The Last of This Variety Killed
Recently in Nevada
Held In Superstitious Reverence by
the Indians— Nine Bullets In
Its Body.
The white buck of Nevada County, prob
ably the last of its kind in California, has
fallen before a hunter'B gun. Its Btuffed
hide is on exhibition in Ladd's gunstore.
It was not an Indian hunter who killed it,
for no red man would have dared to draw
a bead upon the beautiful creature for fear
of a curse falling upon his family and his
tribe. The Indians in that locality believed
that the white deer contained the spirit of
one of their great and good chiefs and to
kill it would have been worse than mur
der. For several years the animal had
been occasionally seen by the Indians in
the mountains in various parts of the
county, but they rarely spoke of it to the
whites, fearing the latter would start in
pursuit. A few white men saw it, but
none were very desirous of taking its life
because of its beauty. It weighed about
sixty-five pounds and its hair and hide
were of pure white. Near the horns the
hair was tinged with gray.
Many years ago a white deer was seen in
Men docino County, but it was of a dingy
or yellowish white, but the Nevada County
buck waa as white as snow.
It required nine large Winchester bullets j
to kill it. The hunter ran across the ani
mal on a mountain side and opened fire, j
Although wounded by the first bullet the j
deer bounded into a small clump of brush,
the only shelter within a mile. From his
position on the hillside the hunter poured !
shot after shot into the thicket whenever j
he could catch a glimpse of the white hide.
Tlm wounded creature was afraid to leave
the hushes and make a run for shelter
deeper in the mountains, and it was liter
ally burnt to death with hot lead. The r
last shot entered the heart, and when the j
hunter secured his prey he found that nine
bullets had struck the little creature. Its |
vitality was remarkable.
The Indians in Nevada County and
across the line in the State of Nevada
looked upon the white buck's death as an
ill omen. The hunter was very careful in
removing the skin to keep it perfect. He
sent it to this City and had it mounted.
Extensive Improvement!! Being Made
to the Asylum at Devisadero
and Hayes Streets.
All the contracts for new buildings and
extension of the new structure of the i
Hebrew Orphan Asylum on Devisadera
street, between Hayes and Grove, were
signed this week and work on the founda- ,
tions begun yesterday. No time will now
be lost in pushing the work to an early ;
As the building now stands it can accom
modate about 100 children. When the new
additions are finished there will be ample
room for 250 orphans. As estimated at
VrtM'nt, the improvements will cost at
least $40,000.
There is a new wing to be added to tha
front on Devisadero street, which, when
finished, will extend nearly the whole
length of the block.
In the basement of the new wing will be
a swimming-tank for the little boys, 20x18
feet — large enough for them to learn how
to battle with the waves. In each corner
of the tankroom will be a shower bath,
under which the swimmers must get before
taking the plunge. Adjoining it will be a
spacious playroom, lavatories, dressing
rooms and lunch and cloak rooms. The
old wing will be remodeled and will be
used exclusively by the girls in recreation
and for lavatories, etc. Away in the rear
will be a coal storehouse and engine and
boiler rooms.
On the lirst floor the old wing is dupli
cated with a dining-room 43x64 feet in the
back, enlarged pantries and dining-rooms
for small children, the superintendent and
servants. Furtberin the rear will be th^e
kitchen and storerooms and a bakery.
The front building will contain on this
floor the office, directors' room, reception
rooms, schoolrooms, separate for boys and
eirls, wanir dispensary, library and
The second story will have three new
dormitories for boys, with lavatories and
anterooms. But the main feature will be
a synagogue in the rear middle wing,
64x43 feet in area. The top floor is used for
.. A brick building apart from the main
structure is included in the contracts just
let. This will be used as a boiler-room and
laundry, having all the latest machiner*
for washing and drying clothes. On its
upper floor there will be a printing office, a
shoemaker's and carpenter's shop, where
the elder boys will be taught trades.
Kntoinolo£ist Craw Is Doing This Work
in Southern California.
