Timothy Collins, an old-timer, who
j opened the Noe Valley dairy in 1864,
j hanged himself in the basement of his

' so the desperate man tied his head close to
j a joist and then drawing his feet up under j
I him slowly strangled to death.
Collins had a comfortable home and kept \
; a couple of cows. It was his custom to get I
i up about 5 o'clock and milk tho animals. j
; He followed his usual routine, yesterday I
j an d after carrying the milk il to the house

■ before the body was discovered by his wife. j
Collins came to California in 1864 and in j
company wiih his brother John opened i
i the Noe" Valley dairy. At one time they j
| supplied the City and County Hospital,
' Almshouse, City Prison and County Jail
j with milk and did a very large general
J business besides. When the city limits
restricted their range they went out of
I business and cut their ranch up into build- j
j ing lots. The old man was well off and his
neighbors say it was not financial troubles !
j that caused him to take his life.
. The old man was very much worried by j
I the Castro-street cars, which be said pre- !
j vented him from sleeping. He also took it !
j very much to heart when his daughter j
! Mamie ran away with a gripman and got i
j married, and when bis son John was ar- I
; rested for an assault upon a girl in the
vicinity of Twin Peaks he was completely '•
prostrated. These things all preyed upon I
is mind and drove him to his death. I
John Collins, the deceased's brother, is I
unable to account for the rash act. He j
says the deceased was in comfortable cir- j
cumstances and had nothing to worry him.

EIOHTEE'S HOTEL KEYS.
They Were the Cause of His Detention
in Jail for Months.
A strange mistake on the part of the
police was discovered yesterday in Judge
Belcher's court, whereby a well-to-do
hotel man was freed from a humiliating
charge. It was all on account of a big
ring of keys. V'V^yV
It appears that Philip Richter is part
owner of the Calistoga Hotel of Calistoga
and has besides some unincumbered realty
on Folsom street m this city. About three
months ago he paid a visit to San Fran
cisco and by mishap brought with him a
lot of spare keys to guest chambers, nil
properly tagged. While here he stayed at
the Abloom House on Grant avenue and
some amateur detective noticed the keys
and jumped at the conclusion that he was

matter over to the police and Richter was
arrested by officers George 0. Brown and
J. A. McGrath, who, after inspecting the
keys, held them as conclusive evidence
that their prisoner was waiting an oppor
tunity to roD the hotel.
The true facts of the case came to light
yesterday and Judge Belcher immediately
instructed the jury to acquit, which was at
once done. o'-f'. "v.:;

Considerable excitement was created yes
terday in Judge Murphy's court as the
parties to the suit of O'Brien vs. O'Brien
were leaving the room. The o'3riens are
engaged in a divorce suit in which a mar
riage contract figures and over which there
is much bitterness. The woman in the
case, Mrs. O'Brien, has been supported to
some extent by a friend named Morris
Wise, who, it appears, is a married man.
Yesterday Morris Wise was in court and
was just accompanying Mrs. O'Brien from
the scene, her case having been continued
to Monday, when a little woman rushed
up to him and excitedly raining angry
words upon bis head smote him roundly

