IX ORDER THAT WE MAY PUT OURSELVES
RIGHT with the public and eradicate a prevailing, but
& erroneous impression, we take pleasure in stating that
on or about the ist of January, 1893, we expect to place on
the market the water of the famous California Geysers
under the name of GEYSER TABLE WATER. We are
well aware that there are some who have been deluding
themselves for a considerable time with the idea that they
have been drinking water from the Geyser Springs hitherto.
We beg now to assure them that this is a grand mistake.
The water of the California Geysers has NEVER YET
been bottled, however much people have been misled by ad-
vertisements of waters, if not affirming, certainly implying
that they come from the Geyser Springs. We desire it to
be generally known that we have secured THE SOLE
RIGHT to prepare this water. We are now busily engaged
putting up extensive bottling machinery at the GEYSERS,
aud we are hopeful that, with the new year, the newest and
best water ever prepared will be available to all. This will
be THE ONLY naturally boiled water on the market.
We offer $5000 reward to any one who will furnish
proof that we are not the FIRST and ONLY bottlers of the
water from the California Geysers.
GEYSER WATER COMPANY,
C. L. D2NCLEY, JR., Manager,

the whisky tax. The whisky now being
made will not go on the market for about
three years. The annual consumption is
30,000,030 gallons and the visible supply on
hand Is only 78,000,000 gallons, 60 they are
masters of the situation.

THE MOBKiye CALL. SAN- FKAXCISCO, WEDNESDAY; DECEMBER 14, 1892- EIGHT PAGES.
JONES ON SILVER.
Nevada's Senator Before
the Conference.
BUT ONE REMEDY POSSIBLE.
The Whole Secret of Financial De
pression Lies in the Demonetiza
tion of the White Metal.
-' Special to The ISHnH Call,
Bt.ussels. Dec. I.".— At tho sitting to-day
of the international monetary conference
Sir Guildford Houlds worth, one of the
delegates, representing the Indian Govern
ment, protested against obstructions offered
by the British delegates nt that nnd previous
conferences, lie charged that but for the
tactics employed by the representatives of
Great Britain the currency question would
have been settled long ago. Sir Guildford
deflated that the siuw.tiou in Great Britain
had greatly changed since November 22. tho
date of the first meeting of the conference,
and he suggested the conference adjourn for
a few weeks to enable the British Govern
ment to reconsider the whole question. He
gave «3 reasons for tlio change in the stout.
lion in Great Britain the statement in
favor of bimetallism made by Archbishop
Walsh. :
Senator Jones made a long address on
bimetallism, reviewing the history of the
question at great length. He argued from
this histoiy that the increase of silver pro
duction had led always to a revival of in
dustry and commerce. The demonetization
of silver had caused a disastrous fall of
prices throughout the civilized world.
Tho prosperity of every country depended
upon tho stability of tin- value of its money.
Uninterrupted employment of the people
could be accomplished only through the in
strumentality of time contract.*], which often
deferred the date of payments many years.
Any increase in the value of the money ou
which the terms of these contracts were
based bore down crushiugly v on employ
ers, ho saw all their foresight thwarted by
a subtle, inexplicable power. Such phe
nomena were followed by the suspension of
work and enterprise, and by enforced idle
ness upon the laboring classes.
Senator Jones then drifted off to the sub
ject of checks, certificates and other substi
tutes for money. "Even when used to the
utmost," said he, "they could bring no
permanent relief to the present situation.
They were mere narcotics. Only the re
monelization of silver would bean adequate
remedy."
Senator Jones was listened to with the
closest attention by the conference.
SPIDERS FOR TYPHUS.
There Be Remedies Worse Than the
Diseases.
Sax Luis Pimm, Mexico, Dec. 13.— The
terrible ravages of typhus fever in this city
are becoming more alarming every day.
There was a lar-re increase in the death
rate during the past week over that of tbe
preceding one. ': "■';■*
A cure for the fever was prescribed by
Father Jose ort«-z of the City of Mexico,
and is being used with remarkable success
on those who can be induced to take it.
His remedy is a drink made out of pound
ing spiders of a certain species to a pulp,
a little pure water being added to the paste.
Convalescence sets in within six hours and
the patient's recovery is very rapid. Father
Ortez obtained this remedy from the In
dians of Oaxaca. The spiders used are of
the variety known here as the aranas caou
linas.

found in Iks incurable illness of the Queen.

