"William Martin, who keeps the small
restaurant in the waiting-room of the
ferry landing at the foot of Market street,
has been bearing a double burden ever
since he located with stove and frying pan
in that out-of-the-way corner. He has
been dealing out coffee ana doughnuts to
the public and defending his cooking im
plements against the Southern Pacific

clamoring for the refusal of his petition on
the ground that it wanted the space and
that the stand would interfere with its
own eating places on the ferry steamers.
Sut the State of California evidently
thought that the Southern Pacific Com
pany, had plenty of room for all its pur
poses, and legitimate restaurant competi
tion on shore need not be killed in the in
terest of business afloat.
Ho Martin agreed to serve the ferry travel
at reasonable rates, and he was permitted
at his own expense to lit up his cookery.
But Mr. Huntineton never forgave him.
and has resented his invasion. Therailroad
people have refrained from patronizing his
lunch counter, and have in different ways
made ttfings interesting for him. They
charged him $2 a month for water, which
he is obliged to carry from the end of the
wharf to his kitchen.
When he concluded to get water else
where at a cheaper rate, they refused to let
him go down on their dock to empty his
slops in the bay. That forced him back to
the Southern Pacific faucet. He cannot
get a lower rate though he keeps a free
drinking place for the benefit of the people
who patronize the ferry-boats.
Martin one day went down on the con
crete wall to see a Commissioner, when one
of tbe gatekeepers ordered him off the
State property, saying he evidently wanted
to take something.
Martin's last-work in the service of the
public was to cet an empty room in the

IN IHE NATIONAL GUARD.
Company A of the First Does
Not Take Kindly to Its
The Third to Elect a Colonel and
the First a Lieutenant-
The transfer of Company A of the First
Regiment to the Third, in the reorganiza
tion of the National Guard, is not accepted
with very good grace by the majority of
the members of that company.
On Friday night its regular monthly
meeting was held at the First regimental
armory on Market street, and the men
who object to the change were lond in
their protests. The Third Regiment, they
said, did not have a very good name, and,
worse still, the reputation of Company C,
which the transferred company succeeds
in natfle, was far from savory. To be
known as Company "C" of the Third
Regiment, was altogether too much agony
for the proud National Guardsman to
undertake to suffer, they thought.
All sorts of motions were made, some to
refuse to obey the. order of transference,
others to disband and some to apply for
transference to some other regiment, but,
of course, none of these motions were put
to a vote. Captain Robert A. Marshall
expostulated with the men, and urged that
they accept the situation with the best
erace possible, and finally he asked all
who would stay with him to stand up.
About a score of the members stood up.
First Sergeant Newbert acquiesces in the

which one man last night slid they would

to stand a court-martial rather than
obey the order, but these threats are not
Company A was originally known as the
MacMahons, subsequently as the Mac-
Mahon Grenadiers, and later as the Tigers.
It was then an independent organization.
About 1858 It went into the National
Guard. Captain Marshall was the senior
captain of the First Regiment and is drill
master of the police force.
There is to be an election soon in the
First for lieutenant-colonel. Major George
R. Burdick succeeded Lieutenant-Colonel
Hyman P. Bush when the latter was
elected colonel, but resigned. Captain
Irving B. Cook of Company B became
major to succeed Major Burdick.
Two candidates are in the lield for the
lieutenant-colonelcy, namely, Major Charles
Jansen and ex-Captain Tilden of Com
An election will also be necessary in Com
panv B for a captain to fill the place left
vacant by Major Cook. First Lieutenant
George Filmer is now acting captain.
It is believed the Thiru Regiment will
move from the Golden Gate avenue armory
to the Market-street armory, companies B,
I) and F of the First to make that possible
by moving into the armory of the Na
tionals on Ellis street, where Companies C
and G— the Nationals— are now. If this
change of quarters is effected it will do
much to reconcile Company A to its trans
fer, it is believed.
