A Clergyman Commits Suicide by Hanging Himself in a Shed at Ukiah. FRESNO, Cax., April 7.— The Danes of this city gave a ball last night, and when the festivities were at their height Bitlo Toepfer went to the ballroom, supposedly with the intention of shooting a man whom he says had induced Mrs. Toepfer to leave him. He did not find the man. Drawing a revolver, he said to the by- Etanders, "Do you want to see me do it?" and holding the weapon within a few inche. c of his breast, he fired before any one could interfere. The bullet went through the left lung end out at the shoulder blade. Toepfer dropped to the floor calling for his wife. An examination of the wounds show that they are not necessarily fatal. Toepfer is well off. Some time ago his wife began proceedings for a divorce and this made the husband despondent. BTRAXGE SIGNALS AT MOXTEREY. Maneuvers of Small Craft at >'ight Which Are Suggestive of Smugglers. MONTEREY, Cal., April 7. — Some strange maneuvers of small boats and mysterious lights seen floating around the ■'• bay at night leads to the belief that smug . gling is being carried on extensively in this section under the very eyes of the officials. : Monterey Bay is so located that it would require a regiment of customs officers to • ".•protect it. :. v Some time ago a fisherman by the name ,■■ of Frank Passoni,while on an early morning .'."fishing excursion, discovered something : that is liable to create a sensation in the .. smuggling circles. It was a cold morning, and Passoni wishing to keep his fire in his cook stove blazing raised it over the rail to catch the breeze. In so doing it blazed up in the air several feet. Happening to look •■' toward the snore he perceived a similar : blaze, as though a torch had been waved In the air. His curiosity was aroused and : . ■ he again raised his cook stove and the same result followed. For eight times did he do •this, each time receiving the same answer. If Passoni had not been alone he would • have surely followed up the light, but he did not like to tackle smugglers single- j •- handed. ;. Several Monterey officers have at times watched the coast, but without the aid of the Government not much can be accom plished. At different times boats have . been seen among the various inlets that abound in this section. Last year when the notorious Halcyon landed eighty-three Chinamen in Carmel Bay, Judge Michaelis who had been on the watch, captured nine of the gang. They were put in jail only to be let loose a few months later. This dis gusted many of the local enthusiasts and officers who were trying to suppress smug gling, and now there are no watches out. The recent suspicious maneuvers will prob ably be looked into. _ • HEALDSBURG ICE PI4AT, A Factory and Cold-Storage Warehouse to Be Built. HEALDSBURG, Cal., April 7.— A. "W.

Price was an unsuccessful candi date for Superintendent of Schools of this county at the late election, and he felt his defeat so keenly that he became mentally deranged. He was committed to the asylum, and after remaining in that insti tution some weeKs was discharged as cured. Last week he petitioned the Supervisors to be appointed on the Board of Education. The petition was refused, and the result was suicide. i'rice was formerly professor of Greek aud Latin in an Eastern college, and for years occupied a similar position in Santa Kosa College. He was an eloquent preacher and highly respected. He leaves a widow an i live children. THIXK IT WAS Hit AD T. A Stranger at Ukiah tTho Reaemblea the Slayer of Sheriff Jioyard. T'KIAH, Cal., April 7. — A stranger ar rived in this city last evening bearing every outward resemblance to John Brady, the murderer of Sheriff Bogard. He begged a nieal at Wilson's restaurant, and left town as Fii'ldenly as he appeared. It is stated that he had walked up from San Francisco, but two fishermen saw him descending the range between here and Lake County, a natural but unfrequented route from the Sacramento Valley. As he left town he was headed toward the «oast. THE NEWS OF SAN JOSE. Capture of Two Boys Who Ran Away From Santa Cruz to Oakland. Review of the Fruit Outlook In the Santa Clara Valley and Review of Markets. SAN JOSE, Cal., April 7.— John Sher man and George Dennis, two runaway boys from Santa Cruz, were taken home by Sheriff Besse to-day. Dennis stole $12 from his brother and the bo 3's took a trip to Oakland. After their money was spent the boys started to walk home, and had got as far as Berryessa, where they had taken refuge in a barn for the night, when ar rested. THE TRUIT OUTLOOK. Apricots Will Be Only Half a Crop and Prunes May Fall Short. SAN JOSE, Cal., April 7.