Enterprising Capitalists Plan
ning a New Competing
Federated Trades Report on the
Sunday Closing of
Oakland capitalists have caught the com
peting railroad fever with a vengeance and
in addition to the proposed line between
Santa Rosa and Petaiuma have planned a
new line which, if their calculations come
to anything, will be an important factor in
the freight and passenger trafiic of some of
the interior counties.
Louis Gottshall is doing the booming for
those interested and is now in San Benito
County looking over the ground and work
ing the people of that section up to the
proper pitch ©f enthusiasm. The present
plans are to build a narrow gauge road
between San Jose and Hollister to be in
direct competition with the Southern
Pacific. The line will be about fifty-five
miles long, and the route which has been
selected carries it through one of the most
prosperous and productive sections of the
State, insuring a large amount of patron
age for the company.
The fact that there are no difficult grades
to be overcome or expensive bridges to
build will make the cost of building the
road light, and it is calculated that $850,000
judiciously expended will place the line in
running order." The road will be equipped
with the most modern appliances and best
rolling stock obtainable. The projectors
believe that the patronage of the people
along the route will be easily obtainable, as
a reduction of 25 to iis per cent in freight
and passenger rates will be the policy of
the new company.
Mr. Gottshall is now sounding the large
shippers of San Benito and Santa Clara
counties regarding their ideas of competing
roads, and finding out what inducements
will be offered the projectors to go ahead
and build. In case arrangements are satis
factory surveys will be made at once, and
the company will agree to have the line
completed and in running order within
eight months from the time ground is
Though the names of those who are
backing the enterprise are not definitely
known, it is stated on reliable authority
that Alvinza Hay ward and Francis l£.
Shattuck, president of the Commerce
Bank, are among those who will furnish
the sinews of war, and that in case the
line is successful they will put up the
money to extend the line south and build
feeders from different points.
Previous to his departure for Hollister,
Mr. Gottshall, who was largely instru
mental in promoting the building of the
Oakland and Berkeley elect: ic line and
the road connecting East and West Berke
ley, talked freely of the prospects of the
projected line.
'•The people of San Jose and Hollister,
as well as niany of the large interior towns
of those points, are alive to the bene
fits to be derived from a genuine compet
ing road," he said, "and I have no doubt
that when I have placed the matter thor
oughly before them they will give us all
the encouragement we ask in the matter of
rights of way, depot facilities and finan
cial assistance.
"The men behind the roadr r e amply able
to build without a dollar oi outside money,
but should the well-to-do people oi Santa
t_ lara and San Benito counties subscribe to
-abortion of the stock it will seem more
like a local concern, and they will take
more interest in its welfare.
"Competition is the watchword these
days, and it is possible that the line will
not stop at Hollister, but will go on south
and eventually become an important sys
The Federated Trades on the Sunday
('losing Ordinance.
The special committee appointed by the
Federated Trades to express the feelings
of the organization on the question of the
Sunday closing of saloons rendered the
following report last evening at a special
meeting held to consider the matter:
First— That we have nothing in common
with nor are we under any obligations to the
saloon men as an organization.
Second— That the churches, as religious or
ganizations, have always ■ viewed organized
labor with an unfriendly eye, and the un
fortunate unemployed (per Rev. Dr.
Weudte's sermon last Sunday) as being
lazy, ignorant, shiftless, self-indulgent aud
mentally and morally weak. So between the
two, church and saloons, we have no sympathy
for either, but it so happened in this case that
the saloon men were the link connecting our
interest with ourselves. Again, we believe the
matter should be submitted to the people at
an election and not allow eleven men to legis
late for 50,000 people on an affair of such
magnitude. The Federation believes that Oak
land, by reason of her natural advantages,
should do the metropolis of the Pacific Coast
and not the bedroom for Sun Francisco, and
will raise its voice in protest against any move
ment tending to drive any capital out of Oak
land, believing that every dollar lost to the
city means a loss of 50 per cent to the laboring
The report was adopted without a dis
senting voice.
Mioliael Collins' Trial.
When Judge Frick's department of the
Oakland Superior Court opened yesterday
the cross-examination of Dr. J. A. Miller,
one of the people's witnesses in the case of
Michael Coilins, charged with killing
Philip Boogar, was continued. He ad
mitted that Boogar had commenced to fail
physically and mentally before his ante
moVtem statement was made. Then the
doctor described how this was made.
Deputy District Attorney Church said
Boopar's statement was taken down in
shorthand, then transcribed and read to
the dying man.
