A WOMAN POISONED
Mrs. Jennie Matthews Given
a Fatal Dose of Strych
HER HUSBAND'S STATEMENT.
The Secretary of Laurel Hill Cem

The body of Mrs. Jennie Matthew^ wife
of a street-car conductor, living at 502
Broderiok street, was taken to the Morgue
In a living statement made by her at a
hit.* hour last night she charged the sec
retary of the Laurel Hill Cemetery with
About 2 o'clock in the afternoon she
complained of being sick, so her husband,
Edwin Matthews, says. She told him she
had been induced by the secretary to
take a pill.
Dr. Griffiths of 1340 Hayes street was
called and did what he could for her, but
. she died at 12:35 o'clock this morning.
According to the statement made to her
husband the secretary of the cemetery,
Charles H. Crowell, had made improper
proposals to the woman when she went to
visit the grave of her two children.
She resisted and exhibited a revolver.
He then gave her a pill.
Her little five-year girl, who was with
her at the time, corroborates the dead
mother's statement, saying that her mother
at first refused to take the pill, but was
prevailed upon to do so by Crowell's argu
ment. The child says Crowell told Mrs.
Matthews she would be a fool if she did not
take the pill.
Dr. Griffiths says it was a clear case of
strychnine poisoning, and that he searched
the Matthews house and could find no
other evidence of the drug.
His reason for making the statement
was to prevent any suspicion that the
woman might have taken the poison with
The dead woman was 27 years of age.
The police were made acquainted with
Mrs, Matthews' dying statement, and will
arrest Crowell to-day.
The husband of the dead woman called
. at the New City Hall at 2:30 o'clock this
morning and had a consultation with Cap
Matthews said that as nearly as he could
. learn Superintendent Crowell gave his
wife a pill and took one himself.
He did not know what had become of

MADE THE DOG HOWL
A Canine in a Sausalito Church
Laments for His An-
The Rector, the Reverend Peter
Miel, Was Reading of Wicked
A circumstance which has been the sub
ject of much discussion in church circles
in Sausalito, and created an uneasy feeling
among the superstitious, is the conduct of
an old dog which once belonged to Rev.
Mr. Reed, formerly rector of the Episcopal
church. When Mr. Eeed died, and was
succeeded by Mr. Miel, the dog continued
to go to the church every Sabbath, as had
been his wont during Mr. Reed's incum
bency, and lie in the vestry.
Now, when the music of the choir suited !
this old beast he'd get up and wag his tail i
with every evidence of satisfaction. When, j
on the other hand, it offended his critical '
taste, the dog would show signs of the |
utmost despondency, and, setting his head i
between his paws, emit low and inhar
monioOß howls. These eccentricities were ■
regarded simply as evidences of more than
ordinary canine sagacity, and the old dog's !
visits to the vestry were not interdicted.
But last Sunday an incident occurred j
which is difficult, of even the most remote |
explanation The choir had sunn some
portion of the new mass by Mr. Miel, and j
the thumps of the dog's tail might be dis- I
i tinctly heard against the vestry door. And j
then the clergyman read the lesson of the I
day, which was the history of the fate of '
the wicked Jezebel. When he came to the i
passage where the dogs lapped the blood
of that wretched woman, the doe gave a
loud, resonant and most dismal howl, and
showed unmistakable sijrns o f wrath and
This is the occurrence which absolutely
defies the theorist. The animal may have
had some dim understanding that a reflec- i
tion was being cast upon his ancestors and ■
wished to enter his protest against it, or
the utterance of the word Jezebel re- j
minded him of a mate in the days of his
adolescence. Among the many 'illnstra- j

An Early Morning l.laze.
The Fire Department was called ont early
this morning to 5 Goodsell place, on Rincoa
Hill, by an alarm from box 50.
A one-story frame cottage, owned by Charles
Goodsell and occupied by Henry Raymond, a
barber, for several months, was in flames.
The building, which Mr. Goodsell says was
worth about $200, was fairly gutted.
Raymond says he had just returned home
about 11 o'clock and retired, taking the pre
caution to blow out the lamp.
In a little while he was awakened by flames
all about him, and barely escaped with* his life.
He says he had $800 worth' of furniture in
sured for $400, and that his family went away
on a visit about a week ago.
A Chinese Native Son.
Ah Wing, a Chinese criminal, played in luck
yesterday. He served his term in San Quentin

as he was set free. An attempt was made to
deport him under the McCreery act, but as his
attorney proved that he was a native-born citi

THE CROP OF tfOVELS.
Fiction Forms the Majority of Manu
scripts Sent to Publishers.
Novels form the largest part of the book
manuscripts received by publishing houses.
Out of 100 manuscripts received during a
recent fortnight by a prominent publish
ing firm sixty-two were novels. The same
publisher told me that, sometimes the per
centage of novels would reach 75 per cent.
This tendency for novel writing is un
doubtedly due to the fact that the greatest
"hits" in the literary world are made with
novels, and this stimulates the average
writer to work in this field.
Of all the!>e novels it is plain to be seen
irom the figures given in the preceding
paragraph that scores must be written be
fore one is accepted. And even if a writer
has a novel accepted the percentage of suc
cess is decidedly against him. During
this investigation process I selected fifteen
recently published novels issued by six
different houses, and I learned that the
entire number printed of these fifteen
novels was 41,000 copies, or about 2700
copies of each. And in this fifteen 9000
copies were printed of one novel— really
the only successful novel of the lot. It is
safe to say that of these fifteen novels the
average sale of each will not reach 1000
copies. But giving that number to each,
the novel selling at $1, the author would
receive less than $100 for his manuscript,
deducting for mutilated copies and those
sent to the newspapers, etc. I know case
after case where authors did not receive
$50 all told as a return for a novel, and
sometimes very much less than that. —

ODD FELLOWS ADJOURN.
The Grand Lodgeand Rebekah
Assembly Installed Their
LAST DAY OF THE SESSION.
Ladles Granted a Rehearing: and
Then Instituted as Full-
The Grand L^dge of Odd Fellows and
the Rebekah convention and assembly in
stalled their officers yesterday and ad
In the morning the ladies assembled in
their hall with the intention of appealing
to the Grand Lodge from the action taken
on Friday, whereby a charter was granted
and proclaimed for a Rebekah assembly by
Grand Master Simpson. Before the ladies
discussed the subject the grand master was
announced. He stated that inasmuch as
there had been a misunderstanding regard
ing the matter the day before, the subject
could be reconsidered. This was the ac
tion the Rebekahs desired, and at once
took up and discussed the charter from the
point at which it was dropped on Friday.
Every clause was considered carefully,
and after several hours' discussion it was
decided to accept the charter, and word to
that effect was sent to the grand master,
who responded by going through the
formality of announcement.
The ceremony of installation was gone
through, and the grand president an
nounced her appointments as follows:
Warden, Mrs. S. Wolf of Sacramento; con
ductor, Mrs. I. B. Baker; inside guardian,
Mrs. D. C. Savage of Livermore; chaplain,
Mrs. R. A. Cosner of Oroville.
In order to show the brothers of the
order that they had no hard feelings re
garding the action previously taken, the
ladies of the assembly presented Grand
Master Simpson with a handsome bouquet,
in the center of which nestled a pretty gold
watch with an inscription commemorative
of the session and containing wishes for his
success in the order.
The presentation was made by Grand
President Mrs. Greenwood, and came as a
surprise to Grand Master Simpson, who
accepted the gift with expressions of thanks
and a promise to aid the ladies of the order
in every way possible.
Shortly after 2 p. m. the Rebekah As
sembly adjourned sine die. with a vote of
thanks to the press, the Grand Lodge and
the promise to accept the hospitality of
Templar Lodge in the evening.
While the Kebekahs were winding up
their session the Grand Lodge was busy
with routine business. The hnance com
mittee reported that the Odd Fellows'
Home will need a sum of money for this
fiscal year which will probably necessitate
an assessment of 55 cents per capita on the
membership of this grand jurisdiction.
The assessment on subordinate lodges is
estimated on a total membership of 30,685,
and was authorized by the following reso
lutions, which were adopted:
Resolved, That an assessment of 55 cents per
capita he levied upon the membership of the
subordinate lodges of this jurisdiction, as
shown by their reports of June 30, 1895, and
that the same be made due and payable by the
subordinate lodges as follows: Thirty cents per
capita in July, 1895, and !i5 cents per capita in
January, IS9(>. and transmitted directly to the
Resolved, That the sum so collected shall be
set apart and known as the Odd Fellows' Home
The committee on official visitations and
redistricting of the State reported that a
division of the jurisdiction into three sec
tions was deemed advisable, and that at
least one district must be visited each
year. It was further reported and adopted
We would further recommend that where
the grand master cannot reach all parts of his
district he appoint one of the elective grand
officers to perform this duty in his stead, pay
ing the expenses of such appointee out of the
sum set apart to him for that purpose.
We would further recommend that the sum
of $200 be set apart for the purpose of paying
the expenses of the grand secretary when mak
ing official visits, under the direction of the
grand master, for the purpose of instruction of
Quite a lively discussion ensued over the
report of the committee on state of the
order, which reported in part:
The test provided in the constitution is that
i the applicant must be of "good moral charac
ter and industrious habits, having some known
respectable means of support." Under existing
law a subordinate lodge cannot make any ad
i ditional qualitication, and cannot therefore
I proscribe the keeper of a saloon or a person en
! gaged in the sale of intoxicating liquors if he
is otherwise qualified (White's Digest, 1389,
sections 005 and 606), but the lodge should
carefully consider all applications from per
sons engaged in such business (Journal, 180i>,
12-13, 125-126). But a person engaged in
keeping a gambling-house or engaged therein,
or in any other business in violation of the
i criminal laws of the State, does not come
I within the constitutional qualification and is
i not eligible (Journal, 1808, 414.527); hence
I we approve and disapprove of said decision in
Many of the delegates desired to disbar
saloon-keepers, but as it was clearly shown
that the business was not unlawful the
report was adopted, and any member who
is in any way connected with a gambling
house is disqualified.
It was agreed by vote to permit the
j Rebekah Assembly to work under the old
I method and not be compelled to comply
I with the laws adopted at this session of the
Ail subordinate lodges were requested to

i the older the lodge the more honorable

It was again decided that subordinate
lodges shall not be permitted to incor

election of grand officers was indefinitely
The report of the legislative committee
recommending that when two or more
lodges desired to consolidate they be per
mitted to do so was adopted.
Charters were ordered granted to all
subordinate and Rebekah lodges organized
since the last session.
It was declared illegal for any past
grand to install any noble grand or vice
grand until he had examined the officers
to be so installed and found them suffi
ciently acquainted with the work they
would be called upon to perform to war
rant their installation.
Representatives of the Sovereign Grand
Lodge were requested to endeavor to ob
tain legislation favorable to aged members
of defunct lodues.
At the evening session the new officers
were installed. Grand Master Gosbey ap
pointed O. F. Hitchcock, grand chaplain-

Past Grand Master Simpson was pre
sented with a jeweled badtie on behalf oi
the Grand Lodge by V. S. Northey.
With the good of the order at "heart the
forty-second annual session of the Grand
Lodge adjourned sine die. Many of
the delegates accepted the invitation of
Kebekah Templar Lodge to participate in
the lunch and entertainment prepared for
the Rebekah delegates.
An extensive programme was enjoyed
after which dancing followed in Memorial
Mrs. Dora Baker, Mrs. W. L. Owen and
Miss Clara Zinn, the committee in charge
of the entertainment, were assisted by the
members of the Templar Loage.
Big African Undertaking.
A new South African Company the
Consolidated Estate of the Cape Colony
has been formed with a capital of £1 150 -
000, and with a strong board of directors,
the chairman being Sir Thomas Suther
land. The company, it is stated, has ac
quired land in the Western Province of
Cape Colony to the extent of 652 square
miles, including farms in the Cape division,
Stellenbosch, Paarl, Malmesbury, Piquet
berg, Tulbagh and Ceres, the latter includ
ing the Waverley Mill estate, which is one
of the best fruit-bearing farms in the coun
try, says the Westminster Gazette.
In the last two years the country has
been quietly prospected and opinions on
the farms obtained, and the company
would have been registered long since, but
for the timidity of farmers in depositing
their title deeds with the solicitors of the
company. Some of these title deeds are
most curious, a number of them bearing
the signature of Governor Van der Stell,
under the Dutch Government some 250
years ago, and being so quaint that they
are undecipherable, even to the cleverest
Dutch scholar. The company being
now registered the farmers whose lands
have been bought will be paid off in
batches as the farms have been acquired,
and an allowance will be made for im
provements since the options were ob
A large number of the occupants, too,
will be employed by the new company.
The working capital of the company, it is
stated, will be £350,000, and, among the
objects, are working for minerals, wine
farming, fruit-growing and the cultivation
of cereals; and the company will also go
in for livestock breeding," tree-planting
and water-boring on an extensive scale. It
is said that the prospecting of the company
in the Knils River district has resulted in
the discovery of a seam of coal thirty feet
thick, and gold reefs are reported to "be of
exceeding richness. Finds of cobalt, plum
bago and manganese are also reported in
considerable quantities. The company is
believed to have excellent prospects, for,
owing to the thirst for gold and diamonds,
farming now offers good chances at the

The Ladies' Auxiliary to Affil
iate With the Actors'
The Actresses Virtually Say That
the Order Cannot Succeed
The actors and actresses of San Fran
cisco are nearly one — that is, they are
nearly one, so far as the American Actors'
Association is concerned.
Several days ago the Ladies' Auxiliary
of the American Actors' Association held
an interesting meeting at which a series of
Miss Mina Gleason, One of the Aux
[From a photograph.]
resolutions were drafted, coupled with an
appeal to the actors that the auxiliary be
taken into the lodge on an equal footing
with the male members. The ladies declared
that there was not a sufficient number of
actresses in San Francisco to form an inde
pendent lodge, and that the only way they
could thoroughly evidence their loyalty to
the order was through close and actual
affiliation with the parent body. As vet
the actors have made no answer to this
appeal, but it is generally believed that,
rather than see the auxiliary go to pieces,
they will be admitted to full membership.
In fact, it has been announced that the
ladies will he given active membership,
though nothing official will be known until
the next meeting of the association.
"We are only a few," said Miss Gleason
yesterday, "and if the association should
refuse us membership it means that the
auxiliary must go to pieces. lam confi
dent, however, that they will take us in,
if what the members tell me is true. The
matter is even of more importance to the
Actors' Association than it is to us, for tlie
very reason that no institution can be a
success that is divided against itself. They
will finally act on the matter at the next
meeting, and that we will be cared for I
haven't the slightest doubt."
The auxiliary as it now stands is made
up of the following ladies: Mrs. Sarah,
Miss Alice Kingsburv Cooley, Miss Anita
Pallon, Miss Maud E;lna Hall, Miss Helen
Henry, Misa Julia Blanc, Miss Pauline
Maitland, Miss Kate Eckert, Miss Annie
Dailey, Miss Edith Burtis, Miss Millie
Liston and Miss Mina Gleason.
The Aciors' Association is making ex
tensive preparations for the monster 6ene

now are that it will be a grand success.

BEYOND THE COUNTERFEITER.
Bank of England Notn Paper Proof
It is interesting to know, on the author
ity of the Paper Record, that ever since
Bank of England notes existed the paper
for^tjiem has been made by one firm, says
the Boston Herald.
But it is not the water-marked paper
alone that gives protection against for
gery, for the ink, the engraving and the
printing are all of a special description,
and the signature puts a finishing touch
on the most difficult to imitate of all bank
notes, although, perhaps, it is the plainest
of all. .
Still, after all, the paper of the Bank of
England note is the chief safeguard, and
possibly the public will never know all the
traps set for the counterfeiter in the ma
terial of the note alone.
The mold is the size of a pair of note*
and measures sxl6)^ inches. When'
therefore, the twin notes are separated
by the guillotine, each has one edge
breadthways clean cut, and three deckle
Thus a counterfeiter would be under the
absolute necessity of providing himself
with hand-made paper, without which he
could not get three aeckie edges.
The twin notes are printed before separa
tion, and to enable the printer to know the
correct side of the paper for his impres
sion, the top right-hand corner of the
double note is rubbed off.
Despairing of counterfeiting the paper
the "crooks" who fly at high game have
constantly plotted and planned to obtain
a stock of paper which, whether in the
mills or elsewhere, is as closely guarded as
a Derby favorite. As recently as 1862 a
successful burglary was committed at the
mills, but although forged notes were
quickly put in circulation, the thieves
were soon captured and the bulk of the
paper was recovered.
The ink used in the printing was formerly
made from grape-stone charcoal. Now ft
is manufactured from naphtha smoke.
HIBERNIANS WILL BUILD
A New Structure In Which All
Irish Societies May
A CONVENTION IS CALLED.
National and Catholic Organizations
to Work In Perfect Har
The Ancient Order of Hibernians, which
is the largest and probably the most in
fluential of the Irish societies of San Fran
cisco, has taken the initiative in the estab
lishing of a fund for the erection of a hand
some building that will serve the purposes
of all the Irish and Catholic organizations
in the City.
This action was decided upon at a recent
meeting of the directory of the order, and
committees were appointed to take charge
of the building fund and devise ways and
means for swelling it up to the proportions
necessary to erect a structure that will be a
credit to the Catholic societies and the City
The initiatory step will be taken on July
3, when there will be a joint entertainment
of all the divisions of the Ancient Order of
Hibernians, the Knights of St. Patrick,
Knights of the Red Branch, St. Vincent de
Paul Society, Young Men's Institute,
Young Ladies' Institute, Catholic Ladies'
Aid Society and all the kindred organiza
tions of the Catholic church in San Fran
cisco. There will be a convention at which
these bodies will be represented, and plans
will then be perfected for the foundation
and building of Hibernia Hall. These so
cieties are quite wealthy, and it will be an
easy matter for them to raise any sum of
money that may be needed for the purpose.
The" Ancient Order of Hibernians is a
pioneer society of California. Its object is
to relieve distress wherever found among
the brethren from the Emerald isle, to aid
its members in different ways, to en
courage devotion to their native land, and
instill in the minds and hearts of all a
loyalty to American principles and Ameri
can institutions. The' society is very
powerful in the United States, having
divisions in every city and town of im
portance from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
The State officers of the society are as
follows: President, Bernard Higgins, 356
North Second street, San Jose; recording
secretary, D. S. McCarthy, 1365 Tenth
street, Oakhind ; treasurer, Matthew Crowe,
Mountain View, Santa Clara County.
The county officers of San Francisco are
as follows: Chaplain, Eev. D. O. Crowley,
2030 Howard street; president, M. J. Man
ning, 1776 Howard street; vice-president,
John Blake, 915 Illinois street; recording
secretary, M. H. McCaffefty, 1444 Jackson
street; financial secretary, J. J. Moran,
310 Market street; treasurer, Jeremiah Kel
leher, 272 Clementina street. The county
officers, or board of directors,, meet on the
third Friday of the month at 927 Mission
The divisions will meet during the com
ing week to arrange the preliminaries for
the joint gathering in July. All the
Hibernians in the City are "enthusiastic
over the proposition, and the prospects are
most encouraging for a handsome hall.
Division No. 9, Ancient Order of Hiber
nians, is making active preparations for its
annual picnic and outing on Decoration
day. There will be a long list of valuable
prizes and the affair promises to be of
more than usual interest. There will be
games of various kinds for boys and girls,
and men, and games in which the ladies
also may participate. Besides there will
be excellent music for those who enjoy
this. The Irish music will be a feature of
the day. And every care is being taken
by the committee against overcrowding.
There will be ample accommodation for all
who may attend. Harbor View is a beau
tiful place and a day's outing there will be
greatly enjoyed by all.
