PHIL'S FOUR HUNDRED.
Not Society People or Voters, but
Dollars.
How One cf the Bepablican Bosses Fell
Against & Smooth Box and a Smoother
Manipulator end Came Oat Loser.
He was a stranger and Phil Crlmmins
took him in. That is, Phil thought lie took
him in, but now Phillip mounts the loss of
$460 in gold coin of the realm, and for his
morning exercise eoes out and kicks him
self around his own back yard.
Being in politics with Mr. Kelly, etc.,
etc., etc.. Mr. Phil Crimralns Is no respecter
of persons. Anybody old enough or nearly
old enough to vote, and with money, is wel
come to 16 Third street, and Phil sees to It
that the steam beer is drawn sharp and the
free lunch is unhampered lor the customer.
In fact Phil is said to be on the lookout
for "likely" strangers, and even If they
Daren't a bit he treats them well and tells
them to keep away from ihe "colonel."
The other day a well-dressed stranger
drifted into Phil's place and bought a glass
of beer. He loafed around awhile and
bought another glass of beer, and then
Phil cot to talking with him. The bo3s
found the stranger to be aman of sense and
discretion, and moreover he had various
and numerous twenty dollar pieces in his
pocket. Pnil liked the fellow, and the fellow
liked Pull. There was more beer, au invi
tation to call again with a hint that maybe
"a bright fellow could be used later on,"
and the stranger went away.
lie came in night after night and still
kept "flashing" his golden twenties on the
bar in payment for plebeian beer.
Finally, on Saturday night last, the prom
ising stranger dropped into 16 Third street
and found Phil Crinmiins idle. They had
one glass of beer, then two and finally one
more, and then began to shake dice for £1
a side.
Phil had his lucky box and In no time
was £60 ahead ol the game. Then the
stranger proposed a buttle of wine instead
of everyday, cotnmou beer, and Phil
smiled and said "certainly."
They drank the first bottle and continued
to shake between drinks, and suddenly the
stranger suggested a second bottle of the
sparkling beverage.
Then it was that Phil realized that he
was more than £200 loser instead of £60
winner, but the second bottle was ordered
and the game went on.
When the game closed poor Phil was out
of pocket £460 and the stranger was still
ready for more wine and more money.
Suddenly th*« great boss grasped the dice
box with which he arid the "promising"
stranger had been playing.
One glance, a howl, and the bos* danced
about the room tearing his hair. The
stranzer had substituted a smooth box for
Phil's own pet leather cup and Phil had
never discovered it.
They do say that Crimmins kicked about
losing the money and threatened the fascin
ating stranger with arrest ana all the sub
sequent evils that a mighty pull could
shower upon him, but the stranger only
smiled, bought another "sharp steam,"
drank alone, and drifted out into toe fug
and oblivion.
The henchmen who have approached Phil
since have talked to him In whispers, but
be is jet £460 out.
SANDBAGGED AND ROBBED.
HA Belated Citizen's Experience la the
Minion Warm Kelt.
The tall man and the short man who be
came famous through the boldness with
which they garroted benighted wayfarers a"
few years ago have resumed their Dick
Tnrpln operations in the Mission.
At a very early hour yesterday morning a
man giving the name of F. Oliver and his
residence as South San Francisco ap-
Droached Policeman Brlgartes, who was
patrolling bis beat on Howard street, and
informed him that he had been sandbagged
and robbed of his valuables. The officer
accompanied Oliver to the scene of the rob
bery, which occurred on Twenty-second
street, near Howard, but found no trace of
the highwaymen. All the neighboring sa
loons and grocery-stores in the vicinity
were thoroughly searched, but without suc
cess, and the thieves made good their escape
with their booty.
When relating the story of the robbery
Oliver stated that while walking up Twen
ty-second street he noticed that he was be
ing followed by some one, while on the
other side of the street another man kept
■lightly ahead of him. When the corner of
Howard was passed he received a sudden
blow on the back of the head from behind
and fell to the. sidewalk badly dazed. The
thieves were evidently old hands at the
business and took the time to remove a
heavy gold ring from his finger besides
taking his money.
