SAN RAFAEL, Hov. 8. — Fred Car
roll, once the king of baseball catch
ers and a member of the Morris-Car
roll battery, the greatest diamond duo
of the time, died suddenly at his home
in this city of heart disease last night.
Carroll has resided in this city since
he quit the diamond fifteen years
ago. He was one of the most popular
men in the town.
Fr«d Carroll was a sandlot player of
San Francisco and played his first pro
fessional game with the great Haverly
team in 1881. Ed Morris, the world
renowned, gouthpaw, was discovered at
the same time and after setting the
town wild with their work here the
pair went to Pittsburgh where they
reigned as the kings of the green dia
mond till "King" Kelly and John
Clarkson began their eventful careers.
Carroll and Morris toured the world
with the famous All-American team.
When their race had been run the pair
settled down to private life. Carroll
played with San Francisco for a while
in 1894, but finally gave up baseball
and went into business at San Rafael,
while Morris opened a saloon m Pitts
burg. Carroll was 40 years old and
leaves a wife and three children.-

(FRENCH BARK NOTRE DAME D'ABVOR. WHICH ARRIVED ON MONDAY FROM NEWCASTLE. SHE WAS 105 DAYS

WINDS AND CALMS ARE THE CAUSE OF HER DELAY.
A Japanese Prince, blood relation of
the sun, full flowered as a chrysanthe
mum and shrouded in the impenetrable
Eastern exclusivenees befitting one of
a race that has had a throne in the
family for ages, is approaching the Oc
cident. He is due here to-day on the
steamer Manchuria. If some Russian—
if the Lena could only get her guns
out of pawn at Mare Island and sail
out en the ocean and overhaul the
M&nchuria before she crosses the
boundary lire— brave Captain Berlin
eky would take a prize that would
win him everlasting fame.
The distinguished traveler from Nip
pon, who comes hither with staff offi
cers and secretaries, is Prince Fushimi,
cousin of the Mikado, a general in the
army, a statesman, a special envoy
and a samurai of hiph degree. A
ctntury back he would have been
standing on four little blocks of wood.
a rainbow tinted kimona around him
and two swords in bis girdle with
which he would execute an offending
Jap or himself on the slightest provo
cation. Now he is garbed in the gar
ments of the present age and keeps a
sword only for full dress us A s. Yet
Fushimi is a warrior and has seen ser
vice at the front at Port Arthur in the
beginning of the furious struggle
there. A member of the Japanese le
gation has arrived from Washington
end with the Consul-General here is
preparing a reception for the imperial
visitor. The St. Francis will be taxed
for room when the flag of the Rising
Sun waves over that big hotel. Collec
tor Straxton has completed arrange
ments to have the officials and recep
tion committee meet the Manchuria in
the cutter Gulden Gate. As the liner
comes up the bay salutes will be fired
from the forts in the harbor. It is
probable that a number of vessels con
talnjng Japanese citizens will meet the
Manchuria and escort her through the
Golden Gate. Prince Fushimi will not
remain long in this city, as he Is
obliged to hurry on to Washington.
No new developments of any impor
tance were made yesterday in the mat
ter of the defalcations of former Chief
Deputy George A. Wright of the United
States; Internal Revenue, office and of
Cress linger, the suspended seizure
clerk of the Custom House. The lat
ter . department was closed on ac
count of the election,, the only
offices, open being those of the day
watchman and the Surveyor of Cus
toms to transact whatever urgent bus
iness might turn up, Deputy Surveyor
Chauncey M. St. John remaining in
his office: for the greater part of the
day. The Internal Revenue office was
open aB usual, Special Revenue Agent
Bert M. Thomas being busy in going
throueh the books and accounts of
Wright. Mr. Thomas said that he was
Investigating the whole office, includ
ing the outside deputies and would
probably be engaged in that work for
two weeks yet. Stories affecting the
competency and carefulness of Stamp
Clerk Pratt are also being looked
into, but with what result has not yet
been made public.
A circumstance that will assist ma
terially in the defense of Wright is
that Agent .Thomas thus far has not
found any alterations or omissions In
his accounts. None of his records are
missing, so that there will be no diffi
culty whatever in ascertaining the ex
act sum said to have been "held out"
The charge of "breach of trust'
against Wright was a sore blow to Col
lector Lynch, he having placed impli
cit confidence in the young man. Ow
ing to his friendship for Wright and
his father Collector Lynch surrendered
the whole of a year's salary In order
to make the shortage good.
It Is said that betting on horse races
was the caiise of the ruin of both
Wright and Unger, and that the Inter
nal Revenue office always bore the rep
utation of being a nest of "sporty"
people, whose weakness was the pool
rooms. .The negro Dillard, who is now
in Jail for "grafting" in the matter of
issuing fraudulent Chines^ certfricates,
testified several years ago on the trial
of former Collector Welburn that he
used to carrv a sack of money to the
races to bet on the horses selected by
the clerks in the Internal Revenue of
fice, who had contributed to fill the
sack., Women as well as men. he said,
had given him money to bet for them.
Cress Unjer kept out of the sight
of the general public yesterday, and
could be found only by a few of his
intimate friends and sympathizers.
United States District Attorney
Woodworth spent several hours in his
office yesterday arranging his papers
and looking into the Wright case. He
said 'that he would not move In the
matter of the Unger defalcation untli
he had a^elved instructions from
Washington, and that he expected to
receive them to-day.
No accident marred the launching,
which was superintended by John W.
Dickie, who was assisted by D. Han-
Ion, foreman of th« shipyard. Just be
fore the boat started down the ways
W. F. Kelly, general manager of the
company, placed on the stern of the
vessel a metal plate on which was en
graved the name San Francisco. A
large number of the o^lciala of the
company attended the launching,
among whom were E. A. Heron. J. Q.
Brown and Frank W. Frost. Many
ladles were present.
The San Francisco will be the fast
est ferry-boat on the bay. She will
have engines of 2000 horsepower, which
are estimated to give her a speed of
14 Vj knots an hour. The dimensions of
the new vessel are as follows: Length,
200 feet; beam, 35 feet; depth. 17 V» feet.
The seating capacity will be about 1000.

and with scarcely a tremor the new
vessel glided down the ways and took
the water with a rush. With foam and
spray glancing from Its bow the new

A vote of thanks was extended to
Mrs. Martin Kellogg for her gift to the
university of the classical library of
her late husband, comprising about 300
volumes. An anonymous alumnus, once
the recipient of a scholarship, was also
thanked for his gift to the university
of $156 In repayment of principal and
interest on the amount • received by
him. The money will be used for a
graduate scholarship for 1905-W.
It was reported that during October
the music and drama fund derived
$&43 77 from entertainments in the

profits from that source to $1632 61.
This money is laid up against a. pos
sible unprofitable show.
The committee on nnaclal affairs of
the medical department proposed the
establishment of a university hospital
to be administered by the Regents, but
on account of the slimness of the as
semblage the matter was laid over till
