CAPTAIN MOONEY'S WRIT
OF REVIEW IS SERVED
Plan to Appoint Successor
to Him Majr Not Be
Put Into Effect
COURT ISSUES ORDER
Enjoins Board From Taking
Any Proceedings Until
Further Notice
The board of police commissioners ;
did not meet yesterday afternoon ow- \u25a0!
ing to the absence of President Hag
erty. The other three commissioners
were present, constituting a quorum,
but Secretary Skelly received word
from Hagerty to postpone the meeting
until this afternoon at. 1 o'clock, as he
desired to be present and take part
in the proceedings.
Lieutenant Bernard McManus and
Sergeant David W. Boyd 'were, in at
tendance by request to be . promoted
respectively to * a captaincy and lieu
tenancy. They were asked to return
this afternoon.
While the three commissioners were
in secret session Attorney Theodore
Roche served them with a copy of a
writ of review obtained by him on be
half of Captain Mooney from Presid
ing Judge Coffey ordering them to ap
pear in Judge Seawell's court on Fri
day, August 9, with the record of the
proceedings at the trial of Captain
Mooney and a transcript of the testi
mony and judgment. The order of the
court concludes as follows: "And we
do further command you and each of
you that in the meantime you desist
from taking any proceedings in : rela- :
tion-to, or upon, said charges, decision,
judgment or penalty aforesaid."
If. Is the Intention of the board to
promote Lieutenant McManus this
afternoon to fill the vacancy caused by
the dismissal of Mooney, but a question
has arisen as to whether the board:
will do so legally in view of the order
pf court and whether the board would
not be In contempt of -court.
Should McManus be promoted the
court might hold that Mooney , was
dismissed illegally,' and a complication
would then 'ari.v.".: Mooney would have
to be reinstate*, but McManus would
still continue to hold the rank of cap
tain, as the board would not have
power under the charter, to'disrate
McManus. The complication would be
made greater 1 by the " fact' that the
charter allows one captain for. every
100 men and there would be one cap
tain too many.
Mooneyes appeal f was taken under : a
law passed by -the last legislature,
which gives superior courts the power
to review the proceedings of boards of
police commissioners. Many attorneys
question the constitutionality of this
law, and Mooney's case will be made a
test.
The application for a writ of review
filed by Mooney questions not only the
charges on which , he was' tried, but
alleges that the evidence on which he
was dismissed from the force .was
wholly insufficient to Justify such a
penalty. Mooney asks the superior
court to annul the verdict of the com-]
mission. The troubles of Mooney* were
begun soon- after he started a crusade
against disorderly places in the red
light district He was' haled before the
police commission on a charge- of. in
subordination, it being alleged that he
had declared that he knew, that half of
his men were .corrupt -and ; that he
could do 'nothing; because the police
commissioners were appointed "for. a
purpose." Following the arraignment
of Mooney he hurried to the superior
court, and Judge Seawell decided that
the complaint was defective. When
Assistant City. Attorney John T. Wil
liams drew a new complaint Mooney
appealed to the superior court again,
but Judge Sturtevant decided against
him. Mooney was then tried, convicted
and dismissed from the department.
MOORE'S BOND JUST FILED
New Police, Commissioner May Have
Acted Illegally, in Mooney Case
Although John ' X Moore, the new
police commissioner, was appointed to
office by Mayor. "Schmitz on June 22, he
did not file his bond with- Recorder
Nelson until last Wednesday and not
until yesterday was it approved by that
official. This act may be the grounds
fora dispute in. the Mooney ease. and.
should it be shown that Moore has
been acting illegally as a police com-.,
missioner it may give Mooney a chance
to appeal. . . ..-..- %
Moore's, $5,000 bond. was' furnished by
the United States. Surety, \u25a0 and Guar
antee company. A strange thing about
the bond is that, it was approved by
Schmitz, .then mayor, and Auditor, Hbr
tonon June 22, whereas the seal of the
indemnity company- was not attached,
according to the document, until June
25, or three days after its approval by
the mayor; and -auditor.- . • .1 *
Recorder Nelson stated . yesterday
that Moore had presented his bond* for
flllng-shortly after .Moore's "appoint
ment to office, but that it. had not yet
been certified to by- a notary, public,
and that he had refused to ; record It
until this, was done.; Moore had; then
taken it , away, Nelson said, and had
not brought it back until Wednesday,
when he returned it with \u25a0 a notary's
certificate and seal attached. ; :
Whether this failure to file bond Jwill
render any act : taken . thus far by
Moore Illegal may have to be deter-,
mined. There ' Is nothing in the , char
ter ;that says the [ bond ; must- be. filed
before an appointee . . takes office "br.
whether, he shall wait until afterward,
but the first provision of, the. bond
states clearly that he does.' "Whereas,
said John X Moore.. la T required by law
to file an official [ bond • previous . to j en
tering into the duties of 'said office" is

HARRIMAN IS COMING TO
AID SAN FRANCISCO
Will Spend Several Weeks
Here in Trying to Im
prove Affairs
SPECIAL DISPATCH TO . TIIE CALL
NEW YORK. July 25.— E. H. Harrl-
man will leave, for the Pacific- coast
within a short time to' be gone four or
five weeks." The, object of his trip
aroused : some concern in Wall street,
inasmuch. as there had been reports
that the financial situation in San Fran
cisco was not at all serene. It Is now
more than a' year since Harriman .In
spected the various properties of the
Union .Pacific and Southern Pacific, and
doubtless the affairs of these. roads and
the - score .of ; affiliated concerns require
attention ; at " this , ; time.
I'JHis -point' out, however, that
the last i year \u25a0 has_^ been . a \u25a0 trying one,
full rOf* investigations, criticisms /..a n»i
attacks.* "His "only holiday has been a
short visit" to Newport, following the
famous dividend declaration of August.
1906. Now when there is an oppor
tunity to, take a vacation, he announces
a "business trip to San Francisco.^ : The
inference is drawn that the business
demands are urgent.
It' v is "pointed out that the business
community/of San Francisco Is. now
feeling 'the effects •. of the dreadful
catastrophe /which occurred .in . the
spring of last- year, tn addition the
labor, troubles seriously have impaired
the earning powers of great industries
on the^coast,. and credit resources have
been curtailed" greatly. It is believed
Harrimah will' devote his energies and
genius"; to improving the condition of
affairs ' in ' and . around San \u25a0 Francisco.
UNION PACIFIC DIVIDENDS
. WILUBE RAISED SOON
Nearly /; One Million Dollars Addi-
tional Revenue Will Be Result
of 'Latest Action
NEW. YORK, July 25.— At the meet
ing of the Union Pacific board today no
action 2 in; respect ,to dividends will be
taken, ' but : the "> executive committee' of
the ; company will recommend to the
board of directors advancing; the div
idend.from 5 per cent per annum to 1%
per cent: quarterly. .
; This recommendation Is to be acted
upon by the board after directors of
the Southern \u25a0.Pacific ! have their August
meeting.. , This i arrangement will give
the\Union; Pacific : $900,000 additional
revenue ;per (( annum.*.The: statements . of
the : earnings of both corporations are
such , that , the ; proposed dividends 'of
both companies \u25a0 are understood to be
very conservative.
