THE FIFTY-FOURTH CONGRESS Tbe Dupont Case Considered But Not Decided EXTERMINATION OF SEALS Will Be Made a Separate Order for Today The House Spends a Day in Adjustment of Sslariss of I'nited States Attorneys and Msrshals Associated Tress Special Wire. Washington, March 4.—-The senate to day began the consideration of the C. H. Dupont ease. Mr. Mitchell spoke in favor •f seating Mr. Dupont, but no action waa taken. The Cuban resolutions went to conference as a result of a report from the committee on foreign relations, and Messrs. Sherman, Morgan and Lodge were named as senate conferees. At the instance of Senator Cannon the senate agreed to a resolution calling upon the secretary of the interior for a reason for failing to restore to the public domain non-agricultural and unallotted lands of the TTncompaghre Indian reservation, in accordance with the law of 1804. Senator Five, from the committee on foreign relations, reported the substitute for the house bill providing for the ex termination of the Alaska fur seals, whicli was made a separate order for Thursday. A number of bills were passed and at 3 ■clock the senate adjourned. IN THE HOUSB Th* house spent the entire day fixing the salaries of the United States district attor neys in the amendment to the legislative appropriation bill to abolish tbe fee sys tem. The law at present tlxes the maxi mus salary from fees at $6000. The only one case was the recommendation of the judiciary committee departed|froin, the western district of Pennsylvania, where the salary recommended was increased from $3500 to $4000. The salaries for some of the district attorneys were fixed aa follows: District attorneys, Arizona, $4000, California, northern, $4000; south ern, $3000. A bill was passed to authorise the county of Navajo, Arizona, to issue bonds for tbe construction of county buildings. Tbe conference report on the army ap propriation bill was adopted. The request of the senate for a confer ence on the Cuban resolutions was received bnt not acted on today. IN COMMITTEE. The senate committee on foreign rela tions today voted to recommend that the senate non-concur in the house substitute for the senate Cuban resolutions, and ask for a conference. Several members ex pressed themselves satisfied to accept the house resolutions and an opinion was ven tured by one or two that the bouse substi tute was in better form than the senate's original measure. Sherman reported back the resolution to the senate and moved the house amendment be non-concurred In, and a conference committee appointed. This was agreed to. Tbe vice-president appointed Sherman, Morgan and Lodge as a conference committee. The committee also decided to report the Pingley bill authorizing the extermination of fur seals unless England consents to further arbitration, without amendment. There was but one dissenting vote, which was cast by Morgan. Senator Morgan will file a minority report, taking the position that the regulationa made by tho Paris tribunal are sufficient for the protection of the seals, if properly enforced. He will be antagonized by all the other members of the committee, who contend that at the present rate there will be no seals left in a few years unless an agreement can be reached for the suspension of their slaugh ter for the present and careful regulation in the future. BLAINE'S BODY To Be Removed Prom Washington to Osk Hill, Maine Washington, March 4 .—"lt has been the cherished wish of Mrs. Blame," remarked Joseph H. Manley, formerly postmaster at Augusta, Me., where the Blame family re sided, "that the remains of her family should be removed from their temporary resting place in Oak Hill cemetery, Wash ington, and placed at Augusta. "Mrs. Blame has been negotiating with a gentleman at Augusta for the purchase of a suitable site where the remains of the Blame family may be interred, and it is quite likely the work of removing the bodies from Oak Hill cemetery will bo done during the coming spring. From the fact of tbe publication Tn regard to Mra. Blame's intentions in this respect, I infer that the negotiations have had a satisfactory con clusion. "It is the desire of Mrs. Blame to have her dear ones at their old farm, for she thinks, in common with the citizens of her state, that all the honors heaped upon her illustrious husband came to him as a citi aen of Maine. Whatever action