REPUBLICANS OF
NEVADA CONVENE,
Send Unpledged Delegates
to the Convention at
St. Louis.
DECLARE FOR SILVER.
Sixteen-to-One Clause Inserted in
the Platform After an
Argument.
PROTECTION IS DEMANDED.
Resolutions Favor the Displacement of
the State Senators and Repre
sentatives.
VIRGINIA CITY, Nev., May 9.-Nevada
Republicans held their State convention,
to elect six delegates and six alternates to
the Republican National Convention, at
National Guard Hall this afternoon. They
sent an unpledged delegation to St. Louis,
and atter a heated sortie included a '*16 to
1" clause in the financial plank ot tne reso
lutions.
The convention was called to order by
Hon. Trenmor Coftin, chairman of the
Republican State Central Committee. Ex-
Governor R. K. Colcord was chosen tem
porary chairman and E. D. Vanderiieth
temporary secretary. They were after
ward made permanent officers. Mr. Col
cord, on assuming the chair, appointed
the usual committees.
After a short adjournment, the majority
report of the platform committee was read
and a motion to adopt it made. The
minority report was offered as a substitute
by Delegate Col burn of Virginia.
The platform contained in the majority
report congratulated the people of the
State and country on the prospect of a Re
public Presidential victory; favored the
restoration of currency as it stood prior
to 1873; recommended the displacement of
Nevada's Senators and Representatives as
non-residents; favored tariff protection
and protection for American labor; op
posed interference with non-sectarian
schools and the giving of aid to
sectarian schools: favored National leg
islation to control pauper immigration
and immigration of people holding views
opposed to the American form of govern
ment: favored a change in the naturaliza
tion laws, requiring as a qualification of
citizenship seven years' residence on the
part of foreigners and ability to read the
constitution of the United States;
favored an unpledged delegation to
the National Republican Convention.
The minority report differed from the
majority in that it contained the clause,
"Silver at the ratio of 16 to 1," which the
currency plank in the majority report did
not. The minority report was confined to
the currency plank.
The matter was finally settled by an
anendment to the currency plank, to the
effect that the convention "favored free
and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio
of IB to 1." The report was then adopted.
The following delegates were elected:
J. B. Overton, Storey County; A. C. Cleve
land, White Pine County; G. F. Turretin,
Elko County; Enoch Strother. Storey; C.
H. Sproule, Elko, and W. D. Phillips,
Washoe.

ecutive committee and conncil of thirty of

feast to-night over the closing of accounts
of the greatest fiesta ever held in Califor

of the ledger.
Everybody in authority was coneratu
lated and had beautifully worded resolu
tions thrust upon them. President Francis
blushed like a sixteen-year-old maiden at
the eulogy bestowed upon him, but it was
all deserved. The following resolutions
were passed:
Whereas, Experience has shown that 1a
Fiesta de Los Angeles is a most valuable means
of attracting widespread attention to Los An
geles and Southern California, and thereby
has become a public enterprise of vital im
portance to this section:
Rrtolved, Thin it is the sense of the committee
of thirty that the annual celebration of La
Fiesta de Log AngHps be perpetuated, and that
its management should be continued by the
Chaint>er of Commerce, Merchants' Association
and Board o{ Trade upon the same lines and
principles as thut just closed, subject to such
minor changes as may be decided upon.
The fiesta executive committee of this
city has lonir been debating what beautiful
gift it could make the Queen of the late

