QUIET IS

Expected.

to Be Caught Napping
by Lynchers.

THE PRISON.
Miss Polrler, the Victim of the Mexi
can, Recovering From Her
Wounds.
COLUSA, Cal., Aug. 27.— Quiet has been
restored here and it is believed that the
danger of an attempted lynching has
passed. The condition of Pedro Vineiii,
who shot and dangerously wounded Miss
Florine Poirier last Tuesday, took a change
for the worse to-day. The Mexican has
taken no nourishment except a little milk
since the day of the tragedy, and it now
seems probable that the grim reaper will
Cheat the enraged Colusans out of their
desired vengeance. Vineili tosses about
and moans in pain on his hard cot in the
County Jail. He can be induced to talk
but little, and when he does spe*k it is to
defend his act and declare that his son
had been ill-treated by the beautiful girl
whose life he attempted to take. Miss
Poirier is resting easily and bids fair to
recover Ironi her wounds. This has helped
to p'acite the men who sought her as
sailant's life, and unless her condition
suddenly changes for the worse there is
little liselihoot that an attack on the
prison would be meditated, even though
it were not surrounded by National
Guard.
Company D will probably return to
Marysville to-morrow, but Sheriff Jones,
reso.ved not 10 be taken unawares, will
keep Company X of Colusa in readiness to
answer his call should the militia be
needed. Despite the present inaction of
the vigilantes, there is a possibility that
they are quietly preparing for a sudden
onslaught upon the prison when the
present excitement has died down, and it
is to prevent a surprise of this nature that
the Sheriff is taking unusual precautions.
"I hope there will be no further trou
ble," said Sheriff Jones to-day. "Vineili
will be protected at all hazards. I cannot
express the grief I would feel should 1
be compelled to order the prison guards
to fire upon my friends — for among those
who wish to hang Vineiii there are un
questionably many citizens who are
friends 01 mme — but I have said that
the older would be g yen if an attack
was made upon the prison, and I will
keep my word."
No one who knows Sheriff Jones doubts
that he would do as he promised if lynch
ers attempted to storm his stronghold. It
was this knowledge that held the mob in
check on Wednesday, night, when it was
at the fire house arranging the details of
the proposed attack. The Sheriff sent a
■warning to the vigilantes, and after it was
received no one had the hardihood to vol
unteer to lead in the attempt to visit
death npon-the hated Mexican prisoner.
"I do not- believe there will be further
trouble," continued the Sheriff: "but
just' to be on the sale side, I will keep one
company of militia ready to come out at a
moment's notice, and I. will not decrease
the present force of prison guards. The
chandes are that Vineili will die anyhow,
and there will be no subject for a lynch
ing demonstration.
Major Douglass of the Second Regi
ment, N. G. C, arrived -to-day and is in
command of the two companies of militia
stationed at the prison, lie will probably
remain in Colusa for several days or until
it is certain that there is no reason to fear
an onslaught upon the prison.
Even though Vineili recovers from his
self-rnflicted wounds, his arraignment will
not take place for some time to come, as
weeks will elapse before lie will be strong
enough to arise horn the hard cot in his
cell. \/l
. FISHER M I'JtN MINE CLOSED.
Low Price of Silver Responsible for a
Cessation of Work in the
Claim.
SEATTLE, Wash-. Aug. 27-— The own
ers of the Fisher M .iden mine, one of
the richest silver producers in the Slocan
country, have ordered it closed indefi
nitely. The great depression in silver is
responsible.
Frank Watson, one of the pioneers in
the Slocan district, is the chief owner of
the Fisher Maiden. Associated with Wat
* son are a number of British Columbia and
Washington men. The Fisher Maiden,
although a comparatively new mine, has
firoved to he one of the very richest in the
district. A few days ago Watson received
returns from the smelter at Everett on a
" carload of ore. Seven «actcs produced 870
ounces of silver ore, worth at tne present
market price a little over $452. A carload
of twenty tons assayed 240 ounces to the
ton. Assays on sevsral shipments from
the mine have' gone a" high as 367 ounces.
The average value of Fishtr Maiden ore Is
considerably over eighty ounces to the
ton. The mine can be profitably worked
for $30 a ton. At the present market
price, the ore would yield a margin of
profit over this figure, but the gain would
ba small in comparison witn the price of
silver before the recent slump began.
Mr. \Vatson is the chief owner in a
group of claims in the Slocan district, mc
c uding the Arlington., Good day.
Paupers' Dream. Early Bird and Indiana.
In the Arlington sheets of native silver
have been found, and the ore now being
taken out is sufficiently valuable to war
rant the continued operation of the mine.

