Vail of Los Angeles, for the sam of 913,000, bis interest m the War ner ranch, in ,Sa» Diego connty. Certain hotel-keepers of Los Angeles are charged with practicing methods of extortion. The various commercial bodies of tiie city will investigate the charges and take action in the matter. Fire destroyed the bigfoed warehouse ef Cheeda & Co., San Itafael, and, like the six others of recent occurrence, was of incendiary origin. The loss is esti mated at 913,000, covered by $4,000 in surance. The entire Fair estate of 917,871,000.00 now goes absolutely to the three child ren of the late James G. Fair. The trust clause in the will having been declared invalid in a tlual decisiou by the su preme court of California, Charles L. fkir, Mrs. Theresa Fair Oelrichs and Mrs. Virginia Fair Vanderbilt are to as sume absolute possession of the prop erty, to do with it as they please. The mewing of a pet cat on the banks of a stream disclosed to the searchers the resting-piace of the body of Baby Fuxyhowia, a two-year-old Japanese child, which disappeared from its fath er's home near Alviso, Cal. It was late at night when the cries of the cat were first noticed, uud next morning a search of the bed of Coyote creek, which is deep at that point, disclosed the body ol the little one. Judge Harrington made an order dis missing the indictments against the 11 defendants in jail on a charge of impli cation in the Lookout lynching, and they are now released from custody. The reason given by the court for dis missing the indictments was that the defendants were not broaght to trial within 00 days after the filing of the in dictments. Edward F. Fisher, 28 years old, a line man employed by the Pasadena Electric Light company, was literally roasted to death while working on a line extension in North Pasadena, Cal. The dead wire on which he was resting gave way and he fell, striking upon the live wire bo neath, and being caught and held in this positiou by the tool-belt which he wore. Fire llamod from his hands and a curling smoke arose as the wires burned through the flesh. His com panions finally succeeded in releasing him, but he died soon after he had been lowered to the street. Because Dr. J. J. Willingham refused to marry her iu September, 12*>U, iliss Kmma S. Richards bus began suit for breach of promise, and Mrs. S. M. Tigbe, a white-haired woman of 00 years cr more, is made co-defendant, ■ays a Los Angeles dispatch. Miss Richards wants damages iu the sum of $20,000. The plaintiff alleges that de fendant’s failure to carry out his prom ise was because ho was infatuated with his co-defendant, Mrs. M. Tighe, and through her influence and persuasion he kept postponing the marriage. Miss Richards is acting us her own lawyer in the case. Water has been turned into the Mal ones mine at Robinsons Ferry, Calaveras county, Cul., which means thut the labor of six years has been completed, and that one of the most gigantio pieces of mining work in California, on which nearly $1,000,000 has been expended, is now an assured success, as 120 stamps will soon be dropping and another 120 are in course of construction. It is said that 600 men will be at work iu the miue within the year. Three boats, wbicb are said to be of the lightest draft in the world, are now being constructed to overcomo the in convenience experienced every summer on the Yukon river from shallow water, says a Seatth dispatch. The Merchants' Transportation company is building two of the boats at Lake La Barge. Their length will be 100 feet, with 20 feet beam and a capacity of 50 tons. The Northern Commercial company is build ing the third at Portland. She will be 110 feet long by 22 feet wide. Dialled with supplies, the regular freight and crews, these boats will not require more than 20 inches of water to permit of easy navigation. William F. McAllister, a member of the Salvation Army