THE RAILROAD WEAKENS
Effort by the Southern Pacific
to Compromise the
WHAT THE CONDITIONS WEHE.
Byron Waters Offered to Reinstate
Knox and the Other A. R. U.
The Southern Pacific Railway Company
has made its lirst move in the suits brought
against it for $500,000 exemplary damages
each by Harry A. Knox, Thomas Comp
ton and James Mullin, the three members
of the American Railway Union's media
tion committee during the strike last year.
Early in the month . the complaint of
Knox was filed by Attorney Monteith, and
since then that in the Compton case has
gone upon record. The Mullin complaint
will be ready in a few days— as soon as his
signature is attached to it.
The first move of the octopus is in the
nature of a complete "come-down." It
had black-listed and boycotted the mem
bers of the A. R. U. ever since the strike,
and not a member of the union, if known
to be such, had been able to get work of
any kind with the corporation. Finally
the three persecuted members named con
cluded to go into the courts and see
whether the judiciary of the country
■would recognize the right of a man to
labor as well as the ri^ht of a corporation
.to run its own business to suit itself— if
not the public.
This was an unexpected proceeding on
the part of the aggrieved men— something
the legal talent of the railroad monopoly j
had not calculated upon. When, there- j
fore, copies of the papers were served upon I
the company the hired lawyers received a
shock of surprise that was almost paralyz
ing. Byron Waters, the claim attorney,
was the lirst to recover from it and imme
diately hied himself to the oilice of Air.

In years gone by Messrs. Water 3 and
Monteith had enjoyed close terms of
friendship in t?an Bernardino. Mr.
Waters, therefore, opened up with some
w, you know, George, this is no way j
to treat an old friend— bringing these suits
like this. It wounds my vanity, George,
to think that you would so socn* forget an
old frieud.' 1
"Well, this isn't a question of friendship,
Byron," Mr. Monteith replied; "this is
purely a matter of business; and you know
that railroads and law offices are run on
business principles and not sentiment.
You fellows may have allowed a little
sentiment to actuate you— sentiment of the j
wrong kind, it appears — but Fimon-pure |
business principles only are allowed to be
.red in the course my clients and
If have taken."
: 'oh, that's all right, but look here,
.' Mr. Waters resumed, coaxingly,
'•don't you suppose those fellows could be
met half way? I'll tell you what we will
do. We will pay them their wages from
the time they ceased to be in the com
pany's employ and we will reinstate them
In their positions if they will only with
draw these suits."
Mr. Monteith's answer was not satis- :
factory, and Mr. Waters left with a pained
expression on his countenance.
•We will not accept any compromise," j
Mr. Monteith said to a Call reporter yes- j
terdav afternoon; "that is, I can't accept !
any compromise because I have not been j
so instructed by my clients. Ail I can do j
is to go anead with the cases in the absence j
of instructions to the contrary. I will i
push only these three cases, although I j
could begin proceedings in any number of •
damage suits if I wanted to. A great |
many of the men have been to me and
asked me to commence suits for them
since the complaint in the Knox action
was made public."
Harry Knox. when asked about Mr.
Waters' attempt to compromise, said that j
bis case was being managed by his attor
ney, and, as the latter knew more about
law than he did, he would not presume to
instruct Mr. Monteith as to his course of
"I am averse to any compromise being j
. made now," continued Mr. Knox; "the
matter has gone too far and it is too late
now to talk of compromising. The com
pany had plenty of opportunities to meet
us half way before we began these suits if
it had felt so disposed.
"The object of these suits is to determine j
whether a workingman has any right in
this country which a capitalistic monop
oly is justly bound to respect, and to ascer
tain whether the judicially stem in vogue
will weigh the poor mechanic and the rich
capitalist equally on the scales of justice.
For us to accept the temporary advantage
offered would, I fully believe, be equiva
lent to deserting the ranks of labor in the
great controversy now going on between
the oppressed and the oppressors. Be
sides, it is only a bait anyway, I think,
and if we bit at it we would find our
selves in a trap; that is; it would amount
to the selling of our causes of action,
which are righteous ones, for a mere mess
of pottage, and what would we then have

