Joe X, winner of the two-year-old race, was
struck and severely cut en onfi of his hind legs
at some period of tie run.
After a couple of days' outing in San Jose,
John Merrell. looking in greatly improved
health, again occupied the starter's box and
sent the fields away to very pretty starts.
While at the post in the first race Amigo,
the second choice, received a severe kick in the
stomach from Josie G, which It is thought may
have affected that horse's speed. It was light
in comparison with the kick his backers made.
The sale of thoroughbreds belonging to the
eEtate of the late H. C. Judson will be held by
Klllip A Co. at the Wildidle stock farm, one
mile west of Santa Clara, on June 19. Among
the lot are youngsters, the get of such sires as
Wildidle, Vanquish and Vanguard.
The performance of Royal Flush, the stoutly
built little chestnut son of Three Cheers, in
the last race is deserving of more than passing
notice. Lying until the stretch was reached,
he came on with his 114 pounds up and passed
the finishing post with noticeable effort in
I :o7>a for the five and a half furlongs.
During the drive through the stretch be
tween Don Cmsar and Norblieh in the second
race the first-named horse, ridden by K. Jones,
bore in on Norblieh the entire route, wnich un
doubtedly caused his defeat. Jones had the
outside, and the judges thinking he did not
ta«e any especial pains to keep his horse
straight fined him $25. He escaped luckily.

which are Bob Tucker, Adam, Satisfied, Fred

the way to California, having left Latonia for
the West via Chicago, and will arrive in about
ten days. Frank Kevane, the popular turf
man, is en route, end will occupy the position
of cashier in the new book. Mr. Jones states
that M. T. Donovan, a well-known ■Western
horseman, expects to start for California in a
short time with a good string of thorough
The opening race yesterday -was notable
inasmuch as it signaled the reappearance
on the California turf of the all green
colors of B. C. Holly. The old sprinter,
Melanie, purchased at the sale of Tom
Ryan's horses, sported them, and won
hands down from a very ordinary field,
starting an odds-on favorite. Mr. Holly,
who had been in ill health, disposed of the
majority of his horses some time back,
and announced his retirement from the
turf, but the hankering after his first love
proved too strong, and he has again shied
his castor into the ring.
The card had a cheap look, and in con
sequence the attendance was lipht, only an
occasional rush preventing the bookies
from in a quiet slumber. The
talen^ received their usual bumping, two
only of the five favorites managing to
finish in front, the other races going to
horses backed by people wiser than those
that s;ick to form.
The opening race at five furlongs was
taken easily by Melanie, who finished un
der restraint a half length in front of Josie
G, with Mt. Carlos in third place.
A mile selling race furnished a hot fa
vorite in Sir Reel, backed from 6to sto 4
to 5. Don Ceesar and Normandie were sec
ond and third choices respectively.
Going to. the front soon after the start,
Normandie led the favorite into the stretch
a head, with Norblieh and Don Caesar rap
idly closing on them. Soon drawing up on
equal terms the latter two horees drew
away, and in a hot drive Jones landed Don
Caesar winner by a head. Sir Reel was
third a couple of lengths away.
The half-mile dash for maiden two-year
olds was originally looked upon as a good
thing for Lady Gray, who has been run
ning well up in company, but the wise
money said Joe X was the proper thinec,
and he went into the starter's hands a
slight favorite over the Lady.
Bent away to a pretty start Charlie Boots,
Lady Gray, Dancine Girl and Joe X en
tered the stretch on nearly equal terms.
Joe X then began to draw away, winning
easily at the end by four lengths. Don
Pedro at 15 to 1, coming with a rush, beat
Lady Gray by a long neck for the place.
That strealt of forked lightning, Fly, was
a decidedly hot choice for the fourth race,
a five-furlong dash. 1 to 2 being his closing
price, but, after leading well into the
stretch, Hueneme, the second choice, col
lared and beat him out easily in 1:01.
Nellie G took third money.
A speedy lot of eprinters lined np in the
last event at eleven-sixteenths. From his
opening price of threes Hymn was backed
down to a9to 5 favorite. Howard, Royal
Flush and Monterey all had 5 to 1 against
their chances at some stage of the betting.
Nelson, Blue Bell and old Rinfax were the
ontsiders, the latter a 85 to 1 chance.
To a good start, Hymn immediately
showed in front, followed by Blue Bell,
the two racing heads apart at the end or
the first furlong. The pace was too hot
for Blue Bell and she gave up second
place to NeLson, the one-eyed horse being
but a head back of the favorite turning
into the stretch, with Royal Flush a very
promising-looking third. Below the eighth
pole Hymn was beaten, and, taking the
lead on the outside, Royal Flush passed
the finishing post the cleverest of winners,
two lengths before Rinfax, who finished
strong, nipping the place from Nelson by a

