gold chains (some of them men's

In a quiet and composed manner the
possessor of this strange assortment
said: "I am Mrs. Grace - Squires. I
live at 1178 McAllister street. This is
my own property. I was in that place
on Turk street koklng for rooms when
I was moved by a sudden fit of curios
ity to look into that bureau."
The prisoner was taken to the City
Prison and Detectives Regan and
O'Connell were detailed on the case. It
developed that the address given by
Mrs. Squires was a correct one. She
had been living there with a Mrs. M.
Rogers for several weeks and for about
a month and a half previously at a
house on Ellis street. She has a nine
year-old daughter, Grace, who has been
with her.
Mrs. Squires says she is the wife of
a mining man of Downieville. She says
she left that town ; about two months
ago because of her health and brought
her little d?" jhter : with her. Every
article of jewelry she carried she as
serted was her own and the money, she
maintained, was a remittance from her
husband.
To a certain extent her assertions are
verified by Mrs. Rogers, . who says she
has known Mrs. Squires for two months
and that during that time she has seen
her wear many articles of jewelry that
correspond with the collection held by
the police.
There are many, points ; in the case
that are puzzling:. Mrs. Squires entered
Mrs. Campbell's room u with a key that
did not fit her : McAllister '6treet resi
dence. The little woman's quiet ac
ceptance of arrest is also puzzling. It
is regarded as either the fearlessness
of innocence or the sang froid of an old
crook. None of the jewels are like any
lost by Mrs. Wallace of 1645 ' Larkin
street on October 18. - Whether, or not
they belong to Mrs. Squires she will be
held on the burglary charge.

Mrs. Campbell.
"Why. I came into the house to look

"This is a queer way to look for

Schwab's campaign began in coffee,

According to report, Herman Sielken,
the big coffee merchant, had Schwab
as a market partner in his celebrated
bull campaign last -winter. Sielken as
a bear had drowned the bulls, under
the leadership of the .late Leonard
Lewisohn, in an ocean of coffee and
had broken the price from 12 cents to
5 cents a pound.

Joins With Herman Sielken When
Market Is Disrupted and Takes
Advantage of the Rise.^
Waving . his cap to assure those who
were following, his every move, Kna
benshue moved toward the rear of the
airship, v The Arrow pointed Its prow
upward, and, answering the pull of .the
propeller, soared lightly above the
fence and rapidly gained an altitude of
about 1000 feet.
CLEARS THE BARRICADE.
Knabenshue at that time was not
high enough to % clear the aeronautic
fence, and as he rapidly approached It
the crowd held its breath, fearing that
the craft would be dashed against ine
barricade and the aeronaut badly % in
jured or perhaps killed.
: The Arrow arose slightly and easily,
Its prow directed toward ' the west.
When at a height of about twenty-five
feet Knabenshue turned the rudder
and the aerial; craft, answering to its
helrii, pointed south and continued its
flight without Interruption.
Alter a*"- has^y - c"i&ailn»tian .Baldwin
announced; that- the: damage could be
repaired ¦ at once, - and said ;. that • Kna
benshue ;- would attempt another - flight
in a half-hour. : The. crowd," which was
being momentarily ; augmented, cheered
the announcement 'and patiently await
ed while the repairs were being made.
At the time fixed by. Baldwin the air
ship was again brought from the aero
drome and hastily groomed " for - the
flight. At* a signal from Knabenshue
it was cast loose and the motor started.
v The successful' flight cameras a cli
max : toik day ¦• full " of ' discouragement.
Baldwin^ arid* Knabenshue ' had worked
forj.twenty-iix- hours -without sleep' in
"order;: to*; prepare for the , flight, and the
first fessayjat ¦ an ascent, with Baldwin
himself in- command of the airship, had
ended disastrously, .the Arrow -falling

