HARTFORD. Conn., Aug. 30.— The big
eVent of the Grand Circuit meeting- at
Charter Oak Park to-day was the first
two-minute pace ever scheduled. There
: were five starters, John R. Gentry draw
! ing out after a contest in which there was
a dispute between the park management
and the owner of the horse. The trouble
arose over a misunderstanding as to
I whether the event was a two-in-three or
three-in-five. It was a three-in-ttve, and
Gentry drew his horse, the management
protesting and leaving the matter in the
hands of the judges.
The starters were Joe Patchen, Ana
conda, Chehalis, Frank LJogash and
Searchlight was very unsteady, breaking
I badly, and was never in any hopes or

Patchen, 50 for Searchlight), led until the
stretch in the first heat, when Joe Patchen
came in under the whip and a hard push
and took the mile In 2:04%.
The second heal was Patchen's all the
way, and the final heat, which took the
race in 2:03%, enualed the track record,
made in 1897 by Star Pointer in an exhibi
tion race with Gentry. There was the
greatest enthusiasm. After the first heat
Joe Patchen sold 3 to 1, with Boganh 4 to
3 that he would get inside of the money.
The unfinished race of Tuesday, the 2:13
trot, was won by Peter the Great, Mal

NO ASSURANCE OF
WASHINGTON, Aug. 30.— President
McKinley's proclamation announcing the
taking of the < a census having been
published In Cuba to-day by Major Gen
i ral Brooke was made public at the White
House to-day. Those who had expected
to find in this message a char outline of
tin policy of the administration in deal
ing with Cuba will be disappointed. The
message is very brief. It gives no ex
assurance of national independence
for the island. The President's reference
to ill- establishment of an efficient system
O f self-government will generally be con
strued as an Indication that national in
dependenci is contemplated, though it
might be interpreted as looking only to
local Belf-government under the supreme
authority Of the United States. This is
the t roclamation:
August 17, 1899.
To the People of Cuba: The disorganized
condition of your island, resulting from the
war and the absence of any generally recog
nized authority aside from the temporary mili
tary control of the United States, have made
it necessary that the United States should fol
low the restoration of order and peaceful in
dustry by giving its assistance and supervision
to the successive steps by which you will pro
ceed to the establishment of an effective system
As a preliminary step In the performance of
this duty. 1 have directed that a census of the
people of Cuba be taken and have appointed
competent and disinterested citizens of Cuba
as enumerators and supervisors. It is impor
tant for the proper arrangement of your new
government that the Information sought shall
be fully and accurately given, and I request
that by every means in your power you aid the
officers appointed in the performance of their
duties. WILLIAM McKINLEY.

SAYS COURTS CANNOT
MAKE PEOPLE HONEST
OAKLAND, Aug. 30.— "A court of jus
tice must decide a case as to the !;i\v,
but cannot make people honest," casually
remarked Judge Ellsworth in banding
dcwn a decision in a rather Interesting
foreclosure suit, to-day.
The suit was that of Alfred Croker
versus Frank S. Cheeseman, lather of
the murderer Frank H. Cheeseman, wiio
escaped from Napa and. is now believed
recaptured In Montana. The mortgage In
question amounted to $7(Xi. covering the
Cheeseman residence in Berkeley, and At
torney K. L. Simpson, on beha
Cheeseman, set up the cluim that the
property wa.s a homestead, contending,
therefore, that without iis abandonment
no mortgage would hold good.
Congressman Victor Metcalf appeared
as attorney for Croker, and declared that.
Cheeseman uad homesteaded the prop
erty tirst, anrt without informing «he
mortgagee, subsequently mortgaged \lie
same. Together with attorney's fees and
costs Croker sought to recover $SSO.
Judge Ellsworth gave a personal judg
ment for the sum sued for, but decided
that the mortgage waz no lien on the
property, Incidentally making the remark

