Events of a Day in Four Counties About the Bay
WANT CITY TO ASSIST
SPRING VALLEY COMPANY
Water Committee Makes
Two Ardent Appeals to
Supervisors
NEED MORE REVENUE
Government May Aid in the
Acquisition of a New
Plant
Through two resolutions adopted
yesterday by the water supply com
mittee of the allied commercial and in
dustrial organizations, the board of
'supervisors is to be appealed to to save
the cJty from danger of a water fam-
Arxe. One resolution is to the effect
that the city attorney be instructed to
confess Judgment in the suit against
'the city brought by the Spning valley
water company to prevent the col
lection of the low water rate for mu
nicipal consumption of water. The
resolution asked the board to adopt
an order whereby the water company
can secure an additional revenue of
$240,000 annually, which sum is needed,
it is declared, for the reconstruction
of the pipe line from the Pilcarcites
rer-ervoir across the San Bruno marsh
to Lake Honda. The Lake Hor.da reser
voir holds the water supply used in
case of fire. The startling discovery
has been made that the water has been
sinking at the rate of 25 per cent of
the reservoir capacity during the past
\u25a0six weeks.
The second resolution was an appeal
to the supervisors to rescind the reso
lution which declared the Hetch-Hetchy
valley supply unavailable. On the
night of July "4. 'at S^3o o'clock. Sec
retary of the Interior Garfield, who
will be in this oily, will meet With
the committee on water suppiy to con
sider the question of the federal gov
ernment giving San Francisco a water
right to the surplus -water in the Tuo
lumne region. j~vi ;
There were present at the meeting,
\u25a0which was held in the rooms of the
merchants' association in the Mer
chants' exchange building yesterday.
Colonel W. H. Hcucr, chairman of th»
committee; Walter Mac Arthur, secre
tary; James D. Phcian, Michael Casey,
O. X. ilclntosh, Isadore Jacobs and C.
H. Bent ley.
In the executive session the commit
tee discussed the valuation of the
Spring valley water company's plant
with a view to recommending certain
portions of it for purchase by the city.
Colonel Heuer and O. K. Hclntosh re
cently made an inventory of the prop
erty and reported that those parts of
the property which the city might
need are worth less by approximately
56.000.000 than the charge of $31.
000,000. which the corporation would
make the city.
Colonel Heuer reported to the com
mittee the result of his examination
of the Spring valley system. He told
of the serious condition in which he
found the Lake Honda supply. Isadore
Jacobs spoke of the da.nger of fire In
which the city would be in case of a
further curtailment of the water sup
ply.
Colonel Heuer stated that the com
pany was now working to put the
Pilarcites pipe line on solid ground,
and would continue the work to July
15 in hope that the supervisors would
grant them the additional income. It
was reported that City Attorney Wil
liam Burke had advised the commit
tee's representative that the proposed
action of the city In confessing judg
ment would be legal. If that action
Is not taken the pipe line work will be
stopped.
James D. Phelan reported that he
had a letter from Secretary Garfield
in which that official stated that he
had reserved the night of July 24 for
a discussion of the Hetch-Hetchy pro
ject. The committee is not committed
to that plan, but considers the valley
as one of the available sources which
must be considered.
WODDWORTH DENIES THE
CHARGES OF PLAGIARISM
BERKELEY, July 13. — Professor
Charles W. Woodworth issued a state
ment this morning denyinr^he charges
<of plagiarism made against him in an
jinterview at Sacramento attributed to
Horticultural Commissioner S. A- Pease.
."Woodworth is accused by Pease of us
ing the writings of Gossard. without
jcredlt, in a university bulletin on the
•white fly pest. Also, the commissioner
charges the professor with a desire to
take credit for work done by the
horticultural commission In supre.sslng
ithe white fly pest. Professor Wood
sworth said today:
It is ilfneolt to btlieve that Commissioner
Fcase Bade the etatements attributed to him
I treat that he ha* been misquoted. I am not
pullty of plagiarism, nor does the entomological
peptrtn>*nt of the university desire credit for
tie connexion's work. The work of the com
mission in the white fly matter has been n*lf
toearted, and not such as I should desire credit
for. Orders were given by the commission to
th« Marysville orchardlsU to cut down trees
infected with the white fly, the work to be
<lone . b 7* Juljr S - When l *"*\u25a0 recently
about 60 frees out of 1,000 had b»en cut down.
tThe commission* order apparently remains to be
obeyed.
Caneernte* the charge that I have used Go«
eard's writings oa the white fly la my bulletin*
without giving er«dlt. I have but to say ttat
wherever Gossard's work U nsed in my bulletin,
credit nas been given. Goseard's name aunears
In the bulletin. E« and I worked toretter six
or s*vea years ago In the south on the white
£y pest and information on the subject pesslblv
Is similar In a degree.
Commissioner Pease U credited with sarinr
that to« university desires to get Into the white
fly eJtuatlcn and jraln the credit of the work
done by Importing Prof. W. T. Clarke from Ala
bama In the campaign against the white fly
The absurdity of that will be 'understood when
It Is known that Professor Clark, a former
member of onr department, was on his way to
California froa Alabama \u25a0to resume - his work
here before It was known that the white fir ex-
Jsted la California. 7

