BLANCH LAMONT MURDER
The Inquest Will Begin aa Soon
aa the Williams Case la
8AN FRANCISCO, April 27.-The-odore
Durraut was taken from bla cell
this tnorulna; and formally charged
with the murder of Blanch Lamont.
The prlsoi.er was very surly. As be
was being booked for the second mur
der, be said to Detective Seymore:
"How many more crimes are you go
ing to charge against me?"
The Inquest on Blanche Lamont
will begin as soon as the preliminary
examination of Durrant in the police
court for the murder of Minnie
Williams is concluded, probably on
The court proceedings were contin
ued from Friday to Tuesday. Iu tbe
superior court. Durrant will first be
tried for tbe Lamont murder if held
for both crimen.
A tight to have the Durraut case dis
missed in tbe police court now seems
probable. It is known that tbe at
torneys, for Durrant are working oh
Dr. Gibson's handwriting, and Gen
eral Dickinson has asked that some of
wltnessesalready examined be brought
back to court for futher questioning.
Among tne witnesses he bas asked fin
are tbaj'Oung ladies who saw Durrant
In Alumeda, tulklug to Mlncle
Williams. Durrani's attorneys will
not say at this time what they propose
doing. ' The prosecution feels that it
has already produced sufficient testi
mony to insure the prisoner .being
held for trial. ,
Stanford University. .
SAN FRANCISCO, April 29.-The
Bulletin says the teachers at Stanford
university are looking for poeitious In
other universities on the impression
that the university founded by Leland
Hlauford wilt soon close its doors..
They fear that the college will close'
because tber is no money in the Stan
ford estate to pay for Its maintenance,
the estate being tangled up In tbe suit
with the United Stale. Meanwhile
all expenses of the university are be
ing defrayed from the private Income
of Mrs. Stauford. Just as the Stan
ford properties were being put on a
first-class business basis, United States
Attorney-General Olney, Btarted his
big suit for 15,0U0,000 against the
Stanford elute. When asked as to
this matter, Mr. Lathrop said:
"It Is ull this government suit If
it succeeds it seems inevitable that the
uuiversity niut be closed. As it I it
has tied the estate up In probate and
preveukd the distribution of (he
estate so thut it may seriously embar
rass us. We are pressing the suit and
wish to have is determined as early as
possible. The uuiversity cannot pay
its own expenses, for tuition is abso
lutely free. Tbe boarding department
niunngea to pay its own expenses, but
that bas nothing to do with paying
the professors. There is now some
where near r100 students, connected
with tbe uuiversity and about seventy
five men lu tbe faculty.
Northern Pacific Hold-up.
TACOMA, April 27.-8ix highway
men flagged the overland Northern
Pacific express train Just east of the
Caseade mountain tunnel last night.
The railroad company had been given
the tip 8i)d captured two of them.
They expected tlut tl)e express oar
would carry $40,000 lu gold to pay off
the Roslyn coal miners, and for over
a month had planned for the
bold-up. One of their pals weakened
early u the plot, and notified Superin
tendent Joseph MuCube, of the Pacific
division of the road. He in turn put
the case In charge of a detective. ' ,
Tbe officials were notified yesterday
that tbe highwaymen would bold up
the overland this morning. They had
planuep; to flag tbe train at Nelson,
aud (lien uncouple tbe express car
from the body of the traiu, and wjtb
out molesting the passengers, take the
engine and express oar away for a
while, aud Iheti loot the express safe.
Instead of slopping ut the statlou,
the engineer allowed It to run past
two lengths, thus frustrating the rob
bers, who eapared of surrounding
the tralu before mi alarm guuid w
near the train, anil tl.e engineer pul
led out leaving his rear llagnmu be
hind. The robbers (lied a few shots
in the air, and disnppeared. Later
two of them hnd p'nmted to blow up
the exprees car, nnd .it that, point a
posse was in hiding and arrested them.
They are Hank Harrington, alias
Harry Laveol of Steilacotn, mi ex-con-vlct,
and Booth Harrison, a randier
living near Easier). He planned the
robbery. Officers found eight sticksnf
dynamite, a quantity of powder, steel
drills and also gunny Kick- in which
the $40,000 was to lie carried awuy.
The captured robbers were taken to
Ellensburgh. A posse of twelve, In
cluding all the best gun fighters In the
cfty, participated In the capture. Ex
Chief of Police Davis, ex-Captain
Dufield and Cass Vlnnt were among
; Three Lives Taken.

Earnest Maywaldtand her two chil
dren, aged 2 and 18 months respec
tively, were found in the Powder

afternoon, and were missed ut seven
o'clock in the evening. A search parly
was organized, aud was nut all night,
before making the horrible discovery
this morning. It is s:ild the woman
was driven to desperation by the ill
treatment of herhusbanrl.who drank to

cruel and abusive. She chose death to
such a life, and took her two bubis

bank, of which be is cashier, and
proved by them Unit Jones had at
least $20,000 before I he mint shortage
occurred. It. H. Beek. of the Reno re
duction works, testified that J. Henry,
a former employe in the mint but
whom detectives cannot now Hud, had
at several times given himumalgum to
east into bars. Amalgam resembled
the granulations of the mint refining
room. He represented to Beek that he
was oi e of the four handlers of u mine,
and they did not want the ownir to
know how it was. Mr. Iieek sold
nearly $12,000 worth of this bullion to
the Bank of California und the Silby
company, of Han Fraiieisco, nod there
was more that he disposed of himself.

