Ralston Succeeds Jacob Neff as President, THE men from the mines who came to San Francisco as delegates to the eighth annual convention of the Cali fornia Miners' Association completed the business of the session yesterday morning and adjourned sine die. Hon. Jacob Neff, who has presided over the as sociation since its organization, felt that his advancing years would not permit him doing justice to the office, and he to again become a candidate. William C. Ralsnon was elected his suc cessor by acclamation, amid the wildest enthusiasm. Fred Zeitler was selected to fill the office of vice president, made va cant by the promotion of Mr. Ralston. Treasurer Hendy and Secretary Benjamin were re-elect <*d. Ifany matters of moment to the mining Industry came before the convention just '. and much was done that will re pult in benefit. A movement was made toward securing at the hands of Congress the creation of the Cabinet office of Sec retary of Mines and Mining. If the move ment does not accomplish the desired re- Fult it will certainly make itself felt at the. national capital. Never were mon mnro determined in any matter than the miners are in this one. Senator Perkins, in addressing the convention on Tuesday, told i lie delegates that the tight was hope festerdy Judge Davis resented the Senator's attempt to discourage the min ers, and suggested that he had better "com:' uff the perch," as, the- speaker as All the virtues of barley and hops are retained in Wielands Extra Pale by expert brewing.

The delegates were slow to assemble j for the session yesterday morning. The reception to the visiting delegates and maybe other things that had happened | the night before made early rising almost an Impossibility, and it was some time past the hour set for the meeting when Chairman Neff called the convention tn order. As soon as the few stragglers, for whom the sharp, fresh air seemed to have an attraction, were herded into the hall. Congressman Julius Kahn was called ; upon for an address. He said that ho 1 would not attempt to talk about mining, because the- must inexperienced miner in i i the assemblage knew more about it than I he did. I "But Ido want to say a word about the I j close relations of the city and the interior ; There was a time wh. n the people from ' the interior thought that thr-ir interests 1 and those of the city were dissimilar. ' There was never any excuse for such an j idea. You must observe that the building ' i up of the city means increased prosperity I to the interior. If our merchants ar»- flo ; ing well and making money, a demand is | created for your products, and they are ! able to invest in your mines." Congressman Kahn assured the conven tion that he was in hearty sympathy with the measures it favored for "the benefit of | the mining industry. Ills voice and his '■ vote, he said, would be used for the min ers In securing Federal aid in the matter j of the conservation of fi*>od water On I the subject of a Cabinet officer, he stated that It was his opinion that the claim was ! a Just one, and that the miners deserved that recognition from the national Gov ernment. He advised the delegation to continue the agitation until success was theirs. He promised to do all that he pos j sibly could to further the movement. Judge R. B. Carpenter of Los Angeles i I followed. "All that I know about mln- I ! ing." he said, "is how to put a great deal ; : of money in a hole in the ground, but not ] i how to get any out. I am a novice at got- < i ting money out of the ground, but I am a pastmaster in getting it in." The business of the day, the selection of a new board of officers, was then an ; nounced. B. N. Shoecraft, who favored ] ; making the delegates "scrap" for office j at every annual convention, nominated. ex-Senator Voorheis of Nevada for pr^si- j dent. While appreciating the honor, Mr. Voorhelp declined to stand for the office, for the reason that his business would not permit of him devoting the time to it Uiat it deserved. William C. Ralston was then placed in i nomination by Judge John F. Davis. His j nomlnatlns speech was a gem and fired I the miners with enthusiasm. "Our new president must be a miner," he said "and : the question is, who is the man that can ! do us the most good and the best servico? j We want a fighter. We want a man who ! j will not be fraid to face even a United | States Senator and tell him to come off his perch when he comes here and tells us that our demand for representation in | the Cabinet is unreasonable and likely to i fail of success." Great applause greeted , this reference to Senator Perkins' remarks !of the previous day. Mr. Ralston was i elected by acclamation, and in acknowl | edging the honor, said that he was not much at eloquence, but that when it came to working he always did the best he could. Hon. Tirey L. Ford nominated Fred Zeitlor for vice president, and he went Into office with a hurrah. S. J. Hendy was THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1899.

