JOHNSON HOPEFUL OF NOMINATION Lincoln-Roosevelt League Guber natorial Candidate's Cam paign Brings Him Here SAYS HE'S SURE OF SUCCESS Declares Voters Are Thoroughly Aroused Against Domination of Southern Pacific Bosses "A political revolution is being waged In California now, the greatest in the state's history," said Hiram W. John son, candidate of the Lincoln-Roose velt Republican league for the guber natorial nomination, at the Alexandria yesterday afternoon, "and when it ii over disaster and defeat will be the portions Of Herrin, Parker and others who have so long dictated the policies of the state "The primaries August ifi will he the Waterloo of the Southern Pacific politi cal machine and all adherents thereto, for they, like Napoleon of old, have made the fatal mistake of considering the masses only as so many pawns in a. great game Instead of human be ings, and the people, realizing that their chance has come at last, are going to oust such men and methods from the control of things." Such were the statements of Mr. Johnson, not the statements of Hiram Johnson, candidate for governor, but the unbiased opinion of Hiram John son, private citizen, arrived at after two months and a half of the most minute kind of investigation into the feelings and desires of the people of California. They are the opinions Mr. Johnson gained after having traveled from one end of California to the Other and after meeting voters of every city and town In the state. CONFIDKNt'oi- success "I am as confident of success for the Lincoln-Roosevelt Republican policies as I am that I am sitting here," con tinued Mr. Johnson. "On our recent trip we felt the pulse of the voting public, in this state In a way no other candidates ever have done, and from this I' say we will carry Southern Cali fornia, the Sacramento and San Joa quin valleys, AJamoda and Fresno counties and the counties of the north ern part of the state. "The great centers of population, San Francisco or Los Angeles for instance, are uncertain quantities, to a great extent. Such cities always are uncer tain, but we have the most encouraging reports from both the great cities of the state. "My running mate, A. J. Wallace, is becoming extremely popular In the north, making fast friends and sup porters wherever he goes, and with the popularity which is undoubtedly his in this part of the state his success seems assured. Almost the same may be said of Judge John D. Works, Lincoln-Roosevelt candidate for United States senator. He im presses everyone with his firm stead fastness of character in a most favor able way and his speeches have won him many supporters in sections of the state where he has been little known hitherto." .Mr. Johnson, accompanied by Mr. Wallace and Mr. Works, will begin his second trip over the state tomorrow. Traveling in automobiles, they will cover practically the same territory covered previously, but will take in towns which they were unable to visit before. Accompanying Mr. Johnson to Los Angeles was Chester H. Rowell of Fresno, president of the Lincoln-Roose velt league, who came here to complete final arrangements for this second campaign.

The affair resembled a large family gathering, and everybody was Imbued with the spirit of loyalty and good fellowship. From both a social and financial standpoint, the picnic was fully up to expectations. The affair was tor a worthy cause, the receipts to go to a fund for the sick, and no "tight wads" were seen on the grounds. The crowd began to arrive early in the morning and continued to come until late In the afternoon. They did li,, i .leave until the shadows «an to creep across the hills on each side of the park. The athletic program furnished the real sport of the day. .

The fat men's race furnished the most sport. li. G. Doyle, acknowledged fat man champion sprinter of Los An geles, was on the grounds but did not enter, giving as an excuse that he did not have liis racing pumps. He quali fied this statement by Baying lie was ,ii one race—the race for councilman— and wanted to hold his energy In re serve. A tidy sum was netted as a result of the picnic.

POLICE AT BREWERIES HAVE DULL TIME OF IT Fourth Day of the Strike Proves Uneventful Policemen in the shadow o£ Los An geles breweries hart little to do yes terday except to stand around on one foot, their right hand above their eyes, In an attitude of anxious expectancy. Neither to morth nor to south; east or to west, was trouble to be sighted. The brewery strikers did not seem to be keen at their job of striking and the brewers were not frantic in efforts to end strife. Little groups of men gathered on the streets yesterday und perhaps dis cussed the strike, perhaps the big Fourth of July glove fest The strik ers and their former employers, how ever, seemed inclined to enjoy a vaca tion from the strenuoalty that has marked the past few days. The breweries having hauled around enough wet stuff, either by special drivers of express wagons chartered for the occasion, to satisfy the oafes over Sundny, were not compelled to deliver and bottled goods in wheelbarrows yesterday. All was peace and quiet. Not a wheelbarrow rumbled. Not a striker struck. MILLIONAIRE COAL MAN'S WIFE INJURED BY FALL Mrs. W. H. Morris of Johnstown, Pa., Hurt Leaving Car .Mr.- W. 11.

