There Was Nothing Yellow About
Either the Paper or Its
In these days when yellow fakers
flourish In the fields of Journalism and
contest with legitimate newspapers the
right to live there Is so much fraud
committed in the name of Journalistic
: enterprise that the public is often skep
tical and Incredulous of the honesty of
any newspaper that undertakes the ac
j complishment of an enterprise of more
I than ordinary, magnitude.
So many newspapers have at one
time or another announced the publi
cation of some enormous edition, and
ON SHARP DEALS
A Very Pointed 'Decision Ren
dered in a Los Angeles
It Places a Well - Known Real
Estate Agent In a Bad
The Supreme Court has laid down a lit
the law which Is likely to have a good
effect upon a certain kind of land job
then defaulted either in the issue of the
stated number of copies, or else in the
circulation of them, that all such edi
tions are now watched with suspicion.
Even when the edition Is issued hy a
paper of such high repute for honesty
that no one doubts the fulfillment of
every promise made in the prospectus,
there is always some faker or enemy
in journalism ready to suggest the
doubt. It has therefore become neces
sary for even the most worthy and
honorable newspapers to give proof to
the public of the absolute performance
of every promise made in the issuing
of editions of that kind.
The Call rejoices that but few per
sons or papers have ever <-xpressed a
doubt that th^- New Era Edition of 3",0.
000 copies was printed, published and
circulated exactly as promised. This
evidence of public confidence is grat
ifying. XeverthHeps we feel that
some positive testimony of the per
formance of trw- promise should be
given and therefore we publish the fol
We invite close scrutiny of the state
ments made: C. H. Crocker, general
manager of the H. P. Crocker Company,
certifies that his rnmpany made and
delivered to The Call 354,500 covers for
the New Era Edition. W. B. Hin
chllffe, foreman of the pressroom, cer
tifies that he printed 354.500 copies of
the edition and delivered them to the
mailing department. W. N. Donald
son, superintendent of the mailing de
partment, certifies that he distributed
through the United States postofflce,
Wells Fargo and Company's express,
and the carriers In this city before De

the charge of obtaining money by false
pretenses, for the woman took up the
notes and paid over the money.
To the Indictment Bryant demurred,
and wus sustained by the Superior Court,
contending that the fraudulent represen
tation charged In the indictment related
solely to the property, and did not come
under the statute, as the mortgage was
only a security for the payment of the
note and it was not charged that the
maker of the note was unable to pay the
same or that the note had not been paid.
The District Attorney appealed from tho

CONQUER FITZ ?
What Will Happen if These
Fistic Exponents Meet
Good Reason to Believe That Our
Jim Will Be Champion
The lovers of fistic art are now bus
ily engaged in discussing the prospective
meeting of the two heavy fellows, for
that event would appear to be an as
sured fact judging from late develop
ments in that controversy. Although
Fitz is somewhat dilatory about entang
ling himself in another conflict with a
man whom ho has once defeated. still
he no doubt will finally succumb to the
matures of C'orbett if for no other rea
son than that he will soon "need the
money." and he can make more by this
match than any other. It is more than
probable that their war of words. In
which they are now forcibly indulging, is
but a preliminary to the more important
battle that is to come. Who knows but
this agitation between them is carried on
for the purpose of creating interest in the
affair and to assure its financial success?
Both men have their devoted admirers,
but it seems to be the consensus of opin
ion that our Jim will be the victor in
the return engagement and thus redeem
hi- lost prestige.
Professor Walter "Watson, who Is com
petent to talk on the subject, is ni^st
emphatic lp his expression of opin
ion that Corbett will win the next time
and advnnces the theory that this should
be the outcome because experience is the
best teacher, and the defeated gladiator
has thoroughly learned his sa<l lesson. In
his ('arson light with Fitzsimmons t 'orbett
was trained entirely too Ane on account
of too much hard work on the last two
days of his training. He is Inclined to
be somewhat vain of his physical accom
plishments, and the day before the great
struggle he aired them for the edification
of some Eastern friends connected with
the New York Athletic < - luh, and thus
over-exertM himself to nn alarming ex
tent. Again hf» overdid his outdoor ex«»r
i is»» and tn that way left his strength
on the road Instead of taking it In the
ring with him. In his fight with Sharkey
he made the grave mistake of not train
ing at all. and with Fitzslmmons he com
mitted the opposite •■rr'>r of training too
much. It wr\s a fatal proceeding in the
second case and came very near being so
In the first The consequence was that