— Colonel Philo Hersey, president of the Santa Clara County Fruit Exchange, in an interview on the outlook of the fruit crop, says: "There is little speculation on the part of Eastern buyers, who continue to send in orders from day to day as the goods are needed. It is impossible to tell even ap proximately how much of last year's ship ment of fruit is now unsold in the East. The parties who hold the fruit there refuse to state the amount, though it is not very large, as they continue to order from day to day through their California agents. Trade is quite uniform. The stocks held in the East are going into the retailers' bands regularly and freely. Prices are not high and there seems to be no buoyancy of feeling among producers and dealers of an increase in prices. The fruit market is one in which the bears have the best of it. There is 140 cars of last- year's fruit re maining in the valley, the bulk of which is prunes. The amount of fruit remaining in the valley is about the same as that of last year at this time, while in the East the stock on hand is less than that held at this time last year. "I should advise those having on hand a stock of apricots in good selling condition not to sell at present, but to hold it over until next year. The severe frost that vis ited this vicinity and Vacaville some weeks ago, together with the frost of April 4, will reduce the crop of apricots one-half that of 1894. Peaches, cherries and pears are slightly injured by the freeze of April 4, while the damage to prunes cannot be estimated, as the effects of the cold will not be manifested until the middle of June. The half-grown prune, if the pit has been injured, withers and falls, al though the greater proportion of prunes injured at this stage will turn yellow and drop off when the size of grains of wheat. If there be no more frosts or freezes and no continued cold spells between now and May 15 we may expect a fair crop of prunes and peaches, and possibly an average crop of cherries. Last week the exchange shipped five cars of prunes and two cars of apricots East." A WOMAy KII>SAVS HER CHTLI>. The Sequel to an Estrangement JDue to Religion* Disagreement. SAN JOSE, April 7.— Mrs. James Clear water, who came to this city from Los An geles recently, took her 9-year-old daugh ter, Perley, this afternoon from the pos session of Mrs. L. Vincent, who was given charge of the child by the father. The police were appealed to to secure the return of the child, but they refused to in terfere in the matter. The Clearwaters are not divorced, but separated last May. For three years there has been trouble in the family over re ligion. Clearwater claims that his wife, after be coming a Seventh-day Adventist, left him. An elder and preacher in the church named Raunders, it is claimed, told her it was a sin to live with her husband, because he was not a believer, and after that she was much in the company of Saunders. Last May, after a camp meeting excite ment at Oakland, Mrs. Saunders left her husband and went to Los Angeles. She was not heard from again till she arrived in San Jose a few days ago and to-day she kidnaped her little girl. The couple had six children and lived together eighteen years till they had the trouble over re ligion. Paying the Militiamen. SAN JOSE, Cal., April 7.-Payraaster- General Colonel F. P. Chadbourne of the Governor's staff paid the members of Com pany B, N. G. C, last evening for their ser vices during the strike. The Second Bri gade received $7000 for its services, or over one-half of the appropriation made by the Legislature. The captain of Company B received $90, and the privates, numbering sixty-eight, $36 apiece. Colonel Chadbourne and his staff will go to Santa Cruz to-morrow to make arrange ments for the camp of the Second Brigade there in June. Incendiary Suspect* to R t Relented. OMAHA, Nebr., April 7 Priest Kar minski and the twelve members of his con gregation, who have been on trial two days for burning St. Paul's Church, will be re leased to-morrow and the case dismissed. The County Attorney has determined that the evidence is not sufficient to convict. SAN FRANCISCO, MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 8, 1895. SAN DIEGO EVENTS. An English Prisoner at Ensenada Appeals for Aid. BRITISH CONSUL'S VIEW. He Does Not Think That His Government Can Intervene in the Matter. THE LAW MUST TAKE ITS COURSE. A Request May Be Made Asking Mexican Officials to Grant as Speedy a Trial as Possible. SAN T DIEGO, Cal., April 7.