While the minister was alternately threat

this particular trawler was a great favorite

of Islanders to accompany htm on board

CARLISTS NOT HAPPY
(Continued from First Page.)
Spanish police arrest a man of the rank
and ftle, n.11 that he can possibly do 1b to be
tray the name of his Immediate lender.
The Isadora furthermore do not know each
other. Each leader knows only the imn
In the inner circle from whom he receives
his Instructions. All, therefore, that can
be betrayed Is a small s?ctlon f the or
ganization. Every Carllst swears to pro
vide himself with a rifle nnd ammunition
and to keep them concealed. He la fur
ther bound to take the field on the first
slirnal from Don Carlos.
This whole organization was the work
of a Bpanlnh marquis, for many year the
trusted confidante of Don Carloa. The
younger members of tho party, however,
soon became dissatisfied with him, as they
thought that he was not ent-rprlslng
enough. Two yea re ago at a meeting of
the leaders of the leaders held In Paris at
the Grand hotel he was deposed and re
placed by a committee of three, two of
whom are In France nnd one In Spain
Old Lender Uuar.
It Is Interesting to note that this par
ticular marquis Is at the present time in
Spain and la supposed to be watching the
drift of events, though of his quarrel with
other members of the Carllat organisation
and of his actual deposition there Is not
the slightest doubt. Hut he Is supposed to
be acting under the personal direction of
Don Carlos himself.
Jit the prerent moment there are IdO.OOO
stands of arm In the possession of the
Carllst party in Spain.; But what, it will
be asked, are the chances of an Insurrec
tion. That la a difficult problem to answer,
even at best, since it Is difficult even for
the Spaniards to understand (he mysteries
of Spanish politics, but this much It la
safe to say, the Instant a signal. Is given
loo.OOO men will respond to the call, armed
and ready for the fray. The whole of the
Basque provinces and nine-tenths of the
province of Catalonia may he said to be
for Don Carlos, first, last and all the time.
In every hut- of every ptasant . In those
sections the portrait of the pretender Is
hanging and the owner has the rifle and
the cartridges carefully' concealed In some
spot which can be. reached Jn a few min
utes. The only uniform which they possess
is the colored "beret,"' the graceful head
dress of the Basque. . F.aeh'fif the four
districts into which for Carllst purposes
Spain la divided has a different color the
four being red, bin?, white and green.
Of the fidelity 'of tho Cajrlbtta to their
leader there can be no doubt. It Is curious
that there should be even now lWi.000 men
In Spain ready to take tha field and die
for a a. a wLcai they bave never aoea.

