The officers and crew of the United

yesterday. Early in the morning a big,
three-masted schooner fouled her, and she
had to be got away. Later the admiral
and officers of the Mexican man-of-war
Zaragoza paid her a farewell visit, and the
usual salute to the Mexican flag had to be
The schooner that ran into the Phila
delphia was the Mary Dodge. She got in
from Kahului, H. 1., last Sunday night,
with a load of sugar, and yesterday when
a breeze sprang up she attempted to sail to
the sugar refinery. The captain would not
accept a tow, and when the tide began to
set him down on the cruiser he was power
less to avert a collision. By the time the i
vessels came together the man-of-war had !
launched her steam cutter, and the
schooner was soon out of her dangerous
predicament. The wind fell light and she
came to an anchor, but at once began to
drag. She brought up on the cable, and
the telegraph people at once hired the tug
Annie and had the sugar vessel moved
again. Then the captain accepted a tow,
and his schooner was moved to the sugar
refinery. The schooner was damaged
about her top hamper, but the cruiser was
only scraped a little.
For some time past Navigating Officer
Ingalls of the cruiser has been dissatisfied
with the anchorage off Clay- street wharf.
One night last month the Philadelphia
broke adrift and went over half a mile I
with the tide before she brought up. An j
appeal was made to the Harbor Commis
sioners to lay down moorings, and that ;
body will do so if the Lighthouse Board j
will help. In the meantime the Philadel- j
phia tugued at her anchors and drifted a j
little every night. The navigating officer
got angry finally, and yesterday, after the
visit of the Mexican men-of-warsmen, the
anchor was tripped and the cruiser moved
up to safe moorings off Folsom-street
The booming of cannon announced that
the official visit from tbe Mexican man-of
war to Admiral Beardslee was over. The
boat in which the visitors arrived lay-to
about 100 yards from the cruiser. The
latter then ran up the Mexican flag and
fired eleven sruns.
The little Mexican launch, with the flag
floating over its stern, the white cruiser,
with the Mexican flajr also fluttering in the
breeze and the stars and stripes at her
gaff, and several vessels in the background,
formed a pretty picture. Then, when the
cannon was fired, phe smoke rose up and
circled around the warship and made her
look almost ghostly in the envelopment.
After leaving here the Zaragoza will go |
for a short cruise down the coast, and will
then return to San Francisco. She will be
here for the Fourth of July celebration,
and may be at that of the raising of the
flag at Monterey. While here the warship
has been thoroughly overhauled at the
Union Iron Works, and she will now be
good for another six months of service.
Some time ago five of her boats went
adrift and only two were recovered, so
that the other three had to be replaced.
"Old Bill" Wartord and Henry Roland
had a row on the water front last Sunday i
that the latter will not soon forget. Both j
men are boatmen, but Bill is in the sere j
and yellow leaf, while Henry is a young i
man. Tbe latter had a quarrel with the I
old man, and was knocked down. He j
pulled Bill down, and began to bite and
scratch, but some of the other boatmen
pulled him off. Half an hour later Roland
followed Warfqrd into a saloon, and then
Bill went for him. He gave his persecutor
such a beating that his friends had to
rescue him and take him home in a wagon.
"Stevedore" Charles Johnson, who has
been on the water front for over forty
years, was in trouble on the front on Sun
day. He has been an attache of the firm
of Piper, Aden, Goodall & Co. for a gener
ation, and on Sunday he got it into his
bead that the windows wanted cleaning.
He borrowed a towel, some soap and water
and a ladder and went to work. He placed
the ladder, as he thought, against the
wooden framework, but it was resting on
the glass. He began to climb, and when
half way up the ladder the glass gave way,
and in a second $25 worth of damage was
Johnson was in despair and he drowned
his sorrow in lager beer. Several hours
later he went crashing through the glass
door of a cigar stand and then he forgot
everything until he awoke in the City
Prison yesterday morning. He sent a
message to Harry Piper and the latter at
once secured his release. Johnson was as
mad its a hornet over his arrest yesterday
and says he is going to report the matter
to the Police Commissioners. He cannot
understand why a man of his forty years
of service on the water front should be
treated so.
There was almost a murder on Goat
Island last Sunday, and in consequence
one of the lighthouse crew is in jail on a
charge of assault to murder. For some
time past Harry Cooper, the cook, and L.
H. Wahrman, the steward, have been
squabbling, and Cooper, wlio is a bit:,
strong man, frequently threatened to "do
up the steward."
Sunday last the trouble came to a cli
max, and a fight was only prevented by
the other men on the island. Wahrman
went to his room to dress for a visit to the
City, and a few minutes later Cooper fol
lowed him. As the steward was benJine
over a bureau drawer to take out a collar,
the cook rushed in and struck him on the
back of the head. Wahrman's head sank
into the drawer and Cooper at once closed
in on him. His neck was thus caught in
a vice and the cook wreaked his vengeance
at leisure. He kicked the half-strangled
man until he was tired, and then let him
drop to the floor. Wahrman lay insensible
for half an hour and then went to bed.
Yesterday he came over to the City and
swore out the warrant, which was served
by the harbor police.

