THE NASHVILLE AMERICAN, SATURDAY, MAT 19, 1906. ALL VALUABLES SAFEA8DS0DND Big Deposit Vaults at San Francisco Opened, CITY'S COMMERCIAL BANKS Will Resume Business on Wednesday. Supply of Water Now Believed AdequateInsurance Companies Seeking to Avoid Payment Will Be Marked. . SAN FRANCISCO, May 18. More than 1,000 persons, each wearing an anxious and worried look, and impatient to examine papers and valuables deposited in the vaults of the California Safe Deposit & Trust Co., stood in line yesterday awaiting the opening of the vaults when the brick and debris had been cleared away. The contents ot the boxes, were found Intact and most of the depositors left their valuables in the compartments. The Anglo-California Iank also opened its vaults and found books, papers, currency and coin in perfect condition. At a meeting of the Clearing House Commission yesterday it was decided that the commercial banks of this city . will open for regular business next Wednesday. It is believed that the extended delay has insured the banks from any panic, that the confidence of depositor has been restored and that the banks have had ample time to prepare for any run on theiru Health officer D. M. Ragan reported to the Board of Health yesterday that San Francisco is no longer in danger of a water famine and that within a few days the entire water supply will be in a normal condition. BIG- PIPE REPAIRED. According to Dr. Ragan's report, the big 44-inch Crystal Springs pipe, which was broken for 3,000 feet, has been repaired, and there is (lowing into San Francisco now about 26,000,000 gallons a day, which he considers amply sufficient, providing there is no waste. That the insurance companies which manifest an intention of resisting claims and evading payment of losses sustained by polycyholders in the great fire hhere by resorting to legal technicalities will be marked companies and may meet with drastic action in some States is indicated by the tenor of replies received by Insurance Commissioner E. Myron Wolf in response to his appeal to the insurance departments of other- States to assist him in compelling the insurance companies to deal fairly with their policyholders in the present crisis. Commissioner Wolf yesterday received the official communication from Samuel P. Davis. State ComptrolleV of Nevada: "I understand that some of the Eastern and foreign companies arc proposing to crawl behind technical i ties in the matter of adjusting losses in San Francisco; that where houses were dynamited to stay the progress of the flames houses which In . the natural course of events would have been swept away by the fire a few minutes later they will, refuse to pay the insurance. REALLiY A SAVING. "Now it appears to me that the act of destroying these buildings -was. alone what saved the rest of the city from total destruction and no doubt protected these companies from further loss. If this saving of additional losses to these companies is to be made a pretext on their part to evade their just obligations in setiement of their San Francisco liabilities, It is prima facie evidence to me that the companies resorting to these technicalities are dishonest, and on a proper showing o these facts I will revoke their licenses in Nevada." The Masons' and Builders' Association has raised the wages of bricklayers and bracklayers' helpers. Commencing May 21, bricklayers will receive $7 per day of eight hours and helpers $4 h day. Tlii Is un advance of $1 a day for bricklayers and 50 cents for helpers. In a statement that has been issued the Builders' Association declares the supply of this kind of skilled labor is inadequate to the demand, and that ft has been found necessary to take thiK action as an inducement to journeymen to come and help in the rebuilding of the city. F. L. Hadley, Sec-rotary of the Journeymen Bricklayers' Union, is of the opinion that there are enough bricklayers here to supply the demand existing, but many of them are temporarily engaged in repairing chimneys.

DEATH BY BULLET Louis Payne, a Car Repairer, a Suicide at Tullahoma. " TULLAHOMA, Tenn., May IS. (Special.) "Let me take one more drink and I promise you that I will never take another." Such were the last words spoken to his wife by Louis Payne, when to-day he requested the privilege of taking one more drink before swearing off, as his poor wife understood him to mean from the words used; Payne took the drink and walked through the house to' the backyard. His wife felt relieved, for she knew her husband to be a man of his word, and thought that the little spoil of drinking in which he had been indulging for a few days would soon be in the past. Suddenly the sharp report of a pistol disturbed the quietude of the home. Rushing out Mrs. Payne discovered the unconscious body of her husband lying in a pool of blood. Upon leaving the house Payne had gone into a chicken-house on the place, and took his hat off and laid it carefully away, then drawing a pistol from his pocket, placed- the muzzle behind mis right ear and pulled the trigger. The unfortunate man died within a few minutes after firing the fatal shot. There was no cause for the act, as far as known, other than whisky, it being said that his domestic relations were happy. Louis Payne was employed as car repairer by the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway, and has been living here four or five months, having purchased a home, since accepting his job. He was born and raised in the Crow Creek neighborhood, and was considered a valuable and reliable employe. It is stated that this is the first spell of drinking that be had been on since coming to Tullahoma. He was 35 years Of age. HAYNESJNDICTED Charged With Killing Hewlett and' Shu-gart at Birmingham. BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 18. (Special.) The grand jury has returned an indictment charging Harry Haynes with murder in the first degree for the alleged killing of Thomas Hewlett, and John T. Shugart in the Peerless saloon, some two weeks ago. As a result of the indictment the preliminary hearing is in a peculiar complication. Attorneys for the defense Insisted vigorously, both several days ago and yesterday, that the hearing proceed. Solicitor Hefiin, two days ago, withdrew from the prosecution. Yesterday, upon orders from him. Sheriff Burgin refused to allow the prisoner (who had been indicted in the meanwhile), to be taken from the county jail. After more than an hour of argument, Judge H. B. Abernathy, of the Inferior Criminal Court, temporarily postponed, the case, while he investigated the law to see whether or not ho has jurisdiction to punish the Sheriff for contempt for refusal to produce the prisoner. That is the statu quo in which the affair stands at present. " Following a crusade begun against it by the police, stringent protests by Mayor Ward, an ordinance introduced into the City Council in an attempt to take away its charter, and much discussion on the part of the people, the county grand jury is said to he investigating the Alabama Club, the house where gambling is alleged to have been carried on, and because of the feud between the operators of which and some of the smaller fry of gamblers, the fatal shooting affray of two weeks since took place in the Peerless saloon. The Secretary of the club appeared before the grand jury yesterday. It is claimed that a number of prominent men were actual members, while cards of honorary membership had been sent to various judges, county officials, and even well known ministers. The matter is a live local issue at present, t MAIL TO ALASKA. WASHINGTON, May IS.

