Casey Yet Far From
Some of the Incidents That Made
the Double Life of Kelly a
Strange One in This
The confession of John Casey and the
announcement of the arrest of John
Kelly, dangerous members of the How
ard concpiracy, created yesterday a
local sensation. Casey's admission that
he accepted $5000 from Howard as part
compensation to murder "vVillard P.
a showed to what desperate
lengths the gang was ready to go in
crime. Howard and his fellow thieves
would etop at nothing, and the author
ities are being congratulated that they
have destroyed a nest of thieves and
murderous minded men. There is still
a hope that Casey may be landed be
hind prison bars and that he may be
prevented from inflicting injury upon
other communities. While he is the
least clever of the band of thieves he
possesses sufficient ability to make him

Judge's decision was based on mere

The Judge, after reviewing the cvi

propriety In his home and the Stivers
had absolutely no reason to complain
of his demeanor. His business was
transacted elsewhere.
In the downtown district, however,
Kelly was a different character. After
some stroke of fortune, as the theft of
the sack of coin in front of the t/T
--press office, he spent his money reck- j
lessly and with the liberality born of I
drunkenness. He was a welcome guest
at evil resorts and the saloon men
looked upon him as a benefactor. Then
his extravagance would pause until an
other raid and so he continued to the

The police claim that while they have
not caught up with him they have not
been very far behind him and they
have every reason to believe that they
will soon capture him. The confession
of Casey of the diabolic plot to murder
Green, in connection with other evi
dence In the possesion of the authori
ties, will make the outcome very dis
agreeable to Howard if ever he is
caught. When the capture is made the
police will reveal their discoveries.
The Evidence All In and an Argu
ment on Motion to Dismiss to
Be Made This Morning.
The preliminary examination of Joseph
P.' Frenna on the charge of murdering
James P. Turner was continued before
Judge Graham yesterday, and this morn
ing after hearing the arguments of coun
sel the Judpe will render his decision.
The first witness called yesterday was
Policeman "William M. Ross, who testified
to arresting the defendant In room 27 oi
the Crocker building. Defendant gave him
the revolver used in the shooting and
Bald that he did it to protect himself.
Dr. John I>. Zabala, autoDsy physician,
;bed the nature of Turner's wounds.
There was one on the hand, one on the
shoulder and two on tfie back, one of the
latter piercing the heart and being almost
instantly fatal. AH the shots were lired
from the rear except the one on the hand,
and it might have been siioi from the
or rear.
Policeman George Tracey testified that
when Turner's clothing was searched no
weapon was found, and Deputy Coroner
Flanagan on bein« recalled gave similar

i utlon, and Attorney Collins, the spe
cial prosecutor, took the stand and testi

reference to the i
Charles E. Gregory, real esi I
room 27, testified for the defense that he
had business transactions with the de
nt, who was in the habit of coming
to his office in the morning. He had told
the defendant t" brinj r as to the
en County property which was intro
duced as evidence Tuesday.
Attorney Hosmer then offered in eyi
an abstract record of a quitclaim
' : "in Frenna and his wife to Turner
nd in Lassen County, dated October,
lv.~, and recorded March, 1899; also an ab
stract of .'. conveyance from Turner and
wife to .lames F. Fitzgerald of the same
land, dated February, 1899. He then
made a motion to dismiss on the ground
that nn felonious intent had been shown,
and it was to argue the matter
this morning.

