ALL IS SETTLED.
The Kreling Dispute Is
at an End.
THE ESTATE DIVIDED UP.
Mrs. Kreling Takes the Tivoli
for Her Share.
FATHER AND SON THE RESIDUE.
Mutual Satisfaction Among the
Principals, While the Attorneys
Smoke the Pipe of Peace.
All Is smooth at last in the Kreling
camp. The war which has been raging so
bit.erlv for months past among the vari
ous members of the Kreling family is now
practically over, and the estate of the late
William Kreling is In a fair way to be dis
tributed without further litigation.
The fight has been a bitter one, and
lawyers as well as principals have taken a
hand in it. It began in the death of William
Kreling. almost immediately alter which
event Mr.. Kreling applied for letters of
administration, claiming to be the sole
heiress of the estate.
Against her claims wore presented those
of F. W. Kreling, father, and John Kre!
ing, brother of the deceased, each of whom
I claimed a partnership interest in the en
terprises which belonged to the William
. Kreling estate. It was at first decided in
the courts that Mrs. Kreling should have
the whole coutrol of the Tivoli Opera
house, an order which was subsequently
■ modified by the appointment rf Harry
4 modified receiver pending a settlement of
,Lask as receiver pending a settlement of
f the dispute.
After that trouble aro=e over the Krel
ing furniture factory on Guerrero street.
Mrs. Kreling filed suit to determine her
rights. She claimed that the factory busi
ness was owned entirely hv her late hus
band and his father. F. W. Kreling, two
thirds belonging to William and the re
maining one-third to F. W. Kre'ing. It
was alleged that since William Kreling's
death. F. W. Kreling being old and infirm
and utterly incapable of attending to busi
ness, had admitted to partnership in the
concern his two sons. Martin and John,
and she sued for an injunction to restrain
these sons from interfering with the man
agement of the firm's business.
Martin Kreling's claim was never
pressed, and it is understood that his posi
tion is that of general manager of the fac
tory business, on salary. But there were
cpunter-injumtion suits brought on the
other side, and there was much hostility
evinced between the opposing lawyers*,
H. H. Loventbal on Mrs. Kreling's be
half and J. D. Sullivan and H. A. Choyn
ski on the side of the Kreiings, father aud
i son. Then Attorney Friendennch was
►** brought into the case to establish peace.
The matter was continually cropping up
in the courts until a conflict of jurisdiction
between Judge lleb:>;*rd and Judge Sander
son ended in the presiding Judge assigning
all the matters at issue to the care of
Judge Sanderson. One of the issues in the
case came up before Judge isanderson yes
terday. But to the general surprise it was
announced that there was a prospect of a
speedy settlement, and the case was con
It is now known that the matter is prac
tically settled. Mrs. Kreling remains sole
mistress of the Tivoli Opera-house, while
nil ttie res due of the estate, including the
furniture factory and all real and personal
property, is to be divided between F. W.
Kre'.mg and his son John. Some prelimi
naries regarding certain stock and hon is,
which are hypothecated to some extern,
have still to be sett'.ed un, but the above Is
the practical basis of the settlement de
Mrs. Kreling and her devoted attorney
are perfectly satisfied with the arrange
ment. They regard the Tivoli Opera
house a- the one really profitable invest
ment forming part of the estate, despite
J the fact that there is only a two years'
V'-ase on the property, -subject to renewal
f. tor a further term ol two veers, while such
a catastrophe as a fire would imperil the
Interests of the widow as well as of her
two sons by her first husband. Joseph
Kiel nt:, deceased, brother of William.
On the other hand Messrs. Sullivan and
Choyn-ki are convinced that they have
secured as good a bargain for their clients.
T:.ev regard the matter in this light: The
whole estate i*. worth $180,000. The
Tivoli is probably worth about $50,000 to
, $60,000, while the balance of the property,
valuable and tangible property, is esti
mated at not less than $130,000.
It is said that the eider Kreling was
from the first averse to entering upon a
fight over the property. But he was
keenly anxious, apart from the deter
mining of bis own interests, to secure
those of his grandchildren, the children of
bis dead son, Joseph. From this time on
it is expected that things will work
smoothly and an immense amount of
trouble and expense be saved to the estate.
So the members of the Kreling family
are once more on good terms, and J. D.
Sullivan and 11. H. Lowenthal parade the
corridors of the new City Hall arm iv arm,

but when the author subsequently niei the type

at tbe c edullty of bis friend. This was the
basis ol the forging charge. Warwick is also

