Reform Legislative Candidates
Win in All But Two Dis
tricts in County
Fredericks- Hammel and One or
Two Others Only 'Push'
Men to Score
(Can tinned from Pin Onai
Court Judge Hervey, Tax Collector
Welch and one or two assomblymen.
The defeat of Lyman Farwell, league
candidate for the assembly In the Sev
enty-first district, seems probable.
The closing hours of the Llncoln-
Rooaevelt campaign were the most
strenuous ever experienced by any po
litical organization in the history of
the county. Extraordinary efforts
were made to get out a heavy vote,
and scores of automobiles, donated by
enthusiastic admirers of the league,
were pressed Into service throughout
the day In the hope of offsetting the
many votes which were hustled out
by the "push."
The Southern Pacific gang was pres
ent In full force and weeks before the
election had hired hundreds of autos
and other vehicles which were util
ized to take voters to and from the
polls, the "push" hoping thereby that
the men It thus favored would be in
duced to vote for the machine candi
At Llnooln-Roosevelt league head
quarters all was activity. Nothing
was left undone to Insure the success
of the strenuous battle waged by the
league and ita candidates and friends
to defeat the work of the "push."
Forty-four telephones were kept busy
all day; about eighty girls and men
employed as office assistants made the
headquarters appear a huge beehive,
without a drone In any of the ten
departments utilized by the campaign
The entire upper floor of the Rindge
building, in fact, where the league has
maintained its headquarters, presented
a remarkable scene of activity, sys
tematic hustle and political enterprise.
Secretary Kemper B. Campbell and
Chairman Marshall Stlmson of the
league were about the busiest men in
the county and worked from early
morning yesterday until late last night
directing the details of the compli
cated work. Thousands of telephone
complaints were received, especially
from voters In the Seventh and Eighth
wards, who stated that a number of
Walter Parker's henchmen were elec
tioneering almost Inside the voting
The league representatives Investi
gated these charges and In many In
stances took campaign literature out
of the booths, compelled men to leave
the polling places and by persistently
standing guard undoubtedly prevented
considerable fraudulent voting.
Eddie Morris, the notorious "push"
politician, stood within twenty feet of
the booths nearly all day yesterday,
at the city hall polling place, and fre
quently engaged In low conversation
with first one and then another pros
pective voter or machine politician.
The Lincoln-Roosevelt league had a
strenuous time answering the various
complaints, Investigating charges of
fraudulent voting, Instructing hun
dreds of voters how to mark their bal
lot, superintending the work of the
precinct commltteemen, hustling out
voters, directing voters to their re
spective polling places and attending
to the many other matters connected
with the election.
The machine undoubtedly waged the
•nPjit strenuous and the most deter
mined battle In Its existence, but so
far as the general ticket was con
cerned it was utterly unable to cope
with the effective work of the league
or combat the tremendous sentiment
of the public. While the vote was
light In many precincts, this apathy
was more than offset by the enthu
siasm and the strenuous activities of
the league's precinct workers. Ex
amples of the great work accomplished
by the league are seen In the results
obtained in certain "push" strongholds.
For instance, It became apparent quite
early In the count that Johnson had
carried Barney Healy's own precinct
and that Johnson's vote In the old
Seventh and Eighth wards, which- had
been regarded as "push" certainties,
Is regarded as almost phenomenal.
One of the hardest battles of the
campaign was that waged by the
league, as well as by the good govern
ment Democrats, against "Tvs" Eld
ridge In the third supervisorial district.
Eldrldge and hi.s lieutenants worked
like beavers all during the day, but
Butler, his league opponent, was not
caught napping and his friends came
valiantly to the rescue. The good gov
ernment Democrats also made a con
certed effort to offset the activities of
Enoch Hidden. The returns show that
many of the men who dragged him into
the race threw him. down at the last
moment and wrote in the name of
Eldridge on the Democratic ticket. But
with all of this Eldrldge did not make
the showing he anticipated, and it was
apparent that even a large number of
"machine" voters refused to stand for
Eldrldge, for the returns show con
clusively that many '•push" voters
knifed Eldrldge and voted for Butler,
although they stood pat on the other
push candidates.
