ACROSS THE BAY.
The English Syndicate Buys tlie
Oakland Brewery.
Colored Citizens Dimnnd a Eepresentation
on the Bepublican Ticket— A New
Church for Alameda.
The Oakland Brewery has at last been
swallowed up by the English syndicate
after holding out stubbornly, in May, 1887,
Fritz 1-oebnier and Carl C. Peterson, of
Alameda, entered into a contract with Joe
Dieves and Charles Krainm to purchase
the brewery within six months, agreeing to
pay for it Iho sum of 90,000. For some
reason the contract was never carried out.
When the syndicate was formed it tried to
get the Oakland Brewery for the sum for
which it had been agreed to sell to Boeiimer
& Peterson, but the proprietors refused to
sell for less than $150,000, and finally the
syndicate has come to the brewers' terms.
The transfer has been made and the court
will be asked to confirm the sale. The
raise of $60,000 in price inside of one year
is considered a fortunate one for the owners
of the brewery.

COMTBADICTOKY EVIDENCE.
Policeman Coobiijr Accused of "Fixing"
ft Witness.
A colored man named Edward Turner,
accused of n criminal assault on Mary Mas
sou, an old Kussian woman, was before
Judge Murphy on trial yesterday.
The main circumstance of interest in the
hearing was the testimony of Charles Kelly.
Un the preliminary examination he testified
that lie was present and saw Turner Willi
disarranged apparel, and heard the as
saulted woman cry out. Yesterday, how
ever, lie contradicted everything previously
said, and declared with a grea t deal of em
phasis that Turner did nothing out of the
way at all. Ilis former testimony, lie said,
was all a lie.
"Then why did you swear it?" asked the
Judge, sternly.
Kelly explained that be did so at the in
stigation of Policeman Conboy. The officer
came to him, he said, and represented that
the old woman was about lo die, and that if
she did, the fact that he was with Turner
would implicate htm in a case of murder.
Conboy showed him a paper written on
both sides, one of which contained what be
was to swear to.
Officer Conboy was immediately sent for,
but testified that he did not show Kelly any
paper, or tell him anything at all. In fact
gave the direct lie to everything Kelly had
said.
Mrs. Mas son, the assaulted woman, testi
fied through an interpreter and said that
Turner did assault her. Sue lives at 44
Jessie street.
When the Judge had finished charging
the jury he made special reference to Kelly's
strange testimony, and said it was a case
deserving investigation. Either Kelly was
guilty of perjury or Conboy was guilty of
subornation of perjury, and if possible the
guilty man sliould be discovered and pun
ished.
The case went to the jury about half-past
3 o'clock, and at 0:30 in the evening a ver
dict of "guilty as charged" was returned.

Delegates Bush Dell and Fulirman. who
waited on the San Jose Convention for the
Federated Trades iv the interest of the Au
stralian ballot system, returned hero yester
day biglily gratified with the Democratic
platform. Tney say it has recognized the
efforts of the laboring classes to secure
ball at reform, and the laboring classes in
return express themselves as duty bound
out of gratitude to recognize aud aid the
party. The delegates said they had little or
no trouble to get a hearing, in fact the
plank was practically in place in the plat
form before the hearing was asked. The
general opinion among the labor leaders
now is that the Federated Trades can pur
sue but one course, approve of tlio conven
tion's action and adopt its platform. This
will come haril on those who are hide
bound, they admit, but they feel obliged to
recognize the only great issue they have in
the coining campaign. s V- :-.■;- -':--•
. ONLY ONE l.i: IT.
Nun-Union -Holders Gradually -Leaving
th* Occidental.
It was reported at the headquarters of
the union molders last night that two more
of the non-union men had left the Occi
dental Foundry. This leaves but one niolder
at work there. Originally there were nine
teen molders employed in that foundry, and
that was the average force tho year round.
After the strike it ran along with about six
men and they kept leaving, while now but
one remains.
The Committee of Arbitration has not
yet succeeded in getting a conference with
the foundry men, but it is early yet aud
they are not anxious to precipitate matters.
All of that association with whom they
have conversed express a perfect willing
ness to meet and talk matters over quietly
and temperately. There seems to be but
little doubt that the conference sought will
be granted. *
-Discouraged Willow-Workers.
The willow- workers have decided to
change their name to the Rattan-workers'
Protective Union. This move comes about
from their failure to secure tho co-opera
tion of all the willow-workers in their
efforts to combine and strengthen the in
dustry. In spite of all they could do or
say they found it impossible to shut out
the deluge of willow-ware from Kurope,
and there was no use trying to compete
against it. Committees were appointed to
reconstruct the constitution and by-laws
and procure a new seal ; also a circular was
issued to wine and liquor merchants asking
them not to buy German willow-covered
glassware any more. The legitimate busi
ness of this union hereafter will be rattan
work only.

