DURRANT IS CHEERFUL
He Thinks the Police Will
Find Nothing More.
THE NEW THEORY ADVANCED
Bit Nothing Was Found Which Would
Imenminste Him Farther The
San Francisco, April 18. Theodore
Dnrrant waa very cheerful this morning,
and greeted everyone with a smile and
pleasant words. The probable reason
for this change in the accused man is
probably caused by a belief that the
police have exhausted every mine for in
formation against him. The searching
of the church is completed, and no
further evidence has been brought to
light. He rested well last night, and ate
a hearty breakfast this morning.
Police Surgeon Somera visited him
this morning to study hia actions in an
ticipation of a plea of insanity when the
case ia brought to trial. Dr. Somers
says that Durrant shows no eigne of in
sanity, in fact, he spoke with intelligence
on every subject that was brought up.
Durrant seemed very well pleased that
he had not to make the trip to the
morgue today. The inquest will be con
tinued tomorrow morning.
. Shortly after 8 o'clock last night Dnr
rant was taken to the detectives' room,
opposite the chief's office, by Detectives
Gibson and Anthony. The chief and
all the detectives were in the1 room.
Dnrrant was taken into an inner room
by Detectives Seymour and Handley.
, They made hint strip and carefully ex
f amined bis underwear and clothes for
marks of blood, bnt none could be seen.
Then they carefully examined his body
Afor any recent marks or scratches, but
the only one was the abrasion on his
chin, which he said he got in the brash
at Mount Diablo.
The police today incline to the opinion
that Durrant, after " the murder of Miss
Williams, went directly home and
changed his clothes, and buried those he
had worn before going to Dr. Vogel's
house. They say it would not have
taken him more than five or six minutes
to get to hia house, and they think this
offers a more plausible explanation of
the mysterious disappearance. Recog
nizing the vital importance of this link
in the chain of evidence, the police have
searched not only the gloomy churchon
Bartlett street, but every place where it
seemed to them there was the slightest
liklibood of the garments being con
cealed. To that end a thorough search
of the Durrant house has been made,
but without success.
Another witness has come forward
who thinks he saw Durrant and Misa
Williams, or a couple resembling them
very much, at about 11:15 o'clock: on
Friday night on Bartlett street. As he
passed them he heard the young lady
laugh and the young man was smiling.
He did not abserve their actions after he
had passed them, but says they were
walking towards the church. The des
cription tallies exactly with the dead
girl and Durrant, and if they were the
persons, bis testimony will go to prove
that the girl waa not murdered early In
the evening, as has been supposed.
The News Confirmed.
Washington, April 18. A telegram
has been received at the Japanese lega
tion to the effect that the treaty of peace
between Japan and China was signed
the 17th instant. The tame day the
Chinese plenipotentiary and suite left
Simonsaki for China. Ratifications are
to be exchanged at Cbe-Foo within three
weeks from the date of signing. The ut
most reticence is observed with respect
to the exact terms of the treaty. The
Japanese minister Ufi-ye that information
N. is confidential, and it would be a breach
Highest of all in Leavening Power. i-aiest U. S. Gov't Report
of trust to discuss maters until the treaty
ia formally agreed to. There is no doubt,
however, that the indemnity will be
much smaller than the original sum of
300,000,000 taels. All reports that Japan
is to occupy territory outside of Formosa
and Fort Arthur is pronounced untrue.
It is thought Port Arthur is to remain
in possession of Japan for a certain term
of years for strategic purposes and then
be restored to control in China. For
mosa, it is said, will be governed by a
prefecture having a local autonomy and
possibly a partial representation. It is
denied tbat'the liken tax which China
imposes npon all- goods transported to
points in the interior, has been abolished.
It is said however, that China has
agreed to make the tax uniform.
In a Kever of Excitement.
Austin, Tex., April 18. The legisla
ture was in a fever of excitement all of
yesterday. The house was locked up
until 6 o'clock last evening in a wrangle
over a fee bill. The senate was in a sim
ilar plight over the anti-trust bill. ' Soon
after roll-call this morning the senate
showed no quorum on a vote. The ser-geant-at
arms was tent after an absent
senator, living at Texarkana, and the
senate spent the rest of the day playing
dominoes and voting down motions to
adjourn, meals being brought to them.
Last night at 8 o'clock the crisis came.
Senator Atlee was temporarily in the
chair. A motion to adjourn was made
and six memberB voted for it. The rest
of the members were talking in a far
corner of the hall. The chair declared
the senate adjourned, 'notwithstanding
the fact that most of the members as
they rushed to their seats demanded the
yeas and nays. As soon as Atlee de
clared the senate adjourned until morn
ing, Senators Beall and Sherill .rushed
towards the speaker's desk witn clenched
fists and flashing eyes, denouncing the
ruling aa infamous. . - ,
Senator Bailey advanced on the door
keeper and demanded that the doors be
opened or he would kick them down.
The doors were opened and. amidst the
greatest confusion the body adjourned
after having been in continuous since 10
o'clock yesterday morning.
Mew Catbolte Organization.
Njsw Yobk, April 18. The Sun says:
At an international Catholic conference
held at Liege Belgium, in April, 1893,
the declaration often recited -by Pope
Leo XIII, that the restoration of the
pope's temporal power is necessary for
the well being of the Catholic church,
was solemnly subscribed to and the
nations of the world were invited to form
organizations advocating the pope's in
dependence. In the United States such
an organization has just been formed,
and this week the Catholics of this city
have been asked to interest themselves
in it. The association is called the
Pope's Autonomy Order of the United
States of America. It is the intention
to form in every Catholic parish through
out the country a branch of this order.
Sattoh has approved the project.
President Dunne says that the apostolic
delegate, after examining the constitu
tion of the order, declared he considered
the object in view a most laudible one, 1
and one to be approved, and that the
plan in the abstract seemed to present
no objectionable featurs.
Slattery at Houston.
Houston, Tex., April 18. Ex-Priest
Slattery passed through this city last
night en route to Austin, having been
unable to secure a ball here for a series
of lectures which were to commence to
night. The opera house and all the
balls, moat of them owned by Protest
ants, were denied him, although his
agents offered exorbitantt rent. A com
mittee representing 250 Irish Catholics
offered Slattery protection to speak, but
Slattery felt the cold reception accorded
him, and declared that the pope "owns
and rules Houston and her citizens."
Still In the Dark.
Washington, April 18. The Nicara
guan minister is still without advices on
the subject of the difficulties wiiheng-
t t Vii "1 1 javat
land. The fact that be has not been in
formed respecting England's willingness
to arbitrate leads him to doubt the cor
rectness of the report and seems to cor
roborate the London dispatches that
Great Britain does not consider Nicara
gua's reply satisfactory. Now that Eng
land's foreign secretarv. Kimberlv. has
returned the Nicaraguan minister ia of
the opinion that Nicaragua will be ad
vised shortly what Great Britain's next
step will be.
Going to Peking;.
Washington. April 18. A cablegram
from ex-Secretary Foster announces that
be will accompany Li Hung - Chang to
Peking. The Chinese viceroy and "party
will arrive at Peking about May 1. bet
ween which time and the expiration of
the extended armistice of May 8, there
will be a Week for the Chinese authori
ties to exchange ratifications of the
treaty. It is not doubted that the
treaty will be ratified and promptly pro
claimed. Great Uaiii.