Coroner Refused Possession
of the Property of Miss
Mayne Worrall.
Cablegram Which Says Her
Sister io London Is Mys
tified Too.
Analysis of the Stomach Still Un
completed — Indications of Poison
Are There.
Last evening Coroner Hawkins, accom
panied by Joseph K. Hawkins, who is his
attorney and brother, went to the Palace
Hotel for the purpose of claiming and tak
ing charge of the property of Miss Mayne
Worrall. The thickness of the mystery
surrounding the death of the young Eng
lish woman has been lightened up very
little by the developments so far, and the
Coroner desired to search the baggage for
any information that might be concealed
When he took possession of the body
last Saturday afternoon he supposed there
would be no dispute concerning his right
to the baggage when he got ready to take
it away. But when he called at the Palace
last evening Assistant Manager Warren
refused to allow him to take the baggage.
The reason for this is that Mr. Warren
wants to be positive that the hotel com
pany would De in no way liable in giving
up the young lady's personal effects.
Coroner Hawkins and his attorney then
made a formal demand for the property.
Mr. Warren exprassed a desire to consult
his attorneys, and promised to let the
Coroner know later what his final decision
was. The Coroner waited at his office till
11:30 last night, but no word came from
Mr. Warren.
Attorney Hawkins said that this morn
ing he would take legal steps to compel the
hotel to give up the property, if he could
not get it otherwise. And this is why a
search of the young lady's effects is stopped
at the present time.
The baggage comprises a flat trunk full
of dresses, underclothing, etc., a hand
satchel which contains comb, brush,
toilette articles and a half-used package of
Virginia Brights cigarettes, an inexpen
sive brand, notwithstanding the reputed
wealth of the young lady.
There are also some letters in the satchel,
but the Coroner was not permitted to
peruse them.
Inspection of her room has disclosed the
fact that Miss Worrall was very fond of
cigarettes. The drawers of her bureau
contained many cigarettes.
Miss Worrall's jewelry is locked up in
the hotel safe.
Dr. P. W. Nathan, acting autopsy physi
cian at the Morgue, has reached the con
clusion that Miss Mayne Worrail came
to her death from a poisoii of a non-cor
rosive character.
He made an examination of all the or
gans of the body, and found there was no
lesion. The stomach was taken out and
preserved for chemical analysis, and the
brain and spinal cord kept for micro
scopical examination.
It was at first thought that Miss Wor
rail died from cigarette poisoning, but the
condition of her heart did not warrant
sucfi a conclusion. It will be several days
Defore Chemist Morgan can finish the
chemical analysis of the stomach.
No action in the matter has been taken
by the police, and will not until the analy
sis is completed, and not then unless the
report of the chemist warrants it.
A Dispatch From London.
LONDON, Eng., June 8. — On receipt of a
cablegram announcing the sudden death
in the Palace Hotel in San Francisco of
Miss Mayne Worrall of Chester Lodge.
Gilston road, South Kensington, London,
Saturday, a representative of the United
Press called upon Mrs. Hyde, a sister of
the deceased lady, at her residence in the
Hyde Park mansion.
Mrs. Hyde informed the reporter that
Miss Worrall was of a bright and happy
disposition and entirely free, so far as she
knew, from care. Only yesterday she had
received a letter which her sister had
written to her tbe day before she sailed
from Sydney, N. S. W., for San Francisco,
on board the steamer Alameda. In the
letter Miss Worrall made a number of in
quiries concerning family affairs and inti
mated that she was in excellent health
and high spirits.
Mrs. Hyde could not conjecture any
reason why Miss Worrall should have
died from the effects of poison, as alleged,
self-inflicted or otherwise.
G. H. Umbien * Co. Sell the Old

