The Naval Board Indorse
the Monterey.
After Careful Investigation the De
fense Ship "Is Declared Up to
Contract Requirements.
Special to The Mousing Call.
Vallejo. June I.— The trial of the
Monterey is at an end and she now
patiently awaits returns from Washington.
Early this morning Captain Howison con
vened the board of naval inspectors on
board the Monterey for the purpose of
making a final inspection of her machin
ery, turrets and boilers. The inspeciion
lasted the greater portion of the day. much
time being devoted to the boilers. A
thorough inspection and tests of both the
Scotch and Ward boilers resulted in find
ing neither leak, bulge nor strain. After
having registered over 190 pounds pressure
to the inch not the least minute fault was
discovered, although no restriction had
been placed on th-^m during the trip. Ex
pert boiler-makers assisted in examining
the boilers, who pronounced them sound
in every particular.
The same exact Inspection was made of
the auxiliary machinery, every part of
which was found in excellent condition.
Considerable time was spent in making an
examination of the turrets, but here, like
other parts inspected, all was found satis
factory. The board in making their re
port have pronounced the Monterey to be
all that the contract required.
lv their report they have made some
minor suggestions, however, which, it ap
proved and executed, will result advan
tageously. These suggested alterations
apply only to the mechanism of the tur
rets and ammunition hoists. The board
concluded their labors late this afternoon
and signed their report, which is now en
route to Washington. Each member of
the board was seen by an Associated
Press correspondent as they finished their
duties, and when asked the purport of
their report, said the Monterey is all right
and second to none of her class.
F. A. Fame, who had his left hand man
gled by removing a wedged shell from the
10-inch gun during the trial trip, has had
two fingers amputated.
The debris caused by tne collision with
the ferry-boat Ellen has been removed,
and the board convened to estimate the
damage sustained.
The Monterey will remain at the navy
yard till her acceptance is promulgated
from Washington, when she will be
ordered to San Francisco for permanent
Washington, June l.— Secretary Her
bert to-day in conversation with The
Call correspondent expressed great
satisfaction with the performance of the
Monterey. . ..;,:■;.:■
Rather Singular Dispatches Received
by the Department.
New Yokk, June I.— The Times Wash
ington special says: Trouble may grow
out of a telegram which was received to
day at the Navy Department from Chief j
Engineer JoseDh Trilley of the United j
States ship Monterey, on completion of
the last official trial trip of the Monterey. !
Yesterday he sent this dispatch from Mare j
Island: "Machinery works very well. No
matter on the journals. No leaks in the i
boilers. Continually in operation sixty- \
five hours. Power not as high as expected, j
due to inferior coal. Speed nearly thir- j
teen knots."
Trilley's telegram was followed by an
other from Captain Howison, president of
the trial board on the Monterey. The lat
ter officer reports that the dispatch from
Chief Engineer Trilley docs not have the
approval of the board.
There is no contradiction of the state
ments contained in Trilley's dispatch, and
co one can explain why Captain Howison
should imply a discredit of the engineer's
dispatch. The department may ask for an
additional statement from Howison.
The Monterey was made the subject of
further departmental consideration to-day
by the receipt, just before the hour for
closing, of a telegram reporting that the
Monterey had been in collision with a
ferry-boat, demolishing the rudder of the
latter craft and doing damage to herself to
the extent of 8500.
Absence of Orders Resulted in the
Death of a Passenger.
Los Angeles, June I.— -Coroner Gates
held an inquest on the body of George R.
Shatto, killed , In the wreck at Ravenna
last night. Michael Graham, conductor of
train 43, P.J. Smith, brakeman of train
23, and the engineers and trainmen or
both trains testified. The following ver
dict was rendered: The dea'.h was by
reason of a collision of an extra train anil
a regular train on the Southern Pacific
Railroad, the former following the latter,
and the regular train being late. The ab
sence of orders to the extra notifying them
of this fact was the cause of the accident.
News of her husband's death was broken
to Mrs. Shatto tins morning by the Rev.
Dr. Campbell. She gave a pitiable scream
when the heard the news and fainted. She
has been in a semi-unconscious condition
all day and under the care of a physician.
