Chase Narrows Down to Hunt for Richard Meditth Admissions Made by Brothers Shed New Light on the Bullion Case Police Believe Same Band Im= plicated in Gold Theft and Opium Cases note and carried it to Smith. It read es follows: "I ;ust saw Mrs. Smith and she says if you know anything and are liable to get 10 or 15 years, tell it or you will be an old man when you get out." Smith was noncommittal when he re ceived the note. He insisted that he knew of no crime and that he was not afraid of being sent to Jail. When the detectives raided the rooms of the Smiths in the Hayston apart ment house at Sixth and Howard streets they found a small vice which was used to hold the gold bars, a chisel, a Eet of rasps, an alcohol lamp, two pieces of charcoal and two small cruci bles, as well as a mallet and a small hammer. There was quite a bit of gold sticking to the tools, indicating that they had been used to reduce the bars to filing's. Smith insisted at the time of his ar rest that the gold bars had been given him by a man named John Gibson to bring to this city and convert into nugget jewelry. That Smith really did try to make nugget jewelry was indi cated by his outfit- He admitted to the detectives that he could not get enough heat to melt the bullion. In Mrs. Smith's effects was a bunch of keys, several of which were skeleton keys such as would open any ordinary lock. There was also an identification tag on the ring requesting the finder to notify the Union registry company of the Marlon building, Seattle, Wash., of the keys belonging to No. 5306. No such company is now known in Seattle, but the tag tends to prove that the Smiths were for some time residents of Seattle. On the ring there was also a he*r opener, which had evidently come from Montana. A full box of cartridges indicated that Smith was prepared to f.pht if caught in his rooms. Some racetrack programs were found In the room, the date on one of them being December 6. Smith admitted that he had been a frequent visitor at Emeryville, but said he had not been very successful in picking the winners. When questioned about his real name Smith denied that he was Leahy and said he had never heard the name be fore. He also held that he was never known as William Matlock. He sug gested that the Seattle story attempting to identify him as Matlock was based on misinformation as William Matlock \u25a0was the name of a senator in Seattle •while there was a son, Wes Matlock, who had owned two papers in Alaska.

OXYGEN IS THE ONLY NATURAL DISINFECTANT Deep Breathing Destroys Im purities in the Body Oxygen is the only natural disinfec tant. It should be taken freely. The only way we can take free oxygen into the blood is by breathing. Breathe deeply. Practise not only chest breath ing, says the "Family Doctor," but ab dominal breathing. Keep the blood well supplied with oxygen. This will prevent the diseases that are a result of an excess of carbon in the blood. It will prevent rheumatism and skin diseases, as well as consumption and lung diseases. Every one should have some latent lung to fall back upon in case of pneumonia and consumption, and deep breathing practiced in mod' eratlon several times a day is an ex cellent hygienic practice. It will do more toward preventing disease, both chronic and acute, than all of the anti toxins and antiseptics that were ever invented.

SKATING PARTY IS SOCIAL SUCCESS Hobble Skirts Are Banished for Night of Fun on Rollers In spite of other social attractions last night the second meeting at Dreamland rink of the Tuesday Night skating assembly, under the leader ship of Mrs. Carroll Buck, was a bril liant affair. A good floor and music helped to restore the confidence lost after a year's lack of practice in skat ing. Every .one arrived early and stayed late. Hobble skirts were banished to the background and last year's pleated, ones were brought out again. As a result there were fewer mishaps, the gliding steps were longer and easier, and twostepping and waltzing speedily became the order of the evening. In the grand march many new and intricate figures were Introduced. The march was led by Mrs. James Follis, Miss Julia Langhorne, Miss Martha Cal houn and Miss Freda Smith. They rank among the most accomplished woman skaters in this city. j Mrs. Carroll Buck received her guests at the head of the short flight of steps leading down to the s^ating floor.

