THE IRON QUIRT FIRST
She Won the Six-Furlong Han
dicap From a Good
Lot.
A REMARKABLE RACE MARE.
The Talent on the Short End Again,
Four Favorites Going
Down.
In turf annals Blitzen and Barnum are
generally mentioned as the iron horses,
and I certainly think the little California
mare Quirt deserving of a place with these
famous metallic equines of the racing
world. Upon her arrival at the track
early during the present meeting, after a
most bruising campaign throughout the
California circuit, often running two races
a day, at distances ranging from half a
mile to a mile and a quarter, the bald
faced daughter of Joe Hooker was looked
upon as a sort of badge horse or country fair
"plater," and her owner, William Dixon,
with difficuly secured a stall. But she
commanded respect before the meeting had
progressed very far, and in the speediest
kind of company at that. Up to and in
cluding yesterday's performance she has
started in thirty-nve races and been inside
of the money twenty-five times, which
includes seven first moneys. On several
occasions she has had notoriously bad
riders, or this number of winning brackets
would have been augmented by at least
three more winnings. This showing is all
the more remarkable when the fact is
taken into consideration that none of the
races in which she started, with one excep
tion, were selling affairs.
Starting in the six-furlong handicap yes
terday with 105 pounds up, she went to the
post with fours about her, although 6to 1
was at one time obtainable. Beliicoso was
the talent's choice and he closed at 13 to 10
in the betting. Playful was also heavily
backed at fours, and her run is certainly
deserving of explanation. Being beaten
one day an eyelash in 1:14 for the six fur
longs and the next time out at nearly the
same weights to be beaten away off is not
form.
Fanny Louise and Beliicoso headed the
field into the stretch, the favorite being
beaten shortly after making the turn.
Chevalier, in third position with Quirt,
came on and beat Fannie Louise without
trouble by a scant length. Beliicoso was
third, a neck further away. Chevalier rode
an excellently judged race on the winner.
The race was a fast one, the six furlongs
being compassed in 1:13%.
As has happened very often of late, the
success of the speculative fraternity can be
imagined when it is stated that two out of
the six favorites won, and it strikes me
that the thirteen bookmakers that "cut
in" yesterday had slightly the best of it.
The talent made the Elmwood stock
farm's Xervoso a 13 to 10 favorite for the
opening event, a five and a half furlong
run, but he could do no better than finish
second to Mamie Scott,a 12 to 1 chance, the
first of the get of Canny Scot to earn a
winning bracket. Blue Bell, the second
choice, who led into the stretch, finished
an ordinary third.
The same Elmwood stock farm seemed
bound to be the talents ruin, for in the next
race, the half-mile run for two-year-olds, the
Gypsette gelding won off the reel, finish
ing a length and a half in front of Don
Gara, the second choice, with Joan, the 7
to 10 favorite, third.
The mile selling race looked like "honey
in the comb" for Jack Richelieu, and he
went into the starter's hand a 2 to 5 chance,
with Ingomar second choice at 13 to 5.
Well, Jack had to step some, much faster
than his backers figured on, and it took
some very vigorous riding on Griffin's part
to land him in front, downing the Ken
tucky stable's horse, who is rounding into
something like his old form, a neck in
1:41 >_. Mary S got the show.
George Rose's game cripple Nephew
took the third race from Seraphin by three
parts of a length in a drive, after turning
into tne stretch fourth. Annie Moore fin
ished in third position. The very good
price of 4 to 5 was laid against the winner,
who but for his lameness would be very
nearly a stake horse.
With 14 to 5 against him, Don Fulano
ran a much better race than he did a day
or so aeo at 3to 5. Some horses seem
affected that way. Chartreuse, the Bto 5
favorite, although carrying several hun
dred dollars of her owners money, could
do no better than finish second to Don
Fulano, who seemed in stake form yes
terday. Entering the stretch third, he
passed Mollie R and Chartreuse and won
handily, steppin^the short six furlongs in
1:12%. In the race on Wednesday? in
which Don Fulano was beaten by Realiza
tion, the official time as hung out for the
five and a half furlongs was given as 1:08%.
I have learned that outside watches made
the time 1:07%, which gives the race a
much better look. Mulholland.

Chevalier rode two winners yesterday.
Seamstress was backed down from a
long price in the opening race, but showed
to poor advantage. -- - , •
The Gypsette gelding is a full brother to
Nebuchadnezzar.
Phil Archibald's friends were pleased to
see him on the block once more. Phil
was always popular with the talent.
