PRESTIGE DEMANDS FAIR, SAYS PRESS Interior Papers Declare Name of State Would Suffer If Bonds Were Defeated "$200,000,000 Spent Abroad Yearly Would Come Here," Says Merced Sun The carr.paig-n for the two constitu tlcnal amendments which will give San Francisco a fund of $17,500.n00 to cl2.im the 1915 fair, is being waged strenuously by the papers in the in terior of the state. Nearly all are print- ; ing editorials and news matter con- j cprr.lng the amendments or the ne- \u25a0 ceaslty of their success to uphold the j name of California. \ Following is en excerpt from an cdi- i torial In the Merced Surr. ; :. " So" far as the exposition tax is j concerned the state will, of course, j have to pay it. if it votes it. The j amount asked for. 50. 000,000. is comparatively small, and is to be j raised by a tax spread over a period cf four yjears — a. million and a quarter each year. San Francisco has raised, by vol untary contributions. SS.SOO.OOO for the fair. In addition to this, it in . tcr.es to bond Itself for $5,010,000 '\u25a0\u25a0: \u25a0 more. It aeks that the state of California vote the other ?5,00n,000 necessary to place the fair on a sound financial footing, and th<= state .ought .to do it, because -while San Francisco will get the most ; j direct benefit from the fair, the ! state at large will get a greater and more last'.r.g: benefit from it. ; '\u25a0DEFEAT WOULD LOSE FAIR An enormous amount of money -*-.iil be poured into California in • ' :9j5 If San Francifco gets the fair. : It is estimated that JsOO.OOO.OQw js \u25a0 spent in Europe every year by American tourists and pleasure seekers, and practically all of that . money, for the year 191?.. ran be turned toward California. In her effort to get th<* fair San Francisco has but one serious com .• ' p»ritor — New Orleans. And the " fight between New Orleans and San '. Francisco has now developed into a f.ght between Louisiana and Cali fornia. At the same time that Cali fornia will be voting on this $5,000,000 tax question. Louisiana will be voting on a * €.000.000 tax proposition to help get the fair for New Orleans. If it should carry in Louisiana and be defeated in Cali fornia there is little doubt but that New Orleans will ?et the fair. STATE CAN" AFFORD TAX California can better afford this $5,000,000 tax than Louisiana be cause Califorr.ia's'assessment roll is fjve times as large as that of Louisi ana. California Is assessed for 52. — 500.000.0fi0. while Louisiana is as sessed for only $500,000,000. Vote for the tax and thereby help San Francisco .get the fair. It will be of tremendous benefit to the whole state. .

