THE DEATH OF RAMOS

SAN BERNARDINO, March 20.—The
finding of thu dcud body ot Florunzo Ramos
Saturday evordng about S oclock under pe
culiar circumstances In thu house o£ thu
Garcia fumlly Is the latest sensation that
Is puzzling tho officers. The deceused is
an old resident ot this city, about 62 years
Ot age und qulto a well known citizen
among tho Mexican portion ot the inhabi
tants. He is a man ot somo property, und
recently sold his homo place at the corner
of Seventh und L streets, and has ot late
resided at the corner of Seventh and I
Saturday evening lie was seen on the
streets until nbout 7 oclock or a little
later, when he was heard to remark that
tie would go homo. He was not apparently
under tho inlluunce of liquor at the timo
and wus in apparently good heulth. On
his way home ho called at the residence of
the Landers and Garcia families on G
street, between Fourth and Fifth, where
he was well acquainted. He made a short
call and then proceeded on his way homo,
as was supposed.
After his departure members of tho fam
ily left the house and went down town,
lenvlng the grandmother Garcia, an old
ludy about SO years of age, and ono or two
of tho little children. The old ludy, who
is the mother of Mrs. Landers, had gone
to bed, being quite feeble, and the children
were In another room, when they thought
they hcurtl a noise in their grandmother's
room and went In there, thinking she
might need something, or that the clothes
had slipped partly from the bed and that
she wanted them replaced. As tho boy
entered the bedroom he stumbled over the
dead body of Florenzlo RamOS, which lay
With lis feet resting on the bed where the
old lady was lying and his head on the
Tho alarm was given and the police re
moved the body, under directions of the
coroner, to tho undertaking rooms of Mc-
Donald & Sons, und although a close ex
amination of tho body was made, no signs
of a wound or any external cause of death
was found. The Inquest will be a most
searching examination and may reveal the
manner of death of the deceased.
From the appearance of the surroundings
Including the clothing of tho dcud man, it
was evident that he was about to commit
an assault upon the old ludy und that as
she pushed hlin away he fell to the floor
with his feet still upon the bod, and strik
ing his head, either broke his neck or died
Instantly of concussion ot the bruin. The
only other cause Is attributable to v sud
den stroke of npoplexy or some kindred
It is thought that he watched the family
out of the house and entered stealthily and
attempted to commit tho crime when over
token by death in some form. His victim
speaks only Spanish ur.d onthing could be
learned of her. her only reply to questions
being an unintelligible muttering in her na
tive language that gavo no light lo the
awful tragedy, she being greatly frightened
evidently over the affair.
LATER—Coroner Keating conducted an
autopsy of the body of Ramos today and
found that there were no external signs of
violence. There were evidences of conges
tion of the lung and internal hemorrhage,
but the doctor would not Buy thati he at
tributed death to cither of these causes.
In fact, Coroner Keating is so dubious
about the case that he has postponed the
Inquest to Tuesday, by which tlmo he ex
pects to have more reliable evidence. There
Is a distinct impression abroad that Ramos
met with foul play, and It Is suggested that
he never loft the Garcia house at all, but
was poisoned while there. No arrest has
been made at present, hut the attitude of
the coroner Is such that an arrest Is ex
pected before Tuesday's Inquest.
SAN BERNARDINO. March 20.—The
county central committee of the Independ
ent party, as completed at tho Saturday
convention, consists of nearly 100 of the
most prominent and best men In theparties
that locate tholr faith on the white metal-
In conjunction with the yellow. On the
committee are some names of persons who
were supposed to be solidly connected with
the "Old Glory" party, but who have now
come out on the advanced platform, to the
surprise of their former party affiliations
who had not mistrusted their defection.
The committee organized by the choice of
J. B. Parazelte of San Bernardino as chair
man, W. A. Shay of Highlands as vice
chairman and E. I. Martin of Redlands
as secretary. After completing the busi
ness portion of the program the convention
listened to a rousing speech by Judge J.
Noonan Phillips of Los Angeles that raised
tho enthusiasm to the highest pitch. He
was followed by A. F. Judson of Col I on,
who gave a good speech In behalf of the
new movement. The coalition of the vari
ous factors of the Independent party Is
most complete for the local political cam
paign, but each side will keep up Its organ
ization for the state and congressional bat
tle, If it is necessary, but the hope is ex
pressed that the Independent movement
may extend to all branches of the coming
Bound to Kill
SAN BERNARDINO. March 20.-There Is
evidently trouble and a tragedy brewing
on the desert, and the news from Bagdad
will be watched with more Interest for the
next few days than the actions of congress
and Spain. Sheriff F. L. Holcomb last night
received the following startling dispatch
over the wires:
"BAGDAD, March 19.—Sheriff, San Ber
nardino: I will kill Stewart tonight if he
comes out of his place tonight.
The doomed man is the keeper of the
Bagdad saloon, and there has evidently
been trouble. The place Is becoming noto
rious for Its murders, and the sheriff looked
upon It as no Idle threat and telegraphed
back to Stewart, warning htm of his dan
ger. This will not avert the attempt prob
ably, but as Stewart Is a fearless man, it
may result In his getting the drop and kill
ing the other man, In which case the tele
gram would bo Important evidence to nguke
it appear to be self-defense.

