L,lfe isn't all milk bottles and rat
tles to a baby refugee. That would be
the opinion — could he express it — of
Baby Fred Reimke, youngest of th«
house of Rcimke, refugees. He first
caw the light of day three months
ago In a tent in Golden Gate Park,
\u25a0where his mother was \u25a0without any aid
except That given by neighbors almost
as badly off as herself. It might have
hern a case for the powers that ad
minister relief to take action, but
these powers have a tendency to be
conspicuous by their absence when
they are most needed. Ever since the
day when he opened his eyes and ut
t«*r*d a wall as a signal to the world
that h*» war coming into. Baby Reimkc
has been the victim of scientific char
ity. He has been nourished by a
mother herself fed on the bounty of
the relief, said bounty usually taking
the form of soap, candle*;, matches and
other equally indigestible things deliv
ered by the KTOCCT as per orders from
the relief, and on tainted meat deliv
ered by the butcher by the same or
Baby is living with his parents and
seven sisters and brothers in cottage
405 of Camp 25, in the Richmond Dis
trict. There are cracks In the cottage
walls and roof wide enough to see the
sun and moon and all the stars through
them, and in these cold days, when
there is a coating of ice on the roof
in the morning, the airy construction
of relief cottages lias its disadvan
tages. Sometimes baby \u25a0wakes up in
the night and finds his crib full of
water, and his mothrr does not have
to fetch water for her washing, for
her tubs, standing on the kitchen floor,
rain full in a night.
Tt Is not because his mother has not
trifd to get aid that baby has to "com*
up" under these distressing condi
tions. In fact, he has spent a good
many hours sucking his rattle in the
house of some helpful neighbor, while
his mother has been besieging the re
lief. When he was Fix weeks old
he went \u25a0with his mother to the Relief
Society and had to wait five hours
in her arms before she got the encour
aging information that she might call
again. Mrs. Reimke explained that
she had eight small children, that her
husband was ill and could not work,
and that she herself was ill. but there
was nothing doing at the relief.
After waiting four weeks, \u25a0writing
various letters and making calls innu
merable, she was provided with some
furniture, which was vory well, but
was 'scarcely of any use in feeding
eight hungry little mouths or in keep
ing the icy winds of the refugee camps
from eight little bodies. When she
arked for food and clothing she re-
Vrived tho answer that $75 had already
been spent on her and that nothing
more was coming to her. It was a ras«j
of asking for broad and getting chairs.
Continual dripping weareth out 4
stone.. but apparently it does not wear
out the Relief Corporation, for Mrs.
Reirak* has tried it. She has written to
all the hea-ds of the relief administra
tion, but has received no answer. She
!ias been investigated within an inch
of her life, no Ices than four women
being sent to look into her case, but
nothing has come of it except the
aforesaid furniture, candles, soap and
tainted meat.
Meanwhile, bahy is sobbing in his
crib, drenched by the rain whirh comes

and indistinctly he knows what it

One of Tyro Hen Mlm Drove and Beat
Animal tm Death Will Staad
Jury Trial
The case? of Oliver McConnell and
August Schwarting, the two teamsters
who were arrested a week ago for
brutally killing a horse belonging to
the Clute Contracting Company, came
up yesterday before rolice Judge
Shortall. Schwarting, who claims that
he did not do any of the beating, but
simply sat on the seat and allowed Mc-
Connell to do It, pleaded guilty and
wag ordered to appear tomorrow morn
in;; for sentence. His companion, who
bad exhausted every means for obtain
ing delay, appeared In court will an
attorney and entered a plea of not
guilty, demanding a jury "trial. His
case went over for two days.
The offense of which the two defend
ants are accused was committed last
week, when an undersized team of
horses was compelled by its drivers to
pull a heavy load of lumber a consid
erable distance. In order to do this
the drivers found it necessary to get
out and beat each of the animals at
every etep. After going several blocks

