Preliminary Examinations Held. [Jackson Dennis, the president of the Hutter Creek Btate Hank, now In process of liquidation, bad a pre liminary examination before justioe of tbe peaoe, Alfred Goldner, In the supervisors' room in tbe hall, of re cords on Tuesday last. It will be remembered that In tueso oases, an lndiotment was found by tho grand jury last year In each oase. but that ou demurrer tbe indictments were found to be fatally defective by the superior court. The defendant was at once learrested on the two charges, and in default of securing tbe neces sary bail, has been confined in the county jnil pending n hearing. The district attorney deoided to proceed anew by preliminary examinations, and these were held Tuesday. . Tbe defendant was represented by 11. W. Wood, and tbo district attorney ap peared for the prosecution. E. F. Duden, a brother of postmaster Duden of this otty, came up from Sacramento as oMloial reporter. , The first case Inquired into was on an alleged embezzlement of 911,250, the funds of the bank, on ac count of the deposit of 15000 shares of tbe capital stock of tbe A.T.Ames Manufacturing Company of Niles, the stock being valued on tbo bank books as worth 75 cents per share. ' ' \ The first witness examined 'was Peter Dabovich, cashier and secretary of the broken bank: He testified that, the organization of tbe Sutter Creek State bank, the bank commissioners thought the sum ■of 913000 charg ed to the expense account seemed too . large for a bank of that cbaranter,and suggested that it be reduced. On this suggestion Dennis placed the fifteen thousand shares of the capital' stock of tho Ames Manufacturing Company, valued at 750 per share in the bank as an additional asset, thereby ieduo ing the expense iiooount to the extent of 911,250. He did not know by. whom this investment was made. Witness did not; invest- it. ' Defendant .and board' of , directors were,, empowered to make investments. The cash,, on hand March. 13.,, 1907.. was 92038.87; and amount on deposit 879,120.20. 'On .January 22, 1908,- tbe cash on band was 91538.05. In cross examination he stated that no money "went out of |the bank in payment for the Ames stock, but put in to replace other securities. A. J. Ames head of the Ames Manu facturing Co., said he did not place any value on tbe stook. The I com pany was bonded to tbe amount of $100,000. The property of tbe com pany did not exceed 860,000. There was no working capital. Fred Eudey. receiver, of the Sutter Creek bunk, said he took possession of tbe assets of tbe bank on Jnno 4, 1908. He found among tbe >( assets, two certificates uf stock of the. Ames Manufacturing Co. for 15000 shares, valued at 75 cents per share in the bank report. He bad made trips to Niles and Sau Francisco, but could not dispose of stock at any price, aud be considered tbe stook valueless. Tbe defense put in no testimony/ and the oourt took the. matter under ad visement. Tbe other charge .of embezzlement was based on a note for 8500 exeouted by Fred Rabb, for which Rabb re ceived 5 shares of tbe capital stock of tbe Sutter Creek State bank. Rabb testified that he had a conversation some time in 19UU, with defendant about stock. Ho gave his note, and took 5 shares, with tbe understanding that he be credited with three months' interest on note, aud at the- end of that dime be could return tbe stock and take up his note. No money passed between them. Just prior to dosing of the hank in Jan. 11)08, he returned the stook. aud received baok the note. Never borrowed money on the note. Had borrowed money from bank twice, but never as much as 8500. When tbe three - mouths were up be told defendant be would like him to take tbe stock baok. • Fred Eudey testified that the oasb book showed that 1500 had been loan ed Fred Rabb on note. The I amount had never been returned to tbe bauk. The certificate of stock book showed that 5 shares had been transtered from Dennis to Rabb, and retrausfer ed back to Dennis. No testimony was. introduced by defense, aud the matter was taken nnder advisement. Defendant was held to answer, with ball bonds ot 910,000 ou each charge, bonds have not been finished. •• The Man's Store that treats you right IHOKP& CONWAtV ' No. 435 K.

