General Barnes Has Been Retained as Attorney by the Missing Man's Brother A Legal Fight , Anticipated. Eugene A. Bresse, the former partner of L. W. McGlauflin, who constituted the brokerage firm that handled the famous Fair wheat deal so disastrously to the heirs of the late Senator, is still among the missing. It is now three weeks sinoe Bresse dis appeared, and no trace of him oanbe found so far as known. It is generally supposed, however, that Bresse is not so far away that he cannot be found when wanted, and the popular impression that he is fleeing from the wrath of McGlauftia is scoffed at by thoso who are familiar with Bresse and his affairs. McGlauflia has, during this time, conducted a private and quiet investigation, aided by private detectives, and it is hinted that he has succeeded in locating his much sought for partner. Whether this is true or not cannot be verified, as all parties conoerned are extremely roti-oent and equally cautious. It is evident, however, that the two part ners are on the eve of legal proceedings, as General W. H. L. Barnes has been retained as attorney for the missing man by his brother. General Barnes was seen last evening and stated that it was quite true that he bad been retained as an attorney by young Bresse. General Barnes said: "Eugene's brother came into my office to-day and asked me if I was affiliated with Mo-Glauflln's attorneys. I informed him that I was not His brother asked me it I could represent u?ene in the event of a suit, and I told him I could. "I can see no reason why Eugene Bresse should secrete himself. He has no reason to fear anything so far as I can see from the general idea I have gathered of the caae aa it atanda. As for knowing where he is I am absolutely in Ignorance, and know nothing more of Bresse's affairs than I have already stated." . Tht rumor that Bresse is In hiding in this city is denied generally, for were this the case some of his friends would know of his whereabouts. A SPARK FROM A PIPE. Gasoline and a Leaky Tank Caused the Wreck of an Engine. The Ship Dunstaffnage Carries Away a Big Cargo of the Fair Wheat Start of the Yachts for Santa Cruz. Atonsr the Wiater Front, July 1. A gasoline engine used by the construction gang in laying the tracks of the Folsom-s treat electrio car line exploded on East street this morning and wreck id the engine and truck on which it was running. The wood work of the true caught fire from the explosion, but the fire crew of the State tugs extinguish. I It before much damage had been done. The cause of ths explosion Is said to bit du9 to the leaky condition of the tank containing the gaso line and a spark from aome smoker's pipe lighting on the escaping fluid. The British ship Duns affnage. cleared a the Customs House to-day for Liverpoo' with a full cargo of wheat that at one time was owned by the late James Q. Fair. The vessel is one of the largest merchantmen afloat and she baa in her hold 111,014 centals of wheat which makes the largest cargo of grain that has been taken out of this port during tne last four years.