A MILD COURT SENSATION
DAVENPORT PLEADS GUILTY
Gives Reasons for Doing So, In
stigated to Commit the Crime by
' a Man Employe 1 by a Gov
When "Doc" Davenport, the coun
terfeiter, came Into the United States
court this morning to plead to the in
die nient against him, he created a
stir. When asked whether or not he
was guilty of having molds in his
possession, . which constitutes one
charge against him, and of coining
spurious dollars, he acknowledged
that he had done both.
No one expected bim to plead guilty.
It was supposed that be would stand
trial, but he bad something to say.
When Judge Bellinger formally asked
lilni if be desired to matte a statement
before sentence was passed, he walked
to tbe witness stand unfolded a tale
that aroused tbe ire of the judge.
"Last December," said Davenport,
"a man giving his name as Charles
French call at my house on tbe farm,
and said that he would like to remain
there several weeks trapping. He had
traps, and he set them. One day he
asked me how to make countefeit dol
lars, knowing I understood tbe busi
ness because I had served a term for
the offense eight years ago. He gave me
50 cents with which I bought plaster
and solder. I made the molds, and a
few coins with them.
"French told me that be only
warned to learn out of curiosity, and I
did not see any harm In showing him
But, soon afterward, I was arrested on
this charge,. Now that man French
Was simply employed hySpecial A-cnl
of the Treasury N. R. Harris to corner
. As it is a well settled principle of
criminal law that a man cannot lie
held for a crime when Instigated to it
by detectives, Judge Bellinger deman
ded an explanation from District At
torney Murphy. He arose, and said
that French bad not Instigated Daven
port; that he bad simply caught
Davenport in the act.
But this explanation did not satisfy
Judge Bellinger at all. "You may eh
down," said he to Davenport. "I will
investigate thismatter. Sentence will
not be passed at this time. Detectives
of the government have no right to
uid iu the commission of crime, and
thus come into this court to ask thai
the criminal be punished. I want It
understood that lei'sons who go about
instigating will not ftud tbeir business
successful in this court."
And a stillness that was embarrass
ing reigned for a moment,
"Why then did you plead guilty?"
asked the judge, suddenly turning b
"Well, what else was 1 going to do?
I supposed that they had me, and I'vi
got no money for lawyers."
The judge then aBked for French bu
he was not present. lie uniiotincet
that he would look into the mattei
and learn the truth. Should he fiiu
that Speclul Agent Harris did employ
French to trap Davenport in this way
the countefeiter may get off.
Judge Bellinger Is very po-itive In
the matter. He has a great nntlpatlij
to detective work of this class, believ
ing Hint It Is not the business of the
government officials to create eases.
Davenport's record as a conntrfeiter
will likely Injure his chances of being
credited, but the methods employed in
working up the case are very likely to
influence the judge in giving sentence,
should he decide to pose sentence at
all. Portland Telegram.
It is the general opinion around
here that the above statement of
"Doe" Davenport's Is true and that
some of the so called detectives around
Lebanon took this plan of making
money out of tbe government at
Davenport's expense, If we are cor

Old Gold Diggings Reopoened.
California is being literally sijufezd
for gold just now. Not only are die
old diggings Iu Culuveras nnd a se re
of other counties worked over for the
precious metal, but the very shore
along the ocean lu sight of San Fn-ii-clsco
Is being searched for it. The
black sand undoubtedly contains part
icles of gold, but the problem hitherto
has been to hit on n device that would
seperufeor extract the minute Vdn
from the mass of sand. A uew much
lue which is called the "amalgamator"
It is the invention of a Boise man -does
this. Two camps are already
using the amalgamator within u few
miles of Sutro Heights, and it Is win !:
iug so satisfactorily that all San rraii
Cisco has caught the new gold fever,
and It is said that the whole ocean
front for miles up and down w ill soou
be dotted with mining "outfits." An
export reports that the sand pays 1 10
One patty of eight meu with an am
algamator extracted about $400 worth
of gold lu as many days' lubur, and
anotner camp bad done still better,
having realized nearly $1000 In two
weeks. The amalgamator in which
result are obtained is an odd-looking
contrivance built of wood, 7 or 8 feet
long and scarcely more than 3 feet
high, The sand is fed intoahoppr,
in a revolving cylinder, with.a number
of catch-pockets attached toil. Uuder
the cylinder quick-silver attracts the
gold, and leading away from it s;e
plates of silver, over wkich the water
and pulp sand is carried. The "pulp"
sona is tneaetrltus or that from whii a
the gold bas been extracted. Onlv a
small force of men iB required to s t
up an amalgamator camp; two to
shovel and wheel the sand, two to look
after the machino and one to e.,o! .
