. General Taylor was in conference witb Governor Clarke for one hour this morning, and when seen later by a reporter was preparing to take the afternoon train for Hot Springs. General Taylor said positively that the fight would not occur. His purpose in going to Hot Springs, he said, was to warn the people there against the danger to which they would subject themselves should any attempt bo made to bring the contest off. Tbe slate guard, General Taylor said, was in good condition and amply sufficient to cope with the case in hand. He could, he said, with a few hours' notice, land 850 well drilled and fully equipped men in Hot Springs. General laylor wiil return to tnis city tomorrow and advise Governor Clarke as to the situation at Hot Springs and the result of his visit ihern. Governor Clarke, when questioned by an Associated Press repie sentotivo in reference to his consultation with Gener al Taylor, was not disposed to talk. Asked if he had confidence in the ability of the state guard to carry out bis plans, he said that the militia was a maitsr of secondary consideration, that ho could get all the lvro necessary outside the militia companies. Ho reiterated his former declaration that the tight would not be permitted to take place, and in this oonneoiton said lie could niaKo no distinction between a prize light and a glove contest. "Suppose, Governor Ciaike, "suggested the reporter, "Corbett and Fitzsimmons should desire to give an exhibition of physical culture in Hot Springs on Oc tober 81st, in wbich large, soft gloves were to lie used, would that also be stopped by military force?" "Corbett ond Fitzsimmons thall not meet in Hot Springs in sny kind of n contest," said Governor Clarke, em phalically. "If they ever meet they will right, and they shall not fight in Arkan sas. They shall not meet in Hot Springs eititer in or out of a ring. They shall not even shako hands." When asked if Corbett would bo ar rested upon his arrival at Hot Springs, Governor Clarke said that a good general never disclosed his plans to the enemy. Information came from a private source today that the Florida Athletic club is considering a plan by which they hope to overcome tbe obstacles placsd before tbem by Governor Clarke. The scheme is to turn" the whole affair over to the Hot Springs Athletic association. That asso ciation was incorporated by the stats of Arkansas on September 19. 1895, by W. L. Babcock, J. C. Lonsdale ana O. H. Weaevr, all of Hot Springs. According to Its charter the Hot Springs Atnlntic Club association was oragnized for the purpose of "carrying on the huslnesn of maintaining a park or place of recreation in or near tbe city of Hot Springs where races, atbietic sports and games could be practiced and exhibited, and meann of entertainment furnished either to tbe public or by sucb persons or associations as may from time to time be admitted thereto.'' Under this charter the people interested believe lhey can conduct a boxing mutch limited to a specified number of rounds with soft gloves without violating any state law. When informed of this scheme Gov ernor Clarke stated that ths state char tered corporations and associations for legal purposes only, and that no viola tion of the law would be tolerated under the guise of amusement. He was r.ot prepared, however, to sttito just what legal effect the proposed change would have. LAREDO, Tex,, Oct. 15.—The Mexican consul in this city, i,ameiU ilinz, said to day that President Diaz would never con sent to allow the Coihett Fiztimmons light in Mexico, and owing to the good will of tbe people towards tho president thoy would not participate in anything to meet bis disapproval. A representative oi the Associated Press was shown an official dispatch from the Mexican capital which authorizes the consul hero to slate that the tight should not occur on Mexi can soil. ST. JOSEPH, Mo., Oct. 15.—James Mc- Donald, the Denver sporting man, and bis associates, who have been arranging to bring off he Corbett-Fitzsimmons light here, have secured what they desire, and will tonight telegraph Julian and Brady and also President Stuart of the Florida Athletic club a guarantee of $30,000 lor the tight. They also guarantee that thu light can be pulled off on the island in the middle of the Missouri river without tnierfernee. OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 15.-Steve Brndie, who has been ploying in this city, receiv ed a dispatch tonight savins tie hod been chosen referee in the Corbctt-Fitznnmons fight, which will occur wben a place can be found where the mill can be pulled off. Urodie was one of the six men who were uioler cosideration for referee by the Florida Athletic club. He is a warm friend of both of the pugilists and was chosen as tho b.>st man to referee tlio fight. Brodie said: ''If the authorities at Hot Springs interfere, the buttle ground will be relocated on the island in tbe Missouri river near St. Joseph and will be pulled off to a dead certainty. However, 1 expect to rcft-iee the fight at Hot Springs," TEXAHK AN A, Arlc., Oct. lS.—Chaiu pion James J. Corbett ,iassod through Texarkana this afternoon en route to Hot Springs. About iJOO people were at the depot to get a glimpse of Corbett. They were disappointed, however, as Corbett remained closeted in the sleeper and did not show himself. A icporter went in, and being personally acquaint ed with the champion, obtained an au dience. Corbett looked like a gladiator and says he feels able to vanquish Fitz simmons without unuthcr day's train ing. "I nm disgusted with |the business," lie said. "I am losing valuable time and don't believe we will iiiht in Hot Springs. I am point: there on orders, but I don't fancy the move." The reporter asked nim if he would fight Fitzsimmons privately and with out a nurse. "I'll fight him for fun. Fitzsimmons is doing a lot of blowing and is running a big bluff. He can easily afford to malic wild statements when he has everything to gain and nothing to lose, while I have everything to lose and scarcely anything to gain. If tbe fight has to he pulled off in private I would be compelleu to hgbc for glory and amusement, l-'itzsinimons' $10,000 stake money has been attached and 1 bave $10,000 deposited practically against nothing.

WILL BE RESUMED MONDAY Whether the Lawyer is at That Time Sick or Well Some Figures Showing Approximately What tho Trial of the Durrant Case Has Cost SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15.-The trial of Theodore Durrant was today continued until next Monday ol ncount of the ill ness ofjAttorncy Deuprey, leading coun sel for the defense. While the prosecu tion made no objection to the motion to continue the trial, Judge Murphy was very reluctant about giving lns consent, and announced that the trial would be resumed noxt Monday whether Mr. Deu prey should have recovered in the mean time or not. Mr. Deuprey is suffering from a severe attack of rheumatism, which has made it impossible for him to attp.nd tbe trial for several (lays, but iiis physicians believe ho will ho able to re sume his duties next week. The cost of the Durrant trial to the city and county is an item of no small interest. Roughly estimated,the case has, since July 22d up tn date, drained the treasury to the extent of nearly ftiOOO. The salary list of the court olficirfls and pros ecutors forms the chief item of expense. Judge Murphy, for instance, has drawn for his service just $1 less than $1000. Then comes District Attorney Barnes, who draws a salary of $410 per month, with a bill of $1248. Asistunt District. At torney PeiXOttO'l services have cost IfSUO. Clerk Morris has drawn, at the rate of $175 a month, $525. and his nssistant, Andrew Branch, $225. There aro six dep uty sheriffs in attendance at tho trial, each drawing $tou a month, thus making a total of $1800 a month lo be added to the expense account. Captain Lees has drawn $400 from the treasury for the part lie lias taken in the trial, and Detectives Seymour nnd Boneu havu been paid $7!!5 each.
