Dead Engineer Well Known
OAKLAND. Feb. 23.— -A. G. Phipps.
who lost his life in the French camp
wreck, was one of the veteran engineers
in the Southern Pacific employ. Within
n few weeks he would have been eli
gible for pension, having served for
about 30 years, nearly all that time on
Southern Pacific runs.
He was engineer on one of the trains
held up by Sontag and Evans, the cele
brated handits. many years ago, and
has figured in railroad life in this part
of the state since then as rather a
uniquo character. He was one of the
hest known and mo« popular engineers
here. Out of respect to his memory
Leland Stanford division No. 283.
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
to whfrch Phipps belonged, met this
evening and adjourned five minutes
later. A committee was appointed to
take charge of funeral arrangements
for the division.
Phiprxs left a widow, two daughters
and a son. Stanley Phipps. also a
Southern Pacific engineer. He lived at
1044 Magnolia street.
Judge Smith Holds That Fran
chise Claimed by S. P. Is
[Special Dispaich to The Call]
SANTA CRUZ. Feb. 23. — Santa Cruz
won a signal victory over the Southern
P.i< iflc today, when Judge Lucas F.
Smith rendered, his decision in a suit
over the possession of the railroad
wharf and contiguous water frontage.
This case has been hanging fire for
year*. The city denied that the rail
road had any right to the wharf.
Judge Smith holds that the railroad
has no title to the wharf for the reason
that the original franchise was not law
fully s*>curt»d by the i^anta Oruz and
F«-U<-in railroad in 1875. in compliance
with tlif state laws. He said:
"It is clear that the town authorities
had no right to grant sucli a franchise
without complying with the laws of
th*> state, and there is no evidence
here showing or tending to show that
the Santa Cruz and Felton railroad, or
any of its assignees, the other defend
ants herein, evor acquired such a right
undpr the laws of the state."
An aft of congress passed July 23.
1566. and an act of the state legislature
ot 1572 are cited to substantiate the
city's claim to the water front.
"I have carefully examined the said
act of congress, also that of the state
legislature." Paid Judge Smith, "and
I am' fully convinced that they vested
in the city of Santa Cruz a valid legal;
tiTlf to the lands here in controversy." ',
This decision if sustained by higher
courts will entitle the city to the own
ership of th<* wharf, for the judge says,
"Wither ran 1 agree with the counsel
that the action as brought by the plain
tiff is not the proper remedy, for the
reason that the city of Santa Cruz is
the owner of the legal title, and as
such can maintain an action of eject
ment for any infringement of its right
to the premises in question."

Second Degree Murder Verdict
Set Aside and First Degree
Conviction Follows
[Specie/ Dispaich to The Call]
SEW YOKK. Feb. 23.'— Edward F.
McGrath. the- man for whom Supreme
Court Justice Goff recently set aside
a verdict of murder in the second de
gree, was convicted today of murder
in the first degree.
If Robert H. Hibbard, his counsel,
had not made a perfunctory motion for
a new trial on the ground that the
verdict was against the weight of evl
<lm<e, McGrath would have escaped
with a sentence to life imprisonment,
but now he faces the electric chair.
September 6 Benjamin Rose, an old
man living at 411 West Twenty-third
street, was found dead in his room, his
throat cut. The next day McGrath, a
young prizfighter. was arrested wear
ing some of the clothes that had been
taken from the dead man's room.
His attempt to prove that he had
been in Boston at the time of the mur
der was unsuccessful. An interesting
appeal in the case is expected.
Gossip Plans Novel Contest in
Denver's Municipal Campaign
Two Years Hence
DENVER, Feb. 23. — A woman mayor
for Denver.
That is the gossip following last
night's banquet of prominent Denver
women to which no men were admit
ted. The election is two- years off, but
it is whispered that the advisability of
having a woman candidate in the field
— perhaps two of them — was not only
discussed, but was advocated with en
It i» asserted that more women than
men voted In the last municipal elec
tion in Denver; also that women offi
cials who have held office in Colorado
have proved efficient. One of these.
