Wa*ltfnj?toa. The chamber at Km
next meeting; will uaanJmously
ran"f» the report.
Two important matters will be up
fir consideration this afternoon at the
meeting of the directing committee of
SO .if the Panama- Pacific international
exposition. One will be the report
of the special committee on organiza
tion and the other will be a formal
statement regarding the work of the
<-onf*»rence committee which met \u25a0with
representatives of the San* Diego ex- j
position in Los Angeles last Saturday.
C. C. Moore, chairman of the special
conference committee, is expected to
rettiru from L<os Angeles today, and
win report the steps that were taken
>r, the southern city and the results
that arf looked forward to from the
w«rk of the committee.
Members of the exposition committee
who participated in the L.os Angeles
wer«* unanimous yesterday
in declaring that the sentiment in the
south was found greatly favorable to
Sun Francisco as the site of . the
Panama canal celebration. James
riolpl) Jr., president of the Merchants'
fxcliange, said that he had taken a
si«io trip Kouth from Los Angeles and
visited a number of the most prominent
and largest ranchers and fruit grow
ers of thf district, whom he had found
hpttrtily enthusiastic over the San
rranrisro world*** fair project.
Thf report of the committee on or
ganization, which al>=o will bo made
today, will outline the tentative plan
for the subdivision of exposition work j
a ;nong various committees and sub- j
\u25a0 onimittees and also a plan for execu- j
tlve management. In addition to the;
ways and means and directors' com- j
mitt^s now existing, the report will
• all -for the formation of a small execu
tljre committee within the menabership
of the directing body.
Matters of finance, for the time being
«t least, probably will be handled by j
the executive committee, with the aid
of the ways and means committee as a
whole. From the latter committees on
exploitation, publicity and state, fed
eral and foreign participation will be
named without further delay. These
romniitteps will be organized at once
in order that their work may progress
at the same time that the financial
campaign Is in progress.
Another matter of importance to be
considered at this afternoon's meet-
Ing \u25a0will be the selection of a design
for the official exposition seal. The
i ont^Ft has aroused widespread inter
<»«!t 'and about 60 designs have been
(-\u25a0iibmitted for the consideration of the
committee' The special committee in

Women's State Golf Tournament Growing in Interest
Three prominent contestants In the California Women's golf tournament, now in progress on the San "Golf and Country club links.

sorts hy Slattery was rendered hardor
at times by a lack of support on the
part of his friends. The last notable
arrest effected by the officer was that
of Mrs. Maria Kossi. at 255 . Arkansas
street, on the nominal charge of allow
ing musif to l>« played in her place
after 1 o'clock in the morning.
Mrs. Rossi and several of her friends
swore on the stand before the police
commissioners that rilettery was drunk
at the time he made the arrests, and
several officers from the Potrero sta
tion were present also to swear to the
good character of the women con
cerned in the arrest. Some of these
officers were sent out to look for Slat
tery after the alarm was sounded
Monday night. The wounded police
man was found, after. over an hour's
search, lying In a. pool of blood within
500 feet of tho Potrero station.
Acting 1 Captain of Police Patrick
Shea, in command of the Potrero sta
tion, ie authority for the assertion that
Flattery does not drink. Acting Lieu
tenant Perrin and Corporal Patrick
Herlihy declare that they detected the
odor of liquor on Slattery when they
found him.
What is now known of the attack
on Slattery is soon .told and chiefly
concerned in the telling of Jt are two
women. Mrs. May Moll of 610 Tennessee
street and Mrs. • Mary Doherty, who
resides at 604 Nineteenth street, with
in 200 feet of the scene of the assault.
The two Italian prisoners, James Da
vino of 1407 Maripoßa street and I^ouis
Alfano of 15S Texas street, profess to
know little of the affair. They say
that flattery was striking them when
some on* , hit him from behind and
knocked him to the ground. . . They
claim this frightened them so that they
ran away in a frenzy of fear.
Slattery took the two men into cus
tody in the ealoon of G. B. Cuneo at 120
Connecticut street, a place that he had
invaded before. What tho charge
against the men is tha police have not
been able to learn, and the prisoners
declare they do not know. • Having ar
rested the pair, the policeman put them
aboard an Eighth and Eighteenth
•treet car at Connecticut and Mariposa
streets, handcuffed thorn together, and
alighted at Eighteenth and Tennessee
Why he chose to make them alight at
that place and walk. over, two blocks
to the station when he could have con
tinued on tho car with them to Twen
tieth and Kentucky streets, within 100
feet of the'branch Jail, is not clear.
One explanation of this proceeding. Is
that Slattery wished 'to administer some
punishment to the men, when leading
them through a. vacant lot near the po
lice station, before taking them;, to
prison.* In every case the police courts
have been extremely lenient with the
many prisoners Slattery has made in
the district and it has been a cause for
much: comment in the Potrero that no
matter how efficient the patrolman
might; be" the 'police magistrates invar
iably allowed the » offenders to go^free.
Dißgusted with these failures to aid his
efforts Slattery may have decided to ad-,
minister, what, rough punishment ho
could to. the men. feeling certain; that
the police courts would . but prove 'a'
clear avenue, to ', their; freedom. \
Mrs. May Moll also' alighted from ..the
car carrying Slattery and his prisoners
at Eighteenth and Tennessee streets
and her "testimony *. is that* the three
men proceeded along Tennessee; street
without incident until the; trio reached
Nineteenth. \,
"Then I saw something, was the mat
ter,"'.Mrs., Moll Raid; last night,, ','be

