THE JUTE BAGS
Governor Budd and the
Prison Board Make
Impending Shake* Up in the
San Quentin Convict
PROBABLE LOPPING OP HEADS.
The Directors Are Not Satisfied With
the Way the Factory Has
Governor Budd and the fall board of
Prison Directors spent the entire day at
San Quentin prison yesterday, ostensibly
investigating the case of the Cummings
boys, whom the Governor recently re
spited until October 30, and some other
cases of parole and pardon. In reality,
however, his visit was to make an inspec
tion and investigation of the affairs of the
jutemill, and as a result of this visit yes
day there will be a lopping off of heads at
the next regular meeting of the board that
will bring consternation into the ranks of
the higher officials of that prison indus
try as well as into the working forces who
are under salary.
The Governor also took a ride over the
five miles of the completed portion of the
fourteen miles of the proposed boulevard
between San Rafael and Tiburon. Tnen
he acted as a soit of host to a party of
visitors from Los Angeles who accompa
nied the Governor from San Francisco,
and who made a tour of the prison. Alto
gether it was a busy day for the Governor,
but despite the onerouiness of tne duties
which he imposed upon himself yester
day, be was modest withal about it and
did not permit his left hand to know what
his right was doing. In other words, the
proceedings of the special session of the
board was not intended to be made public
In fact it was intended to be of an execu
tive character, its business being not to
act on any proposition, but simply to lay
the groundwork for some very important
Last December with a view to improv
ing the system of operation in the jute
miii and increasing its product thereby,
the iiovernor appointed John Rutherford
as superintendent in place of the former
official who acted in that capacity, and
also replaced the old spinners with a new
corps. No improvement was perceived
despite the sweeping changes that had
been made but the Governor and the mem
bers of the board decided to abide in pa
tience for a while and give the new force
every opportunity to make a showing.
But the pas^-iug of time only left matters
in a worse condition. Results only were
looked after and these were far from satis
factory. In fact the output of the jutemill
to-day is even less than it was under the
Patience at last ceased to be a virtue,
and so yesterday the Governor took a day
on to go through the mil! and make a per
sonal inspection of it. What he and the
directors saw crystallized their purpose,
and when the board next meets in regu
lar session, which will be on the second
Saturday in November, there will be a
complete turning out and over of the sal
aried force in the jutemill with perhaps a
Four cases of commutations and par
dons were also discussed by the board.
The most important of these was the case
of the Cummings boys, who were con
victed of the murder of an old man named
Narramore, near Riverside, and sentenced
to be hanged on September 25. On Sep
tember 24, however, the doomed men were
respited until the 30th inst.
Having mentally disposed of the jute
mill matter, the Governor had a long
talk with Caesar and John W. Cummings,
and was visibly impressed with their
story. It is the* general impression that
the result of the Governor's interview
with the boys will be another respite on
the 30th and then a commutation of the
death penalty to life imprisonment.
Another case that was considered at
length was that of John Henley, con
victed of murder in the second degree in
Humboldt County. He was sentenced to
life imprisonment twenty-one years ago.
His conduct since has been of the most
exemplary character. He is pronounced
to be one of the best prisoners ever con
fined within the walls of the San Quentin
prison. Jlis sentence wiil probably be
reduced to thirty-three years and some
months, which with the credits deducted
will make him a free man when the board
holds its next session.
The case of Thomas Sullivan, sentenced
to a lone term on conviction of robbery in
Kern County, was heard, but the prison
er's defiant manner did not favorably im
press the board.
The fourth case that was considered was
that of Rajinski, convicted of arson in
San Francisco. He has become a hope
less cripple in jail. Great interest has
been shown in his case by the Jewish
people of San Francisco, where the con
victed man left a wife arid two children.
A letter has been received by the board
from the brother of the prisoner, who is a
wealthy manufacturer in Pennsylvania,
in which the brother agrees to take care of
his r?lativf and his family, pay their ex
penses to Pennsylvania, and pee that the
convicted man does not return to Cali
fornia. His case will in all probability r -
ceive favorable consideration, and his par
don be made out at the board's next meet
Among the party which accompanied the
Governor to Ban Quentin were: John W.
Mitchell and wife of Los Angeles, A. W.
Foster, president of the San Francisco
and North Pacific Railroad, and Labor
Commissioner E. L. Fitzgerald. After the
party had driven over tne new boulevard

