NOTHING BUT FAVORITES.
Six Well-Backed First Choices
Landed the Coin
FLASHLIGHT WON GALLOPING.
William Pinkerton Showed Himself
to Be a Very Fair
Picking winners at the track yesterday
required neither adroitness nor brains. All
that was necessary to win was to put your
money down on the favorite and get into
line. Six straight favorites won, and easy
at that, all of them passing the winning
post with something: to spare.
Tod Sloan and Bob Isom carried off the
riding honors, each riding two winners.
Bookmaker George Rose's horses seem to
be in pretty good shape just at present, for
his colors flashed by the stand in front on
two occasions yesterday.
The mile handicap was the feature on the
day's card. As a handicap, however, it
proved a dismal failure, the two light
weights running over the top of their iield.
Flashlight, the Derby candidate, with
eighty-four pounds up, was a heavily
played 8 to 5 favorite, with B. Isom up.
Whitestone was a consistent second choice,
going to the post 13 to 5. The majority of
i the other starters, with the exception of
' Nebuchadnezzar and Midas, looked high
and "beefy" and their price in the ring in
dicated that their stable connections were
not enthusiastic over their chances.
The r*ce demonstrated that when good
and fit Flashlight is a rat uer speedy piece
of horseflesh, for he jumped out in front
and galloped. all. the way and won pulling
up by four lengths in 1:41. Whitestone,
second into the stretch, was beaten out for
the plaice semewnat handily by Nebuchad-
The bookmakers scented trouble from
♦far in the first race, when the Ledette
filly, a two-year old and a 7 to 10 favorite,
scampered off. in front and won easily by
two lengths from the Eva S II gelding.
J O C was a fair third.
With too much money the talentswooped
into tne T ring humming "Do, Do, My Mul
berry," and proceeded to pounce on George
Rose's horse Mulberry, the 1 to 2 favorite
for- the second event on the card, a mile
' celling affair. A few of the more brilliant
minds played Mat Storn's Del Norte for
the place," getting 10 to 1 against their
money. Gay prices against the others had
but little charms.
Probably the bookmakers did not enjoy
seeing Mulberry canter in front all the
way and win "easily by two lengths, but
there was no recourse. Blizzard made
a bid for the money to the head of the
stretch, when he began tirine and was
beaten out for the place by Del Norte.
The hard Napoleonic frown on Phil
Howell's face became even more severe as
he chalked up the price against William
Pinkerton in the colt race, and the look on
Nick Hall's, face indicated that he was
beginning to think that perhaps there
■ were harder games than the "jumpers."
for it looked like another "pipe" for the
brother to Rico. And he won just as easily
as the preceding winners, after getting no
too much the best of a rather straggling
start. Te-nne<see Maid, the one picked to
run second; landed there, and it was noth
ing- but hard: luck for the bookies. Had
there been show odds it would have been
still harder oil them, tor the third choice,
Ouida fi.liy, finished third.
•After this race Johnny Coleman of the
, Stuyvesant Club looked warm, and when
*•< *ne bettor remarked that one of the dol
-1 lars Johnny handed him back in change
was a ''phony " he offered to bet him a
100 to 1 it was not. 1 suppose he thought
■he might just as well lose it that way as to
be pedaling it out the rear end of the box.
The fifth race, a five-furlong spin, was
iu.-t what the Empress of Norfolk had
been looking for. Starting a6to 5 chance,
she won under restraint by three lengths
from North, who came like a shot the last
forty yards and beat Ricardo for the sec
Before marking up the odds on the last
race, Johnny Humphreys looked as though
if he had an armchair handy he would sit
down and think. Think of the days when
he and Charley Kingsley and Phil Archi-
I bald used to book, how favorites were
I beaten — and now how different. It was
• rough, but hp chalked 6to 5 against Real
| ization, for Johnny likes to lay against
"favorites. Frank Van Ness and his friends
backed Gold Bug down a couple of points,
but he was never in it. Brodhead and
Captain Coster led into the stretch, when
the favorite moved for the lead, and a s;.x
teenth from home went to the front and
won easily by a length from Quarterstaff,
who made" a fine run, starting with 30 to 1
against him. Captain Coster ended in
Lightning seldom strikes twice in the
game place, and it would not be surprising
to see the favorites bowled over to-day.

