DYNAMITE ENDANGERS TRAIN SPEEDING WITH PRESIDENT Mexican Watchman Discovers Men Placing Explosive Under El Capitan Bridge, Which Special Crossed den from view in the steel.net work of girders and other pieces| which go t« make up such a section of a bridge. The dynamite was attached to a fuse •at least 10 feet long-, which was ex posed to view. •On the next pier, which was about the middle of the bridge, we found an other bunch of sticks. Stones had been placed over these sticks to hide them. There was no fuse attached to them, the man who placed them there evidently knowing that when the first lot exploded the concussion would set' off the others. Two more dynamite stocks were found at one end of the bridge. but. evidently, these were left there by mistake.

VAN SMITH [Special Dispatch to The Call] LOS ANGELES. Oct. 16. — President Taft made friends in southern Cali fornia today. In the very hotbed of the La Follette sentiment in California the presidents exposition of the methods of the men who fought him in the extraor dinary session of congress mon hh~n the support of some of the men who have been known as the most radical of the progressive republicans in Los Angeles county, which is to say the most radical progressives in California. I do not pretend to say that President Taft's visit to Los Angeles county, which closes his tour of California, has resulted In a change of front on the part of the UuMff organisation, which has the machinery of the republican party fa this county under its thumb. I do mean to say, and say most emphati cally, that men who were most vio lently opposed to the president before they heard his speech at the auditorium this morning are for the president to night. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN If the Los Angeles county conven tion were to be assembled tomorrow for the selection of delegates to the state convention undoubtedly it would instruct its delegates to elect La Follette deelgates to the national convention and to fight for state in struction for the Wisconsin senator. The sutiation would be much the same tomorrow if the presidential primary now under discussion by the state ad ministration people were held. Thanks to a situation preserved by Lissner and the governor, when they refused to permit the last legisla ture to amend the primary election law. the changed sentiment in Los An gesel county need not be considered as affecting the fractional complexion of the delegation from California. The chief interest in that change relates to California's vote at the general election next November. o , I doubt very much that the '.most rabid follower of Lissner , believes there is the remotest chance of pre venting the nomination of Taft lon i the first ballot. Strong' evidence of this contention: is to be found in the fact ' that the „ dyed in the wool ;followers;of the L.issner machine';are not •talking' about the delegation from California; 1 but about carrying the /state for Pro fessor Wilson at the November election. M) ArOI,O«IKS 3IADE* They make no apologies for their attitude.' In fact they go so - far as to pay that" the Earl T newspapers \ will not support Taft and that they will support Wilson in the event he receives the democratic nomination. ;* They are not prepared to say that Earl will sup port Harmon, if the Ohio man is itomi nated *by the democratc, but they do «ay: that he and ■ the i organiza tion will r not support Taft in any event. Had |president Taft not visited Los Angeles county that might easily have meant that this -county,! would go dem ocratic. After what 1 have; heard to day' from some of the stanchest pro gressives in California, I question Liss ner's ; ability 'to deliver Los Angeles county to democracy, if • at «the :same time I, concede his , ability to send a LaFollette delegation to the state con vention ; and > LaFollette delegates *to the national- convention; from the dis tricts ;! that ..will be carved out" <>; Los Angelo-s county. '• At the Auditorium this morn ing- the president talked to an -audience of nearly : 4,000 * persons., who gave the liveliest . evidence of their '. appreciation of his attitude toward = the tariff * meas ures ' that "he vetoed at the extra ses sy>n. ; • MOTIVBI SHOWN" II 1 Tjte president made no direct at tsok on the motives of the "put htm in a holo" senators, led by L*aFoHette. He discussed the provisions of the cot ion bill, the farmers' free list and the wool bill. By his exposition of the provisions of the bills and the manner In which those bills were drawn the president showed here. as he has shown wherever he has discussed the tariff bills, that they were introduced and passed for political purposes only. At Pasadena, an hour after the. pres ident had concluded his tariff speech in Los Angeles, one of the rock ribbed progressives of southern California said to me: *; "No man could ;hear that speech ■without appreciating: the honesty of the president's; motives and the charac ter of the bills he vetoed. He is \the kind of 'man;-we want at the head •of our national a,ffairs." '"''' ';/T~- SIGNIFICANT i STRAWS One swallow does not make a spring. but the -conversion of tftis old ironclad progressive, who has fought the battles ly would have brought death t« all aboard the special train. To catch the fiend who planned and nearly executed the horrible crime it will be necessary to place blood hounds on his trail and dogs will be on the scene early tomorrow. It is said that more than a score of the shrewdest men employed by the South !em Pacific will be at work on the I case tomorrow and that officers | throughout the state will be given a ! description of the wanted man. The officers said the dynamite would j test 40 per cent —enough, they declared, 'to Mow the bridge to atoms. They be- I lievee that the watchman came along just as Uip dynamiter was placing th*> I explosive in the second pi^r, as this is I about the spot where the watchman ! says he first saw the man. From a position directly above the I dynamite on top of the bridge the man could have commanded a distant view of any train approaching. With the 10 feet of fuse lighted, it was said by the officers, he could easily have had time in which to place himself beyond I any danger of personal harm by the explosion, and, if experienced with dy namite, he easily could have so timed his fuses as to destroy any train he I wished. I of Lissner. is a significant' indication ! that the applause of the Los Angeles audience was not entirely empty. That toe I^a Follette repudiation of | the tariff commission idea was not ! popular in southern California, ome it I w«s understood, was indicated by (ho ■ repeated cheers of the big audience and j the storm of applause that greeted the i president's declaration that he would ! scorn to make the slightest suggestion I to the tariff board and that its members i would scorn him if he should attempt 1 to mako any such suggestion. Concluding his discussion of the wool bill and its veto, the president said: TRIE TO PLATFORM "I feel that the wool schedules are too high, but I am a limited protection j ist. elected on a protection platform , and pledged to the people of the I I'nited States to protect the industries |of the country. That bil? was intro j duced as a free trade measure. 1 was I bound to veto it." The insincerity of his "put him in a lioie" opponents, pretending to be re i publicans, was perhaps best shown by j the president's exposition of the provi ! sions of the farmers' free list bill. That | bill provided that agricultural ma ; chinery should come in free. Tiiat, indeed, was a great concession to the farmers of the United States. The measure of its benefits to the American farmer may be found in the fact that the Imports of farming machinery amount to approximately $47,000 a year and that they come in free now because they come from England, where our machinery is admitted free and where our manufacturers undersell the native manufacturers. DISCTSSES I,KMO\ TARIFF l>iscussing the tariff on lemons the president touched a subject close to the hearts of the people of southern California. Again he was able to show without direct reference to them that the tactics employed by the I>a Fol lette crowd were designed to make po litical capital without any reference to the needs of the American producer. In conclusion the president said: "Until w.e know all' the facts;about the. cost of . production " at f home and abroad the lemon tariff will , remain unchanged.".' Nor did the president stop there. He deciared -with the utmost evidence that he would veto every tariff measure passed without the fullest investiga tion by the tariff board or other in vestigation that would enable him and the people to know exactly what ef fect the bill would have upon the par ticular industry touched by it. Governor Johnson and a party great ly reduced in numbers accompanied the president to Los Angeles and will re main with him until his train leaves for Butte to.morrow afternoon. The governor took no part in the demon stration today, beyond lending his presence. MAYOR WELCOMES TAFT The president was welcomed to Los Angeles by Mayor George Alexander, who thanked the president in the name of Los Angeles for the many helpful things he had done for this city and for Los Angeles county. Governor Sloane of Arizona and Gov ernor Tasker L. Oddie of Nevada met the president In San Francisco, and Governor Oddie will remain with the party until it reaches Salt Lake. Gov ernor Oddie is progressive in the best senes of the term. He made his fight for the repub!! an nomination last year without funds and upon an avowedly progressive platform, fie won the nom ination and defeated his democratic opponent at the general election on a progressive platform. From a hostile democratic legislature he has wrung a dozen progressive measures. lie is not alone in his fight in Nevada. The peo ple are with him and have demon strated their confidence. He told me to day that there was no anti-Taft senti ment among the republicans of Nevada and that he did not know of a single La Follette man in the state.

