it will meet a $15,000 deficit In the High
School fund when that deficit nhall occur.
The Board of Education has Incurred a
prospective deficit larger than this amount
by $61,000 because It Insisted upon estab

opposing the adoption of this resolution
Councilman Frank K. Mott said: ? -
"It Is well understood how and why this
deficit will occur. The Council disap
proved of the manner In which this .lo
flciency was created by the Bourd of Edu

virtually Indorses the action of the board
Its adoption practically establishes a pre
cedent by which the Board of Education
may Incur any expense It pleases with the
knowledge that the Council approves It.
"I am In receipt of additional statistics
from High Schools In other cities which
prove that the cost of the Oakland High
Schools Is excessive. In some Instances It
.Is almost double that of other clt^s I can
'name. Cities on this coast, too, that have
a population as great. If not greater, than
Oakland. I believe the Council should first
pass a resolution censuring the Board of
Education, then If a deficit arises meet It
as the necessity la apparent." <¦

adoption of tht» resolution would b« farci

In Fpite of the denials frequent and

truth is that the- genial twlrler was
wedded- last Friday at Stockton to Miss
Catherine Barsfleld, daughter of Dr. J. P.

student with"' the* amiable "doctor" at a
medical college In San Francisco. The
wedding was celebrated at Stockton, Jus
tice of the Peace Parker officiating.
Whether the affair was an elopement
everybody interested declines to admit,
but there was enough secrecy maintained
to lend color to the : story, and Moskl
man's busy denials have added to the sus
picion. In the face of these denials the
affair gained much more notoriety among
his friends than: It would have had the
young medical student not attempted to
conceal the facts/
The original report was that Moskiman

actual conditions the identity of the real
bride was .disclosed.
The young * people have been much In
each other's company and now ,that the
real bride Js known tl\cre will be no sur
prise among their friends. The mystery
of the affair was heightened because the
bride's name was given as "Cummings,"
In an effort to conceal her Identity. She
used her mother's maiden name.

dog belonging to Albert Barker attacked
a hay horse that was staked out in a field

he nearly killed the animal. The dog
hung to the horse's forelegs with his
teeth burled deep in the flesh and would

ALAMEDA. Nov. fi.— Park street was

Heritage & Gage, painters and paper
hangers. Buildings from 1334 to 1342, w«th
a frontage on Park street of about 125

estimated, were worth $13,000. Add to this
the loss on ptock and fixtures In the
burned stores and offices and the total
loss will probably come near $35,000.
Charles F. Fischer's plumbing shop was
wiped out. There was no Insurance on
It and the Iofs is calculated, to be $1200.
Fischer owned the building occupied by
Heritage & Gage. It was well covered by
insurance. Bruns & Strunz, coal and hay

horsts were burned to death. A. \. Lan

Some slight confusion was created by
the new election law and two prominent
gentlemen. John A- Britton, president o*
the Oakland Gas. Light and Heat Com
pany, and William G. Henshaw. president
of the Union Bank of Savings, lost their
votes from having removed after the ex
piration of the time allowed by law. One
candidate suffered In the same way.
Joseph Humphrey, the Prohibition candi
date for the Assembly In the Fiftieth As
sembly District, lost his vote by removing
and not being able to reregister.
The most bitter contest was in the j
Fourth District, where Councilman H.
D. Rowe was the Republican nominee. ;
In this district the Democrats nominated
John M. English, the only member of the !
English family who ha3 never held an j
office. Charles Roeth, the incumbent, who J
was defeated at the primaries by Rowe. i
ran as an Independent, and Walter Ti£- ]
fany. the master mechanic of the Oak- j
land Transit Company, also ran lnde- j
pendently. Roeth and Tiffany both draw-
Ing from the Republican nominee gave j
the Democrats great hope. Late last night |
the word was passed down the lin-? araont
a certain element in the Republican party
who wished to defeat Rowe to vott for
English. The desire was to defeat Rowe
at any cost and it was estimated that
English had the best chance. This fight,

Congressman Victor H. Metcalf was the
principal figure upon the streets of Oak
land to-day. His magnificent campaign
for the entire Republican ticket had at
tracted widespread attention and wher
ever he went he was the recipient of many
congratulatory compliments. He voted
early and then made a round of. the cen
tral precincts on foot in company with
Emil Nusbaumer. T. T. Dargie and Coun

modestly disclaimed any credit for hi*
wonderful campaign, saying that It was
no more than he ought to do. but never
