Hope Remains of Fusion Ticket
With Taylor at Its Head
j out Republicans and Democrats Proceed
to Complete Separate N ominations
George A. Van Smith
Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor is now assured of at least two
nominations- and District Attorney William H. Langdon's name will
appear three times on each official ballot. Taylor and Langdon will
both -be nominated by the democrats when their convention ; is re
assembled on Wednesday or Thursday night, and the Good Govern
ment league will have the petitions requisite to the independent
nomination of the, mayor and district attorney ready, for filing on or
before next Thursday. Langdon received the republicamnomination
last Tuesday. • :-
The republican convention will meet Tnesdiav to eorrmletel its
ticket, if In the meantime a epecJa:«s
committee charged with the selection
of supervisorial candidates has com
pleted Its elate.
If the democrats complete their su
pervisorial selections prior to next
Wednesday thtir convention may bo
called for that night. The democratic
program provides for the nomination
of a bona fide nonpartlsan ticket. The
democratic leaders Insist that Taylor is
not a democrat in the s.ense of being
a party man and are prepared to prove
that Langdon is not a son of Jefferson
nor yet Jackson.
Assessor Dodge will draw a renoml
nation and Larry Dolan will be named
for sheriff. Aside from these strictly
organization nominations, the demo
cratic leaders say their ticket will be
a fine exhibition of civic virtue and
partisan unselfishness. The democratic
supervisorial ticket' is to consist of
nine democrats and nine republicans.
Many democrats and not a few re
publicans still believe that there may
be a democratic-republican fusion, and
should their hopes be realized, the re
publicans would be permitted to name
all the' candidates except for mayor,
sheriff and assessor end half of the
supervisors. This arrangement would
give the republicans the nominations
for county clerk, auditor, treasurer,
city attorney, public administrator, re
corder, coroner, two police Judges and
nine supervisors. The nomination of
district attorney would not be charged
as a partisan consideration against
either of the fusing parties. Such an
arrangement would, of course, involve,
the withdrawal, of Ryan, but even in
; that event the* concessions it is al
leged the democrats are willing to
make for an insurance of good gov
ernment are probably exaggerated.
Chairman Thomas W. Hlckey of the'
democratic committee wants "Billy"
Hynes elected public ""administrator,
because J\e wants the attorneyship, and
i Gavin McNab has a very warm inter
est in the incumbent police judges,
Cabanlss and Weller.
; If either republican or democratic
'leaders still entertain v any hope of fu
sion on a ticket headed by Taylor,
rotting of the kind is indicated by
their preparations for the next ses
sions of their conventions. '
The republicans expect to have their
committee on supervisorial nomina
tions at work some time today, and
Chairman Hickey announced yesterday
the appointment of the following com-
I niittees to handle the further business

McCarthy Says He Will Gain
Votes Through Eagan's Bolt
Members of tbe "Big Six" Are
Completing Labor Ticket
P. H. McCarthy, union labor candi
date for mayor, takes a rosy view of
the political situation. "When asked
yesterday what he thought of the bolt
led by Thomas F. Eagan he -said:
"Nothing could .suit me better. Re
ports that were formerly viewed with
suspicion may now be given credence.
The people will form their own opin
ion as to why Eagan vrent out of the
convention and what he expects to
get for it. "Within the last week he
has denounced both of the old parties.
His defection will mean a clear gain
of from I.SOO to 2,000 votes In my
favor*. There are some people about
whom I would feel uneasy if they were
not against me. I hope the newspapers
will publish the name of every man
who bolts-the ticket. Traitors cannot
hurt the cause, and I am as sure of
being elected by from 10,000 to 14,000
votes as I am that I am sitting here
now."
Members of the "Big Six" are de
voting their attention to the work of
completing the labor ticket. John E.
McDougald is willing to - accept the
nomination for treasurer, . which office
he held for two terms prior to the
Schmitz tidal wave of 1905. He has
never beaa a Schmitz man, but the
powers now In control of the labor
party ar* not. averse to" turning down
Charles A- Bantel, the present treas
urer, providing McDonsraid will agree
not to accept ai.y other nomination.
This condition Is made , with a view of
heading oft any plan of the repubW :
cans to strengthen Ryan by placing
McDougrald on their ticket.
Tax Collector J. F. Ntchols. like
Bantel. is on the edge of the precipice
locking down. From present-indica
tions the man who will shove him over
is Joseph I. Twohijr. a civil service
deputy ia Nichols* office. . Public Ad
ministrator Jcsepk \A. Stulz . seems
destined to walk the plank, but the
powers have not yet agreed on his
successor- . A uditor S. Vf. Hcrton, al
though meeting: with opposition, ap
paiently.has sufficient influence behind
him to assure his renoraination. As
semblyman Samuel T. Kohlman, wno
wanted the last % legislature to declare
itself on the Japanese question,, re
gardless of s/l vice from Washington,
is still Irt the fight for auditor and
says h« will stay to a finish.. Another
candidate for the same office is Ed. L.
Head, for 27 years cashier \u0084of .the
Spring Valley company bv:t now en
gaged in the title insurance business.
Head's candidacy, however, has not
Seriously impressed the. "Gig Slz." •
Coroner Walsh Is meeting with ; no
opposition in his desire for a renomiria
tlon. For ; police judges the probable
choices are ,* Judge Cabaniss and Joe
Tatffe. Cabaniss is satisfactory, to all
factions. Taaffee. who Is also after a
republican' nomination.' has; more than
one member of the - "Big Six" pulling
for him. 4HOQPHHftBHBBBMBBMI
For, assessor J. "'-Harry Scott, at'"pres
ent, a member , of the state , board of
equalization, \is the most * likely candi
date, although. School' Director, Law
rence F. Walsh has: been' mentioned for
the place. Scott's friends ' predict Hhat
he will be given -both : the labor and re
publican nominations., lf the plans' now
under way are "carried out Scott r will
first be named , by- the labor conven
tion. Then .it will ' be : up to" his re
publican friends to bring • about -; an
THE sSAy. FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, '."SEPTEMBER... 28, ,1907.
' indorsement of his candidacy by their
party.
The list of possible candidates for
supervisor is a long one and . It 'will
take the powers a day or two to weed
It out. One of the latest probabilities
Is Eugene Fitzgerald, cashier of a big
dry goods store and president , of tha
South of Market: Improvement asso
ciation. Unless the cut is shifted tho
labor party's ticket for supervisors will
be made up of eight businessmen and
10 members of unions. Aside from
Supervisor J. J. O'Neill, whose re
nomination is assured, the following is
an incomplete list of the possibilities:
J. "W. Prendergast, attorney; George S.
Burnett, hotel keeper; H. JCeuhaus.
tailor; Frank Scully, undertaker; B. B.
Rosenthal. upholsterer; W- A. Cole, car
penter; Bert Lewis, asbestos -worker;
J. O. "Walsh, former president of the
labor council; W". P. McCabe, secretary
of the labor council; J; W. Kenney,
financial secretary of the labor council;
\V. A. Best, a cement worker and presi
dent of an improvement association;
Charles A. Nelson; a carpenter and
president of the Bay View Improve
ment club; B. F. Gould, carman/ and
T. P. Healy. . •
According to the plans of the "Big
Six" only candidates for Judicial posi
tions will be permitted to, accept nomi
nations from any other party. -
The powers have not . yet definitely
decided on the labor candidate, for dis :
trlct attorney, but unlegs there is a
sudden change of opinion their choice*
will be Frank McGowan. He stands
ready to accept, and, the men "who have
the nomination to bestow think he is
the strongest dt the several aspirants
whose names have been to
their attention. Assemblyman Nathan
C. Coghlan and Frank J. Murphy are
willing to make the race, but have not
been able to make any impression on
the leaders of the inner circle. "
TWO DAYS TO REGISTER
The total registration up to and in
cluding last Thursday was 70.520. It
was estimated that the entire number
of qualified voters up to next Monday
night, when registration for the next
election closes, will amount to be
tween 74,000 and 75,000.
A* instancing the political affiliations
of. 1,128 citizens who registered last
"Wednesday 522 were republicans, 276
union labor, 159 democrats, 19 socialists
and 202 declined to state their party
ticket.
The registrar's ., offlce In McAllister
6treet opposite Hyde will be kept open
today and Monday until 12 o'clock
midnight After that any voter who
registers will not be enabled to vote
at the November election. It is ex
pected ; that 4,000 will register in the
I two days mentioned. . ."",

