Policeman Killed by Eootpada— Cap ture of Escaped Convicts. The coldest weather of the winter is reported from Los Angeles, the tempera ture being as low as 32 degrees. Edna Dareh, the little Los Angoles linger whom Mmo. Calve took east in December, has returned to her home in Los Angeles, as the eastern climate was too severe for her. News was received at San Bt-rnar lino, Cal., of a very rich strike of cop per and gold south of Klinefelter, 12 miles from Needles. The ore runs 35 per cent pure copper and $12 gold to the ton. James A. Kidward, who has been chief of police of San Jose for eight years, has sent in his resignation, giv ing as his reason that his "private in terests will require the greater portion Uon of his time.” Two young women, Miss Fannie Ungermau aud Mrs. OUie Gauut. died M the home of Mrs. Gaunt in McMinn* fillc, Or., us the result of poisoning by trsenic, administered by their own bands. Miss Ungermau telephoned to a doctor that Mrs. Gauut was sick. When the doctor came they admitted having taken poison. Restoratives were administered, but it was too late, aud the women died within three hours of each other. Disappointments in life and despondency are said to be the cause of the women’s taking their lives. Mrs. Gauut hail been separated from her husband ior soveral mouths. Eleven convicts who escaped from McNeil’s Island penitentiary, says a Tacoma dispatch, have all been captured Without bloodshed and are now confined in two small dungeons, six by eight feet, five men in each. One man, Car roll, is too sick to be placed in a dun geon. Two of the convicts, Moriarty and Williams, will lose a credit of 20 months and two year* aud two mouth* respectitely. The body of Giacomo Basso, in prison for the murder of Joe Baggio, was found suspended from a rope made of his clothing in the county jail at Modesto, Cab Basso, who, like Boggio, was an Italian, was 68 years old, and had con siderable property in Monterey county, where lie lived most of the time. Miss Kate C. Cleglioru, 21 years of age, employed at the East l»s Angeles telephone station, was drowned in the lake at East Side park. Near the place where Mis* Cleglioru entered the water her bicycle was found by the park po lice, who had been attracted to the spot by her screams. Half an hour later the body was discovered in six feet of water and not more than 30 feet from the shore. The coroner’s jury returned a verdict of suicide. On her face, how ever, were two brui-es, which l>ore every appearance of having been caused by blows. Mrs. Katherine K. Davis of Oakland, 0*1., filed a petition to be permitted to draw $25 monthly from the estate of Fanny Melville, who died nt Grand Rapids, Mich., for the bupport of her miuor children, Ruth K. aud Carroll Davis, who are residuary heirs of the estate. In her will Mrs. Melville made the following provision: “If my favor ite, true aud affectionate dogs, Bu i aud Jennie, survive me, 1 give the same, or the survivor of them, to my sister, Mary Louise Griffith, aud charge my estate with the payment to her of $3 a week for their care uud custody as long as they, or either of them, shall live.” While the six children of Robert Shield were gathered around a stove, says a New Whatcom (Wash.) dispatch, a water tank that hud frozen as the re sult of a blizzard, which began during the night, exploded, injuring all six. Frank, 13 years old, was so seriously in jured that he may die. Pearl, ago 1 7, was badly cut by tlyiug pieces of iron. The room was completely wracked. Governor McRride of Washington has issued a proclamation opposing the railroad merger uuder the name of the Northern Securities compauy. lie de clares the community of interest iu the operation of railroads iB dangerous be cause of the insecurity of individuals. Such community of interost, he says, stifles competition, which is the only protection against railroads iu the state of Washington. The governor recom mends a bi-partisan commission of three members who will protect the people. The Alaska, Copper River and Yukon Railway company has been incorpo rated under the laws of Washington to build a railroad from Prince William’s sound in Alaska through the Copper sod Tauaua river country to a point on the Yukon river near Eagle. The com pany proposes in addition to operate a steamship line from Seattle to Prince William’s sound; to bnild and ihaintain a smelter and refineries iu Alaska and to carry on general mining transactions. The corporation is capitalized at |25, WkUMQ. all of which bsw boon subscribed by eastern ana foreign upeu. u, estimated cost of the railway is placed at (10,000,000. The incorporators are K. D. Bannister, Alfred B. lies and T. Lk Parker. Frank Furtado, 18 years old, a keeeper at Piedmont Springs park, Oakland, Cal., went among the elk for the pur pose of feeding them, when he was sud denly attacked by a maddened bull, which impaled the boy on its horns, and after carrying him in this way around the paddock, pitched him over a ten-foot fence. In a few minntes he died in the arms of his brother, Joseph Furtado, who had gone to rescue the boy from the maddened brute. It is thought that the elk was suffering from fever, as about this season of the year the antlers drop. Along the northern part of San Joaqnln oounty and Sacramento county, Cal., there will be numerous vineyards planted this season. It is intended to plant only resistant vines, which will not be affected by pests. Mountain lions, says a Han Jose ais disputch, daring