Miss Katherine L. Craig, former state
superintendent of public instruction, is
mentioned as a probable nominee by
the republicans.
The gossips have already settled it
that Mrs. Sarah Platt Decker will be
the democratic nominee for mayor.
Mrs. Dewey C Bailey is recognized as
one of the most influential republican
women of Colorado, but an obstacle ap
peared in the way of her possibility
as a candidate for mayor, as it is said
the republicans are likely to name Mr
Bailey for that office.*

In an Address at Newark the President
Discusses National Finances
v! c t *" ea * vr >" for the present year
$34.0u0.0«m) in respect to ordinary re
ceipts and expenditures. I am glad to
f?i\ I. lhft °P e ration of the new tariff
"111 has been so much more productive
of Income that this deficit for the cur
rent year is lfkely to be considerably
reduced. In addition, however, to the
ordinary deficit we have to add the
Panama canal expenditure for immedi
ate provision of the $38,000,000. "What
«- a o S A/f«« n m , a . ted to be " a total deficit of
*< 2.000.000 is now reduced considerably
?y? y !»?•.. tter rates under the present
tariff bijl.
Panama Canal Expenditures *
By meeting the expenditures on the
Panama caqal with the proceeds of
bond issues "we have enough cash in the
treasury to meet the deficit in our or
dinary expenses for the current year
and if we meet the expenditures on the
Panama canal for the following year
we shall have a surpuls of $35.000|000;
or. If the revenue producing capacity
pf the new tariff keeps up to Its present
indications, this surplus may be in
creased to $50,000,000. On the other
hand, if the congress proposes to add
to the expenditures of the government
over those estimated for new enter
prises in the river and liarbor bill and
for the construction of the federal
buildings under a building act. It will
bo easy to consume or exceed the en
tire surplus. -
Every one must admit the wisdom
of providing for the payment of the
canal expenditure by bonds. This If
a work of a permanent character and
U. seems only fair that that which we
provide in such a generous measure for
posterity should be paid for. In part at
least, by posterity.
Xot only is such a principle just in
the case like the Panama canal, but it
seems to be appropriate to adopt it
with reference to other projects. I re
fer to those definite projects that have
been agreed even" ln respect to the im
provement of our inland waterways.
I would not begin the expenditure of
any money on any project the wisdom
of which had not been fully vindicated;
but having determined to put through
the improvement. It ought not to b»
done by fits and starts,' but It ought to
be done as one Job.
Cost of Big Ditch
While I am dealing with the Pana
ma canal, however, I ought to refer to
the discrepancy between the estimated
cost of the enterprise and the actual
cost as we are now able to fix it with
considerable accuracy within four or
five years of Its completion.
The estimated cost of the engineer
ing and construction of the canal was
$139,700,000. Its actual cost for engin
eering and construction will be $297,-.
000,000, an increase of $157,300,000.
This increase is to be explained, first,
by the great appreciation in the cost
of labor and material since the time
when the estimate* was made in 1900
and the time when the work was done
between 1904 and 1909: second, by the
fact that the canal has been enlarged
substantially beyond the original di
mensions estimated for.^.
The Culebra Cut
You know that the great work of
excavation in the canal is called the
Culebra cut. This is where the back
bone of the continent reduced to low
est height Is cut and through five miles
of that cut, which is about nine miles
long, for purposes of economy, the orig
inal plan and estimate made the bot
tom of the canal in the rock 200 feet
wide. This would not enable two of
the largest steamers to pass each other
with safety.
To avoid delay it has been thought
wise to increase the bottom wicfth from
200 to 300 feet In a place, and in mate
rial that, of course, makes the change
most expensive. So. too. that the canal
may be adapted to largest size of
steamers, the dimensions of the six
locks have been increased from 900 feet
to 1,000 feet usuable length and 110
feet width. This was done at the in
stance of the navy department, which
predicts vessels of a beam exceeding
100 feet.
