GAGE FIGHTS SHY OF THE FORGED BILLS TST ,,\ OS ANGELES. May 26.— The following interview H with Governor- Gage appears in the Record this H afternoon: ; . !¦ ft H|M^ .."You will notice," said the Governor, "that'no where in these articles Is it said that 1 had any knowledge of ; wrongdoing or participated knowingly in anything wrong. As I don't know anything at all about this matter I am not ¦ undertaking to say anything for Warden Aguirre. But I do know that some of the state ments made there are absolutely false. . , "What does the paper say about me anyway? Oh, it says that I slept between sheets paid for with State money and ate frutt that was charged to the prison. Well, how could I tell 'by the looks of the sheets. I am accustomed to sleeping in sheets and I sometimes eat fruit. But real ly, you. should know that , the Warden of the prison is re quired tokeep up a house where he can entertain visitors. The Governor Is properly: a guest of/ the Warden. The Prison Directors frequently . stop there and distinguished Visitors, from other States also accept the, hospitality of the Warden. Is it not proper that he should have sheets, towels, table cloths" and even night shirts? He is sup posed. to, heep up a well appointed houSe" where he can entertain" visitors, though some people seem to think he should -live in a cell like the criminals. ~ I. pass. a good deal of time at the house of the Warden at San Quentin and now I am told that I have unconsciously been sleeping on sheets that were' charged to the ; State. ; As 'a. matter >bf fact, I believe that every item enumerated in ; that bill for_$11213 was proparly charged -to-'the State; -Some, of the items I don't "recognize, : but -those I , do seem quite proper for the house of the Warden. .".'..:¦'•• ¦-.:'•" "Here" I see that the paper harps on the of convicts as clerks. in the departments. • Don't you know that it ; Is a common practice In all penal ' Institutions thus to utilize the, services of 'trusties' who are qualified ? "What- object :. would those convicts have in falsifying or forging a bill? They may have made- mistakes. Such things happen, in institutions having high salaried book keepers;-why should they not in this case? , , "Aguirre has ! gone »to San Quentin and"'sent" ahead ot him a telegraphed permission for a full investigation of the records in h|s .offlc^,". when _• he shall be present. It is sail here that members of my family received the benefit of these purchases.. I. suppose that anybody visiting in the house of the .Warden ¦ received proportionate benefit depending on how long he slept or how much he ate. But you will notice that the paper avoids saying that I know ingly, derived- any benefit. Bear in mind that I am too far away from. the scene, to be able to speak understarid ingly on this subject, tor I don't" know, anything about it. Yes, I slept at, the Warden's house and ate there,, so to that extent I probably participated in these benefits. ; ¦ "I see that -paper says that my son asked Commissioner Foley if the goods had arrived. ¦ That refers to my little lame boy. who "sometimes visits the Warden's house. -I suppose if that HtUe boy were to accept an orange while therelt would be' technically"' true that a member of my family participated In' the benefits of the fruit stolen from the public; stores. No, you will -see that Warden Aguirre will be able | to - show that ! everything Is quite straight at theprison and that. he nowise exceeded'his rights as War den. That' man took hold of that prison when it was in most deplorable condition and has put It in a shape that makes it a* credit to the State." . - v .

I know Warden Aguirre has often asked me about dubious charges, whether or not certain articles could be- charged to the State. For instance, he asked ine if he could not put a bottle of perfume in each room and charge it to the State. I told him it was ridiculous, to which he re plied that he knew one of the Directors liked cologne and he thought it would be nice to have a bottle in each apartment. A dozen other such questions were asked me at different times. --. PORTLAND,! Or.. May 26.— Lin Yeungr. a Chinese opium dealer, was found dead in his room on Second street this after noon.

The grievance of the boiler-makers, which caused tho strike, is over the dis charge of a workman named Wilson, on* of the oldest men, in point of service, in that department of the Santa Fe. Wilson was not actually discharged, but .was told, he would be unless he agreed to go to Selisman, Ariz., to work in accordance with the company's wishes.

