SHOOTING MAY UPSET STATE MOOSE PLANS California Progressives Likely to Lose Johnsdn's Services in Campaign The plans of the California pro gressives to have Governor Hiram Johnson hold a number of meetings in this state during the last few days of the campaign are likely to be upset because of the shooting of Colonel Roosevelt. It will be «~'eral days be fore Roosevelt can leave the hospital. Should the national committee request that Johnson take up the campaign where it was left off by Roosevelt, It is likely that the California pro gressives will acquiesce, although they are becoming very much alarmed as a result of the growth of the Wilson sentiment in California. Several speakers are being primed by Chairman Daniel A. Ryan to stump th e state in an effort to Theck the Wilson wave. Chester Howell is to speak at Stanford university this afternoon and at Palo Alto tonight. He will address i meeting in San Jose tomorrow night. J. M. Oliver will invade Fresno county October 23 to h'.1.l meetings for eight days. Former Governor Pardee will speak in Stockton. Lodi, Modesto and Merced in the near future, and John I. Nolan, who has a congressional fight of his own. will speak at Richmond. Contra Costa county, in an effort to s-ave Bull Moose Sumner Crosby, who is iti imminent danger of a good drub oing at the hands of Mayor Owens of Richmond in the contest for state sen ator. Gustave Brenner, chairman of the republican state central committer, and Thilip Bancroft, secretary of the Roosevelt Republican league, have locked horns because a letter addressed to "Gustave Brenner, Esq.. Chairman republican (Not Progressive or Bull Moose > State Central Committee." was delivered to the progressive headquar ter! and from there returned by Ban croft to the writer of the letter. Wil liam Shipsey of San Luis Obispo. Bren ner thinks that Bancroft might at least have forwarded the Tetter to him at the St Francis hotel. It so happened that Shipsey's letter dealt with a question as to which county central committee in San Euis Obispo should be acknowl edged by the postmaster.

YES Consolidation Amendment NO Amendment Provides For Separate Levies For Bonds Editor The Call: The attempt to manufacture opposition to the pro posed amendment for the formation of cities and counties out .of territory in different counties because of the pre diction that the communities joining San Francisco will have to, assume the burden of her bonded indebtedness is' so that those who are talking it must have moments when they laugh'at tlie credulity of the people j who believe them. The provision of the amendment in question is as follows: Such new consolidated govern ment shall also be liable for all the existing debts and liabilities of any municipal corporation merged therein, but provision shall be made for the payment of all outstanding bonds of such municipalities respectively by taxes levied only upon property assessable therefor, and situate at the time of such levy within the terrltorv of such municipali ties respectively as such territory existed at the time of such con solidation. The above language is that of the attorneys of the Oakland Chamber of Commerce, who complained that the paragraph as it originally stood was ambiguous. I propose to quote the provision in the original amendment,, to shew that the change made by the Oakland attorneys was purely verbal. It was as follows: Such consolidated government shall also be liab'e for all the ex isting debts and liabilities of any municipal corporation merged therein, but provision shall be . made for the payment of all out standing bonds of such municipali ties by taxes levied upon the prop erly liable therefor at the time of such consolidation. It would seem that as long as the Oakland Chamber of Commerce attor | neys undertook to criticise this lan guage at all, it was their duty to make a thorougli job of it and make it abso lutely unambiguous. . If then there is any ambiguity in the provision as it now stands, the responsibility is theirs, for if they had in mind the objection that is now being urged and omitted to provide against it, they were guilty of Insincerity. If they did not have it in mind they were not the astute law yers that the Oakland chamber repre sented them to be. At any rate, a con j sideration of the proprieties would sug j gest that they discourage an attack ! which exposes them to either horn of j the dilemma. In the attack that has been made on this provision three classes of bonds have been discussed. First, bonds sold prior to consolidation; second, bonds authorized but not sold at the consolidation, and, third, bonds au thorized after consolidation. INSOLD BO.MJS COXSIDERED It is not pretended that the bonds sold prior to Consolidation can be made