San Francisco, Nov. 39. The ferry
boats San Rafael and Sausallto col
lided in the bay in a dense fag tonight.
The San Rafael was sunk. It is thought
that a number of lives have been lost.
The place cf the collision was off Alca
traz island.
The report as to the number of lives
lost is very conflicting and exaggerat
ed. The estimate running as high as
fifty. The San Rafael was on the way
from the city to San Rafael and had, it
is estimated from 150 to iOO passengers.
The San Rafael was struck amidships,
sinking almost immediately. Large
numbers of passengers were rescued by
ropes from Alcatraz island.
Captain McKenzie of the San Rafael
sent his ship along under a slow bell.
He was somewhere near Alcatraz island
when the Sausallto, coming from Sau
salito to this city, crashed into her.
There were but few passengers on the
Sausalito. When It was seen that the
Sausallto was not badly hurt she stood

The news of the disaster did not

was intense excitement at the
opera house, where an immense crowd
was listening to Calve, in "Carmen."
Majiy people left the house and rushed
to the newspaper offices to obtain in

Francisco and on the bay than tonight.
Is was a day and night of anxiety. In
the early hours the fog came up "as
thick as mush." Tonight it was almost
impossible to see a boat's length. The
steam schooner Arctic ran down the
French bark Kdmond Rostand in the
early morning ho irs, while the Enclnal

Many vessels had narrow escapes. Most
of the ferry steamer.? escaped, but one

Contents of Lauver's Hay Barn are
Nightly Inventoried.
. There was the usual grist in the police
court yesterday, though it is to be
noted that the hobo percentage is in
creasing with every report' of lower
temperature elsewhere..
The first case was disposed of quick
ly, for Young Tim, a Chinaman arrest
ed on a m.ndemeannr charge, had put
un wat Is known as a bond for ap
pearance. It proved, though, to be, as
usual, a bond for non-appearance. It
only took Recorder Jobs a minute to
declare It "forfeited. Another case of
drunk and disorderly was passed over
till Monday at the reouest of the de
fendant, as he said he proposed to fight
it and wanted time to secure witnesses.
Then came the hobo list. There were
three of them, and they all had good
stories to tell. One of them is itn
artisan who has a good prospect for
employment and was given till Monday
afternoon to secure a Job. The other
two men, Isaac White and George
Thompson, claimed to be miners en
route from Jerome to Bisbee. but they
failed to impress the court with their
worthiness and were sent below for ten
and twenty days respectively.
None of
the three semed to be bad men and
there was no charge against them ex
cept that they were broke and found
sleeping in Lauver's hay barn. But that
is cnnuirh. Lauver's hav barn has
a(.njevej a national reputation as a
refuse for tramps, and it Is the opinion
of the officers that at the last national

to make them think they were very
slow if they could not make money
earn more than 8 or 10 per cent a year.
In a letter signed L. T. Lewis, the Sun
set Mining company, puts before the
bankers a most glittering offer. The
letter reads like this:
"Dear Sir: The making of money is
primarily a question of opportunity. I
can offer you an opportunity to make
an income of $8,000 a month. The

rate of dividends, will earn you $80 per
"I shall be glad to furnish you with
every Information and hope you will
give this offer the consideration It de
serves. "Awaiting the favor of your reply, I,
am, very truly yours,
"L. T. LEWIS."
With this letter were some circulars
which failed to tell anything about the
company, not even the names of Its
officers. They claimed, however, that
the company owns 220 acres of mineral
land near Orovllle. Cal.. which have
paid S per cent a month since 1893. It
was also announced that the company

