DOG TRUST'S BARK LIDS IT IN COURT W. G. Rockefeller, August Bel* mont and Other Millionaires Sued by Western Breeder "Combine" Accused of Robbing Blue Blooded Beasts of Their Noble Ancestry In the firm belief that the bark of the American kennel club is worse than its legal bite, the National dog breed ers' association, a rival organization •which has been gTowling and snapping et the other for some time past, threw hesitancy to the winds yesterday and vailed in for a finish fight, bringing *uit for $1,500 damages on the strength nf the Sherman anti-trust act in the federal court and formally complaining to the United States district attorney that the American kennel club is a trust in restrain of trade. The suit is brought through TV. E. Chine, k doe fancier of San Francisco, and the complaint made by Henry B. I-ister. ' an attorney and president of the Marin kennel association. The lat ter asks that warrants be issued for the arrest of the officers, who include August Belmont. William O. Rockefel ler Jr.. a nephew of the oil magnate; Howard Wiliets; K. K. Bloodgood. J. W. Apploton. Edward Brooks, Chet wood Smith and John H. de Mund. all of whom are New York millionaires of sporting proclivities. TO TUB BOW WOWS WITH YOU The claim of the complainants is that the American kennel club, while nom inally an organization formed for the purpose of improving the breed of dogs, has developed into a. money mak ing concern and has arrogated to it self powers and privileges which give it complete monopoly of the dog trade. And furthermore, that its officers and directors have conspired to restrain and limit this trade to those friendly to the organization. Those who have refused to obey the commands. It is held, are politely requested to go to the demnition bowwows. Tributt. it is asserted, is levied tn"e country over, and dealers who have refused to pay have. had their animals stricken from the rolls of the stud book, the act taking from their dogs all official pride of ancestry and all hope of posterity. A vital part of Chute's complaint surrounds the. stud book. By an act of congress passed recently, the American kennel club was made the official cus todian of the pedigrees of pups of high degree. Blue blooded animals brought to this country were allowed to go through the customs free of charge if they were registered with the club and enrolled on the stud book. This made the club the official medium for every thing aristocratic in the canine line, dogs of nobility having a greater value than many of the foreign human nobil ity, and the duty, at tlme6, being ex ceedingly high. The aim of congress in granting the privilege was to improve the breed of dogs in the United States; but It is the complaint of the National dog breeders' association that It gave the kennel club practical control of the <!og business in that anyone who did rot obey the dictates of the club was rot allowed the privilege of the stud book. HORROR ON HORRORS "Every dog fancier knows what that means." said Henry B. Lister, attorney for Chute. "Take the su^. brought by Chute. He is a dog fancier with a profitable business. He does not belong to the American kennel club, nor has tc anything to do with it. A short time \u25a0go he acted as judge at a show in Larkspur, given by the Marln kennel association, and which was governed by the rules of the National dog breed ers' association. In this he committed the offense of associating himself with a.; show which was not under the auspices of the American kennel club. "A. short time afterwards he received c letter from the American. kennel club informing him that he ha<j violated the rules ot the organization and that he \u25a0was disbarred and disqualified from using the stud book; also, that he would not be allowed to exhibit a dog In any show. He was blacklisted and his name published throughout the country as a breeder who did not re ceive official sanction. "Kow the main reason for the Ameri fan kennel club showing this desire to neve shows held under its auspices is that In every such instance the pro moters of the show have to pay $25 »nd 25 cents a head is charged for •very dog exhibited. In' the face of ihe numerous dog shows In this coun try It can be readily seen what a lucra tive business this must be. In, return th« club gives some cheap medals to the prize winners and officially dubs them champions. The American ken nel club is a New York corporation of two years* standing. Necessarily the dog fanciers of the west objected to this continual drain,' for co far as we could find out the money was being ex pended in paying salaries to a num ber of offlcers