Both Vessels Frequently Over hauled but No Proof of Guilt Found. SAILING OF THE ALAMEDA. Nat Goodwin's Comedy Company Drew a Big Crowd to Folsom-Street Wharf. The otter-hunting schooners Herman and Edward E. Webster, according to latest accounts, are having lively times of it in Bering Sea with the revenue cutter Rush. They have been chased time and again and on several occasions they suc ceeded in getting away, thus saving an overhauling. When they did heave to in response to guns fired from the revenue cutter it was alwas found that the schoon er's papers were all right and that there . was nothing contraband aboard. The revenue officials are keeping a bright lookout on both schooners and if they are caught an example will be made of the owners and crew. According to reports both the Herman and Webster have done remarkably well. They have secured quite a number of otter skins, but every time they have been over hauled in forbidden territory there has not been a skin found on either. The revenue officials think the skins have been cached and also assert that the crew of the two schooners are trading with smuggled liquor. Whether any of these charges are true remains to be seen, but the fact is that the Rush is constantly on che lookout for boft- schooners, and a race between the three is almost always on the tapis. With a strong fair wind the schooners have a good chance of holding their own. The bet ting on the water front is that both vessels will be seized before the season is out. A. P. Lorentzen, the agent of the two schooners, is indignant over the idea of any one thinking his schooners are poach ing. He insists that they are out on a legitimate otter-hunting cruise, and that no such thing as "liquor" ever entered into any of the captains' transactions. That the vessels have been overhauled and nothing found wrong In either their manifest or cargo is strong presumption that there is nothing wrong, but then otter skins are worth nearly $300 apiece, and the Rush is constantly on the track of both schooners. Quite a number of people were down to see the Oceanic Steamship Company's Alameda off for South Sea Island ports yesterday. She was loaded to her full carrying capacity and had, for this time of the year, an unusually large number of passengers. Among them was Nat Good- j win and his comedy company. Blanche Walsh, who was said to have withdrawn, was among the number, and, with her mother, was prominent on the forward deck as the steamer moved away from the dock. As the Alameda got under way the tug Vigilant was also brouuht into requisi tion. She had been chartered by -the theatrical people and accompanied the oig steamer to the heads. As the two steamers passed Fort Point Mr. Goodwin, in pantomime, made a vain attempt to get the captain on the Alameda to stop the ship, and, with one hand on his throat and the other pointed to the Cliff Hous«, attempted to make the crowd on the tug understand that he wanted them to take a farewell drink. Among those on the Vigilant were Mel ville Marks and Miss .Gertrude Elliott of the Columbia Theater, George Lask of the Tivoli. M. Clarlc of the Frawiey Company, HugoToland, "Charley" Morel, T. Daniel Frawiey and others. The Goodwin com pany will be gone about five months and during its stay will produce "A Gilded Fool," "The Prisoner of Zenda" and "In Mizzoura." Among the other passengers who sailed [ on the steamer were Mrs. Charles M. Shortridge and her daughter, who are bound for Hawaii on a vacation. Some years aeo Mrs. Shortridge visited the Par ! adise of the Pacific with her husband and the trip was such a thoroughly enjoyable one that she has determined to revisit the | country. Colonel J. H. Soper and P. I Soper also sailed for Honolulu and United States Consul-General W. Churchill and wife went to Apia, Samoa. The Harbor Commissioners held a short | session yesterday, but outside of passing j the weekly bills no business or import i ance was done. Commissioner Cole is ex pected back from St. Louis next week, and then many matters that have been in abey ance will be taken up. The Port. Townsend Branch Hydro uraphic Office reports the following: New rock off Discovery Island. — Captain J. T. Walbran of the Dominion Government steamer Quadra has examined and fixed the position by sextant angles of an uncharted rock off the south side of Discovery Island. The rock lies between the fifth and tenth fathom line on British admiralty chart 977, outside of all dangers marked on the chart, and bears from Sea Bird Point south by west % west, westerly (magnetic), south 43 deg. west itrue), distance I 4% cables. The rock is marked by kelp and | has a depth on it at low water of 1J 2 ' fathoms. There is deep water, 9 fathoms, close south ward of the rock, and on the east and west sides of it 8 and 9 fathoms respectively, but j shoal; ground to the northward, there being depths in that direction of 4, 2}^ and 5% ! fathoms as far as the tilth- fathom line. The schoolchildren of Tiburon are to have a good time to-day. Ex-Judge Hay- I den and others have provided an outing for them at El Campo and launches will convey them to the popular grounds. The ! 