MORE POWER IS NEEDED.
The Market - Street Company
Contemplates Many Im
IN THEIR ELECTRIC SYSTEM.
Building an Addition to Their Bry
Work has already been commenced on
the new addition to the power-house of the
electric system of the Market-street Rail
road Company, on the corner of Bryant and
Channel streets. The plans for the struct
ure have been completed and will be given
into the hands of the contractors having
the work in charge. Already laborers are
at work clearing the land for the improve
ment, and excavations will begin within a
The new building will be on the Chan
nel-street side of the power-house, where
the large wheels whirr now, and will oc
cupy almost as much space as the building
to which it will be an addition. In design
and general appearance it will resemble
the Bryant-street side of the present house,
which now has rather an unfinished ap
"When our plant is completed," said
General Managpr Vining, "it will be the
finest of its kind in the country. From it
will be operated our entire system of elec
tric streetcars. Everything has been or
dered, and the only delay will be the time
occupied in construction. This will be
hurried through with all dispatch in order
to operate our new lines to South San
Francisco and elsewhere."
The present plant of the company con
sists of six powerful dynamos operated by
four engines. They are used to BUpply
power, which, is distributed throughout
the City on the various lines.
But now that there are several new lines
almost ready for operation the necessity
for the increase in power-supplying facili
ties is apparent. The machinery ordered
for the new building consists of "four dy
namos and three engines. Wires will ex
tend out on the Channel-street side, and
they will then be so numerous that the big
building will resemble the nucleus of a
massive cobweb. It is expected that the
new building will be completed and every
thing in operation within three months.
The railroad lines which will be con
nected with it are the line running over
Bryant street, the Sixteenth-street line,
the Fillmore-street 'cross city branch and
the Folsom street. The tracks for these
roads have been laid, the wires stretched,
and the cars are now well nigh completed.
It is possible that an effort will be made
to start one or more of them even before
the new plant has been placed.
There are other improvements in their
service which are now under consideration
which will require all the new power. It is
proposed to make a electric line out of the
EUis-street cable road, and it is possible
that other cable roadbeds may be torn up
and the service changed to a trolley sys
tem. That tnis will c>e done on Market
street is virtually admitted by the railroad
management, but they state that plans
are in no ways advanced. The horsecar
line running on Tenth street to the Potrero
and South San Francisco by way of Po
trero avenue is also to be a thing of the
past very soon and will be replaced by an
electric road. The latter may, however,
only be a single-track road which will con
nect with some other branch of the general
system. In fact, from present indications
it weuld seem that the city will be fairly
girdled with trolley wires which will all
connect with the large brick power-house
on Bryant street.

H. Holt, who, for the last three months,
has been organist at Grace Church. Frank
Coffin, who goes to Grace Church from
Plymouth Congregational Church, is to be
the leading tenor-soloist of the new organ
ization. T. Smith of the California Insti
tute is also to be an occasional tenor
soloist, as well as Algernon Asp

who made his San Fiancisco debut at a
Carr-Beel Saturday popular concert a few
months ago. William Kinross, formerly
of Trinity Church, Brooklyn, is to be the
solo bass. Hugh Williamson, from the
Church of the Advent, will also sing bass.
In addition to these leaders the choir will
be comnosed of a volunteer chorus of men's
voices, many of whom are fine solo singers.
When the new choir takes the place of
the present quartet full choral service will
be performed at Grace Church every Sun
day evening, the cathedral psalter being
used to supply the music. It is expected
that later special musical services will be
given every month, when some cantata,

