THE DUMBARTON CUTOFF OPENED FREIGHT CAN NOW BE TAKEN TO SAN FRANCISCO WITHOUT FERRYING. SAN FRANCISCO, September 14. The Dumbarton cutoff of the South-era Pacific from Newark, in Alameda county, to Redwood CUy, in San Mateo county, which cost 14.600,000, has been opened for freight traffic. Newark will celebrate the opening ot the line on September 24th. - The new road, known officially as the California Central railway, is primarily a freight route and will handle, via Redwood City, all overland freight by the Ogden route, the San Joaquin and Northern California local shipments and Oregon and Northwest freight. This will do away with the freight ferry service across the bay, except the ferry service to and from the Davis street local freight .terminal. At Newark the cutoff connects with the line running to Niles and thence to Tracy, Stockton, Sacramento and all points south, east and north. In crossing the bay at Dumbarton point the company was put to great expense in building a double track steel bridge and trestle 7600 feet in length. The officials say the cost of operating the line will equal that of the ferry freight service, but that (the new service will be faster and better. Tills will be the first direct rail service into San Francisco from Ogden and Central and Northern California. The question of handling passenger trains over the cutoff nas not yet been considered by the officials.

Supposed Thief Is Rounded Up on Washington Schoolhouse After Exciting Chase. Forced at the point of a revolver to climb down from the roof of the Washington grammar school building, Archie Umbria, a colored man, was arrested this morning, suspected of having stolen a bicycle. His arrest brought to an end an exciting chase in which revolver shots and the automobile of Street Superintendent Wright figured prominently. During the pursuit Police Detective Donahue wag thrown violently from his bicycle and it is feared one of his ribs is cracked. Embris, early this morning, attempted to sell a bicycle at a suspiciously low price. The dealer to which the negro attempted to sell informed the police of the circumstance and Chief Briare and Detective Dona hue hastened to the scene. Embris discovered their approach and started rapidly north on Hunter street on the bicycle. At this moment Street Su- perintendent Wright came along in Ms automobile and soon he and Chief Briare were -in pursuit. Meanwhile Detective Donahue secured a bicycle and Joined in the chase. As Chief Briare neared the fugitive he called to him to stop. Unheeding, the negro pedaled on and Chief Briare then fired three times with his re- HOKEY POKEY MAN" MAY BE RICH Ice Cream Vender Who Once Sold Wares in Stockton Heir to San Francisco Property. Mrs. Heydenfeldt, His Mother, May Recover Land on Which Southern Pacific Yards Are Located. Every child in Stockton remembers the Hokey Pokey man, who two years ago sold Ice-cream here while he sang in a big melodious voice, Here comes, here comes that Hokey Pokey man, with his barrel and his can, etc. Well, the Hokey Pokey man, who is really Thor O. Heydenfeldt of San Francisco and was once wealthy, is likely to become a rich man again, according to the San Francisco Call, which says; It was the Hokey Pokey man and not the searcher of records who discovered that Mrs. Elizabeth O. Hey-donfeldt, widow of the former Justice of the Supreme Court of this State, has an excellent chance of recovering property in this city worth a million dollars. The Hokey Pokey man and his eccentric outfit are frequently seen In the streets. Jaunting along In a broken wagon, drawn by a well fed horse, he is most punctual in presenting himself at one schixdhouse after another when the children are at liberty in order to tempt them with his icecream. He used to carry a monkey on his wagon to delight the children. The monkey died and so a coon is now playing the part of the menagerie. Hokey Pokey had an interest in discovering that Mrs. Heydenfeldt has an interest in the three blocks near Seventh and Harrison streets, used by the Southern Pacific for yards Hokey Pokey is Thor O. Heydenfeldt, a son of Mrs. Heydenfeldt. and one of the probable beneficiaries. LEADS ADVENTUROUS LIFE. The vicissitudes that have overtaken Mrs. Heydenfeldt have & counterpart of a graver nature in the life of the son who Is now hawking cornucopias at 5 cents each. When the Spanish war broke out Thor O. Heydenfeldt quit college in Hoboken, New Jersey, enlisted In the regular army and went to the Philippines. On his return he sold some of the property which had been left him by his father and equipped a large