Federal Authorities Trying to Trace
The History of This Dangerous An
archist SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 26.-One
of the first fruits of the search for an
archists in San Francisco undertaken
by the Immigration inspectors and
the police department in puruance of
the sweeping order issued by Oscar
S. Strauss, secretary of commerce
and labor, March 3, was the arrest
yesterday of Paul Bignami, a self
confessed anarchist by Detective
Rocca, who had been especially de
tailed by the chief of police.
Rocco found Bignami in a saloon
at Stockton and Union btreets.
Rocca learned that Bignami had been
addressing weekly meetings of anar
chists, advocating the destruction of
the government and the annihilation
of the navy. He placed the Presi
dent, minor heads of the government
and the police in the same category
and believed they should be done
away with. He also made boasts that
the police had no terrors for him,
and said that it would take at least
twenty blue coats to convey him to
any police station. Rocca heard him
say this, and laying his hand on Big
nami's shoulder,- placed him under
arrest. Bignami, suddenly losing the
thread of his crimson discourse, pick
ed up his hat and followed Rocca
with surprising meekness.
CHICAGO, March 26-Three boys
who were distributing circulars an
nouncing an anarchist's meeting to
morow were arrested by the police
in the ghetto last night. The bills
advertised that William Nathanson
would speak. They also said that

NEW YORK, Mar 26.-Epidemics
of infantile disease has caused the
i quarantining of four institutions for
jthe care of children in Brooklyn.
: Measles, scarlet! fever and chicken
pox are the prevalent maladies which
have forced the health authorities to
take charge of these institutions, all
of them crowded as a result of the
financial stringency. Supt. Goodhue,
of the bureau of dependent children
says that much of the sickness among
the little ones is due to a lack of
proper nourishment in the homes
from which they have come.

DRIFTED ROUND CAPE HORN.
NEW YORK, Mar. 2S.-Her cap
tain telling a tale of having drifted
all the way around Cape Horn from
San Francisco, the American full rig
ged ship Wm. P. Frye made port
yesterday. The Frye, says her skip
per, never shipped a drop of water
until four days ago when she ran into
a smart northeastern off Cape Henry.
Otherwise the voyage was a succes
sion of light and baffling winds
and dead calms. "Its the first time
in my sixty odd voyages around Cape
Horn that I ever saw such weather,"
said Capt. Murphy. His matc.IIer
man R. Smith of Seattle, backed up
the captain's story of the placid voy
age by the exhibition of the mute but
veracious evidence of the ships log
NEW YORK TO GENOA.
NEW YORK, Mar. 26. Carle De
Peloggie, an enthusiastic Italian
yachtman, is going to make an at
tempt to cross the Atlantic in a 24
foot sail boat. The start will be
made from New York harbor on July
I and the ultimate destination is to
be Genoa, Italy. The daring task
that Mr. De Peloggie will undertake
is the outcome of a wager between
him and the Marquis Zanottc, of
Tljese two yachtmen have long
been rivals in Mediterranean races,
and Mr. Paloggie made the assertion
that he thought it possible to cover
the long expanse of ocean between
here and the birth place of America's
discoverer, the Marquis offered to
make the bet that he would find it
too difficult a proposition for a boat
of s osmall dimensions to navigate
the long stretch. Mr. De Peloggie
will be accompanied on his trip by
only one person. His partner will
probably be the Viscount de Le
mouinior of Paris.
Although there is no time limit set
by the Marquis Zanotte for the ac
complishment of the trip the young
sailor says that with favorable weath
er conditions he is confident of mak
ing the port of Genoa in 40 days from
the time of starting.
Given up to Die.
B. Spiegel, 1204 N. Virginia street,
Evansville, Ind., writes: "For over
five years I was troubled with kidney
and bladder affections which caused
me much pain and worry. I lost flesh
and was all run down, and a year ago
had to abandon work entirely. I had
three of the best physicians who did
me no good and I was practically
given up to die. Foley's Kidney Cure
was recommended and the first bottle
gave me great relief, and after taking
the second bottle I was entirely
cured." Why not let it help you? :
