LAUNCH OF THE
Brilliant Event at Mare
SUCCESSFUL IN EVERY WAY
MILITARY AIR LENT TO THE
Little Heather Baxter Does the
Christening — Gunboat York
town Is Placed in
Special Dispatch to The Call.
VALLEJO, Nov. 17.— The tug Paw
tucket, intended for use at Port Or
chard naval i itlon, was '• unched at
Mare Island this afternoon in the pres
ence of many people, including all the
workmen of the yard and hundreds of
visitors from Vallejo. A military air
■was lent to the proceedings by the
presence of a battalion of marines and
sailors from the barracks and war yes-
Beis under the c mmand of Lieutenant
Commander C. A. Adams.
The hour set for the launching was
8 o'clock, and at that time Commodore
J. C. Watson, commandant of the yard;
Commodore Albert Kautz, commanding
the Pacific squadron, and a number of
other naval officers and the ladies of
their fo lilies stood on a platform sur
rounding little Heather Baxter, the s
year-old daughter of Naval Construc
tor Baxter, who had been selected to
christen the tug.
The tug had been wedged up early in
the afternoon and was only held by a
few shores on the sides and the dog
Bhores on the cradle supporting the
vessel. Everything except the latter
■was cleared away and at 3 o'clock Con
structor Baxt - cut a wire supporting
a heavy weigl.t which knocked the dog
shores away and the tug began to glide
toward the water. At that moment
the dainty sponsor cried in a clear
voice, "I name thee Pawtucket," and
swung the btttle of wine against the
steel prow with a crash that shattered
The tug gathered momentum as she
sped down the ways and dipping easily
as she entered the water floated grace
fully into the stream. She was greeted
with a deafening salute of steam
whistles and cheers which drowned the
sound of the two naval bands playing
"The Star-Spangled Banner," which
met the raising of the tug's flags as
she struck the water. The launch was
a complete success in every way and

THE PLUNDER RECOVERED
ONE OF THE THIEVES IN THE
TANKS AT THE CITY HALL.
Worked With the Aid of a Flashily
Dressed Woman, for Whom
the Police Are Now
The police have In custory a man who
they say is one of the cleverest shop
lifters that ever operated in this city.
Accompanied by another individual and
by a flashily dressed young woman the
trio, it is claimed, have systematically
robbed a number of wholesale houses,
their booty amounting to several thou
sand dollars. Their latest victims are
Murphy, Grant & Co.. wholesale dry
goods dealers at Bush and Sansome
A few days ago the clever trio entered
the store and after representing that they
were engaged in business in the interior,
announced that they were anxious to pur
chase a complete stock of silk goods. Onfe
of the clerks took them downstairs to the
silk department and showed them the
display. The woman temporarily left her
male companions and pretended to be ex
amining anoLher line of goods. A short
time afterward the trio left the store, af
ter apologizing to the clerk for causing
htm so much trouble, but promising to
return the following day and purchase
what they needed. A few minutes after
they had left one of the employes of the
firm discovered a number of pairs of
gloves which had been tossed behind a
barrel and suspecting something wrong
he informed one of the proprietors An
investigation was at once begun with the
result that it was found that the trio had
stolen about $3(W worth of silk floods. The
supposition is that the woman secreted
the stuff in her clothing unknown to the
employes. After having taken the gloves
it is believed she concluded that they
were not worth getting away with and
threw them aside. . .
The police were immediately notified ol
the robbery and Detective Tom Ryan was
detailed to make an Investigation, les
terday he arrested a dapper young man
named Collins and locked him up in the
tanks. He has been positively identified
as being one of the men who accompanied
the woman to the store. After being put
through the "sweating" process the pris
oner made a complete confession. He gave
the names of the woman und the other ac
complice and told where they had sold the
stolen property. Subsequently Ryan re
covered a portion of the stuff. He is- con
fident that he will be able to arrest the
woman to-day and probably the man. The
woman, it is said, is a well-known Eastern
operator, having served a term in the
penitentiary in New York for shoplifting.

