BHANKUN OS THE WATEK FKOXT.
J. W. Shanklin, ex-Surveyor General of
California, who brought to the attention of
too Council the city's right to charge for
the use of the water front, lias called atten
tion to another matter of importance. This
is the opening of the parallel streets run
ning south to the water's edge, so that
wharves may be built. The City Council
.'its considered the matter in times past, but
nothing was done for the reason that the
properly at the ends of street? has been
generally believed to belong to private par
ties or corporations and that the expense of
acquiring it would be too great. Ex-Conn
cilmnu McAvoy 6tate» that during his term
a legal opinion was given to the effect that
the city could not open to the water.
Sir. iSi.af.klin bases bis belief on the old
ordinance of 1855, as follows:
Broadway and all streets of the city running
parallel therewith are hereby declared open to
the sou: hern boundary Hue of lite city, and are
hereby constituted public streets and municipal
l iphv. .
The boundary line thus mentioned ex
tended across the harbor to the Aiameda
snore. The ordinance was ratified by the
Legislature, and Sl.anklin takes the ground
that the Water-Front Company or others
wiio occupy the strip about the city's edge
I;a3 no legal right to it.

Closing Exercises of the St. Peter's Boys'
School.
The closing exercises of St. Peter's Boys'
School were held last evening In St. Peter's
Hall on Florida street, between Twenty
fourth and Twenty-fifth, and the attendance
was so large that the aisles were packed
half-way down from the platform. The
hall was tastefully decorated, flags forming
the background of the platform where the
students held sway, and from the ceiling's
center handsome . streamers diverged to
various tarts of the walls over the heads of
the audience, the., patriotic semi-canopy
producing a very pretty effect The whole
ail:>ir was in th« hand* of Brother Director
Eu;ihr;tsius, and his programme proved as*
Interesting as hi* decorations were becom

since ISSo.
QThe boys. Although yoimp. showed evi
dences of careful training. Tho programme
was happily interspersed with music and
song, which rendered the recitations more
agreeable. The young elocutionists were a
surprise to the stranger. Their efforts were
not of the twaddle, sing-soug variety which
is too often heard at school exercises. They
knew their lines thoroughly, repeated them
with force, and their gesticulating was
admirable.
A very effective arrangement in the pro
gramme was one called "Home, Sweet
Iloruf." It was ap e v iescriptive of the
late war, the one side listening and longing
for the glorious strains of "The Star.
gled Banner," the other for the inspiring
notes of "Dixie," but both sides joining
hands on the song of sones "Home, Sweet
Home," which sentiment concluded each
stanza, the orchestra iurnishiog soft music
as ecch air was called for. Hie effect was
at once pretty and patio tic. •'The Kivers

DEATH OF V/. S. HOBART.
■ili.- Mlnlve Man fsucenmba to U«-art IMs-
r»<r-He Learn »6,OOO.i»oo.
W. S. Hobart died at his residence on Van
Ness avenue yesterday afternoon at 2:45
o'clock after ■ lingering illness of several
year?, the immediate cause of his death be
ing heart disease.
He was one of the most prominent of the
self-made men of this State, and was uni
versally beloved and esteemed by the busi
ness is, en of the coast
W. B. Hobart was born in Rutland, Yt.,
In .1840, and came to this coast when but 18
years or age. Like thousands of other
young men his object in emigrating to Cali
fornia whs to make a fortune in the mines,
and, unlike tens rf thousands of men and
boys he succeeded. His first ventures in
mining was on the Ccmstock, then in its
infancy as a mining country, and from pros
pecting on his own account, unsuccessfully,
lie went to work poshing an ore-car in the
Gould «.V- Curry and Inter in the Chollar
mines, the wages at the time for car-pushers
being 64 per day.
With his savings Mr. Hobart snnn
branched out into the business of, milling
ore, and by his business tact, sagacity aud
foresight was very successful from the
start. Having unbounded faith in tho rich
ness of the region in which he was located,
Mr. Hobart began investing the profits de
rived from bit business in mines and min
ing stock, and us the country about him
was developed Irs wealth grew until he,
when yet a young man, was rated a million
aire mine operator.
Ho then came to this city and bpgan,
with AlvinzH Hayward as his partner, in
vesting wealth in various enterprises, both
in this State and Nevada, among these
being the Virginia un i Gold Hill Water
Company and the Electric Light Company
of Virginia City. He also invested heavily
in real estate until at his death he left an
estate valued at upward of JfsOOO.COO,
which his son Walter and two daughters,
Ella and Alice, who survive him, inherit.
The homestead is an elegant m mson on
Van Ness avenue^ where he died.
A pioneer, Mr. Hobart, did much for the
less-fortunate '4'Jers. He waft, in fact, noted
for his generosity on all occasions.
The trotting and breeding interests of the
State will suffer severely from the death
of >ir. llobart. That well-known trotting
hor.-emaii J. A. McK»'rron was 9<-en on the
subject last night and said: "I fear that
one of the finest collections of brood mares
in the State, or for that matter in An. erica.
will now have to be split ap owing to the
death of Mr. Hobart Mr. Walter Hobart
does not seem to care very much for the
trotting-horse interests, and there is but
little doubs that the horses on the bart
s;ock farm will be sold. Trotting horsemen
think this is a great pity, but It is certain
that if a sale of the late millionaire's collec
tion cf horses be advertised that buyers and
azents from all parts of America will attend
t!ie sale."