the state may now desire to take in regard to the erection of a monument over Mr. Blame's last resting place will be entirely satisfac tory to Mrs. Blame, but she will insist upon removing tbe remains from Oak Hill and having them interretl in the site she lias selected at Augusta at her own expense. "It would be dijUeiilt|to picture a more beautiful spot than that chosen by Mrs. Blame, located as it is on tlie brow of a hill overlooking the picturesque Kennehec river. There has been a number of com munications passed between Mrs. Blame and the state authorities in regard to the disposition of her husband's remains, but everything was held in abeyance pending • settlement of the negotiations for a site.'' MILLIONS LOST Figuring Up the Damage Done ky the Late Storm BOSTON, March 4.—With the subsidence of the waters, which during Sunday night, Monday and Tuesday overwhelmed a greater part of New England, figures of losses sustained are coming in and from those received it is apparent that total damage in the section will be considerably more than 72.000.000. xliis does not in clude the wages of thousands of laboring men and women through suspension of manufacturing and other industries. Six lives have been lost. The main financial loss is divided be tween tbe states of Maine, Sew Hampshire , aud Massachusetts bears about half. New Hampshire has heen swept from one end I o the other and heavy losses at Manches ter and Dover will bring the total in that state closely upon $1,000,000. Massa chusets at Lowell and Lawrence and in the Herri mac river valley suffers heavily, but I f2~),000 will probably cover what she ! loses. i—— WOMAN SUFFRAGE The California Campaign to Be-In When Susan tiets Here Chicago, March 4.—Susan B. Anthony, 1 who leaves tomorrow for the Pacillc Coast, 111 an interview said: •'I leave Thursday for California, where, April Ist, we begin a campaign to educate the men that they may vote 'yes ? on the pending amendment to strike the word 'male' from the constitution of the ttate. I shall remain in oan Francisco to direct the campaign while the Rev. Anna Shaw of Pennsylvania and Elisa beth Yates of Maine will conduct a> se ries of county meetings tn each county of the state. We are now circulating a petition. We are aware that the matter rests entirely with the men and weft praying tbe political leaders of all parties to put the plank of woman suffrage in their platforms. Heretofore they always have begged olf when we asked for the plank In state conventions because their constituency had not requested it. Now we purpose having the constituency re quest. We are arranging to have the women hold county meetings and bring pressure on the county conventions. We are having the assessors' books examined to And out what proportion of the taxes is paid by women. We recognize no parti sanship aud shall make the same request of each party, if one party recognizes our request and the others refuse, we shall work with the first party. If the leaders refuse our requests we will put on our bonnets and leave the state." THE 810 CANAL The Scheme to Consolidate the Two Compa nies Doeen't Qo New York, March 4.—A dispatch from Paris to the Herald says: "The secretary of the Panama Canal company is distribu ting to the press the following: 'The new Panama Canal company is not engaged in any negotiations with the Nicaragua company. Tbe project of consolidation has no foundation; Mr. Bartlett has not seen any officers of the company.' " The Herald publishes a letter signed by the same secretary to M. Bremond Vera guade. head of the group of French capital ists, who made tlie preliminary contract with Mr. Bartlett. The letter says: "Veraguade's communication of Febru ary 24, addressed to the president and di rectors of the Panama Canal company, was discussed by the board as was also a certified copy of the contract furnished by Veraguade. The board rejected it mainly on the ground that it looked to the build ing of the Nicaragua canal,while they want ed to complete the Panama canal." The contract shows that it was made be tween Mr. Bartlett, representing the Mari time Canal company of Nicaragua. Tbe Northern Finance company of New Jersey, and the Nicaragua company on one aide and Veraguade, representing the French company pay f. 65,000,000 cash for the Panama outfit and give in addition one half of the share capital of the Maritime company, namely: 250,000,000 francs, the shares to be distributed among tbe the present holders of Panama bonds. MISS MERCERS' MARRIAGE Causes Serious Trouble for All the Parties Concerned The Lstely Un-Wedded Bride Is Arrested st the Instance of an Unwelcome But Persistent Wooer San Francisco, March 4.