GOES TO CONGRESS SPRINGS
Speeches Made by Professors, Alumni
and Gridiron Heroes to a
Great Throng in the
Special Dispatch to The Call.
STANFORD. UNIVERSITY, Nov. 17.
—The enthusiasm of students, which
has been daily increasing in intensity
as the big game approaches, reached
its culmination to-night in the biggest
football rally in the history of Stan
ford. If the fc >ling that the college ia
behind it to a man will do as much as
is supposed Stanford Varsity will ac-
complish wonders during its stay at
Congress Springs, where it goes to
morrow morning for its polishing
touches and its trick plays.
Long before the time for the rally
the chapel was filled compactly, the
crowd overflowing to the pavement
and quadrangle beyond. A section of
rioters under trained leaders and cap
tains served as a nucleus of the en
thusiasm, which was not confined alone
to male students. Co-eds, too, were af
fected by its irresistible wave and gave
vent to their feelings by
waving handkerchiefs and Stanford
President Schwartz of the Associated
Students presided. Speeches w ;re made
by Professors Branner and Fetter,
Coach Cross, Captain Fisher, football
heroes and prominent students and
alumni. Most of the speakers believed
the game would hs the closest and
hardest-fought contest seen on a grid
iron in years and insisted on the neces
sity lor untiring effor* at the springs.
After the exercises long lines of stu
dents paraded inside the quad and
finally ended on the football field,
where a bonfire was lighted. Football
songs were sung to popular airs, played
by the college band.
The men that Captain Fisher will
take to the training quarters, as an
nounced by Coach Cross to-ni^ht, are:
Quarters Murphy, Beckley, Erb
backs, Plate, Ciinton, Hill, Dole Dag

At tho springs Coach Cross will de
vote his energies to developing line
men who are unseasoned and ignorant
of the finer points of the same. At
present Coach Cross believes Stanford's
center trio inferior to that of Berkeley
If the line can Xf developed Stanford's
chances will be vastly improved. The

Men Who Will Struggle
TOWNSEND FOR FULLBACK
REPLACES McBRIDE, WHO IS
Captain Chamberlain Will Attend
to All the Punting and Kick
ing During the
Special Dispatch to The Call.
NEW HAVE-*, Conn., Nov. 17.— Late
to-night it was learned that the definite
picking of the Yale football eleven has
been made. There were only three po
sitions about which there was any
doubt at all, the two halfbacks and
that of fullback. For the latter place
Mcßride has been sent to New York
to be treated by a specialist, as his
ankle is getting worse. In his place
Townsend will doubtless ko in. Such
is the plan to-night. In punting and
all kicking Captain Chamberlain will,
however, act. For halfbacks Dudley
and Durston are picked out, Ely for
quarter-back, with Eddy and Hubbell
for ends, Chamberlain and Stillman for
tackles, Brown and Marshall for guards
and Cutten at center. Should Dudley
give out Corwin is the first substitute.
ITHACA, N. V., Nov. 17.— 1*ne com
petition for places on Cornell's varsity
team, which will line up against Penn
sylvania, will be very close and the
work of the candidates who are trying
for positions in and behind the line is
the best seen at Percy Field this year.
For fullback Starbuck, who was in the
Cornell-Princeton game, and Perkins,
the heavy fullback of last year's team,
are keeping up the struggle for the
place. To-day Perkins was favored by
the fact that hie opponent was not
able to work and he was kept in the
position during the hour's practice.
Will and Windsor are tryinc for right
halfback. Cross replaced Giimshaw at
right end to-day. Caldwell, it is be
lieved, will be put at center by the
end of the week and Wyvill is already
buoked to play at left tackle. It Is
doubtful if Alexander will be out in
time for the game. Quarter-back
Young's position was filled by ; ..ort of
the scrub eleven.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 17.— 1n the
absence of Coach Woodruff Captain
Outland took charge of the University
of Pennsylvania football team to-day.
All the men were out except Overfield
and McMahon. Overfield is still con
fined to his bed with an attack of the
grip and it is possible that he may not
be able to ' play again this season
Should this be the case McCloskey will
probably take his place in the Cornell
game on Thanksgiving day and Smith
may be given a chance at fullback.
McMahnn's ankle, which he wrenched
yesterday, is causing much pain, and if
he should be unable to take part in
the big game Hodge will probably play
left end. The men who are more or
less ailing are Ruegenberg, Garnett
Gardiner, Coombs, Hedges and Mc-
CHOYNSKI AND RUHLIN
NEW YORK. Nov. 17. -Joe Choynski

