said Bdrlc Eldrldge, senior member of

wholesale grocers of Boston, Mass., to
a Herald reporter yesterday in discuss
ing the recall i.ssue in Los Angeles.
According to Mr. Eldridge, every in
fluential business man of Boston who
has the welfare of the city at heart is
strongly in favor of the recall, and Mr.
Eldrldge, who is at the Angelus, is
deeply Interested in the outcome of the
movement in Los Angeles to oust a

During the recent mayoralty term of
Mayor John F. Fitzgerald of Boston
the affairs of the city became in such a

to have the state legislature govern
the affairs of the city, and, according
to -Mr. Eldrldge, if the recall measure
hart been a law in Massachusetts at
the time it doubtless would have been
As it was, the only remedy was the
action of the Boston finance commis
sion, a body composed of the most in
fluential business men of the city,
which appointed a committee to revise
the charter. The committee, of which
Mr. Eldridge is a member, was unani
mous in declaring for the recall clause.
Another clause in the proposed char
ter revision was the abolition of party
nominations in municipal affairs.
All Favored Recall
AVhile the recall movement was ac
cepted without dissent, the abolition of
party nominations prior to municipal
elections met with some opposition.
Mr. Eldrldge, who is as strongly op
posed to party nominations as he is in
favor of the recall, hopes that the Mas
sachusetts legislature will embody this
provision when it takes final action on
the new city charter.
Mr. Eldridge believes Los Angeles is
one of the greatest cities in the United
States, and says the present recall
movement has aroused favorable com
ment in the east and thinks himself
fortunata In being in Los Angeles at
this time, as the information which he
is si i king will be valuable in the re
vision of the Boston city charter.
"That The Herald is doing a valu
able public service is evident," said Mr.
Eldridge, "and the results of such a
strenuous campaign as it is conducting
Will have lasting effects and Should be
a warning to public grafters in the fu
ture. The recall idea is new to the

Boston unanimously voted to have it

•■The charter, in its revised condition,
must be accepted by the legislature

the city council of Boston consists of
eighty-eight men, but the idea of the

garding the recall, for I am looking for
information myself, and I think you
westerner" are far in advance of our
people in the east.
"The idi a that the recall movement
will bring ridicule on Loa Angeles is
incorrect, as the special election Will be
closely watched by every city, Thei
stand taken by The Herald cannot be
praised too highly.
"Not being in close touch with the
politics of Los Angeles, 1 can only s;\y

