Monster Rally That Means a Victory for Tayloir, Langdon and Civic Decency half block away from them, i with solid walls of people in between, and with the noises of the street swelling behind them, the # y were forced to turn away in disappoint ment. The vast pavilion, stretching from Sutter through to Post street and near ly half a block In width, was jammed until there was not an inch of stand ing room within sound of the voices of those who occupied the platform. Immense audiences have gathered there before, but never one that filled every available seat, crowded in behind the speakers' stand at the center of one side of the hall and overflowed Into every aisle and corner, as did the one last night. ENTHUSIASM AT HIGH PITCH Enthusiasm reached a fever pitch that broke time and again into tor rents of demonstrative cheers. Speak ers were, forced to stand for long min utes silent before the reverberating thunder of thousands of voices, raised in response to tome telling point of argument, could be stilled. Langdon, Heney and other members of the prose cution were given ovations that were limited only by the power of human lungs, and through 'it all there teemed h slnrerity and steadfastness of pur pose that mean but one thing for today — such an avalanche of votes as will sweep Langdon back into office -by the most -overwhelming of ma jorities. "" *v : - An effective feature of ! the great meeting was the use of thousands of small American flags, given to those In attendance as they swarmed into the pavilion early In the evening. When the members of the graft prosecution mounted the stand, when Langdon ap peared, and ngain at the olose of tho different speeches, tlie thousands stood in their seats, the red, white and blue Eyrabols of American patriotism wav ing In a mad profusion to the music of swelling" cheers. It was a demon stration that brought tears to many eyes, that caused a choking in many throats, and that made every breast pwell with the desire to support the principles of Americanism. *for which the flag stands, and which find their embodiment in the platform on which >angrdon and the good government eaders have waged their fight OI'TBUnST IS TUMULTUOUS Shortly after 8 o'clock Francis J. ieney, Hiram W. Johnson, William J. Burns. Joseph J. Dwyer and practically he whol«* staff of the district attorney's fflce took their place on the" speakers' tand, while the band In the overhang ng balcony above the stand burst into he patriotic strains of "The Stars and tripes for- Ever," and the crowd, t retched out on every side, voiced its pproVal of the men before them In c umultuous outburst. Langdon entered .hlle Johnson was speaking, and the attor grave way to the interruption, \u25a0hfi'h lasted . for -many noisy minutes, he scone which had marked the open t;t of the meeting, being repeated. Joseph J. Dwyer. who presided as iliirman, drew a storm of hisses and a torm.of cheers with the first breath f his opening speech. The hisses were or George, A. Knight, whose • name tie ?pr-ak>^r incidentally mentioned. The "What's the matter with Bill Lang ii<)!l?" "What's the matter with Francis J. Ilenoy?" •What .the matter with Hiram W. Johnson?" "What's the matter with William J. Burns?" . v The shores gave the verdict which the counting of votes tonight shall reg ister — an unbroken support for Lang don and the graft prosecution, and a pledge to the world that in San Fran cisco no man is above the law. "LANGDON,*' THE ANSWER "The question the world will ask to morrow night," cried Dwyer, "will not be whether the republican party, the democratic party or the union labor party is triumphant in San Francisco. but whether our manhood stands forth strong enough and big enough to tri umph over corruption. What will your answer be?" "Langdon! Langdon!" chorused the throng. Hiram W. Johnson was magnificently eloquent in his stirring address, and the tense seriousness of his appeal communicated itself to his audience. Dead silence prevailed as he pleaded the cause of good government and civic purity, and then the storm broke afresh as he asked his listeners what their, verdict of today t would be. Johnson paid his respects In unmlnced words to William F. Herrin, Frank McGowan and George A. Knight, picturing Her rln as the great chief of corruption, watching his forces as they, marshaled for the last stand in his campaign to enthrone graft again In San Francisco's municipal life. Knight, he said, had received his check, and the corpora tions had already written theirß for McGowan. - VERDICT OF THE PEOPLE "Tomorrow," he said, "you will write your check, and It will cay, 'Pay to William H. Langdon 20,000 majority,' and it will be eigned, 'The People of S&n Francisco.' " . .. . . . . . . _ _ Charley Oliver entertained the crowd with some nonsense songs