Gallagher Indignant Over Tac

erviaor George Gallagher, chair
man of the street committee, laid down,
the law to the Ocean Shore railway
and the E. B. & *A. L. Stone company
yeaterday, when representatives of the
railway petitioned the committee to
rescind Its former action ordering the
removal of a spur track at Twelfth
and Mission streets leading from the
Ocean Shore tracks to the rock bunkers
of the Stone company.
Delay of the supervisors' order was j
secured recently, when the question I
wm taken to court and application !
i ;ado for an injunction. Efforts were !
s'so made by interested persons to in
fluence members of the committee to
rescind the order, with the result that |
Gallagher announced that the order
would stand as made, and that nothing
further would be done unless author
ized representatives of the improve
ment club and others who had origin
a!ly ohje.-ted to the spur track as a
nuisance should ask the committee,
"When you can bring here the pastor
of the church, representatives of the
improvement organization and
I who made a showing that the I
tracks were a nuisance and urged their
rrmovr.l: then, and not until then, will
this affair be reopened," said Gallagher,
r-ommittee can not be juggled
"r foAled with."
"Will you allow President Bradley
ot the Ocean Shore to explain this mat- j
asked the railroad's attorney.
' Mr Bradley is undoubtedly a very
lent man and has made an ex
■ r i!ent president of the road." replied
Gallagher. "He will no doubt make a
spew h, but with all due respect
to him I must say that we have had
"nougli of this. The subject is closed."

Student Held for Sanity Test

Engineer, Victim of Island Lure, Tells Honolulu
Police Detective Trails Him
Feeling that there Were more oppor
tunities for a young man in the Ha

aged with college life. Herbert Roy
Schulz, a civil engineering student in
Stanford university, registered from
Ijos Angeles, left college last month
and went to Honolulu. Several days
ago he appeared at the island police
station and demanded protection from
a secret service man named Ward, who,
he declared, had been following him
eight months.
The authorities are holding Schulz
pending an examination for his sanity.
They believe his mind lias been weak
ened by overstudy.
Schulz has stated that he had been
followed constantly by the secret serv
ice man. A search by the police re
vealed an automatic revolver on his
person.
The lurf> of the tropics seems to be
the reason for Schulz' leaving the uni

PASSENGERS KICK
ON LINER'S FOOD
City of Panama's Guests Also!
File Complaint Charging
Discrimination in Fare
Passengers who arrived in San Fran
cisco yeatero-ay from the isthmus on
the Pacific Mail liner City of Panama
signed a petition, wl#ch they will send
to the interstate commerce commis
sion, objecting to reduced fares for em
ployes of the canal commission and
complaining , of the quality of the food
served on the ship. The petition also
includes a criticism of the ancient and
inadequate equipment with which the
ship's surgeon was supplied, and in
this, indictment the surgeon, Dr. C. R.
Elliott, joins.
The regular, fare from Panama is
$125. Government employes get the
same accommodation for $6(1). The
food, the passengers complain, was
served in an unattractive manner, and
some of it, they further assert, was
tainted.
The surgeons instrument?, the pas
sengers say—and the doctor confirms
them—antedate the days nf, aseptic
surgery. They are old fashioned af
fairs that could not be sterilized and
unfit for the simplest operations.
R. P. Schwerin said that he had not j
been notified of the passengers' inten- j
tion.
"Regarding: the reduced fares to gov- j
ernment employes," he said, "that is a
concession we make at the request of i
the government. We do the same
thing on the run to the Philippines.
The interstate commerce ■ commission
would hardly interfere with that ar
rangement. The complaints regarding
the food will be investigated. If th* ,
surgical Instruments on the City of
Panama are out of date, it is the fault
of the doctor."

ward voyage that Dr. W. E. Augtiin

ment of commerce atwi labor of the un

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL
a victim to the lure of Hawaii, for his
often expressed wish, was that he could
go back there, where a white man en
joyed a great deal of prestige and did
not find it necessary to face the ob
stacles found here.
His father is Henry A. Schulz. a book
binder, of 1139 Catalina street, L«os
Angeles. Young Schulz entered Stan
fort! for the first time tins year, bring
ing advanced credits from the Ix>s An
geles polytechnic high school. He
roomed at 704 Bryant street, Palo 'Alto,
in the home of Mrs. I. W. Coons, who
has the highest praise for the boy.
His resolution to go to Hawaii again
evidently was formed rather suddenly,
for the letter he sent to his parents
informing them of his intended journey
did not arrive in time for them to "vwrite
back before he caught the steamer

HYLAND FIGHTS
HARD FOR LIFE
Insurance Man Shot as Burglar
by Neighbor May Survive
the Accident
James J. Hyland, the insurance man
who was mistaken for a burglar and
shot on the steps of the home of his
next door neighbor, Walter S. Cocks of
1027 Church street, early yesterday
morning, has a fighting chance for re- J
covery. Hyland, who was removed ;
from the central emergency hospital
to Adler's sanatorium, was in a semi
conscious condition throughout the
day, but roused sufficiently to decline
to make a dying statement to repre
sentatives of the district attorney's
office. Although he made no response
to Cocks' request for his forgiveness j
shortly after the shooting, he later
informed those about him that the
shooting was all a. mistake. I
Cocke was booked at the city prison i
on a charge of assault with Intent to ;
commit murder, but was released yes- ;
terday morning' on $100 cash bail.
Some criticism was made yesterday
by friends of Hyland on the handling
of the case by "the police. The first
call for assistance was made by Mrs. ;
Amandug Ahman, a trained nurse car-
Ing for the invalid mother of Cocks, j
who telephoned to the Mission police
station that the shooting had taken '
place.
COCKS RECOGNIZES* VICTIM
Immediately after the message was
sent in she heard Cocks say, "My God,
its Hyland/'
A telephone message for an ambu
lance was sent in. Mrs. Ahman stated
yesterday, but the Mission patrol
wagon having arrived the wounded
man was placed in that by the police
men in their haste to have him taken
to surgical aid.
Attendants at the central emergency
hospital said yesterday that the ride
in the patrol wagon undoubtedly caused
great shock to Hyland. and that the
use of an ambulance with first aid at
tendance and skilled handling would
have given the victim of the accident
a better chance for recovery.
Similar objection was made to the
sending in of a victim of a negro
cutting scrape in the Bush street sta
tion patrol wagon earlier In the even
ing, the victim lying on a rough
stretcher in the jolting vehicle.
SHOT IX THE CHEST
Hyland, who lives at 1037 Church
street, was shot through the cheetf the
bullet rat' Ring downward from the left
I breast. Mrs. Hyland remained with
him at tlie sanatorium, where an op- j
eration was performed by Doctors Ar
thur Fisher, J. H. Barbat and Clarence
Quinan.
The wounded man by mistake at
tempted to get in the front door of the
Cocks residence. Finding it locked he
took an empty milk bottle on the porch
and broke a parlor window opening on
the porch. After hearing three
crashes and seeing an arm thrust
through the window. Cocks fired. The
police say that both men were sober.
