THE TARIFF ON LUMBER
Pacific Coast Manufacturers
Agree With the Board
of Appraisers.
A VERY CLOSE DISTINCTION.
The Written Conclusions of the
Meeting: to Be Circulated
for Signatures.
Representatives of some thirty lumber
manufacturing linns met at the office of
the Pacific Pine Lumber Company, at the
corner of Market and Main streets yester
day afternoon to take action upon the
recent construction placed upon the Wil
son tariff act by the Collector of the Port
at Ogdensburg, N. V., and its indorsement
by John H. Wise, Collector of the Port
here. The sense of the meeting was an in
dorsement of the decision.
The meeting was presided over by E. M.
Herrick and participated in by such tirrns
as the following named: Moore & Smith
Lumber Company, Renton, Holmes &
Co., Preston & McKinnon, S. H. Harmon
Lumber Company, George D. Gray, E. B.
Dean & Co., S. E. Slade Lumber Company
and E. K. Wood Lumber Company.
The question at issue arose upon a ship
ment of Canada flooring, which was as
sessed an ad valorem duty of 20 per cent
on the ground that the material was
classed as manufacture. The consignee
protested, claiming that flooring should
be admitted free under the provisions of
paragraph, 676 of the Wilson bill, which
admits free of duty "lumber, rough or
dressed." An appeal has been taken to the
Circuit Court of New York and will be
heard on the 24th inst.
The fact that pine and spruce clapboards
are specifically mentioned as being free of
duty lent color to the idea that flooring
and other finished materials should be ad
mitted free.
The construction of the law by the Col
lector of the Port at Ogdensburg will affect
importers very materially, as they rely
for their margins upon the free admission
of dressed lumber with the rough, but the
demand for "dressed" lumber under this
construction is not sufficient to Make im
portation profitable.
The following conclusion, reached by the
lumber manufacturers' meeting yesterday,
conveys the distinction and difference be
tween dressed lumber and manufactures,
and the paper will be circulated among the
dealers of the Pacific Coast for signatures
and then be presented to Collector Wise :
On submission of the question raised by the
recent ruling of the Board of General Apprais
ers in the matter of the importation of lumber
from Canada at Ogdensburg, N". V., establish
ing the line of demarcation between dressed
lumber and manufactures of wood, submitted
to the following named lumber manufacturers
represented at San Francisco, each and all of
them unhesitatingly and unequivocally con
firms the logic of said ruling, and most point
edly contends and claims that any other con
struction would be at the greatest variance
with common-senie and the universal interpre
tation of the lumber trade upon this sub
ject: * * *
The contention that the rough lumber is in
itself a manufactured article is not supported
by common-sense, the understanding of the
trade on the tariff law as a whole, either spe
cifically or by implication, there appearing
throughout a distinction between the article
itself and manufactures of such articles, as in
the case of metals aud manufactures of metals,
wool and manufactures of wool, as well as
wood and the manufactures of wood, all of the
same beini? deemed raw material up to a point
at -which their conversion into an article for
definite use and thereafter being denominated
manufactures.
Asunder paragraphs 677 and 6/8 pine clap
boards and spruce clapboards respectively are
placed upon the free list, being manufactures
of wood as much as flooring, ceiling, wainscot
ing, there is but one inference to be drawn
from the law itself, that is, had the framers in
tended to admit free flooring, ceiling, etc.,
manufactured for definite uses, such articles
•would also have been specifically included in
the free list similarly to pine and spruce clap
boards, which, on this coast, are beveled,
dressed and jointed.
Reference to paragraph 684 clearly deter
mines the distinction between unmanufactured
and manufactured wood, while under para
graph 683 is a specific reference to wood un
manufactured, ana the conclusion is unavoid
able that in the wood schedule under the free
list no manufactured wood was intended ex
cept those items particularly specified; and
taking such conclusion in connection with
paragraph 181 under the dutiable list which
specifically states: "That manufactures of
■wood, or "of which wood is the component
material or chief value, not specially pro
vided for in this act, snail be assessed at 25 per
cent ad valorem," it is to be repeated that any
other ruling than that arrived at by the Board
of General Appraisers is clearly and positively
in violation of the tariff law, whether based
upon the language of the act or on the univer
sal understanding of the lumber trade and for
Buch reasons such rulings should De unequivo
cally sustained.