—lnez Mercer, a variety actress, was taken to the city prison last night on a bench warrant issued by Judge Slack charging her with perjury. The arrest was made on tbe Oakland mole, just as the young woman and Joseph Valet were about to board the outgoing train for Cripple Creek, Colo. The arrest of Miss Mercer grew out of the same transaction which operated to land W. C. Isaacs in tho city prison Mon day evening on a similar charge. About a year ago the young woman was one of the members of a theatrical troupe playing iv Portland, Ore. On one of the evenings after the show the members of the compa ny and several non-professionals sat down to a beer and ham sandwich banquet. To ward the close of the feast the crowd be came hilarious, and one of the non-profes sionals. K. 6. Westcott, a Chicago drum mer, announced his desire to marry some one of tho women present. Miss Mercer seemed to find the most favor in Westcott's eye, and no sooner had he announced his choice than she acqui esced. A broken down tragedian, who had played many parts in his time, volunteered to perform the ceremony. The couple pledged themselves to each other as man and wife: there was a hurrah of congratulations, more beer, and tbe party broke up early in the morning. From that day to this Miss Mercer has never seen Westcott. she looked, or claims to have looked, at the time, upon the marriage as a mock affair of no force. Some time later, however, she seemed to think it might be legal enough and bo, not desiring to be entangled in such a manner, she brought suit in May last, wben she came to this city, for an annulment of the mar riage. The case was heard before Jud h e Slack, Dom & Dorn being attorneys for the plaintiff. In that trial Isaacs testified that he was in Portland at the time the alleged mar riage was celebrated and in his opinion 110:10 of tha pat ties to the ceremony looked upon it as anything but a joke. Miss Mer cer testified to the same effect, stating that lsr.acs was present as ho had stated on tho stand. There was no contest, and upon the testi mony Judge Slack entered a decree an nulling the marriage. Lately friends of Westcott in tins city have taaen the trouble to look into tlie testimony and to make in quiries as to tiie whereabouts of Isaacs when he claimetl he was in Portland at the mock marriage. They claim that ho was in this city at the Belmont on Turk street at tbe time he testified he was in the north. His name shows on tiie register of that place, and the proprietor and clerk are ready to testify tiiat he was rooming there at tlie time. This is tlie allege;) perjury upon which lie was arrested. For testifying that ho was there when Westcott's friends claim to be able to prove he was not. Miss Mer cer was taken into custody last night. Miss Mercer refuses to talk concerning her case, but Joseph Valet, who seems to know all her secrets, asserts that the ar rest was instigated hy a wealthy resident of this city who is enamored of Miss Mer cer and who does not wish bar to leave tbe city. Ho refused to divulge ths name of the alleged pursuer. HE WOULDN'T TELL An Oklahoma Prisoner Refuses to Confess to a Mob PERRY, O. T., March 4. — News has reached here that about - oclock yesterday morning a large band of masked men rode into Tecumseh, the county seatofPotta wattomie county, Oklahoma, went to the jail, took out Jake McLaughlin, who was arrested some weeks ago for the murder of John and Jacob Mailing, two old farmers who lived near Wewoka, and strung him up three times. This action was the result of a statement made by a culprit named Truesdale, who is also under arrest for complicity in the murders. Truesdale stated that Jake McLaughlin knew all the murderers, and hinted that a man named Holbrook, a pal of the Christlani gang: Crawford, who was hung to a telegraph pole for bank robbery and murder at Wich ita Falls last week, and others were tbe murderers of Maunt/. The mob broke open tlie jail and strung McLaughlin up three times, hut he would tell nothing, and they left after releasing him.