Hairing* ton Is on Hand Commission Disposes of Matter of Great Interest in a Few Minutes < niiflnueri From Page 1 wife of U E. Chenoweth, vice president of the Echo Publishing company, was the pioneer in Kern county. M,iss Char lotte Carlin of Long Beach was the first ■me to make affidavit in L*>s Angeles county. Two hundred and fifty volun teer deputies have been named in Ix>s Angeles county to register the women. Registrar E. C Harrington's wife was on hand yesterday afternoon at the meeting of the election commission, pre pared to be tiie first woman to register in rfan Francisco, but her hopes were temporarily blighted when Cator's res olution was defeated. Because there probably will be no election held in this city drtrinp the re maining months of this year at which women can vote, it is not expected that main women will avail themselves of the "opportunity of registering until after the first of the year. MIST STATK AGE Kvery woman registering will b*» re auired under oath to give her exact age. The law is explicit on this point. When the official canvas* 6f the vote on the constitutional amendment was begun yesterday Miss Maud Younger of Mm Wage Earners' league, Mrs. Helen W Hall of the woman's suffrage party and Miss M. A. Ross of the Equal Suf frage league were present to check the vote on amendment No. S. Mrs. C. H. Briggs. a suffragist of Nevada, was also present during the day. The canvass progressed as far as the eighteenth pre cinct of the thirty-third district and showed a gain of 12 votes for suffrage and 147 for the recall. Following is the opinion of President Cator and appended to it is the resolu tion providing for immediate registra tion, which was defeted by the com mission: DESIRE TO REGISTER I am informed that women desire to offer to make affidavits of regis tration at this office. The deputies require the instruction of this board. It is a felony to allow a per son not entitled to register as a voter to do so if it be known such p«r*on is not entitled to register. Public officers, therefore, are com pelled to act with care and to have knowledge as to the conferring of a new political status or privilege upon persons never before Jiaving the right of suffrage. The political code, by section 1290, has specified the only kind of knowledge upon whi^h public of ficers can be compelled to act in al lowing women to exercise the right to vote at an election. The case of Kingsbury v.«. Nye (district court of appeal's) held that for the. pur pose of determining the amount ot salary due. under a constitutional amendment increasing salaries that after the secretary of state had filed his statement showing the amend ment to have been adopted such salary would attach from the day the proposition was voted upon. NOT OFFICIAL M)TK 'E This was an amendment confer ring a property right, and it was not held that a. public officer could he required to pay out tho state moneys before the secretary of state had completed bis statement of the vote In the state, and 1 d<> not hes. tHte to say that it never will be held that a public officer can be re quired to take notice by press dis patches, and while the process of determining the result of a state , election by public canvass of the votes is everywhere proceeding that such an amendment has been adopted. - , , *, Press dispatches relating to the result of an election appearing from semiofficial returns before the of ficial returns have been canvassed and tabulated and added by the sec retary of state, as required by law, do not constitute the kind of knowl edge which is referred to in the rules defining matters rfs to which courts may take judicial notice. PROVISIONS SPECIFIC In this matter the law has spe cifically provided the kind of knowl edge which is required. It may well be that certain classes of constitutional amend ments relating to property rights which can be realized from the day of election without requiring pub lic officer* to take notice of the adoption of such amendment until after the compilation by the secre tary of state, may be held to have vested such property rights from the day of such election TVhej-e however, a political right or privilege is newly conferred, which can only be realized by the acts of public officers In receiving and depositing ballots, or giving the right to deposit ballots at an election, a different situation exists. If such votes in great numbers should be commingled at an elec tion before the secretary of state makes his statement, the election might be rendered hopelessly Il legal and the public interests jeopardized thereby. This amend ment confers the right to vote; registration is only incidental. The requirement to register did not al ways exist, only since 1866. In some cities with freeholders' char ters registration closes but a very few days before an election. DECISION NECESSARY This question" must be decided with reference to every possible contingency that can or might ex ist, eifrier no»v or at any past or future period. In fact, it resolves itself into a question whether a woman obtained the absolute right to vote at an election immediately subsequent to October 10. 1911. if there had been no registration laws. If such right existed on Tuesday night, October 10. 1911. at 12 t». m., then if an election had i>een held on Wednesday following land there had been no registration laws), women could everywhere at such an election have compelled the re ception of their votes, although the ballots were still being counted in the polling places in a large portion of the state and the press reports & Jf Do You Feel This Way?