The jury in the condemnation suit brought
by the United States vs. 391 boxes of un
stamped opium found in the possession of
Ock Stipy on January 22, gave judgment
against the Government and released the
opium seized.
The case was tried in the United States
District Court, and it was held by the de
fendant that the opium in question was
manufactured prior to October 1, 1890, and
was therefore exempt from the stamp law.
Tbeaf* of the opium not having beea
proven, the jury found that the defendant's
claim was a just one

OAKLAND'S STEADY DIET.
They Lose Another Game at the
Last Moment.
Bat It Took the Angels Ten Innings to
Win Out — Frisco Beats San
Jose.
J. Stafford again demonstrated his value
as an emergency man when all looks dark
and drear. At the end of the fifth inning,
with the score 7to 5 in favor of Oakland,
Southpaw Roach sublet his job to Mr. Staf
ford who went in and submitted his slow
drop ball for general inspection. For some
reason the tallenders failed to connect, bat
the Angels kept righton jolting Mr. Homer,
and at the end of the tenth inning the affair
was settled in favor of the visitors, score 10
to 9.
Thus at the last moment did another game
slip from the longing grasp of Colonel T.
Pains Robinson, so called because he is still
having trouble with his head. It was a
swatting match from beginning to end. in
which the teams broke even in the matter
of numbers, each scoring 16, but the Angels
did most ot their hitting at the right time.
Some long-distance drives and a few
bungles in the lath placed the visitors on
an equ -.1 looting with their opponent* and
in the tenth three singles in a row drove in
the winning run. •
OAKLAND'S 1 1.1. AM' MAHT.
A tolerably fair to medium crowd was
there, and from the tune of the gathering it
was evident that the Colonels were favor
ites. They took the lead at the Starr, driv
ing in four runs in tho first two innings with
six hits, one of which was a greatly admired
triple by Cousin Park, Roach had good
control, but the Colonels would smash the
ball now and then. In the fifth he was
saluted with three singles and a home run
which Cousin Park ripped off, scoring Lou
llardie, who was placed back in the game
because he bats right handed.
Robinson had bis batting list turned bot
t ii;-, de up, and with Mannasau completely
out of it, because he bats let! banded.
Athletes who bat from the port side cannot
connect with the curves of a south-paw
pitcher, which is probably the reason why
the Terror fanned out twice in succession.
The left-bander did not bother Homer, who
touched him for three singles in a row, and
also got one from Mr. Stafford later on.
The veteran Charlie Sweeney a so got along
first rate, and distributed three nice singles
in different sections of the yard.
■ iiorxei: I Mil i: fii:e.
It was a great day for hits all round, but
the Angels did not strike their gait until
after three innings had passed with noth
ing more startling than a couple of plain
hits. But in the fourth they rose up and
made it so warm for Little Jack Uorner
that the wax melted out of his mustache.
MeCanley and Roach each pasted him for ■
triple, while liassaincr, Newman, Hulen
and Rogers tore off singles, all of which
produced rive tallies find placed the visitors
one run in advance of the enemy. Mr.
Hornet did not flinch, but kept right on
pitching ns heretofore.
In the fifth t!:>' Colonels acquired a load
Of one tally, and in the eighth, with two
men out. a trio of timely taps scored another
pair, which made the colonel feel tolerably
serure. But in the ninth, when it was al
most time to quit, Stafford opened out with
a double, which th* Terror might have cot
tut didn't. Then Wright sent bin another,
which he nv.tfetl. nnd a couple of singles
and a few buu<:l«*s scored thiee tallies, ty
ing the score. Oakland f.iiifd to tally in
the ninth and in the tenth Stafford started
with a single and brought in the winning
ran on Tredw ay's shot to right, They play