with his pistol. Jus: then another of the
hobos let fly a cobblestone at Stewart and
then ran. Stewart took a shot at him,
but the fellow did not stop. It was after

its way.
TERROR CAUSES HIR DEATH
Her Home Invaded by Gypsies, a
Hydesvil/e Woman Expires
From Fright.
EUREKA, Cal., Aug. 27.— Mrs. John
Bush, who lives with her husband on a
farm on Yager Creek, near Hydesville,
was frightened to death by a band of
gypsies yesterday. Mrs. Bush was in
delicate health and was at the time alone
on the premises, her husband being away
on business. A band of the gypsies,
knowing her to be without a protector,
crowded into the house, surrounded her
and began to appropriate whatever they
could lay hands on. She was terrifiid
and fell over in a swoon. Her husband,
on return in <", found her completely pros
trated. A doctor was summoned, but she
died before his arrival.
Residents of the Yager district are wild
with ra^e, and the gypsies may be roughly
handled.

DEPTH OF LAKE CHELAN.
Wire Nearly a Half- Mile in Length
Lowered Without Touching
Bottom
TACOMA, Wash . Aug. 27.— Lake Che
lan in Okanogan County is the second or
third deepest body of fresh water in the
world. This interesting fact has just been
discovered by a Government Geological
Survey paity which is exploring it. Will
G. Steel, the Portland mountain-climber,
is a member of the party. In a private
letter received to-day Steel says:
In 1886 I had the pleasure of sounding
Crater Lake, Or., for the Government and
Creaking the record of deep waters in
America. By that act Crater Lake took rank
as the third "body of water In the world, out
side of the ocean. By yesterday's work the
record has been again broken, and Lake Che
lan has been found to be deep even than
Crater Lake and stands a good show of beat
ing the Caspian Sea and thus occupying sec
ond place in the world. We hive only 2560
feet of wire in camp, all ot which was let out
yesterday in the middle of the lake without
striking bottom.
I shall send to Portland at once for more
wire and all appliances necessary for finding
that bottom. I hope it will run over 3000
feet, as that is the record for the Caspian Sea.
However, we will certainly make a lively
hustle lor second place. Wouldn't it b*; fine
If we could beat Lake B-ilknl, nt 4000 feet, and
hold the world's record? Tho surface ot the
water here is close to 1097 feet, so you see we
go a long way below sea level. On each side
of the lake are many mountains over 5000
feet high.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, l*v(.
FOUND FRIENDS
AND A SHELTER
Emma Davis, the Slave
Girl, Located by
"The Call."
Given a Home and Cared For
by a Kindly Couple Near
Fresno.
Tells of Her Cruel Treatment While
Toiling In a Madera
Vineyard.
FRESNO, Cal., Aug. 27.— For the past
few days the authorities of Madera, acting
at the instance of the British, Consul at
San Francisco, have been trying to locate
a girl named Emma Day's. whom it is
their purpose to rescue from a life of
slavery. Mr. and Mr?. Stubbs, who own
a vineyard two miles from. Madera, ar
rived with the girl from England five
years ago. They compelled her to per
form the work of a man in the fields, and
Mrs. Stubbs in drunken fits of anger often
beat the child. The girl was not sent to
school, but kept in a life of bondage on
the farm, mistreated and compelled to en
dure hardships that were cruel for one of
her tender years.
A few week* ago Mrs. Stubbs learned
that the Consul was interesting himself in
the case, and tbe woman, not desiring to
lose possession of the girl, brought her to
r-resuo and bound her out to work on a
farm. Sheriff Westfill was working on
the case, but he could not find the girl,
Mr*?. Sluhbs refusing positively to give
him any information.
To-night The Call correspondent suc
ceeded in locating the girl. She is at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Merriam, two
miles southeast of this city, and has in
deed found , friends in them. They will
see to it, if no one else will, that the un
fortunate girl shall not return again to the
life of bondage to which Mrs. Stubbs sub
jected her on the Madera vineyard.
Mr. and Mis. Merriam are an elderly
couple, without children, and are taking
a deep interest iv the child that has come
under their care. Merriam is a prosperous
vineyardist, and he is able to provide for
his temporary ward.
To her new friends the girl had already
told the story of her life, but they had not
been aware that the authorities were in
teresting themselves in Miss Davis' wel
fare before informed that such was the
case by the newspaperman. They had
themselves been thinking of inking steps
to free the child from the control of Mrs.
Stubbs. ;."
"The giri has been badly mistreated,"
said Merriam. "She has been stunted in
growth both in mind and body. She
cannot even tell the time of the clock.
She does not know her own age, and in
fact the only thing that she has knowl
edge of is hard manual labor. When she
came here two weeks ago she had only
the scantiest supply of wearing apparel',
and this was of a very inferior character
at that."
The girl told the history of her life.
She has a pretty face, and wnile Mrs.
Stubbs had represented that *-he was 17
years Mr. and Mrs. Merriam did not
believe she was more than 14. The girl's
face and hands wera hard from labor in
the field. She spoke with a strong Eng
lish accent.
"My real name is Emma Elli«. although
Mrs. Stubb-* calls me Emma Davis. My
mother sent me to California with the
Stubbs' five years ago. She doe* washing
and my father is a gardener in England.
I am very glad to have got away from
Mrs. Stubbs, for she treated me cruelly
sometimes, making me work from early
until late a': the heaviest kind of labor on
the ranch. Many time* 1 felt I could not
stand it. Sometimes Mrs. Stubbs became
drunk on wiDe, and then sue would beat
me. . She often told me 1 was the slave of
her family and that I was there to work
for them. SSRVB
"I never was sent to school, and during
the five years I was at Madera I never was
allowed to write to mv mother, and 1
never received a letter from her."
The girl told her story in the simplicity
of manner that was convincing of its
truth. Sheriif Westfall will probaDly
come down from aiadcra to-morrow to
lake charge of the unfortunate child.