The latest tribute to the simple fare comes from the Flora Stevenson committee in Edinburgh, who for the past few months have been feeding necessitous school children on porridge and milk at midday. At first the typi cal slum inhabitant turned from the wholesome food with disgust and loath ing, and demanded a cup of tea or a bowl of soup with Its ticket, but, hap pily, things are now changed, and with properly regulated stomachs the pupils are swallowing; their porridge with avidity.' "And no wonder!" the Edin burgh Dispatch exclaims. "A diet which could produce such a race of Scottish stalwarts as figure In Scot land's history for the past three or four centuries has surely something to recommend it."

HOLIDAY GIFTS Unequaled Values in Select PERSIJZN and TUIUQISH THE RING ORIENTAL RUG CO. 372*374 Sutter Street, Below Stockton RAILWAY DECLINES TO SUBMIT RATES Although Not Aided by South ern Pacific Commission Will • - > Announce Findings Jobbers of Los Angeles to Know Schedule for San Joaquin Valley Tho- railroad commission will an nounce its decision in the San Joaquin valley rat© case before the end of the present year. This was stated defin itely during yesterday's meeting of the board. This case is the one In which the jobbers of Los Angeles have asked that their freight tariffs from the south be cut. It la their desire to extend their scope of trade further north In the San Joaquin valley. It was the intention of the railroad commission to allow the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific to submit a proposal which might be satisfactory alike to the shippers of: Los Angeles and San Francisco. Word , came from the. two railroads yesterday that they would decline to offer a new schedule as a basis of agreement. The commission thereupon determined to settle the con troversy without delay. • The new rates that the railroads de clined to submit were asked for by the commission two weeks ago to be used in assisting the commission in reach ing its decision. It was hoped by the members of the board that an increase in rates between this city and Stock ton, letlng the present rates from Los Angeles to San Joaquin valley points remain, would equalize matters. The story published exclusively In The Call last week, in which the plans of the commission were told, aroused the local merchants, and it is said was the cause of the refusal by the railroads to file the new tabulations. The members of the commission will remain in the city until the end of the year preparing the decisjon. The Kern county board of trade flle'J a complaint with the cdmmlssion yes terday, asking that the Sunset West ern, a Southern Pacific line, be com pelled to erect a station at Fellows, and for an Improvement in the present train service along that line. The commission refused to allow the Southern Pacific's request to withdraw certain rates between this city, Sacra mento, Oakland and other points to places in eastern California. The new rates were filed by the Southern Pa cific a -month ago and are to become effective December 25. They were made for the purpose of offsetting the Increase that will be caused when the new Nevada rates ordered by the in terstate commission go into effect.

WOMEN ARE BARRED FROM BURKE TRIAL Curious Throng Is Excluded When Lv Etta Smith Bomb Question Is Buried in Maze of Theological Argument HARRY DAVIDS [Specie! Dispatch to The Call] SANTA ROSA, Dec. 13. — Theosophical quibbling, with some passing discus sion of the religious philosophies of Hindustan and stray groplngs Into the finite testified to by Lv Etta Smith in the trial of Dr. Willard P. Burke to day, gave to the case the atmosphere of an abtruse argument of eminent di vines. Also it effectually eliminated for the time being all thought of the prosaic and materialistic question of whether or not the physician threw the dynamite bomb. Such was the character of the testi mony that Judge Seawell ordered the sheriff this afternoon to exclude from the courtroom all youths and young women. Women from a large portion of the audience and long before the doors of the courtroom are opened they are banked against them, ready to rußh in and obtain the seats well to the front. ': \u25a0It was a very learned proceeding, somewhat startling and still more em barrassing. The ordinarily Indecent was given a setting -of nobility and virtue which the common mind could scarcely grasp. The sin of sins was picked up from the gutter and, placed in the halls of honor. It was deco rated, frilled and flossed with beliefs, theories and views and all with such serious intent that at the conclusion it was difficult to recognize it in the same evil shape at which the ancients threw stones and at which the world has hooted and howled for 2,000 years. TRY TO MEASURE EMOTIOX The ground upon which the thologi cal argument arose was that the jury should know the extent of the emotions and sentiments of Lv Etta Smith at the time of her relations with Doctor Burke. Lv Etta already had prepared the way for sensational beliefs by de claring that she did not look upon these relations as immoral, but some of the spectators nearly Jumped from their seats when Attorney Leppo, for the defense, hurled at her the follow ing question: "Did you ever state to any. one that your child was of immac ulate conception?" "Not in the sense in which you phrase that term," she replied. "What sense do you mean?" he asked. "To make myself clear," she replied. ; "I would have to explain the religious philosophies of the Hindus." "Pray proceed, madam," said Leppo. There was a touch of weariness in his voice. Whereupon the witness explained. She declared that the Hindus regarded one class of love as being on a "higher plane." This plane appeared to be a far different one from the level of or dinary mortals and presumably held virtues which recked not of conven tions. RELIGIOUS MIXDED SHIVER She illustrated her point with biblical allusions and comparisons, which gave the religious minded thei shivers. And the sum total of her explanations was that she had regarded her relations with Doctor Burke in this light, being led to that comforting state of mind by his preachments to her. "And how do you regard him now?" queried Leppo. Lv Etta Smith became entirely woman. Her eyes flashed and she shot out her answer with vehem ence: "By the way he has tried to Ue out of the responsibility." she declared, "I have considerable doubt about him having been my spiritual affinity.

