The crucial point In the situation promises to develop tomorrow. The cora l'j-iy. it is understood, will attempt to ptait tars on the regular schedule, and if the police do not give adequate pro tection will demand that the mayor for ivard to the governor a request for Th^ 'general strike order by President Murphy today may also materialize. C. O. Pratt, national organizer for the Btreetcar men, aft^r his relase on bail today held a «onference with President Murphy, at which he is reported to have urged the expediency of a general strike, but Murphy at the close of the conference said that he still believed a p^nexal strike inevitable. Of the 200,000 or more members of labor unions in this city 30,000 already have voted to R« on strike, according to the secre te :y of the central labor union. Wheth «\u25a0:\u25a0 Irsdcrs who are opposing a general strike will be able to defer a walkout tomorrow is problematical. / A «le!'-cution of labor leaders left for Washington this afternoon to urge Sen ator Penrose to use his influence to ward a peaceful settlement. Conductor Badly Hurt A nonunion conductor was badly hurt :u Sixth and Market streets late this nft<rnoon when a cf"owd attacked his car after a boy had pulled the trol ley pole from the feed wire. Police irsrn drove, back the crowd at the point of revolvers and started the- car. It 'ad gon<- but a short distance when a jieavy iron weiphi thrown from a win dow crashed through the roof of the vehicle. Two badly frightened women in the car were not hurt. President Murphy, the head of the centra! labor union, could hardly con- ; tain himself in his indignation against the city officials for taking Pratt into custody. The rumor that a warrant is ready to be served on Murphy Is still current. Police officials have nothing to say concerning this. Murphy said he had heard the rumor of the issuance of a warrant for him and declared he was ready for it at any time. • "They can serve it whenever they wnnt to." he said, "and the response of the union workmen will bm swift and sure."

This is alfcb t!:«i declaration of the union. Th<- pres<nt situation in Philadelphia mu*t not be forgotten. The president of the central labor union, Tklurphy, was !»*t fall a candidate for city treas urer on the ticket of the William Perm party, the reform organization, that has made bitter war on the dominant political organization in Philadelphia. Murphy was badly defeated at the polls. Politics has also played a part in the management of the street rail way system, the local leaders taking active interest in it. Brigadier General Wendell Plow man, commander of the First brigade. national guard of Pennsylvania, and Hmry Clay, director of the department of public safety, went into conference at 11 o'clock this morning. As they disrussed yesterday the advisability of having the troops ready .for Instant call, it is presumed their conference today had to do with the same sub ject. All the theater* keenly feel the effect of the stoppage of street railway traffic. With nn streetcars at night the people remain at home and the theaters are consequently not half filled. The tran sit company issued the following state ment today: "We are operating more cars»than at the same time yesterday. We have /not lost a man, but have 2.400 loyal employes. We are not employing any strike breakers and have not done so." NONUNION MEN MUTINY Mutiny which broke out among the nearly 300 nonunion men kept by the transit company in the trolley barn at Forty-third street»and Lancaster ave nue, early today, resulted in a pitched battle with a squad of 50 Fairmont park guards doing police duty. The disturbance was caused, it is said, be cause most of the men wanted positions as conductors and were dissatisfied when ordered to do duty a« motormen. In order to deprive mobs, of effective ammunition Mayor Reybufn has or dered the inspectors in the bureau of buildings to notify every builder in the city to remove all building materials from the highways. The shooting of the boys was re ported at 8 o f ciock from . Kensington, in the northeastern part of the city', the great mill district of Philadelphia! A crowd of youths lay in wait for a car, and as it passed they hurled a shower of stones. The policemen opened fire with revolvers and two boys were wounded. Both were taken to a hospital. The incarceration of C. O. Pratt, na tional organizer of the amalgamated association of street and electric rail way employes and leader of the strik ere, hae brought about the ugliest kind GOMPERS THINKS CARMEN WILL WIN THEIR STRIKE [Special Dispatch fr The Call] SEW YORK, Feb 22. — Presi dent Samuel GompWs of the American federation of labor came to this city, today to try to harmonize some of the unions in the building trades which are having jurisdictional disputes. • -Speaking of the strike of the trolleymen in Philadelphia, he said that while it