Courtney Ford, a well known club-man of San Francisco, who acted as sponsor for Vogt, former State Senator E.- K. Taylor, and several others. • After taking the cath which gave right to the title of American citizen, Vogt declared that his one regret was that he had not become a cltiien years ago. Judge Melvin remarked thatjwhen Emperor William heard of the action of thie well known composer he' would probably send a fleet of warships . to take Vogt back to Germany. Theodor Vogt Is one of the best known composers on the Pacific Coast, among the most famous of his productions being "The Quest of the Gorgon." which was written- for the high jinks of the Bohemian Club a year ago; the opera.

SERIOUSLY INJURED BT. A BOX CAR. Agnes Gilligan Under v Gar With Wheels An Inch Away. SAN MATEO, Sept. 12. — Alleged carelessness on the part of the railroad gateman, in not lowering the gates while a freight train was switching In the yards, is given as the cause of an accident last evening In which Miss Agnes Gilligan, a ! teacher In the public schools sustained injuries that may prove fatal. Miss Gilligan was knocked down by a box car and a large iron rod, pierced her side, tearing a .hole several inches long in her abdomen. When the car was stopped, the wheel had already pinched her flesh and many eye witnesses assert that had the car gone 'a foot further she would have been cut in two. . . Miss Gilligan was returning home shortly after dark. When, vas both gates .'at the track ..were open, it. never occurred to -her that there was an engine on the end of the long line of box cars standing on the sidetrack. When she was In- the .center of the track the engine bumped into the cars with terrific, force. • The car only kicked back about five feet and to this fact Miss Gilligan oweY her life. M. J. Lyons was the first to go to her aid and /when he attempted to drag her from beneath the car he* discovered that her dresses were tightly fastened under the wheel and -It became necessary to call to the engineer to move his train before the woman could be released. Miss Gilligan has been a teacher In the public schools here for the last eight years. "... In" the Voting contest now pending for the most popular teacher In San Mateo County, she has taken the lead from the start and at the last counting of; the ballots 4 she stood .over 4000 votes ahead of .any other teacher on the list. - " \u25a0 HUSBAND CLUBS A MASHER.

' \u25a0\u25a0•'\u25a0»\u25a0 A list of claims passed upon by the. judicial committee wasvreceived and a resolution to pay them as soon as subscriptions from Eastern cities werereceived was passed. 'As this was unsatisfactory to the Judicial committee. ,„_ the executive committee finally decided to pay immediately all claim* designated by the Judicial committee as demanding immediate settlement. As, a majority of the claims were passed!! by the old finance committee, it is probable that a great percentage of themn will be paid atonce.
