NEWS OF THE COAST. Man-Hunters Hot on the Trail of the Train- Robbers. FINDING OF MANY CLEWS. The Bandits Fled From the Scene of the Hold-Up in a Cart. THEY MAY GO TO SACRAMENTO. A Farmer Tells of Two Men Who Stole Horses and Who May Be the Men Wanted. Sacramento, March 9. — Superintendent J. B. Wright of the Southern Pacific Rail road has received word from tne officers ■who have been engaged all day in the pur suit of the men who attempted to rob the overland train last night, that the robbers are heading for Sacramento, with indica tions that they will arrive in the city before morning. At daylight this morning those of the officers who had gathered at Castle Bwiteh, the locality where the robbers first made their appearance to the trainhands last night, bo^an a systematic search along both sides of the railroad in the direction of Lodi. Within a mile of the latter place they discovered where a horse and cart had been left standing for evidently several hours. Following the trail of the cart, ■which was plainly discernable in the heavy dust, they found that it crossed the rail road track at an old disused crossing at Armstrong's and ran along an abandoned road leading in the direction of this city. The trail was followed for several miles, but eventually was lost by the tracks lead ing into a more frequently traveled thoroughfare. It was very evident to the pursuers that the robbers were totally un acquainted with the country they were traveling through, as the road for miles follows the section boundaries, and in turn ing the short corners they must have be come confused as to direction^ Another thing that proved their ignor ance of the locality was the fact that they followed several roads leading through the neighboring|fields into the various ranch hou.ses and were compelled to double on their tracks. The officers have reached the conclusion, after a thorough search of the country and inquiries among the residents along the road, that the men have been hiding in soiaeoM <>i the innumerable brush-covered slough;- that line the road in the local ity where the trail was lost, and that during the night if deemed necessary they will abandon the horse and cart and strike across the country for Sacramento. In the meantime all the approaches to the city are patrolled by armed men, and it is ex pected that the men will be secured before morning. It is the supposition of the officials that the i art was driven to the depot, where the trail was first discovered, by the third man, who, after tying the animal to a neighboring fence, walked down the track, met the train and signaled the rob bers on board as to the locality of the ve hicle, which was evidently intended to convey any treasure that might be ob tained to their headquarters in this place. That the identity of the men concerned in the attempt is more than suspected by the officials is evident, but they are ex tremely non-committal on this point. It is also believed that the men are the same parties who attempted to rob the train last Saturday night and one of them is an ex railroad employe. L. R. Hess, who resides about four miles from Elk Grove, drove to Sacramento to day and informed Sheriff Johnson that Friday noon two men in travel-stained garments, leading a gray mare and a bay pony, stopped at his ranch and requested dinner and feed for their animals. The men stated that they originally came from Texas and were cowboys in search of employment. The gray mare gave evidences of hard riding, being so ab solutely fatigued that it cou d scarcely move. The pony seemed to be compara tively fresh. The men had but one saddle in their possession, and Mr. Hess noticed that when they led their animals into his barn, one of them paid particular attention to a saddle that was hanging upon the wall and examined the ap proaches to the building. After eat ing dinner they took their horses and disappeared in the direction of the thick brush that lines the neighboring street. This morning on entering the barn he found that the saddle had disappeared, and a few minutes later a neighbor named Budd Cantwell drove up to his residence and stated that the barbed wire surrounding his corral had been cut during the night, and a valuable dappled gray mare had been stolen. Search was instituted among the neigh boring farmers, and it was discovered that the exhausted horse that had been in the possession of the two men had been aban doned on the ranch of Frank Kennedy, who. resides two miles nearer the town of Elk Grove. Mr. Hess states that one of the men who came to his place wore a white hat, nearly new, while the other had a worn black hat that had long outlived its usefulness. A posse was gathered and the country was scoured for miles, but no trace of the men could be obtained. During their search it was discovered that no less than live horses had been stolen during the last live days. THE MAK-HVXT AT LOJ>I- Sheriff* ana Detectives Find Many Clewa to the ltobbern. Lour, March • There have been many detectives in town to-day, but up to the present time little that is new relative to the train robbery has developed. At day break Sheriff Cunningham and Deputies Wall, Black and others were early on trail, and on the first train from Sacramento Detectives Gard, Hume, Ahem and Snyder came here, and taking rigs scoured the surrounding country. Cunningham and Wall found a place two miles from Lodi where a buckboard, with The San Francisco Call. lV^-inch tires and 4 feet 9% inches between the wheels, had been tied for some time, and traced the vehicle to Cherokee lane, going toward Stockton, where it was fol lowed by Cunningham and other.'. Another posse going north found a nest of four tramps, who said that early this morning three men in a buckboard coming from Lodi had asked the road to Sacra mento. Gard, Hume, and other officers at once followed the trail north, while the the other officers, dividing into two posses, remaining the tules to search for the rob bers toward Stockton. There are about twenty regular and amateur officers hunting for the men, as it is reported that $1000 reward has been offered for the arrest and conviction of the highwaymen. George Gard has the measurement • of the footsteps found near where the buggy was tied, and also two 32-caliber cartridges found there, evidently dropped by the rob bers while reloading their weapons after the hold-up. DETECTIVES IX STOCKTON. They Are Anxious to Find the Tramp Who Sate the Robbers. Stockton, March 9.— There are no new developments in the train robbery up to midnight. The chief detectives of the railroad and express companies, Gard and Hume, are here working with Sheriff Cun ningham. They are moving around town trying to pick up some clew, evidently be lieving that the robbers came this way. The officers are anxious to find the tramp who was on the train and who is the only person that saw the face of one of the men. The tramp was put off the train at Lodi. but swung on again and rode north on the overland. The tramp said in Lodi that the robber who got on the engine crawled over the tops of the express and baggage cars and met him face to face on the blind baggage platform, but no good description of the fellow was given. Officers blame the conductors for not holding the tramp as a witness. *■ US I'Ecrs aukit o UITD IC ».L Sacramento rollee Think They Hare Jlun the Train-Robbers to Earth.

