THE LEADERS LOST.
Frisco Turned the Tables en tlie
F.OSCD6 Co_sli_ Pitched Effective Ball for
the Home Team.
Harper's Curves Were Puzzling, But His Sup
port Was Poor— Results of Games
on Eastern Fields.
Coughlin was in the pitcher's box for the
home team yesterday, ami Harper per
formed the twirling for the Senators. Bos
cue bad almost perfect command of the
ball and Harper was fairly steady. The
Frisco pitcher struck out two men, while
the Senator fooled thirteen batsmen, and
them was but little difference in the num
ber ol safe hits made by the contesting
Tiie came, almost from the start, became
a pitchers' battle, with Harper heavily
handicapped after the second inning. The
home players took kindly to his delivery at
the opening of the play and in two innings
made five singles, which, with a few steals
and two costly errors, netted Frisco five
runs. From the end of the secoud to the
close Harper pitched a magnificent game
and both hits aud runs were scarce ou
Frisco's side of the score-book.
Coughlin, who was warmly applauded
when be stepped on the diamond, was sized
up for eight hits by the opposing side and
half of these "safeties" were made in the
seventh and eighth innings. It began to
look like a shut-out for the visitois as the
pause rolled on, but a base on balls and
Koberts' triple saved the loaders.
The fielding of the vanquished team was
below their standard, and some of tlieir
errors were very cosily, particularly Me
. Hale's muff of Veach's line hit in the
second inning, when the bases were filled
with runners. Charley Isaacson played
first base for the Senators in place of
Stapleton, who is on the sick list. Isaacson
played good ball in his position, and his
three-bagger was a factor in one of the runs
credited to Sacramento. Bowman, although
he made two errors, played a great game
behind the bat, accepting sixteen chances,
and lie threw a number of runners out at
second base. Goodeaough led in batting,
making three safe hits off Coughlin.
Tlie play ol the home team on the field !
was very strong and steady, and the many
chances offered were seldom of an easy
character. Everett's shortstop work was
excellent, while Shea covered the territory
about second in great shape. The whole
team played ball to win, and they suc
ceeded. The score

- Horrible Murder by Children.'
A horrible murder occurred yesterday at
the Clinkscale place, thirteen miles from
Abbeville, S. C, on the 13th Inst. Three
little negro boys, aged 10, 12 : and 14, killed
their uncle, Nelson Nash, for threatening
to heat them. While he was leaning over
the fire ono of them knocked him on the
bead with an ax. then they tied him with
ropes to a mule and dragged him some dis
tance to a guily, where they hid the body,
covering it with brush. Iv returning they
attempted to conceal all traces of the mur
der, and by a clever story deceived their
aunt. She had no suspicion of what had
occurred until this morning, when she acci
dentally discovered her husband's body.
The three boys then confessed the deed,
and gave all the horrible details with gusto.
They were taken to jail and appear uncon
cerned. — N. Y. Press.

