Mysterious Fire on Paris Street
The residence and furniture belonging
to Bymen Blywlse at 230 Paris street, be
tween Silver avenue and Brazil street,
were destroyed by fire yesterday after
noon. There was something of a mystery
attending the fire. In the first instance
Engine Company 32, located at Holly
Park and West street, was called out on
a still alarm, and after arriving at the
place indicated there was nothing to call
for its service. The company had just
returned to its house when an alarm came
in from box 661. This was responded to,
and when Captain Eugene O'Connor ar
rived with his engine he found a fire mak
ing headway on the cottage. There being
no hydrants nearer than Mission street
he was compelled to run his hose into the
water tanks of one of the vegetable
gardens close by. The supply, however,
was Inadequate to do any service, and
the fire was permitted to have Its way,
while a second alarm was turned in from
an adjoining box by some person who saw
the flames from a distance. This had the
effect of bringing engines 33 and 18 to the
scene, but their attendance was as useless
as that of 32 because of the lack of hy
drants. ' «

Oden Zoebag Attempts to End His
Life by Swallowing Morphine.
A well dressed man about 25 years
of age walked Into a saloon on the
corner of Third and Minna streets yester
day afternoon and ordered a beer served
to him in one of the boxes. A few min
utes later he staggered Into the bar and
fell on the floor, exclaiming that he had
poisoned himself. He was sent to th-e
Receiving Hospital, where it was found
that he had swallowed a dose of mor
phine. The usual remedies were applied
and he was soon pronounced out of dan
ger. The would-be suicide said his name
was Oden Zoebagr, but he refused to give
any reason for trying to take his life. In
his pockets was found a note addressed
to J. S. Hall, 25 H<yzog street, Portland,
In which he said: .
"I could not make it, so it Is useless for
me to stay any longer. Good-by. I'll do
as I threatened and I won't worry any
longer. ODEN."

while my stomach was so irritable I
could not eat anything without distress,

Grape-Xuts Food is now recommend-
ed by physicians all over the United
States. They know it contains the deli-
cate particles of phosphate of potash
obtained from the natural grains. This
is the element Nature uses vvitli albu-
men of the food to build the soft gray
substance in the nerve centers, brain
and solar plexus, in the human body.
The effect is in some ways like a stimu-
lant, but does not wear off, for it is a
natural rebuilding.

recorded last night. Instead of giving the

them again in this world. This he admit
ted when he awoke from a deep, sonorous
sleep this morning. "I was tired of life

rash but poorly managed act Is a surprise
to all his friends. It is due to family

