Death of Cole K. Sibley, the Chicago
Railway Magnate, at Van
WRIGHTS, Cal., July 27. — Camp
Roache was formally opened this afternoon
with an address by Hon. A. P. Roache,
master of the State Grange, followed by
other appropriate talks ana a musical pro
gramme. The large audience was enthu
siastic and all numbers on the programme
were heartily applauded. The interest
exceeded the expectations of the promoters,
and there is no doubt of the success of the
The opening exercises were held in a
beautiful little spot, completely surrounded
by a wall of fir and redwood trees. The
ampitheater which has been prepared for
the gathering presents a picture to delight
the eyes of any lover of nature. In front
of the speaker's platform, which is covered
with canvas and tastily decorated with
evergreens, are arranged the seats in the
form of a semicircle, with here and there
a tree shooting np with branches forming
The assemblage was called to order at 3
o'clock by Chairman E. F. Adams of the
local committee from Highland Grange.
The exercises opened with the singing of
"America" by the audience, followed by
prayer by Rev. J. W. McLennan. H. W.
Gerrard sang "The Village Blacksmith,"
after which the chairman in a few words
gave the object and scope of the move
ment, with a short history of the work
done in the past. A beautiful solo was
re by Miss Dora Goodsell of Oak
land. Hon. . . T l . Roache followed with
the opening address.
"Everything in the uni/erse, without
exception, is governed by co-operative
law," he said. "The basic principle on
which the grange rests is education, a word
representing the progress of the age to
which it is related. The importance of
education can only be measured by the re
sults it achieves, the results so great and
far-reaching that the human mind can but
dimly comprehend their magnitude.
"Highland Grange, in opening this ramp
of instruction, has solved the problem of
what can be accomplished by efforts of co
operation. Here in this school we shall
receive truth without prejudice, law with
out prisons, morality without slander,
and a general scientific education."
At the close of Mr. Roaches address, a
medley was sung by the Baldwin brothers
of this place. Short speeches were made
by Professor E. A. Ross of Stanford Uni
versity, who will deliver the lectures on
economics; Alfred Holm»n of the Pacific
Rural Press, and others.
It was stated that the closing days of the
encampment would be spent at Santa
Cruz, when addresses will be made by
President Jordan of Stanford University;
Hon. J. G. Maguire, on the single tax sys
tem ; Hon. J. P. Irish and M. 1L Estee, on
the money question. Mr. Irish will de
fend the gold standard, and Mr. Estee will
speak for silver.
HORTICULTURISTS IN SESSION.
Topics of Interest to Fruit- Growers Dis
cussed at Santa Rosa.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., July 27.— Brainard
N. Rowley, a member of the State Horti
cultural Society and publisher of the Cal
ifornia Fruit-grower, presided at a meeting
of the State horticulturists yesterday.
A paper by President B. M. Lelong of
the State Horticultural Society was read
by Secretary Mackson. In it he predicted
that California as a State was destined to
become one vast fruit orchard, and that
the production of fruit would be the con
trolling industry which must eventually
govern the State. For years each grower
had been marketing his fruit independent
of hi? neighbor.
This had brought many to financial
ruin, but co-operation was now practiced
throughout the State. Our olive, he said
was the purest known, and we raised tlie
finest almonds, walnuts and raisins in the
world and yet found the product of foreign
countries served at the principal hotels
and used by well-to-do families. Here
was produced the finest of figs, jams and
jellies, and yet local consumers paid a
higher price for the imported article.
In conclusion President Lelong con
gratulated Santa Rosa upon having a so
ciety oi ladies who advocated the absolute
use of home-grown products.
Colonel Mark L. McDonald of the State
Board of Horticulture strongly indorsed
Mr. Lelong's views.
Mr. Rowley stated that a machine had
been put in use by the American Biscuit
Company which allowed it to do away with
the Zante currants and use instead the
seedless Sultana raisin. This company
bad bought all of last year's sultanas now
on the market and would buy heavily
from next season's crop. They use, he
said, about 15,000 pounds each month.
G. N. Sanborn read a paper on the life
of the peach. Luther Burbank was called
upon for his paper on new fruits and
Bowers. He had two new creations with
him and used them in illustration of his
A general discussion followed. Con
gressman Barham gave *an interesting
talk on fruit legislation and transporta
tion. E. D. Sweetzer, editor of the So
noma County Farmer, read a paper on co
operation of fruit - growers. President
Hart of the Sonoma County Fruit Ex
thange talked briefly on the proper grad
ing of fruit and the necessity of putting up
% first-class article, and after discussing
the different methods of cooking dried
fruits the meeting came to an end.