PORTLAND HABEAS CORPUS CASE. A Much-Wanted Kansas City Ex-Voli tician IHsappcarg. Portland, Or., March B. — When the habeas corpus case of John W. Bradbury was called in the Circuit Court to-day Bradbury was not present.

Judge Hurley allowed the matter 10 rest until Monday, and at jthat time the Chief of Police mw«si an-wer the petition of Bradbury's wife or produce Bradbury.

Bradbury was at one time Deputy Treasurer and Assistant Superin tendent of Streets in Kansas City. BENICIA`S DRYDOCK AFLOAT The Launching of the Big Struc ture Successfully Accomplished. It Is Large Enough to Contain a Vessel of 2700 Tons. Benicia, March 9.— The California Dry dock Company's new dock was launched from Matthew Turner's shipyard at Benicia yesterday morning, and the big box went off without a hitch. A large crowd gathered from miles around to witness the sight and the occa sion was quite an event to Solano County. The tug Rescue left the city for Benicia yesterday morning with a large party on board. The tug also carried four 60-ton pumps to assist the heavy structure on her way down the slide. At least 700 pounds of tallow were used to grease the run, and once the dock took a start there was no stopping her, for the pitch of the run was 1% inches to the foot. At 11 :20 o'clock the Rescue got a hawser on the drydock, and the signal to "go" was given. The last block was knocked away, the pumps were set in motion, and the tug began to pull on the hawser. For just an instant there was a strain, then the box moved a trine. A great cheer went up from the crowd, and the dock began to slide. Down, down she went, gaining momentum as she sped along, and with a loud splash she struck the water, gaining on the tug to such an extent that the hawser lay slack and limp. The structure did not take on a drop of water on board, and the affair was a per fect success. The new dock is intended to take the place of the Merchants' drydock at the foot of Spear street, and the slip is now being prepared for its reception. The dock will be towed to the city in about two weeks, when her machinery will be but in. When in place it will have a capacity of receiving a 2700-ton ship. Shooting Affray at Fresno.

