908 Broadway, May 8. j
The wind whistled in Oakland to-day,
but contrary to all former high winds this
one had a particular political signifi
It is well known that politics dominate
everywhere in this city from the purchase
of municipal tead pencils to the water
front suit, but this is the first time that
Boreas has come to the aid of any one
party in a political campaign and the dol
lar-tax limit received its first black eye.
All through the day the streets were
practically "out of sight." Dust, posters,
rubbish, signboards, wrecks of awnings
and other things having a tendency to
blind people and cause them to imperil
their souls filled the air, but not a sprink
ling cart was in sight.
The ordinary citizen would not have
cared had the tax levy been $1 or 1 cent.
The elderly gentlemen and their wives 1
•would have signed a petition for it to be
increased to dollars. The bloomer girl on
her wheel would not have cared had the
Jevy bankrupted her sire if only a surplus
would thereby be created to pay for a few
The merchants, anxious as many of
them are to possess real estate, would
rather have sacrificed a few cents p«r
centum than put up with the amount of
realty that spread itself all over their
stores and played havoc with fine goods
and finer features, thereby keeping their
customers at home.
The Non-Partisan members of the Coun
cil danced a war quadrille, the Mayor
looked somewhat despondent, and the
people on the streets spent their time
about equally between chasing their hats
and paying their respects to the dollar tax j
When the many patrons of the daily
papers looted on their porches and dis
covered that their news budgets were in '
the next vacant lot. they almost wished
that the soiid nine was in power again j

On Broadway the only reliefs to the
clouds of dust were the numerous hats
and other articles that were flying through
the air. At Eleventh and Broadway a
lady was hit by a flying sign this after
noon and injured, but not seriously. Su
perintendent of Schools MoClymonds was
forced to walk six blocks after a cable-car
had churned his silk tile to pieces.
After noon, when it became apparent
that the clouds of dust were liable to
cause an accident at the junction of San
Pablo avenue, Telegra h avenue and New
Broadway, where tnree car systems cross,
a solitary cart made its appearance and
travel was somewhat safer.
It was certainly the heaviest wind expe
rienced here this season and the most un
pleasant day Oaklanders have known.
The old courthouse chimney that has
been swayine to and fro in the wind for
years was the cause of much uneasiness
to-day. The County Clerk called the Fire
Warden and some additional .guys were
ordered to be attached to the tottering

ALAMEDA, Cal., May B.— When the
hole dug at the southeast corner of Clem

in by Mr. Delanoy's forces, it was sur
mised that the project bad been volun
tarily abandoned by the Delanoy- Lloyd-

on, however, the reason became apparent.
The hole was in ths wrong place. New
hoies were sunk, and early in the afternoon
three poles were erected and a wire
stretched. There are nine men at work at

roses and pelargoniums, lias been seldom
seen. The large hall was completely
filled with exhibits of the most select sort,
and those who are prominently connected
with the displaying of Berkeley's beauti
ful flowers say that the show will prove to
be eminently more successful than the one
held last year. Several of the exhibitors
have come from San Francisco with their
contributions, and the interest generally
is widespread. La France and Cecil
Bruner rose 3, beside Shirley poppies, be
gonias. Delargoniums and pansies were
I greatly in evidence.
A throng of visitors continued to pour
J into the hall throughout the day, but to
| night the building was fairly crowded
! with a galaxy of young and fair maidens,
who Lad come to see the display and to
listen to the musical programme. The
show will continue all day to-morrow and
until 10 o'clock In the evening.
Just within the entrance to the hall
stands a huge jar of Shirley poppies, ex

CANNOT SEE THE TICKET MAN
Chief Lloyd Is Eoing Some Thinking.
Result of a Former
Oakland Office Sas Fbakctsco Call, )
908 Broadway, May 8. j
Big Jim, the lottery king from across tho
bay, has paid many thousands of dollars
into the city treasury for fines for his
agents here since Chief of Police Lloyd
took office. He has become tired of it, and
in casting around for possible relief he has
devised a plan that is at least ingenious,
though it is not proof against law and
The main point brought out by the
prosecution has been that of identifica
tion. The purchaser has always been able j
to swear positively that tlie Chinaman in |
the dock was the actual seller of the
ticket. This conclusive testimony has
been very expensive to the lottery men,
and they have directed all their energies
toward finding a scheme to offset it. They
were rejoicing that they had found it, when
they were suddenly disappointed.
A few days ago the many gambling
joints vere all provided with very heavily
built partitions. Behind this partitiou sits
the man who sells the tickets. In the par
tition is a hole just large enough for a
man's hand to pass through.
A Chinaman sits between the entrance
and the partition and asks the prospective
purchaser what is wanted. A little con
versation follows and then a hand is poked
through the hole with the desired number
of tickets in it, and is not withdrawn until
the money is placed in the yellow palm.
This plan has worked like a charm. The
pnrchaser could not see from whom he
purchased the ticket, and consequently
could not identify him. Under these cir
cumstances a successful prosecution would
be impossible, and so the customary ar
rests have fallen off of late.
Last night the scheme nearly came to a
sudden end. A private detective went to
a joint on Eighth street, between Broad
way and Washington. The questions
were asked and the sleek hand was pushed
through the hole.
But no money was put in it. Instead, a
handcuff was very deftly placed around
the wrist by the detective. There was a
loud howl, and, although the detective
huug on with all bis strength to the com
panion handcuff, he could not hold his
own. Probably not less than half a dozen
hands were pulling on the inside, and the
other cuff was jerked out of the detective's
A few seconds later the handcuffs were
pushed through the hole, and, after the
slide was let down, the outside sentinel
announced that business for the day was
The partitions are made particularly I
strong, and even should a posse of police .
raid one of the protected joints they are :
so strongly built that there would be j
ample time for the t.cket-seller to escape,
before an entrance could be effected.
"I am uoing a little thinking," said
Chief Lloyd to-day, "and do not care to
tell in advance what may be done."
A few weeks ago Chief Lloyd did some '
thinking, and a few nights later forty j
Chinamen were landed in the City Prison,
and Big Jim had to produce nearly $1500
to procure their license.

OAKLAND, Cal., May B.— Under the
existing ordinance the Auditor cannot
draw his warrant unless the requisition
has been signed by the Mayor. The Coun
cil has authorized the purchase of supplies
in several instances recently, but the
Mayor has refused to indorse the requisi
tion. This is the case with Joseph Har
ris, and it is probable the auditor will be
mandamused so as to get the law passed