THE EVIDENCE COLLECTED From Documents in Spanish and Dutch Archives THE VENEZUELAN QUESTION A Blue Book Prepared for Issuance oo Saturday Irrelraglble Evidence In Support ot the British Claims—Some Surprises to Be Sprung Associated Press Epscial Wire. London, March 4.—The St. James Ga zette this afternoon publishes a forecast summary of the British blue book upon the Venezuelan situation, which is shortly to be issued. It is said to contain extracts from the archives of Holland, from tlie latter part of the sixteenth century to the second decade of the nineteenth century, and extracts from the archives of Spain from Orellate's ascent of tlie River Ama zon, in 1542, and Martinez's ascension of the Orinoco river, down to Venezuelans independence, in 18H0. All the documents in this connection, it is said, have been ransacked in order to establish the British case against the Venezuelan claim for pos session of the west bank of the Essequibo. It will be shown, it is said, in overwhelm ing strength that the possession of that bank is Great Britain's beyond doubt. The statement of Sir Frederick Pollock, corpus professor of jurisprudence of Ox ford university, who has prepared the Brit ish case, is described by the St. James 6a settee as being "remarkable for masterly detail and skill in collecting evidence and for the force and clearness of his conclus ions. "Tne Dutch archives have been so well kept that Sir Waller Frederick Pollock was able to establish an irrefragible case for the British ownership of the Cuyunj basin, though there is no adducible evidence as to how the Dutch held the country between the Schomberg line and the Orinoco." The Chronicle says the government blue book on Venezuela will reach Washington on Saturday, and will be distributed here on the same day. "There is reason to be lieve,"' says the Chronicle, "that the pres ent state of the matter is that Lord Salis bury and Secretary Olney have both made proposals, and each has declined tlie oth er's proposition." The Daily News, in a forecast of the Ven ezuelan blue book, says: The results of a search through Spanish archives are likely to surprise both the I'nited States and Venezuela, as showing that the date of the first Spanish settle ment on the Orinoco was as late as 150(1, and was made on the bank to forestall the arrival of one Guaterral, who had been surveying the region and had promised to return and settle there. It is proved that Guaterral was Sir Walter Raleigh. The greatest surprise for Venezuela, without doubt, will be the p üblication of the secret papers exposing the intrigues be tween Spain and Portugal in 1750 for either expelling the Du'ch from Guiana or hem ming them in on the seashore. If the Dutch were not in possession, where was the ne cessity to expel them? The Britißh case sets up a claim by the conquest of both the Spanish and Dutch colonies before Vene zuela came into existence and although Holland, by the convention of 1814, ceded her possessions to us, there was, ac cording to the British case, no real cession because the colony was ours already. Upon this part of the case—a very strong ono - the government mainly relies. It dimin ishes the importance of tlie long diplo matic correspondence since 1840 and shows Lord Salisbury occupies a strong historical position. LORBEEK IS SAFE ! Pomona's ."larshal Gets Good Title to His Office San Francisco, March 4.—The supreme court today affirmed the judgment of tho lower court for the defendant in the suit of Thomas B. Atkinson against John W. Lorbeer. The cause was in the nature of an election contest and involved the light to tbe office of city marshal of l'nmona. The trustees of the city declared Lorbeer elected and Atkinson contested. The question in the case was as to wheth er the entire vote of the second ward of the city should be rejected because of alleged misconduct on the part of election officers. Lorbeer had a majority of fifty-one votes in the ward and the rejection of the entire vote meant his defeat. The lower court refused to reject the vote and this action has now been sustained on appeal. The supreme court in deciding the case laid down the rule "that where tho failure of an election board to comply with a di rectory provision is of such a character that it can readily bo shown hy competent proof that no fraud was committed and no harm done by sucli failure and 6uch vote is made then the vole will not bo rejected."

Rushing tha Work Philadelphia, March 4.—Although the olliciels at Cramp's shipyards say they have received no special orders to rush the three warships, the Massachusetts, Brook lyn and lowa to completion because of the pending trouble with Spain, there is never theless an air of activity about the yard that contrasts strongly with the recent dullness there. Faithful Unto Death Chicago, March 4.