As to the story told by Campbell that on the night of the shooting she told him that "She had a gun as good as his," Mrs. Campbell says that it is absolutely false; that she merely told him that she would not return to him and asked him to leave the house. She says on one occasion since the divorce Campbell had attempted to beat her because' she refused to live with him again. Dr. R. T. Stratton. who is attend ing Mrs. Campbell, said her condition was somewhat improved to-day and that unless blood poisoning should set In 'she had an excellent chance for re covery. The surgeon fears, however, that the rusty corset steel, which was driven into her chest ahead of the bul let, may have left poison in the wound. If so there will be little chance of saving Mrs. Campbell's life. OAKLAND, Nov. 14. — Mrs. Laura C. Campbell, who was shot and dan gerously, wounded Saturday night by her divorced husband, Lem C.

"The prosecuting officers will be ready with a strong case against Kiniry. It seems to me that the Oakland police should send a man to Los Angeles at once to be at hand at all times until he shall be ready to return to Oakland with Kiniry." Chief Hodgking has made no move toward sending a man south. He has been too, busy with the scandalous ex posures in his department. Not only did Smith affirm this state ment on his deathbed at the Receiving Hospital, but he said It to Captain of Police W. J. Petersen and to others be fore his last words were taken for use should his murderer be captured. Leach said to-day: ' In preparation for the trial of David Klniry. the Los Angeles burglar, who Is charged with the murder of Police man James H. Smith of Oakland, Pros ecuting Attorney A. P. Leach began to-day to frame" the case he will present against the notorious housebreaker. Leach declares his belief that he will be able to establish a perfect chain of circumstantial as well as considerable direct testimony to connect Kiniry with the slaying. Much of the evidence is contained in the testimony that was taken at the Coroner's inquest in the case of Frank Goldstein, Kinlry's companion, who was killed by Patrolman Smith when the fatal three-cornered duel occurred, a year ago. But there Is more incrim inating detail that is being carefully studied. Attorney Leach gives Police man Smith's dying statement an Im portant place in the light of Kinlry's admission that he Was with Goldstein the night of the shooting. Kiniry has asserted that Goldstein, and not him self, shot Smith. Against that declara tion will be the dying words of the of ficer: "The man I shot was not the man who shot me." Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1016 Broadway, Nov. 14. BERKELEY, Nov. 14.— Tha struggle between Captain J. T. Nance, military instructor at the University of Cali fornia, and the riotous members of the senior class Is rapidly approaching a climax and thirty-nine members of that class have been notified by the captain that their explanations as to their con nection with the recent outbreak Is un satisfactory. This means that thess seniors cannot graduate unless they meet Captain Nance's requirements. This is about one-half of the class and neither Captain Nance nor the seniors are apparently inclined to give in. The members of the senior class were Instructed last week to give their ex planations • of tho riot to Captain Nance. Most of the"* members of tha class informed the instructor that they could not get into the classroom "be cause of the crowd." Captain Nance to-day called the entire class 'before him and declined to accept this ex planation. Each member of .the class was presented with a sheet of paper containing the formal charges against him and at the bottom Captain Nance had noted by the word "satisfactory" or "unsatisfactory" his approval or re jection of the explanation of the stu dent. The explanations of forty-one students were accepted and thirty-nine were rejected. Captain Nance informed the class that if the students specified the indi viduals of the crowd who prevented them from entering the classroom the explanation would be accepted. This means that Captain Nance is deter mined to get the names of the ring leaders and is trying to force the stu dents to give them. -It also means that thirty-nine stu dents will have to explain further or lose their diplomas and that this num ber does not include those who are yet to be disciplined for the riot. Captain Nance Is ruling the case with the Iron hand of a strict military man and up to the present time has been supported in every move by the authorities. Prosecution Preparing to Confront Burglar Kiniry With Strong Testimony Captain Nance Not Satisfied With the Explanations ot Thirty-Nine