CRAIG'S CLEVERNESS.
His luutiit lon of Sig-natarea Considered
Wonderfully Perfect.
The arrest of Assistant Secretary Craig
of the World's Fair Commission was the
leading topic of interest at the rooms of the
commission yesterday. Every one employed
there expressed the greatest astonishment
tt Craig's downfall, as he was very popu
lar and considered % most exemplary
yoting man. Before his employment by the
board Craig worked for 10 years for the
firm of Pope A Talbor, bat be left there
suddenly, but for what reasou could not be
Uarned. He married a Miss Uhlnhorn, a
daughter of the sister ol the late Stephen
Fianfciin, for many years secretary of the
California Bank. Craig's wifa is a niece of
Gertrude Atherton, the authoress.
The evidence against Craij; is most con
vincing. The Crocker Lank has alM> Ms
confession. Craiu's dexterity with the pen
was most astonishing. Andrew k. Moul
der, who is an expert in ehirocraphy, stated
that so clever were the forgeries that he
would have paid a million dollars on the
checks. The erasures made by Craig in the
bank-biioKs ware so finely done that they
could not be noticed unless held up to the
light.
From the dates of the checks it appears
that Cram had not beco iv tlie affiee 18
hours wli'-u be began his forgeries. lie is
thought to have been very foolish to
have sacrificed a good career for the sake of
a few dollars, as detection in time was
inevitable. His salary was $150 a month.
Be popular w:is ha that he was mentioned
us the successor of Secretary Thompson,
when that gentletnau was spoken of as re
signing soiun time ago. His only explanation
when a«ked about his crime was that he
was crazcl by the importunities of duuners.
Craig's place was temporarily filled yes
terday by the appointment of John Mask
ley as assistant secretary.
CoinmUsluiiers Phelao, Scott and Rose
are now Iv Chicago, where they will open
the bids fnr the California World's Fair
Building. They will accept them condi

The i ther four commissioners will prob

The Crorker-Woolworth Bank, which has
to stand lhn lost, will press the case against
him.
Complaints charging Craii; with forgery
were li ed in the i>olico court yesterday.

The ucembera of the Republican Alliance
turned out in full force last night in order
to give a send-off to J. N. K. Wilson, who
will leave for the East la a few days. The
rooms of the Alliance at 115 Towell street
wore crowded with politicians from 8 till 11
o'clock, all having gathered to wish one of
their leaders bnn voyage. After several
stirring songs and instrumental selection*,
loud calls were made for Mr Wilson. He
responded in a long informal talk. In which
he said he M as going East on personal busi
ness, but that he would not forget to shed a
political tear on the wr.y. He reviewed the
history Of the Alliance »nd the principles It
rer-re^ented. 11" askpd all lbs members to
stand by the organization in the future as
they had done in the past, and he predicted
victory for the Alliance when the sun went
down in November DA. He told those
present thai if the organization were suc
cessful, the offices wonM go to the worker*,
and they would not be charged or assessed
one cent of their salaries.
Wilson's speech »'■« greeted with lond
cheering. He was followed by John T.

