STUCK AT NOTHING.
Robbed, Drugged and At
tempted Arson in One
MUCH LOOT SECURED.
Holes Cut in Outside Doors and
Every Sign of Desperate
THE POLICE ARE NOTIFIED.
A. Schmitt's Residence on Buchanan
Street Daringly Entered by
A daring burglary was committed at the
residence of August Schmitt. 1719 Bu
chanan street, on last Thursday evening,
between the hours of 9 and 10 o'clock.
Entry was made by the burglars cutting
two holes in the lattice door which leads
into an alleyway between 1719 and 1717
The Lattice-Door Cut Through by the
Buchanan street, the bouse adjoining the
one burglarized. Tne necessity of cutting
the two holes in the door is accounted for
by the fact that in addition to the usual
lock which is generally used upon such
doors there was on this one a bolt a few
inches above the lock. The thieves after
having cut the first hole and shooting the
lock bolt back found that they could not
gain an entrance by reason of the bolt.
Consequently it was found necessary to
cut another, which was done, and the bolt
removed. From here an entrance into the
yard was gained and access obtained to
the back porch, where the kitchen window
was forced open by being pried with a
jimmy from the lower sill, where an in
dentation was left by forcing the iron,
under the window-frame.
Througn this window an entry was
made, when the kitchen door was un
locked, through which a fret passage into
the house was made easy.
The thieves evidently lost no time in set
ting about their work, with an evident de
termination to gut the premises and after
ward set it on tire. This was made mani
fest by their having removed the burners
on the gas gets in the dining-room and
turning on the gas in full force. The gas
-had been ignited, permitting the flame to
reach the ceiling, when the paper would
easily catcb lire and in time spread to the
woodwork and consume the entire build
Beyond all this an attempt to take the
life of August Schmitt, the proprietor,
whom' the burglars had chloroformed in
his bed while asleep, adds to the crime a
much darker hue and toes to show that
neither life or property baa" any value in
the estimation of the vagabonds who en
tered Mr. Schmitt's house.
The time of the burglary is accounted
for by tne movements of the family during
the early part of the evening. Martin
t-chmitt and his sister Miss Erstine, son
and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Schmitt,
had gone to a party, leaving their father
. and mother at. home. Eugene, a younger
son, was attending ; to his father's wine
store, on Montgomery street, near Clay.
About 8:30 o'clock Mrs. Schmitt went
across Buchanan street to visit a friend's
bouse, and Mr. Schmitt went to bed about
9 o'clock. One hour later Eugene re
turned home from the store, and on his
arrival at the house he found that while
his key would revolve the bolt in the door-

lock s r et the door would not open. This
unusual circumstance, together with the
fact that all the rooms in the house were
lighted up with a full head of gas, in
cluding the dining-room, caused him to
wonder what was the matter.
After repeatedly trying bis key and find
ing that he could not enter be kicked on
the door three or four times. This no
doubt surprised the thieves at their work,
as he heard from his position on the out
side what he considered the footsteps of
two persons running down the carpeted
stairs. But as tbe door was not opened
by those on the inside he renewed the
noise and at the same time called loudly
for ii is father.
After a while a response was heard on
the inside and Schmitt Sr. came down
stairs and, by removing a heavy parlor
chair which had been placed against the
door with the back securely placed under
the doorknob, he let his son in. No sooner
had he gained an entrance than he be
came convinced that something wns
wrong. His father was in a dazed condi
tion and Had found his way downstairs in
a sort of a mechanical way without being
able to comprehend the situation.
An examination of the house by young
Schmitt soon convinced him that burglars
bail been at work. Every room in the
building had been visited ana bureau
drawer* were emptied and the contents
strewn npon the carpets.
A satchel which was hanging in a closet
in his mother's bedroom was taken out
and cut from Bide to side with a knife and
a purse containing quite a sum of money
was taken and the satchel then thrown to
one side. The cutting of the leather was
necessary to get at tne contents as it had
In Mr. Schmitt's sister's room every
piece of jewelry that belonged to her, ex
cept what she had on her person, was
missing. An examination of the dining
room showed the evil intentions of the in
truders where they had removed the burn
ers of the gas jets and permitted the
flames to reach the paper ceiling, which
would in a short time prove disastrous.
After taking a hasty survey of the depre
dations committed Eugene tried to get
some account of the whereabouts of his
mother and other members of his family,
but any attempt to gain this information
from his father was futile, as that individ
ual had no recollection of what occurred
and hardly knew where he was or with
whom he was conversing. It was quite
evident that He had been chloroformed by
the burglars when they entered the room
where he was in bed.
The police were notified by telephone
and Officer Clancy soon put in an appear
ance and took a survey of the premises,
leaving the usual caution not to give any
information to the press, an injunction
which in part was tried to be observed by
Martin Schmitt, who when seen last night
by a Call representative said: "It was

