Barry Baldwin, Jr., son of former JJnited States Marshal Barry Baldwin, lied at his home, 25)45 Washington street, from gas asphyxiation. Death was evidently the result of accident. The official board of the Methodist church at Los Uatos, Oal., believiug that many who attend church “are greatly annoyed and inconvenienced by having their view of the minister and of the pulpit obstructed by large and spreading hats or bonnets,” passed a resolution requesting “that all persons remove their headdress dunug the entire ser vice of the church.” The vote in favor of the resolution was unanimous. Stella Bruzis, a bride 17 years old, who endeavored to poison her husband with carbolic acid on the morning after their marriage several mouths ago, was arraigned and placed in jail at Tacoma. The charge against her is attempted murder. Her husband, Vincent Bruzis, recently secured a divorce, and Stella, thinking the trouble had blown over, re turned to Wilkeson, whence slie had fled on the day that she poisoned her husband. It came out later that Stella loved another uiiu and had married Bruzis only to please her father. Edward H. Hamilton, a well-known Ban Francisco newspaper man, was held op by three footpads at 2 a. m. while on bis way to his home at 1613 Washington street. He was relieved of his money and keys. Tho following day. however, the keys wore returned to Mr. Hamil ton's office in a small package which bore the inscription, "For the gentle man who was held up." Harry L. Elliott, the Oxnard youth who shot and killed J. W. Sherman in a Market-street resort in Sau Jose last October was adjudged insane by a jury in the superior court and will be sent to Agnews. After his preliminary exam ination ho became moody and silent. He was sleeping in his chair when the jury rendered its verdict. The Rees & Wirsching block, 219-236 Los Angeles street, Los Augolos, was almost totally destroyed by tire, together with the saddlery establishment of the Baden & Lewis company and the coffee uud spice house of Newmurk Brothers. The total loss is conservatively esti mated at 1160,000, well covered by in surance. A. E. Hespeler was booked at San Francisco on two charges of obtaining money under false pretenses by meins of fraudulent checks. He is also wanted iu Santa Monica oil similar charges. His father, who is said to be a termer speaker of the Canadian parliament, lias declined to come to his rescue. A bold burglary occurred at the Hew itt resideuco iu Riverside, Cal., the burglar making good his escape and taking with lnm a quantity of silver ware. Mrs. Ethel Dennis, daughter of Mr. aud Mrs. Hewitt, heard u noise, aud her husbaud, on going to investi gate, was met iu the hallway by the burglar. The burglar pointed a re volver at Deuuis aud ordered him to “gt way back aud sit dowu.” Dennis went. The burglar theu escaped through a wiudow, in his haste dropping a roll of bonds he had taken from one of the rooms. The burglar, who had only one arm, was iu his stocking feet. He made his way to where he had a horse aud buggy hitched aud drove away. The Northern Pacific Railway com pany will present to the stale of Mon tana a magnificent oil painting which is to be hung over the grand stairway of the new capitoi, says a Helena dispat oh. The picture, which will be painted by Amedee Joulliou, a San Francisco artist, will be lb by 10 feet iu size, aud will represent the scene at Gold Creek when the last spike was driven for the Northern Pacific railroad. The paint ing will contain pictures of President Grant, Mr. Villard and other notables who were present on that occasion. E. G. Carlson, night watchman of the West Seattle Grain Elevutor company, was overpowered by three masked men at 3 o'clock in the morning and tied to a chair. The robbers then drilled mo big safe in the office, placed a stick 01 dynamite, poured water in the coni stove to put out the tire, stacked s.i -.is of wheat arouud the wareroom ami s off the churge. The door ■ t..o > il was blown across the room it' r:, > was kuocked unconscious. in - «■ was wrecked, the robbers’ act oi ox tinguishiug the Are undoubtedly sav.u ; the buildlug and Carlson’s lif •. C •on was afterward fouud aud db . Many valuable books aud papers were destroyed, but the robbers failed to gain anything, as nothing had been left in the safe the night before. The daring daylight burglar who has beeu operating in the Mission, San Francisco, was arrested aud identified as Eld ward Edmiuister, alias Morgan, alias Stevens, alias Clifton, an ex-con vict, who was convicted of burglary in mututnu aim sentenced to one year s imprisonment in San Quentin. About a score of burglaries committed in the Mission district during the last three months have been traced to him. The Mission Transportation and Re finery company filed a trust deed at Los Angeles to secure a bond issue of 11,000,000. The purpose of this issue is to construct a fleet of vessels for the transportation of oil to San Francisco and the Hawaiian islands. The Union Oil company is interested in the new corporation. A large refinery is being built at Bakersfield by the transporta tion company. Contracts for three ships have been let and others will be built. The deed is signed by W. F. Botsford, president, and W. A. Carney, secretary. Jackson Williams was sentenced by Judge Cook at San Francisco to 20 years' imprisonment for assaulting and robbing Henry Carlson, a sailor, and the judge expressed his determination to give of fenders of this class the limit of the law. The local land authorities at Los An geles have decided that S. P. Rees, W. W. Jenkins and Joseph H. Wilbur have no legal claim to 5,715.55 acres of land claimed in the Palomas mining district, near Castaic, Los Angeles county, and the property will be turned over to agricultural claimants, of whom Wil liam C. Chormicle is the chief. The decision affects the entire Palomas min ing district, which lies north of New hall, and which has been the subject of bitter contest for years. Abel J. Schroff, a military prisoner on the island of Alcatraz, San Francis co, escaped from the island during the night