Ryanites Plainly Show Their Hand in Fight Against Latigdoh: and Champion^ cGowaii driven home with the political boot of tierrin. but none of them ever hurt nard enough to drive Daly out of the service. He always went back for more. . Dominie J. Beban, the other member of Ryan's staff .of reformers who has shown his hand against Langdon, was a protege of the late Abe Ruef. It was Ruef who put- him In Sheriff O'Nell's office and in the California legislature as the assemblyman from the forty third district. When the last -whistle blew In March Beban returned to the sheriff's office and fell heir soon to the pleasant duty of attending to the com fort of his chiei s star boarder and his own warm personal friend, Eugene E. Schmitz. Ryan adopted the primary ticket on which Beban's name appeared and Schmitz' private deputy became a delegate to the Ryan convention. PERPETRATE TRICK OX BEBAX The republicans of the thirty-third ' district perpetrated a mean trick on Beban by instructing their delegation ' for Taylor. The delicacy of Beban's 'position was recognized by the Ryan-, ites and he was allowed to vote with the minority 'for Taylor. His merits, however, were not lost on Ryan and Beban was promptly appointed Ryan's committeeman from the forty-third district- Since Hearst, Dargle and the other : champions of graft have got out into the open for Ryan there has been little or no attempt to conceal the hostility of the Ryanites for Langdon. In their zeal to keep their pact with the in ttrepts l>€hind their candidate for . mayor, they are hunting Langdon in the open where they may and stalking with the Herrin, Calhoun and Hearst gumshoe brigade where thgy dare not show bared knives. The sinews of war* flow naturally enough Into the McCarthy campaign, which is not In fact a McCarthy cam-" paign. but a campaign to beat Lang don. The charges that McCarthy and j fc'chmitx conspired to bring about the carmen's strike for the purpose of de feating th<> graft prosecution have been only feebly denied by any of the par ties against whom the accusations wi>re made by bona fide labor leaders. There Is no roem for Ryan's denial of the character of the support he is re- I eelrtng under the orders of the bribe J giving interests, nor can he explain j away the fact that every medium of | publicity now supporting him has vio lently opposed District Attorney Lang don. RVAST BOOM LIES FLAT The Ryan-Hearst-Dargle-McCarthy pamphlet coalition is transparent enough when the work of Ryan's lieu tenant is examined. The selection of the men who for the most part com pose his committee were an enigma when the selections were announced. The riddle was solved by the formal adoption of Ryan by the champion of graft and anarchy. The boom for Ryan which was to succeed the entrance of Hearst, Dargle and the McCarthy pamphleteers at the order of their employers has not de veloped. The Ryan boom lies flat, as if punctured by the shot that killed McKinley. Republicans and labor men, no longer deceived as to the interests A behind Ryan and McCarthy, are flock ing In ever increasing numbers to Taylor. Republicans are disgusted at and ashamed of the fact that the hand that is patting Ryan is red with the Mood of McKinley, and that the purses opened for his campaign were opened for the prostitution of San Francisco's government and are opened again to prevent the prosecution of the higher criminals. They went to the primary polls^ thinking that their votes were being recorded against corrupt cor porate domination of their party. They have discovered their mistake. They realize that a vote for Ryan is a vote for the bribe givers — a vote for a potential Czolgosz. QUIT COU.VTY JAIt. TICKET The stampede of union labor men from the county jail ticket, headed by McCarthy and McGowan, is almost as marked as Is the exodus from the Ryan cunp. They know how the ticket labeled with the name of their party \u25a0was put up at the county jail by Cal houn, through his friend J Schmitz, on that memorable Sunday night,. when ON'eil, Nelson, Mulcrevy, 80110 and Tom Finn eat down at table with O'Ncll's star boarder, Schmitz, to cut up the pie. The nominations for mayor, district attorney and supervisors were put back on the sideboard upon Kchmitz* announcement that his diges tion of those dishes would not require the assistance of his colleagues. O'Neil *a* at the right of the guest of honor and Mulcrevy at . his\ left. Finn had the foot of the table. The nomination of O'Neil was first decided upon by Schmitz as a debt of hospitality- Mul crevy and Nelson got their slices In turn. O'Neil presented the program to t McCarthy next day. McCarthy ac cepted It as far as it went, but wanted the mayoralty nomination settled at once and hurried out to the Jail. He was insistent upon the . nomination of himself. Schmitz consented, and the others ratified the decision separately. When Herrin, with Calhoun and the antf graft prosecution interests, decided 3 upon McGowan as the man '/ to beat Langdon, their friend Schmitz came No Branch Stores. No Agents.