a charge on tho property of a munici pality that did not authorise their is suance, and, therefore, each of the mu nicipalities consolidating will alone be liable for the bonds it has author ized and sold. As to bonds authorized by a municipality, but not sold at the time of consolidation, it is claimed that when they are sold they will be a lia bility of the new city and county, and that all Of the property in It will be assessed ratably to pay them. A mo ment's consideration will show the fal lacy of this claim. A bond that is not sold is not a liability any more than a check which a man writes out and leaves in his checkbook is a liability. When the bond is sold in the one case, and the check is delivered in the other, the liability is created. Inasmuch as the amendment dis tinctly provides, "Such new consoli dated government shall be liable for all the existing debts and liabilities in any municipal corporation merged therein," it follows that bonds unsold at the time of consolidation are not existing debts or liabilities of the municipality authorizing them, and are, therefore, not assumed by tho new consolidated city and county. PEOPLE TO VOTE ON CHARTER It has been suggested that such bonds would either be nullified by the con solidation or would be continued and sold thereafter. This is undoubtedly true, but it does not follow that If sold thereafter they would then be a charge on all the property of the new city and county. These unsold bonds at the time of consolidation will have to be provided for in the charter, and the sensible view to take of them is that if the benefit which will be derived from the use to which they were to be devoted will not be shared by any other part of the city and county than that which originally authorized them, they should be paid exclusively by taxes levied on the property of the community which did authorize them. If, however, it should appear that the use to which they were to be devoted Is one that will benefit the entire city and county, then it should be provided that all of the property of the city and county be taxed to pay them. It must be remembered that merely inserting provisions in the charter ad justing the status of unsold bonds will not make them a liability unless the charter is adopted. • • • ASSESSED VALUATIONS In view of the gross misrepresenta tion as to the extent and character of San Francisco's indebtedness. I propose to devote some space to it. In the statements which follow I use the state controller's, report, issued the first of this year. He says at page 10 that at the time of the issuance of the report only $18,301,069.85 of bonds had been sold and were outstanding and a charge against tax payers; $53,000,000 of bonds have been authorized, but not sold, and of these $45,000,000 are for the Hetch Hetchy water supply. San Francisco's assessed valuation was $545,064,347. Her outstanding bonded indebtedness, therefore, is only 3.37 per cent. Oakland's outstanding bonds at the same time were $4 907,350, and as her assessed valuation was $129,220,575. her outstanding indebted ness amounts to 3.79 per cent, or nearly one-half of one per cent more than that of San Francisco. * } * I'OMPARISON OF LIABILITY In this connection it will not be in- Kpriate to call attention to the fact assessed valuation of all the 4 n the metropolitan area ex clusive * San Francisco, Is only two fifths of he assessed value of the prop erty in San Francisco. A single office building in San Francisco pays as much taxes as are collected in some of the smaller municipalities, while, a few of San Francisco's downtown blocks pay as much taxes as does all the property in the city of Oakland. As any increase in the tax rate for the new city and county would Involve San Francisco in the payment of $5 for every %2 con tributed by all the other municipalities put together, it is not reasonable to suppose that, even if she had tho power, San Francisco would be inclined to bear so unequal a part of the Increased bur den, except for purposes that would benefit all the people. W. C. SHARPSTEIN. THE SAX FRANCISCO, CALL,. AVEDX ESP AY, .OCTOBER 16, 1912. " • -"■ — ! I Gibson Gives Objections To Annexation of Bay Cities BERKELEY. Oct. 15.