during the intermission which followed, and the Angelus^ quartet gave a number of songs to popular a:rs, In which the words bore on the incidents of the cam paign/. Then Langdon was. introduced. Three times three cheers came in volleys as he stepped to the front' of. the platform and the crowd -continued' to voice its hearty enthusiasm until Langdon had motioned several times for Eilence. His speech was a straight forward analysis of the issues of the campaign. After Langdon came Heney, the last • speaker of the evening. For six mm\u25a0 \u25a0 utes he faced the throng before he was able to utter a word.. As -the cheers would die down there would be a shout from some corner of the hall, and the crowd would take it- up again. This continued until he had to beg for silence. When he finally made himself heard he went hammer and -tongs after the opponents of the graft. prosecution, treating with unmerciful words . the , merchants, "businessmen and corporate Interests which have given their, aid to San Francisco's . debauchery. 'He I rode rough shod over Herrln. McGowan, Knight and Calhoun; he held the bribe giver 3 up to public scorn, and he" went over the story of the graft, prosecution from beginning to end. RUEF IS NOT SPARED Heney did not spare Ruef. 1 He told of the effort that Ruef had made to stigmatize his character after he had given his pledge to send Ruef to Jail, and then, after a moment's hesitation and with tense voice, he told the story which his enemies have twisted against him, of how In the defense of Amer ican womanhood and to protect his own life, he killed a man In Tucson, Ariz. "The people of Arizona know every detail of that affair," he concluded '\u25a0 "and they know that all I ever did was PILES CURED IX 0 TO 14 DAYS Pazo Ointment la guaranteed to pure any race of Itching, Blind, Blerdlog or Protruding Piles la 6 to 14 daj» or mosey refunded. SOc. • Edward Robeson Taylor The indications arc favorable for my election by % a large plurality. I believe the people of San Francisco will. elect: the good government , ticket, including Langdon, against whom a special contest is being waged. The whole world "is on tiptoe, expecting San Francisco to fully redeem herself at this election, and, through the result, finally to be regenerated and stand once more unashamed. to risk my life in the defense of womanhood, and I'd do It again." While Heney was speaking, a steam whistle that had been used in -the Mc- Carthy parade earlier in the evening was driven around the pavilion rink, tooting at full blast with the evident purpose of breaking up the Langdon meeting. Heney threw the full power of his voice into the contest and more than sustained his end for a time. Then the crowd came to the rescue. Cheers from within drowned the bed lam without, and the whistle was finally removed from the vicinity. "What's the matter with 'Bill' Lang don?" shouted Chairman Joseph J. Dwyer, as he advanced to tho front of the platform to take charge of the monster, meeting. : "He's all right." came the tumultuous answer, almost drowned by cheers that shook the building. Then came from the chairman similar queries, "What's the matter with Francis J. Heney? Hiram W. Johnson? Rudolph Spreck els." and to each name a tribute of mighty and acclaiming shouts was given. HONEST MEN MUST RULE: \u25a0 "It Is not political principles we come here to discuss." said Chairman Dwyer, "we have come to discuss but one issue, so simple that any 5 year old child can comprehend it. An Issue which the mother discusses with her child, so 6imple it is. It is an Issue of common honesty. Never before in the history of the United States was this issue so plainly presented to the American people as today. Shall the grafters go to jail or shall they go to tho city hall? Shall the government of .his city be ruled by honest men or bood lera? "The nation is looking on to see whether San Francisco manhood has the backbone and the decency to see to it that thieves shall not .ule over us. By the splendor of the God above displayed' In the heavens tonight you will see that 'Bill' Langdon is made our district attorney!" In closing the speaker referred to Charles W. Cobb as one of the promi nent members of the graft proso-:u tion who was not present on the nlat form. and the name of the brilliant assistant. ln the district attorney's of fice sufficed to bring another Volley of wild cheers. , Then Chairman Dwyer introduced the first speaker. Hira-n W. Johnson, whose forceful eloquence and learning were a conspicuour feature of the brilliant meeting last night, as his work has been against the- boodlers and grafters on trial for their crimes. OVATION TO JOHNSON A skill not less than Johnson's him self would be required to describe the ovation he received. Above the tumult and acclaim, voices