HORN IS WILLING
TO BE SCAPEGOAT
Richmond Pastor Says He
Will Prove Neither He Nor
Brother Is Bigamist
Preacher Gives More of Life
History, but Is Vague
Declaring that lie would be a scape
goat for his brother's sins and would
vindicate the entire family of bigamy
charges, Rev. Frank Horn, pastor of
the First Baptist church of Richmond,
yesterday related a few more Incidents
of his life history.
He and his much talked of but still
invisible twin brother were brought up
in Colon, a small town in Jowa, he
said, the location of which he could
only faintly describe. He could not
remember the name of the county. The
town is not listed in the postal guide.
"T will be my brother's keeper," Is
the statement he Issued through the
bars of the Contra Costa county jail
in Martinez. "I shall submit to the
bigamy charges which should really
be aimed at him, and I expect to prove
that neither Is guilty. I have no fear
of the result."
MOTHER AND SISTKR ARRIVE
Thus the man who is accused by
Mrs. Eva Mac de Tovrea of San Fran
cisco of having married her when he
had another wife living, replied to in
quiries about his plans for defense.
His mother, Mrs. Eva Mclntyre, who
arrived in Martinez Monday with her
daughter, Martha Mclntyre, from Port
land. Ore., went to Richmond late that
evening, in company with Mrs. Pellen
Church, with whom Horn boarded.
Mrs. Church denied that Mrs. Mc
lntyre or her daughter were staying
wiih her, and said she did not know
where they were. Attorney A. J.
Clark of Richmond virtually admitted
that the Mclntyres were staying in
Richmond. He said he had filed in
court a demand that the suit for big
amy be dismissed, since five days had
elapsed without arrangements being
made for trial.
"'The last time I saw my twin brother
was several months ago in San Fran
cisco," said Horn. "I believe he is in
Mexico and may not have seen a news
paper for months or have heard that
anything had happened to me. We
were never intimate, and so when he
did not come over to Richmond to see
me the day after I saw him in San
Francisco as he had promised to do,
I was not surprised.
MOTHER IDENTIFIES HER SON
"When we were boys in Colon we
look so much alike that the teacher
was often deceived. I have seen him
but seldom of recent years. When I
was east last year r went around to
visit the town but it was almost de
Horn insisted that his brother could
be identified by means of scars on his
left cheek made when he was 12 years
old. Horn's mother identified him as
her son Frank by a scar on the back
of his head, which both agreed was
the result of a kick by a horse.

DAMAGE TO CRUISER
INCURRED IN HAWAII
California's Smash in Side
Not Serious, Unofficial,
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
MARE ISLAND. Jan. 27.—That the
damage to the cruiser California is not
so serious as first reported, and that
whatever It may turn out to be it was
not suffered anywhere on the Pacific
coast, but In Hawaiian waters nearly
a year and a half ago. Is the result
of an unofficial inquiry today.
Captain Alexander Haistead is ab
solved from responsibility in the mat
ter of the damaged plate, or plates, and
the dents are supposed to have been
made-when Captain Charles H. Harlow,
retired, was in charge of the ship.
A former member of the California's
crew, who worked in the fireroom, is
reported to have said that while the
vessel was at Pearl harbor more than
a year ago she leaked slightly. It
was thought at the time that some
of the rivets of her double bottom had
sweated or that a plate had buckled.
The leak was reported at the time
to Admiral Southerland, who is now
in command of the Pacific squadron. A
naval board of inquiry made a report
to the department at Washington.
A dispatch from San Diego quotes
Admiral Southerland as saying that the
damage to the ship was known to the
department for a long time.
Admiral W. H. H. Southerland, com
mander of the Pacific fleet, on board
his flagship, the Colorado, at Ban Diego,
this morning characterized reports ef
the extent of the damage as "gross
"In the time that the department has
known of the dent," said Admiral
Southerland, "the cruiser has been
thoroughly examined and pronounced
capable of extensive cruises, and she
has made them. The injury to the
hull is by no means such as to cause
It has been surmised, according to
navy officers, that either at Honolulu
or Mare island the hull of the criuser
was subjected to strong. steady
pressure by some vessel that came
alongside, and that the dent, which
Admiral Southerland says is not 100
feet long, was the result. An investi
gation is not expected.
The accident to the cruiser occurred
before Admiral Southerland became
commander of the Pacific fleet, but just
how or when no one, it is stated, seems
to know. Captain Harlow may be
summoned to Mare island to testify.

