A STORMY TRIP
Pat Morrissey the
Only Winning One.
RAN OVER A MUDDY COURSE
HEADWATER EASILY BEATEN
BY MAUD FERGUSON.
Galene Left the Maiden — New
Moon Ran Away From Marplot.
Bullman Riding Out
Distant peals of thunder, weather cool
enough to make an Eskimo dog hunt
an old-fashioned fireplace and a hail storm
were the introductory features to the
racing at Oakland yesterua'-. The course
was already muddy, and the heavy down
pour of sleet and rain made It of the
eplaahy sort. Form fell with the mercury
In the thermometer, and live of the six
favorites failed to navigate through the
slop in safety. However, Cavallo, New
Moon and llorton were not overlooked by
the crowd, and the books prorited but lit
tle by their victories.
The first num decided, a six-furlong
sprint, saw Amasa and Aluminum close
equal favorites in the betting. Many tig
ured the pair would race their heads off
the first part, and backed the third choice,
Cavallo. Aluminum broke first; but was
quickly headed by Amasa The latter led
. until' within a few yards of the wire, when
Hahn on Cavallo got up, winning by a
Thorpe on Galene outbroke his com
pany in the two-year-old scramble, win
ning all the way. Big Horn, a 25 to 1 shot,
took the place from the favorite. The Buf
foon. Tom Sharkey, an outsider, was well
backed, but found the pace too fast for
Pat Morrissey, with Devin at the helm,
gathered in the mile and a sixteenth run
under reefed sails. Of the three he was
asked to subdue Castake looked the most
likely, but Johnny Reiff waited too long
with that gelding. Pat plowed through
the mud, winning in a romp. Keu Glenn
finished a distant third.
It looked as if Headwater ought to win
the six-furlong spin that followed; but
ih.f» superstitiously inclined nau a '•hunch"
that the gelding would meet wuh defeat.
He bavketi up from 1 to 2 to ~ to 10, and
was downed in a canter by Maud j. ergu
son; nsf.iinst which 10 and 12 to I was laid.
The winner was ridden by Jenkins. Jennie
Reid took show honors.
Rullman had the mount on 1 Marplot,
which opened favorite for the mile selling
run, but his ill luck stayed with him.
New Moon broke rtrst when tne barrier
was' released, and fairly reveling in tht

THE SAN FKANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1899.
"SOAPY SMITH" WILL
BE THE LADIES' PET
A FREAK FOR THE DOG SHOW.
SOAPY SMITH, a dog owned by A. Carrillo of this city, will without doubt
be the greatest curiosity of any dog that will be exhibited in the com
ing dog show. Soapy is a recent arrival from the Klondike region; in
fact, he only arrived from the frozen north two weeks ago, and was sent
down by express to Carrillo by a friend as a present. The owner says that
he dors i:i. t want any more canine presents, as he had to pay $125 express on
the animal. The most curious thing about the dog is that he is half bear and
half dog. His father was a big brown bear and his mother a genuine Klon
dike dog. Soapy has inherited his father's nn<> fur coat, the nair on his back
being several inches long. He also walks with the clumsy gait of a young
cub. "nut he is quite docile and tame. How he will stand the warm weather
1. but the hot spell of last week was very hard on the
animal. If the temperature should be warm for Soapy out at the show his
owner claims he will treat him to cold storage treatment by placing a big
cake of Ice in his kennel. Several Klondike miners who have seen the dog
claim that the animal is a splendid specimen of his species and that this breed
of animals, though only recently attempted in the north, has proved a great
success and that ior hard work drawing sleighs they have more endurance
and patience than any other breed.

NOT THE KLONDIKE.
A Wealthy Oakland Mining Oper
ator Given Up as Lost Returns
to His Friends and Busi
After beinp mourned as dead for nearly
it John McKelvey, the wealthy Oak
land mining man, has come back among
his friends and business associates on
this and the other side of the bay, and is
l" Ing kept busy explaining his mysteri
ous disappearance of eleven months ago.
Through all these months McKelvey has
been remembered as one of those who
went down on the ill-fated Mary Carret,
the Klondike boat that turned turtle and
sunk With nearly an on board last May
when on her way to St. Michael. His sud
den reappearance has brought joy to a
host of friends he has made since his res-
Idence in California in this city and Oak
McKelvey came to this country from
Mexico some live or six years a^o, and
since that time has been heavily inter
ested in mining properties on both the
northern and southern sections of the
mother lode, and a number of them he
has had under successful operation, lie
had the inborn shrewdness of the canny
Scott, and his success in his mining ven
tures made him many influential busi
n< ss associates.
When the Klondike fever was at its
height he bought interests in four of the
best claims in that district and started a
couple of experienced miners on their way
there to manage his new properties. They
took passage on the schooner Mary
He made, his plans known to few of his
friends, but those who were informed
understood that he was to take passage
on the same vessel. At the time she
Bailed he also disappeared, and when the
Dews earn.' back from the Alaskan coast
that, with others of her class, the Mary
Garrett had sunk with nearly all on
board McKelvey was given up as one
among the lost. Then came the list of
drowned, and the name "John McKelvey"
appeared among them, and it was an
nounced that the only ones saved were
a minister and his wife. The minister has
since been confined in a madhouse as. a
result of his awful experience.
McKelvey's name 'appearing among the
list of lost settled his fate in the minds
of his friends, and they were about ready
to set about arranging his estate when
he came back to arrange It himself. He
got back on Wednesday last, and his
surprise was great at learning his obit
uary had been already written.
He had simply started off on one of his
periodical prospecting trips, and it had
taken him into the Kootenal district of
British Columbia. He had not thought It
worth while to announce his trip, and
following his usual custom he had started
off after saying nothing.
It has developed since that there was a
John McKelvey on the passenger list of
the lost Mary Garrett and that he lost
his life with others who went down with
her, but he was not the McKelvey who
was mourned for so long a time, and all
the search possible has failed to find any
one to mourn for him. No trace has betn
found of his relatives or acquaintances,
and so far as the history of that ill
advised rush is concerned he will be
known as simply one of the many who
gave up their lives to it.
The right John McKelvey has returned
to life, and back from the Kootenai he
has brought the title deeds to some of
the best promising properties of that dis
trict, and just now he is busy receiving
warm congratulations, by telephone and
otherwi.se, from his friends.

