- It is a source of no small wonder to competent judges of good
tobacco that we are able to produce for only ten cents a cigar so per
fect from every point of view as our celebrated
General Arthur Cigar,
It is true that the Havana we are now using i3 choicer Havana
. than is being put into any other cigar to-day.- v
It is true that in workmanship, flavor, and thorough reliability the
General Arthur cigar is wonderfully good.
These things are made possible by the n.-nnitudc cf our opera
tions with a small concern it would be absolutely-impossible.
The capital and resources cf the largest cigar manufacturing
business in America can reasonably be expected to produce results
which far surpass the efforts of an ordinary enterprise.

San Jose Has A
San Jose, May 17.-A sharp earth
quake was felt io this city this even
ing. At the L!ck Observatory the
shock continued for ten seconds, and
was severest at 8:26 o'clock.
No damage occurred in this city,
nor, so Tar as could be ascertained,
in the neighborhood.
A mile panic, however, prevailed
for some time all over the city and
surroundings. People rushed from
their homes and remained outside for
hours. Many are bringing their tents
again into use. Two automobiles felt
the shock distinctly, although travel
ing at a rapid rate.
At the Sau Jose Theater, where
the Frank Bacon company was pre
senting "The Hills of California," the
audience commenced to stampede, but
was quieted. No one was injured.
At Los Gatos and along the foot
hills, where the shock of April 18th
was lightest and did the least dam
age, the shock was felt more distinct
ly than in this city. Some plaster was
knocked down in various places.
Post-Mortem Clears Wife
Denver, May 17. Sensational dis
closures have followed the death of
John A. Thompson, aged 65, a former
millionaire stock broker of San Fran
cisco and well known in mining circles
of Colorado, who died Monday morn
ing. At the instigation of his wife,
Mr8. Dora Thompsori, a post-mortem
examination of the body was made
last night in order to determine the
exact cause of death ut-d clear the
woman of a possible charge cf having
poisoned her husband in order that
she might the sooner get posses
sion of the large fortune which he is
believed to have possessed.
Physicians report that death was
due to cancerous ulcerations, and no
evidence of a poison having been ad
ministered was found. The precau
tionary step of a post-mortem was
taken by Dr. Buchtel. who attended
the man during his last illness.

Mizner Trains At
New York, May 17. Wilson Miz
ner is the guest of "Jimmy" Britt at
the training quarters of the pugilist
at Coney Island. Mizner says he" can
not get used to the Eastern climate.
Asked if there was any prospect of
a reconciliation between him and his
wife, the former Mrs. Yerkes, Mizner
said: "There's nothing doing in that
direction, so far as I know."
After several separations and re
concil'iations, closely following their
marriage, Mis. Mizner went to Chi
cago about two months ago. Mizner
followed her a few dajs later, but a
new difference arose between them,
and Mizner temporarily dropped from

Government of the United States.

submarine boat can infict, was made
upn the floor of the House this after
noon. The Navy Department bas not
been publishing the existence of such
an invention, but an official of the
department was so indiscreet as to
mention it to a Congressman, f
The invention has not been embod
ied in a full-sized boat, but trials have
been had of model representing in
miniature the submarine wonder, and
it has been held in the tank at the
navy yard in this city, and is reported
to have been satisfactory.
A small fleet of submarines capable
of making twenty-two knots an hour
could destroy the most powerful navy
an' nation could assemble. The sub
marine torpedo boats now available
for use in our navy can make, one
type five, and the other seven and a
half knots an hour, but with sub
marines of sufficient speed to over
hrul warships, the efficiency of this
type of vessel will be greatly increas
ed. The present submarines might
prove effective in case an enemy was
anchored or proceeding at slow speed,
but would be useless in case an ene