was ordered without his sanction, now that it is 'on he believes that it ought to \u2666c fought by the men to a finish; furthermore, ho believes that the strikers will win. "The strike," he- said, "is the 'outcome of efforts on the part of 'the Philadelphia rapid transit company to destroy the union. Four weeks ago I offered the ,*?rvices of ! the officers of the American federation of labor to the company and the men in an effort to reach a settlement, but the offer- was declined by the company. The strike was foVced by the company in order to crush the union out of existence. In ~~^~*> l_^ ' of feeling between the strikers and sympathizers and police authorities, and tension Is at fever heat. DKTKCTIVBS OX TRAIL Pratt was taken into custody last night on .-^charge of "inciting to riot.'^" Detectives had been on his trail since the. strike began last Saturday, but did not get evidence until yesterday afternoon, when a riot occurred in front of the hall in which he was ad dressing the strikers. Detectives in the crowd immediately reported to Di rector Clay of the department of public safety, with the result that a warrant was sworn out. The day opened foggy and a 1a 1 heavy rain falling, and despite these' condi tions the cars carried only a small percentage of their usual number of passengers. Every car operated car ried at least two policemen. The police force has been augmented to approximately 5,000 men. The extra men, who have been dubbed "Brownies," were recruited from the guards of Fairmount park, the several city prisons, bridge watchmen and em ployes from various city bureaus. The authorities have been assured by the national guard commanders that the entire division of the state militia, numbering 10,000, is at the service of the city. Speaking of the situation- and the probable callijjg out of troops. Mayor' Reyburn said*" WILL PROTECT PUBLIC "Though we think ive will be able to cope with the situation we are not going to he caught. We ! want the public to be assured that p ,'cry step is taken for its protection, that the pub lic has the right toride in cars if they wish it, and to ride peaceably." \u25a0 It is estimated that there were 300 persons treated in the emergency wards of the various hospitals yesterday. While the destruction of the property of the transit company yesterday did not reach the proportions of that of Sunday, the temper and determination of the strike sympathizers was every where manifest. There was rioting in all sections of the city. - Mayor Reyburn today said that he had not contemplated closing the sa loons. Thus far the drinking places, he su.d, had given.no trouble. Not one of those arrested for rioting, he added, was under the ipfluence of liquor. ' '.We are prepared for any emer gency," he said. "It the labor people who sympathize with the 5.000 strikers decide to quit work that is their right, but whether the public will quietly sub mit to it is another question." OFFICER OF NAVY DIES OF SMALLPOX Ensign Griffiths of the Cruiser Washington Succumbs at Port I nwti^Ptin PORT TOWNSEXD, Wash., Feb. 22. — Ensign Philip C Griffiths, aged 25, an officer of the armored cruiser "Washing ton, died at the Diamond Point quaran tine station this afternoon of smallpox. Ensign Griffith's home was in Palo Alto, Cal.. where his mother now lives. He had been in the navy since 1903. This is the fourth death from small pox among- the crew of the Washing ton since the cruiser returned from Honolulu. The quarantine on the Washington was raised today, but the vessel will remain at the» station an other week before proceeding to the navy yard for docking and repairing. Three members of the crew are still confined at the isolation hospital. DISPUTE OVER MAN WHO FIRST GUMMED STAMPS Papers Disagree and .PJiilatel >; ists Say Chalmers' Who inTcnted the |)ostnfre stamp?- A writer In Chambers' Journal says that tbe Inrentor of the "adhesive postage stamp" wbh nndobntedly Row land' Hill. In 1537 he proposed the ÜBe of "a bit of par>w Just large enough to b«ar the xtamp and covered at the back irlth' a glutinous wash, which the bringer might, by the application of a little moisture, attach to the back of the let- j ter." A correspondent of .the . Westminster Gazette points out. however, that the Idea was that of JaniPK ChalnierM, a native of Arbroath. Chalmers, who was born In 1772, conceived tbe Wen of an inlhoMv* stamp for postal purposes In 1534, the time wl fti tl;e agitation for postal reform was going on. In. 1837 .lit* plan was laid before a select committee of. the house of commons, and In a treasury minute of December 20, 1830. will t* seen nn order for the Issue of ' the Mulready envelope and the adhesive stamp. The former was a failure, while the latter turned out a complete success. The chief philatelic "societies of the world have investigated Chalmers' claim and admit tbat he was the sole inventor.