Town Trustees. The Trustees claimed
that the rescinding of the liquor licenses
would mean a considerable financial loss
to the town. At that time fully 52700 a
year was turned into the treasury from
licenses. The amount of the license was
reduced later, howevar, to average SISOO a
year. The Trustees could not see any
way to make up the deficiency in the
treasury which the closing of the saloons
would cnuse.
Then A. W. Naylor and J. L. Barker,
two of the most prominent business men
in Berkeley, came to the rescue and guar
anteed the payment each year of the sum
of JISOO so that no loss would be sustained
by the town. " . "
The Trustees entered into an agreement
with these gentlemen whereby $450 was
to be paid on the 10th of January and
every quarter thereafter. Having guar
anteed this amount to the town the
women then undertook to raise this sum
by subscription in order to keep Mr. Bar
ker and Mr. Naylor from actual loss.
That subscriptions might be received
Miss A. M. Hicks, president of the Berke
ley W. C. T. U., sent circulars broadcast
into the State. Over ISOO petitions and
subscription blanks were sent to the par
ents of the students of the university. The
petition set forth "that the fight will be a
fierce one and we need the support of
every father and mother In California in
behalf of whose eons and daughters this
war is being waged." In a short time sev
eral hundred dollars was in the treasury
to carry on the fight against the liquor
men. Subscriptions were received from
branches of the W. C. T. U. In various
parts of the State, from churches and
fr'">m many parents of the students.
The first installment of this contract
price was paid on January 10 and there
is now a balance In the treasury of the
committee toward the present quarter.
Now no saloons exist openly, though
there are many places where one may sat
isfy his thirst "if you know where to go
in Berkeley," as the college song has it.
The front doors are closed and nailed,
while the side entrances satisfy "ac
quaintances." Still, the temperance work
ers are satisfied, as the saloon men are
gradually dropping out of existence and
seeking quarters elsewhere.
Miss A. M. Hicks, the prime mover in
the crusade, said: "We have had a hard
fight to accomplish our end. but the satis
faction it gives us to know that our end
Is gained more than pays us for our la
bors. We have worked diligently for over
a year and will never let up until there
is not a drop of liquor sold in Berkeley.
As this is the center of culture and
education, and also the strongest place
of the liquor men. our victory has been
all the more great. We went Into the
den. grappled with the demon and came
out victorious. It was a severe blow to
the saloon keepers and to the liquor men
throughout the State and a great strength
to the Anti-Saloon League. Hundreds. I
might say thousands, of dollars have been
spent by the liquor men to down our
cause. It meant much to them. If the
courts had upheld them in the Berkeley
cases their other flehts in various parts
of the State would nave been easy. We
are receiving subscriptions daily, will con
tinue to employ our attorney, Mr. Gray,
ar.d will keep up the work of endeavor
ing to close all saloons."
A. W. Naylor, president of the Commer
cial Bank of Berkeley, said: "I have been
interested In the closing of the saloons
from the start. I think they are an evil
which should not exist, and especially In
a college town where there are so many
young men. Many of them are away from
home for the first time, are of an Im
pressionable age and open more or less
to temptation. The morals of the stu
dents and the community at large has
been greatly benefited by the closing of
the saloons, and I will certainly do my
small part in assisting the ladles and men
interested in the temperance cause."
BERKELEY, Feb. 14.— The people of
Berkeley so wanted the saloon
abolished in the college town that
they are paying into the tovn
treasury the sum of $ISOO a year which
the town would have received from sa
loon licenses in order that the town be not
financially embarrassed. This sum is
guaranteed In regular agreement form by
two gentlemen and the money is raised by
Fubscriptlon from the families of unlvrr-
Etty students all over the State. The
DXBt payment was made last month under
the agreement, and upon no other condi
tion would the Trustees abolish saloons.
This is the most unique method In the
world of securing prohibition, and the
Btrkeleyans who are behind the scheme
are standing Ly their bargain with the
Town Trustees to the extent of IISOO In
cash every year. There are few cases on
record where so sir.ctre a movement was
made at such a cost.
The "mile limit'" State law prohibitirg
the sale of liquor within a mile of the
State University has always existed, and
within the last year that "limit" has
been stretched to enter Berkeley, a dis
trict of probably nine square miles. This
was accomplished only after the hardest
fight by citizens of Berkeley Interested in
temperance work, and a submission of the
question to a vote of the town.
As a result of this prohibition there does
not erist at present the wildly- exciting
tiroes that West Berkeley particularly
saw a year or more ago. There are no
more beer busts Indulged in by college
student*, and there are no more ""jolly"
times as th<re used to be.
Now Berkeley is strictly temperance
and as quiet, as the proverbial church
mouse. It is an unusual thing to see an
Intoxicated person on the streets. All this
has been brought about by a society of
ladles backed by the financial aid of sev
eral prominent citizens.
Several months ago a number of ladles
met Informally and discussed the liquor
evil existing in the college town. From
a mere discussion of the subject giew
concentrated action. A committee of
twtnty-one In which Rev. J. R. Knodell,
Professor Woodworth. H. L Gear, Rev. E.
S. Chapman and Messrs. Mills, Clarkr,
Freeze and Halnes, Miss A- M. Hicks,
Mrs. Mary Birath, Mrs. Rhodes, Mis.
Rodgerp, Mrs. Mary Cartwrignt and
Mrs. Adelaide Marquand were very prom
inent, developed the fight to close the sa
loons. West Berkeley and Lorin were the
meets of the Baloons. as East Berkeley is
within the mile limit.
The question was submitted to the ve
ers of the town and the election was 1 car
ried against the saloon. This, however,
was merely an expression of opinion, and
en act of the Town Trustees was lects
tary to make it binding. ..
The first obstacle to overcome and the
xnost prominent was the satisfying of the
narrow escape from being killed. He
was thrown from the vehicle, and
after shooting through several feet of
air landed on the pavement with such
force as to badly wrench his knee and
shoulder, besides receiving a number
of other painful bruises. A lady who
refused to give her name was also
bruised by being thrown from her
seat. The other passengers and the
carmen escaped Injury. .The Alcatraz

