Outrage Occurs on Van Ness

The ink slinger is again at work, and
the wreck of a handsome street gown
belonging to -Miss Florence Ives of
2220 Washington street, sister of Mrs.
Henry J. Crocker, attests his presence j
among the crowd of shoppers who !
thronged Van Ness avenue yesterday J
For the first time since reports of
the wanton ruining of women's dresses j
began to come into the police depart- j
jnent several weeks ago the police j
have a good description of the mis- j
creant •who has been committing the I
outrages and today the efforts to cap
ture him will be redoubled. His escape
without detection yesterday was a nar
row one, for as he fled from the corner
where he had thrown ink on Miss Ives'
gown he was seen by several women.
An alarm was raised at once and a
special policeman save chase to the
jnar but fai!«** to 'overtake him.
Mies Ives and Mrs. Henry J. Crocker,
wife of State Harbor Commissioner
Crocker, were walking together on the
sidewalk In front of the White House
In Van Ness avenue near Pine street
when the ink was thrown on the for
mer's dress. They were in the midst
of a crowd of women, attracted by the
display of a directoire gown in one of
the vestibule windows of the store,
when suddenly an acquaintance uttered)
a scream and pointed to the skirt of
Miss Ives' gown.
There on the front breadth of the
handsome gray street costume were
several great splashes of fresh black I
ink. from which trickled little streams J
of the fluid. As the attention of the;
\u25a0crowd was suddenly drawn to Miss;
Ives' dress, several women in the crowd!
saw a man elbow himself hurriedly
away from her side, push through the
Jam ct the front of the store and run
around the corner Into Pine street. A
special policeman, summoned from the!
etore, hurried after the escaping ink]
slinger, but was too late to find him |
among the throngs of shoppers in the!
vicinity. Mrs. Crocker and Miss Ives
were taken into the White House,
where an effort was made to remove
the stains from M;ss Ives' dress, but
the ink had spread so badly on the
ekirt that it was practically ruined-
Several women who witnessed the
affair yesterday gave excellent descrip
tions of the man to the police and set
tled for all time the question of wheth
er it was a man or a woman who has
been committing the depredations.
A couple of weeks ago the police ar
rested a man whom they believed to be
guilty of the many crimes of this na- j
ture, but as there was no evidence!
against him he was sent out of the!
city without being prosecuted. It was J
believed then that no more reports of
Ink clinging would be made, but sev
eral have come In since that time and
It is now certain that If the suspected
man was guilty at all he was not alone

as the "work of America's greatest

the old time prophets to apply the
moral law to the great American cor

teaching, said Dr. Mills, '"is a revival

Trustee Hopkins Orders Experi«
menter From Laboratory
When Voices Sound
Stock Holder in Commercial
System Resents Sordid
Spirit of Worker
Brave Professor Comes to Aid
of Young Scientist With
Offer of Barn
When advancement of learning leads
to sordid gain should it be frowned
upon by a university? Trustee Timo
thy Hokins of Stanford, the temporary
business manager of the institution
while Treasurer Charles G. Lathrop \s
away, has answered this question em
phatically in the affirmative by with
holding the privileges of the: labora
tories from a brilliant young graduate
of the cardinal . institution, who has
lately developed some startling im
provements in wireless telephony.
Dr.' C. D. Marx, head of the depart
ment of civil engineering and a mem
ber of the commission of engineers, en
gaged in the rebuilding of the uni
versity, has answered the question just
as emphatically in the negative by in
stalling the apparatus of the young in
ventor in his spacious- barn, where it
is said that the system has proven so
successful that the professor's live
stock have been driven into a panic of
fear by the mysterious voices in the
loft of their home. - >.•;- .
- Friends of C. F. Elwell, the inventor
in the case, have been unkind enough to
suggest that Hopkins was moved to is
sue his ukase by the fact that he is a
heavy stock holder and a member of
the executive board of the Pacific States
telephone and telegraph company. They
point to the significant fact that the ap
paratus on the big steel tower of the
ruined library building was allowed to
remain undisturbed as long as the uni
versity authorities believed that It was
there to catch dots and dashes and not
vocal sounds.
• Elwell has become well known for his
original work in electrical engineering
and long before his graduation he was
made an assistant in that department at
Stanford. .Last year his work attracted
the attention of the men who are trying
to sell a wireless telephone system to
the government, and the young engineer
was appointed to conduct experiments
for the company on this coast. Tho
backers of the enterprise supplied him
with $6,000 worth of apparatus, and
while college was still open he used
this in conjunction with- the electrical
and chemical laboratories of the univer
As soon as Stanford closed for the
summer he applied to Hopkins for the
privilege of using .the laboratories dur
ing the vacation period, and it is said
that the business manager, still labor
ing under the delusion that the experi
ments were concerned with wireless
telegraphy alone, granted the required
permission without question.
The secret was well kept for a time,
but the voices in the tower swore at
central one day, and Hopkins must
have been passing at the time, for the
inventor was summoned to his .office
and ordered to remove himself and his
apparatus from the campus.
Asked for a reason for this order, the
business manager declared that the pro
ject was purely a commercial affair, and
as such should be given neither the aid
nor the sanction of the university.
With no place to take his expensive ap
paratus, Elwell , was in despair until
Marx came forward with his offer of a

