A Eig Fleet of Vessels Got In Yesterday From All Points of the World. Nearly All Will Hare
to Remain in the Stream for Some Time, as There Is Neither Wharf Room for Them
Nor Longshoremen to Handle the Cargo. ,
PEARLS FROM

A Fortune Made in Ten
Months by a Young
Merchant.
Eought Black Pearls for a Few
Dollars and Sold Them for
$2400 Each,
Many Vessels Arrive That Cannot Be
Discharged for Want of Long
shoremen.
Klondike has created a glut on the water
front Every steamer that can possibly be
pressed into tbe service has started for
Alaska and way ports ami evary long
shoreman that can possibly be secured has
been sent up and down the coast to help
out. Men have bee.i sent to all points
from Port Harlord to Port Townsend and
still the cry for more men comes in daily.
Wednesday last the British ship An
cona cot in from Nanaimo, 8.C.;- the
John D. Spreckeis from Mahukona, H. I.;
the Galilee from Tahiti; the S. C. Allen
from Honolulu, and later the British bark
Glengaber got in from Junin, Chile, with
a cargo of nitrate. All these vessels will
be held tor somn lime in the stream owing
to the lack of stevedores to handle the
cargoes.
The Ancona had a very rough time of it
passing Flattery. She was swept time
ana again by heavy sea», and one of them
took Ah Sing, the cook, overboard. Ah I
Sing was carrying a dainty dinner in his
hands which was to be sen* d for Captain
Robbins and the officers. The wave, now
ever. spoiled the programme. Captain
Roobins heard the cry, "Man overboard." ;
i He saw ttie Chinaman carried away on
i the crest of the wave, but the return wash
j brought the cooly back again. As be ;
l dashed up against the side of the ship the
I captp.in grabbed him by his "pigtail" and
i held on until tne starboard watcn came to
i his assistance and "John Chinaman" was
! hauled aboard.
. Captain Robbins has another Chinese
| named Ah Shee on board, and both of j
4^*em want to get back to China. They
have served continuously on the Ancona !
1 for eighteen months, and are now anxious j
to get back to the Flowery Kingdom. i
Each of them has about $500 coming to i
j him and with that sum they can live in j
luxury in their old home ior the next ten j
| years. They are more than, anxious to j
get away, and as Captain Robbins is under |
| a $1000 bond that they shall not escape,
1 he is equally anxious to see them on the
road to China. If the matter can possibly
be arranged Ah Sing and his companion
will leave on the Belgic on her next trip
for China.
The trip of the brigs John D. Spreckeis
and Galilee were uneventful. The Spreck- |

THE BAB FRANCISCO CALL, FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 1807.
Harris, a youne pearl-hunter. His opera
tion., in the South Seas show a return of
about $45,000 krone year's work. He left
| Sin Francisco a year ago by the barken
tine Tropic Bird with about $3000 wortn of
merchandise for trading purposes. On hi 1
arrival at Papeete, the capital of Tahiti,
he entered into negotiations with many of
the prominent houses, to purchase all
their supply of pearls and pearl-shells,
j All of his ventures turned out well. As
! an instance of his good luck, l.c purchased
: a black pearl from a native diver for $4
j and twenty-four hours later sold it for
: $2400 to Caspar Coppenratn, a Tnhitian
merchant.
Harris brought up a number of valuable
pearls with him, and yesterday presented
to D. Gutman, an old-time friend, a black
pearl valued at about $600. Harris in
tends to remain in the City about two
months and will then make another trip
to the islands. He intends going back on
tbe Tropic Bird, as he considers her a
lucky ship to travel on.
One of the smartest pieces of work done
! on the water front in many a day was per-
I formed in the loading of the Oceanic
! Steamship Company's Australia. She had
to go on the Hunters Point drydock for
repairs and only got back to her wharf on
1 Wednesday. At that time there was 1600
j tons of ireight awaiting her. During the
; previous twenty-four hours nearly 500 tons
! had arrived at the shipping office, but the
! clerks would not take it because there was
!no room on the wharf for it. People said
that Capiain Howard, superintendent of
j the dock, would never bs able to get the
! freight aboard and at the same time get
j the vessel away on time. Extra men
j were put on. The freight, including
I seventeen carloads of very heivy machin-
I cry, was handled without any trouble,
j and another 500 tons that arrived yester
! day will be placed in the hold of the ship
I before 10 o'clock this morning. It was a
j very heavy piece of work, and Captain
Howard and his men deserve all the
! credit possible for it.
Tbe schooner Bender Brothers, bound
for Bodega, had to put back yesterday.
While on her way up the coast she carried
away her center-board and had to put

