OAKIiAND DAILY EVENTNTa TRIBUKE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1330. -5 4 ' 1 . j- t J 1 Mi; i : fill ' I INDUSTRIAL. Condition of the Manufacturing Trade in Oakland. Lomlwr Trade The Cotton Mills - The Planing Hills-The Nail Works-Box- Making A. Spring 'Boom. i - The outlook for the material industries ! hi this city is declare i by those interested i to be excellent. Everything indicates that tbe coming spring " will be exceedingly , prosperous for every class of industry in operation io Oakland, and as most of them do not depend wholly upon local consumption for 'profitable returns, the individual prosperity of the manufactories will be en. banced ! iu proportion to the general prosperity of the ' State, and coast. The labor market is easy and there are not many workinijraen out of employment. Even those who are idle are not i overssarily destitute- or in i-trait: ,ened circumstances, and they are all hopeful of the future when there is certain to be a greatly increased demand for their labor to supply the millef shops and facto- riea that are now mahipg preparations to meet ' te requirements of the expected revival.' . . ' THE LUMBER TRADE Is at present somewhat dull owing to the recent storms, which oecurinK a they did in January, have regarded the building season somewhat. Interviews thin morning with leading lumber .dealers art all to the same effect, namely, . that the s-asuu when t steady demand for lumber will jbe made will not betrin until about the middle of March. The great quantity of rain that has fallen in the lumber iegini has rendered logging extremely "difficult and in many instances impossible. This ia illustrated by the condition iif affairs in Humboldt county, where 36 finches of rain has fallen during the season, arid where the lumbering industry it .virtually suspended for the time being. ToVlemeequence is tbat uo large contract or lumber are being made and no very l-ktnj.ive building improvements are. in prr-ree, although a great number are b-.ing projected. ; ' ' BCLIXG PRICES.' ! . Bough p'he lumber is sold at tbe wharf at the rate b $15 per 1000 feet, and rough redwood kits at $18 per 1000. Pine floor, ingj is '...:. -rated at from $27 to $2ij, acceoijding to width; ; surface redwood ! is f worth SoO; rustic brings $31, and shingles are selling for; $2 per J ,000. There is a steady arrival of cargoes for tbe various yards, but these cargoes are not; as large or. frequent as they wiil be when the season is fairly J onpned. The schooner Birdie Miner froinj lasRtibuldt is stiHeharging 250,000 feet Of 'lumber for sTylor Co., and the San Buenaventura from' Cx bay. Oregon, has just dis-charged 20-,0$K feet of pine at Dean's wharf. The latter cargo is from the Marshfield mills. Taylor & Co. have nearly completed a new wharf at their yancis. The wharf is 300 feet in length and 40 feet wide, and wHl give this company ample capacity for all their trade during; the year..' ..- j' i THX PLANING MILLS. . 'Ve aire employing about forty men," said O. H. Burnham, of the firm of Barn-haul, Staodetord & Co., to The Tribi'ne rep.irtfr ' Oiir mill, whjn full-handed in the busy season, runs a force of over one . hundred and twenty-five men. The season has not yet opened and wi 1 probacy. uot i ! beginuntil sometime in March, when we expect to he enabled to increase our force i materially. 4 At present mill contracts do U not average abave $3,500; bat thare is considerable talk of a' leavy increase on , this rate, j iH)ave no idea, however, that ; there will be any great boom, although the season his every prospect of being an Bnusunlly prosperous one." - I THB HOSIERY HILL. . - 1 Superintendent' Williams,- of the Cain fornia Hosiery Company, was interviewed regardiug the present status of the mills on First street. He said that their working force numbered between 135 and 140 people, eighty per cent, of whom are girls . and young; women, all residents of Oakland. This force is somewhat larger than it was. at this time last year. The raw material used at this mill is California and Oregon wool, - and this staple has been found much superior to any other for the class of -goods they are, turning ' out. There is' an excellent market for the products of the mill, both in this, city and throughout the State, but the exports are more fav table owing to the fact that Oakland; is so close to San Krsmcisce. This fact,, however, affects other businesses. Tbe pay-roll of the mill aggregates $1,200 per week, and all (his money goes directly j THB OAKLAXD TRADESMEN, And circulates almost exclusively on thU side of the bay. The mill has been .in operation, hve years, and alter many -vicissitudes has at last secured a good foot- held, i and is on a. paying basis. Over $5,000 worthluf new machinery was purchased last year. This machinery included '- leggera, heelers, toers and footers, all of which must be used in the making of each stocking, i a snirt is iiiarmiactured on a knitting frame, a turni'ig-off machine and a aeamingij machine.' The mill, as at present operated, has a knitting capacity for . but) pounit oi clean wool ; for everyday in . the I -year. "There is not another mill that makes ctit goods as we do," continued Mr. Williams. "These good, although t hey are teamed, are practically seaniless, for the fabric is joined so neatly and skilfully as to be scarcely a seam at all." .