SOUTHERN TEAM IS NEARLY
■ ■ ■■ :: -
In the Golf Contest, Which Is Still
Unfinished, Odds Favor the
v South to Win the
Special Dlf^atcli to The Call.
DEL MONTE, Aug. 24.— For the second
time during the series of sports at this
place Northern California has come off
victorious, and in both cases it Is to Bur
lingamo that the laurels go. Miss Mary
Fcott of Burlingame captured the prize In
the ladies' golf tournament, and now the
Burlingame polo team has defeated the
Southern California team, with a score
that came very near having a goose egg
to the south'a credit.
The match began at 3:30 p. m., with R.
M and Jo Tobin, Charlie Baldwin and C
M. Dunphy In the held for Burlingame.
and C. B. Maud and R. L. Bettner of
Riverside and W. Stillwell and C. Ealand
of Santa Barbara representing the Bouih.
Burlingame Ht-ored the rst goaL Bald
win and I'unphy played exceptionally
Burlingan scored eight goals before the
Bouth made itself felt to any great extent,
but then the southern men rallied and
made several splendid plays, scoring a
goal. The last two points were hotly con
tested and the game, that at first had
been rather slow, eloped much excite
ment unions, the crowd of spectators. 1 he
t-core was it Co 1 in Burlingame's favor.
The men's golf contest for the Del Monte
cup that ... d yesterday, is still uniin-
Ished; but the odds are two to one in favor
r>f victory going to the southern players.
The second round in the final competition
resulted in throwing out all but three
southern men, Tufts. Cosby and Maud,
und one northern man, Fitzgerald. Tufts
uvA Cosby played off this i noon, Tufts
winning in good style. To-morrow morn

Special Dispatch to The Call.
ASTORIA, Or., Aug. 24.— The Pacific
Coast Association of Amateur Oarsmen
was organized at regatta headquarters
last night. The following gentlemen were
W. G. Frye of the University of Cali
fornia, 11. A. Witkopf of the Ariel Rowing
Club. S. J. Pembroke of Alameda Rowing
Club, Dr. C. C Dennis and J. Foley of
South End Boat Club, G. C. .Fulton of
Astoria Rowing Club. George Jam) of
Olympic Boat Club was represented by
Mr Pembroke. Mr. Fulton was chosen
temporary chairman and Harrison Allen
temporary secretary. The constitution
and by-laws which had been prepared
were then taken up. Each section was
carefully gone over and discussed at
length. The by-laws place oarsmen In
two classes, junior and senior, the inter
mediate class being struck out. A junior
oarsmen is one who has never won a
junior race, while a senior is one who (
has won a junior or senior race. It is j
specified that medals shall not exceed ;
$'<& in value, chough donation cups may be
worth any amount. hen the value of
a first prize for any event shall be less
than $35 there shall be no second prize.
The Idea of this rule is to prevent the
cheapening of medals.
There was much discussion as to defini
tion of boats which shall be used. Some
of the delegates were In favor of adopt
ing the Improved boats, which are of
greater speed, but as I here is only one of
these boats on San Francisco Bay it wu.s
decided to let the matter rest for another
year. It Is expected a majority of clubs
will buy fast boats a year hence, If so
this rule may be changed. The definition i
of barges and skiffs follows:
A barge shall be a clinker-built boat
rowing on the gunwale, meaning that the'
rowlocks shall not be outrigged, and a
skiff shall be a clinker-built boat, not ex
ceeding 21 feet 6 inches in length and 22
inches in width.
The constitution was adopted, and copies
will be sent to all Pacific Coast clubs.
The election of ofttcers resulted as fol