9 a. M. boat from this side will bring over : all visitors, and, as Judge Hayden is at the i head of the affair, an enjoyable time may be expected. The gasoline launch Minerva that came down from Seattle on the Umatilla was fitted out at Folsom-street wharf yester day. She is a very handsome craft, but is too deep by the stern to ever make much speed. The Minerva was built by the peo ple who built Fair's yacht, the Lucero. Y. H. C. A. Excursion. The eleventh annual excursion under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian Asso ciation to Hotel del Monte, Monterey and Pa cific Grove/will leave San Francisco Friday morning, July 3, Third and Townsend streets station at 7 o'clock, Valencia-street station at 7:10. Special train will also return the same day, leaving Pa cilic Grove at 4:25 for the ac commodation of those desiring to come buck Friday; but the tickets will be good for seven days, up to and including July 9, which will give all excursionists the opportunity of wit nessing the grand celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the raising of the first Ameri can flag recognized in California, which will take place at Monterey during these days. Suit Against a Kank. Susie ana Henry Mayer have sued the Mutual Savings Bank of San Francisco for $3200. It seems that the Mayers executed a promissory note for that amount, and also a mortgage on (some real estate, to secure payment for the note and delivered the paoers to the bank on June 23. The money was to have been paid THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 1896. The United States Revenue Cutter Rush Chasing the Otter-Hunting Schooners Herman and Webster in Bering Sea.

The Central Trust Company Seeks to Gain Control of the Nevada Railroad. The Central Trust Company of New York began suit Wed nesday in the United States Circuit Court against the California and Nevada Railroad Company for fore closure of a mortgage held by them and the appointment of a receiver. C. K. King, recently appointed receiver as the result of the suit of Charles H. Smith to have certain bonds declared illegal, is also made a party to the proceedings. It appears from the complaint that in 1884 the railroad company determined to borrow $5,000,000 for the purpose of com pleting the road. An issue of 5000 bonds of a par value of $1000 each was accord ingly authorized, the same to be payable thirty years after date. The trust com pany agreed to float the bonds, the com pensation named being $100,000, payable at the maturity of the bonds, the interest on the same to be paid annually. It now seems, however, that the railroad only issued 545 of the bonds authorized. To "cover this a mortgage was given the trust company embracing all the prop erty owned by the railroad, including the proposed line from Oakland to Bodie, a distance of 250 miles. The complaint now alleges that the defendants in the suit de faulted in payment of interest in 1885 and every year thereafter. In consequence of this the complainants now file a claim of $376,050 interest due on bonds, and in ad dition to this prays for a foreclosure of the mortgage, the appointment of a receiver and an injunction against the receiver ap pointed under the Smith suit, riled May 28. HEALTH MEASURES AFAR, Congress Asked to Defeat a Senate Bill Relating to Vivisection. Milk Inspector Dockery Wants the M;lk Permit of P. McDonough Revoked. The Board of Health took an important j step at its meeting Wednesday when it passed a resolution requesting the Cali fornia representatives in Congress to op pose the passage of Senate bill No. 1552, which is now pending. This measure prohibits the use of live animals for experiments and was intro duced at the instance of the National So ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani mals, which is opposed to vivisection for any purpose whatever. The resolution was introduced on a request from the Bu reau of Agriculture at Washington, which desires to use live animals while pursuing its investigations into the causes ot many diseases of a dangerous character. The board decided to send the following communication to the