"I will head a subscription to defray the |
expense of a vigorous prosecution of these
members of the Board of Supervisors who
deliberately undertake to sell us out to the
corporations," said J. H. Bingham yester
It was a statement that be had made the
night before at the meeting of the Civic
Federation, and it was the keynote of the
sentiment of that meeting.

that has been aroused among the better
element of the people of Sap Francisco by
the exposure of the high-handed and
shameless manner in which the members
of the majority of the board have leagued
themselves with monopoly and the corpo
rations, and utterly betrayed the trust re
posed in them."
"The lone line of outrages committed by
the Solid Eight during the brief time in
which they have held office nas been
crowned by this proposed sale of a valu
able franchise under conditions which bar
out all competitors of the Market-street
Railway Company, not only securing the
franchise to that company, but making it
unnecessary for it to bid more than the
minimum sum required by law," said
George T. Gaden yesterday.
"Here is a strong, conspicuous instance
that leaves no shadow of doubt of the un
lawful betrayal of trust by the majority of
the board. If the people shut their eyes to
it and allow it to go unpunished then in-
deed do they deserve to be robbed of their

to have an irresistible fascination for
Speaking of the long line of outrages, it
may be as well to call to mind the more
jagged instances. Here they are :
First— The famous bituminous - rock
order, creating a monopoly of that
great industry in favor of the Santa
Cruz mines, and giving to the Southern
Pacific Company a complete monopoly
of the business of carrying the rock to
Second— The attempt to pass this order
over the Mayor's veto, which failed only
because. the solid four (solid In the in
terests of the people) stood firm, and
nine votes were necessary.
Third-The passage of this order in the
form of a resolution so as to avoid the
necessity of the Mayor's signature.
The resolution is practically identical
with the order vetoed. In this clearly un
lawful subterfuge Superintendent of

The Civic Federation and the Citizens'
Defense Association have both determined
upon fighting, and the character of the
men composing these organizations is a
guarantee that the unbridled loot of the
treasury and the wholesale granting of
public privileges to corporate monopoly
will be checked and punished.
Steuart Menzies, member of the execu
tive committee of the Citizens' Defense
Association, was in an impatient humor
yesterday because of the delay which the
councils of Henry N. Clement had induced
in the Defense Association with regard to
"I don't believe in sending these people
any letter of warning, or of waiting, for
that matter. But if we are to wait until
they have actually consummated this out
rage we need not write letters. They know
what they are about and if they persist in
it let them go and we'll make an example
of them. So far as advising them that
what they are doing is unlawful, The Call
has certainly done that fully, clearly and
repeatedly and they cannot claim igno
rance on that score. I am in favor of going
after them. It has become necessary that
we do something to save ourselves and the
credit of the City. A few horrible exam
ples need to be set up in public places."
"That is very true," said Mr. Clement.
The interview took place yesterday after
noon in the latter's office. "It is true that
these men nave been fully advised of the
nature of the thing they are undertaking
and of the penalty that attends it. But
there are two considerations that I think
we should observe. In the first place I
would prefer to kepp men from committing
a crime, rather than to stand by and see
them commit it for the satisfaction of pun
ishing them afterward, and secondly — "
Mr. Menzies rose and walked across the
room and back in his impatience.
"Stand by and see them commit it!" he
cried. "Haven't we stood by and seen
them defy the law time after time? In
this last instance we have a case that is
self-evident, and I don't believe it is any
part of our duty to warn them away from
the deserts which they have earned several
"But I was going to explain the sec
ond consideration," said Mr. Clement.
"When we have a case, why should
we not make it absolutely secure
so that we can win? If they sell this fran
chise under the conditions advertised, in
spite of the warning which, we will admit,
they have already received through the
columns of The Call, then I cannot see
how any court can hold them guiltless of
malfeasance in office."
Gavin McNab, as attorney, has been ad
vised to be present at the meeting of the
Civic Federation next Thursday, and ad

"The Market-street Railway Company
has gridironed the City with stolen fran
chises, but of all their outrages I believe
this to be the woist," said Mayor Sutro
yesterday. "We have no positive evi
dence of any monetary consideration re
ceived by the members of the Solid Eight,
but we certainly have a right to draw our
own conclusions. Here is an opportunity
when the courts should be appealed to,
and from what I hear on every hand the
opportunity wiJl not pass."

William F. Murray Arrested for Cruelty
and Failure to Support.
A story of "man's inhumanity to
woman" has come to light through the
records at the office of the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
On "Wednesday Mrs. Margaret Murray,
living at 458J4 Minna street, made com
plaint to General McCornb that her hus
band, William F. Murray, had given her a
severe beating and declared that he would
no longer support her and their three chil
dren. The general advised her to swear to
a complaint charging him with cruelty and
failure to provide, but she relentea and
thought she would give the recreant hus
band another trial. Yesterday morning
she again presented herself with the marks
of another beating plainly visible. This
time her determination did not waver,
although Murray had told her another
flogiting was in store for her if he was
arrested, and the warrant was issued.

