CLAWSON RODE
IN HARD LUCK
Sat Astride Five Favorites,
t and Beaten on All of
Them.
Installator Defeated Wheel of
Fortune, Equaling a Coast
Kecord.
Personue Turned Up Winner at En
ticing Odds — King William
Overhauled Scotch Rose.
It is very seldom that a jockey has the
mount on five favorites in one day and
laiis to land one o! ihem over the line
tirst, but to little Dick Clawson now be
longs that honor. Atkins & Lottridge's
clever lightweight sat astride five top
heavy choices yesterday and lan evening
his followers were out hunting up new
bank rolls.
In the opening race an ill-timed ride
saw Dick finish third on Alma and in the
next Colonel Dan "dogged" it with him.
Going to ihe post on Wheel of Fortune, a
1 to 4 chance in the third event, Harvey's
mare was tiptoed to a standstill by In
stallator, which horse equaled the ccast
record for one mile and a sixteenth.
Next he rode his employer's horse j
Double Quick and after skimming aionp j
in the lead to the stretch, his mount died j
away. It looked as though he rnieht re
deem himself in the final race with Scotch
Kose, but the filly faded away as the wire
was neared, and was beaten by King Will
iam. Altogether young Mister Clawson
experienced a most uncertain day of it.
The card had such aa easy look that a
large crowd crossed the bay from this side
to get a little ready money. The climatic i
conditions were all favorable and the only
plausible explanation of the talent's fall
was iliat they "didn't run as they doped." j
The race Alvero had the other day at I
lngleside evidently put him on edge, for
lie went to the post a VI to 1 shot iv the
opening six-furlong selling scramble,
and, coming from fifth position in the
stretch, came out first best in a tnree-head
finish with Sleepy Jane and Alma.
The Barns & Water house entry, Colonel
Dan, was han.mereu down from 8 to 5 to 7
to 10 to win the two-year-old run, also at
hx furlongs, and, after showing aj,high j
turn oi speed to the stretch, "blew up."
Plan, ridden by McNichols, then won in
the easiest possible fashion from George
Lee. Estro finished mthe show.
On the strength of their last meeting
"Wheel of Fortune looked a "moral" to
beat Installator, so the bjokmakers, feel
ing in a generous mood, hiid a little 2 to 5 j
against her, which soon gave way to 1 to I
4, while IS to 5 was the ruling post price |
against the Brutus horse The other three
starters, Fort Augustus, San Tuzza and
Don Daniel, were completely outclassed, j
The Wheel wns unable to shake sec
ond choice off, and about three'furlougs
from the wire Freeman, on Installator,
began drawing away from the favorite.
She respondad when a^ked in the stretch,
but could not get up, and was beaten less
than a length m 1:46%.
The finish to the :ime selline affair, for
which Double Qvuck was wade such a pro
nounced choice, wa- the most exciting of
the afternoon, Personne, Lady Hurst and
Marquise passing : he judges' heads on
the wire. The lirsi. choice, after leading
to the stretch, fiaJ enough, and Lady
Hurst took up the running, j >ined a little
later by Person ne on the inside and Mar
quise on tne outside. Youne Mclntyre,
on Person ne, had the best of the argu
ment, paining the verdict by a nose, with
Lady Hurst a neck in front of Marquise.
The winner was a 15 to 1 shot around po3t
time.
Scotch Rose, with but 94 pounds in the
saddle, looked very sweet to the handi
cappers, and was extensively backed 10
win the linal six-furlong sprint. S.ie led
to the paddock and was then broken out
by King William, the ->e.cond choice.

A WELL-KNOWN JOCKEY DEAD.
Bob Isom, the Colored Kider, Passes
Awny from Consumption.
Bob Isom, the noted colored jockey,
passed away in this city yesterday from
consumption. His demise occurred at 17
Park avenue and his body now lies lit
McEvoy's undertaking parlors at 1135
Market street.
Isom was but IS years of age, and was
first brou lit before the public some three
years ago. when he piloted the horses of
Colonel Jack Chirm. ' He soon blossomed
forth as one of the most promising riders
of the West, but an attack ot pneumonin
I contracted in the East followed by the
grippe made inroads on his weakened
constitution, and continued ill health kept
him out of the saddle of late.
