VAN NESS LINE
TRAVEL LIKELY
IN 15 MONTHS
Sullivan-O'Shaughnessy Mu
nicipal Ownership Plan
Soon to Become a
Reality
NO BOND ISSUE IS
NEEDED FOR WORK
Mayor Rolph Urging Imme
diate Action to Push
New Trolley
That the Matt Sullivan-O'Shaughnessy
plans for municipal ownership of a
system of railroads that will relieve
the congestion of traffic during * the
Panama-Pacific exposition will become
a reality is no longer a doubt.
City Engineer O'Shaughnessy is out
of the city, but his offlce force has been
advised to proceed at once with tenta
tive plans for the Van Ness avenue
line, and, as this road will not call for
ft special bond issue, it can be con
structed without delay. Mayor Rolph
is urging immediate action.
"! don't want a minute to be lost in
bringing the transportation problem to
■ conclusion," said the mayor. "The
people know how I stand in this matter
and they also know that I Intend to do
all that is in my power to put the mv
* i.-ipal lines through.
TRANSPORTATION SOLE INTEREST
"'My sole interest is to get the street
car service in condition to handle the
I'M.") traffic and that does not mean that
I have any feeling, other than the bet
terment of public service, toward any
existing corporation. My motto has
been to go ahead for one's self and not
depend upon others. We always need
the help of others, but our own efforts
are many times more effective if put in
the right direction."
City Engineer O'Shaughnessy has pre
pared plans that will show that the
Van Xess avenue line can be con
structed in about 15 months. This
means that the line can he fully
equipped for carrying passengers within
that time. The cost will he about $292.- |
999, and in addition to this must be
ridded the cost for cars. The city can
easily meet the cost for construction
from funds already In hand.

The reports of the Geary street mu
nicipal railway show that with a few
•ars running and with a line that ex
tends only to Kearny street at one end
and to the park at the other, the inter
est on the bonds can he paid and a neat
surplus put aside.
Relative to the Stockton street tun
nel proposition, only $14,660 remains to
lie collected from property owners as
sessed for the horo. The comment has
been made that the city could not have
a tunnel without a car line through it.
hut tin- city engineer's office says that
this has been taken under considera
tion. Supervisor Giannini said that
after the trivial technicalities that are
delaying work on the Stockton street
tunnel are eliminated, which will be in
a short time, the city will undoubtedly
find a way to build a road through the
bore to North beach.
II 411 flOlt BOARD PI,A.\XI\G
The hoard of harbor commissioners
through President Dwyer is working
toward a solution of the Embarcadero
transportation ideas. The board has
considered an elevated railway, but it
has not arrived at any deflrfite con
struction phui. President Dwyer said
that he was speaking for all the mem
bers of the board of harbor commis
sioners when he said that he was heart
and soul with the city in its effort to
c-eate through the state an Embarca
dero line for passengers. There are a
few legal phases of the matter to be
"investigated and the legislature may
have to empower the board to go ahead
with the construction of a passenger
line that might be leased to the <§ty.
While no offi. ial opinion has been
rendered it is understood that the har
bor board would he enabled to lease an
Krnbarcadero line to the city just as
legally as it could lease a dock priv
ilege to an Individual, company or cor
poration.
fili.more rtmincL URGED
Members of the Fillmore Street Im
provement association are preparing to
urge the supervisors to press the bor
ing of a Fillmore street tunnei. They
assert that the tunnel would be one of
the best, means of reaching the expo
sition grounds.
Officials of the United Railroads are
reticent about future action of the cor
poration in the matter of betterment
of service. The company is simply'
waiting to see what the city will do.
Opinion among United Railroads men
seems to be that no extensions will be
made unless the present franchise laws
are changed.
NO HALF WAY FOR THE
LIQUOR MEN, SAYS WHITE
That the resolutions passed hy the
police commission Monday evening rela
tive to gambling and the selling of
liquor by women will be enforced te
the letter was the statement made yes
terday by Chief of Police White.
