Democrats Repudiate 'Inter
view' in Which They Declare
for Joseph Call
Old Political Trick Will Be Foiled
by Adherents of Theo
dore Bell
(CnnilmiFil troxp mire One)
for the office of governor. I am for
Mr Bell f! at, last and always."
Friends of. Isidore Dockweiler, whom
the Hearst organ attempted yesterday
to put forward, by Inference, as in
favor of Mr. Call entering the- race
against Mr, Bell, said yesterday that
before Mr. Dockweller's departure for
the east he had repeatedly expressed
his conviction that Mr. 801 l was the
"strongest man In the Democratic
party for the office of governor," and
Insisted that Mr. Dockweller had never
regarded Mr. Call in any other light
than a prospective candidate for rail
road commissioner.
Close personal friends 06 Mr. Call,
Including scores of the most prominent
leaders, who have been shoulder to
shoulder with him for years' in Cali
fornia politics, proclaim that the work
of the Hearst organ Is an S. P. trick
to divide tho sentiment of the Demo
cratic party, and thus to .permit the
S. P. to put up a third candidate —a
"machine" man. These friends and
Democratic leaders say there positive
ly has been nothing done or said by
Mr. Call to justify the Hearst organ
in Its shameful effort to disrupt the
party. * '
Mr. Call is absent In the north, has
repeatedly refused to become a candi
date for governor, and so informed the
Hearst organ before his departure.
'I'll- Hearst organ has taken advant
age of his absence, say Hr. Call's
friends, to make him the Innocent cat
paw by which Hearst hopes to pay
his debt to the Harriman Interests by
eventually dragging out a "machine"
chestnut to defeat Mr. Bell.
mm ALSO Mis<jroTK.»
Mattison B. Jones, one of the men
vbo also was outrageously misquoted
in the Hearst organ yesterday, said:
"I did not say what the Examiner
says I said. They made a botch of my
statements, I said I thought Mr. Call
is ii splendid man, and would make a
good governor. Bo might many others;
but 1 understand Mr. Call Is to be the
candidate for railroad commissioner.
That settles It. No man could make a
better railroad commissioner. But Mr.
Bell is a candidate for the governor
ship, and no man could make a better
So on down the list of fake inter
views, wherever these men could be
found so they could make a statement,
it was the same reply: "I was mis
quoted " or "It is an Infamous misrep
resentation," or "It is ridiculous," "I
never said It," etc.. etc.
With this unmistakable brand of
falsehood hurried Into the so-called in
terviews of the Hearst organ, it is
probable no further attention will be
paid to Its political rasMity, as the
leading Democrats of Los Angeles who*
were innocently Involved In the Hearst
fiasco took Immediate steps yesterday
to correct the wrong impression con
veyed by the Hearst organ, and to set
themselves right before the state s
Democracy. As Hearst's hand, and thn
directing Influence of the S. P., thus
have been clearly exposed and de
nounced, it is not probable the Hearst
organ will succeed in stirring up any
further difficulty. With the Democratic
leaders thoroughly informed of Hearst's
method, It should not bo difficult for
all of the voters soon to learn the facts,
as most of them already have done,
and hence to realize and discharge their
duty accordingly.
Some men are such confirmed grum
bler that they frequently grumble
merely because they have nothing to
grumble at.—Chicago Record Herald.

More Evidence Given of Railroad
Favoritism Toward San
Hearing Goes Over to June, When
Stockton Business Men
Will Be Heard
Yesterday afternoon the state rail
road commission adjourned its hearing
of the complaint of the Los Angeles
Jobbers against the freight rates Into
the San Joaquln valley until June 2,
when the commission will meet in
Stockton to hear the plea of the Stock
ton merchants that the present rates
are also discriminatory against that
Although the commission ruled
Thursday that the case of the Los
Angelei Jobbers would not be compli
cated by permitting other cities to in
troduce evidence, Commissioner Lovo
land stated that the commission de
sired to make the rates equitable for
all parties concerned in their use.
Atfer a short session In Stockton the
commission will meet in San Francisco
to hear the protests of the merchants
there against changing the rates, after
which the Southern Pacific will present
its defense. The commission will then
come to Los Angeles for the presenta
tion of evidence in rebuttal by the
Los Angeles Jobbers.