-. - . "Are you enlarging the scope of jour trade ?" it. quired 'the reporter. "We sent an agent to Chicago two weeks ago," replied Mr. Williams, "and we now have j I' t - 14 PERMANENT OFFICE In that-city. We have alwajs had a good trade in the Northwest f r our class of goods, owing to the' fact that our product, manufactured as it is from California -and Oregon-wool, is better adapted to that cold . climate than any other. The prospects lor the c ming year are good, and eepecially for this mill, which was started at the tail end of a boom, in 1881. Tbe Eastern mills had manufactured large surplus stocks and the market began flood. ''.This stock has all been worked off, and the manutac'uring -ft now begin ning again wilh renewed vigor, and this , company en .now compete on a clear market,? tdij the merits of the products 'manufactured. We are not afraid of the results of this competition. Our selling sea eon begins in July and August, and we are making ample preparations tor the de ' mand. ! I! j . I 1 THE-NAIL 'WORKS. y Superintendant Harris, of the Pac'.fic Iron and Nail Works, stated that all dif ficulties- with the nailei-s ha J been amica bly adjusted, and that all the machines were in i operation. There are 200 hands employ- d at the present time, and the out-, put is 850 kegs per week of assorted nails of all sizes. These nails -are used almost exclusively throughout the coast, but large quantities aie shipped to foreign countries, including Australia, the Sandwich Islands' . and Japan, j The local coast demand is at vresent aonoewhat dull, owing, probably. to the fac that the recent wet weather has retarded building operations. "Y6u employ a large number of boys, do vou not?" asked the reporter. "We have a full -complement of boys as many as we need but most of our employees are y Jung men and skilled nailers. -To tell you the truth," said Mr. Harris, withi a doubtful smile, the Califor nia boy. aa a class, has not, in my experi- , L I S' ence, proved an oterwneiming success. '.He is rather -inclined to work tor present wages without ' X REGARD TO THE FUTURE. ; He labors faithfully enough for a shtrt time and then he quits to. spend what he has earned, rule." He ; is r.ot ermanent, a a A nailer Yearns first-class wages, does he not?" , 'A pood workman will average eight dollars 1 a day, and from that to fifteen dollar?. H 'IWby has the scale been placed at such m hiah fiffure!' "Well, the truth of tbe matter is, tbe n&ta ia not so high when you consider the that the trade is an exceedingly ud bealthv one, and that nailers as a rule are e short lived. They are working iron and dry grindstones and that notwithstanding every precaution, the fine particle that fill the air get into the lungs and induce what is called nailer's consumption. Toe lung,are literally cut to piece. It was at first thought that the trouble was in the stomach, but post mortem examinations have shown that the disease is located in the lungs. The longs of a nailer wh baa died of consumption will sink in watea like so much lead," m ' - "Do you come io competition with the Jodsoo works, at all?" ---- "No, tbeyare turning out adiLVrent class of work altogether such as latb'ciails and tackk, and are working under the rules oi tre i act Association." ' "You I ' expect some new hortlyT l ! machines Y ea, but 1 cannot say when they will arrive. 1'jiiey have leen ordered j from the American Nail Machine Company, , of Ashtabula, Ohio. I I THE BOX FACTORY. V J It wat ascertained at the Eagle Box Factory, lat the foot of Market street, that, they areTemploying at the present time forty hands. This is the only box factory in Oakland, and has control of nearly the entire trade in - this county, besides exporting) largely to VacavilleL Sonoma ana otner iruit-growing counties, in is factory hjdds its own ia a brisk competition with! the San Francisco, Sacramento and Truck ee factories, although Jtha prices are necessarily low in consequence, on all classes if their ' product-. A : heavy trade is tarried on in the manufacture of. fruit I boxes, but there' is little more than a bare profit in their manufac ture, the return on this class of jboxes- being regelated by the quantity 'of fruit grown during the season and the surplas supply of boxes on) the mar- ket. Thel season begins in June, . when there' is la steady demand from tbe cancers makes and packers.

