Two Youthful Lovers Outwit
Objecting Parents by
How the Groom Rode Out
of the West on a
Woopt.anp, March 7. — There was a quiet
marriage in the oliice of Justice of the
Peace Ruggles this morning which united
two youthful lovers and was the sequel to
a little romance, with stern and objecting
parents in the background.
Young John Estes, who has passed his
seventeenth year, and whose home is in
Williams, Colusa County, had met and
fallen in love with the daughter of Mrs.
Mary J. Woods, a Colusa widow. Miss
Maitie Woods was only one year the junior
of her lover. For a time the lovers were
happy, but when young Estes talked of
marrying his parents, it is said, crushed
his desire with an emphatic protest.
Though dismayed the youth was not dis
couraged, and failing to win over his
parents into a conciliatory mood, he took
counsel of his sweetheart. The youne
people planned a marriage without pa
rental consent, though the widow, the
mother of the young lady, had not objected
to the union.
Yesterday Miss Woods went to Arbuckle
and there boarded a train for Woodland,
where she went to a hotel and registered.
Estes meanwhile had a more difficult task,
for in order to avert suspicion he had to go
to Woodland by a roundabout route. But
this modern Lochinvar was equal to the
occasion. Mounting his bicycle, he started
from Williams as if for a morning jaunt,
but no sooner had he left the confines of
the town than he rode to the eastward to
Marysville, riding swiftly under love's
urgings. He reached that city in time to
take a freight train, and last night he, too,
registered at the Woodland Hotel. But
he assumed the name of Woods to prevent
any chance pursuit and tracing of his
This morning the couple called upon
Justice of the Peace Ruggles and requested
his official seal as a notary public to a
marriage contract, which had already been
prepared. The obliging Justice did not
like the form of the contract, so he drew
up another and repaired to the hotel, where
in the presence of Judge Ruggles and
«u-orge Roberts the young couple attached
their signatures to the document.
Both were very anxious that the matter
should be kept a profound secret. They
left on the northbound noon train, the
groom purchasing a ticket for Arbuckle
and the bride for Colusa. Mrs. Woods was
willing that her daughter should marry
young Estes, but his parents objected to
the union. The lover, however, outwitted
his parents, and now returns presumably
to seek their blessing and forgiveness.

Sax Jose, Cal., March 7.— The trial of
the Barron will contest came to a close this
afternoon by the rendering of a verdict in
favor of the contestant, George Barron.
The instructions of Judge Lorigan this
morning seemed favorable to the widow of
the testator, Eva Rose Barron, indicating
that the preference of law was upon their
side. The case was given to the jury at 11
a. m., and they retired to deliberate.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon the jury came
into court, and asked to hear read again the
instructions as to undue influence. Juror
Crandall also asked if the jury could bring
in a verdict upon one of the special issues
in the case, if there could not be an agree
ment upon- both of them.
The court said it was desirable, if pos
sible, to secure a verdict both upon the
question of soundness and unsoundness of
mind and undue influence. The jury
again retired but soon returned with a
verdict. After reading it the court ordered
the contestant to pay over $648 jury fees,
which was done. The clerk"of the court
then read the verdict.
It was only partial, as it answered only
one of the special issues present. The ques
tion as to whether or not undue influence
had been exercised by Eva Rose Barron
upon Edward Barron when he made his
will was answered in the affirmative. On
both counts the jury stood 9 to 3.
At its own request the jury then listened
to the reading of the instructions upon un
soundness of mind. They retired and soon
brought in a verdict upon that issue, also
in favor of the contestant. The question
"Was Edward Barron upon February 4,
1892, the date when the will in question
was subscribed by him, of sound mind?"
The answer of the jury to this question
was "no."
There was much enthusiasm among the
spectators in the courtroom upon this an
nouncement and Judge Lorigan had much
difficulty in checking a rising storm of
On motion of Attorney Garber for the
proponents a twenty-day stay of proceed
ings was granted, during which time the
attorneys for the contestant will file a mo
tion for the revocation of the will. The
case will be appealed by the proponents to
the Supreme Court.
