E. H. Ellsworth's Appeal to the Su
preme Court of No Avail.
E. H. Ellsworth, editor of a little paper
In Mendoclno County, shot and killed
Constable Dixon at the railroad station
at Montague in 1898. The editor had been
in trouble in the way of attaenment suits
and libel cases, and at the time of the
tragedy he and his wife were about to
visit this city. Ellsworth was a nervous
excitable man and he declared that he
would 1:111 any one who attempted to mo
lest him. "When Constable Dixan ap
peared at the station to serve upon him a
warrant for libel Ellsworth flred two
shots from a revolver that he aad con
cealed in his coat pocket, proiucln^
wounds that resulted ln the officer s death
a ff-w days later.
At the trial the defense set up the
plea of in«anity and attempted to Intro
duce testimony as to events taking place
a lone time before the shooting. This the
trial Judge refused to allow to bd admit
ted, and after Ellsworth was lojnd
gu!lty of murder ln the second degre-j
the prisoner appealed to the Supreme
Court, setting up that the refmal of the
Judge to admit the testimony was a vital
error. Yesterday the Supreme Court
passed upon the matter and found that
no error, had been committed, which will
necessitate Ellsworth's stay for a tlm<j in
the State Prison-

SUSPECTED POOLROOM
FOR WOMEN RAIDED
Chief Sullivan was notified on Monday
afternoon that a number of women were
ln the habit of visiting room 10, 632 Market
street, and he Instructed Captain Splllane
to Investigate. Lieutenant Mooney and
Policemen McGrayan, Laws and Conlon
were detailed on the case, and when they
reached the room they found twenty
seven women there and two men. When
the women saw the officers there was the
wildest excitement, as they all Imagined
they were to be arrested.
The place was run by Jones & Johnson;
at least, these were the names they gave,
and they denied that they sold pools on
races, as was expected, saying they dealt
only In margins on the Eastern markets.
There was no evidence of poolselllng ob
tained to warrant any arrests, and after
taking a few names of the women, which
were all fictitious, the officers withdrew.
The Chief, however, ordered that the
place should be blockaded, and an officer
has been stationed there since.

The motion to appoint a committee was
seconded by Mr. Hennessey. In support
of the motion Mr. Bouvier remarked that
It was common report that some of the
members of the Congressional committees
ln the Fourth and Fifth districts had
been named by bosses outside of the con
vention. He thought it was time to in
quire why the county committee repre
senting the Republicans in these Congres
sional districts should not have a voice
ln forming the State and Congressional
District conventions. He expressed the
opinion that district commltteemen would
recognize the county committee.
The motion prevailed without a dissent
ing vote. The chair appointed J. C. Zel
lerbach, Lincoln D. McDonald and I. J.
Truman Jr. to act with Alfred Bouvier
and James A. Wilson in expressing tho
wishes of the county committee. The
executive committee adjourned to meet
at the call of the chairman.

CORRIGAN TEACHES THE
PUBLIC A COSTLY LESSON
Duped Horsemen Raise a Howl of Dismay
at the Track of Tanforan.
Four Races Deliberately Given to the Hawthorne
Gambler Without the Semblance of a
Contest
¦
IF the Western Turf Association
of Tanforan seeks to ruin the
California racing game its plans
are well laid. One or two days
more of sport like that of yester
day and a Maxim gun turned on the
betting ring would not kill over six layers
of odds iind twenty-three spectators.
Ilacts were framed to suit Corrigan's
bones with a nakedness that was shame
ful. When Caller McGibben announced
the result of the second event, won gal
loping by Geyser, the bookmakers, who
had been hoodwinked into thinking Zo
roasu-r would be a starter, jeered and
hooted at the result. It was a scene
never before witnessed in a California bet
ting ring. Chimura. Don Quixote and
Wailenstein. which also sported the colors
of Corrigran, were returned winners at
ridiculously short odds.
Such methods as these are not only dis
creditable and Injurious to legitimate rac
ing, but are criminal. Sure-thing gam
blurs would not resort to more dishonor
able scheming with which to fleece the
public and rob them in practically open
a.:id shameless effrontry. Four out of six
races were captured by Corrigan. not
through legitimate means, but by trickery.
The race? were arranged to suit Corri
gan's fancy. They were fixed to meet his
necessities. His horses were sent to the
barrier without competitors, possibly
winners being entered and then scratched
to deceive the public and the bookmakers
alike. One of Corrigan's horses cantered
In a winner by twelve lengths. The affair
would have been a farce had it not been
an outrage.
The nubile saw yesterday the explana
tion of why bo many men become dupes
of the racecourse as Corrigan understands
and manipulates the game. It Is not even
pambling. much less a legitimate sport ln
which s^peed and condition play important
parts. Corrlgun had the day to himseif
and Illustrated that the only privilege left
to the public is to lose its money through
a palpable fraud. An analysis of the rac
ing chart proves that yesterday Corrl
£an's horses did not compete in a single
race, ills horses won four prearranged
frauds for which the public paid the price
in their money and in a lesson in that ex
perience which proverbially costs a great
deal more than it is worth. Corrigan's
colors Hashing first under the winning
wire is the proof of another steal legal
ized by a truculent track management.
The historian of racecourse crimes and
i disasters, deaths and disgraces has con
fined.himself largely to the tragic stories
of the dishonor and death that has come
to clerks, cashiers and uninitiated dupes.
If this sort of thing continues despondent
suicidal horse owners will head the swell
ing list.
Boundlee, from Schreiber's stables, cap
tured his race, starting a 3 to 5 chance,
while Intrada, a second choice, took the
first number. '
A drizzling rain fell throughout the aft
ernoon, and enly a handful of people
journeyed down to the San Mateo County
course.
Corrigan's pair. Artena and Lily Simp
son, were Installed favorites for the two
year-old dash. Intrada, ridden by Bull
man, proved an easy winner, with ! On
Time downing Artena for place honors.
. A 1 to 4 choice, Geyser romped away
from Timemaker and Dr. Marks in the
Btretch. The first named horse gave the
winner a semblance of a contest for half
a rr.Ue, when he closed up and was beaten
twelve lengths.
Nine to twenty was laid against Chi
rnura winning the mile and a half run.
with only Tom Calvert and Anchored to
defeat. The mare won eased up, while
Calvert was hard ridden to get the place
by half a length.
Barney Schreiber's Boundlee outclassed
nls company in the fourth number. The
colt received heavy backing, and -after
petting away from the post none too well
led Genua out with pounds in reserve.
Mary Kinsella ren third.
Then followed the win of Corrigan's
Don Quixote, at six furlongs, ridden by
Spencer. Played fitsm threes down to 7 to
' S? wa - s sent off ln fr °nt. beating Tallac
a 20 to 1 shot, a neck on the wire. Tc r -

