ON THE WATER
The Crack Steam Craft Which
Is Being Built for Dr.
SWIFT LITTLE SATELLITE.
The Boat Will Make Eleven
Knots an Hour— The
The steamer Farallon, which arrived a
few days ago from Puget Sound ports,
brought from Seattle the hull and frame of
a launch for Dr. V. P. Buckley, the well
known physician of this city. A few days
ago the little craft was taken to the Union
Qas-engine Company, where an engine is
now being made for her. The Satellite is
the name of the new launch, and before
the season is over it is predicted that she
will have passed everything in the bay.
The vessel itself is a thing of beauty, but it
is her lines which catch the yachtsman's
eye. The graceful sweep of the white
cedar hull, the sharp bow and overhanging
stern give indications of what she can do,
and, if the gas engine meets the require
ments, the Satellite will be the fastest boat
of her class on the bay.
The designer of the novel craft, for she
will be a novelty in these waters, is 11. T.
Engelbrerht, now of Seattle, but formerly
of this city. When only ten years old he
was whittling models "of boats, and, al
though his father's wealth and position
were- such as to give him his choice of
vocation.-;, he wanted nothing better than
a boatshop. He became a crank on the
subject, and has traveled all over the
United States and studied the art of boat
building in the best-known ship and navy
Last year Dr. Buckley owned the
Hirondel. and Attorney George A. Knight
tried in vain to brat him with the Arrow.
The aquatic attorney vowed to build a
launch that would beat everything the
physician could produce, and he has now
a great bay-sweeper in course of construc
tion. Dr. Buckley heard of Engelbrecht,
and decided to try him. He became inter
ested in the boat-builder, and was aston
ished when told what he could do. The
result was that a contract was given for the
Satellite, and L»r. Buckley is more than
pleaded with his bargain.
When completed the launch will be one
of the most thorough little crafts afloat.
She is 35 H feet in length over all, but so
beautifully is she proportioned that she
does not appear to be more than 25
feet. Her extreme beam is 6 feet 8
inches; depth at bow 5:1 feet, at the
stern 6 feet and amidships 4 feet.
She is copper -fastened throughout,
and is the first vessel ever built on the
coast in which plugs have been used in
stead of putty. Her rails and stanchions
are of ash and her deck is seven-eierhths
inch fir, soaked in hot linseed oil. Her in
terior is a gem of art as well as of utility,
and when the furnishings are in place, trie
Satellite will be a creditable little floating
palace. There are three cabins, of which
the bulkheads can be removed at will,

apartment in curly maple and hardwood

incandescent lamps* and the vessel will

with a 44-inch pitch, and the engine will he
12 horsepower with a speed of 11 knots an
hour. The vessel can be steered from the
side by the enpineer, or forward without
him. One of the peculiarities of the en
cine is that one lever starts, stops and
backs the launch. The gearing is to be of
buckskin, so that the craft will run almost
without noise. A small dynamo and stor
age bat tf-rits will rest forward of the en
gine to opt rate the electric lights.
The Satellite will make her trial trip in
about three weeks.
GRANTED FREE LICENSES.
The Prayerg of Several Petitioner*
Heard by the Supervisor)*.
Numerous applicants for free licenses
appeared before the License and Order
Committee of the Board of Supervisors
yesterday and presented their cases.
The California Florists' and Growers*
Association sent a communication re
questing the board to refuse street flower
venders free licenses on the ground that, by
reason of their peculiar way of plying their
calling, they were able to undersell the
regular florists, and damaged those who
had lanre sums invested in the business.
Florence C. Walker, whose card de
scribes her as a "woman editor" of a local
weekly publication, appeared as the repre
sentative of the street venders, and asked
that the petition be passed until the next
meeting of the board. This was granted,
and the communication will come up as a
special order of business on Wednesday
Felix Steen wa» granted a free license

THE TURNER CASES.
He Will Be Tried on Charges o f Grand
I-arceny and Forgery.
J. F. Turner, real estate agent, appeared
in Judge Low's court yesterday afternoon
for his preliminary examination on the
charges preferred against him by J. P.
Frenna, the Polk-street barber. Turner
has been in the City Prison since his
arrest, about three months ago.
Turner was represented by Attorney
George A. .Knight and Frenna by ex-Judge
About 'a week ago Judge Low dismissed
a charge of obtaining money by false pre
tenses in regard to the Fresno property.
There were three other charges against
Turner— one of obtaining money by false
pretenses in connection with the Santa
Cruz property, one of grand larceny and
another of forgery in connection with the
Fresno property. *
The forgery is based upon the certificate
of registration of the deed to Frenna, it
being'alleged that the signature of the Re
corder was forged. It is also alleged that
Turner stole this deed from Frenna, hence
the charge of grand larceny. Frenna says
that although the deed cannot be found,
he lias several witnesses who will swear to
having seen the <vrtiticate of registration.
There was a brief argument between
counsel as to which case should be taken
up tirst, and it was decided to take up the
grand larceny charge. Then by niuttial
consent the charge of obtaining money by
false pretenses on the Santa Cruz property

"I have no recollection of seeing any
such letter as has been mentioned," said
the Mayor yesterday. "It may have been
received and called to my attention, but if
so, I have entirely forgotten it. We re
ceive so many letters from citizens advis
ing this or that course in regard to public
matters or abusing me for my stand on

time to attend to them and I have Mr.

