Cry of "Man in the House"
Excites Women's Hotel
"Man overboard!" has often caused
Intense excitement, but never anything
like what the cry of "Man in the
house!" created at 3 a. m. yesterday
morning in the exclusive women's hotel
at Turk and Laguna streets.
Miss Mitchell, a tall, slender, golden
haired ' young lady, who makes her
money in the Mint, discovered .the sac
rilegious intruder. Waking suddenly,
she saw in the dim light a giant in
her room. Being a new woman, she
didn't scream — not just then. Instead
she addressed the dreadful visitor po
litely. "You've made a mistake," she
said. "You're looking for the cashier
of course. She's in the next room."
The giant lumbered out into the hall.
Miss Mitchell could contain herself no
longer. She had to scream. Dashing
to the door, she shrieked an alarm
down the hallway. "Man In the house!"
As the giant pressed the stairs with
elephantine tread outer windows flew
up in all quarters of the building, and
a dozen soprano voices cried, "Man
in the house!" The. gallant Japanese
servant heard it, ran bravely to the
front door, found it locked and did
The giant, like Goosey. Goosey, Gan
dfcr. "wandered upstairs, downstairs,"
but kindly kept out of my lady's cham
ber. "Man In the house!" sang the so
pranos from the outer windows. They
were keeping perfect time. "Once
more." cried a passing chauffeur. "Man
in the house!" sang the ladies obliging
ly. A basso policeman appeared on the
scene. "What about it?" he bawled.
The chorus ceased. One of the la
dies hysterically explained their pre
dicament The policeman tried to get
in, but couldn't. The chorus sang
the same old song. Finally ....e nat

ese enabled him to solve the mystery
of a spring lock and the door flew
open. The policeman found an un
usually tall man leaning heavily
against a balustrade and led him out.
"Thank you! Thank you!" sang the
sopranos. The windows went down.
All was quiet In the women's hotel, but
the troubles of the policeman were
just beginning. "Who shez I'm indict
ed?" Inquired, the giant, resting his
weight on his captor.
"Easy there, partner," warned the
policeman. "I've an egg in every
pocket. "You'll be indicted if you don't
stop doing these funny falls."
"I'm Fred-ed-frederal Morn. That's
who — I am," said the giant, bending
half way over.
The policeman tugged and pulled and
longed for a derrick. At last the
giant was righted.
"Can you navigate If I give you a
start?" asked the policeman.
"Just watch me," mumbled the giant
Tfie policeman gave him- the promised
start and he shot ahead like a battle
ship leaving the ways. Once in deep
mud he seemed to \u25a0. founder, - but the
steam In his coppers held out, and, de
spite a heavy' list, he managed to
round the corner and strike clear sail-
Ing for the water front. V ,
An Investigation was in progress yes
terday In the. women's hotel. Either
the Chinese cook or the Japanese
boy, the only two males in the house,
left the door ajar, and the stranger,
who was seven, eight or nine feet tall
— it depends on which. one of the ladies
you ask — wandered In. If lt devel
ops that the Japanese offended he will
be discharged, and, say the ladies, not
even a special message from Presi
dent Roosevelt will gain him rein
Kltio Uchlto, a Japanese foreman of
a fishing crew which operates in Alas
ka, was seriously Injured last evening
in a quarrel in which .members of a
secret Oriental society, resembling
those of Chinese highbinders, were in
volved. Even with* the possibility of
death upon him, Uchito maintained a
dogged silence as to the nature of
the encounter or the identity of the
men who attacked him. I. Tanika was
arrested by the police, but he denies
that he was in any way connected with
the disturbance.
Uchito. with members of the secret
society, was standing on Sutter street,
between Octavla and Laguna, discuss
ing some matter of deep concern to
the organization, when a difference of
opinion arose and the discussion took
on the nature of a wrangle. Suddenly
two pistols and a big knife flashed
Into view. A lively scrimmage fol
lowed, in which three shots were fired.
The crowd of Orientals fled, but Uchito
remained prostrate on the sidewalk.
He was taken to the Japanese hospital
on Laguna' street near Pine, where 't
was found that he was suffering from
a superficial fracture of the skull and
a severe; wound on the back . of. : the
head, apparently made with a knife.
Policeman George Mengola gave
chase to the fleeing Orientals. Some
rushed Into a house on Laguna. street
and Mengola followed and pulled out
