To services rendered in the case of the People of the State of Cal
ifornia on the relation of John P. Dunn vs. D. M. Burns at
al.. No. 42. in the Superior Court of the State of Califor
nia, in and for the County of Yolo, which said latter
named case was finally dismissed and disposed of on the
23d day of January. 1893 825,000
December 5, 1899, by cash 52.000
$23,000
All of the foregoing services were performed under one general em
ployment, and no separate charges were made in the several cases.
Such is the itemized bill of General A.
'Ji Hart presented and filed as a part of
:he pleadings In his action against Dan
»i M. Hums, and this bill, notwithstand
ing the vast amount of labor its various
x- ms convey to the disinterested peruser,
ias heen settled by the colonel in a court
>: his own making, presided over by Rail
■oad Kfpresentative J. B. Wright, for the
mm of $1500. The bill in itself is a mas
erpiece, an itemized demand of which
; :•■ man on the credit end must be un
- inly proud. It Is said that even Burns
ljpreciates the shocking suggestiveness
>f the paper— suggestive in that it por
;rays that the people at one time be
leved some one crooked, and made things
•attier tropical for that some one — and if
.he politician of Mexico had things to do
)\er again he would not call for an item
z.-.l demand. He would content himself
.vith generalities.
When Burns made a demand for the
temized bill he doubtless failed to an
:icipate the brilliancy with which a list
if the misdeeds;'or rather crimes, charged >
o him, in a few, a very few, days would
fppear on paper. When he thought Gen
•ral Harts suit was going to trial— that
.vas before he discovered that he could j
■nanufacture a court, issue summons and
:oi c Hart in— he made another bad
■jreak. • He demanded a jury trial, this
iemand Wing made at no later date than
December 16 last, before Superior Court
lu'!g<: Dunne. Perhaps he was of the
Dpinion that he could more easily
aandle a jury than a Judge; no one
iccuses him of holding the opinion that I
ie ould impress "twelve good men and
:iuc"" that he was simply the exemplin
:ation of injured innocence, an honest
nan fallen victim to the wrath of a ma
.icious public, and his purse the goal of
= lawyer of usurious inclinations. But
;he case didn't go to trial. Wright of the
raiiroad was discovered and tht day and
:he thousands saved.
In order to gain a. fair idea of the labors
Df General Hart it is but necessary to
peruse the itemized bill, and when it is
considered that Burns was guilty on each
:ount It is manifest that the demand was
aot only reasonable but one far below
Lhat the "honest crook would have been
willing to pay when he found that, in-
Seed, he had been saved frum a term in
stripes. The complaint gives a better
idea of the labor required, the allega
tions on the first item being as follows:
Between the month of October, IS&4, and
the 20th day of January. ISS3, at the special
instance and request ct the defendant, life
plaintiff performed professional services for
the defendan* in two certain actions In the
Police Cuurt of the <ity of Sacramento,
county cl Sacramento and State of Cali
fornia, in which defendant wan charged
with the crime of embezzlement; also in
twelve certain actions in the Superior Court
of the county of Sacramento, j-tate afore
said, in each of which the defendant was
charged with the crime of embezzlement,
alleged to have beer, cemmitted by him in
the misappropriation of public funds coming
into his possession while ho was Secretary
of State of the State of California; also in
a civil action began in the Superior Court
of the State of California, in and for the
city and county of Ran Francisco, and sub
sequently transferred to the Superior Court
in and for the count] of Yolo, State afore
said, which later action was prosecuted by
the people of the State of California against
the defendant and hi official bondsmen to
recover the sum of $31,734 M of th" money
belonging to the State alleged to have been
received by the defendant while he was
Secretary of State of the State of California
and to have bean misappropriated by him.
and also to recover -■'■ per cent of said
amount in addition thereto at damagr?.
and also to recover Interest on said araoum
at the rate of 10 pec cent per annum froni
the loth day of November, ISM, which said
sums, [or which said action was prosecuted,
amounted. In the aggregate, at the time of
the commencement of this action, to more \
than $40,000.
