The Habit Is Barbarous. , San Francisco, Sept.' 11. Charles Sonntag, president of the California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, went put to Golden Gate Park yesterday afternoon and returned with the oonviotion that there is need for a. big reform in the praotices of some of the wheelmen. Mr. Sonntag notioed a number of bicycle . riders spinning through the park with in fants strapped to the handlebars of their wheels. He considers it a highly " dangerous practioe, and says he is de termined" put a; stop to it if the . offloers of the society have to be in structed to arrest every person seen carrying an infant on his wheel. Aside from endangering the life of a child, he says the praotice of strapping a red faced infant to a wheel and pushing it against the fog and wind from the ooean is barbarous. . .. Fraker Identified by His Sinter. Riohmond, Mo., Sopt. 11. Mrs. ': N. J. MoGruder, of . Atlanta,, Mo. , ;. sister of Dr. Fraker, arrived here and at once went to the county jail. If any doubt existed as to the identity of the man it was dispelled by his meeting with Mrs. McGrudor. She reoognized him at once. The meeting was an affeoting one. After the meeting in the jail, Mrs.' MoGruder was seen at her hotel, and said the prisoner was Dr. Fraker beyond doubt. Asked in regard to the money she had received from Judge Lincoln as a part of her share, she said the sum was about $ 1,2 00, and it was now on deposit in a bank in Macon oounty. She is as yet undecided what course to pursue in regard ' to it, and denied the published statement that she had offered to turn it over to the insurance company. Still a Methodist.

A CONTESTED ESTATE Dispute as to a Young Man's Identity. GREAT MANY DEPOSITIONS MADE Peculiar Case Involving Considerable ' Valuable Property in the State ' ' of Washington. Spokane, Wash., Sept. 12. The oontest for the estate of old John Wy ant, who was murdered near Spangle, this oounty, three years ago, has de veloped one of the most puzzling mys teries in the history of the-West John and Joseph Wyant were Vir ginia boys, who came West many years ago. Joseph settled - in Iowa, married and brought up a family of twelve children. John went to Mis souri and the question of his marriage is now in dispute. : Several years ago John came to Washington and took up a fine farm near Spokane. There he lived alone until the night of his murder and the attempt of the murderer to destroy the evidence of his crime by firing the house. A young man who claims to be the son of the murdered man is here, claiming the property and the case is now before Judge Moore of the uperior court. The young man's story is that when his father came to Washington he left him with his Unole Joseph in Iowa; that he grew up there and was thought to be Joseph's son, by others his nephew. Six years ago he ran away and came to the Pacific . Northwest. Later Joseph Wyant, as a result of family difficulties, also came ' to this section. He visited his brother's grave, then drifted into the Northern mining country. '.. At Kaslo he found the runaway boy, advised him that he was the son of John Wyant and that an estate awaited him in this oounty.' He came here, fell into dissipated ways, was ar rested while drunk for breaking into a saloon, gave another name and serv ed out a short sentence in jail. While in prison he was recognized by a young man named Metcalf, a former school mate. In the trial of the oase, Metcalf and his half-brother testified that they went to school with Wyant and that he was known ai a nephew of Joseph Wyant A great many depositions have been received from Nebraska and Virginia, but they deepen the mystery. Some are sure Fred Wyant is the son of Jo seph; others are equally positive that he is the son of John and therefore en titled to the estate, i The wife of Joseph says he is not her son, but her oldest son Warren sends his deposition from Virginia, and says that Fred is his brother as he remem bers when he was born. He also at taches a purported letter from his mother, saying she had sent Fred out here to secure the estate. Other mem bers of Joseph Wyant's family are sure Frod is not their brother." Some of the neighbors are quite positive that John Wyant was never married: others are equally positive that he was. A de cision is not expected for some time. ; STATE BOARDS MEET. Semi-Monthly Session the State School - Land Commissioners. Salem, Sept. 12. The state board of sohool land . commissioners held its regular semi-monthly session today.

