The Train Brought to a Standstill Within a Few Feet of the Wreckers' Obstructions. PASADENA, Cal., April 26.— Miss Lou V. Wilson, a 20-year-old heroine, frustrated a dastardly attempt to wreck the passenger train leaving Pasadena on the Southern California Railway at 7:23 o'clock last night.

The Statement That There Is an Insufficiency of Food Declared to Be Unwarranted. SAN DIEGO, Cal., April 26.-The funeral of Coxswain Johnson of the cruiser Olympia yesterday afternoon was attended by about seventy men, in charge of one officer from the ship. On the way out to the cemetery seven sailors suddenly broke ranks and fled. None were recap tured, but one of them was seen on the streets about 11 o'clock this morning. He had been in hiding all night until that hour, and was under the impression that the ship had just sailed. When lie was in formed that he was wrong, and that the sailing hour had been changed to this evening, he at once prepared to get out of sight again, saying: "I would rather go to the desert and starve' than go on board the ship again."

From the cables so far received by Dr. Guzman he is of the opinion that the limit of time was tap at midnight last night, but in the ab sence of an...

WOLFE IS QUESTIONED ABOUT THE MURDER He Wore Garments Like Those Worn by The odore Durrant. I HIS HAT WAS SIMILAR. George R. King Tells What He Knows About the Death of Miss Williams. THE PRISONER GROWS ANGRY. He Issues Orders to His Keepers, and Will Lose His Privileges In Consequence. Dark coats with long skirts and slouch hats, the fashion of the day, played another important part in the Durrant hearing yesterday. It was noticed by close observers among the spectators that when Elmer Wolfe was called to the witness-stand yesterday morning he wore a long dark blue over coat similar to that worn by Durrant on the fatal Friday night and which now reposes among the gruesome articles which have gone to constitute the people's exhibits. It became patent that the coin cidence did not escape the lynx-like eyes of Deuprey and Dickinson, for as soon as the witness was turned over to them by the prosecution Mr. Deuprey asked Wolfe to remove his coat in order that a comparison could be made ...

under construction, and it is the intention of the society to have picnic grounds. Parties returning from fishing excur sions report small catches. In the more remote streams in the county the water is too high, and then the scarcity of fish seems greater than any previous year. For the last five or six years the game laws have been knowingly violated, and the dynamiting of fish, which has been going on at all seasons of the year, has about ex hausted the supply. in the San Felipe and Ysabel the fish have been almost en tirely exterminated and parties returninec from there this week say they never before paw the creeks so utterly depleted. The Los Gatos and Guadalupe, being easier of approach, have been well iished, and while •quite a number of fish are caught they are mostly fingerlings. Game Warden Mackenzie visited the dif ferent streams during the week and super vised the erection oi fish-ladders at the different points where needed.

The Board of Education will be asked at its next meeting to introduce into the schools a new national song, "The Golden Corn," which has been sung for some time past in the p*ublic schools of Boston and New York.

TO INCREASE THE FORCE Members of the Police Com- mission Approve Crow- ley's Request. MOUNT OUTLYING OFFICERS. Commissioner Alvord Would Estab- lish a Police Station Near the Park. When Chief Crowley asks the Board of Supervisors to add 125 policemen to the present force he will have the unanimous support of the members of the Board of Police Commissioners. These gentlemen have long regretted the small number of men available and have continually dreaded the arising of some emergency for which the present force shouid prove insufficient. The commissioners believe that the Su pervisors will largely increase the number of patrolmen, though some doubt whether the full number asked for will be granted. '•The power to enlarge the police force, said Commissioner Alvord last night, "lies, of course, with the Supervisors, and any action we might take would be simply ad visory. 'Personally, I should favor a large in crease in the number of policemen. The city is growing and the police force ...

EPINAL, France, April 27.— The enor mous reservoir near here burst to-day, in- undating many villages in the district and drowning many people. So far thirty eight bodies have been recovered. The damage to property is tremendous. The Great Bousey dyke of the Epinal district of Yosges, it now appears, burst at • 5 o'clock this morning. The cubic area of the dyke is 8,000,000 meters.
