Assessor Dalton Creates a Stir
Among the Corpora
THEY MUST PAY MORE TAXES :
The Young Son of a San Francisco
Policeman Burned to
Assessor Dalton's office was thronged
• with property-owners and the representa
•. tive- of corporations yesterday, all striving
to ascertain why the assessment values of
• their holdings had been raised and trying j
to convince Mr. Dalton that previous
officials had placed the figures about right.
• The Assessor listened to their stories and
plaints with unvarying courtesy, but in
every instance showed he was familiar
with the properties under discussion and
that his figures had been based on reliable
information or actual knowledge rather
"The arguments of some of these people
amuse me," said the Assessor when 5
o'clock brought his day's work to an end.
. "They seem to think that I am merely
•raising assessments to carry out the
pledges I made before election and that
my figures are arbitrary.
"I went about the business of ascertain- 1
ing what the value of Oakland properties
. are in a systematic way- and I believe
that my figures are nearly right. If I
'wanted to know the value of a piece of land
I called on a real estate man and asked his
..opinion. Such men ought to know what
■* Oakland real estate is worth. When the
• : question of the value of improvements
: came up I asked contractors and builders
to estimate for me. Their opinions ought
to bear weight. In no instance have I
raised a valuation without gaining the
opinion of experts, and should any "ques
tion of my assessments be raised I think I
will be able to show that they are just and
"One of the most amusing incidents that
. has happened to-day was the visit of Head
Bookkeeper Watkinson of the Contra
Costa Water Company, who called in to
leave a statement of the property of the
company. On looking at the document I
at once saw that the corporation had not
. placed a valuation on a single bit of prop
erty belonging to it, merely giving a list of
" 'Here.' said I, 'this is not the state
ment required by law. You must tell me
what you value this plant at and how
much this real estate is worth to you.'
"He assured me that the company was
not able to estimate values and that it
would much rather have me do it for them.
I asked him how I was going to make an
estimate if the company could not, but he
.insisted that the corporation was not a
good authority on the subject and I let the
matter drop there.
"I didn't tell him that I had already
• secured an estimate of the belongings of
the company to the last dollar, and have
the figures all ready for use when they are
;• needed. As a matter of fact I have not
■ made these figures public yet, but you can
Say the assessed value of their property
will be more like $1,250,000 or perhaps
$1,500,000 than the $720,000 on which they
Said taxes last year. The trouble with the
ontra Costa Water Company is that if
they make a sworn statement of the value
- of their property, such as I would accept, it
will be used by "the City Council as a basis
for fixing water rates, and the company
might lose more in revenues through that
source than the extra taxes I might make ,
them pay would amount to. i
"Other corporations have tried to con
vince me that their assessments are too
high, but I cannot see it in that way, and I
shall keep my figures as I have placed
them. I hear some talk of a contest coming
from roundabout sources, but I think that
those who take any such action will find
their hands full when I present my evi
dence to the Board of Equalization.
"Now as to the Southern Pacific Railroad
assessment, I am not prepared to say just
how much I will raise it, but you may be
assured that the increase will be a good,
healthy one. and on properties on which
the company is not figuring just at pres
ent. Despite the fact that much of the
company s property is not in sight, so to
speak, my aids have found enough already
to raise the company's assessment by
$.500,000 at least, and the figures may be
twice that before we get through.
"You will notice in some instances that
the improvements on real estate have been
valued at less than by previous Assessors.
Buildings do not increase in value with
• age, while real estate, as a general rule,
. Some of the most important raises de
cided for by Mr. Dalton were in the busi
. ness portion of the city, where large build
ings were brought up to the values placed
upon them by real estate men. Among
them were the following:
Henry Severing, corner of Eleventh and
"Washington streets, increased from $10,150
John Nicoll, Ninth and Washington
streets, increased from $59,000 to $86,750.
Frederick Delger, Thirteenth street and
Broadway, increased from $133,800 to
$194,800. •" The same owner of block be
tween Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets
on Broadway was increased from $187,000
to $244,250, and a property on Fourteenth
street, between Broadway and Washington
street, from $32,000 to $52,500.