A Movement On Foot to Consolidate
All Those Engaged in Clothes

at Academy Hall, 927 Mission street, last
Tne report of the executive committee
of this branch, recommending the holding
of a mass-meeting on July 12 for the con
solidation of all the hands engaged in the
tailoring business to meet and take final
action, was adopted.
The Effect It Produced on the
Federal Inspector of
He Disobeyed an Order of Court That
He Should Not Even Speak to
His Wife.
A revolver in the hands of a woman
with a determined look upon her face
frightened Richard S. Williams, inspector
of Chinese for the customs department,
yesterday morning.
Some time ago Mrs. Williams com
menced an action against Williams for
divorce on the ground of cruelty, and
upon the representations Judge Seawell
made an order that, while the suit was
pending, Williams should not interfere
with or molest his wife, nor even speak to
Yesterday morning Mrs. Williams, in
company with the Misses Runge, was in
a store at Powell and Greenwich streets,
when Williams approached and expressed
a tiesire tn talk to his wife.
"I told him," said Mrs. Williams, "that
1 did not want to talk to nim or have any
thing whatever to do with him, because he
was armed. He said that he knew he was.
but that he did not want to harm me.
One of the young ladies with me thought
that it might be the easiest way out of the
matter to hear what he had to say, so I
asked him what he wanted. With that
he caught hold of my wrist, when Miss
Hattie Runge went for an officer and re
turned with one. Williams tnen released
me, and the officer suggested that in com
pany with my friends I get on a car that
was approaching.
"We did so, and as the car started Wil
liams ran after and boarded it. So did the
officer, who rode along a distance of three
blocks, when he left and "Williams ap
proached me again and caught hold of me.
When the car reached Sacramento street
he pulled me off the car, but at that mo
ment a gentleman came up and made him
release me, after which he went away, i
attempted to board the car again when
Williams seized me by the neck, and to
save myself I took out an old revolver I
had with me and pointed it at him, when
He turned deadly pale and backed away. I
and my friends then got away. When he
caught me by the neelc he said he wanted
roe to go to a Mrs. Ferry, and that he
would make me go there."

Employes of the Pacific
Carriage Company
Quit Work.
Not a Living in $125 a Day
When They Have to Bear
Have Readily Secured the Indorse
ment of the Company's Best-
Paying Customers.
The drivers for the Pacific Carriage Com
pany went out on a strike last night at 5
o'clock because of a reduction of wages
from $1 50 to $1 25 a day.
They had expected the cut would be de-
I clared and were ready with a petition
! which they submitted to the company's
best customers, who readily agreed to
stand by them and not patronize the com
i pany's coupes or carriages while the re
' duction should be maintained. Three of
! the largest undertaking firms, which in
themselves are the mainstay of the car
riage company's business, have given
their support to the striking drivers, and
several of the largest cafes and restaurants
are already pledged to aid the strikers'
Twenty-five men, including ten extras,
! are affected by the strike. Only two regu
i lar drivers have remained for duty.
The drivers say it was hard enough to
j make a living on $1 50 when they were
I compelled to pay for all breakages, make
\ good bad bills and furnish their own
liveries. On $1 25 they declare they can
not do this and. make a living.
One of them, speaking of tne matter last
night, said that the drivers are expected
to supply themselves with ariving-coat,
silk hat and kid gloves and present a neat
! appearance. In addition to this expense
j item to be found out of their meager
wages they must make good the fares left
unpaid by unscrupulous customers who
often leave the carriage waiting in front of
a saloon while they retreat by the rear
A majority of the strikers are said to be
men with families.
Early in the evening a number of men
in sympathy with the striking drivers
gathered about the three carriages at the
ferry and hooted at their drivers, calling
them scabs, but the striking drivers de
clared that they took no part in the
demonstration. Some of the enthusiasts
even went so far as to attempt to overturn
the carriage driven by a man whose per
sonality made him particularly distasteful
to those who stood out for restored wages.
The police, however, interfered and pre
vented further disturbance.
Oliver Hinkley, superintendent of the
Pacific Carriage Company, made no pro
vision last night for new drivers, nor had
he said anything about an agreement with
the strikers^
Court of Appeals Gives Them the
Preference Over Common
By tbe Decision Rendered It Ts Safe
for One Bank to Loan Money
to Another.
The United States Court of Appeals, i
Judges Hawley, Gilbert and Ross on the I
bench, handed down an important deci
sion yesterday affecting th* liability of one
bank to another in the event of failure.
The title of the suit as it appeared in the
appellate court was "George B. Blanchard, j
receiver of the First National Bank of j
Whatcom (Wash.), vs. the Commercial j
Bank of Tacoma." By the decision just
rendered banks are made preferred cred
Some months ago the First National i
Bank of Whatcom was placed in the hands I
of a receiver, George B. Blanchard being
named for that position. Four months
prior to this act the Whatcora bank bor
rowed $10,000 from the Commercial Bank
of Tacoma, agreeing to return the same j
within twelve montlis, with 10 per cent
The crash came, however, before that
time and the Tacoma people found them
selves simply one of many creditors.
Later, on the advice of counsel, they in
stituted suit against the receiver of the
defunct institution to recover the amount
loaned. The case was tried in the United
States District Court and a judgment ren
dered in favor of the plaintiffs. Receiver
Blanchard appealed the case on the
ground that it made preferred creditors
of the successful litigants. The Court of
Appeals reviewed the deliberations of the
District Court, returning the decision
already mentioned.
The importance of the decision is found
in the fact that heretofore a bank loaning
money to a sister institution has in the
event of the failure of the borrower been
compelled to take its chances with com
mon creditors, depositors, etc The con
clusion just reached, however, makes
every bank perfectly safe, so far as money
loaned to each other is concerned.
The opinion was read by Judee Hawley
and concurred in by Judges Gilbert and