State Entomologist Alexander Craw is in
the southern part of the State distributing
ladybirds to fight the cottony cushion
Bcaie. the black scale and other horticul
tural pests which have been making the
life of the farmer wretched.
It is the annual distributing time at the
Horticultural Bureau. The Vedalia car
dinalis, the Rhyzobius ventralis and
other species of the ladybird have for
months past been propagated by Mr.
Craw in numbers sufficient to satisfy the
big demand of the sufferers from scale.
The militant bugs are carefully placed in
round wooden boxes about an inch and a
half in diameter, and are distributed all
over the State by the courtesy of Uncle
Sam's mail service.
Arrived at their destination, the bugs
are let loose on the soale-infested orchards,
and they lose no time in attacking the
scale. They make their way up the tree,
devouring the larvae of the pest, and it
is a foregone conclusion when the Vedalia
cardinalis leaves a tree that every scale
has been removed from it.
Professor Koebele, the discoverer of the
Vedalia cardinalis, has recently sent to Pro
fessor Grau several other insect scale
fighters from Australia, and their useful
ness is now berns* tested at several experi
mental stations lmthe State.
Thousands of colonies of ladybirds will
be distributed this year, and it is esti
mated that within a few years they will
have so thoroughly performed their work
that hardly a scale insect will be found in
the orchards of California.
Alias Sankey's Relatives in. the East
Are Still Trouble
Miss Carrie Sankey, the heir to the San
key fortune, who for seven years has
steadily battled in the courts to maintain
her rights, is still waiting for her fortune
to materialize. It will be recollected that
her adopted father, Samuel Sankey, died
nearly seven years ago, leaving vast realty
possessions in California, Chicago and
Miss Sankey appeared in the courts as a
claimant and established her right to in
herit his possessions, through the Supreme
Court of the State. Sankey has a small
army 01 sisters, cousins and aunts in Phila
delphia and Illinois, who have for seven
years maintained an apparently intermin
able dispute over every dollar and every
foot of ground owned by the deceased.
Quite recently several new suits were
instituted in Pennsylvania by the hungry
relatives, for no other apparent purpose
than to pjevent the rightful neir from gain
ing her inheritance. Miss Sankey's law
yers will therefore have several more legal
battles to fight before their client will have
peace from litigation.
Miss Sankey is still with friends on
Twenty-third street, near Valencia, and
hopes that within a few years her enemies
will be vanquished forever. Her attor
neys are doing everything possible to re
lieve her financial embarrassment.
Witness Lee Sent to the
County Jail by Coroner
W. J. Hawkins.
He Refused to Tell What He Knew
About the Death of James
Coroner W. J. Hawkins and Witness
Edward Lee had an altercation yesterday,
with the result that Lee is now in the
i County Jail for contempt in refusing to
; answer questions at an inquest.
Lee got tired of close confinement in a
few hours and offered to answer any and
all questions. But the jury had been dis
i missed, so Dr. Hawkins told him he could
remain a guest of the City and County
until Monday morning and decide finally
upon his future cour c of action.
On the 3d inst. James Waldie of the
American Biscuit Company was suffocated
i by gas at his home, 3007 Fillmore street.
Some one wrote a note to the Coroner in
sinuating that the deceased did not turn
'. on the jets that filled the room and smoth
\ ered him.
At the first sitting of the Coroner's jury
Lee refused to answer incriminating ques
i tions until he had consulted his relatives.
j He was given until yesterday morning, at
' the request of tte jurors, but again refused
! to answer.
j ■ "Do you know anything about this
case?" asked the Coroner.
"Yes, sir," was the prompt reply. "I
i want to ask you one question. Can't we
j find out who wrote that letter intimating
that there was foul play?"
"Your business here is to tell all you
know about this case," said the Coroner
angrily. "You can do all the investigat
| ing you please afterward. Do you know
t anything about the death of James Wal
"I decline to answer."
