A BRANCH IN THE SOUTH.
Los Angeles Is to Have a Sub-
Association of Manufac
turers.
ASSISTANCE IS TO BE GRANTED.
Changes to Be Made In the By-
Laws of the State Organ
ization.
The by-laws of the Manufacturers' and
. Producers' Association of San Francisco
• do not meet the requirements of the organ
.: iz&tion. This fact was demonstrated at the
' meeting of the board of directors yesterday
• .afternoon, and as a result a committee,
. ..consisting -of McGlynn, Saroni, Sproule,
•" -.Me.3d and Currier, was named by Chair
. man Scott to revise them and report at a
; subsequent meeting of the board.
■ The committee will meet on Tuesday to
commence its work.
.. The' discovery of the lack of system was
': made when Treasurer Sbarboro asked the
• chair upon whose order or in what manner
; he. should pay out the funds of the organi
sation.
' ■ .'. This subject brought the by-laws adopted
" at the convention into demand. Every (
■member of the board had a copy in his'
.hand as soon as Mr. Sbarboro propounded
' ••■his query. They hunted in vain for au
. , thority upon the subject, and finally de
-". elded that no money should be paid out
...except upon a warrant drawn by the secre
l tary and countersigned by the board of
•directors.
'.;.; -While .the same question was being ton
sidered Julian Sonntag said he was treas
urer of the California Miners' Association,
•: and the system of drawing orders on the
/ funds was the same as in many other or
ganizations. "But, by the way," he said,
" ."the association requested the treasurer to
■■. furnish bonds. 1 think it would be a good
.••idea to have both the secretary and treas
'•• urer of this association give bonds." This
suggestion was adopted, and L. It. Mead
"..and A. Sbarboro, secretary and treasurer,
' .were requested to give a bond for $1000
each.
■• J. M. Davies, vice-president of the asso
ciation, sent a communication from Los
Angeles outlining a plan for the organiza
tion of a sub-association at that city to
■ embrace the nine counties comprising the
southern end of the State.
• He requested that some one be dele
gated by the San Francisco association
with power to represent the mother organi
zation in that section of the country. He
submitted a general plan, prepared by L.
■ M. Holt, and asked the association to
donate $60 to begin the work of organiza
tion.
• The matter was referred to the commit
. tee on promotion, with instructions to
issue $50 to Mr. Davies to advance the
work of the association in the south.
Mr. Scott called the attention of the
• board to the appointment of Oscar Lewis
• as official canvasser of the association, and
• said that he had authorized Mr. Lewis to
. proceed with his work.
;. . L. Saroni suggested that letters be sent
to the various firms of the city requesting
' their co-operation, and thus by mail relieve
Mr. Lewis of a portion of the work. That
• this could be done he proved by producing
■eleven signatures of membership, which
: he had secured in response to twenty let
. ters mailed Tuesday.
• Mr. McGlynn said he believed there was
nothing like personal ~ solicitation . and
. thought the membership should be in
. creased in that way.
. " Mr. Sonntag moved that the board file a
list- of manufacturers of the city with the
secretary and instruct that officer to call
on each firm during the next ten days and
report at the next meeting. Mr. Lewis
•.was to be informed from time to time of
•the results.
- Mr. Lewis said he found no trouble in
securing signers and felt very much en
couraged over the list secured, considering
.• the fact that the work had only been
started yesterday morning. "We want to
get 1000 members in San Francisco. Then
, we can do something. With that number
. there will be no trouble in securing 3000 in
• the interior. We are not received as book
. .peddlers. The people know we are work
. ing for the interest of the entire State."
' '.The following signatures were secured
: by Louis Saroni:
■ Porter, Slessinger & Co., Sclmssler Bros.,
' -Lievre, Fricke & Co., McCarthy Bros., Metro
• poiitan Watch Company, S. H. Tyler & Son,
California Bag, Tent and Awning Company,
Buchanan Bros., A. Fleishacker & Co., Myers,
] Merillon & Co., Eclipse Cracker Company.
These were presented by Oscar Lewis:
McNutt, Kahn & Co., Ralston Iron Works,
Western Iron Works, Judson Manufacturing
Company, Richard I. Whelan & Co.
Pending the meeting of the grievance
committee Messrs. Bowers, Lewis and
Moore were appointed a committee to
look into the letting of any building con
tracts to any other persons than those
identified with California.
