PRIZE IS THE COMMERCE OF THE PACIFIC STATES. » Battle Will Commence in Los Angeles in March and Conflict Will Then Extend From South to Puget Sound. At last the long expected communica tion has been received in this city fixing definitely a date for the beginning of the bearing before the Interstate Commerce Commission of the witnesses and counsel for the Pacific Coast Jobbers and Manu facturers' Association. The Commission ers will be In Los Angeles March 27 and In San Francisco. April 2. At Los Angeles the matter of routing freight will be taken up, and then a part of the testimony In behalf of tho Jobbers and manufacturers may be heard. If so, that will do away with the necessity for the coming of wit nesses from the southern part of the State to this city.. It is now thought probable that the- Commlssloners will also go to Portland, where the Portland, Seattle and Tacoma manufacturers and Jobbers may testify. Possibly only the San Francisco and Sac ramento witnesses will be heard In this city and the proceedings thereby be short ened. Still, the Jobbers think the session in San Francisco will last about a fort night, for the details are many and there are representatives of all the leading lines of coast business to be heard and also cross-examined by the lawyers from St. Louis. A vast amount of work has been per formed to get the case ready for hearing. The testimony, will deal with several In teresting phases of the question of differ entials. An Investigation has shown that the differentials amount to only about one per cent on the value of the goods shipped from the East to Ban Francisco, bo the plea of St. Louis Jobbers that the differ entials prevent them from doing business on the Pacific Coast is without basis in fact. Another fact of great Importance has been developed. The distance from New York to St. Louis is about one-third of the distance to' San Francisco. Conse quently the differentials to San Francisco and all other Pacific Coast points ought to be three times as large as the St. Louis differential, upon a mileage basis, or much larger than the Pacific Coast differ ential now existing. There will probably be between -fifty and sixty witnesses to testify in this city, and quite a number In Portland and Los Angeles. No hearing in late years has such ma terial interest for the people of the coast. If the -graded rates that the St. Louis Jobbers ask for are put Into effect, and the differential based on water competition is abolished, as they wish, they will come pretty near taking away all the territory for business purposes that the Pacific Coast Jobbers and manufacturers now have. PROHIBITS THE SALE OF CONDEMNED MEAT Board of Health to Stop Auction of Quartermaster's Supplies — Dis ease Breeding Pools South, of Holly Park. At a meeting of the Board of . Health last night there was considerable discus sion over the possible danger to the health of the community that might result from the proposed sale of condemned quarter master's supplies by the military author ities, advertised to take place Tuesday and Thursday of this week. The first batch of supplies consists of a number of thousand pounds, of condemned pork, ba con and canned beef. The other lot con sists of tents, bedding and general camp equippage. Dr. McCarthy ' declared that it was the duty of the board to prohibit the sale of the condemned meat and to compel the thorough disinfection of thp tents and bidding before allowing the auction to take place. Health Olhcer O'Brien was instructed to see that this was done if after an investigation ha should deem such measures necessary- The health olficer was Instructed to call the attention of the Board of Public Wcrks to the unsanitary condition of the district south of Holly Park, bounded by Cortland avenue, Andover street. East avenue and Bennington street. According to the report of Sanitary' Inspector Green the place Is deficient in sewers and those constructed are not provided with outlets, and a pool of stagnant, filthy water, with no drainage, occupies the center of a va cant lot adjoining the Bernal School, where over 500 pupils attend. . . • ' Chairman d'Ancona;of the Supervisors' Hospital Committee notified the board that unless it could find some way to cut down the expenses of the City and County Hospital about $300 a month the institu tion would have to be closed during the last two months of the fiscal year.

Sunday afternoon the vessel had a narrow Q escape from a waterspout. She was off Point Reyes and Captain Rice and his men were congratulating them- !? selves on the near ending of the voyage. Suddenly the sky became overcast, the wind began to come In puffs and ? tne water began to bolL In the distance the sailors saw a waterspout headed toward them, and for a few mo- «S ments Jt looked as though their last hour had come. Luckily the spout changed Its course and sailed away In another ? direction. . * S£ The sudden changes In the wind and the pitching and tossing of the Metha Nelson caused the spanker boom to ? snap, and that was all the damage sustained. The schooner brings a large cargo of sugar from Makaweli, and after V discharging will return for another load. . • ? clary." Judge Cabanlss; song. D. S. Cramer; "The Press." John Deane; song.

