"The only reason I can assign for the
cowardly assault," said Perry, "is that I
have had a bill against McClung for col
lection for some time, and he possibly
felt aggrieved that I asked him for the
money."
Perry said he was walking along Mont
gomery str # eet between 12 and 1 o'clock
yesterday 'afternoon, and just as he
passed the corner of Sutter street Mc-
Clung came up behind him and struck
him on the head and arm with either , a

then ran away. The blow on his arm

PRENZIED at the sight of his aged
mother lying on the floor uncon
scious from the effects. of having'
been bitten, "kicked and beaten in r
a shockingly brutal manner -'by
Otto Hell wig, a burly bartender, Robert
Hillen grabbed a revolver and after ' a
struggle succeeded in killing the old wom
an's assailant. ' The shocking tragedy oc
curred shortly after noontime yesterday
just outside of the front door of the fam
ily liquor store and saloon at iSOl'Devlsa
dero street, of which Mrs. A. A. Hillen,
Jhe woman whom Hellwig assaulted, is
\he proprietress. Hellwig was employed
as a bartender by Mrs. Hillen. The son
who. did the shooting Is the manager of
the place.
Hellwig attacked Mrs. Hillen in the bar
room while he was in a drunken frenzy,
and before her son Robert could stop
him succeeded in blackening one of her
eyes, breaking a " rib and inflicting sev
eral ugly bites on her arms and hands.- .
Hellwig, who had been employed by
Mrs. Hillen for the last five years, was
given to heavy drinking at times. He
was intoxicated yesterday morning when
he opened the place, and when Mrs. Hil
len. who lives upstairs, came down- she
scolded him for reporting for work in
such a condition. = Hellwig 'resented the
scolding Mrs. Hillen gave him and .warm
words ensued.
Later young Hillen came into the place
to report for duty and got Into an alter
cation with Hellwig Qver the latter's con
dition, which led to the brutal beating of
Hillen's mother and the shooting of .Hell
wig. The details are best Atold In the
statement which Hillen made to Chief of
Detectives' Martin' last- flight. It is as
follows:
When I came in from lunch ' I noticed that
Kellwig had been drinking. He was only
half dressed and I asked him to put his collar
on. My mother whistled down the talking tube
to me not to go out this afternoon. as Otto had
said he would, quit. I tried. to talk him into
staying, but to no avail. I ; went to the tube
and told my mother that Otto . was ' going. She
came down stairs. Otto was making a' terrific
racket, throwning things around • his room,
crying out and swearing. • I went to his door
ana told him to stop his noise or I would break
tho door la He wouldn't do it, so I broke in
the panels of the door and reached 'for the
key. but he had taken it out and was standing
on a chair looking over the panel and laughing
at me.. I went to the telephone and phoned
for a policeman to the O'Farrell-street station.
Otto was still making a big racket. ' ; I went to
the door to look for a policeman, and when I
returned he had cone into the closet of his
room. I cried to my mother not to let him
go until the police came. When I again went
to the front door he was climbing out of
the window into the street with nothing on ex
cept his pants and shirt. As soon' as he saw:
me he made a rush at me. . I ran -in > the side
door and tried to lock it, but 1 he , got there ¦'
before I could do it. "He came; in and, said
that the room belonged , to til m' and that' 'he
could do as he pleased. I-then weht be- ;
hlnd the bar to take charge.- as he was in'no
fit condition. When he. started. to come behind
the bar I warned him that' he had no-business
there. He retorted that he'd "see about that,,
and grabbed a. bottle and; struck at. 1 me.y My
mother got the bottlcfrom him arid'.I. tried to
throw him to the floor, but was unsuccessful,
as I was nearly exhausted. * He r then v seized a