Tbe worst tornado experienced in this pgction occurred between 12 and 1 o'olock Tuesday night. Tbe wind bad been blowing a furious sale for seveial hours previously, but at that time reached Its climax in a storm of the cyclonic order, accompanied by a heavy rain. The wind came from the south, the whirl-wind character snuiiH to have taken In a narrow strip aoross the country. Much damage has been done to buildings, fences, trees, eto., : in this vicinity. Tbe large barn in tho Hoffman ranch, belonging to W. F. Detert, and rented to D. Mattley, was com pletely wrecked. It was substantial ly built. The wind took the roof off, and threw down the sides and south end, laying one portion on the east and the other on the west. On tbe east side was a large shed, and standing loose under this at tbe time of the wreck was a fine bay mare, which had . been taken for pasture belonging to a man named Liefrana of West Point.' . The animal was pinned under the debris, and was discovered the next morning by neighbors, who cut tbrougn the shakes and released her. One eye was knocked out, and other injuries sustained so that she had to be shot to put her out of misery. Tho fierceness of the wind may be imagined when we say that a large section of the roof of this barn, in cluding ratters, was carried bodily a distance of' two hundred . feet. Smaller pieces were carried a much longer distance. Only about ten feet of the north end of the structure was left standing. , The dwelling house of Mrs Rose .between Jackson ''and the Gate was moved fully six feet to the north. The occupants were, in the house at the time, and were moved with the building,, They ' were unhurt, but most of the crockery was broken. It was landed under a tioo, and to the presence ot the. tree is probably due that it was saved from being '^dumped in the creek v /The damage will rer quire an expenditure 1 - of -between -one and two hundred dollars to replace. i A large oak tree in Mrs Langhorst's lot was torn up by the roots, and fell across Summit street, completely blocking that thoroughfare until it was cut up and removed. Tbe grand stand on the athletic clubs' grounds beyond the Zeila mine was unroofed and badly wrecked otherwise. A poroh on tbe John Martin place, on tbe . Mokelumne Hill road, was taken up and laid on tbe other aide of tbe residence. A tree was uprooted on tbe hospital lot, and a portion of the fence on tbe west side blown down. In tbe old Mushett lot adjoiniug tbe hospital, another tree was blown down. Telepbone communication was stopped from outside points by wires being crossed or poles prostrated. ' The Western Union telegraph line to Sacramento was out of commission for a few hours, owing to a break be yond Drytown. .A lazy liver leads to chronic dys pepsia and oonsitpation— weakens tbe whole 'system.

Argonaut— At this mine tbe under ground employes were laid olf Mon day,temporarily,to enable some need ed repairs to be done to the shaft. Tbe track has to be replaced, and other repairs made. About 100 men were laid off. Only ihe repair crews are working in the mean time below the surface, it will take between one and two weeks to complete the re pairing. In the interval the mill will be kept running, there being 'ore enough on hand to last for this short period. The mine is reported to be developing in great shape. There is abundance of ore in sight, the de velopments to tbe south of the shaft being the most encouraging and im portant feature. - - Valparriiso.— A bar' of bullion^weigh iug 162 ounces was shipped from tbe mine, situated in Murphys gulch this week." " 'At .318 per ounce, tbe , bar would be worth -nearly • 83000. This output is the product of four, or five months' work, but it is not tbe total product. During that 'time two smaller shipments have been made. The yield is from 'the nob black metal characteristic of that section. Tbe ore is roasted, -and afterwards crushed by tho roller process. There are five owners. C. Siri, who was killed last week at Kennett, bad a large interest in the property, which he turned over to bis brother shortly before his death. The mine is look ingas well as at any time in Its his tory, and the owners are very sanguine over the outlook. A large quantity of free milling ore has been accumulated on the dump,- awaiting tbe erection of a mill to crush it. Preparations are being made to put un a one stamp mill, witb a crushing capacity of three or four tons per day. Altogether the mine looks bright for a prosperous career from now on. The seams of rich ore con tinues,there being more in sight than has been tbe case for years. Arrested a cough that has been hanging ou for over two months by taking ballard's liorebound Syrup.

Five Cents Per Copy. Communication. Plymouth, Jan. 31, 1900. Editor Amador Ledger: In a notice headed "Sight Injured" in your last number my name is mentioned m a way that might be misleading to thoße not familiar with the circumstances, and 1 ask you to state the . following to avoid any wrong construction which might re flect on me: Mr Demassa wan sent to me by Dr. Endicott for an examination and opinion of his case. I did not give him any treatment, but only what be came for and stated in a sealed letter to Dr. Eudicott, which I gave to Mr Demaaaa to hand him, that his eyeball had a perforating wound in the cornea and iris, and a piece of steel was imbedded In the lens. As there was no pain or inflammation of note, 1 advised Mr Demassa to stay here a few days for observation— not treatment— until I decided whether it would be necessary to remove it at once or wait until the traumatio; cataract, which was forming, would facilitate the extraction of both itself and tbe imbedded body in one opera tion; as both necessarily would have to be removed to save his sight. He agreed to go home again the same day, but returned on tbe following day, and remained a'.fenV days, until that point was settled in tbe satest way for himself. 1 also told him that in Sun Francisco ' the oculist* have a giant electromagnet which oan extract steel from any part of an eye, and that he might go there if be preferred, but that the lens would have to bo extracted afterwards any way. He deoided. while with me to come baok; but chose to go to San Francsco after leaving here, as I see now. He probably did not go back to Dr. Endioott with my letter, as be promised. It looks from, the article like if the presence of tbe steel was a discovery in the metropolis. Other wise 1 refer for substantiating tbe above to the doctor and bis cousiu who was with him. '• . ,'\\<,'-' Yours very, truly, Dr. Thomas boysou. Editor Amador Ledger :— The under signed has seen tbe above statement of Dr. Royson aud in justioe to him will state that it tallies exactly with the one sent me by birn through tbe patient, after he had .examined the case, and consequently also with tbe condition as found by Dr. barkan, to whom 1 sent the doctor's letter with the patient, when be preferred to gu to San Franoieco.
