The steamer Caroline, looking spick and

on her old route between here and San
Quentin for the past several days carrying
jute. It is over six months since jute has |
been hauled to the prison and from this on
about twenty bales a day will be consumed
in the manufacture of bags.
The Caroline is one of the best known
vessels on the bay and now enjoys the dis
tinction of being one of the speediest. She
has been practically rebuilt from stem to
stern, only the forward part of the old for-

THE FIGHT HAS BEGUN.
Coast Seamen Have Caused
the Arrest of Men Who
Will Be Vigorously Prosecuted In
the United States
L. A. Rickoff, shipping master of the
Ship-owners' Association, and W. Sand
stad, bookkeeper of the Sailors' Home,
were arrested to-day by the United States
Marshal for violating the United States
shipping regulations in exacting advance
money from sailors.
The complaining witnesses are Joseph
P. Dailey and Alexander Anderson, and
they charge that Rickoff and Sandstad
engaged them for a voyage to Alaska and
return on the American bark Harvester at
$25 a month and $15 advance. The ad
vance money was paid them, and when
the union learned of the fact Secretary
Furuseth at once swore out warrants for
their arrest. Rickoff and Bandstadat once
furnished bail and were released.
The coasting sailors have all along been
opposed to the payment of an advance.
Members of the union were bound not to
accept it. but outsiders were only too glad
to get it, and by this means non-union
crews were Becured for vessels. Under the
old law an advance could be paid the rela
tives of a sailor, but the new act doe* away
with the provision, except in the case of
whaling vessels, and the Harvester cannot
be put in that class. The penalty is a fine
of not less than four times the amount ad
vanced the sailor or imprisonment for six
months, or both.
This is the first serious move made by
the Seamen's Union of the Pacific in the
present tight. Under the old law it was
impossible to convict the ship-owners for
paying an advance on a coasting vessel.
Since the Maguire act has become law,
however, the officers of the'union think a
conviction in the Harvester case is certain
and they now think they have the Ship
owners' Association at their mercy. The
war is now on and the Seamen's Union
says it will break up the boarding-masters'
combine and the Ship-owners Associa
tion or go to pieces in the attempt. Secre
tary Walthew of the Ship-owners' Associ
ation is very complacent over the turn
affairs have taken and asserts that he can
prove no advance was paid to any sailor
who went out on the Harvester.
BIG TRANSACTION IN WINE.
The California Wine-Dealers' Associa
tion Much Exercised in Regard
to the Affair.
The largest personal wine deal ever made
in this State was consummated last week
when F. Chevalier & Co. of this city bought
from Dondell & Co. of St. Helena, Cal.,
400,000 gallons of dry wine, which is now
stored in Chateau Chevalier at St. Helena.
The wine has already been sold to promi
nent wine-dealers in New York, where
California wines are commanding better
prices each year.
The California Association of Wine
dealers are much stirred up over the sale.
As an association they have been buying
up and shipping urine East. They had
agreed to take the 400,000 gallons of Don
dell & .Son. who were members of the
association, but failed to keep their agree
ment as to the prices agreed upon. George
Chevalier, manager of the firm, saw his
opportunity, bought up the whole lot, and
will immediately begin shipping it East.

ties on that occasion.
DIPHTHERIA IN THE AIR.
Complaints of Many Residents at
North Beach Caused by a Con
A complaint was made this week at the
Health Office that the contractor at work
on the Fair property at the foot of Pierce
street on North Beach had stopped all out
let for a flow of water at that point and
that a pool of water had gathered as the
result, extending for the length of several
blocks along Lombard street; that it had
overflowed a tract of land which had been
under cultivation by some Chinamen and
had driven them from their houses; that
the water had become stagnant and very
offensive to residents for many blocks
around; that diphtheria had broken out in
the neighborhood, and that something like
an epidemic was following and that sev
eral deaths from the disease had taken
place, and that it was supposed the ill
smelling, stagnant pool was the cause of it.
An officer was sent to the place yester-
day, and found the facts as to the pool as
reuresented, also that there was consider
able diphtheria in the neighborhood and
the residents are very much alarmed. The
matter will be reported at the next meet
ing of the board and action will be taken
to abate the nuisance.
A NEW CAMERA CLUB.
The Young Men's Christian Association
Is to Have a Camera
The latest annex to be formed in the
Young Men's Christian Association is a
Camera Club, and already it is gathering
to itself all the camera enthusiasts of the
association. There are thirty-five so far,
and with that number it has been consid
ered advisable to organize. This was ac
cordingly done yesterday.
The officers of the new annex are George
Walker, president; O. L. Hall, vice-presi
dent, and E. M. Bixby, secretary.
Hall and Bixby, the vice-pieeident and
secretary respectively of the annex, have
been appointed a committee to secure ap
paratus for the rooms. They will provide
an enlarging camera and also a portrait
camera, both the best obtainable, besides
all the apparatus and chemicals necessary
to fit up their photographic laboratory for
all kinds of work.
The rooms to be used have already been
set apart for the annex on the fifth floor of
the building. There are two of them now,
but as the annex increases a third will be
All members of the association will be
allowed to join the annex, but there will
be no outsiders. Monthly does of perhaps
25 cents, or some small amount, will be
exacted to keep the rooms and apparatus
in good condition and the bottles on the
laboratory shelves filled. Beyond this all
the conveniences of the rooms and accesso
ries will be free to all the members. There
are a number of excellent amateur pho
tographers in the association and it is ex

