ANOTHER
DURRANT
CHAMPION
Mrs. Hartley, Senator Fo
ley's Slayer, Makes a
Scene in Church.
SAID SHE HAD GOD'S MESSAGE.
Dr. Gibson Declined to Listen,
So She Told It on the
Curbstone. •
WAITS DUEEIirS LIFE SAVED.
Her Words Cause Great Excitement
in the Now Famous Eman
uel Church.
Mrs. Alice Hartley, who killed Senator
Foley at Reno several years ago, created a
great deal of excitement in Emanuel
Baptist Church last night. At the con
clusion of Rev. J. George Gibson's sermon
she dramatically declared that she had a
message from God to the effect that Dur
rani's life should be saved, and that it
was the duty of the congregation to save
him.
She was not allowed to make this state
ment in the church, but she asked for per
mission to do so, which, being denied, led
her to make her declarations to the crowd
as she stood on the curbing just in front
of the church.
In the midst of tne service a tall, hand
somely dressed woman evidently labor
ing under great excitement tools a seat
near the rostrum. Ail eyes were directed
toward b«r. For a lime the pastor's
words were almost lost, so great was the
attention paid tothe dignified-appearing,
though unknown, woman, whose pale
face and agitated manner showed thai
she was under a great strain. Everybody
wondered who she was and there was a
general air of mystery about her presence.
At the conc.usion of the sermon the
woman arose and as ted to be allowed to
make a statement. As the pastor had
been bored a meat deal by all sorts of
cranks lor the past two years he was
nervous. He asked: "Madame, do you
spe.sk concerning religious matters?"
He added that if the inquirer hai "ex
perienced religion" he would see her after
the services. As the woman remained
standing in a sort of d;iz>d manner the
pis'.or humored her by inviting her to in
tend a subsequent service downstairs. By
tbia time tnere was a great deal of cu
rositv as to the purpose or the strange
worn in's vsit to the church, so the con
gregation hastened downstairs to hear
what she had 10 say.
Quite a wait occurred, owing to Dr. Gib
son's late arm a. When he took his
platform he said, "Wait until I catch my
breath."
io prevent a scene be rushed through
the te-vicc. When he asked those in the
ball whether they had anything to say. he
ignored Mrs. Hurlly completely. H.s
benediction whs a hurried one.
Mrs. Hartley led to lake the platform,
but was p evented by those in charge.
She then went out to the curbstone, where
her audience was as large as the previous
one in the church.
"I am Mrs. Hartley," she said. "I have
beer, sent by God to tell you that I believe
it is the duty of the Emanuel Churcn
people to save Durrant's neck."
As she was about to continue an usher
in the church shoved her into the street
and cries of "brute!" were heard on all
sides. Recovering herself she advanced
on him and struck him.
Somebody rj-i.e. off o get a policeman,
but b for* his return Mrs. Hartley and
the crowd had dis ippeared.
'''here was a story afloat yesterday to
the effect that Attorney Deuprev will
spring sortie new evidence in the Durrani
casein a day or two. It is believed thai
he will accuse an unknown negro, whose
name i- said to be Arnold. Information
to the effect; that the murder was com
mitted by such a negro came to Deuprey
through a Chicago dentist who pretends
to have had communication with the
spirit of Blanche Lamont. This letter
came to the Governor a few weeks ago
and was turned over to the defendant's
attorneys.
It may not be very conclusive, but it is
believed to be as authentic as tne con
lession of one of the convicts of San Qjen
tin made some mouths ago.
Durrani's father saw him yesterday and
gave him news concerning the case. It
aid not seem to affect the condemned
man. Fattier and son were in consulta
tion for about an hour.

Mrs. Frances Conlisk. the wife or C. W.
Conlisk of The Call business department",
died last night after an illness of over
BiZ weeks brought on by a severe cold.
At first it was thought the affection was

-.11 San So<e. She leaves one child.
Her father and mother, who live at San
Jose, were at tier bedside at the time of
lier death.
Two sisters and a brother were unable
to come to this ciiy.

this city who will be surprised to learn of
her death, although it was known that
she had oecn aiiint: for some time pa«t.

