The Sunday Call;
Strike Conference Between Labor Men and Calhoun Comes to Naught
Boost of Harriman Costs Devol the Quartermaster Generalship
Aims to Control Republican
Convention and Name
the Mayor ,\
Scheme Is to Have Repre
sentation Based on Vote
. Before the Fire
Vigorous Opposition, Led by
Ryan, to Be Made in
By George A.. Van Smith
W. F. Henin, master politician
of the Harriman coast machine,
will endeavor to control the nomi
nation of the republican candidate
for mayor of San Francisco by
means of colonized delegates from
the burned districts. Incidentally
surface signs are that Herrin's
endeavors .will be crowned with
flattering success.
In the interest of fair play the
bricks "and -citoites **oFrSie^lo * dis
tricts burned wholly or in- part
are to be represented by 51 dele
gates in a convention of 143 dele
gates, charged with the nomina
tion of the republican municipal
The edict has gone forth. The
republican apportionment ' Is to be
made \u25a0pn the basis of one delegate for,
, <?a'ch 200 votes polled by Partridge two
years ago Instead of on any computa
tion of the votes polled for Gillett last
. .
:. It looks queer at first blush, but as
symes the dignity of a real political
philanthropy when It Is explained as a
jncyement In the Interest of the rank
a-nd file of the party. This charity is
"to be perpetrated at a meeting of the
republican city and county committee
bn v next Monday night, at Jefferson
Square hall. By way of expressing
their appreciation of what Is to be done
for them, the rank and file republicans
"will enter vigorous protest through
.their regularly and self-constituted
champions on the committee roster.
The pronouncement of the late" Eu
gene E. Schroitz, whose number has not
/yet been assigned him, smacks not half
so deliciously of subtle humor as do«M
the republican machine's solicitude .f or
•the downtrodden, common garden va
riety rank and file of the grand old par
' ty. Just to Insure the men with the
\u25a0 -votes a fair run for their , money the
machine proposes to relieve them of
Any worry about selecting the munici
pal ticket.
'. By close adherence to the machine
, program ths nominations can be very
-comfortably made by carefully selected
.delegates representing 10.200 votes that
do not exist In the burned districts, and
'later on the republican with the ballot
-.'will be called upon to do nothing mor«
"than ratify the good work.
• " There will be a fight when the com
mittee meets on Monday. The Inside
organization wiU probably win. The
.opposition is not prepared to show the
contrary by, anything like conclusive
evidence, but Its leaders insist that if
they are defeated they will drive 'the
IlerrJn machine into' the open, where
• it V.-IU be a spectacle most unpleasing.
Chairman W. H. Davis of the central
• .committee claims that if the republi
cans of San Francisco are to have fair,
play they must have a delegate conven
tion of 143 members, 68 of whom must
come from the burned districts. The op
" position, led by Daniel A. Ryan,. lnsists
that if all the republicans of San Fran
cisco are to have fair play the correct
apportionment of 1 for 200 votes would
/result in a convention strength of^63,^
with a total of 17 from the burned dis
There is a difference that only, the
philanthropic character of the machine
program could make tenable. In the
interest of the downtrodden rank and
file republican, the machine" apportion-"
ment provides for 11 delegates from
the forty-second district, which 'last
fall polled the splendid .total, of £52
votes of ail colors, parties and . kinds.

Union Leaders Propose
Arbitration, but Company
Makes Positive Refusal
Committee Admits Walkout Was Wrong-
but Says Error Shall Not Be Used :
to Crush Organized- Labor
/: All hope of ending the. car strike was abandoned by the ways
and- means •; committee of the city's unions yesterday after it harl
held a second v conference with President Calhoun of the Unired
Railroads. The members of the committee pleaded for, concessions,
but they pleaded to a deaf ear and became convinced that their
effort was entirely hopeless.
Chairman P. H. McCarthy fyade the startling admission that
after -investigating the circumstances leading up to the strike the
committee had : concluded that the strike was .wrong. "It was not
justified," he said : ; frankly.
; Andrew Furuseth, O. A. Tveitmoe, Michael Casey, George H.
Bell and W. P. McCabe, the. other members of the committee, also
admitted that the strike was not just. "But wrongs were com
mitted on. both sides," they pleaded. "We have come to right
them." - • .
Their proposition, which was the result of three days' work,
was submitted to Calhoun, Hibbs and Thomwell Mullally of the
railroad company. ' It contained three stipulations, each one - of
which \yas turned .down by Calhoun. First, the members of the
committee asked that alHthe union men be put back to work on the"
cars; second, that^the question of hours and wages be submitted
t6j arbitration; third, that the carmen's union be recognized.
> -To the first proposal Calhoun answered in effect that he would
put union men to work if they, applied individually at the office of
his ~ company"; andi if he needed men. He'refused to discharge any of
his present employes/ iTo' the' second he" repjied tjiat the questions
at\ issue \h ad once \u25a0.been; submitted to arbitration and- that he could
see no reason for any arbitration. To. the third his answer was that
he would^neycr-agam deal with the carmen's union or sign agree;
The labor- leaders. urged that Calhoun could not, afford to "wash
His hands of ;the union." The situation is too grave," they argued.
"For the benefit of 'yourself, your company and the city in general
you listen to us."
Endless trouble and business failures were suggested. Vio^
lence at the hands of men that could not be controlled was ment
ioned, arid finally the duty that Calhoun owed to the city was
It was all in vain. Calhoun would not yield. IPS!
"I -will 'never recede from, my present position," the president
said. ;'"I never courted a fight- in my life and I never have run
away. This fight isrnbt of my making; you started it, arid you
alone 'will be responsible for. the result." . L
\u25a0f "Then you will have a fight With organized labor — a fight to a
finish," said McCarthy. H3H
"You gentlemen admit that the car strike should not have
been -called. Your position in sustaining it will be untenable," re
plied Calhoun. /'lf it were wrong to call the strike it; is wrong
to support it. Your duty is to repudiate the action of the officials