By an oversight the thieves failed to
find a gold watch belonging to Mrs.
Schmitt, which she values very highly.
She accidentally left it on the mantel
piece, under a mat, concealed from view.
It is supposed that an exit was made in
the samo manner as had been the entry,
as no signs could be found of the thieves
having got away over the back fences.
This is not the first crime that has been
committed in tuis locality within a short
period. The house adjoining Mr. Schmitt's
— 1721 — was entered about two months ago
in a similar manner as was its neighbor on
Thursday night, and the premises ran
sacked from top to bottom.

Republican Executive Council on
McKinley, the Platform and
The Council Will Have Permanent
Headquarters and Boom Organi
The Republican Executive Council held a
comparatively brief but an important and
spirited regular meeting in Judge Bahrs'
courtroom last evening under the guid
ance of President M. Cooney and Secre
tary Oscar Tolle.
The couucil made three declarations on
motion of S. M. Williams, all of which
were adopted with applause, especially the
first one, which was as follows:
The Hon. William McKinley of Ohio is the
choice of the Republican Executive Council of
Californi* for President of the United States,
and in the event of hin nomination the council
shall u-e all legitimate means and make all
honorable efforts tor his election.
The other expressions which were put in
the form of declarations rather than reso
lutions were as follows:
The council heartily approves the platform
of principles adopted by the Republican State
Convention recently held in the City of
The Women's Republican State Central Club
of California is entitled to much credit for the
work performed in the interest of universal
suffrage in this State.
Then the following resolution was
adopted with hearty applause:
Resolved. That this council has the utmost
and abiding confidence in the action of John
D. SpreckeU as the foremost, leader of the
Republican party in this City and County.
The council will favor regular and per
manent headquarters. Last evening Oscar
Tolle, chairman of the committee on head
quarters, reported progress and the com

THEY ARE TO START A FARM.
Interview With the Mayor's Secre
tary, Taylor Rogers, Concern
ing the Matter.
Commander and Mrs. Booth-Tucker, the
consul, accompanied by Major Lewis and
Major No.'an, left last evening for the
north — Portland, Tacoraa and Seattle.
They expect to be in New York not later
than two weefcs from date.
They go away well satisfied wiih the
Salvation Army of the Pacific Coast, as
well as with their own labors here.
Despite the continued illness of the con
sul and the hurry of the commander inci
dent to the brevity of his visit they have
accomplished much. These handicapping
circumstances submerged them with busi
ness. They have successfully wrestled
with it and have gone away to other fields
with the jubilant consciousness that their
soldiers are loyal and tiiat their officers
are steadfast and may be trusted to push
the work with renewed enercy.
Yesterday morning the commander and
consul held a meeting with the officers
ana they came away especially pleased
with it, with the enthusiastic assurances
Commander and Consul Booth-Tucker, Whose Visit to the Coast Has Given a New Impulse to Salvation
[From sketcha made by a "Call" artist.]
of support from them. The consul was in
better form than at any other time since
cominp to the coast, while the commander
was at his very best.
A number of promotions among the field
and staff oilicers were announced and each
was greeted with volley after volley of hal
lelujahs. The promotions were as follows:
Staff Captain William Mclntyre to be major.
Adjutant Sam Wood to be staff captain.
Knsißii J. K. McFee to be adjutuiu.
• Hj.iii.iti Bill Day to be <-iibign.
Captain W. C. Bourn to b>- ensign.
Captain William Campbell to bi" **nsign.
Captain Charles Taylor to be ensign.
Captain Manhart to be eusigu.
Captain May Sprague to be ensign.
Captain May Dreis to be ensign, i
George S. Montgomery to be captain.'
Lieutenant May Ncuman to be captain.
Lieutenant Minnie W ise to be captain.
These are the first promotions made in
the army in the United States since the
Boott»-Tuckers took command. A great
number of promotions will be made all
along the line, but it so happens circum
stances have been such that these on the
Pacilic Coast are the first to be made.

