A Row Between Two Teamsters
Caused by a Cripple— Wants
SAN JOSE, Cal., Sept. 29.— Officer Hum
burg yesterday afternoon arrested a man
giving the name of Fred Roth on suspicion
of having stolen a horse and buggy. Roth
was trying to dispose of a horse and buggy
worth $200 for $75, and one man claimed
he had been offered the rig for $7 50. In i
the buggy was a number of fine robes and
blankets, and the rig looked as though it
might belong to some business man. Roth
said he came from San Francisco, and as
he could give no satisfactory account of
himself, he was locked up. Chief Kidward
has notified the San Francisco police.
Charles I. Havens, an architect with of
fices in the Flood building, San Francisco,
called at the police office this afternoon
and identified the rig as one stolen from
him at Colonel Dickey's place, at Fifth
avenue and D street, San Francisco, on
Friday night. Havens said that he and
Colonel Dan Burns had been at the Bay
District track races and on their way back
they had stopped at Dickey's for dinner.

and when they came out an hour later it
was gone. Roth will be charged with

TAME BULL FIGHT.
The Zos Angelrs Matadors Rolled Around
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Sept. 20.— What
was advertised as a bullfight came off to
day at Agricultural I'ark, the occasion
drawing about 1000 people to the grounds.
Humane Officer Hutchins was on hand
to stop the fight in case of any cruelty to
the animals was shown, but he had no oc
casion to interfere.
Six bulls were exhibited and seemed to
enjoy the sport as much as the matadors.
The "only weapon used was a red flag, and
the affair was in reality a game of hide
and seek, the bull being the aggressor.

rolled on the ground, and one was assisted
to the top of the fence inciosing the arena
in -a most undignined manner, but no seri

JEALOUS WOMAN'S FREAK
Mrs. Lottie Hiatt Now in
Jail at Albany,
Flndlnsr of a Hat, False Mustache
and Spectacles to Be Used
PORTLAND, Or., >ept. 29.— Mrs. Emma
Hannah is now in jail at Albany charged
with the shooting of Mrs. Lottie Hiatt, at
Jordan Thursday night. Mrs. Hannah de
nies committing the crime.
One theory is that Mrs. Hannah was
goaded to the shooting by Mrs. Hiatt's
attention to her hu«band, but facts as
given out by the officers are that on Thurs
day evening Mrs. Hannah dressed in
man's clothing, wearing glasses and a
false mustache, appeared at the home of
Mrs. Holman, Mrs. Hiatt's mother, re
presenting herself to be a bookagent.
Mr 9. Holman and Mrs. Hiatt refused to
subscribe for a book, w hereupon the agent
whipped out a revolver and demanded the
treasures of the house.
The women resisted and the supposed
book agent fired her revolver, the ball
lodging in the ceiling. The two women
seized sticks of wood and beat back their
assailant into the yard, where the mother
was struck on the head with the revolver,
leaving her insensible.
The daughter started to flee ana was
shot in the back of the head. Two shots
took effect. It is further alleged that the
purpose of the assauJt was robbery, as Mrs.
Hannah knew Mrs. Holman had collected
$500 on a note that afternoon.
Bruises on the face of the murderess, re
ceived during the encounter, are strong
evidence against her. Her hat, which was
knocked off, together with a false mus
tache and spectacles, was recognized as be
longing to Mrs. Hannah's son. Mrs.
Hiatt's wounds are fatal.

STOCKTON, Cal., Sept. 29.— The grade
on the Stockton and Lodi terminal rail
road will be completed to-morrow evening,
ana the projectors announce that they will
begin track-laying in a short time.
The length of the road from this city to

one, as it opens a fine local and San Fran
cisco market to the fruit and vegetable
growers along the line.
The trains will be made to connect with
the river steamers, and with the cheap
, freights in their favor the producers can
place their products on the San Francisco
markets at a very low price and reserve a
neat profit for themselves.
It will also be a valuable feeder to the
Valley Railroad in the way of light freights.

ties on Stockton Channel and expects to
deliver freight and passengers to steamers
at the company's own wharves.

