What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A FEW WITNESSES EXAMINED Woman Declaring Bereeet an eltenimwee1 of God\ Insisted on Giving Testimony. San Francis's), April 22. -For hours before the preliminary examination of Theodore Durranecornmenced in Judge Conlon's court this morning, a crowd commenced to gather and a squad of police were stationed .at the entrance of the hall te preserve order. Judge Conlon s courtroom was crowd- / • de au:Legation and not a few police- men were stationed. in different parts of the.room on the lookout for cranks, who have written threatening letters to the judge. Before the court opened, 6,000 people surrounded the hall and filled the approaches. When the defend- ant arrived all eyes were turned upon him and he was sketched from all points of view by the newspaper artists. The prisoner looked pale and concerned, but showed no emotion. A photographer exhibited several photographs of Beetles in the church and two large pictures of Marian Williams, Showing the wounds, and the work of physicians were exhibited and attracted much at- tention. They presented a revolting sight. Mrs. Morgan, with whom Miss Will- iams lived in Alameda, was called to the stand. She said that she last saw Mar- ian Williams on the morning qf the 20th and that the degeased had told her she was going to Mrs. Voy's house. She knew Durrant He had called at her house last sumnier and stayed half an hour. She had not seen him this month. ' Charles H. Morgan, husband of the preceding ,witness, said that the girl was counted as one of the family. He could not identify the face shown in the photographs. He also failed to identify the purse found in Durrant's overcoat pocket. THE CRANK APPEARS. Here the name of A. E. Williams, the father of the dead girl, was called, but in his place, a young woman rushed to the stand and said that no one should ,testily before her. She gave the name of Williamson and said that she would be the one to judge Durrant and or- dered him released. The police tried to remove her, but she would not let them touch her, but left the stand voluntarily after some words. She handed an in- coherent letter to the clerk. She s said she was sent by God to judge Durrant. The woman win subsequently identified as Laura Lucy Williarpson of 1,110 Leavenworth street She declared her- self to be an „\emiseary of God.\ She disappeared after being removed from the courtroom. A. E. Williams then took the stand had identified the ourse found in Dur- rant's overcoat, as the one he had given his daughter. Sergeant Burke identified a bunch of keys as those found in the pocket of Durratit's overcoat, with the exception of a 130 key, which he said had been given him by George King on April 13. Burke then told of the finding of the body of Marian Williams in the book closet of the library. identified the pieces of t4e young woman'. underclothing - which had been taken froth out of her throat, where they had been thrust, the broken pieces of a table knife found on her body and the stick which had been used by the murderer in forcing the strips of clothing down the girl's throat. He also testified to the condition of the library door, the lock of which had been broken. Sergeant Burke then gave a bit of sensational evidence, which has not come out before today. He said that when he. In company with other officers, examined the lavatory or washroom in the back part of the church, just to the rear of the pulpit, he saw blood stains on the wash basin and the wall just above it. Sergeant Reynolds had called his attention to these stains. OTHER TESTIMONY. Maggie Fitzpatrick identified Durrant as the young man who has called on her and two friends on allasion street. April 12, on the night Miss Williams was murdered. She said he was agi- tated. He had mistaken her for some one else. Another girl, who was with het, corroborated her evidence, but could not identify Durrant, though she Identified the ooat and hat he wore. The place where these girls say they sale Durrant Is about two blocks from the church. They say they saw him about I p. m. The last witness for the day was Mrs. Mary M. McCoy, a laundress, who tes- tified that she saw a man and a young woman near Emanuel church, between 7 and 8 o'clock on April 12. They ap- peared to her to be lovers. The man was urging the girl to accede to some proposition and the girl seemed to be coaxing him not to insist. Just as she passed them, eh e heard the man say \You are a coward.\ The man was dressed In a long overcoat and daek soft hat. • ROBAH311CONNILL WE12DING QUIET The Welt Known Lawyer end ths Goy• ernor'e Daughter \ germ -Ise.