Oakland/Office San Francisco Call.
v-'lllS Broadway, Feb. 14.
Little Tom McKeon, the 9-year-old son
of Matthew McKeon, residing at 736 Cen
ter street, had his right leg caught be
tween the spokes of a rapidly moving
peddler's wagon this afternoon and ex
perienced one of the most remarkable
narrow escapes from death on record. He
was hurled about with the revolution of
the wheel and his leg was so badly
broken that he will probably have to lose
It. He may die.
The boy is a pupil In Miss Abbott's class
at the Tompklns School on Fifth street,
near Linden. Aa ha reached the street
after his class had been dismissed he
was invited by Manuel Sllva. a West Oak
land peddler, to ride home with him. The
peddler already had Earl Reader, another
12-year-old schoolboy, by his side. The
wagon stopped and Tommy McKeon was
In the act of getting aboard. He had
reached the wheel step at the hub and
was about to climb up to the scat, when
the horse suddenly shied. The Jolt caused
the boy to slip and his right leg became
entangled between the spokes and, losing
hia grip, his body was hurled around with
great velocity by the revolution of the
wheel. When Sllva finally succeeded in re
gaining control of his horse and the
wagon was stopped little Tommy's form
hung limp, head down. The wheel and
body of the wagon were blood-besprlnkled.
The boy was carried to the .Receiving
Hospital unconscious. Drs. Stratton,
Rowe and Porter were, promptly sum
moned. Although the boy had regained
consciousness and related the particulars
of the accident as he lay qn the operating
table, hia condition from the shock was
such that the necessary amputation of the
leg was delayed. The doctors deemed that
it might prove fatal. The knee cap was
gone and four inches of the femur was
exposed. His condition this evening is
such that It Is feared he may die.

Competition Becomes So Strong That
the Southern Pacific .Has Pro
jected a New Route From
Los Angeles to Ogden.
H. E. Huntington, J. C. Stubbs, R. P.
Schwerln and William Sprouie returned to
their offices in the Southern Pacific build
ing yesterday afternoon from the south-
em part of the State. Mr. Huntington,
who has been East for some time paot,
returns to this city with his authority
fully restored and as the acknowledged
representative of his uncle. on this coast.
He has no official title, but is, neverthe
less, the ranking ofllcer of the Southern
Pacific and the personal representative of
the president of the road at the San
Francisco end.
Mr. Huntington when seen yesteioay
gave out the information that the South
ern Pacific had purchased the Carson ana
Colorado Railway, a line running from
Mound House, Nov., to Keeler, lnyo
County, in this State, a distance of abcut
193 miles. Connected with this property
is a short seven-mile branch from Junc
tion to Candelaria, in Nevada, which was
also purchased by the Southern Pacific
According to Mr. Huntington the reason
of this purchase is to afford the Southern
Pacific Company a shorter and more di
rect line from Los Angeles and Southern
California points to the East.
Some time ago the company made ap
plication at the Government Land Ollice
at Independence, in lnyo County, for a
right of way from Mchave to Keelor. a
distance of between eighty and a hun
dred miles. Connecting with the Southern
Pacific line at the former point, a broad
gauge road will be constructed through
San Bernardino and lnyo Counties to
Keeler, where It will be joined to the re
cently acquired property.
This railroad is now a narrow-gauge
affair, but will be remodeled and made
Into a modern broad-gauge road and will
be connected at Its northern end, some
where in the vicinity of Churchill, with
the Central Pacific by a link, some thirty
miles long, which is to be constructed so
as to join the main line of the Central
Pacific somewhere In the vicinity of
Wadsworth. This will give the Southern
Pacific a through line from Los Angeles
and the southern part of the State to
Ogden and all points in the East.
The necessity of such a move on the
part of the Southern Pacific Company has
been apparent for a long time past and
has been made even more necessary by
the recent action on the part of the Ore
gon Short Line, which has started the
construction of a line from Central Idaho
to Southern California. The Santa te
already possesses the most direct and
feasible route from the lower end of our
State to -the East, and when the Idaho
line is finished It would have the «jfre<jt
of placing the Southern Pacific in a very
cramped position between its two rivals
had it not some direct outlet of its owu
to depend on. ,
Moreover, the new line, besides devel
oping and acquiring the business of a