Dr. B. A. Rabe, as an expert witness, ad
mitted that the use of morphine befogs
the brain.
The statement itself, wherein Boogar ac
cuses Collins of shooting him, was then
admitted in evidence.
William J. Moffatt, watchman for the
Contra Costa Water Company, testified
that he heard the shots and ran out in the
street to see what was up. He saw Collins
with a pistol in his hand. When witness
went up toward Collins the latter flourished
his pistol and told Aloffatt to keep away.
Witness obeyed the injunction, but fol
lowed Collins all the way to his house, and
was present when Policeman Banks made
the arrest.
Mrs. Boo^ar, Collins' daughter, de
manded what the policeman wanted.
Banks said :
"I want the man that killed Boogar."
'That is me," said Collins, stepping for
ward and giving himself up to tne police
Moffsttt proved the only witness so far
who saw a pistol in Collins' hand.
High School Commencement.

Alameda-Contra Costa Road.
The Merchants' Exchange has appointed
W. V. Witcher, Dudley- C. Brown and
Wilbur Walker a committee to join w ith the
committee of the Good Roads Association,
conaisting of E. C. Sessions, J. L. Lyon
and L. R. Hager. in a petition to the Su
pervisors to build a road between Alameda
and Contra Costa counties, or at least
make decided improvements in the pres
ent highway.
The old rbad has long been declared a
nuisance by farmers and business men
who are compelled to use it, but it was
only when the Good Roads Association
took bold of the matter that definite steps
were taken toward its improvement.
The joint committees' will meet the
Supervisors on Monday next, when a
large number of residents of both counties
will be present to express their views. It
is anticipated that the Supervisors will
take immediate steps to bring about the
desired end.
The Three Alleged Robbers.
The men charged with robbing Garrett
& Taggart's drugstore in Oakland were ar
raigned in the Police Court yesterday.
Their preliminary examination was set
for next Tuesday. Neither of the Ross
brothers was charged with the crime, but,
instead, was one Jacob Oppenheimer, a
San Francisco barber, who attempted to
shoot Superintendent Weihe of the District
Telegrapn Company of San Francisco
three years ago. He was arrested in this
city Tuesday night and identified by Po
liceman Green as the man who came to
the door of the drugstore when he tried it
on the night of the robbery. Earl Crum,
the drug clerk, identified tfie two Holland
brothers as those who pinioned him.
There are prior convictions against both
W. B. Holland and John Holland. The
three accused men sought to waive exam
ination in the Police Court, but were not
permitted to do so.
Wanted to Be Judge.
John Lenett, charged with using vulgar
language, created a scene in the Ponce
Court yesterday when he attempted to
usurp Judge Woods' place on the bench
and had to be dragged therefrom by the
Lenett acted queerly in the dock before
the court was in session and twice at
tempted to leave, to the great amusement
of the crowd.
Suddenly he dashed out of the dock and
up to the Judge's seat, where he sat rant
tering and apparently trying to look
judicial and wise.
When returned to his proper place he
refused to remove his hat and continued |
his mutterings. He was finally sent to the
County Jail and charged there with in
Ameuded the Ordinance.
The City Council at its meeting on Thurs- i
day evening voted to amend the proposed '
ordinance for the closing of saloons from 6 |
r. m. Saturday to 6a. m. Monday to provide
for their closing from 12 m. Saturday to 6 a.m.
Monday. A number of the Councilmen ex
pressed themselves as in favor of submit
ting the matter to the people to be voted
on at a special election, but the matter was
finally accepted as amended. The ordi
nance will come up for final passage at the
next meeting of the Council.
TCobbed 11. s Benefactor.
L. L. Burnett of 754 East Thirty-fourth j
street reported at the police station yes
terday that his home had been robbed by I
a man to whom he had given a meal and j
money for doing some small jobs about
the house. He washed a number of win- !
dows and then left. Soon af ter it' was '
discovered that a hat, a Tazor, several j
volumes from the library and a number of !
silk handkeichiefs were missing.
Yon Schmidt's Troubles.
Daniel Schmidt has sued the Yon |
Schmidt Dredging Company for $25,000 j
damages for injuries received in December, !
1893, while employed on one of the com- j
pany's barges. He was sent into the hold ;
to look after the machinery, and, becoming
entangled in a cogwheel, had his right arm
torn off.
Withdrew Her Suit.
Mrs. Agnes J. Potter withdrew her suit
for divorce against her husband, Samuel i
L. Potter, yesterday. The case was ex- {
pected to (fevplop some very sensational |
testimony, in view of the allegations made
by Mrs. Potter, and the dismissal of the
case at her request was a great surprise to
her friends.
