A Woman in Sacramento
Killed by a Brutal

SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 12.— Neri
■••, Germenia, the little Portugese woman who
• Called at the police station a week ago and
•..reported to the sergeant in charge that she
• had been beaten by Manuel G. Dandried,
'. in whose service she was employed, died
•' '..last night.
"' The woman's story, as related to the
• authorities through the aid of an inter-
. -preter, was both sad and unusual. She
' said that two years ago Dandried per
'-.' suaded her to leave her native home in
• .sunny Portugal, and offered what seemed
to her fabulous wages to come to Cali
fornia and act as his servant. She gladly
; accepted his offer, and came only to find
herself in a position of veritable slavery.
;•.'•;• Since her arrival Dandried has fre
'•' quently beaten her. The cause of the last
./'.'beating she received was a trivial one. A
.few small turkeys had disappeared and
?Dandried accused his nepnew, a boy of
..tender years, of having killed them, and
proceeded to chastise him unmercifully.
The woman interfered in the lad's behalf
and was knocked down and repeatedly
kicked, despite her being in delicate health
at the time.
From the effects of this assault the
woman was taken sick and a physician
was called in. He found upon examina
tion that it would be necessary, in order to
cave the woman's life, to perform an ope
ration. This was done successfully.'
The woman afterward complained of
great pain in her side and declared that
' : the bandages were too tight. Dandried,
without notifying the physician in charge;
' cut the retaining bands with . a pair of
scissors. Internal hemorrhage ensued and
the woman died. .'-i,' M

Another Day Consumed in the Taking of
Evidence Against Professor Sanders.
FRESNO, Cal., April 12.— Several jurors
in the Sanders forgery case complained to
day of feeling ill, and asked that the at
torneys bring the trial to a conclusion as
soon as possible.
The county has been at a very heavy ex
pense in the investigation of the Wootton
case, and it was manifestly impossible to
cut short the testimony on either side with
out, prejudice to the interest of justice on
both sides. Judge Webb rescinded the
order committing the jury to the custody
of the Sheriff, and permitted the jurors to
so home each evening, with a caution not
to talk about the case or read the news
The testimony to-day bore almost ex
clusively on the book from which . the
forged draft is presumed to have been torn,
and the evidence of grand jurors and
others was submitted to show .that when
they examined it there were forty-nine
unto'rn leaves and one stub. Ex-District
Attorney Church testifiei that since then
he had permitted counsel for the defense
to remove six or seven of the leaves for
the purpose of examination and that a
writing had been given to that effect. The
prosecution will close its testimony to
morrow morning.

LOS ANGELES, Cal., April 12.—
announcement that the Southern Pacific
had withdrawn from sale tickets for St.
Paul and . Minnesota points via El Paso,
Fort Worth and Kansas City and also by
the northern route via Ogden and Kansas
City, turns out to be only partially correct.
The southern gateway to extreme northern
points is still open, but no more tickets are
being offered via Ogden and Kansas City.
While the Southern Pacific Company offers
no official reason for the action taken it
is supposed to be simply on the score of

Culmination of a Struggle
Which Began With the

Depositors In the Suspended Loan
and Savings Bank to Be
, Paid In Full.
FRESNO, Cal., April 12.— The Fresno
Loan and Savings Bank suspended business
this morning. A notice on the door says:
Depositors will be paid in full, but our in
ability to realize on securities makes it impos
sible to meet demands.
From Vice-President E. F. Bernard, who
became connected with the management
in August, 1894, it is learned that the fail
ure is aue to accumulating interest on real
estate mortgages and the inability to make
other collections due. . The struggle began
in the panic of 1893, and they were forced
to close their doors in June, 1894, for > a day
or so, but continued business.
There is due depositors $412,478, about
equally divided between the commercial
and savings depositors. Their total assets
amount to $710,000, which includes notes
and mortgages secured by real estate to
the amount of $454,710; . The bank premises
and other real estate is valued at $175,000,
and the amount of actual cash is $81,000.
Allowing $100,000 for shrinkage in value of
real estate and worthless securities they
still have assets amounting to ; $200,000
more than liabilities. .
The other banks have offered to take
the commercial business off the Loan and
Savings Bank's hands, dividing . equally
between three banks— First National,
Fresno National and Farmer-*.
= There is no probability of a run on any of
the Fresno banks on account of the suspen
sion of the Loan and Savings Bank.. Peo
ple are not excited over it, ; and the assur
ance of the bank officials that depositors
will be paid in full is generally believed,
and there is better feeling than might have
been expected.
. The other ; banks are well prepared to
stand a run. if one should come, and , they
are fe«ling no uneasiness. .; In fact the
bankers of : Fresno > held a meeting to-day
to consider the advisability, of assuming
liability for $200,000 of the debts due by
the closed bank. " •

