ASSAULTED AND ROBBED BY TWO MEN R. J. Harrison Is the Victim of Thugs. WAYLAID ON SECOND STREET RENDERED HELPLESS BY A BLOW FROM A SANDBAG. His Desp«rate Assailants Get Away With His Gold Watch, Money and Two Valuable Diamond Studs. R. J. Harrison , formerly of th© firm of I Sherwood, Sherwood & Harrison, is the ' latest victim of thugs. Mr. Harrison was walking along Folsom street Tuesday night, and when near Second he was at tacked by two men, one of whom struck him on the head with a sandbag, fell ing him to the sidewalk. While lying prostrate one of his assailants robbed him of a gold watch and chain, two dia- \ Bond studs and $15 in silver. After giv- i Ing him a parting kick the thugs ran ! down Folsom street and made their es- ] cape. Mr. Harrison subsequently went to po lice headquarters, where he reported the robbery to Captain Spillane. beveral of ficers were at once dispatched to the scene, but they were unable to get a trace of the desperate men. Mr. Harrison describes the man who struck him with the sandbag as being about 35 years of age and having a red dish mustache. lit- was poorly dressed and wore a slouch hat, which was pulled down over his eyes. His companion was rather short, and had several weeks' growth of beard on his face. In telling his story to Chief Lees yes terday, the victim of the thugs said he had been visiting a friend, and was on the way home, when he noticed the rob bers. They were concealed in a doorway, and as he passed them the taller of the two men attacked him. As he fell to the sidewalk the wielder of the sandbag told his companion to "search the bloke." Catching a gljmpse of the diamond studs which adorned Mr. Harrison's shirt bosom, the younger rob ber hastily wrenched them from their fastenings". After satisfying themselves that they had secured all his valuables, the thugs left the scene and immediately disappeared in the darkness. During the past few weeks several rob beries have occurred in the same vicinity. The police are inclined to believe that the men who assaulted Mr. Harrison are re sponsible for the hold-ups, and every ef fort is being made to apprehend them. TO SETTLE THE UNIFORM QUESTION AN APPEAL WILL EE SENT TO WASHINGTON. Labor Men Despair of Being Able to Make a Satisfactory Agree ment With Major Long. The publication of the fact that a num ber of the uniforms for the volunteers ■wore being manufactured in Chinatown has created a stir which promises to res urrect the old question of Chinese labor. During the past week every labor organi zation in the city has discussed the mat ter ar.d committees from both central bodies have been conferring with Labor Commissioner ruzgerald and Major Long In an effort to have the matter adjusted without appealing to the War Depart ment, but no satisfactory arrangements have as yet been made. At the meeting of the Labor Council last night its committee reported that, while Major Long had promised to re quest contractors to' give the work to white people only, he would not agree to imposing a fine for violation of such an agreement. A committee from the Build ing Trades Council was present and re quested the sister body to indorse the res olutions published in this morning's Call, a copy of which ha.s already been for warded to Washington by telegraph. The council, after a lengthy discussion, in dorsed the resolutions and ordered that a telegram be sent to Washington urging that in the future a clause be inserted in all contracts which would effectually put a stop to the work being done by Chinese. Bo heated did the members become over the matter that many are of the opinion that, should the Government refuse to grant this request, such action be taken by worklngmen as would compel recruit ing officers to go to Chinatown for vol unteers on the next call for troops. The routine business of the council was very light. The Musicians' Union report ed that the Society of Old Friends had canceled its contract with a non-union band and had agreed to have union music at its picnic. The late Judge Campbell ■was president of this society, and he had been appealed to to use his influence in the matter. After his death a letter was found in his pocket addressed to the union, stating that he was a friend of workingmen and would do his utmost to give the job to union musicians. It was at a meeting called chiefly to consider this matter that he died. The letter was forwarded to the union by Archie Camp bell, and was ordered spreaa on the min utes. It was further reported that busi ness was fairly good, owing to the num ber of musicians employea in escorting troops from the depot to the camps. The printers reported that the strik© condition was practically unchanged, and that the union is constantly in need of financial assistance, as the strike ex penses average over $1200 per week. Semi monthly donations are made oy many of the local unions, which are very accept able, and an appeal has been sent out to Eastern unions. The Fresno Scandal. "When the oaso of Myron H. Azhdaerfan, Mrs. Elsie Williams and Mrs. Grace Loose, charged with extorting $2000 from Millionaire Nevllls of the Rawhide gold mine, wns called in Judge Joachtmscn's court yesterday afternoon to go on with the cross-examination of Mrs. Warren Newcomb. Assistant District Attorney Dunne asked f<>r a continuation, as be was engaged in a case in the Superior Court. The attorneys for the defense of fered no objection and the case was con tinued till this morning at 11 o'clock. ADVEBTISEMENTS.