The cases quoted for Registrar 'U'alsh are
under entirely different statutes from that of
California. The Supreme Court of this State,
when it ordered the names to be placed under
both party designations, . practically ignored
the decisions of the other States. Hollowing,
out the line and theory of decisions hereto
fore rendered- in this State, especially in Farn
ham vs. Boland, if there are two crosses under
different tickets it throws out the ballot as
to that vote. It is the same as if you voted
for tvro rival candidates for the same office.
In the case of Farnham vs. Boland the court
held that the cross must be placed opposite
the name but once, no matter how often that
name appears on the ballot. ¦ .
Thomas D. Riordan, who will appear
before the Election Board this morning
on behalf of the Republicans, said yester
day:
The case of Kills vs. Glaser. 51 N. W.
Jtep., CIS, of Michigan.is on all fours. The
court at first held that such ballots were
to be deemed invalid upon the ground
that The crosses so placed constituted dis
tinguishing marks. Upon a rehearing this
ruling • was reversed, .largely .upon the
ground that voters had probably acted
In reliance upon certain opinions of the
Attorney General, which had been pub
lished for their instruction.
To now hold in this case, under the condi
tions -existing as aforesaid, and as alleged in
the petition, that all of these ballots so marked
contained, by reason alone of the additional
unnecessary cross, a distinguishing mark, re
quiring them to be entirely rejected, would
be doing great injustice to the voters, who
may have so marked their ballots honestly and
with the uett intentions, as well as violence to
the statute.
Registrar Walsh was served yesterday
with several authorities on the matter.
The first Is the case of Swain vs. Pease,
42 Pacific, 750, a Wyoming case. Mrs.
Swain's name as candidate for County
School Superintendent was printed twice
on the same official ballot, once on the
Democratic ticket and once' on the Peo
ple's party ticket. In that case the court
says:
The matter was brought up by friends
cf E. J. Llvorr.ash, Democratic and. Labor
candidate for Congress in the Fourth Dis
trict. ¦ Mr. Livernash's name appears
first on the Democratic ticket j in the of
ficial ballot and then again on, a line al
niQst horizontally to the right, where the
Labor party's ticket begins. It was seen
that the ordinarily careless voter, after
stamping the cross opposite the name in
the Democratic ticket, would be likely to
place a cross opposite* the same name In
the Labor ticket.
A matter of great interest to the voters
of. this city will be argued at 9 o'clock
this morning before the Board of Elec~
ticn Commissioners. The question to be
decided is whether j a ballot ¦ shall be
thrown out or counted when the cross is
stamped twice for the same candidate,
the name appearing twice on the official
ballot under the heading of different par
ties. .
As a result of the rise in wheat flour
advanced 25 cents a barrel yesterday. The
wholesale quotations are $4 and $4 25 per
barrel for family brands and $3 SO and
$4 , for bakers. Retail prices . are from
25 to 3714 cents higher.
In the matter of the advance of wheat
the situation is growing still worse for
i he Big Four. Agents of the grain manip
ulators have been scouring the State and
offering handsome prices for wheat with
which to flil their contracts, but the
growers remain obdurate and will -not re
lease their crops at the figures offered.
At Fresno $1 30 a bushel was bid and re
fused; in Colusa 51 27 has been freely prof
fered but there have been no purchases.
The conditions are the same in Stockton
and Modesto. Spot wheat in San Fran
cisco is worth ?1 35 per bushel, but the
transactions are light. May wheat opened
yesterday morning at $1 3594 and after a
recession to $1 So it advanced to $1 36^.
December product opened at $1 36, dropped
to }l 35 and closed at 51 35"».
To wholesale trade the yrices will be a?
I'olicws: To consumers using: 1 to 5 cans in
rlUFive daily, 00 icnts per can; over 5 cans and
up to 10 cans daily, 55 cents per can; 10 caci

Drivers are pl-edgred ¦ not to deliver milk at
Jt-ss than above prices.
The minimum price to be charg-ed for milk
¦Rill be 51.50 per month for one pint and 52 60
for a quart; extra pints will cost 5 cents and
extra quarts 8*4 cents. Single pints are not

