NO CALL FOR DR. FREELAND.
The Temporary Pastor Has Announced
That He Will Not Accept Dr.
Oakland Office San Fkarcxboo Caxl )
908 Broadway, Nov. 21. j
It is now almost certain that the Pin
*ree plan of providing for the unemployed
will be given a test in this city during the
coming winter under the direction of the
Lns:irute of Applied Christianity. The
committee appointed for the purpose has
reported in favor of the plan and it will
be lully discussed in its details at the
meetiag next Monday. It is proposed to
-provide for the registration of all deserving
-poor who are out of employment and to
try to provide a patch of land from the
■unoccupied lots lying idle about the city
v.hich may be cultivated in potatoes or
.CTrden produce, so that the families may
in a measure be made self-sustaining.
In the center or in the immediate out
-skirts of the city there are hundreds of
acres lying unused that might thus be
made productive. The committee did not
in the preliminary report go into details,
"but recommended a trial of the scheme as
mnc'j better than an appeal to charity. It
is proposed to make arrangements to "lease
all lots offered for this purpose and ar
range to provide implements and seed,
and thus put families in the way of help
In Detroit, where the plan was put in
operation by Mayor Pineree, 430 acres
were occupied and 954 applicants took ad
vantage of the scheme. The cost of the
experiment was less than $3600, while the
products were worth $14,000. In Alameda
County nearly all the profits from vege
table produce are appropriated by Chinese
and Italians, who not only supply this
county but ship large quantities to San
The Supervisors have also been impor
tuned to provide some work this winter on
the Contra Costa County road.
The committee of the* institute working
on the relief schemes are: Daniel Stewart,
Auditor Snow, O. I. Denison, C. A. Stowe,
T. T. Frickstad and A. J. Gretrg.
THE PRODUCERS' FAIR.
It May Be Necessary to Erect an Annex
to the Tabernacle.
The large number of manufacturers and
producers that have applied for space at
the Winter Fair have made it necessary
that there shall be more surface at the dis
posal of the committee than the Taber
nacle can provide. It is proposed to build
a large temporary annex rather than be
cramped ior space.
The executive committee has appointed
Craigie Sharp as superintendent and he
will at once proceed to draw up the plans
and recommend the apportionment of
space. The Ebell Society, whose mem
bership is composed of ladies, are to be
as-Ked to aid the fair. A committee has
been appointed to wait upon them and re
quest their co-operation. The Ebell Society
was the lather of the idea of the fair.
Their afternoon devoted to local products
and manufactures gave birth to the Win
ter Fair and was carried along by the
Merchants' Exchange and Board of Trade.
it ha? been definitely decided to hold
the fair open from the 16th to the 2lst of
December. The question of canvassing
the city for funds has been dropped, as it
is thought the exposition should stand on
its merits. It is believed that the prices
of Moor rent, admission and sale of con
cessions would more than cover all exren
ses. The committee is meeting every
night and as the time is very limited work
is being rapidly pushed.

WILL NOT ACCEPT.
Rev. Dr. Freeland Is Not to Be Dr.
It has been stated that Rev. Dr. Free
land, who is at present the temporary
jastor of the First Congregational Church,
will be tendered a call from the trustees to
fill the pastorate permanently. This state
ment was emphatically denied by one of
the trustees to-day.
-In his first sermon preached in the
church," paid a trustee, "Dr. Freeland
clearly outlined his position, and he has
nee changed his views. At least, if
be i.as, he has not informed us, and I am
sure he would do so first of all. He ie not
at all anxious for the pastorate, and has
Mated emphatically that under no con
ation would he accept the position per
manently. At present there is no idea of
offering him a call, and the publication of
that story should be denied, as it deters
men with whom we are corresponding
from giving us definite answers, and
creates a feeling of uncertainty.
"I cannot say that we are any nearer
closing negotiations than we were a month
ago, bat Dr. l'reeiand is an admirable sub
stitute, and we shall find just the man we
are looking for if we are left alone."
The County Law
to Extend Its Work.
The regular election of the Alameda
County Law Association was held last
night and resulted as follows: President,
Ben F. Woohler; vie e-president. W. D.