WILLIAMS IS GUARDIAN
He Is Put In Charge of Sirs. Terry's
Thomas H. Williams Jr. has been ap
pointed guardian of the person and estate
of Sarah' Althea Terry by Judge Sander
son, who. in the absence of Judge Slack,
held court in Department 10 of the Supe
rior Court yesterday. H. M. McPike, who
represented" Porter Ashe, the deposed
guardian, was on hand with an objection.
He did not Bee how Williams could be ap
pointed until Mr. Ashe had been regularly
removed, a proceeding, he contended,
which had never taken place. The court
held, however, that there was vacancy
enough to warrant the appointment, and
he made the necessary order.
Williams was called to the stand during
the hearing and testified that the estate is
worth about $4<XK).

Mighellj her owner, "but she is sharp on
the quarterdeck and the seaweed never
grows under her forefoot."
In this nautical adaptation of the old
saying about "grass" growing under some
body's "feet" Captain Slater, her command
er, receives a merited compliment, for the
bark under his seamanship fractures her
own record every voyage. The last round
trip between this port and Nanaimo occu
pied the sturdy vessel twenty-two tlays,
with the mainsail and royals closely folded
along the yards. The trip before was made
in twenty-four days. The custom among
the Pacific ship-owners of giving the offi
cers of record-breakers silk hats, suits of
clothes, watches, etc., keeps Captain John
Slater in a new suit of rigging and the
envy of every steamer skipper on the coast.
The Wilna was built at Freeport, Me.,
in 1830 by Brigg & Gushing and was the
last wooden vessel that ever dipped into
the sea from that noted ship-building place.
She is 200:4 feet long, 42:1 feet in width and
24 feet deep and registers 140 ft tons net.
Her cost was $105,000, and she has been an
inexhaustible mine to her owners.
With beam a little less than one-fourth
her length she was not built for speed, but
she fooled Vm, and on her maiden voyage,
young and inexperienced in the variable
moods of the sea, she walked into Shanghai

Japan, and Cape Flattery she used only
She has a remarkably clean run to her
hull, and the peculiar lines of her bottom
are such that she leaves the water smooth.
In the free and easy vernacular of her call
ing she "doesn't drag her wake." Captain
Slater has made a slight change in two of
the sails— in splitting the spanker, making
it easier to handle, and increasing the size
of the flying jib.
BEAR'S NEST MINE.
The Defendant* Invoke the Statute of
The suit of A. S. Renshaw against James
and John Treadwell, James Carroll. M. W.
Marry and N. A. Fuller, now pending in
the United States Circuit Court, has taken
a new turn. For over a year the trial has
been delayed by means of demurrers that
were overruled and motions to dismiss
that were denied. While this was going
on the defendants were not required to an
swer. When all the legal means for caus
ing delay were exhausted they, one and
all, came into court yesterday and pleaded
the statute of limitation.
Several years ago the defendants owned
the Bear's Nest mine on Douglas Island,
Alaska. , They sold it to A. S. Renshaw, an
English capitalist, and when he came to
work it there were no returns. According
to his complaint, he then made an exam
ination and discovered that the mine had
been salted. Ore from the Treadwell mine
had been carted to the Bear's Nest, and it
; was from it the sample tests were taken.
i Borings were also made, but Renshaw as