ASSAILED WITH PIES.
Two Constable* Hare a Kviich Time in
[.frying on a Bakery.
There was great excitement in the little
bakery, 810 Franklin avenue. Constable
Henry Peterson, accompanied by Attorney
Boeder, went to the bakery for the purpose
ot collecting a judgment against John Lie
brecht, the proprietor, for SlO it). Lie
brecht is a sturdy German. He appeared
at the door with his brawny arms covered
with dough and his rubicund complexion
dotted with flour. The Constable told his
object in visiting the place aud was greeted
with a laugh of derision. About a week
before Constable 1) ,lan had endeavored to
make a levy, but was compelled to retreat
under a heavy lire of bread pans and other
bakery concomitants. Constable Peterson
sized up the biawny baker and decided to
postpone operations until reinforcements
could be obtained. He signaled for Koeder
to retreat and they withdrew in good
order, while the baker confidently returned
to his dough.
About an hour afterward two men tiptoed
up to the open door and looked in. One
was Constable Peterson, while the other
was his assistant, the intrepid George Norp.
They had entered the store and a little girl
signified her willingness to sell them some
nice new bread.
"Where's Mr. Liebrecht?" said Constable
Peterson, in a gruff tone.
" He's out," saiu the little clerk.
"Where's Mrs. Liebrecht?"
"Has the fire gone out, too?" asked Norp,
as he carelessly picked up a piece of cake.
" We will capture the place," said Peter
The little clerk slipped out of the rear
door and soon the noise of heavy foosteps
sounded on the stairs.
"Where are they?" shouted a woman's
voice, and through the door came the for
midable shape of Mrs. Liehreeht.
" We have levied on the place," said Con
stable Peterson, thrusting his head up from
behind the barricade.
"You have, have you?" she shouted.
"Yes, you have," aud bang came a loaf of
bread, barely missing the Constable's head.
"Yes, you have," the irate woman shout
ed, and a shower of doughnuts scattered
like grape-shot against the barricade.
"Quit tbat," yelled the Constable. "We
are officers of the law."
"Yes, you are," was the reply, and a
lemon pie caught the hat of one of the offi
cers. Apple, blackberry, lemon, peach and
every other kind of pie then filled the air.
Big fat doughnuts Hew like hail, while
loaves of bread began to destroy the breast
works behind which the Constables had en
tren- tied themselves. Something must be
done at once. Constable Norp made a
sortie, and crawling around behind the
counter attacked the enemy by a flank
movement. He was temporarily disabled
by a big luscious lemon pie which came in
contact with his face, but he heroically
seized the enemy, and the battle was over.
Constable Peterson then raided the
money-drawer and succeeded in getting
59 96, This he pocketed, and then with his
"Talk about levying on a circus," said
Xorp, as he wiped the pie out of his eyes
i and pulled a doughnut out of bis collar,

JUSTICE IN MEXICO.
The Manner In Which is Revolutionist
WSH Ili_|lll,_ll Of.
About six weeks ago a man named Man
tiano Martinez was captured by the Federal
authorities in New Laredo, charged with
being an active revolutionist in sympathy
with the Sandoval forces, who were at that
time at work on this side of the river. He
was tried according to the Mexican law.
but what his sentence was no one knows.
Between 12 and 1 o'clock this morning he
was bound and was taken afoot by a squad
of soldiers from the Thirteenth regimental
headquarters, headed by Captain Flores,
and left the city. The soldiers and their
commander roturned to the city, but the
prisoner never returned. His wife sent
him his breakfast, but it was sent back.
She got up from her sickbed and went to
the headquarters of the regiment, where
.she was informed it was too late. She was
also told that the Government officials were
not to blame, as certain citizens of Neuvo
Laredo had given the information which
sentenced her husband to death. ; Martinez
was a brother of Dionicio Martinez, an in
ternational outlaw, who -is wanted on the
Texas side in this country for murder and
horse-theft, and also for various murders
and other crimes committed in Mexico.— St.

1 Hnnsekeeplnr or tba Man Whose Wife
la on* for ihe Summer.
"My wife is away on a vacation," said a
householder yesterday, "and for once In my
life I'm keeping tbings entirely in my own
way up at the family mansion. For the
benefit of scores of . husbands, whose wives
are away, I give the method by which I
manage to keep comfortable;
"In the first place, I expect to dirty up
every dish in the house. . As soon as I eat
my breakfast 1 pile ', the soiled dishes over
on a side-table, there 'to remain . until ray
wife returns. 1 also expect to sleep in every
bed in the house. I have already slept in
two beds and a sofa and have two more to fall
back on as a reserve. I do not bother myself
about making - the - beds. I try to feed the
birds every day, but I forgot for three days
recently, and when I finally came around
poor Tom was cold. _My shirts and things
I pile up wherever I may chance to need
them."' I believe, also, that I ' have heaped
up a few pairs of old socks, etc., under the
piano." I plead guilty to leaving a few
stray cigar stumps here and there over the
house, also to the pulling down, acci
dentally, of three shelves .in . the china
closet, leaving considerable ruin in my
wake, Iv defense I would state that I was
looking for custard pie which I understood
my wife had concealed under a platter be