— W. J. Campbell, Re publican national committeeman for Illi nois, died this afternoon of pneumonia, ilia wife and father are at the point of death, and neglect of himself in watching them brought about aa attack of pneu agOßia. THE ARMY IS ANNIHILATED Continued from First Taje. police force as well as the troops of the garrison are on duty. The whole country seems to be as ex cited as the inhabitants of the capital and it is reported that rioting occurred during the day in several cities. The press cen sor, however, is holding back all dispatches liable to increase the state of alarm pre vailing and some time must elapse before the truth is known. The war office has heen besieged during tlie day by crowds of people and is now surrounded by troops. Later details of the fight in Abyssinia in dicate General Daboriidas' column of Ital ian forces sustained a very hot attack from the enemy and fought desperately for forty minutes, when thoy were compelled to re treat. The Italians did their best to cover their retreat by rifle antl artillery fire, but they were hampered in this course by the fear of hitting their own men. Their infantry made repeated bayonet charges to check the pursuing Shoans, hut they were finally compelled to abandon their guns. Toward evening, while still re treating, the column divided into two parts. One of these arrived in fair condi tion, under Colonel Ragina, at Addicago. No news has been received of the second section. lieneral Baratieri has also sent dis patches to tlie government regarding the battle, but it is impossible to get a con nected account of the event. 11 was reported 200 of the officers en gaged are missing. It is said the govern ment will publish no list until exact de tails are received. According to the Italic, the reports of the fighting which has been issued from the ministry of war have not been signed. They must, therefore, be received cauti ously. General Baratieri, in a letter to a friend, written beforo the final disaster, said: "1 am aware of the intrigues against me, but my conscience is easy. If I get through the campaign with a whole skin, I shall re member lam a deputy and then many people will be restored to their proper places." Two hundred deputies havo arrived in Rome since yesterday, and tlie greatest animation is manifested in tlie lobbies of parliament whore the disastrous defeat and the resulting acute phase in the politi cal situation are food for unending dis cussions. It is believed difficulty in finding a suc cessor may lead to Premier Crispi remain ing in oflice. Demonstrations have oc curred between Democrats and Monarch ists, and llgli'ing in tiie streets has re sulted. The university has closed on ac count of the disorderly propensities of tho students, and many arrest* have been made. the Cabinet will resign London, March 4.— A Rome dispatch to the Times says: The cabinet has decided to resign be cause of the radical agitation and the re sulting danger of violent outbreaks. Tlie meeting of parliament has been considered advisable in order to remove the causes of provocation. Reports unfavorable to Gen. Baratieri are assuming darker color. His rapid escape to a position 100 kilometers from the army, which was left to its own guidance, is bitterly commented on. WOnil FROM THE KRONT Massowah, March -I—Gen. Haldissera has arrived and assumed the governorship of the colony and the command of the army. He will arrive at the frrnt on Fri day, when he will meet Men. Baratieri and consult with him on tlie situation. THE PENALTY" IS DEATH London, March O.—A dispatch to the Daily News from Rome says: General Baratieri's own report shows he quitted tlie battlefield while tho troops were still lighting, and without knowing the fate of the column under Generals Dabormida and Arimondi. He will be tried for aban doning his post, the penalty of which ia degradation and death. The Chronicle's Rome dispatch says: Queen Victoria and Emperor William have telegraphed their sympathy to King Hum ! Bert, with the expression of the hope that the arms of Italy moy bo victorious. TRACK AND TRAFFIC NOTES The House Railroad Committee Listens to Manager Monroe Testimony es to Probable Earnings of the Union Pacific Railroad—Plans of Pro posed Reorganization Washington, March 4.—Tho Pacific railroad committee of the house today lis tened to a statement by .1 antes Monroe, freight Irallie manager of the Union Pa cilic. He gave detailed statistics concern ing tho earnings of the road for several years, und drew the conclusion that no gross earnings exceeding $14,000,000 could bo counted upon for tho future. Not more than 25 per cent of that amount could he considered net earnings. In answer to questions he Gaid tho Oregon and Gulf, connecting at Denver, did very littlo business from Denver south, which would otherwise have been handled by the Union I'acillc. Winslow S. Pierce, counsel for the Union Pacific reorganization committee, made a supplemental statement of tho plans of the committee. In explanation of reorgan ization pi ma Pierce said the total bonds at their face value and exclusive of accrued interest to be provided for in reorganization (exclusive of the debt to the government) would be $86,658,400. The entire amount of new bonds necessary to retire die old, he stated, was limited to $51,244,720, Im posing upon the new company an interest charge of $2,040,788, against an interest charge of about $3,008,234 on same bonds now, an annual saving of $1,648,446 could be made. The plan contemplated that provision for all outstanding se curities aud future corporate re quirements should result iv fixed charges of not over $4,000,000. The plan dealt with only the lines of rail road, lands, equipment, terminals and ap purtenant properties of the Union Pacific proper, between Council bluffs and a point live miles west of Ogden, and between Kansas City and Denver and Denver and Cheyenne, including the Omaha bridge, and with mortgages affecting these proper ties only, together with certain branch line properties controlled by the ownership mortgage trust.

