SHOOTING AT AN
Special Ayers Makes a Thief
Relinquish His Stolen
A BOY BURNED TO DEATH.
Thomas Crawford Is Chosen as
Clerk of Police Judge •
. "Woods' Court.
A little after 3 o'clock yesterday morn
ing three pistol shots rang out on the air
on Alice street, between Twelfth and
Tenth. Then there was a blowing of
police-whistles, and soon a crowd of ofiicers
had gathered to listen to the story, of the
man who did the shooting, Special Officer
A. T. Ayers.
Officer Ayers said that he was patrolling
his beat near Twelfth and Alice streets
when he saw, opposite himself, a figure
skulking along in the shadow of the house
of G. A. Faulkner, from which it was ap
parent the person had just emerged, as a
dim light was seen to be burning in the
house. Avers was on the opposite side of
the street, and in the darkness 'could not
tell whether the figure was that of a man
or a woman. As it drew nearer the officer
thought he noticed a bundle being carried
by the figure, and he called out for the
person to stop.
The figure only glided along a little
quicker. Again the officer called halt, stat
ing that he was an officer, but the man.
Special Officer Ayera.
[From a photograph.]
for such Aver? now saw it was, only broke
into a run. Ayers started in pursuit &nd
. tired his pistol in the air.
Then the fleeing man took wings indeed.
The officer fired another shot in the air,
and by this time the man was running
like wild, and the contents of his bundle
began dropping out The pursuing officer
stumbled over some of the dropping booty,
and .by the ring he detected that it was
platedware. Then he was certain he was
on the track of a burglar, and when near
the corner of Tenth and Alice he shot for
the third time, aiming straight at his man.
Ayers thought he had him sure, but
when he got up to where the man fell there
was nothing in sight except the remnants
of the bundle of silverware. The thief had
disappeared in the night.
By this time a number of officials were
on the ground, and they gathered up the
bundle, which was a portiere wrapped about
a lot of silverware, and started back toward
the Faulkner residence. On the road they
gathered up a number of pieces of silver
ware, and it was noticed that one piece of
plate found in the bundle bad been dented,
as though it had caught the bullet.
At the Faulkner residence both the front
and back doors were found open, and
things in the dining-room were badly
upset. A piece of canals was still burning
on the table, and there was a half-eaten
j orange near by. The thieves, for it is
bought there was more than one, had torn
down a portiere and packed into it every
thing of a portable character that they
Then one started up Alice and the other
down that street, the latter being the one
who was chased.
The Faulkners still miss a large amount
of their silverware, which was received by
* them as wedding presents. The police
think the man who ran up the street also
had a pretty good load. *.*';
Mr. and Mrs. Faulkner were at home,
but asleep in a room across the hall from
Burned to Death.
A two-story frame house on the San
Leandro road, near the i'littsville Hotel,
owned by Haggerty brothers and occupied
iby them as a grocery-store and saloon, was
destroyed by fire at an early hour Monday
The upper story of the building was oc
cupied as a dwelling-house by A. M. Hall,
who, with his mother, wife and two chil
dren, bad a battle with the flames that
they will never forget, and little Bennie
Hail, 9 years old, was fatally burned.
"It was between 2 and 3 o'clock? in the
morning," said Mr. Hall, "when I was
. awakened by the cry of fire -to find my
sleeping-room filled with smoke. I rushed
to my mother's room, and taking her in
my arms carried her to the stairway
and started her down. J returned for my

Investigating the Lake.

charges of foulness in the watershed, as
reported in the Call a few days ago.