Students Throughout the hearing lurks the figure of Van Horn, professor and de tective. The defense say they will show that he disguised himself as a Chinese and shadowed his own home. Mrs. Seibel testified that she found a Chinese with an umbrella on the back porch one stormy night. The case will go on in the morning and it is expected that to cap the other tes timony Van Horn will tell of times and dates in which he has spied upon his wife. Mrs. Lizzie Seibel, who weighs 250 pounds and was cook at the boarding house, testified to having found Knopf on divers occasions kissing her mis tress. Miss Josephine Brown, trained nurse, had seen Mrs. Van Horn, ac companied by a young man, enter a lodging-house. the proprietor of which later identified Mrs. Van Horn and Knopf as the couple to whom she had several times rented a room. The Van Horns have been married for twenty years and have two chil dren, a daughter of 18 years and a son of 14. While Van Horn taught school at San Rafael his wife con ducted a student boarding-house at 2222 Bancroft way, Berkeley. One of the boarders was Adolph Knopf, a student, 21 years of age. Mrs. Van Horn is apparently near the fifty-year mark, tall and spare. She listened to the testimony against her with a weary smile. OAKLAND, Nov. 14. — A college youth, a boarding-house mistress, a professor, a corpulent cook, students and other witnesses form the dramatis personae of a sensational divorce case, the hearing of which was begun be fore Judge Ogden this morning, when the suit of Ross Van Horn vs. Marion Van Horn was called. The plaintiff is the principal of the San Rafael High School. He accuses his wife of being in love with Adolph Knopf, a post-graduate student at the Univer sity of California. His Infatuation for Boardlng-House Mistress, Age 50, Leads to . Divorce Suit. UNIVERSITY STUDENT IS XAMED AS CO-RESPOXDEXT DYING WORDS MAY CONVICT MORE TROUBLE FOR SENIORS The only member of the accused four who has remained In Oakland is Ham erton. He persists in denials of wrong doing and says he is ready, to face a trial. Hamerton continues to declare that he has repeatedly called the at tention of Chief Hodgklns to com plaints that prisoners were robbed by policemen after they had been taken into custody. Chief Hodgkins has referred the charges against Policeman Frank Sill to the Police Commissioners. The evi dence, according to Hodgklns, is very weak. It was said Sill had been seen leaving Becker's meat market with a ham. Sill declares his innocence and insists the accusation comes from per sonal enemies. "W. J. Tobln, who was appointed to fill one of the vacancies In the department, has declined the position, being satis fied to hold his place with the Howard Company, that pays him $90 a month. The Police Commissioners will meet Friday to take further action with re lation to the situation. Patrolman Shannon Is being pressed for promotion to a sergeant's place. The police attitude is that the evi dence was gathered not for purposes of criminal prosecution, but to force the quartet out of the department. To that end It is asserted that pressure was put upon them to compel them to tell the truth concerning the pllferings. Here the prosecuting officers say they might be handicapped should they go to trial against the four disgraced policemen. Prosecuting Attorney Leach said to day: . I cannot find sufficient evidence to warrant issuance of complaints against any of the men. That there Is ample proof, of their wrongdoing there can be no question, bat this does not satisfy th« legal requirement con cerning evidence*. If anything further Is presented than has already come to my attention I shall b« very careful to consider It thoroughly. I am doing what I consider to be my full duty aa a prosecuting officer and I shall not flinch. Harnerton's residence was searched a few days ago under Chief Hodgklns' direction, but no evidence was uncov ered. Prosecuting Attorney A. P. Leach has decided that he has not sufficient evidence upon which to Issue criminal complaints charging former Sergeant ot Police Charles E. Clark and dismissed Policemen J. F. Stahl, L. E. Andrews and C. W. Hamerton with burglary or larceny. This decision is not final. City Attorney J. E. McElroy, who is also president of the Board of Police and Fire Commissioners, will hold a con ference with Attorney Leach to-mor row. At that meeting the statements of the witnesses — Sergeant of Police Frank Lynch, Patrolman Shannon and Spe cial Policeman Newell Goodwin— will be reviewed, as will the written confes sions of Andrews and Stahl. As president of the board McElroy said to-day: My position concerning tee prosecution of these man on charge* of theft Is simply