business in the United States.
The head of the company Is a. W.
Rumble of San Francisco, who figures
among its ofticeis as secretary. Rumble
got hold of what was formerly the Or
ange Mining company, about eighteen
months ago and reorganized It as the
Sunset Mining company. It was cap
italized at $10,000,000. and from the
start investors were promised 2 per
cent a month. Of the $10,000,000 worth
of stock It Is said that about $20,000
has been sold, and a dispatch from
San Francisco says the company is
paying out about $000 a month to
There is nothing to cause any one to
believe that these payments are made
out of any earnings from any gold
mine. Mr. Rumble has been In several
get-rich-quick schemes In the past
which brought him considerable noto
riety. He figured in the San Francisco
police courts some years ago as an ex
pert on the ''clock game."
L. T. Lewis, the eastern agent of the
company, has desk room in an orficc
at No. 179 Market street. Newark. N.
J. He is little known in Newark, how
ever, as he has lived there but a few
weeks. He says that previous to this
time he had been selling oil stock in
New England. Mr. Lewis says:
"I have only been with this company
a few weeks, and I don't know much
about It. I never saw Mr. Rumble, and
don't know anything about him. I
made my arrangements all by mail,
and took Mr. Rumble's word for what
he told me. I never saw the company's
property, and know nothing about it.
I am going to make some Investiga
tions, however. Mr. Hayden Whitney
of Philadelphia got me Into it. I think
he could tell you something about the
company. The president Is Mrs. K. E.
Allington of Rochester, N. Y. I do not
know anything about her."
"I sent letters to bankers whose
names I selected from the bankers' di
rectory," he continued, "but I did not
send out many. It was my own Idea,
and I have received only one Inquiry in
When asked If he thought there were
any bank cashiers who would believe
that stock paying 24 per cent a year
would be peddled at such a liberal
commission If It was a legitimate prop
osition Mr. Lewis admitted that some
might be suspicious. "I believe," said
he, "the company has only been earn
ing the 2 per cent a month that is paid
out, and that It Is now necessary to sell
some stock to buy machinery. If the
thing turned out all right I intended to
make a trip out there to Investigate It."
In Justification of the use of the
name of Edward Hill of the Leechburg
(Pa.) Banking company In his letter
Mr. Lewis produced a letter from Mr.
Hill in which he said he had a small
amount of stock of the company on
which he had been paid 2 per cent a
month. He also stated that this was
ail he knew about the concern and
added that If he was convinced that it
was all right he would Invest more.
Mr. Lewis says he does not Intend to
, 8end any more circulars to the banks
at Present, and notwithstanding the
splendid dividends of 24 per cent a year
it is not probable that there will be a
great rush of country bankers to buy
the $10,000,000 worth of stock of tun

Farmers from Indiana Decide to Join

Indianapolis, Nov. 30. Three weeks

City.- near Kenosha. Wis., to inquire
into the methods of government and
decide as to the advisability of becom

of the matters into which they inquir

fertility of the soil and the peculiar

was received with enthusiasm, and

The Arizona Situation Is Defi
nitely Settled
There Will Hot be "Immeliately" a
Successor to Governor Murphy.
An Announcement Emanating
From the White House.
Washington. D. C, 30. (Special to the
Republican.) The fight for the re
moval of Governor Murphy Is confined
to his personal enemies In Arizona.
There is no echo of it in Washington.
No charges have been filed and It Is
the intention of the administration to
have him serve out his term. ,
Governor Murphy's commission Is
dated to expire December 14. 1902. This
commission is held to be an original ap
pointment and has nothing to do with
previous commissions or the term of of
fice of the men who held them.
The recent fight against Governor
Murphy Is looked upon by the govern
ment officials here as a closed incident
only to be revived in the case of future
development. As the governor does not
desire a reappointment the president
wlU find some other man and Col. Bro
die probably stands the best chance at
the end of Murphy's term though the
matter Is far from being definitely dis
posed of.
A few days ago several of the dem
ocratic papers of the territory in -oti-
cert repeated the story which was orig
inated some time ago, to the effect that
Governor Murphy's successor had been
selected, that a "bushel basket full of
charges" had been filed against the
governor, and that the new appointment
would soon be made. etc. The Los An
geles Times also had a special tele
gram from Washington which stated
that the governor's successor had been
named, and the Times correspondent
volunteered a lot of statements about
Arizona politics which betrayed his Ig
norance of the situation as well as the
fact that the dispatch was inspired by
Arizona politicians with axes badly
in need of grinding. The foregoing dis
patch to The Republican should set at
rest any doubts that the people of the
territory may have concerning the gov
ernorship. The author of the dlspatufl
Is Mr. J. D. Whelpley, the famous
Washington correspondent, whose in
tegrity and reliability put the seal of
truth upon everything he writes. No
correspondent at the capital is on a
better footing with the administration,
and few have such excellent opportun
ities for ascertaininfi facts "from the
inside." He has the confidence of the
highest officials tn the government, be
cause of his respectability and his well
earned reputation for always telling
the truth.
Chinese Slave Women Removed in
Anticipation of Trouble-
San Francisco. Nov. 30. The post
says: "In anticipation of an open war
that it is feared may be started any
moment now in the Chinese quarters,
doubtless as a result of the two mur
ders and two assaults to kill night be
fore last, all the slave women of China
town were taken from their quarters
by their keepers and owners last night
and kept in secret places until daylight
this mornlnc;.
This was done for. the reason that
word had been passed notifying such
brothel keepers and slave drivers that
the warring Tongs were to exact the
death of a woman because of some
strange edict that has gone out. The
night was passed without murder being
committed, so far as known. The
police guard was Increased and de
tective Gibson was very active.
Although the murdering of the wo
men was avoided momentarily, it is ex
pect 3d now that shooting may be
started at the first favorable oppor
tunity, and for this reason Chinatown
may be said to be in a state of terror.
It is especially feared that pistols mny

