Ereta's Utopian Dream of
Greater Glory.
Will Meet Carlos and His Friend
Diaz There.
He Owes $10,000 for Diamonds
Which Went to His Lost
General Antonio Ezeta's sodden depar
ture for Mexico en Sunday has given rise
to much speculation as to the causes
which impelled him to choose the Arabic
mode of departure.
All sorts of surmises were yesterday ad
vanced to account for it, and the mnst
reasonable one seems to be that Ezeta
feared that his enemies would undertake
to formulate some new charges which,
while they might not be well grounded,
would hold him ia the expensive clutches
of Marshal Baldwin for an indefinite
That such a plan of action might be
adopted by Salvador was suggested to
Ezeta by his attorney?, and he lost no
lime in carrying out their suggestions.
So arrangements were made in The still
hours of Saturday niglit, and when day
broke on Suuday Antonio was ready for a
change of scene.
Since he left it has been learned that on
Saturday evening Ezeta received a cable
gram from his brother Carlos in .London,
asking him to meet him in Mexico. This
wag one reason why he chose the route he
did ; but there are uthers. The really strong
one, no doubt, was that by crossing the
Mexican line, which could be done in a
few hours, le would be beyond tbe power
of his enemies. Then aeain. the refugee
has builded great hopes upon President
Di 'z' friendship for him and his fallen
cause. Diaz himself knows much of revo
lutions and the causps that lead to them,
and it is possible t'aat bis sympathies may
result in placing Ezeta ia power again.
At any rate, Don Anlonio has great
hopes, for before leaving here he showed
a friend the words, engraved on bis
sword and pistol: "For the unity of
Central America." This sentiment
has been Ezeta's for many years,
and be believes that he will
be able to imbue President Diaz
with the same spirit, and with that done
the rest will be easy. He hopes to interest
Dinz in a Salvadoran campaign, to be
faught for the union of all of the Central
American republics, and when the victory
is won Diaz will becom» the ruler of all of
that great country, with Ezeta as com
mandet-in-chief of tie army.
This may be a Utopian schelfee of the
Salvadoran soluier, but he believes that
it is possible to accomplish it.
A. K. Coney, Consul-General of Mexico
in this city, does not, however, entertain
the same picturesque view of things. Un
like the poetic Autonio, Mr. Coney is prac
tical, and he laughs at the idea that Presi
dent Diaz could ever be enticed into under
taking to control any more people than he
now has dominion over. lie talked freely
about the matter last evening and in all of
his conversation there was not one word
uttered that was unfriendly to Ezeta. He
said that he had called upon him several
times during his enforced stay at the Cali
fornia Ilotel. lie did this because he
knew thai Diaz was Ezela's friend. Dur
ing these visits they talked over the politi
cal situation of Central America, but he
did not agree with Ezeia in his belief that
Diaz would ever engage iv a war with Sal
Another and quite a difl'eynt reason was
circulated yesterday as being the one
which cau?ed Ezeta to depart so suddenly,
and that was that a heavy creditor of his
had arrived here from Guatemala and was
making the life of the exile more burden
some than did the vigilant and high
salaried deputy marshals. Manrilo Metz
uer is the name of the creditor, and it was
said that in those sunny times when An
tonio's star was rising higher every day,
ana before the bloody revolution came, he
bought a $10,C09 diamond necklace
of Mr. Metzzer, who is a jeweler,
which he presented to Miss Ida
Dent Wright, the girl whom he loved and
to whom he expected ta be married. It
was purchased on credit. Shortly after
ward the war came and money grcv
scarce, and so Ezeta never paid the jew
eler. It was said that Me'zger, who ar
rived here on the 18th, came for no other
purpose than to hound Ezeta until the
money was paid.
Mr. Metzjrer was seen last evening, and
he tells a somewhat different story. He
acknowledged the soldier owed him $10,000
all rig&t enough, but he said it indiffer
ently, as if it were a matter in which he
took but very little interest.
"Yes," he staged. "Ezeta does owe me a
little matter of $10,000. He bought a num
ber of very valuable diamonds and other
Jewels aud he did not pay. But I did not
come here for the sole purpose of collect
ing the money. I am on my way to
Europe and I thought, perhaps, if Antonio
bad the money handy 1 would take it
along with me, but as he did not I will go
on my way without it quite content. 1
thought possible Antonio bad made his
brother Carlos disgorge and was conse
quently Hush, but I ti.id it is altogether
Mr. Metzger, who is without doubt the
model creditor of all the world, spoke very
highly of Antonio. He said he was thought
well of by many people in Salvador, and
was especially adored by the army, who
would be at bit back again if such a thing
were possible.
