Bt and to keep our industries
busy supplying their wants.
There is no serious danger, I be
lieve, to our institutions from in
dustrial agitations. So long as
such agitation keeps within the
legal bounds it is not without
wholesome significance and may
tend to improve conditions. When
it passes beyond the legal limit,
whether these self-outlawed are
connected with capital <>r with
labor, it is a menace to he dealt
with by lawful authority.
GOLDFV RII.K IS THK fil'IDK.
Notwithstanding- occasions! out
breaks of violence in labor disputes
there is a growing tendency to
settle differences by peaceful

employers toward employes t'-"*n

The Golden Rule is getting to be
more and more a eruide in business
as well as in religion. Social and
<->->onomic conditions are growing
better, not worse, and republican
policies fostering and stimulating
national prosperity undoubtedly
tend toward this betterment.

adequate to deal witti the wage
question.
MINIMIS! WAGE n.WGEROI S
A genera! minimum wage would
have a tendency to bring down the
maximum to the minimum. Labor
organizations are well aware of
this result, where an arrangement
to that effect has been entered into
with employers. However, as I
have said, the American people are
m no need of quack nostrums and
refuse to listen to their venders.
The higher cost of living, as I
have said before, is worldwide.
The aim of the republican party is
to see that American workers are
enabled to meet the cost of living
by keeping employed at good
wages. It is a simple purpose,
and as direct and practical as it is
simple, and does not need a volume
of rhetoric to explain or get
around it. Whije the cost of liv
ing, as far as most of the neces
saries of life are concerned, is not
so high here as in Europe, the
wage earner here is getting from
more than double to six and seven
times the wages paid in Europe,
! is in that proportion better
' able to meet any increase in the
cost of living.