crisscrossed the nail shouting:, "You're nil right. Hiram!" "We are with you!" Stick to your job. you're winning," and other cries of like encouragement reached his eavs through a sea of waving flags, tossiiig of hats and commingling of cheers of men. women and children. "We come to you," said the co-work er with Lanerdon and, Heney, "In this last appeal somewhat weary in body hut with exultant Hearts. We have been from South San Francisco to North beach; from the Union iron works to Richmond district; we have visited the people In their homes and in their halls; we have met the work ingmen coming from their places of toil, and we tell you that the heart of San Francisco throbs with righteous ness tonight v We tell you that tomor row is San Francisco's day. We tell you that William H. Langdon will be elected to succeed himself. FOLLOWING ROOSEVELT'S POLICY "To republicans we appeal without fear because Langdon is hewing to the line that Theodore Roosevelt has marked out. You recall how only a week ago that American and bpst citi zen, Roosevelt, in Nashville, replied to those who held him responsible for the failure of the Knickerbocker bank, be cause, they said, his agitation against the wealthy, powerful boodlers had cheated the conditions which «±n>ied in the collapse o f the New York banking institution. You remember Roosevelt's reply. He -said:- \My policy is fully mapped out for all time, and I shall pursue It to the end regardless of who is hurt That policy consists in the punishment -of successful dishonesty wherever and whenever found. If fail ures result; if the criminally rich are hurt, the benefits derived from the policy of decency will even then have been cheaply "bought and easily accom plished.' Those were your president's words. For what does 'Bill' Langdon J3tand? He, stands-for the punishment of the successfully dishonest, just as Roosevelt stands. APPEAL .WITH CONFIDENCE "To. those of the -good government league and tto democratic party wq appeal :wlth . * : qual confidence. Every man who stands for clean government and "common " honesty must vote for him. They must elect the man, 'Bill' Langdon. who by appointing Mayor Taylor to office stands as, the very creatorof the standard bearer, of the democratic party and good government league. : "To . those in' this vast assemblage who represent the principle of labor unionism we appeal ; with perfect cer tainty. "The union labor man who with holds his vote from Langdon Is doing himself, his union " and his country a wrong. . . . "Can't you look back only a year ago when unionism in Sari Francisco was shamed and her fair \u25a0 name ' trailed In the mud of scandal before tho world? Can you not recall that'from all over the world came the verdict., 'Labor unionism is unfit to bo Intrusted with the :reins of' municipal government?" Do you not remember that out of all that 'filth and mire .and shame, you could still hold up 'your heads with pride because the man, who unearthed the crimes: who tracked the criminals and showed them that law reigned, was a labor union man— William ll.LanK don? \u25a0.;' FOLLOWS DUTY AND INTEGRITY *. VI recall. to you those conditions of a year and two months ago.'wheh sus picion, distrust and unrest existed and every "man looked askance, at his fel lows. Around Langdon stood those re spected rich and honored boodlers who offered him wealth, position and ease. You did not know it. but he did. He passed that crisis in his career .be cause he had only one beacon light and he followed It. It. was the light of duty and integrity. He stood one man at the : 'gunn. ; bound to you but by the tie of honor,', his official oath and love of civic decency. He did not yield to the temptaton that would have wrecked most men's souls. He stood for.; you. He was your man. He made your fight. For God's sake, won't you make his E. R. Taylor, democratic and Good Government league nominee for mayor stands for industrial peace, prosperity and a greater San Francisco. • THE SAX FBAXCISGO -CALL, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 190 T. fight tomorrow? You know how the public service corporations have bought your officials and made mock of your government. Shall -the men grown rich from the gifts of your streets'and now turned criminals — shall these men be prosecuted as a poor man is who steals a loaf of bread, or shall they go free? . UNDER FLAG OF GRAFT "Tonight there is a marshaling of the hosts of the opposition. I would to God I had the words to describe it to you. I see the great, white boss, Her rin of California,, sitting upon our in dependence and trading on the ruins of our city; I see Herrln and his cohorts. | They file by him In mad throng. First I see the United Railroads In unholy alliance wth the tenderloin of San Francisco; second, there