An order was issued from the head
quarters of the State militia yesterday
which recalled the refusal of Brigadier-

A man with a dislocated jaw, which he
han acquired by getting mixed up in a
railway accident, submitted himself to the
skillful manipulations of dental steels in
the hands of Dr. W. J. Younger. The
patient, havine retained only about half
his teeth after the railroad interview, had
lost interest in mastication and grown
careless of the remnants of ivory in his
mouth, allowing tartar to accumulate,
much to their detriment. Dr. Younger
explained that this is a disease — pyorchce —
and gave a practical demonstration of re
moving the disorder. He lirst disinfected
the mouth, teeth and gums. He then re
moved the tartar, using tools that he had
invented. After taking out every particle
of tartar he flooded the spaces or pockets
around the teeth with lactic acid — an acid
of milk. The gums were then touched
with iodone. Dr. Younger explained
that the liability of leaving some
particles of tartar in the teeth is great un
less the dentist possesses acute sensitive
ness of touch in his finger-ends. These
small particles will increase, causing a
recurrence of the disease. Some of his
fellows opine that the doctor has some
thing more than touch to aid him in a
complete eradication of tartar and cure the
disease. But that is anc-ther clinic which,
like the letter that is looked for, will never
The advantage of the Bonwill engine

who removed some loose fillings 'from the

specialty. This tilling is temporary, and is
used for the purpose of wedging, thus pre
paring the cavity for permanent tilling.
The engine, or — as the uninitiated would
call it — machine, whicn operates the

it equalizes the weight of the arm of the

of the hammer alone.
The features of the afternoon session
were papers by Dr. \V. J. Younger and Dr.
J. L. Asay. Dr. Younger' s paper on "Sur
gical Bacteria' 1 was an exhaustive and
scholarly essay of great importance to the
dentists. It was discussed by Drs. J. M.
Dunn, A. F. Merriman and Miss McElroy.
"The State Dental Law and the Attitude
of Colleges Thereto" was presented by Dr.
J. L. Asay of San Jose. The act of Afarch
12, 1885, needs revision, according to the
pap*»r, which contained a direct charge
against college students with violations of
the State law. Referring to this Dr. Asay
I am credibly informed that almost every
business block outside of the wholesale district
in your city contains the oftices of one or more
college students practicing dentistry on their
own account without license, hindrance or re
proof, and this, too, not only during the inter
vals of eoljoge sessions, but also continuous
with their studies in that institution.
Tnat the college is ignorant of such viola
tions of the law by its students is not to be
supposed. On the contrary, due notice and

reached it from the State Board of Dental Ex
On the subject of revision of the law Dr.

diplomas from any reputable dental college
when satisfied as to the character of such in
stitution upon the holder furnishing satis

of this paragraph would leave the law in such
condition as to compel all who might here

tistry in this State to appear before the Board
of Dental Examiners and he examined as to
their qualifications whether holding a diploma

the Market-Street Company
Controls the Solid Eight.
Suit will be begun in the civil conrts to

the Market-street Railway, to compel that
company to withdraw its tracks from
Church street and to pay damages for the
theft of a right of way over two blocks of

A. R. Gunnison, chairman of the eicu
tive committee of the Church-street Im
provement Club, told yesterday in an
interview the plain story of the treatment
accorded the people of that part of the Mis
sion by the Market-street Railway Com
"This club," he said, "was organized as
long ago as six years, with almost the sole
purpose of securing a cable road across the
length of Church street.
"The members started their work ener
getically and before long had interested
more than one railroad company, and two
of them — the Market-street Company and
the Omnibus Company— applied for fran
"The Market-street Company of course
secured it, giving its solemn promise to
complete the road within two years. The
company told the club that they must be
given rights of way on Church street from
Fourteenth to Sixteenth, which was their
private property. The club went to work
and raised $2000 from the residents along
the south end of Church street. To this
the City added $500, for which sum the
right of way was purchased.
"Remember," said Mr. Gunnison, "that
the club had the temporary written agree
ment to carry out its part of the obligation
and complete the work within two years,
and felt so entirely secure in it that they
paid for and presented this right of way to
the company without any thought of the
deception and confidence game which the
big company was playing upon them with
"What the company did was to lay one
block with rails which the citizens watched
going into place with great satisfaction.
That was the work of a few days, and there
they stopped — and three years passed
away with never another move being made
toward carrying out their obligations. The
club saw the franchise lapse and knew that
the company had never intended to build
the road but had simply been foxy enough
to keep a rival company out of the territory.
"But the time came when the company
thought it a good business proposition to
really build their road over a portion of
Church street, and one night in March
last, as is very well remembered no doubt,
went out in the night time with a big gang
of laborers and stole these identical two
blocks which our confiding people had
bought for them. They built a road, com
mencing at Sixteenth street and extending
over two blocks, leaving all of Church
street south of Sixteenth without a road.
"A great row was made about this and
it was proposed to call out the police and
tear up the rails, when, lo! the company,
to the amazement of everybody, sent a
meek communication to the Board of
Supervisors saying that they intended to
take them up themselves and would then
apply regularly for £ franchise over these
two blocks. They knew with whom they
had to deal.
"They did all this, and despite every
protest the board granted them what they
asked. The suit to be entered is to secure
the forfeiture of this pretended franchise —
for it was all unlawfully done, according to
the methods so clearly set forth by The
Call — granted them by the Solid Eight of
the Board of Supervisors."
These are the men who granted this
franchise; they compose the league of
railroad agents known as the Solid Eight:
