Jake Rudolph, Who Shot at
Manager Elliott, Wants
THE BLIND BOSS ,IN HIDING.
The Police Instructed to Search
Rudolph for Hidden
Jake Rudolph is hunting Chris Buckley
with a gun and the blind boss in fear of
his life has departed from the city and is
now in hiding at his ranch, near Liver
It is a notorious fact that for weeks past
Buckley has been attended by a bodyguard.
In all his walks about the city his nephew,
William Harrison, has followed him,
carrying concealed about his person a
small but most effective arsenal. The
blind ex-boss fears assassination at the
hands of his former guide and hench
man, Jake Rudolph.
Last Wednesday evening Mr. Buckley
had a very important appointment to

keep at the Baldwin Hotel with a couple
of gentlemen, one of whom was to leave
for the East next day. Early in the even
ing, however. Mrs. Doran, daughter of ex-
Senator Tim McCarthy, called on Buckley
and warned him that if he left the house
that night Jake Rudolph would certainly
kill him, even if he had to follow the mur
der by suicide. The blind man heeded the
warning and his appointment at the Bald
win was not kept. It is still open in fact
for early Thursday morning Mr. Buckley
very quietly and unostentatiously departed
for his ranch at Livermore and has not
Before leaving Buckley sent word to the
police of the danager which threatened
him and the patrolmen of every watch
were at once furnished with a photograph
and description of Rudolph and instructed
to stand him up every time they saw him
and search him for weapons. If any were
found upon him he was to be at once ar
Rudolph will be remembered as the man
who several months ago entered the Chron
icle business ottice carrying a loaded re
volver, the contents of which were des
tined for the proprietor of that paper. Mr.
De Young was not in the office atthe time,
and Mr. Elliott, the business manager,
hearing Rudolph's threatening language,
ordered him out of the building. The
would-be assassin did not obey at once,
and Elliott grappled with him. A struggle

ensued, in which the revolver was dis
charged and the bullet found lodgement in
some silver coin in Elliott's trousers pocket.
Rudolph was charged with intent to com
mit murder, but escaped the penitentiary by
a plea of insanity. He was sent to the asy
lum at Stockton, and a few weeks ago was
pronounced cured and discharged. His
trial for the Elliott affair is set for some
time in the dim, distant future, and he has
apparently learned that he can with im
punity take human life.
The cause of the falling out between
Buckley and his former right bower
is a disagreement over money matters.
Rudolph claims that Buckley owes him
money, and proposes, if necessary, to "take
it out of his hide." The foundation for
the claim probably lies in the fact that for
years Buckley has held in Rudolph's name
and ostensibly for him from 150 to
200 shares of the Little Louisiana Lot
tery Company. This has proved a source
of considerable profit, and Rudolph has
considered it his property. When he was
released recently from the Stockton asy
lum he went to Buckley and demanded "a

settlement. But when it came to a show- I
down and Rudolph got neither stock nor
money he made the threats which resulted
in the employment of Harrison as a body
Rudolph thought that because of his
services in the past Buckley should re
member him now when the blind man has
one and he has none. Buckley, how
ever, considers the man so recently from
Stockton a "has been" — perhaps also looks*
upon himself as sueh — and does not in
tend to waste any of his cash.
There is a grim humor attached to
the case. When Rudolph was brought up
for trial for his assault upon Elliott it was
Buckley's money that paid his lawyers.
Buckley's attorneys brought forward the
insanity plea, and Buckley's influence
saved Rudolph from San Quentin. Now,
Rudolph having learned well the lesson
taught him — that he having been once de
clared insane can with impunity seek
another's life proposes to use his knowl
edge against his teacher.
patronized BY BURGLARS.
The Marguerite Saloon Robbed Three
Times in Three Months.
The Marguerite saloon, 421 Larkin street,
owned by Casey & Palm, was entered by
burglars at an early hour yesterday morn
ing. The cash-drawer was forced open
and about $20 was stolen. The liquors, so
far as could be seen, had not been touched.
There is a door leading from the saloon
to the barber's shop adjoining. The burg
lars had forced open this door and ran
sacked the shop for money but did not get
This is the third time within three
months that the saloon has been visited
by burglars. Each time entrance has been
obtained by the side door, and the burg
lars, it is presumed, have a duplicate key
for this door. The police have been unable
to discover who the burglars are. Casey &
Palm are seriously thinking about employ
ing a special watchman, as it would, they
think, be money in their pockets.
IN A CONDEMNED CELL NOW.
Wife Murderer Patrick J. Col
lins Transferred to
His Removal From This City
Kept Secret for Fear
Patrick J. Collins, the wife-murderer,
was quietly transferred from the County
Jail to San Quentin prison yesterday, and
is now in a condemned cell under sentence
His removal was kept secret by the
Sheriff that the possibility of trouble might
be avoided. It was known that he would
be given up by the local authorities, who,
however, kept the date of his last journey
to themselves. At Ip. m. Collins was taken
from his cell in the jail and securely hand
cuffed. Sheriff "Whelan personally super
intended all the arrangements, and Under
Sheriff Clack had deputies John F. Curley
and J. G. Fitzgerald to escort the con
demned man across the bay. The deputies
kept Collins between them, while Mr. Clack
walked a shore distance behind to see that
no attempt could be made to rescue the
But Collins gave them no trouble. He
assured them they need have no fears for

