MAINTAIN SEARCH
FOR YOUNG WOMAN
Interest in Pursuit of Times Dy
namiters Centers at San
Francisco
BURNS CONSULTS SEYMOUR
Labor Federation Committee In
vestigates Cause of Explo
sion-Letters Ignored
I* Interest in the pursuit of the men
supposed to have dynamited the Times
building and caused the death of more
than a score of employes centered in
San Francisco yesterday. Five detect
ives exerted themselves to trace to her
hiding place the young woman said to
be J. B. Bryce's sweetheart. Bryce is
one of the trio concerned in the pur
chase of 800 pounds of dynamite at
Giant, Cal., September 20, part of
which was used, it is believed, to blow
up the Times.
Detective W. J. Burns is in San
Francisco. Ho was closeted for several
hours yesterday with Chief Seymour of
the San Francisco police, going over the
details gathered in that city. The lat
est clews, supplied by Mrs. D. H. Inger
soll, who heard two men to whom she
rented a room plotting to dynamite
some building, according to the story
She told to the police, were carefully
considered and most of the day devoted
to running them down. It Is believed
that once Bryce's sweetheart Is located
his apprehension will be easy.
That the gasoline schooner Kate and
Captain Osterhaus, owner of the vessel,
continue to be important factors in the
case is evident from the fact that ef
forts to locate both are still being
made. Requests for information re
garding the vessel have been sent to
ports along the coast of Lower Califor
nia and Mexico.
CLAIM OAS EXPLOSION
Regardless of the fact that the
wrecking of the Times building is gen
erally attributed to dynamite since the
experts selected by Mayor Alexander
made their report, the committee ap
pointed by the State Federation of La
bor to conduct an Investigation of the
disaster claims to have a mass of evi
dence to support the theory of a gas
explosion. It is asserted that many af
fidavits and much testimony have been
obtained. The committee, however,
will not go Into details. Its report will
be made direct to the federation.
An Investigation yesterday showed
that the statement that a body was
found in the Baumgardt building late
Wednesday was erroneous. Coroner
Hartwell searched carefully where a
laborer said he saw the body, but could
find no trace of lt.
Thousands of letters are pouring ln
on the police department and the de
tectives connected with the investiga
tion from persons who believe they
have clews and who hope to share
in the huge reward which has been of
fered for the capture and conviction of
the men believed to have dynamited
the building. Practically all are being
ignored until the search for the
Schooner Kate and the three men who
purchased dynamite at Giant is con
cluded. , . ■'_,!

MANUFACTURERS PREJUDGE
TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION
National Association Denounces
All Who Condone Unionism
NEW YORK, Oct. 13.—Resolutions
condemning the International Typo
graphical union as being responsible
In some degree fur the destruction of
the Los Angeles Times building and
extending sympathy to the owner,
Gen. Harrison Grey Otis, were adopt
ed unanimously today by the board of
directors of the National Association
of Manufacturers. The resolutions in
part follow:
"This board recognizes this act of
destruction of life and property as in
line with the general policy of crim
inal unionism as exemplified by innu
merable cases of resorting to the use
of dynamite to enforce the doctrine of
rule or ruin and that It places the
responsibility therefor not alone upon
the human tools who actually perpe
trated the crime, but. In due propor
tion, upon those who in any manner
foster an organization whose lino of
conduct leads to such results
A telegram of condolence was sent

Feats Appear Almost Incredible

to General Otis, saying among other
things:
"While dynamite has destroyed your
property It is the belief of this board
that it cannot destroy the spirit of pa
triotism that has caused you to make
the gallant fight you havo made for
the preservation of natural as well as
constitutional freedom ln commerce
and industry, reward for which will be
exemplified in the sounding of your
praises for generations to come."

FOUR SHIPS ARE ADDED
TO NEW PANAMA LINE
Bates-Chesebrough Company to
Have 7 Steamers on Coast.
Four Run to Seattle
Seven ships will be put ln service on
the California-Atlantic steamship line,
which la to be started on this coast
by the Bates-Chesebrough company of
San Francisco and New York, instead
of three, as originally announced, ac
cording to the statement of President
H. S. Pates of that company yester
day. The reason given for Increasing
the number of ships is that business
offered so far has exceeded expecta
tions to such an extent that three
boats could not care for it all.
The four extra ships will run not
only to Los Angeles harbor and San
Francisco, but also to Portland and
Seattle, to take care of the northwest
ern trade. At the present time the
first steamer, the Mackinac, is loading
With Balm on In Seattle, which com
modity will furnish the bulk of freight
on the first trip.
The steamers which as announced
originally were to operate only be
tween Los Angeles, San Francisco and
Panama, will continue to do bo, only
the four recently added running fur
ther north than the bay cities.
it is expected that the Mackinac will
arrive here about the middle of next
week. Already a good sized cargo la
awaiting the ship here for transpor
tation to New York via Panama and
New Orleans.

