LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Municipal Officials Who Had to Pay Their Poll Taxes. THE FABIOLA FETE PLANS. Baptist Ministers Express Confi dence In Rev. J. George Gibson. ' Yesterday was warrant day in the Au ditor's office for City officials, and many went there almost trembling for fear their precious orders on the treasury would be withheld in consequence of the notice served on the Auditor by Assessor Dalton not to give out warrants until the recipi ents had paid their poll-tax. They were ably disappointed, however, when their warrants were handed out without eeable questions being asked. When they went to the Treasurer's office for checks on the bank where municipal : inds are kept their smiles changed to frowns, for there, behind the desk, stood Deputy Tax Collector Foster, waiting for his metallic pound of flesh, as it were. Treasurer Gilpin heeded the notice of the Assessor, and those who could not show a poll-tax receipt for 1895 were in formed that they must put up the neces sary $2...

12 CASHIER SMITH MISSING McGlauflin and Co.'s Book keeper Mysteriously Dis appears. HIS ACCOUNTS ARE STRAIGHT. His Wife Thinks He Has Been Mur dered—The Police Differ From Her. C. S. Smith, confidential bookkeeper for L. W. McGlauflin & Co., grain merchants, 309 California street, has been missing since Sunday at 2 o'clock. A little before that hour Mr. Bresse, who is a member of the firm, went into his office and then found young Smith hard at work arrane ing the accounts and checks necessary for the next day's business. Since that hour he has not been seen, and there is abso lutely-no clew to his whereabouts. The coat, hat, vest and cuffs worn by him when he left home Sunday morning at 10 o'clock were found in the office neatly folded up, as though he expected to don them again as soon as the day's work was finished. On the copying book was found a small spot of blood of decidedly fresh appearance. The police hold to the theory that Smith was short in his accounts, and thought...

VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 142. THE PACIFIC SLOPE Insurance Agents in a Rate-Cuttingr War at Hollister. ALASKA LIQUOR SEIZED. The Cutter Corwin Loses a Man by the Capsizing of a Boat. TROUBLE IN WARDNER MINES. Losses Sustained by Sealing Schoo ners—New Steamers for the China Trade. HOLLISTER, Cal.. April 30.— Insurance rates went downward with a startling rush 'yesterday, and to-day almost every busi ness house in town was reinsured at cuts ranging from 50 to 60 per cent. The insurance men are engaged in a war of extermination, and property-owners ■who did not rush to secure poli cies on to-day's cut may have an opportunity within the next few days of getting insured for little more than the cost of the paper on which the policy is written. The war was started yesterday by the arrival of an a-^ev.t of the Commercial Union, who immediately announced that he intended to insert the knife into in- surance rates. The local board determined to force him out, and placed the rates so low that so fa...

2 ANSEL WHITE'S GIFT. How the Eccentric Old Rancher Repaid Kind Treatment. LEFT SEVERAL WILLS. Relatives Will Not Share the $4,000,000 Fortune He Inherited. CLAIMANTS FOR THE ESTATE. Two Men Who Hold Deeds for All the Property of the Dead Man. TORT TOWNSEND, Wash., April 30.— Despite the fact that relatives have learned the fate of Ansel White, who was wanted in New York to establish a claim to a fortune of $4,000,000, it is highly probable, if a story told here to-day is true, that the sixteen remaining relatives will find some difficulty in securing a distribution. White came to Puget Sound in 1878, and took up a farm in Clallam County, where he resided until his demise in the summer of 1888. Among his neighbors was a young fellow named Wooding, who lived with his wife on an adjoining claim. These people were among the few whom White liked, and they became close friends and regular visitors. Eventually White deeded all this prop erty except a life interest, a small portion, to Woo...

REDS ARE RESTLESS . North Dakota Indians • . Resist Federal .; Officers. SETTLERS ARE AFRAID. . Assistance Is Requested to Settle a Threatened Outbreak. . CHIEF LITTLE SHELL DEFIANT. As Uncle Sam Has Not Paid for Lands His Braves May Cut the Timber. FARGO, N. Dak., April 30. — "United States Marshal Cronan received the follow ing dispatch from Deputy Chandler at St. Johns to-day: "Between 200 and 300 hostiles are at Lan gan preparing to resist. Citizens and set tiers are leaving St. Johns through fear. If you come at all bring assistance enough to quiet disturbances and protect settlers." It had been stated that the Indians had burned the houses of settlers who had testified against them. On running the Story down it appears that but one case of that kind had occurred. The Marshal and his deputy had a council with the Indians Vrho had previously rescued a half-breed, charged with cutting timber on Govern ment land, from arrest, and told him they had come there to arrest the parties ...

4 JAPAN VERY DEFIANT. Denies Russia's Right to Interfere in Any Way. SERIOUS CRISIS EVIDENT. Believes the Czar's Forces in the East Are Not Powerful Enough to Respect. WARSHIPS ARE ASSEMBLING. Having Vanquished China, the Mi kado Has More Powerful Nations to Contend With. LONDON, Ex©.. April 30.— The Times to-morrow will publish a dispatch from Kobe, dated April 26, saying there is no mistaking the fact that there is evidence of a serious crisis in the relations between Japan and Russia. But the Japanese press has been forbidden to refer to it, and four newspapers of Tokio, including the semi official Nichi Nicfai, have been suspended for reporting the fact that a secret council of Ministers was held. The other news papers in which references to the crisis appeared are defaced. Continuing, the correspondent says: "Information reaches me from a reliable source at Hiroshima that the Ministry has adopted a resolute attitude against Russian dictation. They deny Russia's right to interfe...

THEIR REQUEST DENIED. Durrant's Counsel Wanted a Discharge or Release on Bail. OTHERS VISITED THE BELFRY. Strange Remarks Which Were Made by the Janitor's Son— Lamont Inquest. The tower of the Emmanuel Baptist Church was not the lonely, deserted spot which those believe who argue that Theodore Durrant must be guilty of two murders because they assume that he possessed exclusively familiar acquaint ance with the hidden nooks and corners of that edifice. There is evidence to show that not only were half a hundred others visitors to the now haunted .belfry but tiieir visits were so frequent as to become a source of annoyance. Half way up the stairs which lead from the Celebrated tower door to the belfry, where Blanche Lamont's body was found, is a small opening, perhaps a foot square, •which lights the interior. ;■■■"; A shutter swinging inward serves to •close the aperture in stormy weather, but ..■usually it stands wide open.

The need of a better City Government is now laid bare in every department. Some people get into the social swim who haven't sense enough to get out of the wet.

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS The Wheelmen Turn Out in Great Numbers for the Parade. ARREST OF CAPTAIN HUNT. He Desired to Speak on Topics of the Day Without a Permit. Captain F. W. Hunt, who is a veteran of the war and a bit of a politician and phil osopher, spent last night in jail because of • sire to show that the ordinance against street meetings was not intended as religious persecution. The captain, who mends watches, electrical machinery or anything else that comes his way in his little Eighth-street shop, had heard remarks to the effect that the arrest of the Salvation Army and "Cowboy" Rice and his wife was intended to suppress open air religion, and said that he would prove that any one could get arrested under the ordinance. So last evening he announced from the curb at the corner of Tenth and Broadway that he ■would speak on the topics of the day. He had scarcely begun when a stalwart minion of the law demanded his permit to speak to a crowd on the public thorough fares, and none...
