•" '- - . Driags Sngar and Cement.
. • The steamship Seminole of the Brit
ish division of John D. Rockefeller's
great navy arrived yesterday with :
cement from Mojl and sugar from Ho- )
ilo. The Seminole was here during the ;
unpleasant happenings of last April.
She took from here a cargo of Standard
oil to Calcutta. Her return cargo con
sists of 5000 tons of sugar and 700 tons
of cement. Although an oil carrier, the
-geroinole burns coal, that fuel being
cheaper than oil In Calcutta, where i
she takes, into her bunkers about 3000
tons, enough to last her until she re
turns to the Indian port. She carries a
crew of Lascars and her officers are
paid on th« modest scale that rules in
the British merchant marine. The
operating expenses are reduced to a
minimum and herein lies the reason for
the Standard Oil Company having co
many of Its ships under the British
flag. The Seminole encountered fine
"weather from Moji, making the run In
twenty days at an average speed of a
little better than ten knots an hour.
The Ashtabula. another of Rockefeller's
tankers, arrived on Saturday and a few
hours after the Seminole anchored the
Winnebago, also' of the Standard Oil
fleet, was reported outside.
T*v© »w Ferry Steamers for !». P.
The Union Iron Works is preparing
plans for two steamers to be built soon
for the Southern Pacific Company's
ferry service between here and Oak
land. The new boats will be modeled
after the Berkeley and will have about
the same carrying capacity. They will
have greater draught, however; more
powerful engines and will be able to
chow their heels to anything In the
ferryboat line that plies In these
waters. By an arrangement of. water
tight bulkheads they will be rendered
practically unsinkable and will be !
•Quipped with a fire-fighting apparatus :
which will render them conflagration
Carries Few Passengers.
The Pacific Mail liner City of Peking
sailed at noon yesterday for Panama
and way ports. She carried a full
cargo, but few passengers. She had
twenty-five passengers in the European
steerage and four Chinese. Among the
cabin passengers were: Mrs. C. Adler,
Carlos Trotter, W. J. Saunders, D. L.
Mols, Miss E. Dougherty, Mrs. D. C.
Dougherty and L. R. Carper.
Draught Almost Proves Fatal.
' Ed Flaherty, a printer, who lives at
834 Page street, tempted providence t
yesterday by slaking his thirst with a :
decoction which . consisted chiefly of I
alcohol, .but which contained a liberal |
percentage of lacquer. He consumed j
about- a pint of the mixture. He was
unconscious when his friends got him
t*-. the Harbor Hospital, where heroic
remedies were administered. Flaherty
\u25a0will.' r.ecover this time.

body of James-F. Sloane, a pioneer
merchant of -this city, j was found .today
behind a pile |of .rocks tin. an ; alley ! near
his 'home on Sixth'avenueV near Stevens
street. '-'. 'Great -/gashes f ion^ his .;, head
showed I he , had beeni: murdered, ' appar
ently with -a '- hatchet,™ and ' a , ! trajl of
blood led from; the! alley, to Mr.; Sloane's
home." ;' Investigation';!; proved ' that; .he
was murdered in; his I room, stiortlylaf
ter j midnight, 'his : body \ being ; loaded
into a wheelbarrow,"; trundled to the "al
leyand dumped agalnat-the rocks. ;
.\u25a0• Sidney Sloan e/ the 17-year-old son of
the murdered merchant; was i taken into
custody, by the; police, shortly- after the
body was discovered. ' 'At ; first he pro
tested complete ; innocence, 'but" finally
broke down end-s confessed. ; He : said
he slew his : father; with s an" : ax •in the
hope pf. getting "|soo; which he: thought
his father was'; carrying.'. ..} Mr. Sloane
has been one of Spokane's leading- mer
chants for years, ; being .the j; senior
member of the; Sloanef Paine Company.
I % Investigation of the*" tragedy shows
it to be one of Uhe most, cold-blooded
crimes ever committed ; in 1 this- city.
• Sidney Sloane. who was the only
member of the family in the city/ ex
cepting his father; had made every pre
paration for covering up his tracks.
, HITS FATHER WITH AX.
• He had stolen an ax' froih his neigh
bor's back • yardvand -waited for his
father's appearance 'on the upper ! floor
of his, home. .Evidently he struck his
father on the head: with the ax as the
latter entered his room.". The noise
awakened Mrs. I : and Miss ayphers, who
were sleeping directly under ... Mr.
Sloane's room. . Sloane was ' a he^vy
drinker and they, thought Via* : : had
stumbled over, the center- table.
As soon .as r th 6 boy had searched
his . father's clothes for "the money,
which was the motive ' for the
murder, he went "to a neighbor's
back- yard and unloaded a lot of apples
from a wheelbarrow, and, carrying his
father's body downstairs, \u25a0: placed it in
the vehicle. He then ; wheel«d it around
the block and. dumped ; the body in an
alley. Returning, he washed out the
wheelbarrow, replaced the ;apples and
left; thejn in vv > their original location.
He carefully washed off the ax and also
replaced it. , ' ~j,'y;
WASHES AWAY /BLOOD.
There were rugs $n' the floor of the
bedroom and the -blood from the wound
on Mr. Sloane's head had soaked
through the rugs on to the floor. These
rugs the boy rolled up and took up,
carrying. them to the back porch, where
he thoroughly washed -'". them. ,He
washed the; floor clean' and placed sev
eral Indian blankets on> theV floor.
He arose early -this- morning, and,
calling to Mrs. Syphers, told her that
his father had; not been in that
night and that he was going out to
look tor. him. While he was talking
several policemen arrived and told the
boy that his father had been killed,
and as he acted suspiciously they/ar
rested him. \u25a0 . ' > . (•: . .
j The police suspect that young Sloane
had older: accomplices, including a wo
man. ' He'is also suspected of being the
burglar "who robbed two stores; in the
block '/.where his father was long en
gigedvln business. He Is", also sus
pected of being a; partner of the burg
lar who was shot and killed a^few