THE GOVERNOR CAN FISH.
He Kasily Landed Four- Pound Trout
■With a Six - Ounce
A gentleman named Wilson, -who has
been spending bis vacation at Klainath
Springs, speaks very highly of Governor
Budd's angling proclivities. In speaking
of the excellent sport that is now to be
had in the Klamath River and Shovel
Creek and the methods that are employed
in angling by men and women who take
pleasure in catching fish he states that
with few exceptions those who angle for
trout use very common poles and heavy
"The Governor and two or three other
gentlemen who were rusticating at the
mountain resort," said Mr. Wilson, "as
tonished the tyros in fishing by the very
clever and dexterous way in which they
hooked, played and landed large trout.
Their rods did not weigh more than six
or seven ounces and so far as the tackle
was concerned it was as fine as the hair of
a woman's head.
**I think the Governor a most expert
angler. His right arm was almost par
alyzed by rheumatism, and as a conse
quence he wa9 compelled to bring his left
hand into service when casting. It was a
revelation to me to see him make some
beautiful casts in the Klamath at the con
fluence of Shovel Creek, where rainbow
trout ranging from Half a poun dto three
and four pounds are quite plentiful. I
cannot understand why it is, but the rain
bow trout in the Klamath are not by any
means to be compared — that is as "fight
ers—with the same variety of fish taKen
from the Truckee and otherrivers in which
they have been planted. I have been in
formed, however, that at this season of the
year the rainbows of the Klamath are on
the move to their spawning beds, and that
in the month of July hundreds of those
fishes congregate in the Klamath River,
where the smaller streams empty, and are
then easily taken by means of flies and
spoon. I found that" the fishing for East
ern trout in Shovel Creek is more interest
ing than catching big rainbows in the
"KEEP TO THE RIGHT."
I A Cycler's Suggestions to the Golden
Gate Park Commissioners.
Tights at Night.
" If those who are just learning to ride
on bicycles would keep to the right there i
would be fewer collisions with those who
walk on the roads than there are now."
These words were spoken by a cyclist on
Sunday afternoon to a group of wheelmen
assembled at the Cyclers' Rest in Golden
Gate Park. This was a few minutes after
a "new one," as the beginners are called,
had run against a man who was crossing
a road, with the result that both pedes
trian and rider went down in the dust.
Accidents of this character occur fre
quently, but in view of the fact that up to
date no one has been seriously hurt, little
attention has been given to the matter.
"The thing that annoys me," continued
the speaker, "is that these frequent col
lisions will raise a prejudice against wheel
men, and it is not the wheelmen, but the
beginners who are to blame. Those who
get on a wheel for the lim or second time
in the open have an idea that they own the
entire road and can do just as they please.
They see-saw from one side to the other,
and pedestrians who wish to cross are at a
loss to mefke out which way the 'bike' is
headed, The pedestrians, who are think
ing of the other side of the road that they
desire to reach, and at the same time are
endeavoring to keep outof the way of care
less riderß, become confused, and the re
sult is a collision, a knockdown and soiled
clothes. The Commissioners should make
it a rule that all riders on bicycles should
observe the rule of 'keep to the right.' "

