BARD'S PROSPECT
LOOKS BRIGHTER
HIS CANDIDACY APPARENTLY
GAINING STRENGTH
HERRIN MAINTAINS SILENCE
U. 8. Grant, Jr. Declare* He It Not
In Race for Senator and Re.
fuses to Talk
Further
ttpeeUl to The Herald,
SACRAMENTO, Jnn.' B.— Despite the
efforts of the machine candidates,
"Boss" Herrln fitlll maintains that
B'lence which has • characterized his
movements since the war for tho scn
atorship was commenced several
months ago. After a two days' jaunt
in San Francisco, -where it was saw
an attempt would be made to get the
"organization" to speak, the different
iaepirants, with their campaign mana
gers nnd aids, returned to Sacramento
I tonight, npne .the wiser for their ex
perience.
While the situation shows very little
chlnge there is a strong indication
that Senator Bard will strengthen his
position very materially within the next
twenty- four hours. His stock has been
steadily growing better nnd it is pre
dicted that he will surprise the oppo
sition after the first few ballots are
taken. 0
"Bard can be elected hands down,"
said .a prominent politician of another
raction tonight, "If he will only pre
sent his case to the proper authorities,
tti the first place he is close to Rocke
[cUer and Rockefeller in turn is close
to', Harrlman. Now if Rockefeller
passes the word to Harriman that Bard
must be raturned to the senate and
Efarriman instructs Herrln and the real
>f the organized, the other candidates
, might Just as well pull in their sails,
that . would settle it."
'it is admitted that Bard is in a far
tetter position to accomplish some
good for California than would be a
' new senator. The fact that he Is
"chairman of the Irrigation committee,
I which has a great work to perform
during the next ' decade, is winning
him much support. The powers that
1 pe'.in.the north have given It out that
' the senatorshlp must go south, if tha
legislators from that end of the state
' 'can concentrate upon some one candi
date, otherwise they feel at liberty to
inject a northern man into "the con
gest and elect him.
■ As the situation now stands there are
almost as many senatorial candidates
as there are legislators, but It is thought
after the first few ballots the number
will simmer down to two or three.
,U. S. Grant, jr., arrived in Sacra
mento today and after securing apart
, ments at the Oolden Eagle he imme
diately proceeded to the governor's of
fice in company with Senator M. L.
. Ward of San Diego.'
"I am not a candidate for senator,"
said Mr.' Grant. . . .
"But will you becoma'a candidate if
P there is a deadlock in the legislature?"
was asked.
"I am not a candidate. That is all I
have to say," he replied. Mr. Grant do
• clined to discuss the senatorshlp further,
I but from his conversation it was evi
dent that he is in a "receptive" mood
•and may be induced to enter the con
. test if he sees any chance for him.
; ' Arthur Fisk's candidacy for the sen
ate is assuming large proportions and
indications are that ho will receive at
least twenty-flve votes on the first bal
, lot. [ This amazing strength has de
veloped within tho ' past , few days and
0018 now thought that Flsk will make
■a. better showing than George Knight,
the other northern candidate.
' ; When the electoral college meets
today, Richard Melrose of Anaheim
will, probably be -selected to carry the
electoral 'vote of California to Wash
'<k ington. 'There is some talk of George
\WWPlppy of San Francsico being the
I , Vholce of the electors, but It Is thought
the southern man will be successful.

NO COMPROMISE;

PROHIBITIONISTS TO INVOKE
REFERENDUM
LIQUOR TRAFFIC DENOUNCED
- %
New Organization Formed to Fight
Sale of Intoxicants— All Tem
perance Workers Asked
to Join
"No compromlnr." '. .', -.;■
This la the Blogtin which waft nrinpteU
by the body of citizens which resolved
itself Into the Los Angoles Prohibitory
union, with the avowed Intention of
forcing the liquor traffic In Los Ange
lefl out of existence during the pres
ent year, at a meeting h-sld yesterday
in Fraternnl hull.
Rev. Wiley J. Phillips' called the
meeting to ordjer and outlined the
platform of the proposed organization
showing the number of saloons In Los
Angeles nnd the amount of money ex
pended in them during each year and
giving a list of the things that could
be. done with the same amount o£
money.
Numerous Blind Pigs
"There are two hundred licensed sa
loons in this city and about 247 blind
pigs." said Mr. Phillips. "Allowing the
number tobe two hundred and accord
ing to the recent estimate of C. D.
Willard that an average of sixty dol
lars per day is taken in over the bars,
the annual waste in our city amounts
to the enormous sum of $3,766,000. Just
think of the good things this money
would purchase. Money enough to en
dow all the colleges of Southern Cal
ifornia, and all the homes and chari
table institutions, establish free public
baths, lay out fine roads and boulevards
to all the outlying towns, build two high
schools, a public library and grammar
schools enough to do away with all the
'shacks' now in existence, clothe four
thousand men and women, establish
scholarships In the best universities in
the land and pay the city of Los An
geles for loss of license fees. We could
take care of fifty policemen who would
be out of work, we could pension nve
judges who would have nothing to do,
pay city and county loss sustained by
lack of a chain gang, pension each of
the 800 men diiectly connected with
the sale of liquor each .year until they
cculd become selfsupportlng, start a
bank account for 500 wives and chil
dren of drunkards and still have
enough to buy $42,000 worth of fools'
caps to put on the heads of the peo
ple who think th<o saloon is a financial
benefit."
Denounces Traffic
When Mr. Phillips had. finished giv
ing the statistics the speaker of the
afternoon, Rev. C. C. Pierce of the
Memorial Baptist church, was intro
duced ( and took up the subject or
compromise.
"We cannot afford to let any part
of the liquor traffic remain," said the
speaker. "It must all go and I do not
think that it will cost any more to
get rid of it all than half of it. Com
promise is moral treason both to God
and the city and the liquor traffic is
all bad and no good. We have a hard
fight before us but we can accomplish
it if we will get down to work and
strike at the root of the evil. ' ■ ■•
"W« pick up the papers each Mon
day morning and read that people
have talked the day' before of the
Eecond coming of Christ, and all I the
things that can be thought of, but we
do not find 'that any one has touched
upon the problems of our city, the
things which are striking at the very
life of the place.
No Compromise
"Let us remejnber the slogHn 'no
compromise," and say down with th«
saloon, now at once and forever. It
must go in this the year of our Lord
1905. If we will all get to work and real
ize that no ono special organization, no
W. C .T. U., no Prohibition party, no
anti-saloon league, but the people of
Lob Angeles are the ones who are go
ing to do it. It can bo and will be.
The people of this city can rise up
r.nd strike at the root of the evil so
that in six months there will be noth
ing left of it."
After Mr. Pierce had finished speak
ing the question of organization was
taken up and resolutions were pro
poned by Fred F. Wheeler in part as
follows:
To Invoke Referendum
Whereas, It is the sense of this
meeting tlftit the time has com<t to

