SAWAIUK TROUPE <-F JAPANESE MARVELS Otter net* — I^iept Motion Pictures. i'rlces. loc. £0c 20c POLICEMEN OF PARIS STUDYING LANGUAGES Handy Guides for Strangers Who Cannot Speak French NUISANCE •OF AUTOS Two San Franciscans In jured Conceal Names to Avoid Notoriety SPECIAL COItnESrOXDENCE OF TUX CALL PARIS. Oct. 30. — Paris, tlv> home of originality, may always be counted upon to do something original. As a result of one of its latest "ideas" strangers from other countries who are unable to speak French will find it an easy matter lnthe near future to find their way about the French capital as a result of the action of the civil authorities. The department of police has s.»nt a number of Its most Intelli gent policemen to "school," and they ar« now industriously engaged In studying English, German and Spanish for the benefit of strangers who may come here, and, not being conversant with the French language, may easily obtain desired information by applying to any of the linguistic policemen on duty in the more populous sections of the city. One must be careful, however, to take refuge on the so called "safety sta tions," such as exist in San Francisco, where the French policemen in question are to bo found, otherwise you may come in contact with one of the great est problems Paris has to deal with, namely, traffic. As In San Francisco, the enormous Increase In the number of automobiles for all uses and the incent ive to speeding induced by the wide, well paved (streets, strikes terror to the heart of the timid being who hesitates about crossing a crowded boulevard. During the summer just passed two San Franciscans were injured by auto mobiles while crossing utree'ts, but, dreading the notoriety which they knew would follow the publication of their Identity and the added anxiety which the news would bring to their friends In California, they resolutely refused to give their right names and addresses to the police, preferring to go to pri vate hospitals for a few days under assumed names, remaining there until fully recovered. It Is all very well to say "that auto is coming- this way" or "that machine is gping in the opposite direction." To the nervous person crossing a boule vard the autos all seem to be coming directly at you, as persons crossing Van Ness avenue during shopping hours will readily appreciate, so who can blame ono, especially if the per son be a woman, for making tracks back and forth In the dust of the street., like a chicken when attempting to cross? Your kind friends advise you, "Don't look to the right or left, but just keep straight on," but how fan one do that when a big "red devil" is coming toward you at the rate of £0 miles an hour? The autumn races, like the autumn salon, bring out all the ultra smart set In their new gowns. As it commences to grow chilly late in the afternoon furs are almost a necessity". One par ticularly beautiful garment worn at the raceselast week was a long cloak lined with white satin, all around the edge inside being a wide band of Japa nese embroidery, the collar and cuffs being of the same trimming. A little bolero effect of chinchilla had a wide band of guipure all around the vest. while the .cuffs also were of guipure. A long sort of red- Ingote in astrakan trimmed with black velvet and heavily braided was tre mendously smart. Hats continue to grow larger and. larger. Many are copies of hats seen in pictures of the time of Marie Antoinette and Mada-n Le Brun. How' to get out of streetcars, carriages or autos without having your hat knocked off is a subject requiring much care. | Many pretty vests for morning wear are of satin, suede or very soft leather, and are worn with severely plain tailor made gowns. With more* dressy tail ored suits, which have pretty jackets and with which skirts are worn long, vests and blouses of lace or filet are generally seen. Boutonnieres are also worn by smart women.

Railway Men's Gossip "In Mexico," observed the world vide traveler, "they do things differ ently to what we do in this country. Here we try to shock the tender sensi bilities of everybody; there they are regardful of people's feelings. I do not know whether It is Epos Randolph who has introduced politeness as a factor in railroading, but I must say I was pleased when I saw on one of Me engines 'this Inscription: 'The iauies and gentlemen patrons of this load are graciously requested to re frain from getting on or off this loco motive, as such action may tend to the grievous injury of said perrons.' "I mentioned to this engineer, who, by . the way, was an American, how much plf»asant<»r was this than our brutal "Keep off.' "'ls that so." replied that worthy dryly; 'are those the words on that scrap of writing? Well, I'd like to sp<? any one on this engine.- I'd kick him off.

