Ah Easterner Caught Operating
in Tins City.
Iho Sctcme Divulged by a Conductor— After
Ami*, the Agent Is Taken to Denver
■ : fcr Prosecution.
A little ever a week ago Superintendent
.7. W. Harris of the California-street Cable
Railroad Company received information
from one of the conductors on the line that a
.stranger from the East was endeavoring to
perpetrate a swindle on the company in in
troducing duplicate bell-punches, which he
bad for hire to conductors for use iv their
The matter was placed in the hands of
Detective John Curtiu, and as a result W.
11. Robertson was arrested on Tuesday
evening at the corner of Sacramento and
Powell streets, as he was about to board a
Powell-street car. He was taken to his
room at 22 Prospect place, where he sur
rendered 10 the detective ten " Beadle" and
six "Meaker" punches, an-J made a full
confession ol the scheme ill which he played
the part of agent.
Tlio orisiuator of the scheme, it appears, is
one J. Patrick Killuin, no about six months
since was employed by the Hetropolitan
street Railroad Company i £ Kansas City as
Assistant Superintendent. In the tatter
part of July last he was discharged from
the service of this company, and went direct
to Denver, where lie presented a forged let
ter of introduction lr< m General Manager
McCarthy of the Metropolitan Company to
Mr. Durbin, Superintendent of the Denver
Tramway Company. Durb'm wrote to Mc-
Carthy, who answered that the letter was a
forgery, and consequently Kiiluni did not

■ In August the Mt;iker Manufacturing
Company o( Chicago, 111., received a letter
from one H. 11. liaminond, President of the
Denver Rapid Transit Company, asking it to
send him eight car-registers. Ihe resist rs
were forwarded, and soon after came an
order foreign! more, which were also sent
to the Transit Company's President
At about the same time the Beadle Kail
way Register Company of New York City
received an order lor sixteen registers or
punches of the kind used on nearly all the
street-railways in that city. pun investi
gation it was* learned that them is no sueli
corporation as tiio Denver Rapid Transit
Company, and further, that the alleged
President Hammond was none other tuan
J. Patrick Killuui, the erstwhiU assistant
superintendent of the read in Kansas city.
He was at once arrested and eight of the
register* were found in his possession. Sis
o! the Be?.dle punches had been rented to
c nductors in n.e employ of the Denver City
Cable Coupany, for which he received 510
per week .or each device. A short time ii -
tore his arrest, and while quietly Hoiking
his scheme at Denver and Kansas City
through ; gents, he met W. 11. Robertson,
the young man arrested in this city on Tues
day last. Ki.lum was at this time employed
in a cigar-store, and also assisted one of the
l'olice Court "shysters" ot Denver in his
--lull, lie -a* in young KoberUon a
prospective "agent" and soon won the young
man's confidence by telling him that he ix
pected a pood posiuun in the Police Depait
inent, on the strength of which statement he
borrowed the sum of $50. W hen Roberi&on
asked him for the money aI. w days later
he confessed his inability to pay, but prom
ised to lay before him a "splendid scheme,"
with plenty nf d;i-t in it."
lie then explained to Robertson that the
'Scheme'" consisted in renting bell-punches
to street-railway conductors; that it was
easily worked and a sure thing, "fur even it
we ari- caugli^" said be, "my knowledge of
the law will enable me bring the thing
cut all right." He further explained that if
the punches were obtained from the manu
facturers and the royalty paid, the >tiee -
car companies could i.ot prosecute iv the
event of tliia being found out.
With such arguments as tliese he made a
friend and agent of Robertson, who agreed
to start for sun Frauchco as soon as the
lunches could be outlined. it was at this
time that the order, referred to above, to the
Beadle .Railway Register Company of Ken
York was given. 'Hie order was rilled and
addressed to "11. 11. Hammond, President
of the Denver Rapid Transit Company,"
and leached that ciiy about September nth.
t... -ven days later Agent Robertson with a
>yell-filled Banipie-cuse left Denver, and ar
rived here a few days later.

favor of John S. Mosby. Tins is tho first
intimation received here that the long-stand-

States Government had been decided.
During the administration of President U.

While there he paid into the United States

brought lull in the Court of Claims, andol>
tained judgment, hut the nimcnt then
appealed to the Supreme Court, where the

land as Piict-bcat— Tahiti Orangei.
The steamer Noyp, Captain Drisko, ar
rived yesterday, 86 hours from Noyo, with
a cargo of 11,000 railroad ties and a very
large raft of piles in tow. The raft was
built in sections not in pear-shaped form
as they were previously brought down.
After the Noyo entered the harbor she
turned her unwieldy raft over to the Robarts
to tow to the foot of Third street, and then
went over to Oakland.
Captain Smith of the Bobarts had quite a
hard time with his tow. It was a very
lung one and owing to a number of vessels
being anchored right in the fair tray, his
course was obttiuetcd. When steering
between the pilot-boat America and a
schooner lying at anchor, the tide caught
four of the sections and swung them against
Lombard-street wharf. Afterward the tug
foaled the pilot-boat and the latter was
chafed a little. The big raft was towed to
its destination without further mishap.
The weather was htzy at Point Lobos
yesterday. In the middle of the day t! ere

