Special to The Morning Call. Menlo Park, June 21.— Governor Stan ford died at 12 o'clock to-night. He passed away peacefully ln his sleep at his residence at Palo Alto. Stanford went out yesterday for a drive to San Carlos and around his farm, and re turned late in the afternoon, apparently in the best of health. tie retired shortly after 10 o'clock, and i about midnight his valet, going into the Governor's bedroom, discovered that he was dead. The Governor looks perfectly natural as . he lies in bed, looking from all appear ances to be in a deep sleep. His body will be embalmed. LELAND STANFORD. Mis Was a Prominent Place in Cal ifornia History. Leland Stanford was born about eight miles from the city of Albany. N. T., Mare!; *3. 1824. He is the fourth of seven ' blotter*, all of whom are still living save j i o'ae. His ancestors came over from 1 England more than fifty years before | « the Revolution of 1776, and settled in the 1 Mohawk Valley. They were farmers of ' good repute, thrifty and industrious. Five j i generations of them have lived to till the ! • soil of the Empire State. Josiah Stan- | i ford, the father of Leland, was a \ man of marked public spirit and energy. Besides cultivating his farm, he took contracts for building roads and bridges in all parts of his native county, He was among the first advocates of the Erie canal, and watched its progress and completion with the keenest interest. He saw with prophetic eye that it was but the beginning of that vast system of internal improvements that was to make his State so famous. In 1828 the locomotive burst upon the world like a miracle. More than all the agencies of previous times combined, it came charged with a power to revolution ize commerce and to immeasurably improve o-an's social aud physical condition. The j'-'-nt news of the success of George :'• fhenson's locomotive engine, "The X <cke\" on the Manchester and Liverpool road, had crossed the Atlantic but a few months be fore a charter was obtained in 1829 from the Legislature of the State of New York for a railroad between Albany and Schenectady. Josiah Stanford was among tbe foremost in the new enterprise. He took big contracts for grading and pushed forward the work with the greatest vigor, and from that day to this the Stanfords have more or less been engaged in the hororable business of railroad building. < » .c of them commenced work on the first iron road built in the United States, and one, the subject of this sketch, and a son of that pioneer, forty years later, drove, with his stronc hand, the last spike of the great' Pacific Railroad. The Albany and Schenectady Railroad, fifteen miles in length, forms one of the links in the over land road, which measures 3300 miles be tween the Atlantic and the Pacific. What the father commenced his son gloriously completed two score ,of years afterward. Grand coincidence! precious heirloom, of which even a royal family might be " oad, is this. Till lie was 20 years of age young Leland's time was divined between the healthful occupations of a farm life and his studies. In 1846 be entered the law office of Wheaion, Doolittle & Hadly, eminent at torneys in the city of Albany. After three years of patient and hard i study be was admitted to practice ; law in the Supreme Conit of i the State of New York. Soon after this I i he took Horace Greeley's advice, "Young | < man, go West," and set out to find a new j home on the frontier. He . settled I i In Port Washington,' in the northern j i part of Wisconsin, and for four years be ] was engaged in the practice of law at tbat i •place. He was only moderately successful as a lawyer. His library wns destroyed by fire at Port Washington and in the spring of 1852 and the young lawyer, - mo mentarily disheartened, determined to carve out a name for himself in California. He arrived in the State on | the 12:h of July, and at once went into the mercantile business with Mi brothers, three of whom had preceded him. They had a house at Sacramento and several branches scattered over the State. Stan- , ford, himself, settled at Michigan Bluff in Placer County, then a great place of trade with the mines. He took an active interest in public affairs also, and early became an ardent anti-slavery man, a belief at that time calculated to make any man unpop ular in California. Stanford went on The Morning Call. nevertheless, and was early brought forward as a candidate . for Governor. Twice he was nominated, against his wishes, for office, once in 1857 and again in 1859: but the Republican ticket in neither of those years was little heard of or men tioned, the ' contest being almost entirely between the two wings of the Democratic party. In 1860 he was chosen a delegate to the