SO cent* WILL RIDE AT CORONADO The Steams Racers Will De part From Santa Monica THE TEAM'S NEW TRAINER His Name Is Stackpole and His Repu. tatiou is Great Tho Yellow Fellow Aggregation Needs a Larger Track on Which to Use tho Big Pacing Machines There are decided changes in the Steams camp at Santa Monica.. The record break ing work, which has been rather slack, will commence at once In earnest, efforts being made to get ahead of Father Time at the earliest p.ossible moment. H. B. Gleezon, the manager of the team, has hired a trainer of national reputation to put the members of the Steams aggre gation in order. Arthur J. Btaekpolo is the new trainer and a first-class man he is. He was the trainer of Arthur Gardiner last season, when the latter went all through tbe Southern circuit, and coming north literally walked away from the best men on the national circuit. Gardiner also held the world's records for the three quarter mile and one mile, made under Mr. Stackpjle's supervision. From this it will be seen that tlie new trainer is a man competent to do all that is required of him in the manufacturing of records. One thing has been fully demonstrated here the past week, and that is the impos sibility of driving a machine with as largo a wheel base aa the sextuplet on a third of a mile track, and the cause of this can readily be seen by anyone who Is conver sant with racing matters, pacing and pace mailing machines. All one-third mile tracks that have been built up to the present lime huve been banked according to tlie curves, with a view of using nothii g larger than a triplet or a quad, and but very few of these tracks have been con structed with a view of record work being done upon them. It can readily be seen that tho ratio of the banking of the radius of the curve must be increased in propor tion, as the wheel base increases from the triplet to the sextuplet, and not until this m done can record time be made on one third mile tracks by multiple machines as largo as sextuplets. In consequence of this the whole team will be moved down to Coronado to the horse track there. This track has lately been occupied by the Syracuse record team, but the latter has now disbanded owing to various causes, and the track was about to be torn up by order of David Shafer, the manager of the defunct aggre gation. Hut this was stopped by order of Mr. l<\ Ed Spooner, the well-known cycling correspondent, who is now at San Diego in the interest of many eastern papers. So the Coronado track will be used by the Steams team for all records, the aggrega tion going down to San Diegc on Saturday. No time will be lost, but work will at once be commenced and records made as fast as the various men can be conditioned for them. John W. Campbell, the Spokane lad, has been released from the team at his own request, and went north last night to enter the indoor races at San Francisco. Howard Raymond of Portland, Or., has been added to the pacemakers of the team, and will bo nut on the big machine. All the men are in the best of health and closely approach ing record-breaking form. "Big Bill" Ran dall has recovered entirely from his nasty fall of three weeks ago, and is riding fast ou a single. He is too valuable to be put on a pacing machine, and will be trained to follow pace instead of making it. As a consequence, Dow, tbe San Jose lad, will be put up to steer tlie great sex tuplet, while "Rubber Bill" Hatton will captain the crew and hold down tho rear seat. Mr. F. Ed Spooner, tbe Bearings correspondent and Palmer tire agent, was expected from San Diego last night. He did not arrive and will probably meet the team at Coronado, where he is having the track put in shape for the yellow fellows. Mr. Chapman, tiie manager of the Pacific branch of E. C. Steams & Co., was in Santa Monica last week, making various arrange ments necessary for the removal of the team. The rain at Santa Monica greatly im proved the Southern Pacific bicycle track. Though the banks were somewhat washed by the heavy downpour, still the water packed the surface as nothing else can do, and with a slight amount of work the track will be very fas?. While too small to hold any such machine as tlie giant sextuplet, for single wheels and tandems there is no faster competition track in the country. Tho departure of the Steams team de tracts in no way from this statement, the sole reason for the leaving of the yellow fellows being that the multiple machines are too large to be used successfully on this track. The breaking up of tho Syracuse team has caused much comment among cycling men. The list of records said to bo made on Monday certainly showed that tho men were hard at work, and with such a pace follower as the time showed Hamilton to be, there seems no good reason why all world's records should not have gone to the followers of the crimson rim. Various causos are alleged as a reason for the dis banding, but nothing satisfactory can be gathered. Mr. Spooner, who is now at San Diego, laconically wired two words,"Shafer busted," but whether that means in team, purse or person cannot be ascertained. OUT FOR A TlMfe A Countrymsn Falls Into Bad Compsny and Is Jailed The patrol wagon was called to the cor ner of Commercial and Wilmington streets at about 11:30 last night to bring in two malefactors. John Phillips, a laboring man, just oil from a rancii, fell in with one Tom Atwood in the course of his perigrinations about the city, and the two proceeded to acquire a load together. Atwocd had no money, and finally Phillips went broke. Atwood proposed to the farmer that lie pawn his watch, which was done. Arriving at the saloon on the corner named, Atwood pro posed to the barkeeper that they enter into a scheme to rob the countryman of what he had left. Sergeant Smith happened along at this juncture and placed both men under arrest.