admiration. A loving cup has been de
cided upon, and a beautiful one has been
ordered and will be suitably inscribed and
given to Queen Mildred at an early date.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, MAY 10, 1896.
MADERA GUN
CLUB MEMBERS,
Confidence in Their Winning
Honors at the Fresno
Shoot To-Day.
BIRDS AND BLUEROCKS.
All the Central Counties of the
Valley to Contest in the
Big Tournament.
IN SIX INTERESTING EVENTS.
First Annual Tournament of the
Fresno Sportsmen's Club— The
Crack Shots.
MADERA, Cal., May 9. -A great deal
of interest is taken here in the big bird
and bluerock shooting event at Fresno
to-morrow morning. Several counties will
be represented by teams, in fact all the
central valley counties are expected to
send their best gun shots. It is known
that at least the Sanger, Visalia, Hanford,
Fresno and Madera clubs will be well rop
resented at the tournament of the Fresno
Sportsman's Clnb. This is the first annual
event given by the Fresno ciub, but from
the evidences of success already shown, it
is pretty certain not to be the last annual
event. The tournament will begin at 9
o'clock in the morning at the Fair Grounds
in Fresno, and there are six features on
the programme. The first three of these
are with live birds, and the last three with
bluerocks, and there are substantial
puses for the first, second and third win
ner of each shoot.
None but members of gun clubs are eligi
ble to shoot, and the rules of the American
Shooting Association are to govern. H.
V. Armitage, A. F. Naber, A. Riley are
the members of the tournament commit
tee for the Fresno Sportsman's Club. Only
eight members of the Madera Club will
take part in the big inter-county shoot,
but it is quite likely that a very large per
centage of all the members will attend the
tournament as guests of the Fresno Club.
Madera's Club is composed entirely of
the well-known business and professional
men of this city.
D. B. Horace, president of the club, is
one of the largest vineyard ists and ranch
ers in this part of the country.
J. B. Meloche, the secretary and treas
urer, is the Public Administrator of Madera
County, and a real estate and insurance
broker. The other members of the club
are:
A. H. Woolery, a well-known citizen,
and the best shot in the county.
Francis A. Fee, ex-District Attorney.
John J. Roberts, ion of the president of
the Commercial Bank of Madera.
William Krohn, the County Tax Col
lector.
Joseph Barcroft, hardware merchant.
E. H. Cox, cashier Commercial Bank of
Madera.
S. T. Alderson, dealer in cigars and
tobacco.
R. L. Gryder, proprietor of tonsorial par
lors.
G. F. Cramer, retail liquor merchant.
W. F.^Waddell, wheelwright and wagon
maker.
B. C. Fisher, master mechanic in the
Madera sash, door and blind factory.
W. C. Tighe, clothing merchant.
8. D. Tooker, retail liquor dealer.
E. E. Wilcox, Auditor of Madera County.
E. Puph, proprietor of tonsorial parlors.
J. W. Rajesdale, dealer in general mer
chandise.
The Madera Gun Club is one of the in
stitutions of this city, and of the entire
county for that matter, and it is confident^
ly expected that the eight crack shots se
lected to take part in the tournament at
Fresno to-morrow will not return without
at least its fair share of prizes.
HOLD-UP AT SAN JOSE.
A Footpad Frightened by the Overturning
of His Intended Victim's
Carriage.
SAN JOSE, Cal., May 9.— An attempt
was made to hold up A. A. Smith, the
groceryman, at the corner of Willow street
and Myrtle avenue at a late hour last
night. Smith was driving home in a
buggy, and as he neared the corner a man
armed with two revolvers jumped out in
front of him and commanded him to halt.
The horse became frightened, and, wheel
ing suddenly, crpsized the buggy. This
was more than the robber expected, and
he fled in the darkness.
Smith was cauirht in the rig and dragged
about fifty feet. The horse was stopped
and put into its stable, but this morning
it was found that the animal's legs were
broken, and the horse will probably have
to be shot.

STOCKTON, Cal., May 9.— A. W.
Booth, who has been employed as a res
taurant cook in Del Monte Rostaurant on

ing by John O'Keefe, a well-known char
acter about town, the latter using an ax

cution put on the stand a large num
ber of witnesses from southwestern
Trinity County and the neighborhood of

recess until Monday morning, when, it is
thought, the prosecution will be ready to

