CHAINS, BULLETS AND MASKED MEN J. A. Campbell, the Missing Hawaiian Millionaire, Returns. TELLS A LURID TALE. How He Was Decoyed Into a Strange Room, Bound, Shot at and Robbed. A BULLET-HOLE IN HIS HAT. Captain Lees and the Other Detectives Confer and Search for the Suspected Miscreants. James A. Campbell, the largest individual taxpayer on the Hawaiian Islands, an elderly man, said to be worth 16,000,000, returned to the Occidental last night with a story to the effect that he was the victim of a bold conspiracy to rob him of a large sum of money. He left nis hotel last Monday afternoon in company with a man of notorious reputation. Tuesday morning he was to have sailed on the Australia for his home in Honolulu, passage having been already engaged for himself, his wife and two little daughters. As he failed to appear at the pier up to the hour of sailing Mrs. Campbell canceled the tickets and, returning to the hotel, notified Detective Curtin and he and his men began a search for the missing millionaire. Yesterday morning, however, the case was called to the attention of Chief of Detectives Lees. Ali day the force was on the alert for a trace of Campbell or of tLe man with v.horn he was last seen. Neither was found by the detectives or by the police. It was reported that at hve minutes before noon the man who bad left the Occidental with the wealthy planter entered an uptown office ana made certain inquiries. He was gone and left no trace when the detectives arrived. At 12 minutes before 9 o'clock last night th« tall old capitalist walked into the Occidsntal office and went at once to the elevator. He was accompanied by his friend Frod Wundenberg, Postmaster- General of Hawaii during the monarchy. Mr. Wundenberg had only met Mr. Campbell on the sidewalk near the hotel. The two men went at once to the Campbell apartments — a suite of rooms on the second tioor, Montgomery-street front — where the nnxious wife was planning with Attorney C. W. Ashford, a former resident of Honolulu, and "Governor" E. G. Freeth as to the course to be pursued on the morrow. When her husband suddenly appeared upon the scene, well and apparently uninjured after his inexplicable absence of over two days and two nights, Mrs. Campbell tainted, and her condition became so aliirming that no other thing was thought of just then but a doctor. While Mr. Ashford and. Mr. Freeth were hastily summoning a physician and telephoning for Detectives Lees and Curtin Mrs. Campbell revived, and the order for a doctor was countermanded in accordance with a determination to keep everything as quiet as possible. In tlie meantime the husband told the story of his absence. He said that he had gone out by appointment with a friend. Tbey went into a saloon and had a drink. Having withdrawn to a side-room they were in conversation, when a masted man suddenly entered and, covering Campbeil with two pistols, said, ''Give up." He didn't give up. There was a tussle. A shot was tired and a bullet passed through the millionaire's hat. He was overpowered and. to use his own words, "was chained to the floor." He was robbed. Last night he was lioerated and given a nickel for cariare. It all occurred somewhere near the French Hospital. This is in substance what Mr. Campbell told his wife. Then Detectives Lees and Oortin and three other men — including the one who had been detailed in the hotel office for two days — arrived, and a discreet silence became the watchword. After over a half hour's consultation Lees telephoned lengthy orders to his assistants at headquarters and returned to the room while Mr. Ashford hurried away from the hotel to engage a hack as developments showed. Soon after Campbell himself, Curtin and one of his assistants left the hotel by tbe side entrance and started toward Market street. Lees came down shortly and refused absolutely to say anything about the case and walked leisurely up Montgomery street. In the entrance to the Masonic Temple Campbell and the two detectives awaited the chief. He joined them and at the Kearny-street corner of Post street a carriage came quickly up and the whole party was driven rapidly up Post street. It was then 10:30 o'clock. They were going to visit the place where the old gentleman had been held in durance vile. Mr. Campbell came into the Occidental Hotel about 1:30 o'clock this morning. He was escorted by a man, presumably a detective of the Curtin agency. The only answer he gave to the inquiries of tbe reporters was, "Please do not ask me anything now. lam too tired and have not slept lor several nights." Mr. Campbeil walked up the stairs as if bavinar gone through a severe ordeal. His escort repeated his inability to answer any questions, saying. "He can't answer any questions to-night; don't ask him, gentlemen." James A. Can: p bell is a very tall, wiry man of angular build. For his' age he is strong and active, a physical condition inauced by years of hard work. Ir. 1850 he went to Honolulu. He was then a boy of 20, an apprentice to a ships carpenter. He was born in the north of Ireland. His father was Scotch. In time he accumulated some property and continued to ada to his wealth. He owns a Handsome residence on Emma street, in Honolulu, and another at Kapiolani Park. He owns plantations on several of the islands. One