mtresslty of overthrowing the bouses of

HEMMED IN BY ICEBERGS.
Th« Perilous Position of tha Ship Habi
tant on it K<>cent Voyage.
.New York !'re-i«. May 'JO.
The experience of Captain Potter and his
crew of the British ship Habitant on the
voyage just ended is one that every man of
the number will long remember. Each one
of them is a sailor tried and true, yet never
had any of them been so near to death as
when their stanch ship ran iuto an icefield
during the fog a week ago* and for forty
eiirht hours was buried with her living crew,
with twenty Jive mammoth icebergs forming
■ barrier through which the vessel could
not pas*. The ship reached quarantine last
night, and Captain Potter told the story of
Ins narrow escape.
The Habitant comes from Hull. She made
a prosperous voyage and was off the Banks
when a heavy fog set in. There was scarcely
a breath of wind blowing. The ship was
moving slowly along. Lookouts were sta
tioned forward to watch for vessels and ice
bergs. Night cams on, throwing out a
blanket of darkness, wliieh increased the
thickness of the fo*. About midnight the
bound of something grating on the side of
the vessel attracted the attention of the
man on watch. The captain was called,
and although all hands peered over the side
it Ml impossible to see anything, The men
believed it to be floating ice or an iceberg,
but none suspected the real situation.
- The Habitant remained stationary during
the night. When the sun ro3e the following
morning the. sun. was quickly dispelled, and
I lien burst upon the astonished gaie of the
captain and crew a sight which was so beau
tiful that It transfixed them for the time,
although all knew that it possibly meant
death. On all sides weremountaineotis ice
berg*, the white crystals glistening in the
light and taking the most beautiful
colors. The ship was entirely hemmed in
by field ice, from which towered ,-25 ice
bergs. The ice was closing in tighter and
tighter, squeezing the vessel uutii it creaked
and groaned with the weight.
There appeared to be do hope of rescue.
For the first 88 hours the vessel remained iv
her perilous position. The sailors whistled
for the wind, but it did not come. Then
they prayed. On the morning ot the third
day the ice appeared to be loosening about
the vessel, then there came a faint gust of
wind, which was followed by a light breeze.
The vessel commenced to move, cutting
her way slowly through the ice until the
last of the big bergs was to be passed. It
was dead ahead and less than 100 feet away.
The ship refused to answer her helm. She
moved ahead until it looked as if she would
be dashed to pieces.
All hope had been given tip when it wa3
seen that she was just clearing the berg.
Tne ship passed the berg so closely that it
was almost possible to touch the frozen
mass. • . .
Tocietrttie fi>ld ie« after this wa« light
work, and the Habitant made Dort without
other adventure.
WASTED GENIUS.
Intellectual Knmtfj I , .1 In »w«p«i>T«
ami Lost to the World.
Did you ever think about the vast quan
tity of genius annually ■wasted on the news
papers by merely local reporters .who are
not paid for originality or style, but merely
to "write it up"? says M. M. Tiumbull in
the Open Court. Probably not, but I have,
and tell you there is enough of it if saved in
book form to make literary fame for a hun
dred men. And let me tell you an
other thing. There are men of literary
fame who steal a good deal of it
and sell it for money as their own.
When a friend shows me a bit of good work,
either in prose or in poetry, and tells me
that ho Just ''threw it off" las; night I
iiralse him openly to his face, while secretly
I doubt his word ; and if the composition is
extremely good 1 suspect that it is due to
the oil and the toil of many nights and the
thought of many days. But when there is
only one evening between the deed and the
printed story of it, then I know that the
writer of iho story "threw it off last
night," and I give him credit accordingly,
a«, for instance, the account of yesterday*
election which I find in this morning's
paper, and which 1 thank the reporter for
presenting to mo in well-fitting dress, with
flowers of humor and fancy in the button
holes, and embroidery ol rhetoric where
such adornment ougbt to be. Like a dash
of Worcestershire sauce on a tender steak,
is the sarcasm, pungent and refined, which
excites my appetites when I read that

ELECTRIC POWER.
Ueunrated by the Falls of the Schnylkill
in PennsrlTmila.
Reading Her»l<l.
The Neverslnk Light. Heat and Power
Company has entered into a contract to
furnish the power for running the East
Reading electric rood. This furnishes
another striking example of the wonders
that are being accomplished by the dis
tribution of electric power. For years and
years the waters of the Schuylkill went
over the breast of the big dam and the
power exerted itself simply in making a
noise. A small part of It is now Intercepted
by a few small wheels that have been har
nessed to dynamos, and the power thus
developed is being carried all around us
and placed at work at the will of those
who own the, wheels. It is pulling the cars
on the Nevorsink Mountain Railroad over
aid around the mountain, lighting up the
park at Klapperthal; it will shortly light
the new hotel and run the machinery con
nected-with it. carry passengers to Clack
Bear and Stony Hun and will do any sort
of work that is required of it within a
radius of miles. '1 he water that so lone
idly tumbled down the face of the dam will
this summer carry hundreds of thousands of
people around on business or pleasure, who
will benefit by its force miles away from
its origin. It will perform work that would
require the services of several hundred
horses and that could not be done as well
by any amount of animal power. The
utilization of this power is an addition to
the wealth of the community more valuable
than a gold mine, and yet it is only the be
ginning. Everywhere through the country
similar power is now going to waste that
be similarly employed, without taking Into
account the. vast power of the winds, the
energies, of which arc being but little
utilized. v «v
LAST OF THE CHARTISTS.
Thomas Cooper Ha« Beon Granted m
I'ennlon by Groat liritnin.
Pall Mall (iazette.
No one will grudee the grant of £200 from
the civil li.'t to Thomas Cooper, the vete
ran ex-Chartist nnd poet. Mr. Cooper, who
is among the lust, if not the last, of the
prominent Chartists living, began life as a
nhoemaker, and while working at his trade
tauzht himself the Latin, Greek, Hebrew
and French languages. At 23 he be
came a schoolmaster, and later drifted
into journalism, oue cf his first ap
pointments being a reportersliip on the
Leicester Chronicle. It was while at Lei
cester that he became an ardent Chartist,
nnd was sent to prison for two years iv
connection witu the riots in the Potteries.
Wlnle in prison Mr. Cooper wrote his
epic po»m, "Tlie Purgatory of Suicides,"
and a seiies of stories called "Wise Saws
and Modern Instances." Some time after
his liberation from prison he turned secu
larist, running a penny weekly sceptical peri
odical. In a few years, however, his opin
ions underwent a complete change, and he
frequently tackled representative secular
ists iv public debute. His brief deviation
from tiie path of orthodoxy hits always b*en
:\ matter of regret with* him, and he has
written several books on Christian evi
dences, on which subject he lectured all
ovor the country for many years. His auto
biography, which appeared some 2<> years