LUCK OF A SEATTLE WOMAN.
A Verdict for $97 ,000 Against an Insur-
SEATTLE, Wabh., July 27.— The jury in
the case of Mrs. Guy C. Phinney against
the New York Mutual Life Insurance
Company, which has been on trial in the
Federal court several days, this afternoon
returned a verdict for the plaintiff for
$7,000. Mrs. Phinney had brought suit
The insurance company refused to pay
the amount of the policy on the death of
suy C. Phinney, who was at one time a
prominent real-estate operator in this city,
jn the ground that the policy had been
forfeited by reason of non-payment of pre
taium. Phinney paid the first premium,
Dut, according to the defense, when the
lecond matured he failed to pay it, but of
fered his note instead. This the company
refused to accept. The insurance company
also alleged that Phinney had misrepre
sented the condition of his health at the
time of taking out the policy, it being al
leged that he drank intoxicants to excess.
On the other hand, the plaintiff main
tained that the company had got hold
of Phinney's insurance policy and declared
it forfeited in an underhand manner,
through the representations of the local
manager of the company. The verdict is
in the nature of a surprise to insurance
men, and an appeal will oe taken.

COALINGA OIL FIELDS,
Rich Beds in the Coast
Range Foothills to
SELMA MEN INTERESTED.
Formation of a Company That

By the Most Primitive Methods
Farmers Have Secured Abun
SELMA, Cal., July 27.— A company is
being formed here for the purpose of de
veloping the rich oil beds believed to un
derly the foothill land in the Coast Range
owned by Selma people.
Near Coalinga, in the extreme south
western part of Fresno County, A. Barican,
a merchant, and Milton McWhorter, a
Methodist evangelist and newspaper man,
who is known throughout the State in con
nection with the Sunset Irrigation district,
own land in the foothills. A streak of oil
rock crops out on this land. It has been
prospected with pick and shovel, and such
surface work as could be done with the
most primitive tools. In this way A.
Baricau has secured many gallons of lubri
cating oil, which comes from nature's
laboratory all ready for use. Many well
known farmers in this vicinity have used
it in the past season on their machinery,
and pronounce it superior to the com
The petroleum, which has been secured
in the same primitive way, is black and
odirous, but barns well, and could be
made available for fuel without refining.
A sample has been sent to the iiast to be
Not long ago Mr. McWhorter was at
tempting to refine some of the oil obtained
on h.s land, when an "iplosion occurred,
followed by a fire, and he lost his house and
com' nts. Undaunted by this misfortune,
he i itends to put up a refinery near the
"prospect" and proceed with the work of
In the same vicinity natural gas has
been discovered. A jjett t in a fissure by the
roadside, accidentally lighted by a smok
er's match, burned for days, a weird torch
in a lonely and unfrequented region.
It is to develop this promising oil pros
pect that the Selma company ia being
formed. Captain Barrett, a capitalist who
came from the East a few years ago and
invested in land near Selma, and on which
he has placed some handsome improve
ments, is a promoter of mining and other
He has associated with him ex-Governor
Campbell of Ohio and other prominent
Eastern capitalists. The company, of
which he is the resident manager, has built
a dam near old Fort Millerton for the pur
pose of turning the San Joaquiu to secure
the wealth always believed to be hidden
in the sands of the "hole" at the mouth of
Fine Gold Gulch. The company now pro
poses to utilize the dam for the purpose of
generating electricity for light and power.
The dam is but twenty-five miles from
Fresno, and the scheme seems a feasible
Captain Barrett, Captain McClurg and
W. D. Lagrange, all of whom have had ex
perience in oil development in the oil
regions of Ohio, recently visited the Baricau
land and were more that satisfied with the
prospect. The company now being formed
includes these gentlemen, together with
other experts and capitalists. A plant
will be procured and two or three experi
mental wells sunk within a short time.
SAN MATEO ASSESSMENTS.
Heavy in the Valuation of the
REDWOOD CITY, Cal., July 27.— At
the final meeting of the Board of Equali
zation to-day, $203,875 was added to the
assessment roll on account of additional
personal property recently found by As
sessor Hayward to bo subject to taxation.