The attention of the board had been
. called to the fact that persons were can
' rassing the city for subscriptions and ad
vertisements in a "Manufacturers' Direc
tory," which was understood by the busi
ness men approached to be backed by the
.association/ The board of directors had
• given no one authority to use the name of
the association in that connection.
Louis Saroni read the following interest
ing document:
It has ever -been thus, that in each com
. munity a certain portion of the citizens are
. active and progressive, while another portion
• content themselves with such conditions as
exist. As Wendell Phillips wrote me under
• date of April 20, 1874, ' Mankind is made up
of two classes: One goes ahead and does
something— the other sits still and wonders
why it was not done the other way." With as
• history but repeats itself. An artist to-day
•might find an excellent subject for elucida
'. tion in "The Awakening." "Eureka" has
■ -been rudely awakened from a long sleep by the
shrill whistle from a passing train of the new
■ railroad. Before her half-opened eyes appears
a panorama. The Good Government Club may
. be seen in executive session devising ways and
means of cleansing local politics.
. The Half-million Club is entertaining the
■ .Southerners and inviting them to join the
. North in friendly intercourse. The Manufac
turers' Association is active in its efforts to
save California industries. M. H. de Young
. and Tom Mitchell are to be seen arm in arm in
Borne friendly discussion tending toward Cali
fornia's advancement, while that "Native Son
of the Golden West," the California grizzly, is
seen in happy contentment feeding on food of
local interest from the front pages of the Call.
■ Yet, notwithstanding the future possibilities
'.which- this awakening suggests, there are
•among us those who, satisfied to abide with the
.result of others' labor, decline the slightest co
operation, whether by financial assistance or
by personal endeavors. The question nowjre
eents itself at a time when, for the accomplish
. men t of good, a uniform, undivided and abso
lute general activity is demanded, what reme
• dies may be provided to remind the unprogres
sive, inactive or indifferent portion of this
community what is expected of them.
While declaring myself against boycott in any
form and sustaining the principle of individual
liberty and right of action, I claim on those prin
ciples to be entitled to bestow my patronage
in veil-merited directions. And on the princi
ple that we may love the inactive no less, but
the active more, it seems as though all things
being equal we should endeavor to reward
those who contribute. their means, their time
or their energies toward the general good, and
that we should endeavor as far as possible to 1
bestow our patronage and good graces upon
the members of this organization, that those
7*. « have joined us may derive the benefit of
tneir -membership, and that those who have
hitherto remained indifferent may awaken to
the advantages and the inspirations of this
new life, new hope and new ambition that now
beset us, and I therefore move:
1 hat it be the sense of this association ; that
an exchange of patronage between members of
this organization be recommended as an ad
vantage and benf fit to the association proper

COLONEL BARRY'S IDEA.
The Lease Being Signed for
the Site of the New
Armory.
Strategic Advantage of the New
Quarters of the Third
Regiment.
Signatures of the board of officers are
now being obtained by Colonel Thomas F.
Barry to the contract with Charles G.
Hooker, by which the latter is to lease a
piece of land on the south side of Fulton
street, between Van Ness avenue and Polk
street, for a site for the new armory of the
Third Regiment. The site is 137% feet
square, and is in the middle of the block,
the frontage commencing 109 feet from Van
Ness avenue. The lease will cover a period
of ten years, and requires a building to be
erected which shall cost not less than $25,- ,
000. As soon as the lease is signed plans
will be invited from architects.
Colonel Barry in selecting this piece of
land had in mind the advantages of a
strong defense in case of a possible street
attack. Of course it is well understood
that in the event of any disturbance the J
National Guard will be more likely to as- I
sume an aggressive course than to stand ]
on the defensive merely, still, in Colonel i
Barry's opinion, any provision strengthen
ing the defensive should not be- over
looked, considering that the possibilities j
of internecine trouble sometimes take a i
curious turn. . And, besides, it does not re- >
duce the possibilities of aggressive action, j
Speaking of the new armory yesterday aft- !
ernoon, he explained his views as follows:
. In my opinion it is much better to have an |
armory in the middle of a block than on a
street corner. It is a military axiom that a. !
soldier always likes to have his rear and flank
well covered, and then his entire attention can j
be concentrated upon the front. Where an ;
armory is located on a street corner it invites )
attack from two different directions, but in !
our cage the sides will be protected by other |
buildings. It ■has been said that these build- ;
ings might prove to be obstacles as much in
our own way as in that of the possible assail- \
ant, but that is not so, for in case of trouble it ;
is quite probable Bach buildings would be |
vacated for the time being, and then we would |
have the same advantages of range and defense j
as if we were located on the street corner, or !
from street to street on one whole block, with i
the additional advantage of side fortifications >
made at no cost to us.
