International Polo Trophy Offered
by the Coronado Country Club
R. A. Smyth
Thr offlcialF of the Coronaao Country
Club have fulfilled their promise of of
fering for competition the finest polo
trophy for which horsemen of any land
have ever competed. This rich prize
lias been completed by Shreve & Co.
from special designs, and will be the
center about which b.ll the polo compe
tition will revolve at Coronado when
ihe cportsmen gather in that garden
spot In March. The trophy stands
nearly four feet in height. It Is ex
pected that before it finally becomes
the property of any club many interna
tional matches will have been played.
The globe surmounting the trophy Is
of eighteen karat gold, three and a ha!f
Inches in diameter. Upon this appear
the hemispheres In raised etching, de
noting the international character of
the competition. It is supported by two
eagles standing back to back with out.
stretched wings. These are intended to
typify the American character. Below
this Is a delicate florid scroll work. The
cfrcle of disks is of California quartz
In as great variety as can be found.
The words "International Polo Cham-
pionship" are in gold circling the entire
cup. Beneath these are four gold pan
els, upon three of which will appear
polo scenes, while upon the fourth will
b« Inscribed the purpose of the cup and
the conditions of Its presentation. Be
neath this appears a shield of the
Coronado Country Club, containing the
colors of the club in enamel. Surround
ing these in gold and enamel are sprays
of laurel and oak leaves.
The trophy has two large handles of
ornate scroll work. The stem has a
•<lrcle of quartz disks similar to the
large band at the top. The general
scheme of the decoration is of the
Italian renaissance, delicate florid scroll
circles, acanthus leaves and flutes. Tlie
pedestal is of California redwood burl,
upon which are applied twelve shields

ly winnings. The total height of the
trophy Is forty-three Inches and the
width from handle to handle is sixteen
Inches. The pedestal is seventeen and a
half inches In diameter. The cost ap
proximates $5000.
While teams of various countries are
expected to compete for this trophy,
one of the conditions under which it is
offered Is that Bt least one team from
without the borders of California must
play In the tournaments In which It is
offered. There is already one valuable
trophy, the John D. Spreckels cup, open
to the poloists of this State, and the
intention of the Coronado Country Club
officials, donors of the present cup, is to
give It the mark of international com

American Cars Will Predominate in
the Auto Speed Trial* ,
NEW YORK, Jan. 15.— Racing talk
In relation to the automobile speed
trials to take place at Ormond Beach,
Fla.. next week, was rife at the show
in Madison Sauare Garden last night,
especially after W. P. Morgan, man
ager of the coming meet, announced
the. entries.' Twenty races have been
arranged, and American cars will
predominate. There will be lively
competition In the touring car classes.
Only two large foreign automobiles
will compete. These will be the
100-horsepower French machine that
\u25a0won the Vanderbllt cup last year and
the 60-horsepower French, car that
won the cup in 1905. Wagner, the
winner of the race last year, will
again drive the former, .while B. Ste
rens, owner of the latter, probably
will act as his own cTiauffeur.
Neither of these cars will compete
for the two-mlJe-a-mlnute speed
crown honors. The only entries for
that race are a small &00-pound car
and a new steamer, which was built
for competition In the Vanderbllt cup
race. The 200-mlle race has three
entries — a French car and two Amer
ican cars.

with him a considerable sum of money.
Upon retiring for the night he placed
the }630 in an old shoe some one had
left in the room and put his "strong
box" under the bed. In the morning
he left the hotel hurriedly and forgot
his cash until passing through Dlxon,

