A NEW GUN MANUFACTORY
The Ostrander People Will
Probably Come to San
Francisco.
THE PLANT NOW IN BOSTON.
Sacramento Makes a Strong Bid,
but Colonel Cochran Pre
fers This City.
A very determined effort is being made
to bring the entire plant of the Ostrander
Repeating Gun Company, now located in
Boston, to San Francisco. If the project
ors of the enterprise meet with the proper
encourage incut from the people they think
should interest themselves in the matter
the plant will be well on its way to this
coast within the next sixty days.
The gun is the invention of Willis H.
Ostrander of Merced and is in many re
spects the most wonderful double-barrel
gun yet invented. Except for a little
leather covering some eight inches above
the breech the Ostrander gun does not
differ materially, so far as appearances go,
Irom the ordinary hammerless breech
loader. In its mechanical arrangement,
however, the difference lies, and this is so
. erfect that wherever shown the true
sportsman has at once pronounced it the
most perfect double breech-loader on the
market.
TheOstrander is capable of firing four
shots in a second and a half, and can be
made ready for as many more within forty
seconds from the time the lirst shots were
lired. In firing the four shots it is not
necessary to move the gun from the shoul
der, neither does the relative position of
the arm change, thereby losing the origi
nal aim. The breaking of the gun at the
breech, when it slides forward on a securely
constructed forearm, ejects the two shells
just fired, and by an ingenious automatic
device replaces the discharged cartridges
with two fresh ones from the magazine.
"The Ostrander Gun Company is very
anxious to move its entire plant to San
A. E. Cochran,
Francisco," said Colonel A. E. Cochran
yesterday, "and we will do so if the proper
sort of inducement is held out to os. The
present home of the company is 36 New
street, Ea?t Boston, but we think that as
this is a California invention it would do
better right here at home, and we have
now 100 suns completed, and our success
is assured.
"While there has been an evolution in
powder shotguns have not kept pace by
any means. The new nitro-powders have
proven disastrous to many of the best
weapons now on the market, yet the Os
trander has shown itself capable of firing,
without danger, almost any quantity of
powder.
"If we can make the necessary arrange
ments the entire plant — the machinery
alone costing over $70,000— -will be removed
to Kan Francisco and the manufacture of
the gun commenced at once. The factory
will employ at first forty men, but in a
year's time this number will be increased
to 100. with annual output of 10,000 guns.
This will be the only gun manufactory
wesiofthe Mississippi, and, as a conse
quence, not considering the extraordinary
merit of the Ostrander as a perfect weapon,
we should control the entire business of
the Western States.
"There will be about sixty tons of freight
to be moved, at a cost of $22 a ton. Sacra
mento is willing to put up trie money and
give us the ground if necessary, in order to
secure the manufactory, but our preference
is .San Francisco. iNow is a good oppor
tunity for the late movement to encourage
manufacturers to come to the coast to give
Some evidence of its earnestness.
"There are many features about this
gun that have never been brought to the
notice of the people. For instance, the
stock is so arranged that by a little work
the barrel of any other iiun can be fitted to
it, and for ordinary purposes the combina

tion will be just as us«iul as a genuine
Ostrander. A ritle barrel can also be
iitted to the stock, which, of course, gives
it advantages over many of the more
prominent makes. The machinery used
in the factory is also capable of doing
other classes of work, such, in fact, as is
now brought here from the East.
"Mr. Swift was in Sacramento a few
days ago, when the gun was given a very
thorough trial by the sportsmen of that
city. Every person who handled it said
it was the most perfect weapon they had
seen. It was on this occasion that the
offer was made to move the manufactory
to that city, though, as I said before, I
prefer San Francisco. The matter is now
being carefully considered by those most
interested, and I do not hesitate to say
that 1 think the factory will come here.

PLEADS HER OWN CAUSE
Mrs. Kate Murphy Is Charged
With Disturbing the
Peace.
She Did So Well That Judge Camp
bell Reserved His Decision
Till Saturday.
