Bright Prospects for the
State Fair at Sac
Four Deaths the Probable Re
sult of the Franklin Mine
The Fifth Hold-Up Within Three
Months Scored by the Topsy
Grade Bandit.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 28.— "TheTe |
has never been so bright an outlook in !
State Fair matters in the history of Cali- i
fornia as there is this year," said Director |
Land when questioned upon the subject,
"and, in my judgment, there will be the j
largest attendance ever known; in fact, I |
fear it will be almost impossible to pro- i
vide suitable quarters for all the expected !
"The action of the board of directors in j
reducing the entry fees to 5 per cent in |
several of the racing classes bids fair to
insure the entrance of the finest stock in
the State. And without a doubt we will
have the track in a condition which will
make record-breaking not only a possi
bility, but a probability. Again, we pos
se's a great advantage over former
years, in the fact that the State
Fair will be the only one this season, and I
exhibitor? from all portions of the State j
will be anxious for space in the pavilion to
advertise their products. This will of it
self insure us the finest display that has
been made since the establishment of the
annual State Fair as an institution. The
advertisement of bids for pool-selling pur
poses will also be very satisfactory to the
people at large, as it will obviate any idea
of fraud on the part of any one.
"To sum up. I am fully satisfied that the
State Fair of 1595 will be in every way the
best conducted, and will draw a larger
number of people to Sacramento than the
city has ever had in former years."
Thomas Fox, president of the Native
Sons, when approached upon the subject
of the outlook for the coming State Fair,
said :
• The outlook is grand and it is the in
tention of the local parlors of the order of
Native Sons to do all that lies in their
power to contribute to its success. We
will, in conjunction with the citizens,
decorate the city in a style and
with a profuseness that has never
before been known. There will be at least
8000 Native Sons in this city during the
session of the coming State Fair, and
nearly all will brinrr friends and relatives.
Our parade on Admission day will surpass
anything of the kind that has ever been
done by the order upon the coast, and we
have had large turnouts at various times
in different portions of the State."
Assistant Superintendent Jones of the
f>->iitiiern Pacific Compan\' states that his
company expects and will make due prepa
ration to handle the largest passenger
traftic that has ever been known in a single
locality in the State.
"We are already in receipt of numerous
applications for speciaLtrains. and are pos
itive that the influx of visitors to Sacra
mento will be greater than was ever before
known/ s*id he.
William Duden, manager for Water
house <fc Lester, said the outlook for the
State Fair had never been brighter and
that it would positively insure a season of
prosperity for tha city with the excellent
arrangements that are being perfected by
the board of State Fair directors. With
the visit of the Native Sons, the excellent
T^rogramme that has been prepared and
the proposed electrical display there can
be no possible doubt but that the State
Fair will prove a great success.

One Dritth Has Resulted and Three
Other Victims Cannot Live.
SEATTLE, Waph., June 28.— A special
from Franklin to a local paper this lifter
noon says regarding the coal-mine accident
at that place yesterday:
This place is once more the scene of one
of those disasters which promise to give
tin- camp an unenviable reputation among
coa;-miners of the Northwest. This is the
second fatality since the memorable
one of August Jast year. It has
rome to light that last November two
Italian miners of this place were killed by
firedamp, and concerning these deaths
nothing was fafci in the papers, although
t!.. affair was investigated by the proper
The victims of yesterday's explosion are
nine in number, one of whom, Park Rob
inson, the underground manager of the
entirf Franklin mine, died within four
hours nfter the explosion without having
regained consciousness. Three others are
not expected to live, and of the rest all
may be more or less maimed for life.
It is impossible to gather any informa
tion relative t>, the immediate cause of the
fatal explosion. Reliable information can
not be obtains) from either the men or the
mine authorities.
Srnaalional Chartjru and Counter Charge*
in a lUrurre Suit.
FRESNO, Cal., June 28.— A sensational
divorce case was tried before Judge E. W.
Risley, to-day. The action was brought
by Mrs. Barbara Victor against Frank
"Victor^ and the ground was cruelty, many
instances of which were cited in the com
The plaintiff alleged that she was mar
ried to the defendant twenty-seven yearß
ago, but Victor sets up as an answer that
they were never married. He says he
knows Mrs. Victor has a husband, who is
paid to own a saloon in Cincinnati, Ohio.
At one time Mr. and Mrs. Victor lived on
K'jberta Island. Mrs. Victor had four
children by her first or rightful husband,
Victor alleges, and when she began to live
with Victor the children went to her new