ROCKS GRIND TO DEATH SWIMMER AND RESCUER Contestants in Match Race Lose Their Lives in Colorado River PHOENIX, May 22.—Last Sunday, near Quartz King, a Colorado river mining catnn above Parker, Jack Dunn, a miner, and Joseph Perez, a bartender, were drowned whilo en gaged in a iwtmmlng match. Both were strong swimmers ond had decided to i ach a point far down the river. Dunn went first, and soon was seen to disappear in I patch of rough water. Perm, appreciating the peril of his friend, plunged after him and dlsap -1 at the same spot before the eyes of a number of horrified watchers on the hank. It was later found that the rough water covered jagged rocks on which the swimmers were ground to death. Neither body has been found. Bodies rarely are found In the Colo rado. ROBS WOMAN GUEST IN FASHIONABLE HOTEL Crook with Pass Key Gets Some Trinkets and a Boa from an Apartment in Van Nuys Miss Louise May, who with Miss Alice May registered at the Van Nuys hotel Thursday from San Francisco, reported to the police department yes terday that she had been robbed of jewels ad wearing apparel valued at about $100. The theft Is supposed to have taken place some time Saturday afternoon, presumably between the hours of 1 and .">. the articles being taken from her room, No. 312 In the Van Nuys hotel. The articles which it is claimed were taken consist of a marabout fur boa, which Miss May claims is a very rare adjunct of feminine wearing apparel, and which she valued at about $80. There was also missing an amethyst brooch and an amethyst and pearl necklace. When asked nliout her reported loss yesterday Miss May refused to talk and seemed unwilling to give any informa ton whatever in regard to the matter. To all who called at the hotel she was steadfastly "not at home," although she remained in her room for the greater part of the day. The Van Nuys hotel management itself was very unwilling that any knowledge of the theft should become public, and Clerk A. E. Rateliffe, who was on duty, stoutly maintained that all those who knew anything about the robbery were out automobile riding. He neglected to inform the telephone operator at the hotel of the fact, how ever, and she gave away everything by connecting all who called up with Miss May's rooom, much to the clerk's dis gust when he discovered it. At detective headquarters it is be lieved the job was done by some clever professional. From the meager infor mation furnished by Miss May and the hotel management It seems that the door wns entered by means of a pass key. The thief, whoever he wns, cov ered his tracks In a baffling manner, leaving no clew to his Identity. NEWSBOY PUTS GRIEVANCE BEFORE CHIEF GALLOWAY Five New Vendors 'Jump Claim' of Three Originals at Fourth and Broadway "Please, mister policeman," asked a small boy yesterday of a patrolman Standing in front of the central police station, "kin I see do chief cop?" The big fellow looked down on a little freckled face framed in shaggy red hair that sadly needed a trimming. "Who do you wish to see, kid?" he asked smilingly. "Chief Galloway? He's the chief cop." "Dats him. Dats do guy. Pc main squeeze wat 1 read about," replied the little urchin eagerly. "And what is the nature of your business, young man?" asked the pa trolman, endeavoring to look serious. "Aw, I'm not tellin' me bizz to any private secretary. I want to Ret next to de main guy, see?" said the boy. Convinced that this young man really was serious in his desire to see the rhief, the policeman escorted him past the guards of the. chief's sanctum and into the chiefs office. Galloway looked up pleasantly and then frowned on what he thought a young transgressor of the law. I'KIOR CLAIM In a voice thrilled with the import ance of his mission the little fellow introduced himself as Tommy Kelley, who sold "polpers" in Broadway on "Fort." "Me and tree udder fellers has stuck on de job on de same corner fer tree years, We all got resier custermers. I represent de tree originals. Five udder guys gut wise to de coin we was plckln' and taught deyed get sum uf <\f easy money. Den all of er sudden dey .lumps de claim. Dey was bigger'n wr fellers ami besides we didn'd like ter take no liberties wid de peace. So we jus' walks over to de cop wat holds down de car tracks in de middle of de street and asks ter be freed from der hunch dat jumped our claim. He didn't seem to like our looks or ter seem to take us serious. He told us he had troubles of his own and to beat it. So, chief, de originals of us bunched to gedder and dey sent me to make me appeal, Kin we have dat corner?" chief Galloway smiled grimly. "We Will make an investigation, and if*\ve can substantiate your testimony as to you three boys having sold on that corner three years I will trp and find another place Just as good for the other fellows." Tommy grinned his delight. Here was recognition that would mean in vestigation. He bowed happily and put out his little hand, grimy with the dirt of the street. The big chief shook it cordially and Robbie left the I i with his escort. As they reached the street he turned to the policeman with a comical grimace on his face and said. "He's a BOoa chief, but don't he Use big words?" AUTO KILLS BROKER RT I'Ai'l, Minn., May S3.—B. B.