and floated out to sea upon a plank that would hardly bear his weight. In the darkness beyond the Heads the man was picked up by two Italian fishermen. He was brought buck to the city and landed at Meiggs wharf before daylight. He gave a false name and said that while out shooting ducks his skiff had capsized. After being supplied with dry garments hs made toward the city. Judge York of the superior court at Lob Angeles handod down a decision in the divorce case of Ramona Valenzuela agaiust Arnulfo Valenzuela denying the legal separation sought by the wife on the ground of the husband’s idleness. The plaintiff since her marriage has been a wageworker, and has earned suf ficient to support herself and has laid up money for her future wants. Judge York said his sympathy went ont to a wife with an idle husband, but it alsc went out to a man who had an idle wife, but be she ever so idle, he (cannot obtain a divorce from her upon that ground. •‘In all walks of life,” continued the judge, “woman has shown her ability to cope with man. The time has ar rived when wo should look suspiciously upon her claim to support from an idle husband when she is healthy ;lud child less and more than his equal in the battle of life.” Robbers secured between 110,000 and $20,000 worth of diamonds by stealing two trunks from the baggage-room ol tho Northern Pacific station at Ulen dive, Mont., and breaking them open. The trunks were the property of C. B. Clausen, wholesale manufacturing jew eler, of Minneapolis. The robbery ii supposed to have been committed as the west-bouud train was at the depot about 4 o’clock, as at that hour the express agent is busy and absent from his office for at least 30 minutes. Tho polict arrested “ Jimmy ” McCarty, an ex prive-flghter, who had been acting sus piciously. The police of Los Angeles made a rich haul of criminals that will probably end the long series of burglaries aud high way robberies that have for some time been of almost daily occurrence. Theii names are Frank Case, William Kelly, Charles Mertle, alias Merkle, alias W. C. Gordon, Frank Color aud John Beck with, four of whom aro ex-convicts. Stolen articles were found in their pos session when arrested. As Towermau T. L. Holden of the Southern Paciflo company was in the fignal tower at First aud Franklin streets, Oakland, Cal., the other night, a stranger came bustling up the stair way. “I am the inspector," said the stranger, aud Holbrook let him in. The man piled coal into the stove until the metal turned white from the heat. Next he wanted to polish the stove, but Holden convinced him that he had bet ter wait until it oooled a little. Then the inspector announced that he would carry the stove down stairs, but Holden persuaded his queer visitor not to make the attempt. The towermau saw that he was dealing with a madman, so at the first opportunity he signaled to the weu on one of the harbor bridges. They sent for the police, aud soon afterward the bogus inspector was taken to jail. Next day he was identified as Henry C. Jones, a laborer. A commission in lunacy found that he was demented, and Judge Hall ordered that he be com mitted to the Stockton asylum. Herbert H. Matteson was arrested in Helena, Mont., charged with the em bezzlement of tUe.000 from the First National bank of Great Falls, Mont., having, it is said, used the bank’s money in heavy speculation in stocks. Arrangements will be made whereby the loss will be made up and the stand ing of the bank sustained. Master Mechanic G. W. Smith of the Santa Fe’s coast lines, Division Master Mechanic 0. F. Lapo ot the Southern California division and General Fore man O. G. Lundholm of the San Ber nardino shops have sent in their resig nations, s&ysa.ij>an Bernardino dispatch. it is saia tnat tne beads come on at tbe injunction of Superintendent of Ma chinery George R. Henderson. Lape, Smith and Lundholm have been with the Santa Fe company for ten years. After having been given up to die ot what tbe doctors supposed was con sumption, James W. Plunkett, a vet eran soldier of the regular army, coughed up the tip of a bayonet, and probably will recover his health, says a Los Angeles dispatch. It is supposed that he must have swallowed the bayo net tip with his food and that it "went the wrong way." He often used his bayonet as a can-opener, and presum ably the point broke off in the canned meat. Shock resulting from an operation tc remove from the larynx a false tooth brought about the death of Joseph Brothers of Berkeley, Cal., an old and well-known engineer. A small plate carrying one tooth became dislodged and slipped down Brothers’ throat while at dinner, sticking fast in the larynx. Dr. Thomas removed the tooth from the larynx, but the shock caused by the operation and the laceration of the throat and windpipe resulted in the death of Brothers. IN THE PHILIPPINES. The war department is advised of the surrender of 365 insurgents to Brigdier General James F. Wade at Cebu, Jan. 14. On Jan. 15 they took the oath at Tagbilaran, Bohol. The forces of Colonel Marisigan sur rendered recently to General Bell, whe is conducting the campaign against thi insurgents in Batangas province The Filipinos who surrendered included three colonels, one major, five captain' and 13 lieutenants. They gave up 31( rifles and one cannon. All the insur gents who surrendered did so uncondi tionally. General Bell ordered the men released. General Bell says the sur render pacifies for the time being all the eastern part of Batangas. A recent Manila dispatch says that s report has boon received that a dugout canoe, in which 11 men of Company 1 of the Second infantry were traveling, is missing and probably lost. It is be lieved the men either perished or were captured. An important capture was made in Laguna province, Luzon, when eight men of the Eighth infantry captured a woman insurgent named Aqueda Kaha bagen. She recently commanded an in surgent force of 800 men, 300 of whom carried rifles, while 500 were armed with bolos. For six years past she has been leading insurgent bauds against Spaniards and Americans. LODGE DIRECTORY.