Capitalists Keeping Their Oold.
The Oakland terminal committee, having
in hand the raising of money to induce the
# Ban Joaquin Valley road to come to Oak
' land, is somewhat discouraged over the
slow way collections are coming in. The
truth is that the fund is making little prog
ress, and the local papers have taken up
the cudgel to awaken the men of money.
One local journal says:. "There are selfish
and tight-fisted persons in every com
munity and Oakland has her full share of
them." Many of these regard it as a cer
tainty that the new road will come to Oak
land and so they refuse to subscribe. They
calculate on deriving all the benefit with
out putting out any money. They expect
to prosper at the expense of their more
liberal neighbors." -'^7

pose of preventing said stock from coming
to the hands of the assignee and to defeat

The congregation of the Park-street
Methodist Church is aroused over a bill
introduced in the Assembly which they
claim will seriously affect the liquor traffic.
Rev. Dr. Bovard has requested every mem
ber of his congregation to write to Senator
Beard and Assemblyman Waymire, declar
ing their strongest protest against the pas
sage of bill 246. Rev. Dr. Bovard's objection
is that section 27 provides that no arbitrary
or unequal license tax shall be levied upon
any business. He looks upon this section
as a big loophole. Section 33 is also ob
jected to,, which provides that the Super
visors shall not have the power to with
hold license from any business hitherto
authorized by law since 1839. There is a
strong feeling against the proposed bill.

writers, and two assistants are making a
thorough inspection and will submit a re

fidence in Mr. Low and his report will be
awaited with interest. The incandescent
electric lights are being rapidly intro
duced. However, there are a number of
the merchants who object to paying the
cost of wiring their stores and have a
petition before the board asking that the

is little likelihood of it being received

Residents of the Daly Scenic Tract are
puzzled over a mysterious occurrence on
Saturday night last. The concomitant
parts of the mystery are a woman's
agonized shriek, a man's yell of terror, two
pistol shots and a couple of people lifting
something, evidently a human body, from
the ground and carrying it away in the
direction of an adjacent creek.
The occurrence as related by James
Fishelbank, J. Wallin and a student named
Pierce is to the effect that on the night in
question they heard a woman's voice
scream, "For God's sake, don't shoot."
Then a shot was fired. Almost simulta
neously a masculine voice cried out in
Then another shot rang out. Hastily
approaching the scene Pierce saw two dark
forms lift a body from the ground and
carry it away. * " " • «>
The student feared to approach closer,
and hastened to town, where he informed
Deputy Constable Parker. The officer
hastened to the place and made a thorough
search, but without result. •
It is believed the shooting was done by
some angry husband, who was assisted by
bis wife in carrying away the victim. Yes
terday Parker and a posse of citizens
searched the creek and ravines, but found
nothing save marks of a conflict on the
spot where the affair took place. The
ground is furrowed and bears the impress
of some heavy body.

It Will Affect All Through Trains via
The Southern Pacific will put in force
some time this week a new time schedule
for all trains for the north and east which
go via Sacramento.
The disabling of the large ferry-boat
Solano at Benieia forces all trains for Sac

route is sixty-miles longer than the other,
and to avoid having all trains from one to
two hours late it has been decided to make
the hour of departure from San Francisco
approximately an hour and a half earlier
than formerly and the hour of arrival here
correspondingly later. No change will,
however, be made in the case of the At

Work of the Manufactur
At the eighteenth annual meeting of the
Board of Trade held yesterday afternoon
in their new rooms on the fourth floor of

President Watkins delivered his annual
report in which he reviewed the work done
by the directors during the year, and al

the Merchants' Association is doing in the
matter of cleaning the streets. Among
other things Mr. Watkins said:

topic which of late is pressing to the front and
receiving considerable attention. I refer to
the encouragement of home manufactory.
California is the second wool-producing State
of the Union. It has immediately around it
great wool-producing States, and "it is almost
next door to Australia, whence all mix
ing wools come, yet our product of woolen
goods is insignificant. There is no foundation
for the assertion that this State cannot com

have an ample market tor their products at re

A convention of manufacturers will shortly
assemble in this city and the subject will be
prominently brought before the public. I
trust the members of this association will take
an active interest in promoting and assisting
the meritorious objects which this convention
will be called upon to consider.
Tin* prospects of business throughout the
country, although they have been clouded by
a variety of causes during the past two years,

more definite light. Ihe retarding influences
are likely to be modified so as to render them
less obstructive to the operations of the agen
cies at work to produce a healthy condition in
the numerous arteries of trade ami commerce.
The commendable public spirit and enterprise
which our capitalists and citizens are now
evincing in various ways is deserving of special
appreciation and praise. If the public energy

