San Francisco Leaders Favor Peace Move
Call's Plea for Dove in Balkans Indorsed
Interests of America Demand
Strife Threatening All of
Europe Be Stopped
Mediation Likely to Be Accepted
and Slaughter of Human
Beings Would Cease
The policy that the United States
Shc-uld now step into the present Balkan
crisis and avert any possibility of a
general European war, as well as to
prevent further unnecessary bloodshed
between the allied states and Turkey,
has met with much support. The Call's
prompt advocacy of such, a course of
action has received many indorsements.
Among the statements made yesterday
LAN, secretary of tbe San Francisco
Labor council—"l believe it is right
to stop the needless slaughter of
thousands, and the United States
would be doing a big thing to step in
and bring about honorable peace.
The Call is wise in advocating such
a policy."
LEWIS F. HYINGTON. past prnnd presi
dent of the Native Sons of the Golden
West—• I agree with The Call that it
is time to mediate and take steps
which will advance the world's civil
ization instead of hindering it. War
destroys a productive population, and
in every case takes the sinews of a
CHARLES A. MIRDOCK, supervisor of
the city aud county of San Francisco
"I see no reason why this country
should not try to prevent further
bloodshed. We should not miss the
opportunity to further the cause of
world peare. which we first actively
advocated at the close of the Russo-
Japanese war. The Call is moving
along the right lines."
JAMES O. PHEl,t\. former mayor of
San Francisco—"The interest of the
I'nited States and of humanity is
peace. Friendly mediation by a power
having no territorial ambition might
be accepted. While our country at
first would feel a trade benefit by
war. a gen. '■al European conflict
would cause financial disturbance by
the necessity put upon Europe to
realize on American securities, now
held largely abroad."
MRS. I. LOWEXBERI,, president of the
Pacific Const Women's Pr«-M assocla
tion—"l approve heartily The Call's
stand ana its desire to further th«
cause of world peace by making the
peace movement effective."
MRS. J. S. *. MACOONALD. president
of the Draper cl-üb—"l am thoroughly
in favor of this movement for medi
ation, a move The Call is right
in advocating. Peace should be ad
vanced whenever possible."
MRS. HORACE K. WILSON, president
of the Century dub— lam glad to
know The Call is back of this move
ment, which is certainly a good idea.
The United States is the only nation
in the world which can step in and
mediate, and it would be right in
doing so."
ftOBERT C. ROOT, secretary of the
Northern and Southern California
Peace societies—"l believe the I'nited
States should offer to mediate in the
Balkan war. I believe that the
I'nited States should lead the world
in peace propaganda and in pre
venting the bloodshed and horror
of warfare. I am equally convinced
that Washington's advVce against
entangling alliances should be ob
served religiously, therefore I fay
the I'nited States .should offer to
mediate in the European crisis and
avoid any suspicion of intervention.
"For the United States to intervene
would be to arouse hostility on the
part of European nations. Rut an
offer of mediation may be made as
in the Japan-Russian war without
arousing diplomatic grudge?.
"In mediation even the United
States may be criticised, because r ,f
the action of the senate in amending
the arbitration treaties with France
and England. If those treaties had
been ratified as submitted by Pres
ident Taft and Secretary Knox, the
I'nited States would be in an im
pregnable position to offer media
ation now. Europe looks to the
I'nited States to lead in peace."

SINCE I wrote the five or six
column article for the New
York Times November 3,
events have marched w-ith great
rapidity, and Europe is passing
through a crisis that few on this
side of the Atlantic realize, as a
consequence of the outbreak of
hostilities between Bulgaria and
the central European states and
Turkey. Although lam glad to
see by the latest cables that
Austria is apparently adopting a
more reasonable and statesman
like attitude. However, the
for generations.
It was the greed of Austria in attempting to check the legitimate
imbitions of the Slavonic races by the unjust annexation of Bosnia and
Terzegovina that has brought the situation to the present acute crisis.
The powers of central Europ? seek—and. I venture to think, rightly so—
an outlet to the Adriatic for their commercial purposes.
Austria unjustly and greedily denies them these facilities. For its
own selfish ends Austria desires to force the whole of the central Euro
>ean powers' trade through its own ports and over its own lines of rail.
n this way Austria would be able to force its own wares and those of
ts ally. Germany, upon the .Balkan states, whereas, if Servia forces
connection with the sea. that country will be independent and able to
purchase every manufactured product from whom it pleases.
The Balkan states seem united in this determination, and they are
>eing actively backecl by Russia, who is mobilizing her forces, with the
sympathy of both England and France. Constantinople apparently is
not to be occupied by Russia, although one must not he too sanguine
on this point. But. assuming that this great danger has been averted,
there remains now the knotty question whether Austria will face all the
consequences of a great European war in order to thwart Servia's
These are momentous days, and the question of Ruropean peace or
war depends on what Austria and Germany will do, which, in turn,
means, dare they fight England, France and Russia, with the assistance
of the Balkan states? Tt is of no use shutting one's eyes to the fact that
it is a question of policy. Indeed, in all cases of personal national in
terest, the human element is ignored and, if I may venture to prophesy,
it wi!l he to the effect that Hie triple alliance of Austria, Germany and
Italy will hesitate before taking this step, especially as it is doubtful that
Italy wili remain true to the alliance, as it is diametrically opposed to
its interest to see Austria grrnv too strong on the Adriatic immediately
facing Italy's shores. ,
Perhaps the great question that the people of the United States will
ask is. Has not the moment arrived for this country to offer its services
to try to attempt to smooth over the present difficulty? This great
question one must answer: Firstly, Can the United States be of service
at the present juncture?
The United States can not afford to receive a rebuff from all the
European states, and this country can only inquire as to whether her
services, being entirely disinterested, would be welcomed by the states
now in dispute.
Secondly, Tf, assuming that the good offices of the United States
might be useful at the present moment, then the second question that
arises is. Who is there in this country among Mr. Taft's able adminis
trators capable of undertaking the task?
It is, indeed, a pertinent question, because whoever is to attempt
this herculean achievement must be versed in European politics; in
fact, he must be steeped in all the details that surround this interesting
question, that has baffled the efforts of European statesmen for the last
50 years.
I don't say the task is impossible, but to attempt it without neces
sary knowledge might do infinitely more harm than good.

opens tomorrow at 9 o'clock with the
seating of the delegates. It is not
customary to have a committee on
credentials, but many of the delegates
around and below the bay district* will
insist on the selection of such a com
mittee and the seating of delegates in
a manner similar to a political con

Many Los Angeles and San
Francisco Witnesses Sum
moned to Indianapolis
INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 12.—Thirty
witnesses from the Pacific coast, it wat
announced today, have been subpenaed
to testify at the "dynamite conspiracy"
trial concerning explosions in western
These include officials who assisted in
the dynamite cases in Los Angeles and
men in San Francisco, Seattle and Port
land who, the government says, will be
called to testify concerning the move
ments of "James B. McNamara, Ortie E.
McManigal, Eugene A. Clancy. Olaf A.
Tveitmoe and other labor leaders.
More than 20 of the Pacific coast wit
nesses have arrived or are on their
way to Indianapolis.
Among witnesses subpenaed from
Salt Lake City, where two explosions
occurred on a hotel building built by
nonunion men are J. J. Roberts, a police
captain, and Carl A. Carlson, a former
patrolman. They are to be questioned
concerning incidents alleged to have
occurred when guards were kept about
the work. McManigal in his testimony
said James B. McNamara had confessed
to blowing up the hotel April 18, 1910,
and to having obtained assistance from
J. E. Munsey, a local business agent.
After an hour's session the trial to
day was postponed until tomorrow on
account of the illness of Allen Spaul
ding, a juror. Spaulding was suffering
from dizziness due to a severe cold.
In relating his preparations to blow
up Jobs in Kansas City and Peoria,
McManigal testified about going to
Rochester, Pa., where he found a hid
ing place had been Invaded by un
known persons and two quarts of
nitroglycerin taken. He said he re
ported the loss to J. J. McNamara, who
appeared greatly worried.
According to J. A. G. Badorf's testi
mony, Herbert S. Hockin, now on trial,
arranged the Rochester hiding place,
but in August, 1910, in "double cross
ing" the union he had "tipped it off" to
a superintendent of a steel firm In
Pittsburg, who, six weeks before tha
Los Anjreles Times explosion, dug up
and destroyed the nitroglycerin.
McManlgal told today how, with 12
quarts of nitroglycerin, he arrived in
Kansas City, Mo., to blow up a bridge
across the Missouri river there in
August, 1910.
He testified he had gone as a paid
accomplice of John J. McNamara, who
in Indianapolis had instructed him to
cause three explosions on a bridge be
ing built by nonunion workmen. The
explosion took place about 8:30 p. m.
August 23.
At Kansas City, McManlgal said he
left his nitroglycerin successively at
the railroad station, a boarding house
and at a hotel.
"I had one 10 quart can and one two
quart can," said McManigal.
'To divide it into three bombs I
went to a paintshop and got three four
quart varnish cans, distributing the
explosives in the new cans. With alarm
clock attachments I took the stuff out
and buried it in a swamp near the
bridge. While working in the swamp
I thought I saW some one coming, so
I hurriedly hid the bombs In the weeds.
On returning I could find only two of
"I set the bombs to explode that
night and went back to town. The ex
plosion failed to come off, the batter
ies being too weak, and I replaced
them the next day.
"From Kansas City I went to Peoria,
111., where I was to do a job. I got in
touch with Edward Smythe, the Iron
workers' business agent. Smythe took
me through a cdVnfleld and pointed out
the plant of the Lucas Bridge and
Iron company, saying, 'That's the job
to be blown up." "
McManigal said he caused the Peoria
explosion September 14. It damaged
several adjacent buildings.

Pontiff Is Deeply Affected
Prays for Safety of Spain
Cardinal Merry del Val
Imparts News to
His Holiness
ROME, Nov. 12.—The assassination
of Premier Canalejas of Spain produced
the deepest impression here, especially
at the Vatican, where the remembrance
is still vivid of his energetic struggle
against the religious orders.
Cardinal Merry del Val received news
of the crime early in the afternoon in
a cipher telegram from Madrid. He
went immediately to the pope and
communicated the news to him, using
great precaution not to shock him. The
pope was deeply affected and expressed
his horror nt the crime, exclaiming:
"This comes from stamping out re
ligion in the most Catholic country."
His holiness then knelt and remained
absorbed in prayer for the safety of
The impression produced on Cardinal
Merry del Val was profound, as he him
self is a Spaniard and together with
Cardinal Vises y Tuto possesses the
most powerful influence with the pope
and gives the present pontificate a
somewhat Spanish atmosphere.
Continued From Page 1
people paid no attention to it, believ
ing that it was merely the explosion
of an automobile tire or the discharge
of a firecracker. The second shot and
the whistles of the civic guards threw
the crowd into a panic.
Someone called out, "They have killed
the king."
The two guards had carried the
stricken minister into the building,
where Canalejas was at once recog
nized. The news was known generally
within a few minutes. The crowd was
furious. In the excitement the assas
sin almost escaped. The guards at the
ministry entrance had given their first
attention to the victim, seeing a com
rade pursuing the man with still smok
ing pistol. The latter dropped his
weapon as he ran and tried to mix in
the crowd. He was seized by an offi
cer, who held him until the patrol ar
rived with bayonets fixed and cartridge
clips in their rifles, ready for riot.
Assassin Rushed to Prison
The assassin was rushed to the near
est prison under a strong guard. The
anger of the people was now such that
he would unquestionably have been
hanged at the first lamp post if they
could only have got hold of him. At
the prison he gave his name as Man
uel Pardinas Serrato y Martin, 28
years old, a native of El Grado, in the
province of Huesca. He admitted his
crime, asking: "Did I kill him?"
"You did: what have you to say?"
retorted the commandante of the
"I am glad." replied Serrato. "ft
was what I Intended to do, and I sel
dom make mistakes."
This reply led the officials to be
lieve that Serrato had already com
mitted other desperate crimes. That
he was a dead shot was proved by the
second bullet, fired as the premier was
staggering, even then mortally
wounded at least, or, as the surgeons
believe, dead —killed instantly by the
first shot.
Serrato now proved his cunningness
and his skill with the pistol a second
time. While he was being removed to
the cabinet where prisoners are
searched he drew a second pistol from
his coat pocket, and before the guard
at his side could stop him he blew a
hole through the middle of his fore
Meanwhile the most eminent surgeons
in the capital had been summoned to
Canalejas and King Alfonso notified.
The surgeons pronounced death as cer
tainly instantaneous. The colleagues
of the premier were speedily within
the reception chamber, where the body
has been borne. They were already
there, having come to the office of the
interior to attend a meeting of the
As the much discussed "padlock law"
further regulating church and convent
discipline, was to be considered at this
meeting, it was at first feared that Cana
lejas was the victim of an ultra clerical
fanatic. The late premier of Spain has
been lampooned and assailed most un
sparingly in the extreme Catholic jour
nals of Spain. He was regarded by the
Vatican as a foe even more deadly than
the French statesman, M. Combes, the
author of the French "associations"
law. Both drove thousands of priests
and nuns to seek shelter in the United
States and England and in missionary
work in Asia and South America. They
are still leaving Spain and France
wherever they can obtain admission by
friendly, sympathetic bishops.
The belief that Canalejas was thus
put out of the way by the clericals, or
Carlists, infuriated the extreme lib
erals and republicans. Canalejas, al
though then but a strippllng, was a
pro-secretary to the president during
the brief republic of Spain. He was
admired greatly by the queen, who Is at
heart an ardent liberal, but King Al
fonso feared him more than he loved
him. Only the common people loved
Canalejas, and it is almost impossible
to describe how much they idolized
him. He was fearless, hla probity was
such that none questioned it; he stood
between the dynasty and revolution
when the republican wave was swelling
from France and from Portugal, be

ready for full popular sovereignty." j
He stood between the reactionary
grandos and the cortes, between the
cortes' wasteful exactions and the tax
payers of the kingdom. He was laying
the foundations for a new progressive
Spain, which would be the peer of the
most powerful European power.
When the rumor spread that this
great man was felled by the bullet of
a bigot, a moan of rage arose in the
Puerto del Sol (Gate of the Sun) and
it swelled into a roar. General Moras
ordered out the reserves to pacify the
people and keep the Inflamed factions'
apart. The archbishop and bishops
were appealed to. Instant steps were
taken to convince all that the shoot
ing was due to the mad act of an
anarchist, who longed to emulate the
shooting of Theodore Roosevelt re
cently, but not to fail, as Schrank
failed. These appeals and bulletins
had their effect. The siiicide of the
assassin also helped to allay the pop
ular ferment. A few hours later among
the messages of condolence sent to
the king and the cabinet, was one
from Cardinal Vico, papal nuncio,
couched in conciliatory terms worthy
of the distinguished prelate.
The late Senor Canalejas will be giv
en an imposing state funeral with the
queen of Spain as chief mourner.* His
death precipitated a political disorder.
The liberal ministry is without its one
pilot. Technically, his party was
known as the democratic monarchists.
He was in politics 35 years. He bought
and edited El Heraldo, the most power
ful newspaper in Spain, in the zenith
of his career. He was the first radical
to rule at the side of the king, but he
was a conservative radical. In 1900
from a back seat in the cortes, Ca
nalejas thundered, "We must wage
eternal war against clericalism." He
leaped at once to the front. Within
the last few months he fought the
labor unions as no man in Europe ever
fought them. With the soldiers and
sailors of the kingdom he suppressed
the railroad strike. He even quelled
the turbulent Riffs in Africa.
"Loss Almost Irreparable"
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 12.—Don Juan
Biano y Gayangos, the Spanish minis
ter to the United States, learned of
the assassination of Premier Canalejas
late this afternoon at Haverford, where
he went to attend the funeral of Cle
ment A. Griscom of the International
Mercantile Marine company.
Senor Biano said:
"I can hardly realize it. Spain has
lost the strongest man in the country.
The loss is almost irreparable. He
was a man of high ideals and one of
the most capable in Spain. He had
enacted many reforms, especially in
educational matters and he obtained
many liberties for the mass of the
people. I do not know of any man who
can fill his place. He was democratic
in all his actions."