His last engagement was with A. B.
j Spreckels, and in the hopes of improving
the little colored lad's health that turf
man sent Bob to Honolulu about one
year* ago. The trip benefit -d him only
temporarily, as did the treatment by
' inoculation to which lie was afterward
subjected.
Tne body will be shipped to Lexington,
Ky., where his mother and brother Albert
I now reside.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1897.
CALIFORNIA'S
GOLDEN JUBILEE
The Fiftieth Anniversary of
the Discovery of Gold
Will Be Celebrated.
The Miners and Pioneers Will
Join With the Natives in
Commemorating It.
The Committee Appointed to Arrange
for the Proper Observance
of the Occasion.
California's golden jubilee will be cele
brated in this city on the 24th of next
January, for that day marks the fiftieth
anniversary of the discovery of gold in
California. The semi-centennial of tho
great discovery which has done so much
to make this the greatest State in the
Union will not be allowed to pass by un
needed, for it was decided at a meeting
held in the Assembly rooms of the Mills
building last night that there should \>e
great rejoicing and appropriate exercises
to fitly commemorate the day which has
gone down as the golden day in the his
tory of theGolaen State.
The meeting was called by the San
Francisco Miners' Association for the pur
pose of securing joint action for the cele
bration. There were representatives of
the Society of Cnlilornia Pioneers, Cali
fornia Miners' Association, San Francisco
Miners' Association, Native Sons of the
Golden West and Native Daughters of the
Golden West present and also Mayor
I'helan. T. J. Parsons occupied the chair
and S. K. Thornton olliciated as secretary.
Tue meeting was a. very enthusiastic
one and aiscu-sion was general. Tirey L.
Ford introduced the following resolution,
which was adopted:
WHBREAS, The 24 tb day of January is annu
»lly celebrated by the Society of Californln
Pioneers in coinin^inoratiun oi t tie discovery
of >:n <1 in California nn that day ill 'he year
of 1848; and whereas, it appears that the So
ciety of California Pioneers whs ttie first to
take active steps toward the celebration of trie
pemi-centennial anniversary ol that event;
therefore be it
Beto vxt, That it is the sense of this meeting
that a public ce.ebraiiou oi the ssmi-cen
t«nninl anniversary of tne discover? of gold
in California Ie hold ill the city of San Fran
c.sco on the -4th day of January, 18U8, under
the name of "Oaliiornian Golden Jubilc >,"
and thm such celebration be held under the
auspices oi tne Society of Calitornia Pioneers
in co-operaiion with the California M'.ners'
Association, the N. 8. U. W. and the N. h. <J. \V.
A committee to consist of three each
from tbe California Miners' Association,
the Sini Francisco Miners' Association,
the N. 8. Gh W. :md the N. D G. W. was
appointed to meet this evening with a
committee of the Pioneers in Pioneer Hall
to take the first steps toward promoting
the celebration.
A MYSTERIOUS DECLINE.
Sudden Depression in the Price
of New Gas and Electric
Shares.
Cause of the Falling Off Not Obvious.
Eumor of New Discoveries in
Generating Light.
Aiiepression in the rrice of San Fran
cisco gas and electric stoclc has caused con
siderable comment on the street and led
to speculations concerning the cause. The
drop cannot be accounted for by any
known reason. It is surmised by some of
the brokers that rumors of a further ac-
auisition of rival interests, whereby the
property of the Mutual Electric Company
may be purchased, have had something
to do with the decline.
Complicating incidents of the situation
come in the form of teiegrnms from New
York. Recently resident brokers have
been adviseil to sell stock belonging to
parties in the East.
There is much lalk about new inven
tions and recent discoveries in cheap meth
ods of ) reducing brilliant illumination
for streets and houses. Great store is laid
on a recent patent for generating light,
and repesenlativ'-s of the new discovery
who were in" San Francisco a few days ago
have gone to New York.