to suit men's voices, will be sung after the

THE VETERANS' PICNIC.
They Held an Enjoyable Outing and
Reunion at Shell .Mound Park
There was any amount of enjoyment at
the seventh annual reunion and picnic of
the Veteran Volunteer Firemen's Associa
tion, which was held at Shell Mound
Park yesterday. The heroes of the
days when the men who ran with the
"masheen" just for the fun of the thing,
and betrayed a preference for fighting the
devouring elements over eating, were out
in force, and their friends, as well as their
families, were with them.
In some respects the day was more
lively than similar days were in the past.
It would seen that, as the years roll on,
the old tiremen are becoming younger in
spirit and feeling. Even going over
on the 10 o'clock boat, as most
of them did, the veterans were as jolly as a
crowd of schoolboys let loose for a holi
day. It was a beautiful day, and the feel
ings of the old chaps were right in accord
with the sunshine and balmy breezes.
The fun began at the gate. Kach one
who entered was given a numbered ticket,
which entitled the holder to a chance for
one of the ninety-five prizes which had
been donated for the occasion by friends of
In the list of prizes there was everything
from a gold watch and a terra cotta vase to
a keg of beer and a bale of hay, not to men
tion a cheese and an ornamental doll.
But the real fun of the day was in the
prize games. There were eleven of them
on the programme, consisting of races.
The contestants were boys and girls of
various ages from 6 years to 15, married
ladies, fat ladies, young men, veterans over
60 years of age, and veterans over 200
The prizes were as varied in character aa
those which were given at the gate, and
there was quite a contest for the first prize
of the veterans' race, consisting of a roast

Dr. R. Beverly Cole, president of the

office of president of the American Medical
Society, has returned from a seven weeks'
tour of the East, in the course of which
he visited the leading institutions of learn

He was in poor health during his ab
sence, and his return was hastened by the
advice of physicians. The death of his
sister, Mrs. Henrietta H. Marshall of Oak

to the eminent physician, and he was far
from well last evening.

course, I noted the respective merits of
the systems, and even the individual

of that sort would be personal, and I shall
not make it. As far as facilities for in

last evening, J. P. Dockery presiding.
It was reported by the committee on
transportation mat 'no definite arrange
ments had yet been made by them witli
the Southern Pacific Company for special

The telegraphic chess match between
Vancouver, B. C, and the Mechanics' In
stitute, San Francisco, resulted in a com
plete victory for the local players. The
Britishers resigned on board 2 at 1:30
o'clock yesterday morning. The game
lasted seven hours, and was played in ex

Dr. Lovegrove, A. Howe, V. Quiroga and
Oscar Samuels represented the Mechanics'
Institute and were opposed by Keith, M.
Smith, Proctor and Grant of Vancouver.
Vancouver succumbed on board 1 after
about five hours' play, as they had no good
defense against the onslaught of the
American players, who hpd the attack, ana
thus rushed matters in quick order to a
successful issue. Rodney Kendrick, Dane

