HERRIN WAS CALLED
DOWN AT HIS OWN GAME
Mystery of His Action in the Grain
Cases Dispelled.
Edson Gave Away a Plan Hatched by the
State's Attorneys and the Railroad
Was Forced to Quit.
THE mystery that has surrounded
the sudden application of the
S>mhern Pacific Company to
Judge Morrow for a dismissal of
the "grain rate cases" and a dis-
BOlution of the injunction against the
f- per cent rate was dispelled yesterday
vhen the tacts contributing to Mr.
Huntington's sudden action became
public.
Mr. Huntington's motion was made
solely for the purpo?.- of preventing
him and his hirelings on the Board of
Railroad Commissioners plunging into
b pitfall that had been cleverly dug in
The sinuous path they were treading
by the attorneys who have been acting
for the Slat.- in resisting the railroad's
attempt to evade the costs and penal
ties that would accrue when the suits
Bh mid be dismissed. It was a scheme
to entrap the Southern Pacific's presi
dent that would have required all of
the "higher education" that Mr. Herrin
could have mustered to defeat had it
I ■ cii that the whole plan was given
away by an inadvertence of Commis
sioner Edson, who, being the one mem
ber on the board who has stood for the
people and his principles, was perforce,
a party to it. As it was Mr. Herrin'a
higher education did the business.
Ever since Commissioner Klaekstock
unveiled the railroads scheme to un
load the costs of the grain rate cases
on the State by introducing Vis resolu
tion the attorneys for the State — Attor
ney General Ford and Attorneys Foote
and Hayne, special counsel for the
commonwealth — have been casting
fib ut for some plan whereby the rail
road's intentions might be circum
vented. They hit upon one when Black
stock, in an open meeting of the board,
asserted that in his opinion no business
• ■"Uld be done until the injunctions
dissolved and the cases dismissed,
even if th>- State had to do it. The mi
d, tied the hands <>f the
board and no new schedule of freight
could be adopted until it had been
dissolved.
That tip was all that Mr. Poote
wanted, and calling in Judge Hayne
they decided to appear before the court
and apply, themselves, and in good
faith, to have the injunction dissolved,
but to demand that the suits should be
maintained. Commissioner Edson was
i in and acquainted with the plan
■ lily assented to it.
Tt was arranged that he should go
before Judge Morrow in his official ca
pacity and present affidavits from dif
ferent grain shippers that the injunc
tJcu was no longer a saving agent to
the State, for the reason that the rail
road had be<?n compelled to grant an
even greater reduction than S per cent
by force of competition. He was to
;ikU the court for a 'dissolution of the
injunction, but at the same time was
to make strong objection to a disrrris
9Jil of the suits, upon the ground that
(here were other and more vital ques
lions involved than that of grain rates.
H" was also to demonstrate to the
■mi that the only thing that ham
i the commission in the discharge
its duties was the enjoining order
nd that the dismif-al of the suits was
unnecessary. He was to be followed by
the two attorneys, who would make the
formal motion, based upon his repre
ss i n.tions. Being the only motion be
fore the court, and in line with its
policy, as indicated by Judge Morrow

when he so severely censured the com
mission for applying for dismissal on
behalf of the plaintiffs, there was small
doubt that the motion would be
granted.
Blackstock's declaration that the
hindrance of the injunction was his
reason for moving to dismiss the
suits was nothing more nor less than
;i mask to hide the crafty scheme be
hind it. It was not a question of get
ting to work, but of absolving Mr.
Huntington from tr-> costs of the cases
he had brought and the penalties that
might accrue that actuated his two
hirelings on the commission, and the
fact was plain to any one who cared to
see it.
If the plan of the two attorneys had
succeeded Messrs. Huntingdon, Black
stock and Laumeister would have
found the alleged obstacle removed
from the path of their duty, but with
the cases and the menace they carried
still staring them in the face they
would either have had to go to work
or expose the whole crooked scheme by
making separate application for a dis
missal of the suits. It was a nice dish
of ennv Foote and Hayne had cooked
up for Mr. Huntington and his own,
and thei- might have had the eating of
it but for a slip made by Eds<..n. Armed
with the necessary affidavits he was
told to quietly slide over to Oakland
and wait for the next morning to come
round when he could make his initial
appearance in court. He was warned
to say nothing to nrv ope and particu
larly to beware of his private attorney.