Ever since they fought in Philadelphia

advantage, the men have been in great
demand all over the country for a return
match. Billy Madden has received an
offer of 60 per cent from the Toledo Club
but Ruhlln's manager says he would
rather have the match come off in New
York. Tom O'Rourke would like to have
the bout take place at hie club and he
will offer a purse for the contest.

MADEBA'S CELEBRATED CASE
Merrill Convicted of Assault With
a Deadly Weapon.
MADERA, Cal., Nov. 17.— 1n the Su
perior Court this evening William Merrill
was convicted of an assault with a deadly
weapon, the jury being out an hour and
a half. Merrill was charged with assault
with intent to commit murder. On the
30th of last Jii!y Merrill and his brother
in-law, A. B. Evans, engaged in a quarrel
as the result of a family feud of some
three years' standing, Merrill firing sev
eral shots at Evans while the latter was
sitting in a wagon, none of them taking
Evans then proceeded to his home, a
half mile distant, procured a Winchester
rifle and returned to the Merrill residence
to fulfill a threat to take Merrill's life.
Merrill, who had concealed himself in his
barn, saw Evans approaching with the
gun in his hand, tired through a crack in
tlu side of the barn, the ball entering
Evans' abdomen just below the navel, re
sulting In his death two days later.
The case was one of the most sensa
tional that has occurred in this county
since its organization. Special counsel In
the person of District Attorney-elect R.
R. Fowler was employed to assist Dis
trict Attorney Larew, while J. M. Mc-
Swain of Mverced, for the defendant, was
assisted by K. L. Hargrove of this city.
The defendant was not tried for the kill
ing, but for the shooting at Evans while
the latter was unarmed. The jury re
duced the charge, which lightened the
penalty from fourteen to two years. The
case will be appealed.
TRINITY COUNTY LAND DEAL.
Important Purchase by a New York
REDDING, Nov. 17.-A New York syn

purchased 18,000 acres of land in Trinity
County from the Merritt estate of Oak
land. The first payment was made on
the 15th inst., the purchase price being
There is a grea f . deal more In this trans
fer than is apparent on the surface. The
late W. P. Merritt and a man named
Fenton original^ bought the land for
grazing' purposes, and when a survey of
the county line i;as being made, a de
posit of copper bearing ore 1200 feet long
by 70 feet wide was discovered on the
property. Tests of the ore have returned
values of from ;) to IS per cent copper, $5
to $10 gold and $3 to 510 silver. This was
the Inducement which impelled the New
York people to buy.
Development of the copper mine will be
begun at once by putting to work a large
force of men. The acreage lies in the
southwestern portion of Trinity County
In the Horseshoe Bend ofEel River,
twenty-five miles from the line of the

