TEACHERS; PENSION FUND.
City Attorney Creswell Sub
mits an Important
A TRIAL BEFORE DISMISSAL.
The Manner of the Creation of
the Fund Still a Little
Superintendent of Schools Moulder, who
lias been ill, put in an appearance at his
office yesterday, and was the recipient of
congratulations from principals and
The teachers, by the way, were all in a
flurry about two different and distinct
matters affecting their interests and duties,
bat they begged the Superintendent to be
ware of giving them any thought in the
fear of its causing him a relapse. '
One of these was the order requiring
them to report the residence of their pupils
on a new "block system" looking to the
of the City for the schools.
The other was the new pension law, over
which not only teachers, but lawyers, have
been struggling to gain some understand
ing since the Legislature adjourned.
Some time ago Superintendent Moul
der suomitted a request to City and
County Attorney Creswell asking
his opinion upon the essential
features of the law. Late yesterday afternoon
the opinion in due form was handed him.
The superintendent, however, had not
time to give it such attention as would
warrant him in expressing an opinion
upon the matter. The law, he said, was
of so mixed a quality that it was doubtful
if any lawyer could make anything out of
it. Mr. Creswell's communication is as
Andrew J. Moulder, Superintendent Common
Scliools : I have received your communication
submitting questions suggested by the act ap
proved March 20, 1895 (Stats. 1&95, p. 170),
Hiid requesting my opinion upon the same,
hence tola communication.
Section 3 dues not give the board the power
to arbitrarily declare that a teacher who has
taught In the public schools for twenty years
has "Decome incapacitatedm. fro performing ihe
duties of a teacher." The incapacity to perform
"the duties of a teacher" must exist in fact,
and the fact will not exist by the Board of Ed
ucation arbitrarily declaring that it does exist
The discretion is given to retire the teacher
when the incapacity exists, and not to estab
lish an incapacity when none exists.
section 6 alone provides away for the crea
tion of the pension fund. It reads as follows:
'•Sec. 6. To provide a fund for the payments
provided for in this act, the secretary "of the
Board of Education of each municipality shall
certify monthly to the treasurer of such 'muni
cipality, and tne Board of Trustees In every
school district out6ide of such municipality
shall certify and pay over in like manner to
the County Treasurer of each county, and 1
percent of the amount due each teacher as
salary for the previous month; and all moneys
derived from any other source shall be paid to
the County Treasurer to the credit of such
fund. Such board shall also receive and place
to the credit of such fund all moneys received
from donations, legacies, gifts, bequests or
Upon the construction of the unhappy ob
scurities of this section depends the practical
effect of this meritorious statute. It is plain
that the conjunction "and" preceding the
words "one per cent" has no grammatical
meaning in this sentence. It is a syntactical
waii or an estray impounded there by a misdi
rected legislative energy. It means nothing
where it is, it prevents the sentence from
meaning anything, and consequently no rule
of construction can be violated by omitting it.
T.'ien thu sentence, omitting the part refer
ring 'to School districts outside of municipali
ties, should read as follows: "To provide a
(and for the payments provided for in this act,
■ retary of the Board of Education of each
municipality shall certify monthly to the
treasurer of such municipality • • • 1