Feathered Ghosts Abroad

Adjutant General Forbes and feathered victims of a foraging expe

| court martial. i
Theft of Fancy Chickens During Theoretical
War Sets General Forbes on Ear
through, saw the item for the prize
fowls and sent a second demand to
General Forbes to single out the guilty
ones and report them.
That was late in the month of Au
gust, and for six weeks the mail be
tween Sacramento and Washington has
been filled with correspondence of an j
urgent and caustic nature. General ,
Forbes said he did not know who com- I
mftted the deed. The war department j
told him to find out. Tn a quandary he
addressed letters to each of the regi
mental commanders who served with
the Red army and to General Robert
Wankowski. the brigade commander,
asking them one and all If they knew J
about It.
From Los Angeles General Wan- ;
kowski replied that he remembered j
lsaving been approached in his field i
headquarters by a rancher who had
lost some chickens, but lie had been I
too busy planning theoretical battles :
to heed practical questions. He had j
referred the man to the damage ap- i
praisers. As for the regimental com
manders, none of them had heard of
such a thing,' they said.
FORBES EH A Q,UA>DARY
Again General Forbes reported to
Washington and again he got the same
reply, which was growing shorter and
terser every time It came. The war
department wanted to know, so it in
formed Forbes, and it wanted to know
immediately. Tt looked to the per
plexed adjutant general as If those
chickens had become a national issue,
like the tariff or free canal tolls.
Wearily he set out on another tour of
Investigation.
A letter from the rancher who lost
the birds contained a spattering of in
formation, hut no real clew. It said
that the 155 chickens had been com
posed of eight dozen hens and 59
roosters. This was discarded as irrele
vant.
Forbes was at his wits' end when he
came to San Francisco from Sacramento
last week. By chance he ran across
one of the militia officers who had
taken part in the sham attack, and the
two fell to exchanging campfire rem
iniscences.
"Did you ever hear about that chicken
dinner our outpost had one night in
San Juan?" the junior officer asked,
as the adjutant general finished telling
one of his pet stories.
SEA TAKES ASHES
OF DEAD WOMAN
Last Rites for Mrs. Maddern
Are Held One Year After
Her Death
In the presence of only a few of her
most intimate friends, the ashes of the
late' Mrs. Corinne Madders, the noted
California dramatist, were given to the
ocean yesterday morning. The action
was in accordance with the wish of
Mrs. Maddern, who died a year before,
October 5, 1911. The burial was with
out ritual, and even the cremation was
without the knowledge of most of those
who attended the funeral services in
this city, October 7, last year' The
consignment of her ashes to the deep
sea tides seven miles beyond the heads,
was postponed until the end of the for
mal mourning period for Mrs. Maddern.
"Crossing the Bar," Tennyson's dirge
lyric, was one of Mrs. Maddern's fa
vorite poems, and she expressed the
wish that her ashes might be given to
the ocean off the California shore.
Accordingly, William A. Maddern, her
husband, and nine of her closest as
sociates, took the urn over the San
Francisco bar in the sea going tug
Virginia.
Far beyond the faintest suggestion of
breakers, where the ocean lay quiet,
except for a long rolling swell, a bower
of violets was placed on the water.
The flowers covered a cradle of moil
In which rested the ashes. The cradle
sank immediately, scattering the blos
soms into a carpet that quickly passed
out to sea.
Mrs. Maddern was curator of the
California club and founded the dra
matic section of that organization.
She introduced among the clubwomen of
this city the dramatic masterpieces of
other countries. She was the mother
of Miss Merle Maddern, now playing
with Otis Skinner in "Kismet" In Chi
cago, and the aunt of Mrs. Minnie
Maddern Fiske.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL. MONDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1912.
Continued From Paiee 1
Forbes grasped at a chair, while his
heart stood on end. He was afraid his
companion would notice his agitation.
, "No. What about it?" he managed \
to reply.
STORY OF CHICKEX RAID
Then came the story—all !of It.
everything the war department had
been hounding him to get for weeks.
The junior officer, who has a vivid
memory ac well as an appetite for
chicken, went into great detail, con
cluding enthusiastically:
"And after that we had chicken in
our 'mess* for five days—all the way
from San Juan to Coyote. Chicken
salad, chicken cream soup, roast
chicken, baked chicken, chicken
fricassee and chicken every other
way."
"Where did you get them?" asked
Forbes.
"Oh—er—l don't know," answered
the garrulous one, with a dawning sus
! picion that he had talked a great deal.
"I guess I'll be going now."
He went, while Forbes hastened to
jot down the names of those who took
part in the celebrated chicken feed.
OTHER HEADS MAY DROP
As a consequence, the Fifth Califor
nia infantry may need a lot of new
officers. The chicken dinner, which
was preliminary to the "chicken week"
described by the young officer, was
given by Captain Rushton McConnell
iof Alameda, commanding Company G
of the Fifth regiment, and the other
officers of his company, to the officers
of the Second, Fifth and Seventh in
fantry regiments, several regular army
men and to the newspaper correspond
ents who happened to be present at
the outpost. *
Colonel David A. Smith of the Fifth
had acted as toastmaster and also as
sisted Captain McConnell in receiving
the thanks of the'guests. If any guest
asked where the chickens came from,
no record was made of the answer.
They were washed down with quanti
ties of sparkling burgundy and claret,
and no one asked where that came
from, either.
Colonel Smith Is said to have written
to General Forbes that he knew noth
ing about stolen chickens, and it is
possible that the trail of bloody
feathers ended at the cook tent. It is
pointed out that he is a brave soldier
who asks no questions.
In the meantime the fuse is growing
short on the bombshell.

largest prizes. Tie trophies in this j
class are for Bellflor." .ts, Newtons, Pip
pins and Spltzenbergs, red Pearmains.

will gleam and glisten during the week
in the great pavilion. The air is filled
with the aroma of the apples. The
apple pavilion, including the space in

MARSHALL BLACK MAY
BE ARRESTED AT ONCE
Veniremen Chosen to Serve on
Special Grand Jury
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
PALO ALTO, Oct. 6. —Active steps
toward the prosecution of Marshall
Black, the embezzling secretary of the
Palo Alto Mutual Building and Loan
association, will be taken tomorrow
morning in San Jose, when the names
of veniremen to serve on the special
grand jury which has been called by
Superior Judge John E. Richards will
be drawn. It is expected that the jury
will meet Wednesday or Thursday for
the first time.
District Attorney Arthur M. Free
said tonight that he would ask the
jury to indict Black for the embezzle
ment of the total shortage as shown
by Expert Hassett's figures, or about
$108,000. He said he preferred to try
the accused official on such a charge
rather than for the embezzlement of
one or two particular items.
Free also said that he had talked
with a number of persons who had
been victimized by Black and that
they seemed anxious to secure his ar
rest at once. For that reason it is
possible that a warrant will be sworn
out, even before the grand jury brings
in Its report, by one of the holders of
worthless checks Issued by Black.
D. L Sloan, president of the associa
tion, defended himself today from the
attack made upon him by Hassett, who
charged him with gross negligence in
allowing Black full authority in the
concern. Sloan said he had followed
the practices and customs* of every
building and loan association in the
state.