— lt was learned to-day that considerable cabling had been done in the case of Seymour Jackson, cashier of Godbe & Co.'s Bank at Ensenada, who was arrested some days ago and charged with the robbery of $3000 from the bank on March 20. The same night a $13,000 gold brick was stolen from M. Riveroll's office, a few blocks distant. Jackson is a British citizen, and, upon learning of his arrest, the British Vice- Consul of this city, Major Allen, wired to learn the charge against him, the amount of bail required, and also requesting that the accused be speedily admitted to trial. No answer was received from the first dis patch, which was sent to Godbe, the Ameri can Consul at Ensenada. Another was sent, and Godbe advised that application be made to the authorities direct. This was done, but no reply was received. Then, it is understood, Major Allen notified his Government of the case. Several cables were received, but their tenor could not be learned. Mr. Allen, when questioned regarding the matter, said he did not think the Brit ish Government would take any steps in the affair, as Jackson is simply being held for examination and there was nothing to show that he was not receiving fair treat ment. Jackson, the Consul said, com plained that he was being held in an un healthy jail, without the privilege of bail. Major Allen held that bail should be ac corded, but he was not familiar with Mexi can law, and if the law did not class the charge against Jackson as bailable, he did not see how assistance could be given. No special stress could be laid upon the un healthfulnefes of the jail, as that matter rested entirely with the Mexican authori ties, and the only thing that could be done would be to ask for as speedy a trial as pos sible. This, added the Consul, would be beyond doubt the voluntary course of the authorities. Pratt and Garratt, charged with the rob bery of a gold bar, are no longer held in solitary confinement, but are allowed to converse with friends, though still pris oners. Investigation into the case con tinues with considerable vigor, but if the gold or evidence to convict has been found the fact is carefully guarded. WATCHING THE WAHLBERG. Mexican Authorities Suspect That the Schooner Is Up to Mischief. SAN DIEGO, Cal., April 7.— News has been received from passeneers on the steamer Pacheco, arriving from Lower California, that the schooner H. C. Wahl berg, held for some weeks here for sus pected carrying of contraband war ma terial to Hawaiian rebels, has been seen hovering off Cape Colnett and that Cap tain Matthew Martin and his crew have been ashore several times. After the schooner was liberated she cleared for the lower coast on a guano ex pedition, but Charles Hartwick, one of the crew, said no attempt was made to get guano and the skipper was in no hurry to find any. He intimated to a friend that the schooner was in the more profitable business of smuggling contraband goods into Mexican territory. It is believed here that the schooner may be making Colnett headquarters for ship ping another cargo of arms for Hawaii, and it is known that freight shipments to Lower California are narrowly watched. The Wahlberg is not expected to return here, and it is believed she will make a run to British Columbia to change her flag. The Mexican authorities suspected the Wahlberg from the first, and a clone watch is being kept on her movements to detect smuggling operations. MARE ISLAND INQUIRY. Secret Sessions of the Board InvestlgatingtheTroubleon the Albatross. A Thorough Examination Will Be Made and Civilians Are to Be Called on to Testify. VALLEJO, Cal., April 7.— The court of inquiry appointed to examine into the dif ferences that have occurred between Lieu tenant-.Commander Franklin J. Drake, commander of the Albatross, and Lieuten ant Fidelio S. Carter, the executive officer of that vessel, will probably be in session for a month yet. The court convened on Thursday with Commander C. M. Thomas as president, Lieutenant-Commander F. M.-Symonds and Lieutenant W. E. Sewell as members and Lieutenant B. 0. Scott as judge advocate. The court's proceedings are behind closed doors. The inquiry will be most exhaustive, and will even embrace the summoning of civilians residing in Vallejo. Commander Drake is one of the most popular officers in the navy. The cause of the disagreement has not been made public. The board adjourned Satur day until 12 o'clock noon of Monday. It is not expected that the Albatross will leave the yard for some weeks to come. The court of inquiry that has been in session examining into the accident to one of the Monterey's boilers, with a view to ascertaining where the blame rests, has concluded its work and forwarded its re port to the Secretary of the Navy. The Monterey left rather unexpectedly for Callao, as it had been expected she would remain here for some time. The re port of the board of inspection was to the effect, however, that the Monterey was in good order and fit in all respects for an ex tended cruise, and receipt of this report was