of men to his friends and was ready to
do them a kind act. This fact and the na
ture of his demise causes them the deepest
sorrow. President Oakes and General Man
ager Kendrick of the Northern Pacific, who
came here partly to arrange for the trans
fer of his office to his successor, were much
affected by the tragedy.
Paul Schulze was born in Germany in
184S and received a collegiate and univer
sity education in his native country. He
came to the United States in November,
1868, at the age of 20. After having been
engaged in various occupations in Cali
. fornia, in November, 1871, he entered the
service of the land department of the
Oregon and California Railroad in Port
land, Oregon. During a visit in Germany
in 1874 he met Henry Villard, who soon
after became president of the Oregon and
California Railroad, and Mr. Schulze was
appointed land agent of that road in July,
1874, which position he held until April,
1882. In August, 1882, he was appointed
general land agent of the Northern Pacific
and was otherwise connected with various
enterprises with Mr. Villard. In 1885 the
general land office of the Northern Pacific
was removed to Tacoma and he had lived
here ever since.
Six years ago Schulze and Henry Vil
lard organized the Tacoma Railway and
Motor Company, to operate the Tacoma
street railways, of which Villard controlled
the single line then built. Nearly
$2,000,000 was spent in constructing new
lines under Mr. Schulze's management as
president. About three years ago Villard
and Schulze 'had a falling out, but the lat
ter remained in control. In December the
New York bondholders applied for and
had a receiver appointed for the system.
Five years ago the Northern Pacific, at
Mr. Schulze's instance, inaugurated the
Sunnyside canal project to irrigate 100,000
acres of land in Yakima County. Later an
. independent company was formed, to
which the railroad transferred the canal
and the railroad lands under it.
Subsequently the property was trans
ferred to the Yakima Investment Com
pany, of which Mr. Schulze was president,
the second company being to facilitate the
floating of the bends. In this scheme Mr.
Schulze took great pride, and it was one of
his chief desires to assist in putting j under
cultivation the great Yakima Valley, which
needed but water to make it one of the
most fertile sections of the West.
After announcing his retirement from
the railroad on Wednesday, Mr. Schulze
"I am now free to look after my own in
terests, which have greatly suffered on ac
count of my connection with the Northern
Pacific Railroad Company. I shall devote
myself particularly to the reorganization
of the Tacoma Railway and Motor Com
pany and to the financing of the Yakima
Investment Company.- :.':-:
"The latter, I am glad to say, has made
very satisfactory progress in the last
month. It is now a matter oi but a few
weeks when the company will be relieved
entirely from its present embarrassment."
Three receivers for this company, of
which Mr. Schulze was one, were appoint
ed last fall. Mr. Schulze was vice-presi
dent of the Tacoma Smelting and Refining
Company, a director in the Traders' Bank,
and was formerly president of the Union
Club. He owned a large house. He was
married, but three years ago secured a di
vorce. His wife and daughter had resided
in Germany for a number of years previous
to that. ' ,

A Feud of Longstanding Ends
in the Murder of a

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Cal., April 12.— A j
foul murder came to light this morning i
with , the discovery of the body of Jose
Ygnacio Villa, a well-known rancher, hid
den in the tall grass on a vacant lot in this ;

An Action Involving the
Title to Large : .
It Is Sought by the Govern

————— •
Overlapping Land Claimed to Have
Been Illegally Absorbed by
the Road.
PORTLAND, Or., April 12.— A case in
volving the title to -200,000 acres of land,
situated in Multnomah and Clackamas
counties, near this city, will come up in
the United States Circuit Court next Tues
day. The case is known as the "Overlap
land case," and is brought by the United
States Government against the Southern
Pacific Company.
In 1873 Congress granted to the Northern
Pacific Railroad Company the alternate
sections of a tract of land from a point on
the great lakes to a point on Puget Sound,
twenty miles wide on each side of the road
through the States and forty miles wide
through the Territory. Provision was
made in the same act that if a branch line
were built to Portland from a point 300
miles or less east of the western or Puget
Sound terminus, another tract forty miles
wide should be given along ' the branch.
The Puget Sound terminus is Tacoma and
the "point 300 miles or less east" is Wal
Subsequently Congress granted to the
Oregon, and California road a forty-mile
tract from Portland to. the California line.
As the end of both grants was at Portland,
they overlapped in Multnomah and
Clackamas counties, and in the overlap
ping tract are 200,000 acres.
The contention of the Government is
that the 200,000 acres, having been given
to the Northern Pacific in 1873, were not
included in the grant to' the Oregon and
California, which has been absorbed by the
Southern Pacific, and that the Northern
Pacific's prior grant excluded the . land
from the grant to the Oregon and Califor
nia. But the Northern Pacific failed to
build from Wallula to Portland and its
grant along the Columbia River was for
feited to the Government. As the over
lapping land— the 200,000 acres was never
included in the grant to the Oregon and
California, it is claimed that it cannot now
be included.

