A conspiracy to defeat the so-called unopposed candidates running for nomination on the Democratic ticket in the primaries has been effected between J. D. Fredericks and his followers and every possible effort in being made to carry it into effect."—Police Commissioner Chales Welborn. A .plot to take advantage of the large stay-at-home vote which the "Walter •Parker "push" believes will present an opportunity to steal several Democratic nominations was disclosed yestepday, when It was learned that the dis gruntled "Democrats" who have been weeded out of the party because of their affiliations with the Southern Pa cific combine have formed a pact with a number of "push" Republicans and have been holding regular meetings 1n Patsy Clark's "original" Jefferson club for the purpose of defeating certain candidates indorsed by the good gov- ernment Democracy. The existence of such a move had been rumored for several days, but it was not until yesterday that the real facts became known and steps were taken to offset the conspiracy. Briefly summarized, the plot is this: The machine men are doing every thing possible to create the sentiment among Democrats that as there are but two contests on in the Democratic primaries, and these contests are con fined to the Thirty-eighth senatorial and the Third supervisorial districts, there is no need for the Democrats to vote, because, they argue, no matter how many votes are cast "the Demo crats are bound to nominate their men." By encouraging this sentiment the ma chine believes the stay-at-home vote will be so large and the vote at the primaries so small that the machine can muster out enough disgruntled voters —registered as "Democratic" for the purpose—to write in on'the Demo cratic primary ballot the names of cer tain Republicans, thus defeating the good government candidates indorsed by the county conference and making up for any deficiency with which the Re publican candidate may meet In his own primaries. . If enough of these pseudo Democrats can be found and enough good govern ment Democratic voters stay at home it will readily be seen that the push will have no difficulty in stealing cer tain important nominations. For in stance, if the stay-at-home vote Is enough, District Attorney Fredericks might receive the Democratic nomina tion for re-election. FORM ORGANIZATION As an example of what the Repub licans and machine. Democrats hope to uccompllsh it was learned last night that many machine Democrats, dissat isfied with the good government prin ciples of the present-day Los Angeles Democracy, have formed an organiza tion to aid the Republican push in its attempt to overthrow the Democratic county central committee and Its chair man. They have also advocated a plot to aid several of the Republican can didates. Henry Lyon, machine Republican candidate against "Jake" Transue, also a "push" candidate, and R. S. Saun ders, a league candidate, is figuring on a sufficient number of machine Demo crats writing his (Lyons) name in on the Democratic ballot against Edwin C. Mayham to give, him the nomina tion in the event that Transue polls a larger vote than either he or Saunders. For Instance. If Saundera gets 500 Re- their summer home, are on their way I to Europe, having sailed Wednesday. I The South American executive when In New York was met at the steamer by Maj. Gen. William H. Carter, chief «f publican votes, Transue 400 Republican votes and Lyon 450 Republican and 100 Democratic votes, making for the latter a total of 550 votes, and May ham only gets 75 votes.. Lyon would virtually be the Democratic-Republi can nominee and could easily hope to defeat his opponent at the general elec tion by a similar combination. It would at least put him before the vot ers as a Republican-Democratic nom inee. f So serious Is the crisis threatened by this stay-at-home vote that every ef fort will be made to arouse the Demo crats as to the extreme importance of casting their ballots next Tuesday, and steps will at once' be taken to educate the voters concerning the peril in volved In their failure to do their duty. Aside from the- importance of the two contests, . In which the Southern Pacific men have. gone on the Demo cratic ticket against the good govern ment candidates, the primary election will, also_ be vitally important. in that It will "involve a desperate attempt on the part of the machine to get control of the next Democratic county -- and state convention and thus through these to get control also of the next Democratic county, central committee and undo the progressive work that has been done by the. new and' revital ized Democracy wrested from the old machine. It will involve also the brazen and determined efforts of the "push" to defeat certain of the Demo cratic candidates, and to nominate Re publicans, as just shown. 'It was learned (last night that the men back of this'organized effort to have the names of certain Republicans written in on the Democratic ticket are former. Mayor A. C. Harper, "Wal ter Parker, 11. M. ("Muggins") Mc- Donald, Frank Goings, Tom McCaffery, "Jim" Craig, Tom Savage and Martm Marsh. The history .of these men and their affiliations with the machine are so .notorious that it Is not necessary to review them nor to state their ob jects in the. present nefarious work of the old "push." ■ • . ISSUES WARNING NOTE Police Commissioner Charles Well born, who Investigated the conspiracy yesterday, issued the following state- ment: To the Democratic Voters of Los Angeles County: A conspiracy to defeat the so called unopposed candidates run ning for nomination on the Demo cratic ticket in the primaries has been effected between J. D. Fred ricks and his followers, and ««firy possible effort is