PACIFIC GROVK, Jan. 3. — The most
prominent figure in to-day's session of the
Pacific Coast Students' Conference was
John R. Mott, general secretary, of. the
World's Student Christian Federation.
Mr. Mott arrived last night and from the
first moment of his presence at the con
ference his powerful personality Im
pressed Itself upon students and leaders
alike. This morning Mr. Mott addressed
the members of the missionary institute
department He also took part In every
exercise.
The platform address, this morning was
open to the public and a' Iar&re audience
was in attendance. E. T. Colton, inter
national college secretary of the Young
Men's Christian Association and chair
man of this convention, presided, and
some excellent music was rendered by the
conference quartet.
Rev. Dr. H. C. Mlnton. president of the
Presbyterian Theological Seminary of San
Anselmo, delivered the first address at
the public session, hSe theme being "The
Authority and Inspiration of the Holy
Scriptures." The question of to-day, said
Dr. Mlnton, is not so much what does
the* Bible say as have we a Bible and is
it authoritative. Then, with clear, logi
cal arguments, he proceeded to solve prob
ably the most difficult as well as one of
the mos\ Important fundamental ques
tions of the Christian religion. The dis
course was rather technical, for the
speaker lost slKht of the (general audience
and talked straight to the trained minds
of the college men, to whom he came to
speak, but It was full of Interest to all
who heard it.
At the close of the public session. John
R. Mott addressed the, students on tho
splendid results of the past decade of
work among college men. Henry J. Mc-
Coy, general secretary of the San Fran
cisco Young Men's Christian Association,
and Dr. Minton addressed the' Life Work
Conference.
The convention held open house In the
museum lecture-room to-night, and a
function such as only a lot of students
could have carrled t out was enjoyed.

tendent of the work of his church in Cali

He was born in Cortland.N. Y.. in 1S32, and
was the son of an Episcopalian preach
er. His education was obtained In Wes

ing year he Joined the Black River confer
ence, where he sprved several Important
churches. In ISfil he was transferred to
Cincinnati and was appointed pastor of

ber of- the Detroit conference and pastor" of
Central Church, Detroit, the leading
charge In that city. In 1873 he wa« elected
to the chair of practical theology Mn Gar

SAN J»3E, Jan. 3.— A number of promi
nent citizens of the southern end of Santa
Clara County are advocating a division of
the eounty and the creating of a new
county with Gilroy as the county seat. It
is said a determined effort will be made
to secure the passage of such a bill at
the coming session of the Legislature.
This matter of forming a new county has
come up annually for some years and its
advocates now believe there is a chance
of it being carried. Henry Miller, the
cattle king, has cherished euch a hope
for years. His home is near Gilroy and
he has large Interests there. For some
time Miller and other cattle and dairy,
men around Gilroy have been possessed
of the idea that they are not getting fair
treatment from the Board of Supervisors
of this county, because of a law passed
compelling the examination and testing
ot milch cows to see if they ¦were afflicted
with tuberculosis. Miller successfully re
sisted the attempts of Veterinary Spencer
two years ago when the latter attempted
to kill six of his cows that were afflicted
with tuberculosis, and his action resulted
in the ollice being abolished at that time.
Apsemblyman Ell Wright, who left for
Sacramento to-day, stated he had been
informed the people of the southern end
of the county would ask the Legislature
to create a new county. He said he was
not advised, however, as to the details.
There Is an especially rich country
around Gilroy. Las Animas has been
suggested as the name of the new county,
with, Gilroy as the seat of government,
it is said Miller has offered to give the
nites for what county buildings would be
I needed.
Should such a bill be introduced a warm
fiKht would be made against it by the bal
ancf of the county.
ll is eald the division haa progressed so
far that a prominent San Francisco at
torney is drawing up a bill looking to
such an end that will be presented to the
Legislature. The division line will be run
ea*<t and west, just south of Coyote, some
fourteen miles from here. It Is also pro
posed to annex a strip of San Benito
County, which adjoins Santa. Clara. San
Benitoites approached on the matter are
paid to favor the move. The area of the
proposed new county is estimated at 450
to 550 square miles, with a population of
about 5000. The total assessed valuation
of the territory In round numbers is
•*S,000,OGO.
With Gilroy as Its Seat.
ETROIT, Jan. 3.— Bishop W. X.
Nlnfle, aged CS years, of the
Methodist Episcopal church, was
_ found dead in bed at his home
here to-day. It is thovight the
cause of death was heart trouble. He at
tended a funeral yesterday and caught a
cold.
Deceased had been a Bishop of the
Methodi5t Episcopal church since 1SS4. He
was at one time a missionary In India. He
leuves a wife, three eons and one daugh
ter.
Yesterday the presiding ciders of Michi
pan held a conference and decided to sell
the episcopal residence here, now occu
pied by Bishop Nind*»'s family, because
the churches if Michigan outside of De
troit and other cities had failed to con
tribute sufficient funds to maintain it.

