James Scott CRONK Is Laid to External Rest
The remains of James S. CRONK, formerly constable of the Third township for eight years, who died at the Soldiers’ home near Los Angeles, last Sunday, arrived here Tuesday afternoon and were at once taken to the Redwood City Undertaking Parlors on Broadway. The funeral took place from there the following afternoon. Long before the hour set for the funeral service the parlors were crowded with sorrowing relatives and friends of the deceased. The beautiful services of the Methodist church were conducted by Pastor YOUNG in an impressive manner. At Union Cemetery the services were under the auspices of Embarkadero Camp, Woodmen of the World, the impressive ritual service being read by Commander F.N. HARRIS. The deceased served in the U.S. Navy during the Spanish American war, and was honorably discharged. Mr. CRONK was 37 years old.
“Jim” CRONK, as he was known by his many friends, grew up, and lived in Redwood City until a few months ago when he was afflicted with eye trouble which rendered him almost totally blind. Through the efforts of friends he was sent to the Soldiers’ Home, where it was hoped his sight might be restored. CRONK served with distinction in the navy during the Spanish American war.
He is survived by a widow, Mrs. Minnie CRONK, and three children, Bryant, Irene and Gladys, all of whom reside in this city. His mother, Mrs. BYERS, lives in San Jose and a married sister, Mrs. Charles NICHOLS, is in San Francisco. His father, the late Samuel CRONK, was the owner of a livery stable here for many years. – Times Gazette.
Every Inch a Man
J.H. FLYNN, a carpenter by carpenter by occupation and for many years a respected resident of San Mateo is seeking the office of constable for the second township. He has long been a leading spirit in the affairs of the Building Trades Council, among the members of which he knows not an enemy, and has every qualification to eminently fit him for the position. The writer has personally known him for a long time and can vouch for the truth contained in the claim made by the caption to this article. – Coast Side Comet.
Misfortunes of Angelo Michletti
That misfortunes never come singing is well illustrated in the case of Angelo Micheletti, whose ranch is in the gulch beyond the wireless telegraph station from Daly City, near what is known as the “Nigger Mitchell” ranch. He is well-known in Colma where he has a host of friends who truly sympathize with him. Angelo Micheletti came to Colma about fifteen years ago and settled on the ranch that he still owns and by the greatest industry, succeeded in the accumulation of considerable property. In fact, everything that he touched seemed to turn to cash until about a year ago.
The first disaster that befell him was an accident in which his boy was run over, necessitating the amputation of his leg, and his life was saved only by the greatest efforts that required the best medical and surgical skill. This of course cost a large sum of money, but even that did not insure the lad’s good health. Not long after that, Micheletti lost a barn, containing two car loads of valuable hay by fire, with no insurance, and during the last year eighteen of his best horses have died. The again, his brother was the victim of a runaway accident, being thrown out in front of Coakley’s road house about three months ago and was instantly killed. With all else, Micheletti’s family has been cursed with a great deal of sickness and a streak of general misfortune seems to have puvated the atmosphere, so that all his neighbors and friends are most sincerely in sympathy with him.
Twenty-five hundred candidates to Moosedom, were put through a series of rituals Sunday in Dreamland Rink and before night became full-fledged members of the order. This was one of the features of the four day’s convention started Saturday by the Moose.
Judge George CROTHERS of the Superior Court was sponsor for the applicants and went through the secret work while the newly made members looked on. Those in charge of the ceremonies were Frank MONAHA, dictator; Thomas ROACH, past dictator; Marc ANTHONY, past dictator; Frank J. DEVLIN, treasurer; Louis A. EASTON, secretary, and Dr. Louis KUTTNER, financial secretary.
After the events in Dreamland Rink a banquet, at which were seated 500, was given in Knights of Columbus Hall to the national supreme officers, who are attending the convention. Supreme Dictator Walter E. DORN made an address, reviewing the objects of the Loyal Order of Moose and the strides it has made since its inception ten years ago. He laid especial stress on the necessity of co-operation from the rank and file of the order in making Moose Heart, a city built and controlled the Moose near Aurora, Ill., a full success.
DORN was followed by James J. DAVIS of Pittsburg, supreme dictator, whose speech created enthusiasm.

BAILEY, who confessed to a misdemeanor charge last week before Justice PITCHER in preference to standing trial for a graver offense was fined $50. He wasted lots of water when the supply was short by secretly connecting with the water company’s mains. This seems to be a case in which too much water is as hurtful to one’s pocketbook as too much wisky.

“Friday, the 13th, Mighty Unlucky Day for Other Side,” Declares Aged Man
Loren Coburn, the 88 year-old Pescadero millionaire, walked out into Kearny street from the Hall of Justice Friday evening and was looking across the way to Stevenson’s monument where a band of Chinese children played, when a bailiff of the court hurried out and said:
“The jury has returned a verdict and they say you are competent to handle your own estate.”
The aged millionaire climbed back up the stairs so fast that it made the bailiff who followed breathless to keep up. When he got back into Judge Cabanish courtroom it was all over. The jury had been discharged. But if Coburn had needed any verification of the bailiff’s words he found it when he saw his aged wife, Mrs. Salira Coburn, kissing and shaking hands with every one there whom she knew.
