STOCKTON EVENING MAIL, TTIUKSDAY, MARCH C, 1002, 8 Man Who Entered Senator Muen' ter's House Thought It Was His Own Home. Andrea Pvdroui, the Italian who entered Senator Muenters house near la-throp at 3 o'clock one morning recently, was brought before Judge Jones for insanity yesterday afternoon, Drs. Sargent and Gibson conducting the examination. The man appealed perfectly rational, ansueiing intelligently, through an interpreter, all the Questions put to him. The testimony showed that he had been drinking heavily for a whole week before the occurrence at Muenter? place, his drinks consisting of wine and brandy in vopious draughts a mixture enough to give any man delirium trciners. Pedrotti stalled afoot from tins city at 7 o'clock in the evening, intending to go to Tesla in search of work. He took with him a bottle of biandy. from which he drank on the road. It seems that his old home in Italy is situated in the outskirts of a village eleven mile, from a city which he used to isit often, and upon arriving at I.athrop, Idrot:i, in his liquor-soaked condition, imagined he was still in Italy, from which country he came only two years ago. He thought Lathrop was th Italian village, and. mistaking Muenuis house for his own, he entered it. Mr. Muenter and his hired man took harge of Pediotu. whom they supposed to be insane. He was quiet at the time and offered no violent e, though occasionally piobsbly trjing to make them understand that it was his house and they were Intruders he would lay his band on the wail or some other object and say. Mine: all mine. It is a characteristic of persons suffering from delirium tremens to be afraid of everything, and upon hearing a dog bark Pedrotti made a dash to get out of doors. Not knowing what damage he might do to property, Muenter ran after him, and, seizing his arms from behind, forced him back into the room from which he had run. He discovered then that the man had picked up a case-knife. with which he was jabbing backward. The knife, however, being blunt, was as harmless as a poker and no damage resulted. After Pedrotti had been disarmed and bound, with other assistance, Constable Shepherd was summoned. Mr. Muenter combated the theory that the man was suffering from delirium tremens, saying he could smell no liquor on Pedrottis breath. The doctors thereupon informed him, that that was a peculiarity of delirium tremens. The only circumstance which might be construed as indicating insanity was the fact that Pedrotti had some wheels with which he was trying to devise a perpetual motion machine. Thee he carried in a grip. Dr. Sargent remarked that the mere fact of Pedrottis having tried perpetual motion signified nothing, as many able men had dune the same thing, but the idea that anyone could make a machine with such materials as he possessed was strange. The physicians came to the conclusion that the man had most likely been suffering from delirium tremens, but suggested that he be kept at the detention hospital for a few days longer, when they could diagnose his case with more certainty, HE MOST ABOLISH THE STRAIT-JACKET. Socb a Dsmand Will Bi Made of Warden Aguirre as a Result of Em Thompsons Casa. The California Prison Commission wiii demand that Aguirre abolish the use of the strait-jacket in the San Quentin prison, on penalty of being proceeded against by a dozen or more benevolent organizations throughout the State. This is the result of the case of Ewe Thompson, the young colored man who was crippled for life by confinement in the strait-jacket while a prisoner under Aguirre, as reported fully by the Mail a few days ago. The San Francisco Chronicle to-day says that Thompson is in that city to lay the story of his abuse before the California Prison Commission, of which Charles Montgomery is President. Mr. Montgomery is quoted as saying: This ease of Thompson's is the latest nf a that has come to the attention of the. commission, ar.d it will be uhout the lat. Such inhuman work as this must stop. We are joined now by evtry charitable and religious society in the city in an effort to force Warden Aguirre to premise to discontinue the practice or to f ic-e serious charges in court. I; is inconceivable that both in Foist m and San Quentin the strait-jacket is still bong UfccJ when there can be no question that the overwhelming sentiment of the people of the State Is opposed to it. Governor Gage must kr.ow it. to. Here is th.? boy Thompscn ruined and crippled for lire because of a trifling infraction of the prL-on rubs that he could have bun pioperl pun-islnd for in man? wus. Mr. Mnntffom-ry added that Warden Aguirre would be asked' to abolish the strait-jacket, and that if he refused a dozen or more benevolent organizations throughout the State would unite to prosecute him. CROSS-LEVEES BROKEN vii uiiyu The Danger to Ecnldln and Staten Is Temporarily Alerted. The following telegram was received by the Mail to-dav from Sacramento: Dcpuii fchmff J. J.

