SKATS FOX _UI*_KVISOKS.
Chief Se-nnell Interferes Willi a Little
D. McLean commenced the construction
of elevated scats over the little plaza in
front of the now City Hall yesterday after
noon, and was suddenly stopped by an order
from Chief Scannell.
Mr. McLean only very recently conceived
that scheme as a me: ns of making quite a
handsome little profit out of the Native
Sons' parade, as he Intended the seats fnr
sale to parties wishing to see the proces
sion. On Monday night last he bad a peti
tion all ready to present to the Board of
Supervisors for » permit, when it was sud
denly discovered that In all such cases the
law quires the usual process of adver
tising, etc., for a ' ertain number of weeks.
01 course the time was tio short, so the
resolution, all made out ready for the
board to order to print, was withdrawn.
Mr. McLean then made a personal canvass
of the Supervisors and gut all their signatures
granting a permit except Elleit's and No
ble's, the Mayor also refusing to sign. But
lie had such a splendid working majority on
bis petition that he regarded it as equiva
lent to the privilege, hence he made all
preparations to go ahead building the seats.
The fiist stanchions were hardly in place
when the rude, cruel interruption of Chief
Scannell suspended operations, and the lum
ber now lies scattered around on the lawn
ami pavements rig Jit where the workmen
dropped it. The Chief's ground for Inter
fering was that it is against tlie law to erect
a wooden structure within the fire limits.
ll mis are very broad around the city gov
ernment lhat the Chief's objections had a
i.-iv hollow ling to them, and that before
the sun is many hours high to-day he Will
have urgent business down in some other
ii.it ii town sufficiently urgent to detain
1 lm till tin* seats are all completed.
Ihe Supervisors signed McLean- peti
tion upon condition that they were to lime
100 seats free of charge. That considera
tion, it is believed, will be strong enough to
change the Chief's interpretation of the law,
especially in view of the fact that a wooden
structure of exceedingly inflammable ma
terial is being erected across Market street,
opposite the Pin lan Building, that no one
has offered to interlere with. It is suggested
that the fact that the Native Sons' arch is
uot to be used for one man's pecuniary
benefit, as the elevated seats would be, is
the Chiefs reason fornot interfering with it
NO KEVIKW STANDS.
.1,:.-. Scannell Will Not Allow Them on
An order was issued yesterday by Chief
Scannell of the Fire Department revoking
all pei mite to erect review stands along the
route of the Native Sons' parade on Admis
sion day. The Chief stated as his reason
for the refusal that the erection of the
stands was a flagrant violation of the lire or
der, and consequently he would not recog
nize the Supervisors' permits, that body
having power only to pass resolutions re
garding tin- erection of stands. Several of
I ._ -lands weie in course of construction,
and the men working on iliem were stopped
at • their task.-.. A temporary building on
Larkin street, opposite the Mechanics' Pa
vilion, to be used as a refreshment booth by
a restaurateur, was also objected to by Chief

James Moran, an expressman at 415 Elev

It is thought that Moran had lost his rea

change in his actions and manners to bis
wife and children. He was not in his usual
grot spirits. When morning came he got
up from his bed and went to a closet where
be kept a bunting-knife and before his wife
could imagine what his intention was the
keen blade was plunged deep into big heart
by his own band. Moran fell to the floor
dead. Late in the afternoon bis death was
reported to the Coroner.