Closing Kxprcines.
The closing exercises of the Oakland
Seminary took place yesterday, a large
number of the friends and relatives of the
pupils being present.
A number of the essays were quite I
elaborate and well read, and elicited much I
applause from the audience.
Woman's Exchange Benefit.
On Tuesday evening next at the Mac
dqnough Theater the Woman's Exchange
will be given a benefit to raise funds to
carry on its work. The attraction will be
the "Cradle Songs of Nations," which will
be rendered in appropriate costumes.
A large number of the leading citizens of
Berkeley met at Woodman Hall Thursday
evening and formally organized a Council
for the Suppression of Saloons.
After an extended discussion of the con
stitution presented by the committee it
was adopted and the following officers
elected :
President, William Carey Jones; vice-presi
dents, A. W. Naylor. 11. C. Kastcus, George H.
Wright, Thomas Addison, William Whitney,
Professor 0. M. Gsyley. Mrs. 11. N. Marquand; I
secretary-treasurer", c! S. Dunning; correspond
ing secretary, Miss Edith Sprague.
Twenty-one religious organizations in
I Berkeley were represented by delegates.
Crcßcent Athletic Club.
A proposition ha^ been made to the
Crescent Athletic Club by F. N. Lowell for
the erection of a building on the lot ad
joining Woodman Hall, to be used as a
clubhouse and gymnasium. Their present
quarters on Bancroft way are inadequate
as their membership is now nearly 100.
Owing to lack of time the relay race ap- j
pointed for to-morrow will be postponed
and instead there will be a five-mile hand- |
icap at the same time, the place being the
Oakland Trotting Park. The entries are as '

A Denial.
Miss Cora Fisk, principal of the Nathan
iel T. Whiting Kin-iergsirten, denies the
statements circulated to the effect that she
teaches the forms and ceremonies of the
Catholic Church in the kindergarten. She
claims that the little songs and prayers
which the pupils repeat are sung and said
in the same manner in every kindergarten
and in many of the public schools.
Johnson Benefit.
The dramatic society of the Sons of
Hermann presented a play entitled
'•Lenore, the Dead Bride," to a large audi
ence at Unity Hall last evening, the pro
ceeds of which will be given to the family

in the afternoon and from 7 to 9 in the
evening, and can be reached by the electric
cars and narrow gauge.
The ladies of the exchange have never
yet made a failure of their entertainments,
and the one to-day promises to be the most
delightful given under their auspices.

The rehabilitation of Sausalito, the plan
ning of new roads and the establishment of
new grades is a weighty work which has
developed much oratory and not a little
engineering science on the part of the
Town Trustees. Thetr weekly meeting on
Wednesday was devoted to a debate on a
sidewalk. It appears that the question
which side of Water street, the main
j thoroughfare, this footway should occupy
! has led to the expression of vastly divided
opinions. The advocates of the east side
hotly contended with the cohorts that held
that the west side was the natural and un
mistakable place for that footway. The
westsiders sat down on the eastsiders and
| declared that they had the Trustees on
their side.
The conflict so long pending came to an
issue on Wednesday. The eastsiders wtfre
led by W. H. Harrison, the westsiders were
inartialed by Commodore Harrison. There
! were two Harrisons in the field and the
Town Hall was thronged. Tho populace
were in earnest, but cool Constables Creed
i and Gerrighty were deployed on the wings
■ of the crowd in case of violence.
W. H. Harrison opened the debate. Bow
| ing courteously to General and Mayor
j Dickinson, who was in the chair, the ora
i tor declared that the selection of the west
j side of Water street for a sidewalk was
! preposterous in the extreme. House
! holders on the steep bill on the west were
j continually puffing up their property,
j keeping it at considerable expense from
j sliding into the bay. One gentleman near
j San Carlos avenue" had half a precipitous
j fifty-foot lot in the rear of his dwelling
I dumped into nis back yard. The cutting
! into those hills was, from an engineering
j standpoint, a fatal mistake. Moreover,
'■ the pickets of the boundary fence would
be an irresistible temptation to the festive
picnicker to smash them as an exhibition
of muscular prowess for the admiration of
the females of his species. Horses, shying
at the locomotives on the east side, would
i naturally swerve toward the west and en
j danger the lives of the pedestrians on that
! footway. The choice was an unwise one
and should not prevail.
