fore United States Commissioner Shields.
He was represented by Frederick R. Cou
dert. Huntington admitted his identity.
He was taken before Judge Brown of the
United States District Court for warrant of
removal to California.
The indictment against Huntington was
found on March 33 in San Francisco, a cer
tified copy of which was sent to United
States District Attorney McFarlane. who
notified the railroad president to :r
before the United States Commissioner
and furnish bonds. When Huntington
was arraigned ncr Shields said
the only question he could inquire into
was the one of identity, which C^udert, for
Huntington, said would be admitted.
An order was then made out holding

It Was Spread on the Minutes of the
Court Yesterday.
The famous indictment against Collis P.
Huntineton was taken off the secret file
in the United States District Court yester
day. As soon as the news that the rail
road magnate had been arrested in New
York reached Judge Morrow he ordered
the document which caused so much ex
citement in local circles spread on the
minntes of the court.
The indictment 13 a long one, and fol
lows very closely the act entitled "An act
to regulate commerce." Rid of its legal
phraseology it sets forth that on the lOtb
day of February, ISM. Collis P. Hunting
ton was president of the Southern Pacific
Company; that branches of that com
pany's road ran into Utah, Oregon and
south through various States to New Or
leans. In pursuance of hi.« power as pres
ident he issued a pa=3 to Frank M. Stone,
which read as follows:

pany, 1«94, until December 31?t, unless other

After referring to the breach of the inter

the indictment set? forth : "That it was the 1

ALBANY, N. V-, April 22.— 1n the Court
of Appeals to-day Joseph H. Choate for
the appellant and Winslow Pierce

from an order from the general

special term, determining that the Union

He contended that within ten months
after the trust was constituted the trus

built at the foot of this reservoir, where
the Mojave, the largest river in Southern

HAVERHILL, Mass., April 22.— A let
ter received yesterday announces that
Frank Howard Poor, who is serving a year's
sentence tor forgery in the Massachusetts
reformatory at Concord, is heir to about
$16,000,000 through the death of Frank
Howard, a Nevada mine owner for whom
Poor was named.
He is about 24 years of age and before
his crime was found out was very popular.
He i 3 an orphan and with the exception of
a sister, who lives in Lynn, Mass., there is

The fortune to which young Poor is said
to have become heir is invested in mining

Poor there are several other beneficiaries
who are to receive amounts varying from
$200,000 to $500,000.
Will Kill the Cattle.
EUREKA, Kan-b., April 22.— Excitement
here over the attempt to import Mexican
rattle into this county for grazing is still
intense. The State Sanitary Board will
meet to-morrow and decide as to the ad
mission, and for the present the case is in
statu quo.
If the board decide to permit the cattle,
which are now in quarantine, to be un
loaded, trouble, it is thought, will surely
follow. Hundreds of cattlemen who have
come to town since the controversy arose
declare the animals shall be deported or
killed at almost any cost.

The agitation is declared to have re

The Court Asked to Restrain
Agent Beck From EJect
Indians Are With Difficulty Pre
vented From Opening
OMAHA, Nebr., April 22. —Two hundred
and ten Thurston County settlers were
summoned to appear in the Federal court
at Omaha to-day in the case wherein the
Flournoy Land Company asks a perma
nent injunction, restraining Captain Beck,
agent of the Winnebago Indians, from
ejecting the settlers on the reservation who
subleased the Indian lands from that
company. The case has been a feature of
the disturbance on the reservation for
months. It will be tried on its merits to-
United States District Attorney Sawyer,
who has charge of the case for the Govern
ment, asserted that there was danger of
trouble from the Indians unless the litiga
tion is adjusted one way or the other at an
early date. He returned from the reserva
tion yesterday, and is inclined to think
that danger is imminent.
Mr. Sawyer says it was just such a case
as the one that precipitated the outbreak
among the Winnebagos in 1562, when
they were on their reservation, which was
at that time located in Minnesota. He
talked with one survivor of the famous
tight the other day, and the aged warrior
frankly told him that history was liable to
repeat itself, and that with 600 fighting
men available they were liable to clean
out the Thurston County settlers some
morning if the question was not soon set
Conversation with others elicited the
fact that it was with great difficulty that
the pacific members of toe tribe counseled
and enforced patience and obedience to
the wishes of Captain Beck, the Indian
agent, who favored a peaceful settlement
of the difficulty. They were ready to tight
at any time, and were only held in check
by the agent by promises of relief from the
present trouble. As Captain Beck has
authority to commission every Indian on
the reservation a policeman, it ia predicted
that the authority thus vested would en
courage an outbreak. \Vith this fact in
mind. Captain Beck has commissioned but
sixteen Indian police, although he admits
that he will enforce the Government regu
lations, if it takes every Indian on the
tain Beck is in Omaha, and also ex
pressed the belief that trouble will result if
this question is not settled. He believed
that an uprisine would be averted unless
the Floumoy Company aggravates the In
dians "nto violent deportment. In the
meantime he hoped and believed the Win
nebagos and Omahas would calmly await
developments, and peaceably abide by his
wishes for peace.
He said the Indians had good cause for
grievance. Even the money collected for
Indian children has not been paid. It was
a clear violation of guardianship confi
dence, and when an Indian's child is
wronged it generally found resentment in
the hearts of the tribe.
The Indians, he said, are now develop
ing a keen interest in the case. They have
lately established a relay of couriers, and
as soon as information is obtained it is
transmitted quickly, and in a few hours
all the Indians are posted on current
When asked why the two Indian police
men now in jail were not released on bail
Captain Beck said he wanted them to re
main in jail in order to cinch a suit for
false imprisonment, which he will briii£
against Sheriff Mullin and others. As an
example of the temper of the Indians the
captain said that one chief volunteered 100
men to prevent the arrest of the two In
dian police.
President Cleveland Says He Seeds Xo
One to Talk for Him.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 22. -The
statement which J. Sterling Morton cave
to the press last week of his views upon
the financial question has been interpreted
by the press very generally as an utterance
made on behalf of the President expressing
bis attitude. This inference was based
largely upon the circumstances that Mr.
Morton made public his statement so soon
after his return from the White House,
where he had been in conference with the
President at the regular Cabinet meeting.
This surmise was proven to-day to be in
correct by denials which were made by
both President Cleveland and Mr. Morton.
The President's statement, which was
given to the Associated Press by Private
Secretary Thurber, follows. The Presi
dent, being asked this evening whether
Secretary Morton's interview upon the
money question might be regarded as rep
resenting his views, replied :
"I am in no manner responsible for Mr.
Morton's interview and knew nothing of it
until 1 raad it in the papers. When I have
seen fit to say anything to the people on
the money question or any other subject I
have thus far found it quite easy to do so
directly and on my own account."

