The steamer Progressist, Pinkham mas
ter, another whaleback, arrived yesterday,
67 days from Sunderland, England, with
3000 tons of coal for Dunsmnir & Son. She
is the British idea of a whalebaok and
differs materially from he Wetmore and
Everett. Her principal feature is her ap
pearance above the loadline, below which
she looks like an ordinary steamer.
The vessel has no sheer, her surplus
buoyancy being provided for without the
upspringing of the hull fore and aft. She
is provided with three decks, the upper or
weather deck being protected from the
seas forward by a raised bow and a turtle-
back cover extending aft. In fact it is
hard to tell whether she is of the whale or
It is at the bow where she differs roost
from the Everett, whose under sloping
stern points up in the air like a sled run
ner. The English craft has the decidedly
English cut, stem perpendicular from the
forefoot to the highest point. She has an
entire double bottom on the cellular sys
tem, and with specially subdivided tanks
at the after end, so thatwithout any dan
ger to the vessel water can be admitted for
ballast when the consumption oi coal
lightens the steamer. The large turret
gives ample space for the accommodation
of the crew.
The Progressist is of- 5100 tons burden
and is one of the nine vessels of the type
built in England. Her trip from Sunder
land was uneventful, having with the ex
ception of a few days calm weather all the
voyaee. She will go in the coal and gen
eral freight business on this coast.

A VICTORY FOR COAL MEN
End of a Famous Patent Hop
per Litigation Involving
The Appelate Court Decides In Fa
vor of the Oregon Improvement
On last Thursday the United States Cir
cuit Court of Appeals rendered a very im
portant decision bearing on the coal com
panies doing business in the City. The
title of the suit w.a3 the Excelsior Coal
Company versus the Oregon Improvement
Company, and the judgment of the higher
court ended a litigation of eight years.
The Chronicle stated that the decision was
In favor of the plaintiff, and the coal men
have been considerably exercised over the
report. This was a mistake, the decision
being entirely in favor of the Oregon Im
provement Company, and virtually
knocked out all patent rights of the Rob-
John L. Howard, manager of the Oregon
Improvement Company, was asked yester
day what effect the decision would have on
coal companies, and then it was learned,
for the first time, that the decision was in
favor of tlie coal men. Had it been other
wise it would have meant the loss of
thousands of dollars to the Oregon Im
provement Company, the Black Diamond
Company, J. Rosenfeld's Sons and A. Duns
mnir & Sons.
Martifl R. Roberts held a patent for
many years on a coal-hopper which had to
be used by all coal importers, who paid
handsome tribute to the inventor. When

management of the Oregon Improvement
Company he immediately went to work
on the construction of coal-bunkers at the
foot of Beale street, in close proximity to
the company's yard. In 1887, about the
time the patent on the Roberts hopper
was to expire, suit was instituted against
the Oregon Improvement Company for in
fringement of patent. The action was
brought by the Excelsior Company, the
backers of Roberts, and Judge Sabin ren
dered judgment against the local concern
"We took an appeal to the United States
Supreme Court," said Mr. Howard yester
day, "and got a new trial before Judge
McKenna, who also decided against us.
Our counsel asked for a rehearing on the
ground that the court labored under a mis
conception of the two machines and on the
second hearing Judge McKenna decided in
our favor. Roberts appealed to the United
States Circuit Court of Appeals, and the
higher tribunal decided on Thursday iv
our favor. Roberts had also begun action
against the Black Diamond Coal Company
and obtained judgment in the lower court.
The case was appealed to the United States
Supreme Court, where the validity of the
patent was attacked, and the Supreme
Court decided that Roberts' machine was
not protected by the patent at all as there
had been many changes in the original
machine. It was mainly on this de
cision that we won our case, and Roberts
waited till the last minute before commenc
ing his suit to enable him to run his
claim up into the thousands. Had he won
his suit it would have meant a large loss
to the coal men on the coast."