Mr. and Mrs. Victor, who are now about
55 years old, have two grown children,
both of whom are married and have

Coroner Mitchell's Explanation of thn
l>o\cling Affair.
AUBURN, Cal., June 28.— The dispatch
from Ukiah, published in the Call of yes
terday, accusing Coroner Mitchell of this
county of extortion in telegraphing to
Mrs. Dowling at Ukiah that her son had
baen killed by a train at Colfax, when the
dead man was not her son, but one "Jack"
Morton, has created a little flutter on the
part of Mr. Mitchell's friends.
Coroner Mitchell explains that the dead
man was first identified as Dowling by one
Carter, who claimed to have been raised
with him. He was afterward identified as
"Jack" Morton. The Coroner and jury
believed, however, that Dowling and Mor
ton were one and the same person. The
Coroner telegraphed to Ukiah, and on re
ceiving no answer, left an order for the
undertaker to bury the body. A few days
later a relative of Dowling, Mrs. D. C.
Heger of San Francisco, called on the un
dertaker, who alleges that he received her
with the utmost courtesy. It was then
that it was learned that Dowling was alive
and Morton was dead. As to there being
any extortion on the part of the Coroner
and undertaker, it is claimed there is not
an iota of truth in it.
A Record of Five Stage. Robberies Within
Three Months.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or., June 28.— The
hold-up of the Klamath Falls and Ager
stage which occurred last night made the

Away Both Trophies of the
SACRAMENTO, Cal., Jnne 28.— Com-,
pany F of Oroville captured both medals
at the annual State shoot of the National
Guard of Caliiornia, held this morning at
the rifle range in this city. Private H. H.
Tabor on a score of 45 won the gold medal
and Private J. McGee with a score of 44
received the silver insignia which testifies
to his prowess at the butts. The last five
shots of Private Tabor were all recorded
within the bullseyes. the first five shots
registering four points each.
The day was all that could be desired,
save that a strong south wind was blow
ing, and the scores were excellent, consid
ing that the men were shooting on a
strange range, with ammunition to which
they were unaccustomed. Nor do they
have the slightest fault to find with the
latter, although they claim that it shoots
stronger and throws slightly higher than
the ordinary cartridge.
Less than half the tabulated shots were
present and the contest occupied but two
hours aud a half. Those who participated
and scores made were as follows:

OROVILLE, Cal., June 28.— The news
received this afternoon that Private How
ard H. Taber of Company F had again
won first medal and Private J. M. McGee
second medal at the State shoot at Sacra
mento to-day, created great excitement
here. This evening great preparations
were made to receive the sharpshooters of

to-night. Company F was ordered out in
full uniform at 10 o'clock to parade the
principal streets and proceed to the depot
to escort the sharpshooters to the armory,
where a large banquet was given in honor
of the winners. Along the line of march
fireworks were displayed.

Success of the Flour
City's Water Fete
Citizens Working With a Will
in Preparing for the
Miss Edna Cole Chosen Queen
of the Fourth of July
STOCKTON, Cal., June 28.— Stockton is
all excitement over the coming water car
nival to be held on the night of the Fourth
of July. The celebration will take place
on McLeod's Lake, which affords wonder
ful facilities for a demonstration of the
kind proposed. The lake is fully 1000
yards long and 300 wide at its widest part.
The eastern and southern sides are covered
with a growth of tall willows, which will
be tilled with many thousands of lights on

