Three Attempts to Destroy
the Four-Masted Bark
Incipient Blazes Discovered in
Time to Preserve the
MUTINOUS SAILOB SUSPECTED.
Had Threatened When Placed in
Irons That He Would Be
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Oct. 9.—
There is considerable suppressed excite
ment around the water front in Tacoma
over the attempt to burn a fine English
bark lying at one of the wharves dis
charging a general cargo. The matter is
being carefully suppressed there, while
two detectives are trying to trap the fire
bugs. Thrice the vessel has been set, afire
and each time narrowly escaped.
The fine four-masted bark Drumcraig is
moored alongside of the Eureka doct. It
is discharging a cargo taken aboard in
England, and a portion of wHich was
landed in Vancouver. On the passage out
from Europe one of the sailors became
mutinous and so violent that it was neces
sary to put him in irons. Some of his
shipmates say that while he was in irons
he threatened that when .liberated and
ashore be wouid wreak his vengeance on
A few nights after he left the Drnmcraig
in Vancouver It was discovered that an at
tempt had been made to burn the vessel.
The sailor had disappeared and, though
suspicion pointed toward him, the watch
was doubled to prevent a second attempt.
A week later the vessel went to Tacoma
and a day or two afterward one of the
crew reported having seen the suspected
man skulking along the back part of the
That night a second attempt was made
to fire the vesrel. In a place where a lot
of combustible paint had been stored, the
paint having been removed only a few
hours before, a good-sized blaze was dis
covered. Before getting mucn headway it
The most diligent watch was then be
gun to catch the firebug. On Monday
night another attempt was made to set
the bark afire.
The blaze did not get much headway
and died out. Tne police were notified,
and two detectives are now at wort night
and day trying \o unravel the mystery
and arrest the suspected sailor. The cap
tain and officers are dumfounded, and
aside from suspecting the sailor, whom
they ironca on the voyage out from Eng
land for insubordination, are at a loss to
account for the several attempts to burn
the bark. The ship's officers say that
every man aboard is above suspicion, and
that" several trifling events indicate tnat
some one boarded the barJr to apply the
match. Each time the vessel was set afire
there was a different watch on deck.
TO BEGAN THE UMATILLA.
Attempt to Move the Me am hip Will Be
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Oct. 9.— lt
is confidently expected by the stranded
and half-sunken steamship Umatilla's
officers that at noon to-morrow the vessel
will be pumped out, floated around Point
Wilson into Port Townsend Bay and
beached where it will be safe from bad
weather. Then if it is deemed safe it will
be taken to the drydock at Quartermaster
Harbor for permanent repairs.
The ship's two pumps and four other
12-inch pumps were started to-day and in
five minutes lowered the water four incnes.
All of the holes found in the Umatilla's
bottom have been stopped, and it is be
lieved that it can be easily pumped out
and be afloat by noon.
As much freight as possible has been
removed from the vessel, two scowJoads
being landed to-day. In every other way
it has been lightened and is now in good
condition to be raised. If to-morrow's
attempt is unsuccessful four additional
]8-inch pumps will be used in a second
effort to raise the half-submersred steamer.
Kasson Estate Sued on a Note
Given to a Saloon-
STOCKTON, Cal., Oct. 9.— An action
commenced in tde Superior Court to-day
may result in an interesting fight involv
ing the Kr.sson estate when the trial takes
place. The plaintiffs are A. F. Naher and
k B. F. Kohl berg, who, by their attorneys.
\-Nicol & Orr, sue Clark McChesney, as
executor of the will of George M. Kasson,
to recover $6245 42, alleged to be due on a
debt of $5000, contracted by Kasson some
time before his death. The sum sued for
includes the interest claimed to be due on
the original amount. The note on which
tne action is commenced was given to
George- Af. Mowry, a saloon-keeper, and
by him transferred to the plaintiffs.
For some time it has been whispered
that sensational developments would
come to light in the Kasson estate, and
that not only a note for a large sum of
money but a contract marriage would fig
nre in the case. McChesney, it is alleged,
will endeavor co prove that the note was
given to Mowry by Kasson while he was
drunk and ignorant of what he was
According to the story now being told
Kasson, while under the influence of
liquor, sought the companion shiD. of a
characterless woman, and while in his
cups be offered to marry her, and actual
ly did sign a contract of marriage that
somebody made out.
It was on the same occasion, according
to report, that the note was given by the
rich rancher to the saloonist. The note
was given in return for various notes of
much smaller denomination. McChesney
will endeavor to prove that Kasson was as
drunk and irresponsible when he signed
these smaller notes as he was when he
sicned the big one.

