SOCIALISTS MAKE
BIG PROPAGANDA
RUSSIA FLOODED WITH THEIR
LITERATURE
.Their Program Contains Many
Bites Common to American
itforms and Demands So
clalliatlon of the Land
Ty Asscielated Praia.
MOSCOW, April 6.— The central com
(mlttee of the Social Revolution party
has "drawn up a document containing
the main points •of Its program, and
of this hundreds of thousands of copies
are being printed for circulation In all
1 part* |of . European ' Russia. The first
and main point la the establishment of
a democratic republic on the ruins of
the autocracy and ' beside the usual
points of Social Democratic doctrine It
| Includes many . arguments especially
'directed to Russian conditions and de
[ signed to appeal to the self-interest of
the Russian proletariat,' both agricul
tural and Industrial. It voices phrases
familiar to the American ear, such as
"Initiative and referendum," "public
ownership of public utilities," etc.
The , program Is divided into two
heads. The first deals with the po
litical regime and demands the institu
tions of a democratic republle with
broad autonomy for the provinces, mu
nicipalities an communes; the widest
application of the federal principle to
the relations between the various na
tionalities; a direct secret universal
ballot without distinction as to sex,
nationality ; or religion; proportional
representation; direct popular legisla
tion with the Initiative and referen
dum; electlblllty, responsibility and re
movability of all officials; separation
of church and state; complete freedom
of conscience, speech, the press, as
sembly and association; right to strike;
compulsory popular and gratuitous ed
ucation and abolition of the standing
army and substitution of a national
militia.
Under the head of economics It favors
an eight-hour day with a reduction for
the more dangerous and unsanitary oc
cupations, a minimum wage scale, state
insurance, regulation of factory con
struction, prohibition of child labor
below 18 and of female labor at certain
occupations and professional organiza
tion of workmen with an Increasing
share In the internal management of
institutions.
Would Socialize the Land
In agrarian policy the party declares
that the earth is the common heritage
of all citizens and demands the social
ization of all land or such approach to
abolition of private ownership as is
practicable, Including the sequestration
of crown, church and state lands, turn-
Ing them overi to the communes, and
the limitation and conversation of rents
into an income tax, payable to the com
mune. '.'■!■> ■'■''•
In the realm of finance the party
favors progressive Income and inheri
tance taxes, with small incomes ex
empted; 'the abolition of Indirect taxes
and the protective system, except as to
objects of luxury. It also favors the
common ownership of all utilities, med
ical assistance gratis, development of
cq-operatlon on strictly democratic
principles and measures tending to the
independence of the working classes
of, governmental bureaucracy.
The document closes with a warning
to Individuals against "state Socialism,"
which It declares to be a system of half
measures, deluding' workers, -concen
trating Industry and commerce in the
hands of the governing bureaucracy,
and it urges the summoning of a con
stituent assembly in which it proposes
to conduct the campaign for the disso
lution of the autocratic regime and the
transformation of the existing order.

plundering of estates by the larger
peasant bands. Wi-;: (■■ ■'.-■' •
At Werra, where a regiment of Cos
sacks fired upon a mob which had com
plete possession of the town, the riot
ers were dispersed, but they broke, up
into smaller bands, which terrorized
the neighboring land owners.. Similar
Incidents have occurred at other places.
The smaller bands drive off cattle, burn
barns ami fodder and help themselves
to grain and provisions. • Dispatches

KING EDWARD
MEETS LOUBET
GREAT BRITAIN'S MONARCH
VISITS PARIS
Occasion Marked by Freedom of Con
fidences Exchanged but Unat
tended by Any. Spectacular
Demonstration
n-/ Aaaoclated Preaa.
• PARIS, April 6. — The arrival of King
Edward in Paris today was the occa
sion for a notable manifestation of
Anglo-French cordiality, which is being
generally interpreted tonight as a con
spicuous response to Germany's attitude
regarding Morocco, although the king
remained but a short time. He was
met outside the city by President Lou
bet, who held a private conversation
with his majesty, lasting nearly an
hour. A semi-official communication
recites that the meeting had far less
reserve than that between King Ed
ward and President Loubet last year,
and that it was marked by the free
dom of the confidences exchanged.
Beyond his private conversation.
King Edward confined himself to the
usual public expressions of good will.
In this respect the king's reserve Is
being compared with the freedom of
Emperor William's recent utterances.
The passsage of the king was un
attended, by any spectacular features,
as it was the wish of the authorities
to avoid a political demonstration.
President Loubet | Joined the royal
train at Pierre Fltte station, where,
surrounded by distinguished officials
of both governments, the two rulers
exchanged their first greetings. The
king conducted President Loubet to
his private car, . where the conversa
tion continued until the Lyons railway
station was reached.
Outside the station the crowd was
held back by cordons of police, the
absence of military display being no
ticeable. During the half hour at the
station King Edward continued to talk
with President Loubet and held an ex
tended conference with the British am
bassador at Paris, Sir Francis Levison
Bertie. '??,*& ;---V'- -J7- : '■
King Edward left Paris at 7:10 for
Marseilles, where he will join Queen
Alexandra on board the royal yacht.