The doctors in the city front Receiving
Hospital are having a lot of fun over an
incident which took place last night.
1 About midnight George Lillie, the night
watchman employed by tne Harbor Com
missioners, heard a man yelling for help.
I Evidently he nad fallen from Mission 1
j and was hanging on a pile. Lillie and Dr.
Hartley of the Receiving Hospital went to
j his assistance. They threw him a line
I and when begot it underhis arms the two
I men hauled him on to the wharf. Di
rectly be was on firm ground, without
i even saying "thank you," he turned pale j
; and ran away like a deer. The funny part
I of it came m. yesterday, when he put in
an appearance at the Receiving Hospital
; and. insisted that Dr. Hartley reimburse
: him for a two-foot rule he had lost in the
water. -'57377

The Western Union Company
Will Eun a New Copper
Wire to Chicago.
Inoreased Demand for News of the
Klondike One of the Main
Seasons.
The increased demand for telegraphic
facilities for transmitting the news of the
Pacific Coast to Eastern journals has
obliged the Western Union Telegraph
Company to project a new and important
enterprise.
Within a few days the company will be
gin erecting a new copper-wire system
stretching directly irom this City to Chi
cago. The company will place a large
number of men on this line, and unless
something unforeseen happens to prevent
the wires will be in place in between sixty
and ninety days. •
The wire to Chicaeo will be used exclu
sively for the San Francisco news service,
and it is expected that the crush of tele
graph matter now being experienced will
be ODviated.
Chicago being the principal distributing
point of the company, the handling of the
Pacific Coast news for points further East
will be a simple matter.' - * yy/. .*...

Fair Progress Made at the
Convention Last
Evening,
Three Important Reports Sub
mitted by Various Com
mittees-
Public Utilities to Be Acquired
Through the Issue of Bonds
by the City.
Charter building made fair progress last
night. Three committees submitted com
plete reports, and a number of recom
mendations and suggestions made by
committees and members were acted upon.
Hngh Craig acted as chairman. Shortly
after he bad called the merubars of the
charter convention to order, Mayor Phelan
came in. He was invited to take the chair,
to which he had been duly elected, but
declined, saying that he preferred being
on the floor.
Reports were received from the commit
tees on public improvements, public utili
ties, harbors and wharves, law and re
vision. ■"'*' ■.-■•
On behalf of Irving M. Scott, chairman
of the committee on public improvements,
the following was submitted:
It is resolved to recommend for your adop
tion the following provisions for the charter:
That the public improvements be under the
control and charge of a Board of Public
Works, consisting of three Commissioners.
That they be appointed by the Mayor.
Under the control of the said board shall be
the fallowing: The sewer system: streets,
highways, roads, etc.; parks and squares;
street cleaning; street lighting; bridges,
wharves ana dock.; the construction of pub
lic buildings under plans duly approved by
the departments, including schoolhouses and
fire-engine houses; the supervision of all
building construction and the repair, superin
tendence and maintenance of all public build
ings; water supply; street railways; the dis
posal of street sweepings, garbage, etc.; all
utilities acquired by the City to be under its
control. - ■■
That Golden Gate Park shall he, like other
parks, under the management and control of
the said board. ZZ-iyz
George K. Fitch, chairman of the com
mittee of public utilities, made the follow
ing report: : r ".
Whenever a petition, signed by a number of
the registered electors of the municipality,
equal to 20 per cent of the total vote cast at

