It seems when he was first approached on the subject of settling: down at El Campo he thought favorably of that resort. At that time he was told there would be but one picnic a week to disturb him. After- he decided to train there he found his presence wus be ing used as an attraction to draw more picnics to the grounds. To make matters worse some one announced that Jeffries and Pltzsimmons would judge and start all the picnic games. This was too much for the big boxer, who took the first train for Harbin.

Professor Thomas Dare, the scientific trainer of ex-Champion James J. Cor bett, is holding a whip hand on the big boxer these days' to prevent Jim from doing all of his training at one time. Yes terday Corbett did no work at all at his quarters at Croll's Gardens. His pro gramme on the day previous w'as the same. Jim now feels as lively as an un broken mustang and keeps Professor. Dare wide awake to determine which way the big fellow will next Jump. Dare be lieves all work and no rest would make Jim a dull fighter and he means to have his noted pupil take things easier. With him the trainer does not have to say, "Do this," but on the contrary the usual command is. "Quit that." Professor Dare is satisfied to see Jim lounge about In the open and breathe in his fill of healthy Alameda ozone. Corbett believes "*rhat this can be better done if he. goes on the road, but his trainer comes back -at him with* the theory that it is not how fast a man breathes but the manner in which he breathes that brings the best results. Dare holds that regular exercise at deep breathing, holding the breath and expanding the chest are the better ways of increasing the staying qualities of one's lungs. He says greater benefits can be derived from .this sort of exercise than tramping on the road. Corbett's Work .Cut Down. BAKERSFIELD, June 26.— The skin of one of the largest mountain lions ever killed in this section Is now in the pos session of Con Hogan. superintendent of the Armstrong ranches in this county. The animal, which measured twelve feet from tip to tip, was shot early yesterday morning by David Blay, foreman of Arm strong ranch No. 1/ a* short distance from this city. The lion had been stealing sheep and hogs. , Kills a Large Mountain Lion. That Lepley was not killed outright seemed a miracle. A minute before the explosion the workman was on the head of the big steel reservoir intending to examine the distillate fluid therein when he started down the ladder. Lepley was blown off. by the explosion and^a sheet of flame from the ignited oil shot by him. The heavy steel tank cover was blown 100 feet Into the air and landed with a crash. The shock smashed windows about the works and at Point Richmond. Employes hastened to the scene. Lepley was taken in hand by the works' physi cian and pumps were set to draw off the oil from the tank. There were 5000 gal long of distillate in the reservoir, much of which was saved. Those in charge at the refinery said they could not explain the cause of the explosion. The tank is used in one of the processes of oil refining and at the stage when the agitator goes into service acids are used on the base .fluid. It is sur mised that water came in contact with the working oil and caused a gas to form that proved highly explosive. The damage was not great, $1800 being the estimate. The tank will be repaired. The injured workman was burned on the head, shoulders and right side and was bruised badly. lie Is 40 years old, mar ried, and resides at Point Richmond. The attending physician says the patient will recover. POINT RICHMOND, June 26.— For the third, time since the works were built an- agitator tank exploded to-day at the Standard Oil Company's works, wreck ing the half filled 10,000-gallon receptacle and causinsr the serious injury of C. J. Lepley, in charge of the tank, who was badly burned and hurled fifty feet by the force of the explosion. " Agitator Tank Explodes at the Standard \ Oil Works. BAKERSFIELD, June 26.— The fire which has raged on Bear Mountain for several days is now out.' During Its progress the blaze swept over about eight sections, but fortunately did not destroy any buildings. The land company's ranch and those of J. P. Cuddebank and the O'Meara estate were affected, the land company being the heaviest loser. The flre presumably was caused by some campere on_th« road. Bear Mountain Fire Is Extinguished TACOMA, June 26.— Chief Deputy Grain Inspector King is making a tour of East ern Washington grain districts with In spector Arrasmith for the purpose of forming a correct estimate of the yield of the coming grain crop. King says the spring sown grain looks well but is late. He thinks, however, with the right kind of weather it will produce a fair crop, with the yield running probably 15 to 20 per cent below that of last year. The fall sown wheat seems to be particularly backward. King visited several fields where the growth was very thin. Whit man County, which was always one of the best wheat centers, will fall at least 20 per cent below the crop of last year. The indications -west; of Whitman County are very unsatisfactory.

