themselves to what they wished, and

witnesses on the stand, several of whom

that the examination would last at least
three days, probably more. The prose

this point is overwhelmingly in their
favor. A baker named Young, of Ala

to Miss Williams on the day she met
For hours before the preliminary ex
amination commenced in Judge Conlan's
court, a crowd began to gather and a
squad of police were stationed at the en
trance to the hall to preserve order.
Judge Conlan's court room was crowded
to suffocation, and policemen were
stationed in different parts of the room
on the lookout for numerous cranks who
have written threatening letters to the
'judge. Court opened at 11 o'clock.
When the defendant arrived in court
all eyes were turned upon him. The
prisoner looked pale and concerned, bat
bowed no emotion. -
A photographer ; exhibited several
photographs of scenes in the church,
and two large pictures of Minnie Will

of the physicians were exhibited and at

a revolting sight.
Mrs. Morgan, with, whom Miss Wil

Bath, N. C, April 22. Two miles
from Bath are the timber mills of the
Boanoke Railroad company, where
about one hundred negrees are employed,
They are paid off every Saturday night
and spend their money lavishly in Bath,
' many of them frequently landing in the
police station.; ' ' , -
Those arrests have enraged the negroes
to such an extent that last night nearly
all the employes of the mill marched to
the town, which has a population of
three hundred, ' determined to take re

whisky, and after they bad overpowered
h Huntington's Arrest.
New Yokk, April 22. Collia P. Hunt :
ington, president of the Southern Pacific
railway, was arrested today on the
charge of giving a free pass to one Frank
Stone, in violation of the interstate com
merce law. President Huntington was
arraigned before United Stales Commis
sioner Shields. He was represented by
Frederick Coudert. Huntington ad
mitted his identity. He was taken be
fore Judge Brown, of the United States
jjiatrict court, for a warrant -of removal
to California. -
The indictment against Huntington
was found March 26, in San Francisco, a
certified copy of which was sent United
States District Attorney MaeFarlane,
who notified the railroad president to
appear before the United States com
missioner and furnish bonds.
When Huntington was arraigned.Com-
missioner Shields said the only 'question
he could inquire into was one of identity,
which Coudert, for Huntington, said
would be admitted. , An order was then
made out holding him to await the issue
of a warrant of removal. His counsel
then went before Judge Brown, in the
United States district court, and the
hearing was fixed for next Thursday at 3
o'clock, Huntington meantime being al
lowed to go on hi 8 own recognizance.
Huntington said to a reporter after
the' proceedings 'before Commissioner
Shields: "I have known Frank Stone
25 years. ' He is a San Francisco lawyer.
I would not call him a wicked man, be
cause a wicked man would not do things
that way. He is an innocent kind of a
fellow! " I supposed he started this
thing because I piqued him In some way
or other, how I don't know. I may
have given him a pass; probably I did,
but I give out so many passes I don't re
member a third of them. The passes
usually given out are endorsed as a rule,
Not good outside,' and I presume his
pass was not bo stamped and he took ad
vantage of it. I don't know anything
about the matter beyond that, for I
don't pay any attention to such things.
In fact, I don't care a tupenCe one way
or the other. It don't amount to any
thing, any how. I really don't know
what action was taken in court this
morning. - Some routine business, I sup
pose it was, but 1 did not pay any atten
tion. .The arrests are among the high
and low, and criminal procedure is not
confined to any ."class. I don't, know
what will be done. I guess Frank got
bis pass all right, but I have not time to
attend to all the details. I have too
much else to do. I think the root of the
whole matter lies in the fact that when I
became president of the Southern Pacific
railroad I discharged twenty-three men
in San Francisco, who were, as far as
could see, mere political agents and go-
betweens for politicians. They did no
work for the ' railway that I conld dia
cover, so I cnt them off. - Perhaps they
are hungry now and have got to make
The pass is said to read as follows :
"Pass Frank M. Stone over the Southern
Pacific Company lines in 1894 until Dec
ember 31, unless otherwise ordered."

were fairly crushed in their wild efforts
to execute buying orders. The., price
fluctuated violently, and soon after open

Gold Mines Jealously Guarded by the
San Luis Potosi, Mexico, April 22.
C. L. Debenroth ' the mining man who
left here six months ago on trip
through the territory of Tepee, in search
of the fabulously rich gold mines that
are said to be worked there by the In
dians, was killed in the mountains near
one of the Indian villages. - .
A number of expeditions to these gold
fields have been undertaken during the
past few years, and they have resulted
in the death of all members at the hands
of the Indians, who jealously guard the
treasure. The n-ws of the killing of De
benroth was brought rere yesterday oy
a Mexican who saw and recognized the
body. He was well known in mining
circles of Colorado.
