M'ALLISTER, BACK
ON HIS OLD SHIP,
HURRIES TO WIFE
Mariner Regains Job as Former
Immigration Inspector Goes
East to Explain
U. S. OFFICIALS ARE SILENT
Ridgeway's Resignation Causes
Commotion, but Federal Men
Won't Talk Publicly
John W. McAllister, whose imprison
ment and prosecution by A. C. Ridge
way, inspector of immigration, is said
to have caused the hitter's resignation
from the government service, will sail
for Honolulu today in command of the
bark Alden Besse. Within several
hours of the mariner's release from his
cell in the county Jail yesterday morn
ing Charles Lelynan of the Indepen
dent Steamship company, owner of
the vessel, ie-employed the captain as
its master.
With fair seas McAllister will join
his wife and children on the islands
within fourteen or fifteen days, after
an amazing series of misfortunes.
They have been without funds for sev
eral months, during the imprisonment
of the husband and father and have
been dependent on the • charity of
friends. . -
McAllister was released on the order
of Assistant. United States Attorney
Frank Stewart. He immediately con
ferred with his attorney, Frank Do
mlnguez, who tver since the man's
imprisonment had left no stone un
turned to procure his freedom. Do
minguez enlisted powerful influences
in the man's behalf. including United
States Senator Frank Flint.
McAllister's release from Jail, fol
lowing thoi abrupt resignation of
Rldgeway, created a sensation in fed
eral circles here. It was the topic of
discussion at the federal building yes
terday. .
T/OCAI- OFFICIALS WON'T TALK
The officials, however, were not dis
posed to express their opinions On Mc-
Allister's release and Ridgeway's res
ignation.
Rldgeway tame from St. Louis to
Los Angeles three years ago. He is
now on his way to Washington, where,
it is said, he was summoned to explain
to the federal officials there the conduct
of his office. • ••;•
Had Ridgeway, it Is said, guarded the
coast as. carefully and diligently as he
watched' the border line, many aliens,
believed by the immigration authorities
to have entered this country.during the
time he held office here, would have
been captured and the operations of a
gigantic smuggling ring,' with head
quarters In China and Mexico, blocked.
The immigration - service, under Its
new regime, has enlisted the aid of a
government revenue cutter," and guards
arc j now stationed at various points
along the coast from San Diego to San
ta Barbara. It is believed by the fed
eral ' authorities that Santa Barbara
and ' Ventura counties have afforded
many landing places for tho smugglers.
The bark A'den-Besse, shortly after
its arrival at San Pedro from Honolulu,
was attached for wharfage fees and
sold by the United States marshal at
public auction. A. W. K. Thompson,
her former owner, had been arrested on
a charge, of embezzling the proceeds
from a cargo of beer. He Is awaiting
trial on the charges.
STOWAWAYS START TnOl'B..E
' Two Japanese stowaways, discovered
by the ship's captain, McAllister,. on
the high seas, on the trip from the Is
lands to Los Angeles, were turned over
by him to Ridgeway, then inspector of
immigration, and wore ordered deport
ed. ' Ridgeway promptly Instructed the
captain to deport the men, and despite
his protests, placed them In the hold
of the Alden Besse. McAllister, with
out funds, was going hungry. His
charges escaped, and he was arrested
and placed in jail. '
Frank Domlnguez gained his release
on $300 ball, and immediately began a
stubborn fight for his release. McAl
lister received a bearing before United
States Commissioner Williams, and de
spite the. fact that United States Attor
ney Mci'ormick. his assistants, Frank
Stewart and Kay llortou, together with
United States Marshal Leo . Young
worth, were loath to press the charges,
owing to the peculiar ! circumstances
surrounding the case, Ridgeway insist
ed on a vigorous prosecution.'-'
_ McAllister was bound over for trial
in the United States district court and
January 2 was lixed as the time for
the hearing to be set. Domlnguez by
a ruse and without the knowledge of
his client caused hkfn to he surrendered
to the federal authorities by his bonds
men, and no sooner had th« captain
been placed in his cell thaft the attor
ney Immediately set to work to bring
his case to the attention Of the author

SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 3, 1910.
LIBERALS OPPOSE
THE REFERENDUM
IN TARIFF FIGHT
Leaders Fear Responsibility of
Representative Institutions
May Be Imperiled
BALFOUR SEES CHAMBERLAIN
Birrell, Chief Secretary for Ire
. land- Recognizes Possibility
. of Universal Suffrage
(Associated Press)
LONDON, Dec. The few days of
discussion in the general election cam
paign leaves it clear the Liberals, as
a party, will have none of a referen
dum on tariff reform.