Governor Budd Says the Decision of the Board of Location Is Final. Companies of the National Guard That Sympathized With the Strikers Must Go. THE SECOND BRIGADE WILL BE CUT. San Francisco to Lose Four More Companies Barrett Says the State Should Own Armories and Camps. Governor Budd says the action of tha Board of Looatlon in mustering out companies of the National Guard is final. Slnoe t'ue board found it for the interests of the Stata to muster oat the First Troop of Cavalry Captain Waller, who was in command of it, has concentrated all his energies in bringing political pressure to bear both upon Governor Budd and Adjutant-General Barrett to have the Board of Location rescind its action so far as the troop was conoerned. Many telegraphic messages have been sent to Saoramento asking Governor Budd to retain the troop, but the Commander-in-Chief could not sea it and sent the following message to Cap-lain Waller yesterday : 8 acramento, July 1, 1895. Captain Waller, San Francisco: The action of the Board of Looatlon Is flnaL BUDD. This virtually completes the transaction on the part of tha State, but Captain Wal ler looks at it differently and has mailed to the Governor a protest, in which he assures the Commander-in-Chief that the troop has been misrepresented and that the board has been deceived. The Captain virtually demands an inspection of his troopers In their own vindication, and if the troop is not found as it should be ha is willing that the decision should stand. The mustering out of Company H of tb. First la fan try was not due to any report against them, but because they were the last alphabetical company in the regiment which the board had decided to reduce. WAITING FOR REORGANIZATION. The cause of the mustering out of the companies at Areata and Vallejo was due to economy. The members of the National Guard are waiting in anxiety for the reorganization which will be forthcoming the last of this week, when the Board of Reorganization meets. It Is tacitly understood that the board has already come to a conclusion as to what it shall do. That there are to be more companies mustered out is frankly admitted, and those companies will be taken from the Eighth Infantry, tho board acting uon the recommendation of Colonel Hanshaw. It will be remembered that during the strike of last year Colonel Henshaw had considerable trouble, with two of his com panies. Their acts in sympathy with the strikers were such that his confidence In them was shaken, and be so reported. In making his annual report to the Commander-in-Chief his recommendations re garding these companies were such that the board at its next session will muster them out of the service. It is no longer a secret as to what the Board of Reorganization intends to do at its nsxt session. It has been given out that they propose a sweoping consolida tion, and the Second Brigade is the one which will be most affected. As agreed upon now the consolidation will ba made as follows: Stockton one company, Los Angelas one oompany, San Diego one company, San Francisco five companies. Ihis with the two companies of the Eighth Infantry that are to be mustered out will reduce the National Guard fifteen companies, about fifty officers and SOO enlisted men. rOCR TROOPS OF CAVALRY. There will, however, be four troops of cavalry mustered in, which will main tain the original strength of the guard and make the net re duction in tho number of officers thirty. In making tha consolidation In San Fran cisco, the Sscond Artillery stands a fair chance of being reduced to a ba'alllon, leaving it in command of a Lieutenant- Colonel. This will bo dona for more reasons than one. The consolidation can be accomplished here batter than anyplace In tho State, and now that the Third is reduced to a batallioa they propose to put the next reetment on the same footing. Adjutant-General Barrett bafcre leaving for Sacramento said: " I am in favor of increasing companies to 103 men. We could thereby have more men, fewer officers and a great reduction In e xpenses. I am also in favor of the S ate owning its own armories, for in this city alone the National guard is paying $3,000 per annum in rents. They could ba so built that mob violence could be resisted aud ammunition could bo properly protected. ' "In Interior towns this could not be done so readily as in largor cities. We should also have camping grounds for the troops, to be owned by the State. These grounds should bo located near Sacramento, San Francisco and Lds Angela. Then .we should have a larger allowance from the general Government to arm and equip our trcops. When these thiu?s are accomplished the National Guard of California will be equal to any la the Union." It is said that a new troop of cavalry will be organized here in a few days and that tha State property now held by Captain Waller's trooD will bs turned over to it It ia admitted that when the new troop is organized it w 11 bo captained by one of the officers who has been mustered out of the service, buttiot by one of those now iu the troop. . RICHMOND DISTRICT. Various Improvements Recently Started Being Rapidly Pushed. Work ia progressing rapidly in connection with the 'new carhouse which the Suiter-street Railway Company is constructing at t,ha corner of Clement street and Thirty-third avenue in the Richmond District The foundations have been completed and the building lumber has been transported to the grounds. It will, when completed, bs a frame building 2B9 by 600 foot, and is to cost about 8,000. Last Saturday a large pieoe of property situated at the northeast corner of Thirty-second avenue and Clement was purchased by John Drummonl. He will build thereos a two-story frame building for living purposes and stores, plans for which will be filed this week. The recent assessmeat for the sewer out- let has been fixed at $6 for every twenty-five-foot lot, which is conslderei to ba t very reasonable rate. THINKS THEY WERE HASTY. Chairman Davis Says the Printers Did Not Understand the Situation. "Ia levying a fine of 125 upon any of Its members turning out In tha parade on the Fourth of July, the Printers' Union evidently did so without an investigation ef the facts," said Chairman W. H. Davis of the Fourth of July Exeoutive Committee yesterday. "We were letting out work by contract to be paid for by other people'a money, and as a business proposition naturally gave the contraots to the lowest bidder. Mr. Caspar, of Caspar & Co's printing firm, was in to see me to-day, and I told him of the action of the printers. He said he would join the union. As regards the Musicians' Union there are two unions. each claiming Itself to be the bona fide one and the other to be non-union, we naa no way of determining which was which, and in order to have musio we had to select one of the two, which we did." There will be 1000 or the BUOO seats in the Auditorium at Woodward's Garden reserved on the Fourth for the singers, oity officials, officers of the army and navy, foreign consuls, etc. .The remaining seats will be given to the public. On the evening of the Fourth the tri-! urapbal arch will ba illuminated from 8 to 12 o'clock with 800 incandescent lights. The search lights on the - cruisers Phila delphia and Olympia will also be thrown on the city from tho harbor. SHOT IN THE ARM. Louis Jergenson Says a Friend Shot Him While Fooling. A man giving his name as Louis Jergen son was trea ed at tha Receiving Hospital last evening for a bullet wound in the right arm. It was a superficial wound, tha bullet going through the fleshy part of the man's arm. He said that he had been shot at the Fourteen-mile House, on tha San Bruio road, by a friend who was tooling with a pistol. He also said he lived at the Lafayette Hotel, on the San Bruno road. The police think that the person who shot him Intended to kill him. Jergenson would not say anything about the affair, except that it was ail a joke. BA! Of .OIRCE BUSINESS.