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 7, 1905.
PROHIBITIONISTS SELECT CAN
Cold Water Party Decides to Work
for Election of C. E. Verge.
High Praise for Alex.
The Prohibitionists have a recall can
didate for mayor in C. X Ycrge of 1721
RoOSevelt street, who was nominated
last night by the Federation of Prohi
bition dubs, and who accepted with the
intimation that if elected mayor he
would first pay attention to the polio*
commission and later take up the board
of public works.
The following platform was adopted
for the campaign by the Prohibition
"The evidence seems to be clear and
convincing that llayor A. C. Harper
has been derelict in and unfaithful to
his duties as mayor in that he has:
"First—Palled to enforce the law
against gambling:, permitting numerous
places of that character to continue to
iieece and rob the unwary and the
stranger, even after the evidence of
such crime had been given to tho chief
o! police, and had been made public by
The Herald; that he retained for two
years as chief of police Edward Kern,
whom the grand jury reported patron
ized such gambling places and so stul
tified and compromised himself as a
police official that he paralyzed his
ability to enforce the law against gam
"Second—That instead of enforcing
the prohibitory laws enacted by the
state legislature Against the owners,
lessees and occupants of houses used
for purposes of prostitution, immorality
and lewdness (as under his oath of of
fice he had sworn to do) he encouraged
the violation of such laws by endeavor-
Ing to Ft'Rregate and regulate such vi
cious and immoral places by driving
them into certain streets and sections
of our city and by visiting them per
sonally with his friends.
"Third—That he has failed utterly
in enforcing many of the restrictive
features of the excise law, but has per
mitted their violation with impunity on
numerous occasions, until the city has
been more nearly an "open town" than
for many years.
"Fourth—That he has made It much
more difficult to enforce any of these
enactments against immoral and vi
cious resorts by:
"(a)—Permitting: the sale of stock
in oil companies and sugar companies
in which he was an official and a large
stockholder, to the saloonkeepers,
gamblers and owners of questionable
"(b)—Appointing as commissioners
and members of his official family men
who were owners of or agents for
buildings used for immoral purposes
even alter his attention had been called
to the facts by the press.
"As property owners and taxpayers
we are especially interested in the
prompt and economic construction of
the Dwons river aqueduct. To that
end it is absolutely necessary that the
board of public works should be com
posed of high class and capable men
commanding public confidence and re
spect, and absolutely free from poli
tical influence or control. We joined
heartily In the successful efforts led
by the commercial bodies of our city
three years ago to prevent Mayor Mc-
Alecr from making the board of pub
lic works a Republican party machine.
We are now equally determined that
Mayor Harper shall not succeed in
making that board a Democratic party
machine. The death or resignation of
either General Chaffee or R. Hubbard
would give Mayor Harper the oppor
tunity of appointing another man of
the qualifications and political training
of Edward Kern, and our board of pub
lic works, with its millions of money,
would then become a political machine
and control the richest of political jobs
for their hungry henchmen, and the
taxpayer would be compelled to foot
the bills, and many millions of dol
lars would be added to the twenty
three millions already voted.
"We are unwilling to take the risks
involved In continuing in office for a
single additional month an official who
has thus prostituted to base and igno
ble purposes the high honors, preroga
tives and influences possessed by the
mayor of Los Angeles. We therefore
; joined heartily in the effort to recall
i Mayor Harper by circulating and
signing the recall petition.
"Since the citizens, led by the Muni
cipal league, have nominated George
Alexander as their candidate for
I mayor to run against Mayor Harper,
we desire to place on record the follow
"We consider Mr. Alexander a
i straightforward, upright and honor
able gentleman. As supervisor he was
ever anxious to protect the people's in
terests and to defeat the scheming and
selfish influences, whether political or
' commercial, thta are ever alert to ex
ploint the public treasury.
Praise for Alexander
"We desire to state most emphati
cally that we hope Mr. Alexander will
be elected, a.-, we do not consider there
is any comparison between him and
Mayor Harper in integrity and honor
and ability to fill the mayor's chair
with credit and safety, but we never
\ theless cannot vote for him for the fol
"The basis principle of the. Prohibi
tion party philosophy is that a pro
hibitionists cannot consistently vote for
i a man for mayor who would appoint a
j police commission that would grant 11
--j censes to sell liquor for beverage pur-
I poses under any conditions or circum
| .stances whatever.
"Mr. Alexander is not a Prohibi
tlonist. He maintains that as long as
the majority of the people vote in fa
vor of license he as a public servant
will execute their wishes. We shall
not on this occasion criticise him for
his position. In fact we believe that
accepting the nomination and election
under the conditions which he has he
can do no less than to continue the
license policy, but, anxious as we are
for his election, we carjnot stultify the
political principles and convictions for
which many of us have stood for a life
time, nor are we willing to be morally
responsible for the legalized destruc
tion of our fellow-citizens and the end
less suffering of their wives and fami
lies that must inevitably follow a con
tinuance of the license policy; therefore
"Resolved by the Federation of Pro
hibition Clubs', That we, here and now
select a candidate for mayor whose
name may be written on the ballot by
all those who cannot conscientiously
M.ie for Mr. Alexander."

