OAKLAND OVERRUN
WITH BURGLARS.
The Police Seem Powerless to
Subdue the Epidemic of
Thievery.
THE "SOAP KING'S" STOCK.
Still Weeding Out Heretics in
4'he Berkeley Baptist
Church.
Oakland is overrun with thieves and
burglars, and the police seen utterly un
able to check the epidemic of crime. The
thieves do not seem to be after money
alone, for they carry off everything in
sight that is portable, and there is no
doubt that in one instance at least a horse
and wagon were used to carry off the plun
der, as nearly a carload of stuff was re
moved. Neither do the gentlemen of the
jimmy and dark lantern pick upon any
particular quarter, for they have left their
footprints in East and West Oakland and
among the business houses of Oakland
proper.
In only one instance has there been any
thing near a capture, and that was on
Monday morning last, vrhen Special Officer
Avers took a shot at a fleeing thief, who
had a sack of silver plate on his back,
stolen from the residence of George Faulk
ner, on Alice street. Detective Holland
blames Ayers because he did not arre<t the
man when he saw him, instead of calline
on him to halt and telling him he was an
officer.
This is the one instance in which there
was almost a capture. There are many in
stances, however, in which the police* are
all at sea.
Thursday night last the residence of
Robert Johnson at Twelfth and Wood
streets was entered while the family was
away and money and valuables to the
amount of $500 was stolen. The family
went out at 7:30 p. m.. and at 9 p.m. a son
of Mr. Johnson came home and found the
house in the utmost confusion. Mattresses
were ripped open, drawers turned upside
down, and this was the case in every room.
The thieves secured a gold watch, four gold
chains, three pairs of earrings, gold pins,
cuff buttons and considerable money.
Entrance was effected by forcing a window
with a jimmy.
The residence of Mrs. M. H. Simpson, at
Telegraph and Simpson avenues, was en
tered on Sunday night last. The family
was in San Francisco, but the thieves did
not enter the house. They confined them
selves to the basement, and evidently
backed their wagon up to the basement
door. There was a large quantity of
canned goods stored there, such as fruits,
preserves and jelly, and the robbers took
it all. They did not leave a single can or
glass of sweets.
Thieves raided the W. C. T. U. restau
rant on Ninth street that same night.
They boldly lifted the cover of the coal
chute in the sidewalk and went into the
basement, coming up inside the eating
house. They wrecked the cash register in
securing $1 80. Then they went out as
they came in.
That same Sunday night thieves effected
an entrance into Nolan's shoestore, on
Broadway, through a back window. They
turned their attention to the register there
and secured $15 for their pains.
The bicycle thieves also seem to be hav
ing a picnic, but the police appear to be
luckier with this class of the light-fingered
ones. There are several people now in
iy for stealing wheels, and at the
police station there are four bicycles await
ing owners. Yesterday a valuable wheel
belonging to Ed Pearce was stolen from
the basement of the Lincoln School. The
wheel was valued at $100.
Another Eruption.
The little Baptist church of Berkeley is
Etill in a turmoil. The seeds of heresy
sown by Professor Charles Woodworth,
who occupies the entomological chair in the
University of California, have taken root,
and at a business meeting in the church
last night another brother was dismissed.
This time it was also a student at the
university, a young man named W. O.
Smith. For some time the Baptists of the
old school have thought it best that Mr.
£rnith follow Professor Woodworth, and
the student, as clerk of the church, knew
well what was going on.
At the meeting in question he handed in
this letter, whicu brought the matter to a
head:
a? my views are essentially the same as
those expressed by Professor Woodworth I
•o be informed if such beliefs are incon
tinent with views of members of this church,
and I want action on this matter.
The members did take action, and the
■ was_ that the little church has lost
• r pillar, and in the eyes of the elect
heresy has been strengthened.
The Stock Has Been Sold.
"Soap King" D. E. Dowling, superin
tf-ndent of the Standard Soap Company,
appeared before Judge Frick yesterday on
a citation to show cause why he should
not be punished for contempt of court, in
retusing to turn over certain stock to John
< Ihetwood Jr.. assignee of R. P. Thomas.
In his answer Dowling claimed that he
was not a party to the insolvency proceed
ings of Richard P. Thomas, but that he
had bought the stock from Thomas fora
valuable consideration in July, 18S4, and
that the stocfc was actually delivered to
him thirty days before the insolvency pro
cerdings commenced.
The stock was in his possession until the
21st of January, 1895, when it was sold to
D. F. Parker, a resident of Oregon.
After some argument the case was taken
uner advisement by Judge Frick until next
Monday at 10 o'clock a. m.
Says Ladlow Falsified.
C. E. Gardner, who says he was dis
charged from the employ'of the railroad
company because he was a Populist, de
clares that Master of the Yards Ludlow
spoke falsely when he made a statement to
the contrary in the public prints. Mr.
Gardner says:
'When Ludlow states that I voluntarily
asked for my time he deliberately falsifies
the facts, and he'knows it. I did not say:
'I am employed by the People's party.
Mr. Ludlow d*id say: 'You cannot engage
in }>o!itics and work for the Southern Pa
cific Company.'
"I replied to him: 'I am or. the cam
paign and auditing committee, and cannot
conscientiously give up my right of citizen
ship.' Ludlow then responded : 'You had
better work at politics alone, and the chief
clerk will give you your time.' "

