Scores Grafters Says Harri =
man Is Responsible for
San Francisco Craft
Philadelphia Jan Speaking be
fore the City Club here today Francis
J Hdncy of San Francisco declared
that R H Harriman through his con
trol of tile Southern Pacific railroad
was responsible for the graft and cor
ruption that has been found In the
Golden Gate city With Abo Ron and
Harriman was linked the head of tho
United Railway corporation of San
Francisco by Mr Honey but the real
boss ho said sits in Now York and
has as one of his agents in California
W F Herrln general counsel of the
Southern Pacific railroad I
San Francisco is no worse and no
better than the average American
city Mr Honey said With too
single exception of course of Phila
delphia and even hero you have noth
ing like wo unearthed in my city But
the causes of corruption aro the same
In all cities In San Francisco wo I
found two elements at work Coming
from one source was the public service
corporations and from another was the
saloons and dives while behind our
back theso forces Joined hands
In this unholy alliance the boss was
the connecting line but he was simply
tho agent of tho real boss the big busi
ness man who wanted to exploit the
public service corporation The politi
cal boss was really the small duck In
the pond Behind him was the public
service corporation and tho Southern
Pacific railroad
According to my deduction the
head of tho legal department of the
Southern Pacific railroad W E Her
rln was the boss behind the apparent
I boss BuL I am convinced that Horrin
was after all tho tool of the actual
Great applause followed Mr Heneys
charge We must reason from cause
to effect Heney went on The cor
ruption of tho city life In San Francis
co was not wholly made by Reuf but
was duo to the fact that Harriman
wanted to use certain men Our real
boss sits in New Yorlc nnd reaches
acrross tho country in working out his
They say when theso things aro
discussed that they must employ such
means They argue from the same
premises that Jimmy Logue did
when he planned to rob a bank that
he was in need of money The public
service corporation and the railroad
wanted something for which they were
not willing to pay the public which
owned the franchises they wanted to I
get under their control It was easier
to purchase the political boss and tho
councilman so the respectable busi
ness man sends his agents into the
public market to get the goods
Other cities have had similar ex
periences and I have oven heard It
said that something of the sort has
been attempted in Philadelphia
1 would like to talk with you about
the San Francisco fire but It would
take me an hour or more and my phy
sician says I must not make any
speeches But what IB the remedy for
this corruption In municipal life The
American people who have tried popu
lar government for much more tliau a
century have been slow to work out
their problems Why Is this
Wo have voted ballots that the
bosses could see all these years Wo
could not give any time to think out I
oui problems but we went away down
In the corner of the Pacific ocean to I
Australia to find a method of the bal
lot Why we did not blink this out
Simply because the brains of the coun
tY are engaged in making money and
seine of the ablest of our men applying
their powers in corrupting public life
OJ How shall we get people to exercise
their rights
Never by the convention plan
Then why not try the remedy of the
uniform primary ballot and wipe out
the boss A man Is a bad public ser
vant because bo lias a bad master and
responds to him Enter the primary
and you would fight the battle let tho
iT c
people be Iho master and there will
always bo good public servants Tho
politician will always respond to his