ST. LOUIS, Oct: 31— A. Roy Knaben
shue started' with the airship California
Arrow, from the aeronautic course at
the Exposition grounds at 3:37 o'clock
this afternoon and returned after a re
markable flight at 4:05 o'clock. On the
return trip the airship sailed slowly over
the exact spot from which it had arisen
twenty : eight minutes previously and
glided about 100 feet * farther west,
where it settled gracefully to the
ground. ,
, The descent /of the Arrow was the
signal „ for, a demonstration, the equal
of which has. not been seen since the
wheels of the World's Fair started last
April,: in, response to the pressure on a
key by President Roosevelt Dozens of
eager, hands were outstretched to 'grasp
the frame of the' airship, and the flying
machine,' with its '.' daring navigator,
was ' carried around the ¦ concourse upon
the shoulders of the shouting " men.
Hata- were thrown into the" air, and
when Knabenshue called ' for three
cheers for his home town:. they were
given with" ; a will arid : another round
followed ' for Knabenshue and Baldwin.'

"As a result of to-day's flight I'hav«
unquestionably Qualified for a trial.
Knabenshue went up with Instructions
not to go far from the aeronautic con
course and then bring the ship to the
ground after a trial of a half hour.
He came within two minutes of obey
ing my Instructions to the letter.**
Captain ; Baldwin was 'extremely op
timistic regarding the. future of hla
airship. He said:
"Now I will not be content to leave
before I have had several trials for
that 4100,000 prize. The conditions are
rather severe, but I think that the
Arrow can make the required distance
within th« time limit!
WILL TRY FOR THE PRIZE.
'\ When w «rUhln «. few hendred yards
of the concourse Knabenshue moved
forward;, the Arrow responded imme
diately to the downward shift and
sailed toward the. ground without a
dimlnishment of speed.
1 Knabenshue entered ' the concourse
from the east from a height of about
two hundred feet, and, slowing the
speed of his* motor, directed the airship
directly over the wooden trestles that
had supported the Arrow before ihe
flight started. His momentum was too
great to admit of stopping exactly in
the place from .which he had made the
ascent, but the airship settled to the
ground within one hundred feet-
Without: . deviation .the California
Arrow continued on in the teeth of the
Kreeze./ gaining speed and" rushing
tow ard , the concourse In an imposing
wanner?;,*--.-- .¦ - ' ,:¦¦' •-<-¦ /¦•',,- ." y
; Sailing first to. the northwest and
then to the southeast, occasionally
making complete turns, Knabenshue
continued In a generally easterly direc
tion until over the Cascades, the cen
ter of the. World's Fair grounds, and
about a mile and a. half in a direct line
from the -point of starting?.
* "At; about that time the barely per
ceptible breeze that had been blowing
from the northwest increased to about
eight miles an hour and veered to the
north. , In order to return, to the start
ing point it was necessary for Knaben
shue to breast this breeze.
SPEEDS ; AGAINST THE BREEZE.
He attempted several times to turn
to the left and then, suddenly, swung
the rudder "sharply in the other direc
tlonand the Arrow came into the wind,
staggered a moment and then, gaining
power,* came toward the concourse at
a speed that caused the spectators t<
cheer and to throw their, hats into the
air. The demonstration was observed
by Knabenshue, who leaned far out
and waved an empty ballast bag.
Knabenshue again change^ the direc
tion of the craft - and passed over the
crowd In the concourse. After proceed
ing one-half to three-quarters of a mile
westward Knabenshue turned > the air
ship about and again; passed -over; the
concourse, at the same time increasing
his altitude until . he was about 2500
feet above the earth. -
He Buys at Low Figure

f^T.LGUIS, Oct. 31.-— After circling* in every direction at a height of 2000
]£*¦ feet above the Cascades,' in sight of thousands of cheering, enthusiastic spec
tators on the World's Fair grounds, A. Roy Knabenshue of Toledo, in com
mand of the airship California Arrow, to-day- returned to the place from which
he had started. The airship " covered three and a half miles of the round trip
'under its own power and demonstrates the claims of the inventor, .Captain
Thomas S. Baldwin of San Francisco, that the California Arrow is not only dirig
;ible,; but that it can make headway against a breeze.
