ments And training vxpenses are paid.
Sharkey was taken from his bed yester
day afternoon and went to Valle}o
with his manager, Lynch. Just what this
new movement indicates has not yet come
to light, but it is suspected that they have
received legal advice to the effect that it
will be better for them to get out of the
jurisdiction of the courts, in view of the
present very active litigation on the sub
ject of debts.
Earp appeared in Justice Groezinger's
court yesterday afternoon and testified
that he was poor and owned only the
clothes on his back. Although having re
sided here tor several years he swore that
ne did not know where Sansome street
was. It was the opinion of many of the
spectators that Long Green should take a
day off and make Mr. Earp acquainted
with the business part of the City.
The investigation into the alleged qon
»piracy to rob the betting public is being
proceeded with very quietly. Detectives
have been working on the case, and it
is reported that the evidence they have
secured is overwhelming.
When Justice of the Peace Groezinger
called the case of J. F. Carroll vs. Robert
FitzsimmonK the courtroom was crowded
with spectators. Wyatt Earp, who failed
to appear at the former session of the
court, was present and was the center of
observation by the curious crowd.
Attorney Arthur E. Mack was in attend
ance to look after Sharkey's interests,
vrhiie George Perry and Jacob Raver rep
resented the plaintiff. Mr. Raver sat by
Mr. Perry's side and suggested questions
to him from time to time. Mr. Perry an
nounced at the outset t at he did not
wish to push the contempt matter against
"Long Green's" friend.
Earp was called to the stand, and in
answer to a question by Justice Groezin
ger explained why he had failed to obey
i he subpena. He said the paper was
handed to him by a deputy sheriff with
whom he was not acquainted, and that
having a nandful of correspondence at
the time, he placed the subpena in his
coat- pocket and forgot all about It. The
witness was deferential to the court.
"There is no reason why I should dis
obey your orders in any way. 1 have
been an officer lor thirty years of my life,
and for that reason 1 know what it means
io disobey the court."
The court purged Earp of contempt and
Mr. Perry proceeded to inquire abutb ut the
certificate of deposit for ihe $10,000 stake
;noney. The witness said that he haJ the
certificate in his hands at the time he
acted as referee and when the garnish
ment was served on him. He told about
Lynch going out to his house on Golden
Gale avenue and how they went down
town to some bank, wi ere Enrp indorsed
the certificate. He could not tell the
name of me bank nor the street on wh.cti
it was located, beyond the fact that it was
Hbout a block and a half from the Nevada
Bank on Montgomery street and in the
direction of the bay.
He denied tuat he had bad any under
standing with any person or persons as to
the disposition of the purse or the certifi
cate o» deposit.
"Do you own any property?" asked Mr.
Mr. Raver looked interested.
"Nothing, except the clothes on my
back," replied Earp.
He added that he had some race horses,
but they were leased by him for three
years from a woman who lives in Santa

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1896.
although he said that he had resided in
t .is City lor several years, swore that he
aid not know where Sansome street was.
The case was then continued until this
afternoon at 2 o'clock.
The suspense in this whole scandal will
be relieved In the morning. Long Green
Lawrence, Danny Lynch, Wyatt Earp and
Thomas Sharkey, as well as the lesser
stars in the "foul constellation" will be
given a chance to prove that they did not
conspire tn defraud Robert Fitzsimmons
out of $10,000 and the public out of tne
wagers made on the Sharkey fight.
Colonel H I. Kowalsky, the legal repre
sentative of Fhzsircmons, brought suit
yesterday directly aeainst Sharkey to re
cover $10,000, which the defendant is al
leged to be withholding from the rightful
"This action," explained Colonel Kow
alsky, "can settle the whole controversy in
short order. If Sharkey, Earp, Lynch
and that clique are in the right they can
get in and prove it. If they are in the
wrong they will bring up some techni
cality and, en use delay.
"We will appear before Judge Sanderson

that there was a conspiracy, by which Mr.
Fitz-inimons was robbed of $10,000 and
the evidence we have in our possession is
"The reason we desire to put our case
before the court so soon is that witnesses
in affairs of this kind are of a migratory
class. They are here to-day and tneir
business culls them away to-morrow.
