cannot be expected to unlimber to any
great extent on tho class of horses per

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.
Hennessy was set down for the balance
of the meeting by Starter Caldwell for pet
ting left at the post with Bliss Rucker.

Hearinc of the Contest to Test
the Holographic Docu
Judge Ooffey and a Jury Listening
to the Testimony of Mrs. M. M.
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.
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.

With the political life end business

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

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

the ceremonies, were conducted by H. J.

A New Director to Be Chosen
at the Next Meeting
of Regents.
The Government May Establish
a Magnetic Station on the
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.

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
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
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
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.

The collector was a rustler and treated the
Duffey with bru-quenes3 when he de

Jude« Frank Ives of District Court of

I have u-e'd Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
with seeming great benefit, with few ex-
ceptions, I have not been so free from in-

Rev. G. D. Brown, Mondovi, Wis. : Th 9
effect of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is
simply marvelous; a quite nearty dinner
of broiled beefsteak causes no distress
since 1 began their use.
Over tiOO'J people in the State of Michi-

troubles by Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. .

in Duffey's collar that day after the col
lector left, and Duffey repaired to the
stiver paiace oi the Saxon, which is at 3
Hardie place.
"What in Toriarua do you mean by
sendinu a miserable collector to annoy
me?" demanded Duffey. *lf he comes
again I'll brain him with a yaid of lead
" Tis not the fault of the collector," ex
plained the Saxon Burridee gently. "He
but performs a duty entrusted to him by
ourselves. Perctiaiice thy Celtic blood
boileth because we have dispatched our
va3sal 10 tap thy exchequer. 'Tis wtll.
An thy blooJ boileth, let Her boil."
Tuehthehot blood of Duffey the Celt
boiled over again and he uttered many
hard sayings, so mat the silversmith
challenged him to open combat, but the
Duffey declined tha challenge oecauso of
the great multitude of passers-by, and he
thereupon went nis way in peace, but
breathing steam and vengeance.
That was six months ago. Six weeks
ago the silversmith grew fatigued witu
waiting and attached the Duffey.
Yegterday they met for the first time in
months. 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
"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
Feeling weary of such tactics, he seated
himself without loss of time in an iron
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.
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.

James Carey.: I jiave had a heavy feeling in my head,

was examined and informed that my

alarmed about the condition.
Doctor.! The heaviness' is more apt to be due to
indigestion than to heart or lung dis-
ease. A feeling of heaviness in the
chest region is not a symptom of heart
or lung affections. Take a Ripans
