It'lej iiite well known that C. M. Hays,

PASADENA, Dec. 30.— Stanford apd
Michigan are ready to step upon
the gridiron on New Year's day
and make the battle of their rives.
Every man is in splendid physical
shape and is playing his game. Stanford
is supremely confident that the Wolver
ines will not have a walk-over. They will
dispute every inch of the distance and if
Coach Yost's men score ' a touchdown it
will be on its merits alone.
On the other hand the Michigan eleven
expects to keep up the admirable work it
has done this season by piling up a big
score against the cardinal.. The men have
become acclimated and are feeling in
grand fettle. They have discarded the
peculiar shoes they have used in playing
in the snow and are able to get over the
ground much faster. This is particularly

Coach Yost thought at first that it would
be unwise to have his men play without
cleats as they were accustomed to them.
On Christmas day the men lined up in
this/ city. They started so fast in getting
into play that they broke their cleats in
the soft sand. To avoid accidents of this
kind the players have tried the regula
tion shoe with better success. '
Michigan seems to possess even greater
speed than the Carlisle Indians. Spec
tators of the notable Indian-California
game two years ago marveled at the speed
with which the red men went into every
play. Yost has developed even greater
speed. His men behind the line start
from a sprint position and in a twinkling
of the eye they form tandem and plunge
through the line or around the ends for
many yards. While the wedge is barred

DEFINES LAKE
COUNTY MINES
Aubury Brings Out First
of Long Expected,
The State Mining Bureau yesterday re
ceived from the State Printing Office at
Sacramento the first copy of a register
of the mines and minerals of Lake
County, which was prepared under the
direction of State Mineralogist Aubury.
Some curiosity has been manifested con
cerning this register, which Is the first of
a series of ten which will, severally, ex
ploit L-ake, San Diego, El Dorado, Placer,
Ainadcr, Santa Barbara and Shasta coun
ties in an entirely, new and practical way
for the .benefit of all concerned in mining
as operators or investors. With the Lake
County register is a map upon which are
figures showing the exact locality of min
eral1 deposits mentioned in the register.
The register and map are, therefore, sup
plementary. Each successive register will
be accompanied by a map. -The introduc
tion to the register of Lake County indi
cates the general scope of the work un
dertaken. In part it is as follows:
: The Register of Mines ' and Minerals of the
State of California, issued by the State Mining
Bureau, is intended to give information con
cerning the gold mines — quartz, hydraulic,
dritt, placer, etc.— as well as a list of mills
and arrastras. and also to give corresponding
information relating to each of the mineral
substances mined or commercially utilized In
the State. This forms both a State and county
directory of the mines of California, the reg
ister being 'so printed that each - v county is
represented in a separate pamphlet. .The reg
ister wlir answer for the emdanee of thoss
who want" to. look at any particular mine or
to learn tlie essential facts concerning it. Xo
accompany- the printed " register is a topo-
Kraphieal map -of each county. , showing all
mineral locations, . etc. ■ These maps are on the
scale of two miles to one inch. .The mines
are numbered in the table and a corresponding
number tm; the. map indicates the : exact loca
tion. One may find from this, approximately,
how far he must go from any specified town or
station to reach any particular mine and may
, learn the location of railroads, trails, roads,
etc. ■ , . .it.
The Lake County register has a pre
liminary summary of the mineral re
sources of the county, and this is fol
lowed by a tabulation In which the min
ing deposits are enumerated and de
scribed with considerable detail. Prom th«
table it appears that Lake County has
sixteen quicksilver mines, four copper
mines, one onyx deposit, one chrome iron
deposit, two iron mines and one oil well,
i ne quicksilver mines are nearest the fol
lowing places: Sulphur Creek, In Colusa
County; Middletown.TLower Lake, Quick
silver Knoxville and Lakeport. in Lake
County, respectively. The one oil well is
near Lakeport. The extraordinary rich

