Frank Wigfall's Cow
ardly Deed.
Prepares to Finish His Work When
He Is Disarmed — His Victim
May Lose a Limb — No Cause
Is Assigned.
A dastardly, unprovoked attempt nt :
cold-blooded murder occurred at the Pre
afternoon, when I'rlwit^
Wigfall, Company H, Twenty
delfberately shot fuid j
■<1 Private Wesley Klby of the
regiment. The shooting was un
warranted and Kiby had no warning: of
ill's murderous Intentions until he j

loaded his rifle
and was preparing to shoot again, when '
Private Clarke wrested the weapon fmm
hfm and handed it to Corporal Wallace.
.'I made no attempt to resist arrest,
and while he was being taken to the
Ihouse by several soldiers others
I •Ir bleeding comrade up and
carried him to the post hospital.
The shooting occurred at C o'clock, while
the men of Company H were in their
quarters preparing for evening roll call.
Wigfall was sitting upon his cot and .
'Kiby was across the room from him
blacking- his shoes. .- . ■■::!>• Wigfall took '
his rifle from it? rack upon the wall. This !
did not attract any one's attention, for it '
is a common thing for the soldiers to han- ]
dle their arms. One of the other men in
the room saw him slip a cartridge into the
magazine of the ritle. and before the sol
dier realized what he was doing he saw
him tak.^ deliberate :iim at Kiby. An in
stant later "iVipfall tired and Kiby with |
a yell of pain dropped to the floor. Th- i
suddenness if the cowardly dee I so took
the men by surprise that for a moment '
they were unable to realize what had hap
pened, hut when they saw Wigfall again |
reload his rifle and prepare to take a sec
ond shot Private Clarke sprang- upon him.
No one seems to know what caused
Wig-fall to do such a cowardly deed. i
Th^r^ was no bad blood between Kiby and
Wigfall that any of the men know of. I
They are both in the same company and j
have their quarters in the same building.
Some of the Idlers of the company de- j
clare that Wigfall had been drinking, but j
that he was not sufficiently intoxicated '
not to have known what he was doing.
He was immediately taken to the guard
house, where he was placed in close con
finement and no one was allowed to see
him. j
Major Mosoley. the surgeon of th» post, :
examined Kiby's wound. The bull' en- i
tered the right leg a few inches below th^>
knee and passed entirely through the [
bone. Kiby was so affected by the shock
and pain that the major refrained from
making a thorough examination until to
day. The knee cap is affected, and from
the examination made it looks as if it was
so badly shattered as to necessitate am- j
putation of th" leg. Morphine was admin- I
istered to Kiby to relieve his pain and at
a late hour last night he was resting gui- j
etly. Cnlonel Freeman will make an of
ficial investigation of the affair to-day.
Rev. F?thnr T. Canher of St." Francis
Church preached an able sermon on the
life of St. John the Baptist yesterday
mornlnp at the 11 o'clock mass. Besides
being- the Sunday within the octave of the
feast of the Saint, it marked the twenty
plxth anniversary of the well-known pas
tor's ordination. The sacred edifice was
crowded as usual. Father Caraher took
for his text: "John is his name: Luke
The musical programme was a feature
of the services. Following are a few ex
cerpts from his Interesting address:
The* name of John signifies one favored by
(">•<•;. Our saint was called John because he
was exceedingly favored and privileged by
God. Our I>ird sunirr.iirir.es the Braces and
privileges of Ft. John when he says: "Amen,
I pay to you. there hath not risen among men
that are horn of women a greater than John
the Baptist."
Our saint is also called the Baptist for the
reason that he preached the baptism of pen
ance and bantized our Lord and many of the
Jews In the Jordan. This baptism of St. John
was not the same as our sacrament of bap
tism, but was only an external rite or ablu
tion that signified by its effects upon the body
the Interior cleansing of the soul by penance.
On the feast of Ft. John's nativity the church
proposes a shining virtue for our meditation,
but I will only dwell upon his virtue, penance
and mortification. The Baptist had not only
preached mortification, but also practiced It
in an eminent decree. In his youth he forsook
the world and the comforts of home and fled
into the deserts of Judea, where he led a
most austere and penetentlal life.
• The speaker then went on to describe
St. John's mode of living and food and
drink he contended with while carrying
on his penance.
The Baptist remained In the desert until his
"thirtieth year and then left his place of re
tirement to baptize and preach penance. The
place where St. John was born is situated
about six miles to the west of Jerusalem. It
belongs to the Franciscan fathers, who have
there an Imposing church and monastery. It
was my treat privilege to celebrate mass in
the crypt of the church where St. John was
born and to administer holy communion to a
number who assisted at the mass. About eight
miles west of the place of his birth is the
- desert where he spent the greater port of his I
life and where he lived upon locusts and wild
If we aspire to the happiness of St. John
the Bantlst we must practice in some degree
at leapt his mortification in food and clothing
Never yet did a saint reach heaven that was
. not Kiven to penance and self-denial. From
the days of John the Baptist until now the
kingdom of heaven suffered violence and the
violence beareth it away.
"If Christ Should Come to San Fran
cisco" was the subject of an Interesting
Bermon by Dr. Charles Edward Locks of
the Central Methodist Church last even
ing In Metropolitan Temple. He said In
We are rapidly coming to be a nation of
cities. In the United States there are three
cities with over 1,000,000 Inhabitants; six cities
over 500,000: twelve cities over 300 000 and
thirty-two cities over 100,000; 400 cities with a
population between r.0,000 and 15,000; 360 cities
with over 10,000. and more than 700 cities of
5000 inhabitants. The great problems and pos
sibilities of our nation, therefore, are to a
large extent connected with the cities.