'I his means that the secretary shall at the
end of each month certify to the treasurer of
t lie municipality what amount of money is 1
per cent of the teacher's salary for the previous
month, whiclns the beginning and ending of
the duty of the secretary of the Board of Educa
tion in this matter.
The object of this certificate is to inform the
treasurer of the amount due from each teacher
for the purjioseof providing a fund for the pay
ment of the pension. Still the act does not say
in express terms that the 1 percent of the
salary of tiie teacher in the municipality filing
the notice required by the act must be paid by
such teacher, or that it can be collected from
them for that or any other purpose by any
The fund cannot exist without money, and
the only certain wav of obtaining it is from
collections irom the teachers. The money
cannot be obtained by the certificate of the
secretary of the Board of Education alone. The
certificate Of the secretary must be presumed
to have been required for some purpose, and
tl»*- only purpose it can serve is to be made, in
conjunction With the notice, the basis of the
voluntary or involuntary payment of the
amount due from each teacher at the end of
each month. The sipning and delivery of the
notice, required by the act, make it compul
mry upon the teachers to bear whatever bur
den" is required of-them by the act, in order that
they may enjoy its benefits. The only burden
is the payment of 1 per cent of the salary of
each month, and the benefit is the pension to
The treasurer is made the custodian of this
notice and ex-ofikio treasurer of the fund. The
possession of this notice informs the treasurer
what teachers are bound to bear the burden of
the act, and the receipt by him of the certifi
cate of the secretary of the Board of Education
informs him of the amount that should be paid
by said teacher.
In my opinion, no other person being bur
dened with this information, and no one being
expressly charged with the duty of collecting
the money, the Legislature intended that it
should be the duty of the treasurer to retain
irom the salary warrants of such teachers the
cum of money so found to be due the fund from
I am Irresistibly led to this conclusion de
ypite the unfortunate obscurities and crude
ness of this piece of legislation. I would sug
gest, in order to avoid complications^with pur
< nasers of the warrants of teachers bound by
the provisions of the act, that the sum due the
fund on account of the notice filed by them be
made to appear across the face of each war
rant, so that the purchaser would have notice
of the sum the treasurer could retain out of
the same. Yours very truly,
Harry T. Creswell,
Attorney and Counselor.
I'nu-d June 4, 1895.
This opinion, however, disposes of the
question which has chiefly worried the
teachers — whether or not the law gives to
the Board of Education the right to dis
miss a teacher without trial simply be
cause she has been in active service for
twenty years. In Mr. Creawell'a opinion
the board cannot, under this la«r, dismiss a
teacher until incapacity is shown to exist—
which means that she shall have a trial in
regular form. . . . , , V
This will doubtless give a boom to the
organization of the pension fund, or
rather the formal acceptance of the pro-'
visions of the law by the teachers. . They
have been holding off for fear of placing
themselves in position to be retired on
pension. without appeal. " • • •'-,;'••
Among the champions of the law and
one who was largely instrumental in secur
ing its passage is Mrs. Craven, who, at
the meeting of the teachers at the Girls'
High School to discuss it, stated that she
knew a lady who intended to give the fund,
if established, a gift of $25,000. = , ■ ;
A. L. Mann said he had the word of
three lawyers for it that the teachers could
not be retired without a trial.
Miss Hunt was of the same opinion. She ;
said that it was well known there were
teachers in, the department who should be
retired, but who iiad no means of liveli
hood.' ' She was willing, she said, to con
tribute a portion of her salary each month
toward their support. She had no doubt,
the fund being in the hands of ' public
officials, it would receive many gifts and
bequests from the rich.

