SPARRED IN PEACE.
So Police Interference at the
California Club.
Cciin'.iflo Glove Coatesti— President Fulda'i
Speech en th? Club's Future— The .
■Wrestling-Match.
The anxiously awaited exhibition of the
California Athletic Club that was suprrosed
by many to turn out to be a test of the ac
tual powers of the authorities to stop any
or all boxing contests was given last even
. ing in the rooms on New Montgomery and
Howard streets.
Although no less than three different
pairs of boxers gave exhibitions right under
the nose of Police Captain Short, no inter
ference by the authorities took place.
At 8:00 o'clock, when word was given for
the entertainment to commence, there were
not over 200 people in the hall, though, as
the ii^tir advanced and no discomfited box
. er. 5 , Directors or spectators were noticed be
ing hauled eff to the Southern Police. Sta
tion, the attendance increased, more mem
bers dropping in until there were probably
400 persons all told in the hall.
All the Directors were present and of them
Director George Boss courted special atten
tion, by a flaming big badge, marked "Club
Director," pinned to his coat. Probably
Director Ross had been decided upon as the
■sacrificial directorial lamb, to be arrested
case the police concluded to interfere.
Not many of the usual well-known specta
:' tots at all the past prize-fights to a finish
were present, but still there was quite a
representative California Club delegation
in attendance. Police-Captain Short was
. one of the earliest arrivals, and no opposi
tion to bis entrance was made.
A QUIET LITTLE EXHIBITION.
A\bout half-past 8 o'clock Billy Jordan,
the official club master of ceremonies, en
tered the ring and announced that the first
exhibition would be between Charley
Pochette of this city and Nick McCarthy of
Australia, a brother of Billy McCarthy.
Four clever rounds were given, in which
the Australian, who was much the heavier,
.showed clearly bis superiority over the
local boxer. Bob Fitzsimmons, who leaves
for New Orleans to-day to fight Arthur
> ysham, and Joe Choynski next appeared
and gave an exhibition of fancy tapping
that was loudly applauded. Jimmy Carroll
and Martin Murphy followed iv four
rounds of very fast light work, tho honors
S being about even.
A HARD-FOUGHT BOUND.
President Fulda, after the boxers had left
tlie stage, then entered the arena and had a
lengthy one-round contest with a speech.
In- appearance was greeted with loud and
continued applause. When silence was at
last had, he said:
" 1 don't suppose it is necessary to allude
to the club's recent troubles. Tbey were
not of the club's making, but were caused
by the indecent aud unsportsmanlike con
duct of unprincipled people, who had no
regard for decency or anything else as long
as they could sell a little bad whisky. It is a
ease of the innocent suffering for the guilty.
The object of the club always has been to
foster square sports, aud boxing, or the art
of self-defense, is conceded the most manly
and healthiest of all athletics. Many peo
ple try to force their opinions on others, re
gardless of right or wrong. In some States,
to drink a glass of wive is to be called a
drunkard; in others it causes the drinker
to be arrested. We maintain that' the club
violates no law in fostering boxing. The
police authorities all over America say box
ing ought to be encouraged, as it diminishes
attacks with deadly weapons, and murders.
AX AXCIEXT TIICTIt.
"There is a great difference between
brutal prize-fighting and skillful boxing.
We have always had the police authorities
present at all our past contests to determine
between brutality and science an.l they
have never interfered. We now desire to
have the law defined and see bow far we
can go— where the line is to be drawn. Wo
have engaged nt great cost the best legal
talent, ami we will test our rights In a dig
nified, honest, quiet, gentlemanly way. lf
we are violating the law we want to know
it and settle the question for all time.
Chief Crowley is placed in such a position
. that he must obey the law under the higher
authorities and that is all right if the law
is all right too. We do not desire to violate
t:.e law.
"At present we do not know what our
exact plan will be to teat this law. It is
undecided yet, but it will be settled all in
due time. We have engaged W. W. Foote
. and George A. Knight for our legal ad
visers and we shall be guided by their ad
vice.
"I am sorry to see so many members ab
sent to-night. They ought not to be away.
They should have come if only to assert
•■- their rights as American citizens. When
our troubles commenced the Directors
. feared we would not be fully supported, but
' now they feel that they are getting all the
■ encouragement that they hoped for.