' The property of the Oakland Bank of
Savings was increased from $38,000 to
W. G. Henshaw, banker, corner of
Twelfth and Washington streets, was in
creased from $41,850 to $67,000.
The Bacon Land Company property on
the east side of Washington street, be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth streets, was
increased from $149,750 to $195,000.
Mrs. M. A. Blake, southeast corner of
Twelfth and Washington streets, increased
from $59,750 to $92,300.
Crellin Hotel, Tenth and Washington
Streets, from $41,250 to $65,250.
The - assessed value of dozens of other
properties was increased, though not in so
marked a degree, and in almost every in
stance the value of improvements was
slightly decreased. The aggregate raise in
assessments so far will amount to nearly
$2,000,000. '.;• '.-j; -y-:^y. : 'C'yJ.:
Among the corporations .yet to be as
sessed is the Oakland, San Leandro and
Haywards Electric Company, which has
heretofore paid taxes on $137,000.
Mr. Dalton says that while be was a
member of the City Council the attorney
for the company stated that the road cost
$750,000 to build. He will give the com
pany a substantial raise, though he has not
as yet investigated the matter thoroughly
enough to say how much it will be.
Tho Cottell Damage Case.
The case of Frank Cottell, the lad who
was injured on April 6', 1893, when the
railroad ticket-office at the foot of Broad
way was hauled to the corporation-yard,
was resumed in the Superior Court yester
The boy was placed on the stand and tes
tified thai he was in the crowd that was
watching the procession pass along the
street, when he was struck down by a beam,
to.which was attached a bell, which had
fallen from the roof of the , structure. He
stated that ever since the accident his sight
had been affected and that he was fre
quently subject to pains in the head and
in other parts of his body, which had been
wounded by the falling beam.
The suit was brought on the ground that
the city, through its officials, I violated the
ordinance which requires a permit from
the Board of Public Works before buildings
can be removed.
The city on the other hand claims that
the. boy was violating an ordinance that
prohibits boys from being on the street
•iter 8 o'clock by remaining on Broadway
while the house was being moved, and that
for that reason the city is not liable for the
Burned to Death.
The Coroner was notified this morning
that Frank L. Moran, 11 years of age, had
died at 1726 Ninth avenue, East Oakland,
from burns received on Saturday night
The lad, who was the son of a San Fran
cisco policeman, was visiting a son of E. H.
Lishman, who lives at the number men
tioned. The boys in some manner got
their clothes soiled, and Mrs. Lishman
cleaned their garments with gasoline.
Later the youngsters concluded to have
a bonfire, and pouring some of the inflam
mable stuff on the ground in the backyard,
set tire to it. Frightened at the great blaze
which resulted, they tried to stamp it out.
The Moran boy's clothes were still damp
in spots from the cleaning, and the fire
communicated to the unevaporated gaso
line. His trousers began to burn, and
though the family wrapped him in blan
kets and put out the blaze, he was too
badly burned to survive. The remains
were removed to the home of his father,

A B*G SURPRISE TO AIL.
The Members Must Not Affiliate
With Churches or Secret
Some weeks ago General Booth, who con
ceived the idea of the Salvation Army,
spent several days in San Francisco, and
during that time he delivered a series of
lectures on what the army had done and
what they proposed to do.
In a lecture delivered at Metropolitan
Hall, General Booth among other things
said: "The Salvation Army is in no sense
a church, nor will it ever be merged into a
denominational body so long as I have
anything to do with it. The army has its
mission to perform and can do it without
conflicting with the church."
General Booth has either turned front or
his lieutenants, Ensign Wood of the Oak
land Training School and Captain McFee
of the local social wing, are advocating re
forms and promulgating rules not laid
down in the order-book. Ensign Wood is
credited with saying that it has always
been a rule of the army that a soldier could
not join a secret society and retain his
membership with a church, though the (
rule until recently had never been en
General Booth has now issued a new
order, says Ensign Wood, calling upon all
the officers to rigidly enforce the law.
