State Railroad Commission Has
Under Consideration Com
plaints Against Companies
Inquiry Will Result in General
Modification of Tariffs and
An exhaustive examination into the
whPle subject of express rates in Cal
ifornia, with the end in view of caus
inpr a general modification of the
tariffs and schedules applying to intra
stete business, was begun yesterday
morning by the !-tate railroad < oni
mission, sitting in bank in San Fran
cisco. The hearings will continue until
all complaints, both formal and in
formal, have been heard, after which
the new rate making will begin.
As a basis for the investigation,
which is the first in which the express
rates have been considered, there are
three general complaints drawn up in
legal form, and countless individual
complaints from small snippers In dif
ferent parts of the state. In making
the examination the commission de
rided to call into question not only
the rates to which there is epeciflc ob
jection, but all the express rates In
the state, of which a thorough study
is being made.
One of the cases under consideration
!* the complaint of the Merchants' and
Manufacturers' association of Los An
geles against the Wells Fargo and the
American Express companies. Oscar
C Mueller, attorney for associa
tion, tiled with the commission yos
lerday morning a detailed complaint,
charging that the express schedules
now in force discriminate against Los
Angeles in favor of San Francisco.
Comparative rates from San Francisco
and Los Angeles to points in the San
.loaquin valley are quoted, showing
That the average rate from San Fran
( isco to points, hundred weight a
mile, is .0068. while the average rate
fmm Los Angeles if .0106.
Another formal complaint, filed by
the board of supervisors of Orange
county, attacks as unfair and discrim
inatory the rates from both San Fran
cisco and Los Angeles to points in
competitive territory. The third writ
ten complaint, filed on behalf of the
California Central Creameries, attacks
tb« rates on butter and cream and asks
judgment in the sum of $4,568.75,
alleged to be the amount collected by
the express companies during the last
year in excess of a reasonable charge.
MANY INFORMAL COMPLAINTS
A number of informal complaint*
were heard. J. H- Wentx, cashier of
the Bank of Foisom, declared that the
rates on gold and silver shipments
from Foisom to Sacramento were too
high. L. S. Lathrop of Belvedere, com
plained about the rates on saplings
shipped to him from interior points.
H. R. Tlmm and Fred A. Hutton, dairy
men of Dixon, asked for a reduction
of 5 cents in the 25 cent rate charged
on cases of milk from Dixo* to San
H. A. George, a poultryman of Peta
luma, objected to rates on eggs and
poultry as being too high. C. R. Gra
ham, traveling agent of the Wells
Fargo company, could not explain cer
tain inconsistencies In the schedules
brought out by George's testimony.
Mrs, Hugh Montgomery, appearing for
her brother, Wlnthrop Howland of
Redlande. a shipper of blooded goats,
also presented a complaint.
E. S. Pillsbury attorney for the
"vigils Fargo company, examined the
witnesses. The hearing: adjourned un
til Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock.

Club's Chilly State Rooms
Fire Hot Southern Blood
Missouri Colonel Balks at Alabama Apart
ment, and Vast Complications Arise
James K. Polk, not the well known
president of that name who came
somewhere between Washington and
Lincoln, as every schoolgirl knows, but
James K. Polk, who comes from the
Southern club In California Btreet. has
learned the true meaning , of state
rights, a proposition with which the
oroginal J. K. P. was wont to dally.
Somewhat subsequent to the first
James X.'s interest in state rights
there was a sanguinary war in which
the problem was decided with serious
complications. The Southern club war
over state rights came right In the
midst of the contemporary dealing ,
with the question. James K. II
brought on the war.
Polk, the living assignee of that
great name, was chairman of the com
mittee on arrangements of the new
Southern club house. * the handsome
colonial building which stands out
above California street between Stock
ton and Powell. Hβ thought he would
introduce some new Ideas in the club,
and when it came to arranging for the
bed chambers he decided that Instead
of having the common numerical sys
tem, as is in vogue in every hotel and
lodging- house in the world, he would
have each apartment bear the name of
one of the beloved southern states.
Then the Arkansas traveler would
sleep in "Arkansas' and the Virginia
creeper could creep to a couch in a
room labeled Virginia.
MISSOURI COLONEL SHIES
It was a fine Idea. James K. Polk
was complimented on if.
Each room was named and the club
opened for business. The idea was
carried out well at first.
One day, however, a letter reached
the club asking; that a reservation be
made for Colonel — of Missouri.
The reservation was made. The
colonel arrived and wag escorted to his
room. As he reached the portal he
stopped and read the name on the
"What," he gasped, "do you mean,
MAY BE MENACE
Property Owners Fear That
Chinese Quarter Spread
The ancient question of the encroach
ment of the oriental quarter upon new
territory was brought before Mayor
Rolph last night at his weekly "kickers'
meeting" In the form of a complaint
against the location of the new oriental
school, for which a lot was purchased
recently in Washington street between
Powell and Stockton streets.
It was claimed by J. H. Condlt, who
owns property on the west side of
Powell street, that the building of the
school would mean the shifting of the
center of oriental population to the
west, and that eventually the tide would
flow across Powell street and property
values would be ruined. He declared
that a Bchool on the proposed location
would precipitate a more serious race
war between the white children and the
Chinese than had ever been known.
Condi t appeared at a previous meet
ing with a suggestion to locate the
school near Grant avenue, in the cen
ter of a block, but the architects had
rejected the proposal unanimously.
Mayor Rolph told the complainants last
night to find another location and re
port next Monday.
Several residents of the Mission ap
peared at the meeting and told the
mayor that a plan was on foot to close
Commerford street, a narrow thorough
fare running parallel to Twenty-sev
enth street, between Church and San
chez. William O'Hare. head of the
delegation, said that while the street
had been open for 26 years it had
never been taken off the tax duplicates
and recently had been sold for taxes
Mayor Rolph said it would not be
INTENDED ROBBERY NOT
Detective Michael Burke returned
from Sacramento last night, where he
had gone to get extradition papers for