being made to carry it into effect. They hope to steal the Democratic nomination over the stay-at-home vote by in ducing enough Democrats to write In the names of Republican candi dates on the Democratic ballot to defeat the Democratic candidates. In other words, if Fredricks and his cohorts, by working under cov er, can induce enough of the Demo crats of the old A. C. Harper-Wal ter F. Parker's regime to write in Fredricks' name in the blank space under Woolwlne's name on the Democratic ticket Fredrioka LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING. AUGUST 13, 1910. staff of the war department, and Capt. Harry R. Huse, commandant of the Brooklyn navy yard, In full uniform, both of whom accompanied him to Beverly. will get the Democratic nomination. Unless the Democrats throughout the county realize this danger, which is vital and impcmUng, this peril to the entire Democratic good government ticket may become a reality. Thousands of Democrats are taking the position that It Is unnecessary to go to the polls and vote at the primaries, for the rea son that many believe the Demo crats on the ticket have no oppo sition. As an advocate of good pnvernment, I wish to urge every Democrat who believes In good government to go to the polls and vote In the primaries without fail, as there Is and will be determined opposition along- the lines Indicated. CHARLES WELLBORN. "PCSSH" TALKS "TRADE" Albert M. Norton, chairman of the Los Angeles county Democratic cen tral committee, said: "In the last week four of "Walter Parker's machine men have approached me with a proposition that I pass the word around among 'the boyß' to write in the names of certain Republican candidates against the Democrats In dorsed at the Lonpr Beach conference. They had some kind of a 'trade' to make. I don't know what It was. Of course I wouldn't listen to them. ONE OF THE MEN OFFERED ME FIF TEEN DEPUTYSHIPS IF I COULD INDUCE THE DEMOCRATS TO LAY DOWN ON A DEMOCRATIC CANDI DATE AND WRITE THE NAME OF THE REPUBLICAN IN; "ANOTHER PROMINENT MA CHINE MAN SAID HE WOULD SHOW ME A 'GOOD THING' IF I WOULD HELP KNIFE ONE OF OUR CANDIDATES SO THAT A REPUB LICAN COULD GET THE DEMO CRATIC NOMINATION. "I have positive Information that a well organized movement is on foot .'or the machine Democrats, who want to be revenged on the present organi zation, which kicked them out of the party, to write In the names of cer tain Republican candidates, If it Is seen, by 1 or 2 p. m. election day that most of the. Democratic voters are staying at home because they do not consider the primaries 'Important.' "I regard the situation as serious, but, of course, if the good government Democrats ar« aroused to the danger, and •will do their duty, this danger will be entirely obviated, and the ticket indorsed by the Democratic county conference nt Long Beach will easily lie nominated, for the mnchlne could not muster out enough votes to make any material difference If the other side turns out as It should do." Mr. Woolwlne, when asked yesterday ns to the reports that friends of J. D. Fredericks are planning to have his name written in on the Democratic ticket by the machine Democrats, said: "Yes, I hnvo heard that BUOh a con spiracy existed, and may have some thing to say later concerning the men who are mixed up in it. All I have to say now is that I have every con fidence In the loyalty of my friends, and in the Intelligence and patriotism of the Democracy of Los Angeles city and county, and I am not afraid but that every good government Democrat will do his duty at the primary elec tion. However, I think It is a good plan to let the voters know, just what kind of a deal these fellows are try- Ing to frame "P-" MANY MEETINGS OF LEAGUE FOR TONIGHT Meetings of the Lincoln-Roosevelt Republican league will take place to night at the following places: At 642% North Main street—L.

Weinstock and Stephens Deliver Addresses The Republicans of Long Beach de clared strongly for Insurgency last evening at a big mass meeting held in the public park. The principal speak ers were Charles S. Wheeler of San Francisco, one of the most noted law yers of the Pacific coast, and Col. Har ris Weinstock, a lifelong friend of Hiram Johnson. Probably 500 people ivere seated or stood in front of the band stand on which the speakers were seated. The greatest interest in the messages brought from the north by these two advocates of decent government for California was exhibited. Herbert M. Haskell presided. The opening address was made by Lee C. Gates, who was followed by Judge John D. Works and William D. Ste phens in turn. Eypeeial interest was manifested in the remarlta of Colonel Welnstock, who paid a glowing trib ute to Hiram Johnson. "Neither the Southern Pacific nor any other corporation has anything to fear from Hiram Johnson as governor as long as they seek their legal rights," said the speaker. "Hiram Johnson as governor will be as ready to kill a •cinch' bill aimed at the Southern Pa cific company as he would be were it aimed at his dearest friend. But should tho Southern Pacific or any other corporation attempt to evade or defeat the law or to secure some un just privilege at the expense of the people, then they may well fear his big stick." DENIES BRITISHERS HAD RAILWAY MERGER PLAN NEW YORK, Aug. 12.