Former Governor Apologizes to
Priest After Calling Reso=
lulion a Fake
OAKLAND, Nov. 22. — Former Gover
nor George C. Pardee apologized to
Rev. E. P. Dempseyin a lively meeting
of the directors of the chamber of com
merce today after Pardee harshly criti
cised a resolution offered by the
Seventh Street improvement club.
Father Dempsey appeared on a com
mittee of five with C. L. Strom, Louis
Schaffer, Charles P. Pierce and George
L. Yager, members of the club, to ask
for the indorsement of the chamber of
a resolution favoring a 50 year, fran
chise in Seventh street to the Southern
Pacific for its new electric system.
This report had been referred. 1 to the
railroads and transportation commit
tee of the chamber, of which Pardee is
chairman. The other members are
Theodore Gier, Georg-e E. Randolph and
O. F. Olsen. This committee reported
adversely today. on the indorsement and,
Pardee, in defense of the stand of the
committee, stated that the franchise
was one of great value in which the
entire city was interested and that any
compensation for the franchise was not
due to Seventh street alope, but to the
entire city. He said that the paving
of Seventh street would in no way be
commensurate with the value of the
"I am against the policy to grant a
franchise for 50 years, which, coupled
with the time it has already run, means
that the Southern Pacific will have had
a free right of way from Oakland for
100 years. It will be tying up the city
for more than . a generation into the
future. The resolution 'of this improve
ment club looks to me like a faked
At this point Rev. Father Dempsey
arose to object to the language Pardee
had used and said that the remark, was
equivalent to calling: the members of
the club fakers. Pardee replied that
he had meant nothing personal and of
fered his apology. After all the direc
tors present had taken part in the dis
cussion 1t was decided to lay the mat
ter on the table in view of the differ
ence which existed upon the matter.
The club's resolution will be taken to
the city counc.il.
W. R. Scott, assistant general man
ager of the Southern Pacific company,
has submitted to the city council by
letter a report on the earnings of the
Seventh street line for which the elec^
trie franchise is asked,, with an expla
nation of the plans for improvement of
the suburban system In this city. The
plans, he said, can not be carried out
if the franchise is not granted. The
project involved is part of a general
scheme, to cost $10,000,000, in Oakland.
"Some very extravagant statements
have been made in the press from time
to time concerning the earning ca
pacity of this portion of the line that
were entirely unwarranted. -For the
months of January to July, inclusive,
for the year 1910. the total earnings
accruing to the line under discussion
were |82,954, or an average of $11\855
a month. This includes all commuter
service and all 10 cent tickets; in other
words, everything pertaining to that
portion of the line, from which you will
note that the claims made as to the
earning capacity of the line have been
merely guessed at. The figures herein
given can be authenticated if the coun
cil so desires.
"It is our, desire, and 'has been for
several yearp. to improve the" service
in Oakland in every way possible, and
I think the work already done is suffi
cient evidence of our intention to con
tinue in' that policy."

RICHMOND, Nov. 22.— The recall pro

was declared constitutional at Martinez
today by Superior Judge Buckles of So

Judge Latlmer. A writ of mandate
was issued, directing the councilmen to
call a municipal election for successors
to themselves. Malfeasance in office
was charged against six out of the nine
Judge Buckles' decision will prob
ably be appealed from, as the Richmond
officials have put up a hard fight
against submitting the question of
recall to popular vote. An array of
legal talent has been occupied with the
case, which has attracted widespread
interest because of the novelty of the
Attorneys James P. Montgomery and
W. Lair Hill appeared in behalf of
Thomas G. Conn, a tax payer, :in
whose, name the proceedings against
the councllmeri 'were brought. For
the city officials appeared J. J. Dunne,
Henry M. Owens and Lee D. Windrem.
A political struggle was the origin
of the lawsuit. Orlln Hudson, city en
gineer, who was politically obnoxious
to six of the nine councilmen, was
removed from office without other
cause. The petition for the recall of
the six councilmen who ousted him
then followed. The six are J. B.
Willis, J. C. Owens, J. N. Hartnett, J.
J. Dooling, H. E. Wyatt and Ed Mc-
Duff. The three in favor of Hudson
are E. J. Garrard, G. A. Fallett and O.
R. Ludewig. „
-' The recall .petitions' were signed by
25 per cent of the voters of Richmond,
which, according to the new charter,
should be followed by a call for an

City Engineer Walter Frickstad. Nei
ther the petition nor the protest con
tained sufficient signatures. .
The council will take, up the matter
again next. week if legal petitions are
filed in the meantime.
Several councilmen. favored delay not
only because of the legal entanglement,

stand the extremely technical nature of
the Vrooman act under which they pro
posed to provide -sewers.
Other Fruitvale districts have decided
to ,awalt action by the legislature to

scion and millionaire, was admitted to

thereon issued to Attorney James ' H.

MRS. MARTIN AND
BABY JOHN CLASH
Cross Examination of Boy by
His Putative Mother Draws
Crowd to Court
OAKLAND, Nov. 22.— The duel of wits
began today between Mrs. Isabella J.
Martin, on trial in Judge Wells' court
for dynamiting Judge Ogden's home,
and , "Baby John" Martin, whom she
reared as her son, and who Is now giv
ing evidence against her. Mrs. Martin,
acting as her own attorney, fired ques
tions at him for hours in an effort to
make him contradict himself. Ac
cording to the progress made today it
is probable that the boy will be\pn the
witness stand for -a. week.
Mrs. Martin did. succeed In making
"Baby John" angry. at times, but he did
not lose his head, and the day closed
without result, except that her, ques
tions-brought out, much that was dam
aging, to herself. At' times . ; the pair,
who lived "together as mother and son
for 15 years, engaged in brisk repartee,
in which the son scored most. Mrs.
Martin asked him if she was a good
house keeper. -
"Yes," answered the boy, "she can
do almost anything about a house,
from keeping it to blowing it up."
Judge Wells frequently interrupted
the disputes between the boy and his
putative mother. He tried with little
success to prevent Mrs. Martin from
telling the jury about the witness. Mrs.
Martin would not be stopped and she
asked questions that insinuated that
John had been guilty of stealing money
out of a church contribution ,box and
of other misdeeds. ' ,
The beginning of his cross examin
ation was the signal for a crowd to
come to the courtroom, even greater
than heretofore. Many waited an hour
to get a seat. One old man was jammed
behind the door when it was opened,
and so seriously hurt that he had to
be taken home. A. J. -Woolsey, the
clerk of the court, was almost trampled
upon when he tried to get to xils deck.