LAW AND FINANCES.
. "If asked to attend our exhibitions no
one need be afraid to come, for no arrests
will be made, as no law will be violated.
Don't be afraid to come.
"If you'll stand up for us, we'll protect
your rights. Assert your rights. We have
on our rolls the best men in the State.
"To carry on the club we must have
. money. The club was raised from nothing
to Its present height by money judiciously
and honestly expended. When our trouble
aif.e the club was S3OOO in debt, but that is
no more thau the club has generally been
behind. If, however, members will pay
the past and present months' dues we can
pay off every cent and owe nothing. We
don't propce to give up the club. We
know we are right and will carry it through.
Only stand by us and we'll stand by you.
. The other day we had to fall back on our
.. old members to raise $1000 advance dues to
- pay for legal help, and raised It in less time
than we have often found needed to collect
$200 back dues. In conclusion I will say
that in all probability matters will be
straightened in a very short time."
A POLITICAL THREAT.
The President's speech ended in loud ap
plause, which was renewed when George
A. Knight mounted the stage steps and
Said
■" I claim that a sport that has been rec
ognized by the press and by the silent ap
proval and presence of the police for over
two years has a prescriptive right to con
tinue. We have a right to be here. We
will make no test caso. We will not dare
tne police to arrest us. If we have been
criminals for two years and have not been
arrested, bow is it that we stand now under
the ban? We have violated no law. We
■ have been legally incorporated and author
ized by the law to do what we bave done
for years past. How then can the line be
drawn now? We have violated no law and
propose to conduct ourselves as in the past.
"All we now ask of the press is to be as
fair to us now and in the future as they
have been in the past, and that the cry of
the minority will not be catered to. At
present we are not called on to advance our
■ side. Tho club's legal advisers have not
been called in to make a test case, only to
advise on the situation. We shall give
none that will jeopardize the club's future.
All that is necessary is to calmly take the
same position in the future as in the past.
Election Is approaching. You will see lots
of weak-kneed fellows on deck catering to
a semi-popular cry. But if we are wrong
now we were wrong two years ago. How
ever, I will say in conclusion that our next
exhibition will be within the limit of the
law and as good a one as the club ever
gave."
WRESTLING ROUTS,
After an exhibition of club-swinging by
J.. \V. Grogan, the wrestling match be
tween W. XI. Schwartz of the Dtiriine Club
and Vinton L. White of the California,
- best two falls in three, for a trophy and
the amateur heavy-weight championship of
the Pacific Coast, was announced, Michael
Josephs acting as referee. Both men
looked in first-class trim, Schwartz having
perhaps a little the advantage in weight.
- The conditions were, first fall, Grteeo
' Roman; second, catch-as-catch-can ; the
style for the third to be selected by the
•winner in the quickest time of the first two
falls if they were divided. When time was
. called, afler a little standing up play,
Schwartz went to the floor and bridged.
White went to work ou him and tried every
way to get a winning hold, but Schwartz
by his great strength broke them all in
clever style. He, however, contented him
self by acting strictly on the defensive, only
.. once attempting to take the initiative. It
looked as if the match would be a draw, as
after some forty-three minutes' Dlay neither
had the advantage. Suddenly White got a
half-Nelson that Schwartz could not break
and placed bis opponent's shoulders on the
canvas, winning the fall in 43 minutes '21
' seconds.
While tho men were being rubbed down,
■W. Scotland Joe Acton, Bob Pitzsiuinions
and P. Merritt wrestled . a bout catch-as
catch-can, with Acton and Fiizsimmous the
winners.
White and Schwartz then came on for the
second bout, catch-as-cntili-crn. It resulted
iv a quick and easy victory tor White. He
got a crotch-and-body hold on Schwartz,
spun him around on liis bead aud raised
him up bodily, aod on the second attempt
landed him neatly on the canvas, winning
tbe second fall and match in just one min
ute.
No Bench Show.
The California Kennel Club met last
evening at 436 Montgomery street, J. B.
Lewis presiding.
The committee previously appointed to
secure a hall for the bench show on the
7tb, Bth, 9th and 10th of September, re
ported that no hall suitable for the pur
pose could bo found for these dates. The
time for holding the bench show was there
fore postponed until April, 1891, when it
will positively be held.