"There can be no middle ground," he
"No one knows better than the
man patrollng his beat just what Is
Koinpr on, and each man will be held
responsible."
Official instruction will be given each
squad this morning at headquarters.
The resolutions were handed by White
to his chief clerk yesterday and were
not given to the outgoing squads yes
terday. As a result, owners and man
agers of saloons were not advised of
the determination of the commission
except through the newspapers.
Nearly 1,000 women who have been
used by the dive keepers along the Kar
bary coast and in other sections of the
city to solicit the purchase of drink
will be forced to seek other employ
ment because of the action of the com
mission. The order forbidding their
employment, like the one placing the
responsibility for gambling houses on
the patrolman, goes Into effect imme
diately.
The saloons along Stanyan street have
until March 1 to comply. After that
date no women will be permitted in
places where liquor is served or sold.
There will be no entertainers or dan
cing in these places. Liquor dealers
who permit men of known criminal
habits to loiter around their places of
business will be subject to revocation
of their licences.
That many saloon keepers will at
tempt to evade some of the provisions
of the law is expected, particularly
tbjise dealing with the hiring of girls
to *elp in the sale of liquor.
JAMES A. PATTEN, GRAIN
AND COTTON SPECULATOR
TURKEY STRIVING
TO END TROUBLES
Tewfik Pasha Once More
Appeals to Great Britain
for Aid
LONDON*. Feb. 11.—It is becoming
increasingly evident that Turkey is
taking steps to resume peace negotia
tions, although it is possible no direct
action will be taken until some de
cisive result in the fighting in the Gal
lipoli peninsula has been achieved. It
is understood that Tewflk Pasha, Turk
ish ambassador, has had several inter
views with the British foreign secre
tary recently and that Reschid Pasha,
bead of the first peace delegation, has
been ordered to remain in London.
Ilakki Pashj will consult with Silmi
Pasha and Count yon Berchthold, the
Austrian foreign minister at Vienna,
before coming to London.
Another effort on the part of the
porte to raise a small loan in Paris has
failed, owing to the refusal of the
French government to open the Paris
market.
Official accounts of the fighting is
sued at Sofia and Constantinople are
very conflicting, but It seems to be cer
tain that the Turkish arms have again
met serious reverses, although Adrian
ople and Scutari still are holding out.
Tin- hopelessness of achieving any
success in an offensive movement, com
bined with a of money appears to
have decided the porte again to appeal
to the powers to intervene in favor of
peace, and this probably has been the
subject of Tewttk Pasha's communica
tion with Sir Edward Grey.
It Is reported that this matter was
discussed at a meeting of the ambassa
dors at the foreign offW today, hut
that it was decided that the powers
would be unable to undertake the role
because the allies had declared that
in the future they won],] negotiate
peace only on the battlefield.
France Is Emphatic
PARIS. F«b. 11.—Bulgaria having
refused the request of the powers that
foreigners be allowed to leave Adrian
ople. the French government has made
further representations to Bulgaria of
the most pressing character, demand
ing: that French residents be author
ized to quit the city immediately.
Turkish Loss Heavy
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Feb. ii.—The
Turkish army in the peninsula of Gal
lipoii lost fi.ooo men and r.O officers
during the fighting at Bulair, accord
ing to an official report issued here
today.
Several thousand Turkish soldiers are
declared to have, fallen in a battle be
fore the Tchatalja lines. February 9,
and thousands more at Oharkeui.
Today's report says.
"The Bulgarian army having repulsed
several Turkish attacks along the Tcha
talja lines, except on the extreme right
flank, where they -were exposed to the
convergent fire from the Turkish war
ships in the Sea of Marmora and the
Gulf of Buyuk Fhekmedje, retired to
fresh positions five or six miles to the
rear. The losses of the Bulgarians were
insignificant, while those of the Turks
amounted to several thousand men,
mainly due to the excellently directed
Bulgarian shell fire."
