A Knocking Scandal Disclosed
in San Francisco.
Children Starved to Death In a
Foundling Asylum.
■an Bernardino Justice*' and Consta
bles' Fees Cut B-own— Governor
Pennoynr'a Latest Freak—
Other Coast New*.
By the Associated Press.
Ban Francisco, Oct. 9. —A shocking
scandal has been caused here by the
coroner's investigation of the San Fran
cisco foundling asylum, where 33 babes
died within tbe past six weeks. The
place was closed Thusedsy last, and 24
foundlings given into the custody of the
Catholic infant shelter. The coroner
ascertained that 33 waifs died of lack oi
nutrition, inattention and the scourge
pemphigus. The Daughters of the Good
Shepherd publicly branded the asylum
a "slaughter house for babies." The
sanitary condition of the asylum is very
bad. It is charged that tbe nurses and
attendants occupied sunny rooms up
stairs and kept the babes in damp, d.trk
apartments. Before the coroner today
it wiis developed that dead babies bad
been kept on the premises four days.
Tbe official undertaker of the institu
tion testified that when infants died tbe
attendants put the bodies in a box un
der the front door steps and kept there
like so much garbage until be came to
take them away. He had found three
bodies cast indiscriminately into the
box at one time. He removed them
without notifying the people at the asy
lum. Tbe inquest will be resumed
next Wednesday.
San Bernardino Supervisors Institute a
Much-needed Keform.
San Bebnabdino, Oct. 9.—The board
of supervisors has notified the justices
oi the peace throughout the county that
it will not allow them fees in excess of
$2 oerday and will pay no fees ol jus
tices or constables in cases of prosecu
tion of vagrants, unlesß tbe complaint is
sworn to by some reputable citizen of
the township, other than the officers
thereof. The board of supervisors will
also hereaftar require justices and con
stables to itemize their bills, stating the
names of the case and the crime, and
whether or not a jury was in attendance.
Olams for serving as witnesses mnet give
name of witness and where summoned,
and in claims for mileage, the places
between which travel was necessary
must be shown, and where meale are
furnished the name of parties fur
nishing the same must be given. These
requirements have been found neces
sary because of the large monthly bills
presented by justices and constables
throughout the county, which range
irom $100 to $300 each, and aggregate
thousands of dollars, and have become
an enormous expense to the county.
Sttps Taken to Have Ite Affairs Settled
In the Courts.
Santa Ana, Oct. 9. —A step was taken
today that ia likely to throw into the
conrta the liquidation of the affaire of
tbe Anaheim bank. Since the bank
closed for the aecond time, liquidation
haa been conducted by Plez Jares,
former president, with the consent of
tbe depositors. Today R. S. Scale, a
depositor, brought an attachment enit
for $1200. This will probably throw the
whole thing into the courts, unless
Scale drops hia suit. The result of
throwing tbe liquidation into the courts
will be to invalidate much that ha
been done in the way of settlement.
Since September 9th the deposits are
$110,000. An investigation of the as
sets by a committee of depositors es
timates tbe assets at $101,000, but a
shrinkage in this is already shown.
The failure is largely dne to large in
vestments in Mexico and land in Ne
vada and elsewhere.
The Janltress of a Kindergarten Mur
dered by Her Husband.
San Francisco, Oct. 9. — A moet
shocking tragedy occurred this morn
ing in the Felix Adler free kindergarten
shortly after 8 o'clock. Mrs. Sarah
Collins wae horribly gashed with a knife
and an hour later expired at tbe
receiving hospital. Mrs. Collins
was tbe janitrees of the building.
When the principal and teachers arrived
this morning the unfortunate woman
was found dying on tbe schoolhouse
steps. Near by was a knife with which
the tragedy was committed. Her hus
band, Patrick Collins, iB suspected of
the murder, as be has tried to kill her
before. He wae arrested tonight.
Be Will Not Uelp to Launch the Bat
tleship Orogon.
Portland, Ore., Oct. o.—Governor
Pennoyer, when consulted today by the
mayors of Portland and Astoria about
tbe programme ior visiting San Fran
cisco to witness the launch of tbe bat
tleship Oregon and tbe purchase of a
testimonial for tbe ship, declined to
have anything to do with the ceremo
nies. He is reported to have said that
he did not approve of wasting so much
money on tbe navy, as be did not be
lieve tbe country would ever need it.
For a testimonial nothing could be
more appropriate, be thought, than a
Bilver service, especially now that silver
ie so cheap.

tion of California Miners' association

Captain P. Janatsh, not by

Four More victim* Added to th* Long
Yuma, Arii., Oot. 9.—Word haa been
received here that an Indian herding
cattle 100 miles above Yuma bad found
the body of an American a few miles
west of Threnberg. From the descrip
tion given it is believed to be that of
Conrad Davids, who left here on a pros
pecting trip about four months ago
with J. W. Baker. They were from
Clifton, Ariz. They camped about 20
miles west of the Colorado river, and
while prospecting became separated.
Baker followed Davids' trucks for three
days, but was unsuccessful in his search.
His remains were found about 15 miles
from where Baker gave up the search
when the traces disappeared. Davids'
watch and $33 in money were found in
his pockets. The remains were buried
where they were found.
A few days ago Loreto Villa, in charge
of tbe cattle berda of the Allison Bros.,
aiong the Cocopah mountains, left Black
Butte for Caiupo, Cal. Wednesday,
last, bis mule returned to camp without
him. A search was instituted, which
resulted in finding tracke which showed
that he had got off hia mule
to water him at a spring,
when tbe mule, which waa a bad
one, got away and ran home, a distance
of 40 miles. Villa tried to follow, and
when he bad gone about half way, wan
dered oil' into tbe eand hills, where he
threw away his shoes and where his
tracks were obliterated by tbe winds.
The tracke of two other men were also
found on the same sand hills. Tbey are
supposed to be those of two prospectors
named Ross and Williams. These add
three more names to the desert's dead,
and these perished in eight ot tbe spot
where the Breedloves were found dead
more than a year ago.

