PRISONER LEAPS FROM THE TRAIN : After leaving the express Company's office Spaulding had driven near the rail road crossing and . there had robbed the strong box, and, taking such articles as he could carry, had caught the train. The ' value, of the property taken from the express" box, -according, to the ex press company officials, is about J500, of which $300 was in money. These officials assert that they have no reason to j con ceal the value of the goods and deny that they are trying to minimize the loss. Spaulding 1 s bond of $1500, with a fidelity company as j surety, is more than suffi cient-to cover the loss. ¦ LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5.— There is no longer . any doubt as to who robbed the Wells, Fargo & Co.'s express wagon last night and abandoned the wagon in East lake Park, three miles from the depot, to which it should h.ave been driven. Charles R. Spaulding, driver of the wagon, was the thief and the peace offi cers throughout Southern . California are searching for him to-night. That he can escape from, them Is considered I improb able, for his description has been sent to every city, village and hamlet in this section of the State and his course is be ing followed by detectives and secret ser vice men. in the employ of the express company. At one time to-day the officers were only three hours behind'the fugitive, but they had already driven thirty miles and then learned that he had stolen a bi cycle to assist him in escaping, and had placed more than twenty miles between him 1 and. them. The detectives, worked on the case all night and early this morning officers were sent to the towns along the foothills on the line, of the Santa Fe Railroad. At La Manda Park it was learned that a young man answering the description of Spaulding had spent the night there. He had been ; this morning by a half dozen persons who, when shown Spauld ing' s photograph, identified it as the por trait of the man they had seen. Tak-' ing up the chase there, the officers fol lowed it for miles and finally learned that Spaulding had appeared at Azusa at noon riding, a bicycle, and had inquired the way to Pomona. Then all trace of him was lost, but. constables and deputy sher iffs throughout that section were notified to be on the . lookout, ; and it is expected that' he will be captured before twenty four hours shall have passed. It was learned to-day that Spaulding had boarded the blind baggage car of the Santa Fe overland train last night— the very, train for which the stolen express packages had been intended... He caught the train at a railroad crossing not far from the park in. which his wagon s was found later. Near La Manda Park he was found, on the train and was put off by a brakeman, assisted by i the express mes senger, who did not recognize him. Special Dispatch to The Call. LEARNING NEEDS OF THE DISTRICT . Meantime, the importers here say thaf the quarantine has little effect on the American meat supply since the bulk comes from the West, and it is merely a question of shipping the cattle by way of New York instead of Boston. Re garding the general question. of opening English ports to Canadian and Argentine live cattle, there Is not the slightest like lihood 'of the admittance of Argentine cattle until the Board of Agriculture is satisfied that the foot and. mouth disease has not only been stamped out in the Argentine Republic, but until the latter establishes an effectual quarantine against the surrounding infected ter ritory, of which there is no immediate prospect. ¦ •• On the other hand, the importers say that the opening^of British ports to Can adian live cattle Is not only Improbable, but If done would not favorably affect the English meat supply, because it is cheaper to sell Canadian range steers in the United States and ship them dressed to England than to import them alive here to be fattened for the market . LONDON, Dec. 5.— The Board of Agri culture has intimated its willingness to remove the 'embargo on cattle arriving from New England ports whenever the American Department of Agriculture considers that the outbreak is suppressed. The Board to-night issued an order per mitting the landing of cattle under cer tain restrictions from the -steamer Irish man, which' has arrived at Liverpool from Boston, the steamers Kansas and Victorian, due to-day at Liverpool from Boston and the steamer Cambrian, due at London from Boston.

These agitators had tried to stir up the workingmen against their employers, against other classes and against the throne and altar and at the same time they had most unscrupulously exploited, terrorized and enslaved them In order to strengthen their own power, not for the promotion of the welfare of the workingmen, but In order to sow hatred between the classes and dissemi nate cowardly slanders* from which noth ing, not even the grandest quality, the honor of German manhood, remained im mune. With such people the working classes, as honor-loving men, should have nothing more to do. , Emperor "William concluded with ask ing the deputation to send a comrade from their midst, a simple, unpretending man from the workshop, into the national Parliament. Such a man would be gladly welcomed as a working representative of the German working classes. The rep resentatives of other classes would will ingly work together- with such represen tatives, however many they might be.. The presence of the workmen, Emperor William showed that they had not disappointed him in the expecta tion he expresed at Essen and had helped to keep free from reproach the memory of his friend, the late Herr Krupp. The working classes were always the object of deep interest and solicitude to the Em peror. Theref dre he was Justified in ad dressing a word of warning to the work men. For years they had let themselves be led by agitators and Socialists, under the delusion that they ( mpst belong to that party' if they wished to better their posi tion. BRESLAU, Prussia, Dec. 5.— Emperor William, addressing a deputation of work ingmen to-day, made a bitter anti-Social ist speech, declaring it was a lie to say that workingmen had to rely on the So cialist party for a betterment of their po sition. The Socialists, he added, had ter rorized and trod the workingmen under foot and as men of honor they must have no more to do with them.

