RECORDS AGAINST HIM.
F. J. H. Mitchell Trewe«k Held to An-
Bwer on a Charge of Bigamy.
The case of F. J. H. Mitchell Treweek,
charged with bigamy, was called in Judge
Joachimsen's court yesterday. On Satur
day Treweek asked for a continuance on
the ground that if he was allowed the
opportunity of searching the records he
could prove that his first wife was not
legally divorced from her husband when
she married him in September, 1893.
Treweek, accompanied by Detective Sey
mour, searched the records and found that
his tirst wife had been divorced in March,
18S'3. When the case was called yester
day Treweek. who conducted his own de
fense, rose and said: "Your Honor, the
records are against me. I have no defense
to offer." The Judge held him to answer
before the Superior Court in $2000 bonds.
CUT ON FREIGHT RATES
It Will Go Into Effect Monday
on the Southern
Pacific.
The Outcome of the Present Passenger
Rate War Between Here and
Portland.
As predicted in these columns a few
days ago, a freight rate war has evolved i
from the strife for passenger business be- i
tween the Southern Pacific Company and
the Oregon Railway and Navigation Com- j
pany.
Beginning on Monday next the Southern I
Pacilic will be prepared to handle through j
freight between this City and Portland or
Salem for $2 and $2 50 per ton on all ship
ments except explosives, fresh fruits or
vegetables, fresh meat or poultry, oils,
acids, furniture, vehicles, agricultural irn- j
piements or crates that cannot be conven
iently loaded on boxcars.
Existing rates are $S per ton on first,
second and third class freight, $7 on fourth
class, $6 on fifth class and class A, $5 on
classes B and C, and $4 on classes D and E.
The new $2 50 rate will apply on nrst,
second, third and fourth class shipments
and the §2 rate on the other six classes.
Although the steamers of the Oregon j
Railway ana INavigation Company have j
been carrying freight at $1 a ton for some j
time past at intervals to compete with the j
Alice Blanchard, a steam scnooner, it has J
maintained its regular rates of $3, $4 and j
$6 per ton on the different classes of freight j
at all other times, except when the i
Blanchard sailed. In order to meet the
cut of the Southern Pacific Company it i
is expected that the Oregon Railway and j
Navigation Company will make a flat rate
of $1 on all classes of freight, to apply till
farther notice.
J. C. Stubbs, traffic manager of the j
Southern Pacific Company, denies the re
port that the company will put on a line
of steamers to carry freight in competi
tion with the Oregon Railway and Naviga
tion Company, and says that no such
project has been or is contemplated.
A circular was issued by Manager FiTl
more to-day announcing the appointment
of Horace W. Ball, chief clerk of the
motor department, with headquarters at
Sacramento. Mr. Ball, until a few days
ago. held the position of chief clerk to
Auditor Foster of the motive power and
machinery department, but Mr. Foster's
office was abolished, necessitating a new j
field of labor for Mr. Ball, which he has j
been furnistyed at Sacramento.
It is the announced intention of the
Southern Pacific Company to hereafter
arrest and prosecute for false personation
all persons who are detected using
scalped tickets on their lines.
PORTLAND, 0r.., Nov. 26. -Southern
Pacific officials here have received instruc
tions to make immediate preparations for
securing docking privileges for the steamer
that the Southern Pacific will at once put j
on between Portland and San Francisco to j
compete with the O. R. and N. on freight
business. New rates on Southern Pacific
freight traffic, which are reduced from 10
to KJ per cent, will go into effect Monday.
O. R. ar.d N. officials received news of
the threatened competing boat with
something akin to alarm. It is the opinion
of tiiose who know that freight rates are
about as low as they can be maintained.
Railroad men regard the latest move of
the Southern Pacific as a virtual acknowl
edgment that theirs has been a losing
tight so far, inasmuch as demoralization in
passenger rates on tne Shasta special has
taken business from the regular overland.
THE STAGE MANAGER WINS.
The Tivoli Case Decided by the Jury in
Favor of John Nash.
