G. E. K. ROYCE WILL
BE TRIED AGAIN.
The Supreme Court Reverses
the Order Denying a
NOT SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE.
He May Have Been. Able to Re
fund at Any Time, the
C. E. K. Royce, the defaulting treasurer
of the Veterans' Home Association, has
been given a new trial by the Supreme
Court upon the ground of the insufficiency
of the evidence introduced in the trial
court. It had come before the Supreme
Court upon a writ of error as well, which
writ had been heard in department, but
the question of the insufficiency of the
evidence was heard in bank.
On February 21, 1893, Royce was treas
urer of the Veterans' Home Association
and on that day received a draft for the
benefit of the association, for $10,350. On
the same day he deposited the draft with
the Crocker-Woolworth Bank to his own
The president of the bank testified that
„he did not hear him (Rovce) give any
direction as to whose credit it should be
placed, and that the bank did not place it
to the credit of the association because the
association did not have any account on
the books. Royce informed the bookkeeper
of the association that he had received the
draft, and it was entered on the books of
the association. Subsequently the associa
tion received from Royce $8310 35 of this
money, and the charge of embezzlement
placed against him rests upon the balance
of the. draft, amounting to about $2050.
In the opinion the Supreme Court com
ments as follows: ""What became of this
draft does not appear. Appellant may
have had it ready to be produced whenever
called for. The by-laws of the association
require the treasurer to deposit all funds
over a certain amount in 'such bank as the
board of directors may direct.' It does not
appear that the board ever made such
direction or named any bank in which such
deposits should be made.
"The by-laws also provide that all moneys
in the hands of the treasurer shall be
turned over to his successor, but it does
not appear that appellant ever had a suc
cessor in office. It is also provided in the
by-laws that the treasurer shall make
reports of money received and expended to
the association at the annual meeting,
and also at each quarterly meeting of the
board of directors, but there is no evidence
of any such yearly or quarterly meeting
between February, 1893, and the date of
the indictment, which was June 2, 1893, or
that appellant failed to report said money
or made any report in which it was not
mentioned. There is no evidence that any
demand was ever made upon appellant for
said money by the association, or by any
officer or agent thereof, or by any "other
"The conviction rests, therefore, solely
upon the fact that the money was depos
ited with the bank on February 21 to the
personal account of appellant under the
circumstances above stated. This was
evidently the theory upon which the in
dictment was based, for it was alleged that
the embezzlement was committed on the
24th of February, just three days after said
deposit. It is true, as the court instructed
the jury, that the crime charged might
have been shown to have been committed '
at any ti*-=e before the date of th* ihd'ol
ment; but the deposit of the money in the
bank on February 21 was the only fact
proved upon which a conviction could
Lave been based. And that fact is not
sufficient to support the verdict. It does
not appear that he was ever called upon to
apply the money to any need of the asso
ciation, or to make any particular use of it,
or to put it in any special place.
"It is true that'he drew one or two checks
on the Crocker-Woolworth Bank, but it
does not appear that he had no private
funds there, and the testimony of the pres
ident of the bank leaves the impression
that he had been keeping an account with
that bank. He may nave had the money
ell the time ready to respond to any de
mand of the association. In fact there is
no evidence that he did not pay it over to
the association. It is clear that he did not
clandestinely keep it, for he reported it to
the bookkeeper. No doubt embezzlement
may be established and in certain circum
etances without proof of demand, as when
evidence clearly shows an appropriation
by an employe of an employer funds with
Intent to do so fraudulently and feloni
ously. But there is no such evidence in
the case at bar. It is sometimes held in
civil cases that the deposit by a trustee of
trust funds to his personal account is suffi
cient cause for charging him with intent,
hut such fact alone is not sufficient evi
dence to convict a man of a felony."
ATHLETES ARE- TRAINING.
•University of California Men
Preparing to Meet East
Field-Day Trials Will Decide
Who Will Participate
An athletic team from the University of
California which will compete with East
ern college teams is being drilled. The
work done on the two field days to be held
during the next two months— freshman
sophomore try-off on the last Saturday in
March and the U. C.-Stanford field day on
April 20— will in a great measure deter
mine who will be the representatives on
the team which will in all probability go
East in June.
Yesterday morning Captain Koch issued
the following orders:
Beginning to-day, February 28, the roll will
be called for candidates for the track team in
the gymnasium at 5 v. M.
Regular gymnasium work will be taken at
that time four times a Mondays, Tues
days. Thursdays and Fridays— after which
men are expected to go to the track under the
direction of I). Winter.
Other things being equal, the choice of men
for the team- will depend somewhat on regu

