It contained a' very valuable art collection and assortment of ; . bric-a brac, together with furnishings v that cost a fortune. Nearly the-entlre fit tings of the house were ". damaged more or less by either fire or water. ' The loss will run .Into .'the thousands, though It. is thought to be fully cov ered by insurance. ' Patrolman .Lantze saw. flames shoot ing from the roof of the mansion. He turned in an alarm, and when the dis trict chief arrived another was sent in. Tho firemen worked valiantly and suc-1 ceeded in keeping the flames from spreading to the adjoining mansions, though for a time it was feared many of them would be damaged. Three Japanese servants,' who were sleeping in the 'basement of the house, heard a sharp explosion just before the fire was discovered -by, Lantze. They, rushed out only to! find the mansion on flre. The Japanese could not throw any, light on the cause, but \u25a0 from the • fact that they heard the explosion it is sur mised that an accumulation of the deadly monoxide paused (the blaze. ; Fire broke out shortly after \u25a0 mid night this morning in the palatial resi dence of John F. Merrill at: the cornel of Van Ness avenue and .Washington street, and before the flames were ex tinguished the upper floor, of the mans ion was badly gutted.

The chair named Mr. Partridge, C. C. Morris and- Leon Samuels as the committee. After a recess of ten minutes the sub committee . reported . the following call providing for a convention of 399 dele gates to meet on September 19, 1905. and the full committee adopted it: Resolved, That we place upon our records tm 8 expression of our sorrow and feeble testi mony to the memory of our departed friend and leader, and that enshrined in the history of our civic and political itruggle for better government the name of Thomas Daniel Rior aan shall be ever recalled with love and gratitude as passing time shall more fully estimate his worth. '\u25a0\u25a0 . Resolved. That the Republican County Com mittee of the city and county of San Fran cisco, voicing the sentiment of all Republi can voters, as well 86 of all citizens of this community, deeply deplore the untimely tak ing off of Thomas Daniel Rlordan In the full ness oi his powers and the ripeness of his in tellect, and at a time of life when the vista before him was one of friendships, ' love and honor. \u25a0 ' ..»-.- less energy. A patriot who loved and wor shiped the American flag, who firmly, and "tanchly believed that it was ever safe under the guiding principles of the great Republi can party, Mas Thomas Daniel Hiordan. Many yearn will pass before the Republican party can replace this indefatigable worker and un selfish Uader both in local and .State affairs, liis achievements make his memory imper ishable, and it is the universal conviction among all citizens that not only has the city an <J county of San Francisco but the State or California sustained, an loss by the demise of its distinguished citizen, Thomas Daniel Riordan. Therefore, be it .C. D. Staples, former policeman, testi fied for the defense, to having arrested Wilson V Gray, father of Mrs. Adams' child, for disturbing the peace and said that when he searched' Gray he found an unloaded revolver in his pocket. "/' He later found several cartridges on the mantel shelf in the house occupied by, Gray and the defendant. It was then the defendant was called. She testified that Gray had threatened to blow her brains out and just before the ' police arrived she had taken the cartridges out of the revolver and placed them on the mantel shelf. Sergeant J.T. Dono van' also testified to having seen the furniture in the house of the defendant and Gray broken up. j Several character witnesses were called and they all testified that the defendant was kind to the boy. John H. Tyrrell, a brother of the defendant, testified that he was in the house on the night of March 12 and the defend ant was there all the. time till he went to bed at 9:30 o'clock. She never wore a cape of the kind described by Herlihy and Cox, he said,, and other relatives testified to the same effect. The defense will make the most ; of the discrepancy, 'for it wishes to show that it was not Mrs. Adams who bought theacid. If it can do so the charge that sho forced her- two-year-old boy to drink the poison and thus caused his death on -March 13. 1899. will be materially weakened. The prosecution rested Its case with Cox's testimony and Mrs. Adams was called to the stand for a few minutes by Judge Dibble to corroborate a state ment made by one of the witnesses. To-day she will give her entire version of the boy's death. : ";/' Oliver Thomas Cox, a gripman on the Geary-street road, yesterday ; corrobor ated the testimony of Police Corporal Herllhy, who said. he saw ' Mrs." Minnie Adams come from a drug store at Devisadero and Geary.- streets on .the night of March 12, 1899, and board a Geary-street car. Cox's testimony placed the time of her boarding the car at about seventeen minutes later than the time mentioned by Herlihy, v/ho said he reached the corner at exactly 8:35, saw the woman come from the store, tear the label off a bottle of car bolic acid she had purchased and then get on the car. all this taking from four to ten minutes. Cox says his car left Kearny street at 8:48 and that the running time to Devisadero street was fourteen minutes.