DE HAVEN DECIDES
THAT NORTH ERRED
SHOULD HAVE ALLOWED MER
CHANT OTA TO LAUD.
But the Secretary of the Treasury
Alone Has the Right to Review
the Action of the Immigra
United States District Judge de Haven
yesterday rendered his opinion in the
matter of the habeas corpus petition of
S. Ota, a Japanese merchant of this city,
who was prevented from landing at this
port by 11. H. North. United States Immi
gration Commissioner. General W. 11. L..
Barnes, representing the petitioner, was
present in court. The following Is the full
text of the decision:
This is a proceeding arising upon a writ of
habeas corpus Issued en behalf of one H. Ota,
and the ease was submitted to the court for its
decision upon the petition for the -vr;t. the re
turn thereto and certain admissions made by
counsel during the argument, from which 1
tin. i the following farts: - _«_.
That the said b. Ota Is a native and subject
of the empire of Japan, and for more than
eight years has been a resident of the State of
California and is now a merchant and a mem
ber of the firm of Ota *• Sanuda, San Fran
cisco; that said firm deals in Japanese fancy
goods teas and coffee, and Imports, manufac
tures'and sells all kinds of bamboo furniture;
that In March of the present year the said 8.
Ola went to Japan for the purpose of buying
goods for his firm, and after having made pur
chases to the amount in value of more than
five thousand dollars he returned to Ban Fran
cisco on the steamship Hongkong Maru, arriv
ing at that port on or about August 5, 1899, and
thereafter on the 10th day of August, 1899, after
a. special inquiry by the Immigration officials
at the port of San Francisco he was found to
be Buffering from a loathsome and contagious
disease and was ordered by 11. H. North, the
Commissioner of Immigration at that port, to
be returned to Japan, and is now in the cus
tody of the steamship company operating the
Hongkong Maru for the purpose of being so
returned to Japan. .■.,"•■ , ... »
Upon these facts I think it v<>ry clear that
the petitioner is not an alien Immigrant, and
that the Commissioner of Immigration erred in
ordering him to be returned to Japan (in re
Panzara. 51 Fed. 175); but under the act of
August 1. 1894, 28 Stats. 390, the only mode of
correcting this error Is by an appeal to the Sec
retary of the Treasury. That act provides :
In every case where an alien Is excluded from
admission Into the United States under any law
or treaty now existing or hereafter made, the
decision 'of the appropriate immigration or cus
toms officer if adverse to the admission of such
alien shall' be final unless reversed on appeal
to the Secretary of the Treasury.
This statute was before the Supreme Court
in the case of J>m Moon Sing vs. United
States ir,B U. S. 638. and was there construed
as taking away from the courts the authority
to review or set aside the decision of the execu
tive officers named, when such decision is ad
verse to an alien claiming. the right to enter
r.r re-enter the United States. See also In re
Mopes, S3 Fed. MS. ■::•': : :
The writ will be discharged.
The case has been appealed to the Sec
retary of the Treasury and will be de
cided in a few days. There is no doubt
that Ota will be allowed to land.

MRS. SUCHINSKI'S DEMAND.
Insane Woman Asks That She Be
Sworn on a Brass Crucifix.
The release of Frances Suchinski from j
the I'kiah Asylum for the Insane on the
ground that she had recovered her mental
balance was a little premature. Up to a I
few months ago the unfortunate woman
lived at 4213 Eighteenth street. She sold j
the property and Leon Czarnecki went to
live In the house, Mrs. Suchinski began [
to annoy the people living in her old home j
and finally she was arrested and sent to •
the asylum mentioned, as she was clearly
insane. A few weeks ago some friends
of the unfortunate woman secured a writ !
of habeas corpus for her release, and on i
the showing made by them the court ■
granted the writ Last Friday, however,
the insane woman invaded her old home ;
and, armed with a saw, made a vicious
attack on Mrs. I^-onore Czarnecki. A
policeman was summoned and the scream-
Ing woman was taken to prison. Yester
day morning her case again came up be
fore Judge Cook. When she was brought
Into court she loudly demanded that she
be sworn on a brass crucifix she carried j
and followed her demand with an inco
herent babble, It was readily seen that
she was not quite right mentally and

At Least One Will Be Composed of
Negro Soldiers Commanded by
Regular Army Officers.
NEW YORK, Aug. 24.— A Sun special
from Washington says: Orders for the
enlistment of more volunteer regiments
will be issued soon by the War Depart
ment. The quota of 35.000 enlisted men
for the volunteer army authorized by Con
gress has been nearly exhausted, and only
four regiments can be obtained from the
remainder, nearly f.OOO men. At least one
of the new volunteer regiments will be
composed of negroes. Black soldiers have
given such good service that there is now
! no fear that they will prove unsatisfac-
I tory if placed under officers of the regular
Whether the military authorities will
1 organize more than two new regiments
of volunteers cannot bo ascertained, but
it was said at the department to-day that
the Question of whether it is advisable
to enlist more than one negro regiment
was under consideration.
Two battalions each of the Twrnty
fouith and Twenty-fifth Infantry Regi
ments, both composed of negroes, are
now In the Philippines, and during, their
short service have done excellent work.
Tin- ability of the negro to withstand the
hurd.ships in a tropical climate is one of
the principal reasons why the department
has determined to organize at least one
regiment composed of men of that race.
The colonel and other field officers or
this regiment will be taken from the reg
ular army, but no information Is obtain
able as to whether any of the other offi
cers will be i.egroes. Twenty-threu regi
ments of volunteers have been organized
or are now in progress of organization.
Three of these, including one regime.nt of
: cavalry, are being tormed in the Philip
pines from discharged men of the regular
and volunteer services.
The army reorganization which pro
' vided for the enlistment of tk.,000 regulars
! and 35,000 volunteers, apparently pre
i scribes that three of the volunteer regi
ments shall be composed of expert marks
'■■ mon and horsemen, and shall be orga
' nlzed as cavalry, either mounted or dis
i mounted. This provision was inserted on
account of the excellent service rendered
by Roosevelt's Rough Riders, a regiment
j composed of men familiar with the horse
I and the rifle. Should it be decided to en
list the full volunteer strength authorized
1 some of the new regiments will probably
j be organized as cavalry.

