A County Trsaturer Bohbei
Santa Rosa, Cal. County Treas
urer S to fen was knocked down to
day and the county treasury
robbed of nearly $8,000. Mr.
Stofen was in the vault when he
was attacked and knocked insensi
ble by a tall man who stole into
the vault in his stocking feet. After
gutting the safe of money the rob
ber closed the vault door and
turned on the combination. When
discovered Mr. Stofen was still in
an unconscious condition. His
wife was the only person who knew
the combination, and it was through
her inquiries about her husband's
protracted absence that suspicion
was aroused and the vault searched.
Klamath Falls, Or. News has
reached here that a most horrible
holocaust occurred at Silver Lake,
Lake county, Or., Christmas eve,
in which 41 persons were burned

curred in Christman'8 hall, where
a large crowd had assembled to at
tend a Christmas tree. A specta
tor accidentally struck his head
against a hanging lamp, overturn
ing it. The oil immediately caught
lire, and everything in the room
being dry and of an inflammable
nature, it was Boon a mass of
flames. A panic ensued and in the
mad rush for the door men, women
and children were trampled down
and burned to death.

An Xxtra Session i Possible
Washington. It is the opinion
among public men that if the urg
ent deficiency bill, making the
Appropriation to carry the income
tax into effect, and the Carlisle
currency bill, fail at this session,
the president will call an extra
session of the 54th congress.
Gladstone' 85th Birthday.
London. Ex-premier W. E.
Gladstone celebrated his 85th
birthday today at llawarden, and
was the recipient of hundreds of
letters and telegrams of congratu
lations "and birthday gifts. His
eyesight has been restored and his
health is good. He spends hours
daily in classical and theological
study. He has expressed through
the newspapers his thanks for
Japan' Probable Demand.
London. The Japanese govern
ment is very reticent in regard to
the terms it is willing to treat for
peace with China. Enough lias
been learned, however, to know
that Japan will give China no ex
cuse to ask for foreign interven
tion. The island of Formosa will
be taken by Japan as part of the
pledge for tho war indemnity, and
certain Chinese ports, that are not
treaty ports, will be held as a
pledge for the remainder of the
indemnity, together with such a
lien upon the customs revenues
already mortgaged. In regard to
Corea, it is probable that a China -Japan
dual control over that
country will be proposed.
Stanford Win from Chicago.
Los Angeles. The second fcot
ball game between Chicago Uni
versity and Stanford University,

game, but the Stanfords outgener
aled and outplayed them at every
point. The score is: Stanford 12, 1
Chicago 0. The Stanfords ecorf d
Higheit of U in Leavening Power. Latert U. S. Govt Report

Jack Froit in Florida.
Jacksonville, Fla. Reports by
wire from 51 correspondents in the
orange districts in the state indi
cate that at least 10,000 boxes of
unpicked oranges are solid, and
that more than 300,000 boxes of
oranges in warehouses or lying in
bulk, preparatory to packing, are
frozen. Tomatoes, cabbages, beans,
peas and all vegetables in the
northern half of the state are
ruined, except the pineapple plant
ations, which are not much in
jured. Day before yesterday half
the season's great orange crop ol
5,000,000 boxes was still ou the
trees. The tail of the blizzard
switched around through the pen
insula, and within the space of a
few hours Florida had sustained a
loss that, estimated in cash, will
reach into the millions. The de
struction will be felt for many
years, indirectly or directly, by all
the people of the state. The. weath
er has moderated and the cold spell
is now broken.
A Blizzard Raging in the South.
Birmingham. Ala. The worst
snow ptormi ever known in this sec

inches of snow is reported tonight
in middle and western Tenessee,
Arkansas, northern Mississippi and
western Alabama, with a steady

patch from Pekin says Liu Knn
Yi, vicerov of Liang Kiang, has
been appointed to the chiet com
mand of the Chinese forces, ousting
Li Hung Chang.
Brutal Double Murder.
Sacramento. One of the most
brutal murders iu the history of
this citv was committed here last
night. An old and highly respect
ed crocer merchant, F. H. L. Web
ber, and his elderly wife, were
brutally butchered in their com
fortable home, which was plun
dered by the murderer or murder
ers. As yet there is no clue to the
perpetrators of the crime.
Congress Resumes Thursday.
Washington. Both houses of
coneress will resume their sessions
Thursday next, and it is expected
there will be a more determined et
fort to press forward the work of
the session for tho next two months
than has characterized the pro
ceedings during the month's ses
sion iust passed. The necessary
work of the session is the passage
of the appropriation bills, of which
there are 14. None have passed
the senate and only five have
passed the sanction of the house.

Victims ol the Silver Laks Horror.
Roseburo, Or. The terrible
tragedy reported from Silver Lake
is peculiarly distressing to the peo
ple of this city. Among those re
ported as dead are J. J. and Walter
Buick, son3 of Hon. D. S. K.Ruick,
together with Mrs. Buick and her
three children, making six in all
of that one family. Mrg. T. J.
Labie, who is reported to be fatally
injured, is a daughter of L. Wirn
berly and a sister of Lee Wiraberly,
of the Roseburg Review. The fam
ily of Hon. D. S. K. Buick are
completely prostrated with grief.
TlieJnpsWIU GetoPekln. .
Shanghai. The manifesto which
the liberal party in Japan has just
issued declares in most emphatic
language that the Japanese army,
must go to Pekin, armistice or no
armistice. The Sendai garrison it
about to sail for China.
Ad Estimate pf Florida' Los.
Jacksonville. It is estimated
that $3,000,000 will hardly covet
the loss in Florida from the cold of
the past 72 hours. " The mercury
dropped to. 22 degrees above zero
last night, and. the cold completed
its work of destruction. The pine
apple plantations are ruined, as
well as the oranges and the winter
vegetable crops. Next year's or,
ange crop will be ehortened by !,
000,000 boxes, which means an ad
ditional loss of $1,500,000 to tho
growers and transportation com
paiiies. The direct and incidental
loss by this spell will aggregate ;
$5,000 0 J in the next two years.
Tuesday, January 1.
White House Pomp and Pageantry.
Washington. A regal New
Year's reception was given at the
White House today. Numerous
guests attended the New Year's
reception, and the old White House
was crowded with pretty women
and distinguished statesmen and,
gorgeously attired members of the
diplomatic force. As in past years,
decorations were all floral, but
there were noticeable differences
from the plan of last year in the
freedisDlav of potted plants and
palms in place of great banks of
cut flowers, which formerly graced
the rooms. What was lacking in
color was more than compensated
for bv the beauty of the plants.
The reception was a most brilliant
and gorgeous affair.
New York' New Governor.
Albany, N. Y. Levi P. Morton
was inaugurated governor of New
York at noon today. The new
governor and the full military