The Claim Hastened by England's " , '. Action at Corinto. . New York, Sept. 12. Further -par ticulars of the latest movements for a Central American Union have been ob tained from Senor Jose de Gomez, the Nicaraguan statesman, who, ' as the speoial minister from the president of Nicaragua to the Central American states, conducted the preliminary nego tiations which lead to the understand ing now arrived at. Senor Gomez ar- ri-ed in New York several days ago, From here he will go to Washington in a few days to pay his respects to the Nicaraguan minister. He says that he is in the United States solely on private business. In an interview he said: . . " , "The confederated arrangements to which Nicaragua, Salvador and Hon duras have just committed themselves, and which it is hoped Guatemala and Costa Rioa will also assent to,". said Senor Gomez, "is primarily in the in terest of maintaining peaoe throughout Central America, and promoting civili zation and progress in the five repub lics. The substantial and intelligent citizens in all these countries are heartily sick of revolutions, which have been so frequent in the past and have retarded devlopment, wasted our resouroes and discredited us in the eyes of the world. Everybody who has vis ited Central America, or made a study of the conditions, knows that ours is materially, the globe, which ought to compare favorably with any other for population, prosperity and , advance ment But the populationof the whole of Central America is not much in ex cess of 13,000,000, including natives and other inferior races; and its back wardness is lamentable in various ma terial respects. But what hastened the agreement for union and was probably the deter mining factor in bringing it to pass at this time was the arbitrary action of England in the Corinto affair several months ago. That was a striking ob ject lesson of the weakness of the Cen tral American states when confronted by foreign aggression; and the union for defense which we are now inaugur ating is the direct outgrowth of it. Last year I was sent by the president of Nicaragua as a special minister to the Central American republics to pre sent to their governments propositions in behalf of a treaty of union. I re ceived fair encouragement, but before my mission was completed, the events growing, out of England's 'claim on Nicaragua transpired, and I was sum moned home. , President Zelaya there upon decided that the time was ripe for immediate action, and without wait ing for the results of my negotiations to devlope in the ordinary course, he is sued an invitation to all the Central Amerioan presidents to meet at Amal pa, the capital of Honduras. General Bonilla, president of Honduras, and General Guiterrez, president of Salva dor, responded favorably and the three presidents accordingly met in confer ence at Amalpa in July. The result of their deliberations was the treaty, the details of which have already been printed." - - , CASE OF BUSTAMENTE. Captain Johnson Upheld for Surrender ing Ezeta's Lieutenant. - San Francisco, Sept 12. In regard to the surrender of Flprencio Busta mente, one of Antonio Ezeta's lieuten ants, whom the United States refused to ' give up to President Guiterrez, of San Salvador, by the steamer City of Sydney, to the Salvadorean authorities at La Libertad, Alexander Center, local agent of the Paoifio Mail Steamship Company, in an interview today upheld the conduct of Captain Johnson. Cen ter said that Johnson did not surrender Bustamente until forced to do so by the authorities at La Libertad. He con sidered it a question of international law to be solved by the authorities at Washington. ' : United' States District ' Attorney Foote said that while the steamship company could not be held ': responsible for the surrender, no' foreign power had any right to go upon a vessel fly ing the American flag . and take away any person for a political offense with out that person's consent When a person is on shipboard under the Amer ioan flag, theoretically, he is on Amer ican soil. Foote continued: ,; "The proper course is through dip lomacy.,. It would be the business of the American minister at San Salvador to stay any execution of the prisoner Bustamente until the United States government could investigate the mat ter and see whether any treaty obliga tions had been violated. It was for re fusing to interfere in the Barrundia oase that Lansing B. ' Mizner was re moved from the office of minister. Bar rundia was taken from an American ship and shot, and Minister Mizner did not interfere to protect him." ; General Antonio Ezeta is little con cerned about the fate of Bustamente. Ezeta does not think that Bustamente will be harshly treated, beoause of his former friendship with Guiterrez, but even if "the monkey," as the captured exile was known, is put away in his hole in the ground forever, Ezeta does not think it will matter much after all. RESERVE STILL LOWER No Apprehension, However, - Felt tor the Future. 