A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE OF OPINION Twenty Changes Will Be Made by the School Directors. ,'._ CENSURE WAS NOT INTENDED. Principals Say the Meaning cf Their Words Was Mis construed. THE BOARD WILL INVESTIGATE. The Responsibility of the Turmoil Will Be Shifted to the Shoulders of the Pedagogues. The time that the monkey anrt parrot had or tbe battle of the Kilkenny cats were pleasant little diversions compared with what will bappen in the rooms of the Board of Education during the next few weeks. When the solid nine started to make wholesale changes to accommo date its friends, it little thought that the storm that has arisen would materialize, and it was not prepared for the roar of in dignation that has gone up from all direc tions. Now that the scheme has been exposed, there has been a scurry to hedge, and in stead of carrying on the investigation themselves, the directors are prepared, to use the language of one of their number, to "allow the teachers to fight it out among themselves." Fighting it out means charges and re criminations of all kinds and a merry lit tle time all around, and the directors have decided to throw the responsibility off their own shoulders and outo those of the pedagogues. Several teacher-" who were reported as unsatisfactory either in discipline or in struction by their principal, hare pre pared for a royal battle, because they say that the reports are the result of spite and that they are less to blame for any lack of order or attention than their superiors. Some have decided to appear with attor neysto show that they have been misrep resented and will bring counter-charges against the principals. "The easiest way we can se- out of this j difficulty," said Director Waller yester day, "is to let, the tfachers fight it out j among themselves, and show where ;ney have been misrepresented if they can. "If there has been any spite work it will soon develop, and the board can be governed by what it learns while the in vestigation is going on. "in some instances there is certainly something peculiar about the way these reports read. "A short lime ago a committee from this board visited a school where a certain teacher is employed and made inquiries as to her standing. "We were given the most glowing ac counts of her efficiency both as an in structor and disciplinarian, the principal seeming to take pleasure in recommend ing her. "In the face of this she is reported as 'fair' as a disciplinarian, and is not spoken of in one way or the other as an instructor. Reports from schools where she previously taught are strongly in her favor, and she as-well as ourselves want to know the reason of this sudden change of heart. She says she will bring an attorney to conduct tier case. "At any rate all who wish will be ac corded a hearing, and if teachers have been misrepresented they will be vindi cated. "The plan of the board now is to make a large number of changes to harmonize the department. I have had lour appli cations from teachers who fear that after what has been published they will not be on a pleasant fooling with their superiors. Other directors have also had applica tions, and I think altogether that there will bo about twenty transfers." There appears to be quite a difference of opinion regarding the construction of sentences and the meaning of words in the English language among the edu cators of the City. The reports of the principals of the various schools on the qualifications of the teachers under uiem has stirred uo considerable feeling, and those who have been censured have taken occasion to ctiil for "specifications." From the developments resulting from this action on the part of tr.e teachers it appears that the word "fair" is not used as a criticism, but means "satisfactory.'' Frank Morton, principal of the Lowell High School, yesterday expressed himself as deeply regretting the construction that had been put upon his report concerning J. L. Crittenden, which appeared as "fair." Mr. Morion took occasion to place himself right in the matter to Mr. Crittenden in the presence of Mr. Lill ie, and stated that when he reported him as "fair" he in tended that it should mean that his work was entirely satisfactory. He further specifically stated that the work of Mr. Crittenden had always been in every way perfectly satisfactory, not only to himself, but that it had been accepted by the uni versity as such. He was sorry tndt a mis construction had been placed upon his re port, and desired to have the matter made plain in order that no idea of incompe tency on the part of Mr. Crittenden should obtain among the people. ' The following letters regarding the case of Miss Julia A. Murphy are self-explana tory: Alfred Lyser Esq.