They know .that if McGowan, the friend and good serv ant of Herrin and the streetcar inter ests, is elected the graft prosecution is at an end. " They also -know how the name of McGowan was put on the slate which they have come to call the "county jail ticket." Preparing for the Monster . Mass Meeting Saturday Night Good Government and Democratic Committees Arrange for Overflow The Good Government league and democratic committees are completing arrangements for the monster mass meeting to be held Saturday night at Dreamland rink. Thanks to the experience gained at * _ _ : ——.j. the tremendous " ratification meeting with which their campaign was opened at Dreamland, the joint committee will make ample preparation for handling the great overflow crowd. At the rati fication meeting, \ when the big rink was packed to the limit of its capacity, the police closed the doors, and fully < 5,000 persons were turned away. Many' of them held an improvised overflow meeting in Hamilton square, buthun dreds went away disappointed: This will not occur on Saturday night When the seating and standing room in the rink has been exhausted the doors will not be closed, but the big corps of ushers will be employed to ' direct those unable to gain admittance to the overflow meeting, for which ample provisions have been made. Dr. Taylor will appear at the overflow meeting, and all those unable to get Into the rink will have an opportunity to hear both the mayor and .District Attorney Langdon. The committee is endeavoring to se cure Mackenzie Gordon. *If Gordon cannot reach San Francisco in time for. the meeting some other vocalist of distinction* will be secured. NONUNION PUBLICATION SUPPORTED BY M'GARTHY Members of Printing Craft Incensed by Eulogy of Eastern Paper :f. Members of the printing craft and other union labor men are incensed over the certificate of good character given the Saturday Evening Post of Philadelphia by P. H. McCarthy, who quotes from an article, printed in that Journal in an attempt to disprove that San Francisco needs to borrow- money from the east. The Saturday Evening Post and all the publications of the Curtis'publish ing company, Philadelphia, are on the unfair list and are produced under non union conditions, but" have been given clean bills by McCarthy in the speeches he has made appealing for the votes of union men. The members of the print ing crafts are Indignant. The Labor. Clarion, the official or gan of organized labor in San Fran cisco, gave considerable space to N , a reminder to union labor people that certain publications were produced un der nonunion conditions. Under display type heading it said on October 18: "Trade unionists and their friends should remember that the publications contained In the fiollowing list are pro duced under nonunion conditions, the shorter workday being refused their union printers." • ' • • Then came a. list of unfair publica tions which included the following par agraph: "The. Saturday Evening' Post and Ladies' Home Journal, the product of the Curtis publishing company, Phil adelphia." '. • According to McCarthy's ." official pamphlet, quoting . McCarthy's speech at Walton's pavilion, delivered October 20, McCarthy said: ' . , "I hold here In my hand the last is sue of that -well known and highly re spected journal of the east, the Phila delphia Evening Post, and as to the accuracy and reliability of the asser tions contained therein I have no doubt that even the Infamous liar, Mike de Young, or his millionaire accomplice, Spreckels, will not dare for an instant to raise a question." . The printers are not so enthusiastic about the Philadelphia: publication as McCarthy said. They strenuously ob ject to his advocacy of : a Journal that is produced under nonunion -condi tions. Thousands of Letters From C , Registrar to Him More than 4,000 sample ballots ad dressed to voters, registered from ;the districts south of , Market, street have been returned to the registrar by the postofflce department, unable to find the addressees at the residences shown on the ; register.