Powers; secretary, Clarence Crowell;
treasurer, .7. \\\ Stetson; programme com
mittee, H. \V. Puffer, Burdette Cornell,
Five application* for membership have
been received, and the association now
numbers sixty young attorneys and law
students. Next Monday night there will
be a mock trial. President Woolner is
(tiarcedwnl] bribery and corruption dur-
Mg hia recent campaign for president. J.
F. Chapman will prosecute, and as he filed
a startling array of charges, the evening
will be a lively one.
During the 'winter session Judges from
oan Jrancisco and professors from the two
pnWKnitjea w ill address the members, and
in addition several new features will be
provided by the programme committee.
Although not yet a year old the associa
tion has rapidly become popular. This is
owing to the practice of holding no ses
sions except for mutual instruction. There
is a movement started to provide club
rooms uptown instead of meeting in the
somewhat cheerless County Law Library
at the courthouse, which is not at all con
venient. The matter will soon be brought
before the association for discussion and
THE CHASE GIVEN UP.
Sheriff White Returns Home Without
The chase after Phil Crowley, the escaped
convict, is practically ended. Sheriff
"\\ hite returned to town to-day and feels
convinced that Crowley is out of the
county. Yesterday the Sheriff and his son
drove through San Ramon Valley, but
failed to find any farmhouse at whic h
Crowley had asked for food, and that was
taken as an indication that lie had fled
from his first hiding-place in the rough
country north of Jiaywarris and had
beaded for Contra Costa County.
George A. Sturtevant, the present Dis
trict Attorney of Mendooino County, for
merly defended Crowley when on trial
there. He says he is not the desperado
that the officers say he is. He is quite a
shrewd fellow and will do many things in
the nature of tricks to avoid arrest, but
will not do much shooting. His father is
a wealthy man in the State of Illinois, and
it is thought he will probably try to get to
Chicago. Two Deputy Sheriffs have been
left in the hills to try and secure a clew,
but nothing is known at present that
might lead to the capture of the convict,
and no more posses will go out, except
some definite information be received.
• T»r. Coyle ami Theaters.
It has been stated several times during
the week that Rev. Dr. Coyle of the First
Presbyterian Church denounced theater
going so strongly last Sunday night that
no member of his congregation would ever
again be seen at a playhouse. To-day, Dr.
Coyle said that the following paragraph,
which he supplied to The Call, is the only
reterence he remembers making to the
It is a very poor kind of a life that can live
only upon* stimulants. When we can read
nothing but the exciting and sensational, and
must betake ourself to the theater and look
upon painted shows to find happiness; when'
the old home and the old church and the old
book are accounted dull, the tide is very low
and death is not fr.r away. The men and
women who make and save the world are the
men and women who pine for nothing romantic,
nothing stagey, nothing startling, but are
content to lead anuiet and peaceable life in
godliness and honesty.
High School Athletics.
A mass-meeting of students, teachers and
: school directors was held in the Hieh
! School gymnasium this afternoon to dis
■ cuss the advisability of the boys sending a
team East next year to compete at the
National Interschoiastic games at New
' York. The games are held during the
holidays and the boys are attempting to
: raise $5000 to pay expenses. Already sev
eral hundred dollars have been obtained,
but Principal McChesney had denounced
i the plan as one that will interfere with
the boys' studies. There were several
speeches made this afternoon and the de
cision was arrived at that three delegates
, should be appointed by the students, alike
number by the teachers, by the Board of
Education'and by the alumni, and that the
twelve should meet at the High School
next Saturday night and finally decide the
matter. At present it looks as though the
project will not go through.
To Dwell in a Castle.
Charles F. Whitton, an official court re
porter, has leased the famous Peterhof
castle from the widow of the late Count
Peter Poulson. The new tenant is not at
all superstitious and does not fear the
threats of the Messianic Order that many
kinds of misfortunes will certainly be the
position of any one who attempts to dwell
there. The members of the order are very
numerous around Peterhof, and they ex
pect to see the Count return from the
great unknown at any time.
Killed in a Ditch.
Fritz Weilder, a sawer contractor, was
killed this morning by the caving in of a
; sewer ditch at Golden Gate. Weilder was '
wotking with a man named William*, and
the latter went into the house, which was
beinji connected, with the main sewer.