WASHINGTON, June 2S.— Senor Que sada, tha Cuban Minister, has received advices from Havana official sources that the treaties concerning a coaling station on the Isle of Pines may be signed at any moment and that the probabilities are that they will be ratified by the Cuban Senate. He apprised Secretary Hay of these advices to-day. COALING STATION, TREATY MAY BE SIGNED SHORTLY The Supreme Court also decided yester day that Justice Lorigan. while Superior Judge of Santa Clara County, did wrong in issuing agrainst Myra Wright an injunc tion forbidding her to proceed with a suit against the Jersey Island Packing Com pany in the courts of San Francisco. The question involved was the ancient one 0/ concurrent Jurisdiction. Constable Beach and other officers af fected by this decision will serve their re spective local governments therefore for less money than they thought. Beach contended that the title of the last quoted law was .defective and the whole statute as amended was not re enacted. The court holds that the title was correct and that it was not neces sary for the law as amended to be re enacted because the new legislation was not such a revision as contemplated by the constitution in the provision quoted. In the case of the Code of Civil Procedure the revision was of such character, the court says. - "An act to amend an act entitled 'An act to establish a uniform system of county and township governments, ap proved April 1. 19S7.' by amending certain sections thereof, revising certain other sections and adding certain sections thereto." The legislation of 1901 was entitled Section 21. article IV of the constitution fays: "Every act shall embrace but one subject, which shall be expressed in its title. • • • No law shall be revised or amended by reference to the title, but in such case the act revised or section amended shall be re-enacted and pub lished at length as revised or amend ed • • • Constable M. N. Beach of Stockton Township believed the enactment uncon stitutional, and inasmuch as he. would re ceive more pay under the old law than under the new one. he brought suit against the Auditor of San Joaquin Coun ty in order that the distasteful legisla tion might be declared invalid. The 60-called county government act was declared valid by the Supreme Court yesterday. It was supposed by many of the States leading attorney* that this piece of legislation would fall flat when tested, as d«d the Code of Civil Procedure, and for the same reasons. lows : For alfalfa and cereals. $1 DO per an num per acre; for trees and vines. $- per annum per acre; for gardens. $3 jO per annum per acre; for cattle, etc., $31 per thousand gn!lons p<r annum.