com.eg the gas company with its thugs and toughs and the other public .serving corpora tions who seek to extend their period' of crime. I see these passing by this great .boss, who has done more wrong to our youths of California than a hundred criminals, and then I see, in cap and bells, dancing and clapping his hands for approval, Frank McGowan. Under wh£tt flag do they march? Under the great black flag of graft. You see one man standing to block that host, and he stands like a plumed knight panoplied In his robe of civic honor, making your fight with the aid of God and your votes. THE CHECK FOR LANGDON "George Knight has received his check. It was for $10,000 from the Home telephone company; doubtless Mc- Gowan has received his from the United Railroads. These corporations have pooled their money to beat 'Bill' Langdon. Shall our city bo bought? Shall we be bought like our boodling band of supervisors? Langdon can not write such a check as these corpora tions can pen, but he has written one payable to San Francisco, and he has written it with his blood and strength. Tomorrow you will wrlto one for him. It will read: "'SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 5, 1907. " 'To the Great Bank of Truth and Justice: - "'Pay to the order of William H. Langdon, 20,000 majority. " '(Signed) The People of San Fran cisco.' " . .I-" Following Johnson's impassioned and masterful address, Charles Oliver en tertained the audience with songs and then the chairman Introduced William H. Langdon. Such an ovation as Lang don received must have been gratifying to him. though he disclaimed it as ad dressed to himself personally, declaring it was given to the cause he has es poused, of civic honesty and to the principles of good government for which he stands. He skid in part: In the nonpertisan campaign that has been made by the district attorney there hare been no personalities, do vituperation or Marnier*, no deception, or falsehoods; but ther* hag been. a plain, truthful presentation of tbe issues lnrolved, an appeal to the c! Tic decency and honesty of this, community and a demand that law. Justice, order : and government be main tained as, the sacred rights of all. A campaign against irraft and corruption In this city has begun. The, people must decide whether ftr not It = shall bo on. The work Is not completed. Shall Jt be abandoned -now by command of the people? Will the citizenship of San Francisco put the stamp of approral upon graft, political corruption and the de banchery of i?OTernm«iit> On tomorrow these questions will be answered, and answered in no uncertain terms. TO THE LABORMEN In this campaign there hare been many false isFuos. You must think clearly and be not decelTed. You are told to withhold your sym pathies from a movement making for law and order and Justice because •It may hurt a party Interest, an Interest fundamental In, the allevia tion of many grievous wrongs. Once more It Is the cry of the false leader lending honest and trustful men astray. I,aw and ; order and Justice are the ultimate guarantees that grler ous wrong shall be righted. Destroy these and the greater principle has been sacrificed for the lesser. Neither capital nor labor can long thrive without their protection. We have In this prosecution and. ln this cam paign no word save that of . praise and encour agement to the cause of the millions who work with their hands. My own personal sympathy with the honest toiler at his day's work can never let me forget hts aspirations. Labor brought me Into government, and I believe that honest labor wanted me to do my duty. There Is no conflict between the needs of honest labor and th« needs of honest government. \u25a0 At the last campaign two men upon" the \u25a0 union labor . ticket were chosen i to Ulgh : office One trampled upon the law and brought the union labor eanse to shame. Tho other invoked the law and placed the one in Jail., Which will you choose to deny? Upon the one side. stands the law and Its honor; upon the . other stands crime. and Its shame. At tbe last campaign two men upon the same labor ticket were chosen to high office. One sold out the \u25a0, government and the . labor party to the criminals and the predaceous capitalists who have been most unfair to you. Tbe other maintained the law and put the criminal rich under the restrictions of the criminal code. Which will you choose to deny? ; This- prosecution ' stands upon clear ground. It stands in 1U Impersonal administration of law neither for the undue privilege of capital nor for the undue privilege of labor, but for the inalif nolle rights .of all. Against this prosecution stand In array of opposition every vicious capitalistic Interest in tbe city. If you are against this prosecution yon are with those Interests . working hand .