Former Berkeley Physician

of Divorce Suit Brought
by Physician
SANTA CRUZ, July, 8.— "She was
like a vampire, sucking my. blood, drop
by drop," passionately^ exclaimed Dr.
Henry- Nelson -.Miner of -Berkeley, in
court to-day, in referring to his wife,
whom he was suing for. divorce.
Miner interrupted the -proceedings
frequently and j once, after telling A.
H. Elliott, attorney for Mrs. Miner, to
"keep still, you dirty bluffer," he struck
at the attorney in. his rage, knocking
Elliott's : arm off Judge Smith's desk."
"Keep : cool, doctor," " said Judge
Smith. ''When myi get to your age and
mtnOj we don't always -have patience.'

great a sensation^in the local courts as
H. D. Clayton of Alabama, to be permanent chairman "of •democratic [convention, and
T. P. Gore (lower), blind senator from Oklahoma, '.wha precipitated the demonstration r for Bryan.
this suit of Dr. Miner that came up be
fore Judge Lucas F. Smith today. Dr.
Miner had accused his wife of impro
prieties with "the bachelor bucks of the
state university," and had contemptu
ously referred to her as "rustling her
skirts in the bohemian cafes in San
Francisco." On numerous occasions he
had given vent to his pent up feelings
in passionate outbursts of anger, which
reached their climax today.
Miner's attorneys had made a motion
that the order made of January 6, di
recting him to. pay defendant $250 at
torney fees, $100 costs and $50 monthly
alimony, be set- aside. This started a
storm. The motion was denied.-
Matters finally cooled down- long
enough for an agreement to be made by
both parties as follows: Oakland prop
erty to be sold, both parties Joining, in
the deed; proceeds of the sale, $3,000 or
thereabouts, to be applied to mortgage
on Oakland property. • • ;
Interest on -the Berkeley mortgage
must be paid, also any amounts which
have accrued . against property -under
order of court of January 6. Old bills
against property and rents in hands of
defendant .since : December,. 1907, and
any balance there may be shall be paid
into court or deposited as suggested
by Dr. Miner in an Oakland bank, and
it is understood that property c will. have
to be redeemed from the amount re
ceived. , . • 0f \u25a0: .
The couple have two boys, one of 12
years and the other 8. and, as Attorney
Elliott said, the real contest is for" cus-'
tody of. these boys, who are now ; with
their father at Ben Lomond, where the
doctor has taken up his abode j since
filing charges against his' wife. . .

Naturally enough it was a day of
committee work. The session of the
convention during the day was all bun
combe. The big committees were not
ready to report, and the only thing to
do was to listen to speeches and in
troduce Bryan's name at the right time
for a demonstration which should out
last in mere duration that at Chicago
when the magic came of Roosevelt was
sprung upon the convention. Yet here
in Denver all was not harmony, for

fused to join in the demonstration In
spite of the frantic efforts of Bryan
New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Delaware, and even Connecticut, sat
still with Georgia and Tennessee, and
refused to be butchered to make a
Bryan holiday. It was a night session
which did the work and which went
over the report of the credentials com
mittee wherein the master had been
recorded, and prepared itself to adopt
the platform which had been dictated,
plank by plank, from headquarters at
Lincoln. Before the convention met In
Its night session all the work had been
pretty well laid out, and In every de
tail, however minute.* the hand of Bryan,
was constantly made manifest. "
Galley, whose' right to the Philadel
phia delegation was affirmed by I the'
national committee, was deprived of the
ten . delegates . whose seats were In

to secure his return to the national
committee by the narrow majority of a

Pat McCarren of Brooklyn was
thrown out after slight consideration,
thus extending the sphere of Influence
of Tammany across the -East river,
and incidentally losing New York to
Bryan beyond the possibility of a doubt.
because the Brooklyn democracy would
not vote for Bryan now If the Angel
Gabriel was his running mate, and that,
too, in the City of Churches.
Roger Sullivan made good In the cre
dentials committee and Bobbie Burke
was left out In the cold. The Dubols,
or anti-Mormon delegation in Idaho,
was seated and the Mormon crowd In
the shoestring state Is breathing fire
and vengeance against Bryan and all
he stands for, openly declaring he will
be beaten all the way from Shoshone to
Pocatello and from Itathdrum to the
Sawtooth mountains. The district of
Columbia was split up and both the
Johnson and anti-Johnson men In Ohio
were given a, single district.
Although the platform was not ready
when the evening session of . the con
vention was called to order, the sub
committee had pretty well finished its
job and its contents were well under
stood. There Is an antl-iajunctloa
plank which is just as radical as any
thing Bryan has ever asked for, al
though the phraseology has been
changed. This plank did not meet the
approval of Governor Haskell of Okla
homa, chairman of the resolutions com
mittee, who, curiously enough, was a
railroad promoter not so long ago and
was closely associated with B. F. Xoa.
