Chairman Hickey Promises
His Party Will Act
; "iDn the Square"
The vote polled for Bell will prob
ably provide the basis for the appor
tionment of delegates to the democratic
convention.'.* \u25a0
H- Fired with' -pure: patriotism and
moved by- the fine chance to make capi
tal . out of t the machine effort to ap
•ptJrtionr t her republican r representation
on /.the mayoralty vote of 1905, the
leaders of- unterrlfled \ democracy are
looking ; for a ; hall. ;*. . ' .
" -If . a suitable meeting place can be
engaged;- the democratic city and coun
ty committee will meet on Monday
night., While the republicans are ex
changing highly colored compliments
over the Herrin program lor colonizing
the control of the republican conven
tion, the \u25a0democrats will hold . a love
feast and poee as real slmon pure in
the .bottle . friends of the lowly citi
zen with a vote. . {isoszsss£&
The democratic committee meeting,
it is said.rWlll be' called for. the pur
pose of campaign -prelimi
naries generally. ; It is announced als>o
with show, of authority that no ap
portionment j program^has been decided
upon,' but that,' of .'course'/ -democracy.
can;be> relied upon to do the square
thing by ~ the" people and , thereby per- ;
petugte its claim to sole Occupancy of ;
the representative •government politi
cal field. , , .
r As claims go, this . is' very pretty.
It also 1 practical. , Democracy . ha 9
nothing to, lose and it hopes to gain
much. .It can afford, to cast. Its bread
upon I the "waters. It can indulge In
philanthrophy .that might be suicidal
,to the '\u25a0\u25a0 very »lmuch ;alive Herrin or
ganization • controlling the republican
party. " : .' V •"\u25a0..'.',." \u25a0 : : .; \u25a0. - :
. -That if ; the. situation, were reversed
the^tactics. of. the opposing band 3 'of
patriots might be similarly reversed,
probably has :no real bearing on the
case. . The democrats can sec' their
duty to the people and can afford to
do' ft. _ . . .
In the matter of living, breathing,
bona fide voters in the burned dis
tricts,,the democrats are about. on a
par with the republicans. An appor
tionment ; based on votes cast last > fall
would give the democrats but one
delegate from each, of six or seven
districts. \u25a0; Like the republican leaders,
some of the democratic wheel horses
are inclined: to believe that there will
be a.few more bona fide votes cast In
those districts this fall. To Insure
something \u25a0 like a. fair . representation
for \u25a0 this unknown quantity, the demo
crats propose to make an arbitrary
apportionment \u25a0of one or two dele
' gates foreach'.of the burned districts,
treating • all alike; and then completing
the delegations^ on a flat pro rata of
the votes i cast for Belli.
, ;Chairman , Thomas" W. Hickey of the
democratic committee' declines to dia
cuss the: horrid schemes of the Herrin
republicans to*, lionize the burned di::-,
trlctsiwithtdeie'g'ates who^wlU compose
one-half :of:: of: the republican convention.
He is not, ; however, averse, to assuring
-the-rpUDlic ; ; that^ttemocracy will be
gullty^of Ino :atti§mptß to"* garrote ;iv
.trusting people/ Neither will it, stab- 1
defenseless electorate ; -irU the back. ' Far
be It' frbni -the: democratic machine to
attempt to pack a " convention with
transient representatives k : of mixed
scenery.Jn the burned districts. Never!
The delegates will, so far. as may be
practicable, ; come from sthose, habitable
portions, of 'the city":; where they may be
choseh'by - the unterrlfled ;and cou
science - free voter. '-• Hickey has heard
tha.t . the "republican machine -. purposes
naming . a ticket through the ; services
of "carefully selected representatives
of I Herrin and down ..town . brick , piles,
but, for7 publication,' he is not.-pre
pared; to believe that? any one would
have the criminal audacity to attempt
to '\u25a0• perpetrate • such a dastardly crime
upon: stricken San . Francisco.
\u25a0 ' Meanwhile -."J -Messrs. Crlmmlns and

sustained' . efforts ?.' to: round up , Jhi
