NO LONGER IS OAKLAND "JAY" The HeDSchels Were Nearly Overcome by Their Reception. Manager Fine Brakes a Record as Well as a Large Haul. Nothing "Uncertain About a Really Good Thing That Has Merit. Oakland Office Pax Fraxcisco Call, yiS Broadway, Nov. 16". ) Oakland 13 not a "jay" town. It is not primitive or indifferent to a good tiling v hen it fees it. 1: is a select 'city, without a doubt, and , it is cr lical, nut it is not quasi-metropoli i :n:i or * jay." When meritorious things Av"£ ; resented it can appreciate, and wi 1 willingly put out its dollars for them. I is true that when peregrinating aggreca tions or soloists come along with a bor rowed or an assumed reputation Oakland stays at home, and the performers might as we.l do wise. All this is suggested Dy the visit of the Hensc el* a few nights ago. Th" Henschels are of course a "good show." They can command a pood price, and they deserve it. When the ma ter of vi»itinir Oakland was bru^ched to them they were inclined to frown on a percentage induce ment. They were Drolably thinking of how much less than expenses has been the "percentage" lately of some well-known basaball teams. "Oakland is such an uncertain town, you know," they said to Manager Will Fine, ho was trying to secure the attrac ti''ii. Fine could no' deny it, bt'.t lie al«o knew from experience that ii was also a '•certain" town in some directions, so the matter hung fire. Fine thought of the : ood things that had been toOtkiar.d and of how they had been patronized and he thought of the bad things that had been offered over h r- nt d how they had been ignored. He thought of the two celebrated Mine. Trebelh concerts, when the F.r- Congregational Church wa» so full that the anterooms were cro<*d>l and ttir madam's beer bottles were discovered. And the result of all ih s t anting was to proDo*e a guarantee instead of a contin gen fee. Ah! that was business. So a certain sum was oaid for the Hetuchei attraction an . the eventful night arrived. The advance sale was good, but here are all kinds of rival musicians ami musical "savages" an<i professional cii ics in thi cit3% and Fine was not very muc encouraged. A-i hour before the door* opened the crowd b-fsan to assemble and i r 'lid not stop assembling until the church was a;ked. It wa« lrebe.li over again — thout the b>-er bott.es. Wnen the Hen-cijels appeared they ifced as i they wouid like to faint. They gnzed at about twelve hundred faces. And this was O-kland. "the town that is so uncertain, you know." It was a g;ea - concert; there was a lot of appiau-r. The Henschpls env* one of 1 heir best show* and everybody was satis fied. Will Fine was more than satisfied. He paid the 11 -i ran tee with the greatest pleas ure and holds the record fur having mad-» more than his principals as *\el. a- m > r e than has ever b-'en made at one event by cn 1 . 1 Iccal manager. Oakland is not a jay town— at least Wil: Fine says it -a not. A DOUBLE-DECKER'SWAY A Laundry Farm Car Is the Cause of Terror and Fun. The lone Passenger on. the Eoof Had to Do Monkey's Tricks. Oakland Office San Francisco Call.) !K»8 Broadway, .Not. 16. f A cnron the Laundry Farm road jumped the tracK this afternoon and ran nearly 100 feet before it was checKe !. The car rwas a large double-decker, and after leav ing the rails it rocked heavily from side l" side and the passengers prepared to land on top in case it should turn over. In the car were Airs. Russell of. the Ch ldren's Home and her little daughter, and they were thankful they escaped alive. As they looked back, after getting out of the car. they saw that they had only b?en saved by two feet. •'Had tne car leit he track two feet he fore it did," said Mrs. Russel, ''we should have been dashed down a trestle. Jus; behind where the wheels jumped the rail?* there is a little bridge across the road, and hail we eon* off there we should certainly have been killed. As the oar ran along the road it rolled over to one side, and wo were rrer-aring to adjust ourse yes so that we should be on our feet wnen the car la!.<le»l on its side. Sud denly it wobbled the other way, and so it went till it stopped." Tragic as the accident might hiv* been tl»«!re wa* a humorous side to it. It was a iiotib:e-iienk car and on top of it was a solitary gentleman who wore a silk tile. He was well advanced in years and he seemed to have a great regar .1 for his tile. His actions showed tiiat he cared about equally for his hat «rd hi* life. He ha 1 one hand for each. When the car jumped 1 ff the track the solitary passenger on the roof jumped >fT hi-> seal. When the car heeled over to port the passenger clam bered with one hanu over to starboard and with the other he held on to hi* hat. As the car reversed so did the man, and for what seeme 1 a long time the passen ger did the monkey act 10 perfection. A double-deck car has what sai.ors call too much top hamper. I does not cut anr figure when running before the win I, or on the rah, but when running with wind abeam, or with the wheels plunging into a bo 16 one si le and then into a / deeper hole on the oth?r, it is very un i I'leasant The passenger on tbo roof was m v»ry giad vien the car siupt.ei in » posi- X lon not far from upright. He walked the •>* st of the way. There wa« no obstruction, for when the next car cam- along the s^ysail yarder hud none so Jar in the ofing it was almost out of sight.