Hutchins and Bob Morehead, a sewing machine dealer, was given its first ventilation in court before Justice Kossiter yesterday afternoon. The Birn baum family, with whom, at No. 340 South Spring street, the free fliht took place last Sunday morning, were on hand as prose cuting witnesses, and the case was opened by the testimony of the oldest son. A subpoena had been issued for J. Blrnbaum, the father, but he did not appear. A lively wrangle was precipitated over his absence, and it at first appeared as though an imme diate summons would be given for his pro duction lv court. An agreement was reached by which all parties will be pres ent M • o'clock today, when the story of the great fight will be told in all its harrow ing details. District Attorney James appears for the prosecution, assisted by Attorneys Ling and Gottsclialk, while Mr. Hutchins will conduct his own and Moorehead's defense. The testimony as given on the stand would tend to prove that Hutchins and Moore head were the aggressors and precipitated the trouble. A 1 >ng and hard-fought legal battle seems imminent, during which all the participants In tho nffrav will toll of their parts in the melee, and Justice Roesi tcr has an unenviable job lo untangle the sasln.

Shortly beforo death the governor looked from one side to the other and in a weak voice begged them all not to be anxious for him. "I will be all right in a day or two,'' said he with a wan smile. All the members of the family were in the house, but they did not enter the sick room. Mrs. Greenhalge, her mother, and Miss Lilla Greenhalge, the governor's sisters, wero the only ones who were allowed access. During the early morning hours the governor seemed to be sinking rapidly. All tlie character istics of the deadly uraemia poison were strongly marked. He gasped for breath and the rapid heartbeats became so faint that tho doctors had to listen closely lo detect the pulsations, 'lwo physicians were present. At 11 ::I0 thero was a sink ing spell with a slight paralysis of the brain. The governor fell into a slumber and never awoke. The immediate causo of death was poisoning of the system, or uraemia caused by inflammation of tlie kidneys. PERSONALS Mrs. George Rabcock and the Misses Mary L. and Annie S.

TALKS WITH TRAVELERS Assistant Cliief Engineer James Lane, ot tho British warship Conius, which ran aground at San Diego last week, has brief shore leave and was at the Hoiienbeck last night. The Comus is a third-rater of 2380 tons displacement, 228 feat long, with 44.8 breadth of beam. Though Bhe looks lite a tub, she mounts fourteen guns and sho car ries a crew of :;i 1 men all told. Mr. Lane thinks that war will ensue from tho action of the United States senate resolution in regard to tho belligerent rights of the Cu ban insurgents antl that its action will be energetically backed by Lord Salisbury should it become necessary for the United States to make a hostilo demonstration. Tho Spanish navy, though small, is well equipped and the Mercedes is not far from Galveston bar. Lufal Arimondi, nephew of General Ari mondi. who so gallantly covered the re treat of the Italian army at the terrific combat at Belena, midway between Mns sowah and Adowa had a cable late last night which dispels the fear entertained in the Italian quarter of the city, that their compatriots bad been annihilated. It would seem that General Arimondi, on re ceipt of orders from General baratieri waa so situated, that immediate compliance with the order was impossible. At first all went well, so the dispatch says. Gen eral Albertone, with four native batteries and four corps of natives engaging the enemy, but they were overwhelmed by the hordes of King MeneleU. The batteries were useless and the native troops stam peded like seared sheep. Tho Italian force slowly retreating, llnally entrenched them selves near Belena. Their losses, so says tho dispatch, are greatly exaggerated, though many a gallant young soldier fell under tho deadly storm of poisoned arrows from Menelek's men. Jncob Keller, formerly or the editorial department of tho Vossiehe Zsitung, who has considerable interests through his family connections with Los Angeles county, thinks that it will be difficult for this country to avoid war with Spain, and that England and Germany will be very in