LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Superintendent of Schools Mc- Clymond's Books Ex perted. STUART McMULLAN'S REPORT. Another Robbery In the Center of Town-Mrs. Smith Bound and Gagged. Two bold . robbers bound, gagged and robbed a woman almost within a stone's throw of the Central police station on Sat urday night last, and the police are com pletely at sea as to their identity. Chief of Police Schaffer made strenuous efforts to keep the facts of the case from becoming generally known, but through the talk of the terror-stricken neighbors of the victim of the robbers the news became public property. Mrs. George Smith, who lives with her three small children at 673 Tenth street, was awaiting, at 10:30 o'clock, the return of her husband, who was downtown on the night mentioned, when she heard a knock at the door. Thinking that it might be some of the neighbors, Mrs. Smith opened the door to find herself con fronted by two burly men, whose faces were covered by masks. Before she could recover her pre...

BUTCHERS' CELEBRATION Their Annual Festival at Shell ..' ... Mound Park To • . ' Morrow. FOR PLEASURE AND BUSINESS. Reasons for the Yearly Meeting and : Origin of the Organi zation . To-morrow the annual celebration of the butchers will take place at . Shell Mound Park, Oakland, under the auspices of the Butchers' Board of Trade. This organiza tion was formed the Ist of April, 1833, and its stated objects are to oppose monop oly and maintain a healthy competition in both buying and selling meats. For many years there have been from twenty to thirty distinct firms engaged in buying and slaughtering, as well as raising stock, affording the retail butchers the choice of purchasing from that number of places. A few years ago capitalists came out from' the East and erected slaughtering and packing houses at Baden, near South fan Francisco. This movement meant to the" local butchers, they believed, the ab sorption of tne butcher business in this city. Acting upon the belief that when the ...

14 ASSUME THE AGGRESSIVE Claus Spreckels and His Wife Sue Rudolph for an Accounting. STUNG BY HIS INGRATITUDE. The Ingrate's Income Depended on His Father's In dulgence. Claus Spreckels Sr. and bis wife have at last turned upon their ungrateful off spring. Yesterday they brought suit against Rudolph Spreckels for a return and accounting of 5000 shares of Paauhau Plantation stock, valued at $500,000, and yielding a monthly income oi $5000. This is only the natural sequel of the litigation set on foot by Rudolph and his brother, C. A. Spreckels, in combination, to vex, annoy and harass their parents. For the past year and a half unwarranted and unnecessary suits have been brought against their aged father and mother, who endured them for a time and acted only on the defensive. Finally patience ceased to be a virtue, especially wnen the annoyance culminated last Friday evening in an outrageous attempt to impede the trip to Europe for the health and pleasure of their father and mother a...

SAN DIEGO AROUSED A Lynching Likely to Follow the Capture of a Fiend. ATTACKED A YOUNG GIRL Rancher Carver's Daughter Assailed While on Her Way to School. BLOODHOUNDS ON THE TRAIL. Posses Are Scouring the Country In Search for the Brutal Ruffian. SAN DIEGO, Cal., May 21.— Posses are scouring the country in search of a fiend -who yesterday morning made a brutal at tack on pretty Ruby Carver, the 15-year old daughter of H. B. Carver, a rancher, living near Buena. Bloodhounds have been sent for to aid in the * search, and there are angry mutterings of intended violence if the pursuit is successful. Miss Carver was on her way to school, and had reached a lonely place in the road, where a dark canyon branched out near the Hill ranch, when a man sprang out from behind a rock and grasped her. He wore a sack over his head, which com pletely hid his features. He first asked her to go into the canyon, and when she refused and cried for help he struck her and tried to drag her out of the road ...

