pets the men who are responsible for
the alleged crookedness in getting
the two important acts submitted un
der the referendum.
Barron was not taken until detec
tives had surrounded his house for |
nearly two hours. Occupants of his
apartment gave the information that
he was not in, but after waiting for
two hours the detectives obtained in
formation that Barron was in the J
house hiding. One of the detectives
started to break in the door, and Bar
ron attempted to escape through a
rear window. He was taken Into cus
tody as soon as he reached the ground.
The greatest secrecy has marked
the investigation of the district attor
ney's assistants in the case. A pri
vate office located far from the hall
of justice was used as headquarters.
Those on the inside of the Investi
gation declare that the forgeries were
made In the headquarters of the op
ponents of the red light abatement
act. They maintained quarters in the
Bank of Italy building and the Phe
lan building.
MANY FALSE SIGNATURES
It has been alleged that the petition,
which contained 10,000 signatures
more than the 20,000 necessary to
carry it, had at least 6,000 forged
names upon it. It is said that these
were placed on the petition at the in
stigation of men who had been em
ployed by the redlight district and
gave a large fund to defeat the bill.
Men who were employed In the cir
culation of the petition are said to
have Informed the district attorney's
office of the fraud. After months of
exhaustive Investigation, It is said,
these men finally weakened and con
fessed, involving in their sworn state
ments the names of men who are
prominent In this city.
For some time these petitions have
been under examination by hand
writing experts. A special detail of
detectives has been employed to check
up on the signers of the petition.
Among the names that are said to
have been forbed is that of Fred L.
Hilmer, the supervisor.

WILL SET GO-TO
CHURCH DAY
TODAY
Committees From All Denom
inations Meet This After
noon to Start Campaign
To make final arrangements and to
name a day to be known as "Go to
church day" the seven committees
from the various ecclesiastical de
nominations of the city will meet In
the Y. M. C. A. at 2 o'clock this after
noon.
The complete committees are as
follows:
Presbyterian—Rev. W. K. Howe,
chairman; C. S. Canner and J. M. Mc-
Elhlnner.
Baptist—Rev. J. A. Sutherland.
Congregationalists—Rev. George, A.
Charnock.

TO START CAMPAIGN
Beginning today the campaign for a
"Go to church day" In San Francisco,
as proposed by The Call, will be ac
tively inaugurated with the indorse
ment of the entire clergy of the city.
The idea of a "Go to church day" is
not new. It has been tried in other
cities with noteworthy success. In
Joliet, Denver and Los Angeles the
results achieved by such a movement
proved decidedly gratifying to its
sponsors and It is believed that a
similar result may be obtained in San
Francisco.
SPECIAL SERMONS
As soon as the day has been named,
which will be the principal object of
today's meeting, the committees will
proceed with the work in hand. Spe
cial sermons will be arranged by the
'pastors of the various churches —ser-
mons intended to appeal to all classes
Those who are not regular church
goers will be urged to attend some
house of worship on "Go to church
day."
The slogan will be "Everybody go
to church." Not necessarily any par
ticular church, but the one of indi
vidual choice.
Part of the campaign will be in
tention on the part of all the pastors
to make everybody feel perfectly
welcome.
The members of the "Go to church
day" committees are enthusiastic
over The Call's idea and have pledged
their unflagging support.
