Mr. Merrill and his family are at
present traveling in Europe. The
house was in charge of a butler, who'
was absent last night ' on , a visit with
relatives. The mansion contained none
save the . two : Japanese, who retired
early in the eveninsr. v \u25a0 M
James and Ralph Merrill, sons of the
owner of the house, said they visited
the place shortly after *8- o'clock last
evening: and that everything ,wa« in
perfect order at that time. / They esti
mate the loss at $50.000. ;;\u25a0•'
The Merrill home was one of most
beautiful of the older residences of the
city. 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 Merrills are
away in Europe and the house was inj
charge of servants. The flre started. in
a dumb waiter on the third . floor and
is supposed to \u25a0 have been caused by an
explosion of gas.

XOMIXATIOX OP TICKET.
On motion of John S. Partridge, the
chair appointed a committee of three to
draft the usual petition for a place on the
ballot, and to submit in proper form a
cali for a nominating convention. 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.
