BANDITS ARE BUSY
NEAR JUSTICE HALL
Wagon Loaded With Distillery
Products Stolen From Ne\v
Tenderloin in Daylight
In the shadow of the hall of justice,
in the newly created tenderloin dis
trict, Mason and Eddy streets, bandits
make no pretense of waiting for night
fall, but apparently glory in the idea
of daylight robbery. Probably the
bolder deed of this kind was the theft
at 2 :3 i' o'clock Saturday afternoon of
a wagon loaded with disiitlery prod
ucts, \u25a0;..: he property of the California
transfer company. 1419 Ellis street. 1
The wagon, standing in front of the
Poodle Inn, one of the newer of the
new district resorts, was loaded with
one barrel of whisky, of a brand known
as "lraitation,*' a barrel of alcohol and
a nve gallon demijohn of whisky, the
brand unknown. Its loss was discov
ered by James H. Mason, the driver of
the wagon, within a few minutes after
its disappearance, but the wagon and
team were not recovered until late on
Saturday night, when it was found at
the corner of Twenty-third street and
Potrero avenue— empty. The loss is
estimated by the transfer company at
..William Itsell. ISS2 O'FArrell street,
was held up at the corner of Eddy and
Taylor streets at 1 :30 o'clock Sunday
morning by three thugs, who after ad
ministering a severe beating to their
victim decamped with watch, chain
and n^oney to the value of $70.
Two armed tli ugs intercepted Walter
Smith. 1563 Eddy street, in Eddy, be
tween Larkin and Polk; at 3:15 o'clock
Sunday morning, and after beating
him into a state of insensibility stole
jewelry valued at $125 and $75. The
thieves were frightened away by Mil
ton Elliott, night clerk at the Hotel
Brule. who gave chase for several
blocks, but was outdistanced by the
fleeing highwayman.

COUNTRY CLUB MAY
LEASE TROCADERO
New Organization Planned ;to
Convert Beautiful Park
Into Athletic Grounds
Trocadero. the attractive : park of
19 acres at the corner of Nineteenth
avenue and Sloat boulevard, is to be
come the home of & nfew country club,
provided plans now in the making do
not miscarry. /^ ' -.-\u25a0*,.
Mrs. Charles A. Hawkins, whose home
is across the avenue" from. Trocadero,
has been largely instrumental in pro
moting- the Outdoor club, the name of
the. new organization. A meeting' was
to have been held at her home yester
day afternoon for the purpose of com
pleting: the organization and discuss
ing- available sites for the club. The
weather was so disagreeable, however,
that it was decided to postpone the
meeting until next Sunday afternoon.
Negotiations are already under way
for the leasing of Trocadero. but noth
ing definite will be attempted until the
new club is fully organised. Another
site is also under consideration, but
Trocadero is looked upon with greater
favor because of the natural beauty
and the accessibility of the property.
George \V. Green, the owner of the
property, and his father spent many
years" in converting the land, which
lies in a natural gully, into a beauti
ful park.. Under. their care a fine col
lection of tropical plants has been
propagated. A small grove of euca
lyptus trees surrounds the property and
shelters the gardens in the floor of the
gulch. . . : . .;-." \u25a0'\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0.
Trocadero was established as a home
and It became noted as one of the most
attractice villas in the vicinity of San
Francisco. In recent years, however,
it has been conducted as a resort, but
a few weeks ago the lessees closed the
place. Mrs. Hawkins then became act
ive and interested a number of lovers
of outdoor life in ; the proposition of
forming a club and securing Trocadero.
Tennis, handball and other outdoor
games could be played on the property
and arrangements could probably be
made with the Ingleside country club
near by for the we of the links for
those members of the club who have
a fondness for golf. I \u25a0 : "

To Resist Attempt of New Jer

[Special Dispatch id The Call] :
•;\u25a0 : CHICAGO^ Feb. 27.— 1t became evi
dent today that regrardiess of the num
ber of - indictments returned in New
Jersey against the packers, the real
fißht, both federal and state, will be
conducted in Chicago. ;
f| The packers will fight the New^Jer
sey-indictments hard. They will con
tend in the first place that they can not
be extradited. :The Illinois statutes
provide only for the extradition, of
"fugitives from justice," and the courts
have decided that a man who has never
been In- a state can not: be a fugitive
from the justice of that state. ; The
packers contend that - they have not
been in : New Jersey since the actions
complained of in the indictment. /r
The indictment, however, mentions a
meeting held in Jersey City March 1;
1908, at which they are alleged to have
been present and planned the monopo
listic acts which are said to have been,
since committed. :; ; ; , '\u25a0:,\u25a0 \u25a0 '\u25a0'

meeting they will ; be. compelled . -to
comply, strictly with;the,.proyisions.of
the act, which force them to convince
the judge of an Illinois court ? a.nd the
governor of Illinois that they have suf
ficient evidence to {warrant Indictment.
* ; Men^ in Chicago thoroughly familiar
with the situation, both as : friends and
as prosecutors of the packers, 'believe