A PARK MUSEUM ANNEX.
The Park Commissioners Have
Decided to Erect a New
Valuable Collections Refused Be
cause the Present Structure Is
Tho Park Museum is to have an annex.
This has been definitely decided by the
Park Commissioners, who have come to
the conclusion that more room is an abso
lute necessity. The main building is
already full, so liberal has been the re
sponse to the Commissioners' call for
donations issued several months since.
Feverai days ago a wealthy resident of this
City, whoso name the Park people are not
at liberty to disclose at present, offered a
very line collection of oil paintings for
exhibition, which has been gathered from
the best galleries of Europe during the
past twelve years. At first he intended to
let tho collection go to the Hopkins Art
Institute, but afterward changed his mind
in favor of a location where the people
could have the benetit of his collection.
He visited the museum and the lack of
room where the pictures would show to
good advantage was at once apparent.
The matter was brought to the attention
of Irving M. Scott, and he in turn laid it
before the other Commissioners, with the
result as announced. No plans have yet
been decided upon, and the work cannot
be commenced until the Commissioners
get their next appropriation, as the old
fund is about exhausted. When the new
structure has been completed the ex
hibits throughout will be rearranged.
At the present time there is a noticeable
lack of order in the assignment of the
different collections, due primarily to
limited space. For example, extensive
samples of California products occupy a
room with the natural history exhibits.
It is the idea of the Commissioners to
keep the departments separate and ex
clusively for collections belonging to that
A case in point occurred yesterday.
Mrs. Oscar Edlhard, a former resident bf
San Francisco, now living at Guadalajara,
Mexico, sent to the museum a valuable
collection of Toltec and Aztec idol.s. The
collection numbers 100 images in stone, the
former taken from the ruins at Soldad. in
the State of Vera Cruz, and the latter from
the former site of an Aztec temple at
Otumba, thirty-five miles from the City of
Mexico. For lack of space this collection
has been set up in the Spanish room,
which already contains a great many
things in no way connected with Spanish
The most valuable collection of Alaska
relics in existence is owned by the Alaska
Commercial Company of this City. These
relics have been offered to the Commission

Mrs. Lillie Fleming will swear out a warrant

result of drink. For two Saturday nights he

in fact, remained out all night. Finally sho

A REPLY TO DR. FITCH
Miss Susan B. Anthony and
Rev. Anna Shaw Discuss
WRONG ABOUT THE CENSUS.
They Say the Doctor Would
Surely Starve Women Into
Miss Susan B. Anthony and Rev. Anna
Shaw have hesitated about replying to the
strictures of Dr. Fitch on the new woman.
They have scarcely thought that the man
who, in Miss Shaw's own words, "has
never seen us, does not read what we say,
«md yet knows all about üb," was worth
their serious attention.
Last uicht, however, they decided to
answer a few of the chairman of the liter
ary committee's representations of the new
"I have no intention of being drawn
into a controversy with such a man as Dr.
Fitch," said Miss Susan B. Authony, "but
I do not object to replying to a few of the
statements he has made. He says women
are competing in the labor market with
''It isjmy opinion women would like to
work at home, to do their cutting and
weaving and spinning in their own houses,
as they did a couple of generations ago,
but machinery has driven them out into
factories to do the very work which they
could formerly do by their own hearth
stones. No one found fault with the
women of by-gone times who did spinning
and weaving. To-day the place of work is
changed, but the work is the same.
"Away back forty years ago, when I nut
a resolution in a teachers' convention that
women teachers should be paid as much as
men, I was opposed on the ground that
women would not marry if they could earn
as much as men. I said at the time, 'That's
a poor compliment to men' — but it is Dr.
Fitch's argument. He thinks the worst
thine for society is for women to earn so
much that they are not compelled to marry,
and assumes that women wouldn't rafcrry
unless they find it impossible to support
"In fact, his belief seems to be that women
will only marry to win their daily bread,"
remarked Rev. Anna Shaw. "As for the
effect of their competition on men's wages,
even Dr. Fitch must own that in every
branch of trade and business men are bet
tea paid now than they were forty years
ago, before women went out into the
world to work. Wages may have been
higher in California, but that was merely
temporary and the result or peculiar con
ditions. For the world at large, all labor
is better paid now than it was forty years
ago. Dr. Fitch seems to forget, too" that
if the girls of a large family go out to
work their money helps the general fund
and the father's burden is less heavy."
When Miss Shaw was asked what she
thought of Dr. Fitch's declaration that she
was wrong in her statistics, she intimated
gently that she believed it was the war
like doctor who was wrong.
"The new census report is not out yet.
but the compendium for 1890 has been pub
lished, and that shows for Massachusetts
that in towns of 2500 inhabitants and more
the number of males was 970,877 and of
females 1,033,377, giving a surplus of 62,500
females. It is a well-known fact that in
the small towns and villages the propor
tion of women is even greater. The men
come West or to the large cties and the
women often remain at home. Dr. Fitch
must have been thinking of the whole of
the United States. Whon counting the
West there may be a small preponderance
of men. How about the rest of the world,
though? If every woman had to marry in

