DENY CHARGES
AGAINST BELL
NON-PARTISAN COMMITTEE
SHOWS ERRORS
Petition to Legislature Wat Causa of
Non.Reductlon of Salaries and
Not Action on Part
of Clark
Special to The Herald.
PASADENA. Oct. 24.— The following
open Iflttcr to the voters of the Thirty
sixth senatorial district was Issued yes
terday by the county non-partisan or
ganization :
"The friends of Benjamin Hahn, the
Republican nominee for re-election as
state senator in your district, are im
puting dishonor to Charles "W. Bell, the
non-partisan candidate for the same
office, and stating that he Is an unfit ,
person for such a position for tho fol
lowing reason: .
'"That as a nominee for county clerk i
of tho regular Republican country con- !
ventlon of 1898 Charles W. Bell was
bound by a resolution of that conven
tion requesting the state legislature to
reduce the salaries of certain county
officers in Los Angeles county. Includ- I
Ing that of county clerk. That Mr.
Bell, In conjunction with other nom
inees, went behind the country con
vention, contributed to a fund for the
purpose of nullifying the action of the
county convention in regard to tho re
' ductlon of salaries and sent men to
Sacramento to lobby for that purpose.
"The facts are: The Republican
; county convention of the county of
Los Angeles, sitting In August 1898,
- passed I a resolution requesting the
state legislature to reduce the salaries .
of all county officers, except that of .
the district attorney and the county |
superintendent of schools in Los An
geles county. After the convention I
had dissolved, a petition was drawn ,
up addressed to the legislature and |
requesting that the resolution of the :
county convention be disregarded and)
that the salaries be not reduced.
Petition Included Bell
"The petition was, without exception,
f for all the candidates Involved by the
resolution, including Mr. Bell, and said
■'petition was signed by a majority of
the delegates of the convention. The
Convention changed Its mind and went
-on record by signing the petition.
"Can honest people impute dishonor
to Mr. Bell in acquiescing in said peti
tion, which was In fact the act of the
•convention? : \
• ■ "That the reconstruction of the reso
lution was the act of the whole Re
publican organization is conclusively
shown by the fact that the Republican
'county central committee, composed
necessarily of delegates to that conven
tion. In fixing the assessment to be
paid by the nominees for county off Ices
toward the defrayment of election ex
; penses determined that the . amount
that each nominee should pay should
be estimated upon the salary to be
drawn during their term of office, and
based said assessment upon the sal
aries as they then were and not upon
those contemplated by the reduction.
I "As to the contention that Mr. Bell
> contributed to a fund for the purpose
of; lobbying at the state legislature
in order to defeat the will of the con- i
ventlon, we unqualifiedly state that the I
■ only funds that were raised at all were j
for the necessary expenses of circu- |
latlng the petition among the dele- j
gates of the convention and of forward-
Ing and presenting It at Sacramento,
and that all the nominees contributed
alike.
; if this act on the part of Mr. Bell wasi
dishonor, then all the delegates of that|
convention, including the county cen
tral committee, were equally In dis
honor, so of All the nominees, including
Mr. 1 Bell. There are nominees of the
Venice convention who are In exactly
the samo position as Mr. Bell in regard
to this matter. There is now one coun
ty officer ;who has been repeatedly re
alected by the Republicans of this
county who Is in exactly the same po
sition. ' Tb". county non-partisan or
ganization does not approve of mud-
Hllnging, but considers that open, do
liberate lies be denied, that the voters
.may .vote Intelligently.
Reasons for Votes
On behalf of Mr. Bell we suggest the
following reasons why you should vote
for him for state senator:
First— He Is truthful.
g Second— He Is honorable, intelligent
and able.
Third— He represents, as a man, what
your district should stand for.
Fourth — He and his family will travel
on • their own transportation to and
from Sacramento and throughout the
state, and he will In no Instance place
himself under tho servitude of using,
railroad passes.
Fifth — HU record as county clerk Is

STATEN ISLANDERS
Ry AMoolntM rrfss
NEW YORK. Oct. 24.— The World
says that an epidemic o fdisease which
doctors have confessed themselves un
able to diagnose and -which has as
sumed menacing proportion In the
town of Mariner's Harbor on Staten
Island, has thrown residents Into a
panic. '•- '• >
Hundreds of persons have sold or
closed their houses and moved to other
parts of the Island.
The disease already has brought two
victims to the grave and at present 300
cases are under treatment. Victims
are first attacked by a nig hfever and
soon red blotches cover their bodies.
At its inception the malady confined
itself to the ranks of Austrian labor
ers, nearly 3000 of -whom have been,
brought to the town from Buffalo, N.
T. recently to construct new factory
buildings. Within the week, however,
the disease has spread to the. towns