Fifteen members of the promotion com mittee of the Commercial Museum met at the rooms of tho Board of Trade last ever.lr.gr for the purpose of' considering and adopting the plan of organization suggested by the committee of ten who were appointed at the first meeting. As there are forty members of the promotion committee, and Jifty-flve. by reason of augmentation subfftqufnt to the • first meeting, will be entitled to be promoters, no action was taken to adopt the plan. All the time was passed 'in deciding what would be the best time to meet to get a full att»ndance at another meeting and In discussing how to persuade the ab sentee? to come. There were so many days proposed for the meeting that finally the roll \ras called, and each gentleman ex pressed his choice of days. That method brought out a majority for Tuesday, Feb ruary 77. Some one suggested that the meeting be held in the evening, but then it was remembered that the Mardi Gras ball would take place that evening, 'and so the afternoon was selected Instead. W. R. Wheeler paid that every one of those present should consider himself a . com mittee of one to bring in another mem ber. Lipman Sachs wanted to have all the notices sent out, registered to attract more attention on the part of those who re relved them. Craiple Sharp said that they ought all to be notified by telephone -on the morning of the meeting. Some way will be devised to get a quorum. A. A. Watklns oresided and Professor Plehii acted as secretary- of the meeting.- M'DONALD'S AFFIDAVIT SAID TO BE INSPIRED Effort to Show That the Manauense , Was Owned by an American Company Ruled Out. There was a short session yesterday forenoon at the British Consul's office In the Investigation into the condition of the transport . Manauense. Chief Engineer McDonald completed his testimony. He was asked as to the circumstances under which he had' signed an affidavit before Notary James M. Ellis on Febru ary 5. His answer was that- he had be come bo much attached to the ship that he thought she" was doing all right. One of the owners had requested him; he said, to put the matter In as good a light as he could, but what he had stated in the af fidavit was what he believed at the time. Attorney H. W. Hutton offered to prove that the vessel was owned by the Western Commercial Company, which, he contend ed, was a California corporation, but ob jection was made, and the Consul declined to go Into that matter. The record would be the best evidence on that point, he said. Mr. Hutton. then introduced tho purser's record to show that during the period in which it was charged that Mc- Donald was drunk ho had bought no liquor for the period of six days except one pint of beer. ¦ The further hearing was continued un til to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.

EXCITING CHASE AFTER A WOULD-BE MURDERER CHARLES SHAW TRIES TO KTLL NOBA BIRCH. Attempts to Stab Her With a Knlfe» but the Landlady In terferes. . Th« rolice and a posse of south-of- Market -street citizens had an exciting chase after a would-be woman slayer last evening, which terminated In the capture of Charles Shaw, a waiter, who was charged at the City Prison with an as sault with a deadly weapon . and va pxancy. Shaw attacked Xora Birch with a knife in her rooms in a lodging house at 316 Third street, and had it not been for the timely interference of the land lady he raicht have succeeded In ending her life. The Birch woman has been living with Shaw for some time, but on Saturday last Ehe had him arrested and booked on a charge of "drunk." Shaw was released yesterday morning and he made several attempts during the afternoon to see the woman. She took refuge In the landlady's room, but Bhaw forced the door open and drew a knife. The landlady got between the cowardly assailant and nls Intended victim, and after making several ineffectual attempts to stab her Shaw left the room and ran down stairs. The landlady, who refused to give her name, gave chase and fol lowed the fleeing waiter to the corner of Fourth and Harrison streets, where he was knocked down by two citizens. A tremendous throng gathered quickly, and In the excitement Shaw escaped. lie ran up Fourth street, closely pursued by sev eral policemen and the crowd of citizens, and turned down Folsom street toward Third. Half way down the block P. A. Parrish stepped out and knocked Shaw down. Be fore he could get up reinforcements ar rived and Shaw was bundled Into an ex press wagon and driven back to the scene of his attempted crime, where he was turned over to Policemen Drlscoll and Re gan. SOCIETY STAMPS THE BAL MASQUE US "ALL RIGHT" ? An Active Request for Invitations. The demand for tickets clearly