The trouble arose over the fact that
Arada engaged his brother to help him
repair the roofs of the buildings at the
Emeryville racetrack. He collected un
ion wages for his brother, but main
tained that his brother was only doing
helper's work. The union warned him
and then fined him, first $11 and after
ward $25, for persisting in retaining his
brother in the position. Arada then de
manded that his brother be allowed to
join the union. This was denied, and*
he then demanded the money back he
had paid in fines. This was returned
and he was expelled from the union.
He found that he was then unable to
get work and began an action to get
back into the union again.
Shinglers' Union No. 1 of this city
has been ordered by the Superior Court
to reinstate an expelled member. A
writ of mandate directed to the union
and its secretary by Judge Ogden this
afternoon commands, it to rescind its
action expelling Thomas Arada from
the organization. The Judge held that
there Is no provision in the constitu
tion and by-laws of the union provid
ing for such expulsion.
The order is the result of an action
begun by Arada against the union to
ti tnpel it to reinstate him to member
ship. The trial has consumed several
days, and the testimony developed the
fact that Arada had been a member
of the union and had been expelled be
cause he had employed his non-union
brother to help him.
The question whether the work per
formed by Fillmore Arada. the brother,
was such work as the union had Juris
diction over was not a matter the court
took into consideration. Judge Ogden
based his decision upon a review of
the proceedings of the union in regard
to the expulsion of the member. An
examination of the constitution failed
to show that there was any provision
for the expelling of a member for em

said, the union would have had the
right to expel him.

They were taken to the home of Mrs.
Charles Mellln of 1721 Alcatraz avenue,
where they had been visiting. A physi
cian dressed their injuries. The child's
right leg was severely crushed, but not
broken. Mrs. Maguire lives at, 424*4
Shotwell street, San Francisco. Re
garding the accident, she said:
"I saw the cars coming together, but
it did not seem possible that the motor
men would let them come into collis
ion. It is so clear at the crossing that
there was no need for it. It was a
great piece of carelessness."
Motorman Huckstable said he
thought he had the right of way and
sent his car ahead because he had
counted on the other man stopping.
WOUNDED CAKED FOR.
Neither motorman checked his car
as he approached the crossing and the
result was the Inevitable smash, the
cars striking each other at the con
verging corners of their front ends.
Mrs. Maguire and her daughter were
sitting on the front end of the Alca
traz-avenue car, outside. They were
almost directly in line of the Tele
graph-avenue car's approach • and it
seemed that they would be crushed to
death. But the cars, striking together
on their corners, saved them. Both
mother and. child were thrown heavily
to the ground.
The clash occurred at 6:30 o'clock.

A HEAVY CLASH.
BERKELEY. June 22.— Two cars of
the Oakland Transit Consolidated col
lided this evening at Alcatraz and Tel
egraph avenues. They were full of pas
sengers, but all escaped injury with the
exception of Mrs. Frank Maguh-e and
her daughter Phyllis Maguire, aged 6
years, both oLwhom received severe
cuts and bruises. The escape of the
mother and daughter was marvelous,
as they were in a position that exposed
them to the full force of the contact.
Thd tracks are clear of obstructions
where they cross at the Intersection of
the two avenues, and the men in
charge could see the streets on all
sides for a block. Each motorman
says his car had the right of way and
that the other should have stopped at

Harrison streets last night and sud
denly assailed him with the sandbag.

Oakland by Gonzales that they might
discuss Waite's proposal to buy the