On each of the following Hems the |
same allegations are made and as the ma- ;
jority of these charges were heard before
the superior Court, the work of the de
fense was even greater than the Initial
case, numbered on the Sacramento rec
ords, and as set forth on the bill, as
case 507. Burns was served with a copy
of the complaint and- then in the follow
ing terms made his denial to the allega
tions: regarding the first item:
On the 6th -day of October, ISM, an ac-
Itlon was besrun In the Police Court of the
city of Sacramento, County of Sacramento,
State of California, against this defendant,
in which action this defendant was charged
with the crime Of felony. That thereupon
the plaintiff herein voluntarily and gratu
t!ou3ly and without solicitation on the part
of defendant offered and tendered to this
defendant his. services as an attorney at
law in said action, and voluntarily and
frratuitoiisly and without solicitation on the
part of this defendant offered and under
took to appear for and represent this de
fendant In said action, and to do and per
form any and every act and thing In and
about the defense of said action as an at
torney at law on behalf of this defendant
necessary to be done and performed without
A POET'S MONUMENT
TO "THE PATHFINDER"
OAKLAND, May 22.— Joacpiin Millar is erecting a monument to the hero. <
General Fremont. The "Poet of the Sierras" says California has been -
Blow to honor "The Pathfinder." The monument will be located at "The (
Heightß." Miller's home, which was one of Fremont's camping «
places and is to stand in almost the identical spot where General Fre- (
mint stood many years ago and named the straits the "Golden Gate." The ,
monument is to be built of native blue rock, picked up In the vicinity and <
split into convenient size. The base la the spur of the rock, which projects -
from the hill. The upper pan is square and will be crowned with stones, *
built into battlements. The site is one of th*» most prominent points on Mil-
ler's property and affords a commanding view for many miles around the ,
bay. The monument will be completed in less than a month. (
cost or charge to this defendant of any j
kind or character whatsoever.
That this defendant accepted tue said vol
untary and eratultous offer of services of
plaintiff in mid action; that plaintiff under
and in pursuance of the saio. voluntary
offers of service and not otherwise did ap
pear for and represent this defendant In I
said action. That the said action never
came to trial: that thereafter an order was I
made to th« Judge of Bald Police Court
continuing said iction Indefinitely: that
such order was equivalent to and in truth
and in fact operated to a dismissal in said
action and a discharge of the defendant in
said action. That thereupon said services
of plaintiff for and on behalf of this de
fendant in said action ceased and deter
mined; that plaintiff never rendered any
service or services in said action for or on
behalf of this defendant of any kind or
character whatsoever, except as herein
abov* tared, and that plaintiff has not
since that time rendered or performed any
service or services in or about said action
for or on behalf of this defendant of any
kind or character whatsoever.
A similar denial was made to each and
every allegation of the complaint regard-
Ing the manner in which the various j
items came to be on the bill. In one in- ;
stance Burns even relegated Hart to as
sistant counsel, claiming that the gen
eral simply came In, voluntarily and gra
tuitously, to assist Attorney F. E. Baker,
who had assumed the great undertaking
of keeping Daniel out of Jail. In conclu- ;
sion the colonel pays a tribute to his
generosity and his gratitude to Hart for
his untiring labors. He says:
On the sth day of December, M, this de
fendant voluntarily presented to the plain
tiff the sum of $2000 as a donation and a :
mark of gratitude and not otherwise. That
said sum of ?2<>Vi was at said time ac
cepted by the said plaintiff from the defend
ant as a d -.nation and mark of gratitude '
and not otherwise, and that the defendant
has never at any time or at all paid to the ■
plaintiff any sum or sums of money for or
on account of any services rendered r- the
plaintiff to or m behalf of this defendant
or for cr on account of any other thing:,
or at all.
Shortly after this last tribute to his
own gratitude and generosity was penned
and Burns was calculating upon the ef- j
feet to be produced thereby upon the
jury, he demanded, that justice
might be done him, J. B. Wright
of the railroad was discovered.