WITH CARBOLIC ACID
SUICIDE OF MRS. CELIA BODE
Her First Husband Killed Himself
and Her Second Matrimonial Ven
ture Proved Most Unhappy.
Mrs. Cella Bode swallowed a dose of
carbolic add in the lodging house, 1146
Folsom street, yesterday morning, and
died shortly after in the Receiving Hos
pital. The body was removed to the
Morgues Mrs. Bode's first husband was
a mining man, who committed suicide in
Montana by shooting himself while de
spondent over his failures in mining deals.
She married Bode soon after, but the
couple did not get along well together,
and of late she had been living with her
sister on Zoe street.
About a week ago she left her sister's
house and went to live at the lodging
house on Folsom street where Mrs. O'Con
nor, an old friend, had a room. She
drank considerable liquor and seemed
tired of life. She told Mrs. O'Connor that
she would rather kill herself than go
tack to live at her sister's house, and
when she learned yesterday morning that
her sister had discovered her whereabouts
she went into Mrs. O'Connor's room and
swallowed the contents of a bottle of
carbolic acid that Mrs. O'Connor had for
medicinal purposes. Then she ran down
stairs to a saloon under the lodging house
and fell on the floor. The ambulance
was summon«d and she was taken to the
There were marks on her face and
hands which Dr. Weil thought had been
c-aused by rough usage, but Mrs. O'Connor
declared she had sustained them in fall
ing after she had swallowed the poison.
Her appearance qhowed that she had
been on a debaucri. She was about 32
years of age.
J. Vietheer, a brother-in-law of Mrs.
Bode, visited the Morgue last evening
and identified the remains. He stated
that the husband of the woman is still
living, but his whereabouts is not known.
Her first husband committed suicide some
time ago, and shortly afterward the
woman married Mr. Bode. The couple
parted after being married a few
months. Mr. Bode went north on a
whaling cruise, and the last heard of him
be was in Europe.

Another Chapter in the Life of the
Rev. Donald M. Ross, Minister.
Donald M. Ross, the disgraced Presby

again. Yesterday morning George W.
Willis. 2 Pearl street, obtained a search
warrant in Juflge Conlan's court ror the
recovery of two valuable books on mag
netism which Ross borrowed from him

Professor Jordan's Lecture.
Professor David Starr Jordan delivered
the last of a series of three lectures be
fore the Unity Club last night. His sub
jtct was "The Struggle Against Drink."
He spoke of the extraordinary efforts
made to exterminate the pernicious drink
liti.it. "Individual effort," he said, "ac
complishes a great deal in that direction.
Temperance lectures -had only a tempo
rary effect, as they appeal to the feelings,
which are liable to reaction. An appeal
to the better side of an individual, his
manhood, was effectual. The Salvation
Army was doing a great deal in the strug
gle against drink by giving the drinking
man something to do, and so saving him
from remorse, which tended to drive him
back to his evil ways. High license and
the regulation of the sale of liquor alao
had their good points. The scientific tem
pjerance as advocated by the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union was not as
effective as it might be."

"It was the practical result of the Ex
position of Social Economy, held in con
nection with the Paris Exposition of 1889.
Statistics, pamphlets and full details of
experiments in problems of social inter
est were then available, and the informa
tion was so valuable and interesting that
the Musee Social was formed to continue
the work thus begun. That institution
took over all the exhibits and established
a library, open to all, and it has received
many valuable additions since. Neither
politics nor religion enters into the con
sirifrations of the society. Consideration
is given to all matters of common inter
est, as the benefits of co-operation, the
extension of a system of co-operative
credit, by which money Is lont to mem

agricultural banks, and similar matters.

some of the largest landholders in France.

his fortune to the foundation of the
Musee. Besides paying its running ex
penses, he has presented it with a piece
of property on the Rue Las Cases worth

succeeded in smuggling several thousand
cigars on the United States transport
steamer Newport, on her arrival here
from Honolulu two months ago. had been
obliged to pay the duty on his fake story.
Surveyor Spear said yesterday that cus
toms officials are not required to go on
board United States war vessels or trans
ports, but that his men, as a precaution,
searched Captain Elaine's baggage as
well as that of the others officers on the
Newport, and failed to discover any
smuggled good*. He was of the opinion
that Captain Blame paid the duty in
Washington rather than acknowlege thai
