Soft Voiced Plea Made Southern
California Legislators for
Votes for Women
Petitions Presented Asking Sup
port for Many New Laws
and Appropriations
Suffrage as woman's? right, not aa
an act of chivalry on the part of leg
islating man. was the demand of the
suffragists of Los Angeles, made upon
the legislators of Southern California
:it the chamber of commerce yester-
day afternoon.
"Don't put us on a pedestal to wor
ship; treat us as practical, sensible
human beings," was the gist of the
irguments wf the suffragists as pre
sented by Mrs. Cora Lewis.
The directory' room of the chamber
"l" commerce was transformed Into
what a legislative body might look like
a dozen years hence when the bold
and brave women who were to face
the lion—man—ln his den gathered for
what they anticipated might prove a
battle, but which terminated In at
least a. partial triumph for tho suf
■A group of fashionably dressed wo
men gathered Just behind the big ta
ble nt which the legislators sat in their
ample chairs. A row of women also
formed on one of the side, lines as
though to reinforce the main body in
case of need. Tho fashionable tailored
costumes and hats formed a sharp
contrast against tho plain garb of
mere man —a contrast which the wo
men did not•lose sight of, even If
they failed to take advantage of it.
As a harbinger of a condition of
things to come, possibly through wo
man' suffrage, the chamber of commerce
had ' thoughtfully provided a large
punch bowl of lemonade and while the
legislator* were arriving the women
passed around tho little cups among
themselves and Indulged In a sup
pressed lobby on a few of the mem
hers who had not expressed themselves
on tho matter of suffrage.
Among the women present were Mrs.
William Spalding, Mrs. Shelley Tol
hurst, Mrs. Francis Noel. Mrs. . May
Kenny. Miss Prances Wills, Mrs. Cora
I^wlm, Alice Stebblns Wells and Mrs.
Alice K. Brodwall, all prominent mem
bers of the Political Equality league;
Dr. Laura E. Burke of the W. C. T. TT.,
Mrs. Florence Wallls Gould of the
California ■Badger- club and tho Los
Angeles district of the California Fed
eration of, Women's clubs, Mrs. .T. B.
MlUard and Mrs. Chalmers Hmith of
thn parent-Teacher ,• association ■ of
Los Angeles, and others.
Plainly, the women expected battle
from ttie big men gathered there to
hear their oratorical efforts and sup
pressed excitement pervaded the room
until the first part. of the afternoon
program had been concluded the Sena
tor L. A. Kosebtsrry of Santa Bar
bara, president of the delegation, an
nounced that the hour for the hearing
of woman suffrage arguments had been
reached. *
Mrs. Cora Lewis, who had r*en se
lected as tho spokesman of the suf
fragists, had left the room and a mes
senger was sent In search of her. She
was round out In the chamber of com
merce lobby and made* the most of
the dramatic possibilities of the oc
casion as she dignittedly walked around
tho big table to the space reserved for
th« speakers.

