BAN FRANCISCO. May 11. After wit

pf the erowdsv Governor Glllett, who ar
rived from the South today to personally
Investigate the local labor situation, held

Governor Glllett said:
"If the local authorities are unable to

If the local authorities could not furnish
adequate protection for the operation of

to rioting. Mr. Calhoun has not applied
for the militia. . - '

'In my conference with the Mayor I
Informed Mr. Schmitz that I believed, if
the police force of San Francisco was
, given the proper encouragement by the
Authorities, the police could control the
situation. The Mayor said he would make
very effort to enable the United Rail
roads to operate cars and preserve peace,
but that he might find It necessary to ask
' ror the assistance of the militia.
"I asked President Cornelius, of the
Carmen's Union, to use his influence
; In preventing the strikers and their
' sympathizers from committing violence
' and to assist the local authorities in
maintaining law and order. I am not
croing to take sides in this controversy,
. but, if tho local authorities cannot cope
with the conditions, I shall take charge
and restore order independently of

Mahon Conies to Bring Peace.
President W. D. Mahon, of the In
ternational Street Railway Employes,
'arrived In the city shortly aft,er mid
night. He has come to take charge
of the carmen's strike. When seen to-
tiitrht Mr. Mihon said:
"I have come for peace, if peace can
be secured. I have not yet had time or
opportunity to acquaint myself with
Mr. Mahon rose from a sick-bed at
Hot Springs, Ark., where he had been
very ill, and came' to San Francisco
to direct the strike in response to the
appeals of the carmen. President Cor
nelius said tonight: "Mr. Calhoun says
This whole thing is a farce.' This ex
pression gives the people of San Fran
cisco a very good insight into the dis
position of Mr. Calhoun. It Is no farce,
(. as far as the carmen are concerned. It
Is a question of bread and butter for
them and their families, and that Is
never a matter of jest."
Mr. Cornelius professed to be well
satisfied with the situation.
There is no change in the laundry or
.Iron- workers' strike. General Super
intendent Robinson of the Pacific States
Telephone & Telegraph Company stated
' tonight that the company now has 200
Dperators at work.
PASSENGERS TAKE RISKY RIDES
More Cars Kan Amid Showers of
Bricks, Jeers and Cheers.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 11. For the
Brat time since the commencement of
the streetcar strike a week ago, the
United Railroads today operated cars
In passenger traffic. During the late
hours of the forenoon and until 5
o'clock in the evening about 1000 men
and women were carried. Only two
of 20 lines composing the system were
operated the Sutter and Eddy-street
lines. . Ten cars were run, with five
minute headway, from the carbarn at
Turk and Fillmore streets east on Turk
o the Intersection of Market and Eddy,
west on Eddy to Devlsadero, south on
Devlsadero to Turk, and thence to
Fillmore. Fifteen cars were run from
the barn at Oak and Broderick streets
out Oak to Stanyon, on Stanyon to
Page, oh Page to Devlsadero, on Devls
adero to Sutter, on Sutter to Market
and back again over the same route.
One hundred and twenty-five non
union ( motormen and conductors
manned' these 25 cars.
Police Not Equal to Occasion.
About BOO policemen, few , of them
'mounted, guarded the streets over
which the cars were operated. Acts of
violence occurred at various points
during the day, and hoots and jeers
were mingled with cheers and shouts
of approval, but no serious outbreaks
featured this first actual attempt to
resume the operation of cars. Never
theless, the officials of the United
Railroads expressed no elation at the
'day s results. They say that. If S00
policemen are required to make possi
ble the carrying of passengers In 25
.cars over lines two miles long, they
have no great hope that the 700 offi
cers -composing the force will be able
to safeguard 450 cars on the lines,
150 miles In length.
Governor Begins Inquiry.
' One of the most important happen
ings of the day was the arrival in the
afternoon of Governor Glllett. who
came from Los Angeles to personally
Investigate the strike situation and de
termine whether the calling out of the
militia is required. The Governor soon
alter, ills arrival held a conference in
the Ferry building with Mayor Sohmltz, accompanied by some flame and conslder
a ,i i i . f ra i t q nr. lt nTiriii RnS. ' aht Hmnkc occurred under car No. 1394
Adjutant-General Lauck, General Rob
ert Wankowskl, commanding the Sev
enth Regiment, National Guard, and a
number of prominent citizens. Signed
statements were received by the Gov
ernor from -President Calhoun, of the
United Railroads, and President Cor
nelius, of the Carmen's Union, setting
forth the respective sides of the con
troversy. Subsequently, Mr. Calhoun
had a private conference, which lasted
over an hour.
The Governor himself witnessed one
of the day's acts of violence, in which
union workmen in a building at Kear
ney and Sutter streets bombarded the
passenger-filled cars with stones and
bricks. He expressed the opinion that,
if the police were properly officered
and did their duty, they would be able
to cope with the situation.
Bricks Thrown on Cars.
Five cars were started from the
Oak and Broderlck-street barn at 10
o'clock A. M.; five more from the Turk
street barn at 10:30. All reached the
junction of Eddy and Market without
incident. There was no demonstration
and very little throwing of bricks. All
the cars carried a few passengers.
Thornwall Mullally, assistant to Mr.
Calhoun, rode on the first Sutter-street
When the Sutter streetcars, five of
them, reached Kearney street, the first
troubled occurred. The windows of the
10-story Sherman & Clay building, par
tialjy completed, were filled with work
men. As the first car passed, a' shower
of bricks descended upon it, thrown by
worrkmen in the building. Then work
men on the street began to hurl stones
and bricks. A policeman with a drawn
pistol entered the building and ar
rested one man whom he saw throw a
