Repudiated by the majority of the
republicans whose will he thwarted
when he ordered his job chasing dele
gates to 'nominate him for mayor and
watching even the job chasers taking
their cold feet to the Taylor hearth.
Pyan was a sad political orphan until
earst took out letters of guardian-
Lip. It was a smiling Ryan who faced
* forlorn lieutenants yesterday.
He beamed his delight as he feasted
his eyes on the Examiner's announce
ment of fealty to the candidate whose
nomination It had • denounced as a
"grotesque piece of effrontery." He
called it a peach and his lips smacked
in anticipatory delight — all unmindful
of tho lemonade possibilities of - the
package of fruit that had been tied to
Ryan made no attempt to conceal his
joy over the support of the man whom
republicans execrate as morally re
sponsible for the afisassination of
President McKinley. His adoption by
Ilcarft and the Examiner, Ryan pro
tested, was "po unexpected" — a charm
ing surprise in fact. He" was so grate
ful that he declined to embarrass his
benefactor by making public the terms
under which he became the Instrument
of Hearst's latest a.ttempt ( to seize the
government of San Francisco.
The way Ryan put it Hearst had de
parted from his well defined political
bargaining system to rush to the sup
port of a young 'm/m who was alto
gether good and a republican. Ryan de
clined to explaln^how he would recon
cile the support of a journal of anarchy
with the principles of the republican
party he has attempted to subjugate.
' He refused also to let his mind wander
from the enjoyment of his peach to a
consideration of how he could compel
the few republicans remaining in hi*
camp to submit to fellowship with
Hearst. It 'migTht prove a bitter pill for
th* Ryan camp followers to swallow,
but it looked like candy to Ryan.
And such cheap candy: Tlie sweets
of Hearst support had "been secured.
Ryan said, without a promise on his
part. He did not promise to take pro
gram from Hearst in the event of his
election. Never! Hearst had exam
ined the life of the youngest candidate
end that examination "had convinced
Patriot Hearst that in Partisan Ryan
he had discovered a prototype. To se
cure the backing of Hearst, Ryan said,
he had not . be*n compelled even to
promise that h«* would deliver the com
pact republican party machine he built
to the dodo of the doodle dees. Ryan

Rev: Lyall de Jarnett Is
Vbrtex of Religious
Trustee Who Holds Doors
Is Arrested for
Sheriff Takes Possession of
Sanctuary and Flock
Special by Leased Wire to The Call
\ SANTA CRUZ, Oct. 20.—Af
ter two months of unbrotherly
dissension the factional fight in
the Christian church of this city
flamed out into a row which
nearly developed a muscular va
riety of ' Christianity. The forces
behind the pastor, Rev. Lyall de
Jarnett, and the forces that want
him ousted went to church today
and a struggle ensued for posses
sion of the house of the Lord. Ul
timately the sheriff took posses
sion and the quarrel will : bei set
tled peacefully' in the courts.
Dr. de Jarnett was 'first to arrive at
the church. The doors were locked and
on 'the arrival of reinforcements an at
tempt was made to gain entrance forci
bly. Charles M. Lewis, one, of the trus T
tees and for years: a member Of the
church, apparently had passed the night
there and would not unlock the door.
He is opposed to the preacher. ' The lat
ter, threatened to break down the doo\,
but before it was done a warrant was
served on Lewis for disturbing: the
peace. Sheriff Craf ton warned the ex
cited Christians not to enter the church,
and then he went after Lewis, who sur
rendered himself peacefully, while the
temporarily victorious forces of the
pastor took the church by storm.
Divine services were then held.
Steven Hoke and M. Knepper, trus
tees recently elected by the De Jarnett
faction were also arrested for disturb
ing the peace and the pastor himself
was taken to jail for house breaking;.
All were released on bail.- Chief of Po
lice Armstrong made, the arrests per
sonally. ' ,\u25a0\u25a0> - '
Sunday school services were >held <in
the afternoon on the lawn in .front of
the church by Dr. de Jarnett. Later an
attempt was made; to gain entrance to
the tabernacle- in Garfleld park. --This
city is the center of the . ' Christian
church in the state and the yearly gath
erings are held, liv the tabernacle. \u25a0 Rev.
R. NY Davis, holding" the 'keys for the
state organization, refused to -permit
the local pastor and his flock to enter.
Action will be begun '.tomorrow, in the
courts to compel him to give over the
The quarrel Is the . outgrowth of dif
ferences' as to the pastor's merits as a
religious leader, but has nothing to' do
with his character or morals, which
have not been assailed.! One version of
the difficulty has it- that when it was
found that the members of the church
could not agree on whether the preacher
should be retained or > not a committee
of. delegates to - the annual convention
was* intrusted .with the solution of the'
difficulty and decided that De Jarnett
should serve, the. church until October
14. when his term should cease.. This
agreement was later repudiated by 'a
newboard of trustees.wvho were friend
ly with 'the pastor. The status of the
original agreement is the point of the
dispute, arid will be settled in the courts.
. If De Jarnett can get the tabernacle,
ho say 6he will hold services' there With
such of ; his members as' want to hear
him until -the law whether or
not he is minister of the First Christian
church of Santa Cruz.