Railroad officials profess ignorance of
any of the facts in the case and say that
they know nothing because the accident
occurred on another division. Both of the
injured men are very badly off. All were
present at tbe Inquest.
Sensational Developments Expected
in a Justice's Court.
San Jose, June I.— Joe Armor, a noto
rious hanger-on around the Police Court
in this city is being prosecuted on a va
grancy charge, the San Jose Township
Justice being the complainant. Armor
has the reputation of being a capper for
Police Court lawyers, and his friends are
backing him in a vigorous defense. To
day they openly threatened to commence
impeachment proceedings against Town
ship Justice King for alleged immoral and
dissipated habits in this city and Oakland.
Sensational developments are expected.
An Old Lady Makes Serious Charges
Against Her Husband.
San Jose, June I.— Frank Ryder, the
young man who married an aged divorced
woman in this city, was to-day complained
against by her for extreme cruelty. She
says lie pulled her around the house by
the hair, and by kicking her inflicted
serious internal injury. Air?. Ryder's re
cent divorce from A. N. Story, a wealthy
rancher, was attended with sensational
features. In the settlement sho. was
awarded 800 acres of valuable land near
this city.' Her marriage to the young mau
proves even more unhappy. She is sus
pected of insanity.
Arranging for Sending Supplies to the
World's Fair.
Sacramento, Jun« l.— W. tf. Daly,
assistant traffic manager for the California
World's Fair Commission, was in the city
to-day on business relating to the matter
of continued shipments of fruit to the
World's Fair 'luting the summer. Mr.
Daly's mission was for the purpose of ar
ranging with the California Fruit Trans
portation Company to receive and forward
with dispatch the several shipments, all
consigned to a representative of the State
commission, who will receive and distribute
promptly the several small shipments
among the county managers of the fair.
The proposition is to have these ship
ments centralized at Sacramento, and from
here forwarded in cars billed directly for
the fair grounds, thus avoiding the delay
of transferring at Chicago and hauling by
trucks seven miles to the fair grounds.
This arrangement has been practically
completed, and in a few days the State
commissioners will have ready for distri
bution among the fruit-growers and county
associations circulars fully explaining the
The Old Miner Drew on the Wrong
Man. Sfß
Needles, June I.— Pat Balpin, an old
miner, was shot twice by Deputy Sheriff
Keyes yesterday afternoon. One ball
passed through the left breast, the other
through his bowels, striking the face of
his watch in his hip pocket. Halpln died
last night at 9:30 o'clock.
Halpin had just received some money
from ore sold from his mines in Arizona
j and had been drinking and gambling for
I several days past. He and a railroad man
named Templeton had a few angry words.
when Halpin rushed off, returning soon,
I looking for his man, Templeton, whom Ue
J saw sitting in front of a jewelry-store in
i company with another railroad man
named Jim Dugan. Pulling his gun down
on Templeton he commenced firing. Tent
pleton ran through the store and back
yard, over fences and out of sight, without
a scratch, Halpin blazing away as he ran.
< Dugan received a wound in the shoulder,
but it was not serious.
Ilalpin ran around the corner after Tem
pleton and stop; ed to reload his gun,
when Sheriff Keyes came out and called on
him to stop and throw up his hands,
when he pulled his gun down on Keves.
Keyes fired two shots, both taking effect ,
with results as above described.
Further Disclosures in the Outrage
on Marks.
San Diego, June I.— Mrs. Edgar B.
Vincent was to-day held in SSOO to answer
the charge of assault with a deadly weapon
on Robert Marks, a Coronado man, who
had his eyes nearly gouged out on Friday
night by throe women, while held by Vin
cent, his landlord.
Disclosures during the preliminary ex
amination have been such that George
Auerback, the husband of one of the
woman participating in the attack, has filed
a complaint asking divorce on the ground
of adultery. The hearing of Mrs. Auer
beck and tie girl who was the cause of the
assault on Marks will be completed to
morrow. Marks is able to attend the ex
amination, but is still suffering severely
from the wounds in his eyes and tongue.
