Courtney Trial Commences. line of questioning on Booker's figures. drew the conclusion that under the pres ent ordinance the consumers were paying $115,083 90 more to the company than under the ordinance of the preceding fiscal year. Braunhart desired to know why two divi dends had been passed by the company notwithstanding that the receipts had largely increased. * Attorney Kellogg said that information on the point would be given by Pelham Ames, the secretary, as soon as. he recovers from an illness. Numerous questions were propounded by members of the board regarding the items charged to operating expenses which amounted to $454,013 77. Secretary Howard explained in detail the specific items and Braunhart took exception to a charge of $765 45 for a . man to watch the Portola reservoir, which is not being used to sup ply water. .V.^',,*.. OENEBAL EXPENSES. Secretary Howard stated that the Item of $11,698 97 for general expenses included advertising and to pay for meetings of the trustees of the company. Braunhart point ed out that the company's statement showed that but $97 « was spent for ad vertising and asked if the difference rep resented the cost of trustees' meetings. Howard promised to furnish an Itemized statement of the expenses. Regarding the item of legal expenses, $23,098 53. of which W. F. Herrin received $10,000. Braunhart desired to know if Her rin or Attorney M. B. KellogK is engaged in litigation concerning lands, reservoir sites or watersheds which are not in act ual u$e for supplying water. Kellogg said that he and Herrin had no connection with such litigation. Kellogg said he was the attorney of the Suburban Water Com pany prior to its absorption by the Spring Valley Water Company, but he had never examined a title for the first named com pany. Braunhart called attention to the employment of a man as land agent at $275 per month and held that the item should not be charged to operating ex penses. Exception was also taken to a charge of $150 to pay a man who collects land rents. Howard said that none of Bchussler's. salary was charged to con struction account, although his services were In demand in the building of new improvements. The petition of Charlei Wesley Reed that he be allowed to ask certain ques tions of the Spring Valley Company at the next meeting was granted. Felix Lengfeld filed a report on his analyses of water taken from North and South Lakes Merced showing that the sam ples represent a good palatable water. Pro fessor Alonzo Taylor also filed reports of his analyses and concludes that the ab sence of the common colon bacillus Is strongly in favor of the palatabillty of the water, which, he says. Is within the rigid American standards for reservoir water. The board adjourned to meet next Fri day night to resume the Inquiry- DIRECTORS OF ORPHANAGE HOLD ANNUAL MEETING Reports Show That the Association Has Passed a Most Prosper ous Year. The annual meeting of the members of the San- Francisco Orphanage and Farm, r/hich is situated at San Anselmo, Cal., was held Monday afternoon In their .ooms at 920 Sacramento street. Mrs. X. D. RIdeout was In the chair. The reports of the different committees showed that the orphanage had passed a prosperous year. Mrs. RIdeout read a report on the pres ent condition of the orphanage, and stated that a number of Improvements were very necessary. She asked that an appeal be made to the Presbyterian church of this city to assist in raising $10,000 which will be necessary to make the desired Improvements. Mrs. P. D.

Ah Nong is a farmer, and has a small ranch near Antioch. He came to this city a few days ago to spend the China New Year's with his family. He went into the family joss house about 10 o'clock to call a curse upon the Hop Sing men. While Ah Nong stood before the altar three men of tho Hop Sing Society suddenly en tered the room, and while two held the door closed the thirti attacked Ah Nong. Strangely enough the assailant did not fire immediately, but. advancing upon Ah Nong, he dealt his victim two Blows with the butt of his revolver, one upon the left arm and a second upon the right side of the* head. A3 Ah Nong staggered back ward the assailant turned his weapon and fired three shots in rapid succession. One of the shots missed, but a second struck the victim in the right shoulder blade, and ranged downward, lodging be tween the third and fourth ribs. Tho third shot took effect In the right breast Ah Wong, a Sen Suey Yeng man, is the latest victim of the Hop Sings. He was shot and seriously wounded yesterday afternoon at 1:15 in the Nong family joss house, at 1018 Stockton street. TrIE battle which is now waging in this city between the Hop Sing and Sen Suey Yengr tongs promis es to be a bloody and lasting one, and it is probable that a number of Chinamen will be killed before a truce can be made. Ivy's Valentine Partv. Ivy Chapter of the Ordef of the Eastern Star gave a valentine party' in Golden Gate Hall last night. There was a large number of members and visitors from other chan ten, who enjoyed a most pleasant even ing of dancing under the direction of th omcers of the chapter. r>urin K the grand march each participant was -given a sealed and numbered valentine. The ladles were given' Cupid's missive having num bers correspbnding to those Issued to lh e gentlemen and they were required to hunt for. the one' having the number corre sponding to theirs and they then became partners for the evening. During the in termission a fine collation was served. Detectives McMahon and Ed. Gibson successfully captured tho two Chinamen, Ju Wye,' alias Ju Louie, and Wong Din, who are suspected of shooting Ong Chung, the Chinese barber, at 10S Waver ly place, January 18. Ong Chung identi fied the two men as his assailants on that day, and they were booked at the Hall of Justice on a charge of assault to mur der. . and ranged upward, passing out at the base of the neck on the right side. The victim was removed to the Central Emergency Hospital, where Dr. Arm lstead successfully removed a large piece of the and extracted the bullet from between the ribs. Detective McMahon and a number of other officers were in the vicinity at the time of the shooting and heard the sound of the shots. They immediately rushed to the scene, but the assailants had made their escape through the hall and over the roof of an adjoining house. Ah Nong stated that he did not know the names of his assailants, but they were all Hop Sing men and he thought he would be able to identify them. The. two tongs have been at war since the. shooting of Wong Ah Dong, a Hop Sing man. Last Monday the score was balanced by the shooting: and killing of Chew Chung Yet, a Sen Suey Yeng man. Eut the shooting of Ah Nong again de mands the life of another Hop Sing man, and more shooting is hourly expected in Chinatown.

