MOORE TAKES
WILLIAMS' SCALP.
The Custom -House Inter
preter Is Suddenly-
Suspended.
WAS A BIG SURPRISE.
Reasons Why the Investigation
Before the Collector Was
Cut Short.
INSTRUCTIONS FROM CARLISLE.
The Examination of Inspector Martin
Cieary Will Not Be Continued
To-Day.
There was an air of mystery about the
private office of Collector of the Port Wise
yesterday. It was all owing to the investi
gation into the alleged irregular conduct
of Customs Interpreter Richard Williams.
It was whispered that the interpreter had
been suspended. This impression was
strengthened as the day wore on, and the
mystery deepened.
Williams had been charged by Special
Agent of the Treasury Moore with using
his office as a Chinese immigration bureau.
It had even been said of him that he aided
and abetted in the unlawful landing at
this port of Chinese girls of tender years —
girls who were destined to a life of shame
and degredation in darkest Chinatown.
Whether or not these charges are true has
not been fully demonstrated. Nevertheless
the fact remains that the accused inspector
has been suspended by instructions from
Secretary of the Treasury Carlisle at
Washington.
The investigation into the charges
against Williams was to have been con
tinued before Collector Wise yesterday
afternoon, but when the hour arrived for
the formal opening of the inquisition
there was a perceptible absence of the
chief witness and his attending sup
porters. Special Agent Moore was
promptly on hand. He wore the regula
tion military whisker on his chin and a
Monday-mornine smile of a new brand.
This smile he turned on Chief Clerk
Jerome as he passed through the room of
the latter and entered the sanctum sanc
torum of the head of the department. It
was ooserved before the big door
closed on the major that the Collector
did not even look up from his desk.
\\ hether or not the Collector again tapped
the major on the chest, as he is wont to do,
is another story. It is a story that will
never be told. There is reason to believe,
however, that while the conference was
not satisfactory to both sides it was in a
measure peaceful and even friendly.
While the conference was in progress
Thief Clerk Jerome ventured to whistle
"The Warrior Bold" in the outer office.
This seemed to console the few timid
friends that Major Moore has about the
big brown building, for they at once j
accepted it as a compliment to the special
; ._<nt, who had the courage to beard the
iion in nis den. y 4 'ff3'|
At the conclusion of the conference be
tween Collector Wise and Major Moore no
one in authority wanted to" talk, while
those who were not in authority did noth
ing else but talk.
••Will the investigation in the Williams
case go on to-day?" was asked of Collector
Wi«e.
"There will be no investigation," an
swered the Collector, without looking up
i'rom bis desk. Vs]
'Does that mean that the investigation
ha? been dropped?"
"Ask Major Moore," was the reply.
Major Moore was found at his office in
the lederal building.
"When will the charges against In
spector Williams be investigated?" was
asked of the special agent.
"I don't know," was the response.
' Has the investigation been dropped?"
"Ask Collector Wise," came the reply.
But these officials were unable to keep
the matter a secret. It leaked out during
the day that instructions had been re
ceived by the Collector from Washington
to suspend Williams pending an investiga
tion into the charges preferred by Moore
i v the Treasury Department. This does
away with an investigation before Collector
Wise and Moore has virtually won first
blood in the fight against the Custom
house.
The case against Martin Cleary will not
be continued before Commissioner Hea
cock this morning, as was expected. The
defense is ready to proceed, but Moore has
not got his witnesses together as yet. It
is thought that the case against Cleary is
rather weak and unless Moore makes a
good showing the reflection will be against
him.
The fight between Moore and the Col- !
lector is just beginning to get warm, and :
what the outcome will be is a matter of |
speculation. Collector Wise has a habit '.
of standing by his friends through all I
kinds of weather. The more stormy the j
weather the more steadfast is his friend- i
ship. This is one of the reasons why he!
and Major Moore can never love each j
other. The major has sought the removal
of persons directly under the Collector. '
Ana the more he protested that they must >
be removed the more the Collector insisted
they should remain. Hence the begin- \
ning of the battle that now rages by day I
and night.
District Attorney Foote said yesterday
that he would probably allow the United j
States Grand Jury to investigate the
charges against Cleary and Wong Sam, j
but had not fully made up his mind in the ;
matter. :
INFLUX OF EXCURSIONISTS.
