BEWARE OF THE TACKLE,
HENEY TELLS STUDENTS
Advises Them to Stand
Fast in Battle for the
Right
SPEAKS AT BERKELEY
Says Rich Man Must Be
Convicted as Deterent
Influence
BERKELEY. April 12. — Francis J.
Heney. assistant district attorney of
San Francisco, advised the students of
the university at an Immense gather
ing of the faculty £nd student body
in Harmon Gymnasium today, to be
come "fightins men," qualified and
trained to give a fight In the battle
of life, for right and against wrong.
Heney is a former student of the unl
. versity. He said In beginning his ad
dress that he had been "fired" from the
university twenty-eight years ago for
"fighting," and that it -was rather an
odd sequel that he should be invited
now to talk to the university people,
because of the reputation he "seemed
to have grained as a fighting man."
The students gave him a great ovation
•when he thus spoke of himself.
President Wheeler introduced Heney
.is a man xrho was "not afraid of any
body or anything." a man who had not
completed a full course at the univer
sity, but surely had taken a full course
in "life.
Heney spoke candidly of conditions
!in San Francisco and did not hesitate
to talk without reserve of the possi
bility of his "fcllow-st-Jdcnt, Abe Ruef.
spending his vacation at San Quentin."
He declared that such an achievement
would not profit much, however, as
conditions must be changed so that the
system of corruption which operated in
all large cities, whereby corporations
I-nd capitalists got special privileges
fter corrupting officials, would be
Violished.
Heney spoke in part as follows:
I xrer a student at this universli*- twenty-
Ijrht rears ncn. an<s am obliepd to confess
ist I vrss fired nut of the nniverslty for fißhtlns.
t Is a rather strsase rocjup! to that experf
n<-e tbat I should be invited hack to ppealc
j roa now because of the reputation I seem
t have made as a fi£htjn£ man.
LEARX TO HE FIGIITERS
When President Wheeler aF»M me to come
\u0084ere. «>verel days apo, I told Uim that I
iths very l-.ury indeed with very important
matters, i When lie explained that this would
be the last opportunity I oould U«tc to^address
you this year. I agreed at once to come, for I
do not knotr of any more Important matter
than the delivery to you young gentlemen of
• roet«s=e which I have for yon. This is the
inesw.cre:
I-esrn tn be figbtin? men. There I» a battle
In life. 1* is tiie battle of ripht against wronp.
So, you are to hi* editing men. Not fighting
ruffiians. nor fist -fighter?, but fighters in a
far hifrher sense. In the pense that Th»o<lore
Kooscvelt Is a njrntinj!: man, you are to be such.
He if ioved and admir»xl, not because be led
our soldiers up Fan Juan H'.ll— not that sort
of a fip'jt — but because he fights the battle
for rirht in civic life, apainst wrong. So Je
rome ik loved, and Folk, md if I «<m entitled
to rour respect or admiration it must be be
osuse I «m identiSed with a fight for right j
• pafnst wrong. . '„!" ; i
you admire your football fighters. Ton know !
what training must be endnred to beccme a j
fighter on the grfdiron. No French dinners, no
cigarettes, but rijrid training rel»s to miml. So
in the world ahead of you. where the fight Is
To be. you most take on armor. !>e prepared by
the adoption of principles to stand fast. When
roa are tackled, as a football man is tackled
on the field, be prepared to stand fast. Rich
men and men of influence will try to pull you
down v* you fight for the right. Have the
strength to resist the tackle. Learn, too. to most
Kdroire the tnan who does etand fast against
tbete temptations.
You must remember that It I* not an easy
ftrht. There are discouragements. You will start
right, I know, planning to stand for the right.
Then you will encounter treachery, especially
.n politics, whl^b is honeycombed with treach- I
rry. If you should s*ek office from a right
. motive, sincerely desiring to help reform things,
corporation men represented by a boss will
•ry to block you and tie you down. Then yon
irill need strength.
OUR FELLOW GRADUATE
Ton innst also rerawnber that it Is a fisht
against conditions, and not against men. If It
were merely a fi?j!t against men, it would be
n waste of time, for example, to r-ffTc to put
Abraham Ruef in the penitentiary. There would
not be so very much accomplished. If that
were all. Abe Muef Is merely the product of
conation*. It it w.-re nut Kaef it would be
Mi<rin Kelly, and if net Martin Keily, then
Pbllly Crimrnins, sad if not i'hilly Crimmins,
then'Higsins: and if not Hiwrfns. tlien Buckley.
