Death of Mrs. Angela FRANCIS
Mrs. Angela FRANCIS, mother of Supervisor Joseph M. FRANCIS, who died at her Half Moon Bay home Saturday, was one of the very first Portuguese residents, having settled at Half Moon Bay in 1872.
The old homestead was at the Oceanside where she raised her interesting family, consisting of three sons, John, Joseph M. and Manual, all of whom are prominent and successful men, and three daughters, Mrs. Lizzie SANTOS, Mrs. Mary SIMMONS and Mrs. Carrie CARDOZA. Her one great object was an ambition for the honor and success of her children, and besides, she had a pride and interest in her surroundings that solidified a very large circle of friends, so that during the funeral Monday, the business of Half Moon Bay, where the deceased has resided for the past few years, was suspended out of respect for her memory.
She was laid to rest midst the scenes she loved so well and where she spent her useful life.
Death of Mrs. R.S. THORNTON
Colma has lost a most estimable pioneer in the person of Mrs. R.S. THORNTON, a resident of that beautiful valley of gardens for nearly sixty years, who died at Riverside, Rhode Island, July 23, 1913, aged 84 years.
The deceased left Colma a few weeks ago in company with her daughter, Mrs. J.L. LINDSAY, for a visit to her native Rhode Island home. Soon after her departure from Colma she was taken ill and gradually grew worse until death ended her useful life. She leaves her venerable husband, Hon. R. S. THORNTON, aged 95 years, a daughter, Mrs. J.L. LINDSAY and granddaughter, Miss Josephine LINDSAY together with a large circle of friends to mourn her loss.
The funeral took place at Riverside, R.I., and her remains were laid to rest in the old family plot.

But The Whip Butt
J.M. CHRISMAN was arrested Saturday at Burlingame for an assault with a deadly weapon on H.G. MAYES. Both parties are real estate dealers, and it appears that the mix-up was the outcome of rivalry. CHRISMAN attempted to strike MAYES with the butt of a heavy whip handle, but the latter took the weapon away from him and in turn became the aggressor. MAYES swore out a warrant and Constable SHEEHAN took CHRISMAN before Justice McCORMICK who released him of $500 bail, pending the preliminary examination.

Constable Parker Shoots Assailant
Sunday evening about 7 p.m. Colma was the scene of some excitement, caused by the shooting of a San Francisco tough named PARKER, by Constable J.H. PARKER of Daly City.
The trouble started when a fellow who givens his name as John Roy RITCHIE and another man who is unknown, began fighting. Constable PARKER interposed to quell the disturbance, where RITCHIE, who is a giant blacksmith helper, stuck him a terrific blow, knocking him down. He instantly regained his feet however and placed RITCHIE under arrest.
About a dozen pals then interfered, using the most abusive and indecent language and undertook to rescue RITCHIE. The officer drew his gun to protect himself. More Barbara Coast’s choicest language were then indulged in by the gang and finally the fellow PARKER attempted to strike the officer and at the same time made a motion as if to get a gun, but was too slow, for he received a hot in the right shoulder and the ball glanced down breaking his arm.
RITCHIE and the rest then seemed to realize who they were dealing with and there was a magnificent view of a dozen pairs of hands pointing heavenward.
The wounded tough was sent to St. Luke’s Hospital, where he is getting along nicely, while RITCHIE spend the night in the Colma jail where he remained until the next morning when he was taken before Judge Ellis C. JOHNSON at Daly City. He pleaded “not guilty,” and in default of bail was sent to Redwood City for safe keeping until the trail takes place.
No complaint has as yet been made against PARKER for interfering with an officer.
Motorcycle Accident
Last Thursday morning, Jimmie DALZIEL of Burlingame, ran into a post with his Yale motorcycle and was seriously injury. (sic)
Jimmie had take a friend of his to work and was trying to get back home in order to get to work by eight o’clock, when his presto tank slipped over to one side and made his handle bars so he couldn’t control them and he hit the first thing he came to which was a pole.
Jimmie DOUGLAS of Burlingame, saw the accident and took him to the hospital, and he would not stay here so he was removed home where Dr. MORRISON and OLDFIELD attended him and pronounced a broken leg but when the X ray was used they found that the bone was only bruised. He was unconscious from eight o’clock in the morning until four in the afternoon. His face was also bruised in several places. He is now on the road to recovery and we all hope he is around again soon. The motorcycle received very little damage.
