ALONG THE WATER FRONT
Remarkably Smart Round Trip
of the American Bark
Wilna.
HER CAPTAIN EARNED A BONUS
The New Board of Port Wardens Took
Office With Major Harney as ! \'*
President. , J I
The. American bark Wilna covered her
self with, glory yesterday when she com
nleted the round trip between this port
and Nanaitno, B. C, ' in 16 days 7 hours.
This is twenty-four hours better than the
trip of the El well and will stand as a
record for runny a day to. come. After
passing Cape Flattery the Wilna was be
calmed for thirty hours, after which she
caught a fair wind and came bowling along
at steamboat speed. -Sunday last she be
calmed again, and then she caught the
strong northwester that blew all of Mon
day and it carried her right to the bar. All
in all the vessel was becalmed over forty
hours, so her 111.1 down the coast is all the
more remarkable.
During the last three months three of
the vessels managed by W. E. Migholl
have broken , the record, and on each oc
casion the master received a present of
$10: and a suit of clothes. The first one to
do the trick was Captain McLeod. in the
E. K. Wood; then came Captain Ryder's
famous run of 17 1 ays 7 hours in the
E'.well. and now Captain Slater has
eclipsed all previous efforts. Captain
Mighell's agreement with his skip
pers is that if the round trin is
made under 20 days that secures a bonus of
$100 and a new suit of clothes. If they
make it under 30 days they get $50 and a
new suit of clothes.
During the last month or so Captain
Slater has been 'experimenting with the
rig of the "\Yilna. She now carries two
gaff topsails and one immense jib. The
genial master Is so pleased with the inno
vation that in future he intends to recom
mend it to other masters.
The Pacific Coast Steamship Company's
Willamette Valley arrived from Mexican
ports yesterday with the following passen
gers : ;'.;- '. .'•'
Joseph W. Ellsworth, Joseph Phillipps,
Olivia Fontana, E. D. Tucker, Charles Tucker,
E. Romero, Mrs. M. Romero and two children,
Tula Durarz, Josei'a Villa, Margarita Perez, Ah
To, Gresoria V. de Bastida and one child,
Peter Difftir, Mrs. T. Diffur, Eligia Espiriqueta,
Manuela Espiriqueta, lsidoro Ruiz.
She brought a very light cargo, but con
siderable gold and silver ore, which will be
taken to Selby's smelting works to-day.
On her next trip the Willamette Valley
will be known as the Orizaba.
The old Board of Port Wardens retired
• from office yesterday and Messrs. Harnev,
Attwood and Provost assumed control.
Captain Gage, on behalf- of the retiring
board, seated the. new members and the
work of organizing at once began. Major
Harney was elected president and there
was considerable balloting over the
secretaryship. There were a number of
candidates, but J. Harrigan, the incum
bent, secured the position. He has held
the office through three administrations
and a better man for the place could not
be found.
_ When the steamer Hattie Gage sailed for
£arluk yesterday there was an intimation

given by the custom-house officer in
charge that there would be trouble be
fore she got to sea. He reported that
there was considerable whisky aboard that
did! not appear on the' vessel's manifest,
and a search was ordered. ; As the steamer
was ': passing Lombard-street wharf the
revenue cutter Hartley put out after her,
but the Gage did not stop; A race ensued
'and 1 the steamer was overhauled: and
'.taken back' to ; Meiggs wharf. There she
was overhauled and fifteen gallons of
whisky were found among 'the cannerj
men's baggage. It was ■ all ' in- demijohns
and they asserted it was for their own pri
vate use. This did not satisfy the customs
officials, however,? and the stuff was con-:
fiscated. Later ' the Hattie Gage I was ' al
lowed' to proceed to ; sea. - There was con
siderable whisky on. the vessel, but it was
all duly manifested, and the owners of the
vessel thought they were not breaking the
law in allowing the men to take along a
limited Supply for themselves. As there
were only eighteen men aboard there was
not 'a gallon of liquor apiece for a : twenty
day run to Karluk.; ..".•'

