-3 THE OAKLAND TRIBUNE.. JUNDAY, MORmNQ,:-JUNE, 100C Insurante Companies Slow in Paying Claims. faiuretof -fffbftrf Bros. k -Being Discussed Across Bay. IT ; SAN FRAXilSOO, June 2. Unless the insurance companies meet their obligations yith more speed than they have evinced since the disastrous lire, new San Francisco will be a very indefinite proposition. There is no chance to have the homes that onee crowded the district south of Market street restored unless the insurance policies of the property holders are paid. In fact, it may take more than the payment of the majority of these policies to once again house the naked lands below the slot. As "a rule most of the people south of Market street carried from $1000 to $1,"00 insurance on a residence that could not be duplicated for 1000. Now. unless these people that have lost their homes not only get their insurance money but have a few "heads" on the side, the vast acreage south of the tenement district will remain a cinder path. And as it is with the poor, so is it also with the rich. 3 The business man with a piece of land in a desirable location, who has been robhed of a magnificent structure by the fire, cannot hope to replace that structure without the assistance of the insurance companies in whom he placed his trust when he paid them bis yearly installments. While the hanks, as a rule, are perfectly willing to tike a hanci-, they have no desire to assume all the r:ks in a financial venture, and when they may lend con-.sUraM money on income 1-aring propositions they have no desire to accept rrtzzz- '-n barren land; and that is alwut all LaJf of-.San France-. j. today just barren land.

Vhile Britt jumped in and out pretty well and landed a number of good blows, he never seemed to quite overcome the effect of the punch in the eye. It will be remembered that on the afternoon of September 9th last he never quite overcame the effects of the punch that Nelson gave him in the nose. Now the people that familiarize themselves with pugilistic dope are wondering whether a real good punch early in the game takes the steam out of Britt". If it does he has practically no chance whatever to regain his former eminence as a bruiser. A man has to be able to take more than one punch early in a fight to make a successful showing at the close. Notwithstanding the stories of McOovern's lunacy the punches that Britt landed on his head and face affected him but little. In the clinches the "Terrible Terry" had a shade the best of it, and when the ten rounds were at an end many of the people at the ringside were of the opinion that McGovern had the better of the-go, and had a decision been rendered there is every indication that the verdict would have gone against the Native Son. ; If Britt really did all he could to win he is now not even a good s-ondrater. for Nelson, without half trying, had McGovern in (uh t street in four rounds. If Britt didn't try to win, then the meeting was a fake pure and simple and merely preliminary to a planned twenty found battle. Tim Hurst, who referred the affair, is a particuiar friend oflhe Britts, and.a t l.si friend f the McGovern end. If there was anvthinj? rn,z with 'the u you may be sure that Mr. Hund was in on it.

Ruef, attorney."' j o i i The row between Mrs. Inez Shorb Vjiite, Mrs. Kleaoor Martin's society leader, and Captain Herbtjrt (hum of the Red " Cross is making all sorts of fun for the eltthmen and the army set. Captain Gunn has certainly a b'autful military name. It is quite on a par with that of Ensign Pistol, Major Grape-shot and General Debilitv. So when Mrs.1 Inez Shorb White, whose feminine followers are not irrevocably unacquainted with powder, dubbed Captain Gunn "coward," all who heard of the incident saw unlimited fun in sight. The set to which Mrs. White belongs does not take the Bed Cross very seriously. In fact, there are math people who do not take the Red Cross very seriously. During the Spanish-American war the Red Cross, which then was under the domina- tion of Clara Barton and a bunch of other Bartons, all of whom drew big salaries for their charitable work, was pretty generally swatted. The trouble with the Red Cros i that it is not oidv too finicky, but entangles itself with so much red tape that it is not free to carry out its mission. 'incidentally, it is under the 'dominion of crank clicks headed by Dr. Ih-vine. regarding w hose ability as a practical philanthropist there is a wide difference of opinion. I heard a well known newspaper man from the Fast speak rather disparaging of the doctor the other day. lie said: 4I)r. Devine may be all right in his way. but he isn't the right way. He is what I should term a scientific philanthropist. If a man went to him in quest of charity the chances are he would strip him and have him examined to see if he was scientifically in need of charity." Now. if Dr. Devine stands bv Dr. Gunn and turns down 31 rs. Inez Shorb White, the Red Cross will receive a very seri- ou black eye in these diggings. For it is in a measure de- I indent upon society faddists for its subsistence. Thus far Mis. White seems to have all the lest'of it. And as the armv jM-ople hate the Red Cross outfit as only army people can hate. it looks as though she will keep on having the best of it. The failure- of the committee of forty to keep it agreement relative to compelling contractors, to pay at least 12.50 a day to the workmen engaged in removing the debris from the sites of the fallen buildings and the public streets is apt to cause no end of trouble. At present, I am tojd, these men are paid only $1.25 a day for their work, which is extremely hard and hazardous. Every time a barrowload of bricks is removed from the site of a building there is no telling .what effect may be produced upon the remaining walls. Last week the collapse of ruins killed one man and severely maimed another, and !efore the remains of the chimneys and brick walU that lit'W make the burned district a place of horror are removed, there will unquestionably be many people killed The laUr eople claim that if the dollar and a quarter rate is maintained that San Francisco will have an extremely difficult time in regaining its old iposition as the ntetroiM-dis of the coast If Huejj a low htandard of wages for lalrci is perpetuated there will ie tio reason for a lalrer staving out here "when htj may go furtlter east, west, north r south and get more money for hi.. toil, ("nlch we can keep the working people here wa cannot hae a great city, for capital alone cannot make a city Uautiful or great.
