Hamburg - American Company
Will Inaugurate Branch Pa*
cific Coast Service
- ly following the promulgation
by President Taft of the tolls that will
be charged for passage through the
Panama canal, is the announcement by
H. F. Dorgeloh, Pacific coast manager
for the Hamburg-American steamship
line, that George Geise, the linos
Shanghai manager, will arrive in this
city in a few days to close negotiations,
by which his company will acquire
docking facilities on San Francisco bay
for a branch service which will operate
between the Pacific coast of the United
States, the Orient and Europe, and, ;
after the canal is opened for "business, J
will send through steamers around the j
world by way of the canal.
Like the Cunard, White Star, North j
German Lloyd, Chargeurs Reunis and i
other foreign steamship companies, the j
Hamburg-American line was early in j
the field to participate in the traffic j
that the Panama canal will bring to the |
Pacific coast of North and South Ameri
More than a year ago representatives
of the company \ isited San Francisco,
made investigations of the commercial,
hydrographic and dockage conditions,
and secured options on several likely
sites for its contemplated docks.
Among these, it is said, were the
property of Dr. Hartland Law. at North
Beach: a lot on Islais creek, and some
waterfront property at Point Rich
mond. Which of these has been finally
selected is not yet announced, and
probably will not be until Manager
Gflse closes the deal.
When that is done the company pur
poses constructing the necessary dock
ing, warehouse and other terminal fa
cilities, and to inaugurate a regular
steamship service between Hamburg,
Suez, India, the Straits settlements.
China, Japan, San Francisco, Portland,
Seattle and Vancouver.
Later, when the canal is opened, a
regular service Is to be maintained
between Europe and Pacific ocean
ports and around the world by way of
Shipping men see in this prompt ac
tion by the Hamburg-American line a
recognition by the world's great mari
time interests of the immense impetus
that the canal will give to the < om
m*rce of the Pacific ocean and to the
development of San Francisco as a
tenter of world trade. The Hamburg-
American line is one of the largest in
the world, having no less than 406
steamers in operation already. Of
these, fourteen, including the mammoth
Kaiserin Auguste Victoria of 25,000
tons net, and the Amerika of 22.500
tons, srp in the fast trans-AtlantiV p\
press service between New York and
Europe: four are in the Mediterranean
service: eight in the South and Central
American service, and it is said that
the company will build several large
-ateamers for the new service between
the orient ami the United States.
AH these and many others are for
passenger traffic, while scores of
Others are for freight traffic.
The around the world excursion
steamer Cleveland, which has made a
couple of visits to San Francisco, be
longs to the Hamburg-American line.
When thf- Panama canal is opened the
around the world trips will be made
through it. not by a single ship at ir
regular intervals, but by several, mak
ing voyages on regular schedule time.
Mass meetings, which will be ad
dressed by leading public men. will be
held every day this week, beginning
this evening, at various improvement

Report was made to the park police
station several weeks ago that some
one was stealing the choicest of the
choice mushrooms from the large bed
at Broom point in Golden Gate park.
To effect the capture of the thief ap
peared a simple task, provided that he
returned. The thief did return and
carried off large quantities of - the
mushrooms under the eyes of the po
Sergeant McGee yesterday de
termined to try his hand on the case.
About an hour after he went into the
Broom point mushroom patch he came
forth and announced that the Identity
of the thief had been established. Fol
lowed by an admiring, yet crestfallen
corps of big policemen, Sergeant Mc-
Gee pointed out the footprints of the
thief and furthermore showed them his
home, which was in a tree' a short
distance away.
The nrushroom thief was a big gray
squirrel. His name Is Ponce de Leon.
Attracted by the clanging bells of
the Park emergency hospital ambu
lance, Mrs. E. A. James, 654 Precita

around the wagon in Golden Gate park
yesterday afternoon and saw a white
clad doctor bending over the still form
of her 3 year old son, Clarence James,
for whom she had been searching for
more than an hour.
Mrs. James rode to the hospital
clasping her son to her breast, and
stayed with him during the afternoon.
Physicians said the child was suffer
ing from concussion *f the brain and
a possible fracture of the skull.
The boy had become separated from

The ehurchee of San Francisco are
entering into the flght to carry the
charter amendment to give the fire
men of the city 12- hours off in every

the Firemen's Two Platoon association
that they are worKing for a movement
to set aside the Sunday preceding the
amendment election aa firemen's day,
when sermons will be preached urging
.the passage of the amendment.
Pastors throughout the city are
writing to the men in charge of the
campaign for shorter hours, pledging
their support and assuring the firemen
that they will use every influence and
devote their time for th« cause.

Methodist Episcopa.l church, wrote yes
terday saying: "I can heartily indorse
the charter amendment as being reas
onable and just, and so far as my In
fluence goes it will be exercised in its
Expressions by other pastors were
as follows:
Rev. c. 3f. stenerud, pastor of Trin
ity English Evangelical Lutheran
church: "The amendment should have
the undivided support of every citizen.
I shall work in favor of it."
Rev. C. s. Tanner, pastor of Rich
mond Presbyterian church: "I am in
favor of the double shift that will give
the firemen a chance to devpte a por
tion of their time to their families."
Rev. George l.angton, pastor Mission
Congregational church: "It is a crime
against civilization that men whose
work is so hazardous and danger
fraught should be compelled to work
so many hours a day. I shall speak
in favor of the amendment and urge
the people to vote for it."
Rev. Ci l<. Duncan, pastor Grace Con
gregational church: "I was interested
in the light recently won in Seattle for
a shorter day for firemen, and shall de
vote all the time possible for the boye
in San Francisco."
Rev. Henry c. Nnilon, pastor Parkside

in my power to help out the cause."