Wright mounted the bench builded ■
for him by the railroad candidate j
for the Senate and Hart was summoned j.
to appear. He did arid in a moment of j
trust or abandon the matter was sub- !
mitted to Wright for decision, and in j
time Wright announced the. verdict, and !
Hart was paid $1500 instead of 123,000, but i
he is now richer to the amount of the dif
ference in experience and valuable knowl
edge of the Mexican politician's code of j
honor.
HE WANTED TO BE JUST.
Alexander Boyd Gives Testimony in
His Own Behalf.
The action of Mrs. Belle Curtis and Liz- )
zie Muir to recover $30,000 from Alexander
Boyd. business partner of the late Jacob
Z. Davis, of whose estate the plaintiffs
are the heirs, was submitted yesterday
before Judge Belcher on briefs. When the
case was called yesterday Mr. Boyd again
took the stand to substantiate the claim i
that he was entitled to the $30,000 sued I
for as compensation for his services on \
behalf of his deceased partner's estate. j
Mr. Boyd said yesterday that while his j
partner was traveling and enjoying him- j
self h». cared for the business. "I was at !
my office every day." he said, "and the
r.-:<snri ... T dirt not immediately rMvklo
death was that there was a great deal of
property to divide and I wanted to be just
to everybody; I wanted to be just to my
self. He further stated that he and his
partner oiten overdrew tneir account*, and .
no particular account was- kept of such
transactions, but In his opinion matters
stood about even at the time of Mr.
Davis death. This dlposed of the case as
far as the evidence was concerned, and
the matter was taken under advisement. :

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, MAY 23, 1899.
"TIME" CALLED
TOO SOON
Lively Mix-Up Between Attorneys
Becsy and K^enmy in Front
of the City Prison.
THERE was a lively "mlxup" be
tween Attorney Becsy and Attor
ney Kenney, the "Salmon Alley
Politician," In front of the City
Prison last evening. When hostili
ties censed Kenney looked as if he had
run afoul of a kicking mule. His face
was cut and Weeding and his clothes were
almost torn from hip back. The men were
not arrested, notwithstanding that their
"little unpleasantness." as Kenney
termed it, occurred under the window of
the Central station, where at least twenty
policemen were congregated.
"It is this way," remarked Attorney
Kenney, as he attempted to force a re
calcitrant piece of skin back on his fore
head. "Becsy don't like me, and every
time I see him I want to do him. Are
you ;u-xt? Som^ time ago \vp had a scrap,
and I put it onto him. !!•■ has been sore
ever since, and my friends warned me to
be "ii the lookout, as he was determined
to get even.
"I was standing in front of the City
Prison, anxiously endeavoring to make an
honest dollar. " continued Kenney. In giv
ing his version of the "late unpleasant
ness." "when my deadly rival appeared.
We had seme words, and I started to
knock his block oft. I wish I hadn't now.
as 1 realize I got the worst of it. Just
as f smashed him he copped me one on
the jaw ami 1 dragged him down with me.
We wen struggling in the garden along
side of the Central station, when Attor
trchte Campbell shouted that the
poiice were coming, and we quit. 1 guess
it was a good thing for me, as Becsy had
nit- all but out.
E j . did you see the other guy?" asked
Kenney, tearing off a piece of bruised
fleph that hung from his upper lip. "He
must look like he had passed through a
s:it:s;>K f - mnchine."
When told that Becsy had escaped un
injured Kenney was angry, and In a sort
of stage whisper he declared he would
"gpt him" the next time they came.to
gether.
"Campbell is a bad actor." muttered
Kenney, realizing that his hated rival was
not 1n" hearing distance. "If he had not
called time I would have put it all over
that guy. Wait until we meet again!
His own mother won't recognize him
when I get through with him."
The hostile attorney then left the scene,
vowing vengeance against Becsy , and
"Referee" Campbell.
DICK HEISE IS
THE EAGLE KING
WINS THE SCHTJETZEN ANNUAL
SHOOT AT SHELL MOUND.
This Is the Second Time That the Ac
curate Marksman Has Succeeded
in Hitting the Magic
Spot.
