BUCKLEY FEARS ASSASSINATION. Jake Rudolph, Who Shot at Manager Elliott, Wants More Gore. THE BLIND BOSS ,IN HIDING. The Police Instructed to Search Rudolph for Hidden Weapons. Jake Rudolph is hunting Chris Buckley with a gun and the blind boss in fear of his life has departed from the city and is now in hiding at his ranch, near Liver more. It is a notorious fact that for weeks past Buckley has been attended by a bodyguard. In all his walks about the city his nephew, William Harrison, has followed him, carrying concealed about his person a small but most effective arsenal. The blind ex-boss fears assassination at the hands of his former guide and hench man, Jake Rudolph. Last Wednesday evening Mr. Buckley had a very important appointment to Jake Rudolph, Who Is Handy With Gun. [From a photograph.] keep at the Baldwin Hotel with a couple of gentlemen, one of whom was to leave for the East next day. Early in the even ing, however. Mrs. Doran, daughter of ex- Senator Tim McCarthy, called on Buckley and warned him that if he left the house that night Jake Rudolph would certainly kill him, even if he had to follow the mur der by suicide. The blind man heeded the warning and his appointment at the Bald win was not kept. It is still open in fact for early Thursday morning Mr. Buckley very quietly and unostentatiously departed for his ranch at Livermore and has not since returned. Before leaving Buckley sent word to the police of the danager which threatened him and the patrolmen of every watch were at once furnished with a photograph and description of Rudolph and instructed to stand him up every time they saw him and search him for weapons. If any were found upon him he was to be at once ar rested. Rudolph will be remembered as the man who several months ago entered the Chron icle business ottice carrying a loaded re volver, the contents of which were des tined for the proprietor of that paper. Mr. De Young was not in the office atthe time, and Mr. Elliott, the business manager, hearing Rudolph's threatening language, ordered him out of the building. The would-be assassin did not obey at once, and Elliott grappled with him. A struggle Chris Buckley, the Blind Ex-Boss, Who Is Avoiding Trouble With Jake Rudolph. [From a photograph.] ensued, in which the revolver was dis charged and the bullet found lodgement in some silver coin in Elliott's trousers pocket. Rudolph was charged with intent to com mit murder, but escaped the penitentiary by a plea of insanity. He was sent to the asy lum at Stockton, and a few weeks ago was pronounced cured and discharged. His trial for the Elliott affair is set for some time in the dim, distant future, and he has apparently learned that he can with im punity take human life. The cause of the falling out between Buckley and his former right bower is a disagreement over money matters. Rudolph claims that Buckley owes him money, and proposes, if necessary, to "take it out of his hide." The foundation for the claim probably lies in the fact that for years Buckley has held in Rudolph's name and ostensibly for him from 150 to 200 shares of the Little Louisiana Lot tery Company. This has proved a source of considerable profit, and Rudolph has considered it his property. When he was released recently from the Stockton asy lum he went to Buckley and demanded "a Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S.

But when it came to a show- I down and Rudolph got neither stock nor money he made the threats which resulted in the employment of Harrison as a body guard. Rudolph thought that because of his services in the past Buckley should re member him now when the blind man has one and he has none. Buckley, how ever, considers the man so recently from Stockton a "has been" — perhaps also looks* upon himself as sueh — and does not in tend to waste any of his cash. There is a grim humor attached to the case. When Rudolph was brought up for trial for his assault upon Elliott it was Buckley's money that paid his lawyers. Buckley's attorneys brought forward the insanity plea, and Buckley's influence saved Rudolph from San Quentin. Now, Rudolph having learned well the lesson taught him — that he having been once de clared insane can with impunity seek another's life proposes to use his knowl edge against his teacher. patronized BY BURGLARS. The Marguerite Saloon Robbed Three Times in Three Months. The Marguerite saloon, 421 Larkin street, owned by Casey & Palm, was entered by burglars at an early hour yesterday morn ing. The cash-drawer was forced open and about $20 was stolen. The liquors, so far as could be seen, had not been touched. There is a door leading from the saloon to the barber's shop adjoining. The burg lars had forced open this door and ran sacked the shop for money but did not get any. This is the third time within three months that the saloon has been visited by burglars. Each time entrance has been obtained by