The factory re ceives its J umber from Puget Sound, the bulk Of the lumber being 1 spruce, which they supply to the local market, the impsr- tation ot i this class ot lumDer being unprofitable to- the regular dealers who buy it oily as they have orders for it.

Salvation Ileroea.Wlio Object to the Roll of the " stirring : Drum. The Saivjation Army barracks abuts upyn the As ia ge homestead .of H. J. Inwall. erally known; the Salva- tion Army - has an .alleged band-at once be presumed It will by tbe intillgent reader that the existence of Mr. and Sirs. In wall can better! be fm- Idescribed. It is known that the Grand Army of the Republic will hold ' its next Urstd .hncampment in bad b ran- cisoo. Mr. , Inwall is an enthusiastic Grand -Army man. .Mrs. Inwall is equally nevcted to I the cause of the suffering soldier. She is patriotically drill ing a drum dorps to take part in thie exer cises attendant upon the encampment. She is drilling them at her home, jwh'ich, as has been Isaid, adjoins the Salvation army cattle. I Some of the Savationists, though iqured to the rigoirs of their banc, could' not stand the drum corps. So one Harrv Walktjr, who worships at .he castle had Mrs. Inwall arrested for listurbiDg the peace. This charge seemed a little ludicrous, in the band, sol Walker changed his and last night had tbe ladv arrested for disturbing a religious meeting. The Sal vation Army refuses to taks the resnonsi bihty for the arrest on its shoulders. vMrs. Inwall will be tried before a jury some time next .month, should tbe case ever come tq trial. THORNTON HUDSON. The Slajrfer of Hichard Doc It i lie I ' Has His Claim Confirmed. I I he claim lot Thornton Hudson to cer tain lands lying close to the' boundary line of Alameda I and Contra Costa cohnties. and formind part of the land formerly claimed by uarpentier and others as in cluded in the Sbrante grant, has been confirmed bjj Secretary .Lamar. Hudson settled on the land a good many yeah ago. but after the! land was declared not Within the Sobrantej grant some two years, ago, Richard Docking, of S-n,Franci coj carnal out and squajtted on the land. Docking I got 'a lucgment of tbe first in stance in I his favor fronvj- the Land Commissioner in- Sn Fraacieo. Hudson coi-kinued on a part of the 1-nd pending his appeal to the , Secretary (of the Interior, and there were frequent squabbles between the Itival claimants.

