.Parson Amy of Saranac and- His
Fast Trotters. ' .
7 He Gets Up a Kace Meeting, Drives His Own
- " -.Horses and Defeats all Comers— An
;' „ * Interview With tha Parson. :;.:.
Considerable interest was taken by local
1 ;■ horsemen in a trotting meeting held last
.Saturday sit Saranac, Mien., in which Par
son J" W. Amy, of the Methodist Church
• there, was the prime mover.. ■
... ".Tie. announced two weeks ago from the
; ; ."jiiilp-tt that he had arranged the meeting
. and that lie bad made entries to the differ
.'. i nt events of his own horses, and that he
. . .intended to get into the sulky and drive bis
.'"horses himself. His congregation was eon
7. siderably excited over his statement, but
_ esteeming , him very highly, backed him
-- heartily in his undertaking.
"■". -:The races came off all right over a half
mile track, and were all best two In three.
• Tbe attendance from al! over the State was
: ■■- something 1 enormous. The telegraphic im
port of the racing is as follows: 'X^____\
RELIGION is A sii.ivY. '
7-7 The first was a half mile race, each. owner
-driving bis own Horse. The contestants
. /started well together, bat Parson Amy's
•7/ Amy quickly showed the religious training
if she had enjoyed and forged forward fain
* ously, coming under the wire In 1:2074.
. Parson Amy was erected' with hearty ap
plause and his little nag was showered
with bouquets and good words.
in the second he. it Amy again came off
more than conqueror, making the half mile
in ls'ji. Shout after shout followed this
an.l the' good pars raised aloft his hands
.as though deprecating the noise or about
to dismiss ins congregation.
However, he thought better of it and the
second race was called. It was a contest.
between three-year-olds and was partici
pated in by Amy's Hoggs and two other
entries. Again the parson's excellent work
- showed itself, Bogie taking the heat in
ls-tn. The second heat and race was won
easily by 11 >giv in 1:44. '•
Parson Amy's colt won the third race, it
being a walkaway.
After the races were concluded athletic
■nd field sports were participated in, and
a general good lime was had. In an inter
view the parson said he had been active in
getting the races up, because no one else did,
and he enjoyed racing and was sorry it had
. beeu so much abused.
An Eastern horseman who is visiting the
Cvsist told a Call, reporter the other day
that a friend of bis had called an Parson
Amy early during the present month and
had given him the following account of
what lie had seen at the parsonage. The
visitor's vi lend said:
" 1 went out to see Par-' Amy at
Saranac and have a talk with him about
his horses. The parson's house was pointed

ant face was rubbing down a bay mare iv
the stable. The bald-headed young man
. li iked like a hired band. lie wore a bob
tailed coat, jean trowsers, and 1 blue shirt.
. His bauds were as red as a liveryman's, ana
-his face -• .v- tanned to a russet. '■".:■ - - : :-.

"1 sun Mr. Amy," r- plied the bald
beaded vi mag mart, extending his dump
hand. "What can'l do for you, brother?"
. When he was told he flopped the sweat*"
towel and laughed. "There is not much to

or glory. I wont trot her for money,
though; but let me tell you, brother, this
mate here, she went out' for the money at
Kalamazoo and got it. That was before I
bought her." '.: *
The par?. returned to his rubbing and
tsilked while he worked.
' "1 have had extraordinary success in my
church work here," he said. "Seventeen

ami let him go ahead ; then, when the finish
comes 1 touch un the little one with the

though he was tied to a post. Mr. Goodman
used to think his colt was better than mine,

Christian resignation.

Whin Parson Amy had rubbed down
. the mare he blanketed' ber and led her into
the stall. Then he took his visitor around
1 and showed him another trotter. "This is

.The parson stepped into his little parlor,
where copies of the. Horseman, the Breed
ers' Gazette, the Western Sportsman, and
the life of John Wesley lay on the marble
top center-table, and produced the pedigree
. ' of his horses. Then be returned to the
stable .and led out hisstalliou Dodge, a two

him, .tacked on a pair of toe-weights,
strapped on the boots, deftly hitched him

in his stable cloches and under a ragged
straw hat.
As he moved through town at a four mm.