LOUIS STRASSMAN SENTENCED.
Condemned to Seven Years' Imprison
ment for Perjury.
Judge Belcher denied a motion for a new
trial made by counsel for Louis Strassman
yesterday morning, and then proceeded to
sentence the prisoner to seven years' im
prisonment in San Quentin for the crime
of perjury, of which he stood convicted.
Strassman was a straw bondsman. He
I was defended by Carroll Cook, who, when
I the prosecution had finished its case,
\ moved that the court instruct the jury to
i acquit. The motion was denied, the court
• giving reasons for the denial, and Cook took
exception to the remarks of the Judge in
i the presence of the jury, and in a great
\ measure based his motion for a new trial
upon the substance of that exception. In
his opinion Judge Belcher claims it to be
! the inherent right of the court to pass
upon matters of law submitted for judg
ment, and this right necessarily includes
i the power of giving reasons for the court's
action. He scored Cook for the nature of
his motion and denied it.
Mr. Cook, after sentence had been passed,
asked for a stay of execution and a writ of
probable cause. Both were denied, but
upon an appeal to the Supreme Court they
were granted by Chief Justice Beatty.
THE QUARANTINE OFFICER.
To Be Appointed by the State
or by the Federal
Two Bills on the Subject Are
Now Before the Leg-
The appointment of a quarantine officer
is causing considerable comment owing to
the fight that is being made over the matter.
Two bills are before the Legislature— one
providing that the office shall be trans
ferred to the United States authorities and
the other that the appointing power shall
be vested in the Board of Supervisors.
The Governor is in favor of the former
The bill abolishing the office of State
Quarantine Officer was introduced by Timo
thy Guy Phelps, ex-Collector of the Port.
It re-enacted the old law relating to the
Board of Health, but under the head of
"retrenchment and public expenditure"
the Quarantine Officer and his assistants
were left out in the cold. Section 4of the
bill provides that:
The State Board of Examiners are hereby
authorized and required to sell at public auc
tion or at private sale, as they may deem best,
the boarding steamer "Governor Perkins," un
less in theii opinion it can be properly put to
some other scrvirv of the State, and to' sell all
other property of whatever kind belonging to
the Slate, and heretofore used by the Quaran
tine Oflicer and not needed by the State, and
cover the money received therefrom into the
This bill passed the Assembly and has
gone to the Senate.
Later on Phelps introduced a joint reso
lution, which was passed, requesting the
Federal Government to assume control of
maritime quarantine matters at the port of
San Francisco. In accordance with this
Governor Budd hits telegraphed to the Sec
retary of the Treasury requesting the Na
tional Government to assume control.
At Angel Island the United States has
established a thoroughly equipped quaran
tine station. A steamer with all the neces
sary apparatus for fumigating infected ves
sels was built and after a few months of
service was laid up on account of there
being no funds wherewith to pay the nec
The State also supports a quarantine
service which costs about $8000 a year.
William M. Lawler. M.D., is the head of
the office and the Governor Perkins is the
steamer employed by him in boarding for
eign ships and American vessels coming
from foreign waters. His appointment
lies with the Board of Health and the lat
ter is appointed by the Governor. Conse
quently when a bill was introduced in the
Assembly, seeking to take the appointing
power out of the hands of the board of
Health and vest it in the Board of Super
visors, fhere was considerable trouble.
The latter body is strongly Republican,
and naturally it would appoint a Republi
can quarantine officer. The whole matter
therefore stands thus: If the United States
will take control of quarantine matters in
San Francisco the State will retire and thus
save $8000 a year. If Uncle Sam will not
do anything in the premises then the State
will have to carry on the service itself,
either as an adjunct to the Board of Health
or the Board of Supervisors.