WASHINGTON, D. C, April 22.— Dr.
Salmon, chief of the Bureau of Animal In
dustry of the Agricultural Department, in
speaking of the report that a large horse
slaughtering and packing industry had
been started in Portland, Or., said there
was no law compelling such meats to be
labeled, as in the case of oleomargarine
when sold as butter. The buyers of beef
can distinguish this kind of meat, as Gov
ernment inspection of slaughtered cattle is
made, and a Government stamp is placed
on each quarter of beef. Dr. Salmon says
hat the department has endeavored to
secure legislation similar to the oleomarg
arine law, which will compel dealers in
horsemeat to have it labeled, so that con
sumers need not be deceived.
Agitation Cannot Destroy the Truth of
Statements Regarding Prices.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 22.— Dr.
Salmon to-day was shown the dispatch
given out by R. P. Woodbury, secretary of
the Kansas City stockyards, in which it
was charged that the agitation begun by
the Agricultural Department has hurt the
livestock industry. In reply Dr. Salmon
"The United States Department of Agri
culture had its attention called to the dis
crepancy between the prices of fat cattle
on the hoof and the price of prime beef in
retail markets before an investigation had
been authorized by any person connected
with the department.' 1 He declared that
he did not credit the statement that the
agitation had put down the price of live
cattle rind maintained the retail price of
beef as it is alleged by the Kansas City
stockyards people; prices depend now and
have depended all along on the relation of
the supply of beef to the demand for beef.
"Agitation and investigation," he said,
"can neither cripple nor destroy the truth
and the right, and it is due to the pro
ducers and the consumers alike that the
intermediary protits of middlemen stand
ing between them should be only reason
able and compensatory. The advance in
prices by retail dealers in dressed beef of
5 cents to the consumers when there is
an advance of only $1 per 100 pounds to
the farmers and cattle-feeders for animals
on the hoof is not regarded as equitably
A Butte Woman Said to Have
Been Unjustly Held at
San Diego.
She Is Found Only After Her Hus
band Had Been Charged With
Her Murder.
SALT LAKE, Utah, April 22.— A spe
cial to the Herald from Butte, Mont., says:
An evenfng paper prints a startling story
about a former well-known woman, Mrs.
Jerome B. Westgate, having been locked
up in a private madhouse at San Diego,
Cal., on charges trumped up by her hus
band. About ten years ago the woman
owned large real estate interests in Butte,
but her health failed, and her husband
persuaded her to dispose of her* property
and go to California. Since then her
friends and a sister living here have heard
little from her.
Some weeks ago the sister received an
anonymous letter, informing her that Mr-.
Westgate was incarcerated in a private
asylum at San Diego. The former at once
went to her sister's rescue and secured her
release and has just returned to Butte with
Mrs. Westgate is a physical wreck, She
says that shortly after they settled in Sun
Diego she invested her money successfully,
while her husband became worthless, She
threatened to sue for a divorce and then he
schemed to get possession of her property.
He destroyed their marriage certilieatp
and denied that she was his wife. She
claims that he drugged her and had her
confined in a private asylum and kept in a
solitary cell for week^.
Friends charged her husband with mur
der, and in this way her whereabouts was
discovered, Mrs- Westgate nas secured a
copy of her marriage oertiticate and will
return to San Diego to recover her prop
He Denies the Charges Made by Hit
SAN DIEGO, Gal., April 22.— Jerome B.
Westgate states that for some time after lie
and Mrs. Westgate came to San Diego she
showed signs of insanity, but that
no particular notice was taken of
her case until last October, when she
was regularly examined by physicians
here, declared insane and committed to
the asylum at San Bernardino, from where
reports occasionally reached him that she
was no better. On April 15 he was in
formed by the manager of the a«ylum that
Mrs. Westgate had been released on March
28 with a certificate that she was 95 per
cent sane and that she had accompanied
her sister to Chicago.
Westgate also states that he helped his
wife to obtain a divorce, and that he was
married to her by contract in February,
l- (<> >, in this city, and that he has
this certificate still in his possession.
He says that all the property is
still in his wife's name, that he has
never practiced any cruelty toward
her, and that he was not aware, until quite
recently, that she was either liberated or
that any steps wore being taken to secure
her property. He now declares it to be his
intention to procure a divorce and apply
for a restitution of his property, as he con
siders it rightfully belongs to him.
Westgate is living here in a quiet and
unassuming manner, occupying a cottage
that appears to have been built by careful
saving, and he is carrying on a small cal
cimining business in order to make a
living. Neither his personal appearance
nor his known habits would indicate either
a violent nature or extravagant living.