You see that even if we, after occupying j
these buildings as a matter of military cxi- !
gency, should be compelled to abandon them, ;
and they were as a result destroyed, we would '
still have our own armory left. Even then the i
debris of the destroyed buildings would be in i
our favor. j
Our side walls, therefore, will not need to be |
Of more than medium thickness, and consider- J
lag that Birch avenue has been closed by the I
Board of Supervisors, and, unless obstructed, !
will be used by us ■: only as a rear outlet, our |
rear wall will not have to be very thick." j
Should Birch avenue be obstructed- at Van
Ness avenue by some building, it will be all i
the more protection. This will give us • more I
chance of making the front of the building
substantial and ornamental with what money
we have at our disposal. .• ; . ■
I think, on the whole, it is a most favorable ;
location. Our proximity to Van ; Ness avanue
will give us a splendid drill-ground.
The rental which the ' Third Regiment
will pay to Mr. Hooker is $425 per month.
Should the buildings be completely de- !
stroyed by fire at any time, the lease will J ,
then expire. ./ ' _ _. . . y- •/..;/

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1895.
AND STILL NO VERDICT
The Jurors In the Strikers'
Trial Are Again Locked
Up.
A DISAGREEMENT IS CERTAIN.
Two of the Members Steadfastly
Standing Out for Ac
quittal.
The members of the jury in the strikers'
case are growing restless. At noon to-day
they will have been out ninety-six hours,
and when the court convenes they will
make a vigorous appeal to be discharged.
They assert that there is no possible
chance of an agreement, and yesterday
sent the following communication to Judge
Morrow :
United States Petit Jury-Room.)
Northern District of California, >
San Francisco, April 5, 1895. >
Hon. W. W. Morrow. Judge of the United States
District Court: The petition of the jury in the
case of the United States vs. Cassidy andMayne
respectfully showeth:
That since the case was given to this jury on
Tuesday*, the 2d inst.. at 1 p. m., they have pa
tiently and deliberately considered the matter
in this charge. That on first going out and
after dls-cussing the case for some hours and
taking ballots, so much difference of opinion
existed as to the exact wording of your Honor's
charge that this jury returned to court for the
purpose of getting such parts of your Honor'
charge repeated to us as had previously been a
subject of difference among us. That on re-
' turning to the jury room, and alter an interval
; occupied in a full discussion of the former
points controverted, a ballot was taken early
Wednesday evening and the result then ob
tained has remained unchanged, notwithstand
ing many repeated ballotings and much earnest
debate.
Jn view of these facts the jury respectfully
requests to be discharged from further consid
eration of the case. We beg your Honor to be
lieve that we have not arrived at this stage
from any want of care or thought for the
solemn responsibilities laid upon us. If we
had even the slightest hope that any change
in our balloting could be made by longer re- i
maining out we would gladly do 60, but as I
citizens and taxpayers we feel it to be our i
duty to call your Honor's attention to the po- |
hltion we have reached and to grant us our j
discharge, so that all further expense to the
Government on our behalf may cease.
We also take this method of conveying to
your Honor our respect and gratitude for the
unwearied kindness and courtesy which you
have extended to us; for the patient, clear and
impartial manner in which you have in
structed us and with which you have tried
this case, and'nothing but a profound convic
tion of our inability to agree could move us to
present this prayer and it is duly because of
this profound conviction that we present this
petition. Respectfully submitted,
George H. Stont (foreman), B. F. Wellington
(secretary), J. Bertz, C. P. Gordon, E. A. Lyon,
J. C. Diggins, J. B. Spencer, R. A. Bourne, Seth
P. Baloon, J. B. Wyman, A. E. Pryor, James
Gillon.
After receiving the letter Judge Morrow
called the jurors into court, and address
ing them, said: "I have received your
petition, in which you say it is impossible I
for you to agree. lam aware that you
have given the case a great deal of careful
consideration, and I know therefore that
you are familiar with the evidence pre
sented to you. But there is a peculiar duty
devolving upon you. That duty necessi
tates your exhausting every means
to reach a verdict and to uphold the laws
of the country. If there is any point on !
which you are in doubt I will answer any
question for you. But I will refuse to let
you off at this time.
