There was no more industrious center in all Oakland than his fourteenth street stand, where scores of Oakland's Influential people went regularly to have their shining done. The people went regularly to Turner's because of the entertainment. Turner was a natural-born vaudeville artist.

Whether or not he talked constantly all day long for the sake or the business or just because he loved to talk is his own Bccret, but It is true that patrons sat and smiled all the while the workman was. busy, and there was always a feeling that a generous tip was in order. chatter of the pioneer Inside-stand man ran along something like this: "Right this way lady" "Give this lady a1, seat" "You can'tvbe too nice to a lady." "Good morning, doctor; a seat Tor the doctor, right with you in a minute; here's the morning paper." "Yes! Bar, that lady has waited all too long (this latter remark to one of his men, -who had reported that lady had come in to inquire about one of her srioes that was lost) and then, morning liMiy! you havo waited too long. Here's an order for a new pair of shoes. You get a pair that suits you, it was all our fault and I thank you for waiting.

Go right and get the new shoes, I have arranged for it," and remarks to his men. one, just returning leisurely from lunch shop full of patrons "Say! what's the matter with vou. you think 'cause you got a iunch under your belt nobody else wants to eat: get your coat off and get busv.

George Turner was an unusual man, twenty years ago an ordinary janitor in a barber shop. He. rented a store, started the first "inside" bootblack stand in Oakland and among his patrons were the mest prominent men and women of Oakland.

Some of them had three or four cMildrejr by previous marriages. Running down smugglers and otl.ier criminals by an aerial police force, which will keep vigilance froni the sky, is one of the possibilities for Oakland, if a project shortly to be taken up by the aviation committee of the Chamber of Commerce is carried into effect.

In an effort to give this section of California better protection from crime It is likely, according to the mem bers of the committee, that the city, state and federal authorities will be urged to establish an aerial police patrol center in" Oakland. The first start In that direction was made today, wlien Lieutenant Colonel S. Herbert deputy police commisisoner of New York, flew from the I)urant aviation field over Oakland and surrounding country to advise V. F. Morse, commissioner of public health and safety, as to the best means to give Oakland air protection.

The criminal detection possibilities of the airplane have only recently come to be recognized locally, though the federal government has been working some time on ylans to police the air. Sidney B. Veit, of the "round-the-world air derby commission, who viewed Oakland's air fields last Saturday under the guidance of the CViamber of Commerce, pointed out; a number of ways In which, aeroplanes could be used by daring criminals. Among them were: Smuggling countraband from Mexico or Canada, landing the smuggled goods in an isolated spot and flying out of the country before capture could be effected. Swooping down on wealthy persons or their children and kidnaping them by air for ransom.

Raiding isolated country estates or ranches, robbing them and flying away before assistance can be summoned. Veis pointed out that California's situation, close to Mexico, would be productive of International complications In the event of such criminal raids by the air, as the fliers could find sanctuary in the sOullhern republic. 'Consequently, he was particularly urgent that air policing be established here-1 Uphold Constitution, Is Association's Plan Articles of Incorporation for the American Commons-Allies Memorial Association, the organization formed at Dr. L.

Ratter up! By HENRY Ii. PARREL, United IVess Sports Editor. NEy YORK, Nov. 5. -As near as I can dope it out, women's hat-dress this winter is going to run the gamut fro ma riot to a pis 0 knockout.

And as for colors, tlu certainly are as wild as a- bnn southpaw. The price tags resemble nothing so much us Willie Hoppe's, high run in a billiard tournament. There was one id that sure was reminiscent 0 the home plate. It was five-cornered, dust cplored and had a little stick-up -jigger on the back that looked just like Umpire Bob Kigler's whisk broom. Of.

course, they didn't call it that, but there vas also one that was a real grandstand model. It had a concrete colored rim with an overhanging roof and a bunch of birdneat effects under' the eaves. "Isn't this one just too cute?" gurgled a Mary Plckford model, as she slapped a peaked cap like the Athletics used to her head, then pulled it over one eye just as though she; were going out to play the sun field. P'or the golf incurables there was one model with a mast affair in the center like a niblick sticking up over a bunker with a lot. of sod hanging to it.

