HOW THE WINNERS CAME IN
Marty Bergen Lands the Palace
Hotel Stakes With Junius an
Promptly at 2 o'clock the eleven starters
in the opening race of a mile were called
out by bugle call. The great throng in the
big bettine ring eibowed and shoved one
another in the crush to cet their money in
on the horse of their choice. Pepper and
E. H. Shirley were scratched, leaving ten
to go to the post. In the opening betting
Terrier, the Hobart entry, had first call,
but a surfeit of Eastern money went in on
Semper Lex, with Marty Bergen up, cut
ting his odds from 4 to 2, making him the
post favorite. Ferrier receded to 3^tol.
It was quietly tipped that Tom Boyle had
Cadmus back in his oid form, and coupled
with his stable companion, imp. Candid, a
barrel of coin went in on the Spreckels
pair at odds of 4to 1. The going was con
sidered a detriment to Installation's
chances and he receded in the betting from
fours to 7 to 1.
Little Cripple came in for strong backing
with rives about, him, but his chances were
killed by poor handling.
There was but slight delay at the post
before Caldwell sent them away well lined
up. The long-priced outsider, Moderocio,
slipped to the front, followed by Montana,
the two keeping each other close company
until Hearing the bend for home, where
Muniana was half a length to the good.
Following close op came Installator, Sem
per Lex and Little Cripple. Bergen's rare
judgment now came into play, for when
straightened away for the wire he made
his ran on Semper Lex and, overhauling
one after another, passed under the wire a
handy winner by two lengths. Montana,
rather overlooked in the betting at 20 to 1,
iouk the piace a length before Installator,
on which Tod Sloan lost considerable
ground by turning wide into the stretch to
be dry going.
A six-furlong run followed with eight
starters, Moss Terry, Yemen, All Over and
trge declining the issue. Potentate
jMsidered a "moral" with his 112
la up, and the bookies were fairly be
sieged with coin at odds of 11 to 10, bring
ing the price down to 9to 10. The old
favorite Oregon Eclipse, who has been run
ning so well over at the Bay District track,
t Lick friends, for a steady stream of
money forced his odds down from threes
to 13 to •". Dan Honig's Magnet had been
heralde ! as a warm one, but the stable
evidently did not in on him, for
is receded in the betting. Of the
alters Pat Murphy was about the
one that received any backing to
f, ihe roan sprinter carrying a
deal of coin at lengthy odds. This was
the only Held that caused Starter Caldwell
any trouble in dispatching, there being
quite a delay at the post, caused princi
pally by the unruly actions of Potentate
•.a Saner. , f
When finally sent away, Pat Murphy
ru into the lead, soon followed by
the favorite. Pat led the Eastern sprinter a
chase to the stretch, but here he
grew weary, and the favorite was seen in
front. Jerry Chorn, who had the mount
en the first choice, here displayed very
;dgment. Instead of buggy the rail
where the going was sioppybutfirm.be
came down the center of the track, which
v.a. slippery, the consequence being that
Willie Martin brought Oregon Eclipse up
and beat him out in a drive by a length and
a half. Montalvo, an outsider, was a fair
third, a length before Magnet, who was
away from the post last.
Next came the event of the afternoon's
Iport, the rich Palace Hotel stakes, over a
mile and a furlong, worth $1500 to the for
tunate horse. Six fine-looking specimens
