PACIFIC GROVE GAMP
Eight Hundred Regulars
on Their Summer
FATIGUED AND FOOTSORE
They Marched Many Miles
Under a Blazing
UNDER FOBSYTH'S COMMAND.
The First Day Spent In Preparing
the Grounds for Their
PACIFIC GROVE, Cal., July 16. -The
streets of Monterey and vicinity were alive
to-day with brass-buttoned pedestrians.
About 800 regular soldiers arrived this
morning from the various military stations
in California— a tired looking lot after
their tedious walk of 150 miles in weather
that was very warm. The report that
there were forty odd soldiers sick on the
road was entirely unfounded, as from Gen
eral Shaftei's account the troops never
made a better trip. There were six or
seven bluecoats who got a little footsore
and rode with the cooks and drivers, but
were not sick.
The day was devoted to strengthening
the camps. As yet no programme has
been arranged, but by to-morrow affairs
will be in better shape. There are two
camps in adjoining fields, one occupied by
the cavalry, and the other by the light
battery and artillery.
Among to-day's distinguished arrivals
were: General Forsyth, Colonel M. B.
Young, Colonel Shafter, Captain Gale,
Lieutenant Meal, Lieutenant Rutherford,
Captain Thorp, Captain Summerall, Cap
tain Gatley, Captain Winston, Lieutenant
Patterson, Captain O'Connell, Captain
Morse, Captain Starr, Lieutenant Folsom,
Lieutenant Noble, Lieutenant Rodieg,
Lieutenant Delgmerndy, Lieutenant Crox
ton, Lieutenant Kirkman, Lieutenant Clo
man, Lieutenant Crofter, Lieutenant Wil
cox, Lieutenant Kilbourne, Lieutenant
Kilburn, Lieutenant Binns, Lieutenant
Bent, Adjutant-Lieutenant Brant, Quar
termaster Ferris, Captain M. S. Caw and
Assistant Surgeon Lieutenant Frick.
There are two troops, A and B, from the
Presidio, four companies from Angel
Island and three companies from Benicia
now in camp.

Opening of the IF. C. T. V. Summer
School of Methods.
PACIFIC GROVE, Cal., July 16.— The
W. C. T. U. Summer School of Methods
convened at Pacific Grove this morning.
The classes are large, with a good repre
sentation from every section of the State.
Mrs. C. Kyle of Watsonville opened the
morning meeting with a talk on "The Sa
loon and the Sabbath." The Sabbath roll
call of nations was next discussed by Mrs.
C. Armstrong of Salinas. Mrs. A. B. Gove
gave a paper on "Prison "Work," showing
that a great proportion of prisoners com
mitted their crimes while under the influ
ence of liquor. Miss Mary Barbour ren
dered an excellent address on "Our Work
of To-day." The morning session closed
with a Bible reading by Mrs. Churchill. .
The afternoon session opened with an
address on "Country Work" by Mrs.
Knowles of San Joaquin. Mrs. N. Eyster,
superintendent of juvenile work, exempli
fied her work before the union. She urged
that there should be a half day each week
devoted to Loyal Legion work.
This address was followed by a general
Miss Helen McLean presented the claims
of the Demorest contests. She told of
the sudden death of Mr. Demorest, but
said it would not affect the continuation of
the contests, as the family would carry on
The State president addressed a crowded
house this evening. She reviewed the
work of the year and the results of reform
ing influences, dwelling at length upon the
action of legislatures and the attitude of
the Government, and deplored that men
who prefer to shout with saints will vote
with sinners. She called particular at
tention to the pending amendment for the
enfranchisement of women as the one ob
ject to be gained during the coming year.
The session was closed by a talk on the
franchise of women.
CHILENO VALLEY ACCIDENT
Rancher De Martin Run Over
by a Hayrake and Terri
Work on Petaluma's Fire Alarm
System Begun— Hunters Kill
PETALUMA, Cal., July 16.— A. de Mar
tin, a Chileno Valley rancher, was the
victim of a probably fatal harvesting acci
dent yesterday. He was riding on a hay
rake, when his horse became unmanage
able and ran away, throwing him in front
of the rake. The tines passed over him,
tearing his scalp fearfully, gashing his
neck and back and breaking one of his ribs.
When picked up the man was bleeding
profusely from his numerous wounds and
suffering greatly. He was brought to the
Washington Hotel in this city, where he is
now lying in a precarious condition.
Sale of an Orchard.
PETALUMA, Cal., July 16.— Movements
in real estate are picking up in Petaluma.
Yesterday the old Captain Hunter prop
erty, consisting of fourteen acres of orchard
and berries, was sold to C. A. Jacobsen,
who will erect a handsome residence upon
it. Mr. Jacobsen disposed of his old resi
dence to J. A. Wright.
New Fire Alarm System.
PETALUMA, Cal., July 16.— Agent R.
A. Rose of the Game well Fire Alarm Com

