numbers to-night at Beckers Hall
to listen to the expounding of
campalgm issues by the nomi
nees on the Republican ticket. Warren OI
ney, candidate for Mayor, and W. J. Bac
cus, candidate for Councilman from the
ward, were the principal speakers of the
evening, but all the candidates were there
and all received enthusiastic receptions.
Frank Barnet swung the gavel, and in
calling the meeting together expressed the
hope that all sixth warders would roll up
a majority for the ticket Buch as they
have been wont to roll up In years gone
by. Continuing be said:
I fe*l the same spirit of enthusiasm Is among
vou now that has always been there. It Is our
duty to put in offlc* men who will be true to
the 'interests of the city. There Is always strife
between parties, but experience shows that It Is
always safe to put Republicans In places of.
Warren OIney pleaded for men in office
who will arouse the city from its lethargy.
He entered upon an exposition of the
water situation, which ho said had be
come bo intolerable that the people were
ready to burst with rage at the water
company. Relief for this condition, he
said. Is only to be found In electing com-
Prominent Lumberman and True
Sportsman Is Suddenly Called
Charles Klein, the prominent lumber
dealer, died suddenly early Wednesday
morning in his" apartments at the An
gelus Hotel on Stockton street, near Pine.
Death was caused by acute congestion
of the lungs. Mr. Klein had been suf
fering for some time with the grip, but
did not take to his bed until four qr five
hours before his death.
Mr. Klein was born in Liverpool, Eng
land, and came to this country when a
small boy. He lived in Colorado for a
number of years and later came to this
city to accept a position as manager for
the Humboldt Lumber Company. Of late
years he had been in the lumber business
for himself, being very successful.
The fleceased was a true sportsman, be
ing a prominent member of the San Fran
cisco Fly-casting Club and a lover of
hunting and boating, a great deal of
which he found time for. He was but 42
years of age at the time of his death.
The funeral will take place this after
noon at 2:15 o'clock from Trinity Chapel.,
Bush and Gough streets. The remains
will be buried in Odd Fellows' Cemetery.
Charge Is Grand Larceny.
Lawrence Waters, a groceryman from
Napa. was arrested yesterday evening at
Third and Minna streets by. Officers J.
Regan and P. O'Connell and charged with
grand larceny. He is wanted in Napa for
robbing a man there - named John
Kelly of a horse and buggy. Waters ad
mitted last night that he had stolen the
horse and buggy, but added that' Kelly
owed him money and wouldn't pay! ,-^f '.
petent and honest men. He continued:
Oakland can get good government. It can
eliminate the Contra Costa Water Company and
Oakland -will become the city It ought to be.
All parties except that of the labor unionists in
Oakland are agreed upon this subject. It Is
the duty or the laboring man to Join with us
In this fight and make the verdict unanimous.
On retiring Mr. OIney was assured by
Chairman Barnet that the Sixth Ward
would render an almost unanimous vote
next- Monday for him."
"So I have heard," replied Mr. OIney;
"and I feel confident of your entire sup
W. J. Baccus, the especial favorite of
the Sixth Ward Republican Club, under
the auspices of which the meeting was
held, was received with a great burst of
applause. Mr. Baccus received the union
labor nomination, too, and he made haste
to commit himself to stand by the* labor
ing men on all issues, but he expressed his
appreciation of the importance of other is
sues by saying:
The water question is the most serious that
confronts the people now. I am for a muni
cipal water supply and I believe we'll get It,
and along with that I don't think that we ought
to forget that the city needs better streets, bet
ter schools and a city hall. ,
Among the other speakers were G. E.

Breed, Felton Taylor, F. C. Turner and
B. C. Cuvelller.

had raided the three places in question,
one at 104 Waverley place, one at 10 Ross

Navy Secretary Decides
What Vessels Shall
Be Called.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
WASHINGTON. March 5. — Vermont,
Kansas and Minnesota will be the names
of new 16,000-ton battleships authorized by
Congress, while the 13,000-ton battleships
will be christened Idaho and Missis
sippi. The Board of Construction has
been asked by the Secretary of the Navy
to immediately prepare designs for the
16,000-ton ships in order that circular bids
may be issued to shipbuilding firms as
soon as possible.
Were It not for the fact that the stat
utes provide that first-class battleships
shall be named after States of the Union,
Secretary Moody would have probably
christened one of the ships in honor of
the Constitution, the famous frigate-of
war or 1S12. In his next annual report
Secretary Moody will recommend legisla
tion to permit battleships to have names
other than those of States.
Vigorously Oppose the Appointment
o* Ex-Attorney General Hart
to Vacant Judgeship.
SAN JOSE. March 5.— The attorneys of
San Jose are up In arms over the report
that Governor Pardee has offered the
vacant Superior Judgeship in this county
to W. II. H. Hart, ex-Attorney-General
of the State and now a resident of Palo
Alto. Hart has been approached by a
close friend of the Governor and asked
if he would accept the appointment, and
now has the matter under consideration,
lie will give an answer to-day or to-mor
row. While Hart, lives at Palo Alto, in
this county, his office is in San Fran