terested spectators, observing strict neu trality It will be a duel between an effete monarchy and a vigorous young republic. It is conceded that the quarrel, if it can ba so called, is one which does not call for the interference of ilie great powers, who are disposed to recognize the primal rights of the United States affecting a large country like the island of Cuba, so close to her seaboard. G. W. Barnes, well-known as an operator in tlie wheat pit on the Chicago board of trade, is visiting friends in the city. He expects to see #1 wheat in Chicago before many weeks, and called Thf. Herald re porter's attention to the enormous ship ments of flour from San Francisco and Fuget sound points to Australia since last November. The Monowai, which was to have sailed for Sydney today, Is detained by the delay of the English mails owing to the storm and the non-arrival of several cars of ffour from interior points in Cali fornia. The Monowai will carry away one of the largest cargoes which ever left this country for Honolulu, Japan and China. She will take out besides some r>oo tons of California fruits, over 1200 tons of flour iv sacks, the product of California wheat growers. The demise of Dr. James T. Gheselin, a retired army surgeon, at the Occidental hotel in San Francisco on Monday morn ing is deeply deplored by his many friends in Los Angeles and, indeed, throughout the county, where he bad invested a large amount of money. Under Goneral Sheri dan he was medical director from Win chester to the surrender at Appomattox. About three weeks ago he was in perfect health apparently, as he visited thu busi ness ofllce of The Herald. On his return to San Francisco ho had a slight attack of paralysis, from which he did not rally. His career ia not unworthy of a passing notice, as he was one of tho rnoet brilliant medical officers in tlie United Statesarmy. Horn in Anno Arundel county, Mary land, in 1823, he was, in 185r>, appointed assistant surgeon in the United Stales army, followed by his promotion on Juno 11, 1802, as sur geon-major. Ho was during the war at tached to General Sheridan's corps as med ical inspector, and on March 13,1866, was brevetted lietilenant-colonel for faith ful and meritorious services during the war, becoming colonel in recognition for his devoted services. A quiet, unassuming gentleman, he was much liked in Los An geles, where in an unohtrusivo manner hia charities will be much missed. Dr. Ghese lin was never married, and his large es tate, estimated to be worth $1100,000, goea to a nephew in Maryland, who has just been called to the bar of Anne Arundel county. Captain .lohn McCuliough of San Fran cisco, who was for many years in tlie em • ploy of ihe Sutton and Beebe line, said that the southeasterly blow did muob dam ago to shipping in San Francisco, especial ly iv tho lower harbor. Hay bales wero in great demand at all tiie wharves and cap tains had to pay stiff figures, as tugs wera scarce, aud those at liberty demanded such high rates that it was cheaper to pay big prices for "hay fenders." Therevanue cutter Bear had a very close shave from wreekago hy the whaler Lydia, whose breast line broke in the height of the gale. The tide of opposition to tho erection of buildings over ten stories in height ia fast gaining ground in tho chief eastern cities and I think will result iv radical measures by the municipal authorities, said archi tect R W. Armstrong of Chicago at the Westminister yesterday. Land owners owe certain obligations to the public which they may not with impunity Ignore, such as their not shutting out light and air by structures which turn day into night in lesser buildings, and depreciato the value of ordinary property for many blocks m every direction. Tho tendency of capitalists is towards tall structures, and so marked in it that municipal corporations areever.v where considering legislation affecting their height. The matter will soon be set tled by tho never falling law of supp.y and demand. Tall buildings will cease to be erected after they cease to pay. Cut His Nose While walking hastily along the street yesterday morning Eugene Leo ran his face into a pane of glass being transported on a passing wagon. He sustained a bad cut on the nose, which was dressed at the receiving hospital and he was discharged.
