San Francisco, Feb. !9. Groups ot In
tensely interested youths, gentlemen In
"waters and a smattering of sleek look
. lngr, men-about-town are gathered to
ds y about the. pool room talking of
onlt one , thing the coming light-this
evening between Dave Sullivan, and
Young Corbett. The situation In the
Orient hath lost its charms and bets' on
the whereabouts ot - the Vladivostok
squadron: are all off. Pools are- selling
ftt two to one, In favor of Corbett, but
Xave is as confident of winning as the
Japanese, are that they will take Port
Arthur. - A few, days ago be' wired his
manager, In Boston to bet $2,000 that
the Sullivan banner would be raised in
victory -at the ringside and , word , has
been returned that the money has been
plaocd. Betting has been lively snd a
great deal of coin will change hands on
the result. ... . ,
. . Corbett and Solllvan.
Corbett is perfectly satisfied that be is
on the road to win and that he will pol
ish Brltt off and then have a turn with
McQovern; He seems to be more inter
ested In the track than In the coming
battle of the ring and has, kept the
bookmakers busy nearly every time ho
placts his coin.. In spare ; moments he
has conferences with Jimmy Britt and
both have buried the hatchet and signed
articles for SO rounds calling for 1J0
pounds ringside at o'clock before the
Hayes Valley club, March 81. If Cor
bett losei the gate ' receipts will be
evenly divided, but In the event of his
winning he will draw down (0 percent of
the gross receipts, leaving Brltt 40 per
cent. McQovern tips Sullivan to win despite
the heavy odds against his favorite.
'I'his confidence Is probably due to the
recent victory of Sullivan over Jimmy
Brlggs at Boston, and the fact that he
scored four victories over Kid Broad,

team yesterday afternoon by the score
of 5 to 1. The- game was Interesting
from start to finish and was witnessed
by a large crowd. ..
Ike Butler's pitching was ah excellent
exhibition, and bis months' workout
seems to have put him in line shape.
Vic Drlnkwater, who goes to the South
ern league this season, was Butler's op
ponent and was found frequently by
the Portland sluggers, especially by Na
deau. and Drennan, who secured three
hits ea6h, a two-bagger and a triple
being credited to the first named. '
Eddie Householder was robbed of -a
clean home run by -a pretty running
catch by McCreedte. .
Bteefman played an excellent gam at
first base. Shields ' and Drennan re
trieved everything that came their way
in the outfield.
Ike Francis made the local fans gasp,
and Incidentally caused Morris Steel
man's fingers to burn from the swift
and accurate throws he made from third
to first. Danny Shea caught a steady
game, while Freeman's work at second
waS at times sensational. Among the
players who made up Jack Huston's
team were: Eddie Householder, Billy
Murdock and Curtis In the outfield, Hus

Drlnkwater pitcher, and Bear, catcher.