swept over the room as Mrs. Lewis

Report on Defenses Withdrawn
When the House Declines to
Take It in Confidence
President Very Anxious That the
Nation Have a Military
Reserve Force
[Associated Press]
WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.—President
Taft directed Secretary of War Dick
inson today to withhold from congress
entirely his report on the national de
fense made In answer to the resolu
tion passed by tho house. The house
declined yesterday to receive the re
port in confidence, hence it will not be
sent at all.
The president took the ground today
that nil tue facts as to the army and
the fortifications along the coasts of
the I'nited States on which congress
Could base any proposed action were
considered In the* regular annual re
ports of the secretary of war. the chief
of staff and other subordinate officers
of the war department. These report!}
already are in the hands of congress.
President Taft agrees with some of
the congressional leaders that these
conclusions and opinions should be
held in strict, confidence. As the house
cannot receive reports in eonlldenee.
the president decided that It would
bn b.>st to withhold the original re
port in Its entirety.
He directed Secretary Dickinson to
prepare a letter to the house giving
the reasons for withholding the
special report and inviting attention
to the regular annual reports, which
would be found to contain all of the
actual information that helps to make
up the reply to tho McLachlan reso
President Taft would deprecate a.
•war scare or hasty action at this time
in any direction. In his massage to
congress he called attention to Home
needs of the army and is hopeful that
favorable action may be taken.
Tho president Is anxious that more
officers be provided by law and that
these nffleerß co-operate with the state
militia, and thus keep In reserve at all
times ;in effective fighting- force.
President Taft has urged the passage
of a bill, now pending In congress, re
pealing the old volunteer act and mak
ing provision for tho organization of
voluiper forces In time of war. The
bill was framed by Senator Koot when
secretary of war and was passed by
the bouse, but was defeated In the
senate by a threatened filibuster, led
by Senator Bacon of Oeorgia.
'The president says the. passage of
the bill would not entail a dollar's ex
pense upon the government until war
actually comes. But when war does
come the methods of organizing the
volunteer force set out in the bill are
In accordance with the best modern
military judgment. The president lias
laid Breat stress upon the necessity of
providing additional officers to co-ope
rate with the state militia and in this
connection points out that at best It
'requires six months to train an in
fantry force, and a year and a half
to two years to train cavalry and field
High Cost of Living Wrings Peti
tion from 3000 Pullman
Brush Artists
I CHICAGO, Dec. 15.—Disgusted with
the absence of tips, 3000 sleeping car
porter* employed on various 'trains
throughout the west petitioned the
Pullman company today for a raise In
wages. Instead of the 83^4 cents a day
rate they are now paid, the porters
want a flat salary of $45 to $50 a
month. i . /
The high cost of living, th« porters
say, makes it absolutely necessary that
they bo given the raise they ask. In
oreaaad prices affect them "going and
coming-," explained one of the backers
of the ' petition. It reaches them
through the pocketbooks of Pullman
passenger*, on whose patronage they
have depended, and It affects them in
the support of their families. Tips have
been falling off steadily for the past
five years, old-time porters assert.
Where once, a Pullman porter could bo
a man of independence, he now must
corral every stray nickel to keep him
self and family alive, they say.
A porter. on one of the New York-
Chffiago flyers, relating some of the
hardships encountered, told of a pro
fessor of the. agricultural department
in a certain university who brought
twenty-nine of his students to see the
International livestock show x in Chi
cago. Tho professor fold the students
it was against the law of the state to
give, a 'tip. The porter said that he
worked all night scrubbing off the mud
ami polishing thirty pairs of shoes. In
the morning he brushed off the whole

Government Swoops Down on
• Capital Investment Com
pany as Bucketshop
Federal Agents Seize Branch
Offices in Twenty-Six
Cities Today
[Associated Press! .
CHICAGO, Dec. 15.—Federal agents
tonight prepared to swoop down to
morrow on twenty-six branches of the
Capital Investment company scattered
through middle western states.
Following: the raid on the main of
fices and four branches In Chicago,
and branches in Jollet ami Aurora, 111.,
today, this roundup will mark one of
the most extensive movements In the
government's war against bucketshop.s.
Action tomorrow, it is said, will be
taken in Milwaukee, Racine and Green
Bay, Will.; Kalamazoo and I<ansing,
Mich.; Davenport and Muscatine,
Iowa; Rnckford, Elgin, Monmouth.
Galesburg, East St. Louis, Beivirtere
and DeKalb 111.; Indianapolis, Ander
son, Kokomo. Munele and Lafayette,
Intl.; Louisville, Ky.; Cincinnati, <>„
and St.' Louis.
According to agents of the depart
ment of justice, the Capital Invest
ment company controlled 5000 miles of
leased wires to supply brandies with
news of the New York stock market,
and was doing- a business of more than
$10,000,000 annually. It is said that on
one ten-point break In the market the
concern netted $600,000 in a single day*.
The government alleges the firm
dealt with its customers on a basis of
"heads, I win; tails, you lose." In this
connection federal agents say the com
pany controlled two fast new York
wires which were beating the "ticker"
with regular market . quotations by
from three to five minutes. With this
advance information the men in charge
of the company's offices would decide
whether orders should be tilled.
The government charges the concern
bought no stocks outright, but took a
commission on all orders and played
the "longs" against tho "shorts."
Although operated at a loss six
months In the year because of Its ex
tended wire „ service and many
brunches, the concern is said to have
been a biff payer at the end of the
year. . It lias : recently been dealing 1
heavily in cotton. .
This concern is a successor to the
Hammond Elevator company, which
did a big bucketshop business for a
number of years. The principal offices
of the elevator company were at Ham
mond, Ind., until the. operation of such
a concern In Indiana was made a fel
ony. The Hammond Elevator com
pany was then dissolved find the Capi
tal Investment company was organ
ized under the laws of Illinois.
Among the warrants that have not
been nerved in connection with the
case are those against Simon McHie,
and William R. Holligan of New York,
and William J. I.loyd, district traffic
manager of the Western Union Telo
graph company In Chicago.
It is said that seventeen more ar
rests will be made here.
At the federal building tonight it
was said that the Capital Investment
company case would be taken before
a federal grand jury.