The Third Regiment is to elect a colonel
on Wednesday night. Lieutenant-Colonel
J. C. O'Connor is said to have a clear field,
though there has been some little talk of
Major James F. Smith running against
him. It was learned last night, however,
that Major Smith would nominate Lieu
tenant-Colonel O'Connor and that the lal
ter's election would be unanimous.
Lieutenant-Colonel O'Connor enlisted in
the old "Montgomery Guard" in the latter
part of the '70's. This company afterward
became Company "A" of the Third, and
subsequently Company "D." Guardsman
O'Connor climbed up the ladder step by
step as lieutenant, captain, major and lieu
tenant-colonel. He has been second in
rank for about five years and wa3 major
for three years.
Company B of the Naval Battalion is no
more. On Friday night it met and drilled
for the last time in the armory of the Sec
ond Regiment on Page and Gough streets,
and then each man was told off to which
ever of the two remaining companies, viz.,
C and D, he desired to belong.
Company C took twenty-three and Com
pany D thirty-four, the men who had
served the longest time going to the latter.
Lieutenant C. C. Dennis was detailed to
the staff for special duty; Junior Grade
Lieutenant G. C. Calden and Ensign C. F.
Moody went to Company C and Ensign W.
F. Burke to Company D. The petty offi
cers were assigned to the companies ac
cording to their rank.
Company B had nearly $600 in its treas
ury, and on the night of the 17thinst.it
will give a farewell banquet.
TAMING FIERY STEEDS.
Professor Gleason's Kncounter With
Dixie, the Biting Stallion.
An immense crowd gathered in Central
Park yesterday afternoon on the occasion
of the farewell appearance of Professor
Oscar R. Gleason.
The princinal attraction was the profes
sor's encounter with the biting stallion
Dixie, belonging to the Arata Bros, of
Napa, in a twenty-four foot ring. A fence
about six feet high was erected in the
center of the park, and Dixie was led into
it. A few minutes the professor,
armed with a whip, and a revolver loaded
with blank cartridges, entered the ring.
When Dixie got a look at him he began
to plunge around and the professor at
tacked him with the whip. Dixie at
tempted to strike the professor with his
hind legs, but Gleason was as wary and
agile as a cat and kept out of his way.
, Whenever the stallion ran at him open
mouthed the professor fired a shot at him,
which staggered him temporarily. Finally
Dixie became convinced that he could not
scare the professor, and quietly allowed
him to pat him and place his hand in his
mouth, to the delight of the spectators.
Three other animals were made to feel
that the professor was their master, but
one of them, a little black horse, gave him
considerable trouble. It was either a trick
horse or a phenomenal kicker and plunger.
A WOMAN IN THE PULPIT.
Miss 11. M. Anderson Preaches on the
Queen of Sheba.
The pulpit of the Howard M. E. Church
was occupied yesterday by Miss H. M.
Anderson, an evangelist. The subject of
the discourse at the morning service was
"The Queen of Sheba."
Miss Anderson drew a vivid picture of
the Queen of Sheba meeting King Solomon.
She stated that the Queen had^heard a
preat deal about the wonders of the great
King Solomon. The Queen of Sheba could
hardly believe all that she heard concern
ing the wonders of this great man. It was
hardly possible that a man could be so
wise and so good as he.
"It was, I suppose," said Miss Anderson,
•'very hard for the Queen of Sheba to be
lieve the wondrous stories that bad reached
her about Solomon. She decided to go to
Solomon and search for truth. It is a pity
that the world is -not as generous as the
Queen of Sheba, and search as she did for
the gveat truths."
The subject of the evening service was
"The Scarlet Line."
Miss Anderson, assisted by a Miss Baker,
will conduct a series of revival meetings at
Antioch tnis week.

An Address by Rev. Donald M.
Ross at Metropolitan
REGARD FOR THE OLD FLAG.
The Rev. Mr. Dennett Talks About
the Necessity of Action
The 1425 seats in Metropolitan Hall were
filled yesterdav afternoon and several hun
dred people who were unable to obtain
seats stood in the side aisles. The audi
ence, composed about equally of men and
women, had assembled to listen to the
exercises given under the auspices of the
Good Citizenship Committee, and particu
larly to the address by Rev. Donald M.