Local officers of the American ' federation of labor said that noth-^ ing could be gained by calling sympathetic strikes in this city. Hugh Frayne, general organizer, who was in Philadelphia during the last trolley strike there, had a talk with Gompers today. When he was, seen later he said that he did not think' the unions here would be asked to strike in sym pathy. . "As' far as moral support and financial aid are concerned," 'he said, "the unions here will cheer fully give ail that is necessary, I «but I don't believe that it will he considered necessary to draw •-' them into the Philadelphia strike. I have been in Philadelphia since the present strike began, and there is no doubt that the strike was provoked by the company in order to break up the union." OPPOSES RAILWAY AND SHIP COMBINE William R. Wheeler Cites Own ership of Pacific Mail as Stifling Competition WASHINGTON, Feb. 22.— William R. Wheeler, former assistant sec retary of the department of com merce and labor, now manager of the trafflc\bureau'of the Merchants' asso ciation of San Francisco, closed the I public hearings on the administration railroad measure before the house com mittee on interstate commerce today. Wheeler m,ade an- argument in favor of a clause prohibiting: railroads from owning stock in competing water car riers. He cited the instance of the ownership of the Pacific Mail steam ship. line by the Harrima'n interests, which, he said, had the result of Etifling all opposition to the trans continental railroads by way of. the isthmus of Panama. . ' The basis for the bill that will be reported by the hpuse committee is the administration measure, but Chair man Manh will urge that features of his bill,- not included in the adminis tration measure, be Inserted in it. The Mann bill omits the proposed court of commerce. No report will be made on the bill within three weeks. Hearing Before Senators Several hours were again devoted by the senate committee on . interstate commerce today to listening to Attor ney General Wickersham expound his views concerning amendments to the | interstate commerce law. Members of the committee were so much interested in what he had to say that they invited him to come back again tomorrow. It is not expected that the bill will be reported until late* in the week. • Every phase of the railroad rate question touched on by the adminis tration measure is receiving attention, j and practically all members of the committee have taken part in the ex amination of the attorney general. Supporters and opponents of the bill alike "agree that Wickersham's views will be helpful in debate after the bill Is reported to the senate.- While a majority of the committee will vote to report the administra tion bill with few changes, it is prob able tliat Senators Cummins and Clapp, and perhaps one or two democratic members,' may dissent and bring in the Cummins bill as a minority report. Conspiracy Is Denied \ PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 22.— That the Lehigh Valley railroad is in a con spiracy to stifle competition by raising coal prices was denied ; today in the United States circuit court by Frank \ H. Platt of New York, one of the com i pany's attorneys. He declared that whatever combina tion of anthracite coal carrying rail roads existed was simply to aid trade and benefit the public. . , v Platt's argument was in, answer to 'a strong arraignment of the so called coal trust by James C.Mcßeynolds, spe cial attorney for the government, who declared that six railroads had con spired in a \u25a0 twofold way to suppress competition in the anthracite region. Through the Temple iron company they controlled much of the output of coal, and, by tying up Independent opera tors, by ' the "65 per cent contract" they took away the last hope of rea sonable prices. Knapp Corrects Report In the opinion of Chairman Knapp of the interstate commerce commission and of his associates on that body, do mestic freight rates are freer from un just discriminations and more satisfac tory in general than" they ever were be fore. ' \u25a0 ,~ . This fact was made clear in the tes timony of Chairman Knapp before the house and senate committees, but an erroneous impression of the chairman's attitude has been "publißhedV This is corrected in a statement which he made today, as follows: " , „» . "The report in many papers of a col loquy between \u25a0 the chairman of the house committee and myself on Satur- ' day entirely misrepresents .what oc-_ curred. The question askedme by- Mr. Mann, to which I gave an: affirmative reply, in substance,' related solely to import rates, which are generally less atid on some articles from some ports materially less than domestic rates from* the same .ports on the same ar ticles. -.;.\u25a0/ w. ; \u25a0; •\u25a0\u25a0- '\u25a0'' \u25a0\u25a0_ :.',-\u25a0 "The best W to deal with this situation is a problem of great diffi culty.

