HONESTY THE BEST POLICE
The Stewards Deal Severely
With Jobbers at Ingleside
GOOD CONTESTS YESTERDAY.
Imp. Star Ruby and Peter the Second
Furnish a Very Exciting
The old adage that a "new broom sweeps
clean" is being applied with vigorous ef
fect by the new Pacific Coast Jockey Club.
If good clean racing, free from jobbery,
can be given to the public, the club in
tends that they shall have it. After an
exhaustive inquiry into Monday's hurdle
race, in which all bets were declared off,
the stewards have meted out severe sen
tences to those that they think the evi
dence justifies in finding guilty of crook
edness in connection with the race. The
event has been declared no race, and the
owners of horses that ran in the affair are
not liable for jockey fees, neither will the
association stand liable for the purse. J.
Johnson, the rider of J O C, and Good
man, who rode Three Forks, are ruled off
the turf. The horse Morgan G is also
ruled off the turf. No more entries will be
received from the Arizona stable, in whose
name Three Forks ran, but in any of the
club's stakes where the stable has entries
their horses will be allowed to start. The
i stable, in whose colors J O C ran,
is exonerated from all blame in the mat
ter. It is suspected that W. Clancy, who
rode Morgan d, owns an interest in* Three
Forks and he stands suspended pending
Morgan G started in Monday's race
under the name of W. Covington, but it
had been proven beyond doubt that John
son, who rode the favorite J 0 C, was the
actual owner ot the jumper. W. Coving
ton (Batch) was called beiore the stewards
and admitted that Johnson came to him
and ask< j d permission to start the horse in
his (Covington'B) name in Monday's race,
later giving Covington a bill of sale for the
animal, pricing him at $300. Covington

A large crowd enjoyed some excellent
racing yesterday. The* tine weather is fast
drying the track, although it was still a
trifle heavy for any fast time. The Corri

race was the only winning favorite, second
and third choices and outsiders capturing
The opening ra?e was somewhat in the
nature of a surprise, for Allahabad, a 15
to 1 shot ridden by Piggott, won by a head
in a drive from May Day, the second
choice. Braw Scot finished fourth.
Starting at 3 to 5, Kowalsky easily dis-
I posed of the nine youngsters pitted against
j him in a rive-furlong dash. He won by
two open lengths easily, with imp. En
dymion in the place.
"Again did the Ccrrigan stable furnish a
hot favorite forthe third race at seven fur-
I longs in the speedy Olive, who was backed
from 4 to sto 1 to 2. The be>t she could do
was to finish second to Belle Boyd, an 8
! to 1 chance, who led all the way round and
i won by a length.
The"otl:er events on the programme were
I overshrouded by the fourth at a mile,
with four rattling good ones sporting silk.
: Basso ruled fourth in the ring at 7 to 5,
: with Peter tue Second a strong 8 to 5 sec

for a furlonc, when Chorn gave Star Ruby

|at his heels. Star Ruby had a sligiH ad
vantage into the stretch, with Peter two
lengths behind Basso. Sloan, on Peter
j the Second, now made his ride, and pass
i Ing Basso, soon had the leader driving.
! Through hard riding, Chorn managed to

! through Sloan's poor judgment. Basso
was a good third.
The last race was a five and a half fur-
long riash— with Lucky Dog a 7 to 10
favorite. Starter Caldwell dropped his flag
to a straggling start, and the unreliable
son of Darebin never was a factor. Bar

