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.
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
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
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.
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

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.
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

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

When Good Government ;
Nominee Speaks
Mayor Taylor arousedintense enthu
siasm last, night at two: meetings. 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,

present were hundreds of worklngmeh,
wearing -Taylor buttons. Perhaps a

listened Intently,| and some >of_ them

applause was Jrenewed. \u25a0 When "at" last
the crowd became -quiet the mayor said:
\"Such ; a reception as this makes me

that I take < your applause for^a'iper

P. H. (McCarthy was greeted by large
crowds, in : his tour of. the city yester
day., The labor, candidate for mayor de
livered-his stereotyped speech, which
he has j been repeating J since* the open
ing of his campaign: "The. unspeakable
Biggy," "Rudolph, *' th* handsome,"
"James JD. Phelan.l the glass ;6f fash
lon and the mold of. form," and "MichaeJ
.Henry I 'do Young; whd : would not take
1a; hot-stove if you' were 'looking at
him,"; were the names he continued to
apply to; these men at 'all; his meetings.
; At Duboce hall *an unusually large
and enthusiastic "crowd, greeted tri^
labor candidates | and : when ' McCarthy
arrived he was cheered loudly. He told
the voters that he : was the right man
for.mayor and that; they, should vote
for him because he would see to it that
wages will . be kept up. White the
crowd was enthusiastic, when Frank
McGowan, candidate for district attor
ney,. said that he "would put Rudolph
Spreckels and James D. Phelan in
prison if it v were = necessary, his re
marks , seemed to meet with the dis
approval .of the assemblage. : At -Mur
phy's hall. Ocean View, a good sized
crowd listened to* McCarthy and Mc-
Gowan and other candidates on the
labor ticket.' '•-'; ;:. ;; ; / .
/Even McCarthy's most devoted sup
porters were somewhat abashed by the
rabid? statements | he made last night
at a -largely attended meeting in
Druids' "hall at Hayes and Laguna
streets. * The union labor standard
bearer declared- 'that the election of
either, Taylor and 'Langdon or Ryan
and Langdon 7 was certain to prove the
salvation 1 of Calhoun. "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." He referred to
the graft prosecutions as "small mat*
ters now being; urged In order that
more serious scandals might be kept
under cover." He declared that his
first official aot would be the dethrone
ment of Biggy, whom he denounced
as the "most unscrupulous man ever
born under the sun of California."
When the climax of this abuse' had
been reached many of the auditors, no
longer able to remain passive in the
face of such absurd declarations,
openly .voiced their feelings by crying:
"We're not all fools here." ., And smiles
and snickers on the part of the less
demonstrative hearers showed that
even the most vivid Imagination has
its bounds. . V"
"McGowan said that the banks were
not lending money owing to the pres
ent government of Spreckels and Phe
lan. "These men are the competitors
of the banks," he said, "and the banks
do not know what , kind of a govern
ment, they are going to give them.
Hearst is defending Ryan,"., he con
tinued, "for two reasons.- First to.
lower wages and second for political
revenge.- As soon as the campaign is
over he will > throw him over. And I
wish ;to say also that I do not -wish
any sack of ' Calhoun's money- opened
fo,r me. True, It was '. that I • once
worked for the Southern . Pacific, but I
never allowed them to control my
American . manhood. .I ~" took their
money :; the same as I would take
y«urs." ' "That's the boy, Frank," an
urchin in the rear shouted. i
About 300 men listened to McCarthy
deliver a. speech at \ noon at the corner
of. Third and King streets. -He told the
men that the next \u2666 administration
would not be controlled by a coterie of
millionaires nor would there be a, man
at I the head of the police ; department
who would be afraid to disarm undesir
able citizens. *He itold ; how he would
whip the: corporations into line if he
were elected. McGowan and other can
didates on the ticket made short ad
dresses and pleaded for votes for Mc-

It was a big day. "We have n^ver

expectations were much more than
The tremendous sacrifice sale under-

unique In many respects. Never before
has such a superb stock of pianos been

terms of payment been offered the

- Had our new "building on Market

by us at thoroughly reasonable prices,
but rather than leave them in the

decided to turn 162,000 of stock into
money at once and $41,000 Is all we ex-
pect to realize on them.
