Last Monday, while employed on a
roof at the residence of B. F. Taylor,

where bis injuries were attended to.
While nothing serious is apprehend

some days. He had a similar fall
from a roof in Plymouth some months

Jack Williams, an old miner, who
has worked in the mines of this
county for the past 25 years, died in
the county hospital last Monday, of
miners' consumption. For several
years he had been incapacitated from
work, because of his physical infirm
ities. He was living around Weiland
for a long time, previous to coming
to Jackson. For a week or two he
was staying at J. Chirm's lodging
house. Saturday he, was persuaded
by bis friends to go to the hospital,
foreseeing that the end was near.
Mariana Salina, a patient in the
county hospital submitted to a
surgical operation for rupture some
five months ago in San Francisco.
The operation was successful, except
that the incision made by the knife
has refused to heal ever siuce, and
has b«en the source of considerable
pain and annoyance. On Monday Dr.
Endicott, who was called into the
case decided that there was some
foreign body in the flesh, and resolv
ed to hunt for it and remove it. He
finally located a piece of kangaroo
tendon which bad been used in
stitching the original wound. It was
in circular shape, as large as a dollar
piece. By the oversight of the surgeon
it bad been left concealed in the
wound. With this removed there is
no doubt the wound will rapidly heal
from now on.

A Big Blaze.
A fire broke out at three o'clock
this morning ou tbe Hamilton tract,
in the bouse owned by A. Perovich,
aud occupied by tho family of Antone
Glavocich. Mr GJavocich was away
at the time, on night shift at the
mine, lluw the fire should originate
at such an unusual hour, is a mystery.
It appears, however, tbat Mrs Glavo
cicb, feeling pick, got up between one
and two o'clock, and lighted a fire,
and prepared a cup of coffee, and
the only theory that can beformed is
that the fire started from this. The
first seen of it was in the kitoben
roof near the store pipe. It was a
five ot a six roomed house, and an
entirely frame building, and burned
like matchwood. The fire bell rang,
but tew heard it. Pistol shots were
fired to give the alarm, but before
tbe firemen could get to the scene,
the house was enveloped in flames.
It was entirely consumed, with all
its contents. Tbo next building on
the north is tbe dwelling of A. Fran
atovicb mid the marble and stone cut
ting establishment connected there
with. He was away in the mountains
at the time, so the place tbat night
was unoccupied. All efforts were di
rected towards saving the machinery
and marble work in the rear of .the
dwelling, the value of which is
considerable. With a strong stream
of water, these were saved, lut the
dwelling was gutted, and furniture
The Perovich house was insured for
$500, and tbe funiture tor a like
amount. Franatovich's loss is also
fully covered by insurance, but tbe
amount we have not learned.
The Democratic Party.
It has leaked out tbat a meeting of
the officials and leaders of tbe vii
terrified party was held here last
week. It was a sort of informal con
ference to agree upon a ticket for
county officers to be submitted at
tbe forthcoming election. Tbe con
vention of delegates may decline to
aoide by the decisiou reached by the
gathering referred to. It is said that
the slate as proposed is U. S. Gregory
for sheriff; George Kirkwood for
county clerk; Lawrence Burke toi
assessor, if he can be persuaded to
accept that position, which is by no
raeiins certain. The rest o? the ticket
to be filled by present incumbents.
Justice of the Peace.
A special meeting of the board oi
supervisors is slated for to-morrow to
appoint a justice ot the peace for
township one, on account of the
vacancy caused by the death of H.
Goidner. Thero are several aspirants
for the office. Under the present
salary law, it is looked upon as some
thing of a snap— little to do, and big
pay for doing it. R. W. Ketcbam
circulated a petition Monday, and
secured over 30 of the representative
citizens, and filed tbe same with the
clerk of the board. There is no
question about tbe honesty of his
intentions, and courage to do what
he deems right in the premises if
selected. Alfred Goldner, sou of the
deceased justice, is also out for the
office, and has circulated a petition
to that end. It is believed that
others would like the salary, but
whether they will go to tbe extent ot
getting out a petition or not we do
not know. We understand that a
petition with not less than thirty
signatures must form the basis of
toe appointment. There is lots of
speculation, as to who stands the
most likely chance to secure the
plum. The outcome may prove a
surprise to the majority. Of course,
supervisor Strohm will have the say.
Such matters are largely left to the
representative of the district con
cerned. And whoever Strohm wants
will no doubt be selected.
The I. & E. Road.
Parties traveling over the railroad
between Jackson and lone can hardly
fail to notice the almost continuous
screech of the locomotive whistle--the
cry of the iron horse for trespassers
to clear the track. Probably no other
line of the same length in tbe world
has this warning voice liited so often
as on this road. Why is it. What
peculiar conditions exist on the 1. &
Ei. road to make this persistent
shrieking necessary. The other day
we were told one -probably tbe true
explanation of this matter. The
track crosses the main county road
no less than five times in its entire
length of fourteen miles — an average
ot more than once every three miles.
These crossings are without gates or
guards. 'Ihe road is fenced its ontire
distance with the exception of these
contacts with the public road, and at
those points, it is easy lor stock
cattle and horses-- to get on the
track. And as a matter of fact they
do get on the track, as they used to
get on wagon roads io the palmy days
of dust and mud. Aud remembrance
of tbe oIJ freighting days clings to
these brutes. They used to lazily
occupy the middle of the road, refus
ing to budge, until slow wagon or
stage was right upon them. It takes
time to drum into their understand
ing thit the locomotive is a swifter
concern than the mountain schooner.
Hence, the continuous yell of tbe
locomotive at curves and crossing
places— and that means the whole
length of the road — to get out of the
way. Not unfiequently tho train
slows up to give them time to clear
the track. It is quite a novel experi
ence for the engineer, but be hopes
to educate his straying bauds to a
proper appreciation of the situation
in due time.

