THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, JUNE 24, 1897.
A Long Federal Court Liti
gation Has Just Fairly-
Kentucky Blythes Say Their
Last Reverse Just Set Them
on Their Feet.
Mrs. Hinckley Was an Alien, and the
Way Is Cleared for Long Liti
gation on That Ground.
A brie! which will be riled in the United
States Circuit Court to-day will reveal the
fact that the Biytbe estate is not yet out
of the wilderness of litigation in which it
has been wandering so many years, though
it reached a. clearing some time ago when
the Stale Supreme Court rendered its final
decision in favor of Florence Biytbe-
Hinckley, and the distribution was al-
lowed to proceed.
It was tbe general supposition that when
j the United States Supreme Court last
i month dismissed the writ of error filed by
the persistent Kentucky Blythes the bat
tle in the Federal courts had been ended
almost at its beginning, but E. Burke Ho!
--liday says that, peculiar as it may seem, it
was a fine thing for his ca«e that the Su-
I preme Court threw out the writ without
The Federal court battle has but just
I fairly begun. Florence and her attorneys
J may easily win in the end, but the battle
| remains to be fought, and it will be a long
j drawn out and somewhat harassing one.
j Possession of the $1,000,000 worth of prop
j erty which is being divided among the
j heir and the lawyers is a big advantage,
j but the Kentucky Blythes are righting on
j and even expect to reach the appointment
I of a receiver som • of these days.
Into this Federal court battle has re
cently come the man who bandied Presi
dent McKinlev's contest for his first seat
in Congress. This is Jeff Chandler, who
has acquired a National reputation at the
bar and in the cause of Democracy.
The award of the State courts is being
fought on the ground that an alien might
! not inherit the estate. The question was
j not xormally brought un in the State
| courts, but two sections of the code deal
i ing with aliens entered into the decision
jof the Slate Supreme Court. It is now
'sought to overthrow the decision of tbe
! State court on constitutional ground',
j and the question is purely one of law. If
! a decision be rendered that Florence
! Blythe, being an alien, could not legally
I inherit the estate, the "nextof kin" would
; have the field.
The Circuit Court case will reach an
issue before a great while, and, though
: the Biytbe estate collects rents and pos
: sesses title, the lawyers will have to fight
! for two or three years yet in self-protec-
I tion. The brief that will be filed to-day
! concerns only one of the mass of motions
: in the case.
AGAINST PENCIL PAKEBS.
Acting; Mayor Kottanzl Calls the Atten

Acting Mayor llottanzi addressed a let
ter to Chief of Police Lees yesterday on
the subject of the pencil fakers who infest
the City. <-i
He called attention to the law against
begcing on public thoroughfares, and
stated that ' the fakers simply made a
bunch of pencils an excuse to intrude on
pedestrians and the occupants of offices,
to their great inconvenience and the dis
comfort of the public. He asked that the
law bo strictly eniorced.