Cox spoke last night in the courthouse to a fair sized audience, being introduced by his former conferee In th--Legislature. Hon. John W. Fry. The iirst part of bis speech was devoted to a discussion of State affairs, in which he claimed that he was making the race on his business record, was well received. In this portion of it he claimed he, or the administration, had put the penitentiary. t!.o coal mines, and other institutions in line shape, and that these places of State industry were in a healthy condition and growing more so day by day. When lift took up the cudgel of criticism. however, in which he defended his record as Revenue Agent by assailing the public record 'of his opponent when Attorney General, interest lagged, and many left the hall, not with any Intended .discourtesy to the speaker, but becnuse Columbia people who are intelligent do not sr. net ion nor indorse such campaigning. Nor do they indorse the "you are another" methods, for the high office, of Governor, believing that a campaign of crimination and recrimination is injurious both to the party and the State. This refer-once is not made in defense of one candidate against another, -as each has freely attacked the official record of the other. To-morrow it will be decided what position Maury will occupy at the State Convention. The Cox men are Insisting upon an unlnstructed delegation. Patterson men say this is an effort to displace the West Tenneysean in the intemst of Cox; the opposition make denial of the charge, insisting that the county delegation should go to the convention free to vote for party harmony and the best interests of the State. Both factions have strong workers in the outer districts as well as in town, while there are others who seein to give the contest little concern. Either Patterson or Carmack. BIG SANDY. Tenn., May 18.-(Spccial.)-Democrats in this end of Kenton County are very much Interested in the suggestion that Senator Carmack may he the "dark hot's?" in thp gubernatorial race. They indorse the course of The American in its assertion that the nomination should be given to one of the two candidates that have fought all over the State for t-hc honor, and they also indorse the stand taken by Senator Carmack in stating positively to the people of the State that under no circumstances should his Hnw I WW W If N ' i liPMl I'M!

Cox spoke here In the afternoon. Gov. Cox at Spring Hill-SPRING HILL, Term., May 18. (Special.) Gov, John I. Cox gave a political talk here this afternoon to about seventy-five people.

Warm Weather Causes Expansion in Retail Trade, While Money is Plentiful and Easier Failures Fewer. NEW YORK, May 18. Bradstreet's to-morrow will say: Retail trade has expanded with warmer weather and the settlement of labor troubles; jobbing reorder business is in full seasonable volume, San Francisco demand being it feature; fall orders are equal to and in many lines in excess of last year ac this period; industry, except in some sections of the soft coal field, is as active as ever before, and the return tide of currency from the country( is evidenced by increasing western bank deposits and perceptibly easier money. Lack of moisture in portions of the winter wheat belt is responsible for the first irregularity of the season in crop reports, but spring wheat and corn are doing well, while oats are thin, needing rain; damuge to cotton from frost has been slight, vegetables being chiefly affected. Railway earnings show good gains. Building activity makes for a large sale of lumber, hardware, paints, glass and other material .and the iron and steel industry, while showing some irregularity in foundry pig prices due probably to the moulders striKe draws great confidence from the large volume of orders booked for steel "rails for next year's delivery. Cereals and cotton, while showing strength on crop deterioration reports find Just as much support In the fact that supplies are far ' from un-' wolldy. Collections tend to Improve. Fine cotton goods are in active demand and firm, but somefew coarse goods are reported easier. Fall ' orders are reported in excess of a year ago and there are no burdensome stocks to speak of. Wool is quiet at the east, but more active in western points. Woolen dress goods are in active request.

Plans for Accommodation of Many More People Funds Needed to Carry Out Purpose of Camp. With enlarged capacity, the fresh all? camp of the United Charities at Crag- gle Hope will be opened about June 1, and the indications are that the camp will be a greater success than ever before, it being expected that many more of the city's poor can be given enter tainment and recreation there thanj heretofore. The camp is situated oni mile from Craggie Hope, near Blowini Spring. Since the camp onened. it ha: been supported entirely by voluntnrB donations. The property upon which li is situated Is now owned by the UnltcM Charities, and if the plans formed en be realized It will be an Institution pro. lifle of as much good as any like organl Ization In the country. It is planned! to build three frame cottages there to' afford accommodation for double the number accommodated during former seasons. Heretofore, the people hav been entertained in, tents. Last year, there were nine tents, In which fifteen grown people and forty-five children lived through four months. The plans for the present year depend largely unon the donations made but It is confidently expected that a large increase in tne number accommo. dated last year can be entertained din ing the coming season. The purpose of tills camp is to afford to tho women' who have to work through the year fo: the support of their families and tho children who live, in tenement houses with -insufficient fresh air a few months of healthy out-door recreation and pleasure. A garden is cultivated at the fresh air camp, maintained large ly by the boys there. There are scv era! forms of amusement, afforded by nature, which at the previous seasons of the camp have been a source of great pleasure to the people there. H is hoped that the funds received will bo sufficient to keep the camp open un til tho fall and to accommodate a largo number of peonle. Were thero sufficient funds, th1 could be mode a mag nificent charity. NASHVILLE DRUMMER Held at Birmingham in Connection With a Man's Death. BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 18. (Spft- clal.) Wm. G.
