Chine ft* Robbed Near Seattle—II»*»»glng of Wade and Dalton —Man Killed at San Krbnclaco While Committing an A»ftault on a Woman. Chief of Police Wittman of San Fran tisco has issued an order that the ordin ance prohibiting expectorating on the public sidewalks must be strictly en forced. It is reported from Portland that “Brownie." one of the thugs concerned m the murder of Policeman Robinson it San Francisco, is under arrest iu the former city. He is suffering from two bullet wounds received in the fight with the policeman Burglars sawed a seotion from one of the iron doors guarding tho front en trance to Chong Lee’s store at 828 Du pont street, San Francisco, inserted a hook and dragged from the store $.500 worth of silks and other goods, with which they made their escape. J. H. McFarlan, aged 60 years, a resi dent of Old Town, San Diego, attempted suicide by taking laudanum, but took too much and it nauseated him before it took effect in his blood. A charge of insanity will be brought against him by the county physician. While intoxicated, A. Fraaer, a sec tion hand on the Northern Pacific, says a Seattle dispatch, became wedged in a cattle guard near Leary and met with a terrible death. The oow-catchcr passed over him, but a bolt near one of the iniall wheels canght his coat and dragged him seven miles over the snow which covered the ties. Tho arms and legs were torn off, and were subse quently discovered by a track-walker. Norman F. Lambert, a prisoner on the receiving ship Independence await ing trial on a charge of desertion from a ship on the Asiatic station, jumped over board and struck out for tho shore, says a Vallejo (Cal.) dispatch. AH trace of tho fugitive was lost, he having escaped in tho darkness or sunk. Lambert is the man who, when on trial for murder in Indiana, could prove his innocence only by establishing the fact that he was serving on a warship at the time the murder was committed. In proving this ho was also proven to be a deserter. Homesickness and a desire to see his wife and children caused him to desert. He was within a few miles of his home wiieu arrested for murder. Two prisoners made a desperate at tempt to break jail at Redlands, Cal., after having boen arrested on suspicion of being implicated in a burglary at Riverside. During the night they filed through several bars, but lost their fils before completing the job. They then set fire to the building, expecting to burn a hole large enough through which to escape. Tho fire got beyond their control, and when the officers ent< red tho cell the prisoners were found uucon ecions, having been suffocated by the smoke. They regained consciousness when carried into tho street and endeav ored to make off during the confusion. They were taken to the county jail at San Bernardino. The fire was extin guished before much damage was done. Frederick II. Roller, 23 years old, employed as an engraver by Shrove & Co., San Francisco, was shot and kiiled by Thomas Flaherty, a bartender at 30 Golden Gate avenue, iu William Urn land’s grocery store and saloon at 413 Franklin street. Flaherty had a pittol iu his bund when he went into Urn land's saloon uud demanded a put dog belonging to a woman named Louise Alverez. Roller seized the hand in which the infuriated man held tho pistol, and as he did so Flaherty turned the wcajKiu on him and sent u bullet through Roller's heart. He was arrested and churged with the crime. Harry M. Prouso, 24 yoars of uge, who served about three years as a member of Troop A, Eleventh cavalry, aud was discharged last March as a corporal, tried to bill himself through front Sau Francisco to Chicago as a box of house hold goods. The suspicions of a truck man were aroused, however, the police were informed, and Prouse was carted to the central police station instead of the railway freight sheds. At the sta tion he was hanled oat of the box, but the police had no record against him. In the box Prouse was supplied with provisions, water aud blankets, aud he had arranged that a friend in Chicago should be in waiting to receive the “household goods." Owing to his good army record, the police will secure him transportation to Chicago at a low rate. Thomas Normile, a laborer, and the father of a family of eight childrou, the eldest of whom is bat 13 years of age, was shot aud instantly killed on the uorth side of Bernal Heights, San Fran cisco, by Gustav Allsted, a carpenter. The murder was caused by Allsted’s finding Normile on the hillside in the company of his wife. After being shot Normile fell across Allstod’s wife, drenching her with his blood. The murder was the outcome of au all-day carousal at the home of liarry Vassey, who lives ou beruti Heights. Allsted. on me ground oi intemperance, naa secured a divorce from his wife on the day of the shooting. The charge of murder against Allsted was dismissed by Jndge Caban iss, as it was proved that Normile was assaulting the woman when Allsted shot him. After being confined in the county jail for four years and seven months, more than three years of .which he was under sentence of death, Joseph Shafer, the mulatto who killed a colored man named John Hawkins in Bntte, Mont., in 1897 is once more a free man. Judge McClernand dismissed ,the casp against Shafer, as all the witnesses are dead or left that part of the country. Shafer was twioe sentenced to be hanged, and once he was within one day of the date set fer his hanging. Dr. MoKensie of Kern City, CaL, who was said by his wife to be in Los Angeles, was discovered crouching in a closet of his home by Health Officer Williams and Dr. Booth. When he was assisted to his feet and taken into the light it was seen that he was goffer ing from varioloid. The neighbors are much incensed at his conduct, and fear that visitors to hig house who were ig norant that the physician was at home may spread the disease. The McKenzie house is now quarantined. •« Miss Florence Smith of San Francisco, possessing $19,000 in her own right, and daughter of Ferdinand Smith, the Mont gomery-street