"The Beaux and Belles" octet Is the
Orpheum's star show of the week" and with a repertoire of everything that is good in their, line • and the best way of doing it whiles away a too short min ute to the nightly. delight of "the'Orpheum crowds. Mignonette Kokin is a fetching little dancer and Francis Le Page, John Geiger, Monroe, Mack and Lawrence, De Courcy Brothers, Thomas Baker, Joe, Myra and Buster. Keaton and the) blo graph complete the attractive bill. Next week the Alcazar will put on "Tennessee's Pardner," with Agnes Ran kin in the principal role. The Central has this week a good per formance of "The Cotton King," the big industrial melodrama. The mechanical effects, in. the great "cotton mill scene" are surprisingly realistic and "throughout the performance is a satisfactory one; Next week the attraction will be "The Great Northwest." "A Female Drummer" is doing rather dull business at the California Theater this week. It owes what merit it has to the efforts of Johnstone Bennett, who as sumes the leading role. The California's next attraction will be "Sporting Life," beginning Sunday nigh^. The big scenic production comes here di rect from extended runs in New York and Chicago, and among the many sensational features of the piece is a horse race and a realistic prizefight. Lillian Lamson, sister of Nance O'Neil, is the leading lady of the company. with Walter E. Perkins at the head of things. Perkins is naturally funny and he has a role in "The Man From Mexico" that suits him. One looks and laughs and that's the end of it. Mr. Perkins is well supported by the Grand Opera-house stock company, particularly by Miss Laura Nel son Hall as. Clementina Fitzhugh. There, are more laughs coming next week when "My Friend From India" will be the bill. ARTISTS WHO HAVE EARNED DESERVED PRAISE FOR PLEASING WORK, ONE IN GRAND OPERA AT THE TIVOLI, THE OTHER IN HIGH-CLASS COMEDY AT THE COLUMBIA THEATER. Deputy Fish Commissioner M. H. Cross brought a large consignment of black bass to this city yesterday, which will be sent to the Hawaiian Islands on the Sonoma. It has been determined by thorough . in vestigation that this species of bass can be propagated in the streams on the Is lands. Send Black Bass to Hawaii. In conclusion permit me to say that the crime for whltfh ; these men stand - Indicted ' is the blackest that has ever been committed in the history of this State; that, notwithstanding all the discouraging facts hereinbefore mentioned, I am nevertheless keenly sensible that the honor of both the State of California as. well as that of Modoc County is involved In this prosecution; and that I Intend to prosecute these defendants with all the vigor and energy at my command; and, to that end, I hereby direct you to proceed with the arraignment of Defendants Leventon, Brown and Kades, and to have their trial set for Monday, . the eleventh day • of November, 1301, or as soon thereafter as may be, having the cases so set that the defendant Brown will be first trled^ \u25a0_' . I am aware that certain newspapers in your county have seen fit to disparage the prosecu tion in this case, and have referred to my ef forts and those -of my subordinates therein in an unfair and apparently malignant spirit. I am also aware that- you were present with my representatives at. the examination of the lynching cases by your Grand Jury, and I am Informed by my representatives that you and they were agreed that the evidence, there ad duced, warranted the indictment of Leventon, Brown and Eades, and tbat you and my repre sentatives were fully convinced of the guilt of the men indicted: an<J; as you "have not as signed a belief In the innocence of the" Indicted men as one of your reasons for desiring to dis miss these cases, I am warranted m assuming that you still believe, as do my representatives, that the indicted men are unquestionably guilty. Denounces the Crime. As you are aware, I sent two of my deputies, Messrs. Post and Sturtevant, to your county to assist you at the examination of the lynching matter by your Grand Jury, the result of which was the Indictment of the defendants— Brown, Leventon and Eades.. I subsequently sent Mr. Sturtevant again to your county to assist you in certain matters incident to the case that came up : before your Superior Court, includ ing the arraignment of .these defendants. I have spent several hundreds of dollars of the funds of this office in an endeavor to aid you in en forcing the law. ' . I am aware that the Supervisors of your coun ty have rejected the claim of the shorthand re porter who took down the testimony given be fore the Grand Jury after having been advised by this office that the claim was a legal charge and should be t>aldt I am aware that a brass band went to 'your County Jail and - serenaded the Indicted men. 'The Attorney General at once sent a telegram in reply, ordering the arraign ment and trial of the defendants. Brown, Leventon and Eades. A - letter was also mailed to Mr. Bonner. It is in part as follows: I will not attempt to express my utter sur prise at the astounding contents of your com munication. That Modoc County Is willing to rest under, the awful and shameful stigma of the Lookout lynching I do not believe, nor can I reconcile the sentiment and suggestions of your communication with the official duties of a District Attorney.. \u25a0 _ . .

