Four Budding Artists and Some
Fair Specimens of Their
San Francisco Promises to Take
a Prominent Place in
Art Work.
Art work has begun in earnest lor the
rear, and all the students in the city are
ausy with brush and pen. The art feeling
s glowing stronger and stronger every
lay, it seems, for the classes are steadily
ncrcasing in size, and the number of pic
tures to be submitted at the spring exhi
sition promises to far exceed those of any
preceding year.
The general opinion seems among the
ilder artists to be that work this year will
je found to be especially good, but there is
10 concealing the fact that there is a woeful
nek of unity among even the students,
nuch less the more advanced artists. |
rhere is no pulling to- -

irtistic welfare of the
local artists. There
has been within the

J. B. Forman of Berkeley, out
on a Good Time, Robbed
and Slain.

Two Ex-Convicts Arrested on
Suspicion of Committing
the Crime.
J. B. Forman, a woolworker, 35 years of
age, was found dead in Cum Cook alley,
Chinatown, by Officer Bakulich at 7:15
o'clock yesterday morning. Investigation
revealed that it was a case of murder, and
"Piggy" Johnson and Billy Madden, who
have done time at Folsom and San Quen
tin, were arrested on suspicion of having
connection with it.
Forman was believed to have been em
ployed by George S. Webb at 2131 Bancroft
way, Berkeley. He came over to San
Francisco on Saturday evening on a "good
time" bent. He visited the tenderloin dis
tricts, Barbary Coast and Chinatown.
While drinking in a saloon on Jackson
street he ran across the men who are now
held on suspicion of having struck him
the blow on the back of the neck which
caused a meningeal hemorrhage of the
brain and spinal cord, from which cause
Forman died.
As an evidence that robbery was the mo
tive of the murder the pockets in the
clothes of the dead man were turned in
side out when the body was found. There
was nothing of value found on his person.
A few cards bearing the addresses of sa
loons and disreputable persons were found
in his pockets, showing that the unfortu
nate man had made the rounds before he
came to his sad and untimely end. The
body was removed to the Morgue and Dr.
Rachael made the autopsy with the results
already stated.
Sergeant Conboy and Detective Bohen
and a number of others went to work on
the case. Conboy, so long and thoroughly
acquainted with the district, soon fell on
the trail of the dead man the night pre
vious and learned that he had for his
drinking companions the ex-convicts,
Johnson and Madden. The three men
were last seen together in Chinatown at a
late hour on Saturday night. Forman
was very drunk. While making the tour
of the saloons he spent money freely, and
: it was this extravagant generosity that
first attracted the attention of tti^crimi
nals, who soon wormed their way into his

