AROUND THE WATER FRONT
Produce and Wharf Men De
bate Before the Harbor
ATTORNEY FOBD'S OPINION.
The Secret Apartments In the Old
Steamer Portland Raise
Members of the Produce Exchange and
a number of warehousemen were before
the Board of Harbor Commissioners yes
terday in relation to the matter of grain
remaining on the seawall. The produce
people held that the recent change of limit
from thirty to ten days was a hardship
upon shippers and merchants and was vir
tually a tax, as it forced them to the ex
pense of drayage and storage. The ware
housemen insisted that the State, by per-

mitting grain to remain in the seawall
sheds, was virtually running a warehouse
business in opposition to them and their
Chief Wharfinger Boobar stated that
the grain space was limited, and with the
new harvest coming on the wharf could
not be practically used if clogged with
freight awaiting disposal at the pleasure of
those having it in charge.
After much discussion something like an
agreement upon a limit of five days upon
the front of the eeawall and fifteen days in
the rear was reached. The board took this
basis under consideration.
The superintendent of tugs and dredgers
was instructed to purchase all oil supplies
from the lowest bidder.
Captain Philip Brown of dredger 1 ap
peared before tbe board and asked for a
new machine. This was a startling re
quest, and President Colnon, who if any
thing is economical, hauled the mud
dredger man's demand up for examina
tion. He learned that the old dredger had
been brought to this coast by the Pacific
Mail Company in the early part of 1860 and
for over thirty years it had been industri
ously scooping out byways for commerce
all over this State. It ie now worn com
pletely out and is useless. Captain Brown
will get a new dredger.
The attorney of the board, Tirey L.
Ford, rendered his opinion yesterday on

The following is the substance of the
The act of April 1, 1872, has never been re
pealed in terms, and is, therefore, still in force,
unless it has been repealed by implication,
that is. by the enactment of some subsequent
statute inconsistent therewith. The act is, by
express terms, made applicable to both State
and County buildings and provides that the
"plans and specifications" for all such build
ings shall be obtained through competitive
olds after advertisements therefor duly pub
liehed. It is also provided that the architect
whose plans and specifications shall have
been adopted shall enter into a written un
dertaking in the penal sum of $5000 to the
effect that he will himself, if called upon so to
do, enter into a contract to construct the con
templated building for the sum named in the
advertisement calling for competitive bids for
plans and specifications. If. upon being re
quired to do so. the architect should enter into
the contract for the constinction of the con
templated building, then some other com-

employed to superintend the work of con
You further ask: "Should the cost of con
struction of the foundation for the proposed
railroad, passenger and ferry depot at the foot
of Market street, in this City, be paid ont of
the fund raised by the sale of bonds pursuant
to the provisions of the 'Ban Francisco Depot
Act,' or may such cost of construction be paid
out of the 'San Francisco Harbor Improvement
Fund' in the same manner as the cost of con
struction of other harbor improvements is so
In answer to the foregoing question I would
say that I fully concur in the conclusions
reached by the Attorney-General in relation to
the same question as set forth in his letter of
the 2d inst. to your honorable body.

The officials in remeasuring the steamer
Portland yesterday made a discovery
which demonstrated how wonderfully the
old smuggling vessel was built for her
former shady transactions. "When Chaun
cey St. John, the official measurer, and
his assistants had carefully worked their
tapelines around her forehold they came
aft and found a mystery. There was a
great discrepancy in the" interior dimen
sions that could not at first be accounted
for. After a close examination false decks
and bulkheads were found which con-
cealed a large secret apartment fitted up
with bunks for sleepers, and down near
the bottom were found secret lockers for
opium. When the Portland, then the
Haytian Republic, was strangely flitting
over Puget Sound, a few years ago, run
ning Chinese and opium across, these hid
den places were utilized. The vessel then
became famous in one of the greatest
smuggling cases of the century, and which
is yet dragging through the courts. The
discovery of this increase of carrying
capacity caused the raising of the steam
er's tonnage just 400 tons.

