VOLUME 114.—N0. 66. - OCEANSIDE WOMEN ACCUSE WHITE OF NEGLECT OF DUTY CHIEF CHARGED MCONNIIG IT RESORT EVIL Mrs. W. H. Campbell, as Well as Her Husband, Taunt Head of Police De partment With Allegation: That He Had Failed to Check,. White Slavers THEODORE ROCHE ROUNDLY SCORED Delegation From Beach j Waits Patiently While Policeman's Trial Drags— j Demand of President of l Commission That He Set-j tie the Dancing Question Chief of Police White last night, at an open session of the police commis sion, was flatly accused by W. H. Campbell and his wife, who is presi dent of the Oceanslde club, of dere liction of duty in failing to search the beach resorts for evidence of white slavery. Chief White retorted by grossly In sulting Mr. and Mrs. Campbell. 'Tt wouldn't do any harm to search your house," he retorted. President Theodore Roche -was vig orously accused by Mr. and Mrs. Camp bell and by other members of the dele gation of clubs who were present of purposely putting off action on the res olution to divorce dancing from places where liquor is sold in order to favor the liquor dealers and permit them to make more money during the Portola festival. Roche indignantly denied the charges, but refused to permit any action to be taken on the resolution. IS EIEtTTITE SESSION After Mrs. Campbell had made her accusations, the board went into executive session and remained in the inner room for an hour and a quarter. But it was impossible to freeze out the delegation of women. Two of them were the ones who, some weeks ago, refused to leave a beach car until it had taken them to their destination, compelling the superintendent to leave his warm bed and go to the power house to order the car in which they were sitting to carry them to the beach. "We'll stay here all night, if the commissioners are afraid to come out," they declared last night. And when it became apparent that that was just what they would do, the commissioners returned to the council chamber and the fireworks started again. r>O7.KV WOMEN PRESENT There were about a dozen women present, including Mrs. W. H. Camp bell, Mrs. Kate Cappler, Mrs. Orte Full more, Mrs. L. A. Huegel, Mrs. Jennie •Cusheon, Mrs. M. Hall, Mrs. J. Alber son and Miss Philalethe Michelson. The delegation was accompanied by Mr. W. H. Campbell. The trial of Officer Tracy, accused of accepting bribe money, had dragged along for more than an hour and it was nearing 11 o'clock, when Mrs, Campbell arose and asked President Roche if she might ask a question be fore it got too late. Hp stopped the trial and assented. "Is the matter of divorcing dancing from places where liquor is sold com ing up tonight?" she asked. "It's not going to be settled tonight, if that's what you mean," replied Roche. "WHEJfF ASKS MRS. CAMPBELL "When is It going to be settled:'' in quired Mrs. Campbell. "When we get around to it." replied President Roche. "Is it berause the ladies are hove that you will not take action now?' asked Mrs. Campbell, "or are you going to put it off until after Portola week to give the saloons a chance to make more money?" • "Go on with the trial," Roche com manded, coldly, turning away from his interlocutor. "All right; we know your attitude," said Mrs. Campbell, resuming her seat. After the trial of Policeman Tracy had been concluded and the board had remained in executive session an hour and a quarter on the pretext of passing on his fate, and had finally returned and found him guilty and dismissed him from the force, the woman returned to the attack. OBJECT TO PROCRASTINATION Mrs. Cappler addressed the board, stating that the women were present to protest against any further pro crastination on the subject of dancing in cafes and other places where liquor Is sold. Roche tried to pacify the delegation. Continued ©» Page 2» Column 1 THE San Francisco CALL "The People's Newspaper" * I Mrs. W. H.

ALLIES ABANDON THEIR x CLAIM FOR INDEMNITY Peace Conference Is Making Steady Progress, But Time Is Too Short BUCHAREST, Aug. 4.—The Balkan peace conference is making steady progress, but it was hardly possible that a preliminary peace treaty can be signed by the time the five days' armistice expires this week. Roumania, therefore, has proposed a three days' extension of the compact. It is reported the allies will aban don their demand for an indemnity from Bulgaria. The disposition of Kalava, in the vilayet of Saloniki on the Aegean sea, remains the thorniest problem with which the conference has to deal and which seems destined to produce an other war.

SAN FRANCISCO, TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1913. PRESIDENT TO IGNORE HUERTA; WILSON QUITS Resignation of Ambassador Accepted; John Lind to Be American Agent in Mexico FIRST STEPS IN DEFINITE POLICY Services of United States as Mediator Not to Be Of fered at Present WASHINGTON. Aug. 4. —President Wilson took the first steps today In the policy through which he proposes \o deal with the Mexican situation. He formally accepted the resignation of Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson to take effect on October 14, and sent to Mexico as his personal representative— but not accredited to the Huerta gov ernment —former Governor John Und of Minnesota, a lifelong friend of Sec retary Bryan. The understanding is that when a stable government 1s established ln Mexico, Mr. Lind will be named as amhaesador. President Wilson and Secretary Brvan had frequent conferences today. Ambassador Wilson had a long talk with Mr. Bryan, and Chairman Bacon of the senate forwign relations com mittee discussed the situation with the president at the White House. Except for the announcement of Mr. T.ind's mission, no explanation of the policy to bey pursued by the American government was forthcoming. It became known that a further an nouncement would be made by Presi dent Wilson in a few days, possibly on the arrival of Mr. T,ind In Mexico City. That Mr. Lind will be empowered to explain to all inquirers the unalterable opposition of the American govern ment to th° recognition of the Huerta administration if* expected to be a fac tor which may assist the situation. Prominent Mexicans' have taken it upon themselves to try to persuade General Huerta to retire in favor of another provisional executive, accept able to all factions. Meanwhile arms and munitions of war from the United States will con tinue to be denied to the twe warring forces, and unless it is apparent that internal efforts to bring about peace have failed the United States will not offer its services as a mediator. Mr. Lind undoubtedly will act in that ca pacity when the time comes. The ambassador's views and activ ities at Mexico City in the closing days of the Taft administration were de scribed officially as at variance with those held by President Wilson and Secretary Bryan and a reiteration came from high officials that the moral ity of the situation would not permit the recognition of Provisional President Huerta on account of the circumstances surrounding the death of Madero and Suarez. While officials of the administration here look with disfavor upon the processes of armed revolution to over throw constituted governments in Latin America, there is a distinct feeling of sympathy manifested toward the liberal movement in Central America, of which Madero's administration was the be ginning ln Mexico. Arguments, therefore, that it was necessary to have in Mexico the "iron hand" of Diaz, which might be ex pected of Huerta, failed to make an impression on government officials here, who believe that the Latin Amer ican governments can not thrive on the extremes of civil tyranny or military dictatorshfps. These ideas probably will be re flected in whatever pronouncements the president may make in the near fu ture and form the keystone of the ad ministration's policy toward the Latin republics. American Held for Ransom EL PASO, Texas, Aug. 4 —G. Duthe. American power plant engineer, of the lumber mills of the Madera ''nmpariy at Pearson, Chihuahua, is a prisoner of Maxime Castllle's gang of bandits, who are holding him for a ransom of $200 In their mountain camp, two miles from that town, according to a report received at the local offices of the Pearson syndicate late this after noon. 600 SHOVELERS CLEAR S. P. LINE OF LANDSLIDE Track* for Five Hundred Feet Covered With Debris Following; Cloud buret Below Reno (Special Dispatch to Tbe Call) RENO, New, Aug. 4.—Six hundred men and two steam shovels made rec ord time today clearing away what is •aid to hare been the worst* landslide in the history of the Southern Pacific system. It covered the main line for a dis tance of 500 feet at a point 18 miles below Reno and tied up half a dozen throurh trains for 10 to 18 hours. The landslide occurred during a cloud* urst EXPRESS RATES OVER COUNTRY HEAVILY CUT Reductions Which Will Cost Companies Fully $26,000, --000 Ordered by Inter state Commission REFORM PRESCRIBED AS TO PRACTICES For One Class of Packages New Tariff Is Lower Than Parcel Post WASHINGTON, Aug. 4.—Reductions in express rates which will cost the companies fully |28,00»,000 a year, ap proximately 16 per cent of their gross revenue, were ordered by the Inter state commerce commlsion today to become effective on or before October 15, 1913. Notable reforms In practices also were ordered. The most important change pre scribed by the order is by way ef modification of the present graduated scale of parcel rates. One hundred pound rates for short distances either have been left un changed or slightly reduced; for longer distances they have been low ered; for BO pounds or less all rates have been reduced. For packages more than 4 pounds going more than 200 miles and less than 2.000 the new express rates are generally lower than the parcel post rates; for more than 3,000 miles the rates are practically the same. The report and order of the commis sion prepared by Commissioner John Marble are a virtual affirmation of the findings of former Commissioner Frank lin K. Lane, now secretary of the In terior. By prescribing a so called block system, dividing the United States Into 960 blocks, averaging 2,500 square miles, as originally prooosed by Mr. Lane. 900,000,000 different rates now published by the rxr-ress companies will be reduced to less tX'an 0.'t0.000 and the interstate commerce commis sion believes that the system points the way to a solution of the existing problem of freight rates. The express companies had filed statements indicating that the loss of revenue under the proposed rates would be intolerable and argued strenuously that the establishment of the parcel post had deprived them of 30 per cent of the revenue they formerly received from parcels of 11 pounds or less. They contended that the exnress business could not survive the losses from both sources. "This is equivalent to saying." com ments Commissioner Marble in «his re port, "that inasmuch as shippers have been given the convenience and econ omy of the parcel post, the express car riers must, on that account, be allowed to charge higher rates than otherwise would be reasonable. That Is to say, the commission is called on to take from the shippers of the country all the benefit they receive from the par cel post and give It to the express com panies in the form of higher rates on the remaining business."