Ross, pastor of the Lebanon Presbyterian
Church on "Rome's Hand in the People's
The speakers' stand was decorated with
the National emblem, and on the platform
a Jarge number of chairs were occupied by
persons prominent in the A. P. A. and
members of the Temple Choral Society.
The meeting was called to order by H. W.
Quitzow shortly after 3 o'clock, and he an
uounced the singing by the choral society
of " Marching Through Georgia." This
was followed by a prayer by the Rev. E. P.
Dennett of the Potrero M. E. Church,
whose appeal to the Almighty was for
strength and power in aid of the move
ment now being made t which he described
as not only for the Nation's aggrandize
ment, but for the welfare of the whole
"The Battle Hymn of the Remiblic,"
was sung by the "choral society, the audi
ence joining in the chorus.
The Rev. C. A. Rabing of the United
Evangelical Church, made a brief address
on the American fiag and patrioti§m. He
said that the (lag was abused when it was
displayed in front of and over ginmills
and low dives.
"The flag is honored," he said, "when it
floats over the school-houses of the coun
try, and it is never disgraced by those who
enter and leave such houses." He con
cluded by saying that the Rev. Mr. Ross
would talk of "Rome With Its Hands in
Our Pockets," and that the meaning of this
was the public treasury.
During an organ voluntary by R. W.
Lucy a collection was taken up. This was
followed by the rendition of "The Soldier
Bold," a song arranged to the airs of
Sousa's popular marches by J. W. Mc-
Kenzie Jr. It was sung by the Choral
Society and was so well rendered that it
had to be repeated.
The Rev. Mr. Ross, a tall man of pleas
ing appearance, who speaks with a
slight Scotch accent, well and forcibly,
then addressed the meeting. He declared
in the outset that his address would not
be against the Catholic religion but against
the interference of the Catholic church in
American politics, but before entering
upon his main discourse he took occasion
to charge that the Catholic church, actu
ated by mercenary motives, claimed powers
which he said it did not possess.
He detailed at length that the railroad
companies discriminates in favor of Sisters
of Charity as against women of the Salva
tion Army, and allowed them to ride free,
but compelled the Salvationists to pay ; that
employes in the departments at Washing
ton were forced to pay a portion of their
earnings to the Catholic Church, and that
more Catholics than Protestants were em
ployed in the departments at Washington,
holding that statistics showed that If the
proportion was reversed it would be about
right, as the census statistics showed that
there were not more than 7,000,000 Catholics
in the United States. He charged that in
New York, the Catholic church had ac
quired property valued at $3,500,000 with
out cost and then had been paid for per
mission to cut a street through a portion
of that property. He read a long list to
show that millions had been paid by the
State of New York for the maintenance of
He said that the fight of the A. P. A. was
not with the religion of the Catholic or
any church, and that if the Roman Cath
olic Church would draw out of politics and
keep its hands out of the public treasury
he would withdraw from the A. P. A. He
disputed the etatement recently made that
one-half of the women of San Franciseo
Speaking of one of the departments at
Washington, he said: "There are eleven
clerks in this department, eight of whom
are Catholics and three are Protestants. If
it were the other way it would be a just
proportion. The blame cannot be laid
altogether to the Catholics, but to the way
in which Protestants can be bought and
influenced. We must put down such prac
"I am an American to-day. I belong to
No. 106, A. P. A., and I have been an A. P.
A. one year, but I am not such on sec
tarian grounds, but because our organiza
tion is the only one that can keep Catholic
hands out of the politics of the country.
All that we want is that the Roman Catho
lic Church remain where it belongs."
He said the reason he drew attention to
the figures he quoted was that it was time
the people of the United States knew what
was being done with their money and
asfced : "Dare we squeal when we are be
ing trodden upon, or must we submit to
being crushed by the hierarchy? I, for
one, will not submit quietly."