of Ireland. He leaves a widow and two

Tbo Corrupt and Corrupting
Pagan Escapes the Law.
A Story of the Boss' Brigands, in Which Har
der, Perjury and Bribery Are Leading
Features — All for Coin.
The third trial of the notorious "Little
Pete," with whose name is so intimately as
sociated that of Christopher A. Buckley, was
completed yesterday afternoon and given to
the jury about 4 o'clock.
His appearance before the public this time
has caused little interest or comment, and it
seems to have been partially forgotten that
when he first cropped up. about four years
ago, the development, in connection with his
ca-e revealed one of the most corrupt admin
istrations ever known in a municipal govern
A few of the facts dragged from their ob
scurity and presented again to the public
gaze may prove of service just now, when
Buckley is assuming to be so very active iv
nominating State and municipal tickets for
liis wine of the Democratic party.
MURDER MOST FOUL.
" Little Pete" first came into public no
tice In connection with the celebrated Lee
Chuck murder case. Pete, or Fung Chiug,
as he is familiarly known among China
men, represented a certain faction of the
Chinese element that was bitterly antagon
istic to another element represented by Tie
Yeun. Lee Chuck was Pete's body-guard.
One night in September, 1886. a loud, ring
ing shot was heard in the quiet of Spofford
alky, and in another instant thu lifeless
body of Vie Yeun was found by two police
men stretched out upon the cobble-stone
pavement Chuck was apprehended, ar
rested, tried, convicted anil sentenced to be
banged: his case appealed to the Supreme
Court, the judgment sustained, anil he was
finally executed in the summer of 1888.
When Lee Chuck was on trial every possi
ble effort was made by his principal, Lit
tle Pete," to secure his acquittal, and the
means employed was to bribe the witnesses.
Pete, by the wav, had already acquired con
siderable dexterity in this sort of work, In
deed, lie hail become well-known among the
corrupt influences of the Police Courts as a
successful Police Court manipulator, partic
ularly in Chinese cases, and many were bis
fellow-countrymen who escaped punish
ment through his influence. But he over
reached himself in the Lee Chuck case-
A TRAP FOB THE BRIBER.
The two policemen. Martin and Love, who
were the only two dangerous witnesses
against Chuck, set a trap for him into
which he fell ultimately, tliou_h not readily.
They suggested to him the advisability of
paying well for their testimony, and after
some persuasion he finally offered them a
small sum of money. The sum was not
large enough to suit them, and limy offered
their testimony in Chuck's behalf for S_)00.
This sum was agreed upon, although never
paid. Pete says, however, that he did pay
both policemen some $-100 or r >< X) altogether.
After Chuck's conviction Pete was ar
rested, and then commenced the active
workings of the corrupt machine, as least so
far as the public had knowledge, in which
Buckley and Pete had for a long time been
such active factors.
About this time the now famous Grand
Jury, of which Stuart Menzies was foreman,
was in session. The circumstances sur
rounding Chuck's case had been brought to
its attention and were being closely watched,
particularly as it was known that during
Chuck's trial everything that money and in
fluence could do was being jointly brought
to bear by Buckley and l'ete to secure his
The next stage in the case was " Lilt
Pete's" trial. While in prison ho openly
boasted that he would never he convicted.
He had too much '* pull." He was right, at
least so far as the first trial was concerned,
for the jury disagreed.
All this time the " pull " was at work.
The second trial resulted more disastrously
for Pete. The '* pull had become fright
ened, one of the gang "skipping" to
Chicago, and the jury came iv with con
It was a terrible blow to the young crim
inal, and out of his dismay he hardly knew
which way to turn. Finally, in a fit of des
peration lie revealed the secrets of the
machine. He said that Buckley had thrown
him In a hole and lie was determined to get
even. Menzies of the Urand Jury was noti
fied that Pete would talk. Pete did talk.
He told where the records could be found
that would explain the whole situation.
They were at his headquarters on Clay
street just hove Kearny. Mr. Menzies
went there with an officer and raided tho
place. The records were found and seized and
then followed one of the most exciting
scenes ever known in thatrotton concern,
the Buckley ring. The alarm was instantly
sounded all along the Buckley line and con
sternation prevailed in his camp. If those
records became public Buckley's stronghold
must crumble, and prison cells would open
for the whole gang. The re.-ords must De
secured at any cost— they were.
SECURED THEY WERE. -
H. H. Lowenthal was quickly summoned,
and by tbe aid of a replevin nearly all the
documents were taken from Menzies nnd
put in the Sheriff's possession. The Sheriff
then was William McMann. Some of 'the
more important documents M<*nzies had se
creted and refused to surrender- He took
them straight to the Grand Jury room, and
there they became a part of the Grand Jury
But the Grand Jury had a still better
clew, so it supposed, for "Pete" himself had
made up his mind, as a punishment to Buck
ley for throwing off on him, to go before
that body and tell the truth.
Buckley and his cohorts were informed of
Pete's determination. Here was another
fearful dilemma that must be met. That
heathen must never be allowed to go before
that body. What was to be dune?