ACCOUNTING METHODS
OF COAL COMPANY BARED
In preparation for the work of next
Friday, when actual taking of testi
mony will begin against the. Western
Fuel company for coal frauds alleged
to have been perpetrated against the
government, W. H. Tidwell. the special
agent of the treasury department, who
has had active charge of the investiga
tion, appeared yesterday afternoon be
fore the federal grand jury to explain
the accounting methods used by the
coal company.
This informal report presaged the
producing evidence to show that con
spiracy had been practiced for a num
ber of years against the government by
means of collecting rebates on more
coal than actually was shipped out of
San Francisco. Since the destruction
of records in the flre of 1908 it is be
lieve.} that approximately $50.00* has
been taken from the federal treasury
by illegal means.
"If Mr. Tidwell's report and the. tes
timony of witnesses next Friday show
that these peculiar entries in the West
ern Fuel company's books prove this "
said United States Attorney John D. mJ--
Nab, "I will ask for conspiracy indict
ments against every man who may have
profited by the alleged deal."
Besides Special Investigator Tidwell.
Customs Inspectors Joseph Head and
E. E. Enlow, who have been running
down Information furnished some time
ago by former Assistant Superintend
ent David Powers of the fuel concern,
probably will be called to testify It
is understood that Powers and his
brother. Edwin Powers, formerly a
bookkeeper for the "coal trust," may
also appear. Attorney General Wicker
sham is being informed of the progress
of the work.

LAWYER SAYS MORAL
TURPITUDE LACKING
«
Declares Client Acted Be
cause He Desired to Save
All Parties Trouble
NEW YORK. Feb. 11.—James A.
Patten, the cotton and grain specula
tor, pleaded guilty in the* federal court
here today to the sixth count in an
indictment charging him with restraint
of trade.
Judge Mayer fined Mr. Patten 54.000,
which was paid Immediately.
The sixth count charges that Patten
and Ills associates. Colonel Robert M.
Thompson. William P. Brown, F. B.
Hayne and Eugene Scales, agreed, un
der a contract, to bur practically the
entire raw cotton crop of 1909 In order
to hold it out of the market until No
vember 1, 1910.
To the seven other counts in the In
dictment Patten pleaded not guilty
and they were nolred by the court.
Patten, Eugene Scales, of Texas, and
others were Indicted by a federal grand
jury here more than a year ago for
manipulation of the cotton market.
The government charged that their
acts constituted restraint of trade.
The defendants demurred and carried
their case to the supreme court, which
recently ruled against them.
George W. Merrick, Patten's attor
ney, issued a statement saying that
his client had entered his plea "with
out any consciousness of being guilty of
any moral turpitude or of offending
in the slightest degree against any
law or proper rule of conduct."
"The contract charged in the sixth
count of this indictment is one that has
hitherto always been deemed commer
cially proper and lawful," said the
lawyer. "Indeed, this contract was not
signed by him and he only knew of It
as having been entered into by others
and as one entirely proper. This con
tract, moreover, was drawn by counsel
learned in the law and stated by them
to be in every way lawful.
"Although the Sherman act has been
In force for more than 20 years, it was
never before supposed that a contract
of the kind in question offended
against it.
"This long litigation has been a
source of great expense and care to
my client and he is now, while un
afraid, unwilling further to litigate,
and so he makes this plea for the pur
pose of concluding an action that. If
continued, would entail still greater
expense, trouble and annoyance, both
to himself and to the government."
COLLUSION IN DIVORCE
ACTION, CHARGES WIFE
Mrs. M. E. Sheffield Says
Husband Hired Attorney
to Represent Her
The c-barge that Arthur C. Sheffield
of Rochester. N. V., entered into a plot
to divorce her is containfc! In a suit
to set aside the judgment filed yester
day in the superior court by Mary E.
Sheffield.