The fact "that they have investigated the situation presented to the people by Rudolph Spreckels and James IX Plielan with a . view of giving over the city government to Spreckels and Phelan has caused a wave of indignation on the part of the plain people, so much so that I am firmly con vinced I will receive a majority at the polls. Warning to Republicans At the lowest estimate 75 per cent of the republican vote of San Francisco will be cast for Edward R. Taylor for mayor. The signatures of republican voters on file at our head quarters prove the accuracy of this statement. A vote for Ryan is a vote for McCarthy. Do not throw your vote away. INDEPENDENT REPUBLICAN CLUBS THOS. E. HAVEN, President J. E. CUTTEN, Secretary. • ,'A. E. GRAUPNER, Chairman of Campaign Committee. they are trying to gtfal » game thfy hare lost. . We have come to the end of this campaign for the protection of this great city. The com batants am drawn up on both sides, the. battle Is tomorrow.. Upon the dny hang the destinies of the mightiest city, upon the Pacific coast. 'You are to make that ficht. citizens." you, and you alone. The whole world -rests breathless awaiting the decision .of nightfall.' A nightfall that shall usher, in -a' night of calm . and quiet rest to the men : who have fought a rreat ' civic fight and won,, or hurry In the darkness that public thieves may steal away with their plun der tmdispossessed and unpunished. Tomorrow will be more than significant for San Francisco; it will make life harder or better, the outlook upon life rosier or grayer for all who come after. It will be significant for this whole state for the best humanity from the hills and valleys will come here to live the life of the city, as the best, clean waters of tbe mountains and the ' valleys sweep down'at last by our feet. It will be significant for this whole nation, for bore as never before the ranker has attacked democracy and the people wait to see whether democratic politics can be clean, ' and whether the people will have the same law for the rich and the poor, the weak and the powerful. The- Issues are clear. Men have sold out government -and men have bought out- govern ment. Shall, the crime be punished? That is for you to answer. When you answer It, your vote will :. build, the. foundation of government or tear it down. It Is the issue as to whether democratic government or any other govern ment worth the name shall exist. I leave the battle in the hands of the Citizen soldiery of the city, feeling that t« them It may with safety be committed. After a song. Chairman Dwyer an nounced: "Ladies and gentlemen: . I now have the honor of introducing to you the last speaker of the evening. Francis J. Heney. I will Indulge in no vain eulogies; I will simply say that as a man in following out a trust he is as faithful as a dog and in executing that trust he is as brave as a llon^ — Francis : J. Heney." PROLONGED CHEERING FOR HENEY At 9:ls:Heney arose from his chair and walked to the edge of the platform. But for more than five minutes the cheering was so loud that he could not be heard. When he begun, he con tinued for an hour and 16 minutes. Heney said: • "Ladies and gentlemen: No fight was ever lost that has an many women,in terested in it as are interested in this fight for .San Francisco. It shows that the .conscience of the people of. the country is aroused. In war the women are always, the bravest. The women here tonight give positive, proof that the people are awake to the battle. "The battle to be fought tomorrow Is not the< battle of William H. Langdon. He "~ can afford to lose It. It is San Francisco that cannot afford to lose the fight; it is the state of California that can not afford to lose /the fight; it is the nation of America that can not afford to . lose the fight. The fight is' not to put a few men in Jail. The issue is, . Shall human liberty be perpetuated. under a republican form of governments., Until you have learned that the foundation of government is in the virtue of the masses you have not learned the first principle of human liberty. The fight tomorrow is to dem onstrate that corporations cannot con trol the municipal government. .You can't have honest national government until, you have'honest. municipal