af years, has'brought suit apranist his em
ployer to recover on a promissory note for

The Irrepressible Colonel.
The «tatesman of the marshes, Colonel
John P. Irish, has again returned to the
nght against the Council because of its
making a dumping-ground of the West
Oakland marshes, and yesterday he filed a
well-signed petition with the Board of
Public Works, in which he asks that the
garbage dumped in the marshes be re
moved and burned. ,
For Selling Morphine.
Sergeant Hodgkins of the police force
purchased a quantity of morphine from W.
A. Patterson, the proprietor of a drug
store on Twelfth street, last night, and im
mediately placed him under arrest for vio
lating the city ordinance whicn makes it
a misdemeanor to sell opium, morphine,
cocaine or other drugs of that character
excepting on the prescription of a physi
cian.
The druggist says he knew nothing of
the existence of such a law.
Two Abseut Oaklanders Die.

death of Willis Chamberlin, son of Mr. and
Mrs. P. V. Chamberlin of this city. The
young man was well known in this city and
was a graduate of Stanford University.
Miss Magsrie Wheeler, a young lady well
known in this city and an only daughter
of Mr. and Mrs Thomas Wheeler, who re
side at the corner of Twelfth and Grove

last Tuesday.
All for a Little Water.
The condemnation suit of the State of
California vs. Ann J. Styles to condemn
property adjoining the* State University
and the Deaf and Dumb Institute for

ALAMEDA.
A movement is on foot to put into prac
tical operation the referendum ordinance
adopted at the recent meeting of the Trus
tees in reference to public questions to be
submitted to the voters at the municipal
election. B. C. Brown, the stenographer,
has the movement in charge. He was
active yesterday circulating petitions for
the signatures of the required 10 per cent
of the qualiiied voters, to be presented to
the Trustees at their meeting Monday
night, asking them to submit to the popu
lar vote the following question : "Are you
in favor of a special tax levy of 25 cents on
the $100 for the erection of a building for
the Alameda free library."
Before undertaking the task Mr. Brown
consulted John G. Brick and G. H. Mastick
of the Library Board, and received their ap
proval of the scheme. The vote would be
a fair expression of the sentiments of the
public on the feasibility of the library
building project.
Cut Down in Hig Prime.
E. M. Roach died yesterday morning at
the home of his parents, at the corner of
Enciual avenue and Oak street, of con
sumption. Deceased was a printer and re
turned only a few days ago from the Print
ers' Home at Colorado Springs, where he
went a short time ago in the hope of re
ciiperating his health. His condition,
however, became worse and he returned to
his home to die among his relatives and
friends. Deceased was a member of Aia
meda Parlor of Native Sons and was 25
years of age. His funeral will take Dlace
to-morrow morning and will be conducted
under the auspices of Alameda Parlor.
. Nominating Convention.
The nominating convention of the Good
Government Club was held yesterday after
noon in Linderman Opera-house. The
polls opened at 3 o'clock and closed at 10.
it was a novel convention and everything
worked out as had been planned. Voting
was brisk and the candidates were active
in their efforts to secure votes. There were
six polls arranged on the stage, and the
plan involved a great saving of time, both
in voting and counting of votes. The sim
plicity of the proceeding was its greatest
recommendation.
Annual Muster.
The annual muster and inspection of the
military company will take place on the
28th inst. This is a yearly event of con
siderable importance in the National Guard
and an effort will be made to muster the
full strength of the companies. Upon the

rata allowance out of the national appro
priation for arms and equipments.

