MARTIN KELLY'S BAD BLUFF.
He Asked for a Second Warrant for
tbe Ballots and Was Sat Down
Upon Very Rudely.
The primary election of the Republican
party passed off quietly in this City yester
day afternoon, there being but one oppo
sition ticket, and that in the Thirty-sixth
Assembly District, engineered by Jack
Mr. McCarthy did not pan out a good
engineer. He had been given two dele
gates to represent his uninteresting inter
ests, but Mr. McCarthy's ambition soared
higher. He wanted to crow on the top
roost and so he put up an opposition
ticket and last night there was nothing
left of him but the tail feathers.
There were many good men on his
ticket, but the fact that ambitious Jack
flew the track had a tendency to.dump
them into that political purgatory tfnown
as "the soup." Like the man who visited
the Bowery with more money than brains,
they will never go there any more.
The following was the McCarthy ticket:
Jack McCarthy. W. H. Murphy. J. Car
roll, Charles White, i±. G. Foster, L. Sav
ace, Charles Duveneck, F. Crystal, James
Woods, J. Lorenz, H. Cieary, Robert
Thorp, Joseph Sheridan and C. H. Wedge
Club 1 in that district cast 1326
votes; Club 2 360 votes. In Club 1 the
reeular ticlcet received 726 votes and Mr.
McCarthy's ticket received 6. In Club 2,
McCarthy's stronghold, he received 258
votes to the regular's 102.
In the Fortieth District there occurred a
stirring incident. A quiet-iooking man
had cast his ballot for the regular ticket,
and had announced that fact rather con
spicuously in David Short's saloon, where
upon a stout man with a thick neck and v
red face reproved him. The voter smote
him on the terminal glare of his rubescent
proboscis and sat him bleeding on the
A friend stepped up and indignantly
protested. He received the blow in the
! right eye and sat down with an uphol
The third man approached the voter
and declared that such conduct was a
blank dashed shame. He was the re
cipient, as the society reporter would say,
in the left eye of the'fist of the voter, and
he broke a cuspidor with his left clavicle.
Then approached the third man. He
j deprecated war and advised arbitration.
! Just then a warclub made up of flesh and
i knuckles smote him on the kisser, and he
| fell raiher uneracelully, splitting the seat
of a chair with his chin.
The whole affair being politics, no ar
re*ta were made.
Early in the evening two emissaries of
Martin Kelly, boofiler and would-be boss,
appeared before Judge Campbell and de
manded a search-warrant for the ballots.
No reason beine given for this unusual
and illegal request, the Judge denied the

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE.
Dedicatory Services Held lv St. Joseph's
Church Last Night.
St. Joseph's Church, on Tenth street,
near Howard, was filled from the doors to
the altar last evening. The occasion was
the mission given by the FLedemptorist
fathers of St. Louis, Father O'Shea and
The mission began a week ago and will
last turee weeks longer. The first week,
devoted to married women, will end at 3
o'clock to-day. The second week, for
young ladies exclusively, begins at 10
o'clock this morning. The third week is
for the married men, and the last week
for the single men.
Last evening Father Mullane addressed
the married women, and in his discourse
pointed out to them their duties as
mothers and wives. He spoke with great

mind and body that afflict the women of
modern times and, bavins suffered, can
feel for those who are in trouble.
Those who are In distress can and should
appeal to the Virgin who will intercede

