«tore from (he reor door of tbe nbop,
*' bieh is separated from the den of the
thieves hy n board fence.
In inspecting the store of Gordan &
Co. ih* policenien noticed a plat
form between the fence" and the half
<iemoJished wall of the temple. They
clambered to the platform and were
surprised to find a rope, which, run
ning through a pulley, operated a ;
crude elevator by which the robbers
pulled themselves up or let themselves
down. Thoroughly mystified the . po- j
lice let themselves down cautiously \
Into the chaos of brick and broken
stone below. Here they found a den,
made from loose bricks and large
enough to hold a gang of robbers and
considerable loot. "The place gave evi
dence of having been recently deserted
by the thieves and the jewelry and
other valuables were apparently what
was left hurriedly by them when they
became frightened by fear of ,capture-
The cloth stolen from Gordan & Co.
apparently had been carried off by the
robbers when they fled, but a consider
able quantity of plunder was left be
hind and this was taken to police
headQuarters by Brown and Harvey.
A cordon of patrolmen In plain
clothes patrolled the block all day,
waiting for the return of one; or more
of the robbers, but they apparently
had heard of the seizure of their
stronghold and none of them appeared.
Tbe April earthquake completely de
molished the rear portion of the me
morial temple," leaving the front partly
standing. Tbe front section of the
temple was rebuilt and is occupied by
the Masonic order. The rear part. was
left a heap of brick, .stone, twisted
girders and, broken stones and this
was the section tbe thieves chose.
While the occupied portion was busy
with life and activity tbe ruined section
was habited by rats and the robbers.
The thieves could eneak \u25a0 through ; the
fence in the shadow, and once inside
were at liberty to dispose quietly of
their loot In the den which they let
themselves down Into by means of the
elevator which they had.bnilL Proas
the' lair at their convenience and as
opportunity afforded they carried ; their
plunder out and pawned it or sold it
to second hand dealers.
The discovery, explained a mystery
which had bafSed * the police for some
time. The iyfccl«*ale thefts of stores
where the robbers took: their plunder
away by tbe cartload were explained, !
I for there was room in the' den to hide
'a. gTeat Quantity of loot. .

Pledge of Prosecutors
Is Fulfilled Through
Action of Supervisors
Dean of Hastings College of the Law
Accepts Task Refused by Two
Other Prominent Citizens
Dr. Edward Kobeson Taylor, known as California's
most Versatile ; citizen, distinguished alike as attorney,
[physician and scholar, was elected mayor of the city of
San Erancisco last night' by the board of supervisors.
The selection was determined upon yesterday afternoon
by District Attorney Langdon, Francis J. Heney and
Rudolph Spreckels, and, after Dr. Taylor had expressed
a willingness to accept the office,- the boarid of Supervis
ors was called together, received the resignation of Di*.
Boxtbn, and by a vote of 12 to 2 formally named Dr.
The new mayor, : w^o is 68 years of age, took up his
residence .in San Francisco 45 years asro. He is at pres
ent dean of the 'Hastings law c^Ujg^^djactingpresident]
He was one .of the freeholders
wKo framed : the? city charter and has gained some renown
as a, poet.
It was frankly admitted by the prosecution that Dr.
Taylor was the third man to whom the position Vas of
fered. Dr. John- Gallwey and former Justice Ralph p.
Harrison declined to accept. District Attorney Langdon
said -ne did not know Dr. \ Taylor's political affiliations
and that the prosecution had chosen a man who was rep
resentative neither of labor nor capital, but one who,
he believed, was eminently fitted for the place. Dr.
Taylor said last, night that his leanings had been toward
the democratic party, but that he had been an advocate
of nonpartisan movements.
'Although burdened with. onerous cares and respon
sibilities, Dri Taylor when approached by District At
torney Langdon^ said that he considered it his duty to
accept. All the books in the. large "library of the new
mayor bear a plate on which is the inscription, * 4 Labor
and serve." It .would appear that he had determined to
live up to the motto. .
Dr. .Taylor will assume his. new duties. this morning.
Just when the general civic house' cleaning will be inaug
urated he was unpreparpii: last night: to say. The fifteen
supervisors under the i domination of the big stick will
resign as soon as Dr. Taylor is prepared to name their
successors. Then he will take up the work of cleansing
the various departments. *