The efforts of Mrs. Ellen Crowley to se cure the annulment of th» marriage of her son Caleb to Mattie Chabonnett met with a setback In Judge Graham's court yesterday, when the case was called for trial, and the court put the matter over uniil March 5. The continuance was nec *gsary, as young Mrs. Crowley fainted when cummoned to take the witness -PARIS,- Feb. 10.— The lawyers for the various parties interested in the estate of Charles L. Fair and his wife, , who were killed In an automobile accident In France, are reticent about the latest suit brought by relatives' of Mrs. Fair to have the agreement made* some time ago set aside because, it is claimed. Fair died before his wife and therefore she Inherited his ektate. It is learned from a trustworthy source, however, that Dr. Perrlquet, who was called at : the time of . the accident, and keepers of the lodge at Pacy-sur- Kure, declare Mrs. Fair outlived her hus band by half an hour. Two other per sons who are now In Paris are of similar opinion. This makes five wltnessea in all m favor of th* latest contention of the relatives of Mrs. Fair. . THE DOCTOR'S STATEMENT. Zeigfeld says Fair was arranging at the time of his death to build him theaters in this city and New: York. "^i../ F. Zeigfeld Jr., husband of Anna Held, now performing with her "Sadie girls" at the Columbia, came near going on the last ride ever taken by Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Fair. A desire for a little more sleep saved him from going along and perhaps meeting death with his friends. Mr. Zeigfeld says: I crossed from New Tork with Mr. and Mrs. Fair and went with them to the Hotel Rltz in Paris. Fournler came there and wanted to sell Mr. Fair a new automobile. . "I have all the machines I want, said Mr. Fair "•This Is a new Mercedes," said Fournler, "and I want you to try It." "V;"'^ , 7 "I come over here, every year, said fair, "and buy a new machine, and when I Ket It to San Francisco it's no good. I don't want any more.". . ¦""-/' '¦' ~S' "* Tournier Induced him to try the one he had and Fair, when ha got back, promptly bought it for 70,000 francs. We went out riding with It in the Park and that very day ran ln»o and smashed another machine. Mrs. Fair said: "Charley,- you'll always have bad luck with that machine." . We all went to Trouville and the Fairs made several trios to Paris with the new automo bile. The night before the fatal accident we all attended a social function and stayed up until 4 o'clock the following; morning. Mrs. Fair Insisted on Charley going with her to Paris the next day, ho she could try on some dresses. They were s^t on my going, but I was- too sleepy and my life was saved • 1 hastened to the scene of tho accident, but neither myself nor any other friends of the deceased were allowed to take charge of the bodies nor, In fact, to go near them. Mrs. Oelrichs telegraphed to the proprietor of the Hotel Rltz to take charge of all the effects of h*r dead brother Rnd sister-in-law in their r£ims at that hotel. The American Consul sealed and locked the room later on. I don t know who may have, entered it in the mean 1 Tif'waa the general impression that when the crash occurred Mrs. Fair grabbed hold of her husband and that she still clunff to him when they were thrown out. ZEIGFELD JUST ESCAPES. A. question of jurisdiction. Charles L. Fair and his wife being residents of San Francisco at the time they were killed, may be raised and there may be a ques tion concerning the money already paid in settlement. It "is -said that much of this has already gone the way of ducats easily obtained. -,;••• W. K. Vanderbilt Jr., who married Vir ginia Fair and was the brother-in-law of. Charles L. Fair, Is expected In San Fran cisco in' a few days. Affairs here in con nection with the Charles U. Fair estate will probably receive some «f his at tention. „ ' "'„ :r * v } . Joseph Harvey and Charles !•. Neal, who helped arrange the settlement; Reu ben H. LJoyd, attorney for the Fair es tate, and Aylett R. Cotton, who repre sented Mrs. Nelson and her sons in the compromise, all say the Nelsons knew the facts concerning the deatns and the es tate, and that they seemed entirely satis fled with what they got. They signed an agreement of satisfaction and, it is said, this can only be set aside on the grounds that it was obtained through fraud and deceit. A dispatch from New York states that great difficulty is being experienced in serving the papers in the suit on Mrs. Oelrlchs. W. K. VANDERBH/T JR. COMING. The new suit cannot In any way affect fees already paid to those who negotiated the settlement and those who were paltl handsome amounts for this work, are in no way barred from selling their services again, now that the matter has been re opened, and getting another dip into the coffers of gold. ¦ The latest story from Paris Is that the doctor, who was called at the time of the accident says Mrs. Fair outlived her husband half an, hour and that there are now five witnesses in'all who will testify that he died first. Former Captain of Detectives Seymour of this city, who