home," said. Bender last night. "Al
though there is a possibility that he
came of wealthy parents I think it ex
tremely improbable. He bore many of
the intangible traces which indicate the
farmer lad or the boy from a small
town.
"Further than that s he received a let
ter, which he read to my wife and my
self, from a sister who was in northern
California, employed either as a school
teacher or a \u25a0 telegraph operator. She
counseled him to be brave and manly.
It was a typical letter from an elder
sister. \u25a0
Boy Acted Queerly
"After he was with us a short time
the boy acted very peculiarly. He was
very disputatious and egotistical. He
pretended to have a deep and profound
knowledge oX classical subjects. He
raved over a fine edition of the "Ru
baiyat" of Omar Khayam which is in
my library and frequently read it and
quoted from it. He. formed the habit of
staying up very late at night, and I
would not see him for several days. I
finally questioned him about his ab
sences and he told me that he had se
cured employment at a garage.
"He had been acting queerly, impress
ing me as being unbalanced mentally,
and as he seemed able to provide for
himself I told him he had better go
and secure some place to board. He
left us in December, 190 S. and I have
neither seen nor heard from him
eince."
Bender expressed the belief that Red
fern had had some relative in Alameda,
es he frequently referred to some per
son who lived there.
These facts led the police to give
added weight to the letter which was
found in the vacant lot with a time
table a short time after the commission
or the crime. Although the address
of the writer and the signature were
carefully torn from the letter, the con
tents showed plainly that it was writ
ten from some point in California Feb
ruary 10 of the present year, and was
addressed to Los Angeles, to which
point Redfern is believed to have fol
lowed th«> Wilson family subsequent
to the death of the son Lloyd late in
January. The missive is addressed to
\u25a0".lamsie."
"Do not let love (which after all is
but one of God's great gifts to his chil
dren) or lack of love make you veer
from your «ourse. There's lots more.
Jim; I'm not flippant or undervaluing
its beauty, but we can't have all the
good gifts. We have the best when we
love, but it is a blossom that does not
stand plucking."
Letter Establishes Link
The police are convinced that the
young man had written of his unre
quited love to his sister, bringing forth
the reply in the letter which was found
in the lot, which established the one
positive link between Redfern and the
scene of the crime, and raises" the sug
gestion that the young man's first name
was James Instead of the aristocratic
•'Van Camp" which he had adopted.
In addition to the letter and the facts
told by Bender the police also learned
yesterday that Redfern had been seen
loitering about the vicinity of the Wil
son home Wednesday, presumably for
the purpose of carrying out the fieldish
purpose of destroying the beauty of the
school girl who had ridiculed his im
petuous and romantic methods of win
ning her esteem.
Mrs. Harry Epstein, wife of a broker
of Tonopah. Xev., and a personal friend
of both the girl's parents, called at the
residence Wednesday, but none of the
family were at home. As she left the
house and walked to Octavia street to
take a car she noticed a young man
staring at her.

STEAMSHIP SUBSIDIES
ARE PAID BY CANADA
Total for One Year Amounts to
$1,684,683
Consul Frederick M. Ryder of Ri
moutkl furnishes the following statis
tics co\*ering the payment of subsidies
by the dominion government:
The amount of mail subsidies and
steamship subventions paid by the
Canadian government during the fiscal
year 1908-09 aggregated $1,684,683. The
following statement shows the subsi
dies paid to the steamship lines in ex
cess of 110,000 plying between Canadian
ports and the several countries: United
Kingdom, $565,000; Australia, $173,567;
N>w Zealand. $46,720; South Africa,
$146,000; France. $130,555; Mexico, $91,
667; China and Japan, $121,302; South
America, $65,700.
Steamships plying between the fol
lowing ports received. the amounts of
subsidies given: Montreal-Manchester
$35,000; St. John-Halifax-London, $40,
000; Ha-lifax-St. Johns, Newfoundland-
Liverpool, $20,000; St. John-Glasgow,
$12,000;- Halifax-Jamaica, $13,000; Vic
toria- Vancouver-Skagway. $12,500.