Dr. John Gallwey, E. Giraud. Louis
Miller and John L. Meares were elected
members of the club. Frank Deltte was
elected a member of the Executive Com
mittee.
Ths Treasurer reported Sl4O in the treas
ury. _
Interstate Conrsine.
The members of the Interstate Coursing
Convention met last night and were quite
enthusiastic over the prospects of the great
meeting to be held at Merced next fall.
From all parts of the State they have good
news as to the probable success of the
proposed meeting. It is all but certain that
over 100 dogs will take part in the meet
ing. It is expected that dogs from Kansas
and Nevada will be present, as well as from
all parts of this State. The large slake
(81000 for first) is, of course, the great at
traction. The programme will be issued
about the 20th of August.
'Tin- >->„,.-* '1.
Jack Dempsey is slowly making his way
eastward with a combination. The Buck
ley tourists saw him in Chicago and say
he acted in a very despondent and broken
hearted maimer. Every time San Fran
cisco was alluded to Der ps*>y seemed to
think about La Blanche, and the tourists
think he will never get over his defeat by
the Marine. Otherwise Dempsey was do
ing well, but did not appear to be very
anxious to return to this city.
A Foot- Bull Challenge.
The members of the Oakland T. to. C. A.
Rugby Foot-ball Club have decid.*} to play
every Saturday evening, commencing at
half-past 6 o'clock. They are anxious to
arrange a series of match games, and will
consider any challenges sent them.
HARMONY AT LAST.
No Squabbling Disturbs the
Fourth of July Committee.
nmitteeman Lynch Goes Tip Like a Bcoket
en lha Fireworks Question — Captain
Swasey Takes a Tumble.
The Executive Committee which had
charge of the celebration of the Fourth of
July held a meeting last night for the pur
pose of receiving reports of various sub
committees and winding up its affairs.
William Cluff was called upon to preside
in the absence of the Chairman.
Last night's session of the committee
differed from those which have gone before
in that it was singularly and astonishingly
harmonious. The absence of every dis
turbing element was a matter of the great
est surprise to the members themselves,
who for the first time became aware that it
was possible to transact business without a
war of words.
D. A. Macdonald of the Finance Commit
tee reported that there is on hand a sum
amounting to 52476 40, of which $2410 is in
the baud s of the Treasurer, aud the remain
der in the possession of the Chairman of
the Finance Committee. He stated that no
returns had yet been received from two
collectors of subscriptions, for the reason
that they are out of town. lie promised a
full report by the next meeting.
John A. Steinbach of the Invitation Com
mittee reported that he bad no expenses
and every duty of this committee had been
executed with expedition and fidelity.
LYNCH WILL HAVE NO DONATIONS.
Mr. Crane of the Parade Committee
stated that the expenses of his committee
would exceed the appropriation made for
it by $3.
The report of the Committee on Decora
tions showed that there are two bills which
brought the expeuses $30 over the appro
priation. These are for two flags, one for a
new one and another for an old flag which
had blown to pieces when unfurled to the
breeze.
All these bills were finally referred to tho
Auditing Committee, with instructions to
audit them if there is auy money with
which to pay them.
The Committee on Regatta presented a
report in which, in addition to the $400 ap
propriated, $50 was asked to pay for the tug
which contained the pleasure party which
followed the boats around the bay.
Committeeman Lynch wanted to know if
there is any money in the treasury to "do
nate" to such a purpose. "I believe," said
he, "that those expenses authorized should
be first paid."
Captain Swasey, John A. Steinbach and
others made speeches in favor of allowing
the bills, and they were finally referred to
the Auditing Committee to be audited, with
the proviso that there be money enough in
the funds.
A NENT THE FIItEWOKKS.
J. Corbett of the Committee on Carriages
reDorted that out of tim $285 appropriated
$283 bad been expended and $2 remained at
the disposal of the Executive Committee.
Chairman Cluff next called for a report
from the Fireworks Committee, but its
Chairman was not present. :*-«
At the mention of the word, Committee
man Lynch was on his feet with as much
suddenness as if a rocket had been attached
to bis coat-tails.
"I waut to give you my opinion of those
fireworks," he said, with the accent on the
works. The members turned uneasily in
their seats and looked for an explosion more
substantial than the weak pop of the pyro
technical failures at Sixteenth and Folsom
streets.