SMASHED THE WINDOWS
All Because He Disliked the Chinese
SANTA MONICA, March 20.—The twen
ty-six windows on tho ground floor of tho
Mooney mansion, the Santa Monica home
of Colonel and Mrs. A. B. llotchkiss, were
smashed to smithereens on Friday night
by an Irishman named John, employed by
the colonel us a sort of caretaker, in the
colonel's employ also is a Chinese cook, to
whom John has taken a violent dislike, so
violent, In fact, that he gave vent to his
feelings on the windows when his employer
refused to discharge the Celestial.
This son of Erin tried to convince the
colonel that the feeling of thu residents
In that neighborhood was identical with
his on thu subject of the cook, by telling
him that the deed was done by masked
men who wished to "boycott" the attorney
for employing a Chinaman. However, this
morning lie began to realize that it was a
lishy story and confessed to Colonel llotch
kiss that he did the deed. The officers say
that Mr. and Mrs. llotchkiss will not pros
ecute the offender.

to tho effect that the fruit blossoms of a
great part of the orchards of this city were
destroyed by frost the past week could not
well be farther from the truth. As a mat
ter of fact the damage was very slight, so
little in fact that It Is not worth noting.
The tear held by some in this city that
there would be a scarcity of water foT" irri

been dispelled by the generous fall of snow
which came with the stormy weather in
the mountain ranges the past week.

Upon suspicion of having been- implicated
in iho burglary of Mrs. Anna Brown's
house on the corner of congress street and
Orange Grove avenue, wats discharged this
morning from custody after being con
fined over might in the city jail. A tele
phone message at about 9 oclock last night
brougnt Marshal Lacey to the scene of tne
trouble. Mrs. brown had entered an up
stair room und fuund a man there. She
screamed and the man Jumped from the
window, alighting on his hands and knees
and leaving an imprint in the soft dir..
The Marshal saw a man sitting on the
sione curb on the East Colorado street hill
as he went up. Upon his return the man
was still sitting there, and tihe marshal,
after questioning hilm, arrested him. He
proved to be "Morros, the Greek," as he is
dubbed in Los Angeles, where he is well
known io the police. Morros denied a.l
knowledge of the burglary and stated that
he had simply gone up there to see a par'y
who had fruit to sell. He had not the
party owing to the lateness of the hour.
He had sat down on the wall to rest. He
contradicted himself several times, and an
other sus*picious circumstance was th*
fact that he had hailed the marshal with
"Hello, Charley," before seeing who the
marshal was. Mr. Lacey suspected that
Morros had taken him for his partner In
the burglary, assuming that the man really
was guilty. The man alsoi gave an as
sumed name. However, there seemedi not
enough evidence, in the eyes of the mar
shal, to hold the suspect.

