The democracy. of San Francisco was
not called upon yesterday to consider or
assist in the plans laid by former Gov
ernor Joe Folk of Missouri to line up
California behind his ambitions to be
the next democratic president of the
United States.
Folk paid San Francisco a hurried
visit yesterday. He came from the
Yopcmite. and loft almost immediately
for Fresno, accompanied by Chester H.
Rowell, president of the Lincoln-
Rooseveit league. Folk and parties of
his personal representatives arc laying
the. wires which they hope will lead
Folk to the democratic nomination for
president in 1912. They have been at
work for month? throughout the south
and west, and California has recently;
been made one of the bases of their
operations.
Folk's comiiiß had be^n widely her- 1
aided and the democratic c-hieftains in
San Francisco had groomed themselves
to meet an.i discuss Folk and the sit
uation. It has been generally under
stood that Folk's representatives and
Folk were working with and through
the Bryan men, and that the Missouri
democrat had an understanding with
the commoner. If Folk ,«aw any of the
commoner's friends in San Francisco
yesterday that fa<"t was skillfully con
cealed. He cam-.* with the head of the
Lincoln-Roosevelt league and J<*ft with
the leader of thf- reform republican
forr<s. It may be that Folk intends to
return to San Francisco for a confer
ence with the democrats, but the bour
bons have not been notified to that
effect and are frankly puzzled.

Indulge itself in a direct primary fight
over thf selection of v candidate for the
T*nit«"-d States senate was without foun
dation. California is to have a senator
ial primary scrap. It is to b«» a three
handed affair. Edwin A. Meserve of
Lor Angeles put a damper on the nia
rhln* 1 hope that a light advisory vote
would go to John \). Works, the Lin
coln -Itoosfveit league candidate, by de
fault. That hope was based on a deeper
dfßir« wiilch involved legislative re
pudiation of that vote on the ground
that therf w«s no contest. The formal
filing- of Mesfrve insured a scrap. Now
romes A. <;. Spalding of San Diego, who
will be a full fledged candidate for the
L*nit*>d States senate before the sun
?oes down tonight.
Senator Leroy A. Wright of San
Di*»jro. 00-author and sponsor for the
direct primary law, pa.«?*»d through
San Francisco last night laden with
th* petitions which, when filed with
tli«» secretary of ' s=tat<=> this . morning,
will give Spalding a place on the offi
cial republican ballot. The load of
petition*: carried by Wright represented
12 counties and h verified total of reg
• iMered republican f-lmtors more than
sufficient to make Spalding. a <iualifled
candidate.
EXTI2US IM)i:it I'ROTKST
Spalding lir.s been importuned for
weeks by prominent party men in the
south. Three, times he entered formal
refusal? to permit the use of his -name'
• as a candidate for the United States
senate.- The republicans of San Diego
and other southern counties had vir
tually given over hope of getting
Spalding into the race, when he be
came embroiled in a controversy with
I*. W. Scripps, who informed Spalding
that he must answer several questions
before Scripps would advocate Spald
ingr's candidacy with the 100.000 voters
with whom Scripps declared he was
in daily contact. Spalding answered
the questions and another. The added
answer was that he would run for tlie
penato against his wishes, but in spite
of Scripps. As a further «nd final an-
Kwcr Senator Wrisht started for Sac
ramento with Spalding's petition for. a
place on the ballot.
, All the pother about legislative can
didates filing their petitions with the
secretary of state is. according to Sen
ator Wright and the San Francisco elec
tion commission, net-dies? and in no wise
suggested by the provisions of 'the
direct primary law. According to the
Sacramento dispatches the justices of
the • appellate court have advised the
secretary, of state that all petitions for
legislative candidates must be filed with
the secretary of fetate. The primary law
provides that petitions for candidates
running in # districts comprising more
than one county must be riled with the
drcretary of j-tate; those for candidates
running in a single county with the
county clerk or registrar of voters. In
the latter case the l»w provides that
th* cl«»rk or registrar must forward
the petitions to the secretary of state
within "I^ day« after their receipt."
L.AAV nEADS PI.AI.V
"The law is so absolutely plain that
it n«»ed6 no construction or interpreta
tion." said Senator Weight last night.
"The candidate for legislative office
whose district is wholly within a single
i county is required by the law to file, his
petition with the county clerk or reg

When he has so filed he has met the
requirements of the law. The intent
and the letter of the law is plain. The
clerk or registrar is required to for
ward such petitions to the end that
they may all be kept together by the
secretary of state."
Acting- on the advice of President
Thomas V. Cator, the San Francisco
election commission has given no heed
to the press reports' from Sacramento.
The local commission has forwarded all
legislative petitions as rapidly as they
were verified. On Monday tlie'commis
sion will meet and formally order the

