Ex-Mayor George C. Pardee has changed
his res deuce, an! this simplr- little act
has tut a new complexion on city and, to
a great extent, county politics.
For five years George Pardee has been
the autocrat of the Seventh 'Ward. In all
that time his wori has been law, and he
carried the delegation in his rocket in a
very practical manner. Every one found
ho tried it that it was useless to oppose
George Pardee. In the Republican coun
cil of that wari he had but to raisa his
finger and hasty obedience followed. As
ttie Seventh Ward is by far the largest in
the city Dr. Pardee controlled to a great
extent the politics of ins ballots of the

fun of tne thing and being rich enough to
indulge in political warfare without any
desire for pecuniary reward, and coming
before the public at a time when the

some one to crystallize it, George Pardee
could do almost as he pleased. Th s was

Church family, who have been as power

anl as their politics are in opposition the
lumre is not easy to predict. While the
influence of George Pardee is null tied in
the Seventh Ward it is not easy to see how
he can obtain such a firm hold in the
Fourth Ward;
There are some wtio think that Dr. Par

was the executive branch of Tfr. Pardee's

rece:ved Ins ri rst setback. Jubn Towle, a

of Profebsor George Bates against Profes
sors Blr.ck'edge and Moian of the Peralta
University Academy is not the only
trouble which the pedagogues have met
with in settling tt;e;r affairs.
The diiS'. lution of partnership of Black
ledge and Koran was followed by an in
teresting little contest in which the
lortner came out second, wherein is
thought to lie the reason for his abandon
ment of the profession of tea«hing for
mining. The two prolessors did not
agree in the conduct of the E«jralta school.
Separation was therefore discussed be
tween them. Each had the same idea as
to what should be done after his relations
with the other had been severed. The
idea was to secure the bin Peralta Hall
for himself and carry on the preparatory
Professor Moran was the quicker at car
rying hi% intentions into eftect, however.
.So sooner were the articles of agreement
dissolving the partnership drawn up «nd
signed than he boarded a train for San
Francisco and secured a lease on the hall.
Then he returne i to Berkeley, ready to
carry on the Peralta school, of which he
is now the head. The other teacher ar
rived at the office of the owner of Peralta
Hall but a snort time after Moran had
completed his coup. He found the build
ing leased to his late partner, and has
gone to mining.

Probability That H> Is Lying D ai in

Oakland Offi't: San xt.ancipco Call,)
1)08 Broadway, June 15. J
A pistol with blood on it and some of
the cartridges discharged Has been found
near the Hermitage, and it is believed that
the two bold robbers who held up an
officer near the City Hall have been sep
arated. Indeed, it is probable that one is
now seriously wounded in some part of j
East O.iklan I.
The finding of Ihe pistol has been re
ported to the constables and they are try- ;
ing to find the owner, who is undonbtedly
one of the men who tried to rob the Her
mitage and shot at its proprietor a few
days ago.
The police have made application amoig
the doctors and at the hospitals and drug
s ores, b;it have not been able to obtain
a clew, l^eon Faure, the proprietor, is
certain that he injured one of the men.
ati'l believes that he is now being s-erret'd
somewhere in the neighborhood, certain
it is ih:it since the time of the attempt t'>
rob tbe Hermitage the long and the short
man have not been heard from.
Harry Crandall, who iound the revolver,
said: "I was considerably surnrisec 1 . to
find such a weapon lying alongside the
rosd. At first I thought some one had
tired o life and uteri it upon himself. I
ionnd in ;rks of blood upon the handle
and several chambers empty. It is %bu I
dog pattern and would have made >hort
work of any one it might have been
used on.
"I have reported the matter to Con
stable R >binson and he is hunting tor '.he
wounded robber. It is certain that one of
the men dropped it. af;er doing some
shooting around Faure's pine*, and who
ever it was must liavt! b?en badly wounded.
"It is not improbable that he may be
dead in some ravine near the Hermitage
if his friends did not succred in getting
him away. There are plenty of places.
within a few Hundred yards where a man
might crawl in o and be dead a hundred
years before he was found."
"I never heard such a yell of pain and
anL'ui?h in my life," saiu L?on Faure '.his
afternoon. "X know well enottxu that the
man was shot, and if my pistol had dons
its duty I would have cot the whole crowd.
That fellow is laid up somewhere around,
,and don't you for^ei it.
"The first 1 heard or the fellows was a
rattling of my doorbell downstairs. I was
sleeping just over it. mid as I rolled out of
.■«(! I called out, 'What do you want?'
Then a voice said : 'Hush; keep still; I'll
make him come down.'
'• 'I have no beds: tney are all taken,'
I said, but some one wuiiteJ me to come
down. I Buspicioned that a 1 was not
right, and called to them to fro along.
Then I heard one suggest 'hat they go to
the other house. That is on the north
end of the lot. With t bis I jumped into
a pair of pants and started downstair-'. I
went out into the yard, where it was dark,
and ran alone through the shrubbery 10
the entrance of the yard of the house they
mentioned. It has tiro doors, and when I
pot there two men, one a «-hori fellow and
the other taller, were at either floor.
"Without saving a word I snapped my
pistol, but it failed to go off twice. Tins
alarmed them and they ran. Then I saw
the third lellow. He ran west and out of
the gate through which they entered.
The other two ran around to the north or
the house, when I shot again. This is
when he cried out 'Oh! my God, I am
shot.' The two tumbled over the lence,
but 1 d.d not follow, lor 1 did not know
where the third man was. I was airaid
be might show up again.
"The next morning 1 lound blood and
footprints where they went over the
fence. Of course, I reported it to the po
lice at <>nee. 1 am sorry .ray pistol did
not go eff at the first attempt, for I would
surely h»»ve hit ali of them beforn they
coul'l have gotten away.
'If he is not a dead man pome one has
takei good care of him. Captain Fl-tcher
tola me he would notify nil physic ans
and the Reeti*ln« Hospital to in orm him
if they were called upon to dress a gun
shot wound. But, of course, he may be
ab.e to get treatment right hero in the