The Street Committee recommended an ordinance changing the name of the Great Highway driveway to Balboa boulevard and also reported • in favor of changing the name of Nineteenth avenue, from the park to Ocean avenue, to McKinley ave nue. . The committee recommended indefinite postponement of the proposed ordinance to prohibit the operation of rock-crushing machines within certain limits. A com mittee from the Cement Workers' Union appeared before the committee and pro tested against the measure in its present form. O. A. Tveitmoe stated that if the ordinance were to pass it would increase the price of rock and practically put an end to building operations. The Affiliated Contractors of San Francisco stated in a communication that the wages of men employed in various operations will be reduced, as the price of material would be increased. It was stated that rock crushing could be conducted on Telegraph Hill without blasting. At a meeting of the Board of Works in the morning, at which the Mayor was present, Gray Bros. granted thirty days within which to remove their rock crushing plant at Sansome and Green streets. Property-owners from the Potrero and South San Francisco appeared before the Supervisors' Street Committee yesterday for the purpose of securing Information as to the construction of the proposed shore line for which the .Southern Pa cific Company has petitioned for a fran chise. They notified the committee that they desired to be compensated for any damages , that might be done to their property by the changes in grades that are contemplated in the plans of 'the en gineers.

A grade change of 3.78 feet is contemplated at Fifteenth avenue and M - street | and If damage results to property compensa tion will be made by the Southern Pacific Company, Grunsky said.

BURGLARS BIND AND GAG WOMAN Mr. Potter of Berkeley put in much time yesterday in making settlements with people that Mr. Potter of Texas bunkoed. Last evening the bad check man was released from the City Prison. Mr. Potter of Berkeley says he is willing to pay Mr. Potter of Texas his transpor tation back to the Lone Star State. where his first funeral was supposed to have taken place. According to statements made by Mr. Potter of Berkeley to the police, his father went to Texas sixteen years ago. Three years later Mr., Potter of Berkeley received a dispatch informing him of tho death of Mr. Potter of Texas and asking ¦what disposition he desired made of the corpse of his father. He immediately wired to give the remains a fitting burial and to draw on him for the amount of the bill. Mr. Potter of Berkeley claim* that he sent a telegraphic order to de fray the expenses of his father's Inter ment and considered the matter as set tled and Mr. Potter of Texas dead. : When Mr. Potter of Texas rang up Mr. Potter of Berkeley on the City Prison tel ephone Wednesday and announced^ that it was his father talking, not from the grave, but from the Alameda Jail, the younger man doubted his .very senses and would not be convinced until he vis ited the prisoner and satisfied himself that his father really existed In tha flesh. . .

We -want every man In the service of the United Railroads to know that promotion is open to him.