The Redding Searchlight says that a recent traveler through the Coffee Creek district, in Trinity County, reports as fol lows regarding the game: SIERRA CITY MINES. Some account of the working of the mines near Sierra City is given by tha Nevada County Miner, which says: Th* outlook now Is good and many Improve ment* are in progress, with every Indication •if being of a lasting nature. The - .Hi-rra- Buttes mine has a twenty-stamp mill running on fair rock and Is pay-Ing small monthly divi dends to its stockholders. The Keystone has run a long crosscut and tapped its ledge, run ning along its course a distance of 300 feet, and it is believed to be good milling ore. The Butte Saddle he* been bonded for a term of five years. The Sierra- Butte Ko. 2, owned by Mr. Martin and some Ban Francisco men. prob ably will be worked this eeason. Several thou sand dollars has been expended on th« prop erty, but nothing has been done there recently because of the lack of water for power, it be ing difficult to get a satisfactory contract for the water. There are no Idle men about Sierra City, those not engaged in the larger mines giving their attention to small placer claims. The Yreka Journal says -that the Rus sian Creek mining district, on Salmon Mountain, just over the summit from Etna, is becoming one of the richest quartz mining sections in Slsklyou Coun ty. Regarding this district it says: • • The group of claims located by Music & Tetherow contain several pockets or kidneys, all of good size, some being at least two feet In width, with several more claims located by other parties. This i« a good locality for work ing ouarti. as there Is an abundance of water all the year round, sufficient for ample mill power, and the country affords fln« opportunity for running tunnels to strike ore and secure excellent drainage at came time. A small mill is now In operation at this locality for pros pecting purposes, and should an extennlvo per manent ledge be found a large mill will no doubt be erected. >!. A. Cardwell. who has bonded the, hydraulic claims of J. S. Lowden Jr.. at Hamburgh Bar. as agent for. Eastern capitalists, has gone East to complete arrangements for their development on an extensive scale In building a fourteen mile ditch from Scott Klver. He will also formulate plans in regard to opening up the ground bonded in Shasta Valley, near Snowden station, on the S. P. line for the development of coal and oil, the ground being adjacent to the coal mine recently opened by the Hlsklyou County Development Company. Much has been written about the new pipe line of the Standard OH Company, which ex tends from Kern County through San Joaquin County to Point Richmond, and some paper* have made an effort of late to convince the public that the gigantic scheme is not a suc cess, but !t now looks as If the system Is working all right. There was some trouble at first getting the oil started, as It was cool weather and the fluid was very thick, but now everything appears to be working smoothly. The entire line has been tested with water and found to be all right. The oil Is being forced toward Point Richmond and is expected to be running through San Joaquin County in a few days. A circular has been sent out by the San Joaquin Oil Company to its stockholders in which the statement is made that the company has accepted an offer to sell, at the rate of 30 cents per share, all. the stock in the Associated Oil Company that was owned by the San Joaquin Oil Com pany, and that this offer has been ac cepted. ' 7 The sum of $34,957 75 has been paid on this stock, and the balance due, which amounts to $664,196 75, will be paid on- November 1 next. Then, President John Bunting gives notice, the affairs of the San Joaquin OH and Development Company will be wound up. In the same circular the statement is amde that the consideration received from the Asso ciated Oil Company when the San Joa quin property was old to the Associated Oil Company was gold bonds of the Asso ciated Oil Company amounting to $196,7ii3 and 2,330,515 shares of stock of the Asso ciated Oil Company. Concerning the progres of oil through the great pipe line of the Standard Oil Company from the Kern River field to Point Richmond the Stockton Independent lays: BUNTING'S CIRCULAR. Large transaction* in oil are focusing public attention. Rumors concerning what is going on fire current. The par ties to deals are keeping their own coun sel. Nevertheless it is announced, on what would seem to be excellent author ity, that the Standard Oil Company has bought practically the entire output of the corporations known as the Home, and Chansior & Canfleld companies in the Coalinga field. This means that 24,0(10 barrels per month have been contracted for. the full period of euch supply K> cover five years.

The price mentioned in the contracts is stated to be 65 cents per barrel at the wells for the first two years and 70 cents per bar rel for the remainder of the five years' period. On this basis the selling com panies will receive $979,200 for their prod uct now contracted for in the next five years. Concerning the recent transactions of the Associated Oil Company much secrecy is observed. That some deal has been made with the Southern Pacific Company is generally credited. The story told by the Pacific Oil Reporter is that a com pany has been formed, of which Julius Kruttschnitt is the head, the other di rectors being J. _H. Wallaoe, W. A. Worthington, J. I*. Wilcutt and J. E. Foulds. This is the Kern Trading and Oil Company. The first act was to buy the stock of the Associated Oil Company held by the San Joaquin and Reed Crude Oil companies.