Collisions seem to be getting to be a

lately, the last being that of the ferry boat

was to the stern of the barkentine. A col
• ision occuned last Friday evening, the
circumstances of which were attended
with a great deal more excitement and
danger, when the Stockton steamer Daunt
less backed into the sloop Periwinkle.
The Periwinkle is owned by Captain
Baetige, proprietor of the New California
House, on East street. He had been out
fishing with a companion and was return
ing home. At section two of the seawall
the Dauntless backed out o: her slip and
dead into the small sloop, the stern wheel
of the larger vessel crushing the puny
obstacle as if it bad been an eggshell.
Baettge passed completely under the
wheel and came up alongside the Daunt
less to where he could lay hold of her
guard and be hauled into a safe position.
His companion was weighted down
with a pair of heavy -^umoooia and was In
the act of sinking when a line was throw::
him and he. too, was hoisted on board.
Captain Baettge's escape was little short
oi the miraculous. The owners of the
Dauntless will doubtless make the proper
reparation, although ihey cannot morally
be held responsible for the accident, as
the hour was dusk and the circumstances
favored an accident.
The Bay City was returning from the
other side of the bay on the narrow
gauge route yesterday, when she col, ided
with the Mary Winkelman. the accident
occurring at about 8:25 a. m. There was a
heavy fog and a strong tide was running
at the time.. Th« ferry boat missed her
slip and went in toward the dock of
Mission wharf 1. Her bow merely scraped
the stern of the barkentine, but her guard
struck it heavily on the starboard quarter,
earing the timbers ana openi. ig all the
seams above the waier line. It will take
a considerable sum to repair the damage.
Captain Bradley is not held to blame, on
account of the thickness of the fog and
t:;e strong tide.
The barkentine which sustained the
damage lately arrived here -from Sydney,
Australia, and was to sail to-day ior the
Hawaiian Islands with a general cargo.
Captain Nelson, the managing owner,
now believe, that she will be delayed for
some time.
An unknown man fell into the bay
while fishing at Green-street wharf yester
day and was drowned before assistance
could reach him. At rirsl he drifted under
ihe wharf and several times laid hold of a
pile, out seemed to be too weak to hold on.
A sailor dived for bim, but he sank 10
quickly. When seen to sink he was froth
ing at the mouth, giving rise to the
opinion that he fell off the wharf while in
a tit. Boatmen were grappling for the
body until a late hour. Though there
were fifty people in the vicinity at the
time, übout 1:30 o'clock p. m., • nobody

He isdescribed as being of medium height

RABBI LEVY'S EULOGY.
The Funeral Service Over the Lato
Julius L. Franklin In
11. B. Hull.
"He was an honorable man ; he was a man
who never turned away a needy one who
applied to him for assistance, and while it
is true no man is perfect, for every man
lias some faults, yet I care not for the con
demnations of those who differ from me
about the one whose mortal remains are
now before us. I repeat he was an honoi*
able man. and now that he has passed
away his reward is rest and peace in the
reaim of the Cherubim."
These are the words that, were pro
nounce 1 yesterday afternoon in B. B. Hall
by the Rey. H. M. Levy, rabbi of the
Temple belli Israel, at the funeral services
tbat were held over the remains of the
late Jul. us L. Franklin.
There were present besides the mourn
ers and immediate friends, grand lodge
officers of the 1. <) B. 8., mem of Cal
ifornia Lodg , I. O. B. 8., members ol the
B. B Hall Assoc. ation, members of Fidel
ity L -dge, F. and A. M., Cutco Lodge of
Odd Fellows, Franklin Lodge of the
A. O. C. \V., members of the Iroquois
Club and a large number of persons who
hud known deceased in his lifetime and
had come to pay their last tribute of re
spect.
To the right at the head ol the blacK
cloth-covered casket that contained the
mortal remains of th- deceased, there
stood a la ga floral chair, a vacant chair
on whici was the simple word "Pupa,"
which eloquently told of tlie poignant
gtiei of those who ha I become f uherless;
on the other sde was an anchor in
fliwers emblematic of 'ope. At the head
was a large floral frame sent by the Iro
quois (' nt,, while nt tne foot of the tier
thore was a magnificent floral urn built of
white blossoms ami •-nidi and filled wit
drooping rose , and in addition there were
many other emblems ol sympathy in floral
work.
The service though simple was very im
nres-tve. There was a chant in Hebrew
by Cantor llainnowitz of the congregation
named, the responses being given by the
Choir; then the Key. Mr. Levy offered a
prayer in Hebrew and one in English,
inter which he delivered the eulogy, a
very e'oquent one. At the close of ihi
the choir sang "Rest, Spirit Rest." and
then the various organizations passed
around the casket to take a last view of
the departed.
The pall-bearers were Grand Secretary
I. J. Aschheim and Simon Hoehstadter,
representing the Grand Loige of the
B. B. ; Jacoo L vison and Max Hoheini,
representing the Hall Association, and
Judges Conlan and Campbell, represent
ing the Iroquois Club. The other asso< ia
tions wee also represented. The remains
were then placed in the hearse and taken
to n train for transportation to the ceme
tery in San Mateo County, lol lowed by a
large number of people in carriages.