Mrs. Sheffield declares that she knew
nothing of the divorce suit or of the
entry of a decree at San Mateo May 20.
1912. in his favor. She denies the al
legations of cruelty made by her hus
ba n fI.
Mrs. Sheffield states that Bhe was
married to Sheffield at Rochester in
1893. She alleges that about March
31 of last year Sheffield left her,
ostensibly to make a journey to Cali
fornia. She says he gave her $120 to
last her during his absence and that
previously he had been giving her $50
a month for spending money.
Mrs. Sheffield says that they had
completed an $8,000 residence, at the
time her husband left home and that
he owned a printing business that
brought him an income of $15,000 a;
year.
She charges that on April 10, 1912,
a suit for divor'-e was filed in San
Mateo county by her husband, unknown
to her; that she received a copy of
the summons, but did not understand
what the document meant and that
she was not aware that an Interlocu
tory decree had been entered against
her. Mrs. Sheffield accounts for her
failure to apprehend the facts because
her husband's sister, Nettie Dalton,
"cajoled, hounded and importuned her
Into admitting service of the sum
mons."
Mrs. Sheffield avers that her husband
was not a legal resident of the state
at the time of his divorce, and that he
never voted in California. She charges
that her husband paid an attorney to
represent her: that she knew nothing
of the employment of the attorney and
that the latter had entered into col
lusion with her husband to perpetrate
a fraud' upon the court.
That Dr. Robert E. Pierce owed his
former wife, Frances P. Pierce, $10,000
back alimony was the showing upon
which Judjs-e F. H. Dunne yesterday
Issued an order citing Doctor Pierce to
show cause why he had not compiled
with a court order directing him to pay
Mrs. Pierce $100 a month.
Mrs. Pierce obtained an Interlocutory
decree with alimony on November 16,
1900. The physician, who has property
holdings in northern California, paid
alimony on October 1, 1904. Since then
$10,000 has accrued.
The following were granted inter
locutory decrees of divorce:
By Judge Van Nostrand—Sophie C.
from Lawrence J. Keogan, desertion;
William J. from Nellie Oummings, infi
delity; May from Joseph Mclnerney,
desertion.
By Judge Graham—Mollie from Jacob
Goldstein, failure to provide.
By Judge Seawell—Clara A. from J.
E. Z. Fowle, desertion.
The following complaints were filed:
Josephine against Fellclano Cltraro,
cruelty; Emma E. against John R.
Reilly, cruelty; Robert E. against Min
nie Franklin, cruelty; Gesa against
Louis Brunig. cruelty; Estelle against
Rocco de Pierro, failure to provide;
Sabine E. against Byron L. Davenport!
cruelty; Blanche E. against William
Herting, neglect; Mary F. against J. D.
Adelstein, desertion; Elsie against
Charles F. Webber, failure to provide;
Margaret M. against Charles F. Moock,
cruelty.

CHICAGO AFFAIR TO
BE MINOR DISPLAY
Reports of Officers Made
Show Progress—New
Officials Chosen
Plans for a land show that will sur
pass the Chicago yearly land show were
discussed by members of the Real Es
tate board yesterday at the eighth
annual meeting. The event will be
held 10 days in October and will be
something never equaled on the Pacific
coast. Charles Kendrick, chairman of
the committee In charge, reports
progress. The committee includes C.
M. Wooster, J. H. R*ucker, F. ML Pick
ering and B. N. Nelson.
This event will mark the beginning
of a campaign of local realty firms to
localize the California realty market
in San Francisco. The development of
real estate operations in country lands
has been so great during the last few
years that realty centers in cities
throughout this section of the* state
have been unable to handle them, ac
cording to local operators.
The majority of the big -country land
developments are being financed in San
Francisco and Oakland and the develop
ments have been so extensive as to
reach beyond the operations of the
realty concerns* In Fresno, Stockton and
such points. The tendency has been to
ward centralizing the disposal of these
lands from San Francisco.
