Now He Insists on
"Vindication"
limis pending for the dismissal of simi
lar cases, has impressed him as more
inviting than forbidding.
Returning recently from Europe,
Detwiler tarrie.l a brief time in Toledo
and then made arrangements to come
to San Francisco. He arrived yester
daj- morning and took apartments at
the St. Francis.
Accompanied by W. J. G. Lambert, a
friend from Los Angeles; Attorney
Frank E. Calkins, his personal adviser
from Toledo, and Attorney W. W. Kauf
man of San Francisco, he presented
liimself before Judge Lawlor at 4 o'clock
ye-sterday afternoon. There are pending
;israinst him 13 indictments, returned in
March, 1907. Bail in the total sum of
$120,000 was furnished by the Paul M.
N'ippert company, representing the
A*>tna indemnity company. Thes ure
iU»s were accepted by thed istrict at
torney and the court. After formalities
extending over nearly an hour the order
of release was signed. The case was set
for Thursday, May r>, at 10 o'clock.
Grins at Snapshots
During the whole proceeding Dct
iviJer sat unconcerned and indifferent.
He took but little interest in the dis
cussion, finding a. more worthy subject
in the coterie of photographers that
hovered about. Every time a, shutter i
elicited Drtwiier grinned. When they
'clicked in unison he chuckled. When
•tho whole battery was discharged, ac
companied by the boom of a flashlight,
be iaughed aloud.
For some reason the name of Det
v-iler has suggested a full chested,
powerful lljruro. Instead there toddled
:. into". court a frail bit of humanity,
: .scarce 5 feet in height. The eyes look
out lynxlike from beneath heavy
jshaggy brows. The swarthy cheeks
drop straight and then squaring the
".jaw fchoot abruptly to the chin. It is
: the face that bespeaks the shrewd
financier. Kuef must have met his
"\u25a0match- at . figures when the two sat
down together.
: While he talked to the newspaper*
. men. or rather while he sat mute under
instructions -from his attorney, lie dis
played the best of good nature, lattgh
ing at times at his own plight.
ABSENT IN EtTROPE
.It appears that hn was absent in
Kurcr-e during the greater part of the
Time wh^n efforts were made to locate
him in Toledo. D^twilrr said he had
never mn across William J. Burns dur
ing the ]att*>r"s search for him. but was
imwiJling to go into the details of<.his
ciforts to dodge the detective.
In his formal statement Dotwiler
hH:
VI have returned voluntarily to.-San
irancis'-o so that I can free my repu
i.i.tion from the odium of the indict
ments that were returned against m«*
a little more than three j-ears ago.
Ever since the action of the grand
jury I Jiave been anxious to return and
meet the charges, and physical inabil
ity is the one and only reason why I
have not been here before. I have
longed for this day to come and now
.that it is here I rejoice in the fact
Tliit I am at last able to present my.
-^<lf at the bar of justice, where I am
<ertain to be purged of the accusa
tions agrainst me. I will briefly recite
the incidents governing this entire
matter.
"For a Iqng period prior to the pass
apre by the board of supervisors of the
ordinance offering for sale a franchise
for a competing telephone system I
had been working and traveling al
most incessantly on a number of mat
teni both h*r«\ in Nevada and in the
<ast. with the result that I was on the
verge of a nervous breakdown. The
earthquake brought about culmination
of my ills, and I later found myself in
fo serious a condition that, much
r^rainst my will. I was compelled to
fibandon work of ail description and
peek health by mean* of complete
:jest. The grajid jury was at that time
JrA-estigating charges of municipal
« orruption, and as the Home telephone
franchise had been mentioned in the
Jirvvspapcrs as one of the issues to be
probed. I called upon Francis J. He'ney,
who was conducting the prosecutory
ivork. and asked him if there was any
vbjettion to my going to my home in
the oast. I explained to him my in
terest in the Home telephone company,
and said that if any testimony was
required from me I would be Klad to
give it eitlier then or at any time it
was wanted. Mr.. Heney told me to go
al;*-a<i and take the trip if I so desired.
