This is distinctly the age of hero-worship.

English-speaking world resolutions and
coin keep pouring in, and while, in the
face of conflicting reports, it is impossible
to estimate the ultimate size of the tes
timonial fund, it is safe to predict that it

In thi3 connection the following letter
sent to Grace by the Prince of Wales will
be of interest to all cricketers:

pear Sir: The Prince of Wales has watched
with much interest the fine scores which you
continue to make in the great matches this
year. He now learns that you have beaten all
former records by scoring 1000 runs during
the first month of the cricket season as well as
completing more than 100 centuries in rirst
class matches.
His Royal Highness cannot allow an event
of such deep interest to all lovers of our great
national game to pass unnoticed by him, and
he has desired me to offer his hearty congratu

remain, dear sir, yours truly.

SACRAMENTO SPORTING.
Practicing: for the Sportsmen's
Tournament— Tennis and Wheel.
BACKAMENTO, Cal., Aug. 30.— Sacramento
sporting circles are making gTeat preparations
for the coming tournament of the State Sports
men's Association, to be held at Agricultural
Park on September 4. 5, 6 and 7, and every
evidence Las been adduced going to prove that
it will be the greatest affair of a line nature
ev«r held in the State. A delegation of twenty
of the best shots of Southern California will be
present, and will endeavor to convey the
various trophies to the land of cactus and
orange blossoms, and San Francisco will also
be represented. The Kay diamond medal,
which is to be competed for, is on exhibition
at Eckhardt'agunstore in this city, and is at
tracting great attention, end there is no doubt
that the entrance money will net the present
possesser of the trophy, Martinez Chick, at
feast S2OO. At last Sunday's shoot of the Peli
can Club, Game Commissioner James Morrison
walked off with the medal, killing 19 out of
20; the birds were fully matured and flew
strong, yet the percentage of scores were the
best of the season, being 18 per cent with
nearly twenty entries.
j Doves are getting scarce, and being fat and
iT.-ong are iiying hard. Messrs. Eckhardt,
Xielm, J. Bruner and Crackwell, in their recent
trip to CenterTille, bagged 105 of the blue
eireake in a day's shoot. Uame Warden Helm
reports more game in Sacramento County this
year than has been known in years, and is fully
borne out in his statement by all local shoti
who have been out prospecting for doves. Hun
dreds of mallard and teal can be found on the
sloughs near the city limits, and are bo tame
that the report of a gun fails to start them to
wing, and Helm reports navlng seen an enor
mous number of spotted-breast hawks this sea
son during one of his trips along the Cosum
nes River; he saw two flocks of these game-de
stroyers in all containing at least sixty hawks.
One flock of thirty-five were hovering over a
beavy of email that were in the willows along
the river bank. Helm threw his gun together
and killed six out of the flock before they left
the vicinity. He claims that in all his many
years' experience in forest and field he never
paw hawks consorting in flocks before, and in
such numbers.
The salmon run of the past week has been
the largest of the season and the boats have
made money and are Improving every hour, aa
the season closes on August 31.
George Chapman and J. Shilling, who have
been making Sunday raids on the trout streams
near Cisco, killed thirty-five and thirty-six
Dolly Varden trout last Sunday.
The road members of the Capital City Wheel
men's Club made the run to Folsom last Sun
day, twenty-two miles and return, with over
twenty participants. The club is well on the
road to prosperity.
Miss Crocker, Elliott, Hursh and Upson.some
of Sacramento s crack wheelmen, weie in at
tendance during the meets of the Pacific Cy
clists at Dixon and Woodland. They report the
circuit riders as meeting with favor all over
the State, and honors are being divided very
evenly.
The'EastPark Association will lay a two-lap
mile bicycle track at the park nex,t season,
which they claim will be thel best in the State.
The Capitol City Club has adopted the follow
ing schedule of laws: The speed of bicycling
within the city limits must not exceed eight
miles an hour; approaching vehicles, cyclists
must pass to the right, and when overtaking
vehicles they must pass to the left, always
sounding bells.
Tennis is rapidly becoming popular and the
courts are occupied at all hours. Among the
most prominent players Jerome Carroll heads
the list and is coming to the front rapidly.
