ONCE MORE IN TROUBLE.
The steam schooner Sequoia played havoc with the steamer
Cleveland's plates and frames yesterday. While trying
to make a landing at Mission-street wharf and at the
same time get out of the way of the ferry steamer Bay
City, the Sequoia crashed into the Cleveland and made
a hole in her side nine feet long.
begun to come out of her slip, While
trying to get out of the way of the ferry
boat the signals to the engine room got
mixed up and the result was a hole nine
feet long in the hull of the Cleveland.
The force of the blow was so great that
w of the Sequoia cut clean through
the Cleveland's heavy iron guard and
drove the iron through the steamers
The accident comes at an unfortunate
time, for the Cleveland has gangs of men
working night and day on her in order
to get her ready for the St. Michael trade.
"When she went on the rocks in Barclay
Sound last year her hull was injured and
temporary repairs were made at Seattle.
Six new frames and a new keelson are
now being put in. and the work is being
completed in a permanent manner, mak
ing the stout old vessel almost as good
as new. With the extra repairs made nec
essary by yesterday's collision it will be
fully 'two weeks before the Cleveland is
ready for sea.
The steamer China arrived from Hong
kong via Yokohama and Honolulu yester
day, a day ahead of schedule time. On the
2<sth inst., at 5:30 p. m., when 2SO miles
from San Francisco, the officers of the
China sighted the transports City of
Peking, City of Sydney and Australia.
From this it would appear as if the troop
ships were going at a uniform speed of
10 knots an hour, as thpy had just been
about twenty-four hours at sea when
spoken by the China. At that rate they
will not reach Honolulu before next
Thursday morniner. The China brought
over 86 cabin passengers and 7 Euv>pean
and 507 Chinese passengers in the steer
age. The vessel went to the quarantine
station to land the Celestials before going
to the dock with her cabin passengers.

The last of the Kotzebue Sound fleet of
sailing vessels has got away for the gold
fields. The fast barkentine Catherine Sud
den left port with one of the most en
thusiastic parties of gold hunters aboard
that has ever left San Francisco. They
had been living on the vessel for nearly
a week before sailing day, so they knew
exactly what to expect when they got
to sea. The accommodations were first
class and the food all that could be de
sired. C. Dickey, who engineered the
Catherine Sudden expedition, went out
on the vessel as far as the Nine Fathom
buoy, and was given three hearty cheers
as tie boarded the tug. The gold hunters
were in the host of sDlrits when he left,
and all of them expect to come back with
wealth to spare. Among those who sailed

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, MAT 28, 1898.
SHE REMEMBERED THE POOR.
The Late Mrs. Frank M. Plxleu, Whose Heart and Hand Were
' Ever Open to the Needy.
THIS is the last photograph of Mrs. Frank M. Pixley, widow of the late editor
Df the Arjonaut who died suddenly of heart disease at her summer home
In Corte Madera on Thursday night. The news of her demise was received
with regret by all who knew her. as she was beloved by every one for
her kindness of heart and charitable disposition.
Although a sufferer from an affection of the heart she was otherwise enjoy
ing the best of health. On retiring she made no complaint, and the suddenness
of her taking off surprised and grieved every one. Dr. fa. S. Kahn had for some
time past treated her for the malady, and shortly after her death he was In
formed and was profoundly shocked.
Mrs Pixley's birthplace was Philadelphia, and she entered this world In 1833.
She was the only child of Captain and Mrs. John L. Van Reynegom, one of
the. Quaker City; s oldest families. She met her future husband In this city in
1553 and despite parental objection was married. While her husband was en
gaged in his chosen field during those stirring times Mrs. Pixley rarely went out
side her own circle. Her deeds of kindness and charity made tier known through
out the city. She was deeply engaged in church work and was a benefactor of
the Episcopal Church of St. Mary the Virgin.
Before her husband's death she adopted Herbert Harrington Weller, the 2
year-old son of Herbert B. and Fannie M. Weiler. The latter had been the
adopted daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pixley.
A Committee of One

SULLIVAN FORCES CLAIM A
The Real Contest Will Come To-Day
When the Report is Brought
Before the State Or
A committee consisting of one hun-<
dred Democrats has been selected to
take charge of the affairs of the local
The work of selecting the committee
was completed last evening by the nire
members of the State Central Commit