GOULDS MAKE A HOT LEGAL FIGHT Their Father's Actions Must Be Made • Union Pacific Burden. Albany, N. Y., April 22. -In the court of appeals today, Joseph H. Choate for the appellant, and Winslow Pierce for the respondent, argued an appeal from the order of the general term affirm- ing an order of the special term, de- termining that the Union Pacific Com- pany and the receivers thereof be made a party in the action brought by the Soldiers' Home of St. Louis on behalf of the holder of It.aneas Pacific con- ealidated bend' against Rona Sage and °teethe I. otAtid ffiI4MaB wad' Edwin Gould, George J. Gould, Howard Gould and Helen Gould as executors and executrix of the last will of Jay Gould, to compel the said defendants to account for the proceeds of 29,983 share; of capital stock of the Denver Pacific Railroad & Telegraph Company of the alleged value with interest of $11,000,000, alleged to have beeh wrong- fully withdrawn from the mortgage ex- ecuted by the Kansas Pacific Railway Company to Jay Gould and Russell Sage as trustees, dated May 1, 1889, and to re- move the defendants, Russell Sage and George J. Gould from their trustee- ship. Mr. Choate stdeff111610,4fsd4t * ie Vol\ after the trust was cohstituted, the trustees took the three millions of stock and applied 14 , to their own personal use. The bringing in of thane defen- dants, the Union Pacific company, was unnecessary because the action was against those two trustees personally and the bringing in of other trustees would defeat the object sought to be ob- tained by the plaintiffs. Pierce, on behalf of the plaintiffs, held that the bringing in of the Union Pacific as a defendant was India Bible, be- cause -without them a fina djustment of the rights and equities of the partiek could not be had. He held that by a Judgment rendered by the supreme court of New York in 1880 in the suit of the Kansas Pacific against Gould and Sage, the 29,983 shares of stock were adjudged to be forever freed from the trust created by the mortgages and Gould and Sage were directed to deliver the certificates of stock to the Kansas Pacific company. It is averred that Gould and Sage complied with this or- der.

HARRISON IN 1896 Birnetallists Contemplate Nom- inating Him SENATOR HARRIS' POSITION Ratostilloz•-.41Insioiatessa,14W\ , \fuse aim. as a I empromise Candi- date, It Is Said. Chicago, April 22.-A special dispatch from Indianapolis says: \Benjamin Harrison will be the candi- date of the bimetallist' of the United Btates in len.\ This statement was made today by a republican of national prominence who had just had a talk With the ex -president. \He will be nominated by the repub- !kva anaseenttessoz7. IL compromise can- didate,\ said the speaker. \I do not know If General Harrison will actively seek the nomination. He can get it without uttering a word. The silver people of the west know his sentiments and are satisfied that he Stands for all they can hope to get In 1896. \The speech which General Harrison made in Coiorispo, February 28, 1894. while on his way to California, will nominate him. It was the first utter- ance of the ex -president after he had left the White house.\ INDIANA'S GOVERNOR Is OUTSPOKEN Cleveland's Letter a Disappointment to Friends and Foes Alike, Denver, April 22.-A special to the News from Indianapolis says: Governor Matthews has given the following ex- preasion on the silver question: \I read the letter of the president to the Chicago business men, and It was to me 11: disappointment. It has not been up to expectation created by the notices In advance of its coming and the well-known clearness with which the president usualry expresses himself. No one can doubt the honesty or the strength Of Cleveland's convictions, but In this letter he does not satisfy, In that he neglects to point out the way to re- lieve the situation or to secure the soundness of our national currency. He generalizes; the people expected him to particularize. It is easy to speak in general terms of 'sound money.' The people are beginning to look with alarm moon the coqtinued use of the terms 'sound money,' silver mine owners,' and 'international monetary confer- ences' In dismissing the treatment of the financial problem. The belief is growing that the gold monometallist is as uncompromising and as 'elfish as the te -called silver monometallist could be. \T he banking interests there is but little doubt that the 'sound money' phrase means the gold standard alone, but this interest comprises but a small part of our citizens. It is the high priv- ilege and solemn duty of our govern- ment to sacredly guard and protect the interest, of the creditor and debtor classes of its citizens alike, neither one more than the other. ' \All sections and all interests are equally interested in the prosperity of their country, and should be recognised in the shaping of national policies. It has been demonstrated beyond a doubt that the business of the country can not be conducted upon the 'single standard, be that either gold or silver. 