Joseph Breanlt, Wood and Coal Jinn,
It cost Joseph Breault, the proprietor
of a wood yard at 467 Jackson street,
$30 yesterday afternoon to leave his
office for fifteen minutes while he help
ed one of his teamsters load a cord
of wood. During his absence a sneak
thief visited tne office and got away
with the cash in an unlocked safe.
The office is situated close to the
sidewalk, with both a front and a rear
entrance, and, though Mr. Breault was
not more than twenty-five feet away
from a side window where he could
view the interior, it was not difficult
for the thief to secure the money. He
had doubtless been watching the fuel
Iran's action, and probably slipped in
the rear door, quickly appropriated
the safe cash drawer containing the
money and disappeared by way of the
front entrance. The thief's operations
were hurried, as he left $12 in a sec
ond drawer, which is supposed to con
tain only papers.
The police were notified of the theft,
and Detective Werrick was detailed on
the case.

The Visits to Chinatown in Part Cat
Staff Correspondence The St. Paul Globe.
CAMP MERRITT, San Francisco,
Cal., May 27.— There is a tradition hi
San Francisco that a saloonkeeper once
threatened to close his saloon on a Sun
day on account of a death in his
family, and his license was revoked.
Since that time no saloon in 'Frisco has |
ever been known to be closed, At any
rate no saloon has been closed since the
volunteer army began to mobilize at
Camp Merrltt. Everything in the city
of the Golden Gate is wide open day
and night, and soldiers on leave have
no difficulty in finding all the entertain
ment and refreshments they want.
But Col. Reeve has curtailed the lib
erty allowed his men at first, because,
he says, they are all good fellows, and
as commander of the regiment he feels
responsible for their welfare. He be
lieved that there were too many temp
tations for the men in the city, especial
ly in the Chinatown district, and he
issued an order that no passes should
be issued except to men in whom the
captains have the utmost confidence,
and tio pass is for a later hour than
10 o'clock.
The result of this order is that the
Minnesota regiment is the most orderly
in the camp and the most popular with
the citizens of San Francisco. A Min
nesota uniform is a guarantee that the
wearer is a gentleman and he is re
spected as such. ...-■•
The craze for "doing" Cfrir.. "T.vn
struck Chaplain Cre^sey several nights
ago, and he accompanied some officers
through the district. The next night
Chief Hospital Steward Grau made a
tour of the place and wherever he
visited he was told that the chaplain
had been there the previous evening.
His Red Cross chevrons puzzled the
people of Chinatown and they asked
him if he was the assistant chaplain.
Chaplain Cressey and Steward Grau
visited the Cliff Hoai3e and walked
along the sandy beach, which runs
south of the hotel. Becoming tired they
stretched themselves on the sand and
fell asleep.
The afternoon sun was warm, and
the two slee-pers remained for several
hours unconscious of their surround
ings, when they were awakened by a
burning sensation and discovered t-hat
their faces were blistered from the
sun. They made haste back to camp,
and have since been busy peeling long"
strips of cuticle from their faces.
The remarkable hospitality of the
people of San Francisco shows no
abatement. On Thursday evening Mrs.
Alma E. Keith entertained a party of
officers from the Minnesota, Nebraska
and Kansas regiments, at her home
in the city. Not one of her guests was
known by name to her, but she receiv
ed them as though they were all old
friends, and they had a delightful time.
Miss Pearl Noble, a daughter of Quar
termaster Noble, U. S. A., played a
cornet, and the following morning she
visited the Minnesota camp and blew
the bugle calls for extended order drill,
which was held in Golden Gate park.
Miss Noble has several sisters who are
also accomplished musicians.
The Rev. Father Coyle, of St. Ag
nes Catholic church, visited the camp
Monday, and the next day he sent to
Capt. Robinson, of Company C, a great
quantity of roast beef, roast mutton,
sandwiches, cakes, fruit, strawberries,
doughnuts, milk, two dozen hams, and
towels, soap and handkerchiefs for the
men of the company. The boys ate the
food with relish, and, gathering in the
company street, they gave three
hearty cheers for Father Coyle.
A number of Red Cross ladies have
presented woolen night caps to all the
men in the regiment. These caps cover
the head and neck like a cowl and are
very comfortable to sleep in. They
prevent the men from catching cold
when sleeping on the ground, and are
a valuable and much appreciated ad
junct to the men's outfits. Nearly ev
ery man is also provided with pin
cushions, which were presented to the

While the men were at dinner mess
Friday a wagon was driven up to the
fence and the driver announced that
he had a load of presents for the men.
There was a rush over the fence, and
each man was handed a large square
box which, upon being opened, was
found to contain sandwiches, fruit and
cake. A few moments later another
wagon arrived with a load of pies, and
there was another scramble. But there