followed by orders from the Navy De partment to send the vessel to Peru. It is not expected by the Secretary of the Navy that the Monterey will leave the coast, yet contingencies may arise by the time she reaches Callao so that orders may be sent to her commander, Captain Francis J. Higginson, to proceed to New York via the Straits of Magellan. This would give ample opportunity to test the vessel's sea going qualities. The Olympia, on her return from Santa Barbara, where she has gone to remain during the flower festival, and incidentally to have various tests made of her steaming capacities and battery qualities, may be ordered to Honolulu to relieve the Phila delphia, and the flag of Admiral Beardsley may be hoisted at her peak. William O'Meara, the well-known mail carrier at the Naval Hospital during the past eight months, will leave for Washing ton Monday to obtain his discharge. He expects to assume duty in the customs Bervice. Lieutenant Thomas Snowden, detached from the Monterey, is on temporary duty on the Bennington. Lieutenant Waldemar D.Rose, first watch officer on the Olympia, who has been quite sick during the past three weeks, reported for duty Saturday. Past Assistant Engineer Emil Theiss, detached from the Monterey, is still at the hospital under treatment for injuries re ceived when the feed-pipe burst in the monitor's boiler-room. Lieutenant John E. Gann has been granted a three months' leave of absence. Pay Inspector W. W. Woodhull, who has but recently passed a successful ex amination from the grade of paymaster to the above rank and title, will not came out to the navy-yard to assume duty as gen eral storekeeper before the Ist of May. Lieutenant Frederick Singer, who is to come out from Washington to do duty on the coast, was here some years ago as ex ecutive of the Independence. THE CUPICA AT ASTORIA Arrival of the Overdue British Vessel and Joy of the Cap- tain's Friends. The Ship Was Out Two Hundred and One Days and Had a Rough Experience. ASTORIA, Ob., April 7.— The long over due British ship Cupica, with tin from Liverpool for Astoria, arrived in at 1 o'clock this afternoon after a voyage of 201 days. The docKs were lined with peo ple, and no sooner had the Cupica dropped anchor than a score of Captain Casson's friends climbed over the side of the vessel and congratulated him upon his safe ar rival. Captain Casion state. £bftt the ressel was delayed by storms that drove her out of her course, and by calms which lasted for days at a time. In the vicinity of Cape Horn 500 cases of tin were jettisoned and more would have followed had they not been compelled to batten down the hatches. Two sailors were injured by being thrown against the bulwarks during n storm. Captain Casaon says that when only two days out from Liverpool he feared he would never reach his destina tion. The arrival of the Cupica has placed the canneries at some inconvenience, as they, with one or two exceptions, had given the vessel up for lost and had duplicated their orders with American tin plate. The Cupica has 28,000 cases of tin on board. RICKARD'S SILVER FIGHT Montana's Governor to Call the Pacific States Executives to a Conference. An Organized Effort to Be Made to Advance the Interests of White Metal. HELENA, Mont., April 7.— Governor Rickards has inaugurated an educational campaign on the silver question, in line with plans formulated by himself and Hon. Thomas G. Merrill. The intention is to place bimetallic literature in the hands of the voters throughout the Union, this course being deemed more effective than any other plan of reaching the intellect and conscience of the citizens. The Governor has arranged for a confer ence to perfect an organization which will be held at Salt Lake City May 15. He has sent a letter to the Governors of California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Wy oming, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado asking them to appoint three delegates to the Salt Lake conference. Alabama' a Silver Party. BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 7.— A silver party is the latest acquisition to political affairs in Alabama. In Athens, Living ston County, 400 Democrats, Republicans and Populists met and banded themselves together in favor of the free coinage of sil ver without any regard for party ties, and to support for office only such men as favor their views. THE IXCOME-TAX APPEALS. Conference of the Supreme CourUJuatieea to Conaider the Matter. NEW YORK, N. V., April 7.