what of an elopement with the soft
pedal on.
Last night tiie couple returned to the
city and established themselves* at the
Hotel Victoria in Bush street, where
they admitted their renewed romance.
It seemed early in April that there
would be no wedding bells to ring
forth the happiness of Miss Van Vorst
and Curtis Redfern. Their happy en-
gagement was reported by friends to
have come to a sad conclusion! The
difficulties were described by learned
young friends of the couple as prl-
marily psychological. There was no _
harsh jar, merely a break in the con-
tlnuity of affection.
The young railroadman found .that
there was a terminal on his heart, line

Company Will Tax Subscribers
Able to Pay More
LOS AXGELES. May 9. — According to
a decision reached by the Home tele
phone company, rates of service will
be increased to such subscribers as
the company thinks should pay a"high
er rate, In spite of the referendum
petition recently filed. Any one who
objects to the increase will have to
contest the matter in the courts. The
company will then attack the referen
dum on the ground that In fixing: the
rates the council was acting In a ju
diciary capacity and not in a legis
lative manner and thatthe referendum
to suspend the operation of the ordi
nance fixing the rate -can have no
effect on the judicial decision of the
council that the rate should- be in
creased. - •

LONDON; MayiS.-^AH white men in
the Congo Free,' : State, are interested
in w the trial for libel of two * American
missionaries. Rev. \u25a0-; William Morrison
and Rev. W..H. Sheppafd, which will
begin at Leopold ville- May 20. • This
case is ; expected:. to i be' a : test^between
the Belgian government and therAmer
iean missionaries, .who;have long* made
themselves a thorn T .in its flesh ! by, their
charges :of ' maladministration and:op
pression of the natives. .'
'The suit; is brought by one of- the
concessionaire companies, called \u25a0'- the
Kasai trust, which has a , monopoly of
rubber gathering, in the Kasai reglon."
It claims $20,000 damages from each
missionary for "calumnious denuncia-
The Belgium' government holds half
of the Kasailtrust' stock and a majority
of its directors; are Belgian* officers, so
the, suit may be< considered practically
oneof, the Belgian government against
the missionaries.
The missionaries say that the officials
levy; upon the natives oppressive taxes
to be; paid in rubber; that whole vil
lages, including women and children,
are Impressed by the soldiers for gath
ering the rubber, they are often com
pelled tp '. travel- "many miles to the
rubber forests and "' sleep" there for
more than, a week under .unhealthy
conditions ; that they are of ten cruelly
punished for failure to fulfill the. tasks
proposed, and that a larger portion of
their time is taken forgathering "these
taxes, and that they are unable to
cultivate crops- and raise_ food neces
sary for their support.
Messrs. Morrison and Sheppard are
members jof the American Presbyterian
mission. The^American consul, W. H.
Handley, has been instructed by the
government* to go to Leopoldville to
watch the trial, which will be con
ducted by ; Belgian officials. \u25a0
, About \u25a0 20 American missionaries* are
stationed in the Congo and. as nearly
all of them have made the same charges
against the administration, the out
come of the suit will have an im
portant bearing upon their future there.

This stock was bought for the pro-
posed department store in the Oaa r ei-

corner of Seventh and Market: streets.
Now this project has been abandoned
,and the stock must be sacrificed.
Today the women of San Francisco
can buy almost any kind of merchan-
dise that they would expect to find in
i a department store at close to half
price. The most sensational prices San
Francisco has ever known rule- on wash
goods, muslins, sheetings and domes-
tics of all kinds. '.women's cloaks and
suits, waists, skirts, silks, dress good-?,

stock was bought when Redlick Bros,
contemplated a bijr department store
In the Odd Fellows* building to be
erected at Seventh and Market streets.
The giving up of this enterprise leaves
Redlick -Bros., with this vast quantity
of goods 'on their ' hands. - And" more
is stored In- warehouses here and Is on
the way. from the east. Now Svery bit
of this goods Is going to be disposed
of regardless of cost. Therefore, much
of this merchandise will be sold for
