KNELL OF CAFES
\u25a0 - ....
Dancing, Smoking by Women
and Mingling With Patrons
Supervisors Drive Last Spike
Into Lid by Killing Slot
•T<->hn F. Seymour, former captain of
detectives a.nd during recent years head
of the "Wells Fargo secret service on
the Pacific coast, was appointed chief
of police yesterday, vice John R. Mar
~Mn. resigned and pensioned.
Coincident with the installing of Sey
mour as head of the police the cleaning
up of San Franrisro b«gan. Within a
few minutes after Seymour had taken
office the same board of police com
missioners which plaoed him in the po
p!tJon parsed a resolution prohibiting
dancing in the downtown cafes, prohib
iting the smoking of cigarettes by
women in the same cafes and placing
the ban on the mingling of women en
tertainers -with patrons of the cafes.
Before the cafe owners, who were pres-
forf* to hear the death knell of
the tenderloin, could recover their
equilibrium the full import of the
cleansing of the city was Impressed
upon those in the crowded assembly
room by word from the. board of super
visors' meeting that that body had
pealed the fate of thea lot machines by
deciding: unequivocally against the
resurrection of the gambling devices.
VICTORY FOR REFORM
The edict of the police commissioners
against the cafes will have a far reach
ing efffct. These places have always
depended on the dance floors as the
main attraction of patronage. The sick
ly vaudeville entertainment offered has i
long be*>n recognized as but a ruse to
kr-ep patrons in the cafes until the.
dancing crowds rould arrive after the
theaters. The banishment of dancing
spals the doom of the "downtown ten
derloin" and it will' be but a matter of
day.« until some of the places will close
lip permanently while others will "fold
their tents as the Arabs" and join the
so!<?rr.n procession of the "night lifers"
Lto the Barbary Coast — now the only
Micrnsed tenderloin which the city offi
cials will permit.
When the meeting of the board of
police commissioners was called to or
d^r at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
The Tumors of impending disaster to the
<Mty"s tenderloin served to draw a mot-
Jf y-. crowd to the assembly room of the
'\u25a0^•omrrnssioners. Scattered among the
spectators were the anxious faced cafe
Viwners and many of the jubilant man-
Tiered merchants, hotel men and citi
zens whose combined opposition to the
f-xistent tenderloin brought obout its
"After the dirposition of routine busi
r.*»ss, the commissioners took up the
\u25a0\vprk of creating a new chief of police.
Clerk Skelly of the board read the fol
lowing communication from Chief John
Pan Franrisro October 3. 1910.
To the Honorable the Board of
Police Commissioners of the
City and County of San Fran

RETIRES OV PE.YSIOX
The resignation was unanimously
ar^pted and John B. Martin was shorn
of his power as chief of police and be
came a captain of police on leave of
ahsencf — the leave having been
granted Martin when he took the po
sition as chief in order not to jeopar
dize his standing as a captain in the
A second resolution was then Intro
duced revoking Martin's leave of ab
sence. This was unanimously passed
and John B. Martin became again a
captain of police and was restored to
active service. But this was only for
a few minutes. The commissioners
ndjourned as a police board and con
vened as the board of pensions. A
communication was read from Martin
asking that he be placed on the pen
sion list under the retiring rank of
oaptain because of disabilities brought
nbout through trying to arrest a mur
derer July 25. ISR6. His disability was
attested to by Dr. Sanford Blum and
I»r. Albert G. Meyer, and his ailment

/\£=s!J*-* were of the best and he felt if he could but tell the people
they would be glad to buy. : .
He kept his small advertisement running as steadily as the sun rose
and set, talking goodness and purity and reasonable prices. People read
his announcements and believed them because he never exaggerated nor
used sensational advertising. They bought his goods and came back for
more. The business grew rapidly. He increased his advertising space,-
not only in his own but in surrounding towns, and the little bakery shop
of a few years ago is now one of the largest and best known in- New*
The point of this story is that there are: at least 50 merchants in
San Francisco who could commence advertising as this man did' and
make a success of it if they will do as he did — advertise quality and price
constantly and truthfully, and back the statements withthe goods. . \
A three inch advertisement six times; a week in The Call will cost
ihe advertiser very little and will produce enough new business to pay
for it twice over.
The Call can furnish a service of advertising copy that will interest'
and convince its readers and make a little space yield big results.*

Sullivan, Henderson and Spiro met
again as the board of police commis

Judge Lawlor Rules Briber's
Physical Condition Doesn't

Doctors Differ as to Effect of
Confinement on the Arch
Abe " Ruef advanced a decided step
nearer -the county jail yesterday, when
Judge Lawlor ruled that his physical
condition was not sufficiently serious
to/entitle him to be at large pending
decision of his appeal from conviction
of bribery and sentence to 14 years' im

that the court is without power to re
voke the order of Judge Cabaniss — an
other judge of the same court — admit
ting, the defendant to" bail. Each side
will be given one hour to argue this
question, and a decision will be ren
dered tomorrow morning. If the deci
sion is adverse- to Ruef he will spend
tomorrow night at the county jail, un
less, one of the higher courts comes to
NOT ENTITLED TO BAIL
The motion before the court is one
by the district attorney to have Ruef
recommitted to the county jail.
A large number of physicians, most of
them called by Ruef, were examined
yesterday, and Judge Lawlor announced
that the showing made was not suffi
cient to entitle Ruef to be at liberty
on bail, so far as his health is "con
cerned. Assistant District Attorney Ber
ry is. of the opinion that under the law
the court has power to set aside Judge
Cabaniss' .ruling and order Ruef back
to confinement. . '.
"The supreme court has ruled." said
Berry, "that pending an appeal a de
fendant in a felony case may be admit
ted to bail where extraordinary circum
stances have arisen. In this case the
extraordinary circumstances had to do
with the health of the defendant. But
Ruefs health no longer entitles him to
the leniency of the court, and I think
it perfectly lawful and right that he
should" be recommitted to the county
The contention. of 'Ruef and his law
yers is that the trial judge is pre
vented from recommitting Ruef to jail
because Judge Cabaniss has decided he
is entitled to bail. Irrespective of his
present physical condition, they argue,
the court has no power to send Ruef
back into confinement pending termina
tion of his appeal.
WELL ENOUGH TO GOTO JAIL
The medical testimony introduced
yesterday contained nothing new as to
the bribe giver's health.; Drs. George
K. Herzog, A. B. McGill, Joseph E. Artl
gues, Henry D.Brusco. : Benjamin Apple
and Robert, D.Spalding, called by Ruef.
said the defendant's liver and sp!«>pn
were enlarged, that he suffered from a
lesion of the. heart, which, however,
was well compensated, and that his
kidneys were affected, but they all said
his condition had improved since his
liberation last December. Further con
finement in the county jail would en
danger his life and permanently affect
his health, they said.
t Drs. Louis D. Mead and Frank P.
Topping, subpenaed by the people,
agreed as to the defendant's symptoms
with the other physicians, but denied
that if he were sent back to the county
'jail it would endanger his life.
