With Criminal
OAKLAND. June 21. — Foster M. Mar
tin, son of E. T. Foster, a well

the ; hands of a burglar who entered
Martin's home at 1376 Webster street
rarly this morning, a bullet fired by
the robber passing within an inch of
Martin's head and burying itself in the
headboard of the bed. Martin was
aroused by the opening of a door be
tween his room and the front hall of
his home, and opened his eyes, to be
confronted by a masked negro, who" a
moment before had entered the window
<•>? his room, which faced the front of
the house.
Martin reached out from where he
lay in bed and secured a revolver from
a dresser near by. He then asked the
liurglar what he wanted in the house.
The intruder made no answer, but
-vheeled. and "covered the book maker
\u25a0with a revolver, at the same time back
ing- toward the open window. Martin
feared to fire on the negro lest he
should merely wound him and in return
receive a fatal shot himself, so he did
not attempt to Ptop the burglar as the
latter slipped through the open window.
As he dropped to the ground the re
treating man made a desperate attempt
to murder Martin, firing a shot at him
ns he lay in bed< The bullet passed
within an inch of Martin's head and
lodged In the headboard of the bed.
Martin returned the fire, sending two
bullets after the burglar, but the man
dropped from the window as he shot
and both the bullets fired by Martin
missed the burglar. The murderous
bouse breaker ran around the house
to <he rear, and. f limbing over a fence.
p.=c*ped in the direction of Harrison
street. \u25a0: : i- v "\u25a0\u25a0}.-
Martin called the police. They
searched every yard and possible place
of concealment In the neighborhood, but
no trace of the house breaker was
found. Martin described the negro as
being of medium height, rather heavy
and wearing a mask. A flower bed
and lawn in front of the house plainly
showed evidence of the man having
< limbed into the window. Prints o£
h:s heels were found where he had
jumped to the ground after firing at
Martin.

SAN RAFAEL GIRL SAYS
THAT MAN STRUCK HER
Accuses Racing Book Maker
of Attacking- Her in
Fight Over Dog
| SAX RAFAEL. June 21. — Frank Hall
I and John Cella. the 1 former a book
[baker and poolroom celebrity and the
j latter his trusted lieutenant, were made
j the principals In a serious charge which
I pretty Miss Lillie .Larape of this city
| lodged with District Attorney Boyd to
| day. She accused Hall of attacking
j her, and exhibited a discolored hand
and a scratched face as evidence. Sh©
\u25a0 declared that Cella had assisted Hall In
; the assault upon her. . /
Miss Lampe .and her mother and sls
i ter visited the district attorney and set
j forth that the trouble began with the
j time of the earthquake and ended last
I Wednesday evening, when, she says, in
I an effort to rescue her* pet dog from
j the hands of the two poolroom men who
'were attempting to capture it she re
| ceived the Injuries at the hands of Hall.
Since the earthquake, the Lampe fam
ily, consisting- of the mother and, r two
daughters, have lived in the; lower flat
of a bouse .the. remainder, of which is
occupied by Hall and Cella and their
relatives. Difficulties have arisen be
tween the two families from time to
time, the latest trouble being over a
small house dbg belonging: to the fam
ily in the lower flat. Hall, said Miss
Lampe, had threatened to kill the dog
several times, and on last "Wednesday
prepared to carry out his^ threat. -Miss
Lillie interfered -and grasped the rope
with which Hall had lassoed the anl-.
mal. Hall, she claims, then gave her
arm a twist and followed up this act
, with a slap on her. face. ' When J. E.
Anderson, a visitor at the Lampe home,
attempted to Interfere Cella sent him
: sprawling to the ground with a olow
' from his first. The appearance at this
I time of Mrs. Lampe, armed with a re
! volver, caused Hall and Cella to fleo
and put an end to hostilities.
Since the encounter the Lampes have
vacated the house and have obtained
another home. Miss Lampe said that
she would swear out warrants tomor
row for the arrest of Hall .and Cella.
District Attorney Boyd says that he in
tends to prosecute the men vigorously.

OAKLAND, June 21.— Expenses in
curred by a fiancee "during the period
immediately ' preceding nuptials, pro
vided the expenses have a direct bear-
Ing on that^vent, can be collected later
from the husband r according to a de
cision given by Justice of the 1 Peace
Quinn today. The decision was givelj in
a suit for $42.80 brought .by ::. Kahn
Brothers against" Alfred .Weber, '~ his
wife, Mrs. Georpie Wheeler "Weber, and
against her mother, Mrs. S. H. Bothsow,
for a part of a trosseau purchased by
Mrs. Weber . last August and which

OAKLAND, June" 21." — Upon ! the de*r
cision whether a theft committed at

guilty to'.tiie' theft of .carpenters* tools
from a building in Berkeley, but es
tablished the fact that tho theft /was
committed before dark. The statutes

