ADVERTISEMENTS. , THE OLD RELIABLE Absolutely Pure THERE* IS* NO. SUBSTITUTE SANTA FE BUYS BOTH RAILROADS Reported Sale of Eureka Lines Is Fully Con firmed. Full confirmation of the reported *ale of the Eureka and Eel River Railroad, the California Northern and the exten sion of the former, known as- the Mid land roa<J # to the Santa Fe Company, as published in yesterday's Call, has beeii obtained from an authoritative source. Captain A. H. Payson, assistant to President Rlpler, yesterday stated that the story of the purchase Is true,- but he would not discuss the repoTt that his company Is aftrr ihe California and Northwestern road further than to sug gest that the acquirement of the latter property, would not be surprising as a piece of news. "Parties acting for the Santa Fe road." said Captain Payson, "have secured these small northern roads and in time the title to them will be transferred to our com pany. It Is alto true, as stated in The Call, that surveys are b*-ing made for a iurther extension of the Eureka and Eel River road and the Midland in a southerly direction, which means ihat eventually the Santa Fe will have rail connection Irora the San Francisco Bay to Eureka, and possibly farther north." When asked if there was any truth In the report? that the Santa Fe was plan ning to control the California and North- Tiestern road Captain Payson declined to volunteer any answer, but it was plain by his remarks that the road is anxious to own the Foster property. From another source yesterday it was learned that the deal for the roads was ••fleeted by Frank Murphy of Phoenix, president of the Prescott and Phoenix road # which is a part of the Santa Fe's Western system. Mr. Murphy was here recently to close the deal, and while here he was assisted by Director Cheney of the Santa Fe, whose presence in San Francisco caused little if any comment. Jt is well understood that the proposed extension of the new property mentioned by Captain Payson will be about eighty miles to the south, which is about half •the distance from the present southern i*>rminal of the Eureka and Eel River road to the northern terminal of the Cali fornia and Northwestern at Willitp. WILL HUBBY WOBK. That the Santa Fe purposes to hurry This work arid even extend it to Willits in ordor to make connections with the California and Northwestern is general ly believed. The first extension will be from Pepperwood to the northern boun dary line of Mcndocino County. In the meantime the California and Northwest ern will be carrying through its plans for a. northern extension of sixty miles from Ukiah, of which. a section of twenty-five miles to Willits has been already built and is in operation. Consequently when the remainder of the extension is completed the distance between the Santa Fe's proposed termi nal, eighty miles south of Pepperwood, to t lie contemplated terminal of the Califor nia and Northwestern will be only some thing like twenty-five or thirty miles. It was stated yesterday that until Eu- ADVEETISEMENTS. tOf Suffering From Heart Disease. I Would Not be Alive Today But For Dr. Miles* Heart Cure. Do not neelect the warning symptoms of a weak heart.

MANY WITNESS THIEF'S CRIME Large Sum of Coin Taken vL Prom a Restaurant Register. A daring theft occurred yesterday morning in the Epicure restaurant/ 133 Ellis street. While a number of people were eating their morning meal and when one of the proprietors had stepped to the rear of the establishment for a moment a crook entered, walked behind the coun ter and took $1S1 S5 from the cash regis ter and escaped. J. W. Gossett, one of the proprietors, opened the pla'ce before 6 o'clock in the morning. He commenced serving cus tomers and deposited a large amount of money with which to pay the day's bills in the cash register. Finally the butcher arrived and Gossett came from behind the counter and passed to the rear that he might give instructions as to the dis position of the meat. While in the kitchen he heard the bell on the register ring and for a moment did not pay any at tention to it, thinking that one of the waiters was making change. Some one called "thief" and he rushed out in time to see a man dash out of the door and make his escape up the street. Several people joined the pro prietor and waiter? in the chase, but the thief disappeared in a small alley. The police were immediately notified and de tectives placed on the case. It is sup posed that the crime was committed by members of a gang who have been operating In that section of the city for the last two months and tlfe officers ex pect to land some of them behind the bars in a short time.

A lease of the "Hotel Nymphia" prop erty at 733, 729 and 743 Pacific street was recorded yesterday from the Marin West ern Real Estate and Investment Company to John Donahue.

