OFFICER WATCHES ROBBER AT WORK Patrolman Allows Man to Hold Up Victim Then Arrests Him. SAN FRANCISCO, April 5. Policeman F. C. Kracke of the southern station was present at the scene of a daring holdup this morning, witnessed the crime from start to finish and then. calmly stepping from his place of conceilment, arrested the robber before the eyes of his dazed anil frightened victim, and escorted him to the city prison. John Cahill. a waiter, residing at the Dewey House, Fourth and Howard streets, was on his way to his room at 2:30 a. m. when on Ritch street, between Brannan and Townsend, he was suddenly seized by a footpad who had been tracking him. grasped around the throat and thrown heavily against a wall. The thug, evidently experienced in his work, deftly searched his civtim. taking a gold watch and chain, and turned to leave him. when he was confronted by Officer Kracke, who had his handcuffs ail ready. It was the work of a moment to secure the culprit, who gave his name as James Cody, and said he was a bartender. He was booke dfor robberv. He was ushered In Nibs." where he just New Ycrk way. The tickled that he kept hour telling about the Sultan of Turkey, before his "Royal smiled in that old old fellow was so "Noodles" over an big things in America. "The Sultan of Turkey." says "The Sultan of Turkey,' "Noodles." "is a very smart There is one thing particularly Noodles says fellow, that I noticed about him; that is. he was keen for information, and when I told him there were buildings in New York fifty stories high he looked surprised and I thought right there that I would put one over on the old boy, so I said. 'Yes. and we put hinges on the three top stories.' He turned quickly and said. What's that for?" and I said. 'To let them down to allow the moon to pas?.' "I thought he wovM die laughing. He offered to pay my farn to Fersia to see the Shah, who was never known to laugh, but I told him that I was too busy. He bade me good-bye on the night that I left and asked me to come and. see him again. And. just think, since then he has lost his job. Too bad." said "Noodles," with a sigh. LIKES THE KAISER. Noodles was asked his opinion of Km-peror William of Germany. He said that he was as gren t as his mustache; that "His Fmps" was some class when he dressed up in his military front. Noodles said. "I consider him the fashion plate of all ICurope." On Saturday morning in his lecture Noodles will show pictures taken on his visits to all parts of the world. Fagan said that he wished he could have every little child in Oakland come and hear his talk on the Slums of New York and the great Ohetti district on the Kast Side. Noodles will tell of how he distributes milk, clothing and food among the little urchins of the metropolis. He will also tell of how the big newsboy dinners are ananged on the Bowery for Christmas day. and how they are taken care of. "It Is an art." said Noodles, "to feed the poor along the Bowery, for there are so many different nationalities, hut We. always find a way to satisfy every one." THE OAKLAND TRIBUNE invites all the boys and girls, their mothers and fathers. In Oakland. tr hear Noodles talk and entertain at the Bell theater Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. Tickets can be had free by calling at THE TRIBUNE office, or at the box office of the Bell theater. THK OAKLAND TRIRl'N'E will have special ushers there to look after the children. TELLS HOW TO SELL PAPERS. "Say, boys." said Noodles to a crowd of OAKLAND TRIBUNE hustlers in front of the office yesterday afternoon, "there is a little secret in hustling a newspaper. First, it must be a live one. THK OAKLAND TRIBUNE is that. Then urn on the stea mand let the people know the feature news of the day. I think the Oakland boys are clever hustlers, and one thing I notice particularly is the politeness shown all customers by the boys in this city, and that's a very good thing. "One of tlie secrets of success is po liteness, and another is to sell clean papers. I always made it a rule to sell the top paper first. The newsboy that sells the clean sheet is usually the one that makes the most money. I wish every boy i i Oakland could see his way clear to save a .little money out of each day's sales, so they could go to night school; then, along with their business training of selling papers each day on the streets, and good habits, they would get mentaly equipped to hold a very good position." Many of our great men got their starts selling papers. Noodles completely won the hearts of the little fellows, and when he left one little urchin said: "Noodles is O. K. He don't talk any slang but the straight from the shoulder kind. He makes us , fellows feel like we've known him all our lives. And when we go to the Bell Saturday morning the ovation the boys will give him will make him think he is President of the United States."

The house will be well filled upon that oc-easion, which will he praoed by the artistic fezes of the Shriners, who number 300 in this county.