A YOUNG WOMAN'S RIGHTS
An Interesting Supreme Court De-
cision in the Dittrich-
Mrs. Mary E. Dlttrich was formerly the
wife of Frank Gobey. he of Welsh rare
bit and cocktail fame on Sutter street.
In 1880 the couple were divorced and the
custody of their minor child, Camille,
was vested in the maternal parent. In
1893 the divorced parties entered into a
contract, under which Gobey was to
have charge of the child's education and
bear all of the expenses of traveling,
clothing, etc., until she should have,
reached her eighteenth year. At the ex
piration of that time Gobey agreed to
restore Camille to her mother, free of
expense, and for any failure to do so
should be, under the contract, liable for
$1000 as liquidated damages.
The child became IS years of age in
September. 1532. Her father offered to
aliow her to return to her mother, but
the young lady had a mind of her own
and expressly refused to go. The mother
mad" a formal demand, but Gobey
failed to comply and afterward died.
The executor of the estate is Jess*
bey, and against him Mrs. Dittrich, the
mother, began an action to recover the
SlmiO as penalty for a breach of contract.
The executor won.
Justice Garoutte sustains the judg
ment of the lower court. He holds the
contract was that the father should af
ford the facilities for the daughter to re
turn to her mother at the time stated
and could not be construed as uncondi
tional, for to attempt to force the young
lady to return to her mother would be \o
infringe upon the former's rights, she
having attained her majority. There was
no reason to suppose that the contract
was alternative— to return the girl to her
mother at the time specified or pay $1000.

WHERE GO THE
HORSE WHEN DEAD
Used for Food to Stimulate the
Hen to Bring Forth the
Consideration of Scientific Phases of
a Question Which Appeals to
the Intellectual Stomach.
The chicken is not a particular sort of
bird as to its diet. It Will eat anything
of a size to find room in its elastic crop.
! This circumstance, however, gets a little
ahead of the story.
1 It is a recognized fact in science that
the same element enters into the composi
tion of many different organisms. For in
stance, that which is a portion of a cow
| one season might be recognized some oth
er season as a blade of grass, a flower, a
mushroom, a toad, or be traced to a posi
tion in some human body. On second
i thought, these commonplace reflections
! are ahead of the story, too.
To get down to stern realities, there
was a curiosity to know what became of
dead horses. In the natural course of
events more or less dead horses are cer
tain to accumulate, unless there be steps
taken to remove them. There was a time
when the deceased equine was incinerat
ed. He was reduced to ashes along with
the other evidences of civilization. Sud
denly he ceased to appear. Either tho
horse had quit dying, or a new use had
been found for him. • It was learned that
the dogs out at the coursing track had
been induced to regard him as edible, and
that properly cooked he answered the
purpose of soup, entree, roast and des
sert. But the owners of the dogs did not
indorse this view, and one market for
dead horse became stagnant. Yet the
horse that had laid down the burden of
life failed to appear at the .old haunts.
The experts of the dumps were puzzled.
Among those whose love for investiga
tion led them to look into this matter was
a veterinary surgeon. Others might be
deluded, but he knew that horses occa
sionally rested from their labors. He as
certained a few things: When a horse has
ceased to be useful to the extent of giv
ing up the ghost, it is Idle to suppose that
he vanishes into thin air. He couldn't do
it. No; the custom is to ship n!m to Pet
1 aluma or some other point at which the
chicken Is the staff of life, and utilize him
as feed. Before shipment he la cut to
convenient size. After shipment he is cut
\ to bits, and by the subtile scheme of na
i ture converted into eggs and broilers.
The question arises, and here there shall
I be no attempt to answer it. whether an
egg composed of the constituent parts of
what was dead horse is worthy the public
confidence. Perhaps the spavined, swee
nied. wind-broken horse, the horse that
lies down In harness and expires, may
appear again in the form of eggs and bo
wholesome. Possibly the secret processes
of nature may enable the tender chicken
to burst from Its shell untainted of th«
dead horse from which it sprang. Human
judgment is weak and the human stom
ach is subject to qualms. Yet when hu
| man Judgment declares that horse meat,
i the same havin»r become horse meat by
, malady, is not fit to form the nucleus n'f
generations of chickens yet unborn, tho
human stomach Indorses The verdict, and
: seems to have some excuse for being pos
'■ itive about it.
