MAY BE FORGED TO CLOSE HOME FOR INCURABLES King's Daughters', Circle Is I Without Funds to Carry- on Its Work SERIES OF REVERSES Refused Aid Because Insti tution Is Not Purely Charitable BIG BEQUEST LOST Organization Now Appeals to the Entire Order \u25a0 in This State Refused aid by- tyro organizations be cause Its Tvork was not purely charit able and assailed on all sides by re verie* Trhlcb strode hard and often after the (Ire. the King's Daughters' circle, vrbfch maintain* the San Fran cisco home for Incurables, will appeal to tbi- cadre order In the state to tare a shelter for the 34 aged folk who are swatting the last call in the Institution at 173 C Golden Gate avenue. These crippled, childish and hope lessly sick dependents of the home can not go to any other institution In the city. Hospitals are closed to them be cause they are incurable. The doors of public charity houses likewise are shut, as they are not destitute. Be sides, they have paid the King's Daugh ters* circle for care during their re maining days. And so. facing this situation, with funds almost complete ly exhausted, the managers of the home have transferred to their state officers the task of standing between their helpless charges and the street. decide: cpo>' ax 'appeal Mrs. M. S. Low, president :of the home circle, summoned' Mrs. Matilda Brown, the state secretary, to. a con ference at her home in McAllister street yesterday, ilrs. Jennie Coop, the state treasurer, also came over from Oakland for the meeting, and with Mrs. E. H. Cofer, vice president of the board of managers, the three discussed the problem of preventing the extinction of the institution. They decided finally that an appeal directed to all the King's Daughters in Cali fornia was the only means of keeping tho home in existence. The order will hold a convention across the bay two weeks hence, and then the predicament f Z the institution will be presented to ' she delegates. For six months the board of- managers of the home has been in difficulties. The fire In April. 1906, destroyed the building in which the circle's aged <-]«?pendents were housed in Francisco street. This structure had been the \u25a0 lomicile of the Scandinavian old peo ple's home. The King's Daughters pro cured it for their incurables virtually Tiee of charge, but the conflagration came and involved it in the general ruin. That was the first disaster. Swiftly following came one for which King's Daughters of outside* circles are blamed. PHUjAATHROPY DISCOURAGED Misses Helen and lsabelle Cowcll, daughters of the wealthy cement mer chant, had been generous patronesses of the home. In memory of their' sis ter. Miss Sarah Co well, who had been an ardent \u25a0worker In the order, they f offered to build a $100,000 home for the patients In the institution. Land In Richmond was purchased. Plans vrerv completed and Miss lsabelle Cow ell went to Portland to select a i par ticular kind of ornamental brick which £he fancied. Just &t this period several daughters, whom th* ofScers of the home call \u25a0'busybodles/' Interfered. They wanted to know why persons such as the Cowells, who were not members, of the order, were permitted so much voice In the management of the home's af fairs. That ended It. The Misses Cowell went to Europe. They are over there yet and the offer to build the handsome and costly etructure lias been with drawn. LOSE A |C 5,000 BEQUEST Then came another blow. After a legal battle lasting s eeveral years the superior court decided two months ago that the home sheltering the Incur ables was hat entitled to a bequest of 125.000 left by Mrs. J. M. Sharp. Mrs. Sharp originally had made the amount J 50,000. Eighteen days before her death she cut this In half, writing her revision . Into the original will. Upon thin technicality, coupled with the fact that the work of the , institution was not wholly charitable, the court de cided against the home. Throughout this year of continual mishaps the managers of the home have been forced to draw on the meager 'unds it had left after, the fire. The circle received only a small part of the insurance on the furnishings of the Francisco street home. When this was used in paying the high rent demanded ! '.^miDuri on Pare 3, Middle Column 3.

The United -Railroads is taklnie 3,000 .to 4,000 horsepower less now than it did before the strike of the carmen was called."— Statement of John A. Britton. John A. Britton, president" of the San Francisco electric company, yesterday i directly, contradicted Thornwell Mul lally,- assistant ;tb Patrick Calhounl .president* of-the United RailroadßV' who had declared before the joint commit-; tee. of the > board ,. of \u25a0 supervisors ; that to insufficient, power service, on Uhe^part of that company was. due the Inefficient serrics; given by the trolley company and that the, staggering aggregate of fatalities reported toVthe^supervisors sprung from' the same source. \u0084 Britton said that -Mullally's statement ; regarding the gas englnes L of ;his com pany was falae. called attention to the two "power houses j that;., the United '\u25a0 Railroads owns and said that the trol ley 7 company. was taking. from 3,000 to ' 4,000 horsepower- less ' than the strike. Mullally's testimony before the su pervisors threw all the onus for .the ; lack of cars upon, the power company I and declared that -as soon as the gas | engines.; of that company were fixed I up/200 more trolley, cars ; would be ! added to the SOO now. in , use, but that i until this source of power .were made i all -.that it -should be the service .would : remain"' lnadequate, as it w?.h impose slble ito get 'more; power from present sources. .. I */ Brititon saj's that, the San. Francisco electric company has *no > plans for the extension of v its \u25a0 plant. ;; Ho was most reticent. and refused, he said, to argue the question . with the United Rail roads through the j medium of a news paper, but lie revealed basis facts re garding the alleged inability, of the j trolley company to: secure more power. L Mullally's statement; that '. the elec i trie .'; company." was: at fault for the \u25a0 Bhortavg"*, as the ; cars :: and men were available and only the power was lack inj?,; was "cast : back In -his teeth " by Britton, said definitely ; that the I United ..; Railroads'; was; -taking less | power -b"y 'as much as 4,000' horsepower than beforeyme strike. 