Death Warrant Is Signed
for Second. ;Time 4 for Mur
derer of Joseph Blaise
Unless a Certificate of probable cause
on which an appeal to: the * Supreme
Court may be • based be signed \u2666 before
March 22 by some Justice of the Su
preme Court or the Governor intervene
Leon Soder will be hanged on. that day
at San Quentin for the murder of his
brother-in-law, Joseph Blaise. The
death sentence . was ' pronounced on
Soder for the second , time 'by Judge
Carroll Cook yesterday.
Soder was found . guilty of having
killed Blaise after Insuring the lat
ter's life, the imputed motive for the
crime being his -desire: to collect the
insurance. Soder himself induced
Blaise to come to this country, and
the murder was committed one night
while Blaise was under the influence
of liquor. The crime was a brutal one,
the man's body' being , found the
lowing morning In a deep cut at the
foot of Russian Hill.
Soder appealed from the Judgment
of the Superior Court, In which he had
been ordered to pay the " penalty '. for
his crime with his life, but the;judg
ment was recently sustained by,. the
Superior Court, and yesterday was set
for the passing of , sentence' a second
time. ,~
The date set for Soder's execution
Is the same as "that set for the hang
ing of Joseph Feld, former policeman
and wife-murderer, whose sentence
was commuted, to life imprisonment by
Governor Pardee as one of his last
acts before retiring from office. .
General Edward S. Salomon and At
torney J. J. Guilfoyle, \u25a0 counsel for
Soder, made an ineffectual attempt
yesterday to defeat Assistant District
Attorney Hanley's motion' for a res
toration of records In the ease on the
contention that the act of the Legis
lature providing for the restoration
of court records was unconstitutional.
Hanley's motion was made as a formal
preliminary to the passing of sentence
and was granted by the court. ..
The argument advanced by Soder's
attorneys was that the records were
restored on a" copy of a copy, Instead
of on a copy of the original papers in
the case, .which were burned, and that
the act to restore records was uncon
stitutional in that it provided for the
restoration of court records and not
for the restoration of Judicial records.
A line to distinguish the two was
drawn by Attorney Guilfoyle.
Judge Cook declared that a court
had an inherent -right to take judicial
cognizance of its own records, regard
less* of the legislative act, and ordered
that th«.. records stand restored under
this right. An appeal from this de
cision was filed, but; Judge Cook-over
ruled a motion for a certificate of
probable cause and. unless such cer
tificate be granted by some Justice of
the Supreme Court and ; the case again
taken to that court for consideration
prior to March 22 the sentence pro
nounced yesterday will be executed.

O 'Neil Ignores Order of Su
preme Court and Allows
Collins to' Go at Large
In open defiance of both, the Su
perior^ and. Supreme , court*, Sheriff
O'Xell has ' allowed George D. .Collins
to go at large. , ,The convicted at
torneyv. ha* been permitted to '; apend
n la rife part,' of hlit time ' about . the
law library In the t Temple .'lsrael, and
the \u25a0 Sheriff x; ha* > laid hlmwelf h open .to
criminal prosecution on a charge for
ivliich * the penalty 1* ton
year*' '.' Imprisonment 'or' a fine' o£
$10,000. ' ,
Sheriff O'Neil's act'vis defined by the
Penal Code as permitting an 'escape,
and the punishment therefor is made
severe. Nor is it .without a falrwarn
ing that the Sheriff has -opened the
doorways of the jail • for. the * free
passage to and fro of a man, sup
posed to be held in custody pending
an appeal from a penitentiary sen
tence. Ball has been refused Collins,
yet he walks the streets unmolested
or sits in the law library as a free
man. \u25a0 ' -. '
: Collins was at liberty on Monday
with :no other guard • than an j oblig
ing deputy from the Sheriff's office.
The prisoner . was free to ' remain .at
large until he himself wished to re
turn to his cell. Assistant District
Attorney William Hoff Cook made an
objection, and was told by Sheriff
O'Nell that he' had an order allow
ing Collins to go to the law library
as he pleased. O'Nell could not state
from what 4 court this . order had been
issued, but'even if such, order exists
or was made by any Superior Judge
it is without effect - under a ' ruling
by the Supreme Court on July 2 of
last year.
On July 2 H. N. Pederson, who
wished to ; have Collins appear' in a
case as his attorney, .petitioned the
Supreme ' Court for a writ of mandate
to force the Superior Court to allow
the prisoner his liberty for that pur
pose. The writ was denied, and the
Judgment of the Supreme Court was
plain and positive in its meaning. It
not only declared that Collins could
not be given liberty at any time, by
the Sheriff, but that he could not
be granted such liberty even on order
of the Superior Court. /
The judgment of the Supreme Court
quotes section ICOO of the Penal Code,
which, reads:
"A. prisoner committed to the Coun
ty Jail for trial or "for examination,
or .upon conviction ror' a public of
fense, must be actually confined In
the County Jail until he Is discharged;
and if\he is permitted to go at large
out of the Jail, except by virtue of a
legal order or process, it is an es
Continuing, the; judgment of the
Supreme Court was, in , part, as fol
"Collins Is, therefore, to be con
fined In the County Jail, and the Sher
iff can have no authority of his own
motion to permit him' to appear In
any court or elsewhere or to allow
him tol.go outside of the jail, for any
purpose. If' the Sheriff does voluntar
ily permit, him. to go outside, either
with or without an escort, the Sheriff
himself Is guilty of permitting an
escape.''. \u25a0
The, decision also adds that there
is no authority jf or the Superior ' Court
to allow, the prisoner, to go at : large
without bail: The penalty for per
mitting an; escape, in : the language
of section \u25a0; 108 ;of . the ;-: penal Code, , : "Is
punishable by Imprisonment ' in - the
State prison not exceeding' ten years
and fine not exceeding 510,000.".
The District Attorney's office, has
entered objection after objection, but
without avail, to- the leniency 'that
has been shown Collins, and has twice
made such' objections .matters of court
record. 'District Attorney Langdon
stated yesterday that he would : not
take the Initiative in a prosecution
against Sheriff O'Neil unless a com
plaint was filed, but that he deemed
the matter of importance enough to
warrant serious action.