never knows anything about housekeeping

' "PHIST! I- KILL'- YOU."
Anthony Botnnoth's Index Finder Mis
taken for a Pistol.
Police Judge Joachimsen heard all the
evidence yesterday in the case of Anthony
Botonoth, a laborer, charged with assault
with a deadly weapon upon Theodore
lion ike, whose father, Herman Bourke,
keeps a grocery at 111 l Howard street. He
will now have to decide whether there was
an assault or not.
It was charged by young Bourke that the
defendant entered the store and pointing a
revolver at him threatened to take his life.
Bourke Sr. had the same story to tell, but
their enemy changed the aspect of affairs
by swearing that he only pointed his finger
at the young mau.
"Herman Bourke," said he, "wrote a note
to my wife saying that I had written letters
to his wife.' Now, I don't like that, and I
goes to the store and told him that I kill
him if he write such notes. 1 goes back
again angry. The young man was behind
the counter, so I pull my finger out of my
pocket and says, T 'hist! 1 kill you,' and
that's all." ' '--_-•:.•

The San Francisco Association
An Effort to be Made to Obtain a Cumulative
Exhibit in Special Buildings for
The first annual meeting of the San Fran
cisco World's Fair Association was held in
the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce,
yesterday af tei noon. The meeting was
culled in accordance with Article XIV of
the by-laws of the association, In the
absence of the President, Mayor Pond,
G. W. McNear presided, and Thomas J.
Haynes acted as Secretary.
The small attendance gave rise to an ex
pression of feeling, by those present, that
the association should take more iuterest
iv its proceedings.
M. M. Estee spoke at length on what he
considered one of the principal aims of tho
association. He said :
A CUMULATIVE EXHIBIT.
" Next month they are going to agree
upon a site for the World's Fair in Chicago.
There is rue thing of infinite importance to
California, and especially to San Francisco,
which the delegates to the convention must
attend to when it meets on the 11th of Sep
tember. The general idea in the East is
that all products shall be exhibited irre
spective of locality, and that no State lines
shall be drawn as to exhibits. For instance,
all peaches shall be exhibited as peaches,
all pears as pears, all machinery as ma
chinery, with no State or city lines, and
nothing to identify them except the uame
of the grower or manufacturer. The scat
tering of her products all over the fair
would be a great injustice to our State.
California should insist upon a cumulative
exhibit, by which 1 mean that the products
cf California should be gathered in one
building or series of buildings. There are
ten or fifteen horticultural aud agricultural
products which are raised no place in
America save in this State. If we have a
cumulative fair California should have her
pruues, her nuts, her olives, her five or six
distinctive woods, particularly the redwood,
exhi bited in such a manner that the world
could tell at a glance the place of their pro
The speaker then moved that it be tbe
sense of the meeting tbat the -state should
take all necessary steps to obtain a cumula
tive exhibit of her products. The motion
was adopted unanimously.
LACK OF I_.T-_ItK.ST SHOWN.
After other members had spoken in the
same vein, Jules Cerf called attention to
the fact that the association was not gain
ing members as rapidly as its importance and
the interests involved warranted. He said
it had been expected that 5000 members
would have joined, whereas there wereouly
1-1 names on the roll. He asked that each
member constitute himself a committee of
one to enlarge the membership.
ELECTION OF OFFICERS.
The association took up the subject of the
election of Trustees for the ensuing year.
All the old officers were re-elected as fol
lows: E. 11. Pond, George XV. McNear,
Morris M. Estee, Colin M. Boyd, A. G.
Hawes, Isidor Jacobs, A. W. Scott, A. S.
llallidie, Jules Cerf, C. F. Bassett, C.
Jules Cerf moved that the committee elect
delegates to represent it in the convention
which meets on the 11th prox. The motion
was carried and the selection of the two
delegates to wliich the body is entitled, was
left to the Chair.
On the conclusion of the meeting the
Board of Trustees held a short session at
which they re-elected E. B. Pond President,
and Thomas J. Hnynes, Secretary of the
Democrats tome Up From San
Jose to Sober Up.