indicates that the forthcoming Mardi Gras ball, un der the. auspices of the San Francisco Art Association, will be highly successful. Let ters received at the Mark Hopkins Insti tute of Art yesterday contained many ap plications for tickets of admission. When a ticket is Issued the name of the lady or gentleman to whom it Is given Is entered on a book. Reference to the book shows that prominent leaders of local society arc already largely represented in the field of application. The officers of the asso ciation frankly assert that society has given its unqualified approval of the b*l masque, and the names appearing on the register of 150 Issued tickets corroborates the assertion of the management. The experience of the Art Association of San Francisco In the field of ball-giving has been varied, if not vast. The first dancing function of the association was given at the old rooms on Pine street dur ing the adminlstnatlpn of Daniel Cook. This initial entertainment was not a Mardl Gras event, but simply an artistic ball to which society was invited. The management, however, resolved that beau tiful decoration should be one of the fea tures to delfght the assembled dancers, and accordingly Virgil Williams, Jules Tavernier and M". Garibaldi, artists of re nown, were appointed to devise and exe cute the scheme of decoration. The Dall was appointed to take place on a Tuesday evening. It came to the knowledge of the decorating committee on the Sunday oven ing immediately preceding the event that not a single stroke of work had been done in the decorating line, and not the semb lance of a scheme of adornment for the occasion had been suggested. When the committee was sought it was found that Virgil Williams had gone to his ranch on Mount St. Helena, Tavernier was too bus ily engaged in his work to be disturbed and Garibaldi had- vanished. The whole responsibility at once devolved on J. R. Martin, assistant secretary of the assocJa tion. Dan Cook, president of the associa tion, an energetic and liberal man, toM Martin to go ahead and decorate. Sign painters, scenic artists and carpenters were employed. Martin had authority from Dan Cook to buy anything needed. The work began Monday morning and was not completed a minute before the lir^t carriage arrived Tuesday night. The ball was a great success from an artistic point of view, but the receipts fell $400 short of the expenses. A check to cover the de ficiency was promptly given by President Cook, hence the association emerged tri umphant from the ordeal. The Mardl Gras ball to be given on the 27th inst. will be the seventh in the his tory of the association. The first was given at the old rooms on Pine street. Joseph D. Redding was then president. The function was a pronounced success. Society bestowed its sweetest smile on the scheme. The decorations were beautiful to behold and the company was delight ful to entertain. Dowagers resplendent in diamonds added splendor to the occasion. The association gained money and fame by the function. '¦ "- The second Mardl Gras ball was given at the Grand Opera House, but the dow agers were Bhy of the publicity and did not give the affair the open commenda tion which was bestowed on tho ball at the rooms of the association. Tickets were placed at $10 each. In a financial sense the event was successful, but soci ety was not charmed or captivated. The next function of the kind was given at Odd Fellows' Hall, and the result con vinced the managers of the association that the plan "of hiring outside halls should be abandoned. Three successful Mardi Gras events have taken place at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art. The forthcoming ball will be the second under the administration of President Joseph D. The work of decoration and equipment for the next event is going forward speed ily at the mansion of the association on the hill. Captain Robert Howe Fletcher, the curator of the institute, is giving to the scheme of light and adornment per sonal supervision. t The new gallery will be used as a throne room on the occasion of the ball. There Prince Carnival and his court will assemble. The decorations will convey an Idea of court grandeur In the display of heraldic devices, shields, banners and standards. Palms In great profusion from Santa Barbara are ex pected to-day. All the boxes arranged for have been*eold and there Is demand for more spaces to view the carnival scenes. To-day or to-morrow the managers of the association will select some one to. fill the responsible office of Prince Carnival. There are several candidates for the honor of leading the carnival. the early days were In many cases with ,out relatives and uncared for.