H.. Aug:. 4.—Great Brit ain's decision not to participate in the Panama-Pacific exposition was dis cussed by the British ambassador, Sir Cecil Springr-Rice, and his weekend guest, Dudley Field Malone, third as sistant secretary of state, at the Brit ish summer embassy here. Regarding; his conference with the ambassador, Mr. Malone said today: "My work in the state department is concerned with the Panama-Pacific ex position. You may draw your own conclusions. lam here just as a week end guest*. I think it. is not more un usual for an Irishman to visit a Brit ish ambassador than it is for a British ambassador to choose Dublin for his residence." It is understood that an effort will be made to influence the British board of trade to reconsider its decision, which is said to have been based on a feeling that probable benefits to be de rived from the exposition did not war rant the expense of taking part in it. In some quarters it is thought that the clause which would exempt Amer ican coastwise shipping from Panama canal tolls proposed for foreign ves sels, had something* to do with the disinclination of England to be repre sented at San Francisco. It is understood that Mr. Malone also will visit the summer embassies at Newport of Russia and Germany on a similar errand.

Aug. 4 — With »lx companies of militia camped in tha school grounds and the hop pickers' en campment on the Durst brothers' ranch reduced to a few hundred persons, there was little indication here tonight of the rioting which brought death yesterday to four men. among them District Attorney E. T. Manwell. Every train today carried out a full load of hop pickers from the force of more than 2,000 which yesterday occu pied the huddle of tents, sacking shel ters and even brush leantos which formed the havesters' camp. Every hour saw the number dwindle as the workers were paid off and departed by train, wagon or afoot. Only 50 pickers appeared for work this afternoon and the ranch owner* and Adjutant General Forbes, personal representative of Governor Johnson, on the scene, were not inclined to an ticipate further trouble. RUMORS OF f. W.

The Oroville and Chfeo companies, arriving soon after daylight, were the first to appear and marched at once> to the center of the pickers' camp. Not a hoot greeted them and officers of the command said there was no in dication of ill feeling exhibited at any time. The soldiers, were called on only once today. That was just before noon when Chief of Police McCoy of Marysville. in charge of the peace officers at the camp, located William Beck, a youth ful Mexican, against whom McCoy had evidence tending to connect him with last night's shooting. McCoy appealed to General Forbes to guard the camp and prevent any man from leaving it until Beck had been arrested. CORDOX AROUND CAMP The cordon was thrown about the camp in a few minutes. Three auto mobiles loaded with guardsmen dashed through the crooked camp street and the men sprang out to form a skirmish line to the north and east. Another line dashed to the other side and before they knew what was happening those in camp were hemmed in by a line of loaded rifles. There was no disturbance. Beck made no resistance. Later he and six other prisoners were taken to Marysville for safe keeping. Manwell Selfmade Man District Attorney E. T.