— Dear Sir: Win you kind ly let me know if Miss Julia Murphy is satis factory to you as a teacher. Ed. L. Head, Director. E. L. Head— DeaeSik: In reply to yours of the 20th inst, I will say that Miss Julia A Murphy has never been, nor is she now.unsatls factory to me either as a disciplinarian or as a teacher. Very truly yours, Albert Lyser, principal. Captain A. J. Itsell, teacher of the ninth grade in the Hearst Grammar School on Waller street, believes that a great injus tice has been done him. He is one of those who appeared on the blacklist in this uncomplimentary way: "Qualifica tions as instructor unsatisfactory (see note); ability as a disciplinarian unsatis factory; Hearst Grammar School." In discussing these remarks Captain Itsell said: "I think that all of this is uncalled for and unnecessary. It may be that poli tics have something to do with it, but I am of the opinion that the principal of the school had more to do in holding me up to disgrace tban any one else." He went on to say that about two months ago he was removed from the Washington Grammar School to the Hearst Grammar and that the chance was not of bis seeking nor to his liking in the JeasL He had been under Principal T. B. White for a long time and bad no reason to believe that his services were not appre ciated. According to Captain Itsell's statement, whsn he arrived at the Hearst School he found that the discipline was anything out eood. He was assigned to the ninth grade— the graduating class— where the pupils were almost men ami women grown. The boys were particularly trou blesome, and while large enough to be have themselves they were still none too larce to be made to toe the mark. ln order to make the young men keep oraer, Captain Itsell said, he was obliged to administer corporal punish ment on more tnan one occasion. This he did by striking them across the hands with a leather strap, kept in the school for that purpose. Tins was against the prin ciples of Mrs. M. A. Wood, the principal, who declared that moral suasion was bet ter than the strap. When he learned of the principal's wi.nes Cap'ain Itsell said that he submitted to her higher authority, although it went against the grain to do so. Continuing he said: "Since then there has been more or less friction be tween the principal and me on account of this corporal punishment matter. How ever, I have always bowed to the higher authority and sent all ca_es for punish ment to her as she desired." Captainrltsell went on to say that he believes tp&i Mr». Wood had much to do with the unpleasant position. in which he is placed. It is necessary for the prin pals of the schools to send annual re li rts to the Superintendent as to the on u hun of iheir schools and the qualifica tions of the teachers under i heir command. He always _uppo?e I that those reports were private, but in this instance he believes that Mrs. Woods' report fell into other hands, and the fact that he insisted on making stubborn boys keep order had been used to his undoing. Captain Itsell derives his title from the fact that he held the position of captain in the late war, in which he served for lure* years. He has been a teacher in the School Department of this City for the past twenty-six years. Said he: ''In that time the Board of Education should have found out whether or not I was in competent or a poor disciplinarian. Com ing as this time as it does, I think that this treatment is unnecessary and very unjust." f « PIERCED HIS HEART Tragic Death of Fred Wui bern While Cleaning His Rifle. Struck the Trigger With the Ramrod and Discharged the Gun. Fred ri. Wnlbern, 18 years old, was in stantly killed last night while cleaning his Marlin rifle in the family residence, 1900 Filbert street. This is the third death in the Wuibern family within the last three years. His mother died from natural causes three years ago, and his father was left with the care of a family of six children. The elder Wuibern was a deputy in the office of Assessor Siebe. He was troubled with heart disease, and one night after he had turned on the gas in th* bathroom he swooned and was asphyxiated. Young Wuibern went on a hunting vaca tion recently and returned last Friday. At half-past 5 o'clock last evening be proceeded to clean his rifle — a Marlin re peater of 25-caliber. He fastened a rag to the end of the ramrod, and in order to prevent ihe rag from sticking in the breech he placed a cartridge there. Then he proceeded to clean the outside of the Darrcl, and in doing so the end of the rod struck the hammer and the trigger fell and discharged the weapon. The young man was silting on a child's* rocking chair, and the muzzle of the rifle was on a line with his heart, so thai the bullet pierced the