VIRGINIA CITY. Nev., June 3.— An in toxicated miner attacked Foreman Dobie of the Chollar mine to-night near the shaft on the 450-foot level of the mine, and a dcs- perate hand-to-hand encounter was fought on the brink of the shaft, an abyss extend ing 900 feet further into the bowels of the earth. Dobie found the miner, whose name is Pat Rogers, in a dark corner of the drift doing no work and ordered him above ground. Rogers refused to obey the order, ■whereupon Dobie went to the shaft and leaned over it to get hold of the bell cord to signal for the cage. While he was in this attitude Rogers attacked him and at- tempted to throw him over. Dobie lost his balance, but caught the shaft timbers. A desperate encounter ensued on the brink of the frightful hole, Rogers finally being overcome. Ab Dobie again regained his footing on the station Rogers made a savage lunge at him with a long steel candlestick, used to drive into the rocky walls of the mine. This thrust was parried, and another miner coming to the assistance of Dobie, Rogers vras taken out of the mine. SETTLJEIt AT jPORTLAMV. The Oregon Short JAn* JVotr in the Hands of a Aetr Jiecfirer. PORTLAND, Or., June 3.— ln the United States Circuit Court this afternoon Judge Gilbert signed an order appointing John }A. Egan receiver of the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern Railroad, and also an order allowing the issue of receiver's cer tificates to the amount of $750,000. The decision of the court to-day practi cally settled the Short Line case, and as soon as the American Loan and Trust Company pays the interest on the first mortgage bonds, which amounts to $1,750, --000, the road will be turned over to the new receiver. The order appointing an independent re ceiver makes the appointment effective June 1, but it may probably be three days before the road passes into his hands. Immediately after the order was signed, Mr. Egan left for Omaha. C. H. Hold redge, formerly general agent of the passenger department of the Chicago Great Western, with headquarters in St. Paul, is in Portland en route to Alaska. He says the report published in St. Paul that he is to be general passenger agent of the Oregon Short Line under Receiver Egan is without foundation. On his returm from Alaska he will probably go to the South, as he is interested in a private enterprise in that section of the country. A Santa Rosa Wedding.

THE FRESNO FORGER Deprived of the Prop erty Fraudulently Secured. A aUICK DECISION MADE. Suft Brought by the Brother of the Missing Reedley Rancher. NO ATTEMPT AT DEFENSE. The Forged Deeds Ordered Can celed—Title Now Vested In Thomas Wootton. FRESNO, Cal., June 3.— Judge Carter to-day decided a case that takes out of Professor W. A. Sanders' hand all the property which he secured by forging the name of tha missing rancher, William Wootton. The suit was brought by Thomas Wootton, a brother of the Reedly farmer, who came out from England soon after William Wootton's disappearance. The testimony in the case was the same as that brought out in the famous trial for forgery, of which felony Professor Sanders was recently convicted. The land in question comprises about 3800 acres and is valued at about ?50,000. Thomas Wootton is the devisee, and has been awaiting the outcome of the criminal trial before bringing the civil suit for the recovery of the valuable estate for which Sanders is supposed to nave murdered William Wootton. The plaintiff put several witnesses on the stand to testify as to the sudden dis appearance of Wootton and the forging of the various deeds, mortgages and con tracts in the transfer of the estate from the missing rancher to Sanders. Charles Rohloff, who saw Wootton and Sanders drive away from the former's ranch on the day when the wealthy farmer was last seen, was the most important wit ness, and there was no attempt by the defendant's attorney to weaken his testi mony. In fact, the defense made prac tically no defense, and the trial lasted but an hour or two. At its close Judge Carter promptly ordered the canceling of all the instruments in the transfer. Until to-day the county records showed that Professor Sanders was the owner of a part of the property, while the title to the remainder was in the names of John Knausch and R. L. Graves, two mythical persons invented by Sanders to divert suspicion from himself. Saunders was arrested in April, 1894, on a charge of murdering Wooton, but the body was never found and the charge could not be sustained. He was then tried and found guilty of forgery. SANTA BARBARA LOYALTY It Will Give Preference to the Productions of Local Factories. 4 Good Progress Being Made on the Bridge to Span the Santa Maria. SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.— The first soap factory in Santa Barbara County is to be established at Summerland. This will be the first factory on the spot to use for fuel the excellent oil which this district is producing in such quantities. Messrs. Main and Lester have charge of this new enterprise and have erected a two-story building and have all the necessary ma chinery on the spot ready to set up. Experiments are being made with a view to refining Summerland oil products so that they can be used for illuminating purposes. The citizens of this place, who are indignant over the recent arbitrary ad vance in Standard Oil prices, are watching these experiments with interest, and are loyal enough to their locality to pledge themselves to the consumption of the re fined local product if it can be adapted to household uses, and will stand by the home product no matter what induce ments the Standard Oil Company may hereafter offer in the way of reduced prices. The Banta Maria Bridge. SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.— Two spans of the great iron bridge being placed by the Southern Pacific Company over the Santa Maria River, near Guadalupe, are already in place and the work is progress ing beyond the original calculations. The date of completion of the structure is now set for not later than July 1. At the mouth of the Santa Ynez River 600,000 bricks will be used for the construction of a pier. The greatest difficulty encountered by the builders so far is the lack of gravel and the distance to good stone quarries. There is talk of using the gravel deposit on the Sloan ranch in San Pascual Canyon. Should this be done a road would at once be built to the canyon, and thiq would give Lompoc railroad connection with the main line months ahead of the anticipated time. Damage to Bean Fields. SANTA BARBARA, Cal., June 3.— The recent season of continued high winds, so uncommon in this protected section of the southern coast, has done some damage to the beanfields near Hueneme, and 1100 acres may have to be replanted.

