Sacramento County De
clares for a Model
Overwhelming Victory at the
Polls for the Bond
Members of the State Highway
Commission Gratified Over
the Result.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SACRAMENTO, Dec. 4.— One cannot
find a man in Sacramento County to-night
who will say he voted against the Folsom
boulevard. Of course there were a few
who did, hut when one tries to put his
finger on them they are not there.
The returns to-night show the greatest
victory for progress and prosperity ever
chronicled in the county. The result in
favor of bonding the county for the
building of the Folsom road is nine to
one. Even in the country, where some
thing like a showing was expected to be
made by the Silurians, they lost and a
two-thirds vote was cast in favor of the
project. At expert made an estimate of
the vote of Folsom and gave to the oppo
sition no more than twenty votes. When
the returns came in there were just three
votes cast against it.
The only portion of the county which
has placed itself on record as opposed to
the bond issue is found in the district of
Supervisor Jenkins. Jenkins said to The
Call correspondent that if the propo-i
--tion was defeated in his district he woul i
be willing to take the responsibility. Now
that it was defeated in that locality, the
people down there will no doubt be glad
that Jenkins has assumed Jo much.
The little town of Gait, as was expected,
piled up a big vote against the bonds.
There were 6865 votes cast. Out of this
very large vote there were only "63 in op
position to the bond proposition. The
vote by Supervisor districts was as fol

Totals 500.! 763
The vote of the city was 9 to 1; that of
the country was 2 to 1.
Commissioner Price of the State board
said to-night:
"The result is most gratifying. Had we
lost in Sacramento we woulu have been
discourag d. Now, on the contrary, we
feelmuch encouraged and believe that to
day's vote means a new epoch in the his
tory of California so far, at least, as the
Question of good roads is concerned. Our
v ctory here was more pronounced than
we expected, and I want to say right here
that the Commissioners of Public High
ways extend congratulations and their
hearty appreciation for the ass stance
oiven them by the San Francisco Call.
It has taken up the question of good,
roads in Sacramento County and the
result of its efforts is told in this over
whelming victory. Aeain, on behalf of
my associat s, I de-ire to ex. end our
thanks and appreciation to that paper."
G. A. Luhrs said: "I want to mate a
public acknowledgment of my gratitude
to The Call. It was the first paper to
take up the cause of good roads, and from
the commencement of this fight to its
close it has never deserted us for a single

PETALUMA. Dec. 4.— A boiler in the
D-street planing mill, belongine to A. W.
Horwege, exploded this morning, and it
was only owing to the small amount of
pressure at the time that no lives were
lost. The boiler has been considered un
safe for home time and continuing it in

