"The offense in all Its perfidy and
shamelessness," as Thomas Lee Wool
wine characterized the charges he
makes against District Attorney Fred
ericks of compounding a felony while
in office, was the subject of Mr. Wool
wine's speech in University Assembly
hall at Thirty-fifth and Wesley streets
last night. In addition Mr. Woolwine
took up Captain Fredericks' "alleged
answer" in detail and dissected each
statement made by the district attor-
The audience was clearly with Mr.
Woolwlne, and at the close of the
speech he received one of the enthusi
astic receptions which characterize all
hla meetings. His speech is aa follows:
"The speaker has had considerable
experience with persons accused of
serious offenses, and it is but natural
for any man when accused of such a
grave offenso as the one of which I
am now accusing Mr. Frederick* to
squirm and twist and »try to cover up
the real issues. This he has done In
his newspaper interview. My opponent
attempts to reply in the morning
papers and also in one of the afternoon
papers, which is, In fact, no reply at
all and should not be dignified with an
answer. I will quote some portions of
his interview and answer the same, so
that it may be seen that he is not only
deliberately falsifying, but that his
misstatements may be proved by the
records in the court house filed in the
"Now in relation to the first forged
will he has this to say:
Since giving my interview to *he
papers yesterday evening I might
add briefly, but not finally, that
when this case was brought to me
by an old client and friend there
was no claim of a crime or forgery
or a thought of anything but a civil
suit to break a poorly drawn will.
This will was not a forgery and
was never clalmod by anyone to be
a subject for criminal action, either
then or at any other time.
SIGNED BY FREDERICKS
"A sufficient answer to this false
statement is found in a paper filed In
case No. 9984, in which it is alleged,

REVOLUTION FLAMES IN PORTUGAL;
KING PRISONER; LISBON BOMBARDED
Army and Navy Turn Against the Monarchy-Streets of Capital
Scene of Fierce Fighting-Wire Communication with
Royal City Has Been Interrupted
LONDON, Oct. s.—The Standard correspondent of the Reuter
Telegram company confirms the report of a revolution in Portugal,
and adds that the rebels have captured the palace.
According to the Daily Mail, King Manuel is a prisoner, street
fighting has occurred, the warships are bombarding the palace and
that all communication with the capital is cut off.
The Eastern Telegraph company announced this afternoon
the receipt from its station at Carcavellos, eleven miles from Lis

The Daily Mail prints its report of the revolution without a

have been received by the Paris Matin, reading:

A Portuguese merchant in London says he received news of
a plot in Lisbon Monday. The price of Portuguese bonds dropped
heavily on the stock exchange here yesterday.
The long-waited revolution in Portu
gal has broken out. Lisbon Is in the
hands of the Republicans, the royal
standard has been torn from the palace
and the flag of the revolutionists has
been raised in its place.
Some reports have it that King
Manuel Is a prisoner, army and navy

day In the capital. Is likely to spread
quickly throughout the ■ country-
The warships began bombarding the
king's palace at 2 o'clock in the after
noon with small show of resistance, and
the supporters of the monarchy were
forced to capitulate.
It is believed the killing of Prof.

FOR SWEET CHARITY'S SAKE
Tlje first letter of The Herald's mail opened yesterday morning contained a check for
$50 payable to the order of the editor of The Herald and signed by Mr. Isaac Norton, with a
note saying that it was "for the fund to aid the sufferers of the Times' employes." The check
had been mailed on yesterday, as soon as Mr. Norton saw the announcement in the after
noon papers that The Herald had been named by the mayor as one of the recipients of dona
tions of citizens for the relief of the widows and orphans made b,y the awful crime of last
Friday night. The agony that must come to the hapless women and children whose husbands
and fathers were taken away from them, at the thought that their loved ones fell victims to
man's inhumanity to man, will be mitigated by the charity which shows that, after all, there is
infinitely moro^of good than bad in mankind.
We hope every citizen of Los Angeles who feels that he can do so will give some
thing to relieve, in so far as material assistance can, the distress which has been brought upon
so many innocent ones in our city. , . ' sfcj;

Launch Pastime Under Alias of "Peerless"
Used by Bryson, Morris and Leonard
to Bring Explosive to This City
DEEP CONSPIRACY FAST UNFOLDING
Detective Burns, En Route to Los Angeles,
Declares Capture of Men Who De
stroyed Times Building Sure
[Special to Tha Herald]
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4.—The discovery of the launch
Pastime, in which, it is believed, 500 pounds of dynamite was
taken to some point near Los Angeles from Giant, where it was
purchased September 20, and the sudden departure of Detective
William Burns for Los Angeles, accompanied by two of the
shrewdest men on the local force, probably presage the capture of
the persons' responsible for dynamiting the Los Angeles Times.
The fact that the launch was found here indicates that the
dynamite, after being taken south, was cached at some conveni
ent point, and that the launch then returned to San Francisco bay.
It is surmised the men then went to the powder cache and got the
explosive used with such deadly effect.
"I will get the men who set off the charge," Burns said last
night on board the train Lark, bound for Los Angeles.
"There is no question about that. I will get the men who did
the work. The identity, of the men who instigated the plot, how
ever, will take longer tq uncover. It may be four or five weeks be
fore I have all the details of the plot."
The launch Pastime was identified positively this afternoon
by George A. Phillips, shipping clerk for the Giant Powder com
pany, as the one on which the dynamite was taken from the plant
at Giant. The three men who obtained the launch from its owner,
Douglas A. Burrowes of 1314, Linden street, Oakland, answer the
description of the three men who appeared at the powder plant.
The Pastime is moored at the Alameda side of Webster street
bridge across Oakland estuary at the wharf of Captain John Stan
ley. The examination of the craft by Oakland detectives left no
doubt in their minds that it is the one used by the men who ob
tained the dynamite. Screw marks in the name Pastime showed
that another name had been fastened over it. Two pairs of over
alls, such as were worn by two of the men who got the dynamite,
were found in the Pastime. On the evening of September 19
three men inspected the launches in care of Captain Stanley and
picked out the Pastime. They made inquiry about the boat and
were referred by Stanley to the owner. Giving the names of J.
B. Bryce and F. A. Perry, two of the men called on Burrowes the
next afternoon and hired the launch, putting up $500 cash as a de
posit. Their agreement was to pay $30 if they used the craft one
week, and $40 if they kept it ten days. The description of the
men given by Burrowes shows that without any doubt J. B. Bryce
was the man who gave the name of A. J. Bryson, and Robert
Leonard to the powder company employes. The man who claimed
himself to be Perry was the Spanish appearing man who used the
name of William Morris in his dealings with the powder com
Detective William J. Burns went in a launch to the wharf
where the Pastime is tied and passed nearly two hours in inspect
ing the boat and talking to Captain Stanley. They were joined by
Captain Petersen and Detectives Sinclair and Hodgkins and James
McSorley of Oakland. Burns then conferred with Earl Rogers.
A. J. Bryson was a visitor to Rogers today. He is a prominent
mine owner of Dutch Flat and his name was used by the buyers
of the dynamite at Giant to facilitate the purchase of the explosive.
It is evident that the theory of those probing the case is that the
dynamite was used by experienced miners who were employed
for the purpose by the actual conspirators.

The boat was identified today by
George Phillips, chief salesman of the

chased the powder. Detective W. J.
Burns, representing Earl Rogers, who
is conducting the investigation into thn
matter, visited the boat house today
in company with Captain of Detectives
W. J. Petersen of Oakland and several
detectives from Los Angeles.
After a careful examination of tho
launch, and after hearing Phillips' Iden

"There cannot be a doubt about that