Mr. Le Count stated that the association
of merchants who are asking for their

The Question Will Soon Be
Settled by the U. S.
The Continental Insurance
Company Is Fighting the -
The case of the Continental Insurance
Company of New York against the com
bined insurance companies for a perpetual
restraining order created a great deal of
stir in the United States Circuit Court
yesterday morning. Henry Evans, vice
president, and W. S. Duval, general mana
ger of the Pacific Coast department of the
Continental, were in attendance in com
pany with their attorney, S. M. Shortridge,
and nearly all the companies in the com
bine had representatives there to watch
the progress of the question at issue. Many
of them also have their leading men out
here from the East to watch the struggle
and a great legal battle is anticipated.
The question at issue is one fraught with
great interest to every person in the Golden
West who has a piece of property to insure.
In every Legislature that has been in
session during the past twenty years this
matter has cropped up. The combined
insurance companies made their own rates
and any company that refused to join
them was frozen out of business. Attempts
were made to regulate the matter by legis
lation, but it was all in vain, as general
lobbies in the . interests of the combine
frustrated every effort.
What this twenty years of legislation has
failed to do the . Continental Insurance
Company expects 'to succeed in doing.
With the aid of a court of equity it expects
to break up the combine by means of a per
petual injunction, and in this manner free
the people of California/ Oregon, Washing
ton, Idaho, Utah, Arizona and New Mex
ico s from the rule of a combination that
persists in fixing an arbitrary rate for in
surance and reinsurance.
The complaint, in the suit was filed on Feb
ruary 23 last and United States Circuit Judge
McKenna granted a temporary restraining
order the same day. The arguments were
set for yesterday at 11 o'clock' and at that
hour nearly all thejjprominent insurance
men in town were present. When the case
was called S. M. Shortridge asked for
short delay, i He pointed out. to the court
the vast territory that had to be covered
and the difficulties encountered in prepar
ing in advance affidavits that a witness
could truthfully certify to.
"it would be different if the matter was
a local one," continued • he. "Then the
case would be a comparatively simple one,
but in this instance hundreds of insurance
agents are being intimidated and it will
take time to get their testimony."
"The companies who are the defendants
in this suit are being damaged in their
business and the argument should pro
ceed," said Attorney Coogan. "No bond
has been given in the case, and the injunc
tion seems to me a little extraordinary.'
"Will the gentleman please take "note
that his clients are restrained from doing
an unlawful and wrongful thing?" re
torted Attorney Shortridge. "Our rights
are the ones that are being invaded, and
we should be doing the protesting and not
you. If your clients are doing a legitimate
business let them go ahead, but we are act
ing in good faith and we desire to Jay all
the available facts in the case before the
court.'' ■ ■ *
Judge McKenna cut the discussion short
by postponing the hearing of the argu
ment until this morning.
A somewhat similar fight to the one in
progress here is going on in lowa and
Texas. In the former a verdict was given
against the combine for ruining an agent's
business. In Seattle the Board of Under
writers has passed resolutions strongly
condemning the coercive policy of the
combine. While these various interests
are all enlisted in the fight the principal
battle-ground will be San Francisco, and
the legal conflict will be a most interesting
one. - \