V , I arrived home ! yesterday afternoon to find that petitions for dismissal are being signed by leading citizens all over the county, irrespective of political lines or geographical. My candid judgment is the entire county desires It. I hon estly consider further prosecution entirely use less of these defendants. Even the Grand Jury Itself or a majority have expressed a desire for dismissal of the cases. Unless you can give me strong additional evidence I will consider It my duty to move dismissal of these cases. I think you and the rest of us can at this late day dis miss with perfect propriety to all concerned. I do not feel disposed to continue these mat ters. • . ' . ' " The astounding Information that the people and officials of Modoc County de sire to dismiss the charges against the three Lookout! lynching suspects, now iu confinement at Alturas, was conveyed '.o the Attorney General yesterday through a communication to Deputy C.

Commissioner B. B. Edson was J In • the chair and Blackstock was also present. Laumelster did not attend, the meeting. Edson opened the meeting by stating that the two railroad' companies ; -had pe titioned for a lehearinu of -the case. He read the' Southern Pacific Company's ar gument for a new trial, and at its close Etated that he thought that enough evi dence, had not been submitted In the caae and that he was in favor of rehearing. Commissioner Blackstock seconded the motion and offered a resolution to theef fest that pending the rehearing of tho case the new rate of 37 8-10 cents, ordere.1 by the Commissioners for transportation of oil from Bakersfleld to San Francisco, be discontinued and that the old rate of 42 cents be restored.' This motion was carried and Chairman Edson ordered that the rehearing -of the case be set for November 12. This action on the part of the Commis sioners created great surprise. - It . was thought that when the board made the? recent order reducing the price of thij transportation of oil it would be agreeable to all parties concerned. • CHEAPEST THIP OE ALL TO MONTERET— SANTA CRUZ.

The Grand Opera-house has a winner this week in "The Man From Mexico," but Mary Kelty as Agnes and Estelle Carter as Mrs. Van Alstyne are both good In their respective roles. Mrs. Sarah Cowell Le Moyne, in the new historical play, "The First Duchess of Marl borough," will follow. " "The Henrietta" at the Columbia, In the competent hands of Stuart Robson~and his company, is delighting good audiences every evening. A more finished and satis fying conception than that of Mr. Robson as Bertie the Lamb would be difficult to imagine and. Maclyn Arbuckle's Old Nick Is almost equally picturesque. Of the feminine members of the company Miss Dorothy Rossmore as the fascinating widow, Mrs. .Opdyke, is most pleasing, at the popular house. The opera is excellently cast, and went with spirit and considerable smoothness. For the first time this season Montanari is heard in a role that fully suits her, the grace ful and pathetic little figure of the Paris- Ian grisette, Miml, and she is wholly sym pathetic and pleasing In the part. Agos tlni is a splendid Rudolph, singing mag nificently and acting with ardor and truth. His duet with Montanari in the first scene was exquisite, Repetto Is a dainty Mu setta. playing and singing her part with grace and spirit. The Bohemian trio, Schaunard, Marcel and Colline, are re spectively sang by Zani, who does effect ive work, as the hungry musician: Fer rari, whose Marcel is conceived in a clever comedy spirit, and Dado, whose fine basso was invaluable in Colline's part. Dado was encored enthusiastically in the pathetic song to his old coat. Cortesi does very good work— he has been a useful member of the company this season— In the usual double role of Benoit, the hard hearted landlord, and Alcindoro. - The opera is admirably staged and costumed, and barring longish waits between acts goes easily and smoothly. It is a little boisterous in places, but will doubtless tone down with further presentments. "La Boheme" goes again to-night and "Norma," with Avedano, Barbareschi, Pollettini and Dado, comes to-morrow.