'I am awry that Mr. Cleveland, who is so capable of doing it, did not more fully define his views on the financial question and an- nounce a method that would have given no cause for doubt or misconstruction Not in an unfriendly spirit toward Mr. Cleveland have I thus expressed myself concerning his letter, nor as a radical and uncompromising silver man, which I am not, nor even as a bimetallist, which I am, in the true -and honest defi- nition of that term, but as a citizen feel- ing that we have to consider a question that seriously affects the proeperity of the country, and, like Banquo's ghost, will not down. It is a living issue, and, unless conditions radically and Magic- ally change, will be the dominant issue in len-possibly the - struggle between gold monometallism and a true bimet- allism.\ SENATOR HARICIS MAKES • STAND We Must Have Bimetallism, if W. Have to Establish It Unaided. Memphis, April 22. -In an interview, Senator Harris says: \The utilization and rehabilitation of ether to its position as a money metal and a money of ultimate redemption, In connection with gold, as the regulator of volume or amount of the thing called money, is overwhelmingly strong in the south and west. and, In my opinon, ought to be strong everywhere. While I would be glad to have an international agreement to utilize all the gold and all the silver at an y agreed ratio, I am ready to establish a liniment system for the United States which does rec- ognize both metals and makes them le- gal tender for all purposes and admits them to the nme rights In coinage.\ SEVEN YEARS FOR HIGHWAY ROBBERY inorge Hamilton and Edward Smith Sett toned at Caldwell.

'Now that peace is negotiated and an armistice pro- claimed, a permanent cessation of hos- tilities is near at hand. The terms of peace fixed by our ministers of state give us complete satisfaction. The peace and glory thus secured renders the present a fitting time to enlighten you as to the course of our future pol- icy. \We are rejoiced at the recent vic- tories which have enhanced the glory of our empire. At the same time we are aware that the end of the road wfilch must be traversed by the emperor in the march of 'civilization is far distant and remains yet to be attained. We therefore hope, in common with our common subjects, that we shall always guard against self -contentedness, but in a spirit of modesty and humility strive to ,perfect our military defense 'without falling into extremes. In short, it is our wish that the government and the people alike shall work to a common end, and that our subjects of all classes shall strive each in his sphere for the purpose tif laying the foundation of permanent prosperity. \It is hereby definitely made known that no countenance will be given by us to such as, through conceit at the recent victories, may offer insult to another state or Injure our „relations with friendly power., especially as re- gards China. \After the exchange of ratifications of the treaty of peace, friendship should be restored and endeavor@ made to in- erease more than ever before the rela- tions of good neighborhood. It is our pleasure that our subjects pay due re- spect to these, our expressed wishes. - RUSSIA MAKES OVERTURES, St. Petersburg, April 23.