Mrs. Kreling of the Tivoli failed to prove
in Judge Hunt's court to the satisfaction
of the jury that John E. Nash, her former
stage manager, had neglected his duties
for the race cou/se, the baths and horse
back rides. The jury on Monday brought
in a verdict in Nash's faTor for the amount
claimed, $360 for four weeks' salary, and
interest. But that amount is not all that
the verdict means 10 Mrs. Kreling. Nash
entered the suit decided yesterday four
weeks after his discharge, and he could
then ask for only $360 at $90 a week. The
contract under which he sued was for two
years, of which le3S than a year had ex
pired at the time he left the employ of the
Tivoli. Another suit is pending for sixty
one weeks' salary, and if Nash recovers for
services he was prevented from rendering
for the whole term of the contract the
total amount will reach nearly $6000.
HIS WIFE AT HIS SIDE
Howell Confronted With Wit
nesses Who Betray
Uneasiness.
NEW STOEIES ARE RELATED.
C. M. Murray and D. D. Williams Tell
What They Know About
the Case.
That which attracted most attention in
the continuation of the third trial of
Marion D. Howell, charged with counter
feiting, which is being heard before Judge
Morrow in the United States District
Court, was the presence of the two women
who sat beside the defendant, and who
appeared to note every phase of the testi-
mony, expressing their approval or dis
approval with appropriate nods of their
heads or frowns.
The Judge, jury and audience kept their
eyes almost continuously on these women.
The one is Mrs. Marion I). Howell. wife of
the defendant, and the other is Mrs. Will
D. Green, his stepdaughter. This is his
third trial; and every effort is being made
to save him, it being said that the Govern
ment is exhausting every effort to secure a
conviction.
The testimony of C. W. Murray, who
was also on the stand Monday, and who
was not a witness heretofore in the case,
was notable, not only because he was for
m erly charged with having nirect dealings
with Yisconti and Abatti, the men who
were arrested for manufacturing the coun
terfeit money, but because, also, he was
very much confused by Attorney Camp
bell" in his cross-examination. The
witness gave circumstantial accounts
of various occurrences and afterward so
modified tnem that the jury must have
doubted just what the witness intended to
say.
Murray is the man who undertook to
save himself by telling the truth as to all
that he knew. It appeared, very appar
ently, that he could tell much more of
| what he knew about this case than he
cared to tell. He was neither frank, can
i did nor disposed to give all the facts.
Both Murray and the succeeding wit
[ ness. D. D. Williams, appeared to have
! much knowledge in reserve, and which \
they shielded under responses of "I do
not remember" and "Can't tell" and
'Don't recall," and they each endeavored
to satisfy the attorneys'without betraying
any more of the facts than they were com
pelled to do.
Mr. Williams was led by the gentle and
persuasive tongue of Attorney Campbell
into relating things about which he after
ward had to scratch his head, while abso
lute silence came over the courtroom.
A number of exhibits were made of coin
on the part of the prosecution, although
much of the devious testimony of the wit
nesses indicated that the defendant knevr
all about and participated in what was
done. Cross-examination showed that they
were either uncertain in their testimony
or deliberately did not desire to tell the
i facts. Such admissions as they did make
! were wrung from them by shrewd ques
j tioniug.
The case was, on the conclusion of the
i testimony of Mr. Williams, continued till
i to-day at 10 o'clock.
MANUFACTURERS MEET
Subject of Patronizing Home In
dustries Under Dis
cussion.
A Visalia Electric-Power Company Of
fers Fair Inducements to
Capitalists.
The directors of the Manufacturers' and
Producers' Association held an interesting
meeting yesterday afternoon. The sub
jects of the dangers arising from the im
portation of cheap Japanese goods and the
use of prison-made articles will be found
elsewhere in this issue.
An interesting letter was received from
the Kaweah Irrigation and PowerConipany,
in which it was stated that the company
is now constructing a water-power plant
which will furnish about 3000 horsepower,
and it is the desire to interest capital in
the establishment of factories for the
manufacture of such articles as can be
produced in Tulare County. To those who
will interest themselves in this matter the
company will guarantee to furnish all the
building grounds free and building ma
terials at a very low rate. The letter
states:
We will build a railroad line to our falls or
power-station and give an extremely low rate
of freight, and will in many other ways offer
superior advantages. Our railroad will con
nect with both the Valley road and the
Southern Pacific, and the location of our work 3
is one of beauty, health and comfort. We
write you with the hope that you may lend us
some suggestions.