Pete was sentenced on Saturday. On
Monday he was to tell his story to the
Grand jury— but that Monday never came.
tin Sunday Buckley's Sheriff, McMaun,
shipped Pete to Foisom.
Not to be defeated, M.\ Menzies got an
order from Judge Coffey summoning Pete
from Eoisoin to appear before the Grand
Jury. A Deputy Sheriff went after blm,
and on the same train bolh ways was
Lyman- I. Mowry, who bad been Pete's
friend throughout and who bad advised
ii tin to tell bis story to the Grand Jury. Mr.
Mowry hoped to get a chance to speak to
"Little Pete" and urge him not lo change
Ills mind. He failed. No one was allowed
to go near Pete except the Deputy Sheriffs
and some of Buckley's gang. When be got
back to this city and was taken before the
Grand Jury lie was as dumb as a clam. Not
a woid could be squeezed out of him.
That was the end of the whole case, so far
as the Grand Jury was concerned. The ex
in,sure., and general cleaning out of a gang
of conupt politicians and plunderers, that
promised so much and was so anxiously
looked lor by tbe public, was completely
frustrated by Buckley and bis associates. |
This is in brief the written history of one
of the most exciting events in the later an
nals of San Fraucisco. Now, the unwritten
• TWO TRIALS.
Lee Chuck was tried before Judge Toohy
and convicted. Robert Ferral conducted
the prosecution, and was paid by the friends
of Vie Yeun. He then dropped out of the
case and the Vie Yeun faction has never
since taken any inleiest in it.
"Little Pete' 1 was also tried before Judge
Toohy. After the conviction Pete said he
hud paid Buckley $12,000 to gel all the par
ties connected wiih the Vie Yeun murder
acquitted. Buckley, he said, undertook the
contract for that price. Forty-five hundred
dollars of it was to pay for his own (Pete's)
share in the case on the charge ot bribery.
Judge Toohy and Buckley had a serious
falling out about tlie time "Little Pete" was
convicted. "'."'" :
MORE BLOODY THREATS. .
When Lyman Mowry went to Folsom to
accompany "Little Pete" back to this city
and see that he went before tbe Grand Jury
with au unchanged determination to tell the
truth, the Deputy Sheriff detailed to bring
Pete back refused to let Mr. Mowry speak
to him, and told him (Mowry) that if he
went near Pete or attempted to speak a
word to him he (the deputy) would kill him
on the spot.
W hen Pete got back to San Francisco lie
had been "seen" by the Buckley gang,
and afterward told Mr. Mowry that he would
not testify before the l Grand Jury because
Buckley had promised to pay him back the
$4500. It proved as he said, and he did not
When "Little Pete" was brought up for
trial Major E. B. Stonehill was District At
torney. When the - trial was called Mr.'
Stout hill was taken suddenly ill— so very ill
that no one. not even his wife, was allowed:
to see him. It is not on record, and no one
knows it to be a fact, that one night when
Mr. Sionehill was so very sick he was clos- ;
eted lor four hours with Christopher Buck
ley, Jere Driscoll and two , others. - Soon ■
afterward"' Mr. . Stonehill ■ recovered suffi
ciently to tako a brief trip East for his :
health, and he never did appear • in the
; "Little Pete" case.
: MORE MONEY. . .
- The ' records of the : case have been care-'
fully searched -from end to end, but it can
no where be found that David Regens burger,
who was an assistant In the District Attor
ney's office, approached "Little Pete" one
day during the progress of the ; trial and in
the presence of Lvman Mnwry. and said: s
":,"— * —-j you, ; when ; are you ' going to
come down with the rest of that money?
Do yon want to to to the Penitentiary?"
Mr. Mowry at once spoke up, not waiting
for Pete to answer, and asked: -..
--"Do you want to go to the Penitentiary?'
If it is • not a court record it is a record
somewhere else that "Little Pete" then
said he had already given ; Regensburcer
3250 or thereabouts, and that he next wanted
Something was said in court the other
day, when Pete was called for trial, that
Mr. Knight had stepped out of the case, but
it was not explained that Knight refused to
defend Pete further because Buckley would
not pay him what he demanded; neither did
it appear as hart of the testimony tnat Pete
made a threat right in the court- room, in
the presence of one or two witnesses, that
Buckley would have to pay for his defense
or he would tear him in pieces by sections,
figuratively speaking, and let tbe public see
what he is.
It is known, but not officially, that when
Judge Van Iteyuegom sent a sheriff to find
Mr. Knight on an attachment and could not
find him, Jere Driseoll and Jake Rudolph,
Buckley's lieutenants, were also looking af
ter him very earnestly. Whether they found
him or not may be guessed by the public,
in view of the fact that Mr. Knight appeared
in court the following day to defend Pete as
tiioii.h nothing had ever happened.
But there is another feature that the
records are as dumb about as "Little
Pete" was before the Grand Jury.
What was Major Stoiiehill doing in
the prosecution Any one who has been
watching the District Attorney's ollice very
closely of late will have little trouble recall
ing a recent case whero the District At
torney refused the assistance of Mr. Stone
hill, and the latter made many severe public
criticisms of the act. The inference was ir
resistible that Mr. Page felt he could con
duct his office without the assistance of Mr.
Stoiiehill. And yet, at a time least expected
and least required there was
Mr. Stonehill left in the presence of the
court, with blood in both eyes and a sword
of fire and howl that "Little Pete" must bo

