May Call Out Troops '
Director of Public Safety Clay said to
night that should outside assistance be
required lie would ask for the state
vonstabulnr^v before calling for state
militia. Ho exjm-psed himself as satis

handled the mobs up to "date.

of the, various city departments and de

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

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."
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.

[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.
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*"
"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."

Local officers of the American

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

I have been in Philadelphia since

there is no doubt that the strike

order to break up the union."
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. A section of the Mann bill, which
was then under discussion, in. s effect
prohibits import or jexport rates flower
than domestic rates "to or from the
same port and I was endeavoring to
show that this plan would be unwise
a^Jd ought not to; be adopted. \ Some
members of the committee thereupon
mentioned- instances of extreme dispar
ity between" import and' domestic rates
on the same articles. , Mr. Mann then
said that\the situation was Intolerable,
and asked^ mp, if 'I did not think sot
: and I replied as *above stated. '
"All thishad nothing whatever to do

than they ever were before." - •

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.
Chapman & Hall Refused to

Publishers, like other people) some
times make mistakes. R. Cochrane, in

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.
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. Hull was one of the earliest
towns In which the mustache was worn among '
policemen— the watch-: committee passing a reso- <
lution in ISSO permitting them to "'wear a beard j
and a*^ mustache If they think fit."
\u25a0 The head of a leading firm of drapers In Re- ;
gent street -.refused at one time to employ a
shopinnn who wort- a mustache or those who
parted their hair down the middle. 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. Muntz,' member of - parlia- i
ment for Birmingham. "The enlightened electors,
however, did not take kindly to the bearded poli
tician. 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." . .---

*\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

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. Now if she had merely left -she
would have secured some of thosw
clothes — come over to San Francisco
and got them out of the trunks. But
she did not do so; she was lying'dead
on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais."

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.