With a mighty crash that threw sev
eral hundred passengers Into a wild
panic, a great log, picked up by the
paddlewhrei. burst through the upper
deck of the ferryboat Newark yester
day, tearing a • gaping hole between
peats filled with screaming women
and terrorized men. The accident,
without precedent in the annals of th«
local ferry service. occurred just
after the Newark had emerged from
the Oakland slip on the 4:30 o'clock
trip. Within twenty feet of the New
ark was the big ferry «teamer Pied
mont on her way into the slip, and the
reckless conduct of the captains of the
two vessels in permitting them to get
so olose to each other added to the
fright of the passengers, who believed
the boats had collided in.th* gale..
Farthest from, the- minds -of the gay
race track crowd that boarded the
Newark were thoughts of impending
disaster. True, the southeaster had
bfgun to whip the bay Into whltecaps,
but th» passengers .gave thla^ little
thought and crowded inio the cabins
and outer inclosed portion of the boat
to keep warm. The Newark, gained
good headway after leaving the slip.
the jingle of bells in the. engine room
told of a clear way ahead, and every
body frttlcd down for the trip across.
Suddenly the boat struck a great log
bow on, and as she careened from the
impact the passengers looked out and
there was the Piedmont, apparently
in the art of ramming the boat they
rode, but. quicker than thought, the
paddlewheel had reached the log sent
aside by the Newark's bow, picked it
up and hurled It through the deck
among the passengers.
"The Piedmont's smashed us," yelled
a passenger, and pandemonium reigned.
Men, women and children rushed across
the boat and she careened under the
unequally distributed weight. A quick
survey of the situation by some of the
rooler passengers showed that the
Piedmont was clear .and with encour
aging shouts they calmed the panic-
Ftrickcn. The instant the crash came
the engines of the Newark were shut
down. The engineers entered the pad
dlebox, removed, the obstructions, and
the boat proceeded on her way.
When off Goat Island the engines
of the Newark were slowed xJown to
permit the Bneinal, .lying out. await
ing a berth, to drift part. Convinced
that this meant .additional disaster,
the Newark's passengers again showed
signs of panic, but on being assured
that all was right they Rat down again.
They had a case of nerves all the way
across and it was with the elation
that comes .to survivors. \u25a0\u25a0 of . a. , ship

trtct Court of Appeal Hand Down
First Declnlon
According .to the opinion handed
down by the District Court of Appeal
yesterday in the case of the Union Sav
ings Bank of San Jose against Mau
rice Willard, a person holding stocks
in trust' for another must pay assess
ments, levied on the stock by the cor
poration issuing it.
The decision was the first to be is
sued by the new Justices. It was orig
inally prepared by Justice Ralph Har
rison, but was not filed before his term
expired. The new Judges satisfied
themselves that his conclusions were
correct. The defendant in the case,
Maurice Willard. held tbirty-flve shares
of stock of the bank in trust for Alfred
J. Willard and refused to pay the
assessment on it. The lower court de
cided against him, as did the appel
late court.

\lf expectations of members . of the
Merchants* Street Repair Association,
such as were expressed yesterday after
noon at a meeting of the organization
at the offices of the Merchants' Associa
tion In the .Midway. bnildlng, are real
ized, the repair of the neglected thor
oughfares of the Hty will have been
begun by next l«atnrday, prior to the
meeting. President Duffey of the
Board of Public Works was In con
ference with the executive committee
of the merchants' organization and
•aid be would clean the streets so that
the repair workers might work to ad
vantage. Vri \u25a0•\u25a0\u25a0>> »•'
' The merchants volnntcered financial
support to the proposed Improvements
and to solicit subscriptions. _
Those -who have interested them
selves in the rehabilitation of thecitys
cut-up thoroughfares have decided to
blaze a trail through one street at a
time. Fifth street looks to them about
as promising a lane for exploitation as
any. and in consequence, it is said,
from Townsend street west. Funds for
ttin work are to he raised as soon as
the strings to the mud-spattered mer
chant purses are unbound.
Puffey has guaranteed to supply all
of the basalt hlocks needed for street
improvement, together with sand and
gravel and also to transport this ma
terial. After conference with the city
official -yesterday morning, the mer
chants ascertained that the city would
put Howard street from East street to
Fifth in repair, also Market from Sec
ond street west and Kearny for its en
tire length. Beyond this the Board of
Works cannot assist.
It was decided to call the attention of
the United Railroads to the condition of
Eighth street and demand that, .the
company repair th* roadway between
Bryant and Townsend. The street, was
in excellent condition prior to Its up
heaval by the car company. The tracks
of the road^ have been -laid, .but the
basalt blocks between the tracks have
never been replaced. This; condition
applies to Haight street and many, other
neglected, half-flnished "improve
ments" of the Calhoun live-wire" sys
tem. . . . ;
ThR association has called the
financiers of the. city to their aid to
determine what steps can be taken
to make the city bonds salable. so that
the funds laid aside for the repair of
accepted streets will be available.