Several Large Parties Booked to Leave
■ for California.
According to announcements now being
made there is to be an influx of tourists
this spring far in excess of anything that
has occurred before.
On the 13th inst. the fourteenth of the
annual pleasure excursions under the
management of C. L. Bornham left Boston
for a grand tour of sixty-two days to in
teresting points in Colorado. California
and intermediate territory. This party
will reach Los Angeles on the 22d inst.,
and the eastbound journey from San
Francisco will commence on March 24, the
intervening time being spent in sight
teeing in this State.
On the same day as the foregoing an
other excursion party under the manage
ment of Nason .v. Durgin will leave Boston
for a tour of forty-one days through Cali
fornia.
No: 7 of the Raymond & Whitcomb ex
cursions will leave New Orleans with
ninety-five people on February 19 for the
trip to California. On the same train will
be a party of eighty, who will make what
is known as the Mexican-California tour.
A month will be spent in Mexico and then
California will be visited.
The participants in the Golden Gate
tour of the Pennsylvania excursions will
leave New Orleans over the Sunset route
on the 19th inst. and arrive at Los Angeles
on the 25th, whence they will do Cali
fornia.
P. E. Richards, the financial' agent of
the Maine Central Railroad, is announced
to leave New Orleans with a party of
mends to-morrow. They will have the
Pullman oar lolanthe tor their special use.
After the 20th the Sunset limited train
will have three standard sleepers attached
instead of two, as Heretofore, owing to the
increased demand for accommodations on
these trains.
MORE FUN THAN FIGHT.
Little Danger of the Chinese High
binder War Breaking Out.
Sergeant McManu?, at the head of the
Chinatown squad of policemen, has no
fear of a war between the opposition high
binder factions. The recent cutting and
shooting scrapes of Saturday and Sunday
nights he believes to be purely personal
difficulties which might arise at any time
without involving the associations to
which the men belong.
Whether it is that the bruiting of the
recent murderous attacks, or that the ex
citement of Chinese New Year is on the
wane, the number of Caucasian visitors to
the Mongolian quarters has diminished
quite notably. At the Chinese Consul-
General's office a Call reporter was in
formed that it was quite unlikely that the
highbinder feud was about to break out.
"As a rule," stated one of the English
speaking attaches, "these shooting scrapes
occur before the holidays or after them.
Seldom has there been any trouble be
tween private individuals over personal
affairs. The consulate has issued no proc-
The Steamer Willamette Coming to an Anchor After Being Steered With Booms From Mendocino to
San Francisco.
[Sketched by a " Call " artist.]
lamation or paper of any kind to remind
the Chinese here that they must keep the
peace. That would be quite unnecessary,
as the law-abiding element is not in need
of such advice and the highbinders would
not heed it. However, we believe that for
a week or two more all of the people of
Chinatown will be too taken up with their
own pleasures to think of fighting."
THE POISON IN ALCOHOL.
The League of the Cross Ad
dressed on the Sub
ject.
Dr. Clinton Delivered an Address
Before a Large Meeting at the
Parish Church.
The St. Paul's parish branch of the
. League of the Cross held a rally last even
ing in St. Paul's Church, corner of
Twenty-ninth and Church streets. There
was a very large attendance, including
junior and senior divisions Of the league,
and parishioners, men and women, so
that the large hall was crowded. The stage
was decorated with American flags, and
amid this patriotic ornamentation were
seated members of the cadet corps and
the senior division.
Peter McCorraick of the executive com
mittee of the league called the meeting to
order, and in a brief speech spoke about
the temperance society and its work. The
opening address was followed by a piano
duet by the Misses Kornmeyer, after
which the main feature of the evening
occupied the attention of the meeting.
This was a lecture by Dr. Clinton on the
effects of alcohol on the human system.
The doctor admitted that alcoholic stimu
lants were used liberally in such diseases
as diphtheria, pneumonia and typhoid
fever to sustain the patient temporarily.
However, if the patient should be a person
accustomed to excessive indulgence in
liquor the chances were that he would
have but faint hope for recovery, since
stimulants would have absolutely no effect
upon his system.