Mary K. Hopkins, wife of Timothy Hop
kins of Menlo Park, was thus assessed for
$100,000; Georgiana 8. Hopkins, wife of E.
N. Hopkins, was also assessed for $100,000,
and five minor heirs, for whom E. N. Hop
kins is guardian, were assessed for a total
of $3875, all on notes, stocks and bonds
owned by the several persons. These
amounts were accepted as correct by the
representatives of the Hopkins interests.
At a previous meeting of the board the
Assessor stated that as Emily B. Hopkins,
widow of Moses Hopkins, deceased, had
not returned a statement of personal prop
erty he wished to make an arbitrary assess
ment, and asked the board to allow him an
attorney, so that proper action could be
taken in case of contest. In this matter a
compromise was agreed upon, and Mrs.
Hopkins consented to an assessment of
$184,560 on stocks and bonds of the South
ern Pacific Company. With the assess
ment made to-day these various Hopkins
interests will thus pay taxes on $388,425,
represented by notes, stocks and bonds.
The assessment on W. 08. Macdon
ough's horse Ormonde also came up to-day,
and was reduced from $25,0U0 to $10,000. '
NO WATER FOR ALTA DISTRICT.
Irrigation Tract* Suffer Because of the \
Rapid Lowering of Kings River. '
TRAVER, Cal., July 27.— "Where ; can
we get water to irrigate with?" is a ques
tion that will soon confront the fruit
growers in the Alta and other irrigation
districts whose ditches are filled from the
waters of Kings River.
The snow on the western slopes of the
Sierras, where the Kings finds its source,
is nearly all melted, and the water is be
coming low in the river.
This, of course, diminishes the supply in
the irrigating ditches, and in this (Alta)
district the directors have given notice
that the ditches will all be closed after
August 10. If no more water can be pro
cured after that until the fall rains com
mence it will have a disastrous effect upon
the younger trees and vines, and what to
do to avert the impending drought is puz
zling the farmers.
ADMISSION DAY AT GILROY.
Preparations for an Elaborate Celebra
tion Under Way.
GILROY, Cal., July 27.— Gilroy pro
poses to celebrate Admission day jointly
with the surrounding towns. At a mass
meeting of citizens presided over by Mayor
Casey a ways and means committee
of twelve was appointed to canvass the
township for subscriptions. Without much
effort $500 was raised the first day. The
report at next meeting is expected to be
favorable, when elaborate preparations
will be made for the event.
The exercises will extend over two days.
Firemen will have running contests with
hosecarts the first day and cyclists will try
their speed over the level roads the second
day. Prizes will be awarded to the win
ners. The firemen of Hollister, Watson
ville, Santa Cruz, Salinas, Monterey and
Gilroy, with the wheelmen of these towns,
together with the clubmen of San Jose,
are expected to be the contestants. An at
tractive procession, with other entertain
ing exercises, are in prospect.
WILSON AT SEATTLE.
The Senator Says the Silver Question I*
SEATTLE, Wash., July United
States Senator John L. "Wilson, who was in
this city to-day, said in an interview that
in traveling ; about the country he had
found less talk about silver, and he be
lieved the question was dying out. Times
are better and there is more' general pros
perity than a year ago.
Senator Wilson does not believe that
there will be a split in either the Republi
can or Democratic parties over the silver
question, ana believes the Republican
party will not go into the silver issue far
ther than it has already gone. In the mat
ter of Presidential timber the Senator says
there is plenty of it. McKinley is a good
man, so is Tom Reed, and ex-President
Harrison is one of the ablest statesmen in
the Republican party, while Senator Alli
son is all right. Senator Wilson declares
he has no Presidential preferences. He is
now on his annual tour about the State
and left to-day for Skagit County.
OZETTE RIVER SALMON.
Captain Ward Will Pack His Catch in
Bins on the Beach.
SEATTLE, "Wash., July 27. — Captain
Ward of this city is outfitting a schooner
to engage in salmon-fishing in Ozette
River, which empties into the Pacific near
Cape Flattery. He expects to get the
schooner over the bar at the mouth of the
river at high tide and then anchor inside,
free from the heavy surf, which is a men
ace to all kinds of "craft on Flattery coast.
Once inside he will fish for salmon as they
ascend the stream, and will pack them
away, salted in bins, on the beach. The
business is something new for a fishing
fleet, and it is believed will be surer pay
than fresh fißh, which often spoil before a
market port can be reached.