There were -some others with a fewbladeg of-grass sticking up around the edge that made a fellow think of the, eighteenth hole. The favorite color, seems to be a brown just jike the derby Garry Herrmann sprang on the world, series. But there are other hues, from a sort of auto-tire gray to an auctioneer's red flag with all intermediate shades. Veils are in as great a variety as hats. Some have a wide screen like a catcher's mask; some have a finer mesh like a ball protector, while others look like a slice of tennis net.

After giving the whole show the once over, 1 agreed that women's hats this winter will be sporty but It seemed a shame that tho; 'sportiest function they will prob- ably grace will be a tea fight or a tango rassle. Oregon Rancher Held Guilty of Murder EUGENE, Nov. 6. The jury in, the case of the- state against Martin Clark, McKenzle river rancher, accused of the murder of Charles L. Taylor, road supervisor at McKenzie bridge, late last night returned a verdict of guilty of murder in the second degree, after having been out a little less than five hours.

The trial lasted eight days and attracted a great dijal of attention owing to the prominence of the man who Clark was accused of killing. II r.n 1 Ml' i-5i t-zzz- TO BE LISTED Has the registrar of minors been to your house yet? He or maybe, she will bo there sooner or later. The last legislature passed an act requiring a registration of all males born since November 1, 1898, and all females since 1 November 1, 1901 The registrars of minors in every county and city of the state are after these figures. In some cases the registrars ex- Mject to have more, or less difficulty. especially in the cases of foreign families where the purpose of the us is not understood.

Because of this possibility, Will C. Wood, su perintendent of public instruction, has made a general request for cooperation with the registrars. The registrars, appointed by 'the school authorities, are to visit every home and secure tie following information: The name of the family; the nativity (country of birth) of the father, the mother, and the minor children; the sex of the minor children the race; date of birth-month, date, year; the age at lastj' birthday the occupation, if the minor is working; the name of the school which the minor attends," if he is attending school; the name of the employer, if he is working; the address of the school, if he is attending a private 'school; the address of the if he Is working; the grade he is in school; the statement as to whether the minor is crippled, blind, deaf or dumb. The purpose is 'to assist in giving better educationad opportunities to those who are employed, and also to those who, because of one or more of the afflictions mentioned above, are unable to secure an education in the, regular schools provided for their more fortunate By being prepared to give this information to the registrar when he or she calls, a service is rendered to the school authorities, and at the same time the work is made easier for the registrar. Soldiers' University For Coast Planned A soldiers' university for all enlisted men in the Northern California district Is the governments, latest educational Study of" the scheme has been made by officers of the western department.

The location will "be at the Presidio and as a starter a large part of an initial allowance of $45,000 made for educational work in this district will be devoted to the university.

It Is assumed that this is the beginning of the promised fight. The complaint sets out the contention that the voters never authorized the construction of the Hetch Hetchy dam, nor the vast power 'project now being developed. The bonds, ft says, were voted for the jrroject of bringing sixty million gallons of water daily ihto the city.

The water was to be stored in Lake Klcanor and then carried by gravity to the Altamont hills, over which-it Vas to- be pumped by power to be generated from the water aqueduct, Jhe whole plan involving only some J7.000.000 In the Sierras, It is Maimed. The original cost of the ipe line was estimated at and the plans called for expenditure for a distributing system. The complaint alleges that this Simple plan has been entirely abandoned In favor of a project that will cost 1150,000,000 at least, and which it claims the city can never finance. 3 charges thajt it is 'evident from the plans and purposes of the board rf supervisors that it is not intended use the Hetch Hetchy development in competition with the Spring Valley, buc to make it merely an adjunct of the latter for the purpose Of forcing the latter's purchase by jhc city."
