upon the question of jurisdiction in the
<ase where citizens of a State which is
party to the suit are joined with those of
another State, the Chief Justice said:
"If, by virtue of subject matter, the case
comes within the judicial power of the
United States, it does not follow that it
comes within the original jurisdiction of
this court. Jurisdiction does not obtain
simply because the State is a party. It
was held at an early day that Congress
could either enlarge or restrict the original
jurisdiction of this court, and no attempt
to do so is suggested here. What Congress
may have power to do in relation to the ju
risdiction of the courts of the United
States is not in question, but whether,
where the constitution provides that
this court shall have an original juris
diction in cases in which the Siate is
plaintiff and the citizens of another State
the defendant, that jurisdiction can be
held to embrace a suit between a State
and citizens of another State. We are of
the opinion that our original jurisdiction
can be held to embrace a suit between the
State and the citizens of another State and
of the same State. We are of the opinion
our original jurisdiction cannot thus be
extended, and the bill must be dismissed
for want of parties who should be joined,
but cannot be without ousting jurisdic
Justice Harlan, in a dissenting opinion,
civod the boundary suit in Florida against
Georgia, in which the Attorney-General
was allowed to file proofs for the United
States without making the Government a
party to the case in a technical sense, and
be < ontended that practically the same
course had been pursued in this case, the
city of Oakland having been allowed to tile
briefs and documents to illustrate its
alleged title and to participate in the tak
ing of evidence.
•The case has been fully heard upon its
merits," he continued, "as they involve the
rights of California and the Southern Pa
citic Company and tne city of Oakland.
All those parties earnestly desire that we
proceed to a final decree on its merits. If
any other party is interested in the result
of the case we can hold cause until that
party, if it so wishes, can make proof of
such interest and its nature, just as the
city of Oakland has done.
'•The court did not say that the decree as
between California and the Southern Pa
cific might legally affect the claims of
others, or that it could be pleaded in the
bar in any subsequent suit; therefore it
was difficult for him to understand why
the court should not exercise its obliga
tion and decide the case between the State
and the corporation."
In conclusion Justice Harlan asked how
the State of California was to obtain judi
cial determination of the controversy. The
effectiveness of such a suit would depend
upon the ability of the State to bring the
Kentucky corporation into court, so it
■would be bound by a final decree. Framers
of the constitution did not intend to sub
ject the State to the indignity of being
compelled to submit its controversies with
the citizens of other States to the court of
such other States.
Justice Field added a few words of regret
that he could not settle the matter, as it
would bring so much trouble to the State.
So Thinks the Attorney for the
City in the Great Case
"lt settles nothing, absolutely nothing,
except that Attorney-General Hart had no
proper right to bring the suit, and that I
have contended all along," said Hon. W.
B. Davis, attorney for the city of Oakland
in her great water-front contest, speaking
% yesterday of the decision of the United
States Supreme Court dismissing the case
of California vs. the Southern Pacific of
Kentucky for lack of jurisdiction.
"If it indicates anything further than
the exact language states then it is that
the State's title is not good. That is what
we expect the court to finally decide. As
for the Southern Pacific it gets no comfort
from the decision whatever, unless it
draws comfort from very intangible quan
"Attorney-General Hart bronght the
suit just determined with the purpose of
cutting across lots — avoiding the loss of
time and the wear and tear of reaching the
United States Supreme Court through the
regular course of the series of lower courts.
He was anxious to see the long-pending
case brought to a close during his term of
office. He therefore endeavored to bring
it before the Supreme Court in its original
jurisdiction— the suit of a State against
the people of another State. The title of
the suit was the State of California against
the Southern Pacific Railroad of Kentucky.
"Now General Hart's position was in
herently weak, however good his purpose
may have been. The State of California,
by act of Legislature, granted the water
front to the city of Oakland. The South
ern Pacific claims its title througn alleged
grants from the city. But General Hart
brings suit against the Southern Pacific to
quiet the title of the State without
the State having repealed the act by
which it granted title to the city of Oak
land. The city of Oakland claims title to
its own water front, and the proper and
logical disputants are the railroad com
pany and the city.