0TEE A MILLION IS WITHDRAWN The Treasury Officials Have Ko, Doubt - the Syndicate Will Very Soon '.;'' Make the Losses Good. . ; . Washington, Sept. 11. The gold re serve today was further depleted by the loss of $1,200,000 withdrawn for ex port from the New York subtreasury, This left the reserve, at the close of business, $97,710,772. The treasury officials have received no information of contemplated gold deposits by the New York banks, as reported, yet they have no doubt that the syndicate very soon will make good the losses below $100,000,000. For this reason, when questioned, thef say they have no ap prehension for the future. As to the real purpose of the syndicate with re gard to speedy action, they have no emcial or reliable information. The relations between the congres sional library and the treasury depart ment have assumed a normal condi tion. The regular disbursements of the library for August were made, by the treasury department on-requisitions of Librarian Spofford. , The re port of the copyright payments for August will be rendered to the - treas ury this week. . The settlement of old accounts has not yet been completed, but it is expected that any balance found to be still due by the librarian will be ascertained soon, and a report of the same made' to the secretary of the treasury.' - ' - V Two hundred Chinese, reoently landed at Vanoouver, B. C. , have made application to the oolleotor of customs at Ogdensburg, N. . Y;, for entry at that port. i It is stated these Chinese are actors, etc, en route to the Atlanta exposition, and while there is no good reason known for their rejection, the government has taken the precaution to instruct the oolleotor to Ogdensburg to make a very thorough examination into the matter before permitting them to enter. ' Latest reports from Seal islands in dicate that the North American Com mercial Company has taken about 15, 000 skins, the maximum limit imposed during the season closed August 1. Re ports received early in the season led to the belief that there was an unusual scarcity of seals on the islands, and that the Commercial Company ' would not be able to take more than a frac tion of its . quota, " but subsequent re ports show no material decrease in the number herding on the, island sinoe last year. , , The Indian office has received no in timation of trouble at the , Roseburg agency. Reoently the agents were in structed to reduce the prices paid for hauling supplies, etc. , to a ' fair price, it being held that they were , three times as high as they should be. -;. If the Indians did not care to do the work at the lower figures, the agents were instructed to contract with white men for it Hollow Horn Bear, who is the leader of the malcontents, is well known as an agitator. : It is said that he always cools down soon, and no real trouble is anticipated. It is probable that the Oxnard sugar bounty case will not reach the court of claims for some time. ' Mr. Ham, who was associated as counsel with Senator Manderson, has requested Secretary Carlisle not to send the case to "the court until the senator has had time to read Controller Bowler's decision, and take whatever action thereon he saw fit The request was granted, and the papers will remain in the secretary's possession until Senator Manderson is heard from. . : '. '-. Two Bealing Schooners Seized. ; Victoria, B. C, Sept 11. The sealer Beatrice arrived this morning, having been seized for alleged viola tion of the Behring sea regulations. She reports the seizure of the schooner Ainoko. ' The Beatrice was boarded by the Rush August 20 and four seal skins, marked as if by buckshot, were found aboard.' Although no guns were found, she was seized on a oharge of having used firearms in the sea. She was towed to Unalaska and turned over to the British ship Pleasant,; by whom she was ordered to report to the naval authorities here. - The Ainoko was seized on a charge of being inside the sixty -mile protective zone after seals. The Ainoko left Unalaska be fore the Beatrice, but is not yet here. Both vessels will be tried in the Admiralty oourt Their value, with fittings is about $9,000 apiece. , The Beatrice reports a light catch of. seals. The high line schooner had. only 700. , A New Coastwise Record. San FraneiSoo, Sept. 12. The Pa oifio Mail steamer City of. Sydney - has established a new ooean record in mak ing the run from Acapuloo to this port in five days, nineteen hours and thrity three minutes. This is more than a half a day less than the best previously recorded time. Acapuloo is 1,886 miles from this city, so that an average peed of 18.16 knots an hour was made, THE ALASKAN BOUNDARY. Observations of a Priest Recently lie . turned From Missionary Work. Baltimore, Sept. 1 1. Rev. Father Zeenus Barnnm, who has recently re turned from the interior of Alaska, where he spent four years in missionary work among the natives, gave to the Baltimore Sun an interview relating to the boundary dispute between . the United States and Great Britain. - "The claim made by the British gov ernment at the instance of Canadians," said he, "embraces a valuable atrip of land, a portion of which is the key, to a vast extent, to the interior of Alaska, and which possesses rich mineral re sources. ! Another portion would give them control of fine natural harbors, and in a third place they would give one , of the most magnificent scenic regions ol the world, ; Glacier, bay, which is now beginning to be visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world during the summer months. Although the immense value of this land cannot be accurately deter mined, a knowledge of its geographical position on the coast shows that great commercial advantages should . accrue in the future . from its possession by this country. It is a long, narrow .slice running the whole length of the narrow circular district of Alaska that is ; nearest this country. It is most temperate in climate, and the only part of the territory that is settled by any considerable number of white men. "One important effect of Great Brit ain's claims, if they should be al lowed," would- be1: that Great Britain would have control of the route . which is the key to the gold fields on the northwest ; corner of Alaska. ; These fields pan out about $100,000 eaoh year, but it has been stated there are rich prospects there yet unworked, as well as other mineral resources whioh, when they become well known, will likely oause considerable immigration there." : , : , - .-' m , .-. ;-; : Turkish Annoyances, - , Constantinople.