Not the friends of Tie Yuen, for they said
that if they needed any more legal services
they would call on Robert Ferral. who had

BELOW HIGH TIDE.
The Supreme Court So Decide.
the Great Land Case.
The Supreme Court yesterday filed its de
cision in the celebrated case of the United
Land Association and Clinton C. Tripp
against Thomas Knight, which involved the
title to the block of land bounded by Berry,
Seventh, Eighth and Channel streets and
known on the city map as Block 40.
The Supreme Court affirms the decision
of the lower court, thus giving the land to
the United Band Association and to Clinton
The whole question of the title depended
upon whether the land was above or below
the high-water mark on tlie 7th day of July,
1846. the date of the conquest of California
by the United States. Both the lower and
the higher court decided that it was below
the high-water mark.
li the land was below the high-water
mark the title to it was originally vested in
the State of California, and was disposed of
by the Board of Tide-land Commissioners
to the parlies from whom the present own
ers got their title. If it was above the high
water mark, then it belonged to the city
■and county of San Francisco by virtue of a
grant to the pueblo of Yerba Buena, which
gave to the pueblo four square leagues of
land, above Men-water mark, on the penin
sula bounded by the Bay of San Francisco,
the ocean and a straight line from shore to
shore between the two. The title of Thomas
Knight came from the city and county of
San Francisco. : ..• »~.-..v--
The first survey, which Is the recognized"
one, was made by the Surveyor-General of
California in the years 1867 and 1808, and
was duly approved on the llth day of
November, 1878, by J. A. Williamson, Com
missioner-General of the Laud Office. The
second, and now illegal, survey was made in
the year 1884, by Frederick yon Leicht, by
direction of the Secretary of tlie Interior,
but it was never approved. This survey
placed the land in question above high-water
mark on the 7th day of July, 1846.
On the 20th day of June, 1884, the Presi
dent of the United States, by proclamation,
released all claim of the United States to
the land in the survey made by Yon
Leicht to the city and county of San Fran
cisco. If this quit claim by the United States
carried ihe title with it, then the land would
belong to Knight; but the Supreme Court
holds that this proclamation merely released
the claims of the United States and passed
no title, except aeainst the Uuited States.
The decision was signed by Justices Fox,
Sharpstein and Paterson, a concurring
opinion was filed by Justice Thornton and
a dissenting oiinion by Beatty, Works and
The decision affects the title to property
worth millions of dollars, for which only
one block of land is directly involved in the
present suit. The title to nearly fifty blocks
is decided by it.
MR. MIZNER'S SON.

father, Dr. Mizner said:
" I entirely discredit the published reports

"The story about his hiding In a closet Is
sheer fabrication. There Is not a single

six months there and know the place thor

houses there. It is not the custom.

greatly. 1 know these Indian servants, li

father. She is the wife of Dr. Beugochir
and lives diagonally across from the lega

suppose her to be a woman who would bo

GOLDEN GATE FAIR.
The Most Interesting - Trot of
Prince B Proves a Game Stayer— Five Heats
Trotted to a Postponement— Lyaetta
and ta.y Walla Win.
Yesterday's programme of trotting races
at the Oakland track, given by the Golden
Gate Fair Association, attracted but a small
attendance. Of the tbreo events set for de
cision the first two were won in processional
style by the two strong favorites, Lynette
and Lady Wells, who greatly outclassed their
company. The third race, however— a spe
cial lor a lower class of horses— proved most
interesting and amply repaid those who
. waited to the late hour at which the last
but not the decisive beat was trotted. A
gamer finisher in his class than Prince B
has not been seen for many a day, and de
spite his not having a crack pilot behind
him ho won his last heat against one of the
finest rcinsmeu in the world by sheer pluck.
It was the best contest that has so far been
witnessed on the circuit.

that at all pushed her being Cunutilly, who
was driven out forall that she was worth