For many years land shows have
been held in Fresno, Stockton, Merced,
Sacramento and other cities, while
none have been held in San Francisco.
The real estate board, finding that a
great volume of country business is
being transacted through San Fran
cisco, has planned one to Indicate this
to the people of San Francisco, and,
like Chicago, establish and advertise
San Francisco as the market.
Mr. Kendrick gave a vivid Idea of
what the affair will be. It will be
along the lines of an Industrial exhi
bition. Every county in the state will
he asked to take part and exhibit its
products and manufactures.
The meeting, at a luncheon at a
downtown cafe, was one of the largest
ever held. There were 125 present.
President A. E. Henderson reported
that the commission schedule adopted
a year ago is nearlng perfection and
*has been well received, and added that
the committee handling this commis
sion question Is arranging new details
for perfecting changes. This commit
tee includes Samuel O. Buckbee, John
T. Harmes. J. R. Howell, T. L. Hen
derson and I). Coffin.
Mr. Buckbee outlined salient points
in proposed minor changes.
Secretary Leslie E. Burke reported
38 new active memlvrs and four new
associate members, bringing the mem
bership to 244.
William B. White, chairman of the
legislative committee, reported on the
proposed unlawful detainer bill, and
asked that every realty man of the
city write to some assemblyman or
state senator urging Its passage.
Following the speeches, T. L. Hen
derson, Guy T. Way man. Louis H.
Mooser and Emil Kahn were elected
directors to serve three years.
After the regular meeting the direc
tors elected A. 1,. Harrigan president.
Guy T. Wayman first vice president. D.
Coffin second vice president. T. L. Hen
derson treasurer and secretary*? and
Leslie E. Burks attorney.
PROPERTY SOLD FOR
TUNNEL ASSESSMENT
Tbe sale of delinquent Stockton
street tunnel nssessment properly was
held yesterday, netting $11,224.7*, an
insignificant sum compared with what
was originally outstanding.
The properties were sold at the
lowing prices:
A. M. Simpson. $3,017: Telegraph
Hill NeiKhborhood association. $506.93;
c.-irollne A. Painter. $281.87; .1. A.

and county, $2.30.
The city and county property in
volved consisted of a six foot strip
cut off a city lot In Powell street by
the boundary of the assessment dis
trict. Attorney Hugo Asher paid the
amount of the claim against this, the
exact ownership of which seems to be
somewhat ln doubt.
P. F. Pundon's lot was bid in by
D. E. Stafford, a relative. The other
lots concerned were bid in by the city.
Finicky Appetites
Put in Order
You Can Sit Right Down and Eat Any
thing Senred If You Get Acquainted
With Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
With a most pathetic sigh the dys
peptic sits down and "views with
alarm" his hungry companions. Now,
the best doctrine for most people to
hand out to suffering stomachs is to
couple a square meal with Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets. To sit down to a good
meal and eat whatever is served is
getting back to the good old days when
grand-dad carved the roast; when the
family made a clean-up; and when good
appetites with sound digestion pro
duced the men and women that have
made our nation what it is.
Stuart's Dyßpepsia Tablets are the
dyspeptic's hope. They are a natural
restorative of healthy action to the
stomach and small Intestines, because
they supply the elements that the weak
stomach lacks—pepsin, golden seal and
other digestives.
If you are afflicted with any symp
toms of stomach trouble be assured
that your digestive organs are losing
power; they need help and there is no
more sensible help to be given them
than to supply elements which will do
the work of digestion for them.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been
found by test to have digestive powers,
one grain Of the active principle of
these tablets being sufficient to digest
3.000 grains of ordinary food. It is
plain that no matter what the condi
tion of your stomach, or how far your
disease has progressed, one of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets taken at meal-time
will do the work —give your stomach
an opportunity to regain Its lost pow
er*, the muscles will be strengthened,
the glands invigorated, and you will be
a new man.