By A««nMnt*»* Press.
ANNAPOLIS. Md.. Oct. 24.— Rear
Admiral Sands, superintendent of the
naval academy, today received the
navy department's approval of the
"withdrawal" of Midshipman Asahi
Kttigakl from the brigade at the acad
emy. The department's approval, ' it
is understood, was given "at the re
quest" of the Japanese embassy.
The authorities here received their
first Intimation of tho action on Mon
i day morning when the young man ten
! dered J his resignation under Instruc
tions from the embassy at Washington.
While it cannot be said positively that
Kltigaki used the word "Instructed,"
this was the understood . meaning of
his action. He was at once granted
leave and left for Washington on Mon
day afternoon.
■At the academy nothing can be
learned officially as to the causes
which led Kltigaki -to resign.
JAPAN RESENTS
COAST SENTIMENT
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 24.— With the
exception of a brief dispatch from Am
bassador Wright enclosing certain clip
pings from Japanese newspapers show
ing the feeling of resentment which the
Japanese people are exhibiting over the
anti-Japanese sentiment In California,
the 6tate department has nothing tq In
dicate that such a feeling exists.
Fear is expressed In some quarters
here, however, that persistent agitation
may result In an antl-Amerlcan boycott
in Japan that will dwarf In magnitude
the damage don« in American trade In
the orient by the boycott in China.

ONE MORE JUROR
TO BE CHOSEN
SAN FRANCISCO READY FOR
GRAFT EXPOSE
Aba Ruef Causes the Arrest of an
Editor and Says He Will
Strike Back at Hit
Enemies
By AmaoMkl Pr«-«s.
RAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 24.— Eighteen
of the nineteen men to compose the new
grand Jury which is to investigate
charges of alleged corruption in the
municipal administration and before
whom U Is expected that Francis J.
Henoy and Secret Service Agent Wil
liam J. Burns will present evidence of
alleged graft, and malfeasance In of
fice on the part of some municipal of
ficers, were selected today under the
supervision of Judge Thomas F. Gra
ham, presiding Judge of the superior
court.
Twelfe more names were drawn from
the jury box and subpoenaed to appear
before Judge Graham tomorrow after
noon, when the lnst man to complete
the grand jury will be selected. .
Heney, the new assistant district at
torney who has the Investigation in
charge, absolutely refused to talk to
day about his plans and declared that
he would give out no more Information
about the evidence he says he has col
lected against certain municipal officers
until It has been presented before tho
grand Jury and that body takes action.
Interest today centered in the selec
tion of the new grand Jury and In tho
action of Abe Ruef, the alleged politi
cal dictator of this city. In making
Rood his Intimation that he would strike
back at some of those whom he terms
hie enemies.
Ruef swore to a warrant in the police
Court charging R. A. Crothers, .editor
of the Bulletin, with criminal libel.
Over Water Supply
The charge Is based on an article
published In the Bulletin on October r>,
in which it Is set" forth that Ruef was
conspiring with certain interests in the
purchase of a municipal fvater supply
for the city for which he was to receive
a large sum of money.
Ruef Intimated today that thrre
would be some sensational develop
ments In a few days and declared thut
the coming week will be an interesting
one to the public.
He said that in a few days he ex
pected to be in a position to expose a
systematic attempt on the part of cer
tain people and Interests to put htm
out of business.
Although It was persistently rumored
today that the administration is plan
ning to remove District Attorney Lang
don from office and thus be in a. position
to dismiss Assistant District Attorney
Heney, no move indicating such inten
tion has yet been made by the admin
istration. ■. : ■ -
• That this has been under considera
tion, however, Acting Mayor Gallagher
admitted today, but he said that no
definite conclusion had been arrived <at.
Under the charter the mayor cannot
remove an elected officer and can only
recommend Langdon's removal to the
board of supervisors should Lang-don
refuse to resign' if his resignation is de
manded. '

WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.—1n his an- 1
nual report Brigadier General Elliott,
commandant of tho marine corp«, calls
attention to the necessity of an In
crease In tho commissioned and enlisted
personnel of the force*, and says thp
demandß for both officers and men are i
ctnlly Increarlug. . !
He states that unless prompt fiction
Is taken by conßreim during Its coming
bosbloti ho will be unable -to carry out
the directions of the secretary of tho
navy with regard to details,' both aahore
and afloat, and the efficiency of the
corps will suffer materially.
General Elliott Bays that the provis
ions of the general order of the depart
ment by which enlisted mon of the.
army nre entitled to campaign badges
for service ashore In Cuba, Porto Rico
and the Philippines during certain per- ■
lods arid for service ashore with tho,
Peking, reserves during th« boxer re- j
bellion, be made applicable to the men
of tho marine corps who were at that
time nerving with the army.
He said tho barracks at Mare ißland,
California, are unsafe, lnadeau-ite and
obsolete in design and construction. The
sanitary condition Is bad and he recom
mends $300,000 for new barrtcks and
$60,000 for officers' quarters.
The report also states that the ac*
eommodatlons for the marines at the
naval station at Cavite, P. 1., are not
only unsanitary and Inadequate, but
conduce to discontent and dUsatlsfao
tlon, as the ordinary comforts are not
Krnnted to the rren. He submits an es
timate of $75,000 fo rthe Improvement
of the grounds and buildings of bar
racks. ' ■
An ostlmnte of $100,000 Is submitted
for the construction of barrack!) and
officers' quarters at the navy yard at

the Immediate construction of proper
marine barracks on the isthmus of,
Panama to facilitate contentment and
»«meclally necessary for sanitary rea
sons.
General Elliott says that all the pub
lic buildings of the marine corps, in
cluding those recently constructed, can
be replaced by new buikilncrs at the
cost of not more than $1,500,000.
General Elliott says he appreciates
the Justice of the recommendation made
by the secretary of the navy, last year
that the. commandant of the marine
corps be given the rank of major gen
eral. - ' • '
The report says thit under the pres
ent methods and; rate of recruiting It
Is Believed that the marine corps will
be recruited to fts full strenarth before
the end of the present calendar year.
General Elliott states that as soon as
soon as the condition of the corps will
permit It is the Intention to Increase the
marine contingent In the Philippines
to a total of 1600 men, which is the
number recommended by the general
board of the navy and approved by the
department. .
There are 38 officers and 1300 enlisted
men now In the islands.
THROW ARMS INTO

: FROM MORO CASTLE
Secretary Taft's Promise at Departure

HAVANA,' Oct. 24.— The statement
made by Secretary Taft on the eve of
his departure from Cuba that he would
put all the arms surrendered by the
Insurgents where they would do no
further harm was verified today when
a company of the Cuban artillery spent
the afternoon throwing these weapons
Into the sea from the outer bastion of
Moro castle. ,•■ ■/ ■ ■ ' ■ . ■•'..-
1 Thousands of rifles and carbines were
sunk in thirty fathoms of water.
I Some unrest continues to prevail in
the provinces of Puerto Prlnclpo and
Santa Clara, where small armed bands
are roving and committing minor depre
dations. The residents of Holguln re
quested protection of I troops when a
considerable' body of former rebels who
are reported to have not disbanded, and
a battalion of the Eighth infantry
reached Holguln this afternoon: - '
The mayor of Aguacate, In - the
province of Havana,' -who was ousted
from offloe, v.-as restored to his posi

course of the stream, today witnessed
what seems to be at last a triumph
for the engineers, for today two f eot
of water Is running; in the Colorado's
old channel, and the conclusion Is that
hencefoward the gigantic work' of di
version will be steadily and increasing*
ly accomplished by natural law. .
Like Nile's Delta
Should ' the present partial victory
prove to bo complete, an area of 600,000
acres of Irrigable , lands akin to ■ the
delta of the Nile in productiveness and
climatic conditions will have been i re
claimed from artificial ruin.
. Never In the history of western rail
roadlng has a more desperatt and - lo
termlned battle been waged " against
physical- conditlens. An Inkling of the
truth of this assertion may be gained
by knowing that during tht final strug
gle, now apparently victorious, every
flat car. on three divisons of the South
ern Pacific has been . brought into ser
vice, ' hauling 'rock 400 miles to be
dumped by the hundreds of thousands
of tons Into the Colorado river— an av
erage of one carload of rock being de
livered every five minutes, day and
night.- - . .
. The cost of this stupendous work has
been estimated at $10,000 a day. Both
the Salt Lake and Banta Fe railroads
contributed to the Southern - Pacific's
struggle against nature' by 'lending
their quarries, . full capacity,' for the
fast vetting out of rock.