I The Bering Sea Patrol Short of
Vallejo, June Naval advices from
Port Townsend report the Bering Sea
j patrol fleet having gone north several days
ago. The various shins of the ffeet are re
ported to be short-handed anil badly in
need of seamen, the scarcity of which will
greatly hamper the commanding officers in
the execution of the orders and in the man
ning of captured sealers. Captain Ludlow,
who commands the Bering Sea fleet, has
made a requisition to the Secretary of the
Navy, requesting ships of his squadron to
be supplied with necessary seamen at the
earliest opportunity. There being no avail
able recruits at the Mare Island naval ren
dezvous, it is more than probable that a
draft of men will be sent by rail to Port
Townsend from the New York rendezvous.
Sequel to a Doubly Disgraceful Quar-
rel at San Jose.
San Jose, June l.— A special adminis
trator was to-day appointed in the person
of Mrs. S. Knapp, a sister of the deceased
capitalist. Christian Freyschlag. Imme
diately suit was begun against W. J. Peall
to recover $3000 on promissory notes, and
520,000 alleged to have been secured by
him and others from the deceased.
Peail claims that ho has a last will of
Freyschlag, and he was to-day ordered to
produce it in court. The parties had a
fi_;ht recently in which a shotgun was
used over the dead body of the capitalist.
He died worth 8200,000. Peall is alleged
by the relatives to have exerted a hypnotic
influence over him. The fight was over
the possession of valuable papers.
Warren Wilson Denies That He Is
Interested in It.
San Diego, June I.— Warren Wilson
authorizes an emphatic denial of the state
ment telegraphed from here that he is
connected with a scheme to get a conces
sion from thn Mexican Government for a
lottery at Ensenada, Lower California.
He promptly declined to have anything to
do with it. The only project he now has
in hand is to establish a morning paper at
Los Angeles next fall, and he will remove
his family to that city next week. The
promoter of the lottery enterprise is said
to be Mrs. Mary A. Burton, now in the
City of Mexico, but ber son here says it
has been given up.
Mistaking . Aconite for Whisky a
Youth Drinks It and Dies.
Fp.esxo, June I.— At the Coroner's in
quest held on the body of young Vita,
who died here yesterday, it was developed
that the victim accidentally drauk tincture
of aconite. The poison was in a whisky
bottle at the accustomed place of the fam
ily dram bottle. His parents started im
mediately for this city for medical aid, but
were too late and the unfortunate victim
dropped unconscious at Dr. well's door
and expired a few minute-> later.
Citizens of Visalia Hope for a Rail-
road to the Mountains.
Visalia, June I.— The City Council last
night by a unanimous vote granted the
Visalia Railroad the right-of-way through
the city on. Oik street. This brings the
depot within four blocks •of the business
center. This is probably. the beginning of
the extension of the road easterly to the
mountains, which citizens much desire.
One Banker's Excess of
And Now the Bank and the Mer
cantile Concern Are Involved
in Common Ruin.
Special to The Morning Call.
Milwaukee. Wis., June l.— The Plank
intou Bank, which stood a Hard run two
weeks ago after It became known through
the failure of F. A. Lappen & Co. that
the institution had loaued 3219.000 to the
firm, closed its doors this morning and
made an assignment this afternoon. A
notice was placed upon the door which
stated that on account of the failure or
the efforts to reorganize the bank and the
constant withdrawal of deposits it was
thought best to close.
The Lappen inventory was finished yes
terday evening, and the poor allowing of
assets made by It settled the bank. Tbe
Plankinton's recorded claims against the
Lappen business aggregated $219,000, and
the claims which take precedence of lhe
Plitnkinton agmegate $55,000. Tbe in
ventory of the Lappen stock shows a total
of only $208,000, and, allowing for the
satisfaction of prior claims, this left but
$153,000 toward making good the Plankin
ton claim. The Plankintou's principal
i orrespnndents abroad were the National
Bank of the Republic and the United
States National Biok of New York and
Continental National of Chicago, and the
condition of its business with these con
cerns is said to be bad.