Chicago convention, lie there made the acquaintance ol Abra ham Lincoln, an acquaintance that ripened jnto an intimate friendship, which re mained warm and unbroken till the Presi dent's martyred death. Being in Washington at the time of Mr. Lincoln's at first inauguration, Lincoln's first inauguration, he remained there several weeks by special request of the President. During those perilous times, when the very air was filled with revolution, trouble was antici pated in California, for it was known that preparations were being made to take her out of the Union. Mr. Lincoln was a wise and -shrewd judge ' of men," and he readily saw that Mr. Stanford, above all otber men he had met/was the true representative man of the Pacific Coast. The President, Secretary Sew i ard, and other members of the Cab • met took him into their confidence, : and followed his advice relative to nearly all the Federal appointments for THE LATE SENATOR LELAND STANFORD. and as to what measures would preserve peace and loyalty in California. A most conscientious and capable adviser he proved to be. The . policy he sug gested, when adopted by tho Government, produced the most satisfactory results, and the appointees made at his request proved themselves, without exception, ex cellent officers aud abundantly qualified for their several positions. The laws of the United States were in no place better enforced than in California during the war. Learning, while in Washington, that a movement was on foot to nominate him for Governor of his adopted State, be immediately wrote a letter, declining the use of his name for that or any other political position. But his friends at home did not publish the letter as he requested them to do, and he was disappointed to find, on his return from the capital, that his nomination to the first office in California was a foregone conclusion. Seeing that he was fairly in for it and that there was no es cape he entered upon the contest with all the zeal and strength there was in him, and in the fall of 1861 he was elected Gov ernor by a plurality of 13,000 votes. Even when he was Governor be took a great Interest in the building of the pro posed Pacific railroad, and with Charles F. Crocker, Collis P. Huntington, Mark Hop kins and Miller a company was organized at Sacramento on July 11, i&6l. te build the Central Pacific Railroad. One year from that date Congress passed an net granting to the corporation a loan of bonds averaging 835,000 per mile, principal SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 21, 1893. and interest to be repaid at the expiration or thirty years. In addition to this alternate sections of unoccupied land on either side of the road were donated to the com pany absolutely. None of this subsidy could be obtained till fifty miles were com pleted and furnished with rolling-stock. As all of the iron and most of the other material had to be transported from the Atlantic States along two oceans and across a foreign country on its way to California, but little work was done till the fall of 1863, and it was not till July 1. 1864, that the first thirty-one miles were completed. •From this date commences the mighty struggles and trials of the com pany, The next hundred miles lay across a chain of mountains, the most difficult to pierce, grade and subdue of any in the world. Imagine a series of lofty cones one above another, till in a distance of seventy miles an elevation is reached of 7042 feet above the starting point, and that the proposition was to build a railroad up and across those mountain peaks and down the other side Into the valley, 3000 feet below, and some idea can be formed of the mag nitude of almost the first work commenced by the Pacific Railroad Company. Many engineers examined the proposed road and declared it impossible to con struct, and Governor Stanford himself once having climbed to the top of one of the snow-capped Sierras exclaimed with a sigh : "Is it possible a railroad can be built here ?" Nevertheless, the work went on. The State of California donated the company 81,500.000, and bonds were placed in Europe to complete the work. Tbo fiuancial troubles of the Central Pacific at last having been cleared away, its progress across aid beyond the moun tains was extremely rapid. Five hun dred aud thirty miles were built in 293 days: ten miles of it in a single day— a feat unprecedented showing the thorough discipline of the men who did it, and (he perfect organiza tion of the company which controlled them. On the 10th of May, 1869, on Promontory Mountain, at a spot overlooking Salt Lake, the Inst rail was laid and the last spike driven that finished the Pacific Railroad. A telegraph wire was attached to the handle of the silver