A Tangled Web .Which Judge Conlan
There was some very liberal swearing In
Judge Conlan's court yesterday when H. D.
Brown, racehorse-starter, was placed on trial
for using vulgar language, carrying a concealed
! weapon and fast driving In Golden Gate Faik.
Brown was arrested February 26 while driv

swore positively that he did not. Tiny said
also that Cumfor, on his horse, approached the
buggy on the right side, held his pistol in front
Of the lady's face as he pointed It full cocked
at Brown's bead and called the latter a vile
Urtine. The officer In lebuttal swore Ibat h*
drew his pistol, but did not point ii and mat be
used no obscene expression. Brown testified
also that at the captain's office Pa.k Officer

THE NEW MORGUE.
It Will Be Located in the New City
The new public Morgue was the chief ques
tion of Interest beiore the Health and Police
Committee or tbe Board of Supervisors yester
Health Officer Keeney and Coroner Hushes
both addressed the committee on tne subject.
Dr. Keeuey gave a history or the investigation
be made, which resulted in tbe condemnation
of the old Dunbar-alley building. Coroner
Hughes said that if the Morgue were removed
to i lie new City Hall he would see ibat no
oneusive odors would be permitted to i ervade
vie ball by adopting the latest appliances and
Supervisor Stanton oojected to locating the
Morgue at tbe new City Hall, saying that it
would render Hie surroundings unhealthful.
Tbe Committee decided to recommend to the
new City Hall Commissioners th. location of
tiie new Morgue in the basement of ihe build
ing, Supervisor St iou alone voting against
the proposition. Ii will lake about three
months to tit up the new Morgue.
Attorney Cowdery. on behalf of the Odd
Fellows' Cemeiery Association, petitioned tbe
committee to recommend the passage of au
order providing that no crematoiy be erected
less tban 300 fee from any hignway or public
park. He desired the passage of such an order
for the reason that the association he repre
sented desired to build a crematory, and
wanted the limits fixed on which such a build
ing could he constructed. The committee
a^r-ed to commend such an order.
It was also decided thai the Supervisors bad
no power to assess the damages done by P. J.

STILL AT ODDS.
No Agreement Reached
on Water Rates.
Supervisor Hinton's Order Makes a
Cut of Eleven and a Half
The Water Committee of the Board of Super
visors met in special session last night to re
sume consideration of the water rates for the
next fiscal year. Beslaes the committee and
several other .Supervisors there were present
Attorney Herria and Chief Clerk Booker of the
Spring Valley Water Company.
Chairman Denman announced that the com
mittee had met to come to some decision on the
■water rales, but after a two-hour session the
committee was as far away from a decision as
ever as regards a particular order to be recom
Supervisor Hinton offered a new order, mak
ing the sixth one presented to the committee.
Hinton's order is based on the piopositlon of
Supervisor Keis, to regulate the rates so that
she revenue of the company will be sufficient
to pay a 5 per cent divid nd on its stock In
stead of 6 per cent as at present. Supervisor
lliuion calculate** thai the money requited by
the company under the preseut rates for ibe
payment of 6 per cent Is as follows: Exp< - i
$400,000; taxes, $96,000; interest 1 3.000;
dividends on $1 1.700,000 stoc-,5702.000; total,
81,721,000. Deducting 1 per cent mi die
$11,700,000 bond-, which is $117,000, Super
visor Bid on calculates that the i even if neces
sary to be raised for the next year by the com
pany Is $1,004,000. This would allow the pay
ment of a 5 per ceut dividend.
Supervisor Keis said that the order drawn by
Hinton was entirely satisfactory to him, as It
carried out bis Idea exactly in Uie schedule of
Clerk Kusseii calculated that this was a re
duction of 11% per ceut from the present
rates, and Supervisor Dundon .id ihat this re
duction was too much.
After talking over the various orders. it was
evident that the committee hid no desire to
come to a vole on any particular order.
Supervisor Kogets moved that when the com*
mittee make Its report It would make It In the
shape of a resolution instead of an order so the
rates could be adopted immediately in the
boaid without passing to print. This was
adopted. A second resolution by Rogers, that
the committee report to the board the whole
-ix onleis without any recommendation so that
all could be voted on, was not carried.
Supervisor Dundoo thought it was better to
hold a caucus of the boaid so tti.it all the mem
ters could have a chance to examine th* oidei ■
critically, and a motion to that effect was car
ried, the executive meeting being set for to
It is probable that Supervisor Dundon will
withdraw his ord**r which re-enacts in* rates
of 1892 but provides that the company make a
5 per ceut discount on all bills presented to
consumers. The reason is mat the law pro
vides 'hat the Supervisors shall fix rates, and
the simply taking ofi of 5 per cent on bills by
way of commercial discount would not be a
fixing of rates. At least so Supervisor Dundon
says he has been advised.