a sweet and cheerful companion, the teaching
profession has lost a bright and shining light,
and the body of superintendents an earnest,
efficient ec-laborer in the death of our dearly
beloved and highly respected Mrs. dark
March Armstrong, that occurred in July this

Rumored Murder of a Leper.
SIOCkION, Cal., Aug. -The story
now comes from Roberts Island that the
Chinese leper who died there last week
was murdered. Nothing was developed
at the inquest, but the idea was broached
that the Mongolian committed suicide to
escape death at the hands of his country
man. Now it is hinted* that their threats
were carried out, and that the - Chinese
was poisoned. An island resident stated
that he believed the leper's food had been
poisoned. Health Officer Harkness knows
of a number of threats having been made
against the leper's life. ::■'-;■ v
TRINITY -BOUND FROM REDDING,
Great Exodus of Prospectors Contin
ues, Despite Discouraging Reports
of Back Trailers.
REDDING, Cal., Aug. 27.— Prospectors
from various sections of the country are
still gathering in thin city, bound for the
Coffee Creek gold fields. This morning
about seventy-five arrived and have been
devoting their time to-day to buying sup
plies and outfits. •'• r- 1 -
Notwithstanding the fact that just now
some very discouraging reports are com
ing in from the new diggings th*»e new
comers are not to be thrown off the track
in their search for gold, and right in the
face of these adverse reports they con
tinue to flock to Trinity like sheep.
Along with the lew discouraging re
ports come many good reports of new
strikes, and the general situation remains
about the same as during the past
week. A few small strikes in rich gravel
have been made, and a number of exceed
ingly rich quartz claims are being opened.'
The sale of the famous Bloss & Mc-
Cleary mine and the changing hands of
several other pieces of Trinity property
have beer, the means of restoring confi
dence among a good many who. would
have otherwise "back-trailed" from Red
ding. Quite a number of these pros
pectors, or would-be prospectors, who
have arrived here and been given a dose
of cold water by tome who, are .overanx
ious to give mining affairs a black eye
generally, hearing of these new sales and
bonding of property, have been ' given re
newed confidence, and will now. go to the
new gold fields and take their chances
along with the thousands who are already
camped in the vicinity of Coffee ; Creek. ;
Six of about the worst, discouraged
people that can possibly be found arrived
here to-night from Trinity Center. They
came down on the regular stage, tired,
dusty and sore, and with opinions of
Trinity County some of which.were, they
expressed la type wculd not appear. very
presentable. -Whether this half dozen
men have done any prospecting or not is
not known, but if their opinion Is acted on
by those still intending to go to the mines,
there will be a change of front, and the
arrivals will be considerably less frequent
from now on. " . . . ....*. >
Among this small party of back-trailers
is a German with an exceedingly foreign
accent to ins speech. He was about the
maddest man in the bunch, and lost no
opportunity in expressing his contempt
for everything and every bod j'.
A large number of the sporting frater
nity of Redding left to-day to "do" the
races at Trinity Center. Many of j them
will remain in Trinity and work the tiger
at the new town of Coffeeville. It is re
ported that 200 prospectors from southern
points will arrive here to-morrow. ■ '•'.&?.