Mystery Surrounds the Pretended Hold-
Up Near Mountain View.
SAN JOSE, Cai*, April 12.— The mystery ;
surrounding the reported hold-up of W.
Saunders, near Mountain View v deepens,
and officers who have returned from the
scene of the operations are not backward
in denouncing the hold-up as a pre
arranged job.
At Mountain View they learned that the
man who "passed as W. Saunders was, none
other than J. B. Chamon de St. Hubert,
president of the Wine-dealers' Association.
Tuesday evening after supper the stranger
said he was going, out for a walk and did
not return until;, midnight. The next
morning he mysteriously absented him
self for a couple ;of hours, and then re
turned and hired the buggy.
Mr. Wagner, in .whose barn the robbers
are supposed to have left Saunders, or St.
Hubert, handcuffed to the manger, says
the pretended officers came to his place
and asked permission to leave their pris
oner, who, they said, had been arrested on
suspicion. He was handcuffed and placed
in the barn. After warning Wagner to
keep a watchful eye on the man they de
parted. When Wagner looked into the
barn. St. Hubert .was missing. A laborer
"who was working in the orchard back of
the barn says he saw a man running
through the orchard, toward the Stevens
Creek road, and that. at that point he
joined two men in a buggy. The officers
have . been unable to trace the route taken
by the men in the buggy, but it is sup
posed they have gone to San Francisco*
• The whole affair is shrouded in mystery
and the officers are at , a loss to account for
the strange proceeding. J. B. Chamon de
St. Hubert was well known in the city.
Some years ago he sued J. B. J. Portal for
$19,000 for defamation of character and
secured $1 damages. •'„■•■

PITTTSBTJRG, Pa., April 12.— For the
first time in the history of the country
pardon is to be asked for a murderer on the
grounds of insanity caused by the Keeley
treatment. .;■/;_ \
The case is that of Daniel Werling, who
murdered his wife here last April. Charles
A. O'Brien, his attorney, will go before the
Pardon Board on Wednesday.
He has affidavits from doctors and the
best sanity experts in this part of the State,
who say that the Keeley treatment fre
quently produces insanity and sometimes
i death. : : ./;*;;
They say there are many cases of insan
ity on record caused by the cure. The
cause, they say, is the use of atrophia and
strychnine, which, under certain condi
tions, have a deleterious effect on the brain
and nerves. Werling took two • courses of
the Keeley treatment inside of six months
before he committed the murder.

