Judge Lovett Denies Rumor
That His Company Is Seek
ing Control of Railroad
"We have no interest in the Central
Pacific railroad, nor have we made
plans to purchase it.
"It is true .that the Union Pacific
railroad has a great surplus, derived
from the sale of Southern Pacific
stock, but it will not be devoted to
buying out Central Pacific. We can
place it elsewhere.
"We have friendly traffic relations
with both these great transportation
companies, but if the government de
sires to force the segregation of Cen
tral Pacific and Southern Pacific it is
of absolutely no concern to us."
So. said Judge Robert S. Lovett,
chairman of the - executive board of
the Union Pacific- railroad, this morn
ing in denying rumors that his com
pany was seeking a way to purchase
the Central Pacific in case the govern
ment divorced it from its parent, the
Southern Pacific.
Judge Lovett. who arrived in San
Francisco with a party of prominent
railroad men last night, also made it
plain that he was not here to hold con
ferences with Julius Kruttschnitt or
President William Sproule of the
Southern Pacific, but that his visit was
merely "to get a first hand view of
the railroad situation in California."
Julius Kruttschnitt, chairman of
the executive board of the Southern
Pacific company, returned this morn
ing from a four days' junket through
Oregon. He was accompanied by
President William Sproule. Mr.
Kruttschnitt said that by the first of
the year about 75 miles of the elec
trized Portland, Eugene and Eastern
railroad would be in operation.
A campaign to enlist the business
men of San Francisco in a project,

Attorney Files Answer Declar
ing Accusation of False Rep
resentation Unfounded
Attorney Milton A. Nathan, accused
of intentional fraud, today filed an
answer in the superior court denying
the allegation of J. J. Raver that
Nathan, together with A. R. Eichler,
W. W. White and the White Construc
tion company, falsely represented to
Raver that the Thompson-Starrett
company owed the White company
$400, and thereby caused Raver to ad
vance $350 to the White company in
return for an assignment of claim.
Recently Nathan demurred to the
complaint charging him with deceit,
but Judge Troutt overruled the de
murrer and held Nathan to answer.
The Hayes Valley Improvement as
sociation will hold its regular month
ly meeting this evening at the Russ
house, 520 Hayes street.
Is no romance, that men nowadays
devote their energies to making
money. She says this view Is being
shared by Miss Whitney since their
tour of the United States.
"Maybe somewhere in this world we
shall find romance, the kind that
makes men do heroic and daring deeds
for the love of a woman, but there's
no such thing In the United States,"
said Miss Martelle. "We have been
three months going over the continent
and our next jump will be Panama
and South America, where we hope to
find the heart and soul superior to
the instincts for getting money."

Jews and Gentiles Discuss
Ritual Murder Persecution
at Kiev, Russia
Jews and Gentiles met last evening
at a banquet held Tn the Commercial
club to discuss the subject, "What
next for the world?" A number of
members of the Congregation Emanu-
El and the First Congregational
church were present and the speakers
were Rabbi Martin A. Meyer, Rev. C.
F. Aked, Otto L Wise and Ralph C.
Goodwin, secretary of the Y. M. C. A.
The occasion was the night follow
ing a mass meeting of the people of
all creeds against the ritual murder
persecution in Kiev, Russia Doctor
Meyer said that if doctrines of the
personality of God and Christ had
kept Jews and Gentiles apart the
problems of the present day would
bring them together.
Rabbi Meyer further declared for
an enthusiasm for liberalism, saying
reactionary elements' In religion and
politics were too strong. Doctor
Aked said that next on the world's
program was the recognition of the
equality of men and women.
ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 28.—The
end of the long drawn out trial of
Mendel Beilis for the so called "ritual
murder" of the young Russian boy is
now in sight and only the testimony
of expert witnesses remains to be
heard. Many of the army witnesses
under subpena have benn eliminated
as being unimportant. This has facil
itated matters considerably.
Chief among the experts to be ex
amined is Justin Elisejevltch Prani
tis, who Is described as a master of
theology of the Roman Catholic dio
cese of Turkestan province. This
man is an anti-Jewish fanatic who
has devoted an immense amount of
study to the question of "blood sac
rifice." It is-said that he has proved
to his own satisfaction that the Jews
do use the blood of Christians in
their religious rites. He has written
a report on what he calls the Jewish
blood ritual, which has been pub
lished in pamphlet form.
Pranitls claims to base his argu
ments on the Talmud and writings of
learned Jews, from which he has
drawn his deductions.
Biller, Rich Builder,
Wooed Stepdaughter,
Charges Wife in Suit
Mate, Asking Divorce, Asserts Con
tractor Made Love to Her
Own Child
A love for the daughter of his wife
by a former marriage is the cause
for the filing of a complaint for di
vorce in the superior court today by
Sophia Lt. Biller, against John Biller,
wealthy contractor, 460 Montgomery
street, living at 2430 Folsom street.
That Biller made love to his step
daughter in the absence of his wife
is one of the allegations in Mrs. Bll
ler's complaint, and that the daughter
complained to her mother, is also set
forth in the wife's petition for a di
vorce with J250 a month alimony,
$1,000 counsel fees for Attorney
Frank McGowan. and a community
share of $60,000 worth of real estate
in San Francisco, a vineyard at
Reedly and $20,000 in bank.
The Billerg were married in San
Francisco, June 20, 1891, and the sep
aration took place September 20, this
year. Mrs. Biller charges that her
husband told her daughter that Mrs.
Biller had been unfaithful to him,
and that he told his sister, Mary Bil
ler, that he did not love his wife.
The attack on the daughter is set
forth as occurring in October, 1911.

Ideas of Women
Rapid, Accurate
PITTSBURG, Pa., Oct. 28.
Women form their opin
ions and judgments just as
rapidly and accurately as men,
and once they have an opinion
they stick to it and no amount
of discussion can change it.
So declared Prof. Hugo
Munsterberg to the students of
Carnegie Institute of Tech

Because kjpr husband, William
Farias, made charges that he could
not prove in a suit for divorce re

Ada Farias today filed in the superior
court an action for divorce on the
ground at cruelty. She says he false
