MC. Chapman, the Oakland attorney
for ill, is p: eparing a brie , which will
1 c en ted by W. W. Foote. Mr. Chap
man contention is that Hi.l has not yet
had legal examination or trial and con
■ •1 nt.v has not had any trial.
it brief sets forth these facts: The
coni tution of thn State provides speci
licay ibat no local or -pedal legislation
Kli a be transacted. It empowered the
clasiication of the cit.es and owns ac
cor.ng ti> their rrstcrciive popu ations.
in .is classification ail cities exceeding
00.0 but not exceeding 100,000 are named
us ci»-s of the second c.as-.
LISS? an act known a* the Whitney
icci .i.- passed, which provides for the es-
a ii ni '■ ii t of a police court in cities of
30.0 inhabitants nnd not mo c than
100.0. According to the classification
tc*. which has never lean amended or
tied, there are no such cities in Cali
lora as are referred to in ihe Whitney
acts being cities of the second class.
Tliidiffeicnce in classification is really
butne inhabitant; that is to say, a city
nf ie second class must have at least
30.0 and 1 inhabitants. The Whitney
set >ro titles that its jurisdiction is over
cvi of 30,000 inhabitants. Although it
is i milted by the attorneys that th!s
ence is very slight when applied to
iheigures, slill it is of the greatest im
tiornce, because it establishes a prin
c.p of clas-itiea ion in absolute opposi
t ono ihe spirit of ihe State constitution.
lis being t-*e case the argument is
ma* that the Oakland Police Court has
r.o nore jurisdiction than the Stockton
Pole Court, which was declared illegal
sun time ago, and that, therefore, Bun
jan.i Hill bad no legal examination,
neiier could any legal information have
Lee tiled against him by the D. strict At
toriv, and. consequently, his trial was
i*. ;:li id void.
WW. Foote may add some argument
deane with the Federal issues to the
brie but 1 lie main contention will be that
Hil has never yet been legally brought
to ial.

Hinckley Alley Adds Another Trag- 1
ed? to the Many Dark Deeds
on Its Eoll.
Hinckley alley, dark and dingy, has j
added another trsgedy to the many dark i
deeds already on its roll, when Nelly j
O'Toole kill d herself with the pistol of a I
veteran pensioner living in retirement in
that unaristocratic neighborhood.
Nelly was a pretty woman, and if j
dressed in a swell gown could have held j
her own in the matter of admiration any- j
where. She was but 2.3 years old, and i
drink was only just beginning to make |
inroads upon her constitution. She went
by the name of O'Toole, but she was a ,
waif noon the pave of a great city. There I
is no doubi that despondency and remorse j
impelled her to commit the rash deed.
Las' Wednesday night she occupied a |
room at 19 Hinckley place. Yesterday j
morning she went into the room of a war
pensioner named Frank Locke in the same j
bunding. She often used to sit an chat i
And drink wine with the old man, who
hns but one leg and is partly ] aralyzr-d.
He demurred to her coming in yesterday,
out the woman prevailed upon him to let
her in. He sat by the window smoking
his pipe an.l looking Into the alley, as was
hi habit, and the woman sat on to- bed.
Without nis seeing her, or «-yen suspect
ing her intentions, she took his pistol
from under his pillow and tired a bullet
into her left oreast. The missile became
deflected in its c >urse and pas-ed through
the right lane, causing her death in a few