As stated by the Mail yesterday, the cutting of the levee would have endangered also the safety of Bouldin and Staten islands in this county. The Yoor-man Company owns land on both Tyler and Bouldin. The breaking of the cross-levees on Andrus island, of which mention is made in the foregoing telegram, is known here to hae afiorded only temporary relief. A u It gram which appears in another column of this paper slates that there has been a very heavy storm, amounting almost to a cloudburst, in the upper Sat i ufiento valley, and that that stream will l.s-r again, in this event the situation on Andrus island will be worse than bt fore, for two divisions instead of or.e will be under water. Cross-levees are comparatively low embankments, and those on Andrus island will very likely be under water in the event of another flood stage of the Sacramento. The laiger the aia of water the greater the danger of hvees breaking, because the wash of wavt formed by the wind sweeping over the water. The situation in the locality is shown by the following telegram. All the islands mentioned form a group: A portion of the levee protecting Brannan bl ukng Jackson eloush has given way. Information received at Walnut Giove i? to the ff, cl that the brtak is a tvriou? om, ami no hoje of being able to till it in t me to .k tin- district is entertained. The brtak was cauj,d by the great rush of water wlvch is sttep;ng over Andrus island. U w.i- imported that two breaks in the Itvee cn Smirnrn Hand had occurred, but nothing w.m kin yn of their extent or location. Wab'ut Giove reports Tyler Hand as Irena -aft. The Heeding of Andrus and Brannan islands i- said to have afforded much relief to the It u on Tyler island, particularly on the G niguna slough side. G:an I.

Wotk done by the representatives of the va-tious interests now seeking the development of interior California, at a meeting held in the Chamber of Commerce yesterday, gvs a long way toward insuring a vigmous campaign, not only a-rogaids the development of the Saciu-mento valley, where the movement originated, but of all sections of the State which are commercially tributary to Sun Francisco. The plan of campaign prepared and indorsed by the delegates attending tht convention yesterday, and which will now go befote the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce to be acted on, proposts these things: 1. That the Chamber of Commerce shall urge upon tht- people of San Francisco the m-ctpeity and the value of co-operating and financially a.- sting the new movement. A miles metling is called to this end. 2. The formation of a central committee, composed of thrte members from each association inttneied ar.d an equal number from the Chamber of Commerce. 3. Tht establishment of a large permanent exhibit in this city. 4. The opening of every possible channel of publicity in the matter of placing exhibits, distributing literature, etc. 5. The co-operation of the railroads to be secured in the maintenance of energetic representations at Portland. Ogdtn, Ltd AngeKs and othtr main travel points. 6. To foster legislation which Is to interior California and to oppose that which is not. 7. To aid in the maintenance of natural water and forest supplies, and the tivnso.i cf the irrigation system. S. To i:isist that all who are benefited by thtse things bear their share of the burden of expense. Although yesterdays meeting was called to give the Sacramento Valley Development Association, the railroad men and a sub-committee of the Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to map out a campaign of publicity and impimv-ment, it was attended by many from other parts of Northern California. BARR MAKES A HIT. Professor James A. Barr of Ptookt-m, one of the new delegates and one of the best speakers of the day. said that the people of the San Joaquin valley wanted to join with the people of otner valleys in this new scheme of promotion. He continued: But San Francisco should at one? and without iv- taticn assume the leadership in thi.-mevement Los Angtks baas in all such mat-teis in Suthirn California, and San Fran-e'sco should do the same in the northern part cf the S ate. If the Chamber of Commerce hire is in d-iubt as to that. I want to e-t it r.ght. T; . same organization in Los Angel. s dechns its purpose to be the devel- n li 1 1 1: Kll A case of "now you see him and r.ow you don't" spoiled an awful good newspaper story this morning. Whenever anything happens in San Francisco, Stockton is always expected to contribute something, and Stockton is generally there with the annunciators on. If a San Francisco criminal is doing the fugitive act he is supposed to be hiding in' Stock-ton or headed this way, and the Stockton police are always notified to be on the look-out. That's the way it was to-day. Some time ago a policeman named iiobinson was murdered in San Francisco bv men who were out on a highway robbery Expedition that they might obtain money for the d.