\ Attempted Jallbreak at
Santa Rosa.
SANTA CRUZ, Cal., July 23.— An elec
tric cycle road will soon be built between
this city and Capitola. A number of
prominent citizens are interested in the
enterprise, and in a few days a meeting of
the projectors of the road will be held and
arrangements for the formation of a stock
company made.
One of the most enthusiastic promoters
of the scheme said this evening that he
had been at work for the past eight weeks
looking at plans and visiting the different
electrical works. It is proposed to make
the railroad a people's line, and everybody
will have an opportunity to take stock.
The plans and specifications of the new
road have been drawn. It is to be elevated
from six to twenty feet with about twenty
foot spans, and will bear at least eleven
tons of pressure. The cars will be four
feet ten inches wide and fifty-two feet long,
with a seating capacity of fifty-four' pas
sengers. The car will be supported by two
thirteen-inch wheels, flanged in the center
and resting on a T rail with bearings un
derneath. The trolley will be underneath
the car.
The new road will be built on the L. C.
Presley railway system, engineered by D.
E. Condon, the builder of the San Fran
cisco City Hall dome. The cars will carry
freight as well as passengers. A speed of
at least seventy miles an hour will be at
tained. This line will be very beneficial to
the residents of Capitola, Santa Cruz and
Soquel, and to the people at the summer
resorts, Sea Bright, Twin Lakes and Santa
Maria del Mar, situated between this city
and Capitola.
ATTACK ON A PASADENA MAN.
An Attempt to End A. W. Halt's Life
With a Knife-Thrust.
PASADENA, Cal., July 23.— A. W. Halt.
while returning to his home in the suburbs
of Pasadena last evening, was attacked by
an unknown man and slashed with a knife
across the back of his head. Halt's coat
was badly cut in several places, but he par
ried the vicious thrusts of his assailant
with a heavy cane, and finally succeeded
in driving the fellow off.
Two days ago Halt received the following
letter:
Halt: This is the third and last warning. If
you dare stop here, you scab, the A. R. U. will
burn you, Martin and Mure up for your dirty
work, yet the S. P. cant save one of* you. Or
ganized labor will wreck all of XJ. Ur time is
up; leave at once or die. U cant railroad here-
Death is for all 3, you first. Ur not wanted in
Pasadena.
Halt's injuries are not serious. The po
lice • are engaged in a search for his as
sailant.
ADMISSION DAY AT REDDING.
Preparing for a Fitting Celebration of
the Event.
REDDING, Cal., July 23.— Admission
day, 1895, will be a red-letter day in the
history of Redding. Preparations are
now being made for a two-days' celebration
and field day events for the 9th and 10th
of September. On the 9th there will be
football and baseball in the morning, and
during the afternoon and evening a
society circus, the actors and actresses to
be drawn from the Four Hundred of this
city, will be held under an immense tent.
A menagerie will be in connection, to
gether with all the sideshows, museums,
etc., that usually accompany a traveling
circus. - y ': vt'.-y
The second day will be given entirely to
field sports of all kinds. In the evening
there will be a ball. Two parades will be
arranged, and other features will assist in
making the celebration one of the grandest
ever held in Shasta County.
The selection of a Miss to personate
California will be decided by voting, the
most popular young lady to preside over
the celebration.
COLUMBIA BIVER TRAFFIC.
Seattle and Taeoma Moving to Establish
, a Line of Steamers.
SEATTLE, Wash., July 23.—Negotia
tions are going on in this city and Taeoma
looking to the establishment of a line of
steamers to be operated on the Columbia
River, in conjunction with the Oregon and
Washington Railway, better known as the
Hunt system. The principal object of the
scheme is to give relief to wheat-growers
of Eastern Washington and Oregon, thus
releasing them in a measure from the
clutches of the road now monopolizing the
traffic. .".".*-
P. F. Mohr, a well-known railroad man,
appears to be engineering the scheme to
give oppressed agriculturalists an outlet
to the sea for their products. Yesterday
and to-day he was in conference at Taeoma
with W. D. Tyler, president and , general
manager of the Hunt road. The Oregon
and Washington road taps the great grain
belt of Eastern Washington and connects
with the Columbia River at Wallula.