cause right there at the corner, where
the church is the men" began to fight.
I heard curses and the sound of blows,
and, though it was dark, I could see
the men struggling. It seemed to me
that there was but the three of them.
I ran down Eighteenth street to Ken
tucky and to the Potrero police station,
where I told them of the fight."
Acting Lieutenant Albert A.- Perrin,
Sergeant Patrick 11. Herlihy and Patrol
man Phillip G. "Welch were on duty,
and. Welch was dispatched to investi
gate the trouble. fie found the two
Italians wandering, along Kentucky
street noar Twentieth, still handcuffed.
One of them, Davino, was bleeding
from a scalp wound, j
Again men were sent out and finally,
after over an hour of searching, Slat
tr-ry was found. There was an ugly
cut on tho right side of his head and"
the man was unconscious. He was ly
ing In a pool of blood in the vacant lot
between Nineteenth and Twentieth
streets, Kentucky and Tennessee, on
the pathway that forms a short cut
to the Potrero station. The policeman
was hurried. to the Potrero emergency
hospital, a block away, and then taken.
to his home, still unconscious.
Davino and Alfano stated." as they
reiterated to detectives later In the
day, that Slattery had attacked them
as they ' entered \u25a0' the vacant lot, and
that some one had stolen up behind the
trio and struck the patrolman in the
head. At that they ran, the assailants
taking one . course and the prisoners
Mrs. Mary Doherty added to the mys
tery surrounding the assault by her
testimony that she saw three men
standing across the .street, during the
fighting in the lit.
"Kill him: kill him!' one of them"
cried," and at that one of the three mon
ran across to the struggling trio. Cries
for help were coming from one of the
fighters, presumably Slattery, and when
the unknown arrived across the street
there came a sudden silence.
George Goldman, who conducts a gro
cery at Nineteenth and Kentucky
streets, declares that two of the three
standing across the street from the
fight and urging the combat on, were

Handicap Matches Beginning
Today Will Bring Out Large
List of Contenders
There was comparatively little ex
citing play in connection with the fifth
annual championship tournament: of
the California women golfers' associa
tion yesterday on the links of the San
Francisco" golf and country club.S
though the first round of the
match play was decided. The post
poning of the consolation tournament,
which ' was scheduled for the after^
\u25a0noon and the fact that one of the four
"matches' scheduled for the first round
was won through default, made the
day a quiet one.
From now until Saturday there will
be action every moment, however, and
as play progresses in the champion
ship event the attendance wiH.improve
materially over that of the. last two
days. The matches in the opening
round as usual were poorly .contested
and entirely lacking; in interest.- Be
.fore any; of them started, there was
little doubt as to who the winners
would be.
The playing -f Miss Edith Chese
brough, as in the qualifying round, was
the feature of the second day of the
tournament. It was a foregone con-,
elusion that she 'would defeat Mrs.
Shields . of the Presidio club, but the'
ease -with- which she accomplished the
feat was hardly looked for. The score
of the match was 9 up and 7, to play.
Mrs. L..1. Scott of the Burlingame
country club and Mrs. Field of the
Claremont country club continued to
show good form and neither -had any
serious trouble in .winning. Mrs. Scott
won^ from. Mrs. -. Hitchcock ,by a score,
of 6 up and 5 to play, and Mrs. Field
won from Miss McEnery by a similar
score. ' The pl a yi n S' of all of .' the con
testant.^ was an Improvement over the |
previous day. : • • \u25a0
One of the disappointments of the I
tournament ;. was the withdrawal \u25a0• of
Mrs. ' Walter .5... Martin, who, Was
thought to have a good chance of , win
ning the ''championship. Mrs. Martin
turned in the fourth best score in the
qualifying round and, was scheduled to
meet Mrs. Gunn in, the first round yes
terday,, hut the match-went to the lat
ter through; default..
The second; round of, the champion
ship tournament will* be played .this
.morning ;and the ; players will - oppose
eachv other as " follows: vMiss Cheise