An alleged desire, to take advantage
of the 5 to 1 odds against Anderson
went wrong yesterday and the machine

popular belief that his supporters were
willing to back their faith in him with
their money.;; ["'\u25a0*:'*\u25a0
BBTTI N G 31 VSTEH X
Senator "Billy" Ralston let it be
known yesterday that some of his
friends had intrusted him with $2,000
to be laid with Frank Daroux at the
price of 5 to 1 that Daroux had repeat
edly quoted against the machine can
didate, without getting action. Accord
ing to Ralßton, Daroux had refused the
bet, saying that the . odds quoted by
him were what they should be, ' but
that he was not betting.
When Daroux was asked for an ex
planation last night he said: "1 have
not seen Ralston, nor has he called me
up. I was Informed at the hoteKthat
he wanted to lay some money on Ander
son and that he haxl a certified check.
He does not need a certified check. I
am making a book. His word is good.
All be needs do is phone me that" he
wants to get his money down and he
will be on. He knows the law. He
knows the writing of the ticket is a
felony. He knows the system of mem
ory betting that prevails in this state
and he knows. I do not welch. •• 1 have
left word at the hotel that all he need
do Ms notify me that he wants to bet
his money. He knows that If he wins
he can come around and get his money.
Those fellows have got to do pome bet
ting for. the benefit of the public and
I'm going to get it as cheap a^ I can.
I have left. word that I will take $1,000
at 5 to 1 'and $1,000 at 3 ' to 1, which
makes $2,000 at 4 to V. or $8,000, of my
money against their $2,000 that Ander
son is not nominated."
RAI-STOX EVASIVE
A messenger tapped Daroux on the
arm and informed him that Senator
Ralston was at the.St. Francis anxious
to lay $2,000. When Daroux reached
the hotel two blocks away Ralston had
left, ostensibly because Daroux' repre
sentative had explained to ,bim . that
his demand for a. certified -check to. be
deposited with a stake holder would
not be met and thai the v bet could.be
made only in a manner that would.con
form to the system -of book- making
made necessary by the anti -gambling
law. Daroux- was more conservative
about the'.Ralston near bet -tlian : the

UNITED RAILROADS
CLAIMS GEARY LINE
Stale Asks Court to Declare
Forfeited the Franchise for
Abandoned Tracks
s . :-.; \u0084 .— •: y : :.; - . '-v
Tirey Ford Argues That Grant
Can Not Be Set Aside When
. Regularly Made
The suit begun by. the people of. the
state" of California -against the" United
Railroads to have the superior -court
declare forfeited the franchise tinder
which, the street railroad corporation
claims the right to run cars in, Geary
'street' from Taylor to Kearny was ar
gued before' Judge Sea well '; yesterday
on demurrer. Tirey Lv Ford repre
sented the railroad and Jesse Steinhaft
appeared for .the people. \u25a0 \u25a0!
. The United- Railroads asserted . -its
ownership, of, franchises entitling it F to
run ' cars' >•' ori : five blocks of Geary street
as a means of- hampering the city? in
Its endeavor, to establish a municipal
system , in 1 Geary, street. . The claim of
the United Railroads -was founded, on
musty . franchises acquired from the
Market , street railway company- at the
time.' the Calhbun merger was* formed.
The ; Market street company, had. previ
ously, purchased thetfranchiscs from the
Central railroad" company, ( and- the
North Beach' and, Mission railroad com
pany, to which they we're granted 'by
the* board of supervisors November 12,
.1579.\ "\u25a0 : . "\u25a0 W'-"^i-"' •
TRACKS WERE ABASDOXEB
Never having used : the franchises
they are ..forfeit I on-.' that, ground, alone,
so far as the^United Railroads is con
cerned. But 'it is alleged in behalf of
the state that the Market; street com
pany was unable to transfer 1 the fran
chises'to ; the United Railroads for the
reason that the first named company,
abandoned ', the tracks in .March, 1597,
and that on thft-22d day.of thatinonth
the board of supervisors passed a reso
lUtioh declaring the company had aban
doned its right to run cars oi| the. rails,
and ordering that the tracks be re
moved. ' .'.-.' \u25a0 \u25a0 . \u25a0'.'\u25a0 \u25a0 ,
In arguing the demurrer yesterday
the- main .point made by the United
Railroads attorney, was that no cause
of action; was- stated in the complaint,
inasmuch as, under the statutes, the
onlyreason for which a franchise could
be forfeited was -that, it had -been
usurped or wrongfully obtained in the
first place: In this case it was ad
mitted by the plaintiff that the fran
chises were regularly granted In 18 ( 9.
JUDICIAL FORFEITURE AVANTED
| Steinhart • replied tliat until a judg
ment of "forfeiture was obtained,: the
franchises were still in existence. The
franchises must be .forfeited by ju
dicial decreed he said, and that was
what the' state was asking for.-.
Judge Seawr-U took the demurrer un
der submission. ; A motion .was also
made by Ford to quasli the service of
summons on the defendant, because the
company had been "served with ;an
amended complaint as well as.with. the
original complaint. ; Judge -Seawell said
that there was nothing in that; point.
Platt's Appeal Dropped
Apparently /theVunited Railroads has
determined to; accept as finaUthe de
cision of the supreme court which de
clared valid the. proposal of the people
to construct and operate the Geary
street road.. When the decision ".was
handed down .June 25, Attorney W.vX
Brobeck. in behalf of -..the plaintiff,
Horace G. Platt, announced ' that he
would apply for a rehearing, but that
he would not take'advantage of the 20