The subsidies for lSlOwill doubtless
show a considerable increase over
those of 1909. The government has al
ready made arrangements with addi
tional eteamship lines In anticipation
of an Increased trade with New Zea
land and France; with the former for
the purpose of providing transportaiton
facilities from Montreal to Australa
sian ports, for Canadian products,
which are now being forwarded via
New Tork. and this service will begin
with the opening of navigation on the
Bt Lawrence, about the first week in
May, on a monthly schedule. Instead
of one there •will probably be three di
rect steamship lines to ports In France
the coming season — one to Havre, an
other to Cherbourg, the third not yet
chosen.
Present indications favor an early
opening of navigation on the St. Law
rence, the river at this point, having
remained open to Rimoueki nearly all
of the winter, a condition without
precedent within the knowledge of the
present generation.
AUTOMATIC DOCTOR
IS LATEST INVENTION
There seems to be no limit to the tri
umphs of science, and the latest dis
covery or invention, according to: a
Paris contemporary, is the automatic
doctor. This mechanism has made its
appearance at Amsterdam, the home of
the tulip, rheumatism, curacao and
Rembrandt. The machine represents a

is a dot designed to receive a 15 cen
time' piece. The patient suffering, say,
from heart trouble or liver complaint,
goes to the machine and drops his coin

SHORTAGE OF EGGS
FELT IN ENGLAND
Poultry Society Sends Mission*
ary Train Into Rural Districts
to Aid Producers
Consul General John I*. Griffiths
writes as follows from London on the
movement to stimulate egg production
in England and Wales:
Much is now being said and done in
England toward a revival of interest
in agriculture. There is a growing con
viction that Great Britain must raise
more of its food supplies. It is felt
that agriculture has be«n too "much
neglected and that not only should the
ar^a under cultivation be greatly in
creased, but that the farmer should be
taught what to raise and how it should
be raised to secure the largest profit.
A significant development is that In
March or April of this year a mission
ary <»gg train will be dispatched
through western England and Wales,
where it is stated the egg industry is
at a low ebb. The United Kingdom now
imports nearly one-half the eggs con
sumed, the Imports in 1907 aggregat
ing in value $34,720,200, while the value
of eggs raised in Ireland amounted to
$11,962,592, and in England, Wales and
Scotland, $26,765,750. The Imports in
1909 were 535,210,600 in value.
LESSON FROM AMERICA
The suggestion of the egg train
doubtless came from America and has
been adopted by the National poultry
organization society of Great Britain.
Through government? aid and the gen
erosity of a railway company, which Is
placing a train at a greatly reduced
rate at the disposal of the society, it
is thought the undertaking will be
successful.
The train will be accompanied by a
number of experts, .who will endeavor
to bring the rural communities to re
alize the financial advantages to be
derived In devoting more attention to
chicken and egg production. Tt is not
believed that England can produce
enough eggs to supply the local de
mand, but it Is thought that instead of
furnishing less than 50 per cent of that
demand, as at present, it might be in
creased to 60 or 75 per cent.
In order to encourage poultry owners
to market eggs as soon as possible after
they have been laid the National poul
try organization society has established
co-operative depots, now 20 in num-
ber, in various sections of England.
The first depot was established in 1904.
Cash Is paid for the eggs delivered to
the local depot. Village eggs have been
usually sold once a week, thus coming
Into market less fresh than the Danish
eggs, and have sold at a lower price.
PRICES ARE INCREASED
Where the co-operative depots are
established the eggs are gathered
promptly and are stamped and graded
and forwarded without delay to large
towns and cities. The number of these
depots will doubtless be greatly multi
plied. The enormous number of 1,500,
000 eggs were sold at one depot in
1909. The farmers In this locality, and
this is true generally throughout Eng
land, received about 25 per cent more
for their eggs than had been previously
paid by local buyers.