MEDICINE DISPENSED FREE AMONG CHINESE SANITARIUM TO BE STARTED FOR SICK HEATHEN. Consul General Ho Vow Fathers a 1 Movement Which Will I«essen Suffering Among His People. For the first time in the history of San Francisco a free medical dispensary will be opened In Chinatown. The movement to aid the sick and poor Chinese was started by Consul General Ho Vow and that gentleman contributed $1500 of his own money to defray the initial expenses of the Institution. The necessity of a place where poor Chinese might receive humane treatment after disease had begun to gnaw at their vitals became obvious when the horrible and revolting exposure of tho "Chambers of Tranquillity" was made by the police. It was discovered that when the friend less Chinese became infirm or unable to work he was treated as an outcast and a burden upon his people and promptly con signed to an undertaker's bunk, where he passed away from earth a short time afterward and was quickly buried. No iredlcal treatment whatever was accord ed him and it was strongly suspected that foreign agents were often employed to assist disease in Its destruction of life. Eight prominent physicians of the, city have promised their assistance in con ducting the new hospital, which will open on Sacramonto street next week, and prominent Chinese merchants will sub scribe medicines, which will be given to the needy free of charge. The idea is a new one among the Chinese, but they have welcomed it gladly and believe that it will lessen a great deal of the misery and suf fering which have heretofore existed in the Chinese quarter.

Special Dispatch to The Call. PASADENA. Feb. 19.— James B. Stet son and Mrs. Eleanor H. Doe, who have been sojourning In Los Angeles for some time, were -quietly married at noon to day In the Presbyterian Church by Rev. Dr. Robert Mackenzie of San Francisco. James B. Stetson is president of the North Pacific Railway and the California Street Cable Car Company, and a mem ber of the big firm of Holbrook, Merrill & Stetson. '-¦ ,v*- Mrs. Eleanor H. Doe is the widow of the millionaire lumberman John S. Doe. Rev. Dr. Mackenzie of the First Presby terian Church accompanied the couple to the charming southern town and there made ' them man and. wife. -¦ None of the members of Mr. Stetson's family wit nessed the ceremony. The bride was ac companied by her only child, a daughter, ten years old. ' Although the announcement of the wed ding of the millionaire and. the charming widow came somewhat as a surprise, it was not altogether unexpected. For more than two years rumors of the engagement have been current, and with Just the same persistency as they regularly cropped up were they regularly denied by Air. Stet sons-- family.- ¦ • Announcement of the marriage yester day was made by Mrs. Robert Oxnard, a daughter of Mr. Stetson. "We knew that my father was to be married to-day," she said. "He and his bride will return here to their home. 1801 Van Ness avenue, to live. . Before they do, however, they will visit New Orleans, make a tour of Flor-i Ida and spend a short time In New York." | Mr. Stetson has three children, two daughters, Mrs. Robert Oxnard and Mrs. Chauncey "Winslow, and one eon, Harry Stetson. The lady who yesterday became Mrs. Stetson, although well and prominently known here, has lived a very retired life. She is extremely wealthy and quite a number of years younger than Mr. Stet son. Since the death of Mr. Doe she spent several years abroad, and after her return and up to the present time she has made h.er home at 2489 Jackson street. The bride of J. B. Stetson is fully twen ty-flve years his Junior. She is slender, below medium stature and decidedly en gaging In her looks, manners and conver- cation. She Is about 37 years of age. The estate of J. S. Doe. of which she and her daughter are the heirs. Is quite extensive. The St. Nicholas Hotel, land and struc ture, the property nearly opposite occu pied by Plum, the fine building and lots at the corner of Taylor and Market streets, and many other pieces of valuable property, belong to the estate. The Doe brothers, Bartlett and J. S.. were largely Interested In prosperous corporations out side of the lumber trade. It Is common gossip that the bride of Mr. J. B. Stetson Fs much richer in this world's goods than he Is. Her holdings, however, so exten sive and valuable, may require the per sonal supervision of a trained and meth odical man of business affairs. The bride Is a lady of sufficient attraction, personal and Intellectual, to win the comradeship of a good man even If she did not possess the prestige of wealth. J. B. Stetson, while advanced in years, has not attained the allotted span of three score and