of these ranches alone is reputed to furnish an income of $45,000 per annum. In Honolulu he owns business blocks. Altogether, he is the moneyed man of the Republic of Hawaii. The Lahaina plantation which he first owned in partnership with Henry Turton proved to be a stepping-stone to his great wealth. He early made sugar mills with his own hands and with his own hands tended the L'reat iron kettles io which the sugar was boiled, crawling wrapped in wet sacks under the furnaces to repair the flaws. It was his great physical energy and his inherent tenacity that made him a dangerous old man for persons to tackle with intent to torture or intimidate into paying a ransom. About sixteen years ago be waa married to a native Hawaiian, and four girls are the result of that union. Three months ago Mr. Campbell came here with bis family, and recentl ■• the two olc«r girls were put in the college of Notre Dame in San Jose. In a year Mr. Campbell was to return from the islands and take his daughters on a tour of the world. He would not have them educated at Honolulu, as he entertains a violent dislike for the missionary element. He is a royalist himself. He made his fortune under the monarchy, and when the misaionaries, whom he had so often remembered in a handsome way, gave their sympathy to the republic, he became bitterly opposed to them. Some time ago Mr. Campbell, it is said, was a heavy drinker. Then he gave up drink entirely. Since his arrival in this City and during his associations with several companionable tipplers he took kindly to his afternoon toddy once more, and on one or two occasions, it is asserted, he showed signs of tbe times. The presumption is raised that Mr. Campbell may again have returned to his old fondness for liquor; may have been off for a quiet time, and may have seen tit to keeD up a plausable story by engaging the detectives to aid him in carrying out his plan. COLORED SUFFRAGISTS. Much Interest la Being Stirred Up by Mrs. >aomi Anderson's lectures in Oakland. "I am astonished to observe the interest and enthusiasm which the woman suffrage campaign has stirred up among the colored people across the bay." Tims did the Rev. J. E. Edwards, pastor of the African Metnodist Episcopal church of Oakland, pay tribute to the eloquence of Mrs. Naomi Anderson, whose lectures across the bay have proved fully as successful as her course in this City. The pastor, who is always a welcome guest at tue Woman Suffrage Bureau, dropped in there yesterday to cheer the friends of the cause by giving them a glowing yet truthful picture of an important branch of tbe work to which they have pledged their best endeavors. "Mrs. Anderson." pursued the reverend gentleman, "is a wonderful orator. Making no attempt at display, without any straining after effect, she has a way of marshaling solid, stubborn facts before her audience which is most expressive and convincing. On Tuesday the nucleus of a club was formed, the permanent organization of which will be effected on Friday, when the first meeting is to take place at the residence of Mrs. Parker, 813 Myrtle street At laat night's lecture the question of woman suffrage was put to a vote and the immense audience was unanimous in its favor. It looks as though the cause could rely upon Oakland's colored vote." SUFFRAGE VS. SOCIALISM Miss Anthony Addresses a Meeting at the Turk-Street Temple. She Edits a Query Column and Imparts Some Homely Bits of Wisdom. Miss Susan B. Anthony addressed a meeting of socialists at the Turk-street Temple last evening, and at the ciose of her remarks answered a number of queries relating to woman suffrage. It cannot be said that the questions asked tbe noted advocate of her sex an-." 1 , ezceedinely quickwitted lady were burdened with profundity or blazing with brilliancy. Tfcey were unique, however. One asked if woman, more or less religious, would not carry her faith into politics, and io mix church and state in confusion worse confounded. Miss Anthony replied that the influence of any deno initiation or an/ minister of the gospel could not be detrimental to a state founded on the principles of morality, and moreover the influence of a clergyman who was dependent upon his congregation for his sustenance could not exert a very overwhelming influence over the individual members of his flock. He could not have nearly so much influence as the great corporations upon whom so many voters were dependent for their daily bread. Another querist asked if women, who are generally ignorant of the principles of government, could use the ballot lor her own and the improvement of tbe masses. The answer was that the workingmen had been voting in tbis country for a century, and, according to the socialists, their political and economic condition was most deplorable. One doubting Thomas asserted that women were intellectually inferior to men, and also that she bad no knowledge of economic and labor questions. He was told that the first seven years of a boy's life were in the hands of his mother, and during that time she laid the foundation of his future intellect and usefulness in the world. She imparted the same instruction to his sisiers, and their early training was identical. The schools were now graduating three girls to one boy and the higher educational