Eggs have been plentiful on the Eng
lish market until recently, when there
was a slight reduction in imports. Best
selected Danish eggs sold February 18
for $2.37 per long hundred of 120; best
selected Italian eggs, $2.25; Russian
cold stored eggs, $1.58; English eggs,
$2.92 to $3.16. -
PROCRASTINATION MAY
'm BE DESIRABLE THING
Possible for Work to Become
Too Engrossing
The only way in which one can be
sure of gaining: time. ls to procrasti
nate. It is only the few hours Imme
diately In front of you, gained by put
ting in Its proper place employment
which was on the point of engulfing
your leisure, that you can be really
sure of having to do with as you wish.
There seems no other way of taking
time by the forelock. If one does at
once the work which will have to be
done eventually one lets time get a
start so considerable that one is in
danger of not even catching time by
the heels when one is at liberty to
start in pursuit, says the New York
Evening Post. This makes time stand
for leisure, but what better thing
could any one stand for, leisure being
not idleness but breathing, space in
which Is to recover from one's panting
run,- to reckon the distance one has
come, and to weigh the value of the
things gathered on the way. If we
are unable to face and use leisure,
then the race should be called off, for
it has reduced us to, flurried scurriers.
busy without rhyme or reason, pro
crastination in unavoidable duty, lying
directly before us. "
Naturally one must procrastinate
with taste and discretion. To postpone
everything is as unintelligent as to do
everything. It Is looking work in the
eye coolly that Is to be encouraged, and
not dropping one's eyes out of respect
merely because it Is work, and stupidly
taking It on because it says it is a duty.
Perhaps it is nothing of the kind. Any
way, a cavalier waving of it into the
limbo will show the stuff It is made of,
not to mention its seeing that you are
not a person to be bullied. If it still
hangs about you can tell it to come
back tomorrow; you may find a moment
to give it.
If it fails to -turn, up a second time
10 to 1 it was no duty at all, and when
you told it to be : off it thought its dis
guise penetrated and ran In a panic
of being discovered. We have built up
somehow an exaggerated worship of
work, until It is done blindly, breath
lessly, as though there was some'thlng
Inherently immoral In -stopping for a
moment to Bee what kind of work it is
that we are doing. It is. a spineless
person who can not retain the whip
hand over work, or at least manage
when overofflcious work attempts to
catch us. to escape with a taunt and
slyly protruding tongue.
NEW YORK AQUARIUM IS
MOST POPULAR RESORT
Nearly Four Million Persons
Enter Museum in Year
It Is proposed to build a new aqua
rium in Battery park. New York, the
present building being entirely inade-.
quate both in size and equipment. The
aquarium is the most popular museum
in the world. Last year it was 1 vis
ited by 3,800,000 persons. At the.Lon
don zoo, the next most popular resort
of the kind, the visitors number less
than 900,000 a year, says the New
Haven Palladium. The aquarium has
room for only 100 tanks and can ac
commodate only 200 species of fish. It
should have accommodations for almost
twice as many varieties. -The aqua
rium, as a part of Its educational work
supplies small aquaria' to the \u25a0\u2666'public

San Francisco Delegation Is Ac=
cused of Knifing Heney and
* Lane by. Los Angeles
Continued From Pas? 1
I ought to make the fight for governor
I shall abide by its decision, make a
vigorous campaign and do my utmost
to win a victory. I am of the opinion
that whoever is named by the confer
ence should receive the unanimous sup
port of the democrats through the stateT
so that we may absolutely avoid any
dissension or discord at our own pri
mary election in August."
Angelenos Are Disgusted
. . Norton and his followers were in the
depths of disgust this morning over
their defeat and the adoption of resolu
tions against indorsement of any can
didate.
