married to the man who was murdered
last night thirteen years ago. She died
on the IGth inst. On me day before her
death Pratt deposited to his own credit
in the Hlbernia Bank $2147 08. On August

He was preparing to go East shortly.
He had sold the furniture in the house
and had sent his personal belongings to
the house of a Mrs. Lee, who ha/T been a
friend of the family for years. Decedent
was a well-known character about the
city. He was a collector of bad debts and
also peddled lottery tickets.
The Coroner's deputies are much In

notify them of the deed until an hour
after the police officer sent to investi

would not have found it out then had

officials at the City Hall for information.
He was then told that the man was dead
and had been dead for about two hours.
The police offered no excuse for failing to
give the customary notice.

Remarkably Fine Drill
WITNESSED BY THOUSANDS
A REGIMENT OF WHICH THE
STATE MAY BE PROUD.
The Men Drilled With the Precision
of Old-Time Regulars, and
Were Reviewed by Gen
The drill of the Eighth California Regi
ment on the parade ground, at Sixteenth
and Folsom streets, yesterday afternoon
was witnessed by a crowd of over 4000
people, among whom were many promi
nent citizens. Occupying seats on the re
viewing stand were Brigadier General
Miller and staff, Judge Advocate Bor
rough. Lieutenant Colonel Shriver and
Major Goodall, both of the Twenty-third
Infantry; Colonel Berry, Major Welch and
Lieutenants Hammond and Fexnald, all
of the Seventh California; Adjutant Gen
eral Barrett; Colonel R. L. Peeler, assist
ant adjutant general; Colonel J. F. Bur
gin, inspector of rifle practice; Lieutenant
Colonels Young, Pippy, Andrews, Vail,
Beck, Howell and Dnolittle, aides-de
camp, and Colonel Chadbourne, all of
Governor Budd's staff; and Rev. C. E.
Preceding the drill a concert was given
by the bands of the Eighth California,
Twentieth Kansas and First Tennessee
regiments. The opening drill was the
School of the Battalion, in close order, by
Companies A, D, E and M, composing the
P'irst Battalion, in command of Lieutenant
Tnlum-l Carrington, with Lieutenant Bean
as adjutant, which was executed with
great precision. The Second Battalion,
consisting of Companies B, C, G and I, in
command of Major Whitton, with Lieu
teriant Munn as adjutant, gave a physical
exercise with arms, which elicited merited
and enthusiastic applause. This drill was
a most interesting feature of the pro
gramme. The street riot drill, by the
Third Battalion, composed of Companies
E, H, X and L, commanded by Major
Forbes, with Lieutenant Denson as adju
tant, was admirably performed, especially
the forming of the hollow square. The
extended order drill, by Company G, under
Captain Stmp.son and Lieutenants Weth
ern and Munn, was the most novel and
exciting event of the afternoon. The firing
of blank cartridges was unexpected by the
crowd, which was considerably startled at
the first discharge. Then came guard
mounting. Lieutenant Smith being adju
tant; Captain Baldwin, new officer of the
day; Captain Rlley. old officer of the day;
Lieutenant Adel, officer of the guard; and
Lieutenant Denson, supernumerary. Next
in order wai the regimental parade in line
of masses. Colonel Henshaw commanding,
and Lieutenant 1). A. Smith acting as ad
iutant. Tlii> programme closed with the
review of the regiment by General Miller.
It was the general verdict that the
Eighth California is a credit to the State.
It is composed of a magnificent lot of
men, both a.s to physique and character,

Schilling s Best coffee does not;
but it is delicious coffee.
and considering that they have been in
service only about sixty days they have
attained a wonderful degree of perfection
in tactics and the manual of arms.
At the close of the drill a collation was
served to the regiment by the Mothers'
Club of the Army and Navy Christian
Commission, the president of the club,
Mrs. C. S. Wright, superintending the
EVENTS AT THE PRESIDIO.
The Unpleasantness Between
Colonels Funston and Little
Has Been Exaggerated.
Inl the controversy between Colone
Funston and Lieutenant Colonel Little of
the Twentieth Kansas Regiment the
facts have been greatly exaggerated.
Lieutenant Colonel Little stated yester
day that he had expressed his opinion as
to the fitness of certain officers in the
regiment who were in the line of promo
tion, and that he did no more than he
believed that he had a right to do, but
that Colonel Funston had disapproved of
what he had done, and that was the end
of the matter. Lieutenant Colonel Little
was not ordered to his quarters by Col
onel Funston, nor was he put under ar

Private Fred Shaufele, Company A,
Twentieth Kansas, is in the regimental
hospital suffering from what Is appar
ently an attack of temporary Insanity.
Friday afternoon some of the soldiers of
his company noticed that he was acting
queerly. He was seen to go Into his tent
and load his rifle and then attempt to fire
It into his body by pressing the trigger
with his toe. The gun was taken from
him and he was carried struggling to the
hospital, where he tried to beat out his
brains with his fists. Shaufele was better
yesterday, although he Is still under a
guard. He declares that ftte is subject to
brain attacks, and when these are upon
him he is not aware of what he is doing.
He will no doubt be brought before an
examining board and discharged from the
service for physical disability. •
Departure of the Scandia.
The transport Seandia started at 11:30
o'clock yesterday morning on her voy