After perfecting all necessary arrangements for receiving the United States ship Olympia, which has been placed at the disposal of the naval battalion of the National Guard by the authorities at Washington for the purpose of joining in the coming fiesta at Santa Cruz, the gen eral procured a carriage and was driven to the proposed camping ground of the com panies of the National Guard of the Third Brigade, situated near Vallejo, where he made a thorough inspection and offered such suggestions as he deemed would con tribute to the comfort and efficient discip line of the men during their annual out ing campaign. It is the intention of Gen eral Barrett to visit all the various en campments of the guard throughout the State, if time can possibly be spared from his office duties. The steamer Olympia will probably leave Mare Island navy yard on Saturday next, and will drop down to San Francisco, where the naval battalion will embark and leave the following day for Santa Cruz, where she will remain for at least six days, affording every opportunity during that period for exhaustive drill and prac tice in the handling of the great guns by the members of the naval battalion. A large percentage of the regular crew will no doubt be retained on board to ensure the vessel being handled properly, and to assist in the practice of the guns. They will also assist in the course of instruction, but a sufficient number of the crew will be drafted into shore quarters to provide room and sleeping quarters for the bat talion. CLOVERDALE IN THE FIELD Preparing for a Grand Cele bration of the Fourth of July. A Fair Goddess, Columbia and Jus tice to Be Chosen by Popular Ballot. CLOVERDALE, Cal., June 3.—When ever Cloverdale decides to do anything, she does it well, as the city's fair bears testi mony. She has now decided to celebrate the Nation's birthday in a glorious and, in many respects.an entirely original manner. Indeed the day and the doings thereon are already the chief topic of conversation on the streets of Cloverdale. The "Fair Goddess" is being selected by ballot. "Columbia" will be the lady for whom the second highest number of votes have been cast, and the lady next on the list will officiate as Justice. The balloting, which has only begun, now stands: Miss Maud Graham, ir>6. Miss Eva Shelford, 114. Mrs. C. A. Thilo, 109. Miss Bertha McCray, 90. Miss Lizzie Markell, 20.

