12 FROZEN TO DEATH. Overtaken by an Arctic Blizzard. EXPERIENCE OF HUNTERS. One Died and the Other Was Badly Frost-Bitten. REPORTS FROM THE WHALERS. Arrival of the Steam Bark Narwhal From Herald Shoals— The Season's Catch. The steam whaling bark Xarwhal arrived yesterday from Her Id Shoals after an absence from civilization since March 12, 1892. The Xarwhal has spent two summers and three winters in tbe icy northern seas and has returned with the record of having made tbe largest catch of whales ever scored to a "blubber hunter." The first season the ship caught nine whales, the second the unheard of number of fiftyfive, and this last season only five. Captain Smith said that he had very little to add to the history of his vessel that has not already been received here except the adventures of two of his men who went out on a banting expedition last April. One of the poor fellows lost his Jife and the other had both feet so badly frozen that the toes of each had to be amputated. Tne sufferer was sent to the Marine Hospital from the Xarwhal yesterday. The particulars in the case of the hunters were then narrateu. William Hassley and John Riggan were sailors on the Narwhal. They volunteered to take a sled and previsions enough for a week and go after deer, fresh meat being needed on the bark. They started out one afternoon in the early part of April, worked their way in a northeasterly direction over the low ground and hills. They did not have as much success as hunters as desired, so after journeying for about sixty miles from the ship they decided to turn back. When only about twenty-five miles from the vessel a terrific snowstorm, accompanied by a high wina, came up. The travelers were making their way over an extensive track of level ground when the storm arose. They came to a halt and took shelter beside the sled, their backs toward the wind, hoping to keep warm until the sleet ceased to drive. It grew colder and colder. The blizzard had full sweep of a vast stretch of plains and swooped down upon them with increasing fury. The snow piled up on the sled and almost buried the two men beneath its white covering. It was then that the two men hurriedly unpacked their traps, unstrapped their tent and pitched it during a temporary lull iv the storm. It was impossible to keep their oil stove lit beneath the roof of the canvas house, however, and the cold gradually crept upon its victims. The wind veered a few points and blew even more fiercely than before. The tent was whirled away, leaving the hunters exposed. Their clothing froze stiff, and it was with great difficulty that they managed to move about sufficiently to cause their blood to circulate. Biggan commenced to suffer fearfully. First one of his feet, then the other, was frozen hard and stiff. His left arm also had become powerless. He wiithed iv pain, cursed, prayed and screamed in his agony, until the cold seemed to master him entirely; then he sank numb and unconscious to the ground. It was only the matter of a few hours when he died. Hassley bore up bravely. He removed some of the dead man's clothing and wrapped himself in it. The fatal drowsiness nearly overcame him, but be fought it with all his will, managing to master his feelings, though the deadly frost bite had already nipped the toes of bis left foot. The storm partly ceased. The sleet did uot drive so fiercely and the sharp arrows of ice that assailed the face and hands like sharp needles, such as the Lilliputians shot at Gulliver, melted into a nebulous vapor of fog. Twenty-five long miles were between Hassley and the Narwhal, but he bravely determined to tramp that distance, dragging the sled with Biggan's dead body on it, aided by his dog team. Every step was an agony, for the moissture had got into the man's snoes and frozen at the toes of both feet. How he reached the ship he scarcely knows himself. Captain Smith did everything to allay the sufferer's agony. Captain Tilton of the whaler Newport offered to perform the necessary surgery, and Hassley's injured members were amputated. Tilton made a very fair job of the undertaking, and probably saved the man's life. When removed to the hospital yesterday Hassley was feeling In good spirits, and it is expected that he will pull through all right. Coming down the coast the Narwhal found rough weather. She passed through the gale that bad been raging off the northern coast aud was damaged somewhat by the blow. The catch of whales for the balance of the fleet is reported as follows: Baleana, 5; Orca, 3; Belvedere, 3; Mermaid, 1; Alice Knowles, 1; Triton, 1; California. 