Their Fruit as From This
A FEW DISASTROUS BESTJLTS
Their Pians Discovered by an Eastern
Agent of the San Francisco
News has just been received by the San
Francisco Fruit Exchange of what would,
if authentic, be a gigantic fraud perpe
trated on the fruit packers and growers of
The news is in the shape of a communi
cation sent to one ot the members of the
exefiange by an agent located in one of
the Middle Western States. The honesty
and integrity of the writer are vouched for
by the members of the San Francisco
Fruit Exchange. The names of the par
ties to this scneme are known to the offi
cers of the Fruit Exchange, but for certain
obvious reasons will not be given publicity
at this time.
In order to comprehend the wrong in
tended to be done California peaches by
the Eastern packers concerned in the af
fair it is necessary only to print the com
munication, which follows:
I learned to-day confidentially that the Bal
timore packers intend packing a large quan
tity of peaches this season under California
labels, both standards and seconds. One
broker has already taken orders for 4000
cases, subject to approval of samples and
prices, and the buyers have selected their la
bels.'- The cans are to be labeled in Baltimore
and shipped in plain cases, the packer furnish
ing a stencil and the cases to be branded after
arrival at destination.
From the indifference manifested by the job
bers in this State I am inclined to believe
that the Jobbers' Association here, at a meet
ing held, last month, agreed to refrain from
buying any canned fruit futures from Califor
nia. They all talk in the same vein, and say
they will buy the goods next spring or when
they need them, and that the California
packer must carry the goods.
Baltimore packers are also going to pack
sliced peaches and put them on the market so
as to afford both jobber and retailer a good
profit by selling to the consumer at 10 cents.
Secretary T. S. Taylor stated yesterday
that the- parties to the scheme had been
written to in regard to the matter and the
affair will be probed to the bottom. In
case they deny the report steps will be
taken at once to ascertain. its veracity. If
it is found to be true, the matter will be
given full publicity, and the Jaw will be
invoked to prevent the consummation of
"California Backers," said Secretary
Taylor, "generally bear, in mind the
amount of fruit disposed of the previous
year when engaged in packing. If the
Eastern, market should be flooded with
Eastern fruit, purporting to be grown in
California, the local packers would be un
able to get rid of much of their canned
fruit, and great financial damage would
"Then again, the Eastern packers would
have no freight across the continent to
pay, and consequently could Bell their
fruit more cheaply. This would prevent
competition. Besides, for the same reason,
they could export fruit more cheaply than
we. This would be a vast injury to Cali
fornia packers as well as growers.
"If we can prove that this alleged
nefarious scheme exists there will oe
trouble in store for the parties con

The preliminary examination of Private
James Kelly of Battery E, Fifth Artillery,
charged with the murder of Private Jo

Judge Conlan yesterday.
Four witnesses were examined and their
evidence was similar to that given at the

location of the murder. Private John P.
Jones testified to an altercation In which
Kelly and Quinn participated, and then
Kelly went Dehind the hose-reel house,

Privates John Wbalen and John O'Don

T. J. L. Smiley's Expert Opinion
of Its Theory and
He Thinks It Will Result in Fraui.
Election Officers Who Are
"The theory of precinct registration,"
saia T. J. L. Smiley, the Republican rep
resentative, "is all vety well, but the
practice is essentially different. There are
in this City upward of 900 election officers,
not more than one-fifth of them being
qualified electors. The precinct registra
tion this year will, I am sure, be produc
tive of extensive frauds.
"Why, only a small proportion of the
recently appointed inspectors, judges and
clerks of election haa a legal residence in
the City and County of San Francisco and
is entitled to vote. The greater the num
ber of precincts thp wider is the scope
given to fraud. Registrar Hinton is seem
ingly a fair-minded man, but he cannot
control the political consciences of his
numerous subordinates. They, neces
sarily will be influenced by personal and
partisan considerations. I think that all
registration should be conducted at the
City Hall. This, while it would not alto
gether prevent fraud, would greatly lessen
the chances for its perpetration.
"As I have said, many of the recently
appointed officers of election are not
voters, and besides many more of them
are not even residents of the precincts from
which they make their applications.
"There are several important constitu
tional amendments to be voted upon at
the coming election, such as woman's suf
frage, the exemption of taxation npon
mortgages, etc., and these should be given
a promin«nt place upon the ticket. Thus
far the necessary provisions for bringing
these topics before tbe attention of the
people and giving them their proper places
upon the ticket have not been made. The
registration this year is comparatively
heavy, but this is not necessarily any in
dication of fraud, which may be looked for
later in the precincts.
"It is surprising how many men are
anxious to earn the |40 allowed for service
on precinct boards of registration, and to
what length they will go in securing such
appointments. Political parasites and
men around town without any visible
means of support will file applications for
positions with the Registrar and swear
that they are electors of the City and
County of San Francisco and residents at
the Lick House or some ether fashionable
hotel, when in truth they are neither
one nor the other. I trust that by the ex
ercise of due vigilance we shall be
able to detect and prevent all election
frauds which may be attempted during
the coming campaign, and to secure to
the people a fair count and an honest ex
pression of the public sentiment."

LIGHT WINDS DELAYED
The Abandoned British Ship
Gowanbank Sighted by the
WAS DESERTED MOHTHS AGO
Captain Anderson of the Oceania
Vance Has Been Superseded by
Several overdue ships arrived in port
yesterday, and all reported light baffling
winds. The first to get in was"the British
ship Loch Linnhe, 160 days from Ham-
burg. Only one accidentjhappened during
the voyaee. On March 25 last William
Brown, an A. 8., fell from the mizzen top
and fractured his skull. He lived for an
hour, but never regained consciousness.
Captain Cummings spoke quite a fleet of
ships. On April 8, in latitude 39.40 south,
longitude 53 west, the Brituu ship
Lathom, from Swansea for Ban Francisco,
was spoken. The Lathom has since been
reported as having put into Valparaiso for
water. She had on board the crew of the
British ship Gowanbank, which was
abandoned off the Horn. On- April 22, in
latitude 55.50 south, longitude 6J.30 west,
anfabandoned four-masted iron ship,
partially dismasted, was passed. This was
probably tbe Gowanbank. which has now
been drifting about the Horn for months.
On the same date that the abandoned
ship was passed, the ships Fulwood and
Gulf Stream were sighteu oft Staten
Island. They were making good weather
of it and shonld reach purty in safet.
The schooner Martha W. Tuft reached
port soon after the Loch Linnbe. She
was forty-eight days making the run from
Tres Marias, Mexico. About a fortnight
| ago tae vessel began to run out of pro
i visions and everybody was placed on short
i allowance. Fortunately the bark Albert
from Honolulu came along, and Captain
Griffiths supplied the Tuft with eight
days' supplies. Captain Olsen of the
schooner reports that it was nothing but
a drifting match from Tres Marias to San
The barkentine City of Papeete made an
unusually lone passage from Tahiti. She
was forty-five days making the run, and as
she is supposed to leave again on tbe Ist

i again. Captain Berude reports light
winds throughout. On July 4 dis vessel
sailed over what appeared to be the keel
of a vessel. It was about 100 feet long and
was bolted with four and six inch spikes.
This was in latitude 22.20 north, longitude
153 west. This is probably the keel that
was reported by one of the coasters a
couple of weeks ago.

wholesale grocers, at 6.36 Market street,
for the benefit oi their creditors, will be
seltled soon in a way satisfactory both to
the firm and its creditors.
A committee of the Board of Trade re

should be made to Quade & Co. to settle
for 75 cents on the dollar. Tne result can

If Quade & Co. agree to the proposition