MOODY GULCH LITIGATION.
Appointment of a Receiver
for Valuable OH
Santa Clara Citizens Subscribe to
an Advertising Fund— A New
SAN JOSE, Cal., July 27.— Suit was
commenced to-day by D. B. Moody et al.
against Charles J. Ellis and C. C. Mclver
for an accounting of the product of an oil
well in Moody Gulch, above Los Gatos.
In December, 1888, the plaintiffs leased
to the Santa Clara Petroleum Company a
tract of land known as Moody Gulch, in
which large deposits of oil had been dis
covered. The lease was for ten years, and
the company was to sink oil wells and de
velop the property, the owners of the land
to receive one-tenth of the output. The
company sold out to R. C. McPherson,
who renewed the lease for ten yers. Two
years later McPherson transferred his in
terest to C. J. Ellis, and he agreed to carry
out the terms of the contract.
The plaintiffs now charge that since
June 25, 1890, Ellis has been taking out 160
barrels of oil per month, and has made no
accounting to them. ? They further . claim •
that the oil on the premises is worth $3 73
a barrel, and that there is due them not
less than $3600. It is charged that Ellis
has threatened to remove the machinery
from the place, and the plaintiffs asked
that an injunction be issued restraining
him from so doing, and that the defendant
be compelled to render an accounting.
Judge Reynolds issued a temporary in
junction and appointed Smith Peck as re
ceiver. -' ,

tectives to Watch Miss
Madly Jealous of the Woman Upon
Whom He Lavished Stolen
TACOMA, Wash., July 27.— A hidden
page in the life of the late Paul Schulze,
who stole a quarter of a million dollars
from the Northern Pacific Railroad and
blew out his brains in April, when the dis
covery was at hand, came to light to-day.
Thiei's detective agency filed claims in
the Probate Court against the Schulze
estate aggregating $4146 91.
The attorney refuses to state for what
consideration the notes were given, but to
night it was learned from Schulze's friends
that they were for services of a detective
in following Marie Wainwright, the act
ress, about the country last year and in
1893. Schulze was an ardent admirer of
Miss Wainwright, on whom he lavished
costly presents. When she was in this
State his private oar was at her disposal.
Sbe was here during the entire summer of
1891. Schulze, who was believed to have
been desperately jealous, had a man fol
low her and watch her every movement.
RIVERSIDE COUNTY TIN MINES.
A Report That They Will Again Be Put
ALESSANDRO, Cal., July 27.— Mining
in Riverside County is not now so brisk as
earlier in the year, but the mills at all the
larger mines are kept running, and a great
deal of prospecting is being done. The
McHaney mine, near Indio, has 100 tons
of $200 ore on the dump, and is about to
put it through a mill which, it is under
stood, is now on the ground.
The famous Good Hope mine is in the
hands of Receiver A. H. Naftzger of
Riverside, and no report of its affairs has
yet been made.
Considerable prospecting is being done
on the Temescal tin-mine property, and
several gold mines have been located by
employes of the company sent out for
prospecting purposes. Rumors that these
will be worked by the company are afloat,
and it is also said that the tin mines will
again be put in operation.
Fertile Banehoa to Be IHvided Into Small
Tract* for Settlers.
ALESSANDRO, Cal., July 27. -A
scheme is on foot to colonize the Paubo
rancho lands near Temecula. This prop
erty belongs to the San Francisco Savings
Union, and has been surveyed and water
impounded for irrigation purposes. It
will be sold out in small tracts to those
desiring to raise fruit and alfalfa, and
many desirable residents will thus be
added to Riverside County's popnlation.
The ranchos of Temecula and Pauba
contain some 28,000 acres of fertile land.
Probably half is mesa and above the water^
line, but fully 5000 acres can be put under
water for alfalfa and fruit raising pur-
Doses. The ranchos lie along the Santa
Fe track on its Temecula branch, which is
now being extended over its old line to
Fallbrook and will ultimately be rebuilt to
Oceanside and connect there with the surf
line to San Diego.
KNOWN IN PORTLAND.
Varied Career of the Man Who Killed
PORTLAND, Ob., July 27.— "Con" Sul
livan, the slayer of Clarence Barr, the San
Francisco Chinatown guide, had a varied
career in Oregon, where he operated swin
dling schemes of various kinds. The claim
of Henderson, alias Sullivan, that he killed
a man in Portland is an empty boast.
