THE BAY DISTRICT RACES

A very cruel hoax was perpetrated on race
goers at the track yesterday, a tip going the
rounds that Minnie Beach was a "good thing"
for the second race.
Tired of Tod Sloane's watch-me-beat-the-flaß
tactics and after using more forbearance than
any other starter in the country, Merrill yes
terday set Sloane down indefinitely. By this
action Merrill no doubt misses the opportunity
of being presented with a silken starter's flag.
The game at the Bay District is shortly to be
re-enforced by a fresh invoice of running ma
terial from the East— a muchly needed want.
Private advices state that D. A. Honig, the St.
Louis horseman, has started for California with
a string of fourteen racehorses and two clever
light-weight jockeys, Ross and Garner.
Looking over a small but select stable's
statement from the Jockey Club, one that had
met with more than the ordinary amount of
success in winning races, It was very plain why
co many of the horsemen at the track are af
flicted with that, contagious disease— shortness
of cash. The horses of this particular stable
had earned during the month of April and May
f-ometlriniß: over $2100, yet entrance money,
declarations and ' 'run-ups" had so eaten into
this amount that all the disgusted owner had
due him was about one-third of the amount
won. And yet racing at the Bay District is
cracked up as nature's haven for the poor
owner. Well, to see the large number of them
touting does lend tins fact color.
One man was lucky and a whole lot of
people were unlucky at the track yester
day. This one particular man was Billy
Donathan, the owner of Arnette. After
Mr. Jingle had beaten his filly out a good
nose, which fact was coincided in by Mr.
Donathan, who stood next to the judges'
stand, he had the pleasure of seeing the
game Midlothian filly's number run up
over Mr. Jingle's. With any sort of a rider
the Arizona stable's horse would have won
by a block, and they can blame the loss of
the race to Chevalier's bungling work in
The event was a mile and seventy-yard
handicap, with five entries. McLight,
with Weber up, was a well-backed 7 to 5
favorite, Arnette having second call, with
Mr. Jingle third in demand. It was a good
t citing affair, all of the starters receiving
more or less support.
When Merrill dropped his flag the light
weighted Centurion went to the front, ?et
ting a merry clip. Passing the half he
had a lead of two lengths with Arnette
and little Cripple heads apart •behind him.
Turning into the stretch Little Cripple was
in front, to all appearances simply gallop
ing. A furlong from home Arnette and
Mr. Jingle had Cripple beaten, and raced
it out between them to the wire. To all
appearances Mr. Jingle won cleverly by a
pood nose, but Arnette was given the race.
Little Cripple finished a good third. The
decision did not meet the approval of all,
for a large crowd collected around the
stand and hooted the decision.
The two-year-olds opened the card with
a five and a haif furlong dash, and the
iinish stamps Her Majesty, the handsome
daughter of imp. True Briton, as a clinking
good filly. She went to the post equal
favorite in the betting with Instigator.
Walcott, a sturdy looking son of the dead
Peel, was strongly fancied with 16 to 5
Her Majesty headed the field from the
drop of the flag, and looked to be winning
easily, until less than an eighth from home.
Weber brought Walcott from behind with
a rush, and in a hard drive just missed
watching victory by a nose. Instigator,
who would not run the first part of the
trip, was a fair third.
Backed from 8 to 5 to 6 to 5 and evens,
Crawford beat the poor lot opposed to him
in the second race, a seven-furlong run, and
won by four lengths. Seaside, the second
choice, landed in the place, about the same
distance in front of Mero.
With but 112 pounds on his back the
bookies certainly looked overgenerous
when they laid 7 to 10 against Tim Mur
phy winning the third number on the
card, a five and ah alf furlong jaunt. My
ron was expected to cut a wide swath, aiid
so was Joe Cotton, but it was apparently
not their day.
Getting away third to a rather ragged
start the old roan sprinter took the lead
and galloped in front until the last six
teenth, when he had to put forth an effort
to stall off Banjo, a 25 to 1 shot, who got
away from the post last, and was beaten
but a length. Carmel showed a surprising
burst of speed at the end, finishing a fair
At last the suiting Alexis appears to I
have struck a game to his liking, for at 6
to 1 in the betting, ridden by Clancy, he
led the whole distance in the steeplechace
and won easily a length in front of Espe
rance. Longwell, equal choice at V/ to 1
with Mutineer, was third. Mulhoi.laxd.

ALL WANT MANUFACTURES
Boards of Trade and State
Officials Anxious to
Arrangements to Be Made for a
Grand Rally In San Francisco
on June 20.
From all over the State Boards of Trade
are sending word to the Manufacturers'
Association of their willingness to co-op
erate in the work of encouraging Califor
nian industries. The directors of the asso
ciation met Tuesday night at their rooms in
the Mills building. Communications were
read from Oakland and Los Angeles and
arrangements were made to begin the es
tablishing of branch organizations there
to work in harmony with the association.
The Oakland Board of Trade decided to
begin its work of organizing by a big
meeting, to be held at the Council cham
ber of the Oakland City Hall on Tuesday,
June 11, at 8 p. m.
To this they have invited the members
of the Manufacturers' Association, who
they expect will address the meeting.
They have prepared a circular letter which
they addressed to the merchants and
manufacturers of Oakland, inviting them
to be present and aid in the good work.
Julian Sonntag, Oscar Lewis and Hugh
Craig were selected to address the Oakland
meeting. It was also decided to attempt
to have a large number of members of toe
association attend in a body.
A letter from the Los Angeles Board of
Trade expressed thorough sympathy with
the objects ot the association and a desire
to co-operate. A. Jacoby, the president of
the southern organization, requested that
a committee be sent to Los Angeles to ex
plain more fully the results to be accom
plished and the best methods of working.
The letter said that a special meeting of
the Board of Trade would be called at any
time and place most convenient for the
representatives from San Francisco who
might visit them. The matter was
left in the hands of the executive
committee with power to act. Much
pleasure was shown at the sentiment
expressed by the Los Angeles body, and a
special committee will be sent to visit the
The efforts of the association to have
California products used in State institu
tions wherever it is practicable have been
well received at every turn. A vote of
thanks was tendered Governor Budd for
the sentiment expressed in his letter of
The only State institution heard from so
far is the Asylum for the Deaf, Dumb and
Blind at Berkeley. Its principal, W. Wil
kinson, wrote the association on June 3, as
In answer to your letter to the board of trus
tees of this institution, I beg to say that most
of our supplies are purchased in open market,
but that it is always my endeavor to purchase
articles of California manufacture. I sympa
thize most heartily with the purpose ot your
association, and assure you of the co-operation
of the management of this institution.
Ernest D. Clapp of Upton, Mass., a
manufacturer of straw hats, wanted in
formation as to the advisability of bring
ing capital to San Francisco for opening
up a factory. Louis Saroni, the candy
manufacturer, wrote that ne had found
California starch to be "highly successful
and satisfactory," and had placed an order
for 20,000 pounds of it. This, ne said,
would be the first carload lot of the starch
that had ever been sold here.
The oil-bearing lands in Oakland are to
be investigated by the association on
Thursday By a committee consisting of A.
McLaughhn, L. Biankenhorn, J. w. Kerr
and Constant Meese.
J. Mills Davies of Los Angeles and P. D.
Code resigned from the board of directors
because of inability to perform their du
ties. M. J. Keller was named for one of
the vacant places.
It was decided to hold frequent mass
meetings in order to educate the people to
the necessity of concerted action. The
first one will be held June 20. A commit
tee consisting of Messrs. Sonntag, Mc-
Laughlin, Bowers, Mead, Currier and Mc-
Glynn was appointed to make all necessary
The meeting was then adjourned, but
reconvened for a few minutes in order to
make the Call and the other journals and
newspapers that have been working with
the association active members of it.
Jack McAuliffe Challenged.
NEW YORK, N. V., June 5.-Sam Fitz

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1895.

Corbett and Fitzsimmons Say
They Expect to Fight
LANKY BOS IS CONFIDENT.
Says He Intends to Show the
Champion That He Is In
NEW YORK, N. V., June s.— The pro
posed Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight remains
the topic of discussion among sporting
men here. Manager Brady said to-night
that he was perfectly satisfied with the
arrangements made by the Dallas people,
and that his man would be in the ring fit
and ready on the day to be fixed later in
October by the Dallas people. An Asso
ciated Press reporter called on Fitzsim
mons at his residence to-night. In re
sponse to a number of questions he said:
"I feel perfectly satisfied that the con
test will take place at Dallas, as the busi
ness men, through their representative,
seem to be on the level.
"There must have been some remarks
questioning my sincerity in the affair and
some persons have been unkind enough to
say I will weaken. I can assure you and
the public as well that I am just as ready
to meet Corbett as 1 would be to meet an
inferior in the ring. Corbett, I believe,
has said I was not in his class, but if
Charley Mitchell was, then I certainly
must be, and I cannot see where I could
possibly be left out. Depend upon my
word, Mr. Corbett has a big contract on
his hands, and when he meets me he will
tackle a better man than he has ever met
"Give me a fair, trustworthy referee and
I have no doubt that I shall prove myself
the better man. It is just possible that 1
may weigh twenty pounds lighter than
Corbett, but I can easily make up for that
and our relative weights may be 168 and
DALLAS, Tex., June 5. — In sporting
circles the opinion is generally expressed
that Coibett will do the bulk of his train
ing at Asbury Park, N. J., while Fitzsim
mons will train at Galveston. P. T. Rob
erts says: "It will be the most important
event in the history of Dallas. The total
crop of Dallas County last year, according
to the Assessor's report, aggregated $1,929,
--447. This glove contest will be worth more
to Dallas from a dollar-and-cent stand
point than the entire agricultural product
of the county for 1894. An amphitheater
will be built with a seating capacity of 50,
--000. The general plan will be after the
great Chicago wigwam for the Democratic
convention for 1892, but fully one-fourth
larger and roofless."

MR. MOULDER IS PLEASED
He Will Organize the Teachers'
Pension Fund at
The Law's Faults May Be Corrected
by the Next Legis
Superintendent Moulder, acting with his
customary promptness, yesterday had the
clerk of the board send out the following
circular, explains itself:
To the Principals— Ladies and Gentlemen: I
have this day received the following reply from
City and County Attorney Harry T. Creswell to
a communication addressed to him by me, re
questing his opinion as to the intent arid mean
ing of the so-called "pension law."
This is to notify you that the Superintendent
accepts this interpretation and will act in con
formity with it hereafter.
Please notify your teachers of the contents of
the accompanying opinion, and say to them
further, that those who desire to avail them
selves of the benefits of the "pension law"
zhould file with the Superintendent and with
the secretary and with the Treasurer legal no
tice that effect without delay.
Andrew J. Moulder,
Superintendent of Common Schools.
To this is attached the opinion of the
City and County Attorney, as published in
"I am very much pleased with the writ
ten opinion of City and County Attorney
Creswell," he said yesterday. "It is a
clear and lucid interpretation of what
must certainly be the intent of this very
cloudy and ambiguous piece of legislation.
As I declare in my circular to the princi
pals I shall accept and act upon it. By
the rejection of the word 'and' the City
and County Attorney makes sense out of
what was nonsense. It is fortunate that
the opinion has come to hand in time to
permit of my communicating with the
teachers through the principals before the
closing of school.
"It is important that those of them who
desire to avail themselves of the benefits of
the law shall file notice of the fact without
delay, for many reasons. In the first place
very many teachers— about 200— have al
ready given such notice, and immediately
upon the opinion of the City and County
Attorney being made known very many
more would sign voluntarily. The law,
among its many other faults, has fixed no
time under which the teacher must sub
scribe to its conditions in order to enjoy
its benefits. Those who wanted to be
mean about it could, if the law remained
as it is, wait until the eleventh hour, until
they had been in the service for twenty or
twenty-five years and stand in fear of be
ing retired for incapacity and then .turning
in the 1 per cent of their salary just once,
retire with the pension.
"Of course," continued the Superintend
ent, "these faults of the law will be cor
rected, doubtless at the next sitting of the
Legislature, but it is important that the
teachers who desire at any time to avail
themselves of this law shall come in at
once, so that the best possible showing
may be made before the law-makers. In
these two years pending their sitting, it is
not likely that the Annuity Commission,
as it is called— composed of the Mayor, the
Superintendent and the County Treasurer
—will place anybody on the retired pension
list, one reason being that there will be no
fund in that time.
•■But we want to recognize this Jaw and
have it in practical working order with
some tangible results, such as will warrant
us in going before the next Legislature and
asking it to put the law in more practical
"So earnest were many of the teachers
m their desire to put this thing to the test
that they were considering the idea of
starting it on a private basis on the lines
as far as possible as indicated by the Jaw,
in case the law were declared inoperative,
and with the results of this going to the
next Legislature with the promise of turn
ing the funds so raised over to the Treas
urer in case a legal law, so to speak, were
enacted. I am glad to say this will not
now be necessary, and we will go ahead
under the law as interpreted by the City
and County Attorney "

how heat is transmitted in the air cur

new illurainant called asceteline gas,
which he declared was the first time it
had been shown on this coast. The flame
was much whiter than that of ordinary
gas and four times more powerful. It has

venerable Father Maraschi, one of the
pioneer teachers in the college. He spoke
of the advance of education, and said that

AN AOTEESS IN 00UBT.
Carrie Clark Warde Commences Suit
The news that Carrie Clark Warde is
suing for a divorce from her husband,
James M. Warde, has considerably sur
prised friends I and acquaintances of the
couple in this City, for to casual observers
they * have always passed as a devoted
couple. .-;.:\ 4 '■su.^.-'i-.'i."-*^' ■ ■■ :■ '-
People who have traveled in their com
panies, however, and intimate friends have
been aware for some time that the Wardes
had frequent disputes, and they say , that
if Mrs. Warde had not applied for a divorce
her husband would have done so.
It is alleged in the complaint that James
is in the habit of using , cruel and abusive
language to his wife, and in discussing the
application for divorce in the foyers of the
theaters last night, many people remem
ber instances that x went to prove that
Warde is haughty and overbearing. "l\ "<