expedition for Nome. Returning from Nome the gay youth married. That helped him a little toward getting rid of his $70,000 legacy. Then he bought a racing stable. That helped some more. Next his wife secured a divorce. After the statutory year had elapsed, but before the final decree had been entered, he married again. The first wife then caused Heyden-feldts arrest on a charge of bigamy. Because there was only & technical violation of the law the case was thrown out of court. Heydenfeldt, however, married his second wife a second time, the second ceremony following the filing of the final decree. MEETS MORE REVERSES. When the fire of 1906 forced the mother into the bankruptcy court the son found himself also without means and so, tw'o weeks after the fire, he became the Hokey. Pokey man. Within a year he had saved enough to open an ice-cream factory, but the panic of 1907 made it impossible for the children to secure the nickels for the cornucopias and Hokey Pokey failed. He's now back on the wagon shouting his wares to the children and is striving to provide as well for his wife and family as he can. He no longer has any inclination for the gay pleasures ho sought when in affluence and by those who know' him best Is classed as a good citizen, never happy unless out of debt. Another of the Heydenfeldt children Is Rose Monroe, who is in New York with the Lew Fields company. She U volver. With the sound of the shots the smoke's legs commenced to re volve like a windmill and in a moment he disappeared east on I.indsay street. In the meantime Donahue was rid-1 ing north on San Joaquin street and intercepted Embris at the corner. As he was about to sieze him, Embris ! Jumped from his wheel, throwing it in front of the one ridden by Donahue. This served to hurl the detective violently to the ground and in the interim the negro ran Into the yard of the Washington grammar sohoolhouse and had concealed himself on the roof , when Chief Briare arrived. With the. Chief on one side and Donahue on the other, Embris made two attempts to j descend, only to be confronted by a , leveled revolver. He then perched on ' the peak of the roof and refused to' come down. j After ordering him several times to descend, Chief Briare called to Donahue to notify the hospital and then called to the negro that he was' ! sorry ho hadn't shot him before, but j t this time lie would make It sure. Al- 1 i most before the Chief would have had , time to pull the trigger, Embris had j reached the ground, a thoroughly subdued and willing prisoner. the divorced wife of Lieutenant Monroe, who left her three days after the wedding. ATTORNEYS ARE HOPEFUL Lent & Humphrey and James G. Maguire, attorneys for Mrs. Heydenfeldt, are hopeful of recovering title to the property from the Osmonfc heirs, who would soon have gained clear title to tho property under the McKneroey j Act. That Mrs. Heydenfeldt went i through the bankruptcy court, however, gives rise to & question as to what recourse her creditors will have in tho event of her recovering title. The lease of the Southern Pacific and the Acme Lumber Company runs until i960, but it U believed that the children will have a negotiable equity, as the mother holds only a life estate. But Hokey Pokey isnt building any air castles with the second fortune that seems headid his way. Hes still out for the nickels and has no Intention of giving up the cornucopia trade until he has some of the prospective wealth in hand. CIT Y BRIEFS.

NEW REPUBLICAN CLUB PREDICTED FOR CHICAGO. CHICAGO. September 14. Friends of United States Senator Lorimer, who are frantic with Indignation over the slap given their leader by Theodore Roosevelt in connection with the Hamilton Club dinner, intend entirely to eclipse that affair with a monster function that will be in the nature of a showing of the full Lorimer strength. It is even declared that President Taft will be invited to sit at the head of the table, thus discountenancing the action ot his predecessor in office. As a sequel to the dinner, the organization of a new Republican club in Chicago is predicted. The club is expected to consist of Lorimer's supporters, whose resignation from the Hamilton Club Is looked upon as sur to follow that f their chief, and other prominent Republicans who have no central club affiliations. Details of the program remain to be arranged, hot it is the present intention to hold it prior to the election in .vovember. Speaker Cannon is understood already to have tentatively accepted an invitation, and most of the Illinois Congressmen will be bidden. Love thrives In comfort. Buy her a eas range.