Some of the friends of the wrestler, Evan
Lewis, are wroth at the persistent efforts of
a certain local heavy-weight pencil-pusher
who "does all-round sports" to lower the
standing of the champion wrestler by
placing him on a par with a local athlete
named McLeod. Although the latter may
astonish the members of the Olympic Club
by "standing on his neck" three hours a
day so that he may strengthen the muscles
against "The Straugler's" famous holds, he
is, nevertheless, a baby athlete in the
champion's arms; in facta mere bagatelle.
Lewis has not yet mastered the won
derful feat of "standing on his neck," but
hen the wrestlers meet on the carpet it is
possible that McLeod, who is a good man
in bis class, will please the children by ex
hibiting that other wonderful trick known
as "walking off ou his ear."

A UNION FIELD DAY.
It has beeu suggested that the Keliance and
Acme clubs ot Oakland and tne Alameda
Olympic unite in giving a field day some
time this fall, either at the Oakland Trot
ting Park or at the Olympic Club grounds,
this cily, if they can he secured. The idea
is a good one and merits the consideration
of the Directors of the clubs mentioned.
There is a clause iv the constitution of the
A. A. U. which requites each club a mem
ber of the union to give at least one open
field day each year. If the P. O. A. A. A.
should adopt this rule it would tend to
direct more attention toward athletics in
tho smaller clubs.

The gatherings at tbe cricket meetings
which aie held at Alameda on Saturday and
Suuday afternoons are becoming quite
large, and the sport is rapidly becoming
popular. It was slated in some of the En
glish sporting papers recently that the Aus
tralian cricketers would return to theit
homes by way ol San Francisco. II the re
port be true the clubs of this city and Ala
meda will have an opportunity of trying
tlieir bulling, bowling and fielding qualities

Ladies' matches, says English Cricket,
seem to have found a new and, I may add,
unexpected supporter in Lord Harris, if
the following extract from the letter of a
Mahablesbwur correspondent to a Bombay
paper is to be taken as a fact Still it re
quires something of an effort, if it be true,
to picture the Governor of Bombay actively
associated with cricket of such a light and
frivolous character :
We are all feeling quite exhausted with
laughing. Lady Harris had a team of thir
teen ladies against her husband's eleven,
the latter playing left-handed aud with a
stick. The excitement was intense. The
ladies were most dreadfully in earnest, but
so nervous. They went out for 22 runs in
the first luuiug to- til for their opponents,
but warmed up afterward and got ill to
eight wickets down, when it grew dark.
Every run, every ball led to a comical situ
ation—their nervousness at miming, the
way they met in the middle from each
wicket aud consulted as to whether it was
sale to go on, and finally each would run
back to her own wicket — the way they
threw themselves ou the ball in fielding
and had to make a search in their petti
coats for it. They are all mud about cricket
vow, aud in the rains a Poona and a Bom
bay ladies' match is to come off.

TO QUENCH HIS PASSION.
An Angry Mother Dashes Vitriol Into
Joseph Andrew*' Face.
Fierce imprecations and cries of rage and
pain emanated from the house 924 Locust
street, and before the uproar had subsided
a young man, with livid face and holding
Ms hands to his head, rushed out the front
door, down the .< steps and west on Locust
street to the office of Dr. Dwelle, the near
est at hand. Bursting into the office he
cried out to the doctor : " Quick, my face is
burning up. The old hag poured vitriol on
me." '-,!^9asr^!ilS3Siif f^f^^lS3^ , 99^^ :! i t fi
- The physician eased the man's pain by
immersing bis head and face in cold water
until he was out of his anguish.., A careful
examination of the wounds showed that the
fiery liquid had been cast upon the man's
head, trickling down over bis face, leaving
livid marks on his cheeks and nose. The in
juries i were . only painful, however, not
dangerous, and according to the physician
the man will escape disfigurement. '
- ■--. The victim was Joseph- Andrews,' living
at 929 North Ninth street. , , The house from
which he had rushed in such haste is occu
pied by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Blanke, and
it was the latter who I had I put him in such
misery. Mrs. Blanke was seen by a Repub
lic reporter last night and . explained the
- . She stated that she • had found Andrews
and her 1 16-year-old daughter under : com
promising circumstances. She drove An
; drews from | the I house, and after failing to
get a warrant against him i the next day,
placed the girl in the Home of the Good
Shepherd. .Every day since then Andrews,
who had previously been making love to
the girl, bad been tormenting Mrs. Blanke,
and | yesterday, afternoon ' appeared at I the
latter' house with the proposition that he
would marry the girl if she were released.
Mrs.: Blance. however, refused to allow
this, and he immediately became insulting
and abusive. Mrs. I.l. suite was scrubbing
the floor at the time. To make the work
easier she used sulphuric acid, a vitriol, in
the water, and a bottle of the fluid was ou

Arrival In the City of, Henry ___. Dixey
With Ills Company. • -." :
A number of Henry E. Dixey's most inti
mate friends left the city yesterday to meet
the popular comedian and his big company
on the overland train, and among the num
ber was a reporter for The Call. The
party boarded the special train containing
the members of his burlesque company at
Benicia. The train consisted of five cars,
two for baggage and scenery, two sleepers,
and a private car for Mr. Dixey and his
manager, Barclay H. Warburton. Mr.
Dixey was found ■ eagerly reading The
Call, possibly as much for domestic as
for professional reasons. However, be
looked as youthful as ever, and nearly all
inquiries directly bearing on bis engage
ment here he politely referred to his hand
some young manager. The genial Henry
E. said for the sake of the female element
in his company ho wished that Frisco was
a thousand miles or so uearer the usual
theatrical route. For himself, as he re
marked, it did not matter. He had the
comfort, thanks to bis managers, of a pri
vate car, and only wished that money was
sufficiently plentiful that he might provide
private dining-cars for the whole organiza
tion, which, from a busiuess standpoint,
would of course be impossible. Keferring
to his recent engagement in Chicago, Mr.
Dixey did not disguise a certain amount of
pride, both for himself and his
management, concerning his fourteen
weeks' run in Chicago. During Uis
engagement there he put on three
productions, the last being that of " Kip
Van Winkle," about which . Mr. Dixey
seemed more than confident for tbo future,
notwithstanding the indifferent criticisms,
citing the fact that "Adonis" at its incep
tion met with the same fate.
Mr. Warburton proved a more than mod
est individual, considering the importance
of his invested interests iv the organization.
He was sanguine over the reception of the
" Seven Ages," although he was familiar
with the fact that San Francisco is particu
larly origiual in its theatrical comments,
and often pleased with that which is some
times declined elsewhere and vice versa.
He is a man of means and appears to have
tbat independent courage of sticking to his
own convictions against all odds. So fur he
has met with nothing but success.
A visit was next made to the rear car,
where a number of the Dixey girls were
found who had beeu in San Francisco be
fore. Miss Mac Branson, for instance, met
the delegation with an enthusiastic wel
come. She had some complaints to make
regarding the number of railroad ties it
took to make a mile, and wished that the
eating stations along the line were more nu
merous and better stocked. She came to
the philosophical conclusion, however, that
Frisco was close at hand, where the torrid
heat of Chicago was at un end, and where,
good living was a proverb.
The Dixey company, a "merry company
of players," individually and collectively,
all seem to be imbued more or less with the
exuberant good fellowship of their manager
and star. The company dispersed to their
several destinations ou arrival, Mr. Dixey
and Mr. Warburton going to the Baldwin
Hotel to get some little repose between
now and the rehearsal to-morrow.
WANTS HIS POKTION,
William 1. Garratt Jr. lent mil for Par
The petition of William T. Garratt Jr.,
eldest son of the late William T. Garratt, to
have awarded to him a portion of his in
heritance, was again before Judge Coffey
yesterday. The attorneys to the estate de
murred to the petition, on the ground that
the property asked for— an undivided half
of the Market-street premises— was only re
ferred to. They contended that William
might collect his younger brother's portion
of the rents as well as his own.
\V illiam's attorney then offered to let the
stepmother collect the rents. Judge Coffey
overruled the demurrer, and said the son
was entitled to some part of the estate now,
but he would allow the executrix until to
day to answer.