self deserted for another woman. She was
taken away by friends before the court

Douglas Tilden's Group, "The
Bear Hunters," to Be
The Row Between the Artist and
the Deaf and Dumb Asylum
Despite all the quarrels and squabbles
over Douglas Tilden's bronze group, "The
Bear Hunters," it hag been definitely de
cided by the action of James D. Phelan,
the president of the Art Association, that
the group shall be a part of the coming
spring exhibition, and it is expected that
it will be put in place to-day on tbe same
temporary pedestal that waited in vain a
week or two ago for the expected statuary.
The authorities of the institute state
that "there was a misunderstanding be
tween the Deaf and Dumb Asylum trus
trees and Mr. Tilden which has been, to
the great satisfaction of both, amicably ar
ranged. The State will be asked at the
next session of the Legislature to purchase
this group by the talent of young Califor
nia in order that it may be placed upon
the grounds of the asylum at Berkeley. It
would be singularly appropriate, as Tilden
is a native of the State, educated at a State
institution, and the purchase of his work
would be a stimulus to other young men
who find it difficult, after they have Dem
onstrated their talent and won fame, to
find any market for the creations of their
Warren Olney, who has had the matter
in charge for the trustees of the Deaf and
Dumb Asylum at Berkeley, received yes
terday from Mr. Tilden the following
Warren Olney Esq.— Sir: I've just had
a talk with J. D. Phelan, president of the Art
Association, and I beg to say that the arrange
ment made by the Art Association for the ex
hibition of the "bear fight" is a most agreeable
one. and that I hope a sale of $10,000 may
eventually be effected, whereby a settlement
of all my debts may be made to the satisfaction
of all the parties concerned, I on my part
waiving all question of right or wrong. Very
respectfully, Douglas Tilden.
When asked concerning the matter Mr.
Phelan said, yesterday:
The deal and dumb asylum authorities have
no feeling against Mr. Tilden, and whatever dif
ferences there may have been seem to have
arisen from a misunderstanding of certain
letters. The Art Association desired that the
group should be exhibited, and merely inter
vened for the sake of art. As a result the
statue will be exhibited and returned to the
asylum authorities if not sold. Of course we
hope that It will be sold. There is no doubt as
to the debt, nor is there in -he minds of the Art
Association any doubt as to the value of the
work, being considerably more than' the debt
over which the trouble has arisen. As matters
stand now the institute will exhibit the group,
and everybody is satisfied. I hope the matter
between Mr. Tilden and the authorities of the
asylum at Berkeley will be arranged without
any further discussion.
Among the artists there was general re
joicing over the amicable arrangement
and the knowledge that Tilden's group
would be exhibited. Arthur F. Mathews,
Jorgenson, Joullin, Assistant Secretary
Martin of the institute and all of the. men
prominent in art circles united in tbe gen
eral statement: "We are glad that Presi
dent Phelan, to whom much credit is due
in the matter, and the Art Association have,
in the interests of art, enabled the' public
to see in Tilden's work what a native Cali
fornian can do."
A POLICEMAN AERESTED.
Officer Hauck Charged With Failure to

Policeman Peter Hauck was arrested on

on his own recognizance and will appear
in court this morning.
Mrs. Kaiser is a neighbor of Mrs. Hauck,
and in her complaint says that the officer
has been drawing regular pay from the
city, but has allowed his wife and two chil
dren to suffer. She also lodged a complaint
with tbe Police Commissioners.
Hauck claims be has always been a good
husband, but that bis wife is addicted to

has always provided for the children and
in every way has been a good parent. The

CLEVER YOUNG SCULPTORS
What Douglas Tilden's Model
ing Classes Are Working
A JOLLY LOT OF STUDENTS.
How the Deaf-Mute Teacher Criti
cizes the Studies of His
The modeling class at the Hopkins Art
School is more thoroughly Bohemian and
combines jollity with art work to a greater
degree, possibly, than any class in the
school. Douglas Tilden, the deaf sculp
tor, who is instructor of the class, admits
that he sees no reason why students in his
class should not enjoy as much by-play as
is compatible with the work they are ex
pected to do. If they do their work they
may have their innocent amusement, and
as a matter of fact they both do their work
and have their fun.
There is one advantage which the model
ing class has over other classes, and that is
that their room is on the ground floor of
the school and must be passed through by
visitors to tbe various departments. While
working at their studies for the day the
class, therefore, has pleasant intermittant
As a modeling class Mr. Tilden's pupils
rank high both in numbers and work in
comparison with any modeling class in the
country. Sculpture, as a rule— or perhaps
modeling would be a better term— much
more apt to be taken up as a fad than as a
profession. In the other art classes a
larger proportion of the pupils will carry
out their work in after life. There are two
modeling classes— one a boys' class, and
the girls' class.
Among the members of the Tilden class
now working at tbe school there are some
promising students. L. F. Auzerais is

be calls "Throwing the Hammer." It is
more than likely that be will elaborate
this study on a larger scale when he has '
made further progress in bis preliminary j
studies. Miss Eva McCormick, who in an- j
other line of art work is recognized as j
possessing exceptional abilities, is devot- |

or rather wrote: "I think more than
thirty-five pupils have received instruction

fifteen, and although the number seems

Captain Andrew J. Dunlevy was born in
County Donegal, Ireland, on December 20,
1831. He came to this country when 11
years of age. For several years he resided in
the State of Massachusetts, and then joined
the United States sloop=of=war Dale, bound to
the east coast of Africa. He was three years
and ten months on the Dale. In 1858 he
came to California, and on May 1, 1868, was
appointed on the police force of this city. On
December 27, 1878, he was promoted to the
position of Sergeant, and on May 5, 1884, re=

