Three vessels started on a coast race be
tween this port and Puget Sound yesterday
morning. They were the bark Dashing
Wave, barken tine Retriever and the
schooner W. F. Jewett. The Retriever is
a fast craft and the Jew«tt is known to be
a sea-scorcher. The Dashing Wave is an
old bark that has lived long enough to
have outlived her usefulness, but she can
go and will show her old rusty heels to a
younger ship on the least provocation. So
there will be considerable cracking on sail
and straining of braces to pull into the
Sound first.
Sunday visitors to the war vessels in the
harbor appear to increase in numbers, and
yesterday several hundred persons went
out to the Philadelphia.
Two rival tugs, tue Belvedere and the
Ethel and Marion, made regular trips
from the slip near Washington-street
wharf until the Stockton steamer Mary
Garratt came in and her huee hulk filled
up the tug's landing place at the side of
the float. Dominick Conn of tne Ethel
and Marion hastened to find a new place
where he could taue aboard his passengers ;
then thinking there was no other landing
space for his rival, notified the harbor
police officer that the other boat was using
, the front of the float, which tugs are not
permitted to do.
The scheme worked well and the Belve
dere was ordered away. But her captain
appealed to the mate of the Garratt and
succeeded in having the big steamer
backed sufficiently to let the Belvedere,
which is a little craft, squeeze into a land
ing. The other and larger beat could not
do so and was obliged to go out of busi
ness, leaving the small craft to scoop the
Since the picnic season began a gang of
pickpockets have been slipping the light
fantastic finger among other people's val
uables, and the harbor police have been
putting in the Sunday mornings and even
ings camping on their trails.
Yesterday morning Officer Shaw arrested
James Hunter, who is said to be one of the
gentry. He was not caught in the act of
robbery, but not being able to satisfacto
rily explain his object for being there he
was taken in on a charge of vagrancy. The
officers intend to arrest every idle and dis
reputable character found around the pic
nic crowds.
The American bark Holliswood is on the
drydock getting recalked and repaired

Commanders in the Police Department
Who Are on the Sick List.
Several of the men connected with the
Police Department have been "under the
weather" lately, suffering from various
causes, all of sufficient graveness to con
fine them to their beds.
The first to vacate his desk was Captain
L. H. Kobinson ot the Central station,
who has charge of the City Prison. This
official was compelled to hang up his uni
form and don a comfortable house wrap
per instead. His ailment was that of a
monster carbuncle, which took possession
of his neck and made him feel miserable.
The next to yield to home and medical
treatment was lieutenant Fred L. Esolua
of the California-street station. His mal
ady was pronounced nervous prostration,
superinduced by overwork and general
anxiety for the welfare of his men. He is
now at the springs.
The last to report off was Lieutenant
Daniel Hanna of the Southern station.
His ailment was an attack of pneumonia,
which at one time threatened to be seri
ous, but medical attendance and good
nursing have succeeded in bringing him
out of his illness.
The three popular officers are convales
cent and may be seen harnessed to duty
in the course of a week or so.

The poolroom question, which was so
extensively agitated in Sausalito a year
and a half ago, has azain bobbed up in the
town of villas, and if present indications
Marshal Creed of Sausalito, Who Will Enforce the Anti-Poolroom Ordinance.
do not fail, before the end of this week
there is likely to be an interesting collision
between certain poolroom men of this
City and the authorities across the bay.
The former have been stealthily making
preparations for setting up in business at
Sausalito, and few, outside of the initiated
on Water street, are aware of the interest
ing prospects ahead.
The majority of the residents of Sausa
lito are resting quietly upon the assurance
that the anti-poolroom ordinance, passed
a year ago last September, protects them
entirely from the visits of the poolroom
men who were driven out at that time.
This ordinance, which was modeled upon
the San Francisco ordinance, provided as
Prohibiting All Persoks From Engaging in
Selling Pools or Bookmakino, or Making
Bets or Wagees on Horsk Races Wherein
Monet or Other articles of Value are
Stakes or Pledged.
The Board of Trustees of the town of Sausa
lito do ordain as follows:
Section 1. No person, upon any trial or con
test of skill, speed or power of endurance, be
tween horses, shall within the towu of Sausa
Sell any pool or pools, or make up any book,
list or memorandum for or on which money or
other article of value shall be received or
entered up, listed or written, or receive any
money or other article of value as a stake or
pledge upon the happening or non-happening
of any event.
