LOR ANGELES, CaL, Nov. 14,-Allcglng
that ballots cast In several precincts ot
los Angeles city and county had been
tampered with and that return sheets
had beyh abstracted, Mary Floy, a demo
cratlo presidential olector, obtained from
the. district court of appeals today a writ
of mandamus to compel tho County Board
of Supervisors to bIvo "a, fair and hon
est count of the ballots cast In the clec
tlon of November 5." Tho writ was made
returnable ntxt Monday and will have
the effect of delaying until after that
dato tho announcement of the result of
the presidential vote canvass by th"6
Board of Supervisors. .
"We contend that, technically, 2.G00
votes are Involved In the mandamus pro
ccedlngs," said Democratic County
Chairman Cotton, "but there are between
600 and 600 which wo contend will bo di
rectly affected. I am satisfied that
many ballots have -Wen thrown out
on technical errors which should havo
been counted, and that others In favor
of the progressives wero counted when
they clearly wero defective."
lloom for Doubt.
J. O. Davis, democratic stato chairman,'
and .Rudolph Sprockets of tho Woodrow
(Wilson lvepubllcan league arrived today.
"I do not charge fraud," said Mr,
Spreckels, "but I do think thcro is room
for doubt."
Democratic watchers of tho canvass,
now in progress, asserted today that a
difference of 1C0 votes had been found
in favor of Wilson, while tho progres
sives were equally strong In their claims
that absolutely no change had been mado
In tho totals as announced by County
Clerk Leland.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14. With but
one precinct missing and only nttX court
He remaining1 to be canvassed officially.
California gavo Roosevelt today a plural
ity over Wilson of fifty-six. Tho final
result remained,, however, in tho keeping
of three populous counties, which had not
certified to their returns.
In Los Angeles county the best unoffi
cial Information was that Wilson had
gained soventy-two votes on a canvass of
the county nearly completed. In Alamedu
county, containing the cities of Oakland
and Berkeley, similar sources gave Wll.
son' thirty-two. In San Francisco, .al
though democratic- headquarters an
nounced a Wilson gain of thirty-four, tho
rcgisterer bellovnd that corresponding
clerical errors In tho Roosevelt colunjn
would leavo thn net result negative.
In the missing mountain precincts the
registration records show twelvo republi
can voters, ono socialist and one recluse
w ho refused to stato his party affiliation.
an unofficial lead of fifty votes.
In point of fact, no figures that can
now bo complied seem of much value,
i Tho highest republican or democratic
(lector In oho county Is shown by tho
returns not necessarily to be the highest
in another county, so that a split clec-
toral representation Is almost certain.
and hojv California has gone will not be
known until the secretary of state certl-
j fles to tho voto by Individual electors and
lit appears whother Wilson or Roosevelt
' has a majority of tho delegation.
FIVE HUNDRED WOMEN

i to prove that th'ey could keep a secret.
They elected a president soon after con-
ivenlng In a secret session, but her name,
they announced, would not be given out

only reason assigned for the determlna-
'tlon to keep silent.
However, a most persistent rumor was
,that Mrs. Frederick A. Dow, president
of the First district, had been chosen by
'a big majority. ,