— A special to the World from Washington says: An extraordinary conference of the Justices of the United States Supreme Court was held to-day to consider the income-tax appeals. Chief Justice Fuller's rough draft was further discussed and the decision is re ported to have been reopened for argu ment on certain features. This has given rise to the impression that the deadlock on the main points in the statute may be broken or the decision withheld for addi tional modifications. Santa Ana* nagger. CINCINNATI, Ohio, April 7.- Hon. John A. Caldwell, Mayor of this city, has re ceived by express from A. J. Houston of Texas, the son of the late celebrated Gen eral Sam Houston, the dagger which was taken from General Santa Ana when he was captured by Sam Houston at the battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836. This gift is to be presented to some museum in Cincinnati. STILL IN SACRAMENTO Belief That the Slayer of Bogard Has Not Escaped. CAR-SEALER'S DISCOVERT Finds an Armed Man In a Car Who Answers Bandit Bra dy's Description. SEARCHING THE CAPITAL CITY. Officers Are Hunting for the Stran ger With the Revolvers Who Has Again Disappeared. USACRAMENTO, Cal., April 7.— The murderer of Sheriff Bogard made another abortive attempt to escape from Sacra mento yesterday afternoon, but was foiled in his design by the vigilance of a car-sealer in the upper railroad yard. Shortly after the arrival of the overland freight train that arrives in Socramento at 4 p. m., coming by way of Lodi, one of the car sealers, whose duty it is to inspect the doors and seals of the various freight cars, noticed that the tin seal of one of the cars was broken. He immediately threw open the door and as he did so he was con fronted by a heavily built man, about 5 feet 6 inches in height, who sprang from the interior of the car to the ground and with a muttered explanation that he had been locked in the car alone by mistake, walked rapidly in the direction of Twelfth street. As soon as the astonished car-sealer could recover his presence of mind, he gave the alarm, but before the detectives' and Sheriff's offices could be notified, all traces of the individual was lost. The man was dressed in blue overalls, light coat, small black derby hat and had a cartridge-belt filled with shells around his waist, with two larger revolvers thrust be tween the belt and his person. It is now believed by local officers that the clew re ceived by Sheriff Griffin of Yolo County yesterday stating that Sheriff Bogard's murderer would endeavor to leave this locality by way of Davisville, was given for the purpose of drawing their attention in that direction, while the real offender es caped over the mountains. Another theory which has been ad vanced is that the man made his way at night over the county road on his bicycle to a lone station where he abandoned his vehicle, broke the seal on the car door, and secreted himself in the interior, thinking in this way to pass through Sacramento without detection. Conßidef&bfp excite ment exists in the city over the discovery, and the officers are putting forth every en deavor to obtain trace of him, but owing o their silence upon the subj ect it is im possible to ascertain what success they are meeting with. In the meantime every portion of the city is being searched. [GRAND ARMY EJSCAIUPMENT. Arranging the Programme of Entertain- ment at the Capital. SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 7.— The local Grand Army posts are busily en gaged in preparing for the department encampment to meet in this city on the 22d of this month. Meetings were held to-day and the local programme mapped out. It is expected there will be 1000 Grand Army men here. Besides the encamp ment there will be meetings of the Ladies of the Grand Army, the Women's Relief Corps and Sons of Veterans. Of these there will probably be 500 representatives of the Relief Corps, 300 Ladies of the Grand Army and 200 Sons of Veterans. The session will be held in the Capitol on the 22d, 23d, 24th and 25th. A commit tee is securing subscriptions to help carry out the grogramme in a manner befitting the city's reputation for hospitality. General L. Tozer has been selected grand marshal and O. P. Dodge chief aid. It has been decided that Sacramento shall pre sent a candidate for department com mander. Pushing an Electric- Power Scheme. SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 4.— lt is the purpose of the Sacramento Electric Light and Power Company to push the work of bringing its electricity from Folsom to this city with all possible speed. The company has put in a large arc-light dynamo there, by the aid of which work on the power house will be continued at night until completed. — MURDERER'S FIERCE FIGHT A Jacksonville Desperado Fires on the Police and Kills One of Them. He Surrenders Only After He Has Wounded Three More of His Pursuers. JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 7.