brick. Another officer caught a mortar-mixer,
and arrested him. It was
manifestly impossible to stop the
brick-throwing unless an officer was
posted in every window." So the po
lice were compelled to stand and watch
the bricks come out of the windows
without making an effort to stop It.
When the cars reached Market street,
on Sutter, they turned back and ran the
gauntlet again. . At the crossing of
Kearney and Sutter streets three
wagons, heavily laden with lumber.
blocked the way. The drivers made
apparent efforts to move their teams,
but it was not until the police threat
ened to club them that they got out of
the way.' Again passing the Sherman
& Clay building, the bombardment was
repeated. All the cars carried passen
gers, and though the bricks hit the tops
of the cars, no one was hurt.
Jeers and Cheers Mingled.
All through the burned district the
workmen left their work and jeered
and hooted at the carmen. , Through
the residence district the carmen were
cheered and applauded.
The police precautions along Sutter
street were elaborate. Officers lined
both sides of the street In the burned
district, 12 to a block, and in the res
idence portion two officers were posted
at every corner.
On one car, when It reached Sutter
and Kearney streets, were several
women, but their presence did not stop
the shower of bricks. On Sutter street,
near Mason, a couple of heavy iron
girders were placed on the track, but
the carmen succeeded in removing them
after a short delay. At Halght and
Devlsadero streets a switch was found
to be filled with cement. . This also
caused a short delay.
Crowds lined the streets and "were
collected at the principal intersections.
There was as much and as frequent
cheering, of the unarmed strikebreak
ers manning the cars ' as there was
At Van Ness avenue and Eddy street
a fire engine and hose wagon were sta
tioned, presumably for use in quelling
mob violence should the necessity arise.
The first violence offered on the Turk
and -Eddy street route was at Pierce
and Turk streets on the first round
trip. A stone thrown at that corner
struck an Associated Press man .who
was riding on the front platform of the
foremost car. He was not Injured.
Two passengers boarded the first car
as it started from the barn. A union man
stepped out of the crowd that filled the
sidewalk and sought to persuade them
to get off. The men paid no atten
tion to the request. Four more pas
sengers were picked up on the run
down to Market street, and complained
good naturedly when they found they
could not ride further. No police were
escorting the downtown cars today, but
several hundred unmounted officers
were stationed along Turk, Eddy and
Devlsadero streets, lour and six to
each block. Among them were a few
specials in civilian dress.
Police In Sympathy With Mob.
At 3 P. M., 30 odd cars were running.
The Sutter street line" was in opera
tion, and hundreds of passengers were
being carried, among them many
women. The crowds were materially
increasing in the streets and spasmodic
acts of violence were indulged in at
Almost without exception the un
mounted police aloag the route of opera
tion oast of Devlsadero street are in ap
parent sympathy with the strikers, if
they may be judged by the fact that
most of them make little or no effort to
disperse the crowd. Stone-throwing
sympathizers were pointed out to offi
cers on Turk Btreet near Jefferson Square,
on Eddy street at Fillmore and on Turk
street at Pierce. In no Instance was any
effort made to arrest the assailants.
At Van Ness avenue and Eddy and at
Turk and Fillmore, the crowds were
ugliest. At the latter intersection during
the fifth round-trip water pipes, timbers
and paving blocks were strewn on the
tracks under the eyes of the police, who
made no attempt to deter this lawless
ness or to arrest the guilty. Conductor
Harry Lewis, of Chicago, ' who without
protection jumped off his car and cleared
away the obstructions, was made the
target for bricks and stones. Three pa.
trolmen looked on with smiling interest.
Alter the string of six cars had passed,
detail of mounted officers dashed up
and dispersed the yelling mob.
Abuse Rains on Passengers.
Passengers were jeered at and called
"scabs" for daring to ride on the cars.
One business man named Fish was fol
lowed by three union men when he
alighted at Turk street and Webster. He
was upbraided and . reviled for three
blocks. Discovering that Fish was armed,
the men gave up the pursuit. When
Jeered for riding at Van Ness avenue,
several business men retaliated toy shout
ing "loaf era and hoodlums" at the
At 3:30 o'clock the cars on the Sutter-
street line were running on practically
tnelr regular schedules. In many in-
stances the cars were Jammed to their
capacity and some carried passengers on
their roofs. The police guards stationed
at uniform intervals along Sutter street
were gradually withdrawn. N
Brickthrowers Driven Out.
At Sutter and Kearney streets, the
crowds gathered, continuing to interfere
with the running of the cars. Several
of those most prominent in the yelling
and hooting at the strikebreakers and
passeagers were clubbed by the police.
One teamster, who refused to move on
with his team, was dragged from his
seat by the officers and jailed. Owing to
the intermittent bombardment of bricks
and other missiles from the ten-story
Sherman & Clay building at this corner,
several policemen finally invaded the
upper floors and there were no further
disturbances from this source. At
o'clock quiet had been entirely restored In
the vicinity., of Kearney and Sutter
, 6horily before soon a loud explosion,
on Sutter street near Steiner. No dam
age was done, though the car was de
layed for several minutes by the great
crowd which immediately collected. It Is
evident that the explosive contained no
dynamite, as at first reported, but was
probably nothing more dangerous than a
large bomb of the firecracker type.
A large force of strikebreakers arrived
here early this morning, and 400 of them
were housed at the Valencia-street barn.
The new men are under contract with
the company for 3.50 a day, with board

