Caracan. The Ilerakl'a correepond-
ent telegraph : A terrible earthquake
ihoek took place in Venezuela April 28.
Report! which have been received here
from the district! affected tell of terrible
Ions of life and the destruction of vil
lages and towns. The cities of Merida,
Laitunillas, Chisuara and Han Juan, sit
uated in the northwestern part of the
Republic in the region of the Andes, are
reported as having been totally destroyed
by a tierce shock at 1 1 o'clock on - the
night of the, 28th. Many villages are
said to be wreck!, but details are not
yet to be bad. The convulsions extend
ed to parts of the adjacent Republic of
Colombia. Full reports of the catas
trophe will be learned slowly, but it is
probable that 10,000 people have per
iHhed, and it is certain that the greatest
suffering prevails in the places visited
by the earthquake., Ihe United states
Minister here has notified the State De
partment at Washington of the terrible
ell'ects of the catastrophe, and has asked
that afleintance be given to the people of
the stricken districts.

MRS. DR. RAWSON
Asks for a Divorce Because of
the Doctor's Practices.
A SMUGGLING STEAMER SEEN.
Religious Movement That Has Found
Favor In Tacoina Women Claim to
be8nctlnd by Ood.
Tacoma. Mrs. G. W. Gallagher, wife
of the pastor of the Atkinson Memorial
Congregational Church of Old Tacoma,
is the leader of a new religious sect. A
number of women, principally married,
have renounced their husbands and men
generally, unless tbe latter have become
sanctified, as the women believe them
selves purified by God and sanctified be
yond the touch of unsanctined mankind.
The movement has met with sufficient
popularity among married and unmar
ried women and a few men to warrant
the leaders in renting a hall to discuss
the subject of universal sanctincation,
which they consider an important one
in a higher civilization and ethics. As
a result of adhering to the spirit of the
principles of the new sect mere 9 re
ported several matrimonial infeMities,
regarding which Mrs. Gallagher says
that if either the husband or the wife is
sanctified and the other is not they can
not get along together. It is currently
reported Rev. Mr. Gallagher is displeased
with the new sect's plans ana would
seek a divorce.
8KNT TO "TOCKTOJf.
Many Witnesses Affirm Jake Rudolph's
San Francisco. Jake Rudolph, who
attempted to kill tbe business manager
of the Chronicle on the 7th instant, has
been committed to the Stockton Insane
Asylum as the result of the examina
tion before Superior Judge Levy and the
Insanity Commissioners. There was no
attempt to interpose a defense, and the
consensus oi testimony esiauusiieu oe
yond question that Rudolph was insane,
and that bis mental condition was of he
reditary origin. Chris Buckley testified
that he had known him for twenty years.
during the greater part of which time
Kuuoipn naa neen nis ciera anu com
panion. The ex-boss recalled the occa
sional fits of melancholia which over
came Rudolph, who had several times
threatened to kill others ana tnen him
self. Buckley believed Rudolph was in
sane, and that his insanity had been
hafltened and aggravated by domestic
troubles. Sam Rainey's knowledge of
Rudolnh extended over many years.
and he personally believed that the man
was insane, as wen as aangerous to tne
community. J. B. Knot, whom Rudolph
tried to shoot, testified tnat lie did not
know the man and had never seen him
before the assault. Lemuel Rudolph, a
brother of Jake, admitted the family
taint of madness, and confirmed the
statement that his father, mother and
sister were mentally irresponsible. Ex-
Coroner W. F. Garwood. Dr. George
Franklin Shiels, Dr. J. D. Wilson, Noah
Flood and Dr. J. M. Bell testified that
they knew Jake Rudolph, and that they
believed he was insane. Rudolph was
accordingly committed to the asylum at
Stockton, with the provision that should
his reason be restored he must be turned
over to the San Francisco authorities for
trial upon the charge of assault with in
tent to commit muraer.
TWO AGAINST ONE.
