McNAB WILL BE
"PUT TO SLEEP"
AT CONVENTION
Bell Says Scot Can Have All
Sao Francisco Delegation
and Be Beaten
*A Fair City Boss, but Lacking
f; First Qualification of a
State Leader"
Napa Reformer Makes Cutting
Comment on Criticisms of
Local Bourbon
Theodore A. Bell, who was away
from home when Gavin McNab, in
j the flush of primary victory, told
what he thought of the beaten Bour
bon rebels, has returned to take a
hand in the battle of epithets.
McNab, it will be remembered,
characterized the Bell men as "pre
datory politicians" and the "carpet
bag association of Napa," and called
Bell himself "a. grand Turk," "a
chronic office seeker," a "political
hack" and "a sophomore who makes
memorized speeches."
Now comes Bell with the retort that
consistency is not among McXab's jew
elry, that he assumes to dictate, that
he is either grossly ignorant or a will
ful deceiver, that he Is In politics for
retaining fees, that he seems to be on
close terms with Ruef and that he is
churlish.- \u0084 • \u25a0
The tournament of adjectives is mer
rily on. In an interview, given out yes
terday Bell said:
V "What do I think about the outcome
&:<l the democratic primaries in San
Francisco? Well, to tell you the
truth, I have not lost any sleep over
the results. We can give McNab all
the delegates from San Francisco and
•till control the Stockton convention
•with a. margin that will put McNab to
sleep, if he wishes to show his strength
en a roHca.ll.
**I have re»d with do little amuse
ment his comments on the day follow
ing the primaries. : Consistency evi
dently does not constitute any part of
his Jewelry. For years he has as
sumed the right. to dictate to the dem
ocracy of -'the- 'interior and now he
challenges the right of any one out
side the city to participate In the selec
tion of delegates to the state conven
tion from San Francisco. He also en
gages In a discourse on gratitude.
'•I wish he would point out just.where
I owe him anything.
"From the time of my election to
congress in 1902 up to the convention
at Fresno last May his attitude toward
me was a simple ignoring of the fact
that I was doing my share of the work
in tlie party. It was his intention to
prevent, if possible, my selection as a
delegate at large to the national con
9 DID NOT ASK COXSEXT
"He has tried to make it appear that
he was responsible for the guber
natorial nomination given to me in
1906. This is absurd, for I neither
consulted him nor asked his consent
In accepting what was tendered to me
without any solicitation on my part.
"During the gubernatorial fight
about the only thing that he did was
to advise me to keep out of San
Francisco, saying that he would turn
over S.OOO majority on election | day.
He sent word to me eight days before
election at Sacramento, through Tom
G^ary, that when I reached San Fran
cisco" on the following Thursday I had
better denounce the action of Ruef in
attempting to remove Langdon from
the office of district attorney."
"This concurred with my own ideas,
for I believed Ruefs action to be a
most outrageous thing, and so in all
three of my San Francisco meetings I
severely condemned Ruef.
"A thousand witnesses can be brought
to testify to this fact. McNab claimed
et that time to be the leader in San
Francisco, but he failed to show up at
any of my San Francisco meetings or to
give me an opportunity to see him per-
I sonally. His opposition to Ruef at that
time «"as just strong enough to cause
him to send me a message through
Gears', and then to keep out of the way
and avoid any detailed discussion with
me concerning the situation In San
Francisco. McNab was either grossly
Ignorant of the real situation, or else
he willfully deceived me Into believing,'
right up to election day. that my plu-
Tality there would not be less than
S,OOO. The trouble with McNab is that
he has cared more to maintain his local
organization that he has for the success
of the party at large. He liked to have
it appear that he was a state boss In
order to" bolster, up his bossship at
home. The patronage of a few munici
pal offices has looked bigger to him
than a victory in the governor's office.
He makes a fair city boss, but does not
possess the first qualifications of a
state leader. He prides himself that he
has never sought public office for him
self.