WATER FAMINE GROWS SERIOUS The Water Company Is Blamed for Berkeley's Sore Plight. Municip al Ownership Is Urged by the City Official Paper. Grave Apprehension Being Felt for the Health of the Collega Town. BERKELEY, Nov. 16— The Alameda Water Company, which is charge: with respon ib.lity for the water ftmine rapidly spreading over Berkeley, is being severely stored by the press and people of the town, and a strong sent'.ment Is being stirred up by the exigencies of the occasion in favor of Berkeley owing its own waer-wortcs. The mains of the Alameda Water Cora p my anii the Contra Cj*ia Company come close together i:i South B^rk'ley, and i is b-iieved that the AlameJa Comp.uiy could be connected with the Contra Costa Company's ji;e-s and a p.'entifui supply obtained. The Aiam<*da company ha>< thus far refused to buy water of t tie oppj itior. company, and thus give a rival a footing within its territory. Even if the mains of the two companies wer- connected, however, a large portion ol Berkeley con d not be supplied as it is above the level of the reservoir from •vhich the Centra Costa water comes' Probably all of East Berkeley north of Dvright way would |have no water, exceps by punuiinc. Ii is estimated, l, o.vever. that a i umpinc. station could be erected at a cost of about $1500. which would iorce the water to any part of tie town. Both of Berkeley's daily papers join in condemning the art on o the Alameda Water Company. The Gazette, the pio neer new.-paper of the town, charge* the company with conspiracy in the following ■•(Jitoriai : So for as known, however, nothing has been done, me maiiaaem nt b i:i(t content in sit supinely by while a disastrous water famine which may re«u!t in an awful epidemic steadily approached. Not only tint, but t;ie charge ha* been openly made that the com pany entered into an agreement with the Contra Costa people by which neither concern can invade the territory of the other. If this b.- true, and there is every reason to believe it is, the Alameda Wa er Company has de ii<eratfl • arraned to have the people of Berk ley d p-ived of water rather than take th- ctaanc > of a competitor establishing itself here. This is neither more ior less than a conspiracy and should be investigated at once. The World, the city official paper, edi torially urges municipal ownership of water works in the following emphatic .aiipuagt 1 : The interests involved and the danger* threatening arj entire. y too great to permit ot daWying win any company. The prospect of the entire exhaustion of thu supply o: water at the end of te ■ . days, or even thirty day*, when th re Will b-- abso.uttly no water for di'iu stic us- or to ore in c«'eol fire, is simply appalling, and if there is any possibil ity ot set- tine water from an Oakland com pany it should be done with the least possible delay. *\ And now is a pood time to repeat the sug gestion that trie citizens of Berk i be asked 10 vole on the question of issuing bonds for the purpose 01 securing water w.irJu to lie owned by the own. It serins to us that if there were citizens heretofore who were op posed to the issuing of bonds lor that purpose they must now be thoroughly converted and will vote for such bonds with all their hearts. The present, situation ells for the most prompt and energetic action. D.-lay will not only cause suff i ing and loss to nearly all the families in town, but may cause the canceling of every policy of tire insurance. Heath Officer Uowell declares that the lack of waier to flush Hie sewer.-* ana ?'.;Ker connections in 'he- water. ess dis tricts may j.r"«etu a difficult prob'era for the health authorities. "This whole difficulty," he declared, ; "empha-iz-s the necessity of either getting in a competing company or Ciimpeiiint; ■ tie Aamnlac mpany to furnish an a<ie ; q.iate su; pl\r. It is useless for our denart- I ment to compel people to put in sewers I *v run there is no water to keep them i flushed." PHILOSOPHY ON SUNDAY. Berkeley Students Who Wanted Pro- feftsor Uonioii to Lcctiirc on That Day. BERKELEY, Nov. IG.— The college Christian associations would havo had more than Sunday opening of the library to complain of if the plan of cne of Professor Howison's philosophy classes hnd succeeded. The members ol the class wanted the professor io lecture on philosophy on Sunday auernoons and were about to make their request, when the matier was dropped, possibly on ac <ount of the action of the Christian hsso ci.«;ions in regard to the library incident. The idea of philosophical instruction on the Sabbath is not. however, a new one ai the university. L:styenr many of Pro fessor Howison's student-; were in the habit of meeting on Sunday evenines at theprofts or's tiottse and receiving in formally philosophical instruction. At first only theological t«p:cs were taken up. but RradnLiLy tne Sunday ev«nii g discu. s on came to deal with all sor;s of philosophies! questions.