CONBTIPATION
Spirit of Greek Past Invoked
Local Hellenes Respond to Call
Speakers at Mass Meeting Urge Hearers to
Enlist in Crusade Against Turk
for the fight, and the speakers yester
day urged their countrymen to take
part in what they said was a fight for
Christian rights.
Rounds of cheering punctuated the
speeches, tears streamed down the faces
of many in the audience, and the en
thusiasm rose to a climax when Taos
Mountainous, on behalf of the Hellenic
Mutual Benevolent society, offered the
entire savings of the association, |7.000,
for use in the war.-
MANY ARE ENLISTING
Enlistment has begun already and
continued yesterday. According to Dr.
Milton Clark, secretary to Consul de
Fontana, the Greek population of San
Francisco has been doubled in the last
week or two by citizens who have come
from outside towns to be ready to enlist
if need be.
Rev. Kallistos Pageorgapouloue,
whose ecclesiastical title Is "Archiman
dritis," ranking just below a bishop,
addressed the congregation just after.
the sermon, encouraging the Greeks to
go to war, not because it is a war of
conquest or of money or one to secure
territories that they never had, but be
cause it is really a twentieth century re
ligious crusade. He reviewed the Turk
ish atrocities and said that the struggle
would not be one in the spirit of re
venge, but one of*-Christian justice
against barbarism, liberty against ty
ranny.
Urging his hearers to take up the
cause of their nation, and arousing a
sentiment expressed in shouts of "Zito"
(hurrah), Consul Richard de Fontana
spoke of the patriotic spirit which had
imbued the Greeks for centuries. A
fight for right and against oppression :
he declared it to be and" expressed the
hope and belief that his countrymen
were not less filled with patriotism now
than they had been in the past.
Details of a telegram sent from the
Pan-Hellenic union of New York -were
explained by M. Scoortes, president of
the local branch of the Pan-Hellenic
union. He said that as soon as the en
listments of men had been made and
the details of organization perfected
here preparations for their transporta
tion to the Mediterranean would be
made. Instructions as to these details
1 would be sent later, he said.
HISTORIC DEEDS RECOUNTED
Attorney C. Vavourls told the history
of the Greek race, recounting famous
deeds in times past and then took up
the present situation, explaining the
causes that were bringing on the war,
and stating the reasons why the Greeks
are getting ready to fight.
Consul de Fontana was cheered re
peatedly as he left the church and
drove away, and enthusiastic Greeks
remaining gathered around the build
ing for some time afterward, recount
ing the events of the meeting.
The proclamation issued in Greek by
the war committee is a patriotic docu
ment dealing with the necessity of re
pelling the advances of the Turks. The
committee is composed of Consul Rich
ard de Fontana, president; Rev. Kallis
tos Pageorgapoulous. D. Damascus, An
gelus Simos, Peter George, N. Damia

brought the news that our country will
be called to arms. All men from the
age of 21 to 38 that can bear arms and
who are ready to throw themselves
into the great fight against our
ancient barbarous enemies, the
Turks, are asked to do so in order to
claim rights which our country has on
territories now held by the Turks, and
at the same time to bring its Christian
rights before Christian humanities, and
to show that this is the time that our
brethren must be saved from Turkish
atrocities.
READY FOR SACRIFICE
"The Greek colony of San Francisco
and Oakland is willing, with the great
est possible speed, to respond to the
call of the fatherland and has organ
hied a Hellenic patriotic committee, the
duty of which will be to make possi
ble to find means of transportation to
their native land of all those who are
called; to collect money; to organize
meetings of protest, and to publish in
the Christian papers of the world the
truth of the Graeco-Turkish situation,
In order to secure the Christian sym
pathy of the world, and especially that
of the great hearted citizens of San
Francisco and of the women of this
city, whose generosity and sympathy is
famous.
"In general, this committee will look
after the details and is formed of
prominent Greeks of San Francisco and
Oakland. The branches of the Pan-
Hellenic and all other societies are rep
resented."
A large number of Greeks, Bulga
rians and Servians in Stockton are
awaiting a message from the Greek
minister in Washington, and on its re
ceipt are ready to g-o back to their
fatherland to fight. Two business men
of that city, Christos Petrakos and
Chardl Faraos, have offered money to
finance the project. James Matas of
San Francisco, a former lieutenant in
the Greek army, addressed these resi
dents at a meeting in Stockton Satur
day night.
