This year. Superintendent Hlgler and

the importance of thin event have offi

"The Kaat Side Business Men's Club,
feeing that It desires to do something
to eacourace the interest taken by the

ITALIANS OBJECT TO SEWER
CONNECTIONS WITH HOME.
Irate Hou.HOMife Stands Over Exca
vation Vntll Worker, Sent by
A plumber sent out yesterday by the
City Health Board to make sewer con
nections In the Italian colony In the
gulch west of the Southern Pacific
bridge on Fourth street, was uncere
moniously routed by the woman of the
household upon whose land he sought
to work. She enforced her objections
by standing over the hole that had been
dug the day before.' and refusing to
budge until the plumber disappeared.
Sewer connections In that district have
been a bone of contention for many
months, and about four weeks ago the
City Health Board took a hand.
Houses of two members of the colony
adjoin and are hedged In on all sides
by private property. For their mutual
accommodation parcels of the prop
erty were set aside as an alleyway.
anltary conditions recently called
for the attention of the Health Board,
and lr. Wheeler opened negotiations
for connecting a sewer from the prop
erty to a lateral that ends at a point
under the private alleyway.
One of the families was willing and
the other waa not. Friday, after long
debate between the health office, -the
willing family and the unwilling fam
ily, a police officer accompanied the
plusher to the scene. A dole was made
for- the connection. Yesterday the
plumber returned alone, and was driven
away by the Irate Italian woman.
CARD Of thanks.
I gratefully acknowledge the many
kind acts and remembrances by my
neighbors and friends In connection
with th sickness and death of my
wife. Flliaheth S. Crosier, and return
my heartfelt thanks for the same.

Suit was filed several days ago by

tering a counter claim for $1.50. the

answer was demurred to on the ground
that-the promise should be set forth
la terms, but the court ruled that its
nature could be brought out at the
trial on the merits, and the case will
now co to trial.
"If I have violated the election laws,"
said Garland, "I'll have to kick through
with the money. It looks like I was
hookeu. all right. These people sent
a renresentatlve to me before the pri
mary, saying that they wanted a square

Practice Commoa He Says.
Garland asserts that the practice has
been common in recent campaigns, and
says he has the name of one candi
date who was furnished with 100.000
pieces of printing free of charge, under
a like promise. So far as the printers
are concerned, the act Is allowable. It
is said, coming under the provision
which allows friendly contributions up
to 50. Any promise, however, given by
the condidate and binding him as to
acts to be performed after his election,
is an infraction of the statute, accord
ing to the District Attorney.
The printing company denies that any
such promise as alleged by Garland,
was solicited by them or received.
Garlandln his statement of expendi
tures under the Corrupt Practices Act,
listed the bill In dispute, certifying
thst he had paid or undertaken to pay
lis for tha printing.