A LODGING-HOUSE CASE.
Mrs. May Johns Has Mrs. Maggie God-
shall Arrested.
Mrs. Maggie Godshall, keeper of the
lodging-house 36}£ Geary street, was ar
rested yesterday on a warrant charging her
with obtaining goods by false pretenses.
The complaining witness is Mrs. May
Johns, keener of the lodging-house 502
O'Farrell street. Mrs. Godshall conducted
both lodging-houses, but about a month
ago she sold out the O'Farreli-street house
to Mrs. Johns.
Mrs. Johns in her complaint alleges that
Mrs. Godshall represented to her that the
furniture in the lodging-house was worth
f ISOO, whereaa it was not worth $300, and
that the income was falsely stated to her.
Sne paid Mrs. Godshall $650 cash and gave
her a chattel mortgage for $275.
Mrs. Godshall denies that she overstated
the value of the furniture or the income
OUT FOR A SPIN?
The weather is glorious, and really there is nothing
more inspiriting in the world than a run on one's wheel.
But you mustn't overdo it, you know. Moderation is
good in everything, and if you feel the least bit faint after
your run it is a sign of there being something a trifle
wrong with your system. This may be remedied, though,
by taking a little of DR. HENLEY'S Celery, Beef and
Iron either during the run or after. Indeed, at both
times it will do you good. Every bicyclist should take it
with him as certainly as he takes his wrench. It will
build up your nerves, strengthen your stomach and enrich
your blood. If you do not use it get a supply at once.
IT'S A GRAND THING!
NOTE. — The contest for cycling poems cannot be
decided for ten days.
from the roomers. Mrs. Johns thoroughly
examined the place before purchasing it,
and was shown the books, and knew ex
actly the true position of matters. If she
was not able to run the lodging-house to
make it pay it was her own fault. Mrs.
Godshall blames a former housekeeper for
instigating the proceedings against her.
She was released on bonds.
THE TRACKS PULLED UP.
Removing Rails From the Site of the
Midwinter Fair in Golden
Gate Park.
All the rails of the Southern Pacific Rail
road Company and all the ties on which
they rested in Golden Gate Park north of
the south drive are being taken up. A
gang of men with pinchbars were at work
yesterday tearing up and loading them
on small construction flatcars for trans-
portation south of the south drive. The
work was commenced on the track that
ran alongside of where the Machinery Hall
stood. In a few days all the rails will
have disappeared from that portion of the
fark on which was built the Midwinter
"air city.
A new deer from Placerville, received
yesterday, was placed in the glen, where
it became one of the happy family of elks,
deer, kangaroos and othei animals.
A broad layer of large rocks Las been
laid in front of the north side of the deer
glen and of the bear cage, to prevent those
in vehicles from driving up too close to
the fences and interfering with the foot
passengers. The space between these
rocks has been filled with loam and planted
with flowering plants. This now affords a
protection that those who visit the glen
will appreciate.
The statue of Francis Scott Key, which
had become covered with moss, had a
scaffolding around it yesterday, and a
couple of men with brushes, soap, sponges
and water were busy giving the author of
the "Star-spangled Banner" a good wash
ing down.
The foundation for the lodge is complete
and is now ready to receive the first course
of blue rock, of which the structure will be
built.
A BIG YACHTING EVENT
The Sappho Wants to Race the
Queen Over the Corin
thian Course.
The Contest Would Show the Sail
ing Qualities of the Two
Crack Boats.
Yachting circles are now agog over a con
templated race between the Sappho and
the Queen. The latter captured the cup in
the regatta of the Ban Francisco Yacht
Club on Sunday, and, while no regrets are
expressed for her masterly conduct and
good luck, there are a few sailors on the
Sappho who would like to sail her against
Morrell's craft.