New York, May 16. -Edward H.
Harriman replevined to-day this
forty-horse-power Mercedes automo
bile, valued at $40,000, from the shop
of L. Burghardt and F. Szanthoffer,
where' it was sent for repairs in Jan
uary last, Deputy Sheriff O'Neill ex
ecuted the writ of replevin and took
the automobile to another garage for
keeping. The bill for repairs was
$1797, which Harriman deemed ex
cessive and he declined to pay it. lie
said that he was willing to pay a rea
sonable bill, but the concern refused
to accept less than the sum demand
ed or deliver the automobile until the
bill was paid. Harriman gave a bond
of $20,000 to indemnity the Sheriff.
Taft Urges Federal Cable.
Washington, May 16. Secretary
Taft to-day urged before the House
Committee on Interstate and Foreign
Commerce the rrilitary necessity of a
Government cable to Guantanamo,
Cuba, Porto Rico and the Isthmus of
"We are proceeding upon the the

"With the conditions there as they
are and the United States under Hip

it makes communication a necessity."
The total cost of a cable to touch
at Cuba, Porto Rico and Panama,
he said, was estimated ut $1,300,000.
It could be laid by converting the

A large congregation listened with
deep interest at St. Andrew's Cathe
dral yesterday morning to the fourth
annual address of Bishop Restarick,
which was one of the opening exer
cises of the Convocation. Bishop
Restarick said, in part:
In these Islands, small and remote
as they are, there are problems
which are not only of the deepest in
terest, but which call out all that is
strongest in one who honestly tries
to do his part to solve them for God
by the uplifting of man to Him.
There are religious problems. Take
the growth of Mormonism in these
Islands. When I speak of Mormon
ism, I speak of that concerning which
I know something. I lived in Mormon-
families for some time when a
young man. I was told not long ago
by a Roman Catholic friend that 50
per cent of the Mormons in these Is
lands had been Roman Cthohcs. Two
Roman Catholic priests have told me
they believe this is not an incorrect
statement. I was astounded, be
cause Roman Catholics of any race
are usually most tenacious of their
religious system even if they do not
practice it in life. What is the rea
son of this falling away? Is it brought
about by appeals to what is highest
and best in men? One of my friends
gave me an answer. Heisaid I went to
a family and said to the man: "Why
don't you come to church?" The
answers was he had become a Mor
man and the reason given was that
this religion did not interfere with
his desires, and saved him going to a
doctor; that is, did not oppose Eahu
naism. The strong point of Moham
medanism is. that it appeals to the
sensual, and to the spirit to con
quest. What is appealed to by the
system of which we speak? A letter
in a native paper was read tome the
other day in the defense of polygamy
which was more than a column in
length. In the midst of these influ
ences tending to drag down and lead
ing to reversion to originel type, we
must maintain and present ideals of
the Christian family and of personal
purity and see that laws are enforc
Then, there is the problem of our
contact with the Oriental and other
races whose moral ideas are not like
our own; that is, not Cbristiau, and
there is the constant danger of the
lowering of our own ideals and stan
dards. People of the white race here
come from countries when Christian
ideas and customs saturate the social
life and where strong public opinion
is a safeguard against public moral
offences at least.
I have been told that one evidence
of the growth of moral ideas here is
the fact that things which were once
done openly have now to be done se'
cretly in order to save social stand
ing. So far that is a gain. But the
moral conditions existing here are
most puzzliug, especially to Anglo-
Saxons, and how to judge and what
to say or do it is difficult to deter
mine. Amld&t it all, knowing that im
purity leads to personal moral de
generacy, and physical, mental and
spirtual ruin to those who know bet
ter, the Christian should stand as a
stone wall against all that will tend
to lower his ideals or impair his mo
ral consciousness. Bulletin.

Otkland, April 16.- The plans for
a new tourist hotel for the heart ot
the residence section ot Oakland,
which were promulgated a year ago
and dropped at that time, have now
been revived through the agency of
C. H. King and two local capitalists,
and the prospect is fair for the erec
tion of a 1500,000 hostelry that will
be a credit to the city. The propos
ed site for the hotel is on vacant pro
perty bounded by Twelfth and Thr-
teenth streets and Oakland and
Fallon streets. The hotel would
overlook Lake Merritt, the proposed
city park and give a view of the rich
Piedmont district and the Berkeley

plan, staled to-day that be was go