RAMESES BRANDS HINDOO
MYSTICISM AS FAKERY
Claims There Is No Such Thing
as Magic or Thought
Transference
"There ls no such thing as magic;
there is no such thing as second sight,
or mind reading, or thought .transfer
ence; there Is nothing but fakery and
humbug in Hindoo mysticism, 1' and I
challenge any Spiritualist or.medium
to show me any trick or trickery done
by him or her that I haven't done in
the open, or cannot do. And I will
repeat that challenge as often as they
desire, and meet the best of them un
der their own conditions, and not only
do what they do but do things they
can't doand without any 'spirits'
either."
This sweeping assertion was made
yesterday. by Rameses, the magician
now working at the Orpheum. Ram
eses himself, who learned many of the
tricks he performs from the "ma
gicians" of' Egypt, where, he says, the
best in the world are to be found,
does things that seem Incredible to the
naked eye. But every trick he per
forms is very simple "when you know
how." That, he declares, is all there
Is to the best work" of the best me
dium that ever cajoled a duped "cir
cle." And in his list of fakers he
includes palmists, astrologers, mediums
alike
"Palladino, who fooled the so-called
savants of two continents," he went
on, "was found out. John Slater, the
American, has been found out. It's
the same way with all of them—tricks,
tricks, that anyone can do who de
votes the time and attention to that
sort of thing. We do those things on
the stage all the time; there they are
too common to be worth while any
more. x
"Don't you suppose if I went into
a dark room arid surrounded myself
with a lot of gammon and fakery I
could be the greatest •medium' that
ever lived, if I merely made a girl
go up in flames and then brought her
to life from her own ashes? Yet 1
do that twice a day on a stage, and
it is only one of a number of tricks
to amuse a public. So, divest a me
dium of his or her embellishments and
mystery and put that same medium
out in the open and what would hap
pen? The medium's 'wonders' would
be so silly and so simple that the pres
ent dupes would be tho first to hoot
at them." „ , ,
"How about the celebrated fakers or
India?" he was asked.
"What do they do that we cannot
do They make a man disappear
yes? I do the same with a woman.
They make flowers grow before your
eyes' So do I, and give you the flow
ers to prove it. They make a boy
climb a rope thrown into the air and
disappear? Well, did you ever try to
look up into the air on a bright sunny
day' How far up can you see, es
pecially If you are facing the sun?
Take that same sun in the tropics,
where it blazes still more Intensely,
and your sight line is still lower How
do you know that the boy has disap
peared? He has merely gone out of
your range of vision, that's all. I
never yet have seen a person who has
actually witnessed these so-called won
drous feats; they have always heard
of someone else who has. Buncombe,
all of It." t . .
During its six years' career the Be
lasco theater has known many eventful
occurrences, but in point of brilliancy
next Monday night's performance of
"Zira" with Eleanor Gordon, the new
leading woman of the company, in the
principal role, gives indication of
eclipsing all previous happenings of a
slmlar character.
Mss Gordon selected this J. Hartley
Manners and Henry Miller play for her
Initial appearance as the feminine head
of the Belasco company, Inasmuch as
the part gives her opportunity for
strong emotional acting.
Rehearsals of "Zlra" have demon
strated beyond any sort of a doubt that
Miss Gordon selected wisely, for her
work during tho period of preparation
for the Monday premiere has made It
apparent that her success is pretty
certain to be sweeping and pronounced.
In the role of Captain Sylvester, Lew-
Is S. Stone will have ample chances
for somo fine acting, and as the feat
ured member of the Belasco organiza
tion has played the part on several
earlier occasions, Miss Gordon is sure
to have splendid support from this able
and popular actor.
The entire Belasco company will be
concerned in the performance of "Zira."
The advance sale of seats indicates that
the clientele of the Belasco Is going to
turn out ln large numbers to welcome
Miss Gordon

COUNTERFEITERS PASS
BAD BILLS IN CITY
Two Men Victimize Stores in the
Outlying Districts
The police department and members
of the secret service department :of
the government are searching for two
men who are reported to be passing
counterfeit bills about the city. Sev
eral complaints have been made to the
police during the last few days by vic
tims of the counterfeiters. Small
stores in the outlying districts of the
city seem to be the field of the coun
terfeiters.
The system of the men seems to be
to take a bill known as the "Eagle
Center" of a one dollar denomination
and alter the amount to represent $10
or $20. The alteration is made by past
ing the numerals over the one dollar.
Several of the bills have been given
to secret service agents and are said
to be specimens of good counterfeiting.