Mrs. Sarah A. Harris ou Multi-
plied Existence.
Mrs. Sarah A. Harris of Aurora Branch
of the Theosonhical Society, Oakland, de
livered a lecture at Bed Men's Hall, 320
Pest street, last night on tho subject of
"Reincarnation,*' which, with the "Law of
Karma," form the keystone of tho so-called
Reincartion is considered one of the most
obtuse subjects for the Western mind to
. unravel, and it is only when it is considered
with the "Law of Karma" that it receives
sufficient lucidation to entitle it to accept
ance as a hypothesis of the scheme of cre
The lecture on the "Law of Karma,"
which is to be delivered next Sunday, is a'
Continuation of last night's theme, viewed
from the stand point of necessity, karma
being the cause and reincarnation the effect
of certain laws' working.
Mrs. Harris reviewed the subject first
flow its historical side, citing countries and
religions that had embraced it us an expla
nation of their code of morals, and termi
nated by saying: "It is stated that at one
time reincarnation was the universal be
lief, and even now it is held by a vast ma
jority of the world's inhabitants."
."We of the Western world regard it as
an enigma. We stand aghast at the vast
number of questions that come up when
thai word, which is a volume, is mentioned,
and we pause before drawing aside the cur
tain. Wo hesitate to study into this truth
of reincarnation and the problems of lite
and creation.
"To a person accustomed to the orthodox
idea of vicarious atonement, the theories of
reincarnation and karma sire absurdities.
.But let him follow the paths that specula
tion may pursue with nature as a guide,
and he will issue not only a broader idea of
life, but st better idea of God.
"We are told that the periods of day and
night, of life and death, are corresponding
periods of activity and assimilation which
extend throughout all natures They ob
tain, not only in momentary existence, but
eternal life ln the day. in tins seasons,
years, Uvea and cycles. Without tha period
of rest the period of activity would be im
possible, and, vice versa, tho period of ac
tivity is the result of tho impulse or mo
mentum gained during that of assimi
lation. |
'"What we are to-day make up the warp
and woof of what the soul is to be in the
far future. What we are to-day is the cri
terion, fur the same reason, of what we have
been, The organ is modified by the func
tions, and not the functions by the organ.
"At the birth of a people on a planet there
is an influx of souls variously developed
from the silenci of Pralaya, then kind
mother nature has them iv hand. All have
an equal chance, and there is no justice
with the divine were it not so.
" I beosophj sees in reincarnation the only
explanation for different characteristics in
nations and not in individuals. The laws
of heredity sue, if true, the greatest sar
casm that God's creation can throw against
his eternal justice. To be forced Into flesh,
to be incarnated in a body predisposed to
evil is a travesty on tho mercy of God, if
that soul has only the one brief existence to
prepare itself for facing the eternal, from
which there is no appeal. No, 1 regard the
laws of heredity as absolutely misleading,
if not false.
"A soul answers the call of God through
his laws aud reincarnation. Does it go in
a base vessel ? Then it was not far enough
advanced to demand better conditions for its
manifestation. in that way only does the
alleged law of heredity exist."
A Large Blase Prevented iv a Tine-Street

While Officer Harris was standing on the
corner of Kearny and Pine streets, about 8
o'clock last night, he observed a very
bright light in a window on. the second
story of a building at 430 I'ine street. The
light would blaze tip and disappear, but
finally grew in intensity.
Officer Harris ran up the stairs of the
building and kicked in a door leading to
the room where he bad seen the fire. In
the meanwhile an alarm had been rung in
from California and Kearny streets .and
the chemical engine was early ou the scene.
The room was lillea with smoke and Sanies,

of the walls. No water was used and the
stock escaped damage from this source.
The fire is supposed to have been caused
by spontaneous combustion. The loss is
about 825, caused by damage to tha plaster
and molding.
Had the tire broken out late at night a
very disastrous conflagration would have
resulted, as the buildings in the neighbor

