Corcoran and Fitzgerald Ad
mitted to Bail.
One Denies That He Started the Shooting.
The Oiher'a Identity Hot Fully Proven.
Chief Crowley's Views.
The old City Hall, or at least that portion
of It occupied by the Police Department, re
sembled tl.e headquarters of a standing
army all day yesterday. Chief Crowley is
fully alive to the importance of keeping a
large force of his men ready for immediate
call, and all day king had from thirty to
sixty, iv reserve, ready to jump into line at
the first sound of alarm. lie also ordered
thirty men, under Sergeants Whitman and
Uirdsell, transferred early in the day to
Captain Short's watch at the Southern Sta
tion, and these men were distributed liber
ally arcund tlie district where there have
been disturbances recently.
"If necessary," said the Chief, "I will
send evcrj r cflicer in this division down
there, and we'll see what cau be done to
stop this murderous work. I'm satisfied
6ome.of the people are netting desperate,"
he continued, " but il they will keep on dis
regarding the law, they shall liud lhat it
costs something."
Uost of the interest vtsterday centered
on James Corcoran, the Deputy ISlieiiff,
who was mixed up in the sliootiug affray
near the National Foundry. Corcoran
deuies positively that he was the lirst tv
shout, or that he went into that district
with any purpose to mix up in the molders'
fight, lie says he was on his way to the
ferry, and when near the place where the
shooting occurred met a friend. Together
they went into a saloou to driuk, and as
v ej .aiiie out somebody fired at them from
the foundry. He returned the fire, and
when the police came on the scene he
started to run. The policemen fned at him
ai.d lie fired back ; that is vow the whole
trouble came about.
\\ lieu lie was taken to the City Prison
three charges were made agaiust ii tin, one
each by Smith, Can aud W. A. Dawes, the
Hrre^ting policemen, and N. C. Brown of
the National Iron Works.
I'esteiuay morning when his case came
up in court for pieiiwinary examination
J. J. Kiley, auotiiei officer who had a bout
witli bim daring the fracas, said he could
also make a serious charge, as he was a
participant in the whole affair. Chief
Crowley thought so many charges might
appear like persecution, but finally allowed
Kiley tv swear out a complaint. So now
there are lour charges against the deputy,
all tor assault with intent to murder.
When Judge Juachiniseii heard the ca?e
he decided to Bz Cercoran's bail at Simxi fur
each offense, aud at 3 o'clock Clarence Gray,
his attorney, -bad furnished the bondsmen
and received an order lor the prisoner's
release. 'J lie bondsmen are James (jillerau
and Jeremiah Maluney.
In eoiinec'ioii with the man who was ar
lested by Sergeant Tobin night before last,
nnd Rave his name as McLeod, there is
bouiellung uf a mystery. By the lime he
got to the Southern l'olice Station under
escort of two uolieemeu his name had
ci; aimed to William Fitzgerald, :>nd under
that tiHine he was registered, yesterday
his attorney, George H. Perry, appeared in
court when the case was called and secured
his release uljou the deposit oi §25u cash
While Fitzgerald was being searched at the
station on the previous night a card of the
Curtiu Detective Agency was found on his
persou, and he was asked what it meant,
lie suid ha was in the employ of that esUb
liEhruent. Afterward he said ia a garrulous
n.atiut r that he was a striking uiolder, and
really no one was able to judge who he. was
or what business he had down unions the
iron foundries armed with a pistol, lie re
fused to answer questions directly and would
cive no oue any satisfactioc as to his iden
tity or business.
'i'o-day, finding that George H. Perry
was his lawyer, a Call reporter called on
that gentleman to learn the truth. Air.
Perry's office is in the same room with tiie
'Curtin Detective Agency, which rather
