A WORD ABOUT WHEELWAYS.
Some Hints From a Well-Informed Citi
zen and Cyclist
How a Bide From Sacramento to Fol
som May be Made a Down
right Pleasure.
In a conversation yesterday with a
Prominent citizen —an enthusiastic cy
clist—who has taken a very active part
In promoting the construction of the
track for wheelmen leading eastward
from this city, a reporter inquired
how work on the new bicycle path was
Retting on.
"In the first place," he replied, "al
low me to say that the term 'wheelway'
should be used instead of the usual
'bicycle path.' It distinguishes it from
"driveway,* and will not be confused
with the word 'path,' which property
refers to one traversed by pedestrians.
The wheelway we have been laying out
I» as yet not ready for travel in some
places, but riders by alighting and go
ing around these spots can get along
very nicely even now.
"By the way." he added, "wheel
ways have become very important. It
la computed in the large cities that from
2 to 5 per cent, of the population use
wheels. The people of Sacramento
have probably 800 wheels, and only a
small portion of them go outisde of the
city limits. With a suitable wheelway
In the right, direction many of these
wheels will roll tar into the country—
at least twenty miles —for that is not
a difficult run even for ladies.
"The scenery around Folsom is very
attractive to the residents of the val
ley, hence it is reasonable to expect
that a proper wheelway of twenty-two
miles from Sacramento to Folsom will
be used by wheelmen from even Stock
ton and Woodland.
"Such a wheelway is now being made.
It will be temporary and inexpensive,
but for this summer, and perhaps next
year, it will be as agreeable as any In
the country.
"It is urged that Folsom shall make
a wheelway three miles westward to
Alder Creek to meet the line now build
ing, and that a cheap and temporary
footbridge be laid across Alder Creek,
to obviate the unpleasant walk across
the trestle.
"It will be urged also that the wheel
way shall be laid from Folsom to
Orangevale and along the bluff sev
eral miles to a point near Routier's, and
then cross the river to the latter sta
tion on a cheap footbridge, thus mak
ing a loop connecting with the main
stem into Sacramento. In the opinion
of competent Eastern tourists, there is
not a more beautiful route in the
United States than this.
"Once built, this wheelway will bring
hundreds of wheels through 'Folsom
each week, and we may expect to see
tho wheels increase in all towns near
by, and the roads to Improve. This
state of affairs Is greatly to be desired,
and the citizens of Folsom and Sacra
mento should act quickly and liberally,
for there are still more Important thing?
to follow.
"The driveway from Folsom to Sac
ramento must be macadamized this
summer. If It is not done, it is feared
that the coming Legislature will abol
ish the Bureau of Highways and dis
mantle the rock-crusher. The cause of
good roads would then be turned back
for ten years, because the whole State
is looking to this road as the Initial ex
periment.
"The wheelmen of Northern Califor
nia must assemble in cemventlon at
Folsom on every holiday and call
loudly for good roads. These wheel
men have just carried the local elec
tions in Milwaukee, a city of 300,000
people, and they can do much here if
they will get together. Let them cen
ter where they will get the most pleas
ure and the most entrrrr?Tasm."
Another of the gentlemen connected
with the wheelway enterprise said last
evening that the more wheels that pass
over it now the better. The surface, he
says, is fairly good. Riders are re
quested to take the left-hand side of
the road, goin east, from Helvetia Cem
etery to the district schoolhouse. To
morrow Mr. Labs will put on his roller
and smooth down the uneven spots.
Yesterday sixty-four riders of wheels
passed over the wheelway, and all but
two had something good to say of it.
The first group to go over it was com
posed of Mr. and Mrs. Morrell (on a
tandem), the Misses Richardson, Mrs.
Fitzgerald and J. A. Woodson. Then
came Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Luhrs, their
two boys and some friends.
Persons are cautioned against at
tempting to pass one another on the
wheelway at a rapid gait, but it can be
done safely enough by slowing down.
