O Official Paper of Amador co.
a Bugaboo About Law.
We have no patience with tbe hue
and cry usually heurd about the en
forcement of concededly bad and un
just laws. Tbe better plan to deal
with iniquitous laws is to ignore
them; let them remain dead upon
the statute books— monuments only
to crude notions of those who passed
them. No amount of enforcement
will make a poor law seem right in
tbe minds of honest law abiding men.
When we say "law abiding" men —
we refer to those wbo have tbe high
est respeot for true laws — Jaws which
safeguard the rights of citizens;
which protect the man in his person
and the enjoyment of his property,
and punishes the wrong doer who
attempts to injure him in such rights.
It is only such enactments that are
entitled to tbe sacred name of "law."
Others are of the counterfeit stamp,
and as such are worthy of the con
tempt rather than the respect of up
right men. It makes one tired to
hear people say that simply because
some enactment has been branded
"law" it therefore should be en
forced—regardless of its character —
regardless of whether it is of tbe
genuine or bogus kind. Away with
such ideas. Law is the condensation
of the wisdom of the ages as to what is
right between man and man. Through
travail and darkness ot past ages we
have reached the light of the present.
Doubtless we are tar removed yet
from the perfect day, but we are
inmeasurably ahead of tbe centuries
that have gone before. Some of
tbe greatest atrocities recorded in
history were perpetrated under the
guise and in tbe name of law. In tbe
dark ages they did what some would
seemingly be willing to do now — use
the law to throw a fitful glamor of
sanctity around iniquity. It was
under color of law that some of the
world's greatest and best men were
tortured and executed. The fires of
martyrdom, the tortures of the in
quisition, were all sanctioned by law.
So called witches were put to death
at the stake in conformity with tbe
laws of those times. No doubt the
same argument was resorted to in de
fense of such persecution in those
days that we hear once in a while
now— "the best way to get rid of a
bad law is to enforce it."
This subterfuge of an excuse has
not passed muster witn the verdict of
history. Those who forfeited their
lives in protest against unrighteous
laws, are hailed in these days as
heroes, who sacrificed life in tbe
cause of right; while those who aided
in the enforcement of such laws are
looked upon as the real criminals.
No sentimental nonsense of the sanc
tity of everything that is branded as
law is allowed to redeem the per
secutors from the infamy ot their
deeds, or to rob the persecuted from
their well-earned niche in tbe temple
of fame. The martyrs in thebrigther
light ot this age, were the law
makers, while the officials who
hounded them to death were the law
breakers. Would it not have been
far better for the reputation of those
days, if the iniquitous laws under
which such deeds were done, had
been allowed to perish on the statute
books of sheer inanition, than to
have called down the condemnation
of future generations by the mon
strous injustice of their enforcement.
Public opinion has been educated up
to a point far beyond the record of
dark ages, and will not as a rule bow
down before every idol that bears
the superscription of "law." Nowa
days men believe they are not justifi
ed in perpetrating a wrong in the
name of law; that by fidelity to their
convictions of right, they best serve
the cause of law. And this change
of sentiment is not a retrograde, but
a forward movement of the highest
Railroad Extension.
D. McCall and others have been up
in the mountains during the past
week, in the interest of the extension
of the railroad to the timber belt.
We are pleased to be able to state
that this project is neither dead nor
sleeping. The present terminus of
the I. & E. road is a great advantage
to the mineral belt in the way of
facilities to bring in supplies, ana
for passenger travel, but it has little
influence in opening up the resources
of the eastern sections -the timber,
stone, and agricultural capabilities
of that region. For timber, especi
ally there is now, and will be for
years, an immense demand. With a
railroad to tap that belt, Amador
county would be in a position to
command a fair share of that trade.
Tho prosperity of a county depends
more upon its export than import
trade. "The export brings money to
our people; import trade means the
outflow of wealth. Mr McCall is en
ergetically working to build up the
export trade. Everyone having tbe
welfare ot Amador county at heart
will wish him and his fellow pro
jectors success in this venture.

Notes on San Francisco.
