SWELL BETTORS
WERE DISTRESSED
Both Senator Bland and
Tripping Beaten in the
Stake Event.
Judge Denny, the Only Other
Contender, Won in a Com
mon Gallop.
Imp. Trance Headed Her Field Out
at Odds of 10 to I— Lost Girl
Won Driving at 25 to 1.
The upsets in the flat racing at Ingle- j
side yesterday were quite as numerous as |
the spills in the steeplechase. In the lat- |
(er parody eight timber-toppers started, j
:-. nd alter a tempestuous voyage three un- |
ified. In the Rancho del Paso stake at )
one mile and six furlongs, the swagger I
number of the programme, throe con- ,
tested for the $1500 suspended from the j
wire in a silken lag, and Senator Bland
finished tbiru. The result caused mourn- ,
ing in two States — Montana and Califor- j
nia.
The long-distance event was fifth on the
card, and appeared to be the signal for a
general loosening up among bettors. The
conditions compelled Senator Bland to
pick up 115 pounds, allowed imp. Trip
ping in at 93. while Judge Denny shoul
dered 107. The betting opened with the
Senator a 7 to 10 choice.
The Montana folks were silent until the
price lengthened to '.) to 10 and then they
loaded up until tliey were as stoop-shoul
dered as a. Chilcoot Pass packer from the
weight of tickejs they carried around.
The Eastern talent strung theirs with
Jennings' mare Trippinc. The 10 and 12
to 1 chalked against Joe Piggoit and Judj.«
Denny caught the once- a- week delegation.
A premium in the way of the giad hand
was extended to each purchaser of a
ticket on the black horse by the book
makers.
There was no suspense at the post.
Bland and Tripping went away head and
head, with Piggoit on Judge Denny trail
ing several lengths behind, 'The six fur
longs was covered in 1:16 and mile
whs reached in 1:42%.
Before another quarter had been tramped
the pace-makers began bucking up, and
Judge Denny literally walked by them
and won at the end by ten open lengths
in a ereat big gallon, going the route in
3:04%. Tripping led the Senator out for
the middle portion oi the stake. Piggott'n
followers swarmed around the stand
yelling like Comanches, while a smile
illuminated the merry Joe's face which re
sembled the raising of a curtain in a
Montgomery-avenue variety theater.
Bland's defeat was r.ot the only rebuff
the big crowd met with. Four other
lavorites were slaughtered. The longest
priced winners were Lost Girl M and imp.
Trance at 12 to 1.
The first trial of the new steeplechase
course through the infield was a success;
that is, if acrobatic falls, sprawling riders
and tired and obstinate nags can be ac- j
counted a success. Al Stanford, mounted '
on Silverado, thought he had the course |
down pat and led the way. He won and '■
Mestor hnished second, with Reno third. j
None of the trio went the correct course, i
but the result was allowed to stand. Al- I
though Our Climate bad worked tbe !
course, he refused to do the same thing j
yesterday when a favorite. Tortoni went j
over the wing of the third jump, remov
ing much of the lumber in tne ascent.
Charlie Boots and Hyman became short
of breath somewhere near the pumping
bouse. Each will need a balloon to ever
clear the obstacles. Reno is a high jumper,
but would probably do better if a band of
music were stationed at each jump, as he
has been giving exhibitions of bis prowess
up through Canada, and is accustomed to
the noise furnished by country silver
cornet bands.
The brown eelding, George Lee, from
Sam Hildreth' s stable, was a prohibitive
favorite for the opening seven-furlong run
for two-year-olds, and won without effort.
"Watoma, the second choice, first into the
stretch tired perceptibly at the end and
was beaten for the place by Bonnie lone,

a 30 to 1 outsider, heavily played for tbe
place and show.
The fates were unkind to both Horatio,
the 8 to 5 favorite, and Parthemax, tbe
strong second choice In the mile purse
affair which followed, resultine in a vic
tory for imp. Trance, a 12 to 1 outsider.
