DEATH OF COLONEL J. J. AYERS Yields to Illness at His Home Near Los Angeles. SUCCUMBS TO LUNG TROUBLE. Intense Suffering Marks the Clcsing Hours of an Active Life WAS A PIONEER EDITOR OF THE WEST. Started the Calaveras Chronic c, Now the Oldest Newspaper In tli 9 State. Special Dispatch to Thk Call. LOS ANGELES, Nov. Colonel J. J. Ayers, the veteran and distingui-hed journalist, died at his home near this city io-day. For iwo years he has been affected with lung trouble, and during the past few months he had failed rapidly. For twenty-four hours before the end came his sufferings were intense. Colonel Avers was 67 years of ape, and nearly fifty years of his life were passed in California, He was a scholar, a poet, an orator and a linguist, but it was as a newspaper man that he gained fame. In ISSI lie established in Sen Franciico a paper called the Public Balance, and a year later he started the Calaveras Chronica a, which still survives, the oldest paper in i he Str.te. Colonel A c - wa" one of the founders of the S ni Francisco Call, and with his part ners published it successiully for twelve yeirs, wnen he went to Honolulu. In 1872 j he came to Los Angeles and established ; the Evening Express, and conducted that j paper until 1882 when he was appointed [ Public Printer by Governor Stonemnn. At the expiration of his term in 1886 ne re turned to this citj' an I bought an interest in the Herald. Since he -oil the latter paper in 1894 ct- has b j en living a reared I life at his ountry p. ace cf Azusa, near ti.is city. For he ia-t three years the colonel ha devoted bimse'f to writing an autobio graphical Lisiory of California, and it is I to be hoped that ti.e vers was sufficiently J advanced to permit of its publication. Colon* Ayers was also active in jo. ities and had often stumped the S ate fcr the ' party of nis noii-icii faith the Democ racy. In ISSO he was **. candidate tor Con gress on ihe Work logmen's ticket, and, although defeated, he made a phenome nal ran. He was a delegate from ihis couaty to th convention which framed the new constitution in 1878, and his effic ent work on that occasion is well re men,bared. Colonel Ay- rs leaves a widow, who v.as Miss Shankl.n of Oak and, two nephews and a he s of friends to mourn his loj-s. It is doub. fal if he had an enemy in the world. He was always striving to do pood and many a young man has cause to bless the day he met Colonel Ayers. There is widespread and deep grief at his death, and his funeral will be one of the largest ever seen here. rou mi iso oi -i nt: CALL." Colonel Aytrs' Account ofthe lucres* Sexc.jinp*r Venture. In ;*n article written for and published in The Call in February of last year Colonel A \\.rs tola of his newspaper ca reer m California an 1 of the Hounding of 'Ihe Cam., Thetirticle is ere reproduced: 1 believe 1 can safel * say I started th» oldest newspaper in this State, li was in 1851 that Harry Decorcey, Henry Hamilton and myseit bought a pr.niing ouirii in Ban Fraucisco and toot ourselves to Mokelumne Hill, wnere we soon had tbe Calaveras Chronicle appearing weekly. The camp was a iarge one and very lively at that time. I was up there aoout a week ago. It is only a ghost of the camp it was in those days. 1 believe thai piper is the only one wiiich has been published continu ously ever since under the same name. In '53 I went Eist on a visit, and wlieu I re turned, in company with others, we '.eased the theater ther<, aud I on ame a theatrical manager I re turned to San Francisco in '55, and be gan to worn on the Herald, which was a large commercial paper up to the day the "Vig. lance Commit cc" was torxned. Tnat com mittee was formed ol -all me decent element of the city, and is obj-.ct was to clear thecity of some iti herd characters. The next day the Herald came out in favor ot law and or der, and strong. opnosed the action of the commute-. Bi night lis. advertisers h-id a., withdrawn th-ir rapport and the sub scribers bad a 1 oi.lor'd the paper stopped. A small sheet, known as the-Town Talk, came out in favor ol the "Vgiianis," and it went ahead like rocket Advertisers rushed to it aid the -subscriptions rolled lv. This left v cant the field for a small and ciieap paper. I saw the opportunity and wus notsiow in grasping li. There were five of us, practical printers and newspaper fellows, "so we pooled our. issues and formed a c-opera tive company to get out a daily At I2s<j cents per week. We named it the Mousing Call, which name it retail ed ait its present pro prietor, 1 believe, changed the name to the San Francisco Call. 1 was chosen editor and was' to assi-i in setting type when not other wise em p oyed. David W. Higgins, now a wealthy but retired publisher at Victoria, B. C ,'wns my assistant in both capacities. That was our editorial and reportonal iorce. George Eustace Barnes was our business manager. He was assisted by Peter B. Tomer, no-v passed away. Char.es Johnson was the chief c impost tor. He, too, has gone tite way we will all have to go. In those day- a paper never hid but two men on the editorial ami reportorir.l staff com bined, and they ranked as editor and assistant. We bad success from the start, and in a lew weeks had to enlarge our paper. When we started it was a little smaller