VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 85. PACIFIC COAST NEWS. Twelve Cantua Canyon Cattle-Thieves Under Arrest. THE LEADER NOT TAKEN. They Were Captured During the Night by Mendota and Fresno Officers. IMPRISONED AT HOLLISTER. HI Rapelje, Who Captured Evans and Sontagr, Was the Leader • of Both Posses. Fresno, March 4.— Hi Rapelje, the man who caught Evans and Sontag, returned this afternoon from the Cantua Canyon, where, with the help of the Mendota offi cers, he captured twelve cattle-thieves. For a year past the four Ashhurst broth ers, who have a large stock range there, have been losing cattle, amounting in all to about a hundred head, and a short time ago livestock and hides bearing their brand were found in a slaughter-house in this city. Hi Rapelje took hold of the case and dis covered that there was an organized band of thieves, a number of whom stole the cat tle and drove them part way to this city, where they were met by others of the gang who drove them here and sold them.

2 ances of hostility to Southern Pacific measure. During the skirmishing between the two factions, while the doors were closed, other arguments than those immaterial were brought forward. The sum at which votes were rated was extremely insignifi cant, however. One member was offered $100. Later $50 was added to this. He re mained obdurate, but the company did not make any further raise. * The scalpers' bill was the first on the Senate special file. This brought it up immediately after 2 o'clock. Dodge pro tested against it on the ground that it was not needed. "It is not called for," said he. "The people do not ask for it. Besides, the only portion of it that is for the people is the section forcing the railroads to re deem unused tickets, and I think that is unconstitutional.' ' Wade of Napa pointed to the fact that the fifth section of the bill provided for the imprisonment of a corporation. This, he thought, showed how utterly useless the bill would be.

WITH MUSIC, CHEERS AND CATCALLS. % Passage Into History ; of the Fifty-Third Con gress. PRESIDING OFFICERS PRAISED Politics Laid Aside in Both Houses and a. Love Feast Enjoyed. Washington, March 4.— At noon to-day, after a continuous session of forty-eight hours, interrupted by an occasional recess, the flags above the Capitol were lowered and the Fifty-third Congress had passed into history. In the House the end was not marked or marred by any unpleasant incident. All the appropriation bills were out of the way when the House convened at 8 o'clock this morning. The time was dwindled away until 11 o'clock, the only feature being a rather brisk debate on the results to follow from the projected mone tary conference. The usual committee was sent to the President to inform him that Congress was ready to adjourn and the other formalities of the end of a Congress were gone through with. The concluding minutes were in the nature of a love feast. The best of feeling prevailed. The resolu t...

THE SENATOR AND THE FLOWER GIRL. James G. Fair's Rumored In fatuation for a Los An geles Beauty. BOUGHT HER BOUTONNIERES. Herbert Clark, Valet of the Late Senator, Discredits / Miss Gamble's Story. The story from Los Angeles that the late Senator James G. Fair was in love with Sallie Gamble, the pretty flower-girl at the Nadeau Hotel, is only an other of the many romances in con nection with the life of the multi-mil lionaire which have never found confirma tion or denial. It is a fact, however, that the Senator knew the girl. This much Herbert Clark, who for twelve years served the late Senator as traveling companion, corresponding clerk and valet, admitted to a reporter yesterday. Mr. Clark has not been out of ths city Herbert Clark, Valet of the Late ex- Senator James G-. Fair. [From a photograph by Tfwrs.] lately.

8 KILEY'S SPRINTER WAS TOO SPEEDY. George f. Smith Downed Both Tim Murphy and Don Fu lano Cleverly. IN A VERY FAST RUN RACE. Big Things Were Expected of Ingomar, but He Finished Behind Rico. Yesterday was one of those "about broke-even" days at the track. Three favorites won, but in one race, the last, it ', is very doubtful whether or not one or two ■ of the outsiders did not carry* more money OH their chances than the favorite. All interest was centered on the third race, a six-furlong spin, in which those fast | sprinters Tim Murphy, George F. Smith and Don Fulano came together; all of the other starters declining the issue. The Don was the outsider, the plungers being divided in their choice between the roan sprinter and Smith. At post time it was "6 to 5 and take your pick on the two favorites," Don Fulano having 7 to 1 ; against him. When Ferguson sent them away George i F. Smith showed in front first, but Bergen ' took him back, allowing Carr to set the ■ pace with the roan h...

SHOOTING AT AN OAKLAND BURGLAR. Special Ayers Makes a Thief Relinquish His Stolen Silverware. A BOY BURNED TO DEATH. Thomas Crawford Is Chosen as Clerk of Police Judge • . "Woods' Court. A little after 3 o'clock yesterday morn ing three pistol shots rang out on the air on Alice street, between Twelfth and Tenth. Then there was a blowing of police-whistles, and soon a crowd of ofiicers had gathered to listen to the story, of the man who did the shooting, Special Officer A. T. Ayers. Officer Ayers said that he was patrolling his beat near Twelfth and Alice streets when he saw, opposite himself, a figure skulking along in the shadow of the house of G. A. Faulkner, from which it was ap parent the person had just emerged, as a dim light was seen to be burning in the house. Avers was on the opposite side of the street, and in the darkness 'could not tell whether the figure was that of a man or a woman.

