and the next e:pres;3ed his regret for
being concerned i:i the affair.
Tn speakins of tha interview with
Smith. McKutt says:
"1 have long known Corporal Smith.
T knew him and his general record
while he was a patrolman at the cen
tral station tn Kddy street. Smith told
ma that he was in consultation with a,
superior officer in reference to the
booking of Stone and of the identifica
tion of "Red' Kelly. This superior of
ficer. Smith told me, was Sergeant Ar
thur Layne. Layne's refutation in the
police department is enviable. He is
known as a man of absolute honesty
and one who can not be diverted from
prosecuting evil doers. Smith told me
that Layne advised him to get the loot
from Stone under any pretense and
then to chare* him with robbery.
"I told Smith that he need not worry,
provided he was innocent of any wrong
doing. 1 asked Smith why be did not
order Stone charged with robbery, but
to this question he made no answer.
"The Thursday that Stone was dis
missed in .Judge Weller's court I called
on Police Commissioner Theodore Roche,
whom I have known for 18 years, and to
him I told the history of the Kelly rob
bery as it has come to me. Roche said
that lie would call the attention of the j
police commission to the affair. That. ]
night the commission did meet and the i
matter was talked over for a consider

"On the contrary, j believe he is
honest enough, but 1 do not believe
he chooses the right friends. Former
Police Commissioner Joseph Sullivan is
allowed too many favors in the police
department. 1 am sure, also, that the
real imminent danger to the morals
of the police department exists in the
prrspiKf of a trusted man in Chief
White's office.
"I don't care -who the guilty ones are.

take this straight up to the grand jury.
As a matter of fact, already I have pre

do not purpose that this investigation

the removal of a few detectives from

small fry, but I intend to break up
fhip ring of grafters that I believe ex
ists in the police department. District
Attorney Fickert has instructed me to
go ahead with the Investigation and to
punish every one concerned.

day and T noticed that the former king

"Another peculiar thing about the
present reign of Kid Sullivan is that
his old time associates, the pickpock
ets anil hunkomen, are no longer on
his calling list. He ha« stricken them
off. Now he will have nothing to do
with theni, but he is out for bigger
game and has taken over the cham
pioning of burglars and highwaymen.
"A well known dive keeper and con
fidant of criminals has told me that Kid
Sullivan has split $10,000 with his
'friends' for protection and expert ad
vice since September 1. T also notice
that there have been very few arrests
on these charges during the time men
"I don't want to give out all of the
details of the reports brought to me
by the private detectives, but I will
say that I think we have sufficient
evidence to convict several well known
police officials, policemen and others

city of crimes that may result in their
being sent to the penitentiary."
President of the police commission
Jesse Cook last night refused to dis
cuss the proposed action of the board
of which he is president in reference
to the action that may be taken.
The district attorney's office has long
suspected that certain officials in the
police department were protecting high
waymen and burglars in return for a
division of the spoils. Since the let of
September the police have made but few
attests in felony cases of this nature,
and it was because of this that District

The combined movement of the Bal

northeastern frontiers of Turkey began
today, while a lull occurred in the
fighting around Scutari.
General Yukovilch, commanding the
northern army of Montenegro, carried
Byelopyle b\* assault and has pro
claimed Montenegrin authority in
Novi-Bazar or old Servia.
Christians are fleeing from the
Turkish interior to join the invading
armies. Hundreds of soldiers in the
uniform of the moslem empire marched
through Sofia under escort today.
They were at first thought to be pris
oners of war, and were jeered at by
the observing crowds until the Servian
escort explained that they were Chris
tians drafted into the Turkish army
against their will, and who deserted
on the first opportunity.
In Sovik. near Monastir. the military

corps of 30,000 will follow as soon as
equipment is complete. According to
a dispatch from Athens, there is no
lack of volunteer material from which
to expand the trained corps to full
war proportions.
General war in the Balkans is now
only a matter of a few days. The re
plies of the Balkan states to the
powers' note, virtually rejecting inter
vention, will be delivered at the va
rious capitals tomorrow and at the
same time notes practically in the
shape of an ultimatum will be sent to
Turkey, demanding autonomy of the
Macedonian provinces.
According to a reliable dispatch from
Home, the Balkan coalition will make
a demand that it will be impossible for
the porte to accept, namely, that the
reforms be executed under control of
the' Kuropean powers and the Balkan
states, and. as a pledge, that the porte
assent to the immediate demobilization
of the Turkish forces.
It is understood the porte will be
given until Tuesday to reply, there
fore there is every probability that
general hostilities will begin before
the week ends.
A Sofia dispatch reports that the
movement of the Bulgarian army has
already begun. The Montenegrins, con
tinning their advance, have captured
Byelopelye, an important strategic
point northwest of Berana, after des
perate fighting. They now are on their
way to Sienitza, 30 miles northeast of
Byelopolye and close to the Servian
frontier, against which they will direct
an attack. It is In this direction that
the Montenegrins expect to join hands
with the Servian army when it ad
vances from the north.
According to a Constantinople dis
patch, Ks.sad Pasha arrived in Scutari
today with reinforcements, raising the
garrison from 12,000 to 20,000 men. Tf
this news is true the Montenegrins will

