BALFOUR'S PLANS SPLIT HIS PARTY ON TARIFF ISSUE English Opposition Leader's Pur pose to Submit Question to Referendum Causes Alarm LIBERALS GAIN ARGUMENTS Winston Churchill Has a Special Guard of Detectives During Speech at Dundee __________ * * i . [Associated Press] LONDON, Dec. I.—There Is a possi bility of an unexpected result In the 1 attempt by A. J. Balfour, opposition leader, to remove tariff reform from the Immediate field of politics. The question looms larger than ever in the campaign tonight, so that Mr. Balfour himself, In a speech at Read ing, was fain to explain that his party had not altered its views on this sub ject, and that tariff reform was still a chief plank In the party's constructive policy; but he explained the Unionists needed to obtain the formal and ex plicit consent of the people thereto. The policy of referendum, he said, was consistent with the true Idea of pop ular government. ARGUMENTS FOR LIBERALS Balfour's pronouncement, November 29, that he was willing to submit tariff reform to a referendum, has rather sundered than knit his party and has supplied the Liberals with another ef fective argument against tariff re form, namely, that Mr. Balfour has been compelled to sidetrack it. Interest ln the speeches tonight cen tered in Premier Asquith's reply to Balfour at a meeting in Wolverhamp ton. The premier said: "We are living in times of rapid movement, when It is a relief to wake any morning and not And some fresh part of the constitution reconstructed." He described Mr. Balfour's "about face" on the question of the reform of the house of lords and on tariff as "unique, almost Indecent." Speaking on the referendum, the premier said that after a study of the working of the system In foreign coun tries he arrived at the conclusion that It had proved a most unsatisfactory and disappointing method of ascer taining public opinion. Winston Spencer Churchill, home secretary, addressed several meetings at Dundee tonight. The home secre tary had a special guard of detectives to protect him against suffragist at tentions. .' , . STRANGER'S TONGUE LASHES WOMEN AT FEDERATION Sneers at Rich Sisters Who Had Scored Suffragettes (Special to The Herald) SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., Dec. I.— A sensation was caused at the Wom en's Federation meeting this afternoon when a woman, a stranger, replying to an anti-suffragette address by Mrs. Edward Roberts, indulged in stinging personalities. Mrs. Roberts had stated that in a recent visit in London she had seen a suffragette enthusiast, dressed in velvet though claiming to be a millhand, and thought that her dress belled any existing grievance. Given three minutes to reply, the woman, In forceful but excellent Eng lish, declared herself a New England millhand, recited the poverty and hard ships of her class, saying many a woman had even to sell her soul to lustful men for bread, "and," vehe mently declared the speaker, fixing her flashing eyes on Mrs. Roberts, "I have never been like some bankers' wives, who can trot off in fine raiment to Europe." The suffrage topic had been fought with warmth, but this brought an elec tric climax, the session closing In an uproar.

In a few minutes the vessels, which had come up through the fog shadowy and indistinct, were swinging at their anchors, and not many minutes later the reception committee comprising the most prominent Japanese in Los Angeles had boarded the cruisers and extended Its welcome.

The Nipponese fleet was welcomed by a reception committee consisting of seventy-five prominent local Japanese —and such a welcome was tendered that the first words uttered' by Rear Admiral Rokuro Yashlro on greeting the committee were words of praise for Southern California and its hospitality. The two cruisers were sighted off Point Firmin lighthouse at 7:30 a. m. They came on slowly from out the heavy mist which hung over the har bor, their dark - brown hulks scarcely visible and in strange contrast to the white of the American battleships. COMMITTEE EXTENDS WELCOME Scarcely had the ships dropped anchor In the outer harbor before a chartered launch, bearing the local committee, went alongside the Asama, flagship of Admiral Yashlro. The com mitteemen, headed by the Rev. T. Ko muro, president of the. Japanese asso ciation, went on board, where they were met by Admiral Yashlro and his two principal staff officers.

FOSS MAKE NEW ATTACK ON LODGE Governor-Elect of Massachusetts Vigorously Assails Record of United States Senator PROVINCETOWN, Mass., Dec. I.— The speaking term of Governor-elect Foss, against the return of Henry Ca bot Lodge to the United States sen ate began here tonight. In beginning his address, Mr. Foss said the verdict of the people of Cape Cod in electing him to congress last spring, "sealed the doom of Can nonlsm," compelled the national ad ministration to seek reciprocal trade relations with Canada; caused Sena tors .Aldrlch and Hale to abdicate their seats in the senate, and gave the coun try at large the first real hope of tar- In* revision. Speaking directly of Senator Lodge, Mr. Fobs said: "Working on in silence and secrecy, he resorts to his self-constituted po litical machine, the machine which has dominated Massachusetts politi cally for years. He is seeking the counsels of those wham ho serves, the privileged Interests, and has ignored the verdict of the people. He has ignored th.- [act that he should repre sent the people and considers that he by the representative of special In terests, believing that their indorse ment Is all-sufficient for him." Mr. Foss assailed Mr. D' dge's rec ord in. the senate, contending the sena tor was hostile to reciprocity with Canada, and had killed the Hay-Bond reciprocity treaty with Newfoundland. "What legislation In the interests of the people bears ids name?" asked Mr. Foss, who answered his own question by saying, "only one bill that I re call bears his name, and that Is the Force bill a measure that causes every honest man to blush."