Curious People Struggled to
Get a Glimpse of the
Bridal Party.
Prominent Guests From All Parts
of the East Attend the Wed
ding Breakfast.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 29.— The
wediing of Hon. George Nathaniel Curzon,
M.P., and Miss Mary Leiter was celebrated
at St. John's Episcopal Church at 11:30
o'clock to-day amid scenes of such bril
liancy and in the presence of such a dis
tinguished assemblage of Cabinet officers,
diplomats, Governors and Bishops as gives
the event the character of a public cere-
The church was tilled and surrounded by
a curious crowd.
The ushers were Joseph Leiter, brother
of the bride, and Frank Curzon, brother of
the groom.
Mrs. Cleveland occupied a seat in the
forward part of the church.
The President did not appear, as it is an
unwritten law that the Executive shall not
attend private social events.
The wedding party moved up the main
aisle to the cbancel, where Bishop Talbott
and Rev. Dr. Mackay Smith officiated.
The bride, in white satin and rare white
lace, carrying a cluster of white orchids,
was on the arm of her father.
The bridesmaids, Misses Nannie and
Daisy Leiter, wore pink tulle gowns, with
large pink mull hats, and carried large
bouquets of pink roses. The groom and
Mrs. Leiter, Sir James and Lady Miller and
Lord Lamington, the groom's best man,
Jo?eph Leiter and Frank Curzon completed
the party.
After the marriage service of the Epis
copal church the wedding party withdrew
to the Leiter residence, where they were
joined later by relatives and intimate
friends for the wedding breakfast.
A large force of policemen were on duty
outside the church, but it was with dif
ficulty that the ' crowd could be held in
check. A solid mass of people, mainly
women, blocked the sidewalks and streets,
so that the carriages bringing the guests
had to force their way to the church en
trance under escort of the officers. There
was such a rush when the carriage of Mrs.
Cleveland and that of the bride arrived
that women screamed and fainted and for
a time there threatened to be a panic. No
accidents occurred, however, although the
crush resulted in many torn and dis
heveled garments.
The guests at the wedding breakfast were
as follows:

major-generalship, as he is the senior offi
cer and has a good record. The other
brieadier-generals concede that General
Merritt is entitled to the honor.
Colonel Bliss is likely to be appointed
brigadier-general, though it is said the
President may surprise the army folks by
selecting Colonel John M. Wilson, who is
now detailed as superintendent of the
Government buildings in Washington.
He is the custodian of the White House
and is President Cleveland's intimate
friend. The other colonels who are eligi
ble for this promotion are Merriam, Mason,

It May Be Seeessary to Prosecute to
Recover Government Property.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 22.— The
Department of Agriculture has prepared a
report in answer to the Senate resolution
inquiring as to the whereabouts and con
ditions of the experimental sugar machin
ery which was purchased by the depart
ment at various times at a cost of about
$280,000. So far, the report says, very lit
tle good has ever been derived from it. The
machinery was loaned out to persons to
make experiments and it is now in the
hands of private parties. The most of it
is in Kansas, though a small portion is in
Florida and Louisiana.
The department will also take up the
question of what to do with it, and it is
thought it will be appraised and sold.
Some difficulty is anticipated in proving
the title to the property, as a great deal of
it is in the hands of people who claim pos
session. In several cases the Department
of Agriculture has referred the Govern
ment cases to the Department of Justice,
and it is expected that United States Dis
trict Attorneys will be called upon to assist
in reclaiming the machinery.