"General Hart when contemplating the
beginning of this suit asked me to join
him in the case on behalf of the State, but
I could not do so because I did not believe
in the State's premises; further than that
I did not believe anything would be gained
by a trial of the case in which the whole
case, with all parties to it, was not pre
sented. For that reason I tried to dis
suade him from bringing the suit, and he
promised to call upon me again before he
began- it. He did so, but his mind was
made up. I told him that he was taking
the case that presented the strongest feat
ures for the Southern Pacific, for it singled
out for contest their right to the few bits
of improved property. However, he filed
his suit in the courts here, naming the
Southern Pacific of Kentucky and seventy
other persons as defendants. In the
United States Supreme Court these seventy
others had to be eliminated in order to get
the original jurisdiction, the case standing
'the State of California vs. the Southern
Pacific of Kentucky.'
"They had been working on the case for
several months, and went to Washington
With about 000 pages of printed matter
presenting their case. We got hold of this,
ran it through, discovering that they had
a few things in it, but that there were a
great many other things that weren't in it.
I took the train to Washington and asked
to be allowed to intervene, but this was not
granted. We were, however, allowed to
get in as a friend of the court. A eoiumis- i
sioner was sent out to take further testi
mony and remained here all last summer,
hearing new evidence, studying maps,
charts, etc. It is proper to say that Gen
eral Hart accepted all this in good part and
took the city's suggestions in many in
"The arguments following all this took
place last January. The case of the city
tvas fully presented and we were quite will
ing to have the case decided upon its mer
its. However, this has not been done. The
Court has evidently passed judgment upon
'.he case as presented— has taken cogni
zance of the illogical position of the State's
attorney and declines to pass judgment
when other great interests are affected,
but not represented, in the contest.
"The effect of the judgment is simply to
stand the State out of it and leave the two
contestants face to face. This suit simply
acted upon the real contest like the friendly
individual who pulls at the elbow of a man
in a glove contest. The man at our elbow
is out of it now. We have gained this,
however, that the Supreme Court is now
fully informed of the facts. There is no
man living who can state, those facts in a
day. They have been presented both in
printed testimony and in argument, and
when the case comes up again on the full
presentation we will have that advantage.
"There are five water-front cases now
pending in the courts awaiting judgment,
all of which will probably go on to the
United States Supreme Court. The case of
the State against the city, in which we have
judgment in the lower court, will come up
before the State Supreme Court in bank in
"The water-front company's appeal from
the order denying a change of venue in the
main case tried before Judge Ogden will
come up at the same time. •
"Two cases are before Judge McKenna
known as the Cook case and the foot of
Broadway case. Tiiese were submitted to
him some months ago and he has been
waiting for the ruling of the Supreme
Court. He will now, of course, act upon
his own judgment.
"The fifth is the main case which has
been on trial before Judge Ogden for
months and which has been recently sub
mitted. All of these cases' are before the
courts and we are awaiting decisions upon
them. They are distributed through the
Superior, State Supreme and United States
Circuit Court. They stand now relatively
as they stood when the Chicago lake front
decision was rendered two years ago and
struck a blow for public rights. These de
cisions in more important cases are being
looked for most any day. Judge Ogden
at the conclusion of our argument said lie
would wait for the decision in this case.
Now that that has been disposed of he will
work upon his own lines. These cases will
all no doubt be carried to the United States
Supreme Court."
Spaniards Said to Have Been
Anxious to Fire Upon
American Vessels. .
Now Comes a Report That an
English Steamer Has Been
NEW YORK, March 18.— The Ward line
steamer Seguranca arrived in port to-day
three days out from Havana, Cuba.
Speaking of the Allianca matter one
of the passengers said that he heard
a Spanish official say the Spaniards
had been waiting a chance to fire upon
American vessels, as they believe the
Americans were aiding the insurgents. He
furthermore said all Spaniards felt un
friendly toward Americans for the same
reason. ,
As to the revolution the provinces en

of about 8000 regulars and 3500 more are
now en route from Spain.
There are about 50,000 volunteers who
will take up arms for Spain, but the
Cubans seem to think liltle of them as

The Cubans say that the rebels have
things all their own way in the eastern
part of the islands, but are committing no
depredations. They frequently invade
towns for supplies, but always pay for
what they get.
