The HeDSchels Were Nearly
Overcome by Their
Manager Fine Brakes a Record
as Well as a Large
Nothing "Uncertain About a Really
Good Thing That Has
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
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
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 Laundry Farm Car Is the
Cause of Terror and
The lone Passenger on. the Eoof
Had to Do Monkey's
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.

The Water Company Is
Blamed for Berkeley's
Sore Plight.
Municip al Ownership Is Urged
by the City Official
Grave Apprehension Being Felt for
the Health of the Collega
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."
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.
The students who attended these meet
ings declare that they wer exceedingly
interesting and far more insruc ive tlian
WorjE in the classroom could possibly be.

ALAMEDA. Nov 16 —At the meeting of
the B ard el Trusiee last evening the ques
tion of permitting midnight dances came
up, City Atlornev Taylor having drafted
I an ordinance requiring people conducting
j public balls continuing after midnight to
first obtain a permit from ihe Trustees.
The proposed ordinance provoked a great
I lie slot discussion, and it was finally de
! cided t at the laws governing breaches of
j me peace already in existenc? were suffi
; cient, and that if the p lice would enfo cc.
J them more rigidly the cause o! complain 1
! would be largely removed. It will be im
j possible, however, to do this without de
j tailing otfic rs especially to attend such
' balls and preserve the peace.
The proposition of Trustee Brick to have
! the various accounts of the different de
partments se^'reuated, involving consider
able extra bookkeeping wunou apparent
Corresponding benefit, was also discus:-ed
at length and then defeated by a vote of
I 3 to 2.