hammer used by Governor Stanford on that occasion, and as he struck the concluding blow which completed the great work, " the event was instantly flashed to all parts of the United States. It was a day of national praise and jubi lee. Celobrations, ringing of bells, the roar of cannon, and vast processions all over the country, showed how joyfully the people welcomed the news. At the age of 26 Leland Stanford was married to Miss Jane Lathrup, daughter of Dyer Lathrop Esq., for many years a prominent merchant of Albany, N. Y. Mrs. Stanford is an estimable lady, queenly in person and endowed with an exalted sense of the duties of her high social posi tion. Possessed of many domestic virtues, there is a daily beauty in her life and character which. belongs only to those true women who are the nobility of their sex. Mr. and Mrs. Stanford had but one child. a boy, whose death was the greatest blow ever dealt to the parents, and to coir ! niemorate whom was founded the Leland Stanford Jr. University. ' s From the time of quitting the guberna torial office Stanford devoted himself exclusively to the interest of the | Central and Southern Pacific rail ! roads, of which he bad been elected ] President. In 1883, however, there was j a fight on for a senatorship, the Legislature to meet in the following winter having to elect a suc cessor to J. F. Farley, but prior to the election there was no whisper of Stanford, even should the Republicans carry the State as it was virtually conceded they would do. The coming man seemed to be non. A. A. Sargent, who it was understood had back of him the railroad influence, at that time all-powerful. It Is certain that Sargent had the friendship of Collis P. Huntington. .. The Republicans carried the Legislature, and iiiet;, suddenly, the candidacy of Leland Stanford was sprung and Sargent retired beaten and broken-hearted. The campaign manager of the railroad magnate was Henry Vrooman, Senator then from Alameda County, and it was man aged with the ability lor which Vrooman had always been noted. Upon Vrooman for It, too, revenge was taken by the friends of Sargent, and he too was beaten and broken. The career of Stanford In the Senate has not been notable, but the detail? are of too recent occurrence to require re capitulation. He was re-elected to the Senate .in 1890 and his term would have expired on March 3, 1897. . In 1888 . the University was '■_•' founded which bears hit name and that of his son at Palo Alto. He endowed it with a mag nificent endowment, estimated Ato be valued at ■ 620,000,000, and immediately tne work of erecting the necessary buildings was begun under the founder's own eye. Two yew ago the University, though still In All uncompleted condition, was opened Tor the . reception of stu dents. In the short time that has elapsed it has developed into a thoroughly equipped Institution of learn ing with a corps of professors and teach ers second to none of any university in the land. |£S9§_9PQ_^P Without doubt the Leland Stanford Jr. University will be the most enduring monument of Governor Stanford's merits as a man and a philanthropist. Even at this early day no person visits California without looking in at the University at Palo Alto, and in the years to come, when the magnificent endowment has come to a full fruition, and the green swards of Palo Alto are covered with the contemplated structures for the home of learning, there is no saying that the University will not be the chief attraction among California's many points of interest.'. HILL IN THE FIELD. San Francisco Given Cheap Over land Rates at Last. This Town Likewise Shares in the Benefits of Great Northern Competition. Special to The Morning Call. Chicago, June 20.— The Great North ern put the knife into transcontinental rates again to-day by announcing a rate of Ssl first-class and 833 second-class from St. Paul to San Francisco. This includes a berth and meals on the steamer from Seattle to San Francisco. This will drag the Union Pacific into the fight unless that road is prepared to sacrifice its Portland business. The Atchison to-day anaouuced that it would put into effect at once a round-trip rate of one and third fare from Texas points to Chicago and return. New Tor.X, June 20.— C. P. Hunting says regarding the report that the Cana dian Pacific had begun a rate war against the Southern Pacific: "Our relations' with the Canadian Pacific are very pleasant and we expect them to continue so. 1 have no information that it has cut under our rates to San Francisco. It would not pay it to compete for that business. Its line ends way up the coast at Vancouver, aad it would have to tranship from there to San Francisco. I guess you will find there is no trouble. Our folks certainly know of nine." DAN J. fIURPHY DEAD. Accidentally Shot at His Santa Clara Ranch. He Was Cleaning a Pistol When the Weapon Imploded, Killing Him ' ' : Almost Instantaneously. Special to The Jtoaxixn Call San Jose, June 20.