The directors of the State Agricultural So
ciety have offered a medal for a match of
doubles between Dri?coll and De Long vs. the
Hardy Brothers. The match will take place in
the courts of the Capitol Tennis Club and will
be the event of the season. Tennis was the
principal sport at the courts at Bartlett Springs
this season. Among the ladies Mrs. Warner,
Mi«g Snooks and Miss Davis— the latter two
being Sacramento experts with the racket
have taken the lead, and among the gentlemen
Moye Stevens of Los Angeles has taken the
most games.
SAN JOSE SPORTING.
Lion Hunting a Great Sport— Santa
Clara College Football Team.
SAX JOSE, Cal., Aug. 30.— During the past
week several parties from this city have en
joyed rare sport hunting mountain lions in the
vicinity of Moody's Gulch, about five miles
above Los Gatos. About ten days ago C. J.
Salsman and F. J. Galley, while in
Moody's Gulch, ran across several lionesses
with kittens. On their return home they or
ganized a party and secured several fox hounds
and went back to enjoy lion hunting. During
the week's stay they killed three lions and six
half-grown kittens.
The largest of the lions weighed about 130
pounds and succeeded in killing one of the
hounds and seriously wounding a couple of
more before the hunters could dispatch it.
Mountain lions are quite numerous in that
vicinity, and those in the party pronounce the
sport most exciting.
Deer-hunting is attracting much attention
as the season djaws to a close. During the
past week several fine bucks were killed on
the Llagas and in the mountains back of Los
Gatos. In the latter vicinity some good shoot
ing can be had on moonlight nights in the
vineyards, where they come to feed on the
vine leaves.
Everything points to an abundance of quail
the coming season. Young birds were never
more numerous than this year.
But little fishing is done, although those
who have visited the trout streams during the
past week have secured good messes. A great
many of the local fishermen are at Capitola,
where trolling for salmon is at its height. Sev
eral poaching parties have returned with good
catches of black bass from the reservoir of the
San .lose Water Company and Weber Lakes.
One party returning from the latter place ex
hibited a dozen fine bass, the smallest of which
was eight inches long. Fishing at both places
is prohibited, but the parties generally get
around after the watchmen are In bed.
The coming meet of the Garden City Cyclers
on Adminsion day promises to be a great suc
i he tanriem race is attracting a great
deal of attention, and it is thought that the
entries for that event will be large.
Tiie day following the meet in this city, the
10th, the San Jose Road Club and the Tribune
Cyclers oi Uilroy will hold a joint race meet at
the Gilroy race track.
The Ladies' Cycling Club of the T. M. C. A.,
the Association Cyclers and the Elite Cyclers
held a joint run to the fruit orchard of Mrs.
Hayes-Chynoweth near Eaenvale Wednesday
evening.
It is said that Miss Mala Helm of .Santa Clara,
who recently rode ten miles between Irvington
and Milpitas, paced by a tandem, in 35
minutes, will ride an exhibition mile with
pacemakers at the cyclers' meet on the 9th.
During the past week 50,000 Truckee trout
(Salmo mykiss) have been received from the
Fish Commissioners by Game Warden Macken
zie and distributed in the various streams of
the county. During the summer 100,000
trout have been planted in the streams of this
county, and another shipment of 50,000 trout
was received this morning.
A football team is soon to be organized by the
students of Santa Clara College. During the
coming week several trial games will be
plnyed, when Messrs. Wilson and Gassell, the
colfege coaches, will select the players.
Santa Clara College has several good baseball
nines and the boys are practicing daily, so as
to be in form should any challenges be sent
their way.
The shooting section of the San Jose Turn
Verein has purchased a tract of land near Oak
Hill Cemetery for a shooting park.
SPORTS AT CATALINA.
A Fish Which Reeled Off Five Hun
dred Feet of Line in a Jiffy.
Avalok, Catalina Island, Aug. 30.— The
amount of fish being now daily taken at Cata
lina Island, almost defies belief. Not before
this season has the sea given up its denizens bo
abundantly. J. Neale Plumb.a New York multo
millionaire, who is putting in three months at
Caialina this season, all of which time he de
votes practically to fishing, heads the list with
the following astonishing record of catches in
a single week, aggregating five days' fishing:
Forty-eight yellow-tails weighing all the way
from -ten to "forty-two and a half rounds";
thirty-six rock bass, three barracuda and oue
enormous tnnny, weighing sixty-one and a
half pounds.