WHY HOAG AND
CAMP ARE ENEMIES
An interesting case was partly heard in
Judge Mogan's court yesterday, the com
plalning witness and the defendant being
well known in New York— the former as a
journalist and the latter as the son of a
The charge was threats against life, the
complaining witness being F. S. Camp,
outside agent for the American Export
Association in this city, and a Journalist
known under the norn de plume of "Wink
ley P. Swift." The threats were alleged
to have been made in the Davy Crockett
saloon on Market street on August 22.
The defendant is R. H. Hoag, who lives at
526 Eddy street.
Camp in his evidence testified that he
knew Hoag in New, York, and they used
to chum together and have jolly times.
He had not seen Hoag for some years till
a few months ago. when he met him in
this city, and at his request he went to
live at his house on Eddy street. Hoag
at that time was agent for a chewing gum
company. Hoag had collected money
coming to him and had never accounted
for it and he Instanced an account of
$12 50 collected by Hoag from the Cali
fornia Fireworks Company. Hoag h:-td
also got an overcoat from him valued at
$40 On August 22 Camp and H. J. Bar
nett the architect, were in the Davy
Crockett saloon, when Hoag entered and
grossly insulted him. finishing up by tell
ing him to arm himself, so as to he pre
pared for their next meeting. As he did
not consider it necessary or judicious to
carry a revolver, he had applied to the
courts for protection.
Barnett and K. \V. Joy were put on the
stand as witnesses for the prosecution,
but their evidence was incompetent and
immaterial, as they did not hear any
threatening language used. Alexander
Loughborough Jr. was also called as a
witness as to an alleged threat made by
Hoag against Camp a few days previous
on Van Ness avenue, but he was unable
to throw much light on the subject
Hoag in his defense stated that he knew
Camp in New York, but there was no
great degree of Intimacy between them.
When he drove in his carriage in New
York Camp used to accompany him and
hold the reins till he had finished his calls.
He met <'amp on Third street some
months ago. He was in rags and he took
pity on him. He consulted his wife, and
th*i result was that he invited Camp to
come to his house and live with him, and
he gave him $15 for pocket money, besides
supplying him with two suits of clothes
and a pair of shoes to make him appear
respectable. He paid his bills at different
restaurants and also his laundry bills,
amounting to $15 per month. He charac
terised him as a professional dead beat.
He denied threatening to kill him but ad
mitted that he said he would lick him.
Camp had been thrown out of his house
owing to his drunken habits. Hoag In
dignantly repudiated the insinuation that
he kept a lodging-house. He said his
father was n millionaire in New York and
owned blocks of land and houses In
(•range N. Y. His brother-in-law was
Prepiclent Hlnes of the Manhattan' Oil
Company. It wan not necessary for him
to collect money belonging to Camp or to
work as he had an income of *"><X> per
month from property in New York. Re
garding the overcoat, he said that <~"amp
had pawned it for $.? and asked him u>
get it out <>t" pawn. He did so, but the
next day it was stolen out of his carriage.
The case was continued till Friday to
enable Hoag to subpena the clothiers and
shoemaker who fitted out Camp at his ex
Hotel Nymphia Nuisance.
After two weeks' delay a jury was
finally obtained In Judge Graham's
court yesterday afternoon to try the case
of the proprietors of the Hotel Nymphia.

BABY ESTHER SACRIFICED
Oakland Office San Francisco Call,
908 Broadway, Aug. 30.
Had the city ordinance been obeyed by
the Southern Pacific street-car line in this
city, it is probable th*t little Baby Es
ther Wahlstead might now be living. She
was killed on Alcatraz avenue, but the
motorman of the car, who was the only
employe on board, says he knows nothing
about running over the child, although it
occurred in broad daylight before 6:30
Some months ago the City Council
: passed a law for the express purpose of
j avoiding such accidents as the killing of
Ksther Wahlstead. It was made illegal to
j run a car in the city without having two
: employes upon it. As several lads were
| then being employed on branch lines as
i conductors where the traffic is light, the
I ordinance was made so that one of the
employes might be under 18 years of
age. This was done to prevent throwing
several lads out of employment. The law
; has been obeyed by every car line in town
i except those owned by the Southern Pa
cific. When the branch line on which last
night's fatality occurred was opened sev
eraJ years ago it was not within the lim
its of the city, and therefore was at lib
■ rty to run with one man. When the ter
ritory was annexed to Oakland the prac
tice of saving a boy's wages was kept
up, with the result that the motorman
has killed a human being with his car
and declares that he did not see it done
and does not know how it occurred.
An investigation of the tracks shows
j that the child was first struck almost
; abreast of her home and was carried 1000
j feet across Shattuck avenue before the
i lit tlo corpse was disentangled from the
! wheels. Not until the return journey did