A World cable from Havana, Cuba, says
the Spanish cruiser Corde de Vanilor fired
on an English steamer. It is presumed
here the cruiser was mistaken in the na
tionality of the flag, and it was the Al
lianca she fired upon.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 18.— A
special to the Florida Citizen from Key
West, Fla., says: A letter has been re
ceived here from Cuba stating that the
Spanish gunboat Alcedeo fired upon and
sunk a supposed American schooner off
Puerto Padre with sixteen people aboard.
It is rumored that the schooner from
Key West was the Golden Hind, of Key
West, which left here several weeks ago ior
a cargo of fruit, with a crew of sixteen men,
had to pass Puerto Padre and may have
been the vessel in question. The schoon
ers Louis Hastings and Lily also sailed for
fruit several days ago.

strongest advocates of the Nicaraguan
Canal measure, and while deploring the
fact that it was killed through the action
of the Committee on Rules of the last Con

Brutal Lynching by the
Vigilantes in Ne
The Victim Suspected of Be
ing in League With
Suspected Men Under Arrest, and
They Will Be Compelled
to Confess.
OMAHA. March 18.— A special to the
Bee from Butte, Nebr., says:
Some time Friday Mrs. W. T. Holton, a
respectable woman, residing: alone on a
ranch in an isolated part of Keya Paha
County, was criminally assaulted and
lynched. The crime is credited to the vigi
lantes of the district, who believed her in
league with cattle rustlers.
Some think the rustlers committed the
crime for revenge on account of .evidence
furnished by the woman against them.
Persons passing the ranch Saturday found
the body and reported the matter to-day.
The Coroner found $60 on the woman's
person, which is regarded as certain evi
dence that the crime was not committed
by tramps, as at first supposed. Her
struggle for life had been a hard one.
The bedding and clothing of the woman
were torn and scattered about the build
ing. Her shoes had evidently been re
moved, probably by herself, preparatory to
going to bed when surprised by the
The woman had evidently been crimin
ally assaulted before she was strung tip,
and everything points toward a premedi
tated plan for the consummation ol the
dastardly deed. No warrants have
yet been made, but a meeting of
the citizens of the neighborhood was held
yesterday and it was decided that prompt
measures should be taken, and it is ex
pected that another and possibly several
hangings will take place before long.
Several persons are under suspicion, and
the parties will be taken and compelled to
The latest report comes that a man
named Hunt is implicated in some way
with the lynchers, and it is thought he can
be forced into a confession.
A number of the alleged rustlers were
recently arrested and taken to Spring
View, where they broke jail and escaped to
the reservation, where they were afterward
recaptured and convicted.
The proximity of the Indian reservation
to the scene of the depredation makes it
possible that a United States Deputy Mar
shal may have to make the arrest 3if war
rants are sworn out.
Robert Hardin Goes to Jail in Default
of Payment.
SANTA ROSA, March 18.— Robert D.
Hardin. brother of Mrs. Elizabeth Bryan,
who was tried here a few months ago for
the murder of her blind sister, Mrs. Nancy
Meagher, was sentenced to pay a $500 fine
by Judge Dougherty to-day. Hardin was
arres"ted for drawing a gun on a man near
Sebastopol in an altercation over the
Meagher estate. He was first charged with
assault with intent to commit murder, but
was afterward allowed to plead guilty to
simple assault.
Hardin could not raise the money and
had to go to jail. He is the administrator
of the blind woman's estate, is an old
soldier and has always borne a good repu
tation. John Meagher, the husband of the
murdered woman, is now in Missouri, hav
ing left here some time ago.
Many Fatalities Attached to the British
Stiip Linlithgowshire.
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., March 18.—
Archibald Anderson, head officer of the
British ship Linlithgowshire, now in port,
to-day was accidently struck by a ballast
basket and knocked down into the hold
and instantly killed.
Within the last three months three
deaths occurred aboard the vessel. Her
captain died when the ship was going into
Valparaiso, and hi% successor just after
leaving that port, while temporarily in
sane, committed suicide by jumping over
board. Just before reaching Cape Flattery
the second officer fell down the hold and
his injuries may prove fatal.

