ISLAND LIFE TOO MUCH FOR CLERKS _ One Goes Mad and the Other Kills Himself in Tropical Jungle Colonel Bellinger's Assistants Fail to Stand Strain of Philippine Labors When Lieutenant Colonel Bellinger left here to take up the duties of con structing quartermaster at Corregidor he was accompanied by two clerks, the colonel representing the authority and the clerks the practical experience. On the last voyage home of the Sheridan J. McCarthy, the clerk who supplied the expert knowledge in construction matters, was brought home under re etraint. His mind had given way. In the hold of the Sheridan when the troopship docked yesterday was the body of Joseph Teeter, Bellinger's other rlerk, who committed suicide some months ago. McCarthy is said to have recovered his mental balance. Teeter's case was peculiarly sad. He was a man of great ability and well liked by all with whom lie came in contact. Soon after his ar rival Teeter's health broke down and the doctors told him that he had con tracted tuberculosis. Assured that the diagnosis was correct. Teeter went into the jungle and killed himself. Two more clerks have been sent out to Bellinger, who is said to be getting homesick for the cool breezes of San Krancisoo bay. JANXEY'S BODY imOUGHT Hl»Ml' The army transport Sheridan, which arrived yesterday, brought home from the Philippines the body of Second Ueutenant Clarence M. Janney of the Twelfth infantry, whose suicide at Fort McKinley last March was an army sen sation. The certificate accompanying the body gives the causp of death as "gunshot wound in the head, self-in flicted." The trouble that ended in Janney's death began at the house of Lieutenant Colbne-I R. M. Ames, where Janney and his wife were guests at dinner. Janney discovered his champagne cooler on the oolonei's sideboard. Mrs. Janney, he found, had presented it to the colonel. There followed a big row, in which Janney called his wife a liar. The trouble simmered down and Janney went home. Colonel Ames accompanied Mrs. Jan ney home later and as they entered the Janney quarters Janney placed a revolver to his head and blew out his brains. A military investigation fol lowed and a verdict of suicide was re turned. » Mrs. Janney was Miss Madeline Me- Kissick and was married to and di vorced from Pedar S. Brugruwre before the married Janney.

Brown, manager of the factory branch of the Regral motor car com pany in this city, has received word that the Regral Piugger. which last year so successfully made a trip of 4.031.8 miles from New York to this city, started on April 11 on a 5,000' mile around the circle trip. The route in cludes all the larger cities in the states passed through, going from Detroit to New York by way of Buffalo, thence to Kansas City and back by way of Chicago. After its trip to this coast last year the car was sent on a tour of the country for demonstrating pur poses, and the 5,000 mile trip is a still further test. The local factory branch has sold a 30 horsepower, four cylinder Regal touring car, fully equipped, to Dr. M. O. Austin of this city. B. S. Bingham, district manager of the Regal motor car company, left last Friday for a 10 days' trip to Portland and Seattle, where he will establish agencies. According to Charles T. Jeffery. gen eral manager of Thomas B. Jeffery & manufacturers lof the Rambler cars, many auto- I mobile accidents may be attributed to the poorly adjusted brakes of the cars. "Poorly adjusted brakes are dangerous, but are often tolerated be cause of the difficulty of adjustment," writes Jeffery to L. H. Bill, manager of the local branch of the company. "In the new Rambler the brake adjustment may be accomplished by lifting' the aluminum floor board and turning a thumbscrew by hand. It is in the little things that you find, evidence of careful workmanship and quality. The best cars today are those whose parts are littej accurately, and little things are included *for the comfort and con venience of the owner. All Rambler parts are required to fit within one thousandth of an inch. Every part is subjected to countless inspections, and with the tests through which every part must pass we are sure of a perfect car when it leaves the factory." _ ___ •\u25a0•- Rambler j Ha* Strong: Brakes Hugo Muller has received word from the Premier factory which, says: "There + are very few cities I of Importance in this country whose officers are not fast becom ing the good friends of. automobiles, and the majority of the chief executives are owners themselves. The latest ad dition to this list is Mayor Crump of Memphis. Term., who has purchased the largest car which he could find repre sented in this city, a six cylinder Pre mier touring car of 60 horsepower, with accommodations for seven passengers. Mayor Crump stated that he was de sirous of getting a car which not only would carry a large party but would carry them as fast as desired." Officials Uuylticr Premier Cars Rene J. Marx, coast manager of the Rjenault Freres selling branch, reports k an exceedingly I good week in the sales of the high French mo , tor cars. Now that the touring season is at hand the demand for the product of the factory he represents has been In creasing. Among the sales reported" are a 25-35 horsepower, four cylinder Renault touring 1 car to Leroy Nlchol, and a 50-60 horsepower six cylinder limou sine and also a touring car to J. Levy. Reports Good Sale* J. D. Williams of New York,- an ex porter, who travels extensively, has re turned home from South America. He reports that he saw many auto mobiles in opera tion and that the numoer of American motor cars is increasing. Referring to his trip recently he spoke particularly of meeting General F. M. de Souza Augiar, former mayor of Rio de Ja neiro, who took him riding about that city in a seven passenger Franklin touring car. Williams said tha/ they not only toured the city, but went for many miles up the mountains near the city. "I saw several air cooled Frank lins in Rio de Janeiro and others in Buenos Aires," Williams reported. Franklin Cara In South America C. C. Eichelberger, manager of the Pacific coast branch of the Firestone . tire -and . rubber company, has re ceived a letter , from the general offices of the com pany at Akron, 0.. that they have closed a long term lease for the premises on the northeast corner of Van Ness ave nue and Fulton street. Plans are being approved for a three atory con crete structure of the mission type, which will also have a large basement.

THE SaS FR^ FIRE CHIEFS WIN PARTIAL VICTORY Murasky Restrains Appointees of Present Fire Board * From Taking Office Without • finally determining their rights Judge Murasky yesterday grant ed thi three battalion chiefs of the fire department who objecteJ to the attempt of the fire commission to remove- them a few weeks ago the right to hold office against the claimants until the question of title is determined. This amounts to a temporary victory, although their petition for an injunc tion against the flre commission was refused. The Judge's order established these plaintiffs as de facto officers and denied the right of the commission's appointees to interfere with them Jn the exercise of their duties, but at the same time held that the commission could not be interfered with in making any appointments or taking any action within its rights under the charter. James Layden, M. J. Farley and S. P. Russell arc ths three battalion chiefs who have fought the flre department case to the prasent time. Thece were seven plaintiffs originally, but: four withdrew from the suit. The defend ants who have been restrained from taking: office as battalion chiefs under appointment by the present commis sion are Michael O'Brien, John Maxwell and W. A. Cook. The suit sustained by Layden, Farley and Russell asked for an injunction against- both the fire commission and the new appointees, and was based on thi contention that the plaintiffs held office under civil service appointment. In refusing to grant an injunction | against the board of flre commissioners j JuJge Murasky said: "Courts of equity will not interfere with boards of municipal corporations acting within the scope of their pow ers and in matters pertaining to tlpir jurisdiction. The appointment of bat talion chiefs is a matter within the jurisdiction of the board, and any error that may be made in the method of ap pointment can be reviewed, so far as any action against the board is con cerned, only on certiorari, or in some Other statutory proceedings. The ap plication for an injunction against the board of fire commissioners must be denied." '! GRANDDAUGHTER OF POET WEDS JUDGE Mrs, Dana Bryant Netker and D.
