License Ordinance Means Equal
izing of Burden of Taxation
SUSTAIN THE ADMINISTRATION
Results of Tuesday's VotingaWill
Be Step Backward or ; k
; ■;' Forward
* 'The most interesting campaign in
the history of Los Angeles, county will
terminate next Thursday," said an -of
ficial of the Good Government organ
ization. "This election is to decide
whether the people or the corporations
shall control our city. It will decide
■whether the public utilities' political
push or an honest and representative
administration is to deminate the af
fairs of Los Angeles. It is to be a
decisive test of the strength of the cor
porations, many of which have united
in a desperate attempt to defeat the
three popular issues of this campaign.
"Two of these Issues are close to the
hearts of the people. One Issue affects
the pocketbook of every resident of
Los Angeles. I refer to the lighting
rate issue. The city council hag
adopted an ordinance reducing, the
rates from. 9 to 7 cent per kilowatt
hour. The lighting corporations say
that such a rate will ruin them. Yet
they sell their product for 6 cents in
Pasadena, and for much less to the
street railway companies.
"Another issue in this campaign af
fects the purse and interests of nearly
every small corporation and business
concern. This is the business license
ordinance. It means that every busi
ness man shall pay a license in pro
portion to his gross earnings, and the
effect of the ordinance will be to re
duce the license of hundreds of smaller
concerns and increase the license of
several extremely large corporations
and banks. The larger corporations,
however, must realize the justness of
this ordinance, for it will evenly dis
tribute the burden of taxation, decrease
the cost for the smaller concerns and
increase the city's total revenues.
"The third issue, is to determine
whether the present administration
shall be sustained by the people;
whether Barney Healy or 'Doc'
Houghton, the corporation candidates
for the city council, shall be elected, or
whether George H. Stewart and Fred
erick J. "Whiffen, the candidates of the
Good Government organization, the in
fluence of which has rid our city of
graft and corruption and evil Influences,
Khali fill the important vacancies in
that body of lawmakers.
"A great deal depends on the out
come of this election. It means that
Los Angeles is to take another step for
ward, in line with its progressive spirit,
material and moral development and
important undertakings, or that it will
take a step backward, the first back
ward step since it emerged from the
old pueblo atmosphere.
"It means that we shall sustain the
administration of Mayor Alexander,
which has done more for Los Angeles
than any administration we have ever
had. inasmuch as it has razed the.
dens of vice and infamy: it has helped
to rid our city of its evil influences; it
has curbed the power of the corpora
tions which previously controlled our
city council and directed the affairs of
Los Angeles; it has improved many
streets and sections of the city which
in the past were grossly discriminated
against because of the lack of political
•pull' in those districts; it has helped
to facilitate the great aqueduct water
and power plant projects, given a mag
nificent impetus to the harbor and con
solidation plans and made possible the
annexation of such beautiful and de
sirable suburban cities as Hollywood,
which never would have consented to
come beneath our protective municipal
wing had it not been for the fact that
good government principles, purity,
progress and honesty were favored by
this city in the election of Mayor Alex
ander and the present administration.
"Or, on the other hand, this election
means that we will revert to other
days; that we are not in sympathy
with this progress, this municipal
purity and development; thai wo do not
give sanction to the high aims, the pure
purposes, the progress, self-sacrifice
and devotion to public duty manifest
by Mayor Alexander, who, although
past 70 years old, is devoting his re
maining energies honestly and efficient
ly to the betterment of the city which
he has helped to build— city of
which he is an honored pioneer and in
Which he has always manifested a
loyal and patriotic interest.
"If we elect Houghton and Healy, the
•push' candidates, it will indicate that
the push, and not purity, controls and
that the fight is not yet won. It will
be a blow at the honesty and self
sacrificing labors of this old man.

the fight is won. This election will de

COMMITTEES AT WORK ON
CHARGES MADE BY GORE
Members of House Will Investi

WASHINGTON, June 26.—The two
Investigating committees, one ap
pointed in the senate and one in the
house, as a result of Senator Gore's
charge of attempted bribery in con
nection with Indian contracts in Okla
homa, are already at work.
There will be a meeting tomorrow of
the senate committee, of which Sena

The house committee will meet in
Oklahoma City at a date not yet fixed,
nnd while there will inquire carefully
into the question of misconduct on the

Representative Burke of South Da
kota, chairman of the house commit
tee, is also chairman of the Indian af
fairs committee, which has Kiveiij
hearings on the question of disposing

NEW YORK TONGS
WAR; THREE SHOT
Hostilities Among Chinese Break
Out on Crowded Street;
Many Shots Fired
NEW YORK, June Tong war
that sleeps but never dies, in spite of
threats, promises and solemn treaties,
broke out today in Chinatown. In
Ninety-second street three Chinese
were shot, two of them fatally, and
more than forty shots from heavy
caliber revolvers spattered against the
bricks or pavements.
In three minutes following, seven
Chinese were arrested. It happened
that the 200Uth anniversary of the
feunding of the Society of the Four
Brothers fell on this day, and in its
honor the members were to give a
banquet in Pell street at 5 o'clock. A
, monster flag scalloped in green floated
1 from the banquet hall, and guests be
gan to arrive early from all parts of
the city and from neighboring towns.
It was in the midst of a restless,
shuffling throng, sown thick with
policemen, that the shooting began.
There is no certainty of the precise
provocation, but It is generally under
stood in Chinatown that the Ong Le
ong tong did not relish the fact that
Chu Hen, recently acquitted of the
murder of an Ong Leong tong man,
was to be the guest of honor.
The Hip £>irtg tong, the Ong Leong
tong and the Four Brothers occupy
each its own street, and no prudent
member of one society trespasses on
the territory of another. Pickets had
been posted today at the end of Pell
street by the Four Brothers, and
scouts of the Ong Leong tong pa
trolled the adjacent boundary of Mott
street. There were more policemen
on the beat than usual, because of the
banquet. Somebody stepped over the
line. Somebody began to shoot. It is
doubtful if any white man will ever
know who trespassed and who pun
ished, because the rain of bullets came
too fast from too many directions for
the eye to catch the first flash.