A ragged start saw Parthemax away
poorly and again during the progress of
th«» race be was interfer?d with on two
different occasions. A furlong from the
wire Magnet swerved, spoiling the chance
of Horatio for first money. Young Mc-
Xichols on imp. Trance then assumed the
lead and hard ridden beat Parthemax
half a length in 1:42. The favorite was
laDped on the second horse.
"Loag-shot" Cotiley apparently cannot
get Zamar away from the post. Honig's
sprin.er was a 9 to 5 choice for the third
event, a six-furiong dash with a field of
eight starting.
Scotch Rose made the pace to the
stretch, where she quit. Hennessy on the
25 to 1 ■ hot. Lost Girl, now showed in
front, and in a punishing drive led the
favorite past the finishing post, with
George Rose a close third.
After a long siege of ill luck Libertine
finally captured a race. He went to the
post for the final seven-furlong tour next
in demand to Bliss RucKer, which young
ster was an Bto 5 choice. Henry Shields
got Libertine away well for a change, and,
maintaining the front position through
out, downed the two-year-old choice clev
erly by a length, stepping the distance in
1:28. Ostler Joe ran in third place all the
way and finished there.

A. B. Sprockets and Thomas H. Williams Jr.
were among the spectators at the track yes

James L. Flood, the millionaire, who is fond
of inking a shot »t the moon now and then,
had a bet on imp. Trance as well as on
Parthemax. He enjoyed the finish, not car
ing particularly which woe, though benefited
must the way it came.
It is more than likely that Dan Holliday,
trainer of imp. Trance, will soon have an op
portunity of engaging in some other business.
judge Murphy has been investigating tne
Australian mare's races and says lii-all proba

George Snider, v/bo rode her in a race on No

DURHAM'S LAST CHANCE
A Bitter Fight in th«« State Supreme
Court Tit-Morrow Morning.
There will be a great legal battle fought
to-morrow morning before the Justices
of the Supreme Court sitting in bank.
The contest will be on tne motion of Act
ing Attorney-General Carter to have the
court dism.ss all of the appeals in the
Durrant murder case made by the con
demned man. Twice has Theodore Dar
rant been sentenced and he has appealed
from the judgment of the Superior Court
in both instances. The dates set for his
execution have long since passed.
Tue United States Supreme Court and
the Federal cotir b have passed upon his
case and refused to interfere with the
orders of the State courts, and
now the proposition of tbe acting
Attorney-General is to clear away
these old appeals, which he claims are
now inoperative, so that the murderer of
Blanche Lamout may be brought back to
this city and be resentenced.
This is exactly what the attorneys for
the defendant do not want, for if it is
effected Durrani's lease of life is likely to
be near its expiration. Hence there will
be light, and all the eloquence, logic and
law that can be brought to bear by both
sides will be presented orally. It is ex
pected that Attorneys D^unrey. Dickin
son and Boar J man, tor Durrant, will each
make an address, but Mr. Carter is likely
to make his contest alone. An early de
cision of the State officer's motion is ex
pected.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL., SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1897.
CHORUS GIRL, MANGY DOG AND "FLIM FLAM."
"I think I have been treated awfully mean; that's what I do. That horrid
man is simply trying to 'Aim flam' me and I won't stand it. The very idea of try
ing to pawn off a mangy cur like that on me just because I love dogs. lam go
ing to have my $2 back or a nice little doggie with nothing the matter with him,
and if I don't there is going to be some trouble."
The speaker was Miss de Leon, a pretty litttle chorus girl playing with the
In Gay New York company, and she bad a tale of woe rising almost to the
tragic, including such stage paraphernalia as a mangy dog, a nickel watch, a
friendly policeman to whom she told her trouble, plenty of tears and a heavy
villain in the shape of a dog fancier.