Imp. Endvmion, one of the second choices

the number on the saddle cloth became

for that of Elsie, a 100 to 1 chance, and
placed her second. The caller made his

paying off. Imp. Endymion's owners

WAR IN THE COMPANIES.
Many of the Guardsmen Object
to the Consolidation
The Fight for the Colonelcy Becoming
Interesting — The Armory
The superior commanders who effected
the regimental reorganization of the Na
tional Guard in the City on last Saturday
are now considerably concerned over the
bitter feeling which the consolidation of
rival companies has engendered. In mak
ing the battalion formation a number of
the companies were ordered to combine
their membership roll 3 and hereafter do
military service in double strength and
under command of a captain designated
at headquarters. The companies selected
for tbis compulsory amalgamation have
not taken kindly to the scheme and sev-
eral serious rows are ah-eady in progress.
Captain Shafer is one of the officers who
vigorously object to the consolidation.
Shaft r was the commander of Company D
of the First Infantry before the reorgani
zation. Under the provisions of the new
order his company is merged into B of the
old regiment and consequently loses its
identity and its officers. The men of
what was formerly Company D are up in
arms against the forced combination.
They hold that such action was entirely
unwarranted, and that their strength,
efficiency, history and promise of success
should have counted in their favor.
Captain Shafer was at the California
Hotel yesterday and interviewed General
Wartieid about the trouble. To a Call re
porter he said: "We were not given a fair
deal. It was an outrageous piece of busi
ness all around, and if there's any way to
get out of the mess my men and I propose
to do so. I have seen General Warrield
and he teJls me I will have to see
the Adjutant-General. It wasn't a square
deal by any means. They talk of having
selected companies with records and effi
cient members for continued service in the
guard. It's all rank nonsense. My com
pany has a record which will compare
favorably with that of any company in the
service. For over thirty jnars it has boen
doing pood work and now it is thrown out
to make place for companies far below it
inthercaleof military efficiency. It was
not a square deal. But then Company D
is not quite dead yet."
The right for the colonelcy of the new
infantry regimentis already waxing vigor
ous. In the old Second Artillery the of
ficers have declared themselves in favor of
Colonel Macdonald. except Captain O'Neill,
who has not committed himsrlf to a selec
tion. Part of the former First Infantry
will have Colonel Bush and Lieutenant-
Colonel Crocker in the race. The
"Nationals" are understood to. be
out for Tilden, who was once caDtain of
Company G. In the battalion which
remains of the Third Infantry, Colonel
O'Connor and Lieutenant-Colonel Smith
hay« friends who will place them in line.
Lieutenant-Colonel Geary is looked upon
as a likely candidate. Colonel W. P. Snl
livan may be entered in the fight, and there
are others about whom not much is yet
known. From all indications the contest
will be more exciting iind memorable than
any ever held in the National Guard.
The matter of an armory for the 12
--company regiment is another topic of
lively discussion. At present there is no
building l.iri^e enough to accommodate
the entire force. It is believed, however,
that the board of location will direct that
the companies of the old First Regiment,
which are now at Market and Tenth
streets, remove to the armory at Page and
Gough streets. The two companies of the
okl Third, now on Golden Gate avenue,
will be sent to the Nationals' armory on
Ellis street. This arrangement will locate
the regiment in two armories, eight com
panies quartering on Page street and four
on Eilis street.

THE INSTITUTE TRUSTEES

HE WILL PUSH HIS CHARGES.
Joseph Leggett Has Something to Say
About the Lick Dona
L.Ernest Phillips, the attorney who at a
meeting of members of the Mechanics' In
stitute introduced a resolution looking
toward an investigation of the affairs of
that institution, announces that, notwith
standing the failure to adopt the measure,
he proposes to push the matter, and if the
trustees do not order an investigation
he will bring it before the courts and the
He also announces tha t it is the purpose
to secure five new trustees to replace an
equal number now in the board, but that
Andrew Hallidie and Grove P. Ayers are
not of the five.
"Discouraged by the vote taken on the
motion to adopt the resolution last Satur
day night?" repeated Mr. Phillips yester
day, "So, sir; not at all. On the con
trary, we intend to push this matter and
inquire into &VVJ charge thai was con
tained in the resolutions that were offered,
and if we cannot get the trustees to order
an investigation we will carry the matter
into the courts and then before the Grand
Jury. The institute is run by the solid
live — no, I should say the solid four, as
there is one that is on the fence, and we
propose to elect five trustees who will con
duct the affairs in the interest oi the mem
"By we," said Mr. Phillips in reply to a
question, "I refer to two other very promi
nent members of the institute who are
with me in this movement, but whose
names I do not care to divulge at this
time for prudential reasons. It was at
their instance that I presented the resolu
tion, with the understanding that not a
word should be said in favor of it. It was
just as a feeler to see who would favor it and
who would oppose it. I have the names
of all who opposed it. Is it not a little
strange that a body of men, trustees of an
institution like this one, should oppose a
proposition to hold an investigation when
such charges are made?
"We propose to have all the charges
looked into; we want to rind out what has
become of the 4uyO or more books that
have disappeared in rive years. I only
charged 3500, in order to be safe within
the limit. "We want to know why $105,000
was paid in 1579 for the Folsom-street
property, which was not worth $50,U00 at
that time and is not worth that now. We
want to know why $14,4(54 was paid for
alterations in the Post-street building when
there are half a duzen competent men will
ing to make affidavit that the ?ame could be
made for $10,000, and we want to learn
about the distribution of patronage, and
on that point we wiil present one if not a
number of affidavits.
"As far as I am concerned I have no fear
in this matter, as I am a life member of
the institute. Leggett and Cummins are
running the affair oti the single-tax prin
ciple, and by the preferential system they
have introduced and the Congressman
Maguire ideas they want to perpetuate
themselves in office.
"Many of the bot>ks. I believe, were lost