DRUNKEN FATHERS MUST.
PROVIDE FOR CHILDREN"
Judge Fritz Has Been Successful it*.
Bringing Two Male Parents
to Time.
Judge Fritz has for the second- time
played the role of protector for chil
dren who are neglected by their male
parent, and he feels proud of tho
achievement. A week ago Joseph Thomp
son, a longshoreman, residing on Perry
street, between Harrison and Bryant, was
brought before him for getting drunk and
neglecting his family by wasting all his
wages. The Judge made him promise to
take the pledge and in future give his
wife enough money to support her and
ihe children, and continued the case for a
week. Yesterday Mrs. Thompson ap
peared in court and said that her husband
had taken the pledge and had not tasted
a drop since, giving her all the . money
she needed. The Judge continued the case
for another two weeks to Ee?'how Thomp
son behaved himself.
Yesterday he had a similar case before
him. Christian Peterson, a longshoreman,
was charged by a neighbor. Mrs. Mar
garet McClenegan, 504 Greenwich street,
with frequenting saloons and not provid
ing for his four young children, who were
produced in court. They had to depend
upon the neighbors for support. The
Judge made Peterson promise to go to
work at once and totally abstain from
liquor for a week, and to bring him a
strict account next Monday of what he
had earned and what he had spent for
necessaries. The case was continued till
then.
Laborer Gets His Trunk.
Justice of the Peace Daniels gave judg
ment yesterday in favor of Robert Wad
dell, who sued James Gately, a Potrero
bcarding-house keeper, and the Risdon
Iron Works for the recovery of a trunk
retained by Gately. Waddell came here
from the East under contract to labor
for the iron works, but deserted his po
sition after one day. Gately refused to
give Waddell his trunk until he had paid
for hl.s^fare from the Kast. Justice Dan
iels now orders the return of the trunk
or its equivalent in value. . .

SAVES WIDBER
ANOTHER TRIAL
Motion to Dismiss the
Second Indictment
Is Granted.
The second indictment against A. C.
Widber, ex-City Treasurer, charging him
with the embezzlement of $13,000 of the
city funds, was, on motion of Attorney
Pelxotto, for the defendant, dismissed by
Judge Cook yesterday on the ground that
the sixty days during which the trial
should have been held had elapsed. The
point was made in view of the decision of
the Supreme Court in the Bergerot case
from ban Jose.
The Judge in granting the mAtion said
he would like to have the point decided
upon by the Supreme Court, but the Dis
trict Attorney says he is doubtful if hf
can appeal in view of the fact that the
indictment was dismissed, which practi
cally ends the matter. It the indictment
had been quashed it would have been dif
ferent. - ,
When Widber was sentenced to eight
years in San Quentin, about three years
ago, the second charge was put on th>»
reserve calendar without objection, so
that in the event of Widber being released
on parole he could be tried again on that
charge.

SUPREME COURT SEALS
FATE OF SPECULATOR
T.ulare County Man Tries to Maka
Too Much Out of Squirrel
Bounty.
The Supreme' Court decided yesterday
that John A. Howard of Visalia must be
punished for attempting to : obtain the
bounty for dead squirrels offered by Tu
lare County, on rodents' tails Imported
from Alameda County. v
The animals became such a pest , to
farmers that the Board of Supervisors
decided to offer a bounty of 3 cents each
for their destruction. It was provided
that the tails of the squirrels must be
produced and that an affidavit must be
presented stating that they were killed
in Tulare* County. The. people of Visalia
and ; vicinity l soon exhausted the supply
of squirrels^ and Howard went over into
Alameda ( County - and/ collected 12,000 of
the necessary „• tails. He and two : friends
presented the evidence and. made affidavit
that. the animals had been killed within
county limits. - One of the friends finally
in and get the runner in better style.
Stanford engaged in secret practice to
day. The boys went into the game with
a will and played splendidly. Signals
were given with a snap and the play was
executed in faultless style. Coach Fick-
confessed where the squirrel tails had
been secured and arrests followed.
Howard was tried on the charge of at
tempting to obtain money by false pre
tenses and was convicted. He appealed,
but, the Supreme Court holds that h'.s
punishment is just.