severely would he rebuke all forms of vice

The congregation was on the gui vivo,
both at the morning and evening 1 service,
expecting Dr. Locke would make the an
nouncement of his contemplated change,
but they were disappointed, as he did not
allude to the subject The evening serv
ice at the temple will be discontinued

At the 11 o'clock mass yesterday morn
ing- Rev. Father Wynian of St. Mary's
(Paullst) Church delivered an Interesting
discourse on one of St. Paul's epistles to
Timothy. In part, he said:
"For 1 know whom 1 have believed, and I j
am certain that he is able to keep that which |
] have committed to him until that day."
These words express the intt-nsity of St.
Paul's faith and hope. They were written
during his last Imprisonment; the hand that
penned them was fettered !>y chains and they
were addressed to his beloved disciple and co
worker, St. Timothy, of whom ho speaks most
t' nderly in the snme epistle, and whom he
declares he remembers daily in his prayers.
Th-' faith set forth in these words Is not,
however, peculiar and personal to Ht. Paul
himself, but belongs essentially to all Chris
tians. It might he objected that one who had
experienced ouch a miraculous conversion,
wrought such miracles and had converted such
multitudes by his preaching could thus speak
for himself alone. Bui whatever knowledge
arM grace was grlven to St. Paul belongs to the
church and his personal experiences is one of
hfr strongest credentials. His faith \v;i.~ as

Not Do."
preacher that opinion Is the attitude of intel
lect toward divine truth and conviction is the
attitude of the heart to the revealed modern
law. Such, however, was not the faith exer
cised by St. Paul and is not what the church
requires of her children As a river cannot
rife above its source, neither can hope nor
charity be greater than faith. Ajtain strong
conviction of the truth of the faith cannot be
called prejudice which Is a state of mind
formed without consideration or reason and is
rather an expression of inclination.
Finally, faith does not narrow but enlarges
our scope of knowledge. It is a Rift, for it
is a cir't from the author of reason himself,