We visited the site of the Valencia
hotel. So many contradictory stories
have been floated in reference to the
work of the earthquake at this point
that we were curious to see and judge
for ourselt. It has been reported that
the building not only collapsed with
the shock, and killed scores of in
mates, but that the two lower stories
sank rnto the earth from ten to fifteen
feet. The building was utterly des
troyed by fire after the quake. Its
site remains today, we were informed
by those living in that vicinity, prac
tically the same as the flames had
left it— no clearing to speak ol had
been done. Indeed, being a frame
building, there was little scope for
clearance. The cremation process left
nothing but a tew ashes, and the re
mains of articles ot iron and tinware.
There is abundant evidence that this
section ot tbe city reoeived the brunt
of the shock. The street is wavy, the
water mains were broken within fifty
feet ot the hotel site, and the sewers
were partly destroyed. Hillocks and
depressions are visible in plenty.
The street is still impassable for
traffic owing to a hole in the highway
made mostly by the water rushing
from the ruptured mains. Wn saw
no signs of a sink in the ground to
swallow up half of a four story build
ing. The ground did sink perhaps
four or five feet, not more. The idea
of the disappearance of two stories
into the earth is accounted for in this
way: i'he upper stories telescoped in
to the lower stories, so that the third
story stood on the ground as well as
the basement. That is probably the
true explanation of the phenomena.
That some were drowned while impris
oned in the fallen structure is prob
If any flssuros or deep openings were
made in the earth by the earthquake,
we failed to see them. There are
cracks in abundance; also evidences
of a sliding movement of the ground
in many places. These are more no
ticeable where nature had formed ra
vines or water courses, which had been
filled in by human agency tor build
ing purposes. The Valencia hotel
stood on ground of this character.
And in other parts of the city tilled
ground has settled considerably. On
Van Ness avenue, near Vallejo street,
and around the ferry depot cracks
and depressions exist.
A visitor is surprised to see so
many signs "To let," To lease," not
only through the burned district, bat
the unscoicbed part of the city.
There are houses in plenty to rent.
This is strange, when fifty or sixty
thousand are still living in tents
furnished at public expense. It may
be that the rents asked are beyond
the means of the wage earners to pay.
These signs are perhaps the mute
witnesses to the nervousness of the
people who have not yet got over the
scare sufficiently to live under roofs.
That the latter feeling abounds is
evidenced by the fact that numbers
are still occupying tents in their own
yards, instead of sleeping in their
own houses. .
Some timid ones are afraid to live
m the city. A few will leave it for
good, or intend to do so, when they
settle up outstanding business. For
all that, San Francisco will experi
ence no permanent harm. Such souls
are not the human material that has
made the city by the bay what it has
been and is. The grit and pluck of
the pioneer spirit will rebuild
stronger and better than before, and
tbe timorous ones who now desert her
in tribulation will be among tbe first
to return when the city by the deter
mined will power of others has re
gained something like the glory ot its
former self.
San Francisco is changing with
every day. It is surprising what
work has already been done in remov
ing the tire scars. Buildings are
dotting the burned area in eveiy
direction as if called into existence
by the magician's wand. How long
will it take to restore it to the "city
beautiful" that is to be is a matter of
opinion, and opinions will differ
according to temperament of the
individual. It is not uncommon to
hear visitors among tbe ruins give
their version that thirty, forty or
fifty years, will be required to work
the transformation. Hut talk to the
men who are actually engaged in the
work of upbuilding, and they will
tell a very different story. "Two
years will accomplish it," said cne to
the writer. 'Ihis may be a roseate
view; still we are inclined to the
opinion that two or three years will
suffice to cover up the traces of
havoc. Much ot this renovation may
be temporary buildings, and ten years
may possible elapse before San Fran
cisco in architectural beauty will be
beself again.
School Picnic.
In spite of the threatening weather
and tbe ban of tbe pedagogues, last
Sunday turned out to be an ideal day
to celebrate the posponed joint school
picnic of Clinton and Middle Fork.