the side door, and the burg lars, it is presumed, have a duplicate key for this door. The police have been unable to discover who the burglars are. Casey & Palm are seriously thinking about employ ing a special watchman, as it would, they think, be money in their pockets. IN A CONDEMNED CELL NOW. Wife Murderer Patrick J. Col lins Transferred to San Quentin. His Removal From This City Kept Secret for Fear of Trouble. Patrick J. Collins, the wife-murderer, was quietly transferred from the County Jail to San Quentin prison yesterday, and is now in a condemned cell under sentence of death. His removal was kept secret by the Sheriff that the possibility of trouble might be avoided. It was known that he would be given up by the local authorities, who, however, kept the date of his last journey to themselves. At Ip. m. Collins was taken from his cell in the jail and securely hand cuffed. Sheriff "Whelan personally super intended all the arrangements, and Under Sheriff Clack had deputies John F. Curley and J. G. Fitzgerald to escort the con demned man across the bay. The deputies kept Collins between them, while Mr. Clack walked a shore distance behind to see that no attempt could be made to rescue the prisoner. But Collins gave them no trouble. He assured them they need have no fears for him. "I'm perfectly resigned to my fate," he said. "I know I deserve it, and now I've made my peace with God and am ready to meet death." He chatted pleasantly, as if he was go ing on an excursion instead of drawing closer to the shadow of the gallows. At San Quentin Prison he appeared quite cheerful during the preparations for con signing him to quarters in "murderers' row" overlooking the pretty flower garden in the courtyard. His unconcern sur prised the prison officials. "After seventeen months it makes me feel good to get a breath of fresh air and walk in the sunshine," he told them when the captain remarked that he was in singu larly high spirits. Collins is under sentence of death to be hanged at San Quentin on May 3. The death warrant accompanied him and is now in the keeping of Warden Hale. About a year and a half ago he killed his wife in the kindergarten at Second and Folsom streets. She was janitress of the school and was cleaning the place when Collins, under the influence of liquor, went there and demanded money to buy more whisky. For refusing the money she was stabbed to death and then thrown down stairs by her husband. SWEENEY'S BENEFIT. A Good Game of Ball Played at the Haight-Street Grounds. There were not as many lovers of the game of baseball at the Haight-street grounds yesterday as there ought to have been, in view of the fact that the game played was for the benefit of Charley Sweeney, an old-time player, who is at present in need of help. Those, however, who sat on the benches and watched the players were happy, inas much as they witnessed one of the best games that has been played for many a day. It was between the Olympics and a picked nine of professionals. The game was closely contested and resulted in a vic tory for the Olympics, by a score of 4 to 2. The teams were: Olympics— Lunnell, left field; O'Kane, first base; Nealon, cen ter field; Cosgrave, third base; McArdie, second base; Cordes, shortstop; Krelling, right field; Coffin, -.atelier; and Weldon, pitcher. Picked Sullivan, left field; John son, first base; Sweeney, center field; Beckett, second base ; Crowley, third base ; Reilley, shortstop; Levy, right field; O'Neif, catcher; and Kelly, pitcher. It was stated by those who had charge of the matter that while the attendance was not as large as it might have been, many tickets were sold and Sweeney would re ceive a neat sum'of money. DAYLIGHT EOBBEEY. A Box of Opium Abstracted From an Express-Wagon. A daring robbery was committed in broad daylight on Battery street on Tues day last, and since then the police have been vainly endeavoring to discover the identity of the robber. Lee Chung, an expressman, was taking $550 worth of opium from a bonded ware house to the firm of Kong Sing Sung, 739 Commercial street. Between Broadway and Pacific street the box containiug the opium was stolen from the express-wagon. Chung saw it in the wagon at Broadway, but when he reached Pacific street it could not be found. The police were at once notified and it was ascertained that the thief carried the box to a blacksmith's place on Vallejo street, where it was opened and the drug removed and carried off in a sack. THE MORNING CALL, : AN FRANCISCO, MONDAY, MARCH 4, 1595. A VENICE DOWN IN MISSION BAY. Choice Liquid Lots in the Sub ' merged streets Are " To LEASE." BARGAINS FOR THE FROGS. Nondescript Fleets Floating in. the Signboard Thor oughfares. At one time Mission Bay was an arm of the sea. and the free tides flowed in and out along the Potrero shore. But that was in the pioneer period when the water and other early things "came up to Montgom ery