FIRE POURING FORTH
The Olympic Volcano Is
Now in Ceaseless
seen sixty miles away
thousands at port townsend
Witness the Workings of
blazes started by lava.
A Party of Mountain-Climbers
to Start for the Scene of
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Oct. 21.—
Interest in the recently discovered volcano
in tho Olyi ' Mountains, a short dis
tance fr^ni here, continues without abate
ment, ami last night thousands of people
witnessed the workings of the phenomenon
from eminei - about the city. Early
evening fonnd the crater very dim, but
from 8 o'clock mtil daylight the lurid jet
could be .se> with the naked eye
spurting hi he air and throwing a
beautiful glow into the clouds. To-day,
owing to the thick smoke, the crater is not
visible from here.
The few who were skeptical when the
news was tlrsi !>rought into town are now
thorough!}' convinced, and to-morrow
morning at daylight a large party of
mountain - .limbers will leave for the
scene, guided by Messrs. Pettygrove and
Chappell, who were three miles away
when the tirst eruption occurred.
According to the statement? of these
men the volcano began to spout flames
and lava Saturday night while they were
camped three miles distant from the scene.
The two were peacefully slumbering when
they were awakened by a loud report and
a terrible shaking of the earth, followed by
a streak of tire, which was sent high into
the air and was accompanied by a hissing,
sizzling sound. The disturbance stopped
as suddenly as it began, and all was still
for fully twenty minutes. Then it was re
peated, and since then the eruption? have
On the night of its first appearance Pet
tygrove and Chappell remained in silent
■wonder until the extrerm' heat and thick
sulphur smoKe compelled them to make a
retreat to a point several miles farther
away from the crater, and the next morn
ing they made all haste to town, arriving
late Saturday night
The scene of the disturbance is sixty
miles from here, in the third chain of the
Olympic Mountains. People here believe
the outpouring is a natural sequence of
the recent earthquake shocks which have
been felt in this vicinity for some weeks.
The result of the investigating party's
tour will be awaited with interest.
Last night the pyrotechnic spectacle wa3
watched through powerful glasses by a
party of amateur scientists, who compute
that the injections of the molten mass into
the air occur at intervals of from three to
five seconds, and from this distance it
would appear that a steady stream of fire
wa< beine sent into the sky. Toward mid
night it became apparent that the fire from
the crater was igniting the forests in the
valleys far below the snow line, as smoke
in great volume was noticeable. Of course
it is impossible as yet to determine the
cause of the disturbance, but farmers from
the vicinity coming to town to-day aver
that the top of the mountain is redhot and
that lava flakes are settling over the straits,

PALOMARES WATER SUIT
The Pomona Land and Water
Company Accused of
Land^Owners Who Claim They
Have Been Mulcted by the
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 21.— Some
time ago certain of the stockholders of the
Pomona Land and Water Company organ
ized the Palomares Irrigation Company,
and the latter company issued to those
individuals <>000 shares of stock.
These gentlemen sold a quantity of
land under the Palomares ditches,
and issued 100 shares of water
stock with each ten acres of land, so that
very much of those 6000 shares originalJy
issued came to be held by land-owners.
These land-owners did not, however, have
representation among the officers of the
Palomares company, which continued to
be officered by the people of the Pomona
RecentJy there was a meeting of the offi
cers of the Palomares company, and they
adopted a resolution whereby it was set
forth that a certain deed made by the Po
mona company to the Palomares com
pany, conveying to the latter water-bear
ing lands, did not express the real inten
tion of the parties; that it was intended
that at any time after the passing of the
deed the Pomona company might go upon
the lands granted and develop water and
tell it to Palomares company for 100 shares
of the latter company's stock for each inch
of water. This resolution was ratified ; but
the land-holding owners of the Palomares
Mock took no hand in it, nor knew nothing
about it. It is also alleged that the Po
mona company has surreptitiously di
verted water off the Palomares land and
sold it to the Pomona City Water Com

MISS ASH LIST'S CLAIMS.
Health Office Records to figure in her
Suit Against " Lucky" Baldwin.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 21.— A sensa
tion is likely to be sprung soon in the suit
brought against "Lucky" Baldwin by Miss
Lillian Ashley of Pasadena. . The young
woman sues. for damages for Baldwin's
failure to provide for her child, which she
claims is the daughter of the noted capi
talist and turfman. Dr. Trueworthy, the
attending physician at the time of the
birth, was looked for to-day. His office
has been abandoned, and it was learned
that he was in Europe.
Miss Ashley called upon the Health
Office in the, City Hall to-day for a birth
certificate. ClerK Earle soon found it, and
it bore the following interesting data:
Born— At 129 South Olive street, Los An-
Kelcs, December 7, 1893. a girl. Mother, Lil

