GERMANY ATTEMPTS
TO SEIZE GEN SAN
Koreans With Russiar>s at Their
Elbow Warn Prince H^ nr y
to Y^eep Off.
!S VICTORIA, B. C, Sept. 6.— Malcolm Fenwiok, a Canadian mission
ed ary. who arrived by the Glenogle from Gen San, Korea, tells a story of
>5 how Germany prepared to seize another Kiaoohau. in Korea. He says
5 Prince Henry attempted to attach Gen San for the Kaiser, but the Ko
!? reans, with the Russians at their elbow, frustrated the attempt.
• Shortly before Mr. Fenwick left Gen San the German gunboat Irene
i> swung into port. The residents of Gen San were greatly excited when
5 she arrived, for in the past ten years no German ship has been seen
jj there. When the commander of the Irene went ashore he gave notice
> that the warship Peutschland, with Prince Henry of Germany on board,
would arrive in a few days, and before two days had elapsed^in came the
S big warship with the Prince. The port of Gen San is the outlet for
5 Port T.azareff, to which the Russians have set claim, and the visit of
y the throe warships— for a third German cruiser arrived soon after the
3 Deutschland— was, Mr. Fenwick said, the first step toward the acqulsi
£ tion of the port by Germany, who is known to have long been looking at
y it with longing eyes. The Germans were doubtless goaded into activity
$ by the manner in which Russia Is usurping Port Lazareff. The harbor
> on which both ports stand is in the- form of a figure 8, and Gen San,
i situated at the junction of the figure, commands the entrance. Prince
> Henry remained at Gen San three weeks and entertained lavishly.
5 Sinister stories were being told by the foreign element during his
1 visit of the leasing of the port, which, as well as being of strategic ad
-2 vantage, is the outlet to the west from the German concession, some
• fifty miles away. While his ships were at Gen San Prince Henry went
> to Fusan to apply for a concession to build a railway from Seoul to Gen
? San. The application was politely refused, the German Prince being
5 told that a Korean company had already been granted such a conces
> sion.
LONG REST FOR
ADMIRAL DEWEY
Will Be Given Indefinite
Leave.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
CAM. HEAPQIWRTEKP. WELLING
TON HOTEL, WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.-
When Admiral Dewey is formally de
tached from sea duty immediately after
the return of the cruiser Olympia next
month he will be granted an indefinite
leave of absence and given duty again
only upon his own application.
Considerable interest was manifiested in
naval circles today by a report from
Gibraltar this morning that the Admiral
had stated that he probably would retire
under the regulations. If the Admiral
holds to this derision he will be placed on
the retired list on December 2'"> next, when
he will have reached the age of 62 years.
Under the law all naval officers, unless
[ally exempted by act of Congress, are
relegated to retirement upon reaching the
age of 62. The act reviving the grade of
Admiral for Admiral Dewey contained a
provision that he should not be retired >x
cept upon his own application. There will
be no change in the Admiral's pay upon
his retirement.
Th-re has been considerable talk In
naval circles regarding the formation of a
board to control important naval matters
and it has been reported that either Ad
mirul Dewey or Admiral Sampson should
be its chairman. Jt is true that a sug
gestion of this kind has been present^
to the department, but there is no likeli
hood that it will be adopted.
At any event an Admiral will not be the
head ot such board. It is possible that
Admiral Sampson will have- duty of an
advisory character, but he will not be as
i to command th< New Fork or any
other navy yard, so far as officials here
are aware of Secretary Long's intention.
I understand Rear Admiral Hichborn,
Chief Constructor, is preparing his views
on the Secretary'" proposition to consoli
date the bureaus of Equipment, Steam
Engineering and Construction and Re
pair, and it will be submitted immediately
upon the Secretary"s return.
Although there is a probability the
rruisor Chicago will return to New York
In time to take part in the recr-ption to
Admiral Dewey, it may be stated posi
tively that there is no Idea at the Depart
ment of permitting Rear Admiral Howi
?on to supersede Rear Admiral Sampson
In charge of the naval ceremonies. Rear
Admiral Howison if senor to Admiral
Sampson and the latter would naturally
be under his command if he were to re
main on the Chicago and take part in the
celebration. The Chicago left Rio de Ja
neiro this morning for Barbadoes, en
route to New York, and is four days
ahead of her Itinerary, which fixed Oc
tober 5 as the date of her arrival. I'nless
Admiral Howison rushes the Chicago
along, therefore, it is hardly likely that he
will arrive at New York until after the
celebration has occurred. In any event
it Is understood he will not be in command
during the reception to Admiral Dewey,
even should it be necessary for the De
partment to issue orders directing his im
mediate detachment.
WILL START A DAILY
PAPER IN SAN RAFAEL
Joseph Fauntleroy, Formerly of the
Journal, Makes the Ex
periment.
SAX RAFAEL, Sept. Joseph Faunt
leroy, a former employe of the Marln
Journal, will start a daily evening news
paper in this city, the first copy to be
issued next week. The last dally paper
published here was issued every morning
by the notorious T. H. Rush and was
named the Sun. The Sun would better
have been published in the Arctic regions,
local newspaper men assert, for it set in
six months.
A similar fate is prophesied for the
journalistic venture of Mr. Fauntleroy, as
the lesson taught by a sad experience is
that San Rafael forms too limited a field
for a daily.