The Australian Team to Be Met by
Many Prominent Citizens Nxt
All cricuetdom is discussing but one sub
ject — the forthcoming match on Wednes
day and Thursday next between the
world-famous Australian team and eight
een representative California cricketers.
It will undoubtedly be the most import
ant cricket event ever seen on this coast,
ana should the weather be favorable the
grand stand of the Presidio athletic
grounds is likely to be packed.
A committee composted of the executive
committee of the St. George's Club and of
ficers and delegates of the cricket associa

Thomas J. Flynn, proprietor of the Wasp ;
James Markland, Rev. vV. W. Bolton and
Rev. James Fell. They will leave this
City by the 7 P. M. boat on Tuesday.
R. H. Delefield was appointed a com

the grounds are being put in perfect order.
A concrete pitch has been laid and rollers

Notification has been received from the
following cricketers in the interior offer

of Lawrences, ,Santa Clara County; K.
Hamilton Sims, secretary Hanford Club,
all of whom v.ill bring down good delega

Captain W. R. Robertson of the Bohe
mians, who will captain the local players,
was seen by a Call representative yester
day in reference to the tactics he would
pursue in the contest. He said:
"If I win the toss I will put the visitors

nificent batting exhibition, such as has
never before been seen on this coast. At
the start. I will take the bowling at one
end, with H. H. Cookson as my partner.
Myers of the Pacifies will do duty with
the gloves. The, changes of bowling,
which will, no doubt, be soon called for,
will bring on Ward Jr., Sloman, Dickin
son, Peel and other noted trundlers.
With this material and the balance of our
eishteen strong team in the field we may
be able to dispose of them for a reason
"When their inning comes to a close —
if it ever does — I hope with the assistance
of such batsmen as Richardson, Butt,
Moriarity, West, Jackson, Keeling, Bow
ley. Sloman, Hogue, Bowhill and myself
(this last being added with the modesty of
merit) to come somewhere near if not up
to the kangaroo score.
"What we have most to fear is the stage
fright of our team. If they will only keep
up their pluck and forget that they are
playing against such men as Griffin, Trott,
Trumble and Johns, and with the eyes of
the world and of their lady friends upon
them, I have no doubt that we shall make
a creditable showing and prove to the
United States that cricket in California is
only second to cricket in Philadelphia — if
Letters, telegrams and telephone mes

BUCKLEYITES BUCKLE IN.
They Will Go on the Ballot a* "Silver
Democrats" and Populists.
The decision ot the Supreme Court de
nying the Buckieyitcs the right to use
the designation "Democrat" on the bal
lot had the effect of rather enlivening the
camp of that faction last evening.
Most of the Buckley ticket will go on
the ballot under the designation "Popu
list" anyway, so that the decision merely
forces the presentation by petition of the
small portion of the ticket not taken up
by the local Populists.
The Buckleyites, however, will present
their entire ticket by petition, and their
proposition last night was to go on the
ballot under the title "Silver Democrats,"

day before regarding the Palmer and

They Will Not Indorse Any Can-

A joint meeting of all the committees of
the Union Veterans' League was held at
their headquarters at the Auditorium
yesterday at 2 p. m. In the absence of
President Ruddick, the meeting was called
to order by Vice-President General John
F. Sheeban. The object of the meeting
bad been under discussion for some time,
and at yesterday's meeting a final plan of
action was adopted.
One of the subjects discussed by the
committee was the fact that all the Elec
tion Commissioners but one were Demo
crats, and that the precinct officers were
nearly all Democrats, and about all the
offices — Federal, State and municipal —
were filled by Democrats, and conse
quently that it behooveß the Republican
party to guard well its interest until elec
tion day. Therefore the committee de
cided that it would not only be necessary
to vote the Republican National ticket,
but also to see that the vote would be
counted on election day.
It was decided to appoint a committee
in every precinct so that they might can
vass their respective precincts by the day
of election, and in order to more thor
oughly perfect the system it would be
necessary that the veterans forward their
addresses and the number of their pre
cincts and Assembly districts to head
quarters as soon as possible in care of the
secretary of the Union Veterans' Patriotic
It was also decided that the committee
should meet daily, Bunday excepted, at 3
p. m., until the day of election. The com
mittee is now as follows: William J.
Ruddick, president; General John F.
Sheehan, first vice-president; Charles M.
Leavy, second vice-president; D. M.
Cashin, secretary ; Martin Murray, treas
urer; executive committee — General
James Coey, John J. Shepbeard, Jerome
Deasy, C. A. Fuller, Thomas Mallon, J. T.
Bonnitield, C. B. Grass, C. D. Douglas,
The following preamble and resolution
were unanimously adopted:
Whekeas, The Union Veterans' Patriotic
League is a strictly National organization
whose aim and objects are the election of the
National Republican candidates for President
and Vice- President of the United States, it is,
Resolved, That the San Francisco Encamp
ment of the Union Veterans' Patriotic League
will not indorse any candidate for municipal
office, that we will not solicit or accept a con
tribution from any candidate for office, nor
will we authorize toe name of this organiza
tion to be used for any such purpose.