this: I believe the courts should pass upon the evi dence. If these men are guilty of crime they should be punished. If they are not guilty. It seems to me they would Invite prosecution that their defense might vindicate them. I have not had an opporunlty as yet to meet Mr. Leach and Chief Hodgklns la a discussion concerning the evidence. I have not seen the confessions, nor have I heard the statements of all of the witnesses. Oakland Office San Francisco Call. .1016 Broadway, Nov. 11. Trainer Christie criticized Coach Lan agan of "Stanford foFcoachlng from the side lines during the game, declaring that it was unsportsmanlike and im proper from any standpoint. He Bug gested the framing of regulations which would prevent a repetition of the al leged infraction of football ethics. Of the football eleven Force, Lasa ter. Stern, Snedigar, Kern and Boothe made short addresses, thanking the previous speakers for kind words spoken. Tell Leader Bulkeley spoke briefly in praise of the rooters and was received with enthusiasm. He told how a few plans of the rooters had "gone agley." The California rooters were congratulated for the splendid showing made during th« game. I knew that I had a hard contract when I undertook the job this year, but I didn't stop on that account. We did the best we could under the conditions, and some of thes* were Inevitable. Had It not been for Injuries and disease we should have won. We fought them to a standstill and when our men gave way they gave way physloally and not In spirit. It was only when battered bodies could do no more that Stanford was able to win. Hopper made a hit by requesting that any or all blame be put upon him, and not on the team, declaring that death was not too severe a punishment for a man who should criticize the Cali fornia team. He spoke in part as fol lows : I certainly am not disappointed with the work of the team. On the other hand I am absolutely satisfied. It was the most herolo game I ever saw. Tou ought to kill the man who dares to criticize the team. If any crit icism comes It ought to be directed at me. I can stand it. In accordance with the customs of past years, the blue and gold football enthusiasts gathered on the steps of the gymnasium at the university this morning to hold the annual rally fol lowing the big game with Stanford. President Wheeler, Coach Hopper, Trainer Christie and members of the football team made short speeches. Hopper has been criticized in various quarters for his handling of the team and his Inability to make eleven cham pions out of green material, but Presi dent Wheeler utilized the occasion to give Hopper unusually emphatic praise. He said: There never was a team I should have wished to see win so much as the one that went down to glorious defeat last Saturday. It went into the contest Inferior In weight an.J physical strength to the Stanford team, and it took grit and spirit to make It tha equal of Stanford, which feat was done in the first half. I particularly want to speak of "Jimmy" Hopper and his magnificent spirit, spirit which he transferred to his men and made them light a memorable battle. A team needs rigid organization and spirit and Hopper gave the eleven both. What It lacked In pounds and experience Hopper made up in spirit, and It was this courage that made It take the fearful pummeling and meet the trip hammer of the opposing team. For the sake of California the eleven played Its hopeless game like men and revived and closed the con test gaining ground. There la no fight like aa uphill fight. I am prouder of that team than of any other that has upheld the blue and gold since I have known this university. I make no excentlons. Berkeley Office San Francisco Call, 2148 Center Street, Nov. 14. This cemmitte* Is fully convinced that with in easy i»ach of Oakland there Is an abundant surrly of water of good quality that may be obtained at a moderate cost. From near the town cf Pecoto to th* southern boundary of the county and underneath the alluvial soil are extensive gravel be<is at varying depths and sJl carrying great quantities of water. Land can be purchased at different points, wells bored and pumped from a common center by electric rower. The water can be forced Into a p!r* line and brought to the distributing system already spoken of. In fact, a lanre part of the city's present supply and all of Alameda's snrply comes from such wells at Alvarado. We believe thtt land can be bought sufficient for our purposes. wells bored. Reliable estimate* have been made showing that consoswrs of water In our city can pay the bonds necessary for the new plant, both principal ana Interest, during the forty years they have to run. and still not pay