Alameda County Republicans
Listen to Enthusiastic
MANY CLUBS ON PARADE.
Major Keller's Great Effort to Retain
His Position as Piedmont
Oaklaxd Office San Francisco Call,)
90S Broadway, June 20. \
Oakland was cenuinely enthusiastic to
night. The city is not often so lively and
bright. For once there was harmony in
the Republican ranks. Had anyone pros
pected here this evening he would have
found hatchets in every vacant lot, for
iegions of these were buried by the war
ring elements that peace might prevail for
to the end that one grand shout
might ascend from this R-publican
Republicans turned out en masse to
I their appropal of the National
nnnees, and those who are not Republi
cans were on hand to see the fun. As "the
iun" was of a magnetic nature the out
siders felt their spirits rise in harmony
with those who carried torches and
spurted red lire and Roman candles into
the air, and, although they would resent
such a statement, they seemed to be as
enthusiastic as those they watched.
The Presidential campaign opened very
favorably. Old and young Republicans
from every ward marched side by side and
shouted in unison. In the parade were
men who marched in the campaigns of
thirty years ago, and they were as light of
foot and bright of eye as when they car
ried their tirst banner. Young men were
also there who will cast their first vote
this November. Dissatisfied seceders
from other political faiths were also seen
in a Republican procession for the first
time, and there were also others, but not
many, who "follow politics," and whose
faces are as familiar as their political be
liefs are doubtful.
While the parada* wa? passing along
Broadway the whole street looked like one
long line of fire. There seemed to be lit
tle cessation to the letting off of fireworks,
and the redfire wagon was at once the de
light and the awe of the little Repuolicans,
who will vote, if they live, in the next
Grand Marshal Marston Campbell and
his aid. Captain W. R. Thomas, were
mourned on lively steeds. If the Ohio
man who heads the Republican ticket can
grapple witb the great question in as mas
terly a manner as the leaders did their
horses, the dawn of the century will not
witness a repetition of "the times" of 1*96.
Then came the renter of inspiration, the
band. "The Washington Posf'and "March
ing Through Georgia" never seemed
more martial than they did to-night, ana
the effect on the strains was very marked
on the veteran members of the Army and
Navy Republican League. The old soldiers
and sailors smeiled powder in the air, and
felt as young as when they got their first
whiff thirty years aeo.
The State-renowned Republican Alli
ance acted as an escort to the league, and
they carried out their part most gallantly.
The Alliance men carried ponderous vol
canic torches, and when they blew in trie
mouthpiece each firebrand instantly be
came an active Vesuvius, and the old sol
diers and sailors were illuminated nearly
the whole line of march.
The Young Men's Republican Club fol
lowed the Alliance, and the commanding
presence of their president, J. W. Stetson,
was admired wherever a fair face was
garing from a window — and there were
thousands of them. Next came the Sons
of Veterans, who were reminiseeutly inter
esting and made a good appearance
After the Sons of Veterans came the
most prominent feature of the parade. It
was the wagon on which a few demons fed
powder to a regular Hadean lire. Not one
instant did the redlire men ceate their la
bors, and their experience with brimstone
and saltpeter ought to render them proof
against any experience with similar ma
terial in the future.
Among the ward clubs wes the Afro-
American McKiniey Club, organized a
week ago without a name, but pledged to
name itself after the St. Louis choice.
A glance at the ward clubs was interest
ing. Although there are rival Republican
organizations in every ward they all united
on the choice of the party leaders. Al
though the matter of indorsing a pound
master or a politician is valid ground for
rending in twain a ward organization the
banner of "prosperity and protection" is
too popular to quarrel under and for one
night all the hatchets were buried and Re
publicans of Alameda County were in har
The parade wound up with Keller's
Raneere. Keiler is the "Mayor of Pied
mont" and is one of the most notable men
in his district. Whether for a Fourth of
Jnly celebration or a Fabiola Fete proces
sion or a Republican whoopup, Mayor
Keiler can always be depended upon to
organize a corps of mounted rangers at a
moment's notice. Where they come from
nobody seems to know, but they always
make a good showing and their horses are
generally bedecked with the softest of
green foilage. After the parade they dis
appear and are not ween till they are asked

