The greatest benefit performance
that San Francisco has known in many
years will take place at the Audito
rium, Pagre and Fillmore streets, to
morrow evening. The program has
ber>n practically completed and Pro
moter James W. Coffroth. who is han
dling- the affair, expects that it will be
his pleasure to turn over several thou
sand dollars to the Sisters of Charity,
in charge of the hundreds of little
orphans left homeless by the burning
of the Mount St. Joseph's asylum more
than a month ago.
Coffroth and hi 6 friends have been
busy for several days, canvassing- the
city and sellins tickets for the worthy
cause. It has been their good fortune
to meet with success on every side.
The helping hand Is being extended in
every direction, and men, women and
children in all walk? of life are only
too anxious to do their share in aid
ing the cause.
The program Is one . of the most
varied and complete ever attempted at
any show given In this city in years.
There are numbers for the theater
goer, the baseball fan, the friend of
the wrestler and the admirer of the
boxing game. It will be a continuous
performance, with one attraction fol
lowine cioEely upon the heels of an
other." There will be no delays, no in
termlEslons. As fast as one turn is
finished another will be rushed on.
In addition to the regular numbers
:t :s likely that Antone la Grave, the
sensational Butchertown lightweight,
will be added to the list- Since he
boxed that, spectacular 15 round draw
with Battling Nelson a little more
than a week ago La Grave has been
anxious to appear at the benefit, and
lust as soon as Coffroth can find a
worthy opponent for him the Butcher
town lad will be put on the bill.
As was expected, the baseball
sprinting contest between the fastest
men on the San Francisco and Oakland
ball clubs is looming up as one of the
most exciting and interesting features
of the program. This race will be for
•blood" and each one of the players is
training hard for the event.
The entries include Vitt and Madden
of San Francisco and Hogan and Mag
-art of Oakland. Most of the local
fans look for Vitt to lead his field,
though Madden has many admirers,
who think that he can take the num
ber of any of them. A big crowd of
Oakland fans will come over to root
for Hogan and Maggart, both of whom
are great favorites across the bay.
VITT SHOWS SKILL.
Vitts wonderful showing In the
•\u25a0fur.go" contests before yesterday's
ball game convinced all who saw him
that the local youngster is in rare
form and will be fit to make the effort
of his life when he meets the other
speedy ones tomorrow night. Madden
did not compete yesterda.y. He is sav
ing himself for the real test. However,
he watched Vitt closely.
The accuracy throwing: contest Is an
other which bids fair to be close and
exciting. The four players already
mentioned will compete in this as well
as Mitze. Thomas, McArdle and Bodie
of Oakland and San Francisco. Bodies
stock took quite a leap yesterday when
he carried off the honors In this event
.by defeating all of his teajnmates.
The followers of the amateur ganw
are looking forward with great in
terest to the 75 yard sprinting contest,
which will bring together the fleetest
runners in the Ftate. The entries for
this event include Snedigar of the
Olympic club. Rogers of Licit, Claudius
of "the University of California, Starrett
of St. Mary's and Medlng of the army.
All of these men have shown great
form in the various -contests In which
they have taken part during the last
year, though they have never all lined
up in one event before. So evenly are
they matched that it Is hard to give
any individual the advantage. TWB
contest, as well as the various other
amateur athletic affairs, will be refeTeed
by Joseph R. HJckey and Frank Foran r
the Olympic club officials.
THREE IN" SHOTPTT .
! Three of the best shotputters in ama
tour circles, Snedigar and "Wallfisch of
the Olympic club and Scott of the Uni
versity of California, will participate
in the shotput contest. Snedi&ar seems
to have a slight advantage here, though
the others should make it every .inter
esting for him.
Gilson and Tolan. the vaudeville
stars, promise the crowd something
new In their line, thanks to the kind
ness of John Morrissey of the Orpheum,
who has also arranged for the appear
ance of the Bestyet trio and Arthur
Loftus, the tenor, and Lester Raymond.
the acrobatic juggler. Rice and Pre
vost. the funny knockabout clown per
formers, will also appear, being loaned

Battling Nelson promises to be in
his best form when he dona the gloves
for his three round bout with clever
little Eddie Dennis. One Round Hogan
will endeavor to show the crowd how
fast he can go with his old rival,
Johnny Frayne, who recently took. New
Orleans by storm.
The four wrestlers. H. F. Kolb and
E. F. Baraty. lightweights, and Her
bert Duncan and Carl Thias, welter
weights, are in good condition after
fwo weeks of training and promise to
entertain the crowd to its satisfaction.

their turn when the potato race Is on.

Musicians Give Aid
Local No. 6 of the American federa

assist in the benefit' to be given at the
Auditorium Thursday night. When the
recent dance was held at the Audito
rium the local union did not hesitate to
donate its services to the cause of the
Mount St. Joseph's asylum, and now is
willing to duplicate its contribution to
the welfare of the orphans by donating
the services of members who, as indi
viduals, will appear at the benefit which'
James W. Coffroth is arranging./ The
entertainment will be the most unique
ever presented In this city, and those
who participate, as well as those who
are buying tickets, have the satisfac
tion of knowing that they are giving
their money and their talents to a cause
which appeals to every one.