Failures this week were 273 in the Unit ed States, against 200 last year, and 19 in Canada, compared with 20 a year ago. NEW YORK, June 26.— Brafistreefs to morrow will say: Crop and labor conditions still present some irregularities, but six months' trade returns point to the fact that business has been better than a yaar ago and the situation as a whole shows favorable fea tures predominating as to the future. The feeling is that as time passes the latter will largely outweigh the fewnotable drawbacks to possible future activity. Unseasonable weather, cold in the 'East, rainy in the West, and dull retail trade, accentuates unusual quietness. in whole sale trade and retards crop development. The iron and steel situation on the whole seems to have improved somewhat. Large contracts have been made for rails by leading trunk lines and central West ern roads. The condition of other fin ished products is better and, even in cruder forms, the feeling is fairly firm, except for foundry pig iron. The railroad earnings are better than was earlier ex pected, despite flood interruptions in the first part of the month, and returns for the first week of June show a gain of 0 per cent ovor a year ago, while thos« for the second and third Indicate increases^ 10 to 12 per cent in excess of last year. Wool is firmer, largely in sympathy with primary markets, the new clip is being taken freely at advancing prices. \ Hides are firmer at Bcston. Sugor is steady and unchanged, the weather hav ing been against free purchases, but the small ,world!s crop precludes any weak ness. Wheat, including flour, exports for the week ending June 25 aggregate 3,518,152 bushels, against 3,617,415 last week, 3,382, 701 this week last year and 4,364,171 in 3901. "Wheat exports since July 1 aggregate 221. 607.6S9 bushels, against 248,688,350 last sea son and 215,177,724 in 1900. Business failures In the United States for the week ending with June 25 number 171, against 165 last week, 153 in the like week of 1902, 196 In 1901, 185 in 1900 and 158 in 1899. Canada failures were not re ported. R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade to-morrow will say: " No definitely unfavorable element is ap parent in the business situation, but there are several, uncertainties that en gender conservatism. In regard to distri bution of merchandise tho long period of low prices has curtailed trade in dry goods, clothing and other seasonable lines. Stocks have accumulated and pros pects for semi-annual inventories are not altogether encouraging. Railway 'earn ings thus far available for June surpass last Vea'r's by 10.2 per cent and. exceed those of 1901 by 17.4 per cent. After further moderate concessions in prices of iron and steel, especially in pig iron and partly finished shapes, the mar ket has steadied and there are Indications that no additional reductions of conse quence are probable for the present. Wool is unchanged and quiet. BLAZING FLUID BURNS WORKMEN Preparations for the funeral, which cost several thousand dollars,, were- com menced early yesterday morning. The scene was one of people hurrying to and fro and decorations were brought from* all directions. When the priests and the band of mourners arrived the street for nearly a block was jammed and it was with difficulty that the police kept the crowd from interfering with the funeral. Their voices, drowned by the wailing of the- mourners and the clang of the tom .toms.the high priests performed the last rites in the regulation Mongolian fash ion andUhe Cortege started for the ceme tery. At the latter place the services for the dead were repeated and the spirit left to go its way in peace. Bun was an old resident Bnd had been .ill about five months. He had employed in the neigh borhood of 4000 Chinese yearly 'to go to the northern fisheries and transacted most of such business for the large com mercial companies. Bun always recognized honesty as be ing paramount in -the make-up of the Mongolian and started the system of ad vancing money to men who sought em ployment with him. Each year sums ranging from $20 to $200 were advanced to thousands of applicants for positions several months before they sailed for their places of employment. As a rule each debtor showed up and went to work, and when he did all was well, but Bun was merciless when he detected a breach of faith and usually punished in a man ner of his own. Chew Bun Qoy, better known' as Jue Bun, the wealthy Alaskan fish dealer, was burled "yesterday morning .from his late residence at 711 Commercial street. The funeral was one of 'the most-elabo rate and best attended that has beenjheld for a number of years from the local Chi nese quarter.

Some years ago upon leaving Hon olulu he deeded his Hawaiian property to Bishop Ropert, since deceased, to be held' in trust.

Circuit Judge de Bolt last January, in deciding the case, ordered 145,000 turned over to Sumner, and several criticized some of the at torneys who represented him. They were paid 91O,0tK) in fees, and the court charac terized this transaction, as outrageous.

Thompson, charging them with profes sional misconduct and infidelity to their client in the Sumner case. Citation was waived, an immediate hearing demanded and the case was set for Monday. President Huber announced that as yet he was not thoroughly conversant with the situation, but that he would devote his time during the next week to mak ing a study of the difficulties which now beset the carpenters and joiners of this city. He said this was a peculiar fight, in that it was union man against union man. instead of union man against em ployer. He claimed it was the case of a local organization trying to coerce unions to sever their connections with the parent organization, even at the price of union ism itself. President Huber promised the men assistance. He said his belief was that the difficulties could be solved amic ably. . . On the other hand the District Council of Carpenters, representing three car penters" unions and the striking millmen. declares it will stand out for a recogni tion of the brotherhood stamp- on all union work, and it demands that the mill owners deal directly with them and not with the Building Trades Council. Between 600 and 700 carpenters and mill men gathered at Hamilton Hall to-night to listen to Grand President William D. Huber of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, who arrived last evening from Indianapolis, the international head quarters of the brotherhood.