Coroner Hawkins at once ordered a writ
Erepared to send Lee to jail for contempt,
ut the witness and his attorney, who was
present, entered a vigorous protest. Fin
ally the doctor made another attempt:
"Mr. Lee, do you know of any one turning
on the gas that caused the death of Mr.
"I don't know. I have been acquainted
with Jim for about twenty years."
"Do you suspect any one of having
caused his death?"
"I decline to answer that question on
the ground that I might incriminate my
Dr. Hawkins at once gave up trying to
get anything out of the witness, whom he
committed to the County Jail for con
tempt. On Monday morning Lee will be
given a chance to tell what he knows.
Bishop Walden's Visit.
Bishop J. M. Walden, D.D., L. L.D., of Cin
cinnati, one of the Bishops of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, arrived in this City this

Three Propositions Are Sub
mitted to the Board of
Objections Advanced to the Ballot
ing: and Competitive Examina
tion Systems.
The Board of Education has at present
under consideration the appointment of
teachers. Three methods have been pro
posed : The first method is that each in
dividual member of the board shall, when
a vacancy occurs upon the substitute list,
appoint to the substitute list in turn. This
is the individual appointment plan. The
second proposition is, that when a vacancy
occurs upon the substitute list, each
j member shall nominate one candidate for
that position, and that the board shall
ballot until some one candidate receives
the majority vote. The third method pro
posed is that the appointment to all vacan
cies on the substitute list shall be deter
mined by competitive examination, the
applicant having the highest standing to
be appointed to the position.
The first plan is considered to be the
best, for the reason that when a member of
the Board of Education makes an appoint
ment to the substitute class he is respon
sible for the appointment, and it is natural
that he sboula be careful and appoint the
very best applicant available to the posi
The objection to the second plan is that
the appointment might be controlled by a
combination in the board. Seven mem
bers of the Board of Education could take
to themselves all the patronage of the
School Department, putting in their
friends without regard to qualifications.
The objection to the competitive plan is
that a competitive examination does not
test fitness to teach. The only thing par
tially tested is the scholarship of the appli
cant. The applicant's ability to govern,
her influence with the pupil, her methods
of teaching, are not taken into considera
tion at all by a competitive examination.
The only way to get good teachers is to
have them appointed by individual mem
bers of the board in turn, each member
being responsible for his own appointment,
it being, of course, understood that the
applicant has the proper certificate. The
test of ability to govern, to teach and the
influence of the teacher must be deter
mined by actual work in the schoolroom,
under the supervision of the Superintendent
and the principal of the school.
The matter will be pursued further at
future meetings of the Board of Education.
The Second Performance of
the National Band a
Pretty Native Songs and Airs Fairly
Charm the People Who
Hear Them.
A music-loving audience gathered last
night in Metropolitan Hall to hear the sec
! ond concert of the Hawaiian National
j band.
Senor Jose S. Libornio, the leader and
manager of the band, had prepared a de
lightful programme and each piece was
rendered with such delicacy and precision
as to captivate the audience. Encores were
plentiful and Senor Libornio's people were
not slow in responding to the calls.
Over the stage hung an American flag,
while by its side was stretched Hawaii's
emblem. The stage costume of the Ha
waiians is neat and attractive, consisting
[From a photograph.]
of white pantaloons, dark-blue sack coat
and tan shoes. They are an interesting
people and their thoroughness as musicians
was fully appreciated.
The first piece on the programme was a
march. "Distant Greeting," by Poring,
which was particularly well executed.
Rosas' "Sobre Las Olas," the tuneful
Spanish waltz, was rendered with a nice
feeling for that kind of music, and received
hearty applause.
The Hawaiian song 3, however, proved
the greatest attraction. They are soft and
pathetic, and yet of such rounded volume
as to fill the" listener with a desire for
more. "Markai Ka Makani o Kohala"
(Hawaiian breeze) is a pretty native song,
and was well rendered by the chorus. The
song opens in a soothing sort of way and
gradually crows in volume apd sweetness,
until tlie whole building is filled with
weird musical sounds. Another pretty
son? was "The Windmill," though it was
hardly equal to the love ditty, "My Heart
Is Dying for Thee."
