Many Valuable Cargoes of Sealskins
From Bering Sea Have Been

The steamer St. Paul sails this morning
for San Pedro and southern ports. She
takes the place of the Coos Bay, which has
been running in lieu of the lost steamer
Los Angeles. On Thursday the St. Paul

into this harbor, fresh from the ship
building works of the Cramps in
Philadelphia. She was constructed for the
Alaska Commercial Company to carry
sealskins from St. Paul Island to San
Francisco. Many a valuable cargo has the
steamer brought into this harbor, and in
the twenty years of her service she has

was a yacht in appearance, and, for those
days, she was an extremely fast traveler.

anything on the Atlantic in point of speed,
comfort.and luxurious appointments.
The local liner has been fitted up in fine

been increased considerably, and the ac

THE DELICATE DESSERTS.
Mrs. Ewing Tells What They
Should Be, and Talks of
San Francisco Is the Cheapest
Place in Which to Live
The closing lesson of Mrs. Emma P.
Ewing's course, given under the auspices
of the Society for the Introduction of
Scientific Cooking in the Kitchen, was
given Wednesday morning in Golden Gate
Hall in the presence of a large number of
ladies, very many of whom were interested
listeners at the lessons previously given.
A feature of the attendance was the nor
mal class of this city, which, under the es
cort of a teacher, entered the hall in a
The lecture was on delicate desserts, and
it was full of interest to those who were
anxious to know how delicious, appetizing
dishes could be prepared.
Before entering upon the mode of mak
ing -these Mr. Ewing stated that he had
just received a Rochester (N. V.) paper
that contained the report of a bread
contest held in that city for prizes,
one of $5 and the other of
$2 50, and that it contained the very grat
ifying announcement that "the first and
second prizes were awarded to two young
ladies who had taken their lessons in
bread making at Mrs. Emma P. Ewing's
This statement was received with mani
festations of approval from all parts of the
The demonstrator said that she had for
ten years felt the public pulse in the mat
ter of household science, and she had
found that the helpers in the kitchen were
not so much to blame for not being able to
prepare food scientifically, because they
did not have places where they could
Then reverting to the subject of her
lecture she said that 'desserts should
be light, delicious and appetizing. The
most barbarous thing she could imagine,
she said, was a dessert of mince pie or a
plum pudding. Mince pie she thought
was good for our ancestors, who could not
luxuriate as we do now and who were so
busy, that they had time only to make
mince pics at one baking to last one month.
The crucial test of the preparation of
food was the flavor. She then exhibited a
mold made of angel cake. "That is what
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1895.
we call this kind of cake," she said, "but
the angels have nicer food than that." This
she filled with fruit, and declared that
such a cake, enough for six, ought not to
cost more than 10 cents.
Reverting to cheap living she said that
she had studied the problem of wholesome
cooking with the best in the land, and
found that a family of four could live well
at a cost of .'> a week, and added that she
never was in a place where people could
live cheaper than in San Francisco.
Mrs. Richter, a member of the class, de
clared at her home they lived on the fat of
the land on $1 60 each per week.
Mrs. Ewing then explained the ; use
of gelatine, and stated that with it
she could make at least forty different
excellent desserts— and showed how fruit
jelly could be converted into pudding and
the pudding into a cream dessert, and that
each might be used as a separate dessert if
desired before mixing.
HOW TO MAKE TEA.
Mrs. Hinckley Explains to Society How It
A score or more of society people, who
have lately become interested in scientific
cooking, gathered in the cooking parlors
of Mrs. Hinckley, 703 Sutter street, Thurs
day. The special feature of the day was a
"Moorish Tea," Mrs. Hinckley giving an
interesting talk on how to make this de
licious beverage. She claims to be the
only person in America who can make
this particular tea successfully, and that
she thinks a great deal of the recipe is
evidenced by the fact that she has had it
Following her own particular style, Mrs.
Hinckley gave an interesting talk on what
constituted good tea, ending up with mak
ing the beverage itself. Among those
who enjoyed the lecture and the tea were :
Mrs. Dr. McNutt, Miss Jennie Blair, Mrs.
Henry L, Dodge, Mrs. H. E. Bothins, Mrs. John
F. Merrill, Mrs. Ernest R. Liliemhal, Mrs. Emily
Walker, Mrs. Walter Newhall, Mrs. Dr. Gibbons,
Mrs. Ed Hopkins. Mrs. M. D. Boruck, Mrs.