aorta and he sank to the floor a corpse. . The case was reported at the Morgue, and Deputy Coroner Hallet made an in vestigation of the circum.t.nces of the shooting. He reached the conclusion that it was purely accidental, and allowed the body to remain in the home of the de ceased. Wuibern was recording secretary of Presidio Parlor No. 194. He was at the meeting of his parlor last Monday night, when he received an en thusiastic greeting from the brothers, and a vote of thanks was tendered him for his efforts on behall of the organization. THE HEW ASSOCIATION. A Meeting of Amateur Athletes Will Be Held on Friday Evening. Some of the amateur athletes of this City who are opposed to the manner in which the Pacific Athletic Association conducts its affairs have called a special meeting of amateur athletes and clubs which are interested in amateur sports, for the purpose of forming, if possible, a California Amateur Athletic Association. The meeting will convene at the Olym pic Club on Friday evening next, and un less something drastic is accomplished in the way of organization, the chances are thai the project will drop out of sight, as the leaders of the scheme in prospect have concluded that unless th«» clubs will lend their support, it will be absurd to advance any further in the plan of organization. The representatives of the Pacific ad visory board do not hesitate to say that the proposed California Amateur Athletic Association will never amount to any thing unless it has the sound advice and assistance of the Amateur Athletic Union, which is the parent body of nearly all the large and prominent amateur athletic clubs!oi America. They also contend tnat the men who are at the head of tlie new movement to form a great Pacific Coast Athletic Asso ciation of Amateur Clubs are quasi ama teurs and Know comparatively noth ing concerning the rules which govern amateur sports. OWing to the taint of professionalism which has pervaded this City for months several amateur boxers have become afflicted with the contagion. They are anxious for ihe opportunity to delve their paws into the golden sack, and nothing less than golden skekels will induce some of them to box a four-round bout in an amateur club lor the edification of club members. Of course there are exceptions, but the bona-riae amateur boxer is fast becoming a rare bird in ibis City and it is with the object in view of teaching those amateurs who have a predilection for professional lame a. tound lesson tbat the board of governors of the P. A. A. imposed severe punishment on the renegades who had been found guilty of transgressing the amateur rule-. . The; board of governors has acted in good faith with the amateurs and, indeed, it is through its strict rulings ihat the Olympic Club and other promi nent amateur clubs have now whatever little amateur talent they possess. The true amateur athlete who stands aloof from any and all taint of professionalism cannot help but support the action of the governing board of the A. A. U. in its struggle to suppress professionalism on this coast. THE j^lN FRANCISCO CAI_I_, WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 897. A NEPHEW OF RAINEY GOES FREE The Governor Has Par doned Burglar Dave Smith. PRISON BOARD NOT CONSULTED. No Eeason Offered for the Ar bitrary Action of the Executive. ONE WAY OF SEALING A COMPACT. Smith Had Served but Three Tears Out of Eight and Has a No torious Record. There seems to beno limit to the friend ship that has suddenly grown up between Governor Budd and Sam Rainey. The executive has gone so far in his efforts to please the boss as to pardon one of the most notorious burglars that ever was called upon to do time. Whats make the affair still more interesting is the fact that the released convict is a nephew of Rainey. Dave Smith is the man who has been restored to liberty. The order opening the doors of San :entin for him was made late yesterday afternoon by the Governor in Sacramento. The action was an arbitrary one, and no reasons were ad vanced by the executive. Moreover, it was taken without any consultation with the Board of Prison Directors, which in itself is a proceeding so extraordinary as to excite comment at any time. It is customary when a Governor takes it upon himself to pardon a convict to give elaborate reasons for his work. Only in cases of extreme emergency has this example been resorted to. What the dire c.rcumstances are that called for Smith's release at this time, when he has still five years of an eight years' sentence to serve, is a secret that will probably remain be tween the Stockton statesman and the local boss of the Democracy. Smith was convicted in IS9_ of burglary before Judge Belcher after a rather spirit ed trial. His