SALESMAN GREETS MATE CALMLY AND DRAWS REVOLVER Youth Attacks Hyman Gold berg After Father Fires Fatal Shots Into Mother's Body OAKLAND, Feb. Sl. —Hyman Gold berg, a traveling salesman, in a jealous rage at 11 o'clock this morning shot his wife. Rose Goldberg, to death in a flat she occupied at 137 Twelfth street, and Avas killed a few rnintes later by his 800, Charles, 18 years old, who wrested the revolver from him and shot him down with the last two charges in the weapon. Goldberg and his wife died almost instantly. The double tragedy marked a climax to 10 years of bickering and quarreling: between the pair, which began in New York city, where the couple were mar-» ricd. Mrs. Goldberfc, 41 years old, l|ft her huslwnd, who was 44 years old, a year and a half ago, and last Septem ber filed a suit for divorce, alleging cruelty and failure to provide. LIVED I\ FEAR OF HUSBAND Goldberg was then living in Port land and through an attorney of the northern city filed a cross complaint, allppring infidelity. The case had been postponed several times and was set for final hearing next Monday morning. Mrs. Goldberg had lived in fear of her husband for a long time. She had asked her attorneys. Samuels & Magnus, when the case was called for last Monday, to ask for a postpone ment. She grave as her reason that some one had called her up over the telephone and had threatened her life. She was sure it was her husband. Before that time Goldberg had written her letters In which he said he would kill her if she pressed the suit. i.REETS HER CALMLY; FIRES When Goldberg arrived at the flat this morning Mrs. Henrietta Blaustein, mother of Stanley Blaustein, an East Oakland druggist, who had been men tioned in Goldberg's cross complaint as breaking up the Goldberg home, was present. Goldberg brushed past the aged woman and entered the kitchen, where Mrs. Goldberg stood, fully < dressed, and about to leave for San Francisco. Goldberg greeted her calmly and the next instant drew a revolver and began '< firing. The first shot struck Mrs. Gold- ! berg in the neck, the bullet penetrating ! the base of the brain. The woman sank to the floor and Goldberg stood over her to fire again when their eon, Charles, who had been asleep in a near by room, rushed in and began grap pling with his father. Goldberg, beside himself with rag-e, aimed the weapon at his son and fired twice, both shots going wild. Young Goldberg then succeeded in wrenching the revolver from his parent's hands and shot twice, one bullet entering the r*eck and the other in the back of his father's head. Both wounds were fatal. The youth then called up the police sta tion, telling of the double tragedy, and the police and ambulance arrived a few minutes later. FATHER MAKES THREAT Young Goldberg is a night clerk in a drug store in San Francisco and had only retired a short time before his father entered. When he went to grap ple with the older man his father said to him: "I'm going to kill you and then kill myself." A terrific struggle followed between the two. the fight taking place but a few feet from the body of the dying woman. Young Goldberg was locked up at the police station, but no charge has been placed against him. lie probably will be charged with manslaughter and will plead self-defense. Inspectors Harry Grean, Thomas Gallagher and James Drew were detailed on the case. The Goldbergs had lived in Oakland fo. about five years. Goldberg was always Insanely jealous of his wife, and a year and a half ago she found it impossible to live with him any longer, according to her friends, and the couple separated. About six months ago Goldberg, upon returning from Portland, went to the home and a scene followed. Mrs. Goldberg had him ar rested for battery and for disturbing her peace, but failed to file a complaint and he was released. QX'ARREL FOR 10 YEARS The Goldbergs were married in 1891. Tn his cross complaint Goldberg alleged that their troubles began in Brooklyn 10 years ago, when his wife met Blau stein. The Goldbergs came to Oakland with their three children—Charier,, Martin, who is a cigar clerk at the Hotel Oakland, and Edward, 12 years old, who attends the high school. Gold berg charged further in his answer to the divorce suit that Blaustein and his wife posed as brother and sister and on one occasion went to Bakersfleld together. Mrs. Goldberg, according to Goldberg, pawned a valuable pair of diamond earrings and gave the pro ceeds from these, with an additional $1,000. to Blaustein, which he Iβ said to have invested in his drug store at First avenue and East Twelfth street. Goldberg went to Seattle in Septem ber, 191-1, and is accused by his son of