COJLLAPSED IN CHICAGO
"After T arrived in Chicago I suffered
ii complete nervous collapse and was
unable to proceed to my home for about
a week. At th* end of that time I was
•n-^ll enough to proceed to Toledo, where
J. arrived in due course. There my
. family physician examined me and pro"
nounced my condition alarming. He
f^-nt me lor preliminary treatment to
rjattle Creek. Mich., where I remained
for several weeks, and then, under his
fulvice. I proceeded to Europe, where I
placed myself in the hands of spe
cialists. My improvement was slow, and
3 decided to return home.' Upon my ar
rJval at Toledo my brother informed me
that. I had just been indicted in San
Francisco, the indictments having been
returned the day before while I was on
the train en route from New York
This was the first intimation I had
that my name was even being consid
ered in connection . with criminal
charges, and the shock stunned me. I
was anxious to go straight to San
3'rancisco, but my doctor stated that in
. iriy enfeebled condition it would be
Tantamount to suicide to attempt the
\u25a0excitement and strain of a trial.
ABROAD FOR TWO YEARS .
"In a state of almost complete nerv
ous prostration I heeded the advice of
my doctor and friends and went abroad
and I passed the next two years at the
leading health resorts, endeavoring to
build, myself up again. A .large part of
that time was passed, in Germany. I
am past €0 years of age, . so recovery
was slow, so slow that at times I de
spaired that it would ever come* at all.
Gradually, however, ray ; strength and
health came back, and then I set myself
to the realization of ray determination
to return to San Fracisco to secure a

Accused Cornmissioner Wants Speedy Trial
And Says He Expects Complete Vindication
y , . , _ . : . +
The arraignment yesterday of former Police Commissioner H. P. ' F lannery, surrounded by his attorneys, in the superior court of Marin at San I
Rafael. From left to right those in the group are: George A. Knight, H. P. Flannery,. E. B. Marlinelli, Frank H. Gould and Charles J. Heggerty. j
vindication of my good name. And
here I am at last, anxious for the ear
liest possible trial of the charges
against me.
"My absence has been with the, sole
Idea of recovering my health sufficient
ly to stand the" ordeal 6of a trial, and
there never has been a moment from
hte* day I first learned of my indict
ment until the present time that I did
not intend to return to San Francisco
directly my health would permit. That
1 have done so voluntarily is the best
proof that I have nothing to fear. Lib
erty is priceless, but not more so than
honor, and I could not go down to the
grave with these charges standing
against my reputation, which, until
these indictments, was never ques
tioned during a business career ex
tending over 40 years.-.
DEFENSE NOT DISCUSSED
"This is neither the time nor the
place to discuss my defense, so I will
merely j=ay that the indictments
against me are without foundation. I
had nothing to do directly or indirectly
with the bribing of any supervisor; I
never authorized directly or indirectly
any person to bribe any supervisor
and I had no knowledge directly or
indirectly that any briber}' was ar
ranged for or occurred."
According to District Attorney Fick
ert. Detwiler returned only to avoid
capture. Said Fickert yesterday:
"Detwiler came in only because he
had but a short time to run. We had
been after him. We had located him
in Toledo and had sent a detective
there. He knew that he would soon
be taken. The first I knew that he
was in town was when I received a
message this morning from Kaufman
that he had a client who desired to
surrender to the court. Upon examin
ing the record I learned that it must
be Detwiler.
"I do not know when we will go to
trial. I do not think we can proceed
for a couple of months because of other
matters."
"Do you think you can get^a convic
tion?" was asked.
TESTIMONY NOT STRONG
"The testimony of the supervisors
doesn't show up very strong," replied
Fickert. "It's another case of Ruef
paying over the money. Gallagher tes
tified that he receiced $62,000 from Ruef
and paid it over to the supervisors in
the Home telephone case. It seems
from the testimony that Gallagher
holds the same position in this case as
he does in the Calhoun case. I be
lieve, though, that there is other testi-'
mony tn this case. We can, for instance,
call the other officials of the telephone
company. They can not refuse to testi
fy, as they can no longer be held for
the offense."
It has been generally understood that
$200,000 was paid for the Home * com- :
pany franchise, the supervisors receiv- !
ing $62,000. The balance was divided
between Ruef and JSchmita. The thir
teen indictments against Detwiler
charge the payment of $3,500 to Wil
son, Lonergan, Coffev, Nicholas, Mam-"
lock, Furey, Coleroan and Phillips;
f 6,000 to Duffy. Harrigan. . Kelly and
Davis, and $10,000 to Gallagher.
The unequal allotments were devised
by Ruef to even up the payments made
to certain supervisors by the Pacific
telephone company. !
Detweiler was vice president of * the !