BAN FRANCISCO. May ll.-For the first
time since the commencement of the street
car strike a week ago the United Railroads
today operated cars for passenger traffic.
During the late hours of the forenoon and
until 6 o'clock In the evening about 1,000
men and women were carried. Only two of
twenty lines composing tho system were
operated the Sutter and Eddy street lines.
Ten cara were run with ten minutes head
way from the car barn at Turk and Fill
more street, east on Turk street to the
Intersection of market and Eddy, west on
Eddy to Devlserdo, east on Devlserdo, west
on Turk and thence to Fillmore.
The Sutter line cars were run out Oak
to Btanlon, on Stanlon to Page, on Page
to Devlserdo, on, Devlserdo to 8utter, on
Sutter to Market and back again over the
same route. One hundred and twenty-five
nonunion motormen and conductora manned
these twenty-five cara.
About 600 police, a few of them mounted,
guarded the streets over which the cars
wore run. Acts of violence occurred at
various points during the flay and hoot
and Jeers were mlnaled with cheers and i
shouts of approval, but no serious out
breaks featured the actual attempt to re
sume operation of the cara. Nevertheless,
the officials of the United Railroads ex
pressed no elation at the day's results.
They say that If 600 policemen are required
to make possible the carrying of passengers
In twenty-five cara over two miles, they
have no hope that the WO officers com
posing the force will be able to safeguard
450 cara on twenty lines 200 miles In length.
Governor Gillette In City.
One of the most Important happenings of
the day was the arrival In the afternoon
of Governor Glllett, who came from Loa
Angeles to personally Investigate the strike
situation and determine whether the calling
out of the militia Is required. The governor,
soon after his arrival, held a conference
In the ferry building with Mayor Bchmlta,
Adjutant Generaal Leuck, General Robert
Wanowski, commanding tha Seventh regi
ment. National Guard, and a number of
prominent clttsens. Signed statements were
received by Governor Glllett from President
Calhoun cf the United Railroads, and Pres
ident Cornelius of the Carmen's union, set
ting forth the respective sides of the con
troversy. Subsequently the governor and
Mr. Calhoun had a private conference,
which lasted over an hour.
Governor Glllett himself witnessed one' of
the day's acts of violence when union work
men on a building at Kearney and Sutter
streets bombarded the pasnengr-fllled cars
with stones and . bricks hurled from a
height of eight and ten stories.
The United Railroads announce that It
has now In Its employment and quartered
under Its car barns enough men to operate
a majority of the lines In the city, and
that more men are being steadily engaged.
Program for Today.
Tomorrow's program Is to start the run
ning of cars at 10 o'clock over the same
lines operated today, with the exception
of that on Sutter atreet. Tbe cars will be
pushed out further Into the Richmond dis
trict. It was apparent that Friday night's ac
tion of the labor council In Issuing to all
anion 'men and their friends an official re
quest to avoid the forming of crowds and
to refrain from acts of vtolence had an ef
fect today on the temper of 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 un
derstood that the same police plan will be
affordc-thnt Is to say, Sffl unmounted offi
cers will be stationed along the routes and
a few mounted men will be on guard at
the most important street corners. There
will be no police escort on the cars.
FARMERS TO TRY HAYWOOD
Sheriff Hod (tin Summons Hnadred
Veniremen from Country to
Serve on J pry.
BOISE1, Idaho, May TT.-Bherlff "Shad"
Hodgln and seven of his deputies continued
today to serve the farmers of Ada county
with notices to appear In Boise next Mon
day afternoon at 2 o'clock to be examined
as to possible Jurors In the case of Wil
liam D. Haywood, secretary and treasurer
of the Western Federation of Miners, who
Is on trial for complicity In the death of
former Governor Steunenfterg. Altogether
100 men will be In attendance Monday aft
ernoon for Jury duty. It Is the opinion of
both prosecution and defense that twelve
men will surely be qualified from thla
special panel. Witnesses for the prose
cution have been notified to be In court
next Friday morning. Thla indicates .the
belief that tho trial pnnel will have been
sworn In by that time.
An Interesting development of the case
today was the service of a subpocnae by
the prosecution on acting Secretary Kerwln
of the Western Federation of Miners. Mr.
Kerwln had been In the city several days
consulting with the prisoners with regard
to union affairs and the approaching meet
ing of the federation In Denver on June
10. Mr. Kerwln stated that he expected
he might be called as a witness for tho
defense, If the prosecution, developed any
point upon which his testimony was needed.
The attorneys for the state decided today
to summon Kerwln as one of their wit
nesses. The federation officials had
started bnck to Denver, however, before
the subpocnae reached him. The subpocnae
was telegraphed ahead and served at a
point near the Idaho line. Kerwln. It Is
said, expressed his willingness to return
whenever desired. His business relations
with the prisoner, he also announced, would
require his presence In Boise from time to