DiUo lectured on " Futriotio America" at Metropolitan Temple Lit night, the aldross being the sixty-first of the Camera Club's series of Illustrated presentation. Dr. Dille's lecture was almost wholly historical. He told the story of the Rivoluttonary war aud of the war of the Ribslllon, and bath subjects were op'.ously illustrated with photo-op icon' slides. Speaking of Washington's victories the lociurer held that the prayers of the groat General made the American victories pos-siolb. After this statement a colored picture of Washington was shown, kneeling in prayer by a tree at Valley Forge. "Here Is tha Father of bis Country," said the speaker. ' imploring God to aid the Just cause of the colonies. God did not neglect tho appeal, and that teaches us that the weak colonios could not have succeeded without the aid of prayer." The lecturer referred to the fact that when Joe Jefferson was playing Rip Van Winkle in Dublin be was cheered whenever ho quoted the well-known eulogy on Washington. This was one of the things which showed that the great General was everywhere regarded as a hero. He referred to Lincoln'a matchless life of toil, to Grant's genius and to the heroes of every field whore mon have fought and died in freedom's holy causn. A novel feature of the address was singing by a quartet in the background. Among the songs that caught the audience were " The Star Spangled Banner" and "John Brown's Body." The lecturer gave a hasty history ef American patriotism from Washington to the present era. Xot Enough for Jnatlee Shaw. Bekkelet, July 1. Edward H. Shaw has resigned as a Justice of the Peace.

A nice-looking middle-aged man came at 10 o'clock and offered money. He was thanked and told that no more money could be accepted. He looked disappointed, but he went away. At noon he came back and aaid he bad a bed and a chair he wanted to give to some one.

Each case which was reported was investigated at once and dealt with according to tho results of the Investigation. Two or three people tried to get things they did not deserve, but they must have given out the news of their Ill-success, for no mora came after them. Many familios were found yesterday who were destitute, but whd would not apply for help. Tha lists, however, are nearly full now, and only the final settling up remains to be done. By to-night it is hoped that every family which suffered in the fire will be sitting down to a good, substantial supper in a good, comfortable room.

The Bsard of Trustees Is About to Legalize Fifteen Sanitary Ordinances-Welcomed by the People. Bekkelet, July 1. The city of Berkeley ia being well bestirred over iu sanitary provisions. New and improved conditions are soon to be brought about and much interest ia being awakened. Through the suggestions of Health Officer Kowoll flf-tson ordinancos will be enacted by the Board of Trustees at its next meeting. The fulfilling of the requirements of these ordinances, in addition to the provisions In existence at present, la regarded as the beginning ot the perfection of Berkeley's sanitary condition. At present it Is neither better nor worse than other small cities of California, but its purpose i to head the list of cities with a short death roll. Th a is not a new idea, but the fruit of twelve years' work. During that entire period it is claimed that there has been a era lual decline of conservatism that made improvements along this line it no; impossible, at least difficult. Now, the Board of Trustoes, having under consideration the fifteen ordinances, believe that with thoir enforcement Berkeley will ba brought to almost certain immunity from epidemics or sanitary disadvantages of any kind. Among the most important m asur s are an ordinance creating the office of sanitary inspector ot all plumbing in ho-.ses in tho town of Berkeley; one concerning the hauling of garbago, rubbish and manure through the publio streets; an ordinance enncernihg laundries, and providing that proper so w r connec ions be maintained by the persons owuing or conducting such laundries; an ordinance prescribing certain rules for plumbers in Berkeley; one prohibiting the Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report AB&OWWEVX PURE Tha raaiens why tha Royal Bakiof Powder tssaparlor to all others arc easily stated.

Those decisive steps are being taken through the determined and harmonious actions of the Board ot Trustees and Health Officer Howell. Dr. Rowell, keeping in view the purpose of the authorities to make Berkeloy a model city, went to the convention of Health Officers of the State held last April, with the purpose of determining the sanitary needs of Bsreke-lav. As a result, the provisions made by other towns were carefully considered and the best sifted out. From these the board again sifted until they believe that the provisions that are now being made for the cl'y's welfare will include the best selection of sanitary measures. "Though this has beon a matter of education with Berkeley," said Dr. Rowell, " the people nre now so muoh awako to the fact that the action of tha board is not arbitrary that we have the r hearty, intelligent and unanimous support. I well remember the tims when objections were often made to our placing a sign indicating the presence of diphtheria in a bouse. Now we are as often asked to place it. This change ot sentiment will illustrate the progress made in other and more important matters, so that we foresee nothing but a cheerful recognition of our measures as conducive to the promotion of Berkeley to the head of the list of well-equipped towns." Chare-ed With Cruelty. Police Judge Campbell has Issued a warrant for the arrest of Mrs. Angle A. Denlo of 413 Fourth street, who is charged with eruef neglect of her son. For ten days past Mrs. Denlo has in various ways ill-treated her boy, who has been dependent upon the oharlty of neighbors for his maintenance.

