James MoNary, a conductor on car
No. 61)5, of the Sixty-third street, lino,
hug sprung h new sensation in the
Holmes cum), by stating that Benjamin
F. Pituzol in alive, and that he reoent
ly talked with him on hi oar. Mo
Nary claims there could be no mtttako,
for ho worked nine monthn for Pituzol
and knows the peculiarities of bin
voice. Aooording to MoNary, Piteaiel
boarded his oar a few days proviooa to
Holmes' trial. Pitozol's beard had
grown around the greater part of bin
face, ho that be was completely dis
guised. When addrossod, however,
, ho admitted hia identity and asked aa
a friend that MoNary keep silent, for
ho was on hia way to Phiadelphia; but
MoNary oulled in Motorman Letterman
aud he, too, olaima that he had a con
versation with Pltezol, who took a
transfer to the Cottage Grove cable
Robert Corbott, who has been fol
lowing the oase for months in behalf
of the Farmers' & Merchants' National
bank, Fort Worth, claims he has also
Been Pitozol. He said to a Daily News
"I never believed Pitozol was dead,
for the following reasons: First, when
I was searching the 'oastle,' some
months bko, this man, who resembles
the one sceu by the conductor and mo
torinan. aud who, I then thought was
Pitezul, found me in the building look
inif over somo papers. He asked mo if
I had seen a toolohest. I told him
there was one in the front room. He
said that one was not his; that he had
left it in the room where I was engaged.
I asked him who he was. He said
Mrs. Pitoasol sont him thore for a tool
chest, and when I asked him his name
he said, after thinking a moment,
'Andrews,' and loft."

Lowistou, Idaho, Nov. 20. At noon
today over 1,500 settlers and miners,
who have long waited an opportunity
to take the broad prairies and the
promising mineral land on the Nez
Poroe reservation, put up their stakes,
posted their notices, and many began
an oxodas to the nearest land office to
register their claims.' There was no
rush to the interior. The journey to
the desired locations had been made
days beforo, without a sign of legal as
sistance, and the man who rode for
milus to see a mad rush from the
boundaries of the reserve, with the fir
ing of oannon and firearms, the shouts
and execrations of those who were
ahead and behind in the race for the
ooveted goals, was disappointed. Never
in rcoeut years has the opening of a
rich reservation to settlement been at
tended with less excitement than that
of the Nez Peroes.
The United States made absolutely
no provision to keep white men off be
foro the time indicated by the procla
mation, and there was unlimited op
portunity for those acquainted with the
laud to camp on the choloe tracts until
the noon hour and then rush baok to
enter their chosen quarter section.

circles were given a new insight into

The matter eame in the form of an au

Senator Thurston left this evening for
Washington. In an Interview he said:
"My resignation as general solicitor
of the Union Paoifio has been forward
ed to Judge Dillon in New York, and
will no doubt be presented to the re
oeivers in about a week. I have re
signed, not because of any real or ap
parent impropriety in acting as attor
ney for tbe receivers, but simply be
cause the duties of that position re
quire the whole time and attention of
tbe man who holds it.
"I have little idea what the prospect
is for successful reorganization of tbe
Paciflo roads under tbe plan proposed
by the present committee. I have an
idea for the readjustment of the gov
ernment matter and reorganization of
the Paciflo properties, but not aooord
ing to their method of reaching the re
sult. I believe it would be a great
thing for the country at large to have
the Union Paciflo and Central Paoifio
lines operated together as one property.
At present this whole country is large
ly at the mercy of the Paciflo lines
west of Ogden, operated by the South
ern Paciflo, whioh has the choice
whether its traffic shall go via the
Union Paciflo or the Southern line. I
think it was one of the purposes of the
government, in chartering the roads,
that they should oontinue as one line,
operated together, and I think reason
able legislation oan be enacted to se
oure that result.

shall introduce in the senate."

BRIEF SPARKS FROM THB WIRB8
Kelea.ed From Jail.
Walla Walla, Wash., Nov. 20.
Eremlno Genino, an Italian, was under
life sentonoe in the penitentiary here
for murder committed in Skamina
county fourteen years ago. The im
sion long prevailed that Uenino
was innooent, the viotim ot perjured
testimony. At the time of his trial
he had been in America but a short
time, and was unable to speak or un
derstand the English language, and
was at a disadvantage in defending
himself. Several years ago friends be
gan endeavoring to secure his pardon,
and at the last session of the Knights
of Pvthias grand lodge, held in Walla
Walla, May, 1895, petitions were pre
pared, oiroulated and signed, asking
the governor to pardon him. The par
don was received by the warden Satur
day and Genino was released on Sun
day. He had served thirteen years and
facts the seoretary says:
"How oan any one dare to assert
that farming is generally unremunera
tive and unsatisfactory to those who
intelligently follow it?"
The mortgages on farm values do
not exceed 16 per oent, a less inoum
branoe on the capital invested than in
any other line of industry. He lore
tells confidently a steady inorease in
the value of farm lands as the popula
tion of the country increases.

Parker today handed down a decision
in the oase of the oity against Henry
Kreoh, charged with violating the Sun
day law by working at his trade as a
barber on Sunday. The question raised
bv demurrer was whether or not the
oity possessed tbe power to pass such
an ordinanoe, especially in view of the
fact that it is provided in the penal
oode of the state that certain places of
business shall not be opened Sundays,
whioh the supreme oourt has oonstrued,
in the oase of the State vs. Kreoh, 10
Washington, page 167, as not applying

preservation of publio morality.

that at the olose of the last flsoal year
the establishment embraced 251 sta

the lakes, thirteen on tne raoino coast,
and one at the falls of the Ohio at
Louisville. The number of disasters
to vessels within the field of operationi
of the service during the year was 483
There were on board these vessels 5,402
persons, of whom 5,882 were saved
and 20 lost. Eight hundred and three
shipwrecked persons received succor at
the stations, to wnom 3,233 aays- re
lief in the aggregate was afforded.
The estimated value of vessels involved
was $8,001,275, and that of their oar
goes $2,645,960, making a total value
of property imperiled $10,647,285. Of
this amount $9,165,095 was saved, and
$1,502,150 was lost. The number of
vessels totally lost was 73.
In addition to the foregoing there
were during the year 192 causalties to
small craft, on hoard of whioh there
were 421 persons, 415 of whom were
saved, and six lost. Besides the num
ber of persons saved from vessels of all
kinds, there were 110 others resoued
who had fallen from wharves, piers,
etc, the most of whom would have
perished without the aid ot tne mesav

$4,561,665, and rendered assistance of
minor importance to 181 vessels in
distress, besides warning from danger
by the signals of the patrolmen 249
The investigations made into the de
tails of every shipwreok involving loss
of life, and into the oonduotoi tne me

that the unfortunate people who per
