Dive Keepers Accuse Sandy
McNaughton of "Squealing"
to the Grand Jury
Dave Becker Crosses His Heart
and Swears Fund Was
for Attorney
made to have it appear that he had
cognizance of the cafe fund. This re
port was traced to inimical interests in
the tenderloin, and Fiekert lost no time
In beginning the exposure.
The search for the inner purposes of
the cafe funJ led the] grand jury to
Eumnjon a long list of witnesses. It
also brought to light a tenderloin
divided against itsejf, with Sandy Mc-
Naughton against the crowd. The
finger of accusation was pointed to
ward Sandy by his fellow cafemen.
Sandy, it was charged, had squealed.
Sandy denieJ it. but there Is. no mis
taking the open rupture . among the
hitherto solid gentry. W»"M
As the fiscal agent of the special
fund, Becker explained its purposes
yesterday at great length- He said:
'To me it appears that a whole lot of
trouble has been stirred up on account
of the district attorney's office and
others in authority -*elng misinformed
as to the nature of the fund, which I
.freely admit I undertook to collect.
The tale bearers evidently carried the
story that I was raising a fund with
\u25a0which to try to purchase protection of
some kind or other when I really was
only asking other cafe keeprs to join
with me in a movement to employ an
attorney to appear before the board of
supervisors and ask that the limit for
stopping of music be extended from 1
o'clock until 3 o'clock in the morning.
"This Idea came to me about five
weeks ago. when I was talking with
Frank Dunn of Dunn brothers about
how quiet the cafe business had been.
Dunn and I concluded that if we could
get the muFlc limit extended two hours
we could make unore money. We
talked over the" beet way to get the
limit extended and decided that I
should see what the police commis
sioners would do in the matter. Ac
cordingly I appeared before the police
board and was informed that the com
missioners were powerless to act in
the matter and that the proper thing
would be to ask the board of supervi
sors to amend the present ordinance
co as to giv« us the two extra hours.
"As such an extension would benefit
all cafe owners. Dunn and 1 decided
that the best thing would be to have an
attorney present our case to the super
visors, and we also decided that all cafe
owners should help bear the expense of
securing an attorney. I offered to give
$250 and put the money up. Dunn put
\u25a0up a like amount, and Ben Schiff also
put up his check for $250. Schiff and
Dunn asked zne to collect the money and
arrange for an attorney. I then called
on Levy at the Mirror, and he asked me
to call "later, after he had time to talk
to his brother. I saw Pratt and Tier
ney, and they said that business was
pretty quiet, but that if they could ar
range for the money they would rhelp
out. When I called at stack's his part
ner told me to call later and they would
let me know. I" saw Spider Kelly just
outside, his place, and when I put the
proposition to him he threw his hands
In the air and said that he would not be
'stuck up' by any, one. . I tried to show
him where the extension wonld benefit
him as well as the rest of us, but he
could not see it.
"I started out to see Sandy McNaugh
ton and met him on Eddy street near
the side entrance to Newman's. I ex
plained what we were trying to, do and
h«* put me off by saying^ that he would
have to see his partner, Jackman. I
called again on McNaughton at his sa
loon end could not find him in. Jack
rsan #as there, and said he knew noth
ing about helping out the fund. I
then got McNaughton on the phone, and
he stalled around for a while and said
he did not care to run after 1 o'clock
and had decided not to aid in placing
the matter before the supervisors.
"About this time I saw that the ma
jority of the cafe owners were not
willing to help out and I gave the mat
ter up. I gave Dunn back his money
and returned the check to the Schiff
brothers. That is everything I know
anout any fund being raised afong the
cafe owners and it was for a legiti
mate proposition of sending an attor
ney to represent us before the super
visors in asking for an amended ordi
nance to give us a chanc« to make*
some money out of a business that hsa
been very dull from a money stand
point for us. Everything in connection
with the raising of the fund was open
and above board. If there was any
other fund for any other purpose I
know nothing of it.
"My Idea is lhat some one heard of
my gathering this money and. not
knowing the purpose for which; it was
collected, jumped at conclusions and
reported that money was being raised
for som«j other purpose..: I stand will
ing to answer any questions'in regard
to this matter and ask. that. every pos
sible investigation be made' of the af
fair. I have nothing to conceal and
defy any one to chow where I have
contributed a single cent to any fund
for police protection or for protection
from any other source."

Town Marshal vjof- Mountain
View Suedby^ Wife -Thought r
.., .. Dead 21 Years y>
Clears Himself and Is Granted
Divorce; Remarried and
Had Eight Children
[SpccicJ Dispatch to The Call}
SAN 'JOSE, Sept. 16.— After living
wlth'Ws' second '.wife" 17 years" under
the Impression k that his first wife was
dead .Richard C. Walts, .-marshal -of
Mountain . View, discovered .recently
that spouse No.' 1 was alive* and quite
willing to make , trouble for him.' .
This came to light today, in -Judge
Welch's department of ' the
court, when ah action for. maintenance"
started by Mrs,. Mary gpece Waits was
heard.'- ; ."- ' \u25a0'\u25a0' '.'\u25a0''
-Walts'. told, the court* that 22 years
ago he came to California and within
a year wrote to his wife; who. was ; : l'eft
with her father. John Recce of .Craig,
Mo., to come ; to ; his ; home," \u25a0then; in
Franklin, Sacramento.^county. ,i No re-:
ply, he said. \u25a0 was received '; to . the first
four letters; he j wrote and • then .one
came : from - his ' : wife's "- father,? stating
that Mrs. , Waits and : her" llttle> child
were both dead. =He urged his' son In
law, so it was stated; to" send money
for the funeral expenses of the wife
and child. - .
Waits, then in the employ of A. C.
Bloom, near Sacramento; later began
paying attention to a sister of his em
ployer, and a letter-was sent to Recce,
asking him to substantiate his son in
law's story of the death of his wife."
Againr~so It was stated, the father in
law- wrote that his daughter was dead.
Waits did .not marry, the woman he
was courting then, but in 1892 did
marry for a second tife, and now has a
family, of eight children. "
On the showing made today Judge
Welch denied the petition for main
tenance and on a cross
granted Walts -a divorce from his^first
wife on the ground of desertion. Dis
trict Attorney Fee, Justice Beverly
of Mountain View and other officials
who have'known Waits for years give
him an excellent reputation.
The action was defended by Attorney
John D. WHlard of San Francisco. ~
