SHAKE SAN FRANCISCO
Thrown Through Window of
Saloon Mystery Clouds
San Francisco. Calf., June 1. Com
plete mystification was expressed to
day by the proprietors of the two pool
rooms which were damaged by ex
plosions last night as to the reason for
the attack. Proprietors of gambling
resorts and sporting men generally
failed to remember any instances of in
harmony which would lead to the be
ginning of a disastrous poolroom war
such as resulted in extensive damages
in Chicago and New York several years
Sfaeek W&ele Town.
The three heavy explosions shook the
downtown district of San Francisco.
The first two were located at Tom Cor
bett's poolroom and saloon, on Fourth
and Stevenson streets, and at Broyer"
saloon, on Stevenson street. The third
was about 10 minutes later.
Tom Corbett is a brother of James J.
Corbett, and became known in sporting
circles all over the country as a bet
tin? commissioner in the Jeffries
Johnson heavyweight championship
fiprht at Reno July i, 1910.
The explosions, recalling in . their
mystery and violence those which
wrecked many saloons and poolrooms
in Chicago for a series of years,
astounded the local police department.
Stevenson street is a narrow thor
oughfare paralleling Market street, the
main artery of the city, and running
. i:st behind the Palaee hotel. It is
practically deserted after nightfall.
No one was hurt in any of the ex
plosions. Corbett's and Broyer"s are small
wooden houses in the cheap downtown
district known as "south of Market
j-treet." Neither was occupied at the
time of the explosions.
Bomb Tossed ThrOHk Window.
At Corbett's the bomb had been
tossed through a window pane, broken
to permit its entrance. It lay there
sizzling from its fuse before anyone
realised what it was.
At Broyer's the bomb was tied to the
front doorknob. In both cases damage
was confined to breaking windows and
shaking of the Joists, already insecure.
While the police were investigating
the first two explosions, a third was
heard. After some search, it was found
to have been on the opposite aide oi.

Has Slight Accident Craft
in Which He -Expects to
Sail Across Atlantic.
TOGETHER WITH CREW
SAILS 500 FEET HIGH
Atlantic City, 2C. J., June 1. Melvin
Vaniman floated hie airship Akron, in
which he hopes to cross the Atlantic
ocean, out of the hangar early today,
and after circling over the meadows and
bay for nearly an hoar, made a safe
landing. After he had the great gas
bag again safely stowed away in the
shed, he expressed himself as satisfied
with the test.
Meets With Accident.
The ship is the same one in which ha
made a flight over tSe citv last fall, with
improvements. During be trip today
he met with a slight accident which
might have proved disastrous. Very few
persons saw the flight, which was start
ed at 6:45 a. m.
Aboard, besides Vaniman, were his
brother, Calvin; chief engineer, Fred
Almas; assistant, George Bourrillion;
assistant navigator, Walter Guest, his
mehankian, and Ralph Upsom, ot
Akron, one of the constructors of the
8b i p.
Vaniman had been out half an hour
when the accident occurred. The dir
igible had performed splendidly, answer
ing the guiding hand of the navigator.
Then he tried out a new guide rope ex
periment. A long hawse- with a hun
dred pound weight attached was low
ered and permitted to drag ir the wa
ter. In some manner Calvin Vaniman
made a wrong move with the propellers.
The middle Made, in the string of three,
caught in the trailing rope. The huge
craft lifted and came down in a wobbly
descent like a bird with a broken wing.
It struck the vater, and a portion of
the understructure went under water,
damaging one of the side planes. When
temporary repairs had been made, the
oauoon went aioit once more.
Difficulty la Coatroling Balloon.
Vaniman had difficulty in controlin"
the balloon. His young brother, while
the eraft was 500 feet above the water,
clambered out to the end of the slender
propelTor shaft, 20 feet rrom the side oi
the dirigible, to adjust the damaged pro-
Vanhwan ' finally TnuP everything is
shipshape, and after circling over the
bay for a .short time, pointed the shin
toward the .hangar -and made a landing.

Phoenix,- Arte, June J. There Was

message, will be defeated, as probably

makins a, total' of eight for and 11
The house spent the forenoon on consideration-
of a. bHI providing for the
removal of the Industrial school from
Benson to the Fort Grant reservation.
The measure is opposed because of the
$J,8 expense involved and the house
voted, IS to 13, to refer the whole mat
ter to the next legislature.
Governor Hunt has declared if the
legislature did not take action looking
to the removal of the inmates of the
industrial school from the present
building he will remove them himself
and lodge them in hotels and with
private families at the state's expense.
Legislators and Convicts Compared.
When the anti lobbying bill came up
for consideration in the house. Kirke
Moore, of Pima county, remarked that
he thought the legislature is entitled to
occupy a plane at least as high as
that occupied by the state's convicts:
and in view of that fact he believed
the bill should be defeated.
"This administration has recognized
the 'honor system' among the crimin
als," Mr. Moore said; 'they are al
lowed to come and go almost at pleas
ure and no guard is set over them.
Now, I believe that this legislature is
as honest as tle average legislature
and I believe Its members are to be
trusted at least to the extent tliat the
inmates. of the state penitentiary are
trusted. But if you pass this bill you
are throwing suspicion on the legisla
tive body of this state you are put
ting the legislators in this matter be
low the convicts.
"What is the use of a bill such as
this, anyway?" Mr. Moore wanted to
know. "If a man wants to go to a
member and talk -with him about some
MIL what is there wrons about that?
I have too much confidence in the hon
esty and the character of the members
of this house to believe one of them
Is going to accept a bribe. It seems
to me that when you pass a bill such
as this, you are placing a rather low
estimate on the men who have been
chosen to represent the people of the
state of Arizona.
But it seems that estimate was not
accepted by ' the house for it proceed -ed
in committee of the whole to rec
ommend the bill for passage.