The accident in which Kreider,
Woodward and the little girl were in
iured happened at Daly street and
North Uroadway. Woodward was
driving his auto, in which were Mr.
and Mrs. Kreider and their niece. He
was driving in Broadway. In some
manner he lost control of the motor
car in coming down the long, sloping
hill and crashed into an inbound Mt.
Lowe car at the Daly street crossing.
The auto struck the forward steps
of the car and the occupants of the
automobile were thrown forward. The
impact shattered the glass wind shield
of the auto and the flying glass caused
most of the injuries.
The steps of the car were torn loose
nnd the front of the auto was dam
aged. None of the occupants of the
car was thrown out.
Mrs. Kreider escaped injury and ac
companied the others to the county

TO PROBE ENTIRE
RECORD OF DIXON
Police Commission Will Go into
All Charges Made Against
Interesting developments are ex
pected this morning at the adjourned
session of the police commission when
Capt. C. E. Dixon will be tried on a
number of charges which have grown
out of complaints preferred against him
by W. D. Gage, proprietor of a South
Broadway rooming house.
A number of witnesses have been
subpoenaed both by the prosecution
and by Dixon, and a thorough investi
gation will be made by the police com
mission into the various charges which
have been filed against Dixon.
When the commission adjourned last
Wednesday after taking testimony re
garding the charges of Gage against
Pixon it invited all who had accusa
tions to make against the captain to
file them before this morning.
Since Wednesday Deputy City Prose
cutor Sidney Reeve, with Chief of
Police Galloway, has been making an
investigation of the charges against
Dixon, and both officials will be ready
to prosecute the case thoroughly when
the trial is resumed this morning. It
is not thought that another postpone
ment will be taken, as different mem
bers of the commission yesterday
stated the hearing must be ended.
The first matter that will probablybe
taken up is the alelged criticism made
by Dixon against Chief Galloway in
which he is alleged to have made some
uncomplimentary remarks concerning
the latter's ability to run the depart
Ernest R. Werdin and Edwin .Tergen
sen will be called as witnesses to tes
tify regarding this charge.
Jergensen will be questioned regard
ing an interview he had with Dlxon
relative to the lattei Js ignorance of the
raid conducted on several immoral
houses by Chief Galloway two weeks
TO ATTACK rCTUTY SQVAD
It is understood an attack will be
made by the commission on the testi
mony of certain members of the so
, called "purity squad" relative to the
reputation of Gage's rooming house.
A witness, whose identity has been
withheld by the prosecution, will be
called on to give testimony to the ef
fect that he called at the office of Dlxon
and offered to furnish him with infor
mation regarding certain disorderly
houses and that his proffer was not ac
cepted. Sergt. Adams and Sam Solo
man, private watchman, formerly in
the employ of Nick Oswald and Tom
Savage, will be called as witnesses con
cerning this matter.
The entire police department and
many city officials are showing great
interest in the outcome of the hearing.
Bert Parker, whose resignation as
patrolman from the department was re
jected by the commission last Monday,
and who was cited to appear tonight
and show cause why he should not be
dismissed from the department, will
also be called as a witness. Parker was
a member of Dlxon's "purity squad"
until a few weeks ago, when he was
transferred to a beat by Chief Gal
Because of the numerous affidavits
that have been filed with the commis
sion and the vast amount of testimony
to be taken, it is feared the hearing
will not be completed today. It is
likely that a portion of the testimony
will l>e taken in executive session.
BROWNE JURY* FIFTY HOURS
OUT, REACHES NO VERDICT
State's Attorney Says They
Stand 11 to 1 For Con
CHICAGO, Juno 26.—Apparently no
nearer a verdict than at the beginning
of their deliberations, the jury in the
Lee O'Neil Browne senatorial bribery
case la still out, having passed the
fiftieth hour ;it 6 o'clock tonight.
State's Attorney Wayman maintains
the jury is now eleven to one for con
viction, and that it has stood thus
from the early balloting.
At midnight the jury had been out
fifty-six hours. During all this time,
penned in a room so small that they
cannot get any exercise, the jurymen
seemed content to remain.
Not a word has come from them, and
not once since the case was given in
to their hands has there been a re
quest for instructions.
Judge McSurly said tonight he would
allow the Jury to deliberate "a couple
of days longer," and then if he finds
it hopelessly divided will discharge it.
If he finds, however, that the situation
is as the prosecution maintains that
tthe jury is eleven to one for a verdict,
whether acquittal or conviction, he
will send it back for further delibera
tion. Judge McSurly stated he would
not compel the Jury to remain in de
liberation over the Fourth of July.
"I shall resist any effort to have
the jury discharged if it stays out
until the Fourth of, July," said State's
Attorney Wayman today. "It cannot
be possible that twelve men would dis
agree on the evidence of bribery placed
before that Jury. No matter how long
the Jury stays in those chambers, T
shall resist a motion to have Up body