BANTA BARBARA, Sept. 6.—Council
man Welle of the Fifth Ward to-day
swore to a warrant charging Mayor Ed
mund M. Burke with disturbing .is peace
and quiet by tumultuous and offensive con
duct. The Mayor pleaded not guilty to
the chaige and the case was set for Wed

trouble grew out of an article signed by
Weile, abusing the Mayor, to which j
Burke took exception and demanded an '
apology from the Councilman. When he '
refused the Mayor took him to task in
language more vigorous than elegant.

THE SAN FEANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1899.
PENDLETON'S DEED
PREMEDITATED
Important Evidence of
Joseph Flynn.
Special Pisratch to The Call.
KESWICK, Sept. 6.— At the Coroner's
inquest held to-day to investigate yester
day morning's tragedy in which John
Pendleton killed Jake Randall but a few
witnesses were called. The most import
ant evidence was that of Joseph Flynn,
a wood-passer who was returning home
from his work an hour before the shoot
ing. He overtook Pendleton on the road
carrying a riflo on his shoulder. He asked
Pendleton why he was carrying a gun
and Per,dleton said: "Jake Randall has
threatened to kill me and I am going to
give him a chance this morning."
No one has been found who can testify
that Randall ever made any threats of
that kind. Mrs. Ends, who is conk at the
bottling works forty yards distant from
the scene of the shooting, says she saw
the whole affair. Randall came down the
hill toward the cabin where Pendleton
stopped. She saw him hold up both hands
as if asking for mercy. Pendleton fired
and Randall fell dead in his tracks. She
was not summoned before the Coroner's
jury. The jury rendered a verdict {hiding
that Randall came to his death by a gun
shot wound Inflicted by John Pendleton
and that it was a case of unjustifiable
homicide.
Eleven of the twelve signed the verdict,
only one refusing to sign with the word
"unjustifiable" retained.

VAQUERO AND INDIAN
FIGHT ON THEIR PONIES
Novel Pugilistic Encounter in Which
the Son of the Forest Is
Worsted.
COVELO, Sept. 6. — A novel pugilistic
engagement took place here to-day. Will
lam Russell, a mountaineer and vaquero,
was "outriding" for a friend who was
breaking a bronco. The bronco got
mixed up with a lot of horses tied to a
horse rack. An Indian, somewhat Intoxi
cated, rode his horse squarely in front of
the bronco and refuspd to move out of
the way. Russell became angry and
threatened the Indian, who took up the
challenge, and the fight was on. The
horses were soon as Furious as the men
and were cavorting and plunging madly,
while the fighter .: were striking and par
rying-. The melee was finally settled
when Russell landed a powerful right
hander on the forehead of the Indian,
who caught himself on the pommel of his
saddle and saved himself from falling.
Blood gushed from his nose and mouth.
Recovering quickly, however, he turned
his horse and galloped toward the reser
vation.
■Warrants were sworn out for both
combatants to appear to-morrow morn
iiiK l»-fore the Justice. The physician at
the reservation thinks the Indian too
badly used up to appear and entertains
grave fears that the encounter may cost
him his life.