After the court adjourned Attorney D.
M. Delmas and H. V. Morehouse and their
client were heartily congratulated upon
their victory by many ladies and others
among the spectators. The trial occupied
five weeks and attracted intense interest in
this city and county. The estate is valued
at $2,000,000.
A Suit Againnt the Trustee of the Michael
Sullivan l'roperty.
Sax Jose, March 7.— Mrs. Ellen Sheehan
to-day commenced an action in the Su
perior Court to have her father's $145,000
estate distributed. The property is now
held by her mother, Margaret Sullivan, by
virtue of a deed executed by the latter's
husband, Michael Sullivan.
According to the complaint Sullivan was
badly addicted to liquor, and in Septem- j
ber, 1887, his wife induced him, on the plea j
that he was getting old and firm and liable
to be defrauded out of his property while I
under the influence of liquor, to deed her
everything he possessed. His conditions
of the conveyance, verbally agreed to, were
that Margaret Sullivan was to hold the
property in trust for the children, with the !
exception of Mary K. Sheehan, who had j
already been given her share in the estate.
After the death of Sullivan his widow
claimed that she held the estate abso
lutely. Nevertheless she at different times
gave the children, Robert, Richard, Vin
cent and Edward Sullivan, various
amounts. She, however, refused to give j
anything to the plaintiff in this action or
to make any accounting to her.
An accounting and a distribution of the
estate in the ratio prescribed by law, where
the father of a family dies intestate, is now
asked for.
The bulk of the property is a ranch of 144
acres near this city.
Sensational Features of a Suit
Brought by a Doctor's
Erratic Wife.
Allegations Concerning the
Family Affairs of a Ben
Lomond Vineyardist.
Santa Cruz, March 7.— For the fifth time
in nearly three years the divorce case of
Elizabeth Stewart vs. Dr. J. A. Stewart
was to-day continued for trial in the
Superior Court by request of plaintiff, who
asked that a commission be issued to take
the testimony of Mrs. J. Dickson in Bos
ton. Each postponement has been at the
request of plaintiff, while defendant was
always ready for trial. Whenever the case
comes to trial, which is expected to be next
month, it will prove among the most sen
sational ever known in this county. The
property involved is estimated to be worth
$60,000 or more.
According to the story of the attorneys
the Stewarts were married in Scotland
many years ago. Then they went to Foo
Chow, China, where Dr. Stewart built up
an extensive practice. To educate their
children Mrs. Stewart went to Europe,
remaining there some years. After the
defendant had accumulated a competency
he returned to Scotland on a visit to rela
tives and met his half sister, Mrs. Cathe
rine McKenzie, who had a large medical
practice in Boston. Dr. Stewart talked of
going to Central America, but Mr. Mc-
Kenzie advi.-ed him to locate in California
or New Mexico. He finally came to this
c«unty, purchasing a vineyard. So pleased
was lie that lie urged Mrs. McKenzie to
invest in land near Ben Lomond, which
she did.
Dr. Stewart's plan of conducting a vine
yard was expensive, as he imported all of
his vines and trees from Europe and bound
each vine with wire. Mrs. McKenzie and
her brothers and the doctor's children all
resided on the doctor's place, called Etha
Hill Vineyard. As the place did not pay
he borrowed $12,000 of Mrs. McKenzie.
Then Mrs. Stewart appeared on the
scene. Owing to her erratic conduct she
and the doctor did not live happily. Fi
nally she agreed to give the doctor a deed
to her interest in the vineyard if he would
grant her a monthly allowance, which he
consented to do. Then the place becom
ing more expensive and Mrs. McKenzie
saying she would leave to resume her prac
tice, he agreed to deed her the place for
what he owed her, if she would consent to
pay the mortgage. This was satisfactory
to her.
Mrs. Stewart, however, denies that Mrs.