Mrs. George Frier of Santa Clara avenue.
Benefit Concert.
The concert for the benefit of Mrs. Olive
Reed-Batchelder and Mrs. H. O. Tenny
took place at Armory Hall last night.
Charles Parcells, the violinist, and the
California Male Quartet assisted in render
ing an unexceptionally good programme.
EESKELEY.
Professor Woodworth, who resigned
from the First Baptist Church on account
of his alleged heretical views, has written
an open letter to a local paper in which he
scores his fellow church members who dis
agree with him and advocates the erection
of a new church. The writer claims that
in dealing with the recent trouble the
church has shown no observance of its
four fundamental principles — free speech,
free thought, Christian tolerance and
Christian charity. The letter is concluded
by the assertion that Berkeley Baptists
should have a church broad enough to be
in sympathy with modern thought.
A Society Night.
Social events abounded Wednesday
night. Prominent among them were the
farewell dinner party given by Mr. and
Mrs. F. M. Wilson of the Daly Scenic
Tract in honor of Miss Kate McGrew, who
returns to-day to her home in Honolulu,
the surprise party to Mrs. W. H. Kerrison
at her home on Haste street and the dinner
given by Mr. arid Mrs. Thomas Rickard to
a small number of friends.
School Attendance.
The monthly enrollment of the schools
is as follows: High School 230, Kellogg
334, Whittier 340, Le Conte 281, Lorin 241,
West Berkeley 425.
Chicago and Arkansas.
A guest at the Palmer House arrived at
his hotel at 10 o'clock. Several other gen
tlemen were discussing the wild stories of
correspondents in Arkansas and other
States who had sent in accounts of wolves
and panthers that had attacked people,
being frantic from hunger. The guest
said it was not much better in Chicago.
Throwing open his coat, he said: "I have
been attacked by human wolves. My
shirt ttuda were torn out, as you see; my
pocketbook and watch were tak*n, and I
am here, satisfied that 1 am living. I
would rather lie in Arkansas facing a hun
gry (roll than be again held up on the
streets by Chicago wolves."— Chicago

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALX, FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1895.
ALAMEDA COUNTY'S
NEW CREMATORY
Will Have Appointments Equal
to Any in the United
States.
ITS SERVICE OPEN TO ALL
A Site Will Probably Be Chosen
Near Mountain View
CEMETERYr
The Alameda County Cremation Asso
ciation held its first annual meeting at the
residence of Dr. F. L. Adams, in Oakland,
Wednesday evening last and elected offi
cers for the ensuing year as follows: F. B.
Gibson, president; Dr. F. L. Adams, first
vice-president; Dr. John Fearn, second
vice-president; Miss Eva Carlin, secretary,
and D. L. Bishop, treasurer.
The plans for the contemplated crema- ■
tory, drawn by Ross, Stone & Cahill, were
adopted. It was decided that the building '
should be of stone instead of brick, as orig- j
inally intended, and that to this end $5000 ;
extra should be expended, making the total !
co^t of the building $35,000.
The purchase of a site for the crematory
and work on the building will begin as soon
OAKLAND'S PROPOSED CREMATORY.
[Reproduced from perspective plans drafted by Eos/, Stone & CahilL]
as $10,000 worth of the capital stock shall
have been sold, but as this amount is
nearly all raised only a few months will
elapse before the Alameda County crema
tory and columbarium will bean actuality.
Ample provisions will be made for not
only the incineration of bodies, but for the
preservation and disposition of the re
mains of the bodies. The building pro
posed comprises the receiving-room, with
vaults attached, where bodies awaiting in
cineration may be kept. An appropriate
chapel for funeral services, two retorts for
incineration and columbariums, with up
ward of 4000 niches for the preservation of
the ashes of the dead in urns or other re
ceptacles will be the prominent features.
The building and appliances will be at
the service of all applicants, and no limita
tions of its use will be imposed on account
of religious belief, race or color.
Ames oil-burners of the same pattern as
the ones now in use in Boston will be used,
and bodies will be reduced to ashes in from
forty to sixty minutes.
The columbariums will be of marble,
with marble tablets in front on which will
be placed obituary inscriptions correspond
ing with their respective contents. A beau
tiful flower conservatory will flank each
side of the chapel.
Specially prepared tiling suitable for the
antiseptic treatment of bodies will line the
receiving-room, and the interior of the
cremating-room will be of light buff-col
ored brick or tiling.
The two retorts will each have an extra
outside vault door. In one retort the re
duction of the casket will be going on while
the body of the departed in the neighbor
ing retort is passing through the disinte
grating transition to its original elements.
The crematory when completed will be
the best appointed one in the United States
with one exception — the Gardiner-Earl
crematory in the Oakwood Cemetery at
Troy, N. Y.
A site will probably be chosen in the vi
cinity of Mountain View Cemetery.
OLD FRIENDS' BANQUET.
Goodfellowghip and a Fine Menu.
Speeches and Songs at the An
nual Society Feast.
Friends without number, it might be
said, assembled at the Commercial Hotel
last night to partake of the good things
provided annually for the "inner man"
(and woman) by the Old Friends' So
ciety.
At the west end of the long table ex-
Judge A. Craig presided as toastmaster.
He announced shortly after 8 o'clock that
the menu was at the disposal of the Old
Friends and their guests. Edward Hol
land, manager of the hotel, with the assist
ance of A. Martinelli, who presided over
the kitchen, had a feast prepared fit for any
organization in San Francisco.
Soup, fish, oysters, roasts, entrees,
desserts, wines and everything a hungry
diner-out could possibly expect had been
provided. Active waiters saw that all
were served with promptness. Nothing
was lacking when Mr. Craig called upon
J. H. Johnson for a speech.
J. J. Coffey, Robert Ferral, J. E. Slin
key, Thomas Sawyer, Charles Ward, E. C.
Hfsgen, N. Fass, Charles Alpass and Dr. J.
S. McCue entertained the Friends with
speeches, songs and recitations.
All told, there were 125 "Friends" and
guests around the banquet-board. Mirth
and wine pervaded the entire room, and at
a late hour good-night was said, and the
participants repaired to their homes with a
positive assurance in their own hearts that
they had been among "Old Friends.
Among those present were: W. A. Lane,
Ernest Hey mans, F. W. Croudase, A. D.
Bell, Phillip Stockinger, Frederick W.
Kauffman, James H. Eiley, J. S. McCue,
J. E. Tucker, J. M. Nougens, R. P. Lewis,
Dr. P. F. Lord, J. B. Forner, R. H. Taylor,