BRYAN'S FIRST
GUN IS TRAINED
AGAINST TARIFF
Democrat Opens Campaign in
lowa With Attack on
- \ "Revision" Idea
Says the Republican Party Is
Obligated to Protected
Interests
Bourbons Alone to Be Trusted
With Work of Equalizing
Burden of Taxes
': DES MOINES, Aug. 21.— Compar.
ing the attitude of the | two" dominant
parties on the tariff question, William
J. Bryan, the democratic candidate, for
the presidency, at the baseball park
in, this city tonight, before a vast
audience, fired the firsts gun of \u25a0 the
campaign. : :S-^ \ '
While he was speaking the tempo
rary platform, on which were seated
several hundred people, collapsed. No
body was hurt and there was no panic, 7
but Mr. Bryan was interrupted for
five minutes while arrangements were
made for him to continue.: speaking
from the grandstand, where he "fin
ished his address. He attacked the re
publican tariff revision and asked. If
the democratic party was not justified
when it included in its platform the
declaration that the people cannot safe
ly intrust the execution of this impor
tant work to a party which 1b "so
deeply obligated. to the highly pro
tected interest as the republican party.
"The .whole aim of our party," he
said in summarizing, "Is to secure jus
tice in taxation. "We believe that each
individual should contribute to the
support of the government in propor-'
tion to the benefits whichr he receives
under the protecting government. We
believe that a revenue tariff, approached
gradually, according- to the plan -laid
down In our platform, will equalize the
.burdens of- taxation.; If the republican
P3rty . 'is ito .--have the support of , the
people who flnd . a pecuniary profit jin
the exercise of the taxing power, as
a private asset In their.* business, -we
"X>ught to have the support of that large
majority of. the people who produce .'the
nation's wealth in time of peace,-pro
tect tlie nation's flag in time of war
and ask for nothing from: the govern
ment but even . handed justice."
Mr. Bryan, accompanied" by Mayor
Frank W. Brown of .Lincoln, Private
Secretary Robert F. Rose and several
correspondents, arrived? at .9:30 "o'clock
this ; morning, two hours later than the
schedule called for.'. ,:At the station to
meet him were Mayor "A. ; J. JMathls of
Dcs Molnes, Mayor Sears' of Sioux City,
Jerry Sullivan, National \u25a0 Committeeman
"Wade, Fred E. White, democratic can
didate for governor, and; many other
prominent lowa democrats.
After luncheon Bryan rested for
several hours, and: tonight, escorted
by the Young Men's Bryan club and
many, prominent .democrats, he .pro
ceeded to the baseball park,; where he
received an ovation" before commencing
his . remarks. . Upon the conclusion J. of
his tariff speech he addressed an over
flow' crowd in . the Auditorium. "" His
speech in part was as follows: '
Mr. Chairman, Ladles "and Gentle
men: In my notification speech -.1
stated that as the campaign progressed
I would discuss the question, "Shall the
People Rule?" as.lt applies to the va
rious issues Involved in this campaign.
1 begin with the , tariff question, ; be
cause it is the most lasting of our
economic questions and the-*one 'upon
which the leading parties have . most
frequently opposed each other. -- •
Secretary Taf t refers : to \ his : subject
briefly in r his notification speech — only
briefly — but as I shall quote such
passages from his , speech as , are , per
tinent to this discussion it Is not neces
sary to read his remarks in full. ;"-\u25a0"
It will be noticed that the republican
party has abandoned the earlier argu
ments advanced in . suport ; of a high
tariff. We hear-no more of' the -"infant
industries," that must be tenderly, cared
for "until they can stand , uponj their
feet"; there" is no- suggestion that the
"foreigner pays the tari ft," and nothing
about the "home market.". .These catch
phrases have had their day— they are
worn out and cast aside. The republican
leaders -.are. no v longer.: arrogant - and
insolent; they can not' longer defy tariff
reform. Their plan now Is to seem to
yield without really yielding..,-. .;;--<;<
• I . submit, that the - democratic-.plat
form accurately described 'the
lican position when it refers to "the-be
lated promise" made by the republican
leaders as ,"a. tardy recognition? of ; the
righteousness: of " the '- democratic-posh
tionon this question."" If former* re
publican promises ; had been . fulfilled >it
might not .have j been * necessary to thus
strengthen the promise 'made: this year.
The use \ of , the words . "immediately
after the inauguration"" ls'* evidence
that the republican leaders are con
scious .; that the patience '\u25a0 of; the \u25a0* public
has been strained '--.to J the -; point -' 'of
breaking, and it is almost pathetic -to
note the solicitude which they; now; feel
about doing a thing which, but for will
ful ineglect, might have -been \u25a0 done r, at
any»tlme during the last-10 years. , /;\u25a0„«;
. Are we not- justified :in s saying that
"the people- can \u0084 not \>i safely,; ; intrust
the I execution of ; this vimportant \u25a0 work
to a party which is so deeply, obligated
to '. the highly protected interests- as iis

Hides Dishonor From Mother
With Unused Marriage
License
Another page of shame and dis
honor, of brutal betrayal and de
sertion in the life and loves of Po
liceman Edward T. Davey was
laid open before the police com
missioners and Chief Biggy yes
terday when they learned that at
3543 Twenty-fourth street there
lay dying Miss May Austin, a
former love, whom he had used
and discarded and who, even at
death's door, waited in futile long
ing for the fulfillment of his false
promises.
All unconscious is she that
Davey. to keep out of prison, has been
forced to marry Ethel C. Tonga,' an
other, at. his .victims. Ignorant- Is- sa»
of his perfidy, of the black shame of
her dishonored name. Her trust in him
Is- sublime, perfect, absolute." -Last*
night she was prepared for death. The
rested priest hovered over the dying
form murmuring of the greater, holler
love, but in her hallucination she called
out for her girlish love, for the man
whom in her delirium she named "hus-.
band."
"Mother, is he coming?" she gasped.
The mother, burdened with 73 years of
life and a crowning sorrow, patted the
poor, thin hands flung over the cover
let.
"Yes,- dearie, he's coming: don't
worry, child, he Is coming."
The- mother knew that he. would
never come, that her daughter had been
cast aside, and though the bitterness
and very shame of it nigh choked her.
she bent over the pallid face, a oo thing:
with words of comfort, giving up from
her great store of mother love.
The priest. Father Harnett of , St.
James' parish, concluded the last rites,
gave ' what comfort he could and de
parted. All through the night the
mother watched by the daughter. keep-
Ing from her the horrible truth.
Through the long stretches she sat by
the bedside, guarding, ever guarding,
against a whisper of the false \u25a0 prom
ises, of vows broken, of pledges for
gotten. Never in ' this world will the
girl know that Davey but played with
her as he played with others. Hers
at least will be paltry satisfaction of
dying in the belief that she was loved
by him, trusting in him to the fullest
extent.
Once the , girl woke from a . brief
sleep. "Has he come, mother?" she
asked.
"Not yet, dearie, not yet; but he win.**
"He will come, won't he, mother?"
"Of course he will, child. * Tomorrow
perhaps. It is night time now."
"Yes, mother — night time.'* hms
WAS OXLYA CHILD
The story is as old as the oldest
love and new as the latest sin. In ; it
there is nothing more sensational than
a broken- heart, ; nothing more startling
than a trusting : grrL Sha . met Davey

• "I— l— do not .know ..his name.? , ' ..
-The mother, had to be deceived. . That
was evident. Whereupon Davey went
the limit. ~ He 'procured a marriage 1 li