Justice Gro?z nger Gives a Money*
Lender an Oral Casti
Cbarles Ebn's Reward for Charging
io Per Cent a Month on
A sad story was told in Justice
Groezinger's court yesterday, and the tell
ing resulted in Charles Elm, a money
lender, being thoroughly "roasted" by
The defendant is Mrs. Rose Madero,
who, with her hve children, lives at 12^6
Green street. According to the testimony
one of her children fell sick several
months ago, and beinc without funds to
purchase the medicines and delicacies
needed (or the little one, she decided to
borrow money on her scanty furniture
and sent for Ehn.
The money-lender came, and after listen
ing to her sad tale, in which she related
the story of her dyine babe and of her
great need, he consented to loan her $50 if
she would give l.im a note secured by a
chattel mortgage. Mrs. Madero accom
panied him to a notary, and there, not be
ine able to read or write, affixed herX
mark to a note in which she agreed to pay
10 per cent a mouth for the use of $50 for
the also had to pay the notary's fees for
making out the mortgage and note. Ehn
told her that all she must do was to pay
$5 i>er month, which she supposed would
pay interest and principal, her knowledge
of ligures being very limited.
The next day her baby died.
Wiih the assistance of one of her little
girls, who earns 40 cents a day in a factory,
she managed to pay $40 in $5 driblets, and
then to her astonishment was served
with the papers in a suit to foreclose the
mortgage, J. J. Kauer being the assignee
of the claim.
When the case came up yesterday the
attorney for the defendant begged for a
continuance often days stating that his
client had managed to borrow $35 and
would pay that down and the balance
within the time specified or allow the
furniture to go without further protest.
Ebn entered a vigorous protest, but was
brought to a sudden halt by the Justice,
who had been looking over the papers.
"This is simply an outrage and one
that I uhall Lot allow to go unnoticed,''
he said. "It aDpears from this complaint
that the assignor here Ehn charged this
poor woman 10 per cent per month for the
loan of $50 and that he now, alter receiv
ing $40 of his claim, de&irea to take her
few little belongings from her.
"It is- simply barbarous and it Is the
greatest shame that the law does not pro
vide a severe penalty for such proceed
ings. It is worse than robbery.
"I shall give Mr 3. Madera' thirty days'
time instead of the ten as asked by her
attorney and no interest will be allowed
either. Any jury in the land would have
given her a verdict, but under the circum
stances I am sorry to say I cannot."

AT THE FAIR
Pioneer Firemen Give an
GERMAN NIGHT COMING.
How a Quiet Flirtation Was
Suddenly Brought to a
A GRAND ELECTRICAL DISPLAY
The Dairymen's Exhibit Attracting
Much Attention, Especially
the B g Cheese.
At no time since the Home Products
Exposition at the Pavilion opened the
doors to the public has there been such a
crowd as there was last evening. The
principal attraction was the exhibition
drill of the Veteran Firemen, who turned
out in full force to Bhow the people of to
day how they extinguished fires with the
old band-machine "Young America" in
years long gone.
The committee of arrangements con
sisted of the following veterans:
President Joseph F. Marshal, First Vice-Pres
ident Sleptien Bonner, Second Vice-President
George Barrilson, Third Vice-President \V. H.
Miller, Financial Secretary Gustav Poulmao,
Recording Secretary James Pennycoke, Treas
urer William Fahrenberg, Directors W. Rau
binger, Henry N. Kohn, Thomas Cornell. Al
Harris, Trustees F. A. Will, R. Harold and H.
On Monday evening the Germans will
hold forth, the occasion beine known as
German night. Ail the German singing
societies in the City will be present, and
in tne grand choruses there will be 450
voices. Professor Franz Fischer will offi
ciate as leader. A special programme of
music has been rtrepared.
A quiet little flirtation that had been in
progress at one of the perfumery booths
was rudely spoiled yesterday afternoon
by the unexpected arrival of the ag
grieved wife on the scene. A well-to-do
appearing man, not very old and not very
young, hail been spending much time at a
booth in which was a young woman with
blue eyes and STrort blonde, curly hair.
He was leaning with a bicycle crook in
his back over the counter yesterday talk
ing to the charmer when the whack of an
umbrella acres* his spinal column caused
him to stand erect very suddenly. He
confronted a stoutly built, determined
looking woman who said: "So, sir; this is
the \? iy you worry your life away over
your business affair?, is it?"
The man looked desperately fooJish and
said: "Great Scott, Mary, don't make a
scene here. Let us go liome."
Thereis another small kick among some
of the exhibitors, and the trouble will
probably find its way into the Health De
partment. One of the local candy-dealers
has a concession to make and sell candy.
The discovery has been made that large
numbers of barrels marked "glucose,"
have been taken into the Pavilion und
made into candy.
The total vote to date on the most pop
nlar exhibit is as follows:
Johnsorj Locke Mercantile Company. 2390;
Joshua Hcinly Machine Works, "030; Crown
Flour Company, 1339; Rix Compressed Air
Mechine Company, 958; Tillmnnn & Bendel,

