SAN JOSE. Cal., Oct. 9.— Hon. F. X.
Schoonmaker, Congressman for New
Jersey, addressed tv.o large audiences In
this city to-day. On the grounds of the
Hotel Vendome this afternoon he deliv
ered a forcible address illustrating the fal
lacy of the free-coinage of silver doctrine;
and this evening, at the pavilion, he de>
livered au exhaustive argument in favor
of a protective tariff.
In regard to the silver question, he said
the Democratic party in annuling the reci
procity laW of Blame had destroyed the
only hope by which this country could
force foreign nations into an international
acreement for the free coinage of silver.
The election of McKinley, he said, would
restore this law and enable the United
States to say to foreign countries that if
they failed to sign an international agree
ment tbis country would fail to have com
mercial relations with them.

"In preparing these certificates I have
endeavored to act fairly and impartially
toward all, without the slightest tinge of
party feeling, believing that if the

under the law it is far better
to have it fully settled by the
courts in order that no voter be misled in
casting his ballot, and I believe that I will
be upheld in this statement by all those
members of the Democratic State
Central Committee who have met
with me on the question. I have
waited as requested by the latter
until the last moment required by law,
according to the opinion rendered by the
Attorney-General, oefore mailing my cer
tificates to the various County Clerks.
I would also state that I have never
been requested by the leaders of
either the Democratic or the Populist
parties to group their Presidential electors
under a combined party heading, nor were
my intentions in the matter inquired into
by Chairman Alford until several days
after the certificates had been filed in my

ORANGE, Cal., Oct, 9.— Hon. W. P.
Stradley of San Francisco addressed a
silver meeting here last night. He said:
"Why are the mills closed? Is it not be
cause there is a lack of demand for their
products? This lack of demand is caused
by the fact that for years past producers
in the South and West have been raising
croDs at an absolute loss. If we want to
open factories we should commence at the
bottom and make more money and thus
stimulate the demand. We will open the
factories by first opening the mints."

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1869.
Colonel W. W. Likens Is
Missing From the
Left a Eill of Sale for His
Office Furniture to a
HIS WHEREABOUTS UNKNOWN.
Had Bjen Threatened With Criminal
Prosecution by an Insurance
TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 9.— Colonel W.
W. Likens, a prominent lawyer of this
city, who came to Tacoma eight years
ago, mysteriously disappeared last Tues
day, leaving a note in his office stating
that he had gone to Seattle. He also left
a bill of sale of the office furniture to a
friend who had gone on his bond to the
State Insurance Company of Oregon.
Likens recently received several thousand
dollars from the insurance company to
satisfy a judgment recently entered
against it in this county, and the com
pany and other creditors have been de
manding a settlement, while Likens has
been sparring for time to avoid a threat
ened criminal prosecution.
Between 1871 and 1875 Likens was a
prominent lawyer in Mineral Point, Wis.,
being associated with ex-Congressman
Amasa Cobb, afterward Justice of the
Supreme Court of Nebraska. Likens in
1874 got into trouble with some of his
clients at Mineral Point, who were mem
bers of the Masonic fraternity, and the re
salt was that he, a thirty-second degree
Mason, was expelled from the order.
Likens then drifted to Colorado, where
he served four years in the penitentiary at
Canyon City for forgery. By those who
knew of the circumstances, it is said he
was a "fighting prohibitionist" and was
"railroaded" into the penitentiary by
saloon men. He refused to ask for a new
trial or a pardon, but the warden of the
penitentiary declined to lock him up.
Likens was taken into the penitentiary
as a boarder, where he continued to prac
tice Jaw until his time was served.
Judge Stallcup of the Superior Court in
Tacotna knew Likens well in Colorado,
and says of his prison experience: "That
scrape was aa unfortunate affair. Likens
was strong willed and would not allow
anything to be done for him. The Su
preme Court refused to debar him and his
name stands on the roll to-day."
Likens was a law partner of Judge
Amasa Cobb in Mineral Point When he
first came to Tacoma he made from
$10,000 to $40,000 a year, all of which went
into disastrous real estate speculations.
When he It- ft Denver his wife was matron
of the State Reform School for Girls. At
the time of tne accession of Governor
Waite Mrs. Likens' head fell into the
basket, along with three other Republican
office- holders. IX is said Mrs. Likens has
recently secured a divorce.
Likens was a member of the Grand
Army, though not prominent in the or
ganization. He enlisted as a private in
the Seventh Wisconsin Volunteers, and
before he was 18 years of age was captain
of a company. He was soon promoted
and for the greater part of the service was
colonel of a Wisconsin regiment and
fought in many of the battles of the cam
paigns in Tennessee and Mississippi, lie
was always prominent', in political gather
ings in this county and State and this
year was an adviser of the silver Republi
cans in the movement toward State tusion
and was disappointed in not receiving a
nomination ior State office at the fusion

