An Electric Road to Livermore
Valley Depends on a
DIED IK HER LONELY CABIN.
Residents of Fruitvale Are Opposed
to the Licensing of Road
Next Monday the Supervisors will take
up the franchise applied for by G. P. Van
dercook for an electric railroad from Fruit
vale to the Corral Hollow coal mines in the
Livermore Valley. The matter is assured
the backing necessary to put it through,
provided the necessary franchise and rights
of way can be obtained.
The route has been carefully surveyed,
and Mr. Vandercook says that the cars can
be run to the top of the hill to the mines,
where the coal can be hoisted by means of
an endless cable or tramway. The grade
to the top of the hill will be only 5 per cent,
and the plans call for a very substantial
roadbed, over which it will be possible to
haul all kinds of heavy freight. The com
pany's intention is to make the hauling of
coal and freight a special business. The
settling of the country after active opera
tions at the mine commence will supply
the passenger traffic.
The total length of the new road from
Broadway, Oakland, to the mines is thirty
three miles, and the projectors state they
have secured the right of way for all the
distance, although in one or two instances
there is a proviso attached which the
company can grant without trouble.
The ro3d will pass through Livermore
and the citizens of that place are extend
ing it even' encouragement in their power.
Should the franchise be granted work will
be commenced at once and will be pushed
toward completion from both ends. The
coal mines have been thoroughly tested
and a large amount of capital is being in
vested in them.
The Alameda and San Joaquin County
Railroad Company filed its amended arti
cles of incorporation yesterday and its
route will terminate at Stockton. The
purpose of this company is also largely the
developing of the Corral Hollow mines,
but it will reach tidewater at the northern
port. The Vandercook road will reach
tidewater at Oakland, though the par
ticular point on the water front cannot be
decided until the franchise is granted.
DIED IN HER CABIN.
An Old Woman Who Was Missed Found
Dead in Bed.
Catherine Mann, an old woman who has
been living in a little holding in Dublin
Canyon, near Haywards, was found dead
yesterday morning by neighbors whose
curiosity was excited by her absence. Mrs.
Mann has one son and a husband living,
but has lived alone in her small home for
many years. Her son is in Alaska, and
no one knows just where to find her hus
band. She owned the property in which
she lived and it is supposed that she has
other wealth, as she always appeared to be
able to supply all her wants.
She was last seen in the evening, about
four days ago, and was then in her usual
good health. As she was not seen Satur
day or Sunday her neighbors went to her
cabin to ascertain the reasons. They
found the door open and the old woman
lying with her head hanging over the side
of the bed and a large pool of blood be
neath it on the _ floor. It was. at first
thought that a murder had been commit
ted, and a report to that effect was quickly
At the inquest ' last evening a nephew of
the deceased, John Sharky of San Fran
cisco, testified that he had not seen his
aunt for four months, but that he knew
she never wanted anything. An examina
tion of the deceased and of the room was
made by .Coroner Baldwin, who is also a
practicing physician, and it was evident
that Mrs. Mann's death was due to inter
nal hemorrhage. She was a fleshy woman
and subject to occasional attacks of heart
failure. - ' .
The Supervisors Dispose of a Few Appli
cants for Reduction.
Many interesting incidents are developed
at the meeting of the Board of Equaliza
Yesterday P.H. Felley asked for a re
duction of his 12-roomed house from $1500
to $1000. Felley was making an eloquent
plea for a reduction when Supervisor
Church asked him how much the house
was insured for.
"Three thousand dollars," said Felley,
"but it is not worth' more than $400 at

Works of Alameda was reduced from
$25,000 to $1. The Alameda Water Com
pany's franchise was reduced from $25,000
to $200, but the application for a reduced
assessment on the plant was denied.
It was shown that the artesian com