of Sail Francisco, has written to Sheriff I. W. Uilstrap of Macon, Mo., informing him that he committed a burglary in Macon county in 1897, and now desires to go to Macon and plead guilty and take his peni tentiary sentence if the authorities there want nun. “If you refuse to prosecute me,” he says, "will you please be so kind as to send me the name and address of the party whose store I burglarized, so that I may make restitution to him?” MoAllister was converted last December. He served as a volunteer in Company K, Thirtieth Velanteer infantry, belh in Cuba .and In the rniuppiaes. To combine a funeral and a wedding eeremony by marrying a aecond wife at the side of the coffin of the first was the intention of Alexander M. (Jarrell of 74 Willow avenue, San Francisco. While his wife lay dead in the parlor at home (Jarrell prooured a license permitting him, as a widower, to marry Miss Alice A. Starrett, late of Los Angeles. The bride, however, showed some reluc tance, and they came to the conclusion that it would be better to postpone the ceremony. The intended marriage was in accordance with the wish of Mrs. Carrell, who had exacted a promise from her husband that he should marry Miss Starrett, who had nursed her faith fully during the last weeks of her Illness. Oarrell at one time had a sad Mery shop in Pale Alto. The Maritime World is the name of a high-class monthly publication to make its appearance in San Francisco shortly. John O’Tool of the miners’ union of Tonopah, Nev., says that in justice to the uninformed he desires to warn all laboring men to stay away from there until local conditions improve. Daniel McCarty, who had for several years travelod for the Adams Booth company, wholesale grocers, of Sacra mento, committed suicide by shooting himself in the head, in a back room of the Commercial saloon at Sacramento. The loss of his position with the Adams Booth compauy is said to be the cause of the suicide. The Everett (Wash.) trades council, in a circular letter, advises mechanics to keep away from Puget sound cities unless they come with money. The letter says that advertising matter sent out is "false and misleading in charac ter,” and would flood the Puget sound districts with idle men if not counter acted. Judge Magee of Minneapolis has nlea a decision finding the plan and manage ment of the Tontine Savings associa tion fraudulent, forfeiting its charter and appointing a receiver, says a dis patch to the Spokane Evening Chronicle. The Tontine has branches in Spokane, Portland, Tacoma, Seattle, Butte, Oak land, Victoria, Vancouver and many other western cities. Its scheme is to collect money from subscriber* in weekly payments, promising them double their money as fast as their policies become the oldest outstanding matured. The South African Variety company, which has a lottery scheme attached to its vaudeville performance, has been reapiDg a golden harvest in some of the towns of Santa Clara county, Cal. At Santa Clara a free vaudeville perform ance filled Widuey's hail, aud then Manager Cramwell sold the people cheap jewelry and bad cigars at exorbitant prices. A bad 5-cent cigar would bring $5, and many people paid $10 for a val ueless piece of paper. Altogether $500 was taken out of the old mission town. Los Gatos citizens, valuing their chances in the lottery at more than they were worth, recently parted with $1,500, and Gilroy contributed $600 to the actors. Gus Spear, the 19-year-old sou of the late M. A. Spear, and nephew of Joseph Spear, surveyor of the port of San Fran cisco, committed suicide at his mother's home, 1729 Broadway, Sau Francisco, presumably because his relatives were opposed to his marriage while he was so young to Nellie Gallagher, soaroely 18, who lives a few blocks from the Spear residence. He was found dead in his bed with the single gas jet in his bedroom turned on full force.