This la*t catch aroused more-interest and dis
cussion than any before this season. When
the monster was brought ashore speculation as
to his class was rife. Many old fisnermen pro
nounced it an albicore, but Mr. Plumb, who is
an expert angler and has caught hundreds of
albicore from the deck of sailing vessels oft"
the coasts of Africa and South America, in
sisted that this fish differs in several respects
from the albicore, noticeably in the length of
its fins. Neither could an albicore, he con
tended, tow a boat four miles out to sea, a» this
one had done. When the fish struck, Mr.
Plumb and his faithful lieutenant, Mexican
Jof, were not over fifty yards outside of a kelp
bed, trolling about in pursuit of seabasj; in
125 feet of water, with a heavy "pipe-sinker"
and a flying-fin, weighing about a pound, for
bait.
At the very first dash the fish took out 500
feet of line. It was impossible to check him,
and had it not been for the presence of mind
and skill of Joe Mr. Plumb declares be would
have lost his prize. The old Mexican fi^ner
man turned his boat like a flash and backed
up toward the fish, relieving the tremendous
strain and allowing the intrepid angler to re
gain some of his line, nearly all of which had
been reeled off. The fish kept rieht on out to
sea with a steady pull, and Joe relinquished
the oars, the boat rushing along faster than he
could row. When about a mile out the fitn
began making deep-sea plunges, which alter
nated with swift dashes out to sea, till finally
he retired 350 feet below the surface, where he
sulked some time and then permitted himself
to be slowly reeled to the surface. The game
fellow gave one fearful plunge as he reached
the surface and then lay passive at the mercy
of his captor, who promptly gaft'ed him. •
After lengthy discussion as to his class by
relerence to the United States Commission of
Fish and Fisheries, volume and section 1, plate
No. 95 A, an exact engraving of tha fish was
found, labeled "Tha Alalonga, or long-finned
'Tunny.' " This settled the dispute and the
mysterious fish was duly classified as a tunny.
J. B. Foss of Bakersfield, who has the reputa
tion of having caught the largest number of
deep-*ea groupers at Catalina for the two pre
ceding seasons, is here again for a week's con
test with groupers. He never fishes nearer
shore than six or eight miles and is an expert
in his line.
SPORTS AT STOCKTON.
Plueon-Shooters of the Athletic
Club-A Very Clever Boxer.
STOCKTON, Cai., Aug 30.— A1l of Stockton
is talking about the tug-of-war contest which
took place at the pavilion Saturday night be
tween James Peters (Bob Smith), who was sup
posed to be a rancher of Union Island, and
Frank Podesta, anchor man of the Italian team
of this city, an account of which appeared in
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 81, 1895.
to-day'sCALL. The Italians were so confident of
the success of their man that they wagered
over §9000 on the result. Podesta is an old
hand at the business and was consided invin
cible. 80 great was the interest taken in the
event by all classes that fully 3000 people wit
nessed it.
Sunday the first shoot of the Stockton Ath
letic Association took place, and a number of
members of the Stockton Gun Club partici
pated. The day was a perfect one, and some
good ecores were made. The new grounds of
the association at Goodwater Grove were used
for the first time. A sheltered grand stand haR
been erected for the benefit of spectators, and
there are few places in the State better fitted
for trap shooting than the place selected by
the Gun Club annex of the Athletic Associa
tion. George Schaeffei of Sperry & Co. and
L. Payne tried for first place with forty-six
birds each to their credit. Since then
there has sprung up great rivalry between
the two ana Payne nas challenged Schneffer
to a match on Sunday at twenty-five birds each
and has deposited a $35 forfeit with your corre
spondent to bind it. If the match is made it
will in reality be one between representatives
of the Stockton Gun Club and the Gun Club
annex of tne Athletic Association, as Payne
represents the one and Schaeffer the other.
There are many better shots in bothclubs than
either of these men and Stocktonians think
they can pick up ten men who can defeat a
similar number fr^m any one club on the
coast. Trap shooting is having a regular boom
and there are more enthusiasts here who love
this sport in proportion to the population than
in any other city on the coast. The match that
the Stockton Gun Club was trying to arrange
with the Empire Gun Club has fallen through
for the present.