REBUILDING THE RUINS
The Half-Million Club Inter
ested in the Scene of the
President Henry Crocker Says the
Organization Is Very Much
Alive and at Work.
The Half-million Club is neither dead nor
sleernng. There nas Deen some talk of late
about coneolidating the organization with
the Merchants' Association, and the rumor
went abroad that the Half-million Club
has outlived its days of usefulness. To the
three or four hundred members of the
club, who have given their time and money
to the successful promotion of its objects
and purposes, these stories were anything
but agreeable, and especially so to the
president, Henry Crocker, who said yester
"I have heard the story about a sub
merging of the club's identity in the Mer
chants' Association, but I desire to state
emphatically there is nothing in the asser
tion that we are going to become anything
else than what we now are, the Half-mil
lion Club. To be sure we have not figured
largely in the papers ofllate, but that is no
indication that we are dead or at all likely
to become defunct. The club has never
undertaken any scheme since its inception
that it has not carried out successfully,
and the records will bear me out in that.
The club has also much work ahead and
its successful performance will mean much
to the City.
"Some of the labor organizations oppose
us through a misconception. They think
we want to increase the population to half
a million by bringing all kinds— all 'sorts
and conditions of men' here, and they
point to the number of unemployed
already in the City, and then condemn us
and our undertakings. We do not want to
bring any more of the unemployed class
here. We want capital, ana men with
families and moderate means.
"Now, 1 think it is.' within the purview
of the club to try to have the recently
burned district rebuilt in a substantial and
ornamental style, instead of rising from
the ashes in the shape of cheap and eye
sore shanties. Such a fire should be of
ultimate benefit to the City, and I tbink
the club should exert itself to see that the
property-owners rebuild in a manner cred
itable to the City. The subject will proba
bly come up at the meeting to be held
next Thursday. The club should move
and that quickly in the matter of inducing
owners of property on the burned district
to make that part of the City as pleasant
to the view as any other section. It can
not be done, though, if the former shan
ties and cheap structures are replaced in

AT INTERESTING ORPHAN
Mary Marzovia Brown and Her
HEE MOTHER IS AN ALEUT.
A Daughter of Captain Brown, Who
Was Lost In the Wreck of
the Mary Brown.
An interesting little orphan lives at 417
Mason street. She gravely announces that
she is of the "Brownie" family and a rela
tive of Dr. C. O. Brown, who is one of her
best friends. She is a musician of ability
and was rewarded for her brilliant playing
at the reception tendered to General
Howard in this City recently by an a la
Sherman kiss from the Christian soldier.
The little lady is 10 years old and her
name is Mary Marzovia Brown.
She is a shy little maiden with eoft,
appealing dark eyes, a clear brown skin
and lusterless brown hair. Hfr manners
are as refined and her movements as grace
ful as those of the most carefully nurtured
darling of any San Francisco home, yet
she lived until four years ago in the little
wave-washed village of Marzovia, on the
western shore of one of the Aleutian Isl
Mary is the daughter of Captain Brown,
who was lost a year ago in the wreck of
the schooner which he had named in honor
of her. Her mother is an Aleutian
whom the gallant Scotch captian married
nine years ago and who bore him three
children, of whom Mary was the oldest
and his favorite. He brought his little
half savage daughter to San Francisco a
few years ago and placed her in charge of
Mrs. H. Kolman, providing amply for her
comfort and education. The child made
remarkable progress in her studies in the
public schools. She Bhows a special apti
tude for music.
The one grief of the little girl's life was
the loss of her father, to whom she was
tenderly attached, and she is loth even yet
to give up hope that he may be found.
"Perhaps he may come in some day just
as he used to do," she says, with a hopeful
light in her big, bright eyes.
Captain Brown was a bluff sailor who
never feared the seas. "I never saw a
wave I couldn't beat," was his boast, and
the child partakes of that confidence. With
a singular improvidence he neglected to
insure his schooner, and when it was lost
the major part of his property was gone.

Mrs. Kolman is fond of the child, and
whether the former income is continued
or not will do all she can for her advance

