had complete charge of a ''smoking"
section of llronms. The average daily
attendance for one week at this place
was 400 drug victims* Many of these
were well dressed businessmen, some
were fashionable patrons, and many,
uiHJer age, went there to gratify
their opium craving.
Sheriff Finn denied that» he recom
mended the parole of opium users ar
rested and convicted by Flckert, as
stated by the district attorney yester
day. Flckert had the case of Charles
Levy, notorious drug user, looked up
and* on the paper forwarded to the office
the name of Sheriff Finn is signed as
sponsor for the parole of the drug fiend.
A queer situation has developed in
connection witlj. the theft of the gold
bullion. To prove conclusively that
the gold being disposed of by the
W^odsons is the stolen Tanana bullion
It may be necessary to subpoena the
assayer who cast the gold bricks. As
the closed season has begun in Alaska
this witness can not come until next
spring. ,
Smith, with great craft, left the dis
position Of the bullion entirely to the
Woodsons. To account for his pros-
Parity he hit on the plan of daily visit
ing the race track. On his return he
would meet the Woodsons in the street
and get the money from the sales.
Though rumors of more arrests are
many, Detectives Wilber and O'Day
will not discuss the case. While the
Henry woman has been a vaudeville
performer, both the Woodsons have
been acrobats and entertainers.
Move to Thwart Smugglers
For the purpose of preventing a repe
tition of the attempted escape of the
15 Chinese from the steamship Man
churia two weeks ago, customs and
immigration inspectors, boarded the
steamer Asia last nighl before it put
into quarantine after arriving from
the orient.
This is the first time in years that
inspectors have been sent on board a
vessel before the quarantine officials
had passed upon the health of the pas
sengers, but Collector of the Port Strat
ton is determined that no more smug
gling sfrall be carried on from vessels
arriving from China.
The Inspectors were instructed to fire
upon any boats which came near the
vessel during the night. They will re
main until the vessel is ready to clear
from port again.
A thorough investigation of the vari
ous "departments under him has been
begun by Collector of the Port Fred
erick S. \u25a0 Stratton to determine if any
of the charges made by dismissed Cus
toms Inspector Charles Freund that
men in the service were connected
with smuggling of opium are true and
to prevent the" "leaking" of informa
. tion from underofflcials and to gen
erally reorganize the methods of the
customs house so that a check may be
had on every employe.
Thirteen inspectors and boarding of
ficers were called before Stratton yes
terJay and questioned as to what con
nection. If any, they have had with j
alleged opium or Chinese slave girl
smuggling.
They were also interrogated as to
whether they had themselves or wheth
er they knew-«f any who had given out
information on important matters re
quiring: 'investigation by secret service
and other government agents before
the .natters were to be made public,
with the result that the investigations i
had been rendered useless.
The customs inspectors and boarding
officers denied knowledge of all wrong
doings and "leaks." Brit the position
and detail of each man was noted for
the collector, and hereafter he will be
in a position to determine at once who
giv esout secret information.
Letters have been sent out to depart
ment heads, warning them that any in
formation given but by them or those
under them, will result in the immedi
ate suspension of the offender.
The inspectors and boarding officers
summoned yesterday were:. Charles E.
Langhams, A. E. .Buckley, Warner M.

GOVERNMENT CLERKS TO
WORK LONGER HOURS
Taf t and Cabinet Add Half an
Hour
WASHINGTON', Dec. 16.— President
TaTt and his cabinet decided today that
all government clerks employed in
Washington shall work half an hour
longer each day. The decision is in
line.Avith the policy of. the administra
tion for greater efficiency and economy
in government departments. •'• ' v
The time for reporting each morn-
Ing was fixed at 8:30 o'clock instead
of 9.
Up to a few years ago the govern
ment clerks in Washington worked
from 9 o'clock until 4, with half, an
hour for lunch, making an actual
working day of only six and a half
hours. Then the hours were extended
to 4:30, so as to give a seven hour day.
Now the clerks will have to work
seven and a half hours each day.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17; 1910.