IT IS TO BE DESTROYED.
Haight-Street Ball Grounds
Will Be Sold for
The National Game Cannot Be
Revived for at Least An
The Haight-street baseball grounds will
soon be a thing of the past. The diamond
is to be laid out in building lots and sold
to people who will build handsome homes
beside Golden Gate Park.
This may sound like the death knell of
the national game in San Francisco, and
such, indeed, it is for another year at
least; but time w**ll see the sport"revived,
maybe with some of its old time splendor,
on other grounds and under auspices
quite as favorable as those which made
baseball once a brilliant success.
Since the sport declined in popular favor
the Haight-street recreation park, as it
came to be called, did not pay anything
like a satisfactory income on the value of
the land. The property belongs to the
Crocker estate, which owns four blocks,
bounded by Stanyan, Waller, Cole and
Frederick streets. One of these blocks and
part of the other three were inclosed by
the big board fence that kept small boys
from seeing the games.
Part of Beulah and Shrader streets, which
cross in the middle of the four blocks, was
likewise included in the baseball ground.
But the fence is to come down and the
cross streets to be opened so that the land
may be sold at public auction on April 25.
Yesterday the Crocker Estate Company
authorized Baldwin & Hammond to dis
pose of the blocks bounded by Stanyan,
Waller, Shrader and Beulah streets, and
later on the other blocks will be graded
for building. This will place on the real
entate market one block 275x412:6 feet and
another 275x260 feet, with surrounding
streets macadamized and supplied with
sewers and water mains. With such
facilities it is very likely that several hand
some residences will spring up this sum
mer over the site of diamond and grand
The grounds were opened on March 24,
1887, under the management of Henry
Harris, with the Haverleys, Pioneers, Oat
lands and S-icr-imcuit:^; tho,chrrm_-ior*
lists. Playing was kept up continuously
until August 15, 1893, when the league dis
banded and the game ceased for lack of
patronage. The greatest crowd that ever
attended a game there was gathered on
November 25, 1889, when 22,000 persons
paid admission at the gates. In addition
to this great number there were many
thousands of ladies and the usual number
of eomplimentarv-pass visitors.
"During 1887," 188S. and 1889," said Mr.
Harris last night, "it was a common thing
to have 15,000 people at the Sunday games.
Less than that number was- considered
small. The largest amount of money real
ized for one game was taken in on Thanks
giving day, 1887. Then we used to have
the champions of America, and all the
great players appeared at one time or an
other. All the prominent Eastern teams
gave exhibitions and played series of games
at Haight street the Chicagos, All-Amer
icas, St. Louis, New Yorks and Bostons.
Ana Portland played off in the coast
championship of 1892, which was won by
the San Jose team.
"Efforts have since been made by Mr.
Gilbert to revive the sport. He had the
Southern Pacific with him, but it failed in
M;*. Harris was asked if the closing of
the grounds meant that baseball would
be only a memory here.
"I hope not," was his reply. "I am as
enthusiastic as ever over baseball and be
lieve it can be again made popular. It is
my intention next year to open the game
on a large scale and to organize a coast
league. We will play all along the coast
as well as in San Francisco, ana as this
Elan was never attempted before it may
c successful. Now that the Haight-street
grounds are tA go I might as well tell you
that another site has been under consider
ation, though it is not yet decided on
definitely. The new grounds will be very
accessible, and if the game catches on in
popular favor we will have a grand stand
more comfortable and quite as large as the
stand now at Haight street. No, I don't
think the national game is dead in San
Francisco because the historic diamond is
going to be obliterated."
Thirty Thousand Rubber*.
The late Maharajah Dhuleep Singh, a
player much above the average, once told
Cavendish that he had been studying his
(Cavendish's) book on whist. "And I hope
your Highness found it a profitable invest
ment," said the gratified author. "Oh, no;
quite the contrary," was the reply. "Since
I studied the game I have lost thousands."
Cavendish supposes this to have been a
piece of humorous exaggeration on the
Maharajah's part, but there was probably
a residuum of truth in the remark. When
a good player gives up a bold and natural
style and binds himself down to the rigid
system of conventional rules advocated by
Dr. Pole and Cavendish he is not likely to
be a winner at the year's end— not at least
on any large scale.
Cavendish is himself an instance in point,
for he tells us that in eighteen years' play
out of :;o,<ioo rubbers there was only % bal
ance of 628 in his favor. In other words,
he was one rubber to the good in f.'.rtv
nine (about 2 per cent), or one-seventh ofa
point per rubber. This seems a small per
centage for a first-class player, unrivaled
in his knowledge of the game, even if he
played always against first-class oppo