"You see," she exclaimed with a pout, "I always did think a little dog was
the dearest, cutest thing in the world, and when I passed Robinson's Kearny
street store and saw some of them in the window I made up my mind right there
that I must have one, so I went in and inquired their price. The first one was
$15. I had only $2 with me and told Mr. Robinson so. He said he couldn't let a
St.itz dog go for that price, but he had another one for $10, a fox terrier that was
too sweet for anything. When 1 was almost crying because I didn't have enough
to buy him be said I could give him mv watch, which was hanging from my waist
and the money I had and take the dog.
"I jumped at the offer, and went out with the doggie under my arm. Up the
street I met a policeman, a nice-looking man, whose name I have learned is
Rich tor. He asked me if I got the dog in Robinson's, and when I said 'yes' he
told me the little fellow had the mange, and showed me some spots on him
covered with a white powder. Of course I just posted back there and explained to
Air. Robinson that I wasn't going to have any mangy dog pawned off on me like
that. He denied that the dog bad tbe mange, but after I had expostulated with
him awhile he threw my watch to me and broke the crystal. He wouldn't give
me my money, and saiu I had bad $2 worth of fun out of the affair. Why, be was
just too 'fresh' for anything. It was a clear case of 'flim-flam,' and I think he
ought to be made to give me my money or go to prison."
That is the chorus-girl side of the affair as given by Miss de Leon. Robinson's
is a little different. He says the pretty brunette nearly oothered the life out of
him trying to persuade him to give her a dog, and made some customers wait for
nearly an hour while he was talking with her, and that when he let her have a
spitz dog for the $2 and the watch she returned shortly afterward with the state
ment that the dog was shedding and she didn't want him. Tuensbegota fox
terrier, and brought that back, saying a policeman told her it had the mange.
He said he called the officer in, who stated his belief that the dog bad the
mange.
"But," says Robinson, "I proved by an expert that it hadn't. I gave the girl
her watch and told her I would try to get the consent of the owner for her to take
another one she wanted at $5. I kept her money as a guarantee, and promised
her that in a day or two she could return and give me the other $3 and take the
dog. lam sorry of the whole business, and wish now I had given her the money
too. lam going to hunt that girl up and give ncr the money and half the store
not to bother me any more.''
Robinson says Miss de Leon's love for dogs must be something heroic, because
she remarked that she c»red so much for them tbat she would like to crawl into
the window front where they are kept and take the whole lot in her lap. Despite
the trouble ot the past, he is willing for her to do this, as he thinks such an act
would draw custom "to beat the band.*'
BELCHER RULES
AGAINST DENMAN
County Clerk May Appoint
as Many Assistants as
He Requires.
Injunction Prohibiting: Widber
From Paying- Salaries
Dissolved.
Mayor Phelan Has Determined to
Appeal the Case to the Supreme
Court.
For a few minutes yesterday there was
happiness in tbe County Clerk's office and
up and down the cheerless corridors of
the new City Hall. James Denman had
lost his action before Judge Belcher to re
duce the staff of C. F. Curry and cast
out into the world a few court clerks. The
jubilation was shortlived, however, as
Treasurer Widber, with visions of a pos
sible appeal from the judgment of tbe
Superior Court, refused to pay a majority
of the warrants, and for a time a small
sized riot was imminent. Before recog
nizing the claims of tbe host of clerks the
Treasurer will consult his lawyer, and act
on his legal judgment.
The case oi Denman to enjoin Widber
from paying tbe salaries of a certain num
ber of clerks concluded shortly after noon.
Counsel closed the argument and Judge
Belcher immediately gave bis opinion on
the case. He sustained the demurrer of
the defendants to the complaint and
ordered the tern porary restraining clause
or injunction to be set aside.
Judge Belcher finds that the law pro
viding for the appointment of nine regis
ter clerks at a time when there were only
nine departments of the Superior Court
could not be enforced when the number of
vrimen bad been raided to twelve.