Such men I am always will ing to encourage and assist. And such are the men who have been recently promoted. General Manager Chapman of the United Railroads of San Francisco Btands fcy the men he has promoted to higher positions on the various roads of this city. He states the promotions were based on merit alone and denies that the men bo promoted have been elevated because of service they rendered the company out side of their regular employment. - ) On the other hand, high officials of the Carmen's Union assert positively that the men so promoted in a number of In stances had . been suspended before they "were promoted. The names of Christian Strom, G. Guy and C. M. Tripp, who have been made timers and dispatchers, are cited by the union men as instances of this fact. These men were under sus pension before they were advanced over the heads of other men.\ The trio have eent their resignations to Division No. 205 Of the Street Carmen's Union. The resig r.a ions were received at the last meeting, but were put off- until next Wednesday night, when ' action will be taken. The union men strongly oppose accepting these resignations. They want the men expelled and .-the matter has aroused a great deal of feeling among the men. There are sixteen tinder suspension from the union for conduct unbecoming mem bers of the organization. Of this .num ber seven have been promotetd by Mr. Chapman. As was stated exclusively In The Call of Wednesday last, the general manager Issued a circular inviting the men to make application for promotion. Many mem bers of the union complied and of the S00 applications received but six or seven were promoted. Of this number more than half were under suspension. General Manager Chapman made the following statement to The Call: The promotions in. question are based on merit alone. This company does not maintain any sny system or encourage talebearers; all •we ask Is fair, honest service from our em ployes and in return we promise fair, honest treatment. FAILS TO INDICT EDWARD GRANEY None of the family could account for the woman's act, other than to ascribe It to her separation from her husband. Charles Baez could not be found last night. After the evening meal and having put to bed her little ones, Charlie, 3 years of age, and her 1-year-old babe, Irene, she kissed the sleeping tots good-night and went out onto the street. Then the de spondent woman decided to call upon Mrs. Lillian ' Hughes, an acquaintance, living at 618 Filbert street. When she announced herself at the house Mrs. Hughes was surprised; because Mrs. Baez had not; called upon her for a long time. Mrs. Baez at once asked Mrs. Hughes to go out with her, and they started back for Mr. Gallick's home. Mrs. Baez \ was carrying in her hand a baby's rattle and also a bottle, which was wrapped in blue paper. They took the Union-street car and transferred at Hyde street, Mrs. Baez appearing to be in the best of spirits and even telling her friend that she hoped to be soon reconciled to her husband. On arriving at her sister's house, Mrs. Baez lingered at the door and suddenly' she turned to her friend and said: "Come, let us walk down the street." They had not gone more than twenty paces when she asked Mrs. Hughes to hold her purse, and then,, putting the bottle to her mouth, began to swallow the contents. Mrs. Hughes smelt the carbolic add and dash ing the bottle from the woman's hand to the ground, dragged her into Adolph Bisch's grocery at Larkin and Pine streets, at the same time calling for help. The Emergency Hospital ambulance was summoned and in the meantime Dr. Harry Davis and Dr. W. H. Scholt gave what aid was In their power. Upon ar riving at the hospital It was found that Mrs. Baez had swallowed some of the acid and little hope of her recovery is expressed by the physicians. That she had contemplated suicide at least for some hours prior to her swal lowing the poison is evidenced In the fact that she carried a bottle of carbolic acid with her last, night, but it was folded in paper and no one knew of her desperate intention. , -Though It was apparent that the trouble between herself and husband had deeply affected. her never had there been an idea that she would attempt to take her own life. ¦• ¦ . - - .'

Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek. Mich. EffiSHSMH Ccffee was first discovered in the sixth century by an Arabian shepherd, who heving observed the goats of his nock skip about and display other signs of in- toxication after eating the coffee berry,' concluded to try Its effects on himself, and thus discovered its exhilarating property. This discovery proved the poor shep- hird's undoing, for he indiscriminately used large quantities, green, for Its ex- hileratlng effect and soon died, poisoned by Its use. In the sixteenth century it was intro- duced into France and was used so 6t:cng and excessively, particularly by the Parisians, that it was found to in- jure alike the complexion and digestion. This discovery prwented its general in- troduction into other European countries fcr the next century. fimce that period its growth has grad- ually spread through the civilized world, despite the -fact that pain and destruction Icllow Its path, dyspepsia having been hardly known before Its Introduction. It is a "nerve stimulant" and narcotic pol- 6on, and though In no sense a food, :s used for its stimulating principle, caf- feine, which excites the nerves unnatur- ally and wastes the reserve force of the body. Coffee drives the nerves for a time, Ftlmulating them beyond their natural function and using up all their reserve force. * After the first effects are past comes breaking down of the nerve cen- ters and general nervous derangement. Following this in many, but not all. cases, is a long train of misery, among •r hich the principal symptoms are dry- nt.es in mouth and throat, headache, ' bil- iousness, pains in stomach or abdomen, pain In eyes and head, loss of appetite, dyspepsia and so on through a long,' long list, but the one cause of all the different symptoms is the same. - , The nerves have been broken down; their reserve force is gone. Many of the symptoms of poisoning are: Extreme nervousness, restlessness, anguish ' of rrind and heart, excessive relaxation of body and brain, gloominess, inability to think correctly, sleeplessness at night, drowsiness in the morning, etc. A lady from Sebastopol, CaL, writes: "1 was a sick and poisoned .woman when 1 began to use Postum Food Coffee in place of Coffee and after two years' DISCOVERY OF COFFEE.