-Rovoe Vrema says in return for the support of Germany and \France in Russia's opposition td cession of Liao Tung pe- ninsula to Japan by treaty of peace just concluded with China, Russia has agreed to support - all the German de- mands regarding German commercial Interests and also -say action of France in Indo-China. JAPAN FEARS NOT. London, April 22. -At the Japanese neaten here today it was stated that nothing wait known that there was in- tended action or otherwise on behalf of the powers In the far east It was declared that there was no foundation for the statement that Great Britain is laying diplomatic plans to secure ad- vantages for herself in that quarter of the world. JAPAN DISOLAIMS ALL SELFISHNESS Has No Aelventsge Over Other Nations on Chinese Soil. Yokohama, April 22. -Following Is the text of the statement Issued by the Japanese government denying that it concluded an offensive and defensive alliance with China and declaring the commercial advantages by Japan will also be enjoyed by other powers, under favored nation treatment: \Misapprehensions are rtrported cur- rent In Europe regarding the terms of the Japan -China treaty. It has been represented that Japan has secured a 2 per cent, ad valorem duty on imports Instead of • duty and formed an of- fensive and defensive alliance with China. The commercial concessions ob- tained by Japan beyond those already secured by treaty powers under the favored nation clause competes the right to navigate the Yang Tee Kiang to Chung King and also the Wung Sung river and canals leading to Soo Chow and Hang Chow, and the right to im- port machinery and certain goods duty free and establish factories. These con- cession are not exclusive to Japan. They naturally extend to European powers in virtue of the favored nation clause, In manuring thee* privileges for all. Japan'inpects the approval of all powers. The reported offensive and de- fensive alliance does not exist An im- perial proclamation just lamed exhorts the nation to moderation at the pres- ent juncture of the cOuntry'm history. • ADMIRAL MEADE'S SQUADRON MOVES _ Sending of Ships to Colon Not From Sin later Motives.

THE A. R. U. IS AFTER HIM - eel:Teen es Freal tie Entire Proceedings as of Smelt Con- sequence New York, April 22. -Collie P. Hunt- ington, president of the Southern Pa- cific railway, was arrested today on the charge of giving a free pan to one Frank Stone. In violation of the inter- state commerce law. President Hunt- ington was arraigned before United States Commissioner Shields. He was represented by , Frederick Coudert. Huntington admitted his identity. He was taken before Judge Brown of the United States district court for a war- rant of removal to Caltfornia. The indictment against Huntington was found March 26 in San Francisco. a certified copy of which was sent Unit- ed States District Attoeney MacFar- lane, who notified the railroad president to appear before the United States Com- missioner and furnish bonds. When Huntington was arraigned Commis- sioner Shields said the only question he could inquire into was one of identity, which counsel for Huntington said would be admitted. An order was then made out holding him to await the issue of the warrant of removal. Coun- sel then went before Judge Brown of the United States district court and the hearing was fixed for next Thursday at 3 o'clock, Huntington meantime being allowed to go on his own recognizance. Huntington said to a reporter after the proceedings before Commissioner Shields; \I have known Frank Stone for twenty-five years. He is a Ban Francisco lawyer. I would not eall hzn a wicked man, because a wicked man would not do things that way. He is an innocent kind of a fellow. I sup- pose he started this thing because I piqued him in some way or other. How I don't know. I may have given him a pass; probably I did, but I have given out so many passes that I don't remem- ber a third of them. Passes usually given out are indorsed as a rule 'not good outside,' and I presume his pass was not so stamped and he took ad- vantage of it. I don't know anything about the matter beyond that, for I don't pay any attention to such things. In fact, I don't care tuppence one way or tha other. It don't amount to any- thing anyhow. I really don't know what action was taken in court this morning. Some arresting business. I suppose it was, but I did not pay any attention. Arrests are among the high and low, and criminal procedure is not confined to any clan. I don't know what will be done. I guess Frank got the pass all right, but I have not time to attend to all the details. I have too much else to do. • \I think the root of the whole matter lies in the tact that when I became president of the Southern Pacific com- pany I discharged tenoteellaree men in Ban Francisco who were, as far as I could see, mere political agents and go- between' for politicians. They did no cover. worky I shut them off. Perhaps they •tbe railway that I could dis- are h gry now and have got to make • strike somewhere.\ HE STABBED HIS HALF BROTHER Indian •riope Killed White Leo on the Coeur d'Alene Reservation.