crime was committed dur ing the height of the gubernatorial cam paign, his victim Doing no less a person than M. M. Estee, the Republican candi date opposing Budd. Estee was aosent on a stumping tour in the northern part of the State. His residence at 1001 Leav enworth street was left in charge of the servants. Smith was not Blow to lay his plans. In company with a confederate named Botk in he appeared suddenly before the Estee mansion one afternoon during the absence of tbe housekeeper and, gaining admittance by a passkey, proceeded to ransack the place from top to bottom. They even had the effrontery to ring a telephone for an express wagon, into wbich they loaded the booty. Accumu lations of thirty years on the part of Estee disappeared. Heirlooms, mementos of all sorts, brica brac gathered in many places, jewelry and plate were loaded into the wagon as so much freight in broad daylight. Among the articles taken were the emblems pre sented to Estee as grand master of tne Masonic lodge at several cornerstone ceremonies. Even the clothing of the members if the household was taken by the thieves. The booty was disposed of in pawn broking shops for what it would bring, and it was through this avenue that the police gained the clew that ultimately re sulted in the at rest of Smith and his com panion. All ot Rainey's influence was brought to bear to save his kinsman from the penitentiary, but in vain. The pris oners were sentenced to San Quentin lor eight years each after pleading guilty. Previous to his conviction Smith had borne an unenviable record. Through the influence of his uncle he had obtained a position as driver of engine 3, but his con duct and predatory habits were too pro nounced for the late Chief Scannel!, and he was discharged alter a short period. Rainey next got him a position under As sessor Hoi/., but he soon drifted back to his old habits. His antecedents be carefully concealed, but it was known that he was the son of the notorious Maggie Smith, who gained fame asa keeper of a Morton-street house. At one time he kept a resort on Howard sireet, near Third, which in time became so notorious that the police reiused him a license. Governor Budd's action is a surprise to his friends. It has been known for some time that he and Rainey had joined forces, but nobody supposed that he had so far fallen into the clutches of the boss as to pardon Dave Smith. The prisoner's friends have been confident for some days past that he would be released shortly, but the arbitrary action of the Governor in granting the pardon without consult ing the prison board has astounded even them. How Rainey will pay the debt of the re lease ol his notorious kinsman remains to be seen.- Budd has the itcli for office, and of course the Democratic boss may be re lied upon now to throw his forces in favor of the man from Stockton. Interesting development's are looked for. The Prison Directors, it is reported, are about lo rebel at this high rising over their heads. But possibly after all Rainey may be able to avoid such complications. With the headquarters of the Democratic machine transierred to Sacramento Chair man Alvord and his State Committee purists are preparing for a glacier. JOKED MR. AMBROSE. Stockton-Street 1 roperty-Ownera Take Advantage of tho Klondyke .Ex citement. Some enterprising property-owners on Stockton street, between O'Farrell and Geary, having a grievance against the Su perintendent of gtreets, took advantage of the Klondyke excitement last night to make their woes known and created no end of amusement for a short time. The street on the block mentioned has been torn up for some time past and will be repaired when the Superintendent gets ready to continue the work. Last night, when the theater - goers passed the corner of O'Farrell and Stock ton, they saw a young man industriously di-fine in the sand, while a gang of urchins picked up ore and nuggets from all directions. About were signs reading about this way:' "rfy fy y. - Klondyke nuggets have been fonnd. For claims apply to tne Superintendent of Streets. This street will be paved iv the sweet by and by. • -. About 200 people were collected about the diggings at 7:30 o'clock, cheering tho solitary miner on and reading the signs. CAMPAIGN BEGUN BY HOTEL MEN San Francisco to Be Made a Summer Convention City. WORK OF EDUCATION STARTED. First Gun Fired at the Palace Hotel Yesterday Aft ernoon. CENTRAL COUNTIES ARE INTERESTED A Bureau of Information to Be Es tablished in the City of New York. "San Francisco, the summer convention City of the United States." This is the slogan to be used in a cam paign of education that is.to be carried on by the California Hotel Association. The first gun in the great campaign was