THE BURGLARS ROOM IN A
Seemed Well-bred and Quite Weal
tby Body of the One Shot '
; " Is Identified aB that of J.
Goldsteins He Had a
' ' Partner. "
' Oaklind Nov 23. The murder
of Pol.ceman James H. Smith has
led to the discovery of a - robber's
retreat established in the home of a
respectable aid unsuspecting fami
ly, and' to the recovery of ' large
quantities of stolen j iwelry.- which
people of-Oaklaod have long miss
ed.' The house is owned by Mrs: W.
. Steadman tfGrove street.- '
1 Ttaat- the? murderer' has escaped
from; Oakland is - generally ffconced-
ed, and the search for- him has been
extended to include -San Franciso
and the help of the San- Franeiec
police aeked but his home ' n Oakland
which he shared With his .partner,
now deau, nas Deen lound and
starched, and a rich reward baa
been the Result. It is 9aid-that all
the mieaing Crellln 'diamoads are
among the jwtla recovered. For
two weeks tne robbers lived, in the
room, their .gentlemanly manners.
neat. attire,, jewelry and apparent
wealth ttjmping them as men of
position, and they! were takm rinto
tb.e little family circle on . Tnanks-
giving evening and dined with Mrs,
Steadman and her friends and fam
Mrs. Steadman a lo-year-old son
Ross, today identified the . body of
the dead robber as v that pf J. Gold
steinv. one,, ot;, the two ,men who
roomed in his mother a, house. He
said the other, man went by. the
name of Cinary. The information
was acted . .upon at- once. Police
bufrted'to r lh6oWlrJM"r8.-Steai
man Si house and there was . found
conclusive evidence .that the pair
were the burglars that have . been
operating in Oakland's fashionable
residence, district, .bain ng , the . po-
:oe in every en. rt at capture .and
finally causing Policemen, Smith to
be detailed on. the mission that re
sulted jn his murder.-. J.... . Y .
.IoveEtieatioD has disclosed : the
fact that the murderer of Policeman
Smith visited .his room in the S tead
man residence soon after the shoot
ing and that he left a' note for. hid
companion, hot" knowing then that
Goldstein had been mortally wduhd
'byh6 pdlicfeman, ; ;
y"i.hey.appearea yery geotieman
fy tolm'V, said MrpiSteadman. "Ih
fact I put them'dowh to be' college
student".. ,I furpished them, with
some of their meals and their con
versation and. table .manners were
perfect. They appeared to have a
fifge" supply,or'Tjioney--,and their
rooin' was filled with all sortaof val
uable articles'. I saw their dia
monds and other . valuable jewels
I did not think anything of this
rfor they appeared ; to be such
gentlemen that I thought they had
a right to have such things. . . 7
Mrs. Steadman, however, does
not know so much of the affair . as
does her eighteen-year-old son, Ross
Steadman. He saw more -of the
pair than did bis mother. In fact
a portion of the time he was . their
companion, not realizing that he
was associating with two experi
enced burglars. . They, made 'the
same impreBsidn upon him- as they
did upon his mother. . From his
story it seems that "Canary," or the
murderer of Policeman Smith, al
though the younger of the pair, was
apparently the: leader. , During the
fwo weeks that Goldstein and Cana
ry were lodging with Mrs. Stead
man the young - man was in their
company a great deal. " The "two
burglars ate their Thanksgiving
dinner with Mrs. Steadman
and a'few friends.- . They were in
cited to do so by Mrs. Steadman
and in return for' her; invitation
ihey presented her with an expen
sive box of candy. J : 1 v ' '
By invitation of Goldstein young
Steadman went hunting yesterday,
returning home in the afternoon.
Within ; a few hours afterwards,
Goldstein -and Canary started out
to operate in the ; Lakeside district,
there to meet Policeman Smith and
to engage, in a fatal pistol duel.
It was rather late at night before
Ross Steadmnh" heard of the trage
dy, but as sooq as he secured a de
scription of the dead burglar he vis
ited the morgue and identified tbe

body as that of Goldstein. - ; Immex'
diately after Ihe identificatiQn by
young Steadman the police went to
the Iedgiogs of - the brace "of ' burg'-'
fars and. the first thing to meet their
gaz9 was a note left-in a prominent
plac9 on a table. This note the po
lice' have and its contents they are
withholding; but according td-Sjead
man the hole reads '.f - s .
;"I will be back in a few darsw
Wit for me. ' , 7 , CANARY." .
, Plunder of all sorts and value
was found-in the room of the burg
lars.' J ust as was told them'- by
young Steadman, the pjlice found
diamond rings and trinkets, silver-
wareand other valuables'. Allrwas
carted off to the police EtationV and.
it is said" the 1 Crellrn family has
identified a portiuu of the valuablaa
as having been Btoltn from their
residence. -. - . ,
The murderer was within a hair
mile of the scene of the shooting for
more than ah hour effer, ' Commit
ting the deed. Policemfan? Smith
was shot at the corner ol Fourteenth
and Jackson streets. The burglars
then rah down Fourteentb street to
Oak Btreet. Here Goldstein,Jmbr
tally: wounded, dropped and almost,
immediately- passed away. Tbetf
murderer turned the corner of Oilc
street, ran on Oak street one block:
to Thirteenth street and then went
two, ; blocks i west on - ,Thirteeritll,
street, reaching Jackson and Thir-T-teenth.,
.These facta are proved by
the statements of officers oa the
Hay wards electric line. They say
a. young man, considerably out. of
breath, greatly flustrated, and . car
rying some nsw clothes' on 'his left
arm and a bundle in his right hand,
boarded their car at Thirteenth and
Jackson streets. In every pariicu
lar be. answered the description ;of
Canary, and furthermore he board- '
ed the car within a few minutes af
ter the shooting. ' '
"Did you hear those shots? There
were two, aud then four followed,?'
breathlessly paid the JQung, man ta

From this statement It ' will be

arranging to' ''' d 1 N Year's
greeting from W iit ' v. to ; all
the countries ot lu u il.zad world
by the employment uf a series of

ployed successfully last year in the
case of the United States, and it is
now intended to extend the service
this year, to covet the continent of

having the necessary cable and tel
egraphic connections in case the
co-operation of foreign governments
can be secured, of which there is
scarcely a doubt. ' 1 Last year the
receipt of the midnight signals was
accurately timed at the Lick. Ob
