Chief White Has Referred Letter
Containing Allegations to
District Attorney
Sweeping Grand Jury Investiga
tion Is Expected to Result
From Complaint
A sweeping grand Jury investigation j
will be the result of a letter sent to j
Chief of Police White yesterday by
certain Chinese, complaining of wide j
open gambling in Chinatown, and the j
unqualified statement that the gam- J
biers were paying for police protection.
The communication was turned over
to district Attorney Fickert yesterday
afternoon by White and subpenas have
been issued for the men who signed
their names to the letter.
"These Chinese make the accusation
that gambling is running in Chinatown
and back it up with the statement that
the' sergeant in the district is being
bribed to allow them to run," said White.
"I will sift this matter to the bottom.
Sergeant Ross, head of the Chinatown
-quad, has advised me that gambling
lias not been permitted in Chinatown
since he took command about seven
weeks ago.
"However, the Chinese have made
changes that various games have been
permitted in the clubs. I will leave
the entire matter in the hands of
?ickert and the grand Jury."
The Chinese complain that swing to
the notorious gambling games they
have, been unable to rent a large build
ing at Washington street and Waverly
place.- Gambling causes tong wars, they
say, and if the games of chance are
"topped by the police their building
can "be rented.
The letter received yesterday is as
Hon. D. A. White, chief of police,
Hall of Justice, city:
Pear sir: We hereby take the liberty of
writing you in regard to tbe gambling which
is dow going on in Chinatown, we being
iaterested In lenses and find that we
are unable to rent the larger part of our
bnildings on account of gambling which is
going on aronnd across the street from
the property belonging to us.
Many people desiring to rent same are
afraid of wars and trouble which always
result from gambling. We have appealed to
tbe police in the district, but they do not
appear to pay any attention to same.
Below we submit to yon the names and ad
dresses where you can find gambling going
on continually.
We have a bnilding at Washington atreet
and Waverly place which is almost empty.
The family people are complaining about
{ramblers in the building, bnt we can not
stop it. We have ordered the gamblers to
move, but they pay no attention to our
command. These gamblers have informed us
that the sergeant in this district allows them
to run, as they pay him every week for this
permission, and that there will be no
trouble for us. Here you can find gambling
at any time and at some places a Chinese
stands in front telling passersby that they
can play fan tan. pie gow and other games.

Peace Terms Suggested
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18.—Correspond
ence relative to possible peace In Mexico
was made public here tonight by
United States Senator William Alden
Smith of Michigan, chairman of the
senatorial committee investigating the
alleged relation of American interests
to the Mexican rebellion.
The correspondence Includes a letter
from R. Gomez Robelo. treasurer of
General Pascual Orozco's revolutionary
movement, to President Madero of Mex
ico, In response to what Senator Smith
said were peace suggestions from the
Mexican federal government to the
Senator Smith said he thought the
American people were entitled to know
the intentions and beliefs of the Mex
icans as expressed In their correspond
"Mr. president: I again repeat that
we are Inspired by love of the father
land, of liberty and of Justice, and we
are moved by the contemplation of mis
eries, of the suffering of the people, the
atrocious offenses against the poorer
classes and against free men.
-The facts are here: In tbe innumer
able terrible incidents seen in the
hovel, in the fields, in the court, in
the prison, in the prefecture and In the
cemetery and on tho highway. These
facts are undeniable. The revolution
wishes them to cease. If the 'desire of
the revolution is just, it should be com
plied with, and that Immediately.
"War, slaughter continues. The rev
olution will not end, for the leaders
themselves can not restrain it in face
of a determined national will, until jus
tice reigns and patriotic laws and dis
interested measures are adopted.
"General Orozco has been told
through me that the government
wishes to bring about peace. The gen
eral desires to bring about liberty. If
it be possible to unite these two in
one patriotic work—and good will
alone is necessary—we are saved. The
revolution i Is; on before |theTcou~fr
try,' awaiting your decision. We will
doour duty to the end." '■'■■■