Ensign McFee has been in charge of the

with him in the rank. It ib not at all likely
that promotion from ensign to adjutant
means a shifting of the field of labor, al
though change is the order of the army.
The meeting with the officers was held
at !i:.;0 o'clock in the morning and later
Commander Booth-Tucker visited the
oflice of Mayor Sutro and in the absence of
the Mayor had a long talk with his secre
tary, Taylor Rogers, concerning a plan for

It is proposed to secure a large tract of
land upon which men otherwise unable to

this direction in this country, and it is
proposed that it be followed by ttie other
steps that have already been taken in

of various kinds in the City for the unem
Previous to his departure last evening
Commander Booth said : "I have been
well repaid tor my visit here, although my
coming was brought by the sickness of
my wife. The enthusiasm that I find
among the officers and soldiers of the
coast is gratifying to the last degree. We
are overwhelmed wiih applications for
commissions — young men acd women
eager to commit their Jives to the prosecu
tion of the work. Instead of a great
breach and setback I think we are to wit
ness an era of great progress in the army.
"Is there any indication of Ballington
Booth's returning to his allegiance? I
cannot say as to that. Certainly the
pleading of his father must affect him.
But he seems to be going on with his
work, and we are certainly going on with
ours. We shall go ahead as though
nothing had happened so far as tne prose
cution of the work is concerned, although,
never ceasing to pray for the return of
those who have strayed."
The consul talked much in the same
strain, expressing great gratification with
the condition of the army as she found it,
and regretting that I.er health had not
permitted her to see more.
A FACTORY GIRL TALKS.
Declares That Working for a Chinese
Firm Is Preferable to Employment
in a White Factory-
One of the girls employed in the blouse
waist factory of the Chinese firm of Hue
Kai & Co., 127 Clay street, denies that girls
are paid less than the Chinese formerly at
work there, and who were replaced with
white girls when they struck for increased
She ascribes the report to the jealousy of
the owners of other factories where white
girls are employed. This is her story:
"Girls working in factories owned by
white men have been almost driven into
despair by the treatment of their em
"It is stated that in this Chinese factory
girls make but 75 cents or $1 a day. It
may be true that some new hands make
only that much, but when their week is
ended they don't have to pay back part of
their wages for the steam furnished to
run their machines nor for repairs to old,
worn-out machines, as in some of the
white factories, where girls sometimes
have to pay to learn, and where tliey are
charged 50 cents for motor power and 5
cents for two needles, so that when the
week is up the work of new hands is
virtually done for nothing for some time.
No such practice prevails in this Chinese
factory, and whatever work a girl turns
out she is paid for, and no one begrudges
her what she gets.
"It is not true, either, that Chinese keep
tally of the girls' work, for no Chinese are
allowed to mix with the white girls. As
for the Chinese bosses themselves they
might serve as examples to the white em
ployers, for they always act in a perfectly
gentlemanly way toward the girls, which
is more than one can say of the white em
ployers, who seldom show even respect
for the giris whom they employ.
"But to return to the question of wages:
girls in the Chinese factory make from $5
to fl2 a week, according to how industri
ous and expert they are. Nor is it true
that we are annoyed by the striking
PIONEER WILLIAM'S DEATH.
Buitt Knrly Ferry- Koata »nd Steamers
fur the Southern Pacific.
Benjamin Franklin Williams, the pio
neer Ehipbuilder of the Southern Pacific
Company, died at his home, 226 Michigan
street, Potrero, last night.
B. F. Williams entered the service of
the company many years ago, and con
structed most of the ferry-boats and many
of the steamers running up the river.
Nearly all of this work was done at the
slips in West Oakland. Some years ago
he moved to this City, but the greatest
number of his friends are in Oakland.
The deceased was a native of Wilkes
barre, Pa., 67 years of age. He leaves a
widow and one son, F. D. Williams. He
j will be buried to-day.
AMONG THE LABOR UNIONS
Trades Council to Again Protest
Against the Funding
The Ameiican Federation of Labor
Takes a Slap at the Politi
Several interesting matters were con
sidered last evening at a meeting of the
San Francisco Labor Council. A letter was
received from Samuel Gompers, president
of the American Federation of Labor,
We desire to inform you and your organiza
tion that the dues of the central labor unions
and of the State Federation have been reduced
to $10 each per year, payable quarterly, in
stead of $25. as formerly; and if such bodies
have a representation in the annual conven
tion of tlie American Federation of l.ubor an
additional $10 each shall be paid. This law
takes efft-ct May 1, and we would request that
all dues owed up to that date be promptly
jiaiii, so that there will be no confusion. We
nope by this reduction we will be able to
bring together a larger number of central
bodies and thus add to the power ot or
ganized labor throughout the country. • * •
It was decided to pay the annual dues —
$20— to the American Federation of Labor.
Jn another letter from Gompera it waa
stated that at trie New York convention of
the American Federation of Labor it was
voted to make special efforts to organize
the journeymen barbers throughout the
country, and the writer asked that co
operative efforts be made in the same di
rection In San Francisco.
Chairman Burns stated that it would be
out of the question in this City with the
present barbers' unions, in which nearly
all of the bosses were members, which was
prohibited in the National federation laws.
In another letter from tne same source it
was stated : "We congratulate you on so
successfully meeting the attempt to sup
plant your body and destroy the labor
movement of your City." This was a slap
at the Trades and Labor Alliance, which
attempted to affiliate with the council and
draw organized labor into politics.
Reports from the unions show that iron
work is dull. Only about half of the
Theatrical Employes' Union members are
The delegate from the Typographical
Union reported that in consequence of the
large number of typesetting machines the
number of unemployed printers is increas
ing. The printers will soon start an even
ing newspaper in the interest of labor.
The Sailors' Union delegate reported
trade temDorarily dull, as the ship-owners
were waiting for a raise in freights.
Delegate Hober called attention to the
fact that a wholesale hardware house was
about to get a large catalogue of tin
wares, and propose to get the work done !
by the Pacific Press, a non-union printing I
office in Oakland. It was decided toappoint
acommittee from the council and a commit
tee from the Typographical Union to ask
the firm to give the work to a union firm.
J. Flannigan of Anaconda, a member of
the Montana Trade and Labor Council,
was introduced, and expressed great sur
prise that there were not more delegates
present. He said that in Montana the
working-card was a success in all trades.
! Even storecle^rks belonged to unions and
were compelled to have their union cards.
Journeymen maintained the best of wages,
and trades-unionism was a success. In
several instances the unions have had
hard tights, but all were successful, as all
the men stood together.
The secretary was instructed to draw up
suitable resolutions protesting against the
passage of the funding bill to be presented
at the next meeting for indorsement by
the council. The resolution, the second
from the Council, will be forwarded to the
Pacific Coast representatives at Washing