institutions at the ratio of five girls to three boys. Intelligent men always sought the society of women and unless the former were like oysters closed tightly in their own individual shells they certainly would impart some of their intellectual gifts to the latter. In answer to a question why the woman suffragists did not ally themselves to the labor cause Miss Anthony answered that a woman was a cook and baker and always had been, and was in sympathy with their cause, but she could only be ot use to them and their brother workers when she had the ballot. She was not a partisan, only a suffragist. And regarding a woman's alleged economic ignorance, she asked what man could make a dollar go as far as could a woman. One speaker got the floor and uproariously asserted that a woman who could not trust her husband to do hervoting, he, the speaker, would not have for a mother. He quoted Christ, St. Paul and went back into the dust of Egyptian centurien to prove that a woman was at the bottom of the world's bad luck. The chairman apologized for permitting him to talk with the explanation that tbe orator was evidently wound up, and it was bet'fcr to let him run down. A number of other speeches of the same caliber were indulged in, while Miss Anthony sat patiently and listened. MYRIADS OF DOLLARS. The Mint in ThU City Will Make Three-Ouarters of a Million This Month. Silver seems to be coming to the front in Borne sort of a way, at least as far as the United States mint in this City is concerned. Yesterday Superintendent Daggett said that during the present month 750,000 standard silver dollars would be coined in addition to the usual subsidiary coinage. Mr. Daggett has just returned from a brief outing in the northern part of the State and seems to have been much benefited by his temporary escape from the daily grind of official duty. • — ♦ — « Will Sleet to itattfy. A grand Republican ratification meeting will be held at American Hall, corner of Pacific and Leavenworth streets, on Menday evening, August 10. It will be under the auspices of the Forty-second Assembly District McKinley Club. To Meet W. H. Alford. Friday evening the Iroquois Club will receive Hon. W. H. Alford, chairman of tbe Democratic State Central Committee, and Colonel William P. Sullivan, chairman of the general committee of the Democratic party of San Francisco. There are seventy-two places called St. Etlenne in Prance. THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1896. ALL WANT THE PESTHOUSE MOVED San Francisco Improvement Clubs Much Interested. CITY REFORMS IN VIEW. A Little Difference of Opinion Over Committee Work. IN REVIEWING INJUNCTIONS. Partial Victory for the Clubs in Their Fight Against the "Rattler Test." The San Francisco Association of Improvement Clubs met last evening at B'nai B'ritn Hall and discussed matters of particular interest to the City. There was a large attendance, so that the meeting was a thoroughly representative one viewed from all districts. James D. Fhclan presided. C. D. Samuels reported for the law and legislative committee with regard to its work in preventing the >ale of the Gearj"-street franchise, rie related how he and others had secured the injunctions which were served on the Supervisors last Monday stopping proceedings in the franchise matter. He also made a complaint that he had not received all the assistance from the law and legislative committee that he should have. In fact, he claimed that more assistance came from outside parties than from the committee. The report was received, and immediately Secretary I. Schwartz moved that A. P. Van Duzer and George R. Kankin be requested to resign from the committee. This gave rise to a discussion that lasted a long time, and brought out strong opinions on ooth aides. A member protested that it was a very harsh measure, even foolish, and at best showed poor judgment. John Rafferly differed from him and supported Schwartz. Dr. rfalfield, as chairman of the committee, talked against the motion. "If any one was delinquent," said he, "it was the committee on finance in failing to collect funds for this purpose. Mr. Van Duzer met with an accident and could not attend. Not one of these gentlemen fell down. The iegai papers were got out in time and referred to Mr. Samuels." George R. Fletcher, chairman of the finance committee, took issue with Salneld with regard to delinquency on the part of his committee. He had tne necessary money when called upon to defray the legal expenses of the injunction proceedings. A. B. Maguire insisted that everything had been done in the matter; the association should, therefore, be satisfied and the motion ought not to prevail. The secretary was asked to withdraw the motion. "I cannot possibly withdraw my motion," said Schwartz. "The matter would have gone by default if left to the committee. ' There would have been no injunctions." The motion was lost by a large negative vote. What appeared to be a reasonable and satisfactory explanation was made by Van Duzer after the association had stood by him, and the matUr was such, so he said, that no apology was due the meeting from him. "I understand why this was done," he added. *\L can see through the motion of Mr. Schwartz, but I've nothing to say to that. I'm sorry the motion was defeated." With