Sell, issue or dispose of any ticket, certificate
or other evidence of payment, on which shall
be inscribed, written or printed any number,
name, word or mark, or anything to designate
the choice selected, received or accepted by
any other person to entitle or enable the said
person holding the said ticket, certificate or
other evidence of payment, to gain or lose on
any contingent issue.
Receive any money, or anything representing
money or any article of value, as a be tor hazard
upon the event of any contest or contingent
issue, or as a stake or pledge between two or
more parties, and disburse the said money or
any portion of the said money, or anything re
presenting money or other article of value upon
any representation or condition, or in con
formity to or with acy express or tacit under
standing or agreement.
Sec. 2. Iso person shall allow or permit any
minor to participate or be interested in any
poo Lor book, as aforesaid, or be present at any
time or place where the sale of pools or the
making up of any book is carried on or con
Sec. 3. No person, upon any trial or contest
of sJcill, speed or power of endurance between
horses, shall purchase or acquire for money,
or anything representing money, or any arti
cle of value or any other consideration, any in
terest in or upon the event of any such trial,
or contest, or contingent issue, or place or de
posit any stake, wager, hazard or pledge be
tween two or more parties of money or any
thing representing money or any article of
value in or upon the happening or non-hap
pening of any event or contingent issue.
Sec. 4. No person shall knowingly lease or
rent or allow to be occupied or used any build
ing, structure, room. Apartment, place or any
premises whatever for the purposes as specified
and recited in section 1 of this ordinance.
Sec. 5.' Every person who shall violate any of
the provisions of this ordinance shnll be
deemed guilty of misdemeanor, and upon a
conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine
of not more than $300 or by imprisonment of
not more than three months, or by both such
fine and imprisonment.
Sec. 6. This ordinance shall take effect and
ba in force on and after its passage.

At the time of the adoption of this ordi
nance several others were suggested,
among them being an ordinance so sweep
ing in its language that it would have
prohibited even church fair grab-bags.
The present ordinance was deemed moat
satisfactory and met with but slight oppo
sition. The poolrooms at this time were
running and no attempt was made to
close them. Many who objected strenu
ously to them, when urged to prosecute
the meo, or even to go with the Marshal
as witnesses to aid in convicting them,
were unwilling to do so. Rev. Mr. Miel of
the Episcopal church led in the crusade
against the poolroom men and was gener
ally supported by the people on the hill,
who are popularly supposed to constitute
the elite of Sausalito society.
Previous to the passage of the ordinance
the poolroom men had offered to pay a
considerable amount of money to tiie
town to be allowed to conduct their busi
ness. A license might have been given
them at that time by the Trustees were it
not for the strong opposition of certain in
dividuals. The general feeling was not
very strong against the poolroom men. It
had been predicted that a noisy drunken
crowd would come over to Sausalito and
would make it unsafe for a lady to travel
upon the boat they frequented. On the
contrary, however, they actoa very quietly,
were sober, and attended strictly to their
business. Again, they spent considerable
money in tbe town, so the men doing
business down on the flat near the water
front were by no means averse to their
At the end of the season, however, the
poolroom men left and have since re
mained away. Since tne passage of the
ordinance above leferred to it would be
impossible for the Town Trustees to license
them without repealing the ordinance.
This they are*not disposed to do, for to re
peal an ordinance which they had unani
mously passed would place them in a very
queer light with the people of the town.
The ordinance then, as far as the Trustees
are concerned, must be observed. Whether
as a matter of fact it will be is a matter yet
to be determined.
According to authenticated rumors two
diffeient crowds intend to open poolrooms
in Sausalito within a few days. Messrs.
Breer, Huffmann and others have been
making preparations to open an establish
ment in the Sausalito Hotel, or the "lower
hotel." as it is called to distinguish it from
the El Monteon the hillside, both oMrhich
are kept by J. E. Siinkey. The parapher
nalia necessary for the operation of the
poolroom will" be taken over from San
Francisco to-day.
The intention is to begin business on
Wednesday next. Marshal Creed, how
ever, declares that the ordinance shall be
obeyed, and consequently an interesting
collision may take place between him
and the visitors.