said. "I know I deserve it, and now I've
made my peace with God and am ready to
He chatted pleasantly, as if he was go
ing on an excursion instead of drawing
closer to the shadow of the gallows. At
San Quentin Prison he appeared quite
cheerful during the preparations for con
signing him to quarters in "murderers'
row" overlooking the pretty flower garden
in the courtyard. His unconcern sur
prised the prison officials.
"After seventeen months it makes me
feel good to get a breath of fresh air and
walk in the sunshine," he told them when
the captain remarked that he was in singu
larly high spirits.
Collins is under sentence of death to be
hanged at San Quentin on May 3. The
death warrant accompanied him and is
now in the keeping of Warden Hale.
About a year and a half ago he killed his
wife in the kindergarten at Second and
Folsom streets. She was janitress of the
school and was cleaning the place when
Collins, under the influence of liquor, went
there and demanded money to buy more
whisky. For refusing the money she was
stabbed to death and then thrown down
stairs by her husband.
A Good Game of Ball Played at the
There were not as many lovers of the
game of baseball at the Haight-street
grounds yesterday as there ought to have
been, in view of the fact that the game
played was for the benefit of Charley
Sweeney, an old-time player, who is at
present in need of help.
Those, however, who sat on the benches
and watched the players were happy, inas
much as they witnessed one of the best
games that has been played for many a
day. It was between the Olympics and a
picked nine of professionals. The game
was closely contested and resulted in a vic
tory for the Olympics, by a score of 4 to 2.
The teams were: Olympics— Lunnell,
left field; O'Kane, first base; Nealon, cen
ter field; Cosgrave, third base; McArdie,
second base; Cordes, shortstop; Krelling,
right field; Coffin, -.atelier; and Weldon,
Picked Sullivan, left field; John
son, first base; Sweeney, center field;
Beckett, second base ; Crowley, third base ;
Reilley, shortstop; Levy, right field;
O'Neif, catcher; and Kelly, pitcher.
It was stated by those who had charge of
the matter that while the attendance was
not as large as it might have been, many
tickets were sold and Sweeney would re
ceive a neat sum'of money.
A Box of Opium Abstracted From an
A daring robbery was committed in
broad daylight on Battery street on Tues
day last, and since then the police have
been vainly endeavoring to discover the
identity of the robber.
Lee Chung, an expressman, was taking
$550 worth of opium from a bonded ware
house to the firm of Kong Sing Sung, 739
Commercial street. Between Broadway
and Pacific street the box containiug the
opium was stolen from the express-wagon.
Chung saw it in the wagon at Broadway,
but when he reached Pacific street it could
not be found.
The police were at once notified and it
was ascertained that the thief carried the
box to a blacksmith's place on Vallejo
street, where it was opened and the drug
removed and carried off in a sack.

THE AMERICAN SLAVE.
Rev. E. P. Dennett Talks of the Price
;7v*! 7 » ' of Freedom.
• A mass-meeting was held at Metropoli
tan Temple, yesterday afternoon under the
auspices of the Good Citizens' Committee,
and the audience which turned out more
than comfortably filled the , spacious
auditorium. -; \'.
The speaker of the day was Rev. E. P.
Dennett, pastor of j the Potrero Methodist
Episcopal ; Church, > and he took for his
subject, "The . American Slave, or the
Price of Freedom."
Mr. Dennett is a young, under-sized,
clean-shaven man, who cuts his hair in
football style and wears spectacles. He
has a powerful .voice, and his audience had
no difficulty in distinguishing his words.
"Some one has '■ said," began the speaker,
"that a monarchy is like a ship with decks nil
high and dry and all quiet and comfortable
aboard, but liable at any moment to strike a
rock and go to the bottom. It is also said that
a republic is like a raft— it is always covered
with the water, but you cannot sink it.
"Whatever may be the truth of the simile so
far as security is concerned, it is certainly cor
rect in the other respect. We in this republic
are always in the water, and a good deal of the
time in hot water. Our history during tbe 100
years since the declaration of independence
has been a history of agitation. Hut twenty
years of continuous prosperity has so engrossed
us in business that we had left affairs of state
to chance. We have been asleep, but now are
awakened. A sleeping lion is as harmless as a
dead dog, but the roused lion is the forest king.
Sleeping Americans are as harmless as Chinese
coolies, but awakened become as powerful as
Jove's thunderbolts." '.J.-;;
The speaker described the American
slaves as the ignorant and superstitious.
China, given a constitution, would still not
be free. Nor are men free who are bound
by passions or appetites they cannot con
trol. The price of freedom was education,
personal purity and self-denial, without
which, said the [ speaker, men would be
slaves in spite of any constitutional guar
antee to the contrary.
After the address Rev. J. Q. A. Henry
was called to the platform. He spoke
briefly, inviting the audience to attend a
reception to '- be given him at his church
next Friday evening.
Secretary H. W. Quitzow spoke of the
riots in Savannah, Ga.
Robert Emmet's Birthday.
The Knights of the Red Branch will celebrate
the 117 th anniversary of the birth of Robert
Emmet this evening at Metropolitan Temple.
For many years past the organization has ob
served this event in various ways, and the
present occasion promises to be one of unusual
interest. The committee having the affair in
charge has prepared an excellent programme,
consisting of recitations, selections, botn vocal
and Instrumental, of Ireland's sweetest music,
and an oration by Joseph J. Dwyer. The enter
tainment Itself, aside from . the patriotism
aroused by the proper observance of . the date
of Emmet's birth, is sufficient to insure a large
attendance of Irish Americans.