McKenzie is defendant's half sister. To
prove it she had a deposition sent to Scot
land for Mrs. McKcnzie's former husband,
but he declined to answer any questions re
garding the relationship of Dr. Stewart
and Mrs. McKenzie. Mrs. Stewart denies
also that she signed a deed to her rights
and avers that the deed to Mrs. McKenzie
was made to deprive her of her rights. She
sues for a divorce and asks that the deeds
be set aside.
Santa Cruz Site for a Soldiers' Home.
Santa Cruz, March 7.— The committee
from the Ladies of the Grand Army ap
pointed to select a site for a Soldiers' Home
are favorable to a place near Twin Lakes
Park, and will so report to the annual
meeting of the society at the G. A. R. en
campment to be held in Sacramento next
month. At the encampment last year
in Oakland $2000 was donated for the
home. This year the balance will be
raised. The East Santa Cruz street rail
road is to be extended to the home when
Erwin's Argument in the
Trial of Hayward for
At the Close of the Seventh
Week the Case Will Go
to the Jury.
Minneapolis, March 7.— Erwhi resumed
his long effort before a jury for the life of
Harry Hayward this morning.
It developed that in the case of a con
viction—confidently expected by the State
— immediate sentence would be moved.
The defense has made every preparation
for a stay and an appeal. Erwin was ex
pected to thiish at 4 this afternoon, and if
he does so Judge Smith will at once
charge the jury.
Not a third of the crowd applying for
admission this morning got into the
room, which was packed to suffocation.
Erwin attacked the testimony of Blixt,
which, he admitted, was the very focal
point of the case. It was full of the most
furious contradictions and inconsistencies,
and unworthy of credence, he said. The
immunity promised by the State to Blixt
and Adry Hayward for the sake of con
victing Harry, he declared, was a revival
of the vicious practice of turning State's
evidence in vogue in England, and he
called upon the jury to stamp it out.
The end is not yet. At 5 o'clock Mr. Er
win turned to the court and asked for an
hour to-morrow morning. The court was
loth to grant the request. The members
of the jury were suffering, but consent was
finally given. All through the day Er\vi.n
kept up one line, ta break down the evi
dence of Claus A. Blixt and incidentally
that of Adry Hayward.
The case will go to the jury at the close
of the seventh week at noon to-morrow.
Two Indictments That Created Surprise
at the Capital.
Sacramento, March 7. — The Grand Jury,
which has been in session for several weeks,
made a partial report this afternoon, re
turning seven indictments, the principal
ones being those found against William P
Rutherford, a member of the local police
force, who is charged with manslaughter,
and against Charles ./. Merkley, Justice of
the Peace for Sutter Township, near this
city, charging him with the crime of per
The charge upon which Policeman
Rutherford is indicted is the shooting
while on duty of a young lad named Smith.
The shooting took place on May 28, 1894.
On the evening in question a man was gar
roted and Rutherford suspecting a group
of young men attempted to arrest them.
One, Elmer Smith, ran away and refusing
to halt the officer tired a shot, as he says,
merely to frighten the fugitive and cause
him to stop. The bullet, however, struck
and killed Smith. The officer was ex
onerat«d by the Coroner's jury and nothing
was ever done about the matter until now.
Justice Merkley was a member of the
Republican County Central Committee,
and swore before the Grand Jury that he
did not accept the sum of $200 to change
his vote from one faction to the other.
On the other hand it is claimed that the
Grand Jury possess evidence that will
prove that he did receive that sum. Both
men have been released on $5000 bonds.
The present Grand Jury, of which Hugh
La Rue, Railroad Commissioner, is chair
man, is conceded to be the best that ever
sat in Sacramento County.

Packers of San Joaquin
Valley Decide on a
New Combine.
Growers Only Can Become
Members of the Co-opera
tive Organization.
Recommendations of the Projectors
Receive Unanimous Support at
a Preliminary Meeting.
Fresno, March 7. — The first general gath
ering of raisin-growers this year was held
in Kutner Hall this afternoon. It was the
result of a call issued by Thomas B.
Hughes, F. C. White, William Harvey and
other large growers who for some weeks
past have been working on plans for a
raisin combine to take the place of that of
last year.