A NEW HAZING FRATERNITY
It Has Been Started at Berke
- ley University by the
Wild Flutter and Speculation
Among the Menaced
A hazin tc fraternity in the University of
California made its existence publicly
known yesterday morning.
Rumor has had it for some time that
certain men in college had obtained a
charter from the Theta Nu Epsilon hazing
fraternity, so renowned 7in Eastern uni
versities, but nothing certain was known
until yesterday morning, when their bul
letin-board appeared in the corridor of
North Hall. ■.-•.-'•■
A chapter of the same "frat" spent a
brief lifetime in the university about twelve
years ago, but it was so completely wiped
out by the faculty that no one has thought
until now of even mentioning hazing.
Now that the deeds of the old chapter
have blown over and the university is
under a new regime the fun-loving college
boys have dared to revive the practice of
leading the freshmen a lively pace.
The "barb.-," as they call themselves,
have announced that their first initiation
of seventeen now members will take place
on the cinder-path next Friday night at
10:05. The list of names appears oil their
bulletin board, and a severe penalty will
be inflicted on those who fail to appear for
the initial ceremonies.
Small crowds of students could be seen
at almost any time of day, scattered over
the campus and in the corridors of North
Hall, discussing the situation and the pos
sible outcome of the new-born sophomore
brotherhood. Thb freshmen are most con
cerned, for upon them, if upon any one,
will fall the lash of the revengeful "barb."
Some think that the faculty will take the
matter in hand and prohibit any further
measures being made to permanently or
ganize. A stringent law was once passed
by them making it a grave offense, pun
ishable by expulsion, to have anything to
do with hazing. Some have taken the
matter seriously and seem to think that
the old-time riding on the rail and gant
let runs will be again carried on. Others
are less agitated over it and take the mat
ter as a "josh" or scheme to scare the in
experienced freshmen. When the captain
of the track athletic team saw that the in
itiation of the new men was to take place
on the cinder track he, in all earnestness,
put up a notice that no initiation would be
allowed on the track while he has any
thing to do with it, saying that "the track
is for athletics and not for initiation pur
poses." * X: "7.'* - "Ij:.
That there is a hazing fraternity in
Berkeley and that an initiation will soon
take place is beyond all doubt, but
whether they will ever put any of their
fellow students through the mill remains
to be seen. , -.._•;