AN OAKLAND BARBER
DIES IN HIS CHAIR.
He Left Home Happy, but Was
Found Dead Twenty Min
TOOK THE MORPHINE ROUTE.
Fireman Schramm's Widow Com
promises With the Rail
Bernard Aronson, a barber, who has a
shop at 451 Eighth street, Oakland, was
found dead in a chair in his shop at 7:20
o'clock yesterday morning. It is supposed
that he committed suicide.
Aronson lived with his wife and family,
consisting of a little boy of 8 years and a
girl of 5, at 265 Eighth street, and yester
day morning at 7 o'clock he left his home
as usual to go to the shop, and was appar
ently in good health and spirits.
Twenty minutes later when Frank Assis,
his assistant, opened the shop he found
Aronson reclining in the barber chair far
thest from the door, his coat and shoes off.
The head of the man was thrown back
some distance on the headiest. The as
sistant went to his employer and saw that
his face was badly discolored from the rush
of blood. He straightened out the body
and placed the head in a natural position,
and then started out to find medical aid.
He came back in a few minutes with Dr.
Kitchings, who saw at once that the man
was dead, and Coroner Baldwin was no
When the Coroner's deputy arrived he
made an investigation. In a* little box on
a stand he found some remnants of a white
powder, also the same looking stuff in so
lution in a glass with water in it, while on
the dead man's lip* and flaked about his
heavy black mustache were also evidences
of the white powder. It developed after
ward that this powder was morphine.
Aronson's wife was notified and became
frantic when she was told that her hus
baud had killed himself and she tried to
throw herself from an upper window of
her house. When she became in a measure
calmed down she said she knew no reason
why her husband had killed himself. He
had left the house in the morning in an
unusually happy frame of mind.
It was "reported on the streets that the
barber was the administrator of an estate
and was not able to make a final account
ing, and that yesterday was the last day
he had to file the papers.
He was administrator of the estate of his
wife's mother, Mrs. Max Raphael, who
died on March 9, 1894, leaving an estate
valued at $6500, consisting principally of
two houses on Eighth street, one of which
The heirs of Mrs. Raphael were Mrs,
Jennie Aronson, Sarah Raphael, Mrs.
Mollie Marks, Rosa and Ella Raphael.
Aronson filed his final account of the
estate on October 15 last, but had not ob
tained his discharge from the courts be
cause he had not filed the vouchers to
show that he had turned the property over
to the heirs.
The final account shows money on hand
amounting to $439 88.
Aronson was 43 years of age and a native
of Germany. He was a member of Pied
mont Lodge, K. of P., and of I. 0. B. B.
The Coroner's jury last night brought in
a verdict of death by morphine poisoning,

Sidney Holland, who was married to
Delia D. Holland in this city in 1893, has
become weary of married life and has asked
for a separation on the ground of violation
of marriage vows on the part of his wife
with a person whose name is not known.
In the divorce case of Hilda Caroline
Lindernan vs. Andrew Peter Lindernan
defendant has riled an answer to the com
plaint of failure to provide. He alleges
that for more than a year plaintiff has re
fused to occupy the same room with him,
and during that time has consorted openly
with one Peter Nelson.
Dr. Sanders Injured.
Dr. Ambrose Sanders was seriously in
jured yesterday evening by being thrown
down while getting off an electric-car on
Thirteenth street, between Broadway and
Franklin. Sanders received a concussion
of the brain and some internal injuries.
He was taken to the Receiving Hospital,
where he was attended by Drs. Johnson
and Legault. He was afterward taken
home by his wife. The doctors think there
is a chance for his recovery.
Settled Out of Court.
A compromise has been reached in the
case of Annie L. Schramm vs. the South
ern Pacific Railroad Company, and the
plaintiff, on behalf of herself "and minor
children, has accepted $5500.
The suit was brought to recover $20,000
damages for the loss of life of plaintiff's
husband, Henry Schramm, who was a
fireman in the employ of the Southern
Dacific Company and was killed in the