TRAINS TO SANTA CRUZ.
Special and Ample Facilities
for Attending the Water
A Pullman Train Service That In
cludes Three Days' Hotel
There will be no difficulty about getting
to Santa Cruz during the water carnival.
Ample facilities, both by water and land
will be afforded from San Francisco and
return by the transportation companies.
The special Sunday excursion train service
will be put on daily and the Los Gatos train
will be run through to Santa Cruz.
Commencing Tuesday, the 11th, the nar
row-gauge trains will leave the foot of Mar
ket street on the following time : 7:45 and
8:15 in the morning, and 2:15 and 4:45 in
the afternoon. On the broad gauge there
will be no special service other than that
provided for the accommodation of the
Half-million Club and its guests, and the
special sleeping and dining car train, via
Mies and San Jose, that leaves the ferry
depot at 5 o'clock on the evening of the
14th. This service is for the accommoda
tion of those who desire to attend the ball.
Tickets for this service are $8 for the round
trip, l«ting three days, and including
sleeping accommodations on the train for
three nights. Meals will be served on the
train ala carte. Persons who go by this
train will need no other hotel accommoda
tions than those furnished on the cars.
The regular broad-eauge service, starting
from the ferry, to Santa Cruz, includes
one train at 8:15 o'clock in the morning
and one at 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon.
Special round-trip tickets, good from the
date of sale until and including the 18th,
will be placed on sale at the ticket offices
of the Southern Pacific in San Francisco,
Oakland, Alameda and Berkeley on Satur
day morning, the Bth. The price of the
tickets will be $2 80, which is the usual
Saturday next the regular parlor-car
service on" the narrow gauge between here
and Santa Cruz will be put on for the rest
of the season. On Saturday, also, a second
campers' excursion will "be run to the
mountains of Santa Cruz. The excursion
last month was so successful, they are
likely to be repeated frequently during the
summer months. Over 1100 passengers
went on the last excursion, and even a
larger party will probably avail them
selves of this one. The train leaves on the
narrow gauge at the foot of Market street
at 7 :45 o'clock Saturday morning, and ar
rives here at 8:15 o'clock in the evening.
The round-trip ticket i 9 only $1 25.
The Half-million Club has accepted an
invitation to visit Santa Cruz during the
Venetian Water Carnival. A special train
of seven Pullman cars and diner will leave
the depot, Third -and Townsend streets,
Friday, June 14, at 4:30 p. m., returning to
this city early Monday morning, the 17th.
The train will be at the disposition of
members' families and their guests during
the entire stay at Santa Cruz, thus avoid
ing the necessity of securing hotel accom
modations while there. The Southern Pa
cific will have a ticKet agent at the office
of the Half-million Club, rooms 4 and 5,
tifth floor, Mills building, Tuesday and
Wednesday, the 11th and 12th of this
month, so that members can procure their
tickets for themselves, families and friends.
No tickets will be sold for this train after
the evening of the 12th inst. A special
rate, including transportation and sleeper
| for three days and nights, has been fixed
jat $8 for the entire trip. All members of
I the club with their families and friends are
invited. Special arrangements have been
made by the directors of the carnival for
their reception and entertainment.
To Santa Cruz by water is a longer but
a very pleasant trip. The steamship Po
mona makes weekly trips to Santa Cruz
and Monterey. She leaves Broadway
wharf Saturdays at 4 o'clock in the after
noon, reaches Santa Cruz the same even
ing between 9 and 10 o'clock, remains
there till 8 o'clock in the morning, when
she runs down to Monterey in two hours.
On the return trip the Pomona leaves
Monterey at 4 o"clock Sunday afternoon
and Santa Cruz at 10 o'clock the same
evening, and arrives at this City at 5
o'clock Monday morning. The round fare
for this trip is $4 to Santa Cruz and $5 to
Monterey. Those who desire it may take
the steamer Eureka to Santa Cruz on the
10th or the steamer St. Paul on the 14th.
In returning the St. Paul leaves Santa
Cruz on the 12th and the Eureka on the
16th. The local fare by boat is $2 50 each
way or $4 for the round trip. With all
these facilities at hand there seems to be
but little danger that anybody who cares
to attend the festival will'be hindered for
lack of transportation there and back.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 1895.
STOCKING FULL OF GOLD.
Handed by Paulsell to an Offi
cer After the Faro-Bank
BERT DONS A MACKINTOSH.
Curiosity Aroused as to What Line
the Defense Intends to
The prosecution rested yesterday in the
case of E. W. Paulsell, charged with rob
bing the Carroll faro bank on Market street
of nearly $5000, and the defense will open
Considerable interest has been aroused
in the case, and Judge Belcher's courtroom
bailiff, M. J. Sullivan, was deputed to bar
the door against the crowd which sought
seats in excess of the supply.
The toils have been drawing closer
around Paulsell, and the defense declines
to show its hand. From the evidence it
can only be gathered that it will be at
tempted to show that there is no direct
evidence connecting Paulsell with the rob
bery, and that all testimony against him is

GARB IN COURT YESTERDAY.