WHERE AND HOW
Wall Paper Was First Manufactured
While various kinds of printed
| fabrics were known to the people of
I most remote antiquity, it was not until
] the eighteenth century that wall paper
' in anything like its present form came
! into common use in Europe, though it
appears to have been used much earlier
in China. A few rare examples which
may be as early as the sixteenth cen
! tury exist in England, but these are
I imitations, generally in "flock," of the
I old Florentine and Genoese cut velvets,
! and hence the style of the design in no
way shows the date of the wall paper,
the same traditional patterns being re
produced with little or no change for
many years. It was not till the end of
the last century that the machinery to
make paper in long strips was invent
ed. Up to that time wall papers were
printed on small square pieces of hand
made paper and were very expensive.
On this account wall paper was slow
in superseding the older mural decora
tions, such as tapestry, stamped leather
and pi.p er cloth.
A work printed in London in 1744
throws some light on the use of wall
papers at that time:
"The method of printing wall papers
of the better sort is probably the same
now that it has ever been. Wooden
blocks with the design rut in relief, one
for each color, are applied by hand,
after being dipped in an elastic cloth
sieve charged with wet tempera pig
ment great care being taken to lay
each block exactly on the right place,
so that the various colors may 'register'
lor fit together. In order to suit the
! productions of the paper mills these
! blocks are made in England 21 inches
wide and in France IS inches wide.
The length of the block is limited to
what the workman can easily lift with
one hand— two feet being about the
limit, as the blocks are necessarily
thick, and in many cases made heavier
by being inlaid with copper, especially
the thin outlines, which, if made of
wood, would not stand the wear and
tear of printing.
"In 'flock' and gold and silver print
! ing the design is first printed in strong
! size, the flock (finely cut wool of the re
'■ quired color), or metallic powder, is
then sprinkled by hand all over the
paper; it adheres only to the wet size,
and is easily shaken off the ground or
unsized part. If the pattern is required
j to stand out in some relief the process
' is repeated several times and the whole
i paper then rolled to compress the flock.
! Cheaper sorts of paper are printed by
machinery, the design being cut on the
i surface of wooden rollers under which
] the paper passes. The chief drawback
to this process is that all the colors are j
applied rapidly one after the other j
without allowing each to dry separately |
as is done in hand painting. A some- |
what blurred appearance is usually the
result." — Paper Trade.

Of Duties That People Crowd Upon
The big policeman at the foot of the
stairway leading frc.-m the street to the
Reading Kailroad's Spring Garden
street station had just finished telling
that a guardian of the peace had more j
things to attend to in the line of his
official duties than appeared on the sur
face, when a good-looking young
woman, pushing a baby carriage, in
which was seated an infant of perhaps |
eight or ten months, approached him.
"Would you mind seeing that no one J
bothers the baby while I run up to the |
station?" she asked.
The officer's face took on a stern ex
"What do you want to go up to the
station for?" he questioned severely.
"To see the trains go by?"
"Oh, no," was the reply, "I just want
a time table."
"Humph," responded the bluecoat,
"I'll go up and get the time table for
you. Just wait and see that no one
bothers the baby yourself."
But the young woman was halfway
up the ste"ps by this time and there
was no-thing for the policeman to do
but stand by the baby carriage until
she returned. She was gone a little
longer, apparently, than she should
have been just to obtain a time table,
and the officer's evident anxiety in
creased Avith each passing moment.
Finally, however, she came tripping
down the steps.
"Thank you, very much," she ex»
claimed sweetly to the policeman, pre
paring to push the baby carriage up
the street. "I suppose you were afraid
that I was going to get aboard a train
and leave the baby on your hands,
The bluecoat muttered something to
the effect that he never had any such
thought, and the young woman de
"She was right, though, in thinking
that you were afraid she was going to
desert the infant," I said. "Come, now,
cnvn up. Wasn't sHe?"
The policeman grinned an expansive
"Well," he finally answered, "there is
a good deal of that sort of thing going
on, you know, and we can't be too care
ful. Remember what I was tilling you
about the multiplicity of a policeman's
duties, don't you?"
With which query he strolled on down
the street, swinging his club and softly
whistling a bar of "Pack Your Trunk
and Go." — Philadelphia Inquirer.

