There was quite a little scene in the rooms of the Inspectors of Hulls and Boilers yesterday before the Colima in quiry was taken up. Inspector of Boilers Phillips was angry and he showed it. After the first witness had been sworn be arose and said: "Before this inquiry begins I would like to say a few words in relation to some of these gentlemen here who report for the public press. "I see by the Chronicle that that paper assails me and insinuates that I am not disposed to get at the bottom facts of this case, or rather that lam disposed to work in the interests of the Pacific Mail.

Ph?ehan, James Alva Watt, Rolla V. Watt, Judge Hebbard, ex-At torney-General Hart, the Bank Commis sioners, and the majority of the board of directors of the People's Home Savings , Bank, were denounced at the meeting of i the People's Bank depositors last night. For the three hours it lasted it was one ] continual scoring of these gentlemen, and i evidently the depositors felt better after they had expressed themselves. It capped the climax by adopting some resolutions | of a satirical nature, denouncing the Bank j Commissioners and Mr. Sheehan in par ticular, and insinuating that certain per sons ought to be in Fan Quentin. In beautiful contrast to all this the sec retary of the depositors' committee, T. S. j Williams Jr., who is also a director of the) bank, was warmly praised as the true i friend of t...

14 THE FIRE INSURANCE WAR The Dissolved Compact Was Not an Unmixed Evil After All. COMPARISON OF LOSS RATIOS- What Property-Owners May Expect. The Good Work That Is Done by the Patrol. The fire insurance managers of this coast having crippled the California goose that laid the golden eggs are in a quandary. They built up and maintained for eleven years at a large cost the largest and strong est compact association in the world, and then, through the bad faith of some of their members, tore it to pieces. The in terests involved are so large that property owners may well question seriously the course of the companies and carefully re view their past action as some index of the future. In 1884 what is known as the "compact" system was inaugurated on the Pacific Coast, its field of operations being the States of Oregon and Washington. The insurance managers thought it best "to try it on"' at first in an inferior territory, so far as volume of business was con cerned, reasoning that if t...

Why Indictments Will Not Hold Against Publishers of Lottery Ads.

4 LAZZARONE'S BIG WIN Defeats the Crackajacks in the Suburban Handicap. PILOTED BY HAMILTON. Seldom Has a Prettier Race Been Seen at Sheepshead Bay Track. DOMINO BADLY TURNED DOWN. Among Only Six Runners He Is Unable to Make Even a " Show." NEW YORK, N. V., June 15.— Better than to-day's weather could not have been desired for the running of the Suburban, as the air was as clear as could be, and although the sun was hot, a cooling breeze swept across the grand stand and down the stretch at Sheepshead Bay. In spite of the fact that the Suburban was supposed to be at the mercy of Domino, and the starters only numbered six. there was as much interest as ever in the race. When the time came for the running of the big race a typical Suburban crowd was present and the lawn was as well packed as the grand stand. At 4:05 the horses can tered up past the grand stand to the start ing post, but unlike former years, there was very little enthusiasm. A few applauded Domino and Taral and when Sir...

THE BAY DISTRICT RACES Scenting a Job, Judges Declare Bets Off on the Steeple chase. ONLY TWO FAVORITES WON. The Mile and a Quarter Handicap Taken by the Outsider Del Norte. Johnny Epperson, who rode Mero, was tem porarily suspended. Pigeon's ride on Del Norte was a very pret tily timed piece of horsemanship. With 110 pounds up imp. Santa Bella ran as if it would take a good one to lower her colors, and her owner, Mr. Macdonough, was of that opinion yesterday. Mat Storn, owner of Del Norte, was warmly congratulated by his friends on the victory of his brown horse. Mat's horses have met with poor success for some time and the win was a popular one. One of the most disgruntled-looking men on the track when bets were declared off on the steeplechase was Jim Neal. Jim had a good bet down on Hector, the first one he had won in two weeks, and then to have bets declared off. For h moment the owner of Perhnps was disgusted with the turf and a spectator might have purchased a siring of thoro...