Presidio Disturbers Decide to Save
Their Fighting Energies for the
Philippines.
The persuasive arguments of the police
and post guards have evidently been ef
fective in quelling the disorder at the
Presidio and the neighborhood, has re
sumed its customary appearance of peace
and quiet. Additional guards have been
placed at all points where disturbances
might reasonably be expected to arise and
an all-night patrol of fifty men has been
established, so that there can be no loi
tering on the streets after taps.
Corporal White has been identified as
one of the ringleaders of the mob and he
isat present in the guardhouse awaiting
such punishment as a general court-mar
tial may see fit to give him. Charles
Newak, an unasslgned cavalry recruit, is
said to have taken an active part In in
citing his comrades to riot and he also
will probably.be given an opportunity to
repent of his untimely belligerency..
"CHINESE IN TBANSIT"
FBATJD IS DETECTED
Mongolian Immigrants Mention Fic
titious Firms in Mexico as Their
Future Employers.
The lack of good faith on the part of
Chinese Immigrants seeking to pass
through this country on their way to
Mexico was forcibly illustrated yesterday
in the case of three coolies who swore be
fore the Chinese Bureau that they were
en route to a town in Mexico, near the
border line, under contract to work for
three firms, of which they gave the
names. - Something in their manner
aroused the suspicions of the Chinese Bu
jeau and they were denied a landing.
In the . meantime Customs Collector
Stratton addressed a confidential letter to
the American Consul in tho Mexican town
named, inquiring 'whether there were
such firms there as were mentioned by
the Chinese. The Collector received a
reply yesterday informing him that no
such firms existed and never had. The
Chinamen will be deported.
Coast Boad Forfeits Franchise.
The Board of Public Works Informtv.1
the Board of Supervisors yesterday that
no work has been done by the Bay and
Coast Railway Company, as required by
the franchise granted May 25, 1901. and
ordinances numbers 316 and 247.' Under
the charter the company was to have ex
pended $25,000 in construction work by
September. 1901, and as it has not done
so the franchise will now be forfeited.

Dave Brown of Stanford will referee j
the game and in all probability Bert
Oliver, the giant Reliance guard, will act I
as umpire. Brown has been an official of !
some kind in every big football contest. ■
He was at one time Stanford's best mile j
runner. He is well up in the rules and I
should prove a capable man. He is the |
choice of both teams. Oliver's excellent
decisions in the last intercollegiate game
v/on him the approval of the victors and
'vanquished. He acted justly to both sides
and his gentlemanly manner and coolness
won him the admiration of students in j
both colleges. ■
Every seat for the coming contest has
been sold and standing room will be at
a premium. The grand stand will accom
modate 3000 people; but if it were twice
its size it would r.ot contain the people j
who are anxious to see the contest.

MAY NOT PAVE
MISSION ROAD
City Attorney Lane Says'
the Procedure Is
Illegal.
City Attorney Lane advised the Board
of Works yesterday that the Board of Su
pervisors had no power to authorize the
expenditure of 113,000 upon the paving Oi.
Mission street from Silver avenue to
Onondaga avenue and advises that, the
bids therefor be- considered as void and
that the check deposited be returned.
This opinion will be unwelcome news to
the property owners along the line of the
proposed improvement who subscribed
Wo.OOC for the purpose, the city appropriat
ing a like sum. The opinion says:
The city, under the charter, cannot expend
its funds for the pavement of an unaccepted
street. Nor can the city expend more than
$10,000 per year for the improvement of county
roads, if there be any such roads within the
limits of the municipality. Therefore, what
ever Mission street may be, whether county
road or city street, there was no power in the
Board of Supervisors to authorize the expendi
ture of $13,000 for the work proposed and no
power In the Beard of Public Works to call
for bld3 therefor.
The proposed street work involved herein is
Important and necessary and it may be that
by following: another line of, procedure it can
be done by the city, but the procedure taken
ha3 not been such as the law countenances.

will not meet, and that, according to tho
articles of agreement, is the chance that
Sharkey is defeated by Peter Maher in
their bout in Philadelphia in the third
week of January. The bout will be de
clared off should Sharkey succumb to
Maher.
PITZSrMMONS MAY BOX HEBE.
Yosemite Athletic Club Trying to
Match the Blacksmith Against
Jeffries.
The Yosemite Athletic Club, which has
secured the Jeffries-Sharkey fight for
March, promises to be the leading bidder
for big matches nest year. At Its head is
Sol Levison. Among the gentlemen who
are said to have an interest in the new
organization 13 Harry Corbett. James C.
Kennedy, matchmaker of the Twentieth
Century Club, which brought oft many
important bout3 during tha past year,
will act in the same capacity for the new
club.
Kennedy may not be overpopular on this
coast, but it is a fact that boxers of abil
ity place implicit reliance in his word and
judgment. He is really the only man who
can induce Fitzsimmons to re-enter the
ring, and he is now using every effort to
get the blacksmith to box in this city.
If he succeeds Jeffries and Fitzsimmons
will battle here for the championship in
February.
The Yosemite Athletic Club now has a
bona fide membership, and as socn as Its
gymnasium is completed Levison will ap
ply for a charter and license.