" , ;• ... : NEW YORK, May 26.— The Presbyte rian General Assembly at to-day's ses sion chose Los Angeles, Cal., as the place of next meeting. The General Assembly acted adversely on an overture from the presbytery of Los Angeles # requesting that ministers ccming from the South Presbyterian Church be honorably retired with the same privileges as if they had served al ways with the church under the General Assembly. The matter came before the assembly in a report from the committee en ministerial alliance. The Rev. William 6. Young, D.D., pastor of the Emanuel Presbyterian Church of Los Angeles, ad vised-that the assembly act favorably on the overture. In the West, he said, there were many ministers, who had come from the southern branch, and favorable action by the assembly would help to bring the two churches together. The -Rev, Dt. Thomas Parry of WH kineburg. Pa'., chairman of the committee, took the opposite view. He said it would cpen the door- fer ministers of other de nominations to come to the Presbyterian church and claim the same privileges as the ministers who had served in the Gen eral Assembly all'their lives. . The Rev. Dr. ' Benjamin L. Agnew cf Philadelphia*- corresponding secretary of the board of ministerial relief, spoke in the same -vein. He said the result of granting the demand of toe presbytery of Los Angeles would be that many of the retired ministers who had always -been with the Northern Presbyterian Church wculd have their already scant allow ances cut down. "When the Civil War was closed," he said, "we would have been willing to vote for the union of .the two churches. But 1 am utterly opposed to holding out any money consideration to bring them over. They will hmve the same privileges as our members tf they ccme over to the prin ciples." The Rev. Dr. James D. Mcllvain of Bal timore said it would be unfortunate If the overture did not receive favorable action. "There is no difference with us between the church North or South," he 6aid. W"hen the question of selecting a meet ing place was taken up the Rev. Dr. Henry C. Minton, former moderator, ir.ade- a ten-minute address in favor of Los Angeles. He said Los Angeles had worked two years to get the assembly and should have it next year. The Rev. Dr. Richard S. Holmes point ed out that there was a great difference between the mileage for Cleveland and Los An seles. . ¦¦ ¦ : "If you want to burden the member ehlp for suph a big- £um as this difference would be, let the money go to home mis sions, or to' pay off the debt on Presby terian buildings. We have no right to do anything to favor a big corporation or railroad." At the moment when the moderator called for a vote on the question a mem ber of the assembly who refused to give his name, but who was said to be an elder from Cleveland, made the state ment that a railroad had conducted a lobby in favor of Los Angeles among the commissioners. The moderator declared the Cleveland elder out of order. Elder Ernest E. Baker from Oakland, Cal., said that the man referred to as a lobbyist was a member of the assembly, who had a perfect right to be on the floor of the assembly. The vote was 2S7 for Los An £e.'«s and 149 for Cleveland. Soon after the assembly adjourned sine die. ', Lower Telegraph. Bates. VANCOUVER. B.

BERLIN, May 26.— The directors of the Hamburg-American line have issued a cir cular divulging the terms of the agree ment arrived at between the Morgan ship ping combine and the Hamburg-American and the North German Lloyd lines. The two German companies undertake to pay the combine an annual sum equal to a dividend on shares amounting to at least 20,000,000 marks. This provision was agreed upon when the capital of the Ger man lines was 80,000,000 marks each and in the event of an increase in the capital, a contingency which . meanwhile has arisen, the combine reserves the right of increasing the annual sum accruing to it to an amount equaling dividends of 2o per cent of -the capital stock. The syndicate., in return, pledges Itself to pay the-Ger mans 6 per cent on a corresponding amount of capital, and not to send any ships to a German portr without the con sent of the German companies. The lat ter are bound to limit 'their traffic from British ports. • They can,..however,..con tinue the existing service. The Germans are not precluded from including in their ports of call hereafter British ports from Which the combine does not run services, nor from running their South American, Mexican and West Indian services from British ports, even though the -combine utilizes the same ports. The combine, on the "other hand, undertakes to allow two ships weekly In each direction to touch at French ports. The Germans are debarred from touching at Belgian ports with ships running to and from North America and agree not to touch at English ports exceeding seventy-five times for each company, each way,-, making an aggregate of 300 calls. The Germans are free to increase their sailings from French ports, in which case the combine is entitled to an increase, proportionately.
