on the Card.
Satsuma, the Burns handicap winner,
came out at Ingleside yesterday for the
first time since his big victory and rolled
up another small bundle of coin for Dr.
Rowell. The chestnut horse won a most
peculiarly run race. It was the mile event
for four-year-olds and upward, and Sat
suma opened an 8 to 6 favorite. There
was no demand for him at all, the slick
ones getting aboard Corrlgan's Joe 111
man, sending him to the post a 3 to 2 fa
vorite, while the odds against Dr. Row
ell's horse lengthened out to 3 to 1. Cash
Sloan managed to get away from the
post poorly with Ullman and was never
in It. Newsgatherer was allowed to make
a snail's pace to the stretch, where
Shields leisurely took the lead with Sat
suma and won easily from Frank's horse
In the slow time of 1:42)4. "Pop" Weaver
on Cabrillo rode his horse to excellent
advantage, finishing a bang up third at
odds of 100 to 1. In the final race of the

IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL.
Brunton, Stanford's Sprinter, Beats
the Charge of Having Been
Stanford athletics have been considera
bly torn up over charges of professional
ism brought against John Brunton, the
seriousness of wnich endangered the
chances of the crack sprinter being al
lowed to participate in the field day meet
next Saturday. The exclusion of Brunton
from entering the events would have ma
terially lessened Stanford's chances of
coming off victor at the meet, so when a
faculty investigation which lasted a week
exonerated Brunton from all the charges
there was universal rejoicing, but the ex
ultation was expressed in whispers, lest
Berkeley get wind of the affair and at
tempt to bar the sprinter from compet
ing in the events.
Brunton was called home by the illness
of his father the first of the month, and
when upon his return he presented him
self at the registrar's office to enroll as a
student he was informed that he would
have to answer charges preferred against
him before he could rep-ister. He ap
peared before a raculty committee and
found that the snecific charge was that
he had been paiu money to return to
school in order that he might be a con
testant at the Berkeley-Stanford meet.
Several rather stormy meetings of the
committee were held, and Brunton proved
that the accusation was unfounded.
While the name of the party who
brought the charges is not definitely
known, one of the professors prominently
Identified with athletics Is strongly sus
pected, and the feeling against him
among the students is very bitter. Brun

team and one of the star athletes of the

siderable jealousy, and snlte work Is be

LONDON, April 19.— The Times says
editorially this morning: "Delay on the
American side can now do no good. It
is better that what the resident has

quite conceivable that in the long run
both will have reason to regret the de

that "America's change of attitude
toward England and her appreciation

Senator Lodge's proposal to pay the
Bering Sea award."
The Daily News says editorially: "In
full sympathy with America, we can
not help thinking that the resolutions
of the House were wiser than those of
the Senate. The jingoes have won the
day, but it is for no empty punctilio
that the United States is contending."
The Standard says: "We are per
suaded that it will be the general ver

emptorily calling upon Spain to de

Government is departing wrongly and
unwisely from principles hitherto re

TO EJECT SETTLERS
FROM TIDE LANDS.
SACRAMENTO, April 19.— Some time
since a communication was received by
Governor Budd from the District Attor
ney of Los Angeles County, setting forth
that certain parties— Rudolph Axman, T.
Leggett, J. C. Clemmens and others— had
squatted upon certain unwanted tide
lands of the State at San Pedro. 7n this
communication the Governor was request
ed to direct the Sheriff to cans.' the re
moval of the parties. After referring the
matter to the Attorney-General and that
official giving as his opinion that the re
quest of the District Attorney shall be
complied with, the Governor to-day is
sued a proclamation addressed to Sheriff
Burr of Los Angeles County directing him
to eject the intruders, and if resistance
was offered to call to his aid the whole
power of the county.
So it would appear that even before a
gun is fired in the coming conflict with
Spain there may be a mild outbreak of
warfare within the borders of our own
POWERS ON THE EVE OF
TAKING A NEW STEP.
LONDON, April 20.— The Rome cor-
respondent of the Daily Mail says:
Italia, the org-an of the Foreign Office,
publishes to-night the fallowing: "The
powers are on the eve of taking a new
step, namely, requesting the United
States and Spain, In the event of war,
to localize the hostilities to Cuba and
the neighboring waters. This step will
be taken immediately after a declara
tion of war. Utter pessimism prevails
in diplomatic quarters here, the Vati
can alone being hopeful of peace. The
Pope is working energetically to be ac
cepted as arbitrator, but he admits that
Cuba has already morally ceased to
belong to Spain."
McLeod Loses a Match.
ST. PAUL, April 19.— Dan McLeod, the
■well-known wrestler, appeared in this
city to-night in a contest with M J.
Dwyer of St. Paul, and the latter won.
McLeod Is much heavier, weighing about
172 pounds to Dwyer's 154. and the terms
of the match were that McLeod was to
throw Dwyer three times within an hour
He gained the first fall after a hard tus
sel lasting 34V£ minutes, but was unable
to score another fall, so Dwyer was de
clared the winner.

LOS ANGELES, April 18.— W&* Supreme

Special Dispatch to The CalL
FRESNO, April 19.— The twenty
eighth annual session of the California
State Medical Society was called to or
der at 11:15 by the president. Dr. Ceph
as L. Bard of Ventura. The meeting
is usually well attended, largely owing
to the fact that there is quite a fight
for the office of president in progress.
The morning was largely devoted to
politics, and, indeed, though the sci
entific papers are numerous and valu
able and call forth much interest, the
all-important question is "politics."
During the morning session Dr.
George F. Hanson of San Francisco
read a paper descriptive of some of the
California flora that were valuable or
could become aluable medicinally. It
was suggested by the chair that this
investigation might become valuable if

WILL KNOCK OUT
NEW YORK, April 19.— A Washing
ton special to the Herald says: Spain's
privateering plans will be knocked Into
a cocked hat if the efforts of the admin
istration are of avail. These efforts
will be directed toward securing from
the maritime powers of the world whose
ships carry American goods an an-
nouncement that their flags protect the
cargoes of the vessel over which they
Such an announcement would be in
line with the declaration of Paris of
1866, to which they are parties, that
"the neutral flag covers the enemies*
goods with the exception of contraband
of war," and that '"neutral goods with
exception of contraband of war are not
liable to capture under the enemies'
Simultaneously with this announce
ment it is expected by the officials that
the maritime powers will bring pres
sure to bear upon Spain which will
cause her to observe their declaration.
The determination of the. administra
tion to approach the powers on the
question has a precedent which was
established by Secretary Seward Im
mediately after the outbreak of the re
bellion in 1861. At that time Mr. Seward
telegraphed an identical instruction to
the Ministers of Russia, Austria, Bel
gium, Italy and Denmark, informing
them that the President of the United
States was disposed to enter into ne
gotiations for the accession of this
Government to the declaration of Paris.
On account of the existence of war be
tween the North and South, the powers
of Europe failed to enter into the nego
tiations suggested by this Government.