strengthens the statement nf Fitzgerald
that he was connected with that establish-
Mr. Perry stated tliat he was engaged by
Fiiigt'ia! i'» employers to look after the
case, 'out that he had been specially re
quested by iliem to refrain from making any
statement whatever in connection with the
case, or even teliiug who his employers
w ere.
"1 can say this much, however," said Mr.
Perry, "Fitzgerald was down in that lo
cality on a perfec-tly lawful mission, and he
is nut a striking nulder."
The only inference i>, from this state oi
the case, that Fitzgerald, if such be his real
Bame, was dowu there as a Curtin detec
tive; that the detective-like waj he had of
moving about was mistaken by the police
for a striking milder movement, aud since
he was in the immediate neighborhood of
the shooting and outbreaks the suspicion ot
his being one of them rested upon him. Of
coarse, like all detectives he was armed
with a pistol, and when arrested tlie fact
weighed heavily against him without his
errand being known. It was intimated by
the attorney that there would be mo diffi
culty in clearing up the case. It will come
up c'n Thursday iv Police Courts.
'The preliminary examination of Walter
Kidenut, Sicbert's slayer, was continued by
Judge Lawler yesterday until Thursday.
The Deadly Centtpede of Texas— A Va
querb's Frightful Fate.
Texas is proverbial for the number and
venom of its "j'izen critters." Every
shrub is reputed to bear a thorn and every
insect armed with a sting, and both poison
to a greater or lesser extent. While this is
not literally true, the tarantula, centipede,
rattlesnake, adder, moccasin, mosquitos,
■ bees, etc., as well as the mesquite, mimosa,
cat-claw and cactus of the chaparral, make it
very interesting for a tenderfoot fresh from
the effete East. There is very little sleep
for him by the chaparral camp-fire after he
has listened a few hours to the hair-brist
ling stories of deaths, Instant and inevit
able, from biles of tarantula:, centipedes
and rattlers.
A frontier stockman related the follow
ing instance of a centipede's sting which
came under his personal observation.
One night in the 7o's, he, with a party of
cowboys, was encamped on the bank of the
Ntuces, in Atascosa County, Tex., and after
sum or they wen) sitting around the camp
fire enjoying their pipes and cigarettes. A
Mexican "vaquero" had withdrawn his
boots, and his trousers drawn up around
bis knees left his leys bare. Suddenly a
look of horror in his face attracted the at
• tuition of all, and following his eyes they
' saw an enormous centipede, perhaps twelve
inches in length, leisurely creeping over his
unprotected limb. His swarthy face was
livid with terror and his fingers writhed in
nervous suspense. Every man was breath
less in silence, all realizing that any attempt
to brush the monster insect away would be
dangerous, as the chances were that he
' would imprint every one of his numerous
stings before he could be dislodged. The only
chance seemed to be to leave him undis
turbed until he was Inclined peacefully to
go away of his own accord. In vain; he
drew his full length diagonally across the
exposed limb and stopped, seemingly con
tent to bask in the fire-light. All waited in
terrified suspense; seconds grew into min
utes and seemed hours, until at last a
though struck the Mexican. He cautiously
drew a revolver from the bolster near his
side, and placing Its muzzle against bis leg,
pointing it so that the bullet would take
away the insect without touching the limb,
he fired, and with a yell of relief bounded
-to his feet. But all In vain; not even the
bullet was quick enough. A red track
swelled where the venomous insect had
lain, and the unfortunate cowboy was a
corpse within two hour*. Nor was thai all.
The bullet struck a pack-male in the hoof,
and the poison it carried from the insect
killed the animal also. — Detroit Pree Press.

