Suicide of Alfred LEIDECKER
About six o’clock Sunday Alfred LEIDECKER purchased an ounce of chloroform from the Peninsula drug store in Daly City, saying he wanted to kill a dog. He then went to Knowles saloon, where in the presence of a dozen people he drank the chloroform and at once sank to the floor unconscious.
An antidote was administered and Dr. G.L. MARION was called, who soon had the man reviving with the assistance of those present who aided in the artificial respiration necessary, caused by repeated sinking spells. Finally he was thought to be in good condition so an ambulance was called and conveyed the patient to a city hospital. But he died an hour after arriving at the hospital.

Fire Chief BARLETT’S vacation
Chief George A. BARTLETT of the San Mateo Fire Department, the oldest fire chief in the State in point of years in service, left Tuesday on his first vacation in twenty-six years. To roam at will, to cast line where trout are thickest and to shoulder the shotgun will be the sole occupations of the veteran fire fighter for one whole week. He will be the guest of his son at Coalinga.
During his lengthy term as head of the local fire fighting organization, Chief BARLETT has missed only two fires. He has led his men bravely and has a long list of courageous acts to his credit. He has in all, with the assistance of his men, put out 2251 fires. A coincidence was the fact that during 1906, the year of San Francisco’s big fire, San Mateo did not have a single blaze.
Chief BARTLETT was instrumental in the organization of this city’s fire department in 1887. At that time the equipment consisted of a few feet of hose and a few buckets. A year later BARTLETT was chosen chief and has never yielded office.

Marriage Knot “Busted”
Caleb COAKLEY, the wealthy Colma inn-keeper, who earning the distinction of being the most married man in California by being married by five Justices of the Peace in a single day, is ready to cast off the honor, and has started suit to be divorced from his wife, to whom he has been married just a month and two days.
On August 2d COAKLEY and Mrs. Bessie ANTHONY went to Redwood City to get married. It happened that District Attorney Franklin SWART had called a convention of the peace officers of the county on this date and five Justices of the Peace, H. LAMPKIN of Redwood City, J.A. McCORMICK of San Mateo, Ellis C. JOHNSON of Daly City, John F> DAVIS of Burlingame and John PITCHER of Pescadero were present. COAKLEY could make no choice, so all five magistrates pronounced the ceremony while twenty chiefs of police, deputy sheriffs, constables and traffic offices stood as witnesses.
But all that was a month ago, COAKLEY now charges his wife with extreme cruelty. COAKLEY obtained a divorce from his first wife only three months before he married Mrs. ANTHONY. She was a matron on a Pacific liner. – Chronicle