us with a grievance which will give the

SITE FOR THE COLLEGES
A Question Which Is Puzzling
the Members of the State
Doctor Beverly Cole and Mr. Beckett
Express Their Views In Favor
of His Offer.
There promises to be a lively time when
the Committee having in charge the selec
tion of a site for the Affiliated Colleges of
the State University meets, some day dur
ing the corning week. Ever since the ap
propriation was made by the last Legis
lature of $250,000 for buildings for the
colleges the committee appointed to look
after the matter has been seeking a site
whereon the buildings could be erected.
Some eighteen or twenty sites have been
offered, but as many involved purchase
money, and as there is no appropriation
for the buying of a site, the committee
looked upon such offers with a "glassy
eye," as the slang phrase goes. Now it
has settled down to about two proposi
One is the offer of Mayor Sutro to give
twelve acres of land on J street, near
Fourth avenue, adjoining a similar sized
tract upon which he will erect his library
building, and the other is the proposition
to locate the library on the three square
blocks bounded by Fifteenth, Sixteenth,
Bryant street and Potrero avenue. For
this property $50,000 is the latest offer
made, and if the same is accepted the pur
chase money will have to be raised by sub-
It is between these two propositions that
the committee is divided, and so close is
the feeling that it is doubtful just how the
matter will go. Dr. 11. Beverly Cole, the
chairman of the committee, is unqualifiedly
in lavor of accepting Mayor Sutro's offer.
"It is in my opinion," he said, "a gener
ous gift, and taken in connection with the
fact that his magnificent library, which
alone represents a fortune, will be located
next door to our college buildings, it
should be accepted. 1 will not say but that
the Potrero site would be more advan
tageous, because of its nearness to the
City and also to the County Hospital, but
then the City is growing rapidly westward,
and it is to the future that we must look.
Then again here is a site offered us for
nothing, and if we take the other we
would be obliged to go around begging for
money to purchase ii with.
"It is a question whether we could raise it
or not. Even if we could, though, there
will be an outlay for the erection of em
bankments and grading, not to take into
consideration the smallness of the prem
ises in comparison with the Sutro tract
and the bad location. It is no place for the
college building down in that s.vamp hol
low, anyhow. As to the extent of land,
since making a tour through the Eastern
States I am convinced that it is too small.
For such a purpose we cannot have too
much ground around the building, as in
time extended quarters will necessarily be
required. Then, again, speaking of the
Potrero land, there are Hampshire and
York streets running through it.
"Can those streets be closed? The ques
tion involved is one which requires serious
attention. In accepting the Sutro tract
we have no difficulties to contend with
and all the money we would have to ex
pend is in the erection of the buildings."
F. A. Beckett, another member of the
committee, was a hearty indorser of all
that Dr. Cole said regarding the Sutro
tract. He has been holding conferences
with the Mayor on the subject and has
gained several concessions which may
have some weight with the committee
when the matter comes before it for con
"When I spoke to Mr. Sutro," said Mr.
Beckett, "I found that he took a great in
terest in the matter and that he was
anxious to co-operate in every possible
way. 1 told him that while his gift was
one to be appreciated still there should be
some appropriation made for the support
of the library which he proposed to locate
on the tract.* He thought that the sugges
tion was a good one and made out an
agreement that if we accepted his offer and
located the Affiliated Colleges on his tract
he wouldgive three blocks on the north side
of J street in trust for the benefit and sup
port of the library. One of these blocks
is worth $190,000 and the whole represents
"Taken in connection with the library
and college tract, the total valuation is
over $500,000. But aside from monetary
considerations, I think that everything
should be done to keep that incomparable
library of Mr. Sutro's in this City, and here
is our opportunity. Also, Mr. Sutro has
agreed to give us all the red rock we require
for macadamizing the roads in and around
the tract, and for any other purposes for
which we may require it. I tliink the
committee will accept the proposition."
Notwithstanding Dr. Cole's and Mr.
Beckett's hope 3, there is reported to be a
feeling among some members of the com
mittee in favor of the Potrero site, and
when the. matter comes up for settlement
the discussion will be warm, and the out
come is something that can only be
The Peculiar Position in Which Mrs.
Mollie French Was Placed Is
Told in Court.
A peculiar case on a search-warrant was
heard by Judge I,ow yesterday. Mrs.
Mollie French was the complainant and
Mrs. Sarah French of .31 Oak Grove
avenue the defendant. They stand in the
relation of daughter-in-law and mother
Mrs. Mollies husband died recently in
his mother's house, leaving her with two
young children. Before his death he had
taken all their wedding presents and a
number of articles belonging to his wife
and children to his mother's bouse.
After his death Mrs. Mollie asked her
mother-in-law for the effects of her hus
band and her own and children's effects,
but the mother-in-law refused to part with
them. Mrs. Miller thereupon applied for a
search-warrant and the disputed articles
were brought into court yesterday.
The mother-in-law said she had paid her
son's funeral expenses and she would not
give up the effects unless her daughter-in
law refunded the money.
"How can I do that," said Mrs. Mollie,
with tears in her eyes, "when your son
left me nothing with two young children
Judge Low decided to divide the effects
equally between them.