the evening of the earniral. The northern
shore has no growth of any kind upon it to
hide the view of the lake, and so this has
been selected for the grand stand, which is
fast nearing completion. It is designed to
seat 4000 people, ana near it will be a drive
way for those viewing the scene from their
The eastern end of the lake, at the end of
Lindsay Point, will be given up to the
landing-place and throne of the Carnival
Queen, who is now being balloted for by
the people. Her float will also land at
this point, and her retainers escort her to
the high throne, that can be plainly seen
from all parts of the lake. On the south
ern side will be the bnrge from which the
rireworks will be discharged. All about
McLeod's Lake are hundreds of house
boats, arks and catamarans. These will
all be decorated with colored and Japanese
lanterns. From the grand stand west to
the junction of the lake with Stockton
Channel will be hung strings of lanterns.
The electrical committee, under the di
rection of Frank Adams of the Electric
Light Company, is arranging for a gor
geous display. Among other things it will
have an electric fountain on the lake shore,
which will be a feature of the carnival.
The Queen's barge will be brilliantly
lighted by electricit\\ as will also many of
the large floats that are to participate in
the parade upon the water.
H. C. Bender has been elected director
general of the carnival. He is a profes
sional decorator as well as a clever business
man, and will devote his time to making
the affair a huge success. He is being as
sisted by several hundreds of the leading
men and women of Stockton, who are
thoroughly enthused over the coming
event and who are laboring very hard to
make every feature of the affair attractive.
H. R. McNoble, a bright young Stock
ton attorney, is chairman of the carnival
committee and is laboring hard to keep his
various sub-committees alive to the
amount of work that is before them. A
number of floats have already been planned
by the committee. That for the Queen of
the carnival was designed by Kahn, the
scenic artist, who is here arranging the
scenery for the production of the "Chimes
of Normandy" by the Euphonic Club.
Fred Urban, the stage director, has also
lent his services, snd is planning the ar
rangement of various floats. One of these
will represent Washington crossing the
Delaware, another the throwing overboard
of the tea in Boston harbor in the pre
revolutionary days; still another will rep
resent the landing of Columbus, while the
representatives of the American Protec
tive Association are preparing a little red
schoolhouse for their float.
Stockton is intensely American and the
chief objects for illustration will be events
marking eras in the history of this country.
Many other very pretty and some decided
ly unique designs will be carried out. A
very large catamaran that is capable of
carrying some seventy people will be con
verted into the likeness of an immense
flower, while seated amidst its petals Co
lumbia will rule over the merry throng on
board. This will be one of the probable
floats and will be one among many sim
ilarly prepared. Several wealthy gentle
men are arranging one to represent the
Army and Navy, which promises to be de
cidedly attractive.
The contest for the queen of the carnival
is creating a lively interest among the bet
ter classes here. To-day Miss Grace Welsh
leads the contest. She is the daughter of
the head of one of the large flour manu
facturers here and is a charming girl. Miss
Gertrude Elliott, who is second in the race,
is a regal beauty and a highly accom
plished girl, who will make an ideal queen
if chosen. She has a splendid figure and
a sweet face, full of womanly dignity and
intelligence. Third in the race for the
queenly throne is Miss Gertrude Kierski, a
lovely girl with a perfect figure and an at
tractive face. She has a charming manner
and the happy faculty of making friends.
Toward the close of the contest the com
petition will be still keener, and the friends
of the young ladies mentioned, who are all
favorites in social circles, will rally to their

Miss Edna Cole Wins After an Exciting
PASO ROBLES, Cal., June 28.— faso
Robles' election of a Goddess of Liberty,
to reign on the Fourth of July, has
ended, and Miss Edna Cole has won
the coveted honor. The result was a
surprise to the friends of Miss Cole's
rivals. Up to within a short time preced
ing the close of the polls Miss Millie Lad
ner led by a fair plurality; but as the end
drew near Miss Cole's friends rallied to her
support, and when the count was com
pleted she was found to be 93 votes in the
lead. Miss Cole is assistant postmistress
at the Paso Robles office and is a great
Elaborate preparations are being made
for the celebration. The propramme will
include a parade, which promises to be an
interesting one. Literary exercises will
follow, Thomas Rhodes having been se
cured to deliver the oration of the
day. At noon there will be a
barbecue, at which hundreds will be feast
ed. The afternoon programme includes a
baseball game between the Santa Maria
and Paso Robles nines; bicyle events,
races for sprinters, boys, girls and fat
men and horse races. Good prizes have
been hung up for these events, and lively
competition is anticipated.
The celebration will conclude with a ball
in the evening.
The Outlaw Confined In a
Prison From Which Escape
Is Unlikely.
His Capture Brought About by
Means of a Letter Written to
Jailer Saxe.
FRESNO. Cal., June 28.— Sheriff West
fall of Madera County arrived here to-day
with "Jim" Laweon, the outlaw and
would-be wife-mnrderer, who was cap
tured yesterday in Amador County. He
has twice broken jail, and has
given the officers a hot chase.
The Madera officers fear to trust him
again in their jail, and he has therefore
been brought here, where several of Ma
dera's most desperate criminals are now
confined. Lawson is very surly, and will
not talk of his experiences while eluding
the officers.
Lawson 's capture was brought about by
his foolishness. He thinks a great deal of
his mountain ranch, and his curiosity to
know something about it and also to hear
something of his wife and children was
the cause of his falling again into
the hands of the officers. When Lawson
was in jail in Madera a strong friendship
between him and Jailer Saxe sprung up,
and a few days ago Saxe received the fol
lowing letter from Lawson. dated at Ply
mouth. June 22:
Mr. Bud Socks— Kind Friend: As you are
aware, I got away and fooled that thing of
myne. What did she do after I left? What, did
the people say? How is my wife? is she in the
hospltle yet or has 6he goan to Utah or
is she with Daulton, is sne at the ranch?
Please let me know for God sake,
Please let me know all you know. You prom
ised that you would. My health is all shat
tered. lam so nervous I can hardly write. Do
you think they would cinch me if I cubic back.
I would like to save my homestead. Please
write soon. Address George A. Upton, Ply
mouth. Your affectionate friend. J. L.
Saxe informed Sheriff Westfall and the
latter had the jailer answer the letter.
The Sheriff then went to Plymouth. The
plan was that Lawson was to be arrested
when he called at the postoffice for the
letter. It is supposed that his capture was
effected in this manner.