. . '- . ; \u25a0 .-.,.... • . ; \u25a0;',\u25a0 ..,. *" : '.- r
ON the stage and in stories people "strike oil" and arc elevated to sudden
affluence in a day. The . transition is lightly ; accomplished in , the
delightful manner of a fanciful world, and there are no- sordid prelim
inary details of, figuratively speaking, digging for the oil..- Strange to
say, it is a thingthat may'happen in' real life. It happened tofhe Blanks of
San Francisco last week." .
They are a quiet, unassuming family, who have lived quiet lives' and
known the usual economics of quiet people. .When an attractive daughter
of the household finished school she drifted into society .with^no elaborate
launching — a bright, capable girl, 1 who made many of her own party gowns.
In her second season she married, which disposes of one member of the
interesting group. \
After her marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Blank continued^to live. unassumingly
'at the family home until last week, when, without 'the slightest warning, they
found themselves among the millionaires one morning. It was like Aladdin
and the Arabian Nights. They were, of course, properly incredulous, and,
very much as they do in dramas, the Blanks assured and reassured themselves
of their dazzling good fortune. Then they planned a trip abroad. On the
day after Christmas they leave for Europe to spend a happy year in long
dreamed of places.
It has -the Indian summer charm of a Howells situation. But/ for all
that, the story of the Blanks is true. For 30 years they have owned a thou
sand waste acres in Tulare county. A few weeks ago prospectors wandering
over it found evidences of oil. A shaft reached pools of it (orit may have
been* rivers), and excited telegrams sought the owner of the land.
The Blanks had never required the services .of a lawyer, but they engaged
one then, and after consultations 1 they parted, with a few acres for a- few
hundred thousand dollars. The rest of their barren tract represents an
appraisement of tjvo millions.

LEAGUE PLANS TO
REPLACE MISSION
Marin Promoters Hope to Erect
Duplicate of Historic San
Rafael Edifice
SAN RAFAEL, Dec. 16.— The erection
of a duplicate of the old San Rafael
mission and the building of a modern
ElCamiho real are a part of the elab
orate plans for the new year that will
receive official notice at a special meet
ing of the Marin promotion league Mon
day ''night.- An oil painting of ithe old
mission exists, and from this the pro
moters hope to. draw plans for a small
building that will" contain relics of the
Marin Indians and the padres who
taught them. -
The league officials hope to interest
the'state road engineers in the revival
of the "king's They expect
that a portion of the $18,000,000 set
aside for state; roads^ will be used in
this county and will seek to have their
share used in making the county road
from Sausalito to Petaluma, the old
Camino real, a modern boulevard in
keeping with, its original name.
Another plan which will be consid
ered by the board of directors is that
of restoring the ferry service between
San Quentin point and San Francisco.
Instead of landing passengers at San
Quentin, however, the proposed boats
would steam up San Pablo bay as far
as Schuetzen park. From \u25a0 there the
new electric I'oad, for which a fran
chise, was" recently 'granted, would
transfer the passengers to San Rafael,
San Anselmo and as far south as' Corte
Madera. It is estimated that this
would shorten the, trip from San Fran
cisco from CO to 45 minutes.
A program of festivities has also
been outlined by the league, to begin
with a ; New Year's carnival at San
Rafael under -the auspices of the local
lodge of Eagles, which will crown the
festivities with a masquerade ball.
Each town of importance in Marin
will be asked to hold a celebration In
accordance with its customs, environ
ment and" history. The celebrations
will succeed each other at intervals of
approximately 30 days. Among them
will be a William Tell day at Tomales;
a water carnival at and Bel
vedere; a Mount Tamalpais day atMill
Valley, in which the history of the
Tamal Indians and the old mill will be
depicted; an Easter Sunday rose car
nival at San Rafael; a Booster day
celebration at Larkspur; a May day
festival and an autumn grape festival
at Kentfield; a stock fair at Olema; an
industrial fair at Novato, and a big
midwinter county fair at Tamalpais
Center, . .
The reception to be
given this afternoon at
the Claremont country
t;lub, when Mr. and Mrs.
G eor ge McNear Jr.' wi 1 1
introduce their daugh
ter, Miss Ernestine Mc-
Near. will be attended
by the debutantes and a
large contingent, of so
ciety folk from, this side
of the bay. Mi ss Mc-