Thomas E. Hughes presided at the meet
ing, which was well attended by represen
tative raisin-growers. It lasted three hours
and the recommendations of the projectors
were unanimously supported. Several
representatives from Kings County were
The marketing of the crops is to be in
the absolute control of a committee com
posed of one or more delegates from each
district. The sole power to represent a
district will be left to the delegate. The
central committee will meet often during
the season, and will determine the prices
and styles of packing. The receipts from
sales are to be divided among the packing
districts in proportion to the number of
boxes of raisins each house has ready for
shipment. No one who is not a grower
can belong to the combine.
As the packers themselves elect the
members of the executive committee there
will be no chance for commission men to
gain control.
T. C. White, a raisin-grower and promi
nent banker, is confident that the money
necessary for building the packing-houses,
holding goods, etc., can be obtained from
the local banks. One dollar a ton will be
taken from the pack of each district to pay
the cost of building the packing-house of
each district. Five dollars -a ton can be
saved to the growers by packing their own
raisins. This single item means a saving
of $200,000 to the growers of the valley.
A mass-meeting was called for Saturday,
March lt>, and meetings will be held all
over this and adjoining counties before
that time, to discuss the proposed plan.
T. C. White, Colin Chisholm, Jacob
Vogel and William Harvey were appointed
to draft a constitution and set of by-laws
which will be distributed widely before the
mass-meeting. The feeling among growers
is much better than for a long time past.
From January, 1894, to January, 1895,
there were shipped from Fresno, Kings,
Tulare and Madura counties about 3700
cars of raisins. Of these a large part bore
the seal of the "State of California Raisin
Growers' and Packers' Company." The
total shipment for last year was 200 cars
greater than that of the preceding year.
Ninety per cent of the growers of the four
counties named entered last year's com
bine, but of these 1400 growers only 550
actually bought stock.
During the season thirteen official in
spectors were employed to oversee the
packing in the different houses. It is gen
erally believed that last year's combine
was a failure because the commission men
were allowed to control the organization.
After an existence of a few months it
broke up.
Five or six years ago raisins br«ught the
grower 5 cents a pound, casli being paid at
the time of delivery to the packing-house.
Last year many growers received only
enough to pay the actual cost of picking.
Cash sales have brought only from 1 to 2
cents for the finest raisins, and a number
of growers have fed their crops to hogs.
The recommendations of the projectors
of the new combine are as follows:
1. That a co-operative raisin-packing com
pany be formed in each raisin district.
2. That such co-operative company shall con
sist of raisin-growers only, who shall be
pledged to oppose the present system of mar
keting the crop through the commission
3. That each co-operative company when
formed shall officiate with a central marketing
committee, which committee shall consist of
one member to be selected by each of the affil
iated co-operative companies. Such committee
shall market all raisins that are packed by its
tributary packing companies direct with the
Eastern wholesale trader for cash, and not, as
heretofore, through the agency of Eastern
5. That each grower shall be entitled to re
ceive from his imekingcompanyon the security
of his crop an advance sufficient to enable him
to pick, and when the crop is delivered at the
packing house he shall be entitled to a further
advance not to exceed in all 50 per cent of the
market value.
G. That each district be encouraged to build
packing houses as near to the railroad as pos
sible, which packing houses, together with the
necessary machinery, should not cost more
than $2000.
Judge RisJey Decline.* to Grant a Decree
to l'laintiff.
Fresno, March 7.— Judge E. W. Risley
to-day denied a divorce to Lillian Denicke
from Martin Denicke on the ground that
there had been a condonation by the wife.
The case was tried behind closed doors.
Denicke was a rich bachelor, twenty
years older than his bride. There was
trouble almost from the day of their mar
riage a few months ago. But after each
offense the husband begged and was
granted forgiveness. The court, in deny
ing the divorce, severely arraigned the
plaintiff and defendant for having agreed
upon the terms of the distribution of their
large proportion of property,
■ A counter suit begun by the husband has
been abandoned.