McGaughey, Wilson and
Significant Reasons Given by Me-
Caughey for Carrying a .
C. C. Wilson, who was arrested along with
J. D. L. McGaughey last week on the charge
of attempting, by verbal threats, to extort
money on the complaint of Dr. J. .E.
Plouf, made a statement under oath in
Judge Campbell's court yesterday, with
the view of. having leniency extended to
him and possibly being relieved of the
charge. " ' ■
In effect, he said McGaughey and C. S.
Johnson induced him to take about a
dozen letters, which were in pieces, to a
Mr. Curtis, of Woodland, with the object
of identifying them primarily and inci
dentally to get $200. or $300 from Mrs. Cur
tis for the letters. The letters had been
taken out of Dr. Plouf's wastebasket
by McGaughey while he was in Plouf's
service, in August of last year. It was
also thought that the letters might be of
service to Johnson in his suit against
Plouf for the recovery of money he had
put in Plouf's business. Another point
was that Curtis might become enraged and
either kill, or drive Plouf out of the city.
The Judge continued the case till May 2.
McGaus?bey gives a most, emphatic de
nial to Wilson's statement. He says that
Wilson has been in the pay of Dr. Plouf
since he came here and the statement is
part of the plan to persecute him and drive
him out of the. city.
On November 21 last McGaughey applied
to the Police Commissioners for "a permit

A Literary Critic Adrift.
The Report does Thomas Gregory, one of the
Call's reportorial staff, an honor when it
editorially alludes to him as a Clarke Russell,
and the" compliment is appreciated; but the
Report goes adrift as a literary critic when it
quofes as being a plagiarism from Russell's
works the following sentence, which appeared
in Mr. Gregory's description of the Glory of the
Sea's in these columns recently:
. Slie is a typical American merchantman, from
her deep keel to the tip of her towering- royal mast,
from" her long mainyard to the little spar where
.the syksail catches the clouds in its white folds.
Will the book-reviewer of the Report kindly
state in :which one of Mr. Russell's, works the
above sentence may be found? As a matter of
fact the accusation is incorrect, and the even
ing paper grows humorous over a fancied re
semblance between the writings of the marine
■ novelist and the nautical news items of the
'Call's water-front reporter.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1895.
SHOOTING LIVE PIGEONS.
Willard Park, N. J., the Scene
of the Third Annual
WORKED AGAINST THE WIND.
Some Very Good Records Made by
the Marksmen Who En
. tered the Contest.
PATERSON, N. J., April 3.— The third
annual tournament of the live-pigeon
shooting under the auspices of the Inter
state Manufacturers' and Dealers' Associa
tion, was begun at Willard Park to-day.
There was a light wind blowing when the
sport began, but it increased considerably
in the afternoon and made things rather
uncomfortable for the marksmen. The
Willard Park introductory secured twenty
two entries. This event was at 7 birds, $7
entrance, class shooting, 28 yards rise,
three moneys, 50, 30 and 20 per cent, price
of birdsdeducted from entrance.
Elliott, Clark, Class, Van Dyke, Mayhew,
Captain Money and Leroy divided first
money, each of them having killed seven
straight. Fulford, Arnold, Green, Hoff
man, White, Pfister. Morfrey, A. S. White,
Glover and Henry divided second money.
The Passaic Falls sweepstakes at 7
birds were shot off at the same traps. The
conditions were: $5 entrance, the birds ex
tra, not class shooting, 28 yards rise, three
moneys, 60, 30 and 20 per cent. Forty
three men entered for this event, and thir
teen of them killed seven straight.
They shot off "misses out," and after the
fourth round, when four men had dropped
out, the remaining nine agreed to divide
the money, which amounted to $215. The
winners were Messrs. Moore, Post, Swee
ney, Yon Longerk, Brewer, Money, Van
Dyke, Dickey and Leroy.
The principal shoot of the day was the
Nitro-Powder handicap at fifteen birds, $15
entrance, class shooting, four moneys, 40,
30, 20 and 10 per cent, price of birds to be
deducted from the purse. There were
thirty-six entries for this event and it
was brought off at the Main, at which the
big handicap will be shot to-morrow.
This resulted in a tie between Ed D. Ful
ford and F. S. Van Dyke, both of whom
made clean scores, and the money was di
vided. . Thirty-six men contested and the
shooting was pood throughout. The best
scores were: E. D. Fulford (32), 15; F. 8.
Van Dyke (30), 15; J. A. R. Elliott (33), 14;
R. O. Heikes (31), 14; F. Class (32), 14; D.