Aluminum coaches that weigh r"?
tenth of the present passenger coach"'
on transcontinental lines, and gliding
smoothly over a perfect roadbed at . a
speed of 100 miles an hour is the 1st
est dream of "Kit" Carson, one-tins.,
engineer, now city ticket agent for the
Rock Island. ,
"Talk about waste," said Carson dole
fully, as he heard someone speaking
of the amount of coal that blows un
consumed through the firebox, "did you
ever stop a think about the power
thrown away in hauling dead loads? Take
the Pullman-aleeper. - It has a gross
weight of about 100.000 pounds and car
ries at the most 3,00s pounds of pas
sengers; that is, we haul about 30 pounds
dead load for one pound of paying bur
den. No wonder we have to pay three
cents a mile for passenger traffic. Ot
course, there is less of waste in the
freight-hauling proposition, but still the
conditions are by no means ideal, for
it is never better than pound for pound.
Coal combustion " is certainly' wasteful,
and constitutes a' great per cent of the
cost of operation, but it does not com
pare to the cost of- hauling over the
country, over the mountains, down the
steep grades and about winding 'preci
pices, the excess dead loads that every
road in the country Is today carrying.-
"I do not believe that this wasteful
haul is necessary. I never have thought
there was any especial excuse for suoh
cumbersome cars, except that poor road
beds require ballasted cars, sleepers
loaded with railroad ties, for example,
to save the passengers from undue vi
brations. But a heavy steel track, mod
ern roadbed on every mile of the coun
try's systems,, and straight stretches
for miles and miles, will cut out this
need for ballasted cars, and certainly
will allow a great diminution In the
weight of passenger coaches. For my
part I think the day will come when a
coach will be heavy that Is over 10,000
pounds, and when aluminum will take
the place not only of steel and iron, but
also of hardwood.
"Collisions? Well, I guess not," re
plied Carson warmly, when it was sug
gested thst light coaches would not
stand a crash very well.
'The model coach is going to be
cigar-shaped, with a smooth, rounded
surface that won't collide with any
thing. When two of these cars meet
head on they will simply turn each other
aside, and the passengers will nch. know
there has been a collision unill they read
about It next morning. I tell you the
day is coming when coaches will be so
light that on a good down-hill stretch
the blame train will not hit the track
more than once, or possibly," added Car
son hastily, "twice, in the course of the
"Air ships'." cried Carson Joyously,
as a listener ventured a suggestion about
the future means of quick transit
"Now you are talking. If I live 50
years I am going to be able to hit you
on. the shoulder In the morning and
say Hello, old, man; yea, dropped into
New York last night and saw the horse
shew. I took the upper strata going.
because I didn't have only a couple of
hours: but coming back I stoped at St
Louis and took the lower strata into
town." Why, it won't be more than 20
years before a man can get one course
of his airship dlnlng-csr dinner at Chi
cago, and be smelling the odors of Cuba
before his wine arrives. But then, when
every man has a private ship of his own
tugging at his door post he won't bother
about meals he will take the thought
treatment and three tablets and be sat
isfied for a week.
"Do you think you will ever see it?"
inquired a clerk.
"Of course I will if I live long

are making an effort "to fix the case'
la , which Stone Is charged with" de
frauding Dr. C. W. Cornelius out of 3300
on a timber land deal. 'The case was set
for March 7, and according to the ex
planation given, was stricken from the
calendar because on that date O'Day has
to appear In coUrt at Spokane, Wash.
The case will be reset as soon as he re
turns. "I prosecuted Stone and the Jury dis
agreed," saM Arthur. L. Spencer, the
deputy 'prosecuting-attorney. "He will
be given another trial during the March
term.". v. . .
"I went to-Judge Cleland and asked
him to postpone . the. case until I re
turned from Spokane.- said Attorney
O'Day. "There has been no attempt to
compound a felony in this case and such

"One of the most important features
In handling contagious disesse-lsthe
absolute necessity of wearing protective
clothing and of thoroughly disinfecting
oneself." said the' health officer after an
exposure. "I always use a strong solu
tion of bichloride of mercurv for m

my nair ana a long rubber coat to pro
tect my clothing. These articles are
carried in an airtight grip, in which is a
solution of formalin, so that the cloth
ing is immediately fumigated every time
It is shed.
"The utmost care has to be used to
disinfect the entire surface of a person
when an exposure to the disease is made,
both In order tj avoid the disease and
to prevent carrying It to others. The
State board of health recommends in
rule 19 that such precaution be exer
cised. No, I have never had smallpox
and have been exposed so many times
that ! have no fear so long as I use
these precautions. Of course, I have
been successfully vaccinated, and vac
cinate afresh after every bad exposure
and at regular intervals of time.
That is the first step taken on a case
of smallpox being reported, to see that
all persons who have been exposed- sre
vaccinated, and .1 always insist on that
precaution. Next Is a thorough fumi
gation, of the premises and disinfection
of 'the person and clothing of all people
exposed before a quarantine is removed.
In accordance with rule 21, section C."