California Retarded.
Eugene Gregory, Mayor of Sacra
mento, presided at the meeting of the Slate
Board ol Trade yesterday afternoon.
One of the principal features of the meet
ing was the paper presented by General
N. '.'. Chipman of Red Bluff Showing the
increase of population in California and
its distribution. '
It was shown that the rural population
in the last ten years had only gained 78.113,
while towns and cities have gained 265,323,
or over 77 per cent. More than one-third
of the entire increase has gone into San
Francisco, Los Angeles and Oakland. The
essayist showed tha precise distribution of
the population.
As to the causes of the lack of growth in
so attractive a fruit State, the essay argued
that the first was the absence of transporta
tion competition; the second the failure of
the residents to make their resources known.
The Importance of tho deduction from
these facts was urged, viz., the necessity for
encouraging Immigration, both by advertis
ing the State and agitating the transporta
tion question in California.
Struck by a Cable-Car.
Barney Hoffman, the 13-year old son of
Solomon Hoffman, a tailor living at 960
Folsom street, was seriously injured by
be In ji run down by a cable-car at Market

Young Hoffman had attended the night
session at the Lincoln school on Fifth street
and was on his v. ay home when the accident
occurred. He had a disouto with a class
mate, who chased him, and as the boy at
tempted to .run across Market street a Mc-
Allister-street cable -car, bound for the
ferry, tame. rapidly along, and before be
could get out of the way knocked him down
and dragged him several feet.
■■ The injured lad was taken to the Receiv
ing Hospital In the patrol-wagon, when
Dr. Berry found that his left leg had been
broken and that he was suffering from a
deep gash in the thigh.
After his wounds had been dressed young

THE WIDOWS OF INDIA.
After Their Husband's Death They
Are Subjected to riuch Worriment.
Youth's Companion.
Among the many sad things connected
with the lives of women in India, nothing
is more pitiable than the state of the poor
little widows. A child wife, only 6or 7
years old, is regarded by her husband's
family as the cause, more or less direct, of
his death. She is treated at host with dls
liko, and often with groat harshness" and
severity. Therefore the death of a young
wife before her husband is th-* cause of
great rejoicing among her friends thai she
has thus escaped widowhood.
.They are convinced that tho gods have
favored her, and that she has been advanced
l degree in the great series of births and
deaths through which every Hindoo passes
on hi.-, way to final perfection. -The prayer
of every little girl before marriage and of
every little girl and woman-alter marriage
is that she may never become a widow
The preservation of a husband's health is
a matter of the greatest importance, and on
a certain day of the year a special religious
ceremony Is observed with this end in
view. It is emphatically the "Women's
Day, and occurs about the middle of Jan
uary, when the sun is believed to turn
northward. ,
Offerings are made at the temples, money
Is given to the f priests, pilgrimages are
undertaken, fastings undergone, and vows
performed for the preservation of a hus
band's health and, life. When he is ill the
wife removes s her jewels, puts on coarse
clothing, aud devotes herself to prayer and
austerities. If bo dies her woe begins.- r

The good work still goes on.
And the people continue to contribute to
Tne Call's Christmas Box Bureau.
Yesterday was collection day in commer
cial circles but that did not prevent the
merchants from taking an interest in tbe
work that Tub Call is doiog for the poor.
It is a work that meets the indorsement
of all except certain parties who. having
amassed riches tit on riches from the poor,
say now, "Let the poor remain with the
poor, or let them go to the Almshouse, that

have plenty of means, but who are not over
rich, whose feelings are always with those

It is going on and will continue until the

Many have asked, How will tbe distribu
tion be made? ,-5,
The manager will determine that as soon
as he can ascertain the amount of contribu
tions he will receive. If all who have
promised to sena us something do as they
promised then there will be a great deal to
parcel out to the needy poor.
Each individual case will he studied and
the wants ascertained. A family of six or
eight will certainly receive more than a
family of three. The distribution. will bo

