Such is the fact, however, and Ed Morin of this place was - the referee, and stakeholder. The agree ment was 'drawn up between a sprinter named Dobbins of Orland, and another pro fessional named Smith. The latter was backed heavily by K. L. Clark, a hardware merchant of Orland, to the amount of 52500. and it is said that he sold his store to raise the money. There, were other bets to the amount of $1000, which were all taken by a man named Ferguson, who backed Dobbins. Smith had proved to Clark's satisfaction thAt he could beat Dobbins, but at the end of the 100 yards he was about a foot or two obehind0 behind andJost the race and Clark lost his , money: ' It was at once charged that every thing was not on the "Square," and nistols were drawn and a free fight seemed "immi nent,'', but "none occurred.

Peter Brooks, who has heen in the cus tody of the police on several occasions for petty offences, was locked up at the South ern Station last evening on a charge of battery preferred by his brother Michael. The latter is a hard-working young fellow, who supports the family at 24 Park avenue on his salary as a news agent on the South ern Pacific road, while the former is a " hi. i Kisiieep," who spends his money for liquor and annoys the family greatly.

From this he was engaged as interpreter in the house of a wealthy Japanese, and afterward became interested In coal-mining enterprises. He also, built the first gas-works In Japan.

Mrs. Moor divides all women into two classes — j the dolls who play and the women who work. Of the former class she thought they were hardly worth mentioning, and the latter were sorely oppressed by the com petition system. They have no lime to cul tivate their minds, and thus prepare them selves to fulfill their highest destiny. Abol ish this cruel system of competition and yon will see better wives and mothers. Women do not have the time to devote to their chiidreu that they should have. She advised young men to abstain from matri mony, unless they were wealthy enough to support a wife in "proper style."

'/The members indulged in a hearty laugh, and the Secretary was then instructed to cast the ballot, there being but the one can didate. This lie did, declaring the vote .unanimous, which raised another laugh, for to be so the nominee must have voted for I himself. Some jocular remarks were passed i over this regarding the importation of the | Oakland Council's plan of electing Presi i dents, and the members then settled down to business.

SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1890-KIGHT PAGES. THE PRICE OF BEER. German Saloon-Keepers Combine to Seep It Up. - They Are Opposed to High License, Local Op tion and Dives, and Inimical to the Bcda-Water Trust. The "Verein Dents, her Wierthe." which, being freely translated, means the German Saloon-keepers' Association, was organized three years ago for the purpose of opposing high license, local option and prohibition movements, aud for the purpose of driving dive-keepers out of business. Among the members of the association are some of the best known saloon-keepers of the city. Joseph Straub is President and Jacob Ku metscli Secretary. Adolf Becker, William Kreling and O. JNoerz are members. The association has led a peaceful ex istence, but its future is overcast Some time ago certain members of the Brewers' Association began to reduce the price of beer. They reduced it so low that saloon keepers could afford to sell It for 5 cents a glass. They sold and still sell a barrel of steam beer for So. There are 500 glasses in a barrel of beer, and the retailer receives S-_ for them— a profit of .20 on a barrel. Certain brewers wish to reduce the wholesale price, and it is said that if this is done many saloon keepers will lower the price of beer to 3 cents a glass. A KK.ll C OPPOSES. The members of the Saloon-keepers' A ssociation want no reduction. They will op pose any attempt to reduce the irice, and will not patronize any brewer who does not maintain the present rates. The members of the verein have organized the Liberty Soda Water Works, in opposition to the •Soda Water Trust, which they assert is com posed of the brewers who are cutting prices. " The Soda Water Trust." said a member of the verein yesterday, " bought up the only glass factory in the city, and would not sell us bottles if we did not buy their soda water. AYe were not prepared to submit to their tyranny, and decided that our only salvation lay- manufacturing soda water for ourselves. So we organized the Liberty Soda Water Company, and have managed to get along without the trust. Our verein was organized for the purpose of opposing high license, local option and similar laws, and for the purpose of driving disreputable men out of tiie business. Entitled TO RESPECT. "We believe that an honest saloon-keeper is entitled to tbe respect of his fellow-citi zens as much as any other man. We would not sell liquor if the public did not demand it. If whisky and beer wore not wanted, they would neither be made nor sold. There is no reason why the saloon-keeper should be a dive-keeper. The business of selling liquor is as legitimate ns the busi ness of selling drugs, and is as honorable. Our society will see that it is kept honor able." As the 300 members of the association have decided that a reduction of the whole sale price of beer will Inevitably cause a re duction of the retail price, they will take action at their next meeting against the brewers who favor a reduction. SPAN I WIDOW. She maintains Her I'ualtlnn as Claimant of the Estate. Judge Coffey yesterday took up the mat ter of the three applications for letters of administration on the estate of Joseph Spanier. The applicants were the i'ublic Administrator, Mrs. Pauline Sharp, sister of the deceased, and Belle Spanier, who claims to be the widow. Mrs. Spanier was examined and testified that she had signed a marriage contract in a house on California street, between Ma son and Taylor. The paper is not in her possession, and she could not tell what had become of it. Since it was signed she and Spanier had always conducted themselves as husband and wife, ami were received as such by all their friends. The paper was duly witnessed. Judge Coffey further asked the witness what had become of tlie written contract, and she replied that it had been destroyed by Mr. Spanier. Attorney Cole, who appeared for the sis ter of the deceased, announced that be was satisfied with Mrs. Spanier's claim, and that there was really no contest. The widow then filed a document in which she stated that owing to the $30,000 bond that was required as executrix of the estate she desired that J. 11. Sharp, the husband of Spanier's sister, should be appointed in her stead. This action was taken by the Court. The estate is valued at ___,OU_. PERSONAL HOIKS. J. W. Estes of Sonoma is at the Palace.