Stef fens related the history of the graft prosecution in N,ew York and spoke of the early efforts of President Roose velt to punish grafters. . N The New York police, he stated, were not responsible for the corruption in that department of the city, but that It should be placed at the. door of the politicians. H-e further said that many of the state and national legislators were In- office only to take advantage of the opportunities to graft. Steffens briefly referred to conditions in other cities and confined the greater portion of his remarks to Kan Francisco. He spoke in part as follows: "The President, who j was the first muck raker, has made me one of that class. My first connection -with Roose velt was in the New York police force war, when hundreds of citizens came :to him as police commissioner and beggedTrtm \to enforce the laws. When in Washington I discovered that the speaker of the house of representa tives has a tighter combine than is found In any city in the country. I went among them as a mere citizen and they asked me what I wanted. T,hey deal only with the men who- want things.

The public utility class in* veigled them into doing it. Do you suppose Pat Calhoun enjoys the kind of work he has men do for him? Men of his class argue that they have tc do these things, but I believe'that suc cessful government should predominate successful business, if not those things which corrupt t should be —removed. Don't hate Pat Calhoun, "but don't love him. Bear in mind that good govern ment Is more important than any business or any class on earth." " ANTICLERICALS ARE SUCCESSFUL IN ROME Elections Show the Great Strength of Party Against Church ROME, Nov. 10. — General municipal elections were held in this city today and it Is being declared throughout Rome tonight that the anticlericals have gained their greatest victory since the fall of the church from temporal power. Only municipal offices were filled, but the election assumed a distinct politic al character. The contest came as a conclusion to the anticlerical campaign which had its beginning principally with the present pontificate, for the clericals were then allowed for the first time to participate in the political life of the country. There was a reactionary movement among the anticlerical element; some of them nwung over rrom the conserva tives to the socialists and the munici pal elections in Rome were chosen, tis the battlefield. Defeat being Inevi table, the clericals for the first time since 1870 withdrew from the field and as a result the anticlerical victory was complete and without precedent. The Vatican organs maintained that the abstention of the clerical voters was nothing, more than a matter of tactics. , 'X; '\u25a0'.'.-\u25a0 India's Wild Animal | Annoyances j /"lONSUL E. H. DENNISON of Bom 1 bay quotes a report of the spvern- ment of India which deals with the mortality from wild animals to the effect that the total number of persons killed by wild animals in 1906 was 2,084, as'against 2,051 in 1905. Wolves are reported to have killed 17S persons in the United Provinces, and. in the Madras Presidency tigers were re sponsible for the greater mortality re ported, while a mad wolf in the Shola pur district, Bombay, caused 16' deaths. In Bengal the number of persons killed by elephants rose from 9 in 1905 to 18 In 1906, and a proposal has, it Is stated, been made by the magistrate of Cut tack for the organization of "khedda operations in that district. Tigers killed a larger number of per sons than, in 1905 In Mad,ra3. Bombay,' the United Provinces, ana Burma>- and steps have been taken for the destruc tion ot man eating tigers •In these provinces. Three man eating tigers were destroyed in Sambalpur, Angul and Mandla in 1906. ; The persons" reported to have died from snake bite numbered 22,854, as against 21,797 in 1905, the increased mortality being ascribed to high floods, which drove snakes into houses and" homesteads. »j. - — _ : : v» | x Standard Oil at Dalny \u2666 — — — r— — \u25a0". .-\u2666 •pvERMISSION has just been granted J~ to the Standard oil company by the governor general of the Kwang tung leased territory to establish oil tanks at Dalny.