$i the thoroughbred sported silk. Ever
%nee Bright Phoebus, the Realization win
iier, disposed of an ordinary field in sloppy
|oing at the State Fair meet, the majority
qf California race-goers have considered
bir: f invincible, and the opinion formed
; -red costly yesterday. The opening
D the books showed Bright Phoebus
a strong 4 to 5 favorite, but when a heavy
; ay began on the Elrcwood Btock farm's
Vfiir, Yinctor and lloroa, cutting their
odds from 3 to 2, Millionaire Hobart's
j.orsc receded in the betting to 7 to 5.
This did not last long, however, for the
.ookies soon had to cut to even money
again; During all the squabble to get
aboard the horses mentioned, a quiet play
on Junius, a son of Longfellow and
Modesty, brought liia price down from 60
Foremost and Gallant coupled in the
i etting were to carry the red, white and
i.lue of President A. B. Sprtckels, and the
pair were well supported at fours. Just
ijefore post time the fact became known to
the judges that owner Boots bad declared
l:,,nia out of the stake, which necessitated
the declaring of all bets off . twenty min
utes being given for a new booK. There
vas no material changes in the betting in
the new book, with the exception of
unius, the wily bookie scenting danger,
with the result that 25 to 1 was the best
offered against him. As the starters pa
raded before the grand stand each came in
:»r careful scrutinizing, and each looked
tit to race for a kingdom.
The red bunting flashed in the air and
•hey were away to a perfect start. Passing
*c stand Vinctor headed the van, with
1 Ulant, Foremost, Junius, Bright Phoebus
; '"i G. B. Morris following in the order
1 imed. Before half the distance had
tofco traversed it became apparent that it
was not the favorite's day, for Miller could
already be seen urging him to keep in up
in the bunch. Swinging around the turn
into the stretch for the final effort, there
was no material change in the positions,
with the exception that Foremost had
fallen back behind the favorite, G. B. Mor
ris still being the target-carrier. The
weight on Vinctor now began to tell, and
although Cash Sloane strove desperately
to retain the lead, 13ergen, hugging the in
side position with Junius, passed him and
romped in an easy winner by five lengths,
amid great cheering by the backers of the
outsider. Gallant, who ran a great race,
was lapped on Vinctor as the wire was
passed. The winner covered the distance
in 1:59, a remarkably fine performance.
The fourth event on the card was a five
and a half furlong spin for maiden two
year-olds, and the Flambeau youngster
Ravelston scored the first win for Mr. A.
B. bpreckels. Coupled in the betting with
Pique, the pair were backed down from
2>i to 1 to 7 to 5, the stable relying on
Kavelston to pull the event off. This he
did in gallant style, ior, shaking off
Masocro, who tried hard to get to the
front, the duo headed the other eight
starters into the stretch. Kavelston here
drew away and won easily by four lengths.
La Flecha passed Pique the last sixteenth,
A great array of jumping talent was
down to start in the otic and a half miles
hurdle race, the last event on the card, |
and the most exciting and stubbornly con
tested finish of the day was witnessed. A
whole carload of money went in on the
Elkton stable's J O G, still as good as 8 to
5 was obtainable at bugle call. Six to 5,,
however, was much more plentiful.
Andy Blakeley's jumper, Colonel
Wei^htman, was 8 decidedly well-backed