Yesterday a driver of a team and
wagon went off the wagon road and
purposely drove over the yet soft wheel
way for the purpose of damaging it as
much a? possible. At the next meeting
of the Supervisors that body will be
asked to pass an ordinance making it
a misdemeanor for any person to drive
a team upon the wheelway when it can
be avoided. Then some bucolic "smart
Aleck" will find himself in trouble if
be does such a thing.
HEALTH OF THE STATE.
Its Condition as Shown by the Reports
for March.
In bis report for last month, Dr. J.
R. Lame. Secretary of the State Board

Ifathetve In Jostlcp Henry's court to
recover $167, which he claimed on a bet

THE USUAL RESULT.
Some Tall Swearing by Chinese Wit
nesses Yesterday.
The examination of Lee Ock, charged
with assault with a deadly weapon,
was held in the Police Court yesterday.
Yet Oye testified that Lee Ock came
to her house a week ago last Wed
nesday evening at 8 o'clock, with Chin
Ah Gow, to rob her. He had a pistol
In his hand and pointed it at her and
told her he was going to rob her. Chin
Ah Gow then took the pistol and pointed
It at her and robbed her, while Lee
Ock struck her on her head with a
pistol, when she called for help. They
took her earrings and a bracelet. A
woman named Gim Fung was in the
room. Three other women had rooms
in the house, but they had gone to the
theater.
Gim Fung testified to the same effect.
Deputy Sheriff Hinters testified to
arresting Lee Ock at Brighton. His ac
tions had excited witness' suspicions
and he thought he was the Chinaman
that cut the Chinese woman at Court
land. Lee told him his name was Ah
Loney and said that he worked for Su
pervisor Curtis and had done so for
two and a half years. He explained
some purple stains on his hands by
saying that he made jelly the day be
fore and that he made it from green
prunes. He bought a ticket for Stock
ton and witness arrested him.
Fong Dep was standing on the side
walk two doors from Gim Fung's house
and heard the women halloo "murder."
He saw Lee Ock and Chin Ah Gow
come running out of the house and run
away. Lee Ock had a big pistol in his
hand and put it in his pocket.
Ah Cue was in the drug store next
door to Glm Fung's, and heard the
women scream. He went out and saw
Chin Ah Gow come out of Glm Fung's,
followed by Lee Ock, who had a pistol
in his hand. Lee carried the pistol as
he ran.
Lee Ock and a number of witnesses
swore that the woman attacked him
with an opium pipe and that he took it
away from her and struck her with it.
He was discharged.
WASHINGTON PRIMARIES.
•'Beany" Todhunter Downs Henry Gill
and Chanaes Slate Figures.
There was a primary election held
yesterday over in Washington, on the
Y'olo side of the river, for the purpose
of selecting delegates to the County
Convention which meets in Woodland
on the l§th Inst., to select delegates
to the Stajte Convention, which In turn
will choose delegates to the National
Convention at St. Louis.
The slate-'for North Washington went
as it was marked, and William King,
E. A. Moffett and Elmer Bryte were
elected with practically no opposition.
But In the South Washington precinct
a mine had been carefully run under
Henry Gill's chance of success, and by
skillful manipulation it was touched off
at the right time to send that gentle
man's hopes into the ether.
In the morning thf slate read, "Lee,
Evans and Gill." Four o'clock showed
no change, but at 5 o'clock, when the
working element had finished their
day's labor and returned home, men
stood In groups and began to talk.
Somebody was going to get left. After
all, the slate was not a certainty. There
was a dark horse looming up, whom no
one save those same workingmen know
anything about, and the name of the
dark horse was "Beany" Todhunter.
As the voting went on the talk became
louder, and when the votes were count
ed it was found that "Beany" had been
chosen by a flattering majority, and
that Henry Gill had been given the
steel. Lee and Evans were the other
delegates chosen. Everything was con
ducted quietly and good order pre
vailed.
A DOCTOR'S SALARY.
Geortce W. Corey Begins Suit Against
J. 11. Neagle.
George W. Corey, by his attorney, C.
H. Oatman, has brought suit against
J. H. Neagle to recover the sum of
$427 15, which he claims to be due him
as a balance on salary account.