In tho Thirty-eighth senatorial dis
trict the battle was particularly excit
ing; the'first returns looked favorable
for McCartney and Sanders, but later
returns showed that Hewitt was con
siderably in the lead, with McCartney
seetr.ing to run a close second. The
Democrats concentrated their efforts
to defeat the notorious "Muggins" Mc-
Donald, the discredited Democrat who
managed to buy up enough signatures
to get his name on the Democratic bal
lot, in opposition to Martin Beklns,
the Democratic candidate indorsed at
the Long Beach conference.
"Muggins" made an energetic fight,
and resorted to many Tammany tactics
throughout the day to secure the nom
ination by trickery and misrepresenta
tion, claiming that he had been "wrong
ly treated" and maligned by the good
government Democrats, the county
central committee, the executive com
mittee, Chairman Norton and all the
other Democrats and Democratic or
ganizations, and was seen throughout
the day carrying on whispered conver
sations with his friends and with
Democratic voters whom he sought to
induce to vote for him.
The fact that Fredericks ran ahead
of his li'itgue opponent is attributed to
tho exceptional strength and system
atic organization of the notorious po
litical machine maintained by and In
connection with tho district attorneys
Hiram W. Johnson, the Republican
Nominee for Governor of California
Jar - ■ ■/-,... 3KJ^
office. Every professional Juryman,
every man who has served or who
hopes to serve on Los Angeles county
juries, every deputy, clerk, bailiff and
attache of the district attorney's office
and of the various courts of the coun
ty, with but few exceptions, was work
ing diligently to Insure Fredericks' re
nomlnatlon, and nothing was left un
done to defeat the Lincoln-Roosevelt
candidate, Frank S. Hutton.
The entire Southern Pacific machine
concentrated Its efforts and expended
the greater part of Its energies to nom
inate the Incumbent, on whom hun
dreds of the "push" allies directly or
Indirectly depend for their livelihood.
The work of this machine was so per
sistent and so minutely planned and
executed that the reform forces were
powerless to offset It; for the "bread
and-butter" appeal Induced many Re
publicans to support Fredericks who
would not vote for other of the ma
chine candidates.
The success of Sheriff Hammel,
whose nomination was conceded by the
friends and supporters of De La Monte
at a late hour last night, was due per
haps more to his personal popularity
than to any special efforts of the reg
ulars, although Hammel waged a
strenuous campaign and had the pros
pect of a keen contest with both Wer
dln, the "push" candidate, and De La
Monte, the reform candidate.
The returns came in very slowly from
the precincts outside of Los Angeles
city, and these were awaited with
great eagerness at tho league's head
quarters last night, because it was be
lleved the county returns would ma
terially change the figures compiled
from the returns Inside the city.
The word was passed down the line
yesterday without any pretense at se
crecy for fhe gang to get behind An
derson, but the gang did not respond
to the invitation, and Stanton made a
much better showing than his friends
expected, it is estimated that Curry
had seventy-five automobiles and about
twenty carriages in use throughout the
day. Stanton had about forty autos in
the field, and Ellery about ten. Poli
ticians who know the inside workings
of the Republican machine stated last
night that tho machine expended not
less than $26,000 to win its battle yes
terday; so in the face of this tre
mendous expenditure of coin and en
ergy It is not to be wondered at that
the machine managed to nominate sev
eral of its candidates. The victory of
the league Republicans could hardly
be expected to be without a sting, but
the loss of the machine strongholds
will merely encourage tho good gov
ernment forces of the county to make
a still more determined and systematic
fight against these incumbents at the
general election, November 8. Regard
less of the nomination of such men as
Fredericks, the Oood Government or
ganization, composed of both Republi
cans and Democrats, will effectually
overthrow the last vestige of the ma
chine, at the general election, and but
little apprehension is felt for the out
come of the ilnal battle.
