Jf»r carrying out the scneme in which
they are alleged to have been engaged.;
, The coin plaint sets forth that the is
: sued capital stock of the Alaska Improve

•■ shares of the par value of $10 each, of
■which shares the plaintiffs herein 077n
11,625 shares (except that the Tallant
Banking Company is pledgee of 2450
shares owned by James Madison); that
the defendants, James Eva and Barling,
. together with Clift and a son of James
' Eva, own 12,700 shares of the stock; that
. with the aid of Cii:t and Eva's son James
'.. Ev"a and Barling have been able to con
trol- and have controlled and do now cun
• trol the board of directors of the com
pany, and elect four out of the seven mem
-.- befs of the board of directors; that James

president of the corporation, find that
Barring is the superintendent; that the
, Alaska Improvement Company, until the
- sa,le thereof, was the owner of fisheries,
canneries, vessels, lands and other valu
/abie property at Karluk, on Kadiak
• Island, Alaska, and at Bristol Bay,
•. Alaska.
. Tn* beginning of the alleged conspiracy
is then brought out in tne statement that
■■.a't'a meeting of the board of directors of the
;• Alaska Improvement Company in San
Francisco on the 23d ot last December,
•. James Eva and Barling were at their own
""••request appointed a committee to nego
tiate, a sale of ail the property of the
..'•Alaska Improvement Company to the
Alaska Packers' Association on the best
' '•' te'ms so be obtained.
On the 29th of December Secretary Pen
tecost was added to the conimittee, and
'. the committee was empowered to arrange
a.'sale and report the same to the directors
v -.of the corporation. Thereafter, on the sth
•'.of lai'. month the committee, composed of
<tnies Eva, Barling and Pentecost, re-
Ttrd that they had nesotiated for the
sale, to the Alaska Packers' Association all
• of the property of the Alaska Improv««

■ money anu canned salmon on hand) for
4p] 6,000, the Packers' Association agree

•a:;d provisions at the canneries. ■
I '•'. Relying on the report ot the committtee
. and the personal, assurances of James
I Eva, Barling and Pentecost, the board of
•" directors ol the Alaska Improvement
Company authorized the signing of the
Contract for the sale and transfer of the
.-. property..
. .' Then came the surprise, for the com
*•" plaint avers that the report of James Eva
,„ and Barling was untrue and fabricated,
. and that the agreement was not genuine,
but was made for tbe purpose of imposing
on the board of directors of the Alaska
Impro%'£ment Company; that the Alaska
• .Packing Association was, in fact, willine
• to pay and actually agreed to pay the
. • committee $300,000 for the property ln
" stead of $136,000. as was falsely reported
•by the committee.
•' ' In the meantime the sale had been com
j pleted and deeds lor the property were ex
ecuted and delivered to the purchaser, the
. sum of $52,250 in cash having been pnid
\ on account to the improvement company.
•In addition to the payment to the im
provement company it is asserted that
623, shares of the Packers' Associntion,'
' worth 164,800, have been i3»ue.l to W. B.
Bradford as tru-tee for James Eva and H.
'*, J.- Barling, or one of them.
• • According to the view of plaintiffs it is
the intention of James Eva and J. H. Bar
.. ling to take and appropriate to their own
use m fraud of the rights of the Alaska
' Improvement Company the sum of $1G4,
--000, including the stock of the Packers'
• Association before mentioned.
At the last election of the Alaska Im

The $52,250 received 'or the canneries wes
distributed as dividends, and James Eva
• and Barling look their ratahle proportion,
'. and unless restrained by the court will re
ceive a like proport : on oi future pavmenta
for the property, in addition to $104,000
.that they are to obtain by reason of their

s>"o demand has been, made on the board
. of directors of the Alaska Improvement

because it would be useless to do so, as

The. court is asked to declare tbe
stock in Bradford's possession to be held by
him in trust for tne Alaska Improvement
Company and to restrain the payment
of further dividends until the lull sum of

