The dynamite was attached to a fuse

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

bridge. but. evidently, these were left
there by mistake.
"There ran be no question as to the ;

President Converts Many With
Exposition of Facts in
Los Angeles
Executive Concludes Successful
Tour of California and
Turns to East
[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
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.
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. ; •
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~-
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:
"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
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
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.

Commission Disposes of Matter

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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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

—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. The farm-

That Japan and Ceylon teas were
practically free from coloring matters
was announced at the treasury depart
ment today. The .Japan and Ceylon
officials and importers have co-operated
with the department in its crusade, but
it is declared that the Chinese importers
have paid no attention to the treasury
edicts and go on coloring their teas
just as ever.
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.
The great pressure that has been
brought upon the treasury department
by tea exporters has been without re
sults. Secretary MacVeagh is deter
mined that the American people shall
be given nothing but the purest tea
to drink. Doctor B^rry and Doctor

"Name Her Mary Alice Adams,"
Is Appeal of Mother Who
Abandoned Girl
Dressed in a gown of white and
tucked in a crocheted shawl, a bounc
ing baby girl six days old, was found
in a basket near the car tracks at San
Jose avenue and Guerrero street short
ly after midnight yesterday morning.
The little orphan was snuggled yes
terday in a white trundle bed in Mount
St. Joseph's home, the ward of Father
Lynch of St. James church. Later the
Catholic Humane bureau took charge
of the babe and sent it to a private
family to be cared for.
The child will be christened Mary
Alice Av\ams. in response to the request
of the unknown mother, who pinned a
note on the infant's dress, asking that
it be given this nam*\
Thomas King of 3739 Twenty-sixth
street found the ba.be and turned >
over to Policeman Fennell. who took
it to the central emergency hospital.
The note found on the baby's clothing
was addressed to Father Lynch and re
quested, besides giving instructions for
christening, that the little one be sent
to Mount. St. Joseph's home. Father
Lynch says he has no idea who the
mother or father of the youngster

Dr. M. W. Frederick Annoyed
by Dr. D. P. L. 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. Frederick, one of the best
known men of his calling in Califor
nia—known not for expertness as to
golf or any other sport, but for his
specialized professional ability.
Nobody who has even the remotest
acquaintance with Dr. M. W. Fred
erick could confuse him with the golf
ing Fredericks of the St. Francis in
cident, but strangers could do —indeed,
they have, much to the annoyance of
Dr. ML \V. Frederick and his friends,
who can't do anything but hope that
the golfing Fredericks will change his
name or his ways or his residence or
all three