Ed Purser and Charles Quinn were both
down on Playful, and on form she should
have been much closer up.

Fanny Louise a good one, and risked a bet
I or two on her.

At a recent meeting of the St. Bernard
Club the following sportsmen Vere elected
members: T. J. Tate, H. E. Yard lev and H.
J. Sarchett, of Sacramento; C. J.Adair,
L. J. Rowell and J. B. Wingate, of this city.
This young organization is going forward
with a vim unknown to any of the other
specialty clubs in the country.
The Los Angeles bench show opens on
Wednesday, the 17th inst. About twenty
, dogs of various breeds will go from this
city to compete. It is probable, however,
that many more would have gone from
this quarter had the southern club been a
little more generous with their special
prizes.
Last week attention was drawn to what
appeared like a clerical error in the prem- 1
ium list of the Pacific Kennel Club with re- j
gard to greyhounds, but was a printer's
error, and the club has inserted since then,
in its premium list, under the greyhound |
heading, the same offer as it gives to all
other important breeds, which is as fol- |
lows: "The Pacific Kennel Club offers
$10 for the best exhibit of four, regardless
of sex and age, all the bona-fide property
of the person or kennel making the
entries."
The question of cropping dogs just now
in England is causing considerable commo
tion among all classes, and recently several |
persons have both been fined and sent to I
prison for the offense, and already the anti- |
cropping wave has reached this country
and the Canadas.
There is a stake at Casserly's Park also
for thirty-two dogs. The following is the
' draw : ; -.;v
J. Tracy's London vs. A. Merrill's Jennie G,

BENCH SHOW IN FEOSPECT.
It Is Expected to Have 500 to 600 Dogs on
View.
People do not often go to the dogs with a
full consciousness of what they are doing,
but that is what a large number will do in
this city when the Pacific Kennel Club
opens its bench show at the Mechanics'
Pavilion on May 8. It is proposed to keep
the show open for four days, and T. J.
Watson, chairman of the bench-show com
mittee, says the club expects to give the
biggest exhibition ever held west of the
Rocky Mountains. He said:
"We have as fine a class of dogs as are
owned in the United States. In fact, Cali
fornia field-trial dogs, I claim, lead those
from any other part of the country.
"We expect to have between 500 and 600
entries. Applications have been received
from Oregon, Washington,' Southern Cali
fornia, and even from Victoria, B. C.
"John Davidson of Monroe. Mich., who is
recognized as one of the best all-around
judges in An-erica, has been engaged to act
as judge for all the classes. He has acted
! in this capacity in all the leading cities of
the country.
"In addition to the handsome and valu-
I able premiums we shall award for dogs,
I we have decided to offer prizes for the
; best-decorated kennels, Miss Mary D.
Bates having kindly consented to act as
judge of kennel decorations." .
The office of the club is at 630 Market
street, where entries will be received. The
bench-show committee of the club consists
of T. J. Watson, Howard Vernon, H. Bier,
C. A. Haight and Thomas Higgs.
BASEBALL.
Meeting of Two Crack Amateur Nines-The
Ban Francisco Club.
The Olympic baseball nine will meet the
Pacific niue at Central Park to-morrow.
The game will be called at 10 o'clock sharp,
and, according to Manager Kennedy, the
Pacifies will receive the greatest surprise
in their lives when the Olympic pitcher
gets down to hard work.
At a meeting held on April 9, the San
Francisco baseball Club was organized un
der the management of Edward Gilson,
and is composed of the following well
known amateur players: D. Dextraze/M-
Murphy, J. Kelly, J. Hearty, E. Peters, J.
Johnson, J. Jeffreys, J.O'Connell, E. Smith.
It would be pleased to hear from any

New Yorkers Again Defeat the
Chicagoans at Water
Polo.
CAPTURE TWO STRAIGHT GAMES
Just a Little Claret Is Spilled Dur
ing the Rather Heated
Scrimmages.
NEW YORK, N. V., April To-night
at the meetine of the Chicago A. A. team
with the N. Y. A. C, representatives for
the championship of America at water
polo, the New Yorkers, through the excel
lent work of W. F. Dickey and the inter
ference of N. Murray, secured a goal in
1 :47. The teams lined up as follows :
New York A. Position. Chicago.
W. G. Douglass. .......Right for ward... S. H. Hunt
W. F. Dickey ...Left forward J. Smith
P. F. Dickey Center rush.. . .G. W. Thorpe
N. Murray Quarterback..W. Thompson
C.J. Kintner Goal ...L. E. Burr
E. F. Hauboln Goal B. S. Donnelly
Precisely at 8:31 P. m. Referee J. M.
