Demented Chinese Eesorts
to Fire Route and Life Is
Saved by Parting of Queue
Wong Lung, a Chinaman living at 903
Dupont street, last evening attempted to
burn himself alive by placing his head
over a lighted gas jet and kindling a
lire of shavings under his -feet. Lung is
undoubtedly crazy and this is the second
time he lias attempted self-destruction
by the fire route. He was discovered by
his uncle, Fook You, .who had a desperate
fight to prevent the destruction of life
planned by the incapacitated Celestial
It is but three weeks since Wong Lung
vras sent to the Detention Hospital for
insanity after having attempted death
by the same manner he sought last night.
All of the unfortunate heathen's hair is
bunted off the top of his head and the
once cherished queue is but a burned
and charred relic. But Lung- wots not.
His one desire since his gray matter
ceased working is to join his fellows in
the happy land where life is one long
fcmoke of the poppy extract.
As Lung twisted his queue arouqd the
gas pipe he tied a sailor's knot about the
Iron tube, struck a match and awaited
developments. When the hot flames be
gan to scar his face and head he uttered
an uncouth yell that reverberated
throughout the narrow alleys of the yel
lcw quarter and spent its force on the
car drums of a thousand terrified Chinese.
Lung's 4-year-old boy ran into the room
and clapped its little long nailed fingers
in- baby glee at the sight of papa Lung's
pyrotechnic queue.
Swarms of chattering Chinamen gath
ered about the hou?e. while others sought
cover in rat holes arid on roofs to escape
the stray .bulJrts cf what they divined
was the outoreak of another bloody tong
\u25a0war. Special Policeman William King
tore into the house with drawn revolver.
As he crossed the threshold Lung's queue
parted with a rasping sound and "the in
fane Chinaman fell groaning to the floor.
Dr. Kur Him was summoned and when
he finished swathing Lung with walrus
tooth oil and other peculiar dark-looking
infusions, the injured man was taken to
the Central Emergency Hospital, where
the white doctors took a hand in the
treatment, soothed the burns and lodged
Lung in a padded cell. His uncle. Fook
You. cays that he will swear to a com
pjaisit of insanity and hopes to have his
fire-loving relative transferred to a place
where people do not play with matches
or secure -means' for self-destruction.
Keeping' boarders is often the begin

Rudolph Valrnzuela was arrested yes
terday morning near Golden Gale ave
nue and Larkin street with a bundle of
stolon newspapers under his arm. Most
of the papers were Calls. Subscribers
living in that district have complained
for soni«» time that their papers had

Chief Surgeon of Emergency
Service Consults With
Dr. Ward and Physicians
Chief Surgeon J. I. Stephen, of the
Emergency service, is still 'seeking to
compass his desire to eject the news
paper men permanently from the city hos
pitals. Using the words of the chief, the
newspaper men "see too much and know
too much for the good of the service."
During the last week Dr. Stephen, who
has been the prolific subject for many
newspaper stories, has been conducting a
general consultation bee. Each surgeon in
the service hag been asked to offer, his
opinion as to the restriction of the re
Dr. Ward, president of the Health
Board, is said by Stephen to stand "heart
and hand" with the elusive doctor's pro
position of excluslveness. If Stephen, wno
Hays he already has the backing of the
Board of Health, can get the co-operation
of Mayor Schmitz and Abe Ruef. the day
will soon come when he can run the
Emergency Service in his peculiar man
ner without fear of exposure 'in the
. Mayor Schmitz has already said that
he does not coincide with Stephen's views,
and under no circumstances will he allow
the taking of any such action as is con
templated by Stephen ar.d his "support"
in the Health Board. Although Stephen's
"support" in the Health Board is be
lieved to consist only of Dr. Jules Simon,
proprietor of the Maudsley Sanitarium,
Stephen says he has the co-operation of
the entire, board, with the Mayor and
Ruef included.
Not one of the surgeons who do the
work in the Emergency Service listened
favorably to the chiefs proposed plan
of secrecy, and none would commit him
self in the -slightest degree In favor of
such a move. One of the physicians in
the service said that Dr. Stephen had
instructed two nurses at the Central
Emergency Hospital, and one of the stu
dent nurses to "look after his interests"
and learn, if possible, just where the
newspaper men got their information re
garding him. The chiefs action in employ
ing spyfhg nurses is disliked and severely
censured by the rest of the attaches
about the hospitals. The nurses' who are
assisting In the drawing up of the chief's
code of. procedure to exclude the press,
are shunned as vipers by the doctors and
other attaches.
Ever since the night when two people
died, probably because the chief eurgeon
could not be /ound In the city. Stephen
has spent little time at the hospitals. His
orders are given in whispers to the head
nurse, Mrs. Cannon, who diffuses them
throughout the service. >.
Drs. Ward and Stephen, according to
the chief, held a long consultation on the
restriction bill Friday night, which Dr.
Stephen reports as having been very fav
orable to the ridding of the service of
the presence of newspaper men.