The effect of alcohol on the soft tissues
is shrinkage. Whisky on an empty
stomach absorbs, and leaves the mucous
membrane in a dry condition, thus dis
turbing its natural condition, and indiges
tion ensues. The whisky draws from the
lining of the stomach those- juices needed
for digestion of food. One drink on an
empty stomach is worse that three or four
on a full one. The effect on the vital
organs is to stimulate their functions, and
this condition is followed by depression,
so the excessive use of alcoholism is an
unmitigated evil.
Those who derive benefit from diluted
alcohol taken with food are largely in the
minority. Fully 50 per cent of all cases
of dyspepsia and indigestion are caused by
immoderate use of alcohol. On the liver
alcohol has the effect of an irritant poison.
The tissue is excited inordinately, secre
tion diminishes, and the flow of blood is
lessened. Fully 90 per cent of liver
diseases are caused by excessive indulg
ence in alcohol. The kidneys are simi
larly affected.
The great majority of cases of heart
failure come from the same excesses. The
lungs are not so injuriously affected,
though they are by no means exempt.
The brain is affected more directly than
the spinal chord, though prolonged in
dulgence deranges the whole nervous sys
tem, with the grand finale of delirium
tremens. ' '
The doctor stated that the effects of
alcohol in heredity go to the third genera
tion. No more baneful disease than alco
hoi is handed down to generations. It is a
well-settled fact that drunkenness is trans
mitted from parent to child. The children
of drunkards are more liable to diseases
of the nervous system' than are the chil
dren of insane parents." No mother has j
any more moral right to take a glass of !
beer while nursing her child than she baa
to take a glass of poison. y -C\
Dr. Clinton showed how whisky, !
brandy and gin are made with chemicals, j
and declared that much of the same inn- j
tations as he mixed up on the stage are
used in commerce.
A tenor solo by John Donnelly and a
dialogue between John Brown and George
Maloney were the closing numbers of the
programme. V : . . .
THE SAN FRANCISCO , CALL, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY : 18, 1896.
ALONG THE WATER FRONT.
The Steamer Willamette Broke
Her Rudder Post Off
Mendocino.
STEERED TO PORT WITH BOOMS
Exciting Scene Between a Husband
and Wife at the Ferries Over
a Child.
The steamer Willamette, which got in
from Portland yesterday, was brought
from off the coast of Mendocino under
very unfavorable circumstances. Her rud
i der-post broke, and on several occasions
: Captain Cushman thought he would have
to give it up and drift around until assist
' ance came. When off Point Arena a boat
! was lowered and three men sent ashore to
telegraph for a tuj:. They have not yet
' been heard from, but as the wires along
the coast have been down for several days
the chances are they are awaiting a steam
schooner to bring them to San Francisco.
Steering as well as possible with the
broken rudder and with the assistance of
the sails and two booms which were towed
astern, the steamer was finally navigated
to tho Farallones. There the lighthouse
tender Madrona was sighted and Captain
Cushman signaled for assistance. The
people on the lender did not understand
the signals, and she. went on her way.
Nearing the Golden Gate some tugs offered
their assistance, but Captain Cushman did
not feel like paying the sum demanded, so
he managed to steam in and came to an
anchor off the seawall.
The cargo brought by the Willamette
from Portland is a general one, and every
vessel that has handled it has met with
misfortune, ft was first of all loaded on
the steamer George W. Elder, and a few
hours after she crossed the bar her rudder
post broke, and she is now lying disabled
in the Columbia River. The cargo was
then transferred to the steamer Columbia,
and as she was passing over the bar she
struck and she too broke her rudder-post.
The wheat, oats and canned goods were
then loaded into the Willamette and she
met. the same fate as the other two. "The
only satisfaction I have is the fact that I
succeeded in getting the cargo here," said
Captain Cushman yesterday. "We came
along at a good rate of speed", and the only
thing I was afraid of was" that the rudder
would drop out altogether, as it was only
held in place by the rudder-head. The ac
cident happened last Saturday, and I tell
you I was glad when I drooped anchor in
San Francisco Bay." The Willamette will
discharge her cargo and then go on the
drydock for repairs. It will cost in the
neighborhood of $5000 to fix her up.