The Lincoln-Roosevelt league and the
Good Government organization have
scored a tremendous victory, through
out the state of California, and in Los
Angeles county the triumph has been
much greater than the most sanguine
leaders ventured to predict. It Is a
victory for reform, a remarkable tri
umph for the decent citizenship of Los
Angeles, that such a gratifying vote
should have been cast for Mr. Johnson
in the very heart Of the machine dis
trict. In the old Eighth ward, for In
stance —the one dark spot on tho politi
cal map of Los Angeles—Mr. Johnson
ran but little behind the push candi
date, Curry. A majority of the pre
cincts in the Eighth gave Johnson al
most as many votes as Curry.
At 2 o'clock this morning the corps
of workers at the league headquar
ters were still busy counting up and
tabulating the returns, which still
were coming In very slowly from the
outlying and county precincts. The
congressional returns were uncertain,
many places from the far sections of
the Seventh district having failed to
send in complete results; but AY. D.
Stephens, the Lincoln-Roosevelt can
didate, was considerably ahead in tho
city, with a substantial majority
which the vote in other sections of the
Seventh could scarcely offset. At the
time of going to press the nomination
of Mr. Stephens was generally con
ceded by the supporters of McLachlan,
and there was little question that
Stephens had received the Republican
nomination by a large majority.
At 2 o'clock this morning It was def
initely known that Fredericks (ma
chine), waa nominated for district at
torney, and that Sheriff Hammel
(regular), had been renominated for
sheriff; Welch (machine), for tax col
lector, and possibly Hartwell (ma
chine), for coroner, although Pasadena
and several other important towns had
not yet reported, and these reports
will materially change the figures re
ceived up to that hour.
Chairman of the nemncrntlc County Central
Registered as Democrat, Claims
He Is Republican
Thomas McKenna, manager of a
sightseeing automobile tour company,
refused to vote at 437 South Hill street,
the polling place of precinct No. 53,
because he could not cast his ballot
as he wished for Dick Ferris, can
didate for the Republican nomination
for lieutenant governor.
McKenna entered the tent' where the
ballots were cast and declared himself
a Republican. He was informed that
he was known to the board as a Dem
ocrat. McKenna reiterated that he
was a Republican and had registered
as such.
Still the board refused to take his
word for it and showed him where
they had him officially listed as a
Then McKenna refused to vote be
cause he wanted to cast his ballot for
Ferris, and left the tent, saying to
those outside that the board had re
fused to permit him to write Ferris'
name on a Democratic ballot, which
he would have voted, he said, because
he wanted to aid the theatrical man
"Whether John St. John, "regular"
candidate for delegate to the Repub
licun county convention, should be per
mitted to advertise himself by a self
made but gigantic poster bearing his
name and placed by him In the win
dow of the Hotel Valdemar, at Sixth
and Hope streets, the polling place for
precinct No. 57, almost caused physical
friction yesterday.
St. John and his running mate, Theo.
La Fayette, also tastefully formed tho
word "VOTE" of "stickers" bearing
their names and pasted them on the
window panes.
Charles H. Guild and H. H. Hunts
berger, Good Governrnent candidates,
objected strenuously and a lively ar
gument ensued. The "regulars" re
fused to haul down their insignia and
the others finally submitted to it, after
placing their own "stickers" on the
window glass.
Celestial Citizens Were Solid for
Lanky Candidate
It was a case of Curry and rice In
precinct No. 25.
And the latter ingredient does not
refer to a candidate for constable, ei
It refers to the Chinese, about a
dozen of whom cast their votes In that
precinct, the polling place of which la
at 221 Commercial street, for the Ce
lestial rice eaters were "strong" for
Curry for governor. There really must
be something In a name, after all, as
none of them could tell Just why they
voted for Curry except that "It Is
"Oh, Curry good," was the explana
tion by Lee Doon Chang, a cook, who
admitted his gubernatorial preference
for the lsnky candidate. "I vote Curry
—Curry good," he repeated, his re
marks being emphasized by others of
his countrymen.
