The officials of the Ocean Shore Rail
way Company appeared , before the Su
pervisors' Street Committee yesterday to
urge Immediate; action on its petition for
a fifty years' franchise to operate a rail
road in the 1 Sunset and Richmond dis
tricts to connect with the main line cenr
tering at- Army and Illinois, streets. As
there was no quorum- present no action
was taken, but . the officials were advised
to ' arrange a V conference with their" en
gineers and the - City Engineer for the
purpose of settling; upon the preliminary
street 'surveys ; and alignments on the
proposed route. ! The committee will con
sider the petition at next Wednesday's
meetiftg. The company has already ap
plied to the City Engineer for. a map of
the various official : street lines.
The committee postponed for one week
consideration of the offer of : the Mer
chants' Cold Storage and Ice Company
to furnish 1,000,000 gallons of salt water
daily for sprinkling -the^ public streets.
It; is planned to secure from the. United
Railroads- one or two; sprinkling cars after
the necessary pipe "connections are made.
Superintendent of Street Sweepers Cow
den requested the committee not to take
any money away from the street-sweep
ing fund for t be purpose. Cowden said
that the appropriation 1 of $215,000 -was
barely sufficient; ;to sweep the- streets
properly and that only twenty-five sweep
ers are at work this ; month. Supervisor
Boxton" "suggested that \the\ use of the
salt water would result in 1 a\ saving of
$500 monthly • now % paid to : the Spring
Valley Water* Company for fresh water.
In all likelihood . the offer will be ac
cepted. -- Tirey L. Ford informed the com
mittee" that the United Railroads uses
sprinkling cars on the San Mateo road
at* present and has no other cars for the
purpose. «i:
An opinion of Importance to material
men, contractors and mechanics.' was
handed down yesterday by Judge Seawell
in the suit of Jocelyn against Arnold, lr£
volving the question of lien growing out
of . the abandonment by Williams Bros.,
contractors, of work on the home of
Robert Oxnard on Broadway, near Bu
chanan street. Judge Seawell goes fully
Into the lien law of the State and con
cludes with the opinion that section 1200
of the Code of Civil Procedure is uncon
stitutional.
At the time of the abandonment of the
work by Williams Bros., Mr. Oxnard had
paid 53130, 0n the total contract price.
$16,270. Immediately;, thereafter Hens
against the building were filed, aggregat
ing in all $10,000. ; Mr. Oxnard then fin
ished the building, depositing with tne
court 51566 15, the difference between the
actual. cost "and the contract price. The
case then went to trial. .
The* code section Judge Seawell holds
unconstitutional provides that when a
contractor fails to complete or abandons
his contract .before completion, the por
tion of the contract price applicable to
the liens of others than the contractor
shall be fixed by deducting from the value
of tho work done and materials delivered
on the ground; the. sum of money paid
and. actually due at- the time of aban
donment—the materials on the- ground
thenceforth', to .be- the property of .'the
owner.M. '...' , !
Tho court holds that the contentions of
•Mr. Oxnard should be sustained, and in
passing upon section 1200 asserts that Its
language Is uncertain an%T difficult to In
terpret; that" an 'abandoned, uncompleted
building is not worth Its proportion of the
total contract price: that the owner
should not be obliged to accept the mate
rials delivered on the ground, and,
finally, that the sum to which the mate
rial men and mechanics should be limited
is.lo be obtained by deducting the reas
onable cost of tne building from the con
tract price, the* owner having the . privi
lege " of completing the building himself.
The : theory of ' this _is that the owner
should not be called , upon to pay more
than the i original contract price for his
building. . - u ? i^« ifjjßffiggHßg
• Under this decision the court held tliat
Hen-holders were limited In their recovery
to the fund of $1865 13 deposited :In court
by Mr. Oxnard.