GOOD INTEREST ON A DOLLAR.
S»natnr Sawyer's Return to a Brother
Who I>ld Him n Sm-ill Fmror.
8t Louis l.o!irl)rinocra:.
Senator Sawyer of Wisconsin aorumu
lated an immense fortune in t'»e lumber
regions of the Northwest. He left New
York .state a comparatively poor boy,
with £200 in his pocke', which he earned by
working on a farm. His brother was then
a we;l-to-do faimer in his native State. As
young Sawyer wan bidding farewell,
his brother a«ked him how much money
he had to begin life with in the West.
"l'vo got $199 in my pocket," said the
Senator of the future. His brother gave
him a dollar to make It an even $200. •■ ■
A few years ago Senator Sawyer, return
ing from a visit to Europe, stopped at his
brother's house in New York State to spend
a week amid the scenes of his youth, lie
noticed a cloud on his brother's face. One
evening at supper the Senator casually in
quired into his fortunes, and, before the
conversation closed, developed the fact that
he was troubled over some outstanding
notes. They were not exactly pressine, but
as a thrifty farmer and a conscientious man
generally they troubled him. By adroit
questioning the Senator ascertained the
amount of encli note and the name of the
holder. The next morning at breakfast he
said to bis brother:
"I want to use your horse aud bug^y to
day, to take a drive over the country and
rail on some of my friends. Bui I go alone."
The horse and buggy were got ready, and
away went the eccentric old Senator.
They were sitting together that evening
after supper, when out of in* inside coat
pocket the Senator drew a small package of
papers and handed them to his brother.
They were the notes representing an ag
gregate of £1300. lie had paid and taken
them up.
His brother was at first dumfounded.
Still he was not averse to the Senator's
course. The notes bad been scattered among
three or four men. In the Senator's hands
they were ail together, and then the Senator
was his brother, and it was only natural
that he should prefer him as his creditor.
" Now, you make out a note for the
whole amount and I will secure it," he said.
" When I went West," »aid the Senator,
looking up at the border of the wall-paper,
" you gave me a dollar to make up the two
hundred with which I began life for myself.
Probably you have forgotten it, but I never
forget a financial transaction. Every dollar
I took West earned $1450. The notes 1 took
up to-day were for only 81300, and so, in
stead of being in my debt I still owe you
$150. Here it is." He handed him the
amount in crisp bank notes already counted.

opera-house Carleton hud occasion to send
for the resident manager, and was very
much astonished when the landlord pre
sented himself. Tiio performance was not
a veiy spirited one. O'Brien did not like it,
and so he went to his editorial-rooms and
wrote a review ot it himself. Carleton aud
some of the members got n "scalping" that
made them wince, and Carieton concluded
to ko to thn newspaper office and "see about
it." He called for the mun who wrote the
review, and was almost paralyzed when lie
was confronted by the man wuora h«
already knew as landlord and resident the
atrical manager. The interview ended
pleasantly enough, but Carletou concluded
that it was a case of "whip-saw."