While he was away the earth caved in, and
when Weilder was discovered his feet were
in the air and several tons of earth were on
top of him. He was dug out at once, but
life was extinct. Weilder was 35 years
old, and leaves a widow and one child.

STUART'S LAST CONQUEST
He Is Being Sought by an Irate
Husband From New
HIS INFLTJENCE OVER WOMEN.
An Attempt to Obtain His Masonic
Papers From His Last Wife
Oakland Office San Francisco Call,)
90S Broadway, Nov. 21. j
Mr. Meyers of Newark came to Oakland
a few days ago to look for his wife. He
had been informed that Mrs. Mejers was
intending to decamp with Cornelius
Stuart, the Englishman who has recently
figured in several scrapes and who was
claimed by two women as their husband.
Meyer? supposed that his wife was on a
visit to San Francisco, but learned that she
vras in Oakland and was a frequent visitor
to Stuart while he was confined in the
County Jail. She and another lady were
very attentive to the prisoner, but he was
released before Meyers learned of his wife's
friendship for the man behind the bars.
The irate husband hunted Stuart for sev
eral days in vain. Stuart had disappeared
and so "had Mrs. Meyers. Mrs. Stuart and
Mr. Meyers were brought together by
Stuart's attorney, W. P. Aram, and on
comparing notes they were convinced that
they had discovered a neat little plot. It
was then discovered that Mrs. Stuart had
given her husband money with which to
pay his attorney, but that'he had not done
so. Mrs. Stuart declared that she had lost
confidence in her husband, and Mr. Meyers
said he did not expect to see Mrs. Meyers
again, but he would very much like an in
terview with Mr. Stuart.
Some days ago Stuart rushed into At
torney Aram's office with a check which
was thought to be bogus, and said he was
going to use it to pay a man whom he had
sent to Mrs. Stuart's house to procure a
little trunk containing his Masonic papers.
This scheme did not work, for Mrs. Stuart
in the meantime had learned that she was
evidently de trop and refused to part with
Last night Mrs. Meyers coolly walked
into the attorney's office and asked if he
could tell her where Mr. Stuart could be
found. Mr. Aram told her she could prob
ably answer the question herself, and the
Stuart is a mystery to all who have had
occasion to watch his career. He pos
sesses a marked effect on middle-aged
women and seems to be able to induce
them to further all his schemes, from
mortgaging their property for his benefit
to marrying him. He is not an attractive
man, but for several years he has figured
in courts, but has always escaped con
viction. His most recent affair was the al
tering of the marriage license record after
his marriage to Mrs. Ada Moore, the lady
who is still his wife, if no one else can sub
stantiate a claim tothat title.
"I have watched Stuart very closely,"
said Mrs. Aram, wife of his attorney, to
night, "and I must admit he possesses a
remarkable fascination. I listened to him
and felt inclined to sympathize with him,
although I knew he was insincere and had
cone off without paying my husband his
fee. I do not see anything attractive
about him, but even after his disgraceful
treatment of Mrs. Moore she believed in
him till Mrs ; Meyers of Newark came on
the scene. Now I think she is convinced
he is worthless. If he should come back I
would not like to guess at the result. I
presume he wiil be heard from before long,
as a man of his ways is never long in re
tirement. It will not be well for him,
though, should he meet Meyers."
JOHN BERNAL CONFESSES
The Man Who Shot Richard
Foley Gives Himself in
Both Were at Mrs. Alviso's House'
There Was a Scuffle and Then
the Pistol Shot.
Oakland Office San Francisco Call,)
908 Broadway, Nov. 21. f
John Bernal was brought to the County
Jail from Pleasanton to-nhrht and will be
neld till the result of the shooting of
Richard Foley is known.
This morning Bernal surprised the Town
Marshal of Pleasanton by confessing that
he shot Foley. He then walked into Jus
tice Brophy's courtroom and surrendered
himself, at the name time giving up a re
volver with which he said the shooting
".Foley was trying to get into Mrs.