The annual eagle shoot and May fes- |
tival of the San Francisco Soheutzen Ye- i
rein was brought to a close yesterday
afternoon at Shell Mound Park. The af
fair, which was the fortieth one held by
he verein, was perhaps the most enjoy
ble and successful of all the previous
vents. Fully a thousand people thronged
he grounds and made merry all day.
While' the members of the verein were out
on the racecourse making' their scores,
their wives and sweethearts whiled away
the hours dancing in the spacious pavilion.
J. D. Heise, one of the best known
marksmen in the State, was crowned king
of the festival after fully two hours of
shooting. Out of one hundred competi
tors Heise was the first to knock the
wooden eagle from its perch on a pole sev
enty-five feet high. The shooting was
done at 150 yards. When Heise succeeded !
In hitting the lucky spot that sent the j
eagle shooting groundward a cheer was
Bent up that could be heard for miles
around Heise was mounted on an impro
vised throne and his wife was soon at his
side In front of the assemblage of ad
miring friends and marksmen he implant
ed a sweet kiss on his wife's lips, much to
the amusement of the crowd.
Then the members of the .verein hoist
ed i , ,-•(■■ on a table and four husky men
carried him bodily through the grounds
and into the dancing pavilion, where he .
was crowned king of the festival. Miss
Atingers and Miss Theiss. two pretty
damsels, presented Heise with a wreath ,
of roses, and he then responded with a
neat little speech that brought forth more
fhfpns ■—
Heise was crowned king of the last an
nual eagle shoot, which was held at the
same park on May 10 of last year. He is
one of the best marksmen in the country.
After the last eagle shoot Heise made a
tour of the Eastern cities and Europe, de
feating all comers at target shooting.
Previous to the main event the mem
bers of the verein shot at the eagle to
dismember it. The degree of accuracy
was measured by the different portions
of the dummy eagle, the crown being the
highest objective point and the left claw
the lowest. Following was the way the
members scored: , .
The crown, George Heyden; the apple,
J. M. Hartmann; the scepter, J. C. Wal

MARKET-STREET
COMPANY ASKS
FOR FRANCHISES
Bold Attempt to Secure From
the Board of Supervisors a
Wholesale Monopoly.
Would Grab the Valuable Geary-Street
Franchise and Cut Off Competition in
Almost Every Quarter of the City.
o The expected has hap- o l
o pened. The Market-street Q
o Railway Company, in an ef- o
9 fort to anticipate the re-
o stnctions of the new char- o
0 ter, has asked the Board of °
o Supervisors to betray the q
° people ana grant to it fran- °
q ch/ses aggregating in value o
o many hundreds of thousands ©
o of dollars. ®
In this wholesale attempt to grab the
right of way over dozens of the principal
streets of the city the railroad corpora
tion has not overlooked the franchise for
the Geary-street road. In order to get in
ahead of the provisions of the new char
ter, the corporation, acting In the name of
the Geary-street. Park and Ocean Rail
road Company, offers to surrender to the
city its present franchise for the Geary
street cable road, which expires In 1903,
provided the Board of Supervisors will
advertise for bids for the sale of the fran
chise under the present law. This and the
other franchises asked for would, if grant
ed, shut out competition in the matter of
the operation of street railroads so ef
fectually that the Market-street Railroad
Company would be put in possession of a
vast monopoly, in the hands of which the
people of the city would be powerless.
A hurried meeting of the Street Com
mittee of the Board of Supervisors was
called yesterday afternoon just before the |
meeting of the board, the only person
present besides members of the com
mittee being Superintendent Henry Lynch
of the Market-street company! To the
committee Lynch presented the petitions
of the corporation, together with a type
written recommendation to be made by
the committee to the board. This .recom
mendation embraces all that the corpora
tion asks for in the petitions and some
thing niDre. It was immediately adopted
and embraced in the committee's report, i
which was presented to the board a few j
minutes later, Only the discovery that In j
its haste the corporation had overlooked I
an important and necessary proceeding
prevented favorable action being taken on j
the recommendation immediately. As it
is the matter was postponed for one week
and the public will have an opportunity to
express an opinion through those mem
bers of the board who will oppose the at
tempted wholesale steal of franchises.
