In conclusion the mayor said: "San

the crowd gave him a tremendous
It was the same when District Attor-
T ' € J Lan Sdon entered the hall as It was
\u25a0when Mayor Taylor appeared. Cheers
BJad applause greeted him. and the
throng was so great that he. like the I
mayor, had to be escorted through the
crowd that choked the entrance and
aisles by three patrolmen headed by i
Policeman Rocca. The crowd waved
hats, shouted itself hoarse- and then
settled back to wait until Chairman
Fontana called on the district attorney
for an address.
The district attorney's speech was as
brief as It was pointed. He said he
certain that an extended address
from him was unnecessary.
"we have been engaged." he said,
•for 10 months In a struggle to bring
to justice powerful and upscrupulous
criminals. This work has been done
In the face of tremendous odds. It re
mains uncompleted. I ask you the sim
ple questions: Do you wish it carried
on to a successful conclusion? Do you
\u25a0want to help us prove to the world
that In San Francisco there is but one
law for the innocent and the guilty
"The issues are plain, and you will
answer ray question, I am sure, not
only to the citizenship of this city and i
state, but to the whole nation, and you
will answer rightly, to the end that
purity and justice in our municipal life |
shall be established."
Former Supervisor \u25a0M. J. Fontana
opened the meeting and introduced the
Fpeakers. He declared that he had en
tered actively into the present campaign
reluctantly and only because he felt that
It was necessary for every citizen to
work for the good of the city so that
San Francisco might redeem itself In
the eyes of the world by electing a
nonpartlsan ticket from top to bottom.
• Chairman Fontana first introduced
Walter Macarthur, who addressed the
meeting from the standpoint of a labor
Jr.ader. He declared that the real
traitors to union labor were to be
found In those who would turn organ
ised labor over, bound and gagged, to
self-seeking manipulators of union
"If It were an issue," he said, ."be
tween capital and labor, you know
•where you'd find me fighting. But the
present Is & struggle to rehabilitate
San Francisco, morally as well as phys
ically, and In this rehabilitation labor is
as greatly interested as capital. If

Percy V. Long followed with a clear
statement" of the financial interests > in
volved In the present "campaign and
told how vast sums of money had been
squandered by the previous board •of
supervisors uselessly and criminally.
This he contrasted with the«present
economical and wise prosecution of the
city's business and asked which his
hearers preferred.
P. C Rossi, president of the Italian
Swiss colony, made a deep impression
by his personal appeal to his fellow
countrymen to vote the good govern
ment ticket.
J. W. Sweeney, president of the iron
trades council,* proved to his hearers
that the real interests of organized
r| labor rested with the parties opposed
'to the present leaders of the labor
union party, who, he declared* were a
menace to unionism. He appealed to
the voters of the north end to stand by
the present graft prosecution so that
when the present assistant district at
torney, Heney, should complete his
tabors here under Langdon he would
be encouraged to go to Los Angeles
end send that "arch criminal and enemy
of labor, Harrison Gray Otis, to jail."
Ralph McLeran made a convincing
attack on P. H. McCarthy, who had, he
said, fought against the, Interests of
various unions — painters, plumbers,
electricians and millmen — simply to
further his own political schemes. He
declared that the members of these or
ganizations would vote to a man
against McCarthy.
Judge Cabaniss and Judge Wcller
made short addresses in behalf of their i
candidacy for the police bench and
were well received. Dr. T. V. W. Le
land, for coroner; Lawrence Dolan, for
sheriff; Dr. A. H. Glannini, James A.
Johnson, for supervisor, and Ml J.
Hynes, candidate for public adminis
trator, spoke earnestly and effectively
for the party and principles which they
asked the voters to establish in power
in this city.
More than 300 workmen who toil In
the vicinity of the foot of Sansome
6treet gathered at that place shortly
after noon yesterday and cheered them
selves hoarse for Langdon and other
candidates on the democratic and good
povernment league ticket. The fighting
district attorney made another ( of those
fiery, vehement speeches In which he
flayed the rich criminals who corrupt
" ed city officials. That his words took
fieep root In the minds of his listeners
tras attested by the rounds of cheers
that interrupted the speaker at short
The meeting was opened by Ralph
McLeran, the union leader, who is
running for supervisor on the good
government ticket. McLeran showed
his working card from the building
trades council and then paid his re
spects to McCarthy. He referred to the
manner In which McCarthy had dis
rupted the electricians', painters',
plucibers' and bricklayers' unions.
LCJigdon came next, smilingly salut
ing the cheering crowd. Once again
he told the voters that he was out to
fight Calhoun and the other indicted
kings of finance to the bitter finish.
He told how Schmitz was sent .l to jail
and how Influence was brought to bear
on the prosecution at that time to drop
the cases.
"But we answered that so long as
Bchmltz was sent to 'jail we -Intended
to 6end the men wno corrupted him
there, too," thundered Langdon.
The speaker, referred- to the immuni
ty cry that was being raised- by his
opponent and again explained how in
t bribery case It "was necessary to make |
a compact' with one of the parties to
the crime Jn order that the legal;evl
flence could be obtained. \ Langdon
tnade a great hit with the crowd when
he announced that the. prosecution had
b. chance to send either poor old Tom
; \u25a0 rxmergan or Pat Calhoun to jail .- and
It decided that Calhoun was the man
whom the striped suit would better be

