TAKES THREE LIVES
Men Engaged in Blasting 600-Foot
Well Killed While Looking Into
[By Associated Pres«.l
SONOMA, Cm., Oct. 15.—A frlKhtful
accident occurred today on the Ku
dolph Sprerkels ranch, four miles from
town, In which throe men lost tholr
lives by the prnmaturn oxploslon of a
charge of dynamite. The dead are:
L«. D. CRANE, formerly of San Fran
HERBERT WRIGHT of Santa Rosa.
It appears the men were engaged in
blasting out a 600-foot 12-Inch well a
mile or so from the ranch house. About
10 o'clock a loud explosion wns heard
by otnrr employes, but no atentlon
was paid/to It as it was known that
Foreman Crane and his companions
were blasting out a well.
When the noon hour arrived the
three men failed to show up at din
ner and a search was Instituted for
Upon arriving at the well the search
ers discovered Foreman Crane and his
two companions lying dead, and fright
fully mutilated. The men lay from
eight to fifteen feet from the well,
where they had been blown by the
force of the explosion.
As the men's faces were blackened
and mutilated almost beyond recog
nition, it Is surmised that they were
looking down Into the well while low
ering a 100-pound charge of dyna
mite into the hole, and that it pre
maturely exploded by coming In con
tact with the side of the well, ten
or fifteen feet from the surface.
LOS ANGELES TO
GET PALTRY SUM
SAN FRANCISCO HARBOR TO
Committee Turns State's Resources
to Golden Gate, Giving San Pedro
and San Diego but $1,500,
[Special to The Herald.]
SAN FRANCISCO, Oft. 15.—The evi
dent Intention of the legislature to dis
criminate against Los Angelee -hi the
harbor matter was shown at the ses
sion here- today of the legislative com
mittee appointed to investigate the har
bors of tho state. Without a full In
vestigation of the San Pedro harbor or
any other Los Angeles county Interest
the romnilttoe deckled to recommend
that practically all the resources of the
state lie thrown to San Francisco, and
that San Pedro be given a compara
tively nominal amount, the same as
will be recommended for San Diego.
The committee was enthusiastic In
voting that $10,000,000 bo spent by the
state In the next ten years in improv
ing San Francisco harbor. San Pedro
received hut scant attention, but the
decision was for $1,500,000 In the next
decade for that harbor and a Blmllar
amount for San Diego.
The members of the committee pres
ent were Senators Wright of San
Dlcgo, Kennedy of San Francisco and
Wolfe of San Francisco and Assembly
men Johnson of Sacramento, Leeds of
Los Angeles iind Rtrohl of San Fran
cisco, composing the full membership.
The Han Francisco organizations In
terested In the harbor plans of that
city participated in the discussion. They
urged tho recommendation of $10,000,
--000 for San Francisco, and the com
mittee was unanimous in favor of this.
The recommendations will stipulate
that all expenditures will be made
under the jurisdiction of the state har
bor commission. '
The legislative committee unani
mously passed a resolution urging that
the people vote for the India basin act.
The resolution states the comlmttee's
belief that the revenues or San Fran
cisco harbor will be sufficient to take
care of the Interest and sinking funds
for the bonds the act provides for. An
other resolution was adopted in favor
of constitutional amendment No. 29,
which fixes the life of state bonds at 75
One of the local business men present
characterized the meeting as "a San
Francisco love feast."

CHICAGO, 111., Oct. 15.—While Wil

Ohio and elsewhere making fran
tic appeals for the support of laboring
men, his running mate on the Republi

his indorsement to the statement that

recently at Akron, Ohio, the meeting
which he addressed was presided over

Diamond Match trust.
Mr. Barber introduced Mr. Sherman

Fredericks as Untrue
to His Public Trust
AT 2 p. m. today the investigation of the protection of vice in
the city of Los Angeles was begun before the grand jury,
and at 2:30 p. m. I was removed from office by the district
attorney and made powerless to proceed. A number of witnesses
had been subpoenaed by me to appear at the same time, and 1 was
prepared and ready to proceed with the inquisition. Upon the
very threshold of this investigation, and, in fact, within half an
hour after my appearance, my powers were again taken from me
by my removal from office. And this in the face of the fact that
the district attorney had no means of knowing one-tenth of what
I expected to prove, for I have never talked with him in relation
to the matter.
The history of this travesty of justice is almost unbelievable.
This man was compelled against his will, from a source that [
cannot divulge, to restore my powers after having once removed
me, and after being forced to take this step, attempted by unfair
means to keep my appointment secret, and betrayed a promise by
curtailing my powers in every way possible. In the face of all
his perfidy and my unshaken fear that he would do the very thing
he has done, I agreed to take up this investigation and proceed
with the same without any compensation from the public and to
provide detectives and any other assistance that might be needed,
absolutely free of charge to the county. For some time I have
been engaged in preparing the matter for submission to the grand
jury. He delayed his promised reappointment until yesterday,
the' 14th, and then reluctantly appointed me, but hedged about
my powers in a way to make the situation unbearable.
Even under these adverse conditions I consented to act, and
now, before I have an opportunity to begin the investigation be
fore the grand jjury, he does the very thing that I should have ex
pected from the first, and in the last extremity again removes me
from office and renders me powerless. The first of the civil suits
against me was hurriedly filed late in the afternoon of the 13th, a
few hours before the time set for my reappointment the next morn
ing. This did not serve to intimidate or deter me, and as a last re
sort it became necessary to make the final move of today. His
betrayal of me is insignificant compared with his betrayal of the
public, for he knows as well as I do that it is impossible to prop
erly sift these charges without the aid of the grand jury and a dis
trict attorney thoroughly in sympathy with law enforcement. 1
have exhausted every resource at my command to bring about an
impartial investigation. The public has a right to expect of its
servants that they act in good faith, and has a right to demand
that charges of so serious a nature receive a thorough investiga
tion, and it is to be deplored that one man, or set of men, may be
able to make a travesty of a matter of juch grave and vital public
The halting of this investigation is all the more to be deplored
because the present grand jury is a body of men composed of the
highest type, able, fearless and willing to thoroughly and imparti
ally investigate the charges heretofore made by me, and which I
here reiterate, that vice was being protected in the city of Los
Angeles by the mayor and police commission.

dogged his steps as he came into the

the extent of peering in the restaurant
window and watching Mr. Woolwine
scan the bill of fare.

would say nothing about his action,

Mr. Woolwine showed that he felt
that affairs had relieved him of the

Woolwine refused last night to talk
about his appearance before the grand
jury. It was apparent at the court
house, however, that he had stirred
things up. and that the grand jury
heard his opinion of Captain Fred
ericks in vigorous terms. It is sur
mised that Woolwine "turned himself
loose" and stigmatized the conduct of
Fredericks as crawling and cowardly
in the extreme, asserting his confidence