BAD NEWS FOR TEACHERS.
A Big Shortage In Funds May
Cause a Cut in
The Apportionment Is $14,000 Less
Than Was Reasonably Ex
Speaking of financial deficits and strin
gency Superintendent Moulder of the pub
lic schools received a startling communica
tion from Superintendent of Public In
struction Black yesterday. It was a state
ment in which he estimated the July ap
portionment for the city and county of
San Francisco for public schools at $3 per
census child. The "census child" numbers
68,390, which, multiplied by $3, gives just
$203,170 as the amount for the July ap
portionment for the schools of this city
and coun ty.
Any child in the fourth grade could
figure that out, but there is another little
problem in subtraction which the heads of
departments and not the pupils will have
to struggle with.
The estimate which Auditor Broderick
had figured out as about right for the en
tire fiscal year for the schdbls was $600,000.
This apportionment of $205,000 will come
into the present fiscal year, while another
apportionment comes along next January.
As Superintendent Moulder figures 'it
there will be a deficit for the year, accord
ing to the figures of the Superintendent of
Public Instruction, amounting to about
"What will we do about it?" he said
yesterday, in response to the question.
:> \Ve will simply have to economize, that's
all. We will probably hare to make a cut
in salaries of teachers all along the line.
Deficits seem to be the order of the day,
and we will have to adjust ourselves to
these conditions if we can find no way to
change the conditions."

NO CLEW TO THE THEFTS.
Conflicting Tales as to the
Cost of the Stolen
VALUABLE NAPOLEONIC MEDALS
Superintendent McLaren Suggests
That the Curio Case Be
The looting of the Midwinter Fair
Museum has thrown the officials at the
Golden Gate Park into a state of conster
There is an effort being made to show
that the loss is inconsiderable, and such
may be the case; yet the fact that the
pilferers were able to get away with even
the smallest object in the collection of
curios came as a startling revelation to
Park Superintendent McLaren and his
assistants. If the robbers could abstract a
handful of coins why was it not possible
for them to carry off as many other articles
as might please them?
From the conflicting and widely varying
stories of those in charge of the museum,
it is impossible at this time to give any
thing like an accurate estimate of the value
of the stolen property.
For example, Charles P. Wilcomb, cus
todian of the museum, while admitting
that twenty-five valuable Napoleonic
medals were taken from the French ex
hibit, denies positively that any coins are
missing. On the other hand, L. A. Hagen
camp, a museum watchman, says that if
20-franc gold pieces are coins, then coins
were stolen from the same case with the
medals. These young men also disagree
as to the methods used by the robbers in
securing their booty. Wilcomb asserts
that the screw eyes were pulled out — an
easy matter, for the screws are short and
the wood the softest kind of pine.
Hapencamp is willing to swear that the
Yale locks were broken and that the screw
eyes were not pulled out at all.
Superintendent McLaren, who examined
the cases on Friday morning soon after
the robbery was discovered, corroborates
the story of Watchman Hagencamp. He
says that the locks were broken, and adds
laconically: "Strange case, strange case.
What next, I wonder? They ought to
chain those cases down."
Be this, however, as it may, the fact re
mains that the robbers got in somehow
and secured valuable property, then van
ished, leaving not the slightest clew for
Chief Crowley's detectives, who are putting
in a good deal of hard work on the case.
Wncomb, McLaren and at least two of
the detectives are of the opinion that it is
the work of men formerly employed in the
construction of the building, who knew
well the insecure method of fastening the
cases. Others are of the opinion that only
professional cracksmen could have been
The medals which were stolen— Wilcomb
will not admit that he has lost anything
else — were purchased from Tiffany" some
months ago by Mr. de Young, and formed
a part of the Napoleonic collection in the
French room, consisting of about 800
medals and coins in gold, bronze, tin,
brass, copper, iron and other metals
minted during the reign of the first Napo
leon, whose passion for this branch of art
is a matter of history.
Among the missing pieces are half a
dozen medals commemorating his Rus
sian, German, Italian and Egyptian cam
paigns. Several others show nim as a
lieutenant, then as a general and finally
as First Consul. Upon others he is repre
sented with the Empress Josephine, Marie
Louise and Charlemagne.

but a rare gold medallion was carried off,

representing on one side the infant King
of Rome and on the other Romulus and
Remus. Among the missing medals is one
of great value. It is of gold, and was
struck in London, representing Napoleon
riding a mule on his way to the Elbe.
Hereafter a watchman is to be stationed
in the French room day and night. The
cases are all to have heavy iron bands
placed around them, and instead of screw
eyes staples are to be used.
It is hinted, too, that Superintendent
McLaren's half jocular suggestion is to be
adopted, and that the cases are to be
chained to the floor.