than the tront page of The (ail to-day. Tho original plan on which the paper wa laid out was to con dense and to tell everything in the most con cise manner possible. There were no rail roads or telegraphs in those days, but we did not lack lor sen-aim: sby any means, lhere was always some excitement to keep up the interests of readers, as there is to-day. We often had duels to report, politics were" lively and then raining news was always a source of fired interest. Every two weeks the steamers arrived, and WW Did receive a let Of oid Eastern papers witn the doings ot the peopie in the States We wouid go through mem and get the most interesting news out for the next day. Then later, 88 we had more time, we would go over them again and gel out more that was of in terest. Our policy was to Issue a c can family newspaper. Ii was well conducted and a thor oughly representative, square and honest papers Naturally advertising came in to us, and we built up, enlarging as became neces sary, until at the end of ten years it was the best paying paper on the const. At tnar time we had « su scription of 17,000 and a popula tion of 70,000. The manner of how the paper was named has been told, but it may be new to many of its readers to-day. We had talked tbe matter over, and decided that we didn't want any of JAMES J. AVERS. the old names; we wanted to have something entirely new. One Sunday morning we were All standing on Kearny* street, wnen a bill poster came along and put up the announce ment mat Julia Dean Hayne would appear at Parthenia in "I goniar," andtheperiormance would close with the roaring "farce "The 1 Morning Call." "There we sre, boys," I ex j claimed. "We will name our paper Thk ' MoKNtNci Call." That is how one paper se | cured its name.

RANDSBURG, Nov. 12.- Both crews of the Randsburg and Kramer Railroad are hearing Randsburg. The graders are within seven miles of this camp, and the steel crew is just midway and has four teen miles of track laid. The graders are camped across the line in San Bernar dino County— just far enough frora the line of the Rand mining district. . The reason for locating the camp there is that it may not conflict with the unwritten law of the district — "no Chinese wanted." In an interview with Contractor Marsh this afternoon he expressed willingness to give bonds 'or the two Chinese cooks during their stay in the district; and fur thermore, he would pledge himself not to Pay them any money while in the district. As soon as the camp was struck he would take them to Kramer and pay them thrrs. As yet the Miners' Union has not taken any action. THE SAN .FBANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 33, 1897.

That Is the Latest Proposition of the Naval Personnel Board. NEW YORK, Nov. 12.— A special to the Herald from Washington says three corps of the navy besides the engineer co ps will be abolishe . if the plan now in contemplation by the personnel board is adopted by the Navy Department and Congress. The Herald has slated that by a practically unanimous vote the board has agreed to the amalgamation of the line and engineer corps. Since the boar .i took its recess it has developed that the civil engineer corps, the pay «orps and the marine corps have been directed to. make arguments before the board in opposition to the proposition to abolish them. With reference the marine corps, three propositions are being considered. The first contemplates their transfer to the army, their places in the navy to be filled by blue jackets; the second, their removal from shipboard and retention only .at navy-yards, and the third, that marine officers on board ship perform the duties of line officers, while still retaining their identity as marines. WON SYMPATHY AND COIN. Hard-Luck Story of a- Stranger Touches the Hearts of Monterey ans. MONTEREY, Nov. 12.— A clever game has just been perpetrated in this town, and there are several very irate people in consequence. A middle-aped, unsus p -appearing man appeared in Mon terey the beginning of tue week and pro ceeded to "laae in the town." He repre sented himself as a man in hard luck who had come to Monterey to visit his brother, who was an employe in the Dei Monte stables, and from whom he expected as sistance in obtaining work, but upon ar riving, said he, he found his brother had left Del Monte. He wished to follow him, but, being out of money, could not do so. He then worked upon the sympathy of one Monterey, man and succeeded in sell , ing "for a mere song" a very tine piece of cloth, just enough for a coat and vest, which he had brought for a present for his brother, and now was obliged to exchange for cash to live upon. The cloth looked all right, but when taken to a tailor was found too short for the purpose intende 1. i The man went to several persons with bis tale and a "lenuih of cloth," and if he found an obdurate customer be proceeded to show how easily he could raffle it off. Some one suspected the scheme -and- in vest gated it, finding about eighteen boFs of cloth sold by the man, and several raf fles in progress. The stranger has disappeared and is supposed to have left town yesterday, pre sumably to try the same game elsewhere^ SOVEREIGN SUCCEEDED BY HICKS Sudden Change of the Master Workman by Knights of Labor. OTHER OFFICERS ARE RETIRED. Action Taken by the General Assembly a Surprise to Outsiders. BUT IT IS ALL DONE BY PREARRANGEMENT. An Interesting Annual Address Made by the Retiring Head of the Order. Special Dispatch to The Call. Louisville; Nov. 12.