street." Afterward Long Bridge con nected North and South San Francisco, but the currents of Mission Bay went to and fro between the piles of the structure and the wash of encircling hills floated away to the ocean. But the civil engineer kept getting far- THE "TO LEASE " HOUSELESS CITY DOWN IN MISSION BAY. , [Sketched for the " Call " by W. A. Coulter.] ther and farther down into Mission Bay, and a solid embankment sprang up be tween the bridge timbers, and the free tides flowed no more in and out to the sea. Then the once moving waters stood still and the impure waste of the bordering hills sank into the stagnant depths. Mission Bay in its prison grew shallow and thick, and on its waveless surface came a vivid green that seemed to be the reflection of the surrounding verdant slopes. But it wasn't. Its torpid depths only reflected the torpid philanthropy of the men who left there a germ-breeding pool to menace the city every time the southerly breezes blew. Other engineers came and staked out streets in the black ooze, whereupon the übiquitous real estate agent notified the frogs and ducks neat choice corners lots were "to lease" and "to rent." This in land lake became not only the dumping place of all the old pile-roosting shanties over its waters, but the basin into which the refuse of the warehouses, factories and lumber yards on its shores is gradually drifting." --"•:' Various and nondescript things float through the watery streets of this Venice in Mission Bay, where prime liquid lots are offered to the pollywogs at positive sacrifices.

THE AMERICAN SLAVE. Rev. E. P. Dennett Talks of the Price ;7v*! 7 » ' of Freedom. • A mass-meeting was held at Metropoli tan Temple, yesterday afternoon under the auspices of the Good Citizens' Committee, and the audience which turned out more than comfortably filled the , spacious auditorium. -; \'. The speaker of the day was Rev. E. P. Dennett, pastor of j the Potrero Methodist Episcopal ; Church, > and he took for his subject, "The . American Slave, or the Price of Freedom." Mr. Dennett is a young, under-sized, clean-shaven man, who cuts his hair in football style and wears spectacles. He has a powerful .voice, and his audience had no difficulty in distinguishing his words. "Some one has '■ said," began the speaker, "that a monarchy is like a ship with decks nil high and dry and all quiet and comfortable aboard, but liable at any moment to strike a rock and go to the bottom. It is also said that a republic is like a raft— it is always covered with the water, but you cannot sink it. "Whatever may be the truth of the simile so far as security is concerned, it is certainly cor rect in the other respect. We in this republic are always in the water, and a good deal of the time in hot water. Our history during tbe 100 years since the declaration of independence has been a history of agitation. Hut twenty years of continuous prosperity has so engrossed us in business that we had left affairs of state to chance. We have been asleep, but now are awakened. A sleeping lion is as harmless as a dead dog, but the roused lion is the forest king. Sleeping Americans are as harmless as Chinese coolies, but awakened become as powerful as Jove's thunderbolts." '.J.-;; The speaker described the American slaves as the ignorant and superstitious. China, given a constitution, would still not be free. Nor are men free who are bound by passions or appetites they cannot con trol. The price of freedom was education, personal purity and self-denial, without which, said the [ speaker, men would be slaves in spite of any constitutional guar antee to the contrary. After the address Rev. J. Q. A. Henry was called to the platform. He spoke briefly, inviting the audience to attend a reception to '- be given him at his church next Friday evening. Secretary H. W. Quitzow spoke of the riots in Savannah, Ga. Robert Emmet's Birthday. The Knights of the Red Branch will celebrate the 117 th anniversary of the birth of Robert Emmet this evening at Metropolitan Temple. For many years past the organization has ob served this event in various ways, and the present occasion promises to be one of unusual interest. The committee having the affair in charge has prepared an excellent programme, consisting of recitations, selections, botn vocal and Instrumental, of Ireland's sweetest music, and an oration by Joseph J. Dwyer. The enter tainment Itself, aside from . the patriotism aroused by the proper observance of . the date of Emmet's birth, is sufficient to insure a large attendance of Irish Americans. :".