The hearing yesterday was along the
lamfl lines as on previous days of the
tx-.irlner, men prominently Identified
with tin? upbuilding of commercial Los
Angeles testifying that the difference
in freight rates enjoyed by Los Ange
les and San Francisco prevented profit
able business in the San Joaquin val
ley, many of them saying that they
had given up all attempt at seeking
business further i rth than Bakerafleld,
which is far this side of the half-way
point between the two cities.
All of the witnesses testified that it
is necessary to allow their customers
In the valley to deduct the differential
In the freight rates in order to get
business at all, an arrangement which
not only cuts into the profits of the
Los Angeles jobbers but loses them
trade through the dislike of the
merchants to spend valuable time in
figuring the complicated discounts In
volved, when they can purchase from
the San Francisco houses and remit the
face value of their Invoices without
It was also brought out that the
high rate on staple goods, which do
not permit the, allowance of equaliza
tion reductions to buyers, are responsi
ble for the loss of many thousands of
dollars in sales of the more profitable
side lines, the merchants naturally
preferring to concentrate their pur
chases and buy these goods from the
Finno houses which furnish their sta
O T. Helpling. traffic manager for
the smith, Booth. Usher company, who
also is the traffic agent for the Pacific
Light and Power company and the
San Joaquin Light and Power com
pany, said that Los Angeles dealers
In machinery not only have to meet
severe competition from the San Fran
cisco dealers, but to allow freight dif
ferentials in order to obtain business
at all. The power companies, he tes
tified, are backed by Los Angeles men
who naturally preferred to purchase
their supplies in this city, but have
been compelled by Jfhe high rates to
purchase thousands of dollars worth
of machinery in the northern city.
A. B. Qoldwater, representing the
Stewart-Dawes Shoe company, said
that his company obtained only a small
share of the business to which they
considered themselves entitled in the
valley, and then only at the expese
of deep cuts In their profits for freight
differentials. On cross-examination he
said that he considered the territory
south of Fresno as ground to which
the Los Angeles dealers were entitled
to an even break with San Francisco,
as far as freight rates are concerned.
Attorney Purbrow of the Southern Pa
cific was discomfited In an attempt to
make the witness admit that he was
encroaching on San Francisco territory
by selling an advertised line of shoes
for which lila firm has the Southern
California agency north of Fresno.
"What does the San Francisco
house, which has the Northern Cali
fornia agency for this same line of
shoes consider as the southern point
of their territory?" said Mr. Durbrow.
■•San Diego." said Mr. Goldwater.
Edward Chambers, traffic manager
for the Santa Fe railway, was placed
on the stund by Attorney Loet), repre
senting' the Los Angeles jobbers, and
admitted that the sudden recall of the
lower rates promulgated In 190, was
due to the Influence of San Francisco
jobbers. _____ - _^ # .
Senator Wants Work Concen
trated on Promising
WASHINGTON, April 15.—At the
rate of progress made by the senate in
the consideration of the rivers and har
bors bill, the railroad bill will De side
tracked for some time. Only tour or
five pages of the former mesaure were
disposed ot- , .
Senator Burton occupied most of the
time in the delivery of a speech sharply
antagonizing the system of making riv
er improvements, and will continue to
morrow. He said the country had gone
wild over the construction of locks and
to questions by Mr. New
lands, Mr. Burton said he believed at
tention should be concentrated largely
on the more promising projects. He in
stanced two as deserving especial at
tension. These were the Ohio river from
Pittsburg to Cairo, and the canal route
from Buffalo to the Hudson river.
Speaking of the possibilities ot a deep
waterway from Chicago to the Gulf of
Mexico Mr Burton ridiculed the Idea
that ships could go through canal and
river and sea to New Orleons and to
He advocated a system under which
local communities should share the cost
of the work. This system, he said, ib
largely in operation in Europe.
After speaking for three hoars Mr.
Burton suspended for the day, and the
reading of the bill proceeded.
Newly Elected Congressman Ad
vises Insurgents to Enter
Democratic Fold
ROCHESTER, N. T., April 15.—The
campaign in the thirty-second congres
sional district reached its stage of
greatest interest tonight when the
largest meeting In the contest In be
half of the Democratic candidate,
James S. Havens, was held in conven
tion hall. The main speaker was Con
gressman Eugene N. Foss, the Demo
crat recently elected In the fourteenth
district of Massachusetts. Representa
tive Foss assailed, "insurgency" and
the protective tariff policy of the rul
ing party. He declared that he now
"enjoyed in his various enterprises
from 45 to 100 per cent protection."