Testimony of Eye-witnesses A Witness Talk About Cassidy-Oalvin'a Age. Dull After The Tribune went to press yesterday, in the trial of James Cassidy for the murder of William Galvin on September 29th last, Daniel CroBsan testified: I saw the scuffle at Fink's store between Cassidy and Galvin; I heard Galvin scream; Jim Nolan and I got out of our wagon and ' separated them; they were clinched right across the scales; I told Galvin, "Go on and get in your buggy;" he walked around the south end of the trough to his buggy ; Cassidy was then west of the trough; Galvin was facing towards his team; his hand was on the wheel or the dash-board; Cassidy came up to the trough and wrenched the bucket c.nt and struck Galvin; Galvin made some remark before Cassidy struck him; called him "a thief" or something, I don't know what; I did not hear Cassidy say anything; Galvin fell about southeast;' when he fell bis head was turned across the street; the buggy; was about, three' feet from the trough; he lay right on . bis back; be was catacornered with the trough; Mrs. Galvin and her . 'daughter were standing on the sidewalk when the blow was struck: I did not see Galvin Walk up to the north end of the planking after tbe scuffle and holler, so far as I know; after the scuffle I went about 100 feet down for my team and, brought it up to the trough; Cassidy and Galvin staid arguing on the sidewalk; Galvin walked round tbe trough to his buggy and Cassidy lifted tbe bucket, ji JAMES NOLAN Testified: I saw Cassidy and Galvin on tbe day of the killing; I was driving along the road with Crpesan;. I saw them clinching alongside the bar-room door; I told Cassidy to Btop; Galvia walked to one side; I talked to Cassidy for a while; Galvin walked round the trough to his buggy; Mrs. Galvin was close to Galvin as be was getting in, and Tso was the girl; Cassidy took up the bucket; they were talking as the blow was struck, but I don't know what it was; I was talking to Cassidy at the time and was a couple of feet away; Cassidy said nothiog to Galvin as heBtruck him; tbe very first move Cassidy made with the bucket after he took it up was to strike Galvin; he took the bucket by the handle; I did not see Cassidy fooling with the bucket before he struck; I V not looking that way; Galvin felhf when he was struck; he was on his back, his head south and parallel with the trough; I don't know whether Galvin said anything to Cassidy before the blow was struck; my attention was first drawn to the difficulty by Mrs. Galvin, when I was about half-way between Cas.-idy's and Fink's; the only scream I heard was from the little girl. Galvin had his hand up one time to strike Cassidy while they were clinched After they were separated 1 commenced to talk to Cassidy and we walked down towards the trough. Galvin walked to his buggy. The front wheel's were right up to the (trough. Galvin was standing between the wheels about to get in. I believe-Galvin was talking as he stood by the hnggv, but I don't know - what, he ' said. Cassidy was talking to me in an ordinary tone about the trouble be had with Galvin. Cassidy did not move from the spot he was standing on before he struck the blow. I did not bear Galvin use any expression like "a damn thief" to Cassidy at that time. Cassidy and I got to the trough before Galvin came round to the buggy. To-day's Proceedings. Dr. J. M. Young was the first witness called this morning. He testified: I am a practising physician and a regular graduate in medicine; I was called to Mrs. Fink's store on September 29tb; I drove out there and found Mr. Galvin lying in the back part of the store; I found a cm-tused wound with a small opening in tbe side of the head near the back; it was impossible for him to survive any It-ngtb of time; I gave him a stimulant and tried to raise the bone which was pressing on the brain; he died in a'short time; the skull was reduced to pulp at the place of the wound; I don't know whatcaused the wound except from what was told me; the wound was quite large;. the wound was necessarily fatal from the fracture of the skull; the whole side of the head was smashed. , Cross-examined I came here two years ago from San Francisco und have b-en practicing medicine since; tbe whole side of bis head was smashed in; tbe bruised space was about two and a half inches in diameter and-. was rather round than square. Glascock Was it such a wound as could have been caused by a fall on the edge of a box? .The witness Yes, sir. S. Baden testified: I live at San Pablo avenue station; I saw Galvin on September 29tb; I heard a woman scream and I ran down and saw an old man lying on the ground and helped to carry him into the house; when I ran out of my store I saw Cassidy run away with a bucket in his hand and engage in