The large crowd began to arrive on
th« picnio grounds at Clinton early
in the morning, and by noon tbe
number reached to hundreds. The
selection of the grounds was a good
one as there were many large trees to
afford shelter for the jovial crowd.
Ice cream and many other thirst
allaying beverages were served to the
people gratis. A swell raviola
luncheon was spread at 12:30. The
Piue Grovß bniss band furnishbd
music for the occasion. During the
intermission the air was filled with
the harmonious music, with grapba
phones and other instruments galore.
At 2:30 the Pine Cirove boys crossed
bats with the Middle Fork nine. The
game was very exoiting, and ended a
victory for Pine Grove by a good
margin. 'Ihe last hours of the dsy
neie spent in tripping tbe light
fantastic by those who desired to
dance. Tbe good wishes of tbe
crowd were expressed for the teachers
ot the respective districts, wlio gave
the people the idea ot a picnic. All

Professor Roy Kavoue Rogers of the
University ot California was tbe star
witness Tuesday, says tbe Stocktdn
Independent, lie is tbe chemist who
made the chemical analysis of certain
portions of MoVicar's body furnished
him by coroner Southworth at tbe
conclusion ot tbe autopsy held in tbe
city tbe night tbe mysterious trunk
was discovered at tbe Southern Pacific
depot. By a series ot scientific rea
soning and analysis he was able to
definitely say to the court and jury
that A. N. McVicar came to his death
directly from the partaking of a
portion of morphine equivalent to
about five grains.
Une of the interesting features of
the examination of tbe witness was
the presence of an improvised labora
tory, which he was prepared to es
tablish upon one of the tables used by
the attorneys. He carried with him
certain appliances used in making the
tests and experiments necessary to
explain, make clear and prove his
statements, and for over an hour held
the undivided attention not only of
the jury and other persons connected
with the case, but of the entire audi
ence filling every available space in
the court-room. His chemical tests
and explanations were not only inter
esting but highly instructive.
The evidence of tbe chemist cover
ed a wide Held, much of it was general
while more of it was directed specifi
cally to the elements of what was at
issue before him. Professor Rogers
held that the body of A. N. McVicar
contained at the time of death about
5.6 grains of morphine, four or five
times more than enough to produce
death in the ordinary individual.
Such an estimate was based upon the
portions of morphine found in differ
ent organs of the body examined by
him for the drug. He said that upon
leaching a distributing point mor
phine or drugs of a similar nature
immediately began the process of
secretion, and through regular chan
nels reached all portions of the body
in a more or less equal degree.
He claimed that morphine affected
various people in different ways. In
some it produced death in five to
thirteen hours, while abnormal cases
are recorded where persons lived a
number of days before death. He
said that for most people one gram of
the drug would result in death, while
it was almost universal that two
grains were sure death. His practical
illustrations, called "color tests,"
snowed tbe effect of the smallest
quantity of the deadly drug upon
certain acids, demonstrating a similar
effect upon the tissues and cells of a
human body.
Tbe methods employed in examin
ing and analyzing the organs for
poison were minutely described. He
said the chloral hydrate was found in
tbe organs of deceased along with
quantities ot morphine. From por
tions of the pancreas, stomach, liver
and fluids submitted to him for
chemical analysis he secured 3.7 milo
grams ot morphine to the 2.2 pounds
of matter, while from tbe fluid taken
from the bladder he obtained 6 milo
grams to the 1000 grains. The organs
were examined for opium poisoning,
but although morphine was an extract
from opium yet an acid found in no
other dtug was a distinguishing
feature, and consequently he examin
ed tor alkaloid morphine in some one
of its various forms.
The direct examination of Professor
Rogers was technical to the smallest
detail, but at the end only established
the one point, that poison was tbe
cause ot death and that poison was
The cross-examination of Dr. S. E.
Latta by attorney l-'airull was con
cluded early in the morning, and
brought out no point other than that
tbe physician thought asphyxia had
much to do with McVicar's death.
He was again examined upon the five
contusions or bruises found upon tbe
head of tbe deceased, and was unable
to quality his statement as to how the
bruises were sustained, but was posi
tive that they were ante-mortem.