SArc FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9/ 1310.
BE REBUILT SOON
Sisters Hope Mount St. Jo=
seph's Asylum Will Be
Reared in City
To rebuild Mount St. Joseph's orphan
asylum in the city and not to return to
the former site in South San Francisco
is the strongest hope of the Sisters of
Charity just now, and all of their plans,
although tentative, are centered around
Sister Helena, superioress, believes
that Father Sullivan, superior of their
order, will reach here this week from
St. Louis, and Archbishop Riordan.^who
is deeply interested in the rebuilding of
the orphanage, is expected home this
week also. When they arrive. In San
Francisco they will consult with the
sisters and formulate definite plans as
to what manner of building will be
erected and where it will be placed.
The old "routine of life is fairly well
established in the orphanage now, and
after school the girls gather for sewing
instruction as in former days.
MAW HAPPY REUNIONS
Many parents visited the home yes
terday afternoon to see the children,
and in the great halls were pathetic
groups. Fathers -with two or three,
sometimes even four little motherless
daughters gathered Into their arms, or
a widowed mother with her lfttle ones
like tiny chickens around her. They
have felt keenly the separation during
the children's absence in the south/and
each day joyous scenes of reunion are
The furniture of the home is being
slowly accumulated, "bits of things"
coming in daily and adding 1 to the
cheer. From the greenhouse at the
burned home have been taken potted
plants, palms, ferns and other dainty
trailing green things, and these in the
halls and the chapel give a touch of
beauty that is -sorely needed.
GIRLS NEED SHOES
A plea has come from the sisters
for children's shoes. Many shoes have
been sent, but nearly all are for women
and will not do at- all for the children-
Shoes, for girls from 6 to 14, but most
of them -from 7 to 10, are a crying
need, .especially as the wet weather
comes on. |

continues to grow, and within a few
days considerable sums will be'g-ained
from the benefits which have already

Herbert H. Neal of Omaha, Neb., was
the victim. of bunkomen, who drew him
into a series of games of poor yester
day morning: and swindled him out of
$265. The bunkomen were experts
with the cue. /
Neal met a stranger In Market street
and was invited to play pool in a bil
liard and pool parlor at Taylor and
Eddy streets. They were joined by two
other men, one of whom was repre
sented as the proprietor of the estab

"Wagers were laid on the games and
Neal won $500. He demanded payment.
He was told to show his good faith by
putting up that amount, the "propri
etor" to act as stake holder.
Neal put up $260 in .cash. In the
games that followed the strangers
easily won his money. . The police
have a good description of the trio and

WOMAN IS ACCUSED
OF WOMAN'S DEATH
Mrs. Louis Marchand Succumbs
to Operation Performed
at Her Home
Baffled by the complete secrecy and
cunning displayed by her the police
find themselves without a single clew
or fact which will aid them in the
search for a woman doctor wanted in
connection with the death of Mrs. Louis
Marchand, wife of a stone mason, 210
Sixteenth avenue, who died early yes
terday morning from the effects of a
criminal operation. At the conclusion
of a day's search Detective Burke; was
forced to admit that the caution and
astuteness displayed by the practition
er, brought about evidently: by the po
lice "activitS* against "Doctor Grant and
his ilk, left him absolutely in the dark
as to her identity.
MAKES SECRET VISIT
"It is the most remarkable covering
of tracks I have run. across," he said.
"The manner in which it has been con
ducted makes it evident to us that
malpractitioners have not been fright
ened away by the activity of the police,
but that Instead they intend to carry
on their lucrative work with all the
secrecy and cunning possible." '<•
So secret was the entire affair that
even the husband had no inkling of
what had occurred until a few hours
before his wife's death. Aqcording to
neighbors a heavily veiled woman ap
peared at the residence Friday, and,
after staying an hour or so, left. Mar
chand was away at his work \ when she
made the visit. After her departure
Mrs. Marchand informed one of the
neighbors that the visitor was a "lady
Monday afternoon the professional
visited the house a second time, heavily
veiled ,as before. Monday night
Marchand was informed by his wife
that she had undergone an operation,
and a few hours later he realized that
she was dying. He called in Dr. E. L.
Fassett, SSO Clement street,; but the
woman died before he arrived. On
making- an examination; Doctor Fassett
reported the death to the coroner.
The" police went to work on the case
Immediately, but all their efforts were
fruitless. So clever 'had been the
woman doctor that in giving- her in
structions to the patient she made the
latter write them out herself.
PRACTITIONERS ARE CAUTIOUS
"From • what I can gather," said
Burke, "neither Marchand nor his Wife
knew the professional's name. The
woman, I think, was sent from some
office. She appeared secretly, did her
work and went away. Her second
visit was as secret as the first. She
left no clew by which she .could be
traced. We have a vague discription
of her from the neighbors, but to trace
her by that |is j almost hopeless."
The developments of this particular
case are to result in a stricter investi
gation and a more determined effort; to
stamp out this species of crime. Since
the arrest of Doctor Grant the signs
and advertisements formerly, flaunted
from ; offices and windows have dis
appeared, but the, police do not for a
moment believe that the colony of mal
practitioners intend to leave the; field
unless pressure of I the strongest kind
is brought, to bear upon them.
