Nov. 4.— Seniors at the University of California will meet Wednesday to discuss resolutions de nouncing the fiypapering of David. L. Levy for his article in the monthly magazine accusing e<v*ds of having . formed a smoking club. The men of the class of 1908 are indignant over the / treatment accorded their classmate and will express thoir indignation. It is extremely likoly that the uni versity authorities will take up the matter and investigate the hazing with a view to fixing V.vi responsibility. Editor Lewis A. McArthur in the Daily Californian, the student daily, says that placing the flypaper on the student editor was as bad for the uni versity in the eyes of the public as the article which brought down the hazing on Levy. McArthur says in part this morning: Granting that the publication of the article was unfortunate, tlie attack on the editor of the Occident was just as bad. Mob rule is Mt to be tolerated ia this uuiTei>ity, especially tvhen It comes ia sticking taujlefoot on a man. The beet way to have handled this matter would have b<-en to liave passeil it up to the Ptudeuts' affairs committee.

Members of the board asserted that no such resolution had ever been passed. The matter came, up in the consideration of a protest filed by Snook against John Bernard, who is alleged to sell liquor to laborers em ployed by the company in Niles canyon. The company asserted that the men handled explosives in their work. Final action on the motion to revoke Ber nard's license will be taken on Monday, when Snook shall have completed his search for the resolution.

All the aisles of the big structure were packed and men, women and boys crowded on the platform until most of the candi- ' dates had to be satisfied with standing ' room. The throng: was enthusiastic , and whenever a cheer was given the clash of sheets of tin and the tooting; of horns added to the din. . William R. Hagcrty, former police [ commissioner, presided. When he found he could not make himself heard lie supplied himself with a megaphone. The arrival of P. H. McCarthy was the signal for a demonstration that continued several minutes. Before, It ended McCarthy was picked up by mus cular friends, who stood him up on top of the speakers' stand. A bouquet of carnations and a flag "were handed to him and he waved a gift in each hand as he bowed in appreciation d*f the greeting. After the Pierce quintet had sung two campaign songs, Major C. W. Kyle stepped to the edge of the platform and shouted: "Everybody knows that P. H. McCarthy will be the next mayor. All the thieves, grafters and liars are hiding behind Taylor, but the people are behind McCarthy." Colonel T. V. Eddy announced that he had a little message to deliver. It was from the labor party county com mittee, \u25a0which organization predicted the election no.t only of McCarthy and McGowan, but the whole labor ticket. In rapid succession numerous candi dates were lifted to the speakers' stand, but only two did more than bow. Those two were P. H. McCarthy and Frank McGowan. The others, who ap peared and disappeared without speak ing, were , County Clerk Mulcrevy, J. J. Sullivan, Charles A. Bantel, Joseph A. Stulz, Recorder John H. Nelson, Auditor . Samuel W. Horton, John I. Sparrow. Sheriff Thomas F. O'Neil, Theodore Lunstedt,. Charles A. Nelson, Harry F. Sheehan, Coroner W. J. Walsh, City Attorney W. G. Burke, B. F. Gould and Wiliam Clack.

In response he said: "I have only time to say v that,lf the good people of San Francisco honor me with election to the office of district attor ney I promise - you tonight* 1 , before heaven I will prosecute the law hon estly and fairly against every man ac cused of crime. The chief abuaer of the prosecution, Heney, with vitupera tion, which should -shame any ono, has declared I will not prosecutor .Patrick Calhoun. I tell you on my honor I will prosecute Calhoun with the fullest vig or of the law. Furthermore If I am elected I will see that the law is 'so effectively enforced that Calhoun'edes 'peradoes, armed with pistols, like bad men from Arizona, will not. shoot, our citizens In cold blood in his rattletrap street cars. My opponents refused to Issue warrants for these men. I. will have warrants issue'l. One word more. If I am elected- 1 will net allow, the district attorney's office to be dese crated by the dirty dollars of a mil lionaire as Rudolph Spreckels was per mitted to do." . P. H. McCarthy was *he last speaker. He was introduced amid great cheer ing,/and it wa« some time before the demonstration ceased. His speech -was very short. "Many may not know," he said, "that the corporations, one •of which turned out the lights on' our people tonight and made many of, them march In the dark, are ready to do any thing tomorrow to nullify the will ; of tbe voters. It will be necessary to keep close watch at the polls until the votes are counted. I will bo electedandthe whole labor ticket will go_,through by at least 10,000 majority. I "want to say In closing that when I am mayor I will have the head of Mr. Biggy on January 8, the very first day I take my seat." McCarthy bowed and stepped down, the crowd gave him another round of cheers, and the 3trenuoua campaign of; the leader of the labor ticket was at an end. \u25a0 GIVE WARDEN' WATCH SACRAMENTO, KTovl 4.— The guards of Folsom prison Saturday evening pre sented Warden Archibald Yell a gold watch, locket^ and chain.