On the platform, among others, were W.
R. Davis, R. W. Church, A. L. Frick, H.
D. Taicott, P. B. Stratton and C. May, and
it may be said every prominent Republi
can in the county. The first speaker on
the programme was the Hon. S. G. Hil
born, wno was not present. The mention
of his name was received with cheers. F.
S. Stratton was presented and said:
"I but repeat Senator Inealls when I
state that 'This is the people's year.' At
no time in oui history since the civil war
has the power of public opinion been so
remarkably exhibited as in the movement
which culminated this week in the nom
ination of William McKinley. The move
ment toward him was a popular move
ment. It came from the masses. It gath
ered strength everywhere and swept away
all obstacles bearing great rivals and local
jealousies before it. His adversaries
united apainst him with admirable tem
per and dexterity. It was even equal in
the strength of its opposition to that
against Blame in 1876 and in 1880. But
there was a great groundswell urging the
nomination of MeKinley and one before
which politicians, combinations and even
statesmen gave way.
"From tlie beginning McKinley was the
Only candidate who was seriously regarded
by the country. Mr. Reed had "high intel
lectual powers, immense force of character
and an impressive personality. Governor
Morton had achieved a rank among lenders
that justified any aspiration, but the voice,
not only of -New England, but even of New
York, was for McKinley. And so it was
that favorite sons in many"States were
swept aside in the demand for this one
"The people have been schooled by
means of adversity; they are fatigued by
hard times; they are weary of low wages
and falling prices. The prophecies of Mr.
Cleveland and of the Democratic party
have not brought relief, and as one ol the
St. Louis correspondents wrote, 'The
farmers want the country to sell more corn
and less bonds. 1 The meeting to-night is
truly a ratification meeting, and is a rati
fication of what was done at St. Louis.
What was done at St. Louis was only a
greater ratilication of what had been done
and decided by the Union at large. There
never was a time when party fealty and
party discipline were so lax.
"The Ei.'iis of independence, of careful
consideration, show that the people are
thinking, and that mere empty associa
tions and party ties will no longer bind
the masses. A political speech can no
longer be made by mere reference to the
past. Party names do not mean as much
as they did. The independent voter is
abroad, and the man of individual convic
tions is a force in the land. Platforms
lately have been taken to mean but little,
declarations have been received as of
small weight. Republican platforms usu
ally pointed with pride to the record of
the party and viewed with alarm the acts
and indications of its adversary.
"All this has passed away. The Repub
lican party can no longer stand upon its
record alone. It must succeed, and it will
succeed, upon its promises and hopes for
tne future. The election of McKinley is
assured, not because the nomination was
founded upon impulse, nor the influence
of speech, but because from this time on
until November the American people will
give to the great issues sincere study, calm
consideration and ceaseless reflection.
"There never was a time since the aboli
tion of slavery, when the masses were so
profoundly agitated us now by a sense of
injustice, and ttie unequal distribution of
privileges and burdens, and the people in
stinctively turn for guidance to one man.
The phenomenal popularity of McKinley
must be attributed not only to himself,
but as well to the cause for which he
stands ana the ideas which he repre
G. W. Reed was the next speaker and
bespoke as follows: "As I look around
this hall and see before me this great out
pouring of the people — this spontaneous
outburst of enthusiasm for our chosen
leaders— l feel that it means something
above and beyond the ordinary course of
events. It means that the people are in
earnest this time, that the Republican
party is to receive the support of the peo
ple, and that Alameda County ifl to again
return to its proper place, the banner Re
publican county of the State. When the
people are in earnest, when they arise in
iheir might, the Nation will always be
safe, and the ritrht leaders will be placed

"Was there ever in the history of the
great Republican party such a spontaneous
uprising ot the people, such a demand for
a leader as was manifested at the greut
convention which has so wiseiy and so
well performed the duties delegated to
it by tiie people of this Republic? This is
the year of tiie people.
"Major McKinley was nominated by the
people, he was demanded by all classes of
the peopie, and he will be supported by
the patriotic people of this country in such
overwhelming numbers that the Jast four
years of Democratic misrule, mistakes,
blunders and un-American doctrines will
be stamped out of existence so completely
that the coming generations will hardly
know that such things ever existed.
"Why do the people demand the elec
tion of Major McKinley? Because he is
near and dear to every American heart.
Because he is honest and upright in all his
business dealing. Because he was nomi
nated by no clique or faction, but by the
people of this Nation. Because he is an
ideal American. Because his personal
character is sacb as to command the es

lion. S. G. Hilborn, who entered the
hall while Mr. Reed was speaking, was
then introduced, tie said : "I thanK you
■ for this coatlial reception. I have just
\ come from St. Louis, and the country is
! just alive witn enthusiasm for William
McKinley. Even was this the case in the
. country where opposition might be ex
i pected on account of some things in the
I platform. Many loyal Republicans will
i reject some of the planks in the
platform. But the majority must
. rule. McKinley has i been named