Wednesday night the Stockton Athletic Asso
ciation gave its first exhibition at its new
gymnasium. The affair was a very creditable
one, as the members have only had the use of
the gymnasium and apparatus since the middle
of July. Some clever wrestlers have been de
veloped since Charles Moth was engaged as in
structor, and there are many good boxers In
the club. The gymnasium was crowded with
visitors and a good exhibition wa3 given.
Stockton possesses in Sam Frankenheiiner, a
brother of Jules, the stocky halfbaok of Stan
ford, one of the best heavy-weight boxers on
the coast. He has often made Charlie Turner
quit and is as good a man as ever. Franken
heimer boxed an exhibition bout with Moth
Wednesday night.
The field captain of the association is pick
ing out a football team to go against those rep
resenting the Reliance and Olympic clubs this
year. He is an old hand at the business and
has some splendid material to draw from.
Stockton will be heard from this year in foot
ball circles. There are a number of old col
lege players here and much new material.
A match has been finally arranged between
Charles Moth and a farmer named Seeley of
London to wrestle five bouts on September 20.
The styles are to be side hold and cateh-as
catch-can.

THE TAMALPAIS RAILWAY.
Stetson Will Acquire Points for
the Proposed Mountain
Road.
Prospects of the Enterprise and Its
Stimulating Effect Upon the
Vicinity.
Among the objects of the visit of J. B.
Stetson, president of the North Paciiic
Coast Railroad Company, to the East, is
the examination of the cable road to the
summit of the White Mountains in New
Hampshire. For it is now decided that
there shall be a road built to the crest of
Mount Tamalpais, and Mr. Stetson, who is
a good engineer himself, wants to see just
how the thing is done, and if he can im
prove upon it on this coast.
It has been estimated that the cost of
such a road would be between twenty and
thirty thousand dollars, although this is
considered by experts as a good deal below
wnat the actual expenditure will arrive at.
Mr. Stetson, before hi 3 departure, in dis
cussing the subject, expressed the opinion
that it would be a paying enterprise from
the start.
There come, he computed, about 30,000
tourists every year to San Francisco, and
undoubtedly a large percentage of these
would embrace the opportunity of obtain
ing the superb view of plain and ocean the
great peak affords. Even now those who
walk up the mountain on moonlight
nights to see the sun rise have within the
past two seasons mounted into the hun
dreds. The cars would be so swung that
they would present an almost horizontal
position when on the steepest grades.
With the beginning of the railroad, which
will be probably next sprincr, the founda
tion of the hotel on the crest of the moun
tain will be laid. To leave San Francisco
at 11 :30 at night, sleep 2800 feet above the
level of the sea, and see the Farallones ly
ing apparently at the base of the mountain
will be an addition to the many new sen
sations California offers strangers.
Stimulated by those signals of progress
San Rafael is deliberating on an electric
road to thread the town, run past San An
selmo to Ross Valley, and down as far as
Tamalpais village. The absence of street
transportation is a drawback to the town,
and the trolley will soon, according to
present indications, make its appearance
in tnat delightful suburb.

Panning Confederate Bills.
Mrs. Berger, who has a lodging-house at 15
Caroline street, was victimized yesterday by
the smooth individual who has been passing
Confederate bills of late. He called at the
house and hired a room, giving the landlady
a .$lO Confederate bill in payment and receiv
ing ass gold piece in change. He is described
as a young man about 24 years of age with a
dark mustache, and wearing a light suit of
clothes.
Warren Webster Convicted.

THE BAY DISTRICT RACES
Rico Was a Big Surprise,
Winning at the Long Odds
of 25 to 1.
THE FAVORITES SLAUGHTERED.
Belle Boyd Crippled the Talent
Badly by Finishing Outside of
the Money.
There are seven races to be run off to-day.
The horses in the first event will be called out
at 3 o'clock.
fcChevalier rode the favorites in the first
three races and none of them secured any part
of the money.
Peoples, who rode Don Pio Pico, Is certainly
of the improving sort. His finish on the big
colt gives promise of a future for the lad.
A. P. Miller, the owner of Favory, who has
been an invalid for many years, watched the
victory of the horse from his stable on the hill
facing the stretch, where he had been wheeled
in an invalid's chair.