Views of the Late Min
ister to Siam.
The Future of the Pacific Coast
States and the Orient Will Be
the Subject of His
Hon. John Barrett, late Minister to
Si;t:n. will arrive In this city on or about
the 19th Inst., atxl the commerlcal bodies
hero are making arrangements t<> give
him a reception In keeping with hin posi
tion and intelligence. While here the
gentleman will deliver one 'or perhaps
more addresses upon American and par
ticularly Pacific Interests in the Far Kast.
Mr. Harrett is a native of Vermont, antl
while at Dartmouth College, he wrote a
number of articles which were published
In tho magazines and newspapers of
the United States. One of his choice sub
jects was "The New South."
Soon after graduating ho came to this
city and lived here and in Oakland a
while in IKM. In 1894 he was appointed
by President Cleveland as Minister to
Slam, being then the youngest Minister
of the country. While abroad the new
Minister made a number of visits to
China, Korea, Indio-China, the Straits
(Settlements, Java and the Philippines.
During that time he has made a special
Ftudy of trade and commercial condi
tions and possibilities of the countries of
the Far East. When it was known that he
was to return to the United States, the
local Chamber of Commerce made an
effort to have him come home by the way
of San Francisco, but the pressure of
Eastern, and, In fact, European, commer
cial bodies to have him address 'them
caused him to visit the Continent and his
native State before coming here. Last
June the Chamber of Commerce sent to
Mr. Barrett an invitation to visit this city
to address the commercial bodies and
the public upon his observations relating
to commercial affairs in the Orient. After
some correspondence he wrote Secretary
Scott from New York under the date of
August 27 in the following vein:
I beg to inform you, in accordance witl\ the
kind suggestions of your previous letters, that
I shall arrive in San Francisco on or about
the 19th of September, but not later, and shall
remain there for the next seven days. What
ever date in that time you may decide upon
for me to comply with your invitation to speak
■will be satisfactory to me. May I suggest that
you ask other commercial bodies, like the Mer
chants' Association and Wholesalers' Associa
tion, to Join with you on this occasion? It is
my purpose In my address at San Francisco to
treat of this question of our commercial oppor
tunities In the Pacific and Far East in the
most exact manner that I have yet taken It
up, and should I>e mucn honored to have as
large and Influential a hearing as possible —
like those kindly accorded me In the East.
You probably know that I am particularly In
terested in San Francisco's taking advantage
of the great opportunity before her, and 1
shall make special reference from that stand
point. • « .
The officers of the chamber will at once
send to Portland. Or., where Mr. Barrett
will be between the Sth and 17th, to learn
what dates can be announced for his ad
dresses here, as they will certainly have
as large an audience to listen to the gen-
I tleman as possible. Every commercial
and industrial body and the general pub
lic will be requested to be in attendance
I to give the ex-Minister a fitting re
i ception. His addresses in the East
and London attracted widespread atten
j tion. Mr. Barrett's views upon the mi
i fluences to advance between this coast
■ and the Oriental countries are summed
up in the following language:
First — The Nicaragua canal should be built
without further delay. Second — A cable should
be laid across the Pacific, touching at Hawaii
and the Philippines, as well as having branches
In China, Japan and Australia. Third—
larger and faster steamers should be, placed on
the Pacific, ami reasonable subsidies for carry-
Ing the mails should be given to the lines
making the best time and providing the best
ships. Fourth— American banks. . or connec
tions, of great American banks, should be Im
mediately established in such representative
places as Yokohama. Shanghai. Hongkong and
Manila. Fifth— At some central point, like
Shanghai, a permanent first-class exhibit of
American products; should be maintained.
Sixth— Business firms in America wishing to do
business In the Far East should srnd thor
oughly competent and capable men to represent
them In the Orient, and nut trust to second
rate men and catalogues. Seventh— Our diplo
matic and consular service, as far as possible,
should be placed under the" civil service, and
comir.ereinl attaches should be appointed to our
leading legations or consulates. Eighth —
Branch a of the American Asiatic Association,
which Is doing such good work here and In
Shanghai, should bo organized In all other
Asiatic cities. Ninth— And: finally, our manu
facturers and exporters should find out just
what the Orient wants, and make it. and not
expect the Orient to take what we make but
what they do not want.
All of these points and suggestions and
many others will be enlarged upon by the
brilliant speaker and diplomat from the
Far East when he .sneaks here.

Judgment Given Against the Garneti
Gold Mining Company for the
"Wages of Its Employes
With Costs.
United States Circuit Judge Morrow
yesterday morning handed down an opin
ion that will be read with interest and
received with joy by every wageworker
in this State. The opinion affirms the
constitutionality of the State statute re
quiring corporations to pay their crn
; ployes as often as once every month at
The opinion is in the case of Henry
' Skinner vs. Garnett Gold Mining Com
pany, a West Virginia corporation en
gaged In mining in Sierra County. The
action was brought to recover $3981 50
With legal interest from December 14, 1897,
costs of suit and an attorney's fee of
$500, and that the whole be adjudged a
first lien upon the property of the de
fendants, said principal amount being due
to the plaintiff and his assignors as
i miners' wages.
The defendant alleges that Skinner and
his assignors were employed under an
agreement to take their pay from the
r proceeds of the defendant's mine, which
: was being worked by them; that they
wouW not expect that their wages would
be paid monthly or regularly at all, and
that they would not expect any pay for
! their work until February. 1898. The de
; fendant also contends that the statute
requiring monthly payments, etc.. is un
! constitutional (statutes of California,
page 231). The defendant contends also
that since the provisions of sections 2
and 6 are not specifically referred to in
its title these two sections are unconsti
: tutional.
i Judge Morrow's opinion holds that their
unconstltutionallty, If established, would
not invalidate the entire act, but merely
! the sections involved. Article IV, section
24. «pi the Constitution of California also
provides: "But if any subject shall be
i embraced In an act which shall not be
expressed in its title, such act shall be
void only as to bo much thereof as shall
not be expressed in the title." The Su
, preme Court said: "In Abeel vs. Clark,
84th California, 229, we held that it was
not necessary thai the title of the act
should embrace an abstract of its con
tents. • * * The object was to prevent
deception by the inclusion of matters In
congruous with the subject specified in
the title."
Defendant contends further that the
statute discriminates unreasonably
against corporations, and destroys the
liberty and property of private contracts
in several of its provisions. This con
tention cannot be sustained, says Judge
Morrow, and there Is no discrimination
Involving the breach of any of the con-
Btitutional enactments Invoked by the
defendant The provisions that corpora
tions shall have a regular monthly pay
day and thai the employes of a corpora
tion shall In the event of a violation of
tin provisions of section l by the corpor
i ation be entitled to a lien on the n r °P
erty of the corporation, taking precedence
of all other liene except recorded nmrt
gagi - and deeds of trust, to a reasonable
attorney's fee If he is obliged to bring
an action at law to recover his wages,
and to an attachment against the prop
erty of the corporation, and that an un
recorded deed shall not be a defense to
such an action arc noi such as unjustly
discriminate against the defendant. * *
• The promise to pay wages after an in
terval of six months cannot be called gond
consideration for the alleged agre< ment.
Judgment is given for the sum claimed
and for an attorney's fee of $300.