of assault with intent to commit rob

obtain papers at the capital and wired
to Washington, D. C. for information
He was advised by the secretary of
state that the crime which is charged
againpt Black is not extraditable under
the treaty between this country and
(Heat Britain. Efforts will be" made
to iiave Black indicted on a charge of

bama room, suh?"
"It Is Just a room, like all other
rooms; that's Just a name, you know,
instead of a number. It might have
been numbered 5, but the room was
lettered 'Alabama'," explained Polk.
"Well, suh, I don't sleep in no Ala
bama room. Missouri is the brightest
gem in the galaxy of states and it
stands second to none and unafraid and
dominant before the world, suh. Ala
bama, I admit, may be a better state

KICKS FROM KENTUCKY
The room labeled Missouri happened
to be occupied at that time by an ami
able citizen from Florida, so%he colonel
was put in Missouri and the Florldan
went into Alabama.
That was Just the start. Two Ken
tuckians arrived at the club simul
taneously one day, and each demanded
the Kentucky room. They were pre
paring to settle the matter in Califor
nia street at 50 paces when Polk
stripped the nameplate off Mississippi,
which had no club member, and cre
ated two Kentuckys. The bitterest
trouble came when a man from South
Carolina found that a was
occupying th«t South Carolina apart
ment and declared that his state had
never been so grievously insulted since
Siimter had to be fired on.
Those experiences instructed James
K. Polk of the present more thor

learned In the years he served as presi

CAN NOT STOP
This Admission Is Made by Gen
eral Manager Schwerin at
R. P. Schwerln, vice president and
general manager of the Parlfic Mail
Steamship company, confessed his in
ability to cope with opium smuggling
on the steamers of his company yes
terday at the investigation in connec
tion with the fining of Captain Adrian
Zeeder of the steamship Siberia. He
attributed the large amount of smug
gling on the Pacific Mail vessels to the
fact that Chineee crews were employed,
and intimated that it was possible that
there was not as efficient a watch
maintained by the customs inspectors
over the Japanese liners as there is
over the Pacific Mail vessels.
REWARD SYSTEM A FAILURE
That the traffic could be broken up
by offering a reward for all opium
found on board chip. as is done by the
Japanese companies, was scouted at
by Schwerln on the theory that it was
impossible to get Chinese to spy on
one another. He said that on the
Japanese liners the reward system
worked because there were two alien
peoples pitted against each other, the
crews being Chinese and Japanese.
Schwerin contended that the law in
regard to opium smuggling was not.
severe enough and recommended that
all persons convicted of smuggling
opium should receive at least a five
years' sentence in the penitentiary.
GOVERNMENT WANTS SUPERVISION
The hearing closed by United States
Attorney John L. McNab, who repre
sented the government, saying that
the government would guarantee to
stop the opium traffic if the company
would place the ships under its super
vision, and allow the secret service
to handle the situation.
The case of John P. Bourne, purser
of the Manchuria, who tendered his
resignation last Friday after giving
the facts to the government in regard
to the drowning of Fourth Officer Ed
ward Morse in Manila, while arranging
to smuggle opium ashore, also was
brought up. Schwerin denied having
discharged hW for telling what he
knew to Attorney McXab. maintaining
that his resignation had been for

Best Low >
On our floors may be seen the very best medium
and low priced pianos to be found in San Francisco.
The products of many of the finest factories of the
country are shown, and they are priced at identically
the same figures that you would pay for them on the
floors of their manufacturers in eastern cities.
A high price does not necessarily guarantee the
worth of a piano. Many dealers base their prices
on the appearance of the instrument, on the elabo
ration of its case design, depending on ornamenta
tion-to cover the inferior quality of its structure and
mechanism, and to hide its shortcomings in tone
and action. . Pianos of this class find no place in our
house. Instead, the prospective purchaser is shown
piano quality as the first consideration in any and
every piano at any and every price. Case, action,
finish and tone must be of the highest standard
attainable at the price asked, and that price, quality
considered, is lower here than elsewhere on the
At $200 to $300 we have a splendid lot of new
pianos that are worthy of closest comparison with
instruments offered at other houses at much higher
prices. Every size and design is here. Finest
mahogany, walnut and the new Stickley oak cases
are shown in numbers that give the broadest oppor
tunity for selection. They are good pianos, fully
guaranteed, and may be purchased on the most con
venient monthly payments. You owe it to yourself
and to your pocketbook to see them before buying. ;