While they are hore we want to hear their
testimony instead of having to delay mat
ters by having to send out of the State for
their depositions. If the Lynch-Sharkey
side wishes to act in gocd faith and hopes
o present a clear case it can produce its
evidence either this morning or to-mor
row. There is no reason for delay in the
matter. Either Fitzsimmons is right and
Sharkey wrong, or vice versa."
EDITOR BUNKER'S LETTER.
He Contradicts a Statement,. Made,
by Gibbs and Groom.
Apropos of Referee Earp and his alleged
-election by the National Club, on Monday
last a statement from J. J. Groom and J.
D. Gibbs appeared in The Call, of which
the following is a part:
The managers of the principals were arguing
for several days over the appointment of a
referee, and it became manifest as the.day of
the contest approached that '.bey would make
no selection, that they could not agree upon
any one, and Mr. Gibbs and I talked over the
matter, as it was importunt that we should
be prepared at 12 o'clock, noon, of December
2 to name the referee in the event that the
managers of the principals failed to do so. In
discussing the matter Mr. Giobs stated that he
had tn mind a man who would give entire
satisfaction, as he whs reported to be fearless,
cool and honest. He said that such men as
Andy Lawrence of the Examiner, Mr. Bunker
of :he Report and Mr. Simpson of the Chronicle
spoke in terms of praiso of him, and we could
make no mistake in selecting him. I said:
"If he is good enough for the press he is eood
good enough for me."
As will be seen by the letter fiom Mr.
Bunker, which is self-explanatory, he did
not speak in terms of praise of Referee
Earp, but on the contrary he advised the
club through the Report to avoid the re
sponsibility of selecting a referee. This is
what Mr Bunker writes:
Charles M. Shortridge, EdttorCall—T>EAVi Sib:
At 4 p. m. on tne day preceding the Snirki-y-
Fiizsimmous content our sporting editor tele
phoned tn me mat Mr. Gibbs would call at the
Report office between 4 and half-past ana leave
tickets of admission for tne paper. At 5 o'CIo k
Mr. Gibbs called, showed me the diagram, al
lowed me lo select seats and gave me the tick
ets. Incidentally I naked him if any referee
had been selected. He answered in the nega
tive, and added that in case the principals
tailed to unit" on a man the club had some
one who would surely suit everybody. I asked
him who mis some one was and he told me it
was Wyatt Earp, adding that Mr. Earp had
been indorsed by people in good standing, in
cluding several newspaper men. He asked me
what I thought of the choice and 1 said I knew
notnlng of Earp beyond the fnct tnat he had
won a frontier reputation for courage. I iur
tfaer remarked that the Reoon had iilready
advised the club to avoid the responsibility of
selecting a reieree.andl thought the advice
was timely and pertinent. This was the on. y
talk I had with anybody about the affair, and
I should not have had this ink had not Mr.
Gibbs called at the office to leave tickets and
this talk was merely a casual chat while the
selection of tickets was being made. Very
truly yours, W. M. Bunker,
President Daily Report Publishing Company.
WYATT EARP SUED.
O.d Tombstone L>tbts Bob Up Like
Attorney Joseph Rothschild yesterday
filed a suit for J. H. Lavenson against
Wyatt Earp, Marshall Williams and John
H. Jackson to collect money due on two
notes made in Tombstone, Ariz., over hf
teen years ago.
Both notes are dated October 29, 1881, the
first being for $600 and the other for
Indorsements on the papers show that
they were presented for payment at ma
turity and that in the usual legal way
they went to protest, the Examiner's noted
gun-fighter and favorite priza-fight referee
not thinking it necessary to provide means
to protect the inte nty of his paper.
In the many years that have passed
those notes have been pursuing Earp, but
he has dodged thera^ so successfully that
nobody has been abie to collect anything
on them. The usual methods of collection
will be followed, and if Ea*p gets the sal
ary that be ought to have for serving as the
bodyguard of An ly Lawrence, the Long
Green editor of Willie Hearst's Examiner,
the long-suffering creditors of the discred
ited referee may at last be consoled by eet
tinc a glimpse of the color of his money.
Earp will be called up in court on an
order of examination aa to his property
and his salary, when some interesting
revelations may be expected.

AN IDLE FLEET
IN OAKLAND CREEK
Nearly Eighty Vessels Are
Tied Up in the
Some of Them Have Been There
for Years and Are Now
Fast in the Mud.
