San Francieco, Sept. 19 The
Republican municipal convention
was turned into a free-for-all fight
tonight. Delegates fought on the
floor of the big auditorium, on the
etage, and in the .antc-rooms.
Great groups of politicians wrestled
on the floor, driving their fists into
eachothers faces, and sprinkling
the woodwork with blood. To add
to the turbulence the deputy sher
iffs and the police summoned to
restore order fought with each oth
er. . - .-'
The warring factions were the
reform delegates and the followers
of Reuf. When the smoke of bat
tie cleared away, the reformers held
the fort, After quiet had been en'
tirely restored the reformers pro
ceeded to put through their pro
gramme, calling for fusion with the
democrats denouncing Schmi'z and
Ruef in scathing terms.
There was a rumor early in the
day that Raef had planned to car
ry the convention by force. He
controls one wing of the party and
seeks to uee it to further the cause
of Mayor Schmltz who ' has been
nominated by the Union Labor
party for another term. He march
ed into the convention with 175
delegates. Opposed to him were
the reformers who had 223 dele

lery and as soon as the convention
assembled it was evident trouble
Everything went smoothly until
E. E. McGuBhen, a Ruef delegate
obtaining the floor tried to upset
the programme. He wa3 declared
out of order by Temporary Chair
man Sontae, but refused to leave
the Etage. Ssrgeant-at-arms Mc
Gee was told to escort McGushen
to his seat. As McGee attempted
to carry out his orders, friends of
Mr. McGushen rushed to his as
Gus Gilfeather, a Ruefite, struck
the eergeant-at-arms acrosB the face
with his fist and then the general
melee started. There was a wild
rush of delegates from ..all parts of
the auditorium to the stag",
An they reached the point of
combat they threw themselves
into the fray. Soon the entire hall
was a mass of struggling politicians
Women, who had been provided
SDecial seats in the hall, added to
the pandemonium by their screams
While the fighting raged a squad
of bluecoats arrived to restore or
der. At the same time a detach
men t of sheriff deputies in plain
clothes entered the hall. There
was a ciash of authority, and the
policemen and the sheriff's men in
stead ot trvine to restore order
fought wi'h each other,
. The policemen are under tb
control of Ruef while the
etands iu with the reformers.
Finally order was restored. Dan

Kerr Glass Manufacturing Company.
Portland, Oregon. Dear Sirs:- -I
used six dozen of your fruit jars last season and am very much pleased with them.
The Economy Jar is the nicest looking and the best jar I have ever used.
I canned all kinds of fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, pickles and chicken, and had'fine
success with the Economy Jar. . .
I was awarded all the first prizes, consisting "of 8 blue ribbons, at the Oregon State
Fair, 1903, for mv exhibit of canned fruits and jelly.
The Oregon commissioners bought all my fruit to represent Oregon at the St. Louis
Eair. I have been requested to put up fruit for the Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition
1905, and I will use your Economy Jars, They are a sure seal, easy to open, and I prefer
them to any jar I have ever used. .
Yours very truly,
Mrs. S. R. Foster.
: It is worth your while to know YOUR preserved fruits and vegetables are free from
poisonous compounds? You know this if you use the ECONOMY JARS they are endor
sed and used by the
OREGON AGRI. COLLEGE, LELAND STANFORD JR. UNIVERSITY, CALIF
and other Colleges and Universities.
Prof. Snell of the Oregon Agricultural College especially recommends ECONOMY JARS
because the cover is Sanitary and free from any Possibilities of Forming Poisionous Com

The two Mason Jar caps has been examined. Upon examination the metal of the
new Mason cap was found to be pure zinc. The small pinholes in the old Mason cap
were undoubtedly caused by the action of vegetable acids. As a result the fruit in the
jar must have been greatly contaminated with poisonous zinc compounds.
1 regard the use of jars with zinc caps as very unsanitary and even dangerous.
