"It. would avail nothing to veto it', as the bill was pHsned by more than a two thl-ds majority In the legislature, and by the same vote would pass over my head, regardless of my disapproval. "The advocates of a change of the seat of government to Berkeley have won In the legislature and I do not be lieve that I should attempt to thwart ilip will of so great a majority of the lawmaking body. "Then, too, It is a question that sooner or later will crop up agnin and must u« voted upon by the people, some time, and It will cost the state nothing to -vote upon it and settle it now. Gillett Is Neutral 1 So far an my atand on the question in.- i.p«n oonoo.rnpil I have romainml strictly neutral and have taken neither one side or the other. Parties from both sides have been to see me and hava sought to draw me Into the controversy, but I have steadfastly refused to allow my name to be used or to exert any influence one way or the other. It Is but a formal matter to sign the bill and submit It to the people of the state, wh/> will decide the question of where they want the capital. "It Is said that a large fund is being raised in Sacramento to carry on a systematic campaign In all parts of the state against the removal of the cap ital." The assembly this morning refused to reconsider the passage of the bill.

ANTI.RACE TRACK yIILL NOW CONSIDERED TO BE DOWN AND OUT By Associated Press. , SACRAMENTO, Cal., Mavch The sonata today practically killed Eshle man's anti-race track measure by re fusing to recall It from the committee on public morals, and defeated Miller's "Texas car law" bill, after a debate which took up almost the entire fore noon session. «.,¦'-» The senate also refused to reconsid er the passage of Wright's bill making it a felony for newspapers to criticize juries and comment upon criminal trials while in progress. Senator Bell attempted to force the anti-race track bill onto the senate floor by introducing a resolution re calling it from committee. The reso lution was refused adoption by a vote of 11 ayes and 22 noes, which practi cally means that the measure Is dead. 'Bell stated that Chairman Irish of the committee on ' public morals had promised to report the bill out, but had failed to do so. He then saw the rank ing senator of the committee (Leavitt). who said that there was no use In call ing a meeting of the committee and told Bell to go ahead and "put in your reso lution." , - : Bell Reads Resolution ¦ . : Wolfe made a point of order that Bell ¦was talking on the merits of the bill Instead of on the policy of withdrawal from - committee. There was a dis position shown to shut Bell oft. but the latter persisted and read a resolution adopted by. the Los Angeles republican county convention Instructing their senator! to work for the passage of the bill. \ .'. ¦ Leavitt contented himself with re marking, "It's an old chestnut. Ev erybody understands that I am op posed to the withdrawal of the bill." i Senator Miller this morning called up nil car bill, a counterpart of the Texas car law, providing a penalty of $25 a day on railroads for. failure to furnish cars after they hud been ordered and the same penalty for shippers who fail ed ¦ to unload cars within forty-eight hours. A long debate followed. Miller stated that in times of car shortage the railroads took their cars to the states which provided such a penalty, cited an Instance when the Southern Pacific took 300 oil cars from Bakersfleld to Texas when oil men in Bakersfleld could not get cars. Charges Discrimination , He charged the railroad with dis crimination by furnishing the Asso ciated Oil company, fifty-one per cent of which if alleged to be owned by the Southern Pacific, with cars when the '"dependent oil producers could get That hundreds of carloads of fruit had rotted because the railroads had Ituutluurll on fo*«- TWO.)