Captain McFee says that he has never
heard of such a rule, neither has General
Booth instructed him to draw the line on
soldiers retaining their membership with
churches on joining secret orders. What
Captain McFee says about the matter,
however, is equally as interesting as
Ensign Wood's talk about the General's
sweeping order. Captain McFee said
I think Ensign Wood has been misquoted, for
I know of no such rule in the order
book, neither has General Booth written me on
the subject. I want to say, however, that Ido
not think a man can serve two masters— that is
the church and Salvation Army. When a man
joins our ranks he pledges his word to devote
all of his time and money to us. We are a
church just as much as the Methodist, Baptist
or any other denomination. A man cannot be
long to a Methodist and Baptist, church at the
same time, can he? Then 1 claim that a soldier
cannot combine church with his army obliga
tions. When a man comes to us he signs a
declaration, a portion of which reads as fol
"Believing solemnly that the Salvation Army
has been created by God, and is sustained and
directed by him, I do hereby declare my full
determination by God's help to be a true sol
dier of the army till I die. Ido hereby declare
that I will spend all the time, strength, money
and influence I can in supporting and carrying
on this war."
Now, as regards secret societies I am opposed
to them, because I claim that a man cannot be
a Christian hampered by secret obligations.
Something in the oath he takes is bound to
conflict with his Salvation Army duties, and
therefore he is compelled to do violence to his
conscience for the benefit of one of these insti
tutions. I was a Mason once, but I found that
I could not be a Salvationist and keep that up
too, so I let good fellowship go.
You may put me down as saying that secret
societies and the church on one side and the
Salvation Army on the other don't go. Of course
there are thousands of Christian people in
churches and secret societies, and I don't want
to be misunderstood on that point, but the Sal
vation Army is a church, starting out practi
cally on the lines followed by the Methodists
;' Mrs. McFee, the wife of the captain, was
not so sure about the rule in the order
book relating to churches and secret orders.
She thought that such a rule existed, but
did not know just where to find it.
; Editor Millsaps of the War Cry was
equally at sea concerning the correctness
of the statement made by Ensign Wood of
Oakland, though he had a vague recollec
tion that a rule of some kind on that sub
ject was to be found in General Booth's
book of instructions. He would not be
surprised at anything, he said, for the
army had spread itself throughout the
civilized world, and had gained a footing
which nothing could now shake. ,
Of course, all this talk about the churches
and secret societies has created more or
less comment among the different de
nominations, though until General Booth
announces that the course outlined by En
sign Wood is to be the future policy of the
Salvation Army, criticism, either for or
against the plan, will hardly be indulged in.
In a. general way Rev. Dr. Mackenzie
comes very near outlining the popular
feeline. In speaking of the matter yester
day he said : •
So far as I understand matters the churches
have been glad to eive of their members and
money for the work of the Salvation Army.
The army as such reached a class in our com
munities and helped them in a moral way
which could not be reached by the churches.
The army has now apparently drawn enough
of our members and money to feel and declare
their independence. This is their unques
tioned prerogative, for which none "will say
them nay. It is also human nature illustrated
in every such movement and was to be ex
They have discovered their field and now
seek to direct their forces more definitely.
They probably know what they are doing arid
we would not question their judgment or mo
tive. Personally, however, I think they will
make a mistake when they draw the line of
division between their work and that of the
church as sharply as is predicted. This is a
day of increasing convergence on the part of
those working for a common cause rather than
Dr. Mackenzie in conclusion admitted
that the church had certainly felt the
benefit of the army's experience and that
the members who worked for both brought
good into both.

A FRIEND OF EZETA.
General Castillos, One of Antonio's Offi
cers, Arrives From Salvador
on the Colon. -. • ■ ~
The Pacific Mail steamer Colon arrived
yesterday morning from Panama and way
ports with quite a number of passengers
and a big cargo of freight. Among the pas
sengers was General Filadello Castillos, one
of Antonio Ezeta's officers, and a warm
personal friend of the exiled Salvadoran.