Miss Ashley wanted the birth certificate
to use at her trial in San Francisco.
AFTER CHIEF GLASS.
Clash Between the Officer and the Minis
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 21.— Min
isterial Union of the city is after Chief of
Police Glass again. At its meeting to-day
it replied in forcible language to his accu
sation that the agitation of the social evil
question by the ministers had caused more
damage than the evil itself.
The ministers formed the sharp-worded
epistle into the form of a communication
for presentation to the City Council, stat
ing in substance that if the Chief had dis
charged his duties and enforced the laws
the agitation would have been stopped
Jong ago. Chief Glass' speech was charac
izea as discourteous and lacking moral
courage, untrue in the extreme and show
ing official sympathy for the criminal and
disorderly elements, and also insubordina
tion. The union petitioned the Council
that the Chief be required to do his duty or
resign to some one who will enforce the
laws of the city.
MAT HE INVESTIGATED.
An Official Suspected of "Jobbing " the
J.o* Angeles I'apers.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 21.— The Su
preme Court has decided that the $17,000,
--000 bond issue of the Market-street cable
road of San Francisco was legal. The
opinion was filed Saturday morning. The
information that the tiling had been made
was withheld in the Clerk's olrice from
both the evening papers here. Then the
decision was sent north— the only copy
that had been made of it.
The representatives of both the morning
papers ciaim that they received their in
formation that the decision was to the
effect that the bonds were invalid from
Deputy Clerk Butterworth. He in turn
denies that he gave that information. The
failure to give the news of the decision to
the evening papers and then have it incor
rectly stated in the morning papers savors
of a job. The matter may be the subject
of court investigation.

office. The Bee has declared for Steinman
and the Record-Union for Wilson, and the
war goes merrily on.
On the part of the Republican leaders it
is claimed that the First Ward will un
doubtedly give Wilson a majority, as will
also the Second. The Third is also counted
for Wilson, because within its boundaries
is incorporated a large portion of the old
Second Ward, which has been Wilson's
stronghold in former political battles. The
Fourth Ward is conceded to Steinrnan by
a small plurality, although Bart Cava
naugh, who has always claimed to control
this ward, declares that his sympathies
are with Wilson.
Cavanaugh says that although personally
he has resigned all interest in politics and
has become a peaceful rancher and hop
grower in the wilds of this American River
district, still, if necessary, he could buckle
on his armor and in a week carry every
thing his way.
The uptown wards are doubtful.

test for State Senator, in which he claims
to have achieved a victory.
It is also claimed that at the time of this
contest there must hare been a good-sized
sack in sight, as it is a well-known fact
that no local politician was ever better
fitted to capture and place to the greatest
advantage any money to be expended in
either city or county elections. He has ac
quired a fortune by his activities in poli
tics. In the wards which he represents he
is fully conversant with every voter whose
action may be influenced one way or an
other. He controls all gambling privileges

TO OPEN CASCADE RESERVE.
Homes for Many Settlers May Be Provided
by the Interior Depart
PORTLAND, Or., Oct. 21. —State Land
Agent Davenport, accompanied by W. W.
Hepburn, will make a tour of Saiitiam
country above Mill City and Gates in a
few days for the purpose of gathering data
to present to the department at Washing
ton to influence the opening for settlement
of a portion of the Cascade reserve
along the line of the Oregon Central ana
Eastern Railroad. It is likely a monster
petition will be signed on both sides of
mountain range demanding the opening
of a wide strip for settlement, and more
than likely that the final result will be
that, the whole Cascade reserve as at pres
ent outlined may be restored to the public
domain. This action may be followed by
the establishment of two Government re
serves more in line with reason, as indi
cated by Senator Mitchell, who recently
wrote a letter to Agent Davenport in wnieh
he said :
"In my opinion a large body of land on
either side of the Oregon Central and
Eastern Railroad ought to be thrown open.
I never favored the establishment of this
reservation in its present form. I did
favor a reservation taking in Mount Hood
and a reasonable amount of land surround
ing, and also that great wonder. Crater
Lake, and a reasonable amount of land
surrounding it, but I do think a wide
swath through the reservation should be
cut out and thrown open to settlement,
mineral operations, etc. I hope you will
get up a good petition on the subject."
CHARLIE TYE GOES FREE.
Decision in the Case of a Chinaman Who
Could Not Register Because He
PORTLAND, Or., Oct. 21.— Judge Bel
linger rendered a deciscion this morning
in the case of Charlie Tye, which has at
tracted a large share of public attention.
Tye was arrested some weeks ago at Coop
Bay on a charge of being unlawfully in this
country, as he had no certiiicate of regis
tration. His defense was that he was sick
all the time when the registration act was
in operation, and was, therefore, unable to
register. The court held that the defense
was a good one and the excuse valid.
The question as to who should pay the
costs of the arrest and the expense" of trial
then arose. On this point the court ae
dided that the Government would be
liable for the costs. The case is without
precedent on this coast.