Rev. W. K. Pugan of Stewart Me
morial T'niterl Freshyterian Church last
evening delivered a lively talk on "Spir
itualism" as a prelude to his sermon. He
An Interest h.ie been aroused In our midst
on spiritualism through a sermon preached by
Pr. Moreland, and many comments by minis
ters of our city have been made. Dr. More
land holtls that we have th»- power of com
municating with evil spirits but not with good
ones. That Idea is absurd, as It srivea the
devil more power with men than It allows God ■
to have. Other ministers argue again* t it be
cause they do not jxiss^ss the power, but that
is the silly argument of Infidelity against
Christianity and carries no weight. Another
Fays good spirit? would not want to come
back even to leave their joys behind for a few
minutes. That argument attributes to good
spirits the vicious principle of selfishness and
must droD out of Ficht; besides, heaven is
not to be looked upon bo much as a place as
a condition— yes, a condition which a good
spirit could carry in Its heart to the onds
of the universe. These arguments betray a
weakness of lotlc and confusion of ethics. I
think the argument against spiritualism Is
this: There Is no netd for such a communi
cation between this and the spirit world, and
Q d does not maintain useless things. In the
parable of Lazarus and the sick man there
was no need for one to rise from the dead to
teach Moses and the prophets wore enough.
When we have the life of Christ and the work
of God that tolls us all about the way of sal
vation, why morbidly pry into things God has
concealed? When every blade of grass and
every l^a-f of every tree yea, when the face
of all nature is trembling with th>> truth of
God— why plunge to the dark bottom of the
tomb for messages fritn tho spirit world?
Whatsoever truth there is in connection with
spiritualism is so vague and uncertain that
we are not warranted in following it, espe
cially when we have so mu<-h revelation in
the providence of <; o d. Why grope through
the dark tombs with a tallow can.llo when we
can walk the beautiful valleys of tnit' un.ler
the full blaze of the son of righto. .nsness?
I do not know whether these tiu-diumß can
communicate with the spirit world or not,
but let us not condemn them ty a process of
false logic and confused Ideas, but point them
to Christ, the light of both worlds.

THEODORE G. COCKRILL, Chief of Police In the early '70's and at one
time a prominent politician of this city, died yesterday morning at his
home, 1911 Broderick street. He was close upon the completion of his six
ty-fourth year, lacking but one month of that life mark.
About two weeks ago Mr. Cockrill was stricken with paralysis, and since
that time his dissolution was expected momentarily. Hemorrhage of the brain
hastened his end, which came In the early hours of Sunday morning. The
deceased was a pioneer settler in California. In 1552 he crossed the plains,
devoting the first few years of his California life to prospecting and farming!
Latterly he came to San Francisco and engaged in the liquor business on a
large scale.
In 1872 he was elected by popular vote— as was then the custom— to the of
fice of thief of Police. His political opponent was ex-Chief Crowley, who
succeeded him in the following year. Cockrill proved a potent police director,
and his administration was one of the best experienced In the city. After the
expiration of his term of office Cockrill returned to business, but met with re
verses. After the dissolution of his firm he was connected with Van Bergen &

that the woman was arrested Friday
night her case has not been disposed of

officials intend to have the case called and
will endeavor to have it dismissed. They

permanently injuring herself unless she
is liberated from prison.

of her cellmates that she intended to
commit suicide by hanging herself with
a strip of blanket. The woman to whom

The second lecture in a course on the
four gospels was delivered last night at
the First Baptist Church by the pastor,
Rev. E. A. Woods, D.D. In part he spoke
as follows:
Last Sunday evening I spoke of Matthew
the first gospel as written by a Hebrew, In the
language spoken by them, and that its pur
pose was to show that Jesus Christ was the
Messiah of the Old Testament. It is the gos
pel of fulfillment. Mark, the author of the
serond gospel, was not one of the twelve dis
ciples, but was one of IVter's converts, and
of him we know but little. He was the
nephew of Barnabas, and concerning him Paul
and Parnabas had a disagreement which re
sulted in their separation. Mark seenifi to have
been Peter's companion for many years, and
it is generally supposed that Mark wrote this
gospel at Peter's dictation, so that it is really
Peters gospel. It was written in Greek, and
seems to have been Intended specially for the
Romans. It bears the stamp of Peter's direct
impetuous temperament. In it many facts
about Peter are modestly omitted, while the