will be eighteen booths, representing as
many different nations. The ladies and

in appropriate costume.
Single admittance -will be 25 cents, and

Tickets will be sold only at 7 Van Ness

A Delightful and Novel Picture Enter-
talnment Given at Metropolitan
Hall Last Evening.
The audience t!i at saw "Miss Jerry" at
Metropolitan Hall last evening enjoyed a
most exquisite treat. It was a novel enter
tainment consisting of a series of rapidly
changing pictures thrown upon a darkened
screen, and the story they tell, given by
Miss Carrie Louise Ray, a pretty young
lady with a sweetly modulated voice.
The lady of the pictorial features of the
play is a Miss Geraldine Holbrook, a re
porter, and her interviews are tiie theme
of the story. As the scenes dissolve into
each other before the audience Miss Ray
speaks all of the characters, producing an
effect both realistic and pleasing.
Between the acts Miss Don M. Cann
sang several songs in one of the sweetest
contralto voices ever heard in San Fran
cisco. Her tones were smooth, full and
clear and her manner simple and charm
ing. The entertainment is under the
management of Frank F. Miller.
"Miss Jerry" will be repeated at the
Metropolitan Temple to-morrow and
Thursday evenings.
Another Victory Added to the Many

Captain F. P. Gilbert, in the heavy sea
that was on, was very creditable.
The America is a very shallow and a
very light boat, her entire weight being
scarcely more than the weight of the lead
in her rivals' keels. She das established
an enviable record, nevertheless, having
won every race she ever entered. She was
the winner, it will be remembered, of the
I Puritan miniature yacht race.

Tour True Condition Can Be Told by
This Most Infallible Means.
The face is a true index to the state of the
health and a person's looks will always show
when anything serious Is the matter. For in
stance, the signs of a run-down system are
plainly indicated by wrinkled brows, a pale or
sallow complexion, dullness of the eyes, bad
breath, dark circles under the eyes, twitching
of the muscles and a tired, miserable expres
There are thousands of men and women who
bear these signs of ill-health in their faces. We
meet them in the street", in the cars, at church
and elsewhere. All of them show the imprint
of sickness, unhappiness and misery. Ask
them if anything ails them, ani in most cases
they will tell you they suffer from tired feel
ings, strange sensations, dyspepsia, constipa
tion and loss of vitality.
But is there no way for such people to change
their sickly appearance into looks of health
and vigor? Yes, but not without help. Nature
requires and must have assistance. The sys
tem needs stimulating, strengthening and
building up. How? Simply by the use of a
pure, medical stimulant, and for this purpose
there is nothing better than pure malt whiskey. .
Leading physicians and scientific men hnve
declared this fact and it has also been proved
by experience that no whiskey is so pure and
strengthening as Duffy's pure malt. It stimu
lates healthfully, fet-ds the wasted tissues,
quickens the circulation and invigorates the
whole body. All grocers and druggists keep
Duffy's pure malt, but in purchasiug see ihat
yon get no inferior imitation. Accept only the
genuine, for nothing else can produce the
same effects.
