PINCHOT TO SEE OLD CHIEF Roosevelt and Deposed Chief Forester Are Expected to Meet at Naples ''MEETING ASKED BY A CABLE FROM KHARTUM Absence From Ballinger Inves tigation Excused on Ground of Much Needed Rest AVOIDS APPEARANCE OF DIRECT SLAP AT TAFT "WASHINGTON. March 22.—Washing ton today woke up to the fact that Gif ford Pinchot, whom President Taft re cently removed from the position of ohit-f forester of the United States, was on the ocean, already four days out on the steamer President Grant, on his "way to meet former President Itoose veit. probably at Naples. Pinchot is due at Hamburg Monday; Colonel Itoosevelt is to arrive at Naples the following' Saturday. The widely current rumor here is that Pinchot goes to meet the returning traveler !n compliar.ee with a summons received by cable Friday. Nobody In a iKjsition to know would either confirm or deny this part of the story. There Is no disposition to deny that Pinchofs principal errand abroad is to meet Roosevelt. Root Involved in Rumors It is t-j be taken for granted the former president will receive from the deposed chief forester, with whom he tvas on peculiarly intimate terms. \u25a0 his iirsi direct information bearing on the Hallinger-Plnchot controversy from any <-f the principals in that dispute. \u25a0^'it was rumored here today that Sen »!:«.!• Root, a member of the investi gating committee and secretary of state In the Roosevelt cabinet, had written- lo Roosevelt at Khartum on the subject. Senator Root v.-ould not talk about the niatter, and no confirmation of the rumor was obtainable from any other pource. If it were true, it might af ford at least a partial reason for the eupposed cablegram to Pinchot. Pinchofs friends here scoff at the (suggestion tha.t he would quit, the In vcstlgation of the controversy In •which he is so deeply concerned on the eve ««f Secretary Ballanger's testimony in order to -seek an uninvited inter view with the. former president. Slap at Administration? * On the other hand, those who know .Itoosevelt say that he is too good a politician not to realize that to give Pinchot a" unsought hearing before he h<id had an opportunity to discuss the matter with President Taft or some member of his political family would lie 'generally regarded as a direct slap et an administration he would natur ally feel bound to support. Pinchot slipped away from Washing ton Quietly Friday evening and next day sailed from New York for ' Eu rope. His absence on Saturday from the Ualllnger-Pinchot hearing, at which lie has been a. constant attendant, at tracted little attention, though he had not intimated to his associates that he intended to go away for a long trip. Trip Undertaken Suddenly TfeociaK K. Shipp.secretary of the Na tional Conservation association, of •which Pinchot is president, said today that the former forester had "gone to for a "much needed vacation." JJe said that Plnchot's side of the case had practically all been presented, and lie felt it was an opportune time for him to go away. He admitted that Pinchot had made tip his mind about the trip rather sud denly, but lie professed to know noth ing of the reported Roosevelt-Pinchdt meeting. He did not attempt to deny that Pinchot might see his former chief before ho returned to the United States. Feels Need of Vacation I^ater Mr. Shipp issued the following formal statement:- Mr.. Pinchot sailed for Europe on the President Grant of the Ham burg-American line last Saturday . iftrrnoon. He will go to Copen hagen. Denmark, where he will visit his sister. Lady Johnston. Mr. Pin' hot has been working hard and felt that a vacation for a while would do him good. Ido not know when he will return. He has engagements in the United States early In May. The only address Pinchot left behind Jiim at bis Washington residence was Copenhagen, and a-- large number of letters and telegrams are being for warded to him there in care of his Kister. The former forester's mother occom ,/»S r ied Wni to New York, but remained there at the home of herJ other son, \u25ba Amos R. Pinchot. His private secre tary remained behind. He* also - de-:' clared that Pinchot was simply going Continued on \u25a0 l'agc : 2, Column 4 The San Francisco Call.

