Mr. Udell and the leacue have gone on
record as protesting against the forcing of
Congressman Joseph C. Sibley's candida
ture upon the bimetallists for President for
next year's campaign. This may explain
the reason for the circuiation of General
Warner's utterances. The dispatch also
states that Udell had threatened to de
nounce General Warner and the Sibley
movement generally. In reply, Udell
stated yesterday :
I made no such threat, I simply told Warner
what our probable action would be. Our party
organized in December last, and Warner put
up a scheme to capture the movement by
holding a self-constituted caucus in February,
and has declared himself dictator, by what
right^re cannot discover. We hold his letter
dated the 6th of April, asking us to recognize
his committee as the head of the movement,
and requesting our committee to act as the
State executive committee -for California. We
protested against his forcing Mr. Sibley upon us,
and forthwith he tried by insane and con
temptible methods to destroy us and build up
a movement of his own.
By resolutions sprung at a meeting at San
Francisco, he asked Governor Budd to disor
ganize the Democratic party that honored
Budd with the Governorship, in a vain effort to
get the Governor committed to the Sibley
movement. Failing to so gaiii his point, he
now denounces us as cranks and anarchists, as
every gold bug cuckoo ana corporation hireling
names every person who criticizes dishonest
methods. Our report and resolutions speak for
themselves, and brand his epithets as a tissue
oi falsehoods. We deal with principles, and
not with men.
We speak well of Mr. Sibley. but Warner is
beneath our official notice. When he resorts
to personal abuse of men whose co-operation
he has solicited, he brands himself as a failure
in the conduct of the National campaign. No
man is safe who follows euch a leader.
VARLEY WAS VIGOROUS.
Some Strong Things Said by the Re
vivalist at Central Methodist
The English revivalist, Rev. Henry Var
ley, said some things at the Central
Methodist Episcopal Church, on Mission
street, last night that fell like sledge-ham
mer blows upon the big audience that
filled all the available space there.
Three "religious sinners" he chose to
illustrate the evil of the disobedience and
that of rejecting the means of grace offered
to transgressors. These "were Cam, who
murdered his brother because Abel's sacri
fice of a slain lamb was accepted and his
offering of the fruits of the earth was not;
Balaam, the venal prophet, who "was will
ing to sell his people, Israel, for gold,"
and Korah, the presumptuous demagogue,
who considered himself just as good as
Moses. He alluded to the sin of disobedi
ence in the following vigorous manner:

your land. Why, the general sentiment
seems to be 'Oh, let the law slide along.'
If I were a despot here for a little while I'd
talk to you about letting the law slide.
'Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man
shall his blood be shed.' Yet there have
been committed 9800 murders in your mag
nificent country within the last twelve
months and the law is still suffered to
"In the nature of things disobedience
can never be accepted. I declare, if I had
employes and tney would disobey, I would
'sacfc' every one of them.
"We read that Cain was wroth and his
countenance fell. Now, we have a saying
in England that just fits that. It is that
'there was a screw loose' somewhere about
Cain. 'Conscience makes cowards of
us all,' and that was what made Cain's
countenance fall, because an innocent
person can always look an accuser straight
in the eye. Yet God offered to Cain a
means of acceptance. It was, 'If thou
doest well thou shalt be accepted ; if thou
doest not well sin lieth at the door.' So
every one that does well shall be accepted —
that is, if he lives a perfect life, without
sin from cradle to grave. But who does
that? Hence the necessity of the sacrifice
of the 'lamb slain from the foundation of
the world.' "
Mr. Varley announced that he would
lecture next Sunday afternoon at the
Young Men's Christian Association on
"God's History of the Devil." "The
devil," said Mr. Varley, "was originally
the son of Wisdom and Beauty."
A meeting of delegates from the lodges of the
A. O. U. W. in this City and Oakland, met at
at Shiels building last Thursday evening to
consider Ihe advisability of holding a grandre
union of the order in the near future. It was
decided to hold such a reunion and commit
tees were appointed to visit those bodies not
represented to get them to take part. A com
mittee on grounds and transportation was ap
pointed to report back at the meeting to be
held next Thursday evening, when it is ex

membership of the order is about 6000 in this

FAMINE THREATENS IT
The City and County Hospital
Is Now a Helpless
SUPPLIES ABE NEARLY GONE.
Dr. Titus Received a Small Supply
of Medicines, but Food Is
Dr. Titus, Superintendent of the City
and County Hospital, has not appealed to
the public in vain. Yesterday he received
$10 worth of drug? in response to an appeal
made by him through the press. The
drugs received were just enough to last
through the day. They were given by
Root & Co., 04 Howard street, and were
assorted with skill.
But medicines and materials for banda
ges are not the only things that Dr. Titus
needs for the care of his many patients.
After next Wednesday, if the Supreme
Court does not decide the question of tax
levy in accordance with the needs of the
City, there will be a very light diet in the
City and County Hospital.
"I have made provision for meat until
next Wednesday," said Dr. Titus yester
day, "but what can happen after that is
something beyond my ability to say. I
made arrangements to-day with " the
butcher who provides us with mutton to
bring in his usual semi-weekly supply.
This will run us fairly well until Wednes
day night. If the Supreme Court does not
act favorably in our case before that time
we will have no meat for Thursday."
"In what condition is your other stores ?"
"They are in a very precarious condi
tion," was the reply. "We have flour
enough to last until the end of this month,
but in the other lines of groceries we have
not enough to last this week. As I have
already stated, if the Supreme Court does
r>ot give us relief we will be in a state of
famine unless the public comes forward
and helps us out in a substantial manner.
It does no good to recieve odds and ends of
merchandise unless there is slme system
about it. I have been informed to-day by
certain dealers in drugs and surgical "sup
plies that I can call on them for certain
foods in that line, but medicines and
andages do not fill all the wants of a
Hospital. The patients must be fed as well
as medically treated and I don't see how it
is going to be done if all our supplies are
cut off, as they certainly will be within a
"If the public of this City knew the true
state of affairs there would be no danger of
any patient in this hospital suffering for
the necessaries of life. I am sure that
donations of cash would come in abun
dantly. And ready cash is the only prac
tical way of tiding over this difficulty.
There are so many things needed— not in
great quantities, but in variety — that one
contractor cannot supply the demand even
if he were so disposed. * I would suggest
that the Call Business office be made a
sort of repository for cash donations, and
that the Call acknowledge receipts from
day to day. In that way the donors and
the public would know exactly what was
done for the City's sick and poor."

Scheel would direct, the musicians as
usual, but the audience was* surprised to
note his absence and to see A. Spadini
wield the baton. What they missed in the
absence of Herr Scheel was made up in
tne programme of popular selections pre
sented. Herr Scheel had made up his
mind to go to Los Angeles before the
selection of numbers had been decided
upon, so it fell to Mr. Spadini to select
them. The manner in which every num

encore after each testified to the wisdom

The entire Hawaiian band was for a
time in the audience and pave vent to its
approval of several numbers by loud clap
ping of hands. A solo from the" Bohemian
Girl," by Walter Colverd, on the euphon

While it cannot be denied that Herr Scheel
presented some exquisite music that was
faultlessly performed, the comments
heard on all sides yesterday established
the fact that the programme presented
was better calculated to please those of
simple tastes who go to listen to the
The young man who wears long hair,

great skill and was watched with interest.
He seemed to enjoy the attention he was
attracting until some one in the crowd
called out, "Johnny, get your hair cut."
Then a scowl came across his somewhat
feminine features and assuming the ordi
nary position on his wheel he rode away.

to the grand court, but how it will be ar

not yet been determined.

A BAND ON HIS BILL.
The Big Pelican at the Park Was the
Only Performer, Tet the Crowd
Several hundred people were intensely
amused yesterday afternoon at the queer
antics of the usually dignified pelican who
swims around in Stow Lake at Golden Gate
Park. Of course, a small boy was at the
bottom of it and the bird is undoubtedly
still wondering how it all happened.
The pelican s enormous Dill with its
membraneous sack has made the bird an
object of more than ordinary interest to
visitors. So much bread was thrown to it
for the sake of seeing the big bill open and
close that the pelican grew quite tame and
yesterday it swam up to take a piece of
bread from the hand of a small boy on the
The youngster had a rubber band in his
band. This he slipped over the big bird's
bill. The pelican at once felt something
decidedly unusual had happened. He
tried to shake the band off.
The band didn't move; then the bird
opened its bill, but as it gave its head an
impatient shake the muscles relaxed.
"Snap," the rubber band got in its work
and the mandibles came together with a
noise like the slapping of slats.
The big bird looked surprised. Its round
eyes were focused on its bill, which it
again essayed to open. But the rubber
band, being near the end, had too great a
leverage and the mandibles could get sep
arated four or live inches only to audibly
A most amusing struggle ensued. The
bird's bill opened only to snap shut.
Each time the pelican was more surprised
than before. It tried to rub the band off
on its back. Then it stuck its bill under
water and in the mud. Still the band
Then the unhappy fowl made for the
land. As it walked it lifted its big, broad
feet unnaturally high, and after going a
short distance brought its right foot down
on its left. Then it couldn't pick the left
The ungainly bird, with its big bill stuck
heavenwards, teetered for a while and then
lost its balance and fell over. This re
leased the foot and the pelican started for
the water, where it continued to struggle
with the tenacious band while the crowd
fairly shrieked its applause.

