- The man who gets to "the club"' ,. so
often does not know whether to shake
hands with himself or feel hurt. Since
hercan ride to his home in the suburbs
now at any hour of the morning, he is
enabled to save the dollar paid for a
room, when he heretofore "accidentally"
missed his last car, but the inconvenient
part of it is that he has to drop that old
excuse that he missed, the last car. Those
living in the Potrero and Presidio dis
tricts can still run the old bluff , however,
as the night service does not as yet in
clude the lines covering those portions of
the city. Satisfaction is heard, particu
larly from the workingman, who labors
till early morning and is saved the incon
venience of walking several miles to get
to bed. "Owl" cars are now run on the
Mission and Kearny, the Eddy and the
Ellis and -O'Farrell streef lines. After 1
a. m. cars leave each end'; of the line
every' half hour.
"VTfth the advent of the "owl" service
upon the electric lines of this city there
is a general rejoicing among all classes. ,

Following the , sixteen white forms of
the children . came seventy-eight laymen
with lighted candles In hand, followed
closely by twenty acolytes, also bearing
candles. Then slowly marched thirteen
priests in vested chasuble, and incense
bearers followed, immediately preceding
Father Frieden, who under a beautiful
and elaborate canopy reverently bore the
blessed sacrament. In the rear of the sa
cred procession c^ime about fifty of tho
officers of the Ladles' Sodality, each rev
erently carrying a lighted candle.
The procession was ended, the benedic
tion, was delivered by the celebrant and
the. vast congregation slowly dispersed,
many picking up as sacred- souvenirs the
roses that had covered the passage of the
processionists.- , . • "
Immediately after vespers-, the proces
sion was formed. and the blessed sacra
ment was carried triumphantly, along the
aisles and around the church to tho
grand strains of the "Pange Lingua" by
the immense combined choir of the church
and the i Ladles' SodalUy. Heading the
procession were a nurrroer 4 of little girls
dressed in ¦white,- arid- from dainty baskets
they showered the path of the procession
ists with. roses. Then, as the light-blazed
altar was left by the clergy, the. great
organ and the voices-swelled forth thrill
ing music. .
At St. Ignatius Church yesterday morn-
Ing the solemnity of Corpus Chrlstl was
celebrated with high mass, at which th«
Rev. Father Allen was celebrant, the Rev.
Joseph -Hickey deacon and Patrick Ryan
sub-deacon.' The sermon was preached by
the Rev. Father John Sardi. St. Ignatius
was largely attended. There was not a
vacant seat in the great edifice through
out the ceremony.- •
The evening service was most imposing
and consisted of vespers with solemn
"Magnificat" by -the choir. The Very Rev.
John P. Frieden was ; celebrant, the Rev.
Father George Butler was deacon and
Henry R. Fleurens, S...J., was sub-deacon.
"I do not ask my people who come to
hear me preach to vote for this man or
that, but I do demand that they- should
have lofty ideas and righteous thoughts."
Dr. Harper spoke of the- danger of for
eign immigration, but said if they could
be touched with the same principles that
were In our forefathers' hearts they, too,
could be made good patriots, concluding
with the statement: "The church has a
wonderful duty to perform— It is the
Christianizing of such a people, for right
eousness exalteth a nation.".
"President Roosevelt at Arlington last
Friday said, 'There is no such thing as
liberty and freedom where there is not
strength and wisdom.' ¦ K'^^
The speaker quoted the skeptic, Hume,
who said, 'A people without religion were
a little better than brutes." .
Macaulay once said that "Whoever does
anything to depreciate Christianity is
guilty of high treason against humanity."
Dr. Harper said: "I will go farther than
that. I will say that no man can be a
good patriot if he depreciates the Chris
tianity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
"The man. who huzzas the loudest is not
necessarily the greatest patriot- The
truest patriot is the man who withstands
popular clamor, who withstands Senates
and opposes even the King. Men wno
have been burned at the stake as heretics
and executed as traitors .have often been
the truest patriots. The true patriot rises
above partisan strife, because he foresees
the destiny of the -people. The. highest
patriotism seeks to make its Government
the noblest; anything below that ceases to
be true patriotism.
"The religious beliefs of the people are
what Governments are built on, neither
the army nor the' navy. nor the President
make these great United States, but the
hearts and beliefs of the people go to
make the American Government. The
state is the reflex of the church. The al
tar shapes the throne."
Dr. Harper said he belonged to a de
nomination whose constitutions did not
believe that the church should dictate to
the laity, but that the church should aid
by giving the people loftier ideas. Con
tinuing, he said: ¦¦ --- • - r - . .
"Rousseau was right when he said,
'Never was a state founded that did not
have religion foT its basis,' and since the
time of tne Roman Empire under Rome
lus, down to Charlemagne, no Govern
ment functions had ever been executed
without some appeal to the deities.
"Plutarch knew, when he wrote 'there
never was a kingdom built of atheists.'
and L»ord Ersklne, the great jurist, knew
when he said, .'The world cannot be kept
together without morals.' and morality
cannot be maintained without religion."
