Twice, one of the guards says, the man returned the fire. Then the warehouse burst into flames anj the attention of every man at the wharf was needed. -With the proof bf ah attempt at Incendiarism in thla instance belief has" grown that the explosion and $50,000 fire of a few days ago were occasioned in tho -same manner. None of the coriipany officials, however, will say definitely that this Is his belief. Of yesterday's fire C. H. Stamnv superintendent nf the. plant, said: MAX FIRia OX BY .WATCHMAN. "A boat was seen loitering in the vicinity of the wharf and a, man was seen to leave the warehouse and get into the boat TheVnan was fired on by our special watchmen.

"It was shown to be an attempt to burn the wharf. Two cases of gasoline had been broken open and four cans had been punctured and apparently the contents had been poured over the floor and the cases that are stored In the warehouse. A charred rag was found among the cases that are stored In the warehouse, it had evidently . been lighted and-thrown there. "There were about ten shots fired by the guards and one of the guards claims that the man shot" twice at him before escaping into the boat." 1 AHHLa 1 LU IN BOOZE PROBE Filnr Comedian Is Accused of Having Liquor in His Pos- ses?ion At Time of Lahor!

Plans for a huge, floating cantilever type of bridge to span the bay between Sa;i Francisco and Oakland and denned for the exclusive use " of pedestrians and motor-propelled and horse-drawn vehicles only were to Colonel Herbert enstneer, at a -hay bridge hearing In progress in San Francis. -o. The plans and accompanying data were submitted to the bridge committee of the Oakland Chamber of Commerce yesterday. The committee was so Impressed by the plans thit they recommended they be preente-d to Colonel Peaky ne at today's hearing- for serious consideration. -r The plan were prepared by engl- . neers of the Union Construction Compsny In Oakland and incorporate several ideas that are distinctly novel. The route selected by W. P. Rood and J. D. Baker, tho engineers for the Union - company, runs from Hunters' Point to a point on the Ala- , nieda naval-base sueT" The cost is estimated at $7. 750. POO and rhe time- required to complete it about a year and a half. VEHICULAR TRAFFIC AND PEDESTRIANS. The floating bridge is intended for tho use of vehicular traffic and pedestrians only. Engineers Roop and Baker; therefore, hae suggested in their plans the development of a central railroad terminal on Goat Island along the lines of tne jayne plan. ihia. suggestion anticipates that some day the Fowler bridge from the Island to Te.legraph Hill in San Frapclseo may become a reality and thus solve the problem of quick transportation for con-mu ersj. The floating bridge will be made up of sections 320 feet long, with an understrueture of reinforced concrete. Each cantilever will have two such understructures, with four watertight, airchambers each. On these catamarans js a steel superstructure, carrying a 40-foot roadway for vehicles and two six-foot passageway for pedestrians. Each of the floating cantilevers is connected to the next one with a steel pin Joint, and it is proposed that reinforced concrete piers be erected at frequent intervals. These piers will support none of the weighs of the bridge, but will be merely tor tha purpose of preventing sldcswings.- These piers will be anchored by stteel catdes attached to concrete blocks. ' CONCRETE TRESTLE 450 FEET LONG. At tho San Francisco end ther will he 'a . 440-foot drawbridge two 200-foot openings for the accommodation of shipping. From the drawbridge to the San Francisco shore will be a concrete trestle S50 feet long. Roop and Baker have adopted two alternate routes into San Francisco and three into Oakland. One of the San Francisco routes goes by w;uy of the north side of Hunter' Point, terminating at Fourth and Market streets. The other runs jsilong the south sidj- of the point, terminating at the San .Francisco city hall. The respective lengths of these routes are 9000 and 11,000 yards. - 1 . , The entrances Into Oakland are by way .of theprescnt Webster street bridge, at the-Toot of Washington street or Vie foot, of Market street. In the last two instances the Union Construction Company engineers point out that additional, bridges over the inner harbor wilt ba necessary and they add from $21)0,000 to $1,000,000 to their -estimates for that purpose. The estimated cost of $7,750,000 for the floating bridge, moreover, does not laclude the cost-of approaches or streft improvements. In the written argument presented to Colonel Deakyne, Roop and Baker say: PIER EXTENSION TO GOAT ISLAND. "It is'proposed that the Son Francisco bay crossing shall be developed in successive stages, the-first of which is a highway bridge. This leaves the way open for a second stage, in which the Key Route pier is extended to a union passenger terminal on Goat Island. "As a possible continuadon into a third- stage the Fowler pjan for a great cantilever bridge from "Goat . island to Telegraph hill may ultimately become feasible. '-"The, primary consideration In this project is co-ordination with water traffic for the service of the industrial und commercial requirements of the bay district. It is not intended artificially to alter the continental position enjoyed by Oakland-any further than has already been dope by the Dumbarton bridge. - "The ' highway bridge provides Immediately the new highway outlet for San Francisco-, the predsuig need of which has revir,l th discussions of proposals fo?Wldging the bay. It also makes direct communication between the mainland and the industrial districts In the Mission, the potrero and Islala Creek."
