an effort in the Superior Court this morn

drugstore. The defense requested that
Oppenheimer be tried with the Holland

crime, and the request was granted.
Oppenheimer entered a plea of not guilt}'.

The conductors and • motormen in the
employ of the Oakland Consolidated Street
Railway Company, which operates lines ih
3erkeley, are up in arms to resent what
they claim is a base insult accorded to
themselves and their families by the Ga
zette, a Berkeley daily newspaper.
The article to which they take excep
tions is, in pyrt :
The electric railway cars are turning out as
very dangerous institutions, as far as young
ladies arc concerned. The most of the motor
men and conductors are young and unmarried
men, who have no fixed place of abode. They
are here to-day ana gone to-morrow, yet they
are nearly ail what is known as" "mash
ers," and many ■ young girl has been led
astray by them. No matter what electric line
you may pick out, you will find th« conditions
Take most any evening after 8 and 9 o'clock
and take a ride from one end of the line to Uie
other and you will obtain all the- evidence you
desire. li there is not a young girl on the front
platform talking to the motorman, there will
be one on the back platform talking to the con
ductor. If they are not on board when you
get on the car, possess yourself in patience, for
they will be on before you complete the trip,
and you will find the same condition of affairs
until the last car has gone over the line. This
is not on one car but on many, and while thc.«e
girls are on the cars no attention whatever is
paid to passengers. It would U> well for parents
to find out where their daughters areanerriark
snd in whose company they ar. j , aid then
there would be fewer heartaches for the
parents and fewer ruined and desolate girls.
The contemporaneous local papers have
taken up the insult and boldly denounce
the statements made in the Gazette. One
of them in an article yesterday said:
The editorial is not only a reflection on train
men, but is slander on Berkeley and the Berke
ley people. The article must refer to Berkeley
electric lines, and is an implication that our
young ladies are not only exceedingly foolish
but basely immoral. Probably no City in the
State has fewer girls who are more carefully
trained and watched over than this university
town. There is here very little flirtation, "run
ning around," tendency to social evils, and for
a local paper to so disgrace itself and our fair
city as to charge Berkeley's daughters with
widespread and continued immorality is a piece
of impertinence, an outrage and insult not soon
to be forgotten or forgiven.
If the paper means what it says it ought to be
forbidden entrance to every respectable houso
in town. If it does not mean what it fays it
ought to tender an abject apology— first to the
conductors and luotormen aud next to the
ladies it has slandered.
Superintendent Urimm of the railway
company, whose employes feel themselves
to have * been insulted, said of the article
referred to that it was a base slander per
petrated against the most gentlemanly and
honorable class of workmen in the coun
try. He said further: "My men are very
much hurt over the sweeping declaration
that 'it was so everywhere, for 75 per cent
of the conductors and motormen on the
night runs are married men, living in
private homes, and the cowardly blow was
aimed at the faithful woman at home."
There has been talk among the men of
suing the institution which has taken such
a decided stand against them for libel.
In defense of themselves a number of the
conductors have published, in an open let
ter, the following:
The article referred to starts by assuring the
reader beyond any question of doubt that the
"electric "street-railway was a very dangerous
institution, as must of the employes were
younp unmarried men and great flirts." This
assertion is fallacious, as three-fourths of the
men on all the street railways of this company
are married and residing in permauont homes.
The statement regarding the leading of young
girls astray is a deliberate falsehood born of an
impure imagination that sees In the slightest
action of another tne reflection of his own evil
heart of sensuality. We ask the prisoner before
the bar of public opinion to cite a single in
stance that has come to his personal knowledge
of one girl led astray by a streetcar conductor or

filed her second amended comp'aintin her
breach of promise suit against Major John
F. Hays of Oakland. Hays insists that
he was sincere in his attentions to his
fiancee and had no intention of breaking
off their en^apemeut, but Miss Lockyer
doubts the sincerity of his protestations
and says that the sickness of her lover's
father came in conveniently as an excuse