The unusual spectacle of a woman
defendant acting as her own attorney was
witnessed in Judge Campbell's court yes
terday afternoon. The defendant was Mrs.
Kate Murphy and although she showed an
entire unacquaintance with the rules of
evidence she cross-examined the witnesses
for the prosecution with skill and point.
The spectators were kept in a state of per
petual laughter.
She was charged with disturbing the
peace on the night of June 10, the com
plaining witness being Mrs. Maude
Kaunaiu, 249 Fifth street, her next-door
neighbor. Mrs. Kaunam and her mother,
Mrs. Margaret Becker, testified that on the
night in question Mrs. Murphy entered
their house while some friends were play
ing cards in the parlor and made use of
language that was more forcible than
polite. When they got her outside and
shut the front door she kicked at the door
and raised a disturbance.
Mrs. Murphy in her cross-examination
devoted herself to asking questions about
whetherthey were married and other per
sonal matters and kept Attorney Frey for
the prosecution busy interposing objec
tions. It was impossible to keep her to
■what occurred on the night in question
and the Judge had to shut her off.
Another witness was F. B. Brennan, a
roomer in Mrs. Becker's house. Mrs. Mur
phy accused him of not telling the truth,
and caused an uproar by asking, "Are you
an opium liend?" The Judfire" finallyad
vised Brennan to leave the witness stand
to save himself from further person ques
tions.
In beginniug her address Mrs. Murphy
faced Mrs. Kaunam and Mrs. Becker, ami
pointing her ringer at them said, "I stand
to-day and look you squarely in the face."
Before she could proceed further the Judge
insisted upon her addressing him. "Well,
your Honor, the Judge," she continued, "I
have befriended these women for years. I
have become their security at the corner
grocery. I have fed them. I have lent them
money to go to the races and they bring
me to this. Your Honor, the Judge, lam
the mother of two children. I love them.
I would die for them. I am a respectable
woman and I want to have nothing to do
with the«e people. I have done with
them." Being reminded that she had said
nothing about the charge against her, she
said it was all false. She simply called
upon them in a neighborly way.
The Jiidge said he would give his deci
sion on Saturday, and advised Mrs. Mur
phy to keep away from Mrs. Kaunam and
Airs. Becker.
"I hope," said Mrs. Murphy in a loud
voice, "that I wili be paralyzed if I ever
darken their door again. Never! never!
never!' : This was received with derisive
laughter by Mrs. Kaunam and Mrs.
.Becker, and the Judge adjourned court in
a h urry.
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 1895.
THE ATLANTA EXPOSITION.
State Board of Trade Again
Communicates With the
Governor.
THE CALIFORNIA BUILDING.
Railroad Officials Donate $10,000
Toward the Projected
Plan.
The State Board of Trade is determined
that this State shall be creditably repre
sented at the Atlanta Exposition, and in
view of more thoroughly directing the at
tention of the Governor to the advisability
of calling a convention of the County
Supervisors, and having them appropriate
money from their respective treasuries to
defray the exDenses of moving the exhibit
which is contained in their rooms on Mar
ket street to the exposition grounds at
Atlanta, the secretary mailed the following
communication to Governor Budd last
evening:
The exhibit we have here in San Francisco
could not be gotten together for less than
$75,000 Tor $100,000, bnt by moving it entires
after being thoroughly replenished, an<l with
mch additions as the affiliating counties can
make and as other counties will contribute,
we would be able at a nominal cost of from
$7000 to $10,000 to make an exhibit at Atlanta
equal in variety and attractiveness, if not
quite so extensive in quantity, as that made
CALIFORNIA'S BUILDING AT THE COTTON EXPOSITION, ATLANTA.
at the World's Fair, and which cost the Ptate
and counties in the aggregate at least $500,
-000. More than this, the time is more aus
picious for presenting California's attractive
ness to the Eastern and inquiring world than
it was then. The World's Fair was held at the
opening of a season of depression; this fair
will be held at the close of that seasou— when
times are better, when people can more easily
close out and move, and when the ."pint of
progress and adventure and new enterprise,
which always induces immigration, will be
more manifest.
