EXTENDING A STREET [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
EXTENDING A STREET All Objections to the Howard Projection Overruled. Tie Supervisors Decline to Include Folsom Street and Appoint Commissioners. Some Judges Scored. - At the meeting of the Board of Supervisors last evening a resolution was presented by the Street Committee overruling the objections to the proposed extension of Howard street. Supervisor Boyd protested against the objection of the measure, on the ground that would do an injustice to propertyowners on Folsom street. They had appeared before the board and the Street Committee and had expressed their willingness to have the work done if the extension and improvement of their own street were included in the district. He moved that the whole matter be deferred for two weeks. lt was simply an act of justice to the protestants. Superviser Wiley? tne spokesman of the "Solid Nine," urged, as a reason why no delay should be entertained, that the Folsomstreet people had not ???ed any petition for an extension of their street.

A BRAVE WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
A BRAVE WOMAN. She Overcomes a Burglar and Hands Him Over to tbe Police. Bravery in a woman was shown at about 8 o'clock last night when Mrs. Foppiano, who lives over the livery stable at 416 Green street, crossed the street with a young lady friend to attend a marriage, leaving the house empty. No sooner had they left the house than two suspicious Individuals approached. One of them held watch outside, while the other entered the place and commenced to gather up all the portable articles, with an idea of removing them. He was interrupted in his work by the return of the lady of the house and he at once commenced an onslaught upon her. The burglarious individual met an unexpected foe in Mrs. Foppiano and after a short struggle she had him in the street and turned him over to Officer Cummings, who locked the fellow up for burglary. The ??? who was guarding the house, the station the Chinaman stated that he was advised by a blind man, who knows all about heaven, to kill himself, becau...
AKMSTBO.NG'S FATE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
ARMSTRONG'S FATE. He ls Still Missing and His Death Considered Certain. The detectives and friends of James Armstrong, who has been missing since last Saturday week, have now lost all hope of ever finding him alive and are clinging to a belief that his body may be discovered in a few days floating in the bay. All hope of his being found alive was abandoned early last week, but how he was spirited away and met his death they cannot imagine, for the farther the investigation was carried the more they were baffled. Many suspicions were aroused by clews, which upon a searching inquiry, proved to be false and led to nothing. As a last resort, notices of his disappearance and his description have been posted around the park and all over the city by his friends with a hope that some one may have seen him, or that his remains found and identified. How his relatives regard the affair may be judged by the following extracts from a letter written by his aunt Mrs. M?? Hawley of 2734 Bryant stre...

ALARMED DEMOCRATES. - The County Committee Severely Shocked by the "Sugar" Trust. - A meeting of the Democratic County Committee was held in the old City Hall last night. Max Popper presiding and - James H. Long acting as Secretary. The amendments lo the constitution submitted at the last meeting were taken up seriatim. The first amendment, "That precinct clubs should not be increased as the precincts were increased," was adopted after A. T. Spotts had explained that the change was necessitated by recent legislation having increased the number of precincts from 176 to 310. The amendment fixing 9 o'clock as the final hour for enrollment has generally discussed, representatives from outlying districts claiming the impossibility of every one enrolling before that hour. James Hanley made an anneal for a change of the time to 10 o'clock. A. T. Spotts allayed the distress by peaceful, explanatory words, and a division counted 26 ayes and 6 noes. The amendments were then adopted as a whole...
JPIKD OH THI. DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
DIED ON THE DOCK. Sad Ending of a Ship's Mate, Who Was Taken From the Bay. A seaman rushed into the City Receiving Hospital yesterday afternoon and excitedly told Police Surgeon Yeamans that a man had been taken from the bay and was lying on Main-street Wharf still breathing. He was told by the doctor to go back and bring the dying man in a wagon to tbe hospital. Shortly afterward a message was received at the Morgue stating that he was dead, and his body was subsequently removed to that place. The deceased was Wallace Stinson, third mate of the American ship E. B. Sutton, a native of Maine, and 26 years of age. While painting his ship off Main-street Wharf from a swinging stage he fell into the water and was drowned. No one saw him fall, only a cry and a splash were heard and he was out of sight beneath the water. He did not come to the surface, so the sailors and others dragged him from the bottom with grappling irons. When he was taken to the wharf he was still breathing, but thr...

A suflplciuDH Fire. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
A Suspicious Fire. An alarm was turned in early yesterday morning from Box 53 for a fire in a onestory saloon occupied by Theodore Sievert at the corner of Berry and Haggin streets. In a short time the shanty and its contents were a heap of ashes, and about $500 worth of damage had been done by the flames. The building was purchased several days ago by Whittier &amp; Co., the contractors, who intended tearing it down. Sievert had a policy of $1000 on the contents, but Fire Marshal Towe thinks they could not have been worth above $50 to $75 at the most. Sievert intended moving to-day and had taken out some things. The Fire Marshal thinks that the blaze was started by an Incendiary, and consequently he will thoroughly investigate its origin. Sievert says he was at a ball with his wife when the fire occurred, and he allowed a sailor whose name he does not know to sleep in the saloon.

REAL ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
REAL ESTATE. More Activity in March Than There Was in February. Interest Reduced to 6 per Cent— A Report Relative to the Johnson Heirs— The Representative Sales. From advance proof-sheets of The Real Estate Circular, published by Thomas Magee, the following extracts are made: The most important event of the month in real estate, and it is quite important just now, is that the Hibernia Bank has reduced the rate of interest to 6 cent, it, of course, paying the mortgage tax. The bank advanced the rate from 6 to 7 per cent six weeks ago, but the demand for money at that rate was so slow as not to justify the maintenance of money at that rate. The difference between 6 and 7 per cent is the difference just now between activity and dullness in real estate and also in building. Real estate did better in March than in February, and there are now signs that, when the weather settles, it will again become active. The total number of sales recorded in February was 354, of the value of $2,079,68...

HOBSEMKK'S GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
HORSEMEN'S GOSSIP. The Reports Made of the Time at Fresno Were Correct. Horsemen who have returned from the Fresno spring meeting state that the reports of the time made down there last week on the various events were given correctly. When Pliny, three-year-old, made the time of 2:08 3/4 in the one and a quarter mile race, he carried 103 pounds, and he won very neatly. The Fresno track is reported as having been in the best of order and faster than a bullet. The attendance was light, and the betting, though spirited, not heavy. Most of the stables that took part in the meeting have now gone on to San Jose. That Flambeau is going East and will have a chance to show his full powers is very satisfactory to local horsemen, who, while of course satisfied to have such a dangerous rival out of the way, think that he will prove to be a most reliable champion to uphold the California prestige, especially over a distance with weight up.

A HOME AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 1 April 1890
A HOME AT LAST. Happiness in Store for Little Willie Smith. A Brighter Side for the Child After His Hard Straggle With Adversity-Many Generous Ladies. Willie Smith— a pale, intelligent little fellow— was taken to the City and County Hospital five days ago suffering with hemorrhage of the nostrils and in a dangerous condition. Now he is not only in a fair way to recover, but will be better off in the world than his imagination had ever pictured. He is not only the pet of the hospital, but many of those who have read the report of his manly struggles and his present distress have visited him and sent him gifts. The story of his life as told by himself, while a rather sad one, shows some brighter sides. His energy, ambition and sound mind enabled him to cope successfully with what would have caused many men to give up. He says: "I am 14 years old, and was born in San Francisco. When I was but 3 months old my father died, and the first I remember of my mother she was cooking and support...