FATHER VILA GONE
Death of the Bearded
Priest of Santa
KILLED BY A CANCER.
For Months He Had Suffered
Agonies Without Once
forty years in the service.
He Was Probably the Only Un
shaven Catholic Ecclesiast
in This Country.
SAXTA BARBARA, Cal., Oct. 21.— The
Rev. James Vila, who died here at a late
hour last night, was the senior parochial
clergyman on this coast, and had held his
pastorate longer than any other Catholic
clergyman. He came of an aristocratic
Spanish family, being of the house of Vila
in the parish of Campeyes, Spain, the
landed proprietors of the great estate
known as Campa Vila, in the province of
James Vila came to the United States in
1855, and was ordained by the late Arch
bishop Alemany. For two years he labored
in San Diego and San Gabriel, and he com
pleted the thirty-eighth year of his pas
torate here last month. At one time he
held the oltice of vicar-general of this
diocese, but was obliged to resign the
office on account of ill health.
The story of Father Vila's labor 3in
Santa Barbara is a long record of loving
and unselfish service. In 1867 the old
church on Figueroa street was burned
down, and it was due to his efforts that
the present handsome and substantial
brick structure was erected. From this
lire the relics of St. Viviana, a martyr of
the third century, presented by Pope Pius
IX, were miraculously preserved, and are
now in Los Angeles. During the absence
of Bishop Mora in Europe in the early
eighties Father James officiated as the ad
ministrator of the dioceses of Monterey
and Los Angeles.
Fatner James Vila was perhaps the
only Catholic priest in this country who
wore a beard, and Helen Hunt Jackson
once chronicled this circumstance, stating
that he was permitted to wear it by special
papal dispensation. The reverend gentle
man, however, contradicted this report,
assuring those who inquired that there
was no law in the Catholic church com
pelling its clergymen to be shaven, and
declaring that this was merely an honored
custom of the church, but that it was no
infringement of church rules to deviate
Father Vila's death, as heretofore ex
plained in Thk Call, was due to cancer of
the throat, the disease entailing long
months of suffering, which he bore with
marvelous fortitude and resignation, no
murmur escaping his lipp. He was greatly
beloved, not only by all his parishioners
and his associates in the church, but by
many Protestants who learned to know
and appreciate his gentle character and
intellectual superiority during his long

to Knoxville, a distance of lifty-two miles,
and Manchester went along as driver. The

When the journey to Knoxville had been
made, Blackwell attended to a pretended
business transaction, and they started
upon the return trip. He requested Man
chester to let him know when they reached
a point within ten miles of Napa. In ac
cordance with this request Manchester, on
reaching Capelle Valley, told the man that
they were about that distance from town.
The words had scarcely been uttered be
fore the lines were jerked from Manches
ter's hands and a revolver was shoved
against his face. His assailant said he
was Bandit Brady, and ordered the driver
to hand over his money. About $25 was
taken from the liveryman, but his watch
was rejected after a critical scrutiny. Man
chester was ordered out of the carriage
and left in the road, the stranger driving
on to Napa.
When he arrived here the bandit drove
into the livery stable and told the senior
Manchester that his son had left the car
riage up the street and gone home. He
asked the stableman to hitch up another
team and drive him to Vallejo, and this
Mr. Manchester did.
Edward Manchester, when he was
ordered out of the carriage by the outlaw,
hurried to the ranch of A. J. Raney and
borrowed a saddle horse, on which he rode
to Napa. Sheriff McKenzie was notified
of the robbery and hastened to Vallejo.
Blackwell was traced to a house in which
he had occupied a room for several hours,
and thence to the steamer Amaaor. He is
now in jail here pending a hearing.

IT IS HARD TO TELL
Just When Summer Is Finally Over
and Autumn I* Mere Again.
When Is summer over, and when does fall
begin? It Is easy to .-ay "Look in the al
manac." The evidence of that respectable
volume is not conclusive, because the seasons
glide into each other by slow degrees. Ono
day is sharp and raw, yet the almanac says
"summer." Another is hot and enervating.
"It is autumn," declares the same authority.
These sudden fluctuations make our Ameri
can climate so trying to the human constitu
tion. They produce the colds that prostrate
the strongest men, and run into pneumonia
and even into consumption. All who have

death. The old are most likely to be taken off.
but every attack of this malady weakens the
power of the body to resist disease.

time of the year. All druggists and grocers
have it, although some of them may try to per
suade customers that something else it* just at
good. Do not listen to these men. Tell them
you know as well as they do that there is no
possible substitute for Duffy's Pure Mall