SAN RAFAEL'S BOULEVARD.
Governor Budd and Party Inspect the Re-
cently Constructed Highway to
SAN RAFAEL, Cal., Oct. 9.— Governor
Budd, accompanied by a party of gentle
men to-day, in an inspection of the drive
way known as the San Rafael andTiburon
boulevard. Prison Director Wilkins, who
has done a great deal to promote the en
terprise, was major domo of the party,
which included, beside the Governor,
Prison Directors Hayes and Fitzgerald,
Warden Haley, A. W. Foster, Captain
Ellis, Supervisors Burbank, Scown and
Gardner, Editors Pryor and Barstow,
District Attorney Martinelli, Auditor Ben
son, ex-Sheriff Tunstead and others.
The work has been done by prison
labor, the Legislature having passed a law
to authorize it, under special conditions,
and without which it would have been
impossible to secure this splendid high
way for many years. Several gangs of
these laborers were passed on the way, en
gaged in constructing two or three links,
or places not completed wnen the main
work was done. The finished part of the
road extends from Green brae station
northward nearly to a point opposite
Schuetzen Park, where the city has taken
up the work, and will continue It to Irwin
street, at the head of which is the en
trance to the Hotel Rafael.
Governor Budd and the directors were
highly pleased with the work done. The
grade over the hills is very light— about 6
per cent. The road is cut along the side
of the bills and macadamized, and makes
a magnificent drive, commanding pano
ramas of splendid scenery cf the bay and
opposite coast. When completed to
Tiburon, fourteen miles, it will afford one
of the most inviting drives and bicycle
courses in the State.

Believed to Have Planned the Killing
to Secure Money Belonging to
SUISUN, Cal., Oct. 9.— Daniel H. Wil
son, a well-to-do Suisun Valley orcbardist,
was assassinated to-night at his ranch.
The crime was a cowardly one, the rancher
being shot down on the threshold of his

ceived at 9 o'clock from the Hatch ranch
by telephone. Two women who* lived at
the Wilson residence ran to the Hatch
residence, about a half mile distant, and
gave the alarm soon after the murder.
They said Mr. Wilson responded to a
knock at the door at about 8 o'clock, and
was shot down as he stepped outside. But
one shot was fired.
The murdered man was in Suisun late

received some money, amounting to sev
eral hundred dollars, for his almond crop.

home, and the theory is advanced that
robbery was the motive for the murder.

ments from Shareholder*.
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Oct. 9.— The Su
preme Court has affirmed the decision of
the lower court in the case of the Ven
tura and Ojai Valley Railway Company,
respondent, vs. J. S. Collins, a banker of
The defendant bought twenty shares of
stock of the company at the price of
$2000. He paid several assessments, ag
gregating $600, but refused to pay one
called June 6. 1895, of which his propor
tion was $800, and the company brought
suit to enforce payment.
The defendant's demurrer having been
overruled and he declining to answer,
judgments went against him for $800.
The Supreme Court, in the opinion re
ceived this morninc, sees no reason for
overturning the decision.
The decision is far-reaching and has a
very important bearing respecting cor
porate powers to collect assessments on
shares in a corporation wherein, as in the
present case, the shareholders are respon