4 ONLY MADE A BLUFF Japan Could Not Hold Out Long Against the Powers. SOME CLEVER DIPLOMACY For a Time the Ministers Suc ceeded in Deluding the People. THEN YIELDED GRACEFULLY. Army Officers at First Furious by the Withdrawal From Manchuria. TOKIO, Japan*, May 10 (via Victoria, B. C. May 21).— History has moved with extraordinary rapidity during the past two weeks. The newly established peace has been endangered, and complications of far greater magnitude than any produced by the contest between China and Japan have threatened to involve at least three Euro- i pean powers in a desperate struggle for supremacy in Eastern Asia. For several days the attitude of Japan indicated a resolution to set the enormous odds against her at defiance. Then, with a suddenness which most watchful observers are unable to explain, the spirit of resistance subsided and complete submission was promised to the harsh demands of the hostile league. In spite of the avowed willingness to yield to superior for...

8 HOME AND ART AT THE WOMAN`S CONGRESS. To about every fifty women at the Woman's Congress there is one man. He is usually very old or very young, gray haired or a boy. There are occasional ex ceptions; but whenever one sees the coat and vest and can tell it from the mannish woman's severe imitation — which isn't al ways easy — the wearer is almost sure to be at the end or at the beginning of life. It is interesting to watch the men at the congress. Their attitude is either wholly respectful or uneasily skeptical. A white haired man with flowing beard sits with his benignant old face turned toward the stage, a wrinkled hand curved behind his ear to catch the sound from the speaker's lips. A young man with dark down upon his upper lip shifts uneasily upon his feet — for the women are ungallant enough to permit men to stand — a half sneer upon his face, an air of embarrassment; but in his eye the longing to fight back, the de sire to exprc-s his contempt of the logic and the wisdom of...

dictum of the architect. "Do not construct decoration, but decorate construction." That's the thing that ought to be printed and posted up in every dressmaker's parlor in the world— "Do not construct decoration, but decorate construction " It ought also to be known and studied in our homes. I want to talk very earnestly to you about the decoration in the home. Mr. Wendte spoke here of the lack of it in Greek homes. It was not so much lack as you might think. They didn't have a mountain of glass and china, and silk and velvet, and all the shiny things and ribbon things and plush things that we have, but they had more beauty to the square inch than we have to the souare mik'. 'lhey knew what beauty was. Among the itrecks a table was frequently an object o% great beauty, richly carved and sometimes decorated with a statuette of one of the gods. Now, think of your tables at home. The great and governing principle of Greek art was its simplicity, its severity, its restraint. The moment a...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS. Judge Woods Commits a Very Forgetful Witness for Perjury. FAVORED A SALOON-KEEPER. Frank Robinson, the Car -Cleaner Who Cut His Throat, Is Dying Slowly. George Dority, a young colored man, got himself into trouble with Judge Wood of the Police Court yesterday, in consequence of his conduct in the case of Nicholas Dabanovich, a saloon-keeper, who . is charged with selling liquor after midnight. Dority was the complaining witness against the saloon man, the police having learned from him that he purchased liquor at Dabanovich's place, at Seventh . and Market streets, after 12 o'clock. When the case was called yesterday the negro seemed to have entire!}' lost his memory in con nection with the matter. He did not remember that he had told the officers where he purchased two bottles of beer which he was carrying when ar rested by them, and denied that he had stated that he had bought them of Dabano vich for twenty-five cents. Judge Wood speedily came to the con clusi...

14 ANOTHER OVERLAND LINE The Union Pacific Will Soon Reach the Bay of San Francisco. BE2AKLNG MONOPOLY'S BACK. By Combining With the Donahue Road It Secures a Terminus at Tiburon. Within a very few months another transcontinental railroad, the Union Pacific system, will have a terminal on the bay of San Francisco. This will break a railroad monopoly that has held this City in an iron grip ever since the first railroad reached this section of the Pacific Coast. After years of patient efforts and many disappointments the Union Pacific system has effected an arrangement by which it can reach San Francisco Bay. Tiburon will be its terminal, and an increased terry service between this City and that point will he one of the benefits to this part of the State. This magnificent stride in railroad achievement will be accomplished by a con- necting link, the Overland Pacific Rail way, uniting the Union with the San Francisco and North Pacific Railway, com monly called the Donahue broad-gauge ...