PROSPECTOR BEALE'S LUCK.
He Puts the California Mother
Lode Above the World for
[Special Correspondence of The Call.]
SAN ANDREAS, Cal., Sept. 27.—Ru
mors have been current here for several
days of a rich strike on the Seiffert ranch,
two miles out on the Copperopolis road.
A visit to the mine to-day proved the dis
covery to be more important even than
rumor had represented.
A short time ago J. H. Beale, a pro
fessional prospector, after looking over Mr.
Seiffert's ground, asked the privilege of
prospecting on it, as he believed the indi
cations were favorable for finding gold.
Several veins crop out on the place, and
the gulches below have been ricn in placer
gold. Mr. Seiffert is something of a pros
pector himself, and believes in giving every
man a show, so he agreed to give Mr. Beale
half of anything he should discover.
Some years ago Mr. Seiffert had sunk a
shaft on the crest of a high ridge running
in the general course of the mother lode,
northwest and southeast, but on a ledge
running nearly at right angles to it. He
went down fifty-five feet, and obtained oc
casional rich prospects of free gold, but not
enough, in his opinion, to pay, so he
finally quit work there, and has not
thought much about it since. Beale ex
amined the rock thrown out on the dump
one day and discovered that it contained
telluride, and that the whole pile was good
Communicating his discovery to Mr.
Seiffert they went to work jointly hunt
ing for a continuation of the vein, and
soon found a cropping on the hillside be
low. Breaking up the bowlder protruding
above the surface they were astonished
and delighted to find it rich in free gold
and telluride. This was about ten days
ago. Since then they have been quietly
at work prospecting the new find, and
have done enough work to prove a big
chimney of high-grade ore.
Beginning at the original find, they
have made an open cut along the line of
the vein for forty or fifty leet, and at the
deepest place are down about ten feet,
with the vein rapidly increasing in size
and retaining the same character of rich
ore. Everything is rich in gold, from the
dirt on the surface to the bottom of the
cut. There are about twenty ton 3on the
dump, and Mr. Beale says it will easily
average $100 per ton. There are many fine
specimen pieces that will go as high as
$1000 per ton.
John C. Seiffert, the owner of the ranch,
has lived here for eighteen years. He has
480 acres of land and is moderately well-to
do. His home is generally known as the
Kentucky House, it having formerly been
a wayside inn by that name, lie has
named the mine the Bismarck, in memory
of the great Chancellor of the Fatheriand.
J. H. Beale is 40 years old and claims to
have been the first white male born in
Tuolumne County. He was born in a
wagon on the road and says he has kept
moving ever since. He is a typical
prospector, having followed that calling
since he was a boy and knowing and caring
for nothing else.
He has traveled from Alaska to South
America "along the mother lode," as he
claims. He has been to Africa twice, to
Australia and to China and Japan. He
thinks Japan is going to become a great
gold producer when American miners get
in there. When asked to designate the
best gold field in the world he falls into
line as an advocate of the mother lode in
California above all ethers.
Should this new find develop into a per
manent mine the facilities for working and
milling are nearly perfect. The Calveritas
Creek flows through the ranch, with a suf
ficient volume of water at the lowest stage
to furnish abundant power.
The owners of the mine say it will not
be for sale until sufficient development
work is done to prove its value. My trips
into the hills arouna San Andreas have
satisfied me that it has not been prospected
with anything like the thoroughness it
deserves. This new and important find is
but one of many that are certain to follow
the general awakening of interest in the
mining industry here.

When the crack rifle team of the San
Francisco Schuetzen Verein went to New
York and won so many prizes and so
much honor another team in the same
club was practicing at home, and the mem
bers made such good scores that there was
a strong belief in the minds of the many
that the home team could outshoot those
who went East. To decide the matter a
match was made for a dinner and a case
of wine that was offered by Captain Siebe,
and yesterday the contest took place at
Shell Mound. Each marksman fired fifty
sbots, 1250 points possible. Captain H. M.
Wreden coached the team that went East
and Captain J. F. Bolts the home team.
The team that went to New York made
the following scores :
Alpers 971, Faktor 1009, Schuster 1064,
Jungblut 945, Helms 1053, Bendel 1003;
The team that stayed at home made:
Ahrens 1013, Thierbach 1013, Huber 1009,
Haake 979, Utschig 994 ; total 5994. The team
that went East won by 51 points.

CYCLERS ON THE ROAD.
Royal, San Francisco and
Verein Eintracht Clubs'
Olympic Cyclers and Runners Have
a Picnic Near San Le
Yesterday was an ideal day for cycling,
away from the City; but out in Golden
Gate Park the cold, heavy fog put a dam
per on the sport. Most of the local clubs
had runs called to points in the country,
and to them the day was particularly en
joyable, as the air was cool and the roads
good in all directions.
There were three five-mile road races
held by City clubs from San Leandro to
Haywards in the afternoon.
The first to start were the riders of the
Royal Cycling Club. There were nine
entrants, with handicaps ranging from
nothing to 1 mm. 30 sec. G. Frost, with
30 seconds handicap, won the race, and
also made best time— l3 :s6l£. The order
in which tbe others finished was: A. Pos
ner, I. Silverstein, J. Frank. H. Sternberg,
Mr. Friedman, L. Cooper and F. Schone.
The Verein Eintracht Cycling Club held
their race next. E. Petersen won with a
handicap of 1 minute. The fastest time
in this race was made by Henry Eben
ritter^who rode from scratch in 13:29.
The San Francieco Road Club also held
a race, in which there were twenty-four
entrants. Charles Goodwin, with thirty
seconds' handicap, won first place, but ow
ing to some miscalculation at the finish
tne accurate time was not taken. The
course was only in fair condition, however,
and record-breaking was not expected.