While Boring a Well Natural Illumina
tion la Discovered.
SONOMA, March 18.— A remarkable
flowing artesian and gas well was struck
by well-borers on Captain Boyes' Aqua
Rica ranch near this place. Water with a
temperature of 112 deg. bursts up from the
bowels of the earth at a depth of seventy
Accompanying the flow of hot water are
immense volumes of natural gas in suffi
cient quantities to light a large town. The
discovery is looked upon as being of much
importance to this valley, as an analysis
of the water from the well proves it to be
very valuable for medicinal purposes.
Apricots Partly Killed, but Other Fruits
Are Not Affected.
HANFORD, Cal v March 18.— The dam
age to fruit by the late frosts in this local
ity may be summed up as follows : Royal
apricots generally badly damaged: peach
apricots are partially kilied in some
orchards, while in others they seem to
have escaped entirely; Guerleys and white
royals will probably yield part of a crop.
On the whole a half crop of apricots re
mains. Peaches are very little damaged in
some places. A beneficial trimming is the
result. Nectarines and prunes^ promise a
very heavy crop.
Suicide of a Councilman.
TUCSON, Ariz., March 18.— The remains
of James W. Whaley, who disappeared
from his home a week ago last Saturday,
were found this afternoon under the grand
stand at Union Park, a sporting resort one
mile from town. He had taken morphine,

SANTA ROSA, March 18. — Judge
Dougherty to-day sentenced Ed Doughty,
a youthful horsethief from Healdsburg,
and Harry Quinn, convicted of burglary
committed at Petaluma, to three years
each at the Preston Reform School..
Quinn is a very smart boy and gained
some notoriety here on account of the im
pression that he has been under the hyp
notic influence of a Spaniard named Wil
son, who got him into all his trouble.
A Woman Itrutally Assaulted by a Man
A7ie Knrtr in Ireland.
WOODLAND, March 18.— A crime of a
most revolting character was committed
here last night. The details were kept
quiet to-day until the victim could be pre
vailed upon to prosecute the case and an
arrest made.
The victim is Mrs. Dan Quinn ; she is the
wife of Dan Quinn, who resides near Madi
son, and the family is well known and
highly esteemed. The man who is alleged
to have so brutally and cruelly wronged
her is John ftlatterly, a married man, a
resident of Woodland and employed on
the railroad. He and his victim knew
each other in Iceland when both were chil
dren. Sunday John Quinn and wife came
to town; they dined with Slatterly; later
they met at the Toscana Hotel. Mrs.
Quinn drank a glass of wine. During the
temporary absence of Quinn, Slatterly and
Mrs. Quinn left the house together.
That was the last seen of her until she
was found in a vacant lot, her head bruised,
her clothing torn and she in an uncon
scious condition. Slatterly was afterward
seen, and his face was badly disfigured.
He claimed that he had been in a fight.
Mrs. Quinn was some time in regaining
consciousness; she cried piteously and
begged that the terrible affair be kept from
her husband. Those who knew of the
crime agreed to keep it quiet, but to-day
they determined that the miscreant should
be punished. An officer was sent out to
inform Quinn, a^d as a result he came to
Woodland, and Slatterly was arrested to
night about 8 o'clock.
Recovered year TAvermore.
TRACY. Cal., March 18.— A horse and
cart were stolen last night at Lathrop.
The property was recovered to-day at the
Mountain House, between here and Liver
more, by Constable Byrnes of Tracy. It
had been abandoned by the thief.
Report Made by the Extraor
dinary Grand Jury of
New York.
There Will Be Another Shake
Up in the Corrupt Police
NEW YORK, March IS.— The extraor
dinary Grand^Jury, which has been out
since January 7, reported to-day. Fore
man Leggett handed up thirty-five indict
ments and a presentment censuring the
Police Department. The court adjourned
until 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
The presentment alludes at the outset to
the work of the Lexow Investigating Com
mittee as having spent many months in
collecting evidence, which while ample to
satisfy the public of the existence of cor
ruption fell short in most cases of that
which the law requires to establish guilt.
