towboat was alongside and there was a
great strain on the hawsers. The officers
on the Au- tralia seemed to think that the
vessel would be got of! and that as ail the
after holds were water tight the donkey
engine would be able to keep the forehoid
clear until the vessel was docked. Accord
ing to them the chances of getting tha
vessel off are good.

A dog chasing a diver was the principal
attraction at Meiggs wharf yesterday.
Tne animal seemed to be a cross between
a water spaniel and a collie and was a
splendid swimmer. He went alter tne
bird in a businesslike manner and chased
it right up against the pilot-boat Gracie
8. When the dog came to close quarters
the diver would peck at him, and when
pushed would dive. The dog would pad
dle around until it came up again and
than make a fresh start. Finally the
diver started oat to sea and the dog after
it. Then everybody yelled, "Save the
dog." J. Robinson and Tommy Crowley
got into a boat, and alter a hard pull
caught the dog and pulled him aboard.
He was too tired to right, but when the
beach was reached he jumped ashore,
barked his thanks to the boatmen and
then started up Powell street on the run.

Testa Made on the Electric Line on
Weit Mission Street
Fourteen devices for preventing loss of
life by contact with electric-cars were
tried yesterday on West Mission street in
the presence of Superintendent Vining of
the Market-street system and a commutes
from the Board of Supervisors.
The tests were made in accordance with
a resolution of the board passed some time
ago requiring the electric-cars to be pro
vided with life-saving devices. All the
tests were unsatisfactory from the fact
that the cars, fourteen in number, were
run at such a high rate of speed that the
wood and iron dummy supposed to repre
sent a human being was strucK with suffi
cient force to have caused death had the
victim been of flesh and blood.
The inventors all declared against the
fairness of the tests, but the Supervisors
will look the matter over at a special
meeting and try to find a device that will
be less destructive than actual contact
with the cars.
Among those whose inventions received
a so-called test was John Craig, who re
sides on the southwest corner of Twenty
fourth and Chattanooga streets. He says
his fender was not given a fair "show," as
the railroad people would not permit him
to lower it to an elevation just above the
level of the track. Otherinventors register
the same kind of complaint.

Last July, when the position of Na

One oi the prize-winners in the recent
wheelman's parade was a Mrs. Hartman,
who received a toilet set for the best
lady's decorated bike. It was not only
well decorated, but oddly rigged up as
well, ana represented a schooner under
full sail. Not a trim and jaunty yacht nor
a merchant coaster with a rough exterior
and an honest heart within. It was a low,
rakish craft of the Spanish Main variety.
One of the kind that once lay crouching in
some reedy lagoon in wait for some lum
bering treasure-ship nomeward bound to
fair Castile, and the ingots of gold she
carried were the booty of the buccaneers.
That bike was indeed a pirate, and the
black flag at her masthead needed no
X ray to discern the skull and crossbones
The lady who steered tne Captain Kidd
craft was dressed in the regulation bloomer
toes of the peaceful shore, but on her
breast she bore the skeleton insignia of
her vessel's dreadful calling. In and out
amung the wheels of a more peaceful pro
fession she cruised, first on the wind, then
braced sharp up, and again running free
before the wind with sheets slacked well
out, wing and wing.
When the other bikes saw the Red
Rover — that was her norn de marine —
bearing down upon them they wheeled
oat of the way, and escaped with their
crews unthrown and their tires unp'unc
It was well they did so, for that outfit
was piratical from machine to rider. She,
or he, rather, was Captain H. Hartman'
formerly in the Chilean naval service. He
was in charge of a torpedo station during
the last revolution in that country.
He also acted in the capacity of a spy
against the Government forces and a num
ber of times went through great perils in
disguise. Consequently, taeTa an adept as
an impersonator, especially in the part of
the female. In a spirit of adventure and
humor the Captain donned the bloomers
and aboard of his schooner-bike was a
lady and a graceful, though piratical, one.
Last evening Captain Hartman received
bis prize from the fair hands of Miss
(Trilby) Crane at the close of the perform
ance at the Columbia and the Red Rover
went out of commission.
The other twenty-nine prizes won at the

Allegations That Commis

THEY ASK FOR JURY TRIAL.
Questions Involved Will Be Brought
Before Both State and Federal
Attorney Alfred Clarke is about ready to
file twenty-Ove damage suits against the
Police Commissioners, The complaints
are all by policemen who have been dis
charged during the past six years, and the
claim is that, pursuing the line of the
Gunst decision, the Police Commissioners
have no right to discharge policemen, then
business being limited to hiring them and
making regulations for their government.
"The cases will be brought in the State
courts and in the United States tribunals
simultaneously," said Attorney Clarke
yesterday, "so as to get the widest possi
ble range and opportunity for the men
who have been unfortunate enough to lose
The material averments of the com
plaints are all alike, being based on the
constitution of the United States. After
alleging in each case that the discharged
policeman was a citizen, "pursuing the
calling, livelihood and occupation of a
police officer," the complaints continue as
That said John Doe had thus secured a use
ful, honorable and lucrative employment and
an assured means of livelihood (conditional on
good behavior) and a fair prospect of a pension
in iiis old age, all of which was of great value
to said John Doe, which livelihood and pen
sion were protected by his citizenship and the
said fourteenth article of the United States
constitution against arbitiary spoliation by
defendants herein named.
That his deportment in his said office was
uulformly good; and defendants, acting in the
name and under color of the authority of this
State, on the day of , 189—, wrongfully
and arbitrarily removed said John Doe from
his said office, in violation of said fourteenth
article of the United States constitution, with
out due process of law, under the authority of
Hill's case, 7 Cal., 102.
That said case has been relegated to oblivion
by the fourteenth article of the United States
The claim of the plaintiffs is that the
only cases against the view held by them
were decided either before tne adoption of
the fourteenth amendment, as in the Hills
case, or that "the later decisions went off
on points without reference to the four
teenth amendment, the attention of the
court not having been called to the bear
ing of the amendment."
The section of the amendment relied on
says that "no State f hall deprive any per
son of life, liberty or property, without due
process of law." There are a number of
decisions that "a man's right to follow his
vocation is a part of his liberty," which
no man can deprive him of without trial
by jury, etc., which is a part of the "due
precess of law" meant by the amendment.
Policemen are much interested in the
case, for if the law is broken down there
can be no more star-chamber trials and no
more loss of situation without trials in the
courts. - _^_^^________

first meeting in November, Instead of in
May and November.

Swedish Political Club's Picnic.
The sixth annual day and moon light picnic
will be held to-day at Shell Mound Park by the
Swedish-American Political Club of this City.

of Swedes among its members, and this picnic
is expected to draw a large crowd of Scandina

case every time the club has held its outings
in the past. Dancing will continue until 11
o'clock p. m. The admission Is only twenty
five cents, children free. A jolly time is prom
ised to everybody.

If your tea is good, it is
cheap; if it is not good, it
is dear, no matter what you
pay for it — you had better
drink water. .
But good tea is better
than : water sometimes, be-
cause it tastes good, and
whatever tastes good makes
the ; stomach work right.
So good tea — Schilling's
Best — is cheap. • ';..'.
