PARENTS TO SUE JUSTICT LARUE SEQUEL OF 'ARREST OF BOYS WHO PAID NO FARES. Oakland Office San Francisco Call. 90S Broadway, June 7. Within the next few days Justice Larue will be made defendant in three suits for the recovery of (299 in each case for false imprisonment. The suits will be filed by C. E. Kinard, as attorney for the parents of John Souza, Jesse Alameda and M. Medierqs, the boys who on May 13 last were arrested at Sather station on charges of evading the payment of faros while they were riding in an empty boxcar, bent on a trip to San Leandro to •'■ asi upon ripe cherries. The boys, each aged about 12 years, were haled Into Justice Larue's court, pleaded guilty while wholly Ignorant of the import of their so doing and were each sentenced to three days' imprisonment in the County Jail. They served their time, and now their parents declare the tables will be turned. Incidentally, the new method employed by Constables in their efforts to avoid "the rule that precludes fees for arrests without a warrant was brought out in bold relief by Kinard's investigations. Constables, it appears, now supply themselves, with a small batch of "John Doe" and '■Richard Roe" warrants each clay, making them fit any case that might'"turn up in their bailiwick during the day. Then after an arrest is made and the prisoner haled to court, his name is added to the fictitious name as an alias. "In the case of the three boys arrested for evading their fare," said Kinard today, "the warrants were made out in fictitious names. The warrants were first dated May 8. This was subsequently scratched and May 12 inserted, and on these the boys were arrested. Later, in court, their names were allased. But don't forget the arrests were really made on May 13." The suits for false imprisonment, however, will be based on section 9 of chapter 3 of the statutes of 1876, which provides: "Every person who shall fraudulently evade or attempt to evade the payment of his fare for traveling on any railroad shall be fined not less than five nor more than twenty dollars." Plainly, there is no alternative provided for imprisoning offenders of the fareevading stripe, and the parents of the three boys claim therefore that ' Justice Larue falsely Imprisoned their children, wherefore they will ask damages. ■ » ■ PRINCE PONIATOWSKI IS NOT IN A HURRY BLUE LAKE SCHEME TO COST MANY MILLIONS. Oakland Office San Francisco <'all. 908 Broadway, June 7. Prince Poniatowskl is not yet ready to; submit to Oakland bis proposition to pipe! water from Blue Lakes. Several weeks ago Mr. Cuvellier Introduced a resolution ng for a report on certain methods nging water to the city limits, the Bition being that the municipality : io,,k to the distributing system. Mr. Cuvellier stated I'ririo Ponlatowakl and associates were prepared to ■ -.tit-, some such project, and the ommitt<> was Instructed to make an investigation. A few days ago some members of the committee went to Ban Francisco to Bee the Pllnce and Director Pierce of the Blue Lakes Company, but it waa discovered that the Investigation was rather premature. The Prince stated that no ultimate an be had at this time, but he sted that water might possibly he . hi here at an outlay of five or six million dollars. He said further that it >urse pay to bring water to this city exri-pt they could make cony. ith many other cities en route d the bay to Justify such a large outla In a few weeks' time the Prince has promised to supply matter to the com• upon which they can base a reel the Council. When Mr. Cuvellier first brought the, rnattt-r up Mayor Snow stated that the iry to bring Blue Lakes water to Oakland would be $17.iXm),000. but those figures were compiled a method has been found by which they can be materially reduced.