The Sheriff in Possession
of Some Blooded
MY LORD FAILED TO PAY
A Judgment Taken by Default
Leads to a Stern Legal
HIS PROMISE WAS HIS BOND.
A Visit to a Sporting House Gels the
Noble Scion Into a Legal
Talbot Clifton— his lordship with $60,
-000 a year and an appetite for horseraces
and other things— has fallen afoul of the
law again, and as a result four blooded
horses— the remnant of his once extensive
stable— are in the hands of Sheriff Whelan
and will remain there until a little ac-
count that Collector Raver holds against
my lord is settled.
One night several months ago, during
one of his fits of jovial hilarity, Talbot
and a coterie of boon companions wan
dered up Mason street to a sporting re
sort in the 100 block in search of rest and
recreation. They apparently found it, and
all at Talbot's expense, for when morning
dawned and a string of cabs bore the party
to its lodgings the scion of nobility bad
piled up a bill of $142.
Talbot had been out with "White Hat"
McCarthy and some other horsemen dur
ing the previous evening wining and din
ing, and his purse bting somewhat de
pleted he was compelled to tell the man
ager of the house that he would pay
later. Generally with bloods of Clifton's
caliber "later" means the next night or a
week at the outside, and his word was his
bond, as in fact it always is, if he desires it
in the tenderloin. However, Talbot's in
terpretation of "later" is sometimes sev
eral months, and so it was in this case.
His creditor waited patiently and
sent one or two polite notes, but the
coin came not, and at last in despair
sent for the collector of debts sometimes
characterized in inventories as "nominal,"
and requested him to procure the long
sought money. His effort to brine Clif
ton "to the center" by means of notes and
personal calls was no more successful than
the manager's had been, and as a last re
sort suit was brought in the Justices'