Horrible Death of Stephen Hart,
an Alameda Painter.
He Was Boasted Alive in the Loyal Oak
Hotel-Result of the Primaries— A New
Presbyterian Congregation.
The result of Saturday's primaries in Al
ameda County gives 36 to 38 votes out of 45
to Congressman Morrow for Governor in
the State Convention at Sacramento. It is
said that the contests in some of the wards
will have no effect on the nominations for
county officers later on, or on the primaries
for the election of delegates to the County
Convention, but there are somo who believe
that it may have in one or two instances.
Some of the Oakland base-ball cranks aro
inclined to give up the pennant for this
year, on account of the recent games and
the forging ahead by tho Senators. There
are a number, though, who think the

of the season. _*.;"

Stephen 31. Hart Fatally Bnrrrett In the
I.oynl Oak Hotel.
Residents in the vicinity of Park street
and Railroad avenue were aroused s from
sleep about 5 o'clock yesterday morning by
an alarm of fire. Volumes of smoke were
issuing from the roof of the Loyal Oak
Hotel, and as' tbe fire had gained much
headway before the alarm was given a
serious conflagration seemed imminent, as
a big lively stable, in which several hun
dred tons of hay aro stored, stands but a
few feet from tho hotel.
Just as efforts vera being made to fight
the fire the large crowd of people who bad
assembled were horrified to see a man
emerge from one of the lower rooms where
the fire was raging. He did not take time
to raise the window, but pushed himself
through it, taking the sash along. The man
was Stephen M. Hart, and the fire origi
nated in bis room. He was burned from
the abdomen to the crown of his head, and
presented a most sickening sight.
After forcing bis way through tho win
dow he walked across the street, and burned
pieces of flesh fell from him with every step
which be took. Strange to relate, he re
tained consciousness in his horrible con
dition. The upper part of bis body was
literally roasted, and the smell of bis flesh
made many of the spectators sick.
" I will be all right in a little while," said
the unfortunate man, "but for God's sake
give me some water. 1 will do anything
for you, boys, if you only give me a drink
if water. 1 ieel as if 1 bad a fire inside of