Alviso's house," said Bernal to-ni«ht,
"and there was a scuffle. I tried to keep
him from breaking in the door, and in the
row my revolver went off. I did not in
tend to shoot him, but I had it in my hand
and it went off and hit Foley. He and I
are friends, and no one is more sorry than
lam that he is hurt. So long as he could
not talk I did not say anything, but now
that lie is likely to die I though? it host to
speak. When "the nun went off 1 did not
know that it was Foley. After he was shot
he waiked away."
Bernal refuses to tell why he was at Mrs.
Alviso's front door at 2 o'clock in the
morning, and says that he was not in the
Foley's condition is unchanged, except
that he appears to be growing slowly
weaker. His strength is ebbing, and it is
not believed that he will live long. His
statements have been &o conflicting that
no faith is put in any of them. The gen
eral belief in Pleasanton is that Foley at
tempted to enter Mrs. Alviso's hou^e by
force, and that it was then that he was
shot by Bernal, who was on the inside.
A number of men who have frequented
her place are being closely watched, and
their whereabouts at the hour of the shoot
ing investigated. Mrs. Alvieo, near whose
house Foley was shot, aenied that Foley
was there. She was separated from her
husband about three years ago. She says
that she had a speaking acquaintance with
him, but he did not call on her. This is
contradicted by the statement made by
certain parties that some time ago Foley
and another man were at her house when
some trouble arose and Foley was fired out.
Foley flatly refuses to make a dying
declaration. Once Foley said he would
make a statement, and Deputy District At
torney Moore told him to go ahead. He
"Well, I was shot about fifteen feet from
Mrs. Alviso's house. That's all I know
Then he again declared that he would
make no statement. No charge will be
made against Bernal until the result of
Foley's injury is determined.
FAITH CURE DIDN'T SAVE
Death of the Missionary Daughter
Who Discharged Her
Oakland Office, San Francisco Call,)
908 Broadway, Nov. 21. J
Miss Marie J. Smith, the young lady
who refused the aid oi doctors and relied
solely on faith to cure her of a complica
tion of diseases, died this afternoon.
The case of Miss Smith has attracted
much attention on account of the fact that
the family physician, Dr. Wythe, was per
emptorily discharged and all human aid
was dispensed with several months ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith were missionaries in
Northern China, and about three years
atro they returned to this country so that
their daughter could have proper medical
treatment. Over a year ago the physicians
gave the family to understand that death
| was only a matter of time, and that noth
: ing short of a miracle could save the young
lady. Dr. "Wythe attended the patient
from March to June, and then he was told
that his services were no longer required.
The case was evidently a desperate one,
and mother and daughter decided to em
brace the doctrine taught by Mrs. Carrie
Judd Montgomery and trust in CJod alone.
For several weeks the divine healers
exercised their faith, but there was no
change for the better. The patient con
tinued to sink, but remairied firm in her
resolve to trust simply to faith. Friends
advocated a return to the physicians' treat
'■ ment, but their advice was not heeded. A
, few weeks ago Rev. Dr. Truesdell, a newly
arrived scientific evangelist, visited tne
young lady and tried to impress on her
mother that the divine-healing system was
of no avail, but he met with no success.
For the past few days Miss Smith has
I been gradually sinking and fb-day she
; died. After iier death Dr. Wythe was
[ sent for, and he had no hesitation in say
! ing that death was due to consumption of
\ the bowels. Accordingly he signed the
; death certificate.
"I attended Miss Smith regularly from
1 March to June," said the doctor to-night,
, "and I made a very careful diagnosis of
| her case. I saw that she was suffering
; from several ailments, and knew that the
I consumption of the bowels must have
; proved fata!. I think it was June that I
i was discharged, and a few times after that
| I saw the young lady, but 1 never pre
i scribed for "her. By the progress of her
decline I was quite satisfied that consump
tion was gradually doing its fatal work.
To-day when I was called in I had no hesi
tation in certifying to the cause of death.
"Had Miss Smith been attended by a
physician right along the end would have
been no different nor lonuer delayed.
Medical attendance would have probably
1 relieved much of the suffering, but neitheV
it nor faith cure can eradicate a fatal dis
ease that has once gained such headway
as it had in this case."

ENCINAL`S NEW HOUSE.
