A corporation to be known as the Southern California Power Company, has been organized at San Bernardino, A Cal., with a capital stock of $1,000, 000. The principal stockholders are Henry Fishtr, of Pitt-burg, Pa., and H. H. Sinclair, president and manager of the Redlands Electric Light and Power Company, of San Bernardino. The present place of business of the corporation is Redlands. The purpose of the company is to develop power I from the Santa Ana river by taking the river out at the junction of Bear Creek and Santa Ana river, carrying it in a cement ditch and tunnels about four miles, thus securing a fall of 1,000 to 1,100 feet and then running the water a again into the stream. The power f will be transmitted by pole line fifty v seven miles to Los Angeles, there to s supplant steam power now used to de r velop electricity for hlighting and rail r road companies. It will be the longest e lin uii-d the highest voltage, 30,000 e volts, in use in the wiorld. 'The line o will run through San Bernardino, On tario and Pasadena, and will be able to supply all- power needed in these towns. Work will be begun in the Santa Ana I d canon, as soon as the surveys are com >f pleted, which will be about April 1. It d is proposed to deliver power in Los An f geles by January 1, 1898. P 1- ----i~p I The Next Attorney General. A New York Herald special from s' Canton, Ohio, says: =r President-elect McKinley has ceased to drift in h;s search for the New Yotk member of his cbinet. He has definitely decided upon Colonel John a- J. MIcCook for attorney general. Th. se appointment was agreed upon at a con r- ference between the Major and Mr. w Hanna. n The purpose was not to have it n- known till a day or two before the in n- augu ation. n It lbas been known that Colonel Mc u- Cook would accept if a position in the n- cabinet were offered him. ka The sequel to Colonel McCook's ap pr- point is likely to be that Senator Platt's recommendation for collector of the port and other Federal offices will be followed, so that the basis for har in mony will not 1.o destroyed. The Ite choice of Col. McCook is to be taken n- as a personal one on the part of the A. president-elect. He has waited for the ng conflicting interests in New York to :cr get together and they have failed. Now r a he determines to act for himself, SNebra·kl:'s Deflelt. he A statement of the financial condi nd tion of the State treasury of Nebraska he shows that ex-State Treasurer J. 8. en Bartley (Republican) has a deficeit star in- ing him in the face of over $500,000. or- Coupled with this is a little item of t a, $27.000, which oxState Auditor Eugene V. Moore, also Republican, needs to account for in order to balance his books. Mr. Bartley is unquestionably pa- the victim of a too lenient policy in sas asisting his friends in a financial way. sy, Mr. Bartley deposited large sums of a money in various State banks to help Ir. them through the crisis. Several of ond these subsequently failed and' others ity were so closely pressed that it was im ion possible to discharge the obligation. ery Bartley says that in the course of time had every cent will be paid. The shortage ion, in Auitor Moore's accounts has not so ;ity far been explained. that Crabtree Acquitted. Od On July 26 B lst Green B. Crabtree stabbed and killed Dr. Isaac N.