If arrested the poolroom men will be
brought before Recorder Pryor. When
seen yesterday by a Call reporter as to
what tie should do with tnose who should
be arrested, Judge Pryor had nothing to
say, "Inasmuch as the case would come
up before me," he said, "I do not consider
it proper to have anything to say at pres
ent." Through Judga Pryor's courtesy a
copy of the ordinance above mentioned
was obtained, but further than this he
was entirely non-committal.
An interesting rumor in connection
with the intention of Breer & Huffmann
to open a poolroom in the Sausalito Hotel
is that Billy Harrison of this City also in
tends to start an opposition establishment
at the Buffalo Hotel, half a block down
the street. Harrison, who was engaged in
similar business in Sausalito before the
prohibitory ordinance was passed, and
who is quite popular in the town, is said
to be waiting for the crowd at Siinkey'a
Hotel to begin business and delaying the
beginingof his own enterprise until he sees
the outcome of the opposition venture.
He is hoping, it is said, that they will be
arrested and driven ont of business and
thus leave the field open to him.
Thus the matter stands at present. The
Board of Trustees, consisting of Messrs.
Dickinson, Bruce, Ambiornson, Miller and
Sperry, is supposed to De in favor of en
forcing the ordinance. They have in
structed Marshal Creed to do his duty and
he declares that the ordinance shall be en
forced. It is believed, however, that if ar
rested the poolroom men will demand a
jury trial, and in that event it is quite
probable that they will be acquitted, the
usual result in Sausalito of trials by juries,
which are necessarily composed for the
most part of "men on the flat," having been
A curious coincidence is that the pro
posed outbreak of poolrooms will occur
about the same time as the closing of the
City racetracks.
Attractions That Are Announced by the

Residence of Martin Schnei
der Entered by
Two Men.
Two Watches, Five Rings, a
Gold Button-Hook and
Money Stolen.
The Burglars Expected to Find Va'u
able Wedding Presents but
Were Disappointed.
The residence of Martin Schneider,
shirtmaker, 330 Hsyes street, was entered
by burglars on Saturday night and a lot of
jewelry and other articloß was stolen.
The family left the house about 6 o'clock
to visit friends and did not return till
close upon midnight. As soon as they
entered the house there was abundant
evidence of the fact that burglars had
been very busy there during their absence.
Bedroom doors that were locked as a
matter of precaution had been forced
open with a jimmy and the bedclothes
and contents of bureau drawers were scat
tered over the floors. Nothing had es
caped the vigilant search of the burglars
for plunder.
The parlor and dining-room had also
been thoroughly ransacked, and in their
haste the burglars had broken several
valuable pieces of bric-a-brac.
A hasty examination showed that
among the articles missing were two lady's
silver watches, gold ring witn sapphires
and pearls^gold ring with large emerald,
gold ring with turquoise, chased gold ring
with the initials "T. E. S." engraved on
the inside, plain gold ring, gold button
hook with three stones and $15 in money.
Entrance had been effected by forcing
open the cellar door in front with a
"iimmy." The door was fastened with a
padlock. The burglars passed through
the cellar and out of tue rear door, which
was left open, as there is no means of ac
cess to the rear of the house. They got
onto the porch and forced open a window
on the first floor and the rest was easy.
There was a wedding in tbe house about
a week ago and it is thought that the
burglars, knowing this fact.liad expected
to find a lot of valuable wedding presents,
which accounted for their wholesale
search of tte premises. Fortunately the
wedding presents were not there. They
had been removed to the home of the
bride and groom the day previous.
A lady who lives opposite saw two men
leaving the house about 9 o'clock by the
front door. Each was carrying a bundle
under his arm. She thought it strange at
the time, but the idea of burglars never
occurred to her. Owing to the darkness
she was unable to give a description of the
two men. It ia thought that they belone
to the Hayes Valley gang of thieves, and
they had been watching for an opportunity
to break into the house, expecting to find
the wedding presents.
The burglary was an exceptionally dar
ing one, as that portion of Hayes street is
much frequented with pedestrians,particu
larly on Saturday nights. They must have
forced open the cellar door when for a mo
ment the coast was clear.
The police have been notified of the
burglary, and every effort is being made
to arrest the two men.
