and in as many machines as they de
sire, it is stated. Paulhan wired yes

Evils to Be Fought
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. s.— A direct
attack upon alleged rule of the
Southern Pacific over California,
and a declaration that the state board
of railroad commissioners had "di
rectly and negligently violated Its
duty" of reporting what Were claimed
to be Illegal excesses in freight rates,
and illegal combinations of railroads
and steamship lines, to the interstate
commerce commission, were the fea
tures of the report of the committee on
resolutions of the Democratic state
conference, presented by Theodore A.
Bell, chairman, this afternoon, and
adopted by the conference.
In a summary of the resolutions
recommended for adoption, the com
mittee declared among other things:
"We hold that all reforms must await
the restoration of good government
in California. When the people once
more are in possession of their po
litical rights, they will lie in a position
to take up the more pressing demands
along the following lines:
"First—Retrenchment In public ex
"Second—Equal and uniform tax
"Third— Securing to municipalities,
counties and the state the initiative,
referendum and recall, whose practical
operation has been so clearly demon
strated in Los Angeles.
"Fourth—Tho popular election of
United States senators.
"Fifth— more effective control of
transportation companies, looking to
the prevention v of excessive rates and
The committee recommended the
adoption of the resolutions offered by
A. M. Norton regarding transporta
tion rates, and alleged neglect of the
state board of railroad commissioners;
the resolutions stating that the trans
continental lines had Affected a general
Increase in freight rates amounting to
tt0,000,000 per year; stating further that
illegal combinations of carriers existed,
and that the state board, through wil
ful negligence" filed no complaint with
the interstate commerce commission.
The resolutions recommended that a
committee be appointed to ■'take neces
sary action for the removal •_ of the
members of the state board, and to en
ter complaint with the interstate -com
merce commission. :■■'. i "'■'
Other details of the resolutions pro
vide for the holding of a nominating
convention in Los Angeles on the sec
ond Tuesday in April. _
Among the most interesting features
of the closing day's session was an
address on "Railroad Rates and the
Customs Tariff," by Joseph H. Call of
Los Angeles, which was read by Henry
M. McDonald, also of Los Angeles.
The discussion which ensued was led
,by Beth Mann, attorney for the Ban
Francisco traffic bureau. Many of the
delegates participated. '
The early afternoon session was de
voted to the reading of papers on time
ly political questions and the discus
sion of county organization. The flrst
paper, on "The Income Tax and Cen
tral Bank," was read by James D.
Phelan of this city.
Thomas B, Gibbon of Los Angeles
discussed "The Income Tax and I a i

ize a County" was read by Ben Mad
dux of Visalia and the ensuing dis
cussion was led by John Barneberg of
Witha Jackson day banquet of 200.
the Democratic conference closed this
evening. In the leading address Theo- j
dore Bell said:
"California is not free. For years
our state has surrendered to one power
ful corporation a substantial portion of
her liberty. It is an insult to the man
hood of California that we permit the
making of our laws to be exercised by
a single interest."
D. W. Carmichael of Sacramento was
toastmaster, and Timothy Spellacy and
Isadore Dockweiler of.Los Angeles were
among the speakers.
.. Call % B Paper Strong
Mr. " Call's "address was a sweeping
and vohemont arraignment of make
shift methods in trust legislation, and'
asked the Democratic party for re
forms which really reform. It touched
upon railway and telegraph rates, the
proposed establishment of a commerce
court, customs tariff and duties, har
bors, waterways and rivers, criminal
prosecution of violators of the anti
trust laws and the initiative and ref
erendum. Ilia address was in part as
follows: , ,
"Systems which have become firmly
established affecting our national wel
fare whether wisely or otherwise, can
not be uprooted with impunity.
"Concerning these, it Is not now a
question of what should have been
done, but rather what should wo do
with them now. ■ ' ■
"We should not have acquired the
Philippines, but we have them. The
question now is: How can we get rid
of them, as - well as other territory
which we hold, and which cannot either
by reason of climatic or other condi
tions bo permanently settled by our
people and Americanized? .
"We should not have built up a
standard Of prices far above the world's
level but we have done so. . .
"Thirty years ago railway rates were
largely regulated by competition be
tween railroads and by water competi
tion. Today there is a vast combina
tion of roads which makes the rates.
Combined with the Industrial trusts,
they operate "to Increase the tariff on
Imports and to suppress competition by
" "As to railroad regulation, the Repub
lican leaders admit that the laws upon
these subjects, placed there by the Re
publican party, are Inoperative and a
mere sham. These laws have operated
only to Increase the gross Revenue of

SAX FRANCISCO. Jan. B.—Leading
Democrats of the state of California de
clare the action of President Tatt m
dismissing Gifford Pinehot. chief fores
ter, is one of the greatest blows to na
tional good government that has as yet
been dealt by the Taft administration,
and they assert that this action stumps
thp administration as being under the
domination of corporations. Further,
they assert that the issuo is now
squarely before the American nation as
to whether the sovereign people or tho
corporate interests shall rule.
Following are expressions from prom
inent Democratic leaders denouncing
the action Of President Taft:

J. B. Sanford, state senator— "The re

that the Taft administration is under

Republican party stand by the great
corporations because they have con

Breach in Republican party admittedly becomes worst in his

All party leaders, excepting "Cannon-Aldrich" regulars, con

Prominent partisans at Washington denounce Taft's action
as direct slap in face of Roosevelt and as breach of trust imposed
by Roosevelt in his successor, to whom he virtually gave office.
Insurgents prepare for tremendous decisive battle to depose
Speaker Cannon and henchmen.
Another fight is precipitated in house by action of senate com

this is the most important piece of
conservation work there is. Therefore, (
I propose to know about it, to follow,;
the work you are all doing, to keep :,

None of the officials would discuss
the real and hidden meaning of • Mr. ■'.!■
Pinchofs declaration. His friends like- ■
wi,-, refused to discuss his words, al- ■
though it was generally conceded they
breathed defiance and were in the na- *
ture of an announcement that the for
mer chief forester regarded himself as.
a guardian of what in the recent con
troversy had been called "the Interests
of the people." ,
Echoes of Pinchot's dismissal were .
heard among White House callers to
day, and a number of these frankly
broached the subject. The president,
was not averse to discussing the mat-, ;;
ter along the same lines laid down In
his letter to Mr. Pinchot. *
He is reported to have said with em- •
phasis that even if such a situation -:
could be conceived as his action' of
yesterday necessitating his departure
from the White House today he would
not have done otherwise.
Among the president's caller* were
Senators Flint, Lodge,; Bourne arid
nearly a score of representatives. r
As to the action of the house yester- ,■..
day in amending the Ballinger-Plnchot :

"I want the Investigation to be full >
and thorough," he said to ■ one of f hifi .'.,;,
callers, "and If there is anything in all V

circumstances than if he were still in