these covert remarks he took his seat and the motion was expunged from the minutes. For the committee on the rattler test for rock Van Duzer reported that through the committee's efforts Richmond and the Sunset District were exempted from the test. He also gave it as his opinion that the amendatory order now before the Supervisors for a license on quarries was unconstitutional. The committee was given a vote of thanks. L. J. Dwyer called for a reoort on the Pesthouse removal. Dr. Rottanzi reported from tne committee on public buildings that he had seen the Mayor, but received no satisfaction. The report was received as progressive. The chair announced that I. Schwartz and A. P. Van Duzer were appointed as delegates to the charter convention. The Fourth-street Improvement Club in a letter stated that Messrs. Sullivan, Ladd, King, Nolan and Hammond had been elected delegates to the association. A Tote of thanks to the Supervisors for appropriating money for the Mission High School was tendered. Dwyer moved that it was the sense of the association that a petition be prepared calling for the removal of the Pesthouse. From the \vest of Castro Street Club a protest was promptly made and a request that the associated clubs would not advocate removal to the Aimshouse tract. "Don't send a curse npon onr digtrict," exclaimea a member of the Fairmount Club. "It is a growing district, thougn it suffers through neglect of the City Fathers. The Pesthouse would ruin it." Salfield wanted the west of Van Ness avenue and Mission street reserved, and A. J. Fritz asked for a petition to the Supervisors that the hospital be not placed on the Aimshouse park. Van Duzer, Dwyer, G. L. Centa and Maguire claimed that it was unfair to make distinctions of districts. Maguire moved to lay on the table, which motion was carried. The following communication was received and referred to the transportation committee: ■ To the San Francisco Anociatcd Improvement Clubs— Gentlemen: At a regular meeting of the West of Castro-street Improvement clubs on Friday evening, July 24, a resolution was passed requesting the San Francisco Associated Improvement Clubs, through its committee on street mil ways, to try to induce the Marketstreet Railway Company to issue transfers from its Sixteenth-street line to the caw of the Potrero and Bay View line and vice-versa, at least during the early morning hours, thus enabling the worUng classes to reach their destination in just the time it takes to go the roundabout way of Third street. Tne following was referred to the public utilities committee: To the President and Members of the San Francisco Association of Improve7nent Clubs — Gentlehen: We beg leave to report that at the last regular meeting of the Western Addition Improvement Club. Held atCoakley's Hall, Geary street, neir Central avenue, on the date lust above written, a resolution was unanimously adopted and it was ordered that the same be forwarded to tbe Board of Supervisors in behalf of extending to the Board of Health the appropriation asked by said board for tbe purpose of aiding them in the carrying out of their good work for the sanitary condition of the City and its inhabitants. The cause for such action was governed by tne following reasons, to wk: First— That the intended appropriation to be extended by the Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors is less than that given twenty years ago when the population and the populated area of the City were hardly more than half what it is to-day. Second— That the appropriation extended is less in proportion for the purposes required than that of any other city in the United States of America of over 100,000 inhabitants. Third— That the appropriation extended to insure the health of 340.000 citizens is less than what is paid annually to the janitors who care for and cleanse the new City Hall. Fourth— That the appropriation extended is a miserable and murderous economy. In a word, this beggarly appropriation sought to be given by the. Finance Committee of the Board of Suuervisors means disease, disgrace and wholesale murder. In view of the facts herein stated, we earnestiy supplicate for the co-operation of The San Francisco Association of Improvement Clubs, and respectfully and sincerely ask for the undivided and individual support of each and every member in behalf of the just claim and urgent appeal clearly made by the Board of Health for a larger allowance than that which is now being scheduled by the Finance Committee of the Board of SuDervisors, as we believe that such expenditure of public money is money expended in a right direction, and that the health of the people is paramount to all other issues, and should receive first consideration. James Bowlan, President. Richard O. Bliss, Secretary. It was decided that the various committees of the association must submit final reDorts at the next meeting. FIRE IN THE FAIRMOUNT Last Evening's Blaze Caused a Damage of Ten Thousand Dollars. Prompt Action of the Fire Department Prevented a Poss.bie Confligration. The Fairmount Hotel, corner of Market and Fell streets, narrowly escaped destruction by fire last evening. Owing to the prompt action of the Fire Department, however, the fire was checked after destroying the stocks of goods contained in