—Percival Far quhar, who has been prominently con nected with the so-called Pearson syn dicate, whom stock holdings in sev eral railroads were taken over by a New York hanking institution recently t» prevent a further collapse on the stock exchange, denied today that any syndicate had existed. Mr. Farquhar, who was an arrival from England on the Lusitanla, said: "The members of the so-called syn dicate were simply individuals who had stocks In their own hands and in various railroad properties. It may be a coincidence that these properties formed a more or less direct line of connection between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, but that there was any concerted action to obtain control of a transcontinental chain of railroads by a body of Englishmen is absurd." WILL BUILD DITCHES TO PROTECT INDIANS' CROPS WASHINGTON, Auff. 12.—1n order that the Indians on the Fort Peck res ervation In Montana may be protected from dry soasons In the future the Interior department has decided to con struct dltchCK for the Irrigation of about 9000 acres of land on the reser vation. The work will be done under the direction of Supervising Engineer H. N. Savage of tho reclamation ser vice. It Is said the Indians' principal crops have been a failure this year because of an exeeedfhgly dry season and the government dosires to install the sys tem at the earliest possible moment. The Indians will be given an oppor tunity to work on the project during the coming fall 'and winter. MOSQUITO CONTROL IS SUBJECT OF REPORT State Board of Health Discusses Result of Experiments to Prevent Malaria SACRAMENTO, Augr. 11.—In the July state health bulletin Prof. William B. Herms, University of California, ex plains mosquito control from the stage where the female Insect deposits eggs on the water to the ways and means of organizing and conducting campaigns for the destruction of maturing larvae. In discussing the breeding of mos quitoes Prof. Herms states that a single female will.deposit on the surface of the water all the way from twenty-five to 750 eggs. These eggs hatch In from twelve to forty-etght hours. Water, If only a thimbleful, is essential to the development of the mosquito larvae. .Water-filled cow tracks In sloughs and along streams, slack water In sluggish, uncleaned irrigation ditches, and water in back yard puddles or old tin cans are mentioned as favorable places for breeding. The wrigglers which develop from, mosquito eggs live and feed in the water, but are air-breathing and can be drowned if prevented from coming to the surface. It Is found that the best and cheapest method of drowning the prospective mosquito crop Is to spray water surfaces with kerosene and crude oil mixed in equal parts. An ef fective but more expensive mode Is to poison the water with a tobacco decoc tion. The draining of puddles, where possible. Is advocated as a means of mosquito control. This measure does not have to be repeated, and hence is the cheapest in the long run. Apropos of the malaria situation, Prof. Herms states that the disease is not a necessary adjunct of sunshine and fertility; that the elimination of malaria is merely a matter of prevent ing the anopheline mosquito from breeding. To those who live where the pests are uncontrolled he says: "Keep the mosquito from biting you by the proper use of screens, and you need not have malaria." Under the heading "How to Inaugu rate a Campaign," Prof. Herms tells how public interest may be aroused by lectures and exhibits, how money may be raised and committees formed. He states further that mosquito control in California is long past the experimental stage, and that colonization in the state wodld be greatly furthered by legisla tion which will provide an aid fund to meet half the expense of mosquito control inaugurated by districts to eradicate malaria. ARRAIGNED ON CHARGE OF TRYING TO WRECK TRAIN FRESNO, Aug. 12.—8. Vismara, ac cused of having attempted to wreck a train near Firebaugh last Tuesday night by laying a heavy tie across the tracks, was formally charged with the offense today In the Jutsice court by District Attorney Church. The filing of the complaint followed an examination of Vismara by the prosecution, during which the pris oner was compelled to acknowledge that previous to the time that the tie had been discovered and removed he had seen it on the track, but that he had not taken It away because he did not consider that it was any of his business to do so. CAMP BOWIE RESERVATION TO BE SOLD AT AUCTION 23.000 Acres Valued at from $1.25 to $2.50 an Acre The, old Camp Bowie military reser vation near Phoenix, Ariz., will be sold at public auction October 10, accord ing to advices received from Washing ton by the land officials of Arizona. The tract comprises 23,000 acres of agrlcultur-!, mineral and grazing land, which is valued at from $1.25 to $2.50 an ecre. The land registered as grazing and agricultural land will be sold outright to the highest bidder, while the min eral land will be disposed of accord ing to the provisions of the mineral land laws. The reservation will be sold In tracts of not less than forty acres. Where the land's appraised value does not ex ceed $1.75 per acre a deposit of $10 will be required at the time of purchase, the remainder to be paid within ten days from October 10.

CHARGE NUMBERS ON IRON ARE CHANGED Representatives of the Baker Iron works last night requested the police to assist in apprehending persons who are causing: considerable trouble by changing the markings on structural iron to be used on the Alexandria an nex building at Fifth and Spring streets. According to the complaint, certain persons are making a practice of en tering 1..c yards of the company at Macy and Alameda streets and paint ing out the original figures, by which the pieces of steel are fitted, and marking other figures. Obscene words and skulls and crossbones also are painted on the iron, and the word "scab," printed In large letters adorn each piece of steell. The men are thought to enter the yards while the night watchman Is at another part of the plant and make their escape before he returns to the steel yard.