WIFE WEEPS AS HUSBAND IS ARRESTED AS FORGER E. T. Richards, Bar Tender, Jailed on Charge of Pass ing Bad Checks ACCUSED 5 &V MANY Tradesmen and Others Say . That Prisoner; Swindled Them With Paper On their curt demands to open the rdoor. Detectives T.. J. Bailey and David i Murphy, armed with, a warrant for the : arrest of E. T. Edwards, a bar tender |of 463 Hayes street and accused of I forgery, last 1 night found themselves face to face with the latter's wife, who gave them entrance. • "We want Richards," eald Murphy, walking into the room. ..'\u25a0 "He is not here," replied the woman. Without answering her the detectives walked to a closet against which a bed had been placed. "He not here," reiterated the woman hysterically, laying her hand on Murphy's arm. Disregarding her words the defectives pulled aside the bed, opened the closet _door and foun< Richnrds crouching within. The woman laughed harshly, and then hid her face In her hands. Within a few minutes she had,' however, recovered her com posure and proceeded to collect neces sities hor husband would need in prison. Dry eyed atid calm she wrapped up the articles in a neat /parcel and gave it to her husband. She stood by him for an instant, her fingers twitch ing at the lapels of his coat and then gradually her arms Were wound around his heck. , "Goodby — boy.'j/she said quietly, and turned from him to an open window to hide her tears as the officers took her husband away. RlcharSs Is accused of having forged numerous checks, ranging In amounts from $20 to $100. Among those who received the forged checks were ; Glen M. Nelson; a druggist at 541 Hayes street; Joseph Zera, secretary for the bar tenders' union; John Fauser & Co:; Ed. L. Baldwin. 22 Market street; Mrs. G.' Nelson, Richards' landlady; the gro cery firm of West, Elliot & Gordon, and Genette Scatana, proprietor of a vegetable store. The police are of the opinion that Mrs. Richards was un aware of the forgeries being committed by her husband. POLICE BELIEVE WIFE KILLED HER HUSBAND 'Minon Glaze, Formerly of San Francisco, Meets Death in Portland PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 10.— Minon Glaze, a Russian, known here as Berg, was shot In the back and killed today in rooms occupied by himself, his wife and 6 year old son at 229 ' Eleventh street, this' city. Mrs. Glaze is in the hospital. -She is in a delcate. condition and is bordering on nervous prostra tion. It,is the,bellef of the police that the woman caused the death of her husband in self defense, although she says that he committed suicide. -The police base their theory on the fact that the couple had been quarreling all day and that they had been . sum moned to the house twice before the tragedy occurred on complaint of the wife, who feared her husband would kill her. Enough was gathered, from Mrs. Glaze to learn that her husband was formerly a well to do merchant in Moscow, Rus sia; that he had committed some crime and with his family had fled to Japan by way of Siberia: Mrs. Glaze also makes reference to the police of Japan in such a way as to cause the belief that he was wanted there. The couple, then went to San Fran cisco and from there to Los Angeles and back. While In San Francisco Mrs. Glaze caused her husband's arrest for mistreating her. They arrived here about a week ago. Mrs. Glaze is ,well educated, prepos sessing in appearance and about 26 years old. Glaze was about 40 years of age and would have been considered a fine looking man. UNKNOWN NEGRO TRIES TO KILL MAN OF HIS RACE Fires Shot at His Intended Victim and Then Escapes, Despite Pursuit of Police OAKLAND, Nov. 10. — A shot was fired at E. Weisinger, a negro living at 1610 Fifth street, tonight as he stood in the doorway of his nome t>y an un known negro who . was across the street. The attempt to kill Weisinger occurred at 8 . o'clock, and the man, after shooting, ran along Fifth street to Compbell, where, he was pursued by Policeman Eraigh, but escaped in 4he underbrush of a vacant lot. All at tempts to locate the negro assailant or to Identify him proved unavailing. Detectives Hodgkins and Kyle were detailed from the police station, where the report of the' occurrence was tele phoned by Mrs. McKeller 0M61.1 Fifth street. The unknown negro who did the shooting was directly in front. of her place at -the: time. She saw him run ; and notified a patrolman of * the direction the man took. . It is thought either, that Weisinger was fired at by some enemy among his race or that he was mistaken for some one" else. His wife was beside him at the door.