BAN TEDRO. Jan. 3.— One of the most
disastrous fires that has ever been expe
rienced here occurrr-d in the small hours
this morning. The Union Hotel. Murphy's
Hotel, five saloons, two butcher shops, a
general merchandiso store, three fruit
stands, three restaurants and a furniture
store were burned to the ground. The
total loss is estimated at $50,<X». The in
surance will aggregate about $20,000.
The alarm was sounded at 1:45 a. m. The
f.ames were first observed in an Italian
fruit store In the rear of J. L. Griffin's
Seaside market. In the dry wood of the
fragile buildings the fire gained rapid
headway. Sweeping along Front and
Fifth streets, the entire block was soon
In a blaze.
Citizens turned out and tried as best
they could to <o:;Sn<» the conflagration to
the block, and as there was little wind
their efforts proved effective. The flames
attacked the Union Hotel and that of J.
Murphy, both email structures near the
wafer front. These soon succumbed, and
the lire spread to the adjacent restaurants
and saloons, low structures, that served
to intensify the force of the flames.
The Esperanza saloon and that of Mur
r>hv were burned and Angelo Bessola's
followed. J. F. Nolkinson's saloon fartd
equally as bad, and then Charley Men
vig's place pave way. Melville's furniture
store Fhared th» general fate, and only
by deeperate efforts was the City Hall
saved. . A line was formed and the men
engaged in working- the hose were kept
from suffocation by turning another
Ftreaai on themselves.. The energetic ex
ertions of the volunteer department alone
prevented the loss of all the municipal
records and the building In which they
were stored.
Three firemen entered a wooden block

l.OS ANGELES, Jan. 3.— Coroner Hol
land -was notified this morning of the
finding of the headless corpse of a man
near the summit of Mount Lowe, and will
go up to-morrow morning- to make an In
vestigation. T^he man had evidently been
dead for several months, as the corpse
was practically; a skeleton, though fully
dressed. No trace of the skull was found
in the vicinity of the body, and this looks
as though there might be some mystery
back of the affair, as it Is not believed
that wild beasts would have carried off
the head alone and left the rest of the
body undisturbed.
The grewsome llnd was made by some
truf-sts of the hotel while they were ex
plorlnp the mountain on the east side,
from a> quarter to half a mile beyond the
hotel. It was lying in the bushes, and the
discovery was made by the 4 merest acci
dent. ¦ ' , ,
The clothing of the PkPleton would seem
to indicate that the deceased was a man
in reasonably good circumstances, being
of fair material and well made. The cufl
buttons were in the, cuffs and $1 42 in
money whs found In the pockets. A gold
watch anil chain' wore also found on the
corpse, all of which would indicate that,
in matter what else was the motive, It
was not robbery.
Not a slip of paper or anything else was
found by which the identity of the corpse
could be established.
At the Echo Mountain House no ad
ditional facts could be ascertained. So far
as known no one was missing from the
hotel, and no explanation could be given.
It was at first thought that the corpse
might be that of one of the men who was
engaged in. fighting the mountain fires
several months ago, who .had been over
come and fell down in the brush and died.
Hut as against this theory it was pointed
out that It was highly improbable for the
reason that the skull was missing. This
fact was also urged against the suicide
theory, or the possibility of the unfortun
ate man having wandered away in the
mountains nnd lost his way.
. Hy some It is urged that the head being
missing' Is almost positive proof that a
crime has been committed; that the man
was probably lured into the bushes and
murdered, and the head severed to pre
vent identification; The fact that nothing
was taken disproves the robber theory
and leaves revenge the only motive for
the crime, if one was committed.
