RECORD HOLDER
HERE AND MANY
FLYERS COMING
James Radley, Noted English
Aviator, Arrives to Take
Part in Big Meet
Finance Committee Meets and
Plans to Raise $100,000
Guarantee
The Palace hotel might not look it,
but it is a huge birdsnest to which are
coming all the migratory birdmen of
the air. James Radley, an English
aviator who holds the record for the
fastest mile ever made in the air over
a straightaway course, made In a Ble
rlot in 45 4-5 seconds at Lanark, Scot
land, in August, is now at the hotel
and has been in communication with
the offlcials of the Fan Francisco avi
ation committee regarding a flight at
the January meet. Several managers
and aviation enthusiasts are at the
hotel and more are expected -Srithin a
few days.
The finance committee of the San
Francisco businessmen's committee,
which is planning the jrreat January
meet, met at luncheon yesterday at the
St. Francis and Chairman F. E. Scot
ford announced the selection of the
executive committee which will have
< harge of the meet.
riVAXCK COMMITTEE
The finance committee consists of
Henry T. Scott (chairman), Wellington
Cregg Jr.. Henry Dernham, James'
Wood, Leopold Michels and M. H. Rob
bins Jr. They canvassed a list of
names of businessmen who will be ap
pointed to see the men in their trades
?.nd solicit subscriptions for the avi
ation race:. While subscriptions will
be received and at least $100,000 raised,
It is believed that this sum will only
be needed as a guarantee to insure the
$50,000 in prizes and the expenses of
the meet. It is felt that the aviation
meet will more than pay for itself, of
Ffli high a class will be the flyers who
will appear in San Francisco.
The following citizens have been
chosen as the executive committee for

HIGH FLIERS COMING
Among the aviation men in the city
yesterday were Roy Knabenshue, man
ager for the Wright brothers. and
George Harrison, formerly connected
with the Wright staff and a member
cf the national council of the Aero
club of America for California. " R. R.
Young, manager for Glenn Curtiss. is
expected ta arrive in the city today,
and Hubert Latham, the famous bird
man, !s due Thursday. Radley, the
Englishman, and Willard of the Curtiss
team fly at Stockton Thursday, Friday
and Saturday of this week.
George Harrison, the national com
n;neeman, made a bright prediction
yesterday of the interest that will be
r-m:sed by the San Franr-isco avia
t'on m^et and of the higrh type of fly
ing th;it will be witnessed in San
Prapcfsco when the famous aviators
are here.
"An aviation meet' will be s* tre
mendous ad for San Francisco and
California," said Harrison. "The avia
tor? who appeared In the east, par
ticularly th* 1 foreign aviators, are look
ing toward California as a place of
wonderful opportunity for them. Cali
fornia hospitality ousrht to be ex
t*n<it>4 to them, especially to the for
eign aviators, who are, in fact, repre
sentatives of. their countries, England
and Franre.
"The difference between tin* flying
that is possible now and that which
could \u25a0>>*> afr-.ompis*;hed a year ago is
the difference between aviation and
ballooning. The aviators can fly in
a gs> now; they did at Baltimore.
The fact that San Francisco can hold
a winter meet will b<» a wonderful ad
vertisement to the city and the state.
It will bring people out to San Fran
cisco from the east — people who have
wanted to see aviation and who have
wanted to pee California. Here will
b*> their double opportunity to see
b r ith the state and the sport.
>f IKVTIFIC EXHIBITION
"There is a great chance for the
San Franrisco meet to break away
from the traditions of other meets and
to grivp a program that will bring out
the full commercial value of the- ma
chines and show their capabilities.
There can be races In which several
machines compete, \u25a0 the machines can
co-operate .with the army and navy,
and 1n many ways ran be made of tre
mendous scientific value. As the first
meet in the year 1911- it can be made
the model meet and establish prece
dents -which will be followed out in
the meets held during the year. Every
one in -California should boost the San
FranriFco aviation meet, as it will be
rnif of the best boosts for the Panama-
Pacific fair." - x
Harrison is a member of th«» United
States aeronautical reserve, an organ
ization of inventors, aviators and
those interested in the sport who
pledge themselves to co-operate with
the government in time of war by
means of the aeroplane.
Roy Knabenshue, the Wright broth
ers' manager, would not say definitely
that the Wright team would be here,
as the agreement has not yet been
drawn up, but he said that the
Wrights were anxious to appear here
and he thought that the team would
fls'. If the Wright team appears — and
Chairman Seotford is sure that it
will — Brookins, Hoxey and Parmalee
will be seen.
Knabenshue stated that the aviators
were anxious to fly in San Francisco.
He said that in addition to the aviators
already mentioned .as coming west
Captain Thomas S, Baldwin is ex
pected, as is Gus Posjt, the balloonist
who recently sailed from St., Ixiuis
into the wilds of Canada and captured
the record for distance flights. Post
is now an aviator. Sam Perkins, "the
kite king." also is expected.