The Rev." Dr. Harper preached a strong
sermon last night at the Centenary Meth
odist Episcopal Church, Bush street, be
tween Gough and Octavia. He spoke on
patriotism and the necessity of its having
religious surroundings. In part he said:

. MEET IN NUMBERS
Conway Is known to have cashed quite
a. number of bail orders on drunk charges
In saloons in the vicinity of the Hall of
Justice. So»ne of these were indorsed in
the name of the person in whose favor
they were drawn, and some were not.- If
It is found that the indorsement on the
orders were forged it will present a new
and decidedly serious addition to the
"I propose." said Captain Martin, "to
begin at the initial point of this case. ai;d
for that reason I have detailed Detectives
Wren and Dinan to try to locate the per
sons whose bail is alleged to have been
forfeited and afterward drawn from the
treasury by Conway and the case entered
on the docket as dismissed. If we can
find these people and ascertain that thev
did not get their bail money we shall
make a strong case against the suspected
Conway appeared unconcerned regard
ing the latest disclosures of his manner
of conducting the office he holds, and
early this morning said he had nothing
to fear. He said he stood by his records
and defied any one to find anything ir
regular about them. When told that dis
crepancies had been discovered between
his books and the memorandum kept by
Judge Mogan he said he was not account
able for Mogan's memorandum. His en
tries, he said, were the records of the
court, and were not to be attacked by
private memoranda. Late last night a
report gained currency that Conway had
disappeared. He heard of it in some way
and came down to the Hall of Justice to
set at rest the rumors of his flight.
Captain of Detectives Martin proposes
to do whatever is in his power to ascer
tain if the charges of bail "kiting" on the
part of Convray are well founded.
I have requested Bond Clerk Greeley to make
me out a list of all cases vhich have been
appealed from the Police Courts, so that I
may investigate and find out if the bail money
in these cases has been tampered with.
If there has been any further crooked work
In connection with bail money in Judge Mo
pan's court, we will find out to-day. I do not
ihir.k that any very large amount has gone
When the bail money is exonerated the man
who put it up must, before he can regain it,
6ecure an order from the clerk of court. This
order must be sigrned by the Judge I cannot
pee how it is possible for there to be any
fraud in connection with bail money, unless the
Judge is negligent in signing orders. In the
Treasurer's office we personally seldom know
the men who present the orders for the return
of the bail money and we must pay this money
to any one to whom the Judge gives an order
¦When bail is paid into the treasury it is
charged to the account of the man who puts
it up. If the man fails to appear in court at
the proper time and his bail money is de
clared forfeited, the clerk of the court in
which the man's case was heard makes out an
order for the money payable to the County
Clerk. This money does not leave the treas
ury. The County Clerk simply sends in the
order for the money and it is transferred to
Deputy Treasurer Charles 3. Perkins
when seen last night in regard to the
latest developments in the Conway bail
scandal gave the following account of the
process that must be observed before bail
money can be withdrawn from the treas
WITHDRAWAL OF MONEY.
The Judge considered that enough had
been shown to warrant an investigation,
and he laid the matter before Captain
Martin, giving him a list of the cases re
ferred to. The captain detailed Detectives
Dinan and Wren on the case, with instruc
tions to make an investigation and report.
If the bail money in these cases has
been withdrawn from the treasury after
being declared forfeited, then the person
withdrawing it has been guilty of falsify
ing the public records and obtaining
money by false pretenses.
Edward Swift was arrested May 13 for
being drunk and on May 16 the Judge de
clared the bail of $5 forfeited, but the
court record shows no entry at all on that
date for Swift's case.
Jack Riordan and Thomas Dowell were
arrested May 15 for being drunk and each
deposited $5 cash bail for his release. They
failed to appear in court and on May 17
the Judge declared the bail in each case
forfeited. The court record has each case
L. T. Walkman n was arrested May 13
for disturbing the peace and carrying a
concealed weapon, rie deposited $15 cash
bail for his release. He failed to make
his appearance in court and on May 16 the
Judge declared his bail forfeited and so
marked it in his docket. The court record
has the two cases marked "dismissed."
ASBEST OF WALKMAKN.
Yesterday afternoon in a few minutes
several discrepancies were discovered be
tween the Judge's dockets and the court
records, which are in the custody of Ser
geant Charles McDonald.
If a man arrested for a minor offense,
such as drunkenness or disturbing the
peace, puts up bail for his release and
docs not appear in court the Judge de
clares his bail forfeited loud enough so
that the clerk and all in court can hear
him. The Judge records in his docket
•'bail forfeited," and the court- record
«hould bear the same disposition. If,
however, the court record should state
that the case was "dismissed." then the
ball could be withdrawn from the City
A new feature in the system of "kiting"
bail money was discovered yesterday by
a cursory examination of Judge Mogan's
dockets, which are kept by the Judge him
self as a record of the disposition of all
cases each day in his court, and the
court records kept by Frederick B. Con
way, clerk of the court. The dockets and
the court records should correspond, but
in several instances where bail money
was deposited there is a discrepancy.
Cossmann went to 389 Geary street last
Friday and engaged a room, telling the
landlady that he was a "captain" at the
Palace Hotel. He offered her a check in
payment of his room rent and she took it
to her grocer, who refused to accept it.
Then, in his desperation, Cossmann broke
into King's' room and stole the clothes
and shoes, pawning them so that he could
get money to try his luck at poker, but
the cards never turned his way.
When searched at the City Prison a
large number of checks drawn on differ
ent banks and private firms, which he had
written out himself in different names,
were found in Cossmann's pockets.
Cossmann Had been a waiter at the Pal
ace Hotel tor two years up to last March,
when he retired, after saving about $500.
He desired to increase his wealth, and
with that object in view began piaying
polier at the Cafe Royal. His luck was
intermittent, but his losses greatly ex
ceeded his winnings till he found himself
penniless. He pawned everything he was
possessed of excepting the clothes he wore
and lost the money at poker. At these
times he gave his address as 073 Howard
Jatob Cossmann, a waiter, 21 years of
age, was arrested yesterday afternoon by
Detectives Ryan and O'Dea and booked at
the City Prison on a charge of burglary.
Cossmann was very penitent and wept
copiously while the officers were search
ing and booking him. The charge against
him is for breaking into the room of T.
R. King, 389 Geary street, Saturday morn
ing ana stealing a suit of clothes valued
