The Supreme Court has decided that the Mayor and the Common Council of San Jose may lease a portion of Alum Rock Park to a man named p err y t who wishes to erect a hotel on the public reservation. George Har ter a citizen, objected to the scheme and secured an Injunction against the consummation of the deal. The court holds that property donated by an in dividual could not be thus leased, but the transaction is valid where the ground, as in the case at bar, has been set aside by the authorities as a public park.

This was brought to the attention of the Com missioners and Sheehan was ordered several days ago to report to Chief Wittman for duty, but he has failed to do so. Charges have be«n filed with the Police Commissioners against James F. Sheehan for insubordination, and they will be heard at the meeting of the board to-night.

Quong Chee- is a true Chinese when it i comes to tricks that are vain, and even j infringes* on some of the white man's - rights. He goes so far as to possess an : alias, which is Wong Sue. Coming ! across from Oaklai-d in the ferry Sat ' urday were Emil Gebaner and Albert ! Seyfrier.d. young men who were tempt '¦ ing fate in a city after a six months' • siege of toil in the mines at Koswick. , Their wardrobes were stored in two j wicker telescope grips, which they left under one of the seats on the lower deck of the ferry-boat while they went forward to study the formation of Tele ! graph Hill from a marine viewpoint. When the boat bumped into the slip ! they sought their luggage, but found ] it not. In a daze at the dishonesty of ! city dwellers they came outside, th? > ferry building and raw in the distance | the "glint of their wicker wardrobes, i with a Chinaman, plodding through ' the mire of East street, clinging va j liantly to them. The two miners beat Joseph Meyer went into a Chinese restaurant on Clay street Saturday night and ordered a repast. It con sisted of chicken, . duck, $12 worth of ham and eggs, frijoles and three pieces of hot mince pie. The magnificence of the order caused the chink to conclude that at last he was famous and he saw golden streams and fashionable people pouring into his narrow eating house. After Meyer had dined he sat back and rolled a cigarette. He had dined and was impervious to fate. When he arose to eo the Chinaman gently questioned him about compensation. For reDly Meyer pushed the muzzle of a revolver in front of. the Chinaman's nose at such an angle that the slant ing eyes of the Oriental almost became perpendicular in trying to realize the awful possibilities of eternity contained in that narrow barrel. But when Meyer had departed, leav ing the score unpaid: the Chinaman blew a police whistle and secured the aid of a policeman to whom alt guns looked alike. The accused man was before Judge Conlan yesterday and was fined ?50, which it is understood he will pay. .Judge Conlan tame to the same de cision and the little chaps will have to learn from Judge Murasky the full enormity of the offense of staying up late. There have also been Instruc tions from the Juevnile Court that the police are to arrest any children, of school age who are engaged in selling papers or other commodities on the streets during the hours when they should be in school. Beware, children! •The bogie man'll git you ef you don't watch out." Under instructions from Superior Judge Murasky the police are taking into custody all of the little boys who vend sum "and other merchandise on the streets after S o'clock, thus violat ing the curfew ordinance. Judge Mo gan had twelve of the kids before him yesterday and Judge Conlan dealt with •eight of the cases. '"Curfew must not ring to-day," said Judge Mogan. as he eyed the gran? of unwashed Italian kid?. "I think this is a matter for the Juvenile Court." "I find that you are a traveler in three distinct senses. You were com ing from Tonopah; you intended to re turn to Tonopah on the first train and at the time of your forcible flight down the basement stairs where you were arrested you were certainly going some. Defendant is discharged." Judge Cabaniss, • always a Daniel come to judgment, found plenty of ex cuses for Charles Johnson, a Tonopah miner, who appeared before him yes terday on a. charge of carrying con cealed weapons. Johnson averred, a art his demeanor spoke truth, that he had come on a hurried business trip from the desert mining camp, where a heavy gun is as much of a garment as a pair of socks. He intended to catch the next train to the waterless, gold-banded bar rens of the Sagebrush State, but chance acquaintances caused him to overlook the time limit. When he sought the tram It had gone and would not come back for him. So he made one glad night of. it in the city. During his wanderings he met some kings of evil with whom he be came embroiled. They rudely threw him into a rathskeller at Geary and Market streets and his trusty