TRUST? NO INDEED,
DECLARES TRAPANI
Vice President of Western Fish
Company Denies Existence
of Any Combination
The introduction of testimony in the
$15,000 damage suit of .the Portola fish
company against A^ Paladini individual
ly and six corporations constituting the
fish trust was concluded yesterday. The
case will be argued Tuesday and Wed
nesday of next week, the lawyers on
each side being allowed four hours.. The
e&se will probably be submitted to the
Jury Thursday morning. - ';
The chief 'witness yesterday was A.
Trapani, vice president and manager of
the Western .fish company. ] Trapani
was positive : in: his declarations that
there is no combination or trust to fix
prices of the fish caught by jthe boats
of Pa'adjni; and the Western ifish'cem
pany. The tags introduced In- evidence
by Trapani showed^that»Hhej price at
which Paladini and, Western
company :eold fish^ ' to" 5 : the other
dealers eacii rnorolng was thejsame. It
Just happened, that way, according to
Trapani, and was not the rcsqlt of any
arrangement He admitted, i however,
that there was an understanding as to
the amount 'of fish *vhich his; company
and: Paladini should apportion to the
other dealers.
/Shortly after the Portolai company
started business In November last, there
was a meeting of wholesalers, Trapani
admitted. This meeting, he stated, was
not for the purpose of arranging a boy
cott on retailers who bought: from tne
Portola company, but for the purpose
of arranging a blacklist of : fish men
who were bad pay. The witness denied
that fresh fish was sent to the gl.ue
works, or that he sent E. Borgote to
follow the wagons of the Portola com
pany and ascertain to whom fish was
delivered. :

ARCHBISHOP'S SUIT TO
QUIET TITLE SUBMITTED
Two Contestants Oppose His
Corporate Claim
The suit of the Roman Catholic arch
bishop to quiet title under the McEner
ney act to all the property in this city
owned by the archbishop in his cor
porate capacity was submitted to Judge
Mogan yesterday for decision; The suit
Is contested as to only two ; lots— that
at the corner of Mission and Ninth
streets, an Interest in which is claimed
by Lewis O'Farrell, 'nephew of the late
Teresa Wensinger, who deeded the lot
to the archbishop; and a lot in the
Richmond district upon which St. Ann's
church stands and .which is claimed by
Christina G. Reay under what are
known as the McGrath-Reay claims.
O'Farrell's contest is based on the
contention that his aunt was of un
sound mind. The question was thrashed
out In the trial of the contest of the
will of Teresa Wensinger at Santa
Rosa. A digest of the testimony taken
In the will contest and agreed upon by
Garret W. McEnerney, attorney for the
archbishop, and Andrew Thorne. at
torney for O'Farrell, was submitted
to the court yesterday by .stipulation.
Included among the witnesses were
Mary Frances Benson, wife of Major
Harry Benson, U. S. A.; David I. Ma
honey, the lawyer, and Mrs. Mariana..
Zane L.oughborough, each of whom tes
tified that Mrs. W'enslngerV was- \u25a0 a

THE
SMART
SOCIETY
THE news that Mrs. William Miller Graham has leased the George-
Keppel residence in London for next season is interesting, but disap
pointing to her San Francisco friends. It means, of course, that she
will not be hi California. Mrs. Graham understands so thoroughly how
to. have a good time arid how to give others a good time— perhaps how not to
be bored expresses' it as well — that she is very, keenly missed. It is' just this
qualitj', granting her cleverness and charm, that won Mrs. Graham's success
abroad. Accompanying the knowledge is a talent for spending money, which
is not nearly as common as it soupds. There are scopes of American women
with more wealth than Mrs. Graham, 'but few who know so well how to use
it to promote the.gayety of nations .or their friends. -
.In Europe' it is said -that so many rich Americans are deficient in the
•gentle art of spending because their ancestors labored to earn'and hoard
wealth. .They are lavish enough in their. disbursements, but misdiirected, ac
cording to the'pjeasyre loving European. .' One who will pay. $10,000 for a
tapestry would shrink from wasting half as'much on an entertainment. It is,
again according to the European, .because- he .is born without a sense of the
joy of living, md can't acquire '.itl Still, the Puritan descendant', with his
tapestry which he "will, always have," may be .as wise, after all, as; the one
with a Latin leaveh'in- his temperament' that craves the- gay trivialities of life.'
Which is waiiderin'g far from Mrs.. Graham, who, "by .the way, is so pre
eminently good natured that' she cares "not at all how much is written
about her. • ,-/ •. . • '• ' ' . *. ' '
So.cietj'. is saddened by the prospect of .no" house" parties at "Bellosgardo"
next year. Mrs! Graham's invitations are much coveted. Usually they- inclose
railyway tickets and Pullman accommodations, and the hospitality that follows
is on an equally generous "scale. Last year, when she gave her famous ball
in Santa- Barbara, for which a hou&e party 0f. 24 -was entertained, the, eminent
cotillon leader' who went down from San .-Francisco received a valuable, gift,
with Mrs. Graham's. thanks.' for his efforts. An artist who was invited(railway
ticket inclosed) from Los Angeles to arrange tableaux received also, a cpstly.
remembrance with the thanks of his. hostess, -.There has been .'much -said of
the hapless' young men who scurf ied about to fulfill the suggestion of taking
their valets.. But the truth is, their host provided the .services of a valet for
those who lacked them. . All of which, added -to her charming, personality,
makes it easy to understand why' Mrs. Graham is. missed and why London's
gain is California's loss. : ..\\u25a0 '- -• .. '. ;

