WOOLWINE SPIKES
FREDERICKS' GUNS
Democratic Candidate Empha
sizes Charges Before Large
S. Pasadena Audience
FAILURE OF PROSECUTIONS
Speaker Flays Graft Politicians
Who Have Influenced Cases
Against Offenders
In spite of the fact that two of
Fredericks' henchmen were working all
day In South Pasadena, in a vain en
deavor to influence the voters to stay
away from the V^oolwlne mass meet-
Ing held in Herlihy hall, Mission nail.
South Pasadena, the crowd that granted
Mr. Woolwine last night was a record
breaking one. Every seat In the hall
was taken and many stood through
out the entire address. Ther? wore
more persona present than were as
sembled to hear Hiram Johnson some
time ago at the same hall.
Mr. Woolwine reviewed his charges
against the present incumbent of the
district attorney's office and insisted
throughout that the people ask him
question*. He assured his hearers
thai all questions would be gladly list
ened to and answered In detail.
In reviewing the protection by the
district attorney of grafting official!
and persons of influence he stated:
FREDERICKS' MANY FAILURES
"The people of the county are now
bonded for millions of dollars on the
Owens river proposition, on the harbor
bonds, the power bonds, and the va
rious other bond issues. You have bad
I an example of the failure of the dis
trict attorney to act and protect your
rights in the oiled roads graft, the
river bed steal, the attemnte 1 bond
steal, the grafting Harp«r regime, the
furniture deal, in some of which san
dals the district attorney was not only
inactive but suppressed and covered up
the prosecutions.
"Now If you want this condition of
things to continue. If you don't want ,
your Interests protected, if you don't I
want equality before the law, vote for
Fredericks, because, if I nm elected,
conditions of that sort cannot exist In
1..0S Angeles county, and such betray
ers shall not go unwhipped of Justice."
Mr. Woolwine, in speaking of the
King will case, stated:
"If Fredericks had criminally prose
cuted the forgers In the King will case.,
as it was his duty to, he probably
would not have got a cent of money,
but would have what he cannot now
have—a clean conscience."
DENVER CASK IN POINT
Mr. Woolwine then explained the
similarity between the fight waged In
various cities in the United States for
equal law enforcement, and referred
to the battle, waged by Judge Ben B.
Llndsey In Denver. Tho speaker in
vited the attention of the audience to
Judge Llndsey's book, "Tho Beast,"
Wherein he writes of a district attor
ney in Denver consistently protecting
the grafting politicians of that city
] and building up a reputation by the
prosecution of the poor and obscure.
He drew a parallel between the careers
of District Attorney Fredericks and
that faithless official at Denver. He
continued:
"There Is not a grafting politician
in the county of Los Angeles today
who is not the friend and ally of J. D.
Fredericks In this fight."
Following Mr. Woolwlne's address
Walter J. Desmond, Good Government
' and Democratic candidate for county
i tax collector, spoke. Mr. Desmond
I again called attention to the discrep
ancy between the cost of eoleetlon of
taxes in Sun Francisco and Los An
geles county, showing that it has cost
the people of the latter county more
than twice qs much to collect every
dollar of tnxos than It has the people
of San Francisco county.

by state that we have known for many
years Stephen O. Long, candidate for
judge of the superior court, and take
pleasure in publicly expressing our
knowledge of his well known qualifi