"He doesn't know how to earn an
honest livelihood and wouldn't earn it if
he did know how," was the estimate of
John Warned's character tendered by
the patrolman who had arrested him
for "stealing a sack of sugar from the
wholesale grocery of Wellman, Peck &
Co. on' East street, between Pacific and
Jackson, last Tuesday afternoon. .
But the .accusation of theft was
sturdily combated by Mr. Warned.
While sauntering past the grocery, he
informed Police Judge Conlan, a
stranger accosted him with an offer to
bet 50 cents that he, Mr. W., could not
lift and carry a sack of sugar which
lay upon the sidewalk. > Proud of ' his
muscular strength, Mr. Warned prompt
ly accepted the wager and was in pro
cess of winning it with ease when two
clerks from the grocery compassed his
arrest on the charge of stealing, his
burden. "It was a most absurd blunder
on their part," he declared.
"Who held the stakes?" inquired his
Honor. ':%\u25a0;• '
"The man who proposed the bet,".re
plied Mr. Warned.- .
"What became of him?".
"I'll give It up."
'Twas then the policeman put in his
estimate of Mr. Warned's character
and supplemented it with the statement
that he had "kept track" of the man
for- several years- and was therefore
qualified to know whereof he testified.
"That bet story Is rot," he concluded.
"I think so, too," said the Judge, x
Mr. Warned will be sentenced to-day
for petty larceny. .
George O'Brien, who was shot by
Samuel Cohen because he would not
pay $500 in return for his alleged
alienation of Mrs. Cohen's affections,
Informed Judge Mogan that he did not
desire to file formal complaint against
his assailant. / ; ;V^ > *; V
"Why?" the Judge asked.
"Well, because — because— my mother
Is sick," was the stammering answer.
"And you want to -be constantly by
her side, I suppose?" said his Honor,
dryly. ; S?-*:f
' "Yes, sir." .
"Well, we'll take and transcribe your
testimony right now and thus obviate
the necessity of your coming here
again," was the unexpected proposal.
But still Mr. .O'Brien balked. Then
the -Judge sent for Detective. Ross
Whittaker, who had , worked up the
case, and requested him to swear to a
complaint, but Mr. Whittaker. also de
clined, to "do so, his stated reason be
ing that other police o/flcers knew more
about the shooting than he did. The
Judge thereupon ordered that subpenas
be Issued to Patrolmen Mitchell. Cor
nelius and Hostetter and that Mr.
O'Brien be detained in custody as a wit
ness until the desired complaint be
filed. To this ruling Mr. O'Brien en
tered demurrer, but the Judge stood
firm and declared that the case would
not be "fixed" -if . he could prevent.it.
Mr. O'Brien's' obstinacy n^elted ere he
was jn custody half an hour/ He sub
scribed to the complaint and was re
leased,- and then -the case was set for
hearing to-day.
Cohen Is at liberty on $2500 bail. His
shooting of O'Brien, who is a build
ing contractor, occurred one evening
about six weeks ago at Golden Gate
and Van Ness avenues. Three bullets
were pumpedinto O'Brien's body from
a 22-caliber revolver, and to the small
caliber of the weapon he owes his life.
As It was, he spent several weeks In a
hospital, where he stated that Cohen,
after accusing him of paying undue at
tentions to Mrs. Cohen, demanded $500
as balm for his wounded marital honor,
and' began shooting when his demand
was rejected.
J. Walter Laymance forfeited the
$200 which he Lad deposited as security
for hii appearance before Judge Caban-
Iss for examination on the charge of
having instigated the plucking of a
peacock's tall . lv Golden Gate Park in
order 'to prov.lde Mls's' Lillian Winters,

complaint- which, cost -that gentleman

in the fight' Attorney George D. Collins
Is making against prosecution on t'ne
charge of bigamy. The over-married law

applied for a writ 'of habeas corpus on
the ground that his client was unlaw.
fully restrained of his liberty in contra

committed "bigamy, fbe offense was com

Jurisdiction rot the 'courts of California!

\u25a0writ and refused the request, for' right
to appeal -to the United States Supreme