they force him to do just what they
During the meeting on Saturday there
was an intimation that there were good
reasons why some of the trustees had re
signed. Of these Mursden Manson re
signed because he had received a Govern
ment appointment t»nd could not devote
his time to the institute. The others who
resigned were H. T. Bush, Will E. Fisher
Mr. Fisher said that be resigned because
he was in the minority in the board.
"That is," said Mr. Fisher, "the minds of
the majority were not in touch with mine
and I came to the conclusion that it would
be useless for me to waste my time at
meetings. Ido not want any one to think
I am a crank because others do not agree
with me, nor do I wish to be understood
as attacking the honesty and integrity of
the members of the board. lam still a
member of the institute and intend to re
main one until I die."
Trustee Joseph Leggett said that the
whole matter was a tempest in a teapot,
produced by Phillips, who wanted to keep
before the people. "'This man," he said,
"wanted to De a trustee once and he made
all sorts of promises and had slips of pa
per printed telling what he would do and
how he would have an elevator built for
the benefit of the ladies, and I know not
what, but he was not elected.
"In regard to the money contributed by
James Lick for the purchase of mechanical
and scientific books, that was a matter
that this board had nothing to do with ;
but I will say that while the books have
been purchased a mistake was made in not
placing some mark on them to show that
they were purchased with the donation.
That much at least was due to the donor.
Of course, a portion of this money was
used to payoff an indebtedness; but by
using the money that way a great deal of
interest was saved. Still the money should
have been borrowed, as the university bor
rows from its separate funds. Ido not be
lieve that there was anything wrong in the
"Now, about the resignation of the trus
tees. Those gentlemen will no doubt give
their reasons when asked. Mr. Barclay,
one of them, who had been placed on the
committee on music and decoration, sug
gested a plan of decoration that had been
adopted at Santa Cruz— that of placing
bunches of colored paner in meshes of
wire— ana his suggestion was adopted.
The work was started, but it appeared that
if continued the Pavilion would be the
laughing stock of the City, and it was
stopped. The gentleman found consider
able responsibility resting on his shoul
ders, so he resigned.
"The charge of books having been stolen
from the shelves', if true, is one that should
not hays been made, because it is suggest
ing to evil-minded people that there is a
place where they can steal books.
"The fact that only three or four mem
bers voted for the resolution is oroof that
they did not attach much importance to it.
There is nothing that this board has any
fear of, and most of the matters in the
resolution refer to previous boards."
P. J. He.ily, who was present at the
meeting and will be a candidate for trustee
at the next election, said that Phillips is
an agitator who always wants to come to
the front. He defended the preferential
system, declaring thai it prevents tho for
mation of parties or cliques, and that any
member who can obtain the signatures of
twenty-five members in good standing can
be a candidate, and his name must be
placed on the ticket.
"That system prevents men from per
petuating "themselves in office, for it gives
every one a chance, but last year, out of
4000 members, only fourteen took advan
tage of that system. Phillips is wild when
he charges that 3500 books have disap
peared from the shelves. I believe that
some time ago figures were presented
which show the number is under 1000
since the institute library was opened. As
to the purchase of the Folsom-street prop
erty, I do not believe that there was any
corruption in the purchase. The same
board that bought that bought the Larkin
street lot, and what may have been lost on
the one has more than been made up by
the increase in value of the other. The
Folsom-street property, I think, will rise
in value when the cars run along Six
teenth street to the Potrero."
A LUCKY MISTAKE.
Charles Ward, Charged With Bribes?,
Scores a Point.
The case of Charles W. Ward, convicted
by the Stockton courts of having bribed
one of the Supervisors, has been remanded
to the Superior Court by the Supreme
Court with instructions to sustain the de
murrer to the indictment which had pre
viously been overruled.
Theindictment was demurred to on the
ground that it did not charge any specific
act of bribery, but merely in general terms
alleged that the defendant had "bribed" a
certain Supervisor to do a certain thing.
It must be shown, tbe Supreme Court
holds, that there was a felonious act, and
this must be shown in explicit terms. The
demurrer is therefore ordered sustained.
NO CAUSE FOR ALARM
Dr. Williamson Tells Why
Typhoid Fever Cases Were
The Statement in a Morning Paper
That Typhus Fever Was Epi
demic Is Incorrect.
The twenty-five cases of typhoid fever
reported to the Board of Health, from De
cember 3 to 9. inclusive, have not created
any undue excitement in the ranks of the
One reason for this is found in the fact
that there are no records by which the
present situation can be judged. It is only
within the past two weeks that the Board
of Health, at the request of Dr. William
son, notified the physicians to report all
typhoid fever cases coming under their no
tice. There are some who think that in a
city as large as San Francisco twenty-five
cases in six days is not sufficient cause for
alarm, though tiere are others who claim
that if the record is correct there most be
something wrong, either in the sanitary
condition of the City or in its food sup
ply—meaning by this, milk and water.
"It is only within the last two weeks
that the pnysicians have been notified to
! report all typhoid cases," said Dr. Wil
liamson yesterday. "It is impossible for
me to suy whether twenty-five cases in six
days is an abnormal number or not, be
cause there are no records by which com
parisons can be made.
"There has been so much talk about im
pure water and adulterated milk that it
was thought advisable to keep a record of
diseases most largely influenced by them.
It is impossible to tell at this time whether
the cases reported to the Board of Health
are due to either one or both these causes.
On the other hand, it is quite possible that
the sanitary condition of the places where
fever has been reported is the responsible
! agent. All these matters are being inves
tigated, and a report will be made as early
Dr. Williamson further stated that in
view of the fact that typhoid cases came
from all parts of the City it was quite
probable the real cause would be found in
the use of impure water.
The cases so far reported were found on
I the following streets: Ellis, Valley, Guer
! rero, Willow avanue, First, Sanchez, Oak,
j Eleventh. Greenwich, Devisadero, Cres
! cent avenue, Wood, Eddy, German, Fol
som, Fulton, Franklin and Hickory ave
nue. Nine of the cases are under 20 years
I of ape, two being 4 years old, one 7 and a
! third just 15. In five cases reported no
age is given. The largest number came in
December 5, seven being reported on that
day. On the day following five cases
The statement made in a morning paper
that typhus fever was epidemic in this
City is entirely erroneous. There has been
no typhus fever in San Francisco during
the present year.