story of his denial of Christ is told without
excuse or mitigation. As the Romans knew
little of the Old Testament, very little refer
ence Is made to the Hebrew worship of the
The favorite word with the Romans was
"power." They cared little as to the genealogy
or parentage of Jesus. Their great question
was: "Has he power and what has he done?"
Mark's Kospel is a biography of Christ In an
swer to the Roman question. Its Keynote is
"divine power." Mark presents our Lord to
us as the son of Qod with power, th' Lord
and Master of men. the mighty conqueror, the
destroyer of evil, the founder of an everlast
ing kingdom. It is a pospel of conflict and
of victory. The story of Christ's life Is graphic
and vivid, and In it we see the presence and
all mastering power of the Son of God.
As a prelude to this address Dr. Woods
spoke of Confucianism as the state reli
gion of China.

the Movement.

Rt. Rev. Bishop William H. Moreland
preached an interesting pennon on
"Christian Science" at yesterday morn
ing's services in St. Luke's Church. While
ri ■c-otj7iizin£ "the beautiful principles" on
which the movement ia founded. Dr.
Mnreland pointed out the errors which
have crept into it, and exhorted his hear-
era to remain steadfast in their faith to
the old church, which has stood for ages,
and not to he inveigled into a new sys
tem, which was replete with fallacies. Dr.
Mor< land began his sermon by quoting
from the Bible. "The Lord has created
medicines out of the earth, and he that is
wisi-' will not abhor them."
"The Lord has created plants, vegeta
bles and herbs," said Dr. Moreland, "and
has endowed thorn with certain curative
properties, and men skilled in chemistry
combine and apply them to the ills and
sufferings of humanity. We should put
our trust in God's mercy through sickness
and ill health, but we should not neglect
the material means he has placed at our
disposal for the recovery of health.
"One of the mistakes "of Christian Sci
ence is that its neglect of the means cre
ated by an all-wise Providence is not a
mark of faith, but rather a mark of pre
sumption and folly. We pray God to give
us our daily bread, but we do not sit idly
by until the fond is thrust in at our door.
Human effort should always go with the
power of the Almighty. "God and man
sin mid always work together.
"When the child is ill we pray God for
its restoration, and glorify Christ by the
true prayer of faith, but we do not reject
all medicine. We fchould not expect the
child to be cured by a miracle.
"The Christian Science way is not the
Christian way. . It Is a part of faith to
employ the skill of a physician and the
nurse and medicine, and in doing so we
are not guilty of any lack of faith or true
religion. It is an awful presumption for
the creature to say to God, 'You must
cure my child.' The scripture itself teach
es us to make use of the material means
and the Ix)rd himself used loaves and
fishes to feed the multitude, and the nat
ural elements, bread and wine, are util
ized In conveying his risen life to man
kind. God has dwelt providentially with
us in giving to us human agencies to ac
complish his will. He can perform mira
cles, but we should not expect miracles
when we discard ordinary means.
"I do not wish to say one harsh or un
kind word against Christian Science. I
have, a sympathetic recognition for the
truth it contains, but I cannot close my
eyes to the dangers and errors accom
panying it. There are good things in
Christian Science. Tt has undoubtedly
made cures, and on many occasions peo
ple have escaped suffering under its in
fluence, and it has restored the sense of
God to many.
"In these days, when people are ob
sorbed in making money and the mind is
almost irresistibly drawn to materialism,
there have been many efforts in opposi
tion. The materialist says there is no
spirit, but all is matter. The Christian
Scientist says there is no such thing as
matter, all is spirit. These, efforts em
phasize the spiritual realities of lite, but
they are not well balanced and cannot
last. They eventuall^ipse strength and
are split into fragmeiW. Christian Science
teaches that disorders of the body spring
out of disorders of the soul. This prin
ciple is earnestly carried out in Christian
Science, which occupies the mind with
kindness, piety and love, and only with
these can you be a well man.
"I would like to dwell on this side, but
there is another. The cures done by
Christian Science have been paralleled by
many systems of metaphysical healing.
They have been produced by the shrines
of the Roman Catholics, the Indian med
icine men, the soothsayers of the East,
the Hindoo fakirs and by all creeds and
nationalities, therefore the good of Chris
tian Science is not original with itself
As a religion, it has not Dorrowed enough
of the Christian faith to keep it alive.
"The other side tells of the harm it has
done and the dangers accompanying it
The denial of the personality of God Is a
fatal error and neutralizes all the truths
It teaches. We have been taught that God
is more than man; he is a being divine
and exalted, and the impersonal principle
of Christian Science disappoints our af
fections and robs us of our father. Chris
tian Science not only contradicts the
Christian doctrine of the Incarnation, but
denies that God is a person.
"Again, Christian Science fails to notice
the providential purpose of pain in the
world, which causes the sufferer to reign
triumphant in the strength of Jesus cru
cified. Christian Science often Inspires in
its converts an unholy sense of superior
ity, which Is assumed in the house and
among friends. Aside from the hurt It
does to character, it confuses the reason
of man to teach him there is no such
thing as pain. It urges Mrs. Eddy's
knowledge of anatomy against the under
stood laws of health. Dietary exercise is
of no consequence as compared with Ed
dy's writings at $3 a volume.
"The intention of Christian Science Is
excellent, but it is a cruel wrong to de
prive an Invalid, especially a child, of the
stored up riches of medical science which
have been accumulating like a reservoir
of mercies. Some diseases may yield to
It, but what shall we say of infectious
sickness, such as diphtheria, scarlatina,
smallpox and the like? It is an awful
responsibility to shut out the doctor with
hla remedial plans.