AFTER THE POACHERS
The Charleston Takes Supplies
and Sails Nortb.
Her Departure Viewed as a Determination
on the Part of the Government to
Protect the Seals.
Late yesterday afternoon a dispatch was
received at the Merchants' Exchange from
Newport, Yaquina Bay, Oregon, as follows:
Culled Males steamer Charleston arrived from
Honolulu. look supplies aud sailed north.
Win ant.
There were few subscribers in the ex
change at the time, but the news spread
and the room soon filled up with seafaring
men who discussed the significance of the
dispatch. At first it was disbelieved, for
the reason that no commander would take
a deep-water steamer like the Charleston
into such a place as Yaquina Bay. "It
would be too risky," was the general com
ment. Then again, it was argued, why
should the Charleston go to such a place ns
Newport for supplies? Her principal need
-would be coal, they said, and there were
more convenient places than Newport to
get it- When, however, the sender's name
was considered doubt vanished and the ut
most credence was placed in it. Captain
Winant commands the steamer Mischief,
and reports from him have never yet been
discredited on 'Change.
The significance of the departure of the
United States revenue cutter Corwin sev
eral days ago from Port Townsend lor
Behring Sea, and the sailing of the Charles
ton yesterday tor northern waters, was too
marked not to excite serious comment. The
general impression is that the administra
tion means business this time, and that the
poaching sealers will have to beware.
It is thought by many that while the
cruiser was lying in Honolulu her com
mander received orders from Washington
on the termination of the Behring Sea cor
respondence, to coal and proceed to Alaska
to aid in suppressing toe illegal destruction
of the seals. Others take a calmer view of
the situation and do not place any signifi
cance In the coincidence. They: think it
means no more than a trip south. The
general impression, however, was that the
cruiser was not sent north ou a pleasure
jaunt.
Information lias been received in this
city that the poachers have -been making
large hauls during the absence of the
United States war vessels, and the number
of their catch for the season has been
placed at 20,000 seals, and that the greater
part of the skins have been landed in Vic
toria and purchased by the Liebes Com
pany. » ■ . .
Ills considered probable that the Gov
ernment has learned these facts, and has
determined to protect- those to whom It
gave the exclusive rights of sealing in the
Behring Sea.
Whatever the mission of the Charleston,
her -ailing north at this critical . period of
controversy causes her departure to be
looked upon as significant of the deter
mination of the Government to stop the
poaching at all hazards.
A POISON LD CUP.
The Struggle of a Wife to Prevent Her
...no, I Taking Paris Green.
A few nights since, according to the Bal
timore Herald of recent date, George Ecke,
31 years of age, living at 110 North Greene
street, attempted suicide by means of Paris
green. Ecke has been intoxicated for a day
or two, and yesterday was; very despond
ent. He is a brick-layer by trade, \ and . his
■wife keeps a confectionery shop at the
above address. : *fj?BS ? C!jf'W-gffWßffl * Tl. WH
_; Ecke entered the saloon of Mrs. Miller,
on Lexington street, near Greene, • last
night, and ordered a glass of beer. - lie told
Mrs." Miller as he went out that that was
the last glass of ; beer he expected to drink,
and' displaying a package, > said -he - had
bought 10 cents' worth of paris green and
wns going home to give his wife and five
year-old - little girl a dose and , take a doso
himself. He said he; bad a good wife and
child, ' but jhe was ' In * trouble and desired
that all should die. ; - - '- "-'• '•
■a lie went home and passed his wife In the
store, going to the I rear room, as she sup
posed, to i eat his - supper. She went back
soon i after - and ' found - him - mixing " tho
poison with water in a glass, lie told her
of his purpose nnd she tried to grab tlie
glass.-,. They struggled for several minutes,
she pleading wit him not to drink it ou
her account. * In the . tussle I both were cov
ered by - the : mixture, " which was spilled
from the glass. 'rUMMXaAr* i-iy|"l_BU_ ll i ■ 'JMW,
* Sho could not prevent liim from taking a
draught : from the glass, but did the ; next
best thing and ran for a physician. She
went to the Maryland University Hospital
and with two students rushed back to the
house. They found Ecke sitting on a chair
In the store coveted with splotches of green
mixture and seemingly overcome by the
poison. Emetics were applied and the man
was later removed to the hospital. It is
thought he will recover.
Ecke is from Berlin, Germany, having
been in this city eight years. He declared
hia intention last night of again taking
poison as soon as possible. "I'll get a
quarter's worth if I can and take it. I'm
tired of living."
Ecke's father is quite wealthy and from
time to time sends him remittances. The
last one amounted to SIOGO and with part of
tills money Mrs. Ecke purchased the store
on Greene street Ecke's sprees have been
the source of much anxiety to his wife. • :-'-
A THOKOI'IiHBKED RASCAL.
The Kemarkable Criminal Career of J.
B. Stock.
A leading firm of solicitors received a let
ter from their correspondent at Watertown,
X. V., which contains the latest chapter in
the history of a refugee from American
justice named J. B. Stock, who was wanted
in Philadelphia and New York for forgery
when he arrived here eight years ago, says
a special to the St. Louis Republic from
Montreal, dated August 12th. Here ho beat
a widow who had taken him into partner
ship out of 818,000 and with it started a
stock, oil and grease company. Stock lived
1 in Cote St. Louis, a suburb of Montreal,
where he became a pillar of the Methodist
Church and President of the Royal Temp
lars of Temperance.
At this time he had living here three
wives, one at Cote St. Louis, with two
children one at St. Albert and one at Sut
re in out, with one child. All these places
are suburbs of Montreal, and how he kept
the three women apart is hard to explain.
The grease company did not pay, and he
fled after committing the forgery, taking
with him the money lie bad collected to
purchase an organ for his church. Detec
tives looked in vain for him, but the letter
in question states that he went to Ogdens
burg, where he failed to form a partnership
with Mr. Sbelton, and thence to Watertown.
There lie went into business with Mr.
Wood, but in the absence of his partner,
he Induced his wife to turn all her property
into cash, and the two eloped together, leav
ing their families. They went to Chicago,
where they bought tickets for San Fran
cisco, but further " than that their move
ments have not been traced.