The complaint is rather an Interest
ing document, inasmuch as it involves
a local institution known as the Neagle
Medical Institute. It sets out with the
statement that on the 25th of Novem
ber, 1893, Corey, who then lived in St.
Louis, Mo., was engaged by J. H. Nea
gle of Springfield, 111., to proceed to
Sacramento and "perform the profes
sional services and duties of physician
and surgeon in charge of the Neagle
Medical Institute, to be located In Sac
ramento," at a salary of $90 a month.
Corey goes on to state that he per
formed such services up to October 16,
IS'.i4: that his salary amounted in all
to $045, of which but $517 85 has been
paid. He asks judgment for the re
mainder.
CONTINUED TILL MONDAY.
Callendine, Baker and Townsend Will
be Examined Then.
L. L. Callendine. H. W. Baker and T.
W. G. Townsenel appeared in the Police
Court for examination yesterday on the
charge of robbing the street railway
company's barn last December. H. W r .
Johnson appeared for Baker and A. L.
Hart for Callendine, but Townsend,
who confessed to the robbery, had no
lawyer, and the case was continued till
next Tuesday.
LEG AMPUTATED.
Frank Needham Fell Under the Cars
and Was Badly Hurt.
A sheepherder named Frank Need
ham, who was on his way to Nevada
yesterday, tried to jump on a freight
train at Rocklin as it was pulling into
the switch to let the west-bound over
land train go by.
He fell under the cars and his leg
was badly mangled below the knee. He
was brought here on the overland train
and taken to the Receiving Hospital
and from there to the County Hospital,
where his leg was amputated.
A Load of Coal Fell on Him.
An Italian named Bocco Botto was
badly bruised yesterday at the Sacra
mento Coal Company's bunkers by a
load of coal being dumped on him. He
was taken to the Garibaldi House, on
L street, where he boards.
A THREE-HANDED JAG.
ONE MAN CHARGED WITH HAVING
ROBBED HIS COMPANIONS.
Hla Name is Said to be James Clark,
and He Was Caught on Reach
ing Davisville.
Yesterday afternoon John Anderson,
in company with Joseph Beamer and
James Clark, made the rounds of the
saloons and succeeded In working up
beautiful jags. When fully loaded
the three men sought a down-town
lodging-house, hired a bed, and then
all of them tumbled into it In order to
get a long-needed rest.
Anderson says that Clark awoke be
fore his companions, and came to the
conclusion that the latter had more
worldly goods than was rightly their
share. In reality, Anderson says he
had $45 in coin of the realm and a gold
watch, which Clark secured before tak
ing his departure. In proof of his as
sertion, Anderson showed a neat slit in
his trousers pocket, from which he as
serts his coin was taken.
Anderson and Beamer started for the
Yolo side of the river In search of Clark,
and found out that he had passed
through Washington some time before.
They reported the matter to a Wash
ingtonian whom they did not know, and
he advised them to telephone to a Da
visville officer to arrest Clark If he ar
rived there. To make sure that account
would be taken of their story, he ad
vised them to say that It was Chief of
Police Drew who was doing the talk
ing.
The idea seemed a brilliant one,
worthy even of a Yolo man, and Beamer
determined to profit thereby, so he sent
his telephone.
A half-hour later the Davisville offi
cer rang up the Chief of Police of this
city and stated that Clark had been
arrested, and asked what should be
done with him.
Chief Drew informed the Davisville
detective that he could do whatever he
pleased with his catch, and that no tel
ephone message had been sent to him
to arrest Clark or any one else by au
thority of the Sacramento police de
partment.
The Davisville man tried to argue the
matter, but was informed that the in
terview was concluded.
Just about this time Beamer and An
derson arrived at the police station on
this side of the river and wanted to
know whether a message had been re
ceived from Davisville. Then they told
the story as given above. But Chief of
Police Drew was mad. He did pot be
live in allowing any man, particularly
Beamer, to assume both his dignity and
name under which to secure the arrest
of Clark or anybody else for any crime
whatever.
As a consequence, his broad palm fell
on the back of Beamer's neck, and the
latter was given quarters behind the
grate. The Davisville man was once
more rung up and informed that it was