Dr. James Philpot Webb committed sui cide yesterday morning at his rooms at 1023 Mission " street by shooting himself through the right temple. He lived only a few minutes. Despondency moved him to commit the rash act. Pinned to his desk was the following note: I desire my body to be Riven to the Medical De pal tmeiit or the University of California for dis section. This would have happened In any case sooner or later. ■ j, p. Webb. Shortly before 11 o'clock Mrs. H. L Ful ler, the landlady, was startled by the re port of a pistol in the doctor's room. With some lodgers she went to the room and found Dr. Webb lying on the floor in the front of his big easy-chair. By his head was an immense pool of clotted blood and his right hand grasped a pistol. The fright ened women immediately ran into the street and sent for an officer. Policemen Davis and Cotter responded, and after visiting the room, notified the Coroner, who took charge of the body. - - Dr. W_bb has been in ill-health recently, paid little attention to his practice and con sequently became despondent. With these troubles his eyesight failed him lately, and in many cases prevented him from attend ing to his proles sioual duties. It has been said that he was a heavy drinker, but there is no truth In this, and his many friends are highly indignant over the false report. Dr. Webb has been a resident of this city for nearly fifteen years, before which he was for many years Post Surgeon at the military barracks at Sitka, Alaska. The doctor was a native of Ireland and a gradu ate of Queen's College, Cork. - His mother was a sister of the famous John Philpoi Cumin, the Irish orator and barrister. The deceased was 50 years of age and single. lie has a sister and niece living in this city. At one time he was well know.i in the medical profession here and is still highly spoken of by all who knew him, either socially or professionally, He lived alone and had often, especially when his troubles weighed on him, com plained that he had no one to look to. APRIL FOOL'S DAY. lint Little Attention Pni.l to .Practical .Ink.* in This City. The ancient custom on April Ist of play ing all »___« of deceiving tricks on credulous passers-by was not generally observed in this city yesterday. Like other wayback land marks, deceiving people, specially on April Ist, has fallen into deep, dark, innocuous desuetude. In fact, hardly one man out of a hundred recalled the fact that April Ist used to be called April Fools' day. The old stale tricks of placing a hat with a brick in it on the sidewalk for the pur pose of inducing somebody to kick it; the nailing down of a dollar to the sidewalk: the dropping of an old purse stuffed with paper, aud all such similar stale chestnutty fakes were happily non est. 'The old or der (of foolishness) changed, giving way to to new (and more sensible) ideas. Captain Donleavy of the .North Harbor Station said, however, that he had been a little April fooled, as not a prisoner had been arrested by his subordinates up to noon. He also had presented himself with a new suit of clothes in honor of the day. The leading April-fooler of the day was a slelgbt-of-hand artist on the front, noar the J Chief Wharfinger's office, who said for 50 cents cakes of soap with 520 bills wrapped around them, and reaped a rich harvest. A FATAL FALL. Terrible Death of a Craneman at the Union Iron Worka. . John Hall, an employe of the Union Iron Works, was killed yesterday shortly after noon by a fall from the overhead cranes on the new war-ship under construc tion. He fell about forty feet and died a few minutes later from internal injuries. His body was taken to the Morgue. His duty was to adjust gearing at the top of the high shears, aud while at work yesterday beside a fellow craneman named James Ilillier, he lost his balance and met his death. Only his comrades attended him until the Morgue wagon arrived, and it is said 100 managers took only a passing interest in the poor fellow's terrible end. He lived with his parents at ii;. lUusch street, and helped support them. Battered Willi a Brink. Mrs. Catherine McDermott was taken to the Southern Station last evening by Officers Lake and Gilfoy on a charge pre ferred by Mrs. Ellen Riley. The women live in the rear of '"l Eighth street ami en gaged last night in a neighborly quarrel.