the cold weather hare been committing many depredations among domestic stock, especially on tho sheep ranges around Mount Hamil ton. A large number of the hungry beasts have been slain, but many still remain. Andrew Kettman of Ever green, whose father owns a sheep ranch near Monnt Hamilton, killed one that measured 8 feet from tip to tip and weighed 100 pounds. The beast was on the trail of a colt and about to spring on his prey when shot. In an encounter with three highway men who were endeavoring to rob a citizen at Eighteenth and Valencia streets, San Francisco, Police Officer E. 0. Robinson was shot in tho abdo men, and he died from the wound next day. One of the robbers, William A. Henderson, was wounded and taken to tho Uity and Oounty hospital. The other two. known as “Kid’’ Goucher and “Brownie,” escaped. Goncher is said to be a son of ex-Senator Goucher of Fresno. The young son and daughter of Cleve Smith—Richard, aged 11, and Goorgi ana, aged 14 —with Joseph Calvin, a hired man, wore drowned while skating near Alki, says a Sprague (Wash.) dis patch. The three not returning home in the evening, Mr. Smith made a search next morning and found their caps frozen to the ice. The bodies were afterward recovered. Edward Fall and Jack Smith, old resi dents of El Dorado county, Cal., en gaged in a fight with deadly weapons, Smith using a revolver and Hall a pump-gnu, with the result that both men are dangerously wounded and may die. The shooting occurred at Fort Jim, one of the old mining districts in the county, juirtly over a mining quarrel of long standing and jiartly bocause Smith accused Fall of having stolen a hog. The recent storm did damage on the water front at Seattle amounting to about |4O,000. Accidents were numer ous, including the loss of a large steam er, the E. D. Smith. A section of wharf in old Taoomu was washed from it* piling and floated out to sea. On the wharf stands a small grocery store owned by a man named Johnson. The proprietor and two customers were in the store at the time the dock flouted away, taking the building with it. For several boars the grocerymau and hit customers were at the mercy of the waves, but the dock did not overturn and finally was picked up by a tug and safely moored. Oliver Lippincott of Los Angeles in his automobile, Toledo, climbed “Knob Hill,” 10 per cent grade, between Flag staff (A. T.) and the Grand Canyon in six inches of snow. Tho test was mode before a committee of the new Automo bile Transportation company, and the feat is considered one of the most diffi cult ever attempted. The new com pany expects to have 15 passenger auto mobiles running to the Grand Canyon by May 1. W. A. Lewis, a pioneer attorney oi Spokane, was convicted in the superior court in that city of embezzling #1,600 of his client. Lewis and his family are prominent in society. When the dis covery of his embezzlement was made he fled to Seattlo and remained there in hiding for several months. He was discovered, however, and taken back tc Spokane, and on being released on a bond fled to Denver. He was oaught there and returned to Spokane for trial. John H. Wood, 24 years of age, was sontenced by Judge Carroll Cook at San Francisco to imprisonment at Folsom for the remainder of his life for the orime of highway robbery. The con victed man served in the Philippine campaign, but was convicted of a mili tary offense and dishonorably dis charged from the service. Frank Nel son pleaded guilty before Judge Dunne to the charge of highway robbery and was sentenoed to 27 years in San Quen tin. Edward Davis, Nelson’s aocom plice, pleaded not guilty, and was sent to Folsom for 33 years. Joseph Pedro, a peaceful, law-abiding young man, who formerly lived at Yountville, Napa county, Cal., was shot aud killed by Policeman J. A. Crack bon, in the Mission, San Francisco. Crackbon, who was in plain clothes, thought Pedro was acting suspiciously in the early morning and called upon him to halt, telling him at the same that he was an officer. Pedro, how ever, evidently thought the policeman was a footpad and ran, when Crackbou fired and the ballet passed through Pedro’s stomach. At the inquest on the body _of_ Hedro tko coroner's jury exonerated uracaoon. While Mr. and Mrs. Dillon of Cali fornia were on the train on their honey moon tnp to Lewiston, Ida., says a Spokane dispatch, Mr. Dillon was at tacked apparently by smallpox. He was removed from the oar at Oakesdale and taken to the pesthouse. His young bride refused to leave her sick husband and accompanied him in the pest wagon. After a few days in the pesthouse the mild attack of smallpox began to disap pear, but the couple remained in quar tine. When about to gain their release the bride was attacked by a mild form of the disease, and the husband is now nursing his faithful companion. Frank Said was accidentally shot by his companion, Albert Ralston, while hunting deer near Forest Hill, says an Auburn (Cal.) dispatch. Ralston heard a noise in the brush, and, mistaking Said’s gray hat for a deer, fired his rifle, killing him instantly. At the inquest Ralston was exonerated, the two having been close friends. Said saw service as a surgeon In the Philippines and flad an honorable discharge. His home was in Delaware, O., where his body was shipped. Mrs. Isabelle Evans, wife of Dr. Paul W. Evans, a wealthy dentist of Wash ington, left a curt note for her husband, telling him she had decided to go on the stage, and has joined the “Floro dora” company at New York.