GRAND OPERA
HERE IN MARCH
A Big Parisian Company
to Give Twenty Per-
formances.
Wealthy Citizens Back of the
Project With a Guarantee
of $ifo,ooo
Five Performances a Week at the
California T.ieater— Seats to
Be $i. $2 and $3
San Francisco is to have grand opera by
a fine French opera company from Paris.
Ihere will be twenty operas in all. 'Five
wiil be given each week for fonr consecu
tive weeks. The first will be presented
between the 10th and 14th of March. All
the operas will be given in the California
Theater.
The price of seats will be $1, $2 and $3.
A number cf the most prominent
wealthy men in the City are interesting
themselves in the project. Among them
are Henry tcott, E. W. Hopkins, Joseph
D. Grant, Mayor James D. Pbelan, Henry
S. Crocker, William M. Newhall and
others, including persons prominent in
the local French colony.
This preliminary meeting was held at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon. They at
once decided personally and with the
assistance of several other men to offer a
guarantee of $40,000 to the French Opera
Company now in New Orleans.
That company has between 125 and 130
performers.
It win cost approximately the amount
of the guarantee fund for the twenty
operas and the railroad and other ex
penses of tbe company.
The proposition was first submitted to
At Hayman, the theatrical manager, but
the project was deemed too expensive as a
pure business venture.
The guarantors do not, of course, seek
to profit personally lrom the undertaking.
They hope that it may be sutliciemlr suc
cessful to render the use of the guarantee
fund or any part of it unnecessary. At
the reasonable prices decided upon it will
be necessary to play to full houses. The
California Theater accommodates about
1500 persons.
On an average $2)00 will have to be
taken in each nigot in order to raise
$40,000 for the twenty operas.
Arrangements have already been made
with Ai Bouvier to present tne operas ai
the California.
The French opera company now in New
Orleans is, according to the critics, tbe
best that has been heard there iv the last
twenty years.
It is cuitomory with New Orleans, com
paratively isolated as it is and having
many residents of French descent, to have
some large Parisian opera company come
over each year for a season of grand opera. |
It is hoped that the experiment here
may result in the creation of a popular
taste that wiil become a demand fu# such
music
The company that is billed to come
here Is completely equipped. All the
operas will be sung in French, and in
French alone.
Some of the singers of the laree com
pany are: Mme. Berthet, Mme. Fre
mieau-Benati, Mme. Feedere, Mme. Sa
vine, Mme. Lafeuiliade, Mme. Beliet, M.
Massaret, M. Albers, M. Prevost, M.
Atbers, M. Freich.
The company's repertoire of operas is as
follows: "La Juive," ••L'Africame." "Les
Dragons de Villars," "Sigurd," "Rigo
letto." "Le Chalet," "Faust," "Cavaileria
Rusticaua,' : "William Tell," '-Miss Hel
yett," "La Filledu Regiment," "La Navar
raise," "Carmen," "II Trovatore," "Le?
Husuenots," "La Mascotte," ''Aida,"
"Mignon," "I Pagliacci," "Tannhauser,"
"Traviata."

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1897.
Mine. Fremkau Eenati.
IN HONOR OF
A LONG REIGN
British Will Celebrate Vic
toria's Diamond Anni-
versary.
Day of Jubilee for Sixty Years
as Ruler of tbe English
Peop'e.
The Funds Will Be Used for a Ma
ternity Ward or Hospital for
Deserving Women.
A number of British residents of San
Francisco met in tbe marble room of the
Palace Hotel yesterday to take steps look
ing to the celebration of Qjieen Victoria's <
! diamond jubilee this year.
The meeting was called to order by j
Consul Warburton and the meeting em- j
| powered him to appoint a committee to i
I make all arrangements necessary to a
! proper celebration of the fact of the
i Queen's reign of sixty years.
Several speeches were made by promi- |
| nent British residents, and all said they
i were in favor of taking such steps as ;
would redound to the credit of the lovers
Sf 'the grand old Queen."
William E. Doxey, as president of the \
I British Benevolent Association, reported
i that the Victoria Hospital Association ,
had left a fund of $7000 with the British j
Benevolent Society and the St. Andrew's
Society, half with each; that the interest i
was to be used for hospital purposes, and I
that the funds were safely intact for the
purposes prescribed.
It was the general sense of the meeting
that the diamond jubilee be celebrated in ':
some imposing manner, so that tbe fund
therefrom nii^tu exceed that celebrated at
the golden jubilee at Woodward's Garden
ten years ai:o.
For the purpose of reaching the desired
end a permanent organization was ef
fected, with the follow ine officers: Cbair-
I man. Consul Warburton ; vice-president,
F. W. Brandon; second vice-presideui,
George F. Butler; third vice-president, R.
B. Furman.
Speeches were made by the Rev. W. W.
Bolton, George F. Butler, William E.
Doxey, J. Pope and others.
Before adjournment the chairman was
authorized to appoint a committee of fifty
to take eo tire charge of tbe forthcoming
diamond jubilee. The appointment of the
committee will be completed this week.
It is the purpose of those in charge of the
affair to make it imposing in every parti
cular and to raise a large fund. It is
probable that several thousand dollars
will be raised for tbe maintenance of a
maternity ward at the California Women's
Hospital. _____________
HASKELL GETS THE AX.
Populists Turn Against Their
Late Leader With a
Vengeance.
R»so utions Adopted Condemning the
Policy of the Spring Val ey
Water Company.
A warrant for the political suppression
of Burnette Ot. Haskelt, erstwhile "boss,"
was signed at a meeting of the Populist
County Committee, held last night at
915)4 Market street.
The trouble began when he secured an
office a few weeks ago immediately act
joininc the room with "People's party
headquarters, hours from 9 a. m. to 5 p. M."
on the door in the Murphy building. This
was regarded as a strategic move to se
cure legal prestige by continuity to the
headquarters of the party, and so a few
leading spirits quietly scratched the words
"People's party headquarters" off the
door, leaving only the office hours re
maining.
To complete Haskell's discomfiture it
was decided last night to remove the
headquarters to Home other building, and
J. H. Porter, W. Gofl and W. E. Walker
were appointed a committee of three to
look up new quarters and report at the
next meeting. The ostensible object of
removal was "to secure more commodious
apartments." ,
"The only other item of Interest which
occurred at the meeting was the adoption
of a drastic resolution condemning tne
ras and electric "trusts" and the Spring
Valley Water Company as "greedy cor
porations," and approving the action of
the Supervisors in examining the book* ot
the latter company.
ELECTRICAL WOBKERS.
They Gave a Successful Ball at Odd
Fellows' Hall.
The second annual ball of the Natienal
Brotherhood of Electrical Worsers, Local
Union No. 6, was held in Odd Fellows'
Hall last night. The ball was beautifully
illuminated for the occasion and there
was a large attendance of members with
their wives and sweethearts. The affair
was a great success in ever}' respect.
The committee of arrangements was
composed of F. N. Dodge, chairman; A.
C. Johns .in, B. J. Parker, W. N. Man nine,
W. L. Ben;ley; flonr manacer, B. J.