The people had rested when court adjourned to this morning, and today the defense will be presented. It is not thought Thompson has many witnesses to call, and the case may be submitted to the jury this evening. Public interest in the .trial was un abated, and the courtroom was crowded all day. Particular interest wa* shown in Paul Parker, the Stanford graduate who was acquainted with Eva Swan, and who visited her while she was dy ing at Thompson's place in Golden Gate avenue. Parker was on the witness, stand only 15 minutes. He was not directly questioned as to whether he was rerponsible for the girl's condition, but in reply to a question put by J. J. Greely, attorney for the defense, which contained an implication that he might have been, Parker answered that he was not responsible. TELLS OF VISITS Parker said that he had known Eva Swan about four years. He told of visiting her at Thompson's flat April 16, when she was rational. The next day he revisited her. but on this oc casion she was irrational in most of her talk. Parker again went to the place April 20. Thompson told him then that Eva Swan's sister had sent $200 to her, and that the girl had been taken to a sanatorium, where she would receive better treatment. Dr. August Jerome Lartigau. assist ant professor of- medicine at the Uni versity of California and formerly in structor at the Johns Hopkins univer sity and Columbia university, was called by Prosecutor Brennan as an expert. After lengthy wrangling be tween the lawyers, Brennan was per mitted to propound a hypothetical question, and the witness said that the symptoms as presented in the question would cause him to conclude that death was due to blood poisoning. The doctor also testified to the. adaptability of the .instruments introduced in evidence for the performing of illicit operations. THOMPSON'S AIDS CALLKD Ben Gordon and Glen Pike, the two men who with Willie Saacke were em ployed to distribute Thompson's adver tising literature, were called as wit nesses. They told of demanding money from the defendant as the price of their silence. Gordon said that Thompson,' after giving him 530, threatened to blow his head off if he asked for more, cash. Gordon "said to Thompson, "I know -what you did at. Eureka street, and if you are not good I will tell." Pike testified that he saw Thompson at Highland Springs with Miss Marie Mes serschmidt. \u25a0 ' Other witnesses connected Thompson and Saacke with the renting of the Eureka street house. \u25a0. Detectives Ed Wren. M. V. Burke and G. H. Richards were among other wit nesses examined. Richards told of the position of the body of Eva Swan when exhumed from the cellar of the Eureka street cottage. ENDS MISERY FROM INDIGESTION OR A SICK, SOUR, GASSY SfOMcn A little Diapepsin makes your out»of=order Stomach feel fine in five minutes The question as to how long you are going to continue, a sufferer from Indi- gestion, Dyspepsia or out of order Stomach is merely a matter of hon- soon yo"u begin taking some Diapepsin. It your stomach is lacking in diges- tive power, why not help the stomach to do its work, not with drastic drugs, but a re-enforcement of digestive agents, su^h as are naturally at work in the stomach. People with weak Stomachs should take a little Diapepsin occasionally and there will be no more Indisestion. CAPTAINS ACT AS BARBER'S SIDEBOYS Retiring Chief Is Rowed From Battleship in Cutter After Presentation of Flag Rear Admiral Edward B. Barry is now commander in chief of the Pacific fleet and what was.. the second division of the fleet is now the first division. It all happened yesterday morning In man of war row, under, a cloudless sky, and was accompanied by the burning of much saluting powder and a great display of gold braid. . Admiral Barry succeeded Admiral Giles B. Harber. whose goodby to the fleet was marked by a double demonstration from the officers of the California, his flagship. They presented the retiring chief with a beautiful silk rear admiral's flag and they manned the oars of- the racing cutter in which he. was rowed ashore. Six captains of the fleet served as side boys. THOMAS SECOND IX COMMAND Admiral Barry was succeeded as com mander of the second division by Rear Admiral Chauncey Thomas, an offlcer who counts his friends on this coast by the. thousand and who looked every inch an admiral as- he- stepped aboard his flagship sjiortly before noon.' The ceremonies 'attending the shift of flags were similar" to those that marked the passing of Admiral Sebree and the elevation of Admiral Harber, whose turn, to pa*s along came yester day. It is all set down in the book of navy regulations,, from which there may be no departure. Promptly at 10 o'clock Admiral Har ber read the orde.rs detaching him from the Pacific fleet.\and as he finished his two starred flag was hauled down to the tune of 13 guns. Admiral Barry, who was on board". the California, in turn read his orders making him.com mander in chief, and -when, he had read down , to the name of the acting sec retary of the navy,: who .signed the orders, the now commander's -flag- was broken • out \u25a0at -the. • masthead of the West Virginia, which is to be the flag ship- of the fleet. \u0084 . . SALLTK FOR COMMANDER . The West Virginia saluted the new flak and then the whole fleet saluted. Admiral Barry left the California and went aboard his own 'flagship. ..'\u25a0 "For about an hour the California ceased to be a flagship, and at the masthead In stead of a rear admiral's flag, there floated Captain .Mayo's; pennant. ; The admiral's barge in which the officers of the. California rowed Ad miral. Sebree- ashore has since been^con verted into a motor, boat.- -The "officers of the flagship. wished to show to Har ber the same courtesy they, had ex tended .to' Sebree, so the- ; racing cutter was brought." to the. starboard gang . way 'and* in this,- w.ith junior, and senior officers' as I oarsmen; - the retiring- ad miral was rowed ashore: .-" The \u25a0\u25a0- band played "Auld Lang Syne" as the "old gentlerrfan" went over the side, and the crew broke the j navy \u25a0by giving him a cheer.. . \u25a0 \u25a0 '. Admiral Thomas, after reporting to Admiral Berry on board the West Vir ginia; reached the ..- California about 11:30. o'clock, and- the armored' cruiser, the best ship in theneet; again became a flagship.'

DUTY ON SULPHURIC PRODUCTS IS DISPUTED Government Wants Rate Im» posed on Sulphur" There are few controversies at this port for the decision of S. B. Cooper, United States general appraiser. He will leave Saturday, for Portland and Seattle.

The local, importers of the product? of this nature want the minimum rate allowed for sulphuriq products, while the government representatives seek to impose the customs duty pro vided for importations of sulphur.

" . . . 1 ' The report' spread "that the* auditor had taken -a stand.". The supervisors rejected the proposed ordinance for the reason that the charter prescribed the salaries,; and ; consequently they could only be raised by charter amendment. In fthe tax collector's office. ..that of the recorder.' and in most of the other municipal offices there were clerks whose positions had been shifted a $25 or $50 peg in years past by just such a measure as was yesterday rejected. Auditor Boyle was reported to have said that if his men could not be raised it would be necessary to, hold up quite a lot of salary demands. Auditor Boyje set these fears at rest. In that office it was given out. that Julius Caesar Saulmann and Supervisor Hocks had been -wrong in their law. The provision quoted in the section de voted to the auditor's office did indeed prescribe salaries, .but the section un der -which the proposed change was in troduced was stated to be, No. 35' of the miscellaneous provisions of the charter, which provides: "When any officer, board, or depart ment shall require additional deputies \u2666- * i*- the - supervisors may by affirmative vote of not less than 14 members authorize such appointments and provide for, the compensation."