RYAN FAILS TO WARM HIS THREE AUDIENCES Both Oregon Dock and B'nai B'rith Audiences Are Respectfully Cold Ryan addressed three' political gath erings yesterday and last night. He appeared ; first at the Oregon dock at the foot of Spear street |at noon. His first evening, address was made -at B'nai B'rith hall, 408 Van Ness,. where a good sized crowd received him. His evening's work came to a " close after he had addressed a big. assemblage' of the voters of the thirty-ninth district at Richmond hall, Fourth avenue and Clement street. The enthusiasm which has marked the gatherings of the last, few, days was conspicuous by "its "absence at the Van Ness avenue meeting. The hall was well filled, but the crowd did not warm up to the young republican standard bearer as. his followers, had hoped. He delivered a very earnest address, assuring hrs listeners that he stood for no class nor no boss, but for the masses alone. - Once again Ryan told how he and his fellow workers had driven the Southern Pacific, from the ranks of the repub lican-party and how he- was befriended by the republican press till his "candi dacy for . mayor was announced." r He accused the republican press of asking .him. to do certain things 'that he "re fused and added that from that time on the same press began to attack him. Ryan concluded his speech by saying: "The great issue is the bringing to gether of capital and labor. I think I am the man to. do tWs. Labor : ls not antagonistic to me and capital does not fear me. These are healthy signs and point to a sure victory. I promise you a business administration and' l promise to give you a chief of police who is a policeman-— one eligible ; and competent to run this great - department of C the city properly. Let us avoid class war fare and &»t together as we did on that memorable morning of April 18, last year. Let iis labor for the common good, which is our good." \u25a0 -' :. _ Among the other . speakers , jwere Thomas. F. Bagan, : Edgar PeixottO.AM. C. Randolph, John/Gilson, James,L.'Oli ver, George A. Turner, J. P^Frazer, A. G. Frank, Dr. R. E.' Hartley and Joseph L. Taaffe. Some. 150 of the workmen of - the water front district listened to Ryan's address a£ the , Oregon dock at noon. There was ' little or no enthusiasm, though the. speaker was treated cour teously. He again 'grilled the republi can press for its nqnsupport and told of his endeavors, to bring capital and labor together. He told of his early life and struggles in this city and as6uredlhis listeners that if elected he would give them the cleanest and most honest ad ministration the city has' ever known. Ryan was tendered~a more flattering reception by over 500 men and women in Richmond hall * last evening, when he and several other candidates on the republican ticket spoke. -District; At torney Langdon.was also a speaker arid received hisses as well. as applause.. He "accused those who hissed •in the - hall of being hirelings of the United Rail roads and that they were trying to dis turb the meeting because of the reward Calhoun had offered^ them. •. Ryan was applauded when he said that he had not been ' indorsed -by Spreckels, De Young, McNab and other grasping \u25a0 millionaires, . but: that : he had been Indorsed by the great mass of people, as was shown by, his" havlrig been regularly chosen at " the conven tion/, He" told- of -the -efforts of the grafters to gain control' of, the'eity . and' he said that j Dr. Taylor, was simply the means |by which these ' grafters hoped to regain their control. ; v . Thomas F. \ Eagan,:: the -well ; known labor organizer,^' denounced McCarthy and- praised \u25a0 Ryaiyas. did A? - D. Porter of the iron worker*!';, and ship ; builders' union.

At Steimke hall and Garibaldi hall he was greeted by crowds of citizens so closely packed together | that) the speakers had great difficulty in reaching the plat form." Each i reception", was an "ovation. Men shouted : and waved their, hats as they bade the; mayor welcome, and his plea . for decency In- municipal govern ment'was interrupted again and again with applause. Similar, greetings were accorded to District Attorney Langdon, Who spoke briefly but to the point, tell ing '-his -/audiences/- that on the_ result of the election depended the important question, whether the prosecution of corruptlonists should go on or be dis continued. '- \ i; ", . v \u25a0 Residents lof » North Beach, once a Ruef stronghold, packed Garabaldl hall to the doors and filled the stairway leading: to the street. In the audience were many j Italians, and' they demon strated by their "cheers that they were with the cause of good government. Among the thousand or more persons present were hundreds of worklngmeh, wearing -Taylor buttons. Perhaps a score, of ; the" auditors ; had: McCarthy buttons Yon their coats," These men listened Intently,| and some >of_ them joined In i the cheering that followed the mayor's address.

"Either means that Patrick Calhoun will go free," bel lowed McCarthy. ."But if McGowan and myself- are elected everything in the limit of the law will "be don© to con vict him." said that the present ad ministration was composed of dishon est officials, and for tWs reason "men, women and children are. being slaugh tered ;on the streets."

The tremendous sacrifice sale under- taken by Ellers Music Company is unique In many respects. Never before has such a superb stock of pianos been put on sale In San Francisco. Never before has the very life been so taken out of piano prices as now, and never before have such thoroughly reasonable terms of payment been offered the ptrblic. . - Had our new "building on Market street been finished according to agree- ment these pianos would have been sold by us at thoroughly reasonable prices, but rather than leave them in the warehouse or subject so valuable a stock to imminent flre dangers we have decided to turn 162,000 of stock into money at once and $41,000 Is all we ex- pect to realize on them.