—Alex ander Simms, alias Britt Glenn, alias Jim Charlie, a negro, shot and killed a young colored boy named Napoleon Stucks Satur day night. The officers chased him about two miles to a barn in the eastern part of the city. When Simms saw he was discovered he opened fire with a pistol at the officers, who returned the fire. During the firing Policeman Minor was shot in the breast and killed almost instantly. Lieutenant Minor, his brother, was shot in the left leg. Two negroes who had joined in chasing Simms were shot in the hip, one fatally it is thought. Simms offered to give himself up if the lieutenant would consent not to kill him. This was agreed to and he gave up his re revolver and came down. A large crowd gathered on the outside and wanted to lynch him at once, but the officer hustled his prisoner off to jail. As soon as the affair became noised about a large crowd congregated at the jail and threats of lynching were frequent. Finally it was announced that Simms would be taken to the county jail for safe-keeping, but in stead the Sheriff put him aboard a train for St. Augustine, where he was placed in jail. MISS WICKES AN ACTRESS. The Daughter of a Pullman Vice-Prcs- ident Makea Her Debut. MEMPHIS, Tenn\, April 7.— Miss Flor ence Lillian Wickes, youngest daughter of the vice-president of the Pullman Palace Car Company of Chicago, made her debut on the professional stage last evening at the Lyceum Theater, appearing in "The Sign of the Cross" with the company of Wilson Barrett. "I can see nothing in connection with this move of Miss Wickes which should particularly interest the public," said Mr. Barrett this afternoon. "It came about solely through the instrumentality of the late theatrical manager, John W. Norton, who was my friend, and who was killed in a disastrous railroad wreck some weeks ago. He had requested me to give certain proteges of his trials and Miss Wickes was among the number. . "I had occasion thereupon to judge of her talent, and found her to possess un mistakable ability as an actress, and I am glad to name her with my company. She has great talent and I have no doubt as to her future brilliant success as an actress. At present, of course, she plays only the junior parts." SCORES CARDINAL GIBBONS A Pittsburg Preacher's Bitter Attack on the Catholic Prelate. He Denounces the Cardinal for His Remarks Concerning the Mob at Savannah. PITTSBURG, Pa.. April 7.— Rev. J. T. McCrary, pastor of. the Third U. P. Church, to-day delivered a scathing attack on Car dinal Gibbons and his supposed jastifica tion of the mob in Savannah. Rev. Mr. McCrary is a man of extreme views and is a supporter of the blue laws. He was president of the Law and Order Society and directs the war against the Sunday papers. He quoted from the remarks of Cardinal Gibbons on the work of the mob and then said : "The Cardinal protests earnestly against his church being held responsible for the Spanish inquisition, yet we submit that it was more out of harmony with the senti ment of the sixteenth century than the conduct of the mob with the closing years of the nineteenth. "He excuses and encourages violence. When the head of the church speaks of an offense as serious as the riot at Savannah anything short of the sternest, most un equivocal condemnation of it will be en couragement. He put Christianity to shame before the world. He claims to represent the largest body of Christians in the world, and yet has only soft words for men who would have murdered if they had not "been restraint by bayonets. "The Cardinal does not represent Chris tianity. He is speaking for a system that cannot bear the light, and he would en courage the suppression of truth though that require the silencing forever of the clearest voices that ever rung out on this western world." BANK-ROBBERS' TRIAL. The Griswold (lotca) Suspects to Appear in United States Courts. COUNCIL BLUFFS, lowa, April 7.— The Griswold bank-robbers will be tried by the United States court on the charge of steal ing $600 in stamps. It has been suspected for some time that the Government would ultimately try the two men now in cus tody, for its case is much stronger than the charge preferred against them in the State courts of assaulting Deputy Sheriff Nick O'Brien. There has been some uncertainty as to who fired the shots, but there is not the slightest uncertainty of all three of the men being concerned in the robbery of the bank. Smith and "Wilson were brought into the courtroom yesterday afternoon to be ar raigned. Their best friends would hardly have known them as they sat with their wrists bound together with handcuffs. Each man had let bis beard grow. If Judge Woolson can find any way of com pelling them to shave their beards but lit tle doubt of their conviction is felt, but if the witnesses are compelled to swear that these grizzly veterans are the same sleek, smooth looking fellows they saw six weeks ago there is quite a possibility of their get ting free. Both men in custody have claimed all along that they never saw one another until arrested. They will be tried this month. THE STORM IN COLORADO. Many Trains Are Blockaded and There Is Much Loss of Livestock. DENVER, Colo, April 7.