SHE LEFT FOR MILL VALLEY.
~— — —
Every Effort to Discover Her Where
abouts by Her Friends Proved
Mary Funk, a domestic in the employ
of Mrs. Simon at 2221 Sutter street, has
disappeared, and all efforts to. obtain in
formation as to her whereabouts have
proved unsuccessful. She left the home
of Mrs. Simon on the 13th of this month,
and not a word has since been received
When she left it was with the under
standing that she would return in a week,
and she also promised to write to her
friends while she was away. She said she
intended to go to Mill Valley, in Marin
County, to spend the week, and only took
along sufficient money to pny her railroad
fare and hotel bill for that time.
When no word was received from her,
her friends grew anxious, but thought
that as the weather was so fine she decided
to remain away longer than she first in
tended. After ten days had passed and
still no word was received from her, Mrs.
Simon thought that something was wrong
and made an effort to communicate with
her, but failed.
Mrs. Simon then wrote to Rev. Carl
Cordes of the Salem Evangelical (German)
Church, where she attended. The minis
ter said he had received no word from the
girl, thouch she had said she would write
to him. Mrs. Simon prevailed upon the
minister to go to Mill Valley and see if
she really was stopping there. Yesterday
Key. Mr. Cordes went to Mill Valley and
inquired at all the hotels in order to see if
any woman answering her description had
been boarding there within the last two
His search was in vain. No woman an
swering her description had been at the
hotels, and he was compelled to return to
the City without having found a trace of
Miss Funk is a rather good-looking
young woman, about 2-1 years of age, and
has worked for Mrs. Simon for nine years.
She came from Philadelphia and has al
ways been hardworking and honest. She
has had no troubles, and no reason for her
strange actions can be given by any of her
friends. Mrs. Simon is completely at a
loss to understand why the girl should not
write and let her know of her where
When seen yesterday afternoon Mrs.
Simon was somewhat reticent. She ad
mitted she was somewhat anxious about
the girl, but thought that she would turn
up all right.
"I have received no word from her,"
said she, "but it may be possible that she
is sick somewhere and unable to write."
Mr. Simon said that he did not want to
have any publicity, as the girl would un
doubtedly turn up all right in the end.
He said "that the girl had always been
honest and he did not know of any
troubles she had.
"The girl has many friends," said he,
"and they will look into the matter at
once, but I will say nothing further, as I
do not desire to get the matter into the
newspapers. I recognize their influence
in helping relatives and others in finding
persons that are missing, but in this case,"
said he, "it might be doing the girl more
harm than goo<l. lam confident that she
will turn, up all right in the end."
The Rev. Carl Cordes has communi
cated with a large number of Miss Funk's
friends, but he can find absolutely no trace
of her from the time she left Mrs, Simon's
house on the 13th inst., at half-past 2 in
He Was Charged With Embezzle
ment by the Columbia
His Relatives Say He Took Passage for
Europe on a Ship Last
F. Greenwald, the traveling agent for
the Columbia mills, who was arrested
three weeks ago on the charge of embezzle
ment, has disappeared.
After his arrest and arraignment before
Judge Joachimsen he was given his liberty
on his own recognizance. Since then his
friends have not been idle. They have
labored zealously in his behalf, and one of
the results may be found in the circum
stance of his disappearance. He had no
money and owed every one who would
trust him, and, it would have been impos
sible for him to leave the City without
The crime of which he is charged is of
a doubtful character, so far as the capabil
ity of his accusers to prove their allega
tions is concerned. The -alleged embezzle
ment consisted of his selling his commu
tation ticket, in order to get money on
which to travel and pay the hotel and
other bills incurred while discharging his
duties as traveling salesman for the Co
The company claims that he had a fixed
amount of money to defray all the ex
penses of his trip. He says he was very
short; in fact, to use the commercial trav
eler's term, strapped, and had to resort to
the means employed to get out of the town
where the transaction took place.
That Greenwald has disappeared is
known to ail his friends and acquaintances,
but his relatives and closest Iriends only
are aware af the manner of his going. He
boarded a ship bound for some European
port a week ago yesterday, so his brother
in-law, Mr. Shoenwasser of the firm of
Shoenwasser, Davis & Co., says. It is
obvious he is traveling on the funds which
his friends provided, as he was known to
have nothing. His wife and two children
are provided for by relatives.
Mr. Shoenwasser, the absent traveling
man's brother-in-law, said yesterday that
Greenwald had no cause to flee from the
wrath of justice. "The charge of embez
zlement," he said, "could not have been
proved, and the onh reason that I can as
cribe for his course is that he did not want
to stay and face his numerous creditors
after the public disgrace of his arrest. Bat
the whole trouble originated in the nig
gardly salary allowed him by his employ
ers. They did not give him enough to en