a scuffle with Mr. O'Xeil. I did not see the blow struck. rtie wound was on the right side of the bead towards tbe back. Cassidy was running with the bucket towards his house when 1 saw him farst. ' F. GOTETTE ' Testified: I live near the railroad cross ing on San Pablo avenue; I saw the de fendant on September 21th; I heard a scream while I wat greasing a buggy out" side my place; I saw Galvin standing beside his buggy and Cassidy raised a tucket and swung it over his bead, striking Galvin. Galvin fell down, and Cassidy walked off toward his home; Galvin was turned partly sidewise toward Cassidy, but with more ot bis back than his front -turned that way; I was 300 to 850 feet away when 1 heard tbe scream; from the time until I saw the blow struck it was about a couple of minutes; I knew who the parties were when I saw them; L could tell- it was Galvin by the team which he always stopped there. I could see that Galvin had been shaved that day at the distafca I stood wht n I first saw them. - GUsock Did anybody ever sav to vou it would be a good thing to get Jim Cassidy off the road? v The Witness Yes, sir. The District Attorney Who said so? The Witness About a dozen people: I can't call their names. Glascock Dili any of the witnesses for the prosecution say so? Keddy A witnens cannot be impeached in that way without having fin opportun ity to defend himself. The question was allowed. . Glascock Did you ever hear Mrs. Fink sav this? i The witness I never heard her say so to me. but that s the talk; 1 staid at Mrs. Galviii's place for two months after, the ,-kiIIuik; sue gave me about 5ft when 1 was up to her place; I helped tbe boys to plow a little. i i Afternoon .Session. ! ' Thomas Jones testified: I knew Galvin iiico 18U2; I worked on a ranch in San Pablo valley adjoining his; he was a man of GO years or more; I had a conversation with (Jassioy about ualvio last May or June, on the , San Pablo road;. (.Jassidy said that Mrs. Ualvin owed Mrs. .., Cassidy $300. . and she had asked Galvin in Cassidy 'a saloon about the money and he had said she might go to hell and find it. Cassidy said he was glad he was not there at the time, because if he had he might have struck and killed him. The evidence was ordered stricken out On cross examination the witness was asked: Did not you once consult Cassidy about a lawsuit in which vou were concerned. and say that our lawyer had sold you out ana consult mm about getting another? The witness I did not. Cassidy (hissing through his teeth) x ou re a liar, , i - .Glascock Hush! Hushl' ' lbe witness i have nothing against either Cassidy or Galvin. Tbe District Attorney then said the prosecution would rest. They would not call Mrs. Galvin or her daughter. - Mr. (J lascock said they had had every reason to believe there would have been at least three-more witnesses for the State, and they were not quite ready to go on with the defense. He asked for an adjourn ruent until to morrow. Brearty It will facilitate matters, as I believe that if the adjournment is granted we will be able to get throngb with.pur evidence to-morrow. The Court In that case, I will grant an adjournment. , Hunting for ia Camp.

' .. r. . . ... ..... AN INFERNAL MACHINE j f ound On the Bench of tbe City Police Jndge. John"Wilds is janitor ot the City Hall. While making bis dusting rounds this morniog he found a very suspicious-looking package on the bench of' tbe Police Judge. Wilds at once thought of. communards, nihiljsts, dynamitards, socialists, arson, explosion, cataclysm, powder, gun cotton, wreck. ruin, rumble, roar, crash, mangle, gore, death, and all the other tvery-day terrora and matter-of-fact horrors. His mind concocted a theory and jumped to a conclusion. Of course some reckless violator of the laws of Gcd and , man had been summarily sat upon by Judge Daniels, and had been measured out a good strong dose of Police Court justice. Of course this thiet, burglar, train-jumper, murderer, bill .- 'distributor, rapist, barn bunker misdemeanant, or by whatever name the blood-thirsty vidian might be called, had nursed within his heart a dark revenge. Of course this package was chapter two of that revenge. Of course it was an infernal machine. The outer view.jof the piece of devilish mechanism was not particularly prepo sessing. A very. dirty piece of toweling was wrapped aboi the supposed petard and tied with a still dirtier strip of rag. Wilds . did not care ' to ' touch the thing. Neither did the trustie who slave beneath his eagle eye. Neither did . Police Clerk Joe Kenner. Neither did Court Bailiff Sam Mitchell. But these brave men did not care to see their Judge summarily translated through the roof in a cloud of smoky glory, -leaving in his wake a sulphurous odor. That would never