mons and a party of young men friends
went down to McCormick's Bluff on the
Trinity Kiver, yesterday, on a fishing ex
pedition. Steumions has frequently "dyna
mited" the river for fish, although often
times warned against the practice. Yester
day he held two large dynamite cartridges
in his hands and announced that lie was
going to ttso the same. His companions
shrunk back. Steimnons hurled one of the
cartridges into the stream and a slight ex
plosion followed. An instant later a second
report fairly shook the surroundings and
prostrated the entire party. -Young Stem- '
moiis' eyes were blown from their sockets,
his left hand was torn : away above the
wrist, and his right leg below the knee
was blown to atoms., lie lived for fivo
hours.— Special to the . St. Louis Globe

Title Guaranteed Perfect and Sale to be Strictly Genuine. Positively Without Reserve.
This property has been ordered to be sold in subdivisions, as described In diagram
above, which will not only enable the small investment-seeker to purchase, but offers a
very factory opportunity for large speculators. Sixteenth-street cable will shortly
be constructed to run from the New Ferry Landing direct to the Park and Ocean.
WW IF YOU HAVE MONEY TO INVEST, DON'T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY!
THE VAKNEY ESTATE is an exceptional offering. It is the best business prop-
erty in the market to-day. It is on tbe main business street of the Metropolis of this
Coast, as Valencia street is the natural continuation of Market street.
THREE REASONS FOR THIS CONCLUSION:
FIKST— Big businesses never move up hill; like water they seek a level. Our business
sections all lie on low ground; our residence sections are on tbe kills; 'therefore busi-
ness will naturally select VALENCIA instead of the Market-street Extension.
SECOND— The city cannot move west beyond the coast live. It must extend southward.
All the recent small business growth of the city has sprung up east and west of
Valencia street. -.-•.;
THIKb- All the manufacturing interests of the city are being located in the southern
part, and this means constantly increasing business importance of Valencia street.
CONDITIONS OF SALE:
Twenty (20) days allowed for settlement and to complete purchase. Principal and interest
payable in United States gold c.in. Instruments of sale at purchaser's expense. A depositor