MISS IDA- WELLS
AND HER WOES.
She Was Requested to With
draw by the Methodist
; Ministers. %
RESOLUTIONS WERE ADOPTED
The Colored Lady Found Favor
With the Congrega
Miss Ida B. Wells, the colored lady ad
vocate of the negro race, was not indorsed
by the Methodist ministers at their meet
ing yesterday morning. In fact she was
politely but firmly requested to leave the
room in the middle of the session without
being given an opportunity to speak. She
complied with the request, but said after
ward: "It was the most unfair thing I
have heard of in many a day. Statements
were made in the meeting to which I was
not allowed to reply. I only, wanted a fair
hearing." „. " ; -
Miss Wells had attended the meeting
because she had heard that a committee
had been appointed to' report that day
upon the advisability of passing resolutions
respecting the lynchings in the South.
Proceedings were opened yesterday by
W. S. Matthews, editor of the Advocate,
who said that he considered capital punish
ment ought to be dealt out to negroes who
committed assaults upon helpless women
legal capital punishment, not capital pun
ishment by lynching. Mr. Matthews
added that he had approved of Miss Wells
till he had come across certain passages in
her book reflecting upon the ministry.
He added that the ministers should not
indorse Miss Wells till they know where
she hailed from and by whom she herself
Miss Wells, who was present, requested
to know to what passage in her book the
reverend gentleman took exception, but
her question was ruled out of order. A
hot discussion took place respecting Rev.
W. S. Matthews' idea of capital punish
ment and the question was finally laid over
for future discussion.
Bishop Goodsell. who has lived for four
years in New Orleans and Fort Worth,
Tex., then said that while he did not con
done lynchings there was another side to
the question besides that of Miss Wells.
So fierce were the negroes when diunk that
it was no uncommon thing for white men
to be afraid to leave their families for fear
of their brutalities. The Bishop further
intimated that he. could a tale unfold., in
fact, two or three tales, bristling with hor
rible and salacious facts. On hearing this
Miss Simms, president of the committee
on deaconesses, as well as the deaconesses
and other ladies present, withdrew. Miss
Wells calmly .stated that she wished her
side to be heard also, as every story the
Bishop might tell she could match by two
stories of outrages perpetrated upon her
own people by drunken whites, or by white
people eager to enjoy a lynching picnic. It
was not judged proper, however, that her
ears should hear* the Bishop's stories and
she was requested to withdraw, which she
did somewhat reluctantly, murmuring that
there were two sides to every question and
she was the only one there who could say
a word for • her race. The end of the
Bishop's remarks were heard in strictly
executive session, representatives of the
press being excluded.
• The meeting concluded with the report
of the committee on lynchings. The orig
inal resolutions prepared by this* commit
tee were four in number, one being an in
dorsement of Miss Wells. As it was found
that she was not a Methodist and her cre
dentials were not known it was decided
not to indorse her, so the fourth resolution
was stricken out. The committee that had
prepared the resolutions consisted of Rev.
XV. W. Case, Rev. W. R. Goodwin, Rev. S.
T. Carroll and Rev. S. D. Simons. In the
course of a long preamble all lynch law,
whether in the North or the South, was
condemned, and tlie resolutions as amend
ed read as follows:
Resolved, first, That we, the Methodist
Preachers' Association in San Francisco,
utterly condemn all lynch law, whether in
North or South, and call for swift and sufficient
punishment for all who engage in these laws
and heathenish acts.
Resolved, second, That while we condemn
lynching, we also insist that every act that
would incite these lawless murders "should lie
punished promptly and to the full extent of
the law, and that we are in sympathy neither
with crimes that provoke lynching nor with
those who take the law in their own hands.
Resolved, third. That we call upon Congress
and the state Legislatures and upon all honor
able citizens everywhere to put a stop, both by
law and public opinion properly expressed, to
these shocking and unchristian barbarities.
, The above resolutions were passed unani
mously. , * v
At the Congregational Monday Club
Miss Ida B. Wells made a speech which
was listened to with interest by those pres
ent at the meeting. She stated that in that
same hall a few hours previously her cre
dentials had been questioned, but 6tated
that she was indorsed by the colored press
and by 8,000,000 of the colored people.
"My credentials consist of the support of
the entire colored race," she said.
Miss Wells further gave statistics show
ing that out of 1000 negroes— men, women
and children— who bad been lynched dur
ing the last two years, only 209 were for
the crime most frequently alleged as the
cause of lynchings. The others were for
alleged wife-beating, stealing, murder, etc.
At the conclusion of her speech, Dr.
Brown spoke in the highest terms of Miss
Wells' addresses, both the one delivered in
the First Congregational church last Sun
day and her address yesterday. He then
introduced a set of resolutions tending to
discountenance lynching. An amicable
discussion followed as to whether the
words, "the people of Ihe South" in the
resolutions should not be made to read,
"the people of both North and South," as
lynchings have been practiced out of tho
Southern States. The resolutions were
finally adopted unanimously as follows:
Resolved, That the members of the Congrega
tional Club of San Francisco, In the interests
of humanity and our Christian faith, protest
against this barbarous infraction of personal
rights, and request* our representatives to
favor legislation to repress these crimes, and
to afford justice to the long-oppressed colored
people in accordance with law.
Jiesolvcd, That in view of these lawless acts
of unpunished murders it is time that there
should be a general protest on the part of
Christians in our land against these crimes,
and an earnest appeal on behalf of humanity
and justice. -
Resolved, That as these murders and outrages
are In our own country," we cannot overlook
them, nor be silent, regarding them, and we
call upon the great body of law-abiding people
in the South, by whose silence and disregard
these evils exist, not to cover up these atroci
ties, but to protest with us against this inhu
manity and injustice, not only as contrary to
law, but also as coutrary to Christianity, a
disgrace to civilization and mankind.
A paper by Dr. B. G. Northrop was read,
on "Strikes and. the Ownership of Homes,"
and a resolution was unanimously passed
calling. on the Congregational ministers of
San Francisco to raise collections in their

The Baptist ministers listened to a paper
by Rev, Mr. Whittaker on ," The Relation
of Pulpit and Church to Politics," the
speaker urging that while clergymen
should uphold what is morally right and
condemn all that is morally wrong in pub
lic matters, they should - not dabble in
party politics. A touching farewell ad
dress was made by Rev. J. Q. A. Henry, in
the course of which he alluded .to his
increasing deafness and failing health as
the cause of his retirement from San Fran
cisco. ' . ,'. - . ■_. --":]'■

