The supervisors were advised by City
Attorney, Long yesterday that they had
no power to grant the request of the
City Electric company for revocable
permits to open certain streets for ex
tension of the company's underground

operate with the supervisors in a dis
cussion of the proper policy to be
adopted In the drafting of a proposed
ordinance that will solve the difficulty
in which the City Electric company la
placed because of its lack of franchise
rights for making the extensions.

there was no authority either in the

After failing In Los Angeles to raise
'the $120,000 bond for the release of
Olaf A. Tveitmoe from the Leavenworth
penitentiary, pending his appeal from
conviction in the dynamiting plot,
union labor representatives appeared
before United States Deputy District
Attorney Benjamin McKinley yester
day and pledged their homes and per
sonal property to the amount of $42,000.
The remaining $78,000 probably will be
pledged today and the bonds acknowl
edged by United States Commissioner
Francis Krull, subject to the approval
of the Indianapolis trial court.
Those who pledged their property
yesterday were Emma M. Harrington
of 3668 Twenty-flrst street, who gives
her occupation as housewife, $15,000;
E. B. Carr of 327 Noe street, a black
smith, $12,500; Patrick Vaugrhan and

Hockin was the only convicted labor

was not asked when the matter was

"Hockin already has confessed his

LINE BUT A STARTER
Its Manager Says Ramifying
Lines Will Be Added
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
BURLINGAME, Jan. 15.—That the
three miles of electric railways now
being constructed?from the bay shore
to the foothills by a group of capital
ists headed by Ansel M. Easton may
be the first part of a comprehensive
system of street railroads in Easton,
Burlingame and contiguous territory
was the statement made today by F. J.
Rodgers of San Francisco, manager of
the new line.
Rogers stated that if the line now
under construction proves a success
applications will be made to the city
trustees of Burlingame for more fran
chises reaching into all the untapped
. Work on three miles of 'allroad was
commenced several days ago and is
well under way. Leaving Easton sta
tion, the line parallels the Southern
Pacific tracks for one block and then
turns at right angles into Hillsiue
drive, which it follows in a westerly
direction across the main county road
and into the foothills. The western
terminal of the road will be near the
summit of the foothills overlooking the
north Crystal springs, the lake on one
side and the bay on the other.
The promoters of the road estimate
the cost of the first three miles at
The type of car to be used on the
new line is the Edison-Beach storage
battery car, which has proved a success
in recent trials in the east. Easton and
Rodgers returned only a few days ago
from the east, where they witnessed
the demonstration of the new type of
car. Thomas A. Edison, the Inventor,
was present also.
Rodgers said today that a 15 minute
service would be maintained on the new
FIRE BEING INVESTIGATED
Detectives from the central office are

Twenty-third street, occupied by four
Italian laborers employed at the Union
Iron works. Empty gasoline cane were
found In the kitchen near the fire, which
caused about $20 damage. Charles Carl
son, a builder, owns the house and oc
cupies the upper apartment. The ItaWans
are James Catechas, George Arguenon,
I. Aroni and P. Caanonos. The police
theory is that some one having a grudge
against the Italians fired the house.

IS PROBLEM STILL
District Attorney Hunting
for More Information
in the Case
Attorneys representing Dr. W. W.
Fraser in the Slingsby case have in
formed Assistant District Attorney
Louis Ferrari that an appearance will
be made before Police Judge Shortall
today asking that the time for hearing
be continued from Monday to next
Thursday. Wire advices from Weaver
ville Indicate that the influenza epi-
demic is becoming serious and that It
will not be possible for Doctor Fraser,
the town's only physician, to leave un
til he secures another doctor and gets
tho epidemic under control.
DISTRICT ATTORNEY PUZZLED
The fact that action has been com
menced in England to determine the
question of the changeling's legiti
macy serves to cause a delay in the
criminal prosecution. The district at
torney's office Is anxious to secure the
testimony of Mr. and Mrs. Slingsby,
and the testimony adduced In English
courts will be asked for. It is expected
that District Attorney Fickert will
take active charge of the case with
Ferrari as soon as he returns from the
south. Fickert has been asking daily
for reports from Ferrari, and Is much
puzzled over the case.
Ferrari is anxiously awaiting the
transcript of the board of health hear
ing. Dr. William F. Snow, secretary
of the state board of health, sent word
yesterday that he is busy working on
the transcript and will probably be
able to send a copy of it before the end
of the week.
As soon as the case of Doctor
Fraser is under way Ferrari will send
to St. Louis to have the deposition of
Mies Anna C. Anderson, a nurse, taken.
Miss Anderson, acording to Doctor
Fraser, was present at the birth of
the child, and also during the alleged
transfer to Mrs. Slingsby.
DOCTOR STAXDS FIRM
The statement of Doctor Fraser that
he stands ready to admit that the baby
is illegitimate and that he will take
all responsibility for the false certi
ficate serves to greatly offse4 the
theory that the whole case is merely
a conspiracy on the part of London
relatives against Lieutenant Slingsby
and his wife. That Mrs. Blain main
tains her original story of the still
birth and substitution in the face of
an offer of immunity if she desires to
change the testimony; that Doctor
Fraser ie prepared to accept a jail
sentence based on his admissions, and
that no counter charge has been made
by the. Sllngsbys tends to fix the opin
ion of Ferrari that the baby* substitu
tion did take place and that Mrs.
Blain's story is true.
Ferrari will subpena Miss Lillian
Andersen from San Diego, and Paul
Colvin, the Santa Rosa chauffeur,
whose name appears on the birth cer
tificate as father of the child, will also

cal labor circles that
there is a movement
on foot to" have the San Francisco La

adopted by the Building Trades coun
cil, to have a committee examine every
delegate from affiliated unions before
seating him to discover If he is a mem
ber of any organization that has openly

can Federation of Labor, and is doing
what it can to oust the incumbent ad
j ministration of that body; and if he be
found to be such, to return the cre
dentials to the union and ask that an
other delegate be sent. Those who are
talking upon this proposition say that
the San Francisco Labor council, being
chartered by the American Federation
lof Labor, is bound to be loyal to It. In
the fullest, and that It has no right to
allow delegates to be seated In the
council who are pledged in other or
ganizations not to recognize the A. F.

with that taken in the council. The
proponents of the movement say that

Before Small Party
Extreme simplicity marked the nup

crossed at the waist both front and
back, and fashioned with loose sleeves.
It was relieved around the neck and
the center of the bodice with some rare
old family lace. With this costume she
wore a black velvet hat elaborated
with gold braid. She carried a shower
bouquet of lilies of the valley.
Her only attendant was Miss Vir
ginia who was gowned in a
creation of brown charmeuse, embel
lished with panels of heavy lace, and
offset by a brown velvet picture hat
trimmed with a bird of paradise. The

the late John C. McMullen, founder of
the State Savings bank of this city,

The tracts so acquired will be open
to negro students to cultivate, and the
proceeds from the sale of the products
will go to defray the cost of their edu
cation. In addition to the cash ready
for the enterprise, the testator directed
that half the income from S^ 6 - 0 ?? ' n
bank stocks, which he had, should be
used for the same purpose.
The bequests were explained as loi
lows by McMullen:

tracts of land to help the students
toward independence and knowledge
and experience In the cultivation and
management of the land."
To carry out his projects McMullen s
sons, Robert J. McMullen and Paul L.
