Thirsty Residents Oppose the
Saloon Restriction Bill of
Senator Works
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
WASHINGTON, June Senator
Works of California is looming very
large In Washington Just now, not only
because of his efforts to lecture the
senate Into good behavior, but because
of his campaign to reform the district
of Columbia. The senator's bill re
stricting the number of saloons in the
national capital to 100 and their loca
tion to the business districts has
created a storm of opposition which Is
not confined to the members of con
gress who feel that In the warm
weather It would be a hardship to walk
from Capitol hill to. the business dis
trict to get a drink.'
"Differences of opinion between the
commissioners- of the district and Sen
ator" Works over the merit of the
Works bill cropped out at the meeting
of the district committee this morning.
The commissioners recently made an
adverse report on Works* bill, and
while Engineer Commissioner Judson
was before the committee today he
said that the people of the district,
generally, are not In favor of the bill.
"I do not think It Is for them to de
termine," replied Works In substance.
"This Is the national capital and be
longs to all the people of the country.
It is a question for, them to determine
through their representatives here."' :
The men of the district do not take
kindly to the suggestion that they
should have ho say In the number of
saloons they may have. Benato'r Works,
however. toltTthe commissioners plain
ly that he was not deterred by their
adverse report, and that he would
make a fight for the enactment of his
saloon bill. He believes that the 500
saloons In the district are really more
than- should be allowed. -People who
live here, however, insist that ilf they
can not have the ballot they should at
least have their say about saloons.

Search of Robbers, Who
Elude Pursuers
[Special Diipatch to The Call]
STIRLING CITY, June 23.—After
cutting the telegraph and tele
phone wires leading to all out
side points, robbers dynamited
the three vaults of the Stirling City
tank at an early hour this morning and
made good their escape after obtaining
approximately $7,000 In coin. " ■».".-
Although hundreds of men have
taken part in the man hunt, scouring
the mountains near by, the dynamiters
have not been apprehended.
The only clew that gives promise of
results was a report received late this
afternoon that two men heavily armed
had been seen hurrying along the trail
leading to the Quincy road, a highway
that since the construction of the
Western Pacific sees little traffic. A
posse was sent out at once.
Three suspects, were taken Into cus
tody at Orovllle today, but after in
vestigation were released.
The detonation of the explosion
aroused many persons, but as there has
been heavy blasting in the vicinity, no
attention was paid to it. The first in
timation of the robbery * came this
morning when the wrecked interior of
the bank was seen. Little damage was
done to the building.
Following the robber?-, the thieves
broke into a section house of .the. Butte
county railroad and obtained a gravity
car. It Is believed that this was a
blind to throw the officers off the trail
and that after taking the car.?%nd con
cealing It the men struck across coun
try toward the "Western" Pacific.£ ''%*&■
"Sheriff Webber came here' this morn
ing. He was Joined on the way by
deputy sheriffs.
Mills of the Diamond match com
pany were closed that employes might

were down It wfts necessary that, a
special engine be obtained and a run
made to Chlco to Inform the authori
ties. The crime was carefully timed and
was committed Just before the Diamond
match company's pay day. Major A.
