SAW A VESSEL GO DOWN IN A GALE, Believed to Be the Ameri can Ship City of Philadelphia. OVERDUE AT THIS PORT Was Sunk With All on Board During a Terrific Squall. STORY OF A BRITISH CAPTAIN The Sea Was Running Tremendously High, Rendering Assistance Impossible. NEW YORK, N. V., June 25.— Fears are entertained that the ship reported as foundering in the South Atlantic by the British ship Loch Breden, just arrived at Liverpool, is the City of Philadelphia, which Bailed from New York February 2 with a general cargo for San Francisco. The City of Philadelphia carried a crew of twenty-five men and her master, Captain Johnson, bad his wife and family with him. She was spoken last on March 3in latitude 14 degrees 5G minutes south, longitude 34 decrees west. Captain Cornell of the Loch Breden re ports that on March 21, in latitude 36 de grees, longitude 40 — or in about the posi tion the American vessel was likely to be in after eighteen days' sailing on her course— he sighted during a gale a full rigged ship about two miles distant, under three lower topsails, laboring heavily. The next morning he saw her again, the seas breaking over her. Suddenly, at the height of a terrific squall, at about midday, she lurched over and disappeared. The seas were tremendously high and it was be lieved that the craft had sprung a leak. All on board must have perished. It is possible that the City "of Phila delphia may arrive safely at her destina tion, and that it was the doom of some other vessel witnessed Dy tne master of the British ship. She is considerably overdue, however, and the foundered vessel's description closely tallies with her. Sixty guineas premium were paid in London on her in surance this week. The City of Philadelphia, which regis tered 1400 tons, was built in Bath, Me., in 1857, and Waiter P. Cagar & Co. of Phila delphia are her managing owners. SOUTHERN PACIFIC GREED Kentucky Fails to Collect the Charter- Tax From the Railroad. Talk of Repealing the Grant Under Which the Corporation Is Operating. FRANKFORT, Ky., June 25. — The Southern Pacific" does not pay and never has paid a cent of taxes into Kentucky's treasury, although the road owes its exist, ence to and is now operated in California on a charter passed by a Kentucky Legis lature in the winter of 1884. After a hard struggle, the railroad having a giant power behind it and one of the strongest lobbies that ever held sway in Frankfort, the State Board of Valuation and Assessment, which has the fixing of values of corporate franchises, has taken the matter of taxing the company tinder consideration. Al though the board would like to find some way of rating the road nnder the pro visions of the revenue law, by which it is authorized to fix a rate, it has up to this time totally failed to reach any officer or agent of the road upon whom it may serve notice. While the board has been carrying on this investigation Auditor Stone, who is a member of the board and to whom the tax would have to be paid direct, has turned 1 he matter over to the personal supervision of Assistant Auditor Frank H. Johnson, who has given the matter thorough inves tigation. Mr. Johnson said to a Call representative: "Section 8 of the charter reads: 'The annual tax upon said corporation shall be the same as is now fixed for brokers' licenses, provided that all property owned by said corporation and situated in the State shall pay the same State and local tax as is assessed upon similar property, and capital stock in said corporation owned by citizens of the State shall be assessed against the holders thereof as causes in action under the equalization laws.' "The broker's license is only $250, but the road has not even paid this, and I see no disposition to comply with the plain terms of the iaw. Although there may be no property in the State, the road is operated on the charter which provides for the payment of the tax that is cer tainly dpe the State. It seems very diffi cult to reach the road, and the Kentucky officials can find nothing in the State to levy on. It is known that if the road shows no disposition to coiiply with the law it is the intention of the officials to recommend to the Legislature the repeal of the charter on this ground. "Senator William Goebel introduced a bill in the Legislature last winter provid ing for a repeal of the charter and made a gallant fight for it, but was met by a forci ble and effective lobby and he leceivedno assistance from the State officers. While this point was referred to by Senator Goe bol and his colleagues, the lobby, which was composed of several members of the Btnftte and combined corporation lobbies, had gained such headway it was successful in deferring the matter before the com mittee until just before the adjournment I gfis.sion, when it came up and the i Mil met its Waterloo. With thisof fx.inl stigma on the road, and re-in forced by tho efforts of the State officers, there would be little doubt of a second bill at th* next session or at any extra session pasting." Moneu- Orrfrr Clerk Disappears INDIANAPOLIS, Ind, June 25.— W. r >r<-"ne, money-order clerk of rntes Kxpress Company at it, failed to report at the office this morning, and a harried look at his accounts by the superintendent showed a shortage of about $1500.