Enthusiasm and Success in the
Alameda Yacht Club Are
But Five Property-Owners Pay Taxes
for Buena Vista Avenue
ALAMEDA, Cal., Nov. 21.— Proposals
will be opened to-night by the Encinal
Yacht Club for the erection of another
building at its landing-place, off the
southerly terminus of Grand street.
The new structure is to bo built to the
north of the main clubhouse, on piles al
ready driven. Its dimensions will be 35x70
feet, and it is to be one story. It will con
tain two bowling alleys, two billiard-tables
and a shuffle-board, besides a large assem
bly room, with huee open fireplace. Its
estimated cost will be $2500. Money to
meet the expense of -construction will be
raised by the sale of bonds. These are
being issued in the denomination of $10
each, bearing 6 per cent interest, and $1500
have already been taken by members. The
success of the Encinal Yacht Club during
the past year, both socially and in racing
contests, has inspired creat enthusiasm
among its members. This new building is
the direct result of it, but there is already
talking and planning to build one or more
new yachts for the coming season to truant

Deputy Sheriffs, etc. — so that it may be an
equal venture for us. lam positive that at a
Sunday game, with even fair weather, we
would have not less than $1800 or $2000, and
with first-class weather that amount might
well be doubled.
Regarding your inquiry relative to the
weather about Thanksgiving day It never
rains here this time of year; but it is likely to
be quite cold, and your men want to come with
their overcoats and warm under and outside
clothes. The Reliance boys came without
(gome of them) and they nearly froze to death.
Ii was cold and snowing the day of the game,
and receipts consequently light— but $1348, a
week-day game, too. We are in mourning
here: Reliance gave us the first defeat. I
think they will tell you how close it was. We
had it within three or four feet of their goal
line when time was called. Some of our best
men were not here and our boys played the
"frankest" game they ever put up. Every man
in the line learned the game this season, and
they went to pieces. Butte mourns; but I am
ready to gamble if 1000 that we defeat the Re
liance at Frisco December 21.
We leave here on November 20 for Denver,
returning here about the 25th. Wire me here
when you are to arrive, so I can meet you with
transportation at the depot. Yours, very truly,
D. Gay Stivers.

Sporting Editor Call, Wednesday— Dear Sir:
The description of the Kelly-Butler contest at
the Acme Club teems to me to be incorrect.
There was no brutality, and certainly it was no
one-sided affair. The San Francisco lad bat
tled bravely acainst long odds,. seeing that he
had to take offsevn pounds in four hours at
the Loryea Baths. That he had his man almost
out in the tirst round will be conceded by all
who witnessed the contest, but the strain of
the afternoon was too great. The Call is the
San Francisco Club paper always, and thus we
1 ask a correction. The many friends of Kelly
are ready to make a return match with Butler
at a reasonable date, believing that the former
will reverse the verdict of last Tuesday night.
| Respectfully. G. A.
Next Tuesday evening the Reliance
Athletic Club of Oakland will give its
I gentleman's night. Boxing and wrestling
will constitute the principal sport of the
evening. Considerable interest is mani
fested in the four-round bout between Mc-
Mahon of the Olympic Club and Ford of
the Reliance Club. The men are said to
be very evenly matched in science, and at
125 pounds they should make a very in
teresting showing with the mittens. In
the wrestling contests the event of the
evening will consist of a match catch-as
catch-can, best two in three falls, between
Williamson of the Acme Club and Grill of
the Olympic, in conjunction with the
matches stated an excellent programme of
athletics has been arranged by the officers
• of the athletic committee.
The next contest that will take place at
the Colma Athletic Club will be between
George Green (Young Corbett) and Danny
Nepdham of Minneapolis. If Needham is
the Needham of old he should easily dis
pose of Green;

TWO NEW* CUTTERS.
Flans and Specifications for the New
Revenue Craft Have Been Re
ceived by Collector Wise.
After being importuned for several years
the Treasury Department recently decided
to give the port of San Francisco some
thing like an adequate revenue cutter
service, and yesterday Collector of Customs
Wise received from Actin g Secretary Cur
tiss plans and specifications for the two
new vessels for San Francisco.
One of these ships will take the place of
the Hartley, or, rather, go into active
service in her place, the Hartley to be
simply kept for emergencies, and the other
is to do coast duty outside.
