ALLEN'S ASSAILANTS. Casey and Gordon Tell Their Stories in Court. Strong Evidence of the Complicity of Dive-Keeper Smith—Gordon a Remarkable Witness. The announcement that the examina tion of the cowardly ruffians who are charged with the assault and robbery of Robert Allen, on the morning of the 11th inst., was to take place yesterday at tracted an immense crowd to the Police Court. All wore eager to get a glimpse of the thugs, and those who succeeded in squeezing into the dingy and dark little oourt-room had their wishes gratified. The examination of dive-keeper Smith, who is alleged to have told Gordon, Ha ley and Casey about Allen's habits, and planned the robbery, was taken up first. Smith occupied a seat between his attor neys, Hiram Johnson and Frank Esta brook, and appeared to be in the best of humor, affecting to look upon the whole matter as a joke. It began to look like ralher a serious joke, however, before the clay's proceedings were over, and Smith's 3ountenaoce and de...

THIRTY YEARS AGO. The Showalter-Piercy Duel, Fought in Marin Caunty. The Roadside Skirmish Out Near the Cosumnes—The Orecon Aleck and Diisliaway Race. On the 25th of May, 1861, Charles W. Piercy and Dan Showalter, members of the Assembly, fought a duel in Marin County, and Piercy was killed. He was the challenging party. The prelimina ries were arranged in Sacramento, before the legislators had left the city. The difficulty had its origin at the time of the election of United States Senator, when Piorey rendered himself obnoxious to the Nugent wing by bolting the caucus, but was augmented by personal remarks during the debate on the Union resolu tions. Nugent's friends were behind Showalter at the duel. The parties were on the ground early, but Sheriff Dow and posse hove in sight and there was a stampede. Showalter was arrested, but Piercy and his friends and the friends of Showalter escaped and met at the residence of Charley Fairfax, near by, where arrangements were made to meet i...

6 WAKEMAN'S WANDERINGS. Brantwood, the Home of Ruskin, and Its Surroundings. An Unexpected Visit to Eomraany Friends In a Quaint Gypsy Camp Near Bowness and "VYindermere— A Bed of Sweet Rushes. [Spaci&l Correspondence of the Record- Uniok. Copyright, 1891.] Bowness, England, May 19,1891. The entire year of 1888 was passed by me in wandering among the peasantry of Ireland, with the exception of a few day's visit with friends in northern Lancashire, England. Journeying from Carnforth to TJlverston I entered a railway carriage in ■which sat a man muffled to his ears in wraps and rugs. My presence, and especially my having left open the window of the close com partment, made him uneasy. He snorted and fidgeted for a time, conveying, by un deniable token, his intense displeasure. Then, making a deliberate grab at the window strap, he hurled the sash back in its place with a crash, and, as he gave his wrappings a tempestuous swirl to replace them, snarled at me: "Do all Americans live...

UNEXPLAINED. "All ghost stories may be explained," «ud Mrs. Marchmont, smiling rather scornfully, and addressing a largo circlo of friends and neighbors who, one Christ inas evening, were seated round her hos pitable hearth. "Ah! you think so? Pardon me, if I cannot agree with you," said Mr. Henni kor, a well-known Dublin barrister of burly frame and jovial countenance, famed for his wit and flow of anecdote. The ladies of the party uttered ex clamations in various keys, while the men looked attentive and interested. All that Mr. Henniker was pleased to say was wont to command attention, in Dub lin at least. "So you think all ghost stories may be explained. What would Mrs. March mont say to our old woman in the bluok bonnet, Angela?" And the barrister turned to his quiet little wife, who rarely opened her lips. She was eager enough now. "I wish I could quite forget that old woman, John, dear," she said, with a shiver. "Won't you tell us, dear Mrs. Henni ker? Please —please do!" crie...