practically completed the presentation
of Its case before; the; lnterstate; Com
merce ".Commission; today." The rail
roads and Intervening coast cities which
are opposing, Spokane's. plea for lower
rates will have their, hearing tomorrow
morning. -;•'":;' .--, > :
One of the most interesting questions
raised at the | hearing 'was as to -who
would derive the benefits; of the lower
rates, ; the Jobbers : of Spokane \or . the
consumers. Larue Perrln sof the Spo
kane Dry Goods Company,"; a wholesale
concern) testified that it was the policy
of that company when granted reduced
rates to give' the; benefits immediately
to "the consumers. 1 B." L. Gordon, -a
wholesale, grocer,', followed, and ; in the
course iof a colloquy -between Stephens,
the attorney . for Spokane,' and some of
the : ; railroad attorneys j Stephens de^
clared that the fight waged by, the Spo

marily for v the' consumers and only sec
ondarily; for the jobbers..
When Gordon was asked what would
be the policy of his firm-in this respect
If he had lower freight rates, Com^
missloner 'Prouty, interrupted : to say
that *it was t not worthY while to pur
sue that line of Inquiry 'as:' the com
mission' hnd 1 repeatedly - held- that !\u25a0 the
reduction in rate was 'to give the bene
fit-to ' tho" consumers, 'as .'competition
brought this ; about, even though *' the
Jubbers might . have .been' disposed at
first' to take themselves the profits at
tending rate reductions.
Gordon testified 1 that- the rate on
'sugar from the Corblnßeet Sugar Fac
tory •at ' Waverly. : .Wash., ( about thirty
miles from Spokane,' was 14' cents until
the building of the" Spokane and Inland
Empire Electric :: System into the * Pa

George Martin Lukesh. U. S. N., yielded
to- the pressure brought to bear upon
him by -the naval set on Mare Island,
and ; rather than face a trial for con
duct "unbecoming an officer and a gen
tleman, wired his resignation to the
Navy Department at Washington this
afternoon. . \u25a0 "*\u25a0
The resignation was forwarded
through -official circles, which means
that Rear Admiral Henry "W. Lyon. the
commandant of the station, and the of
ficer who arrested Lukesh last week at
the yard while the paymaster was
drunk, sent the wire through lils office.
It is the opinion here that owing to
Lekesh's high connections in the East
the resignation will be accepted and
'the . closed.
. Lukesh was -tried at Cavlte last
spring for disrobing in a public dining
place . and was reduced ten numbers.
The story is circulated here that Lu
kesh knew ex-President McKinley and
Mark Hanna and that friends of these
two former statesmen saved Lukesh
from dismissal from the navy when
he was court-martialed previously.

RENO. Jan. 13. — At 9:30 o'clock this
morning the local power station was
destroyed by fire, cutting off the light

be obtained.
Added to this is the fact that the
water company gave notice yesterday
to consumers to be as sparing as pos
sible in the use of water, as there wero
several bad breaks in the ditches which
might result In the water supply being
entirely cut off.
