Militiamen Go Into Camp at Big Guns of City's Defenses
Outbreak of^ Republicans
Against Railway Boss
Is Imminent
Servile Committee Expected
to Adopt the Crooked
Decent Element Is Aroused
Over De^p Laid jScheme
to Name Mayor
By George A. Van Smith i
A movement for the reorgani-;
zation of the republican party
will be the immediate result of
a successful consummation of the
Herrin scheme to base the San
Francisco city and county ap
portionment on the Partridge
vote for mayor in 1905.
Daniel A. Ryan, leader of the
opposition to the Herriii coloni
zation scheme, definitely an
nounced yesterday; that in the
event that he and his wing^of ,
the city and county . committee]
were defeated on "Monday night, "they J
would appeal to the.'consciencW^of the;
party. Ryan said: .
"This Is not a question of an inde
. pendent republican movement;, nor^do
•»-c contemplate any schism in the party.'
It is a simple question of honesty- and.
fair dealing with the rank anfi hie of
the party and with the people of San
Francisco generally. The city and
county committee is not the repub
lican party. It may be^ble to vote
the bricks and stones of the burned
district in the convention,' but fortu
nately it. cannot vote them at the
general election; nor do we believe that
the republicans of San Francisco will
permit their nominating convention to
be controlled by the votes of colonized
delegates. If the committee adopts
an apportionment based on the Part
ridge vote, we will make them do It in
tt>e open and compel them to answer
to the voters."
The Ryan wing has but a slim
chance of winning its fight for an
honest apportionment. Ryan may be
able to go into the fight next Monday
nighJ* with a fighting strength of 30
votes out of the 70 or 73 committeemen
who may be expected :to be present;
_With a good working minority the
Ryanites believe that they can appeal
to the honesty of a sufficient number
of committcernen to carry through an
apportionment based on the Gillett
Their hopes may be realized, but the
chances are. strongly against them.
The apportionment on the basis of the
Partridge vote means too much to the
Perrin machine for enap Judgment, and
the committee meeting was probably
not called until the chief engineer* had
grot a high semaphore for clear track.-,
The real value of the proposed ma
chine apportionment is made apparent
by the most cursory comparisons.
Based on one delegate for each 200
votes, or the fraction thereof cast for
Gillett, the Thirtieth district would be
entitled to one vote in the convention.
Based on , a like fraction of the Part
ridgre '. vote, the same district would
have five delegates. But ; comparisons
can be brought down. to date and they
show virtuallj-, "If not' exactly, the
same ratio of discrimination.
The registrar's books show the pres
ent total registration from the /thir
tieth district to be 475._ The thirty
seventh district shows a total regis
tration of 7,097. The machine appor
tionment would give the thirtieth dis
trict . five delegates and the "thirty
seventh 15, or three times as many
delegates for 15 times as many votea.
Assuming that the 478 electors regis
tered In the thirtieth are republicans,
which they' are not, that district would
be entitled to an apportionment" on. the
registration of three {delegates, while
the thirty-seventh would be "entitled
to . nine delegates on the republican
votes actually cast there' last fall.
The proposed machine apportionment
would result In a convention "'* of 143,
with a total of €S votes from the
burned > districts^ If the , Ryanites Tare
defeated, ,* as they probably v will be/

Schmitz, who once earned his "'bread
honestly by his" flddle, " has- now . 't afte'n
back on his Instrument-to secure f peace
of mind.' At the county jail he' sits for.
hours in hi 3. cell playing by-gone, airs
and singing to, the music of the strings.
The guards.! and fellow prisoners listen"
sadly to the plaintiff notes of the violin.
Now; that Judge sDunne hasfreduced the
leaves : , of absence .which Schmltz = has
been enjoying, he^must .rely solely up
on the" fiddle and. the bow to "drive dull
care away.". % . ;
While Schmltz was in. his cell court
ing music yesterday morning Drew was
before Judge ; Dunne. "
"If your honor please," said the at