squandering more than $30,000 in gam bling and in playing the horse races, lie is said to have attempted suicide about that time. He aleo is said to have made a second attempt upon his life In Oakland a few months after that. SAID HE WOULD HUXT HER While the divorce suit was pending Mrs. Goldberg received a letter from her husband when was written in Port land. It read in part as follows: "I will hunt you as long as my eyes will be open and I will follow you. Of < ourse you have three protectors, but they will not do you any good, because I will be good and when I see you, as I have nothing to lose. I have only a short time to live in this world." Mervyn Samuels, one of the attor neys for Mrs. Goldberg, today said that he did not know that Goldberg had come to Oakland, and, in spite of Mrs. Goldberg's fears, did not believe that I her life was in danger. Young Goldberg told a straightfor ward story of the shooting to the po lice, and gave much aid to the detect ives in clearing up the tragedy. 81. A U STEIN ANSWERS CHARGES Stanley Blaustein. answering Gold bergs charges, said tonight: •] had known the Goldbergs for 14 years, and Goldberg came to Oakland with inc. He had made certain charges against rn,e in a cross complaint to the divorce suit Mrs. Goldberg tiled, but 1 deny that I broke up the Goldberg home. Goldberg himself was responsi ble for his troubles, because he was always insanely jealous and made it impossible for his wife to live with him. "I was in Bakersfleld in 1909 and Mrs. Goldberg did come there, but she only stayed one day and we did not pose as sister and brother. Goldberg bad intended to buy a hotel there, but because his credit was bad wherever he h:id lived, he had to send his wife to negotiate the deal. It is true that Mrs. <;r>kiberg gave me $1,000, but in return f*; this I gave him stock worjU $1,500 ib my drugstore," Son Kills Wife Slayer Shooting Ends Quarrel Mrs. Rose Goldberg, r»ho Was slain b$ het husband in Oakland yester day, and Charles Goldberg, her son, n>/io fcf7/e</ his father in an endeavor to save the life of his mother. ~ STURDY PEASANTS BENEFIT TO CITY Robert Newton Lynch Says Immigrants Should Be Welcomed San Francisco is in no danger of being overrun by hordes of unde sirable immigrants from Europe with the opening of the Panama canal. On the contrary, this city and California will be benefited to an immeasurable extent by the acquisition of the sturdy peasants who will flock to the "land of the free," seeking homes in which to raise their families so that the boys and girls will become good citi zens and be a credit to their adopted country. This was the tenor of a speech by Robert Newton Lynch of the Califor nia Development board before nearly 100 members and guests of the New Era league at its monthly meeting and luncheon yesterday afternoon in the Stewart hotel. Mr. Lynch, in a brief talk, threw a new light on the immi gration question. He advised the many prominent women present to en gage in the work of preparing to as sist the newcomers on their arrival here. Captain Prank Ainsworth, in spector in charge of the immigration service at this port, gave a few statis tics in regard to the landing of aliens in San Francisco. NEWSPAPER MEN TALK W. W. Chapin and C. H. Brock hagen, publisher and business man ager of The Call respectively, each made a brief address. Mr. Chapin said that The Call stood for woman suffrage and that it would back any movement toward securing the right of suffrage for the women of the United States. Mr.». Arthur "W. Cornwall, 'editor of the Women's Citizen, and Mrs. C. M. Booth, president of the New Era league of Vallejo, made short ad dresses. Mrs. Booth toid interestingly of the work accomplished in Vallejo by the members of the league, which, she said, was growing more rapidly than even its founders hoped for. IfIV. George Sperry, widely known for her work as chairman of the wel fare department of the New Era league, presided at the meeting and introduced the various speakers. MANY WOMEN ATTEND Luncheon was served on the taste fully decorated tables at 12:30 o'clock. Many well known San Francisco women were in attendance at the re ception following the business session. Which was particularly snthusiastic and entertaining. Much interest is manifested by the club members in the meeting which will be held at the St. Francis hotel under the auspices of the New Era league on the night of March 7, when the subject of discussion will be "Mv- 1 nicipal Extension of Street Railways." ! Invitations have been extended to a large number of public officials, who will present their views on the ques tion. A large attendance is promised.