St. Elizabeth's- Parish Plans Improvements
"Fruitvale Pastor Secures Means to Rebuild
OAKLAND. July 13.— Under the di- \
rectlon of Rev: P. Victor, rector. of St. ,
Elizabeth's church, Fruitvale, extensive j
improvements in the parochial build- . i
ings, including the church edifice, the |
school and auditorium, have been j
planned. The church front is to be re- j
j constructed, and an addition is to be j
i made to the school to meet the in
creased demand upon it by reason of
the growing population. '
Father Victor, who is a- member of
the monastic order of Franciscans, has
nade an appeal to the friends of the
church, to help in his effort to meet j
the call upon him for larger quarters i
and' better accommodations. The pa
rishioners have taken a lively Interest
in the plans of improvement, and have j
arranged a series of entertainments'
toward raising the money necessary to
carry forward Father Victor's . ambi
tious projects.
The first of the benefit events will
take place July 25 at the new Fairlawn
hotel in Fruitvale. There will be a
banquet and a musical entertainment.
The program will bo arranged by a
committee of the parishioners. Excel- •
lent talent in vocal and instrumental
numbers will take part. M. L. Rose,
the Fairlawn manager, will have
charge of the banquet, at which many
prominent Oaklanders and Fruitvale
residents will be guests. The details
have been given into competent hands
to work out for a social and financial
success.
ADDITIONAL CARS WILL
BUN TO BEACH TODAY
\u25a0 Officials of the United Railroads an
1 nounced last night that in anticipation
of a heavy traffic to outing places this
afternoon an additional number of cars
will be placed on the Park and Cliff
House lines. .
The running of the cars yesterday
was attended by no special incident.
The usual number of vehicles were in
operation. The officials of the street
car company and the carmen's union
expressed themselves as satisfied with
the outlook. The members of the car
men's union busied themselves with
making preparations and securing sub
scriptions for their new publication,
The Picket, whose first issue will ap
pear during the wsek.
The general campaign committee of
the car strike issued the following
statement last evening:
At the end of the tenth week of the strike
we find that the United Railroads has been un
able to improve It* service from what It had two
weeks after the strike bepan. Despite the
statements of the company of improved service
and more cars, the following accurate table will
show the number of cars in operation for the last
12 days: Jnly 1, 207 cars: July 2, 202: July 3,
220; July 4, 215: July 6. 210; July 6, die- July
; 7, VO9; July 8, 213; July 9, 209; July 10; 2i4
This will ghow positively that the - company
has not been able to Increase -its. service. The
mechanics In the barns and the workshops are
leaving. They cannot secure and retain compe
tent men. The result Is that the cars on the
streets are in a very dangerous condition, which
Is evidenced by the motors burning; up, control
lers flashing and air brakes jetting out of order.
Several of the old platform men who returned
to work have become diagusted and again left
the employ of the company, x
Both the United Railroads and the California
street railroad company, in their desperate ef
forts to obtain railroad men, are employing men
whom -they, formerly discharged for dishonesty,
draikesness and general lncompetcncy. - :'

marked that '-. Fargey acted ;In % self-de

KANSAS AIMS TO BREAK
UP INSURANCE TRUST
Suit Is' Instituted by State
Attorney General to En
_ force New Law
COMBINE ON RATES
Concerns Alleged to Have
Agreed to Eliminate - •
Competition
: TOPEKA, Kan, July 13.— Injunction
suits^were filed in the county .district
court here today by Attorney General
F. S. Jackson against 62 foreign flre
insurance companies; charging them
with alleged violation of the state' anti-.
trust laws.'. The suits are based on in
formation : furnished by Charles ;-H.
Barnes, \ superintendent of insurance,'
; and seek : • to\ prevent the companies
from using the Eldridge rating sheet
in.writing. Kansas insurance. The suits
involve every . flre insurance company
within the- state.
' In the: 'affidavit filed by the attorney,
general he says:
"There'is in existence In the state of
Kansasan unlawful arrangement, trust
and combination"' in. restraint ; of the
business of ; flre insurance within the
state of Kansas. The above named de
fendants are members and participants
in such unlawful agreement, trust.-and
combination; by means of suchunlaw
ful_ arrangement, trust and combination
the, costs and rates of insurance to the
citizens of "Kansas is arbitrarily fixed
hig-h and extortionate by one Charles
E. Eldridge of Shawnee county, who : Is
agent or; other general functionary Jot
some character, and who by common
concent of the above named defendants
and by, certain .unlawful arrangement,
combinations and agreements between
them, \is authorized and permitted by
the above named | defendants to fix the
cost and rate of flre insurance." -
.. Barnes alleges - that competition
almost totally abolished and the rates
an_d",cost of Insurance fixed so high as
to be prohibitive in many Instances.
This; is the same bureau which Webb
McNall putVout of business while he
wa§ superintendent of insurance. J - r-Itr -It
was then known as the Clarkson bu
reau. Eldridge was a clerk there at
the time. :, '
Judge W. W. Dana, who heard the
attorney general's application later,
granted % a temporary injunction. - The
attorney -, general announced that he
would seek to have the injunction made
permanent. . The court did not set a
date for the'hearlng on the application
for a , permanent order. |
The attorney; general went further
than applying for, an injunction against
the companies. He specifically asked
that if the defendant companies fail to
, comply with the orders of the /court
a receiver^be appointed to take charge
of the property of each company in
! volved.

