SAX FRANCISCO, Sept. 18. —Gen.
W. Ilazen. United States secret service
ageut, and his wife of a few hours
strolled into an O'Furrel street oyster
house Thursday night in search of
something to appease their huuger.
As they entered the place a small man
who was nervously putting rome vi

floor, sat holt upright, turned pale,
then began to quiver with excitement
and with his eyes resting en the wo