Edward Lahue and his wife, Fannie, cre
ated quite ix scene at the ferries yesterday.
The woman ran away from her home in
Healdsburg and took her two-year-old
daughter Bessie with her. Her husband
followed as soon as he heard of her flight,
and finally located her in the Mission.
Yesterday he stole the child and started
for the ferries, with Mrs. Lahue after him.
f n the waiting-room of the Tiburon steamer
she caught him, and begged and prayed
for the child. He refused her request, and
then she began to scream. The other pas
sengers sided with the woman, and Ser
geant Mahoney was hurried to the scene to
quell the disturbance. The husband ex-
Elained that the child was his, and that as
c did not like his wife's mode of life he
was taking the little girl home. The offi
cer said he could not interfere, and just as
the "all aboard" was called the lather
rushed through the gate and disappeared.
Mrs. Lahue called after him, but tie paid
no attention. Then she began crying
again, and finally disappeared in a Mar
ket-street car.
Captain Hooper of the revenue cutter
Corwin has been made commander-in
chief of the revenue fleet of the Pacific
Coast. He will have with him in the Ber
ing Sea the Bear, Rush, Perry, Corwin,
Grant and Wolcott.
Meat Inspectors W. Jordan and J. L.
Rivers have been scouring the water front
of late for any diseased and immature
meat that might come in Dy train and
steamer. Yesterday they secured eight
calves and an old bull that were thor
oughly unfit for food.. The bull was con
signed to Adolp Caillenad of the Califor
nia Market, and the two inspectors waited
all day for him to send his wagon for it.
He did not do so, and finally coal oil was
poured over the rotten mass and it was
carted away. No owner for the veal turned
up either, and it also was destroyed.
Five men of the crew of the revenue cut
ter Bear, whose time expired yesterday,
have practically been driven from the serv
ice. Lieutenant Emery, who issued the
discharges, would give them no recom
mendation, and that debars them from
further service. They were all witnesses
for Captain Healy, and say they are being
persecuted. The matter is to be laid be
fore the authorities at Washington.
PER ALT A-RE A VIS CASE.
Evidence Against Valencia and San
doval to Be Taken Her*.
Andres Sandoval and Jose Ramon
Valencia, charged with conspiracy in con
nection with the Poralta-Reavis land
swindle in Now Mexico, were , before
United States Commissioner Heacock
yesterday for preliminary examination.
The District Attorney maintained that
under the indictment of the court of New
Mexico the defendants must be taken
back, j that they could offer no.: evidence
to attack the indictment and prove their
innocence before the Commissioner other
than that they could produce in the court
where the.indictment was found. . .;
The defense held that it could establish
the innocence of the accused persons, and
declared that the indictment was brought
on improper evidence and that there was
no criminality involved in their acts. The
Commissioner, notwithstanding the in-"
dictment, allowed them to go into, the
evidence, and as the Government was not
prepared to answer the evidence for the
defense a continuance was taken for two
weeks. Thus far all the District Attorney
has to go on is the indictment of the New
Mexico court. . Now; the District Attorney
of New Mexico must present his witnesses.
WOODWARD'S WHISKERS,
Mrs. Woodward Says She "Never Tried
to Burn Them Oft".
, The divorce suit of Melinda Woodward
against frank G. Woodward- was before
Judge Seawell yesterday. Mrs. Woodward
is suing for a divorce on the ground of
cruelty. She alleges that her husband
i used vulgar language to her and struck
I her. At first Mr. Woodward had a com
! plaint on file, in which he also charged
j cruelty, the principal feature of which was
I that his wife tried to burn off his whis
; kers. Mrs. Woodward was questioned on
j this point yesterday, but she denied ever
! attempting' to apply the torch to the luxu
riant growth upon her husband's chin. The
I cross-complaint of Mr. Woodward has
j been withdrawn.
i Mrs. Woodward also asks that some sep-
arate property, which she enumerates, be
set aside for her and also all the commu
nity property. She claims as hers a lot on
Turk street, between Taylor ana Jones,
valued at $24,000, a cottage and lot on
Webster street, between Clay and Wash
ington, valued at $3000, and' property in
Han Diego valued at $1000. The commu
nity property is valued at $20,000.