hogging for water it was not given him, but

In the meantime the fire was making
great headway and the hotel seemed doomed
to total destruction. But' the Volunteer
Fire Department of the city had turned out
in full numbers and two streams were soon
pi .ring un the crackling dunes. The fire
men seemed to work with an unusual deter
mination and vigor, and in less than half
'an hour all danger of the destruction of the
building was averted.
To relieve Hart of his intense agony
morphine was injected into bis body, but it
was evident that his burns had placed him
beyond all medical aid. Ho was placed in
sin express wagon and taken to the Receiv
ing Hospital iv Oakland. The attendants
at that institution say that they never saw
a more sickening sight, and the contortions
of his face showed how intense his suffer
ings were. J lis lingered until noon, when
death came to his relief. •
Whisky and cigarettes are said to be the
indirect cause of tho man's horrible fate.
He was a painter by trade, 30 years of age,
but of late had been working as a common
laborer. He was engaged Saturday in dig
ging a side-sower trench on Park street for
the new Petersen Building, and when he
received his wages proceeded to indulge in
liquor. At midnight be was seen on the
streets singing and apparently in a very
happy frame id mind. He was addicted to
the use of cigarettes, and it is supposed that
when he went to bed at the Loyal Oak Hotel
he was smirking one. He slept on a straw
mattress, and it is thought uy some that a
lighted cigarette set lire to the mattress.
From the manner in which his body is
burned from the abdomen upward, it is
supposed that he tiled to extinguish the
flames, but in bis stupor, induced by liquor,
be was not able to cope with them, and
when his flesh commenced to roast he leaped
from his bed, jumped through the window
and sought refuge on the streets.
Deceased was a single man and had bsen
a resident of Alameda about a year. He is
a member of the Braids, and the local lodge
has taken charge of the remains and will
give them a decent burial.
A Child 1.. -tubed to a Rapidly Moving
Since the West Side cable system was
placed in operation there have been numer
ous attempts to fathom the secrets of its
rumbling, subterraneous mysteries, says
the Chicago Herald.
To the small boy the operations of the
intermittent cable-cars of Juggernaut have
been a constant puzzle. When the cars
were started the narrow slit between the
center rails - was lined for blocks with
small boys, who dangled empty tomato
cans and almost nil other desirable objects
from strings, while they gleefully watched
them. When the dangling objects were
caught by the endless block, rapidly
moving cable, and whirled heedlessly
along down into the heart of the city, a
general whoop would '. go up along the
entire line. Little "Heiinie" Altenberg,
who has seen but six - summers, lives on
Madison street, along which the subter
ranean cable rumbles. The little fellow
sometime ago left school and became the
recognized leaderof acrowd of companions,
who, like himself, steeled themselves by
studying mining." While gazing at the
cable it suddenly occurred to the precocious
lad that it would be prodigious fun .to
"hitch" himself to the cable and gallop down
town. No sooner had the resolution been
made than the boy sailed forth from his par
ents' residence at 803 West Madison street
with a bed-cord. Fastening one end about
his middle he tied to the other end a bit
of paper and dangled it into the cable
tunnel. Instantly his hopes were realized
and the cord twirled about the . swiftly
moving cable. Then his mad, race began.
Like a yearling colt he galloped along,
pulled by the cable. As the boy dashed
around curves and street corners sight-seers
were awe-stricken at his mad flight. Scores
rushed lor knives to cut the rope which
made the lad a part of the cable system,
but ere they reached him ho had left them
all several laps behind in the awful flight.
On he sailed. Some given to mirth yelled,
"Hey, there, Hennie," while the more
thoughtful asked him if he was hurt. As
block after block was passed in rapid suc
cession a chorus of screams went up, the
high refrain being joined by the lad him
self, who had lost all thought of scientific
Finally Mr. A. E. Allen rushed into the
street with a huge knife, and, after trotting
alongside the lad, succeeded in hacking the
rope in two, allowing the exhausted boy to
fall into his arms. To the inquiries from
scores of people who asked him if he was
hurt be blurted out, "naw," only to be
"pulled" by a blue-coated copper, who,
however, was touched by pity and allowed
the lad to go home. His "dear mamma"
then led him to bed, and, after throwing
aside all the coverlets to allow her ample
leeway, she raised the bed-cord, with which
he had made the thrilling cable trip, and
let fly without mercy. The stillness of the
Sabbath afternoon was broken only by the
"swish" of the cord and the indescribable
wails of the boy who loudly wished he had
been drawn to ' the land of which he
dreamed when pondering over his Sabbath
school lesson. His chastisement came
swift and ignominious and mocked him in
his realization of a new-found glory.
One of the Oldest Houses in tho
City Is Still Intact.
It was Brought Here in 1847 and Success
ively Used as a Postcffice, Meeting
. House and Swelling.
On the eastorn side of Stanford street, a
small thoroughfare running from I'rauuaii
to Townseud street, between Second and
Third, is a queer shaped structure painted
a dark brown color. One half of it is built
with a long sloping roof like that of a barn.
The lower story of the other half is sur
mounted by a two-story frame cottage.
It looks as if the entire structure had
been at one time barn-shaped, and some
one had cut a right angular piece out of the
upper story, and then taken one of the
small buildi! gi in the vicinity from its
foundation ana moved it into tho opening. ;