VJT dl LCI \u25a0\u25a0- \u25a0
• BERKELEY, June 21.— Bishop Wil :
Ham M. Bell of the Brethren
church makes it a point. to pay his poll
tax promptly and without demur, but
when the poll tax: man gets him twice;
in one season he becomes abit.-in-^
dignant. Thus it was that the offlos
of ; Deputy Assessor A. G. Clarke today
received a' visit from the -prelate^ who"
desired to; lodge-' a ; complaint -^that his
poll tax had been -collected 'twice', yils
year, and also to prefer a request 'for.
the return of part of the, money. : : 'He
was denied the money, • and- in ilio
strenuous t melee - that -followed .'.with
Peputy Clarke was threatened; .with
bodily removal from the place,'.; the
threat being emphasized by "Deputy
Clarke with a chair, brandished high in
the air." The good bishop, a man of
peace and abominating a brawl, pre
pared to quietly leave the premises. "
j Before '.betaking/, himself i' from T the
place, liowever. Bishop Bell- informed
IVlajor Clarke that he apparently be
longed to the genus grafter, and that
the $2 overcharge " possibly ' ; *had found
its M r ay into Clarke's own pockets.
Then the storm broke anew. Major
Clarke raged and fumed and swore,
denouncing the dignifieU bishop! as a
prevaricator, and as one. who knew not
whereof he spoke. The air became sul
phurous, but Bishop Bell calmly, sfood
his ground until the storm cleared away
a bit. Then he explained that he had
not wished to be taken seriously when
he spoke of "grafting," .'{his word hav
ing been used, in a jocular way, with
none but pleasant feelings inspiring the
phrase. The bishop's explanation did
not palliate Clarke. He heaped impre
cations upon the minister. . and then
Bishop' Bell quietly departed. .
" George Drum, an assistant of Clarke
in the office/ had prepared to telephone
for the police during the row, but the
minister left before such intervention
was necessary. Bishop Bell, who lives
at 2014 Cedar street,;said tonight: , ;
I hare been before the public for 25 years,
and this in tho first time that anything approach
ing the proportion of a squabble has c-ouie into
my life. I went to the deputy assessor to secure
the return of $2, my poll tax haTins been col
lected twice this year, oiiue through the medium'
of a cheek, which 1 showed its. Clarke, and
once through my wife, during mj- absence from
borne. Mr. Clarke, refused to refund the money,
apparently Jsnorlng the receipts I presented to
prore.that I told the truth. There wag "\u25a0abso
lutely no question of the correctness of the re
ceipts, and I was aina;ed at the refusal to re
turn the extra money I had paid. The - same
thing had occurred the year before . and the re
fund had been made at once on that occasion.
When Mr. Clarke denied me the return of my
money today I wan puzzled "S»nd : surprised, and
expressed my opinion . of I the proceedings : in a
way that ancered him. - When I remarked in a
Jocular -way that the graft spirit seemed, to per-:
meate all classes he began to abuce me. threat
ene<i to remofe \u25a0me from - the 'place, ) and oppar-'
ently tried to dislodge articles of furniture" with
which to attack ; m/. !> :lt - was ,an unpleasant
scene. I left, at once. I . consulted with the
president of the bank where . I do business in
Berkeley \u25a0 and was - told by him that Mr. Clarke
was notsjuatifled inrefuslng u\e the payment C
asked. I shall refer the matter to Mr. Clarke's
superior. Mr. Palton, . and of course it will" be
attended to satisfactorily, in the end.
Major Clarke declares that he had no
wish to collect Bishop Bell's poll tax
twice— "once is enough." He says that
the bishop ' produced; a bank check
marked paid and a poll tax receipt,
whereas two receipts should have been
shown before a refund was made. ' , .
"I resented being called a grafter,"
said Clarke, ."and" told the, man who
thus addressed me to leave the office.
I did notcare to 'talk further on those
lines.. »He left, and , that was all there
was to it. Upon looking up the books
I find that- Mr. Bell paid his poll tax
twice, and that?receipts were'-issued to
him. If he had presented the receipts
there would have been no I
am not allowed to ' accept, a canceled
bank check as. a receipt and that was
what Mr. Bell showed me."

LAWYER'S HOROSCOPE OF

Kill Himself J

Says Law and Stars Make
Good Combination in

Handling Cases \u25a0<*?.'
AL.OIEDA, Jun« 21.— Throush a ho
roscope that he had made of Ralph 5.
Parr, the young book keeper of tha
Burlingame club who Is accused of hav
ing forged a check for $800 upon tho
Bank of Alameda, his attorney. How
ard K. James, declares that he has sat
isfied himself that the youthful defend
ant will not commit suicide.
The lawyer say 3 that he feared that
Parr would resort to self-destruction
after being arrested recently In Den
ver," where h« was held In iall until
Sheriff Frank Barnet arrived and
brought him back here. James, there
fore, had recourse to astrology, whicb.
he asserts^ works In well with the law,
and from a study of tha aspect of tha
planets when Parr was born the lawyer
became convinced that the young booJc
Iseeper would never dl© by tha Parr
hand. .
Parr appeared "before Justice of tha
Peace .E. E. Johnson this morning and
was arraigned. His preliminary exami
nation was set for next Tuesday morn
ing at 10 o'clock. Parr's first appear
ance in court did not seem to perturb
him. He carried himself In a non
chalant manner and stood during the
entire proceedings. Parr senior accom
panied his son to court. At tha request
of the attorney for the defense th»
preliminary hearing -was set for next
Tuesday morning in order to accommo
date J\ H. Colburn. assistant secretary
of the California bankers' association,
who will assist the prosecution.
Parr's bail was fixed at $5,000. When
Attorney James was asked whether ef
forts should be made to secure tha re
lease of the defendant on bonds, tha
lawyer answered:
"No. not In a million years. "We can
not afford- to have such a person as
Parr running at large. It would be un
wise to take any chances with him. W«
believe that he is mentally unbalanced
and intend to prove it by competent
witnesses and medical testimony. I
was .afraid that Parr would take his
life after ht3 arrest in Denver and
made a horoscope that convinced me
that he is not of the kind that destroy
themselves." . .>\u25a0 -A--;