Columbia and Dalny
Vostok Meet.
Steamer Kinau Arrives From Maka-
well With Sugar— Cleveland Sails
for Kahului — Main-Street
Wharf to Be Extended.
The transport Dalny Vostok arrived
from Manila via Nagasaki yesterday. At
the latter port the officers had some
'trouble with the Chinese crew, and In con
sequence all the Mongolians deserted.
Japanese were shipped to fill the vacan
cies and the vessel made the run to Sari
Francisco in twenty-two days, which Is a
; fair performance considering the firemen
and coal passers did not know the easiest
way to handle the furnaces. Captain
Erickson, who went out aa master of the
vessel, left her In Manila, and Captain
Gow, who was formerly chief officer of
the transport Tacoma, brought her home.
Captain Erickson was sick when he left
: here, and his ailment becoming worse he
left the vessel and went homo via Hong-
The Dalny Vostok and the Columbia
had probably the most unique experience
In the history of old ocean. They were
in company on Christmas day and
gammed. The Columbia had the head
quarters and band of the Forty-seventh
Regiment and a few companies aboard,
while the rest of the men were on the
Dalny Vostok. A stage was erected on
the Columbia's quarterdeck and another
on the Dalny Vostok amidships. A double
concert was held,, speeches were made,
toasts given and everybody on the two
transports fraternized as though they
were ashore and holiday good-fellowship
! was the order of the day.
• The Dalny Vostok "and the Columbia
left here on November 23 last with the
Forty-seventh Regiment for Manila. They
reached ' Honolulu together and left that
port in company December 11. On Christ
mas day they were both within a week's
sail of Honolulu, and the crewa of both
steamers determined to have a right royal
celebration. At noon, after the observa
tion had been taken on both vessels and
both navigating officers were satisfied
that it was really Christmas day the ves
sels came together under a slow bell. It
was a perfect day and the ocean was a
"sea of glass." All hands were mustered
for the show and the band of the regi
ment was told to bring out all Its musje.
Tables were laid on the deck of each vessel
and many a toast passed from ship to
ship. When the men on the Dalny Vostok
were ready to put forth a singer they
would shout the name of the song and the
band on the Columbia would begin the
accompaniment. In this way songs and
speeches and toasts were interchanged
until darkness fell upon the scene.
The transport Aztec, which left here
January 10 for Manila via Hilo, H. L» has
at last been heard from. Owing to the
plague in Honolulu no news has come
from the other islands of the group, and
in consequence no news has come from
the outside ports. The Aztec reached
Hilo on January 19 and landed her stock
the next day. Nine of the animals died
during the passage and had the stop not
been made at least half of ¦ the cargo
would have been lost, as the animals were
not healthy when shipped. Ab it was their
week's stay at Hawaii did them a great
amount of good and they were aa fat as
butter when- put back aboard the Aztec
on January 26. The vessel was to have
sailed the next day for Manila, but was
detained until January 29 on account of
heavy weather. While at Hilo the trans
port took aboard 30,000 gallons of water
and considerable feed for the animals.
While towing a barge out to her the
launch Lurline was swamped, but luckily
the captain and crew escaped. The Ht
tle steamer was afterward raised and Is
now In good shape again. Captain C. P.
Matson of the ship Falls of Clyde, who
went down as pilot of the Aztec, and
Captain Johnson of the bark Roderick
Dhu took charge of the landing and load-
Ing again of the Aztec's cargo, and Cap
tain Trask of the transport says thai the
work was better done than it was in Hon
olulu, with all its facilities, on thu last
voyage of the Aztec.
The transport Columbia docked at the
Harrtson-street wharf yesterday. The
Dalny Vostok is in quarantine. The Sher
man began loading for Manila and will
probably get away next Monday. The
Indiana has been rechartered and will go
on the drydock to-day. She will then load
for the Philippines. •
The Hawaiian steamer Kinau arrived
frcm Makaweli yesterday with a load of
sugar for Alexander & Baldwin. Di.
Kinyoun placed her in quarantine and the
vessel wlu be fumigated before she is al
lowed to dock. Owing to the plague on
Oahu Island there has been no communi
cation between Kauai and Honolulu, so
the planters have been forced to put on
an extra steamer In order to get some of
their products to a home port. The Kinau
will discharge as quickly as possible and
go back with a load of general merchan
dise to Makaweli.
The steamer Cleveland, under charter
to Alexander &. Baldwin, sailed for Kahu
lui and Hana. Hawaiian Islands, yester
day. She will bring back a cargo of sugar
The assistant cook mado trouble at Hailing
