If Evidence Warrants He I Will
Seek Removal of City
Pidwell Will Urge Indictment
of Accused Members of
Municipal Boards
There was considerable speculation
yesterday over the developments. •" that
■will follow the letter of,the grand jury
to Mayor Bolph in f which 10 municipal
commissioners were accused of mal
feasance in office and the mayor was
recommended summarily to ' remove
Mayor Solph has requested the grand
jury to furnish him a transcript of evi
dence taken before that body on which
the accusations are based. He • said
that he would not act unless he found j
that the charges against the men were
serious. , -.-":■'■.■ ...-..-: /.,>
--"The city has too many hi"** problems ■
to consider:without giving its time to
petty politics," said 'the mayor.
District Attorney Fickert said that |
the grand jury could not make public
its testimony, even to the mayor, un
less indictments or ? accusations were
returned against the? commissioners.
Charles J. Pidwell, chairman of the
civil service A committee of the grand
jury, will urge that the jury indict Che
accused commissioners. ".-•
. The grand jury probably ■kill do
nothing in the matter until Its regular
meeting Tuesday, when the mayor's
letter to the secretary, John Plover,
will be read' and. the; advice of the
district attorney that -the. proceedings
can not be .made public also will be
given to the jurymen. The mayor's
letter to Plover follows:
1 beg to acknowledge receipt of your favor
nt yesterday's .late, tojrether.with/the re- ,_
port «n<l resolution adopted by the grand * -
jury at its mooting of the 2d Inst. " A'---
Will i;;:*:.-. furnish me-with a copy;
of all the testimony you have taken, upon -
which you have based j the charges against .
. The members of "he -various commissions-,
mentioned, thereby recommending their sum-jS
mary removal from office by me?
I shall need this testimony, and trust
you will favor me with it at your earliest
possible convenience. ;
In discussing the .matter, Mayor
Rolph said: - ... _ _
"There are too many big problems
before the city now for us to be both
ered with matters of petty, politics.'/!
have-.asked .the grand jury /for the
transcript of proceedings on which were
based the accusations* presented to me*
because I want to know the farts se
cured by? the grand jury.
"If these facts warrant-action by me,]
if serious offenses have been committed,
I Immediately will file charges■)against
the commissioners who ) are Involved.
They will' he placed on trial according
to the charter; provisions, and if guilty
of the offenses- charged?/they? will /be
removed from office by me.
' But I. do not. intend to be bothered
with any petty charges arid will not
become involved in. any petty politics. i
There is too much important ) business/
for the city to : transact.//- It would not,
be fair to the people of San Francisco j
for me to consider insignificant mat-|
tors."-. '.".xx7 ."/.■'-*.•' „//?'" ',?//
District Attorney * Fickert, when
shown Mayor Rolph's letter 'to the
grand jury, said: .Jgp^
."It 1 would, be a misdemeanor for any
m ember of'the grand* jury to give -to
i he* : mayor, ; or to) make public /In) any
ay, evidence given before the grand

in court arid) the transcript is presented
to the defendant in "accordance with
the law. '■'■ /■.'-,* -x % x..-\
"There are two ' sections of the code j
dealing * with. (hat .* question, 'and the

testimony from the'; ; grand:jury which
could not be- made public ? than would j
any' private citizen. I shall; give? these |
Instructions to the grand Jury *if they.l
are requested." -
Chairman Charles* J. T Pidwell Of the
civil service committee *of \ the ?;grand
jury has been most "active, in obtain ing
the evidence which resulted, in drafting
thg letter to the. mayor. Pidwell' has
made several' efforts to have the grand
jury indict*; the commissioners, who i: he
beii eves to be guilty . of .improper, con-,
duct. So far no one has been indicted.
Pidwell will continue his efforts to have
the grand jury take;more drastic action
than it has taken. , xjxii /:'?.- --.X V/ ,;

Democrat Calls Hearst "Longest
Leased Liar" and "Marse"
Henry a "Blatherskite"
W. Randolph. Hearst is the "longest
leased .liar" in the world, "Marse"
Henry Watterson is an "old blather
skite": and Champ Clark an "old ; line
politician," : according to James D. Phe
lan, who addressed /near : 100 women
and. a few men in the? assembly hall of
the Phelan building yesterday after
noon* in behalf of : Woodrow Wilson; for
the democratic nomination or /presi
dent. . ,; ■•'; . . y
Phelan assailed Underwood as -too
closely "allied, with the steel* interests,
Harmon as conspiring/ against? Wilson,'
and George" Harvey of Harpers'; Weekly
as Fa- questionable'; friend X of .Wilson.)
Incidentally he /) fired a broadside at
Taft and the whole- republican' party,
so as to leave ;• the field clear for Wil
son ; after he had . disposed .of the lat
ter's democratic opponents. ,)
But Phelan's chief:joy was .in expos
ing Hearst* and his /editorial writers.
He *' charged , Hearst with ', being .' respond
sible for the shooting of Francis J.
Heney during the " graft - prosecution
land he ridiculed the publisher's pre
| tensions :to the 'effect • that/he vcould
j deliver the California , deriiocrcay. to
Champ Clark. .-£-,.-■.•'•'*-'
r Phelan eulogized,the Jersey edu
cator, and gave /a/ glowing historical
sketch of his subject, to whom he re
erred, as; "the? most formidable candi
date before the? democrats for the? nom
ination for president." He charged that
Wall street/ ignored Wilson and that
the interests had'conspired against him.
Wilson .was | pictured as a true progres
sive and the only.? one among thei dem
ocratic aspirants. ; Clark was referred
to as a charming gentleman, but Phelan
said he did not know whether Clark's
name/- should >be • mentioned ■'" at gather
ings of Wilson democrats./// : ; / -
"A Mrs. J. H. Durst,* who presided," spoke
of the literary achievements of' Wilson
