' POMONA, Cal., April 13. -This is the most extraordinary season for the plant ing of olive groves yet known in Southern California. Since January 1 400,000 olive trees for orchard planting have been shipped from Pomona to all parts of Cali fornia, Arizona and New Mexico and it is estimated that the total shipments from other olive-nursery towns to Southern California must have been upward of 200,000 trees. Several very large groves have been set out in San Joaquin Valley with trees from Pomona. One of them is in Fresno County, and is the largest in the world. It consists of 12,000 trees. It belongs to a syndicate of Chicago men, of whom Marshall Field ana ex-Senator Charles B. Far weil are members. If the trees thrive in the next twelve months this olive grove wilt be increased by 10,000 more trees. A remarkable fact in connection with the boom in olive planting this season has been ' the starting of olive groves in the Green River country of Utah. Pomona has supplied over 1.700,030 olive trees for orchards in the past years. • . : - ~\'-f'^ JltnuXt of I'etaluma'M Election.

GEMS OF ART FOR STANFORD'S HALLS Priceless Group of Rare Paintings From Far Australia. Contributed by Thomas Stanford, a Brother of the Late Senator. Kept a Famcus Artist Employed for Years in Depicting Antipo dean Landscape STANFORD UNIVERSITY. Cai., April 13. — Stanford University ha 9 been mag nificently remembered by Thomas Stan ford, a Melbourne citizen and brother ol the la :e Senator Stan lord. Ho takes his share of pride in tbe university. The library is named after him, and some day his fortune will go to swell the endow ment of that part of tbe establishment and make the library one of the richest collections of choice and rare books in the world. He is childless, having lost his only child, a beautiful girl whose idolized portrait hangs in his apartment at his house in East Melbourne. His dearest object in life is the bettermeut of tbe university, with which he wishes to worthily connect his name. Thomas Stanford's remembrance con- j gists o: a beautiful collection of paintings wbicb will take their place in the art de- ' partment of the museum. He is a de- ; vout lover of fine arts and bis private col- j lection of pictures is one of the best in Australia. About five years aeo he con ceived the idea of sending to Stanford University a collection of pictures of Australian scenery by an Australian artist, en tuat American art students could form as perfect an idea as possible of the bush, the lakes, the forests, the mountains, the plains and the rivers of that region. With this end in view he looked about to find an artist, who, by his truth and fidelity to nature primarily, 'his technical skill and his poetic touch, could carry out this idea. His choice fell upon J. W. Curtis. He bad admired the workol that artist for just those merits which he wanted in a collection of pictures for those who were not familiar with Austra lian scenery. The commission which Mr. Stanford gave to Mr. Curtis was: "Paint what you please; take your own time; name your own price; don't hurry; give me the best you can do, and make the pictures really representative of Aus tralian scenery." For four years the well-g;nown artist has | been working in a studio fitted up in the j rear of Mr. Stanford's house, so that that I gentleman could take an active interest jin the progress of the work. He pro | uuct'd liny paintings in all. The pictures take their choice of scenery from ail parts of Victoria. Thero are Murray pictures. Alp pictures, pictures of j Macedon in snow time, Gippsland Lake | pictures and coast pictures. Many of the scenes deDicted on the canvas were sug gested by Mr. Stanford himself. Mr. Curtla has the art to be derived only from a painstaking study of nature, bringing out the minute details of the scene. Every tree he paints has a charac ter of its own. His trees all live. They ! seem to grow from the canvas and to have j their roots deep down in the painted soil. 1 The eucalyptus tree is the one unifying feature of all the pictures. "Snow at ■ Wood's Point" is characterized as an Aus tralian scene by the fantastic, disheveled, uncoulhaess of the trees, which are un doubtedly eucalyptus. c One strong point Is the nainting of water reflections. The water is in all the i pictures most delicately and softly done, j It is exquisitely gentle, cool and refresh j Ing to the eye, executed with the truest j perception of tne beauty of nature's im j ages thrown back from a lake or rip pling creek. Among a number which especially de serve mention are "Coo-ey, Good-night," "Biood-red Sunset." "Between Daylight and Dark" and several in Echuca Part. His undergrowth ia feathery, fine, tan gled—not a muddled mass. Rocks are done with due observance of their car petiu g of grass. The paintings, with the dozen or so al ready in the museum, will make a superb collection of Australian scenery. WILLIAMS' LITTLE HEROINE. Thirteen- Year- Old Girl Sacrifices Her Life io Rescue a Companion Frtm Drowning. WILLIAMS, Ariz, April 13— One oF the most largely attended funerals ever held in this part of the Territory was that of Mttlt Mazy Gray, the 13- year-old daughter of E. N. Gray of this city. The circum stances of her death were heroic in the i extreme. With uncommon feminine dar- i ing and heroism she dashed into a swiftly ! running stream to save the life of her playmate, Maggie Brady. Maggie's life wai saved, but the brave little pirl who j went so boldly to the rescue was swept i away by the current and drowned before assistance could reach her. The two girls and a third, Nellie. O'Brien, all of about the same age, were playing on the banks of Ctaract Creek, wbicu is now running deep and rapidly. Maggie lost her footing and fell headlong into the icy waters, and brave little Mazy, who was first to see the accident, imme diately placed her own life in ieopardy and jumpe.i in to save her comrade. Macgie was fortunate enough to reach the bank in safety, but the current caught the rescuer and swept her away to martyr dom. It is doubtful if the records contain a liner example of youthful heroism. Mazy Gray was a most lovable child and a favor ite among her companions. Almost the entire population of the city turned out to attend her funeral. MOURNING IN GILROY. Death of Mrs. Mary A. Van Schaick, a Pioneer School Teacher of California. GILROY, C.v,., April 13.— The com munity is shockei by the sudden death of Mrs. Mary A. Van Sciinick, vice-prin cipal of the Giiroy schools, which oc curred at her home in this city last even ing at 0:4 r ) o'clock. Mrs. Van Schaick had taueht her classes up to dismissal hour on Friday last, and had appeared in her usual uood health. On Saturday she felt ill, and rapidly grew worse. Her relaives were summoned, but she failed to recognize her son (ivy, a student nt the University of California. Mrs. Mary Alabama Van Schaick was born in Alabama in 184 r >. She came to California In 1852 with her parents, Cap tain and Mrs. E. p. Dwight, now resi dents of Ean Benito County. She was a prominent factor in educational work, having been enpaeed in teaching must of the time for thirty years in Santa- Clara County. At one time she served as prin cipal of the Uilroy High School, having beenpromoted Irom the grnmmer grade, a position she held for many years. For several years she conducted a private school her' 1 , where students were "coached" to prepare for teacher's ex aminations. Xo teacher in this section of the Slate ha 3 been more successful in this line of work. Teachers from her academy are scattered far and wide, and number into the hundreds. Her self-sacrificing nature and devotion to her lie wort probably cost her her life. At the time of her death she was inter ested in preparing a class of forty-live pupils to pass the grammar school ex aminations in June. Mr*.. Van Schaick was married In 1872 to 11. D. Van Bchaick, and had one son. The whole community deplores and mourns the loss of this noble, broad j minded woman.