After the entertaining talk on tea-making,
Mrs. Hinckley discoursed briefly on cakes
and; biscuits," the intelligent manner in
which she handled the subject plainly
showing that she practically understood
all that she theoretically explained.
LECTUEES AT THE HOSPITAL.
Mrs. Ewing Tells Nurses and Doctors How
Mrs. Ewing delivered two lectures at the
Lane Hospital on Monday and Wednesday
evenings that have deeply interested the
professors and nurses of that institution.
The lessons were given at the suggestion
of the hospital authorities. Professor and
Mrs. Lane being the promoters of the idea,
and in all probability a regular course on
the scientific preparation of food for in
valids will be given at that institution next
The lesson on Monday night was on
broiling poultry, meats, fish and oysters,
and making good corn bread. The lecturer
: showed how to broil a chicken in the oven
I of a -gas-stove, to cook steaks and oysters
j properly on a griddle and the art of baking
I corn-dodgers according to the most scien-
I tific methods.
She said that Mrs. Henderson's assertion
that not one cook in a thousand knew how
to make toast was true in every particular,
as she could testify from her own personal
experience at hotels, restaurants and
boarding-houses. Then, in her pleasing
way, she told just how bread should be
toasted and how the toast should be
At the lecture Wednesday night Mrs.
Ewing showed the class how to boil rice,
to cream codfish and to frizzle beef, so thai
these articles would be appetizing to either
invalids or people in good health.
"Frizzled beef," she said, "is a delicious
dish under all conditions, and this is the
way to frizzle it: Put a tablespoonful of
butter in a spider over a quick fire, and
when hot add a cup of thinly cut dried
beef, from which the rind has been re
moved, and stir constantly with a fork
until it curls and looks cooked. Then re
move the spider to a cooler part of the
stove, sift in a tablespoonful of flour, mix
well with the meat, and then pour in a cup
of milk and stir until the sauce is smooth,
serving on a hot platter."
Each dish when cooked was passed
around, examined and tested by the mem
bers of the class. Dr. and Mrs. Lane
attended both lessons, the latter being so
deeply interested in the subject of better
cookery that she has been a regular at
tendant of Mrs. Ewing's course of lectures
at Golden Gate Hall.
Mrs. Ewing will deliver another lecture
on scientific cookery at Golden Gate Hall.

WIVES HAVE EIGHTS.
Two Cases Where Recreant Spouses
Were Brought to Book.
The Superior Courts are jealous of the
rights of wives to be supported by their
husbands. In two cases yesterday such
right was upheld.
In the case of Gertrude F. Collin vs.
Francis J. Collin, the defendant pleaded
that he was working as a pharmacist for
his father for board and lodging only, and
had no balance to pay alimony to the
plaintiff. But Judge Murphy declared
that the law did not contemplate any such
cheap work by an able-bodied man, and
he therefore adjudged Francis J. Collin
guilty of contempt of court and ordered
him committed into the custody of the
Sheriff until the order of the court that he
pay his wife $25 a month was complied
In the other case W. H. Seaton was in
vited to tell in Judge Hunt's court why he
had not maintained his wife, Alice. He
said he was a relative of C. P. Huntington
and was waiting for a position in the rail
road office. In the _ meantime he was
being supported by his mother, who paid
h's room rent and gave him meal-tickets.
The court decided that as he was able to
pay an attorney to represent him he was
not without means, and ordered him to
pay his wife $35 a month.