AFTER THIRTY YEARS.
Mrs.- Detels Brings a Serious Charge
.".. . Against Christian Schreiber., . .
Sophia Catherine Detels, a married
woman, filed a serious charge against |
Christian Schreiber yesterday. The com
plaint goes back to the death of the plain
tiff's father. Thomas Smith, in 1866. At
that time Mrs. Detels was a girl 5 years
old. Her father left a small estate, on
which Schreiber received letters of admin
istration. In winding up the estate he
sold a piece of land for $1100 to a man
named James J. Avery. . The estate was
closed up in 1867, but Mrs. Detels declares
that she only learned seven months ago
that she had been defrauded. '
The complaint says : "The purported
sale to James J. Avery was a colorable and
nominal sale. That Schreiber, conspiring
to defraud the heirs of said Thomas Smith,
and especially the plaintiff, procured
Avery to purchase the same on behalf of
Schreiber. Up to January, 1884, Schreiber
and Louisa Smith lived together as hus
band and wife."
Schreiber is now a comparatively
wealthy man, and it is averred that he
laid the foundation of his present wealth
from the money he obtained by fraud from
the Smith heirs. Mrs. Detels wants a
share of this and wants the sale made in
1806 set aside. ■
OPPOSED TO RESORTS.
Residents of Fruitvale Appeal to the
The residents of the -Fruitvale district
are determined that David Heagerty, a
well-known character, shall not procure a
license for a roadside house if they can
prevent it. Heagerty has filed his appli
cation with the Supervisors, and attached
to it is a large number of signatures.
A body of citizens sent a protest to the
Supervisors yesterday stating that Heag
erty's petition is not a legal one, as it does
not contain the names of rive of the near
est ten freeholders, heads of families and
citizens. The protest was signed by R.
Turnbull, J. H. W. Riley, John A. Jones,
W. W. Judson, C. W. Farnam, and ended
with the following request: "We would
further respectfully urge that it is not right
that citizens should always be on the gui
vive for such petitions when your honor
able board can easily pass an ordinance
which will provide that an affidavit be at
tached to the petition stating that the
names thereto attached are of persons
qualified to sign."
The practice in vogue at present is for
any one wishing a license to file an appli
cation with a list of names and if no pro
test is made the license is granted. The
protestants state that several licenses have
been granted because the residents near by
did not hear of the application in time to
protest. At the present time the San
eandro road is notorious for the number
of roadside houses already in existence.
A Bicycle Factory Anxious to Locate in
M. J. Keller, president of the Oakland
Board of Trade, has received the following
letter from the Manufacturers' and Pro
ducers' Association of San Francisco:
Dear Sir: We are to-day in receipt of a letter
on the subject of the location of a bicycle fac
tory in this State, in which the writer asks
'•what the inducements would be to a company
made up of men thoroughly conversant with
the business, with influence in the trade to
warrant the sale of 3000 in 1890 and a greater
probability of selling 6000." The people com

A Bright Outlook.
Just as the owners of the Corral Hollow
coal mines are about to put their coal on
the market there comes a report from
Washington, through the geological sur

END OF THE WATER WAR
Rival Companies Across the
Bay Are Maneuvering to
OFFER OF LEASE TO OAKLAND.
W. J. Dingee Ready to . Give That
City the Control of His Plant
for Six Years.
There is a prospect that the water war in
Alameda County will be .ended by the
combination of the opposing companies or
by an agreement to maintain rates. ?By
the existing war the water rates at Oak
land have been reduced about 53 per cent
during the past year, and the general ser
vice is better than it ever was before. :
The Contra Costa Company has always
fought against ■ the ". reductions, but has
gone heavily into the fight brought on by
the Dineee Company, and there have been
some bitter contests in the City Council.
Each corporation has about 5000 patrons
within the city limits, it is estimated, with
the municipal patronage divided, but both
of the companies have enormous capital
invested; and the stockholders are looking
for better returns from their money. The
city of Alameda is a portion of the field
laid out by the Dingee Company, but the
mains have not been laid and it is under
stood that there will be no present compe
tition in that part of the territory. aa .
When Dingee first went into Alameda
with his prospective water j company the
old company offered to lease its works to
the city for two years at a nominal rental,
with the privilege of purchase at the ex
piration of the lease, but the City Trustees
rejected the offer as merely intended to
head off the Alvarado competition. Now
the prospect of the competition Is consid
ered to be more distant than ever, and '
there is some talk among the citizens of
establishing a municipal water system to
supply Alameda alone.
Oakland also may own a water system
eventually, and there is now in existence a
special committee of the Council to con
sider the advisability of buying or leasing
the Dingee works. yy;'}
Mr. Dingee some time ago made a propo
sition to some of the Councilmen, at a pri
vate meeting, that the city lease the water
plant for six years at 5 per cent on the
actual cost of the system, and give Oakland
an opportunity to determine the value or
disadvantage of municipal ownership. Six
votes in the Council, with the concurrence
of the Mayor, are sufficient to obtain a
lease of the works, but the purchase that
was previously proposed could not be con
summated without, a two-thirds vote at a
special election and the issuance of bonds.
It is not believed, however, that the city
will assume control of the Dingee prop
erty, and it is generally conceded that if
the offer is rejected there will be a com
promise by the rival companies and per
haps a consolidation.

Captain Kellner Defends the
Raising of Tobacco at
Rumor That the Museum May Be
Closed— News, of : BBarbe r -
Captain Emil Kellner, foreman of the
United States experiment station at the
university, stated yesterday his views with
relation to comments made by several
local pastors concerning the raising of
tobacco on the university grounds. He
said: "Experiments will, be made with
tobacco raising in spite of all the preach
ers in Christendom, and any one who ob
jects to our growing the weed on the uni
versity grounds is either too ignorant of
the circumstances under which it is grown
or too bigoted to be of consideration, y
"In connection'";-, with the university
botanical and . agricultural gardens is a
United States experiment station. Each of
the States of the Union has one; and it is
our duty, where practicable, to make ex
periments in growing tobacco and every
other field product raised by the farming
community. Tobacco has been grown on
the University of California grounds- for
the past twenty , years ; in , fact, ever since
the botanical gardens were founded. .It is
used for the purpose of killing insects that
infest the greenhouse plants, and if you
had been here fifteen minutes ago you
would have seen us burning ten pounds of
it in the new conservatory. '
"We receive communications almost
daily from farmers in the interior asking
for information on the subject of tobacco
raising, and owing to these facts, besides
wishing to try a new kind of fertilizer from
Germany on tobacco, potatoes and sugar
beets, we raised an unusually large crop
this season. ;. y
"The statement ': that the growing of to
bacco on the college grounds has a ten
dency to induce weak-minded "students to
smoke is all : bosh, and ' even if they did
wish to use it. they could not, because j tho
crop is already harvested and in the barn.
"The rosarists; of Berkeley and Lorin
alone use about 2000 pounds of tobacco an
nually for fuming roses and killing insects
common to them, y >
"People can just as sensibly attempt to
stop the manufacture of wine by the uni
versity as to prevent us from , growing
tobacco for the uses to which it is p"ut."