Decision of the Court In a Midwinter
San Francisco. The suit of Conces
sionaire C. F. Hall against the Midwin
ter Fair management has been decided
in favor of the latter. Hall claimed that
in Chicago he bought the exclusive right
to exhibit gold and silver plating at the
Midwinter Fair. He paid 500 for the
privilege, and went to the further ex
pense of fitting up a $1,300 booth. After
he was in working trim he discovered
that three other people at the fair were
in the same line of business. Hall de
manded that their privileges should be
revoked. The management refused to
do this, and Hall brought suit for an in
junction. The whole case rested on his
application papers. Hall said he had
been unable to get them from the man
agement. The management declared
that they were " lost." In consequence
testimony had to be offered to show
what thev contained. Hall swore they
granted him the " exclusive " privilege,
and pointed to ins receipt to snow mat
he would not have paid the money had
he not rot an exclusive right. Messrs.
de Young and Comely swore that Hall
had not been granted the "exclusive"
privilege. It was two against one. Judge
Murphy said that the preponderance of
'"'"Wfch aHk PJIaw enjnsjjk

evidence was on the side of the Midwin
ter Fair management and Le must per
force give judgment in its favor.
The Ex-County Clerk Found Guilty of
Port Townsknd. W. F. Fennimore,
ex-County Clerk of Jefferson county, has
been convicted in the Superior Court of
embezzling $527.50. The jury recom
mended that he receive the lowest sen
tence consistent with the law. One year
before he retired from office two local
banks refused to pay their taxes on ac
count of their property being assessed at
ta excessive valuation, and while the
matter waa in adjudication paid to Fen
nimore the amount stated as a tender.
Subsequently the suit wm decided in
favor of the banks, and Fennimore
turned the office over to the newly elected
County Clerk. The accused did not sur
render the money to his successor or the
County Treasurer. Such was the evi
dence adduced in the prosecution. The
defense offered no testimony except as
to Fennimore'! previous good character
and reputation in the community. The
jury was out thirty minutes. Mr. Fen
nimore has lived in Jefferson county ten
years, and was a Deputy Collector of
Customs from 1883 to 1888. In 1889 and
1890 he was elected County Clerk by
large majorities, leading the head of the
tickets by 200 or 300.
A8TOBIANS REJECT IT.
The Stanton-Campbell Proposition Is
'Astoria. The Stanton-Campbell rail
road proposition was considered by the
Astoria railroad subsidy committee and
decided upon adversely. The uain ob
jection found was that it was proposed
to tie up the subsidy for twenty days,
and this in accordance with the previous
determination of the committee to enter
tain no offer other than one to complete
the road was rejected. Whether the
Stanton-Campbell party will now retire
is a matter of conjecture, although Mr.
Stanton stated before his departure for
Portland that he would abandon the en
terprise for good. Many of his friends
here, however, claim that be will again
be in the field with an amended propo
sition in the course of two or three
weeks. The belief is gaining ground that
the Union .Pacific will build the river
road this summer, and various rumors
to that effect, all apparently well found
ed, are current. The sentiment of the
majority of the property owners is favorable-
to Messrs. Baxter and Dicken
son in whose good faith and ability to
bring the matter to a successful issue
there is a pretty general confidence.
LITTLE ANNIE MOONET.
Many Reasons to Believe That She Is
San Francisco. The police ridicule
the story that Emily J. Freeman is the
missing Annie Mooney. Sergeant Haley,
who has had a band in the investigation,
says anxiety and worry over the loss of
his daughter has affected James Moon
ey 's mind, and that for that reason his
identification of the girl is of no value.
It goes without saying that thin police
opinion is of no real weight in determin
ing the identity of the girl, which is the
real question at issue. Mary Cuneo, the
woman who is supposed to have abducted
little Annie Mooney, was in the city
about the time of the picnic at Belmont.
and she had the child in her possession
shortly after that event. The Freeman
girl was that child beyond possibility of
question t and there are many circum
stances, including the maudlin admis
sions ot the old woman, which help out
the theory that Annie Mooney has been
ASKS FOR DIVORCE.
The Parties Are Prominent, and Sensa
tionalism 1 Promised.
Sbattli. A sensational divorce suit
was begun here the other day. The
plaintiff is Mrs. Dr. Rawson, cousin of
Prince Yterbide of Mexico, with whom
she was formerly in love and with whom
she was recently received at Washington.