The writer states, in conclusion, that
manufactories for the production of castor
and aniseed oils, paper, ice, woolen goods,
boots and shoes, leather goods, pork-pack
ing, etc.. can be prosecuted with success
and profit. Marble and granite quarries
of the first class can also be opened on the
line of the railroad. All it wants to de
velop these natural resources is capital,
and the company will furnish cheap power
and transportation.
Director Sproule offered a resolution,
which was adopted, commending and in
dorsing the patriotism of the citizens of
Alameaa County in patronizing home in-
I dustries. The resolution referred particu
larly to the Manufacturers' Exposition,
which will open in Oakland on December
1G and last a week. The secretary was in
structed to notify the members of the as
sociation of its indorsement of the exposi
tion.
Mr. Keller, who resides in Oakland,
stated that the Ebell Club of that city is
composed of women who are all advocates
of patronizing home industries. He said
that their example should be followed by
clubs of thi3 City. He suggested that toe
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1895.
Century Club take up the matter and pop
ularize such a movement in this City-
Mr, Barrett of the Journal of Commerce
made a suggestion that was well received.
It was that the workingmen of the City
and State be organized into home-industry
clubs and home-product clubs. He stated
that statistics prove that last year foreign
goods were imported into this State of $100
value for every man, woman and child.
Considering the population, if this money
was spent for good of home manufacture
there would be much more money kept in
the State and better times experienced,
The appointment of delegates to the Na
tional Manufacturers' Convention in Chi
cago was leit in the hands of the chair
man.
JOHN CONNELL'S NOTE.
It Has Caused Twelve Years of Litiga
tion, and Is Still Unsettled.
The Supreme Court has once more sent
the suit of John H. Wise against J. E. P.
Williams and others back to the Superior
Court to be tried. The suit is upon a note
for $2009 46. The case has been three
times before the Supreme Court, and will
now take its fourth session before the Supe
rior Court.
A demurrer was filed to the first com
plaint, and this was sustained by the lower
court. The Supreme Court reversed this
judgment and remanded the case for trial.
After trial judgment was rendered in favor
of defendants, and an appeal was taken
from this judgment and from an order de- !
nying a new trial. These were reversed,
and the cause wasa?ain remanded. Judg
ment was again rendered in favcr of the
plaintiff, and once more it was appealed.
The judgment of the lower court has
just been" reversed for the third time and
a retrial ordered.
The note over which all this litigation
has been set going was originally made by
John B. Connell, who used to sell his wool
through the old firm of Christy & Wise.
He is now dead, and Williams is the ad
ministrator of his estate. The other par
ties in the suit are Council's heirs. The
case has been in litigation about twelve ■
years.
SAYS IT WAS NOT LEGAL
Trustee Chetwood's Charge
Against R. P. Thomas and
Agent Stateler.
He and His Attorney, A. W. Thompson,
Call Upon the Law in Their
Pleadings.
Special Trustee John Chetwood Jr. of
the California National Bank and his at
torney, A. W. Thompson, propose to stand
on their construction of section 3 of the
National banking act of June 30, 1876, as
afterward amended by Congress and ap
proved August 3, 1892, in their litigation in
the United States Circuit Court against
Railroad Agent Thomas K. Stateler.
In their pleadings tiled yesterday they
say that the Comptroller of the Currency
had no legal right to let Richard P. I
Thomas of Berkeley, the "soap king,"
call a meeting of the stockholders on July
6, 1804. It was at this meeting that Mr.
Stateler was made agent.
According to the bill of complaint j
Thomns, who was president of the bank
until \V. K. Vanderslice succeeded him,
originally had 490 shares of stock of the
I face value of $100 each. The bank'? capi- ;
j tal stock was $200.uu0, divided into 2000 |
shares. Thomas, they charge, secured 530 ■
more — or rather 470 net in addition to |
thos" he already held, W. C. Glass. Joseph j
Perkins, Leon Golly, R. W. Andrews. J. ;
G. Pohle and D. E. Dowling each having ;
j ten of the 530 shares— and by the vote of
these 1020 shares, they set forth, he placed
Mr. Stateler in the position of agent.