"We have been . misrepresented
shamefully," said Norton. "Bell him
self was the originator of the indorse
ment scheme, it was not mine. This
conference was planned for the purpose
of indorsing a ticket and for nothing
else. That was the plan accepted at the
San Francisco conference! Bell was not
only for indorsement himself, but he
gave me a partial slate consisting of
himself for governor. Tim Spellacy for
lieutenant governor and Cartwright for
attorney general. His letter speaks for
itself. We kept two local candidates
out of the fight for him. He was for
indorsement all right until he found
out that there was a good chance that
he would be beaten. Then he shifted
the responsibility on to me. His actions
have cost him the support of all the
men who actually do the work in this
county."
Bell Denies Allegation
Bell said tonight that while ho had
written several letters to Norton
he had notified the Los Angeles man
subsequent to the letter written on
February 26 that he would neither
"seek nor accept" an indorsement from
the Los Angeles conference. '
"There was a time," said Bell, "when
it seemed that an indorsement might be
advisable, but the developments "of the
situation made such action unwise.'
When 1 announced my candidacy in San
Francisco I wrote to Norton saying
that I would neither seek nor accept
conference indorsement. He had am
ple time to call his friends together
and talk it over. Instead he wrote me
that if I did not accept that indorse
ment it would be given to another. If
I had been a child and he the greatest
boss in the world his language and at
titude could not have been stronger."
Bell's friends came to I*os Angeles
determined that democracy as repre
sented bj- the conference should accept
the challenge issued by McCarthy, who
secured the adoption of resolutions de
nouncing Bell by the state building
trades convention at Monterey. Bell's
friends and Bell himself believed it was
the duty of the conference to put de
mocracy on record as favoring the fight
made against McCarthy by Bell and the
democracy of San Francisco.
McCarthy's Deifi Accepted
The ball was opened by Ralph Mc-
Leean. of San Francisco, who intro
duced a resolution commending the
democracy, of. San Francisco and "es
pecially" Theodore A. Bell, for the
fight for clean government in the last
municipal campaign. -.-.,.
Norton t>f Los Angeles opposed the
resolution on the . ground that it was
an indorsement of a candidate.contrary
to the formally announced principles
of the conference. He offered to amend
the resolution by-- including for com
mendation the names of James D. Phe
lan, Sydney Van Wyck, Louis Mooser,
Justus Wardell, Ralph McLeean and
other San Francisco democrats.
With the exception of Van Wyck the
San Francisco members present
promptly demurred to any formal rec
ognition of their services to the party.
Van Wyck said he was opposed to in
dorsements, but %t any were to be given
he believed he was entitled to the best
in the shop.
George Tracy opposed the resolution
as a friend of Bell. Tracy and Tim
Reardon insisted that the indorsement
would be misconstrued' as an attack on
labor and would handicap rather than
assist Bell.
"McCarthy," said Tracy, "has deliv
ered the union labor party's political
organization to the .. republican ma
chine. He had not delievered the rank
and file of organized labor, nor can he.
Let us do nothing that can" be "miscon
strued as an attack on organized labor
itself or that will help McCarthy fight
Bell.". The debate waxed fast and at
times furious an hour before Bell was
asked to come -before the committee
and express hla views.
McCarthy Again Scored
"McCarthy is not a true represtnative
of labor," cried Bell after an exhaustive"
recital of his connection with the San
Francisco campaign. "McCarthy is
dragging labor down. I am and have
always been a friend of organized labor.
I believe organized labor has its true
functions and that beyond those it shall
not go. I take my labor doctrines from
such men as John Mitchell, Andrew
Furuseth and Walter Macarthur. I
fought McCarthy with all "my vigor.