all altoholli! beverages within the mu

By Associated Press. ■ -
DENVER, Jan. B.— A hot'fight is ex
pected in thesenate when the nomina
tions of judges' ln : the supreme court
made yesterday by Governor Peabody
come up for confirmation. The* Demo
crats held a caucus tonight, and at Its
conclusion declared, that they would
fight the, nominations to the supreme
bench of Bailey and Goddard with all
their power. They claim, moreover,
that with the Republican senators,
Campbell and Delorigr, voting with them
they will be able to prevent the con
firmation.'
The Republican leaders declared this
afternoon that they had received per
sonal pledges from enough Republlcun
senators to Insure the confirmation of
the two men. They were not, however,
over-confident ' of the' issue and > ad
mitted that there would be something
of a fight before the confirmation was
made. • '.-.' • ■ ■••';,
It is Governor Peabody's present in
tention to contest the electlotr of-Gov
ernor-elect Adams. Under the. law he
cannot file notice of contest before the
sixth day of the session, which will be
tomorrow. He ' has, however, several
days in which to file his notice of con
teat, and he may not doiso until after
the Inauguration of Governor-elect
Adams. '
The latter said today:
"I do not know whether Governor
Peabody will make a contest or not, but
I expect that he will. I am in a much
better position for such a proceeding
now than I was two days ago. At that
time the Investigation was confined by
the court to the city and county of
Denver. •„ Now it Includes the whole
state, and I feel confident that the
Democrats can show as many or more
fraudulent Republican votes In the out
lying counties as the Republicans claim
were cast by the Democrats in Denver.
I am certain of the result if the entire
state is brought into the contest, as it
must be -If Governor Peabody decides
on such a course."

—The conference which Emperor NlcH
olas has been holding with members
ot the council of the empire, M. VVltte
and other members and advisers, on the
internal and external situations, has
been concluded, but nothing has oc
curred which would Indicate that th« 3
government is prepared to depart from
Its present program of continuing the
war to the bitter end. Nevertheless,
talk of peace was heard Sunday In
many quarters, the foundation for It
being ascribed' to Foreign Minister
Lamsdorff'B position In favor of such
a course on the ground that, aßlde
from the humiliation to military pres
tige Involved it would only mean the
rellnquishment of Manchuria, to which
Russia already Is formally pledged.
/The belief which existed In excep
tionally" well informed diplomatic cir
cles that the Japanese would follow
the fall of Port Arthur with moderate
peace propositions, has not been real
ized, i. Up to the present time nothing
has reached the : government either
through the United States or other
channels, Diplomats here cannot fig
ure out the general lines of a treaty
at thU ' juncture which both belllger
ants would accept but realize that tf
Japan makes any sort of offer, unless
if. is rejected outright as not enter
tainable negotiations will be opened
and at once entered upon |in ' which
friends of both parties could use their
good offices and bring ■ about j good
terms. This .is the only • hope for a
termination of • the war which diplo
mats can see.
Solemn services in honor of those who
fell in the defence of Port Arthur were
held on Sunday at the Kazan cathedral
ond the Troitka monastery. The ser
vice pasEed off without demonstration
of any sort. Neither the emperor nor
members of the imperial family | were
present. ■ A requiem was held simul
taneously in the chapel Tsarskoe-Selp.
Although Field Marshal Oyama took
pains' to formally communicate the
news of the fall of Port Arthur to
General Kuropatkm, announcement
has not been made to the army in
Manchuria, or at least no mention of
such announcement Is made in dis
patches from the front of the manner
In which the news was 'received there.
One curious dispatch spoke of a big
celebration of New Year's clay along