immediately started a force of men at
work laying wires and erecting poles for
the fire alarm system recently contracted
for by the City Trustees.
RAID OJV A BO AIiIi ISC- HOUSE.
Officer* Capture. Eight Men Supposed to
DES MOINES, lowa, July 16.— Federal
officers from Keokuk came here and quietly
raided a boarding-house kept by Mrs. F. E.
Frazier, and arrested eight men, who are
understood to be old criminals. The offi
cers who made the arrests had nothing to
do with the local police, and as soon as
they had their men went back to Keokuk.
The raid is very sensational, and it is be
lieved the capture is important. The men
are said to be an old gang that has opera
ted in the southern part of the State. It is
also believed that they have done counter
feiting and passed bad money.
MAY HE ELECTROCUTED.
A Woman Found Guilty of a Murder in
NEW YORK, H. V., July 16.-The trial
of Maria Baerberi in the Court of General
Sessions, before Recorder Goff, for the
murder of her lover, Deminico Cataido,
was concluded to-night, the jury bringing
in a verdict of guilty of murder in the first
degree. The prisoner was remanded until
Thursday for sentence.
She is the first woman in the State con
demned to death since the passage of the
law making electrocution the penalty. As
the case now stands, Maria is adjudged by
the judge a subject for the electric""chair.
The sentence of the court, of course, has
not yet been pronounced, but there is but
one sentence for murder in the first de
gree. Few believe, however, that Maria
will sit in the death chair. The case,
it was reported to-night, would be taken
to the Court of Appeals, and if that court
did not order a new trial the Governor
would be appealed to to commute the
death sentence to imprisonment for life.