Other pastors have been equally as
expressive in their views, and all as

hard for the cause.
Coroner Dr. T. B. W. Lei and ad
dressed the meeting of the firemen in
Veteran Firemen's hall, called yester
day morning to discuss plans for the
campaign to carry the amendment.
Leland said that while there was a
business man's and a citizen's view
point, he would like to discuss the
question from a physician's standpoint.
He said that the long hours of the
firemen, living in a firehouse where
from five to six horses are kept do not
make for the best health of the men.
The long hours of suspense endured be
tween calls, which often mean the most
perilous work, are not conducive to
the beet physical and mental condition,
he said. And the suspense under which
the married fireman labors, when there
is sickness in his family, and when he
realizes that the most he can have
with the loved ones is an hour a day
and a few hours each week, does not
contribute to the efficiency of the de
The speaker told of an ordinance the
board of health is drafting which will
provide that all stables for horses be
removed from any residence section of
the city, as such places are considered
a menace to public health. He brought
out the point that if the proximity to
a stable is unhealthful, the result must
be much worse when men must live in
the tame building with a half dozen
Leland concluded by saying that the
firemen would find every physican
working for their amendment, as the
medical men know what long hours,
insanitary station* and hours of worry
over sick ones at home mean.
A meeting of the women of the city
is called for Wednesday afternoon at
the auditorium to discuss the amend
ment. Mrs. John S. Phillips, president
of the woman's auxiliary of the Fire
men's Two Platoon association, and
Mrs. Fred X Hilmer, secretary, will
have charge of the meeting.

In going over the returns from

The chamber has authorized the ap

The Young Men's Christian associa
tion was the subject of criticism at the
hands of several members of the
Asiatic Exclusion league at the league's
regular meeting yesterday afternoon.
The criticism followed a reference by
State Senator Marc Anthony to a re
cent lecture delivered before the asso
ciation by a college bred Japanese,
who, in the opinion of the critics, was
paid by the Japanese government to
allay the fears of the American people
that the influx of Japanese might be
dangerous to the nation.
The matter was finally dropped, after
E. B. Carr, vice president of the league,
had said:
"The Young Men's Christian asso
ciation is in such respects an institu
tion for investigation. It would doubt
less be glad to hear a representative of
the other side."

EUREKA, Nov. 17.—After attacking
his sweetheart. Julia Silberg. with a
pocket knife and slashing: about the
neck and breast, 14 times, Frank Fros
by, a woodsman, drove the knife in hie
own brain and died within a few hours.
His wound was peculiar, the little
knife having been driven in between
the base of the skull and the first ver
tebrae. Had his aim varied a fraction
of an inch he would have inflicted only
a scalp wound.
Julia Silbergr. it is said, had promised
to marry Frosby. and when he called
to see her last night she did not give
him a cordial reception. A quarrel
ensued and ended in the tragedy. The
girl will recover.

Policy of Repression Employed
by General Robles Is Re
sumed in Mexico
MEXICO CITY, Nov. 17.—That the
Mexican government is determined to
carry out the threat to resume the
tactics employed so successfully by
General Robles in the state of Morelos
some months ago, is indicated by the
report of the war department announc
ing: the total destruction of several
small towns and villages in the north
ern mountains of Oaxaca, where the
revolution has been rampant.
Another evidence of the government's
intention to use all energy in restoring
peace !n the south is the anouncement
by a high official that 3.000 soldiers
now operating in the north, chiefly in
• 'hihuahua, Coahuila and Durango will
be sent against rebels in the states of
Mexico. Puebla. Guerrero and Oaxaca.
The government is convinced that the
situation in the country is so nearly
in hand that smaller forces will be able
to restore normal conditions.
Ixtepcji and Zia, two of the places
destroyed, were'the strongholds of the
Serrano Indians, who had not been aub
jugated by the campaign waged in the
vicinity of the state capital after an
attempt had been made to capture the
city. Convinced that the inhabitants
of these towns were in accord with the
rebels, orders were issued for their des
truction. "Without calling on the in
habitants to withdraw, the artillery be
gan Its work, ceasing only when th»
town had been reduced to a mass of
The Indians are active In other di
rections. Official reports say that con
ditions in the states of Morelos and
Mexico have improved, but it is known
that the rebels hold important hills
near Ouernavaca and largely control
the rural districts and many of the
minor towns in the state of Mexico.
The situation in the state of Guerrero
has become worse on account of the
leadership of Juan Andrew Almazan,
who is said to have a court following
and controls much territory along the
Pacific coast.
General Agujlar, who Iβ supposed to
be directing a large part of the rebel
forces, is operating in the southern
part of the state of Puebla. Encoun
ters are reported dally, but in all of
them the government has been victori
ous, with slight lossee. At Huaque
cheuta the federals dislodged the rebels
from a strong position, eight rebels and
one federal being killed. Numerous
haciendas and small towns have been
sacked and the crops destroyed.