It has also been found necessary to
change the character of the canal on
the Pacific side from a lake with a dam
and locks on the shore of the bay of
Panama to a sea level canal running
four miles inland, so as to remove the
locks four miles inward and beyond
the possible reach of the guns of an
enemy in Panama bay. These two
changes also have added considerably
to the cost.
Other Expensive Changes
Again, it has been found wise to en
large the cana} into a lake or basin at
the foot of the Gatun locks, and in
whatever variation In the plans which
experience in the construction has dem
onstrated the necessity for the more
than doubling the cost of construction
and engineering has been necessary. In
addition to this, the cost of sanitation
and government, without which the ca
nal could not have been built, will be
about $73,000,000, and will carry the
entire cost of the canal to $373,000,000.
To return to the state of finances I
repeat that the surplus for the year
ending June 30, 1911. for which we are
now making provision in this congress
by appropriation, will be about $35,000,
000, if the estimates made by the de
partments and transmitted by the sec
retary of the treasury to congress are
not exceeded, and If the revenue from
the tariff bill equals that which the
secretary of the treasury has estimated
It as likely to be. This surplus Is also
upon the supposition .that the $38,000.
000 necessary annually In the construc
tion of the Panama canal will b«? met
by bonds.
Paring Down Estimates
. In view of the threatened shortage
for the year ending June 30, 1911, 1
directed the heads of departments •in
making their estimates to cut them to
the quick and to avail themselves of
every possible economy, and reduction.
The result was that the total of the
estimates forwarded by the secretary
of the treasury was" $42,818,000 less
than the total of the appropriations for
the previous year ending June 30, 1910.
Speaking with (reference to the
army and • navy, the reduction is a
postponement onlyof the expenditures
that are necessary until the income
shall be sufficient to meet them. -
Let us take the -war department.
There is needed at the mouth of Chesar
peake bay, between 'Cape Henry and
l^harles, an artificial island' upon the
so called middle ground, which shall
command the entrance to Chesapeake
bay. Chesapeake bay- is: the most. Im
portant body of water. from a strategic
naval standpoint on the 'whole: Atlantic
coast, and it must be defended. .
Great Naval Base
So. too, now we have determined that
the great naval base "of the^ Pacific for
us is to be Pearl harbor, near Honolulu.
For years there was discussion as to
whether we ought to make the naval
base at Sublg bay or at Cavite, in
Manila, bay, in the Philippines.
By unanimous "consent of naval and
military authorities, it;is now conceded
that we do not need a' naval base In
the Philippines at all; that we.ought
to make. Corregldor island, at;-- the
mouth of Manila bay, impregnable^"!es
tablish a naval supply station in Subig
bay. \u25a0 buj. rely upon" the; Sandwich is
lands as our base. -
This will all involve a heavy expendi
ture at Honolulu, but for. the present
the amount provided is comparatively
Bmall. \u25a0
In .the naval expenditures we have
retained a provision for two battle
ships of the large 25,000 ton capacity,
and we have done this on the ground
that, until the Panama canal is com
pleted, we ought to go on and add- to
our naval. Btrength.
: The Panama canal certainlv- wllKb'e
completed in 1915, and if we "have two
battleships a year , until that . time,-* the
opening of the canal -will so double
the- efficiency, of our navy for the-pro
tection of our Pacific and Atlantic
coasts that we can abate * and reduce
our expenditures in new construction.
