Berrie was patrolling: his beat along Van
Ness avenue when some one threw a fire cracker in front of the horse. The animal took fright and ran. Berrie lost his bal ance and was thrown. Then the frightened horse began to jump around, and, as the officer still held ; the reins, was unable to get away. Finally It made a leap into the air and broke loose, stepping on U.e officer's foot in its flight. The horse was stopped several blocKs away from the qcene of the acci dent and bystanders ; telephoned for the ambulance and had the injured policeman removed to the hospital. Mounted Policeman J. B.

Wilson ob served the thirty-fifth anniversary of his entry into the ministry by addressing his congregation at Trinity Methodist Episco pal Church last night, his subject being "Then and Now." Dr. Wilson said that those who think the world Is getting worse have studied and compared past times with the pres ent to very little purpose. In 1803, the doctor said, there was in this country but one church member to every fifteen of the inhabitants, while in 1903 there was one in every five. Thirty five years , ago, he said, the Methodist church numbered but 1,250,000. It had to day over 6,000,000 communicants and 24, 000,000 adherents. Dr. Wilson said that the property of the Methodist church was worth 5187,000,000. Thirty- five years ago, he said, it gave less than $1,000,000 a year to. all benevolent purposes and at this time it gives more than $3,000, 000 annually. Rev. J. A. B.

She died from shock caused by the burns. She came from Stockton about a month ago and was 26 years of age. Death Ends Her Suffering. Two horses and a cow and several vehi cles were taken from the burning barn, but some machinery and several thou sand feet of cedar lumber and some doors, window Fashes and other building mate rial, which were in the loft, were con sumed with the barn. On Saturday* night the grass on the lot was set aflre several times by fireworks, but on each occasion it was put out by Reuben and his brother Herbert. The damage is estimated at 11000. The flre department succeeded in con fining the fire to the place of its origin and prevented its spreading to the stacks of timber on the lot. A fire which threatened the residence, horses and a cow belonging to F. W. Kern, builder and contractor, 2449 Seven teenth street, destroyed a barn in the rear of Mr. Kern's house, corner of Seven teenth street and Potrero avenue, at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Kern was away with some members of his family, the only one remaining at home being a young son, Reuben. The lad was playing with another boy near the barn and was surprised to see flames shoot from the roof. He sent in an alarm, and before the engines arrived the flames looked so threatening that a second alarm was sent in. Barn Belonging to F. W. Kara Is Burned and Builder's Material Is Consumed. FIRE THREAENS ANTMALS AND CONTRACTOR'S HOME Only a Matter of Numbering. "No, we haven't made any arrests yet." the great detective told tho reporter. "You can say this much, however: We know who the murderer is. "He is one of four men whom we have been watching from the first. The fact that only ono man committed the crime has been sworn to by witnesses. "Neither the first nor second of these four men was present when the shot was fired. The third man was also away at the time. "The fourth man is the one we want, and we can lay our hands on him when ever we're good and ready." "Then what are you waiting for?" asked the reporter. "Why don't you arrest him now?" "Well, said the great detective, "you see we're not yet sure as to the proper numbering of these men. We know that the fourth man is the one we want, but which of these four is the fourth man? That's what we're working on now."— New York Sun. DENVER, July 5.— Christian Endeavor hosts have already begun to assemble in this citv and from now on . until next Thursday, when the international biennial convention Is to open, large delegations from all parts of the country will arrive daily. Nearly 2000 Denver people have been working for weeks to insure the suc cess of the coming convention, and plans have been made to care for 25,000 visitors, though, hardly a.o many are expected to come. Fifteen acres of ground near the City Park have been set aside as a con vention cajnp. The general meetings -will be held in a large tent, christened Tent Endeavor, which will give seating room for 10.000 people. The big tent is surround ed by smaller tents and the entire grounds will be brilliantly lighted with electricity. Seventeen churches In the city will be thrown open to the Endeavorers as the State headquarters during the convention. The opening session will be held Thurs day afternoon following a meeting of the trustees, at which officers for the ensuing two years will be elected. There Is no doubt that Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark, who organized the first United Society of Christian Endeavor at Portland," Me., on February 22, 1881, will be re-elected presi dent and William Shaw treasurer. The present secretary is Van Ogden Vogt. who was chosen by the trustees only a few months ago to succeed John Willis Baer. President Clark will formally open the convention and addresses of welcome will be delivered by Governor James H. Pea body for the State, Rev. Robert F. Coyle for -the churches and William E. Sweet, chairman for the committee of 1903. The song service will be under the direction of Professor W. J. Whlteman. On Thurs day evening President Clark will read his annual addrcsa after which a platform reception will be held by the officers, trus tees and State presidents. The four days following will be crowded with religious services, missionary rallies and addresses on topics of interest to members of the society by prominent clergymen and other Christian workers from all parts of the country. The official programme gives an honored place to Chuco Ogawa of Japan, who will officially represent the Endeavorers of that kingdom. There was a steady in crease In Christian Endeavor membership this year, and there are now more than 62,000 societies, some of which are in In dia, China, Japan and other remote coun tries.

