A^eed. a tenant of Thome's, explained at the time the old man de parted that he had seen his landlord packing a traveling bag; that Thorne had drawn money from the bank, and had intimated he intended to go East to find Mrs. Crocker. The message from the ab sentee verifies Reed's statement in every particular. It also substantiates the po lice theory. Thorne, in addition to unfolding the se cret of his latest venture within range of Cupid's darts wrote that he was en- Joying the best of health. Charles V. S. Thorne, an eccentric oc togenarian, who left his home at 1106 East Twenty-fourth street on October 5 with out announcing his departure, has bob bed up in Des Moines, Iowa, as the hus band of Mrs. Frances E. Crocker that was. In a brief message to Attorney Gil bert Wyman, -who had charge of the old man's affairs, Thorne tells the story of his matrimonial move, the fifth in a life that has passed the eightieth milestone. As soon as Wyman received word from his aged client the po+ice were notified. It had been reported two weeks ago that Thorne had mysteriously disappeared. The detectives, after investigation, de clared that from numerous letters the,y had found in Thome's residence they were satisfied he had gone East on a marrying expedition. Correspondence with Mrs. Crocker was brought to light, and ample evidence was disclosed to show that the peculiar East Oaklander had set out to win another bride.

If New York or Chicago bad a chance to ties, but to-day that work was dedicated to the use of the public, and the. only wagon road tunnel in the Sta^p was declared finished and a success. There were special exercises for this event, and the. people of Contra Costa County and the people of Alameda Coun ty, who have been more closely united by this event, assembled to congratulate one another. Supervisors, Mayors, public of ficials and private! citizens met, first at the tunnel at the summit of the ridge and later in Oakland, and finally at the ban quet table. The rain of the night before and the threatening sky did not dampen the ardor of those who had laborer! so long and so earnestly for this result. The affair was in charge of the tunnel com mittee of the Merchants' Exchange and the Boards of Supervisors of the two counties. < The exercises were, attended by a large party of guests from Alameda County, who were first taken on a tour of inspec tion to the tunnel, where a basket lunch was served, after which the party re paired to Idora Park, where the formal dedicatory exercises were held. The Alameda County delegation left the headquarters of the Merchants* Exchange at 9:30 o'clock this morning, many of the guests arriving late, as they thought that the dedication would be postponed on ac count of the threatening weather. It was necessary to notify a number by tele phone that the programme would be car ried out rain or shine, and this delayed the start nearly half an hour. The party occupied three large buses, and on the way to the tunnel Supervisor H. D. Rowe pointed out the difficulties which were overcome in building the new road and called, attention to the great amount of work which had been accom plished In the last three months. INSPECTION MADE. On arriving at the tunnel the-ijarty was given time to Inspect the work of the en gineers, after which refreshments were served. During the lunch, which was spread In picnic fashion. Secretary Wil bur Walker of the Merchants' Exchange proposed the following tc-ast: "The Inter county tunnel— may it be the forerunner of many similar children of prosperity." George H. Smith then called for three cheers for the tunnel committee and the Boards of Supervisors of both counties, and the cheers were glven^wlth a will. The members of the party who visited the tunnel this morning were: Supervisor H. D. Rowe, J. F. W. Sohst, Wil ber Walker. W. F. Burbank, H. C. Capw.l!, D. C. Brown, W. B. Standeford, O.

Sohst, chairman of the tunnel committee, opened the literary pro gramme with a short history of the work done by the Merchants'. Exchange In be half of the tunnel.. He said In part: The barrier which has kept Alameda and Contra Costa counties apart for more than half a century and hindered our development has been removed by the Inter-county tunnel, and the present generation and those to come after us will, enjoy the fruit which p iblic spirited citizens have prepared for them.