I "an effort to accomplish indefinite delay in the criminal proceed ,., '. ings against him," Abraham Ruef today caused his bondsmen to ! surrender him to the sheriff and then went before Superior Judge < > Hebbard with an application for a temporary writ of habeas < • corpus in the matter of the five felony counts returned against - > him by the grand jury. The writ was granted and made returnable at 1 :30 o'clock ' ; in the afternoon. At that hour Judge Hebbard denied the writ and remanded ; [ Ruef to the custody of the sheriff, but granted the defendant's ; application for a writ of error. This had the effect of staying the ; trial in the superior court and enabling an appeal. ; Judge Hebbard fixed new bonds in the total sum of $50,000, 1 and they were at once furnished by the sureties who earlier in ', ! the day had surrendered Ruef to the sheriff. 1 This done, Ruef's attorneys made application to the United ! States supreme court through the clerk of the United States cir '<» cuit court here for a permanent writ of error — which, should it '< ' be granted, would relieve the accused from further prosecution < • of the felonies on which he stands indicted. The necessary preliminary papers were issued by the circuit ; court clerk, and Ruef now has sixty days, or until May 2, in ; which to prepare the record on appeal and forward it to Wash ; ington. Ruef bases his appeal to the highest court in the land on ; the constitutional contention, already denied by Superior Judges ; Dunne and Hebbard in distinct proceedings, that one of the ; members of the grand jury which indicted him was disqualified ; I as a grand juror because he had served as a petty juror the pre 1 ceding year, and that therefore the indictments are technically % void. IN GREAT GAME ADAMS ONLY A PAWN By Associated Press. WALLACE, Idaho, March 4.— "Steve Adams Is only a pawn in the great game that is being played. The prose cutors in this case do not believe Adams is guilty. They never did be lieve it." So drohwed .Ttrtfge E. F. Richardson today In his plea to the jury to acquit Steve Adams of the crime of killing Fred Tyler. He based his plea upon the theory that the state is only mak ing use of Adams for the purpose of convicting others; that this trial is but a_ minor issue in the great fight between the Mine Owners' association and the Western Federation of Miners. A feature of Judge Richardson's ad dress this morning was his severe de nunciation of detectives in general and the Plnkerton agency as represented by McPartland, in particular. "Tho Pinkerton detective agency," he declared, "Is not an organization that Is known to the law. "It Is a private interest, working for private ends, or perhaps obeying the behest of some one holding private po sition, who employs it," he said. Judge Richardson denounced the methods used by McPartland in ob taining the confession, working on his feelings and affection for his wife and babies.

HARRIMAN PAYS A FRIENDLY VISIT By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, March i.—TB. H. Harriman spent some time in the offlca of the interstate commerce commission today. The visit was informal, and a variety of topics were touched upon during Mr. Harriman's talk with tho comm isslonevs. There was some talk nbout the repair of the break In the Colorado river, which Mr. Harriman explained to the commissioners, referring particularly to the prompt manner In which the work had been done by the Southern Pacific railroad. Questions of equipment for railroads furnished an Interesting topic, Mr. Har riman expressing a preference for tha larger steel car with a capacity of 100, 0 pounds in place of the smaller cars, and especially those of wooden con struction, which in his opinion must be relegated to the background. Mr. Harriman was also inclined to tha opinion that there gradually would be an Increase in the use of electricity in railway transportation, and told the commissioners he thought the adoption of a six-foot gauge for railroads would have been better for the country and the roads than the 4 feet 8V& inches standard gauge. The commission has set for April the arguments on the testimony taken at the Harriman hearing In New York last week.

A REAR END COLLISION WRECKS TWO ELECTRICS SCORE ARE l INJURED 111 CAR WRECK Collision Occurs on Long Beach Line San Pedro Car Runs Into Rear End of Flyer Pacific Electric Officials Try to Keep Information of Disaster from Friends of Injured and Newspapers A rear end collision on the Pacific Electric railroad at 6:15 o'clock last night wrecked two cars and Injured twonty-one persons. The Long Beach flyer, checking speed when trolley left the wire, was overtaken by San Pedro car No. 264 at Forty-seventh street and Long Beach avenue. The Long Beach car was running nearly twenty miles and hour and its pursuer almost twice that speed. Both cars were thrown from the track and the 150 passengers were taken from the splintered ruins of the walls of the cars, the seats and the windows. The wreck is said to have been caused by the failure of Conductor C. H. Herndon of the Long Beach to display tail lights, or to sig nal with his lantern when his car be gan to slow down, after the trolley left the wire. The na.mos of- the injured rwere gath ered with great difficulty, many of the victims having left the wreck without any of the representatives of the com pany inquiring their names. Walt Long for Relief According to several who were In jured, more than half an hour passed before relief or medical aid arrived. Most of the Injured persons were in the rear car, the San Pedro car being more heavily crowded than the flyer. Motorman O'Shea of the San Pedro car saw the car ahead checking speed when fifty yards behind It and whistled several times. Herndon was trying to connect the trolley and apparently did not see the approaching San Pedro car. O'Shea set the brakes, but the rails were slippery with the rain and the uncontrolled car, lurching with renewed speed down a slight grade, hurled itself against the other. The rear platform was torn off. The heavy frame work of the car, driven with frightful impact, tore through the rear of the Long Beach car.- Although both cars were derailed neither was overturned, which prob ably acounts for the lack of fa talities. Tears Shirt for Bandages In the rear car every seat was torn loose, as well as the cash register and all the inner panels of the walls. After the uninjured passengers had recovered from the benumbing effect of the shock the work of taking out the cut and bleeding victims was begun. R. J. Frledmann of San Pedro led the rescue work, tearing his shirt In shreds to help stay the flow of blood of those most severely injured. Conductor Packard, who was the least dangerously injured of the train crew, telephoned immedltttely to the Pacific Electric hospital for help. Messages were sent for nearby physicians, but there was a long delay before any ar rived, said by the passengers to have been half an hour. Those of the in jured who had not already left or had been taken home by friends were placed on a relief car and taken to the Pacific Electric hospital in the stution. At the scene of the wreck, at the com pany's hospital and at the emergency hospital, where a number of the in jured were taken, every possible effort was made to suppress information re garding the wreck. At the station em ployes wore stationed to withstand in quirers. When a man's injuries had been attended to he was taken from the place in charge of an attendant and no ono was allowed to speak to him. It required the time of two men nearly two hours to keep inquiring reporters from J. I. Spauldlng of San Pedro, but when Spauldlng was hidden away on a car and spirited away a reporter was by his side and got his story.