revolver popped from its hidden depths. A po liceman came along and arrested John son for carrying concealed weapons. Judge Cabaniss charged him in the fol lowing opinion. BaliiY Xell Carmichae!. J., concurring: Coroner Leland held an inquest yes terday morning on the body of Giu seppi Martini, a divekeeper ..t S23 Pa ci.lc street, who was shot and killed on January 6 by Edward Richards. The jury returned a verdict of justifiable homicide. The evidence was to the effect that Richards and a depraved female habitue of the dive were drinktns lager beer together, a bottle being: ordered at a time, the charge for each bottle being GO cents as against the regulation price of 10 cents in the groceries. A dispute arcse between Richard3 and Martini respecting the payment for one bottle of beer. Richard3 claiming that he had already paid 50 cents for it and Martini insisting that he had not paid anything. Finally Richards declared that he did not purpose to pay again and that he was being im posed upon. Martini thereupon resort ed to the usual argument of the dive keepers—a police club— and was ad vancing toward Richards with the weapon raised. Richards warned him to keep back, and Martini continuing to advance after the second warning. Richards fired. iF- f -',s .;¦-?¦ ' In rendering their verdict the jurors said: '•We believe from the testimony in the case that the said Edward Rich ards feared great bodily injury and fired the sliot in self-defense: and we furthermore believe it to be a case of justiflable homicide." Richards* preliminary examination began before Police Judge Mogan yes terday. Two witnesses were examined. One of them v.as the girl who was with Richards at the time of the shooting. She srfid there were no words and no quarrel previous to the killing. She said she w^s sitting at a table with Richards in the dance hall when she 'heard a shot and saw Mar tini fall to the ground. The hearing will be resumed this forenoon. Put on Good Behavior. Alfred Colon and Pedro Rivera, two young Porto Ricans who were convict ed on a charge of burglary in Judge Lawlor's court, appeared for sentence yesterday. They entered the jewelry store of Giuseppe Licata. SOS Broad way, on November 15. Father Anto nio M. Santandreu made a strong plea for mercy for the two defendants and promised to assume their direction and control if they were given" a chance to reform.

Dojr Takes Lons Jump. A dog belonging to J. Sylvester of IS Mason street jumped from the roof of the Lynwood Hotel yesterday morn in?r to the ground, fifty feet below. The animal struck and broke a wire in the course of its descent and reached the pavement alive, but badly injured. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals had the dog asphyxiated. Japanese Seeks l>aniasrc~. H. Dochi, a Japanese, brought -suit in Justice of the Peace Daniels* court yesterday ajcainst Charles Mahoney to recover 5299 damages. Dochi alleges that Mahoney pushed him off an £llfs street car on the morningr of January 26, 1903. and that he sustained in juries that prevented him from work ing for many months. The Judge took the case under advisement. urged the Finance Committee to make arrangements for- an exhibit in the Model City. Phelan announced that an endeavor would be made to raise 535,000 additional by popular sub scription in order that the amount for a creditable exhibit will aggregate 550,000. ; Xegro Agor.tino has an equity in one of the most wonderful timepieces that ever came from the hands of a watchmaker. For its rarity he values it highly and rightly enough. If watches were sold by the pound It would be worth nearly a million dol lars. Compared to it the ferry clock looks like a finger ring timepiece. Agontino found himself Saturday night with his precious watch and a hold-over thirst that needed quench ing. With considerable exertion he packed his jag and the watch to a pawnbroker named Crockett on Clay street, who advanced $3 on the unique indicator, but refused to lend on the jag. The next morning Agontino awoke without his cherished posses sion and obtained a search warrant against the pawnbroker. The case was before Judge Conlan yesterday. The pawnbroker and his assistant took the disputed watch to court. Luckily the courtroom was not crowded, otherwise the exhibit would have been deposited in Portsmouth square for inspection. Agostino could speak no English and told his story through an Italian interpreter. He said the watch had been stolen from him while he was drinking. "What!" said Judge Conlan. "Steal a watch like that from a man? Why, it would be easier to steal a truck load of sewer pipe out of his inside pocket. If this man carried this watch and it was taken from him sud denly he would have gone up in the air 300 feet and floated around in definitely." The pawnbroker testified that Agos tino had personally received $3 and given his unique timepiece as a pledge. The