The remainder of last night's programme
was as follows :
Medley, "A Night in New York" (Brooks);
polka. "Through the Air" (Damm); piccolo
solo, M. Kealakfii ; mazurka, "The Ha
waiian National Band*' (Libornio); grand
march, "Kaimana Hila," with songs (Libornio).
The piccolo solo of M. Kealakai was so
well received that he was compelled to
respond. For an encore he played a com
position of his own.
There are forty musicians in the band,
the instruments being divided as follows:
Fabbots, two; flutes, two; barytone, three;
piccolo, one; saxophone, two; clarionet,
seven; trombone, three; oboe (human
voice), one; cornet, five: tuba, two; alto,
three; tenor, two; drums, two.
A splendid programme has been pre
pared for to-night and those who attend
can be assured of a rare musical treat as
March, "Zacatecas" (Codina); overture, "Sem
iramide" (Rossini); air, -'The Pirate" (Bellini);
grand fantasie, "Lilinokalani," saxophone solo,
(Libornio); march, "Lei Lelnia" (The Blossom
of Hilo); andante, "Akahi Hoi" (Think But
One); hula, "Kala c Alohi Nei" (The Day of
My V, eddinf?) ; medley, "Boston Bake" (Brooks) ;
polka, "Kconi Ko," saxophone solo (Libornio)
by the leader; danza, "La Paloma" (Yradier);
march, "Lei Oha Oha," with songs, (Kealakai).
Interviewing by Telephone.
Many Frenchmen nowadays live in Brus
sels, some because they find it convenient
to quit their native country, others be
cause Brussels, while wonderfully like
Paris, is as yet far less expensive a place to
live in. This being so, the telephone be
tween the French and Belgian capitals is
extremely important, and one of the more
go-ahead of the Parisian newspapers has
hit upon the device of publishing "inter
views by telephone" with celebrities across
the frontier. These interviews differ in
nothing from interviews obtained in the
usual way. Thus, in one of them a poli
tician was asked by his interviewer, "What
do you intend to do?" and the account
thus continues, "Why, I shall simply
watch events," he replied, rubbing nis
hands. People are now wondering how the
telephone has been brought to such per
fection that a man can be heard rubbing
his hands hundreds of miles away.—Lon

withstanding the lateness of the hour, they
were met at the station by the whole local
company in uniform and countless num
bers of maidens and escorted to the armory
at the corner of A and Third streets,
whence they were detailed in squads to
the best hotels in the city.
Bright and early this morning the visit

made in the practice were well up to the
average of the company, notwithstandiug
the fact that the range is a strange one.
Many members of the local company
watched the visitors at practice, and the
good scores caused considerable comment.
Great interest is taken in the result of the
match, and Marysville men seem confident
of winning, but Captain Cook says his men
will hold their own. The remainder of the

The Wearers of the Blue and
Gold Easily Tie the
Eleven Californians Virtually Da
feat Twenty - Five Crack
PHILADELPHIA, Pa.. May 18.— This
afternoon the crack athletic teams of the
universities of California and Pennsylvania
met in dual championship games. Dr.
Beverly Cole sported the blue and gold in
the audience, while the Governor, Mayor
and other Pennsylvania notables waved
the blue and red. The California bear and
the Pennsylvania Quaker tussled for two
hours, and, though neither overthrew the
other, the bear had the better of the con
flict. Last night it rained heavily, this
morning the sky was threatening, but this
afternoon the sun peeped out smilingly
upon the Californians. The games were
held upon the new athletic grounds of the
university — Franklin field.
The newness of the track ana the rain
detracted from it, and the records were
otherwise splendid. When the U. C. team
first came East Pennsylvania conceded
them one event out of fourteen in the duel.