At first he seemed to be seeking a
route to liherty through the lines of
the determined farmers, but failing in
this, he turned the gun he had bought
earlier in the day on himself and sent
a bullet Into his brain.
When tin: members of the posse
reached his side they found $2500 which
Ward had stolen from the bank. The
bank officials say all of the stolen
money was recovered. Ward, who lives
twelve miles northeast of Ivuray, went

Failure of All Plans for a Strike
Settlement Makes Labor
War Desperate
CHICAGO, ]>e<\ 15.—Th* paßsiiifr of
all hope of an Immediate settlement of
the garment workers' strike threw
many strikers into a frenzy of/despair
today, and the.labor war entered the
most serious stage of its history.
In riots, which began early, one strik
er was shot and killed, another was
probably fatally wounded, four police
men were injured and another Striker
was hurt.
The strikers were shot by the pollW!

The. rioting started when a woman
strike breaker slapped a picket who
had seized her. Private detectives in
terfered and policemen went to their
assistance. The rioting- soon became
general. Only one arrest was made.
As a result of the riot, every availa

on reserve duty to ho prepared to rush
into the strike area. The number of
men regularly detailed to watch the

SAX FRANCIfcSCO, Dec. lE.—That tht>
investigations following- the smuggling
into San Francisco of fifteen contra
band Chinese on December 4 from the
steamer Manchuria may result In the
uncovering: of a gigantic iraffle in
Orientals, in which white men are en
gaged, was the statement of Frederick
S. Stratton, collector Of the port of
San Francisco today. Collector Strat
ton declared himself "especially exer
olsed over the fact, that there should
be in this connection any attempted
corruption Of government officials,"
and hinted at repeated attempts on the
part of smugglers of both opium and'
contraband laborers to bribe men in the
government service.
"I have no doubt that there Is flag
rant evasion of the law," said Collector
Btratton, "all along the Pacific coast,
but with our present resources we are
practically powerless to stop it. Bev
eral years ago immigration officials
were taken off the big boats, when they
lay at tlie (locks, and the big liners
are without surveillance after docking,
except that of the customs officials.
Buch attention as the customs officials
give to Immigration affairs i.-, merely
that of comity, and it Is not In the line
of regular duty of tha men stationed
on tho boats to Match for contraband
Chinese, We will give the immigra
tion officials all the. aid possible, but
there is need of much greater resources
effectively to watch the various ports."

A breakfast punctuated with twenty

ination formed parts of testimony and
evidence given yesterday in the fight
of Beatrice Anita Baldwin-Turnbull to
obtain a daughter's share of tho estate
or Kilns J. Baldwin. n
Before an ever increasing crowd and
in a stifling atmosphere the action was
resumed yesterday morning before
Judge Rives of the probate department
of the superior court. So many wanted
to see and hear that a bailiff was sta
tioned at the door to keep necessary
spaces clear. *
More women appeared yesterday that)
at any other time during the proceed
ings, being drawn, supposedly, by the
announcement that Mrs. Lillian Ash
ley Turnbull, the mother of the claim
ant, and wh» alleges she was duped
Into what she thought was a contract
marriage with Baldwin, would testify.
She did, being on the stand all day
long and gratifying the morbid by de

Miss Baldwin-TurnbuH, however, did
not appear, there being no legal need
of her presence, sin- supposedly was
at the beach.
Mrs. Turnbull was placed upon iim
stand shortly after 10 o'clock. Her di

of the afternoon. She told the story
of her career from the .date of her birth
at Royalton, vt.. November 11,. 1563.
Her father, a stockraisor. died when
she was 16 years' old, and his death
was followed by that of her mother,
In Boston in 1890. Then the girl went