MISS BELINFANTE WEDS,
Sequel to the Sensational Love
Story of the Blind Italian
Singer.
They Met Two Months Ago in Hong
kong and He Fell in Love at
First Sight.
The sequel to a romantic story of love at
first sight took place yesterday when
Estelle Belinfante, the blind contralto,
was married to R. Edminster, the Wfll
known agent, who has arranged for her
concerts since her arrival here from the
Orient.
Of course the expression, "Love at first
sight," must be used advisedly in the
young lady's case, because she is slowly
losing even the sense of distinguishing
day from night, and could not tell, except
from the remarks of other people, what a
dashing, good-looking young fellow Ed
minster was.
It was the agent who fell in iove at first
sight and made love so persistently that
his ardor was rewarded yesterday by the
marriage above mentioned.
The couple met about two months ago
in Hongkong. Edminster, who has been
for live years with the well-known im
pressario, Major Pond, had gone to the
Orient as agent for Ovide Musin, and was
atxmt to embark for home again when he
met the handsome young contralto, who
had just come from a successful concert
tour in Japan and Siberia.
Miss Belinfante's lady companion, wno
had accompanied her from Europe, had
contracted malaria in Hongkong and had
been forced to return to Italy. The singer
was alone and very helpless, in spite of
ncr independent spirit, when she and
Edminister met on the eve of embarkation
for San Francisco.
The agent fell in love on the spur of the
moment, and he was filled with satisfac
tion to learn that Miss Belinfante was to
sail in the steamer in which he had ar
ranged to travel. There were a thousand
ways in which he could render himself
useful and acceptable to her on the voy
age, and he did not neglect one of them.
He carried her deck chair, helped her
up and down tlie stairways, wrote her let
ters, read her correspondence and in fact
made himsalf almost indispensable to the
blind singer.
Since arriving in San Francisco the ar
dent swain has not slackened any of his
attentions, and though Miss Belinfante
was at first inclined to look upon him
with a merely platonic regard the mar
riage yesterday proves that he has it last
succeeded in persuading her to change her
opinion.
The fact is that the young lady has been
exceptionally sought after, and Edrninater
knew that his only chance lay in captur
ing his lady-iove wuile she was under the
spell of all the good offices and little
attentions he has so patiently performed
for tier.
Tne bride and groom leave to-day for
Chicago, where Mrs. Edminster will re
sume ncr profession of concert-giving.
Blazing Brandy.
A still alarm was turned in to Chemical En
gine No. 3 for a fire in Joseph Bender & Co.'s
wholesale liquor house, at 310 Sacramento
street, at 12:30 this morning.
When the firemen arrived arrived they found
that a couple of barreiS of cognac had caught
fire. The barrels were rolled into the street.
It was impossible to extinguish the flames,
and tne lire had to be allowed to burii itseh
out.
There was no damage to the building, but
the liquor destroyed was valued at about
$500.
SANTA BARBARA
DEAD ACCUSED,
Sensational Verdict in the
Joseph A. Kenny
Will Case.
VICTORY OF THE WIDOW
A Jury Declares That She Was
Defrauded by Her Late
Husband.
SIGNED AWAY THE PROPERTY.
Robbed by a Clause Inserted in a
Conditional Deed Before His
Death.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., May 9.— For
many months past an interesting caee, in
volving laree interests and important
legal issues, has been before the Superior
Court of this county, furnishing the text
for five separate suits. In 1892 Joseph A.
Kenney, a wealthy resident of this city,
died, leaving property valued at $65,000.
W. S. Parks and J. C. Kenney were ap
pointed executors of the estate, and when
the widow came to receive her portion she
was shown a deed executed by her husband
before his death and bequeathing his entire
estate to some thirty nephews and nieces,
leaving her only a life interest. To her
surprise she was confronted by her own
signature affixed to this document.
Mrs. Kenney remembered signing a deed
conveying to her husband all of her prop
erty in case her demise occurred during his
lifetime. This document, which was read
to her at the time she affixed her signature,
was a part of a mutual agreement, her
husband at the time making a similar con
veyance to her conditional upon her sur
vival of his death.
She absolutely denied having ever heard
or seen the clause limiting her interest in
the estate to a life lease and claimed that
this portion of the document she signed
was not read to her, nor would she
have signed it had she known it was em
bodied in the conveyance.
The two deeds were executed June 1,
1893. They were drawn by W. S. Bouton,
and by him read to Mrs. Kenney. The is
sues involved in the present case were
submitted to a jury and were decided as
follows:
First— Was the clause limiting the estate
granted to Mrs. Sarah J. Kenney to a life es
tate inserted therein with the knowledge of Jo
seph A. Kenney?
Answer— Yea.
Second— Was the said clause inserted in the
deed fraudulently as against Mrs. Keuney?
Answer— Yes.
Third— Did Joseph A. Kenney know or sus
pect that Mrs. Kenney believed 'the said deed
to be an absolute deed in fee simple?
Answer— Yes.
These decisions end the first chapter in
what bids fair to become a celebrated case.
They carry a grewsome suggestion, inas
much as they directly charge the dead
man with a felonious act. All of the es
tate involved was really Mrs. Kenney 's
separate property, being purchased with
$65,000 belonging to her at the time of her
marriage. An Indiana farm which was
her husband's separate property was
deeded by him to his own heirs with her
full consent and knowledge.

