TAME SPORT AT INGLESIDE Three of Five Favorites Succeeded in Taking Furses. Our Climate and Miss Eemsen Were the Long-Priced Winners, Lady Hurst Was First in the Mile acd a Quarter Run— Lone Prin cess Led Her Field Out. TLie bookmakers complain of a light rlay at Ineleside track, but betting peopie cannot be expected to unlimber to any great extent on tho class of horses per forming in the races thus far. "When some of tbe really "great" horses that are supposed to now be nibbling on oats and reposing contentedly in their stalls, ap pear with the silk up, then the ring can Jock for better times. All summer long native racegoers nave had their brains racked endeavoring to pick a winner out of a jumbled-up mess of cheap horseflesh at the country lairs, and now tnese pa tient, plodding speculators consider them s;lves entitled to a change. The attendance at the track yesterday wai hardly as large as on the preceding days of the meeting, judging Irom the lightly inhabited grand stand. Five races ■were run off, but the sport was dull and lifeless. Favorites were successful on three occasions. The best effort of the afternoon was the mile and a quarter selling race, captured by the favorite, Lady Hurst, ridaen by McDonald. Double Quick at first opened a3to 2 choice, receding to 3 to 1. The big coin went in on Lady Hn^rst, the mare closing at 3to 2 in the majority of the books. Double Quick, with Clawson up, ran under restraint for a mile, but when pressed by the lavorite couhi. not respond and gave up tne race. The Lady then ■won handily in 2:095£ irom i'eti j r the Sec ond, al2to 1 chance. Double Quick was hnrd ridden to bent Daylight for the show. Owner Dan Honig took the opening seven-iiirlon<: run for maidens ■with the four-year-old St. Carlo gelding Oar Cli mate, against which the ring laid 12 to 1 at post time, in a hard drive iittle Jen tins got him over the wire a nose beiore Bufalba, from the Boots stable. The hot tip, Whirlwind 11, played down lrnni fours to 9to 5, showed speed for away ami then fell bacs in the bunch. Tweiva two-year-olds faced the barrier in liie next, a six-furiong riash for two 3-ear-old9. The Burns A: Waterhouse en try. Bliss Rucker, looked far and away th* best, and ruled a warm 3 10 5 favorite. A straggling start, in which he was away poorly, blasted his chances, and tie was never prominent. Miss Kemsen was first nearly the entire route, and «yon cleverly nearly t»o lengths ahead of i'restar, a >on of imp. Prestonpans, at one time 50 to 1 in the bebing. Catawba njade a hne run from one of the rear positions, finishing a. bane-up third. The Eastern filly Lone Jfrincess showed her heels to two fast spriDters in the fourtn number on the programme, a sellinsr affair over six furlongs, fche was a6to 5 favorite throughout the betting, and after lying second to Zamar lo the stretch, as sumtd the lead, and won ridden out over a length in advance of Honig's entry. Par the the second choice, finished strong, a close third. Fog oDscured much of the view of the concluding race of the day, a six furlong selling spin, for which Dun boy was backed down to 7to 10 favoritism. Piggott, who had the leg up, managed to beat the gate, and although the L ivalist gelding was stopping at the end, lasted long enough to beat Lost Girl tliree-parts of a length, Schreiber's fcweet William was third. TRACK ITEMS. Hennessy was set down for the balance of the meeting by Starter Caldwell for pet ting left at the post with Bliss Rucker. It is said the fcalvator colt did not carry Tery much stable coin.