The perceptible change in the tempera ture yeuterday from that of the previous two days was due, according to the Weather officials, to the advent of the south" wind, which occurred Tuesday night — The first rain for three weeks cam© with the wind and although San Francisco was not affected to any -considerable extent, the country to the north was treated to a series of showers. Throughout Southern California the weather was cloudy, with Btrone "Kinds. It Is predicted that the city will be vis ited- wliij more rain to-day than yester day, with perhaps a heavy downfall to ward night. The raisin growers have been warned to shelter their crops with out furrher delay and shipping interests have b«en Informed that there -will be a 6trong southeast gale along the coast Van den Berths File Another Contest Flora, Julie and Daisy Van den Bergh and Eleanore Van den Bergh Geist filed a contest yesterday of the will of John P.

Secretary Holbrook of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ar rested M. C. Hogan of South San Fran cisco yesterday for the abuse of his horses. Out of fourteen of the beasts owned l>y Hogan It was found that five \u25a0were unable to perform work and they were accordingly condemned. Arrested for Cruelty. Baron Alexander Kahlbahrs. the Rus sian general who commanded the Czar's troops in Manchuria, arrived from the Orient on the steamship City of Peking yesterday. He is en route to St. Peters burg, but whether to be disciplined re mains to be seen. It has been stated that the famous order which was interpreted In Manchuria to read: "Drive the Chinese Into the Amur." in reality read: "Drive the Chinese across the Amur,", and that when the terrible news of the affair reach ed the Czar's ears he was much dis pleased. The general "gives no intimation that he is on his way to St. Petersburg to make any explanation to this effect When the villagers were forced into the river by the Cossacks it was estimated that about 15,000 were drowned. The river at places; was choked. Whole villages, \u25a0vrith their thousands of citizens, were wiped ofE the face of the earth, and not one was left to tell the tale of Russian cruelty. On the banks of the river every house was razed with the exception of tne 6tone and mud chimneys and a few lempies. General Kahlbars has been forty years a soidler and looks a man whom nothing would diiunt. Years ago he was appointed Minister of War for Bulgaria for honor able services. He was a member of the Interns tonal Commission appointed in 1ST9 to fix the boundaries in the Balkans. He entered the Kussian army in lfctil and has participated in every war since that time. His record is a brilliant one and this fact caused the Czar to appoint him to the supreme command of the Manchu rian forces in August of last year. He was then in Paris at the exposition. He re ceived a telegram from the War Depart ment to proceed with the utmost dispatch to Manchuria. He lid so, going out over the trajis-Siberlan Railway. General ICah bahrs said yesterday: I force 1 all the Chinese generals In Man cfcsiria ti> surrender, together with all their pien and arms. The last troops to surrender Before I departed from Manchuria were 7000 n}en. I janlcipated In four expeditions against the Chinese. I was In supreme command, and forced the Chinese back Into the mountains. The expelitlons were most difficult, and every result was accomplished after great effort. No carriages or wagons could be carried 'Into the mountains, and It was only .by pushing the Chinese backward that we finally brought them to terms. The subjugation of the province is complete, and It is entirely under the domina tion of S.ussia at the present time. This tisx opened the way for the trans-Si berian railway to conEtruct Its road down through the province to Port Arthur, riving a rtretch of railroad tfrcm the Yellow Sea to Moscow. At Port Arthur our Paeiac fleet is mobilized. At Tallen Wan the commercial ship, ping is gathered.