— Not a train has arrived in Denver from the East to-day and all roads traversing the eastern por tion of the State are still impassable as a result of the great storm of Friday. To day has been warm and clear, melting all the snow remaining on the ground and the delay to trains now comes from sand on the tracks. Every cut is rilled, sometimes to the depth of from four to eight feet. Shovels and rotary plows are the only im plements that can make any impression on the obstruction. A dispatch from Falcon reports that the rotary plow in clearing out a cut near there unearthed the body of a man buried in the sand on the track, probably having frozen to death. He has been identified as a herder from McLean's sheep ranch. The loss to livestock will be great, but no estimate can be made to-day. FLIGHT OF TRAIX-ROBBERS. The Desperadoes Fire the Prairie Grass to Obliterate Their Trail. WICHITA, Kass., April 7.— The Rock Island train-robbers are now in the Gloss Mountains region and have set the prairie on fire behind them in order to baffle their pursuers. There being a north wind the fire has covered an immense area and the marshal's posse cannot advance. Debs Returns to Terre Haute. TERRE HAUTE, Ind., April 7.—Presi dent Debs of the American Railway Union returned from the Pacific Coast after a speech-making trip which began in Chi cago February 28 and closed at Los Ang eles, Cal., a week ago to-night. He says the union has been reorganized through out that territory. In seven days on the westward trip Debs took 2200 members into the union in the West. PRICE FIVE CENTS. SURVEY AT STOCKTON. Valley Road Engineers Will Begin the Work To-Day. HOW LINES WILL BE RUN, Chief Engineer Storey Will Outline the Piansfor His Assistants. i SELECTION OF THE BEST ROUTE. Subscriptions From the Working Classes and Farmers Are Be ginning: to Come In. STOCKTOX, Cal., April 7.— The survey ing party of the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railway arrived by steamer this morning. There are twelve men in the party under the direction of Assistant Engineer John A. Graham. Mr. Graham owns a large ranch in this county, near Woodbridge, and spent, most of the day there. When seen to-night he said that Chief Engineer Storey would be here to-morrow to personally direct some of the work of lay ; ng the lines for the road. To-morrow morning the first work will be commenced on the point of land be tween Stockton and Mormon Channel, when the lines will be run on Weber ave nue and thence around to Tule street. The surveys in the city will take at least a week and a half to complete and then the lines will be run from the city limits to the Stanislaus River. Engineer Graham said that it had not been definitely settled at just what point on the river and through what lands the surveys would be made, as the question of bridging the Stanislaus would cut a figure, and this point had not been decided upon, Engineer Storey while here will collect the necessary information to determine just where the lines will be run after leaving Stockton. Graham stated that preliminary lines out of the city would be run at once, but that they might be changed if a better route is suggested to the management of the roads.

Medical Discov- ery" ,of Dr. Pierce. Years ago Dr. R. V. Pierce, now chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Ho- tel and Surgical Institute ■of < Buffalo, N. Y., recognizing the fact that consump- tion was essentially a germ disease, and that a • remedy which would drive the germs and their poisons from the blood would cure consumption, at last found a medicine which cured 98 per cent, of all cases, if taken in the earlier stages. The tissues of the lungs being irritated by the germs and poisons in the blood circulating through them, the germs find lodgment there, and the lungs begin to break down. J Soon the general health begins to fail, and the person feels lan- guid, weak, faint, drowsy and confused. This is the time to take Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery; it drives the germs and poisons from the blood, and has a soothing effect upon the dry cough. "Golden Medical Discovery" increases the amount and quality of the blood, thus invigorating and r fortifying the system against disease and builds up flesh. Jno. -.M.