—Women of the Twentieth Century club* gave up their session at Unity hall this afternoon to a discussion of the consolidation amendment, which will be an issue eof the November election. W. E. Gibson, president of the Oakland Chamber of Commerce, spoke against the measure, answering W. C. Sharpstein of the Greater San Francisco association, who opened the discussion with an exposi tion of the annexationists' attitude. SHARPSTERV'S AHGUMEXT Sharpstein's principal argument was in the nature of a .rejoinder to the assertion that by consolidation the east bay communities would be bridled with San Francisco's authorized bonded debt of $53,000,000. Sharpstein held that of this sum, $45,000,000 was for a Hetch Hetchy project, which should be classified as Income producing, and that therefore the great bulk of the bonds would not be a tax burden. He also said that in proportion to popu lation, San Francisco had the lowest tax rate, and that In a consolidated city and county government, the metropolis would pay taxes in the ratio of $5 to $2 as against the other bay communities. REPLY BY GIBSON Gibson attacked the borough system of government, reading from publi cists of New York. He said that in the consolidated plan involved in the amendment, San Francisco would have the preponderance of voting strength. "And this bill does not even guar antee us local autonomy." !ne said. "It provides that the charter framers may build a government giving elasticity to local affairs; but it does not say they shall do this." Then Gibson launched into the finan cial questions involved. He declared that San Francisco's bonded indebted ness already exceeded the constitu tional limit. He argued that the amendment 'was craftily drawn and de signed to enable San Francisco to bring up its assessed valuation to greater bonding proportions. "We believe," he said, "that we have brains enough and patriotism enough to build up our own cities without domination by the great voting strength of the city across the bay." TT C. STUDENTS v ♦ PROMISE HELP OAKLAND, Oct. 15.—The students of the University of California who en tered the annexation fight several days ago, held a meeting this evening at the headquarters of the Alameda County league and partially organized to assist in defeating the consolida tion amendment. The meeting was conducted by De Ver McLaren '03 and F. H- Bartlett '07 of the university alumni. They believ* that they will be able to lend valuable service to the league. A large number of the university men and women living in the zone which it is proposed to add to San Francisco's area have expressed them selves as decidedly against any plan for annexation. MEETING FOR WOMEN The home of Mrs. Isaac Requa, High land avenue and Hazel lane, Piedmont, will be the scene of an anti-annexa tion meeting of the women campaign ers Friday afternoon. Capable speak ers will discuss the question and a large attendance is expected.

Don't Be Fussy About Eating Tour Stomarh Will Digest Anj Kind of Food When Given the Proper Assistance We are prone to fall into the error of singling out some article of food and soundly berating the fiend who first in vented the dish. The habit grows with some people till almost all food is put on the blacklist. This Is all wrong. What Is required Is a little assistance with those agencies upon which scien tific students for many years have set the'r seal of approval because they have become absolute facts. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets for all stomach dis orders are recognized; they have a fine record; they are rated reliable, de pendable and worthy of confidence just as the president of a big bank puts his O. K. on a depositor's check. And so you can eat what you want, whatever you like, knowing well that should in digestion, sour risings, gas forma tions, fermentations or any other stom ach distress arise Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets in a few moments will put you right. Coated tongue, bad breath, heart burn, belching, flatulency, bloat—all the systems of digestive troubles dis appear quickly when these tablets are used. They are not a cure for any thing but dyspepsia and kindred com plaints. But they have brought re lief to more sufferers from digestive diseases than all the patent medicines and doctors' prescriptions put together. The stomach does the heaviest work of any 04 the bodily organs, yet It's the one we treat with the least regard. We eat too much of the wrong kind of food at any time. The patient stomach stands such treatment as long as it can and then it rebels. You get notice of the rebellion in the shape of the gases and pains caused by undigested, fermenting food. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold and recommended by all druggists at 50c a box. TAFT LABELED AS SANE PROGRESSIVE Secretary of State Knox Dis cusses Just Equilibrium Between "Rights" PORTLAND. Oct. 15. —Secretary of State Knox addressed an audience here tonight that thronged the county armory, taking: for his subject the just equilibrium between the rights of man and the rights of property. The secretary declared that since the dawn of civilization the rights of prop erty have been over emphasized, but he warned against radicalism In the process of readjustment. He impressed upftn his hearers the great progress toward accomplishing this equilibrium under the administration of President Taft. He expressed confidence that the people preferred quiet, courageous and effective deeds to strong words and urged that the republicansNheal fac tional differences and present an un broken front to their antagonists. Secretary Knox said: "No honest man differs from another as* to such moral Issues as honesty in public life, rebuke of bosslsm, equality of opportunity, repression of corporate aggression, control of Irresponsible and conscienceless wealth and corrupt alli ances between business and politics. There ta no\doubt that men's minds everywhere are becoming thoroughly awakened to the fact that for a thou sand years, indeed from the dawn of history to the foundation of this re public, the rights of property have been over emphasized in comparison with the rights of the individual man. We are rapidly changing all that throughout the world and nowhere more rapidly and radically than in this country. There are still many dark places and most countries in comparison with our own. still manifest the old undue predilections In favor of vested rights, about which men will divide so long as human temperaments display the two great types of the radical and the conservative mind. "But this past excess of tenderness toward property is no reason why we should suddenly and violently shift to tho opposite excess We have been steadily readjusting the center of grav ity since the beginning of this nation and have made great progress toward the just equilibrium. "Meanwhile and notwithstanding the impatience of some we continue to re ceive the blessings of providence with out stint. Farm mortgages are fast disappearing; land values are rising, crops are abundant and prices good."

Judge Coffey Should Be Elected By a Unanimous Vote To the People of San Franclsdo: Although all the candidates for Judi cial position are friends' of mine, yet I think a special word should be said by me about Honorable James V. Cof fey. His candidacy differs from all others. He reminds me of England's pride—the great Sir Thomas Moore in part, and of our learned Chancellor Kant in other respects'. In some juris dictions he would be the unanimous choice of all electors. As It is, his steady re-election as superior judge is one of the strongest arguments in favor of an elective Judiciary. Here is a man for whom the recall has no terrors. He has none of the elements which form a Jeffries or a Norbury. How often have a heard people say: "Well, Coffey may have his faults, but he Is dead square." This is to my mind the highest compliment for a Judicial officer to receive. For those like me who have lived all their lives In this community, it is not necessary to say or write in his favor for any place in the gift of the people. But for the new comers and new voters there is indeed a great necessity. Here Is a man who for years has maintained the highest rank as a judicial officer in this com munity. Yet to some voters he is not known as. he should be. But the liti gant who has a Just cause never trem bles, if his rights are to be passed upon by James V. Coffey. He Is one of the few who does not dread the "pull" or political pressure of the boss. No re ward should be too great for him. I hope before my life draws to a close to see him on the supreme bench of the United States. His ability, his honesty and his just decisions between man and man, and woman and w'ornan entitle him to that high position. I have yet to find with very few exceptions, a judge of such purity of mind and heart and with such ideas of high justice as Honorable James V. Coffey. The world knows that judges, like, all other men are not without faults. When we do have a judce who 5s *<als»lea«, it is our duty to uphold him and retain him on the bench. In this city I have known men of high position at the bar defend corrupt judges by saying: "We don't care if they are d—— raaeala. They are <mr d raaeala." I have read of the "judicial' arm" with a Aery good idea of what that term implies. I have wit nessed the political "pull" in full oper tion. I have seen judges elected in this city and state, because they belonged to cer tain cliques and association*, and not because they would do justice between the poor man and the rich man. What a difference do we see in the case of the candidacy of Hon. James V. Coffey. He begs his friends to simply stater that FRIENDS' EFFORTS HELP CANDIDATES Schlesinger's Race Boosted by Women at Meeting of Club Yesterday The candidacy of Bert Schleslnger for congress on the democratic ticket In the fourth district was given an Im petus at the meeting of the Women's Schlesinger club in the headquarters at 757 Market street yesterday afternoon.