Captain Green of tbe Barkentine
Marion Will Not Be Able to Go
to tbe Southern Se:s.
The sealing and otter-bunting schooners
have had a hard time of it during the past
few months. Some of them have gone
down in their attempts at making a good
catch, while others have lain in port
awaiting a change in the weather. The
Hermann and the Rattler nad an ex
ceptionally bad time of it. Drags had to
be put out and oil bags were used to quell
the billows. Even then the wind took
c ntrol, and one of the officers on tbe
Hermann was picked up bodily and car
ried into the sea. The Rattier went with
the storm, but the Hermann held her own
during the entire gale. A heavy drag was
pnt out and a four-reeled mainsail was
set. This kept the vessel up in the wind
and in consequence when the blow was
over the Hermann was not a hundred
miles out of her course.
Water-front thieves are growing bold,
and in consequence half a dozen detec
tives are on watch along East street. The
robbery of schooners and steamers while
the otticrrs are asleep is an old story, but
the number of places along i»,e front that
have been opened under the very eyes of
the police is another story. About six
weeks ago Mors cart's stables were robbed
in broad daylight, and a few days ago the
safe of Crowley, the blacksmit , in the
same building, was robbed of $160. Last
night J. F. Cunningham of the J. F. Cun
ningham Company (in the same building)
clcs>d up a little later than usual. He is
confident that be Icckrd the safe and put
on the combination, but this morning the
place had keen opened and the cash
drawer forced. Over $120 in cash was
taken, but negotiable securities to a large
amount were not touched. The police are
on the trail of the thieves and arrests arc
expected at any moment. ;.. : •■
Captain Ed Green of the barkentine
Marion is wishing be never saw that ves
sel. Several years ago Green was master
of one of the whalers tbat wintered in the ]
Arctic. He did fairly well, and when
the vessel was paid off be had a few
thousand dollars coming to him. Shortly
afterward be became acquainted with a i
Scandinavian diver who knew the south
ern seas. The latter told stories of gold ]
that had escaped from Spanish treasure
ships and had become entwined in the
coral reefs. Samples of tbe coral were
shown, and Captain Green became infat
uated with the idea. A gold mine read y
to work was open to him, and lens
of thousand of dollars were ready
for the harvesting. Captain Green
purchased the bark Marion for a
little over $3000 and nearly $1500 was
spent in fitting her out. The diver re
mained in seclusion and lived on the fat
of the land. Latterly he has grown surly
and now demands a big cash bonus before
he pilots the Marion to the treasure island
in the Solomon group. Outside of his
vessel and bis prospects Captain Green
has nothing in the shape oi real estate,
and tbe strain has become too much for
bim. He is now in a private hospital and
the chances are the Marion will go out in
command of another master.

day by Cupid Dan forth of the

Cupid Danforth of the Marriage License
Department issued a permit to marry to
an extraordinary couple yesterday, the
combined ages of the contracting parties
being lot years.
When the p-ospectiva groom, John
Frederickson, appeared and asked for a
license Mr. Danforth supposed he was
asking something that concerned bis
children and was surprised when he said
he wanted the permit for himself. The
genial purveyor of licenses was still more
surprised when Frederickson ushered in
the prospective bride and announced her
age as 83 years.
Frederickson was extremely reticent re
garding the antecedents and address of
his tianceeand himself, merely stating that
tbey were wonting people who had
labored together for many years past and
had concluded that it would be easier to
go the journey of life together than single.
Both stated they bad never committed
matrimony before and that there was no
obstacle to their union.

Mrs. Marshall died on the 12th of last

Are Able to Do.
The Games and Miiary Numbers
Watchei by an Auiience of About
Several hundred persons watched the
soldiers at the Presidio yesterday morn
ing play bisetall, and in the afternoon
about 3000 watched the soldiers who took
part in the long programme of events,
athletic and military.
During the morning there wore three
parties of baseball, which were limited to
fifty minutes each. The first was between
Troop B and Company F, which was
marked by the excellent playing of
Noyes of the infantry, who proved a most
admirable catcher, and by some good
fielding and base-running. . When time
was called the game stood, infantry 6 and
cavalry 7. Then Troop land Battery X
went 10 the bat, and the game was
awarded to the cavalry by a core of Bto
1. The two winners then played a final,
and that resulted in a score of 14 for Troop
I and 4 for the intantry.
The victorious players were heartily
cheered by the men of the post, who were
divided as to tbe merits of the baseballists
at the start, but at the close they united
in giving applause to the winners.
In the afternoon the crowd commenced
to assemble at 1 o'clock. Tbe bleachers
were filled and there were many on the
prettily decorated crand stand and many
more outside the ropes.
The games were conducted under the
direction of the following named:

The men entered into the contests with
a great deal of spirit, and many of the
events were warmly applauded by the
spectators. The most exciting event was
tne novelty race, in which mounted men
carried an egc in a spoon, lit a cigar while
mounted, carried an onen umbrella, and
finally reached the finish carryine a glass
of water. In this Comeaux of Battery F
rode a horse that became fractious and
three times reared, and finally caused his
rider to lo«e bis balance and come to the
ground. The plucky fellow picked him

and started for the finishing line, and

turned, the horse reared again and he lost
