NOW THE "BLOOMER BALL"
THE CLERGY OPPOSE IT
A Sermon Preached Againat Them
in a Methodist Chuich Last
Night at San Fran
cisco. SAN FRANCISCO, July 29.Sinee
bloomer ball us given in Chicago
a few days ago, preparations have
been made for several functions of the
kind in thisclty. As a lesult the local
clergymen are considerable agilated
over the subiect, and last night Dr.
Westwood Case, of the Howard street
Methodist church, paid bis respects to
the bloomer girl and the bloomer ball
in the following words; "I believe ip
the wheel and in women riding the
wheel, and In her getting rid of a great
deal of unnecessary skirts; but when
It Is announced that no woman can at
tend the bloomer ball wearing skirts,
then it Is time to put In a protest. It
is my opiuiou that no woman will go
to that bloomer ball who is virtuous
and prudent and possessed of taste.
But let nobody quote me as saying
that all who go to the ball are not vir
tuous women; I have not said that,
but 'hat they will not be all three of
those things, I say, that, in my opin
ion, being a Just prophecy. I believe
that every respectable woman will
frown upon any such kind of an en
tertainment The danger of (he
bloomer craze lies in the fact when
the public allows a little latitude in
every community are somewbo are
disposed to make it disgraceful. "
Right Man Caught.
BACRAMENTO, July 3B.-The cap
ture of Jack Brady, murder aud Far
mer's boy uear Sacramento, naturally
created quite a seusution in Sacramen
to aud large crowds of people were In
and about Sberifl Johnson's office
all the afternoon hoping for a chance
to see the noted criminal. When De
tective Thacker called at the Jail Brady
"How do you do, Mr. Tharker."
"How do you know my name?"
"Oh, I was n a saloon near the cor
ner of Third and K streets in this city
a few weeks ago when you came In.
Borne one remarked, there's Thacker, !
and I ducked out of there."
Brady says he loHged here for a
weak and was at Stockton about three
weeks. His capture, which was
made by deputy Sheriff McDonald and
William A. Jobnsou, under a bridge
near Franklin, in this county, was an
easy one, They got the "drop" on
him while he was biding under the
bfi'tti and he had to surrender. Yes-1
terday i7 "f nungcr into
tbe little tow." f eepnrt and the of
doers were not.'.d, Wheu Brady
was arrested he bad in hi' possession a
sswed-off shotgun of tbe pattern Usu
ally earrled by eipnus messengers. It
was the identical gun which bad been
stolen from the express train which
was held up near Lodl a few nights
before the train robbery iu Yuba
county. It will be one of the strong
links in tbe chain of clrounistantial
evidences to convict Brady. The gun
was today identified by Wells Fargo
officials as belonging to tbe express
An Illinois Cyclone.

HAN FRANCISCO, July 29.-Iu
tbe Durraut case this morning twelve
jurors were examined, but uone accep
ted. The court prohibited the pro
duction of the play, "The Crime of the
CeDtuary," advertised for thlseveun g

SAN FHANCIHCO, July 2T.-Mrs.
Stanford has been at Polo Alto this
week consulting with President Jor
dan about tbe opening of Stanford tin.
iyereity in September. Mrs. Stan
ford's finniices will not permit of city
expenditures that arc not absolutely
necessary, but she will be able to fur
nish enough money to run the institu
tion on the same lines as last year.
President Jordan has submitted esti
mates showing that the university can
be conducted without imparl ng Its
efficiency for $16,000 a month. Mrs.
Stanford, In order to raise money, will
sell of tbe stock ou the Palo Alto
ranch; There are now on tbe farm
600 hundred head of fine horses, .ine
auction eale will be held in New York
and another iu San Francisco. The
income from the Palo Alto and Vina
ranches has not been large enough to
keep it open, Mrs Stanford baa been
obliged to hypothecate some of her
railrosd bonds, and the same course
will be necessary to secure funds for
tbe support of the university tbe com
ing year. It is understood Mrs. Stan
ford is negotiating a heavy loan on
bonds of the Southern Pacific of Ari-
zona and New Mexico. Owing to this
financial embarrassment, Mrs. Stan
ford is very anxious to have the gov
ernment suit against the estate settled
as soon as possible. It is understood
that au agreement bus been reached
among council to have the proper pa
pers filed with the court of appeals at
very early date.
Forty Reported Dead.
MEMPHIS, July 28.-A report was
current here tonight that tho large
steamship Belle of Memphis, of tbe
Anchor line, bound from St. Louis to
to this city with about eighty-five ex
cursionists on board, sank about sixty
miles north of here, and that forty
lives were lost. There Is no telegraphic
communication with any point on the
river near the scene. The only points
with which there is telegraphic con
nection ci.nnot be raised tonight. The
rumor cannot be confirmed. The fact
that' tbe rumor cannot be traced to
any substantial foundation leads to
the belief that it originated among the
anxious friends or relatives of the pas
sengers, many of whom are from
Memphis. Tbe boat was due here at
seven this evening.