GAS COPMPANY'S NEWHOME
A Classical Edifice of White
Brick, Terra Cotta and
Expectation That the Offices Will Be
Ready for Use by the Early
Part of Next Year.
It is expected that by the Ist of Feb
ruary, 1897, the new home of the San
Elevation of the Ne^ Building for the San Francisco Gas and Electric Company.
Francisco Gas and Electric Company will i
be ready for occupancy. Already the
handsome building has reached the upper
cornice, and in a very short time the roof
will be put on, after which the work of
completing and decorating the interior
will be commenced.
The location for the new building has
been happily selected, the site on Post
street, above Powell, being central, while
at the same time removed from the din of
the main business thoroughfares.
The edifice will consist of three floors
and a basement. The basement and first
floor will be faced with white granite. In
the basement will be the stores of the gas
stove department, the first floor being oc
cupied by the public offices.
The second floor will be devoted to
rooms for the directors, stockholders, en
gineers and draughtsmen, while the upper
floor is destined for the accommodation of
collectors, biilmakers and other clerical
The two upper floors will be faced in
white brick with white terra cotta col
umns, pilasters and winaow-caaines. The
general aspect of the facade will be Ro
man, the columns being fluted with Doric
capitals. The woodwork of the interior is
to be in oak with bronze trimmings. Mar
ble wainscoting to the height of six feet
will line all the walls, and the floors will
be of fancy tiling and marble mosaic.
Work on this hand-ome new building is
being prosecuted as rapidly as is consist
ent with the requisite thoroughness, and
property-owners in the vicinity are jubi
lant over the prospect that the imposing
edifice: will contribute to heighten the
value of their holdings.