"I am glad that the Queen won," said
ex-Commodore McCarthy, who sailed the
Sappho on Sunday, "but I don't think the
race was a fair one for the Sappho. Not
that I mean to say that everything was not
fair as regards the race, but i think that
another course could be selected which
would bring out the merits of the two
boats. For instance, we ran into a calm
streak, and before we got out of it the
Queen was right on top of us. She got the
wind as soon as we did and was not
hindered for lack of wind. Give us a good
open course with all sorts of weather, say
for a run of twenty-five miles, and we'll
show you a race worth seeing."
"The San Francisco Yacht Club course,"
said another member of the Sappho's
crew, ''is a good one for pretty sailing and
exhibitions, but it does not bring out the
stuff in the boats. Put the Sappho and the
Queen on the Corinthian course and we'll
get one of the prettiest races ever seen on
the bay."
A race between the two well-known
yachts woula create the greatest interest
among the local yachtsmen, and it is in
the order of things that it may be con
summated. Before the wind the Queen
would have little chance, but she does
wonders in windward work, and yet the
Sappho's crew pride themselves on being
able to give the Queen points on beating.
"I will give the Sappho a race," said
Charles H. Marrell, owner of the Queen,
yesterday afternoon, "and the course I
would like would be o\er the Corinthian
course. Let them challenge me and I will
accept. That course, though, would not
be twenty-seven miles. Still, the longer
they make the race the better I am satis
fied."
The Corinthian course starts from an
imaginary line drawn out from Meiggs
wharf, around Presidio shoal buoy, thence
around a stakeboat at Southampton shoal,
thence around Presidio shoal buoy and
home to Meiggs wharf.
The performance of the JEolus on Sun
day has excited considerable comment,
and the yachtsmen are trying to get up a
race between her and the Truant. The
latter was not in the regatta, but she has
never made as good a showing with the
Queen as did the .Solus. '
The maneuvering of the Queen on Sun
day off Shag Rock cost her owner consider
able expense for repairs. It seems that
after her topmast went the main boom
flew up in the air and the mainsail was
"goose-winged." The gaff was on one
side of the mast and the boom was on the
other. Morrell gave up the race and
i thought that there was nothing to be
I done but clear away the wreckage and
j square away for home. Ed Howard, in
his cool, quiet way, suggested that the
broken stick be cut away and the topsail
housed. "We won't need the light sails
after we round the rock," he said. "All
we need are the working sails.''
Shag Rock was just barely cleared, the
i backwater saving the Queen, and two
I minutes later she was in the race with the
j best of them.
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 1895.
A BULLET IN HIS BRAIN
Kurd Martens Attempts to
Commit Suicide, With
Probable Success.
THE DEED ASCRIBED TO DRINK.
He Was One of Three Prospective
Heirs to a Valuable Estate
tn Germany.
Kurd Martens, a member 'of a wealthy
German family, fatally shot himself in a
toilet-room of the saloon, 533 Sacramento
street, yesterday morning.
His father was the principal partner in
the firm of Carl Martens & Co., known
throughout the German empire. His
father died recently and left an estate
valued at 3,000,000 marks, and Kurd was
one of the three prospective heirs. Since
his father's death he has been receiving an
allowance of $300 per month from his
mother, pending the settlement of his
father's estate.
Kurd studied medicine and received his
diploma as a surgeon and physician in
Germany. Afterward he got tired of a
citizen's life and obtained a commission as
lieutenant in the German Army.
He had not been long in this City when
he fell in love with one of the daughters of
Mrs. F. Rose, proprietress of the National
Hotel, 512 Bush street, and they were
married in February last. The young
couple took up their residence in Fruitvale.
"Yesterday morning they came to the
City together, and Mrs. Martens went to
her motner's hotel on Bush street, while
her husband called upon his brother-in
law, Adolph Trefz, saloon-keeper, 533 Sac
ramento street. When he entered the
saloon he called for a glass of wine. He
had been drinking heavily for several days
and was under the influence of liquor at
the time.
