Special Dispatch to The Call
Call Office. Riggs House.)
Washington, D. C, Nov. 3. )
The Call correspondent saw Attorney-
General McKenna this afternoon at the
Department of Justice and talked with
him for an hour on the Union ana Kansas
Pacific sale*.
In the course of a casual conversation,
which was introductory to an interview,
Mr. McKenna said that the department
was at present engaged in going over the
treasury's accounts with the Union Pacific
Railroad proper, so as to arrive at an ac
curate determination of its indebtedness.
Then he said :
"Many statements have been printed as
coming from me or other officers of the
Dei artment of Justice, but in some cases
tbe reports have been marbled or distorted,
or else the figures have Deen inaccurately
printed by mistake of the telegraph
operator or newspaper compositor; so, if
you will pardon me. I will set down the
bgurei for you on this pad of. paper."
The Attorney-General then commenced
his talk, occasionally making figures with
notations opposite. He said:
"It has been charged in certain quarters
that the reorganization committee was the
Leneficiary of a 'deal* made with the ad
ministration. This is manifestly unjust,
for any one who has read the late pub
lished statements of Mr. Huntington or
hi- associates or representatives "could see
that the committee very reluctantly
yielded when they saw that the Govern
ment meant to postpone tne sale so as to
let in other bid lers. Of course, it may be
said that Mr. Huntington, his associates
and agents are affecting a disappointment
and making querulous complaints merely
for effect, but dees any sensible man
rea.tv believe that the reorganization
committee is pleased with ah arrangement
whereby they are compelled to pay
$8,000,000 more than they at first thought
was necessary? A few more such 'deals'
as this would bankrupt the committee.
"This administration by its arrange
ment has piocured nearly $13,000,000
more than under the t?rms proposed by
the preceding administration, and it
amounts to $18,000,000 if we consider the
Kansas Pacific also, for the guarantee on
the Kansas Pacific is retained on the 'up
set price' fixed by the decrees on that
road. The truth is that even tinder Presi
dent Cleveland's administration the Gov
ernment and the reorganization commit
tee were adversaries in a business trans
action, or, rather, they have been
leeal adversaries, and this adminis
tration found the same state of affairs ex
isting. The committee held not only a
first Hen on the Union Pacific and as
stockholders practically owned the road,
but held also a first lien on Kansas Pacific
and other liens subordinate to the Gov-
mom's.
"Of course it wa? the plan of the
committee to obiain the roads by fore
closure proceedings, clear of t;:e Govern
ment lien. They sought to enlist the
Government as a party to these proceed
ings, for they realized that this was indis
pensable as a part of the programme.
But we would not risk a sale in which
there would be but the two bidders — the
committee and the Government. It is
unnecessary to mention th? many good
reasons why the Government did not wish
to bid on the road. It is sufficient to say
that upon our retusal to do so the com
mittee guaranteed a bid of $45,700,000.
The Government, in consideration ot this
offer, began an independent suit to fore
close its own mortgages, and at the same
time agreed to appear in the suits
brought on the first mortgage, and when
decrees were made by the court tne
Government concluded to appal, but
when the committee offered to increase
its guarantee bid by about $4,300,000, mak
ing it a total of $50,000,000, the Govern
ment agreed not to take an appeal in con
sideration of the latter offer.
"The properly was then ofiered for sale
and advertised for four weeks, which was
deemed a sufficient time, inasmuch as
great publicity had been given the court
proceedings, not only through the me
dium of dispaches pubishe I in the
United State*, but in England and the
continental countries of Europe, and the
Government was certainly justified in be
lieving that the interested and prospective
bidders had been fully attentive to these
proceedings in court. But even after all
of this wide publicity, when the Govern
ment hat reason to b:.ieve that better
bids might be secured by delay, the suns
were postponed. Of cours:-, the reorgani
zation committee was highly pleased with
his last deal."
The Attorney-General continued, iron"
ically: "Probably that is the reason they
sousht to prevent the postponement.
When they saw that a postponement
could only be avoided in one way they
offered to bid the total amount of the
Government's claim on the Union Pacific
Of course they were just tickled to death
b-canse of a deal by which tliev hail to
pay $8,000,000 in addition lo the $4 303,000,
making $12,300,000 altogether mote than
they had expected to pay.
"Now, as to the Kansas Pacific." con
tinued the Attorney-General, as he jotted
down a few figures on his pad ol paper.
"It has been charged that the Govern
ment has impaired its Kansas Pacific
claim because of the separate sales. Th*
court ordered that they should be sepa
rate—tbe Union Pacific on November 1
and 2 and 'he Kansas Pacific on the stii
and Oh. It is true there was only a dif
ference of a few days provided by the
cour decree, but yet the sales were to
be irate.
i. "It is nonsense to say that the Govern
ment's claim is lost. The very lowest
price that can be bid is $12,300,000. The
first-raortcace lien will probably not
amount to 1.(7,000,000. because the receivers
have money that may be applied on this
lien. But granting that it is $7,000,000.
this would leave $5,000,000 to be applied
on the Government's claim. The Govern,
ment would then lose less than $7,000
Isn't $64,000,000 a pretty fair sum to re
ceive out of a total indebtedness of
$71,000,000; and especially as the Govern
ment holds only a second mortgage on
these roads?
"Now, I say that the reorganization
committee is bound to bid for the Kansas
Pacific, although I have noticed press re
ports to the effect that they will not. But
they hold liens junior to the Govern
ment's claims and their ownership of the
road is an essential feature of the reorgan
ization scheme. It is also necessary for
them to bid in order to make good the
first mortgage which they hold.
"The road is one of the best in the coun
try, in 1890, 1891 and 1892 the road made
a net income of 4 per cent on $25,000,000
and 5 per cent on $20,000,000, Th.s was
only for the aided portion. I am not
speaking of the unaided part. In 1596 its
net income was $705,701. This was pretty
cood, considering the hard times, but in
IS!X> the net income was $774,473, notwith
standing the immense sums spent for re
pairs and improvements. In 1891 the net
income was $1,223,006. In 1592 it was
$1,501,260.
"Now, I have shown that it will pay a
profit of 4 per cent on $25,000,000. Why,
then, should the reorganization commit
tee allow it to be sold for one-half of this
amount, or $12,300,000? Now, isn't that a
crazy notion? No, the road will not be
paralleled by the committee, for they
know well enough that this would impair
the value of its junior securities."
"But how about the reports cabled
from London that Coates & Son were
prepared to maKe even a larger bid than
the reorganization committee?'' asked
The Call correspondent, and tbe At
torney-General replied:
"Weknow nothing about their finan
cial standing. Besides, they had plenty
of time to take the necessary steps to
become bidders ov making the deposit of
$5,000,000 as required. Tney did not do
it, and we have not heard anything more
from them. I hope that the statement
and figures I have given you will be
transmitted and printed without error,
for I feel convinced that tho California
people and the general public will realize
that the Government has done its very
best." C. C. Carlton.