and the owner of the premises. One
small boy was blown through the door

building badly wrecked.
Three Arizonians Who
Are Marked for
Outlaws Gather in Force Near
Bisbee on a Mission of
Officers of Several Towns Prepar
ing to G va Them a Warm
Special Dispatch to The Call.
BISBEE, Ariz., Dec. 4.— Black Jack's
gang was seen camped twenty miles south
of here, across tho line, to-day by a promi
nent cattleman on his way from Mexico.
There were nine men, all well armed, hav
ing good horse-, and they had apparently
gathered for some new exploit. The Mexi
can knew three of the outlaws well, they
having been cowboys in this vicinity for
a number of years. A cowboy whom he
met before reaching them told him
that the cutthroats were in the vicinity
for the purpose of killing three men whom
they had marked.
The first man they want is Bert Alvora,
the Willcox rizona) constable, «ho shot
and killed Bill King a lew weeks ago while
resisting arrest for drunkenness. King
was a cowboy who assisted Black Jack and
his gang to escape when they were so
closely pursued last fall, just after the
robbery of the depot at Huachuca siding,
and they have sworn to avenge his death.
The other men are Deputy Sheriff Bill
Hildreth and Lir.e-rider Sam King.
Hildreth has been hunting thes men
down for months, and it was he who first
connected them with the Grant-station
train robbery. Sam King is a marked
man, because he caused them trouble
after they had killed Line-rider Robinson
nearly two years ago. Two of these men
have been warned to be on their guard.
Hildreth left Tombstone this morning
for the line clone in pursuit of a clew to
the whereabouts of the gang, and could
not be warned. Should he run upon
them alone lie is a doomed man, and his
friends here to-night are very uneasy.
For certain reasons the posses were
taken off the trail. The impression is
that it was because they thought it use
less to pursue the robbers no the fast
nesses of the Ajo mountains, but such is
not the case.
The three members of the gang who
were arrested on Thanksgiving day at
Fronteras— Jessie William-, Tom Ander
son and an unknown are still separated
from the main gang and were seen yes
terday by a cattleman named Fi-'ier near
ihe Souse ranch at the base of the Ajo
Mountains. These three outlaw.-, who were
brown into jail at Fronteras on Thanks
giving day for "shooting up" the .town,
were held nearly four days awaiting word
from the United mates authorities. At
the end of that time -i notorious Alex can
outlaw arrived at Fronteras. had some
conference with the authorities and the
men were heavily fined and turned loose.
They rode to La Morita Custom-bouse
and slept there Sunday night ant' made
for the Ajo Mountains in the morning.
They left an old stocking in a room at a
hotel there with fourteen silver dollars,
which are in the hands of Fred Dodge,
Wells, Fargo & Co.'s detective.
The coins are very badly mutilated,
some being b*nt double by the force of the
explosion of the safe in the express-car.
From persons at La Morita it was learned
that tney inquired as to the time when
the paymaster went through there to Ka
cosari to pay off tho men at work in the
mines there, and this may bo the reason
for their gathering here.
Telegrams are being sent in all direc
tions to-night reporting the whereabouts
of the robbers. Olhcers have been work
ing very quietly, and it is thought the
drawing oft of tie posses is a blind to gain
time to notify all small frontier towns in
Mexico to be on the lookout and arrest
the outlaws should they show up. As
soon as this is done a raid will be made
on the gang from several quarter*.

San Jose Grange Takes
Up the Hawaiian
Strong Resolutions Which Are
Practically Certain of
Declare the Acquiring: of the Dis
tant Islands Would Be a
Crave Error,
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SAN JOSE, Dec. 4.— The meeting of San
Jose Grange this morning was an enthu
siastic one. A resolu. ion strongly oppos
ing the annexation of Hawaii to the
United States was introduced and, after
being read, was laid over until the next
meeting for discussion. The grange has
tak-n great interest in the Hawaiian
question and at several ot its meetings has
discussed the matter. When the resolu
tion conies up it will be strongly supported,
for a great many of the members are op
posed to making tbe islands a part of this
The resolution introduced at to-day's
meeting was as follows:
Resolved, That we, the Patrons of Hus
bandry, believe the annexation of Hawaii by
the United Stoles will be fraught with great
danger to the people of this country, and es
pecial y to the peope of this Stale.
Resolved, That we request our representatives
in congress to use all nonornble means to pre
vent the annexation of these islands, for the
following reasons:
The Hawaiian Islands are mainly masse* of
rocky and sterile mountains, and the climate
is unfavorable to the workingmen of the
Kuropean races, consequently the great body
of people will always be Asiatics and Polyne
sian . At presont the population is 109,000,
ot whom only 0700 are Caucasians.
Our American institutions are entire. un
suited to tne government ol dependencies, trier
fore Hawaii would soon become a Sir c of our
Union, controlled and managed by great cor
porations and political bosses.
As sugar is the only product of any consid
erable value on these islands, and as this
product wou.d come directly into competition
with the beet-sugar industry of this coast, we
believe this new and promising industry of
ours would bo greatly crippled, and pei haps
The election of officers for the ensuing
year tesulied as follows: Worthy master,