We know him to bo a man of ster

twenty years' successful practice at
this bar to serve tho people of this
county in the capacity of a superior
court judge.
We believe if he is elected he will
make a- Just Judge who will perform
the duties of that office without fear
or favor.
The state platforms of both political
parties have declared in favor of a
non-partisan Judiciary, and it is our
belief that no better application of
that principle can be made than to
support Stephen G. Long for superior
court judge.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 6, 1010.
Mayor Alexander Repudiates Fredericks;
Refuses to Speak on the Same Platform
In response to a letter from the Republican county central committee asking Mayor George
Alexander, who is a member of the committee, to speak for the Republican ticket in the present
campaign, the committee yesterday received a letter from the mayor repudiating John D. Fred
ericks as the candidate for district attorney and refusing absolutely to support Mr. Fredericks or
appear on the same platform with him.
In addition to the long list of Woolwine charges the mayor asserts that Mr. Fredericks has
used the office of district attorney for political purposes and has refused to fight against the "solid
three" of the board of supervisors.
Mayor Alexander's letter is as follows: October 19, 1910.
Republican County Central Committee,
424 South Broadway, City.
Gentlemen: In reply to yours of October 12, I will say that I will be glad to speak
in behalf of the Republican ticket at two or three meetings during the last two weeks
of the campaign, and that the committee may assign me to almost any evening other
than Mondays and Thursdays.
Under no circumstances, however, will I appear on the platform with Capt. John D.
Fredericks and I wish it distinctly and publicly understood that in no way must my
action in speaking for the Republican ticket be construed to be an indorsement of Capt.
Fredericks 1 for the following reasons:
Laying aside the charges made by Mr. Woolwine, which to my mind have not been
disproved, I cannot support Mr. Fredericks because—
First—He has used the office of district attorney for political purposes.
Second—While I was supervisor the difficulties of the situation were greatly in
rr^rA because the district attorney's office would not stand up and fight with me
clninct the schemes of the "solid three." Very truly yours,
against the schemes OI GEORGE ALEXANDER.
CHARGE HARTWELL
HAS IGNORED LAW
Leading Undertakers Make Ac
cusations Against Coroner
in Conduct of Office
Leading undertakers of Los Angeles
have investigated the advertisements
lof Coroner Calvin Hartwell, which
I have praised the Southern Pacific ad
herent to the skies, and as a result
have made a direct charge of misrep
resentation.
In the following: communication tho
Investigators explain what they have
found:
'•The frantic efforts made by Cal
vin Hartwell and his machine friends
to save to themselves the coroner's
office is almost pitiful. In a paid ad
vertisement, which they are publish
ing in the columns of the press
throughout the county, entitled 'A
Statement of Facts,' they try to tell
to the voters of Los Angeles county
that the coroner's office is conducted
in a manner quite acceptable to some
of the undertakers and that courteous
and businesslike treatment Is handed
out to all alike.
BTATEMKNT OF UNDERTAKERS
" 'A Statement of Facts' is nothing
but political buncombe of very poor
quality. The majority of undertakers
whose names are attached to this
'statement' are outside of the city and
each is the only undertaker in his
town. Many of these are putting forth
their best efforts to elect Dr. A. C.
Pratt, a reputable, highly-respected
physician, and will continue to do so
until the polls close.
"It is a fact well known to all that
the office of coroner has been dom
inated and controlled by the corpora
tions. Four years ago Calvin Hart
well, who was then county recorder,
could have been elected to that office,
but he was forced by the corporations'
agent at a packed convention, to ac
cept the nomination for assessor, an
office Unit paid exactly the same sal
ary, in order to boat Ben Ward, who
was recognized as the best assessor
Los Angeles county ever had. In a
most strenuous campaign, which cost
him his life, Ben Ward ran indepen
dently and won out by an overwhelm
ing majority. Later on when Dr.
Lanterman resigned from the office the
machine took care of Calvin Hartwell
by appointing him as coroner, but com
pelling him to retain practically tho
same office force that served under
Dr. Lanterman.
"Tho incumbent is no more a cor
oner than you who read this. Fred
Williams, chief deputy, and Dr. Camp
bell, autopsy surgeon, are the moving
spirits of the office, and until this
campaign started you were told the
bodies of your relatives, who met an
untimely death, must go to one of two
undertaking firms. Why? Because
many of the -higher-ups,' who placed
and keep them there, are stockholders
in one or the other of these two houses.
"The chief objection to Calvin Hart
well is that he is absolutely powerless
in the office. A man who occupies the
position of coroner should be coroner
in fact as well as name, carrying all
the power and responsibilities of the
office, and they should not be dele
gated to anyone, much less to one who
is placed and kept in the office by tho
agents of the corporations.
"In view of these facts, which, deny
as they may, are still facts, the voters
should support for the office of cor
oner Dr. A. C. Pratt, not because he
is a Democrat, Republican, or of any
other party, but because ho states
plainly that if elected he will be the
coroner, and that the wishes of the
families or the friends of the dead
shall at all times bo respected and jus
tice and fairness shall bo done to all
alike. „,_ ■ ,