tition. ' ;

CHINESE GAMBLERS
LOSE LEGAL FIGHT
Judge Troutt Dissolves Four Re
straining Orders^gainst ,
i Police Raiders
Sergeant Matheson, in Court,
Tells of Seyeral Visits to
Ross Alley, "Club";
\u25a0 Judge Troutt* yesterday lifted fou r .
injunctions; he had grantcJ last, month
restraining the police from interfer
ing; with the member* of Chinatown
ffanibli rig houses. ; lie dissolved the in
junctions of his own .volition, having
come to the V conclusion that .they had
already been. in force. too long.-
' The' 1 establishments in question, and
the date on whicli the Injunctions were
signed are: Sam Kee &Co., 739 Grant
avenue, June 15; Shanghai company,
667- Jackson \u25a0 street," June 27 ; -Foo Yick
& Co.illl Waverly place, June 25; Ho
LeeYuhiclub, 67 Ross alley, 1 June 29.
'.'I do not .wish to-be putin the posi
tion of staying the hands of thepolice
in the • execution of j their lawful duty,"
said Judge Troutt in dissolving the in
junctions. 'When I-slgned these tem
:porary' restraining orders I had no
idea they would be r kept in force as
long as they .have been."
SAPE'TIIiIi THURSDAY
-Under a stipulation. between the dis
trict attorney and> the- lawyer for the
plaintiffs . there will be no: raids on
Sam Kee, & Co. before. Thursday next
at 2 o'clock. There. is no agreement or
injunction,: however, that will prevent
the police raiding the other three, ex
cept that the HoLee^YunTtlub may be
entered only twice.Jaily. .
In the case of Foo Yick & Co. a peti
tion for an order" against the. police-to
show cause why a permanent injunc
tion | should not issue was heard by
Judge Troutt in the afternoon. Carroll
Cook. A. S. Newburgh and KlHot M.
Epsteen, . attorneys for the gambling
house, exhibited much; chagrin, because
of the dissolution of the preliminary
injunction. Cook>nd Newburgh mftde
use of every possible ; technicality. -to
keep out : the testimony of. Sergeant
Matheson; head->of the ; Chinatown
squad, who was-called'as a witness, by
Assistant. District Attorney Aylettß.
Cotton. Their, efforts were unavailing.
DEEMS .EVIDENCE; SUFFICIENT
"Sufflcient jncriminating evidence,"
remarked Judge Troutt, "has been' pro
duced to make it plain to me that I
should not* hold ;the hands of the po
lice.",-:"' .',,',-\u25a0* -.':.' \u25a0 \u25a0"; ' ;v. r : ; ; ' •*:.\u25a0
Further, hearing; of the case went
over to Thursday at 2 o'clock.
In an affidavit filed with the county
clerk yesterday Sergeant ' Matheson
told why. he smashed j the doors of the
I^iLung society at 18-20 Ro.«s aUfy
the 'night of July. 13. The day' before
it had been, agreed in Judge Conley's
court between the attorney for "the
club and District Attorney Fickert that
twice in every -21 hours the police
would , be given' peaceable admission to
the ! club' premises. : ; In pursuance of
this agreement Matheson and: his men
presented themselves at the -doors \u25a0] of
the club: on the 13th. but. were refused
admission and ; therefore\bfoke in, find
ing numerous :ga,mbling layouts, lot
tery tickets and $1,100 that was being
used in the .games. ,/' .
-thief of' Police .'Martin filed an affi
daylt: yesterday ;denying that ;he was
responsible" for the damage: to its "prem
ises '.complained- of. by the , Fong Lee
club in .the complaint upon; which the
club obtained a' temporary injunction.

an agreement:on the: price and the' time of delivery.