CINCINNATI, Ohio, June 25.— Judge Helm this afternoon heard arguments for a new trial of Alonzo Walling, one of the alleged murderers of Pearl Bryan. The -defense produced affidavits showing that Jurors Ware and Miles, after being sum moned as jurors and before beinji ac cepted as such, stated that the defendant ought to be hanged. This was quite a sur prise, and Judge Helm said he would not pass upon the motion for a new trial until next Monday. Subpenas were issued for the two jurors and affidavit-maKers to ap pear in court on that day. If it is proven the jurymen made this statement Walling will undoubtedly get a new trial.

TRAMPS IN GREAT PERIL Killed a Minnesota Sheriff and Are Threatened With Lynching. Troops Called Out, but They Will Probably Arrive on the Scene Tod Late. ST. PAUL, Mixk., June 25.— Infuriated citizens of Southern Minnesota are trying to-night to lynch the two tramps who yesterday killed Sheriff Rodgers of McLeod County.

WORKING AT A RANCH The Outlaw Is Found Engaged on the Top of a Stack of Hay. YIELDS WITHOUT A STRUGGLE He Describes His Escape From Blood* hcunds by the Use of Cayenne Pepper. RED BLUFF, Cal., June 26.— Sheriff A. Bogard of Tehama County to-day cap tured W. A. Laverone, the notorious young* outlay, who some months ago broke jail at Madera. About a week ago the Sheriff had an intimation that the fugitive was in Tehama County, and he has been on the alert since then to locate him. He wrote to Sheriff Westfall ol Madera several days ago, mak ing inquiries, but had received no answer. He wired for an immediate answer this morning, and received in reply a full de scription of Laverone. Sheriff Bogard had suspected a certain person, and when tnis description was received he at once went to the ranch of Frank Miller, about two miles south of Corning. There he found the man he supposed to be Laverone. The fellow was at work on the top of a hay stack. The laborer was toid 4o come down from the top of the stack. On reaching the ground he was at once placed under arrest. He cheerfully com plied with a request of the Sheriff that he should bare his arm, and with the assist ance of J. J. Donovan his shirt was re moved and vaccine marks were discov ered. He then admitted that he was the man wanted, and became very talkative. Laverone gave a full account of his escape; how he sawed off the bars of the Madera jail, and the details ot his travels since then. He said he had a caseknlfe in his cell and procured a file, but he would not say where tne file came from. The knife was converted into a file, and the work was then easily done. He and his partner, Roberts, got a horse and cart as soon as they got out of jail, Laverone get ting the cart and Roberts remaining to see that the jailer did not awaken until Laverone' s return. They drove about eleven miles, when the cart broke down. Tbey then went up on to the mountains east of Madera, where they got something to eat at a sheep camp. At this point the bloodhounds were placed on their trail. To throw the hounds off the scent they sprinkled cay enne pepper over their shoes, and the re sult was all they could have hoped for. The next day they were so close to the hounds that they could watch them, but they felt safe, as the hounds would not follow the trail. They went to a small town on the railroad, where they stayed for four days, sleeping in a barn. Then they boarded a boxcar and went northward for some distance, when he and Robeits separated. Laverone went to the town of Tehama and secured work at the sheep ranch of E. H. Ward. Next he went to John Rob bins' ranch, where he worked for a time. He came to lied Bluff, but soon departed for the country. Then he went to his uncle, a rancher near Tboines Creek, northwest of Corning. After staying there a short time, he went to Miller's, where he was captured. Laverone refuses to give any informa tion regarding Roberts' whereabouts, al though Sheriff Bogard has closely ques tioned him. Teharna County has a Sheriff who never tires when on the chase. In many re spects he resembles his brother, J. J. Bogard, the Sheriff who w&s killed by "Jack" Brady at the time of the Wheat land train robbery. WORK AT PACIFIC GROVE.

PORTLAND, Or., June 25.— The authori ties have come to the conclusion that John I R. Crosgrove, the woman strangler, is ! crazy enough to relieve him of the respon ! sibilitv of answering to the indictment in ! the criminal court, which charges him > with assault with intent to kill a White chapel woman nearly three months ago. Ccgrove was turned over to the ccanty court lor examination for insanity this I afternoon, and he will probably be sent to ! the State Insane Asylum. The chief witness is not positive of the I identification of the man. and aside from that Cosgrove's actions indicate that he is mentally deluded, and if allowen to run at large he is m likely to attack a man as a woman. He, it is firmly believed by the police, had a hand in the strangling cases in San Francisco. Cosgrove was at one time in Vancouver, [ Wash., and it is believed he was the fiend who attempted to kill a woman there last winter. His peculiar mania was the kill ing of outcast women, thereby ridding the | world of their presence. Lake Tahoe's New Steamer.