Oliver did not know the exact amount hr
bad with him at this time. If his story if
true the robbery was committed within a
few yards of Henry Kemm«'s grocery-store
at the corner of Twenty-second and How
ard streets, which. was open at the time.
Kern mo stated to a reporter that he heard
no noise whatever, and that the first he
- knew of the garroting wa» when the officer
searched his place for the thieves.
: The policemen say that Oliver seemed to
be drunk, although he may have acted so
from the effects of the blow he received on
the bead.

An Old Play Faced Up Well at
the Alcazar.
" School for Scandal " Draws Another Full
House at the Stockwell— " lhe Loit Para
dise" in Its Last Week.
Tne dramatization of Z >\&'s picture of
Parisian life among the Uwly, "L'Assnm
moir," under the English title "Drink,"
was presented to a large audience at the
Alcazar last evening. It is a temperance
story, but very much more picturesque than
those that have been produced on the stage
of the United States, illustrative of
the effects of an inordinate ap
petite for drink among the American
people — "The Drunkard," for example,
that made a largo share of Barnutn's fortune
at the "lecture-room" of his museum in New
York. Zola, from actual observation, and
Charles lleade as his adaptor, have dons
better work than this In a dramatic way.
ink" is a series of sensations consecu
tive in character from beginning to end,
the finale being the death of Coureuu
from delirium tremens, which is hor
rible enough as Mr. Kedmund renderel
It to be a sufficient lecture to the
intemperate drinker to arouse his
will-power of resistance and render the fan
ciful bichloride of cold cure of Keely un
necessary. There was much emphatic act-
Ing all through the piece. We take it that
Air. Leo Cooper filled the first place as Gou
tret, the smith, pledger to total abstinence,
and anxious that his fellow-workmen
should follow his example. His address
to the besotted victims of L'A«sommoir was
splendidly delivered and Had, by the man
ner in which he uttered it. a political
as well as a social bearing. Cooper seemed
to think, and properly, too, that the stage
on this occasion was a pulpit, from which
he was called upon to preach a sermon
suited 10 the times, and he acquitted himself
nobly. Coupeau, ns played by Mr. Ked
muud. was marked an.l distinctive all
through. Good hearted, but weak in brain,
lie paid the forfeit of being unbalanced,
lie was remarkably effective in rendering
all the conditions of his role. For
the women of the cast Miss Bebe
Vining impressed one deeply by the man
ner in which she personated Phoebe, bring
ing out the ham. metallic character of the
Frenchwoman, who prefers sous before
sentiment. "Take care of the centimes,"
she says in one cf her speeches, "and the
francs will take care of themselves." The
feeble-minded Gerv.»l>e was also veil pre
sented by Miss Beatrice Lieb, and the real
i.-tic quarrel in the laundry between herself
and Virginia (Miss Franceses Wakenian).
the woman who had stolen Gervalse's hus
band, haulier (Francis Power), from her,
was the most impressive episode of the
play, if we except the delirium tremen9
fcene. Little Mabel Bowman, daughter of
Gervaise and Coupe<tu, who married the
widow of Lanticr, did some neat juvenile
acting. Altogether, the play is strongly
presented. The cast is in cooil hands.
At the .1.1» in
The Frohman Company continued the ad
mirable presentation of "The Lost Para
dise," which is growing in the estimation
of the community. The strong, character
istic ana consistent acting of the leading
members of this organization is worthy of
all praise.
The Daly Company
Opened trie farewell week of its engage
ment at the Stockwell last evening by re
peating to the largest bouse of the season
the masterly performance of Sheridan's
"School for Scandal." This evening Mr-
Daly will give us an adaptation l-v himself
from the French of Ii teag* and D« Courcy
called "Love in Tandem." It is an eccen
tric comedy and will be acted for the first
time in this city.