WINS A BRIDE BY MAIL
Romantic Courtship and Mar
riage of Professor Em ile
Pleased With a Woman's Likeness,
He Presses His Suit by Means
NEW YORK, N. V., July 16.— When the
French steamer La Norruandie from
Havre was made fast to the pier Sun
day afternoon Professor Emile Ginnsz of
Columbus went aboard and began a search
for the woman to whom he was engaged
to be married. He had never seen her,
but he had her picture in bis pocket and
that saved him from the embarrassment
of taking aside the stewards and whisper
ing to them: "Say, my friend, will you
kindly tell me which one of these young
ladies is my sweetheart?" His eyes pres
ently rested upon a modest little brunette
with black eyes. She had sighted "him
first, and was looking at him bashfully and
with many blushes. He sprang forward.
j She uttered the conventional "Emile" and
he exclaimed "Marie." After they identi
fied themselves to each other's satisfaction
they started for St. Patrick's Cathedral to
be married. .
The bride was Miss Alarie Schultheiss of
Alsace, Germany. The professor was born
in Alsace, but left there before Marie could
talk. When Alsace was occupied by the
Prussians he went to Paris and did his best
in the trenches to keep them out of the
French capital. He studied music at a con
servatory, and when he was proticient he
came to this country and settled in
Indianapolis as a teacher. His sister still
stayed in the little Alsatian town, where
she became principal in what in this coun
try would be the normal school. Her
brightest, prettiest and most proficient
pupil was Marie Schultheiss, daughter of
the editor of the local paper.
The sister wrote to Emile in glowing
terms of her young charge, telling him that
if he ever wanted a wife he must come and
wed the girl. A photograph of Marie served
further to stimulate the interest of the
music teacher, and he sent his picture to
his sister to show to the girl. Mr. Ginnsz
after a while began to write to Marie. He
told her that he already loved her from
seeing her likeness and from hearing of her
many charms and virtues. She consented
to be his wife, provided he would come
over and see her, and provided always that
they did not both change their minds on
When things reached this point the mu
sician had become organist of the cathe
dral at Columbus, and he found that he
could not get leave of absence for a wed
ding expedition. He wrote to Marie and
begged her to come to him. He would
meet her on the steamship pier and they
would take a cab to the cathedral in New
York, and be married within an hour of
her landing; and so it happened that the
Erofessor to-day awaited the coming of a
ride he had never met.
He had made all arrangements for the
ceremony. He arrived in New York on
Friday, and went to the St. Denis Hotel.
Most of the time after his arrival was spent
at the office of the French steamship line.
He kept the clerks busy on Saturday tell
ing him that La Normandie had not been
sighted off Fire Island. Bright and early
yesterday morning he was on the pier
waiting her arrival. After they had met
the bride suggested that her costume was
not a bridal one, and they had better wait
until she could get from her trunk a white
dress sucn as brides wear in Alsace. So he
escorted her to the Hotel Griffon, 21 West
Ninth street, where she registered. She
went to her room and prepared to array
herself, while he smoked cigars in the cafe.
They were married at 5 o'clock p. m.

The question of how and in what manner
the City Hall statue shall be constructed
was finally decided by the City Hall Com
missioners yesterday, when Messrs. Brod
erick and Creswell decided that the white
metal, which has been discussed by the
Commissioners for some weeks past, was
the proper thing for the statue.
Mayor Sutro left the meeting after a
short discussion of the merits of the vari
ous compositions, and the remaining Com
missioners took the matter in their own
hands and decided the matter once for all.
The composition as accepted consists of
10 percent of copper, 20 per cent of tin and
70 per cent of zinc.
The tensile strength of the composition

THE BAY DISTRICT RACES.
First Choices Meet With Their
Usual Misfortune, but
BOREAS A RARE GOOD ONE.
The Brown Colt Showed Distance
Suited Him by Galloping a
Mile In 1:41.
The number of bookmakers was swelled to
nine by yesterday's drawing.
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the flag had
not yet fallen on the second race.
Chevalier rode four pronounced favorites
yesterday and only succeeded in getting the
money with one. His ride on Realization did
not suit the critics.
Jockey J. Sullivan leaves to-night for Ogden,
Utah, where he will enter they employ of
Thomas Keough, the wealthy Horseman of that
Deadhead, a 100 to 1 shot, in the opening
race, ran away with his rider, Riley. His show
ing of speed did not indicate him to be a very
dangerous quality in the race.
Duke Stevens on his last run looked to have
a very rosy chance in the lourth race, but
Starter Ferguson's supply of patience must
have become exhausted by that time, for he
gave the Duke a very poor send-off. He showed
a world of speed in the race, but could not
make up the lost ground.
Jockeys' valets at the track are now com
pelled to wear a cap. bearing a black band
stamped with gold letters, "Jockey's Valet."
They were the cause of much sport down in
the paddock, and were adopted with a view of
preventing the valets from entering the bet