AEVADE The wild man who for the last four years has been terrorising the people from ('armel to Gorda, on the coast line of Monterey connty, was captured, after a straggle, by several men who went in pursuit of him, and was taken to the county jail at Salinas. In a pocket of his ragged overalls was a passbook of the German Savings and Loan society of San Francisco in the name of Julius Fuyal, with a balance due Aug. 6, 1896, the date of the last deposit, of $483.88. The man eats ravenously, tearing his food like a wild beast. He says he worked for Louis Frank of Redwood City. He is about 87 years of age, and is of Swiss or Slavonian descent. The Central Irrigation district, organ ized under the Wright law in Colusa and Glenn counties, Cal., in 1887, has been declared illegal, and all its bonds, amounting to $760,000, of which $574, 000 have been sold, are declared void. This means that the construction of 61 miles of canal which was built immedi. ately after the formation of the district in 1887, and was about two-thirds of the entire proposed main canal, was in vain. Frank Johnson, a desert prospector, was brought to San Bernardino in irons a raving maniac, as the result of find ing the corpse of a man who had per ished from thirst. Johnson left Palm Springs for the purpose of prospecting. Ue found a man’s clothes scattered about and from numerous holes dug in the sand realized that some miner had gone delirious. He set out to look for the unfortunate, and a few hours later found him dead, bis mouth filled with sand, which he had attempted to drink. The sight unbalanced his mind. He imagines that the spirit of the corpse is seeking to throttle him. Mrs. M. E. King of San Bernardino was attackad by an enormous Shanghai rooster and so badly injured that her life is in danger. She attempted to drive the fowl from a rosebush, when it turned upon her and with the force of its wings threw her to the ground. It then made a frantic effort to thrust its beak into her eyes. A neighbor came to her aid, but the ferocious fowl routed both women, not, however, until it had dug its talons and beak into Mrs. King’s hands and face. The wounds have proved to be more than superficial injuries, for her arms began to swell and are now double their usual size. The swelling has extended to her face and affects her entire left side, and blood-poisoning is feared. The supremo court of California de cided an interesting point of law in connection with the administration of the estate of one of the victims of the wreck of the Rio de Janeiro, whose mother also met her death in the same marine disaster. The qnestion at issue was whether the public administrator was entitled to letters of administration on the estate of Naomi Wakefield, or whether Rnth Miller, a nominee of the brothers of the deceased, was entitled to the letters. The court fouud as facts that Naomi Wakefield died first aud so her mother, Sarah W. Wakefield, though she perished in the same disas ter, was her daughter’s sole heir-at-law, as the danghter died intestate. Both mother and daughter left estates in the county of Alameda, Cal. The order of the lower oourt granting letters to the public administrator is affirmed.

Eastern Comment Regarding Oar Member of Congress. From tho Rochester, H. Y., Posi-Exprtss. ' The Senate has passed the Irrigation bill. What will become oi the measure in the House is an open question. It ia quite evident that Speaker Henderson ia not particularly favorable to the irrigation policy, notwithstanding the fact that both political parties committed themselves to it in their last national platforms. There is, however, a decided determination upon the part of western and northwestern men to force the House to take action, and no one has been more industrious towards this end than Representative Francis G. <}. Newlands of Nevada. Id point of population Nevada is the smallest State in the Union, but there are few States represented iD the lower House of Congress by a more able, painstaking and conscientious man than Mr. New lands. It has not always been the largest States that have had the ablest represent ative in Washington. For many years the little State of Maine ranked them all, when Reed, Dingley, BoutelJe and Milli ken filled the four seats assigned to Maine in the lower House. Delaware has sent men like Bayard, Saulsburyand Gray to the Senate in the past. Mr. Newlands undoubtedly has a per sonal interest in securing irrigation legis lation, for no State in the Union will more greatly benefit from the introduction of a national policy of water storage and dis tribution than Nevada. No member rep resenting the arid and semi-arid region has had such a long period of continued service as the Nevada member. Nor is there any one who has studied the sub ject in all its bearings in every country of the old world which has attempted irri gation to the extent that Mr. Newlands has carried his investigation. Should the House finally adopt the Senate bill or any similar measure, suc cess will be very largely due to the efforts of the Western men, who formed a com mittee early in the session and selected Mr. Newlands for secretary. This com mittee succeeded in bringing together the various opposing elements and they have neglected no opportunity to impress their views upon their colleagues. Sowell have they carried on their propaganda that there is to-day a clear majority in the House, favorable to the policy of irriga tion, if only the Speaker will permit the question to come up for consideration. STATE NEWS ITEMS. The Austin Reveille begins to doubt that the Nevada Central railroad will be extended to Tonopab from Ledlie. The Smith Bros, of Marysville, Cali fornia, are said to be the parties who will soon start another paper at Tonopab. A lodge of Knights of Pythias is to be organized at Tonopah, April 9, by Grand Chancellor Macpherson of Wadsworth. Judge M. S. Bonnifield of Winnemucca is said to be a candidate for the office of Supreme Judge before the Fusion con vention. The new mining camp of Tonopah is being widely advertised by the Southern Pacific Company. Large posters adorn the fences throughout San Francisco. On March 6th there was sent from St. Louis, Mo., a train of twelve refrigerator cars loaded with 2,000,000 eggs for the San Francisco market. Such shipments as these should set Nevada farmers thinking, says the Enterprise. H. Cohen, business manager of the Virginia Enterprise when those celebrat ed writers: Charley Goodwin, R. M. Daggett, Dan De Quille and Alf. Doten were on the editorial staff, will in the near future take up his residence at Tono pah. Enterprise: By the change in the line of the Central Pacific road, Washoe county, Nevada, will lose fifteen miles of railroad, the assessed value of which is fifteen thousand dollars per mile. This much of the new road will be in Storey county. Andrew Carnegie baa offered to give $15,000 to the city of Reno for the erec tion of a free public library building, if the city will agree to furnish $1,500 annu ally for its support. The matter is being considered. On March 15 Carnegie grant ed forty applications for library funds, Albany, N. Y., coming in for a gift of $175-, 000. L. A.