HOWARD IS AFTER ANOTHER TRAIN Buick Distributer Is at Flint in Effort to Set New Record LEON J. PINKSON Not content with the records he has already established in bringing train loads of automebiles to the coast, C. S. Howard, head of the Howard Automo bilo company, coast distributers of the Fuick line, who is et present at the Buick factory at Flint, is endeavoring to arrange for a second special train load of 1913 Buieks to be shipped from the Michigan plant early in March. In a letter received yesterday by R. K. Roberts, manager of the local com pany, from Mr. Howard, he states that although he is exerting every energy he is experiencing considerable trouble in arranging for another trainload, as the factory officials fear they will not be able to turn over 380 cars to him in addition to his regular weekly allot ment. "Business is now looking up throughout the east," writes Mr. How ard, "and there is every indication that the 1913 season will be another big year in which the Buick line will figure as conspicuously as in 1912. Up to February 1 the Buick factory shipped 15,000 of the 1913 models. Of which number the Howard branches have secured 1,700 cars." Mr. Howard Will remain at the fac tory for the next few days in an effort to secure the coveted trainload ship ment, and will then return to San Francisco. Morrtium Agraln In City—A. E. Mor rison, western sales manager of th*n R. C. H. corporation, returned yesterday from a conference at the Detroit fac tory and a visit to the Chicago show. Mr. Morrison says the R. C. H. line was quite a factor at the exhibit and many orders were booked by dealers in all parts of the country. The R. ,0. H. corporation looks upon the selection of the H. O. Harrison company as Cali fornia distributers of the line as a most fortunate one, for the officials feel cer tain the Harrison organization Is sure to aid It in disposing of at least 2,000 cars during the present season. Johnston Rrturnii Prom Chicago—W. R. Johnston, Pacific coast manager of the Stewart-Warner Speedometer cor poration, has just returned from a visit to the company's headquarters in Chi cago and while there naturally spent some time at the show, which, he says, was the finest in the history of the industry. Johnston says the reorgan ized Stewart-Warner company is plan ning big things in the speedometer line in the near future. -;:- * -" Haync« Owner* to Tour Hawaii— Two prominent Oakland families are now en route to Hawaii, the. romantic and scenic realms of which they will explore in their respective Haynes cars.

SHORT LINE, SAYS LOMAX Western Pacific Traffic Head Denies His Company Seeks Use of the Benicia Cutoff K. Iα Lomax, passenger traffic man ager of the Western Pacific, said last tiight the- published reports that the Western Pacific, in objecting to the proposed preferential leases, trackage rights and terminal facilities within city limits between the Central and Southern 'Pacific, wants the right to run their trains over the Central and Southern Pacific Beniola short line be tween Sacramento and Oakland, is In correct. '•The Western Pacific may never have occasion to run their trains over the Benlcia short line, but they do not propose to be shut out for 999 years from use of terminal tracks and in dustrial facilities within ciiy limits, 'vhich is included in the proposition," sitld Mr. Lomax. 1 VFAIR BASIS CHARGEp "The Western Pacific's principal ob jection to the proposed arrangement between the Central and Southern Pa cific Is, that if the monopoly is re newed the Western Pacific will not be permitted to handle freight to and I from terminals and industrial side '. tracks owned by Central and Southern ! Pacific, except upon the onerous and 1 unfair basis which has been demanded by the Southern Pacific in the past, and is evidently the Intention of the Central and Southern Pacific to con tinue. "If the decree of the supreme court that the Union Pacific and the South ern Pacific are to dissolve the monop oly which has existed, is to be carried out and the Union Pacific and its purchased line, the Central Pacific, is to compete with the Southern Pacific, then the Western Pacific becomes a competitor of the Central and Union Pacific. The Southern Pacific should not grant any exclusive rights or pref erential interchanges to one competi tor, namely the Central Pacific, that it does not grant other competitors, the Western Pacific, for instance." PROPOSED DEAL WORST MONOPOLY "The Western Pacific takes the posi tion that the provision in the operating agreement now under consideration by the railroad commission, with refer ence to the joint use of industry tracks at junction points within city limits, Including San Francisco and Oakland, continues th* existing monopoly of the Central and Southern Pacific over prac tically the entire territory of central j California anfl San Francisco bay, to the exclusion not only of the Western Pacific but also any and all other roads seeking , to operate in this territory. "It further takes the position that, though ordered te dissolve the exist ing combination, by Attorney General Wickersham, the Southern and Central Pacific, in a new guise and undercolor of lavr, seeks and desires the railroad commission to place the stamp of ap proval on a combination that, if any thing, is stronger and more binding than the one previously existing. "In the present arrangement for in terchange of fretgbt between the Western Pacific! and