Felice Dossi vs. Allesio Dal Porta.
—This is> a suit for §1000 damages for
malicious arrest and imprisonment of
plaintiff at the instance of defendant.
The oomplbint alleges defendant made
complaint before W. L. Rose, justice
of Sutter Creek, stating that Dossi
had absconded with intent to defraud
Dal Porta as boarding house keeper
in the sum of 87.50. On this charge
plaintiff was arrested by the sheriff
in San Francisco on the 23d of
March, 1900, and afterwards brought
to Amador oounty, where he was
held in the county jail until April 5.
IUO6, at which time the action wat
dismissed and Dossi discharged.
Plaintiff was put to 825 actual costs
in attorney foes and costs of defend
ing tbe case, and has boon injured,
humiliated and disgraced, by such
imprisonment. He therefore asks
for 81000 damages together with costs
of suit.
Rev. Winning's Brother Missing.
Ernest Winning, a brother of .Rev.
C. E. Winning, employed as an in
surance collector in Watsonville,
Santa Cruz county, has been missing
siuce the 2Uth of May. He is over 40
years ot age, and a man of family,
having a wife and four children. He
left his home in the above named city
on the morning in question, to go to
his office. He called on bis brother
—the M. E. minister located there, on
the way, and afterwards met a triend
and had a brief talk, and that is the
last seen of him. He failed to return
to dinner, aud an appointment in the
afternoon to met his wife to prepare
for memorial day was unkept. He
was a man devoted to his family, and
of exemplary habits. His disappear
ance has led to search parties and in
quiries ever since, but not a trace has
been found. Rev. C. E. Winning went
to Watsonville last week to look into
the matter, but to no purposes. His
books were found to be straight, and
it'ia not believed that he has ab
sconded. The impression is that fouj
play is at the bottom of this mystery.
Rev. C. E. Winning, and his broth
er minister, the pastor at Watfionvillo,
are at present on a vacation, at tho
same time doing their best to find a
clue to unravel the affair. Under the
circumstances, they are unnerved
from attendiug to pastorial duties at
present. Thoy are now in Mariposa

Tho special session ot the state
legislature adjourned Tuesday. It was

lawmakers ever^convened, lasting 10
days. It manifested consideration
for the sad circumstances, which
brouebt the members together, the
biggest blot on its record being the
825 grab per member for incidental
expenses, which was nothing less
than a barefaced steal.