Result of the Normal
School Inquiry at
San Jose.
Resignations of Two Accepted
and Others Given Leaves
of Absence.
Objects to Easterners When In
structors Are Chosen to Fill
the Vacancies.
SAN JOSE, Cal., June 28.— When Chair
man French called the Board of Normal
School Trustees to order this morning,
the Gordian knot had been severed, and
there was a look of relief upon the face of
each member.
It was announced the vexatious question
of what to do with the resignations had
been acted upon in the following manner:
The resignations of Miss Elizabeth Bucking
ham and Miss Lora Scudamore had been ac
cepted. Mrs. Elizabeth P. Wilson and Miss
Marj' P. Adams were each granted a year's
absence. Vice-Principal George Kleeber
ger was also granted a year's leave of ab
sence. Principal Childs and the remain
der of the faculty, with the exception of
Miss Anna C. Gildea. were re-elected at the
same salaries they have been receiving.
The board then adjourned to witness the
normal graduation exercises.
When at 2 o'clock the board reconvened
all the members were suffering from alack
of sleep on account of the all-night ses
sion and were anxious to get through with
the work.
The rirst. action taken was the election
of a teacher of mathematics to take the
place made vacant by the resignation of
Miss Scudamore. W. E. Rollane, a gradu
ate of the University of California, was
put in nomination by State Superintendent
Black. Trustee Dinkelspiel nominated C.
C. Swaford of Petaluma, and Dr. Angell
named Professor Wooster, an Eastern ap
plicant. Governor Budd objected to the
nomination of an Eastern man if a Cali
fornian could be secured.
"I am a Californian," he said, "and want
to see Californians in our institutions."
The tirst ballot resulted: Rollane 2,
Swaford 3 and Wooster 2. Another ballot
was taken and Swaford received 4 votes
and was declared elected. Rollane re
ceived 2 votes and Wooster 1.
For the position left vacant by Miss
Buckingham, the teacher of drawing and
clay modeling, it was decided to reduce
the salary to $900. Nominations were then
called for, and Miss Wilson stated that she
had been very much impressed with the
credentials of an Eastern applicant.
"Is she an Eastern lady ? asked Gover
nor Budd.
"Yes," was the answer.
"Then that settles it." said Budd. "We
don't want her. Isn't that right. Dr.
"Yes," replied the Stanford man, "but I
prefer an Eastern oyster to one a native of
"Well," retorted the Governor, "that is
where you show your poor taste. The
California oysters are much the best, if
you get enough of them. By the way,
professor, you are an Eastern "man your
self, are you not?"
The Stanford savant was compelled to
acknowledge that he was.
Trustee Hart then placed Miss Matilda
Baker in nomination for teacher of draw
ing and clay modeling. By this time the
board had by mutual consent become
very informal in its proceedings. Whis
pered consultations were indulged in. and
every few moments two or three members
would leave the room to hold an executive
session. When they finally succeeded in
getting things mapped out satisfactorily
Chairman French called them to order,
ana, ignoring the nomination for teacher
of drawing and clay modeling, a motion
by Governor Budd to reconsider the ac
tions in fixing the salary and electing an
occupant for the position left vacant by
Miss Scudamore was carried unanimously.
The board then adjourned until 7 o'clock.
Governor Budd was not present at the
deliberations of the board this evening, he
having retiirned to Sacramento by an after
noon train. Most of the evening was spent
in executive session, at the conclusion of
which the following were elected: L. B.
Wilson, at present principal of the San
Jose High School, teacher of mathematics
and physics; Miss Hattie Corey, teacher
of drawing; Miss Matilda Baker, teacher
of English, and Miss Etta Kinney, teacher
of biology. The giving to Vice-Principal
Kleeberper of a year's leave of absence was
the result of enmity between him and the
principal, the trustees being obliged to drop
one or two others.
The Outgoing Class Addressed by Gov-
ernor Xudd.
SAN JOSE, Cal., June 28.— The gradu
ating exercises of the State Normal School
took place in the assembly hall this morn
ing. Seventy young ladies and three
young men received diplomas. The hall