COURTS TO BE INVOKED CLARA AND CHARLES SOLICIT OUS FOR THEIR FATHER Rumor Persistent in Asserting That a Strong Effort Will Be Mad© to Change the Ole Man's Residence. There was a rumor current yesterday that Charles and Clara Sutro, children of Adolph Sutro, would resort to legal proceedings to-day, with a view to having the enfeebled philanthropist restored to his home by the ocean. Some weeks ago a gTeat deal of comment was occasioned by his being forcibly removed from there by his daughter, Mrs. Dr. Merritt, despite the protestations of other children. Since then he has been occupying apartments in the Merritt residence, receiving the care and professional skill of his daugh ter. It was said that the other children were opposed to his remaining there, as he missed the ocean breezes and the fa miliar scenes of his beautiful home, and that this was retrmling his recovery. Rumor also had it that the two chil dren had combined against Mrs. Dr. Mer ritt and -had instructed their attorneys, Messrs. Bishop and Wheeler, to institute proper legaJ remedies for the possession of his person. Miss Clara Sutro, a daughter of the ex- Mayor, was seen at the family residence last evening, and although not denying that such a course would be pursued, was reluctant to say anything in the matter and referred her interviewer to her at torney, Charles S. Wheeler. When seen the latter did not deny that he was going to file some papers, whether to-day or to-morrow he could nor sa\ "There is not to my persona! knowledge anything in the rumor," said Mr. Wheeler, "that papers will be filed to-day to gain possession of his person. It is my opin ion Mr. Sutro will be in his home within a short time— that is. as soon as his strength and the weather will permit. I am the attorney for Miss Clara, and as such have not been called on to prepare siu-h papers. The documents that will be filed shortly relate to taxes and rmittt-r.-* appertaining to the estate. I am not de sirous at present to make known their contents, as it would be unprofessional. Everything is going along smoothly, and I think that the children will reach an amicable settlement and the old gentle man will be removed to the Heights. I can assure you that so far as I know there will he no effort to have him taken there by legal means." PABST CAFE BEOPENS. Hagerty & Leor.hardt Are the New Managers Who Will Conduct It to Success. The Pabst Cafe at the junction of Powell and Ellis streets is to be re opened. Such an announcement will undoubt edly come to many of the people of the city as a pleasurable surprise and the consummation of a long existent desire. Since its discontinuance some months ago San Francisco has been deprived of one of its most select, handsome and most appropriate family as well as private resorts and its recontinuance is looked forward to by the general pub lic with eager anticipation. There are many cafes throughout the length and breadth of the city, but there is none that people can look to with more pride than the gem of ar tistic and architectural beauty on Powell street. Its reopening under a new management will most certainly inspire the public with confidence in the indefatigable efforts that are being exerted by the present owners in open ing the once popular resort on a larger and more elaborate style and Bystem of accommodation. Messrs. Charles Leonhardt and Rob ert D. Hagerty, two of San Francisco's native sons, are the new managers and need little, if any, introduction to the public. For six years they conjointly conducted the Golden Gate Villa at the Ocean Beach and it Is needless to say well and successfully. They are young men who understand their business thoroughly and intend to put this knowledge and skilled tact of manage ment toward furthering the success of their new venture by first endeavoring to please their patrons, as they have been accustomed to do for years. The accommodation of the Pabst Cafe at present Is forty private dining rooms, including one large dining-room superbly decorated and adorned with valuable and costly original oil paint- Ings, depicting the principal character istic scenery of California, Including glimpses of Yasemite Valley, the su perb beauty of our mountain systems, etc. The cafe is destined to spring into popularity almost as soon as it is open ed under the new management, as un der a complete and more desirable ac commodation, the lack of which has been the cause of Its previous decay as a popular resort. Its proximity with the leading theaters and easy access to almost the entire railway system of the city will increase its popularity, as it will be most convenient to theater goers. * Alleged Horse Thieves. F. Buchignani. a teamster living at 1417% Dupont street, swore to a complaint in Judge Joachimsen's court yesterday for the arrest of C. Bacigalupi and Robert Jlentz two boys, on the charge of grand larceny. Buchignant alleges that he had two horses grazing In a lot at Lombard and Francisco streets, and Tuesday after noon the two boys rode away with the horses and it is thought sold them. Will Examine the Books. Judge Belcher yesterday granted City Attorney Creswell permission to examine the books of the City Treasury for the purpose of securing evidence to be used in the suit of the city against ex-Treas urer Widber and his sureties, the Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland. In ;>!! probability the suit will be tried next month. Found a Babe. Found a Body.