The Seaside Athletic Club's Boxing
Match Entails Interference.
NEW YORKi N. V., April 3.— There
was a fairly big crowd at the boxing
bouts at the Seaside Athletic Club to-night.
The opening bout between Mike Leonard
and Eddie Pierce, both of New York, was
decided in favor of Pierce.
The next bout was between Jimmy
Handler of Newark, N. J., and Al O'Brien
of Philadelphia, ten rounds at 133 pounds.
Both men were very clever. In the fourth
round O'Brien got a punch in the stomach
that floored him, and in the sixth came
very nearly going out with a right-hand
punch on the jaw and a fearful left-hand
jab on the stomach. He fell to the floor
a. d was almost counted out before he re
gained his feet. O'Brien was at the mercy
of Handler in the seventh, and fell to the
floor-again in an attempt to evade a body
In the ninth Handler banged away for
the face, landing nearly every time he led.
Mike Dunn of Australia, and Joe Wal
cott of Boston, were then announced for
the big event of twenty -five rounds at 150
Walcott was seconded by Tom O'Rourke,
Joe Huttler and Ted Murtha of New York.
Dunn was seconded by "Young Griffo,"
Tom Denny, Paddy Gorman and Benny
The first round was tame. In the sec
ond Walcott planted a very hard right
hand jab under Dunn's heart and Dunn
got in a right-hand smash on Walcott's
mouth, securing first blood.
In the third Walcott rushed Dunn to the
ropes, but Dunn planted his left again on
the mouth. In the next Walcott's left
landed on Dunn'B throat, and in a rapid
exchange his right got to Dunn's stomach.
Walcott landed on the chest with his right
and led again arid doubled Dunn up with a
blow on the stomach.
In the fifth round Dunn jabbed Walcott
five times on the nose with his left and
Walcott retaliated with his right on the
jaw. Walcott got in a right-hand swing
on the head. Dunn uppercut Walcott on
the nose, but the Boston man got square
with two jabs on the face and body.
In the sixth Walcott rushed, but Dunn
stopped him and upoercut him twice and
landed with his left three times in the
In the eighth Walcott landed-on the ribs
and then put his right on the jaw. Dunn
went to his knees. Walcott hit Dunn
when and where he wished after this and
after putting in a heavy left on Dunn's

BASEBALL AND ATHLETICS.
First Intercollegiate Game of
the Season at Berke
What William Kennedy of the
Olympic Thinks of Eastern
Amateur baseball is very popular this
season, and considerable interest in the
series of games that have been arranged
by the clubs has been manifested by the
lovers of the national game. The Stan
ford and Berkeley university nines will
meet on Saturday at Berkeley, and a sharp
contest is looked for, as both clubs have
practiced faithfully for the game. The fol
lowing correspondence from Stanford con
cerning baseball and athletics will interest
patrons of the sport:
Captain Dyer of the Stanford baseball team
gives the following as the line-up for the next
game, which takes place at 2 p. >i. Saturday on
the Berkeley diamond and which is the first
intercollegiate match of the season: Pitcher,
McLaine; catcher, Russell: first base, Young:
second base, Dyer; shortstop, White; third
oase, Lewis; right field, Calhoun; center field,
Sheehan; left field, Harrelson; substitutes—
Thompeon, Jeff, Pincus.
The general opinion is that Stanford will add
another victory to her unbroken list of base
ball victories over Berkeley. The changes made
in the Stanford team undoubtedly strengthen
it and it is practically the final ' Varsity nine as
now made up. The time of the gamehas been
set at an early hour in order that Stanford stu
dents who attend may have time enough to
get back to witness the first presentation of
the operetta "Pinafore," by Stanford students.
••Pinafore" will be given both Friday and Sat
Another trial field day takes place to-day
on the .Stanford field and good records are
looked for, as this virtually decides on Stan
ford's representatives. Brown is disappointed
that so few men have trained regularly. Prob
ably fifteen men will cover all that Stanford
can send out.
The Pennsylvania method of selecting track
men has been adopted here, though the limits
are lower than set by the University of Penn
sylvania in order that more may be disposed to
try for the places. The following is the stand
ard: One hnndred-yard dash, 11 sec; 220
--yard dash, 24J^ see.; 4-40-yard run, 56 sec;