George Rose's brown colt Boreas bids
fair to become a stake horse, for as he de-
monstrated yesterday he is rapidly out
growing the selling platers' class. Starting
favorite in the last race of the day, a mile
dash, he ran over the top of his field in the
stretch and finished the mile in 1:41, with
such ease in the face of a strong breeze as
to demonstrate his early graduation from
selling races, for they will get to be risky
experiments with a horse of his caliber.
Commission, who opened a 7 to 5 chance,
but went back in the books to 2to 1, fin
ished second to the brown fellow.
Ouly a fair crowd attended the races
yesterday, the light fields, poor betting
and cheap quality of horses that have been
starting of late no doubt having much to
do with this depression of racing in gen
The favorites were bowled over with the
accustomed regularity, but two of them
scoring, and Starter Ferguson helped
weary the crowd with his rather ragged
work with the flag. The delays at the post
in the first two races were very tedious,
thirty minutes or more being consumed in
Of the nine starters in the opening event
at five furlongs, Arno seemed to survive
the racket at the post the best, and getting
away in front when the flag fell was never
headed, winning by two lengths from
Mount Carlos, the 3 to 2 favorite, Johnny
Capron running in place. The winner
went to the Dost 4}£ to 1.
Notwithstanding C. Weber's rough
usage of him at the cost in the next race,
the half-mile dash for maiden two-year
olds, the 11 to 5 choice Don Pedro stood
the gaff gamely, and getting away second
at the start went to the front and was
never headed, although swerving badly in
the stretch. He finished first, four lengths
in front of Prince Hooker, with Moilie
Bawn a poor third.
Realization, who has not been out for
some time, opened up a 7 to 5 favorite for
the five-and-a-half-furlong spin that was
fourth on the card, but receded in the bet
ting to 2% to 1, the heaviest play being on
Silver State and Ricardo. The knowing
ones were badly scorched on the race, for
young Mclntyre assumed the lead with
Major Cook carrying bnt eighty-nine
pounds almost from the jump, and he led
the field a merry chase to the wire, winning
by two lengths from Silver State in 1:07 }■£
Chevalier got away first with the favorite,
but took him back, and was unable to get
to the front again, finishing third.
Mulberry was a lukewarm choice for the
fourth race, a six-furlong run, opening at
even money and closing at 13 to 10. Cheva
lier got him away from the post poorly and
was not able to get him near the front.
Riding a nicely judged race on Royal