Chang, Incidentally, was the victim
of misregistration. Hla name appeared
on the official lists as Tang, a fact
which caused a short cessation of his
ballot casting after he had signed his
name Chang-. He was told his name
was Tang and he declared to the con
trary. He was told he must sign his
name as he was and after
thinking a few minutes of the pala
table qualities of Curry he submitted
to the Change In cognomen. A member
of the election board scratched out the
offending cognomen and Chang rewrote
It Tang. Then he went Into the voting
booth and returned some three-quar
ters of an hour afterward.
All of the Chinese who vote In pre
cinct No. 25 are registered as Repub
licans and all of them voted for Curry.
"Perhaps somebody fixed them,"
suggested a member of the board, "or
at least got hold of them. But then
the whole precinct will go about two
thirds for him, anyway."
The Celestials registered there In
clude Ho Ah Ching, merchant; Wong
Gan, merchant; Young Mln Ho, cook;
Hong Yew Jong, cook; Wang Sin, mer
chant; Wong Sing, expressman; Ng
Ying,- student; Wong Bin Toy, mer
chant, and Lee Thing, Interpreter.
Whether the predilection of the Chi
nese and other voters In the precinct
Is toward Curry because it Is part of
the old "bloody ate" ward, ruled over
by Thomas P. Savage, saloon keeper
and Republican politician, certain It \a
that Savage still votes there, having
been the twenty-eighth man to cast
Ms ballot there yesterday.
Another oddity of yesterday's doings
In the precinct Is the fact that al
though the law states the polls must
be open at 6 o'clock in the morning,
voters would have had to wait thirty
minutes there, as the ballots were not
to be had until 6:30.
Just what the push had to do with
It Is not known, unless it feared cer
tain early workers might vote against

Kid Solomon Is Presented to Can
didate for Supervisor
"Tvs" Eldridge, candidate to succeed
himself as supervisor of the Third dis
trict, bumping brows with "Kid" Solo
mon, a dethroned prize fighter and
more lately a "white wings," was one
of the primary sights yesterday at 811
North Broadway, the polling place for
precinct No. 36, a stronghold of the
"Tvs" was there with his lips
squeezed tightly over a cigar—not of
the brand which he handed out to most
of the men who voted there. That pre
cinct Is in the northernmost borders
of what is known as Sonoratown, and
the majority of its voters have names
which end Latinly.
For a long time "Tvs" talked quietly,
but apparently most emphatically, with
Morris Orsatti, manager of the Interna
tional Steamship and Railway, agency,
and all the time the "Kid" was circling
closer and closer to the "master."
Once somebody started to present the
"Kid," beginning, "Mr. Eldridge, you
know Mr. Solomon, don't —" but the
somebody was stopped by "Tvs" turn
ing away. Solomon was not discour
aged, however, and kept up his circling
until he finally caught the "master's"
eye and ear. What he told can only
be imagined, but it took some time to
tell It, and the "Kid's" eyes were
brighter and his step more elastic
when he had finished holding his head
close'to "Tus'."
But that was not the only happening
at precinct No. 36.
No, indeed. The "push" kindly had
placed upon the election board three
men who did not even live in the pre
cinct, making an early morning prob
lem for the good government people to
solve quickly. They did it, however,
speedily, and things soon began to hum
slowly, but to hum nevertheless.
Among the incidents of the day was
the discovery that John Vallestero and
John Valestero are the same man. He
was the victim of some misregistra
tion, but instead of voting twice, if
that were the intention of those ac
countable for the man being on the
list twice, he did not vote at all.
There was no one to decide whether
Vallestero or Valestero —only he knows
at present just how to spell his name
had the right to cast his ballot, and
so, as neither regulars nor insurgents
would hedge an inch in the matter,
John went back to work.
Of the 257 voters registered in that
precinct, fully twenty were refused the
right to choose nominees for public
offices because they had neglected tho
formality of stating their party af
filiation when they registered, and con
trary to expectations, the refusal
caused no trouble.
One thing about the primaries that
appealed to some voters was the
chance for an "ecstasy" ride —for that
must be the right name of an auto
mobile trip for them, If to those ac
customed to such pleasures it Is known
as a "Joy" ride.