Mr. Edson went to Oakland, but he
disregarded the second half of the in
junction and called upon Morris M.
Estee, his attorney, for advice. To Mr.
Estee he outlined the scheme in all its
elaborate details and discussed it with
him for as much as an hour. Whether
or not Mr. Estee advised him is a mat
ter of inconsiderable importance, but
the fact stands out that within an hour
the whole proposition was ] wn in
the offices of Mr. Herrin an>l a plan to
beat It was already hatching.
As a result, the next morning Attor
ney Plllsbury, Mr. Herrin's associate,
appeared before Judge Morrow without
having given previous notice and moved.
on behalf of the railroad company, for
a dismissal. As Mr. Plllsbury repre
sented, the plaintiff had every right to
dismiss his <i\vn suit, Judge Morrow
granted his request without question,
and the well contrived scheme of the
State fell to the ground.
The only matter left to be settled af
ter the railroad's motion had been
granted was the costs of the suits, and
even in his defeat Mr. Herrin did not
overlook a chance to save his company
from being assessed. Although the mo
tion made by Mr. Pillsbury was for an
absolute dismissal, and made, on be
half of the railroad company, the print
ed application he handed up to the clerk
of the court stated that the plaintiff
did not make the motion, but merely
consented to the motion previously
made by the Railroad Commissioners
on behalf of the State, it was a brazen
scheme to deceive the court and falsify
the records, but it was promptly called
down by the State's counsel and will
have no effect when the court shall
finally fix the costs.

pheasants from New Jersey which will he
immediately distributed for propagation
purposes in a number of counties of the
State. The birds are to be turnea loose
in Santa Barbara, Mariposa, Placer, El
Dorado, Calaveras, Santa Clara and
Humboldt counties. It Is believed that
this kind of game bird will do well in this
State, as they have proved to be very
hardy in even more rigorous climates.
They are protected by State laws and the
Commissioners have had assurance that
the laws will be enforced in the counties
where the birds are liberated.
DIED OF FEVER WHILE
SERVING AT MANILA
BODY OF T. F. SARGENT CAME
HOME ON THE SHERIDAN.
Among the bodies brought back from
Mnnila on the transport Sheridan was
that of Thomas F. Sargent, United States
Hospital Corps, who died in Manila on
August 7, 1898.
Mr. Sargent was a prominent young
man in San Francisco, who had many
friends. He was born in this city and
received his education in the public
schools, graduating at the head of the
class of 1592 and being awarded the Den
man medal. Early in life he evinced great
literary talent and was a prominent mem
ber of several literary and social socie
ties, notably the Athenaeum and Lltera
tium. In the essay contest given by The
Call in 1592 Mr. Sargent won first prize,
the subject of his essay being "Colum
bua." lie often distinguished himself as a
reciter, and many times did the large
halls of this city resound with the echoes
of his masterpiece, "Sparticus' Address
to the Roman Gladiators."
Upon joining the army he was assigned
to the Hospital Corps and detailed as
clerk of Captain Keefer, surgeon of the
Third Artillery. He took sick within a
few days after landing at Cavlte and died
soon after of malignant typhoid fever.
When hostilities with Spain commenced
he had just been appointed to a position
in the United States postal service, hav
ing successfully passed the civil service
examinations; but the thought that he
could better serve his country in other
channels caused him to resign his appoint
ment and go forth to defend the banner of
liberty that he loved and. like many an
other hero, to die, his young life sacri
ficed-on the altar of his country.
Sargent's father fought in the War of
the Rebellion and his brother William
was in the campaign in Cuba with the
Arizona Territorial Regiment.
The funeral will take place to-morrow
morning from the undertaking parlors of
McAvoy & Co., Market street, near Ninth.
An escort detailed from tl*> Hospital ;
Corps will follow the body to St. Pat
rick's Church, where a requiem mass will
be celebrated, commencing at 10 o'clock.
Interment. Holy Cross Cemetery.
IN POLITICAL HARNESS.
Citizens Organizing Clubs With a
View of Purifying the
Municipality.