Boards of Health of the various counties of the State: Dear Sir»: The Board of Health of the City and County of San Francisco, desiring to co operate with the Boards of Health of the va rious counties of this State in the extirpation of contagious diseases, and principally tuber culosis or consumption in cattle, desires to call attention to the general prevalence of that disease in dairy herds throughout this State, nii'l to the absolute necessity of combined elforta for its eradication. It neodsno suggestion by us, that it is to the interest of owners of dairy herds to free such herds from animals afflicted with contagious diseases as the entire herd must soon become infected, and within a short time thus De lost to their owners. The Board of Health of this City and County, following the wise example set by the United States Government, has begun the inspection of dairy herds in this City and County by the United States tuberculin tests, in conjunction with the Boards of Health of Santa Clara and Alameda counties, and will continue such in spection until every animal in these counties has been inspected with the United States tuberculin tests and thus proven to be free from consumption. We desire to call your attention to the fur ther fact that the milk ordinance of this City, recently passed, grants to this board the power to inspect all dairy herds furnishing milk to this City and to quarantine against milk from cows not thus inspected, and we hereby respectfully notify you that on and after October 1, 1896, we shall quarantine against all dairy cows and the mils from dairy cows thßt have not been inspected by the United States tuberculin test, according to the rules and regulations of the United States Agricultural Department, Bureau of Animal Industry. A complaint from residents of the dis trict about the intersection of Sausome street and Broadway that a chemical fac tory there is creating a nuisance was re ferred to Health Officer Lovelace for in vestigation The board, by a unanimous vote, con demned the sewer on California street, which terminates at Walnut street without an outlet, and also the one on Walnut street terminating at California street in the same manner. It was decided to ask the Board of Supervisors to remedy the matter by having the sewers joined to an outlet into the sewer on Central avenue. Milk Inspector Dockery sent in a com munication recommending that the milk permit of P. McDonough, a rancher on the San Bruno road, be canceled because of his habit of permitting his cows to feed in the morass near his place. It was de cided to give McDonough a chance to de fend himself at the next meeting of the board. The Great Kush Increasing. The silk department at the big dry goods sale (by order of the creditors, at 45c on the dollar of the if ßs 000 stock of James M. Moran & Co., 1009-1015 Market street), was the center of attraction yesterday, and from the smiling faces of the ladies who were fortunate enough to approach the counters and get waited on, one could safely surmise that the bargains were immense. There was no getting near the underwear counters in the afternoon, as the jam was terrific. The big cut in prices has captured the town. • IT IS BEAUTIFUL BUT LONESOME, Golden Gate Boulevard East of Van Ness Avenue. SIGHING FOR TRAFFIC. Property-Owners Go Before the Supervisors' Street Com mittee. . THE MERCHANTS' ASSOCIATION. Sup rvisors Recommend a Change in the Order of Traffic Exclusion From the Avenue. A boulevard may be a thing of beauty and a joy forever to the disciple of driv ing pleasure, but a boulevard from which all wheeled vehicles excepting those for recreation and pleasure are excluded is not the kind of a thoroughfare that the dwellers in the eartern division of Goiden Gate avenue are clamoring for. The property-owners and the venders of ; merchandise enjoy the smoothly paved ] street. The sight of carriages rolling by j to the park and ocean is enchanting from the purely esthetic point of view, but the gorgeous procession brings no trade. \ When a vehicle with a trader aboard comes in sight the police turn it aside and the merchant languishes. The result of this exclusion is the alleged deprecia tion of property values on Golden Gate avenue, from Market to Polk streets. Rents have declined likewise, and owners of property find it extremely difficult to keep tenants on their premises, even with offers of greatly reduced rents. Perceiving that something should be aone to restore the lost trade and enhance I declining values in real estate, property owners petitioned the Board of Super- I visors to amend the boulevard order (No. j NEW TO-DAT.