The lower part of the structuie is used a3
a store-house for scr.,p-iron, second-hand
boilers and tilt; like, but curtains at the
windows of the cottage attachment betray
the fact that it is a habitation for human
Tiro structure was but recently erected.
New lumber was lined iv tin- construction
of tlie bun-shaped part of it, but the cot
tage formerly stood on ISryau", street, be
tween Second nud Third, where it was also
occupied as a dwelling. There might be
nothing strango iv this combination build
ing, especially in a district which abounds
with all sorts of anamolios in the building
line, were it not for. the fact that llie cottage
has a history which but law buildings in tlie
city can boast of. It is in reality one of the
few reiuaiuiiiti. relics of pioneer days — "the
days of '49."
Adjoining tho place lives John Munro, a
Mexican War veteran and a forty-niner.
To a Call reporter yesterday .Miinro re
lated the history of. the cottage.
"That house," said he, "was one of the
first buildings in this city. . It Was brought
out here in 1847, in either the ship Loo
Cisoo or the Susan Drew, I forget which
just now.
"The material in it is Eastern pine, and
I'll wager that, although it Is 43 years oh' '
it is as tough and as stunt as it was then.'
The Government sent it out here in sec
tions, and it probably cost about 515,000.
"' It was erected on Clay street and Bren
am place and given a coating of whim
nut, so that it had quite a fresh-looking
appearand! amid the dingy hills and rough
looking buildings. It was in turn used as
a.posiofflee, town ball and meeting-house.
As a postohiise it saw lively times. Every
time the mails arrived from the Atlantic
States, which was about once a month,
there was great excitement.
"In order that there might be no con
fusion lines were formed from the delivery
windows, at the end of which applicants
for letters fell in as soon as they arrived.
".sometimes men would stand around. all
night in the cold and wind in order to be
among the first at the window. The lines
would extend to Kearny, and south to the
tents at Sacramento street. Often S'-'O would
bo paid by persons arriving late for places
near the bead nt the line. In fact, it was
just .such another scene as we have wit
nessed here in later years during an opera
season, only we old pioneers wore a great
deal more eager to get our letters and pa
pers than any person was to get an opera
"Another interesting feature in connec
tion with the house is that it was the first
polling-place iv the city. There the Con
stitutional election was held. I remember
well being importuned by Senator Uiwu to
vole ln favor of making California a slave
State, because he knew that I was Irom
New Orleans. I did not vote that way,
however. Several public meetings were
held in the house and its walls have re
echoed the eloquence of pioneer speakers.
Sunday services were held in it later, and
during week days a school was maintained
'•Finally as the district around the Plaza
was built up tlie building became neglected
and was rented as a dwelling, 1 think. It
» as the same size as now, consisting of a
lower story and a half second story, the
slanting roof cutting off part of the ceiling.
It had a porch running along in front
which has since been removed.
"Some nuns in the lit ties the house was
sold and removed to soma place in the out
skirts. Since then it lias clianitud hands
live times. It has, been hard finished and
is, dow the property of li. Moore of the His
don I Work s. lie moved it into it.-* present
position .in I gels 3-0 a month from its ten
ants. it has six rooms in it and is yet well
preserved. Altogether 1 guess it lias re
paid its original cost a good many times
Music by n Blind Hoy That ISrought
Tears to mv Kyi •*.
An incident of a peculiarly touching-, char
acter occurred in one of the elevated rail
road trains that brought tears to the eyes
of the passengers. The train bad just loft
One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street when
the passengers saw entering the car a little
boy about G years old, beiug half pushed
and half carried by an older boy, evidently
his brother. At the first glance it was seen
that the little fellow was blind, and hi, eye
lids had almost grown together, lie had a
pale, wait face, but was smiling. A quick
look of sympathy passed over the laces of
the passengers, and an old gray-haired gen
lonian got up and gave his seat to the two.
The "big brother," who was about 11 years
old, tenderly lifted up the little blind boy
and placed him on his knee.
"How's that?" he asked.
"Nice," said the little chap. "Where's
my 'monica?"
This puzzled some of the passengers, and
several turned to see what the child meant.
But the "big brother" Knew, and immedi
ately drew out a small mouth harmonicon
and placed it in the little fellow's hands,
Both boys were well dressed. The little
fellow took the instrument into his thin
hands, ran it across his lips and began to
irlay softly "Nearer, My God, to Thee."
Tears came into the eyes of the old gentle
man who bad given up his seat, and as the
little played on, running into "Hock of
Ages" and "Abide Willi Me." there were
many moist eyes iii the car. The r little
player seemed to have a remarkably true
ear and occasionally, when the instrument
would rasp, he would turn sadly to his '"big
brother" and say, "Don't whistle."
The train rushed along, the passengers
listened and the little lellow played on tire
lessly, never missing a note from "Annie
Laurie" or "Home, Sweet Home." Finally
the "big brother" leaned down and told the
little one to get ready to leave, as the train
was approaching the station. Then, as if
he knew he had won a whole car-load of
friends, the blind boy quickly changed
"The Suwanee Hivei'' into "Auld Lang
Syne," and with one accord the passengers
burst into a round of applause, while the
"big brother" carried the tittle one out of
the car.— X. Y. Times.