For almost a quarter of a century the road lay on the hillside uncompleted and the Contra Costa County residents con tinued to use the old roads and meet with disaster and injury until the Mer chants' Exchange of Oakland took the matter in hand. They found It neces sary to secure the passage of a special law that would permit counties to build inter-county tunnels. This was done and then it was found that more of the tun nel was in Contra Costa County than in Alameda. The exchange then undertook to raise by private subscription enough money in Oakland to make the cost of the same to the little county across tho hills as to the larger county to the. east. This was done and nearly $12,000 raised, of which $10,000 was paid to the Contra Costa Supervisors and the balance ex pended upon the Alameda County side of the hill. The subscriptions to this fund were: acquire & scenic road like the one Ratilng up to the tunnel each would pay a million dollars or more for it. How does It come to our city? No public meetings. No petition to the City Council. No bond election. Nj issuing of bonds. "Without spendinn one cent, this mag nificent improvement is dropped into Oakland's lap Mr. Sohst, as chairman of the tunnel committee, then formally turned the tun nel over to President Theodore Gier of the Merchants' Exchange, who accepted It in the name of the exchange and then presented the completed work to the Su pervisors of Contra Costa and Alameda counties. The address of the day was delivered by Senator E. K. Taylor of Alameda, who pointed out the beneilt the tunnel would be to the two counties. Short speeches were mpde by Supervisors Mitchell and Rowe of Alameda County and Chairman Wightman of the Cqntra Costa County Board of Supervisors. The history of the inter-county tunnel Is an interesting one, extending back to the early '70s. In those days the popu lous part of Contra Costa County was in the agricultural valleys in the Interior. It was the desire of the farmers of that section to reach tide water at Oakland, ami several roads were built across the hills. But these roads were run upon lines that Involved the greatest economy of construction and grades were not care fully considered. But stages were run from Oakland to various parts of the neighboring county and travel and traffic came from the Alameda County side of the hills. Then it was that the late L. W. Kenne dy conceived the idea of building a toll road across these hills with a tunnel that would permit of easy grade upon each side. He organized a private company for the purpose and the road was built to the mouth of the proposed tunnel. Work was begun upon the hole in the hill, but a rush of water was struck to the extent that it collapsed the tunnel and the com pany at the same time. OLD ROAD USED.

The Board of Education for the second time within two weeks has been' called upon to investigate charges against mem bers of the teaching staff in the public schools of this city. The charges involve alleged undue violence in the handling of pupils. The second case that has been formally called to the department director's at tention is that of I. D. Martin, principal of the Grant School. Complaint made by C. E. HitchcocK, a deputy sheriff of Pied mont district, that Principal Martin used unnecessary force on Hitchcock's son, 13 years of ace, is the subject of the in vestigation. The charges, which were referred to the Rules and Regulations Committee of the board, have been set for' hearing on Friday evening, a special meeting of the committee having been called. Those that will hear the evidence are Directors Knox, Robertson and Isaacs. Superintendent Mc- Clymonds and President George T. Ran dolph. The rule of the Board of Education touching corporal punishment is as fol lows: Corporal punishment shall be resorted to only in extreme cases, when other moans fall to secure obedience.

Replying to your favor, will say that tho conversatiun I ha.ve had with several member* of the Board of Trustees inclines me to be lieve that the bonds to establish and equip manual training laboratories, etc?., will meet with favor, and I chall do what I can to have it Included in the proposed bond issue. Berkeley Office San Francisco Call, 2143 Center Street, Nov. 4. Now it is the Town and Gown Club that is backing the effort to have inserted in the proposed bond issue an Item calling for the expenditure of $15,000 for the in stallation of a manual training and do mestic industries department in the gram mar schools of Berkeley. That exclusiva women's club has unanimously adopted a resolution requesting the Board of Trus tees to provide In the bonding scheme tha means for the establishment and equip ment of the necessary laboratories.

Miss Lallie B.