Walkout Follows Board's Re-
fusal to Recognize Union
ALAMEDA. Nov. 22. — Four linemen

day, while the union scale is $4.25.
There are four non-union linemen at
the plant and Superintendent Kahn de
clares that the plant will be conducted
as an "open shop" and more non-union
men employed.
Superintendent J. 8.- Kahn said that

that the local plant be unionized was
recently denied by the electricity com
mission.
FISHERMAN TRIES TO
DRAW YOUNG CANNON
Policeman Glad That Gun Was
Unwieldy
Joseph Sepaloto, a . fisherman, was
fined $100 or 50 days by Police Judge
Shortall yesterday. He was convicted
of carrying a concealed weapon, which,
when exhibited by the arresting officer,
looked like a vest pocket edition of a
cannon.
Sepaloto and several other fishermen
were engaged in a fight' in Bay street
between Stockton and Grant avenue
Monday night, and when Policeman O.
T. Cox came up to the fighters the
fisherman tried to unlimber the "gun,"
but was too slow. Sepaloto, explained
that he carried the gun to shoot seals
when they get in his nets off the Cliff
house. .
"You should be able to blow a whale
to shreds or sink a warship with that
gun," remarked the court, ''and, besides,
you have no right to overtax your
strength carrying it around the streets,
I must find you guilty."

MAN'S HEAD SEEMS
LIKE DOG TO WOMAN
Scream Emphasizes Mistake and
Sleeper Pays Fine
A kindly disposed but near sighted
woman furnished a pillow for his head
when he went to take a nap in the ferry
building late Monday night, according
to Hageland Barcalow of Richmond,
who was before Judge. Conlan yesterday
for beingdrunk in a public place.
Barcalow testified that he started to
go back to j Point Richmond. "Sunday
nlght, but missed the last boat. In order
to be on. time. Monday night he "werit : to
lhe.~ ferry an hour early. He became
sleepy and curled up ,on a bench, and
the kind woman held his head. Then
he was arrested.
- "That i is almost true,"' sarcastically
remarked Policeman MpNamara, who
made the: arrest. "Barcalow settled
himself ; on the -bench to sleep and de
liberately placed his head in the lap of
the strange woman. She thought it
was some friendly little dog and
stroked Barcalow's head. It was soft
for him, sp he. fell asleep. ; I was pass-
Ing. She looked down and found her
mistake. With a shriek she jumped
up and rolled on the floor.".
'"I don't remember that part of it."
said the prisoner, as he scratched his
<head thoughtfully.
Barcalow was fined $10 and told to
\u25a0depart for Richmond.