His brother-in-law urged him not to
drink any more, but to go to Bush street
and join his wife. He refused, and Trefz
left the saloon to go for Mrs. Martens.
After he had gone he again called for a
glass of wine, and it was served to him.
He drank the wine, and, without saying
anything, went to the toilet-room in the
rear. A moment later the people in the
saloon were startled by the report of a
pistol. Several men rushed into the room
and found Martens on the floor with blood
pouring from a gaping wound close to his
right ear. A 32-caliber Harrington &
Richardson revolver was clasped in his
right hand.
It was at first thought that he was dead
and the Coroner's office was notified, but
when the Morgue wagon reached the place
the ambulance had been there and Martens
had been taken to the Receiving Hospital,
as it was discovered that life was not ex
tinct.
Drs. Berry and Mays promptly attended
to the wounded man. They found he had
placed the muzzle of the revolver in the
aperture of the right ear and pulled the
trigger, the bullet lodging in his brain.
The doctors expressed the opinion that he
could not recover.
When Trefz and Mrs. Martens reached
the saloon they learned of the shooting and
that Martens had been taken to the hos
pital. They returned to the National Ho
tel, and accompanied by Mrs. Rose and an
attorney hurried to the hospital with the
intention of inducing Martens to make his
will, but they found him unconscious.
When the young wife saw her husband
she was frantic with grief and a pathetic
scene followed. She threw lierseif upon
his unconscious body and amid her sobs
implored him in piteous tones to speak to
her. She was led away, weeping bitterly,
by her mother and brother.
No reason could be assigned for the rash
act unless Martens had become tempo
rarily insane from over-indulgence in
drink.
It was learned last night that Martens
had been previously married, but was
divorced from his wife in New York. His
present wife is only 16 years of age.
GAME AND THE GAME LAWS
Counties That the General
Law Will Not Affect in
Any Way.
Where Ordinances Passed by
Supervisors Must Still Be Ob
served by Deer-Hunters.
The many twists and turns in the State
game law in reference to the closing and
opening dates of the game season have
been a puzzle to many sportsmen. H. T.
Payne of Field Sports had a very interest^
ing interview recently with an assistant of
the Attorney-General, and from that gen
tleman he gleaned information which will
prove of much interest to sportsmen and
also to the Supervisors of the counties of
the State.
Tt is a general belief that deer can be
killed in any of the counties between July
15 and October 15, excepting in such coun
ties where the Supervisors have shortened
the time for the killing oi deer to please
the wishes of the sportsmen of their re
spective localities. The State law provides
that it shall be unlawful to kill male deer
between the 15th day of October and the
15th day of July and repeals all laws or
ordinances in conflict therewith, but only
such as are in conflict. It will therefore
be seen that any ordinance passed by the
Boards of Supervisors of the several coun
ties of the State that is not in conflict
with the State law is not repealed. It
must therefore be remembered that the
State law provides that it shall be unlaw
ful to kill deer between October 15 and
July 15. not that it shall be lawful to kill
between July 15 and October 15. The Su
pervisors therefore have the authority to
say that it shall also be unlawful to kill
deer at any other time between July 15
and October 15.
The new game law repealed only such
acts and parts of acts as were in conflict
with it. Section 29J^ of the county gov
ernment act gives the Supervisors power
to pass ordinances for the protection of
game and lish and that power has not
Been taken from them any further than to
prevent a conflict with the State law.
All ordinances passed by the Supervisors
a year ago or since that provide for an open
season on deer whose limits are within the
three months between the 15th of July and
the 15th of October, and have not been re
pealed by the board, are not in conflict
with the general law, and are consequently
still in force. The county ordinances that
are still in force are:
Contra Costa— Jnly 20 to September 2.
Los Angeles, Marin, Monterey, Ban Mateo,
Shasta and Ventura — July 15 to September 1.