If tny friend Abe, our fellow-graduate.
Slaughter* takes bis vacation In San Quentin
there will be another man to take his place,
even aa soon as the primaries in August. The
man has already tried on Abe'a shoes. So. you
see, you must fight conditions and not merely
\u25a0 tnea, or you fight in Tain.
Labor, believe me, is more likely to rote right
than the merchant or corporation class, beciuse
Jt Is less likely to be' momd by self-interest.
And I warn you against failing to cherish re
spect for a laboring man as a fighting man,
or as a man interested most in the country'a
welfare.
In saying that labor will rote right oftener
than the merchant class. I mean to say I that
f=elf Interests In the last analysis oftenest dic
tates how a man will vote. Six years ago, to Il
lustrate, labor Toted for Scbmltz against Crocker, i
when fooled by Ruef, who had arranged a dicker
with the man who had been representing for
rrrenty years a corporation .that tad domi-
n ated politics in San Francisco. The labor
ing men voted for Rchmitz against Crocker be
cause of the prejudice and fear engendered by
tUe teamsters' strike. They thought they were
defeating the corporations, when they really
played Into the hsnds of that class. That
had all been arranged by Ruef and the corpora
lions chief agent behind the scenes.
COXVICT RICH AS EXAMPLE
Now, in the last election, the merchant class
1 i viDt ••north of « the slot" In < San Francisco
voted for Schmitz, because he represented, as
-they had found, special interests which : they
<Muld -obtain. , They thought that they could
wU more goods, too, in a ."wide-open town."
Note this: Sohmltz received a bigger percentage
. of the rote north of the slot, \chere the mer
- chant class lives, than south of the slot, where
labor la supposed to be most in evidence. Self
"~ Interest, you see. The result? Poor San Fran
cisco has been robbed almost out of her eye
t*-elh.
What Is the remedy ? Put a few men In I jail ?
Pat. a few ignorant^upervisors In JaU — though
some «f them are intelligent? Why, the same
hrend of Supervisors would be made, faster than
vie could put them in jail — certainly faster if
i my friend. Henry Aeh, were defending them.
' \
It is easy to convict a poor man If yon have
•t the evidence, but hard to convict a' rich Tnan
,or one with large political influence. Bnt the
\u25a0J rich man must.be convicted' if the necessary
j good is wrought. People # wuo see rich and Uis
[ Jioneet men honored and entertained by what is
i considered best In society, naturally become dis
i satisfied with an honest course. They com
promise finally with their conscience* and'be
come partly corrupt. Then is needed the spec
tacle of a rich, prominent, powerful man con
victed, ao that there shall be a deterrent lnflu
euce exerted ppon the tendency to corruption.
The purpose of punishment is supposed to be
twofold — to reform the criminal and deter others
from crime. . Kow. we know that reform of
" «Tiralnal«f is an Iridescent dream. Prison life
does not maie a man better, although It m&y i
make him sadder and -wiser. It Is the deterrent
Influence that la valuable.
* WE WILL STAXD TIIE TEST
Suppose Abe Ruef were put Into the peniten
tiary. At least then his successor, wio is trying
on Ruef*« shoes, would be more careful. He
would take fewer men into bis confidence and !
bribe fewer men.
Sorb a conviction, of him and other rich men,
would put the fear, of exposure into the hearts :
of others — such fear as now : fills the breast of
every wealthy man \u25a0In San Francisco who has
t>een concerned In the corrupting cf \u25a0 the city
government, the fear that makes a man dread
the loss of the world's 'good opinion for himself
and his family. And that fear of. exposure now
agitate* e!l the wealthy:' men I "have referred
to, and will not be removed, at least until Mr.
£preckels and Mr.' Burns • and myself have re
. tired from the present scene of activities In San
f rnnclsco. ' \, \u25a0•'\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0'\u25a0 :-\u25a0,"* \u25a0
Lastly, learn to .Inquire \u25a0 Into' the . causes of
eorrnption, ;. co that . you ' can ; fight intelligently.
Remember that the people of , San Francisco are
' bo. worse than. those of other, cities. Remember
tbat conditions bring ' about . such corruption as
we hare probed into. .' The . conditions will not
be changed until corporations and . individuals
•re unable to get special " privileges from gov
ernments. As . long" as .that /incentive ; exists
there will be • attempts to corrupt officials. • to j
train these unfair and \u25a0 wrong : advantages." \u25a0 Per
.-j haps tinman* nature win hare, to ' be \u25a0 changed to