Moving the Fence.
The sign fence, a nuisance which sur
rounds the ruins of the Baldwin Hotel,
and which has for months past been an
obstruction to pedestrians, is to be re
moved. By a special permit from the
Board of Supervisors "Lucky" Baldwin
was allowed to erect the fence, and when
he did so extended it so far out from the
walls on the . Market and Ellis street
sides as to take up more than half of the
pavement. In the case of the Market
street side this has been a great annoy
ance, as it left a very narrow passage
At the meeting of the Street Commlt
tee on Monday night positive orders were
given to have the fence moved back to
the line of the building. Yesterday Bald
win, in compliance with the order, set a
gang of men to work to move the fence
back. The work will be accomplished
this week, much to the convenience of
all pedestrians and the joy of the shop
keepers in the neighborhood, to whom it
has been a great inconvenience.
BATTLE OF BUNKER HILL.
Its Anniversary Will Be Fittingly
Cele orated in This City.
The anniversary of the Battle of Bunker
Hill will be celebrated In an elaborate
fashion by patriotic societies of this city
on June 17. For the past forty years the
day has been fittingly recalled in San
Francisco by speech and song, but this ]
year it is proposed to make the details
of the celebration more extensive and to
excel all past commemorations of Its
character. The Sons of the American
Revolution jvill unite with the Califor- |
nia Pioneers and the Bunker Hill Asso- \
ciation, and they will invite the partici- i
pation of public men in exercises which
will be arranged to-night.
At Sunset Park, in the Santa Cruz
Mountains, an appropriate programme
will be listened to, and two trains— one
at 7:45 a. m. and the other at 8:50— will
leave the foot of Market street for the
grounds. Two bands will accompany the
This evening a meeting of the three so
cieties will be held at the Occidental Ho

Judge Morrow Renders an Important
Decision as to the Duty of Govern
ment to Prove Certain Facts.
United States Circuit Judge Morrow de
cided Monday that when the Govern
ment brings suit to cancel a land grant
under the plea that the land is more val
uable for its mineral deposits than for Its
agricultural products, the Government
must prove the plea.
The case was that of the T T nited States
against the Central Pacific Railroad Com
pany, George W. Towle, Allen Towle, Ed
win Towle and others to cancel a grant
by the United States to the Railroad Com
pany of a section of timber land in Ne
vada County. It appeared from the evi
dence that some mining had been done on
the land before thr- Government granted it
to the railroad company, but that the !
mining had been discontinued, and after
the Towles bought the section from the
railroad they cut a large quantity of val
uable timber off the tract.
The Government failed to prove that th*e
land was more valuable for its mineral
deposits than for its timber, etc., hence
it lost the case.
Two Girl Pickpockets.
Two young grirls. who from their ap
pearance have resided on the ragged side
of life for some time, in name Bessie
Bond and Gertrude Heigrhtler, were con
victed yesterday by a jury in Judge
Cook's court of the crime of grand lar
ceny for having relieved Henry Hock of
a purse containing $G5. After the judg
ment of the jury had been rendered
Judpe Cook asked the young women
their aces. nry.l both confessed that they
were pp.st IS years. This means that they
must £o to State Prison, notwithstanding
that they were recommended to the mercy
of the court by the jury. In the same
court John Wilson was convicted of bur
glary in the second degree. He stole an
overcoat from a supst in the Wenban
Hotel, on Sutter street.
Rupture Was Cured
Five Years Ago the Experiment
No Doubt But What the Cure Is
In the early part of ISM, J. D. Thompson of
Castorland, N. V., was attracted by the news-
paper announcement that Dr. \V. S. Rice of 41S
T. Main street, Adams, N. V., had perfected
MR. J. D. THOMPSON.
a new and marvelous cure for rupture. Mr.
Thompson had a rupture that the various
kinds of trusses on the market wouldn't hold.
■o he communicated with Dr. Rice and began
treatment Immediately. He was cured so com-
pletely as to upset all former theories regard-
ing? the treatment of rupture and for the past
five years has been as sound as a dollar. This
fact is worthy of publication, since there are
thousands of sufferfrs who honestly believe
they cannot be cured. Write to Dr. Rice and
he will send you free a book that describes
this grand treatment.
It is a home cure at small cost, painless,
harmless, without operation or loss of an hour
from work. It cures man, woman or child,
and no matter how bad the rupture may be
the cure is quick, complete and permanent.
If you are ruptured do not neglect- this notice
Of the Rice method of cure. It Is the recording
nf farts like the above that makes our news-
papers of such value to us. AVrite at once for
Dr. Rice's book, and if you know of any one
else who is ruptured it will be an act of kind-
ness to see that they also learn about the mar-
velOUfl Dr. Rice system. Write to-day.

This panorama is a correct representation of
the great fight. The landscape, bay and ships
have been painted by artists purposely sent to
Manila; and returning naval officer* and others
have assisted by furnishing correct data, thas
enabling the management to reproduce the
battle as it was fought by Admiral Dewey,
historically and absolutely correct in every de-
tail. Same general style as Waterloo and
Gettysburg, but surpassing them in artistic
merit and interest, showing not only the bat-
tle but the beautiful blue Bay of Manila
with its villages and cities along the shores.