Miss Victory Bateman, who has been en
paged for this position, comes from an old
and prominent acting lamily, and has won
dramatic laurels in the great Eastern cities,
bhe has been connected with the best com
panies, and has played leading roles in both
tragedy and comedy. She possesses, there
fore, the versatility demanded by this com
munity. The lady is a niece of Mr. Edwin
Booth, admitted the foremost tragedian of
the American stage. Before leaving for
San Francisco Miss Bateman was en
tertained at a farewell breakfast by
her illustrious uncle, at which repre
eentatlvea or the New York, Boston
and Philadelphia Dress were guests
besides some of the most distinguished peo
ple in New York society. Before parting
Miss Batemau received from Mr. Booth a
valuable souvenir of his love and affection
and also as an earnest of his belief that
his niece would sustain the histrionic fame
of the family. Mi>»» Bateman i* regarded
by the Eastern press as one of lie most fin
ished actresses before the public, and her
dainty beauty elicits admiration from both
texts. The charm of her dressing is one of
her attractions, and lady patrous will be
treated to some new ideas In combinations
of the latest Paris design.

SUPERVISORS.
The Anti-Dive Order Killed Com
pletely Last Night.
Five Bup«ivi*or» Stand Solid Against It—Sev
enteenth-Street Extension Report
Approved.
The proposed amendment to the liquor
license law, by which the Citizens' League
hoped through the aid of the Supervisors
to suppress the dives of the city, was filially
killed at the meeting of the Supervisors
last evening.
Ever since the meeting of the week be
fore it rtas evident that a scheme had been
arranged to defeat the passage of the order
in the Interests of morality aud the general
good welfare of the city.
Prior to that time the Supervisors seemed
to look with favor upon the good work of
the anti-dive crusaders In carrying on the
warfare against vice inaugurated by Tuk
Call.
Then of a sudden Martin Kelly, the Mis
sion-street Junk-dealer ami so-called po
litical boss, took a hand in affairs and even
visited the rooms of the Supervisors per
sonally with the results as stated in The
Call, that six Supervisor* experienced a
change of mind apparently and refused to
sustain the amended order when it came
up for passage.
Mil. TABKR'B REMARKS.
Last night it again came an on a motion
for reconsideration made by Supervisor
Ellert.
Supervisor Taber seconded the motion and
spoke upon the subject He said that when
the matter was voted on at the last meeting
bo was Satisfied that the board did not un
derstand it. The proposed amendment
was not in contlict with the statute of 1877
--78, as claimed by City Attorney Durst,
lie could not believe that any member of
the board would elde with the dive-keepers
as against the good people of the city. He
urged the members to do what the people
expected them i i do.
Supervisor KHert spoke in the same strain,
saying that the principal reason he thouKht
why tne matter wns defeated was that the
City and County Attorney bad given his
opinion adversely to It. He was willing to
be guided by Mr. Durst in the main, but
the latter in this case was in the wrung aud
should not be supported.
Supervisor Ayer could not see how th«law
had chanced since last week. It remained
the snni'i and the amende 1 order was
clearly in coulllct with th*« t»tatute, us Mr.
Durst had said. However treat the neces
sity was for this law, It could not be passed
legally.
THE MOTION LOST.
Supervisor Heyer called for the reading
of the report again. It was read and Mr.
Taber spoke again. He said tu<*re was no
intention 01 interfering with tho retail
liquor men unless they conduct a bOSIBMS
that is not decent. There w*re 1900 girls
and women and 800 men employed in the
dives, but It was better that they should
suffer temporarily by leaving their employ
ment than that the dives should continue
their nefarious work of ruining young men
and women.
A vote was takon on the motion to recon
sider with the following result:
Ayes— Artigue?, Burling, Ellert, Hwyor
and be r, 5.
Noes— Curtis, Ayer, Carnes, Hunt and
Wilkinson, 5.
Ansent— Coffee.
The next matter taken up was the grant
ing of the franchise for a street railroad,
covering nearly 20 miles of streets, to George
Lc Roy ct aI.
