It was announced by the executive com
nii:tee of the Midwinter Fair on Tuesday
that Irving M. Scott had been selected as
president of the day. The first and only
intimation Mr. Scott received of tho ap
pointment was the announcement in the
niorninu papers. The committee amended
its action yesterday by naming R. P. Ham
mond as president of the day, and Mr.
Scott has b^en asked to deliver an oration.
J3rief time has been allowed most of the
speakers for preparation, but they are
making tbe most of the brief interval at
their disposal.

complete. Rev. John 'leinptiill, D.D..

Rabbi Voorsanger will pronounce the
benediction. Addresses will be given by

the day Mrs. Charles Freeman Johnson,

CITY ADVANCEMENT.
The Work of the Federated lmprove-
ment Clubs.
The Federated Improvement club 3 met
last night.
It was stated in the report nf the exeou
-1 tive committee that the Fourth-street
bridge had not in all respects been eon
! structed according to pians and speclfica
i tione, as one abutment Is six feet inside
' the wharf and is not in line with :hestreet,
j nor is the abutment plumb. In justice to
i tbe taxpayers it should not be accepted
I unless fully up to ooniract.
The scarcity of gas lamps in the district
from Guerrero to Market and between
j Fourteenth and Seventeenth streets was
' discount, and a committee, consisting of
E. B. Carr, W. A. C. Smith and A.
-Wiuttnte. was appointed to secure lights
for that neighborhood.
A promise was made by the Fire Com
missioners that the fire engine company
| for Eureka and Noe valleys would be in
; commission by next December.
It w,is stated by several delegates that
the >~oe Valley residents complain of an
insufficient water pressure in their locality
and that often the water is not obtainable
for several hours during the day. A com
mittee will visit the Supervisors aud en
deavor to K"t them to take thu matter in
hand, as the danger of bein? without
water should a fire occur was said to be
great.
A committee of seven was appointed to
confer with the aiithoriticsand s?e if some
thing could not be 'ion* by the city or the
property-owneri holding frontage on
macadamized streets to have them watered
and sprinkled daily.

and a special routp has been laid nut and
fer tain hou:s defined when they can be
transported. Tne expediting of the eon-
of the Fourth-street bridge has.
at the request of Potrero citizens, been ai!
vanepd. The security of life and property
has been added ;o by an increase of elec

THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 1895
A CHESS REVIVAL.
Rendezvous of the Local
Crack Players.
MOST PLAYERS WEAR BEARDS
Scene in the Chessroom at Mechan
ics' Institute— Significant Facts
About the Players.
There Is a dense cloud of tobacco smoke.
There is a big crowd of well-dressed men,
men not so well dressed and shabbily
dressed men. There are chairs and tables
and books.
When your eyes hnve been accustomed
to the rather opaque atmosphere you see
that the men, the chairs, the tables, the
books are arranged with some regard to
order and regularity. Enough, at all
events, to bespeak the original presence
in the room of an orderly and designing
mind.
It Is the chessroom of the Mechanics'
Institute that you are viewing. The books
Mr. Waphburn.
are on shelves on three of the four walls
which inclose all this tobacco smoke aud
chairs and tables and men.
The men are mostly divided into quartets.
So are the chain, and there are not lack
ing evidences that once— early in the morn-
Inc fnr instance— the chairs were so ar
ranged around the chess-tables that regu
lar passageways or aisles were left lv
twecii the quartets running the entire
length of the long room.
You have to wind iv and out consider
ably aud tread your way carefully to go
from one end of th» room to the o<hf>r. It
is yet early in the afternoon, but the
chess-players have be» n at their work so
long that the day is < 1 ! for them aud the
room coi respond! ncly disorderly.
Recently there h»s h»en a reawakening
of local interest :n the abstruse game of
I'iie^s. Lascar, the champion, is coining
out here, nna the consequent revival is
vigorous and healthy.
This is the only chessioom in the city.
That is why it is crowded. It you itay a
whole day Id this room you will *e« all
the chess-players in San Francisco before
you leave. Go there at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon and you will see most of them
in half an hour.
They are a strange lot of mortal*. Silent
as so many sphinxes they are. A season
of silent prayer in a Methodist church U
abnut tin? only thing that will compare at
all favorably with the chessroom cf tbe
Mei'hnniC".' Institute.
Not a word is spoken. For long minutes
not a sound is heard. Then the click of a
bishop is heard on the hart table. Then
another click. Then a silence.
••Checkmate." is whispered lowly in a
suppressed voice, choking with self
absorption and material unconsciousness.
Once in a long time two playets arise
and go out. Immediately their places are
Mr. Orkl9y: "You go there."
filled by two men who have been merely
spectators. This makes a little noi-e, re
lieves Boiiiewl:at the qui^t monotony tlmt
pervades the big room. Opcii«k>nally. too,
akineor a pawn is shoved off the board
and strikes with an awful din on the hard
floor. In an ordinary crowd such slight
disturbances as these would scarcely be
noticed. In this chnssroom they punctu
ate the stillness to the point of startling
one almost.
If you go early in the morning you will
find only two men, on an average, at each
table, for r«nlv a conple. you know, can
play at one table. But in the afternoon
there is not a game that ha> not a! least
two spectators and many have more.
Though you know little about the game,
you can. at this hour, readily iliitinguish
the tables at which the crack players are
at work. You Imvp only to watch the
crowd. Wl.ero there are six, eicrhtora
dozen spectators there a brilliant game is
in progress, and there you will find snme
couplu out of the dozen or more crack
ctipsftmen in town.
At none of the tables will you find Joe
Redding these days — though for years he
Mr. Allen.
was the local champion— for he has given
up the fascinating game now for the still
more entrancing one of Hip law.
You will probably find Dr. Walter Love
prove, who took the lust championship
chess eatno in this city, at one of the tables
where the group of spectators is largest.
And Dr. l>njuniu Marshall. The doctor
lias retired from the practice of medicine
and juts taken a hearty interest in the
practice of chess. He finds it even more
absorbing than the game of human life
and health.
. A. .V. Man sou, A. Heinemann, Captain
Scott— you will find either or all of aem
at some of the tables where the crowd is
tho largest or it will be a Cold day for chess
at the Mechanics' Institute.
Miller, Hendricks, Howe, Walsteln.
Levy— these complete, or nearly C"mpl<-te.
the list of players who can give you a
couple of knighta aud all the rawns and
then beat you in a few moves.
These men are permanent fixtures in the
chessroom. They are more than that.
They are players of such recognized ability
that their name* ate known, and well
known. In the literature cf chess tluough
"iit the United States and in Europe.
Does Dr. Marshall visit New York? H»
has only to make himself known at the
Manhattan Chess Club to be greeted as a
brother.
Does Dr. Lovesrove journey to Europe?
At Paris, at London, at Berlin there are
sumptuously appointed clubhouses and
intellectual club members waiting to wel
come liiui as an honored guest.
Truly, there is no game like chess. Its
origin is as old as that of history. The
Hindoos have it that the game originated
in the fertile brain of an astronomer who
flourished several thousand years ago and
was possessed of supernatural knowledge
and acnteness.
The Greeks claimed chess as the inven
tion of Palameties, who employed it to be
guile tho tedium of the siege of Troy.
But the Arab legend is more likely. It
is that chess wi«s first devised for the in
struction of a young despot by his tutor, a
learned Brahmin, who sought thus to
teach the youth how a king was dependent
on his subjects for safety.
Probably all of these are wrong, but it
matters not. No other game is so absorb
ing as that of chess. No other game ex
hausts the gray matter of its devotees at
such an alarming rate as does chess.
If you look but casually at the face? of
the players iv this big room you caSi judge
the intellectual character of their occupa
tion. There are strong fnces here. Some
of them are stronger than the others, hut
none are weak. Brains are the chief re
quisite lor chess. You will not find low
foreheads nor narrow chins in this room.
At least you ought not to find them here,
and if you do the chances are that you
have found a physiognomical exception.
That is fi.r more likely than that you will
find a weak mentality in this room.
And mark this fact: three-fourths or
more of all the. players here are bearded
men. Does the beard signify mental
strength or intellectuality? Mark this,
too: you will not find one clean-shaven
face in all the room. One or two youths
you may rind who go to learn chess, but no
clean-shaven men. Is this a significant
fact or a mere coincidence?
There is another fact worth noting
abitiit the faces in this big chessroom.
They are almost to a man tne faces oi
Mr. Miller.
Americans, so far. at leaßt. as may be
judged from a mere exterior acquaintance.
All day long they sit there a:id i lay and
play and play, and iiev-r speak througn
out It all, save to 'Vhecfe" or to "('heck
mate." Do they get tired <>f it? Never.
Aie they dull ar.d heavy? Not in the
least; on the rontrarv, tht-y are intensely
excited, and when the day's work is over
as much exhausted as ordinary folks are
after ten hours of remunerative toll.
It is not play. It is work. It is absorb
ing work, that demands the whole indi
vidual as much a* even literary composi
tion does. Ami it neiuan is all one's time
to nttain even a local prominence in the
game, sr.y those who ought to know. And
after a long lifetime spent iv chess
playing tho devotee dies when he has
readied the point where he is beginning tn
realize how little he knows of the great
game.
This is chesi. These are its devotees In
San Francisco.
A MAIMED BURGLAR.
He Confesses to Housebreaking and
Robbery.
A young man, from whose right hand
the fingcMs had recently been cv', was ar
rested iast nigut by Detectives Bee and
Harper for burglary. The maimed pris
oner entered the house of Mr?. P. J. Mar
fee, 617 Bryant street, at 2 o'clock yestcr
dnv morning and stole wearing apparel
and jewelry valued at $1000. He was dis
posing of his plunder in a pawnshop when
the detectives found him. They had re
ceived a description of him from people
who had seen loitering in the vicinity of
Mrs. Marfee's residence.
The prisoner, whose name is Kdward
Dwver, co& fort led his guilt and said that
he had been forced to become a burglar be- i
cause no one would givo him employment. I
He said tnat his ting«*rs were cut off a few
weeks ago in a mill in wt)tcb%e was at the
time employed, but thU part of his story is
not believed by the police.
Distribution of Bread.
Mr. T. AlthofY has purchased the cafe at
1306 Market street and he says them are
hundreds of loaves of bread in the place
that he cannot use which he wilidistribute
to any Door persona applying lor them
after S o'clock this mornincr.
STIPATION,
/
Afflicts half the American people yet there Is
only one preparation of Sars&parlila that acts on
the bowels and reaches this important trouble,
and that is Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla. It re-
lieves it in 24 hours, and an occasional dose pre-
vents return. We refer, by permission, toC. E.
Elkington, 125 Locust Avenue, San Francisco; J.
H. Drown, Petaluma, Cal.; H. 8. Winn, Geary
Court, 8.F., end hundreds of others who have
used it in constipation. One letter is a sample
of hundreds. Elkington, writes: " I have been
for years subject to bilious headaches and consti-
pation. Ilavo been bo bad for a year back have
had to take a physic every other right or else I
would have a headache.' One bottle of J. V. 8.,
put me in splendid shape. It positively control*
constipation." V *'- '