MORE JAP CERTIFICATES
Another Cooly Labor Contract
Found on the Steamer
AN IRREGULAR PASSPORT.
Local Japanese Try to Post Their
Countrymen as to What They
The discovery of the Japanese emigra
tion bureau's certificates or contracts,
which was made by the Commissioners
who are investigating the Japanese cooly
labor question, haa caused much comment
among those interested in governmental
and industrial matters. Labor Commis
sioner Fitzgerald and Immigration Com
missioner Stradley have received several
letters advising and encouraging them to
go ahead with their work and secure such
evidence of the evils of cooly labor that
Congress will be compelled to shut the
doors against the Japs as well as the Chi
nese. The translation of the circulars or
contracts was puolished in yesterday's
Call, and it plainly shows that the emi
gration company in Japan is doing all in
its power to send the poorer laborers to the
United States. For sums of money vary
ing from $7 to $16 the company furnishes
the ignorant ire. migrant with a passport
that he can get for 50 cents.
The guarantee that he will be cared for
if sick is really a dead letter because so far
as can be learned the Japs who have be
come ill here have had to foot the bills
themselves. The guarantee of all the
work the cooly wants is likewise of little
use, as the poor fellow as a rule falls into
the hands of a contractor who keeps him
busy at from 40 to 80 cents a day.
That the Japanese Government has com
missioned these swindling companies, and
signifies its sanction by placing its inter
nal revenue stamps upon these certificates
is regarded as the most serious part of the
business, as it may lead to international
Those who are informed upon such mat
ters state that the certificates from the
companies in Japan are identical with
those formerly issued by the Chinese Six
Companies when the latter were Bending
thousands of Chinese coolies into the
Both documents guaranteed work, pro
tection, care in case of sickness and trans
portation back to their homes of those who
had paid the regular fee. In the case of
the Chinese the United States Government
put a stop to the business and the Com
missioners propose to see if similar action
will be taken in the case of the Japanese.
Another certificate of this character was
found yesterday by Inspector Geffeney.
The steamer Mexico arrived from Victoria
with six Japanese emigrants on board, all
bound for the orchards in the interior. On
one of the coolies was found a certificate
issued by the Goshi Koraisha Company of
Kobe, similar to the one presented in yes
The possessor stated that he had ob
tained it at Ozawa's hotel in Victoria, hav
ing found it on the floor. A little later he
said he did not know where he got it and
does not know what it is. At last he
broke down and acknowledged that he got
it at the office of the Goshi Koraisha Com
pany at Kobe, but forgot what he paid for
it. He purchased the document last
October. He had been in Victoria since
The lad's name is T. Nakagawa, but
when Inspector Geffeney examined his
passport he found that the young fellow
was traveling upon the passport of another
man. The lad says that he is 21 years of
age, but his appearance indicates that he
is not over 17. On account of this and
similar irregularities the landing of the
immigrants wili be deferred until next
The investigation by the Commissioners
has caused great excitement in the local
Japanese colony. Yesterday as soon as
the Mexico arrived two Japs from the
Japanese Christian Mission on Pine street
tried to get on board of the vessel. "When
they were prevented from doing so they
slipped around to the steerage and en
deavored to communicate with the immi
grants and instruct them as to what
answers to give to the officials and to say
as little as possible. Their extreme interest
in the new arrivals caused the two Japs
from the mission to be run off the dock.

Thomas Buck swallowed a dose of creo

The Appeal Question in Canada.
At Ottawa the other day Judge Tascher

judgment dismissing the appeal of the To

injured motorman, Bond, said: "I may
add that, in my opinion, a humane master
would not treat his servants or employe?
who suffer injuries in the discharge of
their duties toward him as this company
has treated the respondent. That a poor
man who, under the circumstances dis
closed by this record, can be dragced from
the jury to the Divisional Court, from the
Divisional Court to the Circuit of Appeal,
and from the Circuit of Appeal to this
court, to get a paltry compensation of $.500,
which the three courts, together with the
jury, held he is entitled to, is alike a re

Gradually Overspreading the World of
Weights and Measures.
The use of the metric system of weights
and measures is now practically universal
in scientific investigations, and is slowly
being introduced among manufacturing
establishments making machinery for ex
port to South American countries, where
the system is employed. There are a
number of societies in this country and
England which are endeavoring to have it
adopted for ordinary purposes by English
speaking people, but their efforts have not
met with much success as yet.
The English society for this purpose, the
New Decimal Association, has just pub
lished a report of its last meeting, which

Thomas Kyle pointed out a number of in
consistencies against which the British
tradesman has to contend. There is the
troy ounce of 480 grains and the avoirdu
pois ounce of 480 grains. hen an apothe
cary sells drugs at retail he uses the first
measure, although he buys them by the
second. There are also three separate
dram weights, the avoirdupois, fluid and

respectively, says the St. Louis Globe-
Over 200 separate ways of selling wheat
are used at the present time in Great
Britain. For exam Die, a bushel of wheat
weighs sixty-two pounds in Gloucestershire,
seventy pounds in Monmouth and eighty
pounds in Newtown. In Nottingham
shire a bushel of potatoes weighs eighty
four pounds, while .in Cornwall it weighs
22-1 pounds, nearly three times as much.
The standard hundred-weight is 112
pounds, but a hundred-weight of cheese in
Cheshire is 120 pounds. A butcher buying
meat at wholesale expects but eight
pounds in a stone, although it usually
contains fourteen pounds. The man who
wants a little ale and orders half a pint
receives ten fluid ounces, but the un
initiated imbiber who calls for a glass
cannot complain if he gets but nine, eight
or seven ounces, although half a pint and
a glass are generally regarded as synony
R. A. Hadfield, one of the leading Eng