Mr. Green was not communicative, and as soon as the in jured had been cared for disappeared. "He has been unable to get any names of the Injured," the clerk said at his office. "No one knows who they are." Mr. Green was traced to the emer gency hospital. "He has just left to go to his office," was the answer to an in quiry. "He has just gone home," said his clerk at the office. An attempt was made to reach Mr. Green by telephone. There was a long wait. "He has taken the receiver oft the hook, and we won't be able to get him." said the operator finally. The emergency hospital was called up for the names of those who had been taken there. "No one has any list. of the Injured," the inquirer was told, "except Dr. Cates. He will know them." Dr. Cates was found and knew of only one person. Refuses to Give Names Miss Elizabeth Merrill of Florence, a sister of Miss Avalon Merrill, who was taken to the emergency hospital, cut and bruised, knew that her sister had been on the wrecked car and called up the emergency hospital to learn if Bhe were among the injured. "There is no list of injured," the young woman was told. "My sister Is missing, and I know she was on the car; I must know If she is there," Miss Merrill replied. "We cannot give you the names of the in jured," was the answer again. A long parley followed, In which Miss Merrill finally was victorious and learned that her sister was at the hospital. "May I see her?" she asked. "No," was the answer. "No one will be allowed to speak to any of the injured." The company's superintendent, F. Van Franken, gave out a "report" which contained the information that two cars of certain numbers had col lided with each other. This was all Mr. Van Franken knew about it. He said he might have some more Infor mation today. Injured Tell Story J. B. Spalding and B. F. Echols, two men who were cut and bruised, gave a more Interesting account. Spalding lives in San Pedro. "I sat near the front end of the car and saw every detail of the wreck," he said. "I leaped to my feet with sudden grinding of the brakes and lurched for ward to the front platform, as the speed was slightly checked. I saw the San Pedro car an Instant before the wreck, and I believe It had no tall lights and I know the conductor did not Big nal with his lantern. More than half an hour passed before medical aid reached us, and I waited fully that length of time at the station before my head was bandaged." B. F. Echols. Sixty-fifth street and Long Beach avenue, told his story as he waited at the station for a car to return home. Echols Is 68 years of age. His face and nose were cut. "I waited an hour at their hospital, and I was suffering so I had to go and look for a doctor myself. I found one and got fixed up. I Just bought a ticket to go back home on. They didn't ask me for my name. I started to tell them a couplo of times, but they didn't seem to want it." -A man who had been escorted from the station and smuggled on a car by two employes, was asked for his name. "No you don't," he said. "They put me wise. They told me what might hap pen If I told the newspapers anything. I want to get something out of this." His name is J. F. Marlowe and he lives at 408 Center street, San Pedro. Drs. Cates and Stern, the Pacific Electric physicians, did effective work in curing for the Injured, and with the exception of the six who were taken to the emergency hospital, all were taken to their homes. At a late hour last night none were reported to be In danger. EIGHTY-iMVE BURIED BY A BIG LANDSLIDE By Associated Press.