"I was in favor of fireworks, and am in
favor of them yet," said Mr. Lynch, with a
grandiloquent sweep of his baud. " But,
gentlemen, the fireworks we had were worse
than a failure. The exhibition was a fizzle.
1 am disgusted with it. Everybody is dis
gusted with it. I claim that there was no
$300 worth of fireworks there and we are to
pay $800 for them. I do not allude to the
gentlemen ot the committee as neglecting
the matter, but 1 say there was something
wrong, and I for one will sign no bill for
$800 until the thing is investigated."
THE EXPLOSION AVERTED.
There was a hush, but no answer to Mr.
Lynch. He was about to continue in tho
same vein when the Chairman called him
to order by saying that the matter could
not lie heard until the Fireworks Commit
tee made its report, and thus the threatened
explosion was averted.
The Literary Committee presented a re
port, showing that the expenses had been
05 cents over the appropriation allotted.
Bills were allowed by the committee as fol
lows: Mrs. Jerome Deasy, flowers, $21
refreshments, $36; rent of lower hall, «•-!;
Miss BlacK, training young girls, §20; quar
tet, $25; Wilkie, S.">; janitor, $7; J. T.
Bowers, $2; flag and eagle. $2; costumes,
§5; rent of hall, Sl.}; door-keepers, $20.
The Printing Committee, through E. W.
Williams, reported that there is a balance
of $52 75 left over the appropriation.
On motion of Mr. Crowe all bills properly
signed and audited were ordered paid out of
the funds ou hand.
D. A. Macdonald brought up the question
of the remuneration of the employes of the
committees, who|consist of three Secretaries
and one Sergeant-at-arms. The matter was
considerably discussed, the parties inter
ested being excluded from the room. Many
speeches were made to show that positions
were not sinecures and that the clerical
help is entitled to a good compensation.
CAPTAIN MVASITy'.s tumble.
Captain Swasey moved that besides the
§400 appropriated for clerical help, all funds
left over should be divided among the Sec
retaries, He then unbosomed himself of a
high eulogium upon the indefatigable exer
tions of the Secretaries, who were depicted
with a perpetual ink-bottle in one baud and
an everlastingly jogging pen in the other.
But this lofty flight iv the empyrean of
encomiumlstic eloquence was brought to an
abrupt termination when the Captain was
informed that at the previous meeting bo
bad himself moved that whatever surplus
would remain after the payment of all bills
should be turned over to the Native Sons of
the Golden West. It was for him au awful
tumble from his winged Pegasus.
After considerable discussion, it was
finally decided to recompense the employes
as follows: Secretary $150, Clerk to the
Grand Marshal £150, Assistant Secretary
8100, S«rgeant-at-Anus £100.
This remuneration , was based upon the
assumption that there would be sufficient
funds, but In case the cash falls short, each
employe will have to stand a pro rata re
duction.
A final meeting of the committee will be
held next Thursday night. ".,""*
A iA.cer.ited Lip.
John Riley of 127 Ninth street reported
at the Receiving Hospital with a badly cut
upper lip. which had to be stitched. He
claimed that the wound was the result of a
kick, but by whom ha would not i ay.
THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, JULY 10. 1890-EIGHT PAGES.
WHITE-WINGED PEACE.
It Broods Once More Over the
Republican Hosts.
Result of a Conference With the Business
Men's Advisory Committee— Political
Happenings of the Say.
Dr. Myers and Arthur R. Briggs have
met, and all fears of possible bloodshed
have been removed. They have clasped
bands in the fellowship of a reunited Re
publican party, and the white-winged
angel of peace broods once more over the
erstwhile warring factions.
It all took piaco at-the meeting of County
Committee last night, and Phil Crimmins'
bar-tender smiled his benediction when the
reconciled chieftains pledged eternal and
undying fealty to a common cause.
When Dr. Myers' gavel fell last night at
the opening of the meeting the committee
rooms were crowded to suffocation, and in
addition to the committeemen there were
present a full hundred or more tried and
trusted henchmen of the various clans.
Sconchin Maloney had blossomed out with
the reddest of roses at his lapel, and took
the most intense iuterestin the proceedings.