was first projosed to decline to recog
nize the claims of both the Harney and
Sullivan factions and to appoint a new
County Committee, to consist of five
Democrats from each of the Assembly
districts. With a slight modification
this plan has been adhered to, but in
stead of giving each of the Assembly
districts equal representation it was
decided to select the members of the
new committee at large, regardless of
territorial boundaries. This was done,
and as the friends of the Sullivan fac
tion had a majority of one in the Bub
committee the majority of their ap
pointees are anti-Harneyites. This, as
a matter of course, is not satisfactory
to the followers of Governor Budd, and
as a consequence there is trouble brew
The real contest for the control of the
Democracy of San Francisco will be
made in the State Central Committee
when it meets to-day. The Committee
of One Hundred is not satisfactory to
the Budd faction, a fact that will lead
to an attempt to nullify the acts of the
Committee of Nine. This attempt will
take the form of an amendment to the
report of the subcommittee. The
amendment will be to the effect that
the Committee of One Hundred be in
structed to conduct a primary election
for the purpose of selecting the mem
bers of a new county committee which
is to have the direction and control of
the affairs of the local Democracy.
Should such an amendment be adopt
ed the Committee of One Hundred
would then be robbed of any power or
authority other than that of conduct
ing the primary. This being accom
plished it would then cease to exist.
Instead of being in itself the county
committee, as it was intended to be, it
would be only the instrument through
which the county committee is to be
brought into life.
This plan Is a bold one and is only
rendered feasible by the fact of the
supposed power of Governor Budd in
the Central Committee. If it be true
that he has control of the State organi
zation then it will be possible for him
to carry the scheme through and thus
rob his opponents of their apparent vic
tory. The Harney Democrats have
practical control of the party organiza
tion in the city and should a primary
for the election of a new county com
mittee be ordered they would no doubt
be able to secure the election of a ma
jority of their candidates. With such
a situation in prospect to-day's meet
ing of the State Central Committee
should not be devoid of interest.
FAMOUS BEAR KILLED
ON THE COTTONWOOD.
"Old Club Foot" Fights a Desperate
Battle Against Three Well-
BAKERSFIELD, Cal., May 26.— The
gTeat, fat, powerful carcass of "Old
Clubfoot," the famous grizzly known to
all old California hunters and prospectors
on this coast, arrived In Bakarsuald thi*
afternoon. She was killed last Monday
on the head of Cottonwood Creek, near
the southern boundary of Kern County.
It required a two days' battle of three
men with long-range Winchesters to
bring down the monster, besides the as
sistance of a number of dogs. These men
had been hot on the trail of "Clubfoot"
more than a week. Last Sunday morning
two of them came in sight of her, and the
battle opened at a distance of 600 yards,
and ranged from that down to a few
yards. It was a most desperate and
thrilling encounter. Finally the hunters'
ammunition gave out. Late in the even
ing they called off their dogs and went to
camp. Early next morning they returned,
and with the aid of the dogs "Old Club
foot" was again found. The hunters
opened tire nn her, and the battle raged
all day before the monster gave up the
ghost." She weighed 11M pounds. Sh.' W9M

NAPA, May 25. — A distressing accident,
which will probably result fatally, oc
curred this afternoon on the county road,
three miles from here, near Carneros
Creek. Robert Headly, a prominent far
mer, while driving his mowing machine
from one field to another along the road,
stopped to talk with a neighbor. The
team suddenly became frightened and
commenced to run. Mr. Headly grabbed
the horses by the bits and hung on while
they dragged him along. He finally had
to let go, and the mowing machine passed
over his body. Mr. Brown, with whom he
had been talking, picked up the uncon
scious man and carried him to his resi
dence, where he still remains unconscious
up to a late hour to-night. Drs. Haun
and Kahn of Napa were summoned. The

would never for a moment talk with
the press men about such a subject,

YOUNG AT SIXTY.
Serene comfort and happiness in ad-
vanced years are realized by compara-
tively few women.
Their hard lives, their liability to se- j
rious troubles on account of their pecu-
liar organism and their profound igno-
rance concerning' themselves, all com-
bine to shorten the period of usefulness
and fill their later years with suffering 1 .
Mrs. Pinkham has done much to make
women strong. She has given advice
to many that has shown them how to
guard against disease and retain vigor-
ous health in old age. From every cor-
ner of the earth there is constantly com-
ing the most convinciug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound in overcoming female ills. Here
is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Orms, of 220
Homer St. , Johnstown, Pa., •which is
earnest and. straight to the point :
" Deab mW Pi.vkham: — I feel it my
duty to tell all suffering women that I
think your remedies are wonderful. I
had trouble with my head, diz y spells
and hot flashes. Feet and hands were
cold, was very nervous, could not sleep
well, had kidney trouble, pain in
ovaries and congestion of the womb.
Since taking your remedies I am better
every way My head trouble is all
gone, have no pain in ovaries, and am
cured of womb trouble, I can eat and
sleep well and am gaining in flesh. I
consider your medicine the best to be
had for female troubles."
The present Mrs. Pinkham* experi-
ence in treating- female ills is un paral-
lelled, for years she worked side by
side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and
for sometime past has had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year.