The petition of the railroad company in
the matter of the Geary-street franchise
sets forth that the present franchise will
expire November 6, IW3; that the road
is now paralleled by electric roads, a fact
that makes it necessary to completely re
construct the line; that the cost of such
reconstruction is wholly out of the ques
tion under existing franchises because
they have but a short time to run.
Continuing, the petition reads:
Your petitioner therefore prays that your
honorable board will grant to the highest -
bidder, according to law, a new franchise
for a single or double track railroad over
the entire route of your petitioner's present
railroad as hereinbefore described, with all
necessary stations, side tracks, switches,
turnouts and appliances, for the term of ■
fifty year?, under such restrictions, condi
tions and limitations as to your honorable
board shall seem proper, with the right to
operate the same by electricity, with mod
ern appliances, or such other motive power
as may be allowed by law. Your petitioner
herewith presents and tiles a draft of a .
proposed new franchise therefor. ■ the terms
and conditions whereof it prays may be
deemed acceptable to your honorable body.
And, as a condition precedent to the grant
of said new franchise hereinbefore applied
for, your petitioner hereby offers to surren
der the franchises aforementioned and de
scribed as Order No. W.< of November 6,
IS7S Order No. 1515 of September 15, 1879,
and' Order No. 2290 of December 9, 1890. and
each and all of the rights and privileges
held thereunder by your petitioner, said
surrender and abandonment, nevertheless,
to take effect and be in force only upon the
award of a new franchise over said route
as hereinbefore applied for. ■
And your petitioner will ever pray, etc.
By order of its board of directors, with
the" consent of its stockholders.
GEARY STREET. PARK AND OCEAN
RAILROAD COMPANY.
By J. L. WILLCUTT, Secretary.
The draft of a franchise accompanying
this petition first sets out a description
of the route now occupied by the Geary
street road, the conditions of the fran
chise being that the track or tracks must
be placed as nearly as possible in the cen
ter of the street; to plank, pave or ma
cadamize between the tracks and for two
feet on each side, and to keep the same
constantly in good repair; the tracks to be
no more than live feet between rails; the
owners of the franchise to pay the city
annually a percentage (to be fixed) of the
gross receipts of the road, providing that
no such payment shall be required for the
first five years; work on the road shall be
started within one year of the granting
of the franchise, and the road shall be
completed within three years; permission
is granted to use electricity, as a motive
power, the corporation being bound to run
cars at intervals of not less than fifteen
minutes between the hours of 7 a. m. and
9 p. m.; police officers and mail carriers
are permitted to ride on cars free of
charge.
The report, of the Committee on Streets
recommends that the petition of the cor
poration be granted and that the proposed
new franchise be granted as provided by
law.
The second petition, in which the corpo
ration seeks to secure franchises on
streets in almost every quarter of the
city. Is remarkable in its completeness.
The franchises asked for are of a nature

to be valueless to any other person or
corporation other than the petitioner.
This being so. there will be no competition
in the bidding for the franchises, and the
Market street company will secure valu
able concessions practically without cost.
At the same time it will gain franchises
on numerous streets and pieces of streets
and thus be enabled to effectually block
future competition. All of the franchises
asked for are to run for fifty years, and
are as follows:
Subdivision I—Commencing at the inter-,
section of Jackson and Sansome streets,
thence along Sansome to its northerly
termination. .
Subdivision ■ —Commencing at the inter-,
section of Railroad avenue and Sixteenth
avenue south, along: Railroad avenue to San
Bruno avenue, thence along San Bruno ave
nue and llllllken street to the county line.
Subdivision 3—Commencing at the inter
section of California street and Thirty- ■
second avenue, along Thirty-second avenue
to Point. Lobos avenue.
Subdivision 4—Commencing at the inter
section of Point Lobos road and Forty
pißhth avenue, along Forty-eighth avenue
to an unnamed street between A and B
streets, thence to Forty.sixth avenue,
thence to B street, thence to Forty-seventh
avenue, thence to C street, thence to Forty
ninth avenue.