W. 0. Clark Recovers the Stolen
W, O. Clark, the noted temperance
advocated returned from his trip to
the eastern states ou Tuesday of last
week. Tho papers have reported the
fact that his pocket book eoutaiuing
a numer ot checks of considerable
value, was stolen while he was on a
street car in New York. But the
whole story has not been told. It
seems ou tbe evening in question,
tbe temperance lecturer was on hi
way home with relatives from a
meeting, it was late at night. Tbe
car was crowded. W. O. as soon as
be boarded it, was surrounded by
several men, evidently acting in con
cert, who pressed close to him. He
wore a gold watch chain, and this
conveyed tbe idea that ho was a vic
tim worth fleecing. During this
press, his pocket book was extracted.
He was aware ct the game at once,
and suspicion was directed to one
man, who left the car at the first
stopping place. One of Clark's re
latives followed the man fur a block
or two, but failed to catch up with
him, nr get within recognizing dis
tance. The checks were on New
York banks, aud not on Utah, as the
papers stated. There was only five
dollars iv money in the pocket bonk.
Several days after the bank on which
these checks were drawn, received
them inclosod in au envelope, with a
note reading, "Please return or
deliver inclosed checks to the
owner. The Finder.
The money was not returned. In
the pocket book were extracts from
papers, showing tbe good work of W.
O. Clark iv the temperance move
ment, and realizing the philanthropic
nature of the victim, the pick pocket,
it is supposed, resolved to return the
checks. So Clark lost only 55 by the
robbery. The checks were unendots
ed, so tbat any attempt ou the part of
the robber to cash thorn would have
been frustrated. The veteran temper
ance advocate congratulates himself
upon getting off so easily, and be
lieves that the checks were surrender
ed under the conscientious scruples
of the guilty party.

Death of Herman Goldner.
Herman Uolduer, sifter a long ill
ness, died on Thursday evening,
June 7, at his residence in Jacksou.
He had beeu failing for some years,
the break-up incident to old age. He
was 'i 9 years and four months old.
He was born in Germany, but eauio
to this state in 1819. He first went to
Flaceiville, and afterwards moved
into Amador, being one of the
pioneer settlers. In 1875 he was
elected justice of the peach, of "town
ship oue. and filled that position
with the exception of one or two
terms, during which he held the
office of postmaater of Jacksou, con
tinuously up to the time^ot his death.
His wife preceded him to the grave
many years ago. He leaves three
sons, Alfred, Robeit and lsidor, and
five daughters, two of whom are

endeavor to straightou out the finan
cial tangle in the affairs of the pro
peity at Pine Grove. He left the
mine in the hands ot two of the
principal cjeditors to clean up the
bedrock, and thereby endeavor to get
the money that is due them. The
clean-up was started Monday morn

Bunker Hill.— lt is pleasing to be
able to state that this property—
under the management of superin
tendent E. H. Harrington— continues
to develop into a solid uiine. The
clean-up last mouth was better than
for any previous month in the history
of the mine. We are not in a position
to state the exact yield, but tor the
number of stamps working, the out
put was in excess of any other mine
in the county. The future of the
property is very flattering, as the
ore-bodies justify the belief that
prosperity is not to be transient, but
ibiding for many years to come.
We are informed that the Havilab
mine at Nashville, El Dorado county,
was closed down for good as far as
the recent company is concerned last
Monday. The company bad been
operating it on an option for three
years. Pumps have been taken out,
nud the company has quit the field.
This is a serious blow to that mining
section, which is just across the
Cosumnes river, four miles beyond
June 7. — The recent succession of
storms have given a somewhat dubi
ous complexion to tbe crop outlook
in the valley. Very few of the fields
were in condition to stand up under
the slaughter ot wind acd rain, and
some of tbe finest prospects tbe valley
had ever known, have been knocked
exceedingly flat. The orchards re