The coast cutter is to cost $200,000, her
material to be of both wood and steel, and
she is to have a displacement of 1280 tons,
and, if it can be attained by her style of
build, develop a speed if necessary of
eighteen knots an hour. Such a ship
would be far superior to any ocean cutter
now on the coast.
Until she is named she will be known
simply as "No. 3." Her length is to be
219 feet, depth 33 feet and beam 17 feet 8
The harbor cutter is to be known as the
"Golden Gate," to cost $50,000 and to have
a speed of ;13 knots with 525 horsepower
and 215 tons displacement. She will bo
much bigger than the Hartley and able to
go out to sea. She will be double-decked
and manned with day and night crews.
The ocean vessel must be finished by
January 1, 1897, and the harbor cutter by
August 1, next year. Bids for both will be
received until December 21.

THE BAY DISTRICT RACES.
Five Out of Six Favorites Won
at Short Odds in the
TINY WAS FIRST AT 12 TO 1.
Through Superior Riding on Chora's
Part Laura F Beat Midlo a
Nose on the Wire.
Jockey Ballard, who will ride the horses
trained by J. D. Randall, is due to arrive
within the following two weeks.
"Dutch" Collins, well known on Eastern
tracks as the betting commissioner for M. F.
Dwyer, is one of the late turf arrivals.
Bookmaker Sam Summerfield arrived from
the East yesterday, and, with his partner,
Frank Miner, will probably cut in at the next
Ban Ilonig, the St. Louis horseman whose
racers are quartered at the new Ingleside
Track, got into town from the East yesterday.
He brought his clever light-weight jockey,
Garner with him.
George E. Smith (Pittsburg Phil), who di
vides honors with Riley Grannan as a plunger
and has been for years one of the most talked
about perfconages of the turf world, stepped off
the Oakland boat yesterday, fresh from the
East. Mr. Smith's horses, among which are
the well-known performers Derfargilla and
Wernberg, preceded him a day, getting here in
the car containing Ed Purser's siring.
Bob Tucker was tried at the jumping game
yesterday morning, and his initial trip over
the sticks could hardly be called a howling
success. He managed to throw his rider and
run away, finally capping the climax by
endeavoring to jump the inner fence to the
main track. This is where he met his Water
loo, for he got but hallway over, and before
extricated from his unplea.sant predicament
was a fit subject for the abtatoir.
The card yesterday contained a scant lot
of entries. The favorites were all pro
nounced ones and with a single exception
had no difficulty in showing in front at the
end. The betting was sluggish, and omit-
ting the nose-and-nose finish between
Midlo and Laura F was a poor day's
Jerry Chorn and Chevalier divided the
riding honors, each landing two winners.
The Australian horse Empire came out
fresh and full of run in the opening dash
of rive and a half furlongs and was made a
slight favorite over the other seven start
ers, going to the post a I\i to 1 favorite.
Burns got away from the post last with
him, but he ran around the field and won
by a short head from the 6to 1 chance,
Rogation. Burmah was third, half a
length away, a head before Modesto.
In the second race, at live furlongs, for
two-year-olds, occurred the only dump of
the day. Zeta was plunged on at 4to 5,
but after showing slightly in front of Veva
for over three parts of the journey gave it
up. Charlie Slaughter r.ow brought" the 12
to 1 shot Tiny up, and outrtnishing Rowan
on Veva won by a neck in 1 :02. The
erratic Spry Lark", second choice, finished
The next race, a mile selling affair, was
a cake-walk for the 4 to 5 favorite Red
Root. Chorn laid back in the bunch with
him until a furlong from the wire, when
he gave him his head and he galloped in,
a length in front of old Sheridan, at 20 to 1
in the betting. The time, 1:44^4, marks a
Barney Schreiber's black filly, Laura F.
was a H to 5 favorite for the fourth race at
rive furlongs, opposed only by four other
two-year-olds. The stable fancied the
chances of Midlo, with but ninety-nine
pounds up, and he was a decidedly well
backed second choice, his odds being low
ered from 11 to stoßto 5. When the flag
fell Dc.nnelly on Midlo was first away, and
he maintained his advantage here gained
until less than a furlong from home, where
Laura F drew up and disputed it with him.