OREGON INDIANS RESTLESS. Troops From Fort Walla Walla to Umatilla Reservation. The Agent Fears That His Charge May Go on the War; ath. Pendleton, Or., March 0. — Two com panies of the Second Cavalry from Fort Walla Walla arrived here at 8 o'clock on a special train, and will be taken without de lay to Mission station on the Umatilla Indian reservation, from which point they will proceed to the agency near the station. Indian Agent Harper had been notified from Washington that troops were held in readiness at Walla Walla, but kept his counsel, saying nothing until about the time for the arrival of the train, when he gave out the information that he had re quested the aid of troops. He stated the troops may be necessary to protect the agency and whites who five in the reservation. Affairs have been disturbed on. the reser vation for some weeks on account of the disagreements between the officials and the Indians. The Indian court, in the case of Indian offenses, has exercised powers which the Indians claim were too arbitrary. The matter was brought to an issue in a civil case in the Justice Court here, when Wet Soot brought suit against Brisbrough and others to recover damages for an alleged assault committed by the Indian policemen. The case was decided in favor of the plaintiff, but was appealed by United States District Attorney Murphy to the State Circuit Court. Later Chiefs No Shirt, Young Chief and twenty other head men were arrested for dancing contrary to the agent's orders. This caused a riot in the council chamber, and a general row was narrowly averted. The chiefs were released, but were again arrested on the same charge and also for resisting United States officers. They were sent to jail, but employed counsel to sue out writs of habeas corpus in the Circuit Court for their release. This afternoon Judge Fee of the State Circuit Court rendered a decision in the habeas corpus case. He holds that the In dians are citizens, entitled to all the rights, privileges and immunities of other citizens, excepting as to the alienation of their al lotted lands on reservations, title to which was transferred subject to the trusteeship of the United States Government. There lease of No Shirt and Young Chief was also ordered. Counsel for the Indian court will appeal. The Indians' counsel were seen, and said they had told the Indians they must nof resort to violence in any event, but await the Supreme Court decision. This the In dians promised to do, and the head men say they will use their influence to prevent any disturbance. The only fear expressed is that the Indian! may get drunk and get into trouble with the Indian police. Fruit J'roapecta About Tfoiroattte.

Tragic Sequel to the Exposure of a Scheme to Engage in Swindling. San Dieoo, March 9.— The sensations following the exposure of a forged deed purporting to have been signed by B. Etcheverry are accumulating rapidly and to-day's development was the suicide of a principal in the case. Last evening a warrant was issued charging J. \V aimer, a real estate dealer, with forgery. He was taken before Justice Bryan and admitted to bail in $2000, where upon he was released. This morning W aimer was at his office in the lawyers' block as usual, but declined to discuss the forgery matter, except to re peat a positive denial that he was guilty of forgery. About 11 o'clock Walmer disappeared from his office, and a few minutes past 1 o'clock there came a report, fully verified, that he had committed suicide. Inquiry showed that after leaving the office he had gone to his residence at 722 Second* street. On arriving he told his wife he was ill, and going to his room lay down upon his bed, but without removing his clothes. A few minutes later Mrs. Walmer saw the illness was serious and called Dr. Luscornb, who lives but a few doors away. Walmer soon went into spasms and ex pired at about 1 o'clock, the various physi cians who had been in consultation being unable to save him. They agree that death was due to strychnine poisoning, supplemented by a heavy draught of chloroform. Walmer leaves a widow and a son 12 years old. They formerly lived at Cincin mati, where they have relatives. After Walmer's death Frank Ethridge was arrested on the charge of complicity in the attempted fraud. He was held in $2000 bonds. Other warrants are out, anditisexpscted to prove that a wide-reaching conspiracy exists for swindling in real estate opera tions in various cities of the State, the headquarters of the gang being at San Francisco.