Just in the
Nick of Time
Another Week and William Hinchet of
Pasadena, Cal., Would Have Been
in a Serious Difficulty.
THE DOCTORS ALL DISAGREED.
A Singular Recovery From a Horrible
Stomach Trouble Which. Surpasses <
Many Fiction Stories— lt Is Vouched
for by Reputable People.
Every one knows that Pasadena is one
of the Dleasantlv situated resorts of Cali-
fornia. To the Eastern man it is a dream.
Midwinter sees fruits and flowers, luscious
and sweet-scented, in the open air. It is
his elysium. Nevertheless, in this veri-
table garden-spot one can have serious
trouble. William Hinchet comes from
the city of Chicago — big wind, lake and
bustle. He knew no one in Pasadena.
He came in search of health, and for a
time he prospered as well as any one
conld wish for. About two weeks ago he
was seized with colic and cramps and had
to call in a physician immediately. A
prescription was given to nim, and it was
thought that he would pull through in the
night and be fresh and easy by morning.
M< rning came, but Hincbet suffered still.
This began to look serious.
It was necessary to relieve the bowels,
as it was discovered that Hinchet had
been suffering from Chronic Constipation.
Temporary relief was afforded him, but
he grew worse. The doctors disagreed. It
was on the advice of an old woman that
Hinchet began to use a medicine called
JOY'S VEGETABLE SARSAPARILLA.
He took repeated doses of this herb rem-
edy in the night, and the next morning
his bowels began to move freely. Since i
this time Mr. Hinchet has been using
JOY'S VEGETABLE SARSAPARILLA,
and now he is well and doing well. He
praised the HOME REMEDY,
JOY'S VEGETABLE SARSAMRILU.
Though the doctors remained puzzled.
WHY JOY'S VEGETABLE SARSA-
PARILLA IS SO EFFECTUAL IN CON-
STITUTIONAL TREATMENT. In it
you have the active principles of Vegeta-
ble drugs that act directly and mildly on
the organs of digestion, the li/er, kidneys
and bowels. It contains no mercury,
iodide of potash, to ruin the membranes
of the stomach and bowels and to cause
your bones to ache.
Beware of lodide or Potassium. No
good Sarsaparllla contains lodide of

Has Been the Practice of Medicine
and Surgery in San Francisco
by Dr. Sweany.
THE STORY OF HIS SUCCESS.
The Great Specialist Has Made Life Anew to Thousands and Tens
of Thousands Who Had Been Given Up by Other Physi-
cians — His Specialties and Mode of Treatment.
DOCTOR SWEANY,
737 Market Street, San Francisco, Cal.
By his skill as a specialist Dr. Sweany has completely revolutionized
the practice of medicine and Sursrery In San Francisco.
Standing to-day as he does far In advance of any specialist or medical
Institution In the country, his wonderful success and skill Is the out-
growth of several conditions by which alone what he has done in San
Francisco could be accomplished.
First, the qualifications with which nature has endowed him, as evi-
denced by his keen perception Into the mysteries of all diseases with
which those who apply to him are afflicted. He is thus enabled to clearly
distinguish the exact character of the complaint and to conceive the
proper and most effective kind of treatment for Its entire cure.
Second, he Is wholly devoted to his profession, havingr no other desire
for achievement than to make still grander the complete success which
he has thus far attained. His great stability of character, his unceasing
study and untiring energy to accomplish that which he sets out to do,
together with many more great and noble qualities which one soon recog-
nizes In him, all serve to advance him In his most worthy ambition.
Third, his great advantages of study and experience In the leading and
best colleges and hospitals In the land, where he served In all depart-
ments and where his great natural ability was acknowledged In all
branches as being superior to his quite worthy, but] less successful asso-
ciates, have all helped to assist him in his work.
Is It any wonder that with all of these advantages In his favor, natural
ability, study, experience and a mind devoted to his profession. Dr.
Sweany should have achieved his enviable reputation for curing distress-
Ing and obstinate cases which had been given up as Incurable ?
The Doctor has made a life-long study and practice of all sexual ail-
ments of young, middle-aged and old men. He also gives special attention
to diseases of the eye, ear, head, heart, throat, stomach, liver and bowels,
kidneys, bladder and urinary organs. His success In the treatment of all
these diseases has been really phenomenal, and what Is more he guaran-
tees a perfect cure in every case heundertakes.
As yet no case of failure can be discovered against him, and such abil-
ity and skill to combat and conquer all diseases of men and women have
never before been demonstrated.
The Doctor's services are certainly of great value, and if any one thing
be worth more than any thins: else It is certainly the services of a compe-
tent and successful physician and specialist, who never loses sight of a
single case until a perfect and permanent cure Is effected. Those who
are afflicted should not waste time, money and health dosing with cheap
treatments, cheap medicines and nostrums.
Altogether, Dr. Sweany as a man is truly upright, conscientious" and
charitable. As a physician he Is thoroughly competent, earnest and suc-
cessful, and any and all persons who may be suffering from any human
ailments whatever will do themselves a great Injustlce'iflthey do not call
upon him, even If their troubles have resisted all other efforts to cure. His