as high rates for water as we now pay to the Contra Cr>FtA Water Company. It will require from two to thrs* years to construct the works pro posed by the Bay Cities Water Company. Of the underground proposition the committee reports: Oakland has. therefore, no alternative but to confctrucl or buy an independent system. The committee has conF'dered various propo rtions and has eliminated all but two. The committee is unanimous in saying that both Of. these are good and that either plan will subserve the needs of the city. There Is a Flight diversity of opinion In the committee ; r to preference, but that Is all. Both plans contemplated laying by the city of a com plete distributive system that fhall be mod ern, up to date and of the very best material. In addition, the city must erect and main tain a Dumping slant near the Fruitvale boundary line for forcing the water to a dis tributing reservoir at sufficient height. The cost cf this distributing system, pumping plant and reservoir will not exceed $2,000,000. TTiis cost must be added to any estimate of cost for either of the two plant*. In detail the committee presents both proposition*. After showing that the Bay Cities Company purposes to install a plant that will supply the city with at least 20,000,000 gallons of water a day. to cost 53.750,000. with nearly J2, 000.000 added for a distributing system, the statement continues: The price asked by the Bay Cities Water Company Is, In our opinion, moderate. The Contra Coata Water Company claims its plant i* worth more than $7,000,000. This plant has an old distributive system, pipe lines that have seen their best flays and a water supply from lAke Chabot, which Is Itself supplied 5y creeks running through a settled and agricul tural country. Its system cannot deliver any thing like 20.000,000 gallons per day. We do not believe It can exceed 12,000.000 gallons p«r day. In the event of a prolonged drought LsJte Chabot is certain to fall. Adding (2.000. 000 for a Cletributlve system to the $3,750,000 asked by the Bay Cities Water Company makes a total of $5,750,000. But for that amount the city ¦will get a new. first-class dis tributing system, pumping plants, new pipe lines and at least 20,000,000 gallons of water r*r day. To tUe voter- of Oakland: The City Council appointed the undersigned a special committee to lnvestlcate and report upon propositions presented to It fcr acquiring a water supplj for the city. After consultation with rilthj members of the Council and receiving their nppro\Rl -t bas been determined to submit r>r your contidersticn two propositions, wltn the r»<ju<--5t that >x.u express your preference. This committee d<*s DOC believe nor does It encourage the hope that it will b* poembla to formulate any reasonable scheme ror a municipally owned water plant that will not b* the object of attack In the court by some corporation or other adverse interest. It does believe, however, that the two propositions herein recvmiT'ended are as free from Uan£-ra of this kind as ere any that could be pre sented and we are not apprehensive of serl ou» obstacles or Olay to the successful con summation of either cf the proposed plans. The city muit take eome risk In this regard <r else be forever held up by Interests ad verse to the welfare of the city. The committee desires your opinion as to which one of these •chemes- should be adopted. It intends to make the result* of this Informal vote a sart of its report to the City Council. As to its decision to present the two proposals it has selected the committee Fays: Some of our citiseas undoubtedly prefer the purchase 01 the Contra Costa plant and dis tributing system, provided it could be boupnt at a valuation not exorbitant. This is In ac cord with the Idea of the committee, but this «v.mmittee Is certain that a purchase at any thing like a reasonable price Is impossible, for the reason ameng others that although ths compary made a written agreement a short time «tnoe to s«ll or lease Us plant to the city at a valuation to be fixed by a board of engineers and in the meantime to accept rates hasod on' t*ich value. It promptly repudiated the agreement when the time came to put It In effect. Moreover, the company has not ma<5e any further offer either to the Council or to this committee. OAKLAND, Nov. 14.