L s Arfifsles" Mother Gratified for
the Hops Now Held
Out to Her.
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12.— 1n a neat
Lite cottage at 84.2 South Olive street
there re- id's Mrs. George J. Johnson.
Her hair has been silverel by the passing
years, but her mind is just now troubled
:>.ud borne down iv a weight oi woe as it
never was fore. Until Mrs. Johnson once
again fees the clasp of the strong arms of
her son, Eugene, as he gathers her in his
loving embrace she will- never rest in
The son is on the ice-bound steam
whaler Orca, and the mother is fearful
lest lie snail never return. She has pic
ture l in h r mind a possible faie for her
loved one which is terrible to contem
plate—lea U by starvation in the frozen
regions of the Arctic.
But she has one ray of hope. It has
been given by The Call. The humane
proj.o-ition to provisii n a ship to be sent
lo the relief of the 400 American seamen
whose lives are in danger in tne far north
hits given to that heart-broken mother the
only sunlight she has -een for a number
of days. She feels that there is now a
tossib lity that the life of her hoy will be
-aved. and that he will be spared to com
irt :n 1 sustain her in her old aga.
To The Call and its proprietor. Mrs.
Jocnsoti is nior-i lirofise in her expres
sion- oi gratitude f >r what she terms one
ci the ■ratide-t acts of humanity she has
ever rea 1 or heard i I. To a correspondent
<>f the paper Mrs. Johns. >n last evening
detailed he story of h r boy's departure
mr he Arctic and how he came to go.
She is a pleasant conversationalist, and as
she told of ber son the expression of her
face was li^htfd up by the fires of the
mother love. She said :
"This v.,.*- to have been Eugene's last
voyage. His father and his father's
her before him were sea captain 8. My
boy was on • 26 fears of a«e and he did
not like to follow tne sea. But he did not
tin 4 any profitable occupation on shore
so one day he came to me and said:
■' 'Mother, I have decided to make one
more trip to the Arctic. But this will be
the ist. I will be back about November
10, and then I. will be able to obtain em
ployment on shore. I have shipped be
iore the mast on the whaler Orca.'
'It was sad intelligence, but I could not
do anything to prevent bis going. My
boy was taking the great r.sk of an Arctic
voynge for my sake and so I helped to
outfit him and bade him good-by and
God peed.
'•And now I shall never see my noble
boy again. He' has gone forever. And to
think ihat he will probably die of starva
tion. Obi It is awful Do you think j
tbev can s^tve him?
"I know that everything possible will
ba done, but in the las; letier I had from
him he told me that the food the sailors
were receiving was simply awful. He
said that he wouid send me the bill of
fare, on.y he Knew that it wou.d make me
"Furthermore he told me that the pro
visions on board would last only until
November 15 but he said that lie "would
be i. ome beic re then.
"I wish you wouid tell the proprietor of
The i all that 1 snail never forget the
grand i.ob work he has done in en
deavoring to send relief to the poor sailo-s
in the north. Ted him that in the hum
ble prayers of one mother, at ceast. his
generous act will ever be remembered, for
if my boy's life is saved it will be through
his efforts and exertions. Tell him thai
lie has given me the only hope I have that
I will ever see my boy "again and that 1
hope Goa may be him for alt that he
has done."
And tnen Mrs. Johnson could restrain
herself no longer. A Hood of tears came
and for several moments the grief-strifken
mother allowed her emotion to have full
sway. Some kindly neighbors who were
with her endeavored to comfort her
but it was some time beiore she regained
her composure. Friends are doing all
they can to lighten the heavy burden Mrs.
Johnson is carrying, but the task is a
difficult on-.
San Diego Real Estate Agent
Arres.ed for Alleged
His Own Evidence In a Civil Suit
the Basis of a Criminal
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 12— R. A. Jones, a
prominent real estate man, is in hot water
for alle.ee. i perjury committed in litigation
over a recent deal, He was scorchingly
rebuked in open court to-day by Judge
Torrence, wno declared that Jones had
committed reijury. Later a warrant was
issued fur Jones' arrest on that charge,
and he was held in $1000 bonds by Jadge
Bryan for examination.
Jones was sued by Join Lon? to recover
$500 cash and two lots worth $5000. Long
bad agreed to bur a certain piece of prop
erly of Barney Kanipling, and he gave
Jones $5500 and a trust deed to the lots, to
be turned over to > mi*. ing as soon as the
latter had completed his part of the bar
{rain. Now Long alleges that Jones with
held $500 ol the money and would not
deed the property over to Kampiing unless
the latter paid bim $500. It was the old
whipsaw game of demanding concessions
from both buyer and seller.
Jones lest lie i before Judge Torrenci
that he was not an a.ent lor Kampiing,
and that he was simply a go-between.
But a contract was produced wherein
Jones was made sole a ent tor Kaniplini;
and was to receive $500 ior his services.
This silenced Jones, and his attorneys
hen attempted to quote authorities per-
ting an agent to demand commissions
from both buyer and seller. Judge Tor
rence swept this aside and vigorously de
nounced Jones.
"I don't believe a word of your testi
mony," ho_ said. "You have perjured
yourself. Your course has been such as
to call for the punishment of the law. I
direct the clerk to take possession of the
Contract in question, which, wiih the rec
ord of Jones 1 testimony in this case, will
serve as the bass of a criminal action
against Jones lor perjury."
Jones was arrested an hour or two later.
Complaint Made to the Pope of the
Sympathy of the Vatican With the
Franco- Russian Alliance.
LONDON, Nov. 12.— Tbe Rome cor
respondent of the Daily Chronicle says:
Baron yon Bulow, the new y appointed
German Secretary of State of Foreign
Affairs, in an interview with the Pope,
has warmly complained against the sym
pathy of the Vatican with the Franco-
Russian alliance and its hostility to the
Triple Alliance. He declared in the name
of Emperor William tbat if the Vatican
persisted in such -a policy the German
Government would retaliate on the
Roman Catholics.
Will Oppose the Stanford
Varsity in a Final
Match To-Day.
Giants Who Will Put the Col
legians Through a Criti
cal Test,
Prospects Are That Stanford Will
Win by a Larger Score Than
Last Tear.
This afternoon nt Recreation Rark,
corner of Eighth and Harrison streets,
the Stanford Varsity and a greatly
strengthened Reliance team will meet for
their final struggle on the gr diron.
Following will be the line-up, which
shows Reliance men of remarkable weight
opposed to the veteran but lighter Stan
ford line:

To quote the words of Fete Smith, the
big Reliance guard, who in 1892 played
tackle for Caliiornia. "If Stanford can go
through that Reliance line, it can rip the
Berkeley line all to pieces."
It should be a battle royal. Reliance
has bent every effort to win this game,
which will likely be its last this season, as
the liutte match has not yet been ar
ranged and seems to be only a vague pos
The changes in the Reliance team are:
Hobbs. the heaviest football-player on the
coast, moved from guard to center because
Wells is injured and Burnett is unable to
practice regularly; Sheen y from tackle to
guard, bis original position; big Bert
Oliver introduced at lelt tackle, where
Erskine and liguter men have played;
I Erskine over to right tackle, with the
duties of which position lie is more fa
miliar; and Seawright, last season's Stan
lord Varsity half, introduced at left end
to share that position with Linyon. Then
with Sherman, the Berkeley veteran and
ex- Varsity captain at the other end ; Code,
Stanford Varsity quarter for four years,
at quarter: Morse an d Carter as half
bacKs and Wyckoff at full, an unusualiy
formidable team is arrayed against the i
collegians. And these men have been I
nightly practicing as a team for a week.
Reliance partisans are off ring to bet |
that this time their team will defeat Stan- j
ford, though the preceding games have j
resulted in scores of 6 to 4, 8 to 6 and 12 to j
tl, with Stanford each time on the big end —
Out never against so powerful a Reliance
A great delegation of Stanford students
is expected to come up for this game and
try the effect of some of the new yells to
be used on Thanks-giving day.
On the grounds at the corner of Six
te nth and Folsom streets, at 2:30 o'clock
this afternoon, the Alameda Higu School
team will play the Horace Maun Gram
mar School eleven. And on the same
grounds to-morrow afternoon there will
be a match game between tbe Rincon
team and the Menlo lark eleven. The
Rincon team is made np largely of mem
bers of Company 11, League of the Cross
Cadets. It expects soon to play a team
from Company M and another from Com
pany A, Lea-sue of the Cross.
It is not tne policy of this department
to lend itself to thefoolish but transparent
deceptions habitually attempted by cer
tain portions of each university team in
their attempts to belittle the chances o!
success for thefr favorites on Thanksgiv
ing. Men that are boastful deserve to be
beaten. But a healthy confidence is a
prime requisite to a good performance.
Exaggerated stories of disaster to players
are only a part of a system of preliminary
deception that the English collegian, the
best type of the maniy athlete, does not
resort to.
The training of the men of Cambridge
and Oxford for all their intercollegiate
contests is done in the open, and when
the teams meet it is the best concerted
skill and ability that must win. The true
sportsman feels no humiliation if he is
the loser in a game he enters for the love
of the sport and the enjoyment of the con
test. When collegians on this coast, re
gardless of Eastern practices, come to look
at their contests in this light there ill ba
a healthier, a better and a more ennobling
atmosphere about what should be the
best exemplification of amateurism.
That Stanford's chances are excellent
for the Thanksgiving game it is ridiculous
to deny. In the opinion of this writer,
who has witnessed practically all the
gridiron contests hereabouts during th
last seven seasons, Stanford should win
by a larcer score than the 20 to 0 of last
year. But no contest is settled until it is
ended. ln football, particularly on a
slippery be.d, there are innumerable
chances for sudden reverses, for an indi
vidual player, perhaps, to grasp an unex
pected opportunity and turn the tide of
Whatever be tbe comparative ability of
the two varsity teams now a fierce and
hard-lought contest can be confidently
relied upon, and no portion of the Uni
versity of California will miss the
struggle. There have been too many sure
things iost in the pa-t. The fir>t Stan
ford-California game in 1892 was a dead
sure thing f>r California. And Stanlord
men thought before the last intercolle
giate ft Id day that they could not lose
the meet, but they did.
With the big game less than two weeks
off the Berkeley team finds itself in a con
dition almost c aotic. Toe line-ups for
Thanksgiving day cannot be guessed any
. more closely now than it could a month
I ago. There is scarcely a position on the
team which it can be said, barnug acci
dents, a particular player rill till. The
men have been shifted from one position
to another in such bew lderingiy rapid
succession that it is hard to tell for what
position a man is a candidate.
TakeQreisberg, lor example. He started
in at the beginning ol the season playing
a brilliant game at center, having played
guard last y ar. Several weeks later found
him playing halfback. Next he was tried
at tackle, nnd now once more he is behind
the line. Simpson has been rlave.l va
riously at tackle, end and halfback, Lud
low at guard, tackle, end and haliback,
T.I in an at tackle anu fullback. Hopper at
end and halfback, Cornish at tackle, full
back, guard and center, and so on with
other candidates.
The pursual of such a policy of experi
menting so late in the season is a decided
innovation. In former year- the team has
been nicked, with the exception of one or
two positions, generally a month before
the final contest.
Judging from the nightly varying var
sity line-ups the following men are most
likely to compose California's '97 team :
Center, McDermott; guards, Barnes
and Mayer; tackles, Simpson, Pringle or
Castelhun; ends, Whipple, Hopper, Col
lier or Craig; quarter. Bender ; halfbacks,
Captain Hall and Greisberg; fullback,
Kaar berg.
The fact that the second eleven has so
frequently defeated or even scored against
the varsity thus late in the training season
indicates, possibly, rather faulty selection
of varsity men.
And all this shows that California is
preparing many men for the different
positions, a policy that would indicate a
determination to play a fast and re. ties?
game against Stanford, sacrificing men
and substituting fresh ones to rush for
Tne Men Making Good Progress In

DEL MONTE, Nov. 12.— Tbe Berkeley

day and is training for the great came

ing good progress since its arrival.
The programme as carried out to-day

Hundreds of Yale Men Arrive in
Boston for To-Day's
BOSTON, Nov. 12.— The Yale football
team reached Boston this evening. The
party numbered fifty-six. Of thi3 num
ber forly-:our were players and sub
stitutes. The following coachois accom
panied the team: Walter Camp, Frank
Butterworth (the head coach), Frank
j Hinkey, Louis Hinkey and G. Fisher San
The football train was a long one, an J
was heavily loaded with Yale students.
After dinner the piayers lounged about
the corridors of the Vendome, chatted and
whiled away the time until shortly atterO
o'clock, when they went to tbeir rooms.
By 10 o'clock the whole tquad had retired
for the last night's rest before the great
contest which will be played to-mo.row
with Harvard.
As regards Yale's chances for victory,
there is little to be said. Captain Rodgers
and his coachers refuse to talk for publi
cation on that score. In sp.te of the fact
that the Yale men are not loquacious,
however, it is not difficult to see that the
New Haven collegians are not worrying.
Quietly, considerable -tting was done.
Yale's sports had plenty of money with
them and they looked lor and found con
siderable at even figures. Captain Rod
gers admitted officially that Corwin would
take the place of Dudley, who was called
borne by the death of his mother.
Great Interest Taken in the Yale-Har
vard Gridiron Rattle.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass, Nov. 12 —A heavy
rain last night turned fcoldiers held into a
lake, and the football learn went through
signal practice indoors. _ At 3:30 this after
noon th- Harvaid eleven and substitutes
trotted out on the slushy ground, but the
Drac ice was limited to catching and
returning the ball on the kickoff. The
line-up to-morrow will probably be as fol
lows: Cabot, left end; Swain, left tackle;
Bovee, left guard; Doucette, center;
Haskell, right guard; Donald, right
tackle; Mouiton, right end; Garrison,
quarter back; Dibble, lett halfback;
Warren, right halfback; llatighton, full
back. All of the men seemed full of gin
ger nnd in coo'i condition.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12.— The rush of
lootball enthusiasts from this city to Bos
ton to see the Ya.'e-Harvard game whs un
precedented. Ail trains from the G and
Central depot for that city were crowded
to their utmost capacity. All berths in
the 11 and 12 o'clock trains to-night were
taken, and as no more sle»t)ing-cars could
be obtained the oveifl had to be satis
fied with chair cars. Among Siock Ex
chance br-.k^rs some money was paced
on the Yale-Princeton match on Novem
ber 20 at 100 to 50 against Yale. The
odds on the Harvard-Yale match to-mor
row remain at 100 to 80 against Yale.
Superintendent of the Preston
School Wants an In
Says the Men Who Accuse Him
Are All Attaches Whom He
Had Discharged.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
STOCKTON, Nov. 12 —Dr. E. S. O'Brien,
Superintendent of the lone Reform School,
who was in this city to-day, denied the
charges aealnst him and says he wants a
searching investigation.
"Captain HawK, one of the men who
make the allegations concerning cruelty
at the school, is a man whom I discharged
for incompetency." Dr. O'Brien said.
"Secretary Bernard, another, was also dis
charged for the same cause. Dr. Tyrrel,
one of the trustees, wanted Bernard re
tained, and is making his fight because he
could not save him.
"Ketchum was also discharged by me
for incompetency and for neglect of duty.
Captain Hawk fell asleep on the grounds
and let five boys escape. Dr, Tyrrel tele
phoned to me to retain Captain Hawk un
til the board met, saying he had proof
that it wa* a job put up by an assistant to
allow the boys to escape. I relalnel him,
but the hoys of Company A declared they
would run away; they could not stand his
cruelty and brutality. He knocked two
boys down in the basement, one a colored
boy named Wilson. All this has ema
nated f-om discharged employes, parties
whom £ had occasion to discharge for
neglect of duty, frequenting saloons,
drunkenness, etc. ; in short, for conduct
unbecoming oflicers and gentlemen con
nected with such an institution."
Official Organ of the People's Party
of Idaho Announces a Change
of Front.
DENVER, Nov. 12.— A special to the
Republican from Boise, Idaho, says: A
commotion has been caused in political
circles by the action of the Boise Sentinel,
the official organ of the People's party
of the State, which announces in its issue
to-day that henceforth it will fly the ban
ner of fiat money instead of free silver at
16 to 1, the attainment of the latter being
considered too remote to have the desired
effect in muzzling the monopolies.
It also declared for tne m ddle-of-the
road policy, denouncing the Democrats as
instigators of a scheme to swallow* np tbe
Populist party. This action, it is be
ii»ved, will sstr-jngo the Democratic
wing of tie fusion party, which
will likely make an effort to fuse with the
Silver Republicans which, the Sentinel
denounces, are d;sloval to the cause they
espoused, and are flocking back to the
ranks of the go'dbugs' parly.
Senator Heitfeld has secured a con
troling interest in the Sentinel, and the
first 1 sue under the new regime came
out to-day, bearing the name of E. C. Ful
ler, Senator Heitfeld's private secretary,
as manager.

Magnates of the National Baseball
League Abolish the Temple
Cup Series.
PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 12.— The mag
nates of the National Baseball L?ague, at
their meeting to-day, voted unanimously
to abolish the Temple Cup series of post
season games. The resolution prohibits
the playing of exhibition games at any
time between National L?ague clubs.
Mr. Freedman of New York offered the
only oppo ition to the abolishment of the
Tempi- Cup series, explaining that he
felt his team would finish close to the top
next season, and that he wanted the Tem
ple Cup series to be continued. He votpd
with the others, however, for the resolu
tion, and stated afterward that he wouid
set aside a fund of $5000 to be divided
among Ins men should they finish at the
top in 1898.
A committee was appointed to confer
with Mr. Temple of Pittsburg, the donor
of the cup, to ascertain his desires as to
the disposition of the trophy.
The modifications submitted by the
minor leagues to the rules relating to the
draft of players were adopted. Tbe
amended rule provi ies that no player in
the Eastern, Western or Atlantic leagues
shall be drafted by the major league until
be shall have been two years with the
minor league club, and that no more than
two players can be drafted from any club
of these leagues. §l»8i
A donation of $75 was made to John
Cartuy velles, the Cincinnati fireman who
was injured at a can** last season by a
boer glass thrown by Umpire Tim Hurst.
Another donation of $351 wat made to
cover the deficit in the fund for tue erec

Are Reached.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.— During to
day's sealing conference a series of propo
sitions was presented by the American
representatives covering the number and
habits of seals and extent to which the
seal herd had been reduced during the
live years in which the P ris tribunal had
been in operation. In turn the British-
Canadian representatives presented coun
ter propositions covering their view of the
same subject. The propositions differed
considerably, but were not so wide apart
as to lead to the belief tbat they could
not he reconciled.
It is expected that when the session is
resumed to-morrow the experts will be
able to reach a common understanding.
The propositions do not embody any
diplomatic features, hut are solely scien
tific, as to the number, habits and des
truction, of the seals. After the experts
have reconciled their propositions the
diplomats will begin to consider the large
subject of providing an adequate remedy
against sea! destruction.

NEW YORK, Nov. —John C. Bullitt
Jr., a prominent lawyer of Duiuth, Minn.,
and formerly resident counsel for the
Northern Pacific Railroad Company at
St. Paul, committed suicide in a room at
the Central Railroad Hotel, on Liberty
street, taking hydro-chloric acid, cyanide
of potassium and nitric acid.
The suicide, who was 36 years of ace
and who comes from a well-known Ken
tucky family, bad been in New York
about two months, having come here to
promote several Mexican mining schemes
in which he was interested. Of late bis
friends had feared that his mind was de
ranged. The suicide left a note ad
dressed to bis brother, Joshua F. Bullitt
of Bigstone Gap. Va., in which, after re
questing bis brother to care for bis wife
und little girl in Duiuth, be says:
You will, I know, be interested in knowing
how a person feels who is about to step into
the unknown world. Hence I will tell you
what my feelings are. I wonder, I doubt, I
hope, but over all the wonder and the
doubt and the hope a feeling of in
tense curiosity prevails. What is the
future? I believe I know, but it is
only a belief. I am very curious
to verify it. The feeling of fear is absent. I
am going from here to the Eden Musee to play
chess with the automaton. This fact illus
trates my mental condl ion, perhaps, better
than a volume of my writings wou.d. Death
seems to me to be merely an event of no more
importance say, than breakfast. 1 love life
and hate to leave it, but the summons lias been
served and I must answer. And now, good-by

CRESCENT CITY, Cai,., Nov. 12.— A

Thomas Van Pelt and Cooiidge, father
ofthe man just killed, became associated
with the inflating enterprise — which, by
the way, was a dismal failure — and the
two men and their respective henchmen
have ever since been blaming each other
for the lack of success and complaining of
encroachment by the adverse party upon
their rights. After about a month had
passed two shooting affrays were indulged
in, the latter of which resulted in the i
wounding of E. C. Hughes, son-in-law of j
Van Pelt. The shooting wasacknowledged
by the Cooiidge party.
The Curry Couuty authorities have
long previously given up the hope of i
maintaining peace in that section, but a I

arbitration of the claims of the contend

house of John Cooleys, two miles ud the
river from Chetco. While on their return
at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and
when near the summit of a bill, they
were fired upon.
Three rifle-shots were discharged in |
quick succession ami Cooiidge fell, shot
through the heart. A sudden turning of
the team overturned he wagon-soat and
threw Smith upon the ground. He had
been shot through the right side, and
knowing that his only hope of safety was
in getting distance between himself and
the enemy he hobbled away as best he j
could and at length again rescued the
house of Coolys. With Coolyshe returned j

wagon and team unharmed and the body j

The team was driven to Chetco, where a
brother of Cooiidge wa- waiting, having
but an hour previously arrived from Sil

to get Ai Cooiidge to abandon his location
and get away from the trouble and danger
that thieatened him. His brother came j
only to find ♦.hat he was too late and that
his fears had been too welt founded.
The remains of Cooiidge were embalmed

S Iverton, where his parents and other

to prevent the outrages of such frequent

and power the vessels compared lavorably
with those of the large battleship < abroad.
He considered a trial speed of sixteen