"In our opinion," the report continues,
"the great body of subordinate officers are
honest and capable men, and their assis
tance in our investigation would doubtless
have proved most valuable had we
been able to demand it, but with
out proper orders, accompanied by honest
and willing suggestions from their supe
riors, no aid of this character was practi
cable. During our entire session no police"
official, high or low, has volunteered one
particle of aid, nor has any evidence what
ever been forthcoming from police officials,
except such as has been drawn from un
willing witnesses."
In conclusion the report says : "The em
ployment by the executive head of the
force of a considerable fortune accumulated
as a result of favors granted in the
performance of his official duty may
well have caused demoralization to
the force under his command. The dis
tinction between such favors and direct
gratuities is not one that his subordinates
are likely to appreciate." : ; ; . c
As soon as it became known Judge In
graham had signed the warrants for the
indicted officials, the corridors of the big
building commenced to till. Criminal
lawyers who have defended police cases
were soon on hand, but professed to have
no business in view, being there simply
through curiosity.
When Judge In graham reached court at
5 o'clock the jam was terrific, but all who
had assembled to hear the names of the in
dicted officials were disappointed, as court
was immediately adjourned until 11
o'clock to-morrow morning. Rumor ran
rife as to who had been indicted. No ,one
in authority would speak.

Jake Kilrain and Steve
O'Donnell Fight for
Eight Rounds.
The Ex -Champion Loudly
Coaches the Big Balti
It Is a Hard-Fought Battle From
the Start to the Very
BOSTON, March 18.-111 the presence of
2000 people at the Suffolk Athletic Club
to-night Jake Kilrain of Baltimore aud
Steve O'Donnell of Australia, Corbett's
sparring partner, fought eight rounds, and
at the close Patsy Shepard, referee, amid
shouts of "Kilrain," declared the contest a
draw. While the referee was making his
mind up John L. Sullivan, who sat just
outside the ropes, close by Kilrain's cor
ner, mounted a chair, and waving his tile,
demanded a decision. When a draw was
announced he sprang into the arena and
rushed toward O'Donnell's corner. Two
of the seconds grabbed him by the arm
and turned him aside. Then he clasped
hands with Kilrain in apparent congratu
lation, and swinging his arms showed the
latter how the fight might have been won.
He was ready, he declared, to challenge
the winner, if th& referee had only named
one. The ex-champion was finally led off
by his friends, and the scene which caused
the wildest excitement ended.
It took Referee Shepard five minutes to
decide what decision to make. Kilrain
had the best of the last round, and at
times it looked as if he was going to put
O'Donnell out. He had not the force, how
ever, but his old-time pluck asserted itself,
and with wild rushes he dazed the
Australian boy, who had been smiling
confidently for seven rounds, and had
landed at will upon the face of the Balti
morean. O'Donnell was the. cleverer in
the leads. In the first round he floored
Kilrain, and in the second he also had him
to the floor, but his blows seemed to lack
force. Kilrain did some very effective
work with his right.
O'Donnell has gained nothing in repu
tation by his work to-night, while the
stock of Kilrain was rated high. Both
men entered the rine at 9:35 o'clock. Kil
rain was fat and clumsy and weighed in
at 220 pounds. It was apparent that he
had little training, while O'Donnell was
in excellent trim, and tipped the scales at
173 pounds. With O'Donnell were Ike
Weir, James McKay and Billy Delaney.
Kilrain was seconded by Jim McCarthy,
Jim Phelan and E. Gebhart. The rounds
were as follows :
Bound I— O'Donnell was the aggressor and
led with his left, which was cleverly stopped
by Kilrain. O'Donnell then with his right
landed on Kilrain's stomach, following with a
left 6wing for Kilrain's jugular. Kilrain led
with his left, missed, and a punch sent him to
liis knees. Kilrain, on rising, Was forced to his
corner, where rapid blows were exchanged.
Round 2— A punch on Kilrain's nose brought
blood. Kilrain rallied, and with a right
hander on O'Donnell's neck nearly threw him
off his feet. O'Donnell, with a rush, pushed
Kilrain suddenly and he fell. Kilrain caught
O'Donnell in the face, but received two straight
punches in the face. O'Donnell followed with
half a dozen slaps on Kilrain's mouth. At the
close Kilrain was breathing heavily.