good grounds for attempting to defend a
system under which the ore in one estab

in Cornish tons of 2352 pounds, was then
finished and weighed by long tons of 2240
pounds, and was finally sold by tons of
2000 pounds. As a business man, he was
convinced that the present system, if it
was worth that name, was greatly hinder
ing British international trade. He was
sure that the recent great expansion in
German industry has oeen much helped
indirectly by the wise foresight of those
who were directing the policy of that na
tion as to adopting the metric system from
the hands of its vanquished foe. "

A FLOOD OF TESTOttONV*
Thousands Have Been Cured at the Copeland Medical
Institute and Their
Voices Echo the Greatness of Their Work— Sufferers Seek Drs. Copeland,
Neal and Winn Because They Have Cured Their Friends and
Neighbors; Because They Give Genuine Specialty
Service at the Lowest Cost Known.
Nothing succeeds like success. It is their j
success in the treatment of chronic diseases, as I
attested In every case by fresh and interesting
testimonials published by Drs. Copeland,
Neal and Winn. It is their success in their |
chosen tield of work which their army of pa- I
tients are ever chanting. It is their success I
that enables them to treat for so low a fee all \
who come to them for treatment, to furnish |
medicines in addition and to give the most
perfect satisfaction in their work.
An illustration of the testimony given by
grateful patients is shown in the following
statement by Mr. S. P. Leeds, a gentleman very
well known, not only in this city, but over the
whole coast. He says:
"Sometime ago I placed myself under the
care of the physicians of the'Copeland Insti-
tute for the treatment of a combination of
catarrh and bronchial disorders. I took treat-
ment for a month or two, and was rapidly re-
covering my health when circumstances pre-
vented my continuing. Subsequently I re-
newed the course, and now am fully restored
to health, and am free from all the disagreeable
symptoms. I had an almost continuous dis-
charge of mucus from the nostrils, causing an
irritation of the membrane of the nose. It
gradually extended to the throat, and there
was an incessant irritation, producing violent
coughing spells, a fetid breath and a general
weakening ot the entire system. During the
cessation of the treatment the disease greatly
increased, and when I resumed the treatment
it did not yield so readily, but I persevered,
and as I have stated a radical euro has been
effected. I make this statement with a desire
that those who are similarly afflicted may be
cured, and advise all such not to be discour-
aged if they do not find immediate relief, but
to persevere and they will be certain of being I
completely cured, as'l was. My case is not the j
only one. Several of my friends, when they i
were convinced of the efficacy of the treatment
in my ea«e, have followed my advice, and now
not only rejoice in being restored to health,
but express their gratitude to me for calling
their attention to the means of being cured.

a repulsive disease every one knows, but that j

These Tumors Are Removed Without
Pain or Loss of Itlnod.
In no one thing hare Drs. Copeland, Neal and
Winn gained so much fame as in the removal
of polypus tumors from the nasal cavities.
Formerly the operation was attended • with
much pain and loss of blood. By the operation
of these specialists it is comparatively painless
and bloodless and withal permanent.
The case of Mr. F. A. Past, whose place of
business Is at 220 Bush street and who lives at
307 California avenue, Is a typical one. He
says: "About the first week in May my left
nostril became completely filled with tumors

removed the polypus without causing the least
bit of pain. I continued treatment fora few
weeks longer and now feel perfectly cured,
breathing through my nose with creater ease
than ever before. They are very kind and cour-
teous and it is a real pleasure* to be treated by
them. I feel very grateful to them for the cure
they have effected in my case.