But JRolen, the Unknown, Made, a Very
(lame fight.
New York, March 7.— The New York
Athletic Club's bouts brought off in the
clubrooms to-night were of a very lively
nature throughout.
At 11 :30 George Dixon climbed through
the ropes accompanied by Tom O'Rourke
and Eddie Connelly as seconds. Joe Wol
cott was at the ring side, but did not go
into Dixon's corner. Five minutes later,
Samuel Bolen, the "Unknown," a local
colored pugilist, put in an appearance.
Dixon weighed 124 pounds and Bolen 128.
In the first round Bolen got twice to
Dixon's body and stepped Dixon's leads.
In the second round he got in on Dixon's
jaw once. There is no other record of his
reaching Dixon. But he took much pun
ishment gamely in the six rounds. In the
sixth round Dixon went at his man
viciously, and landed right and left on the
head. Blow after blow rained on Bolen's
head, but he was game. Dixon landed on
the stomach and on the ear. Bolen stood
up to him and lasted until the gong ended
the fight. Dixon got the decision.
Therefore It Will Lose the Relay Cup by
Philadelphia, March 7.— For the past
seven years a relay race has been run be

The Steamship Havel Goes
Aground in Gedneys!
All Efforts of Tugs to Release
the Big Vessel Made
in Vain.
Nkw Yobk, March 7.— The North Ger
man Lloyd steamship Havel went ashore
on the north shore of Gedney's channel
early to-night, while entering the harbor.
Most of the passengers were asleep and no
excitement prevailed. At the time of the
accident Pilot Conner was in charge. The
engines were reversed when the buoy
marking the entrance of the channel was
observed alongside the vessel, whose stern
fell off to port, and before her headway
could be stopped she ran aground on the'
bar north of the outer buoy which indi
cates the entrance to the channel. The ice
in the harbor had again made useless the
electric lamps, and the buoy not being
lighted, was not seen until too late to pre
vent the steamship grounding. The en
gines were at once reversed at full speedJJ
but failed to move the vessel.
When the tide began to fall the Havel
listed heavily to the starboard. Eight tugs
were soon alongside the steamer in
readiness to assist in floating her at high
tide. There were 185 cabin and 271 steer
age passengers on the boat.
The steamboat George Starr and another
side-wheel steamer took off some of the
passengers during the afternoon. One of
the crew said that the Havel lay in a very
bad position, laying northeast, with her
bows toward Kockaway. At low water
her bow below the water mark showed ten
feet of water, and her stern propeller was
half out of the water.
At 4:30 o'clock this afternoon, when it
was high water, the tugs repeatedly pulled
on the steamer, but their united efforts,
with the assistance of the steamer's en
gines, did not succeed in getting her off.
At (> p. m. a dispatch from Sandy Hook
said the position of the vessel was un
changed and that the tugs were leaving her.
Among the saloon passengers on. the
Havel are twelve officers of the Japanese
army, who have been ordered home by
their Government. They have been study
ing the tactics of the German army in
Germany for some time past. They will
start for Japan via San Francisco.
Union I'ncifie Jietectives I'uzzled Over the
Check- Jtaisi ng.
Omaha, March 7.— Agent Teel of the
Underwood Chemical Paper Company is
in Omaha to inspect the raised Union Pa
cific checks which were so cleverly manip
ulated in Denver a few days ago. He said
that had the writing in the body of the
check been heavy no acid would have re
moved it, and he is of the opinion that
some other means were employed other
than acid to remove the ink marks. Ac
cording to the officials no more checks
have appeared, and they feel sure that the
experts have moved on to other railroads.
The secret service force of the Union Pa
cific is at work on the matter and startling
developments are promised.
Triple Tragedy Growing Out
of Stories About Young
Two Men Meet Their Death and
a Third Is Seriously
Birmingham, Ala., March 7. — News
reached here to-day from Temprane Oak,
Limestone County, of a triple tragedy
which occurred there last evening, as the
result of which James and Martin Lentz,
brothers, are dead, and Luke Coleman is
seriously wounded.