The Harbor Commissioners Discover
a Job io the Bids for the Mail
While shipping has picked up wonder
fully during: the past month there is still
an enormous fleet tied up in Oakland
Creek outside of those in Mission Bay,
Richardson Bay and Martinez. All classes
of crafts are represented. There is the
whaler returned from a successful or un
successful trip to the Arctic, the sugar boat
that finds it unprofitable to run any more
to Hawaii, the lumber schooner that can
not make it pay to carry lumber from
coastwise ports, British ships that have
anchored there to await a charter and
steamers that are awaiting better times.
The etuary i* the most crowded portion
of the State's water-front and no where
else in America can a greater variety of
craft be seen.
The Lark Annie Johnson is among the
fleet and the Grenada keeps her company.
Tiif steamer Kahului is in the mud and
the Kodiak awaits next spring to start for
the Arctic. All in all there are over ninty
vessels tied up in the creek and 90 per cent
of them are likely to remain there until
after McKinley's inauguration. Then
wn-.n protection is again in force there
may be something for American shipping
The only arrivals yesterday were the
Ardencraig from Newcastle, N. 8. W. ,
the Win tesboro from Gre- nwood and the
Mineola from Comax, B. f!. Several ves
sels sailed during the day, so the fleet in
port has not been increased.
State Harbor Policeman Mooney had a
peculiar experience yesterday. He caught
a young man in the act of stealing a sack
of beans from JacKson-street wharf. He
had loaded it into a buggy belonging to
the J. B. Bocarde Drayage Company when
caught and attempted to get away.
Mooney stopped him and, getting upon
the seat, ordered tho iad to drive to the
Harbor police station. The prisoner re
fus d point blank, so the policeman had
to drive himself. At the corner of Clay
and East streets the young man made a
jump, and before Mooney could stop the
horse he was out of siuht. Captain Uun
leavy has a regular officer on the case, but
the chances are that the thief will never
be h u ard from a -am.
There is weeping and wailing and
g.i. hing n teeth in Mare Island to-night.

each time they want to come to San
Francisco or visit the navy-yard.
The whole trouble is over a anestlon of
wharfage. The Harbor Commissioners
have decided that in future the navy-yard
tug must pay whenever she lands at one
of the ytate wharves. This means an ex
penditure of what the commandant is not
warranted in shouldering. Consequently
the officers will have to pay the wharfage
or travel by the regular line of steamers.
"All United States vessels pay wharfage
in other ports," said President Colnon
yesterday, "and why not in San Fran
cisco? The Sunol, Monticello.and Herald
that ply between here and the -navy-yard
and Vallejo have to pay their lull dues
and run opposition to a United States
vessel that pays no wharfage. It wasn't
fair and now all the craft are on the
same footing. The Umatilla must pay
wharfage just the same as any other
In the same connection the lighthouse
tender, Madrone, will also have to pay
wharfaga. Tbis means that in future she
will coal at Goat Island and tne men,
when they want a run ashore, will have to
take a boat and row over to Lon » wharf,
Oakland, and then come to San Francisco
by steamer. It is hard on Uncle Sam's
men, but "what is sauce for the goose
should be sauce for the gander," and the
Harbor Commission will have just so ■
much more space at its disposal in future.
The trouble between Captain Hicks of
the Manchester an i Balfour, Guthrie &
Co. has been amicably settled. The mas
ter has agreed to accept the sacks in which
the wheat is being placed aboard and has
receipted for all that is now in the vessel's
hold. Her stiffening is now nearly all in,
and in a couple of days the vessel will go
to Port Costa to load.
The Harbor Commissioners held a short
session yesterday and opened bids for the
construction of a shed on the wharf De
tween the Mail dock and Fremont street,
now being got ready for the Pacific Mail
and Occidental and Oriental Company.
They were as follows: F. A.Williams,
$(J098: J. H. McKay, $6070; Thomas H.
Day, $5983; Healy, Tibbits & Co., $5978.
Commissioner Cole had a short talk with
Chief Engineer Holmes and then moved
that ali the bids be rejected. President
Colnon promptly put the motion and it
was earned. New bids wer- ordered called
for, and the advertisement will appear in
the Post. It transpired later that the Com
missioners thought there was collusion
among the bidders, hence their action.
Incoming coas ers report the sealing
schooner Eppineer as doing remarkably
well. She only left. here last Friday for a
cruise along the coast, but even in that