"The last count in the indictment
against Christian Science is that it offers
itself as a. substitute for the old church
of Christ. It is another form of secta
rianism. Instead of the old church which
has withstood the blasts of twenty cen
turies, it offers Mrs. Eddy's church, which
has Just begun its career. Instead of the
old Bible, it offers Eddy's Science and
Health, which, reading, we cannot under
stand and. understanding, we cannot
love. It offers a new hierarchy of heal
ers and readers, and the limit of the new
ecclesiasticism is a pope in petticoats.
"As a religion, Christian Science will
not do as a substitute for the Christianity
of Christ. The latfer is virgin gold and
the former .is the ore. from which we
must separate the worthless matter. Let
no one take you away from the dear old
church Trust God when illness comes
upon you, but make use of the means he
has provided, and so best deserve the
dear old name of Christians."
An Enthusiast Takes a Fling
at Bishop Moreland.
F. W. Gale, "chief reader" of the First
Church of Christ, Scientist, while not sur
prised at the opposition of Bishop More
land to thr teachings of Christian Sci
ence, claims that all the bishop gave ut
terance to was Incorrect and not founded
on good reason.
"We have scripture., the gospel and Je
sus on our side," he said yesterday. "You
cannot cite an instance where Christ em
ployed drugs to work a cure. It was by
truth that He healed and the teaching of
it. The assertion that we are not Chris
tian in spirit is untrue. It all depends
upon what your definition of Christianity
is. We follow religiously the early teach
ings of the faith.
"Results speak for themselves. Not long
ago at a big meeting in Boston those who
were cured by Christian Science were
asked to rise. There wore 3000 present,
and a great mass rose to their feet. The
attack on the book 'Science and Health'
may be answered by an actual occurrence
at the same meeting. It was asked how
many were cured by the reading of the
book and 300 people arose. Of course the
mere purchase of the book will not effect
a cure; it is the reading of it."
