! A Robber Knock* Down Trauarcr Htofrn
At I*dU Rons, California, I.ook* Him
In the Safe and Carries off OS.OOO-
Stolen Kelea«e<i After Eight Hour*
Santa Rosa, Gala., Dec. 28. —Santa
; Rosa had the biggest sensation in Its
history to-day. The couuty treasury
was robbed of nearly SB,OOO and Coun
ty Treasurer Stofeu was left Insensible
in the vault to suffer death by the rob
! bers, who locked the door of the vault
cm him. The robbery occurred about 0
o'clock this morning, but was not dis
covered until about 5 o’clock tills after
noon. All this time Couuty Treasurer
Stofen lay upon the lloor of the vault
gasping for breath, fearing every mo
ment during conscious Intervals would
be his last. Had it not been for the
timely arrival of his wife, the only per
son In town who knew the combina
tion. he would have been dead. She
had been at Cloverdale, und on her re
turn here about 4 o’clock learned that
: the treasurer had not been home to
dinner. The children said they had
taken his dinner to him and left it In
: front of the office, but they could not
: got in.
Mrs. Stofen, suspecting something |
wrong, rushed down to the office, i
which is on the south corner of the j
court house, and adjoining the slier- |
llT's office. The door was locked, but j
with the aid of the Janitor she opened |
the door. Between the front part of
tlie office and treasurer's front office
is a wicket gate. This also was locked.
Once inside, Mrs. Stofen found her
f**ars realized. On one desk was her
husband’s coat and hat. On the floor
in confusion were money trays on
which the treasurer carried money
from the vault, which is in a rear of
fice. to his desk in the room. About
that time a faint knocking was heard I
from inside the vault. .Mrs. Stofen
cried out that her husband was in the
vault and that sli** could save him if
she could remember the combination.
The first time she tried she failed ow- }
lug to her great excitement. Next time .
realizing that her husband’s life de I
l>eiided upon h«*r coolness, she was sue- :
oossful and the big iron doors of the
vault slowly swung oj>en.
Treasurer Soften was found on the
floor of the vault unconscious, the safe j
door was open and most of the money
removed. Treasurer Stofen, as hood as i
he revived, said he opened up the of- j
flee as usual about D o'clock. As he j
was carrying out the trays with money i
from the vault, a tall man In stocking
feet stepped Into the door of tlie vault!
and with uplifted dagger in his right j
hand, told him to drop the trays, which ;
he did. As he stooped over to lay the ;
trays down tlie robber struck him a (
powerful blow on the back of the head '
which rendered him unconscious, for :
how long he could not tell. He says j
the man was tall and wore chin white |
kers, and must have gained admittance j
to the office during the night and wait
ed for him to open the safe.
Officers are scouring the country for
the robber, but not a trace has been
Officers say there have been a nnm
ber of hard-looking characters Id town
recently, but most of them have been
common tramps. It is the belief of
many that the job was done by parties
living In Santa ICosa, who are familiar
with county offices, and knew just how
to proceed to loot the treasury. Owing
to the start the robber bad, officers
think the chances of finding him are
rather few. There are many theories
as to how th*- robber got into the of
fice, but the most general belief Is that
he got into the office Thursday night
and hid until the treasurer opened the
vault and walked Into it
H« Expire* Suddenly at San FrancUco
Saturday Morning
San Francisco, Dec. 20.—Ex-Senator
James G. Fair died suddenly at the
: Lick house at 12:20 this (Saturday)
| Senator Fair had been in poor health
for some time, suffering from asthma.
A few days ago he caught cold while
going out in a rainstorm to view some
of his property improvements at North
Meach. The cold did not apparently af
fect his lungs, but settled in his kid
neys. This evening he was feeling bel
ter tiian for the past few days and his
death was entirely unexpected.
Senator Fair was about G 4 years old.
His death was due to a complication of
kidney and stomach troubles. His only
son, Charles G. Fair, wbotn he dlsin
-1 fieri ted about a year ago, was with his
father at the time of his death, a rec
oncllllation having been effected a
short time ago.
i Senator Fair was born in Ireland, and
was at one time United States senator
; from Nevada. He made his fortune in
the Comstock lode and was a member
of the famous bonanza firm of Flood.
Mackay, Fair & O’Brien. He largely
: increased his wealth by investments in
I San Francisco and California real es- j
: tate, and his fortune is estimated at
FonUr fining to Japan.
| Washington, Dec. 27.—John W. Fo«-
ter, ex-secretary of state, has been re
quested by the Chinese government to
' go to Japan and meet the plenipoten
! tlaries of the former government to
* aid them in their negotiations for
i peace. He has accepted the Invitation
and expects to leave Washington with :
in a day or two, sailing from Vancou '
ver for Yokohama on January 7, unless i
informed of a delay In the departure of i
the plenipotentiaries.

