ONLY A LITTLE
Oakland's Republican Pri
maries Fail to Shed
FRED STRATTON AHEAD
The Superior Judgeship in Doubt,
Though Hall Is Thought
to Be Sale.
LEAVITT FOR THE ASSEMBLY.
Twenty-Nine Anti-Perkins Delegai
Will Be Sent to the Forthcoming
Convention — Rumors.
Oakland Office San Fkancipco Call,)
908 Broadway, Sept. 19. f
The Republican primaries were held
throughout the county this afternoon and
evening, and the situation is only a little
less complex than it was before.
Fred S. Stratton will go into Monday's
convention with every delegate from the
Twenty-seventh Senatorial District. His
opponent, Dr. Derrick, did not win in a
The coulest for Superior Judjre is still
in doubt. S. P. Hall will certainly have
more than enough votes to nominate on
the first ballot, but the other nomina
tion is in doubt.
It has been generally thought that Judge
Greene's strength is as great as that of
Hall, but this was denied to-night by
some of Hall's most intimate friends. In
fact, they openly say that Hall's vote
would have been even larger had so much
not been made of the "Hall-Greene"
G. W. Langan has carried every dele
gate in the out3ide townships except six
in Eden, which go to Greene. W. L. Hill
has been the running mate of Langan so
far asthe judiciary contest goes, and it is
generally considered that alter Hall the
chances are for Langan, Greene, Hill and
Allen, in the order named.
The managers of tbe party say that no
other names than those mentioned will
go before the convention. Allen's strength
is the most difficult of the many to esti
mate. In the First Ward the only place
where he had a ticket of his own he car
ried out every delegate.
F. W. Leavitt v.ill certainly be nomi
nated for the Assembly from the Forty
eighth Assembly District, as his ticket
carried tiie Fourth and Sixth wards with
a large majority.
He is absolutely unpledged on the Sena
torial question, and last night Chairman
Mau;aie:i oi the County Committee stated
that a determined fight would be made
against Perkins in the Sixth and Fourth
The fi^ht was male and won, and as tbe
Fourth Ward is Senator Denison's it is
certain that his recent remarks about
Perkins were not idle. These two wards
will send twenty-nine delegates to the
convention, and as they are all anti-Per
kins his indorsement for United States
Senator will not be unanimous and will
not be voted upon until there has been i
heated debate, as several delegates will
take advantage of the opportunity to ex
press their feelings regarding the Hilborn-
Nearly all the other Assembly Districts
are in doubt. H. XV. Taylor oi Berkeley
has the most apparent strength in his dis
trict, aiid Ciark of Alvarado has also a
fair hold on the delegates. The other dis
tricts cannot be guessed intelligently.
No one is absolutely certain of a nomi
nation for Supervisor, although it is cer
tain that Baily of Livermore will not suc
ceed himself, as he lo^t every delegate in
his own township. Mitchell of the First
District has several delegates, but will
have a hard light, as Pelouze has an
nounced that he will run independent.
The other district is in doubt.
A WOMAN SNIPE-SHOOTER
She Goes About the Streets of
Followed by a Crowd of Curious Men
and Beys— lnteresting News
BERKELEY, Cal., Sept. 19.-The unl
versity town is possessed of a freak in the
person of a female "snipe-shooter." She
has been going about the streets for the
last few days gathering up all tbe cigarette
"snipes" and cigar stubs that she caught
sight of. Already the female tobacco
scavenger has picked up enough castaway
"snipes" from the Berkeley gutters to
This WcII-Dressed "Woman Has
Created a Sensation in Berkeley
fey Going: Around the Streets and
Picking Up the Butts of Half-
Smoked Cigars, Ggarettes, etc
Keep a small sized cigarette factory busy
for a week. This "snipe-shooter" is a
well-dressed woman, about 45 years of age,
and is supposed to hail from San Fran
cisco. From her appearance one would
not have the least suspicion that she was
engaged in the "sniping" business, but
en the other hand would rather take her
for a prosperous forewoman of a shift fac
tory, or head ironer in a modern laundry.
At her present occupation she is cer
tainly an adept. The system under which
she carries on tier business is incieod
unique. Walking along the sidewalk like
any other vedes'rian, but close to tho
gutter, however, she first "spots" her
sought-for "snipe." Passing it by at first,
the suddenly wheels about and drops a
newsjapjr, which she always carries, on
top ot tlie "snipe. " Ostensibly stooping
to pick up th^ paper, si;e secures both pa
per and cigar sinmp. When no one is
looking she slips her "hnd'' into a large
pocket sewed on the inside ot a long, >o >^c
shoulder-cape. Proceeding along until
another "butt" has been found themethod
of getting it into her bag is repeated.
To-day she worked the di>trict around
Berkeley station and Dwight way, and
then took the streetcar for more extensive
fields In Oakland.
The unusual spectacle of a woman gath
ering cigar stubs caused quite a flurry of
excitement on the streets. The peculiar
smoothness with which she conducted her
operations exciteJ much interest, and be
fore siie haii been at v,-ork for ten minutes
she had following after her a crowd of ten
or more curious men and boys.
The I'riiuaries in Berkeley.
BERKELEY, Cal., Sept. 19.— At the
primary tins anernoon the double-headed
"Stratum and Hill" ticket carried the day
by a ratio of alutost three to one, having
received 811 votes, while only 287 were
cast for the "Hill" ticket. Following was
the vote by precincts: Precinct No- 1,
North Berkeley, Stratton 128, Hill 36; No.
2, West Berkeley, Stratton 200, Hill 85;
No. 3, East Berkeley. Stratton 115, Hill 61 ;
No. 4, Divight way, Stratton 136, Hiil 46;
No. 5, Ashby avenue, Stratton 85, Hill
20; No. 6, Lorin, fciratton 119, Hill TJ.
Total straight votes cast, 1098.
Comparatively little scratching was
done on either ticket. The general senti
ment has been so strong of late in Strat
tqn's favor, because of his having pledged
himself to work vigorously for the inter
ests of the university, tnat his choice for
the senatorsliiu among tbe citizens of the
college town was a foregone conclusion.
Examinations in August.
BERKELEY. Cal., Sept. 19.— Recorder
Button of the Slate University has posted
a bulletin announcing that all entrance
examinations to the university, hereaf er,
will be held in August. This is a decided
innovation, ns heretofore two examina
tions were offered — ono in May and the
other in August.
Under tue old system students were al
lowed to divide their examinations be
tween these t"«o periods, while under the
new law all the "exes" must be taken at
the same time.