W. S. Gates, bettor known under bis

Saturday evening in the chambers of
Justice of the Peace Barry at the City
Hail. The marriage was not one that
might b* expected of a m llionaire such
a* Swiftwater Bill is reported lo be.
There were no flowers, no bedecKed

ness-like Justice.
Bill took bis determination to join the

said that bis bride, who gave the name of
Grace Busch of Sun Francisco, and who

that he was wanted to unite a loving

Bill wore bis headlight diamond in his
shirt front and another t at cast a radi

the diamonds was a Prince Albert coat
and a tile, with the other necessary ap

In spite of the fact that Gussie La
More, the pretty Dawson vaudeville artist,
had left him lone and lorn, Bill did not
betray any hesitation about contracting a

TOLD LURID
TALES OF
MURDERS
Sensational Story Told to
the Police by W. E.
Althey.
IT MADS HIM MICH AFRAID.
He Said a Woman Told Him
of Cold-Elooded Murders in
Salt Lake City.
AS IJYESTIGATIOJ DENG MADE.
The Woman Denied the Truth of the
Stories— She Said They Were to
" Try" Althey.
W. E. Althey, a gripman on the Sutter
street cars, startled the Police Depart
ment a few days ago by telling them a
story of multitudinous murder confessed
to him by Antoinette Baree, a young Aus
trian woman with whom he has been
living for the oast month at 2714 Sutter
street. The story, he says, has so dis
turb him that, as a means of securing
peace and quietude of mind, he revealed
the history of the crimes to the police.
Althey met the woman, who is very
pretty and about 19 years of age, about a
month ago. At that time she was work
ing in Mack's ro^ia.irant on Ninth street.
He formed a friendship which soon grew
so strong that he made her a proffer of
marriage. About ten days ago his feel
ings underwent a revulsion and he began
to tear tor his life. for. he says, in a mo
ment of confidence the woman revealed
to him a story which in its cold
bloodedness and the hideoasnesa of cxc
( utton has not been surpassed by the fam
ous Bender family, whose victims were
numbered by the score. He says she de
tailed to him a story of murders perpe
trated in crowded cities in broad daylight
and actuate 1 by no motive of gain, but
-imply to avenge petty spite or fancied
wrongs.
According to the story which Althey
says was told him by his consort, she is
guilty of murdering three or four people
in Salt L iKe City.
"About a month ago." said Althey,
"this woman told me tbat she and a
friend, whose nam- -lie would not give,
but whom she described as being very
beautiful, hai killed two men in Salt Like
City. She would not. give me their
names.
"One of the men was a friend of her
friend and one day while he was in a
room at their liou-e they had a quarrel.
The man said something mean to the
L-irl and Antoinette, who was in an ad
joining room, came in and gave the man
some po son. He fell over and they
dragged the body to the bathroom and
locked the door."
A few hours afterward, according to the
story told by Althey, the girls went to the
landlady and told her that there was
something the matter with the bathhouse
door. When the landlady opened the
door she found the man there dead.
The girls, so tne story goes, hart had let
teis which purported to have been writ
ten by the dead man. In which he had
sad if they did not treat him better ne
would commit suicide. That was the
theory on winch the case was cleared up
and the gils saved.
At another time Althey says that An
toinette told him that she had ma sev
eral men "shuffle off." Wnen he asked
what she meant she had iniormed him
that they had been killed.
I Althey srid she a so told him she had
studied medicine under a doctor who had
taught her ii c use .-md effect of poisons,
and that her precep'or had subsequently
fallen a victim to a drug administered by
her hand.
Althey says when he asked her how she
hail managed to murder so many people
without being detected she told him she
and her lr:< n 1 had taken the precaution
to get letters from the r v ; ctims in which
they had staled lhat if their suits to the
hands of the charmers did not prosper
that th?y would commit suicide.
These letters, lie said, were produced at
the coroner's inquests und helped to con
fit m the jurymen in the idea that the
victims bad committed suicide.
Althey slated th.it he had attempted to
learn Irom the woman ihe names of some
of the v c tints, but could noi do so. All
that she would .-ay whs that one of them
was named Carl, and he had been mur
dered in Salt Lake City. The woman con
fessed to him. so he stated, that Carl had
died by her hand.
The woman stated that after she left
Austria she went to Germany and France
before coming to California. Althey says
she told him she and her friend, whose
name she would not divulge but whom
she alluded to as "Miss,' : had disposed of
several men in those countries. After
leaving the old country she came to Vaca
ville, where she stated that she worked
for a Mrs. Buck.
Althey says he became so alarmed at
the story of crime related to him by tue
young woman that he thought he should
report the matter to Ihe po; cc, and he did
so a few days ego. He was very much
afraid that the woman would murder him,
and he gave that as the reason why he
had disc used ihe'secrei tie says wascon
tided to him.
Detective Gibson saw the woman yester
day. She did not deny having made the
statement, although "-lie denied that there
was any truth whatever in tue stories.
She told him that she had come to Salt
Lake direct from Austria, and had not
stopped in Germany nor France. She
cli ims to have lived with a family named
Ilium at 035 St. Main street She worked
in a hairdre-smg parlor there. The
woman alleged to have been her associate,
she said, was Mrs. B.um, and that the
'■Miss" .be referred io was a myth.
When seen last night the woman did
not deny that she had told stories ot crime
to Althey, but in explanation of ti e not
said thai she had done so in order to try
him. The police are of the opinion lhat
the g rl ii a romancer and has been telling
Althey fairy tales in order to impress him
with her imparlance.