GERTIE CARLISLE.
Gustav Walter Arrested for Employ
ing; Her to Sing; at the
Orpheum. *
Gustav Walter of the Orpheum ;sur
rendered : himself at the City Prison yes
terday afternoon, as he heard there was a
warrant out for his arrest for employing a
minor to sing. The warrant was procured,
and, after the charge had been registered
against him, he presented an order for his
release. =
The complaining witness is Frank Hol
brook of the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Children and the minor is
Gertie Carlisle, .the clever little girl who
has been a favorite in the Alcazar, Tivoli,
Orpheum and other places of amusement
since her arrival in the City. '-:-'.
Mr. Walter said he could • not under
stand why he should have been selected
for arrest seeing Gertie had been perform
ing in other daces without interference.
She sang in the East before coming here,
and Elbridge Gerry, the . head of the So-'
ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Chil
dren in New York, had given Mrs. Car
lisle a permit for Gertie to appear on the
stage there. Mrs. Carlisle 'had told him
that she had a permit from the society
here.
There is also a warrant out for the ar
rest of Mrs. Carlisle. ' -
CHARGED WITH FORGERY.
Henry N. Northoff Paid for a
Bicycle With a Bogus
CJieck.
He Is Wanted in Los Angeles on
Charges of Grand Larceny
and Forgery.
Henry Norther Northoff was booked at
the City Prison yesterday morning on the
charge of forgery. The complaining wit
ness : is Thomas H. B. .Varney, proprietor
i of a cyclery on Market street.
A few days ago Northoff purchased a
bicycle from Varney, which he ordered
shipped to San Diego. In payment be
nave him a check for $120 on the Bank of
San Diego, purporting to be signed by
Jesse Grant, son of ex- President Grant.
The net cost of the bicycle was $104 50 and
Northoff received $15 50 in cash, being the.
difference between the amount of the
check and the cost of the machine. Var
ney was a little suspicious of the genuine
ness of the check and did not ship the bi
cycle till he ascertained whether 'it was all
right.;
On Monday Northoff went to the Cen
tral Bank in Oakland and asked the pay
ins teller to cash a check for him. It was
signed 11. N. Northoff and was drawn on
the San Diego bank. The bank officials
asked him to wait for a few minutes and
communicated with the police. Detective
Dennj- Holland went to the bank and
placed Northoff under arrest despite his
protests.
Chief Lloyd put the wires in motion and
received a message from Los Angeles that
Northoff was wanted there for forgery and
grand larceny. He also received a message
from here that Northoff was wanted for
pas-sing the forged check on Varney.
Yesterday morning Detective" Harry
Reynolds |went to Oakland with the war
rant for Northoff's arrest and brought him
across the bay to the City Prison.
Northoff is a well-dressed man of gen-
tleraaniy appearance and he declares that
his arrest is all a mistake, but the police
believe he is a '.'smooth worker" and are
making inquires about him.

The Noted Sportsman Surrenders

HIS CAREER A CHECKERED ONE
The Pain of His Last Hours Soothed
by the Comforting Presence of
His Mother.
Fred Gibson, famed throughout the
State as a sportsman, died in his apart-
FRED GIBSON, THE NOTED SPORTING MAN. WHO HAS JUST PASSED AWAY.
[Drawn from a photograph.] . , . l;' 7
raents at the Carrollton, corner Market
street and Golden Gate avenue, yesterday
afternoon at five minutes after 2 o'clock.
The immediate cause of death was con
sumption.
The body now lies at the embalmer's.and
some time to-day will be shipped to Sac
ramento for interment, where his family
lives, and where a brother and sister,; who
preceded him in crossing the dark river,
are buried. During the last moments of
the sick man his suffering was calmed by
the soothing presence, of bis mother, who
came to this City as soon ,as she learned
that the illness of her son was serious.
About four years ago Gibson was troubled
with blood-poisoning, and it was found
necessary to perform an operation in order
to relieve him. At the expiration of the
operation, three competent physicians,
who remained in constant attention on
him, gave it as their opinion at his bed
side that the hours of his life could be
numbered on the fingers, of one hand.
Such was, the remarkable vitality of the
man, however, that he recovered, but
never again was "strong physically.
Two months ago it was found necessary
to perform another operation, which tool:
place iif the German Hospital of this City.
His weakened constitution was unable to
withstand the strain, an i his friends think
the last operation oniy hastened "his de
cease. __
Fred Gibson began life as a peanut
butcher on one of the Southern Pacific's
lines. His was a checkered career. Though
only 34 years old when death overtook
him, he had seen : more of life in all its
phases than most octogenarians.
For many years he resided in Sacra
mento, but a few years ago a wandering
spirit took passession of him, ami, in com-
Eany with W. C. Cook, the companion of
is boyhood, he went to Soutu Africa to
see if there was an opening in business.
After a lengthy sojourn.- and after passing
through many stirring scenes, his opinion
of that region may best be summed up in
his own language. ''There is no opening
here for any foreigners that come from
America." - 3
Gibson and Cook then made a lengthy
tour : of the Continent, • passing through
Paris, London, Dublin, Berlin and many
other places of interest. c : Two years ago
from the 12th of last January , the two
came to San Francisco and started the
well-known resort, "Our House," on Mar
ket street. Their financial gains have been
heavy. ■„ ■ . * c - __
It is said of Gibson that his word was as
good as his oath. His friends could be
found in any place of prominence in the
State. No pauper was ever . turned away
from his door, and no street-beggar ever
besought alms at his hands in vain.rtV'
Gibson left a widow, Mrs. Delia A. Gib
son; to whom he was married ■". fourteen
years ago in Sacramento. None of ., the
children resultant from this union have
survived. " ,'.-; -
The funeral will be held Thursday.
AULT IS ACQUITTED.
A Jury Decides 1 hat He . Did Not
Beat His "Little Daughter
..-■' Lizzie. .-."' y ■'
Joseph Ault, ex- secretary of the Stan
dard Oil Company.* was acquitted by a jury
in Judge Low's court last evening ofthe
charge of cruelty to his little daughter
Lizzie. ' ':'•"' : . •■/."■
The charge was made that on Saturday,
March 21, Ault struck the little girl several
blows on the face with his closed fist,
knocking two of her teeth down her
throat, blacking her eyes and bleeding her
nose.-- .' ' . ■.."''';.-'-. :''■.-•
The little girl was allowed to testify, but
she said her father ]; never struck her nor
whipped her, and no one had coached her
what to say.
Aristides Pondi, butcher,- 1071 Mission
street, whose shop adjoins the house occu
pied by Ault, testified to seeing the blows
struck and' begging Ault not » to kill the
child. Other witnesses testified as i : to the
condition of the child's face. •
A number of, witnesses for the defense I
testified that the little girl had accounted
'to them for her blackened eyes and swollen
nose by s saying she had been swinging /on'
a ladder in the yard and had fallen, her
face striking against the ladder. Mrs. Ault
testified thai she I pulled the two teeth \ out
of the girl jaw herself as they were loose.

