Held Responsible for Order
The li.l ll on. The police commts- |
nion°rs last evening, by unanimous
tctlOß. put out drastic edicts that leave j
nn room for doubt. The days of the
female vender of Pacific street liquor
is over, and the policeman who allows
Rambling on his beat will be held per
sonally responsible for the play and
may lose his star in the bargain. This
means gambling games, whether they
nducted in Juarez by wire or in
Pan Francisco by actual manipulation
of the horses and the pasteboards, must
c -«ase.
The Joys of Pacific street must give
way to Glooms, and the farmer may go
forth in the land with at least $4 In
1 pockets without fear of being given
knockout drops or "frisked" for his
spare wallet.
The police commissioners ordained
among many things that "no females
shall be employed to sell or solicit the
sale of liquor in any premises where
liquor is sold at retail to which female
visitors or patrons are allowed admit
tance, and that no female visitors or
patrons shall be permitted in any place
where liquor is sold at retail in any part
of Stanyan street from Fell to Frederick
and in said street no dancing will be
permitted or female s-ingets or enter
tainers employed in such places. This
resolution to go into effect March 1.
The .-onimissioners passed a resolu
tion that after today patrolmen of the
department shall be held responsible
for all places located upon their beats
■■r adjac««t thereto in which gambling
Is being conducted, and it is made the
doty of the captain of the district in
the existence of any such gamb
ling places shall be ascertained by any
M other than the officer or officers
pati oiling beats to file a complaint with |
the board of police commissioners
against said officer or officers for neg
lect of duty.
In addition to the resolution closing
Stanyan street saloons to women pa
trons from Frederick to Fell after Mar.-h
1 the board passed an additional reso
lution making the same regulation ap
ply from Fell street to Fulton after
April 1.
The <.-omrnissittn also dealt a blow to
bankomefl who congregate in known
saloons of moral disrepute and also
warned "fences"' that they must be
good. It said:
••Knowingly permitting men of crimi
nal habits to frequent, loiter about or
congregate In places where liquor is
sold at retail shall be deemed sufficient
cause for revocation of license.
"Ko pawnbroker shall be permitted to
have on the premises used by him for
hie business or in any room or place
connected therewith, any crucible or
other instrument for the reduction or
melting of metals.

THE San Francisco CALL
Board, Pushed by Rolph,
Vote 14 to 3 for Municipal
Trolley From Market
to Bay Street
Stockton Proposition Is Re
jected as Savoripg of Cor
poration Influence
Transportation bombshells burst in
air at the meeting of the board of su
pervisors yesterday afternoon and out
of it all came a flash of victory for
municipal ownership and an indorse
ment of the Matt Sullivan-O'Shaugh
hessy plans for new lines to the Pan
ama-Pacific exposition.
Mayor Rolph was the leader of the
hosts that held for a> general system
of municipal railroads to accommodate
patrons of the exposition and although
raked with parthian arrows by some
of the retreating hosts he kept going
—and so did the supervisors.
Supervisor George E. Gallagher in
troduced a resolution favoring the city
building a crosstown line in Van Ness
avenue — double track from Market
street to Bay street. In line with the
plans outlined by Mr. Sullivan and
City Engineer O'Shaughnessy.
The resolution went through. 14 to
3, with Doctor Giannini excused from
voting on account of being a Van Ness
avenue property owner.
The full force of the board was there
and the city's official stand in the mat
ter was therefore placed on record with
no absent vote to have doubts about.
Those who opposed the Van Ness
avenue extension were Supervisors
Mauzy, Vogelsang and Murphy. Their
arguments were in line with business
ideas as they saw them, and were more
or lesr *r ctl**-nal in tenor and not In
accord with a greater ,San Francisco,
according to those who opposed them.
Mayor Rolph won the day when a
resolution authorized the public utili
ties committee of the board of super
visors to meet tomorrow afternoon at
2 o'clock with the directors of the ex
position management and decide on a
plan of action. The determination of

Inspector McArthur saw Sorenson carry
a large box into the hotel and followed
him to his room.
When the inspector gained entrance
Sorenson had opened the box, which
contained 48 five tael tins of opium, and
in his pockets were four more tins.
McArthur drew his pistol and made
his prisoner hold up his hands.
The inspector then turned to tele
phone for assistance and Sorenson ran.
A fight resulted in which Sorenson, who
is much larger than McArthur, gave the
officer a severe beating, but was unable
to deprive him of his pistol.
Breaking away, Sorenson ran down
the hall and was shot just as he gained
the stairway.