5; Andrew Hicks, 3; Beluga, 4; Grampus, 2; Jeanette, 1; Karluk, 5; Kosario, 2: Thrasher, 2; Wanderer, 2. This is a small catch, but it may be just as well for the bone dealers and oil men that it is. Had a big catch been reported this season the price of bone would have dropped 40 per cent. Bone will now command a better figure than it was thought that it would. An Englishman known as Count de Saville is expected to come to this city on the Jeanette. Re has been wintering for four seasons near the Mackenzie River. The use of Dr. Price's Baking Powder stamps every woman who uses it as a model housekeeper. English Postal Officials. Postmaster McCoppin had a party of distinguished visitors yesterday. They were J. D. Rich, Postmaster and Surveyor of the Liverpool Postal district, James J. Cardin, Receiver and Accountant-General of the Luudon Post-office, and Lewin Hill, assistant secretary of the London Postoffice. The gentlemen, who are stopping temporarily in the city, inspected all the departments and workings of the local Postoflice. Almost a Failure. The grape-growers of Napa County have nearly finished picking their fruit. The vintage this year has not been a very fruitful one. In fact judging; from all reports thus far received at \ the Viticultural rooms the Napa County growers will realize from their vineyards only one third of a nominal crop. Xot only will the crop be very small but the quality of the is very inferior. The bunches are small and are deficient of sugar properties. BURGLES CHUNK OF WOOD. He Uses It With Effect Upon Fred Schroeder's Head. A restaurant-keeper named A. Burgle, whose place is at Col Clay street, got himself into trouble yesterday afternoon. It was all on account of the pertinacity of a fish-peddler, Fred Schroeder by name. Schroeder made two attempts to sill Burgle some fish, but without success. In revenge Schroeder threw a stone through the front window of the restaurant and broke it. He then ran away. Several hours later Burgle saw Schroeder in tne street, and, picking up a piece of wood, he hurried "Ut alter him. He caught him on Montgomery 6treet and proceeded to beat him on the head with the wood. A crowd gathered, and sympathy was against the wielrter of tbe wood. Officer McGee came up and arrested Burgle, thereby saving him from being roughly bandied by the crowd. Schroeder was taken to the Receiving Hospital, where it was found that his bead was severely bruised. Burgle was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. It is likely that Schroeder will be charged with malicious mischief and disturbing the peace. TRIED TO ESCAPE. A San Quentin Convict's Bold Attempt. He Endeavors by Means of a Rag Rope to Elude a Life Term, but Without Avail. A desperate but, as it turned out, an abortive attempt to escape the oppressive terror of a life term was made early yesterday morning at the State prison, San Quentin. The "hero" of the attempt was Convict Sykes, who. upon conviction of the crime of murder, was some time ago consigned to the prison for the term of his natural life. Ever since his incarceration the vision of escaping has absorbed Sykes, rendering him apparently docile and entitled to the report of being a "good prisoner." But beneath all this apparent resignation it seems that Sykes nourished a secret hope of making a break. He could afford to disregard the petty temporary indulgence insubordination when supported by the idea that his obedience would lull suspicion of his hidden i mject. Sykes' compliauee with the prison rules increased to the border ot apathy, and the warden was uot surprised one day lately to learn that Sykes was sick and had been sent to the sick ward. 18-re the discipline is necessarily relaxed, and the convict, tired of prison life, deemed that his opportunity bad arrived. About 1 o'clock yesterday morning he stole from his bed under tne pretext of visiting an adjoining room, where he was alone. Duriug the time that he had been in the sick ward he had employed every available minute in the manufacture of a rag rope, which he now produced and fastened so as to use it in the descent from a window. The rope was far from strong, but the descent was safely accomplished, the landing being made between the factory and the old hospital. But though Sykes bad escaped from the sick ward he was