Owner Boots of the Elmwood stock farm has
secured the services of C. Heuston, a clever
light-weight who can ride at 100 pounds and
was formerly in the employ of Fred Foster. He
will probably arrive to-day.
When Gold Bug had won the third race,
aged and gray-haired James Hunter, the
owner of the stocky little chestnut, ap
proached By Holly and begged him not to
bid his horse up, aa he was his sole depen
dent for support and he did not possess
the necessary means to back him and pro
tect the animal in case he received a boost.
The bronzed horseman from Flosden
walked away with his hands in his pockets
and the old man considered his equine
friend safe. But when the horse was put
up to be sold an outsider, acting for some
one not sportsmen enough to do his own
bidding, raised the horse's price $400 over
his entered figure on the programme.
Through aid from some brother horsemen
the aged owner was able to retain his
racer. The act came in for condemnation
on all sides, even the stable-boy extending
his sympathy to Gold Bug's owner.
The usual slaughter of favorites con
tinued, every one on the card being deeply
mired. The biggest surprise of the day
was the victory of Rico, a 25 to 1 outsider,
in the six-fuflong hanuicap, who won
cleverly with Mclntyre up.
The burly Don Pio Pico took the open
ing event, a five-furlong dash for maiden
two-year-olds, after getting away from the
{>ost next to last. Starting second choice
J eoples, who had the mount on him,
gradually hewed his way through the
bunch and won by a nose from Cyrene,
with Isabelle a fair third. The 7 to 6
choice Carrara, with Chevalier up, was
never prominent from the start.
Favory had no trouule in disposing of
the lot that lined up in the next race, a six
and a half furlong dash, starting one of the
second choices. He took the lead from
Tamalpais entering the stretch, and won
handily from Examiner. Johnny Payne,
a4oto 1 shot, was a good third. Red Will,
the 2 to 1 favorite, finished in fourth place,
ridden by Chevalier.
Jack Atkins' good filly Belle Boyd was
an even-money chance for the third race,
a five and a half furlong spin with light
welter-weights up. but she proved a griev
ous disappointment. Chevalier accepted
the worpt of a poor start and she could
never get to the front. Lloyd laid away
with Gold Bug until the bend for home,
when he cut loose and fairly walked in.
In a drive Olivia, a 4 to 1 shot," beat Abi P.
the third choice, half a length for second
place. The winner was backed down from
8 to 3]4 to 1.
The great dump of the day occurred in
the six-furlong handicap. At post time it
was 7 to 5 and take your choice between
the Boots pair, Vinctor and Nebuchad
nezzar, and sturdy Royal Flush, with
juicy quotations against the others. Silver
Sttue was away first when the flas? fell and
showed prominently in front up to the
last furlong, when the field closed on her
and the result looked in doubt. Royal
Flush now gradually assumed command,
and to all appearances had the field beat,
when Melntyre came fast on the outside
the last seventy yard 3 with Rico, and,
catching Hinrichs on the first chance
fast asleep, won by a length. Vinctor,
away from the post last, finished a good
third.
The Klmwood stock farm's Peter the
Great opened favorite for the last race, a
mile selling dash, but gave way in the
betting to red Gardner, who was backed
down to even money from 8 to 5. The race,
however, was only a mild gallop for Peter,
who won as liked, two lengths before
the favorite, iv I:42}£. • Mtjlholland.

A CHINESE INSPEOTOB NOW.
Kx -An ßlatant United States District At
torney Charles Weller Appointed.
Charles L. Weller, ex-assistant United
States District Attorney and candidate at
the last election for the Superior bench,
was notified this morning that he had
been appointed a special Chinese inspector
under Collector Wise. The question of
landing Chinese has taken up nearly all of
Mr. Wise's time, and for the last eight
months he has been attempting to secure
the appointment of an attorney who could
attend to the legal end of the business and
at the same time act as an inspector in ex
amining the cases which arrive on every
steamer.
Mr. Weller's commission will probably
arrive to-day, and he will assume his new
duties next week. As soon as he is thor
oughly 6onversant with the routine of the
work, he will probably examine all the
Chinese on the steamers instead of the
Collector.
A number of appeals from the decisions
of Collector Wise have been taken to the
Secretary of the Treasury, and the Collec
tor's reasons for refusing a landing to the
Chinese will be put in legal form by Mr.
