GIVE COURTS MORE
POWER, SAYS SLOSS
Speedy and Certain Convictions
Impossible Now Declares
Supreme Court Justice
Defendant Should Be Made to
Testify and Other Changes
Are Urged by Jurist
Justice M. C. Sloss of the state su
preme court has come out strongly for
a comprehensive reform of criminal
procedure tn California. His views are
set forth in an Illuminative article Jn
the January issue of the Journal of
Criminal Law and Criminology. He
finds that the criticisms leveled most
frequently agrainst the prevailing sys
tem are, first, that it possesses cum
bersome features which sometimes
nullify prosecutions that should be suc
cessful; second, that it gives the
great an advantage to the accused as
against the state, and, third, that It
involves an endless chain of delays.
For these defects Justice Sloss pro
poses definite remedies. He suggests
means for the more speedy and cer
tain conviction of the guilty, with an
eye. at the same time, to the full pro-
I tection of the innocent.
iimUAKt OF REfOMMENDATIOXS
The measures of relief advocated by
j Justice Sloss may he briefly summa
rized in nine d\vlsions. They are:
I—Provision1 —Provision for a review of the facts
as well as the law on appeal under
conditions that would prevent re
versals where a defendant's guilt
had been shown and he had been
given the essentials of a fair trial.
2 —Right of the state under certain cir
cumstances to remove the hearing
from one county to another.
3—Conviction by verdict of three
fourths of a jury except in cases
punishable by death or life impris
4—Right of a jury to consider failure
of a defendant to take the witness
s—Power to be vested' In the state to
compel defendant to produce papers
or documents material to the In
I — Absolute prohibition of testimony
or confessions obtained from per
sons under arrest as the result of
private questioning by officers of
, 7—Statute requiring the district attor
ney who tried a case to assist the
attorney general in Its presentation
B—Authority vested with the trial
judge to charge the Jury as to the
facts as well as the law.
9 —Denial to a defendant of the right
to challenge a grand jury by which
he has been indicted.
In Introducing his subject. Justice
Sloss quotes President Taft's statement
that "the administration of criminal
law in this country is a disgrace to
"I think no one will deny the truth
of these statements," says Pioss, "nor
question the necessity for taking
steps as may he necessary to alter the
conditions so described."'
couivr is HAMPEnnn
He points out that the appellate
courts have at present the power of
review of the law and not of the facts,
"Where the appellate court can see
from the' record that the defendant's
I guilt has been clearly shown, and that
j he has had the essentials of a fair
trial, the verdict shouTd be permitted
to stand. But it is apparent from what
has been said that this course of de
cision tan not be adopted by an appel
late court whose constitutional pow
ers are limited to review of questions
of law. The Inquiry whether a ver
dict i« right or wrong, Just or unjust,
necessarily requires a decision upon the
facts. That such inquiry may be made
by an appellate court is demonstrated
by the decisions of the Kngllsh court
under the criminal appeals act. It may
be- made hy our appellate courts, pro
vided we enlarge their powers by
amendment of the state constitution.
"I believe tRe constitution should be
so amended as to give the higher courts
power, in criminal appeals, to review
questions of fact as well as of law
to the extent necessary to determine
whether or not any error of law, or
any omission, has In the judgment of
the court worked a substantial injus
tice to the appellant. If it is found
that no such Injustice has been done,
the conviction should stand."
dßfexijaxt shot i,n testify
In support of his recommendation as
j to the failure of a defendant to testify
j In his own Behalf, Justice Sloss says:
"The presumption that a man Is inno
cent until he is proved guilty should
not be weakened. The requirement
I tffat no man should be Boovleted of
i crime unless his guilt be established
by the state beyond a reasonable doubt
should be maintained. But it la no
abandonment of these principles to say
that when the pfosecution has shown
a state of facts which points' to the
guilt of the accused and those facts
are such that a denial or explanation
of them by the accused would tend
to establish his Innocence, his failure
or refusal to make that denial or give
' that explanation may be considered by
the jury as an Item of evidence hear
ing upon the question to be decided.
' In the same connection, I think the
state should be permitted to compel
the production hy subpena of docu.
ments or papers which may be ma
terial to the inquiry, even though such
papers may he In the possession or con
trol of the defendant.