"You will recollect that at each adjourn
ment until the case was finally submitted j
you were admonished not to talk about
the case and to keep yourselves impartial i
to the end. The case nas been very fully j
submitted to you and the court has been
reasonably careful in stating the law. The I
court presumes that you will act without I
prejudice and in view of the facts before .
I must determine that the truth can be
arrived at and a verdict obtained. I can
not therefore discharge you, because I
cannot imagine that you have thoroughly '
examined all the evidence in the light of I
the instructions given by the court. I i
know you think you have exhausted every !
means to obtain a verdict, but when you ■
remember your sacred and solemn duty I j
think the whim or caprice of an individual J
will be overcome and you will administer I
the law of the land."
Juror Wellington — Can we bring in a ver
dict that does not embrace conspiracy?
The court— Not under this indictment.
A number of other questions were asked I
by the jurors and answered by Judge Mor
row. In response to a request he read a i
considerable portion of the evidence to the i
jurors, and they then retired ft) take up I
the weary task of balloting again. At 9 :
p. m. they were taken to the California j
Hotel, where they spent the night. If no |
verdict is found to-day the chances are I
that the jury will be discharged.
It is generally understood that the jury
stands ten for conviction and two for
acquittal. Those who are for acquittal are ;
said to be R. A. Bourne and B. F. Wel
lington. The former's workmen openly
assert that their "boss" will stay out four
weeks if necessary rather than convict.
Wellington has been spoken of in the same
category, and his wife evidently knew he
would vote lor acquittal. She was around
the court yesterday asking when the jury
would be discharged. When told that
they were locked up for the night she was
very much disappointed.
"How does the jury stand?" she asked,
and she was told that it was generally be
lieved that they stood ten for conviction
and two for acquittal. She broke out,
"Isn't my husband for acquittal ?" When
told thathe was supposed to belong to the
minority she laughed and went away.
THE BARBERS' UNION.
The Committee Frames an Agreement
to Close All Shops at 8 P. M.
A meeting of the Barbers' Union com
mittee was held at 128J.£ O'Farrell street
last evening to devise ways and means and
to discuss the advisability of seeking the
co-operation of the Federated Trades to
assist them in their movement of framing
an ordinance to close the shops of the city
at 8 p. m.
An agreement was decided upon which
will be submitted at the next regular meet
ing of the Barbers' Union Tuesday night
for acceptance or rejection. Following is
the agreement:
"With malice toward none, but charity for
all." We, the undersigned, barber-shop propri
etors of San Francisco, realizing that the fur
ther lengthening of our already long hours of
labor, if uniformly established, is neither a
public necessity nor a private profit, but is, on
the other hand, a great injustice alike to our
selves-and families, to our employes and their
families and a needless expense to every pro
prietor as well, and, believing the interests of
all will be advanced with no inconvenience to
the public, we hereby a^ree to close our places
of business at 8 P. m. on all weekdays except
Saturday and the evenings preceding legal
holidays.
If the foregoing agreement is accepted
by the union it will then be submitted to
the proprietors of barber-shops throughout
the city, both union and non-union, for
their signatures. _
FIVE AXE SUSPENDED.
Insurance Companies and Agents Are
losing Heavily in Nevada—Re
sults of the Kate War.
Four insurance companies sent in their
notices of withdrawal from the Board of
Underwriters yesterday.
As a result of the war among the insur
ance companies rates have been suspended
| in the cities of Pasadena, San Jose, Mis
soula, Mont., and in Alameda County. At
Reno, Nov., Bender & Fish elected to keep
the Home and Phoenix companies as
! against board . companies, including the
Royal, Hartford, North British and others,
The board companies went into a new
| agency and fought for their business. The
result was that Bender and Fish lost about
half of their business and wrote what they
retained at 50 per cent cut rates.
The board companies cut the rates 50 per
cent on what they retained of their own
lines, the profit going to the people and
the companies and agents losing heavily.
A general suspension of rates is looked for
soon.

THE HUNTINGTON WARRANT
It Will Be Served if the Railroad
Magnate Gets Here in
Time.
United States Marshal Baldwin
Says He Is No Respecter
of Persons.
The Huntington case has caused consid*
j erable comment around the corridors of
the Appraisers' building. The strikers
are indignant over the idea of the railroad
magnate escaping trial and sarcastically
remark, "There is one law for the rich
and another for the poor." The general
i impression all along seems to have been
j that Huntington would never be brought
to trial, but still everybody thought he
would at least be arrested. Should he ar
rive here within the next few days and no
I instructions from Attorney-General Olney
I come in the meantime, he will have to un-
I dergo the indignity of appearing in the
j United States District Court and giving
j bail. The chances are, however, that he
I will remain away until the storm is over.