Light, heat and power, all the product
of electricity, are shown to excellent ad
vantage in the display of the Edison Light
and Power Company at the fair. A num
ber of novelties are introduced in tha ex
hibit, and the visitors to the fair from day
to day rind much that is interesting and
instructive in the company's display. The
one feature that perhaps attracts the
greatest attention and elicits the most
comment is the methods shown for utiliz
ing electric power for cooking and heat
ing puiposes. Advances are made *o
rapidly in all branches of electrical science
that it will probably not be a very gre:it
while before electricity will be used for
cooking and heating purposes to the same
extent that gas is at present, and ulti
mately it may displaco all manner of fuel.
It is only a* question of cost, and each
year sees new inventions introduced that
keep reducing the cost of producing elec
tric energy. The greatest uses to which
electricity has been successfully applied
thus far are in the production of light and
power, and the Edison Light and Power
Company has a plant that enables it
to furnish to the residents of San Fran
cisco ail the eiectric energy that may be
required for any purpose. Electricity is
being utilized for power purposes more
and more each your, and the results are in
every instance extremely satisfactory. It
can be furnished in any quantity desired,
from one horsepower upward. It is
cheaper than steam power and is also
much safer, and it is these two very im
portant factois that have been chiefly
responsible for the adoption in this City
to such a large extent of electricity for
At to the use of electricity for light
ing purposes comment is unnecessary, for
people are well aware of the many novel
as well as useful advantages that elec
tricity possesses over all known forms of
illumination. For cooking purposes elec
tricity furnishes the means for fitting up
an ideal kitchen. There is entire a Dsence
of dirt or nmell. It can be turned off when
not in use, and as soon as the current is
turned on an intense heat is the instan
taneous result. It has everything to com
mend it, and the display at the fair will
perhaps be the means of causing many
people in this City to see the advantages
to be gained by the use of electricity for
cooking, a circumstance which would na
turally result in the installation of numer
ous eJectric kitchens.
Many visitors to the fair are probably
not aware that the display ma.le by th«
Dairymen's Union of California is repre
sentative of one of the foremost industries
not alone of this State, but of the "United
States. The value of the dairy products
of the country each year are exceeued only
by the grain products, and therefore this
display is deserving of the greatest atten
tion. It is a magnificent exposition of
California's extensive dairy interests, and
in the display every county in the State is
represented. It is by far the finest and
most complete exhibit of the kind ever
made on tne coast, with the exception of
the display made by this same association
at the Midwinter Fair, where they received
the highest and special awards*on butter
and cheese. California creamery butter
has a reputation for excellence that is too
well established to require special men
tion. In the production of cheese Califor
nia now ranks with any of the Eastern
States, and it is due largely to the efforts
of the Dairymen's Union that such is the
Great quantities of cheese are shown in
the disulay, and there is not a pound in
the entire lot that is not equal to the best
ever imported from the East. The center
of attraction of the exhibit ia a manimotn
cheese weighing 658 pounds. It is a j u u.
cream, made by the Cheddar process.
This it, a particularly delicious variety and
about all of this kind that is sold in this
market at present comes, from the East.
Tiie suciesa oi the Dairymen's Union in
the manufacture of this brand will enabie
them to supply the local demand and
thereby add materially to California's in
dustries. This display merits careful con
sideration on the part of visitors when
balloting for the best exhibit.
The Police to Be .Employed in Running
Down Some Very Clever
For ten days past tne police have been
looking for three shoplifters who, it ap
pears, have managed to get away with
several hundred dollars' worth of goods.
Just how the scheme is worked is not
definitely explained, but that they have
worked successfully is admitted by the
parties mostly interested.
Nearly two weeks ago three women vis
ited the store of Davis Broa. and manaeed
to walk away with several articles of con
siderable value. They then turned their
attention to Hale Bros, and stole some
articles. Two or three times the trick
was turned, and then the proprietors
began to cast about for the guilty par
In the meantime other stores reported
similar losses, and the Retail Merchants'
Association held an indignation meeting.
It was determined to ask Chief Crowley to
appoint two special officers to visit the
various retail stores during each day, the
belief being that in this way the swind
lers would eventually be brought to jus
tice. The following gentlemen were
named as a committee to lay the matter
•before the Police Department : S. M. Levy,
J. 11. Martin, Samuel Weller and Leon
No special officers for the services re
quired have as yet been appointed by the
Police Department. In the meantime the
three mysterious women continue to get
in their work. It is said that during the
last few days they have visited several
K«arny-street establishments, securing
plunder of no little value. They work
singly and in pairs, but never as a trio.
Only once have they been seen together,
and that was at Hale Bros. So clever is
their work, however, that no one has as
yet been able to catch them in the act of