POLITICS IN ALAMEDA.
Republicans Hold a Blar Rally at
Which W. B. Heyburn Speaks.
ALAMEDA, Cal., Oct. 9.— The largest
crowd that ever gathered on Park street
thronged that thoroughfare to-night. The
occasion was a Republican rally, and Lin
derman's Opera-house was filled to over
flowing long before the speaker arrived.
The McKinley Drill Corps, in their natty
white uniforms, paraded on Park street,
headed by a band, and were followed by a
carriage in which were Judge Greene, W.
B. Heyburn and E. K. Taylor. On reach
ing the hall, Mr. Taylor introduced F. H.
McCormick as chairman of the evening.
Judge Greene and Sam P. Hall, candidates
for the Superior bench, were introduced,
but neither spoke more than a few sen
Mr. Heyburn was greeted with tremen
dous cheers as he arose to speak. He said
in part: "Politics is business. Those
things that are not permissible in business
are not permissible in politics. When we
undertake a business affair we look
around to determine what course to
pursue. If there ever was a campaign
where these rules should apply it is this
one. Our opponents are continually try
ing to find some excuse for turning the
Republican party out of power. Four
years ago when they could find no other
excuse they told them they had some
thing free to offer, and we got free trade as
the panacea for all the ills we suffered.
What wa3 the result? Nothing but dis
aster. I believe there is no man who
would declare for free trade. But what
did they do? They simply tampered with
the revenue and business of the country.
"They aie pleased to tell us that the
present condition of the country arises
from the crime of 1873.
"Where this disaster is said to have
fallen the heaviest there was not a dollar
in silver in circulation. How could legis
lation nffecting the silver dollar of that
time affect the interests of thp people
when none of it was in circulation ?
"There is but one party that is in favor
of bimetallism in the United States, and
that is the Republican party. These par
ties that are so hard to name only pro
pose to substitute silver monometallism.
The silver dollar of to-day has the promise
of the Government to pay, and is as good
and as fully valuable as the gold dollar."
GAINED A VICTORY.
M«Jor John A. Darling Has Secured a
Transfer and Will Remain at the
Major John A. Darling, Fifth Artillery, U. S.
A., has arranged with Major Ramsay for ft
transfer to the Third Artillery, and will there
fore remain at the Presidio until further or
ders. His friends in the army say that he
may, after the departure of General Graham
«nd the Fifth Artillery next week, become
post commander-in-chief at the Presidio, nnd
hold that important position until the arrival
of Colonel Bainbridge, Third Artillery. The
major commanded the post at Black Point,
under Generals McDowell, Schofield, Pope and
Howard. In 1867 he commanded Goat Island,
and foiled the railroad company, which was
then preparing to seize it.
At the Presidio the hope is expressed that
the relations between the coming commander,
Colonel Bainbridge, will be more cordial than
those which have long existed between Gen
eral Graham and th? major. It is quite grati
fying for the major's friends to contemplate
that he will no longer be compelled to bow to
the superior authority of General Graham, and
they perceive in this transfer a victory gained
for the major. The Secretary of War, hi his
wi«;<lom, may keep these officers wide apart.
With one in San Francisco and the other In
New York there cannot be- much friction.
Among the many duties devolving upon Mr.
Lament none is more difficult to perform than
that of preserving peace IB theariny. By this
time he must compreheud that the reservation
at the Presidio is not large enough for General
Graham and Major Darling.
Colonel Bainbridge, the coming com
mander, is said by his army associates to be a
master of all the arts of diplomacy and a
superior strategist in the affairs of post ad
ministrations. His prestige in society equals
his rank in the army, and all acquiesce
readily in his leadership.
The report that Major Darling is to be re
tired on Hccount of pnysiccl disability is re
garded by his friends as incredible. Phy
sically the major is in superb condition and is
likely to astonish a board of artny surgeons by

A sensation was sprung in Judge Dain
gerfield's department of the Superior
Court last evening, when the case of
Anthony Quill against the Southern
Pacific Company went to the jury after a
protracted trial covering nine days.
Mr. Quill sued the corporation for $50,
--000 for the death of his daughter, May
Quill, an accomplished young girl, who
was killed by the Berkeley local at Dwight
station in February last.
Before the jury was charged by Judge
Daingerfield Attorney Matt Sullivan, who
represented the plaintiff, electrified the
court and spectators by announcing that
he had absolute proof that at least two of
the jurors had been seen in the company
of railroad detectives and were open to
the suspicion of having come under rail
He pointed a warning finger at John F.
Sweeny and John Heany, and told them
that they had been watched by detectives,
and would be until the case had finally
been disposed of. He said he knew posi
tively that they had expressed a certain
belief that the plaintiff could not get a
verdict so long as they were on the jury,
and that a certain P. Isaacs, who was then
in the courtroom, was responsible for their
conviction in favor of the defendant. He
claimed that the latter had exerted in
fluence which would come under the crim
inal statutes covering such cases.
Attorney Sullivan's startling declara
tion was made about 8 o'clock after the
jury had been charged. The arguments
were finished at 5 o'clock and the jury was
taken out for supper. At the hour named
they were called in and after the foreman
had announced that they had failed to

Juryman Sweeny announced that he
knew Mr. Isaacs from a jury in a previous
case, but denied that He had been influ

Judge Daingerfield said that he T7ould
send the jury out until 11 o'clock and
would then return and hear what the
members had to say regarding the case.
About the hour promised, Judge Dainger