"It Is too much," he added. "I don't
need the protection and I ought not to
have it. All that I have above a
certain point represents tariff graft. I
am willing that the protection should
be cut right in half, and then I would
have all I am entitled to, or need."
Mr. Foss declared that his election
means that the people are tired of
the Aldrlch bill.
"It Is a demand of Massachusetts
and of all New Kngland for free raw
material, untaxed food products and
wider markets. It is a demand that
we treat Canada decently and that we
take down our tariff, wail against
"I should go ko far as to say," he
continued, "that we should do this
whether Canada lowered hers or not.
We are the sufferers. We need her
lumber, her coal and Iron, her wood
pulp and her other products."
Noted Prelate of Catholic Church
Declares New Testament of
Individual Inspiration
"I do not want to ridicule any one,
but we a/c face to face with a vital
problem. The New Testament is a cre
ation of the church by a few of Its
best members—all of them preached, all
went into the ministry with enthusi
asm; they were the living church,
and incidentally in leisure wrote out
this, that and the other."
' These were the expressions of Rt.
Rev. Bishop John J. Keane in his lec
ture last night on "The Church and the
Bible," In a course of lectures which lie
is giving under the auspices of the
Knights of Columbus in the Mason op
era house.
Bishop Keane defined the position of
the Catholic church regarding the di
vinity of the Bible.
"There are two theories regarding the
Bible," said the bishop. "One, the Cath
olic theory, and the other—and I mean
no offense when I say It—the Protest
ant. We differ In other ways, but that
is incidental, while we differ on this,
and this is fundamental. The Catholic
thenry Is that Jesus Christ established
a church, a real orgunism, not a mere
organization, which was to continue
through all time.
"The other theory is that God speaks,
not through the church, but to the sin
gle individual; that the New Testa
ment consists of Individual Inspiration.
We believe It was not the person but
the office instituted. 'As the father has
sent me, so I send you." The church ot
apostolic days was one with preten
sions of universality. We have sacra
ments and a hierarchy with yte inde
"The claim looks strange. Our Lord
never wrote a line and never gave a
command that a line be written. The
apostles wrote little, but all preached.
The church labored fifty years before it
was written. It was written by the
church after perfect organization, and
is the product of the Christian church,
written incidentally, casually, with no
set purpose to contain a complete rec
ord of what our Lord taught.
"I don't want to minimize the value
of the New Testament. How could I,
who believe in the church which creat
ed it and preserved it? The New Tes
tament was never intended to be a rule
of faith or a standard. The books were
written incidentally, with no attempt
at complementing one another. It was
never written with the purpose of mak
ing it into one.
"You who are not of our faith hear
the little child say, *God bless our
holy Mother church." You never use
such speech. We speak of Jesus Christ
as an only mediator standing between
us and God, not isolated from the in
carnation, but living as the head of the
church, and we come to him through
her. This is our holy mother church."
This evening Bishop Koane will speak
on "The Pope: His Office and Prerog
The closing of the series will be given
Sunday evening at 8 o'clock in the Ma
son opera house. Bishop Keane will
speak on "Why I Am a Catholic."
Opening of Border Custom House
Indicates S. P. Will Use
New Route
EL CENTRO, April 15.—The new cus
tom house of the Mexican government
at Los Algodones, Just over the inter
national boundary line on the Inter-
California railroad, about seven miles
down the Colorado river from Yuma,
was opened yesterday for business.
It is believed the opening of this cus
tom house and the establishment of a
corps of officials means that at an
early date at least one Southern Pacific
overland train will be operated from
yuma by way of the Inter-California
railroad and through Imperial valley,
instead of over the old route skirting
the sand hills along the extreme east
erly part of this basin. Such a change
would be of much benefit in advertising
the resources of the valley to thousands
of passengers carried by the overland
Senor Francisco Barron, Mexican
consul at Yuma, has charge of the a*
tails of the opening of the new station
for the Mexican government.
The officials to be established at Los
Algodones include a collector of cus
toms, deputy collector, general official
clerk, three inspectors and a servant.
