LETTERS EXPOSE
FREDERICKS' PLOT
AGAINST WOOLWINE
Scheme Hatched to Write in the
Name of District Attorney
on Democratic Ballots
MACHINE FORCES DESPERATE
Deputies Send Notes to Former
Jurors Appealing for Aid
in Political Trick
The Republican machine is
desperate.
Facing defeat, District Attor
ney Fredericks and his associates
have hatched a plot they hope
will prevent the nomination of
Thomas Lee Woolwine, Demo
cratic candidate for district at
torney.
John C. North, a deputy to
Fredericks, and other attaches of
the district attorney's office have
sent out letters urging Demo
crats to write in the name of
Fredericks on the Democratic
ticket.
This move is an eleventh-hour
plot of machine* Republicans.
They vainly hope it will stem the
tide which is setting against
them.
Vote for Thomas Lee Wool
wine.
Meanwhile, if you question that
Fredericks and his associates
have resorted to the bold plot
charged, read this letter.
The letters were not sent out
until, the close of the campaign,
in order that they might do their
work before a timely warhing
could be issued to those receiving
them. A great many of the let
ters were mailed Sunday and
Monday.
I.ETTEIt KXrOSF.S TRICK
L.OS ANGELES, Cal.. Aug. 13,
1810. —Dear Sir; You will no doubt
remember the writer an having
been pretty well acquainted with
you when you were a member of
the Jury In Judpe Willis' court from
February 4 to June 10. 1909. I havo
before mo a list of the jury, which
was printed by Mr. W. S. McGee
of Ingjowood, and I remember with
a great deal of pleasure the times
we used to have in department 11
together.
Next Tuesday will be the prl
marv election, at which time Capt.
J. D. Fredericks wants to be re
nominatea on both the Republican
and. Democratic tickets for district
attorney. If you arc a Republican
you would do me a great favor by
making a cross opposite the cap
tain's name on the ballot at that
time. If you are a Democrat It Is
just as important that you vote for
him by writing his name in the
place left for Democratic nomina
tion for district attorney.
Having been more or less closely
associated with the district attor
ney's office in times past, I feel
sure that you fully appreciate the
fact that this office has been capa
bly, efficiently and conscientious
ly conducted by Captain Freder
icks personally, with the assist
ance of his deputies.
We need the help of all of our
friends in this primary election,
especially in view of the fact that
certain persons made it their boast
that they will "got" the captain,
and are proceeding 1 to do it by mud
slinging and innuendo. No one
knows better than I do that thesa
contemptible tactics of the oppo
sition are most undeserved, to the
captain and I ask you if you will
not do your part toward seeing
that he is renomlnated and re
elected. Very .truly yours,
JOHN C. NORTH.
Another letter sent out at the re
quest of District Attorney Fredericks
Is signed by the "Polo Club," which he
claims Is made up principally of Span
ish War Veteran „ but which in real
ity is composer chiefly of machine
men. The club was organized to "do
politics" for Fredericks. In its letter
this statement appears:
The primaries are on August 16,
1910, and Captain Fredericks' name
will >c found on the Republican
'balloc along with the names of two
opponents. If you should have
registered as a Democrat, you will
of course be given a Democratic
ballot at these primaries, upon
which his name will not appear;
but you can write his name on that
ballot underneath, the title "Dis
trict Attorney."^

CHARGE OF 10,000 VOLTS
HITS MILLIONAIRE'S SON
Elliott McMillan Recovers After
Terrific Electrical Shock
PLATTEVILLE, Wis., Aug. 15.—El
liott McMillan, son of a California mil
lionaire, received a 10,000 volt charge
of electricity at the ore separating
plant here in the morning and played
a game of billiards In the afternoon.
McMillan brought his hand near one
of the high voltage separators yester
day and the current broke from the
machine, passing through his body and
out through his feet.
The power was hurriedly turned off,
and the young man fell to the floor
unconscious. He recovered in a few
minutes, however, and it was found
he was uninjured except for slight
burna on a band »ad luwi.
TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST IC, 1910.