THE SAN FTCANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1899. PRETTY WIDOW TELLS HOW SHE WAS FLEECED Her Ardent Employer Proposed a Ride. ROMANCE OF THE SPRINGS ARLINGTON GREATLY FEARED ANOTHER MAN. Talked of Great Wealth and of Rich Furniture to Mrs. Minnie Smith and Then Stole Her Purse. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 90S Broadway, June 7. Mr*. Minnie M. Smith, an attractive young widow, told Judge Qulnn this afternoon of a very interesting trin she took with a reputed wealthy miner to Piedmont Springs a few weeks ago. The reputed wealthy miner. Mr. Arlington, alias Mr. Hobbman, alias several other ! names, sat in court while the little widow | told how he had played a very smooth confidence game. Some time in April Mrs. Smith was look; ing for employment. Through a friend, | Mrs. Henn, who resides at the Hotel : Mcrritt. she was Introduced to Mr. Arlington. He is a fatherly looking old gentle| man, with hair almost white, but with ; none of that vim and attractiveness which ; might be supposed to endear him to I bright women. Yet this reputed wealthy miner has a record of which he ought not j to be proud. He has seen the Inside of ; the Alaineda County Jail, is not unacquainted with the interior of San Quentin, ' and the detectives assert that he is known elsewhere. In each instance the trouble was caused by his confidential dealings with a woman. His latest conquest and probable defeat were told with much detail and very earnestly by Mrs. Smith. "After 1 had been introduced to Mr. \ Arlington and he had been informed by , Mrs. Henn that 1 was looking for a situation, he rather startled me by his first remark. He said: 'I am a very plainspoken man. Now. let us understand each other at once. Is there any man in this case?' I told him there certainly was not; that I always acted for myself. Then if | there is no man in it,' he said, 'we will : talk business.' He told me that he had a daughter whose welfare must be the most important duty of any housekeeper he , might employ. He said he was going to furnish a house and had been recommendled to look at a flat on Hobart street. He suggested that I go with him to see the I place and help him to arrange for fur, nishing It. Money .was no object with i him. and he wanted everything nice and i convenient, both for himself and his housekeeper and daughter. We went to the house, and after satisfying ourselves that it would be very convenient we walked several blocks, when Mr. Arlington mentioned that I must be tired and that It I would be better to ride. An electric car j was passing, and after we boarded it he told me that he was not feeling very bright and that if I had no objection we would take a ride to Piedmont Springs. I agreed to go, and as soon as we arrived he saw some one to whom he wished to speak, and left me on a bench for a few minutes, sending me a glass of lemonade. When he returned he threw a bag of pea! nuts in my lap. Then he asked me if 1 ; could change $20 for him. I told him that j I could not, as 1 had not that much , change. As soon as I opened my purse ihe said, 'I will take care of that.' I pro: tested, but he said, 'I'll pay for anything that we spend out of it and will settle with you.' I made a vigorous protest, and he expressed great surprise that I should ibe auspicious of an honorable man. He said that compared to his wealth all I ', might have would be but a drop in the bucket. I demanded of him that he give ; me my purse back, but he would not do so." At this point the widow's attorneys promptly cut off her story, and when Arlington's attorneys wanted to know what transpired after the purse-snatching they were also shut off by the rules of ■ cross-examination. In several ways Attorney Aldrich wanted to know what transpired between the time her money was taken from her at the springs and the I time she swore to the warrant for the arrest of Arlington. They could make no headway against the court's rulings and this part of the mystery was not divulged. Mrs. Smith said the purse contained $214 85. of which $20") was In greenbacks. Mrs. Henn. who introduced the widow to the alleged wealthy miner, was to have been the next witness for the people, but I she did not appear and the trial of the case went over for a week. Arlington's attorneys had asked Mrs, i Smith the question, "Do you see anybody i in the courtroom that was at the springs when the incident happened?" and she replied "No." Her attorney had her recalled to ask her if she had riot seen one man In the courtroom at the springs, to which she replied, shaking her fist at Arlington "Yes, certainly; I saw that grayhaired man there, of course." AN ANGRY FATHER THREATENS KEATING YOUNG MISS BARNETT IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE. Oakland Office San Franctsro Call, 908 Broadway, June 7. Somewhat of a mystery hangs over a fraras that occurred at the Receiving: Hospital entrance la«t night. Isaac Barnett acknowledged to-night that he had bei n mixed up with W. J. Keating, warden of the insane, and said it was all over hit; daughter, but he declined to say anything further. Keating also declines to discuss the matter. Matron McDonald of the hospital heard the whole affair and gives the following version «f it: "It was the most disgraceful affair I ever witnessed at the hospital. I was busy In the kitchen, when through the window I 'saw an elderly man, Isaac BarneH. waU to the sid« entrance lo the hospital. Mr. Keating came to the door and Mr. Barnett shouted to him that he was the man iie was looking for. 'You have ruined my daughter,' said Mr. Barnett, at the sam.: time applying ;i vile epithet and mt. ring a vile oath." Then the two men went at each Other hammer and longs, and soon Mr. Barnett's son came running over from across the street to take his father's part. Then the girl, who is about 16 years old. came over, too, and appeared to take Mr. K eating's part, for the brother grabbed her by the hair and, nulling her away, slapped her. Just then Mr. Borchert came. hurrying out of the hospital and stood off young Barnett. In the meantime a great .'•rowd gathered on the sidewalk and in the. street Young Barnett tried to blow his i»oriee whistle, but Borchert prevented him. Later, after the row was all over, ( )flli-er Powers came upon the scene, but hi ai ■! -rsts were made. "I hoard the girl say that she would kill herself as she tearfully left the premises."