Sonoma— July 25 to September 5.
San Benito, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz —
August 1 to September 15.
Lake — August 1 to October 1.
Colusa, Glenn and Orange— August 15 to
October 1.
Amador and San Joaquin— September 1 to
October 1.
In other counties where ordinances have
been passed either the opening dates have
been set previous to July 15 or the closing
dates later than October 15. Such or
dinances have been repealed by the general
law. The ordinance in Mendocino County
prohibiting the killing of deer until August
'.!5, 1895, is of course in force unless it has
been repealed this year, and if so the pres
ent season in that county will be from Au
gust 25 to October 15.
Sportsmen who have not had an oppor
tunity aa yet to scour the mountain, jungles
for deer are wondering what has become of
the many Hunters who left this City last
Sunday for the haunts of big game. It is
presumed that the hunters are all safe,
but their friends cannot understand the
meaning of the delay in the arrival of the
carcasses of the noble four-pronged bucks
that were promised and guaranteed to be
in this City by last evening.
C. B. Gilman and W. F. Gunn are now
camped near Weaverville, and a letter re
ceived from Mr. Gilman states that all
kinds of game is plentiful and trout
lishing first class.
S. Mack of the Pacific Kennel Club re
turned yesterday with a four-pronged
buck which he killed near the head
waters of Eel River.
J. Reynolds and Detective Harper are in
charge of a large camping party which is
at present located about fourteen miles
east of Ukiah in the heart of a great deer
country. Venison steaks from that lo
cality are daily expected.
C. M. Osborn, T. R. Barney, G. Wickes
and W. D. Brown have been pumping
lead at deer in canyons of the Tamalpais
Club since Monday morning. Either the
monarchs must be very scarce in the pre
serves this year or otherwise the hunters
are off their aim, as the color of a Tam
alpais buck has not as yet made its appear
ance on this side of the water.
The mosquitoes that took the Novato
hills by storm, so to speak, on the opening
day of the deer-shooting season last year
drove many an enthusiastic sportsman off
hi^ beat. In anticipation of such another
warm reception from the musical pirates
of the hills, several deer-hunters went into
the mountains on Monday well prepared
to defeat the aims of the enemy by
placing smail-meshed nets over their heads
and oilinc their hands with some prepara
tion which some people said was offensive
to mosquitoss. There was no necessity for
armor of any kind, however, as the blood
thirsty snip"c of the Novato Mountains
have not as yet made their summer ap
pearance in any great numbers. Yet it
needs only a few of them to make life mis
erable for a city sportsman, whose blood
is highly prized "by the country mosquito.
The greatest noise heard in many
moons startled the good residents of
Novato, Marin County, about 7 o'clock
on Monday morning, but notwithstanding
the volume of smoke that hung on the
hills and the loss of several tons of lead
not one single trophy of the chase returned
to Novato that evening. Among "the
noted" marksmen who scared the very
existence out of several deer were Dr.
Leonard, .7. C. Nealon, J. Sutton, H. Lu
cas, J. Miller, J. Valencia and Messrs.
Lynch and O'Neil. The farmers in the
vicinity of where the skirmishers were sta
tioned for big game are congratulating
themselves because of having their cattle
driven off the range last Sunday. Messrs.
Ladd and Mcßae, who shot on the Pacheco
ranges, succeeded in bagging a beautiful
buck.
Samuel F. Hughes is the proud possessor
of a kennel of nine puppies, out of his
favorite English setter, Silver Plate, a win
ner of bench-show honors. The father of
the youngsters is the well-known English
setter Starlieht. The little fellows are
highly admired by lovers of sportine dogs.
C. F. Mullins and his sister, Miss Alice
Mullins, caught, in a day and a half, ang
ling in the Country Club's lakes, twelve
Eastern, eight cut-throat and two rainbow
trout. The fishes averaged in weight IJ^
pounds, the largest of the Eastern tipping
the scales at 1% pounds.
CHINESE NATIVE SONS
Seven of Them Now on the
Steamer Gaelic Are Said
to Be Frauds.