Somewhat of an innovation in the polit
ical atmosphere is being carried on just
now by the organization of clubs of men
who have affiliated with improvement
clubs up to the present time. Among .lie
clubs organized for political purposes
having in view the production of new ami
better material are:
The Democrats of the Thirty-second
A.->. mbly District, who have just set a
club In motkm by holding a meeting at
959 Bryant street a few evenings ago. At
the organization of this club for better
material the following were elected ofli
cers: Frank Lester, president; Harry
O'Donnell, secretary; John Ryan, vice
president; John Hayden, treasurer, and
James Hamilton, sergeant at arms.. At
the next meeting, which will be held on
next Tuesday at the same place, further
steps will be taken to add other names to
the list of the seventy-five who have al
ready placed their names on the roll lor
good government.
The Republicans, not to be outdone by
their antagonist, have sour Into political*
harness also. The improvement-politico
organization at the west Bide of Castro
street have organized a dub for that por
tion of the city, with the following result:
John Mecredy, president; George B. I>ang,
vice president; C. E. Osgood, secretary;
Samuel Wiedenthal, treasurer, and N. A.
Beck, sergeant at arms.
A federation of Republican clubs was
also organized, with the following offi
cers: President, H. E. Griffith; vice pres
ident. A. C. Brown; secretary, J. Boost;
treasurer, C. K. Osgood, and Joseph Mao
. sergeant at arms. The further en
rollment of members for this organiza
tion will be had on next Wednesday at
Fairmount Hall.
A similar organization of federation of
sts was organized by the Democrats
at 708 Douglas street on Thursday even
ing, at which E. I. Coffee was elected
president A committee with executive
power was appointed, consisting of A. S
Lillie, Captain Anderson, Major B. Mc-
Kinne, James Connors. Robert O'Neill, L,.
Ci. ("lark and J. W. Nixon.
This organization is known as the broad
gauge track, as it will admit all reputable
citizens to membership within its fold,
provided th> y be for gnod government and
for an early and sudden demise of all
"bosses" of the Kelly ~nd Crimmins
breed, who live off "rake-offs" from un
fortunate political worms.
About fifty members of the Thirty
fourth Assembly District met last night
in Harmony Hall, corner of Brie and Mjs
stof, streets, and effected a temporary or
ganization of a Republican club. James
\V. Bounty was elected temporary chair
man. J. E. Johnson temporary secretary
and A. H. Menne, S. J. Hurst. J. Miller,
J. E. Johnson and E. W. Wall were ap
pointed a committee on permanent organi
zation. State Senator S. \Y. Burnett ad
dressed the meeting. It adjourned until
Friday evening next at the same place.

Life Crushed Out of Little Five-
Year-Old Cortis Mace.
Killed, After Being Mangled Cruelly, in
Front of His Home by a Car of the
Haywards Electric Line.
OAKLAND. May 26.— The electric
trolley car has claimed another vic
tim whose name the clerk of the
death roll can to-night Inscribe be
neath that of little Tommy Kear
ney of San Francisco.
Corlls Mace, 5-year-old son of A. F.
Mace, a widower, residing at 72 East
Twelfth street, was killed in front of his
home by car 38 of the Haywards electric
line shortly before 6 o'clock this evening.
The child had been playing on the oppo
site side of the street with other children
and in running back toward his home the
trolley car struck him. twisted the little
body beneath the ill-improvised board that
could serve only as a fender to remove a
bowlder from the track, and mangled it
into an unrecognizable mass of flesh after
dragging the body about thirty-six feet,
when a pedestrian eye-witness hailed the
motorman to "stop for God's sak>-."
The car had to back in order that the
mangled form might be reached.
The remains were immediately removed
to the child's home, where an inquest will
ho held to-morrow evening.
Motorman If. W. McLane and Conduc
tor G. F. Reinle were in charge of the
electric car, and neither profess to know
how it all happened except that "the
child must have run in front of the car."
James Fell, residing at 061 East Seven
teenth street, was an eye-witness. "Had
there been a proper fender on car 38."
said Fell, to-night, "that child would not
have been killed. I was walking near S. . -
ond avenue and paw the child run across
the street, saw the body si ruck by that
board in front and t isted and rolled up

WOULD PREVENT FRAUDS.