stili within the shadow of the terrible walls, the system of whose custodianship be was thus blindly attempting to penetrate. Guard Browning was patroling the grounds between ihe old hospital and the factory and caught a glimpse of Sykes as he crouched in a shadow. He started toward him, told him to hold up bis hands, and Sykes' fair dream of freedom straightway dissolved, leaving not a reck behind. The discomfited "lifer" was unceremoniously marched to the guardhouse and hustled into the dark cell to brood over the delusive promises of a free imagination. VETERAN ODD FELLOWS. Flourishing Condition of the Order Generally Indicated. Owing to the meeting of the Grand Encampment a. Santa Rosa last week the regular meeting of the Veterans was deferred until last night. A. large assemblage of the old workers gathered in Eureka Hall, President George T. Shaw presiding. The following were admitted to membership; George W.Richardson of Willows, Edward Price of San Luis Obispo, Peter Eastman of Bloomfield. C. F. Sadowsbi of Oroville.John Oppenheimer mid George Green of San Francisco. President Shaw announced that a number of new lodges had recently been instituted and others are forming, notably one to be organized in San Jose on November 13 with 150 members, and one iv Los Angeles with a large charter membership. Brief remarks were made by L. W. S. Downs, H. S. Winn, A. S. Jeffries, Daniel Sewell, W. F. Slater of Ohio, T. V. O'Brien, William Mehl and 1. C. Coggin, after which the association adjourned. The eccentricities of "Ouida" are attracting the attention of Europe. If "Ouida" were in America she would have fewer capers. Her first sensible move would be to use Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. >~ A SULLIVAN-ALLEY ROW. Conflict Between a Cigar-Maker and Two Laundrymen. There was trouble in Sullivan alley, Chinatown, yesterday afternoon. It occurred In the cigar-store of Low Ban. Two Chinese laundrymen, who visit the Chinese quarter to play lottery and who have a grudge against Low Ban, entered the place and wanted some cigars on credit. Low Ban did not see the point in dealing out goods without ruocev, and objected. Tne two laundrymen then began to turn the place upside down and io impress upon Low Ban that they were "bad" men. Chung Lee, one of the laundrymen, swept rows of boxes containing cigars on to the floor, while Lew Sou, tho other, proceeded to beat Low Ban. The latter showed fight, and there was a general not until Sergeant Gilleu and posse appeared and arrested the whole three. Ban and Sou were charged wiih battery and disturbing the peace and Lee with simply disturbing the nence. The Jury Disagreed. A second charge against Fred Albrecht Jr., son of the well-known half-interest swindler, of selling • liquor without a license at 11 Drumm street, was tried before a jury in Judge Joachimsen's court yesterday afternoon. When the first case was tried (last Tuesday) the jury Drought in a verdict of acquittal. Tcsteiday afternoon the jury Tailed to agree, nine being for acquittal and two for conviction. The further hearing of witnesses in the Mc- K>nna investigation will have to be postponed till this second case is finally disposed of. Perkins and Coombs Speak.

AFTER THE JAPS. Mr. Chung Murphy Has a Scheme. DEADLY POETICAL PARALLEL China to Begin Real War in Three Weeks. INVADERS TRAPPED IN FOO SHAN The Emperor of the Mongols Has Issued Orders for Levying Two Million Troops. Chung Murphy, Chinese fortune-teller and jongleur, has started . out singly and alone to "do" the armies of the Mikado. He asks for no dynamite guns, no prussic acid, no armored cruisers— all he wants is time and a little ice. Up till two months ago Mr. Murphy was not a particularly popular citizen in Chinatown. lie had worn out dozens and dozens of bright led cushions sitting in front of bis little stand at Clay and l)u---pont streets in an attempt to make both ends meet. He exorcised demons and augured good for bedeviled brethren at the modest tariff of 10 cents per — , particularly vicious devils in job lots of a dozen or more at three for a quarter. But he didn't make things go smoothly at that and was often compelled to seek his attic on an empty stomach. It is all changed now and Mr. Chung Murphy is the most popular man in the Mongolian colony, lie has sidetracked bis fortune-telling library and launched out as a jongleur. Every afternoon be holds a levee, and tbe demands on his attention are so great that be labors far into the night. Tbe coin rolls into tbe coffers of Mr. Murphy, however, and the feathers of tne chicken recently consumed can be picked at any time from his clothing. The declaration of war between China and Japan has made all this change in the Chung Murphy Grows Pathetic fortunes of Chung, and he has high hopes, at the conclusion of his labors, that the Emperor will give him the red button at least. Tbe hopes of touching that button will support him in his effort to do the rest. Chung's plan is a simple one, and to the Chinese mind is certain to be effective. He proposes, with the aid of a retentive memory, some poetical license and a diet of roast pig, to sing the Japs off the face of the map. Just two days after the news of the sinking of the Kow Shnng reached here Chung announced his temporary retirement from the fortune-telling business to enter the list of patriots. For the small consideration of 5 cents a head he would sing of the past glories of China, and in the course of time, when he had recited all the glories of all the dynasties he would proceed to jongle the Japs to destruction. So, he began. The first afternoon he had but a few listeners and hastily skipped along in a high key on the fitful wanderings of the ten dynasties that preceded Chow ; of their wanderings in the forests of Shan-se, and of the learned Tsang-Kee, the Chinese Cadmus, who Invented the labels on wash bills from designs on the back of a tortoise shell. Next day there was a somewhat steadier attendance, and Chung Murphy went to bed on a full stomach, with $1 15 in his inside pocket. As the story progressed he slightly touched on the wonderful discovery of fire made by Suy Jin She, which Chen Hung Has Private Advices. alfco included tbe discovery of tbe first Chinese joke. Suy Jin She, so the story goes, was a wooden-headed man, who claimed to be a philosopher. Carrying cut this theory he absolutely refused to work. Now, the wife of Suy was a virago, and one day, becoming incensed at his laziness, she cracked him over his wooden bead with a broomstick. The friction of the woods made fire— which is a fact and a Chinese joke. It made a hit for Chung, and from that day to this the desirable nickel has been dropping into bis pocket in a perfect shower. At any rate be has gone on through the list of Inglorious Kings, touched lightly on the cruelties of the usurper Xee, and the establishment of the dynasty of Shang. The tragedies of tbe revolt of Woo- Wang and the evils that seemed to follow bis successors were recitea sorrowfully. /At present he is reciting the prowess of Che ilwang-to, the first universal Emperor, who during the course of his wars made millions "the guests of heaven." This will take him two mote weeks, aud Chung will then proceed to unfold tue other glories of the other dynasties who have condescended to occupy tbe throne and make Iscended to occupy tbe throne and make history for China for the next 2200 years, which will bring things down to about 1904, when Chung thinks he will have finished, and not a Jap but will have been swept off the face of the earth and sea. There are a few other Chinese who have slightly different ideas from Chung. They admit that, when he has finished, the war will probably be over, but they refuse to promise to give him credit for ending it. Chen Hung, who keeps a grocery at 734 DuDont street, was full of information on the Chiuese war yesterday. He was chewing the sacred rag in Sooy Pong Toy's steam-beer joint in Sullivan alley with a couple of friends, far from the sounding of the dreary monotone of the voice of Chung Murphy, He was perched in the only cushioned chair in the place and was giving his hearers the benefit of his digestion of papers and letters received on the City of Peking Sunday. According to Chung, the backbone of the Japanese army will begin to weaken in about three weeks, when the Chinese commence real war. From advices received he has decided that the Chinese will corner the armies of Japan in the province of Foo Shan, the land of the Tiger Mountain, and that there will not be enough of the army of the Mikado left to make a respectable grease spot. ' The Chinese delay, he explained, was for two reasons— one to enable the levy of troops, the other that winter should be allowed fairly to set in so that the rivers would be frozen and troops could be marched over them by the thousand. Private advices to Chinese commercial houses here, Chen Hung says, show that the Emperor of China is bent on a war of extermination. Two months ago the imperial mandate was sent to twentv-oue of the provinces of the Celestial Empire that 200,000 troops should be raised and equipped in each of them at once. At the same time an imperial ordar was issued that any officer of the army er Government who was guilty of uttering sentiments favorable to a peaceful settlement of the difficulty would be at once beheaded. "Whatt'ell Chinee care for one or two million men," said Chen Hung, gating excited; "she got plenty mere. When the winter comes and the ice she pour men into Foo Shan and crush the Japs." There were grunt' of approval from his Chinese brethren, who. while they failed to understand Chen Ilung's uearlv pure English, could not mistake his action*. There were emphatic stamps on the floor, too, which would lead one to believe that the heathen were trampling figurative Japs under their heels. Chen Hung admitted that the Japs bad taken 2000 prisoners in a battle at Asan, but utterly scouted the story of the slaughter at Ping Yang or the capture of 16,000 prisoners by the Japs at that place. He also denied that there had been more than one really big naval battle and said that occurred on September _'G. After he had stated all this he went on to explain that history proved that Japan could not whip China. This was the fifth time the two countries bad come together, and every time the Japs got the worst of it. The same general conditions prevailed now and be could not, for the life of him, see where the Japs could wis, in the face of the men and money of China. And Chen Bung's opinion seems to be the one generally accepted in Chinatown. The only dissenters are the worshipers at the shrine of Jongleur Chung Murphy, who prefer romance to facts and wish to engulf Japan by way of the deadly poetical parallel as being the surest, if the slowest, method. These are the eaters of hasheesh, the chewers of betel, the smok- Will Trample Japs Under His Feet. ers of opium. There are hundreds and hundreds of them In Chinatown and they are willing to buy roast pig for Mr. Murphy for his vocal epic. Which makes things satisfactory all around and explains the peace that seems to dwell in Dunont street. The manufacturers of Dr. Price's Baking Powder own the largest plant and the best machinery and use the purest materials in mnkiug baking powder. STILL A MYSTERY. The Search for Montague H. (Ira- ham Continues. Tbe search for Montague H. Graham continues with unabated vigor. Yesterday Detectire Seymour went from Oakland to Haywards and made careful Inquiry at the different roadside resorts on the way, but failed to find trace of him. Other places have been searched with a similar result. The detective and Captain Lees are completely a' a loss to find a clew to the cause of Graham's extraordinary conduct, if he is alive. "I don't think he is dead," said Dectective Seymour, 1: st night, "but I am unable to arrive at a solution of tbe mystery of his disappearance. No, I don't tbink be is on a prolonged diunk, from tbe simple tact that when last seen be bad no money in his possession. "We find also that when he left Sims' clear-stand in Alameda with tbe intention of crossing to this city he went in the direction of the broad-gouge depot. From that fact I am inclined to tbink the impression that he bad fallen off the platform of the car on the narrow-gauge route into the mud while tbe train was crossing the pier between the mainland and the mole is erroneous." Seymour will go to San Jose to-day. Infested Plants Destroyed. On the City of Peking, which arrived in port Sunday from Japan was found a number of Japanese plants termed aspldistia which were found infested with scale insects. The scale flourish in oriental countries and are very troublesome. They subsist upon the. leaves of plants. The insect are a species of chionespis. The attention of Alexander Craw, thelState Horticultural quarantine officer, was called to these infected plants and he at once ordered them destroyed. Chinese Women Remanded. Three Chinese were remanded to the steamer City of Peking yesterday by the Federal authorities. One, Wong Yee, a woman about 20 years of age, swore that she was born at 917 Dupont street, in this city, but her evidence was not corroborated. Wong Sum, an alleged sister, and Tong Que were tbe. others, who also claimed to have been born here. . . ENDED HIS LIFE. Suicide of Young Eugene Menesini. HE TRIED TO KILL OTHERS. Narrow Escape of S. Oranucci and L. Harant. A COUSIN BELIEVES HIM INSANE. He Had Been Discharged for Using Vulgar Language before Lady Customers. A young Italian named Eugene Menesiui committed suicide in a sensational manner yesterday morning in the Bay State Market. 1300 Stockton street. Before taking his own life the young man attempted to murder S. Granueci, his employer, and L. Haraut, a man employed in the shop. From the manner in which the suicide acted just before committing the deed it is supposed that he was crazy at tbe lime. It appears that Menesini had been employed in the butcher business for some months, and was noted for his excitable temperament. On Saturday last he bad a quarrel with Harant over some sheep carcases. Haraut angrily accused Meuesiui of being a liar, and In return Menesini roundly abused Harant in language more profane than choice. There were some lady customers in tbe shop at the time and tbey were so shocked at the abusive language that they left the market. Tue row was reported to Mr. Granueci, who at once gave orders that when Menesini appeared for work on Monday morning be was to be told that bis services were no longer required. A brother of Mr. Granueci opened the she yesterday morning and when Menesini appeared he was told that be had been discharged. Menesini became greatly excited and said he would see Granueci about it. At about a quarter past ti o'clock Granueci entered the store, and Menesini at once approached him. He pleaded to be reinstated in his position, and said be had not been wholly to blame. At first Mr. Granueci was inflexible, saying that the young man bad grossly insulted some of the lady customers. Still Menesini pleaded, and even offered to work without salary. Finally Granueci told his discharged employe that he would at least have to suspend him for a few days. He could then come around and something might be done for him. With that assurance Menesini left the shop and presumably went to his room, where be procured tbe pistol with which the shooting was done. Upon bis return to the shop he found that Granueci bad gone to breakfast, so he sat down to wait for him. It was noticed at this time that be was laboring under strong excitement, but he said nothing that would indicate the nursing of any sanguinary Intentions. At 8:15 o'clock Mr. Granueci again appeared, whereupon Menesini spoke to him once more. "Won't you take me back?" he asked of Mr. Granueci. "I will In a few days," responded the butcher, "but not before. You needn't be afraid. I'll put no one in your place." "A few days." muttered Menesini, as if to himself. "That will be too late. I just might as well go now." As be spoke Menesini drew a pistol from his pocket. Quick as was his movement Harant, who was behind the counter, saw it, and knowing that Menesini bad a grudge against him he quickly dropped behind the meat block. Even as he did so Menesini fired a shot in his direction. If he bad been standing be would have been struck, but as it was the bullet was imbedded in the wall. Harant then jumped through a doorway which opened on Broadway and ran down the street to a neighboring saloon. As be went out the door Menesini fired another shot at him. The bullet struck a cleaver and, glancing, went through the fleeing man's apron. Seeing Harant disappear Menesini turned to Granueci and snapped the pistol at him. Luckily it misled fire. Granueci also sought safety in flight. A third shot rang out as he went thiough the door, but the bullet was not aimed at him. Menesini bad turned tbe pistol to his own head and had blown out his brains. When people who had been attracted by tbe noise of the shooting rushed into tbe shop Menesini was lying on the floor dead, with brains and blood oozing from a frightful hole in his head. The Coroner was notified and the bony was removed to the Morgue. Menesini was 19 years of age, and came to this country two years ago from Italy, where he was born. He had been in the employ of his cousin, V. Menesini, for some time and later was employed in a Davis-street shop by E. Menesini, an uncle. After being discharged by him Menesini was hired by Granueci. He had not been on good terms with Harant and attributed his discharge to the latter. His cousin, V. Menesini, stated yesterday that be thoroughly believed Eugene was crazy and that there was no real cause other than this for bis assault on Granueci and Harant.