Subdivision —Commencing at the corner
of Battery and California streets, thence
along Battery to Sacramento street.
.Subdivision 6—Commencing at the inter
section of Stockton and Pacific streets.
thence along Stockton street to Broadway.
Subdivision 7—Commencing at the inter
section of Hayes and Stanyan streets,
thence along Stanyan to Fulton street.
Subdivision Commencing at the inter
section of Taylor and Geary streets, thence
along Taylor to Post street.
Subdivision 9—Commencing at the inter
section of Geary street and Grant avenue,
thence along Grant avenue to Bush street,
thence along Bush to Sansome street. i
In the draft of the resolution granting
the above franchises is inserted the
clause that the person or corporation se
curing the franchises on the streets
named shall not be required- to pay to
the city a percentage of the gross re
ceipts for a period of five years. *
The report of the Street Committee rec
ommends that these franchises be grant
ed on the terms set forth. It also recom
mends that the Market Street Railway
Company be granted permission to use
electricity as a motive power on the fol
lowing named roads:
Brannan street, from First to Third;
Pacific street, from Kearny to Stockton;
Bush street, from Sansome to Battery;
McAllister street, from Devisadero to
Central avenue, and along Central ave
nue to "Fulton, and along Fulton to Sev
enth avenue; Hayes street, from Devisa
dero to Stanyan: California street, from
Central avenue to Firit avenue. Also to
use electricity as a mttive power on the
proposed "corkscrew road." so called. .
Added to the above recommendations
is one granting permission to the South
ern Pacific Company to construct a dou
ble track railroad on certain streets in
connection with its railroad to San Jose.
There was apparently nothing overlooked.
The petition of the railroad company
for the Geary street and other franchises
were first taken up for consideration by
the board. Supervisor Perrault imme
diately moved that they be referred to
the committee of the whole. This was
seconded by Supervisor Deasy, who said
he thought the matter entirely too im
portant for hasty action, in view of the
fact that the new charter was soon to go
into effect, and that by its provisions
franchises could not be granted for a
linger period than twenty-five years, and
that the city could also have the benefit
of other restrictions. Byington and Lack
mann also opposed hasty action. The mo
tion to refer was lost by the following
vote:
Ayes —Byington. Deasy. Heyer, Lack
mann, Perrault—s. Noes —Algeltinger. At
tridge. Black, Collins, Holland, Kalben,
Phelps—7.
Perrault then moved that the petitions
be referred to a select committee to con
sist of Deasy, Lackmann, Byington and
Heyer. Aigeltinger moved as an amend
ment that they be referred to the Street
Committee and that the gentlemen named
as a select committee be invited to sit
with the committee without power- to
vote. This was finally carried and then
a motion was mnde~to include Perrault
in the invitation. Pprrault asked to be ex
cused from voting for the reason, he said,
that "I see that the committee is doing
crooked work in this business and I do
not care to be mixed up in it." The mo
tion was lost.
The recommendations of the committee
were then taken up and Perrault moved
to strike out of the report all of that part
relating to street railway franchises. The
motion was lost on a tie vote, as follows:
Ayes—Byington, Collins, Deasy, Heyer,
Lackmann. Perrault—6.
Noes — Aigeltinger, Attridge, Black,
Holland. Kalben. Phelps—
It remained for Byington to discover
the error made by the railroad company,
an error due to a desire to secure speedy
action in the matter. He made the point
of order that the report of the Street
Committee, or at least that part of it re
laing to the franchises, was riot properly
before the board because the petitions of
the corporation had not first been pre
sented to the board and then referred by
the board to the Street Committee. The
Mayor held that the noint was well taken
for the reason that the committee cannot
act on any matter not referred to it by
the board. When this ruling was an
nounced Aigeltinger changed his vote
from no to aye on the previous motion to
eliminate, and that motion was then de- i
clared carried. The whole subject matter I
was then referred to the Street Commit
tee, which means a delay of at least one
week before it can again he brought be
fore the board for initial action. This de
lay may prove fatal, as the time in which
the present Board of Supervisors can
grant franchises under the law is limited.
