Trobolto Matteo, an insane patient who was committed to Agnews Insane Asylum on Monday, died in the County Jail to-day from the effects of hurling himself head foremost? against the brick wall of his cell. Matteo, who was 50 years of age, was arrested last Friday by Deputy Constable Castro for stealing lumber from W. C. Krieg. He was charged with petty larceny and was to have been tried for the crime to-morrow. He was. a "sour wine fiend," and when arrested was intoxicated. On Saturday night he became wild with either delirium tremens or insanity. He hurled himself against the cell In the big tank, and when two cellmates interfered he attacked .them. Finally Jailer Drcischmcyer had to remove the others from the cell to quiet him. When Matteo was bathed on Sunday it was found that his arms and body were bruised and there was clotted blood on his head. Symptoms of insanity developed cpuiekly and after examination Drs. Bangs and Simpson signed a commitment to Agnews. Yesterday morning Deputy Sheriff Bache, who was to take Matteo to Agnews, went up to the cell and found him unconscious. City Physician Laspada was called, but the old man never regained consciousness and died about 11 o'clock this morning. An examination of the body this evening showed a wound on the top of the head, which is undoubtedly a fracture of the skull and which was the cause of death. County officials are criticized for not having provided a padded cell for Insane persons, the Sheriff having repeatedly petitioned for such an apartment. ASSAILANT OF FLOSSIE WHITE GOES TO ASYLTJK Edward L. Coons' Delusion Is That Children Are Afflicted With White Devils, Oakland Office San Francisco CalL 111S Broadway, Jan. 29. The insane delusion entertained by Edward Ll Coons that he is commissioned to drive evil spirits out of the bodies of every child he meets convinces the police department that he is the man who attacked and bound little Flossie White. Testimony offered before Judge Ogden today, when Coons was examined on a charge of insanity, bears out this theory as to the identity of the man who has been so long sought. On the strength of the stories of witnesses and Coons' own admissions that he has attacked children Judge Ogden decided that the safest place for him is the State hospital at Ukiah, to which institution he committed the patient. At the examination Coons was first permitted to tell all about himself. On the events of his past life his memory was clear enough. Judge Ogden and the examining physicians, Drs. J. L. Miton and Myra Knox, succeeded in drawing out the history of his life from his boyhood until the present. His troubles seemed to have, begun after he married his second wife, in ISiiO. He had trouble with her and claims that it led to his being put in the insane- asylum at Ctica, K. V., where he was then living. He came Jo California then and in was committed to Ukiah, having become afflicted with religious mania. He stayed there three months and has since been living in Oakland. But on the subject of evil spirits and little devils Coons demonstrated that he is altogether crazy. He said that It is within his power to distinguish devils in children as soon as he see them and that he can drive them away by pounding their bodies with his fists. "That boy over there," exclaimed Coons, pointing to a child named Claude Altman, whom he is accused of having abused, "hasn't got any devils in him because he is too small. If he was a little bigger, though, he would have them." TESLA MUTER IS KILLED BY DYNAMITE EXPLOSION Alexander Gianetti the Victim of an Accident Four Hundred Feet Below Earth's Surface. . Oakland Office San Francisco Call, ' 111 Broadway, Jan. 29. By the premature explosion pf a set blast of dynamite at the Tesla coal mines this morning Alexander Gianetti, a miner, was blown to atoms. The accident occurred at 3 o'clock in the 400-foot level of the mine. Gianetti had gone to work on the night shift and had been preparing the blast, after working several hours on the drill for the insertion of the dynamite cartridges. Shortly before the accident occurred he had arranged everything for the explosion. It is supposed he was attaching the fuse when the blast went off, before he had a second's warning. Near him in the tunnel were several other miners, but they escaped injury. As soon as the result of the accidental discharge was known a rescue party went through the level, only to find the unfortunate miner's body had been blown into a hundred pieces. The remains were gathered up and after being placed in a coffin taken to Liver-more, where an inquest will be held later. Little is known of the miner. Dynamite Kills Three Men. HALIFAX, N.

