year among the Fflipinos as
manager of a company formed
In this city for the purpose of getting out

In the market. Owing to the condition of
affairs in the Philippines the young man
was not able to accomplish much beyond
careful surveys and the gathering . of
knowledge as to how the lumber can be
taken out and marketed at a profit. Even
that much information' was gained at the
risk of his life.
For many months Parker remained in
the Camarines provinces. Southern Luzon
only fifteen miles from General del Pilar's
headquarters. He had an lnterpreter»with
him and a guard of 100 bolo men, who
were in the employ of the company. A
range of mountains formed a partial
barrier between Parker's camp and the
insurgent general's headquarters, but for
all that Parker managed to. have several
brushes with the enemy. The bolo men
in his employ were natural tribal enemies
of the forces under General Pilar and
willing to fight whenever opportunity of
fered. . .
Parker was finally obliged to abanifon
his position because of illness that came
near ending his life. He was handling a
bolo one day when he chanced to scratch
the middle finger of his right hand
Poison from the deadly knife got into the
wound and hand and arm began to swell.
With great difficulty he managed to get
back to Manila, where he spent several
weeks in the hospital, undergoing three
operations and finally losing a finger. ¦ He
has not yet entirely recovered from his
illness, and will take a long rest at home
before returning to the islands.

JOHN' E. SWEENEY, the brave fire
man, who rescued an aged man
from a burning building at Bryant
and Eleventh streets, has paid the
full penalty for his heroism. He Is dead.
His terrible struggle through the flames
•with the eld man in his arms cost him his
life. He was burned past recovery and
no effort could save his life. And the de
partment of which he was a member will
' remember him as one of the most fearless
I men who ever gave up life in obedience
There was mournlnc In the Fire De
• partment yesterday, for the dead hero
•was well liked. The f-addest phase of It
all Is that the dead man leaves a wife and
;four young children utterly destitute.
There is not even food in the stricken
* home, for the needs of the little family
demanded all cf the small' income of the
husband and father. An appeal is made,
therefore, to charitable* persons, to ren
der assistance sadly needed. Any who
wish to contribute something for . the
widow and her children may do so at the
business office of The Call, where a sub
scription list is open. John D. Spreckel*
opens the list with a subscription of $100.
< The Fire Department will bury the dead
hero with fitting honors. A detail of men
from every company in the department
•will attend the funeral, which Will be
'held from St. Joseph's Church, Tenth
street, at 18 o'clock to-morrow morning.
': Sweeney's act is considered to be with
out parallel in Its heroism in the history
cf the local Fire Department. If he had
been willing to sacrifice the old man,
Michael Coyne, whom he sought to save,
he could have saved his own life. Wrap
ping a coat over his head and hands he
dashed through the blinding smoke up to
the second floor of the house,, where he
heard the screams of the old man. Re
moving the coat which had protected him
he placed it over the head of the old man
&nC then dashed downstairs. Half way
down the flames burst out In the hall and
made it an avenue of raging fire.
Sweeney could have escaped had he
dropped the old man, but he dashed on
through the fire with his burden and
dropped Just outside of the door. He had
saved Coyne and sacrificed his own life.
There are few Instances of truer heroism
!n the history -of San Francisco; and gen
erous people should consider It a duty to
relieve the destitution of the little fam
ily the hero left behind him.
The daring rescue which cost the
heroic fireman his life was not the first
which proved to the city that he had that
within him which wins the plaudits of
men and 1 which should insure now. to his
stricken wife and little ones the sub
stantial sympathy of the community.* On
August 15, 1S96, in the early moaning
when Sweeney was going to his home, he
saw fire bursting from the house f at 1014
and 1016 Bryant street. He heard the
screams of a man and woman, John and
Maria Brodie, who were helpless and im
prisoned in the burning building. •'
Utterly heedless of imminent danger to
himself Sweeney dashed into, the house
and located the aged couple on the sec
ond floor. He carried them to^ what
seemed to be the only avenue of escape—
the rear stairs. ' The flames had, eaten
them away and a pit of fire was under
him.' He carried the old man and woman
to the front of the house and signaled to
his brother firemen, who had arrived, to
throw him a rope. This was done and
he lowered his changes to the ground in
safety. When they were beyond harm he
descended from the 'burning building to
the sound of a cheering throng who had
seen his heroic act.
At the meeting of the Board of Fire
Commissioners last night the following
resolutions on the death of John Edward
Sweeney were adopted:
Whereas, This board has just received the
sad intelligence of the death of Fireman John
Edward Sw»eney from Injuries received In the
discharge of his duty by sacrificing: his own
life in saving- the life of another. ¦ .
' Resolved, That we do hereby extend to his
bereaved widow and family our heartfelt sym
pathy and deep sense of loss in the death of a
member of this department, whose heroic con
duct will forever be an example and inspira
tion to his fellow-members.
Resolved. That this resolution be spread on
the minutes of the board and a copy thereof
be presented to the family of the deceased.
Resolved.. That the members of this board
attend the funeral In a body.

DEATH CLAIMS HIS LIFE IN
PENALTY FOR HIS HEROISM
Five hundred tents, formerly of the
White City at the Presidio, but' recntly
.condemned and sold to' Nossen & Co., are
stored In an old warehouse at 112 Clay
street. Their presence has caused trouble
In the neighborhood. iS%i >!^
The tents were bought in at auction
more than 'a week ago and they had hard
ly been stored in the warehouse by their
new owner when it became known
that a case of ' smallpox had de
veloped at the Presidio, and at once
the people living in the neighbor
hood of the warehouse demanded that
the tents be fumigated if that had' not al
ready been done. It -had not, so the
health officer, Dr. O'Brien, has ordered
that they be thoroughly fumigated under
the direction of the Board of Health be
fore any of them shall be taken out of
the warehouse. • . ¦ ' .
As a matter of fact, however, there is
no danger of Infection from the old tents.
They have been out in the wind and the
rain since a year ago last spring, and It
is seven months since any • soldier - has
lived in them. When the camps were
cleared away these tents that were unfit
for further Government use were.' left
standing until they could all be sold in
a bunch. SoTne cases of smallpox . did
break out In. the camps last fall, but
whenever a case broke out the tent which
the patient had occupied was burned, as
were those in 'the immediate vicinity.
Then the ground all around the place of
infection was sprinkled with lime, and in
each instance the regiments to which the
patients belonged * were moved -over -..to
Angel Island. Smallpox never .appeared
the samq place in the camps twice., .
•The last- case of smallpox developed in
the camp where- the casuals have been
quarte'red. 1 Several tents have been burned
as usual, but' from that camp no tents
have condemned and no tents fjave
been sold. Moreover the : smallpox did not
break out until the condemned tents had
been carted away.