Defendant Says the Charge Against Him Is a Trivial One. CUPID'S URGING FORCES JOURNEY Nelson was to have appeared in court on the first Monday of October. Instead h<» says that he came to the Pacific Coast in quest of a man who owed him money. He will not give the man's name nor the amount, and the police are disinclined to believe the story, as it does not seem pos sible that Nelson would be willing to for te5t $5000 which had been put up by his friends had he not some reason for wish ing to escape justice. Nelson says that his wife and child are residing at the present time at jO7 Eleventh street, Oak land. An investigation last night dis closed the fact that th^re is no such num ber In either Kast or West Oakland. FICTITIOUS ADDRESS. In explanation of the arrest Nelson says that some time ago his brother, John O. Nelson, was arrested and convicted on a charge of murder in the 6econd degree. While the case was on appeal the defend ant, who was out on bonds, went to Okla homa and was prevented from appearing flt the next session of the court by the Kansas floods. Nelson, who is in jail here, claims that he had incurred the displeas ure of Circuit Judge Thomas Flannelly by criticising him severely In his petition for an appeal, and that the Judge had a war. rant sworn out for his arrest on a charge of having obstructed justice by secreting a prisoner. He was released on $j000 bonds, and says that he soon afterward went to St. Louis to promote an oil Fcheme. Nelson cays he was an attorney in Cof feevllle, Kan. He has many letters from prominent persons, but most of them are in relation to the advancement of some enterprise. He is a glib talker and does not belie the circular in that respect. Since leaving Kansas he has grown a mustache and chin whiskers. It was clever work on the part of the detective in recognizing him, for Tils appearance has changed considerably. He boasts of his family connections and of high social relation* in the plae« from which he comes. XELSON'S EXPLANATION. Nelson pave t>on<Js hrr© in the rum of $0000 for his appearance at the District Criminal Court of Montgomery Countr, Kejis. He fail ed to appear and his bond has been forfeited and a t*n<*h warrant issued. Nelson Us a good talker, and always has tome scheme on loot. He will talk law. horse or any old thing, and is fairly well jx>sted on the sreneral topics of the day. He /ias a wife and & little girl with h!m. At th» request of the Sheriff of Mont gomery County, Kansas, David R. Nel son, who claims to be an attorney, was arrested yesterday afternoon and is now held at the City Prison. The arrest was made by Detective Tim BaHey at Clay and Drumm streets. Bailey recognized Nelson from a circular received by the local police department. The specific charge for which the prisoner la wanted is not known, owing to the fact that Captain of Detectives Martin has been unable to receive additional details, but It is supposed to be a grave one. The circular on which the arrest was made contains the following: With nearly an Inch of rain as the rec ord for ¦ the opening of the first storm of the winter, residents of the Frultvale district within the city limits have increased their clamor for protec tion against the storm water drained upon the streets from the outside hill slopes. A condition, peculiar to the double-headed government, city and county, that Oak land bends under, is met in the efforts of City Engineer P. C. Turner, backed by the City Council and the administration, to afford the desired relief. All of the storm water that runs in tor rents into the low places, stretching east ward from Nineteenth avenue, through the Twenty-third-avenue business district and on toward Fruitvale, is from rainfall on the sloping watershed that Is entirely outside of municipal jurisdiction and en tirely within, the County Board of Su pervisors' political domain. Appeal has been made to the board for the relief by appropriation for construc tion of a storm water drainage system, tho county to contribute the greater por tion of the money. But that appeal has been met first by a construction of the law blocking the work, then an attempt to induce each Supervisor to make an ap propriation from road district funds to cover the needed amount. Down to date the movement has lagged. There has not been the spontaneous response that the East Oaklanders would desire to be made by the Supervisors. The section most seriously affected Is along East Fourteenth street, a connec tion for the main traveled San Leandro road into Oakland. Because City En gineer Turner has been active in trying to remedy conditions he has been the target for criticism from county officials, who asserted that he was not warranted in so-called Interference. Sentiment has been strongly aroused In East Oakland concerning the apparent delay in reach ing a settlement of the financial difficulty. So far as the city of Oakland Is con cerned it is estimated that the taxpay ers contribute 70 per cent to the county roads funds, of which not one dollar is expended within the city limits. This is the result of liberal transfers by the Board of Supervisors from the general fund of the county to the various district road funds. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, Nov. 4. TOWN AND GOWN APPROVES BONDS PHOENIX. Ariz., Nov. 4.— President B. P. Kipley, Second Vice President Paul Morton, Third Vice President J. W. Kon drick and other officials of the Santa F« system arrived here early this, morning, spent a few hours in Phoenix and- Mesa City and continued their journey to Pres cott and other northern points. The visit is mainly for the purpose of Inspecting the Santa Fe lines and connections In tha Southwest. Judging from, the personnel of the* gentlemen with whom the officials were in conference it is supposed one mat ter under consideration was the feasibil ity of the construction of a branch of the Santa Fe system from Mesa City to Gold fleld, twenty miles long, cutting off that much in the wagon haul necessary in tak ing freight to the sito uf the Tonto stor age dam, soon to be constructed. The visit also give3 rise to further speculation respecting the plans of the Santa Fa to construct Its main line from a point in New Mexico through the Gila and Salt River valleys to Phoenix, thence north west to the Colorado River south of Tha Needlea. Should this be done, as is gen erally believed it would be within the next two or three years, the road wtlukl avoid the heavy grades on tho present line running through Northern Arizona. That mental treatment of disease Is preva lent as a fact is shown by the prominence of the mind curlst, the Christian Scientist ana the like. It is also more or less prominent in osteopathy. Tha reasons for the spread of this is largely due to the growing recogni tion of the importance of suggestion as <t means of influencing the physical conduct of the body and also to the fact that regular practitioners, who have heretofore been rather conservative in adopting mental suggestion as a treatment, are now coming into the fold. Hypnotlsnj is getting more and more prevalent as a means of treatment and Is being recog nized by scientific men everywhere. Proba bly some day, not very far away, mental sug gestion and psychology will be part of the regular equipment of all medical men. So much for the practical work. On the con-practical side, the advantage will be in favor of increased opportunities for research. The abnormal cases that a. regular physician often finds will add to the science of psychol ogy. It *-will finally tend to offset a certain narrowness of view, as if the body were the whole man. In this way the physicians' own estimate of human nature will be altered, his powers of sympathy enlarged and his whole work given greater value. Dr. Stratton also said that psychology had recently developed more on the ex perimental side than ever before and that the researches were of inestimable value to the practice of medicine. For the gen eral background for medical study he ad vocated the study of biology, which, he said, is coming into closer contact with psychology all the time. $500; Howell-Dorman Company. ?25; Goldberg- Bowen Company $50; Bowman & Co.. $2j; Sherman.