FACTORIES KILL 30,000 EACH YEAR Investigator Declares Industrial System of Country Is All Wrong EXPOSURE IS SOON COMING Congressman Speaking for Sec retary Nagel Says Life Conservation Is Issue ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., May 22.— Ten thousand persons filled the aud itorium of the "Million Dollar Pier" today to attend the mass meeting for labor, the greater popular meeting of the Presbyterian general assembly. ■ Charles K. Nugol, secretary of com merce and labor, did not appear to de liver his scheduled address on the con servation of national life. A slight ill ness was given as the reason for his non-appearance by Congressman Ben nett of New York, who declared that he was speaking; for the cabinet officer when he said that the national turmoil over the conservation of forests and national reservations is not nearly so important as the. conserving of human life throughout the country. Congressman Bennett hinted "that the coming report of the commission of immigration, which has been study ing conditions in American factories, is likely to create a sensation in the num ber of preventable deaths caused in factories." Rev. Charles S. Stelzle, superinten dent of the department of commerce and labor of the Presbyterian church, said that "when 30,000 Industrial work era are killed every year it means there is something wrong In our indus trial system. In some cases it Is noth ing short of murder. The railways of America alone kill nearly 12,000 persons every year, and injure 120,000, others. The present ! working day from a physiological standpoint is too long. It keeps the majority of men arid women in a constant state of over-fatigue, it leads to the craving of means for dead ening fatigue and Induces drunkenness and other excesses." Officials of the Atlantic City Central Labor union led a delegation of -I.W mechanic! and laborers who attended the meeting. PUBLIC SHIES AT THE NEW PAY-AS-YOU-ENTER CAR Easterner Thinks Conductor Has Been Social Center Too Long to Change Quickly "The public doesn't bohave very wel lon these pay-as-you-enter cars," complained a conductor yesterday aft ernoon on the Central avenue line, on which the new wagons are being tried previous to an extension of the sys tem to all lines of the I,os Angeles street railway. "They won't move up In front, and there is no room for them to loaf around on the back plat form." This has seemed to he the only trou ble on the new cars for the past week. Otherwise they are a success. In the near future passengers will.realize that the motormun is not a dangerous per son and show less hesitancy about moving into his vicinity. An easterner on one of the cars yes terday afternoon ventured an explana tion of the reticence of the public to move forward. He said: THE EXPLANATION "Everybody in Los Angeles Is good natured. Everybody on every car line has a conversational acquaintance with the conductors on his line. The law has prohibited talking to the motor man and he has become a social recluse. The social center of Los Angeles cars has been on the rear plat form. If the company could put a graphophone or some other attraction on the front of the car or make it a crime to hold converse with the con ductor, the evil would be abated if not banished." The pay-as-you-enter cars have been in service just one week. They are still regarded with great curiosity by passengers. It was observed yesterday afternoon that hardly a person got off the new cars without turning and stopping to give them a close inspec tion. NEW BCHKDUI.E A new schedule was tried on the Central avenue line yesterday. All aft ernoon the cars were run on four 'and a half minute time. The best schedule that has ever been used on the lino heretofore has been a five-minute schedule which could be maintained only for a short time in the afternoon. The pay-as-you-enter cars save a great deal of time, and it is the intention of the l.os Angeles street railway com pany to run them from now on on a five-minute schedule up to 9 o'clock each evening. The pay-as-you-enter cars, thirty seven of them, have been in service (inring the week. Forty more are now in course of construction. When they are completed they will be put on the Pico Heights and Hooper avenue lines.

PLENTY OF MONEY FOR AQUEDUCT IS EXPECTED Engineers Say Work Will Be Com pleted on Time Without Larger Force Following an order Issued by tho board of public works and which was made necessary by a temporary lark <>L' cash in the aqueduct funds, Btepi have boon takon to reduce tho monthly expenditure for work on tho great Owens river aqueduct from $550,000 to $400,000 monthly. To accomplish this result about 1000 men, all of them day laborers, were discharged from tho aqueduct service Saturday night. The situation is serious, but by no means as serious as appears on the surface, for engineers In charge of the work assert confidently that the aque duct will be completed on time, even at the rate of progress possible with the force as now reduced. On the other hand, It Is likely that the money shortage will lie obviated within a few days. In fact City Attor ney Leslie Hewitt said last night that he expected a telegram from New York today that will assure all the money needed and as fast as it may be de sired. The trouble arises through the terms of the contract under which the Owens river bonds were dispored of to east em buyers. Tinder that contract the bonds were sold for delivery at staled periods to A. B. Leach & Co. and to Kountze Bros., bond investors of New York city. The next date for delivery is in December. Meantime v/ork on the aqueduct has proceeded so much more rapidly than had been antici pated that a money shortage is threat ened, despite the fact that the work already done has been accomplished at a cost considerably below the engi neers' estimates. W B. Mathews, attorney for the aqueduct, and W. J. Washburn, chair man of the council finance committee, ;ire in New York in consultation with the bond linns concerned, and hope to perfect today an agreement whereby the issue will be taken over as speedily as the neeods of the work demand.
