SAN FRANCISCO Sept. 15,-There
was a lively s-.ene tonight at the
entrance of the Presidio Reservation.
Police Lieutenant Kelly with seven pa
trolmon, raided the saloon of Press
Anderson and arrested 33 soldier, and
JO civilians who were playing per
centage poker. Anderson was refused
a license recently, but has been run
nlng his place in defiance of the law.
While the police were making the ar
rests, a crowd of soldiers gathered
and assaulted them with sticks, stones
and brickbats. The police wielded their
clubs vigorously but with little effect,
and were finally forced to Are into
the uniformed mob. So far as known,
however, no one was hit.
While the riot was at Its height, an
alarm winded at the Presidio and
three companies of Infantry and one
of cavalry were sent to the .cene,
They succeeded In driving most of the
rlotuos soldiers back Into the reserva
tion, but not without considerable
trouble, the men not being disposed to
yield even to superior force. For a
time It looked as though a fatal con
diet was inevitable, but order was An
ally restored. The 43 prisoner, were
taken to the police station.
BRITISH CAMPAIGN COMMENCES,
NEW YORK, Bept. 15.-Before the
end of the present month the autumn
political campaign will be Initiated
cables the London corespondent of the
Tribune. The Liberal party leader,
are organiiing a vigorous attack on
the government's education bill and
unless Premier Balfour can see his
way to grant a concession on the vital
question of popular control, there may
be some difficulty in forcing the bill
through Parliament this year. The au
tumn session is ostensibly to be de
voted to the education scheme, and In
all probability, Ireland will again
block the way, and It I. not to be ex
pected that the Nationalist, will miss
such an opportunity of drawing at-
tentlo nto the ocerclon polioy of the
government and the recent wholesale
proclamations under the Crime. Act.