OAKLAND, June 7.— D. H. Thompson this afternoon filed suit in the Superior Court against D. Burns, executor of the estate of Christopher Streitberger, deceased, for the recovery of $1000 for electrl' treatment rendered Streitberger dur- Ing two j'ears prior to his death, In July, 1898; also $500 for meals and refreshments furnished and $f>oo for travel to and from the Hammam Baths. San Francisco, and administering baths. The claim was finally rejected by the executor on March 28. 18S9, and Thompson asks judgment for $2000 with interest at 7 per cent per annum from that time. Streltberger's estate was appraised at over $2'X),000. CONGRESSMAN KAHN BACK FROM WICHITA WAS DELEGATE TO THE TRANSMISSISSSIPPI CONGRESS. Congressman Julius 8. Kahn returned to this city yesterday from Wichita. Kana., where he haa been in attendance sJt the Transmississippi Congress. Mr. Kahn represented the local Chamber of Commerce at and was prominent in the deliberations of the convention. He distinguished himself especially in his advocacy of legislation favorable to American ships being manned by American seamen. When in the course of a speech he referred to the battleships now being built in the United States and mentioned the Oregon, the whole convention rose to a man and cheered for several minutes. Mr. Kahn was also called upon to respond to the addresses of welcome of Governor William P. Stanley of Kansas, who presided at the gathering, and that of Mayor Ross, Mayor of Wichita. In his answer he spoke of the great progress made In the western half of the country during the past half century, saying that the history of California was the history of the transmississippi States. "The convention was attended by nearly 400 delegates," said Mr. Kahn when seen last evening. "Subjects of great importance to the nation were discussed and resolutions favorable to the irrigation law, merchant marine, beet sugar Industry, the Isthmian canal and other matters of general interest were passed. Condemnatory resolutions were also passed against coolie contract labor. Beneficial results are certain to be obtained by the work of the congress just closed. We were treated royally and the visit will always be a pleasurable recollection to me." ■ ♦ ■ E. W. SPAULDING IS TRACED TO LOS ANGELES The Defaulting Insurance Cashier Still Undiscovered — Belief That He Has Gone South. Since E. W. Spaulding. assistant cashier of the Fireman's Fund Insurance Comi pany, absconded the officers of the company here have made diligent Inquiry to ascertain his whereabouts. They are anxious to learn what use he made of the sum of $7500 which represented the amount of his shortage. Detectives engaged by the company traced the absconding cashier from this ' city to Los Angeles, but lost the trail at : the latter place and have not been able ! to find It. Men with whom Spaulding was ! well acquainted saw him on the owl train !en route to Los Angeles. Spaulding said 'to one of the men with whom lie con! \ ersej on the train that he was going ! sr-uth on business for the Fireman's Fund ' ar.d would be In Los Angeles for several days. It is surmised that Spaulding con-1 tniued his Journey south, but the detectives have no trace of his movements i after he arrived In Los Angeles. , H is the belief In the office of the company that Spaulding took the money to ■ help a friend out of trouble and when the person assisted failed to keep a promise o' payment the assistant cashier was bqi zed from time to time for the advancement of the additional sum in the nope that the whole amount might be recovered in the end. 1 !i- sum of $7500 13 tlie exact amount of the embezzlement.

Very impressive were the religious ex- I ercises held last night at St. Mary's Cathedral under the auspices of the Catholic Truth Society. The exercises Included the Biniging of the hymns "Venl Creator " "Tantum Ergo" and "Te Deum." Solemn benediction was also celebrated. Father Philip O'Ryan preached an interesting sermon on the subject, • '.'The Church and the Bible." In the course of his remarks he said: The Bible is not merely the work of th« j church, but the work of God himself, who Ini spired Its writings. There are three things j requisite for a clear conception of the holy scripture?, namely: That the Holy Ghost Inspired and moved the writers to give utterance to the truths therm contained, He suggested the things that were written and he preserved the writers themselves from error. To properly understand the Bible a divine Interpreter Is necessary, and we have such an Interpreter In the Catholic Church, who has defended the writings from the attacks of it's enemies. The church Is the official authority of the Bible and she speaks Infallibly when once she has spoken. She teaches what' is ! scripture and what Is not,' and It Is only through her that we can arrive at a Just coni elusion regarding the sacred book. Possible Ptomaine Poisoning. Oracle Gordon, 2! yean of age, died in the lodging-houpo at 17A Sixth street la-st night under conditions which indicate ptomaine poisoning:. Miss Gordon, accompanied by her mother, took dinner in a Stockton street restaurant Tuesday : night, and amiins other things ate a dish i of mussels. On her return home she was I taken violently ill. Dr. Arlington, who was immediately called in. diagnosed the case as poisoning, and treated his patient ! for It until 9:30 last night, when she died.