BERKELEY, Cal., Sept. 19.— A com
plete register of th 2 ciass of 1900 has been
published by the university press, with

mitted this year 326 are regular freshmen,
71 are limned and 84 are special students.

903 Broadway, Sept. 19. >
The Democrats, Populists and silver
men heid a mass-meeting at the Taber
nacle to-night. The hall was pretty well
filled with an audience which had gath
ered to hear Senator S. M. White deliver
an address. It is the first meeting held
by the united Bryan forces since bis nom

Mr. White concluded his speech by out

The Populist County Convention, held
to-day, was very different from that of a

elected to the State Convention. Then

Adoa A. Denison was chairman of the
former convention and carried everything
before him; to-day the convention would
have nothing of its lornier chairman, and
when Denison tried to speak in support of
a minority report on credentials he was
actually invited to sit down, while many
shouted, "Gag him!" It was a great fall
in a few short mouths, but A. A. Brptz
was once more in control and Danison's
prestige had endel.
The convention met at 9 o'clock, and
owing to the number of orators who in
sisted on being heard no nominations bad
been made at 5 p. it. Every little debat
able point was made the subject of argu
ment, and although the "middle-of-the
road" men could not be deprived of their
three-minutes' speeches their talking was
all in vain, for the "long-hairs" who a few
short weeks ago bowled themselves
hoarse from the City Hall forum against
fusion had changed their minds and had
everything their own way. But the short
en<iers talked just the same.
Green Majors of Alameda was elected
etiairman ana spoke briefly about eternal
vigilance, freedom and usury.
Judge Gibson helped to entertain the
delegates while tue committee on creden
tials was prepanug its report. Referring
to fusion he said: '-I went into the Popu
list party because I was converted. I was
in favor of the nomination of Mr. Bryan,
not the indorsement, because I believe he
is more of a Populist than a Democrat ;
because I believe him to be a sincere man.

part of our ticket ? I am in lavor, therefore,
of joining with the Democrats at this
time and securing a portion of the local
"in order to do this some will probably
be disappointed, but the Populists have- to
yield something. Do you not think that
it would be a good thing for the Populist
party to have even two members of the
party in tlie Board of Supervisors? The
Populists have an opportunity to elect
three Supervisors, who will Bupport our
Populist Assessor, Dalton."
M th. Dr. Kellogg- Lane made some timely
remarks about woman's suffrage, and
after appointing a committee on resolu
tions the delegates went to lunch.
When the afternoon session opened the
friction commenced. Ttie credentials com
mittee reported in favor of not permitting
any cffk-e-hol'ier to sit as a delegate.
There was a minority report against dis
qaaliflcation because of ofh'ce-hold'ng, and
a heated debate lolioweti. A. A. Denison
was speaking, and had used his time,
when some one proposed be be given
three minutes more. Ten minutes were
wasted in debate, and Denison was de
feated in his aspiration.
Charles White, ton of the Sheriff, said
it was veiy apparent the report was aimed
at him and said it was absurd, as unaer

Oakland Office San Francisco Call,)
908 Broadway, Sept. 19. j
The City Council has gone on record in
the tidal canal matter. Several months
ago they were induced to sign a memorial
to the War Department asking that the
tidal canal at the Alameda end of the es
tuary be constructed first. They thought
no more of the matter until they heard
some weeks later that there was a conflict
at Washington between the petitions to
which were appended the names of the
Oakland Ciiy Council.
An investigation was made, and it was
discovered that they had signed the sec
ond petition, believing that it was along
tbe same lines as the first. They found
out their mistake and at once did all they
could to rectify it. The result was a pro
cession of petition-bearers bound for
Washington that completely upset the
calculations of the War Department.
Another communication was sent re
cently from the Alameda Board of Trus
tees, and so that it should not score a
point ahead of Oakland the City Council
at its last meeting passed a resolution de
claring that it believes the best interests
of this city will be served by completing
the Oakland end of the barbor first.
A copy of the resolution was forwarded
to the War Department to-day, making
one more document to the large library
of correspondence on the subject that is
now with the War Department.