HAS JOINED BOOTH'S ARMY
The Oldest Odd Fellow In the
World Becomes a Sal
Captain Williams Tells His Story
From the Platform of the
When the Salvation Army opens the Peo
ple's Theater, Oakland, Thursday evening,
the star attraction will be Captain Thomas
C. Williams, the oldest Odd Fellow in the
world. Last Sunday Captain Williams
marched with the Salvationists, and after
ward made a speech from the platform.
"When I' came to Oakland,'", he said,
•'there was not a thing here but oak trees,
and I've seen this city grow up from noth
ing. I helped to build the first church in
Oakland,' and assisted at ' the building of
many since. I worked ten years ago, help
ing to build the Salvation Castle on Eighth
street that the army will soon have to
leave. lam now 91 years old, and have
been a Christian since I was 19. >
"In 1849, when I was a middle-aged man,
I made up my mind to come to California,
and I have been here ever since. I was
then at Detroit, Mich., and when we de
cided to come out here we took passage on
a brand-new ship, and we named her the
Eureka. It was the happiest time I re
member, that passage out. The boys
made me cook, and they said the only ob
jection they would : make to my praying
would be if I didn't have the meals on
time— and there wasn't a meal behind time
all the passage out, for Christians are not
late, as a rule.
"Well, I've served the Lord seventy-two
years and lam happy I have done so. It
pays to serve God; and if there bad been a
Salvation Army when 1^ was converted I
should have . joined it then, for I was a
shouting Methodist." I was converted be
fore General Booth was born, but at this
time of life I consider it a privilege to stand
side by side with bis followers in their war
fare against wickedness. : It *is not much
use arguing' withy me, at my time*- of life,
because I , know whereof :I c speak and am
not speculating. And if I;. had to live my
life over again I would serve the Lord the
whole ninety-one years." ' . , '
.Although his hair is silvery white and
his back a little bent, Captain Williams is
very bright mentally and there is not the
least indication of feebleness in his speech
or his recollections. i
Captain Williams is the oldest Odd Fel
low in the world, having- joined the order
first in Detroit,' in 1824. . In those days iit
was not necessary, that a member should
have attained his majority. He is a native
©f Cumberland, England, and went to sea
when he was but 12 years old. He was
captain of a vessel on the lakes when he
was first made an Odd Fellow. • Of the
crowd that came out in 1849 he only re
members two who are living, George Hea
cock, an Alameda banker, and Senator
Jones of Nevada." After coming to Cali
fornia he . did not remain long at mining,
but engaged in : fruit-growing, and at one
time owned large ranches in Santa Clara
and San Mateo . counties. Captain Wil
liams has one son and one daughter living.
The : son is a prosperous farmer of ' Santa
Clara and the daughter is a grandmother,
living in Detroit. Two stepsons c reside
in San Francisco. / . y
Captain f Williams is a member of Cali
fornia Lodge No; 1 of San Francisco. -
She Was a Lady.
A short, broad-necked young man with
hair the color.of a parsnip and - the honest
sunburn of the cornfield on his face and
hands, walked into the office of a Detroit
hotel one night last week wrote on the
register in a large and scrawly hand : *
■ "Jonas Bebee and lady, Michigan."
'.'She's v your wife, I ; suppose?" queried
the clerk as he looked at the record. !.,'-;• ■
"You bet 1, Bin my birdie since 9 o'clock
"Then you'd better put her down as your
wife." yv';:* * - •'. Af
. "Jess as yon say," replied Jonas, and he
took the pen and. made the entry to read:
.'Jonas Bebee and wife, .who is a lady."
"She's a lady, is she?" growled the clerk
as he scanned the new record. •:'..
• "Yon kin bet your last dollar she is,"
heartily exclaimed the- new-made hus
band: / "Yes, sir. you kin gamble your
last shilling that she's a lady from tip to
toe. Is that entry all right now?" -
. "Yes, it'll do, I guess." y * rVv ■
"Then gimme a room and adurned good
one," too, ' and • we •" want ; beefsteak y and
mashed 'taters fur' supper. Yes, sir, she's
a real lady, Sarah is, and that's how I cum
to fall in love with '*- her. Took her, to a
picnic, and while ; every y other blamed
woman ate punkin pie out of _ their hands
she put f hern on'/ a chip and used a sliver
fur a spoon ! You bet . she's a lady, and if
you ketch her puttin' her .knife; in her
mouth at the table I'll slap $2 on the bill
and never say a word. '^Detroit Free Press.