-fense of George Moore, one of their gang, arrested in Stockton for shoplifting. The special correspondents of the San Francisco papers worked up their end of the story in great shape. It was supposed that "Kid (ioucher, son of ex-Senator Guucher. was among the gang who shot down the policeman, and efforts to find him have been made ever since, but without avail. A telephone message from Chief Witt-man of San Francisco came to the local police headquarters this morning containing the information that "Kid Goucher had boarded the California Santa Fe limited train at Feint ltich-mond, having left San Francisco at 9 o clock. This train comes through to Stockton without stopping, and the local police were cautioned to be at the passenger station to take Goucher into custody. They were there. The rumor that the fugitive was on the limited train came to the ears of the reporters. and, it being a dull dav in local news circles, they were exceedingly glad Each one supposed that no other reporter but himself knew anything about it. and isions of a sensational scoop danced before his eyes, with a "freak head clear across the first page. The train was due to arrive at U 50 but long before that hour interested people began moving stationward. Tile police hiked" down to the station. Tne reporters "hiked" down to the Ration. Photographer Hollis with his camera hiked down to the ftat'on. The fait limited came into Stockton with a whistle and a roar, while the police five of them took their stations along the track, c;mint. no: of Lc.-- Augrbs. not of California, but of Soi.Unrn r.iiiiorni.i. They r.rst through r. channels between $1mKK and 12 0T fur that pur, ox, and win never they re calbd upon for moie they go on the -triers and g. t it. Once they got tg.thjr $3o( in thw way. 1 want to say to ou frankly that tin- trade of thi griat San Joaquin valley is trcmbl'ng in the balance right now. The Undtncy in, however, toward Los Angeles, and you. g.n-tlenum will have to do something soon to turn the tide. And 1 hope you will. We art-doing oiu share in Stockton. We have oigati-Ized our own Chanio r of Commerce, and a numb rehip already of old It is high time that w- all brgan to pull together, for by doing just that thing Southern CUifornia has st-ruivd tire Uowrnor, a Initid Statu Senator and a majority on every State eom-inirflon. i agJee with other speaken that has cum fur lai'.ical and aggressive action. THE RESOLUTIONS. Jams Horsburgh Jr. presented a series of resolutions which outlined the plans c.f the bureau it is proposed to form. He said that the Chamber of Commerce of San Francisco was disposed to co-operate with the interior counties in the work and he suggested that his resolutions be referred to that body for action, which was done. The resolutions began as follows: Whereas. The prosperity of the city of San Kranebvo as the metropolis of the Pacific -.oast and the prosperity of tributary eectionn are interdependent and the prusptrity of the country immediately adjacent to San Francis, co. compiling tht three sections known as the Sacramento val'iey. the San Joaquin val-ly and the central and coast line counties, s particularly of vital importance to San Francisco: and. Whereas. These- three sections have, through rept tentative associations organized and new birg organized, of town and county L-uards of trade, evinced a lively disposition to further iluir development in every way ie--vibie: therefore, be it, Resolvul. By the San Francisco Chamber uf Commerce, recognizing the very great -rood that must come to San Francisco through such dcvelojment that we urge upon me people of San Francisco the vigorous co-eperation. financially and otherwise, of its atizens with tluse afwxdatlons and others that may hereafter be formed. The resolutions then proceeded to outline the plan of campaign summarized above. AN IMPORTANT COMMITTEE. Mr. Mills moved that a committee be appointed to receive the reply of the chamber of Commerce, and President Newhall, when this was agreed to, selected Messrs. Green of the Sacramento Valley Development Association, Briggs of the San Joaquin Association, Wooster of the Santa Clara, Mills of the State Board of Trade and C. A. Ricketts, not present, who is Secretary -f the San Luis Obispo Board of Trade. ii 10 I the rport. r.- biii ging up the rear.