SPOKE OF MODERN JEWS
Rabbi Voorsanger Addressed the
Baptist Preachers' Con
ference.
Presbyterian Ministers . Discussed "A
Modern Philosopher Worth
Hearing."
Rabbi Voorsanger addressed the Baptist
I Preachers' Conference yesterday on the
i subject of "The Modern Jew." Inci
j dentally he referred to the historical inci
dents for the past 1800 years which have
been instrumental in shaping the charac
ter of the modern Jew.
"It is one of my matters for thankfulness
to-day that I belong to a religion that has
no theology," he said. "There never was
in Israel an authority that could say to the
people you must do so and so or you do
not belong to the church. They never
had a church, as Christians understand it.
| I must believe in God and in revelation,
but in common with every other Jew, I
I possess the right of unrestricted interpre
tation." The speaker described the arti
cles of Maimonides and explained how a
later writer had afterward reduced them
to three— a belief in God, a moral account
ability to God and a belief in revelation.
Reformed Judaism, Rabbi Voorsanger
I said, began about 100 years ago as a purely
natural change. It sprang out of an effort
made to place the Jews en rapport with
the people in the midst of whom they
lived. The address ended with the expres
sion of the hope that "the day will -come
when there will be no Jew, no Gentile
nothing but God to unite the nations of
the earth." • y v ■;*
Presbyterian Preachers.
The Presbyterian Ministerial Associ
ation was addressed yesterday by Rev. T.
F. Burnham of Vailejo on the subject of
"A Modern Philosopher Worth Hearing."
Professor B. P. Browne of Boston was the
philosopher to whom the allusion was
made. The speaker gave a sketch of the
distinguished teacher and author, and re
ferred briefly to his writings, giving a
synopsis of his views as outlined in his
later volumes. One fact stated respecting
Browne's teachings was that he upholds
the enfranchisement of women on the
ground that in order to withhold the bal
lot from them it is necessary to prove
them to be immoral persons or else men
tally weak.
The discussion was participated in by
Rev. Mr. Bevier, Rev. Professor Brown of
Stanford, Rev. Dr. Minton and Rev. Dr.
Noble and other ministers, all of whom in
dorsed the paper. Rev. Dr. Breck, in the
course of the discussion, took occasion in
cidentally to object to a criticism by Pro
fessor Lo Conte on a recent book by Pro
fessor Wat3on. . . . •
Methodist Preachers.
"Methodism and Missions" was the sub
ject of an address made before the Metho
dist Preachers' Association yesterday by
Rev. M. C. Harris. The speaker gave a
hopeful account.of Methodist missions all
over the world, - and showed that ■; in
Sweden the Methodists are exercising a
reviving influence. . ..;•■.
In the discussion Rev. J. Waklburgh
bore witness to the good results which he
considered Methodism had achieved in
Sweden. Rev. C. J. Larsen also spoke to
the same effect. ' '
Very Awkward Indeed.
This Is precisely the kind of mistake a man
makes if he "turns out" on the wrong side of the
road when a vehicle comes toward him. No less
absurd Is the" error of the individual who takes
drastic medicines to relieve his liver. \ That organ

MRS. GALLAGHER'S GIFT
... ..-..■■
Father Denis F. Nugent of St.
Rose's Church on the
Stand.
HOW THE PROPERTY WAS GIVEN
The Question of Undue Influence— Miss
.^Margaret Nugent Will Testify
To-Day.
In the Ellen Gallagher will case yester
day in Judge Hunt's court Father Denis
F. Nugent, pastor of St. Rose's Churcb,
was put on the stand to testify as to Mrs.
Gallagher's gift of $140,000 worth of prop
erty to the Catholic church. Just before
her death in April, 1895, she gave him a
deed of transfer of all her property except
some small bequests to relatives, and the
present suit is brought by those legatees to
recover the money on the ground that she
had been unduly influenced in making the
gift. According to her alleged wishes the
new St. Rose's Churcn on Brannan street,
near Fourth, was to be built from the pro
ceeds, of the transferred property.
In the morning Peter Collins testified to
the effect that Father Nugent had inti
mated -during a conversation that he
(Nugent) had influenced Mrs. Gallagher in
the disposition of her property.