The reason they give for alleging that
j the action of calling a meeting of the
I stockholders was illegal was because the
bank had not been dissolved, nor had it
forfeited its charter or franchise, and until
such had become the case the Comptroller
of the Currency should not have allowed the
law in question to be applied, they argue.
Altogether, they aver, the judgment
against Thomas' delinquent stock, as ac
| crued, now amounts to $212,000. They
: charge him with "gross carelessness" in
j conducting the business of the bank, ask i
j that Mr. Stateler be enjoined from acting |
as the bank's agent and pray for $5000
damages.
HENDERSON ON TRIAL.
Ten Jnrors Selected to Try the Eastern
Traveling Man for Murder.
The examination of jurors for the trial
of C. B. Henderson for the murder of
Clarence Barr on July 13 last was com
merced in Judge Belcher's court yesterday
morning. The defense will enter the plea
of self-defense, claiming that Barr as
saulted Henderson, or started to do so, in
the Baldwin Hotel bar and that the de
fendant, fearing bodily injury, shot at
Barr and killed him.
G. S. Bennett, jvho was tending bar at
the time of the trouble and who saw it all,
is still missing, so the testimony he gave
before the. Police Court will be read at this
trial. So far ten jurors have been secured.
They are: Eir.il Lowenoerg. Henry A.
Arnold, A. Abraham, John Rourke, John
McKay, C. K. Harmon, J. Bennett, Max
Korming, Joseph Bremer and M. J.
O'Neiil.
Because the Tow Line Broke.

trict Court was brought for $20,000 damages
by Louis A. Pedersen against J. 1). Spreekels &
Brothers for injuries received while the plaint
iff was engaged as mate of the American

ship Crown of England wns ashore on the
island of Santa Rosa (he schooner Danielson
was engaged helping to unload her. and the
tug fearless was used to tew her to and from
the phip. Pederson alleges that his leg was
broken by the snapping of a tow line.
GOODS MADE BY CONVICTS
All the Local Manufacturers
Are Agitated Over the
Situation.
WANT LAWS FOR PROTECTION.
Great Alarm Over the Prospect of
Competing With San Quentin
Jailbirds.
The local manufacturers are considera
bly exercised over the statements of sev
eral well-informed gentlemen who assort
that thousands of dollarsworth of goods
made by convicts in Eastern penitentiaries
are being shipped every month into this
State and sold on the same footing with
free labor goods and goods of home manu-
facture. The selling of these goods in the
East is prohibited by law unless the make
is stamped thereon. As a consequence
California is made a dumping ground for
the stuff, because there is no law to com
pel labeling the goods sent out of the State.
The agitation of the subject has been in
creased by the statements that the Cali
fornia Board of State Prison Directors pur
poses to erect buildings and put several
thousand convicts to work making furni
ture, wooden-ware, willow-ware, etc., that
necessarily will come into active and dan
gerous competition with free workmen and
manufacturers.
Nearly two months ago the directors of
the Manufacturers and Producers' Asso
ciation took up the latter subject and sent
a letter to the Prison Commissioners ask
ing their intentions in the matter. An
answer was received, which was published
in The Call, in which the State officials
disclaimed any intention of conflicting
with free labor and which called particular
attention to the large local consumption
of goods made in Eastern prisons. The
subject was not dropped by any means,
I and recent inquiries led to the belief that
the California State Prison Commissioners
j really intend to manufacture goods that
I will injure free manufacturers.
The subject was again taken up at the
meeting of the Manufacturers and Pro
ducers' Association yesterday.
Director Sonntag of the legislative com
j mittec presented a short communication
upon the manufacture of goods at the
State Prison, and particularly those goods
made by convicts in Eastern prisons and
| sold in California as white-labor articles.
! He says that the Code Commissioners will
! meet in San Francisco during January
and that is the body to which this matter
should be referred. He added that he will
! make an investigation of the published
i statements, that in California the Board of
State Prison Commissioners contemplate
the erection of buildings for the manu
facture of furniture, wooden and willow
ware, etc.