He again referred to frauds in Chicago,
aud said that very soon the frauds in San
Francisco would be brought up before our
"God," he said, "has a destiny for this
Nation— to make it the advanced country
of the world, and any man or organization
that would stand iii the way of this ad
vancement would be worse than insane.
When this country had but 5,000,000 people
it moved against one of the strongest
nations of the world and it moved on to
victory and it will do so again. As Glad
stone said, this Nation is going to be the
nation of nations; it is to be the beacon by
which other nations will be guided. Un
less the people stand steadfast for the
country and the flag they may find them
selves trampled under foot. One thing I
reeret is that I do not hear the people sing
the National anthem.
'In my country (Canada), when I was
there, there never was a meeting at the
close of which the people did not sing
'God Save the Queen. Here at the close
of a meeting the people rush pellmell to
get away. They ought to remain and sing
'America.' Yes, until the last word is
The reverend gentleman concluded by
saving that a great American movement
was going on from New York to Vicksburg
and from Atlanta to the sea, and that any
thing that stood in the way would be so
trampled that it would never feel the rear
The Rev. Mr. Dennett in an impressive
speech said that as the State had an insti
tution for the detention of juvenile delin
quents, the money of the taxpayers should
not be paid for the support of delinquents
at the Magdalen Asylum. He also urged
all Americans to commence now and take
a hana in politics, so that the conventions
would not place before the voters the same
kind of tickets that had been presented in
the past. He also spoke of his devotion to
the American flag and to the country, and
closed by saying: "Be ye faithful and
true nnto death and victory is ours."
Both speakers were frequently ap
plauded, particularly when their remarks
were on the subject of patriotism. The ex
ercises cloeed with the singing of
HE ENDORSES THE CALL
Rev. Dr. Hirst on the Method
of Reporting Durrant's
He Deplores the Relish In Many
Homes for the Highly Spiced
Rev. A. C. Hirst, pastor of the Simpson
Memorial Church, voiced publicly last
evening his approval of the policy which
The Call has adopted in reporting the
Durrant case. The subject of his dis
course was the love that "thinketh no
evil" and that "rejoiceth not in iniquity."
"These words," said the preacher, "in
dicate the real genius of Christianity more
plainly than it is indicated anywhere else.
Divine love is the central force of all
things. It furnishes the only way to uni
versal agreement with God and the only
solution of the vexed problems which have
so long perplexed the souls of men. And
the ideal Christian heart is a fountain
whence flows kindness and love.
"God himself could not do anything
with this world of nis except along the
lines of parental love. There ib really no
such thing as an abstract moral govern
ment, and mere justice would result in the
annihilation of the human race. You
fathers try to build a home on the line of
absolute justice, and see what the result
will be. And yet the home is the truest
type of the world.
"I have no patience with the man or
woman who peeps or pries into the moral
lapses and soul-diseases of his fellows. A
scavenger has no accepted place in society,
but for him I have more respect than for
the social scavengers, who hunt out evil in
their fellows simply from a taste for evil.
"What would you think of a man who
paid to have the main sewer of this City
run uncovered before his home. Yet,
worse than that is being done here every
day. The great dailies — what are they?
How much of murder and rapine do they
contain ? Yet the editors are not to blame.
The reporters are not to blame one half as
much as you who indorse this thing — as
the respectable and Christian peop'e who
have a relish for that filth, and you do
relish it. Do you suppose the papers
would print it otherwise? No, these ed
itors know you better than you know your
selves. It is their business to knowyou,
and they realize that this sort of thing
would be impossible if there were not a
relish for it in otherwise respectable and
"If you should go into the editorial
rooms of these papers and find posted over
the door 'Thinketh no evil,' you would
think the millenium at hand. But all
honor to that paper which has already
started out on tb'at line ! All honor to the
editor of The Call for his editorial the
other day on the line I have indicated, for
which I personally called to thank him.
Would that the other papers would adopt
that policy,- for then indeed would the filth
of our courtrooms not be displayed before
the younsr of our land."