Ettor Says He Gets
Hislnspirationfroin
Jesus and Lincoln
SALKM, Mass.. Nov. ' H.-Joscph J.
Ettor, on trial hero with Arturo Ulovnn
nlttl and Joseph Caruso for the Anna
Loplzzo murder during tho I-awrenco tex
tllo strike, declared on the witness stand
today that Jesus Christ and Abraham
Lincoln wero sources of inspiration to hint
as a labor leador. ,
Asked on redirect examination by At
torney Fred II. Mooro of tho Industrial
Workers of tho World as to his religion.
Ettor replied:
"1 am an early Christian."
"What Is meant by that?"
"I mean I bellovo In Christianity as
Jesus Christ taught It Himself."
"Did you ever read anything by Abra
ham Lincoln?"
"Yes."
"Did nnythlng of Lincoln's that you
read havo anything to do with your Idea
that labor should get tho full product of
its toll?"
"It did." said Ettor.
Ettor said that in reference to rebel
lion ho meant "economic rebellion." Mr.
Mooro asked Ettor his purpose when ho
went to Lawrence.
"I went there with ono definite pur
pose," said Ettor, "to seo that tho tex
tllo workers got better conditions. To get
them I realized that they must com
pletely tie up tho mills, keep them tied
up nnd be able to keep tho strikers out
of tho mills long enough to show tho
employers that they could not mako cloth
without them."
"And with such a purpose,' what would
be tho effect of violence?" Mr. Mooro
asked.
"It would completely disorganize tho
plans," said Ettor.
'Did you, mako any reference to the
pollco and soldiers thcro being armed?"
Mr. Attwlll asked.
"I did," replied Ettor.
"And then, didn't you say, 'and you,
too, will bo armed,' and, after a pause,
with a smile, 'by tho power of your
labor?' "
"I did stato that," said Ettor.
Court was adjourned early owing to
tho Illness of GlovannttU's attorney, W.
Scott Peters. Glovanlttl is expected to
tako the stand tomorrow.
Contract System in
Prisons Condemned;
Outdoor Work Better
BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 14.-Tho con
tract system of prison labor was con
demned In tho report of the Commltteo
on Prison Labor presented today at tho
congress of the American Prison asso
ciation In annual session here. The com
mittee, however, recommended the sys
tem when no other means of employment
could be provided, believing It preferablo
to Idleness.
'Tlfocfoyincnt of. prisoners, the re-
port maintained, should be directed en
tirely by tho state, and tho products of
this labor should be disposed of by tho
state.
Tho first consideration of every or
ganization, the report continued, should
be the training of tho prisoner, and nfter
that, financial results. Every prison
should bo so classified that a certain
group of men should at all times bo pro
vided with work, on farms, roads and
other outsldo work, and a larger portion
of each prison should bo employed on
tho state account system.
Tho commltteo believed It possible for
every stato having a population of 2,000,000
Inhabitants or more to employ all Its
convict population In tho manufacture
of articles for tho use of tho stnto aid
its political divisions.
James H. Leonard, superintendent of
the Ohio Stato reformatory at Mansfield,
was eledted prqsldent ot tho association,
and Dr. D. C. Peyton. Jcffcrsonvlllc,
Ind vlco president. The secretary, Jo
seph B. Beyers of Trenton, N. J.; Finan
cial Secretary II. H. Shlrer of Columbus,
O., and Treasurer Frederick H. Mills of
Now York, weer re-elected.
Tho congress will end Its session this

Tho proposal was made by ' Speaker
Lowthcr, who Intimated that It would be
advisable "for tho house to take further
time to consider the points at Issue" be
twecn the two factions In regard to tho
home rule measure.
A graceful apology from Ronald Mc
Neill, Mho unionist member who hurled
the book at Winston Churchill, first lord
of the a'dmlralty, during tho dlstrubance
last night, helped to cdol the atmosphere
today. Churchill accepted the apology
awith equal heart-noss.
Speaker Lowther In his remarks sug
gested that tho members take a period
for reflection and emphasized the undc-,.,
sirablllty of Parliament departing from
Its established precedents. He could not
help thinking, he said, that corn rolutlon
of tho difficulty might bo found which
would be acceptable to all parties and
would bo more In accordanco with prece

Law, tho leader ot the unionist, both
welcomed the speaker's 'Interposition,
which Is, tho unionists claim, a victory
for their . contention.

however. In the opinion or diplomats, be
unlimited If they urn to prove acceptable
to Bulgaria. With' tho last defenses on
Constantinople nlmost In Its hands, Bui

Whle, therefore, .Turkey's recognition
of tho realities has smoothed thu path or
diplomacy and may result lu Coiistan
tlnbplo, tho Dardanelles and perhaps Hony
other parts of Its lCuropean possessions
being loft It, and prevent a scramblo for
them by tho powers, thcro still aro some
serious questions to bo dealt with. Among
these are, notably, those of tho position
ot Albania nnd of tho Servian amblCon
to have a port on tho Adriatic, sea.
Tho Albanians aro taklngsteps to mak
their country Independent and besldi s
publishing a proclamation haa Issued a
protest against any attempt to Interfere
with tho freedom and Integrity of the
country, Tho organization also makes
tho chargo that the Servians havo se
cretly murdered all tho Albanian prison-
ers of war.
As to tho Adriatic, which, according ti
a report from AleBslo today tho Scrvlaiu
havo not yet readied, there Is no offi
cial change cither In the Austro-ltnllau
or tho Servian attitude.
A dispatch from Alcsslo confirms tho
previous reports that tho Montenegrin
army advancing on that town haa auf
fcred a reverse. The Montenegrins wero
unable to tako thn town owing to the
Mlrdlto tribesmen Joining forces with tho
Turks. Tho Montenegrins wero driven
back aa far as tho Boyana river.