Newfoundland Should Join Canada.
London, Dec. 28.—1 n a leader this
morning the Dally News says: What
ever the Issue to the proceedings
against the directors of the Commercial
bank of Newfoundland, the incident
will hardly strengthen the public con
fidence on which the poor remnant of
Newfoundland’s prosperity rests. The
colony must now see cause to regret its
short-sighted refusal to enter the do
minion. Had it joined the Canadian
confederation It would have a better j
claim for support from its sister coin- \
muoUgr than it can now advance. j
The Telegraph says: Something must J
be done to extricate Newfoundland. We \
cannot help thinking that the wisest
eventual course will be for the colony j
to abandon Its Independence and join '

an attendance of something over 200.
The meeting was called to order by
National Chairman Taubeneck.
The usual committees were appoint
ed. In the afternoon a number of reso
lutions were Introduced.
After the evening recess the confer- j
ence resumed the call of states for ex
pressions of opinion with regard to the
best policy for the party to pursue. For
lowa, General Weaver responded, urg
ing his well known financial views and
asking rliut the light of the next two
years until the national election be made
upon the Omaha platform in its entirety
with financial reform well to the front.
Recurring to the resolutions intro- ;
duced on behalf of the Central People's
party committer' of Chicago, the con
ference suspended the rules and passed
unanimously the denunciation of the
imprisonment of Eugene V. Debs, Geo.
I W. Howard and others as an Invasion
I of the rights of free men to a trial by
Jury. Some little debate was Induced
| by a phrase therein referring to Judge
i Woods as one “whose record is a stain
j upon the Judiciary of the country,” but
1 an effort to strike it out failed and the
resolution passed.
Commissioner Breidentbal of Kansas ;

! The remaining S9OO in unaccounted for.
i To-day after corresjiondence by wire j

Cheyenne, Wyo., Dec. 28.—The formal j
order reducing the forces in the Chey

O’Hearne this morning. The order will
go into effect on Monday next. The of

The Union Pacific has recently lost so
many of its connecting lines that there
is no occasion to employ such a large

Oakland, Cala., Dec. 29.—A car on the i
electric line between Alameda and Oak- j
land plunged through the open draw at
the Webster street bridge into the wa- 1
ters of Oakland creek this morning. The ;
draw was open and the inotornmn did
not heed the signals. The conductor and
motor man were the only persons on tlie i
car. They did not have even time |
enough to jump, but went down Into
the water with the car. They escaped
with no more serious injury than a
drenching. Had the car been crowded
with passengers the loss of life would
have been very great, for the car sank !
completely out of sight.

two more despaired of, and the whole j
cargo of cotton is a total loss. John !

The Rny I* Olv.-n Up to th* Little
Washington, Doc. 25.—The president
: and the members of the Cabinet cele- j
} brated Christmas in the old fashioned j
f way, making It essentially ft family af- j
fair. At the White House it wa® a i
genuine children’s day, everything be- j
ing given up to the president’s little j
ones. There was a Christmas tree »et i
in the library, the first that the Cleve- i
land children have called their own, !
and Mrs. Cleveland herself added the
finishing touches to the tree, which, (
while not or great proportions, was
! very beautifully trimmed and decorat- :
ed with tiny parti-colored electric ;
lamps in place of the old-time wax cau
dles. Tlie gifts of the little ones were
j numerous, and until noon the express
wagons and messengers came laden
to the White House. As usual, the
president remembered all of the cm- j
! ployes in the House. Everyone got n
fat turkey and to his personal servants
the president gave substantial gifts
of money, an example which was fol
lowed by Private Secretary Thurber
with his household and attendants.
Mrs, Cleveland also had a pretty lit- j
tie present for each of the employes |
She herself received many Christmas
presents, the president's tokens be
ing very bcaut.ful. The only guest
present at tie Whit*- House was Mrs.
Cleveland’s mother. Mrs. Perrlne, and
the dinner was strictly limited to the j
family. Preceding it, however, there
was a pretty little luncheon set out for
the children of the Cabinet, who came
to the White House to see the Christ
mas tree.
All the members of the Cabinet ate
their dinner at their homes in the bos
om of their families, and perhaps tlie
largest gathering was at the Carlisle
home, where the secretary and Mrs.
! Carlisle entertained their children and
grand children.

' The ex-captain took his son tenet* very

making the actual time of imprison

A Theatrical Munuti r Want.* to Give . r l*-r
a Job.
New Y’ork, Dec. 24.—Madeline Pol
lard, of damage suit fame, Is missing.
Manager M. C. Anderson of the Foun
tain theater, Cincinnati, has been in
New York since Wednesday last hunt
ing the city from Harlem to the Bat- I
tery and from river to river for the
woman who broke the political power
of Colonel W. ('. P. Breckinridge.
The fact that Miss Pollard has not
promised to boa sufficient drawing
card for first-class houses to bill does
; not In the least discourage Mr. Ander
son, who considers that she will be an
unusual drawing card for popular-price
theaters. Manager Powers last sum
I mer had a contract with her for her ap-
I pearance upon the stage of first class
: houses. He learned then that the scar.-
; dal which clustered about the name of
Miss Pollard would make; It impossible ;
; for her appearance at fashionable play
: houses, and the hope which Miss Pol*
I lard then
was for a time shattered.
Now Mr. Anderson beli**ves Mr. Pow
ers mad*- a rnistak in not trying to bill
her at popular-price houses, and as a
result of that belief is exerting every
j energy to find her. Night and day
; since reaching this city he lias been on
; tho go, but jus yet has not. been able to
| locate her. He Is armed with a con- j
: tract, which, i f signed by the young
: woman will call for a large salary each
1 week. That Miss Pollard Is in the city ;
is certain, but in what particular house
is the mystery. She is no longer known !
as Miss Pollard, but has changed her
name to one which suggests nothing of
what her life lias been.
It was but u short time ago that she
obtained a position with a large houso
in cUs city os a typewriter. When her
indentity was learned, she was ln
formed that her services were no long
er needed. Since then she is said 'o ;
have hidden her whereabouts from her
The Cincinnati manager is confident '
that he cat: induce Miss Pollard to sign
! his contract If he can only find her.
