HARRY SAMUELS AND
META ASHER CONCERT
The musical season was opened under
the most auspicious circumstances at
Rherman-Clay Hall on Thursday, when
Miss Meta Asher and Harry Samuels
made their initial bow after their return
fn.m abroad, where they spent several
years in study with some of the foremost
masters. Every available space was oc- j
1. which was a compliment to the |
Lgerial ability of Sir Henry Heyman, .
under whose direction the concert was j
given. It was a most flattering tribute to
the young, artists that the audience con
sisted of San Francisco's foremost music
lovers ajid included many members of thu |
"swell" set. Both young musicians have
reason to feel proud of the cordial re
ception accorded them.
The playing of the beneficiaries soon
showed that they were fully entitled to
ration bestowed upon them. Harry
Bamuels demonstrnfil that he had not I
. . ;i remarkably flueni technique and a j
iind sure attack, but that he lists an i
c temperameni which manifests It

idered every number In a highly |
.ible. manner, it will not be a mistake
I >'lect the "Faust" fantasia as his
achievement, for herein the tech
intricacles and emphatic sentiment
. manded the skill of the artist as well
as the phenomenal memory of the genius.
Any one willing to give credit to those;
who deserve it will not be unwilling to ,
acknowledge- the urti-tic superiority of j
Harry Samuels as a violinist. It reflects j
much credit upon Sir Henry Heyman |
that this yi/ung man was his pupil, and i
touched off a bunch or red fire and the
parade started. It marched as follows:

Not less than 2000 men were in line —
maybe more. Down .Mason to Market
it marched, headed by a wagon t-pout
ing red fire, and down Market to the
ferry, crowds on both sides of the
street cheering as. they passed. Cali
fornia Parlor, the banner parlor of the
organization, which had the honor of
furnishing tho grand marshal for the
parade, led the way for the other na
tives. For one reason and another it
made a small turnout, hardly exceeding
in number the band preceding it with
its drums and its dozen pair of lungs
announcing- the now familiar "Hot
Time." In spite of lack of numbers,
however, it marched jauntily with the
knowledge that It would be reinforced
to-day in such numbers as to make far
from a poor showing In the big Admis
sion day parade.
Mission Parlor No. 3t5, which followed
next, was strong in number, its mem
bers beautifully badged for the occa
sion. Immediately on their heels came
the band of the First California Vol
- Regiment, leading the members

One of the things brought back by the
First California Regiment from the
islands Is a debt on the canteen account.
which the officers of the command are
now trying to adjust. When the rai
ment was In Manila flßhr of the com
panies went into a canteen scheme. The
plan was all right as a scheme, but not
as a business proposition, and when the
regiment was ordered to Negros the can
teen was somewhere near Si'oo in debt.
First one battalion was ordered away and
then another, and in ihf hurry of depar

the separation of the companies the ac
counts of th<» canteen got In a bad tangle.
The canteen was run by a board of ofll
cers consisting of Captain O'Xell, Cap
tain Connolly and Lieutenant McGurren.
Lieutenant McGurren was the canteen
officer and he did all the purchasing.
When the regiment came together again,
one of the principal matters it partially
settled up was tho canteen account, but
when it left Manila there was still due

League Club of Chinatown a.!"! has given
the police trouble for a long time on ac
count of the i !< verness in which Its man
agers and members have eluded arrest.
It has been the custom of the players
to place their gambling outfit in a safe
the moment the bluecoats were spotted
by the lookout, thus leaving no evidence
in sight by which they could be taken
Into court. This trick w:is repeated last
night by the wily Chinese, but this time
it did not work, for the reason that one
of the officers had had the forethought
to provide himself with a search warrant.
By virtue of this, the safe was opened
and the paraphernalia secured. The cap