The funeral services at the grave will be conducted by Unity Rebekah Degree Lodge No. 24. TROUBLE ON THE COLUMBIA. S reined Relations of Fisherman and Can nerymen Presage an Early Conflict PORTLAND, Or., April 13.— An Astoria business man here to-day denounces the Chinese demand that all white labor be excluded from the canneries along the Columbia River as an outrageous piece of impertinence. He says That while some of the cannerymen would be prepared to j accede to this demand they are compelled to ignore it, because of the indignant up rising certain to follow. He added that a feeling of uncertainty pervaded th» fishing situation. It was simply out of the question for the can nerymen to pay the price asked by the flthermen (A 1 /, cents), and it promises to De a tight squeeze between keeping even and losing ou the season to pay 4 cents a pound. The fishermen threaten to start a co operative cannery unless they obtain tueir price, but in that event their concern would be so glutted with listt, within a day or two that they would be unable to handle 10 per cent of the catch. Just now there is a representative of a New York house along the lower Columbia offering the iisherinen 4% cents for their choice catch. That is about 25 per cent of the product The rest he will lake at ruling rates only. That, of course, will not work, and the situation is assuming an alarming aspect. The fishermen are growing desperate'and as they are not a mild-mannered class of people something serious is likely to happen soon. ARIZONA'S BANDIT KING.

STOPS A STAGE ON AN UPLAND TRAIL The Yreka and Etna Coach Robbed by a Single Outlaw. Wells-Fargo's Treasure-Box and the Mail Surrendered by the Driver. Fasseigers Permitted to Proceed Un molested—But Little Loot Obtained. YREKA, Cal., April 13.— The Yreka stage, which runs between this place ami Etna, was robbed of Wells-Fargo's ex press-box and the Uni;«d States mail on the north side of Forest House Mountain, about ten miles south of Yreka, at 4 o'clock this afternoon. Fran* Hovey, who has been driving on this line for a number of years, was band ling the ribbons and waa accompanied by five passengers, one of them a woman. About halfway up the grade there is a sharp turn with a large rock on one side. The ariver and passengers saw no one as they approached, but just as Hovey pulled the leaders up to make the turn a man stepped from behind tne rock, leveled a rifle at the driver and ordered him to throw oat the express-box and mail, a command which was immediately com plied with. The highwayman then told Hovey to drive ahead, knowing he would have ample time to sort out the more val uable portions of his loot, as the nearest habitation is fully eight miles further on. The robber was a man of medium height, dressed in dark clothes and wearing a slouch hat and white mask. He appeared perfectly cool and did not offer to molest the passengers. He was no doubt looking fora shipment of bullion to the bank of A. B. Carlock at Fort Jones, but it is known that there was only about $50 in the express-box and not a great deal of mail. Express Agent F. E. Wadsworth left for the scene of the robbery, accompa nied by an officer, immediately upon rs cejpt of the news. The Jast time this stage was robbed was about three years ago, when a highway man obtained several hundred dollors. LOS JLAGJSLt.S A.FSRAT.