Colum bia will be enthroned upon a float drawn by six gallant blacks. Justice will likewise be carried in splendor. Albert G. Burnett will be the orator of the day. He needs no introduction to the eloquence-loving people of Sonoma County. A large dancing platform is to be erected in Colonel Prescott's grove. One of the most interesting features will be half and quarter mile bicycle races, in wnich a number of ladies will compete. There is also promised a pony race. In the afternoon the "Fantastics," alias "Horribles," alias "Squeedunks," will take possession of the town. The festivities of the day will be ended by a beautiful pyrotechnic display in the evening and a dance in Union Hall. There is yet another event which will appeal strongly to many, namely, a good, old fashioned barbecue. The piece de resist ance will be a mountain bear. Besides bruin there will be slaughtered two beeves, four calves, five porkers and eight head of mutton, and other good things will be in abundance. A large amount of money has been donated for the fete, and everybody is planning and working to make the cele bration a grand success.

CLAIMS OF COUNTIES Two Hundred Thousand Dollars' Worth of Them Allowed. MONEYS FOR INDIGENTS. Demands That Have Been Accumu lating for Twelve Years Past. WELCOME FUNDS TO MANY. List of Counties and Charitable In stitutions That Will Be Benefited. SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 3.— For th« past twelve years a series of demands have been accumulating in the hands of the Board of Examiners from the various counties throughout the State, being for money expended in the care of the aged, indigent and orphans. Taken in entirety, they amount to over $200,000. The act creating the power of counties making these demands upon the State having been repealed, making it an impos sibility for further drains of the treasury of a like nature, and in view of the fact that in many counties the county fnnds for this purpose are exhausted and inno cent deserving persons are actually in need and in danger of suffering, the members of the Board of Examiners decided to take instant action in the matter and sign tho demand. This was not done, however, until they had been submitted to the most rigid ex amination and in many cases curtailed to a considerable extent, and in one case, that of a claim from Moctoc County for the sup port of six orphans, the demand was denied altogether on the ground that the children had not Keen supported by said county for one ye:-r previous to making the demand for State assistance, as called for in the requirements of the act itself. The claims allowed the various counties and charitable institutions are as follows: San Joaquin $15,458 13 San Bernardino 7,953 82 Del Norte 007 OS Humboldt 1/243 86 Mendocino 8,027 38 Ventura. 2.600 47 San Diego 6,820 50 Sacramento County 0,065 08 Marin.... 2,078 07 Orange 2,189 48 Santa Clara....

Cool Weather Ha* Enhanced the Value of J,utr-Soirn Grain Crops. SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 3.— Director Barwick of the California Weather and Crop Service summarizes as follows : The average temperature for the week ending Monday, June 3, was: For Eureka, 52; Fresno, 64; Independence, 58; Los An geles, 62; Red Bluff, 66; Sacramento. 64; San Francisco, 56; San Luis Obispo, 52, and San Diego, 60. As compared with the normal, there was a heat deficiency as fol lows: Eureka, 2; Fresno. 8; Los Angeles, 4; Red Bluff, 5; Sacramento, San Fran cisco and San Diego. 3 degrees. The total precipitation for the week was nothing at Los Angeles, Red Bluff, Sacra mento and San Diego, a trace at Eureka and Fresno, one-tenth of an inch at San Francisco and half an inch at San Luis Obispo. As compared with the normal, a deficiency is reported at all points except San Francisco and San Luis Obispo, where a slight excess is shown. The continued cool weather in the grain growing sections of the State has enhanced the value of late-sown grain, causing it to fill out well with full pJump kernels. Rust has done considerable damage to grain in the lower San Joaquin Valley. For the first time ever known in Ventura County, the high winds have blown off entirely the blossoms from the sage-brush, thereby greatly reducing the honey pros pects in that county. The weather during the week has been exceptionally cool, except yesterday, which gave an excess of heat over the normal. The sunshine and temperature were very beneficial to all growing and maturing crops. The mountain counties report very cold weather, and in some a heavy snow fall is also reported, being an unusual thing so late in the season, even for our elevated regions. ; For additional JPacifio Qxut newt tec Second £ass