THE QUEER THINGS
IN THE FAIR WILL
A Provision in Its Body Heads
Off a Possible Cod
BIG MONEY FOR TRUSTEES.
Counsel for Charles L. Fair Say
the Children Could Be
"Playing for time? Now. don't go away
with the notion that we are. not thoroughly
in earnest," said George A. Knight, Speak
ing about the Fair will case yesterday
afternoon. "We are ready to file our con-
test just the minute the other side lets us
know what we have to contest. Let them
put in their document— a produced will or
a lost will — and we file our contest at once.
And when we do so, I may just as well say
here, every man, woman and child in San
Francisco not prejudiced will admit our
cause to be just. The provisions of this
will are so monstrous when analyzed — that
is to say when understood for what they
are— that the will cannot stand. Reduced
to its single principle this vast estate is
handed over to the executors to do with as
they wish. They may deny the nominal
heirs everything, may turn them into the
street. The will is so constructed as to
invite the withholding of its benefits from
the heirs. If the executors are honest men
and do all that the heirs could expect
in their behalf, still the will provides them"
an ample fortune."
"Then you don't agree with Mr. McEn
erney that the undue influence that only
provides $10,000 as a bequest for itself where
the possibilities run into millions would
make but a poor witness in court?"
"I wouldn't think of disagreeing with
Mr. McEnerney on such a matter if that
were true, but the $10,000 is a mere drop in
the bucket, and was put in there more for
the appearance of the thing than the $10.
--000. The fact is the will provides $50,000
to each of the executors the first year, ex
clusive of bequests."
"Let me show you," said Mr. Heggerty,
taking up the story. "The code fixes as
compensation for executors in the dis
tribution of estates, 7 per cent for the first
$1000, that is $70; 5 per cent for the next
$9000. which is $450: 4 per cent for the next
$10,000, which is $400; 3 per cent for the
next $30,000, which is $900 ; 2 per cent for
the next $50,000. which is $1000, and 1 per
cent ror all above that. Now, for the sake
of the estimate and to be certain to be
within bounds, say the estate is worth
$20,000,000. We have counted the fees on
$100,000, which amount to $2820. The 1
per cent on the $19,900,000 remaining
amounts to $ 19ft, (100, and foots up $201,820,
to be divided between the executors the
"For the law provides that an estate may
be distributed within a year. In this in
stance the executors will distribute to
themselves as trustees and will continue in
that relation to the estate through the lives
of the principal heirs. They will expect
the court to name the same compensation
for subsequent service as trustee as was
nominated in the will, and the court would
no doubt grant it, especially if the estate,
having been estimated at $20,000,000 thoy
report upon it as $25,000,000. And don't
you see how it is to their interest to esti
mate it as high as may be, getting the 1
per cent upon it, as they would? And
don't you see how that very principle
would cause them to go slow in making
over any part of it to the children? Every
dollar they give up reduces their dwu
percentages. Nice arrangement, isn't it,
for the children of a multimillionaire to
be wholly dependent upon the good offices
of their father's clerks?"
"I have said that when we file our con
test stating our grounds the public will
open its eyes," said Mr. Knight. "We
have no concealments to make or myste
ries to create and might carry our case on
our sleeve. We will leave the other side
to do the mysterious.
"Now, suppose that accidents or epidem
ics should carry off the heirs. In five years
winding up the business of these trustees
in that time they would have rounded
up a neat fortune of $252,295 each in these
fees alone, exclusive of the commissions
and other revenues which the will puts in
"Now, how like James G. Fair it was—
all these liberal provisions for his former
clerks? Anybody who knew him knew
that he considered himself as doing excel
lently well when he paid once for any
thing, but here he reiterates his desires
and binds himself to pay these men, Angus
and Bresse. first, their $10,000 bequest;
next, the salary which they had received
from him in his lifetime is to continue
without regard to the other income, and in
addition to these the will especially pro
vides for commissions on all contracts to
be let. etc.
"Now, suppose that the trustees, exer
cising the power which they undoubtedly"
have under this will, feel called upon tb
develop and improve the estate, and so un
dertake to add seven stories to the Lick
House, continue the work at North Beach
and otherwise spend the entire income.
While they are doing so the heirs are to be
satisfied with explanations, while the trus
tees reap handsome commissions and main
tain their big percentages.
"In our contest we will call attention to
the peculiar construction of this document
in some other respects than have been in
dicated. For instance, Angus and Bresse
are given $10,000, 'provided tney are in the
employ of the testator at the time of his
death. But in making them executors
and trustees no such limitations are made.
In other words, if they should be dis
charged and sent to prison for embezzle
ment in the meantime it would cut them
out of the $10,000. but they would still be
the executors. Now, do you suppose Wil
liam M. Pierson drew a will like that, ex
cept at the direct order of somebody ? That
provision alone indicates to me that Pier
son never sat down with Fair as his ad
visor in this matter. He simply changed
into his own handwriting something that
was sent to him for that purpose.
"Mr. Goodfellow was Fair's personal
attorney and confidential man. Why did
he not draw the will? It would not' have
looked right. Mr. Goodfellow know that
(this will would be closely inspected, and
all these questions raised/and he must be
in a. position to say 'I never saw the will;
I did not draw it?"'
"Did Fair himself write it? Is it likely?
I can imagine his dictating to his secretary
what he wanted incorporated in the will at
different times and having it sent to Pier
son, perhaps, to have it put in legal shape.
And this could be done again and again,
could it not? separate clauses being sent to
Pierson until we have thos<- seven separate
half sheets of legal cap, fourteen pages so
oddly worded, calling for a signature at
the foot of each of thirteen pages, but hav
ing a signature at only one, the last of
these thirteen and all of the lirst eleven
pages, which were unsigned, handing over
the estate to the trustees.
"If Pierson had had a consultation with
Fair, don't you suppose lie would have
asked 'Do you wish to have these men
serve as trustees even though they have
left your service before death and you have
cut them out of the $10,000 legacy?' If
you were building a will and were de
termined to have it just right, wouldn't
yon expect your attorney to call your at
tention to such a lapse as that ? No, Pier
son never consulted with Fair directly; he
did as he was directed and he did not get
his words from Fair personally.
"But the most significant thing in the
whole document is the provision in the
body of it that no codicil should change
any of the stipulations as to the trust.
Mow the idea of Jim Fair, if he was in his
right and hard-headed mind, as they say
he was, cutting himself off from the possi
bility of changing the provisions of his last
will, isn't it Levond reason and very sig