THIEVING HIS PASTIME.
Sebastian Rameis, Son of a Guate
mala Planter, in a Bad
BOBBED HIS FELLOW-ROOMERS.
He Tried to Poison Himself and Will
Now Have to Answer a Charge
S. F. O'Mally, 512 Bush street, swore out
a warrant in Judge Conlan's court yester
day for the arrest of Sebastian Kameison
the charge of burglary.
Rameis is the son of a planter in Guate
mala and came here about a year ago to
finish his education. He engaged rooms
at 707 Post street and was looked upon by
his fellow-roomers as a nice youth.
It was not locg before they began to
miss articles of jewelry and money from
their rooms. J. O'Neill, a horseman, had
a $20 gold piece stolen out of his trousers
pocket while he was asle p. Christian F.
Petersen, a clerk, had his gold watch and
chain, diamond ring and $80 in coin stolen
from the top of his dressing table.
O'Mally fared worse than the others. A
box in his room was forced open and a
gold watch and chain, two gold rings, two
gold crosses, a shamrock pin, a silk muf
fler and valuable papers stolen.
Suspicion fell upon Willie Hynes, a boy
who used to do odd jobs around the house.
Willie left for Stockton about three months
ago, and that confirmed the suspicion. He
was arrested ana brought back to this
City, but he was able to show conclusively
that he was not the thief, and the case
against him was dismissed.
All this tin:e no suspicion attached to
Rameis, as it was not thought that the son
of a wealthy planter would do such a
thing. Last Thursday, however, O'Mally
met Rameis and discovered that he bad
his silk muffler around his neck. He
charged Rameis with stealing it and
threatened to have him arrested. Rameis
protested his innocence and got away from
O'Mally as quickly as possible. He hur
ried tohis room at 707 Post street, and
preferring death to being publicly dis
graced be swallowed a dose of arsenic.
He was taken to the Receiving Hospital
and Dr. Fitzgibbon applied the usual rem
edies and saved his life. The emetics had
to be administered by force as Rameis re
fused to swallow them, saying he wished
Tiie following day be was sent to the City
and County Hospital, where he is siowiy
recovering. As soon as he has sufficiently
recovered he will be locked up in the City
Besides the muffler O'Mally says he has
other j ositive evidence that .Rameis was the
thief. Petersen will also probably swear
out a warrant apainst him for grand lar
ceny as he has witnesses who saw Kanieis
wearing that diamond ring that was stolen
Arrested for Passing Counterfeit Money.
A long-haired proprietor of a shooting
gallery, J. F. Folster by name, was arrested on
complaint of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Smith of 120
Gran i avenue yesterday by Secret Service
Agent Harris for passing counterfeit money.
He was commuted to jail by United States
Commissioner iieacock in default of $500
bonds pending his preliminary examination,
which will occur to-morrow morning. Smith,
who is a restaurateur, says Folster passed a bad
dollar on him, aud Mrs. Smith says he suc
ceeded in inducing her to accept a counterfeit
half dollar. FolsU-r's shooting-gallery was
next door, and according to his neighbors in
the restaurant business Folster was having
considerable success in passing the "queer"
upon such of his patrons as had anything like
a "hayseed" appenrance.