WAR CRAFT TO JOIN
IN MIMIC BATTLE
Hide and Seek Game for Pacific
[Special Ditpakh to The Call]
PANTA BARBARA. Jan. S—The
cruisers California and Kouth Dakota
and nine torpedo boats of the Pacific
fleet will engage In mimic warfare
among the channel Islands off Santa
Barbara tomorrow night, and probably
for the several succeeding nights It
will be the first time that such prac
tice has been engaged In by the fleet,
and it is looked forward to with keen
interest by the naval authorities.
According to Admiral Thomas, com
manding the fleet, this practice Is com
paratively new on both coasts, but on
the Atlantic seaboard the naval officials
are somewhat fahilliar with It.
■vV'hen the cruisers leave they will
hide behind one of the Islands, and the
destroyers will endeavor to sneak upon
them. Whichever one sights the other
first will begin firing, and the harbor Is
likely to he tho scene of lively scrim
mages during the next two weeks.

THE SAX FRANCISCO CALL. MONDAY. JAX-t'ARY 0, 1911.
HE wa6 a guest at one of the taverns on Lake Tahoe—the sort of man
who, preparing for an annual fortnight of leisure, will buy blue neg
ligee shirts a belt and sombrero; and, arriving at the 6cene of his
holiday in normal serges or cheviot, will disappear at once to don them with
corduroys. It is being "in character." When in the mountains' one should
look lik> a mountaineer, or as a mountaineer, should look.
Being this sort of a person he went on long tramps in leather leggins
and returned with Mariposa lilies in the hatband of his sombrero. He also
took many snapsrot pictures of groups on the piazza and in the evenings
might b< induced to do sleight of hand tricks and parlor magic.
One morning he announced an intention of climbing Tallac. The snow
crested Mountain nses almost sheer from the lake and its summit commands
a view vnsurpassed in the Alps, or nearl}' so. Difficult to attain, requiring
enduram c for the long ascent, but wonderfully repaying in the panorama of
a thousa d hills, receding, threaded through with rivers and set with lakes.
The mar accomplished it. At night he returned, weary, but mildly elated.
"Die you make the summit?" he was asked eagerly. Some inspiration
I of moments in the great solitude of the peaks must linger with him.
"Of course I did," was the answer. He was complacent, pleased at
being the center of piazza interest.
"It vas quite a climb, yes. But what do you think I found at the top?
Blue daises! The most wonderful things—blue daisies- with yellow centers!
I pressed two in my notebook"—displaying them. There was a pause while
the dead flowers vere passed for inspection. Then some one inquired if
the climb had greatly fatigued him.
"Why. yes, I was tired," he admitted, "but then T had been thoughtful
enough to take some chocolate. When I got to the top I made a snowball
and rolled a piece of chocolate in it, and I had the most delicious chocolate
sherbet you ever ate. It rested me."
There is a moral to this story; those whose souls are not above daisies
and sherbet shouM remain in the low places. Ascent is wasted energy.
Blue daisies and sherbet may be found in accessible valleys.

IN MARKET REVIEW
Settled Condition of Country
Will Mean Greater Trad
ing in Future
NEW YORK. Jan. 8 —Stock market
operations of the new ypur's opening
week showed little participation out
side of professional ranks. The sum
ming up of last year's record and the
coming year's prospects in numerous
annual reviews had the effect of tem
pering hopes for the future by the re
membrance of past disappointments.
Confidence' in the ultimate outcome
of the new year was fairly general,
but authoritative opinion showed some
wide divergences over the probable
period of the reaction of the latter
part of last/ year. Suggestions that
business might be still kept within re
stricted limits by a spirit of caution
and by the necessities of * the credit
situation, available capital supplies
and retrenchments of operating v and
producing costs were not calculated "to
incite to fresh departures in specula
Apparently some expectation had
bean felt that th<?sp doubtful factors
mlfcht Induce a degree of positive de
pression and a short interest remain-
Ing uncovered was the consequence.
The demand to rover from this source
Imparted strength to the market.
The measures of retrenchment and
economy so generally In force, while
marking a halt of enterprise and prog
ress, are recognized as the correctives
for what is lacking in conditions.