Young Girl Imagines Her

Mistaken y in Believing She
/ Was to Blame for
. Passing of Child
ALAMEDA, July 13.— Believing that
she was responsible* for the death of
her year and; a .half old- stepbrother,
whomf she' had let fall from. a baby
carriage a month ago. Miss Kittie Brat
tan, '; 18 J years'; of 'age, 'drank carbolic
acid immediately after the child's, death
this afternoon. She hovers^ between life
and 'death In. the Broadway sanato
rium. .: ' - V v
; Miss Brattan lived with Mr. and-Mrs.
Joseph: M. . de Sota, the latter being
the; .young woman's "mother, on the
Captain ;R.R. r > Thornpson place, High
street and Central avenue. Her step
father ',; Is a- horse trainer and keeper
of the Thompson grounds.
\u25a0 .While ; Miss Brattan >,was wheeling
her | little stepbrother,^ Elmer de Soto,
In his baby buggy, four weeks ago the
child; toppled out . of the vehicle and
thereafter; became ill. During the- in
fant's^ Illness the young woman was
very ; devoted to'; the . little patient. She
said repeatedly that it was her fault
that; the baby had been taken 111 and
chided. herself; constantly for what she
believed was her carelessness in hav
ing:.:, permitted.; the little one to fall
from the buggy.
: When the baby died this afternoon
Miss Brattan was at the bedside. As
soon as the' end had come the young
woman ran wildly , from the apartment
and into - the kitchen, . . where she
grabbed , a bottle containing carbolic
acid. Before . her sister, Miss Stella
Brattan, could prevent the act she had
quaffed half of the poison. A call was
sent in \u25a0 for; the ; city ambulance and
the would be. suicide was moved to the
sanatorium, where she was treated by
Dr. J. A. Rlley. The physician; sue
; ceeded in relieving the * patient and
gave it as his opinion that she would
recover. . . .
Dr. Riley, who also attended the De
Sota child, said" that the" baby died of
spinal meningitis and: not as the result
of any shock or injury, that he may
have : received in.: the fall from the
baby carriage a month ; ago. The phy
sician said that Miss Brattan was of
a hysterical temperament and that
her worry \u25a0 during the illness of her
little^stepbrother had temporarily un
balanced her mind.

nienne, who has won laurels in the

the stage, has ' been cast in the v lead-
Ing role of "The Professor's Love
Story," J. M. Barries delightful comedy,
which will be presented Monday night

COUNTY OFFICIALS IN
TANGLE OVER LAWSUIT
Deputy Clerk Hires Attache
of District Attorney
to Defend Him
WOMAN WANTS $3,000
Claims She Gave Money to
J. F. Glover to Open
OAKLAND. July 13. — Proceedings to
Judge Ellsworth's^court today over an]
attachment suit brought to light an un-j
usual tangle of official and private husl- \
ness, which involved deputies -In th» j
county \. clerk's office . and the district •
attorney's department. ',
A week ago Olive Scully levied upon)
a saloon in Broadway, near Seventh 1
street, to recover by attachment $3,000;
and interest which she asserted she had;
lent Deputy County Clerk James F.
Glover. It was set forth that Glover;
was the owner "of the resort and that,
the cash had been used to start th» ;
business. " The woman, through the
sheriff, caused a keeper to b« installed
in the saloon. . j
Glover employed Chief Deputy Dia-»
\u2666r«it Attorney W. H. L. Hynas to protect.
his interests. While examining the>
papers this week the dr»covery was
made that the county of San Fran-;
Cisco, instead of the county of Alameda,
had been used in them. '. This alleged {
defect was taken .as the basis of an •
appearance before Judge Ellsworth to
day by Hynes with a motion to dis
solve the - attachment. That was th»
order of the court.
Attorney Douglass from San Fran
cisco*' representing Olive Scully, noticed
the error in time to apply for the issu
ance of a second writ of attachment.
He repaired to the county clerk's ofilco
and was there met by an obstacle in
the shape of a question as to tha
legality of issuing a new attachment
before the old one was dissolved.
Advice of District Attorney Brown
was sought.. That official, according
to Attorney Douglass, declined to take
part in the affair, in view of the fact
that his chief deputy was acting as
attorney In the case. Brown said that
this was Hynes* private business.
The complication . that ensued left
the county clerk without an adviser
in the case. Meanwhile the old at
tachment had been dissolved and At
torney Douglass was left upon his own
resources. He said that he would
doubtless file another attachment, go
to the courts and fight out his client's
claims.