[Signed] — .
Dated, . 1895.
Another legal document was completed
Thursday by Attorney Preston and re
ferred to Directors Charles Holbrook and
Robert Watt, who with the attorney con
stitute a committee entrusted by theboard
with its preparation. This is the agree
ment between P. B. Fraser, Sidney Newell,
F. M. West, William Inglisand I. S. Bost
wick, trustees for the donors of lands,
money and rights of way in the city of
Stockton and the county of San Joaquin,
having been selected as such by the Stock
ton Commercial Association, and the San
Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Rail
way Company. It binds the Stockton
Commercial Association to give $100,000,
lands for depots, etc., and rights of way in
Stockton, and a right of way through San
Joaquin County, and in lieu of these con
siderations the railway company binds it
self to build a railway and operate it from
San Francisco through the San' Joaquin
Valley to a point in Kern County, and. to
begin construction within a stated time
yet to be decided on.
The agreement was originally drawn by
a firm of lawyers of Stockton and then pre
sented to the board of directors of the vat
ley road. It was next referred to a com
mittee composed of Watt, Holbrook and
Preston, who made some minor changes,
such as substituting "a point in Kern
County" for "Bakersfield," and something
of the language also. The precaution about
agreeing on Bakersfield as the southern
terminus is obvious. It does not imply
that the directors will not build all the
way to that enterprising city, for the aim
is to get there or as close as possible, and
if at all feasible much closer than
Kern City, the Southern Pacific's station at
that place. But a legal technicality might
arise if the road was not built into Bakers
field which, however, is avoided by the al
The matter will be submitted to the
directors at the next meeting, when the
probabilities are that it will be approved
and signed. All that will then remain is

E. P. Preston and the chief engineer
appeared before the Street Committee of
the Board of Supervisors Thursday and
asked that the company's application for a
franchise from China basin in a general
southerly direction to the county line, near
Baden, be taken under consideration.
Attorney Preston wanted information on
the subject. He requested the committee
to refer the franchise to the City and
County Attorney for his opinion if, accord
ing to a recent act of the Legislature, the
franchise must be put up at auction and
sold to the highest bidder. The Street
Committee granted his request and nothing
further will be done in the premises until
Mr. Creswell submits his opinion.
President Claus Spreckels and Director
Watt of the valley road went to Bakers
field Thursday night to look after the inter
ests of the railway and also of the people
of that section in connection with it.
Chief Engineer Storey stated yesterday
that he was very well pleased "with the
progress made by his men in surveying
the road from Stockton southward to" the
Stanislaus River. He went over the ground
surveyed and got a good idea of the situa
tion in the two days of his absence from
"I found that the engineering party had
moved their camp from Collegeville about
seven miles south, and that they were
working away near the Stanislaus River,
nearly twenty miles below Stockton. They
will probably stay along the river for a day
or two looking for a good crossing. Then
they will return to Stockton and strike
out anew, using the preliminary survey
for a base line. Every house is located on
their survey maps, and on their second
run they will be able to avoid these ob
structions. We have to be careful about a
crossing of the ' Stanislaus River, so that
the current cannot wash out our piers.
When the crossing is decided on then the
surveying party will return to Stockton
and lay out the route toward it.
"The land between Stockton and the
Stanislaus River is all level and most of it
is under water in the winter. The track
will have to be raised on a bank from three
to five feet above the surface of the
Specifications for locomotives have been

A. Albrecht of Fowler wrote to the secre
tary yesterday for a subscription book,
saying he was deeply interested in the
Valley railway enterprise and believed he
can secure a great many subscriptions to
its stock in his district.

FAIR'S TONS OF WHEAT.
What to. Do With the Grain Is What
Is Agitating a Great Many
When is Fair's wheat to be unloaded on
the market? is the question that is agitat
ting grain circles "just now. The 200,000
tons of wheat which is lying in his ware
houses is hanging like the sword of Damo
cles over the heads of local operators, ready
to swamp the market should the court's
order release it. <. _
How to : get rid . of it without ruining
the market is another question, more
easily answered than the first, but rather
difficult to put into execution. It may be
that the immense mass' of grain will be
hauled to the docks and shipped out of the
country, or be taken overland in a lump
and distributed from the Mississippi east
and to Europe. Indications point to the
fact that it will he shipped off somehow
and somewhere, however, for as it is now it
is a nuisance to farmer and speculator
alike, and the general belief is, the sooner
it is out of the way, the better.

