United Railroads President
Says He Can't Resume
Without Them
The acts of the United Rail
roads and the utterances of its
officials yesterday all pointed
strongly to the conclusion that
President Patrick Calhoun will
present to Governor Gillett im
mediately upon his arrival at
Sacramento a request for military
control in San Francisco as the
only means of assuring a peace
ful resumption of the city's street
car service. Advices from Los
Angeles last night stated that the
Ooverjior^liad abandoned 'bfs--'«con-i
leinplated-trip to San Diego and would
return to the . capital immediately.
Calhoun stated to a ' Call reporter
yesterday that he was absolutely lim
ited in running his cars to two hours
in the day under the present protection
offered by the police.
"I am going^to run my cars to the
full extent that I am given protection,"
he said. "If the police tell me that they
cannot protect the cars until 1 o'clock
In the afternoon I cannot start them
out before that hour. If they tell me
that I cannot have their protection
after 3 o'clock in the afternoon I am
limited to that hour."
• This describes the situation of yes
terday. Under the arrangement with
Uinan the arms have been taken from
the men operating the streetcars. The
United Railroads officials claim It
would be no less than murder to # send
them out without arms and without
the full and adequate protection of the
police against the mobs -which have
rioted in the streets for the last three
days. Police protection for a two hour
trip through the "Western addition,
where the cars are cheered by women,
d&es not go far toward the resumption
of a complete service. President Cal
lioun said his company was absolutely
at the mercy of the police and restrict
ed in running cars to their dictatlon. v
Confronted by this situation the
United Railroads is preparing affida
vits setting forth the inadequacy ''of
the protection offered by Dinan^ These
affidavits wiU cover the action of the
police on Tuesday, when they refused
to arrest men In the crowd who threw
rocks, and the fact that after the men
employed by the company had been
disarmed the police limited the hours
during which they would protect the
cars. ".'.\u25a0*'-'\u25a0:\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0
This showing will be placed before
the governor, who has already an
nounced his intention or ordering out
the troops when he is convinced A that
they are needed without waiting for
the request of the present city admin
istration, and it Is expected that within
a few days there will be state troops
In the city in sufficient numbers to
ufford complete protection * for • more
than two cars on an afternoon excur
sion through the residence district.
GOVERNOR CAST ACT
It was, pointed out by one of the su
perior judges last night that the crimes
which had been committed in the city
this week were not merely offenses
against cy.y ordinances, but that they
were crimes defined by the Penal Code
of the state of California. -The moment
that it becomes' evident to . the state
executive that the laws of California
are being broken and that the- police
are inefficient to cope with the situ-,
ation it is within his; power to order
out the militia without further process/
The governor can intervene in the
present situation exactly as r the attor
ney general can Intervene, in'a suit, in
the courts on his own lnltiatlve_,when
he concludes that the circumstances
warrant it.