and in maintaining a clubhouse in New York. There was bo opposition, however, until a few months ago -when objection was raised to the judging of dogs In shows under the ausp!ces of the American kennel eluh. A number of us were not satis fled with it and formed our own organi zation and started the fight against the trust. PITY O\ DOGS ;'Our main contention is that while the American kennel club may do what it pleases with its own members it certainly has no right to dictate to those outsidf its ranks as It did to Chute. The act of congress which gave' It control of the stud book did not mean that It had the power to state what dogs ehould be enrolled. , Chute has contracted to import three dogs from England, and because he acted as a Judge in a show not sanctioned by this eastern organization he Is told he can not use the stud book and there fore must pay duty. Such tactics are bo high handed that they are ridicu lous." Lister's statements are, in effect, the came as those contained in the suit for damages and also form the basis of the complaint to the United States district attorney In which he asks for the arrest of the officers of the kennel club. Named as defendants in the damage suit are members of the Pa cific advisory board of the American kennel club: W. W. Stettbelmer. Nat. T. Messer. Norman J. Stewart and J. p. Norman. • "I Was requested," said Lister, ,**to aak« a formal complaint which is to be forwarded to the attorney general of the United States. If the facts war rant the claim, the United States will begin suit to restrict ' the powers of the American kennel club to the state of New York and to enjoin It from pre r venting any bona fide importer" from registering dogs under the privilege granted by congress." Speedy Boat Will Inaugurate New Era in River Traffic STEAMER READY FOR LAUNCHING Splendidly Equipped Vessel, "Capital City," Is to Be Launched Next Saturday The California transportation com pany's new steamer Capital City will be launched at 4:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon from the shipyards of Schultze, Robertson and Schultze, South San Francisco. The vessel, built for service between here and Sacra mento, will set a new mark in river transportation. Roomy and fast, the Capital City will be provided with all the comforts of a great ocean liner or first class hotel. Every stateroom will be ser%-ed with hot and cold running water and there will be a number of private suites with private bathroom adjoin ing. The keel was laid in December, 1909. The vessel's length, over all, is 258 feet; beam, over guards. -51 feet •!> inches, and depth of hold. 9 feet 6 inches. The hull is divided into' nine watertight compartments, these com partments being separated by cross steel bulkheads. An elaborate fire sprinkling system has been installed. This all means that the Capital "City will be practically unsinkable and fire proof. The interior woodwork is all ma hogany. There are wide stretches of promenade decks and on the top side is a large observation room protected on all sides from inclement weather by large plateglass windows. The new steamer will be in operation before the end of the year. BURGLARS AND THIEVES GLEAN FAT HARVESTS Jewelry .and Other Valuables Make Up Loot Two burglars climbed through the kitchen window of the residence of Mrs. Dr. Ix>lita B. Day Bew, 3558 Sacra mento street, late Tuesday night- She heard the noise and when she went to the kitchen the intruders jumped out of the window and disap peared. She was unable to give a de scription of them owing to the dark ness. Burglars entered the residence of Mrs. D.

George S. Buckley, druggist, 2173 Pacific avenue, was held up by two men in Caledonia alley near Fifteenth street late Tuesday night and robbed of $67 and jewelry valued at $170. BIRDS WERE TWITTERING TOO EARLY IN THE MORN Native Student Policeman Was Not to Be Deceived "It struck me as peculiar," said Po liceman Bormuth whlre testifying be fore Judge Conlan yesterday in the cases of George Brown and Joseph Pe terson charged with grand larceny," that birds could be whistling so early in the morning. It was about 2 o'clock and the whistling sounds " came from the direction of Larkin r street near Mc- Allister. I made up my mind to inves tigate and as I approached a- box sur rounding one of the monumental lamp posts on the site of the old city hall it struck me that the noise 'came from inside the box. - \u25a0 "I looked inside and saw the two de fendants sawing off the bronze work on the lamp post. They -had sawed off about 180 pounds." Brown and Peterson were held for trial for stealing city property. .

' • • THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL New. river steamer Capital City, which will be launched Saturday. SAN DIEGANS FAVOR EXPOSITION BONDS Representatives of the Southern City Will Support San Fran* cisco in Legislature Members of the Panama -Pacific ex position company who will appear be fore the state legislature September 6 to explain why it is necessary to sub mit to the people constitutional amend ments providing fora state tax and a municipal bond issue will be backed up by representatives of the San Diego exposition. -j ~'i, ;.? :.v? The necessity of the state tax and the San Francisco bond issue is prob ably understood by state senators and assemblymen, but should they require any enlightenment there will be plenty present to give it. The San Diegans will appear at Sacramento solely as friends of San Francisco. They will apply to the next legislature for aid for themselves. \ ATTITUDK OF COXGRESSHIBX With San Francisco assured of the cash needed to Impress congress at its December session, the' attitude of the congressmen and senators is becoming again the most important feature of the situation. Both houses will have to agree upon the exposition city. It is believed that the action of the senate will have strong influence upon the house of representatives and should there be a difference of opinion it is thought that the voice of the senate choice would prevail. There are 22 western -senators, of whom two are democrats. All are un alterably in favor of San Francisco. The south has 28 democratic. senators out of 31.' This leaves San Francisco with two democratic votes and possibly three, including the democratic senator from Indiana. San Francisco and the west have 20 republican votes out of the 59 republicans in the senate. Many of the others are favorable. PROSPECT OF VICTORY The fact that this city has so large. a percentage of practically pledged re publican votes is believed to be an as surance that San Francisco will be the choice of the senate. Should New Or leans put up any fight at all, it sis thought that it will be only on the floor of the house. With $17,500,000 capital and strong support in the house of representatives the local boosters expect to be victorious there also with little trouble. .;/^; \u25a0 : /_/..;-'y: The attitude 'of congressmen from the middle west' will be an important factor In the house of representatives. The local exposition company is doing effective missionary work among the inhabitants of the middle west, and within the last' two months great ben efit has been , derived from the wide spread campaign of publicity. LECTURER FOR CINCINNATI Francis Hope, representing the Cali fornia development board and the Pan ama-Pacific exposition company, . left for -Cincinnati Tuesday on the first eastbound Western Pacific passenger train. During the Ohio V alley exposi tion in that city Hope will .give '52 lec tures. He will. deliver two lectures a day during the month' that the exposi tion Is open to the public. He. went east armed' with about 500 slides of California and San Francisco scenes and quantities of literature, which will be used in converting \u25a0* the people of that section, to the cause of San Fran cisco.

B. Wood on the steamer Buckman, was supported in court yesterday morning by United States Marshal C.T . Elliott and Deputy Marshal Paul Arnerich to hear the complaint read charging him with the crime. The "pirate" collapsed in the most abject manner as soon as he reached the courtroom, and his answers to the usual questions asked by the court were choked with sobs. Tears trickled down, his cheeks' continually, and his whole demeanor expressed the grip ping fear of death that has taken hold of him since It has been brought home to him how close he stands to the gal- ASKS YOR ATTORNEY , "I, haven't any attorney, judge," he blubbered out, wiping his eyes with the back of his hand. "I haven't any at torney." "We'll see that you receive proper counsel," Assistant United States Dis trict Attorney Benjamin McKinley said, when United States Commissioner H. M. Wright, before whom the hearing was held, pointed out that he had no authority to appoint counsel. The complaint was read to Wise," and the matter put over to Monday morning at 10 o'clock, when the hearing will be •held and the case sent up to the United States circuit court for. trial. Witnesses in the case will be present Monday. Wise was taken to the Alameda county jail late yesterday afternoon, after he had secured an . attorney, Frank A. Duryea, and had a consulta tion with him. The expense ofj the pirate's " defense, he said yesterday, would be borne* by his uncle, Joseph .Philborn.'saloonman of Roxbury, Mass. Wise has a sister, Mrs. James Dearbon, in Somerville, Mass. IN ABJECT TERROR The desperado had. recovered from his weeping by the time he was re moved to the Alameda county jail, but nevertheless he was as unstrung as in the morning. His feet dragged heavily as he shuffled away between two-dep uty marshals and he seemed to be in a pitiable state of fright. Wise was lodged in ' a cell by him self, and all access to him has been prohibited at the osder of the federal authorities. \u0084;>;>' Inspector of Hulls and Boilers John Bulger intended to have a further hear ing of the case yesterday morning by taking the testimony of an oiler on the Buckman, but as the steamer sailed at 10 o'clock it was decided to allow this witness *to go until the trial takes place. . \':_' '- : ' : West Not Picked Up [Special Dispatch to The *Call] ASTORIA, Aug. 24.— A report was sent out from San Francisco last eve ning that the steam schooner Rainier, which was en route up the coast for this port, had picked up French West, the man who murdered Captain Wood of the steamer Buckman a few days ago and Jumped overboard.