Morse Will Succeed Irving M, Scott, Who Has Just Resigned, Irving M. Scott has been called East to consult the Navy Department forth with on matters of grave importance. In order to make the trip without violat ing that law which forbids park commissioners to leave the State he has for warded his resignation. Mr. Scott's term had really expired, though under the law a commissioner Is allowed to hold office until his successor is appointed and qualified. It will please those who know his sterling qualities to learn that Dr. John F. Morse will probably be appointed to the position made by Mr. Scott's resignation, and that the appointment will be made at an early date. Dr. Morse has a wide circle of friends, and nobody stands higher among laymen as well as among mem bers of his own profession than he. His education and habits have been such as to carry out his esthetic tastes. He is a lover of good horses and an admirer of art and landscape gardening, so he will bring to the duties of commissioner a most thorough comprehension of the needs of the park and a skillful taste in helping to mold it into various forme of use and beauty. COMMISSIONERS ARE PATRIOTIC Golden Gate Park for Military Drills. PARADES ON THE ROADS TBOOPS IN THE CITY'S PLEAS UBE" GROUND. Full Use of the Main Driveway Up to 9 O'Clock a. m. — Side Boads Are Freely Accorded. The volunteer troops !n camp at Richmond find Golden Gate Park a de lightful place for exercise. The broad avenues and smooth place around the music stand afford ideal drill grounds, and the Park Commissioners in their patriotism have ignored many idle ob jections to the use of the park for the purposes of military instruction and given the regimental and company of ficers much greater freedom than is al lowed for purposes of drill on the Pre sidio reservation, owned by the Gov ernment. At the Presidio only the drill plain can be used by the soldiers. At Golden Gate Park the main drive way can be used by the troop 3 until 9 o'clock in the morning. Use of the side drives and the ample spaces around the music stand is permitted at all times. At the last meeting of thu Board of Park Commissioners some protests were made by persons who ride and drive in the park against the use of the main driveway for drilling troops. The protests allege that the evolutions of the various command.! frighten the horses and increase the danger of accidents. In order to ac commodate the military people and at the same time keep the main avenue free for the pleasure and convenience of the public, Irving M. Scot! intro duced a resolution, which \va9 adopted, giving the soldiers free use of the main driveway until 9 a. m. each day, and after that hour giving it exclusively to the public use. No restriction was placed on the use of any other section of the park drives by the troops. The lawns, of course, are not used for drill purposes at any military post and are not so used at Golden Gate Park. The generous use of the grounds in Golden Gate Park accorded by the Board of Commissioners Is appreciated by the officers and enlisted men of the volunteer army encamped at Rich mond. It Is a beautiful sight to see the men marching and drilling, and thou sands of spectators enjoy the spectacle, regarding it as an additional attraction of the magnificent pleasure ground. It will be counted to the credit of patriotic San Francisco in years to come that her superb park was practically given to the Government as a camp of in struction for the volunteer regiments. Ysaye on Sunday. The programme for the farewell con cert to be given by Ysaye, Gerardy and Laehaume at the Baldwin Theater on Sunday night will be as follows: Trio, C Minor Beethoven MM.