GRAHAM SUPPORTERS MEET Supporters of Judge Graham met Sat urday night at the Chlsmore apartments and formed a Graham club. Hartwig A. Cohen was chosen president, Carlton Wall vice president and George J. Pa narlo secretary. The. following execu tive committee was appointed: Henry Whitley, Philip Fay. A. Oelberaon. George Jones. William A. Johnson, Robert C. MoGibben, Henry Videau, R. Sharpley, He.nry Johnson. A. O. Harwood. Sam Joa«ph. Stanley Fay, r>eo Pocfcwlti. C. H. Holbrook Jr., N. J. Prendergast. Reardon T. Lyooa. R.

President Cohen, who was the prin cipal speaker, said that the high char acter of Judge Graham's work on the bench and the esteem In which he was held in the community were evidenced by the remarkable vote he received at the primary election. After a general discussion as to the best method of assisting Judge Gra ham's candidacy, it was determined to confer with the numerous Graham club 3 throughout the city and arrange for a general rally at Golden Gate Comman dery hall Monday evening, October 28. COFFEY'S FRIEXDS ACTIVE The general committee of the James V. Coffey Campaign club, appointed by Joseph E. ODonnell. will meet tonight at 8 o'clock at Tamalpals hall. Native Sons* hall, in Mason street, between Geary and Post. The residents of the North Beach portion of the city showed their ap proval In no uncertain terms at the mass meeting held at Powell and Union streets Saturday evening in behalf of the re-election of Judge Coffey. A number of representative citizens ef that locality officiated as vice presi dents and insisted upon being enrolled as active members of the Central club, recently organized In furtherance of his return to the superior court bench. Natalie Ferrogiaro presided at the gathering and Thomas G. Rallly acted as secretary. Patrick Conner was elected vice chairman and Mario Forno chairman of the executive committee of 18 members. WOMEN'S RELEASE ORDERED- The «uprem<i <?ourt of the United State* ordered the release TPgterdar of Marie Savart. Marie Cardonnell. Iyena Ihipuis and Helene Marlo.ua. who were helnar held h.r tbe immigration authorities at Angpl island for deportation. The women ara accused of violating tne white alare act and had been denied bonds by the United States district court here. he Is a candidate. It Is a disgrace that such a statement for such a man does not suffice. But it does not. The ap peal is made by certain interested par ties to plump a vote for one candidate, and if the name of "Coffey" ia men tioned the voter is told that he will be elected anyway. This trick has de feated good men before. It will defeat good men again. It is a base subter fuge. T urge all Judge Coffey'a friends to expose this invention of the enemy. Let them point out his record in pri vate as well as public. His private life Is as spotless as that of Chief Justice Marshall. His public career as judge of the probate department of this city is the glory of the American judiciary. In all parts of the United States and in Europe, aye, even In the orient, one hears the name of Coffey coupled with tributes of the highest praise as the in corruptible judge, and as the friend of the poor and of the widow and orphan. Millions of dollars have passed under his control, and yet no eye has seen an attack on his' pure character, nor has the ear ever heard any derogatory re mark on the Justice of any of his de cisions. He is a man that Abraham Lincoln would have been delighted to appoint to a high position of trust, he cause he dares to do rlarht. I speak of Judge Coffey as I find him. He has decided cases against me, but he has decided for the right as he un derstood the right. In so deciding, I knew that the decision was not the result of a victory at draw poker or at any other game of chance. I knew it was an honest judgment, and I hon ored the judge for his action. Hence I would say to the citizens of this city: Men of San Francisco! Honor your selves by supporting the cause of such an honest man. Women of San Fran cisco: Remember the judge that stood by you and your little ones In the hour of peril; remember him who saved your little homestead from the sharks of the legal profession. Retain Hon. James V. Coffey by a complimentary vote to that position which he has held in good re port and evil report. In conclusion, I adopt In all its en tirety the sentiments of Mr. S. D. Woods in his "Lights and Shadows of Life on the Pacific Coast." "For twenty five years with distinguished ability and learning and a noble honor has Coffey presided over one of the de partments of the Superior Court of San Francisco. Recently celebraang his «3d birthday, he is still in his prime, and we want to go on record as say ing that when he retires from the bench, the community will suffer a loss nearly akin to a public calamity."