circumstantial and cumulative. From
certain questions in cross-examination it
seems likely that Paulsell's attorneys will
contend that he was- merely passing the
bank at the time, was attracted by the
crowd, and picked up $1000 in coin spilt by
the fleeing robbers. A number of wit
nesses are expected to testify to the de
fendant's good character.
There was a steady adding of links to the
case of the prosecution yesterday. One
incident of the morning trial was ihe don
ning by Attorney Bert of one of the mack
intoshes supposed to have been worn by
one of the masked robbers, in order that a
witness might refresh his memory as to
its appearance. More of the faro bank em
ployes retold the story of the hold-up and
police officers narrated the circumstances
of Paulsell's arrest.
The first witness was J. J. Allen, a police
officer, who had shown to Paulsell a mac
intosh after his arrest. Paulseli had re
marked that it looked like his coat.
J. A. Smith, doorkeeper of the faro
bank, told about his memory of the rob
bery and directed Attorney Bert how to
adjust over his shoulders the mackintosh
produced so as to make him look like one
of the masked thieves. After the raid was
over he went out and picked up $180 on the
sidewalk, where it had been dropped by
the robbers. Hammill and Billy George
had picked up $160 and $180 respectively.
His duty was to look out for undue in
terruptions to the game which he knew
was illegal. It had been running live
months, and Paulsell was a frequent vis
itor. It was customary for players to
keep "going the rounds." The door be
tween the inner and outer rooms was kept
locked, and he only admitted patrons, who
had to knock at the door to be released.
J. C. Satterlee's testimony at the police
court trial was read, contributing nothing
Harry Bowman, a hackman stationed at
the gore of Kearny, Market and Geary
streets, proved an important witness. He
had sprinted down toward the scene of the
robbery a few minutes after its occurrence
and had seen a man apparently chancing
his clothes in a basement entry at 626 Mar
ket street. His attention had been called
to the man by J. K. Landis, an employe at
Madison & Burkes office above the entry.
He saw the man emerge, wearing a brown
overcoat and a derby hat, and he followed
him until he disappeared up Kearny street.
The defense objected very strongly to
this testimony, which was understood to
refer to the second, unarrested robber, on
the ground that no conspiracy had been
proved in the matter, but the court held
tnat it was not necessary to prove a con
spiracy. Then defendant's counsel at
tacked Bowman on other grounds.
"You could have arrested this man,
could you not?" was asked. "Why didn't
"Oh, yes; I could have," replied the
witness nonchalantly, "but it didn't in
terest me; "I don't stake my life against
anything that don't interest me. I didn't
see him do anything wrong."
The witness had then gone bacfc to get
some of the money he heard was scattered
round, and at Landis' suggestion searched
the basement entry. There he found a
mackintosh, two hats (one soft, one a
derby) and a mask. He had thrown the
mask away later, but kept the coat, as it
fitted him, until it was claimed by De
tective Ben Bohen.
"You didn't volunteer any information
about the coat?" queried the defense,
"Didn't you conceal the coat and keep
quiet about it because you recognized the
man in the entry and wished to hide the
evidence of .his crime?" asked Attorney
This theory was vigorously denied by
Bowman, who declared that he had never
seen the man before and only noticed that
he was white and not colored and wore a
John E. Hammill, a "visitor" at the
faro-rooms while they were robbed, was
somewhat forgetful of all the circum
stances of the raid. Hie main impressions
were the command, "Hands up, and of
an eloquent pistol which had forced him
from the outer to the inner room and kept
him facing a wall there. He had fumbled
at the front window after the robbers' exit,
but failed to open it for a while, when
Porter Allen had raised it. Then he had
seen two men looking like the robbers de
camping iv different directions. He
couldn't tell whether the robbery occupied
an hour, or half an hour, or five minutes,
or any time at all.
James "Watson, a special police officer,
helped to arrest Paulsell at the entrance to
the Crocker-Woolworth Bank, while the
faro-bank employes were shouting "Stop
thief!" from a "window. Paulsefl, who
then wore a mackintosh and soft black hat,
handed him a stocking full of gold without
remark. The officer afterward secured
other pieces of gold picked up on the side
walk. At the station the money was
lumped together; there were at least thir
teen twenties in the stocking. A big,
loaded pistol was found on the prisoner
Special Officer Martin Tehaney was the
first to accost Paulsell, who had said very
little. To a remark "I shouldn't think a
man of your appearance would be in a
thing of" tbis kind," the prisioner had
merely replied, "That'll be all right."
Beside the stocking of gold Paulsell had
only about 10 or lo cents in his possession.
Under cross-exaiuimition it was brought
out that Paulsell would have had plenty of
time to run away before the otlicer's ap
proach had he been so disposed.
Jacob K. Landis, janitorj at 028 Market
street, corroborated Hackman Bowman's
testimony as to the mysterious man who
(•hanged his clothes in a basement entry
at G2O Market st. He; and Bowman after
ward found there a mackintosh, two hats
and a mask.

"How do you treat patients?" was asked.

conscience of the divinity within them,"
was the answer. ''We talk with them

"There is no fixed charge. We use the
voluntary system. If a patient is not able

is optional. We know our wants will be

Dear Sir: It is now about four months since I
was recommended by friends to attend your sani-
tarium. I had for a Ion? time been afflicted with
epilepsy and was under the care of skilled doctors,
but obtained no permanent relief until after I had
consulted yon. The herb teas procured at your
sanitarium had the magical effect of bringing about
a. complete cure. I shall most earnestly recommend
you to all who are afflicted. Yours respectfully,