Editor Expbess: '
Trusting that I may be permitted to
'ink' a corner of your paper I give you
a present brief sketch from the east
-slope of the Rockies.
This being by first communication
since my departure from Oregon, I
would briefly make mention that I en-
Joyed an uncommonly pleasant trip to
Kansas, having come by the Northern
Pacific railroad to Billings, Montano,
tnence over the Burlington A Misso
uri, to Lincoln, Nebraska aud Chicago
Sc Rock Island railway to Belleville.
Tbe magnificent beauty of the scene
riding down tbe Willamette valley
from Lebanon to Portland with the
mountain walls fringed with fir, cedar
and pine rising, on either side, and the
broad fertile valley decorated with the
cultured improvements of the closing
years of the Nineteenth century rises
aiaiu before me at my desk this morn
ing. We passed them; crossed the rol
ling Columbia and sped away through
the fertile valleys aud great hop fields
of Washiugton, wound through her
timbered fastnesses of tbe Cascades
and crossed their crests to the broad
plateau beyond, with Its wide fields
aud wider ranges. And yet ou, win
ding around and passing over the
splintered ridge of the calm, cool and
majestic looking wall of the Rocky
mountains. Then into that vast and
gentle slope beyond which seems to
spread out as one field in a gentle de
scent to the waters of the Mississippi.
No more fences, crooked roads or
small "patches In the nooks" are
found here. Farming is carried on, on
an extensive scale. Corn Is tbe pre
dominating crop and the fields of forty,
eighty, 160 or an entire section lies be
fore you all In a waving green as far as
the eye can reach, and tbe whole
country has tbe appearance of one
Rain is the only want here; and
plenty of that there Is no fear of want.
This year however is up to the time
fairly promising over the states of
Kanas and Nebraska. In mauy
places the rainfall haB been heavy and
good crops are iusused; other localities
have? however yet bad insufficient
rain aud some anxioty for the future
exists. The worst localities however
feel sure of from half to third of a crop
and tbe supply will be sufficient to
meet home demands there is no doubt.
Oregon, (abroad) baa a terrible
name, for rain, water; but the question
aBked me more thau any other Is:
"How Is it where you have been? Is
it dry iu Oregon? Have you had
plenty of rain out there? etc?" Two
drouths in succession have made a
very anxious people hero, and their
great anxiety is a hope that they may
have sufficient rain,
For these people I can say that, If
tbereisany one who will feel thank
ful and appreciate a good crop It Is the
Kansas and Nebraska farmer who has
seen two successive failures. But witb
the failures of the past you'll find
them loyal to the soil with a produc
tive history behind It and they who
have taken root at all are here to stay
with the faith that assures them It will
redeem Itself for the recent past.
There certainly Is nowhere a finer soil,
aud all hinges alone on rain.
In the political field, free silver crops
in as the olilef subject of discussion.
It bas quite a following here in all
parties, though the free silver men are
largely in the minority. Populism
has had its flourish aud Is last declin
ing. The old leaders are looking for a
new party, are very unsettled, and
would, properly be olassed with the
mugwumpelement now. They would
vote all over tbe field,
Trusting that this sketch may serve
to express our regards to the Epress
with lta readers, and all uiy personal
friends through tbe same, I am,

; Narrow Escape From Death.
A few days ago as accident occurred
at the Cameron mill on Crabtree creek
at the crossing of the Woodburn
Springfield railroad, that came within
a hair's breath of resulting iu the
death of N. A. Clark who was at work
ut the mill. Mr. Clark was engaged in
off bearing lumber and a board wbich

tear two of hiB ribs loose from the
breast bone, and at tbe same-time
knocked hi in back so that he fell
through the floor upon the main drive

Dr. Cole, of Solo, witb Dr. Poositer as
his assistant, were soon at the bedsldo

and tbe shoulder and a fearful gusli

the arm to tbe back part of the arm,
