Special Dispatch to The Call.
SAX JOSE, April 11.— The day was
warmest of the year, the thermom
eter climbing up to 85. Business was
practically suspended, as all interest
was centered on the battle at the bal
lot boxes. The polls were opened on
time all over the city, and at each
voting place crowds of workers were
present. It was noticed that the "gang"
forces were everywhere in evidence in
- ■ numbers. At some precincts as
y as twenty and twenty-five
j" workers were present, where
only one or two men were doing work
the Charter Club.
While there was much Interest in the
main, the election was a quiet one. A
r.urnber of challenges were made at !
various polling places and these near
ly always caused some delay and led;
■ In the First Ward
W. T Nolting, a "gang" member of the \
11, made himself conspicuous by
illdozing tactics and came near
g a serious drubbing for Inter
fering with the wrong man. At the ;
Third ] _ ■ J. M. Stevens was ar
al voting. It is claimed!
that he voted In one precinct while liv
ing in another:
"Jim" Kea was on the street beg
ging and threatening for votes. His j
henchmen, John and Andrew MacKen
zie, were also begging votes, showing
how serious they considered the fight
-t the corrupt rule.
Undoubtedly the best ore-anlzed work
d >ue during the day at the polls was
by the "Gang" forces. In this

A WOMAN'S DEATH
Neighbors Attracted by the Cries of Mrs. R. A.
Long of Hanford Find Her Enveloped
FRESNO, April 11. — Mrs. R. A. Long, sister-in-law of Coroner Long
of this city, was burned to death at her home in Hanford this after
noon. She was in the kitchen Ironing, when a gasoline stove explod
ed. The oil covered her clothes and set the house on fire Instantly.
Flames enveloped the unfortunate woman from head to foot. She was
alone and ran from the house screaming for help.
Neighbors heard her cries and ran to her assistance. Flames en
veloped Mrs. Long, and she was running about in a frantic manner
and screaming with pain. The clothing burned fiercely about her
head and body, scorching the flesh horribly. The neighbors procured
blankets and tried to extinguish the flames, but their efforts were made
too late. When the fire was finally extinguished she was carried to
the house of a neighbor, where she received every attention. She sur
vived the frightful accident only an hour, however, dying at 5:30
Dr. Long of this city left immediately for Hanford upon receipt of
the shocking news. The woman's husband is R. A. Long, and he
conducts a transfer business in Hanford. Mrs. Long was 30 years of
age and had three children.

NO INJURY TO
Mayor Phelan Explains
the Provisions of the
Veto of th© Contract for Re
pairing Third Street
Devany Determined to Put a Stop to
Slot Machines Used by Saloons
and Cigar Stands.
Mayor Phelan has addressed a com
munication to the Scavengers' Union, In
reply to their petition requesting him to
veto the order passed by the Supervisors
at their last meeting, in which he denies
that the order is prejudicial to their busi
ness or that It will injure the scavengers
in any manner. The Mayor states that
the Board of Health will not require the
use of any particular make of carts, but
will only Insist upon garbage wagons
being water-tight and covered. Regard-
Ing the resolution passed declaring In
favor of a tax levy to enable the board
to enter into a contract for the removal
of garbage at the city's expense, Mayor
Phelan informs the union that the proper
course to take is to protest to the board

or else secure the contract itself for its
At yesterday's meeting of the board the
Mayor presented nis veto of the resolu
tion awarding the contract for repairing
the bituminous pavement on Third street,
between Mission and Howard, io Fllnn &
Treacy. This is the job recently exposed
by The Call, wh "in the Supervisors ig
nored the bid Of J. J. Dowling of $575 and
awarded the contract to Fllnn & Treacy
at $2099. When Dowling's bid was called
to the attention of the board, Supervisor
Britt said that Dowling had bid for the
work under a misapprehension. The mat
ter went over until last week, when Dowl
ing was called upon lor an explanation.
His statement was lamentably weak, but
the board accepted it and awarded the
contract to the other linn, In his veto
message, the Mayor said:
"Mr. Dowling admitted before the
Board of Supervisors that if the contract
were awarded to him he would do the
work, and 1 recommend that it be so
Devany offered an amendment to the
resolution presented by Delany last week
regarding the licensing of nickel-in-the
slot machines. Devany's amendment ex
pressly prohibits the licensing of all such
machines paying winners in drinks, ci
gars or their equivalent. The effect of
this order would be to abolish all such
machines, which is Devany's object. The
matter was referred to the License Com
The Equitable Gas Light Company hied
a bond of $5000, insured by the National
Surety Company, as a guarantee for prop
erly repairing the following streets after
laying mains thereon: Stockton, from
Slitter south and across Market; Post,
from Stockton east to and across Mont
gomery; Sutter street the same.
The board passed a resolution to sus
pend the one-twelfth act, so as to admit
of expenditures being provided and paid
for the lighting 01 public buildings, owing
to the insfllciem-v o. the fund for that
purpose. The deficiency is $14,000.
It was decided to authorize the clerk to
advertise for bids for repairing all bit
uminous streets for a term of two years.
The bids for laying stone sidewalks on