ALAMEDA CONTRA COSTA JOHN MUIR OPPOSES HETCH HETCHY PLAN Believes Valley-Should Not Be Destroyed by Water " Works / BERKELEY, Nov. 4.— John Muir, the famous naturalist, has returned from a trip to the Yosemlte national park, where, at the -instance of . President Roosevelt, he made an examination of the Hetch Hetchy ,valley water shed. Muir 'was accompanied by William Keith, the artist. Muir will leave for Washington soon. He passed through Berkeley this morning on. his way homo near Martinez, where his daugh ter Helen "is seriously ill from, pneu monia. Muir said in a general way that he was opposed to the Hetch Hetchy plan on the ground that he did not believe the valley should be destroyed by water works construction, dams and the like. He thought that water sheds lower down in the Sierra Navadas might be-, located that would be as available as the Hetch Hetchy valley. BLOW OPEN SAFE IN MAYFIELD STATION PALO ALTO. Nov. 4. — Safe blowers partly wrecked the Southern Pacific station at Mayfield last night in their efforts to blow open the station safe. The safe door was torn from its hinges and blown through a partition into an adjoining room, w^kile papers and ac count books .were widely, scattered throughout the rooms of the station by the force of the explosion. The burglars, of whom the police think there were not more*than two. secured $54.40 in cash from the safe. Evidently some one familiar with, con ditions at the station did the job in the hope of securing $500 that had been placed in the safe during the day. The station agent, B. R.Holston, had taken the precaution to carry this money home with him when he, left during the evening, leaving only the amount that the burglars procured in the safe.