Three Burglars Captured. Alfred Fenelius. Harry Sammi and Al?|on Severance, three young men ranging rom 17 to 19 years of age, are behind the prison bars of the Seventeenth-street station charged with burglary- The capture of the trio was one of considerable merit on the part of Officer T. J. Connei] of Captain Glllin's division, who while riding on a Mission-street car yesterday afternoon saw the three men driving an express wagon laden with furniture along the street. He recognized them as being thieves, and dropped off the car and followed them along, when he met Officer McShane and Imparted to him his suspicion that the property in the wagon was stolen. The officers followed after until the wagon was halted in front of a furniture store on Sixth street, where the goods were removed. Sufficient time was given for the consummation of a sale, when the officers entered the store and questioned the three men as to where they got the furniture, which consisted of three tables and a dozen chairs, such as are used in restaurants. The answers given were unsatisfactory, and the men were placed undtr arrest. It was learned that the whole consignment was disposed of for $5. and was stolen from First ;ivenue and Carl street, Sunset Valley, a place which had been used as a restaurant for railroad hands until recently. The trio broke into the place and carried off the goods. The horst- and wagon they had hired, stating that they wanted it for the purpose of hauling some wood. GIVEN KNOCKOUT DROPS. Peter Ivanoff Causes the Arrest of Frank Harrington. . Frank Harrington, well known in the tenderloin, was arrested on Market street last night on complaint of Peter Ivanoff, agent of the Vladivostok Trading Company, and locked in the tanks at the City Prison. His name was placed In the small book and he will probably be charged today. Ivanoff arrived from Vladivostok about ten days ago on business and on Monday night met Harrington. The latter made himself very agreeable and the pair had several drinks together. The rest Is mostly conjecture, but Ivanoff claims Harrington put knock-out drops in his beer and relieved him of $75. Last night Ivanoff visited the Olympia in company with a friend and a few minutes after he had taken his seat Harrington entered and t'">k a seat beside him. Ivanoff recognizeH his <iuondam acquaintance and so informed his friend. The latter advised that he have Harrington arrested, and when the hitter leff the place they followed. Just as Harrington was passing in front of the Midway Plaisance Ivanoff and his friend accosted a policeman and had the man placed under arrest. At the City Prison Harrington gave the name of F. Williams. He denied the story told by the young Russian, but Captain Spillane ordered him locked up. TO STOP THE FEUDS. Men Who Sell Toy Pistols to Boy- Bandits on Telegraph Hill to Be Arrested. Following the raid upon the boy bandits on Telegraph Hill Tuesday by the police, during which a number of toy pistols were captured, warrants were obtained yesterday by Sergeant Christiansen for the arrest of James Mearns. 1500 Powell street; C. A. Janke. I^l3 Powell street, and '"John Doe," another keeper of a variety store, for violating the law in selling toy pistols to boys. William Taylor, a salesman in Shreve's gun Btore on Kearny street, who was arrested Tuesday night for a similar offense, was yesterday fined $L'O by Judge Graham. The shooting of the boy Paul Baldaraceo by Tommy Crofton last Sunday first drew the attention of the police to the nuisance and Tuesday night Tony Barbini.-a boy living at 429 Union street, was shot in the arm by John Flynn, another boy. The boys form themselves into opposing armies of bands, Irish on the one side- and Italians on the other, and fire their toy pistols sometimes with disastrous results. The police are determine,] to exterminate the nuisance, ami the arrest of the dealers who sell tin toy pistols is the first step in that direction. Recommended Suicide. Rev. Jay William Hudson of Santa Rosa addressed Liberty Branch of the Socialist I,abor party at the Turk-street Temple last night. His subject was, "The man with the hoe and hi.s damnation." He alluded to the European peasant as the model uf Millet's greal painting, and agreed with Professor Markham that the lords and rulers are responsible for his "aching stoop.'" "Civilized individualism If aggravated barbarism." In response to the criticisms of some the speaker said that if God Is responsible Tor the man with the hoe he desires to withdraw from connection with Him. and recommended to the audience that mankind shall set a day and commit suicide. Judge Treadwell Indignant. When the cases of saloon-keepers charged with having nickel-in-the-slot machines on their premises wort- called in Judge Treadwell's court yesterday he continued the cases for a month and gavi each side fifteen days in which to file briefs. The Judge said he had been approached by friends of the defendants in the City Hall corridors and in his chambers as i" these cases, but he wished it understood that such tactics would not be tolerated by him and he would do his duty irrespective of the threats of not being elected again or anything else.

Dentists agree that teeth must be used to properly preserve them and therefore they urge people to chew their food thoroughly, but the nervous, hurried manner of eating Is altogether too common amonir Americana and when fed on soft mushes they are liable to swallow the food without chewing. Dyspepsia and bad teeth are th re- sult if this practice is continued. True, one can eat soft food without detri- ment if the necessity of chewing is re- membered. Grape-Nuts are bo crisp and brittle and withal bo pleasant to the taste that the user cannot forget to chew and thus the teeth get the necessary use and the glands of the prums ire made to give the Juices that Nnture intends Shall be mixed with th.- food before it enters the stomach.