Porte Provokes Hostilities
Whether for the purpose of furnishing
provocation for war or to show the
Balkan allies that Turkey can not be
intimidated, the government is acting
with an aggressiveness''calculated to
bring on hostilities. The embargo on
Creek ships, the detention of Servian
ammunition and the seizure of Bul
garian railway cars, all constitute bel
ligerent arts.
Creek and Bulgarian nationals in
Constantinople, numbering 1,000 or
more, have been subjected to treatment
designed to irritate those two nations.
Several Turkish women are going to
the front to attend the wounded. This
will mark the beginning of a new era
for the sex.
A consular telegram reports the kill
ing of 12 Bulgarians in Kuprili, Mace
donia, by Turkish soldiers. Massacres
in Macedonia will be an inevitable
feature of the war but it is asserted
here the Turks will not begin them.
Late advices say fighting continues
around Berana. The Montenegrins ad
vnncing toward Cusinje, Plava and
Arona, on the southeastern frontier,
are encountering much resistance and
losing heavily.
Severe fighting has occurred in Tushi,
where the Turks are displaying great
bravery. It is reported that the Turk

Scutari and the sea have stopped the
advance of the Montenegrins.
It is announced that the, porte In

unless he could vote for progressive
candidates. Therefore in order to
make this stupendous system or
fraud effective, progressive candi
dates must in some way be Placea
on the republican ballot so thst
progressiva* masquerading as re
publicans might vote for them.
This necessitated additional corrup.
and fraudulent practices even more
reprehensible than the others. TnS
law of California requires that a
candidate for nomination at the
primaries must make affidavit
showing the party to which ha
belongs; that he. intends to amil
ate with that psrty, and that ne
will vote for a majority of its can
didates. ~ .
If a supporter of Roosevelt in
tending to support him and affiliate
with the progressive party matte
such an affidavit then he made a
false affidavit, and if he made «
knowingly and willfully h« was
guilty of perjury. And whether he
made the affidavit willfully or not,
his continuance on the republican
ballot as a candidate after he had .
determined to support the pro- |
gresstve candidates was fraudulent
and in violation of the letter and
the spirit of the law. and his nom
ination might be successfully con
tested on that sround.
Fnder the peculiar law of Cali
fornia, the candidates for the legis
lature, nominated at the primary
election, are made a convention to
nominate candidates for presiden
tial electors at the coming elec
tion for their parties. By mak
ing affidavit that they were repub
licans, candidates for the legisla
ture, who were in fact progressiva,
were nominated on the republican
ticket. * » * Thus, by fraudulent
affidavits, they have pained control
of the machinery of that party of
which they are not members, in
the interest of the candidates of
another party.
By voting as republicans. the
progressives also secured power to
select the state central committee,
not of their own pavrty, but of the
republican party, t-o which they do
not belong, and the candidates of
which they are using every effort,
fair or foul, to defeat.
The senator quotes from the resolu
tions of the state central committee
declaring the nominations of Taft and
Sherman fraudulent, and endorsing the
candidacy of Roosevelt, and declares
that "no kind of sophistry or evasion"
can conceal the fact that this whole
proceeding is fraudulent. It is pitiful
that a great movement for reform in
politics in California that had achieved
so much and promised to do so much
more should have been brought to
this sorry pass."
The right and honorable thing for
the progressives to have done, he says,
was to place their candidates on the
ticket as progressives, by petition, so
that every voter could vote intelli
gently for whom he pleased, knowing

Extensive Frontage
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SACRAMENTO, Oct. 13— Work began
yesterday on the construction of the
deep .water canal which will eventually
plve the city of Sacramento two miles
more of water front than at present.
The canal, although being con
structed by private enterprise, will be
of great benefit to the city because sec
tions of the land along the proposed
canal are owned by a score or more In
dividual firms of the city. The plan ts
to construct a canal 2.950 feet in length
with a depth of 24 feet and a width of
300 to 400 feet. A big section of the
frontage on the proposed canal Is
owped by the Sacramento-Slarra rail
road, a Smith Lumber company project.
The Pacific Gas and Electric company
and several other large corporations
own sections of the frontage. The
work will be completed In two years.
It will cost approximately $300,000.

continues, "Is emphasised and made