The attorneys for the defense made a j strong plea to be allowed to enter into the question of spiritual fatherhood, but the court would have none of it. The Hindus had been allowed to sneak in somewhat under protest, but Judge Seawell failed tevsee the advisability of delving into the mystic realms. LETTER MEXTIOXS FRITSCH The lawyers satisfied themselves, however, by the introduction of the fol lowing letter written by Lv Etta Smith as being particularly enlightening on the extent of the sentiments and emo tions of the witness: Dear Doctor Father: You dear old doctor, and so you have not been practicing deception on me, that Is only negatively, all. this time. You have just been your kind old self and I have misunder- « stood. Well, now let us under stand each other if we can or I can. It is all right, and I thank j'ou very much.

PROFESSOR AGAIX BOBS UP All the evidence of this character was for the purpose of proving one of the main points of the defense, which is to the effect that Miss Smith believed her self in love with several unsuspecting persons and that Doctor Burke was un fortunate enough to be placed in the category of her spiritual affections To strengthen this they tried to show that while attending the University of Cali fornia she fell In love with a professor of English there, that is, telepathlcally. i "We will show your honor." said Leppo, "that this gentleman was en tirely unaware of the affection of the witness, and that later she discovered that she had been in error." Judge Seawell would not permit the unfolding of the tale of the mental short circuiting to be introduced as evidence. Thereupon another letter was introduced as evidence. It was on a more material scale and ' (FRENCH REPUBLIC PROPERTY) ** 11 Natural Alkaline Watcff JI ffl^^a Unexcelled for table use.

Miss Smith said that Doctor Burke had given It to her to read, her understand ing- being that It was meant for her personally, and for that reason sh© did not return it to the physician. So much did the sentiments appeal to her that she kept it by her to reread cm more favorable opportunities. ' -" lo\t:s are ruled out The defense wished to show that be sides being- In love with the professor she was in love with Wilson Fritsch. the lecturer, and had openly avowed her affection for him to various per-/ sons at the sanatorium, but here aga?*^ the court refused to dally with the loves of the witness except as they were materlat to the case. During the afternoon session she was systematically pl!ed with questions re garding her friendship with other men. She denied all allegations emphatically and absolutely. The defense made the first publics declaration of Its claim that Lv Etta Smith is being actuated in her mo tives for testifying as she has done by the fact of her having civil claims against Doctor Burke for the support of her child. A letter was Intro duced, written by Attorney Charles M. Xaylor. in which he asked Burks to give Miss Smith $300 for temporary requirements and $250 as attorney fees. Miss Smith said she knew nothing of the letter, but had g!ven Xaylor gen eral authority to work for her best Interests.