Directors Decide on Switches and Bridge

The directors of the San Francisco and
San Joaquin Valley Railway met yester
day at 321 Market street. Their principal
work consisted of paying bills for supplies
and awarding contracts for building ma
Three California firms secured the con
tracts for switches and all necessary iron
work for bridges and switches for the first
division of the railroad. Several bids were
submitted by local manufacturers for
switches and frogs to be used in the road
as far as the Stanislaus River and the con
tract was awarded to the Risdon Iron
Works. A contract for bolts was made
with the Payne Bolt Company and
another one for castings and dnf tbolts for
trestles and bridges to the rolling-mills.
Quite a large number of bills for Bpikes,
ties and bolts were presented to the board
and they were paid. So far all the* ma
terial received by the Valley road has
been paid for in accordance with the
terms of the various contracts, which
allow liberal discounts for cash.
Everything was in readiness yesterday
at Stockton to begin construction, which,
in fact, has been under way for some little
time past, inasmuch as bridges and trestles
have been building at different places, so
that they may be finished in good season.
Thß chief engineer will next direct his
attention to the rolling stock and loco
motives, which will be needed immedi
ately in hauling rails, ties, etc., to the
front as the road goes down the valley.
AN EXECUTOK'S HONESTY.
Louis "Wans Accounts to the Court for
a Debt About Which He Alone
Louis Waas, an employe of Man, Badler
& Co., convinced Judge Slack of his hon
esty yesterday in an unusual way.
Waas has been acting as executor of
Mrs. Johanne Pauline Kuhiert's will, con
trolling an estate of $600 in bank and $1650
that Waas owed to the estate. Nobody ex
cept the executor knew of the $1650 indebt
edness, and Mrs. Kubiert, who had nomi
nated the executor in her will, told Waas
before her death that he could destroy the
notes and consider the debt paid.
Mr. Waas, however, included the notes
in his account of the estate, and yesterday
his attorneys. Hood & Hinkle, settled up
the estate and paid over the entire amount
of the money due.
In addition to that Mr. Waas waived his
claim to the executor's fees of $150, leaving
$1600 to be paid to Mrs. Kuhiert's brother
and sister, Herman Kuhiert and Mrs. Her
minie Hammam. Both of these heirs-at
law are poor.

A committee of the Manufacturers' and
Producers' Association, composed of W. F.
Bowers of the Bowers Rubber Company,
George E. Dow of the Dow Steam Pump
Company, and Robert Moore of the Risdon
Iron Works, waited on the Governor yes
terday and secured his promise, as stated.
The committee, in presenting its case,
showed a schedule of supplies purchased
for the Glen Ellen Home of Feeble
minded Children, containing in the
list many Eastern goods, such as
canned corn, starch, soap, soda, etc.,
all of which, it is claimed, could be
purchased at home at equal advantage as
in the East. When the authorities at the
home had been asked for their reason for
this they explained that only bids in com
pleted schedules were considered. As the
home bidders could not supply everything
required their bids were returned.
Governor Budd promised to remedy the
matter as far as lay in his power, and said