C. J. Johnson Arrested for Assault-
ing a Japanese Boy.
C. W. Johnson, a wholesale butcher,
surrendered himself at the Southern Po
lice Station last night in answer to a
John Doe warrant, charging him with
battery on S. Sumli, a Japanese boy, em
ployed as a waiter in a Market street
Johnson visited the saloon last Wednes
day night in company with a party of
friends, two of whom were women. They
had some trouble with the waiter and
left the saloon. About half an hour
later they returned and made the claim
that Johnson had only received 40 cents
change for a $10 gold piece which he had
fiven in payment for a 60-cent round of
rinks. The boy denied the charge, saying
that he had been given two 60-cent pieces.
A wrangle ensued, in which the boy was
slapped and cuffed until the bartender In
terfered and the party withdrew to a
back room and rang for a waiter. The
boy answered the call and when he en

Killed by Savage Storks.
Complaint was made to the officers of
the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals that extreme cruelty had been
practiced In Golden Gate Park by the
manager of the Japanese tea gardens. It
seems that the old house cat had become
the mother of a healthy lot of kittnes,
which, upon becoming half-grown, proved
to be a nuisance to the manager. Dur

wanted to have a sip of tea after a walk

kittens Into the enclosure where the big
storks are kept. The savage birds with
their long, sharp bills, at once attacked
the helpless kittens, and after repeated
Jabbing killed them and then proceeded
to devour their victims. The sight so
shocked tho ladles that they fled without
finishing their tea and complained to the
officers of the society. To the latter the
wife of the manager made no denial that
her husband had thrown the little ani
mals to the storks, but she said that they
had been stunned before being thrown
into the inclosure. As the ladles who wit
nessed the cruelty could not be Induced

Patrolmen Under Him
HE WILL RIVAL CHIEF LEES
MAJORITY OF THE MEN ARE
AFRAID TO OBJECT.
They Are Ail Expected to Pay Fifty
Cents Toward a Voluntary Con
tribution Fund Next
Police Captain Wlttman, ho of the
clammy hand and cold feet, and the ser
geants under him will on the next dress
parade cut a wide swathe and rival the
venerable Chief Lees and his graudy uni
form. Wlttman Is going to have a sword
of finest finish; the sergeants will also
have sword 6. but not of so fine make. It
Is needless to say that the swords will
not be paid for by Wittman or the ser
geants. They will come in the shape of
a "voluntary contribution" from the men
under them. "Voluntary contribution"
In this instance is a term used in police
circles instead of "arbitrary assessment."
Each and every patrolman will on the
llrst of next month step up to the "Cap
tain's office" and "contribute" 60 cents
out of his hard earned wages toward
the sword fund. None of the men will
refuse to "contribute." A failure to do
so would mean a call to "walk the car
pet" in the Police Commisslo.ners* office
on the slightest provocation. A police
captain and a police sergeant are to be
feared by the unfortunate patrolman who
does not "contribute" when he la asked
to do so.
Just who originated the sword presenta
tion idea is not known, but there is a
lurking suspicion in the minda of the pa
trolmen that it emanated from the fer
tile mind of Captain Wittman. Lieuten
ant Birdsall and Sergeant Nash are tht
men who were delegated to levy the "vol
When the officers under Birdsall report
ed for duty Thursday evening he in
formed them that a "contribution" of 50
cents from each of them when they drew
their next salary would be applied to a
fund to purchase swords for Captain
Wlttman and the sergeants.
"Of course you are not compelled to pay
anything into the fund unless you desire
to 'do so," said Birdsall in a suave tone.
"Understand, it Is not compulsory," he
continued, "and If any officer does not feel
like contributing- let him say so now. You
must understand that the swords will be
the property of the department, and when
any of you are raised to the rank of ser
geant, a sword will be awaiting you. All
In favor of the contribution will say aye,"
A death-like stillness fell over the as
sembly hall. Then there were a few chir
rups of yes.
Birdsall looked pained and surprised.
He was unable to realize for a moment
that any patrolman would object to pay-
Ing the "voluntary contribution."
"All opposed," said he, when he had In
a measure regained his composure.
There w«s a chorus of noes that
went rumbling through the corridors of
the new City Hall.
Patrolman Jack Ralnsberry, who for the
last ton years has been living in hopes of
becoming a sergeant, came to the rescue.
"I demand a division," said he.
"The proposition has been lost," »ald
"But I Insist on a division," replied
"A division has been called for by Offi
cer Ralnsberry," said Birdsall, "and un
der parliamentary rules It must be
granted. All opposed to contributing will
please raise their hands."
i Only three of the men had the auda
city to raise their hands In objection.
They will in futune have to walk a very
straight line or their stars will be lost to
The men were then sent out on their
beats and the "voluntary contribution"
fund will be started next Thursday.
"If I was a sergeant," grumbled one of
the men as he left the assembly room. "I
would pay for my own sword. Luckily
for him, he was not discovered. If he
was known he would now be patrolling
one of the fog enveloped districts out
near the ocean beach.
Sergeant Nash had his turn as a promo
ter of the "voluntary contribution fund
at the North End station. The proposi
tion went through there like a slate tick
et at a Democratic primary. Only one
officer objected, and It is probable that
within the next few weeks he will find
himself walking a beat in the Potrero.
The others were afraid to raise their
voices in protest against the assessment.
"At one time," said one of the oldest of
cera on the force last night, "a patrolman
received his entire salary at the end of
the month. Those days are gone, how
ever." he added, with a sigh. "If it isn't
a case of buying a new helmet, it is a case
of getting a new revolver. If the helmet
and revolvers are all rignt, the great