BETTER GARBAGE
LAW IS DEMANDED
WOMEN OF FEDERATION ASK
COUNCIL'S AID
Petitions Urging That All Refuse Be
Collected at Night Presented
. to the City's Legls- _
lators
■Will the garbage v question .never
down? ,11118 Is the question council
men are asking each other. A short tlmo
ago when the lid was pulled of the gar
bage deal for a short time the council
chamber rang with the words, "Special
committee on garbage." After things
had been well sooted up all bids were
declared off and the lid clapped down
again with several councllmen slttlns
on it, but internal rumblings with In
cessant eruptions have blown It oft sev
eral times arid' various things have
escaped before It could be .fastened
down again. ... \.. . ,
i Yesterday a committee from the
Women's Civic Federation called at the
city hall, backed by a petition signed
by thousands of householders in Los
Angeles and fetters from the Municipal
league and chamber of commerce to
ask the council to pass an ■ ordinance
providing that all garbage shall be col
lected from the streets at night.
Councllmen Promise Support
The representatives of the federa
tion were assured by the councilmen
who happened to be in the committee
rooms that they were heartily in accord
with the movement, and that the ques
tion would be taken up together with
the city garbage destruction plant and
the new wagons to be employed in the
work of collecting the refuse of the
city. ' '
The women said that under the pres
ent rule many of the residence streets
are lined with garbage cans of various
kinds, sizes and stages of dilapidation.
In many cases they say the collectors
do not call for the garbage until late In
the afternoon and so the curbs are lined
with the 111-sniellinff receptacles
throughout the day.
The foulness of the wagons now em
ployed was mentioned and used as an
argument for night collection, as they
would then be oft the streets during the
day time.
For Clean City
It is the desire of the federation to
make Los Angeles a clean city and in
this they have the support of all the
councllmen. The members of that body
who were present at the interview as
sured the committee from the federa
tion that when the city owns its gar
bage destruction plant it will also own
its system of collection, and it was pro
posed to have special steel, water tight
wagons for Buch service, which would
not allow any foul odors to escape,
and which would be perfectly sanitary.
The question of the collection .of
garbage occupied the attention of the
board of health the night before and
the fact was brought out that the city
ordinance covering the point proscribed
10 o'clock a. m. as ' the latest hour at
which garbage might be collected, but
the contract specifies 12 o'clock. It was
also shown* that there had been 222
complaints for non-collection and that
In certain sections of the city the refuse
was not gathered until late in the after
noon.
For some time the health department
has had Inspectors secretly watching
the garbage contractors crematory, and
while It is estimated that there la at
least eighty tons of garbage a day put
Into the cans In Los Angeles, but about
five tons a day reach the crematory.
The contract^was let on the basis of
eighty tons a day. ' What becomes of
the other seventy-five tons Is the ques
tion with which the members of the
board are now wrestling.
Do the many, wagons owned by ho«
ranchers which can be seen about the
city at night get this seventy-five tons
and turn It Into good pork? is tlu
question the board is asking.

Not Present
By Atnoclated Praa*.
SALT LAKE, Utah, April 6.— Joseph
r. Smith was sustained us prophet,
seer and revelator by unanimous vote
of the members of the Mormon church
at the opening seoelon of the Seventy*
fifth annual conference today. When
the vote vt&t taken to sustain the