General Bolanos and Bustameme were
leit behind by Ezeta, but they were not by
any means deserted by their leader. For
be. did for them what it was within his
means to do. He had but little money
lift. His brother Carlos bad sent him
$8000 in all, but bis expenses were some
thing enormous. During the trial they
amounted to no less tbat $300 a day, which
iucluaed SSO a day for five guards which
Marshal Baldwin was kind enough to en
viron him witb.
So he left Bolanos and Bustamente suf
ficient money to pay their passage south,
and they will both leavn on the steamer
tc-day. Bolanos will go to Acapulco, and
Bustamonte will stop oft at Mazatlan,
where lie has friends.

It Causes Wild Commotion at a
Market-Street Drugstore.
A live electric light wire caused some
wild 'commotion at t!;e Owl drugstore,
Market street, about 10 o'clock last night.
The lowering and raising •of the awniug
had worn away the insulation and the Iron
rods supporting the awning had become
charged with the electric current.
At the entrance to the store there was a
small showcase wit i a metal frame. Clay
t >n Walsh, one of the clerks, and another
clerk named Ward went to carry the show
case inside the store before closing. Walsh
bad hold of the metal frame and it hap
pened to touch the metal plate screwed
mt . the wood supporting the iron rod of
tiie awning. The metal frame i»I MM sbow
ctse was immediately charged with tie
current and it shot through Walsh, emerg
ing from his left big toe into trie ground.
Hi- whs knocked across the sidewalk in an
unconscious condition.
Ward was more fortunate. He was
knocked down by the shock but quickly
picked himself up again. Walsh was
taken to the Receiving Hospital in the
patrol wagon. Before reaching the hos
pital he had recovered consciousness, it
was found that his knuckles and his big
toe were badly burned, an<i it will take a
few days before he entirely recovers from
the shock to his system. He lives at 303
Ivy avenue.
J. P. Connihan, an inspector of the
Edison Electric Light Company, was sent
to find out what was wrong witb the
wires. It was not long before it was made
nainfully manifest to him. He took bold
of the live wire. There was a sizzling
noise in his rignt hand aud he turned a
somersault on the sidewalk. When he re
covered his senses he made his way to the
Receiving Hospital to have his band,
which was severely burned, dressed.
Then he returned and fixed the wire so
tbat it would not play any more tricks.
How Max Popper's Case
Was Disposed Of.
There Is No Compulsion About His
Giving Testimony Before the
Grand Jury.
In Jrdge Slack's court yesterday Max
Popper appeared to show cause why he
should not be punished for contempt of
court in refusing to answer the questions
of the Grand Jury in relation to the al
leged bribery of tbe Board of Supervisors
in connection witb tbe street-sweeping
Mr. Popper was on band early in the
courtroom, and was accompanied by his
attorney, Patrick li°ddy.
When court was opened District Attor
ney Barnes read the affidavit of Sydney
M. Smith, which stated that Popper had
been subpenaed as a witness by the Grand
Jury, and that he bad refused to answer
certain questions which wcrn put to him.
Mr. Popper's attorney at this point in
troduced a demurrer to tbe complaint. It
was based upon the following grounds:
First, tbe facts stated In said atlidavit do not
constitute a contempt of Uiis court.
Second, that the Grand Jury Had no jurisdic
tion or authority to hold an investlgaMon of the
matters slated In said aflidavit, namely, to bold
"an Investigation of certain matters touching a
legislative body, to wit: tlie Board of Supervis
or* of the city and county of San Francisco."
Third, mat tbe said subject of investigation
Is indefinite, uncertain, ambiguous, iv mat it
does not appear that ttie Grand Jury were-lo
vestiKatiug auy matter of a criminal nature
touchine or concerning the said Board of Sup
Fourth, that it does not appear from said
affidavit tbat the qu stiooi propounded to tbe
respondent by tin- Grand Jury were material
or relevant to s;id iDYesuiKation.
Fifth, that the Grand Jury had no authority
to put to the lespondent the first Interiogatoiy
set forte In said affidavit for tne reason that It
called for secondary evidence, which said
Giand Jury had no authoiuy to receive.
Attorney Reddy argued the grounds of
tbe demurrer at some length.
District Attorney Barnes said, in re
sponse, that the only thing be was anxious
about was a decision ( ,f the court not only
on ihe demurrer but on the constitutional
ity of the itaiutes which Keddy cited.
Judge Slack settled matters by stating
that be was bound to follow the decision
of tbe Supeme Court in the contempt pro
ceedings against -Nobby" Clarke, wherein
It was held tltat a man could not. under
any circumstances, be compelled to give
evidence which would tend to incriminate
himself. So the citasion against Mr. Pop
per was dismissed and he and his con
freres drifted out of the courtroom, feeling
in tbe best of humor.