afternoon at the corner of Encinal avenue

been drinking heavily. When in his cups he
always threatened to commit suicide. Last
night he swallowed a dose of aconite and was
fortunately observed doing so by the chamber
maid. She made him swallow some salt
and water which acted as an emetic. He was
then taken to the Receiving Hospital and the
chances are that he will recover.
A BOY AND A VOICE.
One Was Five Feet and the Other Was
The boy and his voice were not mates.
That was evident the moment the former
attempted to use the latter. The one was
not quite a "rive-foot boy" while the other
would easily pass for a "seven-foot voice."
They both got on an Alley L train at Con
gress street and the boy undertook to say
something about having 6 o'clock papers
to sell, whereupon the windows rattled and
the car began to rack. The old man, who
had jumped so hiah that his head nearly
struck the roof, looked at the boy reproach
fully for a moment and then attempted to
"A little louder, please," he said.
"Huh?" returned the boy inquiringly.
•'Speak a little louder. Have you lost
The other passengers laughed and the
boy seemed somewhat discomfited.
"Paper?" he asked, going close to the
"No," replied the man gratified at the
success of his little joke, "I was merely
wondering why you didn't speak out in
stead of whispering."
The boy was close to the man's ear by
this time, and he let out a cry of "evening
"parsers" that fairly jarred the engineer.
He cot to the door first, and the book
that the old man threw after him merely
ruised a bump on tne side of the con

with the way his fellow-Commissioners
The Mayor contended that Lloyd was
not eligible. The deposed Chief did not
care to talk about the situation. He recog
nized that all attempts to keep his posi

Section 154 of the city charter Eays in
reference to the matter:
The officers, members and employes of said
Police and Fire Department shall be 'appointed

shall any removal be made except for cause
established to the satisfaction of the board.
The saloon men were fearful that all

Lloyd takes the office of Chief. He is
known to be a strict church man and a
prominent member of the Christian En

Mr. Lloyd said yesterday when asked
about Mayor Davie's charges as to his
competency: "Well, I hardly care to dis
cuss that matter. I consider it more in
the light of a compliment, considering the
source. For John L. Davie, the man, I
have no use, but John L. Davie, the Mayor,
I will treat with the respect and consider
ation due his office.
'•As to why he should display his enmity
toward me in the manner he has I am un
able to say, unless it is that I have done
more favors for him than I have for other
people. I have lived for eighteen years in
this city, and my character is too well
known to require any defense. I do not
anticipate that myself and the Mayor will
have any trouble, but of course I can never
be as friendly toward him as might other
wise be the case if he had acted as I con
sider he should have acted.
'■As to a contest over the office, I do not
think it is likely to arise. Between myself
and Chief Scha'ffer nothing but the most
friendly feeling exists, so far as I know.
Of course he may be a little angry just
now, but I do not think he will remain so,
and 1 do not anticipate any trouble in tak
ing possession of the office.
"I will carefully scrutinize the muke-up
of the force. It has bean said that some of
the men in it are incompetent, but lately I
have come to regard that word in the
nature of a compliment, and will rigidly
investigate all causes of complaint before
proceeding to take any steps in the way of
dismissals. Favor or prejudice will cut no
figure in the management of the depart
ment, and I look for an harmonious ad
Attorney Peirsol said, regarding the
likelihood of a contest: '"I consider that
ihe action of tne board was entirely legal.
I do not think Chief Schaffer will contest,
as he told the Coinmissiouers he did not

ment if the board did not want him.''

RYAN'S PLAUSIBLE WAYS
A Government Diver Makes
Love to a Pretty Dress
He Abstracts the Key of the Front
Door and Is Arrested for
Captain J. F. Ryan, a Government diver,
56 years of age, was arrested last night by
Detectives Anthony and Handley and

The complaining witnesses are Misses
Marie and Rosalie Gamier, dressmakers,

they were in the Grand Opera-house and
Kyan happened to be sitting next them.
He began talking to them about the play
and made himself generally agreeable.
Before the conclusion of the play he asked
permission to escort them home and they
Two nights later he called upon them,
and in the course of conversation told
them he was a single man and finished up
by asking Marie to marry him. She de
murred, as she did not know anything
about him, when he told her he was a
Government diver and a detective in the
Government Secret Service; also that he
had just bought a shin for $7000. Marie
began to think he would make a desirable
husband, when he surprised her by asking
her to lend him $500. This Bhe declined
Next night he again called and showed
her a check for $1250, purporting to be
signed by Goodall, Perkins & Co., and
asked her to lend him some money till
he got it cashed. She gave him a few dol
lars. During his next visit he told Marie
he had $12,000 in the Hibernia Bank, bat
did not have any money in his pocket* to
take him home, and she gave him $2. The
key to their front door was lying on a
table beside them and when he left the
key had disappeared.
A few days later both sisters were away
on a visit* and when they returned they
found Kyan in the house. Marie's trunk
had been broken open and $15 stolen. She
accused Kyan of the theft, but he denied it
and pleaded with her not to send for the
She asked him how he had got into the
house, and he said he saw two ladies com
ing out, and when they saw him they ran
away, leaving the door open. Marie told
him she did not believe him and ordered
him to get out and never come back.
He afterward pestered her with letters
and she complained to the police. Detec
tive Anthony set a trap for him by getting
her to write a letter apologizing "or blam
ing him for the theft of the $15, as she
had discovered that a Chinese was the
thief and asking him to call.
Ryan fell into the trap, and sent a postal
card that he would call last night. An