Arguments on the case were heard Friday
and yesterday. Philip G. Galpin appeared
for Denman and A. L. Hart, T. D. Rior
dan and George D. Collins for the
defendant. **•?*§£
Galpin argued that the law regarding
the appointment of only nine register
clerks was still In force, while the defence
held tbat the County Clerk should be
guided by the statute of 1880, which gave
him the right to appoint as many clerks
as the transaction of the business of the
office required. When the argument
closed, as was expected, Judge Beicner
deliverel his opinion orally from the
bench dissolving the injunction. On re
ceipt of the news many 01 the clerks made
a break for the Treasurer's office, but
they were disappointed, as Widber re
fused to cash their warrants. Later in
the day a lew demands were recogn:z?d,
among them the warrant of A. J. Martin,
tbe clerk against whom the suit was di
rected, but the majority will have to wait
till Monday morning for their money.
Mayor Phelan. who was instrumental in
the instigation of the suit, has expressed
his determination to take tbe case to a
higher tribunal, and this may again re
suit iv a lock being placed on the coffer*
in tie Treasurer's office and long drawn
out suffering on the part of the clerks
tending the decision of the Supreme
Court. x

pan on my lap ior a desk, while the air out
side is about 25 deg. above zero.
Take that little map 1 sent you and trace
our course from Lake Bennett down, which
we made in good time. On that lake we came
near losing our boat and goods, for the gale
broke off our mast twice in an hour, and
finally we had to cut it away, and run before
the wind and waves till driven ashore, where
tbe waves tnroatencd to swamp us and our
boat, but by getting into the water up to our
necks, unloading our boat and then working
ft carefully along the shore to a place not
quite so much exposed, we got it out on skids
and then died ourse.ves witn big campfires
ami changed our clothes, packed our stuff
around and waited til the evening of the next
day to get a lair wind (and not too much of
it), and from that time on we have been row
lug and stilling right along.
Tapish Lake, Windy Arm and Marsh Lake
were a regular picnic for us, for, beyond a few
hours' rowing, we sailed every day, making 55
to 90 miles per day. At the cud of Tagish
Lake we met the Canadian customs officers,
and a Mr. Godson in charge treated us very
kindly.
We had to wait for weather at the head of
Lake Lebarge from 10 o'clock one day till day
light the next, when we took to the galley
seats and rowed the whole distance, thirty
one miles, and it was rough without any wind
—with any wind we think it would be the
most aitliei.lt aud dangerous of anything on
th ■ route. We had good luck there and also at
tne canyon, which we came to almost without
knowing it and »ucn a piace you cannot con
ceive simply a mass ot water about as great
as th • Sacramento River crowded into walls of
rocs GO to 150 feet wide on a rocky incline of
about one nunured feet in half a mi. c. The
water is one mad whirl, rush and swirl, tow
ering above ..on on both sides at once; then
tossing you atoll like ■ feather; the next
second down again, and you experience
all the McGiuty sensations in their fullest and
v. iciest sense, 'l hen ben you are past feeling
sensations of any kind you she ot like an
arrow out into comparatively smooth water,
where your hair assumes its ural color,
and breathing la fe.t to bo a luxury after all.
Five miles lurther down we came to the
White Horse rapids, and while they look bad
and are bad they are not equal to the Canyon,
because even if a man tips over or swamps his
boat he has a cnance for his life, and the cur
rent will carry every thing through anyhow
open banks and shallow water all along both
sides of the main current. As long as the boat
is steered into the deep channels she is bound
to get through.
Tuere, for safety, we took out about 500
pounds of grub and carried it around the
lalls three-fourths of a mile, but I would not
do so again. Nearly everybody now goes
through with their boats, and 1 have neard of
no accidents. Along some portions of the
river we cou .d use our anils, but it was nearly
ah rowing, and me last four days altogether,
making 00, 56, 70 and 70 miles each oi the
respective days.
At the time the letter was written the
writer bad not seen much of Dawson.
The prevailing estimate of the population
ranged from 5000 to 6000.