How handy the hundreds of horses killed on the range of late years would come in at present. Oarson Mows. Nevadans are hoping that the reported sale of the Tonopah mines to a New York syndicate is true. There exists a general opinion, whether well founded or not, that the Philadelphia company is not en ergetic enough for such a world-beater as Tonopah is believed to be. KlKO independent. The Supreme Court has again sat upon the Office Specialty Company in itaefforts to get pay for the metal boxes furnished Washoe county through the connivance of its Commissioners. This is the same company that buncoed Elko county sev eral years ago. Lyon County Timet. The Southern Pacific Company has is sued a 100,000 edition of a little booklet entitled “ California for $25.” The book let sets forth the true merits of California as a place for homeseekers, and will no doubt bring much business to the com pany in the way of transportation. It will be distributed in the East and abroad. Why not give Nevada a boost of this kind? cuaon Mew*. Horse buyers for the English army are in Carson picking up a number of ani mals. They are doing likewise through out the State. We Nevadans are run ning over with sympathy for the Boers, and curses for the English, but we are willing to sell the latter all the horses or anything else they may need in the "war of oppression." If the price offered is right. Elko Independent. The postal clerks on the eastbound flyer must have been asleep this morning when they passed Elko. They neither left nor took mail from here. More extra clerks should be put on or else the De partment should furnish those now on duty with medicme to keep them awake. A liberal supply of good snake medicine might do the work. Virginia Report. A. V. Turner, a heavy shareholder in Tonopah mining company stock, is quoted by the Reno Journal as saying that the company will not begin extensive devel opment work until May. He stated that a 12-foot vein of $600 ore is developed in the Broughpr shaft at a depth of 250 feet. With such a showing the query naturally suggests it-elf *» hy the company does not proceed to extract it? The im pression is gaining ground that Tonopah promoters are peddling considerable hot air. Carton Neva. The State University is in the throe* again. It appears that the editor* of the Student Record, the college paper, pub* lisbed articles thst did not have the effect ol tickling the President of the University. The matter culminated to-day in the sus pension of Mr. Springmeyer of Carson Valley, editor in chief of the publication. He had been selected to take part in the debate with Hastings Law College, but will not now do so. Very few copies of the Record reached this city, and so it is presumed the censor got in his work. iDvery school has its troubles, but for ft small, one-horse institution the Univer sity of Nevada is before the public with ft grievance more than its legal proportion of the time. If the Regents cannot ran the institution or secure the services of some one who can, they had better close up the shop. The immense blast set off at Hafed, near Clarks, in Washoe county, Satur day afternoon by the railroad contractors, was a great success. A number of curious people gathered to see the artificial erup tion and they saw a startling sight. It is said that fragments of rock the size of a flat car were thrown 1,500 feet. The blast was set off by electricity and the cost of the blast was $10,000, but it did its work well. BANK OF NEVADA. Virginia Street, Reno, Nevada.