broker, has been sued for $50,000. Mrs. Anna M. Smith, residing at 6 Avery street, an aggrieved and de ferted wife, is the plaiutiiL and Charles A. Smith, of the firm of McNab & Smith, who, it is charged, has fallen a willing victim to the charms of the heiress, is the cause of the suit. Mrs. Lovell White of San Francisco followed up her withdrawal as nominee for the presidency of the State Federa tion of Women’s Clubs—which, how ever, she later withdrew—by resigning the presidency of the California club. She said she could serve no longer be cause a majority of the club voted for the admission of colored delegates to the National Federation, and spoke of those who opposed her views as ‘‘dream ers, theorists and fanatics.” The grand jury at San Francisco filed indictments in Superior Judge Carroll Cook’s court against Prank Morrissey and Martin P’lynn, tho two men whom Mrs. Rosa Kiibourn of Santa Rosa accused of having robbed and assaulted her on the night of Dec. 15 last in the Mission district. The men had previ ously been summarily discharged by Judge Morgan after what is said to have beeu a farcical hearing. Robber* entered the butcher shop of Quust <fc Co., at Rocklin, Cal., by a rear window aud removed a 700-pound safe through the opening into the street. One man was left to guard it, while others it is supposed went for a convey ance to haul it away. William Ertle, formerly town marshal, happened along during their absence and the robber on guard took a shot at him. Ertle pulled his gun and returned the lire, and a lively fusillade followed. The bullets flew wide of their mark, aud tho robber turued and ran, escaping in the dark uess. The safe contained a largo sum of money. Thomas Atwood, an orange grower of Colton, was horribly burned by the explosion of a can of oil while engaged in firing a smudge to protect his orchard from the frost. He was pouring some oil from a can on a pot that had failed to burn well, when suddenly a sheet of flame shot from tho pot and ignited the oil in tho can, which exploded, saturat ing him with the bnruing fluid. His body from the waist down was literally cooked. Physician say that his recovery is doubtful At a meeting of the Farmers’ Club at San Jose it was reported by L. F. Gra ham and others that, after experiments with thousands of trees, they were satisfied that carbon bisulphide was a positive remedy for the peach root borer. A trench is dng about the tree aud from one to two ounces of carbon bisulphide placed arouud the trunk of the tree aud covered with dirt, the fumes penetrating tho boring in the tree aud killing the insects. Superior Judge Grifllu, at Seattle, decided the recently passed ten-hour law, calculated to limit the hours of employment in stores aud factories, to be unconstitutional The defendant, a local dry-goods store, demurred to the complaint on the grouud that the statute was class legislation, and that it de prived a person of his property without due process of law, it being contended that the right to enter into contract was itself property. The State gave notice of immediate appeal to tho su preme court. Jack Wado aud B. H. Dalton were hanged at Portland for the murder of James Morrow, on the morning of Noy. 21 last, while on his way home from a visit to the girl he was soon to marry, Miss Lilah Iilidge. Wade aud Dalton said good-by and dropped throng h the traps. Before the hanging Dalton made a long religions address, while Wade made only a few remarks. Both were game to the end. Ten Chinese gardeners, about 10 o’clock in the evening, were sitting around the fire in their house, a rude shelter near their gardens in the vicinity of Van Asselt, six miles sonth of Seattle, when the door suddenly opened and in rushed six or seven men, all armed. The Chinese were securely tied with ropes to near-by objects and the thieves proceeded to “go through them.” The thieves managed to get about |t!0 in nash. together with a watch. The Chi uese were iouna m tne morning uea to the walls of the house. Deputy County Clerk Plimpton re ceived at 3eattle a letter from Frank E. Conklin, dated at San Francisco, in whioh he requests the superior court to grant him a divorce from Mrs. M. C. Conklin, about whom he says uncompli mentary things. The applicant en closed a postage stamp, evidently ex pecting that the decree would be sent by return mail. He states in his letter that if the divorce is promptly issued he will remit any fee which the court may claim as a reward for its services. Deputy County Auditor Rogers of Tacoma eloped to Portland with Jessie M. Keith, aged 21, a stenographer in the county auditor's office. Mrs. Rogers says her husband has been hypnotized by the Keith girl, while the relatives and friends of the latter dclare with even more vehemence that Rogers exer cised a hypnotic influence over her. Rogers claims not to be married, while Mrs. Rogers declares they were mar ried at Joplin, Mo., in 1886. Rogers sold all his property and left his wife penniless. Miss Keith refuses to return to her parents and says she will remain in Portland. Size of the Bl| Tree* Illustrated. The Southern Pacific has issued a series of pictures illustrating the im mense trees of California, says a Chi cago dispatch. In one of the pictures the Grizzly Giant, one of the famous trees of the Sierra Nevada, is compared with the Masonic temple. The big tree is represented as growing in the middle of State street in front of the temple, and it towers above that gigantic feat of architecture, the tree being 400 feet high, as against 302 of the temple. The tree's lowest branoh is given as opposite windows of the twelfth story of the building. It is 110 feet in circumfer ence, and in the picture occupies the whole of the street, and, like a speck in a desert, is a hole in the center of the tree through which an electric car ii passing. A second picture shows the tree as the background for 12 mounted cavalrymen. LODGE DIRECTORY. Diamond Rebekab Lodge No. 8, Meets Second and Fourth Monday even ings of each month at 7.