THE STEIKEES 1 DEFENSE,
Attorney Monteith Saya His Charges
It came to the knowledge of Attorney
George W. Monteith yesterday that Tom
Roberts, his brother. M. A. Roberts, and
one Forrest, all members of the Oakland
lodge of the American Railway Union,
have stated that he was endeavoring to un
justly collect $1800 from the Oakland union
for services rendered in the trial of the
railroad strikers, Mayne and Cassidv, be
fore Judge Morrow in the United States
District Court during the early months of
the year. Mr. Monteith expressed himself
as being both surprised and greatly an
noyed over their conduct. Speaking of
the matter he said :
The statement that I charged the Oakland
union $1800 for my services in the railroad
strikers' case is false. My charges far the
whole trial, which lasted twenty-one weeks,
were $2600, and of that amount I have received
¥800. My services were charged to the Ameri
can Railway Union as a whole— i. c., the local
unions in this district, including Dunsmulr,
Red Bluff. Sacramento, Vallejo, Oakland, San
Francisco and San Jose.
Some time ago a committee called on me to
effect a settlement of the $1800 balance, and
informed me they could raise no funds, but
were willing to furnish me with labor to re
model my residence. I t»ld the boys to do the
best they could and I would not bother them,
and accepted their proposition.
Later the secretary of the Oakland union
asked for a copy of the statement that I had
given the committee, and I sent it to him. It
showed a balance due of $1800. I made no re
quest for payment at the time, simply because
I thought it unnecessary, as I had the fullest
confidence that the men whoge liberty had
been saved would do the best they could.
Indeed, saving a few of the stripe of Tom
RoberU and his brother Mike, I believe they
feel that way.
Harry A. Knox, the well-known Ameri
can Railway Union leader, fully confirmed
the statement made by Mr. Monteith, and
added that the whole proceeding was
simply an attempt to create trouble be
tween* the American Railway Union and
RAILROAD TAXES REDUCED.
The Central Pacific's Assess
ment at Sacramento
Cut in Half.
The Supervisors In That City De
cide to Encourage the Rail
Tax Agent E. Black Ryan of the South
ern Pacific Company returned yesterday
from Sacramento, where he had appeared
before the Board of Supervisors, sitting as
a board of equalization, in reference to the
application of the Central Pacific Com
pany for a reduction of the Sacramento
railroad assessment from $922,000 to
$466,660. And Mr. Ryan was filled with
pardonable satisfaction, as he had carried
the day. The assessment was reduced to
The Central Pacific Company's estimate
of the value of its property in Sacramento
differed by almost one-half from that of
the County Assessor. Mr. Ryan stated
that on information and belief the prop
erty was worth $466,660, divided as follows:
In car repair-shop, brickmill, spring shop,
brass foundry, locomotive paint-shop, $4550;
roundhouse, locomotive machine-shop, copper
and tin shop, pipe and blacksmith shop, $47,
--650; spike and bolt, new blacksmith, car and
pattern shop, saw and planing mill, cabinet,
plating, brass and upholstery shops, $17,500;
car and machine shop, rolling-mill, paint and
old car Bhop, car, pipe and trimming depart
ment, $14,700; wheel foundry, power-house,
storehouse, scrap pile, electric and pumping
plant", $38,500; transfer tables, oil and oil
tanks, hosecsrt, hose, patterns, furniture and
fixture, horses, $3720; 3097 tons of coal, 280
cords of wood, $11,970; lumber, pip, 6crap and
new Iron, #43, 000; boiler iron, steel, castings,
carwheels, rails, $19,100; springs nnd
bars rnbber uprings, car-axles, tires, $10,
--270; nuts, bolts, spikes, fishplates and air
brake materials, $1200; brass, copper, zinc,
switch rail, targets, $1100; hoisting-engine,
$400; wharves at city front, $3000; buildings,
shops, roundhouse and all other improvements
between H. A, Sixth and Elver sireet6, $250,
--000. Total, $466,660.
The majority of the Supervisors were of
the opinion that it would not be a wise
policy to assess industries out of existence
and in this instance they thought that
every encouragement should be given the
railroad company to maintain the shops in
Sacramento. They certainly would not
sustain the Assessor. The entire board
voted in favor of the reduction.

Appeals From Decisions by the Ap

United States District Attorney Foote
has begun two suits in the United States
Circuit Court looking to a reversal of de
cisions made by the Board of General Ap
praisers. One is a guestiou of steel rails,
and the Bank of California is directly in
terested in the outcome. The rails were
bonded under the McKinley act and taken
out of the warehouse under the Wilson
tariff. Collector Wise taxed the goods
under the first law and the owners ap
pealed. The Appraisers sustained the ap
peal and now Uncle Sam is going to try
The second suit is that in the Zante cur