"The indictment is in force," said United
| Sttates District Attorney Foote yesterday,
i "and as soon as Mr. Huntington arrives it
I will be served on him. "When he will get
I here I don't know, but I think it is a moral
I certainty that it will be in the near future.
I have recrived no instructions from the
! Attorney-General, and what he may or '
| may not do is none of my business". If
j any instructions arrive they will, of course,
receive due consideration. That is about
I all there is to the matter."
"I am no respecter of person s when I
have a duty to perform," said Marshal
Baldwin. "Were Mr. Huntington to ar
j rive in San Francisco to-night t would at
| once serve the warrant upon him. But he
I is not within my jurisdiction, and all I
i can do is to await his arrival. It is not
i within my jurisdiction to send on to New
I York to have the warrant served, but, of
: course, it could be done at a large expense.
I I can tell you this— that if the warrant is
| in force when Huntington arrives here I
I will lose no time in serving it."
"Why do you not send a copy of the in
dictment and a warrant to New York and
have Huntington arrested there and for
: warded to San Francisco?" was asked of
the District Attorney.
"Because," answered he, "the expense
would be very great, and what is the use of
going to all that trouble when Mr. Hunt
ington will shortly be out here?"
"Accustomed to Bite Mankind."
Judge Sanderson yesterday gave judgment
for $200 in favor of John H. Randolph, who
had sued Maurice P. Healey for $200 damages
for injuries received from the teeth of a dog or
dogs. Randolph paid that Healey was the
keeper of "two certain vicious dogs which were
accustomed to bite mankind," and that they
bit his (plaintiff's) leg in several places. The
judgment was without costs.
Private oyster beds in the upper Vir
ginia waters of the Chesapeake have been
successfully protected against oyster
thieves by a simple but ingenious device.
The owner of the beds, sixteen acres in
area, crossed them in two directions with
five-eighths of an inch wire secured to
posts at tne point of intersection. Both
wires and posts are invisible, even at iow
tide. The oyster pirate that attacks the
lied is sure sooner or later to lose his
dred^ci by having it entangled in the wire,
and thefts Are rare.
VINING TO BE ARRESTED
Sutro Tells the Grand Jury That
He Will Swear Out
Warrants.
JAMES D. PAGE IS US DANGER.
The Ferry Foundation Scandal to Be
Thoroughly Investi
gated.
Mayor Sutro was called before the Grand
Jury yesterday, and the members asked
him why he had not caused the arrest of
the railroad officials for illegally tearing up
O'Farrell street.
The Mayor said it had been due to his
failure to obtain legal advice, but before
leaving the jury-room he said he had at
last secured the necessary counsel and that
he would swear out warrants this morning
for the arrest of E. P. Vining, H. H. Lynch
and E. R. Thomason for illegally tearing
up O'Farrell street. The Grand Jury will
take no further steps unless Mayor Sutro
fails to have the men arrested. In that
case the jurors will offer a presentment to
the Police Court against the accused men.
Supervisor Dimond was lirst before tne
Grand Jury. He had spoken to several of
the jurors about the street matter, and they
summoned him to tell what he knew of tbe
case. He outlined the streetcar troubles
and the action of the solid eight in the
Supervisors' chambers. He also referred
to the flagrant violation of the ordinance
by the Market-street system on O'Farrell
street, and otiicially drew the attention of
the jurors to the fact that Mayor Sutro had
done nothing to the railroad officials for
their violation of the law. The jurors hur
riedly summoned Mayor Snt-o, but had to
wait patiently an hour for his arrival.
When Mayor Sutro entered the room he
was asked by Foreman Gagan why he had
not taken steps against the streetcar com
bine. He replied it was no simple matter
to cause the arrest of persons without as
certaining the rights he had under the
law. He said he had called on City and
County Attorney Creswell, who replied
that he was not the proper Derson to give
advice as it was a criminal charge and Dis
trict Attorney Barnes should be consulted.
Mayor Sutro said he then sent word to Dis
trict Attorney Barnes several times, and
the only answer he got was that Barnes
could be found in his office if the Mayor
wanted to see him as he did not consider
it his duty to act as the Mayor's legal ad
viser.
Juror Mayer asked Mayor Sutro if he
had not entered into a combination with
his enemy, the Market-street Company, so
that he would not interfere with their
doings provided the members of the
"octopus" would not interfeie with him
in building his electric-car line from Cen
tral avenue to Sutro Heights.
This brought forth some violent lan
guage from the Mayor, who entered into a
long tale of woes he had suffered at the
hands of the "octopus," even in Nevada.
He then stated that he would never form
any combination with the railroad. He
agreed to have warrants issued for the ar
rest of the trespassers on O'Farrell street.
Upon this statement he was excused and
the Grand Jury adjourned.
Judge Levy and Cashier Hufschmidt of
the Humboldt Savings Bank were before
the Grand Jury yesterday to give testi
mony in regard to charges against ex-Dis
trict Attorney James D. Page, who is al
leged to have embezzled moneys belonging
to an insane patient at the Agnews Asy
lum, over whose estate Page had acted as
agent. The inquiry into the matter was
not completed.
"Jack McNamara, bailiff in Judge
Campbell's court, was before the jury to
give evidence in regard to the acceptance
of the straw bonds in the case of Mrs.
Fletcher, who recently fled from the city
to avoid prosecution on a charge of obtain
ing money under false pretenses.
The grand jurors hoped to be able to ad
journ in two weeks, but from present ap
pearances the body will be in session for
over a month yet. Foreman Gagan is de
termined to thoroughly investigate every
thing of public welfare where there seems
to have been any jobbery. In a few days
the jury will begin an Investigation of the
ferry foundation. There has been so much
talk on both sides about the strength of the
foundation that the Grand Jury has de
cided to go to the bottom of the matter.
The local Grand Jury will not take up the
matter of the legislative combine, which
the alleged exposure of "Young Dutchy"
has made more prominent, unless the Sac
ramento Grand Jury refuses to act. Even
in such a case the local Grand Jury can
only take steps if they can secure evidence
that the members of the combine com
mitted any indictable act in this city and
county. It has no jurisdiction over what
transpired in Sacramento.

Government authorities, as well as by phy
sicians generally, has not deterred manu
facturers of such powders from foisting
them on an unsuspecting public. Follow
ing is a partial list of the alum powders
found in the stores:
"Calumet," "Chicago Yeast," "Kenton,"
"Gram's Bon Bon," "Hotel," "Taylor's One
Spoon, "Climax," "Snow Puff," "Snow Ball,"
"Giant," "Milk," "Crown," '"Unrivaled, "Silver
Star," "Davis' O. X.," "Forest City," "Mon
arch," "K. C," "Loyal," "Manhattan," "Crys
tal," "Hatchet," "Home," "Echo," "Perfec
tion," "Rocket," "Town Talk," "Vienna,"
"White Rose," etc.
It is safe to reject all brands sold with a
prize. All powders sold at 25 cents or less
a pound are sure to be made of alum. Dr.
W iley, the Government chemist, in his offi
cial examination of baking powders at the
World's Fair, threw out all "alum pow
ders," classing them as unwholesome.
SHE WAS STARVING.
Mrs. Ida Sullivan Faints on the Street
From Weakness and Lack of
Food.
The spectacle of a middle-aged woman
falling in a faint near the corner of Eddy
and Leavenworth streets attracted quite a
crowd yesterday afternoon. Those who
gathered about her prostrate form paid lit
tle attention to the incident until they
were informed that the woman had col
lapsed by reason of exhaustion caused by
starvation.
When taken to Mrs. Boothby's restau
rant near by the woman said that her name
was Mrs. Ida Sullivan and that she re
sided at the corner of Third and Hunt
streets. She arrived in this city from Port
land a few weeks ago with the hope of se
curing employment of some kind.
"I have suffered frightfully," remarked
Mrs. Sullivan. "My health is very poor
and owing to a lack of money I was unable
to procure such things as I needed to sus
tain my strength. I could find no employ
ment and the few cents I had when I ar
rived here soon disappeared. I tried to se
cure work in a restaurant but failed. After
repeated failures to get anything, and be
ing unwilling to beg, I went to my room to
die."
Mrs. Sullivan made the almost incredible
statement that she had eaten nothing for
four days. Dr. W. 0 Wilcox, who was
subsequently called, pronounced her case
one of physical exhaustion clearly due to
prolonged fasting. Her face was wan and
haggard and her frame was emaciated to a
frightful degree. She is now* being cared
for by Mrs. Boothby. General McComb
will cause her removal to a hospital to-day
for treatment.