Father Nugent testified that Mrs. Galla
gher had presented him with all the prop
erty and that she was. in perfectly sound
mind and made the gift of her own free
will. She wished to build a new church,
as the people of St. Rose's parish were too
poor to do so. He simply carried out her
behest. Hi was asked by Attorney Joseph
Campbell if he had said that he had so
fortified himself behind the law that his
position in the transaction could not be
shaken.
The witness answered that Calvin Ewing
had come to him in a bland manner to talk
of the Gallagher affair, and that he told
Ewing that what Mrs. Gallagher had done
was perfectly legal in every way and he
did not see how the law could interfere.
Mr. Henley objected to" the phrase
"bland manner" uced in the description of
Mr. Ewing's approach, and that was
ordered expunged from the records. Wit
ness also stated that he was not Mrs. Gal
lagher's spiritual adviser after the division
of the parish in 188(5.
Father Nugent objected to Mr. Henley
calling the bequest a "donation." It was
not a donation, he argued.
"Did you not suggest this gift for the
Archbishop to Mrs. Gallagher?" asked Mr.
Henley.
"I uid not."
"Yet the document was in your hand
writing?"
"It was."
Henley then asked for the receipts which
Father Nugent got from Mrs. Gallagher,
and asked:
"Was any one present when these re
ceipts were signed?"
"No one."
"Should there not have been witnesses
present when ibis woman gave away over
$100,000 to you?"
This question was not allowed, and Mr.
Henley asked :
"Did you ever remind Mrs. Gallagher
that her brother, a man of 90 years, was in
a poorhouse in Ireland?" .'.
The question was permitted, notwith
standing Campbell's strong objection.
"I did not remind her of that."
"Why not?"
--"Because she frequently told me that
she intended to remember her relatives in
accordance with the expressed desires of
her husband."
"Don't you remember telling Peter
I Collins that if it had not been for you he
1 would not have got as much money in
the will as he did?"
"I do not remember it."
"Do you deny that you said it?"
"I don't remember."
"Don't you remember in that same con
versation telling him he would not have
got what he did except it was to evade
the law?"
"I do not remember that either."
"Do you deny you said it?"
"I do not remember it."
The court— You do not deny that nor
admit it?
"I do not remember it. Ido not remem
ber that conversation."
"When you say you do not remember it
you mean that you do not remember using
that particular language?"
"Yes, sir: I do not remember saying
that; most likely I did net."
Mr. Campbell— State what you said to
him. '.■>'- v - *
''I said that his aunt thought he got too
much, but it was far from being too little.
That is about all of it."
Mr. Henley— -That is all that passed be
tween you on that occasion?
"That was the substance of it in a few
words." yy y
(Question repeated) "Don't you remem
ber ever telling him that if it had not been
for you he would not have got as much
money in the will as he did?"
The court— What do you say to that?
"I do not remember ever having told
him anything of the kind."
"Are you prepared to swear positively
whether you did or did not make such a
statement in substance or effect?"
"It is impossible for me to remember
anything that a person says. I cannot
swear positively I did not say it."
Mr. Campbell— What did you say to him
in relation to his aunt?
"I said that his aunt was under the im
pression that he cot too much; that it was
j enough for him at least." y - <
"Is it possible that you could have made
such' a statement— it was done to
evade the law? That he got this $2500 in
the will to evade the law."
"I do not remember making any such
assertion as that. On reflection, I think
there wa^ some talk about that, and I am
under the impression I may have said
that; that she gave him $2500 that it
might appear decent, and that her will
might not be contested. I think there
was some conversation to that effect that
I remember now."
"Did you say in that conversation, or
in any conversation, to Mr. Collins, that
you had anything to do with the giving
of $2300, or withholding it?"
"No, sir; I had nothing to do with the
will at all, and I never told him so."
Mr. Henley desired to put Miss Marga
ret Nugent, sister of Father Nugent, on
the stand, but it was stated that she was a
sufferer from heart disease and could not I
bear the ordeal of cross-examination.
j The attorney was not satisfied and made
a request that she be called to testify this
morning at 10 o'clock, when the case
goes on. __________ ■