When the San Francisco Gaslight Com
pany and the Edison Light and P >wer
company combined their interests a year
a>ro the consolidated new stock was in
j;reat demand 11s an investment. It is still
held high in the estimation 0 the public,
although a rival company, known as the
Mutual Electric Light Company, con
trolled, it is sad, by Alvinza llayward
and P. B. Cornwall, has been offering some
active competition.

NEW TO-DAT '
FIBROID TUMOR
Expelled by Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound.
Interview With Mrs. B. A. Lombard.
I have reason to think that I would
not be here now if it had not been for
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound. It cured me of a fibroid tumor
in my womb.
Doctors could do nothing- forme, and
they could not cure me at the hospital.
I will tell you about it:
I had been in my usual health, but
had worked quite hard. When my
monthly period came on, I flowed very
badly. The doctor gave me medicine,
but it did me no good. He said the
flow must be stopped if possible, and
he must find the cause of my trouble.
Upon examination, he found there
was a Fibroid Tumor in ray womb, and
gave me treatment without any benefit
whatever. About that time a lady
called on me, and recommended Lvdia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
said she owed her • life to it. I
said I would try it, and did. Soon
after the flow became more natural and
regular. I still continued taking the
Compound for some time. Then the
doctor made an examination again,
and found everything all right. The
tumor had passed away and that dull
ache was gone.— Mrs. B. A. Lombajid,
Box 71, Westdale, Mass. I
having recently returned from the entrance
to White Puss. He declares that the town and
the people of Sknguay nave been grossly mis
represented and maligned; that the town is
all right, taud that Seattle especially has tried
to injure it in order to control tho outfitting
trade. He brines with him copies of the
Skaguay News, which teems with enthusiastic
suggestions of a boom, me most conclusive
evidence ot which is the construciion already
begun of a loir tramway by easy stages over
the comparatively low and sheltered White
Pass to the lakes, a distance of forty miles.
This tramway will have logs end to end for
rails and a plank track between for horses to
walk on iv dragging the cars.
KELIANCE TO PALO ALTO.
Practice Game With Stanford To-Blor
row to Prepare Each for Coining
Matches.
The Reliance football team will go to
Palo Alto this iifternoon to play a practice
game on the University campus with the
Stanford team.
Both teams are still sore after their ter
ribly tierce and final match game last
Saturday, in which the giant and veteran
clubmen won by a score of 10 to 0 and
gave the hard-lighting collegians the most
valuable experience they have had in a
game tiiis season.
On Frtd.iy the Stanford football squad
will leave the university for a few days'
outing at Congress Springs, where the
players got their final practice last season
and where they will nave about four days'
hard work and three days' comp.ete rest
beiore ttje Thanksgiving match.
The Stanford players are indignant at a
report circulated here to the affeci that
they willingly lost ihelas-t game to effect
California and the volume of the attend
ance at the coming intercollegiate mutch.
They acknowledge that tney were fairly
overmatched at the tim?, but they ai*o de
clare it to be their beli-f, and Coach
Brooke agrees with them, that after they
have attaired their final form from the
next week ot practice they coul 1 de:eat

DR. A. T. BANDEN— Dear Sir: Previous to using your Belt I had been troubled with
Rheumatism of Ions; standing, and wns so b.id that I could not bend down If I hud seen a
twenty-dollar bill 1 cud not have stooped to pick it up. but I can now truthfully say that I
can move around with pcriect ease and c«mtort and the stiffness and soreness that I "have en-
dured I can fesi no longer. Two friends of mine have also been cured by the use of your Belt,
and I would not part with it for any sum if I could not get another like it. I am moie man
pleased to say a word for the benefit which I derived from the use of your Belt. Yours very
truly, . J. a. SULLIVAN.

Doctor's Assistant. Here is a letter from "Constant Reader," who
wants to know if flashes of light before the
eyes are dangerous. Has been informed that
they are caused by a disordered stomach.
Medical Director. They may be. Catarrh of the stomach most
frequently causes them, and if that is
what ails "Constant Reader" a Ripans
Tabule will give prompt relief, and a course
of them according to directions will re-
move the difficulty. • Sometimes, however,
the trouble is caused by diseases of the eye
or of the nervous system and kidneys.
When of this sort it is of serious import.