When seen on the steamer General Cas
tillos declined to be interviewed and as
soon as the vessel was docked he left the
Mail wharf for the California Hotel to call
on Antonio. Despite the fact that Castil
los had been in the foremost Tank of
Ezeta's fighters, no attempt was made to
apprehend him after Gutierrez got in
power. This fact would seem to throw
doubt on the statements made by Antonio
regarding the persecution of his friends in
Salvador. Letters which the deposed gen
eral received from his native land stated
that Salvador was flowing with the blood
of his former adherents. There has never
been any confirmation of these stories, and
the officers on the Colon stated that every
thing was quiet in Salvador when the
steamer left La Libertad. Ezeta has al
ways maintained that he would return to
Salvador and remove Gutierrez from power,
and the arrival of Castillos may have some
bearing on his plot.

office he moved to Stockton, where he was
elected a County Judge.
Deceased located in Alameda twenty-five
years ago and was elected a member of the
twenty-third sesssion of the Legislature.
He was retained as counsel for Sarah
Althea Hill in her attempt to prove a con
tract marriage with the late Senator
Sharon, from which he derived consider
able prominence. His greatest coup in
that trial was the joke he played on Gen
eral Barnes, which cost the latter $25,000.
Barnes paid McLaughlin, a clerk in Tyler's
office, the above mentioned sum to abstract
the original of a contract between Tyler
and Gumpel from the Judge's desk. If
the contract had been genuine it would
have demolished Sarah Althea's case, as it
contained a clause showing that Gum pel
believed the marriage contract a forgery.
General Barnes obtained the money from
! Sharon and a "tip" was given the retainers
to be on hand, and here the bombshell
dropped into the enemy's camp exploded.
After General Barnes had detailed the
story Tyler arose, - perfectly unconcerned,
and declared the whole thing a clever trick
by which the general had been duped.
This, of course, exploded the sensation, but
it proved the boomerang that led to his

Tyler's death, was attributed to diabetes

for not having sent the warrant East be
fore by saying they desired to avoid the
expense that would have been incurred.
They were also daffy expecting to hear
that Huntington was on his way west.
"The warrant will be sent to "New York
and served there," said United States Dis
trict Attorney Foote yesterday when talk
ing about the case. "A certified copy of
the indictment will be made and sent back
along with the warrant. If Mr. Hunting
ton is there when they arrive service will
be made. He may give bonds for his ap
pearance here or else elect to fight the case
in New York. In the latter event that
would probably be the last that we would
hear of the matter. . Should he start for
California before the warrant reaches New
York Marshal Baldwin will serve the orig
inal on him here and then the matter will
come up in the regular way."
As the Southern Pacific officials state
positively that Huntington will not be
here for some time to come the chances
are that the famous breach of the inter
state commerce law case will be settled in
New York. ' %
An Open Meeting to Be' Held at the
Y. M. C. A. Hall To-Morroiv
There will be held in the auditorium of
the Young Men's Christian Association,
corner of Mason and Ellis streets, to-mor
row afternoon at 3 o'clock, an open meet
ing, preliminary to the Woman's Congress,
which is to convene in this city in May.
A number of interesting speakers have
been secured for this meeting. There will
also be some music. The - last open meet
ing, which was held in Oakland, was very
largely attended and was full of interest. "
The" programme of , the congress, which i
is now nearly completed, will be outlined,
and the names of many speakers who have
consented to address the congress will be
announced. An opportunity will also be
offered at this meeting for any one who
may desire to become members of the Con
gress Association. Already about 800 la
dies, from all over the Pacific Coast, are
enrolled as members.
The Congress Association has been made
a permanent institution, and every year
the meetings will be held, at which some
of the best exponents of education, eco
nomics, industry, reform, philanthropy
and religion will address the Congress.
Brings comfort and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. The many, who live bet-
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting the world's best products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas-
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect lax-
ative; effectually cleansing the system
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curing .constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession because it acts on the Kid-
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak-
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug-
gists in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is man-
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup |
Co. only, whose name is printed on every