It is useless, however, for me to say anything
for the purpose of impressing on you the im
portance of California putting itself in evi
dence at the Atlanta Exposition. We believe
it can be done in a creditable manner at a
small cost in the way I have suggested— that is.
through appropriations made by the several
counties— and we believe also that the best
way to raise the legislative representatives of
the several counties to action in the premises
is by calling them together in one joint con
vention, where they can exchange ideas and
deliberate one with another as to what they
ought to do and what Is best to do under the
Favorable rates of transportation can be se
cured for their passage from their homes to
San Francisco ana return, and this board will
undertake to secure a suitable hall for their
meeting and to see that they are properly
treated during their stay in £an Francisco.
If you agree with the suggestion herein made
you will favor us by promulgating a call at
once, as time, you era readily understand, is
very precious. To go to Atlanta in the share
we want to go and must go, if we go at all , will
involve on the part of the State Board of Trade
a erreat deal oi extra work and preparation,
and the sooner we know whether we have got
that work to do or not the better. Yours very
truly, J. A. Filcher, Secretary.
The railroad officials have expressed
their willingness that if the State decides
to send an exhibit to Atlanta they
would transport the display providing the
amount did not exceed $10,000 free of
charge, and the members of the board are
of the opinion that the company could be
prevailed upon to do even more than this
if it were necessary, but think that $10,000
will be amply sufficient to defray all ex
penses of transportation to Georgia and
return.
The California State building will be of
purely California plans and of the mission
style of architecture. It will be 150 feet in
length by 80 feet in wid_th and will occupy
one of the most prominent positions oh
the exposition grounds, directly opposite
the railroad terminus and between Machin
ery Hall and the Transportation building.
Mrs. A. C. Dooley,a lady residing in Los
Angeles, is the originator of the undertak
ing and has civen considerable money
toward its construction.
The Board of Trade has been offered
5000 feet of space in a prominent position,
and as a matter of making it a greater ob
ject to the board to produce a large ex
hibit, the directors of the exposition have
offered them 5000 feet also in the Agricul
tural Hall.
in view of Governor Budd calling a con
vention to meet in this City for the pur
pose of considering the matter, the railroad
company will be called upon to reduce the
rates to all deleeates to one-half the usual
charge for transportation.
THE ANGEL ON THE DOME.
She Provokes Still Another
Entertaining Art Dis
cussion.
She Makes Mayor Sutro Shudder.
Auditor Broderick Favors a Bear
for the Place.
The City Hall Commission took another
fall out of the angel of the dome yesterday,
but neither the angel nor the dome nor
the City Hall Commission seems to be bet
ter or worse for it. Sculptor Marion Wells
was granted a ninety days' extension of
his contract, since ihe commission Is una
ble to decide upon the material in which
the big statue is to be cast.
The weekly discussions of the big-winged
figure are beginning to be a feature of life
at the City Hall, and if they continue will
doubtless soon attract crowds of art critics
and connoisseurs.
The topic was introduced by a communi
cation from Superintendent of Construc
tion Mellis in answer to one from the com
mission requesting some advice on the
metal in which big statues should be cast.
It was only necessary to speak of the statue
to provoke a shiver on the part of the
Mayor. It was vulgar, and the thought of
such a creature standing forever on the
most conspicuous elevation of the ball
tilled him with horror. He had traveled
all over Europe, had seen all the best
statues, and felt that he had a perfect right
to shudder in the presence of this lady, if
she might be called such.
"Why," said Auditor I3roderick, "I can't
see that exactly. If you take the wings off
her you will find she is a dead image for
Bartholdi's. Bartholdi is a reasonably ex
perienced and reliable sculptor, ain't he?
Suppose we knock the wings off the young
woman anyhow. I rather like the idea.
She will, besides, lit much better in -the
wind up there."