No man of that tye can be raised to ex
alted position except through the moral
cowardice of men who know he is not
right, but who for business or other
reasons dare not spealc. \
"If that fight were to be made tomor
row I would go down theline. just the
same. If refusal to make that fight
meant the governorship, you could take
your honors elsewherfe. San Francisco
has been made by McCarthy a hundred
fold worse than we imagined It could
be. He has made it almost a' great den
of vice. It is a matter of Indifference
to me. You may adopt these resolu
tions or say no more about the subject
The people of the state shall know just
where I stand and that I have no apolo
gies to make." .-"\u25a0>' \u25a0' ";
All of One Accord
T. E. Gibbon declared that he would
not belong. to. a party. that would,com
promise with or condone McCarthy's
condemnation of one chosen as a leader
by that party. ..vi// ,
"If the governorship is to be bought
by grovelling , to- P. H. McCarthy and
what he represents we do not want it,"
declared Secretary Duncan. "The best
thing, that: could happen to. Bell would
be the opposition of. McCarthy and his
tenderloin." ;
The original resolutions contained no
direct reference to McCarthy. The offer
of a substitute I the preamble of which
was .introduced with McCarthy's name
acted like-magic on; the warring com
mltteemen. It : was with "a
whoop, only" George Tracy insisting that
he .be recorded. as .voting against what
he considered: a political mistake. ,:, . :

DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM
ADOPTED AT LOS ANGELES
Resolved, that. while we recognize
the fact that under the new primary
law the platform of our party in
this state must be prepared by a
body to be hereafter, named,- we, as
a body of democrats, earnestly de
sirous of • the welfare of the party
and the success of its\ principles,
hereby affirm, our. approval of the
declaration of principles adopted by -
the San Francisco conference of last
"Jackson day" and recommend it to
the next regular state- convention for
Its consideration, as follows:
- We hold that the emancipation of
California from Southern Pacific rule
overshadows every public question.
Every reform in legislative, execu- !
tive or judicial branches must await
the restoration of good government
in California.
When the people &re once more in
possession of their political rights
they will be in a position to take up
public demands along the following
lines:
First — Retrenchment in public ex
penditures.
Second — Equal and uniform taxa
tion.
Third — Securing to municipalities,
counties and the state the initiative,
the referendum and recall, whose
splendid practical operation has been
so clearly demonstrated in the city •
of Los Angeles.
Fourth — A more efficient control
of railway transportation companies
looking to the prevention of exces
sive rates, unfair discrimination and
other violations of the duties of
common carriers, and to the fair
assessment and taxation of their
properties.
Fifth — A more liberal provision
for tho support and extension of
our school system, for the purpose
of taking advantage of the better
methods that modern thought and
experience suggest.
Sixth — The betterment of public
highways, both land and water, to
meet the growing needs of' the
people.
Seventh — We favor the election of
municipal ticket in San Francisco,
his home city, during the last cam
paign; therefore be it
Resolved, by the democratic
party of California, as represented
in this conference, that Mr. Bell's
whole life proclaims him the con
sistent friend of organized labor,
and, further, we commend the part
taken by Mr. Bell In said campaign
as one in every particular consist
ent with the principles of sound
democracy and of good government.
San* Franciscans Aroused
The fireworks started before the con
ference convened this morning. Chair
man Gibbon's newspaper threw the San
Francisco regulars into a fine frenzy
by describing them as a small coterie
of old push democrats opposed to good
government and broadly intimating
that they took their orders from W. F.
Herrin.
Sydney Van "Wyck, head of the San
Francisco delegation, went right over
to the conference to deny the allega
tion, defend the character of the San
Francisco organization and demand
satisfaction, explanations and other
things.
Van Wyck told the conference that
he was pained, , shocked and otherwise
ruffled to read such scurrilous matter
In the paper managed by the chairman
of the conference. Ho told how he,
Louis Mooser, Justus Wardell and the
other members of the delegation had
always fought for good government.
He declared that the San Francisco
organization had proved its worth by
its works. He said the San Francisco
delegation had nominated J. Magulre
and Franklin K. Lane for governor,
made James D. Phelan mayor, Wash
ington Dodge assessor and given San
Francisco the best supervisors it had
ever had.
Compliance with his^ demand for sat
isfaction was postponed until late- this
afternoon. Then Gibbon came to the
front by stating that he was delighted
to accept Van Wyck's certificate of
good character for himself and fellow
delegates, but the article In his paper
was occasioned by the fact that they
had sanctioned a threat to leave the
conference mado in a manner more of
fensively Insulting than Chris Buckley
had ever dared to employ.
