The sports were ou* in force yester
day at the Ingleside coursing grounds,
and the manner In which they plunged
was proof positive that they were on
to the twists and turns of the fleet dogs
which started. The day was rather
raw, but as large a crowd as usual was
present. Gaily dressed women lent
color and animation to the scene, and
children mingled with the gathering.

themselves to be second Itiley Gran

connected with the park, was in evi

Louis Metzer, Teddy Osbourne and
Captain F. W. Warren helped to keep
the pool-sellers busy, and Jockey

rider of the coast, was seemingly anx

hare. "They are off in a bunch,"
would declare, and at the finish h<
would coolly walk up and cash Ins

Then \Y. Kay, of the popular owners,

declaring that he was not connected
with the opposition dog men, and that
no authority had been given them hy
him for his election as an officer in the
new combination, and then followed
with a few well-placed bets. A lady,
well known by many present, persisted
in asking questions, which placed the

her first question, and then when the

a rear entrance she inquired of her
lady companion, "What makes the

It was plainly a day for the favorites.
The hares were in splendid trim, and
many courses were more than exciting.
The first throw-down of the day was
when Semlnole, at 2 to 1, lost to the
neglected Sly Boy. Then Eclipse, who
was thought to be a "lead piper," failed
to follow "White Lily. But the faint

a long and well-fought course. Nelly

course proved that bettors were not al

nice slice of money, which had been
played at 2*& to 1 against him.
The feature of the day was the run

thing, and when the fleet hound start

He Recently Served a Short Term
in the San Quentin
Since the daring robbery in Jess' gro

last Thursday night, Detectives Ryan
and ODea have had under suspicion a
■ man whom they strongly suspect of be

and is known under several different

right man, the detectives yesterday
took him to tho grocery store fur the
purpose of having him identified. Aft

proprietor, failed to recognize him.
"I was so excited at the time." he
explained to Ryan and O'Dea. "that

The two men who were in the store
at the time were then sent for, but,

AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY."
Hon. Charles A. Bonaparte Speaks in a Sen-
sational Style Upon Trusts and the
Acts of Congressmen.
BOSTON, Jan. 16.— Hon. Charles J. Bon
aparte delivered a striking lecture at the
mont Theater this evening on "Civil
and Religious Liberty." attacking trusts
and boodle Congressmen. He said: "It
is a great wrong that the law should be
obscured as it sometimes is. Perhaps
some of our United States Senators would
not be on such familiar terms with trusts
and corporations if a few were hung up
to lamp posts. The progress of the law
is so slow It does not cause any satisfac
tion when its decrees are carried out.
When a man can be convicted, sentenced
and put out of the way in two weeks
after he is caught there will be few
lynrhings heard of.
Mr. Bonaparte alluded to certain secret
societies that had attempted to keep from
public office all men of his faith. He
said be looked with equanimity upon such
efforts. The A. I. A. would help Cath
olics in the opinion of Americans whose
good opinion was worth having. Some
politicians of his faith had lacked Judg
ment and sought to fight the puny ef
forts of the A. P. A. He was very sorry
for it, but those who sought to kindle the
dying fires of religious hatred met with
failure. Time would do the right thing.

Property Owners of the
Mission Flock to His
Twenty Picked Men to Urge the
Removal of the City and
Enthusiastic Meeting nt Maennerbund
Hall— Strong Speeches Ap
The crusade for the removal of the
City and County Hospital to some oth

terday afternoon the property owners
of the Mission assembled in mass meet

fourth street and Potrero avenue, and
used the parliamentary battle-ax vig
orously In a united endeavor to gain
redress of their grievance.
At that meeting two names shone as
stars of the first magnitude of
! Supervisor Rottansl and Senator I*. J.
Dwyer. They have both devoted a
good deal of their time and energy to
the proposed reform, and the assem
blage simply showered them with en
comiums from the drop of the chair
man's gavel to the passing round of the
hat. As a result of that meeting twen
ty representative citizens will call In a
sort of friendly way to interview the
Supervisors on the proposition to-day,
and later on will make a few business
visits. In addition It was decided to
I hold monthly meetings and keep ham

! somebody's heart softens or nerves
weary— it is the same thing to them.
The meeting was under the auspices
of the Potrero Avenue Improvement
Club. James B. Hughes called it to or

as chairman, and Eugene V. Sullivan
After asserting the purpose of the
gathering and the fact that vigorous
support at this time would direct at
tention to Supervisor Rottanzi's pro

and erect new buildings, Chairman

imously. Its general purport was as

the hospital was built twenty-five yours

that the rights of the taxpayers should
be respected in the matter of having a

Mysterious Death of
an Old Woman in
Jennie Webster, While
Chatting With the Sur
geons, Passes Away.
She Was Picked Up by the Po
lice at Eddy and Leaven
MAY HAVE TAKEN POISON.
Fragments of a Letter Discov
ered in Her Posses
The surgeons at tho Receiving Hos
pital are puzzled over the death of a
well-dressed woman which occurred in
the female ward last night.
Shortly after 5 o'clock, the woman,
who was about 45 years of. age, was
found lying on the sidewalk at the
corner of Eddy and Leavenworth
streets. The police were notified, and
she was removed to the hospital in the
patrol-wagon. After recovering con
sciousness, the woman said her name
was Jennie Webster. She denied that
she had taken poison, and claimed that
she was subject to fits. She was placed
in the female ward, and at 8 o'clock
lust night she had sufficiently recovered
to ask Dr. Fitzgibbon, who was In
charge, to allow her to go home.
On account of her advanced age, the
surgeon advised her to remain in the
hospital until morning. While chatting
pleasantly with the matron and an at
tache, the unfortunate woman threw
up her hands and suddenly expired.
Her body was afterward sent to the
In a pocket-book which was found
in the bosom of her dress was JL' 20 in
silver and a card bearing the name,
"Miss Clara Fortuna, 319 Sutter street.
There was also found in the pocket
book a portion of a letter bearing the
signature "Miss Ifollle Shaw, Salinas."
Sh>- had evidently destroyed the letter,
tut had carefully preserved the name
Of the sender. The woman was dressed
In a dark brown skirt and a light col
ored waist. She wore a tastefully
trimmed hat and a brown jacket. In
one of her stockings was found a
white handkerchief, in the corner of
which was tied up two $10 gold pieces
an<l two f"> gold pieces.
Officer Gaynor, who took the unfortu
nate woman to the Receiving Hospital,
says that he found her lying on the
sidewalk, apparently unconscious. Sev
eral citizens who were standing by said
that they noticed her walking along
Eddy street. As she reached Leaven
wortfa she suddenly threw up her hands
and fell. Thinking she had fainted
they tried to revive her, but without
avail. It was then that the police were
The most mysterious feature of the
case is that the woman refused to give
'"They shall not know of my troubles,"
she remarked to the surgeon, "I would
rather die first."
No amount of questioning could in
duce her to tell where she lived or who
her relatives were. She first gave her
name as Mary Webster, but finally ad
mitted that her true name was Jennie.
Dr. Fitzgibbon is inclined to believe
that the woman's death was caused by
strychnine poisoning. He bases his be
lief on the suddenness of her taking off,
which he thinks could not have been
caused by a fit, as Fhe was conscious
the minute before she died.
At ?.!!> Putter street, the address
found on the card in the •woman's pos

of any woman of the name of Clara