Home telephone company at the time
of the scandal. Since then he has dis-r
posed of his holdings in the corpora- |
tion. He spent a great deal of time j
in San Francisco while the franchise I
was pending and handled the political
affairs of the corporation during that
momentous period.
Jerry Driscoll Back
Jerry Driscoll, a brother in law of
former Mayor Schmitz, has returned to
San Francisco after an extended ab
sence. He was associated with his
relatives in many enterprises that
formed the subject of grand jury in
vestigations. Driscoll left California
more than two years ago. It was
learned that he had gone to Mexico. He
has decided, \u25a0 however, \u25a0 to take up, his
J residence once more in San Francisco.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, ' lIAY •\u25a0 4, 1910:
Attorney Knight Promises to Do Nothing That
Will Serve to Delay Hearing
bott and Mac Sherry transacted their
financial matters and by noon the lat
ter was back in his cell in the county
Jail. ,
Mrs. Mac Sherry remained with her
husband in his cell until just a few
minutes before 2:30 o'clock in the after
noon, when he started with Sheriff
Tayjor in a. carriage for fc?an Quentin.
She left the jail weeping and returned
at once to San Francisco. Mac Sherry
almost ran the few steps from the jail
door to the carriage when he was taken
out by •Sheriff Taylor, holding a hand
kerchief over his face, as he has done
ever since his arrest, to avoid being
photographed.
INTERESTED IX HIS FATE
The sheriff and his prisoner drove by
the toll road to San Quentin, where
they were met by Warden Hoyle. Mac-
Sherry took a lively interest In what
was before * iiim, questioning Sheriff
Taylor at length regarding the prison
rules and regulations, what he would
be given to eat and what work most
likely Avould be assigned to him. He
shook hands with the sheriff and sev
eral newspapermen on arriving at the
penitentiary and was then turned over
to the captain of the yard.
Within an hour of the time he had
stepped within the massive prison gate
Mac Sherry had been searched, mea
sured, shaved and bathed, twice photo
graphed, given his suit of stripes and
lost his identity in the prison number
24,273. He was assigned to the main
cellhouse, and before the lockup at 4:30
o'clock hud eaten his first prison sup
per, consisting of boiled, beans, bread,
black coffee and apple cobbler. This
morning he will be put at ' work as an
assistant on a lpom.
While Mac Sherry has consistently re
fused to confess before the "grand jury
or to make any declarations which
might be used as evidence, he has made
several statements amounting to vir
tual accusations- against Supervisor
Louis Pistolesi, whose alleged connec
tion with the fake poolroom men in the
guise of "protector" has been under
investigation by the grand jury.
ARRANGED FOB PROTECTION'
Mac Sherry, in one personal conversa
tion, made the assertion that arrange
ments had been made with Pistolesi for
protection of the* bunkomen for a stipu
lated sura, of $225 a week during their
stay in Sausalito, but that after this
amount had been paid for the first
week Pistolesi demanded more. During
his drive to S"an Quentin yesterday with
Sheriff Taylor Mac Sherry denounced
Pistolesi violently, but . concluded his
tirade with, his' old sullen assertion:
"But I'll never squeal."
Pistolesi, who has . • denounced the
bringing of his name into the poolroom
scandal as the result of a plot to, in
jure him politically, attempted. a back
fire yesterday through an attack on
Sheriff Taylor. Acting with Supervisor
Michael Burke in the capacity of the
license committee of the board of su
pervisors, Pistolesi filed a charge with
j the board that certain money received
by Taylor for liquor licenses had not
been paid over to the- county, although
receipted for. The board of - super
visors received the report yesterday
and turned it over -to .District Attorney
Boyd for investigation.
Taylor, who is tax. collector as well
as sheriff, explained that the.^license
payments \u25a0 in question HTLd been { erro- •
neously entered by a clerk in "his office
as tax payments _ and had been put
into the tax fund instead:. of into the
license' fund. ,He- showed that several
errors of this kind had; been run" <lown
and' corrected and that the" error was
simply - one of. a clerical* nature. < Boyd
accepted the : explanation '.? as -satisfac
tory and there is little, possibility of
any further action. in the matter. \u25a0
TRANSCRIPT DELIVERED '
The transcript of testimony-- tak^n
before the grand jury, was made public
yesterday through its delivery to Flan
nery's attorneys at the " time of his' ar

people that were in there or have any
thing to do with them, as they were
not his friends, and he would let me
know when to start. I spoke to him
about having a gangling house. He
said: 'You 'just wait, you can have any
thing you want. I promised you could
and you can have it just as soon as
I tell you.' In othor conversations ho
would ask me about certain detectives
— whether I knew them and if I
thought they would be good men on
different boats."