,vs. Miss Florence Ives: Miss Alice llager.
vs. Mrs. J. R. 'Clark: -"Mrs;- Gunh vs. Mrs.

a good one and the winner should have;
little trouble reaching the final round;
of the championship competition. Miss
Hager is playing well at present and
is looked upon as the likely winner of
her match. - The Mrs. Sherwood-Mrs.

victory for Mrs. Sherwood.
The first of the handicap events of
the week will be played this afternoon
and will no doubt bringout all of- the
players who originally entered the
tounfament. .."With 32 players in the
competition some good golf should re

in the qualifying round of the cham

The American Excess
Of Good Living
The Principal Cause of the Great Pre-
valence of Indirection and Dyspepsia
A Trial I'nrkacr of StnartN Dyspepsia
Tablets Sent Free. .
Man inhabits every part of the glob«
where external Influences cun be sue*
cessfully resisted. Food is an impor-
tant element In effecting this, and na-
ture has provided (or it accordingly.
The colder the climate the more animal
food and oily substances are required;
the warmer a preponderance of vege-
tables and fruits is necessary in one'd
The %thale-bluhber of the fur-clad
Kskimo, and the rice of 'the nude
.African, are as much necessities of lo-
cality as matters of choice. The saniQ
indications exist in civilization. Thus,
the diet In America and England is es-
sentially different from that in Italy,
Spain and Esypt.
The effects of universal communica-
tion are nowhere more ohvious^han on
the luxurious tahle. To furnlshMhe re-
tined cuisine, all climates, both sea and
land, are ' laid under contribution, and
the stomach is expecte-1 to digest with-
out assistance everything that la put
into it. Combining together such varied
products, and the neglect of the cela-.
tion betweei* climate and foods, arc*
very active causes of dyspepsia.
The heavy substantial dishes oC thia
climate accord badly with the ther-«
mometer at ninety degrees; and an -In-
flexibility in regulating the kind ami
quantity of food is a cause of a large*
proportion -of the . ill health and
stomach troubles among the Koglisix
and Americans. ' .
..- Thousands of people who have suf-
fered from stomach troubles, and <*\u25a0
general ill-health resulting therefrom,
because of* a badly regulated diet, and
the ingesting of an excessive amount
of food at the table, have obtained
speedy and permanent relief by means
of a simple expedient — that of usins
TABLETS after each meal, or" when-
ever any of the well-known symptoms
of indigestion are present.
These powerful digestive tablets con-
tain every element that exists in thu
stomach to digest the food, and la tha
exact proportion as found therein.
They take the place of the natural di-«
gestlve juices when the latter are de-
ficient in quality or quantity, and clo>
their work for them, removing the In-
digestion by digesting the food, and
resting, strengthening and purifying
the digestive tract. " .
There is no- other digestive remedy-
on the market which has been found
equal to Stuarfs Dyspepsia Tablets;
none which is so rapidly and power-
fully efficient, or which removes dis-
comfort, banishes stomach-pain, and
relieves and cures all of the symptoms
of dyspepsia and indigestion in so
thorough and pleasant a manner a*
these marvelous little tablets, a single
grain of which is capable of digesting
3 000 grains of any and every kind oC
food. : •

stomach troubles of any kind should

short time.' Purchase a box from your