Dynamiters Make Bold Attempt to Blow Up Building. COLORADO SPRINGS. Colo., July 5.- An attempt was made to blow up the plant of the Colorado Springs Electric Company at 2 o'clock this morning by dynamite. One hundred and fifty sticks of dynamite. weighing seventy-five pounds, were piled alongside the north end of the big building and a fuse lighted. The explosion of one stick distributed the other sticks around a radius of 200 feet, saving the building and the lives of seven teen employes. The glass In all the north ern windows was broken and fires started, but they were quickly put out. It is con sidered miraculous that the entire load did not explode, as there .was enough dynamite to have laid the plant in ruins. General Manager George B. Tripp has offered $3000 reward for the man or men who made the attempt. There is no clew, and he states there is no trouble between the company and its employes.

TRY TO WRECK A POWER PLANT Monte Rio Is a new summer resort on the North Shore and is about eight mile* south of Cazadero. Many pretty homes have been built there and at Tyrone and the adjacent country holds some valuable farming properties. It was reported to night that a large quantity of timber has been destroyed. The officials of the North Shore Rail road early this evening sent every avail able man to the scene, and at midnight a special train with 130 men aboard was hurried to Monte Rio to aid the force of flre fighters already on the ground. SANTA ROSA, July 5.- A forest flre a mile wide at midnight to-night is coming over the hills toward Monte Rio and Ty rone and the residents of those localities and of the surrounding country are great ly alarmed for the safety of crops and homes. Valuable Timber Is Already De stroyed and a Special Train Crowded With Men is Hur ried to the Scene. > The machinery and buildings were cov ered by insurance to the amount of $650, 000 and the stock was insured for about $600,000. The insurance on the buildings and machinery will cover the full amount of the loss on this part of the plant. • From the hoghouse the flre spread to the smokehouse, making a fiery furnace 400 feet long and 520 feet wide. The walls began to fall about 5 o'clock, but before that the eastern wooden wall had been gradually dropping away. The center of interest was directed to the northeast cor ner of the building, where nearly 100,000 pounds of oleomargarine, In tierces of 4S0 pounds each, were adding fuel to the ftre. At € o'clock a large part of the southern wall fell with a crash. Several violent explosions had been beard just be fore as oil tanks burst within the build ing-. Within a very few minutes the flames »f re in the hog department, and the car casses of 4S0Q animals were added, to the flames. It was in this building that Mil ler is said to have lost his life. The fire by 3 o'clock had penetrated to t he oleomargarine department, which was at the northeast corner of the building. The beef beds, egg department and other departments in the eastern end of the building, known as the beefhouse, were soon ablaze. The eastern part of the building was of wood, built to allow of an extension of the building in that direc • tion. The eastern wall was soon a mass of flames. It burned slowly at first, but by 3:30 o'clock at began to fall apart, especially at the north end, where the oleomargarine department was located. OIL TANKS BTJBST. Daniel Smalley, foreman of the car de partment, fell from the sheds on the north of the building and suffered serious injury. The fatalities occurred about 5 o'clock. By that time nearly all the Vullding was on flre. A man with a hose, said to have been Fire Marshal Miller, was seen at one of the windows on the north side, in the hog department. He walked back into the building, and a few seconds later those on the outside heard t urine cries, which lasted perhaps half a minute. The man did not appear again and is believed to have been killed. Two young men who were in the room and left a few minutes before said that t wo men failed to escape, but they did not give the names of the victims. The origin of the fire is a mystery. There was no lire in the casing depart ment in the eastern part of the building, where the blaze started. s, nd 1S00 sheep were burned. Nearly 100,000 pound? of oleomargarine was destroyed. The contents of the smokehouse were consumed. The entire north building, measuring 120 by 4'M feet and ranging in height from five to seven stories, was putted. It was with the greatest difficulty ihat the south building was 6aved. TWO EMPLOYES PERISH. The fire started shortly after 2 o'clock, and by 9 o'clock most of the building was tone. The greatest danger wa« at 6 «> clock, when part of the north wall fell s>nd the fierce flames shot toward the Nelson Morris building. Though the dense Fmoke was blown against the big build ing the work of the firemen saved the Firucture. Many of the firemen were vol unteers. There were three of the city < ompanies at the fire. The carcasses of 4D00 hogs. 1500 cattle For a time the entire stockyards district vas threatened. By hard work the Nel son Morris plant, 300 feet north of the Hammond plant, was saved, and this raved the Swift plant, which is north of il:e Nelson Morris building. ST.* JOSEPH, Mo., July 5.— The main A.uilding of the Hammond packing plant vas destroyed by fire this afternoon. The loss is estimated at $500,000 and is entirely covered by insurance. Two men lost their li\es la the flames. One of them is re ported to be Charles Miller, fire marshal Bt the plant.