The Fond-Coleman Fight in Los An
geles—White's Campaign.
Walter S. Moore of Los Angeles, who is
In the city in the interests of Colonel Mark
ham, insists that the vote of Los Angeles
County will be given to Coleman in the con
vention at San Jose. He urges that the
claims. which are being made by tbe ad
herents of Pond in that county are unwar
ranted by facts and that the resalt of the
first ballot will show the truth of this.
While this may be the sentiment of tho
politicians it is evidently not tbat of the
voters at large, as is shown by a letter of
recent date from a Democrat to the editor
of the Los Angeles Herald. He says:
1 hare personally Interviewed Ma Democrats
In this city since .Monday as in their preferences
tor Governor and 1 nave louuii the following re
sult: I*uud3S7. Coleman 126, Kiigilsli 18, Berry
0, Del Valle C, White 4, the nominee 18.
This would seem to be proof conclusive
that "Buckley's young man" is not such a
universal favorite with the people of the
south as his subsidized followers would
make out. It looks just now, in fact, as if
Coleman would have to depend for his
strength largely upon tbe efforts of his
friend Buckley, who Is understood to have
promised him the greater part of tho San
Francisco delegation on the opening ballots.
This would give bim a certain show of
strength, but would, also, it is safe to as
sume, solidify the country delegations
against him,' because of tbe opposition to
anything that savors of Buckley ism.
A prominent Democrat, in discussing the
situation yesterday, said: "I am in a posi
tion to ascertain the sentiment of the coun
try on this question, and I can say posi
tively that Fond is the general favorite. In
the last three weeks 1 have interviewed
prominent men, merchants and lawyers as
well as politicians, from as many as half of
the counties of the State, and In nearly
every instance I have found thsit Fond was
the strongest man. The almost universal
reply to my interrogations would be:
'Well, you understand, of course, that we
have a local candidate, but Bond is our sec
ond choice.' By this lam convinced that
he is by long odds the favorite, and I regard
his nomination as a foregone conclusion."
The N m'S. Mad a Favorite for Ueu
t an '-Governor. ... -* ;-
Ex-Senator Jordan of Alameda, now that
he has been knocked out in his own county,
may be regarded as out of the race for the
Republican nomination for Lieutenant-
Governor, and Frank L. Coombs of Napa is
to the front as the most formidable candi
date for that place. The south has no
aspirant so far as known, and it is reason
ably certain that such men as Chipuian,
Morrow, Batterson, Sliippee and Jlarkhaui
would not accept second place. Coombs
looks, therefore, like a winner, and the
Markhsun men, if they succeed in placing
their man at the head of the ticket, will go
to him iv a body. Jordan, however, it Is
claimed, was never in it, and Alameda will
probably bo satisfied with the nomination
of Wsiite for Secretary of State. It is be
lieved that he will havo a walk over in the
contest, and it is predicted that he would
run ahead of his ticket, because of the feel
ing which was excited in His favor by the
action of tiie President in withdrawing his
nomination for Appraiser through the in
fluence of Judge Field.
A Prominent Democrat Think-) It Is nn
Unwise One.
Senator Tell of Mendocino says that the
Democrats of Northern California will re
sent most emphatically any attempt on the
part of the adherents ot Stephen M. White
to secure for the latter the indorsement of
the State Convention for United States
Senator, and that if such an effort is made
it will convert this convention into a small
sized circus.
"We have no objection to Mr. White,"
added the Senator, "and I am personally
bis friend, but it will be the one mistake of:
bis life if he allows such a thing to be un
dertaken. There is no lack of Senatorial
timber in the Democratic party, and for one
man to attempt to force himself on the
party is a little more than the members of
It will- tolerate. Besides no one would be
bound by the indorsement, and members of
the Legislature would still be free to vote
as they pleased. If Mr. White is wise he
will call a halt and abandon bis present
Krnnck for State Treasurer.
The sentiment of the Republicans is fast
becoming centered on certain men for the
various places on the State ticket, and the
name of F. C. Franck of Santa Clara is
more often heard than any other in con
nection with the nomination for State
Treasurer. There are some doubts as to
his willingness to accept, but there seems
to be little question of his being the nomi
nee if he desires it. lie is a strong man all
over the State, and it is claimed that his
services to the party in the past are of such
a nature as to give him a powerful claim to
recognition. lie is a wealthy, shrewd busi
ness man. and a power in the politics ot
Santa Clara County. The south is solid for
him, and a large part of the delegation
from San Francisco as well as tho northern
counties would be at his command.
Roddick and A ji.l. r.'ii.
The San Francisco Republicans will
probably ask for the nomination of W. J.
Roddick for Clerk of the Supremo Court,
aud J. W. Anderson for State Superintend
ent of Public Instruction. Both are strong
men, and tbe indications are that both
will bo nominated. The two weeks re
maining until the convention meets
may alter the aspect of affairs, but the gen-,
tlemen referred to are nt the present time
undoubtedly far in the lead of all com
petitors. 9u-fi
Denied by trkhvim'a Friends.
The Los Angeles men deny tbat Colonel
Mark ham was, as charged, the author of
the bill appropriating ssj.*iu,ixx) for the pur
pose of prosecuting the hydraulic miners,
but claim, on the contrary, that it was
framed and introduced by Congressman
McKenna. They assert that this is shown
by the record and that the latter gentleman
proudly lays claim to the honor. Colonel
Markhsim's only connection with it, they
say, was as a member of an advisory com
mittee, which agreed to its introduction.