America with his parents at an early age.
While the family lived in the State of New

from New York by way of Mexico, crossing at
San Bias, to San Francisco, arriving on April
6, 1849. He went to the Big Bar on the Mid=

in placer mining with varying success. H^
became dissatisfied and returned to the city,
engaging in his trade of millwright and en=
gineer. Then he started in the tug business
on the bay, in which he continued till October
28, 1853, when he was appointed on the police

IN SPITE OF DISBARMENT
A Supreme Court Order Does
Not Stop Philbrook From
He Will Seek an Elective Office and
Ask People to Vote
"So he ruled against me? Well, that is
the tirst I heard of it," was the remark of
Attorney Horace W. Philbrook last night
when informed that Judge Hunt had de
nied his motion to be substituted as plain
tiff in the action of Seth Warner against
the F. Thomas Parisian Dyeing Works.
Mr. Philbrook, it will be remembered, is
the attorney who some time ago in a
brief filed in the Supreme Court made
serious charges against one of the Justices
of that court. The language he used was
of such a severe character that the Supreme
Court decided that the attorney had been
guilty of improper conduct, and made an
Ofder that he be "disbarred for the period
of three years and until further order of
The judgment of the Supreme Court,
Mr. Philbrook says, will not prevent him
from appearing in any court m the State,
even tne Supreme Court, and arguing
points of law. This he did last Saturday
before Judge Ellsworth of the Superior
Court of Alameda County. A man bad
been arrested for violation of the license
law and was kept in jail in default of bail.
Mr. Philbrook, who had been sent for, dis
covered that there was a novel point of
law at issue, so he at once swore to a petition
for a writ of habeas corpus to secure the
release of the prisoner. He subsequently
appeared before Judge Ellsworth, who was
to hear the writ, when the Judge informed
him that in view of the action taken by
the Supreme Court he could not permit
him to appear.
"But, remarked Mr. Philbrook, "your
Honor will hear me, for the law permits
any one to appear as his own attorney and
as I am the petitioner 1 have the right to
appear for myself."
Judge Ellsworth conceded that the law
gave him that right, and Mr. Philbrook
went on with his argument, and will re
sume it this week.
Another step in the way of practicing
law was taken last week by Mr. Philbrook,
and that was when he obtained an assign
ment, made out in due form of law, by
B«th Warner, making him the plaintiff in
the action against the Thomas dye works.
The motion for substitution was argued by
the assignee on Friday and submitted..
Yesterday Judge Hunt made an order de
nying the motion.
"The motion was denied for personal
reasons only," said Mr. Philbrook, "as
there is no law for it. There has been a
little unpleasantness between Judge Hunt
and myself, and I suppose that the denial
of the motion was because of that.
"What shall Ido in the matter? Well,
that is a matter for future consideration.
There are many steps to be taken yet.
There is no law that can prevent a man
who is the plaintiff in a case from appear
ing in court for himself. This matter was
regularly assigned to me, and the motion
to substitute ought to have been granted.
"Now, there is that judgment of disbar
ment entered against me by the
Supreme Court— that is void, and the court
knows it. If I was guilty of contempt, the
only punishment they could visit was
either fine or imprisonment. That was
settled in the case of Stephen J. Field,
forty years ago, when he was ad
judged guilty of contempt. The appellate
court held that he could not be disbarred
as a punishment for contempt. There is
another decision, some twenty years ago,
of a similar tenor. Then, again, if disbar
ment is a punishment for contempt, as
the Supreme Court says, why the disbar
ment must be absolute or for a iixed time.
In my case it is neither, and Iso advised
the court, but it did not avail.
"If the bill which was passed by the
Legislature and which would have met my
case, but was vetoed by Governor Build.
had been passed earlier in the session, ii
would have been passed over his veto, foi
every one in the Legislature, except a fey»
ignorant of the law and a few timid law«
yers, were with me. I will try again two
years hence, and at the same time I will
go before the people for their suffrage, and
they will support me. I am sure they will,

THE FIRST WILL CAMP.
Lacking a State Appropriation the lli>gi«
ment Will Take the Field at
Its Own Expense.
The First Infantry Regiment is to go to
camp. It was so decided at a meeting of
the officers of the regiment last night. The
First will get no appropriation from the
State for camping purposes this year, but
despite this fact the men are going any
way on regimental money.
The strike of last July and the service of
the militia in consequence has interfered
to a considerable extent with the plans of
the regiments which were called out. The
First nad arranged to go into camp last
fall, but it was called nnder arms to Sac*
ramento during the railroad strike instead,
and the camp trip was given up. In the
appropriation the allowance for the Na
tional Guard was so cut into by the Legis*
lature that there is nothing left for camp
ing purposes, and it ia for that reason, if it
camps at all, the First roust camp at its
own expense. It has decided nevertheless
A committee consisting of Captain Rob

and Lieutenant Thomas A. Cluff has been