The Mayor said, in part: "On behalf of the citizens of Oakland I wish to thank you for the work you have done in the removal of the barrier between the two counties. When I was invited to speak here this evening I was informed that I might choose my own subject. I do not think that I could choose a better or more appropriate one than the subject of 'Good Roads,' and I have faith enough in the people of this city to believe that in the near future the city and county of Oakland, If you please, will present such attractions that our neighbors will be willing to build good roads in order to reach our city." Judge Henry A. Melvin responded to the toast "All Roads Will Lead to Oak land." Hon. W. R- Davis, a former Mayor of Oakland, spoke of the city twenty years ago, to-day and in the future. " J. D.

B. Sccord . Esq., of 13 Eastern Ave., Toronto, Ontario. "I tried a treat number of remedies without suc- cesj. I finally lost faith ia them all. I was so far gone that I could not for a lea? tisie bear any solid food in my stomach ; fait melancholy and depressed. Some four months ago a friend recommended your ' Golden Medical Dijcoverjr.' 'Alter a week's treatment I bad derived » much benefit that I continued the medicine, I hare taken three bottles and am convinced it has in my case accomplished a permaneat cure. I - can conscientiously recommend It to tie tioo- eands of dyspeptics throughout the laad." A man can succeed and be «trongif he heeds Nature's warnings.