After the Princeton victory they conceded
them a possible four. The Californians
claimed nothing, but promised to do their
best. There were fourteen events. A first
place counted one. The Californians hav
ing no vaulter, could only contest for
thirteen points. They won seven, and
they had eleven men to Pennsylvania's
The 100-yard dash was the first event.
The Pennsylvania men secured the fastest
starts. Barnes (U. C.) passed Scoggins(U.
C.) and Judd (U. P.) at the fifty-yard
mark, but failed to catch Bucholz (U. P.),
who won by a foot in 10 1-5 sec. Score:
Pennsylvania 1, California 0.
The photput was soon over. Knipe (Penn
sylvania) winning from Koch (U. C), with
40 feet 8 inches. Score: Pennsylvania 2,
U. CO..
The half-mile run was a loafing race,
being conceded to Orton (Pennsylvania).
Bradley (U. C.) paced out the distance, but
Sichel (Pennsylvania) ran second. Time,
2 ni in. 8 sec. Score: Pennsylvania 3, U.
C. 0.
Dyer and Torrey, the U. C. hurdle team,
came in one-two in a beautiful race over
the nigh hurdles. Dyer, who is running
in magnificent form, won, without touch
ing a hurdle, in 1G 1-5 sec. Score : Penn
sylvania 3, U. C. 1.
The high jump furnished fine sport be
tween Captain Koch (U. C.) and Winsor
(Pennsylvania). Patterson (U. C.) went to
pieces, failing at 5 feet and 10 inches.
Koch cleared 5 feet lOJ^ inches, and Win
sor won with a magnificent leap of 5 feet 11
inches. Score: Pennsylvania 4, U. C. 1.
The mile walk was one of the closest
events of the day. Merwin, U. C, led off
the first lap with a fine spurt. Fetterman,
Pa., caught him on the third lap and stuck
by him to the last. The two sprinted up
to the very top, when the Californian won
by four inches. Time, 7 mm. 37 sec.
Score: Pennsylvania 4, U. C. 2.
Woolsey, U. C, easily won the broad
jump with 21 feet 3}£ inches. Bucholz, Pa.,
was second. Woolsey rose well, and could
have cleared a greater distance if pushed.
Score: Pennsylvania 4, U. C. 3.
The 220-yard dash was a grand race from
start to finish. Barnes and Scoggins, the
California pair, were beaten at the start —
and, by the by, the Easterners got the
start of the Western men every time — but
they had plenty of room in which to over
haul the Pennsylvania men, and they did
it. Barnes, who is running like a little
demon, won in 22 3-5 sec. — remarkably fast
time for such a slow-curved track. This
breaks the U. C. record. Scoggins was a
eood second. Score: Pennsylvania 4,
U. C. 4.
The U. C. had no entry in the pole-vault.
Bucholz beat out Stewart with 10 feet 10
inches. Score: Pennsylvania 5, U. C. 4.
The U. C. also had no contestant in the
mile run. Jarvis wen from Oremin in 4
mm. 57 sec. Score: Pennsylvania 6,
U. C. 4.
The low hurdle race followed and was an
easy victory for the California pair. Tor
rey won from Dyer by a yard in 26 1- 5 sec
onds, breaking the U. C. record. Score:
Pennsylvania 6, U. C. 5.
Osgood, Pennsylvania, led off the bicycle
race in fine style, Dozier (U. C.) following,
but on the third lap the Californian was
tasen with a cramp in the leg, which put
him out of the race. It was a great pity,
for Dozier was sure to have ridden a fast
race, and for grit he has no equal. Osgood
won in 5 mm. 37 sec. Score: Pennsylvania
7, U. C. 5.
