caused First Officer Matthews of the
schooner La Girondo to fall overboard and
lose his life yesterday. A boat was low

the rate of five miles an hour and all ef

The engineers of the Empress of Japan
were not s-'atisiled with the result, how
ever, and they challengedthe crew of the
China to race them to Nagasaki. The
challenge was taken up and the firemen
on the China bet their shirts on the re
sult. Coal was not spared during that run
and in consequence the China averaged
fceve'nteen knots throughout the trip and
won easily. In fact, the Empress of Ja
pan had not arrived . wnen the China
sailed, and the crew of the latter vessel
will have to collect their bets when next
the mail, boats meet. ,.
In her last run the China upheld her
reputation as the fastest steamer on the

Chief Clerk Emmrich of the. Quarter
master's Department Charged
"With Being Bartholo
mew's Partner.
Ernst Emmrich, chief clerk - in the
United States Quartermaster's Depart
ment, was arrested yesterday morning by
United States Marshal Shine on a charge
of having conspired with J. W. Bartholo
mew, secretary of the American Box Fac
tory, to defraud the. United States out of
large sums of money appropriated by Con
gress for the army of the XTnlted State?.
The "large sum of money" mentioned In
the complaint is $374 35. which it is alleged
Bartholr ftew on the 30th of January, lS-TD.
obtalnedT>y presenting to the quartermas
ter's department of the United States
army a false and fraudulent bill of the
American Box Factory for merchandise.
The complainant Is R. P. Merrllon.
Emmlrch has been chief clerk In the
quartermaster's department for twenty
five years. He says the matter arose out
of a clerical irregularity that has pre
vailed for the past twenty-five years in
the department and that the Government
had not been defrauded out of anything.
He was released on giving bonds In the
sum of J3000,
United States District Attorney Coombs
said yesterday that he was not going to
take the Bartholomew and Emmrich cases
before the Federal Grand Jury, but would
have them tried before' United States
Commissioner Heacock. so that all the
facts might become the property of the
FEW vessels hav^. had more narrow
escapes in as short a space of time
as the United States transport
Grant. The last round trip to the
Philippines has been a succession of nar
row escapes, and it is only due to the
vigilance of the officers that the transport
finally reached port.
Soon after leaving San Francisco one
of her Inlet valves became clogged and
the water rushing in filled the engine
room until the fires under the lower boiler
were drowned cut and the engineers and
firemen were working up to their waists
In water.
While the run to San Francisco was
under way the man on the lookout ran
up against a mirage. He thought land
was straight ahead and so reported It to
the bridge. The officer on watch saw an
outline looming up and as It was appar
ently capped by a light he gave the signal
to stop the ship and sent for the captain.
The Grant was in the vicinity of Reed
Rocks, the position of which is doubtful,
their place on the chart of the globe being
followed by a ouery mark. When, there
fore, the fog bank took on the appear
ance of the Farallone Islands and the
morning star showed up like a beacon on
its peak, the lookout thought the land was
dead ahead, so the engines were stopped
and reversed and the ship was going. full
speed astern when Captain Buford reach
ed the bridge. It did not take long to
discover the mistake and in half an hour
the Grant was once more on her course.
Reed Rocks have not been seen since
1SGS, when the ship Yankee nearly ran
them down. They have always been
classed as "doubtful," and the chances
are that the old Yankee skipper was
fooled by the morning star and a cloud,
as was the lookout on the Grant.
From Honolulu to Manila and from
there to Nagasaki the voyage of the
Grant was uneventful. The run from
Nagasaki to San Francisco made up for
the monotony, however. When about nve
days from San Francisco lire broke out in
the engine-room. Escaping ammonia was
ignited by a spark from the pipe of a
careless engineer, and in a few moments
the engine-room was In a blaze. A nre
alarm was turned in. and about three
minutes later Chief Officer Crosky had
three streams of water playing on tho
flames and every man on the transport
was at his place." It was a close call and
the men on the vessel were still busy
repairing damages when the ship docked
yesterday. _,
In spite of all her mishaps the Grant
came into dock yesterday looking as spick
and span as a yacht, and she will bo
ready to sail on July 1. ,

boundless wealth and unlimited resources ' of
California. I would therefore invite the earnest

In this connection it is earnestly desired that

uniform for use In the parade apart ¦ from 'the

great uniformity in this respect will be avoided.

Bridges in Glen Park.
The Mayor recently sent a communica
tion to the Board of Public- -Works- in
which he stated that in his Judgment the
bridges In Glen Park were not strong
enough to carry the crowds, and requested
an inspection of the same. Chief Engi
neer Grunsky reported that the two
bridges farthest north, being the second

General Opinion Is That the Present
Force Is Utterly Inadequate
to Cope With the Situ
Men Under Carter and Wil
kinson Meet With a
Serious Reverse.
ACCRA. Gold Coast. June 12.— Details
have been received here of another seri
ous reverse to the relief column under
Colonel Carter and Major Wilkinson a
day's march north of the Prah.
There were heavy casualties. The latest
rumors report a further disaster to a de
tachment on the nonh bank of the Prah,
•which Is now flooded, and where the
Ashantis were found strongly intrenched.
Colonel WiMcock'p advance has been de
layed by rains, which have destroyed the
bridges on the Prahsu road. The con
tinued absence of news from Kumassie
tends to ccntirm the pessimistic views as
to the safety of the Governor and his
Ftaff. The coast towns are apprehensive
of their own safety.
The Hrit!sh gunboat Magpie, stationed
at Accra, is the sole protection for th»
coast. Owing to the difficulty encountered
In procuring carriers the enforcement of
a labor ordinance Is thr^a toned, but such
a step is considered inadvisable In view of
the present temper of the inhabitants and
the unprotected condition of thf colony.
The general opinion is that the -'present
force is Inadequate to eopp with the situa
tion and the local government apparently
fails to recognize its gravity.

at Frank Payne's tamale cafe In Sausa

may rob It of its real character. The

are difficult to find. 'Heretofore women

some forty, women of all ages and classes
were on hand and ' made business brisk
with their many bets. The opponents of

More State Aid.
President Wheeler presented a re
port of the committee of the Coun

gard to a plan for improving the finan

ing more liberal State aid through a tax
on Incorporations and a small inheritance
tax. This report was signed by George
Edwards, Gaston E. Bacon, L. de F.
Bartlett, William E. Ritter and Charles
W. Slack. At the conclusion of the read
ing of the report. Regent Foster asked
that a copy of the report be -sent to each
Regent as it was a matter of,. Importance
and should be studied before action was
taken. Regent Houghton thought the
plan ought to be brought to the public's
attention at once so that It Would appre
ciate the needs of the university. State
Superintendent of Instruction Kirk said
he concurred heartily with what Regent
Poster said and thought the matter should
be turned over to a committee to examine
the plan and report at a future meeting.
A motion was made that a committee of
three be appointed and Chairman Wallace
named Regents Foster, Slack and John E.
After a large number of bills had been

taKen up. v Regen» Reinsteln was of the
opinion that care should be taken in pass-
Ine upon the financial statement and he
asked President Wheelpr what his views
were In the matter. The latter refrained
from answering, as he saw that he could
not stay its postponement. He did say
that he was, goinK Kast to-night on.busi
ness for the university and -would be gone
a month. Mr. Reinsteln, therefore, made
a motion that the consideration of the
budget be postponed until a special meet
ing to be held on July 24. The motion pre
