MASS MEETING
THREE LEADERS WITHDRAW
Rev. Wiley J. Phillips It Left In

// era Exchange Sarcastic
Remarks i
"I 'refuse to be a drag on anyone.
You can- take v your meetings and run
them: neither, Mr. Wheeler, Mr. At
wood or • myself will be here to give
you v any further trouble." This was
the efoot fired by C. J. Hall at.
the meeting held, yesterday in the
Wright & Calleiidar hall, at which the
general trouble which* has been brew-.
Ing In the rimks-T^f the,, nntl-llquor
forces was given n thorough airing.
, Accusations have btteri made during
the * past week against Messrs. Hall,
Atwood anfi^VVheeler by supporters of
Wiley J. Phillips, charging them with
trying to take away the meetings
which Mr. Phillips had started and
make the movement to drive the liquor
traffic from Los Angeles \ purely Pro
hibition party Issuer v The positions
taken: by both sides were brough up
find discussed for almost two hours
yesterday before the* final action was
taken resulting In the rescinding of ail
the V resolutions - passed at a former
meeting. '
.'The session was called to order by
Wiley J. Phillips, who was the origlna
"tor of the present movement, and Mr.
s,PhHl)ps said that in Justice to him
'. self 'and the audience he felt callod
I upon to make a statement of the condl
.'• lions of affairs.
„'.:•■-..- ■ ■ ■ •
Mr. Phillips' Stand
t ; ', "The meetings which 'we are holding
'in' this hall are the outcome of months
;; of-,; contemplation. They were com
| menced by Mr. Nichols and myself,
• but business called him away and ' I
'was left to carry the work on alone.
:"». t"It "I secured this hall, obtained speak
ers and have done all the advertising
myself without assistance from anyone.
; I hoped to have enough interest created
; to warrant the rental of a larger hall
..bsfoMv many weeks had passed ; a^id

best talent. ■■*" ■• > '
'"We intended then to make a can
:'. vass-of the city and finally form or
ganizations In the different wards. I
jj do : not think • that there ought to be
any committees, but just a spontane
ous, uprising of the people, v
"With reference to the meeting, last
Sunday I will say that I had never
'.! heard' about the preamble and resolu
tions''until they were brought up In
the meeting. The proposition was not
"/presented to the Prohibition alliance
nor to any other body.
' "I have no objection to the method
•proposed, by Mr. Wheeler if . It is the
j best, way of securing the abolition of
■ the liquor traffic, but I am inclined to
'doubt that it is. I am ready to fall in
\ line and do just what everyone wants,
'as 'l. think that the destroying of the
: liquor v traffic Is the supreme thing
-which should be considered."
:-'•*;' Rev. , E. P. Ryland was Introduced
as one of the speakers of the afternoon,
'and cautioned the people against the
dissension .which is bo apt' to come at
; a time when victory is near. ■ , ..'.'.
j "There are three attitudes a man may
take. toward the liquor traffic," said
'■the speaker. "He may. belong to the
.-class who wants it and says it will
stay, he m» y y belong: to the class that
says he: does not want It but insists
that it cannot be done away with, or
he; may be like you' who say that It
.can, be done away with; should be; and
; by the help of God will be. .
Indifferent as to Leader
... "It makes no "difference under,heaven
who 'shall lead in this movement. I
do not care who is at the head nor do
I! believe that any man here cares. I
do noticare whether it is you or nor,
Brother Phillips, though there Is not a
'"man ' in this city for whom I have 'a
greater regard, or ;, Mr. Hall or Mr.
Wheeler, but what I do. hope is that
God will help us to realize our ! greut
duty. .-, We do not. want to stop for any
minute quibble about who shall bo the
leaders. Let God be the leader and
may he hejp us not to stop one moment
to, have discussloii among ourselves.
I honor Or. Chapman, I honor all these
men, but I am not asking questions as
jo men but only that they be moved by
the right motive."'
I Rev, Mr. Barr, who was the second
speaker, made some remarks which
were 'not Junt exactly agreeable to all
those present.
"Just when we are nearest to victory
is the time that the devil will be most
active," said the speaker. "He creates
dissension. He sets us to quarreling
jubt when It Is most necessary that we
should be attending to business. Trust
the Prohibitionists to fight; they ul
ways will, anyway."
; , "It isn't true," "I know It is not," "I
don't believe it," 'came from members
of the audience.
."There you are, 1 ' said Mr. Burr, "dls
agreeing with me already; "It just
proves what I said. We have to fight
jealousy ' ami suspicion In our own
Tanks, and until we can drop that we
will never accomplish anything, if
there hus been anything which has ills.

$250,000 Worth of Jewelry
Handled by Her '„'■'
By Associated Press.
| CLEVELAND/ Jan. 15.— The ! Plain
dealer' tomorrow will Bay: Investiga
tion'lnito the charge that Mrs. Cassie L.
Chadwlck* smuggled- large ■quantities
of 'diamonds, ' gens .Ifiid other."predioui
stones into' this country, has developed
the fact, that the woman . dealt 'in
precious stones to an almost fabulous
extent. -In order to make a case on the
charge of smuggling, It was found nec
essary for the government authorities
to trace all the deals for diamonds and
Jewelry made by Mrs. Chadwlck, both
in this country and in Europe. The
statement .has been made by Collector
of Customs Leach that more than $250,
000 worth of Jewelry and . precious
stones handled by, Mrs.Chadwick have
been traced, and positively located.. lt
is added that this great amount of Jew
elry, has been uncovered with the in
vestigation' still incomplete, jOf this,
amount the : government ' is directly
interested in about one-third.' ■ .;• ■
: While the government is attempting
simply to collect any. unpaid duties on
diamonds brought from Europe,' it is
understood that the evidence secured
will' be placed at the disposal of Re
ceiver Nathan Loeser and that he wllJ
be able to realize thousands of dollars
lor. the ■■ creditors of the woman.: The
Investigation has led to the discovery
that only a small portion of the jewelry
was put up as collateral for loans made
by Ttfrs. Chadwlek and'that by far. the
greater .portion went as gifts to friends
and acquaintances. ,
j The regular customs rate of duty on
diamonds and Jewelry brought to. this
country Is 10 per. cent of the value of
the goods. . Figuring ■on . this basis the
government authorities expect to real
ize between $8000 and $10,000. > The rest
of the proceeds from 'the sale of any of
the jewelry on which duty has not been
paid wlll.be turned over ,to Mr. Loeser
tc.be distributed among the Chad wick
creditors. . ■ ■ , ■
It is simply the truth to say that
Mrs. Clmdwlck handled pearls,^ rubles,
sapphires; emeralds and 'garnets ■' al
most literally by the peck, said a gov