'Calling atten tion to the two power, houses, of the trolley company in', this : connection, Britton seemed to Infer that an in vestigation; of ; conditions there would "reveal the source : of 'the alieged power famine, ' the blame for which . Mullally had'east upon Britten's company. To obviate the - inconvenience and danger of death ': which the public is undergoing: through -lack of cars, : Mul- I lally sees only 'the building of a power plant' costing $2,600,000 and which ! might take a year sto complete. | ; On 4,000 horsepower, according to an r employe of •',. the trolley company,* I from 40 to 50 cars could'f be operated. This would * indicate^ that the present j shortage of . 200 cars, with - wh!ch the j United; Railroads admits -it could; "solve i the \u25a0 traffic ; situation, is due; either to its Inability to purchase the 4^ooo horsepower.; from • the San Francisco electric or the : -\u25a0 inefficiency of ' its own; power : hotwes, to ; which the ; employes jof the \u25a0 trolley, lines . trace the frequent; periods- of 'lack \q2 power on all the lines. \u25a0 ' . *.. \u25a0 | CORNELrUS^MAKES; REPLY;; | Says There Are More Accidents Than : When : Union ;; Men Ran r Cars ' Richard i Cornelius, ,; president ' of the carmen's; union,"'; takes "exception* to? the I statement! issued \u25a0 by i Thorn we] 1 •Mv 1 - i lally of -the - United s Railroads > andliast night issued 1 the following statement, i contradicting what Mullally said : \u25a0*\u25a0\u25a0-\u25a0 \u25a0\u25a0 \u25a0 '.- -.\u25a0.-..-\u25a0.\u25a0-.- .-';-..:.•.-.... ,7~ -..'-.\u25a0..- -.-..;\u25a0 --\u25a0_-:.---; |~* Mr.'i Mallally i it ; quoted' as | saying} that i there Continued [on \ Pasc 2, Column j 8 LuihcrjG: Brown (on: t^ was indicted yesterddx) for subornation of perjury in connection with -the kidnaping of Fremont Older; and J.:F: Conners \u25a0 of the OaltlandsTriburie, who \u25a0 will \u25a0 be called' before 1 the grand jury" to explain/an" accusdti<m:Of;briber\)"agdirist_ a^ Ford: juror. v \ Detective Luther EBipvn Is Indicted for SiibornMion Ml Perjury Chauffeur I Wyman Confesses Man IMucefr Him to; lie in'JKidnapingGase; Uaw for Ptinishmetit of * Perjurers Section \26 >of -the* penaU code: \u25a0/' , Punishment of perjury .Perjury is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison [ hot -less^than one, nor more than fourteen years. ~ ; \u25a0 V Section 127 V of the penal code: v " ; :':: Subornation of perjury.

FRIENDS OF GOOD GOVERNMENT ARE OUT FOR TAYLOR Ryan's Boomers Are Forced to Admit Strength of the Mayor LABOR VOTE IS SPLIT, Many Unionists Are Break ing Away From Their ". Party Ticket against McCarthy Polls Taken in Business Dis trict Show Popularity of Incumbent George A. Van Smith That the candidacy of Edward :Robeson Taylor has the indorse ment and support of a majority of the friends of good government in San Francisco has been made so indisputably apparent that even the most optimistic of the Ryan boomers are forced to admit the mayor's strength? Their admissions are ' painful and made to carry a labored cx ! planatiom The Ryanitcs admit I that if the election were held to jday Hr. Taylor would be elected. ; but they declare this admitted fact is due to the delay in the prosecu tion of the Ryan campaign. They In sist that Dr. Taylor is now at tha limit of his strength and that when Ryan begins _hS whirlwind campaign the Taylor sentiment will die out -and be succeeded by "a popular clamor for Ryan. The Immediate followers of Ryan persist in their assertions that the la bor vote "deflected from .McCarthy will be cast almost solitily for Hyan. Th« most cursory investigation of the atti tude of the union labor men who ar« openly oppysed to McCarthy does not serve to bear out this contention. In stead of being supporters of Kyan a majority of the union labor m«.i who are openly anounctng their intentions of breaking away from the union labor ticket are for Taylor. Prominent union labor men are co-operating with tha Good Government league's campaign committee and a very large percentage of the signers o* the petitions for tbo nomination of Dr. Taylor and his good government ticket were union labor men. There Is. too. a disquieting sisrntfl cance in the fact that P. H. McCarthy, union labor candidate for mayor, has not thought it worth his while to de vote any of his campaign oratory li Ryan or the Ryan ticket. It is one of the strongest evidences that McCarthy does not fear Ryan. From which may be deduced that McCarthy believes th.it the defected union labor vote will b9 cast for Taylor. That there is a large disaffected union labor vote, no one attempts to deny -and the disaffection is based on several grounds. Much .of It Is di rected' at McCarthy personally, bat more of It is caused by an earnest de sire for good government, stable con ditions and resultant full dinner pails. McCarthy's arbitrary rule of the build ins trades council has made enemies for him In his own organization and th« almost continuous warfare between himself and the labor council bids faii to develop a heavy anti-McCarthy vote