Passing Worthless Checks.
James Mahou, who has been passing a
number of worthless checks upon lodglug
house keepers and ottier3. was arrested on
the water front yesterday alternoon by
Policeman Donohue, and is now in the

tie got 51.4 cash in change. The check was
worthless. The police have been looking
for him for some time.

Lady Suffragists Elect
Mrs. Laura de Force Gordon
Chosen President.
Some Able Quashing by the Presi.
dent, Who Mad the Entire Con
vention Well in Hand.
Yesterday at Pythun Hall the rival
row of the Woman's State Suffrage Asso
ciation was continued.
On July 3 a meeting was called by
President Gordon to elect officers for the
ensuine year; but owing to the secretary,
Mrs. Chandler, going off on a vacation and
neglecting to send out the two weeks' pre
vious notice to each member of the asso
ciation as the constitution provides, it
was decided by the board of directors to
call the election illegal after Nellie Hol
brook Blinn, Hester A. Harland and otb
ers had been elected, much to the discom
fort of Mrs. Gordon's followers, aad call
another meeting for September 10. Here
the light failed again. There was no j
quorum, and once more they were com
pelled to adjourn. Yesterday's meeting
was called to elect new officers, and, a
quorum being present, Mrs. Laura de j
Force Gordon, half an hour late, called
the meeting to order and proceeded to
Previous to her arrival the ladies were j
thrown into a fit of temporary excitement
by the appearance of a postal-card which
contained the following order from Nellie ,
Holbrook Blinn, president of the Equal !
IMghts League, who claimed to have cap- j
tured tne Woman's Suffrage Association in j
the July election and who now control* its
movements: .
A meeting has oeen called by Mrs. Laura ue
Force Gordon lor Monday, September 24.
You are Hereby noi lSed not to attend this or j
any other meeting called by Mrs. Gordon, as
sne is not the State president, By order of
Mrs. N. Holbrook I'.i.inn.
Mrs. li. A. Harland, State President.
State Secretary.
Beads wearing the latest fashions in
hats and veils were put together on this
issue, and it was decided to go on with the
meeting without further distress. Occa
sionally, however, a few of the suffragists
would brace up and denounce such an or
der as "impertinent" and "awful."
Finally the president reviewed the his
tory of the struggle with the opposing
forces, and concluded with: "I hope the
ladies present will stay by this branch of
the State League, as those who were
elected on July 3 are disqualified from
taking office, and tlie business of this con
vention is to elect qualified officers for the
ensuing year. The secretary will please
call the roll." At the conclusion of the
rollcall Mrs. .11 on said:
"I would, Mine, chairman, like to know
whether or not there is an official presi
dent to this association."
The chair replied tartly, concluding:
"As president of the association 1 am only
stating to-day that Airs. Blinn, together
with others, is not an officer according to
the constitution. This whole matter is
out of order, and the chair will not listen
to it."
Mrs. Ballou sank Into her seat, and the
other ladies sighed.
Then Mine. Sorbier, as chairwoman of a
special committee, read the following com
munications: . ;,V
My Dear Mrt. Minn: As you must too well
know that at present there are two societies
claiming to be the State' Woman's Suffrage
Educational .Society, one claiming you as
their prestdrut, tbe other claiming Mrs.
Lama de Force Gordon as theirs. Know
iDg tbat Uils Mate of affairs can only
injure the great cause for which we are
vor ■. int, aud knowing this misunderstand-
Ing tias been caused by a very small number ou
both sides, aud kuowiog iliai the veiy great
majority od both sides are thinking women
who are in good faith and have the good of tlie
cause at heart, and wishing to make every sac
ritice for tlie good of ihe cause, the secretary,
ie;>iesented by Mrs. Laura de Force Gordou,
has ai-pointed me, wiili Mrs. de Bulges aui!
Mrs. Healey", as m commit cc to ask your socie-
U to appoint another committee of three to
meet wuu ns, the six ladies to appoint a sev
eulli oue, to arbitrate and settle tbe difficulty
between tti • societies so that we may be re
united and work together in union for tlie good
of the cause we all liave at Heart. Very re
spectfully yours, Louise a. Sokbieh.