Billion Dollar Congresses
For some time it has been said that
we have : billion dollar" , congresses
The statement in. itself Is an- unjust
one., because it is generally, construed
to mean that the> total* expensed the
departments to Jbe % paid out % of. taxa
Continued From Page 1
tion amounts to a billion dollars a^
\u25a0 year. This is quite an error, for the
reason that, in. making '.up "the billion
dollars, the expenses tor the postornce
department are always included,
whereas; the expenses of the postoffice
department are not paid for out of the
proceeds of taxes. They are paid, for
out of receipts of . that department,
from the sale of stamps, with the ex
ception of $17,500,000. which was the
excess of the cost of the postoftlce de
partment last year over its receipts.
This therefore, reduces the cost .by
, taxation of. the government each year
to something like $750.000,000. •
"It is now proposed to appoint a con
gressional commission to look. into the
question of a general reorganization
of the departments of the government,
with a view to reducing the expense
of administering the government. .
It has been stated on the floor of]
the senate that it will be possible by
this commission to reduce the cost of
administering the government $100,000.
000 a year, and that, if a \u25a0•free... hand
were given to a businessman the re
duction in the expense of administra
tion might be doubled or tripled. I am
unable to confirm these statements as
to exact amount, but*l am sure that
a conservative, prudent and fearless
commission can make a most material
reduction in the cost of administering
the government.
Civil Service Pensions
It is undoubtedly true today that we
have a great many more persons em
ployed in the government than we
would negd if every person in the
government rendered the government a
service of a high degree of efficiency.
This commission will have to take up
the question, which has troubled great
industrial corporations and great- rail
roads, as to the method of disposing
of superannuated servants. Our mili
tary pensions have reached so large
an annual sum, to wit. $150,000,000 that
we have avoided the suggestion of civil
pensions, but I am^convincod that some
method must be adopted by which su
perannuated civil servants may be re
tired on an income.
It has been reported by the post
master general we are carrying in the
postofflce department the weekly pe
riodicals and magazines at a cost to
that department of upwards of $60,000,
000, and that the business of the gov
ernment in the postoffice department is
run fit aXgeneral loss of $17,500,000.
The committees of congress are inves
tigating. The owners "of magazines
•dispute the correctness of the figures.
Should the two postal committees not
be able to reach a conclusion, the
whole matter may well be left to the
commission. .\u25a0 |
Senator Lodge's Address
Facts, not opinions, are to form the
basis 'on which the senate committee
appointed to inquire into the prices of
commodities and rates of wages will
act." This declaration was . made to
night by Senator Lodge^of Massachu
setts,' chairman of the committee, in
his address.' -•
The speaker, said further that "the
facts will be collected and given with
out any reference to any preconceived
ideas and without any regard as to
what or whom it will help or hurt.
"We shall hew to the line," he said,
"and let the chips fall where they
After outlining in a general way the
method of procedure that the com
mittee will follow he said:
"That combinations^ to control the
sale, of certain articles have In some
instances advanced prices artificially
I have not personally the least doubt,
and'lf I am correct the facts that will
be gathered by the" committee will
demonstrate, and show evils and wrong
doing in certain particular cases that
we ought to be able to reach. , .
"An example of such evils Is to
be found in the case of. meat prod
ucts in the use of cold storage, to
prevent a normal decline of prices,
which your own grand jury has been
investigating. But many causes are
at work affecting prices and we do
not want, to Jump at conclusions or
fancy that we can settle those ques
tions by a stroke of the pen.
As an illustration of the difficulties
that the committee will have to deal
with Senator Lodge took three articles
of wide consumption— -raw cotton, re
fined petroleum and svgar — and made
a comparison of'their change in prices
and of their relation to the tariff and
trust questions.
Cotton, Oil and Sugar -
"Cotton is on the. free list, and has
been for half>a century. It Ms not con
trolled by any trust. Oil has been and
is practically now on the free list and
its sale is almost entirely controlled
by the strongest, best organized and
most relentless trust or, combination of
which we have knowledge. .Sugar is
in the hands of a trust or combination
and is highly protected.. : Neither the
trusts nor the tariff". are present in the
case ". of cotton. ,The trust is present
and the tariff, absent in the case of
oil. Both the tariff and trust control
are present in the case -of sugar.