Judge Ooffey and a Jury Listening to the Testimony of Mrs. M. M. Kearney. Mrs. Mattie ML Kearney continued her testimony in Judge Coffey'i« court yester day concerning the condition of the late John S. Capron at the time his last will was written. There is a contest on hearing to deter mine which is really his last will, as he left two documents, one a regularly wit nessed instrument, executed in the usual way, in which his stepdaughters, Mrs. Kearney, Mrs. Miinion and Miss Capron, were liberally provided for, and another document of later date, holographic in form, in which the preater share of the property is bequeathed lo the children of Judge A. L. Fitzgerald of Nevada. This has caused considerable harsh feel ing between the opposing claimants, and Mrs. Kearney frequently utters some sharp things in spuaking of Judge Fits pera.d. Afier telling the manner in which Mr. Capron signed the will giving her and her sisWs the bulk of the estate Mrs. Kearney returned to what the de ceasen h:-d said about Judge Fitzgerald. She testified : My father. Mr. Capron, spoke repeatedly of Judge Fitzgerald's Visits. He frequently told me that the Judee talked *.o liim. about giving me property tons, aud how foolish it was to put his property out of his possession. My father said that Judge Fitzgerald was all very nice b3iore u»e world, but that he was very slippery. trier told me many things about the- private affairs of tile Judge, but I do not think that has any bearing 011 this case. At one time in March, 1897, Judge Fitz gerald took luncheon nt the Capron bouse, and Mr. Capron said he was very fortu nate to have ihree such dauchters to take care of him, as he was an old man and cave us much trouble. To this Judge F.tzgerald gave his assent, saying that Mr. Capron was indeed fortunate. At the time Mr. Caprou shot and killed himself a telegram was sent to Judge Fitzgerald informing him of the tragedy, which oc curred ut 2 o'clock In the morning of Tues day, June 29, IM)7. Mr?. Kearney said:| My mother's maiden name was Lniira A. Nay. Her first husband was Charles \V. Wnr reu. Madre and I were born of lhal marriage. My Bister, Mamie Greer, was Dorn of another marriage. Mother was . divorced from Air. Warren, and he kept two of the children, the boys, and we went with mother. She married again, a Mr. Greer. and Mamie, who was born in Eureka, in 1P74, v. as his child. Mother was divorced from Mr. Greer and ihen married Mr. Capron in 1875 in Eureka. We all regarded Mr. Capron a* our actual father, and never knew aught else lor some time. Madge and 1 knew it as far back us I can rememb.-r, but Mamie did not know It until she grew ud. Mr. Caprou used to piay ci-rds at homo for amusement. His favorite gam»s were "Blue Dick" and casino. He was fond of talking oik alone, but frequently he was accompanied ty a relative of his stepdaughters. THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1897. GLAD TIDINGS FOR THE HATCHETMEN. Judge Campbell yesterday decided that highbinders can carry an arsenal on their persons, if necessary, so long as they do not appear on the public thoroughfares. Ah Tom and Ah Jim were arrested by Sergeant Shea and his rquad on Novem ber 1 at 717 Pacific street, the headquar ters of the Hop S.ng Tong. They were in the assembly hall at the timo, and when searched Ah Tom had two murderous looking knives, one up each sleeve of U:3 POOR AND NEEDY MOURNED HIM The Body of the Late Cor nelius O'Connor Now Lies in the Vault. Pathetic Tributes of Love From Those Whom His Charity Relieved. Simple but Impressive Ceremonies Marked the Obsequies at House and Cemetery. With services that were touclilngly sad owing to their simplicity the last rites over the mortal remains of Cornelius O'Connor were performed at his iate resi dence, 825 O'Farrell street, yesterday morning. With the political life end business energy of the dead man the whole com munity is ?7ell acquainted, but tbore was a aide (o his stay on earth that was hid den because of the unostentatious charac ter of the man. But at tiie obsequies this side was brought out — not in eulogy of priest or praise of tho^e who had worked by his side. While the throne of friends and relatives overcrowded the spacious parlors and halls of the residence and gave testimony to the respect they oore their departed friend there was another throng patiently waiting on the outside until the last words were said, the last sone sung — waiting only to pay mute tribute to their benefactor who had been a friend to them in distress and when sore need pressed at their heels. The tribute of this waiting crowd, who sat on the doorsteps and curbstones, was pathetic in its silence and tears. They Knew of a phase in the life of Cornelius O'Connor ihat had been hidden from his most intimate friends and their unspoken woe was a greater tribute than s«rmon and nntliem tXiat were heard within the closed doers. The simple house services of the Catho lic church were solemnized by the Very Rev. Father J. J. Frondergast, Ticar general of the archdiocese, and in a brief address he told of the virtues of the man who has gone. He spoke of him as a Christian and as a man, and impressed those present with his earnestness. The musical services, which wera in keeping with the simplicity that marked the ceremonies, were conducted by H. J. Stewart, organist of Trinity Churcn, who was assisted by MiS3 Millie Flynn and Donald de V. (Jrauam. Miss Flynn santj Gounod's "There Is a Green Hill Far Away," Mr. Graham sang Koenen's "Come Unto Me," aid Mr. Stewartren dered several requiem voluntaries. These services with two prayers were concluded at 11:30 and the body was borne to the waiting hearse by the following pall bearers: Jonn W. Mackay, Richard V. Day, John D Spreckels. Irving M. Scott, Fulton G. Berry, Grove P. Ayers, Reuben H. Lloyd and John Rosenfeld. The cortege proceeded to Calvary Cem eiery, where the body was placed "in the receiving vault until the mausoleum at Cypress Lawn is completed, when the body, with that of his late wife, will be re moved and placed in their final home. There were no ceremonies at the ceme tery beyond the regular interment riles of the church. Th« (iarbage Ouestion.

TO SCAN MOUNT HAMILTON STARS A New Director to Be Chosen at the Next Meeting of Regents. The Government May Establish a Magnetic Station on the Mountaini Inferior Patchwork in the Construc tion of the Gymnasium Shower Baths at Berkeley. The regents of the university decided at the !-esjion held yesterday to elect at the regular meeting next month a director of the Lick Observatory to succeed Professor I". 8. Holden, who-e resignation ii to take effect January 1, IS9B. In the regular rou tine of business yesterday Regent Piielps announced that the committee on Lick Observatory desired to submit some cor respondence between acting Director Schaeberle and Mr. Holden. The com mittee desired the advice of the board on the subject. On Octouer 20 Mr. Holden wrote from Washington to Mr. Schaeberle as follows: "The Government will prob bly seek to establish one o! several new magnetic sta tions on the Pacific Coast. The site must b.* forever protected from the influence of electric wires carrying a heavy current. The m:Uier if all in the air at present, but something will be done before loog." The lettt-r then suggests that the regents lease for H a year for a long term a site ol twenty acres on Mount Hamilton at the bricicyard over by the IS-mcli reflector. Professor Scbaeberle's advice to the com mittee was to i he effect that an observer under Government direction and inde pendent of university control should not be stationed nt Mount Hamilton. He sug gested that the r .gents should ask for a detail of a Governmpnt observer, to act under the direction of the Lick Observa tory management. Should ihe Govern ment not detail an observer under these conditions, it would be b-uter, in the judg ment of Proiessor Schaeberle, for the re gent* tocarry on the work. Governor Bud<) suggested that it would bo well to postpone action on this subject until a director of the Lick Observatory was chosen to succeed Prcfessor Holden. "I move," said he, "a reference of the sub ject to the committee on Lick Observa tory." The motion carried. The Gov ernor then ruoveu that the regents at the next regular meeting elect a director of the observatory. The po'nt was raised that no vacancy existed, as Mr. Holden's resignation did not take effect until Janu ary 1. The motion to elect at the next meetini; prevailed. Mr. Holden also wrote to Mr. Scliae berle that tb*> Weather Bureau at Wash ington would probably offer to print tno Meteorological Observations compiled by Mr. Perrine in 1895. The worK is un published on account of the lack of money under the control of the regents. In the business talk over the allowance of money, the fact was brought out at th? session that some inferior work had been aone in the construction of shower baths at the gymnasium at Berkeley. The fault was laid at the door of the architect. After considerable talk some one had the saeacity to inquire if the contractor had been paid fur the worK. and the regents were iniornu-d that the bill had been ordered paid. Ihe rules were amended providing that the regular sessions hereafter shall begin at 11 a. if. The morning session will bs devoted simply to reading the minutes and allowance of bills. The regents attending the session were: i. G. Phelps (presiding). Governor Budd, A. S. Hallidie. j. West Martin, E. A. ppnickp. General Houghton, Geor<:e T. Marye, President Kellogg. Arthur Rodger <, Superintendent Black. Director Chase, Ptiebe Hearst, John E. Budd and H. S. rootc. HER HOT BREATH COOLED HIS LOVE How J. M. Anderson, a Miner of Rossland, B. 0,, Went a- Wooing. Through a Matrimonial Paper He Became Engaged to Mar guerite Richmond. He Came to the City, Broke Off the Alliance and Was Thrown Into Prison. J. M. Anderson, a miner of Rossland, B. C, is 33 years of ajje, and, as be bas amassed a lortune, he is anxious to be come a benedict, rie bas a bandsome bouse in Rossland, and bis cup of happi ness will be full when lie takes a bride to share his joys and sorrows. Early last September Anderson saw an advertisement in a matrimonial paper published in this city which struck liia fancy. He wrote to the address and re reived a reply that pleased him greatly. The lady gave her name as Marguerite Richmond, and said she was a dressmaker living at HI Ellis street. Anderson sent her his photograph, and received another prettily worded letter inclosing a photo graph of the tair Marguerite. Iney continued to correspond, and finally Anderson arrived in the city on October 5. He engaged rooms at 2y Eddy sireet and hastened to call upon his inamorata. They appeared to be mutually satisfied, ana Anderson was anxious fur the wedding to come off as soon as pos sible. He told Marguerite of his mines and