Committeeman Isaacs, mindful of the ad-
monitions of the Chairman, maintained a
dignified silence, which did much to expedite
the business of the meeting.
After the reading of the minutes Mr.
Jacobs from the Executive Committee re
ported the following, which was unani
mously adopted:
To the Chairman and members of the Repub
lican County Committee— i.knti.kmks: The
Executive Committee respectfully presents the
following report, aud asks lor the adoption of
its rccuiiimeuUatluus:
At a meeting ol Hie Executive Committee, held
on the Till day of July, 1890, the several resolu
tions peilaluiug to Uie tl-ctlun of delegates to
[tie various convention* that wererelei ied to tbo
J>xecut lve. Committee were duly considered.
It was resolved dial in order to avoid estab
lishing any precedent that hereafter no com
munication from any committee shall be received
or taken cognizance of by the County Commit
tee, unless sucti communication be accompanied
by a list of the names ot the members constitut
ing sucti committee, and lhat ibe Secretary be
instructed 13 notify Mr. A. If. ITrlggsof the
adoption of lhe above resolution aud also thai
his communication was received and considered
as emanating from an Individual and uoi from
any committee or organization.
The suggestions embodied In the communica
tion ol Mr. Bilges tveie then taken up seriatim,
and were duly considered.
ISuKgestlou "one" was not acted upon for lll**,
reason thai the primary election law fully covers
tne suggestion, and action thereupon was unnec
essary.
suggestion "two" was adopted. It reads as
follows: "So barricades or otber obstructions
shall be erected or maintained iv front of any
polling-place, but the said polling-places shall
be as tree from all obstructions a* tbey are at
eeueral elections, and we beieby give notice that
no returns will be leceived or counted as olllclal
from any internet where this provision bas beeu
violated."
lS'n action was taken upon suggestion "three"
for lhe reason thai the mailers u.uiciu mentioned
are provided for by law.
No action was taken upon suggestions i, a, 6,
7 and 8.
Amotion to adopt suggestion "nine," which
leads: " This primary election shall be held, and
the oils must be opened and closed during the
hour provided by law for holding general elec
tions," was lost, tt was resolved, however, that
a. I lie prlmaiy election for delegates to lb>' Stale
Couveutiou, the polls shall open al C:3U o'clock
in tin- forenoon and close at 2 o'clock iv the af
ternoon of the 24th day of July, 1390.
A motion lo adopt suggestion "ten," which
leads: "Delegates to the Male, Legislative and
niuiiicii al couveuiiuu** shall be elect' d at one
and the same time, and in making the call for the
primal election tins plan shall be adopted," was
lost, Itespeclfully submitted,
Jlvtii Jacobs, Chairman.
It was then announced that a number of
business men, constituting an Advisory
Committee, and consisting of A. K. Briggs,
I. C. Stumpf, A. G. Booth, George W. Dick
son and George A- Sanderson, were pres
ent, and a recess was taken to allow the
Executive Committee to confer with them.
They immediately went into executive ses
sion, as Dr. Myers objected to the repre
sentatives of the press, aud after a confer
ence lasting more than au hour Mr. Jacobs
reported. He stated that the gentlemen
represented were business men and Repub
licans of the highest standing, and he was
pleased to say that the conference had been
most satisfactory to both sides. He moved
that Mr. Briggs be invited to explain what
had been done.
Mr. Briggs, on being called for, expressed
bis pleasure at meeting so many of the old
workers of the Republican party, and
stated that the only desire on his part was
to allay any friction that might exist. After
consulting with the County Committee for
more than an hour but one point of differ
ence was found and that, he believed,
would be amicably adjusted. The most
perfect harmony prevailed, and he could
say that the Republican party was united
as it had never been before.
Committeeman Jacobs at the conclusion
of Mr. Briggs' remarks read an outline of a
call for a primary election for delegates to
the State Convention, which was adopted
and which apportions the delegates among
the Assembly districts as follows: 1 wenty
nintb, 4; Thirtieth, 6; Thirty-first, 4;
Thirty-second, 6; Thirty-third, 6; Thirty
fourth, — ; Thirty-fifth, 6; Thirty-sixth, 5;
Thirty-seventh, U; Thirty-eighth, 7; Thir
ty-ninth, 5; Fortieth, 7; Forty-first, 9; For
ty-second, '.); Forty-third, 7; Forty-fourth,
9; Forty-fifth, 7; Forty-sixth, 5; Forty
seventh, 6, and Forty-eighth, 8.