International President Is
Closeted With Cornel
ius and Others
Arbitration Reported to Be
Probable Outcome
of His Visit
Desert Cars on Account of
the Shutting Off of
' W. D. Mahon, 'international
president of the amalgamated as
sociation of street railway em
ployes of America, arrived in San
Francisco yesterday, and his
presence here is believed to have
an important bearing upon the
streetcar strike situation in this
, city. -Immediately after his ar
i rival Mahon went ta the St. James
I hotel, where during the afternoon
he was closeted with Richard
Cornelius, 'Andrew' Furuseth,
John Keen and other; members i of
the /general, strike .campaign * com
mittee. If I any; definite. * plans
were arranged they were >kept ; secret.
{ Mahon announced- that shis . program
for today would be a- series of-con
ferences with* strike leaders. He de
clined to say \u25a0whether.: or not" he. would
wait on either Superintendent , Black
of. the' United Railroads or Patrick
Calhoun. ; ' =
Mahon .came, direct to San k Francisco
from New Orleans, where he attended
the annual conference of the organiza
tion of which he is the' president.
Following close upon the- heels of
the donation of $60,000. a month tby the
amalgamated association In New Or
leans for the benefit of the local strik
ing,carmen, Marion's visit here is con
sidered significant. Although Mahon
would not talk for publication , last
night except to say that, he was here
to lookover the local situation. It was
freely rumored in labor circles that
his object was -to terminate the long
drawn out strike. Rumor even; went
so far as to say -that' a meeting be
tween Mahon ; and Superintendent Black
had already been arranged for today.
Mahon and Black; are well known to
each other, having had business deal
ings together in Kansas City and other
eastern points. \u25a0 -,''-,.;
. Labor leaders would not say last
night that any definite scale on which
to base a possible; settlement had .been
decided. upon. . It is hinted thatif any
thing comes of Mahon's visit the settle
ment will be on an arbitration basis. ;,
< That affairs ln : ; the. management; of
the streetcar "system were at a crisis
was evidenced- yesterday by the con
tinued activity, of rthe\ disgruntled car
men .working north ;of \u25a0 street.
Only two or three- crews operated cars
in* Powell, street during the day. Shortly
after/ 9 o'clock '\u25a0 last ! ni gh t one of these
crews' deserted the , car, at' ; Butter
street, refusing to run it Into the barns.
At the ;ferry last night -a half -dozen
men boarded each car as it rounded , the
curve and , gave: instructions to the
crew, that no cars -were to ; be run after
9:30 o^clock; tonight unless the scale^of
33 and 81 cents 7 an hour was granted
in.the meantime. •\u0084\u25a0\u25a0" v
.The decision, tol leave the' cars alone
today and await 'the actual' stopping of
the feeding, of -the men in the barn?,
according v to « the v ;strike leaders, -was
decided upon at a meeting Satiirday
night. All day long, according. to' ! .'these
same" leaders, inspectors^ were sent
among the ? discontented, element 'of \ the

their demands would be granted if the