Los Angeles, March ft. — The mystery of the woman's leg which was found in a garbage barrel in the rear of a building on South Broadway a few days ago is about to be cleared up.

Tacoma, March 9. — The Government officers here are of the opinion that Jack Forbes, the alleged notorious smuggler, and his friends tricked the United States Circuit Court Wednesday, when the jury which had found Forbes guilty of smuggling opium was discharged by Judge Hanford because Forbes was not in court to hear the verdict. Half an hour later Forbes was found walking in an op posite direction from the court. He claimed he had "overslept" and had not intended to disobey the court by his absence. These allegations have been set up as basis of a motion to set aside the $2000 judgment which Judge Hanford ordered entered against Miles Gibbons and Bert Hill, Forbes' bondsmen. Gibbons is a saloon-keeper and prominent Democratic politician. He formerly belonged to the Tammany organization in New York. Hill was formerly assistant city treasurer. The Government to-day filed cross affi davits against setting aside the judgment. It is alleged that Forbes had twice pre viously been absent when wanted, caus ing the court to admonish him and his lawyer that he must remain in court. The riling of these affidavits brings out the fact that Government officers have been making a quiet investigation in re gard to Forbes' actions and whereabouts during the trial. It was learned that he was not drunk. From information secured and actions of the jury it is believed by part of the Gov ernment officers that an attempt was made to "interview" one juror. The Government believed it had a sure case, and the jury is said to have stood eleven to one after a few ballots had been taken. The obstinate juror, it is known, hung out all day and all night, being finally in duced to sign the verdict of guilty after sixty ballots were taken on promise of the others to recommend mercy. Some officers concluded either Forbes had apparent reason for believing the jury would disagree or that on Wednesday morning he had means of knowing what the verdict was and purposely staid away knowing the jury would be discharged, and thereby securing another trial if not dismissal of the case, as this was the sec ond trial. It is claimed he has rich back ers who will pay the bondsmen if they lose, though a strong effort will be made so have the judgment set aside. Wednesday Forbes was put under $2000 bonds again "to appear for trial next June, but as a result of his escapade he could not secure bondsmen and languishes in jail. Yesterday he nearly created a riot in the county jail because the Marshal would not send him a bottle of whisky. PRICE FIVE CENTS. FOR THE NEW ROAD Discussion .in Assembly on Proposed Lease of Marsh Lands. FIGHT ON THE MEASURE. Efforts to Delay Action Are Squelched by the Friends of the Enterprise. ITS OPPONENTS FEW IN NUMBER The Bill Passes Its Second Reading and Then Ensues a Long: Debate. Sacramento. March n.— For the first time in the history of California the legislators were called upon to array themselves against a rival railroad line and in opposi tion to the wishes of the people, but only a few showed any inclination to do so. During the last twenty-four hours the Ban Joaquin Valley road has been the topic of legislative conversation. A wed; a^o such a condition as now confronts the legislators was not even' dreamed of. In consequence, the various Assemblymen whose necks have grown calloused under the Southern Pacific collar were not sensi tive enough to feel which way their ruling influence was urging them. This afternoon they were in better form and knew more what they wanted. Major Giilis, "Lou" Martin and "Jack" Massey had been busily buttonholing their "dear friends," and as a result the old plan of trying to cau93 delay by amendments was begun. The question voted upon to-day in the Assembly was one affecting the amending of the bill to allow foreign corporations to be given the right to lease terminal facili ties. Only two men voted for the proposition. These were Judson C. Brusie of Sacra mento and William M. Cutter of Yuba. On the negative side were the names of a number of men who, while they pretended to be friends of the bill, yet proposed amendments which, while they did not change it* intent in the least, occasioned a delay of at least forty-eight hours in its consideration. The two men who are inimical to, and fifty-four men who protest their friendship for the San Joaquin Valley Road, are: Ayes— Brusie, Cutter— 2.