(Special Dispatch to The Call)
NEW YORK, Jan. 28.—The first ses
sion of tho thirteenth annual meet
ing of the National Civic federation
convened today at tho Hotel Astor,
and it was one of the most important
and interesting meetings ever held by
President Seth Low made his an
nual report during the morning hour,
in which he exhaustively discussed the
labor situation in this country. The
chairmen of departments, including
August Belmont; John Hays Hammond,
Alton B. Parker, Emerson McMillan
and William R. Wilcox made addresses.
President Low said ln part:
LABOR DIFFERS IN OPINION
"I venture to think that to the aver
age farmer and even to the average
business man. and, perhaps, even to
the average newspaper writer, the
American Federation of Labor, the so
cialist party and the Industrial Work
ers *©f the World are substantially
identical. They are looked upon in
common as frequent disturbers of the
peace and as most regrettable inter
rupters of the even course of Ameri
"It will probably ,be a surprise to,
any one In this state of mind to be
told that each of these organizations
holds a radically different philosophy
on labor questions, and that they also
differ in the ends at which they aim.
"The aim of the American Federation
of Labor is constructive. It recognizes
that the private ownership of prop
erty is an evolution that has marked
the progress of civilization from the
beginning of time. It, therefore, does
not quarrel with the present industrial
system because the Instruments of pro
duction are in private hands; but it
alms constantly to improve the con
dition of the workers under the exist
FEDERATION IS CONSISTENT
"The philosophy of the American
Federation of Labor is entirely con
sistent with the present organization
of industry the world over, on the basis
of private ownership.
"The socialist party frankly seeks to
overthrow the present organization of
industry in private hands and to sub
stitute for the private ownership of
the agencies of production and distri
bution, ownership and operation by
"The socialist party, as such, seeks tp
accomplish the overthrow of the exist
ing order, peaceably, If possible, and
by political methods, but none the less
It seeks to bring about revolution.
SOCIALIST PARTY DESTRUCTIVE
"As distinguished from the Ameri
can Federation of Labor, therefore, I
call the socialist party a destructive
party, and not a constructive party.
"The Industrial Workers of the
World have an aim which is different
from the aim both of the socialists and
the American Federation of Labor and
because their aim is different, the meth
ods which they advocate are different.
"The philosophy of the Industrial
Workers of the World is that the
agencies of production and distribution
do not belong to those who now own
them or to the state, but that, of right,
they belong to the workingmen, who,
they claim, are the creators of all
wealth. This being so, they believe
that the workers should seize them
themselves and operate the agencies of
production, and distribution. To this
end they believe in direct action, as
distinguished from political action.
APWS OF INDUSTRIAL WORKERS
"They propose to organize the work
men, if they can, not by trades, but. as
they say. by industries. This industrial
union, as they call it. would be a union
comprising all the employes of a given
establishment, so that, in case of a
strike, the entire establishment could
be tied up.
"They favor strikes, not for the pur
pose of improving the condition of the
workingman, but for the purpose of
breaking down the wage system.
"They believe that workmen should
deliberately attempt to make produc
tion and distribution through private
agencies impossible. Accordingly, they
favor 'sabotage,' and any other means
which may be available to make pri
vate Industry impossible under existing
PHILOSOPHY IS DESTRUCTIVE
"The philosophy of the Industrial
Workers of the World is destructive
like the philosophy of the socialists'
because, before they commence con
structive work, they must first of all
destroy what Is, which is exactly what
they wish to do.
"But their aim differs from the aim
of the socialists in this important re
spect, that the socialists wißh to sub
stitute state ownership for rfrivate
ownership, while the Industrial Work
ers of the World wish to substitute
ownership by workingmen for owner
ship by capitalists. Against these two
destructive programs the American
Federation of Labor and the great rail
way brotherhoods so far stand like &
"The methods of the Industrial
Workers of the World are frankly rev
olutionary, as their act Is revolution
ary, and when this is understood it is
easy to understand also the measures
which they support.
"Industrial unionism, therefore is
full of danger, both for the workmen
and for their employers, if the aim is
to advance the welfare of both through
"If. on the other hand, the desire is
to make industry impossible, under
modern conditions, industrial unionism
may or may not prove to be well adapt
ed for the purpose. Both workmen and
their employers should clearly under
stand what is involved in this new
GREAT BODIES NONSOCIALISTIC
"So far in America, the great body
of the American Federation of Labor
and of the great railway brotherhoods

the railroads and the firemen both
sides are willing to arbitrate all their
differences, but the firemen demand
that the arbitration shall be carried
on as contemplated by the Erdman act,
so that witnesses may be sworn and
perjury punished, if it shall tafce place;
while the railroads stand for an ar
bitration, such as was held by the
agreement with the engineers.
FIREMEN ARE RIGHT
"In this controversy I think the fire
men are entirely right in demanding
arbitration under the Erdman act. I
think the American people are not
only willing that railroad employes
should be paid good wages; I think
the people are desirous that such
wages should be paid.
"I also believe that the people are
entirely willing that higher freight
rates and higher passenger rates
should be allowed by the interstate
commerce commission, if necessary, to
allow good wages to be paid to rail
"The trouble is that, up to this time,
the railroads have not been able to
convince either the Interstate com
merce commission or the public
that they are not able to pay
such wages without the Increase

When the railroads can make that
demonstration I expect to see higher

NEW YORK, Jan. 28.—Objection to
arbitration 'under the Erdman act is
set forth in a statement tonight
through Ellsha Lee, chairman of the
managers' committee, by the 54 eastern
railroads, whose firemen are taking a
strike vote, because of a split over
methods of arbitration of the firemen's
wage and other demands.
The act was drafted, the roads de

of a large territory." The firemen in

"The objection to the Erdman act."
says the statement, "Is apparent from
a statement of what the* act plans,
namely, that arbitration shall be by a
committee, one appointed by each side
and a third by the other two, or else
by Judge Knapp and Commissioner

hands of one man. It is too much
power for one man to have.
"The neutral members of a wage ar

the public. It Is the interests of the
public, along with their employers and
their own, that the railroads are en-
Meavoring to protect. They maintain
that the engineers' arbitration board