Their Pictures Are Affixed to the
Custom-House Records of
Other Men.
Collector Wise is busily engaged in look
ing into the cases of Chinese native sons
on the Occidental and Oriental Company's
steamer Gaelic. While he is satisfied that
there is no "ring" working in California
or anywhere else, still it is very evident
that some one is using the "native son"
bait in order to catch unwary Chinese.
There are twelve Celestials on the Gaelic
who claim to be "native sons," and out of
these there are seven whose records do not
agree with those in the Custom-house.
The other five say they were born in Los
Angeles, but the chances are that they also
are frauds, and with the other seven will
be sent back. Collector Wise will not
begin his investigation until to-morrow,
but the evidence is all in and a number of
people will be called upon to explain their
connection with the deal. Among the
latter will be Ed Dufh'eld, an ex-clerk in
the law office of A. H. Ricketts and at one
time a police court clerk. No charge
against the latter will hold, however, as he
is supposed to have simply copied the
records of the Custom-house, and the Chi
nese did the rest.
The manner in which the scheme was
worked is very simple. In the days when
"prior residents" were allowed to land and
the courts were kept busy passing upon
the merits of each case, a large number of
"native sons" were landed. The proof of
each one's claim and also their pictures
were introduced in evidence and became a
record of the Custom-house. Whenever a
Chinese born in California wanted to visit
his fathers' country he, therefore, was
anxious to secure a copy of the papers that
proved his rieht to citizenship. These
copies have beer, multiplied by tne dozen,
but in every instance the photograph of
the man who sought to re-enter the United
States and not that of the real "native
son" appeared on the copy. This is the
predicament in which the seven frauds on
the Gaelic are placed, and the Collector
will do nothing in their cases until he can
ascertain whether there is any means of
bringing the white men to justice who en
gineered the plot.
"It was a bungling affair," said Collector
Wise, "and no one but the Chinese will
suffer. The pictures are not a bit alike, so
of course we will have to send back the
men. If by hook or by crook I can reach
the men who engineered the job I will do
so, but I am afraid that, as there is no for
gery, I cannot touch them. ''Native sons"
in future will have to bring conclusive
proof of their birthplace before I land
them."

LEVINGSTON WITHDRAWS
Dr. Mizner Will Probably Be
the Next Health
Officer.
THE CIVIC FEDERATION WINS.
Dr. Potts, Backed by Barney Mur
phy of San Jose, to Be Quar
antine Officer.
Dr. Levingston has retired from the fight
for the position of Health Officer. He has
agreed to step down and out and to ask
nothing for himself at present on condi
tion that his immediate personal friends
are taken care of.
This action is a result of the bitter per
sonal fight which has been made against
his appointment, though the direct cause
for it has been the doctor's desire to re
lieve the Governor, who is under many
obligations of friendship to him, from em
barrassment.
Under the changed aspect of affairs Dr.
Mizner, Levingston's partner and fidus
Achates, who was formerly a candidate for
Quarantine Ofhcer, is said to be slated for
the Health Office. He admitted yesterday
that he was a candidate, and the admis
sion is regarded as confirmatory of the
statement of Levingston's withdrawal, as
the two are too close together to be both
candidates for the same office. Besides,
Mizner carries with him the whole weight
of the Levingston influence.
The office of Quarantine Officer will, it is
said, go to Dr. Potts of San Jose. A tele
gram was received last night from that
city which stated that he had been defin
itely promised the appointment. His
backers in his candidacy have been Harney
Murphy of San Jose and several other
close friends of the chief executive.
The Governor has decided to keep hrs
hands off the appointments to the Board
of Health.
"I shall write no letters to the board,"
he said yesterday, "nor shall I make any
recommendations. I have selected four
gentlemen who are thoroughly acquainted
with the needs of the City and with the
people of San Francisco. If the board asks
me to make any suggestions I shall prob
ably make them, but not otherwise. In
any case my suggestions would be merely
political ones."