Yesterday the manager investigated sev

and soma undeserving ones. At one house
where he called he met a very surly looking
fudividual who asked what was wanted.
The reply to the question which the
manager asked was given in a tone and
in a manner that are assumed by Third and
Howard street hoodlums.
The surly individual then called out to
some one that"., man wants to see yer."
The manager, who followed him upstairs,
was by this individual invited into a front
parlor, furnished in as good style as any
one in middle life could desire. It showed
that the occupants of the house had all the
comforts of a home and are not in want
The woman asked for appeared in the
ball as the manager was about to enter the
parlor. He noticed a look of annoyance on
the woman's face and observed that she
glared at the individual who had called to
her. Then suddenly her face lit up with a
smile, and she asked, "Why did you show
the gentleman into that lady's room?"
The question seemed to lake the party
addressed all aback and he did not reply.
Then the woman In an apologetic way
said tbat she occupied rooms in the house
for which shu paid a small rent, and that
the room the manager bad been shown into
was that of a lady.
Then she told a story of want and pov
erty, which, upon further investigation, was
found to be without foundation. It turned
out to be a case where a woman in comfort
able circumstances thought she could obtain
as a gift something which is intended for a
really deserving person. She thought that
a little deceit would enable her to obtain
what she coveted. She may get a Christmas
box this year, but it will not be from The
Call's Christmas Box Bureau.
At another place the manager knocked at
the door of a house to which he had been
directed by a woman, who a few days be
fore had called upon him with a story of
destitution. When the manager was knock
ing at the door he noticed that a snow white
lace curtain that hung at a window was
drawn aside aud a woman's face appeared.
As the face wis withdrawn and before the
curtain fell to its proper place the manager
canght a glimpse of several men in the room.
The woman who had called at the bureau
opened the door and instead of inviting the
manager into the house quickly closed the
door after Iter and carried on a conversa
tion on the porch.
She repeated her story, which she seemed
to know by heart, and closed by saying
that anything in the way of provisions
would ba very acceptable.
"Your husband, what does he do?"
She answered that he had employment.
- "And he is earning $20 a week," added
tbe manager.
The woman blushed and stammered
"Yea. sir."
'.-••You have a husband who earns that
much a week, there is no sickness in your
family and you have the impudence to ask
for: assistance that you kuow you do
not need. You ought to be ashamed of
yourself."
Tho woman turned to re-enter the house,
aaylng: "Well, 1 was told that Tin: Call
was going to give Christmas boxes, and 1
thought 1 might as well have one as any one
else." -
- Yes; The Call will distribute Christmas
boxes, but no woman. like this one shall
he the recipient of one if it can be pre
vented, and to that end every effort will be
made. " '
In ono of the houses visited the manager
found a mother with three children. When
he entered she was doing the family wash
ing in a coal-oil can, and on the stove was a
saucepan, in which was boiling a piece of
beef, the only meat meal for the day. She
staled that her husband, after having been
idle for some time, had been given a few
days' employment so as to give htm an op
portunity to earn enough to pay the rent,
which is overdue . '
The cigar-maker's wife whose caso was
mentioned in yesterday's Call was also
visited, and it was found that what she had
stated as to an empty larder was true and
that she bad to stint herself and her chil
dren. Her husband had also obtained a'
few days' work, and what. he will earn will
keep the family for several days.* She re
ceived a supply of food that will tide her
over until salary day. ..."
•' During the afternoon Mrs. Robert Haight
called at Headquarters and said that she
took a lively interest in tho work of The
Call on behalf of the poor, and she be
lieved the method adopted is the proper one
to reach those who are really deserving.'
"My husband," said * this lady, "has prom
ised to send you -something from his store.'
Now, independent .of what .he ■ will do, I
wish to register a contribution. I will
donate some clothing and 1 will make cake
and pies for some of the poor people,- but
you must not send for my contribution until
the day ' beforu yon ;-. commence ;to '■ dis
tribute." - -*"- . t ..~.'.:^::- -
"Mrs. Haight looked around headquarters
and remarked, "Why, that is nothing to
what our merchants ought to contribute to
this ; good i cause. : They ought to be more
liberal than they have been."
Mrs. Annie F. Black :of Seven Pine
Circle, woman's branch of the G. A. R..
called upon the manager to obtain tbe name
and residence of the soldier who had been
in the prison nt Anderson vi lie. She was,
politely informed that without the consent
of the party his name could not be given.
"But,*! said the lady," "we want to give
him a little assistance, ana it is a rule of our
organization that our . contributions shall
be given by one of our committees.". .
The manager promised to visit the soldier
and in* did so.
"You may tell the lady." said he, "that
do not care about parading my poverty. but
it she desires to call 1 will be pleased to re
ceive her."
* When tin* manager visited him he handed
him a bundle of underwear which had been
apeclnlly contributed for him by "a friend
of the soldier who could not purchase
much." lis* was extremely grateful. -
The Call's Christmas box wagon will
travel through tint principal streets to-day,
and those who have not contributed but in
tend to do so can bail the driver and give
what they desire or tell him to go for their
contributions