On a Famous Telegram He Bases
His Claim for the Nomi
nation. . ,
.•••'. !■ ■' . ••• >.■ ' ■ . • •
WASHINGTON, D. C, April . 12.— The
latest candidate for the Republican Presi
dential nomination is Senator C. K. Davis
of Minnesota, and his Presidential boom is
assuming respectable proportions. Repre
sentative Tawney of Minnesota says that
if a Western man is chosen, Senator Davis
will be urged as the most available and
promising candidate, and that Minnesota
will send a solid delegation to the conven
tion pledged to support him.
Mr. Davis' candidacy will be interesting
to California people, inasmuch as his
boom was started, and, in fact, is based on
his telegram regarding the great strike of
the American -Railway Union. While the
strike was at its height the Knights of
Labor and other industrial organizations
appealed to Senator Kyle of South Dakota
to introduce a resolution in the Senate fa
vorable to the strikers.
The purport of the resolution was a dec
laration that unless . transportation of
United States mail was obstructed the de
lay of trains by strikers was not an offense
against the ' Federal Government. The
leader of the' railroad strikers in Minne
sota telegraphed Senator Davis, in . the
name of railroad employes, urging him
to support Senator Kyle's resolution.
Promptly came the Minnesota Senator's
reply, declining to support the resolution.
It is on this telegram that his friends are
basing much of his claim to the nomi
nation. In it the Senator said :
"You" are rapidly approaching an overt
act of levying war against the United
States, and "you will find a definition of
that act in the constitution. I trust that
wiser thoughts will gain control.. You
might as well ask" me to vote to dissolve
this Government."
This telegram focused the eye of the
public upon Mr. Davis at an exciting pe
riod. Senator Davis followed his telegram
some time afterward with a speech in the
Senate indorsing Cleveland's action in
sending Federal troops to Chicago.
The Minnesota Senator is now 57 years
old ; and is a native of New York. .He
served as a lieutenant in a Wisconsin regi
ment during the war, and began his public
career in 1867, when he was elected to the
Minnesota Legislature. He was .United
States District Attorney, from 1868 to 1873,
and was elected Governor of the State in
1875 and United States Senator in 1887. F&
Secretary Morton Does Some
Fine Work in Cleveland's
Of Course, the "Reformers" Will
Agree That a Third Term Is
the Proper Thing.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 12.—Secre
tary Morton of the Agricultural Depart
ment recently sent a note of thanks to J.
R. Buchanan, general passenger agent of
the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri . Val
ley Railroad, stationed in Omaha. Mr.
Buchanan responded in another tetter,
suggesting that in Mr. Cleveland's nomi
nation for a third term rests the chief sal
vation of the country from the silver craze.
Secretary Morton sent the letter contain
ing this suggestion to John Dewitt
Warner of New .York, a leading light of
the Reform Club. , Mr. Morton's letter to
Mr. Warner reads:
United States Department of Agriculture,}
' Washington, D. C, March 12. j
To the Hon. John Dewitt Warner, New York
City— Dear Mr. Warner: The inclosed let
ter from J. R. Buchanan, general passenger
agent of the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri
Valley Railroad Company of Omaha, may be of
interest to you. It is in reply to one written
him by me, in which I thanked him for his
earnest efforts in securing the publication of a
screed of mine, "A Few Facts in France," in a
great many of the patent-inside newspapers
which are circulated out West. My object in
sending you this letter of Mr. Buchanan's is to
give you a thorough-going business man's
views of the situation. The letter shows how
fallacies flourish among the financiers of the
West and South. The letter also points out the
necessity of immediate coherent and organized
action in behalf of sound money. Havine read
the same (you may copy it if you desire), I wish
•you would return the same and I will write Mr.
Buchanan. Possibly our friends of the Reform
Club may be benefited by seeing | Mr. Buchan
an's communication. Very truly yours, > '
J. Sterling Morton. '
. The conclusion of Mr. Buchanan's letter
to Secretary Morton is as follows: .
. My judgment, from the present outlook, Is
that the Eastern conservatives of both parties
are likely to unite and possibly renominate
Mr. Cleveland, who will carry the East and
South. No doubt exists of his able honest
conservatism, and the South wiil vote for him
because they could never vote otherwise than
the Democratic- ticket, thus' insuring a vote
which would elect. The West will undoubtedly
support the Populists, or free-silvcrites,-_nless
there is a great change. If this is not done I
feel the election will be thrown into the House
as a result of three tickets being in the field,
in which case the balance of power would be
with the ree-6ilver interest, 1 believe If a vote
were taken to-day on the naked question of a
16 to 1 silver platform Nebraska would give it
a majority of 50,000, or near it.
.These suggestions are for what information
you may be able to glean from them. I believe
the situation is critical and of importance.
Yours' truly. --„-." • ; J. B. Buchanan. .'

Hood's Sarsaparilla
Is the Only True Blood Purifier Prominently in the Public Eye Toda ,
tract from the Brazilian jaborandi plant,
on the lymphatic system. This, in a sense,
completes the celebrated "Heilserum," act
ing favorably on patients whom serum does
not cure. \ ~ ; V}V/V
The key to the discovery is this: By suc
cessive injections of minute doses of pilo
carpine into the veins he arrives at the
gradual stimulation of the lymphatic sys
tem. That system increases the white
corpuscles in the blood, which, in some
way not agreed upon, certainly overcome
and render harmless those poisonous par
ticles in the blood that produce the dis
ease. ' . *
; The discoverer strongly advises the phy
sicians to use pilosarpine in the early
stages of consumption, and, indeed, in all
diseases involving . the lymphatic system.
He has satisfied himself that it forms a
trustworthy test for the presence of tuber
culosis in man and animal. The report
closes with the statement of a case of lupus
of twenty-two years' duration, regarded as
incurable, which was relieved immediately
after the first injection and is now almost
healed. . • ' ' ■

Administration Men Will Take
Part in the Coming
Cleveland's Letters and Speeches
the Keynote to the
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 12.— 1t is
now certain that several members of the
administration will take a prominent part
in the political campaign over the money
question that will be carried on in different
States. '
The invitation of the Chicago business
men to President Cleveland asking him to
make an address' in that city on the sub
ject of the currency has been followed by
intimations from other ; places that { the
members of the Cabinet were wanted
to make similar addresses in order
that the position of the administration
may be placed upon the country in a most
forcible way. The President has not yet
answered the Chicago invitation, but if he
finds it impossible to go it is expected that
he will decline in a letter expressing clearly
his views on the subject of money. ; '. -
The campaign within the Democratic
party against the free-coinage movement
will no doubt take its keynote from the
President's letter and the speeches which
may be made by members of the cabinet.
. The campaign will be directed against
the free coinage of silver at 16 to 1, and the
assertion will be made that such coinage
would mean silver, monometallism and
would be' disastrous to the business inter
ests of the country, great and small, and
extend to every class and condition, no
matter in what pursuit engaged. "./■