because the imported article came from

THE FINANCE COMMITTEE
Limit of Expenditure In Sev
eral Municipal Depart
MONEY FOR EXTRA POLICEMEN
Estimates Made for Park Improve
ments and Public Schools
The members of the Finance Committee
of the Board of Supervisors got their
heads close together last night and agreed
on, a number of things concerning the
limit of next year's expenditures of the
City's money. Nearly all the members of
the board were present and expressed their
views on the matters under consideration.
To begin with, the Finance Committee
agreed to give to the Police Department
the sums asked for, providing for the ap
pointment of seventy-five additional men
on the force ana for horses and equipments
for ten mounted men. Then they agreed to
set aside a sum for the erection of a new
smallpox hospital. They agreed on the
appropriation for park improvement and
for public school purposes, both consider
ably under the estimates furnished by the
officials in interest. They urovided for
clerical salaries and they talked consider
ably on all matters.
The first question arose on the Exempt
Firemen's relief fund. Somebody sug
gested that they set aside $6000 for this
fund, but Clerk Russell pointed out that
under the act establishing the fund the
firemen were authorized to make demands
not in excess of $12,000. Supervisor Tay
lor thought that the firemen, one of which
he is, would get along with less — some
thing like $9000.
"I know from the character of the men
who have control of the fund," he said,
"they would not draw a cent more than
we put into it."
"Don't you think they need $12,000?"
asked Supervisor Benjamin.
"No," was the reply; "I do not think
they do. lam satisfied they won't kick at
$9000. I suppose they can get some of that
as soon as we make the order."
It was so agreed, and the committee
went on to the consideration of Fire De
partment appropriations. The necessity
of several new engin-ehouses, particularly
one at Ocean Beach, was pointed out, but,
as the Supervisors desired to hear Chief
Sullivan, it was decided to postpone action
on the matter till the next meeting.
The police estimate for salaries in the
department was placed at $704,448. This
included pay for the seventy-five additional
men to oe appointed. After very little
discussion the committee agreed to it.
The item, $20,000, for the erection of a
smallpox hospital, brought out considera
ble discussion. Supervisor Taylor was in
favor of postponing the matter until other
and more important matters in the list had
been considered and fixed. Supervisor
Benjamin said it was a pressing necessity
and should be fixed at once. The City
needed a respectable retreat for those
affected with infectious diseases, the one it
had now being a disgrace. Supervisor*
Dimond and Hobbs agreed with him, and
it was finally decided to put it in the list
at $20,000, to be cut out should the necessity
Short work was made of the Board of
Education's estimate of $1,286,370 for the
public school fund. The unanimous
opinion of the Supervisors present was
against it. .
"I am not in favor of so much orna
mental education in the public schools,"
said Supervisor Benjamin.
"Let them cnt out some of the drawing
and civil engineering and that sort of
thing," said Supervisor Hobbs.
"I am in favor of the grammar and
primary schools," said Supervisor Wag
ner, "and I don't believe in university
educations in the public schools."
The Finance Committee lopped off
$236,370, taking the Auditor's estimate for
it, thus giving the Board of Education a
cool million, aside from the $45,600 it gets
from rents of school property in the City.
The Park Commissioners' estimate "for
the park improvement fund suffered a
similar unkind cut. In a communication
addressed to the Finance Committee, the
Commissioners set forth that they contem
plate improvements the coming year
which would cost $230,000. They, there
fore, asked for $365,000. After considerable
discussion it was resolved to give them
$256,000, and it was so entered.
The total of matters decided upon is as
Exempt Firemen's relief fund, 4!9OOO.
County Clerk's deputies, $126,000.
Police Department, $704,448.
Tax Collector's clerks, $40,000.
Fireman, two plumbers and a carpenter in
the hall, $3900.
License Collector's clerks, $9600.
Dupont-street widening assessment, $12,100.
Freeholders' election expenses, $8770.
Smallpox hospital, $20,000,
Horses for mounted police, their equipment
and care, $4200.
Park improvement fund, $256,000.
Public school fund, $1,000,000.
The committee adjourned to meet Fri
day evening at 7:30 o'clock.
A Meeting for That Purpose
Held at Old Manhattan
Ex- Boss Buckley's Hand Believed to
Have Instigated the
There was a meeting of Democrats at the
old Manhattan Club quarters on Bush
street last evening. Their purpose was to
reorganize the party in this City.
The understanding was that the meet
ing had been called under the auspices of
ex- Boss Christopher Buckley, who was in