Yoln county —The shock of the apparent defeat of the suffrage amendment has hardly worn off, although we are filled with joy by our success. That this success has been largely contributed by The Call is unquestionable. The first real hope that we had was when its full page editorial announced its championship of our cause. The Call undoubtedly encouraged many papers of the state to assist in the woman suffrage cam paign, though we are glad to say that this was not the case here, for every paper but one in Yolo county had been publishing our articles since the leg islature passed the amendment. We felt certain that the eighth amendment would carry, but we were unprepared for the light vote throughout the state. This easily is explained in the agri cultural districts, for this is the harvest time. Every availablo man is hard at work and the loss of half a day to go six or more miles to the polls may mean the loss of thousands of dollars, should the fall rains set In early. But the loss of these good farmers' votes came near losing us our amendment, for American born farm ers of this state are in favor of equal suffrage, almost to a man.

Chinese Teas All Colored The United States practically is the only big user of Chinese green teas in the world, and as all Chinese tea found with coloring matter will be sent back It will be a total loss to the exporters until they can by some means remove the coloring matter.

Fredericks How a good man may be made to suffer for the misdeeds of the other kind of man through a similarity of names is illustrated in the case of Dr. D. P. ]j. Fredericks, whose conduct at the St. Francis hotel Saturday night caused the police to eject him. Fredericks made an attempt to see President Taft personally, using as his credentials a bogus telegram of intro duction, purporting to have been sent by a well known New Yorker, a friend of the president. The fraud was quick ly discovered by the hotel attaches. On account of it and also because of his queer behavior the man was turned out of the hotel by the police. This Fredericks is best known as a golf expert, but he is also a physician. There is another doctor in town whose name is enough like that of the golf ing physician to be an occasional cause of embarrassment to him. That other is Dr. M. W.
