Washington, May 28. Rear
Admiral Rodjjers informs the navy
department from Callao April
oOth, that the ship Lackawanna
sailed that day for Samoa and the
Gilbert group of islands. After
visiting the same she will probably
go to San Francisco via the Sand
Paeifie Mail Co.
New York, May 28. The Pa
cific Mail election was held to-day,
resulting in the election of the old
board of directors, except Babcock
and Potts, whose places were taken
by Russell Sage and Howston, who
were connected with the company
under the Rufus Hatch adminis
tration. Both of these gentlemen
represent Pacific railroad interests;
hence present arrangements are
likely to continue.
PACIFIC COAST NEWS.
San Francisco, May 28.
Prosper May, uii old established
wholesale liquor dealer, 733 and
725 Clay street, is reported failed
Bakersfield, May 2S. At about
12:15 this morning some one called
at the door of the Court-house and
was answered by Jailor Reed, who
was requested to open the door.
Mr. Reed refused, when the door
was forcibly broken and about 75
men entered. The jailor was or
dered to throw up his hands,
which he did. The keys were
then demanded, but refused.
Search was then made and the
keys found. The mob entered the
cells containing Thomas and Wil
liam Yokum, and lynched them by
hanmnff them in their cells. Wm.
Yokum was chained to the floor of
the the cell, and as the chain
could not be loosened, he was
hung with the chain on his
feet and was shot several
times. The Yokums were in
jail for the killing of Johnson and
Tucker at Long Tom, more than
a year ago. Wm. Yokum had his
trial and was convicted of murder
in the first degree and the supr.eme
court ruled that he should have a
change of venue, and the case was
moved to Fresno county. The
mob were all masked except five.