Fillmore Street Merchants Give
"Get Together" Smoker
to Mission Boosters
With fraternity as their keynote and
the good of San Francisco as their aim,
the Fillmore Street Improvement asso
ciation gave a smoker in Majestic hall
last evening- in honor of the Mission
Improvement association that proved to
be one of the most enthusiastic "booster"
meetings ever held in this city.
Several hundred members of both or
ganizations gathered about the long
tables laden with dainty viands and re
freshing beverages and listened to the
addresses made for the betterment of
their respective districts and the mu
nicipality as a whole. Facing the
speaker's table a large cartoon, typify
ing the two districts, Fillmore street
and Pacific Heights and the Mission,
across which President Barrett of the
former association was depicted ex
tending to President Culllnan the hand
of fellowship and a welcoming smile,
afforded the Inspiration for wit and
repartee by the speakers -who addressed
the assemblage under introduction of
the toastmaster, C. L. Laumeister.
Rev. D. O. Crowley spoke on the union
of the two associations and the results
that would he derived from such co
operation. President W. W. Barrett
extended his welcome to the guests
from the Mission and to Mayor James
Rolph Jr., who sat on the right of the
toastmaster during the evening. Presi
dent Eustace Cullinan wittily responded.
The principal address of the even
ing was made by Lucius I_> Solomons,
an eloquent exposition of the improve
ments that will be effected by the com
pletion of the Fillmore street and Twin
peaks tunnel projects.
"I am willing to wager that there are
many men in this room," the speaker
said, "who have never been on Tele
graph hill. I will go farther and say
that there are more than 50 men pres
ent who have never been on top of
Twin peaks."
When the laugh of acquiescence to
this sally subsided, he continued by
saying that the greatest problem San
Francisco has had to face has been that
of transportation.
"Rome, the capital of the ancient
world, had its seven hills. San Fran
cisco has nearer 70, and in the city
today there are many men who have
lived their lives in the Mission and have
never put their foot in the North beach.
There are. on the other hand, many in
the northern sections of the city who
are wholly unfamiliar with the warm
belt section of the Mission district.
When San Francisco unites all the
buslnesa centers by means of the pro
posed tunnels, she will be a metropolis,
until then she will remain a residence
Mayor Rolph made a short speech, in
which he spoke of the pleasure he took
as a former president of the Mission
Improvement association at attending
the gathering, significant as it is with
good for the city as a whole.
"The results to be obtained from the
Panama-Paciflo exposition are incalcu
lable," he said, "but it is by such co
operations as this meeting represents
that their benefits will become perma
nent and enduring."
Among the guests at the board were
Supervisor A. P. Giannlnl, Paul Ban
croft, Adolf Koshland, Guldo Cagilerl,
Ralph McLaren, George Gallagher,
Alexander Vogelsang. J. Emmet Hay
deh, Byron Mauzy and W. A. ttfurdock;
M. H. Bobbins Jr., president of the San
Francisco Chamber of Commerce; Fred
Churchill, secretary of the Mission Im
provement association and of the board
of public works; Charles Bancroft,
Warren Shannon and many others.

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SANTA ROSA Sept. 18.—Edward H.
Hart, candidate of the republicans for
congressman from the first California
district, opened his speaking tour to
night with a well attended meeting in
the Columbia opera house. The gath
ering was attended by hundreds of
men and women and Hart was assured
that he would receive an exceptionally
large vote in this county.
Hart avowed himself a protectionist
in so far as the tariff related to the
products and Industries of Sonoma
county, which he said were common to
other large divisions of the first
district. He warned his hearers
against the dangers of free trade, ad
vocated by both his opponents, and ex
pressed a belief that a congressman's
first duties were to his constituents
and their interests. He promised to
give to his work the same careful
attention that he would to his own
Hart's address was eloquent at times,
and he was repeatedly cheered. Ira
D. Pyle presided and introduced the
speaker. Hart will speak at meetings
to be held at Marysville Thursday
night, at Oroville Friday night and at
Chico Saturday night.

I were 20. There is nothing to equal