The reduction is a result of the conflict that for .weeks has been waged among San Francisco Jobbers. In the northern city the sugar rate card was long ago smashed, the product being sold at less than refinery prices. So. bitter did this struggle become that many San Francisco jobbers quoted prices that enabled the Los Angeles retailers to lay down sugar here at 20 cents per 100 below the rate that has ruled In Los Angeles. This caused a marked decrease in the sales by Los Angeles Jobbers In the field that they claim is exclusively their own. Tiring of this and other influences that were undermining the home trade tha Los Angeles jobbers determined to fight the sugar question in Los Angeles to a standstill. From to-morrow morning, until further notice, the retailers of Los Angeles will be enabled to purchase granulated sugar at 54 SO a hpndred and beet granulated sugar at $4 70 a hundred. In commercial circles it was said that a better rate than this would be granted, as any rate offered from San Francisco will be met If the entire bottom has to be dropped out of the sugar bucket. ''r'v""II"I,'"lI"j O SKATING CARS E Three Persons Are Killed During a Storm of Sleet. PITTSBURG, Jan. 29. Three persons were killed, two fatally hurt and a score of others more or less injured by two runaway cars on the Monongahela branch of the Pittsburg Railway Company tonight. The dead are: JOHN McFADDEN, aged 24, East Mc-Keesport. MARY KINCAID, 19, East McKeesport; passenger on second car. ROBERT TRUSS. 29, conductor, Pittsburg. The seriously injured are: Chas. Wright, motorman, arm broken, hurt internally; Alexander Sanders (colored!, both legs broken, will die; James F. Ryne, motor-man, severely cut and bruised; Frank Small. East McKeesport, leg broken in two places, badly cut; Thomas Campbell, Wilmerding. teller Farmers' National Bank. Pittsburg, cut and bruised all over bodj-; Jacob Smith, Walsen, severely cut about head. The accident happened at the foot of Long Hill, runing into Wilmerding from McKeesport. A car without passengers got beyond the control of the motorman and dashed down the hill, one and a quarter miles long, at a terrific speed. At the bottom it jumped into the Pennsylvania Railroad station, carrying away the side of the station and tearing up the platform. A large crowd gathered about the wreck and twelve minutes later a second runaway car came tearing down the hill and plowed into the crowd with death-dealing force. On the way down the hill the car struck a carriage containing James Brown and Lizzie Minner, on their way to McKeesport to be married. The carriage was completely wrecked and the driver, Alexander Sanders, was fatally hurt. The young couple escaped with comparatively slight injuries and later were married, A blinding sleet storm prevailed at the time and, it is said, the two cars "skated" down the hill with brakes tightly set. WRECK OF A TRAIN EAST OF LXVEKMOIIE Trainmaster Horace Watson Is Severely and Conductor McHuga Slightly Injured. . Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, Jan. 29. In a train wreck this afternoon at 5 o'clock, two miles east of Livermore, Horace Watson, a Southern Pacific trainmaster, was so severely injured that he may die and Conductor McHugh w-as seriously cut about the head and face. An engine tender and caboose were thrown from the track and overturned in the ditch. The injured men made their way to Livermore, where physicians attended them. The accident is one of a series which has been occurring to gravel trains that are being operated between the new pits at Pleasanton and Summit, east of Altamont. Besides his internal Injuries, which are so serious, Watson suffered the fracture of several ribs. His home is at 917 Adeline street in this city. A wrecking train was sent out from the West Oakland yards to clear the track and to replace the overturned rolling stock. Engineer S. Harris Hobron, who resides at 946 Union street, in this city, was In charge of the wrecked locomotive. It is said that one cause for the wreck can be found in the weakening of track joints by the pounding of the heavy compound engines that are in service. The rails through that section of the country, where the wrecks have been frequent of late, are light, and are not adapted to the heavy rolling-stock, particularly locomotives, that are run oyer them. The wreck this afternoon tied up all travel between Oakland and Stockton and all points over the Livermore run east. of that town. COUNTERFEITERS BAIR PART WITH PROPERTY OAKLAND, Jan. 23. Ulysses G.

The home is handsomely fitted up and is surrounded by ample ground. The consideration of $10 only is named in the deed. The property was transferred to Henry A. Pleitner, a Fruitvale real estate man, who made the original deal to sell the property to the Bairs. Mrs. Kate Bair Indicted.