,'%V ■>, OBAKOBS FBOII TAHITI.
There was considerable amusement among
merchants yesterday, especially among those
interested in tlio Tahiti trade, over the pub
lished statement that there is great excite
ment at Tahiti about the .McKiiiley bill, and
that no more oranges would be Bhfpped here
from there. "It is almost 100 foolish a
thing to notice," said one of the most
prominent dealers. In Tahiti produce,
iaiinliiiiß, "but I suppose the gullible
liter had to say something to pay
for his car-fare. Why, what can the
people know down (hero yet about the Mc-
Kinley bill, Which onlj passed two weeks
ago? And even if they did, they could only
do us they are told. All the business
down there are agents for us or other linn*
here, or for firms in Australia. They don't
bother with the McKiuley or. any other
bills. We give them orders and they ship
as we order."
The British ship Selene, from London for
Santa Bosalia, went ashore at the latter
place on September 21st, and at last ac
counts her masts were gone and she was
full of water. Captain Edmund England,

recently with the dreadful loss of life, 500
souls ami more perishing.
Over 100 coal trams were in line yesterday
on the docks ju->t south of Market street.
Some of them were taking Cedar Kivir coal
from tbe bark Arcturus, but the larger num
ber was waiting for New Wellington coal

Awful Experiences of Several
There Is probibty nothing that has a greater ten-
dency to create unhappiness than 111 health. An-
tonio Trauuccoof lilti Minna street was a living
11 lustration of this fact, He is a good, honest man,
and having lived on Minim street fur a number or
years, is well known to that locality. He and bis
good wife manage a well-to-do lodging-house, and
as he is a member or a number of Italian societies,
he has many friends and acquaintances.
"I have not been a well man for years," tie ex-
plained to a reporter. "Meltings were affected, and
batlly affected. an* my nervous system was shat-
tered. 1 could nut sleep well at night and had no
appetite. I was as weaK as I child, and under sue&
circumstances was unable to work. I spent consid-
erable money on patent remedies, and then ex.
hau>ted the rest of my savings in paying doctors'
bills. Yes, I have had some of the best physicians
In San Francisco, but they did me no good. I was
thoroughly disheartened and discouraged, and as a
I.lst resource railed at the Cosmopolitan Dispensary.
The medicines they nave me did me more good In
one weeK than all the doctors bad done in three
years. I have every reason to believe they will ef-
fect a permanent cure Ik my case, lean never re-
pay them for the great good they have done me."
There are many others who can tell very much
the same story. Mr. and Mrs. John ISradley of 55
Tebama street; William 1". Kane. 1713 Tost street:
Mr. and Mrs. S. Q. Smith. 1705 Market street ; Mrs.
Mary T. Ellitte, 231 Minna street: Mrs. M. i. Me-
.Maims, 814 Jessie street: David Williams, 379 Shut-
well street, and others. The private diseases of
men are a specialty. If you arc out of the city ex-
plain your case by letter and ask their opinion. It
will cost you nothing.
Henry l'eters or San Jose Rays: "I know what It
la to suffer. For three years Ims a sufferer from
general debility, which rame on me gradually, until
It had gained such a hold that at times 1 was inca-
pacitated for work of any kind. My entire system
was broken down. I lost all color and It seemed as
if my blood hail turned So water. I lost In weight
until I almost became a skeleton. No matter how
much rest 1 would take I would hive a continual
feeling of lancuirinuss. bavin? scarcely any ambi-
tion left. Severe pains existed all through my body,
but principally In my bao*. My appetlto failed me
to such an extent that at times I would not eat what
one would call one hearty meal in two days.
".My nerves were so unstrung that the least noise
would make me tri-inMo ■ like a leaf when v is
touched by the wind. It seemed as though l eared
to do nothing but to remain in bed the greater part
of the time.
"At nights I could not sleep soundly, and for hours
I would He awake. Toward daylight I would go to
sleep; sometimes sleep all day: in fact, I have slept
so long durlugthe day tint when 1 did awake 1
would have a splitting headache.
•■I tried Innumerable doctors and all kinds of
patent medicines 1 could hear of, but I was Invaria-
bly made worse by their treatment or use. I was
finally induced to visit tne Cosmopolitan Dispensary
and 1 firmly believe 1 saved my life by doing so.
Da) by day 1 cainod In strength and was enabled to
once again attend to my avocation. Since I com-
menced taking treatment I have not had any fur-
ther care or trouble, and to-day lain fully recovered
from one of the worst attacks or nervous debility
that any man was ever afflicted with."