TO BE A PUPIL OF YSAYE
Miss Cora Feder the Only
Woman So Honored in
SHE WILL GO TO BRUSSELS.
The Great Master Says She Will
Astonish the World in a
Ysaye, the famous violinist, has honored
San Francisco above all other cities in the
United States by selecting from its people
a musician worthy the distinction of being
made his protege.
The violinist who was so fortunate as to
please him is Miss Cora Feder, daughter of
Samuel Feder of the firm of Rosenthal,
Feder & Co. She called with her mother
Miss Cora Feder, Who Is to Be Ysaye's
[From a photograph.]
on the great violinist, at his apartments in
the Baldwin Hotel, last Friday afternoon.
They were courteously received, and at
their host's request Miss Feder played
Mendelssohn's "Concerto." Ysaye became
enraptured over the performance and pro
nounced it as fine in execution as he had
ever heard from as young a performer.
He accompanied Miss Feder on the
piano, and when the piece was finished he,
with that impetuosity common to genius,
insisted that the young lady accompany
him back to Brussels and become a cele
He characterized her playing as sublime.
It had the fire and soul of genius.
Mrs. Feder had long since made plans
for haying her daughter finish her musical
education in Berlin, but such an offer from
the great Ysaye was not to be overlooked.
He-said he would place Miss Feder directly
under the chaperonage of his wife, and
that she should receive one lesson a week
On learning that N. Landsberger had
been Miss Feder's local instructor, Ysaye
immediately called on the former, and the
two spent some time in discussing the rare
ability of the young pupil. He also pre
sented Mr. Landsberger with a handsome
souvenir, somewhat similar to that which
Miss Feder received from him. The latter
is a pen-and-ink sketch, in a dainty frame,
of the first bar of Mendelssohn's "Con
certo," with an autograph sentence from
the writer in French.
Miss Feder and her family are honored
and delighted by the high compliment
paid her skill as a violinist, as well as by
the rare opportunity offered for the perfec
tion of her musical education under such
"I will make you a grand performer,"
said Ysaye. "You shall bo my especial
pupil, and in a few years you will astonish
Therefore Miss Feder will study for the
stage— that is, not in the accepted sense of
the term, but with motives of a purely
artistic nature. She will go to Brussels in
stead of Berlin, and become a favorite and
special pupil of the great master.
Misses Grace and Adaline Feder are to
graduate from the medical department of
the State University in July, and it is the
plan of their parents as modified that they
shall accompany Miss Cora to Brussels.
They wili probably leave for Europe the
first of August.
Miss Cora Feder is 19 years of age and is
at present a pupil of the High School.
Besides being a musician of unusual abil
ity she possesses rare talents. She has
painted a number of fine pieces, among
them being one in full length of herself
with her favorite instrument in her hands,
which has been complimented in the
highest terms by local artists.
Peter and the Keys.
Bey. F. L. Higgins delivered a sermon yester
day morning at the Swedenborgian Church on
O'Farrell street, near Webster, from a text In
Matthew xvi:ls-19, which speaks of Peter and
the rock on which Christ would build his
church, and where the Lord said to Peter, "I
will give unto thee the keys of thekingdom
of heaven, and whatsoever tnou shalt bind on
earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatso
ever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in
heaven." It was the evil in himself, which if
Peter bound it on earth would be bound in
heaven, and the good affections, which if loosed
on earth should be loosed in heaven, for the
earth means the natural degree of man's mind,
while heaven means the spiritual degree.
The binding of the evil in the work of regen
eration is in fact the loosing of the spiritual,
and vice versa.