was pent to Paris by the Fair heirs to make an Investigation, declares he has positive proof that the wife died first. In view of the fact that Sirs. Xelson and her three soua, mother and brothers of the late Mrs. Charles L. Fair, seemed thoroughly satisfied with the settlement made those who arranged it were much surprised at the announcement that suit had been instituted by the Nelsons. Those who negotiated the compromise seem of the opinion that a private company has been formed to back the Nelsons in the expensive litigation that must ensue. There are some fat fees in prospect for lawyers, both here and in New York, and it is said that the sigh of disappoint ment which escaped a number of local attorneys when an agreement was reach ed and a 1 long period of litigation seem ingly avoided has jjiven way to gleeful anticipations of further inroads into the Fair strong box. Airs. Nelson, who is lying ill at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Laura Leon ard, at Vernon, N. J., is progressing to ward recovery. The old lady says she h»s given away $10O,<XK> of the $125,000 she received. This -will make it impossible for her to pay into, court the amount given her in case she is called upon to do so. i The question of which of the two died first in. the automobile accident in France that ended the lives of Charles L. Fair and his wife will be the principal point of battle If the suit cf Mrs. Fair's rela tives for a larger share of the millions left by her husband is brought to trial In New York. Tj,' EECEIPTS FROM RENTS. George E. Booker, bookkeeper of the j company, was the first witness examined and gave figures showing the half-yearly receipts from water rents from July 1, 1900, to December 31, 1902, which aggregat ed $501,907 06.- 1785,425 23, $848,850 22, $854. 722 14 and $&98.657 32. The receipts for bills against the city for the same period amounted to $112,811 27, $110,693 01, $83.1S5 $$, 58 and $84,647 18. The rents from the building owned by the company aggregate $22,500 for each half year. Booker estimat ed that the water rents from January 1, 1903, to June 30, l?03, would reach $920,000; receipts from city bills, $67,000, and rents from company's building, $20,000, or a total -cf $1,007,000. Supervisor D'Ancona, who* conducted a With complete data at his command the City Engineer values the system, including: .all rlxhts. lands and works at $4,700,4S3, or ?S.'i«,S21 07 less than the actual cost. Thts system challenges any similar works in the country for appropriateness and adaptability of design and for substantiality of construc tion, and it Is evident that the intrinsic value of the thus combined and developed proper ties and rights Is far in excess of what they hav<» cost. The Alameda. Creek system ha* been estimated below • its Intrinsic value by many millions of dollars. • ' The City Kngineer quotes in his lat« report the 4S90 acres of land adjoining the Calaveras reservoir at $51 per acre or $249,696. yet his estimate of the same property in his report of last year was . $005.7H0 or a decrease of $S0«.0e4. The total undervaluations made by the City Kngineerv amount to $4,167,800 of which Jl,080.0C0 la undervaluations of ' the water rights" to the peninsular system.' The City Kngiri»er "estimated the value of tho Spring- Valley Water Company's works at $2S,C24,:i$U. Adding to this sum the total of undervaluations — $4,107,800 — we have a total value of $32,192,1£9. which sum does not by far include the real and intrinsic value ht the res-^-voir sites, watersheds and rights of the Alameda Creek system. We have given the Board of Works every facility to get at the cost of the works, and it is not the fault of the company if the City Kngineer again in/ his estimate not only en tirely omits important works Jn constant uss. the actual cost of much of the peninsular sys tem and also in valuing the properties and rights of the Alameda Creek system much below the actual cash cost. An extract from our books showing the cash cost of the Ala meda Creek system at $5,537,304 07 up to January 1, 1903, was furnished the board. \ FIGURES AEE TOO LOW. Very Httla attention was paid by th« Board or bupervisors to our protest last year re garding these ominiiona and undervaluations and the result of the reductton of rates was a serious loss to the company in that the stock holders lost three months' interest out of twelve months in 1901, while during 1902 the hydrant rates having been slightly raised and domestic water Bales having somewhat in creased, the stockholders lost two months' In terest. The first business to come before the Board of Supervisors in Its investigation of the operations of the Spring "Valley Water Company last night preliminary to the fixing of water rates was the reading of a statement by Chief Engineer Schuss ler of the company, calling attention to the omissions and undervaluations con tained In the report of City . Engineer Grunsky appraising- the property owned by the corporation. Schussler says in his statement: F. Zeigfeld Jr. Tells How He Escaped Going on the 1 / Fatal Trip.