On the day previous the San Francisco
Board of Trade passed the following reso

of the Associated Creditors made to the board
that in the next tax levy an amount sufficient
be included and specially set apart to pay off
these claims for indebtedness necessarily in
curred in the prosecution of the business of the
city.
The Associated Creditors have called the
attention of the Grand Jury to the state of
affairs, and suggested that the jury in
corporate in its final report a recommen
dation to the Board of Supervisors that an
amount sufficient to pay the back indebted
ness of the city and conntv be incorported
in the tax levy for 1895-&5, and that said

THE CONTRACTS ARE LET.
East Street Will Soon Be
Planted With Beauti
ful Trees.
Waving Palms and Shady Elms.
The Commissioners Are
Commended.
The Harbor Commissioners have awarded
contracts for planting the trees which are
to beautify the water front, and within a
few days the work of excavating on East
street will be commenced. The first thing
which will be done will be the digging of
holes and the extension of the curbs. The
sidewalks will be made three feet wider,
which will bring the trees outside of the
elect-sic poles. The sidewalks will be laid
after the holes are dug and the trees are in
place.
As stated before, elm trees will be
planted at intervals of thirty feet, with a
palm between each elm. Around the trees
will be iron boxes painted green. The con
tract to dig the holes has been let to A. E.
Palms on the Water Front.
[Reproduced from plang ttugrtetted by Harbor
Commissioner Chadbourne.]
Buckman, who was the lowest bidder, the
price being $4 50 a hole. Each tree, it is
estimated, will cost |18 to put in place, in
cluding loam, frames, sidewalks and
curbing, and there will be 160 trees in all,
running from Market street to the end of
the seawall north. The board has con
cluded not to adorn the west side of East
street running south as it was first pro
posed until the seawall takes another start
in that direction.
At the meeting of the board yesterday a
communication was_ received* from the
Merchants' Association regarding the con
templated improvement on the water
front. The greatest satisfaction was ex
pressed at the board's movem ent, and the
association wished the commissioners ev
ery success.
The board was also thanked for the work
being done in keeping East street clean.
The communication dwelt on the necessity
and importance of making East street at
tractive to the eye, saying that it was the
first to be seen of the'city by the incoming
visitor, and that first impressions are the
most lasting. Secretary Keegan was in
structed by the board to return its thanks
to the Merchants' Association for the lat
ter's support.
The Commissioners granted to J. S.
Kimball the privilege of occupying twenty
riye feet of the north end of the shed at
Fishermen's wharf, including two refrig
erators. The rental of the premises was
fixed at $76 a month.
State Engineer Holmes said after the
meeting that the work of planting the
trees would now proceed with all possible
expediency. He said that Buckman would
probably be notified to-day to go on with
his contract, and that as everything else
would be in readiness there would te no
delay.
WE ARE NOT "JAY"
AS REGARDS MUSIC.
Pictures Illustrated Musically
Are Well Appre-
CIATED.
ABILITY OF LOCAL TALENT.
It Is Displayed at Musical En
tertainments at the Me
chanics' Pavilion.
The assumption that San Francisco is
musically a "jay" town is being disap
proved, so far as expenditure is concerned,
by the American Concert band, which, un
der the direction of Alfred Roncovieri, is
producing music for all those who wish to
hear music, and pood music at that. Al
fred Roncovieri had determined that he
would prove that San Francisco was not,
musically, behind the provinces, no matter
what the assertions might be that were
made by outside authorities.
The fact that San Francisco has to-day a
band of 100 pieces which is in size second to
but one that ever visited or rendered any
numbers in thi3 country is purely the re
sult of the local enthusiasm. When criti