The League of the Cross
Honors the Hero's
Metropolitan Hall Crowded With
Sympathizers in the Move
CHIEF OFFICERS INSTALLED.
The Rev. Peter C Yorke Addresses
the Meeting in Place of the
The annual celebration of Father
Mathew's day was held last evening in
Metropolitan Hall by the League of the
Cross. It was in every respect a splendid
commemoration of the birth of the great
Irish apostle of temperance. The hall
was beautifully decorated with gilded
draperies and National streamers and
flags which combined with tricolor bunt
ing, and the platform was a mass of Amer
ican flags, leaving an impression of stars
and stripes amid evergreens. Galleries
and the main floor were crowded from the
stage to the doors. The greatest enthu
siasm prevailed throughout the exer
On the stage were the officers of the
League of the Cross Cadets and members
of the league's executive committee.
Frank Murasky occupied the chair, with
the Rev. Peter C. Yorke on one side and
Thomas H. Fallon, president of the league,
on the other.
Alter a brilliant organ solo by Mi<s
Mari Giorigana.President Fallon called the
meeting to orier. In his introductory ad
dress he made an annual report on the
work of the League of the Cross. Seventy
two mass-meetings had been held during
the year, not including the society's meet
ings and cadet gatherings. The society
has 8000 members and 800 cadets.
Mr. Fallon announcsd that the Very
Rev. J. J. Prendergast, V. G.. was unavoid-
ably absent, and the respected chancellor
of the diocese would address the meeting
Father Yorke said that owing to the in
disposition of Father Prendergast, to speak
on this occasion and install the officers
was his pleasant duty. He said that the
objects and aims of the League of the Cross
are such as on which all men agree. It is
established to do good to the rising gene
ration of this City — to train the boys to be
good temperate citizens and to give to this
town a race oi men that would need no
new charter to keep them straight. The
speaker was interrupted by wild applause.
"There is behind the figures." he con
tinued, referring to President Fallon's re
port, "a lesson of work and endeavor, and
a story of toil and devotion that are more
eloquent than the words of any speaker.
There is not a week in which gatherings
are not held in which the boys are told of
the evils of intemperance, and instructed
in their duties and urged to keep the
pledge till they reach the age of 21 years."
Father Yorke paid a tribute to the earnest
and tireless work of Father O'Ryan, the
spiritual director of the society, and to
the executive committee.
"You see it in this society, the largest,
the best, the most successful temperance
society in this City or in any city of the
"It becomes my duty in the absence of
the Most Reverend Archbishop and the
vicar-general to perform the pleasant duty
of installing the executive officers of the
League of the Cross. I hope you will ex
cuse me if I fall into the convention habit
if I say a few words for Mr. Fallon." He
spoke of the president's work and devo
tion and declared that Mr. Fallon was for
years the beginning and the end of the
League of the Cross. "I have it from
Bishop Montgomery, and I can say it my
self, that there would have been no League
of the Cross were it not for Tom Fallon."
Mr. Fallon was installed, and Father
Yorke remarked that the vice-president*
office had been retained by A. B. Muguire,
who, he said, bad be 'n foremost in every
movement looking to the material im
provement of the people of this City, and
his most zealous work was in the cause of
The recording secretary, T. R. Curtis,
was spoKen of as untiring In his devotion
to the cause, not alone in his own district,
but in the larger work of the general com
mittee. Father Yorke said ne was glad
to have this opportunity to announce to
the public the uood work they do.
The corresponding secretary, W. A.
Breslm, was introduced as coming from
the district where the league was strong
est, and he was installed with the injunc
tion not to spare Uncle Sara's mails with
notices and correspondence. Dr. 8. J.
Cunningham was installed as treasurer,
in which connection the finances of the
league were considered.
father Yorke added it was a remarka
ble fact that the league was organized and
maintained without a tax on its members.
Bishop Montgomery, he said, was a very
hopeful character, because he believed
that when Catholic people saw the league
grow and numier thousands they would
contribute liberally toward its support
But the one sad thing about the society
was that the people of San Francisco
never thought of contributing or assisting
the society in any material way. In con
clusion he described the aims and objects
of the league — that it is a society which
exacts a pledge from its members till they
have reached the age of 21 years, on the
principle fiat the boy trained to grow up
in the right way will not leave it in after
Father Yorke declared in eloquent lan
guage that the league was a socity in
which every man, Protestant and Catho
lic, could take a deep interest, and this
thought led him into a plea for fellowship,
for harmony of all creeds in the cause of
temperance, charity, doing good. He
"In these days of division, in these days
of controversy, it is good to have one place
where wexan look. What good has been
this religious rancor that has disturbed
the City for the past two years? Would
it not be better, instead of setting brother
against brother on account of creed, to
stand together and to work shoulder to
shoulder doing good? We have held more
than seventy meetings, and in not one of
them can it be said that we have said one
word against any member of any other
When the eloquent address was con
cluded and Father Yorke took bis seat
the audience applauded heartily for a long

were very enjoyable. W. J. Hynes sang

The Labor Council's Representatives
at the Big Meeting I'o-Murrow.
At its regular meeting last night, the
San Francisco Labor Council received an
invitation fiom the district council of the
Carpenters' Union to send delegates to
participate in a labor convention to be
held at 915J4 Market street to-morrow
morning at 10 o'clock. John Hill, W.
Macartnur and C. E. Hawkes were ap
pointed as delegates to the big meeting.
Delegates pricked up their ears a little
when the secretary began reading a com
munication from the National Demo
cratic Committee, and signed by Chair
man James K. Jones. It is dated Chicago,

tions adopted by the American Federa-

Delegate Macarthur, as a ppecial com
mittee in the matter of the commutation
of the sentence of D. 8. Worden, sentenced
to death for causing the death of Engineer
Clark in the American Railway Union
strike in 1894 in the train wreck at Sacra
mento, reported that he bad been to
Woodland to see Attorney Bush about the
case and about petitions for commutation.
He reported that Worden was under the
influence of liquor before and during his
trial; that his attorneys could get very
little information or assistance from him;
that his alleged accomplices were all ac
quitted; that Worden did not have a fair
trial, and that Governor Budd had con
sented to give an entire day to hearing
further petition for commutation. It was
reported that James H. Barry would at
tend In behalf of the commutation, and
that an effort would be made to get Con
gressman Maguire to go also.
Heavy Damages Asked.
One of the largest patent suits recorded on
the coast for years was yesterday filed in the
United States Circuit Court by Herman Cra
mer of Sonora against the Singer Manufactur
ing Company. Cramer claims that he is the
inventor of an improvement in treadles for
sewing machines and that the same was pat
ented in 1883. Regardless of this, however,
the Singer Company has continued to use his
patent without tne consent of the patentee.
Cramer now seeks an injunction and further
asks that damages to the extent of $250,000
be awarded him.
An Insolvent Furniture Company.
Judge Slack yesterday adjudged the San
Francisco Furniture Company to be insolvent.
Some timt ago the company was forced into
involuntary insolvency, DUt the order was
subsequently modified to the extent of dis
missing the request for the appointment of a
receiver. When the matter came up in court
yesterday, the respondent failed to appear and
in consequence his Honor adjudged the com
pany to oe insolvent.