Two Satisfactory Fights at the Coney
island Club.
Coney Island Athletic Club, Oct.
9. —Tbere were two fuihta here this
evening, aud an audience of 4000 people
at tbe conclusion pronounced them
selves satisfied.
There was a preliminary 10-round
bout between Charlie Kramer and Jim
Sullivan, local bruisers, which after a
hammer and tongs contest, resulted in
a draw.
But tbe star attraction was a go for
blood between Horace Leeds and Billy
Ernst. They fonght at 133 pounda and
put up a pretty, though one-sided ex
hibition. Ernst was clearly outclassed
but was game. Eight rounds ended tbe
agony. A straight one on Ernst's heart
put an end to his pugilistic aspirations
and him to sleep.
The French Commissioner of Vltlcul

San Francisco, Oct. 9. —Francois Gos,

Our Other Self.
Each of us has two selves, tho higher
and the lower. When God seems out of
reach, as is often the case, and our pray
ers return to us heavier and sadder than
when thoy left our lips, it is a good
plan to commune with that alter ego
which is a shade nearer the divine, that
part which longs to help and to over
come, but is held down by the inrrrmi
!ies of tho lower uaturt. Ask it for
strength and instruction, and by so do
ng help the whole man. God is so often
found in such ways.— Ameri

British Coal Famine.
By the Associated Press.
London, Oct. f».—The Chronicle's cor
respondent at Taris says the unexpected
resignation of tieneral Mathelin, com
mander of the Fifteenth army corpß,
who, in the ordinary omrse, wonld have
taken command of the French campaign
against Italy, has caused a painful sen
sation in government and army circles.
This feeling, the correspondent Bays,
has been increased by a telegram from
Marseilles to tho Journal, which tele
gram the authorities oaused to be sup
pressed, stating in higher military circles
no surprise wonld be felt if the Italian
troops should pass the frontier tomor
row. The telegram also said, General
Mathelin, owing to the condition of his
health, did not feel equal to the task
with which be would be confronted if
the Alpine outpost was doubled. It
says further that the attitude of the offi
cers and men of the army towards Italy
has become so aggressive that even Ger
many is counselling calmness and pru
dence. Tbe correpondent adds* that
probably tbe reports of anti-Italian feel
ing are somewhat exaggerated, but he
says it is difficult to imagine greater an
pleasantry, short of positive hostilities,
than now exists between France a .id
Italy. General Vaulgrenant will succeed
General Mathelin.
More Firing on the Forts—Reinforce
ments for tho Kobelfl.
Rio de Janeiro, Oct. 9. —The insur

forts today, and there was also some
tiring on the other sldeopposite the city.
It is believed tbe insurgents will attempt
to capture the Estralla powder maga
zine, bat the government will blow the
magazine up if it seems in danger of
capture. There is no truth in tbe report
that the foreign war ships are landing
sailors to protect foreign subjecte. Tbe
insurgent admiral has issued a mani
festo disclaiming any intention of bom
barding the city.
New York, Oct. 9.—The Herald's
Montevideo dispatches say: Dispatches

erable quantity of muuitions of war and
provisions was taken along. Later dis
patches Bay abe haa on board some ar

Worse than Mrs. Montague.
London, Oct. 9. —The hearing of the
case of Constance Helen Phelan and
husband, charged with extreme cruelty
to 2-year-old children in tbeir home iv
Cheater, reveals a story iv many respects
worße than tbat brought out in the cele
brated Montague case. The society for
prevention of cruelty to children has
charge of the prosecution of tbe case.
After testimony was taken the prisoners

Coal and Paper Famines.
London, Oct. 9. —One of the largest
paper mills in the kingdom has closed
its doors, owing to a lack of coal. Many
other mills are upon tbe point of simi

The Whistling Tree.
A species of acacia, which grows very
abundantly in Nubia-and the Soudan, is
also called the "whistling tree - ' by the
natives. Its Fhoots aro frequently, by
the agency of the larvae of insects, dis

a circular hole in tho side of this swell

wind, becomes a musical instrument
nearly equal in sonnd to a sweet toned
flute. —New York Telegram.

The Moon aa We See It.
Did you ever stop to consider the fact
that tho inhabitants of this earth have
never Been but ono sido of the moon, and
to inquiro tho reasons why such ia the
case? The explanation is this: Tho moon
makes one revolution on her axis in the
same period of time that she takes up in
revolving once around the earth, thus
the same geographical region of the lunar
surface is always toward us. As one ex
planstiou usually calls for another, it
may not be out of place to mention the
fact that the reasons tho two motions of
the moon above referred to so nearly
coincide are these:
The moon is not a true globe, but is
very elliptical in form. It did not in all
probabilities orginally start on its axial
rotation with precisely the same velocity
■with which it moved around the earth,
but tho very best asrroriomers say that
the two motions wero not fur apart in
the start. Assuming that the moon was
semi-liquid or at least soft in those re
mote days, the earth's attraction caused
the lunar surface to elongate, and in tho
untold ages which followed its axial ro
tation, owing to tho attractive influence
of both the earth and tho sun, was Blade
to correspond with its orbital movement
around tho earth.—St. Louis Republic.
