MAYORSCHMITZ, JAIL SAN FKANCISGO'S CHIEF RE MANDED TO SHERIFF'S CARE. San Francisco—"No bail for Eugene Schmitz," the convicted mayor of San Francisco, was the ruling made by Judge Frank H. Dunne, in the ap plication made by the mayor's counsel that he be given his liberty under ond pending sentence, which court ill pronounce on June 27. Judge Dunne adopted as his own the stand of the prosecution that in the es of the law the mayor is no dif ferent from any other prisoner on whom a jury lias set the brand of felony. Judge Dunne then called the sheriff before him and said that Schmitz was not to be allowed his liberty, but was be confined in jail unless upon or ders of court. Former Judge J. C. Campbell, the mayor's chief counsel, made the formal motion for the admittance of his client to hail on the strength of an affidavit in which the mayor says that by rea son of having been compelled to give almost his whole time and attention to his trial for the last four weeks, pub lic business requiring his attention has een delayed, and there is now a large amount of it pending and undetermin ed and requiring his immediate atten tion. Schmitz "Ordinary Citizen." District Attorney Langdon, in a brief speech, opposed the motion for bail. He said that Schmitz, convicted of a felony, appeared before court, not as a mayor of San Francisco, but as an ordinary citizen, and possessing no extraordinary rights. In a counter af fidavit, which he read, he denied the allegations of the mayor as to public matters requiring the personal atten tion of the mayor. Mr. Langdon reminded the court that s the San Francisco charter provides that "So long as the mayor is tern porarily unable to perform his duties, member of the hoard shall be chosen president pro tern, to act as mayor." was not necessary that Schmitz should perform any of the duties spec! tied in his affidavit. Mayor Schmitz sat without the be trayal of any emotion during these proceedings. - j e Must Stay in Jail by C-rder of the ; Judge—Mayor Pleads Press of Work —Attorney Langdon Insists Defend ant Appears Before Court as Would Any Ordinary Citizen. SCHMITZ MAY GET BAIL. Mayor Has Wide Discretion After June 27. A radical change in the executive branch of San Francisco's government is contingent on developments in the ase of Mayor Schmitz, who is tem porarily incapacitated by reason of his imprisonment in the county jail. The date for the passing of sentence on Mayor Schmitz in the extortion cases, on which he has been convicted, has been set for June 27. Prior to that date he can not possibly procure bail, according to the decision of Judge Dunne yesterday, but the law provides that after the judgment has been passed, the matter of allowing bail is discretionary with any magistrate hav ing jurisdiction. Consequently, if jttdg ment is passed on the date set, Mayor Schmitz will have ground for a new application for bail, and his request may run the gauntlet, not only of the 12 judges of the superior court, but of the appellate justices and justices of the policy courts as well. Whether Mayor Schmitz will ask for sentence on June 27 or ask for a continuance has not been sated by his attorneys, This has made it impossible for the prosecution to plan its action in this regard. SUBWAY IS RUINING BUILDING Cracks Begin to Show in New York Courthouse. New York's $2,000,000 criminal court building is in danger of collapse, and Public Works Commissioner Thomp son has appointed a committee of en gineers to suggest means of making it safe.

The battleships Connecticut and Al abama, in command of Rear Admiral R. D. Evans, were totally "destroyed" while passing thi-ough the narrows on their way from the Jamestown exposi tion to the New York navy yard. Ad ' T,iral Evans - who evidently had not been apprised of the war game which has been going on at the narrows for a week past, was a much amused man at the sudden roar of the guns. He rushed to the bridge of the Con necticut and gazed at one of the forts and then at the other. One of his of ficers enlightened him about the sham "war" between the forts named by tegular coast artillerymen and national guardsmen and small boats manned by regulars representing a hostile fleet, the purpose of which was to test the alertness of the guardians of the sea approach to New York city. The officers at Forts Hamilton and Wadsworth learned front Fort Hancock at Sandy Hook that two real battle ships were passing in the hook. It was jokingly decided to "destroy" them, and the forts' "gunners" turned out accordingly.- The fog was dense, nd the Alabama got within 2000 yards of Fort Wadsworth before being seen. The Connecticut was about 500 yards stern as the two mortars were fired at the two battleships. Presently it was announced at the forts that the battleships had been sunk. Neverthe less the 12 and 6 inch guns were used and the result was double destruc tion. Hastily the suppositious mines in the narrows were exploded and for the third time the Connecticut and Ala ama were annihilated. The war game s now ended and New York was saved front "capture."