TAYLOR ADDRESSES THREE LARGE MEETINGS Points Out to Voters the Clear Cut Issues of the Campaign Mayor Taylor, brought his campaign to a close last night hy making three stirring addresses to three different audiences and. though his remarks had necessarily to be brief, they were none the less effective and were received in each instance with intense enthusiasm. Mayor Taylor took the same stand he has throughout, the campaign, declar ing he was not to be regarded as an Individual seeking an office, but as the representative of a principle. "I never asked for, the nomination," he said, "and I did not go out of my way to get it. It was offered to me by the citizens of. San Franicsco, who believe they have in me a proper per son as mayor. "The issues in this campaign, to my mind, are clear cut. Class hatred and personal - ambition which have arisen serve only, to befog it, and there is nothing more for you to do than to decide whether you want a continuance of the present administration or a change. ."The present administration, I main tain, has the confidence of the majority of the people. It has proceeded about Its business in a businesslike way and has done a great deal — a very great deal — in bringing about a normal con dition of the city's affairs. You must not forget that the present administra tion found the city in a state of chaos. The one that preceded it had been wal lowing in the filth of^corruptlon and had b,een pulled out by the scruff of the neck. Then it devolved on us to not only straighten out the many entanglements brought about by the disaster, but also to undo much that the former administration had done." The addresses were made at Wolf's hall, Ocean View; Teresa hall. Teresa and Mission streets, and at Lecari hall. Silver avenue and San Bruno road. Among the other speakers at these meetings were Jesse Steinhart. John Kean, "Walter Macarthur, Louis Ferrari and Joseph Haber. Langdon. who was to have spoken at the same meetings last night, -found , at the. last moment that he could not do so on account of the extreme hoarseness of his voice, which he strained while speaking at the Pavilion rjnk. FINAL ESTIMATES MADE BY PARTY MANAGERS The managers and associates of the heads of the respective tickets make the following forecasts of the result of today's election: . ;-'. Perry H. Newberry, aecretary of the regular republlcaln leagues "Tho fight is between Ryan and Mc- Carthy, and Ryan will. win. I estimate the total vote at 57,000. Ryan will get 25,000, | McCarthy 16,000, . Taylor 14,000 and Reguln 2,000. -Ryan will poll at least ,18,000 republican votes, 2.000 democratic and 5,000 union labor party votes; and. by union labor party votes I do not, mean merely men who carry cards, but men who have voted the union labor party ticket. Taylor will get the votes of some union men cer tainly, but they will be union men who have'- for the most part voted the republican and democratic tickets. The straight union labor party vote will be insignificant." Matthew Brady and Louis XI. Mooaer, In charge of democratic headquarters i "We see no reason for a change in the estimates we made public yester day. The reports we have received to | day indicate that there has been a change of sentiment running from Ryan to Taylor, but we are not pre pared to revise our estimates. The total vote will approximate 64,600, di vided as follows: Taylor, 23,000; Mc- Carthy, 17,000; Ryan, 11,000; Reguln, 3,600. Hugh M. Burke, \u25a0ecretary of the good government leagues "Mayor Taylor will be elected tomor row by a plurality of 10,000 over Mc- Carthy, the second man In the race; and by more than twice the vote polled by Ryan. We qjre more than gratified with the latest reports from those dis tricts generally denominated ag labor strongholds. We have broken Into the labor vote this time. The working people are going to vote for San Fran cisco, their homes and full dinner palls. I estimate the total vote to be cast at 59,000p of which Mayor Taylor will re ceive 27,000.' McCarthy 17,000, Ryan 12,000 and Reguln 3,000."< \u25a0 Thomas K. Haven, ' president of the Independent republican clubs t - :• "I fully expect that the results of tomorrow's election will . show that Mayor Taylor has received a clear ma jority of all the votes cast. I estimate the. total vote at from 54,000 to 59,000. Mayor Taylor will receive at least 30,000, and: lf the vote reaches a total fof 59,000 he will poll approximately 35,000,. as against 12.000; for McCarthy. 8,000 for Ryan and 4,000, f0r Reguln." ;. Al McCabe, campaign manager for : District Attorney Langdont ~ \u25a0 ;-- "I predict that Langdon will beelect ed by a majority of 25,000. I estimate the. total vote at 55,000," 0f. which Lang don will receive 40,000, as against 15,000 | for \u25a0 hla opponent. 'The sentiment in favor of .:, decency Is overwhelming. There could be no possibility of any other result In any American city where the question has been present ed so s glaringly as it has in . San Fran cisco. McGowan's/ name is associated i with graft; Langdon's with decency and the enforcement of the law. The people will vot« for decency and the law." - V-. • I Thomas .F. Finn, chairman union labor county, committees "We have won the fight. To me it looks like 30,000 for McCarthy, 13,000 for'Taylor and 12,000 for Ryan.

St£e*>&&&3if f^^' [REFUSE SUBSTITUTED LAND FRAUD EVIDENCE MISSING AFTER MURDER Motive for Killing of Secret 1 Service Agent Walker Is Revealed DENVER. Colo., Nov. 4. — Joseph Vanderwiede, who shot and killed United States Secret Service Agent Jo seph A. Walker at DurangO, Colo., yes terday, and William Mason, superin tendent of • the Hesperus coal mine, where the shooting occurred, were charged with murder jointly at Du rango today on information sworn by E. J- Brennan. also a. federal agent. A post-mortem examination of Walk- | er's body conducted by Coroner. Le- ; f urgey today disclosed that six- shots had entered his body, one penetrating the left wrist, two entering . the neck and three entering the left, side of Walker's back. It la cltilmed by Walk er's brother officers that it was I'm-' possible for him to have been firing at Mason and Vanderwi«de "when .the lat- , ter shot him. as Is maintained, for in order to do so he-must have been fac ing the two men and would hava .re celved the discbarge from Vander wiede'a shotgu% in the face. - .\u25a0'.% • A new twist was given the. case to- : day by the discovery that a number, of maps, plates and diagrams of the > Durango coal fields, as well as the! statements of persons and Walker's own memoranda concerning the results! of his 10 months' work gathering evl- ; dence in that country to be used In; the land fraud cases, were missing. Walker is known to have carried this mass of documentary matter on his person at all times, it is said, and with his death It has disappeared. It is ad mltted that the government will be. considerably handicapped and per haps . defeated by this loss, and the hint is thrown out that this may have been the real reason for the constant shadowing of Walker for several weeks past. Government agents were aware that Walker had been under constant sur veillance since the report of the grand jury was made several weeks ago Indicting nearly two dozen men prom-, inent in business circles of south western Colorado.