Tne two Important matters that came
before tbe charter convention last night
were the selection of citizens whom the
body desire* lor candidates for the Board
of Freeholders, and the question whether
or not tie corning Boards of Education
shall bs appointed by the Mayor or elected
by the citizens. The first resulted in the
selection as set forth, and the latter was,
judging from tie general expression, that
tne people shall nave the right to chose
their heads of the educational system.
The meeting was opened by P. W.
Dohrmann and the first matter disposed
of was the method of drawing warrants
in the School Department, as recom
mended by the School Committee, which
recommendation was adopted. C. W.
Moores raised a long argument by en
deavoring to have the School Committee
change its recommendation to hare a
space ol ten feet around all ot the school
houses. Tne decision was that tbe school
houses should have that amount of space
as a precaution against fire and for venti
lation and light.
At this point Mayor Phelan took the
i chair, and the special committee pre- !
sented two dozen names of citizens who I
were eligible as candidate** for the Board I
of Freeholders. Mayor Phelan appointed tf
F. K. Lt»n- as juujje, A. S. Baldwin as
taliv inspector and D. C. Murphy and W.
McArthur as clerks, It took but a short i
time lor i he convention to make its selec
tion, which has been mated in the fore
going. As seen, the cand. dates were chosen !
without regard to politic*-, there being six ]
Democrats, six Republicans and throe j
from other parlies.
There was considerable discussion as to j
i what the party name of the convention's i
| choice shall be. The choice seemed to be
tho "Charter Convention party. " The
naming of the bed/ was left to the law
The question that provoked the most
'. argument and several exchanges of hot |
shot was raised by Gavin McNab. At a
• previous meeting the public schools com
i mitiee recommended that the Board of j
| Education be appointed by the Mayor, j
' While this met with the favor of many, j
! there were others wno considered that ]
j with Ihe appointive positions already
i vested in the city's chief executive the
! naming of the heads of the Public School
, Department was giving him too much
power una taking too much lrom the
Tue opponents to Ibe recommendation
were on neck last night, and the opposi
tion was headed by McNab, who in an
earnest speech recommended that the
report of the public school committee be i
recommitted with the instruction that it j
should change its report no that the j
Board of Education stall be elected by
ballot by tne people instead of us recom- j
mended by the committee, allowing the i
Mayor to appoint the Board of Education j
He said that to allow this clause to go
through would mean the defeat of the
charier. J. J- Dwyer, iti a long speech,
supported McNab and went to the defense
of the Boards of Education, present and j
past. He further moved that the com- !
mittee be instructed to provide in its re
port that the selection of teachers and
principals be vested in 'he Board of Edu- I
cation and that power be taken from the |
Superintendent and his font- deputies who !
make tbe selection of these teachers.
C. W. Mark took ■exception to the sate
ments of Dwyer aid held that the time is !
ripe for attaCK tin t'-e system which per- !
mits the members of die board to be cor- .
nipt and show unjust favoritism. Move
over, noi one of a dozen is competent to
pa-s upo'i the qualifications of teachers,
M. C. Hasseti argued that the men who
are elected as S-ch>ot D. rectors are the
choice of the peip c. but thai they are the
choice of the bosse , who require for tne ;
nominations all the patronage that cau
be given.
Charles Wesley Reed offered as a sub- I
stitute that the committee be requestei
to change its report so as to provide for I
the election of boards of education by
popular elec ion, and the teachers selected j
by some system based upon civil-service
nriniiples, anil have the teachers and'
principals selected on.v upon their fitness. j
This will make friends instead of enemies
for the charter and do away wit:, the ob- f
jection to giving tho Mayor too much I
appointive power.
Mr-. L K. Burke look the position that |
it is d ilicult to apply the rule of civil -ser- I
vice to the examination of teachers. Un- I
der the present system new teachers are
placed upon a probation of six month". it. j
is this probation work thut is the real test
of the untried teacher, At the end of this
probation the Board of Superintendent', !
as proposed, can determine th • teacher's j
fitness. It makes no difference whether I
the Board ot Education is elected or ap- j
pointed, but let experts determine the I
teacher's fitness.
Joseph O'Connor thought that business I
men should look after the building of!
schoolhouses and the p.irchase of sup- '
plies, bu, let experts determine the quali- j
fications of teacher-?.
A.E. Kellogg advised that the commit- I
lee's report be not disturbet, as it was
carefully considered in its preparation.
Reed's substitute and Dwyer's amend
ment wore lost when put io a tote, and
McNab's resolution, looking to the elec
tion of tbe Board of Education by popu
lar vote, was carried.
The convention meets again this even

People of the Mission Will Petition to

The people who resile In the vicinity of
the Haight Primary School on Mission

; the school, which is in Mich a horrible
t condition that many of the pupils have

' diseases which are the result of the un
sanitary condition of the premises.
J. W. Bird, a plumber who resides at

investigations and has found that no le-s
than a dozen chi dren who attended that

j children who contracted the disease while
attending the school two have died and

1 There are seven others who are seriously

Alaska Is the Scene of Con
tentions About Salmon
Suit for Heavy Damages Against the
Opulent Packers' Association
of This City.
Trouble bas again broken out among
the wealthy Alaskan salmon fishermen,
and yesterday a suit for $100,000 was filed
by the Pacific Steam Whaling Company
against the Alaska Packers' Association,
The complaint is sworn to by Edwin L.
Griffith, manager of the Pacific Steam
Whaling Company, and sets forth tbat
the plaintiff-, and defendants are both en
gaged in fishing. for salmon in and about
the mouth of Kariuk River and in Tangle
foot Bay and along Kariuk Beach and
Tanglefoot Beach. A rivalry has thus
grown up between these two powerful
corporations that finally ;esulted in a
physical contest and threats to shoot, in
which the Packers' Association came off
Mr. Grifflth sets forth that during the
months of May, June, July, August and
September in each year there are heavy
runs of salmon in the waters hereinbefore
indicated, and that these fishing-grounds
are not susceptible of private ownership
ani art not owned by fie defendants or
any other pr vate pers ins. During the
months from May to September of this
year the Steam Whaling Company at
tempted to carry on the salmon-fishing
business in these wa'ers, and in pursuance
of that object invested large sums of
money for steamers, boats, seines, tackle,
ana the line.
It is stated that the efforts of the plain
tiffs to carry on their business were ren
dered of no effect because of the inter
ference of the defendants, who, without
right and by force and violence and with
intent to injure the plaintiffs, prevented
carrying on of this business.
Particular mention is made of the trans
actions ot Juy 28 of this year, when the
employes of the plaintiffs were fishing on
Tanglefoot Beach, aim had run out a seine
and were about to pull in their catch of
fish, when the employes of the opposition
by lone and violence pulled another seine
in the way and prevented the taking of
the fish; that various employes and labor
ers of the defendants, by authority of the
defendants, stationed themselves with fire
arms on a bluff overlooking the Deaoh and
threatened to shoot the imployes of the
plaintiffs if th?y did not abandon their
seine and desist in their efforts to uraw in
the lish. Another seine was tils i run in
near the shore by the employes of the de
fjnrtan s, thus making it practically im
possible to land the seine owned bythe
On the day fo'lowing the employes of
the Steam Whaling Company attempted
to fish from tne company's steamers in
deep water off Kariuk Beach, but the em
ployes of the plaintiffs surrounued the
steameis with other seines and frustrated
all efforts to take the heavy run of sal
mon. An attempt was made, Mr. Griffith
says, to trip and naul up the anchois of
the steamers, and to haul their anchors
and wreck them.
N dice was given by the Packers' Asso- j
ciation that their rivals wou.d not be al- ''
lowed to lake any salmon in those waters,
and this threat was carried out success
fully, for which reason the plaintiffs say
they are damaged to the extent of $100,
--000, and for that amount they sue.