gov ernment. INFLUENCES BEHIND CORRUPTION "To put men in jail Is trifling. The great* education ' of , the people comes from the object lessons given by the developments shown at these investi gations. What are the causes 1 of cor ruption? From the confessions of the supervisors we find that ] here are two classes of bribery going on in every city of the United States. They are the tenderloin, thriving on immorality,^on the profits of houses of ill fame and on gambling. .They want to put In r^ower a mayor who will give them a, police commission: which .will let them con duct dives "where people are .robbed. Those Influences are always behind the boss. : "Ruef Is not the first boss. 'Our memories can run back to Chris Buck ley. Behind Buckley were the tender loin habitues, who secured from hini their right to ply their immoral trades. Behind Chris Buckley .also when he was boss were the gas company, the water company, the Southern Pacific qompariy and the street railroads. Why? Because 'they all -wanted ; privileges to which they were not : entl tied.; The pub lic service corporations and.the,tender loin are bound in unholy wedlock. "When Buckley was /boss he didn't need the board of supervisors, he had the solid nine,, which comprised, the majority of the board o*. twelve mem bers..' Then there r.-Jiire the republican bosses, BUI HirK'ni' and Philly Crlm mins. Who. was behlhd r Crimmins? The United - Railroads, the telephone -com pany,, the gas company and the other public service ' and the tenderloin, joined together In unholy, wedlock. . , . DEFEAT WOULD BE DISGRACE \u25a0 "Every mother should teach her boys at her knee, the lesson' that can be learned ; from this : That Boss Tweed used to say, 'I don't care who the peo ple vote" for. Just so they let me have the nominating.'

A 1,1, MUST RESPECT UW . "It was said that there were mo tives behind the graft prosecution. I i will say that -I. did not want to indicc those men; practically every man in dicted was a personal friend of mine, some were clients of mine. I would ' feel that I were guilty of a grave crime If I were unjust to them. The convic tion of Calhoun would not make him a better man. Unless we tell the people ; that the law is made to be enforced against every man. against the rich and the poor, the lowly and the power ful, the people will have no respect for the law. : "When we started a year ago to ex pose these grafts we were unable for five months to make headway. I went to the heads of these corporations, try ing to get them to give us evidence, to help us convict the 18 supervisors, Ruef and Schmttz, but they would not. They had a chance to get immunity but they did not take it. Then, after five months, we trapped Supervisor Lonergan, and the other members of the board confessed. McGowan would hay« prosecuted Lonergan. What would have happened? The other 17 supervisors would have become — care ful. "I have been accused of many things. When we first started in Ruef flooded the city with charges against me." In a lower voice Hene'y said that he would answer one of the charges, and he recited the story of his act in Ari zona In shooting in self-defense the man who had tried to bulldoze him out of defending the man's wife in a di vorce suit. HE.VEY FLATS HERHIX Then Heney'a voice rose again to its normal pitch and he flayed William F. Herrln for the corruption of every bright young man who started in political life in this city or state. "A- more corrupting and demoralizing influence (than Ilerrln's) could not be brought tto bear on any free people," Heney declared. The crowd clamored for an opinion of George Knight. "Knight," said Heney, "tells you that he is a friend of Theodoro Roosevelt. When Roosevelt wanted some one to talk to an audience, for a job, the main qualification of which was a voice as loud as a bull's, he selected George Knight. When Theodore Roosevelt wanted to select some one to prosecute timber thieves in Oregon he took a deputy from Mr. Langdon's office. Knight got $10,000 for the speech he made the other night. "All I ask Is that you keep in mind what I. told you — that San Francisco is no worse than any large city. There are certain causes behind all graft and the only way to prevent them is by re moving the cause.