MARVELOUS ELECTRO MACHINE
Will Bo Used by Mi** Fleiahmann for
X Kay Investigation.
The first radiograph ever made on the
Pacific Coast with astatic electro machine
"a: made last week by Miss Elizabeth
Fleishmann at her laboratory at 1017 Oak
street. The result left no doubt of the
superiority of the stalic machine over the
ordinary induction coil and storage bat
tery. The pictures obtained were all that
could be desired in every way and were
produced in less time than by the method
in general use.
The machine referred to is the first of
its kind to arrive on the Pacific Coast,
and truly it is a marvelous piece of elec
tric construction. It will give ony known
kind of current and is so easily handled
that the electric enercy can be distrib
uted anywhere, in fact it is possible to
fill a room with the subtle fluid so that
sparks of fire will come from the walls and
furniture and any metal object will be
come a blaze of light.
But it is for making X-ray investiga
tions that Miss Fleishmann will u<e the
machine. It is much less work than by
tbe old method and so much more can be
accomplished. To make the picture of a
hand it is only necessary to place it in po
sition, connect the Crookes tube and turn
a handle for a few seconds. Tha. current
is generated by causing a number of glass
plates to revolve, which create what is
commonly known as "frictional" elec
tricity. This is connected with the tube
and makes the X rays.
Miss Fieishmann has been a conscien
tious student of the X rays for several
months and has done some of the best
work in the City. She has in mind sev
eral experiments of a most interesting
nature that are likely to throw some
light od the working of the senses. The
results will be made public from time to
time, and as she has one of tbe best outfits
in the country a great deal is to be ex
pected.