company of degraded women in a disrepu
table lodging-house on Jackson street,
near Kearny, and were taken to the new
City Hall Prison.
Cum Cook alley runs off Dunont, between
Jackson and Pacific streets, and is inhab
ited by the gambling and criminal classes
lof Chinese. It is narrow, dark and lonely,
i especially after midnight, when drunken
ness and debauch have staggered home,
| and is well adapted for the waylaying and
, striking down in cold blood of an unsus
| pecting person. There the highbinder is
! seen to come out of his hole like the rat to
bask in the sun: there is found the dens of
the Chinese women of forgotten virtue:
there the opium-smoker hits the pipe and
dreams his rife away.
Frank Johnson, alias "Piggy," is a grad
uate in crime from the old Industrial
School. Then he served two terms in the
House of Correction for petty larceny and
grand larceny. On November 28, 1891, he
was arrested by Detective Cody, along with
•Con Shea, Jimmy Boyd and Elias Flop
boy d, for burglary, and got three years in
Folsom penitentiary. He is now 37 years
of age.
William Madden, alias Ryder, is an all
round "crook." He is 23 years' of age. On
November 19,1886, he received two and a
half years for burglary in the second de
gree, and on September 7, 1889, he re
ceived a similar sentence for burglary.
His last sentence was on September 27,
1892, when he was sent to San Quentin for
two years for burglary.
Standish Webb, son of T. F. Webb,
whose card was found in Forman' s pocket,
states that last summer a man who gave
his name as Benjamin Forman was em
ployed at his father's ranch, about four
miles from Gazelle, Siskiyou County.
About six months ago this man left the
ranch and came down to San Francisco to
look for work. His cousin was a stone
cutter, employed at San Francisco. Noth
ing was heard of Benjamin Forman after
that. While there he claimed to hail from
Ohio. He is a man about 35 years old, of
medium size, as near as young Webb can
recollect. While in Gazelle, where he was
employed for several months, he received
no mail. ________________
She Will Be the Attraction at the Bald
win for This Week— At the
Other Theaters.
Miss Marie Burroughs will be seen to
night in the character in which she made
her first great success, that of Vashti, the
fasting girl in Henry Arthur Jones' drama,
"Judah." It will be presented at the
Baldwin Theater just as it was given when
E. S. Willard carried it successfully
through the Eastern cities. The play
gives Miss Burroughs a wide scope for the
display of her talents, and also Mr. Kel
lcrd. who plays the role made prominent
by Mr. Willard. "Judah" is said to be an
interesting play in many respects. Like
other works of its author, and like the
great run of the plays of to-day, it lays
stress on the moral responsibility of man
and woman, and emphasizes the old but
ever-truthful thought that whatever a
man soweth that shall he also reap.
At the California Theater "A Temper
ance Town" will begin its last week. None
of Mr. Hoyt's comedies of recent years has
been such a glittering success as this.
The Charles Riggs Company, headed by
Miss Rose Stillman, a pretty and capable
actress, will present "The Clemenceau
Case" at the Alcazar Theater this evening.
Miss Stiliman's impersonation of Iza has
been spoken of very highly, and A. C.
Henderson, who plays Pierre, is well
known as a good actor. _ A novelty will be
introduced to San Francisco in conjunction
with the play in the form of a whirlwind
dance, which is performed by the Sisters
O'Brien from the Alhambra, London.
The Orpheum will bring out some new
people to-night. Among • them are Magee
and Crimmins, grotesque comedians, La
Regolancita and her sisters, dancers, and
the brothers Forrest, singing comedians. •
The bill at the Tivoh for this week is
Lecocq's opera "Girofle-Girorla." ' All of
the Tivoli favorites will be seen in the cast.
The burlesque "Pocahontas," produced
by the Marie Rostelle burlesque company,
will be the attraction at the Wigwam.
A double bill will be presented at Stock
well's. "The Black Crook" and "Humpty
Dumpty" and a number of new specialties
will undoubtedly prove a strong attraction.
So great has been the success of "In the
Ranks" at Morosco's Grand Opera-house
that it will be continued for another week.
For . the third time since the opening of
the theater under the present management
a piece will be produced for a fortnight.
Maud Edna 'Hall, the new leading lady,
has made a distinct hit, and the entire
company is doing most excellent work. As
a novelty Company D of the Third Regi
ment will allow its drill corps to appear in
the barracks scene during the remainder of
the performances. „ / '
The Market-Street 'Railway Managers
Thought the Weather Was Bad.
If lovers of music who visit Golden Gate
Park on Sundays to hear Scheel's men
play wish to avoid disappointment in the
future they must see that flags announcing
a concert in the park are flying on the
Market-street cable-cars.
If there are no flags there will be no
, It has become a rule with the street rail
road company to fly flags on the cars, and
in this way musicians learn whether they
are to report at the band stand. Should
the day be cloudy and threatening the rail
road managers decide to keep the flags in
shelter. For some reason yesterday was
regarded by them as too dull and unpleas
ant to tempt crowds to take an outing in
the park and ho band played.
Thousands of people went out to the
park, but were sorely disappointed after
waiting on the benches in front of the mu
sicians shell pavilion. The majority of
the people felt as if they had been drawn
to a fake show and commenced to move
away, but there were many who retained
their seats, hugging the fond hope that
the hour for commencement had been
changed. •""■'; .--:'-
I. C. Cogginsjthe manager of the band,
when seen last" evening, said: "It is too
bad so many people were disappointed, but
it is not the musicians' fault. We got the
usual notice that we were not wanted and
we did not go to the park."
"And this notice was?"
"Why, the railroad company has the
management of the concerts, and for years
the musicians have been notified by flags.
That is, if on concert days they see flags
[Sketched by a " Call " artist.]
with the words "Concert at the Park to
day" on cars of the Market-street Railway
Company, between 10 o'clock in the fore
noon and noon they know that they are to
report at the band "stand. If no such flags
appear then they know that they are not
wanted. No flags were displayed and that
is why the musicians were not at the band
"Why the flags were not put up I do not
know, but suppose it was because the
weather looked threatening."
Brilliant Closing Game of Gae
lic Football at Cen
tral Park.
The Emmets Defeat the Par
nells by Twelve Points
to Six.
The last Gaelic football game of the
season was played in Central Park yester
day afternoon between the Parnells and
Emmets. It attracted an unusually large
number of spectators, who expected to see
a struggle for supremacy, and they were
hot disappointed. ' .
When these teams meet it is a foregone
conclusion that all the tricks in the game
will be brought into play, and the referee
has no sinecure. Yesterday was no ex
ception. Captain Andy Mclnerney of the
San Franciscos was referee, but before the
first half was over he retired, and President
J. Donovan filled the breach. Then the
tricky play was kept in check and the
game was played -and won on its merits.
The Emmets played a more dashing
game than the Parnells and won by a
score of 12 to 6. There were many indi
vidual plays of brilliancy which called
forth the cheers of the spectators. In
this respect D. Sugrue, Captain Palmer and
Maurice Daly of the Emmets and George
Browne, Captain Hurley and Condon of
the Parnells particularly distinguished