An assignment was made to William
Plankinton this afternoon. He is placed
under bouds to the amount of 600,000,
and his bondsmen are John L. Mitchell,
Charles Ray and David Ferguson. Ac
cording to the bond the bank's assets are
With the failure of the Plankinton Bank
the chances for the reorganization of the
Lappen ousiness fell flat, of course. Sheriff
Dun now has in his hands more than $450,
--000 in claims against the Lappens.
The Lappen indebtedness to the bank is
secured by Lappen's personal notes,
which are considered practically worth
less. How Lappen succeeded in placing
the bank in the position it finds Itself is a
mystery. He secured loan after loan of
$10,000 each, even after common rumor
said Lappen was uot wholly sound. Many
sensational rumors are in circulation re
garding the matter. The capital stock of
the bank is $200,000.*
There has been no regular run on the
bank of late. Since the scare two weeks
ago, however, large depositors who did not
take part in the run at that time have
been steadily withdrawing accounts and
transferring them to other banks.
The opinion prevails that Plankinton
will personally see that all claim* are
paid, and as he is many times a million
aire there seems to be some ground for the
Banks and Various Sorts of Con-
cerns Ruined.
Cincinnati, June I.— The Victoria
Cordage Company filed a deed of assign
ment this afternoon to W. H. Billing. The
liabilities are said to be 5400.000 and the
assets may reach 5500.000. The plant is
in Dayton, but the main office is iv this
city. The company was leased by the
National Cordage Company, but the lease
was not recorded until the latter failed.
That failure, it is said, caused this.
Kokomo, Ind., June I.— The Diamond
Plate-Glass Company ln this city, employ
ing 800 men, has closed indefinitely. The
branch plant at Elwood has also closed,
throwing COO men out of work. An official
of the company said:
"We have more than 8000,000 worth of
glass on hand and the market is utterly
demoralized. The threatening financial
situation has paralyzed new construction,
and the menacing attitude of Congress on
the tariff adds to the uncertainty. We will
wait until the cloud of uncertainty drifts
away. Five of the ten plate-glass fac
tories in this country are down and the
other five are preparing to close at once."
Washington, June 1. — Comptroller
Eckles was advised this afternoon of the
failure ol the First National Bank of
Brady, Tex. The bank Is a small one, the
capital being 550.000.
Tacoma, Wash., June I.— The Clearing
house yesterday issued the following no
tice: "Owing to disquieting rumors in
circulation affecting the standing of the
Merchants' National Bank this association
has resolved to protect the depositors if
Officers of the bank to-day gave out the
following dispatch sent to the Comp
troller of Currency, Washington, D. C. :
"Owing to unexpected demands of our
New York correspondent, the Chase Na
tional Bank, the continued withdrawal of
deposits and inability to realize on assets
with sufficient promptness to withstand
constant drawing upon our resources, and
in justice to ourselves and the protection
of our creditors, we are obliged to tem
porarily suspend. Please send examiner."
Figures glveu out at this time, said to be
approximately correct, show total liabili
ties of 8600,000, assets 81.100,000. The ex
aminer has wired that he will take posses
sion t< -day.
The temporary suspension of the Mer
chants' National Bank caused widespread
comment locally owing to its prominent
position and the fact that it was one of
the oldest hanking institutions in the State.
Succeeding the Bank of New Tacuiua in
May, 1884, with a capital of $50,000, it soon
established a reputation throughout the
country, its clientage extending into nearly
every Stat* and Territory in the Union.
It has paid to Its stockholders during the
nine years of its existence more than $100,
--000 in dividends, and had $125,000 in sur
plus and undivided profits, together with
a capital of $250,000. Its total liabilities,
including lhe. amount due depositors, are
$600, 0C0. with total assets of $1,100,000.
One cause which led to the suspension of
the institution was the erection tbree years
ago of a large bank building at a cost of
about $175,000. The taking of so much
money out of business and the season of
depression ensuing compelled the bank to
become a borrower from its Eastern corre
spondents, and financial stringency pre
vailing in the East at the present time,
together with, the advertised statement of
Eastern banks, particularly the New* York
banks, that they would make no more ad
vances to Western and Southern institu
tions, and' the. sudden demand upon it by
its New York correspondent for a settle
ment precipitated a crisis. This compelled
the directors to close the doors of the batik,
which they did rather than sacrifice their
securities, in the hope that adjustment of
the bank's affairs might result In. a. re
sumption of business,.