— To learn the community's sentiment touching the various water supply projects that have been submitted to the special commit tee on municipal water plant, the com mittee has called for a postal card vote of citizens on two propositions— that of the Bay Cities Water Company, to cost Jp.700,000, and the development of an underground supply from the artesian belt in the Niles cone, to cost $3,500,000. The committee intends to be guided in its recommendation to the City Council by the returns from its postal card can vass. Voters are also requested to say whether they oppose municipal owner- In its statement to the public the mmmittee says: it Is expected that the canvass will be completed before Saturday. The com mittee is unanimous in its report to the public. pumping planta Installed, main pipe lines laid and reservoirs constructed for $1.50U.000. This, added to (2.000.000 for distributing system, makes a total estimated coet of $3,500,000, as against $5,750,000 that must bo expended on the Hay Cities proposition. It will, in the opinion of your committee, however, be worth more than the present Contra Cotta Water Company's plant. The most desirable feature of this under rround water supply U Its cheapness and the fact that It can be made to serve our pur :¦ 5i-s until such time as the growth of the city and the utilizing of mountain sources of supply will enable us to get, at reasonable cost, a still more abundant supply of this prime necessity of life. Any municipally owned water supply makes It necessary for the city to have a distributive system of its own. The expense for this must j>e Incurred, even though we should buy the Contra Costa Water Company** plant, as a large part of its dis tributive system will have to be renewed. The committee estlmateo. hut without having had complete engineering figures made, that the cost of the pipe line, pumping plant, reservoirs, and wells will not exceed $1. 500.000. It Trill require from one to two years to put this system In operation. OAKLAND, Nov. 14.— Miss Grace Jury, who last Fourth of July won the owners' driving race with her black pacer at Centerville, was married yes terday at her father's home at Mowrys Landing to S. T. Coram, whom she de feated in the i final heat for the honor of driving the fastest trotter in the countryside. Coram sought an intro duction to his fair competitor after he had lost the race and yesterday's event shows that he used the time to good purpose. The romance which began in the sulkies as they flew around the track at the celebration of the nation's natal day, is a sequel that has the indorse ment of the friends of the couple- Grace Jury is about twenty-four years of. age and a fearless horsewoman. She When a prize was offered for the fastest trotter driven by an owner tha entire sporting blood of "Washington Township was aroused and Miss Jury entered her pet. After an afternoon of heats at the close of a trying day of racing Miss Jury and S. T. Coram. overseer of the James Q. Fair ranch near Newark, were the two left to fight out the final best two out of three heats for the trophy. The big bay &riven by Coram was not equal to the speed or endurance of the little black, and when the day's racing was done Miss Jury was victor over them all. Coram ac cepted his defeat gracefully, but turned his defeat into victory by winning both victor and her steed. comes by her instinct naturally, as sho is a daughter of the blue grass region and since she was able to say "horse" has owned one.

"Gratitude alone prompts me to tes- tify to the cfHcacy of Pyramid Pile Cure. Last March I bought a dollar package at the drugstore, which cured me of bleeding piles, and I was a suf- ferer from them for eight years; but I had not been troubled with them since, until last September, when I gave birth to a baby girl, and after that I had a very severe case of protruding piles, which a trained nurse said was the woret case phe ever saw. and my doctor told me to firet Pyramid Pile Cure a Rain. which I did and was completely cured in three days. I have not had piles of sny kind since, and it is all owing to this wonderful remedy. My nurse took a box. which I was glad to be able to give her. for I know she will be able to help lots of suffering people whom I could never see or know. "I recommend 'Pyramids' wherever I know of any one suffering as I did. It gives me great pleasure to be able to say I am entirely cured, which my doc- tor says is true. I say God bless Pyra- mid Pile Cure." From a former great Fufferer. Mrs. F, S. Ancott, 1206 Unity street. Frankford. Philadelphia, Pa. This remedy, which is sold by drug 1 - Rists penerally. In fifty cent and dol- lar packages, Is in a suppository form, i« applied directly to the parts affected and performs Its work quietly and painlessly. , Its value is evidenced by the testimony given above, and we urge all sufferers to buy a package now and Cive it a trial to-night. Accept no sub- ultutes and remember that there is no remedy "Just as good."- A little book «m the Cause and Cure of Piles is pub- lished by the Pyramid Drug Co..