The outspoken manner in which some mora or less prominent members of the Olympio Club have expressed their desire to make Herman Oelrichs, the New York millionaire, the next President of that or ganization, has had the effect of calling forth protests from some who have for years identified themselves with tha club's interests. " ' Though tha eleotloa does not take plaoe until next month, tha work of organizing the different political factions has already been begun, and muoh discussion as to the possibilities regarding the head of tha ticket is being indulged In by the younger members. A majority of tho young men retain their membership because of tha onnortnnitv oflordsd to DarticiData in athletlo sports. They give little heed to the material needs and interests of the organization. To them the coming election will furnish an opportunity to bring about what they claim is a needed reform in the existing rules. The principal objection to Mr. Oelrichs seem to be that he is a society man and that he is not a Californian. It ia urged that as President he would probably seek to promote a condition ot things that would enhance the social importance of the olub, but which would, at the same time, curtail the privileges of those who think the personal Interests of members should be the first and only consideration. These men say that while Mr. .Oelrichs may be a good financier his ability in this particular would ba of little avail were he placed at the head of the Olympic Club, because he has no in-tiutate'knowledge of the workings of the institution. There are many members of the club who would like to see William Greer Harrison again at the head of the organization, but that gentleman has given his friends to understand that under no consideration will he allow his name to be used as a oandidate for the Presidency. Ho has no desire to emaree from bis voluntary retirement, though his interest in the affairs ot the organization will at all times muke him one of its most valuable mem-bors. Among the men who are being mentioned as likely candidates Is James K. Wilson, Pres dentof the Sather Banking Company, j Ho is an active and enthusiastic member and Is, besides, extremoly popular. He served a term as Presid.-nt some years ago, and is thoroughly familiar with tha financial and other intorestsof ths organization. His friends tried to induce him to head the ticket last year, but he declined. His candidacy would be popular. Leonard D. Owens, President of the California Drug and Spice Mills, has many friends who would like to see him at the head of affairs at the Olympio Club. He is among the list ot likely candidates. HOSPITAL CASES. Over Five Hundred Insane Patients Treated in a Year. The ambulanoe which was presented to the Receiving Hospital by the Doctors' Daughters will run, night and day hereafter. Dr. Sorners has determined to have a surgeon and a steward accompany it on all Us trips. From a report compiled by Steward Truann of the hospital it appears that 5,704 cases have been treated during the vear endin g June 3d. Of these cases 521 wore for insanity. There were nlnetv-two deaths during the year, and twenty-one dead bodies were brought into the hospital. Of the 531 patients brought into the hospital to be treated for insanity, 203 were sent to ths State Asylums. Since thi closing of Dr. Potter's Home of Inebriates many insane persons have been kept in the hospital. Tbev have cost the city the salary of a steward, $63 a month, and 20 a month for food. During the year only ninety-two deaths occurred, the same numbr "s during the preceding year, when 968 cases less were treated. FluHTIJIS FOSJ;FRANCH!SE, Rival Street-Car Companies Will Lock Horn Before) tha Supervisors. THE BOARD ORDERS SALARIES PAID. Resolutions Providing for an Increase of tha Police Department Passed With, out a Dissenting Vote. , Behrend Joost, Prasident of the San Francisco and San Mateo Railroad Company, whose application far a franchise through Sunny Side and Osean avenuea to tha new racetrack was not saved from defeat by the vote In the Street Committee, attended the meeting of tha Board of Sii-par visors yesterday. Mr. Joost wanted to preolpltate a fight la the open board, and ha retained Lawyer Van Duser to present his side or the controversy. Mr. Van Duser, however, did not get a chance to talk, as the Supervisors referred the matter back to ths Coamittes on Streets. Ths Market-Street Railroad Company, whioh also wants a branch to the new raos-track, has filed two petitions from property, owners on Sunny Side avenue and Ocean Vie w avenue, urging the Supervisors to glva that company the franchise. The San Mateo road was practioally refused on last Thursday. The two petitions will be laid before tho Committee on Streets next Thursday afternoon and will be considered in conjunction with the returned application. The prospect, therefore, of a lively fight between the rival companies is very bright. Ohlandt & Buok, who are interested in the San Mateo railroad, petitioned tha board not to refuse the franchise. The Finance Committee's resolution, providing for the transfer ot f 300,000 now In the Treasury to the general fund to pay May and June salaries, waa passed. The same committee's action in purchasing two new fire engines was indorsed. A resolution appropriating $3,000 to defray the expenses of the Fourth of July celebration was adopted, and another resolution, providing that the polico foroe shall hereafter consist of 550 men, was adopted unanimously. This resolution was submitted by Chairman Benjamin of tha Health and Police Committee, and though it was simply a correction its acceptance waa significant of the intention of the Supervisors to increase the police force and provide for the expenditure of 1 116,000 more than the Auditor has allowed for thai department.