An interesting address on China was de
livered before the Presbyterian Ministerial
Union by Dr. Farnh'am of Shanghai,
China. While speaking highly of the in
dustry and law-abiding spirit of the lower
classes in China, he scathingly rebuked the
Government and the mandarins, declaring
the Government to be nothing but a legally
organized system of robbery and oppres
sion. "The Chinese," he said, "show their
wisdom in not fighting for such rulers,

During Lent the usual meetings of the

exercises presided over by Bishop Nichols.
"THE SUNNING MADMAN."
His Action Discussed at IfJinruanurl
Church by Rev. J. G. Gibson.
Rev. J. George Gibson preached a stir
ring sermon to a large congregation at
Emmanuel Baptist Church Sunday even
ing. After singing a barytone solo, "'Tis
Only a Little Way," Dr. Gibson took as his
text, "He saw Jesus far off, he ran and
worshiped him," Mark v:6. The preacher
discussed the man's position. "You are
far off from God," he said, "but you do not
want to be. You are not a big sinner, but
your heart condemns you. You do not
doubt God's existence. Perhaps your feel-,
ing of far-offness comes from knowing God
has been good to you and that you have
not been faithful to him. Then you are
not so young as you were. You used to
pray, but you are too far off for that now.
Then, perhaps there are evil things in
your life that make you ashamed of your
self. ; ■ . .. .
"Secondly, there were advantages in this
man's position. In all lives there is a
gleam of hope. Even Dante could make
very good poetry out of such a subject as
hell. This man" saw Christ. To see was
better than not to see. You believe there
is such a person. ' This is better than deny
ing his personality. To know he lived "is
better than not to know. Then, though
far oft, he had the impression Jesus could
help him. This is better than thinking of
Christ as an enemy. You believe he loved
men. This is better than sneering at reli
gion, seeing no God in nature and no Son
of God in history.
"Thirdly, this man changed his posi
tion. He ran to Christ. What was his
motive? Murder, perhaps. His motive
has little to do with his finding Christ.
Many a man has made a rush to destroy
Christ and in that rush become Christ's
friend. We can never tell how things are
going to turn out when God has anything
to do with them. Then he worshiped
Christ. The worship could not be so in
telligent as that of the apostles, but Christ
accepted it. He saw the madman coming
and was ready to receive him. Sometimes
kindness tames the mad. Jesus accepts
when we give the best we have and do the
best we can. Oh, wasted life ! Oh, broken
heart! Oh, my God, can it be true or am I
dreaming? The Father's arms are around
me, and there is the happy essence of a
thousand kisses in that one imprinted on
the man's rough cheek."
At the close of the sermon the rite of
Christum baptism was again administered.
Wherever good health abounds good
food predominates. Perfect food is made
with Dr. Price's Baking Powder.
Mr. Hawthorne Was Satisfied.
Nathaniel Hawthorne was a kind-hearted
man as well as a great novelist. While he
was consul at Liverpool a young Yankee
walked into his office. The boy had left
home to seek his fortune, but evidently
had not found it yet, although he had
crossed the sea in search. Homesick,
friendless, nearly penniless, he wanted a
passage home. 'The clerk said that Mr.
Hawthorne could not be seen and inti
mated that the boy was not an American,
but was trying to steal a passage.
The boy stuck to his point, and the clerk
at last went to the little Toom and said to
"Here's a boy who insists upon seeing
you. He says he's an American, but 1
know he isn't." ._.'*.*■■;. *
Hawthorne came out of .the room and
looked keenly at . the eager, ruddy face of
the boy. ... . "7 . .
"You want a passage to America?"
"Yes, sir." - .
"From what part of America?" .'- "
"United States, sir," > 7
"What State?" . ' * '
"New Hampshire, sir."
Hawthorne looked at him for a minute
before asking him the next question.
"Who sold the best apples in your
town?" *v\. .-. -.:,-'.
"^kimmilk Folsom, sir," said the boy,
with glistening eyes, as the old familiar
byword brought up the dear old scenes of
-"lt's all right, sir," said Hawthorne to
the clerk, "give him a passage."—Detroit
