Florences Right to 111* Estate.
J. fl. Boa'.t, counsel for Florence Blythe,
beean the closing argument for his client
yesterday. He contended that the proof
had been established in tlie testimony that
Florence was adoptod by Blythe and legit
imized. As indisputable evidence of this
he referred to Blythe having given the
maiden name of his mother at the Hibernia
Bank as 1 ioieuco Savage and his having
written to Julia Perry to name her daugh ter
Florence.. The counsel also devoted a great
deal of time to refuting the statements of
Florence's opponents regarding the virtue
of Julia Ashcroft and reviewed the testi
mony to show that they were unfounded.
Meeting of the Republican Connty
Com mil fee.
The wheels of the Republican local ma
chine were put in motion last night, and it
is to be presumed that from this time on to
the end of the campaign they will revolve
with accelerated speed.
Chairman U. C. Meyers set the machinery
to going last night when he called the
County Committee to order in the rooms of
the Central Committee at 419 California
street, and while there was a slight hitch or
two at first, everything seemed to move
When the Secretary called the roll it was
found that there were twenty-three of the
old members present, and he stated that of
the seventeen new members chosen by the
sub-committee fourteen were present, and
all bad signified their willingness to serve
with the oxceptioa of W. F. Whittier, who
had written that an enforced absence from
the city would make it necessary for him to
decline to act. Hi) recommended that J. li.
Stetson b6 appointed in his stead.
It was then stated that in tho case of D.
S. Dorn, who had been chosen as coinmit
teeman for the Thirty-sixth District, a pro
test had been made by 10(i voters composing
what was known as Club 1, who claimed
tha.t Mr. Dorn was not a resident of the
district. It looked for a time as if a wran
gle might ensue, but J. 11. Mahouey solved
the vexed question by inovine tliut a com
mittee of three be appointed to investinate
the qtiestiou ot Mr. Uorn'ij residence. On
this committee the Chair appointed Meyer
Jacobs, J. 11. Mahoney aud L. V. Clack
After being out for a short time they re
ported that they had heard evidence on both
sides, and asked for a wuek in which to
make a report.
Dr. Harris then moved that the body go
into committee of the whole aud settle the
matter forthwith, and this, in spite of a
despairing plea for mercy, was carried.
After going into committee of the whole
R. J. JleCluney, Secretary of Club 1, was
called In and testilidU that on learning that
Mr. Dorn had been appointed for the Thirty
sixth District they bad sent a committee
from house to house, but had been uuable
to locate Mr. Dorn in the district. At 4.W
Onk street they hud Men unable to procure
an entrance, but were told by the next-door
neighbors that Mr. Doru was boarding at
tlie Palace. The committee then went to
the latter place and was iufonned by the
clerk tliut Mr. Dorn had been a guest at the
house since March 17th.
Mr. Dorn then arose and stated that he
hail resided at 430 Post street since the Ist
of December; that he had stopped occa
sionally at tlie l'alaco when downtown,
and would probably stop there again. He
added that his landlord, Herbert E. Ilall,
was present aud would testify.
Mr. Hall stated that Mr. Dorn had roomed
at his house since December Ist, and by a
unanimous vote Mr. Dorn was seated.
John H. MUliu was also given a suat iv
the committee, and on suggestion of the
Chair the body went into executive ses
si n. which lasted but a short time, and
during which, it U understood, the question
of finances was discussed.
The Republicans of Precinct It of tbe
Fort}--cighth Assembly District met at
Patterson's Hall Wednesday uight and
elected the following ofticers: Isidore
himon, President; Dr. li. H. Baumeister,
Vice-President; George McDonald, Secre

Mr. Simon spoke on tho issues of the

the Ktand he took in the House as a good
Uepublican. He said that be hoped that
the Democratic measure of civil service
would be abolished, so that school-boys
cuuld not get places instead of workers for
the good of tho party. Dr. Baumeister
bpoke in the same strain.

AN OPEN LETTER
A Disgusted Citizen!
San Francisco, April 29, 1890.
Dear Sir : You are a stranger, to
me. although I have lived here some
years, but allow me as a citizen who
appreciates honesty and fair deal-
ing to CONGRATULATE you on your
honorable mode of conducting busi-
It Is high time such men as you
Join hands with the public and drive
out from their midst unprincipled
dealers who are fooling and hum-
bugging the people by their unprin-
I have been in foreign lands, have
seen much of the world, customs
and habits of various people, but
San Francisco clothiers (with a few
honorable exceptions like yourself)
takes the cake," to use a vulgar
Two weeks ago I was attracted by
a sign '"Everything Must Co; Suits
at Your Own Price." I went into the
store to buy a pair of cheap pants to
wear as a change. I was shown
some shoddy pants marked down
from $5 to $2 5O ; they were not
worth $1.1 went direct to I X L and
secured a pair for $2 I O worth three
pairs of those offered at the other
store where they are "closing out"
at 5O cents on the dollar.
Last Friday one of these stores of-
fered little suits to fit boys from 4 to
I 2 years old at sOc per suit. I went
with my two little boys, but they re-
fused to sell me the same at sOc as
they had '"Just sold out," but if I
came on Saturday morning at 9
o'clock they would have some in.
Of course I had no faith of being
served, although they exhibited a
large pile of those very suits at the
door labeled SO cents.
I went again on Saturday morning,
Just for fun, and asked fora suit to
fit a boy of eight years of age. Was
shown them. They wrapped one up
and demanded SI. I refused to pay
$1; refused to be imposed upon.
Whether the suit was worth a dollar
or not is not the question. They ad-
vertised all sizes, from 4 to I 2 years,
at sOc per suit and my boy was only
the size of an 8 year old boy. They
had the cheek to tell me again they
had "Just sold out" the larger suits
for sOc ; the only ones they had left
were fit for babies 4 years old, but if
I came on Monday morning at 9
o'clock they would have some ready,
as they put I 000 of the 50c suits on
sale every day. I said, "you have
hundreds of suits at thedoor at sOc ;
why do you fool your customers that
way?" "Oh '"they said, "we can-
not unpack them just now; come
Monday at 9 o'clock. Monday morn-
ing I was there on time Just to see
how far they would carry their lies
and humbug. A new man was be-
hind the sOc counter and he had the
auaacity to tell me "we have Just
sold all the sOc suits; cleared them
out on Saturday," etc.
Just then a lady with her two boys
was giving them a bit of her mind.
They had got her down twice before
on a fool's errand. She had brought
two boys all the way from South San
I told them what I thought and
called their attention to two signs
they had at the door, which were lies
on the face. One sign said they
were selling off because of a hard
winter and bad outlook and over-
stock; the other sign said their
stock was a consignment which had
been sent to them to close off at 50c
on the dollar. So they made them-
selves out liars and were swindling
and humbugging and fooling the
Every time I went somebody was
grumbling for the same reason as
myself and I hold such rascals are
demoralizing the commercial life of
San Francisco and destroying pub-
lic confidence, injuring the public
morals and ought to be driven out of
For obvious reasons I do not wish
my name to appear in public on this
subject. Yours truly,