Possibly you walk three miles in an
hour, but that does not represent the dis
tance you travel. The earth turns on its
axis every twenty-four hours. In round
figures call the ' earth's circumference
"4 i mX) miles, and you must have traveled
during your hour's stroll a thousand miles

But this is not all. The earth makes a
journey around the sun every year. Put
the distance of our planet from the sun
at P2 OQO .OOO- miles, and the circumference

In other words, the earth travels around
the sun each day 1,584.000 miles, and every
hour— for instance, the hour during *vhieh

COMMANDED CUTTER BEAR
FORTY-EIGHT PEOPLE KNOWN
TO HAVE DIED.
Two Hundred and Fifty Survivors
Taken Out From Kotzebue
and Provided With Neces
Special Dispatch to The Call.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 24.— Captain Shoe
maker of the revenue cutter service to
day received a report from Lieutenant D.
H. Jarvis, the commander of the revenue
cutter Bear, containing an account of th«
rescue of the gold-seekers who rushed
into the Kotzebue gold country, Alaska,
in th«; summer of 1898. Lieutenant Jarvis
was taking the Bear north to Cape Bar
row on her regular trip. At Cape Prince
of Wales he learned of the awful destitu
tion which had overtaken the go]d-seeker3
at Kotzebue Sound. On arrival there ha
found a terrible condition 01 affairs. Men
had died of starvation, scurvy and by
drowning, and he obtained a list of forty
eight deaths. But the list is by no means
complete. This list has been published in
the Associated Press dispatches. Over
10W of the gold-seekers had wintered
there. The Bear, alter relieving as much
of the distress as possible and leaving
stores, lime juice, etc.. for the survivors,
took eighty-two of the survivors to St.
Michael, where they were turned over 10
the military authorities. Lieutenant Jarvis'
report is dated July 30 at St. Michael. He
reported, that he left between 225 and 2io
survivors at Kotzebue Sound. He in
formed the department that lie would pro
ceed to Cape Barrow and upon his return
would touch at Kotzebue Sound and pick
up any who desired to return with him.
Lieutenant Jarvis says: "First Lieuten
ant Bcrtholf and Surgeon Hawley were
sent to the camp at liotham inlet. They
returned with thirty-two sick and conva
lescent, all affected with scurvy. Some of
these were in very low condition, and the
chances are that some of them would not
have survived many days without rnrdi
cine. From 225 to 250 people are still in
the camp. Some had plenty of food and
means of paying their way out.
••Returning to the camp Lieutenant
Bertholf and the surgeon brought off all
those In a destitute condition or without
means— forty-eight men, two women and
an infant, making eighty-three persona
in all taken from the camp. It was not
possible to take any more at that time,
but assurance was given the people ashore
that if they did not succeed in getting
away before the vessel's return they
would be taken out by the Bear. There
were plenty of provisions for the use of
those remaining, many of them having a
year's outfit, and the only sick person
remaining was a Mrs. Smith, whose cas«
was so serious that she could not be
"The rush of people to Kotzebue Sound
■was a sad. deplorable affair. Misled by
false information and advertisements,
1200 people, many totally unfitted to stand
hard conditions and climate, rushed to
the country during the open season of 189*.
During the winter no gold whatever was
found, and in the spring they sought every
means of escaping from the region, and
in so doing: many lost their lives."
"1 apprehend also that many of those
who started coasting along the shore for
Cape Nome may have lost their lives in
the Ice and bad weather."
Lieutenant Jarvis. who accomplished tho
rescue of the sold seekers at Kotzebua
Sound, is the revenue marine officer who
in the -winter of ISH7-9S led a relief expedi
tion from Tur.miak, 200 miles below St.
Michael, to Point Barrow. Over 1500 miles
of snow and ice in the dead of winter h«
pushed an expedition for the relief of th<»
ice-imprisoned whalers at Point Barrow.
He arrived there with nearly 500 reindeer
after four months of almost indescribable
hardships. It was the only Arctic relief
expedition ever attempted in midwinter.
For his heroism nn that occasion the Pres
ident recommended that Congress givo
him a vote of thanks stnd award him a
