Special Dispatch to The Call
WASHINGTON, Dec. I.—At noon to
morrow the fall of the travels of
Speaker Clark of the house of repre
sentatives and Senator Bacon, the tem
porary presiding: officer of the senate,
will mark the beginning; of the end of
the sixty-second congress and the be
ginning of the end of the control of
the government that the republican
party has maintained for four adminis
trations.
Like all expiring sessions previous to
a change of control, it is not expected
that this the third and final session of
the present congress will be distin
guished by great achievement in th©
wav of legishfttitfß,
The necessity for making campaign
capital which actuated the democrats
in the last two sessions no longer ex
ists. As a consequence the record of
debate is likely to be much less bulky
and the flow of oratory more attenu
lted.
Supply Bills Up
The one great task is to pass the
annual supply bills. The senate must
dispose of the Archbald impeachment.
Outside of these it is expected there
will be few, if any, important subjects
brought up for consideration.
The senate immediately after con
vening will adjourn out of respect to
the memory of Vice President Sherman
and Senators Rayner and Heyburn. who
died during the comparatively short
recess.
The following day the impeachment
proceedings will begin. It has not yet
been decided whether a special presid
ing officer shall be selected for the trial
of the case. Senator Bacon was chosen
pro tempore of the senate until Decem
ber 16, but a movement is on foot to
place one of the distinguished lawyers
in the chair that he may pass on the
question of law involved at the Arch
bald trial.
Root's Name Mentioned
In this connection the names of Sen
ators Bailey, Sutherland and Root have
been mentioned. As Senator Bailey's
term will end with the present session,
there is a disposition to make him pre
siding officer for the Impeachment as a
sort of parting tribute.
The single term resolution to limit
the tenure of office of president will
< orae up for consideration. This stands

THE CALL
"An Independent Newspaper"
TWO PRELATES
TO BE CREATED
PAPAL PRINCES
Archbishop Riordan, v>ho map be
elevated to dignity of cardinal of the
Roman Catholic church.
Archbishops Riordan of San
Francisco and Harty of Philip
pines May Be Honored
Special Cable to The Call
ROME, Dec. I.—Hosts of famous
Catholic prelates are in the eternal
city for the consistory which opens to
morrow. In addition to the members
of the sacred college who will partici
pate in the consistory are many bishops
»nd priests from all parts of the world,
and Rome teems with gossip as to new
cardinals to be named either'at this
consistory or at one to be held in the
spring.
The names of Archbishop Riordan
and Archbishop Harty of the Philip
pines are mentioned as Americans
likely to be raised to the dignity of
the papacy Itself. Pope Pius, it is said,
desires to give to the church on the
Pacific coast and in the orient repre
sentation in the sacred college. The
present three cardinals resident in the
United States all occupy eastern sees.
The names of the eminent San Fran
cisco prelate strongly is favored by
Vatican officials who came in touch with
the archbishop when he was in Europe
recently attending the eucharistic con
gress in Vienna. Archbishop Harty
also is extolled for the success with
which he has coped with the Aglepayan
schism in the Philippines and his just
ice in adjusting quarrels among the re
ligious orders.
A new Austro-Hungarian cardinal is
to be created, but the preconization
probably will not take place until the
spring consistory. Cardinal Vaszary,
O. S. 8., prince primate of Hungary,
who resigned recently, is to be suc
ceeded by Archbishop John Cszernock
of Kaiocsa as cardinal archbishop of
Gran.
Many Irish bishops here, headed by
Most Rev. Dr. Tohill, whose diocese
of Down and Connor, it is expected,
will be advanced to a new archbishopric
preparatory to his creation as one of
two new Irish cardinals.
Tomorrow's consistory will be opened
by Pope Plus with a prayer for world
peace. An important pronouncement
by the holy father is expected.

