Two San Franciscans In

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
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
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
| 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

him off. I don't . believe in mincing

STEFFEN S RAKES STATE
LEGISLATURES AS ROTTEN
Tells California Club of
Statesmen Who Grow
Fat on Graft
DEPEW ONLY WAITER
Political Corruption Is Mere
"Taking of Tip From
The members of the California club
listened to a talk oil "Graft" given by-
Lincoln Steffens, the magazine " writer^
who has been following the. prosecu
tion of grafters in different sections of
the United 'Slates, yesterday afternoon ;
in^thc clubrobnis in Clay street. 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. Heney couldn't touch the big
gest graft in Oregon, the railroads, be
cause the\ railroads have representa
tives and senators from every state to
protect them. They arc. all business
men and they do the business of those
who want to break the laws. It is all

leaders. 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." "

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

ported, while a mad wolf in the Shola

In 1906, and a proposal has, it Is stated,

On their curt demands to open 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

bar tenders' union; John Fauser & Co:;
Ed. L. Baldwin. 22 Market street; Mrs.

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
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.

FALSE STORIES NEARLY
BREAK OFF ENGAGEMENT
Explanation Comes in Time
/and Young, Couple Are
to Be Wedded '
Special by Leased Wire to The Call
WOBURX, Mass.. Xov. 10. — The en
gagement of Dr. Vernon C. Stewart of
tkis city to Mlsa Carlyn Louise Thomp
son, daughter of E. Frederick Thomp
son, an Oakland, Cal., millionaire
broker, brings to light a romance
blighted by Jealousy. The couple met
at a Columbia university social gath
ering and a courtship and engagement
followed. The wedding was to have
taken- place shortly after thp young
student received his degree. But their
plans were blighted. \u25a0\u25a0
The fiancee of on« of Stewart's col
lege chums met Stewart and determined
to win him. She also met and became
acquainted with other Columbia stu
dents, among them being the scion of
a wealthy family who was leading a
wild life in New York's tenderloin and
who often traveled under an assumed
name. The young woman, believing
that she could break off the engage
ment between Dr. Stewart and Miss
Thompson, was credited with circulat
ing rumors that Dr. Stewart was the
student who was leading this double
lite. Soon after these stories reached
the ears ;of Stewart's fiancee and her
friends and they were dumfounded.
Finally Dr. Stewart heard of the
stories. He learned who the real cul
prit was. but he made no attempt to
take the stain off himself, knowing that
to do so would be exposing his fellow
student and probably result in his dis
inheritance. Miss Thompson demanded
an explanation, of Dr. Stewart, but he
refused it to protect his friend^
"Mrs. Stewart, the doctor's mother,
finally heard of the threatened breach
and made the. necessary explanation.