When the burly commodore, for the
west side, took the floor he paid a glowing
; tribute to the manly independence the
Trustees had shown in selecting the west
for the footway. The Portuguese had de
clared for the west, the intelligence of old
Sausalito had demanded the west, and the
improvement club of Hurricane Gulch had
I inscribed upon their banners, "West — or
mo sidewalk." In the face of this mass of
j opinion the Trustees could decide but one
way, and that the direction where the
golden sun seeks his bed in the bosom of
the great Pacific.
At this burst of oratory the westsiders
applauded enthusiastically, while a shout
of "Rats!" went up from' the contempt
uous eastsiders.
The commodore retaliated by the sug
gestion that the gentleman who had
shouted "rats" might hunt his hole; that
despite specious arguments and garbled
representations the sidewalk would orna
iiH-iit the west side.
Other and equally eloquent speakers
were prepared to address the meeting, but
were cut short by the Mayor's announce
ment that inasmuch as the contract had
been let for the construction of the foot
way on the west side of the street, and that
a large portion of the work had been al
ready done, it was a pity to permit the
escape of oratory which must be ineffectual,
i and thus the great west side controversy
i was disposed of. The summer visitors are
filling up the vacant houses in the little
town, the Scarborough of California, and
it is anticipated that the population this
season will attain an unprecedented
figure. The railroad people have so in
creased the daily trips and improved the
property adjoining their depot that the sea
| port of Marin, with the glory of its new
incorporation on it, is aspiring to metro
politan distinction.

Mahk Hopkins Institute of Akt.— Last
week of exhibition. »
So Says Director Comte of
the Board of Edu
Money Enough Spent by the Old
Board to Have Had Them In
Good Condition.
"I have this to say, that the condition
of the public schools of San Francisco is a
disgrace to the City. Many of them are
not fit for human beings to inhabit. They
have not been even cleaned for years.
Many of them are in a state of rot and de
cay and are filthy. Some of them seem
never to have known whitewash, and it is
time that a new order of things set it."
So said School Director Comte before
the Finance Committee of the Board of
Supervisors yesterday.
He had come there in behalf of a trade
with Mrs. Weaver for her lot adjoining the
Douglas School, corner of Collingwood and
Nineteenth streets, which the school
board desires should be purchased as a
playground for the children of the school —
there being no yard to the school.
Mrs. Weaver wants $2800 for the 25
--foot lot, and Mayor Sutro had sent a com
munication to the Supervisors, referred to
this committee, stating that lots in the
same neighborhood were not worth more
than $1500. A lot 55 feet front, more than
double the frontage of Mrs. Weaver's, just
opposite, could be bought for $3000. He
aavised against the purchase and the com
mittee agreed with him.
Mr. Comte said he and the Board of
Education knew that the price was exces
sive, but they thought it was necessary.
The children should have a playground, as
the building scarcely had grounds enough
to admit of their free entrance and exit.
Chairman Taylor of the committee
thought it would be wiser to buy the two
lots opposite for the purpose.
Mr. Comte said that the school-teachers
objected to that, as they declared they
would not let the children cross the street
because of the danger.
"That is a woman's argument," said
Mr. Taylor; "when the principal of a
school wears a petticoat you must make
allowance for her reasoning on these
things. The first thing the children do
when released from school is to run into
the street. They must cross streets every
day going to and from school. It is silly,
then, to say that they must not cross a
street to the playground. I have been a
member of the school board and I know
something about these things.
"I am not special pleader for the woman
principal, neither am I attending the
Woman's Congress," said Mr. Comte,
"but I do believe in the children having a
playground. It is as important to them
as their books, for you must give their
young energies an outlet, and teach them
to be healthy as well as wise."
Then, warming to his subject, he de
livered himself of the caustic criticism of
the public schools of San Francisco, as
quoted above. Having said that the
school buildings were uncared for and in a
state of decay Mr. Taylor interrupted him
to say :
"In this connection I would like to ask
if the department hasn't had a Jot of idle
carpenters drawing a salary for some
years whose business it wasto look after
these repairs?"
"They have had some carpenters and
have spent a great deal of money, I have
no doubt," said Mr. Comte; "enough,
perhaps, to have secured a very great im
provement on thingrs as they exist if it had
been spent judiciously; but I am not here
to talk about that, but to consider things
as they do exist. I believe we should give
the children good, well ventilated, clean
and cheerful schoolrooms and plenty of
room to play, and that is the spirit of the
present board throughout, I believe."
The committee decided to hold the mat
ter over until next meetinp . *
Prof. Haikeb, chemist to the Chicago
Board of Health, says he has found the
Royal Baking Powder the purest and
strongest, and superior to all others in
every respect.