Weller.
SPORTS FOR THE NINTH
Amateur Athletic Programme
for the Native Sons'
Celebration.
A Regatta on the Sacramento River
and Field Events In the
Park.
An extensive programme of aquatic and
field events has been arranged by the Pa
cific Amateur Athletic Association for the
Native Sons' celebration of Admission day,
September 9 and 10, at Sacramento. The
9th will be devoted to aquatic and the 10th
to day sports.
President William F. Humphrey of the
association, W. R. Berry of the Reliance
Club, F. P. Haynes of the South End Club
and Leonard Gill and John Elliott of the
Olympic Club are the committee arranging
the details. All entries will close Septem
ber 3. John Elliott has been appointed
referee by President Humphrey.
The regatta will begin at 5 p. m. on the
Sacramento River, on Monday, the 9th,
after the heat of the day is well past. The
races are to be: Senior four-oared, junior
four-oared, senior s-ingle-scull and junior
single-scull. President Pierson of the Sac
ramento Athletic Club is to survey the
course on Monday. It is to be 1% miles —
three-quarters of a mile and turn.
In the senior barge race, the South
Ends, Pioneers and Sacramentos can al
ready be counted upon. The Stocktons
are doubtful, owing to the illness of Bert
Lyons (bow), and the protest entered
against David C. Creanor (stroke), who is
sai d to be a professional baseball pitcher
and rifle shot. The Olympics and Acmes
rcay not be able to have tneir new barges
finished in time. Robert McArthur, cap
tain of the Olympics and their stroke, will
act as captain and forward waist of the
South Ends, of which organization he is
also a member.
For the junior barge race the Stocktons,
South Ends, St. Mary's College, Sacra
mentos and Pioneers have signified their
intention to enter, and the Ariels and Dol
phins may go in.
Frank Dupliasea of the Couth Ends,
Jolin Coughlan of the Dolphins, and J.
McCausland of the Ariels, are already
booked for the senior single-scull race, and
J. Brown and G. Giovannessi of the Stock
tons and T. H. Koenan of the Dolphins
for the junior single-scull. Medals will be
the prises, the firsts for the single races
having small diamonds.
The ti«ld sports will be held at Agricul
tural Park, Tuesday, 10th, beginning at
10 a. M., arrangements having been made
with the State Agricultural Society. They
will consist of the following :
One hundred yard run, 220-yard run, 460
--yard run, half-mile run, running high jump,
running broad jump, putting 16-pound shot,
throwing 16-pound hammer, pole vault, mile
run, mile walk, 120-yard hurdle and 220-yard
hurdle.
The University of California team will
be there with such athletes as Koch, Mer
vin, Henry, Torrey, Dyer, Scoggins,
Edgren, Barnes, Patterson and several
new men. The Olympic Club, Stanford
University and other clubs will endeavor to
fet up a team to take some honors from the
J. C. boys. They will be able to pick
from Brown and Brunson of the Stanford*,
Simpson, McClellan, Kenna and Stetson of
the Acmes, Oliver of the Reliance, Gill,
Butz, H. and Bert Coffin, Thompson,
Lewis, Feldcamp and Finne of the
Olympics, and other well-known inuscie
developers.
Some surprises are said to be in store by
those who nave been watching the boys
training, and it is anticipated that some
records may be beaten. This is the
championship irieet for 1895-96, and about
$550 worth of prizes will be distributed.
DUPING THE MEEOHANTS.
The Manufacturer*' Association's Name
Used by Bosug Collectors.
Secretary Mead of the Manufacturers'
and Producers' Association has aent the
following card to the members:
It has just been brought to our attention
that a person or persons are calling upon our
members soliciting money for the payment of
the insertion of their name in a directory of
some sort, and saying that they represent the
Manufacturers' and Producers' Association.
Please notice that we have no person collecting
money for any purpose for this association,
excepting our regular collectors collecting the
dues of the members, and such persons carry
written authority from us for that purpose.
As yet we have no one soliciting advertise
ments, and we would thank our members to
notify us immediately by telephone or wire
when they are so approached, so that we can
take proper steps to protect them.
