Accessibility of Hetch Hetchy
cport Changes Water
City's Case Will Be Presented in
Washington by Long, Mc-
Carthy and Manson
The decision of Secretary Ballinger
that San Francisco may now have
access to the report of the engineers,
\u25a0which he has endeavored to construe
as a basis for the revocation of the
Hetch Hetchy permit, has- placed an
entirely new complexion upon the
. water situation. It is felt in admin
istration circles that the city's posi
tion has been greatly strengthened by
the latest turn of affairs. The view
is taken that the claims of this city
are predicated entirely upon reason
and law and that th«* position of the
city is practically impregnable.
It was feared that with an unpub
lished report reposing in a secret al
cove Ballinger could do about as he
chose in regard to the questioned per
mit. With all the facts in evidence,
however, and a full hearing upon the
merits of the issue, there is little fear
among local officials that the privi
leges heretofore bestowed can with
Justice be taken from San Francisco.
There has been a lurking suspicion that
the case has been programed against
San Francisco. However, the opinion
prevails that an open presentation of
ihe facts will nullify the opposition.
City Engineer Marsden Manson was
greatly pleased v when he learned that
BalHngfT had removed the ban of se
crecy from the engineer's reports. He
at once wired to Judge Stockslager,
who has been acting for San Francisco
at Washington, requesting an imme
diate resume of the documents. This
should reach Manson within a day or
In the meantime City Attorney Long
•will be compelled to alter the brief he
has been preparing to submit on be
half of the city. He had been proceed
ing on the theory that the reports in
Washington would not be placed at his
disposal. Even with the change In at
titude on the part of Secretary Bal
linger it is felt that the city has been
placed at a disadvantage..
From now on the city's case will be
prepared as rapidly as possible. The
delegation to "Washington as at present
planned will consist of Mayor Mc-
Carthy. City Attorney Long and City
F-iigineer Manson.
The hearing will be held before the
department of . the interior on May 5.
£!more Leffingwell, secretary to the
mayor, said yesterday that it was Mc-
Carthy's intention to go to Washington
on the Hetch Hetchy mission if his
health would permit. The mayor will
.address himself to the general features
\u25ba'f the project. Manson will deal with
the engineering aspects, and Long will
handle the legal end.
Although there has been no official
communication from the national cap
ital disclosing the nature of the data
that appear to have had such sudden!
\u25a0w-fight with Secretary Ballinger, it is
believed here that the arguments were
based upon the theory that the Lake
Eleanor supply could be made all suf
flcipnt for the needs of San Francisco.
This would call for the -development
of the watershed over the ridge from
Lake Eleanor and the diversion of the
streams by means of a long tunnel into
the Lake Eleanor reservoir. The
streams re<roJring such treatment
would be Jack Main creek. Frog creek
and Stubblefield creek. Not only
would the cost of this method of con
struction b«* enormous, but it would
call for the destruction of some of the
most beautiful scenery in the Sierra,
for which Ballinger has professed such
a tender regard. It would obliterate
the wonderful falls on what is known
a? Falls creek.
The Hetch Hetchy project will claim
the close attention of the administra
tion until the hearing in Washington.
Hetch Hetchy Indorsed
f OAKLAND. April 5. — The central la
bor council and the building trades
council of Oakland will make a strong
fjght in favor of the Hetch Hetchy
water proposition now before the peo
ple of Pan Francisco. At last night's
meeting of the labor council W. H.
Urmy, chief of the electrical depart
ment of San Francisco, and B. B.
Rosenthal. first vice president of the
Pan Francisco labor council, were in at
tendance, and an apepal was made to
both councils for co-operation in the
fight now being made.
It was argued that the secretary of
the interior had no right to interfere
in the development of a water supply
for San Francisco, and a resolution was
presented protesting against such in
terference, to be forwarded to Presi
dent Taft and members of both the
house and the senate of the United
The resolution comes as a result of
Secretary of the Interior Richard A.
"* Ballinger notifying San Francisco of
ficials that he proposed to reopen the
matter of a water supply, and consider
the desirability of revoking the rights
owned by the city to its largest and
most important reservoir, in which the
city owns more than half the storage
area under patents from the United
States, and the right to utilize the re
mainder' under the laws.
Snow Shoveler, Street Sprinkler
and Lawn Mower Work
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
QUINCT. April s.— Within a radius
• of 350 feet in the heart of the city
today was found a most peculiar cpndi
tlon of climate. One man was shovel
ing snow, a second was sprinkling the
dust in the street, and a third was
running his lawn mower. This is no
"hot house and winter" combination.
JVU three were working under the
"uluc skies, the snow ehoveler tossing
off great, white heaps of fluffyness, the
gardener leaving .behind him a green
mist, and the street sweeper being fol
lowpd by dry clouds of dust.
Quincy is built on a hillside, and
the climatic comparisons above and be

Dr. C. C. Stratton Passes Away
After Many Years of Service
PORTLAND, 'April s.— Dr. Charles
Carroll Stratton, one of the most prom

cific coast, died at Salem yesterday,
after long illness.
Doctor Stratton was the founder of
the Taylor Street Methodist church in

In 1875 he went to San Jose. Cal,
where he became pastor of the First
Methodist church. t
Two years later he was appointed

Dignified Justices' Ire Aroused
by Reading About "Butt
Ins" and "Peaches"
As a horrible example of what the
justices of the supreme court believe
that a legal document should not be,
the brief of Attorney Ralph W. Schoon
over of Santa Barbara was yesterday
held up to the public gaze and Schoon
over was cited to show cause why he
should not be punished for contempt of
The following words must never be
used in briefs filed before the supreme
Peach, rntv, rotten, putrid, butt In.
Nor shall a lawyer refer to a de
cision of a superior court in such sul
phate language as:
"It is a huge judicial joke, and would
have been funny had it not been quite
so raw, and intended and used as a
hypocritical judicial cloak to^ cover as
damnable a case of unblushing rob
bery and oppression of the widow and
orphan as ever went unwhipped of jus
tice in this reign of Mammon."
Small Sum Involved
And only $651.07 was involved. How
much the 7 odd cents had to do with
the langage used by Attorney Schoon
over has not yet appeared.
The trouble started in a suit tried
before Superior Judge Walter Bordwell
of Santa Barbara county. A. C. Wil
liams sued A. P. Lane, trustee of the
estate of Addle L. Allen, bankrupt.
Judge Bordwell gave Williams judg
ment for $651.07. Attorney Schoon
over for Lane appealed, to the supreme
court. Then he flledhis brief.
The justices of the supreme court
met in bank to review the papers in
the case of Williams vs. Lane. One
of the justices took up the brief of
Attorney Schoonover and began to read
it aloud. He got over a few where
ases and other conventional phrases.
Then he came to a new paragraph.
"'Then the state court butts into the
game,' " he read in an amazed tone.
"Beg pardon — I didn't quite follow?"
interrupted one of the learned associ
ate justices.
" 'Then the state court butts in—' "
"My gracious," exclaimed a justice,
"did Blackstone ever use such lan
Ade Replaces Blackstone
"If my memory serves me," suggested
Justice Mclvin, "it sounds like a newer
master; Ade, I believe his, name is.
The justice who was reading the
brief continued: , .
" 'Then a state court butts into the
game, and when it has gotten its A but
ter going it is unable to stop, but con
tinued with all the judicial solemnity
of an owl. Its action would doubtless
pass muster in a circus or a moving
picture studio: but certainly do not
comport very well with the dignity
and caution — "
"'Dignity and caution,' does he say —
sacialege," muttered a learned associ
ate justice. "But go on, pray, we must
get this* nightmare over with. And
they talk of abolishing capital punish
The reading of the brief was con
tinued: "Do not comport very well with
dignity and caution and evenness of
mind popularly believed'to' be /person
ified in one who wears \u25a0. the judicial
ermine and is presumed to. know the
law and to administer it.'"
There was a general judicial gasp
en bane.
" 'The decision Is a peach,' " contin
ued the reader.
"What?" exclaimed a learned jus
tice. "What?"
Melviri Interprets Expressions
"In the vernacular," explained Jus
tice Melvin, "the word 'peach* signifies
anything rare, pretty— l gather that it
is used here in an ironical sense."
« " 'Said rotten decision,' " continued
the reader, " 'was the rottenest de
cision that ever disgrjiced the records
of any court; for it wiped. out the.en
tire story of his perfidy. 'lt- Is a raw
decision.' " V
"That, I fancy, is another colloquial
ism," asserted Justice Henshaw. ,
'"The said judgment,' "the brief was
read, " 'is ". one of the wonders- of the