WHIPPED HER HUSBAND.
Mrs. William Mollard of East Oakland
- Publicly Chastises Her Spouse.
William Mollard, a Southern Pacific
gateman, was whipped by bis wife at the
corner of Broadway and Thirtieth street,
Oakland, late last night. Mollard was
talking to Mrs. Samuel Austin of East
Oakland, when his wife and her sister dis
mounted from a passing car. Mrs. Mollard
without declaring her intention seized her
spouse by the collar, and shook him as the
cat shakes the rat.
Mrs. Mollard tore off her husband's col
lar and necktie and had her sister hold
him while she wielded a whip. A big
crowd gathered around the unhappy man
and his revenged wife and Mrs. Austin
slipped away. Mollard appealed to a
policeman for assistance and the officer ad
vised him to mount his bicycle, which was
leaning against the fence, and get out.
The gateman took this advice and while he
sped away into the darkness his angry
wife and here sympathizing sister went on
their way and the crowd dispersed.
Mrs. Austin is the wife oi an East Oak
land real estate man, Samuel S.Austin,
who married her several years ago, and it
is said she brought him $200,000. Of late
there has been trouble between the Aus
tins, and it is stated that divorce proceed
ings will shortly be commenced. One
story Is to the effect that Austin was seek
ing grounds to bring a divorce on and had
detectives watching his wife. It is further
stated that his wife "was' in the habit of
meeting Mollard at Thirteenth and Broad
way ; that Austin knew it and informed
Mrs. Mollard of it.
Hunting- the Giraffe.
The bush is horribly dense and thorny,
and the thorns are of such a nature that
the strongest cord breeches can scarcely
withstand their assaults. The old giraffe
bulls, with hides nearly an inch thick, care
for no thorn in the forest, and plunge
through the armed thickets as though they
were black currant bushes. There is only
one thing to be done — to forget the sickle
thorns and follow them. The spurs go in,
the gallant pony springs forward, and the
chase begins, It is truly headlong. Crash
go the tall giants, their long necks rising
and falling rhythmically, their heads some
times bending low to escape a bough.which
all but scrapes the withers.
lt is wonderful ; how such monstrous
game can evade branches and tack this
way and that among the interruptions and
obstacles of the forest. It is a tough gal
lop, indeed, but in ten minutes the hunter
has driven his pony right up to the tail of
the nearest bull, and, from the saddle, has
fired his shot. He falls behind a little,
then closes up and fires again. Both . bul
lets, planted close to the root of the tail,
have plowed deep into the short body of
the giraffe and done their work. The
painted giant falters, sways, and then in an
instant falls crashing to earth, carrying
with him in his ruin a stout sapling.
Dark chestnut of coat (almost black with
age upon the back), this old bull, measur
ing nineteen feet from the hoof to the tip
of the false horns, forms a noble prize in
deed. As he lies there in the Jong yellow
grass he looks, - surely, the strangest of all
survivals of the fauna of the Dark Ages— a
priceless and pathetic relic left to the mod
ern world by the ravages of time.— The

Tho Abbe's Retort.
A good story is told of Monsignor Mio

passing one day through the pig market,
when a man shouted at him, 'There are
only priests and pigs in this place." The
Abbe, as he then was, stopped and said to
the man, "My friend, are you a priest?"
"Not >I, returned the other. "Then,"

The will of Timothy Gibbin was filed for

year, however, he is left an equal share.
THE FILTHY LAKE
A Sensation for the Consum

PUBLIC OFFICERS AROUSED.
A Hasty Clearing Away Yester
day of the Rotting
The exposure of the contaminated con
dition of the water in Temescal Lake, one
of the Contra Costra Water Company's

