Thermometer Beats the Record at Sac
| ramento —Stockton and Fresno
Get a Warming Up
SACRAMENTO, August 11.—This was
the hottest day ever experienced in Sacra
mento since settled by Americans, or at
least of which there is any record. For
two hours the mercury stood at the 110
mark. Nobody has suffered, however, and
men and horses were about their work as
usual. Indeed, the average estimate, of
the heat was about 100 degrees. Tonight
there la a comfortable breese from the
south, and a change In the temperature Is
looked for.
Up to three days ago the prevailing tem
perature had been only a little above SO.
No reports have been received from other
places ln this section. It Is feared that
the hot wave has Injured grapes ln vine
yards not Irrigated, as the fruit Is less pro
tected by the foliage of the vines, owing to
the dry season. Irrigated vines have
heavy foliage, which protects the grapes.
BTOCKTON. August 11.—This has been
the hottest day of the year, and thermom
eters held up their hand* until close to
sundown, when It began to moderate some
what. The hlghi-st recorded here was UN
degTees, though there are reports of other
glasses somewhat higher. Reports from
near by towns were as follows: Luthrop,
ICS; Elliott, 118; Farmlntfton, 115 and 113;
Clements, 106; Woolbridge, 105; Tracy, 116;
Bellota, lis, and Rlpon, 112.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 11.—Maxi
mum temperature 61; minimum 56.
FRESNO, August 11.—The weather ob
server said It wae 113 degrees ln Fresno to
day, but there Is an able-bodied impres
sion hereabouts that he keeps his thermom
eter on Ice. Though the mercury has
been up to 114 twice this season, the heat
today was felt more than on either of
those occasions. This was probably due
to a greater degree of humidity. While
there wae considerable suffering from the
heat, there were no prostrations, at least
Bone have been reported. The heat Is said
t* have been even greater ln Madera and
Merced than here.
TRACY", August 11.—Today has been the
hottest of the season, the thermometer
registering 115 degrees ln the shade at 3
p. m., with a hot westerly wired. One case
of sunstroke was reported, but it was not
Commissioner Oeneral Peck Choose.,
His Staff and Starts to Work
CHICAGO, Aug. 11.—Ferdinand W. Peel:.
Commissioner-General for the United
States to the Paris Exposition of 1900. an
nounced the following appointments on his
staff, with the statement that no further
appointments would be made until he re
turned from Pans:
Director of Affairs, Paul Blackmer.
Director of Mining and Mineralogy, F. G.
V. Skiff.
Temporary Director of Press Bureau,
Robert K. Thompson.
Private Secretary, K. H. McGlbbons.
Secretaire Francaise, Count de Van Court
Paul Blackmer, Director of Affairs, was
Identified with the World's Columbian Ex
position as Superintendent of Collections,
a position which called for high adminis
trative ability. F. G. V. Skiff held the posi
tion of chief of the Department of Mines
and Metallurgy at the World's Columbian
Exposition and Is the present director in
chief of the Field Columbian Museum.
Count de Vermont Is Parisian born and
a member of a prominent family. He is at
present connected with the Omaha Expo
sition and was officially identified with the
Midwinter Fair at San Francisco.
Commissioner-General Peck goes to Paris
next month, hoping to secure an Increase of
the space allotted to the United States at
the exposition.
Only 150,000 square feet of space have been
flven to the United States thus far, an al
lotment totally Inadequate to the applica
tions that have been received by the Com
missioner-General. Mr. Peck will endeavor
to secure at least 500,000 square feet.
Commissioner Peck has sent out 40,000 ci
rculars to intending exhibitors and those
who have manifested a desire to be repre
sented at the Purls Exposition. He makes
an urgent request In the circular that ap
plications for space be mode Immediately,
*o that all arrangements nnd plans of In
stallation may be completed am] forward
ed to the directors of the exposition before
February 13, 1899. Intending exhibitors are
also advised that ln estimating the square
feet of space necessary they should allow
for only one article of a kind so for as possi
ble and consider that the relative sizes and
Importance ot the industry of the appli
cants will have to be the guide ln determin
ing the equitable distribution of the space.
This last admonition has been effective
ln consolidating several exhibits. In one
case twenty-seven kindred Industries have
agreed to put their exhibits in charge of
one agent. It is probable that a special
commission will be appointed, the duty of
which will be to award space and pass on
applications. Thus far more than 300 ap
plications have been received at the New
York offlce of the Commissioner-General
and 600 at the Chicago office.
Ths Hoosiers Succeed in Bringing the
Passenger Agents to Time,
INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 11.—Word was re
ceived here today that the trunk lines have
granted a rate of one fare for the round
arip on account of the Knights of Pythias
encampment to be held here during the
week of August 22 to 27. The eastern roads
have steadily refused to make any con
cessions to western cities which failed to
pass antl-scalping ordinances, and Indian
apolis being unable to pass such an ordi
nance on account of conflict wtth state
law, had lost all hope of getting a favorable
rate. The western passenger associations
have already made a rate of onn cent a mile
for the encampment.
Had No Hand in It
ROME, Aug. 11.—A semi-official denial
has been Issued of the version of the Co
lombian affair which says that Italy In
formed the United States that If Colombia
bad not paid a million pesetas by 'August
13, Admiral Candlana would boml-»rd Car