— At the James Murphy ranch, a few miles north of this city, this morning Dan J. Murphy, a prom inent stock-raiser, aged 32 years, was in stantly killed while engaged, in cleaning his revolver. He was preparing to go away on a short trip and had been en gaged in packing a valise. He took the revolver to an outhouse used as sleeping quarters by the ranch bands, seated him self on a bed and was cleaning the weapon when it was discharged, the bullet striking him on the left side just above the heart. The victim, who was alone in the room, staggered io the doer and fell forward into (he yard. Members of the family rushed from the bouse at the. report of the shot and saw him fall out of the door. When ho was reached be was unconscious and died in a few minutes. Medical aid was summoned from this city, and an exami nation of the wound showed that death had been almost instantaneous. Deceased was a Native Son. He has been prominent in stock-raising in this connty, and was the director of the agri cultural society. The deceased was a Ron of James Murphy, the wealthy rancher, wno lived on the Milpitas ro»d. near San Jose. Old Mrs. Murphy, who was a prominent figure for many years In the Santa Clara Valley and who died some months ago at an ad vanced age, was his aunt by marriage to his uncle, tlie late Martin Murphy of San Jose. He was a first cousin to Barney Murphy, who is well-known in this city and throughout the State. BLATCHFORD VERY ILL. Though His Is by No Means a Case Without Hope. Newport. R. 1., Juue 20.— Dr. Rankin' has made a statement concerning the con dition of Associate Justice Blatchford.' He says the Judge has had two slight shocks, but is now doing well, though he is very weak. There are no dangerous signs at present, though like all cases of this kind there is a possibility of a fatal stroke at any moment. The patient still retains his mental faculties, but is unable to sign bis -name. Hi* son and the doc tors are assisting him in completing some urgent business. AHLWARDT IS AMBITIOUS. Wants to Be Elected to the Reichs- tag the Second Time. : Berlin, June 20.'— The second ballots will begin on June 23 generally, In Prussia and Saxony on June 24 and throughout Bavaria and Wurtembure on June 26. Rector Ahlwardt, the Jew-baiter, an nounces that he will not sit in the next Reichstag for Arhswalde, where the voters gave him a large majority over all on the first ballot, but will contest Neustettin with Hersberg (Conservative), with whom be has the right of reballot. The Atlanta Ordered Back. Washington, June 20.— An order di recting the cruiser Atlanta to return to the United States was issued to-day. This indicates that the trouble m Nicaragua is at an end, and also Captain Higginson's delay in sailing, for. which he was so se verely censured,' may be ; shown to have been justified by the condition of the ship, which is said to be bad. Suicide of a Murderer. Modesto, June 20.— L00 Sv, Chinaman, who shot and instantly killed Loo Sam last Saturday, committed suicide by hang ing himself ■in the County Jail last night. EVADED THE LAW. Chinese Were Run Over the Border, AND OPIUM PAID NO DUTY. The Biggest Gang of Smugglers That . Has Ever Been Unearthed in This Country. Special to The Morning Call. Washington, June 20.— The official heads of Patrick H. Winston, United States Attorney; Thomas R. Brown, United States Marshal; Andrew Wass.in, United States Collector at Port Town send; C. J. Mulkey, United States Special Agent, and six Special Inspectors of Cus toms in the Puget Sound district, all in the State of Washington, have fallen into the official hopper as the result of the re ports made to Secretary Carlisle by Special Agents Wood and Lewis. These reports are numerous and circum stantial as to details and tell the story of one of the most extensive and successful conspiracies ever formed to smuggle Chi nese and opium into the United States across the far Northwestern boundary. There has been hardly a day for the past two months that reports or telegrams bave not been received at the Treasury Depart ment from Agents Wood and Lewis, and on these reports the officials of the Treas ury Department have been summarily dismissed. The last batch of dismissals of customs inspectors was made Saturday, but Secre tary Carlisle thinks the ends of justice may be defeated by making public their names. These officials, it is charged, by reports received, have been doing a wholesale business for several years in connection with private parties in Victoria, B- C, In