In' the Southern Pacific changes of j
trains; > v to . take place in a f evr days,
practically another through train to
Los TAngeles from San Francisco is put
on via the San : Joaquin valley. '\u25a0;; Trains
83 ; and 84; : running between Bakersfleld
and ; San Francisco, will be changed so
as: to connect with the new trains be
tween ; Bakersfield and '. Los • Angeles.
The'route of S3 andiß4 will be changed
to run 'through Portervllle an<s Visalla,
giving the people of those places direct
service to and from Los Angeles, and
Visallaf additional ' service to and from
San • Francisco. -'Hanford will be given
also additional service .as a result of f
the change. For th». first time in the '
I history; of Porterville it will be given
malhjljne service. At : Exeter trains will

"There Is considerable curiosity among
railroadmen when the new rule regard
tng diversions will be made uniform, all
over ; the United States. \u25a0 At present -It
is . effective west of Trinidad, and will
be enforced by the Southern Pacif.c,
Union Pacific Colorado Midland. San
ta ,Fe, - El Paso end Southwestern
and \ Rio Grande, No doubt ex
ists that .the rule will' be adopted
by • g the : transcontinental ! lines, and
is due to the action of the eastern
lines.-: It- is understood ; that all the
associations, Transcontinental, .Central
freight tramc, Souiheastern and -th«
Trans-Missouri, have intimated that
they are 'desirous of indorsing the
measure. There is a great deal of
detail -in connection with , this, i anJ
some difficulty may arise as to collect-
Ing . the diversions. The ;\u25a0 railf oads a.re
unanimous in their, opinion that thn
charges to which they have been sub
jected must be borne In future by the
shipper. , They y claim mat lumbermen
and beanmen make the most diver-
Bions and that they never bill their
cars where they intend their shipment

LOS GATOS CHURCH HAD

Pastor Fraser Explains Why Man Was
Ousted From Sunday School •
Before Trouble Occurred
' Eev. F. L. Fraser, pastor of the Pres
byterian church of Los Gatos, naß been \u25a0
muchannoyed by the published.state
ments conecting his church with W. G. i
Fourtney, who has left .Los Gatos on
account of a charge that he attempted,
to assault an 11 year old girL In a let- i
ter to The Call Rev. Mr.^Fraser says:
;"Fourtney, was not ' in the Sunday
school or connected with the Presby
terian church for some time before the
trouble he got Into. For a time he was
a teacher In ; the : Sunday * school, but as
he did not attend church services his
influence was considered bad, and so
he -was requested by me to withdraw
from all work in . the Presbyterian
church. This withdrawal took place
before the trouble" he got Into and be
fore there was anything charged
against his character. If a'man 'falls'
while in good standing in a church,; the
case is different. The church : then suf
fers. But in the case of Fourtney the
church, by an official action of the ses
sion, removed him from the Sunday
school and dropped him from member
ship in the church before he committed
the offense charged." j
