This is especially the case In I'odolia and

The llehrlng Hea Arbitration.
Paris, April 6. The morning session
of the Behrlng sea court of arbitration
today was dull, and even the eloquence
of such leaders at Attorney-Cieneral
Russell aud J. C.Carter failed to awaken
interest. Even the members of the
court seemed bored, and it was noticed
that the august head of Sir John Thomp
son, one of the British arbitrators, fre
quently nodded and suggested the aw
ful suspicion that he was tempted to
slumber. Sir Charles Rnssell concluded
bit argument in reply to the objections
of Hon. E. J. Phelps, counsel for the
United States, to the leu-al character of
certain, evidence offered by Great
Britain. E. J. Carter then proceeded to

A MURDERER LYNCHED
The San Bernardino Fiend Kilhi oy an
TOOK HIS DEATH VEKY COOLLY.
Asked fur a Cigarette Just Bofore He
Swung Off No Attempt Made
to Identify the Mob.
San Bkbnabdino, Cal., April 7.
About 1 o'clock this morning large
body of men marched to the county jail
and called on Jailer Brown, who .slept
inside, to come forth and unlock the
door. The latter refused aud warned
the crowd not to attempt an entrance.
The crowd, finding Brow n would not un
lock the door, secured a largo iron girder,
which they used as a battering ram in
an attempt to break down the
door. The jail it new and the door with
stood thsir efforts, and their attention
wat turned to tho window, and, after a
few attempts, the ban were broken and
an entrance trained. Inside chisels and
ham men were brought into requisition
and the doors of the cell of Fuen the
double murderer, were forced open, and
Fuen wat taken out and marched to the
railway bridge across Warm Creek and
hanged. There was no excitement, and
but a few of the mob were masked. The
murderer took matters coolly, offering
no resistance, and just before being
swung off requested a cigarette, which
was given him, and he smoked in ap
parent unconcern. There it a general
feeling ofatisfactlon, as he undoubtedly
deserved hit fate. '
Before beingstrung up he was given an
opportunity to say the last wordB
through an interpreter. He said he was
'brought to bit present condition by
whihky ; that hit wife had w ronged him,
and that he bad killed her and tha i he
waa ready to die. When asked what
Uoldcoffer had done to him, he said that
he had shot at him. The end of the
rope waa then made fast to the bridge
and the murderer was twung off Into
eternity at 2:30 o'clock. The crowd was
orderly through the whole transaction.
Some one fired a shot at the body as it
swung from the bridge, but the leaders
of the mob at once put a stop to it, de
claring that whoever repeated it would
himself be shot. It it stated this morn
ing that the leaders of the mob are
known, and that an investigation will
be had, but up to the present time no
move in that direction bat been made.
The coroner's inquest held on the
body of Jesus Fuen, the murderer who
wat lynched by a mob last night, found
that he came to hit death by hanging at
the hands of parties unknown to the
jury. No attempt waa made to discover
who the leaders of the mob wtre, and it
It even rumored that two or three of the
coroner's iurv were participants in the
hanging bee. The talk of arrests is
dying out. Though a few of the mob
wore masks, they are well known to
hundred of spectators.

the meant and inclination to aid a work
of such importance. The entlreesiense
of the expedition will be about 25,OK),

It appears the United States consulate

Bi-ffai.0, X. Y., April 7. Right Rev
William Stevens Perry, Bishop of Iowa
lust night preached the first of a series
of Columbian sermons at St. Paul's
church. He said be owed nothing to
Columbus, Spain or Rome for the dis
covery, which belonged to John Cabot,
who sailed under the patronage of King
Henry VIII, and that the discovery was
made in defiance of Pope Alexander
VII. The sermon was strictly anti
Columbian and anti Romanism, and has
created considerable excitement.
The Alaaka Boundary.
Ottawa, Ont., April 7. A joint sur
vey of the territory adjacent to the
boundary line of the United States and
the Dominion between the territory of
Aluska and the province of British Co
lumbia and the Northwest Territory of
Canada, with a view to a permanent
relimitation of boundaries, is about to
begin. The turvey is to be made in
pursuance of an agreement between
Canada and the United States reached
at the Washington conference, and
under an international commission con
sisting of T. Mendenhall, superintendent
of the coast and geodetic survey of the
United States, and W. F. King, astrono
mer and surveyor of Canada. Mr. King
left today for iaska with a party of
nine surveyors. Two of these will be
detailed to accompany the party of nine
surveyors, w ho are now leaving Wash
ington for AUAa to rejwrt on their
work, and two of the American survey
ors will be aetanea to accompany me
Canadian party. A joint report will be
drawn up, and separata reports of the
points of disagreement. The treaty of
St. Petersburg of 1823 defines the east
ern boundary of Alaska as "the summits
of mountains parallel to the coast," and
the two important questions are to agree
a to the summits referred to In the
treaty, and to define what is the coast.
The work will take two seasons.
Sak Fbancisco, April 7. Reports re
ceived from 40 points in all parts of Cal
ifornia indicate that thia state will
have bountiful crops this year. In San
Joaquin valley, the great wheatraising
district of the state, the crop will be
unprecedented in size. The rains have
been bountiful and timely, and a larger
acreage than ever before planted. In
the Sacramento valley another great
heatraislng district, the reports are
not so favorable. It ia estimated there
will be only half an average crop this
year on account of continued cold and
rainy weather and smaller acreage
planted to wheat. In Southern Califor
nia a large yield of grain is expected, as
the conditions in that section have been
favorable. Fruit in all parts of the
state is doing well except apricots, which
will fall far short of an average crop.

New Yobk, April 8. The Herald's
Valparaiso correspondent cables that
ie has investigated the report that a
United States consulate in Peru had
been attacked by a mob, for which an
apology hat been demanded by the
United States government. He says
the attack was mainly directed against
Free Masonry. He says the correspond'
ent at La Paz telegraphed him the fol
lowing account of the affair:
"Murch'.27th"a party .of American stu-
dentt who were on the way to the Chi
cago fair, attended the funeral of Senor
Cazardia, a Chilian merchant of La
Pax. The funeral aervices were held in
the Masonic temple. This enraged the
anti-Masonic populace, who attacked
the building. They were armed with
revolvers and Etones. The attendants
at the funeral were driven out and the
ceremonies were suspended. The mob
then set the building on fire and it was
burned to the ground. The residence
of Senor Mendez, a cuBtom-house offi
cial, who whs believed to sympathize
with the Masons, was sacked and
bnrned. Six soldiers fired on the mob
and wounded several of the rioters; but
the authorities on the whole remained
inactive. The attack was mainly di
rected against Free Masonry. There
were no attacks upon or demonstrations
of any kind against the American con

Bakes City, Or., April 7. McCarty's
b; at Haines wag searched, and to
the great surprise of the officers no trace
w as found of Tom and Bill, the bank
robbers. Finding the horses near is
looked upon as a ruse adopted by the
fugitives to throw the detectives off their
guard. They could have been secreted
in the vicinity and perhaps are awaiting
a favorable opportunity to get aut of the
country by rail, as great difficulty would
be experienced on horseback, as the
streams are badly swollen. The ro
ported capture of Kid McCarty at
Boise City ia not true. He is supposed
to be in Arizona. Eck McCarty is now
in jail here, who assisted Bill aud Torn
to escape. He killed a man with a cork
screw in a variety theater in this city
two years ago.
