Nutting, L. Houston, W. Frank, Fredrick Hers and C. C. Bidwere, supervisors of Shasta County, are on a visit to Salinas.

They are on a tour of inspection throughout the State to gather ideas for plans for the new Hall of Records, which will soon be erected at Redding. These gentlemen were on their way to Southern California to see what offered there in the line of architectural possibilities to enable them to determine what is best and most expedient for their rapidly developing county. They have visited Stockton, Martinez San Jose, and when they were delayed at Salinas, concluded to see what this county offers. They feel well repaid for the trouble they took to inspect the county buildings, and told an Index reporter that they would go no farther south, but would return north and visit Woodland and Colusa and then go home. They expressed themselves as very much pleased with the structure and arrangement of the Recorder's office, saying that in the matter of light and convenient arrangement it is much the best of any 80 far visited.

They were shown through the jail and all the county offices. They said that it is their purpose to put $35,000 or $40,000 into a hall of records, which will be constructed so as to accommodate several other county officers who have been compelled to rent offices down town. They will soon call for competitive plans and specifications. DEATH OF JAMES M. QUIVEY.

Pioneer Who Beat the Donner Party Across the Plains. James M. Quivey, a member of one of the pioneer families of California, died yesterday at his residence 472 North Fourth street, San Jose. Deceased accompanied his parents in their eventful journey across the plains in 1846, and was a member of the party which is known in history as the Donner party. After many narrow escapes from the Indians, Mr.

Quivey's family separated from the party and arrived at Sutter's Fort seven months ahead of his fellow travelers and argonauts. Mr. Quivey was always fond of telling of this eventful trip. He resided in San Jose until 1861, then removed upon the Almaden road, about three miles from this city. In 1884 he bought a ranch of 900 acres on the Las Llagas creek, where he raised horses and cattle.

About ten years ago he returned to live in San Jose and purchased the handsome residence in which he died. Deceased leaves a widow and two sons. W. H. and C.

Secretary Charles R. Melander reports that E. A. Young of Newark, New Jersey, William Evans of New York, and Hi. F.

Steinmeir Ontario are among the recent enquirers of the Salinas City Board of Trade for property in Monterey County. A very encouraging feature, showing the class of people now being attracted to California, is that nearly all enquiries received are from people of moderate means who desire either a small farm or just a home. If we could only Induce our large land owners to place some of their holdings on the market it wouldn't be long Monterey County would have population of 100,000.

To-Day's Sunshine Helps the Situation Hourly and Trains Are Sent Out On Slow Schedules. The railroad situation at noon today was very much improved. In fact, it seemed to have been practically cleared. Station Agent Kelly, answering unnumbered questions from belated travelers without a sign of impatience, assured them all, saying that the best course. for them was to stay by their tickets and the trains would get them through in much less time than would be required back and try to make tueir points of destination by way of the San Joaquin valley lines.

Mr. Kelly said that the sunshine was helping the railroad very much in getting the breaks mended, and all his information was favorable for re sumption of train service this afternoon, all along the line. The damages between Salinas and Soledad were then repaired, and the break three miles beyond Soledad would be repaired and ready for trains at 2 o'clock. The trouble between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles was expected to be removed about 4 p. m.

today and trains sent through both ways between those cities. The delayed passenger trains that have been held here since Wednesday night were to be sent souta in three sections of No. 10, the first leaving at 1 o'clock and the others' following at ten-minute intervals. These trains will be run on a slow schedule, but it was expected -nat they will all get through without serious delay unless the weather changes and more rain softens up the track again. The two trains of No.

9 held at King City will leave there at 4 o'clock for Salinas and other points north. The passengers of train No. 10, which arrived from San Francisco at an early hour this morning, signed a petition to the railroad authorities asking to be taken back to Niles and sent south via the San Joaquin Valley, but the encouraging reports received from points of trouble made it improbable that it would be considered and it was not presented. Some of the delayed passengers appeared somewhat vexed at their plight, but most of them declared that Salinas was a good town to be held up in and as they all had enough to eat they were making the best of it. At 2:30 o'clock Mr.

Kelly reported that the trains had been sent out as arranged and everything was progressing more favorably than had been anticipated. The San Luis Obispo office reported that the road between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara is open, and the whole line, from San Francisco to Los Angeles will be running this evening. HAPPY NEWSPAPER MAN. Hold Up at Salinas Didn't Disturb His Nuptial Joy. Among the delayed passengers on train No.

10, that got no farther south than Salinas last night, none took, the situation more philosophically than Mr. and Mrs. Charles Henry Boek of Oakland, who are way to Southern California on their wedding tour. They were married at St. John's Episcopal Church, Oakland, on Wednesday evening, in the presence of many friends and in the midst of a profusion of flowers and tasteful church decorations.

The happy man is connected with the Oakland Tribune, and the bride was Miss Mabel Rawlings. While waiting at Salinas for traffic to be resumed they made a call at The Index office and received the customary journalistic blessing. HILLTOWN BRIDGE The Agenda mail carrier reports that river is cutting bank badly at south end of the Hilltown the bridge. At eleven o'clock today the water was within forty feet of the new land pier, and it is feared that, unless the eating current can be checked, the water will soon be flowing between that end of the bridge and the south bank of the stream, and the bridge may go out entirely. $5 REWARD $5 REWARD For information leading to conviction of the man who stole a turkey from M.