cisms were being made to the effect that
San Francisco was "jay" in all its particu
lars and in all its habits, Mr. Roncovieri
said: "I will bet any reasonable amount
of money that I can pick up in San Fran
cisco a band of 100 pieces — equal in size to
that of the famous Gilmore band — and
produce in this city music such as has not
been heard in this city, and prove by the
production that it is not in any sense a
'jay' town." If it was "jay" at all it would
certainly be "jay" in music.
It was upon this sociable bet that was
based the present concert of the American
band poing on at the Mechanics' Pavilion.
So largely does charity enter into the
scheme that it almost ceased to be an ex
ample of San Francisco's appreciation of
music.
The days given to the French Hospital
and the Mondays and Saturdays given to
various charitable organizations have
proved the disinterestedness of the pro
moter of this scheme for the musical edu
cation of San Franciscans.
Lest there should be any feeling on the
part of the public that it was for their edu
cation and not for their appreciation the
illustrated numbers have been arranged.
There are no chunks of Wagnerian music
thrown at the audience in order to test
their musical susceptibility. The musical
schemes are legitimate and complete.
Last night there was presented the "War
Memories," by W. D. Reeves, which has
been called for very often. The musical
plan consists in the distribution around
the Pavilion of a bugle corps. There is a
reveille, then a call to guard, then guard
mount, the Jjand meanwhile carrying out
Director Alfred Roncovieri.
[From a photograph.]
the plan of the composer, and at the end
"tattoo." This makes the Pavilion a mili
tary camp. The calls and counter-calls
ring out to the accompaniment on a lower
key by the band. The effect is complete,
and the average listener believes thai he
has been on an army post for half an hour.
There is another representation of scenic
music called the "Night Alarm." Up in
the dome of the Pavilion there is a big
bell, which sings out its note of "32." As
soon as the tones of the bell have sounded,
the musicians cry "rire," and there is then
thrown upon a screen the picture of an
engine rushing from its house. The effect
is realistic, and the following motifs
show the various rights that the firemen
have with their enemy, the blaze.
Another musical study is the number
called "The Naval Battalion March." This
portrays an American man-of-war search
ing for an enemy, and the effect is pro
duced by a peculiar mechanical contrivance
which makes the search light seem to come
from the vessel portrayed on the screen
and search around the hall for possible
friends or enemies. Mr. Roncovien wrote
this march.
Besides the music, there is away off in
one corner a Turkish theater, and scattered
here and there half a dozen booths with
pretty attendants. Each night brings a
varying programme, and it remains to be
proved whether or not this scheme of local
musical culture shall be adjudged a success.
Over 5000 were in attendance at last
night's concert. The immensity of the
show is its great attraction. It is big —
with a size that goes with big trees and
other Californian growths. Roncovieri is
the most dashing and original of the great
musical directors, and he is cutting a
swath with his magnificent American Con
cert band that makes the sojourner from
calmer settlements stand and admire.
In 1380 an order was established at
Cleves, entitled the "Order of Fools."

IT CURES DISEASE!
The Medical Profession Indorses
Paine's Celery Compound.
This is from the writer of the prize thesis on Original Research, awarded by the
Medico Chirurgical College in 1892, and published by the American Medical Press
Company of Philadelphia:
In torpidity of the liver and nervous debility and kidney disorders Paine's celery
compound acts like a charm, restoring the general nervous system and these organs to
their normal activity very speedily. It is of inestimable value, and possesses a wider
range of action by far than any of its kindred remedies. Very truly yours,
Odessa, Del., Dec, 26, 1894." H. L. CLAYTON, M. D.