RUNS AGROUND
ON A SANDY BAR
The Brigantine Blakeley
Goes Ashore Near
Port Angeles.
Carried Out of Her Course
While Speeding Through
a Fog Bank.
Late at Night the Tug Resolute
Succeeds In Releasing the
Vessel. <
FORT TOWNBEND, Wash.. Aug. 27.—
The brigantine Blakeley, while bound in
from a successful three months on the
halibut bank? of Bering Sea, went ashore
this morning near Dungeness lighthouse
and all day long resisted efforts to re
lease her. Late to-night, however, the ,
tug Resolute succeeded in freeing her, and
is now towing her up the sound. The
brigantine is badly damaged.
The straits of Juan de Fuca were at the ■
time the Biakeley struck covered by a
blanket of fog and smoke, making it im- '
possible for those aboard to see a length
ahead. When the vessel struck on the
dangerous coast the tide was at it 3 fullest !
flood and the ou fljw, which soon became
apparent on the vessel's side, showed that
the Blakeley was in a perilous position.
Word was shouted to the lighthouse,
whence a telegram for assistance was sent
to Port Angeles. The tug Resolute went
to the rescue of the imperiled craft and
every device known for saving a stranded
vessel was resorted to without success, un
til high tide to-night.
The catch of the vessel, comprising 200
I tons of halibut and cod. weighed her down
heavily, adding much to the difficulty.
The brig Blakeley was made famous two
j years ago by being utilized as the initial
i passenger packet for the hordes which
were then rushing to the land of gold iv
the Cooks Inlet country. Horses and
human beings packed the craft down to
the water's edge. In this condition, with
the 200 lives aboard in constant jeopardy, .
she set sail.
Carrier pigeons for a while brought back
tidings. of an unusually tumulutous trip,,
and then ail tidings suddenly ceased, giv- \
ing the inference that the vessel had foun
dered with all on board a view which
was not removed when for over three
months she continued missing.
Finally, however, after steps had been
taken at the earnest solicitation of those
aboard to send a Government vassal out
i in search of the brigantine, she arrived off
I Resurrection Creek and was reported.
| About half the horses had been killed and
! eaten, and the passengers were fast becom
| ing desperate. Since her return here the
: BlaKeley has been in the fishing trade ex
| clusively.
The point at which the Blakeley v.a* held
prisoner is a sandy bar, exposed to every
wind. ' " ■*•- :." -V
In 1887 Hie well-known bark Lizzie
Marshall went ashore there, but was
saved at an enormous expense by the in
surance companies. In 1890 the Chilean
ship Savona, bound in irom Chile, be
came a total wreck. In 18u2 the Chilean
ship Eraetrae became uecalmed and
drifted upon the rocks, becoming ■* total
wreik. A year later ih- American bark
R. K. Ham, completing her one hundred
and first voyage to the sound, went
aground in the identical spot where the
Blakeley was stranded. These five
wrecks havd all occurred, • strangely
enough, along shore line of less than a
mile. .iv*. •- ..

SANTA ROSA, Cal., Auj. 27.— Ex
empt Fin. m -n's Association of Sonoma
County will endeavor to compel the Board
of Supervisors, by mandamus, to estab
lish a relief fund for disabled exempt fire
men. The firemen petitioned tie board
to make such provision, but the board re
fused to comply. The law, as the firemen
construe it, plainly authorized the Super
visors to make the desired appropna'ion.
Suit has been ordered brought against

ARE YOU
yOU ARE INTERESTED IN WHAT
-*- follows, not because you are weaker
than your fellow-men, but because you
may have all that you most prize in tnU
world if you will but read it careiully and
ACT on the few suggestions given you.
Why is it, to commence with, that you
have those little spots before your eyes?
Why is it that you are always despairing
of being able to fulfill all the duties of
lusty manhood? Is it because of neglect,
or is it because you care not as to whether
you are ever considered a man again or
not? Do you want to give up? ;Do you
want the world to laugh at you? Now,
for one moment, put your head "next to
yourself." Shaking limbs tell the tale.
Well, you have thought it over, have
you? Now, would it not be better for yon
to send to the gran 1 old Hudson Medical
Institute and find ont about that grand
remedio-treatment HUDYAN than to
continue on as a puny man? You know
that ' circulars and testimonials telling
you all alo it it cost you not one single
cent; yon Know that it has cured a few
thousand cases which were far worse than
yours on this slop?; you are fully aware
that you can get medical advice free if
you can summon up enough courage to
write for it. and you know how fairly ana
how decently you get treated at the In-
stitute. HUDYAN actually mattes young
men out of old men; it recreatos man.
Do you think that too glorious to be true?
Write and get the proof.
The wonders that HUDYAN. work*.
are only equaled by the : "SO-Day.*
Blood Cure," which is another gr.i>.<l
discovery --f thue doctors. That stop*
all chancs of. trouble hereafter if
taken soon enough, and if your eye-
brows are getting thin, if your teeth
are a bit loose, 'if your threat swells a
trifle and there are lump, in it you
had better get soma good advice at'
once. the advice that the Hudsunl v
stall wil- give you will cost you not ono
cent, b it it is the best to be had for
love or money. Will you cease to be a