ACQUITTED OF_A_SERIOUS CHARGE Billy Smith Das in Jell Six Months, Lib- erated and Again Arrested. Lewiston, Idaho, April 90. -Billy Smith, who has been confined in jail since laat Odfober on a charge of cat- tle stealing, was acquitted by the jury this _morniner. Billy is a reservation half-breed and he was charged with rather extensive operatOns in stolen stock. It turns out that he was to some extent made a tool of by certain white men and was perhaps more sinned against than sinning, if the case is con- sidered from the beginning.

DECISIONS BY ALIENS The Supreme Court Has 'a Grave Question to Solve. THERE ARE MILLIONS INVOLVED ete ieeeee -esker and What Effelo They Will Have in This Country. Washington, D. C., April 21. -It Is gen- erally believed that the United States supreme court will before the adjourn- ment of the present term render • de- cision In the case Involving the validity of foreign judgments In the courts of this ci untry. Barring the question of a rehec ink( In the income tax cases. this is en sably the most important matter now tato* the court, and the fact that were argued during the terms of 1893-94 and are,still undecided, it would appear to indicate that the members of the court have en- tountered difficulties in dealing with them. There are two of these cases, but the point. Involved are so much alike that a decision in on be equal to a d first of ititohi vs. Ja is an u peal United 13 will in all probability talon In the other. The that of Samuel J. • . McMullin, and It m the decision of the circuit court of the north- ern district of Ohio, affirming the judg- ment of the Canadian court in illes behalf agalmit Ritchie. The sec- ond Is that of Henry Hilton and others vs. Ountavus Ii. Cleyot, from the United. States circuit court of the southern dis- trict of New York, affirming a decision again/it Hilton, successor to A. T. Stew- art & Co., for the sum of $280,863. In the latter can Guyot appears as the official liquidator of the affairs of the firm of Charles Fortin & Co., glove manufactUrere. It appears that In VW Stewart & Co. entered into an agree- ment with Fortin & Co. to sell in this country all the gloves the French firm could manufacture and to divide the profits equally. In 1879 there was a dis- agreement and the French firm sued the New York house in the tribunal of commerce of Paris and obtained a judgraknt. The case was appealed to the Paris court of appeals, but the judgment was affirmed. In the mean- time Stewart & Co.had clotted the house which they had hitherto maintained in Paris and sold their property there. The Paris firm then entered suit in the federal court of New York and asked for the execution of the decree of the French manta maintaining the suffi- clehey of the judgments of the foreign courts. Their judge gave a judgment tor the full amount Hilton & Libby, as sucoessors of Stewart & Co., then brought the case to the supreme court of the United States, where it was twice argued for Guyot by Messrs. William C. Choate and William D. Chupnian, and by Mailers. J. C. Carter had allihu Root for Hilton & Libby. Enormous Interests are involved in (ho decision. It is said judgments to the amount of 616,000,000 have been ren- dered in the Canadian courts alone against American °Wiens, the validity of which depends upon the decision in these cases. The lawyers Wed there Is scarcely any doctrine of law which. so far as regard. formal and exact statements, is in a more uncertain con- dition than that relating to the force and effect of the judgments of courts rendered on one nation by the courts of another. Many decisions have been rendered in England, but they appear to have left the question in an Involved and confused condition. Meows Carter and Root laid down the proposition in their argument on the Hilton case that the question of the conclusiveness of a foreign judgment depends upon the dr- Ottmstances under which it was ren- dered. Where it was not so conclusive as to - preclude inquiry into the original merits of the controversy, then the state Is under its ordinary obligation to the party demandtng the inquiry to give him at least one full and fair op- portunity Of having his cause adjudi- cated upon its original merits. This opportunity, they claim, was denied them In this case. It is understood that a decision has bini reached by the court In the case, tut it is not known whether the opinion of the court has been prepared or when It will be handed down. It is not con- sidered probable, however. that the court will again allow the matter to go over through a recces.