The progress of recuperat!6n already
shows in the money market. An ex
pending volume of bond dealings and
a rising tendency of prices in that de
partment give hope for better terms
for new Issues than thought possible
last fall. Failure of a trust company
here yesterday was without Influence
on the stock market, which closed at
best prices for the week. The embar
rassment of this institution is beUeved
to date back to the panic of 1907,
when its position was admittedly pre

MAYOR GOES EAST IN
AID OF EXPOSITION
Charter Amendment That Per*
mits Second Trip Ratified
Mayor P. H. McCarthy will leave
this morning on the Overland Limited
for Washington, where he will co
operate with the delegation from this
city, which has gone to the national
capital In the interests of the Panama-
Pftcvific exposition. The mayor was a
member of the party that first made
the plea for the recognition of San
Francisco by congress as the site for
the fair, and he was asked to be on
hand to assist in the big battle about
to he waged.
A charter amendment was a neces
sary preliminary to the mayor's trip.
As the law stood, he could not absent
himself a second time. "This .was
changed at the recent charter election
and the new provision has been rati
fied by the legislature.
"I can not tell how long I shall be
gone," said the mayor last night. "It
will depend on our friends in congress.
The hearing will be held January 17.
and if we get quick action, we can all
come home. On the other hand, it may
be necessary for us to remain later
than that date. I have instructions
from Mrs. McCarthy to come home as
soon as I can. These nre the only
definite orders I have at this time."
Besides a brief stop in Chicago and
Philadelphia, the mayor's itinerary in
cludes only the visit to Washing-ton.
I. Goldman, businessman and fore
man of the grand jury, will also leave
today for Washington to help San
Francisco get the exposition. Goldman
is personally acquainted with several
public men at Washington as well as
with others of Influence in New York,
Boston and Philadelphia and he pur
poses to enlist them in this city's be
half. He will stay until the fair is

AT TANFORAN MEET
Blackmailer Admits Identity
When Confronted With Pic
ture Nine Years Old
Joseph Comllnski, alias Joseph I
berg, alias Jenky the nigger, a no
torious criminal who is wanted In sev
eral states, was captured yesterday at
Tanforan by Detective Maurice Behan.
The capture was effected through a
picture which Behan had seen several
months ago, and which was taken of
the criminal nine years ago.
Comlinski. which is the name lie
gave the police In this city yesterday,
is under Indictment for grand larceny
and extortion for blackmailing i
nent turfmen and women in Brooklyn.
With four other men he operated
wholesale blackmailing schemes in the
eastern cities. He sent threatening- let
ters to racehorse owners demanding
the payment of large sums of money
under threats that the animals would
be poisoned. Tn tills manner he suc
ceeded in extorting thousands of dol
lars. The police in Brooklyn, how
ever, caught him and his four com
panions. They were out on $s,onn
bail each when they run away last
January. Comlinsk! is also wanted in
Seattle for burglary.
When confronted with the mass of
evidence against him Comllnski ad
mitted to hi? identity and confessed
complicity in the blackmailing scheme.
TVord was sent to the east last night
and two detectives have started west
to take him back.
PORCH CLIMBER TAKES SILVER- While the i
family of Louis Rnbensteln, 1175 McAllister
street, was at Tanforan watching the aviators
a porch climber entered their home and stole
♦30 worth of silver ware and valuables. Th»
thief made thorough search of all the. rooms,
emptying'trunk* and bureaus in his quest for
loot.» Entrance was gained by a porch window.
TO BE EXTENDED
Plans to Connect Thoroughfare
With Market at Twelfth
Will be Considered
A maps meeting will he held at Mis
sion Promotion "hall, Sixteenth and
Mission streets', tonight for. the purpose
of discussing plans for the extension
of Mission street to connect with Mar
ket at Twelfth. The extension will be
accomplished through the Mission plaza.
The center of the plaza will be trans
formed Into an ornamental park. By
these changes not only will Mission
street be widened, but the width of
Twelfth.street will be expanded to 150
feet at this point". "
This scheme provides for an open
avenue of approach from Market street
to the national guard armory to be
built at Fourteenth and Mission. It
will afford the armory ready connection
with Van Ness avenue, which will be
used for drill purposes.
It is stated that the United Railroads
contemplates the erection of a build-
Ing: for its general offices at the site of
the old powerhouse at "Valencia and
Market streets/near the scen,e of the
contemplated improvements. ,
A large number of Mission * street
5e number of Mission street
property owners have, signified their
intention of attending the meeting/ to
night. The work mapped out is re
garded as of the highest importance to
the Mission.. .
In its sketch of the project the pood
roads committee of the Mission promo
tion association proposes that the
southwest corner of Herman and West
Mission be added to the Peabody school
lot adjoining, so that the entire cor
ner may be used for the Humboldt
evening polytechnic school.