Round 3— O'Donnell landed at will upon Kfl
rain's mouth and utrtil near the close, when
Kilrain swung his left and met O'DonnelPs
jaw sharply.
Round 4— Kilrain was again on the defensive.
He was lighting against great odds and re
ceived great punishment in the face and ribs.
In the last minute of the round, Kilrain obey
ing- instructions of John L., which were heard
all over the hall, forced the Australian boy to
the ropes and punched for the wind with ef
Round s— O'Donnell clinched, rushed and
got punched in the wind. Counter-blows were
exchanged and in a break Kilrain got in his
left twice aud O'Donnell planted two stingers
upon Kilrain's nose.
Round 6— Kilrain landed his right with ef
fect and got in a swinging right on O'Douneli's
ear. O'Donnell came back with two straight
rights upon the face. Kilrain clinched to save
himself and got in two right-handers on O'Don
nell's ribs.
Round 7— O'Donnell was forced to the ropes
with a stout right-hander from Kilrain. O'Don
nell got in a left swing with his right for a
knockout, but Kilrain sparred and clinched.
O'Donnell then landed five times on Kilrain's
face and Kilrain was decidedly groggy. Kil
raiu was weak and in dodging received severe
punishment. As Kilrain staggered Sullivan
rose and shouted to Kilrain to let out his right
and left straight. Kilrain obeyed and forced
O'Donnell by main strength to his corner.
Round B.— This was Kilrain's round from start
to finish. With bulldog tenacity and the
thought that his reputation hung on the bal
ance he rushed at O'Donnell like a bull, a.nd
surprised his antagonist by forcing him all
about the ring and landed a dozen punches on
his neck and face. Twice he had O'Donnell at
his mercy, but lacked the strength to place a
telling blow. O'Donnell was dazed as the spec
tators shouted to Kilrain to put him out, but
the latter could not respond. The round
closed with honors for Kilrain.
In the preliminary bouts Billy Hill of
Washington, D. C, and Sam Tompkins of
Astoria, N. V., fought at 137 pounds. In

ATLANTA, Ga. f March IS.— Delegates
from a number of counties in the State
met here to-day and organized the Georgia
Cotton-Growers' Association, with State
Senator W. A. Broughton as president.
The following address was adopted.
To the Farmers of Georgia: Realizing the im
portance and necessity for concerted action of
all engaged in the growing of cotton for mutual
protection, we, the Cotton-Growers' Protective
Association, in convention assembled, do
hereby appeal not only to those engaged in
growing cotton, but all interested in it, for
their active co-operation in an effort to better
our condition.
The imports into. Georgia exceed her exports.
Therefore there is an imperative necessity for
reducing our expenses of all kind*, from a ton
of grain to a ball of potash. We would en
courage the establishment of factories of all
kinds, as by that means their employes may
become consumers of our products. The con
traction of the currency may be relieved by a
.system of bartering beUveen the farmer and
merchant. We appeal to you to aid in this
First— By the raising of supplies of every
kind possible to be produced on the farm for
the sustenance of man and beast.
Second— By making the cotton crop a sur
plus crop, intensifying its culture on every
Third— By the use of home-made fertilizers,
and the use of less commercial fertilizers.
In inviting your co-operation, we assure you
there are no fees, dues or charges made for
membership, and no salaried officers, but eac*n
county is left to pursue its own plan of carry
ing out the plans of our organization.

Makes Pure Blood
These three words tell the whole story of
the wonderful cures by Hood's Sarsapa-
rilla. When the blood is impure it is fer-
tile soil for all kinds of disease germs, and
such troubles as scrofula, salt rheum,
rheumatism, catarrh, grip, and typhoid
fever are likely to appear.
Purifies the blood and thus cures these
diseases by removing their cause. No
other preparation has ever accomplished
the remarkable cures which have followed
the use 'of " Hood's Sarsaparilla,' because
Hood's Sarsaparilla is peculiar in combina-
tion, proportion and process.