BONDS PROPOSED WAR TO BE WAGED FOR AUDITORIUM City Council Will Consider the Proposition in General Committee. ON POOL RESORTS Vose and Bronner Declared Them to Be "Blind Pigs" and Gambling Dens. APPEALS TO THE BOYS. He touched the boys by his appealing to their love for home. He pictured for them the morning police court scene, the stern-eyed judge, the dishevelled prisoners rounded up among the drunkards. He tried to make them realize a man humiliation whn the judge asks. is your name?" and he must drag his mother's name into that atmosphere. Again and again "Xoodles" came back to the importance of clean living in order that the boy should be strong and cope with the world. Good health is one of man's greatest assets. John D. Rockefeller, the richest man in the world, can't eat pie. but "Xoodles" can. He said so himself, and. if the smile accompanying the assertion was as expressive as expansive, "Noodles" not only can but does. Xo one can doubt that "Xoodles," the newsboy, is quite as happy as Rockefeller, the millionaire-. One of the boys said of him: "It is no wonder that 'Xoodles' is a rich man. if h works like he talks. He is the funniest and saddest fellow I ever heard speaking." Resigns as Assessor After Fifteen Years MARTIXEZ, April 5. Henry I). Jones, for fifteen years county assessor of Contra Costa county, handed in his resignation before the board of supervisors yesterday. George O. Meese, who has Tied the position of deputy assessor for tli- last seven years, was appointed by the hoard to fill the vacancy. Business reasons is the cause given for Jones' resignation. He intends to devote more of his time to his real estate business. For twenty years he has been identified prominently in the politics of the state, being affiliated with the Republican party. The new assessor is chairman of the Republican County Central Committee. Arrest Engineer For Slaying of Two ABERDEEN, Wash.. April 5. J. Kllngenberg. donkey man on the schooner West, was arrested in connection with the disappearance of Charles Hedberg and John Hoffman, when the vessel arrived here yesterday. Attempt had been 'What I Prev'ous'y made at Santa Rosali, Mex.. to apprenend Kiingenoerg, nut without success. In connection with the disappearance of Hedberg and Hoffman. William Gohl is already under arrest and fav-alting trial on a charge of murder in the first degree. The auditorium proje-t came up before the city council last night in the form of a request that the municipality should J about uiiuni Hie wortt aim pro loe ior us construction by the Issuance of bonds to the amount of $500,000. ' A delegation composed of C. C. Craig, W. E. Gibson. J. W. Garthwalte. H. I Hinman. C. F. Cole, C. F. Gorman and Carl H. Renter, representing the Progress and Prosperity Committee of the Chamber of Commerce appeared before the city council to urge that the proposed bond issue should be provided for In the next election held for that purpose. C. C. Craig was called upon to address the council but he suggested that W. E. Gibson was better prepared to talk upon the subject. Mr. Gibson said: "This proposition re quires no lengthy argument to set forth its advantages and benefit to the entire city. We have been doing great things in this city and have greater ones In view. We are shortly to have one of the finest hotels in this State and with the advantages we possess we should aspire to become a great convention city. We look about us and see the cities having capacious convention and assembly halls are foremost amonsr the communities that occupy the public attention. The time is at hand when we should reach out to claim those great assemblages that mean advertising to the city as -well as bring profits to its hotels and business interests and indirectly confers its benefits on every citizen. Kansas City with a population not as great as cram has one of the finest auditoriums in th-- country- It holds twenty thousand people and has attracted some of th greatest political conventions and musical assemblages. It lias been a good business investment." BY PRIVATE CAPITAL. In response to Councilman Stlefvater Mr. Gibson stated that it was built by private capital. He declared, however, that it could not be successfully dotKt that way , in Oakland. The proposed bond Issue 'for auditorium purpos s will impose a. tax of 34 cents on the $1000, wh,ether the auditorium should not be required to be levied as he was confident that the revenue from the auditorium would amply provide for the upkeep of the place as well as pay Interest charges and sinking fund to redeem tlie bonds. In'reply to Elliot's "question as to whether the auditorium should no be built on the shores of Iuake Merritt, Mr. Gibson stated that no site as yet had been favored, but in his opinion the lake or other municipal property was the proper location for such a structure. He stated that plans were being prepared by an architect showing in outline what such a building should be and lie would submit that with other data to the! council. I The council decided to take the matter up in the committee of the whole when I the committee will be present to confer J on the proposition. Councilman Vose has declared Jjlmself as being after the billiard anil nool room s town, which he denounces as the breeding places for young criminals. He Introduced an ordinance in the City Council last night that prohibits minors under U from visiting such places and also places a penalty upon the owners and managers of such resorts who permit those under that age to enter them. The Counoilma n urged the Immediate passage of the ordinance to first reading, declaring that the existing conditions warranted prompt action in order to save the youth of the city from the evil associations that attend pool and billiard rooms. "I know of a father who was laughed at by the owner of a pool room when he asked that his son he denied admission to the place." Councilman Bronner said he was In favor of the ordinance, but he had In preparation a still more drastic measure, which barred aliens from conducting such places and placed them all under a police surveillance. "It is a well-known fact that the majority of these pool rooms," said Bronner. "are nothing more than 'blind pigs' and gambling mills.' where, under the Innocent pretense of pool and billiards, are nothing more than dives. "The ordinance I have in preparation and which Is now in the hands of the City Attorney will bar all foreigners from' operating such places anil surrounds those that are operated under a special license that Is provided with certain restrictions, which will prevent them from being conducted as pitfalls for hoys, and as lounging places for men." The Vose orrllna.noe was referred to the committee, where Its features will he combined with those as Bronner stated were embodied in the measure he had prepared to submit.