Three years ago, when Sullivan was here
with a man named Clark, they had a fall
ing out over a division, of spoils. Clark
Jay in ambush for Sullivan one night on
Fourth street and almost brained him
with a revolver. He also struck him on
the arm, burying the hammer of the re
volver in the flesh. Sullivan eventually
recovered from the terrible gash in his
head. From here he went to San Fran
cisco. Local detectives who have seen
Henderson say he is Sullivan without a

VANCOUVER, B. C, July 27.-Burglary
and robbery seem to be running another
course in this city. Several West End resi
dences have been entered during the past
few days and jewelry and other valuables
Last night W. J. McCuskar was waylaid
on Dufferin street and two masked men
relieved him of his watch and $800. Mc-
Cuskar was to have been married this
morning, but owing to being bruised
about the head and otherwise incapaci

until this afternoon.
SANTA BARBARA HEROES.
Daring Venture of Four Boys
in Aid of an Imperiled
Spent a Night at Sea In a Frail Boat
While a Storm Was
SANTA BARBARA, Cai,., July 27.—
Members of the camping party on Santa
Cruz Island returning on the recent trip
of the sloop Restless, tell the other side of
the story of the sloop's recent wreck, which
caused such uneasiness on the mainland,
and their story reflects honor on the Santa
Barbara boys composing the party, while
revealing for the first time that even
greater anxiety waa experienced on the
island the night of the 17th than here.
A large number of the campers were at
supper when a small boy, who had been
idly watching the sloop sailing away on her
return voyage, suddenly cried out that she
had disappeared. Fire of the boys who
had just sat down to their meal, hungry
and tired, leaped across the table, darted
down to their skiff and started for the
scene of the supposed disaster.
A high sea prevailed and the little skiff
was a frail craft to meet it. Mr. McDuffie
followed as fast as he could, and insisted
that two of the young fellows should come
back, as the little boat was overloaded. To
this Howard Broughton reluctantly ac
ceded, while Duncan AlcDuffle, Lawrence,
Hamilton and Tibbitts pressed on.
Those on shore ascended the cliff and
eagerly scanned the horizon. At one mo
ment they thought they could discern the
hulk of the Restless with her rigging gone,
but still floating right Bide up on the toss
ing sea. The next instant darkness swal
lowed np the scene, including the light
boat in which the four young heroes had
gone to the rescue.
Night dropped down with a high wind
and heavy sea, and it was not until 10
o'clock the next forenoon that the anxious
watchers on shore were gladdened by the
sight of the little boat dancing over the
waves, the fate of her young occupants
being wrapped in uncertainty all this
time. Swimming and diving to recover
the lost rigging, the boys worked until 12
that night, soaked to the skin and chilled
through and through, but in the cheeriest
spirits and without a word of complaint.
The cause of the disaster was that the
sloop carried to much sail. Had the acci
dent occurred when she was on her out
ward trip, crowded with passengers, there
is every certainty that some would have
been swept overboard and others severely
CAUSE OF TB.E EARTHQUAKE.
Scientists Assert Thmt a Bed of Natural
Oas Underlies Santa Barbara.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., July 27.— For
years a curious phenomenon has been ob
served in a certain district of Santa Bar
bara. In all this region what is known as
"local earthquakes" are of frequent and
constant occurrence, but as little damage
is ever done beyond the jarring of crockery
and splashing of fluids the inhabitants
have come to look upon them with indif
ference, and it is only lately that any sci
entific theory has been advanced to ac
count for them.
Men acquainted with such phenomena
now confidently assert that these local
agitations of the earth's surface are in all
probability caused by the pressure of an
immense volume of natural gas, a condi
tion known to be common in regions
where natural gas has been discovered in
great supply. It is urged, not unreason
ably, that any capitalist who will make the
investment required to sink say to a depth
of 2000 feet at most might be richly repaid.
The surrounding formation and the great
deposits of oil and gas in the neighboring
localities furnish favorable geologic con
ditions for an inexhaustible supply of
Arrival of the Excursionists.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., July 27.—
Seventeen hundred persons arrived at
Santa Barbara to-day by the Southern Pa
cific excursion— the passengers conveyed
hither by four trains requirine thirty
coaches. Excursionists are here from
points as far south as Riverside. There
has been no accident to mar the success of
the trip. Santa Barbara, with its crowded
streets, presents a gala spectacle.