Probably the best road performance yes
terday was that of T. A. Griffiths ana
George T. Andrews of the Bay City Wheel
men. They started from here at 6:30 A. m.
on a tandem and arrived in San Jose, fifty
one miles, in 2 hours 58 minutes, being fol
lowed all the distance by T. S. Hall on a
single wheel. After a hasty breakfast they
remounted and, in the face of a strong head
wind, rode back on the other side of the
bay, forty-two miles, in 2 hour 3 30minu:es."
This is a feat which will hardly be excelled
for some time to come, and evidences won
derful endurance on the part of these
The Olympic Cyclers had a most en
joyable ride yesterday to the farm of Gil
bert Tompkins, near San Leandro. Forty
five of the faithful assembled at the club
for the start, and and as they rode down
Post street, with handsome Captain Butz
and Lieutenants Cooney and Conway in
command, they attracted considerable at
Arriving at the farm about 11 o'clock
they were met by Captain Gill, Secretary
Bosworth, Manager Kennedy and a crowd
of cross-country runners of the club. Be
fore lunch a few games were indulged in.
Fred Butz won the 75-yard footrace, Gill
second, Hoffmann third. Time, :8%. The
220-yard run was easy for Coffin, who
made it in 24 sec. Gill, Patterson, Thomp
son, Moulder and Yates finished in the
Coffin also won a half-mile footrace in
2:10 4-5, the order of the others being
Thompson, Yates, Carter, McGinley.
Rudolph won the one-mile handicap bi
cycle race from scratch in 3:10 3-5, with
Barney a good second and Howard Smith
third. Lewis won a similar race for a half
mile, with o'Kane second. Manager Ken
nedy should have won this race, but his
starter forgot to let go the wheel when he
shoved him off, with a consequent mishap
to the jolly Kennedy. He tried it again,
but could not overcome the lead the others
had gained. After the races a fine lunch
was enjoyed under the trees, and speeches
and songs served to make the time fly. All
rode home together, and voted it one of
the best runs they had ever attended. The
times in the running and cycling events
would have been better but for the track,
the surface of which was prepared for
horses rather than athletes or wheels.

He Makes a Bold Proposition and
Newspapers Will Inves-
20,000 VIALS OF MUNYON'S
Will Be Distributed Free From the San
Francisco ** Chronicle " Office, Be-
ginning; This Morning at
0 O'Clock — The Follow-
ing Letter Explains
To the Editors of San Francisco Newspapers:
Having discovered a positive and speedy cure
for rheumatism I address you in the hope that
you ; will give . publicity to my claim. lam
well aware that in making the bold assertion
that I have discovered a positive cure for rheu-
matism there will arise a strong doubt in the
minds of the public as to the truth of this
statement, and that a large majority of the
people will class this new discovery with the
Koch lymph failure and the Brown-Sequard.
It is to overcome this prejudice that I invoke
the aid of the press. I court the fullest inves-
tigation under your direct and personal super-
vision. I would suggest that the fairest and
surest way to test the efficacy of this remedy,
would be for me to send 20,000 J trial bottles to
the Chronicle office, there to be given out "ab-
solutely free" to all persons afflicted with,
rheumatism, that the name and address of
each person who accepted the remedy be en-
tered in a book, and at the end of one week a
reporter to be detailed to interview the parties
who have taken the medicine, and that the
results of each case be published (with special
permission) in the San Francisco newspapers.
By this means there can ,be no deception or
fraud, and the value of , this remedy will stand
or fall upon the testimony of those who have
tried it. : %r
Improbable as this statement may seem to
you or to those who have doctored for years
with the most skillful physicians without
benefit, yet I affirm and am prepared to prove
by over 200,000 people whom we have cured
that this remedy will cure acute or muscular
rheumatism in from one to five days. It never
falls to cure sharp, shooting pains in the arms,
lees, sides, back or breast, or soreness in any -
part of the body. It is guaranteed to promptly
cure lameness, sciatica, lumbago, stiff and
swollen joints, stiff back and all pains in tho
hips and loins. It seldom fails to give relief
after one or two doses, and almost invariably
cures before one bottle has been used.
We do not claim this remedy will cure rheu-
matism where the limbs are twisted out . of
shape, or where the disease is complicated by a
scrofulous diathesis, but by a careful record we
find that this remedy fails to cure in only about
4 per cent of the cases in which it has been
One of the strongest recommendations for
this remedy is that it is absolutely harmless
and that a person can take the whole contents
of a bottle without the slightest ill effects. Un-
like the medicines used in ordinary practice
for the cure of rheumatism, such as iodide of
potash and salicylic acid, which irritates tb.3
stomach and kidneys without effecting a cure,
this remedy acts as a strong tonic and Is in-
valuable in building up weak and debilitated
Believing that there is no cause so holy and
inspiring, no vocation so lofty and ennobling,
nothing so sure of man's gratitude and God's
blessing as an honest effort to relieve suffering
humanity, I beg to remain yours truly,
JAMES m. litnrroir.