Assault on Grocer
, Gook Garef ully
' .Planned.
Pieces of Lead Pipe
Used in Crime
OAKLAND. July 23.— Further investiga
tion of the assault on and, robbery of
Thomas \V. Cook of 1805 Fruitvale avenue
last night shows that it was one of the
most diabolical attempts at murder ever
perpetrated in Alameda County. The vic
tim, a portion of whose skull was
crushed. in by blows rained upon him by
the thugs, is lying unconscious at a sani
tarium in' Alameda, and death may. oc
j^ur at any moment.
w Sheriff JJarnett to-day took into cus
tody James Crowhurst, a clerk at 1192
East Twenty-first.. street, -and- is holding
him in the County Jail under suspicion
pf knowing- the perpetrators of the as
sault and robbery.. The Sheriff then went
to. San Francisco, where he had reason
to believe that the murderous ruffians
had fled. . Crowhurst protests that he
knows nothing of the affair. < .
Only for a brief moment since, he was
struck down by the men who beat him
into insensibility and robbed him has Cook
recovered sufficiently to say a few" words.
The robbers did their worklwith pieces of
lead pipe wrapped in clot:i, tied on with
stout cord. Last night one piece of pipe,
Si inches long, was found near the scene
of. the robbery. To^iay men employed by
Sheriff Frank Barnett found a similar
lilece of lead pipe, evidently a section- of
the other, and wrapped up precisely as
the first piece was, in a vacant lot within
Two hundred feet of the Cook home on
Fruitvale avenue.
Both pieces of pipe were covered with
blood stains, , the cloth otherwise being
white and clean, showing that they were
prepared specially for the dastardly deed
which was carried intu execution. It
is evident that the robbers had planned
exactly when and where to attack their
The victim •of the cruel crime is 20
years old. In the absence of Fred. B.
Cook, his brother, who is visiting in Can
ada, he has been In. charge of their'gro
cery at - 12S8 Twenty-third a.venue.
It has- been, his custom on Saturday
Rights'- to take all the week's receipts of
cash home in his pockets rather than
risk leaving it over Sunday in the store
safe. Evidently the robbers knew of this
practice. Young Cook has been im
mensely popular among his acquaint
ances, and he. became imbued with the
idea that nobody in the world would
do him any harm.
Last night he closed the store about 9
o'clock, placed $200 in gold and $50 in sil :
ver coin in his pockets, and started to
ro to his home on Fruitvale avenue, half
a niilG froni the store.
Along the highway known as the old
Redwood road the sidewalks are uneven,
trees at intervals cast shadows, lights are
few and it is altogether an ideal place,for
holdup men. ' But the thugs who beat
down young . Cook took no . chances of
detection. 'Jnjey attacked h:m from both
In front and behind. With pieces of
lead pipe as bludgeons they smashed in
his skull, struck him down within a
block of his home, robbed him and left
him, as they thought, deaa.
Dr. J. H. Callen, who has had charge
of young Cook's case, said to-night:
"Cook began to so into convulsions this
morning, and I had him taken to the Ala
meda ' Sanitarium, where an operation
v-as performed this afternoon by Dra.
Lum. Crosby and myself. We re
moved the clot that was upon the brain,
but the fracture of the skull is very bad,
and the chances for his recovery are
slight. There must have been several
blow 3 rained upon his head, and ; the
thieves must- have beaten him terribly.
There. is one great fracture across the
top of the head, and the skull is splin
tered and shattered around where the
blows centered. The thieves were evi
denfly not satisfied with one blow, but
beat him on the head in a horrible man

Policeman . Takes Harry
LloycUto Hospital. Prob-~
; ably Tod Late.
Harry Lloyd, an aged man, was found
in a condition of acute starvation by
Policeman Bruce atthe corner of Tenth
and Mission r streets last night and
taken to the Central Emergency Hos
pital. At the hospital Dr. Herzog
found that Lloyd was suffering from a
general emaciation, induced by starva
tion. Lloyds chances for; recovery are
considered slim.. - .
At the hospital, the old man told a
pitiful tale of. sickness and starvation.
He said that 'for days he had wandered
the streets of the city-sick, unable to
procure work. All that he had to fill
his stomach was a few bits of bread
that he -begged at the kitchens of
restaurants. He slept in the gutters,
and sometimes .when passing pedes
trians were goodrhearted he managed
to get 5 or 10 cents, with which he
bought a. bed for the. night in one of
the cheap* lodging-: houses -that" abound
down by th<T Barbary Coast. Lloyd is
afflicted with heart trouble and his long
stage of starvation has , so , run him
down that he has reached the critical
period where life is but a question of
hours. V \u25a0'-* A -
Every care was extended tne suffer
ing man and under the motherly hand
of Mrs. Swett. the matron.' he was made
more comfortable than he had been
perhaps since he left his mother's care.
Tears came to tho unfortunate mans
eyes when the nurse .with soothing
hands smoothed out his pillow and gave
him food and drink. -. If Lloyd recovers
he will-be scnt^ to the' Almsnouse. .
John Tait will relinquish the manage
ment of Taifs cafe "on August 1. He
and his assistant. Gustav Mann, will en
ter into partnership with the owner of
a cafe in the. Emma Spreckels building,
on Market street.. Thecafg is tobe con
ducted on anambitlous scale. Mann has
already turned in his resignation.
: It is asserted that this action does not
mean that there has , been any friction
in the 'management of Tait's. Mann and
Tait believe that they can do as well; if
not better, in their new place as they
have done '.for -the of the Flood