SUIT LAID OVER
NOT UNTIL AFTER ELECTION
NEED HE TESTIFY
Attorneys for Express Eager to Pro.
ceed at Once, but Mayor's Coun
sel Enters Voluminous
Mayor A. C. Harper, through his
attorneys, was able yesterday to secure
a continuance in the trial of the libel
suit brought by him against, the Ex
press. Judge Conrey continued the
suit until May 10, two months beyond
the time originally set and almost a
month and a half after the date of the
Attorneys representing the evening;
paper stated their readiness to go to
trial. The mayor's counsel tiled a
voluminous affidavit containing their
reasons why the trial should not pro
ceed on the day set by the court sev
eral months ago.
"I believe it would not be to the in
terest of the proper administration of
justice to try this case during the con
troversy incident to the recall elec
tion," said Judge Conrey. "The court
certainly would not have set the case
for trial at this time if it had known
such an election would be held."
This decision was in line with the
reasons contained In the mayor's plea
for a continuance, and, whether the
ruling of the court was in favor of or
adverse to Harper's contentions, the
fact was apparent that the latter feared
the effect on his ultra-precarious po
litical fortune? of the evidence that
would have been brought out at the
Draw Natural Inference
By many persons it was regarded as
almost a confession that the statements
contained in the publications to which
the mayor objected, which form the
basis of the damage suit, were so truth
ful that Harper did not dare at this
time to place himself in a position
whire they cnuld be substantiated in
court and made a part of the record.
A large number of spectators was in
the court room yesterday. The con
trast between the mayor's action in
pleading for a continuance of the dam
age suit and his attitude of injured in.
noccnee and determination to refute
through legal proceedings the charges
made against him when the action was
tiled was not lost upon those present.

[From the Los Angel" Express]
NOT FACE TRIAL
Mayor of City Dodges, Squirms and
Pleads for Delay in Libel Suits
Against the Express—Post
poned to May 10
The expected has happened. The
predictions of the Express have oomo
true. Mayor Harper, through his at
torneys, has employed delay tactlci in
the libel suits brought by him against
the Express and ha» had them con
tinued until May 10, a date beyond that
fixed for the recall election.
The Express has always believed,
and has always contended, that these
suits were instituted by Mayor Harper
for the sole purpose of their possible
effect upon the deliberations and find
ings of the grand jury—a purpose
which failed. ,
The Express has always believed and
contended that it was never the inten
tion of Mayor Harper to permit these
cases to come to trial. It has been and
is our belief and contention that Mayor
Harper dares not face the evidenco
which is in the possession of the Ex
press and which can be produced in
court under oath in support of the
charges made by the Express that vice
was protected In Los Angeles.
Belief on this subject lias been ma
terially strengthened by the strenuous
efforts of the mayor and his attorneys
to avoid a trial at this critical junc
ture when, if the charges made by thi;
Express are U"ue, and could be shown
publicly in open court to be true, the
overwhelming defeat of Mayor Harper
in the recall election would inevitably
If Mayor Harper were not guilty as
charged by the Express of protecting
vice in Los Angeles he would welcome
and court the opportunity to appear
before a Jury of his fellow citizens and
offer to them, in the form of sworn
testimony, the proof of his innocence.
If he is guilty—lf he has protected
vice—if ho did connive at the segrega
tion of certain forms of vice into a
protected district to the benefit of a
syndicate previously informed from
official sources of this Intended segre
gation—then of course he could not, !f
it could ljossibly be avoided, afford to
have the evidence of those facts put
squarely before the public through a
c ourt of justice and in a form in which
their truth and conclusiveness could
not bo. questioned,
That would moan inevitable defeat
noi only for himself, but. for the po
litical boosters, heelers and machine
men who are supporting him in this
campaign because of their love for
Harper or their fear of the recall as
an Instrument in the hands of the peo
ple to compel good government.
The action of the mayor and his at
torneys in straining every effort to
avoid facing the evidence in the pos
session of the Express of the truth of
the charges made by the Express
against the mayor proves beyond any
question of doubt thg, truth of those
charges and the fear of the mayor to