What She Drink* and Why the Court l'hy-
gician Kecoiuiucnderl It.
Tho London World has been making an Investiga-
tion of what the Queen drink] and has ascertained
deflnately that, upon the advice of Sir William Jen-
tier, she drinks win sky diluted In water. i Ins Is
for the purpose of retaining her vigor, renewing
her strength arid prolonging her life. The whisky
which she drinks 1; obtained from the distillery on
her own Balmoral estate, and of course Is perfectly
pure. Thus the World offers a valuable suggestion
ln this fact: England's sovereign drinks whisky
undor the recommendation of tbe court physician
and on account of Its medicinal properties, and slio
drinks It absolutely pare, having It distilled upon
ber own estate. These facts prove two things:
First, that all modern medical science demonstrates
the superior value of whisky for sustaining the
health and prolonging the life and second, that It
must be absolutely pure. Tbe leading American
physicians and chemists bave indorsed these views
constantly and emphasized tbe necessity or having
whisky that Is absolutely pure. Tbo best medical
and chemical talent In America has shown conclu-
sively that no whisky known In tho market Is so
pure as Daffy's Malt. It is wholly free from fusil,
oil, it Is unlike all oilier so-called whiskies and it Is
doing grout things for tbe health of the community. I
So true is this, that while marry temperance people
denounce whiskies and liquors in general, they ac-
knowledge rue superior merit of Duffy's Malt, and *
use It medicinally continually. Great care should )
be exercised, however, to secure no other, no mat-
ter bow bard a dealer may seek to sell you something -
