PEOPLE OF NAPLES TENDER HEARTY WELCOME Former Justice Charles X. Fox of the Supreme Court of California, was stricken with paralysis about 5 o'clock yesterday morning at his home, 1057 Market street. Dr. A. K. Crawford, who was called in to attend the Jurist, entertains little hope for his • recovery. Judge Fox has been slowly sinking sinc« he was stricken and it is thought the end will come within twenty-four hours. Charles N. Fox came to California in 1858. having' been admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of Michigan dur ing the previous year. For more than twenty-five years he practiced law In San Francisco, during which time he served' as general attorney - for the Spring Valley Water Company of San Francisco. In 18S9 he received a com mission as Justice ¦ of * the Supreme •Court of the . State from Governor Waterman, being appointed to fill out the unexpired term of Jackson Temple, who had resigned. Judsr. Fox is a prominent member of the Odd Fellows of California, and has served as a member and as president of the Board of Education of Oakland. OakianiJ Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway.

To the foreign residents Governor Solf so far has been satisfactory. He caused the native people to piant at least 1,000,000 cocoanut trees during: German occupation, arid" these trees will within a few years be in full bearing, adding about 50 per cent to the native copra crop. Under other inspiration the na tives are planting cacao and the Gov ernor is encouraging- the movement. Evidently, despite many difficulties, Samoa -Is advancing. Freight rates from San Francisco' practically pro hibit trade, so few orders go to that port, while, business with the colonies is prospering. It is generally believed that the interests of a single German rirm are too closely considered, but that the ' orders : for' the extension of favor comes directly, from Berlin and that the Governor is powerless to coun teract it. :;^W&&&2&SBS&lm38BBBte A nrartcal event of mere than passias In terest wiil tik<T place on- Sunday afternoon.

ALAMEDA, April 2S.— Four persons attacked and beaten in three nights is the record of "Jack the Swatter" up to date. Women and children are the favored prey of the nocturnal ruffian. He began his reign of terror Sunday night by waylaying and cruelly strik ing Mrs. W. F.

Samuel Mellust, who occupied rcoms in the Third -street place, testified concerning Anderson's pistol shooting and of his insane no tions that he was to be lynched; that men were pursuing him. Dr. O.

Ford recounted their experiences with Anderson when he shot at them after they had been sent to the house. Sergeant of Police Charles E. Clark explained to the jury what occurred when he shot at- Anderson through the window in the place where he saw the negro— aiming a pistol at him. Anderson dropped, and it is sup posed Clark's bullet was the fatal one. Immediately a fterward policemen en tered the bombarded house and took the dying negro. Members of the Salvation Army took charge of the funeral of Anderson, which was held this afternoon at Moun tain View Cemetery, where the body was interrefi.