San Francisco M A Schilling & Company 2957) so that Golden Gate avenue east of Van Ness avenue should be excepted from boulevard regulations. One of the petitions was signed by the owners of one-half the property affected. The names of a large proportion of the re maining property-owners were embraced in other petitions. The interested real es tate owners were largely represented at the street committee meeting of the Board of Supervisors yesterday forenoon. Su- j pervisors Hughes, Benjamin, Morgan stern and Dunker listened to what was said. It was taken into account at the session that the Merchants' Association bad a high regard for boulevard attractions, holding that certain thoroughfares should be re served and improved for purposes of pleas ure, travel and recreation. Thomas Mat, r ee, Captain Taylor, ex-Supervisor Farns worth and Theodore Knight repre sented that the merchants on Golden j Gate avenue stood as high in the community and were quite as loyal to San Francisco as the citizens belonging to the Merchants' Association. Relerence was made to the depreciation of property values caused by the exclusion of other than pastime travel, and the argument i was strenuously advocated that the ex clusion of trade wagons west of Van Ness avenue ought to be sufficient to satisfy the most ardent adherent of boulevard pro prieties. The commercial expansion of the City | was such that Golden Gate avenue was on j tne line of development, and no good rea- j son existed for denying the owners of ! property on that thoroughfare the benefits of such advancement. The Supervisors listened respectfully to all that was said by the delegates from the avenue, and then they considered a peti tion from the directors of the Merchants' Association. This petition, of date June 20, asked that the directors should have a hearing before the committee recom mended any amendment to the existing order. It was put on record that the Street Com mittee was always willing to hear the Mer chants' Association on all pubJi; matters, but it was deckled, nevertheless, to recom mend that Goiden Gate boulevard, from Van Ness avenue east, be opened to traffic. The question will come up for final adjust- j ment when the Supervisors in regular ses- ; sion *hail taKe up the report of the Street j Committee. Meanwhile Magee, Knight, j Farnsworth and Taylor ma}' gather their \ forces for the fight in the board, and the j boulevard advocates may rally to main- j tain what has been scoured. The Street Committee also recommended the full acceptance of following streets: Fell, from Clayton to Cole. Fell, from Cole to Shrader. Fell, from Shrader to Stanyan. Laurel, from Sacramento to California. Webster, from Oak to Page. Intersection of Fell and Cole; intersec tion of Fell and Shrader. Lodging;- Hou*e Case.

Visiting Delegates Expf cted From All States in the Union. THE TEST OF CITIZENSHIP. A Strong and Progressive Union of Patriotic German. Americans. Though it is two years in the future a thrill of pleasurable excitement is al ready felt among the German residents of San Francisco over the eighteenth annual convention of the Turner Union societies of the United States, which will begin | herein June, 1898. The "bund" or union is | now in session at Louisville, Ky. , and the j selection of this City for its next conven | tion is due in a great measure to the ac i tivity of Albert Culm, a prominent jour nalist of San Jose. This will be the first National convention of the union ever held on the Pacific Coast and it is a significant event to all loyal German-Americans. The Turners' Union aims at physical and mental culture and takes an intelli gent interest in all of the social, political and economical a uestions of the day. It is represented in nearly all of the larger I cities and towns of the United States, and I has upon its roll 3 the names of some 50,000 members. The societies number upward of 300. Americans as well as Germans are eligible to membership, but every foreigner must become a citizen of the United States. The union was organized ! some thirty-five years ago, and its history has ever since been marked by cuiture and prosperity, It is expected that the visiting delegates alone will be not fewer than 500, exclusive |of their wives and friends, which will I make at least a thousand. Like other or ! ganizations of its class, the purpose of the | convention will be to frame general laws, j etc., for the thirty odd districts within its jurisdiction. There will also be the usual election, speeches and banquets and a jolly good time is confidently anticipated. The oldest Turner Union organization on the Pacific Coast is the San Francisco Turn Verein. It has been in existence since 1852 and is pleasantly located at 323 Turk street, where it has a fine gymna sium, library, reading-room, etc. The following is the list of its present officers: President, G. A, Trost; vice-president, Henry Dunck; recording secretary, Louis Brune; corresponding secretary, Hermann bteklin ; treasurer, Henry Planz; financial secretary, Henry Stieber; first leader, Albert Furth ; second leader, Hermann i Alpen; first librarian, Charles Schullkoff; 'second librarian, Adolf Bergman; ser j geant-at-arms, B. Baumstark; trustees — I Louis Marcus, Louis Schneider, Theodore ! Planz, William Plageman and G. A. Trost: instructor, Professor Robert Barth ; presi- I dent of the singing section, John Siramen. The other societies of this City are the Mission Turn Verein on Eighteenth street, the Forward Turn Verein on O'Farrell street and the Verein Eintracht on Twelfth street. They comprise a total member ship of about 1000, and the twelve socie ties scattered throughout the cities ana towns of - California have at least 3000 more. These figures added to the list of visiting delegates and friends will give a total of upward of 5000 persons who may be expected to assemble in San Francisco in June, 1898. Sorry Now He Did It. M.