The ministry, Churchill said, would regard the- destruction of the Irudget as a mortal blow. They attached an importance to it second only to that of the veto bill. They would further regard Its defeat as a vindication of the unconstitutional action of the house of commons. Abolish Absolute Veto The government, he continued, was bound to bring to a final issue its pol icy of 1 dealing with the house of lords and for the abolition of the absolute veto power of the second chamber. If there were to be a crisis and deadlock, however, they could not come too soon. The policy of the government was to place the proposals before the house, so that the decision of the members might be taken thereon. . James Keir Hardie, president of the independent labor . party, protested against any attempted reconstruction of the house of lords, as the laborites, he said, did not believe merely in de stroying the veto power of the lords, a relic of feudalism and an insult and outrage upon democracy. . But, as the labor party could not get its own way, they would accept the second best course and support the governmentpin getting rid of the jveto. He hoped that the government would make the passage of the budget con tingent upon the veto bill going through, and he urged the government to refuse the supply as a means of forcing the lords to agree to the aboli tion of their own power of veto. TELLS SOME MISTAKES OF PUBLISHING .FIRMS Chapman & Hall Refused to Publish "East Lynne" Publishers, like other people) some times make mistakes. R. Cochrane, in the Book Monthly, recalls some famous examples. George Mereditn, as publish er's reader to Chapman and Hall, gave an opinion .emphatically against the ac ceptance of Mrs. Henry Wood's "East L.ynne." The loss caused by this has been es timated at £30,000 to this publishing firm, and of the connection, presuming that they had issued her other novels, at £100.000. James Payn declined "John Inglesant," as reader for Smith, Elder & Co., and it became a valuable literary property in the hands of Macmillan & Co: -Edna Lyall's "We Two" was re jected by half a dozen publishers. A publisher's reader pronounced W. Clark Russell's "Wreck of the.'Grosvenor'" a catalogue of ship's furniture. It is the boast, of Hall Came that no novel of his has been hawked from publishing house to publishing house. 'G.R. Sime records that a»short story of his, "A Pleasant Evening," was declined by the Family Herald. Chambers' Journal, and All the Year Round. Rider Haggard's "Dawn" was declined by five or six pub lishers. When Norman McLeod was editor o.f Good Words, he arranged with a popular novelist- for a serial w.hicti on reading he found unsuitable. The pub lisher, Alexander Strahan, agreed in this verdict, and paid the forfeit of £500, returning the MS. to its author, An thony Trollope. BRITISH FASHION TENDS TO ABOLISH MUSTACHE Practice of Wearing Beards Is Traced to Crimean War ils the mustache about .to disappear, from the faces of the mujorlt? of the population of these islands? asks the Westminster Gazette. It al most looks as if-fashinn was tending lv that di rection — at 'least.' Judging- from one's acquaint ances. The Mitigate Monthly directs attention to the history of this peculiar hirsute adornment, aftd tells us that the reais are not far rifntnnt wbeu the directors of the- Bank of England issued j an order for the clerks not to wear mustaches 1 durlnt; buslne** hours. . /fhls remarkable order afforded the public so much amusement that It was «^»>n canceled.

Tue prejir^; diet-, extended to the liberal professions. Bar risters had a long fight for. the mustache, and today it is not largely .worn as U*^ other pro fessions. The bjshops in most Instances opposed it, and at the present time mustaches "are not popular, more especially among the hlsh church party. In 1802 quite a" sensation was caused ', when.it became known thnt the then archbishop of York did not approve of the mustache among; the clergy. * ... \u25a0...." ! It was about 1855 that the beard mnrement took' hold* of the Kngllsu people. The Crimean war had much to do with it. The British sol diers were permitted to forego the use •of the razor, as the- hnlr on the fac<\ protected- them from the cold and attacks of neuralgia. • About this period only one civilian of 'position, in Eng- , land had the hardihood to- wear a. mustache. was George !F.

A candidate on one occasion received an Intimation from the leader of his party that his mustache might prejudice him, ln the eyes of the rural population. The candidate replied that he was "determined to face It out." . .--- FEW CHANGES SEEN IN WOLFE'S NATIVE VILLAGE Conditions Practically -Same as When. General Was a Boy,;. \u25a0\u25a0.