But City Attorney Creswell voted for the
Wells statue, wings and all, and there he
intended to stay. It was the statue as it is
with him, or none at all.
"Suppose we compromise on a bear,"
said Broderick. "I think a ten-foot grizzly
bear is the thing that should stand on this
City Hall."
"Very likely," said Creswell. "if it
wouldn't look ?o much like an old-fash
ioned hair mattress. I'm for the statue as
it is."
"This statue," said Mayor Sntro, ''looks
like a crane. Her breasts look like cannon
balls."
"And as for the Gulielmo statue, that
you seem to favor, it has no shape at all
above the lower limbs," said Broderick.
Then they returned to the consideration
of the metal again. The communication
from Mcllis was a long one, the meat of
which was comprehended in the resume at
the close as follows:
From my investigation, and I have gone into
the subject much more thoroughly than is in
dicated in this communication, I am satisfied,
First— That the white metal of the con
tract will absolutely not answer for the pur
pose of making this statue.
Second— That no "white metal" with any ad
ditional percentage of tin will be any better.
Third— That the only proper material to
make this statue out of is statuary bronze. The
alloy used should be: Copper. 90; tin, 6 to 7;
zinc, 1 to 2. And I consider that it is imma
terial whether lead— not In any case exceeding
2 per cent— be used or not. If it be omitted the
tin and zinc may be correspondingly Increased.
Aluminum bronze I do not recommend, on
account of its expense, and the practical diffi
culties which would be encountered in having
it made here.
The cost of this bronze, some $6000 more
than was calculated, left the commission
still undecided.
THE LOST LADY SHOLTO
No Trace Found of Young
Lord Douglas and His Fair
Loretta.
Broken Hearts and Broken Con
tracts Were Left Behind-A Mad
Manager.
Lady Sholto Douglas is still among the
missing. Two weeks ago last night she
disappeared, leaving behind her a sorrow
ing mother and brother, a disappointed
audience aad a disgusted and mad man
ager.
She was billed to appear at the Audi
torium; but the curtain went up and the
curtain went down, and she appeared not.
It was rnmored that her ladyship had
gone to Los Gatos to join her liege lord,
who dropped out of society and sight at
the same time.
When plump little Loretta Addis was
"doing a turn" in a dive in Bakersfield
with her brother it was the ambition of
her life to shine some day on a real stage
in a big city, as two of her sisters had done
before her. She never dreamed then of
beaming before the footlights _>9 a real
"lady"; but Lord Sholto Doitglas came
along and won her susceptible heart, and
the story of their love and marriage is
known.
Before they were married Loretta ac
cepted a, three weeks' engagement at the
Auditorium, greatly to the displeasure of
her ardent suitor. She performed at the
Eddy-street house one week, and the big
theater was filled each night.
The second week opened with a packed
house and flowers in profusion had been
prepared to shower on the popular favor
ite. But the flowers wilted waiting for the
glad sunshine of sweet Lady Sholto's
smile. She smiled not. Manager Moore
did not smile either. Broken hearts are
soon mended, but broken contracts are
not, and the manager had one of the latter
on his hands. To all Lady Sholto's friends
she is lost, but that she* is with her hus
band there is apparently no doubt. '
"No. I don't know where Lariy Sholto
Is," said Manager Moore last night, "but
I'd like to know. I've got a contract I'd
like to enforce her ladyship to complete,
or know the reason why. Her mother
does not know where she is, I am snre, for
she is in distress, her daughter having
been her main support. She had made a
big hit in the house, and her going away
in the manner in which she did has made
considerable difference to me. I heard to
day that she wa3 in town having a trous
seau made, but I do not place much faith
in the report."
ARTIST GRAHAM GONE.
A. Page Brown Thinks He Hag Moved
to New York Without Saying
Farewell.
A. Page Brown, the architect, said yes
terday that he thought there was no need
of concern in regard to the absence of
Charles S. Graham from the City. The
artist had been contemploting a trip to
New York for some months, and Mr.