MINES AND MINERS
For fifty years California has enjoyed the
distinction of being tho largest gold pro
ducing section of the United States. For
the lust twenty years, however, It hits
maintained this position in spite of tho
apathy or active opposition of a majority
of the residents of the stale. Those in the
cities declined to Invest In mining proper
ties or aid them with loans, while those In
the country maintained an active opposi
tion to the miners and mining industry.
Gradually those prevailing Ideas have
changed, and now the mining industry is
looked to again with some respect. For a
time, however, it was all "sunshine, fruit
and Ho Were," and the gold was ignored,
though It was this which organised, set
tled and developed the state. The present
residents of the state, many of whom
know little or nothing of mines or our min
ing history have an object lesson before
them In tho Klondike craze to prove what
an attraction gold mines are when weil ad
vertised. The Klondike has not yet pro
duced one-eighth of the amount produced
In this state lust year. Yet people are
going there from all over the world, and
many thousands ure leaving our state also.
Millions of dallars are being expended for
outfits and transportation, and millions
are being invested by companies trading or
doing business with the new gold section.
The output from the Klondike region in
1807 was not over two and a half millions.
California, in the same period, gave min
eral products valued at $24,2ai ,:i2S, of Which
$17,181,661! was gold. Our mineral product
is therefore valued at over $2,000,000 a
month. It would seem that an Industry
of this great productive capacity should
meet with every encouragement. If many
of those investing In Klondike ventures
or enterprises would put their money into
mining claims in this state there would
be more chance of getting regular and
steady returns. There arc plenty of op
portunities to be had here, where no very
great amount of money is needed. And
our own people should also pay some at
tention to our home mining interests and
encourage them, as far as possible, by
word and deed. There is no larger or more
productive gold belt in the world than is to
be found within the borders of the state of
California. It seems strange, therefore,
that we should have to depend largely
on the capital from abroad to open our
mines, while our own people make their
investments in other places. This has
been too much the case in the past. There
are thousands of prospects now lying idle
and in need of development in California
that Californlans should opon, equip and
transform into dividend-paying mines.—
San Francisco Examiner.
Gold From the Dragoons
P. E. Braley was exhibiting some excel
lent gold rock today from his mine In the
Dragoons near South Pass. Free gold can
plainly be seen, and assays taken show an
averago of $100 gold per ton. The ledge
is from eight inches to one foot in width,
and holds its value remarkably well. The
shaft is 60 feet deep, and it is proposed to
take out the ore and ship, some of the ore
being sacked already. We are pleased to
note this flattering development In this
section, which will tend to incite others to
develop their properties also and bring
the South Pass vicinity Into prominence,
as there is no doubt but rich mines exist
The strike recently made In the Gladiator
mine is said by parties who have visited
the property to be a very important ono.
The mine is opened up by means of tunnels
anda drifts to the 600-foot level. At this
depth a shaft was sunk 90 feet and the
seventh level was started at this point by
starting a drift, both north and south.
The recent strike was made In the south
drift, commencing at a point about 30 feet
from the shaft, where an ore body was
struck nearly six feet wide. They have
continued the drift nearly ten feet tn this
ore body and as yet it shows no signs of
lessening In width. While those In charge
of the mine are very reticent in regard to
the value of the ore, it is known
that It is quite rich. The ore body
in the north drift of this level, while not
being so wide, is very much richer. The
striking of this ore body at this depth only
confirms the oft-repeatedi theory and oft
demonstrated fact, as well as that the
mines of this section improve with depth.—
Quartz Valley Discoveries
Dan Kingery and A. J. Hay, who discov
ered a rich ledge of quarts on the old. hill
above the old R/ 11. Campbell hydraulic
mine In Quarts valley, still continue to find
very rich quartz, and are likely to develop
one of the richest ledges on the coast. Ex
ceedingly rich pockets are constantly being
discovered In Quartz valley and there must
certainly be permanent ledges in that sec
tion, although probably deep below the
surface, requiring capital to sink down In
systematic and scientific manenr.—Yreka

Recently a report of a "rich strike" In the
western part of Siskiyou county was chron
icled In the telegraphic dispatches in the
usual vague and sensational style of such
reports and the ore was rcproted to go
120,000 a ton Instead of the $2000, which is the
regulation figure in such cases. The la test
account of this probably valuable And is
the following from the Siskiyou County
Reporter of Port Jones:

a good property and the machinery Is

Charles Shellaburger in developing five
claims, located three and a half miles
northeast of Congress. They began last
October and have In the meantime sunk
fifteen shafts from ten to twenty feet,
along on the blind ledge. In each place the
vein is encountered. 14 ranges from eight
een inches to two feet in thickness, and as
says an average of $50 a ton. There Is at
present 200 tons of assorted ore on the
dump that runs from $200 to $300 a ton. Four
men are now working, and it is proposed
to put tho group in good condition so it will
be a producer. Tho character of ore is free

The New Mill
It sounds good to hear the continual
thump of the stamps over at the new mill
on Fiddler's gulch, says the Randsburg
Miner. It Is the beginning of a new era
In Randsburg. Less than a year ago to
day a man who was supposed to be well
posted on water and water formations said
to the writer: "You can never expect to
make much of a town of Randsburg, for
without mills a mining town is necessarily
tame, and you can nelfcr have water." We
now have the first mill and will have the
water in a very short time. The mill is well
supplied with water and will be better
supplied In the near future. In starting
the new mill Messrs. Pridham & (juinn
wisely argued that it Is better to have a
small mill and keep it running contin
ually than to have a large one and let
It lie idle half the time; that is why the
new mill Is only a two-stamper. But they
have ample power to run two more stamps,
and we predict that ere another six months
roll around they will be dropping four
stamps Instead of two.
Mr. Shope, an old miner and mill man, Is
In Chicago, where he has gone to buy

are pleased with the assurance that they
will not have to ship their ore much longer.