El Campo. The Ukiah was pretty well crowded the day our boys sailed for Manila, but on Sunday there is an abundance of room for all comers. Four round trips give plenty of deckroom for all. There is no dust at El Campo. so the rain wasn't really necessary. It made the trees look fresher, however. Dairymen Seek Pasture. In consequence of the dry season and the advance in the price of feed several dairymen have sought new pasturage for their stock. Among those who have de cided to move their stock from San Fran cisco is Richard Keller. Kelier has start ed his entire herd for Marin County, where he expects to obtain better and cheaper feed. Several other milkirfen will move their stock to adjoining counties in the near future for the same reason. War incidents. Dr. Harry J.

The German Hospital has offered the I free use of its wards for the sick soldlerr.. ; The management wishes to announce the receipt of a donation of rubber boots and blankets for the nurses who went with the troops t<> Manila. The two battalions of the Sixth Califor nia Regiment of Volunteers are still camped in tents at the Presidio, but they expect to receive orders at any time to ! move into the vacant barracks at the ! post. Testerday blouses were supplied for four companies, and the whole com- : maud was furnished with underclothing and overphirts. The shower of rain yesterday and last ; i night produced no discomforts at Camp i i Richmond. The sandy soil of that dis- j trict rapidly absorbed the moisture. • Court Yerba Buena of the Independent Order of Foresters at its last held meet- i ing went one step further than any other organization. It was announced that at j ! the meeting on Tuesday next the court j i will adopt a resolution not only to pay j ! the dues and assessments of members ; who may enlist for the war, but to create j j a fund to help the families' of, such mem- I bers during the absence of such members I In the service of the United States. The Ohio Society at its meeting last i I night authorized its president to issue a : I call to the 4500 Ohioans in San Francisco I to assemble for the purpose of welcoming i the troops from Ohio when they reach i this city on the way to the Philippines. Private Sharpe of Company E, Seventh California Regiment, was taken to the French Hospital late yesterday afternoon suffering from pneumonia. A most successful patriotic entertain ment in aid of the Red Cross Society was given at Bethany Congregational Church last evening under the auspices of Miss Rebecca Klmball's Sabbath-school class. Thomas Sharkey wants. to do something ] for. the Red Cross fund, and he has vol- ] unteered to box six rounds with Henry j Baker at the Chutes this afternoon. The benefit is under the auspices of the Vereln Oesterreich, and In addition to the regu lar attractions in the zoo and free thea- j ter a special performance with, many j novelties will be given at 5 o'clock. The | grounds will be open from 10 In the morn ing until midnight, and a handsome sum will undoubtedly be realized. It having been decided for sanitary reasons that no mascots in the shape of living creatures can be taken on the Ma nila expeditions, Major Mulford of the First Regiment of Nebraska Volunteers has disposed of the 'regimental eagle named "Nebraska,", presented by "William J. Bryan, by giving It to a Nebraska young man, Frank Kaufman, who will take the bird of freedom to Butte, Mont. I It Is a singular fact that the eagle is to I have. his home in a Butte precinct that gave 237 votes for Bryan and not one for McKlnley. Whether this American eagle will appreciate the , free-silver surround ings of that precinct remains to be seen.

SAYS THEY WERE JUSTIFIED BUT THE MAJORITY OF MEM BERS ARE IN REVOLT. They Strongly Object to the Methods of the Management as Sacri ficing Clean Sport to Money. Never in the history of the Olympic Club has there been such Internal strife as has been created by the discharge of Professor Walter Watson and Professor Hugo Beleau. Members have risen in open revolt against the action of the board of directors, and threaten all sorts of things, while the board, believing as it does that it has acted wisely and in the interest of the organization, vows to re sign if its action is not upheld. The exclusive story of its action as pub lished in The Call last Thursday has created a deal of discussion among mem bers and the large following of the manly art in this city. It would seem that the consensus of opinion is that the directors are making- a grave mistake when they discharge such a recognized exponent of boxing as Professor Watson. Charges of lack of interest on the part of the leader, Howard Taylor, are fre- I quenMy heard, and the directors are crlti i cized for their bad management. It is ! said that if the latter had paid more at ; tention to the welfare of the members I and not to money-making ventures such | as professional fights there would be no need to retrench by discharging Watson and Beleau. Howard Taylor's unpopularity with the members is another reason advanced to account for the present conllict. In years past, it is said, the gymnasium was crowdeil daily with gymnasts, boxers, wrestlers and fencers, because the leaders created interest by frequently holding tournaments. During the past six months members have been compelled to buy their way into the club to see men pum mel each other, while under other di rectors they were able to witness clever exhibitions" without charge. Under the present leader the interest in athletics has subsided, and now, as was pointedly remarked by one dissatisfied member, "the club has been turned into a good bathhouse." With a view to meeting the present crisis President Newhall called a meeting of the board in his office yesterday, but owing to the inclement weather but one put in an appearance, and he was "Billy' Kennedy, a salaried employe. Another notice was sent out by Mr. Newhall for a special meeting, which will be held in the club on Tuesday next. When asked whether the directors would be governed by the wishes of the members, Mr. Newhall said: "We have acted in this matter as we think proper, and if the members are not satisfied with what we have done it is about time we resigned. The reason why Mr. Watson was discharged was because of his slow ness and inattention to business. We had Occasion to remonstrate with him. but he paid no attention to what was said. It is said that DeWitt Van Court was slated for the position of instructor, but it is not so. He has been recommended by mem bers, as also has Professor Bean. The latter hns been strongly objected to, and if we can decide on neither we will send Kast and get the best to be had. Mem !» rs have frequently complained of Mr. Watson, saying that he went about a les son as if he was conferring a favor. He lias gone round to many prominent mem beri who are my friends and asked them to intercede in his behalf. They have done so. but I do not consider them judges of Mr. Watson, as they are not in the habit of going into the gymnasium. The reason why we let Mr. Beleau out is that there is not enough for him to do during the summer months. On June Ist the juvenile class closes for two months. Then again, a great many of the ladies are away in the country, and it was thought that Professor Meihllng was able to at tend to these along with his other duties, thus saving quite n sum to the club. I do not care to say anything about Mr. Tay lor's qualifications as a leader, as he is acting as su^'n under my administration. I do not think the directors will interfere in the matter, as the change Is needed and is the best thing fnr the club." Kneisel Quartet Farewell. The Kneisel Quartet pave its concluding concert at Sherman-Clay Hall last even- Ing to an enthusiastic audience, and for the first time the artists broke their rule and played a.n encore— Tschaikowski's Quartet.

This Irregularity may be mistaken for real, organic heart disease. The symptoms are much the same. There is, however, a vast differ- ence between the two: organic heart dis- | ease' Is often incurable; apparent heart disease Is curable if good digestion be restored. A case In point is quoted from the New Era of Greensburg, Ind. Mrs. Ellen Col- som. Newpoint, Ind., a woman 43 years old, had suffered for four years with dis- tressing stomach trouble. The gases gen- erated by the indigestion pressed on the heart and caused an irregularity of its action. She had much pain in her stomach and heart, and was subject to frequent and severe ' choking spells, which were most severe at night. Doctors were tried in vain; the patient became worse, de- spondent, and feared Impending death - . r** A Case of Heart Failure. . She was much frightened, but noticed that in Intervals in - which' her ' stomach did not annoy her her heart's action be- came normal. -Reasoning -correctly that her. digestion was alone at fault she pro- cured the proper medicine to treat that trouble, and with immediate good results. Her appetite came 'back,; the •• choking spells became, less frequent and finally ceased. Her weight, which had been greatly reduced,' was restored, and she now weighs more than for years. Her blood soon became pure and her cheeks rosy. ■ The case Is of general interest ' because the disease is a very. common one. That others may know the means of cure we give ■ the I name of the medicine used— Dr. Williams' * Pink Pills < for Pale . Peopfo. These pills contain all the elements neces- sary to give ! new life and richness to • the blood and restore shattered nerves. ADVEBTISEMENTS. ___ Grand I Afternoon Concert To=Day. I 2 to 5.