the Southern Pa cific, when coming from or destined to industrial sidetracks owned by the Cen tral Pacific and Southern Pacific, re spectively, in Sacramento, Stockton, Oakland, San Francisco and other points, the Western Pacific Is forced to allow the Southern Pacific for a purely switching service a minimum of 7% per cent of the Missouri river rate when such tracks are located within city limits. NOT PERMITTED IX OTHER STATES "But when corning from or destined to such tracks as are located dutside of city limits and interchanged at Marysville, Sacramento, Stockton and San Francisco, the Western Pacific is forced to allow the Southern Pacific a minimum of 23 per cent of the Missouri river rate, or one-half the total revenue of the Western Pacific railway between Salt Lake City and destination, for their haul to and from such junction, regardless of distance. "This gives the Southern Pacific a minimum revenue as great as the total revenue the Western Pacific receives for its haul from Salt Lake City to points of interchange. "It is the custem, and has been for a great many years, in all other terri tory throughout the country—Omaha, Kansas City, Chiqago, St. Louis, New York and Jersey Gity—for the lines to participate in business originating on or destined to industrial and terminal tracks. For such service the usual switching charges range from |2 to $5 per car. "It is a well known fact that the Union Pacific permits and accepts this same privilege at common points with other lines in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado, and in fact all eastern terri tory served by their line. There is no reason why the people of California should permit their indystrles to be subject to such extortionate charges as do not prevail in any other state." TO DEDICATE PLAYGROUND Father Crotvley Will Represent Mayor Rolph at Cemetery Father I). O. Crowley, president of the playground commission, is to rep resent Mayor Rolph this morning at 10 o'clock at the dedication of the Kover all playground in Valencia street be tween Thirteenth and Fourteenth.

O'Farrell Loses Action Involv- Ihk Bequest Made by Relative to Diocese ■Judge Mogan, in a decision yesterday granting title to the Roman Catholic Archbishop of San Francisco, a dbr poration, to 103 pieces of property In San Francisco, held that the plaintiff is entitled to possession of a lot at Ninth and Mission streets, bequeathed by the late Teresa Wenninger. Louis ,J. O'Farrell, nephew of Mrs. Weninger. contested the corporation's right, alleging that Archbishop Ridr dan. as Mrp. Weninger's spiritual ad viser, had no right to accept the gift on behalf of .the church. Judge Mogan, following a decision by Judge TCmmet Seawell at Santa Rosa in a similar suit, held that the arch bishop did not receive the bequest as spiritual adviser. O'Farrell also attacked the corpora tion on the ground that it had lapsed since the original incorpdtator, Arch bishop Alemany. relinquished the dio cese. Judge Mogan ruled against O'Farreli, holding that, it would be im possible, under the code of civil pro cedure, to deny benefits to a corpora tion and at the same time seek to tuke away its privileges. Attorney Faow Fraud Trial—Camp boll \oung of New *¥ork, who Is thought to be Alexander Cameron Youngr, v a disbarred attorney of the east, appeared before Police Judge Deasy yesterday and was instructed and arraigned on a charge of passing a worthless check for $5.50.

' — -- I ■"'■'■ let us place a home within your grasp / ' r f ft / / /A "til* _____r s v ' / '/ / / / WEfIT ________^__^___| It is better to buy once and buy right than make the mistake of juggling with your earn mgs. The man who saves up a few hundred dollars towards his home, or the man who has not accumulated even that much, but is thrifty, earnest and ambitious, must exercise the greatest care in choosing the district in which he is to live. A mistake would be costly and mean the loss of a sum he could ill afford to waste. Ex perimenting with the home question is attended by too many risks to warrant taking the chance. We know of men credited with more than average business acumen who have been trying for three or four years to sell their property at only a slierht advance over what it cost them. They have been unsuccessful solely through their failure to carefully analyze the situation at the time they bought. Either the lot was small and poorly located, the house poorly arranged and not prop erly constructed, or they paid too much for one or the other—or both. Any one of these deterrent factors or one of a half dozen others which might b» enumerated, would seriously affect the disposition of any property which ttfe owner might wish to realize upon in a hurry. Every commodity, whether it be real estate or shoe strings has a certain market value. The Fremont Tract at $15 per Foot has a value which even the untrained eye must read. There is no speculative feature upon which the future of the property hinges. It is not in the process of evolution, dependent upon some extraordinary development to sustain its selling price. It is neither guesswork nor gamble. The man who buys cannot go wrong in choosing the Fremont Tract for his home place. He can know that his property will never depreciate in value and that he can sell to ad vantage if "necessary. All street work, sidewalks, gutters and curbs are in. Restrictions provide against un desirable buildings and exclude Africans and Mongols.