Dr. J. P. Hull, also one of tbe au
topsy physicians, was sworn, and gave
testimony corroborating Dr. .Latta.
He believed that about a pint of
blood flowed from the body of Mc-
Vicar while enclosed in the trunk and
before death. The witness said be
would be surprised to see blood flow
from the body after death, even if it
were fluid.
On Wednesday thn testimony got
down to the facts in the case.
Expressman Charles Barry, who
moved tbe trunk laden with the re
mains of a dead man from room 97 of
the California hotel to the baggage
room of the Southern Pacific, seemed
anxious to hurry through his. testi
mony. On Saturday, March 21, was
driving a wagon for George O. Wilson,
having his stand near the corner
occupied by Koseobaum's store. He
first delivered the trunk to the Cali
fornia house shortly after it was pur
chased. He left it in front of the
door of room 97 and no person ap
peared to take it. Later he saw a
woman, whom he believed to be Mrs
Le Doux, at the corner of Main and
Sutter street. She gave him a check,
asking him to get a parcel of baggage
from tbe Southern Pacific depot, and
which had just arrived on the Sierra
Railway Company's train from the
Mrs Le Doux thereupon told him
that she was in a "hurry" to catch
the 1 o'clock outgoing train and that
she desired the trunk and tier baggage
taken to the depot. it developed,
however, that she could not leave on
the desired train and Mr Barry was
directed to call at the room 97 at 2
o'clock, where »he would have a
stout rope, which she wanted to get
herself, for him to rope trunk. At 2
o'clock Mr Barry called at the room
and assisted by a Mr Kuddy, roped
the trunk, which Mr Barry said seem
ed to have the weight all in one end.
He said that the woman claimed that
she had dishes in the trunk and that
it would be very heavy to lift, and
would weigh about 275 pounds. After
ropiog the trunk it was removed to
the bottom ot the stairs, loaded iuto
the wagon and taken to the Southern
Pacific baggage rooms and placed
upon the sills of one of the large
windows. Ho said just as he arrived
at the depot the same woman who
directed him to remove the trunk ap
proached him from Weber avenue,
just back of the waiting ruom of tbe
depot and paid him 75 cents tor hit
work. Mr Barry said he told the
woman the trunk was exceptionally
heavy and that he had to hire a man
to help him. It seems tbe woman
made no remarks but paid the money.
Alter a very short examination of
John D. Kuddy, who assisted the
expressman in removing' the trunk.
C. B. Hart ot the H. C. Shaw Com
pany was B worn and in a general way
identified the accused woman as the
same person who appeared at the H.
(J. Shaw Company's store between
11:30 and 12 o'clock of the morning
of Saturday, March 21th, and pur
chased the iope shown the witness
and which was wrapped around the
trunk. He said she asked tor 25
cents' worth of rope, or sufficient to
securely wrap a trunk of designated
dimensions, which she had packed
with dishes. The paper and string
holding the rope purchased were
identified by the witness as paper and
string similar to that used by the
Shaw Company.
A milliner from the firm of Eck
strom & Smith, having a place of
business on Main street, was also a
witness and testified to the fact that
a woman similar in appearance to
Mrs Le Doux was in the store about
one hour Saturday afternoon of
March 24th and purchased a hat.
Some 50 more witnesses are to be
examined tor the people. The case
is not likely to be finished before
two weeks.

Monday morning digging trenches to
lay the sewer pipe along the east side
of Main street from the National
hotel to tbe Marelia corner, and
thence up Court street, as tar as
Summit street. The dumping place
is below tbe junction ot the south
and middle fork of Jackson creek, in
the rear of the stage stable. Tbe pipe
is eight inches in diameter. V. S.
Garbaiini is supervising tbe work.
The pipe will be laid fully three feet
from the surface; in some places con
siderably deeper. Along Main street
the ground is found to be all soft,
made ground, as soon as the thin
coating ot rock on the surface is
penetrated. The men are employed
in digging, and the excavation part
will be completed in a few days.