THE PIONEER JEWELER.
To-Day the Mortal Kemalns of Henry
M. Lewis Will Be Laid to
The funeral oi Henry M. Lewis, the
pioneer jeweler and watchmaker of San
Franci&co, whose death was noticed in
Sunday's issue of The Call, will take
place this afternoon at 1 o'clock from
Pioneer Hall. The interment will be in
the Hills of Eternity Cemetery in San
Mateo County, and it will be private.
The death of Mr. Lewis, though not un
expected, was very sudden. He was suffer
ing from fatty degeneration of the heart.
On Saturday he had rallied a little and
was talking to his wife, when he called for
his watch. It was handed to him, and
after he ascertained the time of day he
started to wind the watch, but before that
operation was completed the color forsook
his face, his hands dropped by his side and
his head fell back on his pillow.
Mr. Lewis came to this citv on the bark
Matilda in company with Colonel A. W.
von Schmidt, the well-known civil engi
neer, and others, in April, 1849. The only
survivor of the passengers by that vessel is
Colonel von Schmidt. Soon after reaching
here Mr. Lewis, who was a practical Jeweler
and watchmaker, started in business on
the site of the store he occupied up to the
time of his death. Like many of the other
old pioneers, he suffered losses by the great
fires in the early fifties, but he always re
established himself at the old stand and
pointed with pride to his sign, "The Pio
neer Jeweler and Watchmaker." Finally
he purchased the ground, upon which he
built the brick house where he died. He
had for a neighboring structure the large
building on tne southeast corner of Clay
and Kearny, in which, on the ground
floor, was Key's Clothing Emporium,
then the most "famous clothing-house in
the city. On the upper floor was Ford's
daguerrean gallery. This was before the
days of the ambrotype and of the photo
When Mr. Lewis started in business the
charge was $10 for cleaning a watch and a
like amount for replacing a broken main
spring—if there was one in his stock to
fit. A watch crystal cost $1. Then in the
jewelry line the only things in demand
were those that were attractive. The
furore in the early days was what
was known as the specimen pin for men
and brooches for women. Fantastic pieces
of pure native gold were mounted as scarf
pins, while smaller pieces were joined to
§ ether and worked into brooches. Every
ody had one or more of these, and every
body sent one or more East or to Europe
to relatives and friends. In making these
Mr. Lewis realized a great deal of money,
for the charges were high, though the
material was plentiful. Mr. Lewis was al
ways a business man, and never moved
from the place in which be first located.
Besides his widow and daughter he leaves
a brother, who has been in mercantile
business for many years.
IN HONOR OF THE SAINTS.
Special Services Held at St.
Ignatius and St. Dominic's
HIGH MASSES CELEBRATED.
Father Netterville Tells of the Life
and Work of the First Do
The feasts of St. Ignatius and St. Dom
inie were celebrated yesterday in the two
churches dedicated to them in thiß City.
In St. Ignatius Church, on Hayes street,
the founder of the Society of Jesus was
honored with a solemn and magnificent
commemoration. The main altar was
made beautiful with roses and fine ferns,
the altar of the Blessed Virgin Mary
with white lilacs, white chrysanthemums,
white sweet peas and ferns; St. Joseph's
altar with pink chrysanthemums, pink
Duchesse de Brabant roses and ferns; St.
Aloysius altar, perle des jardins roses, La
France roses and ferns ; Sacred Heart altar,
pink and white lilies, ferns and cocoa
Solemn high mass was celebrated at 10:30
o'clock, when the church waß densely
crowded. Father Calzia, S.J., was cele
brant, and Rev. Mr. Butler, S.J., master
of ceremonies. The male choir of 100 voices
of St. Ignatius Church rendered the mass
by Fauconior-Battista, together with ''Ecce
Panis" and "Jesu Dulcis Memoria" of
Rigo, with organ and orchestral accom
paniment. In the evening at 7:30 o'clock
there were solemn vespers and benedic
tion, at which Giorza's vespers, "Cor Jesu
Flagrans," "Moriconi" and "Tantum
Ergo," by Donizetti, were sung by the
male choir. The soloists for both services
were Messrs. Jones, Morrissey, Mills and
Father Maher, 0.P., preached a sermon
enlogistic of the saint and his Jife's wbrk.