Gibbon Makes Reply
"As for Lane," said Gibbon, "he dem
ocrats of Los Angeles can not forget
that he so far failed to get his natural
vote in San Francisco that 'we had to
say he was slaughtered in the house of
his friends. Four years ago Bell was
butchered in San Francisco. We come,
to feel':. that we could not rely with
confidence on the democracy of San
Francisco. The presence of such men
as came here to this conference we had
hoped was an earnest desire 6n the
part of the democratic party of San
Francisco to redeem itself. Last night
they threatened to leave the confer
ence if we did not agree jvith them.
"Chris Buckley never dared give de
mocracy such an insulting slap."
To complete Van Wycks measure of
satisfaction David I. Mahony of the San
Francisco democratic club told the con
ference taht the organization had noth
ing to do with the selection of Phelan,
that it had transformed a democratic
majority of 15,000 into a minority of
15,000 and that it had knifed Francis J.
Heney through -organization workers,
who, Mahony said, "wore Leland but
tons and passed Flckert tickets.".
.' In spite of the bickering and.lnev
itable washing of San Francisco dirty
linen, the conference is considered a
great success by the Bell men. who
were overwhelmingly In the majority.
It avoided the indorsement of canJl
dates. It gave expression to democ
racy's campaign principles and it dem
onstrated that the representatives of
rural democracy are down, hook, line
and sinker, for < Bell. • >

Victim, Who Is Well Known,
Lies in Hospital at Point

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
LOUISVILLE, Ky,' AprU -13. —
Thomas Langdon, a resident of New
Albany, Ind., just across the river
from Louisville, believing himself to
be a wronged husband, planned to re
venge the invasion of his home with
the same character of attack that Jack
Cudahy of Kansas City arranged for
JerejLillis.
Langdon's victim was Henry Der
ment, who lies in a hospital tonight
near death. Langdon did not follow
the Cudahy example by taking -some
one to assist him, but undertook to
overpower his man and complete his
design alone. In, the struggle he
slashed terrible gashes across the
thigh and. sides and plunged a knife
blade into Derment's body just under
the heart.
Langdon, who has a handsome young
wffe, left for his work at the usual
hour this morning, but returned unex
pectedly about 9 o'clock. He found his
wife standing in the front door and all
the back doors locked. He passed rap
idly by the woman and entered the
house and soon discovered Derment.
When assistance arrived and sep
arated the men Langdon bounded over
the hack fence, and disappeared. The
persons involved are well known.

Belief Is Prevalent That Con
Robin, Now Under Bonds,
Will Not Be Retried
NASHVILLE. Term.. April 13. — Colonel
Duncan B. Cooper, convicted of killing
former Senator E. TV". Carmaek and
sentenced to 20 years' Imprisonment,
was granted a full pardon today by
Governor Patterson just after the Ten
nessee supreme court had reaffirmed his
sentence.
Robin, son of Colonel Cooper, con
victed with his father, was remanded
for a new trial by the supreme- court.
In the younger man's case the supreme
court was divided. Chief Justice Beard
reading a dissenting opinion.
Governor Pattersons pardon for Col
onel Cooper declares, "in my opinion,
neither of the defendants is guilty and
they have not had a fair and impartial
trial, but were convicted contrary to
the law and evidence."
The reversal in the case of Robin *^
based on assignments of error in the
trial judge's failure to charge separate
ly as to Robin Cooper's plea of self
defense, the linking of the defense of
the two defendants together, the exS
eluding of testimony of Governor Pat
terson as to talks with defendant Robin
Cooper, and advice given him before
the tragedy, and the admission of cross
examination of Robin Cooper as to the
intent of certain state's witnesses in
testifying as to certain, incidents.
Robin Cooper is under a $25.00 ft bond.
His friends predict that he will not
again be tried.