To quote from Miss Lavlnia, one of
Dickens' characters, they certainly
"'lolled" at ease In seats commonly oc
cupied only by the rich. But on elec
tion day one man Is as good as another
until after he has voted, and the
"push" liberally used machines to
carry men to the polls.
Even the Chinese were quick to see
the advantage of election day, from the
free-automoblle-rlde viewpoint, one of
them confessing after he finally had
voted that he had discovered on a
previous trip to the polls that he had
not time to vote then only because he
wanted another "Joy lide."
One chauffeur estimated that he
would travel about 400 miles yesterday
because of electioneering, and said he
believed about 800 automobiles were In
use In the city for that purpose alone.

Candidate for Judgeship Says He
Exercised His Privilege
Frank G. Finlayson, candidate for
the nomination for the superior court
Judgeship. proudly admitted that he
voted for himself.
"I exercised the great American
privilege of voting for whom I
pleased," he said, "and I pleased to
vote for myself. Every little bit helps,
you know.
"I believe that when a man enters
the voting booth he ceases to be Frank
G. Finlayson, or John Smith, or Tom
Jones, or Jack Robinson, or whatever
his name Is, and is simply an Amer
ican voter. Acting on that principle,
I cast a ballot for Frank G. Finlay
son for superior court judge, but that
Is all I did for myself all day. Imme
diately after voting I went to my office
and passed the remainder of the day
there preparing a law brief.
"It is very difficult to size up the
situation. There seems to be a spirit
of insurgency in the air. Many voters
scratched their ballots and the result
may thus be more difficult of being
learned because of the more time re
quired to count the votes. '
That desire of the "push" politicians
to keep their forefeet continually in
the public trough evidently Is contag
ious, as even the newsboys and other
street gamins yesterday got every
thing they could out of the primaries.
These little sharpers of the thorough
fares were everywhere in evidence,
suddenly slipping before the pedes
trians' faces cards which bore this
"Election comes but once a year,
And when it comes it brings good
So dig into your pockets without a
And remember the newsboy standing
. here."
Of course the doggerel is not much
for meter—but gasmen know more
about that than newsboys—and even
Alfred Austin would not be jealous of
the quatrain, but It proved quite prof
itable to the little beggars, who are
not old enough to smoke bad cigars of
bad politicians. They will be some
day, however, and the politicians did
not forget it.
The lines on the cards are almost
the same as the youngsters use in their
begging at every holiday, the only dif
ference being the substitution of
"Christmas," "New Year," "Fourth of
July" or "Thanksgiving" instead of
"Election," according to the season of
the year.
Joe Margolis, once a lively politician
er" in the district east of Main street,
declared yesterday that he "is out of
politics" and had no interest in the
primaries other than to amuse himself
by watching the manipulations of oth
"We must get out sometime and give
others a chance," explained the once
warm advocate of push politics. "I am
Just amusing myself now."
Joe's brother, I. Margolis, who here
tofore nearly always has been seen in
his brother's wake whenever an election
or politics was "doing," was sick in bed
yesterday, arousing himself only long
enough to cast his vote.
Despite the fact that the court house
is regarded as the stronghold of the
"push." the voting in the precinct in
which It is located was light yesterday.
The polling place was on the Broad
way steps of the building, and only
about 150 of the 374 registered in that
precinct, No. 44, found their way there.
Of rfburse few of the politicians who
make the court house their daytime
headquarters sleep in the neighbor
hood, and the district generally Is filled
with lodging houses, whose inmates
may remain long enough to register
but not to vote.
Incomplete returns from precinct 35,
Colegrove, in which 119 votes were cast,
show a victory for the Lincoln-Roose
velt league Republicans over the ma
chine. Johnson, for governor, leads
Stanton. five to one. Wallace, for
lieutenant governor, leads Ferris four
to one. Hammel, "regular" Republi
can, leads De la Monte two to one.
Gibbons, for coroner, leuCs Hartwell,

Meserve four to one. Butler, for su