POLICE SEARCH
FOR C.B. MINER,
ACCUSED BROKER
Former Officer in Local Bank Is
Charged with Passing
Worthless Checks
AMOUNT MAY REACH $40,000
Well Known Clubman Disappears,
and Warrant for Arrest Is
Awaiting Service
C. B. Miner, clubman and broker,
widely known In Los Angeles financial
circles, and at one time chief teller in
the Farmers and Merchants' National
bank, is missing. A warrant for his
arrest, charging him with having
passed a worthless check for $4100, is
awaiting service. J. H. Blagge, also
a broker, is the complainant. Many
other bad checks were issued by Miner
before he left, the police assert, and
the sum thus lost by his friends and
banks with which he did business may
total $40,000.
Miner was an active member of the
Los Angeles stock exchange, but it is
stated the exchange lost nothing. He
disappeared Saturday, after bidding
his wife and daughter, aged 5 years,
goodby. He said he was going to
Bakersfleld and would return the fol
lowing day.
The first Irregularity in Miner's bus
iness methods was discovered yester
day morning at the National Bank of
California, Fourth and Spring streets,
when a check that had been deposited
by Miner, signed by Luther H. Green,
calling for $5000, was returned marked
"Irregular signature." Miner has of
fices In tho Pacific Electric building.
Immediately an investigation was
made by tho bank officials of Miner's
account. It showed that he owed the
bank close to $10,000.
mKEGULARITY IN SIGNATURE
W. D. Woolwine, vice president, in
speaking of Miner's indebtedness to
his bank yesterday, said:
"As near as we can tell at present
Miner owes this institution less than
$10,000. Aa his dealings with us had
always beon regular, we had no inti
mation that anything wjis wrong un
til the check for $5000, signed by Lu
ther H. Green, was returned this morn
ing with the memorandum attached
marked 'signature irregular.' I will
not say that the signature was forged,
but will say that It waa Irregular."
J. H. Blagge, a broker in the Secur
ity building, room 322, swore to a com
plaint In Police Judge Williams' court
yesterday charging Miner with pass-
Ing a worthless check for $4100.
At the First National bank, it is
alleged. Miner succeeded in petting a
large sum on a worthless check. When
President J. M. Elliott was asked last
evening as to the amount he said:
"I don't know the amount, but I un
derstand that there is an Irregular
check at the bank."
COMPANIES LOSE ON CHECKS
Adams & Co., brokers, is another
concern that Is said to have suffered.
The Clune Investment company. It is
understood, has a shortage to settle
with the missing man.
Last evening Charles Rogers the
younger brother of Mrs. Miner, said
that Miner on departing from his wife
had promised to return soon. Mr. Rog
ers said:
"He told sister that he was going to
Bakersfiold and expected to be back
Sunday, and if not then he would
surely be back Monday morning or
would phone her.
"Miner made money, but lived ex
travagantly, being a very generous
spender. He got to bucking the New
York exchange recently, and I guess
that must have got him to a certain
extent. As he had not been to see
our family for more than six months,
we did not know much about his cir-
cumstances, but we did know that he
was living high."
Miner was well known in local bank
ing circles. For several years he was
chief teller at the Farmers and Mer
chants National bank. On resigning
from that position he entered the
brokerage field, and at first was suc
cessful, making $16,000 In the advance
on Associated oil stock about a year
ago.
In club circles he was also well
known, being a meember of the Jon
athan and at one time of the Union
league.
Warning to Democrats
BECAUSE most of the names upon the Democratic ticket are
not contested, Democrats must not permit themselves to be
lulled into any feeling of security and refrain from going
to the polls. ,
It has been the practice of the disreputable Southern Pacific
machine in the past to load the Democratic ticket up with its own
creatures. Witness the manner in which "Tvs" Eldrid/jje was
placed upon the Democratic ticket at the last election. /
There is no doubt that the machine will have every I emocrat
that it can control at the polls with instructions to write in the
names of candidates of its own choosing.
Should honest Democrats refrain from going to the polls today
and casting their votes for the excellent ticket which has been pro
vided for them they may be very sure that they will wake Hp to
find their ticket composed of nominees whose presence upon it
they will consider a disgrace.