KXEW IT WAS BUN*KO
Abbott testified that he had told
Flannery he had a poolroom and that
the latter knew what he was doing.
District Attorney Boyd then asked the
question: "What I moan if, did you
have any conversation with him' in
which you said the purposes of the pool
room wore for — well, to be plain — for
bunkoing people out of their money?"
"Well, he knew that," answered Ab
bott. "He didn't ask me anything
about that."
Abbott also repeated several conver
sations with Flannery prior to his ar
rest and afterward, and said that when
he applied to Flanncry for help for bail
he was told to "see Jerome Bassity."
He also declared that while he was In
jail in San Rafael, James W. Cochrane,
his attorney, told- him that he would
"land" Sheriff Taylor and that the,lat
ter had better not go around San Fran
cisco, as Flannery would "see that he
got a good licking."
COURT DROPS CHARGE
AGAINST BALLINGER
Secretary Denies He Shirked
His Official Duty
WASHINGTON, May 3. — Secretary
Ballinger received what might be called
one vindication in the supreme court of
the district of Columbia today, when a
charge that he' had shirked his duty as
"secretary .of the interior was ordered
expunged from the record.
- In an injunction proceeding in con
nection with homestead claims on' the
Siletz Indian reservation, in Oregon/the
petition alleged that, because Ballinger,
as a lawyer, had been counsel for some
of the claimants, he refused to paBS on
the case when he came into office and
delegated the work to his- first assist
ant,-Frank Pierce, and had therefore
shirked his duty. -
Ballinger denied the imputation,
claring that the cases' had been referred
to Pierce in the regular. course of busi
ness, as the latter had direct charge of
general land office affairs. ' :

LOVING CUPS ARE
GIVEN TO "TEDDY"
Colonel Roosevelt Finds That
"Wild Beasts of Africa" Are
Asiatic Elephants
.COPENHAGEN, May 3. — Theodore
Roosevelt left here at 0:30 o'clock to
night for Christiania. wher^ he will
arrive shortly after noon tomorrow.
At.Christ|ahia the feature of his visit
will be the Nobel prize ; speech, which
will be delivered Thursday afternoon
in the National theater.
Ari enormous crowd gathered at the
station to bid farewell to the Roosevelt
party. Minister Egan had been invited
to go to Christiania, but remained here,
having just received news of the death
in the United States of his wife's
mother. "
LOVING CUPS PRESENTED
Colonel Roosevelt was the recipient
today of two loving cups; one bearing
the Danish court of arms and the other
the American arms, and also of four
plaques from the royal porcelain
works, upon which were pictured sev
eral wild beasts. In making the pres
entation, the manager of the works
told Roosevelt that they were "wild
• beasts^of Africa." -
Roosevelt accepted the plaques
graciously, and while examining the
figure' of an elephant, looked up. sud
denly and said smilingly:
v"This is not an African elephant."
"That is quite true," reolied the
manager. "These plates were made
especially. We have no study of Afri
can elephants, and so used Asiatic."
The incident caused a great deal of
amusement and the colonel remarked:
"I am very glad to have all kinds of
elephants."
DINNER BY MUNICIPALITY
The municipality gave a dinner at
the city hall in honor of the former
president, which was attended by 250
of the leading -men of the city. The
lord mayor presided and all the mem
bers of the cabinet were present. The
mayor proposed the health of the guest
of honor, and the company cheered as
he concluded: \u0084 - "
"Long live Roosevelt.". '
VISIT TO HELiSINGOER
In responding, Roosevelt touched
upon the j similarity of the-; problems
confronting all free countries.
During the day -the Roosevelt party
motored to Helsingoer, where great in
terest was shown in the old castle, the
scene of^'Hamlet." The party returned
to Copenhagen on the' steamer Queen
Maud, which passed between squadrons
of Danish' and' Swedish warships that
accorded > honors to the former chief
executive of the United States which
are usually presented only to royalty..