The First of the Series at the Pavilion
Was a Success.
Roncovieri's American Concert Band
was greeted by a large audience at its first
concert at the Mechanics' Pavilion last
evening, and the numbers were applauded
with enthusiasm. The great volume of
music from a band of a hundred pieces
overcame the disadvantages of the hall in
the way of size and acoustic properties.
The selections were from classical and
popular music. The execution by the
band was excellent, and the appreciation
of it by the lovers of music present was
shown by the very liberal applause at the
end of each piece.
The novel feature, of course, was the
illustration of the pieces by the stereopti
con, of 12,000 candle-power, which threw
the colors upon the canvas.
While each piece was being played one
or more pictures were thrown upon the
huge canvas behind the band. For in
stance, Massenet's "The Angelus" was il
lustrated upon the canvas by a copy of Mil
let's celebrated picture of the Angelus,
and Waldteufel's ."Dream of Childhood"
was illustrated by nearly a dozen different
The following were the selections played;
i "The Dedication of the Temple," Kele

A PORTCULLIS OF CHAINS.
In Contempt of Court, Yet She
Cannot Be Reached by
Mrs. Isabella Martin has been missing
for four days. /
It may be that she is only endeavoring
to sustain her queer character in the still
queerer part she has been playing, with all
the world as an audience. And it may be her
desire to still run amuck of all established
rules that govern society and so keep be
fore the public until her drama, hot from
the pen of Dan O'Connell, is presented
on a",local stage, with herself as the heroine.
All the same, she cannot be found in
town by a deputy Sheriff, who has been
searching for her high and low with a war
rant. Early last week, on a motion of At
torney Perry, Mrs. Martin was adjudged
by Justice of the Peace Barry guilty of
contempt of court. She was sentenced to
twenty-four hours' imprisonment in the
County Jail or to pay a fine of $100.
Mrs. Martin heard of this decision.

was all she said, as she shook her head and
sniffed defiance at courts and laws. The
sentence never troubled her mind a second
time, having been dismissed with a shrug
and an impulsive conclusion as to how it
should be baffled.
Then a warrant was given to a Deputy
Sheriff for the arrest of this defiant woman.
The official was told that Mrs. Martin
could be found any day at the racetrack,
where she cut a conspicuous figure. But
Mrs. Martin knew more than to go about
in her accustomed haunts since she had
defied the courts and the laws.
The man with the warrant has grown
sick of waiting for her to appear at the
races, and gave up his task as hopeless.
Day and night he* has called at Mrs. Mar
tin s handsome residence on Van Ness
avenue and Vallejo street as a matter of
form, though with far more tantalizing re
The dwelling he found barricaded
against the intrusion of strangers. Big
chains rattle behind the door as it is opened
an inch or two for the purpose of holding
parley between the besieged and those out
side. A cunning little Japanese servant
answers the bell.
"What you want?" he asks each time
the Sheriff's deputy calls. One of his eyes
peeps through the chink while he talks.
"I want to see Mrs. Martin," the deputy
"No sabe you ; no talk English."
"Is Mrs. Martin at home?"
"No sabe you; no can tell."
With that the door is closed, with a slam
ming of bolts and locks and a rattling of
chains, and the deputy continues to hope
he will yet get into the house.
"We can do no more," explained Under
sheriff Clack yesterday. "The door is
chained up and the house so barricaded
that a man cannot get inside. Mrs. Mar
tin, who was a constant visitor to the race
track can't be seen there any more. Nor
does she appear around town at all. I un
derstand her attorney gave it out that she
left town, but we are convinced she is in
her house on Van Ness avenue like a
feudal baron in his castle, and also that
she has set up a defiance to law and order."