Brown, who is a warm personal friend of
his, thinks he decided suddenly to make
the trip.
"I have written to those in the East who
will know whether he is there," said he,
"and shall hear from them in two or three
days. Mr. Graham ha 9 absented himself
in the same way before for a week or more,
and he is so much of a bohemian that he
does not feel called upon to notify his
friends of his intentions. I have no other
motive in trying to ascertain his where
abouts than that of personal friendship."
Mr. Graham has been absent for three
weeks.

lOOU separate islands and islets, without
counting mere jutting rocks or isolated
pinnacles.

THE "OLD OAKEN BUCKET"
Remains of the Author Rest
Out in Laurel Hill
Cemetery.
SITE OF THE SEPULCHEB.
The Woodworth Family Will Pre
serve the Sacred Ashes of
the Poet.
How dear to tins heart are the scenes of my child
hood,
When fond recollection presents them to view!
The orchard, the meadow, the deep-tangled wild
wood,
And every loved spot which my infancy knew!
The wi<!e spreading ponu and the mill that stood
by it.
The bridge and the rock where the cataract fell;
The cot of my father, Ihe dairy-house nigh it,
And e'eß the rude bucket that him? in the well—
The old oaken bucket, the iron-bound bucket,
The moss-covered bucket whicn hung in the well.
One xvho strolls into Laurel Hill Ceme
tery at the Bush-street opening and turns
to the left on Mount Vernon avenue, near
the entrance, may see close to Pioneer
path, the name Woodworth carvecf on an
ivy-covered mausoleum. The ivy clings in
such dense and fond profusion to the vault
that it half conceals the letters and the
Egyptian pillars of the sepulcher. In the
vault the mortal remains of Samuel Wood
worth, the author of the "Old Oaken
Bucket," have crumbled into dust. In the
same vault are the remains of nine
others of the Woodworth family, some of
them direct male descendants of the illus
trioiiß Samuel.
The survivors of the family dwelling in
San Francisco number nearly one hun
dred and several are descendants in direct
line.
Selim E. Woodworth of the navy and
his brother Frederick A. Woodworth,
grandson of Samuel Woodworth, have for
some months considered the advisability
of cremating the remains in the vault at
Laurel Hill. Before a final decision is
reached others of their kin will be con
sulted. Whatever disposition may be
made of the ancestral remains, it is sure
that the dust or ashes of the man who
wrote the "Old Oaken Bucket" will be
preserved and a. monument tie erected in
his memory.
Leading men and women of the temper
ance societies have discussed this proposi
tion, and the indications are that a fresh
impulse will soon be given to the monu
ment-building enter prise.
Few *people outside of San Francisco
and not very many dwellers in this town
know that Samuel Woodworth's remains
were brought here in 1860 and placed in
the Woodworth family vault. Letters and
newspaper clippings are constantly re
ceived by the family, in which informa
tion is sought concerning the tomb of
Samuel Woodworth, hence a brief history
of his career may prove interesting and
instructive:
Samuel Woodworth was born at Scitu
ate, .Mass., January 13, 1785. He wrote
WOOD WORTH'S TOMB, LONE MOUNTAIN ' CEMETERY.
verses at the age of 14, and gave such indi
cations of genius that an openine in a
printing office was made for him. He was
apprenticed to Benjamin Russel, editor
and proprietor of the "Columbian Centi
nel, with whom he continued until the
term of his apprenticeship expired, in 18lX>.
In 1807 he published a weekly paper at
New Haven, entitled the Belles Lettres
Repository.
He went from New Haven to Baltimore
and thence to New York, where, in 1810,
he married an amiable young lady to
whom was born a large number of chil
dren. Two of his daughters, Mrs. James
S. Wethered and Mrs. Georgiana Beebe,
are now residing in San Francisco. Two
of his sons were in early years closely
identified with the fortunes of this com
monwealth. These sons were Commodore
Selim E. Woodworth and Frederick A.