- Cleveland. June I.— The failure
the H. McLain Machine Company ",; at
Canton was to-day followed by the per
sonal assignment of J. -H. McLain, the
president and principal owner in tho
company, and Frank C. McLain, bis
son and ' an officer in the com
pany. The McLain Company manu
factured steam heaters, brass fittings
and agricultural implements. Frank
C. McLain carried a stock of art
goods and bicycles. The assignment deeds
aggregate 5125,000. The liabilities are not
yet tabulated, but the assignee hopes that
the assets, estimated at $150,000, will more
than cover them.
Examination Will Be Held at Vallejo
for Positions.
Vallejo, June 1.--In compliance with
a special order issued bvthe Honorable
Secretary of the Navy Herbert, examina
tion of applicants will b* neld at Mare
Island navy-yard June 10 for the follow
ing positions:
Master ship-fitter, master machinist and
quarterman in charge of laborers, the two
former at $6 and the latter at So 20 per
diem. The examination will be open to all
comers who can give satisfactory evidence
of experience. They must be citizens of
the United States, and application must
be accompanied by certificate of habits,
skill and experience. The examination
must be In accordance with civil service
rule, notwithstanding that efforts have
been made to supplant it by the adoption
of the former system.
Secretary Herbert will hold the board
responsible for the recommendation of any
improper person.
The hoard of examiners are: Com
mander Henry Glass, president; Assistant
Engineer Broil Theiss, recorder; Engineer
George J. Burnap and Naval Constructor
David W. Taylor. The board will for
ward a full written report to the Navy
Department thiough the commandant of
the navy-yard, showing the merits of the
applicants and designating the one best
qualified for the place. Should none of the
candidates be qualified, the position will
remain open nntil a suitable person ha*
heen secured. Following the appointment
of candidates the present steam-encineer
ing and steam-fitting departments will be
consolidated into one, under the super
vision of one officer instead* of two as at
present. This is the first of many changes
that are to follow during the summer.
Probability of Trouble in Redistrict-
ing New County Districts.
San Bernardino, June l.— Some inter
esting legal questions are involved in con
nection with redisricting supervisorial
districts in San Bernardino County arising
out of the formation of Riverside County,
and removal by law of Supervisor White
from the board.
The law says that when a vacancy oc
curs the election of a successor shall be
held on the filth Tuesday thereafter, In
the present case the question arises
whether the vacancy took place on the
day when the new officers of Riverside
County were declared elected, or on June
5 when county officers begin the legal
business of the new county. The whole
matter came belore the board of this
county yesterday when. Supervisors Lord
and Victor threw a disturbing element
into the controversy by proposing two
shoestring districts for the purpose of con
trolling the politics of the county. They
were opposed by Supervisors Randall and
Turner, who favored districting according
to population, resulting in a tie vote. The
matter will probably give rise to a heated
discussion injjie future.

Excitement at the Buckeye Mining
Camp Subsiding.
Carson, June I.— The Buckeye mining
excitement is cooling down. Nine jumpers,
all of whom claim to have interest in the
Black Horse claim, got in a four-horse rig
and came to Genon, the county seat of
Douglass County, and surrendered them
selves to the Sheriff..
It transpires now that Arthur Raycraft,
who was in the cabin riddled with bullets,
fired the first shot.
Ten men were left at the mine for whom
the Sheriff had no warrants. Pete Millich,
the leader, was placed under 8500 bonds,
and the rest were released on their own re
cognizance. Ex-Congressman Woodburn
has been retained by the defense. The
Carson owners left for Genoa to-day to be
present at the proceedings. :

ing, moreover, was neater and steadier
than ever before since the beginning of
the match. The score now is: Ives (still
playing) 4001, Roberts 3454. Roberts is
disgusted on account of the turn matters
have taken, and says he will give Ives this
game if Ives will play another of 2000 up
for £500 or £1000, the conditions to be the
same except that the cannon stroke will
be barred when the balls get jammed iv
the jaws of a pocket.