Judge told the complaining wit ness that he would have to pungle up the $3 if he wished ever to connect himself with his ponderous watch again, and dismissed the case. Conroy will go to Baden some day, but he will have a compulsory stop over privilege at Branch County Jail Xo. 2 on the Ingleside road punched in his ticket that will detain him for some time from his arrival at his original destination. In gathering up the silver the old man overlooked $5 in gold, but not so Conroy, who was next in line. Deftly he annexed the glittering coin and or dered a seat in the train, as far as Baden. Behind Conroy was Mrs. G. E. Hamill of this city, who saw Conroys peculation. When she learned that the old man was searching for his missing money she told him who the thief was and a policeman did the rest. Patrick Conroy --as convicted of p»tty larceny in Judge Fritz's court yesterday and will be given a sentence to-day. He grew industrious at the win dow of the Southern Pacific depot at Third and Townsend streets Sunday and attached himself to a five-dollar gold piece to which he could lay no legal claim. An elderly man named William Jones bought a ticket to San Jose and tendered in payment a ten dollar piece. The clerk gave him the ticket and the change. A committee consisting of E. B. Pond, F. J. Symmes and J. D. Phelan The San Francisco committee mem bers were disappointed at the refusal of the Commissioners to promise to pay for erecting the San Francisco building at St. Louis at the estimated cost of $12,000, and did not hesitate to say so after the conference was ended. As neither the executive committee nor the display committee for the city was fully represented no action could be taken. A report will be made back as to the lack of success. The expecta tion of the San Francisco committee is that the show to be made by this city will cost about $50,000 to collect, install and maintain during the continuance of the St. Louis exposition. While the St. Louis Commissioners yesterday declined to guarantee $12,000 to defray the cost of the San Fran cisco bulldlne, it was agreed to pay the transportation charges on all that San Francisco wishes to send on as exhibits. As the San Francisco display will consist principally of maps, pic tures and other articles that have little weight, the transportation item will not be. relatively, very large. The Board of Supervisors yesterday adopted a resolution authorising an appropriation of $5000 out of the ur gent necessity fund, if it contains that amount on June 30, 1904, and pledg ing the board to appropriate an addi tional 510,000 for the purpose of de fraying a portion of the expense of a municipal exhibit at the St. Louis ex position. It was also pointed out by the mem bers of the San FVancisco committee in conference that unless San Fran cisco has its own building at the great show it will not be distinctively rep resented, while many counties will be on exhibition in the agriculture build ing:. The conference did not last long. The St. Louis Cemmisaioners said that it would be impossible to appropriate 512,000 as asked for the reason that the entire appropriation has been prac tically apportioned and there are un avoidable expenses that will be very large. For instance, the railroads are going to charge a rate of 60 cents per 100 pounds for moving exhibits from San Francisco to St. Louis. This rate is for goods moved in one direction. Those which are to be brought back to California will trke a higher rate. There are tons of mineral exhibits to be moved to the mines and mining building. There are many tons of fruits In glass, vegetables, educational exhib its and various bulky products which at the transportation one-way rate of 60 cents per 100 pounds will make away with the funds very fast. COMMITTEE DISAPPOINTED. REFUSE APPROPRIATION. The Commissioners to the St. Louis exposition were asked yesterday by the executive committee and members of the display committee for the city and county of San Francisco to appropriate $12,000 to pay for the erection of a mu nicipal building at St. Louis to house the exhibits this city will send on to the great show and declined to make the grant. . Ex-Mayor Phelan. Presi dent Symmes of the Merchants' Asso ciation, President E. B. Pond of the San Francisco Savings Union and Mr. Colburn, secretary of the San Fran cisco committee, waited en the St. Louis Commissioners at the Russ Houie. Commissioners Filcher and "Wiggins were in the headausirters of the commission when the delegation from San Francisco called. Within a very few minutes a confer ence took place. The representation was made in behalf of San Francisco that this city pays about one-third of ail the taxes paid in this State. The State % appropriated $150,000 for St. Louis. On that basis, so said the mem bers of the committee. $12 COO was not a large sum to be appropriated to have San Francisco