A A lawj-cr'n Trie*.
When Baron Bramwell was once elt
tiug on the crown side on the south
Wales circuit counsel for the defense
in a certain case asked leave to ad
dress the jury in Welsh. The case be
ing a simple one, permission was given
without demur. He said but very few
words. The baron also did not think
much comment was necessary, but was
somewhat startled by a prompt verdict
If acquittal.
"What was it," he afterward in
quired, "that Mr. L. said to the jury?"
"Oh, he just said: 'This case, gentle
men, lies in a nutshell. You see your
selves exactly how it stands. The
judge is au Englishman, the prosecut
ing counsel is au Englishman, the com
plainant is au Englishman, but you are
Welsh, and I am Welsh, and the pris
oner is Welsh. Need I say more? I
leave it all to you.' "
It is scarcely necessary to mention,
says the writer of "Some Legal Hemi
niscences," that Baron Bramwell did
not allow tbe experiment to be repeat
ed of addressing the jury in a language
which he did not understand. "
Name Coincidences.
An English paper is collecting name
coincidences. At Cambridge universi
ty are two Japanese students, M. Setla
and M. Wisugi (pronounced whisky).
Their names are side by side on the
residence list. J. Hunter reports that
he was once asked to fill a vacant vil
lage pulpit. The regular preacher bore
the name of Fox. In Leeds Miss Orange
married a Mr. Peel. There is fear that
an offspring of this happy union will
hyphenate the two Buntames. Another
matrimonial case is quoted by a corre
spondent from the published "Diary of
John Epps, M. D." On page 005 the
doctor notes: "Feb. 17. This morning
a patient consulted me named Ann
Devil. Finding she was a single wom
an, I suggested that some day she
might become Ann Angel, which made
her smile, though she was in great
pain." A note made later states, "The
curious thing Is that she did marry a
Mr. Angel."
An Example of Dnring.
During the hottest fighting in the
Shipka pass the leading battalion of
the Russian General Dragomiroff's di
vision recoiled before a hailstorm of
Turkish bullets. The general was a
very stout person and had the ap
pearance of a peaceful German pro
fessor. But when he saw his men re
coll he dismounted and walked slow
ly to and fro along a ridge swept by
the enemy's bullets. He was a hun
dred yards in advance of the men, oc
cupying the position they had abandon
ed. After staying there for awhile
without being touched he shouted back
to the battalion: "What are you doing,
you geese? Did you think there was
danger here? I don't find any!" The
men responded with a roar of cheers,
doubled up to him and charged so
fiercely that the Turks were forced to
Why Hands Help Marching.
All men who have any appreciation
of music feel prompted to step in time
to- a march tune, and music on the
march therefore substitutes a new and
pleasanter stimulus to exertion for the
monotonous and somewhat dreary one
of keeping place in the ranks. It is
well knowu that weariness is, as a rule,
more a matter of mind than of body
and that the muscles of the body do
not tire half so soon as the nerve cen
ters which move them. Music, by
bringing a fresh nerve center into play,
will often banish all sense of weariness
and will even sometimes afford rest to
the usual nerve center, so that when
the music ceases the soldier feels fresh
er than before it began.
Starting Tight Screws.
To start a tight screw pres3 the
screwdriver firmly iv place with one
hand, but do not turn it. Then take
hold of it sideways with flat jawed
pliers as close to the head of the screw
as possible and turn it with them. A
hand vise is better than pliers. Leave
just enough of tie tip of the screw
driver outside the vise to fill the slot o£
the screw, but no more. This reduces
the danger of breaking or bending a
badly tempered screwdriver to a mini
mum.—Scientific American.
Laughed First.
"What is the matter, darling?" asked
the concerned mother when her small
son came to her in tears.
"Well, you see, mummy, daddy was
hanging a picture, and he dropped it,
and it fell on his toe."
"But that is nothing to cry about,"
cried the mother cheerily. "You should
have laughed at that,. sonny."
"I did, mummy," responded her
small sou regretfully.— London Globe.