ily detained at the City Hall, at a salary
of $75 a month, and Mrs. Nellie E. Wright
and Miss Louise Malloy were apolnted
matrons at $60 a month each.
The board staved off for another week
the request of the Mutual Electric Light
Company for permission to extend its
service, in order that it may be prepared
to enter into competition for the public
lighting contract; also the petition of the
Merchants' Association for the lighting of
public streets by electricity, by adopting
a resolution referring the matter to the
committee of the whole and fixing the
date of the meeting at 10 o'clock next
Saturday. As the present contract for
lighting public buildings expires on May
1. there is little chance of the Mutual
Company being given a chance to make
good its guarantee to save the city $40,000
a year on the present cost.
Mayor Phelan asked that the final pass
age of the award of the contract for re
paying Market street with blturn<"T i.-.

MISS SLAVAN'S HEARING.
Colonel Parnell Will not Appear in
the Role of Prosecutor.
Colonel Parnell, secretary of the Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Chil
dren, is considerably annoyed at the po
sition in which he thinks the Superin
tendent of Schools is evidently trying to
place him relative to the matter of the
investigation of Miss Slavan, one of the
teachers of the Cleveland Primary School.
Several weeks ago a number of the lit
tle pupils of that school called upon Mrs.
Prescott, the assistant secretary of the j
society, and told her a shocking tale to
the effect that their teacher, who is a
sister of the principal, is given to the
use of language not fit to be uttered by
a lady and a teacher of the young. Sec
retary Parnell communicated to Superin
tendent Webster the substance of what
the children had told the officers of the I
society, saying that he believed the in
vestigation of the same rightly belonged
to the' School Board.
That tho board decided to make an in- i
vestigation of the case is evident from I
the fact that Secretary Parnell recently j
received a letter officially notifying him |
to be present to-morrow at the head- i
quarters of the School Department with
his witnesses, when he and they would
be heard. Colonel Parnell is very much
annoyed that he should be placed in such
a position by the officials of the School
Department. He so wrote to them yes
terday, saying that they have no right |
to place him in the position of prosecu- I
tor, and there was nothing in his first
letter that could be so construed. The
matter was one wholly within the prov- |
inee of the School Board to do as j
it sees fit. As Colonel Parnell has given '
the Superintendent the names of all the j
witnesses he knows of, it Is not at all
likely that he will appear at the meet- I
ing, nor will he make any effort to round
up the witnesses in the case.

Indorse the Central
Action Increasing Membership
Is Received With
Designed to Afford ■ Representative
for Each Polling Place In
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SACRAMENTO, April 11.— The action
of the County Central Committee
whereby the membership was increased
from eleven to seventeen has met the
general approbation of prominent Re
publicans in this city. The design of
the committee was to meet as far as
possible the provisions of the Stratton
primary law recently declared by the
Supreme Court to be defective. Whila
the purposes of the law are defeated by
the decision there is no doubt that
m_ny of its features were indorsed by
the people generally, and to meet that
sentiment the committee took the ac
tion it did.
Under the Stratton primary law
there were a greater number of polling
places provided for than has been cus
tomary to have heretofore.
In order to respond to this evident
desire on the part of voters the com
mittee -was compelled to increase its
number so that the additional polling
places which will be provided for later
would not be without a representative
of the party. The action of the com
mittee is highly commendable as it
brings the choice of delegates and other
party privileges more to the people.
The following Interviews show the fav

the action of .'.ie committee and have
all along. The larger the committee

with the proposition which increased
the number of County Commltteemen.
It was a very wise move, an* I believe

William M. Sims— The action of the
committee is certainly sustained by the
best Republicans in the city and
county. I have heard no one express
any other opinion.
judge E. C. Hart— l can see no harm
in it I am sure that it was not in
tended tn get the best of anybody*, but
to have the city and county fully rep
resented on tho committee so that Re
publicans generally will be made to
take a livelier interest in the affairs of
T. A. Lander— l most certainly ap
prove the committee's action.
J W. Wilson — I have heard no one
complain, and as far as I am concerned
I believe it was the proper thine: to do.

larger number you interest the better.
I believe the committee realized that
fact when they Increased their number.