Let every Democrat do his duty to his party and to his country
by going to the polls and casting his vote for the best ticket, from
top to bottom, that the members of the party in this county have
ever had an opportunity of voting for in its. history.
Democrats should also remember that the delegates selected
to the Democratic county convention at today's primaries! will
constitute the party machinery for the next two years. They will
elect delegates to the state convention, which, in turn, will select
delegates to the Democratic national convention. It is important,
therefore, that Democrats vote for good men—those whose names
appear on official stickers which will be given out by the Demo
cratic precinct chairmen.
WOMAN'S SLAYER
ARRESTED; COOLLY
CONFESSES CRIME
Otto Schultz, Caught Here, Says
He Killed Mrs. Schultz-Cas
tine Because of Blow
DETAILS LANCASTER MURDER
Found Working in Bakery Under
Own Name—Denies Rob
bery Was Motive
Otto Schultz, murderer of Mrs. Freda
Schultz-Castine, who was beaten on
the head with a shovel and buried
while still warm in a shallow grave
twenty feet from her ranch home near
Lancaster last Friday afternoon, was
arrested by Detective Grant Roberds
In the mixing room of the Pieper Bak
ing company at 747 Central avenue
shortly alter « o'clock last night.
Schultz at first denied ever having lived
at Lancaster and that he killed any
one. He finally admitted that he killed
the woman and later, when given into
the custody of Sheriff Hammel, made a
full confession of his crime. Schultz
says he is a full brother of Emil
Schultz, known as the son of the de
ceased. He asserts Mrs. Castine
adopted his brother.
The accused denied that he killed the
woman for money. He said he engaged
in an altercation with the woman be
cause he stepped on a chicken and in
jured It. Following'- this altercation,
Schultz stated that Mrs. Schultz-Oas
tine seized a stick and struck him.
He seized a shovel, grasping the im
plement by the blade, and struck her
on tho head, felling her to the ground.
Then, the accused stated, he beat her
on the head until he thought she was
dead.
The murderer arrived in Los Angeles
at 8 o'clock Saturday morning. He
left his baggage at the Arcade sta
tion and searched about for a place to
eat. After walking about in the neigh
borhood he went to the Pieper Baking
company and asked the proprietor, Ru
dolph F. Pieper, for something to eat.
GETS PLACE IN BAKERY
Schultz told a pitiful story of having
landed in New York on March 3 and
of being compelled to tramp his way
across the continent in search of em
ployment. Pieper took pity on the
man and after feeding him offered him
a temporary position in the bakery.
Schultz then returned with his be
longings and showed Pieper a number
of letters from Germany to the effect
that the bearer was a baker's appren
tice and had been employed In various
cities in tho German empire. The ac
cused gave 'his correct name, Otto
Schultz, and went to work Saturday
morninsr.
Monday being a busy day for Pieper
he could not find time to read the
papers until yesterday afternoon.
When fie~read the accounts of the mur
der he at once suspicionod the new
employe, and at 6:45 o'clock telephoned
to the central police station and noti
fied the detective bureau.
Detective Grant Roberds, one of the
cleverest officers in tho department,
was detailed to investigate the case.
Roberds hurried to the bakery, and
with the proprietor went ito the mix
ing room and found Schultz nervously
scraping flour from barrels. Roberds,
using Pieper as an interpreter, asked
Schultz when he left Lancaster. Schultz
feigned ignorance, and asked where
the place was. Roberds then asked the
young man if the woman was badly
hurt. Again Schultz feigned ignorance
and denied any knowledge of a woman
having been Injured.
The detective then asked Schultz if
the latter was not responsible for the
death of Mrs. Freda Schultz-Castine.
The accused turned pale, groped wildly
for a nearby barrel, finally steadied
himself and replied in a hoarse whisper
that he killed the woman. Roberds
then placed him under arrest and took
him to the central police station.
TELLS OF MOVEMENTS
An interpreter elicited the informa
tion that Schultz killed the woman be
cause she called him a lazy loafer.
The accused then detailed his move
ments from the time of the commission
of the crime to the moment of his
arrest.