Knn Cars Farther Today.
Tomorrow's programme is to. start
the running of cars at 10 o'clock over
the same lines as were operated today,
with the exception that on Sutter street
the cars will be pushed out farther
into the burned district.
It was apparent that Tuesday night's
action of tho Labor Council in Issuing
to will union men and their friends an
official request to avoid the forming
of crowds and to. refrain from acts of
violence, had an effect today on the
temper of the thousands of men who
thronged the streets.
It is likely that more cars will be
operated tomorrow than were on the
streets today. It is understood that the
same police protection will be afforded
that Is to say, 400 or 500 unmounted
officers will be stationed, two and six
to a block, along the routes, and a few
mounted men will be on guard at the
most Important street corners. There
will be no police escort of the cars.

GIRL WHO BETRAYED ORCHARD
She Loved Him. but Duty Won In
BOISE3. Idaho. May 11. One of the prln
cipal witnesses for the prosecution in the
trial of W. D. Haywood will be Miss
Lizzie Velberg, a waitress at the Sara
toga Hotel at Caldwell, to whom Harry
Orchard had been making love while
planning the assassination of Steunenberg
and whose affection he had won.
Orchard took a rifle to Caldwell.
Almost daily he took the rifle and accom
panied by the waitress went out for prac
tice, as he said. In this way, especially
on "account of being accompanied by the
girl, he evaded suspicion on .account of
carrying a rifle so often. The girl her
self says that she had no suspicion that
Orchard contemplated crime.
The plan to shoot Steunenberg through
a window.was-finally abandoned because
Orchard feared he might kill the wife or
some other member of the family, ac
cording to the prosecution's evidence.
Orchard Is said always to have con
ducted himself as a gentleman toward
Miss Volberg. He was usually genial and
good natured. A few days before the mur
der he grew gloomy and morose and, said
lO ms iwcouiean:
"You think me a good, fellow, but
am not. Some time you may learn what
villain and scoundrel I really am and
despise me for all time."
The girl thought his despondent man
ner and sad words due to an attack of
melancholia and laughed and teased him.
When she heard of Steunenberg's murder
the words of her sweetheart came to her
mind -And an icy chill struck her heart.
Half an hour after the murder Or
chard came into the dining-room at the
notel for his supper. He was pale and
trembling, and kept his eyes on his
plate. The girl was so nervous and agl.
tatcd she was unable to speak. Not
word was said by Orchard except in or
dering dishes. He ate little and quickly
left tne dining-room.
The girl went to her room early, and
getting down on her knees, begged God
to point out the proper course for her
to pursue. She spent almost the whole
night praying. She slept not a wink,
and by daylight was almost exhausted
physically by her fearful mental strug
But eho made her decision. With
breaking heart she went to Joseph
Hutchinson, former Lieutenant-Governor,
and Andy Johnson, a Boise de
tective and told them she believed the
man she loved was the murderer of
Steunenberg, and advised them to
search his room. A key was procured
from the Japanese chamoerman and the
room searched. Bombs, powder, fuse
and other incriminating evidence were
discovered and Orchard was at once
placed under arrest.