Ben jamin, who has been secretary for many ! term?, had no opposition. ; Chairman Neft made a happy speech in ; introducing his young successor into I office, and promised the miners that while I his life lasted he would be with them in i all they undertook. As he relinquished j the gravel the delegates jumped to their feet and pave him throe rousing cheers.

A. H. Ricketts Intrci ! duced a resolution praying Congress to en ; act a law giving more protection to the pe | troleum miners of California. The con ! vention voted it down.

In the afternoon many of the delegates took advantage of the Invita tion to visit the Union Iron Works. They were takpn from Minion Pier 2 on the tug Sea Witch and passed a pleasant after noon inspecting the great ship-building plant. Many of the miners left last even ing for their homes in the mountains. When taken at the proper time a little Jesse Moore "AA" whiskey will prevent a cold.

St. Francis Church, on Valle.in street, k wns rohbc-d of sevorn.l piotun-frnmes last Monday night. The robbery was evi* dently the work of vandals, as the frames were not of much value, and the only object the parties could have In taking them was to commit malicious mischief. The frames were stolen ffom a wall In the vestibule of the church and were not missed until yesterday.

Chemist Both* and Officer Jack Butterworth, with four teen inspectors from the Board of Health, descended upon the Chinese shrimp-catch ers' camps at Butchertown yesterday af ternoon and condemned and burned over 15,000 pounds of shrimps. A recent an alysis made of the Butchertown crusta ceans developed the fact that they were loaded with deadly ptomaines and highly dangerous to health. Upon this showing the Board of Health adopted a resolution prohibiting the catching and selling of all shrimps in Butchertown waters. The Chinese refused to obey the order, and the "•aid of yesterday was the result. HITE CASE IS CLOSED READY FOR ARGUMENTS Indian Woman Again on the Stand. There was no war yesterday in the trial of Hite vs. Hite. Attorneys, court re porter and Judge were on good behavior and not a cross word or an innuendo escaped their lips. All interested in the case seemed anxious to bring it to a close and in this they were successful. The afternoon and morning sessions ended the case as far as evidence is concerned. On Monday morning the attorneys will go to the arguments. On order of Judge Jones the language referring to blackmail, cowardice, guns that were not called into action and the passing of lies was stricken from the record. Several witnesses were put upon the stand in the morning, James Ferguson, Tommy Gibbs and the Indian woman who goes by the name of the millionaire, for a part oi whose fortune she is now light ing. Ferguson testified that Hite and the Indian woman were spoken of as aunt and uncle by William Grove, who was a frequent visitor at Ferguson's place in the country. Tommy Gibbs was examin ed and he said his mother was not accus tomed to a long separation from Hite dur ing the time they were on intimate rela tions. He admitted she went to fan dangos where general Indian revelry oc curred, but every time with the consent of Hite. Lucy was then called and some time was consumed in trying to show that Lucy attended these native celebrations at the request of the tribe because she wasachieftain's daughter, not because her inclination or desire prompted It. Under a short cross-examination by Foote she said she did not know her father's name, but she knew he was a "Big 'Un " be cause she heard It. In the afternoon a* certified copy of the marriage license of John R. Hite and Cecilia Nouges was sworn to by Deputy County Clerk F. H. Masson of Oakland. It was dated October 12, 1897. Two days later they were married and on the 15th the marriage was recorded. Attorney Foote wanted to examine F. W. Berlin, as he had heard Berlin had denied the evidence given by Attorney Rodgers in regard to the compromise. Berlin was not to be found, so Foote concluded to close kis end of the case. On agreement be tween attorneys the case was closed. The arguments will be delivered in Judge Heb bard's courtroom next Monday, Van R. Paterson speaking for the plaintiff and W. W. Foote for the defendant. In the Divorce Court. Decrees of divorce were granted yester day to May E. Portley from M. J.