MOUNTAIN MURDER VICTIM IDENTIFIED Recognized as Rose v McKay, Employed in Mill Valley as Domestic \u25a0 \u25a0 • \u25a0 -\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 •\u25a0\u25a0 f Police on Trail of the Dead Woman's Companion, Who *\u25a0' Mysteriously Vanished Continued From Paste 1 and had 1 come to Eureka. Here she married a man named McKay, she said. She met Tunsi, who had. conducted a saloon in Eureka, and. left with him, coming to San. Francisco. ; Charles A.; Mitchell, formerly em ployed at the Rochdale grocery com pany's store in Mill Valley, throws ad ditional light on the woman's' history. / "She was employed at the store as a dejicatessen cook," Mitchell- said yes : terday, "but she remained there only two weeks, during the latter part of June, 1908, and was then '/discharged for drunkenness. - Tunsi often called at the store to' see. the ..woman, coming from the Tuttle home \u25a0 near by, and often they went out, together. Once they remained away a whole day. They quarreled frequently, and Tunsi seemed to want the .woman to stop drinking." I. Minetti, proprietor of the Swiss American hotel in Broadway, where the two remained, for. about 8 months after the fire, living as man and wife, will ingly told all he knew concerning the couple. .' '. j \u25a0\u25a0' ."Tunsi said that he met the girl in 1 Covelo, Mendocino county," Minetti said yesterday. "Then fhey came to Eureka, and lived there together about a year. They sometimes quarreled very violently," for -Tuns!" had a very violent temper. 'v " . "After they Went to Mill Valley to work for the Tuttles they often came here to dance, and sometimes they stayed over Sunday at the hotel. Tunsi had. two -trunks here, and in July, 1908, he came over one day, got the trunks and left, saying that he and the woman had quarreled . and separated, and that he was going back to Switz erland." * The authorities have not been* able to trace the trunks. Minetti says, a truck drawn by two hordes, onea bay and one white, called for the trunks. "The actionsof Tunsi in getting the trunks away so mysteriously has add ed to my suspicions in regard to him," Sheriff W. P. Taylor of Marin county said last night. "The fact that he slipped away in July and has never been seen since that time is another point against him. Mrs. Tuttle's iden tification of the watch, the charm and the waist, among other points, makes it certain that Miss McKay, or Mrs. McKay, as she might have been,, was the woman whose body was found oi» Tamalpais. The work before us is to find Ttmsi. . "Another link in the chain of evi dence against Tunsi is the fact that he told the men at the Swiss-American hotel that he and the woman had quar reled and separated. Now he told Mrs. Tuttle that the woman had disap peared, he did not know where, and seemed to be. relieved about it." Miss- McKay is described by Mrs. Tuttle as having been about 5 feet 4 inches in height. She weighed about 130 pounds, had a large Waist, rather flat chest and somewhat narrow hips. She was rather prepossessing. She wore number 6 shoes. Her nose was rather sharp and her chin pointed. Her abun dant hair was dark brown with streaks of gray, although she was palpably yet in her twenties. Coroner Sawyer is now soaking the dead girl's hair in water to remove the dye stained on its from the dress, to see of gray in the hair will be found. Tunsi. is about 5 feet 11 inches in height. His face is thin, his com plexion sallow and his keen eyes a blue gray color. Up weighs about 160 pounds. He\ has a dark brown mus tache and dark brown hair. Tunsi dresses neatly and suually wears a dark brown, hat. His features are sharp. • '.'Aside from the absolute identifica tion made by Mrs. Tuttle," Sheriff Tay lor said yesterday, "we have this fact to. show that the McKay, or Tunsi. woman was the victim. She had a quantity of clothes in those two trunks in the Swiss-American hotel, as she told Mrs. Tuttle, and as the hotelmen testify.

"TWO TRIES AND A SNEEZE" HIS NAME Chinese at Berlin University Is Aptly Described Tsa Tshun Tshou is the name of a young Chinaman who received the de gree of doctor of laws at the Berlin university last month. Only once be fore has. a similar honor been bestowed by that institution on a native of the Celestial empire. The new lawyer has been/ a resident of Berlin since 1906, speaks German. fluently, and his thesis, "Reforms in China In keeping with European conditions," written in Ger man, was highly commended. The New York Tribune adds: An American at the. university, in a humorous article, refers to Tsa' a, name as "two tries and a sneeze." The probability that John Parrott and Miss Abbey Parrott may visit this city has caused a pleasant flutter of expec tation among the friends of the attrac tive girl, who hope that the plans will not be changed. The travelers are in New York, and there is an uncertainty about their visit here. If they come they will arrive some time next month. Mrs. Parrott remained at the chateau in Vevey, Switzerland.