STATEMENT OF FREDERICKS'
PARTISANS BRANDED LIE
Some of Fredericks' overzealous par
tisans have been among empioyes of
the Btreet railway companies circulat
ing the utterly untruthful statement
that Thomas l.cc Woolwino had at one
time declared that motormen should be
held personally responsible for street
car accidents resulting in injury to pe
destrians—that tiny should be dragged
from their cars and sent to the peni
tentiary.
Mr. Woolwine has entered an abso
lute denial of the accusation.
"At no time have I made any such
statement," ho declares, "nor have I
said nnythlng which can be thus inter
preted. It i« simply a campaign lie,
circulated in the hope of fooling a body
of men I believe to be too intelligent to
be misled by any such ridiculous
story."
THE STROLLER'S TALK
The Stroller yesterday made a circle
of the downtown district feeling out
the sentiment as to the chances of
the six candidates for the superior
bench.
Judges Hervey, Moss and Davis were
defeated unexpectedly at the pri
maries, and the fight for the thre va
cancies at once became Interesting.
After the launching of the Woolwine-
Fredericks battle little was heard of
the several candidates for judicial
honors, but the knowledge of the can
didates shown by all with whom the
Stroller talked yesterday demonstrated
that the public has been sizing up
each aspirant minutely. It ia a non
partisan year, so far as these offices
are concerned, for hardly ever was
heard the words Democrat or Repub
lican. It was all Individual merit and
demerit.
There is more talk for Albert Lee
Stephens than any two others. Fln
layson, by reason of being on the Re
publican and Good Government tick
ets and his wide acquaintance is con
ceded by all. Stephens is undoubtedly
next. The battle royal is between
Wood and Craig, with the advantage
in favor of Wood. Wood has the Re
publican nomination and the Good
Government nomination, with a splen
did record as a clean, able and Inde
pendent city attorney of Pasadena.
Craig has the Republican nomina
tion alone, with a decided handicap of
dimension as to his candidacy in the
machinery of the reformed G. O. P.
This may be overcome to some extent
by heroic work at tho polls, as I am
informed there will be a Craig-for-
Craig-alone worker in every precinct
throughout the city and county. Nev
ertheless, the result Wednesday morn
ing will show Frank G. Finlayson, Ai
bert Lee Stephens and John Perry
Wood superior Judges-elect.

Instruction to Voters
How to Vote a Split Ticket :
If you desire to vote for any or all of the candidates indorsed
by the Good Government organization, or for any other candi
dates whose names are found in the column headed "Independent
Nominations," the only safe course is to stamp a cross (X) oppo
site the name of each candidate of your choice FOR EACH OF
FICE ON THE BALLOT. ,
It is not safe to stamp a cross IX ANY PARTY CIRCLE if
you wish to vote for candidates whose names are found in the "in
dependent" column. It is better to be safe than to be sorry.
How to Vote for Judges :
There are three judges of the superior court to be elected for
the full term, one judge of the superior court to be elected for the
unexpired term, and one judge of the district court of appeal for
the unexpired term. If you do not wish to vote your party ticket
straight stamp the cross (X) opposite the names of three candi
dates for the superior court, full term, and one candidate for the
superior court, unexpired term, and one candidate for the district
court of appeal, unexpired term.
The law has many complications. Your will can be best regis
tered and the counting of your ballot best assured if you use the
STAMP OPPOSITE THE NAME OF EVERY CANDIDATE
WHOM YOU DESIRE TO SEE ELECTED, totally disregard
ing the party circle.

Democratic club developed last even
ing; at the Uemocratic rally held in the
board of trade rooms when Dr. Z. T.
Malaby, president of the club, asked
for contributions to finance the re
mainder of the campaign and procure
rigs for election day.
"When our club was organized," he
said, "a fund of $99 was raised by vol
untary contribution to conduct the lo
cal campaign. By iudicious vse of
the fund and through personal work
of local Democrats we have made good
progress, but we need a little more
money and we ask you to contribute

that having a doctor for coroner is as
Important as having a lawyer for dis
trict attorney. He told of reported
misconduct In the coroner's office un-
der the present administration, describ
ing how cases are given to favorite
undertakers, how a Los Angeles doc
tor who is said to be responsible for
Hartwell's appointment drew $700 in
one month recently for autopsy fees
and how people ar~ deprived of the
chance of damage suits against cor
porations because the coroner renders
improper verdicts in favor of the in
terests.
J. P. Carter, former assistant treas
urer under Grover Cleveland, spoke for
Lorln Handley, Democratic* ean/idata
for congross from this district, who
was unable to be present. Mr. Cartor
declared that it is not necessary to
change the constitution or to have a.
revolution to got Justice for the peo
ple, but that all that Is necessary is
to elect the proper men to congress