Early yesterday morning a young mnn
Darned Frank Coons, residing at 700 Nato
rua street, died from a dose of choral hy
drate, while being taken by Policemen Ennis
and llarrigan to the lteceiving Hospital.

time, and it Li supposed that he took the

though whether from suicidal intent or not
cannot be said.
Alcoholism nncl lirlglit'a I>l«r»«e.
A Freueh barber, named J. Bernier. was
found dead in his room at the Lindell House,
corner of .Sixth and Howard streets, yester

-Jbright'g disease.
Enjoy, d lit; i ne mi American.
An individual, named James Kite, quite
well dressed, but UDdar the iufluence of
liquor, was put under arrest by Policeman
Furlong yesterday, and accused of carrying
a weapon concealed, lie was hanging
around the old City Hall and doing more
loud talking than a good temperate citizen
should. He said he enjoyed being an Amer
ican hugely, because citizens had their free
dom here, no matter what they thought.
The weapon he carried was a loaded club.
More Eumors Concerning the
Sanla Fe's Extension.
The air In the railroad world Is heavy
with rumors concerning the Santa Fe's
extension. Close upon the announcement
that this company had engaged ten offices
on Market street comes the cold fact that a
Chinese contractor, for many years in the
employ of the above-mentioned company,
was yesterday engaging the services of
several hundred Chinese for pick and
shovel work, though to what particular
point these laborers were to be shipped the
wily heathens pretended to be totally ig
norant of. It Is known that surveyors are
actively engaged on Tejou Pass aud are
working toward San Francisco. The pur
chase of 3000 acres of land at Baden, San
Mateo County, by Armour & Co., tha
Chicago pork-packers, for which was paid
§770,(XK>, is also looked upon as one of the
surest indications that tlie Sauta Fe people
mean business.
Mr. Williamson of the Santa Fe made an
inspection of the California and Nevada
Narrow-gauge l'.ailroad on Sunday, guiug
as fur as K. E. Rowland's ranch and or
chard. It is stated that it is the intention
of tlie California and Nevada to build a ier
ry from Emeryville to ban Francisco, and
articles of incorporation have been drafted
for that purpose, but it is not yet certain
that the incorporation will be perfected.
What Williamson's mission over the road
was, is merely conjecture. It is supposed
that he inspected it in the interest of his
line, with a view o£ coming into Oakland
by it.
The Coast Railway Convention will re
assemble on Saturday next, at San Jose, to
consider the subject of striking out the time
limitation named iv the resolutions adopted
at the first meeting ol the convention. This
seems to be the only modification desired
by the Southern Pacific Company, and given
a few months longer than ttie time at first
proposed, it would, in all probability, close
the yap without further coaxiug and ac
cording to agreement.

In the case of John White, ex-business
manager of The Call, charged with em
bezzlement, C. M. Darwin, attorney for the
accused, appeared in Judge Murphy's de

but were beiug formulated or the jury
being impaneled, lie then renewed bis

The Judge, however, added that he would

Some time ago a man named Aletz bought
a ticket at Kansas City for California, and
after checking his trunk there boarded the
train. Upon his arrival at Caton, Cal., he
discovered that his trunk had gone astray.
He waited a reasonable time for the rail
road company to produce the trunk, and
failing to do so he put in a claim for $350
damages. ■
Over 8200 of this amount was for jewelry
for female wear, and the railroad ! claimed
It was not bound to pay for it, inasmuch:
as it was not Ills personal baggage. Metz
brought suit in the Los Angeles County
Court and recovered judgment for the full
amount ana the railroad company appealed.
The Supreme Court, in deciding the case
yesterday, said that the railroad company
is obliged to pay only > for : the luggage of
the claimant, . and luggage | meant in law
only such things as the claimant needed for
personal use on his travels. Had Met/,
been traveling with his . wife there ; would
be no question as to the railroad company's
liability. - ,:.:.: .-.. ;. : «.*-..
: : But Melz was a single man and traveling
alone. The articles of female jewelry in
his trunk could not, therefore, be 'regarded
as luggage, and the railroad company need
not pay for them. The - Court ordered the
judgment reduced by the amount of the
jewelry. ■ . '..•■ r

As to Transfer!.
Editor Call : On the way to my domicile
this afternoon I took tho Third instead of
the Fourth street car, which would have
lauded me at my door, because I desired to
attend to some business at the Palace Hotel.
I was detained about half an hour. When
I handed my transfer to the conductor on
tbe Post-street car he told me my time had
ruu out, but that I co uld pay and seek re
dress at tlie office for my 5 cents. I replied
that he "could put me off by force," which
he declined to do. My object is to inquire
through your paper for the benelit of
the public if street-car lines have a legal
right to repudiate their transfers unless the
passenger steps from one car to another.
Are corporations that obtain valuable fran
chises under no obligations to the public
or can they make their own laws aud ignore
these transfers if they please? By giving
this publication perhaps other citizens may
escape the mortilicutiuu to which the writer
was subjected. c. v- s.
Native Snilors. -:.'.
Editor Call ; I noticed in your paper of
July 27U) an article headed "> T o Native
Sailors." You say, "it is not easy, to de
vise a cure for the evil." Let me offer one.
Adopt free trade as England did, and we
can have all the sailors we want, as they
would be glad to earn enough to eat, and
the sixty odd million of the balance could
experience the sweating process to support
the navy and army, ana then wo would
have plenty of sailors. That is what we
had before 1800 or when our free-trade
Democratic brothers rnled. Protection all
the time, and divert some of the same to
subsidies and fortifications, and we will get
the men when wanted. A BUBSCBIBE&