MISS HORTON IS FOUND.
She Was Engaged as a Do
mestic by Mrs. Northon
of This City.
Her Employer Notified the Police
Through Whom Relatives
The lost is found. Miss Georgia Horton,
whose disappearance from her grand
parent's home in Oakland createa so much
stir on Tuesday, had not found a place on
the stage, as her friends expected. Her
grandparents found her on such a stage as
the kitchen of Mrs. James H. Northon,
1114 Devisadero street, afforded, and with
the accessories of pans and kettles instead
of the luxurious settings the imagination
of the friends supplied.
The girl called at the home of Mrs.
Northon a few days ago in answer to an
advertisement for a servant. Her modest
appearance made a favorable impression
upon the lady, who engaged her. Her role
of maid was well played and Mr. and Mrs.
Northon were satisfied with her services.
Yesterday morning they read the ac
count of her disappearance in The Call
and immediately recognized the descrip
tion as given by the girl's grandfather.
She did not deny her identity with the
heroine of the story and Mr. Northon at
once reported the case at the police station.
Officer John T. Green telephoned the
Oakland authorities and they promptly
communicated with the grandparents,
Mr. and Mrs. P. D. Horton, who live at
lfX>s Market street, Oakland.
Mr. and .Mrs. Horton went to the
police station'and were informed by Officer
Green as to the whereabouts of their
granddaughter. They expressed the
greatest relief and pleasure at the news
and immediately left for Devisadero street.
It is probable* that this will be the last
of the girl's aspirations to earn her own
living, as it is said she was in an advanced
stage of homesickness.
Mrs. Northon said she had never seen
the girl before she presented herself in an
swer to the advertisement.
Miss Horton returns to the home she
abandoned a wiser girl for five days' tussie
with "the hard, cruel world" of which she
spoke in her farewell note to lier mother.
The young lady is a daughter of George
Horton, United States Consul to Athens
and a journalist and poet. She had been
living with her grandparents and left home
because of what she considered a severe
reprimand from her grandfather.
THE ARAGO'S MUTINEERS
They Are on Trial Before
United States Commis
PUT ABHOAD BY A MARSHAL.
Owners, Shippers and Sailors Are
All Very Much Interested
In the Case.
The preliminary hearing in the case of
the mutineers of the barkentine Arago
was held before United States Commis
sioner Heacock yesterday. There was a
large attendance of both ship-owners and
sailors, and quite a naraber of skippers
were seen in the crowd, as the question to
be decided is almost of as vital importance
to them as to the owners and sailors.
Should it be decided that sailors have a
right to refuse to work after having siened
for a voyage it will take from the ship
owners their most effective weapon in
fighting the Sailors' Union, and also in its
engaging deep-water sailors.
The defondants in yesterday's case were
Robert Robertson^P. H.Olson, John Brad
ley and Maurice Hansen. They shipped
on the Arago for a voyage to Valparaiso
via Puget Sound. At Astoria, where the
vessel touched, the men deserted, were ar
rested and put on board again by the
United States Marshal. The barkentine
Sut to sea and the four prisoners refused

without their assistance Captain Berry put
in here and handed the men over to United
States Marshal Baldwin.
The prisoners were represented by At
torney H. W. Hutton, and Assistant
United States District Attorney Bert
Schlesinger appeared for the Government.
Captain barxy was called, and he gave a
graphic accdunt of the voyage. The men
signed for trie round voyage to Valparaiso
and back, but on the first opportunity de
serted. At sea they refused duty, and the
barkentine came near being wrecked.
Chief Officer Smith corroborated all tne
Hutton raised the point that the men
hud been forced to go on the ship by a,
United States Marshal against their will,
and that, therefore, they were justified iv
refusing to work. Farther, that the law

finally Commissioner Heacock took the
matter under advisement. Both the at

case will be decided this morning.