A LAWSUIT AS A GAME
California Invention Suggested
by the Martin Will
LEGAL WHIST AS A NOVELTY.
The Inventor Is John Q. Brown of
the Clerk's Office to the
During the progress of the Martin will
case the number of people who dropped
into the office of the clerk of the Board of
Supervisors from the upper corridors of
the City Hall asKinsr all manner of foolish
questions, chiefly the way to the court
room, took up a large part of the time of
the clerks there. Mrs. Isabella Martin
herself called in once or twice with a ques
tion or two, for it seems to be common
knowledge that if Mr. Russell's assistants
don't happen to know everything they
have at ieast exhaustive patience — and,
besides, they do know pretty nearly
everything in their line.
When the lawyers began their long
speeches it will be remembered the ordin-
ary courtroom became too small for the
public pressure upon it, and Judge Coffey
took possession of the Supervisors' meet
ing-room, which adjourns tiie clerk*
office. For days and days the shouting of
the lawyers, which the thick walls could
not keep out, formed an accompaniment
to the routine work of the clerk's office,
and people, discovering that they could
get into the courtroom through the office,
riled in in such numbers that the doors
had to be kept locked, to the great annoy
ance of those who had business in the
The great interest so manifested by the
public made an impression upon Assistant
Clerk John Q. Brown Jr.
'•It's a great game," so many of them
said as they jostled in and out that at last
the saying carried to Mr. Brov.-n an idea.
Yesterday Mr. Brown received through
the mail official notice that his application
for a patent on the idea had been granted.
It is a new and, as Mr. Brown says, "a
great game." It is called "The Widow's
Lawsuit or Legal Whist." It is the result
of several evenings' hard thinking on the
part of the inventor, in which he evolved
an idea in games so entirely distinctive
from all others that a patent was granted.
The game has been played enough pend
ing the coming of the patent to have al
ready an army of enthusiastic votaries.
Every one of them says it is fascinating.
The game represents a suit at law, where
a widow is trying to uphold the will ox her
deceased husband in favor of herself and
two children against the machinations of a
contestant, who brings in a child — a pre
sumptive heir — to make claim to a portion
of the fortune.
It is played with fifty-two cards upon a
chart representing a trial as it actually ap
pears, and as represented in the diagram.
Each card represents a distinct and sep
arate character, such as the judge, widow,
lawyers, spectators, etc., each being a col
ored lithograph. The cards consist of six
suits of unequal number in each suit, cor
responding to the suits or groups upon the
boan', and five independent cards. These
arc the widow's lawyer, the contestant's
lawyer, the contestant, the contestant's
child and the omnipotent policeman.
The cards are dealt one at a time to the
players, as in whist, and any number can
piay from two up, although four or six
players make the most interesting game.
Xo. 1 of each suit can be played first, and
must be played before the next following
can be played. You must play if possible,
and if not, pass.
The judge is No. 1 of his suit, and
the widow's boy of the widow's suit. The
object of the game is to do one of three
things: First, win for the widow ; second,
win for the contestant's child, and third,
hang the jury.
"The widow or contestant's child cannot
win until the respective lawyers are
played," said Mr. P.rown in explaining the
game yesterday, "and you cannot play the
lawyers until all the jurymen and the
judge's suit are played. Then in turn the
lawyers are played, and when the widow's
lawyer is played the widow may be
played, thus winning for her. and likewise
the same with the contestant. You hang
the jury when you can dispose of all your
cards before any one can accomplish result
Nos. 1 or 2."
Few people realize the difficulty of ob
taining a patent from the United States
Government upon a game, because of the
lacK of the development of a principle or
the grasping of a new idea.
The patentee is a native Californian,
and a graduate of the State University.
Being wholly a. native effort it is the in
tention of the inventor to publish the game
here in San Francisco, depending upon
home manufacturers to accomplish the
successful inauguration of his patent.
COOK'S ACCOUNTS SHORT.
Deficit of Nearly $3000 in the Books of
the Southern Pacific Ticket
The fact transpired Friday that the ac
counts of James D. Cook, ex-cashier in
the Southern Pacific passenger department
at Montgomery and Market streets, were
short to the amount of nearly $3000.
Cook disappeared about two weeks ago
in a most peculiar manner without ac
quainting his most intimate friends or rel
atives that he was going away. He left
his desk in the passenger office as usual
one evening, but the next morning he
failed to appear. Inquiry was made but
no trace of the missing cashier could then
be obtained. Immediately an expert was
put to work on his books. At first he
failed to find discrepancies, but the examiu
ation was continued, and as reports came
from ticket agents who had been charged
with mi'<*age ticket books in Cook's ac
counts it was learned that such tickets had
not been sent out of the office. The infer
ence was that they were sold at head
quarters and charged to outside agents,
while the money received was not turned
into the company's safe.
The fraudulent work began early in July,
when a great many mileage tickets were
I sold to travelers in the head office and
I charged to country agents. These opera-
I tions could not have lasted long as a return
[to the auditor would at once disclose a
I discrepancy in comparison with reports
I from ticket agents, and in such a case the
j whole matter could quickly be located,
i Cook disappeared before the time for
■ making a report to the general auditor.
The company was secured in Cook's case
i by the National Surety Company, which
I has paid over $2700 already, and has been
searching for the missing cashier, who was
last seen on a train at Ogden going East.
Cook belongs to a good family in San
', Francisco. He went into nice society, was
j popular in and out of the railway office