- — — . -p . RONOOYIERI'S CONCERT. The First of the Series at the Pavilion Was a Success. Roncovieri's American Concert Band was greeted by a large audience at its first concert at the Mechanics' Pavilion last evening, and the numbers were applauded with enthusiasm. The great volume of music from a band of a hundred pieces overcame the disadvantages of the hall in the way of size and acoustic properties. The selections were from classical and popular music. The execution by the band was excellent, and the appreciation of it by the lovers of music present was shown by the very liberal applause at the end of each piece. The novel feature, of course, was the illustration of the pieces by the stereopti con, of 12,000 candle-power, which threw the colors upon the canvas. While each piece was being played one or more pictures were thrown upon the huge canvas behind the band. For in stance, Massenet's "The Angelus" was il lustrated upon the canvas by a copy of Mil let's celebrated picture of the Angelus, and Waldteufel's ."Dream of Childhood" was illustrated by nearly a dozen different views. . The following were the selections played; i "The Dedication of the Temple," Kele ! Bela; "The Angelus," Massenet; "Dreams |of Childhood," AValdteufel; "Monastery ' Bells," Lefebre Wely; intermezzo from "Cavalleria Rusticaha," Mascagni; "Le j Reveil dv Lion." Kontski; overture to ] "Tannhauser," Wagner. The proceeds for the sale of seats for all j the Monday and Saturday concerts are to Igo to some deserving- charities. The chil , dren of the public schools are to be ad mitted free to the Saturday afternoon mat inees, and Superintendent Moulder has di vided the schools into sections for different days to avoid a crush. THE EMMETS WERE BEATEN Closely Contested Game of Gaelic Football at Cen tral Park. San Franciscos, by Fine Com bination Play, Win by One Point. Football as it should be played was ex emplified at Central Park yesterday after noon. The match was between the two Gaelic teams, the Emmets and San Fran ciscos, and the large number of spectators unanimously declared it the speediest and best game of the season. >--\ : It was known that Captain Fred Palmer of the Emmets had made up. his mind to win at all hazards, and \his put the San Franciscos on their mettle. The result was a grand struggle for victory, the San Franciscos winning :by eight points to seven. In the first half the San Franciscos showed superior combination play and compelled the Emmets to • act on the de fense. It was exactly the opposite in the second half, and it looked as if the San Franciscos had almost petered themselves out. ■- J1 7'..'.77. :.' : -:- : : < - - At 3 o'clock sharp the teams lined up as follows: .

A PORTCULLIS OF CHAINS.

And it may be her desire to still run amuck of all established rules that govern society and so keep be fore the public until her drama, hot from the pen of Dan O'Connell, is presented on a",local stage, with herself as the heroine. All the same, she cannot be found in town by a deputy Sheriff, who has been searching for her high and low with a war rant. Early last week, on a motion of At torney Perry, Mrs. Martin was adjudged by Justice of the Peace Barry guilty of contempt of court. She was sentenced to twenty-four hours' imprisonment in the County Jail or to pay a fine of $100. Mrs. Martin heard of this decision.

The sentence never troubled her mind a second time, having been dismissed with a shrug and an impulsive conclusion as to how it should be baffled. Then a warrant was given to a Deputy Sheriff for the arrest of this defiant woman. The official was told that Mrs. Martin could be found any day at the racetrack, where she cut a conspicuous figure. But Mrs. Martin knew more than to go about in her accustomed haunts since she had defied the courts and the laws. The man with the warrant has grown sick of waiting for her to appear at the races, and gave up his task as hopeless. Day and night he* has called at Mrs. Mar tin s handsome residence on Van Ness avenue and Vallejo street as a matter of form, though with far more tantalizing re sults. The dwelling he found barricaded against the intrusion of strangers. Big chains rattle behind the door as it is opened an inch or two for the purpose of holding parley between the besieged and those out side. A cunning little Japanese servant answers the bell. "What you want?" he asks each time the Sheriff's deputy calls. One of his eyes peeps through the chink while he talks. "I want to see Mrs. Martin," the deputy answers. "No sabe you ; no talk English." "Is Mrs. Martin at home?" "No sabe you; no can tell." With that the door is closed, with a slam ming of bolts and locks and a rattling of chains, and the deputy continues to hope he will yet get into the house. "We can do no more," explained Under sheriff Clack yesterday. "The door is chained up and the house so barricaded that a man cannot get inside. Mrs. Mar tin, who was a constant visitor to the race track can't be seen there any more. Nor does she appear around town at all. I un derstand her attorney gave it out that she left town, but we are convinced she is in her house on Van Ness avenue like a feudal baron in his castle, and also that she has set up a defiance to law and order."