BURNED TO DEATH
IN HIS DWELLING
"Old Baldy,'' a Noted Arizona
Miner, Perishes in a
Conflagration.
His Charred Corpss Found In the
Ruins of His Humble
Cabin.
Special Dispatch to The Call
PRESCOTT, Nov. 3. —The cabin of
William Moore, more familiarly known
as "Old baldy," on Lynx Creek, was des
troyed by fire some time last night and
the burned body of Moore was found in
the rums this morning. The remains
were charred beyond recognition, the
arms and legs being burned away.
The testimony introduced at the in
quest develojed the fact that Moore was j
sick for several weeks, unable to be I
around except lor short intervals at a j
time. I
On Sunday persons who visited him
found him in bed, and he could scarcely
move.
The origin of the fire could not be
learned, but from the position in which
the remain* were found it was apparent
i bat Moore had attempted to get out of
the building and had fallen just inside of
the door.
G. G. Henderson and family live about
150 or 200 yards from the Moore cabin over
a small knoll, and on Monday morning,
between 3 and 5 o'clock, Mrs. Henderson
heard a number of snots fired. As Moore
had some dynamit caps in his cab n it is
supposed that it was the explosions of
these that she h-erd. Moore has been a
resident of that section for a longtime
and had been encaged in placer mining.
He was about GO years old.
REDWOOD CITY'S UNKNOWN DEAD.
Description of the Stranger Whose
Corpse Was Found in West
point Creek.
REDWOOD CITY, Nov. 3.— The body
of the unknown man found in Westpoint
(.'reek by William Carnduff was brought
to the morgue late last ni ht by Coroner
Crowe. ;
The following is a description of the
unknown, which may lead to his identifi
cation: Height 5 leet 7 inches, weight
about IGO pounds. The body was dressed
in a suit of gray clothes, coat, vest and
trousers beint; of the same material. The
coat is double-brea'iteo. He wore a black
oveicoat. Red s jcks and .gaiter shoes,
about No. 8, encase his feet. The hair on
the head and face is entirely gone, due
probably to the action of the salt water,
in which the body has been for probably
several days. The mouth contain! a full
set of teeth. On the third fincer of the
right hand is a heavy plain cold ring, on
the inside of which are engraved the
tni ials "M. T.," with the numbers
"23 J 4 | 76.'"
On the body was found i gold hunting
watch, on one side or which is engraved
i lie figure of a horse drinking from a
watering-trough in front of a barn. On
the other side the case is chased, with a
blank space left for a monogram. At
tached to the watch is a heavy geld link
chain, and attac ed to the chain is a watch
charm in the form of an attist's palette,
on "tie .side ef which is the raised figure
of a locomotive, underneath which are
the initials, "B. L. E.," evidently show
ing thaidecea*et beloneed to the Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers.
In the trou«ers pocket were found an
iron key and 20 cents in change.