Nominations for delegate at large were
declared in order and Dr. McLaughlin pre
sented the name of Reuben H. Lloyd, who
was chosen by acclamation.
Resolutions were also adopted as follows,
and the committee adjourned:
WiiKitr.As, The Republican County Commit
tee recognizes mat harmony and untied action
ate uecessaiy to the success of any organiza
tion; and whereas, The County Committee, rep
resenting no taction, but having for its object
the advauc meat and tuccess ol the Republican
party, lias dliected all of Us efforts lowaid estab
lishing and promoting concord of action and
avoiding dissension aud discord Id the panv
■ auks; now tiiereloie be It
I:, solved, in. ihe County Committee in the
future, as In ibe past, will endeavor to adopt
that couise lhat will most effectually tend to ce
ment the various elements in the party so that
all Republicans may co-operate Iv securing the
success of the itenublicao Darty.
Resolved, Tbat the County Committee being
desirous that the election for delegates to the
municipal, legislative and Judicial conventions
shall be conducted honestly and fairly, and that
all of the safeguards of the law may be secured,
and tbe Republican voters of the respective dis
tricts ot baa Fraucisco shall have lull and fab
opportunity to cast their ballots without subjec
tion to annoyance or Insult at the hands of nel
sons antagonistic lo the party, and whose object
Is to cast odium ou the party aud secure Us de
feat ; that ihe County Committee Hereby posi
tively and emphatically reiterates that It Is la
favor of holding elections for delegates to tbe
municipal, legislative aud judicial conventions
nuder and lv accordance with Ibe piimary elec
tion law.
Resolved, That It lias always been the purpose
of tbo Couuty Committee to hold elections for
delegates lo said conventions In accordance with
said law and that elections tor such delegates
will br held at an appropriate lime alter the ad
journment of the Slate Convention.
Resolved, That we deem it advisable and for
the best interests of the party lhat Uie election
of deli-gales to the municipal, legislative and
judicial conventions shall t„,t be held simultane
ously with the election of delegates to tbe State
couveutiou.
I list— l- or the reason that too long a lime
would Intervene neiween the holding of the
election and the assembling of the local conven
tions, me result being thai the delegates elected
will be continually besieged and subjected to
annoyance by the aspirants for orhce and by the
advocates ol such aspirants, lhat iv consequence
It would bodiniculi lo secure lhe better element
of the Republican parly to serve as delegates iv
such convention.
(Secondly— We are confident Ift at the Republi
can Male Convention will have at ftearl the best
iuieiesis the pany, that it wilt present to the
vuteis „I the Slate a satisfactory and acceptable
ticket, that the voters by reasou thereof will be
come more enthusiastic ln hei.ali of the party
than at present, more zealous iv ihe advocacy of
tbe nominees of ihe convention, and that me
beller element ul Ibe parly ill consequence will
Willingly seive as delegates I" local conventions,
and that representative met, will be induced to
accept nominal ions for legislative and municipal
unices, wi,u would otherwise decline.
Thirdly— The holding uf all the pilinary elec
tions on the same day would give rise to the
trading ot candidates by »ellish and deigning
politicians, and hi consequence lhe success of
candidates i.n the Slate Convention would be
Imperiled, and Ihe ejection for delegates to such
cunvention would be materially inteifered with.
ectlully submitted. an lii jacoits.
WILL, BUCKLEY ItETlitK?
A .Move by 11 hfel, the " Boss" Hopes to
Deceive the Vetera.
"All this talk about Buckley's retire
ment from politics Is pure moonshine," said
a prominent politician yesterday. "It has
been circulated for two purposes, and' with
the hope that people would be credulous
enough to believe it.
" In the first place, It is designed to mis
lead the newspapers, if possible, in order to
throw them off the track. There is no
doubt that their constant warfare on Buck
ley and bis methods is hurting the Demo
cratic party, aim if they can be made to be
lieve that Buckley is out it will quiet their
utterances. He could then sit quietly back
and control the machine nnd avoid the
harsh criticism to which he has been sub
jected.