erie and other, interesting features/ will
all^help amuse the circus devotee of 30
years' faithful attendance, who now
"goes to see the chidren enjoy" them
selves," but whose own enjoyment
does not depend on the happiness' of
the children^entirely.
The publicity agents of the circus an
nounce theree distinct thrillers,' Des
perado, Jupiter and an unusual aerial
act. Desperado's performance consists
of a dive from just beneath the dome
of .the' circus tent to a skidlike arrange
ment,, landing on his «chest on the
smooth planks of the contrivance, un
hurt. -Jupiter's .act consists of the rais
ing of a beautiful hprse, Jupiter, to the
top of the* tent 'by : a* balloon 'and the
firing- at the .animal of. a number of
roman candles and other, pyrotechnic
paraphernalia. . - . . .
Chief among the other acts to be pre
sented during the stay of the circus in
this :city are. the musical elephants.
These" animals are said: to perform in
excellent harmony. Konyot's troupe of
16 stallions perform a highly divertiing
pantominiiic stunt! There is also a num
ber of comedy and trick ponies and a
couple of mules, said to be impossible
to .ride. .The eque9trians comprise the
Davenport troupe of renowned artists,
Bradnfe's Hungarian riders and horse
soldiers' and ai large number of women
bareback riders, whose act is almost
always thrilling. : : . ;
Several, groups- of world 'famous ac
robats and ae'rialists and a regiment of
clowns,". with new and funny gags, help
to make up the aggregation of per
formers. . : . . . i

Piano Buying
<$ Buying a piano without thoughtfully measuring and investi-
gating its merits, without knowing to a certainty the character
of its makers, the materials used in its construction, and its
reputation for durability and permanent usefulness, is an un-
wise and dangerous experiment.
<J Most pianos look, much alike, and to the unskilled buyer
sound much the same. Differences in case design, in orna-
mentation and general appearance have, unfortunately, little
bearing on the real quality of the instrument, and an extrava-
gantly embellished case usually is a mark of indifferent quality.
CJ Always our aim has been to supply our buyers with the best
possible pianos at the price which they feel they should pay,
giving a value that is as good as can be had for the money
expended in any. city in the United States, and backing the
piano purchased with a guarantee that insures satisfaction for
all time. We invite a most careful scrutiny of our pianos,
because each -and every instrument is built to - stand a most
searching^investigation and thereby to prove its quality.
€j §aye for the addition of Eastern freight, every piano on our
floors is.marked^at the same identical price at which the same
instrument 'would, sell on the retail floors of its manfacturer.
Terms for easy monthly payments may be arranged if desired.

AGED VICTIM OF
MISTAKEN IDENTITY
Civil War Veteran Indicted for
Crime That Was Committed
by Another Man
'\u25a0-.. . . . \u25a0 - . \u25a0 - • \u25a0...\u25a0\u25a0
After haying been arrested and "pos
itively identified** as the forger of a
$36 check; after having been held for
more than five months in jail anJ
after, finally, having been Indicted by
the federal grand jury for the forgery,
Daniel Sheean, a 60 year old civil war
veteran and inmate ci the Youatville
soldiers' home near Napa, will prob
ably be freed today.
Jerome P. O'Sullivan, another inmate
of the home, was arrested In Nap* yes
terday by United States Assistant Mar
shal Paul Aunerich and brought to this
city, where he confessed having com
mitted the crime.
January 20 of this year, some p*r
son entered the Oberon saloon and
grill in Napa and cashed a pension
check for $36. on which the nam« of
Samuel Olson had b«n forged- fjn
March Sheean was arrested, first on
a charge -of drunkenness and later in
June turned over to the federal au
thorities as the man who had cashed
the forged check. Vlctoiv A. Vldy.
owner of the Oberon saloon, and * EL .!•\u25a0
Salomon, who runs the grill, positively
identified Sheean. The federal grand
Jury, returned an indictment in July.
Assistant United States Attorney
Benjamin • McKlnley and Pension Ex- ,
aminer O. L. Sues heard fiy>m Sheean's
attorney that another man" had cashed
the che*ck and the innocence of the
prisoner was protested so hard, both
by the veteran and his attorney, that
the matter was turned over for
further investigation to the marshal
with the result that . it was learned
that O'Sullivan had been missing from
the home at Yountville since about the
time of the forgery. He returned yes
terday and was immediately arrested.
The United States attorney's office
and Sues -will endeavor to have Judge
de Haven issue an order of release
today, so that Sheean may be freed
from the Alameda county JalL^,