Judge Abranam Lincoln Prick, who was
i introduced by Colonel AlcElroy, said :
"The demonstration upon the streets and

abroad in Oakland as elsewhere. We now
have the result of four years of Democratic

Hon. W. R. Davis spoke next. "I am a
Republican," he said, ''because it is the
party of performance ana not promises*.
There has been no party in the history of
j man's government as this great party to
which we belong. It has come of late to
be considered that the silver question is
the most prominent question. It is, but
it is not the dominant question. If we au
thorize the free coinage of silver without
the consent of other nations we profit
nothing. W r hiie it is a clamorous ques
tion, it is not the most dominant.
"We want relief, we want confidence,
and to have this we must have protection.
What is our difficulty? It is, that we
departed in 1892 from a course that has
builded up prosperity. Some of our Demo
cratic and Populistic friends say it is an
injustice to lay out $1.'10,000, OCX) as pen
sions. Can a man oe found who would
like to see other nations take our trade?
Do we want Chinese hordes and illiterate
paupers to flood our country? No. The
uiuy of our Government is not to protect
foreign power-* but to protect American
rights upon American soil."
R. B. Carnenter made a short speech,
and a selection by the band and the glee
club brought the great meetinj; to a close.

The officer is John Irvin, who is appointed
university policeman by the Board of Re

Town Trustees of Berkeley.
Dr. J. H. C. Bonte. secretary of the Board
of Regents, this aftarnoon declared that
no auch event would be permitteo on the
university grounds. "Ours is a State
University and as such should not permit
anything that is calculated to offend the
general public," said he.
"It has been the fashion to stop all work
and everything else at the university, and
surely an innovation will not b* made for
the sake of a baseball contest. Years aeo
there were Sunday games of several kinds
on the college grounds, but the Regents
broke them all up, and it is a. long time
since anything of tiie kind has taken place.
"The university grounds are a family
park every Sunday. At this time of the
year they are thronged with visitors, who
enjoy the quietness and tha natural beau
ties of the place, and to allow a baseball

"Certainly the game will be stopped
if any attempt is made to bring it off.
Such a contest on Sunday on the grounds
of the University of California is unheard
of and will assuredly never occur."
University Policeman Irvin was in
structed this afternoon to use his powers
to put an end to the contest if it should De
begun, and to arrest the principals should
resistance be offered. The managers of
the game, however, decided to change
their plans, and the Oakland Clippers and

TIDAL CANAL PROBLEM.
Two Cities Trusting to Her
Wisdom for Practical
T£N -YEAR -OLD GRIEVANCE.
A Large District Depopulated Because
of the Existing Menace to
Oakland Office Sax Francisco Call,)
908 Broadway, June 20. f
A task that men have failed to accom
plish will probably be successfull y handled
by a woman. The task 13 the tidal-canal
problem, and the woman Is Dr. Sarah T.
Shuey, who was, last night, elected presi
dent of Oakland's Board of Health.
For many years the tidal canal, which
should be ihe great flusiier for both Oak
land and Alameda, has been a menace to
health. It has been permitted to till with
sewage, and the Government appropria
tions have been spent in deepening the
approaches to the harbor and not to dredg
ing the canal so that each tide would
carry out to sea the deposits of the two
cities^ The canal is now a menace of the
worst kind to the public health, :ind is
daily growing worse.
The people of Oakland declare that Ala
meda has created and is creating the nui
sance, and tbe people across the estuary
make a similar charge against this city.
Considerable diversity of opinion ex
ists as to the best method of remedying
the evil. Similar differences have
existed for many years. and each
year the number of residents in
th<> vicinity of the arm that cement 3 the
two cities has greatly decrease!. It is said
that altogether as many as 500 families
have been driven from the neighborhood
since the exodus commenced. Alamedans
believe that a five-foot trench which would
connect the canal with San Leandro Bay
would flush it, but others differ. Engineer
yon Schmidt of Sun Francisco, who has
investigated the matter, says that a trench
would do little or no good.
The Alameda Health Board, which for
merly maintained that the refuse from tbe
East" Oakland tanneries was washed into
the canal and caused the stench, are now
convinced that it is caused by the Frnit
vale sewer which discharges into the canal.
Experiments have been made with marked
barrels at the uoper end of the canal. The
outgoing tide floats them as far west as
the Government bridge, but the next tide
carries ihem back again. From this it
would seem that the accumulated sewage
for years has settled east of the bridge.
The question of paying (or the trench in
case it should be vug ia another matter to
be decided. Tie Alamedana say the Gov
ernment caused the nuisance and that the
Federal appropriation should be used to
abate it. Oaklanders are opposed to this
and object to tbe money intended for har
bor improvements being used for any
other purpose. Another proposition is
that the nuisance should be abated and
that each city should pay one-half the
So long as the Boards of Health of both
cities were composed entirely of men there
seemed no prospect of any intelligent
agreement being reached.
Dr. Sarah Shuey's first act as president
of the Oakland Health Board was to ap
point herself, with Drs. Lackey and BecK
with, a committee to meet the Alameda
board and reach some conclusion. They
will meet in a few days and expect to
make a practical report at the next meet