provided with an appropriate building among the other municipal structures to be reared at St. Leais. All through, the hearin? the defend ant, gowned modestly in brack, sat rmiling at the discomfiture of Lay mance and showing no traces of anx ierY on her own account. At 4:20 o'clock the hearing was ad jcurne<l until Wednesday morning, when Laymance will be further cross examined and the prosecution expects to present more testimony of bank offi cials to the effect that they do not be lieve the signature to be -genuine. Jam*! H. Swift. pr^Fident of the Columbian Banking Company, was a witness for the prosecution as a hand writir:? expert. He told the court that fce bas^d his conclusion that the dis puted checks vrere suprious on the fact that they were not written on forms ordinarily used by Laymance and in the demeanor of the defendant when the was accused by the bank officials of presenting a forced cneck. During th* cross-examination it was strongly hinted by counsel for the defense that Mr. Swift, who is the actual complain ing witness, and the institution which he represents would be made defend ants in a heavy damage suit. BA.VKKR TESTIFIKS. l"ndf r tfce law? of evidence Judge | Cabaniss was powerless to prevent the \ revelation of the relations which Lay- j nance is alleged to have borne to the i v.oraan whom he now accuses of forg ing h:s name to a check. It was not a ; particularly peasant story to listen to, despite the repeated assertions of Lay mance that for the twelve years of ! th^ir acquaintance there was nothing meretricious in their association. From the Questions asked on cross-examina tion it was evident that the defense was loaded to the muzzle with testimony, rot only to refute the charge of for r«T- but further to prosecute the case In civil and possibly criminal proceed- i n c c Judge Cabaniss clearly intimated his opinion cf the merits of the case during the grilling of Laymance by stating in rlain language that he believed the al legred spurious check to have been writ ten by the same hand that penned ad mittedly genuine exemplars of the fame character? introduced as evi dence. He did this for the # purpose of to spare the witness the frtur* 1 of a castigating cross-question ing. The prosecution's counsel failed to grasp the situation and allowed his client v to suffer the ordeal. Among the witnesses introduced by the prosecution was Daniel E. Ames. one of the old school of handwriting ex perts. During his examination Judjre Cabaniss picked up two checks, both claimed to be forged, one for $50 and one for HO. "Show me the essential differences between these two checks." said the Judgw. The expert went into a long discourse on up-«rrok~s. slants, shading and other technical terms. Finally he specified one check as genuine and the uther as a forgery. As both of the checks were claimed to be forgeries his further testimony fell on unheeding •ars.

In vain the Jud^re trif>d to save Layraance from the arrows of the defendant's attorney by gentle suggestior.s that the real es tate man's reputation might be spared if the prosecution would consent to dis miss the case.

Detective Ed Gibson, sitting closely alongside of him. wliisj>er<?d hoarsely in an imper ative manner, loud enough to be heard by those in the jury box. "Take your hand off that quick." Laymance straightened up and abandoned self protective measures in favor of appeals to the court for protection against the bantering questions of the defendants counsel. Board of Supervisors Appro priate Money for Represen tation at St. Louis Exposition Edward Richards Is Declared to Have Been Justified in Killing of Ginseppi Martini Jud^e Cabaniss Pleads With tin* Prosecution to Withdraw Chanre, but Without Avail The case of Edward Sproat, accused j of concealing property with the in- . tention of defrauding his creditors, was continued by Judge Fritz yester day *or one wek by consent of coun sel on both Bides. Sproat is one of the two brothers v.ho conducted a market at Eleventh and Market streets and failed. After the failure it was discovered that large amounts of j produce and poultry- had been pur- t chased from dealers and sold at less than wholesale rates. The Board oi" Trade instituted an inquiry and dis covered that the proceeds of these transactions approximated $60,000. Sproat remains in the City Prison, having been unable so far to secure $20,000 bail which is exacted for his liberation. His brother Samuel is un der arrest at San Jose on a similar charge and is stiil in custody. Judge Fritz yesterday sentenced the Imitative Chinaman to six months in the County Jail. He enunciated the opinion, in passing sentence, that the yellow flood should carefully avoid competing with native thieves, as that line «;f industry was already over crowded. the Chink to the crossing by a nose and recovered their belongings. Then they turned him over to a policeman.