Woodworth. The former had charge of
the expedition sent to rescue the Dormer
Lake party, and the latter was a well
known pioneer. Both have gone to Laurel
During the contest between the United
States and Great Britain— the war in
which the British burned the National
Capitol at Washington— Samuel Wood
worth conducted a weekly newspaper in
New York, entitled The War, in which he
chronicled American victories by land and
sea.
He edited at the same time a monthly
magazine called the "Halcyon Luminary
and Theological Repository," devoted to
the promulgation of the doctrines of the
New Church (Swedenborgian) of which he
was a sincere professor. His grandsons,
now living in San Francisco, adhere to the
same religious faith, and adjoining the
beautiful home of Selim E. Woodworth on
Lyon street is a quaint and picturesque
Swedenborgian church.
In 1816 Samuel Woodworth wrote the
"Champion of Freedom," a weird novel in
two volumes, in winch the Father of Our
Country is made to perform duty as a
ghost, but he is of good lnck and shows
much skill in rescuing the heroine. Samuel
Woodwortb was subsequently associated
with George P. Morris in the establish
ment of the New York Mirror. Morris
said that Woodworth's "Old Oaken
Bucket" would be admired as long as cool
water from the well continued to slake the
thirst of the weary traveler. The penius
of Samuel Woodworth was recognized by
Clinton, Webster, Channinp. Everett,
Halleck, Story and Sir Walter Scott.
The "Old Oaken Bucket" was written in
the summer of 1817. The family reminis
cence conceruins: its production is thus
told in George P. Morris' introduction to
Mr. Woodworth's poems:
The family was living at the time on Duane
street, New York. The poet came home to din
ner one very warm day, having walked from
his office, near the foot'of Wall street. Being
mneh heated -with the exercise he drank a
glass of water— New York pump water—ex
claiming, as he replaced the water on the ta
ble, "That is very refreshing, but how mucn
more refreshing would it be to take a good long
draught this warm day from the old oaken
bucket I left hanging in my father's well at
home."
Hearing tin?, the poet's wife, who was al
ways a suggestive body, said: "Selim, why
wouldn't that be a pretty subject for a poem."
Trie poet took the hint, and under the inspi
ration of the moment sat down and poured out
from the very depth of his heart those beauti
ful lines which have immortalized the name of
Wood worth.
Samuel Wood worth nlso wrote a dramatic
poem entitled the "Forest Rose," which
Samuel Woodworth, Author of " The
Old Oaken Bucket."
attained a fairly good place on the stage,
and held it for several years.
The Wooaworth grandchildren now liv
ing are Selim E.. Frederick A. and Ben
jamin Woodworth in San Francisco and
Nellie Woodworth and sister in Cambridge,
Mass.
The remains of the poet's wife rest along
side of her husband's in the Wood worth
vault at Laurel Hill.
RAILROAD RATES RESTORED
The Southwestern Freight War Per
emptorily Stopped by the Managers.
A dispatch was received yesterday by
Vice-President Stubbs of the Southern Pa
cific Company to the effect that all lines in
Texas have agreed to restore freight rates.
Quite recently a combination was effected
in St. Louis by the Southwestern Associa
tion, which established a stand ard for
freight rates in the Southwest and as far
north as St. Louis. Mr. Stubbs attended
the meeting and took an active part in its
deliberations as the Sunset route and its
many connections were deeply interested.
But hardly had the various" rail road of
ficials returned home when the St. Louis
agents began a fierce rate war, which ut
terly demoralized affairs that had been
definitely settled.
Then the managers put their heads to-
gether, and as quickly as the combination
went to pieces it was welded again. The
incident is viewed by railroad men as proof
that their comparts cannot be seriously
broken, and that there is no chance for a
war in Western or transcontinental rates
on freight.
The most easterly point of the United
States is Quoddy Hean, Maine; the most
westerly, Attu "island, Alaska; the most
northerly, Point Barrow, Alaska; the most
southerly, Key West, Flo.