As soon as Schultz was placed under
arrest the detective notified Sheriff
Hammel and within a short time the
latter appeared and the prisoner was

TARIFF BLAMED
FOR HIGH PRICES
The Trusts and Monopolies Also
Caused Advances, Declare
Democratic Senators
(Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15.—The tariff,
trusts, combines and monopolies and
an increased money supply are three
substantial causes for the advance in
prices in the United States, according
to Senators Johnson of Alabama, Clark
of Arkansas, and Smith of South Caro
lina, minority members of the select
senate committee appointed during the
last session of congress to investigate
and make a report on wages and the
prices of commodities. The report was
made public today.
Vigorous attacks are made in the
minority report on almost all the rea
sons given by the majority in its re
port, submitted some time ago, as the
cause for the advance in prices.
After attacking one at a time, the
fifteen principal causes which, accord
ing to the majority report, contribute
to the high cost of living, the minor
ity report takes up the tariff, declar
ing that when the Payne-Aklrich bill
was framed, champagne was put on
the schedule at from 54 to 66 per cent,
while wearing apparel was taxed from
80 to 92 per cent —drinking champagne
was to be encouraged and wearing
woolen clothes discouraged.
"So with hats," they said. "Those
bringing not over $4.50 per dozen were
taxed 77 per cent, and those valued at
more than $18 per dozen, 47 per cent."
The result of protection, they declare,
is "great fortunes for the few and
great suffering for the many."
Showing the effect of the tariff on
prices, they instance sugar, on which
the American consumer, they say,
pays more than the London con
sumer because of the difference in the
sugar tariffs in the two countries, plus
17 cents a hundred pounds.
"It Is scarcely necessary," they said,
"to mention the iniquitous woolen
schedules—here the tariff rates are so
high on these necessities of our people
as practically to preclude any foreign
competition with the American manu
facturer, except on high-priced goods
purchased by the wealthier consumer
who can to some extent disregard
prices."
Taking up the trusts and monop
olies, they declare "that there are few
trusts that could survive a revenue
tariff. They flourish only under the
shadow of high protective walls."
"The methods of the meat trust,"
they declare, "seem to be admirably
adapted to take from the consumer
and the producer the largest amount
that the tariff will bear. Their destruc
tion of local competition cannot be
Improved upon."

HONEST MEN OR
S.P.TOOLS-WHICH?
Today's Primary Gives Voters a
Choice of Kind of Candi
dates They Want
BY T. SUEIXISY BUTTON
A last word to the good government
voters of California:
The primary election today, which
will be the first yet • held under the
new direct primary law, will absolutely
decide, perhaps for -all time, whether
the peoplethe j taxpayers— year
by year have been heavily assessed for
the maintenance of law and order,
justice and decency, are to gain con
trol of. the affairs of our county and
state governments; or whether the
Southern Pacific political machine, its
pernicious "bosses" and . unscrupulous
representatives are to continue their
management of our state's legislative,
executive and judicial departments.
The ; question is vital. It involves
the future welfare, the success and
prosperity, as well as the good name
and honor of California. Every law
abiding, docency-loving and patriotic
citizen who has the welfare of the
county and state at heart, should go
to the polls today and cast his ballot
for the candidates who were induced
to make the fight for cleaner govern
ment —the candidates who stand for all
that is opposed to the corrupt and dis
honorable machine. These candidates
will bo found on the Republican ticket
Indorsed by the Lincoln-Roosevelt Re
publican league, and on the Demo
cratic ticket Indorsed at the Long
Beach Democratic conference.
' SHALL ' FEOrLE KILE?
This election is to decide whether
the people shall , rule. A vote cast at
the polls today la a vote for better
government, for more honest and ef
ficient administrative officials, cleaner
politics and more progressive policies;
or It is a vote for the Southern Pacific
and its allied "vested interests;" a
vote to rid the county and state of tho
corporation octopus which has been for
so many, years sipping away the life
blood of scores Cv our most important
commercial and industrial Interests; or
a vote to fasten its tentacles more
tenaciously upon us.