It is tho best. • reka gets a through rail connection with the San Francisco Bay its lumber traffic will continue by the water route, and part of this- the Santa Fe hopes to di vert at this end to its own lines running out of Point Richmond. The officials of the California and Northwestern still deny that there is any direct deal on between themselves and the Santa Fe people for the purchase of the road, although Jesse Ldlienthal, at torney for, the company, admitted yester day that the officers have been r.p p» oached ¦frequently of late by persons relative to the sale of the road. "For .a. .number, of months," said Mr. Lllienthal .yesterday afternoon, "we have been conscious of the fact that there was something In the air. A number of per sons' have called on us, representing themselves as the agents of would be purchasers, but they have all refused to divulge who their principals were. .We have told • them In as many words that whenever they were ready to name their principals and give us evidence of their sincerity , we|. would sit, down and talk business wltff" them. "You can state that so far as I am cencerned, and I probably would be among the first to know It, no deal for tho transfer of the road has been ef fected, and I know of no deal being un dertaken. OOULD BUY QUIETLY. "Of course, parties could deal direct with the stockholders and quietly buy their holdings without necessarily letting the officials of the road know anything about the transaction. This Is frequently dene so as not to disturb the management of a concern, but I don't believe it has been done in the case* of the California and Northwestern road." President Foster, who with his financial associates controls the California and Northwestern, which has a lease of the Saro Francisco and North Pacific Coast road, also denies that he has sold or is about to r»U his roads, but it is known that he would sell if he could get his price. The Southern Pacific; officials do not take kindly to the - suggestion that the Santa Fe Is planning to parallel their road in the northern territoryt and in discussing the matter yesterday one of the prominent traffic officials of the Southern Pacific Company said that the venture would never pay, Inasmuch as the Southern Paciflo Company has failed to realize satisfactory profits- from the traffic in ' its northern route, and that there 'was less chance for the Santa Fc realizing as much on its proposed coast route, where development Is slow and the country but thinly populate*. A report . has gained circulation that President Harriman of the Southern Pa cific Company has thwarted the plans of the Santa Fe to get control of the Cali fornia and Northwestern, but how the story does not explain. As stated before, Mr. Foster controls tho bulk of the stock of the coast road, and he emphatically denies that he has entered into arrangements with any one. From any logical standpoint, however, tlie Santa Fe is regarded as the most likely new owner of the California and North western if a deal is really to be made. - . ¦,:..¦-..¦"*¦.• , » THE SAN FBAIs CISCO CALL, SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1903. GILDED YOUTHS IN A FIERCE MIDNIGHT BRAWL IN THE DUNLAP LODGING-HOUSE CHARLES FREEMAN, WELL. CONNECTED IN OAKLAND, WHO HAD HIS RIGHT LEG AND. HIS NOSE BROKEN DURING A FIERCE AL TERCATION IN A DOWNTOWN RESORT. A FREE-FOR-ALL fight which re sulted disastrously and which be _ came an occasion for several men >> of prominence to resort to the use of fictitious names occurred early yesterday morning In the Dunlap, at 24C O'Farrell street. When the police cleared the scene of action Charles Freeman, a well-known resident of Oakland, and brother of the District Attorney of Ama dor County, went to the hospital under the name of Fred Hodges of Butte, Mont., and was treated for a broken leg and nose." A. Wilson of Bakersfleld, formerly a deputy Sheriff In one of the southern counties of the State, accompanied Free man in the ambulance and before several deep gashes on his head, produced by the butt end of a revolver, were sewed up, signed the name of Neal Williams to the register. Fred Parker of Fresno was badly injured by being kicked downstairs, but was taken to his hotel. Alden Belknap, son of Chief Justice Belknap of Nevada, rode to the City Prison in the patrol wagon and was charged with battery and disturbing the peace. He gave the name of A. Dunlap. Charles E. Harding of Bakersfleld, son of Judge Thomas Harding, deceased, one of the largest property owners and member of tho City Board of Trustees at the time of his death, a few months ago, went in the same wagon and was booked for dis turbing the peace and carrying concealed weapons. Two days ago Harding, who was given $20,000 by his father's will, cre ated a sensation by disposing of his entire interest for JSOOO to H. A. Jastro, County Supervisor and Superintendent of the Kern County Land Company, 'and Thurs day afternoon left Bakersfleld for Reno, Nev., via this city, with $1000 In cash and a $7000 letter of credit. • . . The officers also arrested D. F. Clancey, brother of Will Clancey, the jockey, for disturbing tho peace and battery, and A. Campbell, a racehorse man, for disturbing the peace and mayhem. Charles Lake, a well-to-do rancher of Reno, Nevada, was in the belligerent party, but made his escape -before hostilities- commenced. FBEEMAN IN HOSPITAL. Harding was released on $1150cash ball, Clancey on $300 cash bail, Campbell/ on $1100 cash ball and Belknap on $500 bonds.

"Wilson was saved. from further injury by one of the women, who opened her door and pulled him' Inside her room. Parker scrambled about to seek shelter, but blows rained on his head and despite all effort- to defend himself he was badly beaten.

J. J. Clecak, proprietor of a restaurant at 523 Commercial street, learned that two men had been overheard plotting to hold him up at the point of a revolver when he. reached the restaurant, at his usual hour, between -5 and 6 o'clock in the morning. He always carried with him considerable money, which was evidently known to the two men. Clecak notified the police, and Detec tives O'Dea, Ryan and Mulcahy went to the • restaurant at 4 o'clock yesterday morning and awaited developments. About 6 o'clock they saw a young man look Into the window of the restaurant and walk back into a doorway. The young man went through the same performance sev eral times, and as Clecak was over an hour late and day was breaking the young man walked away, followed by the detec tives. He entered a lodging-house on Leidesdorff street, and when he reached his room and saw the officers he threw a revolver under the bed. It was found to be loaded. . . * He gave the name of Frank Dreyfus, and said he had been a* waiter in Oak land lor the last three years. Whenques tioned he at first admitted that he had intended to hold up Clecak, but later de nied It. He will be shown to the differ ent watches and booked on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Lennon Jr. Receives Blow Which Ibjures His Brain. John A. Lennon Jr., the 16-year-old son of John A. Lennon, a wholesale grocer at 313 Clay 6treet, Is at the Harbor 90s pltaf suffering from concussion of the brain, the result of a fall received on Thursday afternoon in a scuffle with Charles May, a youngster employed by I»ennon senior as a porter. Toung Len non Is thought to be fatally Injured. The accident occurred at 315 Clay street during the absence of Lennon senior. Young Lennon is well grown for his years and when visiting at his father's store was in the habit of engaging in friendly boxing and wrestling bouts with May, who is about his own age. The encounter on Thursday seems to have been somewhat livelier than usual and finished when Ma^y landed his em ployer's son a stiff punch in the stomach. What followed the blow is not quite clear. May declares that Lennon did not fall down and did not strike his head against anything. The doctors, however, ?ay that the boy not only struck his head, but bumped it with considerable violence. There was no 111 feeling between the boys, but it la thought that May in his fear at Re unexpected outcome of the scuffle is not telling all he knows. "After I hit Lennon," said May yester day, "he straightened up as if in pain. I helped him into the office, and when he commenced vomiting we sent for the ambulance." Lennon was taken to ths Harbor Hos pital, where Dr. Weger found the boy to be suffering: from concussion of the brain. By Dr. Weger*s orders knowledge of the serious nature of the boy'a injury was withheld from the press. Lennon Is still unconscious. A trained nurse Is In charge of the case, and the boy's parents and Bister keep constant vigil by the cotside. TRAINMEN ADJOUHN * XJNTm MONDAY NEXT An Advance in Their Wages Means to the Railroad Half a Million Dollars. After a long session yesterday the of ficials of the Southern Pacific Company and the trainmen's committees adjourned their conference over the latter's de mands for higher wages, to Monday morning. The action was taken in order to permit Manager Agler and the division superintendents to turn their attention to business matters of the road, which had been neglected during the past few days. In the forenoon of yesterday the super intendents met with Manager Agler to discuss the details of the demands of the trainmen Insofar as they had been considered the previous day and in the afternoon representatives of both sides resumed their conference. The matter of an advance is being taken up in a Systematic ¦ wa J r « each-di vision being considered separately and especially as to what an increase will mean -to the company as an additional- ex pense. It* was stated yesterday that if a 15 and 12 per cent advance is granted to the freight and passenger trainmen Respectively, as has been the« case on other roads, it will Increase th*e operating expenses over the entire Southern Paciflo systems about $500,000. • The present conference, of course, only bears upon the men employed on the western system of the road, but a similar conference Is now on In New Orleans to determine the same questions.