• " Another thing in view was the 'pulling
down ' of the men who are In a state of re
volt. There can be no doubt that hundreds
of Democrats stand ready to knife the
ticket if they know that Buckley dictates it,
and by a pretense of retiring he hopes to
allay their fears aud keep them in line at
the polls. It is a very shrewd move, but It
will hardly deceive ninny intelligent peo
ple." _____ -;
German Democrats.
The German-American Democratic Club
held a meeting in the hall on Sixth street
last night, with Henry Troppman in the
chair. Justice of the Pence Reimer sent a
letter regretting bis not being able to be
present. *
William Peters, candidate for Supervisor
of the First Ward, addressed the club at
length, and bis candidature was indorsed
by the club.
The club indorsed the candidacy of the
following: Herman Joost for Supervisor of
the Eleventh Ward, Deiderich Becker for
Supervisor of tbe Eighth Ward, Christian
Reis for City and County Treasurer, Slate
Treasurer Herold for renominatiou, Henry
Pilstpr for Supervisor of the Ninth Ward,
and Julius Keimcr for Justice of tbe Peace.
Poor Facilities for Naturalization.
There is a growing dissatisfaction among
the Republicans because of the measures
taken to secure the naturalization of voters.
No effort has been made to induce the
Judges to hold night sessions of the courts
for this purpose, as has been the custom in
years gone by, and while the Democrats are
busy as beavers with a number of men at
tending to their end of it the Republicans
have done little or nothing. Just where the
blame lies no one seems to know, but it is
claimed that of the entire number of those
thus far naturalized the Democrats have
outnumbered their opponents in the ratio
of at least five to one.

The Teacher of Mnemonics Has
Been Sent to Stockton.

Mrs Mary Gilbert Commits Suicide— A Branch
Public Library— The County's Assess
ment Boll— A K. of P. Hoax.
Professor W. C. Gaston, the teacher of
mnemonics who jumped from the fourth
story window of the Brunswick House on
Tuesday, was examined before Commis
sioners Hess and Pratt yesterday after
noon, and committed by Judge Ellsworth
to the Stockton Asylum. He was very
noisy and violent all night at the jail, and
neither ate, drank or slept until 10 o'clock
yesterday, at which time he fell asleep from
exhaustion. During the examination be
was calm and told a story of having had a
two days' argument with the devil over the
divinity of Jesus Christ, and finally was
asked if fie wanted to see Jesus. On reply
ing that he did, Christ appeared to biin and
talked with him. Then Christ told him
that if he believed him divine he might
walk out of the window to the ground be
low and he would not be harmed. He said
he deliberately walked out, knowing he
would not be harmed. He struck on the
awning, he said, and slipped down. An
unseen power caught him just before he
struck the pavement and prevented him
receiving any injury. Gaston is said to bo
addicted to stimulants and chloral hydrate,
and was at one time a prominent member of
the bar of lowa, but lost his practice through
intemperance. He was for a time in prac
tice at Portland, Oregon.
Louis Peres yesterday sued Mary Ives
Crocker and Kate May Dillon to quiet title

SUFFERINGS ENDED BY DEATH.
At about 7 o'clock last evening Mary
Gilbert, ageu 50, residing at 700 Twenty
sixth street, between San Pablo avenue and
Grove street, cut her throat with a table
knife and then indicted a wound iv the ab
domen, from which the bowels protruded,
.->be was taken to the Receiving Hospital,
where it was found that her windpipe had
beeu severed. Drs. Crowley, Legler, Dunn
aud others attended her and dressed the
wounds. She was breathing through the
hole iv the windpipe, the throat being
clogged, and it was necessary to put a tube
in. It was considered doubtful whether she
would live throughout the night The cause
of her attempt at self-destruction could not
be ascertained. Her daughter, a young
woman, said that her father had gone away
about a week ago and had not returned.
She was much distracted over her mother's
condition. It appears to have been a case
of domestic difficulties, by which the
woman's mind was affected and the deed
committed during aberration. Death re
lieved her sulfeiings at midnight.
The Sireet Committee of the City Council
yesterday investigated the poultice paving
of Eighth street aud found that as far as
the examination was made it is all right,

disagreement.

gram about the California Knights and the

The examination of William Xoone. ac
cused of forging the name of Mrs. H. L.