In regard to the proposition made by the
Olympic Club to the New York Athletic
Club for a meeting of the boxers of the
two clubs in New York, Herman Oelrichs,
who is the moving athletic spirit of the
Olympic Club, received a letter from New
York a few days ago, the contents of which
he has not yet made public to the super- |
intendent of the Olympic. The latter,
however, is of the opinion that the news
received from the East is not favorable to
the boys of the Olympic who had already

mountains. As Mr. Kennedy remarked '
"If good news had been received by Mr.
Oelrichs I would have heard from him im

almost convinced me that the Eastern
boxers have no particular desire of engag

crackerjacks of the Olympic and, to speak
the truth, I don't blame them, as they
would receive the worst drubbing they
ever got in their lives, and it wouldn't do,

PREVENTION OP CRUELTY.
The Society Proposes to Enforce the
8 O'clock Ordinance.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Children met yesterday. Secretary Mc-
Comb reported that 146 new cases were
investigated during March, the number of
children involved being 248. Of these 49
were placed in institutions, 6 in families
and 193 were returned to their parents.
There were 55 prosecutions, 43* convictions,
10 dismissals and 2 cases are pending trial.
A communication was received from
Eldridge T. Gerry of the New York Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children
relative to the Regaloncita case, which ap
peared in the Call two weeks ago. This
is the case of the little dancer who ap
peared at the Orpheum and on whose
account Manager Walter was arrested. Mr.
Gerry said :
These children have not only been driven out
of New York, but we believe that they, or their
mother and manager, have been arrested and
prosecuted in Boston and also in Chicago.
Their assertion that they have been permitted
to dance in this city is untrue. The case has
been carried through all the courts in this
State and the society has been sustained in
each. The case is now in the Supreme Court of
the United States, and only by the society
paying the cost of printing the papers, etc,
will it ever be concluded.
Tne secretary was instructed to prosecute
all cases of children appearing on the pub
lic stage pending a decision of the Supreme
Court. A resolution was adopted directing
the secretary to prosecute all violators of
the 8 o'clock ordinance, many complaints
from that source having been made.