Firemen Save the Adjoining Struc- Blaze a Mile Wide Roars Over the Hills in Sonoma County. Main Building of the Ham - - mond Plant in St. Louis Is Destroyed. An Investigation of the affair was made by Dtectives Freel and Whitaker, who found nothing to warrant any other the ory except attempted murder and suicide. The Coroner's office was notified and Deputy Coroner Charles Meehan and Mes sengers Thomas Davis and James Murphy responded to the call. The body of Kato was removed to the Morgue, where an in quest will be held. The physicians at the Emergency Hospital are of the opinion that the woman will recover. The gash was on the right side of her throat and did not sever any important blood vessel. According to S. Tatusano, a partner of the deceased, he was much worried by business reverses and had often stated that he would take his own life and when he did he would take his wife with him. Kato conducted a store at 504 Dupont street but had not been very successful. The absence- of any bloodstains in the room occupied by Kato and his wife demonstrates that he undoubtedly called her out into the narrow hallway where she would have but little chance to de fend herself. From the statements of the Japanese who reside in the house and the intimates of the couple, they never quarreled and seemed to be much devoted to each other. A peculiar feature of the affair, and one that will require explanation on the part of the woman, is the fact that clenched in the right hand of the dead man was found more than $4. How this amount happened to be in his hand at the time and how he was able to wield the razor thus burdened, unless he held the instru ment in his left hand, is inexplicable. BATTLE IN THE HALL. Doctors Ito and Yoshlda responded to the call and upon examination found that Kato was dead and his wife still alive. She was conveyed to her room and by the use of heroic remedies was saved. After dressing her wounds the physicians had her conveyed to the Central Emer gency Hospital in the ambulance. The hallway where the tragedy oc curred is at the head of a short flight of steps that lead from the street door to the second floor. There was every evi dence of a terrible struggle. The wound ed woman and dead man were found ly ing side by side. The razor with which the one life was ended and another jeop ardized was found lying by the side of Kato." FIND KATO DEAD. The tragedy was enacted at 12 Sallna Place, the dwelling place of the deceased, during the absence of the other inmates. About 11 p. m. S. Saito, who resides in a house immediately adjoining the Kato home, was startled by screams. Henry Nagate, a brother-in-law of the dead man, was also attracted to the scene and rushed to the apartments occupied by the couple. Lying on the floor in a" little hallway at the head of the stairs lay the suicide and his wife. Faint and sick at heart he turned precipitately ajid rushed downstairs to summon assistance. Despondent over business reverses and having become imbued with the Idea that a continuation of the struggle against adversity would prove futile Ma sanosuke Kato, a Japanese merchant, made an attempt to murder his wife last night by cutting her throat with a razor and then feeling assured that he had been successful in taking her life, drew the blade across his own throat and bled to death before the arrival of a surgeon.

BLANCHE PARTINGTON. • • • In the piquant phrase of the moment, Miss Mabel McKlnley, "favorite niece of the late President McKinley." and many other things, "made good," more than good, at the Orpheum last night. The event of the week's bill is Miss McKin ley's debut Into vaudeville, the pleasure of which was reserved for San Francisco. Back of It is an unwilling papa, Abner McKinley, who has a $30,000 distaste for seeing his daughter behind the footlights —at least the story goes that the young lady refused so much rather than give up her cherished ambition, \ There is al^o a husband. He Is Dr. Baer, a physician of prominence, and equally opposed to Mrs. Baer*s appearance in vaudeville. Then there is a picturesque small affair of a $1250 a week salary that also adds inter est. Then Paris has taught her and Melba praised. But not these things, nor the honored name she bears, nor yet her tiny, piteous crutches— that seem indeed but the odd whim of a pretty woman are responsible for Miss McKinley's suc cess of yesterday afternoon and evening. There was, indeed, a warm friendliness in her greeting, in which her name count ed much. There was a shock of sympa thy for the plucky young woman who walked in, pink, pretty and smiling, on crutches. But it was for the singer, for the engaging personality, that the cheers went up after her performance. Miss Mc- Kinley has a full, round soprano, culti vated and flexible. She uses it very clev erly, and with an engaging vaudeville ac cent that is very extraordinary consider ing her limited acquaintance with the footlights. Her first number waa the arditl "II Bacio," Its florid passages han dled with ease and grace. In another genre was the second song, the familiar "My Rosary," that was Bung very tastefully. The third number intro duced Miss McKinley as a composer, and set the audience softly stamping to its catchy measures. "Anona" is Its title, and it is all about an Indian maid of Arizona. The audience encored It lustily, the singer repeating one of the verses and afterward giving "Annie Laurie" to her own accompaniment. She was sympa thetically accompanied by Oscar Luck stone in the other numbers. READY TO GREET CHURCH WORKERS SAN DIEGO, July 5.