The Liberal leaders, from Premier
Asquith down, In their public speeches
since the pronouncement of Mr. Bal
four, the opposition leader, of-<r.ls will
ingness to leave tariff reform to a
referendum, have frankly deprecated
the referendum as being unsuited to
Great Britain, and as tending to de
stroy the responsibility of representa
tive institutions.
Meantime, however, further familiar
ity with the Idea has had the effect of
uniting the whole Unionist party and
preta in its favor, and Mr. Baitqur's
courage in adopting it is hailed as
having secured for his party an excel-,
lent prospect of victory.
It is a curious fact that at tiio time
of the rupture of the recent veto con
ference, ail inspired statement in the
Times asserted that. both sides to the
conference had rejected the referen
dum.
011.-MBK_.I~.IN IS CONSULTED
If that bo the case, Mr. Balfour's
decision must have been an after
thought, and it is asserted in well in
formed quarters that he first consulted
Joseph Chamberlain and obtained ids
acquiescence in the proceeding to
shelve temporarily tariff reform by
urging recourse to'the referendum.
Campaigning was again in full blast
tonight. Mr. Balfour, in a speech at
Grimsby, said no . Irishman would
thank the people for an independent
Irish parliament unless it were "ac
companied by a British subsidy."
Sir Edward Gray, the foreign min
ister, said in a speech at Berwick:
--• ' "The greater measure of revolution
is necessary to i^ave the house of com
mons from perishing by the congestion
of business, and to save its reputation
as an imperial authority. There is
nothing in John Redmond's home rule,
proposals which is not in full force" in
the Canadian provinces."
Mr. Birrell, chief secretary for Ire
land, criticising the referendum pro
posal in a speech at Bristol, said it
would have to be accompanied by uni
versal suffrage. There were other
questions, Mr. Birrell said, besides the
tariff and home rule. Were the Tories,
he asked, prepared to submit to a ref
erendum the questions of the navy and
army expenditure, conscription, capital
punishment, the nationalization of rail
roads and the budget? / v
CONTRACTS WILL SOON BE
LET FOR CANADIAN NAVY
First Cruiser Will Be Completed
in Three Years
i OTTAWA, Out., Doc. 2.—The triumph
of the government over the opposition
in the house of commons on the naval
policy and the overwhelming defeat ol
resolutions declaring there should be an
appeal to the people before the creation
of the' Canadian navy means that con
tracts for the construction of Canadian
warships will soon be let.
The contract will call for the con
struction of four cruisers of the Im
prove! Bristol class, and six torpedo
boat, destroyers of the Improved river
class. They are to be built In Canada,
and as there are no yards in the Do
minion capable of doing the work, ne
gotiations are in progress with sev
eral British linns for tho establishment
of yards.
II is calculated it will be three years
before tho first vessel is completed.
The hist of them will bo in the water
at the end of six years.
The estimates, which were today ta
bled In parliament,'contain an item of
$3,000,000 for the first year's operations
in the division of the navy.

TOTAL GROWTH 60.1 PER CENT
Commonwealth Entitled to Three
More Congressmen as Re
sult of Enumeration
(Special to The Herald)
WASHINGTON. Dec. ..-The popu
lation of California i.-i 2.377,543, ac
cording to statistics of the thirteenth
j census made public today. This is an
Increase of 892,496, or 60.1 per cent over .
1,458,053 in 1900. The increase from
1890 to I'M") was 276,923, or 22.9 per cent.
The populations of the counties con
taining the principal cities are: Ala
meda, .46,131; Los Angeles, 504,131;
Sacramento, $67,806; San Francisco,
416.912; Santa Clara. 83,539.
California's growth is the greatest
of any .state in the Union in the last
ten years.
The ugtircs are remarkable as show
ing the great prosperity of the entire
state. California Is unlike some sec
tions of tho east where the cities havo
had their growth at the expense of
the country. In the state the increase
has been almost evenly distributed
between the agricultural districts and
the cities and over all sections. While
San Francisco, Los Angeles, Oakland,
the bay and valley towns have shown
phenomenal growth, tbo farmers havo
drawn their corresponding quota of
immigrants, a substantial class of
settlers, going from the states of the.
east and the middle west, have made
their homes in the country districts
and addedd vastly to the wealth and
prosperity of California by introducing
intensive methods of farming.
It is noteworthy that the growth of
the population since 1800 has greatly
.Increased over that of the preceding
ten years.
THREE MOKE CONGRESSMEN'
As a result of the enumeration Cali
fornia is entitled to three more con
gressmen, if, the apportionment of
representation in the lower house is
made on tho basis of one congressman
for every 230,000 of population. The
state now has eight congressmen. The
dlvison of the total by 220,000 gives a
result of ten, with a remainder of
177,549, on which fraction California
will be. entitled to one more represent
ative. Tho apportionment will be mado
next year by the Democratic congress,