pay the expenses of maintaining his do

A college fraternity alumni association

last night. Graduates of the University
of California, of Stanford University and
of several Eastern colleges assembled to
perfect the organization of the California
Alumni of Phi Gamma Delta, more famil
iarly known as "The Fijis."
This fraternity is one of the older Greek
letter secret societies, having been organ
ized in IMS. It has chapters in forty-five
universities and colleges in the United
States, and is strongly represented at both
Berkeley and Palo Alto.
The charter membership of the new
alumni chapter is made up largely of
graduates of the State University, although
Stanford and quite a number of Eastern
institutions are represented.
W. H. Hammon, the Jocal weather fore
cast official, was elected president of the
new association; J. B. Palmer, vice-presi
dent; Edward B. Hill and Archie B. Rice,
secretaries; F. V. Brooks, historian, arjd
J. E. Pope, W. P. Humphreys Jr. and

THE SCHAFER SHOOTING
Ante-Mortem Statement Made
by the Dying Woman
Schafer Continues Morose and Sul
len and Refuses to Answer
Mrs. Mary Schafer, who was shot three
times by her aged husband at 1321 Larkin
street on Wednesday night, is still alive,
although the physicians say that she can
not possibly recover. They say that
either of the two wounds would prove
Yesterday morning it was decided by
the police to get her to make a proper ante
mortem statement. This was accordingly
done in the presence of Officer Haneman
and Dr. Helms and it was transcribed and
signed by her and duly witnessed. It is
practically the same as was published in
Tiie Call yesterday morning.
She is perfectly conscious and calmly
waits death. She made her will yester
day morning and twice during the day was
visited by a clergyman. Last night she
asked that Dr. J. Soboslay, the physician
of a Foresters' lodge of which she is a
member, should be sent for, and when he
called she gave him instructions about the
disposition of some papers, which she had
locked up in a bureau drawer in her room
at 1321 Larkin street.
The poor woman seems to suffer more
from her husband's unfounded jealousy
than from the. pain of her wounas. For
the past eight weeks he had been crazy
with drink, and life with him was becom
ing intolerable. He did not threaten her
with violence till Tuesday, when he told
her he would like to cut her heart out.
Then when he got the letter on Wednesday
from Robert Gutlo telling him that his
wife was a good woman the climax came,
as he charged her with writing the letter.
Woman-like, she freely forgives him for
what he has done.
Several ladies who lived in the same
house with the Schafers called to see her
at the hospital yesterday. They said they
never heard the couple quarrel and that to
all appearance they lived happily to
gether. They spoke highly of Mrs. Schafer
whom they all liked and respected.
Schafer has meantime been charged with
assault to murder. He continues sullen
and morsse and positively refuses to
answer any questions as to what prompted
him to commit the deed. When sDoken
to his language is more forcible than
Two men called upon him yesterday
afternoon to arrange with him for a trans

some small boys in a vacant lot at the cor

Becker had been a clerk in the grocery
store of D. Becker & Co., at the corner of
Sutter and Leavenworth streets. He had
been drinking for some time and finally
went to the Home of the Inebriates, which
he left about a week ago, though Dr.
Potter thought he should have remained
longer. He continued drinking and be
came very dtspondent.
Mr. Becker lived at 718 Leavenworth
street. He has a brother, John Henry
Becker, a grocer, who lives at 6:24 Taylor
street. Deceased was 35 years of age and
He left no word of his intention of tak
ing his life. But at his side was a soda
bottle from which the contents had been
drained. It is thought that he took poison
and used the soda to wash the drug down.
A post-mortem examination will be held
to rind the exact cause of death.

chaaces were ruined by a bad fall ihat
threw him several yards down the hill.

BOXING AT COLMA.
Why Fistic Sport Is Knocked on the
Head in San Blateo
The Board of . Supervisors of San Mateo
County has put its foot down upon any
further boxing contests being held in San
Mateo County under the auspices of the
San Mateo Athletic Club. *It appears that
a young man named Young Mitchell
desirous of introducing a second boxing
club, and as the ; peopie of San Mateo
County objected to 'an \ invasion of fistic
contests the attention of the Supervisors
of the county, was attracted :to what
promised to be a prize-fighting settlement.
* Owing to Mr. Mitchell's interference it
is. now announced that there will be no
more ■ sport of % that character . either .at
Colma or in any other part of this county.
The Board of Supervisors of San Francisco
County have intimated that it will : remove'
its official sanction to the exhibitions that
are periodically held at Colma.
There is a county ordinance in .exist
ence which provides for the holding of ex
hibitions of skill or endurance, but some
of the Supervisors maintain that recent
set-tos at Colma have been clearly in vio
lation the law. ' v ■-'.■ v •-< - v
Sheriff McEvoy, who officially referees
the Colma fights, has endeavored to draw
the line between prize-fighting and harm
less sparring, and an error in judgment on
one side has frequently exposed him to the
contempt of either the sporting element
or the law-abiding citizens. '■/"
... Consequently; Mr. McEvoy is anxious to
give up the job. Three of the Supervisors
have expressed themselves in favor of re
scinding the glove contest law. The mat
ter will be heard probably next Monday.