The fact \hat Hart lives many miles
from the county seat and has never been
associated with the loca! bar causes an
A meeting of the Santa Clara County
Bar Association win be held in a day or
two, and the selection of a man for the
judgeship by secret ballot will be made.
The Governor will then be asked to name
the man selected by the attorneys.
General Harf was asked to-day in re
gard to the Judgeshiy offered him, and
gave the following Interview over the
telephone from his office in San Fran
"I am not at liberty, to state the name
of the person who asked me if I would
accept the appointment if an offer should
come. I have a good practice here in San
Francisco, and I do not need the place.
I might, under certain circumstances,
consent to occupy the bench temporarily
for the purpose of disposing of the large
batch of criminal cases that have accum
ulated since Judge Lorigan's retirement,
but I couldn't think of occupying the
place for the term. In my opinion, a se
lection could readily be made from the
large number of good lawyers in San
Jose. There seems to be no necessity in
going to Palo Alto to find a Judge. Palo
Alto is a quiet, law-abiding town and has
no criminal business to 3peak of.'.'

Vast Audience in the First Congregationa
House of Worship Hears Grand Instrumeni
in Conjunction With "The Messiah" of Hande
OAKLAND, March 5.— An atten
tive audience filled the First
Congregational ¦ Church
evening, eager to listen to the
first public .recital , of the splen
did . new organ ¦ which has Just
been erected. This, In conjunction
with the presentation of Handel's
Oratorio, ¦ "The Messiah," made the
occasion a memorable one and the de«
mand for invitations far outnumbered the
¦eating capacity of the church.
The oratorio was given under the direc
tion of Alex T. Stewart, that very pains
taking musician, who is rapidly winning
laurels as an efficient leader. The chorus
of 200 voices was evenly balanced and the
well-sustained and clean-cut work gave
ample evidence of the long and careful
training under Mr. Stewart. The soloists
were Mrs. Grace Davis Northrup, Mrs.
Carroll Nicholson, J. Frederick Yeaco and
Ralph T. Fisher, and all well deserved tha
applause that greeted the delightful ren
dering of the oratorio's many difficult pas
The new organ is one of the finest in
the State and was built by the Kimballs
of Chicago,. who have erected many nota
ble Instruments, including the great or
gans in Grace Church, Chicago; the Tem
ple, at Washington, D. C, and the Salt
Lake Tabernacle.
: ¦ The instrument contains all the most re
cent Improvements and the large propor
tion of sixteen and eight feet stops in
sures a solidity and variety of tone, with
out any sacrifice of brilliancy. The instru
ment answers readily to delicate manipu
lations. The flute tones are remarkably
sweet and the "strings" are very orches
' tral. The great variety % of stops, with
the dignified diapasons as a foundation,
combine to \ form an organ that Is most
satisfying and does credit to those citi
zens of Oakland who contributed to the
fund for Its purchase.
Will B. King, Oakland's gifted young or.
ganist, presided at the instrument and
his solo work was greeted with a most
flattering burst of applause.
The organ was purchased by subscrip
tion and cost nearly $15,000. Too much
praise cannot be given the pastor, the
Rev. Charles R. Brown, who has been In
defatigable in his efforts to secure this
treasure for his congregation.
Those in the chorus included the fol
lowing singers: .; ; r

Discusses the Alleged Packing Com
bine Case in Which He Granted
an Injunction.
LOS ANGELES. March 5.— Judge P. 8.
Orosscup of the United States Circuit
Court at Chicago has arrived In Los An
gble?. He Is traveling In a private car,
accompanied by several friends. In
speaking of the alleged packing combine
case, in which he granted a temporary In
junction, Judge Grosscup said:
I do not apprehend that the packing com
panies will car* to proceed with the case.
The whole case was gone over pretty thor
oughly, and. of course, my ruling in granting
the temporary injunction was evidence I would
adher* to it.
Certain of tha charges against the packers
In that cas» were* that they refrained from
bidding against each other in the purchase of
cattle from tha fanners, and. at other time*,
bid up fiercely to induce shipments, the cat
tle arriving at the stockyards, where they
would prove low. However, I do not know
that my decision regarding th« interference of
tha Federal courts will amount to anything.
Of four!', tha new anti-trust bill has ar
ranged the matter so that Federal courts now
have the authority of Congress direct to act.
The Elklns bill certainly will itrengthen the
interstate commerce act, but how far any
remedy will affect the situation is difficult n
estimate at this time. It is a fact though
that the railroads do not wish to grant re
I agree- with Judge Philips on this act. Rail
road magnates will not violate an injunction
because, If they should be found to b« In con
tempt, the court could institute an Inquiry
right down the line to the very source from
which emanated the order causing such con
tempt. The railroads would like to secure full
rates from all sources, however, but wish to
be sure- that rival roads or smaller branch roads
are not cutting: on them. Tha new bill will
regulate this proposition.
As to breaking up the trusts. th» future will
have to demonstrate how effective the Kiktrm
bill will be. Even with an anti-trust law in
effect it ts necessary to secure full and com
plete proof of the fact that the Interstate com
merce act is being violated before the courts
can act. Corporations ar» not leaving such evi
dence with easy reach of tba authorities.