Beginning Thursday, 1 April 2, the ; ; mail
and express for Ukiah and intermediate
points will depart from Tiburon ferry,

on Sundays to 7:30 a. m. |
The Sonoma Valley Express will leave

THE JEWISH SOCIALISTS
Enthusiastic Meeting •at Their
Hall on Folsom
Street. '
Civic and Social Questions Exhaust
ively Discussed by a Number of
Able Orators.
No bonds of race or creed seem to limit
the far-reaching influence of socialism.
Last night's meeting of the Jewish branch
of the Socialistic Labor party, at which
Harris Bernard presided, simply demon
strated that the Hebrew residents of the
City are fully alive to the questions which
are at present commanding the attention
of the thinking world. The hall at 907
Folsom street was crowded with fine
speakers and eager listeners, and interest
was apparent.
John Reynolds, one of the first speakers,
dealt with the civil "question. He con
tended that the perfect citizen should be
able to meet all issues of the day, but the
majority of men, he said, were not capable
of holding their own against smooth jug
glers in speech. The civil question nowa
days was, he said, used to throw dust in
the eyes of the * ignorant. Women, he
thought, might do much good in this de
partment of public life, but he regretted to
see that women appeared to hang back in
the socialistic fight. - ■
Mark Leitens, the next speaker, said
that civilization should cultivate mankind
physically, mentally and spiritually. He
believed that the | present state of things
ignored the last-named requisite, and was
in so far defective. * .■■"■ ,
Comrades Doherty, Hechtmann and
Ratner spoke . in the same strain, Mr.
Hechtmann . inveighing particularly
against the capitalists. He said Mr. Cleve
land was a gcod President for the present
capitalistic regime,. but he believed a new
regime would soon commence.
:'.;.; Before the adjournment the president
called the attention of all present to the
ball to be given under : the auspices of the
society next Sunday night. ..-:.
*' To-morrow; night , the "society will hold
another meeting, at which several" distin
guished orators | are expected to * speak.
The Jewish branch of the Socialistic Labor
party is evidently, in a flourishing con
dition. . .'~,;V . ': ~

ownership of a portion of the southeast
corner at Sacramento and Gough to be
hereafter decided.
The two blocks from Octavia to Laguna,
between Sacramento and Washington
streets, are now undergoing a transform^-"
tion. - Men and horses are at work
leveling tlie western slope. The con
tract for the grading was awarded to Cap
tain John Tuttle for $17,500 by the Super
visors. To get the/grounds into the de
sired condition 50,000 cubic yards of earth
must be removed, 7000 yards of this
being rich loam. Head Gardener C. W.
Love has had this loam dumped on a por
tion of the park, from where it can be con
veniently taken and used as dressing for
the surface when the graders' work shall
have been finished. : I
The work of putting this ground into
condition for a park entails a considerable
amount of labor. The highest portion is
on the line oi Octavia street, where a cut
of eighteen feet must be made at the in
tersection of Octavia and Washington
streets. From there the natural contour
slopes gradually toward Octavia street.
The base of the whole presents the usual
red-rock formation so prevalent in the
hills around San Francisco.
Some blasting must be done on the side
facing Washington street, but to this
operation the neighboring residents have
entered no objection.
Captain . Tattle is desirous of finishing
the work with all possible dispatch, and
to this end he has 100 horses and 200 men
engaged, and he has erected all . the
facilities for feeding and housing both
men and horses right on the ground.
An idea of the value of this : property,
for which there was such a long and bitter
lu-ht, may be seen by the recent purchase
of two 50-vara lots bought by Irving M.
Scott for $90,000. These lots are on the
corners just opposite the western end of
the square.