The chairman, M. J. Keller, stated that
j he had been told that a certain large retail
I firm in this City handles nothing but
goods made in Eastern prisons, yet the
firm pretends to deal in none but first
class goods.
He would not mention the firm's name,
but leaves it for the board to look into at a
laterdate, with a view of possibly inform
ing the public of the character of the arti
cles that the house deals in.
Mr. Sonntag supplemented his written
I report by stating that he had heard that
i the Prison Directors are running behind in
their finances and that they aredesirous of
entering into some other lines of manu
facture to make ends meet. The Labor
Commissioner is looking into the matter of
ascertaining what branches of industry will
interfere the least with free labor. Mr.
Sonntag said that it is pretty hard on our
local industries to be obliged to compete
with Eastern prison-made goods and with
California prison-made goods at the same
time. If there is anything that can be
done to remedy and prevent this condition
of affairs the Manufacturers' Association
should be foremost in the movement.
TO ANNUL THE DIVORCE.
Jonephine Amiraux Sloves to Set Aside
the Decree Granted Her Husband.
Mrs. Josephine Amiraux, who was re
cently divorced from Gellar Amiraux, the
actor, because she was so cruel to him, ap
peared before Judge Seawell yesterday
afternoon with a petition to have the di
vorce annulled, on the ground that she
was never summoned.
One of Amiraux' witnesses had sworn
that he met Mrs. Amiraux on the corner
of Sutter and Kearny streets, and had
read her the summons, but Mrs. Amiraux
said he had come to her and told her he
had a paper to serve on her, and that she
then walked away without learning what
the paper was. Her attorney, Louis Bart
lett, advised her that sne had not been
served, so she did not appear at the trial.
There were two ladies with her when the
meeting on Kearny and Sutter streets
took place, and the defendant in the mo
tion announced a willingness to allow her
to call these two friends to corroborate her
story. She declined, however, and the
motion was submitted.
SURRENDERED HIMSELF.
Edward Casey, a Coach-Driver, Wai
the Man Who Kan Over the
Bicyclist in the Park.
Edward Casey, a coach-driver, living at
the Cosmopolitan Hotel, surrendered him
self to Policeman King yesterday after
noon, acknowledging that he was the
driver of the buggy that ran over and
fatally injured John McMenomy, a bicy
clist, in Golden Gate Park Sunday,after
noon.
King took Casey to the City Prison,
where he was booked for manslaughter,
and Judge Campbell, after learning the
particulars of the affair, released Casey on
his own recognizance.
Casey told the Judge that he was taking
a drive in the park with a young lady
friend. He was driving along, the main
drive, and just as a buggy that was coming
in the opposite direction was passing him
McMenomy, who had been following close
behind the but'gy, wheeled in front of
Casey's horse. Before Casey could pull up
the horse had knocked McMenomy down
! and trampled upon him.
Casey says he immediately jumped from
his buggy and assisted to raise McMenomy
from tne'grqund and place him in a buggy
that took him to Dr. Johansen's on Oak
street. He did not know that McMenomy
was so seriously injured, and when he read
of his death in the papers yesterday morn
ing he at once gave himself up to the first
policeman he met, who happened to be
King,

MISS WALLACE RESIGNS.
Superintendent of the Children's Hos
pital Training School for Nurses
Mill Go East.
The board of lady managers of the Chil
dren's Hospital reluctantly accepted Miss
Elsie Wallace's resignation yesterday.
Miss Wallace is well known as the super
intendent of the training school and nurses
of the institution on California street, a
post which she has filled with credit for
nearly four years. Since she assumed
chartie of her department the scope of the
hospital work has increased, the Alexan
der Maternity Cottage, the receiving ward,
district nursing and the services of nurses
at the Pacific Dispensary being among the
additions.
The position of superintendent of nurses
at Roosevelt Hospital, New York, was of
fered her, and she has, in view of the
greater pecuniary inducements offered,
accepted it. She will sever her connection
' with the Children's Hospital at the close
of the year, and leave immediately after.
"NOBBY" CLARKE HARD UP
He Has Given Notice That He
Will Petition for
Insolvency.