bis beautiful bomp, and she coyly begged for a few days' delay, as she had to make preparations for tne event. Anderson began to notice that Mar guerite's breath when he kissed her had an aroma of whisky, and when be chided her with imbibing it sho told him she had to take a little for a cold which troubled her. It was arranged that the marriage should take place after Anderson returned from a visit to friends in Santa Rosa. He returned on October 22, procured the mar ringe license and telephoned to Judge Campbell's address to ask him to perform the ceremony, but the Judge was not In the city. He called upon Marguerite and alleges that he found the whisky habit had grown upon her and she was in such a condition that ho frankly told her ha could not marry her. Marguerite pleaded witn him in vain and then Mhe went to Judgn Campbell's court and swore out a complaint charging Anderson with petty larceny. She al leged that she gave him a check on a bank for $:>0 to caah and that he kept the money. Anderson was arrested on November 2. Not having enough money to bail himself out, and beine ashamed toapDly to friends for help, he remained in the prison until yesterday afternoon when Judge Camp bell heard the case. Marguerite is a decided blonde, about ,'!O years of ace. She was in a vindictive mood and tried hard to make out a case eeain*t Anderson, declaring he was a de ceiver and she would not r^arry him although ho owned all the gold on the Klondike. The miner admitted cashing the cbeck, but swore that he gave her the money and also money of his own. Ho related all the circumstances leading wv to the break ing of the enpai/ement, and showed from papers in his possession that he was a man of prominence in II isslano. The Judge believed him and dismissed the rase. When he left 'he courtroom Marguerite followed him into the corridor, threw her arms around bil neck and begged him to forest and forgive, but Anderson gently but lirmly pushed her away and told her that Henceforth they must be strangers. So they parted. LATHERED IN HIS CHAIR Duffey, the Plumber, Fiercely Fought a Silversmith Be fore Shavine.

Burridge the Saxon went into tho b.irbor-shop on Hardie pluce, just op poses his place of business. He no soODvr entered the door than he encountered the blazing eyes of Duffey. Tne Duffey face was snow white with laiber, but the Duf ley eyes Ehon» through like an Arctic sun through a Klondike fog. Belore the dazed silver-mith could re cover from his amazement Duffey leaped out of the barber's chuir wiih the linen towels flapping around his Deck and struck a heroic attitude in the center of the floor. "Do you think you're as good a man as you were six months ago? " demanded the Duffey. "1 think I am," responded Burridge, with a modest intonation. Mr. Burriuge threw off bis coat. Mr. Duffey was already in his shirt sleeves. Burridge feinted with his right, but the next moment something heavy and hard struck him on the chin and he tumbled over a barber's chair and wiped seven bot tles of liair tonic off the counter with his head. But he was uu acain like a flash and smote the right fist of Duffey with his mustache. Feeling weary of such tactics, he seated himself without loss of time in an iron tuipidor. lv the next round he managed to get in a right-hander on Duffey's ear. The plumber foil against a shaving-case and broke several gold-plated mugs. In the meantime the barbers had run iniothe street, razors in hand and aprons a-fiying, yelling "Police!" Passers-oy, fearing that a murder was about to be committed, interfered and sep arated the combatants. Duffey was indignant and declared that he was going to have Burridge arrested for battery, but before he could cet tfae document Burridge had sworn to h com plaint in Police Court 3 and Duffey wa3 taken to the California-street police sta tion, from whicli lie was released on fur nishing Dail in the sum of $20. LATHERS FREED. Proclamation of the Governor Releaa- ing James Holme*, Convicted of Involuntary Manslaughter. Governor Budd has commuted the sen tence of James Holmes, who was in May, 1896, tried and convicted of the crime ot '"involuntary manslaughter, not a fel ony," and sentenced to undergo impris onment in the State prison for one year. The Governor advances as a reason for clemency that the jury intended to con vict Holmes of a misdemeanor only, and the District Attorney agrees with the Governor in this reasoning. The Sheriff al»o joins in the request for commutation of sentence. In view of the lact that Holmes was imprisoned in the County Jail from May 2, 1890, until September 13, 1897, with whica he should be credited, the Governor directs that he be not further imprisoned.