News of the
Camps of Nevada.
MANHATTAN, Aug. 28.— The most
recent of the . strikes "that are con
stantly being made in this camp is that
on the Big Pine property, located a few
miles south,. of town. The claim ad
joins and, is a part of .the JMayflower
property.\ The find was made in a lease
being operated by M. L. Taul in a shaft
he ds sinking bn the south side of an
immense 'i porphyry \ dyke that j cuts
through the' ground. The hole is down
barely ten feet, but is in oreall of that
distance, and high-grade shipping, ore
at that. ;The values, thathave been se
cured are phenomenal and it is stated
that: some °of : the prettiest- specimens
eyerseen in the camp have been found
by .- trie . miners. -" . " . ' \u0084 . ; \u25a0- '
The Big pine discovery is another
exemplification of, the old mining adage
that gold is. - where you , find it. Mr.
Taul has been working' a lease on -*..e
claim for some time, but heretofore has
devofced his attention .to the, north side
of the "dyke. During that time he has
had several '\u25a0 different "partners, who
tired of the quest and backed ; out, one
after the other. Taul finally Interested
a^Mr.- Burton in the lease,- although it
w^is' generally pronounced to^e of, no
value.Vand he at once started a new
shaft to the south of the, big dyke,
which struck right into a good ore
body. The vein appears to be a true
fissure and those who have . seen it
believe that it will. hold out at depth.
'The; Mail, of .'this camp has come out
for Jim Butler, the father of Tonopah,
ai the' Republican candidate for Gov
ernor of the State. The paper takes
this ;; stand despite Mr. Butler's an
nouncement.that he -has no desire. for
political honors, and.it is stated that
the -Republicans of . the camp enthusi
astically'„ indorse th« Mail's position.
Mr.; Butler is inspecting his properties
about Eureka and will not return for a
week, or more.
The' Tonopah Exploration .Company,
which Is planning to erect a big custom
mill in this camp, intends to give the
town a. power and water supply also.
J. H. G. Wolf, the engineer who has
been examining the holdings 'Of the
company about this camp, has complet
ed his work with most satisfactory
results. It has been ascertained that
the exploration company's water rights
at'Jett Canyon are over 1000 feet above
the level of Manhattan and ,that a flow
of 1,250,000 gallons can be supplied to
the town from this source. In addition
the company controls the forks of Twin
\u25a0Rivers, and it is estimated that from
1600 to 2000 horse-power can be ob
tained at that point; These . estimates
are.-based. on the present flow of the
streams.the smallest of the. year.
The, announcement of the Intentions
of the company is. greeted with great
rejoicing by the men in Manhattan, as
it is believed with mills, water and
power the camp faces, an era of great
The Manhattan Combination people
are doing their work in ground of good
milling value and several streaks in the
thirty-foot ledge show snipping value.
From these ore is being sacked and
shipped with great regularity, and it
should return the owners a handsome
profit from "all appearances. Itis the
belief of many people that this ledge
Is one of the richest as well as the big
gest inthe Manhattan district.
The Wolf ; Tone people are hard at
work blocking out ore in the mine in
anticipation of ; the; mill planned by' the
Tonopah ; Exploration Two
hundred; feet .of grade ore has
been stripped and left in place to be
sent to the mill later. -
In No. 1 shaft on the Yellow Horse
property two shins are steadily at
work. \ The hole Is down thirty-five
feet and shows ore, of .a good milling
grade all the way to the surface. At
the bottom of the shaft the Vein is
three and a half feet wide, and the
mine people say that it will break for
hoisting at about $40 to the ton. From

OVER A WILL
LEXINGTON. Ky.. Aug. 28.— a' decid
ed- social sensation is brewinsr in Rich
mond. Ky., regarding the disposal of
an estate valued at $100,000, left by the
late Thomas C. Bronston, brother-in
law of United States Senator James
B. McCleary, and uncle of former State
Senator Charles J. Bronston. of this
city. ; Bronston died childless, so far as
his lawful wife is concerned, but he left
a morganatic wife -In the person of
Mrs. Mary; Lakes, and he is the father
of two beautiful daughters, both of
whom are now married, and to this
woman and the children he left the
bulk of his fortune.
Blood relatives of the aged and
wealthy farmer are now considering
the question of contesting the will, but
as he was in hlsright mind at the time
of his death and the drafting of the
will, and as the" laws of Kentucky
place no limitation-' on the manner in
which property may be left. It Is be-
Hevd the effort will be useless.