this manner endeavoring to recover his
lost power over the Democratic contingent.
Mr. Buckley's hand did not overtly ap
pear in the proceedings, but there was an
undercurrent of conviction among those
present that the ex-chief was among them
in spirit, in the possible form of a guardian
The meeting last night was to be strictly
"on the quiet." P. F. Dundon presided
and Sam Newman acted as secretary. Mr.
Dundon arose ana told those assembled
whose house they were in. "But," said
he, "Buckley is a thing of the past. We
have rented the house from him and we
are here to do as we like. We owe no
allegiance to Mr. Buckley, but it behooves
the good Democrats to get together for the
purpose of reorganization. We met to
gether, I believe, at the Ides of last No
vember, then separated, but here we are
again. Now then, gemlemen, what will
you ?' '
Then there was a consultation after the
applause subsided and the meeting went
into executive session. All bands were
ordered elevated into the air which could
be raised in the faith of Buckley, and it
was astonishing to see the unanimity
with which the digits were thrust into the
air. The lieutenants of the exiled boss
were instructed to go through the districts
and reorganize the party. The orders were
issued as of old, and everybody who was
instructed promised to "deliver the goods"
at the time prescribed.
The plan of campaign as outlined was
that the Buckleyites in the district meet
at the Occidental Club, as the Manhattan
is now called, instead of being choked to
gether in the fetid atmosphere of the dis
trict halls. That Buckley is out strong for
the next battle there was no donbt among
those present, as all the old line Demo
crats swung into the column at the call.
The meeting ot the lambs adjourned to
gather once again a week from to-night.
The Buckley leaders of the Twenty
eighth Assembly District will meet in the
precincts of Manhattan Hail on the 24th
inst., the Twenty-ninth District on the
25th, the Thirtieth on the 26th, the Thirty
first some other night, the Thirty-second
on the 30th, the Thirty-third on the 31st,
the Thirty-fourth on August 1. the Thirty
fifth on August 2, the Thirty-sixth any
night, the Thirty-seventh August 5, the
Thirty-eighth August 6, the Thirty-ninth
August 7, the Fortieth August 8, the For
ty-first August 9, the Forty-second August
12, the Forty-third August 13. the Forty
fifth and Forty-sixth undecided.
"We have met," said Mr. Dundon, after
the meeting, "to effect a reorganization of
the Democratic party, and we propose to
include the best people in the various dis
"Say," said another gentleman who at
tended the meeting, "if you think that
Buckley is dead you're mistaken. See?
Say, we'll get the people who are the
people rigbt with us, and Buckley is going
to be on top."
THE COLORED PIONEERS.
A Lecture to Be Delivered on That
Subject at Bethel Church This
William H. Carter, at one time editor of
the Pacific Appeal, will give a lecture at
the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal
Church on Powell street this evening on
the subject of "The Colored Pioneers."
He was born in Portsmouth, Va., and
graduated from the New Bedford (Mass.)
High School in 1864. ' He came to Califor
nia the same year and has lived in San
Francisco since that time. He was for a
time steward of the Langham Hotel, and
has been a waiter at the Baldwin cafe for j
six years. He is an intelligent colored
man, and is deeply interested in the stand
ing and welfare of his race, especially such
part of it as dwells in this City.
Mr. Carter says there has been consider
able controversy as to who were the first
representatives of the African race who j
came to the Pacific Coast. He has ascer
tained that Charles Eppes and Sally Cox,
who came with the Panama on its first
trip, were the earliest of the colored pio
In his lecture he will give the history of
the "Archie case." Archie was a slavejwho
ran away from his master, and whose case
was tried before General O. C. Platt in the
Twelfth District Court. His defender was
the celebrated Colonel E. D. Baker. He
was acquitted and afterward went to Vic
toria, B. C. Mr. Carter says the first paper
edited by a colored man and published for
the colored population of the coast was the
Mirror of the Times, started in 1857, and
edited by L. B. Townsend. The Pacific
Appeal followed in 1862 with Peter Ander
son as editor, and then came Philip A.
Bell's venture, The Elevator, in 1865. Bell
was for a number of years dramatic critic
of the American Flag, at that time the
only Republican paper on the coast. Mr.
Carter intends to contrast the present con
dition of the negro in this City with his
condition in the past, and will give a fore
cast of the future.
The lecture will be given for the benefit
of Bethel Church.

Mrs. Green's story is that her daughter
was placed in an insane asylum near Liv

On Sunday, she says, she and Mrs. John

Mrs. Morrison came nome Monday even