TOWARD LAND
Sacramento Eager to
Learn Its Mayor's
Intentions.
Belief That He Will Drive the
Poolrooms From the
City.
Republican Officials-Elect Praise
"The Call" for Its Cam
paign Work.
Special Dispatch to T he Call
SACRAMENTO, Nov. The baffle is
over and a milk-white flag floats over the
crumbling ramparts of Rider and Laroux.
But will Mayor Land accept the truce? is
the question. Will he permit the men
who arrayed the "ragtag" of the town
against him to now come in out of the
storms of winter and ply their vocations?
Will Mayor Land listen to their denials of
treachery, overlook the ingratitude of the
menials who have fed from the crumbs of
his table, or will his "willing ear" be
turned to those who live "uptown,'' and
whose pure and unpurchased ballots made
him Mayor? Those who have known
William Land for thirty years declare the
latter course will be pursued by him.
The poolrooms were to have opened to
day, but this contingency has arisen:
Will Land permit it? Will Sacramento
be a "wide-open" town for the next two
years, or will William Land listen to the
voice ot the people who elected him and
start out with an administration of which
he will be uroud when his term is over?
The odds are on. his pursuing the latter
course. Said a prominent uptown Re
publican to-night: 'If Will am Land
gives this city the administration I be
lieve he will, he will close the poolrooms,
stop every gambling game in the town
and starve out these yellow-facjd tinhorn
gamblers who fought him yesterday on
Second street. It will make him some day
the Governor of this State."
There is no question bnt that great
I things are expected of new Sacr; memo's
| new Mayor. There is no question but that
I William Land wil fulfill the most flatter
| ing expectations of his many friend .
Every candidate on the Republican
| ticket has given some personal expression
'■ of gratitude and appreciation for the
: work of The Call. Captain Young, the
Republican nominee for Auditor and
Treasurer, who defeated . his opponent by
over HOC majority, said: "The heatty
i support ot tue Sun Francisco Call of our
j entire ticket we have often spoken of dur
| ing this contest. lam, of course, person
ally gratified over the magnificent man
ner in which 'J he Call supported mv
candidacy and am very thankful indeed.
i The Call contributed greatly to my sj lon
diu majority."
Charley Robinson, the Republican can
didate indorsed ly all parties, said:
"While there was no danger whatever of
my defeat, I appreciate the eflort3 of The
Call just sia much as I WOU.d had there
i been a close contest. The Call's attitude
' in his fijht will never b; forgotten by the
j Republicans of Sacramento."
"The gratuitous services of The Call
j were most acceptable," said Mr.de Ligne,
the new City Attorney, "and there is cer
titinly creat satisfaction lelt among the
Republicans of Sacramento."
"The Call Is all right," was the expres
sion of Charley Paine, Republican
Trustee of the Third.
Phil Douglas, Trustee-elect of the Sev
enth, wa> very earnest in expressing his
; gratitude for the work o. The Call.
"The beauty about it." said Mr. Doug-
I las, "is thai there was not a man on the
| ticket that The Call didn't work for. It
I had no favorites, out every Republican
candidate irom Mayor down was heartily
I supported, and the result was nearly our
! whole ticket was elected. Long live The
j Call!"
A visit to the | oolrooms found every
thing in readiness. The blackboards have
been repainted, the chain fixed up and
from this standpoint of preparation busi
ness could have commenced this after
noon. But it will not commence this
afternoon, nor any other afternoon dur
ing the administration of William Land.