horseflesh. He purchased a dainty

after the gambling device that had brought
him riches— Wheel of Fortune. The

her lead and finishing under full sail
passed the finishing post a length and a

diversion clipped a quarter of a second off
the coast record, hanging up a mark of
1:53% for the distance, which is liable to

cellent race, finishing a close third.
The fine weather brought out a good at

times. Four of the six favorites won and
the crowd went home in good humor.
The 2 to 1 favorite, Gonzales Maid,

WHEN ROBBING A SAFE
Lewis & Anderson's Porter
Caught by Detectives
Hundreds of Dollars Stolen From
the Money Drawer In the
Lewis & Anderson, ship chandlers, 33
East street, have been puzzled for some
time over the disappearance of money
from the drawer in their safe. The cashier
would icave the safe-door open, but lock
the drawer where the money was kept and
go upstairs for ten or fifteen minntes to see
that everything was right, and when he
next had occasion to count the money he
would find some of it missing.
On June 13 $140 was missing; June 29, j
$35; August 5. $5; August 9, !jv>. This sort
ol thing 'had been going on for two or three :
years, and the total amount of the pecula
tions ran up into the hundreds.
At last suspicion fell upon Knud Thor
sen, the porter in the store. He had been
employed by the firm for about three years \
ana was always looked upon as a steady, j
honest industrious young man. The firm !
notified the police of the suspicions and I
Detectives Egan and Silvey were detailed j
on the case Thursday last.
Yesterday morning Thorsen, as soon as
the cashier had disappeared upstairs,
sneaked up to the safe and inserted a false
key in the drawer. He had just opened
the drawer and had his hand upon the
money when Egan and Silvey grabbed him
by the collar. He was arrested on one
charge of grand larceny and two charges
of petty larceny.