Three Horses Run Away.
Walter Morosco's magnificent team of
three blooded horses which he drives tan
dem hitched to a big Brewster cart did a
circus turn of their own Thursday after
noon that excited a great deal of interest
on Golden Gate avenue. Mr. Morosco has
driven his team in and around the con
course at the park on Sundays when it was
crowded with vehicles and never met with
an accident. But the driver of a one-horse
delivery wagon was the Wellington who
accomplished his overthrow, or rather tip
Mr. Morosco was returning from" the
park when the man with the delivery
wagon turned into Golden Gate avenue,
then changed his mind and his course
with the result that he ran against the
wheeler of the tandem, throwing the horse
against the curb. The animal tripped and
fell heavily, breaking both shafts near the
cart and throwing Mr. Morosco, his com
panion and the "tiger" into the street.
Frightened by the noise the spirited
animals dashed down the street, keeping
in perfect order. Finally the swing horse
slipped on a dragging line and the leader
was pulled to the ground. The other two
passed on and passing the leader jerked
him to his feet by the traces, when with
two bounds he was "in the lead again.
The horses turned at Van Ness avenue
and at Turk* street found their progress
barred by a long hay wagon. There the
leader broke away and ran to the stable
and the other horses were captured.
FOR A SHARE OF STOCK
How the Caledonian Club
Helps Along the Valley
Offers Its Stock as a Prize for the
Coming- Annual Tug
The Caledonian. Club has found a new
way to boom the San Francisco and San
Joaquin Valley Railroad. At last night's
meeting the committee arranging lor the
annual games at Shell Mound Park on May
30 conceived the happy idea of offering as
a first prize for the great tug-of-war con
test, which is usually the most exciting
feature of the celebration, a share of stock.
As the par value of a share is $100, it can
be easily divided among the ten men com
posing the winning team.
It looks, too, as if the Irish would accept
the tug-of-war challenge of the Scotch.

\ Athletic Association can easily pick out
i ten good pullers. The Scotch team will
have for its captain Thomas D. Carroll, a

Annulled the Marriage.
Judge Murphy heard the representations of
Annie and Conrad Scholtz, who were eager for
a divorce but later agreed to have their mar
riage annulled on the discovery of the exist
ence of a former husband of Annie. After
listening to the testimony of Mrs. Scholtz,
Sophie Dorgulh, John A. Phelps and Conrad
Scholtz, the court ordered the petition for
divorce denied and the marriage of the parties
annulled. Defendant Scholtz admitted that he
had seen the first husband alive six months
after his contract marriage to the plaintiff.

provide half that amount for their appearance.
Greenwald has already made arrangements to
provide the bond required, and will spend to
morrow in the bosom of his family. Sullivan
will never be tried, as the Government will use
him as State's evidence. .'.'""

The San Francisco play - going public
will witness something next Wednesday
night at the Standard Theater that is
novel, if nothing more. The event is
the professional debut of &- mother, son

comedy entitled -'Caste." The play will
be presented by . the pupils of Belasco 's

ing the most prominent roles.

known as Janet Mac Donald, and for whose
benefit the performance is given, is par
ticularly well known in the business world
of San Francisco, having at different
times acted as manager of agents for three
of the best-known book-publishing firms
on the coast. Her advent iri the theatrical
world has created widespread surprise
among her friends, whose name is legion,
and has also met with general approbation,
for her natural dramatic ability has long
been recognized and appreciated by those
who know her best.
There is another lady in the cast who is
likely to attract more than ordinary atten
tion on the stage whenever she sees proper
to accept an engagement. This lady is
down on the bill as "Louise Douglass," but
her friends know her as Mrs. Meily. On
the death of her husband some months
ago Mrs. Meily, formerly Miss Hasken,
found it necessary to work for a livelihood
and determined to adopt the stage. Two
months ago she began studying with Bel
asco, and that she possesses marked ability
is evinced by the fact that her tutor
thinks she is sufficiently strong to play a
leading role. The cast is made up as fol

Ex-Judge S. I». Thompson Captures an
Intruder in His Room.
Ex-Judge S. I). Thompson was awakened
from a sound slumber in his room in the
Russ House Thursday night by a slight
noise in the direction of his bureau. He was
taking a nap on a lounge in a corner pre
paratory to retiring for the night, and as
he raised himself on his elbow he could
see nothing. Mr. Thompson was a police
man back in Memphis, ! Term., in his
youth, however, and his early training
prompted him to investigate. He saw a
man trying to rifle his bureau, and as he
sprang from the lounge to give chase the
man went out of the door on the run, with
the Judge a good second. Before the lar
cenist had reached the stairs the ancient
jurist caught him, and he held him until
the patrol wagon was rung up and the
police arrived. The man was hooked at
the old City Hall for burglary. He gave
the name of William Harris. " He had not
time to secure any of Mr. Thompson's