Edgren, U. C, easily won the hammer
throw with 116 feet from Cressinger of
Pennsylvania. Bcore: Pennsylvania 7,
U. C. 6.
There was now but one event, the 440
--yard dash, and upon that depended the
day. Barnes was too sick to run, Koch
bad a cold, and then his record was only
61 1-5 seconds, while Sterrett of Pennsyl
vania had run in 50 3-5 seconds. The
Quakers, sure of the race, were ready to
back Sterrett with $500. Koch went up on
the scratch, simply saying that he would
try to do his best. Sterrett led by ten
yards at the end of the first furlong. Then
Koch forged ahead, taking the lead fifty
yards from home, winning as he pleased in
53 4-5 seconds. Score: Pennsylvania 7,
University of California 7.
Eleven men of the California team virtu
ally defeated twenty-five men of the Penn
sylvania team, the greatest track team in
Twenty Thousand People at the St. Xowis
ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 18.— Beautiful

Hudson Medical Institute — Deae Sirs:
"It affords me great pleasure to tell the
condition of my present health. For years
I have been almost a constant sufferer from
nervousness, general debility and prostra-
tion, in all of its forms, shooting pains all
over my body at times.
"I tried many different doctors of the
country and spent considerable money and
got only temporary relief at the time.' And '
thanks to the Hudson Medical Institute
for my present health. Have been under
their treatment now about four or five
months and feel like a young person, and,
}/i fact, I feel like a different person and
hold some pleasure in life.
"I feel it my duty to tell you, and in fact
to tell suffering humanity, that they can
get relief and get cured if they will put
themselves under your treatment.
"I know not what to say strong euough ;
to express my gratitude to the Hudson j
Medical Institute for my present good i
health. lam 65 years old and was reduced j
down at one time to 150 pounds, and now I ,
can tip the scales at 180 pounds. That is
as much as I ever weighed when I was
young and in vigorous health.

respectfully yours, L. M. Christie."
Fast Time Made by Fritz Lacey
on the Los Angeles
Twenty-Five Miles Reeled Off la
1:03:06 3-s— Emil Ulbricht Fin
ishes Second.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 18.— Fritz
Lacey, a local rider, to-day lowered tlie
twenty-five-mile competition race world's
record, held by L. S. Meintjes, made at
Chicago August 12, 1894.
Lacey's time was 1 :03 :06 3-5. The record
made by Meintjes was 1 :04 :M 3-5. The race
was under the auspices of the training
league of the Los Angeles "Wheelmen.
Emil Ulbricht was second and claimed
an unjust decision lost him the race. The
track was in excellent condition and the
weather fine.
There were five starters: Fritz Lary,
Emil Ulbricht, Godfrey Schmidt, William
Hatton and William M. Jenkins. Hatton
and Jenkins fell out and the others
finished in the order named. For son*
unaccountable reason Foster did not start.
The riders were paced by a tandem with
three reliefs.
Ulbricht's complaint of an unjust de
cision appears to be entirely groundless,
as he failed to take advantage of his only
opportunity to command the pacemakers,
which occurred in the twelfth mile. In-
Btead of taking the pole behind the pace
makers, he rode to the right, and as Lacey
held the pole, the pacemakers were under
his instructions.
Schmidt, in going into the homestretch,
had an excellent opportunity of getting
second place, but he BtrucK Lacey's pedal
and fell in a heap.
The time for the first mile was 2:17&, for
the fifth 11:45, tenth 24:814-5, fifteenth
37:19}£, twentieth 50:04 1-5 and | twenty
fifth 1 hour 3 mm. 6 3-5 sec.
Lacey's work is highly commendable, as
he rode a road wheel instead of a racer.
Tale Wins the Dual dames.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.. May 18.— Yale won
the dual games from Harvard this after
noon, scoring 65 points to the crimson's 47.
The afternoon was cold and gloomy and
the track a little heavy. Captain Hickok
outdid himself by breaking the dual rec
ords for the shot and hammer events by a
wide margin and bettering the intercol
legiate records as well in the name events.
In the pole vault young Billy Hoyt of
Harvard cleared 11 feet, which is higher
than the intercollegiate record by a good