ment Is that its action is limited to a for

Salisbury Attacked by the Newspapers
and Charged With Weakness.
France and Belgium at Work
LONDON. Aug. 11.—All tho morning pa
pers, including the supporters of the gov
ernment, attack Lord Salisbury for weak
ness in dealing with the Chinese question.
The Daily Chronicle says:
"What is to be the result, nobody can
say. There is room for the gloomiest fore
bodings. Does the country realize thut
for want of a little foresight and firmness.
Great Britain may, ere long, be plunged
Into a colossal war? Such, without the
least doubt or exaggeration, is the appall
ing possibility."
The Dally Mail says:
"The door Is closed. The proudly boast
ed British lion does not exist in the Yar.g
Tse valley. It is a mistake; and looking to
what Lord Salisbury has done in Egypt,
his failure in China Is inexplicable."
The Standard says:
"These repeated humiliations are becom
ing intolerable."
PARIS. Aug. ll.—The papers are full of
significance of the "c'hlnese question. The
.Sutln says:
"In China the greatest game in the world
Is being played. The French intervention
should be efficacious and decisive."
The Soir has a sensational article head

The Big* Four Absorbs the Honon Road
and Wants More
NEW YORK, Aug. 11.—A controlling
Interest ln the Chicago, Indiana & Louis
ville Railroad, better known as the Monon.
has been acquired by the Big Four, says
the Herald, and negotiations are under
way tor the acquisition of the Cincinnati.
Hamilton & Dayton. The latter deal, how
ever, has not yet been perfected, although
it Is believed in Wall street that It is only
a question of a few days before an agree
ment be reached.
The Big Four, or Cleveland, Cincinnati,
Chicago und St. Louis Railroad is controlled
by the Vanderbllts and this road is operated
in such close connection with the Chesa
peake & Ohio, that gossip has intimated
that it Is a tart of the deal that the Chesa
peake road shall be eventually taken into
the enlarged Big Four system.
Strictly speaking, a majority of the Mo
non stock has been acquired by the finan
cial Interests that control the Big Fourand
not by the railroad proper, although the
effect Is the same, and It is understood to
be the Intention to turn the property over
to the Big) Four at no distant dote. The ac
quisition ot the Monon will give the Big
Four an entrance of Its own Into Chicago
over the Chicago and Western Indiana

tracks. The Big Four hue been dependent
upon the Illinois Central for an entrance
Into Chicago, having to pay for the use of
fifty miles of tracks.
The acquisition of the Monon will odd
ESS mora miles to the Big Four's system
cf 1838 miles and if It secures tha Cincin
nati, Hamilton & Dayton, which has 640
miles, It will have a combined mileage of
3015 miles, ln addition to this, the Big Four
operates nearly 400 miles of other tracks.
The Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton tra
verses most of the territory of the; Big
Four, but It would add much new territory
to the Vonderbllt system.
It Is calculated that a combination of the
two systems would lead to greater uniform
ity of rates and that both companies would
be a gainer. The Big Four has no line Into
Toledo and if it acquires the Hamilton &
Dayton road, the lotter will afford a short
and convenient connection between tho Big
Four and the Lake Shore and connection
between Michigan points.
Spain Still Fortifying Her One Im
pregnable Fortress
NEW YORK, Aug. 11.—A dispatch to the
Tribune from Gibraltar says:
Reports oiroulated by the Spanish au
thorities at Tarlfa to the effect that troops
had been sent back from Carbonero and
adjacent posts to Algeclrus, whence they
were being drafted to their homes, are
without foundation. Cm the contrary,
measures for defense actively continue,
and the 7600 men who garrison the line of
forts from San Rogue to Carbonero and
Guadalmlna have Just been reinforced by
an entire regiment of mountain artillery
with forty guns, and are encamped on the
heights of San Rogue.
The armaments of three batteries re
cently completed at Punte Carnero, at San
Garcia tower and on the Isle of Verte con-
Jfst for each battery of four quick-fire
Ordonez guns of fifteen centimetres cali
ber and two twenty-four centimeter cali
ber Ordonez guns. Twenty-five or thirty
guns nf smaller caliber, but also of the
Ordonez pattern are ln barges: near the
water batteries apparently waiting to be
placed in position.
To a military observer It Is perfectly evi
dent that the fortifications recently com
pleted by the Spanish engineer officers,
and now receiving their armaments, are
especially directed agninst any offensive
movement from Gibraltar. The Spanish
government Is thus not only taking serious
precautions against any possible Anglo-
American combination near Gibraltar, but
Ist profiting by the last days of the Ameri
can war to finish the formidable line of
works confronting Gibraltar, which, If
done in ordinary times of peace might be
interpreted asi a menace to England and
cause demands for explanation.