do. Finally, with trembling f; fingers, a truBty daintily took bold of the furthermost corner of - tbe towel. Gently .be lifted the bundle. No mother fondling her first-born babe ever exercised more care than did that trusty while bearing his precious : burden into the police office. The others played- peek-a-boo with, the trusty from behind desks, doors, tables or whatever of substance offered a protecting ntcrvention In the upper police office no one cared to form a closer acquaintance with' the bundle, and all the assembled officials treated Wilds "and his trusty with distant politeness-. Tbe "bomb" was taken below, whee 1nany of its pronunciatory brethren have reposed in the past. In the lower police Office Wilds broached his delicate misBijn. Would Sergeant Fletcher kindly open the little token of respect and esteem ? Sergeant Fletcher disdainfully replied, "Excuse my back." One officer had a family dependent upon his exertions for their matutinal beans and afternoon soup. Another said he had forgotten to take out a life insurance policy. A third was willing to open the package, but he did not care' to soil his fingers on the dirty towel. At last Fletcher agreed to -untie tbe towel. He did so, and exposed to view an awe-inspiring box. Then he paused to reflect. Curiosity, thy name'; was not Man on this particular occasion. Finally I'rison Keeper Rand was appealed to. Now this Rand is a man who rarely Las anything to say. He never sits around with the other officers and boasts of his deeds of doughty daring, or brags of capturing vicious and outlawed malefactors. He is simply a matter-of-fact prison keeper, from whom, some how Fe8cape ancj wn quietly rules the hundred or other, prisoners do -not manage to and odd jail birds under his charge as easily as if they were kindergarten children. .Coolly he opened the box- of un-revealed horrors.- Quietly he unshrouded this mysterious death. In the meantime the other officials had urgent business elsewhere. It was necessary that one should inspect the beli-tower in the rear of the City HalL The morning would have lost its glory had not another gone out to sniff the vagrant odors from Hutchison's nursery. Another went toj the post office for the mail. A few.-more daring than the rest, sought the remotest recesses of the prison to inquire the health of the prisoners confined there. Most of them were willing to acknowledge that the City , Hall, mounting skywards with a "dull, - sickening -thud," wouM be as grand a sight as a "flight of thunderbolts;" " but then, you . know, distance lends a peculiar enchantment to that particular kind of view. Rand slowly unwrapped tbe parcel. Tbe others held their hreath and anxiously awaited the "ps8sh, boom, ah !" dtnoununt, ' The infernal machine was found to be composed of the following death-dealing ingredients: One new handkerchief, remarkably clear;; one a'monri in the shell; one crippled knife; several unreceipted bills; one letter, written in Italian; one cigar of the brand ' known to commerce as "Stinkadora." There was no explosion not even of laughter. Rand Chuckled cynically. Tbe others again gathered about with a cautious but "ho's afraid?" sort of mien and expression. An owner was wanted for the death-dealing cigar and the pestilential bills. This owner was found in the person of an aged and demented Italian peddler. The shudder of the morning has merged into the laugh of the afternoon. it WIFE AND CHILD." The California Company at f Oakland Theater. the At the Oakland Theater last night the California Theater company presented for the first time in this city the strong emo tional drams, Wife and Child, It is a story told with dramatic fire and force that holds the audience spell-bound from the rise to the fall of the curtain. It is pre sented with the Same cast and effects as in San Francisco, aRd will be repeated tonight. To-morrow night 1 Prisoner for Life will be given for the first time. ,nH will hold the boards until Sund&v nihf. inclusive. - The company includes Mr. and Mrs. McK.ee Rankin, Frank Mordaunt, Mr. D. H. Harkins. Mr. J. J. Wallace. Mr. .George Osbourne, Mr. Joseph Holland; Mr. C G. Ray, Mr. N. H. Kirk-land, Mr. Robert Murray, Mr. C. G. Greene, Miss Mabel Bert, Miss Adela Waters, Mrs. i. M. Bates, Miss Emma Marble, Miss. Annie Lock hart and numerous -others. This is a strong company. Thev are all competent actors and deserve the patronage of the public. It is ' the encourage ment ot such . companies as this that in duces first-class dramatic- representations on this side of the bay, while at the same time such encouragement tends to raise the tone and character of theatrical represen tations genet ally. THE RIVER'S BURDEN. Recovery and Burial of the Body of J. B. Christensen. un tne inn inst., J. a.