ers — deadly foes of Russia— could be re
leased from Siberian prisons and would

The Philadelphia Not
Expected Until After
the Fourth.
It Is Probable the Flagship Will
Be Docked in San
Frank Frahm Dying From the Ef
fects of Injuries Received
In a Terrible Fall.
VALLEJO, Cal., June 29.— 1t is not
likely, according id the understanding of
Commander Howison, that the Philadel
phia will come up to Mare Island till after
the Fourth. The department has not sig
nified any intentions regarding the future
movements of this ship. However, it is
not thought here that there is any urgency
for services just now. It is ju.-t possible
that she may be docked and have her
bottom scraped and painted at San Fran
cisco, as the Hartford will occupy the
stone dock until July 20 at least. The
commandant bays that to take the latter
vessel out of dock to make room for the
Philadelphia at this time would be simply
throwing $3000 away. While the cost of
docking the Philadelphia and painting her
at San Francisco would be double what the
same work would cost at the yard, still the
advantage is on the bide of havinc the City
do the work if it be urgent, a* the expense
and loss would foot up three times as much
if the Hartford were undocked now. The
department has been asked to postpone
operations on the flagship until about the
22d of July, when the yard will be in
readiness to handle her, and such it is
believed will be the action of the Washing
ton officials.
There are two places the Philadelphia
may go to when overhauled— either to
Puget Pound or to Callao to relieve the
Monterey, which is still there. The latter
is thought to be its most probable destina
The Baltimore is still in Chinese waters,
and will likely remain there until the lat
ter part of August. Owing to the fact that
most of her officers and crew are Eastern
men the department is contemplating
sending her to the Eastern seaboard rather
than to Mare Island. The cost would be
about the same and it would not take
much longer. Thus a saving would be
made, in that the crew would not have
to be transported East for discharge. Sea
men when discharged at one seaboard are
sent at Government expense to the other
side if shipped there.
Another motive which will prompt the
department to have the Baltimore go out
of commission at the Ea^t is the fact that
Admiral Carpenter retires in February
next. Leaving China in August, he would
reach New York about Christmas. By the
time his ship was paid off and business
straightened out it would about bring him
to retiring time, and he would be near
It has been decided, and the work is now
under way, to excavate and Jay bare the
roof— so to call it— of the tunnel clear to
the bay. Notches will then be dug in the
outside of the rock wall and piles driven
beyond the tunnel. On these 14x14 red
wood ties will be laid, bridging the tun
nel, at distances of twenty inches. Con
crete will fill the interstices, thus making
an excellent bed for the crane.
Although the beginning of the fiscal
year has not yet arrived Mare Island is
booming. Everywhere about the yard
numbers of men are found busy. This nn
usual sight for June is due to special ap
propriations, such as for the Hartford, the
new tug and the construction of a railway
around the big dock for the steel locomo
tive crane.
Frank Frahm, the old man who had
such a terrible fall in the stone dock yes
terday, is dying. From eye-witnesses it is
learned that Frahm was at work on the
platform which has been built along the
Hartford' 3 sides to facilitate the work of
the shipwrights. The plank was being
bent into its position on the side of the
ship, and in getting back out of the way
he unconsciously stepped through an
opening in the platform, and. falling head
first, backward, he struck the edge of the
lower step of the dock, twenty-five feet
below. His skull was fractured] one arm
broken and the bone of one leg broken in
two places. He is a native of Denmark,
aged 75.