pletion of -..worts by the municipality . for
lighting, water, telegraph, telephone, street
railroads or other public utilities, the cost of
which will be too great to be paid out of the
ordinary revenues of the municipality, tbe
said Board of Supervisors shall, within ninety
days utter the presentation of such petition,
call a special election at which shall bo sub
mitted to the qualified electors of the munici
pality the proposition ot incurring a debt by
the municipality for the purpose set forth in
the petition; provided, however, that at said
election there shall not be submitted ques
tions involving tho construction or other
ccqu. sition of more than one utility.
Upon presentation of such petition the Board
of Supervisors shall, with all reasonable dis
patch and due consideration of the time
within which the call is to be promulgated,
have plans and estimates of the work desig
nated in the petition made by three compe
tent engineers; the board shall also receive
and consider all offers made to it for sale of
works 01 the designated character already con
structed In whole or In part, and with the in
formation derived from the above designated
and all other sources estimate the cost of ac
quisition of such works as are ln said petition
designated.
. The ordinance calling the special election
shall be published once a day for thirty days
immediately preceding such election in some
daily newspaper of general circulation ln said
City of San Francisco; with It shall also be
published the call for the election, notice of
the proposed incurring of indebtedness and
i.b purpose, the total amount of such proposed
indebtedness to cone pood with the above
mentioned estimate, the number and charac
ter of the bonds proposed to be issued, the rate
of interest thereon, and the amount of the
special tax levy annually to be made for pay
ment thereof.
The committee on harbors and wharves,
of which Hugh Craig is chairman, made a
report recommending that the Jaw com
mittee bs instructed to: draw a J bill to
transfer from the . State and ; from the
Board of State Harbor Commissioners to
the • Board of _ Supervisors «of the City of
San Francisco the mangement and con
trol of all wharvej, water-front and harbor
property. 7 :; -.' : " :
Chairman Dohrmann of the committee
on revision submitted a recommendation
that joint meetings of certain committees
be held in order that their work might he
more intelligently carried on. The recom
mendation was adopted. -.."•'_ _
7 Gavin McNab of the law committee re
ported that his committee had carr.ed out
the instruction of the convention and had
drafted petitions to the Supervisors asking
that, body to call a special election for
fifteen freeholders to draft .a new charter
for the City and County of San Francisco.
Two forms of petition were presented, one
to be signed by citizens at large and the
other by members of the charter conven
tion. The work of tLe committee was ap
proved and adopted.
On motion of F. J. Healy ' it was tie
cid«d not to consider any reports of com
mittees at the meeting at which they
wero presented, the idea bein? to eive all
the members an opportunity to at vii' the
provisions of all reports before they are
called upon to act on them. :;'.-.%-*
M. C. Hassett propounded six written
questions which he' asked to have sub
mitted to the law committee to be an
swered at their earliest convenience. They
ali related to the probable effect of the
adoption of a new charter containing
certain provisions. '-. ■•77*-: i
The resolution introduced by J. M.
Reynolds, at the last meeting, outlining
in brief how the charier should be drawn,
was considered teriaiira. With the ex
ception of _ the first section, which pro
vided that tha charter should be ahcrt. all
I ■hi sections were referred to the appro
priate committees.
Stewart Menzies introduce I a resolution
recommending that the Board of Su
pervisor he increased to tntrty-six, and
! that they be given mil power to regulate
and fix the salaries of all City and County
officers. It was referre to the legislative
committee.
Adjournment was taken until next
Thursday evening.
WANTS HIS RING BACK.
Trouble Between Mrs. F. P.
Bronson, Teacher, and
Charles Fossey,
Captain Spillane Acts the Part of
Mediator With His Usual Tact
and Dispatch.
Captain SpTiane was unexpectedly
called upon yesterday afternoon to act as
arbitrator in a delicate ca.e and did so
with his usual lad ana dispatch. .*rr7v7-
About 3 o'clock Mrs. F. P. Bronson,
teacher in the John Swett Grammar
School on McAllister street, rushed up to
him in an excited manner, while he was
standing in the corridor and begged him
to arrest a man who had been annoying
her.
"I don't want anything done to him,"
she said, "but oniy to brink; him here and
I will explain matters. You must act
promptly or he will ret away."
The captain called Policeman Day and
Mrs. Bronson went outs de with him and
pointed out a man who was walking
slowly along McAllister street to Market.
Day went alter the man and Mrs. Brnn*
son returned to the captain and waited in
his office till Day and the man made their
appearance. In a few minutes the man
left and he was followed a few minutes
later by Mrs. Bronson, who had recovered
her composure.
The man was Charles Fossey, a waiter,
and, according to his story, he borrowed
$30 from Mrs. Benson, whom he had
known :or about two years, and save her
as security his diamond ring. Mrs. Bron
son refused to return the ring, and a few
days ago he sent an attorney with tbe $30
an.i demanding the return of the ring,
but without effect.
Yesterday afternoon he waited till she
came out of school and again asked for the
ring, but sbe refused and threatened to
have him arrested. He expressed bis
anxieiy for her to carry out her threat,
but she declined.
The captain told them it seemed to him
a case for the civil courts if Mis. Bronson
declined to have Fossey arrestee! for dis
turbing the peece and cave them both