FOILED BY SONOMA'S SHERIFF.
Plans of Prisoners- to Escape From Jail
Miscarried.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., July 23.— Sheriff
Allen and his deputies frustrated the
clever scheme of a number of hard charac
ters confined in jail here to escape.
The prisoners planned to break through
one of the corridor doors and then break
through the ceiling as Bruggy and others
did when they made their famous escape
a few months ago. If that failed they
were to conceal themselves in a dark
toilet-room, and when the night watchman
came to lock up the prisoners they were to
throw red pepper in his eyes, grab him,
lock him up in a cell and make their way
out easily. Sheriff Allen learned about
the scheme in time to thwart it. The
prisoners have been working on the plan
for some time, and it is believed would
nave killed the watchman had they found
it necessary, as some of them are desperate
and determined criminals. .
TROUBLE IN MARQUAM GULCH.
Alien Settlers Evicted by a Force of Deputy
Marshals.
PORTLAND, Ob., July 23.— Bloodshed
was threatened to-day in Marquam Gulch,
between squatters on 0. R. and N. prop
erty and a force of deputy United States
Marshals, who were carrying out orders
to drive squatters off the property. .

discouraged further demonstration.
SANTA MONICA ENCAMPMENT.',
Interesting Tests of Occult Power Made by
the Spiritualists.
SANTA MONICA, Cal., July 23.—
spiritualist campmeeting grows in interest
and numbers with each succeeding day,
over 300 delegates from all parts of the
coast, with a ; sprinkling from the East,
being in attendance. A peculiar feature
of the meeting is that those of a private
nature in the various tents are much better
attended than those at the Pavilion,
although the big tent continues to be
fairly well filled. The management of the
camp have been especially successful thus
far in securing able, fearless talkers, and in
keeping back " everything that savors of
fake.
The Rev. George W. Carpenter of Chicago
to-day delivered an able address on the
occult science of spiritualism. The morn
ing session was devoted to a medium con
ference, led by Mrs. Cowell of Oakland,
who also regaled her spiritualistic friends
with northern peaches.;
The evening services consisted of inspi
rational music by A. B. Coonley of San
Diego, a talk by "Mrs. Colwell and tests by
Dr. Schlesstnger. The tests are improving
as the camp progresses. Professor Clark,
the ballad composer and singer, is billed
for a concert on Thursday.
TOPSY GRADE'S LONE BANDIT.
Watt Pierson Held for the Klamath Falls
Stage Robberies.
KLAMATH FALLS, Ob., July 23.—
Watt Pierson, the man who was arrested
at Keno by Deputy United States Marshal
Summers, is believed to be one of the men
who held up the Klamath-Ager stage
three times in as many months. Sufficient
evidence has been collected to hold Pierson
for further investigation.
Pierson lived at Keno, a small place on
the stage line, about eighteen miles from
the scene of the repeated robberies. On
the niaht of the last robbery he was absent
from home and gave a very unsatisfactory
account of his absence. He was seen re
turning early the following morning.
THE DISASTER AT ANGELS
Fire in the Utica Mine Sub-
dued by Flooding the
Shafts.
Eighty Workmen Were Overcome
by Gas and Had a Narrow Es
cape From Death.
ANGELS CAMP, Cal., July 23.— The
fire in the Utica mine was subdued this
morning, and to-night a less despondent
feeling prevails. The enormous streams
of water which have been poured into the
mine since Sunday have flooded it to a
depth of fifty feet above the 800-foot level, 1
where the fire started and the shafts were
unsealed. . .
An exciting scene was witnessed at the
Utica north shaft when the bulkhead was
being removed. The gas which ascended
was so intense as to overpower eighty men.
One employe, William Gillrooney, was
knocked out by the fumes seven times.
Superintendent Tom T. Lane, who was at
the front directing operations, was also
overcome.
It is estimated that 40,000,000 gallons of
watar is in the mine. This afternoon work
was begun to get this out. How long it
will take to eet the mine dry is beyond cal
culation. Three extra pumps are to be set
up to push operations as soon as possible.