Ray to a telegram, resulted in a dismissal
of the charge. Noone had been In jail for
eighteen days, awaiting examination, and
now proposes to bring an action for dam
ages for false imprisonment. Noone was
supposed to -bs implicated with George
Cause in the forgery. Cause, aeainst the
wishes of her parents, had married the
daughter of Mrs. H. L. Ray, who keeps a
restaurant in Alameda. They consequently
endeavored to separate them and sent the
youug woman to Sacramento. In order to
have her return Cause sent a telegram to
his wife,' announcing that he (Cause) was
dying, and signed Mrs. Ray's name. The
young woman returned. Then her mother
had a warrant sworn out for the arrest of
her son-in-law and his companion Noone.
But they have not yet been able to capture
Cause, against whom his mother-in-law is
very bitter.

At the meeting of the School Trustees it
was decided to fit up the empty rooms at
the North Berkeley school-bouse and trans
fer one of the classes of ,the Kellogg School
to it so as to relieve the oveicrowding at

A few weeks aeo J. L. Scotchler, Presi
dent of the Town Trustees, was appointed
a committee of one to confer with the rail
road officials to discuss the subject of the
rate nt which trains run through the town
of Berkeley. The railroad men promised
to run the through trains more slowly, but
said they could not lessen the speed of local
trains without detriment to the public con
venience. If trains run more slowly half
hour trains could not be provided. At the
next meeting of the Trustees a resolution
will be presented ordering automatic bells
to be put up at the intersection of Choate

PANDORA'S BOX.
The Chinese Mission on Fire.
Great Excitement.
Highbinders were in a high state of ex
citement last night when an alarm of fire
was turned in from Box 24 at 8:1.0 o'clock.
Any alarm from numbers within the vi
cinity of Chinatown naturally makes the
sons of the Orient hasten into the streets,
but when they learned that the fire was at
the Chinese Mission the excitement grew
intense. And why not?
A "pandora box" was about to be opened
and Its contents let loose among them.
Every girl in the mission is valued by the
highbinders at figures varying from $1500
to S-jOOO. There are many, perhaps twenty
five, of these girls in the mission. They have
been the objects of more conspiracies and
dark intrigues than auy one unacquainted
with the native persistence and subtlety of
tbo Chinese would suppose.
The eels . soon filled. Highbinders
crowded and pushed each other in their en
deavor to gain entrance to the alley leading
to the cnly open door, one in the rear, for
they saw that the fire was not likely to keep
the girls out long, even if it caused them to
be taken out at all, aud they wanted to be
near enough to seize and spirit them away
if possible. Burly policemen blocked the
way, however, to both white and Celestial,
and, while the whites grumbled that tlieir
curiosity could not be appeased, the mot
ley, demoniacal highbinders cursed and
ground their teeth. To have nearly gained
their foul ends by an accident so unusual
as a fire after so much ol unavailing con
spiracy was like a "Joss-send," and their
lnany-uiembered god was liberally wor
shiped. To be thwarted again by that fire
not increasing was too much for them, and
Joss was forgotten, tho policemen getting
the benefit of the averted attention. Once
they tried by a rush to break the police
cordon, but the effort proved abortive, and
they were driven away.
The fire was caused by a kindling-box
having caught fire and set a neighboring
door smoking. The damage was nominal,
but iho scare to the inmates, who within
saw death and without worse than death,
Hill prove a warning in the future, and
greater precautious will be exercised at the
mission. RS~S

Little nooks mi Kaeti Seed I, id, May

"Did you ever hear that blackberries are
unhealthy food?" asked one member of the
Microscopical Society of another at last
night's meeting at 120 Sutter street.
"No," was the answer. "I have been
eating tbem a long time and can't say that
they are injurious.
"Well, I've heard that they are," added
the suspicious member, " and I'm going to
examine the berries. I have been told that
on each little seed of the berry is a minute
hook which is likely to lodge in the diges
tive organs if a person eat too many berries,
and which may prove fatal."
The matter was then discussed in a des
ultory ny, but ended with an assertion by
the introducer of the subject that he would
not neglect to look carefully through his
microscope at blackberries.
The meeting was very quiet, most of the
members being out of town, but Charles C.
Riedy exhibited a slide showing 200 diatoms