frivolous, but false as well, and was

BOSSeS Of Old and New Democ
racy Conflict in Opinions of
Outcome of Campaign
Feud of Leaders Promises to Be
Bloodless Affair, Pend
ing Primaries
I believe I nill have no opponent for
the democratic nomination' for gov
- Xo, I shall not , be active tn Bell'M
campaign. Funerals are gad; then Bell
has had ho many. GAVIN McNAB. .
The democratic. situation is so simple
that Gavin McNab, boss of the old or
ganization democracy, and Theodore A.
Bell, master of a regenerated bourbon
ism, find no difficulty in summing it up
in a sentence each.
! Theodore A. Bell believes that his
ambition to lead democracy's hosts
again will be gratified without a fight
at the primary polls. Gavin McNab de
clines to admit directly that Bell will
be nominated by default, but admits it
indirectly by declaring that he will not
participate in the funeral affair, be
cause Bell has already enjoyed more
than the customary number of funerals.
Bloodless Feud Promised
['. So far as the primary campaign is
concerned the McNab-Bell feud prom
ises to be a bloodless affair. \u25a0 After
the primaries at which Bell expects
to be returned a default winner — but
that is another story.
Bell's hopes of a nomination with
out opposition seems to be in a fair
way of realization. The formal retire
ment of Senator E. O. Miller of Visalia
has put a spoke in the wheel of Bell's
opponents. Tom Geary was at no time
a bona fide candidate. At no time were
the proponents of Tim Spellacy on the
square with the oil magnate. Tremen
dous pressure has been brought to bear,
on James V. Coleman, but to date he
has given no sign, of a desire, to try
conclusions with Bejl.
To the impartial observer It would
appear that Bell had succeeded in
backing his opponents off the demo
cratic board. Bell does not put it' so
baldly, but that is the way the situation
appeals to him. ', .
Bell Positive of Victory
• "I, believe I will have no opponent for
the nomination for governor," said
Bell yesterday. "Senator Miller's re
fusal to enter the contest was not un
expected. I never believed he would
be a candidate. Undoubtedly if the
nomination could be offered to Senator
Miller he might see it In 'a different
light. That could not be done this
year. If it had been offered to him
the ' circumstances would, have been
misunderstood. Opposition would make
no difference to me. Of course it would
result in a different campaign, and one
can make a better general, election
campaign if he does not have "to fight
for the nomination. I want to make
the fight this time. After the primary
election it is all a gamble, but I want
to see what can be done."
"Will you be active in Bell' 3 cam
paign?" McNab' was asked. ' '
"No," replied the genius of- the San
Francisco democratic organization.
"Funerals are sad; then Bell has" had
so many."
The attempt to bring out an oppo
nent to Bell has been unsatisfactory
work. The; leaders of the old Mine
democracy are out of sympathy , with
the former Napa man. They believe
that with Beli at the helm in Califor
nia the state democracy will remain
as effectually divided as is national
democracy over William Jennings
No Objection to Bell •
That attitude is by no means char
acteristic of all the followers of. the
McNab organization in San • Francisco.
Some of; the men prominently identi
field with the McNab. forces, are for
Bell.. They, are not shouting their;
opinions, from the housetops, -but they
insist that they can see; no objection 'to
Bell either as a candidate or as .'a
governor. - '
Tim Spellacy has advised Bell and
his lieutenants that ' he wants none
of the -nomination ;for lieutenant gov
ernor. Spellacy;is for Cartwright.' Cart
wright is for Spellacy, or, for that mat
ter, foraimost any candidate who will

ROME, April 5. — Just as he re
sisted the efforts of the Vatican
to restrict his liberty of action
after his proposed presentation to the
pope, so Theodore Roosevelt today re
sented an attempt by the Methodists
of Rome to make capital out of his
When his attention was dfawn to
the inflammatory statement issued by
the Methodists, he immediately can
celed the reception at the American
ambassador's home fixed for tomor
row afternoon, and requested the
ambassador so to inform the Metho
dists. He reiterated* his-tnrohatic dis
approval of any attempts to inflame
religious animosities. .
Roosevelt's Statement
Roosevelt's statement follows:
I had made no arrangements to
speak at any church or before any
clerical organization in Rome. I
have received a number of gentle
men of all religious faiths who
have called at my rooms or at the
American embassy.
Under the circumstances. I have
requested the American ambassa
dor not to hold the reception which
he had intended to hold Wednes
day afternoon.
As regards all efforts, by whom
soever mnde, to bring about and
inflame religiaus animosities be
cause of what has occurred in
connection with the Vatican and
myself, I can do no more than to
refer to the . emphatic statements
contained in my open letter to Doc
tor Lyman Abbott, already pub
All that I there said I desire to
reiterate with my whole power.
I am able to state that Roosevelt re
gards the statement of the Methodists
here as simply scurrilous. He feels
that while the course of the Methodists
in no shape or way justifies the Vat
ican, the statement made last night by
the Methodists rendered it out of the
question for him to have anything to
do with them. Exactly as Roosevelt
feels that the majority of American
Catholics would repudiate th« action of
Cardinal Merry del Val Is ' he cartaln
that a great majority of the Methodists
in America will repudiate what was
done by the Methodists here.
Permits No Dictation
Whether or not the Catholics or tfce
Methodists believe, as he hopes thay
believe. In the justice of his action i.i
the two incidents, he stands and will
stand absolutely upon the principles
previously announced. He would no^
more submit to dictation by the Vat-
Jean than to dictation by the Methodists
in Rome and Just as little by the Meth
odist organization as by the Vatican.
Exactly as he refused to give the Vat
ican .the slightest promise of any kind
so when the Methodist organization
misbehaved he refused to have any
thing to do. with it. His whole course
in Rome has not been in the slightest
degree partisan. He cares not a snap
of his fingers for any possible effect
upon himself, for he feels that he is
entirely competent to take care of him
self, i \u25a0
'; He also believes that his fellow
countrymen will cordially approve of
his refusal to be dictated to by either
side. His sole concern has been to
try to prevent any religious acrimony
or bitterness in the United States. Ha
stands absolutely for justice and fair
dealing between the different creeds
and for treating with respect the re
ligious opinions of all honest men. And
hd can neither be coerced out of his
attitude by anything done by the Vati
can,on the one hand nor by any repre
sentatives of a Protestant organization
on. the other hand. .