D. C, by Secretary Gresham. She is
supposed to have been jilted by him,
and, meeting Dr. Rawson, who is a very
handsome man, on a train while she was
yet only 17 years old, she married him
after a six days' courtship. They then
resided in Helena, Mont. Jura. Kawson,
who is a lovely woman and now visiting in
California, asks to be excused from de
tailing the causes of the divorce, but al
leges that her husband's practices were
such that she could not live with him.
Dr. Rawson was recently in London, bat
is now believed to be in New York,
What is known aside from the complaint
promises extraordinary revelations.

THE CANAL BILL OF BRYAN.
A Plan for Completing the Nicaragua
Canal by the United State by a New
System of Financiering-.
"Washington. A plan for the comple
tion of the Nicaragua canal by this gov
ernment by a new system of financiering
has been introduced in the House by its
author, Bryan of Nebraska. While some
features'of Senator Morgan's product are
repeated, a great innovation is brought
forward by provisions intended to in
crease the cirealating medium of the
country, paying for the stock of the canal
company by an issue of legal-tender
notes modeled after the greenbacks of
1862. The plan is designed so as to meet
favor from the anti-bond men. Accord
ing to the bill the stock of the canal com
pany is to consist of 1,000 shares of 1100
each, for which legal United States notes
identical in character to those issued
under the act of February, 1862, are to
be issued, redeemable to the same ex
tent and same manner as those of 1862.
The Secretary of the Treasury is to pur
chase $70,000,000 of the stock of the
company and pay for it at par by the
issue ot the notes described, which are
to be kept in circulation as a part of the
currency of the country. Six millions
of the capital stock is to be issued to the
government of Nicaragua, $600,000 to
Costa Rica, and the remaining $23,500.-
000 is to be held in the Treasury until
the government decides whether to pur
chase it or permit it to be sold by sub
scription, except an amount not . to ex
ceed $7,000,000, to be used by the com
pany in taking up its outstanding stock.
Provision is made for an immediate issue
of $2,000,000 as a working capital and
the issue of the remainder in quarterly
installments as may be necessary to
carry on the work of construction.
Extra Precautions Taken by the Chicago
Chicago. Mayor Hopkins and Health
Commissioner Reynolds have issued a
joint proclamation requiring all persons
in the city who have not been vacci
nated to have that operation performed
within ten days under penalty of prose
cution under a city ordinance providing
a fine of not less than $3 nor more than
$25 for failure. Those who cannot afford
to pay for vaccination will be treated
free. The Commissioner has put 100
men on the rolls. Thev consist mainly
of physicians and senior medical stu
dents, and will be used as vaccinators.
To the force of men investigating daily
tne sweat shops " twenty-nve others
were added, making the total force fiftv.
The health officials nave secured a lum
ber kiln in which to fumigate clothing.
This will be useful in the fumigation of
clothing taken from " sweat shops." On
account of tbe prevalence of the disease
the City Collector has temporarily re
fused licenses to junk dealers.

LABOR IN OREGON.
A Statement From the American Pro

Washington. The American Protect
ive Tariff League has prepared a state
ment showing the condition of labor in
Oregon. From 140 different reports in
thirtv-five different towns it is shown
that the total average number of hands
employed in 1892 was 3,848. In 1893
there were 3,021, and in 1894, 1,512.
This was a decrease in 1893 of 21 per
cent, and in 1814 ot 60 per cent, bev
enty-six reports were received from
Portland, showing 2,589 hands employed
in 1892 and 1,154 in 1894. The statement

NATIONAL CAPITAL NEWS..
A bill to provide for coinage at the ,
branch mint at Denver, Col., has been
introduced in the House by Pence. It
appropriates $600,000 for the construc
tion of the necessary plant.
The House Committee on Pensions
has voted to report a bill increasing the
rates of pensioners of the Mexican and
Indian wars from $8 to $17 a month.
Representative Caminetti of California
had introduced a bill to give this increase
to Mexican war pensioners, and the com
mittee decided to extend it to Indian
There was a brisk discussion in the
Senate over the naval training station
on the Pacific Coast. The California
Senators insisted that the station be lo
cated at Mare Island. Mitchell, Dolph
and Squire insisted that the matter be
left to a commission, and that the Co
lumbia river and Paget Sound be con
sidered. White and Perkins got angry,
and withdrew the bill.