The Busy Servant of the Associated
Press Traveled Hundreds of Miles
and Stood the Test of Fire
NEW YORK, Aug. 11.—The steam yacht
Wanda, Captain Miller, which has been
ln the service of the Associated Press for
nearly four months as a dispatch boat, ac
companying the American fleet and army
in West Indian waters, arrived here from
Porto Rico this morning, having touched
at Nassau en route.
On board were Colonel Chas. S. Dlehl,
assistant general manager; Mr. E R. John
stone and Mr. N. C. Wright, staff corre
The Wanda has steamed more than M,OOO
knots ln carrying news to the cable sta
tions in Jamaica, Hayti and St. Thomas,
since leaving New York on May 3. The
yacht witnessed the bombardment of the
defenses outside of Santiago, was present
ut the landing of fhe troops at Baiqulrl
and Slboney, Cuba; witnessed the destruc
tion of Cervera's fleet, having on that oc
casion taken on fionrd eleven surviving
officers and men of the Spanish torpedo
boat destroyer Plutnm. nnd wae present at
Ihe landing of the American troops at
Tonce, Porto Rico. Now that cable com
munication has been restored in eastern
Cuba and southern Porto Rico, the neces
sity for dispatch boats has ceased, for a
time at least.
The Wanda has on board a relic of the
geat sea fight off Santiago, a slx-pnunder
quick-firing gun tnken from the deck nf
the Spanish cruiser Oquendo by the Asso
ciated Press dispatch boat Cynthia. The
Wanda brings mail from the fleet off
Porto Rico and also carries moll for Nas
sau, owing to the irregularity wlttl which
steamers now touch at that British port.
San Francisco's Record of Crime Is
Steadily Increasing
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. ll.—There was
a mysterious murder on the water front
tonight. Two shots were heard on the
fishermen's wharf by a couple of boys, who
rushed to the scene and found the dead,
but still warm, body of a man. At the
same time they saw a man running away,
but feared to follow him.
The body proved to be that of Antone
Scrafflno, an Italian fisherman, 2" years
old, who was married three weeks ago to
a young girl who arrived from Italy on
July 1. The Identity of the assassin is
unknown. One theory is that he Is an
Italian who came out on the same ship
with the girl, and that Jealousy caused him
to commit fhe crime. It is said lhat An
tone Gulsepi, a brother-in-law of the dead
man, Is missing, but no charge Is made
against him. When the coroner's depu
ties attempted to remove the body to the
morgue wagon they were forcibly resisted
by tha male relatives and friends of the
deceased, while the females of his family
screamed and created a scene unparalleled
in this city.
A Great Performance
NEW YORK, Aug. 11.—Over 0000 people
attended the Initial production of "Our
Naval Victories" at Madison) Square Oar
den tonight. The Idea of tho "American
show" was to create correct reproductions
of the American and Spanish warships
which have taken part In the recent naval
engagements. The entire arena of Madison
Square Garden was transformed Into a
basin holding 1,600,000 gallons of water. In
this hasln tonight Dewey's victory, the de

naval events of interest were produced
with an accuracy and fidelity which de

Kluge Will Probably Contest
the Document
SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 11.—The will of
Adolph Sutro was opened and read ln the
presence of the children and attorneys of
' the deceased today.
The will Is a very long document, eorr
talnlng a great many email bequests to
friends and relatives. It first made pro
vision for a large number of friends and
relatives of the deceased. Small legacies
were left his nieces, nephews and cousins,
made In remembrance. The will also con
tained a small bequest to Judge Wood
ward, of Pennsylvania, and another ex
congressman or two who lent him their aid
when he was struggling to get the Sutro
tunnel bill through congress. The be
quests were small and merely to show that
he had not forgotten them.
The will then sets aside about 1,000 acres
of land south of the park, to be dedicated
as a trust for charitable, and educational
purposes. No specific scheme) was out
lined, but the trust created is on wry gen
eral terms.
A specific legacy of about $30,000 was left
each of the children of deceased, to be paid
out of the first moneys that came Into the
After the payment of all legacies and the

Tho will makes no mention of Mrs.
Kluge, the putative widow, as It bears date
before Mr. Sutro knew her. She professes
knowledge of a later will, in which pro
vision wns made for her, and she has de
clared that if that will Is not sustained she
will make a contest. The will produced
this morning is declared by Mr. Sutro's