— James R. Sov ereign, who has been general master workman of the Knights of Labor ior the past four year- or more, was this after noon relieved of his office by the General A-sembly, which as been in session in this city since Monday last. Under ordi nary conditions Mr. Sovereign's term of office wouid not expire until the next meeting. This, however, it is said, makes no difference with the order, whose gen eral officers during a meeting are always in the hands of the assembly and can be chosen and deposed at the will of the ma jority. Along with Mr. Sovereign there were three other officers retired because of this special meeting, viz. : T. B. McGuire, gen erul worthy foreman. 01 Amsterdam, N. Y. ; Daniel Brown of Montana and H. B. Martin of Minneapolis of the executive commit Henr/ A. Hick 3of District . 253, New- York City, was chosen to fill Mr. Sover e gn's place, and I. D. Chamberlain of Pueblo, Colo., was selected as general worthy foreman. San field Ftlznatrick of Montreal and Henry BostocK of As sembly 300, glass- workers, were chosen as the two members of tneex cutive hoard, the third member being Andrew Be t. This decisive change in the corp-i of ' ffi ers of the Knights of Labor Wil cause c •iipi.icr-.ble astonishment in labor c. riles throughout the Country. Save io those who wire "on the inside," so to speak, lor he past three months, there was absolute ly nothing of this Known. It is said, though, that a though the change was sudden and totally un looked :or, it was done with the a nicable consent of all. At headquarters it is hinted that it haa been rearrang -d before the delegates fathered in this city lor the General As -1 seme On good authority it is learned that it was by Mr. Sovereign's most hearty ap proval that he steps down and out. . It is likewise wi.h the appreciation and, in fact, love of his brethren of the order that his is done. The same hold.-> good with the other i tH -ers who were relieved. M*. Sovereign staled to-night that he wished retirement. He wanted rem from the .an r which the office ailed upon him. Henry A. Hicks, the general master workman elect, was seen alter the meet ing. ■He said that he did not intend to outline the future policy of the order un der his administration for several days yet. He express"d the highest admira tion lor his predecessor, saying that he thought him one of the area est expo nents of the age of the prime idea repre sented by the Knight- of Labor.. 1. D. Cnamber-ain, the worthy foreman elect, is a newspaper man. All the business transacted at to-day's meeting went , through in the most amicable manner possible. There was not the slightest hitch, and perfect biotherbood prevailed. In the morning session the remnant of the routine busi ness whicn had been left over was dis posed of. The afternoon session was prin ci ally taken up with the delivery ot Mr. Sovereign's annual address, which was listened to by the ue egaies with the greatest attention, and greeted with ap plause. VS36B£-H Mr. Sovereign prefaced his address with the statement that the opening of this regular session of the General As sembly presents to the world the "same undismayed member-hip tbrou«n whose fortitude and courage the spirit of progress combats greeu and avarice, and defi s the cam and h. >crisy ot the age." The order, he said, was to-riay stronger in mem - ship, stronger in character and stronger in th- hearts of the people than it was a year ago. *,'•-'-■ He recommended that this session con fine its deliberations large y to the work of organization. The work of , wholesale reform in the labor field, he contended, is retarded througn the coercion and corrup tion of the poor by the holders ot the idle capital, who dominate the press and de bauch the politics of the couniry, while' the courts apply the arrogant lash of des potism In the form of injunctions against the freedom of speech and peaceable as tern Plage of the poor. 'The St Louis conference," he said, "was a vi ite! labor prote t against the most flagrant outrages ever committed against civil liberty in this country. It was the vox pupuli of . an outraged nation thundering against the pomp and arro gance of returning dcspoliim, and since that time free speech b*is not been sup pressed by court Injunctions." Mr. Sovereign's reierence to the Hazel ton affair was brevity itself, he. simply saying that it was a "cold-blooded murder of inoffensive Hungarian miners by the Sheriff of Hiizeltori," whom he character ized as an agent of employing corpora tions. After the annual address the change in officers took place. Tho old officers were relieved ana t c new ones elected and in stalled. Mr. Sovereign's name was the tirst one mentioned in nomination, but he immediately arose and said he would not accept. No one opposed Mr. H.cks. The other officers were also chosen with as much ease. The assembly was th* de clared formally organized. The regular order of business will be taken up to morrow. ' . l'aciflc Coast J'*n*ioii*.

TnE LADIES WOn WEAR TIIEM It's All a Mistake, at Least That Is What the Baldwin Manager Says. TflE USHERS COULD.Vr TALK ITALIAN The Trouble at the Opera Was All Because It Was a Latin Audienoe. "Say, that young fellow got off all wrong about those hats. What's got into him, anyway? W y, don't , you know there are no high hats worn in either the California or the Baldwin? That young fellow aoesn't know what he's talking about." Morgenstern of the Baldwin and Cali fornia was not a bit angry. .He was just hurt to think that anybody should be so unjust as to insinuate that the law was violated in the slightest degree. And then, too, that story about Rot tanzi. Why, llottanzi stood by Morgen stern's side all the time he was at the opera and was well pleased with the way the house looked. "The ordinance? . Why. of course, the ordinance is all right. It's a very good ordinance and . ought to be enforced in every theater just as it is in the Baiuwin Such at ing as a big hat is never known in the Baldwin. O. course not. Why the ladi- s themselves won't wear them. "What's. that? Do we ever ask them to take them off? Why, we have sent dozens oi them out to the box-office .or their money or lor tickets for some other night when the lady could wear a low hat. '0: course baseball bats are not used to make the hats come off. Just let any body ate a complaint i.td we will send tne u-i.er ritbt down with a card o the lady, and if she iices not comply with the aw she must e»ve "Now .I. ss things ladies wear on their beans omi-iimes — what do you call then? Not v agree te-*. Wha:'» thai? Cigarettes? No,, thai isn't it. What? A gr-ttes? Yes, that's ii. Now hey don't bother anybody. ."Do the ushers eve: — well, I lik*? that. 0. Course tiiey do. Just let one o! tue ca»ii?9 wear a ..at ike matin mat pi':turo and she win be asked very quick y to re move ;t." Ii was one of those impossible creations worn by the impossible soubrette in "In Ci .y New York as pictured on the bill boards. But Moi gen-stern wa- seriou-* about it. His fee in were hurt. Had no his theaters been maligned? "Abi ut those eight-, hits seen Monday night at the upera in Caliiornia Well, you know, thai wa- an Italian opera and ■he ladies wee of Latin extraction and the ushers couid not make them under stand what was warned. If Dr. Roitanzi hau been ther be couid have explained to the ladies and there would have been no trouble." So there you are again. Do the high bats iibsiriic the view in the theaters or not? There is the authority of Morg n slern on tie side of the negative, and then there is tne evidence of dozens of theaier-goers on the side of the affirma tive. But Morgenstern ought to know, for isn't he at the theater every night, and isn't it his business to see that the law is not violated? Then there also comes the queation as to what kind of a hat would obstruct the View. The old style Gainsboroughs are no longer worn, but those creations which are composed of a mass of nodding plumes make a sort of shifting panorama of the stage and a gibbering idiot of the man who is compelled to dodge the feathers in vain efforts to see the actors. Talk about' the shifting lights of a kinetoscope, why they are a rest for the eyes alter bal* an hour's dodging of wav ing plumes and nodding head. Of course the ladies who wear them have no other place to show them off and no other kind of nat to wear to the theater, and always forget to fix their hair jus; right to show to advantage with the hat off, so what is a pair o eyes or a brain or so when a iady ; s convenience and pleasure are at stake. Anyhow they don't wear them, for Morgenstern says so, and Morgenstern ought to know. Bennett does to Prison. OAKLAND, Nov. 12 —C. 11.

The Committee Says There Will Be No Display This Year. The Painters Are of the Cpinion That the Affiir Will Come Off.. The artist members of the Bohemian Club are having troubles of their own. Some three weeks ago the directors an nounced that ihere would be an exhibi tion under the auspices oi the club at their building, Also as an inducement they offered $250 for the best picture. Out of the thirty-nine artists belonging to the club only ten responded, and this made the artcommiltee angry. Since the painters were so unapprecia tive, they decided to call the matter off, i so W. G. Stafford, chairman of ths coy£ " mittec, sent out c.rculars to that effect. The ten artists or more, who had taken an interest in the matter, became ingry, for they had been going to considerable trouble to get matters arranged, and nearly all of them bad the pictures about complete. Now the artists intend to put the art committee aside and have the exhibit in the clubrooms despite tne anger of the directors. Among those who had prepared pictures for tne exhibition were Joullin, Strong, Keith, Latimer and Stanton. W. G. Stafford, speaking about the trouble with the artists, said: "1 cannot give any information regarding the ex hibition, and ail 1 can say i* that the thing, has fallen through. The artists were unresponsive. We did all in our power to make ih-' aff -ir a success." ooooooooooooooooouooo TRICKS OF THE PEDDLER'S TRADE. As illustrated in the streets of San Francisco.
