The lumber carrier came from Fort Bragg.- She Jiad hardly-cleared from that port when she ran Into a heavy southeast gale. When off Point Reyes the storm reached its height and tke lumber carrier shipped suvoral heavy seas. The strain on her deck lashings was so great that they parted and 10,000 feet of lumber was washed overboard. For a few moments It seemed as If she would be forced, to ask for aid, but luc vessel soon righted herself and raine Into port under her own steam. She Is at the Panama Lumber company's wharf at tttsent discharging lumber. After com plating this operation she will probably go on the ways of a local conuorn for repairs. Ksportlrtg heavy weather outside, the four-masted schooner Defiance ran up the stream under tow yesterday and laid alongside the E. K. Wood Lumber company's wharf. The windjammer. In charge of Captain Saletzka, came from Grays Harbor. Bhe Is discharging 700,000 feet of lumber. The United States revenue cutter Man tling Is at the United Engineering Wot undergoing a general overhauling. A other government vessel, the tug general McDowell, Is also on the ways at the Moore & Bcott shipyards. Wlh the changing of the steam schooner Nehalem from the fleet of the Hammond Lumber Co. to that of the Hlcks-Hauptman Co.. comes the an nouncement from the headquarters of the Hammond Co. that arrangements have been made to construct a new vessel to take the place of the Nehalem. The new vessel will be of the steam-schooner class, and will be built In the shipyards at Falrhaven. 6he will be a trifle larger than the Nehalem and will be put on the run between this and the port of Eureka. The contract calls for the vessel's completion inside of seven months.

The Svea operates on the lumber run between Grays Harbor and this port. After discharging nitre and .fertilizer at Long wharf, the Kosmos freighter Se-bara, Captain Klip, steamed for the north this morning. She will run north to Pufet Sound, from whence she will sail for the German coast. The holiday release of drunks, from the city prison on their own recognizance- ofter "examinations" before Captain J. F. Lynch was conducted this morning from the Jail yard In the case of five Inebriates. All were allowed to go. It Is the custom on holidays not to hold the drunks for another day In custody to await the 'convening of court, and Captain Lynch -finds considerable amusement ...in... putting the Jtien . through a course of questions. Tsl morning his "class" was well Informed, and answered questions about George Washington, the date of his birth and the achievements for whlc bjfie was famous, that might have stumped a grammar school pupil. Only one flash of humor enlivened the examination. When Captain Lynch came to ' the teat of his condldates for -release, he asked the question: "For what was George Washington famous?" The answer came without hesitation: . "Because he wouldn't take the nom-. Inatlon for a third term." 4 SACRAMKNTO, Feb.

OAKLAND TRIBUNE TREASURER IE vfcrm If5)tpl1k: iiinnirnn niunnr ' AWWT ' HVtZZr tali W ZS.L i l Uxa Declares MacMullen's Suit Is Outcome of Threat to "Get Even." Edwin Meese, city treasurer of Oakland. . has made . the following statement In regard to the autt brought against him by C. S. MacMul-lan. alleging malfeasance In office: "Th(t fact that C. S. MacMullan has brought suit against me fc alleged malfeasance in-office and has distributed thousands of copies of circulars defaming- me and the city ad ministration generally calls for some explanation. "The entire explanation, is to be found in -the motive that prompts Mr. MacMullan's action. Mr. MacMullan declares his business to be that of tax expert. It is a very proper business and Mr. MacMullan has'a perfect right to follow it. The manner in which he deals wlth.-his clients is no business of mine, but the manner in which he deals with the city, through my or fice, is very decidedly by business. Many sums of money have been paid to him on assignments from taxpay ers to whom , a rebate on personal property taxes was due. The Political Cod makes it mandatory -fen-me-te honor such assignments. "For many -months complaints have been received at this office from tax-payers .who claim not to have re-ceived their tax refunds. Many de clared that they had given MacMul lan an assignment years ago and had heard no more of it. As a public servant I Investigated several of these complaints. M;Mullan!s form of as signment I found entitled him to go back as many years as he liked, and apparently remained In fore forever. I understood that MacMullan agreed to accept half of these refunds for his share of the work. Very properly I notified the taxpayers that there wasno need to employ anybody to collect their money. They could call upon a telephone and learn in a min ute if anything was due them. ' "?Jot long ago MacMullan came to me with an assignment from James A. Joyce, who has been dead for years. On my refusal to recognize this as signment, MacMullan . threatened to 'get even,' and I presume he considers he is now doing it. Other assignments recently presented' were old ones of the firrns of Gardner & Mitchell and Reed & Miller, firms long since out of existence. How could I reasonably pay any SUCb claims to MacMullan ? The Albers Bros. Milling Company, of Sixteenth and Wood streets, wrote me concerning their tax refunds, and said: 'From the, manner in which the party acted we were led to be lieve that he was authorised by. the city to make this transaction, and he in no way gave us to understand that we were assigning our claim to a pri vate individual, with the. understand ing that he should keep all that was due over and above the amount ' he handed us.' "I received a letter from Max C. ticnuiz, in wnicn ne says: 'i gave Mr. MacMullan an assignment of claims years ago. Don't know whather ha-ollcteiLoLnQtasI never received any money.' MONET WAS PAID. "On looking at my records and re turn checks I find that I paid Mac Mullan a check drawn In. favor of C S. MacMullan, assignee of Max Schulz, on March 6, 1909. The check was paid at the bank on MacMullan's endorsement. Tet Schulz Informs me he has never received the monev. "I have several other letters, many or tnem expressing surprise t that as slgnments made years ago-are.stt1Mn-force. t then notified MaiMullan jthat' his assignments mustshW Just and that they m'ust 'be swojn to before a notary before I would honor any trior of them. "When I tod MacMullan of my de. cision in the matter he was very angry and declared he would have things his own way or he would know why. "These tax refunds are not 'public moneys,' the Supreme Court having ruled that they are the private property of tha taxpayers.. This being the case, they are not covered by my "bohd end require' even extra attention and care in disbursement. I deposited them in a bank under the account name of 'Exess ' persona! property tax account Edwin Meese.' SAFEST PLACE. 'They could only be touched by check signed by ,me and my chief deputr, Mr, . Fltzmauncer I considered this the safest place, and I am glad now, in view of developments, that I have all the return checks In my office. I discussed this method of payment with, City Expert L. G. Jerdah- and he agreed wtih me that it was the most businesslike' jjlan .of handling these moneys. - At no time has a total amount on hand exceeded $2200, few. of the refunds amounting to $10 and many being as low as a few cents. '.'When the new charter went Into effect, upon the advice of the city attorney, I put this money in the safe In my office, where it Is at present. There Is nftl the slightest ground for criticism inny particular. Every, thing has bein strictly businesslike throughout, tfftd I am glad that MacMullan has ccreated the opportunity for me to give this statement of facts to the public. "I wish to repeat that there, is no need of any taxpayer paying a cent of commission to recover a refund. They can telephone or call at this office snd will be cheerfully given all the information they desire..? 1000 WILL HEAR GOV. ' WILSON AT BANQUET TOPEKA. Kas.. Feb. 22.