FREDERICKS GETS COLD COMFORT
IN HARANGUE BEFORE OLD SOLDIERS
Defenders of Union Remember When District Attorney Took the
Part of Policeman Who Brutally Beat an Inoffensive
and Feeble Inmate of Home
Will the veterans of the Soldiers'
home at Sawtelle 'rally round the
llag'' of John D. Fredericks, district
attorney anil Southern PaWflc candi
date to succeed himself? Hardly!
Fredericks practically begged them to
do no Friday afternoon when be de
livered to thorn a harangue upo.i his
love for them, his honor for them and
also his need for then . but tho.-e wh<> :
remember the time when he took the
Ide ol a home policeman who brutally
m Inoffensive and teel • defender
of tli.- union know that his laye for
them is really his desire for their
votes.
Comrades in battle are comrades
still, though the once stalwart forma
are now bent and palsied. Thej fought
for one another in the days of fil-65
r.ith powder and shot and now they
will continue to defend themselves by
the more peaceful but powerful weapon
—the ballot.
They still vividly recall the cruelty
inflicted on one of their comrades by a
man whom Fredericks befriended. It
was in the summer of 190S that the
deed was committed.
Jacob Mulford, of Home company X,
nearly 74 years old, was sitting on the
veranda of his company barracks
about 9 o'clock at night. He was
quietly enjoying the summer evening
and indulging in voiceless memories
of the days when he fought his coun
try's battles.
William A. Foy, a home policeman,
who. it was stated at the time, had
looked too long on the liquor—pur- I
chased, perhaps, in one of the 'blind i
pigs," about the closing of which
Fredericks has made so much cam
paign wind—reached the epnt and in
solently demanded that the orderly
and quite sober old soldier go to bed.
STKIKES BGiTN* VETERAN
Incensed at such an action, Mulford,
with all of the valor which made him
a good soldier in the days when the
United States needed him as such, re
fused.
Foy raised a loaded cane which he
was carrying and struck the old de
f.-nder of his country such a ferocious
blow that the poor old man was pros
trated.
Comrades of the old man, hearing the
disturbance, rushed to the spot, and
found the man. who later was be
friended by Fredericks, "with his
knees on the old man, raining blows
on his face." Finally they succeeded
in getting the officer off the form of
the feeble and nearly unconscious vet
eran, but only after, according to the
FREDERICKS UNFIT, SAY
PROMINENT REPUBLICANS
Well known Republicans residing In
the Seventieth assembly district have
signed a strong 1 protest against Repub
lican support of John D. Fredericks.
The document reads as follows:
"We, the undersigned Republican
voters of the Seventieth assembly dis
trict, believe, as Theodore Roosevelt
does, that the man should be consid
ered above the party. Applying this
principle to local affairs, we cannot
recommend the re-election of John D.
Fredericks and believe him to be an
unfit person to fill the office of district
attorney of Los Angeles county. Grave
charges have been brought against
, him, and we consider that he has not
cleared himself of them."

testimony, ho had been "dragged down
tin stairs, leaving a stream of blood
behind."
Members of the home who testified
at the hearing of Foy before a jus
tice of the peace, told such clear and
connected stories with such convincing
manner thai Foy was held to answer
i,, the superior court in bonds of $500.
That was in Auarust and it was in
September that Fredericks actually
took tin; part of Foy.
Without trial, without railing or
notifying witnesses, according to the
charge of the: old veterans, Fredericks
permitted the man who possessed
enough cowardice to attack with a
loaded cane :> man who helped preserve
the union, to pieuu guilty to a charge
of elinple assault. Then Koy was per
mitted by the wane district attorney
to pay a bi KAurly fine of $25 alter
ooinmittlnK such a deed and to go his
way in peace.
And yet Fredericks asks the old boys
in blue, whose memories still are
strong although they may not be able
to protect themselves against stalwart
friends of the district attorney, for
their votes.
Will they do It? Not while they re
call how Fredericks defended and
practically freed from what they be
lieve s*ould have been a penitentiary
sentence the man who caused their
comrade's blood to "flow in a stream,
after he had been dragged down the
stairs'" and beaten into a state ap
proaching insensibility.
That "stream of blood" still flows in
the memory of old veterans and it
does not bear upon it any votes for
Fredericks.