! "Now let us consider, the facts in
regard to prices of these articles. Tak
ing 100 as the basis in 1899 the advance
in cotton has"^ ranged from 31 to 84
points. It was 59 points higher in
1908 than in 1899 and it is still higher
now. Petroleum, ; starting^ with 100
as the basis in 1899,. has advanced ' 33
points in 10 years. -Sugar jn'the same
time has declined 10 points. . <.'j ;

their deliberations was hot announced.
Telegrams were sent to President
Taft and to Senator Penrose by the of
ficials of the streetcarmen's unions to
day saying:
••Union men on strike.' here offer
services for .operation of mail and
newspaper cars as was done through
out last- strike. < Company refuses to
allow union mento continue to operate
mail cars, and has today forced them
off their mail cars by summary dis
charges. Interference with mall opera
tions, therefore, comes from the com
pany and not from the strikers."
Union men claim that the company
is interfering with the operation of
maij-cars to give it a chance to ask
for federal intervention.
( Advertisements have been inserted in
newspapers by the transit company call
ing for 3,000_ men. This is taken as in
dicating that the company, and the city
are about to make a determined effort
to increase the service. •
There was little talk today of a gen
eral labor strike and such a radical
move is not looked for at present.
There were disturbances at Third
street and Seventh street, caused by the
stoning ;of cars, but the throng was
kept moving by mounted police.
More than 1,000 persons have been ar
rested for rioting and 36 have been in
ducted by the grand. jury.
The stock of window glass.inthe city
suitable for car windows has been ex
hausted and no more broken windows
can be replaced until glass is obtained.
More than 2,000 windows have been
broken. At 9 o'clock this morning the
traction company announced that lt.had

LOOTED OF $144,000
Institution Closed, Probably For
Ever, and Police on Trail
of Book Keeper
BOSTON. Feb. 23.— Following the
discovery that the National City bank
of Cambridge had been looted of
$144,000. the institution was closed to
day, probably forever, by National
Bank Examiner Pepper, acting on be
half of the oontroller of the currency.
Later a warrant was issued for the
arrest of George "W. Coleman, a book
keeper of. the bank, who was last
heard from in Kansas City a few days
af?o. Coleman is charged with embez
zlement. . \u25a0- -

Former Governor John L. Bates, the

Thursday,- and requested Pepper to go
over thebooks. Friday Coleman fled^
and Monday night friends " received a

Mo. This said he would be home to
" The wrecked bank carried deposits

$25,000 REQUIRED
Purchase Price for Armory Site
Must Be Raised by Tues
day Next v
Unless Money Is Secured City
Loses $400,000 Building and
$100,000 Equipment
Unless $25,000 can be raised by next
Tuesday the appropriation mad* by the
state for the new armory building,
amounting to $400,000. will be lost to
San Francisco and with it will go the
promised equipment, worth $100,000,
promised by the United States govern
The; San Francisco real estate board,
rather than see the city suffer this
loss, is making every possible endeavor
to raise the remaining sum and has
sent out calls for a general and popu
lar subscription to meet it.
By the provisions of the federal and
state bills, the city would have to pro
vide the site, the state the building
and the federal government the equip
ment. The state and government are
ready to fulfill their promises, but up
to the present the city has been un
able to secure the money for the pro
posed site which has been chosen at
Bay street and Van Ness avenue.
The site includes an entire block and
that location was picked as being con
venient, to the Presidio and Fort Ma
son, where the coast artillery corps
will have to practice and drill with
the big buns.
- The argument of the real estate
board is that the armory building will
improve the city property generally
and that every property holder should
pay something toward securing the
site. Of :the $100,000 asked for $75,000
has been subscribed.
The time has been extended repeat
edly and next Tuesday will be the last
day. If the city can not produce the
site by that, time the money appro
priated by the state will be returned
to the state treasury.