Davis threw the ball into the water and
blew the whistle.
The twelve contestants dropped into the
water with a loud, splash, and W. E.
Dickey grabbed the ball just behind
the Chicago captain by about four
inches. Dickey passed it back to Murray,
and they worked |it cleverly within a
few inches of the goal, when Donnelly
caught it and threw it back to Thompson
in the middle of the tank. W. E. Dickey
then got the ball and rushed like a streak
through, the Chicagoans, assisted by the
interference of his namesake, and Murray
scored the only goal of the night. Time,
1:47.- ■-'.•.
The Western men then played carefully
and desperately. Thompson hit W. E.
i Dickey with his right hand on the nose,
drawing blood, and Dickey returned the
j compliment and Thompson's nose was
j soon bleeding copiously. This was the
' only show of bitter feeling exhibited dur
| ing the game. For the remainder of the
I first half the Western men played on the
j defensive.
In the second half the New Yorkers by
a succession of tricky passes between Mur
ray and Haubold, Dickey and Kintner,
managed to consume the entire eight min
utes.
New York having won two out of three
games scheduled wins the American
championship, and probably in the near
j future the teams may meet again in the
West. .

California Versus Michigan.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 12.— It. is
highly prooable that . the proposed meet
between the University of California and
the University of Michigan will be a go.
The former proposes to stop over on its
way to or from the intercollegiate meet in
New York. The principal difficulty in the
way is that of securing a date, alf the Sat
urdays available being taken by baseball
games. The meet may be held in Detroit
if the faculty will consent, ,

IF TEACHERS MAY MARRY
Superintendent Moulder Says
They Should Have That
Right.
Questions Raised by Henderson's
Resolution to Remove the
Barrier.
A great interest is being manifested by
teachers of the School Department in Di
rector Henderson's resolution to repeal the
old rule in restraint of I marriage laid upon
women teachers.
The rule is a very old one, and provides
that when a woman teaching in the depart
ment married it was eqvivalent to submit
ting her resignation. The rule was adopted
after a good deal of discussion upon the
subject, and for reasons that seemed man
ifest and entirely sufficient to the board.
It was during the previous incumbency of
Superintendent Moulder, who registered
himself as against it.
At a recent informal meeting of the
present board in committee of the whole,
this rule became a subject of discussion
and Superintendent Moulder took occasion
to say that he did not believe the rule
would stand in law. ; "If any teacher
chooses to marry and decides to contest
this rule with us in court I am quite cer
tain we would lose," ihe said. "In the
first place it discriminates to the advantage
of the male teachers and in the second it
is a well known constitutional principle
that no law in restraint of marriage can
stand." •- - ,:
Speaking of the matter yesterday after
noon, Mr. Moulder said : "It is a very deli
cate question. I was a little surprised
when Mr. Henderson introduced his reso
lution, as I was not aware that he intended
to do so. ' Indeed, I am very glad that I
was not consulted, although of course I
favor it for the reasons stated. The great
majority of the teachers in the department
are young women of marriageable age.
This rule might well operate to deter many
of them from marrying where the pros
pective husband in the case might not be
in position to provide an establishment.
There is no sound reason why the young
woman, if she were so disposed, should
not marry — reason except this rule. \
"It will be noticed that the rule does not
prevent a married woman from being ap
pointed to the department, but requires
the resignation of one in the department
who marries. The operation of the ; rule
has been evaded by teachers resigning
when about to marry and being afterward
reappointed." -
One reason which is being urged . against
the repeal of the rules is, that if the lady
teachers are allowed to marry and retain
their positions they are likely to be sought
by the never-do-well young man looking
for a wife capable of ■ earning enough for
two and who will thereafter allow the
teacher to provide for him. .
To this argument the answer is made
that a young woman who can so far take
care of herself as to secure and hold a posi
tion as teacher in the public school may be
trusted further with her own affairs, of
which the question of marriage is essen
tially one.
The resolution will be acted upon at the
next meeting of the board.
BOYCOTT A BAKER.
The Labor Council Declares War
Against the Log Cabin— Other
Difficulties.
One boycott was declared last night by
the Labor Council and another was threat
ened. A boycott was declared against the
Log Cabin Bakery. .The proprietors, Ward
Brothers, it was - reported, . worked their
men seven days a week instead of six and
finally discharged two men and made the
NEW TO-DAT-DRY GOODS.
remaining bakers do the same amount
of work that had been done before the dis
charge of their comrades.