fired yesterday at a meeting held at the Palace Hotel.. The primary object of the projectors of the new movement is to secure for San Francisco one or more of tbe political con vention, of 1900, the National Encamp ment of the Grand Army of the Republic in 1899 and the Triennial Conclave of the Knights Templar in 1900. They have been encouraged to this ac tion by the unqualified success which marked the International Christian En deavor Convention from every point of view. The ultimate object is to educate the people of the East to an appreciation of the attractions and advantages California has as a place for home-building for the industrious. At the meeting of the California Hotel Association yesterday there were present the following mem Ders: S. F. Thorne, picsident of the association, representing the Grand Hotel; 11. H. Warfield, secre tary of the organization, representing the California Hole* and the Hotel Raiael of San Raiael; J. C. Kirk patriot of the Pal ace, G. P. Sne, l of the Hotel Vendome of San Jose, K. B. Soule of the Lick House, Colonel J. P. Jackson of the Napa Soda Springs, and G. W. Lynch, representing the Palace, the Coronado and the Del Monte. The principal business transacted was the adoption of the following resolution: Resolved, Tiiat this association put itself in communication with the different boards of trade of the counties ot Central Caliiornia for the purpose of devising ways snd means to properly advertise that portion of the State in the East, and to maintain a bureau of infor mation in -New York City. In furtherance of the object of this resolution G. W. Lynch was appointed a committee of one ,0 take the matter ln hand, and to visit the Boards of Trade or other representative bodies in the coun ties north of Tehachapi, with a view toward securing their co-operation. As soon as a sufficient number of in terior counties have been interested in the work a meeting of the representatives of the various bodies will be called to con vene in this City and to discuss future plans. There is no intention to say or do any thing that will even appear to detract from the prestige of the southern portion of the State, but no effort will be spared to bring to the attention of the visitors to the State the merits of the central and northern parts of the commonwealth. It has been demonstrated in the past that very few of the people who come to San Francisco visit any of the section lying in the vicinity, witn th» exception of a few points, such as San Jose, Santa Cruz, Monterey and other towns that makeup part of the regular tourist itinerary. It is proposed to bring other sections of North ern and Central California into more prominence by inducing visitors to maKe trips to San Kafael and the points of in terest in Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties, and also the counties to the east of these. It is claimed that within a radius of fif teen miles from San Francisco all the plants and funis thai are grown in South ern California can be seen, and in just as great perfection as south of the Tehachapi Pass. H£o So far as the claims of San Francisco to become the summer convention city of the United Slates are concerned it is pointed out that we have ample transpor tation facilities and hotel accommoda tions, and that people receive better treatment at the hands of hotel proprie tors than at any other city in the country during convention periods, as has been repeatedly demonstrated and generally acknowledged by visiters. . PEEJUEY IS CHAEGED. Charles K. Carey, Salesman, Arrested on the Complaint of His Di vorced Wife. Charles K. Garey, salesman in the Hub clothing-house, was arrested last night on a warrant charging him with perjury. The complaining witness is Mrs. Frances B. Garey, his divorced wife, who alleges that in making his affidavit on the com plaint for divorce he made accusations that he knew to be false. Gajey says that ho and his wife came here from Pittsburg, Pa., about eighteen months ago. Last January he took his' wife back East to her mother because she was running around too much to please him, and told her that he would send enough money to support her provided she remained there, which she promised to do. He went to New York and had just got a situation there when she made her ap pearance. -He. was so .disgusted with her at not keeping her promise that he came onto this City, and in April commenced the suit for divorce on grounds of inhu man treatment and being constantly in the company of other men. He obtained the divorce last month. All this time he did not know where his wife was and was surprised to find that she had returned to the City. .. JABEZ . HOWE ILL.