rate will be as follows:
Secretary A. Dijeau says that the union
¦will assist the employers in the matter of
sustaining the new prices. The dairymen,
on account of the Increase in expenses,
have advanced the cost of milk as follows:
At the dairymen's meeting 1 , more than
150 representatives were present. After
much discussion it was decided to pay
drivers, who are now receiving ?C0 a
month for a 32-hour day, 575 a month
with the concession that they will work
but 10 hours. Extra work is to be paid
for at the rate of 40 cents per hour.
Drivers who board with their 'bosses and
who have heretofore received $40 a month,
are to have an increase of $15 per month.
The dairymen also agree to employ none
but union men.
The advance in the price of milk, flour
and other commodities is ; the principal
topic of conversation in the market places
and among householders of the city. At
a recent meeting of the Dairymen's Asso
ciation and Milk Wagon Drivers" Union
it was decided to increase the wages of
employes and to charge more for the lac
teal fluid. Flour has advanced twenty
five cents a barrel and the indications are
that it will go higher. The raise in price
is caused by the action of. the farmers in
holding back their supply of wheat, that
the Big Four may be forced to pay a
desired price, because of the Australian
failure.

Court Findings May Affict
Important Cases
The Bank of California encountered ita
first obstacle yesterday in its efforts to
prove that the city had no right to assess
Its franchise for more than $10,000 and In
cidentally to recover from the city treas
ury the sum of J12.1S7 76, which the cor
poration had paid a3 taxes. The obstacle
was in the nature of an adverse decision
from Judge Sloss. The court held that
the, franchise was properly assessed and
that the. money paid as taxes could not
be recovered. .
The decision docs not affect the hun
dred or more other suits that are now
pending before the courts. It has, how
ever," a direct bearing on the cases of the
Pacific States Telephone Company and
the Wells Fargo Company Bank. These
corporations not only objected to the as
sessment placed on their franchises by
Assessor : Dodge, but Absolutely refused
to pay their taxes. They sued out a writ
of Injunction in the United States Courts
prohibiting the Tax Collector from col
lecting taxes from thenS. In view of the
decision rendered by Sloss, the City At
torney will now in all probability com
mence proceedings to have the injunc
tion dissolved. .
The franchise of the'Bank of California
was assessed by Dodge in 1900 at $730,000
and the tax on this amount aggregated
J12.1S7 76.. The bank, paid this stun and
then brought suit to recover It on tha
ground that the assessment was exces
sive. In previous years the franchise had
only, been valued at $10,000.
Inmates of Belden Place Fined.
The five keepers and twenty-one in
mates of houses in Belden place who were
arrested Saturday night by Chief Witt

mates $5.

early yesterday morning by hanging him
self to an apple tree. He placed a box
under the tree and standing on tha'box
tied the noose around his neck, kicked
the box away" and strangled himself." The
body was found at half past 6 o'clo<-*
yesterday- morning partly resting on tha
ground.
.An ordinance was passed to print by
the Board of Supervisors yesterday de
claring the Intention of the board to ad
vertise for bids for the sale of a fifty
year franchise for the installation of an
electric burglar alarm system. The fran
chise will include the privilege of tearing
up the streets for the purpose of laying
conduits for connecting wires. The San
Francisco Electric. Protective Association
has already petitioned for the franchise,
and under the Broughton act must be the
highest bidder in order to secure the
franchise. - .
The Board, of "Works was requested to
inform the Board of 'Supervisors as to
what work Is required on Van Ness ave
nue to place the thoroughfare In good
condition, and more particularly as to the
work required to be done thereon near
O'Farrell street. The board was also re
quested to advise whether there is suffi
cient money under its control to pay for
the work necessary . to be done.
The petition of property owners that
the sewer in Harrison street, between
I if th and Sixth streets, . be placed in
good condition was referred to the Street
Committee.
PAPERING OF WALLS.
The ordinance prohibiting the papering,
tinting or kalsomlning of walls in hotels,
lodging-houses or in buildings occupied
by at least thre,e families living separate
ly therein without first removing the old
tinting or kalsominlng- . therefrom was
passed to print.
Ordinances were finally passed desig
nating the location and width of Clemen
tina street, between First and Third
streets; dedicating certain lands in block
8 of the Flint tract " for park purposes:
granting permission to -John Rosenfeld's
Sons to erect a seven-story office building
on the corner of Sutter and Stockton
streets; authorizing the Tax Collector te
expend $3500 for the omployment of clerks
to collect excess taxes, and providing for