TO-DAY'S DISPATCHES . ) : Military Salnte to be Fired Over Hancock's Remains. Ohio Legislative Committee Ar-rests Clerk of Hamilton Co- k Large Livery Stable at St. Louis, with Many Horses, Burned. Quiet Returned to London Relief Proposed for the Unemployed.' SPECIAL TO THE TRIBUNE Livery Stable Burned Stupid Policemen. St. Locis, February 11th. Mullaly's livery stable was burned at an. early hour this morning. The fire originated in the hay loft and spread rapidly. The employees of the stable tamed their attention first to saving the horses, 65 in number, and had taken out about seven of them from the burning building, when two policemen ar rived, and thinking that the employees were thieves, clubbed them into insensibility, and thus destroyed the only chance of saving the stock. The remaining fifty-eight horses were burned. Tbe total lots is estimated at $120,000. Indiana in the IV'ortU-weat. Montreal, February 11th. A letter has been received here from a prominent man at Battleford, who is considered to be well informed on the state! of affairs in the Northwest, which states that everything points to another rebellion in the spring, and that the presence of 2,000 troops at the present moment would not have the effect of preventing one. The Indians are at present restless and excited. They have little or ' nothing to eat, and think they might as well die fighting as from starvation. 1 The Hamilton County Election. Colcmbds, February 11th. Daniel G.- Dalton, Clerk of the Hamilton County Courts, was arrested this morxing at the instance of the Committee on Privileges and Elections of the House and brought before that body for contempt in refusing to tbe committee to make a photographic copy of the tally-sheet of precinct A, Fourth Ward, Cincinnati, and also in failing to .produce the original returns before the committee at Columbus.

It is believed that the President will not fill tbe vacancy caused by Gen. Hancock's death until after the retirement of Poper next month, when nominations are likely to be made to fill the two vacancies in the grade of Major-General and the second grade in Brigadier-General. 1 t The funeral of Cieu.IIancock.

Burns, of San Francisco, went to the Treasury Department yesterday in connec tion with his application for the place of Supervising Inspector of Hulls.

Kins Milan Not Disbanding : Troops: Vienna, February 11th. The Neavt FreU Presse has received a telegram from Belgrade, saying that the reports that King Milan had ordered the disbandment of his troops are not confirmed. - Pillsburyand Chase lnveetlea- . ' -tion, Washington, February 11 th. PiHsbury and Chase, nominated respectively to be Internal Revenue Collectors of tbe East district of Massachusetts and the district of Maine, were heard this morning by the Senate Committee on Finance in their own defense. They explained their connection with the so-called Garce- lbn controversy and declared that tbe subsequent action of the State authorities was a vindication of theirfcourse. The London Disturbances. London, February 11th. By-8 o'clock last night a crowd that numbered many thousands gathered in Cumberland Mar ket. The lowest criminal classes of Lon don were represented by a strong contin gent, intent upon harassing and insulting the police. At 9 o'clock Hyndman, Wil-' liams and other Socialist leaders appeared and were greeted with uproarious shoots of welcome. They held a short consulta tion and resolved to abandon the attempt to hold a meeting because, as they said, tbe dense fog that prevailed prevented their distinguishing true unemployed workingmen from loafers. The annunce-ment was then made that the meeting was adjourned nntil Tuesday. As the crowd slowly dispersed cheering for .the Socialist leaders, the disorderly element again man ifested itself. The police were jeered at and, stoned, but easily drove their assail, ants from the ground. The vigorous action of the South Lon don authorities compares favorably with the inaction of the police at the Trafalgar Square meeting on Monday. Mounted constables, armed with cutlasses and revolvers, assisted the police on foot in dispersing the mob. A gratifying feature, was tbe fact that, many small tradesmen and a number of bona fide workingmen joined the police in repulsing tb rioters, who, dreading the encounter, quickly dispersed. The police had been informed early in the day of a con -piracy of thieves and inhabitants of the common lodging-houses to make South London the starting-point of a pillaging expedition Precautions were accordingly taken to pre vent disorder, j The scare is witnout a parallel in the history of London. Tens of thousands of desperate men were gathered in the streets, and only needed some one more reckless than themselves toJead them to commit the wildest excesses. Everything is quiet in the metropolis this morning. Tradesmen have reopened thir shops and business is proceeding as usual. Considerable uneasiness, however, is still felt lest there should be further riotous demonstrations. Three hundred unemployed workingmen called upon the Lord Mayor to urge upon him the necessity of doing some thing to relieve ' the distress among the unemployed of London. . The Lord Mayor courteously received the deputation and promised to personally assist the distressed people so far as his means would permit him.