It Is Thought to Be an Outgrowth of
the Case Two Years
Ago.
"Nobby" Clarke is hard up once more.
He has given notice that he will file a
petition to be declared an insolvent in a
day or two and his creditors are naturally
anxious. Some say it is a revival of the
insolvency proceedings of two years ago;
that he has been unable to extricate him
self from the financial difficulties which
overwhelm ed him at that time and that
his creditors have become ultra-sedulous
in their attentions and forced him to seek i
protection behind the insolvency laws.
For thirty-five years Alfred Clarke has
been one of the best known characters in
San Francisco. j
That he has made considerable money is
generally acknowledged. In the early
sixties he was a detective, and later on
filled the position of clerk to the chiefs of
police throuirh successive administrations.
While serving the City in that capucity he
is known to have shaved the warrants of
the police officers at high rates ot interest.
It is said that he had as much as $25,000
and $30,000 loaned to the officers on the force
and other City and County officials at
different times. Those who know him
best, however, say he has an uncommonly
warm heart, and that much of his finan
cial embarrassment of late years was due
to his liberal indorsement of the notes of
his friends.
Two years ago, during an insolvency
proceeding, he refused to make a certain
statement required by the court, and was
remanded to the custody of the Sheriff.
At that time he was known to possess con
siderable property.
He is now the possessor of a handsome
residence in Eureka Valley, and it is
openly asserted that much of his property
is in his young wife's name. He has been
following his profession for some time, but
his name is rarely connected with any
legal cases of note.
He will seek release by writ in the
Supreme Court.
HER EIGHTEENTH BIRTHDAY
A Reception in Honor of the Com
ing Out of Miss Phama-
Dickinson.
______ _ _ __
Som e Beautiful Toilets and Decorations.
Nearly One Hundred and Fifty
Guests Present.
#•
A very pretty reception was given by
Dr. and Mrs. W. L. Dickinson in honor of
the eighteenth birthday and coming out
of their daughter, Miss Phama Dickinson,
at the Occidental last night.
The handsome carlors of the hotel had
been set aside for that purpose, and they
were beautifully decorated. Netting had
been placed around the walls, in which
were placed the handsomest of flowers and
trailing vines.
There was no end of roses, chrysanthe
mums, smilax and the rare products of
garden and greenhouse. The effect was
very pretty.
The costumes of the ladies, too. were
very beautiful, and they were varied in
such a way as to make the effect a yet
further pleasing feature. The ladies and
gentlemen constituted in a large part the
early friends of Miss Dickinson. There
were nearly 150 persons present in all.
The floors out into and up and down the
hallway were covered with canvas, so that
when the music struck up there
was a lively scene both in the parlor and
without. The beautiful toilets were ex
hibited in the promenades as well as in the
parlors, where most of the dancing oc
curred.
Refreshments were served in the dining
room, where seats were reserved for the
guests. Light punch, cakes and ice cream
were some of the features^
The affair was in every way a success.
Thomas Bell'g Estate.
Theresa Bell, as heiress to the estate of
Thomas Bell, has filed an answer to, and a pro
test against certain claims upon the estate.

The disease known as varicocele has baffled the medical profession at every turn.
The various attempts to remove it have all proven ineffective, and some of them even
more injurious than the disease itself. The knife, vacuum, compression and massage
have all been tried and all failed, and yet Varicocclc and its large following of wasting
weaknesses can be cured. Varicocele is a congestion of the stagnant blood in the
veins, with considerable distention of the glands. Electricity will decompose this
congested state and drive the stagnant blood into the circulation, relieving the veina
of the weakening strain, at the same time contracting the glands which have crown
weak from the disease, thus curing the whole trouble.
DR. SANDEN'S ELECTRIC BELT,
Recognized by the medical profession as the most scientific method for the application
of the electric current to the body, and backed by many thousanJs of cures of various
nervous and chronic cases, is now acknowledged tho best means of reaching the dread
Wasting disease.
VARICOCELE.
Its power over this disease Is femarkablo. Cures have been completed in one
month, and the worst cases can bo reached' in throe months by this belt. As an evi-
dence of recent results the following will be Interesting:
