Tuesday night1 by the friends of a
man they had murdered. Ono of the
prisoners is said to have placed tlio

the crime and exonerated his brother ,
while the other showed fight. They
\\cro quickly overpowered , knocked
down und mnltieated in n horrible
manner , ono being killed while in the
jail , and both declared dead before
the court yard was reached. What
followed was horrible. The crazy ,
yelling mob dragged their victims
along "tho road 'about half n mile ,
when the bodies were pulled up over
the aign at a railroad crossing. After
h.inging a while they were lowered
and dragged h short distance to tlio
house of prostitution where the orig

SANTA ROSA , September 22. The
whin-making season inSonomn county
luvs fairly not in , nud at the wineries
there nro daily rocoix'od wngonlonds of
tlio product of the vineyards. The
crapes most abundant BO far nro the
Sinfamlcl variety , from which the
principal red winoof California is pro
duced. Tt is u smaller grape ( him
most of the European vnriutioB , mid in
not so well adapted for t-.iblti use ,
bnl in the moreguiict.ally prolitatilu
purpose of wine-making it is perhapa
the boat yob produced in the Htutc.
This season's growth is prolific , al
though hnrdly up to the uncommon
yield of last year , Imtthu diliorenco in
( quantity is fully made up in the matter -
tor of excellence of quality , and inoro
than compeiiBntod for in the advanced
price , grapes now readily Helling at
from $2 to $5 per ton above the rate
then paid. The total product of So
noma will not exceed that of 1880 ,
nor will the wino yield hardly equal
tint of laafc year , altogether there is
now a larger aggregate acreage than
ever before , lint u considerable , pro
portion of this increase is in now vine-
vards , which is not expected to yield
until next year or the year following ,
when the aggregate will bo much in
excess of any so far given from this
branch of lucrative tillage. The
added acreage of tho. present year
in vines in Sonoma cannot yet
bo oven approximately stated , not
withstanding the active ellbrts of Mr.
De Turk , the member of the atato
viticultur.il board for this district , for
the reason tliat his inquiries , in pre
pared circular letter 'form , have not
received that prompt attention ho had
a right to expect , and because so many
adopt the unwise policy of withhold
ing , rather , than of supplying , the in
formation Bonu'ht , through mistaken
ideas of its elfcct upon themselves ,
and form a very erroneous opinion of
the intention and utility of the viti-
A I'KOFITABLB SEASON.
In the old Sonoma district , com
monly known as Sonoma valley , the
product of this year will be very sat
isfactory , otid the largo vineyards of
such extensive grower. ! as Hill and
Drassell and ethdrs ill yield vintages
of superior worth. The ravages of
the phylloxera in that district , have
been inat'erially'ovorcomo during the
season , and noxtyxlc the vines will
live insects. 'In
labors and usefulness of
tural commission have been of great
appreciable value , inasmuch ns the
otloct has been not only to instruct
vineyardisln in the means to eradicate
the pest , and thus restore their vines
to fruitful viijor , but also to relieve
their lands of the blight and curse and
restore them again to good market
able values wherein sales are contem
plated. It has , besides , stimulated
vineyards to greater .exertions and
more eflicacious expedients in the way
of overcoming the evil , which , if al
lowed to run neglected , spreads with
the most damaging tapidity , and ,
while it impairs or destroys the prod
uct of the vine , at the same time af
fects the price of land throughout the
HIGH DISTRICTS FOIl VJNF.YAHDH.
In this more northern portion of
the county the phylloxera is rarely
encountered , and the vineyards have
enjoyed exemption from its destruct-
ivenoes. Hence it has become the fa
vorite district of grape planting , and
during the year hundreds of acres
have bi'on freshly put in vines , which
will come into market in a year or
two. The typographical advantages
of thit region unite with thp superior
adaptability of the boil and the favor
able climate in attracting owners to
the culture of the grape. From the
early vine-grower of ancient Rome ,
who brought wine-making to the per
fection which extorted Irom Horace
the lavish praises of his classic verse
and the encomiums of the choice Fa-
lornium and Muesicum with which ha
was wont to regale his honored friends
and guests , the world long ago learned
that hilly locations are the best foi
the purpose , and in this prime essen
tial the country which extends from
below Santa Rosa to above Oloyordalo
ib peculiarly favored , as it is likewise
in the nature of the soil itself. And
these favorable lands are now becom
ing moro and inoro utilized every
year. To meet and promote this ad
ditional grape cultivation the moans
to supply a ready market and. to afford
larger wine-making facilities keep
npaco. Sonoma valley still , however.
maintains the load , and it will
for years to come , very likely , yet _ the
product will much increase in the
northern district , in Bonnet valley ,
Santa Rosa , Windsor , Knight valley ,
liealdsburg , Alexander valley , Gey-
sorville , Olovordalo , Sobastapol , and
also about Potaluma , Pago's and
Dean's ' grove.
TUB VIKTAOIJ FOU TWO YBA1IH.
Last year of a total vintage of the
whole county of 2,180,000 gallons of
wine , the proportion of Sonoma val
ley was 1,400,000. Santa Rosa came
next , with a product of 200,000 , and
Healdsburg equalled Guillacas , with
its 150,000 gallons. This year the ap
parent product of Santa Rosa will ho
less , but the actual vintace will bo
nearly as much , inasmuch as thu full
ing off in figures will bo fully made
up if not exceeded by the product ac
credited to Olovordalo and Qoyaor-
villo. The Santa Jinan winery of Mr.
Do Turk has heretofore been thu mar
ket for the grape crop of this northern
district from J'otulu-
ern , extending -
ma to beyond Clovordato , at the head
of the valley , At this winery and the
other winery at his own vineyard ,
six miles from town , near
Dennett Valley , Mr. Do Turk
has made all the wine from the vineyards -
yards in this whole region. Hut this
year , to accommodate the vinoyardists
in the upper portion of the valley , ho
boa in connection with a resident of
Cloverdalo , put up a winery in that
town , and to this will bo taken the
crop of the surrounding country. The
Simla Rosa winery of Mr. Do Turk
and tho'smnllor similar establishment
on his farm will work upon the crop
of this broad section , and thu now
winery at Clovorduln will accommodate
the growers in the upper valley. The
aggregate may nut much exceed the
total of last year for this portion of
the district , but the wino will bo of
good and tine qualities and the money
value probably larger than that of last
TIII : ni.it I'AVoutTU MISSION mures.
The late favorable weather has ma
terially bonelittod the entire harvest
in grapes , but in no variety moro than
the old Mission , which is now mainly
used for brandy and heavy wines.
It continues the favoiito table grape ,
but as there are other varieties which
ii adapted almost exclusively for
table use the Flame Tokay , for in-
Htanco while it is better utilized in
thu wineries , the bulk of
the crop will bo put into
brandy. The Wells brothers main-
thin the leading place among
vinoyardistn in this portion of
Sonoma county , and their extensive -
tensive farm in Rincon valley is one
of the finest in the state. The Harris
vineyard and that of Mr. Qvvin , a re
tired mining stock operator in Alex

The fact that the farmers of Sonoma

vinced that their lands are better
adapted to grapes and orchard * than
for wheat and other cereals , and this
is the c.isu especially in the hilly dis-
tiicts and rolling-land region , and it is
appaient , too , that the soil has been
moro or lees we.ikunod in the produc
tion of these exhausting crop.i , as the
diminution of the gluten in the flour

cluded to go on with business as well
as the wet night without and dry ono

at the suggestion of Secretary , Tohon.
Some of the members thought this un

A member explained that it was the
custom in the Sandwich Islands to
muno thu children after the mother ,
and then he added that this might be
a good iilou , in certain instances , in
thin country , to insure accuracy. For
this plain breach of deconim the mem

The vice president acknowledged
the explanation and said that this

removed one of his objections against

ho , "there is another objection , and
that ia the cflcot- upon many of the

money was given to thu waiters and
thu waiters got drunk oil' it , got in

board for live days. Such things are
demoralizing , very bad and I don't
believe in it. "
AB the vice-president concluded his
remarks n newly elected member
one of the nrominent business men of
the city , who moves with his family
in the best circles , jumped to his
foot and demanded an explanation
from the olliciul who had just spoken
an to thu meaning of his words. Did

"Hold on ! " shouted the president ,
partially rising , "tho word you are

At this moment the reporter rushed
out of doors'to find an cflicor to pre

closed oii him with a bang. Some
body yelled "Want thpso proofs ! "
and the tired faber-pushor awoke to
find that the table was n hard place
to lay his head , and to rolled which
of. the things he had dreamed wore
true nnd which Toro not.
Wo clip the following particulars of
the late Indian , massacre from the
Globe Silver -Bolt of a late date :
"Cherry Creek is situated about forty-
five miles from Globe , and a little east
o north. Middleman's wore the only
people living on it , and their nearest
neighbors wore Messrs. Towksbury ,
Church and'Rose , who lived in Pleas
ant Valley , eight miles distant. At 2
p in. on the 2d instant , seven Indians ,
all armed , came up to the house and
commenced to talk in their Usual
friendly manner. George Turner , Jr ,
had just arrived n short time before ,
witb Henry Moody , who lived about
twenty miles distant , bringing the news
of tlio Apaelio outbreak , nnd the re
port then in circulation of the massa
cre of Oarr and hist command. The
Indians were asked if it was true , but
contradicted it. The Indians had re
ceived some" food from Mrs. Middle-
ton , and the family , consisting of the
father and mother , a grown son and
daughter , four little children , and'
Turner nnd Moody wore standing
within a few feet of them , Presently
ono of the Indians said "now , " and
the shooting commenced. All of the
Indiana had carbine needle guns , Huch
as the cavalry UHO , except ono , who
had only a pistol. At the first fire
Moody nnd Turner fell dead. Henry

shoulder wljilo making u splendid and
daring fight against Iho red devils.
They then barricaded the house. The
Indians kept up their firing , from
cover , for about three hours , and then
left. At midnight the family started
for Pleasant Valley , and after travel
ing some distance stopped , while thu
older Middloton wont on to notify
the men there , Ho found them , and
on their \vny back they were jumped
by the Indiunri , and did not reach the

The selection of delegates to the re

now absorbing the attention of the

very pretty contest being waged be

representing the Colliding and the
anti-Conkling dements , which latter
was known under the ( iiuliehl roijiiiio

as seine papers hero attempt to insist
that Mr. Colliding asks no olllco of

There were ton mon of those con
ventions hold to-day in all parts of the
interior of the state , ranging from
Fulton to Hamilton counties in the
center to Ontario in the northwest. In.
no instance in these ton districts was.
there a 'Conkling delegation elected.
In the second district of Oncida coun
ty a contesting delegation was elected ,
and also in tlio first Oswogo. Tuna
far in thu contest it is shown that in
all the counties of the state where the
republican majorities ore the largest
the delegations are strongly anti-
Conkling. When the man on come
down to Now York on Octob-ir Oth to
lay out the plans for the coming.cam-
paign it will unquestionably bo a dif- "
licult matter for the former imperious -
dictator of Now York politics to im
press his seal upon the actions of tlio.

pointed by the governor of the state
of Now York to receive the French