AN INTERESTING EVENT.
The last race, a special purse of $500 for
named horses, brought out a field of six,
compost d of Lena 11, Prince B, Bockwood,
Mambrino Boy, Foxey V and Mattie P.
As they were considered pretty closely
classed, the betting was quite lively and the
field was made first choice in the pool-box
for good money at $00 against $30 for Prince
B and $16 for Maiiilirino Boy. On the
fourth score they got the word, with Rock
wood in the lead and Mambrino Boy close
up. They went in this order to the quarter,
when Mambrino Boy took command and
was first at the half and three-quarters,
Bockwood and Lena H close np. A spirited
brush up the stretch resulted in Lena II
winning by a length from Bockwood, with
the Boy third. The others made no vehe
ment efforts to distinguish themselves and
were evidently kept in reserve fur the wind
up, except Foxey V, who was distanced.
The time was fair for the class, 2:29%. For
the second heat the field was made lavorite
at $40 to $30 for Lena, and $13 for Prince.
No lime was lost in effecting a start with
Lena and Bockwood in the front. They
went in this order all the way into the
stretch, where Mattie P cut loose and won
handily by two lengths from Lena. Bock
wood, who broke repeatedly, coining home
third. Time, 2:31. Mnttle's "lever win
made her a hot first choice at $40 against $10
for Lena II and $10 for the field for the third
heat, it took six coiue-ups to get them off
with Mattie in the lead. So far Prince B,
a powerful big buckskin gelding had taken
it very easy, not moving for either of the
previous bents, and when he broke disas
trously at the first turn and fell back some
dozen lengths, he looked out of the race.
He came very fast, however, as soon as he
fettled and was second to Mattie at the quar
ter and half. Then Bockwood took sec
ond place and they entered the stretch in one
two-three order. The very hottest kind of a
drive betwe-u the thiee took place to the
wire. Prince, amid great excitement, gutting
there first by a head from Mattie, with Bock
wood third. Tline,2._fi%' ___,_<
As soon as it was known that Mattie would
have the benefit of Johnny Goldsmith's
guidance she was made favorite again at,
S'iO against Prince B $15 and the field $<>.
They got the word on the fourth heat with
Mattie P first to the front At the first turn
Prince broke again badly and fell away
back. Goldsmith sent Mattie along at a
lively clip, and keeping her hard at it, won
the heat by two lengths from the Prince, who
was cleverly nursed by his driver and
brought very fast up the stretch. Lena H
was third, two lengths behind the Prince.
Time, 2:31. .--.-. -?- _-.*_, -
GAME TO THE CORE.
It now looked as if Mattie P could not
lose, and lots of money went into the box on
her at $50 against S'.'O for the field. It was
getting dark and laic and tliey were sent off
in a hurry on the second score. Mattie P
was driven from the word go, and piloted
her field to the turn by a length. Then
Prince broke again badly and fell back to
last place. At the quarter Mattie led by six
lengths, ckwuod second. Prince came up
fas! and was second at the half, but still six
lengths behind the leader. He fell back
round the turn and Bockwood took second
position. Into the stretch it was Mattie by
eight lengths from Bockwood, be fourbctter
than Prince. Goldsmith urged Mattie for
every ounce she was worth, and at the draw
bridge she looked a sure winner, but sud
denly the big buckskin came from the
rear like a whirlwind and going at
apparently a2O gait. He caught the mare
, only a few feet from the wire, and, despite
every art of Goldsmith, just snatched the
heat and race out of the fire by a bead
amidst loud applause. Lena 11 was third.
Time, 2:33. It being too late to decide the
race then, it was postponed until 1 o'clock
to-day. As Rockwood and Mambrino Boy
did not win a heat, they will be no further
factors in the finish, which is now left to
Prince B, Mattie P and Lena H.

fTOS-I-N AND MICE.
The reason why a woman Is afraid of a
mouse is a profound mystery— indeed, it has
never been very clearly proven that she is.
But some women are constantly in such a
nervous, irritable condition that the slightest
thing annoys and startles them. The cause of
this unfortunate state of affairs is usually
some functional derangement; some distress-
ing- or painful irregularity, some derange-
ment or peculiar weakness Incident to her
sex ; or, it may be due to Inflammation, ul-
ceration or displacement, of some of the
pelvic viscera, or to other organic lesinna
peculiar to her sex. From whichever cause
ft may arise. Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescrip-
tion is a positive remedy, so certain in its
curative results that its manufacturers sell
it. through druggists, under a guarantee of
its giving satisfaction in every case, or
money paid for it will be promptly re-
funded. As a soothing and strengthening
nervine, '* Favorite Prescription" is une-
aualed and is invaluable in allaying and sub-