8 PATRIOTIC PUPILS. They Honor Memorial Day With Ap propriate Exercises. What Was Done at a Number of the Public Schools In this City on Yesterday. The entertainment at the Sacramento Grammar School yesterday forenoon was very largely attended. The exercises "were exceedingly well rendered, and the pupils taking part therein were warmly applauded. The entertainment was given for the purposo of raising money with which to purchase a carpet for the stage in the large assembly room. The teachers felt that a covering for the floor of the platform would greatly improve its appearance, but they did not wish to ask the School Board for the means, and concluded to earn the necessary funds by giving an entertainment. To say that their efforts were successful, would be expressing it lightly. The assembly room ■was crowded. Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers and friends of the pupils were there, and only too glad to contribute to the laudable object. The recitations, piano solos and vocal due...

BURIED UNDER FLOWERS. The Graves of Veterans Made Beauti- ! ful With Roses. Memorial Day and Its Observance in ! Sacramento—Newton Booth's Tribute to tho Dead. Decoration Day dawned with threat ening clouds in the sky, and in the early part of the forenoon a light sprinkle of j rain began to fall. There were occasional \ showers until 1 o'clock, when a heavy Storm set in, and for a time it was thought , that the street parade by the Grand Army j posts, and militia would have to be j abandoned. The military were assembled at the Armory promptly at half* past 1 o'clock, but as the rain was falling heavily it was deemed prudent not to order the men out at that time. In half an hour, however, the shower abated, and the Brigade Staff, Signal Cor; >s and Kegiment marched up L street to Tenth, the starting place. The Grand Army posts had also been await ing a cessation of the rain, and upon tho arrival of the military the parade was at once started. The streets wero very muddy, and it w...

San Francisco, M:\y £L —Tho Sacra mento team won both games from Oak land to-day. The morning rontest at Knieryvillo was closely played, and the pitching on both sides was so strong that little safe lifting was done. Works did most of the hitting for his side. Britten's error was very cosily, mid was partly ro spon.sible for Oakland's defeat. The score was: Sacramento <i, Oakland 3. 1m the afternoon the Senators assumed the lead ai the start. In tho iourth in ning:, with two men on bases, Bardic knocked out a pretty home-run drive, and tied the score.

SMITH HELD FOR TRIAL. Conclusion of the Sensational Case in the Police Court, Gordon, Another of the Atlon Tlihrs, j Is Held to Answer Too—Brady Tells His Story. The preliminary examination of J. D. Smith, the dive-keeper, charged with complicity in the robbery of Robert Al len, was resumed in the Police Court yesterday morning, and again the place was crowded almost to suffocation. Smith has lost much of his careless air, and seemed to be more interested in the proceedings yesterday than heretofore. It evidently does not appear to be so much of a joke to him now. Smith occupied a seat between his attorneys, Messrs. Hiram Johnson and Frank Kstabrook. Gordon and "Piggie" Johnson were there, and the former, as usual, was the center of attraction. Brady, the informer, was there, too, and was the recipient of Irequent dark scowls from Gordon ami Smith. City Attorney Hart conducted the pros ecution. District Attorney Ryan and Police Captain Lee sat close to him and counseled with him. JO...

4 FARM AND ORCHARD. No More Oxide of Zinc in Evapo rated Apples. Growing and rattening Swine on Clover—Early Hearing of Fruit Trees—General Farm Notes. Our readers will recall the action of the German Government in regard to alleged discovery of oxide of zinc in evaporated apples two years ago, and which was made a pretext to discriminate against our products. It was assumed that the process of bleaching the fruit bright caused the ground of complaint. Careful investigation made by our own Govern ment departments, however, soon proved that no injurious admixture of any foreign substance entered into the fruit. A searching investigation at various evaporating establishments showed that minute fragments of metallic zinc could be traced, and further search solved the cause. It had been the practice, for rapidity of labor, to scrape the fruit off the trays after evaporating it, and the in strument most convenient and almost universally used was the ordinary steel trowel, and occasionall...