T Is Escarpments of Indian River Valley Are Found to Re Composed of Great Masses of Conglomerates. Special Dispatch to The Call. VICTORIA, B. C, Jan. 29.-Reports from mining engineers and reliable miners of Dawson tell of the discovery of quartz conglomerates on Indian River, twenty-eight miles from Dawson, the immensity and phenomenal wealth of which it is difficult to grasp. Indian River and its tributary creeks were thoroughly prospected for placer gold in the early days of the Klondike rush. Recently the naturo of the placer material on these creeks attracted the attention of miners who had worked in .the South African gold fleids and they were struck with its similarity to the rich "blanket" deposits of the Rand. They carried their investigations further, to the neighboring benches, and discovered that the escarpments of the Indian River Valley were composed of immense masses of conglomerates. Identical in composition with those which have yielded so many millions of treasure in South Africa. A superficial prospect of deposits satisfied the miners that they were gold bearing, and subsequent examinations at various points revealed the fact that they carried from $100 to 5200 in gold to the ton. The conglomerate deposit so far located is eight miles long and from one and a quarter to four miles wide. Its thickness is unknown as yet, as no sinking has been done, but the Assuring of the mass shows 500 feet. This fissure traverses the conglomerates from the northwest to southeast. One side has subsided, leaving the other precipitous, and at the base of the precipice no indications of a change of structure are observable. There seems no doubt that the Indian River Valley was at one time 4u0 or 500 feet higher than at present and that its old channel has been depressed by erosion or by some sudden convulsion of nature to its present level Every portion of this immense mass of quartz conglomerate is gold bearing. Colors are found everywhere and free gold in specks and. good sized nuggets are of freauent occurrence. San Franciscans in New Field. SBATTLE, Jan. 29. Unless the claims of some of the miners who are now in the country to secure locations are much exaggerated the coming spring promises to bring from Alaska news of a new placer gold strike of considerable importance. The discovery of the Inoko gold fields was made by a party of prospectors who, on their way out from the KUskokwim a year ago, lost their way and wandered on to the Inoko, where tney spent the remaining portion of tho winter. In the spring they did a little prospecting, sufficient, according to the reports, to convince them that the ground was extraordinarily rich after which they came on out-of -the' country for a supply of provisions and equipment for working their newly discovered claims. News of the find reached Nome late this season and at least three parties left that place to go to the scene of the discovery. One of these consisted of four men, II. R. Henderson and R. II. Henderson of San Francisco and J. Cunningham and Charles McDow of this city. According to their information the discoverers of the new diggings took out $7000 in dust and nuggets in a few days. One of the discoverers was a man anmed Ferguson, who came from Oregon. The gold was in dust and in gold-bearing copper quartz. The men claimed that, according to reliable information, the new diggings were so rich that a man could easily take out upward of $15 a day. The Hendersons Invested $4000 in their outfit and another party, outfitted by two saloon keepers at Nome, purchased the small steamer Los Angeles and started a party of sixteen men for the new discoveries. Gold Strike Near Redding. REDDING, Jan. 29. Gold has been discovered on land upon which stood for years the buildings in which the poor and infirm of Shasta County were housed. The land is near the town of Shasta. The county hospital was recently moved from Shasta to a .point near Redding. The eighty acres of land comprising the old site was considered almost worthless and was sold to four men for $600. Coroner Greene of this city was among the purchasers. The four men set about .to develop a ouartz claim on the property. At a depth of sixty feet a drift was started to crosscut the l4lge. After running twenty feet an ore bodv was tapped to-day. The rock is rich in free gold, easily discernible to the naked eye. The pay shoot is throe feet in width, although the ledge has an extreme width of fifteen feet. Conservative miners estimate the value of the ore which glistens across the face of the pay shoot to average $300 a ton. 6 H-HH-rW-H--:'4IH Hundred Armed Men Gather in "Wyoming for Lynching. CHEYENNE, Wyo., Jan. 29. A mob of 100 armed men is patroling the railroad yards at Casper, waiting for the return of Sheriff Tubbs and his prisoner, Charles Woodward, the murderer of Sheriff Ricker, who was killed three weeks ago in the Rattlesnake Mountains while pursuing Woodward and two other escaped prisoners. Armed men are guarding the stage stations and others are watching the County Jail. Every street leading to the Jail is watched and it is almost certain that Woodward will be lynched unless the State troops interfere, Acting Governor Chatterton has instructed the Casper militia companv to be in readiness to move, but they probably will not be ordered out unless the Sheriff asks for assistance. This, it is thought; he will not dare to do, as the people seem determined to take the law into their own hands. Casper is filling up with cowboys, ranchmen, miners and others.

GOVERNMENT DISCOVERS THAT HAYES WAS INNOCENT Corporal of California Volunteers Unjustly Accused of Deserting in Face of the Enemy. The crimo of desertion from the United States army in the face of the enemy is considered one of tho most serious charges that can be preferred against a soldier. .Such an accusation was made against Corporal Hayes of Company D of the First California Volunteers, and there were highly sensational stories published about him in the papers at Manila and in this city. An investigation was made by the War Department and the stain that was cast upon Corporal Hayes, who was well known in this city, has been at last removed. ; ' Major Hugh T. Sime, who was an officer of the California volunteers anU who after the mustering out of the regiment joined the civil service of the United States at Manila, stated yesterday that Corporal Hayes disappeared in January, 1899. Some time before Sime left Manila he was waited upon by two sailors, who had been captured by Filipinos and taken to a camp in the mountains about thirty days' march out of Manila. There they fell in with Corporal Hayes, who was a prisoner in the hands of a band of Filipinos. The sailors further stated that there was no truth in the story published that Corporal Hayes had been shot in the trenches while deserting, but that on the contrary he had been seized a little way out of Manila while walking with a native woman and had been rushed to the mountain camp, where he died of consumption in January, 1901. The War Department, Sime said, was appealed to and made an Investigation, which resulted in obtaining verification of the statement made by the sailors. The result of that inquiry has been transmitted to Thomas J. McCreagh of tha Custom-house fn this city, who was an officer of the First California and to whose command the corporal was attached. Thus the Government has done Justice to a defamed man, tho-ugh he was not high, in the army. - . .'