A and F, Fifth Infantry, N. G. C, Major
Hayes commanding, are going to have a
, grand opening of their new armory in the
Hook building Wednesday evening at 8
| o'clock.
About a month nco Major Hayes, after
; consulting Captain Poulterof Company A
and Captain Wethera of Company F, de
cided to look for new quarters. Tne Hook
| building was sighted, and aJter the floor
i had bten tested, everything else being sat
isfactory, it was decided to move in. The
place has been overhauled and refitted
from top to bottom, and it is safe to «ay
that not a neater place can be found any
where. At present Company A, Company
F, the Fiith Infantry band and the Fifth
', Infantry Hospital Corps occupy the ar
mory. It is fitted up with shower and
tub baths, and the large urill hall can be
used for a basset-ball or handball court.
\ The men are allowed the use of the ar
mory every day from 12 m to 10 p. m.
The commitiee in charge of the opening
exercises are Lieutenant C. C. Covolt,

Hirbor Quarrels and Tariff Have
Caused Imports to
San Francisco Seems Anx ou* to Shut
Out the Ntw Sub-Port
of Entry
Oakland Office Sax Francisco Call.)
'Juh Broadway, June 15. f
Oakland is in danger of Josing her cus
tcm-hfluse. The reason of this Hes in the
fact that in her customs business there
has been aito ether too much politics and
too little work tor the custom-house.
It is nearly two years ago since Oakland,
af;er much agita;ion, was turned into a
sub-port of entry and given a Collector.
At the time it was stated that the orti c
was created for a Democratic roliticiun
who had failed to be returned to Congress,
and the remit is taken as proot that such
was the case.
A few weoks airo 1 he Call called atten
tion to the f. ct that Ihe custom-bouse has
boen closed :or six months ana that not
«v-n tn« l!.i-- wns hoi.-ted o:i Memorial
day. Twenty-four hours later Collector
Jackton. who probably found iio hi:ig in
his office to inform him that Oakland
had a customhouse, appointed a Col
This morning the new Collector swept
his floor, dusted the seal, hoisted the flag,
fixed the windows bo tbat the sun can
enter and waited for business. A glance
at the r(C>rus show that so far the cus
tom-house has been rather an extensive
luxury. During the incumbency of War
ren 13. English the salary was"s2soo per
year, and Mr. English drew this salary lor
about x year and a half.
The records show that Mr. English re
ceived a greater amount of money for the
quantity of worn d me than any other of
ficial on record. There has just teen one
entry of a cargo from a fore i a; port in
Oakland since tne office was established.
On the Ist of June, 1896, the schooner
Laura May rime down irom Vancouver
with a load ot lumber. Tie amount of
duty payable was ies* than $50, and this
is all the direct work that Mr. English
wa^ required to do for the $375J he got out
of the office. Not one pound of bonded
material has ever soiled the rlreproof
warehouse built for the cimom-hou»e.
There are notes tacked on the
wall which show that two consign
ments by tha railroad passed through the
custom-house, but beyond this nothing
was done, and the Republicans are now
link ml enough to say that the place was
made for he sake of pensioning a disap
pointed Democrat.
In explaining the cause for the lack of
importation?, M. J. Keller said to-day:
"When we asked for a custom-house it
was supposed that the harbor would bo
completed at t tie same time and that
many cargoes, especially of lumber and
coal, would be brought by <ie;p-draugbt
vessels to Oakland wharves. Instead of
this, people started quarreling, with thy
result that all work on the harbor was
delsvd lor fully two years. TlK'n, again,
the Wilson tariff bill worked havoc with
commerce, and, on account of the ad
valorem duties, merchants in Oakland
found it cheaper to buy throne h New
York houses man direct from Europe.
There is no dount that when business is
settled there wi 1 be ample work for a
local custom-house."

While the real-estate market during the
past week has not been marked with any
startling features, at the same time there
has been an encouraging absence of the
dullness that dealers have become accus
tomed to during the summer months.

dizzy altitudes. But the desire to pur
chase City property seems to grow in pro

There would be much more trade in
progress if owners were not so stiff in
asking pricey. Many real-estate agents
concede that the figures demanded for
certain lands are ahead of the times,
though it hardly requires the gift of pre
science to realize that t?an Francisco
realty will in due season bring the full
value that owner* now place on it.
Much good has been accomplished for
years past in this City by the erection of
one and two story dwellings for sale at
moderate figures. By the aid of building
associations people who formerly rented
houses were able to buy homes. During
the last two years very many building en
terpr ses have been started, but lor the j
past twelve months it has been difficult !
in many cases for the owners to rind pur- j
cha e8 for their place?. This condition of
things has cot been profitable to builders, and

such a strain men are scarcely responsible for
what they do. For years the writer rolled anii

until it was a question whether he had not
better take a dose or poison and thus end all
his throubies. But providential inspiration
Came to his aid In the shape of a combination
of medicines that not or.lv completely restored
the general health, but enlarged his weak,
emaciated parts to natural size and vigor, and
be now declares that any man who will take
the trouble to send his name and address may-
have the method of this wonderful treatment
free. Now, when I say free I mean absolutely
without cost, because I want every weakened;