When a resolution granting the franchise
came up for passage to print it was lost,
Supervisor Burling being the only member
who voted iv the affirmative.
Resolutions Krautltig the Ferries and Cliff
House Railroad a franchise to extend its
rails along Bay street from Powell to the
seawall, aud the North Beach and Mission
Railroad the ruht to extend in., on Pol-
Koin and Precita place, along Columbia to

The Bright-Ered Little Maiden Charged With
Arson— An Uncontrollable Desire to
See Fire and Smoke.
"Poor little girl! What could have caused
her to do it?"
That is what kind-hearted Matron Gil
more and the official* of the City PrUon
said yesterday afternoon when Fire Mar
shal Towe arrested Maggie Cummings,
aced 15 year«, on a charge of arson. That
the bright-faced, shabbily clad little girl
had started no le<s than 10 incendiary fires
there could be no doubt, for she had made
a complete confession. Tears and heart
reDding, hysterical gestures had punctuated
her admission of eui;t. Was it a fiendish
desire to destroy property and life that ac-
Maggie Cununltigs,
tuated the pretty little miss, or waa her
work the uncontrollable desire of a pyro
nianiae? That was the question (.fficera
and reporters tried to solve. The majority
favored the latter theory. ller« are the
circumstauces that led up to Maggie's ar
rest:
On June 16 Maggie went to work as a
servant girl ior Mrs. Eichwald at 15 iloliis
street. Scon after h.-r advent into the
house the family Buffered from a series of
most iiivsten»'us annoyances. At midnight
and early hours iv the morning tne door
bell would ring and stones and lumps of coal
wouid crash through the windows. No one
suspected Maggm of being the author of the
annoyances. Neither was she suspected of
Irrs tbat occurred in neighboring flitu,
which re nil connected by verandas iti the
rear. Within a per od of a Week eight tires
Started iv the vicinity, aud in several in
•.t.UKi's coal oil hud been poured in the
Spots where the flames were discovered.
Tl:e la*.' fire was on June 38 and it was dis
cover, d in the rear of Uie Biehwald abode,
in every instance the tamos were dis
covered and extinguished in time to prevent
serious damage. Fire Marshal Towe in
vestiitated tbese tires, hut couid learu
nothing U> incriminate any o:ie.
Last Saturday night Mrs. Eichwald de
tected M.^gin in the act of bombarding
wiaaows in the house with cobblestones.
The girl was at once dhvehnrged a:;d sent
with a messenger-boy to tt.e home of tier
parents at Market and Reservoir "treets.
When the Fue Mai-h.il beard of this he
called upon the girl's parents and ques
tioned ti em closely. They were reluctant
to Impart huv miormaiten, but finally ad
mitted that two S»JSterloUfl tires had also
occurred iv their own house. Maggie was
not at home at the time of the official's
visit and I.c left word for her to cdi at bis
ofb>e at ihe new City Hall.
Sbedtd so yeeierday afternoon. When
questioned about the hres s l ie broke down,
wepl hysterically and confe*«ed having
started 10 blazes. In answer to questions
she made aud signed the foiluwiug state
ment:
1 live on tne corner of Market street and Reser
voir avenue. I went to work lor Mrs. Eicbwald.
16 HollU street, ou i lie ICIII of June, but I
staitcd all the tire* in.i; aavebeea started m
tie buuse at that number Macs 1 have been
there and bioke tie windows In that bouse.
1 round tlie coal oil thai trie tires were. Started
with on tlie ie»r steps or trie middle flat uext
door.
It was in a can, and I took the can. I did this
because 1 bad as uncontrollable deslte to set die
Crcs aud uot because any one oM me to dose.
M.\'. .ii. Cumminus.
With this statement and the sobbing little
prisoner To we went directly to the OSes of
tie Chief of Police. There trie girl repeated
her confession. Then «he was sent down
stairs into the City Prison, locked up on a
charge of arson and placed in the prison
hospital.
Maggio is a slender, frail, little maiden,
with a piettv face, dark brown hair and big
blue res. Neither Mrs. Gilmore, the m th
erly uittron, nor any one else could check
her flow of te»rs. Stie cried out in anguish
when approached by a CALL reporter, and
when asked wnv the started the fires. "On!
I don't know," she wailed. "Something
told in« to do it and I couldn't resist the de
sire to see the lums. I know I have
done wrong, and, oh, how I pity my
poor mother. Since father became sick and
had to sell hi* coal and wood yard, 1 tried
to help my mother by going to work. So I
found a place with Mrs. Eichwaid. The
family treated inn well, and 1 liked then
very much. No, I didn't set tho fires be
cause 1 had auylhlux against the family.
Nobody told me to, either. It was a desire
to see tiio and smoke that I could not con
trol. Poor mother! This will cause her so
much worry and suffering! I'm so sorry
for her! Father, too. will be so worried
when he knows that I'm locked up In jail."
Then the miserable liltio maiden cried
faster than ever, tore her curly locks and
waved her arms frantically. All efforts to
soothe her were without avail, and her visi
tors discreetly withdrew from the hospital.
The prisoner is tho daughter of Rodger
CummingSi who forye ira has been respected
In the neighborhood in which he lives. For
several months ha has been ill, and con
fined to his bed most of the lime. Neither
he nor Mrs. Cuminings can explain to
dangerous eccentricities of the girl. For
several y«nrs «nd up to the June vacation,
Maggie was a pupil at th« convent o( N.itro
Dame 011 lores street. While at 3. boot
her eccentricities manifested themselves.
Often she would startle Ler classmates by
screaming and hurling books across the
room.
Maggie Cummings' sister called to see her
last night aud positively declared that the
little girl whs innocent of the crime charged
agatnst her. She said that Maggie's em
ployer frequently quarreled with his wife
and the little girl thought it was ho who set
fire to th.« house. The hosi»it;il steward oh-
K*rv*d that alter her sister's departure,
Maggie's tongue, which had' wagged quite
freely before the visit, became strangely
mute.
A GREAT WELCOME.
Reception to the Salvation Army's
" Bronoi" Brigade.
Metropolitan Temple was crowded with
Salvationists and their friends last night at
the reception tendered to the cavalry bri
gage of the army on their return Iroiu their
wanderings through the State.
Shortly after 8 o'clock the troopers en
tered, amid th« applause of the large
assemblage. They were 14 In number, and
toil-worn, dust - begrimed warriors they
looked as they passed down the center
ai^le in single file.
The cavalcade had Just arrived from
r.oululi. They were escorted from the ferry
by a great crowd which had gone to meet
them.
The battle-stained warriors on entering
the hall immediately took the platform.
They were: Major Kyle, Captains Taylor,
Campbell, Muyvesaut ami Foster, Lieuten
ants Unwell, li iwne and Pong too SJw.
Private* Kinsman, Taylor, Stewart i«nd
Happy Bill Day.
MHJor Kyi.' opened the proceedings with
the hymn "We'll Follow Our Conquering
-Savior," in which tho audience joined.
The hymn, "Jesus Is Mine." was next sung
by the choir." Captain W. B. Camubell
next delivered a fervent eloquent prayer,
and then Major Kyle addressed thu audi
ence.
"That wo have done much good," said the
major, "no one can doubt. When we
reached the habitation of a Government
employe, far into the desert, he told us it
was the first lime in eight years that a
churchman had set foot in his hi use. At
one town we were met by a delegation of
citiz-Mig who warned us nottu outer it, as we
would surely be arrested. Well, we fouglit
one battle, however, and finally converted
the man who had cau>cd the opposition."
riM ni.ij r stated that during their trnvels.
whtcli had !a s t- d 52 days, 123 meetings had
Men held in diflerent towus. The caval
cade traveled un au average 2."» miles a d«y.
After the address Captain Taylor sang a
nymn and thf o a number of the warriors
related their Individual experience*.