Domestic unhappiness, dinners Hi Bo
hemian restaurants- and the activities
of private detectives were features of
a large, mass of . testimony . introduced
yesterday in Judge Seawell's court In
a suit for maintenance brought by Mrs."
Addie E. Thompson against her ' aged
husband, James Thompson.'. The latter
is contesting her effort to secure £ fixed
allowance for her support and accuses
her of unfaithfulness and of taking' too
much interest in other and younger
men. S
Mrs. Thompson was formerly the
wife of Dr. G. A. -Whitney, and has.
two "She was married to
Thompson at San Rafael /on April 27,
1902, but for two years after thejr mar
riage they did. not make their home
together, although they, visited' : each
other often. Mrs. Thompson says that
her husband owns property in this
city which is .valued ; at approximately
$40,000 and has about $8000 in cash and
a large monthly income. Thompson
claims that the property Is worth, not
more than $30,000, and that his present
available cash consists of $35. He
makes his home at Redlands.
'Mrs. Thompson-, testified that'Thomp-
Fon had assaulted her on various occa
sions, "bad .^treated her 'unkindly,^ had
her ehadowed by private' detectives and
had finally forced \u25a0', her to leave' home
on August 9, 1 DOS. .Thompson denies
all - these things .and' says- that .the
separation was of Mrs. Thompson's
own -free will. He introduced testi
mony to show; that she had visited * the
races with, her, daughter., met; other
men at different places and -partaken
freely, of dinners at Italian and French
restaurants. He says, also T that, :\u25a0 his
wife never made, his. bed while *»they
were living together, and did not at
tend properly to her "household duties.

Congreßßlonal Delegation, to Induce
Government to Use Local Bnlld
lng Material in This State..-.
The" California Congressional, dele
gation is being urged to take steps to
have thei United States Government. use
California building materials in all
California buildings and all of ;. the
members, have signified thfrir willing
ness to promote this laudable move
ment. When the agitation began some
weeks ago the California Promotion
Committee took up the matter with the
delegation", and" has received .replies
from nearly all the members of : the
delegation. According to Senator; Perr
kins the entire , blame for: the use of
material from 'other . States . does not
rest with the v Government, but with
the men In California- who have the
materials .to sell. /Senator Perkins
' Such build In s« are proofed und«>r ' contract,'
and ' the contractors : select material* or rather
the places where a piren class of materials are
to be secured. \u25a0 This, of . oourse. depends » upon
the v bids of \u25a0 the \u25a0 producers, and if \u25a0 California
ouarrymen do not bid low enoug^. naturally the
material will be purchased or producers in other
States. The : matter.- therefore.-- seeras -to •be en
tirely in.the hands of. California' producers. - •
, : Senator t Flint 'puts another, light on
the ' sub jest in; his [ letter. ; and said, that
all material used in ; Government build
ings should -stand a prescribed test.l- He'
suggested- that all /persons having sand
stone, granite or: marble "accessible for
building purposes ;send • eamplesj to'^the
supervising /-architect.* of ; tho' Treasury
Pepartment,ywashington, : D. . C..V to be

LooisDabner, the partner of Siemsen
in the gasplpe murders, was examined
last night at the detention ward \u25a0 of
the Central Emergency Hospital . by r a
lunacy board appointed for. the purpose
by Judge, Carroll "Cook. - His. attor
neys-had Intimated -their intention- of
offering proof on Friday to the" effect
that Dahner had suffered from a gun
shot i wound some years ago and that
the bullet remained lodged in his head.
This evidence will be given for the pur
pose of establishing his insanity in an
attempt to- escape the penalty for ;his
crimes. •'.':>\u25a0."•
, Doctors D. D. Lustig, C C. "Wadswortttj
and F. W. Hatch of the State Insanity ;
Commission were appointed' and con<
ducted their examination of Dabner last
night In";a room 'in" the detention ward
to .which' the prisoner had been.: hrought
for the purpose. For some reason/the
doctors maintained an- air of deep mys
tery and excluded the newspaper repfe
senatives from their discussion, con
trary to the general custom. Dr. Lus
tig said in explanation that -it; had
been the express order of Judge Cook
that no information should be imparted
to/the public. ! . . \u25a0_\u25a0_ \u25a0'.' -.
."I gave no- such order," said ";?i|ie_
Judge later: in: the: evening. "In- view
of the proof that was to be offered
tending to establish Dabner's sanity, I
thought it best -to- have an:examina
tion made by. a board of disinterested
physicians, who were sent neither -by
the .District 'Attorney- nor in the. inter
est, of the defendant,- and- for this -rea
son I appointed this commission/which
will give its testimony in open court
jon Friday." .. .• .
Dr. "Wadsworth said that Dabner had
talked freely. with them, but^ intimated
that he ' had . shown shrewdness jin -ap
prehending the nature of the examina
tion and its'possible result.
"We have not' finished our .•work," he
said, "and at 'the present time I'have
come . to no conclusion. 1 ,It Is not.pos
sible to judge one man's acts by .what
another would do under like 'circum
stances. Each case has.to be consid
ered, with the purpose of. discovering if
the subject is acting in what is his
normal manner." .