Valuable Assistance Given the
Project by the Fair Sex

STOCKTON, Cal., April 12.— Plans were
received here to-day from San Francisco
showing the route of the valley road from
Stockton through San Joaquin County to
the Stanislaus River. ' This is the first
authentic information received by the sur
veying party here, and the route mapped
out is not that printed before.
The line, according to the instructions
received to-day, runs parallel with the
Mariposa road southeasterly for several
miles until it strikes an angle in that road
where it crosses a large tract belonging to
Rosenbaum — Crawford of this city. Here
it deflects a trifle and runs in a straight
line. to the southeastern corner of the
county, where Jacob Meyer has a large
The road passes through some very valu
able farming land, but the owners of all
the large tracts are in thorough sympathy
with the project, and some have already
made • generous subscriptions, so there is
no doubt that the rights of way to the
Stanislaus River can be easily obtained.
Among those through whose land the
road will pass are: G. S. Ladd, S. A.
French, Rosenbaum & Crawford, F. G.
Galglani, Mrs." A. Muenter, J. , K. Doak,
Andrew Wolf, J. V. Mondon, A. McNeil

or six miles southeast of Burnett, a station ;
on 'the line of the Oakdale branch* of the
Southern Pacific road, between Stockton
and Merced. This would indicate that the
road will not run to Modesto, which was
intimated by Engineer Storey when here.
He stated then that it might not go to
that point, but to some place midway be
tween Modesto and Oakdale. '• ■;* '- - v -; : V '

tion .to help the fund they are raising for
the road. . The Stockton Athletic Club has
taken hold of the project, and will hold its
field day exercises in conjunction with the
picnic, so the affair will probably, net con
siderable money, and Stockton will take a
half holiday on that afternoon.
To-morrow all the schoolgirls in the city
will go out among the homes to solicit
subscriptions for the fund being raised by

anything to the fund. They will be waited
upon and asked to give their proportion of.
the amount to be raised, which has now
very nearly reached the required sum.

felony and embezzlement, of- the five
Chinamen who were captured on the Ore

directors unanimously agreed to divide the

Bandit Brady's Double' Found
to Be an Inoffensive
Nevada County Detectives Pursue a
Man Thought to Be Bogard's'
SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 12— On the
arrival of the freight train known in rail
road men parlance as No. 6, which reaches
this city at 2 o'clock a. m a large force of
detectives, police and yardmen were. on
hand. They immediately surrounded the
train and instituted a search for the sup
posed murderer of Sheriff Bogard, they
having been notified by. telegraph that he
had boarded the train at Colfax and was
afterward seen in Rocklin.
As the long line of freightcars came to a
standstill, the .engineer, having been sig
naled to stop a few blocks from the depot,
the assembled forces closed in on all sides,
and Policeman Douglas, discovering a man
seated on the bumpers between the two
head cars, made a* rush for him. The
man at once sprang to the ground on the
opposite side of the train, at the same time
making a motion as though to draw a
weapon. The officer compelled the man
to throw up his hands.
■ By this time' Detective Ahem arrived at
'the side of -the supposed desperado, and
while Policeman Douglas kept him cov
ered • with i his • revolver - Ahem - searched
him, the rest of the' force with drawn
revolvers standing guard. : •■■ i - : - '•--
They were chagrined to find that their
captive was an inoffensive ' Swede, who
aid not possess an extensive command of
tho Anglo-Saxon tongue and was nearly
frightened to death. In general appear
ance he bore a resemblance to Brady, but
his meek demeanor would have touched
even that notorious outlaw with pity.
.Word was received to-day from the de
tectives' in Nevada County that the man
they were after had been seen in the neigh
borhood of Columbian Hill, and that they
were close , upon his track. j They claim
that they will capture him without doubt.
They are not positive that he will prove
to be Brady, but say, that several who have
encountered the fugitive recognize him as
the man wanted, by aid of the photos in
the possession of the pursuing force. He
is traveling on foot and through a country
which is almost impassable. V Vy.h

SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 12.— There
is a sweeping retrenchment to be made on
the part of the Southern Pacific Company
on the first of the coming month, that will

Paul Schulze Ends His
Life With a Pistol
He Felt Too Keenly His Re
moval From an Honored
The Deceased Had Endeared Him
self to Many by His Generous
TACOMA, Wash., April 12.—Disheart
ened by financial difficulties and his re
moval from an honored position, Paul
Schulze, general land agent of the ' North
ern Pacific Railroad, killed himself this
morning at 11:30 o'clock by sending a 38
--caliber bullet through his head. The body
was not found until 3:45 p. _„ and it was
nearly 5 before the Coroner was notified.
The news became public after 6 o'clock
and greatly surprised the entire city.
Mr. Schulz* was one of the best known
men in the Northwest. A German by
birth, he entered the Northern Pacific ser
vice under Henry Villard. and nearly ten
years ago was made general land agent at
the west end of the road.
During the last year or so his policy had
not been approved by the Northern Pa
cific management, and frequently it has
been rumored that he would be removed.
Last Wednesday he announced that he
had resigned at the request of Land Com
missioner Phipps. He did "not seem to
feel badly about the matter then, but it is
certain that he felt keenly that the re
moval showed a lack of appreciation of his
' Schulze was , president of the Yakima
Investment Company, owner of the Great
Sunnyside canal in Yakima County, with
assets of over $2,000,000, and president of
the Tacoma Railway and Motor Com
pany, owner of two-thirds of the street
railway system here. Both companies are
in receivers' hands, and he was one of
the receivers of the former company. The
financial difficulties of that company had
caused him much trouble.
Schulze spent but part of Thursday at
his office, though his resignation was not
to take effect until Monday. He went
home at 8 o'clock and ate dinner. After
dinner he ordered a fire built in the
kitchen, and the servants.who were.in and
out of the room, say that he burned several
bundles of private papers, including
letters. At 9 o'clock he sent for Dr.
Yocom, his physician, and complained of
a pain in his chest. The doctor was there
over an hour, and about 10:30 Mr. Schulze
retired. 7 "'2
At 8 o'clock this morning Henry, his
Japanese servant, took up a light break
fast. He told his master that he was
going to market and asked if he wanted
anything purchased. Mr. Schulze re
plied •in the negative. At 11:30 the ser
vants heard a noise in the direction of Mr.
Schulze's room, but "paid little attention
to it at the time. At 2 o'clock the man
Henry returned, and as somebody had
telephoned for Mr. Schulze he went to his
door and knocked. There was no response,
and Henry decided not to disturb him.
He tried the door, but it was locked.
A little before 4 o'clock Alfred Anderson,
Mr. Schulze's private secretary, telephoned
to the house and directed the servant to
arouse Schulze. The door was still locked
and finally the servant broke it open. He
found his master lying stiff iv death, with
a bullet through his head. The ball had
entered the right temple and stopped just
inside the skin on the opposite side.
Dr. Yocom was called. He made an ex
amination and notified the Coroner and
friends. There will be no inquest.
A number of warm personal friends and
Northern Pacific officials gathered at the
house and learned the details' of the sad
story, some of them choking with sobs.