SAN FRANCISCO. MONDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1912.
MADERO PARDON
BAIT FOR REBELS
TO END REVOLT
New Minister Sure War Is
Continued Through Fear
Surrender Would
Mean Death
AMNESTY PROMISE IF
THEY END FIGHTING
Government Satisfied With
Progress and Fewer Bat
tles Are Reported
MEXICO CITY, Dec. I.—Convinced
that many commands of rebels in the
states of Durango, Coahuila and south
ern Chihuahua are continuing their op
erations merely because they believe
surrender would mean summary exe
cution, Rafael Hernandez, the new
minister of the interior, announced to
day that he would attempt to gain for
them a promise of amnesty.
Cheche Campos and Benjamin Argu
l ado, officers in Orozco's organization,
are the chief rebel leaders in these dis
tricts, and several engagements have
been fought during the latter part of
the week, the government, as usual,
announcing victories.
These and allied leaders have been
making successful raids on small out
posts, managing for the most part to
evade encounters with superior forces.
The rich country is virtually at their
mercy, and the federal forces are able
to accomplish little more than garri
son the larger towns.
Out of the mass of rumors as to the
whereabouts of General Orozco, that
most credited is the report that he has
reappeared at the head of several hun
dred men east of Ojinaga, in the state
of Chihuahua, after recuperating from
a serious sickness.
The government professes satisfac
tion at the improvement in the gen
eral situation. In the state of Oaxaca
some diminution of activity is appar
ent as the result of a campaign of
destruction and summary execution.
Throughout the republic the number of
engagements reported has decreased.
Mexicans are not wholly reassured
by Washington declarations and are
keenly Interested in the proposed visit
of four American battleships to Vera
Cruz and the motive for their coming.
Much Interest Is displayed in the
character of the visit of these bat
tleships. It is no secret that the
American note is not pleasing to the
Mexican government, and the failure
of the Mexican foreign office to dis
cuss the nature of the reply gives
some basis for believing it Is not en
tirely pleasing to Washington.
Machine Gun for Train
EL PASO. Tex., Dec. I.—A machine
gun borrowed from a Mexican gunboat
is being used to protect a troop train
which left Juarez this morning to pa
trol the railways between the state
capital and the border. The gun is
mounted on a fiatcar. The train, car
rying 500 troops, departed over the
Mexico Northwestern railway shortly
after arriving over the Mexican Cen
tral line. It is planned to continue
making this loop betwen Chihuahua
City and Juarez.
NEGRESS SLAYS ACTRESS

an American negress. tonight shot and
killed Miss Jessie Mclntyre, a young
English actress.
Mrs. Gross was separated from her
husband. Pake Gross, a vaudeville per
former, whom she attempted to kill.
Jealousy is said to have been the

N. Y. CENTRAL DERAILED
None of tbc Flyer's Two Hundred Pas-

ALBANY. N. V., Dec. i._ When New

miles an hour, was derailed at Hoff
mans, seven miles west of Schenectady,

oughly shaken up. , The chef of the

AN INDEPENDENT
NEWSPAPER
SAN FRANCISCO had need of an independent newspaper. The
Call supplied the want; An independent newspaper is one that
prints all the news that is fit to print. One that plainly and
dignifiedly chronicles current events without coloring or taking sides,
dealing justly with every one, whether it be the peanut vender of the street
corner or the biggest president of the largest corporation on earth.
The Call has made mistakes—The Call will make mistakes—the
paper that makes none is yet to be printed—but whatever error creeps into
its columns will be either of judgment or mechanical, and not of the heart,
because sincerity shall be its chief asset.
The new management invites criticism and asks suggestions. The Call
readers are urged to send in communications on any subject. All that is
demanded is brevity.
The stress of business does not permit of a just consideration of lengthy
letters, and your time and our time must be devoted to a bigger, better San
Francisco. The circulation books of The Call are open to every one. Ad
vertiser, subscriber, competitor or occasional reader can satisfy himself at
any time of the quality of our clientele.
i
There is no mystery about the making of the modern daily. If you want
to go behind the scenes, the stage door is open always—day or night.
If you like an independent newspaper, we expect and will appreciate your
help. ,
If you desire a spineless, wishy-washy, thimble-rigging publication, we
will not measure to your standards. We ask readers, present and prospec
tive, to patronize Call advertisers because we guarantee the merchandise ad
vertised in these columns.

BULLETIN
Special Cable to The Call
LONDON, Dec L—Reports that the
Balkan allies are on the verge of a
rupture, and that this Is the reason for
the sudden determination of Bnlgarln
and Servia to brine about a cessation
of hostilities with Turkey, absolutely
are without foundation.
LONDON, t>tc. I.—The signing of
the protocol otf the armistice between
the Balkan allies and Turkey, which
was expected today, has been post
poned until Tuesday, as the Greek
delegate has not received the neces
sary authority from his government.
It is rumored that, in addition to
the Bulgarian troops just landed in
Dedeaghatch, another large force of
Greek troops from Saloniki is at sea,
and it is suggested that Greece may
delay signing the armistice in order
to allow these troops time to arrive at
their destination, which is supposed
to be the gulf of Saros, in Gallipolis.
Armistice Covers Whole Field
It is expected the armistice will ex
tend -for about a fortnight, if neces
sary, and cover the whole field of op
erations. The difficulty with respect
to the beleaguered garrisons of Adri
anople and Scutari Is being surmounted
by permitting them to receive dally
rations during the armistice. The pleni
potentiaries appear to have been con
cerned so far solely In arranging the
armistice,"but the peace conference is
expected to begin immediately, prob
ably in Sofia, and as Bulgaria already
has shown greater forbearance than
has been looked for in waiving her
demand for the surrender of Adrl
anople, while at the same time Turkey
can not hope to obtain better condi
tions by continuing the struggle, a
strong feeling is entertained that the
last shot in the war will have been
fired when the armistice is signed.
There is little doubt, however, that