Resolution Introduced Before the Mas-
sachusetts Reform Club Referred
to a Committee.
BOSTON, Dec. 4.— At tonight's meet
ing of the Massachusetts Reform Club,
Samuel Y. Nash offered a resolution for
Hon. Mco:field Storey protesting against
the annexation of Hawaii to the United
Representative J. J. Meyers hoped that
tbe club would not take action on the
resolution until the matter had been fully
discussed by the members and understood
by them. Mr. Meyers moved that the
resolution on Hawaii be referred to the
execut.ve committee with full power.
After some talk, in which a little oppo
sition manifested itself, Mr. Meyers' mo
tion was adopted.
Estimate of the Number of Gold-
Hunters to Start for
the Klondike.
England Alone Will Send One Hun
dred Thousand to the Richest
Gold fields.
A gentleman recently arrived from the
East by way of Seattle, called yesterday
upon Collector of the Port Jackson and
made some statements of a highly sensa
tional character with regard to the cold
diggings in the Klondike and the world
wide interest that is being taken in them.
He claimed to have reliable-information
that England alone would furnish 100.0 CO
persons who would start in the spring to
tempt fortune in the frozen depths of the
Klondike. In Seattle, he estimated that
to-day there are 30.000 strangers from other
places wintering there who are waiting
until the spring to go to the diggings.
Some of them are erecting tents in which
to live until that time.
There is much more excitement in the
Eastern States than there is in Cal fornia
regarding the vast fields of gold in
Alaska, and it is believed by mining men
that there is more gold in Alaska than in
any other country in the world. The
gold beds are believed to extend over
thousands of square miles.
The gentleman reported also that the
excitement In New York, Boston, Phila
delphia and other cities is intense, and
that the migration or people from those
cities to the Pacific Coast in the spring
will be more remarkable in point of num
bers than it was in the days of '49 and '50.
He said that the people, especially tua
business men of San Francisco, are asleep
as to the importance of the matter, and
that if they do not wake up soon they
will lose one of the best opportunities for
trade that they have ever bad.

Reinstated as Military
Instructor by the
Superin'endent O'Brien's Ac
tion in Deposing Him
Amador County Citizens Petition
for an Investigation of the
Special Dispatch to The Call.
IONE, Dec. 4.— After a lengthy consid
eration of the case of Major R. M. Blair
the Board of Trustees oi the Preston
School late last night reinstated Blair as
military instructor at the institution.
This action vindicated him of the charges
preferred by Sup-rintendent O'Brien,
when Blair was ousted recently from his
Dr. Brown made a statement of the
trouble to the board. He said that two
boys were imprisoned in the tower, with
orders that no one be permitted to see
them. This order was given, said the
superinti lent, because on. several occa
sions when boys had been rightfully pun
ished some one had obtained exaggerated
statements from them and made them
public as accusations against himself.
Blair had disobeyed orders by goinc to
the tower, talking with the boys and re
porting that they were somewhat bruised.
Captain Hu.;h B. Cox testified that
Major Blair came to him and demanded
ihe master key, which was refused him.
Blair then went to Captain Timothy Lee,
ob aincd the master key from him and
visited the tower.
Watchman Scully, who overheard the
conversation between Blair and Cox, de
clared on the witness-stand that nothing
was said about where the orders to permit
no one to enter the tower came from. - As
to his own discharge, he bad been given
no reason for it.
Captain Cox was recalled and asked as
to tbe condition of the two boys in the
tower that morning. He said that one
had a black eye, while the other had been
somewhat bruised by the punishment in
flicted upon him. The boys had been dis
ciplined by one of the instructors. Cox
was a-k«d if he knew of boys ever being
punished too severely, ana he replied in
the affirmative, citing the cases of Rod
erick and Russell.
Major Blair was questioned as to the
orders barring entrance to he tower. He
said they were delivered through subordi
nates of his, and in consequence he was
not disobeying orders in ignoring them
The board spent an hour in executive
session, and at the end of that time re
ported having adopted a resolution rein
stating Bl .ir, and thus vindicating him of
all charges.
The following petition was drawn up
late this evening and circulated among
the business men of lone, a large number
of signatures being obtained:

Salt Lake Citizen Ex
pelled From the
Seeming Evidence That His
Offense Was of a Politi
cal Nature.
Said to Have Been Disc pllned for
Aldlnt? a Non-Mormon
Of Ice-Seeker.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SALT LAKE, Dec. 4.— Throughout the
city to-day there is much excitement and
indignation because of the action of the
teachers' quorum at the First Bishop's
Ward in expelling Irom memoersbip
James Charles Bowen, whose offense ap
pears to have been that he worked for the
elec ion of E. B. Critcalow (non-Mormon)
to the school boar I and helped, there
fore, to defeat Charles W. Symons (Mor
mon). Critchlow was on the regular
ticket, is a man of good lepnte and stand
ing in the commnnity, but there were
some Mormons who opposed him and
Symons was nominated in his stead.
Although the manifesto issued some
years ago by the high officials of the Mor
mon church declared the church was out
of politics and that its members w re to
join whichever of the political parlies
they deemed best, and while for a time at
least there was every reason to believe
that the leaders meant what they said,
there were evidences at several late elec
tions that church influence, or the influ
ence of high officials ia the Mormon
church, had been used and was being
used. In the last municipal campaign
this was very noticeable and was freely
commented upon by both Mormon ana
The leaders of the Mormon church are
in a position to either prove that Bowen
was expelled '"or reasons other than have
been stated or order his reinstatement.
Failure in either case will but confirm the
idea that is now prevalent throughout
Utah that tbe manifesto ot the leaders
was issue morel v as a blind.
"This," says the Tribune, once the bit
ter foe, but latterly the ally of th • Mor
mon peop c, "i* a serious matter. It
reaches beyond the school elections; it
Koes directly to the future of Utah, Its
peace, Its prosperity, its position in the
Union and the self-respect of the people.
Utah is never Roing to be fl slave State;
that matter was decided in 1565, so far a
the bodies ot men are concerned, and that
kin t of slavery is not half as degrading as
the slavery of the soul."
A prominent non-Mormon was heard to
say to-day: "I reer-t it very much, but
it looks to me as though the old fight was
once more t<> be renewed. God forbid."
The Democratic Factions Will
Contest for Election
It Is Generally Believed That the
Bainey Men Will Be Recog
It is generally expected that the meet
ing of the Election Commissioners on
Tuesday morning next will be a lively one,
for at that time the election officers for
the freeholders' election will be selected.
Both wings of the local Democracy claim
the right to representation, and the battle
between the Raineyites and the Sullivan
ites will be a bitter one.
If Registrar Hinton had the deciding
vote the Democratic officers would be
selected from the ranks of the Sullivan-
Diuprey forces, for he is listed on their
side of the war for local supremacy.
Those on tho "inside" of the situation
say that Rainey has the majority of the
Board of Commissioners and that the
candidates of his faction of t .6 party will
be recognized.
The executive committee of the Deu
prey-Sullivan general committee met last
night to consider names suggested for
election officers. The recommendations
from the several Assembly districts were
accepted, and a hard fight will be made
to have the candidates accepted. The
Rainey people have not yet agreed on
their election officers and will meet on
Monday night to complete their list.
The executive committee of the Repub
lican party also met last night to select
election officer *, but were unable to com
plete the work. They will meet to-mor
row night and agree on the officers who
will be recommended from the ninety
four combined precincts.
The County Committee of the Peoplejs
party met at I*ls' 2 Market street last night
and indorsed the nominations of Patrick
Swift and Joseph Rosenthal, who were
selected by the Raineyites to fill the va
cancies on tbe fus'on ticket caused by the
decimations of Henry F. Fortmaun and
Richard S Doyle.
It was decided aftera lengthy discussion
to change the monthly meeting night of
the committee to the first Tuesday of
each month. The constitution of the
party was amended so that in future "any
person who uses intoxicating liquors to
excess, or who habitually or fre
quently appears in public wholly
or partly intoxicated thereby, is
not eligible as a member of tbe
County Committee of tne People's party,
and any member who apt ears at a meet
ing of the county, executive or campaign
committees of the People's party parly
or wholly intoxicated, or who uses prt
fane, blasphemous or indecent language
therein, may at any meeting of either of
these committees be suspended therefrom
by a mejority vote thereof."

publican Irom Blackfoot, Mont., dated at
noon, says: A tcniDle wreck has just
occurred on the Great Northern road at a ;
point opposite the agency and at a dis- I
tance of nearly three miles.
The eastbuund passenger, due at Black
foot at 11 :55 last night, was nine hours
late, and was tearingdown the grade from I
Durham toward Blackfoot at a terrible
speed with two engines and a snow-plow |
in advance. M dway between the two sta- \
tions the engine and snow-plow were de
molished, from what cause is not Known.
Both engines were completely wrecked,
and it is thought both engineers and their j
iireraen were killed.
A frightful blizzard is prevailing and it
is impossible to see any distance. A
negro named Jack Ball of Havre was on
the train and made his way from the
wreck through the blinding storm to
Biackfoot for help. Teams with doctors,
bandages, etc., and laborers are being