S. Fraser received the immunity bath of a suspended sentence. When the grand jury adjourned for the day just, before 5 o'clock, it had returned no indictments, although it had listened for hours to developments in the bribery scandal even more sen sational than those brought out yester day. Men admitted selling their honor for from ?50 up. Cvv^ John F. Klein was before the grand jury the greater part of the day and continued his narrative of counoilmanic graft. Klein. recounted some of his ex periences In handing out the^ money to the councihnen. Demanded the Dime "There was one fellow," he said, "who was a daisy — a regular Shylock for the dough. In the South Seventh street business I hamlid him $81. He looked at me for a full minute and then yelled like a stuck pig for the extra 10 cents. You know, 581^10 was the standard price in that deal. Well, he got the'lO cents all right." * District Attorney Blakeley, as soon as the councilmen bribe askers have been rounded up. will go after the bribe givers. These • are said to be bank officials whose names .have, never heretofore been mentioned in connec tion with the graft probe of the last two years. Promise Bankers the Bath The "tip" has been passed to! these bankmen that they may come under the "immunity" proposition extended by the district attorney, but as they liavc thus far failed to avail themselves of the opportunity, it is reported that some bombshells will be dropped Into the social structure of Pittsburg when county detectives "turn the money changers" out of "their own temples" and bring them before the bar of jus tice.. ; \u25a0\u0084.. . '.-\\ There is a feeling that what has been accomplished thus far is but a scratching of the surface. ' What one hour may develop, no one is able . to foresee. Even the district attorney is frank in his expression that he "can't tell what will happen." , Twenty have confessed, 37 have been indicted but have t not yet confessed, and 16 have been implicated but have not' yet been indicted/- It. is said at the district attorney's office that be fore the grand jury is dismissed fully 100 persons will be implicated. ; These will include not only the bribed but the bribers. Confession or Cell Yesterday and today Klein, still in the district attorney's office, • worked the telephone overtime trying to get William. Brand, former president of common councils, to come forward and tell his story. Brand was to have gone to the penitentiary, but his incarcera tion was deferred, partly because of the! illness of a daughter and partly in the hope that he would confess. Klein also telephoned Joseph C. Was son, who entered the penitentiary Mon day. Wasson was permitted, to "an swer the telephone by- Warden John Francles. When the district attorney appeared unexpectedly at. his office to night he announced that' he had re ceived a complete statement from Wasson. . . ' "It eoversmore in. detail . than that of Klein and names somebig ones," he said.

George W. Sutler and J. E. Rogers of Minneapolis are in San Francisco, and negotiations for the sale of the vast holding may be closed within a few days. Butler arrived in San Francisco Mo nday night and registered at the St. Francis hotel. In his party is Mrs. Jo seph Woods of St: Paul, who is said to be interestedin a company that Is to be formed 'for colonization ; purposes. Frank Drum; the manager of the Teyis and Haggin estates, said yesterday that he had conferred with Butler and that the latter had been over the Rancho del Paso, but' that negotiations had not been closed for the sale of the property. The old Spanish grant, which is now the property- of Millionaire James B. Haggin, is famous for its race horses. The property consists of 44,000 acres of rich bottom land lying . north of the American river, and is one of the larg est and most valuable single holdings left in California, The Tevis and Hag gin holding of 500,000 acres in Kern county : ranks it In size, • however, be ing second, only to the Miller &N& N Lux holdings. . • t Two years ago the Haggin grant north of Sacramento was put on the market and therfe were several ru mors of its sale. At. that, time It was valued at $1,500,000, but 'the price now asked, it Is said, is nearer $2,500,000. Butler represents- a syndicate of St. Paul .capi talists, whose intention is said to be to subdivide the land into small tracts for settlement.. . . •'- - "I havc,met^Butler," said.Drum yes terday, "and. he has gone over the Hag gin grant, but no sale has as yet been agreed^uponJ ] \ ln^fact,; no nego tiations have -been started, although we have 'discussed the matter."