Oakland. It has been the talk of the
town. 5 Much indignation is expressed that
the public health should be endangered'

of the cows lying immediately contiguous
to the lake.
No effort has yet been made to cleanse
the stables and cowyard of the dairy at the
head of the lake. They are alongside the
creek, not more than a quarter of a mile
from the reservoir.
After once seeing the place no one would
care to drink the milk from such a dairy,
let alone the water drained from it. It "is
disgraceful that animals should be kept in
such a foul hole, and it seems almost in
credible that the drainage from such an
undesirable area should be allowed to run
unrestricted into a reservoir used for public
About a mile further up on the main
branch of the Temescal Creek there is an
other and much larger dairy, the cowshed
of which is directly on the bank. The
creek runs through the cowyard.
The appearance of the water discloses its
bad character. It is a dirty chocolate
color and is full of sediment. The
lake itself looks more like a muddy pond
than a reservoir of drinking water. A
cleanly person would shudder at bathing
in it, let alone using it for household pur
Health Officer Adams is not yet decided
as to what he shall do in the matter. Lake
Temescal and its entire watershed are out
side the city limits and, therefore, beyond
the jurisdiction of the municipal authori
ties. Dr. Adams will lav the matter be
fore the Board of Health, however, to
gether with the report of Sanitary In
spector Douglass, who visited the lake
Dr. Adams stated to-day that it would
probably be necessary to proceed under
the State law. Section 374 of the Penal
Code provides that any one who leaves
offal or the, carcass of any dead animal on
the borders of any stream, pond or reser
voir from which water is drawn for public
drinking purposes is guilty of a misde
meanor, punishable by imprisonment not
exceeding $1000. Persons who maintain
vaults or stable-yards, the drainage from
which enters any stream, pond or reser
voir used as a public water supply, are also
subject to the same penalty. ■ - r >
The Contra Costa Water Company does
not own the water-shed which supplies
Lake Temescal, and hence does not main
tain the nuisances complained of. Never
theless, the flood of filth goes into the
water the company sells to the people of
Oakland. The company draws about one
third of its supply from Lake Temescal,
the remaining being obtained from Lake
Chabot. The water of the latter reservoir
is said to be.in little., if any.-better condi
tion as regards purity than that of Lake
Temescal. The facts published in re
lation to Lake Temescal will probably
lead to a searching inquiry into the
purity of the waters of Lake Chabot,
which is also the drainage mainly
of cow pastures. Some years ago Dr.
Pardee, now Mayor of the city, but then a
member of the City Health Board, made a
personal examination of the Contra Costa
Company's water supply.
His report created a sensation, as it con
demned the water as being so filthy as to
be a menace to public health. A spirited
political agitation followed and the officers
of the company promised to adopt a com
prehensive plan of purifying the water.
The condition of affairs at Lake Temescal,
however, does not speak very highly for
the manner in which the promise has "been
kept. People are saying very harsh things
about the sort of negligence which permits
dead animals to lie by the score in and on
the banks of streams which supply the
water furnished for drinking purposes.
The idea of drinking the drainage from
cowyards is not calculated to allay the
povular irritation on the water question.
Tlie Contra Costa people say they do not
own the land on which the dairies are sit
uated, and are therefore powerless to abate
the fouling of the water.
It is beyond question, however, that the
dairymen are violating a State law, and
the exposure made will have the effect of
causing somebody to institute criminal
proceedings to stop the wholesale poison
ing of the water supply.
Drs. Adams, Akeriy, Pratt and Pierce of
the Board of Health went out yesterday
afternoon to view the sink of corruption,
and report the dairy and surroundings
even worse than— has previously been
stated. They went carefully over the
ground in the immediate vicinity, but Dr.
Adams reports that the cow carcasses had
been removed before his arrival.
Sanitary Inspector Smith will shortly
be sent out to go over the entire water
shed carefully and make his report, and
one weeK from to-night the Board of Health
will meet to take steps looking to the pun
ishment of the people who allow so bad
a state of affairs to exist.
Barnett Rosenthal, the tobacconist, who be
came prominent in the divorce- court a few
months ago, died yesterday morning. Atone