There are only two ways to —for
or against. The "scratching" of any
ticket will be a grave mistake. Tho
primary election, it must be remem
bered, is an innovation—a progressive
reform achieved after years of popular
agitation. The present law -is not ex
actly satisfactory— it is the con
cession of its enemies law adopted
by a legislature largely opposed to It.
That legislature was compelled by
popular Bentiment to grant It. The

DEMOCRATS SOLID FOR BELL
Republican Senatorial Aspirants
Give Out No Figures, and
Fight Is Quiet
(Associated Press)
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. Assem.
bled In a myriad of polling places to
morrow, the voters of California will
hold their "conventions" for the nomin
ation of state, congressional, legisla
tive and county candidates. No general
election has attracted more interest
than this first test of the efficiency of.
the direct primary under the new Cali
fornia law, and in no previous ballot
ing has it been more difficult to fore
cast results. Pre-prlmary claims of
victory are as numerous as the candi
dates themselves, and the figures given
out at the several headquarters show
remarkable differences of opinion—real
or pretended.
If results be close in the contests for
the principal nominations It may re
quire a day or two to determine the
winners; in the case of minor offices,
definite announcements canot be ex
pected within that time, owing to the
great length of the ballot, and the fact
that there are no "straight" tickets to
be voted. If the returns show a "land
slide" in any direction a definite Idea
as to the main results may be had
early tomorrow evening.
no OPPOSITION to BE IX
With Theodore A. Bell assured of the
Democratic nomination for governor
without opposition and few other places
on the Democratic state . ticket con
tested, the interest of the voters of that
party is confined to local contests. The
one which is attracting most attention
is the struggle between R. P. Troy and
Walter Mac Arthur, the labor leader,
for the Democratic nomination for con
gress in the F6urth district, where
Julius Kahn will be chosen by the Re
publicans to succeed himself. Man
agers ■of the five candidates for
the Republican gubernatorial nomina
tion made their final claims tonight and
accompanied them with analytical de- .
tails. Each professed confidence that
bis^cbletr would be returned: a winner
on the morrow..
In the camp of Hiram W. Johnson,
the insurgent aspirant, it was asserted
that Johnson would come up to the
Tehachapl with a plurality of not less
than 15,000; that he would more than
maintain this lead in central an,d north
ern California, overcoming , through
overwhelming support in the farming
districts the pluralities that his op
ponents might receive In the more pop
ulous centers. Johnson is confident of
defeating Philip A. Stanton in Los An
geles, the latter's home city, and of
breaking nearly even in San Francisco,
the Curry stronghold. The - Lincoln-
Roosevelt press . and orators. through
out the state have been urging their
partisans to vote the straight insur
gent ticket, and the Johnson managers
profess confidence that the entile tick
et will go through.
CUBBY IS CONFIDENT
Charles F. Curry's lieutenants based
their claims upon the splendid organ
ization which Curry had built up
throughout the state and declared that
the vote tomorrow would be filled with,
surprises In the districts where the op- -
position had been considered strongest.
It was asserted that Curry would have
a clear majority in San Francisco;
that he .would run uniformly ahead or
Johnson throughout the other central
and northern counties, and that his ex
cellent organization in the southern,
counties, coupled with the strong sup
port controlled by Richard Ferris, his
running mate, would bring him up to
the Tehachapi close upon the heels of
the Lincoln-Roosevelt nominee. As an
evidence iof the strength of the Curry
organization, the fact was cited that
a call for a meeting of its precinct
workers in San Francisco last Friday
night brought an attendance of 1600
m philip A. Stanton bases his hopes of
success entirely upon the support that
he expected to receive in Southern
California, which district supplies but
one candidate for the governorship
against four from the north. Stanton
expects to receive 65 per cent of the
Republican vote in Los Angeles, his
home county, and to have a big lead
in every other county of the southern
group. He figures that the Southern
California vote alone will give him the
nomination, while the scattering sup
port that he will receive above the
Tohachapi will but serve the purpose
of increasing his plurality. Stanton's
closing campaign in central and north
ern California has been made by F. V.
Keesling, whom the Angeleno induced
to enter the race for lieutenant gov
ernor as his running mate.
ANDEBSON HAS HOPES
At Alden Anderson's headquarters it
was claimed that the candidate of the