LIBEL NAILED BY
THE GRAND JURY
Campaign Banner Which
Excited the Ire of Police
The Candidate Is Accused oi
Favoring the Employment
J. Miilard Authorized the Lettering
and Display of the Campaign
The Grand Jury met yesterday after
noon. vVork in the line of appointing
committees was begun, but not finished.
Frederick Hobbs, the foreman, wants to
please all the jurors in the assignments
for committee service and will .probably
gain as much success as his predecessors
achieved in a similar task.
The jury considered a case peculiar in
some of its features and practically de
cided to indict J. Miilard for libel. The
•tory is this: Police Judge C. A. Low is a
candidate for re-election to the office which
he now holds. Thursday last he was sud
denly apprised by one of the deputies in
the Sheriff's office that there was a cam
paign wagon out on the street with a ban
ner bearing this alarming legend:
C. F. LOW,
FAVOES EMPLOYING CHUfBSX.
Authorized by J. Miilard.
The candidate lost no time in finding
tha t wagon. He read the name "C. F.
Low," and while his own initials are "C.
A." he knew by the identification of Low
as Police Judge that the device was de
signed to turn votes against him in the
precincts where the Chinese are despised.
He ascertained at once from P. Gosson.who
owns the wagon, mat G. Gibb, a painter
on Eighth street, near Market, lettered
tue banner. From Gibb he learned that
J. Miilard hired the lettering and also
hired Gosson to exhibit the campaign de
Judge Low was indignant, but he re
pressed his feelings and taking counsel of
himself read the law of libel. He found
that Police Courts had no jurisdiction in
libel cases and then he presented the mat
ter to Assistant Distiict Attorney Black.
The latter was persuaded that the asser
tion tnat Judge Low favored the employ
ment of Chinese tended to expose the
Judge to hatred and contempt and was
therefore under the law libelous.
The matter was accordinely brought to
the attention of the brand new Grand
Jury. Judge Low was the first witness.
He exhibited the banner. Harry Dur
brow, secretary of the Grand Jury, marked
it "exhibit A," and J. Ross Jackson tacked
it on the wall. G. GiDb identified the
banner as one that he painted for Gosson's
wagon by authority of J. Miilard. Mrs.
Gibb, who was present when Miilard
ordered the lettering, also testified. As a
finishing touch, Miilard himself testified
that he composed the inscription, paid
Gibb for painting it and Gosson for ex
hibiting it to the electors of San Francisco.
Here was proof ample as to the facts.
Then the question arose whether the state
ment that a man employed Chinese was a
libel. Judge Low was sure that he could
prove it was a lie, and on that point the
jury did not hesitate, but in the law there
is a vast difference between a lie and a
libel. The jurjr voted at last, and so next
Friday the indictment of Miilard may be
presented in Judge Slack's court.
The story goes that Miilard, who is a
Chinese interpreter, fancies that Hong-
Dong is getting too much prominence in
the Chinese quarter as an agent of the
Police Court to investigate bonds. Mii
lard endeavored to get the Auditor to stop
the Chinaman's pay, and Mr. Broderlck
asked for light on the subject. Then the
facts came out that Judge Low advised
payment and cited authorities to justify
the Auditor in approving the demands.
It does not appear that Judge Low em
ployed Hong Dong, but nevertheless he
has found the Chinaman useful in the
work of detecting straw bonds.