•: LONDON! Nov. : ; 22.— The Apolitical
.campaign is, being waged with a fierce
ness almost unknown, in London,, both
by\ politicians on the stump and the
suffragettes on 'the battlefield.
The battle of Downing Street, fought
this afternoon .when, .several .hundred
suffragettes attempted to . storm the
premier's residence,~assaulted Asquitli
and Augustine Birreli; chicf \u25a0 secretary
for Ireland, and _ broke : many windows
in the government offices, surpassed
all previous spectacles '. of the sort.
About 150; women." and "men
supporters are in 'the police ; station to
night. • • : \u25a0 -\u25a0 :
After an- announcement by the
prime minister in the house of com
mons that if he were still in power at
the next session Vof parliament, vthe
government would give facilities' for
the consideration of a suffrage; bill, a
large body of %yomen, inflamed' rather
than placated by this promise, which
-was characterized as "nothing, more
nor less than ah insult to .the .cause,"
left Caiton hall in search' of the
premier.' . ' ' " " ' ' -
WOJIAX STRIKES PREMIER ,
*. They came upon .him on the way to
Downing street and immediately
formed a hostile cordon around As
quith, who recently has resorted to all
kinds of subterfuges to keep himself
clear of the 'hands of "the 'militant
women. One of them; Henrietta Wil
liams, struck the government leader
and the premier -would have fared bad
ly had not large detachments of po
lice come to his rescue.
The police had great difficulty in put
ting down "the. disorders and many of
the women had to be dragged., from
the scene with clothes half torn from
their ba"cks.
The rioting continued until' evening
when \u25a0 squads of women attacked , the
residences of Sir Edward Grey, -the
foreign secretary;" of Winston Spencer
Churchill, the home secretary; and of
Lewis Havcourt,; secretary, of state for
the colonies. -;, Stones , crashed through
the windows of the houses, Sir Ed
ward Grey's bearing the brunt of the
attack.
One band spied Birreli strolling through
.St. James Park to the Athenaeum club,
and swooped down upon • the . aged
statesman, knocking' his hat over ' his
eyes and kicking him about' the legs.
When help came and the women were
driven off, Birrell-limped to his motor
car on the arms of policemen.
Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst, leader of
the sueragettes. was among those taken
to jail. Her sister, Mrs.- Grant," denied
admittance, threw' a missile through
the jail window. She was also incar
cerated.. Miss Grace' Johnson was the
only :'An»ericarP<? a. rested-."^- Miss r: Annie
Martin of/ Nevada," who *was/.taken to
the police* station Friday and was re
leased, was not among those arrested
tonight.
Churchill addressed a big meeting
this evening from which several men
adherents of the women's cause were
dragged out by the police.
HOME RULE A\ ISSUE
Churchill strongly defended the pro- ;
priety of Irish-Americans contributing
to the home rule cause. , The cry of
American dollars was likely to be used
as a retort by the. liberals, he said,
since Waldorf Astor had announced
that he was again the , candidate of
the. conservatives for Plymouth.
Battersea promises to be an inter
esting campaign ground. Sir John Har
'rington, .who married the'daughter of
Senator McMillen, having thrown down
the gauntlet as the conservative can
didate to John Burns, president of the
local government board. *
The principal move of the day was
Premier Asquith's attempt to placate
the latorites by promising to introduce
legislation, solving the difficulty which
has arisen on account of the Osborne
judgment, which was that labor unions
could not use their funds' for the pay
ment of their representatives in par
liament.
The government- proposed legislation
giving^ to trades unions the right to
provide funds for use in parliamentary
and municipal campaigns • and for the
support of -labor's representation pro
vided there was no compulsion on mem
bers of the- unions to contribute to
such funds. • I
The labor party met tonight and de- |
clared the scheme suggested' by the j
premier wholly unsatisfactory.
The United .Irish league has issued '
a manifesto against the \u25a0lords, calling
landlordism and the house »of lords
synonymous. . ;
REDMOXD ARRAIGXS LORDS I
The manifesto, which- is signed by j
John E. Redmond and T. P. „ O'Connor, j
is a violent arraignment of the Jiouse
of lords as the "only obstacle to home
rule.* It describes Lansdowne^: as an
"Anglo-Irish landlord," whose family
name is -written deep : in? that coffin
ship, the Lansdowne hospital ward, and
in thousands of unmarked graves where
perished, our people* driven -from the
Lansdowne property in the days of the
famine. I .; . -..•;./• -' , \u25a0 \u25a0 ;.•<\u25a0', .•../-.; .- /
"At : the door of the -house of lords,"

crease In landlord power, and for the
rejection of all measures for tenant re
lief, whereof the , great famine j and the

FAITHFUL WIRE
WINS FIGHT TO
FREE FORGER
Honeymoon Broken in San Fran
cisco by Arrest Is Renewed
at Prison Gate
Convict Rearrested, but Spouse
Gains Release; Woman Di
vorced Wealthy Minister
j [Special D'nbatch to The Call]
| PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 22.— T0 be re
.'leased from the eastern penitentiary
'after serving a four year sentence for
robbery, meeting his wife, who had
: come from her San Francisco home to
; greet him and complete the honeymoon
! that had been interrupted by her hus
| band*3 arrest, then rearrested on. a
I second charge of forgery, held to await
'requisition papers by Magistrate Scott
j in the central court at the morning
hearing, and then sent away a free
j man by the same magistrate in the
afternoon, is the record of the day
Hved by Henry L. Wilson.
At the close of the morning hearing
lit "was a determined wife that, set
j about the removal of the charge which
i was brought by lowa authorities.
At the close of the afternoon session
of the central court, when Captain of
Detectives Souder presented Magistrate
Scott with the telegram from Cedar
Rapids that told that the charge in that
city was not to be followed up and re
quested the discharge of the prisoner,
the wife, who had borne up so bravely
from the moment her husband had
been taken away from her at the peni
tentiary gate, gave a cry of Joy and'
fainted in the witness room. The re
leased man bowed to the magistrate,
hastened from the courtroom and
clasped the fainting woman in his
arms.
It was while Wilson was employed as
a clerk in a Boston steamship com
pany's office that he first met the
woman who is now his wife, and who
at that time was the young and hand
some divorced wife of Rev. Frederick
Webbe, a prominent and wealthy New
England minister. The meeting of four
years ago in the steamship office whero
"Wilson booked the woman's passage
was love at first sight. The couple
were married and left Boston for this
city on their honeymoon trip.
While here they stopped at a local
hotel. At the end of their stay Wil
son presented a check for $300 made
out in the name of former Governor
Curtis Guild of Massachusetts. The
check waa cashed and the man with
his wife left for San Francisco. Wil
son was arrested in that city and
brought back to Philadelphia. His
wife accompanied him and, securing
the best attorneys, fought a hopeless
case. Wilson was committed to t.he
penitentiary for a sentence of four
years.