that it should be tbe subject of a special

marshes about the city as highly unsani

condemn them as nuisances and to take
the proper steps to abate them.
The Ownership of the Kureka Oil
Works Snim-ivlinl Mixed.
OAKLAND, Cal., June 20.— The efforts
of J. J. Hiegins to collect a debt from the
Eureka Oil Works at West Berkeley has
complicated the ownership of the institu
tion until it will take the courts to un
tangle affairs. It was tbe property of
Tiedeman it Cotton, but when Higgins
attached the works to secure a claim of
$2:300 Tiedeman transferred his nail-inter
est to Higg.ns.
Cotton did not like this arrangement,
and Higgins took out a $4000 attachment
against Cotton's interest, but when the
Sheriff attempted to make the levy he
was told that Cotton had transferred his
interest to W. C Cotton. Higgins charges
this transfer was fraudulent and will test
the matter in court.

yOB Broadway, June 20. )"
There is an ambulance in Oakland. This
seems a very commonplace remark, but
had it been uttered two days ago it would
have been an untruth.
Although Oakland has always been con
sidered a philanthropic city, and although
being a railroad terminus the number of
injured people brought is enormous, yet
the clumsy patrol wagon driven at break
neck speed has hitherto been the only
means of conveying suffering humanity to
a hospital. For many years the sickening
sight has been witnessed at the depots of
mutilated men and women groaning with
pain beine transferred from the train to
the patrol wagon.
This, however, is at an end. The fol
lowing letter was received by Mrs. John

SHOTS IN THE DARKNESS
Alfred Saxton Has No Idea Who
It Was That Fired a
Pistol at Him.

A Chima of Bells That Will
Play "America "
ALAMEDA, Cat.., June 20.— The mys
tery surrounding the attempt to rob Al
fred Saxton, night receiver at the Ala
meda, Oakland and Piedmont Electric
Railway power-house on Webster street,
last night still remains unexplained. Sax
ton, when interviewed oy the police and
others, said his attention was first at
tracted from his accounts by a slight
coughing of some one at tbe receiving
window. There he saw a hand holding a
revolver pointed toward him. He says he
did not see the party who held the
He made a dash for his own pistol,
which hung near tne window, but before
he reached it his opponent tired and he
felt the bullet whiz past his head. Saxton
then fired twice through the window where
the assassin stood and turning out the light
rushed to the door and sent another bullet
into the darKness.
The Alameda police were notified at
once and they in turn called up me Oak
land police office, which dispatched two
men to Webster-street bridge. They saw
nothing of a man, and Police Officer
Brown, who was on daty on Webster
street and hurried in the direction of the
power-house, when he heard the shots,
saw no one.
It is only three months ago since over
$300 disappeared between the hours of
2 and five o'clock in the morning. The re
ceiver's services were dispensed with and
Alfred Saxton was placed in charge. Last
night, if robbery were the motive, the re
ceipts would have been confined to the
Chimes for the City Hall.
ALAMEDA, Cal., June 20.— When the
City Hall was finished Ben F. Lamborn,
City Clerk, got the idea that to render it
thoroughly complete a chime of bella
should be installed in the hall tower. Ha
worked on the project and got subscrip
tions to the amount of $200. He has now
enlisted in the scheme the sympathies of
the ladies who made the floral fete such a
success a month ago. They are to give an
entertainment and dramatic performance
in the near future for this object.

Popularizing the Library.
ALAMEDA, Cal., June 20.— Librarian

shelves has done much to popularize the
institution. The latest scheme which the

a second period of fourteen days by the

country books will be sent to the party by
express, the borrower, of course, paying