Captain Elliott Brings News of a
Number of Drownings on the
Shores of Cook Inlet.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SEATTLE. Sept. 9.— Otto Thews of
Primrose, lowa., who has arrived here \
from Copper River, Alaska, brings news !
confirming the reported deaths of seven
members of the scientific prospecting
company of New York.
The dead are: Earhart, Miller, Aller
man, Schultz, Peter Siegel, Buttner and
Baumgartner.
George Hooker, another member of the
party, got out alive, but is badly crippled
With Bcurvy, which carried away the ma
jority of his companions. Baumgartner
went out hum ing one day and was never
scon again. The most affecting case was
that ot Buttner, who was driven insane
by his sulTeringri. His weak companions
had to strap him down, but even then
they could not restrain him. One morn
ing Thews, whose camp was near, found
Buttner sitting out in the snow with his
clothes and hat off. The thermometer was
45 degrei s below zero. JJuttner was taken
inside, but he died In a few hours. The
party was camped at Twelve Mile camp,
: just beyond Valdes glacier.
Thews also brings a grewsome story in
connection with the rinding of the re
mains of a jeweler named Smith of New (
York, who perished last winter on Valdes .
glacier. Every exposed portion of the :
body had been eaten away by ravens. The I
remains were identified as those of Smith :
by the clothing and effects found with
them. A purse containing %'lbO was among ;
the effects.
A prospector named Austed, a partner <
of Smith, said a money belt which con
tained a considerable sum of money was !
missing. Thews says he had a close call i
crossing the glacier. He fell Into a
crevasse I'M) feet deep, but the pack on
his back caught him and held him until
his companions came to his rescue.
Captain Charles P. Elliott, U. S. A., a
member of the Government exploring
party under Captain Glenn of the Twen
ty-fifth Infantry, which has been gath
ering data at Cook Ir.let, Alaska, has re
turned here. Captain Elliott reports
meeting a greal many prospectors, nearly
cvi ry one of whom was broke, while
many were sick with scurvy and other
disi uses. The expedition rendered these
unfortunates all tne aid possible.
•Cook Inlet," said the captain, "is i
difficult body of water to navigate. It
is a very intricate system and very dan
: gerous by reason of the vertical tide I
wave, some six feet high, that cornea I
rushing in at race-horse speed at spring I

this summer, people being caught in the
flats and overwhelmed by this rushing
wall of water. 1 '

SPONGLE'S CASE
IN THE COURTS
Arguments Begun atSan
Jose.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SAN JOSE. Sept. 6.— The matter of the
legality of the action of the Governor and
the board of managers of the Agnews
State Hospital for the Insane In removing
Dr. Sponogle from the superintendency of
that institution came up before Judge Hy
land to-day under the writ of review sued
out by H. V. Morehouse, the doctor's at
torney.
In opening the proceedings Attorney
General Ford read an extensive typewrit
ten answer to the petition, in which it was
denied that the meeting of expulsion at
the Palace Hotel was a special meeting,
but was an adjourned session of a regular
meeting. Other material allegations were
denied and the averments made that Dr.
Sponogle was removed In accordance with
the law for the best interests of the hos
pital.
The opening argument was made by At
torney General Ford. He hold that it
was not necessary to prefer charges and
that the board of managers had the right
to remove the superintendent summarily
at any time. It was also contended that
the court had no jurisdiction in that mat
ter and that Dr. Sponogle's remedy was in
a mandamus suit to prevent his removal
from office.
Attorney Morehouso then began his ar
gument in behalf of Dr. Sponogle. It was
directed principally to the point as to
whether the medical superintendent was
elected for a prescribed term of four
years. The law bearing upon this point
was quoted at length.
It was held that the act of the Legis
lature in forming the Lunacy Commission
did not repeal the statutes which provide
for the tenure of office of the medical su
perintendent. It was attempted to be
shown by the speaker that the former
statute, in making the term of four yean
for the officer In question, provided that
he should not be removed without written
charges being made, and had not bevn re
pealed. The matter was then submitted
for decision.
