Hunter Dead; Companion Held
Last Friday John ANDERSON, former gold instructor of the Beresford County Club, and Fred LEVY, former timekeeper for Clark & Henry, went on a hunting trip in the hills back of the Hobart estate. LEVY returned alone and reported to the Hillsborough police that ANDERSON was lost. Later a searching party was organized and ANDERSON’s body was discovered with a bullet-hole in the right temple. LEVY told several conflicting stories, admitting that he knew ANDERSON was death when he reported him missing, and his words and actions have cast suspicion upon him. So much so that, while the verdict of the coroner’s jury at the inquest Wednesday was that Anderson died from a gunshot wound, self-inflicted, the coroner refused to approve the verdict and LEVY is being held by the authorities.
Frank DALRYMPLE of San Francisco was a Farrallone visitor Sunday.

Death in Auto Accident
In an automobile accident which occurred Tuesday night on the county road between Belmont and Bereford, George L. ALEXANDER, manager of the American Type Founders Co. of San Francisco, was killed and J.S. ANDREWS of San Francisco, Mrs. S.J. SMITH and Mrs. J. SPAULDING of Oakland were seriously injured.
The machine, driven by ANDREWS, collided with another one which was standing in the road and turned turtle. The members of the party were taken to the Red Cross Hospital in San Mateo in passing automobiles. Here it was found that ALEXANDER was dead, his neck having been broken. ANDREWS was seriously injured, but was able to be removed to a San Francisco hospital Wednesday. Mrs. SPAULDING had suffered a fracture of the right leg and Mrs. SMITH many lacerations and bruises.

After the dinner there was music and dancing, so that everybody present was joyously entertained until the advancing hours in the morning when the owl cars run.

The actual amount of stock subscribed is $3 by the following stock-holders who subscribe one share each: W.C. BARRICK, A.L. ROBERTS and Geo. F. CROSBY, all residing in San Francisco.
Ejected From Moving Train
Mr. RICHLAND who was recently injured near San Jose by the brutal action of a Southern Pacific conductor in ejecting him from the train while it was in motion, has nearly recovered from his injuries. Mr. RICHLAND, who is employed as a government wine gauger, boarded the train at San Jose, after walking from Agnew’s in order to catch it. He was rather dusty from his long hike, and this couple with the fact that he was unable to readily find his ticket, caused the conducted to class him with the genus hobo and bundle him unceremoniously from the train. He received severe gashes about the head and face in his fall, necessitating a number of stitches at the hospital in San Jose, where he was taken for treatment. One of the nurses in searching his clothing found his ticket in a side pocket of his coat. The Southern Pacific, realizing that its employe’s action was wholly unwarranted, paid the medical and hospital bills of its victim and is said to have tried to square the matter with him, but the prospects are that it will be defendant in a heavy damage suit, with a good change of coming out a loser.