12 A COMPETITOR IN COAST TRADE. The Whaleback City of Everett Arrive From Puget Sound. CARRIES COAL FROM COMOX. A Formidable Rival to the Local Liners— An Experimental Trip. The whaleback steamer City of Everett, of which much has been written since she was launched from the place the name of which she bears, arrived in port yesterday morning with 3300 tons of coal for the Southern Pacific Company. She is a curi ous specimen of marine architecture, and her arrival brought down great crowds to the water front to get a peep at her. She came from Comox, B. C, stopping at Port Townsend to take on board twenty-three passengers. She was eighty-four hours from the former place and sixty-two hours from Port Townsend. Among the City of Everett's passengers were: Captain Alex MacDougall. inventor of the whaleback and general manager of the American Steel Barge Company of New York; J. B.

VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 86. THE PACIFIC SLOPE Los Angeles Women Are Accused of Being Firebugs. THE PROOF IS STRONG. Mercenary Motives Alleged to Have Prompted Them in Their Act. INCENDIARISM AT SALINAS. Systematic Attempts to Burn the Town Believed to Be the . Work of One Person. LosT Axgei.es, March s.— Two women were brought in from Pico Heights this morning and arraigned before Justice Young on a charge of arson. For several years past mysterious fires have broken out in the Pico Heights dis trict, which is a suburb of this city. A little over a year ago ex-County Recorder John Francis was arrested on a like charge, but he-was able to prove at the trial that he was not the incendiary who was operating in the neighborhood. Now Mrs. Amelia Piatt and Mrs. Knox, her sister, are in custody under a charge sworn to by Minnie Dunham. The houses of both the defendants were burned down not long since, and Minnie Dunham accuses the women of destroying their own property for the purpose of get ti...

The House Refuses to Adopt His Amendments Relating to Hum boldt County. \ : ;f.J'-z: ;\ Sacramfvto, March 5. — Work was com pleted on the county government bill this afternoon. When the county government bill was taken up this morning there was no lack of amendments, but none occasioned any debate till the sections fixing the salaries of Humboldt County officials were reached. Then Bledsoe stood up and fired amend ments at the clerk. The salary of every official would have been lowered if he could have had his way. As each amend ment would go up he would assert posi tively that the people of his county wanted that particular salary lowered, and he recommended drops ranging from $200 to $600 a year. As regularly Assemblyman Johnson, also of Humboldt, would announce that the people thought the officer w...

Operations Against the Town of Baire, Held by the Insurgents.; .ANOTHER SIDE TO THE STORY- It Would Seem the Revolt Is Far More Serious Than Spain Will Admit. Madrid. March 5. — An official dispatch received here from Cuba says thirteen rebels belonging to the Marrero band have yielded. Dispatches received here from Cuba this evening say that Yaguey, the chief of a powerful band of brigands, which has been operating in the province of Matanzas, has yielded his submission. This, it is added, . puts an end to the uprising in that prov ince, which was the most formidable in th** whole island. General le Chambre has commenced operations against the town of Baire, which is occupied by the insurgents. In the province of Guantanamo only four rebel bands, numbering in all about 180 men, now exist.

Judge Slack overruled the demurrer to the filing of the supplemental petition of the executors of the Fair will yesterday. The supplemental petition, which tells the story of. the stealing "or abstracting" of the will and which offers a certified copy of the document and proof of the con tents of the will, is therefore allowed to go in. In this the counsel for the executors win the first point in the preliminary skir mish. Did any of the attorneys for the heirs file a contest of the will? No. Did they repeat once again with empha sis that they intended to file a contest of the will? Oh yes, indeed, with great emphasis, as though it were this time for the cigars. Did they say just when they would file the contest? Certainly not. "Would you have the lawyers commit themselves? Not in a hundred years. Were...

8 GRAY BRAW SCOT HONEST AS EVER. Barney Schrieber's Horse downed the "hot thing" Thelma Handily. SILVER FIRST AT 15 TO 1. The Plungers Had a Hard Time Keeping on the Top . Side. It was a red-hot battle that was waged between bookies and talent at the track yesterday, and to see the way the golden twenties of the West and the dark "long green" of the East were circulated at the betting ring an outsider would have thought Bill Cook and his gang of train robbers had arrived and were hastily try ing to dispose of some of their ill-gotten wealth regardless of- returns.! At the con clusion of the last race, when the enemy packed their tents and silently stole away, the advantage lay with the men that give the odds. Riley Grannan, Pittsburg Phil, Ed Purser and the other plungers had rather a tempestuous day. Two only of the five favorites finished in front, Royal Flush and Booze. The betting on the last race was a "scorcher." Thelma, with Griffin up and 7 to 10 against her, started the bal...