Arrival of the Steamship Tacoma at
Victoria, B. C, June I.— The steamer
Tacoma arrived to-day from Yokohama

Rich Gold Ore Found in
Cocopah Mountains.
Important and Positive Testimony in
Support of His Claim to
the Fortune.
Special to The Mousing Call.
Sax Diego, June I.— Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Ingram and Mr. Seabed, a Baptist
clergyman of this city, leave in the morn
ing for a rich mine discovered by Mrs.
Ingram seven months ago. on the desert,
to more fully locate It. and secure informa
tion necessary to obtain title to the prop
erty. It is believed to I.c the lost Pegleg
mine. The ore assays $3500 to the ton and
the vein is four feet wide. Four claims
have been staked off by Ingram, each full
1500 feet lone, and water is to he secured
in abundance close at hand. The location
is given as in the Cocopah Mountains, near
the proposed route of the San Dieco and
Phce ilx Railway. The present expedition
is merely to secure information necessary
to filing definitely upon the claims already
staked off. Ingram and his wife have
spent three years in the desert looking fur
the mine and were leaving in October when
guided to it by an Indian. Ingram stayed
at the foot of the mountain, placing little
confidence in the story of the Indian, but
his wife climbed to the place designated
and brought back such rich specimens of
ore that Ingram carefully prospected tho
field, and he is confident they have a
bonanza. They knew Prg'eg Smith, and
received from his physician such informa
tion as to the location of the mine that they
were confident it really existed.
Evidence in the Ryer Case in Favor
of the Contestant.
Stockton, June I.— The taking of testi
mony in the Ryer contest was closed here
to-day. Some very important evidence for
the contestant was brought out to-day,
wheu several witnesses swore to occasions
when Dr. Kyor acknowledged Chris as his
uoy, and paid for shoes for him.
Mrs. Weber, widow of Captain Weber,
the founder of Stockton, testified at her
home (being too ill to go to court),
that she remembered of hearing about the
christening of Chris Ryer; and her hus
band. Major Hammond and others plagued
Dr. Ryer about it, when he dined at the
house. General Pico told the witness at
the time that Dr. Ryer asked him to be
godfather for his son. The witness does !
not know Chris, and never saw him, but
she said she knew he was right, and she j
wanted to see justice done. ELK
The People of San Jose May Erect a
Furnace for It.
San Jose, June I.— The Common Coun
cil of this city is very much puzzled over
the problem of tbe disposal of the city
garbage. There is at present no public
dump, and private parties who allow gar
bage to be dumped on their premises are
prosecuted by the Board of Health for !
maintaining nuisances. In consequence
teamsters cannot be hired to haul away
garbage, as they are liable to arrest for j
depositing it anywhere in the city limits.
This trouble has been brewing for some
time, and in consequence garbage has col
lected in many directions. There are loud
complaints to the Common Council of
nuisaucps being maintained in many back
yards. The urgent question will come up
before the Common Council next Monday
evening, as a proposition to buy a garbage
burning furnace will then be considered.
A Sister of the British Vice-Consul
at Los Angeles Drowned.
Los Angeles, June I.— Mary F. Morti
mer, a sister of C. White Mortimer, thb
British Vice-Consul here, was drowned at
Westlake Park to-night. It was presuma
bly a case of suicide. She had acted
strangely for some weeks and had been
closely watched. In some manner she
slipped away unobserved, and before she
could be found met her death in the lake.
The woman was seen in the lake by a
young man named Van Valkenburg, who
was riding a bicycle in the park between 7
and 8 o'clock, He at once cave the alarm
and a boat was launched, which arrived on
the spot too late. When Van Valkenburg
saw Miss Mortimer she was struggling in
the water, which is there about twelve
feet deep. The boat found her corpse,
which was with difficulty brought to the
shore. A doctor used every effort to re
suscitate the woman, but without success.
Consul Mortimer was sent for and brought
the remains to the city, where an inquest
will held to-morrow.