Capt. Robinson, of Company C, was
riding down town in a Geary street
cable car Thursday afternoon, when
a stranger sitting beside him turned
to him and said:
■"Captain, you may not get cigars to
smoke between San Francisco and
Manila. Let me present you with one."
Captain Robinson accepted the invi
tation, and they got off the car and
entered a cigar store. There the
stranger purchased a box of fifty ci
gars, for which he paid $4.50, and pre
sented it to the astonished captain.
"I never saw the man in my life be
fore and may never see him again,"
paid Capt. Robinson when he exhibited
his present. "I don't even know his
name. These San Francisco people are
1 certainly generous."
An amusing incident, and yet one
that caused no little embarrassment to
at least two persons, occurred Thurs
day morning. A very attractive look
ing French woman called upon Hospi
tal Steward Grau and presented a
basketful of prunes for him for the
sick. She was accompanied by a lit
tle girl. Steward Grau thanked the
woman for the prunes and said they
would be of great benefit to the pa
tients. Turning to the little girl, the
woman said:
"Now, aren't you glad you brought
those prunes to the sick soldiers?"
( "Yes," said the little girl innocently,
"and mama will be very glad to get

His Testimony Goes to Show the
Alleged Pact That His Relations
With Mrs. Stocking Were Friend
ly After the Time She Had Writ
ten Him That She Coald Not A^ntii
Live With Him.
In the Stocking case yesterday the
defense of the plaintiff to the charge
made in the demand for a cross bill
was begun. It was demonstrated that
'Mr. Stocking's case will be a denial of
the charge of an existent disease that
.would be a cause for divorce. When
Mr. Stocking himself took the stand
he proceeded to give such testimony as
would go to show that Mrs. Stocking
was not disaffected to him herself, but
that she was influenced by her people
in separating from him.
The morning session in Judge Lewis'
court was given up to more of the un
printable expert testimony that was ad'
duced on the previous day.
Dr. Day, who had been the family
physician of Mr. Stocking for a quar
ter of a century, went on the stand,
and said in effect that he had exam
ined the physical condition of the plain
tiff May 3, 1596, and that at that time
he gave no evidence of suffering from
the disease in question. This was im
portant, in view of the fact that the
marriage took place but two weeks be
Dr. Wheaton said that the conditions
testified to as being proof of the pres
ence of infection \>y the disease, given
by Drs. Lufkin, Butler and Allen,
would not really indicate the presence
of the disease, the testimony being a
body blow for the contention of Mr.
Tighe. The doctor said that the con
dition of Mr. Stocking's mouth would
simply show the presence of stomatitis,
a local condition obtaining in certain
stomach troubles. He had examined
Mr. Stocking in September, 1897.
Mr. Stocking took the stand in the af
ternoon, and a great portion of his tes
timony went to the explanation of let-

White Goods.
Two cases of White Goods
came to us the other day at a
ters that were already in or were put
in evidence.
His testimony went particularly to
the showing of the alleged fact that
his relations with his wife had been
smicable after the time when she had
written him that things had come to
her knowledge which prevented her
living with him again. It seemed that
he had got a letter from her on Christ
mas day. 1896, in which she told what
she had been told had occurred physi
cally. He wrote her at once and fol
lowed the letter up personally, going to
Cincinnati the same night. She had
met him there and had gone to the
same hotel with him.
While he was leading up to this part
of his testimony, Mrs. Stocking's usual
pallid face flushed to a rosy tint.
"We went to a room In the hotel,"
said Mr. Stocking, "and had a long
talk — the only candid talk we ever had.
She told me that she kn^w there was
nothing in the charge she had made.
I asked her if she was going back to
her folks at St. Thomas, and she paid
no. Then I told her I would go down
stairs and order a room for her if she
left the hotel. She told me that she
would scream If I left the room. She
said: 'You don't like my folks, and I
don't like your daughter, and that is
all the trouble there is.'
"The next day she went hack to her
sisters, and I came to St. Paul to ar
range my affairs so that I might ac
company her- to wherever she desired
to go for the winter."
Here another letter was introduced,
which was written after this interview
at Cincinnati, which was couched by
Mrs. Stocking in the most affectionate
of terms and indicated that they would
soon meet.
It is not likely that the trial will be
concluded today.
QneMton of n Surety Company Aprain
The assembly committee on ways and
means discussed the question of the city
treasurer furnishing a surety bond for en
hour or more yesterday afternoon, and (hen
adjourned until this afternoon, when the on

Under the charter the treasurer Is oblig-d
to give a bond in the sum of $500, C00, the
sureties to be passed, on by the council.

and the Fidelity and Deposit company, boh