smuggling in Chinese by means of fraudu lent certificates and permitting opium smuggling, either by connivance or other wise. Scandals for the past twelve or fifteen years have attached more or less to these officials in the Puget Sound district, whose duty it was to guard from violation the law as to the illicit business of Chinese and opium smuggling into the United Slates. Politics never entered into it, but the immense profit in. the business seems to have corrupted many officials.' Moie than two months ago Agents Wood and Lewis, new men from the East, were de tailed secretly to investigate these frauds, with the result as stated. Uninfluenced by local surroundings or affiliations they wont to work and unearthed what was re garded here as one of the greatest conspir acies in which Government officials were ever implicated. - Not to defeat the continuance of investi gation all the prominent Government offi cial's names were removed by the Presi dent and their »ui_cessors appointed with out the usual announcements being made.' The purpose was to keep the public in ignorance that otber implicated persons might be caught. The new men appointed in the place ot those removed were: James L. Saunders, Collector at Port Townsend; James C. Drake, United States Marshal; W. H. Brinker. United States Attorney. Other removals are yet to come and the matter in due course of time will find its way into the courts. About four months ago Special Agent Noyes of this city was sent to. the Puget Sound district by the Secretary of the Treasury to make an investigation of the Federal officials, and the dismissals now announced result from his reports. Ex-Collector Phelps, it Is said, was the first to call the attention of the Treasury Department to the fact that there was something wrong. He found that nearly all the opium seized here came from the Northwest, and also that hundreds of Chinese were coming in from the same direction. Special Agent Noyes, in discussing the matter yesterday, said: "I am not sur prised that the changes have been made because I knew they were coming. I was the first one to make an investigation in that district, and I found soma very crooked work. "There was a conspiracy among some of the officials, and they had been engaged in permitting the illegal entry of Chinese and opium for over a year, and there is no way of estimating the amount of money they made. "During my investigation I recommended the immediate removal of several officials, which was done, and in ray report I ad vised the dismissal of those removed yes terday. It was at my request that Special Agents Wood and Lewis were sent to review my report, and -of course 1 am pleased that they have sustained my inves tigation." X: - ___. <- 4 y "_. : COAST GOSSIP.

It Seems a Miracle That the Fatalities Were Not Much nore Numerous. Special to The Mobnino Call. New York, June 20.— A train on the Long Island Railroad, upon which about 1000 persons were returning from Sheeie head Bay races, was derailed this evening in a tunnel a short distance from Parks ville. Two persons were killed outright, two died soon after being removed to the hospital, and about ICO were injured, many so seriously that they will not re cover. The killed at the time of the acci dent were: _X - Patrick Daly, a court "officer, of New York City. H. S. Pringle of New Yoik. Died In the hospital : Henry Spink, Police Court Marshal, of New York. Robert Cutting, a policeman, of New York. JO B. J. McGnnigle. Fritz Johnson. John Simlay. The Injured are: Hiram A. Maynard of New York; Nicholas Foster of New York ; P. Johnson of New York; Andrew Bar tholomew of Saley Creek, N. V., left leg cut off; James Fitzsimmons of New York, foot cut off; Patrick Graham of New York; J. B. Childs of Elizabeth, N.J.; E. C. Hills of New YorK; Bronson J. Mc- Kenna, a policeman, of New York; Frank J. 1* inn of New York. Richard Flynn of New York, William Herring of Auburn, N. V. ; James Bradford of Pater son, N.J.; Patrick Gibbs of Brooklyn, Charles Herring of New York, Henry Ruesch of New York, Hugh J. McGonigle of Philadelphia, Philip . Isaacs of New York. Frederick Sch.enjbergof New York, Mr. Quinby, serious injuries, unconscious; Mr. Addlcks of New York, internal inju ries, unconscious; W. D. Ford, L. Foster of New York and an unknown man, un conscious. Many of the injured were taken In pri vate conveyances or by friends to the New York hospitals or to their homes. As the train drew near the tunnel it suddenly gave a jerk and jolt, and the en gine and the first two cars ran along bumping and reeling to the very mouth or the tunnel, then broke loose and were carried through. The other part of the train pulled apart, the first half dragging itself half way