Hall. -...-, - 00 .'-; o " - ' -':.." Gocd "Work Being ; Done by Deputy. Game Wardens— "Wh_ Returned With Empty Creels Yesterday. J There was quite a large representation of members ,of the •. Sportsman's Protective Association present c last evening at the Knights of the Red : Branch J Hall. Levi Peck presided. After fr hearing several speakers dilate on the game and fish ques- . tion the President brought up the matter of incorporation, winch was discussed at a, previous ' meeting. Tho ■ subject aroused considerable feeling among ] the members, and after a lone debate it was finally de cided not to incorporate for the present. The address to the sportsmen of the State, which had been read before the club at its meeting in "March last, was referred to the Board of Directors, who, after some minor alterations, will have it printed and distributed to the sportsmen of the interior towns. X.X. Quite an interest was manifested in the distribution of game birds by the Game and Fish Commissioners. The general body thought as the purchases had been made with a State appropriation some of the birds purchased in the Last and known as hob white quail might add to the pleas ure of the sportsmen of this city and ad joining towns if distribuled among the ranches within easy reach of San Francisco, and that the lovers of quail-shooting in this city' should be given the same consideration in this matter as their fellow-sportsmen of the city by the river. IIKIIIX.VING TO GET PLEASED. - The members of the association seemed to be very well pleased with the good work the Deputy Commissioners have been do ing, so far as protecting fisb and game from destruction during the close season Is concorned, and held that their valuable services should bo thoroughly appreciated by every true-loving sportsman who is at all interested in lisliiuc and hunting. One of the members, a most enthusiastic sportsman, said that a sportsmen's associa tion for the protection of game and fish should be established in every town and city in the State, and these associations should lend every means iv their power to assist the game and fish commissioners in a duty which they have undertaken and are zealously performing In the protection of game and fish. Without the aid of fel low-sportsmen throughout the State the speaker thought that the Deputy Commis sioners would have a very up-hill task to perform. Several members were proposed, and ten of those who applied for membership at the last meeting were elected. The receipts of the evening were S'-7 50. Professor Engerman of San Diego, who is the recognized authority on fishes of Pa cific Coast wateis, is at present visiting this city. He is makiug a special study of the salmon, or so-called salmon trout, which visit the Coast streams in the winter season. JNot very many weeks ago the professor sent to the Academy of Sciences in JNew York a collection of fishes caught near the harbor of San Diego. PATROL WORK. Fred Callundan, chief of the fish patrol, who has returned from a tour through the country which lies between this city and Santa Cruz, represents that he was in that section of the country protecting trout streams, and that in the near future lie will start on a tour after those who are catching striped bass. - Numbers of anglers visited many of the coast streams yesterday, but as the water is yet too high the sport was by no means encouraging. A few good catches were made by those who dug deep into the coun try canyons and fished the little streams where the native trout abound. There will be very few successful catches reported from the large streams until the first of May, when the fish will not be disturbed by continual freshets. SEW SHOOTING GROUNDS. The Lincoln Gun Club has removed to more convenient and desirable shooting grounds adjoining Alameda l'oiut Station. The club has made many improvements for the convenience of shooters and visitors and is now ready for practice for the opening. medal shoot, which will beheld April ______ ■_ IDA CARROLL'S PICTURES. They Are Introduced in the Failing Case to Show the IV m. Character. The testimony in behalf of Mrs. Xarifa J. Failing, charged with the murder of her husband, was concluded yesterday after noon. The defense introduced half a dozen photographs of Ida M. Carroll, found among the deceased's effects, and most of them of a very indecent character. They were pro duced to show what kind of a woman she is. the . prosecution relying largely on her testimony to convict Mrs. Failing. The Carroll woman was riding with Failing at the time of the shooting. The prosecution will present testimony in rebuttal to-day, and it Is expected that the arguments will begin this afternoon.