OVERTURES FOR
RECIPROCITY
British Guiana Sounds
the Authorities at

Seeks to Secure Every Advan

Special Dispatch to The Cam-
LONDON, Nov. 3.— The British Embas
sador to the United States, Sir Julian
Pauncefote, has been instructed to ascer
tain the views of the Government of the
United States in regard to a reciprocity
trea y with the West Indies.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3— It has been
known here for some time that the West
Indian possessions of Great Britain were
urging the home Government to secure
for them all the reciprocity advantages
posiible under the Dingle; act. The ini
tiative was taken by British Guiana, where
the High Court of Co onial Legislation
unanimously adopted a resolution re
questing the authorities at London to in
struct the British Embassalor at Wash
ington to secure all the advantages of
fered to other countries in the line of re
ciprocity.
The debate in the High Court brought
out the statement that the sugar industry
of the colony, which is tbe chief one, was
dependent to a lar^e extent on the Amor
can market, the shipments to the United
States exceeding those to ail other coun
tries. Without a reciprocity arrangement,
it was stated in the debate, South Ameri
can sugar-producing countries would se
cure control of the American market, and
th? industry of British Guiana would be
crippled, if not destroyed. It was under
stood that the other British- American col
onies would take action similar to that by
British Guiana. The instructions now i -
sued to Sir Julian Pauncelote are in re
sponse to these appeals from the British
co onies. BflH
The British colonies which secured recip
procitv treaties under the McKinley law
were Barbadoes, Guiana Jamaica, Lee
ward Islands, Trinidad and Windward
Islands. The treaties were negotiated be
tween Sir Julian Panncefote and Mr.
Blame on February 1, 1892, and President
Harris n put ttiem into effect the same
day uy proclamation. In that cisc the
British Government acted for tne colo
nies, but subsequently each colony passed
a law carrying the r-'ciprocuy arrange
ment into effect. The same procedure
would be observed in the present case.
The aggregate trade of these British col
onies is very . great, exceeding that of
some of the first-class nation . When
the last treaties were made the exports o.
tho colonies were $33, 000.000 annually and
the imports about me same. The main
shipments to 'he. Unit* d States were:
Sugar, #3, 730.00 J: fruts, $3,100,000; coffee,
$817,000; cocoa, $800,000; druns and chem
icals, $053,000.. Tub shipments from Ihe
United States to the colonies were mainly
breadstuffs, provisions, manufactures ol
iron, steel and wood and cotton.

Miss Ella A. Green of Yolo
County G.vas Her Hand
in Marriage.
Led to tha Altar by Lieutenant-
Colonel Jackson of the First
Cavalry.
i Special patch to The Call.
"WOODLAND, Nov. 3.— One of the social
events of the season was the wedding to
day of Miss Ella A. Green, daughter of
Charles E. Green, to Lieutenant-Colonel
i James Jackson of the First Cavalry,
IT. S. A., at present stationed nt Portland,
Or. The ceremony was performed at the
residence of the bride's mother, near
Plainlield. The spacious parlors, library
and dining-room were elaborately deco
rated. The stars and stripes, autumn
leaves, smilax, ierns, plants, fruit, vines
and evergreen foliage were artistically
blended into many new and original de
signs, and the effect was very attractive.
Rev. M. M. Gibson of San Fran
cisco officiated, and the nuptial
ceremony was performed in the
presence of a large company of relatives
and intimate friends, including guests
from San Francisco. Portland and Sacra
mento, as well as Yolo County.
Upon the conclusion of the ceremony a
wedding breakfast was served In tbe
dining-room and library. More than tin
hour was sp nt around the breakfast tube,
after which Lieutenant-Colonel and Mrs.
JacKson were driven to Davisvtlle, where
they boarded the afternoon train for San
Francisco. After a few days' honeymoon
in this Stale they will leave for Portland,
Or., their future home.

MAIL TOR DAWSON.
Newspapers In Letter* Will Not Be Car
ried Even at Letter Postage.
Since public notice was given in The
Call several weeks ago to the effect that
only letter mail would be accepted on the
overland route to Dawson via Dyea, a large
number of persons, desiring to inform
their friends in ; the snow-bound gold
fields of what was happening in the worid
outside, inclosed newspapers in envelopes
and paid letter-postage on them. Such
packages will not be taken, no matter how
much postage may be paid on them, be
cause they are so bulky and weighty that
the mail-carrier cannot carry them with
his dogs and sleds. All such mail will be
held over until spring and then sent by the
Yukon River, starting from St. Michael.
It will be seen that it v ill be better and
cheaper to write the news briefly in a
letter to weigh not more than an ounce,
for on the mail route over the pass and
down the river to Dawson City ounces are
pounds. The Canadian Government has
established mail stations at Lake Tagi-h
and Lake La Barge, wher- mail wil. b
distributed and taken up for the benefit
of persons wintering in nose place-.