One of the most pleasant features of the
| instruction in sculpture at the Hopkins
I Art School is the composition class, which
I every two weeks submits original sketches
I in clay of any subject previously named.
For instance, the theme last week was
I Circe, and next week it is to be the Golden
Ape. These subjects are written upon the
class bulletin board without attendant
hints or suggestions. - The purpose is to
obtain from the class original conceptions
of the given subjects, and in this way
teach the pupils to think as well as to work
j for themselves.
. "It is meant not only to stimulate the
invention and the imagination of the pu
pils, but also to instruct them in the art of
composing a figure, and where • there are
two or more figures to construct them in
grouping," said Mr. Tilden. ■ "The proof
of the wisdom of such a method is demon-
I strated by jj the results, which, with the
I present class, are excellent.' Mr. Raphael,
i in one instance, shows uncommon power,
and this is probably due to a great extent
to the fact that this; student has deter
mined to make sculpture the work of his
life. For him I can without hesitation
prophesy no inconsiderable success. .He
is | strong both in composition and tech
nique. "; I am sorry to say that there are
but few pupils who have signified delibe
rate Intention to devote themselves to
sculpture. The general idea seems to be
to model for a month or so and then stop.
So much work, it seems to me, is done
more for the sake of novelty than as a re

ture." Vy'-Vy Vy*::

for him to talk. He writes a casual criti

mento, San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland,
Los Angeles or San Diego, designated ter
minal points, does at present. It will be
the liberation of interior towns from a sys
tem which is popularly regarded as inequit
able and unjust.
The question was brought before the
commission by George J. Kindel, a Denver
manufacturer, and the Colorado Fuel and
Iron Company, who ask that the policy of
charging less' for transcontinental freight
from the Atlantic to the Pacific than on
two intermediate points between these ter
mini. Naturally enough the Denver peo
ple feel that they have a grievance. They
want the interstate commerce law regard
ing the long and the short haul as follows
Sec. 4. That it shall be unlawful for any
common carrier subject to the provisions of
this act to charge or receive any greater com
pensation in the aggregate for the transporta
tion of passengers or of like kind of property,
under substantially similar circumstances and
conditions, lor a shorter than for a longer dis
tance over the same line in the same direction,
the shorter being included within the longer
distance ; but this shall not be construed as
authorizing any common carrier within the
terms of this act to charge and receive as great
compensation for a shorter as for a longer dis
tance;, provided, however, that, upon applica
tion to the commission appointed under the
provisions of this act, such common carrier
may, in special cases, after investigation by the
commission, be authorized to charge less for
longer than for shorter distances for the trans
portation; of passengers or property; and the
commission may from time to time prescribe
the extent to which such designated common
carrier may be relieved from the operation of
this section of this act.
The Denver shippers 1 and ' merchants
mean business in this fight against what
they claim is an inequitable provision that
works against all inland cities that have
not the- benefit of water competition.
Should their claim be successful tbe South
ern Pacific will have to revise its freight
tariff for interior stations.
The Interstate Commission will take
testimony in Denver and more in Chicago
before arriving at a decision on tbe

A SUSPICIOUS TIRE.
Fire Marshal Tow. Investigates a Blaze
on Broderick Street.
Fire Marshal Towe investigated a sus
picious case of fire at 303 Broderick street
yesterday and has come to the conclusion
that the burning of the residence of R. Tis
dale at that address was incendiary.
Tisdale claimed burglars had entered the
house during the absence of the family
and the fire followed their visit. The
building is owned by J. I). Sullivan, the
attorney, and is occupied by Tisdale as a
residence and sboestore. He carried an
insurance of $2000 on the contents and it is
believed by the Marshal that he desired
the money and fired the building for that
reason. Tisdale '« arrest may follow.