Balfour's statement In the British, House of Commons yesterday regarding the Dutch Government's offer to help in bringing about peace in South Africa, but the Premier added that he was prevented by courtesy from disclosing 'any details concerning the note so long as the British Government had not published its contents, or until a reply to it was received.

The statement emanating from Paris that the powers were privy to the proposals of Dr. Kuyper. the Dutch, Premier, to Great Britain on the subject of peace in South Africa, and approved this step beforehand, is denied-without reservation here in so far aa tha German Government is concerned. The German Cabinet is maintaining an absolute neutral attitude, and will not concern itself with any thing that has the appearance of meddling in this matter. LONDON, Jan. 30. The Hague correspondent of the Daily Mail says ha is abl to announce on authority tnat tha Dutch note to Great Britain, after rehearsing the great concern of that Government at the prolongation of hostilities in South Africa, offered Us good offices in bringing them to a close. To this end Holland asked whether Great Britain would be willing to permit a Dutch commission to proceed to Sonth. Africa to enlighten the Boer leaders in the field as to the real position of affairs and more especially since It Is understood that there 13 not the slightest chance of intervention on the part of any European power and that the prolongation of hostilities is useless, if tha brava struggle can servo no further good purpose. The correspondent says the Dutch Government expressly announced in this note that it possesses no authorization whatsoever from the Boer leaders, either In Europe or South Africa, to take this suggested step, but that It appeals to Great Britain on the ground of common humanity, for military permission for the Dutch, commission to accomplish its mission of peace.

La Patrio this morning publishes an interview with Dr. Leyds. who denies that the representatives of the South African republics in Europ asked for tha mediation of Holland in South African affairs, or authorized Dr. Kuyper, the Dutch Premier, to make propositions for peace. "There can be no conditions for tha British Government to examine," said Dr. Leyds. "There is only ona condition; the British Government knows it sufficiently well and need not examine It further. From the Intentional ambiguity of Mr. Balfour's statement in the House of Commons it is evident that this is mere maneuver."

Catarrh is a lingering cold which refuses to yield to ordinary treatment. Catarrh usually starts with a cold In ttw head and If left unchecked in tills cllnut rarely fceta well of Itself. Aa fresh cold la taken tbe dlseuo spreads, retting deeper and deeper, creeping along the mucous membranes from nose to throat, from throat to windpipe, from windpipe to bronctlal tubes and from bronchial tubes to lung cells. The mucous membranes all connect, ona wit! another. Hence it is easy to spread from on part to another lined with this same membrane. Thl3 is why catarrh in the head soon affects th throat and finally tha stomach itaelf. bringing oa chronic catarrh of the stomach, which is a most obstinate form of dyspepsia. Everybody is now well agreed that catarrh ! A blood disease and not a local one, and the at. tempt to cure by local applications simply givei temporary relief from the purely local symptoms without the remotest effect in staying th progress of the. disease. There la a new preparation recently offered U the public that is apparently destined to d away with every other form of catarrh treatment. This new remedy is not a secret patent medicine, but is a large, pleasant tasting tablet conx posed of Eloodroot, Red gum from the Eucalyp. tua tree, and other valuable and harmless spe. ciflcs. which are taken Internally and seem, tt have a remarkably beneficial effect upon th blood and mucous membranes, apparently eliminating the catarrhal poison from the whol system. These tablets, while being pleasant, convenient and absolutely safe to use, have mad cures in long standing cases of catarrh tha'. are little short of marvelous. They are sol.l bj druggists under name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, and any catarrh sufferer who fcaa trtec Inhalers, lotions, oinunentj, salves, etc.. and realized their inconvenience and uselessnesj will fully appreciate the difference between mere palliative and a permanent cure after riving Stuart's Catarrh Tablets an Impartial trial. All druS3l3ts sell them at O'J cent3 for fuU sized package, and no matter where tho catarrt is located, in the head, throat, lungs or stomach.
