, 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.

I! SAN FRANCISCO, March 4.— ln what his accusers decry
! 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.

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

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
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,

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

railway transportation, and told the
commissioners he thought the adoption
of a six-foot gauge for railroads would

Collision Occurs on
Long Beach
San Pedro Car Runs Into
Rear End of
Pacific Electric Officials Try to Keep
Information of Disaster from
Friends of Injured and
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
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.

the wreck, were referred to Claim Ad
juster F. A. Green. 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
