How Captain Harry F. llelhi, well known 'character of tKrii days tn the' ports of San Francisco, and! So attle, recently stond off a company Pf Chinese pirates, who attempted to capture the river steamer cotnj mantled by Helm on the Yanjttpj river, vt&tt related y. sterday by Wlf-., liam J.' Forbes, Importer of Shang-liei, who la in Kan Francisco on a fcusiness Jrlp. ''ForbeSviiiiid: . "Helm had been warned 'that he would probably be hekl up by Chi-j npBp pirates who are infesting the waterways of China ' and who are l carrying their depredations without interference of any kind, 'liis ves sel was bonrded by a p;rate,.riw early In the morntnsr, and Captain Holm .was ordered to stand aside hile the plrau-s transferred hig nargo to their vessel. Helm replied by knocking the Chinese captain over the Hide of - the, vessel, and with drawn revolver1 cleared h.is vesne.1 of ' the pirates, who offere'd no, -resistance"; T 'L : v J-"Helm's exploit -vks witixjss'ed - by three American missionaries " and! their wives, who were passengers on the vessel." ' Forbes says that piracy .in China has assumed greater " proportions than ever before in the htefory of the celestial empire. This, he Bays, .is a result of the state of lawlessness now . existing throughout China and of the fact that there is no centralized rovernment. Forbes said that in most cases the pirates are a lot of miserable cowards, who can.be put to flight by actions of a determined .. man, as in the case of Captain Helm. ment in Chinij is constituted by a coterie of provincial governors, who maintain themselves in power by a number of banded soldiers, who are permitted to loot and steal." ' Forbes related how recently a ..Manchurian governor made a trip to Peking, deposed the government and installed a new administration which was more to his taste. Forbes says that the various- military gov- pernors of China now have , close to one million men under arms,whom they use solely to carry out their Individual ambitions.

Then the road .went winding around through Blair's jrrainfiekls, which were on both sides of the tract. Part way up, the car would stop .ani-put on extra horsesas it was quite a heavy grade uphill from mere on. The park occupied a large tract of land north of Morajja road, now called Moruga avenue, between this road and the cemetery end easterly from what is now' known as Bonita avenue. This was at the entrance of Hays' Canyon, in a large woods of gum trees." Between the park and the cemetery was a hfch board fence. On this fence thire w as a sign, some-thingjlke thl:"Kpep Out."

About fifteen or twenty-peanuts, and such peanuts: ' jrtie park was a very popular place for Sunday school aud private picnics, for t was a very orderly place.

The possible effort- o North Oakland citizens to induce the Hoard of Education to build the University High School ofnood will meet with firm opposition from' Charles Vf. Dickey, the supervising architect, according to announcement by jthe.of-ffebtl. , ... ' At a reent meeting of the Boarl of Education tWe suggestion was made, by representatives of the Santa Fe Improvement Association that the building should be constructed of wood In orUer to save' htbney and thereby make it possible to include a number of important features which it now appears may have to be left out. . roort mTwrwnxT. "The people wilt never stand for this," "declared Dickey. "A J500;000 building constructed, of wood would be the worst investment a city could possibly make. The . fire hazard to life would not be so- great, as the building would be provided with exits ample to allow for the escape. of all the inmates. The point is, however, ffrat the entire investment would bo. lost in case of a fire, because there is not enough fire apparatus in this part of ther country to. extinguish a stiff blaze in such a building. "Buildings of this size-of wood at-e prohibited in nearly all cities, notably San Francisco. Our ordinance does not cover the matter. EXAGGERATED CI AIM. 'The argument that the wooden construction would 6ave 20 or 25 per cent Is a mistake. Not more than seven per, cent could i be saved In wood construction.. , "The building, according to the present plans, will have concrete walls for the two story portion with a roof of, wood, and wooden construction for the smaller one-story portions. It will be the second largest school in the whole program." Dickey explained that because of the lajck of funds it may be necessary to omit the shop unit, the cafeteria, and. possibly the gymnasium. It was with the idea. of saving money enough to include these items that the suggestion was made to build the schoot of wood. Dickey said wooden construction would notifUi 'suf fl-clent saving to bring this about. Police Called to Handle Sale Crowd . The results to be derived from newspaper advertising are being demonstrated in the sale now being conducted at the ' Mesmer-Smith Shoe Company on Thirteenth street. The sale is under the supervision of Fr;k Stefan, sales manager of T. 1C. Kelly Company of Minneapolis. Last Tuesday's paper contained a full-page advertisement giving; details of. the sale, and so great' was the crowd at the store entrance Wednesday morning. that it was necessary to call policemen to handle them. It was necessary to repeatedly close the doors aa the crowds Inside the store became greater. After supplying, the , wants of purchasers they were diverted through the basement and gained an exit by the front elevator., The sale will continue for some -time.