BAY PIRATES AT SAUBALITO.
They Broke Into a Store on Friday and
Stole a Valuable Parrot.
Sausalito is at present suffering from
the depredations of a gang of bay pirates,
who have entered several stores during
the past few days and carried off booty
more or legs valuable.
Andrew Nic ols' oyster grotto was forci
bly entered on Friday night and sundry
liquors and cigars were stolen. Mrs.
Nichols is also deploring the lons of a pet
parrot, said to be worth at least $100.
Polly was a general favorite, and albeit
occasionally adaicted to strong language
directly attributable to nautical influ
ences, was on the whole a well-conducted
bird.
A few days before this the new post
oftice was broken into, but fortunately for
the Government there was nothing for
the thieves to steal, since the Dontoffice
material had not been removed from the
old quarters; otherwise the loss might
have been serious.
The local police visited all the ships in
the harbor yesterday, including the U. S.
S. Petrel, but could find no trace of the
robbers.
About a Diamond Ring.
L. Plamondon, a dealer in jewelry in the
Crocker building, swore to a complaint in
Judge Low's court yesterday charging H.
Boyle of Mill Valley with felony embezzle
ment, rinruoi.don alleges that Boyle got a
diamond ring from him on the promise that
he would purchase it, but he refuses to pay for
or return It.
WHITE LABOR
FOR HONOLULU
on Foot to Substitute
A Plan
American Help for
Oriental.
W. N. Armstrong of Hawaii
Corresponds With Commis
sioner Fitzgera'd.
The Island Government Sail to Favor
the Settlement of American
Citizens.
Labor Commissioner E. L. Fitzsrerald
states that he has a bis scheme on foot.
It is nothing less than enlisting the co
operation of the Hawaiian Government in
the substitution of American white labor
on the islands for that of Orientals, now
generally employed there.
The inception of this scheme grew out
of a visit to thts City of Labor Commis
sioner W. N. Armstrong of Honolulu on
his ricent return from Japan ana iv.rtu
eal, where he had been sent by his Gov
ernment to study the labor question.
On his return he called upon Labor
Commissioner Fitzgerald, and in a con
versation with him learned much re
garding the advantages to be gained by
the employment of white labor as against
that of Oriental on the low standard ot
European countries.
As soon as Mr. Armstrong arrived in
his island home he made his report to his
Government and also set forth the in
formation he had obtained in his inter
view with Mr. Fitzgerald.
So forcibly did he lay the facts before
his superiors that he was requested to
consult with the managers of the sugar
plantations and obtain their views upon
the question.
This he did, and the encouragement he
received from them caused him to write
the following letter to the Labor Commis
sioner in this City:
Honolulu, H. 1., Jan. 2S, 18D7.
E. L. Fitzgerald £*g., tan Francitco, Cat.— MY
Dear Sir: I stud 10 you a coiiv ol the Ha
waiian Advertiser, in which there is a notice
of your report. 1 am now doing editorial
work on the paper.
There is much interest taken here in the
employment pi white labor on Hie plantations.
One of the largest is now considering the ques
tion of putting up the buildings necessary ana
so luling ;o you lor families. I have advised
the managers to Invite you down here at once,
so that you could advise intelligently on the
subject. 1 beiieve this will be done.
I informed them that you might not be able
to come at once owing the need of your pres
ence In Sacramento. The managers believe
that the arraugemeuts lor white labor should
be such that it may work separately from
either Japanese or Chinese. All this will in
volve considerable expense, but I believe it
will bo willingly made.
Few here have faith that you can furnish
reliable laborers, and they "will watch the
experiment with much interest.
The lime for makinit contracts and the time
for planting cane is after the month of May, so
there it no pressure for time. I wouid be glad
to know at what lime you could leave ana visit
us In case the invitation is sent you. Sin
cerely yours, W. H. Armstrong.
The scheme uppermost in the rrnnd ol
Mr. Fitzgerald is to supplant 30,000 Japa
nese, 15,000 Portuguese and 14.000 Chi
nese laborers on t c sugar plantations
aud substitute white American help, mak
ing suitable arrangements with the plant
ers and also with the Government for
their comfort and protection.
Under the present agreement between
the Japanese and the Hawaiian Govern
ments the sum of $112 must be paid the
former Government by the latter for
evoiy laborer landed on the islands.
The object of the present negotiations
is that this or a greater sum .should be
distributed toward bringing white Ameri
can families from California to Hawaii to
work in the sugar and coffoe plantations.
The Sandwich Island Government is
now wrestling with a problem which is so
perplexing that action upon the same is
paralyzed. The Japanese Government is
on the verge of demanding enfranchise
ment of the 30.000 Japanese now num
bered among its population, a power
which if extended the right of suffrage
would overwhelm iv strength the com
bined efforts of all other lorces. Geo
graphically situated so as to render the
immigration of this class the most con
venient ita plantations are now operated
almost exclusively by Japanese hands,
and, with no restriction upon the hordes
yet to come, the strained condition of
affairs in that republic augurs no future
well-being.
As that condition exists in the islands,
whether to relieve a state of approaching
disorder or to open a traffic in cheap
labor, advances have been made, as above
stated, to have white American citizens
take their places and drive the Orientals
back to their homes.
These facts, according to the Labor
Commissioner, clearly demonstrate the
difficulties- which are Drought about
through the importation of cheap con
tract labor witnout taking into considera
tion what kind of citizens ttiis pauper
labor will make and their ultimate in
fluence over the social conditions of the
country.
Mr. Fitzgerald says he will take atrip to
the islands as soon as be can be spared
from his office by the attention necessary
to look after oroposed lecisiative enact
ments which he now has in Sacramento.
His object in jjoing to Honolulu will be
to assure the Government ami the planters
that he can supply them with 10,000 white
laborers from this State in one year; but
different arrangements must be made for
tneir homes and accommodation from
that provided for the Japanese. He will
ask that the passage of the men and their
families be paid for either by the Govern
ment or the planters, or by both if aeree
able. He states that he will also ask that
all exb-tinp labor contracts with China,
Japan, Portugal and any and all countries
outside of the United State- be abrogated.