The committee who called upon Ward
Brothers reported that the manager of the
bakery told them he didn't care whether
they boycotted him or not. It was decided
to boycott him. :•: ';
The furniture-workers won a nine-hour
day after a hard struggle seven years ago.
Last week the George H. Fuller Desk Com
pany made its men work ten hours a day
without an increase of pay. A committee
was appointed to investigate the matter,
and an attempt will be made to adjust it
amicably.
The carbuilders and furniture-makers
said they understood that the directors of
the new valley railroad were negotiating
for the building of their cars in Eastern
factories.
This roused a heated discussion. The
representatives of the various unions said
that such action ill became a road that de
pended upon popular support for its very
existence. The speakers urged that the
cars could be built of as good material and
just as cheap here as in the East. The
case of John Hammond, who bid on street
cars successfully against two Eastern firms
and was now building the cars, was cited
as a proof.
It was held that the company should
have the cars built here, or better still,
that it should build car shops of its own.
J. W. Callahan, a delegate of the
National Brotherhood of Garment Work
ers, complained that many firms in San
Francisco were handling clothing made by
the prisoners at Sing Sing, N. Y. A com
mittee of three was appointed to investi
gate the matter.
RETA-WOLF TRAGEDY.
"We Die for Love" Were the Last
.' .'Words of the Unfortunate
Girl.
"Died from a gunshot wound, Inflicted
while temporarily deransred" and "Died
from a gunshot wound inflicted by Carlos
Enrico Reta" were' the verdicts returned by
a Coroner's jury in the case of Carlos
Enrico Reta and Miss Adele Wolf, who
were found dead in the Palace Hotel last
week.
The first witness called was Miss Marie
Wolf, a sister of the deceased. She told of
having received a letter from the dead
woman, which stated that she and Reta
were going to the Palace Hotel to kill
themselves. Miss Wolf destroyed the
letter, because she did not want any one
to know its contents. The only passage in
it that she could distinctly remember was,
"We die for love." She had known Reta
about six months, or during the time he
was teaching her sister. At ten minutes
to 6 o'clock on the fatal Thursday evening
Reta called to take her sister to the theater,
and that was the last time she saw them
alive.
"■ Adolph Wolf told . of his going to the
Palace because of the note from his sister
Adele. He told tne officers that Reta was
upstairs with his sister and was going to
kill . her. Detective Glennon and Officer
Butterworth told of the finding of the
bodies. . "
| The , mystery surrounding the death of
the young , people is therefore still un
solved. There is ■at present ■ in the Post
office registry department a square box
and a letter addressed to Miss Wolf.
They are "both addressed, "Miss Adele
Wolf, General Delivery Postoffice. To be
called for." On both sides of the box is
written, "From Carlos Reta." Both letter
and box were mailed the day before the
tragedy. • , .
.The Coroner attempted to gain posses
sion of the letter and parcel, but the postal
authorities refused to give them up.

IN THE JEWISH PULPITS
Dr. Jacob Nieto Discusses
"Earnestness vs. En- ,
thusiasm."
Professor Sanger on "The Life and
Works of Heinrich
Heine."
Good attendance was the rule at the
Hebrew places of worship last night.
Preaching at the Taylor-street Synagogue
on the subject, "Earnestness ys. Enthusi
asm," Dr. Jacob Nieto said :
I To use the words of Schiller, "Earnestness"
I tries to foresee a result and attendant inci
j dents, while "Enthusiasm" never considers the
: sacrifice and is constantly making it. . • . r=
"Earnestness," it might be argued, is the
! steady fixity of purpose by which a man en
i deavors to carry out some object or matured
j plan, the result of ambition, personal or gen
; eral. This fixity of purpose induces the tenac
ity, courage and fortitude which are necessary
to withstand the onslaughts of opposition and
adverse circumstances over and above the
| induced discretion which makes a man
calculate every step and force every accident
into that groove which will carry him on to
success. Enthusiasm is like the furious boil
ing of a kettle, under which a strong flame is
placed. As long as there is fuel to feed the fire
and a sufficient supply of oxygen to keen up
the combustion the water will boil, steam'
will be emitted and force enough wasted,
which, if treasured up and properly directed,
would mean a great deal. Take the flame
! away, the water ceases to boil, steam is no
more emitted; energy is dead.
Hundreds of plans for the benefit of society
and communities are daily conceived and only
because it falls to the lot of the enthusiast in
stead of the man of earnest endeavor they
terminate in failure.
At the Temple Emanu-El Professor Sen
ger of the University of California occu
pied the pulpit last evening. The learned
firofessor entertained his audience with a
engthy lecture descriptive of the life and
work of Heinrich Heine. He said :
The critics of Heine have compared him to
Aristotle, Cervantes, Beranger, Voltaire,
Schiller and Shakespeare, and for every com
parison there is good and sufficient reason.
After a summary of the history of Prussia
and of its struggle for freedom the lecturer
gave some account of the birth and times of
the German poet:
He was born In Dusseldorf, in 1799. For a
short time and against his will he was occu
pied in business, but later he entered the uni
versities of Berlin and Go in gen, at which
latter place he took the degree of Doctor of
Laws. In 1827 he published a book of songs,
which created a sensation. He criticized the
reactionary politics of the times, which at once
precluded the possibility of his obtaining that
which he sought— Government appointment.
Particularly severe were his writings anent
the public censor, against whom he waged in
cessant war.
In a few years Heine went to reside in Paris,
and immediately became one of the literary
lights of the French capital. Alexander Dumas
said of him, wh»n he heard of tbe indignities
heaped on Heine's head in Germany:
If Germany refuses to recognize Heine, we
will adopt him as one of us; but, alas, Heine
loves Germany more than us.
After the death of Goethe, it Is an undoubted
fact that Heine's was the greatest mind in the
German literary world. In 1848 he was stricken
with paralysis, and seven years after he died
and was buried at the foot ofMontmartre. The
stone which marks his grave bears the simple
inscription, "Heinrich Heine."
HALES POSITION.
Prison Directors Awaiting an Inspection
by Governor Budd — Fitzgerald
to Be Seated.
Warden ■ Hale is likely to , retain his
position as chief executive officer, of San
Quentin prison for some little time yet, if,
indeed, he does not secure a reappointment.
' .No action will be taken by the Board of
Prison Directors until - Governor Budd has
paid a visit to San Quentin, When Gov
ernor Budd took his seat he asked
the Board of Prison Directors
,that?; they take no steps toward
making a selection of a warden for San
Quentin until after he could find time to
make a personal inspection of the place,
and, if necessary, an • investigation of the
affairs of the prison. Governor Budd has
been In San Francisco a great deal recently,
but he has not gone to the State's big insti
tution, even though Warden Hale's term
expired a week ago to-day. It is therefore
almost a sure thing that Warden Hale will
continue to live for at least a month more
at the pretty terraced home he has on the
northern shores of the bay.
The Directors are desirous of retaining
War§enHale in his position. They have
full power in the matter, but they are evi
dently acting in a very courteous manner
to the Governor. There are no factions in
the board, as has been represented.
Neither will there be a fight between J. B.
Ivory and R. M. Fitzgerald over the posi
tion as fifth member of the Board of Direc
tors. Fitzgerald will be recognized by all
the other Directors and Ivory will not
make any contest.
- A most valuable director will be lost, for
Mr. Ivory has been an earnest worker
while on the board. As the directors are
in favor of retaining Warden' Hale it is
hardly possible that they will concede too
many points out of courtesy if he attempts
to make a fight. If any row takes place it
will be between the Governor on one side
and the four directors on the other.
I Warden Hale spoke freely but quietly on
the subject. He said :
I know of no rupture in the board and I don't
believe there is any. As far as I am concerned
I would like to remain in my position if the
Governor and the directors see fit to retain me.
If not, I will extend the right hand of fellow
ship to my successor and cheerfully show him
how the place has been managed so he can
decide how to act when he takes the position.
I only hope that Governor Budd or some one
in authority would make an investigation. I
believe it would redound to my credit, for I am
certainly proud of the record of my manage
ment. I do not care to say more as I have
never allowed any of my men to compare my
administration with that of any former
warden.
The records show, however, that not a single
convict has escaped during the four years he
has been in charge of the prison, whereas the
lowest number of escaped prisoners in any four
years previous was thirteen.
The Alameda a Flyer.
On her last trip to Sydney, N. S. W., the
Oceanic steamship Alameda arrived in that
port two days ahead of time, proving herself to
be an ocean flyer indeed. Her time from San
Francisco to Sydney was 18 days 13J< hours.
From Honolulu her daily work was 286, 340,
354, 334, 304. 348 and 264 miles, and from
Apia it was 360, 347, 348 and 345 miles.
Gold is rapidly displacing sugar as the
chief staple of British Guiana. From 250
ounces in 1884 the production has increased
to 138,000 ounces. It is obtained chiefly at
present by placer mining.