At noon Collins appeared before Judge

Proceedings in contempt , against the
San Francisco Labor Council and the va
rious unions of brewery workers, against
whom citation was issued upon affidavit
of the Seattle Malting and Brewing
Company, was continued yesterday by.
Judge Murasky until; this morning for
hearing. \u0084The respondents were present
with their attorney, but the court ' de
cided "to first" dispose of the petition for
Injunction against ; the ; Cooks' and the
.Waiters' unions , filed iby A;: J. . Kasta,
owner of a restaurant "at 21 Sixth street.
On behalf of the petitioners It was ad
mitted that the cooks and - the waiters
had the right 'to quit work if they so
desired and to make a condition upon
which they would remain at work that
they, be not required to work with non
union men, but there their rights ended
and they committed a breach of the law
the moment tuey instituted boycotts,
placed pickets and endeavored to harass
and intimidate j the employers. '
The claim was made on behalf of the
defendant unions that they had only
used peaceful -means in an effort to at
tain, their end, but this claim was met
by counter affidavits of the . employer.
Upon this joinder of issues the argument
proceeded. T. C. \an Ness, who repre
sents the plaintiff and who, is associated
with Aitorney Bush : Finnell ln^ the pre
sentation of the petitions for similar re
lief filed, by a score of employers, first ad
dressed the court. \u25a0. \u25a0
FOLLOW' ENGLISH CASE.
"The courts of America," said Mr. Van
Ness, "ere now advancing in cases in
volving the questions here raised along
the lines of ti.e rule laid down -n Eng
land's highest court. The iirst case that
reached that court included . the question
of the right of^employes to cease' their
labor, in a body, to /strike ,' as it Is com
monly called. In that case the men had
quit their employment owing to; the. fact
that non-union men were given work ; be
side them.' As they were persistent in
their stand that -.they would . not i return
until . the non-union men were discharged
the employers were finally forced to ' dis
charge the non-union men, the services
of the union men being the more valuable.
The discharged employes, carried the case
to the courts and upon this action the
opinion of the higher court was founded.
'.'The court held. that employes had the
right at any and all times to quit their
wor^kand walk -out ..in a body and . that
they ; also had the right to say upon what
conditions they would remain in the em
ploy of any person ; or firm; their right
to even demand that non-union men be
discharged as a condition upon which
they would remain at their work not
being questioned. In other words, em
ployes, held the court, could place; any
condition they desired upon their posi
tions, and had the, right to quit their
work if the conditions so imposed were
not honored in every way "by the em
ployers. *
CO BEYOND RIGHTS;
"Emboldened by this decision of the
highest court of their land the English
union members went ; further and 'finally,
when their demands as -to.' the. discharge
of non-union men and higher wages and
shorter hours' were not granted, they
proceeded with the; boycott, placed pick
ets-and sought to intimidate to -attain
their, ends.; This ""case '.was carried to. the
upper court and here came the decision
upon which the' courts of 'America now
base theirs. .
"This decision was to the effect that
ev«n though it were true that,, employes
had the right* to name: any conditions
they^, desired; to even demand .the dis
charge of. non-unionvmen under threat
of. a walkout, their rights ; ended ,in
event tlfelr demand, was denied ; when
they exercised their: right to; walk out.
After walking out they had j done all
they . could legally do" and the court
firmly held that they had' no 'right! to
boycott,, to picket or to; intimidate; -.they
might walk out .as -. they pleasedf but
there their lfgal right; to injure ended.
"This is- the theory upon which we are
proceeding in this case*," continued Mr.
Van Ness. "We do ; not for a" moment
question the right: of the cooks aiid f the
waiters to quit their employment -at any
time or for any reason they please.
After they ' have quit, however.,' we hold
that there their; rights; end and , that in
boycotting/ picketing "and Intimidating
others who have; taken .their place we
hold they violate the la w^ and should be
forever enjoined , from . pursuing such
tactics." . : , \u25a0 '' \u0084" . . ..'.'\u25a0
MARBLE OUTLINES STAND.
; Attorney Marblo f - who represents the
unions, said that while ; lt- was true that
pickets had been stationed tin : front; of
tho*! restaurant ' of the =">. petitioner.:, and
others they had! committed no overt acts
and had conducted themselves ; In ; a quiet,
peaceful manner. \u25a0 « ' . \u25a0 '
"Picketing^ If 'quietly -carried on, can
not ba declared a nuisance," said Marble.'
"It cannot be declared a nuisance because
people are stationed on the sidewalk, be-;
causo It is a presumption of. law. and Is a
fact.' capable ;qf j proof ; ; that' people":* are
standing t and . passing -.up - and '•' down J In
front of restaurants on the public .streets
at all hours.". ,', ' '. " . -. •
/But you will condede, "will you not,"
asked Attorney .'Van' 1 Ness/ '-'that -people
cannot combine^ to injure a person's
business?!' "
"What;- we ; concede,".^ answered ,; Mar
ble, "is that : labor unions £ have "-no
right ; to *: combine S to "\u25a0* exercise '.-.- unlawful
acts , against .the ; proprietors f of : ; places » of
busln«ss^7.We J hold .that 'in the 'case at bar
the i defendants >';.were~j notY exercising ; un
lawful acts, but " were C fully ' within ' the
spiritVof i the: letter Vof Uhe'i law. V> ;
v "It; seems -to jme,"', answered Van Ness,
"that ' the ' answer 'consists alone : of words ; :
itiis .not* argument." .',".-' .-*
This .concluded- the \l discussion and the
case was taken \u25a0 under 'advisement. J
