Referendum Causes Alarm
LIBERALS GAIN ARGUMENTS
Winston Churchill Has a Special
Guard of Detectives During
Speech at Dundee
__________ * *
. [Associated Press]
LONDON, Dec. I.—There Is a possi
bility of an unexpected result In the 1
attempt by A. J. Balfour, opposition
leader, to remove tariff reform from
the Immediate field of politics.
The question looms larger than ever
in the campaign tonight, so that Mr.
Balfour himself, In a speech at Read
ing, was fain to explain that his party
had not altered its views on this sub
ject, and that tariff reform was still a
chief plank In the party's constructive
policy; but he explained the Unionists
needed to obtain the formal and ex
plicit consent of the people thereto.
The policy of referendum, he said, was
consistent with the true Idea of pop
ARGUMENTS FOR LIBERALS
Balfour's pronouncement, November
29, that he was willing to submit tariff
reform to a referendum, has rather
sundered than knit his party and has
supplied the Liberals with another ef
fective argument against tariff re
form, namely, that Mr. Balfour has
been compelled to sidetrack it.
Interest ln the speeches tonight cen
tered in Premier Asquith's reply to
Balfour at a meeting in Wolverhamp
ton. The premier said:
"We are living in times of rapid
movement, when It is a relief to wake
any morning and not And some fresh
part of the constitution reconstructed."
He described Mr. Balfour's "about
face" on the question of the reform
of the house of lords and on tariff as
"unique, almost Indecent."
Speaking on the referendum, the
premier said that after a study of the
working of the system In foreign coun
tries he arrived at the conclusion that
It had proved a most unsatisfactory
and disappointing method of ascer
taining public opinion.
Winston Spencer Churchill, home
secretary, addressed several meetings
at Dundee tonight. The home secre
tary had a special guard of detectives

tentions. .' , .

(Special to The Herald)
SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., Dec. I.—
A sensation was caused at the Wom
en's Federation meeting this afternoon
when a woman, a stranger, replying
to an anti-suffragette address by Mrs.
Edward Roberts, indulged in stinging
personalities. Mrs. Roberts had stated
that in a recent visit in London she
had seen a suffragette enthusiast,
dressed in velvet though claiming to
be a millhand, and thought that her
dress belled any existing grievance.
Given three minutes to reply, the
woman, In forceful but excellent Eng
lish, declared herself a New England
millhand, recited the poverty and hard
ships of her class, saying many a
woman had even to sell her soul to
lustful men for bread, "and," vehe
mently declared the speaker, fixing her
flashing eyes on Mrs. Roberts, "I have

anchorage in the outer harbor at San

few minutes the vessels, which had

anchors, and not many minutes later
the reception committee comprising
the most prominent Japanese in Los

extended Its welcome.
Then came the rush. Thousands of
Japanese, representing all the cities
south of Tehachapi, had headed to

Vigorously Assails Record
of United States Senator
PROVINCETOWN, Mass., Dec. I.—
The speaking term of Governor-elect
Foss, against the return of Henry Ca
bot Lodge to the United States sen
ate began here tonight.
In beginning his address, Mr. Foss
said the verdict of the people of
Cape Cod in electing him to congress
last spring, "sealed the doom of Can
nonlsm," compelled the national ad
ministration to seek reciprocal trade
relations with Canada; caused Sena
tors .Aldrlch and Hale to abdicate their
seats in the senate, and gave the coun
try at large the first real hope of tar-
Speaking directly of Senator Lodge,
Mr. Fobs said:
"Working on in silence and secrecy,
he resorts to his self-constituted po
litical machine, the machine which
has dominated Massachusetts politi
cally for years. He is seeking the
counsels of those wham ho serves, the
privileged Interests, and has ignored
the verdict of the people. He has
ignored th.- [act that he should repre
sent the people and considers that he
by the representative of special In
terests, believing that their indorse
ment Is all-sufficient for him."
Mr. Foss assailed Mr. D' dge's rec
ord in. the senate, contending the sena
tor was hostile to reciprocity with
Canada, and had killed the Hay-Bond
reciprocity treaty with Newfoundland.
"What legislation In the interests of
the people bears ids name?" asked Mr.
Foss, who answered his own question
by saying, "only one bill that I re
call bears his name, and that Is the
Force bill a measure that causes
every honest man to blush."

MASTER OF ALDEN

Immigration Chief Succeeded by
Famed Coolie Catcher; Hunt
for Smugglers On
U. S. CUTTER IS ON WATCH
Federal Officials on Government
Vessel After Oriental
With the United States revenue cut
ter Bear, loaded with immigration offi
cers, patrolling the California coast
from the Mexican line north to Santa
Monica in search of Chinese smugglnlg
craft, and wtih Charles T. Connell, a
noted coolie catcher, just arrived in
Los Angeles to bo inspector of immi
gration, vice Arthur Ridgeway, re
signed, affairs are humming in federal
circles and a determined effort by tho
United States government completely
to crush the smuggling traffic In Mon
golians on the Southern California
coast has begun.
The resignation of Rldgeway became
public yesterday. For three years ho
has been inspector of immigration in
Los Angeles. According to current re
port at the federal building yesterday
he Is now on his way to Washington to
confer with authorities there on mat
ters pertaining to the recent conduct
of his office.
Coincident with the resignation of
Rldgeway came the announcement last
night that J. W. McAllister, captain of
the bark Alden Besse, whom Ridker
way was pratlcularly Insistent ln prose
cuting. is to be freed of all charges
and released from prison this morning.
Shortly after midnight United States
Marshal Leo Youngworth confirmed the
report that Washington had ordered
the dismissal of the charges against
McAllister and that the old sea dog
immediately would be released from
custody. It Is reported that the efforts
of United States Senator Frank Flint
at the capital and Attorney Frank Do
mlnguez In this city had a large part
to play in securing the release of the
captain of the Alden Besse. The re
lease of McAllister is said to have a
direct bearing on the resignation of
Rldgeway. McAllister has been held
here for weeks on the charge that he,
allowed two aliens placed in his charge
to escape from custody, although they
were starving at the time and the cap
tain had no food with which to feed
It is stated that there Is no connection
between the resignation of Rldgeway
and the activity in the Chinese smug
gling cases, although an expert in com
bating the smuggling game has been
now stationed here in the person of
The immigration officers who are now
patrolling the coast on the Bear are
searching for two gasoline vessels re
ported to be en route north from Ma
zatlan, loaded with Chinese whom it is
intended to smuggle into this country-
According to the report, the smug
gling craft left Mazatlan some weeks
ago, loaded with Chinese who havo
paid the smuggling fee to be put on
American shores. . )
According to the report, one of the
vessels contains twenty Chinese and
the other eighteen. If the smugglers
should ' succeed in passing the revenue)
cutter it is probable they will run In

and land their human cargoes some

Charles T. Connell, for eight i years
chief inspector of immigration at Tuc
son, Ariz., assumed Ridgeway's for
mer duties as inspector here yesterday.
Mr. Connell was accompanied to his
new post by F. W. Berkshire, super
vising inspector for the immigration
district of the entire southwest, who
will remain with him for several days
until he is familiar with his new duties.
Ridgeway's resignation did not coma
as a surprise to government attaches in
the new federal building. it is said
that complaints have been registered at
Washington against the former official
to the effect that he prosecuted some
cases vigorously and was lax in the
prosecution of others.
Cases In the federal court often re
sulting In dismissals after the defend
ants had suffered long periods of Im
prisonment in the county jail also are
said to have caused criticism of Ridge