manitarian Impulse in the city has di
rected effort against conditions In our jails
which all admit are as bad as cramped
and unsanitary jails cn be. When the
mayor and his purty arrive that much In
vestigated Institution will groan like Caesar
of old: "Et tu Brute!"
But If the Investigation planned by the
mayor will add new recruits to the move
ment to provide Omaha with an up-to-date
workhouse a substantial good will be ac
complished. Aid to a good, cause Is still
aid even If It conies from bad humor, be
cause the mayor's practice of granting par
dons without Investigation or Information
has been criticized by the public press.
It Is true, although It may not have
come to the mayor's attention that The
Bee, the Woman's club, the. humane so
ciety and, Indeed, my humble self, have
long been urging the erection and equip
ment of a modern workhouse. A work
house modeled upon the Cleveland plan or
after the Kansas City Institution. A place
having proper sanitation, large grounds,
a variety of employment, removed, from,
the atmosphere of crime and debauchery
In which depravity and moral defect flour
ish. A workhouse costing Indeed a sub
stantial sum In the first instance, but prac
tically self-supporting thereafter. A plaoe
to which both county and city prisoners
van be committed and to which with slight
alteration of the statutes the prisoners of
surrounding counties and towns might be
committed on terms which would yield
revenue to the Institution. A place where
fallen men and women shall be commit
ted, not for "five days, sufficient to meet
the ends of justice," but for periods suffi
ciently long that In a measure at least hab
its of sobriety anoNlndustry shall displace
habitual crime. Displace habits, tenden
cies, defects with which the unfortunate
has no power to cope; but which are a
constant menace and burden upon the com
munity. It was only because the city's legal limit
of bond Issue for 1S0 had been reached that
a proposal to vote bonds for a workhouse
was not submitted lat year. An ordinance
which I prepared for the purpose lust year
la waiting to be Introduced In the council.
Will the mayor favor Its passage? Will
he lend his Influence to a vote to authorial
the Issuance of such bonds? That will be
welcome assistance. Very many citizens
have talked to me on the subject I am ;
sure the time Is ripe for this much needed
advance In the municipal growth of our
I notice that the mayor does no agree
with the pollce Judge about fines and sen
tences. Perhaps we view these matters
from different standpoints. Certainly I am
doing my best In a position made particu
larly difficult by Jail conditions.

rest. It may with truth be said, tha loss of
none has brought more heartfelt sorrow
and a deeper sense of personal bereave
ment, than has the death of this noble,
courageous and lovable man.
Too often ta It that gentility, that cour
tesies of the heart, that affability of true
politeness, which Instinctively ennoble the
recipient, and for him brightens and
broaden life's horizon that these are tal
ents acquired, rather that virtues Inborn.
With William P. Allen, these virtues bios,
somed with sweet fragrance from the
heart, and so modestly and unblddlngly aa
do the flowers of May.
' The qualities which mark everywhere
the good citizen business probity, upright
dealings. Integrity and conscience, were hlg
In full measure, and they made for him an
honorable and Successful business career.
With these, and blended Inseparably with
these, he carried Into his dally life, a love
and unfailing kindness which Impressed It
self orl the hearts of all, and was an In
spiration to those with whom business ac
tivities or social enjoyment brought him In
He waa, above all, a modest man, ' and
few will ever know the kindly acts that
many ever will with tears remember. He
was a lovable man, and many there be In
this populous city and In our clvio associa
tions, who will miss his friendly hand
clasp. Refined and cultivated In his Ideals,
his greatest pleasures were to place about
his fireside and around the circle of hla
friends, the books and pictures, the music
and the art, wnlch should enkindle the best
and purest feelings of friends and home
the home, where for a time, he has left
his companion of thirty-three years, sh3
who can cherish this consoling thought:
that as she looks back upon the years that
have gone, she still sees her "from whose
kind- maternal side she sprung,' and as she
looks Into the years to come, can gather
the consolation which springs from mother
hood twice blessed.
In flno, Mr. Allen was one of those men
whose lives ennoble human nature. To
meet him and to be greeted by him, wus
to meet a gentleman In Its true sense, a
Peace to the Just man's memory let It
Greener with years let the light
Stream on his deeds of love, that shunned
Of all but Heaven.
