Revelation at Eliza
Reeves' Autopsy.
Her Heart Measured Fourteen Inches

Were. Over an Inch in
-; '/•: :' Thickness. •¦ .. v- ; ;
Oakland Office San Francisco Call,
• 90S Broadway. Dec. 31.
An autopsy held this afternoon on the
remains of Mrs. Eliza T. Reeves, who
died very suddenly at her home. 837 Jack
son street, shortly after midnight last
night, revealed an enlargement of ; the
heart that Is a physiological phenomenon.
Mrs. Reeves, who is the wife of Thomas
Reeves, the well-known gardener, had
Just passed her sixty-second year and
ncr health In the past had been what
might be called perfect. She had been
married forty years and reared four chil
dren, two of whom are married, and on
the occasion of Christmas at the family
reunion she appeared in '¦ the., best '..of
health and spirits. . ¦ : -...-..' ...- •"• :: -C-\- '+.
At midnight she complained of a' pain
in her chest. ¦ Dr. Andrew .Fine waa
promptly summoned, but before- the phy
sician could arrive she passed away..-Cor
oner Mehrmann was notified to-day and
an inquest will be held next Tuesday. ?
Notwithstanding the ' husband's . objec
tions, an autopsy was held this after
noon by Dr. Fine, when it was found
that death^was caused by enlargement of
the heart. This propeller of life force,
however, proved to be the largest ever
seen by Dr. Fine in his many years' ex
perience aa an autopsy physician. Though
in her prime, Mrs. Reeves had tipped the
scales at .200 pounds, she was not a large
woman; at the time of her death. Her
heart weighed about nineteen ounces,
whereas'.'tne normal heart of an. adult
weighs between eight and ten ounces.
Mrs. Reeves'' heart measured eleven and
one-half Inches in circumference and
fourteen inches in the other measure
ment.: The walls of her heart were over
an Inch in thickness. :...-:..'.. . ¦
"The heart is the largest that I have
ever, seen, " said Dr. Fine to-night, "and
Iguess It is the largest any one has ever
seen in: a human body. It is marvelous
that. Mrs. Reeves lived as long as she did
without complaint as to tnat organ.
Aside, from the unusual size, the only de
fects 1 found were in some of the valves,
and it is probable that the valvular de
fects were the cause of the enlargement."
. Mrs.; Reeves was a native of Kngland,
aged 62 years, and had long resided in
this city; She was a member of the local
lodge of the order of Daughters of St.
George.: The funeral will take place next
Tuesday afternoon from the late resi
dence and the Interment will be in Moun
tain View Cemetery. . .- : ¦ ..
Gossip of Shatter's
Raised to a Retired Major General of
Regulars, He May Have to
Resign as a Vol
The proposed appointment" of Major
General Shafter of the volunteers as a
major general of regulars may have mon
significance than at first appears, for
there is a well-denned opinion among
army folk that the appointment can only
mean the immediate retirement of the
General in both ranks.
The plan to promote General Shafter,
at present a retired brigadier of the reg
ular army as well as a major general of
volunteers, to be a major general of regu
lars, comes from the President and the
Secretary of War. The rank will be given
by Congress by the passage of a bill
framed by the Secretary of War, but it
will carry no active duty with it. Shafter
has already passed the age limit and wad
retired as a regular officer last October,
so all Congress can do is to place him on
the retired list as a major general instead
of a b.ig;idier.
Ther*\ are those well versed in army
lore, however, who say such a thins a^
an officer holding two commissions of the
same rank,- one in the regular army and
one In the volunteers, is not according tn
military precedent. .The regulations are
silent on the matter, and if It be out of or
der at all it. Is because of some ruling of
the War Department. v :
Should it be found to be a military im
possibility- to confer the dual rank upon
General Shafter. it is probable he will re
sign his volunteer commission at once, for
to be a major general upon the rrtire<l
list for the remainder of a man's life ia
better than to be a major general of vol
unteers with at most no worse than eight
een months' service ahead.
The theory of. the position, according
to those who say the ¦ two commissions
cannot exist. Is this: An officer may leave,
the regular army to become a voluntet-r
officer only when such transfer i° a pro
motion as well. If he be not promoted his
services are considered of more use In th<»
regular establishment than In the volun
teers. If he be not raised in rank there
can be no reason for his transfer.
Like the Question of precedence between
Deweyand Miles, the matter of two ma
jor generals' commissions must be settled
by Washington. Bnt in what way it will
be settled is a question causing considera
ble Interest.

NEW YORK. Dec. Sl.— For their battle
at Coney Island to-morrow afternoon
Kid McCoy and Peter Maher of Ireland
are in perfect physical condition, the re
sult of six weeks of conscientious train
ing, iioth men to-day concluded their
preparation for the battle by taking but
mild exercise. McCoy's work consisted
of a five-mile horseback ride and tossing
the medicine ball, followed by a cold
shower bath and a hard rub down. At
the conclusion of his exercise the "Kid"
said that never in his life had he felt
better prepared for a fight. Bunches of
muscle .stood out proihinently on his
arms, chest and back. Every muscle ap
peared to have been trained to the highest
point of perfection. He looked a picture
of. perfect physical manhood. There is
no doubt that McCoy's physique has
undergone wonderful improvement. So
far as strength and weight is concerned
he is a better man to-day than ever. In
former battles McCoy has been reluctant
to make a knock-out prediction for him
self, but for lus fight with Maher he
states that he will surely knock the
Irishman out inside the limit of twenty
live rounds.
McCoy has selected as his place during
the battle the southwest corner. It is the
same that tiharkey occupied in his fight
with Jeilries. Mahtr will have the north
east corner, in which Jeffries rested in
his. lights with Fii? and Sharkey. Mc-

watch the old year out and the new year in. The pleasant gathering

. Mrs. Sehultz was assisted in making her guests welcome by her charm
ing daughter, Miss Stisie. The choirs were well represented In spite of the
rain, arid the evening proved especially fruitful in that It brought together
socially the religious musical organizations and made them acquainted— a
: thing that has not bern done before, and that was an original thought with
: the hostess. Among those Invited to be present were:

' wvxiT: : w l*-^ : a - r<¥COr d of success at- the
\T\yf ' : Adclf)lii Theater, London, where
. ¦ .¦ • ' ' Jt rah .tor '•¦'.- a twelvemonth . or
more.. It is the inpst pretentioiiu effort
the Frawliey. co'mjTany' has made, yet it
does not differ, greatly in ijuality. froni its
predecessors.' To analyze one melodrama
is to' atralyze all im-lodramns", rxctpt'r.g,
perhaps, u fc\y- thathcre.and.thorc make,
for originality— originality of the higher
sort I; mean, the kind that -.throws tradi
tion to the winds and bespeaks something
of the creative faculty In It* auilior.
"W ith Flying Colours" is not ' one of
these. It is built on the same old lines,
the' various impossible, popular- expres
sions of virtue and vice are all there, with
little or' no relief of n sound literary or
dramatic sort. People of intelligence do
not read stories, of this kind, mou^n thuu
sahds of them are published In paper-back
editions, and if they ure to bo made ac
ceptable on the stage it must bo by vir
tue of plcturesqutness and vitality. Thus
the setting nnrl acting are all important,
and the play Is notthe thing. .
In. point of scenery the production ut the
California is commendable. ; There are
fourteen scenes, which for the most part
are well contrived, and with but a few
forglveable concessions to expediency.
The usual contrasts prevail, ami one Is
taken" from the atmosphere of IoW life to
scenes . wherein gentlefolk pnjoy tho
amenities of wealth. All very phasing to
the. gallery anil sufficiently well carried
out to interest most people. The scene in
the wood In the second act, with its pic
nic and hunting party, is quite real in Its
tone, despite the contrast between the
English and the American members of tile
The Americans are very -artificially Eng
lish and .Mr. Harrington Reynolds is very
"Englishly" artificial. It was in "The
Sporting Duchess" that he did his best
work; anu Judging him by that- standard
ho Is not up to the mark In the present
production. A more perpetually conscious
actor were, hard to Imagine or one more
absorbed In his attitude and accent, j-'rari
cis Byrne has, I think, at last found his
milieu. As a lover ho was always im
possible, thouerh I thought nt flr«?i i"at his
rather j>ofr appf«rnnce cUv him out for
such parts. As 'he vil'Vn trt "Wl'b
ing -Colours" he acts earnestly and effeo
tl\ely.. Miss Van Buren is given the part
of an hnglish slavey, which I woul.l have
considered out of her line had I not seen
her in It.- She does some very cleve
character work with her small opportuni
ties. The rest of the cast is by far too
numerous to mention. .

Ohling Was Attacked
Close to His
• Home.
Oakland .Office San Francisco Call,
90S Broadway. Dec. 31.
. Erick O. Ohling, a ship joiner residing
at 1014 Pine street. West Oakland, was
attacked by two desperate footpads near
his home after midnight this morning and
sandbagged and relieved of his watch
and chain, besides about Sl2 in coin. Mr.
Ohling had spent the evening with friends
iii San Francisco and returned from the
metropolis on the late boat. Before he
left the other side, however, Ohling
stopped In several water front saloons to
quaff a nightcap or two. It is supposed
that during an Interval of frivolity he
flashed some gold coin, which glittered In
the eyes of two unknown thugs, who sup
posedly followed' him acress the bay to
within a few steps of his home on Pine
street. .
Ohling noticed two pedestrians behind
him, but regarded them- a? nlso belated
Oaklanders. Suddenly he was struck on
the head with a sandbag ami felled to the
sidewalk unconscious. , The footpads
promptly searchi-d him and relieved him
of his valuables; The thugs then made
good their escape, -.leaving their x'ictlm
to care for himself. After regaining con
sciousness Ohling hurried to his home
and to-day reported the robbery to the
police. . . ;•' ' '• ¦ .'• ? ¦:
Chief Hodgkins has been investigating
the matter,', but thus far. has found no
clew. -It !s his opinion that the thugs
followed Qhltng over from San Francisco
on the last . boat. The injury Ohling re
ceived froni being struck on the head la
not serious. . .':-'-::' •¦ .'-. .-¦ .-V.- 1 ¦•. >
Mrs. Cronin Robbed
on a Lonely
Oakland Office San Francisco Call,
90S Broadway. Dec. 31.
Footpads make no distinction in the se
lection of their victims, but the height of
the footpads' lowliness and cowardice was
illustrated last night when one of these
marauding gentry attacked a deaf mute
woman, named Mrs. Anna Cronln, who
resides with her aged husband near Rock
ridge Park. Mrs. Cronln returned from
San Francisco late with her basket load
ed down with Christmas goodies, and as
she was walking along the road between
Thermal Vale nursery and the Rookrldge
Park a man stepped out from behind a
bush and halted her. Being deaf and
dumb she could make no outcry and the
footpad quickly searched the woman, re
lieving her of about 70 cents In change
she carried In her pocket. He also took
with him her basket of purchases and
disappeared In the darkness.
A i r . s- £. ronln we °ded her way homeward
and In the language of the silent explained
everything to her husband, who is also
a deaf mute. To-day he reported the
robbery to Sheriff Rogers.
