Delmas represented Jensen throughout the two former trials, while the interests of the railway were looked out for bv the late. \V. H. L.. Barnes. Dunne has now taken Barnes" place. Del mas had nbt proceeded far in hi? address when he had occasion to refer to the evi dence given at the former trials, and in stating the distance the train was away from Jensen- when ne was first seen he was contradicted by Dunne, who asserted that he was misstating the testimony. Delmas scorned the first few sallies of Dunne, but toward the end of the argu ment he turned and objected to the ac tion of opposing counsel "in attempting to tell him about a case he had been fa miliar with for years." The Judge called for order and announc ing that he would read the testimony for himself, and that he wouH consider the arguments at an end. he adjourned court. Robert. Jensen was Injured by a train in Alameda in 1894? He and his wife had had a uuarrel and he boarded a train under the pretense that he waa going to San Francisco. He did not remain on the train, but got off on the side farthest from the station and waa struck by a train coming from the mole. He brought suit against the railroad company for $15,000 damage? and was given a verdict be a jury for $10,000. The railway ob tained a new trial and the next jury gave Jensen nothing. Jensen is now making a motion for another trial of the case. The. old Jensen case against the South ern Pacific Company was revived to-day and a heated argument took place, be tween Attorneys D. M. Delmas and Peter F. Dunne of San Francisco over a motion for a new trial before Judge Hall. Delmas resented what he termed the impertinence of Dunne in' trying to tell him about a case in which he had been interested for years. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, June 12.

Of late years his health has not bepn rugged and he has, from time to time, been forced to re linquish his pastoral duties. During t&ese enforced absences from his charge the affairs of St. Joseph's parish have been directed by Rev. ,T. J. O'Connell, as sistant to Father Foley. On the testi monial committee which secured and ar ranged the presentation to Father Foley to-night were the following active work ers: It was a trying moment for P'ather Foley and it was with the utmost diffi culty that he controlled the feelings that welled from his heart and nought expres sion beyond the power of words. Impres sively he voiced his gratitude toward every member of his flock— not for the money, he said, but for the loyal spirit of love for and faith in him, which, he felt, prompted the action and which he valued more highly than any coin of earth. of St. Joseph's Church, in Lafay ette Hall to-night. So quietly and quickly had the testimonial been created by the members of his flock that the well beloved priest knew nothing of the purse move ment, which was Inaugurated cue week ago. When he reached here to-night in response to an urgent telephone message sent him in the Santa. Clara Valley, where he was sojourning because of illness, he was surprised to find nearly three hun dred of his parishioners awaiting him in Lafayette Hall.

Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 111S Broadway, June 12. The fiendish tormentors of little Mary Silva of Orinda Park are supposed to be in San Francisco and Sheriff Veal© of Contra Costa County has about given up hope of bringing them to justice. The most authentic .news of the brutes was unearthed to-day in Point Richmond, where a Santa Fe Railroad man told the officers that two men tallying exactly with the description of the criminals had taken the ferry for San Francisco on the night the crime "was committed. This rail road man said that two men" met him about 9:30 o'clock and | asked when the next boat went to San Francisco. He told them 10:43 o'clock, and at that hour he saw thrm go aboard the ferry. Sheriff Veale spent all day following up clews, as he has done ever since getting word of the attack on Mary Silva, but with out any positive results. The clew he fol lowed to Temescal last night proved to be a false scent and no arrests were made, as the suspects were able to prove an alibi.

The Chief goes on the theory that Walkirez has probably a com paratively short time to live and that he must be given proper treatment while he is in police charge. George Flood, the colored machinist, who lived at the Leroy house, has hied claim of ownership to most of the per sonal effects therein contained. Public Ad ministrator Gray had no desire to combat the claim, but has told. Flood to make proof in court. The property consists mainly of household furnishings, which Flood says he purchased from time to time, but allowed Mrs. Leroy, his foster mother, to use. Flood bears an excellent reputation among both colored and white people who know him. ' • . The result is that the murderer's break fast consisted of a large beefsteak, half a dozen fried eggs, potatoes In quantity and a large measure of black coffee- After he had indulged his fancy in that substantial meal the prisonersettled.back on his cot and smoked cigarettes inces santly for an hour. . He appeared to be the picture of contentment. His recuperation so quickly after the experiences of the night gave rise to sus picions that the epileptic attacks were not so genuine as they appeared to the watchers at the cell. Health Officer von Adelung, who was called to attend Wal kirez at 2 o'clock this morning, declared his opinion that the patient was sham ming. On top of that comes the report to the police that Dr. J. J. Medros, medical ex aminer for the United States pension bu reau, certified in Walkirez's application for a pension that the discharged soldier was subject to epilepsy. « Either Victor Walkirez, the slayer of aged Elizabeth Leroy. is feigning or he possesses a remarkable physical "composi tion. For twelve hours last night he ap parently suffered intermittent, attacks of epilepsy, during which he was in (most violent paroxysms, throwing three or four stalwart policemen about his cell as if they were children. His violent actions continued until 6 o'clock this morning, • when Walkirez dropped off to sleep, awaking about 11 o'clock, quiet and easy and with a raven ous appetite. He was ready for the first time» since his arrest to eat heartily, and Chief of Police Hodgklns ordered the jail ers to give Walkirez all that he desired- Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, June 12.