Husband Lost in the Klondike
Two years ago J. Brown, a laborer,
went to the Klondike in the hope of Im
proving his worldly condition. For a while
he wrote and sent money to his wife and
little ones, now living at 713^ Minna
street. He stated that he was doing fairly
well. Finally the letters and remittances
ceased to come, and the family is now in
destitute circumstances. Mrs. Brown has
requested Secretary Beanson of the Eu
reka Society for the Protection of Chil
dren to help her ascertain if the husband
and father is dead or alive. Mrs. Beanson
lias written to the police of Dawson for

William Belycft and J. C. Rodgers en
tered into a written contract with Mrs. L.
M. Bigelow to construct a building of
eight Hats for her on Bush street. The
work was sub-contracted to C. A. Ma
comber, John Tuttle and J. C. Reid, who
furnished the material and performed the
labor. The latter filed mechanics' lien." on
the property, consolidated their suits and
received judgment for the amount due.
The case was appealed to the Supreme
Court, and yesterday an opinion was
handed down affirming the Judgment of
the lower court.
RAWHIDE MINE SUIT.
The Owners Win — Sale by George M.
Pinney Set Aside.
News comes from Boston that yesterday
the. Supreme Court of Massachusetts up
held the judgment rendered by the lower
court in favor of Nevilla, Martin and Bal
lard, the owners of the Rawhide mine,
and against Norton, Pinney and associ
ates, the opinion holding that the sale of
the mine which George M. Pinney pre
tended to make to one Norton was illegal
The facts as shown on the trial of the
case are that some four or five years ago
George M. Pinney, who is not entirely
unknown In this State, induced the own
ers of the Rawhide mine to give him a
letter of attorney to sell their stock on
the Boston Mining Board upon certain
terms and conditions, one of which wa.s
that all sales of the stock should be for
cash and the money be turned into a
bank in Boston for the owners, it being
agreed that this bank should hold the
stock until it was sold. Pinney was a
mere broker to find customers and was
not Intrusted with the stock or the money
coming from the sales. Not long after
this arrangement there was a big im
provement in the mine, and Pinney, as
suming to act for the owners, made an
agreement with Norton to sell him the
whole stock upon eight or nine months'
lime. Th<» owners promptly repudiated
this transaction, claiming that Norton was
a man of straw and that the whole busi
ness had been concocted by Pinney and
his confederates, including one Pierre
Humbert Jr., to cheat and defraud his
principals. Suit wa.s thereupon brought
against the owners for damages on ac
count of refusing to carry out this Illegal
snle, which has now been finally dvclaed
against Norton and his associates.

On the night of the assault charged.
Willie Lynch, with a number of
companions, was playing in the vicinity
of the pavilion. Kcnville ordered them
away, and as they did not obey he hurled
his club among: them. Willie Lynch was
picked up In an unconscious condition and
examination disclosed the fact that he
had sustained a fracture of the skull.
Citizens who saw the boy fall took- the
stand during the trial of Kenville and
swore that he threw the club that injured
the boy for life. On the other hand, the
defense proved that some stones had been
thrown into the crowd during the even-

by one of the stones they claimed that

they drcve over the railroad crossing at

FRENNA HELD TO ANSWER.
Judge Graham Decides Ha Must Be
Tried for the Turner
Joseph Frenna was held to answer for
the murder of James F. Turner yester
day by Judge Graham. The court had the
matter under advisement for several days
and when the case was called yesterday
said that after reviewing the evidence
he had concluded that the crime of mur

was sufficient testimony to warrant the
belief that the defendant was guilty
thereof. Bail was fixed in the sum of
Attorney George D. Collins objected
strenuously to admitting the defendant
to bail, and at once filed an affidavit be
fore Superior Judge Daingerfield upon
which a writ of certiorari was issued, re

last evening. At that time Attorney John
A. Hosmer attempted to file a demurrer
to the writ, but Attorney Collins object
ed, and after lengthy argument the court
refused to allow the respondent to in
terpose the demurrer. The case went
over until next Monday afternoon at 4
o'clock. In the meantime Frenna will
have to remain in jail, although he has
bondsmen ready to qualify in the sum
fixed by Judge Graham.