ten. but is not many laps short of it. . He rendered the city of San Fran cisco most exc«llent service as chairman of the Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors from 1579 until ISSI. If public honors had possessed fcr him special at traction he could easily have secured the position of Mayor of San Francisco. Had i he permitted the use of his name as a candidate for higher honors than Mayor he might have secured from the Republi can State Convention that nominated H. H. Markham the nomination for Gover nor of California. Mr. Stetson Is a mem mer of the Pacific Union Club, and at a little dinner party three weeks ago made the announcement of his' intended mar riage to Mrs. Doe. Mr. Stetson is not a club man in the common acceptation of the term. On the contrary, he is ex tremely fond of the comforts of a home. Once at the Bohemian Club he loitered until 3 o'clock, enjoying the mild revels of a jinks. It was an unusually late hour for him. "When he was about to get Into bed a few minutes after 3 o'clock there came a sharp shock of earthquake. This tremor of the earth was accepted in the household as a protest of nature against late hours and high Jinks for Mr. Stet son. The earth dirt not quake on the oc casion of the wedding at Pasadena. In business life Mr. Stetson is a hard, earnest worker. He inherited character istics of economy from his New England ancestry and environment, and these traits have not departed from him. Judge said that he waa satisfied the shot had been flred In the heat of passion, and as the men had been strangers to each other there was not that premeditation which would constitute murder.

THE American Bark Snow & Bur gess arrived from Australia yee terday morning after a fair pas sage of seventy-three days. It is many a day since a sailing vessel came Into port In as perfect order alow and aloft as is the Snow & Burgess. On January 9 she passed the long-looked - for A. G. Ropes in latitude 32 degrees IS minutes north, longitude 127 degrees 2 minutes west. This vessel left New York for San Francisco 206 days ago and the underwriters were beginning to wonder what had become of her. It waa known that she put Into the Falkland Islands with her rudder post twisted, and that she sailed again on October 80, but noth ing was heard from her after that until the Snow & Burgess -brought the news of her whereabouts. Captain Olsen of the Snow & Burgess reports that the A. O. Ropes came by the way of the Cape of Good Hope and Aus tralia. The two vessels were In company for three days, and when the bark bore down to within hailing distance the first thing Captain Rivers asked was "Who won the yacht race?" When the answer "Columbia" went back across the waters, the men on the Ropes gave three cheers and a tiger. As near as Captain Olsen could gather tho Ropes was caught off the Horn in the October weather that damaged so many vessels. Captain Riv ers stated, that when he got into Port Stanley he found twelve disabled vessels there. It was impossible to get any re pairs made in a hurry, so he fixed up the rudder as well as he could and came on to across the Pacific. The sailing- of both vessels was cabled on the same day, but the American did not sail until two days after the Britisher, so in' reality the Snow & Burgess beats the Calthness-shlre twenty-four hours. The Snow & Burgess has been away from the coast for nearly a year. She loaded lumber, on Puget Sound for South Africa and met with a" number of mishaps before reaching Aus tralia. While In the tropics a sailor named O. Hansen fell overboard. He was a good swimmer and had no trouble in keeping himself afloat. A boat was lowered, but when It was within ten yards of the sailor a shark's fin appeared on the surface and a few seconds later Hansen was dragged under. A moment , later ¦• the water showed red and the men in the boat knew that all was over with their comrade. - While entering Delagoa Bay the Snow & Burgess struck heavily on the bar. She was deeply laden and the captain of the tug that had her in tow made a mis calculation. In consequence nearly all the copper on the vessel's bottom was sera pwl off and she was strained a good. deal. After discharging she went to Sydney, N. S. W., in ballast, and on arriving there went on the- drydock for repairs. After receiving a thorough overhauling she weat to Newcastle, N. S. . W., and loaded coal for San Francisco. The Pacific Mail Company's steamer Peru arrived from Panama and way ports yesterday. She brought seven cabin, twenty-one steerage and • three Chinese passengers. The City of Para sailed for Mexican and Central American ports yesterday." Among the passengers were Dan M: Burns, wife and daughter. . ¦