The secretary states that the persons
have been charging members of the asso
ciation $1 for each name to be placed in an
alleged directory. He has learned that
several members have been duped by the
unlicensed use of the association's name,
and the belief is that the men are im
postors and have no directory except in
their minds.
Mrs. Gift Divorced.
Mrs. Suda M. Gift obtained a divorce from
Monroe £. Gift in Judge Daingerfield's court
yesterday. The grounds were willful neglect
and failure to provide and the husband offered
no defense. Tne Gifts were married at Aspen,
Colo., on February 25, 1890. Mrs. Gift says
that her husband has property worth $200,000
and she demands alimony. She has resumed
her maiden name of Suda M. Gurkin.
Populists to Talk Silver.
The question of silver coinage Is to be dis
cussed by the orators of the People's party at
Moz&rt Hall on Market street this evening.
The Idea of having the debate is to ascertain
the sentiment of the party with a view to
making the silver plank the main one of the
iiext piauorm.

BEFORE THE GRAND JURY
That Proposition In Practical
Politics Offered to E.
L. Colnon.
The Harbor Commissioner Will Be
Asked to Name the Man
Who Made It.
The Grand Jury held another session
yesterday and considered fully a communi
cation from the Civic Federation respect
ing the proposition in practical politics
made recently to Harbor Commissioner
Colnon.
An interview published in The Call of
August 20 reported the Harbor Commis
sioner as saying to the reporter:
In regard to San Francisco politics I may say
that I might have formed alliances with local
politician*, but I did not. Some of these poli
ticians came to me with propositions purely
financial in their nature.
In one of these propositions I will say that
the cool suggestion was made that there would
be as much as $400 a month on one appoint
ment. Of conrse, not wishing to do practical
politics on this basis, I refused to entertain any
such a proposition.
I immediately went to Dr. Morse of the Board
of Health and warned him to be very careful in
the matter of appointments, as I had been ap-
Sroached on the subject as above stated. Dr.
lorse can tell you more about the matter.
I was approached in other matters and
solicited to engage is "practical politics" in
another appointment — an important appoint
ment under the Board of Health— where the
sum of $1000 a month was represented as the
profits if I could control and secure the ap
pointment for the person desired. Dr. Wil
liamson will bear me out also in my statement
as to warning the Board of Health.
The Civic Federation directed the atten
tion of the Grand Jury to the interview
from which the foregoing paragraphs are
copied and requested an investigation be
made.
It is ascertained that a sDecial meeting of
the Grand Jury will be held next Monday.
and at that time Harbor Commis3ioner
Colnon will be asked to name the persons
who made to him the propositions in
"practical politics/
THE ZOUAVES DISBAND.
They Will Not Comply With the Condi
tions Imposed by the Gov
ernor's Manifesto.
The French Zouaves met for the last
time on August 27, and each man turned
in his uniform and arms. The company
has gone out of existence, for it will not
continue under the conditions which Gov
ernor Budd's recent manifesto imposes.
The decision was taken ac the meeting
in question and was unanimous. It is
only the military branch of the society,
however, which has disbanded; the be
nevolent institution is still in existence
and bids fair to live long.
The Zouaves were organized as a military
company in May, 1870. In February, 1877,
the tenevolent organization was formed,
with the company as its basis, and the in
stitution has been a strong one in French
circles of San Francisco for many years.
The list of those who have commanded the
Zouaves comprises: E. B. Buffandeau,
R. Lavipne, E. Voisard, F. Haffer, I.
Bine, J. Boutes, J. Peyre, A. P. Bellne, J.
Descharups and L. Rignaud. The officers
who were with the company when it dis
banded were: Captain L. Rignaud, First
Lieutenant H. Pucheu, Second Lieutenant
Z. Lonstalat, Adjntant J. Deschamps,
Sergeant-major P. Largenti; color ser
geants, A. Vallon and M. Andiclion;
quartermaster sergeant. A. Laplace; ser
geants, E. Montanban, J. Matluron,
Charles Mazeris and T. Menein ; corporal,
L. Borel, P, Pouquette, L. Lacrampe and
J. Andiclion; cantiniere, Rosine Borel;
guidon, A, Cosseron. These officers were
elected September 2 last.
The citizens of Meadville, Pa., celebrated
last week the seventieth anniversary of
Lafayette's visit to that town.