three stores occupying the ground floor of the hotel building. At about 8 o'clock flames were seen among the furniture in Wilson & Co.'s storage-rooms. An alarm was sounded from box 76, but before the department arrived the flames had gained considerable headway. The hotel rapidly filled with smoke and the guests gathered together such effects as were handy and hurried into the street. The heat and smoke of the burning furniture was suffocating, and for a time water seemed to have out little effect. Peyser's Emporium, 1706 market street, was soon in flames, but owing to the na- Scene at Last Evening's t-'ire in the Fairmount Hotel Building Wuich Caused a Damage of $10,000. ture of the stock a small stream of water soon extinguished tne tire. H. Levy's tailoring establishment, 1712 Market street, was slightly damaged by smoke and water. Ben True, manager of the Fairmount, places his loss, principally caused by smoke and water, at $1000. Wilson Bros.' loss will amount to about $.5000, which is covered by insurance. Peyser's Emporium was damaged to the extent of $500, which loss is also covered by insurance. The building, which is owned by Maria C. de Laveaga, was damaged to the extent of $3000. It is presumed that a defective electric wire was the cause of the blaze, but Marshul Towe will make a thorough investigation. During the fire a hand-satchel disappeared from the room of Mrs. E. Curtis, a guest at tne hotel. It contained a gold and silver watch, a purse containing $30 in gold, passes lor four to Portland by steamer and a draft for $100. The loss waa reported at the Central Police Station. Laurel Republicans. The Laurel Republican Club will engineer mass-meeting to be held in Coakley Hall, on Geary street, near Central avenue, on Tuesday : evening, August 8.

They Will Bring Suit Against Any One Causing Unwarranted Destruction. SEKGEANT PRICE'S EXPERIENCE One Lessee Admits That Many Buildings in Chinatown Are Public Nuisances. The Chinese are now bearing the weight of another affliction. In fact, it is seldom that the Celestial back is free from a load of trouble. This time they have company. A few of their sympathetic white landlords and associates are also in a peck of trouble. The Board of Health seems to be the cause of it. That board believes that in the fumigation of Chinatown and the summary tearing down of the worst of its dens of disease lies peace and health for San Francisco. What is more the board, seconded by Dr, Lovelace, has about worked itself up to the acting point. All this, though the laying on of violent hands has not the sanction of Chief of Police Crowley, Chief of the Fire Department Sullivan, nor Dr. Fitzgibbon of the board. In order to offset this the white and Chinese owners of property in the region of the almond-eyed will form a protective association so soon as conditions show the need of one. This association will be organized to prevent the razing of the shanties unless under proper condemnation proceedings, and failing in that, to bring suit. All the prominent Chinese merchants have signified their intention of joining the association, and say that if the police, the firemen or anybody else within hearing distance of the American eagle's piercing shriek attempts to tear down a single shanty, there will be a row kicked up that will add to the edification of nations and make somebody's pocket part company with the legal coin of the country. When Sergeant Price made his locally famous raid on the highbinders about four years aero, demolished their property, insulted their divine-faced josses and extinguished their burning punks with the costliest tea produced in the Flowery Kingdom, a movement similar to the present one was started. Sergeant Price was even prosecuted. The other day while engaged in the same line of business for the second time he laughingly remarked that all the prosecutors made out of him was the experience tbey desired. It is on account of the decisions rendered in his case that Dr. Hart and the Board of Health believe suits against them now will result only in heavy lawyers' fees on the side of the property-owners. Some of the owners of Chinese dwellings j profess not to believe that the idea of | forming an association is in progress. Their reasons for this denial are known only to themselves. John Fairrhild, interested in a Chinese tailoring establishment at 813 Washington 1 street, is also the lessee of many structures i in the Chinese quarter. "1 know of no immediate need of such a movement," he said. "The Chiefs of Police and the Fire Department are opposed to any high-handed proceedings, and no one would be fool enough to do it without their sanction. The only thing they can do is to condemn the places. This will produce the effect desired. "I am obliged to admit that there are many houses in Chinatown which should be condemned. They are legion. I would like to see many of them disappear myself. But unless they are condemned they are going to stay there until the elements destroy them or their owners experience a change of heart. Should there be any more attempts to destroy them withont proper proceedings then there may be an association, as there was near being one before, and there will be plenty of suits." 5 Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
