14 ON DRIED FRUIT PRICES Movement Whereby Merchants and Growers May Stiffen the Market. AGAINST CONSIGNING EAST. By Holding the California Product It May Be Made to Con trol. The dried fruit season is marked by a strong movement among local commission men to prevent the waste of values. It is urged that under wild promises the grower is apt to consign his crop to Eastern houses, which simply reimburse them selves and disregard the true home inter ests of the? consignor. The local commis sion men say they can offer the grower fast as good terms as the Eastern houses, with the further assurance that, by dealing with them, the grower is helping to build up a firm market by which California dried fruit may control the markets of the world. The position local houses take is shown in a circular sent out by a prominent com mission merchant of this City and from which the folio wingi s an extract: We believe the joss to the producer hereto fore has been, to n. great extent, due to con signm...

16 KILLED IN THE RUINS OF THE OLD HULL "Yankee" Jim Wilkin son Falls From the Roof to Death. GAVE A WARNING CRY. Others Who Went Down With Him Escape Almost Miraculously. THE WALLS BULGED OTTTWARD. Two Men In the Building Attempt to Get Out by Jumping From the Windows. One man was killed and half a dozen men narrowly escaped a similar fate by the sudden collapse of the roof of the old City Hall about 10:30 o'clock yesterday morning. James Wilkinson, better known as "Yankee Jim, 1 ' met his death after being hurled headlong through a mass of falling timbers, flying bricks, laths and plaster, to be buried sixty feet below in the debris. Death was not instantaneous, the luckless man living long enough to recognize one of his companions, who had fastened to dig him out, before he breathed his last. Six men were on the roof at the time it gave way. They were J. J. Gumper, the foreman; Wilkinson, John Casey of 22 Trenton street, William Heffron of 305 Filbert street and N. Nelson. On the ...

DENVER, Cow., June 22.— The Califor nia athletes closed their career of victories in the East in a blaze of glory at the Den ver Athletic. Club's Park, defeating the representatives of the Denver Athletic Clnb by a score of 62 to 22.

Bicycle races hud been added to the programme to insure more interest to the sport, but they were unnecessary, as sufficient enthusiasm had been aroused by the regular events to attract the greatest crowd that has ever gathered in this city to witne...

EXPERTS ARE IN THE DARK It Is More Likely That Miss Mitchell Killed for Hatred Than for Love. , • ■ . - MEMPHIS, Tknn., June 22.— 0n a beautiful June day in 1592, Alice Mitchell, in charge of officers, after being adjudged a lunatic, was conveyed from Memphis to Bolivar, eighty miles away, and there con fined in the West Tennessee Asylum for the Insane. There is no doubt of her in sanity. Her last act was that of an insane person. Before leaving the city she was conveyed to Elmwood cemetery, where she scattered flowers over the grave of Freda Ward, whose throat she had cut a few months previous. This crowning of her murdered girl-sweetheart's grave would have unstrung any other person than Alice Mitchell, but her nerves are like iron. The asylum at Bolivar is a pleasant place. The officers are humane and the best possible provisions are...

A Woman Cremated in the Burn ing of a Steamer— Fatal Acci dent Near Daggett. SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 22.— Despite the stringent measures adopted by the citizens' committee, holds-up continue to be reported to the police. Albert Montain, a prominent hop-grower residing near this city, was waylaid on his way home last night on the outskirts by a masked man, who ordered him to throw up his hands. The sudden appearance of the man from a dense bunch of willows on the roadside frightened Montain's horse. The animal shyed and started to run. The highway man immediately fired a shot, which whistled in close proximity to Montain's head. As soon as he could control his animal Montain drove up to the residence of an Italian in the vicinity, procured a pistol and in company with the Italian returned to the scene of the ...

Desperate Contest Waged Between the First and Second Bat talions. UKIAH, Cal., June 22.— Camp Foster to-day was thronged with visitors and so was the town of Ukiah, as an excursion train of twelve cars brought visitors - from all stations from San Francisco north. The ball tendered last night to the of ficers of the regiment was a grand affair. Colonel • Macdonald, with Mrs. Senator Seawell, headed the grand march, which was an imposing sight under the electric lights. The gay uniforms of the officers, mingled with the pretty dresses of the ladies, made a beautiful picture as they glided through the lancers in the mazy waltz. Every one enjoyed himself, and the officers are loud in their praises of Ukiah's hospitable en tertainment and of the manner in which the ball passed off. • To-day the last dress parad...

MACDONOUGH WILL FILED He Leaves Nearly the Entire Estate in Trust to His Children. NOTHING GIVEN TO CHARITY. John M. Agar, the Son-In-Law, Will Have Exclusive Control of the Property. '.■ One of the most prolix wills ever filed in the County Clerk's office was that placed on record yesterday, disposing of the prop erty of the late Joseph "Macdonough, who died June 18. It is long and full of repe titions, and in the end creates a trust fund of the entire fortune. The boys will not have a hand in the management of the estate, and will only be allowed to handle their own share .of the income.which will be doled out to them by their brother-in law, John G. Agar. Agar and Mrs. Agnes M. Agar were named as executors and trustees, but with the tiling of the will and its accompanying documents was a renun ciation of her trust by Mrs. Agar and a nomination of her husband as her succes sor, as she had a right to do under the will, thus making him sole trustee and executor. He alone petitions f...

A PAGE FOR WOMEN The items of Information obtained for these articles are the result of a close perusal of such London papers as Queen and the Gentlewoman, and of standard Parisian papers like Le Revue de la Mode and Le Monlteur de la ' Mode. The German fashions are- not overlooked as Der Bazar is frequently consulted, so I can say positively that these articles may thoroughly be depended upon, as containing the very latest fashion news from the best sources. It seems as though the luxurious fashions •worn during the reign of Louis XVI would hold sway for some time to come, and in keeping, with them are the many extrava gant little 'additions to the toilette. A. while ago I mentioned the very beautiful handles which are sold for parasols, mak ing them very costly; now a jeweled handle is quite commonplace unless the parasol has its points jeweled.

16 ABRAHAM LINCOLN`S CLOSEST FRIEND .Hitherto Unpublished Reminiscences of Joshua Fry Speed; BY JOHN GILMER SPEED. Abraham Lincoln's one, close .and inti mate personal friend was Joshua Fry Speed of Kentucky. All of the biographers of Lincoln appear to agree as to this. The friendship began in 1837 and. lasted throughout Lincoln's life. Mr. Speed, who died in ISS2, was.a man of great reserve, and though often asked to write about Lincoln always refused Upon the ground that he bad not the literary capacity to do justice to such a subject. He was, how ever, consulted by the biographers care ful enough to seek original sources of in formation, and usually gave to such in quirers what facts and documents he had in his possession. Once, however, in 1874, i I, think, Mr. Speed prepared a lecture on Lincoln to be read before some of his friends, and from this I shall make ex tracts and so let him tell the particulars of the friendship so far as possible. "In the spring of 1836," wrote Mr. ...
