Lot Bliss, the 17th victim of the Stockton explosion, died on Wedn esday. An attempt to burglarize the first National gold bank of Petalu ma, was made Tuesday night. Entrance to the building was ef fected through a skylight, letting the burglars down upon the top of the vault. They had nearly re moved the brick covering, when either the task here revealed was too great, or being alarmed, the job was abandoned. The mystery of a man coming ashore in a row boat under murder ous circumstances at Berkeley a lew nights ago is being investigat ed by detectives, but their labor has only intensified the mystery. The boat belonged to John French, a boatman by occupation, 417 Drum m street. Between 6 and t o'clock on Sunday evening French was seen to embark in his boat at Vallejo street wharf in company with another man. He rowed out, and when last seen by persons on shore the boat was headed for the Berkeley shore. Who French's companion was in the boat has not yet been ascer tained. The boat however, was covered with blood when found the following morning, and an ex amination of the beach where it was discovered, showed the foot prints of only one person having left -it.- - The blood on--the -.-boat and the single line of footprints induce the belief among detectives that one of the two men may have murdered the other and thrown his body into the bar.

The census bill as it passed the house, provides that enumera tion shall commence on the first Monday in June, and that returns shall be forwarded to the super visor on or before the 1st of July, 18S0. The American excusionists to Mexico are returning disappointed. They see but little hope of extend- : ing trade under the present Mexi can tariff and in the face of the jealousy and opposition of Mexi cans to American railroads and other enterprises. The Chicago Times, discuss ing the Chinese bill says : " Far seeing men of all shades of politi cal opinion have recognized the ffact that the country will never permit itself to be mongolianized. Even if this effort has no result,, the agitation will serve to enlight en the public, and pave the way for something more effective," under democratic auspices? - - Rich silver and gold deposits have been discovered In Mcnomo nee county, Michigan, near Mari nette, Wisconsin. Of three speci mens of iron ore sent to Chicago for analysis one yielded 16 gold and silver per ton. There has been over 75,000 tons of iron ore shipped from the mine during the past season, which undoubtedly contained millions of dollars in gold and silver. Senator Grover and Represen tatives Luttrell, Vvrigginton and "Patterson, on "Wednesday urged the president to sign the ariti Chinese bill, and presented argu- ments and reasons for so doing. The president's answer was similar j The democrats, like republicans, gressional delegation on Tuesday, loft t.hn "White house with the im- to that given a republican con pression that the president will not sign the bill. A Washington correspondent says that 400 or 500 negroes from South Carolina will start for Idaho in three weeks to locate lands and work on the railroad from Boise. Transportation is provided, and they understand well that they will be taken care of till they can stand alone, through the efforts of Senator Bruce and other congress men. This is the first of a large number who will follow and estab lish colonies, and Senator Bruce thinks it an excellent beginning of negro independence and mainly self support. Foreign IVch'K.
