Disgruntled Machine 'Bourbons' Form Pact with Walter Parker
'Push' Republicans to Take Advantage of Voters
Wellborn and Norton Tell of Plot
by Machine to Defeat Democrats
Within the last week four of Walter Parker's machine men
have approached me with a proposition that I pass the word
around among "the boys'' to write in the names of certain Repub
lican candidates against the Democrats indorsed at the Long
Beach conference. They had some kind of a "'trade" to make—
I don't know what it was. Of course I wouldn't listei/to them.—
Statement of Albert M. Norton, chairman Los Angeles county
Democratic central committee.
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.
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
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." ■
Police Commissioner Charles Well
born, who Investigated the conspiracy
yesterday, issued the following state-
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
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
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.
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
"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-"

Wheeler, Works. 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
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."

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
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.
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.
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.
Land having a valuation over that
amount will require a deposglt of $20
to hold It ,and payment of the re
mainder within ten days. The auction
v. ill be conducted by Messrs. Parker
and Arnold of the United States land
office at Phoenix.
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
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.
A mass meeting will be held tonight
at Simpson autitorium in the interest
of Hon. Philip A. Stanton for governor.
Mr. Stanton will, for the first time
since the great banquet was given him
at the commencement of the campaign,
address the citizens of Los Angeles in
a general meeting.
The eloquent Thomas Fitch, well
called the "Silver-Tongued Orator,"
will a)so deliver an address in ad
vocacy of Mr. Stanton.
Mr. Frank G. Tyrrell will speak on
the subject of "Ideal Executives."
As this will be practically the closing
meeting of the campaign the atten
dance will undoubtedly be large.
Mrs. M. G. Gonzales will sing "Star
Spangled Banner."
Ladles will be welcome.- Adv.