In dlssnnt. One of the dissenters arone
to explain his vote, but was not per
mitted to speak, President Smith mere
ly statins that he could present his
objections to the proper authorities.
The Incident created a profound sen
sation. The members who dissented
afterwards stated that they desired to
protest 'against sustaining such officers
of the church as live In polygamy.
Among the apostles sustained were
Apostles Taylor and Cowley. In his
testimony before the Investigation
committee at Washington Senator
Smoot stated that an Investigation was
being made by the church; into the
charges that these two apostles had
taken polygamous ■■ wives since the
manifesto and that^lf the charges were
proved he would not vote to sustain
Taylor and Cowley. Senator Smoot
was not present today, nor were Apos
tles Taylor and Cowley.
FIND GIRL'S BODY
IN DARK CELLAR
(Continued from Pare One.)
of Police Haramel,, Captain of Detec
tives Bradlsh and Detectives Jones and
Wood visited the cottage. The officers
crawled under the house and brought
out the garments upon which the body
had rested.
The whole pitiable story of the death
of the young woman was easily fath
omed, although none of her friends can
give any reason why Mary White
should have taken her life. Some time
ago the woman came from her home
In Ireland to live with her aunt, Mrs.
Peter Brutttg, at 1130 East Pico street.
She secured employment In the fam
ily of H. H. Clark of 507 East Twenty
flrst street. On' the afternoon of March
22 the young woman went ' to visit a
friend, Mac Carroll, on West Thirty
third street, and Miss Carroll was the
last to see her alive.
Peter Bruttlgl cousin to the deceased,
was heart broken yesterday at the fate
that had overtaken his relative. The
young man was the first to discover
the body, but refused to view It. "I
do not know any reason in the world
why Mary should have taken her life,"
said Bruttlg.
No Motive Known
"She had a good home and was treat
ed well. She frequently came to see
us and our home was her. home. Prior
to her disappearance she seemed to be
In ill health. She was also melancholy,
but aside from these two Blight rea
sons there is none other which I can
Imagine that would lead my cousin
to take her own life.
"The detectives have found my
cousin's clothing beneath the house,
and, while I did not look at the body,
I, saw the clothing in which she was
dressed and the articles of apparel
found near the body and I can make
a positive identification from these."
The clothing upon which the body
rested 'consisted of three men's shirts.
The shirts were ragged and had been
thrown beneath the house by members
of the Bruttlg family. These, with an
old tablespread and a blanket, were
beneath the body. On one side- the
woman's gloves were placed neatly to
gether, with the hat and hand satchel.
The satchel contained a purse, a card
case, handkerchief and several other
small articles. In the pocketbook four
$5 gold pieces and $1.50 in silver were
found, j The woman also wore her gold
watch and chain,: her brooch and rings.
A card bearing the name,, of George
Einenbran and one bearing the name
of A. G. Khert were found In the purse.
Undoubtedly Suicide
| At the undertaking rooms an autopsy
was performed by Dr. Campbell. "There
Is no doubt that the case is one of
suicide," Bald , Dr. Campbell after the
autopsy had been performed. "The body
Is horribly decomposed, but In spite of
that fact 'one can easily see that no
violence has been done the young wo
man. Her stomach contains enough
carbolic acid to kill several people and
that It was taken by Mlfts White with
the intent of suicide Is readily' ap
parent."
' "The case of this young woman's
death is a most pitiable one," said
Chief Hammel yesterday. "From the
statements of the undertakers she must
have committed suicide the night of
her disappearance, for the body has
been under that house more than ten
days.
: "Bhe probably' bought the carbolic
add and carried it with her to the
house. The deed was committed at
night, and she either crawled beneath
the house, arranged a place to lie down
and then went back and took the poison
outside, or' after arranging a pallet
beneath the house took the poison on
the spot. As no bottle was found near
the place I am, lnclined to the former
theory. The young woman must have

Man Dies Suddenly in East First
Street Lodging House
A man who gave the name of Con
Vetlan appeared at a lodging house at
117% East First street at 2 o'clock
yesterday afternoon and asked for a
room. He said he was tired and
wanted to rest. Accordingly, the land
lady showed him a room and he im
mediately retired.
A few hours later it was discovered
that Vetlan was 111, and an effort was
made to have him removed to the
county hospital, but tt was impossible
at the time to secure an ambulance.
Vetlan died at 8:40 o'clock and his body
was removed to Bresee Bros.' under
taking parlors, where an fnquest will
be held.
As the man appeared to be very
much worried, but not sick, when he
called at the lodging house for a room,
It' is 'thought that he might have taken
some drug with suicidal Intent, ' al
though nothing to indicate such was
found about the room.
Vetlan had sixteen cents on his per
son. He was about 40 years old and
appeared to . be .' a laborer. Nothing
further could be learned of him.