before the extensively backed ones Mont

RIGHTS OF CITIZENS
MUST BE PROTECTED
Clash Between Police and Crowds at
Open- Air Meetings Benewed
and Two Arrests Made.
Storekeepers in the vicinity of Market
street and Grant avenue have been pro
testing to the police againEt the crowds
that congregate on the corners nightly,
a* they interfere with their business. On
Sunday night there was a Salvation Army
meeting on one corner, a meeting of so
cialists on the other, and a few yards
farther north a patent medicine vendor
was haranguing a crowd.
Policeman Kramer cleared the sidewalk,
but as soon as he got to another place the
crowd surged back, and finally Kramer
arrested J. D. Mardis for obstructing the
sidewalk. , A crowd followed the officer
and his prisoner to the patrol box and
Mardis characterized his arrest as an out
rage and asked if any citizen would back
him up. William Condon spoke up and
paid he would appear as a witness for
Mardis, and Kramer promptly arrested
him on the charge of interfering with an
officer. . •
The cases were called In Judge .Cabanls*
court yesterday. Mardis said he was
walking past the corner and halted just
for a moment to Bee what was going on
when the officer jostled him roughly and
told him to move on. To his astonish
ment he was grabbed by the collar be
cause he to*u the officer he was "too
quick," and was dragged to the patrol
box. Condon and other witnesses corrob
orated him and the Judge dismissed both
cases. Attorney Ryan, who represented
Mardis, wanted the Judge to rebuke the
officer, but the Judge replied that he was
not a police censor.
Judgment Against Kowalsky.
Judge S. K. Dougherty, sitting in De

MYSTERIOUS SUICIDE
TOSSING IN THE SURF
JOHN JONES and Anthony Taronta, boys residing at 320 Vallejo street,
were on the beach at Lands End yesterday forenoon gathering ' sea
shells and saw the body of a man being tossed about in the heavy
surf that was breaking upon the sandy shore. One of them waded Into (
the breakers and tied a line to one of the wrists of the corpse and they hauled
It up on the sands out of reach of the waves' and notified the life-saving
station near by.
The body was that of a man of apparently. not. more than 30 years of age. .
five feet two or three inches tall, with, a bald forehead, clean-shaven face,
high cheek bones, small aquiline nose with prominent bridge and small (
mouth with thin lips. The eyes were gray or light blue. The deceased was
well dressed in a suit of black cassimere. light stockings and laced tan shoes.
An examination of the corpse at the Morgue disclosed a bullet wound in the
back of the head, between the top of the ears and the top of the skull. There ,
was also a bullet hole in the palate about an inch back of the front teeth.
This was evidently the point of entrance of the bullet, and the hole in the
skull was no doubt the point of exit. These wounds led to the belief that the
deceased committed suicide. From the . appearance of the corpse it was in
ferred that the body had been in the water not more than two or three days.
No person of the description of the dead man has been reported at the Morgue
as missing. There was nothing in the man's pockets that would indicate '
his identity, but his appearance is that of a man in fair circumstances
-An autopsy performed, last, night by Dr. Leland showed that the bullet '
had entered the palate and passed out through the back of -the head This
clearly establishes the theory of suicide, and it Is the. opinion' of the autopsy <
physician that -the man must have placed the muzzle of the gun some dis
tance inside his mouth. The fact that nothing which would give any clew (
as to the Identity of the suicide remains on the body goes to prove that he
made every preparation for the act. (
The pistol has not yet been found, but is supposed to have been covered
up by the sand, and a search will' be made for It. • coverea <