AN ABANDONED BICYCLE.
A Woman May Have Been Con
nected With the Stagg
RENDEZVOUS NEAB OAKLAND.
The Story of a Constable Who Was
Watching- Browning and
The discovery of a lady's bicycle aban
doned on the ocean beach the morning
after the Stagg murder has added further
mystery to the case of the up-to-date train
robbers, footpads and murderers. It also
goes to show that Browning's and Brady's
companion may have been a woman
dressed in man's clothing. It is now well
known that Browning and Brady were fre
quently accompanied by a smooth-faced
young fellow of delicate build on many of
their bicycling trips to the park, cliff and
the Ingleside, and this person— apparently
a man of 20 years — may have been one of
Browning's and Brady's women friends.
Miss Tillie Liljegrist, daughter of Bra
dy's landlady, and Miss Minnie Besby, her
neighbor, were the companions of the two
murderers on trips when the four went to
the Cliff House, but they appeared always
in the costume ofjtheir sex, so far as is
Charles E. Williams, Frank Shaer, J. E.
Healy and Joseph Ericcson, four young
men living in the vicinity of the corner of
Twenty-fourth and Florida streets, wenf
out to the ocean beach on the morning of
March 17 and found a lady's bicycle about
100 feet from the end of the wharf of the
Olympic Salt Water Company.
Williams took it from there and rode it
to the wheelery below the life-saving sta
tion and left it there in charge of a special
policeman. The following Wednesday
Williams went out to the beach again and
asked the policeman whether any one had
called for it. Upon learning that no owner
had appeared Williams took the wheel and
rode home with it, leaving his address
with the policeman. He found the wheel
to be clogged with sand, and he noticed at
the time ne first saw it that it looked as if
it had had hard usage through dust and
sand. He cleaned it up on reaching his
home and he and his friends have been
having good times riding the bicycle ever
When the news came that the Stagg
murderers probably used bicycles to get
away from the scene of the crime "Williams
told Policeman Young about his discovery
on the morning after the murder. Young
informed Sergeant Burke, who took pos
session of the wheel and turned it over to
Captain Lees yesterday morning.
Mrs. Liljegnst's house was in darkness
last evening when a reporter called, but
the landlady came to the door. She said
her daughter was sleeping peacefully for
once and she would not disturb her. "Mrs.
Liljegrist said her daughter never owned a
bicycle and furthermore she had not been
out with Brady for over two months.
They had had a falling out, and her
daughter had refused to sneak to Brady
ever since the first part of February. Mrs.
Liljegrist also said that Miss Besby had
had a falling out with Browning at the same
time her daughter had with Brady. Mrs.
Liljegrist spoke very favorably of Brady,
and said she believed that if he was guilty
he must have been led astray by others.
Another story comes from Oakland to
the effect that .browning and Brady had a
rendezvous on the San Leandro road, the
exact location of which is only known to
Constable Benjamin Jones. His story is
as follows :
I knew both Browning and Brady well,
though they did not go by those names while
on this side of the bay. About six months ago I
learned they wanted to buy a horse. I took a
run out and was directed to their house and
saw Browning, who went by the name of
1 had two or three conversations with him
and finally one day he asked me whether I
was in any other business beside that of horse
tradiug. Brady was present at the time the
conversation occurred and when I told them
that I was a constable I saw them exchange a
startled look and after that the negotiations
for the horse lagged.
I learned that the woman in whose house
they were stopping had rented it about six
weeks before. She was recognized by some
people keeping a resort on the road as a person
who had kept a free and easy house in Seattle,
later in Portland and recently in San Fran
The two men never seemed to be doing any
thing except loafing abdut the place in
sweaters and bicycle trousers, and were very
non-committal when questioned regarding
They frequently left the house in the even
ing about dark, taking the cars running to
ward Oakland, and usually returned on a very
early car, though not always on the morning
following the evening they left. They would
remain at home for several days, arxd then sud
denly disappear again.
I was able to become perfectly familiar with
them during the visits that I made to the
house, and I am willing to swear, from the
pictuies of them that I have since seen, that
the two men were none other than Browning
The morning after Cornelius Stagg was killed
tho two men came over from San Francisco on
an early morning boat, and after taking a
drink at Twenty-third avenue took the electric
car, buying tickets for Haywards. They seemed
to be excited about something and evaded the
questions of several people who knew them
from seeing them transfer there before.
A few days later both men suddenly disap
peared from the house; no one seeing them
leave. I know this, because I was watching
them and went out to make inquiries. The
woman said they had gone to Nevada.
Then came the news that Sheriff Bogard had
teen murdered, and from the descriptions
given of his slayers I knew that they were the
men I had been trailing.
I went to the neighborhood of the rendezvous
yesterday and at once learned that Brady had
returned, but that Browning, or George, as the
people about there called him, was still absent.
Brady suddenly vanished. Soon atter I came
down town a friend of mine gave him a check
for $10 to get cashed in Oakland.
He said he would be back in a couple of
hours, but up to noon to-day had not put in an
appearance. I think he must have grown sus
picious through seeing me about and left for
some other part of the State. I cannot be mis
taken about the men for their descriptions
tally to a hair with those given out by the
police. When I saw a picture of Browning I
recognized him as George in an instant with
out being told who the photo represented.
Herbert C. Evans, who keeps an express
wagon on Twenty-third avenue, near Twelfth
street, was equally positive that the men he
often saw going on board the Haywards elec
tric-cars on early morning trips were none
other than Browning and Brady, and I saw
them frequently, he said, and when their por
traits were published I recognized them at
GRAND JURY ANTICIPATED.
Why Patrolman McGrayn Had to Raid
There is a queer little story told in con
nection with Police Officer Richard J. Mc-
Grayn's appearance before the Grand Jury.
For the past two months the clock games
have been running with a good deal of reg
The Grand Jury decided to investigate
this species of gambling, and last Friday
Patrolman McGrayn was summoned be
fore that body. He told of the clock
games and declared that if he could be ex
cused for an hour he would get his papers
and give a more detailed report. In an
hour he returned, but stated that he had
mislaid his papers and asked for further
time. He was noticed to appear Monday
He appeared yesterday afternoon, but the
the clock games had been raided in the
morning, and to explain this Police Officer
McGrayn declared that he had been sum
moned by Captain Douglass and told to
raid the clock games.
He pleaded with the captain, so he told
the grand jurors, that he was to appear be
fore the Grand Jury in the afternoon and
that they might think he had broken faith
if the raid was made meantime.
The answer was an order to make the
raid and it was obeyed.
