HE IS GONE FOR GOOD Clay M. Greene, the Dramatist, Has Become a Long Islander. HIS HOME IN THE FAR EAST. An Old Colonial Mansion on the Sunny Shores of the Sound. . When a Californian becomes famous in literature or art he packs his grip, sells out liis effects, bids farewell to the golden shore and makes his home in the East. Thus he conforms to the general belief that while the Pacific Coast is admirably adapted fof the birth of genius, and is in this respect a go*»d mother, it is a bad mirse, and genius has to go elsewhere for encouragement and sustenance. Bret Harte departed long ago and has never returned, Julian Rix will never lay brush to canvas again in California, Joa quin Miller waltzed around Boston and England before he decided to make a perma nent settlement here, and now Clay M. Greene, the representative California dra matist, will call Long Island his home for the rest of his natural life. • Clay Greene has been a success from the beginning. His plays have been well ...

Monthly Reports Which Showed No Progress— Attorney Ford's Opin ion Deferred. A. Pace Brown was red yesterday. He blushed deeply when called on to explain his method of performing Lis official duties. The architect of the ferry foundation and union depot arrived at the conclusion that there was some sort of investigation going on down at '.the Harbor Commissioners with which his name had been prominently connected, and thought that it was time for him to go down and see about it. Ac cordingly he called upon President Col non and the two gentlemen were closeted for about an hour. Mr. Brown define bis position as he understood it, but if his ex planation was satisfactory to himself it was far from satisfactory to the president.

April 25.— Ever since the ' refusal of the City Trustees to allow the lire department to play upon the fire at the Bid we!! mansion, situated outside of the city limits last Saturday, there has been a general howl going up from the firemen, who claim it was a disgrace to the city, but now the Trustees have announced .' their intention of passing an ordinance re quiring the Chief Engineer to give a bond of $3000, prohibiting the apparatus from ' going outside city limits, and imposing a fine on the Chief of from $100 to $500 for violation of the ordinance. This is con sidered too much, and many firemen have announced their intention of resigning if the ordinance is passed. It is also believed ...

As the long train of twenty-one passenger coaches wound slowly along the river front and through the city's out skirts, the occupants were greeted by a genuine ovation by all the residents along the track.

4 ALL IN A FIRETRAP. Nine Hundred Employes Caught in a Blazing Factory. THERE ARE NO ESCAPES. Girls Made Frantic by the Flames Jump From a Window. MANGLED ON A ROOF BELOW. Criminal Carelessness the Cause of Many Being Injured— Fatally. MONTREAL, Quebec, April 25.— C. McDonald's extensive tobacco factory on Ontario street was partly destroyed by fire this evening. The loss will reach half a million dollars, on which there is no insur ance. There was not a fire escape on the out- Bide nor any appliances on the inside of the building for the fighting of the fire. Even the windows were guarded by heavy iron screens, presumably to prevent theft. The fire started at . o'clock in the drying room and for a while smoldered. Then suddenly the flames burst through and a most awful panic ensued. There were 900 employes in the building and more than half this number were women and girls.- The shrieks of the women as they beat against the iron screens, praying the crowd todo something to save the...

STILL AFTER GIBSON Durrant's Attorneys In dicate Their Line of Defense. A DOUBT TO BE CREATED. ■The Pastor Questioned as to Samples of His Hand writing. HIS RELATIONS WITH DURRANT. A New Witness Is Brought Forward. Prosecution to Close To-Day. It was another day of black slouch hats, dan. coats and darker hints in the Durrant hearing yesterday. Dr. Gibson was recalled to the witness stand and his testimony opened the morn ing session of the court. He had evidently forgotten Judge Conlan's sarcastic lash, under which he writhed the day before, and the finely cut innuendo of Deuprey and Dickinson had seemingly been erased from the tablet of his rather erratic memory. As he stepped on the witness-stand his manner betrayed considerable nervousness, and when put on the rack of cross-ex amination further indications of a per turbed condition of mind were not want ing. His answers came snappishly — some cases savagely, and as Dickinson's suggestive questions forged link by link into a long...

Fire destroyed the handsome two-story boathi of the University Boating Asso ciation, situated on Sessions basin, together with several valuable boats, at an early hour yesterday morning. When an alarm was sounded from East Oakland the fire engines at once dashed to the scene, but owing to the situation of the house, which can only be reached by a long narrow footbridge across the mud fiats, were unable to render any assistance, and were compelled to stand- at Clinton station while the structure burned to the ground. The building was of wood, and in less than two hours was a mass of smol dering ruins. .The loss will be large, as in addition to the house a number of costly canoes, a small yacht in course of construction and two racing barges were destroyed.

12 SANTA FE WILL FIGHT The Southern Pacific Brought About the Trouble at First. OVER AN EXCURSION TICKET. Decks Cleared Here for the Fray and a Flyer to Be Started. The Santa Fe Railway officials have started out upon the warpath, and this time the object of their aggressive cam paign is the Southern Pacific Company's overland passenger business. It was a little thing that aroused the Santa Fe men's ire, and though of appa rently trifling moment, in the eyes of rail road men it was a breach of courtesy ex- tended by one company to another, and as such is sufficient grounds for retaliation. When the Half-million Club excursion was about to leave San Francisco for Los Angeles, Mr. Perkins of the Santa Fe pas senger department here, acting under in structions from the general passenger agent of his company, went to the South ern Pacific offices and asked for a pass on tne excursion train. His purpose was to induce members of the party to travel over the Southern California Railway as f...

The Five Days' Session Will Wind Up With a Magnificent Banquet. Complaint is being made by quite a number of the Native Son delegates that Oakland's hospitality has been almost too generous, and that it has been extended in such varied and attractive forms that it proved simply irresistible, with the result that the business of the Grand Parlor has suffered. "With this knowledge in mind all the members apparently determined to buckle down to work yesterday, and they got through with considerable business, in ad dition to electing the following officers: F.
