VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 146. PACIFIC COAST NEWS Insurance Men at Red lands in a War of Rates. FATE OF A MURDERER. Thirty Years at San Quentin for the Slayer of a Colton Man. TO LEAVE FOR THE BERING SEA. Four Revenue Cutters Receive Orders to Sail for Northern Waters. REDLANDS, Cal., May 4.— The insur ance war reached Redlands this morning, and to-night property can be protected at a price but little in excess of the cost of the paper on which the policies are writ ten. It is a war to the death between the rival companies. Many general agents arrived in town yesterday to superintend the fight which has been brewing for some time, and which gave promise of being speedily pre cipitated. At once rates were cut in two on merchandise and on brick blocks, and three-quarters of the original rate was knocked off our residence property. There was a rush to secure policies and nearly every property -owner in town can celed his old ones. The local men formed a combination and induced many to ac cept...

Many poor people, who have here tofore refrained from giving their mite, came forward and put their $1 and similar small contributions into the hands of Sec retary Henderson. As the meeting progressed the crowd in creased, until every bit of available space in the big outside of the band stand and speakers' platform, was tilled. They came from all directions to show how glad they were that the Valley road was really coming to Stockton, and that the long-deferred hopes of the residents of the mill city were at last to be realized. Chairman Buell presented the agree ment, signed by the officials of the road, and explained the nature of the compact entered into. Mrs. Joseph Badger, secretary of the Ladies' Committee, presented a report showing that the ladies had by their labors raised .$2851 50 toward the cash fund for the road.

4 GET A "JACKETING" Cleveland and Palmer Roasted by Silver Champions. DEMOCRATS ARE RILED. They Object to the Peculiar Doctrines of the President. BRYAN APPLIES THE LASH. Leaders Who Vigorously Oppose Bowing to the Dictatorship of Grover. CHICAGO, 111., May 4.-President Cleveland and Senator John M. Palmer each received a "jacketing" at the hands of ex-Congressman W. J. Bryan of Ne braska, at the Democratic free silver county convention to-day, and as each of them was pulled over the coals, delegates signi fied their approval by round after round of applause. Comptroller of the Currency Eckles was also the target for Mr. Bryan's arrows, and his thrusts were evidently re garded as center-shots by delegates, as they yelled with delight. The convention adopted a 16 to 1 plat form out and out, and elected delegates to the Springfield convention. gJEx-Judge S. P. McConnell was made temporary chairman. He said during his speech: "The President of the United States, the man who was elected...

FOOLED THE ENGLISH Criticism of American Methods of Horse- Racing. BANQUET A GOOD THING. Tricks of the Turf That Are Too Deep for the Steady Britons. LATE GOSSIP FROM LONDON. Some Noted Paintings Viewed at the Public and Private Ex hibitions. LONDON, Esq., May 4.— The way the Americans are running their horses here lias begun to arouse criticism which prom ises to increase. It is impossible to ascer tain in advance what horses they intend to run in any event. The Sporting Times to day says : "The Americans played a bold game in entering a horse like Banquet to be sold for £200. Four thousand pounds went on him and the 'good thing' came off in fine style. He was bought in for £760, and, it is said, would not have beea sold for twice that amount. Simms was again seen to great advantage. There is no doubt he is really a fine horsen:nn. "The plunge on Banquet wa? the talk of the day, as we have become unaccustomed to such heavy betting. We can't say we wel come this return to a sort of ...

When the case of William Coleman was called in Judge Bahrs' court yesterday there ensued a little dramatic scene. This is the test case agreed upon to try the validity of the so-called "side-entrance" ordinance. Coleman wa? convicted in the Police Court of violating the ordinance and had been granted a new trial by Judge Bahrs. A few days ago the Union for Practical Progress passed some scathing resolutions condemning Judge Bahrs for, as believed, discharging Coleman, and intimating that the court was attorney for the liquor men's organization, entitled the California Protective Association, which made it dis creditable for him not to have transferred the <.■■■ Immediately the case came up Attorney - arose and glancing over his shoul der at Curtiss Hillyor, the associate coun sel of the District Attorney ...

"Wild Flower day" at the California Rose Show, in Maple Hall of the Palace Hotel, called together yesterday a large throng of Eastern visitors and residents of San Francisco. Beautiful specimens of the native Sowers from the bay counties and the far-away hills of Butte and Shasta lent spei ial charm to the display. There were also many varieties of the wild flower from Santa Cruz and Monterey. The chief ex hibitora are Mrs. W. S. Chandler, Mrs. Bailey and Mrs. T. L. Walker of San Fran cisco. Owing to their energy and zeal in the cause the greatest number of wild flowers ever collected for a single exhibi tion was displayed. At the Midwinter Fair a year ago 289 varieties were shown, bul the present show offers 300 varieties. The collection embraces one undetermined species of the "Bleeding Heart." t The rare ...

RARE BOULEVARD TREES Some Suggestions Concerning the Prospective Avenue to San Jose. PALMS AND AHAUCARIAS. j The Choicest Spring - Flowering Trees of America and Japan. • In all probability an era of tree-planting for ornamental purposes on a large scale; is about to commence in California, espe cially in the bay conn tiea, and for avenue ; purposes. Indeed, the proposal to make a ! PAULOWNIA IMPEEIALES. superb winding boulevard along the foot hilis from San Francisco to San Jose nec essarily leads to a consideration of the most desirable flowering trees proper for such a purpose. It is also likely that if such a boulevard were constructed the eastern 6ide of the bay would soon be able to continue it from San Jose to Oakland, as was suggested about forty years ago by the father of Senator John L. Beard of Alameda County. Almost the first thought that occurs when reference is made to such an im mense boulevard is that it offers a unique opportunity for planting a large variety of ver...

THE WONDERFUL CLOCK OF TOULON W.C MORROW A month had passed since the murder of the rich, miserly and feeble old widow in her lonely cottage near the Park, and Develle. the pale and scholarly young man who had killed her for her money, began to grow easier in mind as the efforts of the police to find the criminal relaxed, and then came altogether to an end. So in genious had been the plan of the murder, and so accurate its execution, that only an accident could have revealed him as its author. There was but one point upon which his mind held any uncertainty— whether or not he had even been sus pected. The unrelaxing watchfulness •which he kept upon his circumstances had revealed what he feared was a veiled police observation of his movements, beginning about a week after the tragedy; but he reasoned that, making allowance for his anxiety over the frightful dangers which encompassed him, he had really no great cause for fear, and could not do better than be open and free in his condu...

Alarmed at Mrs. Daunton's failure to rejoin them Leale had tossed the reins tv his orderly, and. leaving Mrs. Farrar seated in the sleigh, hurried into the building in search of her. It was a prostrate, sense less form he found close to the inner door, and only after a deal of trouble did she revive. Greatly alarmed. Mrs. Farrar had caused her to be driven straight home, and there the doctor came, and Ellis and min istering angels without stint and ques tioners without number, but meantime, . with wrathful fare, had gone to his troop quarters and summoned his iirst sergeant. Graice had not been with the men at dinner, was that worthy's prompt report. He was at the post exchange eat ing sandwiches and drinking beer at that moment, and Leale sent for him. Something had tended to sober the man, for he came into his captain's presence looking sullen, but self-possessed.