The Emmets, after some even play,
started the scoring by D. Sugrue making a
point by a fine kick from the right wing.
Condon promptly followed suit by scoring
a point for the -Parnells. Then the ball
was rushed down the field and out of a
sharp scrimmage D. Sugrue succeeded in
scoring another point. Both sides made
several unsuccessful tries for goal, till Daly,
in one of his rushes, sent the ball straight
between the posts. Horgan caught it just
in the nick of time and swiped it back.:
Casey secured it and made a fine shot,
which was helped along by M. O'Dowd,
who swiped the ball through goal. The
first half closed with seven points for the
Emmets and one point for the Parnells.
In the second half the play was fast and
furious. The Parnells, as usual, assumed
the offensive., but the Emmets were as
eager for business, and soon M. O'Dowd
scored a goal for them, which staggered
the Parnells. D. Sugrue narrowly missed
another goal, and Casey was equally un
fortunate. Then Captain Hurley had a
try at the Emmets' goal, but the shot was
too high. Just about the close Keleher
scored a goal for the Parnells, which left
the Emmets six points ahead.
For the Mexican .Exposition.
Five of the eight gentlemen who have been
appointed by Governor Budd Commissioners to
the Mexican Exposition of Industrial and Fine
Arts, met at the Palace Hotel yesterday after
noon and organized. Colonel A. Andrews of
this city was elected temporary president, H.
Weinstock of Sacramento was chosen temporary
vice-president and E. J. Moleraof this city was

to ask the Legislature for favorable, recom
mendation to the public. The Commission is
to be supported by a percentage of money se
cured from sales of California products at the

La Paloma the Finest Craft
of Her Dimensions on .
the Bay.
Extensive Changes Being Made
In a Number of the
The next new craft to be slipped off the
ways and ushered into the mystical circle
of yachting will be La Paloma, which
is nearing completion at Stone's shipyard,
at Hunters Point, for Messrs. James Gre
holber of Sacramento and C. A. Hoffman
of this city. From an interview with one
of these owners it was gleaned that before
the season opens two other prominent
yachtsmen will buy a quarter interest each
in her.
La Paloma is essentially a cruiser,
being rigged as a schooner, and in every
dimension comfort is considered. The
overall length is 48 feet, with almost a
straight stem (typical of all of Stone's
craft), but the stern has more overhang
than is usual in his boats. Her stern does
not look unlike the stern of the yacht
Clara. The beam is 14 feet 10inches,which
is proportionately good for her length.
She will be a keel boat, carrying three and
! a half tons of outside ballast, with two and
I a half tons inside. This will give her when
| floated a draft of about three feet. The
I bowsprit runs out board fully fifteen feet,
' on which will be carried double headsails.
The cockpit is very large for a craft of her
length, but is well guarded by a high rail.
It is built self-bailing. '
Entering the cabin one is struck by the
way everything aims at the one object of
comfort. The highest point of head room
is reached in the main saloon, which is 6
feet 4 inches, while in the galley there is
at least .> feet. On the port side forward
will be the lavatory, next to which there
will be a 7J_?-foot stateroom, which opens
into the main saloon. On the starboard
side forward will be the galley, next to
which is another 7%-foot stateroom, also
opening into the main saloon. Forward
of both the lavatory and the galley will be
the chain-lockers and storage-room. The
i main saloon is about 10 feet long, taking
in the full width of the yacht. In the
center of this will be placed the cabin
table, secured to the main mast.
The finish throughout the yacht, in
cluding the cockpit, will he in natural
woods with a high finish. It has not as
yet been settled whether it will be of a
light or dark nature. Along each side of
the main saloon will be seats covered with
red plush cushions, which, when necessity
demands, can be converted into sleeping
bunks to accommodate at least four per
The planking of this craft is of one and
one-half inch cedar, while the ribs are of
two and one-half by two and one-quarter
steam-bent oak. The deck and cabin top
are of one and one-half inch cedar. The
steering will be done by wheel. It is
thought that she will be well tuned up by
the opening day of the Corinthian Yacht
Club, of which one of her owners is a mem

The yacht Catherine, owned by Captain
I Southerland, has lately been overhauled
I and repointed. She has been given a new
j bowsprit, which is fully twice as long as
the one taken out, which will enlarge the
headsail. This was done to correct the
terrible weather helm that she carried.
The yachtsmen have been wondering
what the captain of The Pride of the Bay
is going to carry on the 60-foot mast he has
in his craft. Surely not sails? Half of
the length would be an overabundance.