In the district soutn of Market street, where two years ago a man not on the union labor ticket would not have been accorded a hearing, the'vote has split, and split widely, and the majority.

M'GARTHY'S PARADE LACKS ENTHUSIASM Continued from Page 1, Column 6. of the carmen's union were In line. Several of the largest unions of car penters were not represented. The vast army of iron workers was conspicu ously absent. So it was with the team sters, the electricians and dozens of other unions who had been scheduled to appear. While hundreds of honest toilers walked beneath the banner of Mc- Carthy, ,the old guard of the Ruef- Schmltz machine ; seized the occasion to demonstrate that it was still in the game. In and out of the parade dodged a detachment of automobiles In which were the familiar faces that graced the meetings, in which th« county Jail contingent was wont to shine. "Kid" Sullivan rode near the front with a party of friends. Cockey O'Brlen and Boxcar McGinty were there, and with them an ample follow ing from the tenderloin. McCarthy with his wife occupied an open carriage. City Attorney Burke, hearse than anything else. Not a cheer County Clerk Mulcrevy. Sheriff' O'N'ell and the other, candidates were in the line of march, some In carriages and others in automobiles. Some special feature had been arranged for nearly every candidate, but the float set apart for Frank McGowan passed slowly and unattended, suggestive rather* of a for McGowan broke from the pave. Oc casionally there was a demonstration for McCarthy, but tb»re was nothing In the nature of an ovation. The parade lacked the spectacular touches of the old Schmitz regime. The master hand of Ruef wa3 missing. Ruef played to the Imagination; McCarthy appeals to prejudice. Had Ruef ar ranged the parade he would have marched a hundred pawnbrokers under a gay banner with some title as "Mc- Carthy's Business Men's club." Or he would have had a uniformed cavalry squad known as thg "McCarthy'Hsrse men." \u25a0 The nearest to the spectacular was an engine, mounted on a truck, which kept up a whistle that could be heard throughout .the city. Rome red fife, banners and transparencies helped out. The parade formed at the junction of Market street and Van Ness avenue, proceeded up Van Ness to Golden Gate avenue, thence to Fillmore, to Post, to the Dreamland rink at Stelner. Both sides of the line of march were crowded with onlookers. The procession moved promptly at 8:30 with Grand Marshal H. M. Alex ander and a score of aids at the head. Police Captain Mooney, in an automo bile, had charge of the police arrange ments. Sergeant Rainsbury with IT mounted patrolmen comprised the po lice escort. . The Mulcrevy and O'Xeil central clubs 'were given a prominent place in the line of march and follow ing them came the sheet metal work ers. This organization was one of the most effective in the procession. It marched 350 strong and every member carried a sheet of tin, which they rat tled in concert. Interspersed in the line of march were the various unions and the McCarthy district clubs. The carmen, at whose head rode Sec retary Bowling, were frequently cheered. A small detachment of the old Schmitz rough riders occupied dec orated wagons. A fling at Dr. Taylor consisted of a banner on which were parodies of some of the well known poems of the good government candi dates. None of the men in line -were In uniform. The parade was 40 minu tes in pa3sing a given point. A large crowd thronged both sides of Fillmore street as the parade passed by and while there was considerable shouting and enthusiasm by those in the line of march, the people who lined both sides of the street showed but little interest. As McCarthy passed by in a carriage, tipping his hat to the crowd, he was given a frigid reception. The crowd appeared to be there as a matter of curiosity. Fillmore street looked like a nar row lane as the crowd lined the side walks and the marchers passed by. There was little or no disturbance during the parade, the crowd , being very orderly. After the parade the people in the street turned the night into a carnival suggestive of New Year's eve. The police experienced little trouble in handling the crowd. Pay no heed to campaign fakes or rumors.