Further Outrages Reported. London, Sept.' 11. A dispatch from Ears, Armenia, says the entire district of Eennacks is surrounded by : Turkish troops, dispatched by Zekki ' Pasha, under the plea of arresting - Armenian revolutionists.

AMMUNITION QUIETLY BOUGHT Bodies of Armed Men Are Dally Leav v ing Burns and Vicinity Ostensibly . , for Hunting Purposes, - Burns, Or., Sept 10. Bodies of armed men are leaving this town and vioinity daily for the Stein mountain country, ostensibly for., hunting pur poses, but the more knowing ones here think they are going . on a different purpose, and unless the agents of these reservation Indians reoall them at onoe they will probably not have so many Indians to care for the coming winter. All the cartridges and am-: munition have been bought up quietly, and the town is out of, these articles today. ' One of our hardware firms had , some 15,000 rounds of cartridges at Huntington, Or. The same firm has ordered more by express, and a team has been hurriedly sent to the railroad after these goods. ' - . The Alaskan Indians. Seattle, , Sept, 10. Advices from.. Alaska by the steamer Willapa, which arrived in port last evening, state that the Chilkoot and Chilkat Indians en gaged in a general free fight near Dyea recently, during whioh two Indians: were shot dead and a ' squaw badly wounded. . The oause of the bloody, affray was whisky, and it is feared that more bloodshed will follow, owing to the lawless, fierce and warlike nature of the Chilkats. . The Alaska News, printed at Ju neau, says that the primary cause of the fight was two Swedes, who were " headed for the Yukon1 country with a large quantity of whisky in their pos- session, They hired some Chilkoot Indians to pack the outfit over the summit, and claim that six kegs of old bourbon were stolen from them by the Indians. .On the other hand, the In dians claim they received the whisky in part payment for their services.. . , . However that may be, the Chil koots had the whisky, and invited the Chilkats to join in a social event In a short 4ime all were drunk as lords, and an altercation took place between the members of the different tribes. In less time than it takes to tell it, - the -devil in the red men came to the sur face and firearms - were flashing all around. , A general fight ensued, and . there was an exchange of shots, result ing in the killing of a Chilkat brave by a member 1 of the Chilkoots. To make matters still worse, a Chilkat squaw caught a flying bullet in her leg. 'Then the Chilkats retaliated by shooting one : of the Chilkoot braves dead as a doornail.: : The fight was stopped at this point, and the Chilkats immediately started -for their village. . A large number of Chilkats are away from home, but will . soon return, and it is feared they .will march on the Chilkoot village in a body and wipe it out of existence. ' THE APPLICATION DENIED. Judge Hanford Refused to Appoint a Receiver for Margrave's Farm. ,. , Spokane, Sept 10. Application for the appointment of a receiver was de nied today by Judge Hanford, of the United States court, in the suit of Rob ert Balfour against Richard Hargrave. The suit originated in Walla Walla by proceedings to foreclose a mortgage : on a wheat farm in Whitman ' county, the default in payment of interest hav ing occurred more than a year ago. In . denying the application the oourt holds that the proof of insolvency is not sat isfactory; that when wheat is worth an ordinary prioe the value of the land will greatly exceed the debt' There do not appear to be any rents or profits to colleot, for the land has .not been rented. The object of this application, -the oourt said, is to seoure this year's crop on the pretense that the crop is profits, but the crop does not represent the profits on the land. The profits would be an excess of the value after deducting the cost of deed, planting, care of growing orop, harvesting, taxes on land, etc. At the present prices on wheat ' there would be exoesses after said deductions. : , Endowed by Miss Gould. : New York, Sept. 9.
