ELECTION' CONTEST IN* STOXYBROOK DISTRICT BERKELEY, June 17.— The reorgani zation of the Berkeley Fire Depart ment has begun, and the efforts of Mayor Thomas Rlckard and Fire Chief James Kenny, seconded by the Trus tees, to give the town a better fire ser vice are bearing fruit. Berkeley has been practically without fire or police protection for years, and the present Board of Trustees, at the Initiative of Rickard, has been attempting to reme dy this delinquency. The old volunteer department is being largely replaced by paid firemen. In a few years more the department will be entirely paid. Several important changes are bslng made in the department, to take effect on or before July 1. Two old flre houscs will be abandoned and four new men added to the list of paid firemen by that date. The money saved from the abandonment of the houses is used to pay the salaries of the firemen, which now amount to $145 a month. These men have only antiquated ap paratus with which to work but hope to be better equipped if the proposed bond issue Is approved by the voters. With the $145 a month expended on As the lease of the ground on which stands the Lorin flrehouse will expire on July 1, the Trustees ordered the building removed to the home of the fire chief who will use it as a barn. salaries the city gets the services of twenty-nine men, who receive $5 each. The changing of these men from volun teers to salaried flre-flghters has been going on for two years and twenty five of them have been carried on the city pay-roll for a year. As fast as the fire companies are disbanded cer tain of the members are retained for the pay department. In those com panies that remain intact, however, there are still 150 volunteers who assist at fires. The paid men are scattered among the following companies: North Berkeley — Jack Hampton.

POLICE BOARD XAMIiS NEW PRISON MATROX When the City Council passed an or dinance which permitted bicyclists to use the sidewalks under certain re strictions the legislative body went outside -of its powers, according to a decision that was rendered to-day by Police Judge George Samuels. His Honor ruled that the sidewalks of the city are for the exclusive use of pe destrians, that cyclicts are not pedes trians and, therefore, the bicycle can not be ridden on a sidewalk. For that reason the case of William Clarke, a wheelman, who failed to turn out and dismount when meeting a pe df.=trian on a sidewalk, was dismissed, the decision being that any punish ment administered under the ordinance would be invalid. The Judge used the following lan guage regarding the question: Any law that attempt* to Kiv« a bfcyclttt privileges to ride on a cMrwalk la Invalid. The Council has no right to permit the wheelman under any restriction* to use the ¦>!<!e«-alk that under the municipal charter is for th« exclusive use of pedf-Mrlans. When a City Council attempts to grant permission to cyclUtK to rids on the sidewalk It goes ouUid«s of Its powers. I rid? a wheel myself, but I keep to the street. The city must have a new ordinance, or no more arrt-Ms of violators of the bicycle law will b? of avail. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1016 Broadway, June 17. F. E. Chapin. the street railway pro moter of San Jose, cannot recover $S503 that the City Council hold? as the price paid for the franchises granted to J. H.

The College avenue franchise has been turned over to Chapin. who holds as veil any rights there may be in the 55500 that was bid for the franchise. After Macdonald won the contest he rrade a dicker with the Oakland Transit Consolidated by which that company, the original applicant, gained control « f Cat East Oakland franchise. The ether ore was assigned to Chapin. for >» hom. it is understood, Macdonald had b'-en acting. For some reason not explained Chapin did not think much of his bargain, and ;i short time ago put in an application to the City Council for the return of his The Council has persisted in ignoring the demand, and for the fourth or fifth time has passed the request in commit tee.

Judging from the word ing of the indictment, the law does not take duelists seriously, or it would not admit the supposition that they do not enter, into the encounter with any 'deadly intention. In this case proof was forthcoming that the affair had been carried out fairly, according to the recognized rules .of. the code, and the prisoner was acquitted. The family of the deceased^took no part in the criminal prosecution, .but obtained in the civil action 1 fran: damages and One Franc for Duelist's Life. Very few people, says Railway Loco motive and Engineering, would doubt the electric telegraph being exclusively a modern invention, yet experiments were made centuries before the electric telegraph came Into use, which indi cated that a system of electric teleg raphy could have been worked out had the need of it existed. In 1746 Le Monnier exhibited a series of experiments in the Royal Gardens at Paris showing how erectricity could be transmitted through iron wires 95Q fathoms in length. In 1753 Charles Mar shall published a remarkable descrip tion of the electric telegraph in the Scots' Magazine under the title of "An Expeditious Method of Conveying In telligence." In 1846 George Lewis Le sage, professor of mathematics at Geneva, promulgated an invention of an electric telegraph, which he eventu ally completed and set to work In 1774. This system was composed of twenty four I metallic wires, insulated and in closed in a non-conducting substance. Each wire ended in a stock mounted with a little ball of elder pith and sus pended by a silk thread. When a cur rent of electricity was sent through the wire the eider ball at the opposite end was repolled, the \ movement desig nating a letter of the alphabet. By this means word3 could be spelled out. It was a crude method, but it was a com plete electric telegraph system. The reason why this and other inventions of a. similar nature never came into general use was that the need had not arrived. — Express Gazette. Early Telegraphs.
