JAMES D. PHELAN EXCORIATES DARGIE "Foul Creature , Dares Impugn Best Citizenship," Says Former Mayor Feels Assured People Will Put Appellate Court Judges Out of Office ALAMEDA. Jan. 14. — "A corrupt ras cal edits a paper in Oakland. That foul creature has dared to Impugn the mo tives of the best citizenship of San Francisco and of the graft prosecution. \ He published a most damnable libel, ml which he sought to asperse the honor ! of a. cood mother through the mouth of an affectionatcson, who is one of the j men prominent in the prosecution of the grafter*. Of course, it was a das tardly and low lived stand, as every body knows. Why. if a dog of that Itind were shot down on his own door step the shooter would be justified un der the unwritten law." In these scathing terms James D. Phelan, former mayor of San Fran < isco. referred to William E. Dargie, oditor of the Oakland Tribune, in an address on San Francisco, delivered be*, fore a large audience in the First Christian church tonight. There was an outburst of applause at this point. Continuing. Phelan said: "If we lose our fight for honest mu nicipal government and honest munici pal officials in the appellate court, we will begin the fight all over again, for our cause is just. And we feel cer tain that the people will put those judges out of office when we ask them to do so. That miserable wretch, Abraham Ruef. who now languishes in the county jail, believed that he could repeatedly corrupt the electorate. He actually entered into contracts to carry elections. Peculiar conditions existed during his reign. Class hatred seemed for a time to blind the people of San Francisco to their best interests and the best interests of their city. TI3OPI.E RESUME REASON* "But the last election proved that the people had come back to the use of reason. AU were amazed at the support accorded the graft prosecution at the polls. The people rose up In their might for the right and over turned the .most corrupt municipal gov ernment that any city in the United States has ever known. The confidence of the people is the greatest asset that the lenders in the movement to rid t-'an Francisco of corruption and graft ers have in their fight. 'It often has been asserted that the l?raft prosecution was a campaign against- individuals. Every man who has come within the toils of the law insists that he has been singled out for personal reasons and prosecuted to fauen an enemy's grudge. As a mat te:- of^ fact, we ail. know that the men who were indicted were men who had struck at the very foundations of good government and obtained by corrupt means what they never could have ob tained if the people had the say. When the news was flashed across the conti nent that Kan Francisco had jailed the two arch grafters. Ruef and Schmltz. > the city was given a -moral uplift the world over. San Francisco is now in the process of rebuilding, physicaily and morally. «and is recovering from the effects of the loss of Ufeblood that was drawn from her by the vampire' grafters.' 1 TKVIV WATER PROJECT Phelan spoke of the criminal libel i case of Wi'l Tevis against the Bulle tin, concluding: • > "I happen to know all about the wa t<-r project deal in which Mr. Tevis was concerned, and know what was pub lisi.ed about Mr. Tevis' connection with tl:e scheme to sell to San Francisco for * 10.000,000 a water project that cost Mr. Tevis about $300,000 is true. He vill J«ive to go farther back than the water deal if he wants to have his character vindicated. Abe Ruef was paid $25,000 for the part that he played in fixing things so that the Hetcli j Detcfcy valley water project, which was I paid hy competent engineers to be the J best project for supplying San Fran- ! Cisco with pure water, was turned j down by the board of supervisors owned by Ruef. '. "After, the Hetch Hetchy valley pro joct was rejected Ruef and his 6ubser- • Vjent supervisors called for the sub mission of other projects for" supply ing water to San Francisco. Thirteen wore submitted. These were sifted tfown to five by Boss Ruef and later to one project, and that project was the one behind which was Mr. Tevis." WOMAN DEFIES THE BANK COMMISSION Continued From Page J t Column O \u25a0 ge. They removed their secretary, J. Cal Ewing, whose offense consisted ofi having political friendship for Parde«» Hunting for more Jobs to give away the administration commissioners be thought themselves of the position oc cupied by Miss Boch. She had never *rivc:i a moment's thought to politics and h*r sole offense consists of con scientious attention to duty over a period of eight years,' HITCH IX HIS PI^AAS !H was intimated in a manner that could not be misunderstood that it would be agreeable if Mlsb Boch would tender her resignation. She did not resign. Matters came to & climax yes terday when Commissioner Sherer* as ascnt for the. administration en dravored to have the position declared vacant. Believing that all would go as ho had planned he had telegraphed to the prospective appointee to leave at onoe for San Francisco. But for some • rrai>6n there was a hitch. Evidently some members of the commission were ' conscience stricken at the last minute! and no action was taken yesterday It appear* that while Sherer is fight ing for-the removal of Miss Boch, Com missioner Silver has delayed, his - own I resignation in order to battle for her retention. Commissioners Lynch, and Garoutte are neutral, but ready to act: when tbe administration snaps the; whip. There is some hope' for Miss Boch that Commissioner .Lynch . will stand by "her and block the attempt to' remove her. While collector of internal revenue Lynch gave, employment to several women in his office, and it was i his boast that no amount of political chicanery could induce him to remove a woman who performed satisfactorily tlae duties of her office. It 1* expected that the matter will; come, up before the. commission again before the end of the .week. In _th« meantime Sherer is endeavoring to per ruado Lynch and Garoutte '•» to stand witli him out pf^'.'loyalty.to'the Glllett administration." „•" , .«•- ; M'isk Boch was reluctant' to discuss t ho matter, but^ admitted that, the facts as stated were true.