Miss "Anthony and Miss Shaw had not
much to say about Dr. Fitch's statement
that they were putting money in the bank
by their California tour, but their friends,
who know that Miss Shaw has given up
valuable lecturing engagements to come
West, have resented the remark. Miss
Shaw, when asked about this last night,
snid : "I am a lecturer, that is my profes
sion, but at the time Dr. Fitch said we
were making such profits, 1 had not re
ceived a single cent for lecturing or preach
ing in California, neither had Miss An
"I suppose Dr. Fitch would charge a fee
for sotting a fractured limb," said Miss
Anthony. "It would be as unreasonable
to say that a preacher must never earn a
salary, as to say a lecturer must always

went into Southern California that we re
ceived a cent for speakiag here, and dur
ing the southern tour we always equally
shared the proceeds of the lectures with
the Woman's Suffrage clubs of the towns
where we spoke."
"1 am sorry there has been any discus

was away, and it was our intention to have

THE TIBURON WHARVES
Title to the Tide-land* on Which They
The Supreme Court has affirmed the de
cision of t'ae courts of Marin County in the
suit to quiet title to lifteen and a half
acres of land upon which is now situated
property of the San Francisco and North
Pacific Railroad, in whose name the land
stands. It was sold to the railroad by Mrs.
Susan Crooks, executrix ana trustee of the
estate of Matthew Crooks, but under the
will it was directed that no part of the
estate should be sold until the youngest
child in the family should become of age.
The land in question was sold long before
that time, however, and the Crooks heirs
brought suit to quiet title to it The court
held that as undei the will Mrs. Crooks
was left an undivided half of the
estate, and was sole trustee of the other
half for the benefit of the children, shs had
power to sell this small parcel, as she had
an undoubted right to dispose of her own
half interest in the land, and as trus
tee, had also the power to pass the title of
the other interest in unimproved lands,
under the terms of the will.

It is understood that the promotion of
sergeants to lieutenants and patrolmen to
sergeants and detectives has been left en-'
tirely in the hands of Chief Crowley and
nothing definite will be known as to the
lucky ones until probably the next meet

It was looked upon as a foregone con

Commissioners that Sergeants Gillen and
Wittman would till the vacancies caused
by the retirement of Captains Short and
Douglass, but nothing was said as to
either the successor of Captain Stone in
the City Prison or who would be the ad
ditional captain lor the new district.
Within the past few days something has
occurred to show that at least one of the
captains, whose retirement is requested on
July 20, does not intend to comply with
the order if he can avoid it. In other
words, that he is bringing all the pressure
he can upon the Commissioners to have the

that, the captain was making a desperate

to recommence the work of getting up the
testimonial after it was definitely known
whether he would have to quit.

that Captain Dunlevy has been retained,
but Captain Dunlevy was not asked to re