- He added that the. Lord Mayor's fund for the relief of the dir. tressed poor of the city,- which had been started Tuesday, already amounted to 6,000. EAST OAKLAND. Creatures of Heroic mold Who Thirst for Oore and aVotisr for Mrs. T. a.Wilaon and Mies Maud E. Wilson arrived from New Hampshire yes terday, and will winter in East Oakland. Thomas Hill, tbe i artist, yesterday moved from his home near Mills Seminary to San-Francisco. r J. J. Valentine and family are now in full occoDancv of their new mansion on ThirtMnth avnne. The old cvTjress hedge in front of Mrs. M. E. Austin's old property4 at the corner oi Jjivuui avenue ana x.aefc iuiukcuui street, is beins cleared away. Mrs. C J, Hawley has purchased most of tbe prop erty. There ia a little more life on the Eighth- street bridge. More men have been put to work, and the spiking of the planks is being poshed with something like vigor. There now seems a prospect that the work will ht pom nip tori and the bridsre thrown open for travel before the babes of to-day have become centennariana. Mrs. S. B. Watson, of the Sobrante, returned yesterday from a trip through the Eastern States. I i Mrs. B. M. Atchinson moved to-day into the house on the corner of Twelfth avenue and East Fourteenth street, nntil recently, occupied by J. J.. Valentine's family. John Gray and AL Williams, twoyeung men generally Known about .bast uaic-land, have tired of the drudgery of every-day life, and have developed thirst for core and a longing for war's dread alarms. They went to military headquarters in San Francisco to-day for the purpose of passing the required physical examination and enlisting in the U. S. Army. Now may the marauding Indian tremble and turn sickly pale, for his doom is sealed. Soon the heroic Gray will camp upon bis trail and stalk into his camp with a "melodramatic "Ha ! Ha!" to free from bondage the captive bells of the arroyol Gray's imagination pictures himself as f acing - a whole horde of - fierce . savages, his only weapon being his trusty shoemaker's awl. On the obverse of the dream, the Indians lie stark and cold in death, while, as the awl drips buckets of blood, tbe hero clasps the liberated maiden t his bosom with the heartfelt "Heaven be. praised; yon are saved, me chsild." In times bf peace Johnny will teach the noble red man to make calf-skin boots out of the smoked scalp-locks hanging in his wigwam, while Williams will inculcate into his copper-colored chest-protector a love for sashes, blinds and doors, and. teaches him to shun firewater as much as j he now does any Other style of water. Ab, what a ' glorious thing it. is to be a defender of - one's country against the wild aesanl's of the quartermaster's clerk and tbe sutler. What a noble thing it is to be a target for the Indians at $13 a month?. Please pass the glory. ! T Last evening one of the itinerant cais of the Oakland, Brooklyn and Fruit Vale street car Hue was delayed for aome time at the crest of the Tenth avenue bill by a broken brake-Jeam. Ground has been broken for a row of cottages to be erected by W. D. Thomas cn Seventh avenue, between : East Jif- teeth and East Sixteenth streets.

The flags on the engine house and Brunje's store are displayed at half-mast out of respect to the memory of G enera Hancock. Some days since, J. King and P. King, two brothers living on the Sobrante, seriously beat an old Portuguese named E. Sebray, who had them arrested for bat tery. Yesterday, in Justice Mathews Court, both defendants pleaded guilty, and. were fined $10 apiece. Tbey paid the fine. and as soon as a good opportunity offered, they started in , to abuse the old Portuguese again, with the result that a warrant is ' now being issued for their arrest for disturbing the peace. Last-night one of constable O'Donnell's deputies arrested four tramps for sleeping in an out-building near Fruit Vale avenue ithont tbe permission of the owner thereof. The proprietor ' of the California Pot tery are discharging all the Chinamen in their employ and supplying their places with white men. Some sixteen Chinamen have already been discharged and their places filled.- A few Chinamen yet remain, but these will be discharged as soon as white men can be found sufficiently skilled in the potter's art to take their places.