The Dominican Fathers of St. Dominic's,
corner of Bush and Steiner streets, com
memorated the birth of their patron saint
with fitting ceremonies. The life and works
of this good man, his arduous labors in the
cause of religion, and his many personal
sacrifices during a Jong period of devout
and faithful service were reviewed by
Father Nettervillc in an eloquent sermon
delivered to a large congregation. The
church was beautifully decorated with
palms, ferns and evergreen wreaths, while
banks of flowers lay in great profusion
about the altar rail.
The services opened at 10 :30 a. m. with
a solemn high mass, the celebrant being
Father Harrington. He was assisted by
Father Dyson as deacon and Father Brun
Father Wyman of the Paulist3 and
Father Hickey, S.J., officiated in the
sanctuary. Instrumental music of a high
order was furnished by volunteers from
the church, and the chorus was made up
of Miss Price, Miss Lawlor, Miss Gleason,
Miss Shannon, Miss Hickey and others.
Miss Emma Desmond was the organist.
The sermon of Father Netterville, 0.P.,
dealing with the early life of the founder
of the order, and the remarkable growth of
the order itself, was full of interest and
forcible illustration. The speaker told of
the, founding of the Dominican Order in
the thirteenth century by St. Dominic,
and of its subsequent growth until the
organization reached out over all the world.
Though small in membership, when
compared with certain other orders of the
church, the Dominicans have always been
distinguished for devout lives and scholarly
attainments. Some of the most learned
men in the church have come from this or
der, which has given to the world three
Popes, a dozen Cardinals, as many Bishops
and many canonized saints.
Saint Dominic was nearly through with
a long life of labor in the church when he
conceived the idea of organizing this great
order which bears his name. The work of
his life, a labor for which he seems to have
been specially designed by Providence,
was the conversion of "the heretical
Albigenses in Southern France and North
ern Italy. For seventeen years, often at
the peril of his life and at all times sur
rounded by the menace of dire poverty, he
taught the the truths of Christianity to
these benighted people, never ceasing from
the task laid out"for himself in early life
until the last traces of heresy had disap
peared. Then he retired to the monastery
of St. Augustine and there consummated
his plans for the order.

BODY POUND ON THE SHORE.
A Question Whether Death Was Acci
dental or a Suicide.
An unknown man about 35 years of age
was found dead on the beach, south of the
tunnel of the Cliff House and Ferries
steamcar line, at 2:30 o'clock yesterday.
Whether the man's death was accidental
or a |case of suicide is a matter of con
jecture with the officers in the Coroner's
A. L. Shell of 5034 Third street and L. W.
Clark of 612 Buchanan street were walking
along the shore looking for a good place to
fish when they discovered the body lying
face down on a little strip of beach at the
foot of the hign cliffs. The shore at that
place is rough and broken and sharp rocks
extend from the cliff far into the water.
The men hastened to town and informed
the Coroner. It was impossible to get
within half a mile of the corpse with the
Deputy O'Brien, with the assistance of
five men, worked for several hours drag
ging the body up the face of the high cliff.
An examination of the body showed that
the mau was about 35 years old. He had
blue eyes, a short brown mustache, black
hair, thin on top of the head. The man
was dressed in a neat black suit of clothes,
white shirt and white underwear. Strange
to say his shoes and stockings wore no
where to be found. On the man's head
were half a dozen deap cuts, and there
were two others on the temples. These
were probably caused by the body being
washed against the rocks.
Tne palms of the man's hands are so
soft that it is evident he was not a laborer.
The fact that his shoes were removed
gives rise to the belief that he was wading
and was knocked down ,by a breaker and
killed before he could recover himself.
The only property in his possession was