All were prominent young men and the
best of friends until a few days ago, when
Coleman repeated a story, which he claimed
the Lentz boys told him, which was
defamatory to the character of several of
the highly connected young ladies in the
When friends of the young ladies heard
the story they began to trace it down.
Coleman referred them to the Lentz boys,
but the latter denied they had told the
story. This caused bad blood between the
young men, and last evening when Cole
man was returning home he was waylaid
by the Lentz boys. They sprang out as he
passed, and one of them seized his horse's
bridle while the other struck him with a
rock and shot him in the arm.
Coleman quickly returned the fire with
a revolver. James Lentz was shot in the
abdomen and Martin in the lungs. Cole
man then rode hurriedly away, sending
medical aid to the wounded men, but both
have since died. Public sympathy seem 3
to be with Coleman, who claims self*
Captain Glorias Version
of His Trouble With
How the Manager Forced Jim
Corbett to Consent to
But the Australian Denies the Alle
gation and Is Ready to Make
a Settlement.
Baltimore, March 7. — Captain Glori
lives his side of the existing trouble with
Fitzsimmons in about the following words:
"Fitzsimmons and I realized before the
company was organized that if he could
force Champion Corbett to make a match
with him we would make money with
a show with which he was connected.
When the time came for signing the
articles of agreement and putting up the
first stake deposit of $2500 we had cleared
$1500 with our show already, $750 of which,
of course, was mine according to the
partnership agreement. I then skirmished
around and got a friend to advance us
$1000, making the required sum for the
first deposit.
"The show continued successfully, and
there was not much trouble in gathering
the second $2,500. Meanwhile we reached
St. Louis. Fitzsimmons was throwing
away all the money we made, in the moat
reckless fashion. He was spending from
$60 to $90 a week on hotel bills alone. He
bought a diamond ring costing $350 and
clothes worth $650. To aggravate matters
he had himself interviewed in several
cities, and stated that all the money on
deposit with the stakeholders for his match
with Corbett was his alone. I spoke to
him about this and his extravagance.
Then it was that he turned on me and
used epithets that I could not afford to
"He wanted me to break the agreement
with him. This I consented to do if ho
would only refund the $700 which I had
in the original stake. I got the richest
cursing I ever heard for my pain?. Now
comes the statement from Fitzsimmons
that he has dissolved the company, of
which I am half owner, and formed a new
one, known as the Martin Julian Specialty
Company. This, I take it, is in contempt
of the ruling of the Buffalo Judge, and it
is liable to make trouble for my ex-friend
from Australia.
"Fitzsimmons is acting the part of an in
grate. For four months he was without a
cent. I housed and fed him out of pure
pity ifor his condition, and after I ad
vanced him money to start out on the road
again he takes the earliest opportunity to
throw me down. But that is not of con
cern to the outside public."
Fitzsimmons says: "Glori's comments
in reference to my meeting Corbett are be
neath contempt and need.no reply. In
Buffalo a receiver was appointed, Captain
filori lieing notified of my desire for a
termination of our agreement. The court
directed that Captain Glori could not pre
vent my playing for any one else, and that
he (Glori) would have to look to his legal
right for damages, if he suffered any by
the contract not being carried out.
"The organization made money each
week, with the exception of two, the pro
ceeds being divided. These weeks, when
we were short, Mrs. Fitzsimmons, from
her own pocket, loaned the concern the
money to meet the necessary expenses.
"There is $750 of the side bet which be
longs to Glori. Of this |500 was borrowed,
and this has been paid back. On more
than one occasion I have offered to repay
his $750, and if he will call on my attorney
in this city to-morrow it can be very
readily arranged. My contract with the
Martin Julian Specialty Company is sim
ply as a performer. If he pays me my sal
ary weekly in advance I will perform for
him, but not otherwise. The articles
Glori says I published for myself and my
wife with the proceeds of the show were
paid for out of my wife's income, and his
statement is absolutely false and ma