ilm the Aztecs Ulnposed of Gold aud
Silver in Cnrtoz'B Time.
The far Southwest can truthfully be
called the Eldorado of treasure-hunters.
binco tl.« daj .-. of Montezuma from time to
time valuable articles of gold and silver
have been unearthed from hidden recesses,
from caves and wells, from the walls of
churches and old adube buildings, where
they were plugged in concealment centuries
ago; even at the bottom of small lakes ami
lagoons, where they were sunk to prevent
the Spaniards from securing them. It is a
well-known fact now that at the time of the
Spanish conquest them were numerous rich
mines of gold and silver in successful opera
tion all over Mexico. The Aztec dominion
then extended beyond the Kio Grande, and
when the news came that the white in*
vaders were desecrating temples, tearing
down churches and had even imprisoned
their beloved monarch in order to obtain
gold, tliH cautious natives, alliiough far
away from the scene of rapine and demo
lition, yet hurriedly concealed their valu
ables and closed up their mines to pre
vent the Spaniards from reaping any bene
iit therefrom.
The vast treasures of wealth in Mexico
at the time Cortez lauded far exceeded the
combined poscsssions of European mon
arch*. He fouud the heathen temples loaded
with jewels, aud the persons aud homes of
the nobility wore decorated in a iminnnr
that no white man had ever conceived of.
They had skillful metal-workers, who fash
ioned the most delicate tliiugs m gold aud
silver, aud upon their altar." wero vessels of
gold and silver, solid and pure, that dazzled
the rough ryes of the Spaniards unused to
such gorgeous display and lavish waste, and
caused the downfall of an empire wiiich, in
this particular, has never been equaled in
history. Mexican onyx was as common as
glass, but tbo mine from which this precious
stone was obtained in such lavish quantities
is now lost aud forgotten.
In less than a year after the Spanish con
quest the Aztec mines all over the empire,
in old Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico aud
Texas, were closed up and abandoned.
They were pouring forth great wealth at the
time, but the natives foresaw their doom
aud that tho Spanish appetite for such
things could never be satisfied, so they
accepted the situaliou, concealed their treas
ures and tilled up tho shafts with rock and
clay.— Cleveland Leader.