Delivers the Violent
POLICE COURT SCENE.

When the Assault Was
FLOOD PLACED UNDEE ARREST
Judge Campball Fined Him $100 for
Contempt aad Seat Him to Jail
for TwentvFour Eours-
Noah F. Flood, an attorney in the Par
rott building, created a scene in Judge
Campbell's court yesterday morning re
sulting in a fine of $100 being imposed
upon him and one daj-'s iniprisonm'ent in
the County Jail for contempt of court.
The case of Stephen Otis, stockbroker,
charged with felony embezzlement by
Mrs. Annie McManus, was being heard.
Attorney John J. Coffey represented Mrs.
McManus and he was on his feet address
ing the court when Flood came in. Flood
walked along till he reached where Mr.
Otis was seated. He whispered something
in Mr. Otis' ear nnd the stockbroker
pushed him away. Flood then addressed
the cr>urt, saying: "There's going to be a
knockout in this case."
The Judge thinking that he might have
been called into the case and imagining
that Flood meant to spring a motion to
brine the matter to a sudden close waited
lor Flood to proceed.
Coffey bad wheeled around and was
looking at Flood in a surprised way when
Flood shot out his right fist and struck
Coffey a violent blow in the face, which
staggered him and soon raised a lump
around his rignt eye.
A sxene of wild confusion enstred, but
the Judge promptly restored order. Flood,
who had evidently been drinking, realized
that he bad made a mistake and did not
attempt to repeat the assault.
"I will fine you $100 for contempt of
court," said the Judge to Flood, "and
order that you be imprisoned in the
County Jail for twenty-lour hours. Your
conduct is disgraceful. Take him away."
Policeman Coughlin and Deputy Bailiff ,
Harris grabbed hold of Flood and he
struggled fiercely to get away from them. '
In the struggle Flood was thrown to the
floor. He was jacked up and escorted out-
Bid* the courtroom, where Poiiceman
Fleming held him till Couehlin got his
hat. Flood tried to get back into thn
courtroom and Fleming had all he could
do to restrain him.
All the way to the City Prison Flood !
was abusive in his languace to Coußhlin,
and in prison he struck at him twice
while being searched, but Coughlin evaded
After Fiood had left the courtroom Cof
fey apologized to the court for beinpr an
innocent party to such a disgraceful scene.
Out of respect to the court he did not
return the blow, but he was determined to
make Flood suffer for the indignity.