and the police are doubly vigilant
watching the movements of all turbu
lent and warlike celestinls.
San Francisco. Nov. ,S0. Contrary to
the belief which has been rather ex
tensively expressed here and else
where, a majority of the merchants of
San Francisco favor an extension of
the existing Chinese exclusion act.
This was made manifest by a poll of
the Merchants' Assocatlon. Two-thirds
of those answering the questions sub
mitted replied that they favored extension.

"That the tendency must be to under

bodies of American citizens, and may
well be deemed a serious menace to the
moral and political welfare of the

agricultural, which practically enjoy
no protection, for the reason that their
products are exported and because,
whether or not duties be levied in their

Chicago, Nov. 39. The Chicago House

The Array Defeated the
Navy Yesterday
The Most Interested Spectator, Ac

cers of the Army and Navy A
Phenomenal Ban by a West Point
Boy for One Hundred and Five
Philadelphia. Nov. 30. Probably the
most distinguished gathering that ever
witnessed a football game In this coun
try and admittedly the greatest crowd
that ever entered the gates of Franklin
Field saw Westpoint defeat Annapolis
this afternoon by a score of 11 to 5.
From the moment President Roose
venlt and party entered the great am
pitheatre until a half hour after the
time keeper had blown his whistle an
nouncing a cessation of hostilities,
there was a continuous uproar, such
probably as never had taken place in
any football field In the country.
Even the president and several mem
bers of his cabinet, worked up to a
nervous pitch by excitement left their
seats in the private box. which had
been set apart for their occupation and
took positions on the side lines and
benches which usually are used for
substitute players and coaches. There
was not a seat unoccupied and a hun
dred persons stood around the field
throughout the entire game.
Tho day broke cloudy and threaten
ing, but Just about the time the pres
idential train pulled Into the city the
si-n broke through the clouds, as
though a welcome to the distinguished
guests. The train bearing the presi
dent and members of the cabinet reach
ed the south street station a few min
utes after 1 o'clock. Lunch was serv
ed on the private dining car and the
party at 1:45 started for Franklin field.
Two lines of policemen had ben drawn
up on the sidewalk and the president
and party marched through the en-i
trance to the grounds under escort.
First came the president with" Provost
Harrison on his right, and Lieutenant
Commander Cowles on his left. Thuy
were followed closely by a half dozen
Philadelphia detectives with Chief
Wilkle and other secret service men
selected for the occasion, Secretarv
Long, Secretary Root, Postmaster Gen
eral Smith, Secretary Cortelyou and
Secretary Loeb and many army and
navy officers.
Admiral Dewey had slipped Into the
grounds almost unnoticed and had
taken his Feat tn the navy stand. The
president s appearance was a signal for
a tremendous ofburst of applause,
which continued -.itil he had walked
down the center of the gridiron and
across the field to his seat in the north
The president's silk h-t was on ' his
head scarcely five minutes from tho
time he entered the grounds until he
hau taken his seat, so continuous was
the ovation.
Hardly had the president's party tak
en u.eir seats before the navy team
came upon the field from the west en
trance. The followers of the Annapo
lis eleven made the stands shake with
cheers. The blue and orange flags
seemed to be floating from all sections
of the field. Six minutes later the West
Point lads trotted out, then the black
and gray of the army was waived dex
trously from the big stand. No time
was consumed in formalities. A coin
was tossed. Captain Nichols of the
navy called the turn correctly. He
chose the west goal with a slight ad
vantage from the wind.
At 2:15 Graves kicked oft. From the
moment the ball was put In play until
the time keeper's whistle blew, there
was no more Interested spectator of the
game than President Roosevelt. The
contest had been In progress less than
ten minutes when he left his seat in
the private box and took a position on
the side line bench.' When Cassldy