that he cannot- be reached -or tampered!
with," concluded L»angdon- , "Our ene- ;
mics are moving heaven \u25a0 and earth to
Intimidate our witnesses or else spirit
them outside the \u25a0 jurisdiction of the
courts. !We know where . Ruef Is and
we know that we will have: him when
we are ready to put him on the' witness
stand- to testify against the menVwho
prostituted and corrupted our fair city
in her hour of need." . . .. '\u25a0'
William P. McCa be, candidate for
county clerk,- followed Langdon," and
in a few words told the crowd of his
fights In labor circles for, good gov
ernment. He promised them a -fair, ad
ministration of the office and urge*
them to vote. the ticket straight from
Taylor to the bottom. Police Judge
Wellcr was well received and made a
hit- with a bright, snappy speech. "
At their own request Langdon. visited
the baggagemen. expressmen, and
freight .handlers -in the- ferry building
at 11 o'clock yesterday "morning.. : The
district attorney met' about .200 of the
workers personally and discuesed i the
political situation, man' to, man. Hfs
visit was -a great event' among, the
tcilers. They flocked "around the fear
less prosecutor, shook, him \u25a0'\u25a0'. by the
hand and assured him that they would
not only vote for him but would make
his' fight among their friends until
election day. . . . ' ' , :
The i gathering . was strictly an in
formal one, but probably did more 'for
Langdon's cause- than many. 'an affair
that had been billed a week ahead.
When "pressed for a speech Langdon
told of the vast task the prosecution
had undertaken and how it intended to
carry it out if. given the opportunity.
; "We,, arc after the big fellows, boys,"
said Langdon. "and we are going to
send them to jail of you help us. It' is
up to you. If you give us your votes, we
will go, ahead. If you elect my oppo
nent. _the prosecution of these graft
cases will be dropped -and the kings of
finance who have debauched your pub
lic servants will go free instead of to
jail where they belong."

Food Poisons.
90 Per Cent cf AH Diseases: the Result
of Undigested Putrefying Foods. •
• M*>n of affairs, womenof society and
children with active' brains, are too
often sedentary in 'their habits, giving
little time to exercise.'-. To- this evil -Is
added that of high and irregular liv-
ing—as a result.' the" stomach cannot
stand the demands made upon it. The
abused .and overtaxed stomach .does
not properly do the work of digestion,
food taken in ferments and the; poison
permeates the whole system. The body
loses in weight and becomes a prey
for the attack of whatever disease . it
may encounter.
Did It ever occur; to you how busy
that stomachof yours is?- It only holds
three pints, but In one year you force
it to take, in 2.400 pounds of j material,
digest it and prepare it for assimilation
Into the blood. No wonder it I rebels
when overworked. ..We crowd it with
steaks and ' pastry, -Irritate Its Juices :
with spices and acids, and expect the
stomach to do Its work. It can't do It.
All :over the inner layer of the
stomach are glands which secrete the
Juices -/jecessary to digestion. The en-
trance of food Into, the stomach is .the
signal f for these ' glands to do their
work. The more the food, and the more.
Indigestible, the greater the demand
upon them arid upon the muscles of the