— Three thousand people to-day witnessed what was • the nearest to a genuine bullfight that this section of the country has ever seen. There had been much advertising of the exhibition and the trains on the National City and Otay Railroad were crowded. The bull pen, or plaza del toro. Is built in the level country to the south of ,Tia Juana^ proper. The ring is a little more than 100 feet across and the Beats are ar ranged in eight tiers. There were four toreadors and picadors from the City of Mexico, who have come to the peninsula to give exhibitions of the ( kind given to-day. Three of them were in jured in the contest and one of the in jured, Manuel Rodriguez, a toreador, came within about a quarter of an nich of having his life shut off in the ring. There were seven bulls brought into the ring, two of which refused to take part in the game. The others were ready to fight the minute they were in the ring, and if a decision was to be rendered it would have to be in favor of the bulls. Rodriguez was hooked in the side of the neck and seven stitches had to be taken to close up the wound, which missed the jugular by only a fraction of an inch. Francisco Cazares was hooked in the thigh, but escaped with a scratch, though he lost a portion of- his pink silk tights. Antonio Gonzales was thrown "down and injured in the hip and would have been gored if the others had not come to his assistance. The bull ring is built to re main and exhibitions of the kind will be given once a month. Special Dispatch to The Call. Although the carnival spirit has held full sway on the fiesta grounds for eleven days the police had but little to do there in. There were very few instances where the services of an officer were required, and these were only for minor offenses. One of the most enterprising and suc cessful booths at the carnival is the country store, conducted by the Gentle men's Charitable' Association of Alameda. !i ais booth took In $2300, half of which will be divided among five Alameda charities after the expenses are deducted. An ex press wagon load of flour, meal and other foodstuffs that remained unsold was do nated to the California Girls' Training Home in Alameda and hauled there to day. Amonsr the workers at the country store who were on duty for eleven days were President Arthur B. Tarpey, A. P. Smiley, Bert L. Fisher, John F. Hanson, Charles L. Metzger, Ludwig Warnke, Frank W. Hally, Judge Fred S. Cone, William B. Hlnchman, James Shanly, William Hammond Jr. and Charles H. Smith. Director General Schlueter, President F. P. McFeely and Secretary D. A. Sin clair of the Carnival Association worked incessantly and the fact that the btg un dertaking resulted In a gratifying success !a in a great measure due to the energy anil efficiency of these officials. Outside of these gentlemen, two others who were always promoting and creating interest in the carnival were Daniel J. Hallahan and Andy Johnstone. CHARATIES ABE BENEFITED. Twenty-five thousand people have vis ited the fiesta grounds since the open ing night and have enjoyed them selves in true Mardi Gras style. Com pared with the carnival and street fair held last year, which r: but seven days, the attendance this year fell 7000 behind. Last night saw the larce?>t crowd of the week in the pleasure part, the turnstiles registering 23,000 paid admissions. The proceeds of last vear's carnival netted $15,000. The profits of tl.e fair Just termi nated have not yet been computed for an nouncement. Director General Max Schlueter and his staff of assistants were busy to-day winding up the affairs of the carnival, but the benefit to the fire men will carry their labors over a few days yet. "We have not yet completed work on our financial statement." said Mr. Schlueter this evening, "and therefore cannot say at this time how the receipts of this year's carnival compare with those of the one held last year. We ran seven days last year and had 132.000 paid ad missions. This year we ran the fair eleven days and the paid admissions numbered 125,000. We are satisfied, however, with the outcome. FIGTJBES OF THE FAIR. Director General Schlueter of the car nival communicated with a number of those interested with the result that man ager J. A. Britton of the Oakland Gas, Light and Heat Company agreed to fur nish the lights without cost. J. L. Calla han will furnish the services of his band without expense. A number of the best concessions are still In town and can be prevailed upon to remain for two nights more, the proceeds to go to the fund. All of the booths are still intact and even if some of the exhibits have been removed the decorations are still there, and little will be missed. Mayor Olney was communicated with to-nicht and gave his consent to keep the streets closed for two days longer. Members of Oakland Lodge of Elks and members of the fire department have al ready volunteered their services as spell ers and ticket men. so that there will be no cost in this direction. It is expected that there will be a good sum realized from the two nights' show. The fair will not be kept open afternoons. The Oakland Street Fair will be kept open for two nights more, the entire pro ceeds to go to the fund for the relief of the families of Fireman Frank Parker, who was killed, and extramen A. A. Sicotte and D. J. Barr, who were injured during the burning of the Arcata lodging house. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, July 5.