Figel Case Shows Its Hand- Dave Oarvalho Says the Hoff man Receipt Signature Is Genuine. Ex-Judge Louderback Claims to Be Backed Up by Gumpei and Kytka. Under the lash of adverse criticism the defense in the case of Theodore Figel, charged with embezzlement, gave the first intimation yesterday of the kind of battle they intend waging against the prosecu tion. The latter so far have bent their efforts more to prove forgery than to clinch the embezzlement charge. Whether it is with the purpose of laying a foundation of a civil suit has not yet developed, but the fact remains that more attention is being paid to the $9500 receipt which Figel claims was given him by Isaac Hoffman and which the other side claims is a forgery than to numberless alleged em bezzlements and even the claim that de fendant committed murder. In an issue of one of the afternoon papers Monday a statement was made to the effect that the great Eastern expert on handwriting, David N. Carvalno, had been employed by the defense to examine the Hoffman receipt and that he had not been retained to testify, as he found that the signature was a forgery. To refute this, ex-Judge Louderback yesterday pro duced the following letter from the ex pert, with the accompanying remark that Expert Kytka, who was paid for his services by the prosecution, was not called by them as a witness because he gave his opinion that Hoffman's signature was genuine, and that the defense would put him on the stand to prove it. Here is Car vaiho's letter: San Francisco, July 23, 1897. Hon. Davis Louderback— Hear Sir: At your request I to-day made a cureiul examination of the receipt' dated May 18, 1897, for $9500, and signed "Isaac Hoffman" in juxtaposition with certain standards of Mr. Hoffman'- genu ine signature in the presence oi Judge Camp bell. I have to report to you as my opinion and judgment that the signature to said in strument was signed by the same person who wrote the exemplars which were submitted to me, and it Mr. Hoffman wrote tbe exemplars Mr. Hoffman is the same person who signed said receipt "Isaac Hoffman " Answering your request relative to my giving testimony in this case, I regret to state tnat my home en gagements are mandatory and I am compelled to leave for New York to-night, having com pleted arrangements so to do some days ago. Yours, respectfully, David N. carvaliio. So much for the first clash between the handwriting experts. Attorney Ach, when the court session began yesterday, called expert Peter Davis Horton, a writing teacher ol Oakland who spent thirty years in the study of chir ography. He testified to having exam ined the $9560 receipt and to having com pared the signature thereon with the ac cepted signatures of Isaac Hoffman. In his opinion the signature on the receipt was a forgery. He gave blackboard dem onstrations showing the Hoffman charac teristics in writing which he claimed he could not observe in the receipt submitted to him. In explaining himself the expert used a few words not generally heard in a police court, as Judge Campbell stated, some of them being: "Conoidal," "heterogene ous," "rubric" and others, the strangeness causing a ripple 01 laughter. "Is there any cross-examination, Gen eral asked the court of Attorney Barnes. "Let him go, he's not through yet," an swered counsel. "You may laugh, gentlemen," put in the witness, "you may not understand what I'm talking about, but that's not mv fault nor that of the dictionary." On cross-examination by Barnes, wit ness testified that he had been a witness in the Davis will case and ho had declared the will a forgery. He also worked on the Durrant murder case, but he was not called as a witness. 'Who pave you that case ? Was it Cap tain Lees?" asked the court. Witness gave no answer. "You were given some pipers to ex amine and you were not called on to tes tify—ls that it?" said Judge Campbell. Again no answer wat made. Witness mentioned the Fair will case, the Martin case and others he had worked upon. "You've always had good jobs, then?" asked Barnes. Again no answer. The case will be re sumed this morning.

A woman find* ample compensation for her trials and wor- ries and bothers in the soft, clinging little body nestling close, to her own-in the trustful clinging of the little hands, and the love light in the little eyes. "A woman's health is her dearest pos- session. Good looks, good times, happi- ness, love and its continuance, depend on her health. Almost all of the sick- ness of women is traceable directly or indi- rectly to some derangement of the organs distinctly feminine. Troubles of this kind are often neglected because a very natural and proper modesty keeps women away from physicians, whose insistence upon ex- amination and local treatment is generally as useless as it is common.
