STOCK FAKE EXPOSED
GOODWIN INVOLVED
NEW YORK, Oct. 2.— The office files
of B. 11. Scheftels & Co., whose offices
were raided by federal agents last
Thursday, have yielded a mass of cor
respondence covering the business re
lations between George Graham Rice
and Nat C. Goodwin. Rice was the
brains of the firm, which is charged by
the government with using the malls
with fraudulent intent in the sale of
mining stocks. Goodwin has said that
he did not know until last fall that
Rice's real name was Simon Jacob
Hertzig-, a former convict, although a
letter written by Rice to Goodwin at
St. Louis in July of last year reveals
some of the methods employed by Rice
in selling stock to the gullible.
Rice apparently had proposed to
Goodwin that he (Goodwin) try , to sell
\ some stock in Europe. Rice wrote him
July 9 that:
"We have got an eight foot hole
down in the Bovard mine.
"Any time we have the ore blocked
out we can put up our own mill and
make all the profits ourselves, and If
the property you take along with you
has got to stand such an examination
as school trained engineers are apt to
give it, It is, folly to monkey with it.
There are two kinds of ore blocked out
in the Rawhide coalition, and yet we
could not sell it at 35 cents per share,
and the property was turned down in
''old blood as merely a prospect by en
gineers. I had expected that you
\u25a0would he able to place some stock
across the pond, and since j'ou are con
vinced you will be unable to do so I
will have nothing to give you to take
tlong. so just forget all about the min
ing end in Europe.
"My idea was that you would be
able to pull off something like
did over there. He did not take a
mine there, but a stock prospect, and
fed it to them. He gave dinners and
banquets and cut a -wide swath, and
then had them underwrite the whole
capitalization of one of his com
panies.
"If the Bovard property continues to
show up during the next 90 days as
well as during the last 60 days you
and I won't have to do very much
BONES OF INDIANS
SHOW DEATH FIGHT
Skeletons Discovered in Mound
On San Clemente Marshes
by Three Boys
[.Special Dispatch to The Call]
LARKSPUR, Oct. 2.— Bearing mute
evidence of a fight to the death perhaps
a century ago, the skeletons of two
Indians were unearthed today In a
great mound in the marshes of San
Clemente, about a mile from Larkspur.
by William Bredhoff, Walter and Wll
liam Frizzi, boys who were duck shoot
ing. One of the skeletons was lying
across the other between the ribs of
which was found a sharp stone knife.
It is thought that the braves belonged
to the Tamals and Pals tribes of abo
rigines, who thrived in Marin county
before the advent of the Spanish padres
and from which Mount Tamalpais was
named.
While crossing the marshes the boys
noticed a skull protruding from the
ground. They poked around in the loose
soil and partially uncovered the skele
tons, finally fleeing In a fright with the
skull, which they turned over to the
authorities at San Rafael. Further in
vestigation was conducted by Deputy
Coroner Charles Esberg. The skeletons
were taken from the mound and re
moved to San* Rafael.
The mound is about 50 feet high and
300 feet long and is largely composed
of shells. Besides the two skeletons and
the stone knife, a number of Indian
arrowheads and other small implements
were discovered. The skeletons were
considerably more than normal length.
Although the finding of Indian skele
tons in the county Is no uncommon
occurrence, it is believed that the
mound may prove of considerable in
terest to archaeologists.
SLOOP YACHT CRASHES
INTO A PILOT BOAT
Crowded With Excursionists
When Accident Happens
Heavily loaded with an excursion
party of men and women, the sloop
yacht Josie was caught by the tide
while putting off from Meiggs wharf
yesterday afternoon, and sent crash
ing into tjie pilot boat Grade S.
The women, fearing that it was
going .to turn turtle, screamed. In
the collision the Josie lost its jibboom
and mainstay, but the Gracie S was
not injured in the least.
An hour later there was a second
collision, when the steam schooner Na
tional City, Captain Higgins, ran into
the quarantine tug Argonaut. The Na
tional City was backing away from
Meiggs wharf when the collision oc
curred. Apart from the Argonaut
losing some new -paint on the' port
side no damage was sustained by
either craft.

to roll in money.
"If you are willing to come here in
the fall, Nat, and give our business
the same number of hours that you
have been giving your theatrical busi
ness you could do a lot of good for
all of us.
"Just think o.f it. Nat. We are spend
ing about $4,000 a week for advertis
ing just to get new names to send out
literature to; have 25 stenographers,
five book keepers; are paying $1,000
per month rent."
Rice then discussed Ely Central and
predicts that a "killing" will be made
with it.
He concludes, modestly:
"You know I find it essential to keep
fairly In the background, and Schef
tels alone is compelled to see every
body who wants to do any business
with us. He has not half enough time
to meet the people, and moreover he
is not half as good a- mixer as you
are."
Goodwin, when seen at the. Hotel
Knickerbocker tonight, said he did
not remember receiving any such let
ter from Rice, but declared the prose
cution would find It hard to convict
Rice, who had done nothing 1 wrong.
CARNEGIES AID
LIBERAL CHURCH
Wife of Ironmaster Gives Money
to Universalist Congrega- •
tion in Pittsburg
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
PITTSBURG. Oct. 2.— The sudden
looming into the foreground of the
Universalist church here, for years a
small, struggling body, holding well
advertised and largely attended meet
ings In the North Side Carnegie hall,
after moving from a- small storeioom
used for a church, has occasioned con
siderable speculation in this stronghold
of ultra-orthodoxy and anti-liberalism.
It is announced that Mrs. Andrew
Carnegie, a member of the Universal
ist church, on hearing of. the struggle
made by the flock, championed the
movement by giving liberally of her
cash and also her moral support.
The church has called a minister at a
good salary, and will build an edifice in
a prominent location of the city.
Andrew Carnegie, it Is stated," when
a boy, attended the Swedenborgian
Sunday school here. The fact created
surprise in religious circles, owing to
the conservative stand of the church
toward liberal beliefs.
The pastor predicts a new era in
Pittsburgh religious circles as a result
of Mrs. Carnegie's backing.
NEW SKIRTS WILL BE
LIKE SQUARE PANELS
Bolster Slips Are Fashioned in
Peculiar Manner
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
jl LONDON, Oct. 2.— The hobble skirt
is doomed, but the question, that, has
been on the lips of most women think
ing of autumn gowns has. been con
cerned with the width of the new skirt
It can be staged, with authority that
the new bolster slip skirts will be
long, narrow and becoming when artis
tically cut. *
Evening gowns will be quite lone
but severely simple in line. . One ex
quisite mode shown to a: faahioit
reporter was of yellow brocade em
broidered with gold. It was fashioned
to resemble two long square panels
back and front, which opened at the
sides over a;eatin underdress, the two
'edges of the panel being caught to
gether with an exquisite cabochon
worked in colored stones and drops.
A feature of the new materials is
their exquisite, softness. Brocades are
of the consistency of chiffon," and velvet
is fine. For coloring dress makers are
going back to the lovely medieval
shades of blue.
AMUNDSEN PLANS FOR
ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION
CHRISTIANIA, Oct. 2.— According to
a letter received here from Captain
Roald Amundsen, on- board the Fram
at Maderia, Amundsen has decided to
proceed on an Antarctic expedition. He
promised to send details when he ar
rives at Punta Arenas.
This change of. plans .has occasioned
surprise as it was the original.inten
tion of Amundsen to start early next
year on a drifting voyage for the'north
pole.
The Fram* was -first "to go to San