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 1895.
THE FERRY FOUNDATION
End of the Investigation of j
Professors Sou and
IS A VERY STRONG STRUCTURE I
— — \
No Fear for the Tower— The Method j
of Mixing: Concrete Is
The report of Professors Frank Soule
and Charles D. Marx, who were appointed
by the Board of Harbor Commissioners to
investigate the ferry foundations, was filed
yesterday and read by the board.
The report is a voluminous document
covering over 100 pages of type written ma
terial. The experts went into their work
very thoroughly, and their conclusions
were that the foundations are sufficiently
strong to bear any weight which may ever
be placed upon them, and that the tower
will not be a "source of danger to the en
The report condemns the method of mix
ing the concrete, but says that the ingre
dients, with the exception of the sand,
were up to the requirements, if not alwav3
in conformity with the specifications. It
finds that the stone was not washed, but
disagrees with the Grand Jury that this
was a detriment. After quoting the letter
of instructions received from the board the
Your letter of instruction evidently requires
us to pass upon the stability and probable dur
ability of the foundations, and in particular
upon the desirability of constructing the tower
as proposed and upon its safety and stable
character if so built. It also requests us to
carry the investigation of the work already
finished and of the quality of the materials
used in its construction no further than
shall be necessary to enable us to cor
rectly answer your lirstand second questions
according to your explanations of their spirit,
as given supplementary in the same letter.
First, it has been determined : The loads which
the arches and piers are capable of safely sus
taining with the assumption that they have
been properly designed and dimensioned and
constructed Jn the manner and from the
materials described by the^peciflcations.
No opinion is expressed as to the merits
of the system in building the foundation,
as the professors were not asked to do so.
The report is accordingly limited to a
statement of the investigators' judgment
as to its strength and continued strength.
Twenty net tons, it is assumed, is a safe
load for a pile. By actual experiment it
was found that a load of as much as forty
five tons per pile for twenty-four hours did
not move the pile, and that a group of four
piles would sustain twenty tons per pile
for four days without having any sign of
The professors express themselves as
satisfied with the piling.
In regard to the cement it is said that
it shows no tendency to blow, and it is
pronounced to be a fair grade of Portland
cement, suited to the work in hand.
In examining the sand it was found that
the quality used was very tine, while a
coarse material was called for. Two con
clusions were arrived at: First, that with
a coarse sand, as specified, better results
would be obtained. Second, that the
presence of the fine material in the broken
stone is an advantage rather than a detri
While the rock used is not "blue trap
rock of the best quality," the professors
say that it is good enough to fairly comp
ly with the spirit of the specifications in
this regard ; and that it will give strength
and resistance entirely comparable to
those of the other components of the con
crete. Blue trap rock of the finest quality
it is believed cannot be found within a
radius of 120 miles of San Francisco.
The stone, it was found, was not washed,
but this it is said is not a detriment.
The final conclusions of Professors Souie
and Marx are summoned up as follows:
First, That the ferries foundations are suffi
cient in strength and probable durability
gafely to sustain the weight of the superstruc
ture which it is proposed by the adopted plans
of the board for said superstructure to rest
Secondly, That the tower of the proposed
superstructure, as indicated by tne aloresaid
adopted plans, will not be a cause of undue
strain upon the foundations, nor "a source of
danger to the entire construction."

He Gets Another "Writ From the Su-

Judge Murphy has remanded A. W.
Winthrop into the custody of the Sheriff,
because he believes the evidence against
him is strong enough to warraut his trial.
Winthrop had secured a writ of habeas
corpus returnable before Judge Murphy
last Saturday, and after argument it was
submitted. Yesterday morning Judge
Mvirphy rendered his decision. He said if
Winthrop be guilt> s at all, he is guilty of
murder in the first degree, and as there is
evidence tending to show his guilt, the
court did not feei justified in examining the
facts in a habeas corpus proceeding in
stead of in a regular trial.
Winthrop immediately appealed to the
Supreme Court, and Justice Beatty granted
another writ, returnable before the higher
body this morning at 10 o'clock.