The * flags of the warships were
dipped, the officers I and men saluted and
the bands-played American _alrs. Many
merchant vessels in the harbor of Hel
singoer and Copenhagen flew the stars
and* stripes. „
NEW POSTMASTER AT WAHTOKE—Washing
ton, \u25a0; May 3. — Charles B. Kern was trxlay ap

ty, vice C. L. Croyle, resigned. - -
HERRIN TO NAME
CANDIDATE TODAY
Expected to Announce the Ma»
chine's Man for United
States Senate-
Organization Generals Believe
Selection Will Enliven An*
derson's Campaign |
GEORGE A. VAN SMITH
'Basing their opinions on the bope
that W. F.Herrin. and his southern
California first lieutenant, "Walter
Francis Xavier Parker, will select the
machine candidates for United States
senator . and ' lieutenant governor to
day, organization workers expect to
, see the« Anderson campaign take on
new life immediately.
"Herrin was* at his desk on Monday
! after his flying trip to Los Angeles.
Parlier is expected to arrive this morn
ing. If the senatorial candidate was
agreed upon while Herrin was in the
south, .his identity has not been dis
closed i to the imposing- array of gen
erals at the two Anderson headquar
ters in this city. /
SOFT PEDAL. WORKING
Virtually no effective field wor.k has
been done for Anderson. The Curry
shouters on the water front «nd in
other state jobs have been compelled to
put the soft pedal on their campaign
music. THe McCarthy administration
has turned over a few minor jobs for
the good of the Anderson cause. Be
yond that the generals and colonels at
the headquarters are the only visible
signs of aggressive campaigning for
the superintendent of banks.
This is explained by some of the ma
chine men as the natural result of the
big boss' failure to name a candidate
for Frank Flint's job and another for
"Warrie" Porter's lieutenant govern
or's billet. • These links in their chain,
they believe, will be supplied today
when Herrin and Parker break their
silence.
MILLER IS SUGGESTED
Some of the bigger machine men are
impressed with the talk about Frank
Miller of Riverside for the senate.
Some of them are of the opinion that
Parker will bring with him Phil- Stan
ton's agreement to withdraw from the
gubernatorial fight in return for the
organization's support for lieutenant
governor. They are in the minority. A
majority of the machine men believe or
pretend to believe that Stanton Is in
the fight to stay for the big finish. As
a matter of fact many of the machine
men in Southern California and more
particularly in Los Angeles, prefer that
Stanton remain in the race. They con
tend that the majority of the votes Stan
ton will receive in^Los Angeles belong
naturally, to Johnson and Curry and
that if Stanton were taken out those
votes would be cast" for the candidates
who are fighting the machine.
TWO CAMPAIG.V COUNCILS
Aside from his effective publicity
bureau, Anderson is recruiting impres
sive campaign councils at both of his
San Francisco headquarters which, by
the way.^his managers still insist, are
wholly independent of each other.
John C. Lynch, Herrin's local dictator,
is the big man at the Post street head
quarters. George F. Adams, who was
Ruef's registrar of voters, is Lynch's
first lieutenant in charge. Leon Den
nery. who was the McCarthy adminis
tration representative at the Post street
Headquarters, and who it was said
would concern himself with the local
campaign, has joined the strategy
board at the Palace hotel headquarters.
The regulars in attendance upon the
daily meetings of the state campaign
directors are Johnnie Mackenzie, labor
commissioner and boss of .Santa Clara
county; Leon Dennery; Charlie Spear,
sometime member of the harbor com
mission and lately .a candidate for
mayor of Berkeley, and George Ander
son of San Jose. Alden Anderson's
brother and formerly a member of the
assembly.
FEDERAL OFFICIALS ALOOF
Arthur Fisk and George Hatton are
interested spectators, but not active
participants in the deliberations of the
campaign directors. Fred Stratton, Gus
Muenter and the federal officials gen
erally are conspicuous by their ab
sence. .- \u25a0 . — -
Some real betting money has put in
an appearance. The amount is not
large. That is probably due to the
fact that the bettor offering it is bait-,
ing a queer proposition and may be
sounding out the market. R. E. Baines,
the Mission street merchant, is the
bettor. He wants to lay $300 against
$1,000 that Johnson "will get more votes
than the combined poll for Curry and
Anderson. He says his roll is in the
hands of Tom Corbett. Baines has al
ways made good on his betting 1 propo
sitions and his bid is one that will
probably attract 40 times the amount
necessary to take up his modest offer.
Thoma3 Hayden. former member of
the school board, president of the Iro
quois club and anti-machine democrat,
is being boosted by his friends as the
Bourbon candidate for congress in the
fifth district.