Representative Wilson of Washington
i prepared to show that the House cut of
the Apache Indian appropriation! from
$125,000 to $90,000 will necessitate a re
duction next year of 1,000,000 pounds of
beef and 30,000 pounds of flour. It is
his opinion this cut is likely to lead to
trouble with the Apaches. It will also
be shown that the Indian police service
will be made inefficient bv the. propoeed
cut and the Indian schools crippled.
There are many other specific items
likely to cause an uprising among the
Senator Squire has offered an amend
ment to the river and harbor bill provid
ing for the Seattle canal in a new form.
as follows: "Dredging Sbilshole Bay
and Salmon Bay and improvement of the
waterway connecting the waters of ru
get Sound at Salmon Bay with Lakes
Union and Washington by enlarging the
waterway into a ship canal, with neces
sary locks and appliances in connection
therewith. $200,000." He also offered an
amendment of $25,000 for dredging Ev
erett harbor, including the mouth of
Snohomish river and Snohomish river
from its mouth to Lowell.
Among the serious charges Secretary
Herbert is investigating on the coast-
defense ship Monterey at &an Francisco
is one relating to the virtual ruining of
the hydraulic turrets, which contain the
big twelve-inch nfles of that ship's bat
tery. It is understood that on the, re
cent sea cruise of the ship during prac
tice Bring of tbe guns it was thought by
the officer in charge that the hydraulic
mechanism for taking up the recoil need
ed modification. One of the machinists
of the ship was ordered to take out the
plungen and reduce their diameter a
quarter to half an inch. The plungers
were reduced one-quarter, and when the
guns were fired again the water naturally
rushed past the plungers with Very little
resistance, and every pipe and joint con
nected with the apparatus burst, flood
ing the turrets and necessitating repairs
which will consume several weeKS.
Attorney-General Olney has rendered
an opinion in which he holds the settle
ment made by secretaries windom and
Foster with the North American Com
mercial Company, by which the govern
ment for the years 1890, 1891 and 1892
received a less rental both aa to the bo
nus and the rental per skin than was
originally agreed upon, was illegal and
there lore is not binding upon the present
Secretary. This reduced rental and tax
was accepted because the company had
not been permitted to take the full num
ber of skins ordinarily specified n the
lease as a limit. In view of this decision
the Secretary has made a formal demand
upon the company for the full amount of
rent and per skin tax for the year 1893,
and has referred to the Attorney-General
for such action as be may deem advis
able the matter of collecting from the
company the full amount due from the
previous years. The whole amount
claimed to be due the government is
about kszu.uuu, of which iraz.uuo is on
account of the 1893 catch.
All but the final step has been taken
in the admission of Utah aa a State of
the Union. A favorable report on the
bill has been made to the Senate by
fauikner, Ubairman of the Committee
on Territories. It is provided that the
election for a constitutional convention
shall be held the Tuesday after the first
Monday in November, 1894; that this
convention shall meet the first Monday
in March, 1895, and that the constitution
framed by this convention and the elec
tion of State officers under it and mem
bers of the State Legislature shall take
place the Tuesday after the first Monday
in November, 1895. This would leave
the constitutional convention to fix the
time for the election of the Legislature,
which would elect United States Sena
tors. It is believed that the House will
agree to the Senate amendments, and in
that case Utah will be started on its way
to Statehood some time during this ses
sion of Congress.
The legislative and judicial appropria
tion bill has been completed by the Ap
propriation Committee. It carries the
salaries of all the goverment officers for
the coming year. The whole amount
recommended in the bill is $21,101,823,
being a reduction under the estimates of
$1,208,687 and a reduction under the ap
propriation act of the current year of
$766,190. The whole number of salaries
especially provided for in the bill is 10,
110, being 363 less than the number pro
vided for in the law for the current year.
The reorganization of the Treasury De
partment on the basis recommended by
the Dockery commission is a feature of
the bill. It reduces the Treasury force
185, and reduces expenses $239,080. An
other new feature of the bill is the pro
vision for printing 10,000 copies of the
rebellion records, both of the Union and
Confederate navies, to be apportioned
among Senators and members and by
them distributed to libraries. The ap