THE HOME PAPER OF GREATER LOS ANGELES MASTER OF ALDEN BESSE TO GO FREE; RIDGEWAY RESIGNS Immigration Chief Succeeded by Famed Coolie Catcher; Hunt for Smugglers On U. S. CUTTER IS ON WATCH Federal Officials on Government Vessel After Oriental Law Violators With the United States revenue cut ter Bear, loaded with immigration offi cers, patrolling the California coast from the Mexican line north to Santa Monica in search of Chinese smugglnlg craft, and wtih Charles T. Connell, a noted coolie catcher, just arrived in Los Angeles to bo inspector of immi gration, vice Arthur Ridgeway, re signed, affairs are humming in federal circles and a determined effort by tho United States government completely to crush the smuggling traffic In Mon golians on the Southern California coast has begun. The resignation of Rldgeway became public yesterday. For three years ho has been inspector of immigration in Los Angeles. According to current re port at the federal building yesterday he Is now on his way to Washington to confer with authorities there on mat ters pertaining to the recent conduct of his office. Coincident with the resignation of Rldgeway came the announcement last night that J. W. McAllister, captain of the bark Alden Besse, whom Ridker way was pratlcularly Insistent ln prose cuting. is to be freed of all charges and released from prison this morning. Shortly after midnight United States Marshal Leo Youngworth confirmed the report that Washington had ordered the dismissal of the charges against McAllister and that the old sea dog immediately would be released from custody. It Is reported that the efforts of United States Senator Frank Flint at the capital and Attorney Frank Do mlnguez In this city had a large part to play in securing the release of the captain of the Alden Besse. The re lease of McAllister is said to have a direct bearing on the resignation of Rldgeway. McAllister has been held here for weeks on the charge that he, allowed two aliens placed in his charge to escape from custody, although they were starving at the time and the cap tain had no food with which to feed them. It is stated that there Is no connection between the resignation of Rldgeway and the activity in the Chinese smug gling cases, although an expert in com bating the smuggling game has been now stationed here in the person of Connell. The immigration officers who are now patrolling the coast on the Bear are searching for two gasoline vessels re ported to be en route north from Ma zatlan, loaded with Chinese whom it is intended to smuggle into this country- According to the report, the smug gling craft left Mazatlan some weeks ago, loaded with Chinese who havo paid the smuggling fee to be put on American shores. . ) According to the report, one of the vessels contains twenty Chinese and the other eighteen. If the smugglers should ' succeed in passing the revenue) cutter it is probable they will run In close to shore, under the cover of night, and land their human cargoes some where between San Diego and Santa Monica. Charles T. Connell, for eight i years chief inspector of immigration at Tuc son, Ariz., assumed Ridgeway's for mer duties as inspector here yesterday. Mr. Connell was accompanied to his new post by F. W. Berkshire, super vising inspector for the immigration district of the entire southwest, who will remain with him for several days until he is familiar with his new duties. Ridgeway's resignation did not coma as a surprise to government attaches in the new federal building. it is said that complaints have been registered at Washington against the former official to the effect that he prosecuted some cases vigorously and was lax in the prosecution of others. Cases In the federal court often re sulting In dismissals after the defend ants had suffered long periods of Im prisonment in the county jail also are said to have caused criticism of Ridge way at Washington. It is also s£.ld by federal officers that the former Immi gration officer did not mork ta harmo ny with them. I "Mr. Rldgewya has been summoned east on Important business," said a young woman employed at the Ridge way home at 1639 West Twenty-fourth street, yesterday. "lie will not be back for several weeks." Inspector Council would havo nothing to say lii regard to the matter yester day further than to state that he had knowledge to the effect that numerous Chinese were being smuggled over tho border and his office would take imme diate ".tops to halt them and capture the smugglers. *:" V"", * Connell has lived on the border and participated In many of its stirring events for more than a quarter of a century. He is thoroughly experienced in the Immigration service, and has to his credit ii any important captures. He Is considered by the federal, author ities a valuable addition to the service in Los Angeles.