The waste pipes and ditches are booming
with the rush of water which is being
taken out. The work of purifying the
mine is going on rapidly, and it is ex
pected that the atmosphere of the Utica
will be such that miners will be able to re
sume work at the upper level to-morrow
night.
Every idle man has been pressed into
service to clean away the debris, mend the
pipes broken by the great pressure of
water, and put "all things into running
order again. The damage will not be bo
great as was at first reported, and $25,000
will undoubtedly cover it, if no further ac
cident occurs. MR'
SANTA CRUZ ENTERPRISE
Two Sites for the Location of
a Bicycle Factory
Offered.
Business Men Will Make a Strong:
Effort to Secure the
Plant.
SANTA CRUZ, Cal., July 23.— A well
attended mass-meeting was held this even
ing in the' Superior Court room, it being
sailed by the Merchants' Association for
the consideration of a proposition in re
gard to the establishing of a bicycle fac
tory in tnis city. Duncan McPherson was
elected chairman of the meeting and A. D.
Pena secretary.
A communication from the Manufac
turers' and Producers' Association of Cali
fornia, asking what inducements would be
offered for the establishments a bicycle
factory in this city, was read. It stated
that the factory manufactured the finest
grade wheel and employed from 100 to 150
men the entire year.
A communication was read from the F.
A. Hihn Company in .which they offered
two sites of land located near this city for
factory purposes, provided improvements
were made and buildings for factory pur
poses erected. F. A. Hum's motion that a
permanent committee be appointed to look
after the proposition was carried, and these
were named: W. H. Lamb, F. A. Hihn, C.
M. Collins, A. M. Johnston, E. H. Garrett,
A. J. Hinds, J. Bernheim, Dwight Grover
and H. D. C. Barnhardt.
Speeches favoring the proposition were
made by W. H. Lamb. J. Bernheim, Dun
can Mcpherson and A. D. Pena, and the
meeting adjourned subject to call by the
committee. »
WERE TAPPING THE WIRES
Emissaries of San Francisco
Poolrooms Roughly
Handled.
Detected While Securing: the Names
of Winners In the Sacra
mento Races.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., July 23.— Two
emissaries of the San Francisco poolrooms
were caught while in the act of obtaining
the names of the winners in to-day's races
at the Bay District from the ticking of the
telegraph - instrument in ' the * Sacramento
poolrooms, and were summarily ejected
into the street.
The men were working in conjunction
with each other. One, who was evidently
an expert . operator, took the names and
wrote them on a slip of > paper, which he
passed to his confederate, who immedi
ately transmitted them ■by telephone i to
San Francisco.
Precautions have been taken to prevent

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 1895.
ON BRADY'S TRAIL.
The Bandit Closely Pur
sued by a Posse Near
Woodland.
DOUBLED ON HIS TRACK.
Officers Eluded by the Fugi
tive After an All-Day '
Chase.
ATE DINNER IN THE CITY.
He Took His Departure but a Few
Minutes Before the Pursuers
Arrived.
WOODLAND, Cal., July 23. — Brady,
the much-wanted train robber, passed
through Woodland to-night, pursued by
about every detective on the Sacramento
force.
Yesterday forenoon the Sheriff of Sacra
mento County, with one of his deputies,
was on an excursion northward on the
"Grant" with some hounds, which he in
tended to train. While they were off the
road, on foot and unarmed, a suspicious
looking stranger on a black horse rode up.
Upon appearances and general principles
the officers would have stopped him, but
before they could reach their guns the fel
low quickened his pace. The officers gave
chase, but could not keep the fugitive in
sight.
When near Sacramento they lost track
of him, and it was only after considerable
beating about that they found he had
doubled on them, taking the river road
northward.
With three deputies, Detectives Ahem
and Nick Doley and Sheriff Johnson struck
out after the stranger. They tracked him
on the Sacramento side, opposite the Cas
selman hop farm. Here they found he
had abandoned his horse and turned it
loose, and hired a woman to row him over
to the Yolo side. The horse was found by
the officers. It tallied exactly with the
description of a horse stolen in Butte
County.