POSTOFFICE AN AGENCY I FOR ASPIRING PUGILISTS Special Delivery Foreman Both Fight Promoter and Cigar Stand Owner Arthur G. Fisk's administrations- of the affairs of the San Francisco post office may be open to afl the criticism leveled at it by those "fussy citizens" who insist, on viewing the ; postofflce from the/ standpoint of services ren dered the public, but Fisk can success fully defend against all contenders his right to be considered the originator of the idea pf making a special -class postoffiee an agency for the promotion of pugilism. ...;>.. .Fisk's connection with the San Fran-, cisco postofflce has done more than the commercial activities 1 of Fisk's favorite subordinates to make it stand but in the annals of -the postal service on the Pacific coast. Viewed in the light of a public utility, the San Francisco post office has not proved a startling success under the largely theoretical direction of Fisk. In the matter.of rapid trans formation, of men employed as messen gers and fated "incompetent" into'high salaried clerks and the development of subordinate clerks to that -degree of proficiency whiclr enables -them to hold down the be«t jobs in the local post office without material interference with their management of private com mercial enterprises, Fisk's record is different. He* can point to if withr pride, * - "* - * : '? . . Tbe employment of the special de livery, service as «. 'private commercial and "political ' agency ;is -another- of Fisk's accomplishments. • But -it .is when his administration is considered from I the standpoint of ' a dead game sport" that Fisk is "there with bells." Thanks to Fi.<jk, .San Francisco enjoys the. distinction of being the only city in the I'n-Wed -States which can boast of a bureau for the promotion of'pro fessional pugilism, conducted as an ad junct of a $6,000 a year postoffiee. Others may follow; Fisk leads. When the charges against Fisk which President Roosevelt has. ordered probed ;as a condition precedent to Fisk's confirmation have been investi gated, public curiosity touching the presence of the horde of broken down pports. second rate p\igllists, amateur aspirants for squared ring fame, and ring followers, both black and. white, overrunning tho^ postoffiee corridors may be gratified, Tf not satisfied. The pugilistic persons who lined up in the postoffiee corridors prior to the smashing of the four round fight game combination by the Taylor board of su pervisors did not seek the postoffiee as a shelter' from . Inclement .weather. Neither did they select Uncle Sam's postoffiee as the most desirable and convenient loafing place. Contrary to what may have been the popular .opin ion, they were not loafing. There is no loafing in the San Francisco postofflce under Fisk. Fisk's favorite employes are busy with the management of their private affairs or with Fisk's po litical schemes. The other clerks are kept busy doing the work ; that might be more evenly distributed under a less ''business like" administration. The fight followers ; frequented the postoffiee in quest of their dally bread. Their presence, :to the incopvenience of patrons of the, office, if. not to the de moralization of ; the. : service, \u25a0 was ac counted for by. the presence of a match making bureau conducted in connec tion with " the 4 special delivery service. Frank Sehuler was foreman of the;spe- ; clal delivery division. Fchuler . also was match: maker for, one of. the so called "amateur" clubs engaged In the four round fight game until a board of decent supdrvlsors put the clubs but of business.. Schuler-.is still ".foreman.- of the special delivery ; service , and the* match making business, now. largely , a futurity proposition,", is: one good ;side bet to be relied. upon if the supervisors ever return to a "reasonable" frame bf mind about: "fake": fight: promoters. Schuler also conducted a cigar stand in Mission, street. Either because \u25a0 -he did not care ttrdevote -any of the time not paid for by : Uncle Sam to the "pugs" and the; consequent neglect: of his cigar, business,^ or because he did not think the presence of the mitt art ists at his private place of .business conducive, to ,the Ibest class , ot 1 trade, Schuler did not encourage "match mak ing at the cigar' stand/ The announce ments .preliminary to the launching, of the cigar; business laid stress upon- the opening of a ''first class place by Frank Schuler.:. mateh \ maker/'. .but/ the; fight end of his diversified interests. was con ducted at the , postofflce, where he could devote more time: to s it.