PASSING OF A LANDMARK
The Quaint Little Cottage on
Eddy Street Is Being
BUILT IN ST. ANNS VALLEY.
In the March of Progress the Wil
liams' Home Stood Alone
The quaint little cottage on the south
side of Eddy street, between Market and
Mason, that has stood for years out
of mind as an object of much curiosity and
as a landmark of the good old days in San
Francisco, has reached the end of its his
tory, and before another week passes will
be only a memory. The landmark will be
demolished this week to make way for the
march of progress, represented in this par
ticular case by a two-story building stretch
ing from Market street, immediately op
posite Fifth street, clear through to Eddy,
opposite the opera-house.
There is one pathetic feature in the pass
ing away of the cottage. One of its former
owners, old William Williams, who first
made it his home when a young man, lost
his reason years ago. The law declared
him an incompetent person ana the prop
erty, half of a 50-vara lot and the house,
passed into the name of Francis Williams,
his brother. But William lived on as be
fore—a harmless old man, whom the
neighbors regarded as a "crank." He
could never bear the familiarity of small
boys, or big ones for that matter, with his
front fence, nor could he brook a stranger's
visit to his home, which had become part
of himself. And so when the home and
its trees, that he had watched with singular
solicitude for so very long a time, became
estranged by the signing of a legal docu
ment, he was filled with the hallucination
that his own end was near.
"When I leave that house," he would
say to the neigh Dors, "I shall die."
And when he did move out last Friday,
greatly against his will, and took up his
abode in a strange place with his brother,
he returned to the cottage, wondering why
he was not dead. The greater part of
Saturday and Sunday he spent around the
old home, and yesterday saw him there
almost every hour in the day. He could
not understand why the materials in the
adjoining stoneyard should be carted away
with piles of old lumber from the rear of
The little house has had an interesting
history, though whatever interest may
attach to it was altogether through associa
tion. In 1856, when San Francisco proper
was a town nestling under Telegraph Hill,
and had its suburbs as far southward as
Happy Valley, now Market and Second
streets and around there, the Williamses
built their home on Eddy street. But there
was no Eddy street then, not even a trail.
The cottage was put up in St. Anns Valley,
which lay along Eddy and Ellia streets,
stretching westward toward Franklin
street. Only clusters of chaparral and
liveoak grew upon the sand dunes, though
all around the Williams house there were
ponds and marshy places. There was not
another dwelling in St. Anns Valley in
that early timeand the Williamses had to
tramp away from town over the bleak and
lonely dunes to their hermit- like abode.
Some time after the cottage was built a
garden and resort known as St. Anns
Rest were established at the corner of Eddy
and Powell streets, where St. Anns build
ing stands to-day. The Williams property,
then a full lifty-vara lot, was valued at
But such has been the change in forty
years that a fifty-vara lot on Eddy street
near the Williams cottage is worth over
The Wniiamses received a handsome sum
for their holding— more than they will
ever need in supplying their simple habits
of life. They have bought some land in
Mill Valley, where a neat cottage is to be
built, and the two aged brothers can live
in ease and comfort for the rest of their
THE GOVERNOR'S BUSY DAY.
The Chief Executive Receives at the
California— Affiliated Colleges' Mat
Governor Budd spent a busy day con
sulting with party leaders and receiving
visitors at the California Hotel yesterday.
So busy was ho that the military Board of
Location was not able to secure time for its
meeting as announced.
Five members of the Board of Regents,
Messrs. Cole, Beckett, Marye, Kellogg and
McNutt, conferred with the Chief Execu
tive concerning the use of Folsom granite
in the new building for the Associated Col
leges. A law passed by the last Legisla
ture requires that the State prisons be run
whenever possible for the benefit of the
other State institutions. As the Affiliated
Colleges is a State institution the prison
must supply the stone at the actual cost of
getting ft out. This will reduce the cost of
material from 60 to 76 per cent. It is pro
posed to bring the granite to this C ity in
huge blocks so that convict labor shall not
enter into the competition. The state
ment was made that such an arrange
ment would be perfectly satisfactory to the
» Steuart Menzies and Attorney Clemens
discussed with the Governor the briefs on
the appeal in the Gunst removal case
which were submitted to the Supreme
Court on the 6th of the month.
Chairman Field of the executive com
mittee of the Yosemite Valley Commission
called to discuss needed repairs and sup
plies and consider how pooling in stage
lines and hotels is to be" prevented. The
conference was a long one, for the Gov
ernor is thoroughly acquainted with the
valley and its needs and is determined to
stop all pooling.
I^essrs. Van Zandt and Barnett called to
pay their respects. Congressman Maguire
bad a long conference on matters of which
no hint escaped the sanctum. NedLanigan,
who is said to be the coming Democratic
boss of San Francisco, was also admitted
within the sacred precincts. Judge Daly,
the Code Commissioner from Ventura, who
has moved to this City to give all his time
to the duties of his office, was among the
visitors, as was also Dr. Mizner.
About 5 o'clock the Governor left his
room, escaped the nordeof office-seekers at
the foot of the stairs, and made his way to
a secure retreat, whence he did not again

At a meeting of the Barbers' Associa
tion held last night, H. A. Wolf in the
chair, it was reported that a shop in the
Western Addition keeps open on Sunday
afternoons. A committee of two was ap
pointed to investigate, and if evidence can
be secured to have the offender arrested
Messrs. Klitsch and Hartman were ap
pointed to till vacancies in the entertain
ment committee, which is empowered to
arrange for an entertainment and social to
be given at an early day.
One member asked what should be done
with barbers employed in clubs who shave
non-members on Sunday after 12 o'clock M.
The member was informed that if he
could fasten a case of that kind on a club
barber the association would take the
necessary steps to prosecute him.
The committee on picnic was granted a
week's time to collect all unsold tickets
and make its report.
There were a number of members who
had not attended meetings for some time,
and ex-President Klitsch stated that he
was glad to see that there is renewed in
terest in the organization and its work.
The Woods-Kent Autopsy.
An autospy on the remains of Mabel Kent
and Thomas G. Woods was held by Dr. J. S.
Barrett yesterday morning. In each instance
the bullet passed through the heart and on
measurement it was found that the superficial
wound on both bodies was not an inch apart.
As Coroner Hawkins is away on a vacation the
inquest will not be held until next week.
Those Santa Crus Bonds.
The Santa Crua bond cases have been carried
to the United States Circuit Court. The agents
for the town failed before the money was paid
over and the officials now repudiate the in
debtedness. Albert 11. White of Massachusetts
is the first to bring suit. He seeks to recover
the face value of the bonds he purchased and
$136 50 interest from April 15,1894, to April
of this year.
