Mysterious Friends
H. Pierre Smith
LAn early morning automobile ride
in an ugly accident in the
J great highway in Golden , Gate park;
*the utter disappearance of H. Pierre
"Smith, a widely known San Francisco
•photographer; the mysterious spirit
ing away of a handsome and remark
ably well' dressed young woman from
: the * emergency ' hospital — these
strange' events resulted in fruitless
search for Smith by wildly anxious
; relatives all yesterday afternoon and
From the time a big touring car
overturned with him and four com
panions "he had vanished utterly, and
the young woman, the accident's only
• victim, "bad left a false address at the
i-hoepltal whence ' Ehe had been hurried
'by, unknown companions.
Smith's Etudlo at 1117 Geary street
:is .one. of the , better known of the
• city. Smith occupies apartments In
ipolk street near Filbert He did not
; return to his rooms Saturday night. In
• the late evening he and two younger
itnen and .two young women, whose
. appearance, according to those who saw
[ them, was that of women of refinement,
'were out at the beach. A part of the
! time they spent at Sheehan's beach
tavern. They departed from this place
« after midnight.
While speeding down the south drive 1
.at the entrance to the great highway
Jat" 1:30 in the morning the machine
I ewerred, ran upon the curbing and
\ overturned. The five occupants were
j thrown out.
One of the younger women lay un
conscious. Another auto which was
! passing stopped and took the injured
j girl to the park emergency hospital.
'The two young men companions went
Uo the E&me place. The surgeons found
; a concussion to be the extent of the
girl's Injuries. When this had been
- given attention she joined the young
(men who had waited for her outside.
! Sh« said her name was Hoffman, and
; that she lived In the Dolores hotel
»»t Sixteenth and Market streets.
At the Dolores hotel no Miss* Hoffman
lives. Nor was any guest of that place
.Injured Saturday night, according to
the management.
Smith did not appear at his rooms
yesterday and his daughter, Mrs. Stan
ley Dollar, who phoned to every one of
bis friends, was unble to learn any
thing ot him.
The wrecked auto was taken to a
neighboring garage. It was a hired
machine and the garage people knew
nothing of the occupants. ' Nor could
anything, be learned as to whither
Smith had gone after the accident or
•what had become of the second woman

SANTA ROSA, Aug. 23.— Shooting
ruthlessly into a throng of "men and
women who had' remonstrated with
him over his treatment of an old man,
an unknown Italian tonight wounded
two countrymen and an American at
a dance and then escaped from a mob
that set out to catch him and'admin

hour the man had not been captured,
although the entire police force of
Santa Rosa and a posse >of deputy
sheriffs were on his trail. /> It I « is j
thought that one o- the victims * may
die. -.
The men who were shot are _ Babbo
blni Duerino, wounded In the left
breast near the heart, and whose con- ;
dition is critical; Stabino Cassaccia,
shot- in the left ankle, and a man :
named Ritchie. -
The flght occurred atTatinl's Italian
hotel during the usual Sunday night
dance. The man who did the shooting
was a comparative' stranger to his
countrymen. He behaved -boisterously
during the early evening and in a fit
of -temper attacked an aged man who :
had taken offense at the rowdy tactics
of the intruder, knocking him' over a
chair. . \u25a0 *£•; ..; : ; v :;.. -' : .. -;""-,'- i
Immediately .the place was in an. upr.
roar. Men and women- stopped;. their
dancing and turned on the .stranger.'
A young woman friend of ; the 'aged
man-- denounced his assailant,* bitterly
and; her , escort advanced | toward him;
when j the \u25a0 fellow py lied revolver* and
fired five shots Into the crowd that i a
moment before had been making merry

Duerino. Cassaccia and Ritchie fell
before the bullets. Menacing .the
dancers with his smoking weapon the

hall into the street and by, a. sudden
dash disappeared from view. Instantly
the dancers, men'and women, started In
pursuit." The: police were' notified and

NEW YORK/ Aug. 23.— A fund of
$1,000,000 is being raised by United
States army ofHcers, according to a re
port . tonight,- to be applied to the de
fense of Captain Hams and Thornton
Jenkins Hams. - -\u0084''
Within the last three days officers of
various forts have called upon General
Peter Hams, father .-. ot:: the prisoners,
and assured him that the army men
are deeply in ' sympathy ; with his sons
and are eager^ to aid in getting them
out of their predicament-- ..: . '• ;.
The gigantic fund was started last
week and - already, according 'to the
report, considerably more tfian $100,

If anything ! approaching ; 1 1,000,000 , will
be required ' for \u25a0( the -'.defense/ but f-the"

or Her counsel , tending toward a recon
ciliation with' her husband.' .-,
"There have been none excepting the
first Intimation that reached me," he re
plied. ... "I do not expect that Mrs. Hams
will be a witness for the defense unless
the situation changes."" w \u0084'-\u25a0',y l\
"Mclntyfe said he doubted if the state
would call "Mrs. Hams, but added that
If iit did the defense would certainly
put her through a severe" cross examin

Pioneer Line Wielder Starts to

Is Saved by Boatman
Jack Flnnlgan. pioneer among the
Sunday fishermen, started to sea unpre>
medltatingly yesterday in tow of the
strangest tug that ever operated in the
vasty deep that lies off the shore line
from the aeawair to Mission rock. A
shark was Finnigan's tow. For a few
wet \u25a0 moments "It looked as if - the ' old.
old story , of "Offiagin; on agin, gone
agin.* Finnlgan" was to be sadly drama
tized, but Harry Johnson, boatman,
came, heroically _ to Finnigan's* rescue.
Johnson himself engages in the -tow
boat business when he is not .taking
folk : from up country out to see our
nation's .defenders, the .battleships, and
It aroused his professional jealousy to
see a* man 'towing shark, and a baby
Ehark at that. Intruding in a field that
| by rights belongs to licensed pilots who
: can charge a fee for their services.
: The shark in -the case did not even have
a permit from the ! United States in
spectors'to go Into business. He was
a bounder, k ; ' . •
"'Finnigari hag been fishing along the
water . front on Sundays for 10 years.
His ? particular point of vantage : was
Fremont , street wharf, < but the unfeel
ing state board of harbor commission
ers razed that dock, and Finnigan had!
to seek a new, place. He went to Main
street- wharf yesterday, but his luck'
had changed. ; - • < .
r On . the_jiew.-territory - Finnigan fell
asleep.; ; leaving -his 'line with its suc