In a hard drive Chen outfinished the
lighter boy and got the Schreiber entry's
nose in front the last couple of jumps.
This finish was the redeeming feature of
the day's sport.
Green Morris scratched his entry Strath
meath out of the six-furlong run, and nei
ther of the remaining two starters, Mon
tana and Linville, had speed enough to get
Thelma out of a canter. She was a2to 5
chance and won as she pleased, with Mon
tana a hanay second.
The last rare over a mile looked like a
gift for Detective, and 1 to 4 were the best
odds obtainable against him around post
time. He was in front almost the entire
way and won easily, two lengths in front
of Ike L, a 25 to 1 chance in the betting.
Charmer was a close-up tl ird.

NOTES OF THE GRIDIRON.
Olympics Played Without Berkeley
ami Practiced Two Now
The Olympics had to content themselves
with light practice without opposition at
Central Park yesterday evening, as the
Berkeley A'ars-ity did not come across the
bay to play the second secret game.
Two new plays were tried by the Olym
pic team. In one the ball is touched by
the half and advanced round the tackles
by the quarterback, guarded by the inter
ference of the other backs. The other
play is a long run straight to the side,
with a double line of interference, the first
to encounter the opposing end and the
other to protect the runner in his advance.
Porter, the right tackle, practiced for a
time as fullback and punted better than
Pherukauf, the Jeft half, who has so far
done the Kicking for the team.
The Olympic line-up for to-morrow's
match with Reliance is not yet decided
upon. Captain Smith said last night that
he would probably make several changes
in the line, but could not say just what
they would .be.
It had been hinted that in addition to
Wilbur as left guard, the line would be
further strengthened by putting Simpson,
the disqualified Berkel-y player, in at
tackle and moving Porter to fullback. But
the Olympic captain denies that Simpson
will be played in Saturday's game. But
big Wilbur, the record-breaking hammer
thrower, will play left guard, and possibly
Cameron will be put in at right end. He
played that position last evening and ha 3
been in training for it some time.
Oscar Taylor, Berkeley's star fullback of
'02 and '93, is coaching the Olympic men.
Patterson, once of the University of Cali
fornia's victorious track team that made a
tour of the East last summer, will be sub
half for the Olympics to-morrow.
With Taylor, an old Berkeley Varsity
man, as coach, and with Portei, a member
of last season's Varsity, as tackle, King
ton, a student at the College of Pharmacy,
as center, and Patterson, the Berkeley
high jumper, as a substitute, the alliance
between the Olympic eleven and the Uni
versity of California appears to have its
origin further back than the recent can
celing by the Stanford manager of the re
turn game with the Olympics.
As the two big Athletic Club teams hap
pen to be constituted this season, it is
natural that some of their members should
favor one college. It might be expected
that the Berkeley men on the Olympic
team would not forget their loyalty to the
State University, and it might al?o be ex
pected that the captain and several of the
Reliance team, being old Stanford football
men, would as individuals be the allies of
the Palo Alto Varsity.
The future existence of the two big ath
letic clubs' football teams must depend in
a measure upon material supplied by the
universities and upon the practice and
training obtained from contact with the
college elevens. Both the State Univer
sity and Stanford have been very mate
terially benefited by their games with
the Reliance and the Olympic teams and
the clubmen have also profited by the ex
perience that will make their match to
morrow a better and more scientific ex
hibition of football than would otherwise
have been possible.
Men are at work in Central Park upon
the new grand stand for Thanksgiving.
Substantial new benches are already up in
place along the south end of the field and
the entire east side is to be fitted up with
tier upon tier of seats, so that on the day
of the great intercollegiate match the field
will be surrounded by four sloping walls
of over 11,000 spectators, in addition to the
more wildly enthusiastic who will stand
along the low fence about the gridiron.
George Green Confessed.
George Green, who was arrested in a Mason
street reaort last Thursday night by Secret
Aarent N. R. Harris for passing counterfeit
money, confessed before United States Commis
sioner Heacock yesterday. He was held. The
Government expects to use him as a witness
against Edwin Abbott, with whom he op
