WHEELMEN ARE AROUSED They Will Make a Concerted Effort to Secu re Good Streets. BETTER PAVEMENTS WANTED. The Fight May Include the Team sters Also, and It Will Be a Political One. The wheelmen have determined that this City must have decent pavements, and •within a week their campaign .of action •will be started, and their plans matured. Among bicycle - dealers Los • Angeles ranks Bret as a wheelmen's town, Oakland second, San Jose third, and only when the fourth is mentioned does San Francisco, the metropolis, appear. " This is due in a great measure to the poor condition of the City's streets, arid the impossibility of using the wheel for business purposes, except to a very limited extent. To remove .this difficulty -it is plain that some improvement must be. made in the street pavements, and 'to' do this the wheelmen have started, an agita tion on their own account. The. first, step ■was taken \ by the Olympic- Wheel men last evening when • the subject was formally '. announced -...

8 FLIGHT OF A MURDERER Search of the Santa Clara Sheriff on the Steamer Gaelic. WAR NARROWLY AVERTED. The Assassin of Lum Dl Escapes. An Officer's Ignorance Saves Trouble. The Occidental and Oriental steamer Gaelic sailed for China and Japan yester day afternoon with very few passengers and a large volume of freight. Among the passengers we.re I. C, Grubb; Captain Bid del and Lieutenant William M. McKelvey, V. S. If. C, 6. Matsuo, Mrs. Lange and two children, and the Chevalier de Kontski for Yokohama, and Thomas M. Boyd for Yokohama. Just before the steamer sailed the Sheriff of Santa Clara County appeared on the dock and wanted to know where Chew Ah Fong was. There was nobody on the dock who could give the Sheriff the desired informa tion, so the officer went on board with a Chines* guide to point out the hunted man. The Sheriff and the Chinaman searched the ship and then went ashore with the firm conviction that the mur derer was on the steamer. ■•I have hunted the whole ship," sa...

SILVER FORGES AT WAR. Sibley's Presidential Boom Not Favored by the State League. HOT FIGHT IN CONSEQUENCE. The Result Is Rebellion and Seces sion in General Warner's National Party. Instead of the great results for free coin age aimed at, the visit to California of Gen eral A. J. Warner of Ohio, head of the American Bimetallic party, and Congress man Joseph C. Sibley of Pennsylvania, named by that organization for President in 1896, has apparently been productive of the opposite effect. The effect is the flat secession of the State Silver League from Genera! Earner's National organization. The State Silver League had its inception in a general convention at Los Angeles last December. Two months later a cau cus of Congressmen enthusiastic for re monetization met in Washington and acreed upon Mr. Sibley as> the Presidential nominee of the silver movement for the next campaign. The State League did not like this method of choosing a candidate, but as it was understood that General ...

4 HORNPIPE'S GREAT RUN Wins the Brooklyn Handicap Under the Pilotage of Hamilton. FAVOHITES ARE LEFT BEHIND. Noted Jockeys Make a Gailant Fight for Supremacy, but Their Horses Lack Speed. NEW YORK, N. V., May 15.— The first real trial of the new lacing law was had to-day at Gravesend, and as far as could be seen it is likely to become popular. The morning hours were anything but pleas ant, for a cold wiud blew across the track. The air was raw and chilly and the over cast sky made it seem as if rain might fall at any moment. The track was very muddy and there were pools of water all over it. The clouds began to break away at about 10 o'clock and there was plenty of blue sky by noon. The bookies had plenty of work to do, but they did not shout the odds, and the betting was done quietly. From 1 o'clock until the start of the handicap betting was in ordci, and Dr. Rice and Rainapo were about equal choices, though it finally set tled down with the latter as first choice. At 4:30 o'clock...

8 TRUE FRATERNAL WORKERS IN THE CAUSE OF HUMANITY. Ail five of the grand fraternal conven- j tioits got well into working order yester day and considerable business of import ance was transacted. One of them con cluded its labors. N i formany years has there been so much interest taken in the election of commander of the .Loyal Legion as this year. The rivalry arose between General "Wariield and Major Hooper, and the con test was carried on in a spirited manner. The opposing forces were marshaled with marked ability and the result was not j reached until every resource had been ex hausted on both sides. The election re sulted in the choice of Major Hooper by a vote of 110 to 22. During the day session the Odd Fellows' Grand Lodge acted on several important committee reports, and in the evening the initiatory and first degrees were conferred on a large number or candidates. Almost the entire day was occupied by the Rcbekah, Siate Assembly in listening to the report on the Odd Fellows...

10 A WORLD-WIDE TRUST It Is on the Eve of Consum mation by the Standard Oil Company. TEN YEARS IN CONTEMPLATION. Only the Sanction of the Russian Government Remains to Be Secured. If the Standard Oil Company succeeds in consummating the ?cheme it has been working on for the last ten years, the price cf petroleum wili, in all probability, take a jump that will pale into insignificance the recent advance made in that article. This is nothing less than a combination whereby the petroleum output of the world will be under the absolute control of the Standard Oil Company and of the Nobel Brothers of Sweden, who npw control the oil product of the great Laku wells of Russia and the European oil market. The trust has virtually been completed, and needs only the sanction rif the Russian Government to make it master of the sit uation.