Following is the reply from Mrs. Nellie
Holbrook Blinn, president of the other
My Dear Mme. Sorbier: I received your let
ter yesterday, and can only reply, as I have to
Mrs. Gordon, that I must retain the position I
assumed la*t Tuesday. To do otherwise woulu
be to acknowledge that, I was not legally
elected, whlcb 1 cauuot allow; aud If you liud
been present at tbe July 3 election you would
take the same ground as I. lam willing to
sacrifice always anything for pe.ice wuere it
concerns only myself, but where It is a pilnci
pie, and I know that I am rignt, that It also in
volves others, I must stand nrmly. Mrs. Gor
don lias uot one point on whicti to bang tier
claim, and 1 feel convinced iliat bad she lis
tened to tne promptings ot be» own heart aud
the dictates of uer own conscience she would
liave fallen gracefully into Hue and been with
us to-day, working cheerfully for the cause
which is dear ta us all. Come over aud see me.
Yours very sincerely,
' Kkllie Holbrook Blixn.
This caused a general lull for a moment,
but Mrs. Sorbier again broke out on the
question of nominations.
Bin. Sjrbier nominated the incumbent
j and then moved that the nominations be
j closed. Mrs. Gordon at once jumped from
the cnair and nominated Mrs. Bealey.
This was too much for Mrs. Sorbier, who
called for the original motion to close the
j Dominations, Having received a second.
Her fiilit was on a good natural basis, and
I the ladies were with her, so Mrs. Gordon
I was forced Into putting the motion and
I was declared the unanimous choice. Im
j mediately following Mrs. Gordon's elec-
I tion the other officer* were electsd without
| opposition and witnout price. They are:
\ Mrs. Sorbier, vice-presilent, who imme
j diately took her seat, so that Mrs. Gordon
could get down on the floor and be in the
nominating business; Mrs. Simmonds,
corresponding secretary; Mrs. Minnie B.
Hull, reading secretary; Nellie Bles
sing Eyster, treasurer. Eleven were
required to form a board of directors, four
Ito come from San Fraacisco and the rest
| from other parts of the State. The four
j ladies selected from this section were:
! Laura de Force Gordon, Mrs. S. V. Healey,
Mrs. Lena C. Howes and Mrs. E. P. Kee
ney. Outside members are: Alice M. Mc-
Coruas, Los Angeles; Mr*. M. L. Chandler,
Alameda; Mrs..E. M. Steele, San Luis
Obispn; Mrs. C. C. Calhoun, Berkeley;
i Mrs. J. Hoxie, San Rafael; Mrs. Ellen
Wilson, Elk Grove; Mrs. Charles Bicknell,
San Jose.
This rapid work in narnins the officers
brought forth some loud clapping of bands
and woke up the man who was engaged at
the door to keeD the mob out.
It was then decided to appoint a commit
tee of five to amend the con 6 itntion and
by-laws in several places anl thn chair
named Mn. Haske;l, Mr. Barry, the only
gentleman delegate present. Miss Hilde
brand, Mrs. Brown and Mr 3. Griffin. They
will reyort in two weeks from data,
Just what the two factions headed by
Mrs. Gordon und Mrs, Bliun propose to do
is not known, but some lively work is ex
pected from both quarters.
The Young Woman's Club Also
Hold a Meeting.
In tbe evening after the Uate Suffrage
Association had Cnished the day's proceed
ines the Youne Women's Club held a
meeting to elect a vice-president and
treasurer to fill the vacancies made by the
constant absence of the former officials.
Mrs. Joseph Harriman and Mrs. Esther
Creighton wero selected.
Following the acceptance of six new
members a programme of entertainment
and speeches was introduced in which
Mrs. D. K. Fair, Mrs. J. Soencer, Mrs.
Joseph Haniinan, Laura de Force Go.don
and Dr. York assisted. The doctor, in
closing his speech, nearly caused the ladi-s
to tear up fi* carpet by saying. "I 's all
right, my good women. You are going to
get the ballot and we don't care a button
whether tbe ol j parties like it or not."
Ihe meeting then adjourned to meet
Mondaf night at Mrs. Gordon's rooms.
To Suppress Fraudulent Advertise
ments of World's Fair Awards?
Letters from both the Chief of Awards
(on Agriculture) at the Chicago World's
Fair, Mr. J. S. Browning, and the Judge
of Awards on Hakine Powders, expose the
falsity of the claim made in behalf of a
Chicago baking powder that it received the
highest award for leavening power, keep
ing qualities, purity and general excel
The Judge of Awards says that this
claim is ful«e ; that no such award was
given to that baking powder.
Mr. Browning, m Ins letter already pub
lished, also s:,ows that there was no
;iwarl Kiven to the Ciiicago company for
the best baking powder.
It now nppears further that the analyses
of the powuers exhibited showed a bating
powder made in New York altogether thu
siiDenor nf the Ciiicago powder m both
purity and strength.