SUES TOE THE PAPERS.
The Warring Police Court Clerks Now
in the Superior Courts.
Suit has been commenced by Alfred L.
Morgenstern, the brevet clerk of Police
Court 2, to have A. A. Watson ousted
from his position, or the one he claims,
and to have himself installed. The State
is made a party to the suit upon the rela
tion of Morgenstern.
The complaint sets forth that Watson
was appointed on January 14, and on
April 15 he was removed and Morgen
stern was appointed in his place. But
Watson, the complainant states, has re
fused to turn over all the paraphernalia of
the office, and, with the State to back him,
Morgeastern pleads that he be compelled
to do so.
Stockings were unknown in Bible times.
Literature first mentions them as having
been worn in Italy about the year 1100.
BODIE'S ANNUAL ELECTION
The Opposition Defeated by
President Walker's Many
A DIRECTOR FROM COURTESY.
The " Outsiders " Get Only Three of
the Seven Members of the
The shareholders in opposition to the
present management of the Bodie Consoli
dated Mining Company were largely in
the majority at the company's annual
meeting yesterday in the Nevada block,
but all the shares they represented were
enough to give them but two of the seven
directors. Yet those in power gave them
a third as an earnest of their good feeling.
The outside shareholders were very
much handicapped by the fact that Presi
dent Walker has had the advantage of his
position to gather in a great many proxies
from shareholders who are taking no
hand in the fight, and he appeared with
30,395 shares. However, a number of
those who had signed proxies after
ward joined with the opposition, and 9950
ot their shares were present to be voted.
Then the officers had obtained proxies for
3945 shares from the New \ortc agency.
The total number of shares and proxies
presented by the opposition was 30,395,
while the "old crowd," which is in con
trol and charged with mismanagement,
showed up with 56,005 shares.
This gave a total present of 88,195 shares,
which is within a few hundred of every
share of the company's stock, except those
which have fallen into the treasury for
non-payment of assessments.
T. P. Ryan tiled a protest against count
ing the proxies on the ground that they
did not specify where the Bodie mine is
The superintendent's report, the trial
balance and statement of receipts and ex
penditures, were received and placed on
tile. The superintendent showed that
1548 feet of tunnels, crosscuts and winzes
had been run during the year.
The statement of receipts and expendi
tures showed that $122,409 34 had been re
ceived from bullion ands24,f>7(J 64 had been
paid for mine expenses, $9576 38 for mill
expenses and $06,600 in dividends.
A resolution presented by R. B. Wood
ward, ratifying the acts of the board of
directors, was adopted, the 32,190 votes of
the opposition being cast in the negative.
A resolution offered by Mr. Woodward,
authorizing the directors to sell the stock,
some 11,000 shares on hand, purchased for
non-payment of assessments, caused a stir.
"I object very strenuously to any such
action," said Attorney Charles L. Patton
of the opposition. "Bodie stock has been
selling as high as $4 25 during the past
year, and now it is proposed to sell tnese
shares when they are ddwn to 25 cents."
Finally the motion was withdrawn.
Then, when the election of directors was
in order, Mr. Patton suggested to Presi
dent Walker, George Ives and others of
those in power that it would be a very
graceful act for them to give the opposi
tion an extra director. They had not
quite enough votes to elect three. "AH we
want is sufficient representation to make a
thorough investigation," he said. "We
do not know whether there is anything
wrong or not."
But T. P. Ryan, tae leader of the recal
citrants, came very near stopping that.
"I want you to understand that we be
lieve that the affairs of the mine have
been mismanaged and that we are going
to fight on that line. I can't stultify my
self now by saying that I do not think
that there is anything wrong. The only
way you can get a third director is for me
to withdraw, I suppose."
But the leaders of both sides went aside
and talked the matter over ana came back
and announced that the opposition should
have three directors.
At a meeting of the board, held imme
diately afterward, H. D. Walker was re
elected president, R. B. Woodward vice
president. M. E. Willis secretary, and
John W. Kelly superintendent.
The next move of the opposition will be
to call a meeting of the shareholders to
select an expert to make a thorough ex
amination into tbe mine's management.