Oakland— Frank J. Darby, assistant
agent of the Southern Pacific Company at
Brooklyn station, emptied a 3*2-caliber re
volver at five paces into J. B. Young, a
train gateman, yesterday morning. Every
bullet struck Young, flattened out against
his skin and fell harmlessly into bis cloth
ing. One slight flesh wound was inflicted.
Darby was arrested on a charge of assault
to commit murder.
The al.ray transpired at 0:45 in the
morning at Brooklyn station. Young
claims be was called insulting names by
Darby, but Darby says Young made sport
of him and his inability to receive rapid
messages over the wire. Whichever way
it was, Young is known to bave shattered
his night-lantern over Darby's head, in
flicting gashes and bruises from which
blood flowed freely. Upon this Darby
produced a Smith & Wesson revolver from
his pocket and opened upon Young. The
first bullet struck the man full Id the
chest, flattened oat against tbe skin and
dropped. The second bit the middle finger
of the right hand, penetrating the skin.
The third and fourth reached the shoul
der, flattening and falling into the cloth
ing. The fifth entered half an inch in the
location of the shoulder-blade. Young
pulled it out and went home.
Dr. Sill was summoned and dressed the
injuries. He says Young can go to work
The police were notified of the shooting
and tbe patrol-wagon sent down to tbe
station, where Darby was found at work.
He made no resistance to arrest, surren
dering bis faithful gun without a word.
The charge entered on the books was
assault to murder. Later in the day Darby
was released on bonds of $.'-.000 furnished
by bis father, who is a Deputy Sheriff
living at Brentwood; H. 11. Colby, agent
for Wells, Fargo & Co., East Oakland, and
E. M. Bailton, agent of the Southern Pa
cific Comp .ny at Brooklyn station.
Young's miraculous escape is attributed
to the thickness of the great coat he wore
and to tbe poor powder and worse
cartridges used by Darby.

the completion of a series of lectures on "Sci

VOSS WON'T COME.
Special Agent Phenix Here
He Refuses to Talk About His Trip.
All His Movements Said to
Oa the overdue Oregon train yesterday noon
Special Agent of the Treasury Pnenix arrived
from Victoria, but witbout tbe much-sougbt-for
Captain Voss. late In command of the smug
glers' yacht Emerald. As published in The
Call some days ago, Mr. Pnenix went to
British Columbia to try to Induce Voss to re
turn bere and turn State's evidence against tbe
members of the smuggling ring tbat era
ployed him, and to wbicb Thomas, Green
wald and Wichman, now under arrest and
awaiting trial, ate alleged to beloßg.
Pbenix went armed with a promise of Immunity
to Voss if be would do certain things, but Voss
demanded that all charges against nim here be
dismissed before he would leave British Colum
bia, aud this of course the Government would
not consent to. because under such circum
stances Voss might come here and give such
testimony as he pleased.
It may be Incidentally stated mat every move
ment of Pbenix while tn Victoria and tbe
north was uot only carefully watched by friends
of the smuggler, out a full and complete diary ot
his work was telegraphed here dally to friends
of one of tbe attested men, the account going
even into the details of whom i'heuix talked to,
when aud where; where he slept and dined and
what propositions he made.
Pbenix himself will say nothing further tban
that in the last three weeks he has discovered
enough evidence to render Voss* testimony un
necessary to his case against the Emerald ring.
After long consultations witn Collector Wise
and United States District Attorney Garter It
was announced that the 'rials of the arrested
men would be pushed from this time on, indi
cating i hit the Government is ready.
Brings comfort and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
j rightly used. The many, who live bet-
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
j less expenditure, by more promptly
'. adapting the world's best products to
| the needs of physical being, will attest
I the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
| remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas-
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect lax-
ative; effectually cleansing the system
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession because it acts on the Kid-
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak-
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug-
gists in 50c and 31 bottles, but it is man-
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on every