VACCINATION LAW UNCONSTITUTIONAL Santa Cruz Superior Judge De= cides Statute Is "Class ' Legislation" [Special Dispatch to The Call] * SANTA CRUZ, March 22.— 1n a sweep- Ing decision handed down today, in which he denied the petition of the state board "of health for a writ of man date excluding from the public schools of_ Watsonville all scholars not vacci nated in compliance with the state law. Judge T^ucas P. Smith declared the law unconstitutionaJ. He held that the statute was contrary to the constitution because it exempted from its provisions all children attending private schools, together with all persons not attending any school, and for that reason it was class legislation. \u25a0 • "Such discriminating laws," says Judge; Smith, "have been held to be unconstitutional and void by some of the most learned. judges and courts in this country." ' In the decision exception is taken to the point raised by Attorney J. K. Gard ner, for the state board that parents who do not believe in vaccination can send their children to private schools and thus avoid tho consequences of the penal statute. Judge Smith said:. \u25a0 "It is an old and fundamental prin ciple of justice that all criminal laws should operate alike upon all classes of people, whether they be rich or poor. Arich man could send 'his children to a private school., as suggested/by the attorney for the state board of -health, and thus avoid being arrested and pun ished under said; penal statute, but shouldithe poor man be punished as a criminal because he is unable to send his - children to a private* school' and does not believe in vaccination, and for that reason his, children be barred from attending the public schools?: Such an interpretation of the two statutes would work a great injustice to a large class of people." .. ,• Smith holds that trustees are the gole judges \u25a0 as to when .such a , law should be enforced, and. that; they. are perfectly right; in not, enforcing its; provisions unless circumstances' demand it, which they do ;not in" this, case," there bing x no epidemic. . .

[Special Dispatch to The Call] SANTA BARBARA, March 22.— Voicing the most kindly sentiments for San • Diego, praising its pluck, its energy, and even its persistency, the worlds fair conference decided without dissent this afternoon that the exposition of 1915 belonged to San Francisco. There was no bitterness. There was no malice. ."We admire San Diego's persistency," said C. C. Moore in behalf of San Francisco, "but, God knows, we condemn her judgment." ' SAN FRANCISCO UNANIMOUSLY INDORSED Those who had looked for a division that would reopen healing wound 3 of sectional differences were disappointed. When the name of San Diego Va3 called in the roll of counties, and no representation answered for the ambi tious community of the south, men from the north responded in sympathetic spirit for the absent delegation. San Diego and some of the neighbors remained away. But from Los Angeles north practically every county in, California answered the summons and cast its ballot for San Francisco. William Garland, president of the Los Angeles realty board, brought the mes sage from his city that 90 per cent of the people there advocated the claims of San Francisco. Garland's speech was the most dramatic of the day. He faced the 125 delegates with several telegrams in his hand. The position of Los Angele3 was in doubt The chamber of commerce of that city, which had previously indorsed San Diego, sent no representative. COMPROMISE WITH SAN DIE GO SUGGESTED But Garland spoke for -the other commercial bodies and pledged the city' 3 aid to San Francisco's cause. Then he disclosed the contents of the telegrams. There had been an interchange of messages with San Diego at the last moment in the hope that a basis for a compromise might yet be found. On behalf of himself and his Los Angeles colleagues Garland had wired: "Sincerely desiring to assist San Diego a compromise is . suggested and delegates from Los Angeles propose a proportionate division of state • appropriation based on respective amounts subscribed, San; Francisco to advertise your enterprise, you*' to waive federal appropriation and recogni tion; fleets to assemble in San Diego according to the Kahn bill. Believe this is only way fair can be saved to California." To this the San Diego exposition committee sent the following reply: "Impossible to consider compromise suggested. Wajiave late advices from Washington which show conclusively that New Orleans has no '.possible chance for securing congressional aid or recognition at this v session of ; congress. We are willing to submit to our people and believe that we can carry through a compromise which will give us a propor tionate share'of state and .federal appropriations, with federal recognition •and federal invitation to other countries to exhibit in either San Francisco • v ; or ' San Diego or both." AID FOR SAN DIEGO ,v Although the state support, as expressed at today's conference, was assured San Francisco, steps are to be taken to offer assistance to San Diego^ in any enterprise.it may undertake which will not injure the big exposition. A -committee* was named: to act: as a permanent body to advance the San Francisco * project by ; treating further with San Diego, if necessary. This committee; held a special session tonight and decided to acquaint San Diego with; the result of today's conference and to inform the members of congress of 'the, action .taken today., j On. this special committee were placed: Frank Short -of Fresno., chairman; Max Meyburg of Los Angeles.