through the tunnel. People jumped from the train and fell upon the embankment to bo bruise 4 and cut by the cars, and others were bruised upon the rocks of the tunnel. Women fainted and men became panic stricken and trampled them and their children under foot in the mad flight for safety. When the train was finally shopped cooler heads immediately began to render assistance to the wounded, who lay along the track, and orders to the Brooklyn hospital, for ambulances were imme diately sent. In tha meantime the wounded were gathered up and stretched out upon the grass on the embankment. Hundred of persons, it is said, were placed there. The people, who from their carriages ou the driveway above looked down upon the terrible scene, also rendered assistance. The train, without doubt, was derailed by a misplaced switch, for .it stood there open after the accident in mute evi dence. As the first two cars remained on the track, it is clear that the switch was shut when these passed over, but was jolted loose and allowed the other part of the train to be derailed.

CALLED HIM DOWN Sir Richard Webster Gets Jolted, HE SHOWED A HIGH HAND. - ' Nevertheless Great Britain Must Abide by the Decision of the Bering Sea Tribunal. Special to The Mobninq Call. Paris, June 20.— Uoon the resumption of the sitting of the Bering Sea Tribunal of Arbitration to-day Sir Richard Webster, counsel for Great Britain, continued his argument in support of the British case. The proceedings were temporarily enliv ened by the intervention of Baron de Courcelles, president of the tribunal, who took exception to the statement by Sir Richard, and'who took the opportunity to instruct Sir Richard that the tribunal knew its duties ar.d powers and could not allow him to make statements 'lending to the inference that Great Britain would perhaps not abide by the decision of the tribunal. Sir Richard devoted part of his speech to a reindictment of the management or. mismanagement of the Pribyloff Islands, both by the local United States authorities and the agents of tbe Alaska Commercial Company. Prior to 1889 these persons had for obvious reasons. Sir Richard declared, concealed the real state of affairs from the authorities at Washington. In the course of his remarks Sir Richard maintained that both Great Britain and the United States were under moral obli gations to sanction by legislation whatever regulations as to the seal fisheries the tri bunal might adopt, but, lie added, this ob ligation was not legally binding. When Sir Richard made this statement Baron de Courcelles interrupted him before he could proceed further and in a sharp tone said to him: "1 cannot allow you to say that before us. We are conducting a serious business. Neither country a party to this arbitration can break its word and reject the award made by this tribunal." Sir Richard was a little taken back by the sharpness of the president's tone, and hastened to explain that a moral obliga tion was as binding as a legal one. In conclusion, Sir Richard said that it must be left to each party to the arbitra tion to take measures to enforce the regu lations enacted by tbe tribunal. Hon. C. H. Topper, Canadian Minister of Marine and British agent, followed Sir Ricbaad Webster. He read the statement of facts regarding the seizures by the United States of sealing vessels on which both Great Britain and the United States had agreed, and It was needless for thd arbitrators to render any decision. CAUGHT THE MISCREANTS. Spanish Dynamiters Fall Before Their Own Infernal-Machine. Madrid. June 21.— A large dynamite bomb was exploded at midnight a few feet from the house of Canovas del Castillo. ex-Premier. The explosion was heard thrnuchout the city, and ilia immediate district was shaken as by an earthquake. Three policemen ran to the spot and found the dismembered body of a man in the street and caught another man crawling down the street on his hands and knees. When arrested the man refused to say what be know of tho explosion, but com plained that be was severely wounded. One of his legs is broken, his scalp is torn and his face was covered with blood. He was taken to the police station and identi fied as one of the three men who had been seen standing near the Canovas house just before the explosion. Many houses in the neighborhood were badly damaged, having their windows shattered and walls sprune, but none of their occupants were injured. The news of the explosion spread throughout the city before 1 o'clock, and all the Cabinet Ministers and conspicuous Deputies called upon Canovas at once to congratulate him on his escape. It was reported at 12:30 o'clock that* man with a petard under his coat had been arrested near tho Bank of Spain. The Fire Record.