Blizzard at South Pole Overwhelms Brave Officer in
Charge and Many Members of His Party
LONDON, Feb. 10.—News reached the world today that Captain Robert F. Scott, the Antarctic explorer, and
an unknown number of his companions perished in the Antarctic while on their return journey from the south pole.
They reached their goal on January 18, 1912, about a month after Captain Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian, had
planted the flag of his country there. They then turned back toward the bases they formed on their outward jour
ney, but were overtaken, overwhelmed and destroyed by a blizzard.
The news of the death of the explorers was brought to civilization today by the captain of the Terra Nova,
the vessel which had taken Scott's expedition to the south and which had gone again to bring them back after
the accomplishment of their task. A searching expedition recovered the bodies and records of the party.

four mine guards, as the result of a
desperate battle in the Kanawha county
coal fields.
Five companies of state militia
reached the troubled zone tonight.
The most serious clash of the mine
trouble in West Virginia occurred today
near Mucklow.
Fred W. Lester, in charge of mine
guards, sought to head off several
hundred strikers attempting to gain
a position from which they could fire
on the town of Mucklow and still be
out of the range of machine guns.
In this skirmish two of the officers
were shot dead.
Reintorcements appeared and a con

all the afternoon.

about March 29. 1912, 11 miles from
One Ton depot, a blizzard overwhelmed
them. They had suffered greatly from
hunger and exposure, and the death of
Scott, Bowers and Wilson virtually was
due to that. They died soon after the
blizzard swept down on the party.

NEW YORK, Feb. 10.—If there is a
new melody in her voice and a fresh
sparkle to her dances, as the dramatic
critics say of Miss Julia Sanderson,
it is because the "Sunshine Girl" is
blissful, so to speak, at the passing of
a most bitter marital cup from her
A referee, after hearing many chap
ters of spicy incidents in the career of
'•Tod,*' otherwise James F. Sloan, has
awarded her a decree of divorce from
the former jockey.
Sloan's address, it appears, is Hotel
Maisons la Fitte, Seine, Paris. Early
in the action he put in an answer and
filed a counter claim for a divorce from
the little leading lady, naming a Tale
football star as corespondent.
On the motion of Sloan's own law
yer, who asserted there was at no time
any evidence to back the Jockey's
spiteful allegations, the referee, Ed
ward L. Paris, dismissed the counter
claim and took testimony only against
the former bon vlvant horseman.
What occurred the night of the wed
ding was the basis of one of Mrs.
Sloan's charges. Directly after the
ceremony there was a champagne sup
At midnight the bride went home to

day, wished her a cheery good morn

"dearie" and "dollie." and invited her
down to luncheon, adding that he was

MEXICO CITY', Feh. 10.—President
Francisco I. Madero is back In the na

brief disappearance from the palace
caused a rumor that he had taken to
flight, but It appears that he was ab

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 10.—General
Felix Diax, whose bold stroke Sunday
almost overthrew the Madero adminis
tration, held his army In leash today.
Nor did the scattered government
forces dare to attack him in his forti
fied position in and about the arsenal.
Still hoping that he might attain
complete control without further loss of
life or destruction of property, General
Diaz surprised the capital by refrain
ing from turning his heavy guns on the
national palace.
The government's position has not
been altered materially since yesterday,
although a few of General Blanquet'*
soldiers—not more than 500—have ar
rived and a small detachment of rurales
has ridden Into the city.
The forces of General Diaz were not
materially augmented either, but the
proximity of the Zapatistas and the
promised early arrival of rebels front
the state of Vera Cruz under Gaudenci.,
de la Llave appear to have strengthened
his hand.
Although almost Incomprehensible It
has been impossible for residents of
the capital to ascertain the truth re
garding the movements of a general
whom the government expects to come
to the aid of General Huerta, the newly
appointed post commander.
Officially it has been announced that
both General Blanquet and General
Angeles are in the city, but this is
denied in quarters equally trustworthy.
Not one has been found who actually
has seen these generals, and their fail
