WHY AN OAKLAND WIRE WAS HOT. Does Berkeley's Charter Drive . Her Two Justices Out * of Office? THOMAS' TANGLED FINANCES. - • Fifty Thousand Gallons of Coal Oil Stored in a Single Shed. There is just a possibility that Berkeley will be left without justices of the peace because of the adoption of her new charter recently. Yesterday the gentlemen who have been" acting as justices there since last election were under considerable excitement when they discovered that the new charter prob ably chopped off their official heads. They were in consultation with leading Oakland lawyers over the matter, and kept the wire between Oakland and Sacramento hot with messages to various legislators. The trouble conies in this way: Justices Shaw and Lord were acting as justices of the peace in Berkeley, having been elected in November last, but a week ago the town voted on and adopted a new charter. This charter made the proper provision in one section for two justices of the peace, and everybody supp...

One Robber Captured and the Other Killed After a Running Battle With Pursuers. Apel, lowa, March 6. — A desperate and partly successful attempt was made to rob the Adel State Bank this morning. A few minutes before 9 o'clock two strangers drove into town and tied their team near the public square. Without attracting any particular attention they stepped into the hank. The cashier, M. Leach, had just taken from the vault currency for the day's business. C. D. Bailey, a leading mer chant, was writing at a .desk in the lobby. They were the only occupants of the bank. One of the strangers stepped up to the cashier's window and said he wanted to deposit some money. Almost immediately the second robber, who was behind, lev eied a shotgun at Leach and fired, the chanre taking effect in his shoulder. He then ordered ...

Howard (retired) ar rived in the city yesterday and is staying at the Colonial. He is in the city for the purpose of delivering a series of lectures on the Civil War, in which he bore so honora ble a part, and was the recipient of number of calls last evening from old comrades-at arms. In a somewhat desultory manner the general last night touched lightly upon matters pertaining to the army, its present requirements and its standing as compared with the forces of other countries. He said that his idea had always been to place the army upon a modern basis, and that GENERAL O. O. HOWARD. [From a photograph.] very good bills had been introduced in Congress for that purpose, but as yet faile< to receive favorable recognition from both hotises. The navy, he thought, had been more fortunate in th...

FASTEST LAUNCH ON THE WATER The Crack Steam Craft Which Is Being Built for Dr. Buckley. SWIFT LITTLE SATELLITE. The Boat Will Make Eleven Knots an Hour— The Trial Trip. The steamer Farallon, which arrived a few days ago from Puget Sound ports, brought from Seattle the hull and frame of a launch for Dr. V. P. Buckley, the well known physician of this city. A few days ago the little craft was taken to the Union Qas-engine Company, where an engine is now being made for her. The Satellite is the name of the new launch, and before the season is over it is predicted that she will have passed everything in the bay. The vessel itself is a thing of beauty, but it is her lines which catch the yachtsman's eye. The graceful sweep of the white cedar hull, the sharp bow and overhanging stern give indications of what she can do, and, if the gas engine meets the require ments, the Satellite will be the fastest boat of her class on the bay. The designer of the novel craft, for she will be a novelty ...

8 CRESCENDO IS A REAL WARM ONE. He Ran Away From His Field and Made Them look Like " Dogs." A CRACKERJACK YOUNGSTER. Major McLaughlin Won the Mile and a Sixteenth Handicap. "Ain't he a dandy!" This and other similar expressions were all that were beard after the two-year-old race at the trark yesterday, won by Naglee Burkes tine-looking chestnut son of Flambeau and imp. Janet N. And he was a dandy, a real erackerjaek, the best two-year-old that has been cut loose in many a day, and if he is not heard from the other side of the mountains this summer it is because he has passed to the equine land of rest. He had been showing phenomenally fast workouts down at the Garden City track and two or three carloads of San Joseans came up to get a little San Francisco money. There were thirteen starters in the race, a half-mile spin, and when an unsuspect ing bookie came to Crescendo and chalked 20 to 1 against him he must have thought he had offended some one and was going to be mobbed by the ...

VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 88. THE PACIFIC SLOPE Attempted Swindling of a Land -Buyer at San Diego. JORGERY OF A DEED. Revelation of a Cunning Plot Just as the Deal Was to Be Closed. TRAGEDY AT SAJf BERNARDINO. A Horse-Trainer Wounds a Woman and Then Sends a Bullet Through His Head. San Piego, March 7. — One of the best laid traps yet discovered in this city to swindle a purchaser of real estate, and in volving a forged deed and perjury, was accidentally discovered yesterday by J. M. Clark, who was about to pay over $2250 for a worthless piece of paper. So cunningly had the scheme been worked that no sus picions whatever had been raised until the last moment, when Clark, by asking a question, laid the whole thing bare. Some weeks ago Clark was offered three lots on Florence Heights for $2300. He accepted the offer and put up a $.50 deposit. Yesterday at 1 o'clock he was to pay over the balance and get a grant deed. It ap peared that the owner, B. Etcheverry, had made a deed in Sail Francisc...

2 year I published an open letter to Chief Crowley. warning him of the danger that surrounded him as head of the department, for I at once saw the drift of the time, he fell into a violent rage, and has not recov ered from it since. "After fourteen years the Police Commis sion, non-partisan in character, and cre ated through Democratic influence, had its independence destroyed through the death Major Hammond, a Democrat, and the ap pointment of D. M. Burns, a boss Republi can, to succeed him. Thus the non-parti san character of the board was destroyed and the result is that it is now a party ma thine. "It rested with Chief Crowley to say whether the department should be turned back into the political machine of seven teen years ago. The drift of his mind is suggested in his appeal to keep tne com mission and the department strictly parti san.

Pollock and Hyde, who appealed their cases against the Farmers' and Conti nental Trust companies of New York from the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the southern district of New York. Mr. Guthrie devoted himself to an outline of the argument proposed to be made by the counsel fortiie appellants and had not concluded when the court at 4 o'clock adjourned for the day.