Collector Phelps Wants No More
Chinese Tricks.
A Very Secret Meeting in Judge Hoffman's
Chamber! and What It Was All About.
The Habea* Corpus Mill.
At about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Collector of the Port Phelp3 was seen to
enter the private office of United States
District Attorney Carey. He had a formid
able bundle of boots and papers under his
arm, and bis face was set with a look of
firm determination. Those who are iv the
habit of seeing the Collector as he went
about his business knew by that look that
he had something of great importance upon
his mind and that he meant business from
the word "go."
The Collector tarried in the District At
torney's office but a short time, and pres
ently came cut again, his face set, if possi
ble, with a liruiisr look than when he went
iv. Closely following at his heels was Dis
trict Attorney Carey, and it was observed
that his face was also very thoughtful. The
two went along the corridor, turned the
corner, and disappeared iv Judge Hoffman's
The Collector of the Port had gone to
make a vigorous protest at the way the
Chinese habeas corpus cases are handled
by the judicial end of the Federal machine.
What trauspired in that meetine will prob
ably never be known; but it is safe to pre
sume that Collector Phelps laid down the
law to his two associates.
There was probably cause to arouse his
ire. The screaming little farce of a Judicial
proceeding in habeas corpus cases that has
been enacted between the United Slates
District Court Clerk's office and Commis
sioner McAllister has long been a source of
suppressed comment among the Federal
officials connected with the Treasury in
stead of the judicial arm of Uucle Sam's
service in this city, and it is an open secret
that these two cilices encourage the habeas
corpus mill to the best of their ability,
It pays them to encourage it. For every
Chinese habeas corj us case the District
Court Clerk receives $14, the United States
Marshal £3 and Commissioner McAllister
the neat little sum of S3 per case, with an
additional charge of $10 per day lor every
day that he i.-: engaged on these cases. Alt
these fees come out of the Chinamen w ho
seek to laud, aud are paid by tneni or the
slave-dealer who owns them.
Every Chinaman who seeks to land has to
piy his fare from China, hie lawyer's fees
here, and besides, over $30 in each aud
every case to the District Court Clerk's of
fice aud Cominissiouer McAllister. If the
habeas corpus mill did not grind exceed
ingly tine in favor of the Chinamen, thoy
would soon grow tired of paying these big
OVEIS $200,000 IN BONDS.
There are vow on the books of the Dis
trict Court Clerk uver £2UO,(XX) i n Chinese
bonds iv habeas corpus cases. They are,
many of them, probably, of the very flim
siest of the straw variety, and every China
man for whom these bonds were given is
now at large in Uncle bain's dominions,
calmly grinning at the simplicity uf hia
It is said that Collector Phelps has re
peatedly sat up until fur in the nioruing
prior to the sailing of a China steamer, ex
aming the bonds offered iv these habeas
corpus proceedings, and although he fre
quently demonstrated to tlie officials on the
other side of the alley that many of the
sureties were not good, yet his objections
have often heeu calmly waived aside. It is
supposed that the question of bonds was
oue of the matters which he brought up at
yesterday's meeting,
Another matter that is supposed to rankle
in the breast of the Collector is the way in
w inch the. evidence which he has been at
great pains to provide has been treated by
the officials who try the ca<es. It is said by
some who should know that after the Col
lector hud burned the midnight oil to dis
cover weak points in the Chinese evidence,
his view of the cases would be calmly
ignored and the Chinaman allowed to go
Teasing the Cause of Young Charles
lliomiiloii'i Denth.
Saturday last, says the New York Times,
Charles F. Thompson, 17 years old, residing
at 2120 Master street, l'hiladelphia, died, it
is said, from injuries inflicted the Kith of
July by his fourteen-year-old brother,
Daniel C. Thompson. The atTair has been
kept very quiet, and the story of the way
in which the boy received his injuries
only came out to-day when the ntteuding
physician reported his death to the Coroner.
The day on which Charles received the
wound that subsequently proved fatal to
him the two brothers aud another boy were
at the supper table at their home. Charles
began to tease his younger brother about
some trivial matter aud Daniel grew very
angry. The angrier he grew the more
Charles continurd to tease him, until
finally the younger boy threw his fork at
his brother. Tne fork was thrown with
considerable force, and striking Charles in
tbe thigh, penetrated the Hush deep enough
to rem.cin sticking in the wound. A phy
sician was culled in, who pronounced the
wound a trivial one, and the next day the
boy went to work as usual.
Fur two days after receiving tbe injury
Charles complained that the wound was
very Bore, aud Saturday it became so pain
ful that he was forced to go to bed. From
that time until the following Saturday the
boy continued to grow worse and Dually he
died. It is alleged that Ms death was due
to blood poisoning resulting from the fork
stab. Tne Coroner will hold an inquest to
The Administratrix'- Suit to Set Aside
An ASKlcnuient.
The case of M. A. Wiekham, administra
trix of the late D. C. Wickham, vs. M. A.
Graham will be called for trial to-day in
Judge Lawler's department. The com
-I)l,ii»t sets forth that Wickham died intes
tate in this city on May 12, 18SS, and that
in June, 188% she was appointed adminis
tratrix of the estate by an order of the
Superior Court. For a long time previous
to his death, Wickham was insane, and
while so mentally incapacitated from doing
business lie was induced, as alleged, to ex.
ecuto and deliver an assignment of all his
property and assets of every kind to the
defendant Tho prayer is for annulment of
said assignment, an accounting of the prop
erty and an oiler of injunction against dis
posing of any portion of the estate pending
trial of the case.

week was a prominent ph>stclan of the Western Ad-

Vegetable Sarsaparilla caused Inquiry, as it was un-
usual. He said he was buying It for his family. That
It was more effective than the same prescription If
compounded by a city druggist for the reason that
the druggist would employ the common commercial
extracts which are often feeble with age, while Joy's
Vegetable Sarsaparilla, being made In quantities. Is
percolated, direct from the original herbs.*; Thus It