Members of the Iroquois Club adopted
resolutions last night regarding the forth
coming election. The resolutions, present
ed by Max Popper, ask that precincts
contain no more than 200 voters. This
number can be canvassed before midnight,
thus eliminating the danger of fraud. The
resolutions follow:
Resolved. That it is the sense of the
members of the Iroquois Club of San Fran
cisco that the precincts should not contain
more than an average of 200 votes at the
forthcoming municipal election in Novem
ber as it ta deemed inadvisable to Increase
the number of votes cast in one precinct
because of it causing a prolonged count and
relatively tends to produce inaccuracies In
the counting <>f the vote. Be It further
Resolved, That a cony of this resolution
be sent to the Honorable Board of Election
Commissioners.
Distributing Insane Patients.
A. C. Clarke, secretary of the Southern
California State Hospital at Highlands,
arrived in the city yesterday. With him
were twenty-one insane patients, ten of
whom will be sent to Stockton and eleven
to Agnews. This is done to relieve the
congested condition of the Highlands
Asylum. Mr. Clarke states that it has
accommodations for 4fiO patients and they
have been caring for 649, eighty of whom
were obliged to sleep on the floor. It is
proposed to reduce the number at High
lands as quickly as possible.

in a ball and crushed beneath the car. It
all made me sick, but I yelled to the mo
torman to stop, and after the body had
been dragged thirty-six feet he stopped.
Whether the motorman saw the child try-
Ing to cross or not I can't say, but I
heard the bones crack, and afterward told
the motorman he would have to back up
so we could reach the body. It was most
horrible to behold."
Mrs. Wilson, Mr. Mace's housekeeper,
was half beside herself with grief. She
ran out into the street, frantically scream
insr and claimed the remains as one in
her charge. She states that the child had
not been out of her sight over five min
utes when she heard it scream. She was
just preparing supper and says she would
never allow the child to play in the street.
When the father, returning from his
day's work, learned of the awful deatli
of his little boy and viewed the remains,
he wept as though his heart would break.
He was unable to talk.
A careful inspection of the body by Dep
uty Coroner .T. J. Mottel proved that the
child's skull from the forehead to the
back of the head was crushed. The left
side from the armpit to the hip is burned,
the ribs on the left side are scorched,
and the right side is burned through to
the Internal organs, The elbows are
burned. The bone of the right leg is
broken between the knee and hip. and
the knee bone fractured. The jawbone
and nose are crushed.
Some tim<- ago the City Council passed
an ordinance requiring all electric cars to
be provided with suitable fenders for the
protection >>f life and limb. Nearly all
save tlm Haywards line, the Kan Pablo
avenue line, and the Telegraph avenue
linp. In which Huntingdon is interested,
have complied.
Missionites Are Aggressive.
The Mission people are indignant over
the action of the Supervisors in favor
ably considering the proposition of the
Southern Pacific Company to put down a
double railway track along the Mission
belt through the very center of the city.
To give vent to these indignities the
Federated Mission Improvement Clubs
will hold a meeting at Fairmount Hall
Chenery and Miguel streets, to-night at
which prominent speakers will be present
to denounce the newest railroad grab.
Following this meeting will be another
at Mangels' Hall on Folsom and Twenty
fourth streets to-morrow at 2 o'clock in
the aftornoon. This will be in the nature
of a mass meeting, at which all citizen^
are cordially invited to attend.
Town Talk.
The best rartoon that has graced a local
weekly in an age is "They Were All of the
Tom Family," that illustrates one of the
court reporter's pood stories in to-day's
Town Talk. There are some excellent edi
torials in this number, btief comments
upon events of late occurrence at home
and abroad. The critique upon "The
Moth and the Flame" is remarkably in
teresting:, and as a whole the dramatic
department is more than usually
readable this week. The Saunteror has
stories upon Jimmy Swinnerton, "Neally"
O'Sullivan and others, and tells about the
most photographed woman in society.
Plays that have perished, though worthy
of life, is another topic touched upon by
the Saunterer. The usual interesting mu
sical reviews, stories, verses, jokelets and
clever miscellany make up the number. •