When the woman was shown a picture
of Brady she at once declared that the
man whom she rowed over the river re
sembled the likeness of the murderer of
Sheriff Bogard. She described him as
having a two - weeks' growth of beard
and wearing a light flannel shirt, blue
overalls and a dark slouch hat. He
carried a bundle wrapped in canvas, such
as might have concealed an amputated
shotgun. She said he was nervous and
kept looking back, as though fearing he
would be followed.
The Sacramento officers renewed the
chase. They crossed over to the Yolo side
and tracked their man to Elkhorn, thence
in the direction of Woodland. It was
nearly 9 o'clock when the officers pulled
into Woodland. : " -i:
Here they learned that a stranger tally
ing to a dot to the description of their man
had, a half-hour before, eaten his supper
at the : Doose restaurant in this city. He
left the saloon counter immediately after
eating and disappeared.
Sheriffs Griffin and Johnson held a coun
sel of war. The officers scattered, and
began a close search for clews that would
| indicate the direction that the pursued
I- had taken.
The horse which the bandit abandoned
has been identified as the one stolen by
Brady from a farmer near Gridley several
days ago.
FRUIT-GROWERS IGNORED.
The Rational Association Rejects the
Californians' Proposition.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., July 23.—
California Fruit Transportation Company
to-night dispatched another train of fruit
for the London market. It was carefully
selected and good returns are expected.
For some days the National Fruit Asso
ciation has been considering a proposition
from the California Fruit Growers' and
Shippers' Association for a compromise in
the matter of New York auction sales, the
proposition being to avoid rivalry by hold
ing sales on alternate days. To-night
Manager Fairbank of the National in
formed the president of the California as
sociation that his association had refused
to accept the proposition.
TROUBLE AT THE CAPITOL
The Board of Fish and Game
Commissioners Involved
in a Muddle.
Probable Action on the Subpenas
Issued for Emerlc and
Murdock.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., July 23.— A meet
ing of the Board of Fish and Game Com
missioners has been called, to be held in
San Francisco next Monday, and it is
rumored that some action will be taken
upon the matter of subpenas which have
been issued by the Board of Examiners re
quiring the appearance of Commissioners
Emeric and Murdocfc before the latter body
to explain items presented in late claims
for legal services rendered by an attorney
in defending a deputy against whom legal
action had been taken for arresting two
men for alleged illegal fishing. It is
claimed that although the Commissioners
were well, aware that their appearance
would be required before the board, having
read the account of the meeting in the
columns of the press, they saw fit ,to treat
the mandates of . the board with seeming
contempt by leaving the city before papers
could be served. "...-."'
Fish , Commissioner Morrison said -to
night that while he had received notice
that a meeting of the commission was to
be held next Monday he was not ' aware
what the nature of the "confab" would be,
as the notice was ■ merely a formal one.
When questioned as to what action would ;
likely be taken by Commissioners Emeric
and Murdock, he replied that he knew
absolutely nothing of the matter and con
sequently was unable to make any state
ment, even if so inclined. ;As for the items
in the : Commissioners' claim, he was en
tirely ignorant \ as to > the method or cause
of their being contracted, ; other than by
hearsay.
Santa Barbara Stabbing Affair.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., July 23.— A
man named Vasquez made 'an • assault on
Eugene R. Foxen with a pocket-knife last
nicht. -Vasquez cut Foxen six times, once
on the right- breast and five times in the
back. Foxen had on at the time of the as
sault - two heavy y coats, which doubtless
saved his life. Vasquez is now in jail a
charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
It is said Vasquez had no provocation for
the assault. " .

FRESNO, Cal., July Word was re
ceived here to-day that • on ', Sunday Cliff
Regan, the outlaw for whom the officers
have been hunting for months, went to a
farmhouse on the San Joaquin River and

the officers could not be notified in time to
catch him. , 'y.
Carelessness Caused La Patera Disaster.