The railroads are having their trou

to run a stub train to Las Cruces and

between Albuquerque and Kl Paab by
way of Deming over th- Southern Pa
cific. The morning train for the north

ancient name and reputation. At the
rock dam at old Fort Bliss the water
is pouring over the wier in a flood of
turbulant. yellow water which roars
like a small Niagara and forms rapids
which extend as far as the intake to
the Franklin canal on the American
side. On the Mexican bank the spill
ways are pouring the overflow waters
back into the river to prevent the
flooding of the Juarez canal. From
the dam to Conrchesne's crossing, the
river is out over the fiats and back

yards of the Mexican settlements along
the river bank.
Camp Madero, opposite J. J. Orms
bee's house, is partially flooded and the
level flat where the Xaderista revolu

a small sized lake .with the river cut
ting toward the Mexican bank in a
number of places. The water is up to
the street car tracks in a number of
places between old Fort Bliss and the
smelter although traffic has not been
stopped between the city and the
smelter pumping station.
At the smelter pumping plant the
feed pipe from the river has been brok
en by the river and has caused a
change in the. current, throwing it
against the American bank and cover
ing the street car track for more than
loo yards at this point. The water
has not damaged the county road at
this point as it Is several feet higher
than the river bank. The seepage has
dampened the rock road In a number
of places, however, and has filled the
low places on the side of the road op

is in danger in a number of places

Fear Felt For Safety.
Though no overt act has been om-
mtted to indicate that the rebel of
fidala would not ho ahlo tn roatrain
the populace in anti-foreign outbreaks,
the tone of the proclamation issued by
rebel chiefs, indicating that they might
not be able to curb the passion of the
people, has seriled to alarm the foreign

of this telegram were suppressed by the

Mexico City, Mex., June 1. Unoffi
cial, but apparently reliable infor
mation was received here last night
confirming the occupation of Lerdo
near Torreon. by rebels, and it was
said fears were .felt for the safety of
Government circles apparently are
without information regarding the sit
uation. Advices doring yesterday
either made no reference to Lerdo or
mentioned operations at other points
in that territory.
Messages were received from Gen.
Huerta at Jimenez, and from Gen.
L Blanquet. who is operating south of
Huerta discussed the general situa
tion with reference to his operations
against Orozco, and Blanquet said he
had driven the "febels from the vicin
ity of Aviles in Ddrango: that be
tween Duraugo, the capital, and Zaca
tecas, the rebels were gathering in
large numbers and being followed
closely by government troops.
As apparent confirmation of Blan
quet's statement, the American con
sul at Durango reported that the reb
el general Campa had been defeated
near Pedricena. and that the federals
were pursuing . his fleeing forces.
Pedricent and Aviles are in the same
vicinity. Troops have been sent from
Durango to engage the insurrectos in
front while their pursuers harass them
in the rear
This covers the day's war news in
the Lerdo territory as far as available
in Mexico City, except for the unoffi
cial telegram declaring Lerdo is now
within the rebel territory.
Ledro's importance lies in the fact
that It is regarded as a strong step
toward the capture of Torreon. Gen.

Fighting Near Torreon.
Washington. D. C. June 1. In view
of the claims by both federal and in
surgent commanders of victories for
their respective sides in the battle near
Loma, a short distance west of Torreon
some light attaches to the report to
the state department that so far the
fighting has been of desultory char
acter and without decisive results.
While the state of Mexico and the
capital itself are reported to be per
fectly quiet. in Sinaloa, Guerrero.
Morelos. Oaxaca and the Isthmus of
Tehuantepec, conditions seem bad.
A federal victory at Loma is re
ported in dispatches to the state de
partment. The rebel occupation there
was considered a serious menace to the
federals in Torreon.
Marauders were reported more active
in Vera Cruz, according to advices.
BACHIMBA BATTLE IS
Villa and Rabago May Be
. Trying to Cut Rebels
A clash betwejyn the federal forces
under Gen. Huerta and the rebels of
Gen. Orozco is expected to take place
in the next two or three days, accord
ing to the belief of the rebel officials
in Juarez, and many Americans arriv
ing from Chihuahua.
Huerta, according to the rebels is
forcing his way northward as fast as
possible, and it would not be surpris
ing, they say, if there was a meeting
between the two forces even as early
as Snnday. His cavalry was reported
to be in Santa Rosalia two days ago.
and if these forces have come north,
they are not far from the ?bel posi
tions at Bachimbs.
Gen. Antonio Rabago sod. Pancho
Villa are reported to be rushing from
Parral by a round about route to Chi
huahua from the western side to cut
off the rebels from the north.
Refugees on Friday's night train sav
that partly the reason for the alarm in
Chihuahua and the cause of the gen
eral exodus of foreigners is that they
believe a battle between the two forces
will take place in the next few days
and if the federals are successful in
approaching Chihuahua, that the town
will be bombarded by their artillery.

him several men for recruiting pur