Considerable disgust Is expressed by
some of the newspaper men who have

them have asked to be recalled, and

Twq of the strikebreakers were in

scene in the height of the battle and
had to use their sticks freely before
they could quell the disturbance. The
uniforms of several policemen were
torn and their caps were knocked off
in the fight. The Italians went on
with their work, with policemen stand- '

II CURE MEN
: I Have the Largest Practice
: Because I Invariably Ful-
fill My Promises'
Success isn't attained at a bound. It Is
made up of many little triumphs. A large
medicfc.1 practice doesn't await the young
physician" at the college door. He must
prove himself. He must work toward suc
cess day after day,- doing well each day's
It has always been my rule to promise
nothfne; that I am not absolutely certain of
accomplishing. Realizing that no one physi
cian can successfully undertake to cure all
diseases, I entered special courses of study
In preparation for my present work. For
16 years 1 have been proving my ability and
building my success. I have mastered first
the simpler diseases, then the serious com
plex and stubborn ones that others neither
cure nor comprehend. I have confined my
efforts to diseases of men exclusively, and
there is no ailment belonging to this class
that I cannot fully conquer. I make broad
and definite claims. I tell men that I can
cure them, even though others have failed.
Jealous doctors have charged me with claim
ing too much. But I ask wherein have I
failed to fulfill a promise T My practice is
row fully twice that of any other specialist
upon the Pacific Coast treating men's dis
eases. It has grown to these dimensions be
cause I have made promises and fulfilled
them. Each cure I have effected is a triumph
and a manifestation of skill that has had
its part in the making of my success. Each
day new cures are completed and my present
growth of practice Is more rapid than ever
Consultation is free. If you are afflicted
consult me. Tou can rely upon what I tell
you, and If I accept your case you can rest
assured that a complete and permanent cure
will follow my treatment.

Chicago Carmen Demand Advance.
CHICAGO, May 11. The Chicago City
Railway Company is confronted with a
demand for an increase In wages grow
ing out of the recent city election. The
company then promised if the traction
ordinance carried, to raise wages to 21
cents an hour for experienced men. A
majority of the union now demands a
scale ranging from 25 to 33 1-3 cents an
hour, while the company offers from 23
to 27 cents, the existing scale being 19
to 25 cents. The union also demands a
closed shop on the South Side lines and
a 10 per cent Increase for shopmen. Con
ferences are now being held.

The Leading Specialist.
To produce temporary
activity of the functions
in cases of so-called weak
ness is a simple matter,
but to permanently restore
strength and vigor Is a
problem that but few phy
sicians have solved. I never
treat for temporary effects.
Under my system of treat
ment every bit of Improve
ment is a part of a perma
nent cure. Though other
phf-slclans nave, through
my success in effecting
permanent cures, been con
vinced . of the fact that
prematureness. loss o
power, etc., are but symp
toms resulting from
chronic Inflammation or
congestion In the prostate
gland, none have as yet
been able to duplicate my
cures. My system of local
treatment is the only effec
tive means yet known for
restoring the prostate to
its normal state, which al
ways results In full and
complete return of
strength and vigor. Such

responsible for the .func
tional disorder is entirely
removed. It is the only
kind of a cure a patient
desires, and is the only
kind of cure I will treat
