DYING INVENTOR TELLS
OF PLANS FOR PIER
Oakland Saw Filer, Insists
Idea Would Revolutionize
. / Wharf Facilities
OAKLAND, Feb. 2.—ln a small, dark j
room at 3113 Linden street lies B. W. j
Haskell, a dying inventor, who de- j
Clares he has a device which will revo- j
lutionize the wharf and dock facilities ,
of the world.
Having failed time and again to find j
any one to listen to him, he now offers !
his secret, to the world free of charge ;
in the bope of seeing it adopted before j
his death. It is fully patented and a j
modfl has been manufactured.
Haskell's invention is for the im
provement of wharves and docks of all
kinds, but particularly of ferry slips.
The basic idea is a set of rollers for
the piers. The rollers are in a frame
and are held two or three feet out
from the structural part of the wharf
by weights ■which hang behind.
The benefit to be derived, Haskell
says, 13 that the rollers will reduce
the friction to a minimum, thereby
lengthening the life of the wharf, and
that the play back and forth will en
tirely eliminate the shock and prevent
the breakage of piles.
"I have tried several times to get
the state to adopt my plan," said the
dying inventor. "The last time was a
year ago, when I had an interview
with the harbor commissioners of San
Francisco. They refused to listen to
me, saying that the plan was imprac
ticable. I have practically given up
hope of seeing the patent In use in
my lifetime, but I am so anxious to
see it tried that I am willing to give
it to the state free of charge.
"The model can be seen here at any
time, as well as the papers showing
my patent right. Both are at the dis
posal of the state if the authorities
will give the thing a trial."
Haskell went on to say that before
the lapse of 10 years his idea or a
similar one would surely be on the
wharves of every port in the world.
Haskell Is unable to leave his bed
and is in straitened circumstances. He
is a saw filer by trade and has lived
in Oakland for 20 years. He has spent
the last few years working on his in
ventions. He now has six patents and
four pending.

RECONCILIATION
IN TRAIN OF AN
ACT OF DESPAIR
Mrs. Bessie Thompson.
Husband Hastens to Bed
side of Mrs. Bessie
Thompson at Hospital
Mrs. Besele Thompson's attempt to
take her own life with carbolic acid
Saturday night, despairing of reconcili
ation with her husband, brought him
quickly to her side when he read in the
newspapers yesterday of his 22 year
old wife's sad mental and physical
condition.
Later ft was made manifest that a
steady, good hearted little working
girl named Alice Schultze of 1232 Mar
ket street had been the good Samaritan
to Mrs. Thompson and had taken her
into her lodgings, fed her and had
done what she could to relieve the
strain that was gradually undermin
ing the young woman's being.
Edward Thompson, who is a clerk in
the office of J. C. Wilson, stock broker,
fell out with his wife some months
ago. The young woman went back to
her home in Eau Claire, Wis., but later
returned to San Francisco to try to
bring about a reconciliation with
Thompson, who had threatened her
with divorce on the ground of deser
tion.
Thompson could not be moved by the
entreaties of his wife, and she, after
spending all of her money looking for
work here, was taken under the friend
ly care of Miss Schultze, ■who provided
for her morbid friend until Saturday
night, when the climax came in the
effort of Mrs. Thompson to commit
suicide.
Thompson hastened to his wife's
side at the emergency hospital yester
day morning. Dr. R. C. Ryan, who
worked with all his skill to save the
■woman's life, was there. He spoke a
few words with Thompson, and sorin
the husband, thoroughly repent.int, was
at his wife's side pledging his undying
love.
"I am so glad," simply spoke modest
Miss .Schultze. "Bessie was the sweet
est, kindest little woman in the world.
She is happy now. I tried to do my
part by her."