Director* Want lan Appropriation of
9401,000 for Two tears.
STOCKTON, Cal., Oct. 9.— The directors
of the State asylum here to-day re-elected
Superintendent Asa Clark to ] serve for, the
ensuing four years. The chief , business
transacted , was the framing of ' the ' bi
ennial report to Governor Budd.
This caused considerable discussion, as
the original draft of the report asked for a
general appropriation of $440,000 for the
maintenance : during i the • next two fiscal
years of 1700 patients. :
: This was vigorously opposed by Di
rector J. D. McDougald of Stockton, who
claimed that the instituation could be run
for much less money, as shown by the ex
penditures of the past year, which are
nearly $10,000 below the appropriation.
He argued that even 1700 patients could
be supported for very little more money
in view of the many improvements made
within the past year for caring for patients.
Directors McDonald and Steffans came to
his way of thinking, and the request J was
cut down to $401,000. The report showed
the asylum to be one of the best managed
of the State institutions. v. ;
PASADENA, Cal., Oct. 9.— A youth,
about 18 years old, was found shortly be
fore midnight last nignt lying uncon
scious beside an electric-car line on South
Fair Oaks avenue, where he had appar
ently fallen from a car.
It was found he was suffering from con
cussion of the brain. He remained un
conscious all night while a doctor worked
over him. This morning some one recoc
nized him as Roy Bike, whose parents
live on California street. He is still in a
dazed condition and can give no particu
lars of the accident. His injuries are
serious, but it is not believed they will

GTPSI NG DRIVEN FROM KERN.
Escorted by a Posse to the Los Angeles
BAKERSFIELD, Cal., Oct. 9.— A posse
of officers returned to-day after escorting
a band of thirty or forty gypsies across
the mountains through Tejon Canyon to
the Los Angeles County line. These
gypsies have been in the valley for some
time, and have committed ail sorts of
depredations. The Sheriff drove them
out of town several times, but as often
they came back. Finally, as their thievery
became unbearable, the" Supervisors depu
tized a posse to escort them out ot the
county. This wts done, greatly against
the will of the gypsies, who offered bribes
to be allowed to return.

All People Not Alike.
A letter-carrier said his wife liked coffee
so well and seemed to really need it at
breakfast it was too bad for the doctor to
order her to discontinue it. He told her
that her bad complexion, dyspepsia, ner-
vousness and occasional palpitation of the
heart all came from one cause and : that
was coffee drinking. The good man went
on farther to say : "My child, it you were
as strong as your husband and had- the
miles of outdoor walking to do that he has
daily you could drink one cup of coffee, or
perhaps two, at breakfast and dinner with-
out any very bad effects, but the same
poisonous alkaloids exist in coffee as are
found in tobacco, whisky, strychnine and
morphine. There is not so great a pro-
portion of them in coffee as in the other
drugs, but a sufficient amount exists to
seriously injure any one whose constitu-
tion is a little below par. All of these
drues can be U3ed for a time by perfectly
healthy people, but if their use is per-
sisted ■in long enough the human body
finally gives evidence of the effect of the
steady poison, and many people who do
not know tbis fact die because of their un-
natural habits. ■' If you could use a hot
drink in the morning made from the
nourishing grains that nature has pro-,
.video for the use of man it would satisfy
your appetite and fatten your body."
A wholesome, delicious hot drink of the
kind that old doctor referred to is found
in Po3tum Coffee, made from grains by
the Postum Cereal Company (limited) of
Battle Creek, Mich.; it brews the rich
color of Java or Mocha, has a grand fra-
grance and the pungeut taste demanded
by all coffee drinkers. No poisonous al-
kaloids are found here, and man is only
safe when be sticks to nature's food, fur-
nished by the Creator, prepared in a num-
ber of different ways, to be sure. : Ruddy
health and red blood will follow the dis-
continuance of unnatural drinks and the
substitution therefor of the Cereal food
drink. Its use will tell the facts more
plainly in the body than words can be
made to express. Grocers furnish it and
experience teaches that it goes aDout three
times as far as coffee.

'; obstruction— the slightest — is injuri-
ous to the rider of a wheel. It disturbs
i the internal organs, jars the nerve centers
of the spine, strains the kidneys and vital
organs and induces general weakness. All
old riders speak of this weakness, which
can and should be guarded against. ': Give
strength to the nerves and muscles of the
back and help them to stand the strain.
Make them elastic and vigorous. An even
steady current of : electricity, infused into
them daily, will do it. It will prepare you
for the severest strain.