. SANTA BARBARA, Cal., July 24.-
Birch, a miner injured in the La Patera
asphalt mine explosion yesterday morning,
was not so seriously injured as at first re
ported. His hands, neck and ears are
badly blistered. Birch was brought to

The accident was caused by Birch's own
carelessness in entering the mine contrary
to rules with a lighted candled.

CAPTURED A SEAHORSE
A Strange Marine Monster
Lassoed in Long Island
Sound.
Its Captor Will Now Turn His Atten-
V tion to the Cold Spring Harbor
Sea Serpent.
NORTHPORT, N. V., July 23.— One day
last week James Kirby, a member of the
oyster firm of Ackerly & Co. ■ of
Northport, L. 1., captured, after a long
struggle, a seahorse, a rare specimen for
these waters. It was first noticed by the
deckhands on Mr. Kirby's oyster-boat
Alberta. Mr. Kirby secured a hawser,
which he threw with great skill, and after
three attempts laid it over the head of the
seahorse, and with the aid of the crew
pulled it on the steamer.
Mr. Kirby has become so elated over his
success that he is going to try and capture
the sea serpent in the same way. , Stories
of the serpent being seen off Eatons Neck
in Long Island and in Cold Spring Harbor
have been in daily circulation of late, an d
Mr. Kirby hopes to add new laurels to his
fame by capturing it. He has purchased
a new breech-loading gun, which he in
tends to use should the serpent appear.
As the oyster season is nearly over, he
expects to fit out the steamer with a week's
rations and organize a party among his
friends to traverse the sound from end to
end. BfflßlfflSl /
LOOTED THE LOCAL SAFE.
Robbers Held Up the Lake Shore Express
Train.
UNION DEPOT, TOLEDO, Ohio, July
24.— The Lake Shore, New York and Chi
cago express, westbound, was held up a
few minutes after midnight at a blind
siding between Archibald 'and Stryker.
The men were unable to get .into the
through safe and no crt was made to
molest the passengers. •
The point where the • hold-up occurred
is called Recce. The switch was thrown,
showing a red light, and Engineer Mike
Tiernan stopped his train just as this
point was reached. At this moment his
headlight was shot out and two men with
revolvers jumped aboard. At the same
time an entrance was effected through a
window of the express car. The robbers
placed a sentinel at the rear of the train
and the crew were not allowed to leave the
cars.
Conductor Darling was ordered to keep
still and the work was done in a thor
oughly scientific manner. The contents of
the safe cannot be learned, but the amount
was not large. The road officials were
notified in a singular manner. Two
tramps who were on the pilot jumped off
when the train began to slacken. They
ran to Archibald and gave the alarm.
General Superintendent Canniff, Assistant
General Superintendent Blodgett ana Chief
Detective Robinson, with 'a', party, have
just left for the scene by a special train.
BULLETS FOR A REPORTER.
An Ex-City Official Went Gunning on a
Streetcar.
BALTIMORE, Md., July 23.— Leslie
Duvall, Assistant City . Comptroller, to
day stampeded a carload of passengers on
the traction line by waving a revolver and
threatening to kill William D. Burroughs,
a reporter on the Morning Herald, who
was a passenger in the car. Duvall was
recently removed from office because of an
investigation into his department by a
committee appointed by the City Council.
He has been severely handled by the
Evening ; World and threatened to shoot
the writer of the caustic articles. He mis
took Burroughs for the World reporter,
and, had the conductor not restrained
Duvall, Burroughs would probably have
received the bullet. The passengers
scrambled out , of . the car, the intended
victim, who was unaware of his danger,
among them. A warrant is out for the
arrest of the ex-City Comptroller.

atives 309, Unionists 55, Liberals 129, Mc-
Carthyites 56, Parnellites 9.
:;",' On to-day's return the Conservatives
have gained three seats, the Unionists one
and the Parnellites one. Among the de
feated "' candidates are ' the " Labor leaders
Tom Mann and Clem Edwards, who shared
the fate of many of -their fellows. ,y Mann

The Liberals won with a smaller majority
than they had in 1892, and Mann was
third : in the race with 1245 votes.
■ Clem Edwards had the Liberal and Labor