The Gnverniuent has prohibited the use
fOl " av , e i" tlsl nK purposes of the medals
awarded by tbe fair. It would be a great
protection to the public if the Government
would also prohibit the publication of false
claims such a^ those that hava been ex
posed in relatiuu lo such awards.

national cnaracter, from which consumers
can obtain t!ie actual facts as to the rela

A Fast Train Over the
Sunset Line.
Service Improved by Southern
Pacific Officials.
Ticket Agents Find a New Way of
Cutting Passenger Rates by
Using Scalpers.
The five Southern Pacific officials who
went to El Paso. Tex., to bold a confer
ence witb otber officials on railroad Rffair*
returned home Sunday. As a result of
their meeting in Texas some imnortant
business matters were acted on, but these
are kept secret. The only definite in
formation given out conc?ri)3 an improve
ment in train service by New Orleans, be
twce-i San Francisco aud New York.
The internal economy of the Southern
Pacific liailroad was considered with great
care, and a better understanding on affairs
was reached in general. Superintendent
of Track Wallace was present at the meet
ing and gave his views on the mainten
ance of tracks, while Superintendent of
Motive Power Small was asked for figure?
and facts regarding bis department.
From San Francisco Superintendents
Fillmore, Goodman, Stubbs, Wallace and
Small went down to El Paso. They were
met there by Julius Kruitschnitt, general
manager of the Atlantic system of the
Southern Pacific, and General Superin
tendent Van Vleck, General Passenger
Agent Morse aud Traffic Managers Schrel
ver and Beim. These Atlantic men went
from New Orleans and Houston to con
fer wiui the officials from California.
The main object of the conference was
to take some decisive action whereby the
passenger service, via New Orleans, could
be lrupioved sufficiently to induce people
to travel south instead of over the Union
Pacific and Central Pacific. In compari
son, travel via Ogden does not pay the
Southern Pacific Compauy nearly so well
as that via El Paso or New Orleans. The
Central Pacifi ends at Ogden, whereas
the souther;! route goes beyond New Or
leans—clear across the continent. Owing
to its greater length it has not been st pop
ular for first-class travel as its opponent.
The time was very much longer and all
tilings being equal— rates, accommed -
tiona, etc.— people naturnlly took the faster
and snorter route. This condition was
met by the railroad officials, who deter
rrined to introduce a first-class weekly
service duting the winter months.
Beginning with November 1, a first-class
train will be run from this city to New
Orleans, and a similar train will leave
tnere at the same time. Every Thursday
thereafter until further notice these traiu^
will leave at both termini.
It is claimed by railroad officials tbai
the trains will be unsurpassed— west ot
Chicago, at least. The cars will be vesti
buled and contain two double drawing
rooms and ten sections in each. There
will be a first-class dining-car, with a
service and table to tempt travelers; also
a composite car consisting of baggage de
partment, barber-shop, bathhouse, smok
ing-room with de«kß and stationery, and a
buffet. The wholo train will be heated by
steam and lighted by Pintscb gas manu
factured on board from crude oil.
The time from New Orleans to San
Francisco will be seventy-seven and a
half hours, aud seventy-nine hours east
bound because the track is heavier. West
bouud from New York to this city ihe
time will be lllV', hours; easi bound 119
hours. This change will reduce tbe time
to New Orleans by twenty-nine hours and
to New York thirty-two and a half hours,
and give the same quick service as over
the Certrai Pacific.
Connection will be made at New Orleans
without an hour's delay, passengers being
transferred to the limited express of tbe
Piedmont Air Line for New York.
The ticket agents without exception
feel that there is no combination on pas
senger rates now, although they do not
openly proclaim the fact For some time
past they have been complaining tbat
"stuffers" from rival lines, and particu
larly from the Santa Fe and the Southern
Pacific, bought tickets at reduced rates
only to catch them cutting. A* a matter
of course the tickets were canceled, in
which case tbe agent selling them lost the
amount he allowed the "stuffers."
A way out of the difficulty has been dis
covered, and ticket-scalpers are laughing
in their sleeves over it, because they art?
making muney fa9t trirough the strife
among agents.
"Tbe scalpers are doing all the busi
ness" said a leading agent yesterday.
"We get very li tie out of it now. If pas
sengers want tickets at cut rates they are
referred to scalpers, who take them back
to the ticket office ana buy their tickets.
The scalper gets a rebate and allows it to
them, while his commission is enough to
satisfy him. We get no commission on the
From another agent it was learned that
tbe scalper divides commission* with
friendly agents, who employ him as a go
between, between them and the purchaser.
The passenger gets a cut rate anyhow,
and by this method there is no fear of loss
from atuffero.
No More Trouble Over Ivan Tread
