SUPERVISORS IN WAR ON SPEEDERS City Officials Present United Tront Against Lawless Chauffeurs < ontlnued From I'aae 1 nois. was fined $20 by Judge Sullivan fdr running; his motorcycle at 26 miles Ml V.ur in Market street. He said he eld not know San Francisco's speed Within tlie week three San Fran ciscans have been ground under fly- U.r wheels and left without aid. One victim, J.

Two men face felony charges as a Jesuit of the automobile accidents. t/ouis Kantor, chauffeur, is held as •he man who was driving tlie'car that killed McDermott. Isadore C. Caselli, accused of run ning down little Carmela Sarra, was .v reigned before Police J"»idge Crist today on a charge of running down a person and driving on. The case was • out.lined one week as tlie child in still In hospital. a »i im;h\ISOHV «>PIMO.\« Here are the opinions expressed to day by some of the supervisors: -iijiei fi«.ir Paul Bancroft I am in W of drastic measures being lajJten to curb the growing evil of speeders running down innocent people. The severest penalty of the law should be given convicted vio intors who hit people with auto mobiles and refuse to slop and ren der assistance. in the downtown district the regulations are pretty well perfected, but it is the out lying portion of the city where the I'-ople are continually endangered. It Is usually the Joy riders who in jure and kill people. Something ;:m*t be. done to stop this s|>eed craze and criminal carelessness. Supervisor Thomas Jennings—The Rutomobillst who runs down a per son and drives away should be (sewn no mercy. I think We all agree on that. It would do little good to put more legislation on the looks It is difficult to stop the speeder bjr laws. He should be given the severest punishment, which is bound to have a certain etTe' t toward making others more careful. As to. the general run of «utomohilists who drive their cars in the pursuit of business. I con sider them cautious. It is due to careful driving that 1H people are not killed daily. The pedestrian takes chances. Men and women run for streetcars without looking where they are going. They often dart across the streets at the worst places and under the worst conditions. As to the plan of com pelling pedestrians to cross the street only at corners, it would be *of great benefit could it be en forced, but I am afraid that it could not. For Instance, in Market street the intersections with other streets are at such odd angles and a person is often bound to cross in the middle of the block. Drastic dealing with the speeders by the courts appears to be the only solu "»nper» tanr J. Fmiiietl Harden — The only solution to my mind is to make an example of the speed er by giving him the maximum penalty under the law. I would oppose the traflV squad sugges tion that each driver be forced to carry a photograpii and a < ard which would be punched for each arrest. This law would make all auto owners feel as If they were members of the rogues' gallery. Underground paaageways across the busiest street intersections would give the pedestrian more safety, but this, of course, could not lie done at once. Oive the speeder a stiff sentence. That is the best cure for immediate re sults. Super* iaor \oian—There is too much influence being used in behalf of the auto speeders when arrested. Their prominent friends rush to their aid, and. as a rule, they get oft" with a light fine. This should be stopped. I favor imposing a Jail sentence in every case. As an instance of the effect of this, all will remember how Jack Johnsan, the pugilist, was brought to a halt in his wild driv ing by a jail sentence. 1 do not favor the plan of having eacli auto driver carry a card of identification and a photograpii, the card to be punched each time he is arrested. A better method would be to punch the driver and put him in jail.

L. A. BANK MOVE AMUSING TO S. F. Financiers Doubt Report That South Will Get Regional Institution San Francisco bankers were both dumbfounded and amused when shown a Washington dispatch this morning to the effect that Los An geles and not San Francisco would be selected as the location of a re gional reserve bank under the new currency act. "Absurd." was the spontaneous com ment made la each case, but when they read that Secretary McAdoo was declared to be strongly inclined toward Los Angeles and that under his plan San Francisco would simply be included like Fresno or Bakers field in tlie Los Angeles district they unanimously decided thst it was time to set McAdoo right as to the facts in the case i.o<H( \i. i.«m \tio\ 111: it 1: It was pointed out with emphasis that the geographical location and tlie financial, commercial and shipping supremacy of San Francisco made it pre-eminently the logical location of a federal reserve bank. J. J, Lynch, president of tlie San Francisco Clear ing House association, who attended a conference in Washington of clear ing house officers with Secretary Mc- Adoo three months ago, said that at that time it seemed to be generally understood that a regional bank would lie placed in San Francisro. even when only four such banks were in contem plation. MIOKIIXi IS I.IKEIY "Of course, we do not know the plans of Mr. McAdoo here." said Mr. Lynch, "but 1 think that if tiie facta are properly presented there will be no question as to the selection of San Francisco." Asked if lie would call a meeting of the Clearing House association to pre sent the claims Of San Francisco to the secretary, Mr. Lynch intimated that some such step might be taken. "San Francisco has nothing to fear if the facts are carefully looked into." said F. U. Llpman, vice president of Wells Fargo Nevada National hank. "Our banking power it materially greater than that of any other coast or western city, anrr twice as great as that of Los Ange?es. Our clear ings exceed those of Los Angeles, Seattle. Portland and Spokane com bined." "San Francisco If tlie recognized financial, commercial and shipping capital of the Pacific coast." said Her bert Fleishhacker. president Anglo and London Pari!

Her characterization of the American ambassador to Great Britain as * "sychophant. a "Benedict Arnold,'' "traitor" and tlie "smudged page" appear to Mrs. B. S. Wllkins, regent and leading member of tlie Daughters of the American Revolu tion, as "unjustifiable," while Mis. Philip Bancroft. officer of v, tfc Women's Roosevelt league and promf? inent in suffrage work, finds it diffi cult to take Lillian Scott-Troy's re marks seriously enough to give an opinion on them." SKNDS < \ I STIC CAULK The caustic cablegram and etter of the same date were sent to Presi dent Wilson by Lillian Scott-Troy on December 5, the day following the Peace Centenary dinner in London, at which Ambassador Page was one of the principal speakers. The ambassa dor's remarks evidently Irritated the lady considerably, as is evidenced by the text of the cablegram: "Ambassador Page, at peace centen ary dinner in London last night not only flagrantly insulted non-English speaking nations but grossly insulted the American nation as well. He said. In America they lacked the expe rience of Englishmen in generous hos. pitality; they lacked the fine arts that Englishmen had in .many of the courtesies of life.' If you do not re call this sycophant immediately, the American people should recall you." In her letter the writer says of Page: "Like Benedict Arnold, he rushes into bitter and spiteful com ments on his own people order to receive the crumbs which fall from the social tables of Englishmen. • • • Can it be possible that when Ambassador Page so glibly told his snickering audience that "Ameri cans lacked the fine arts of English men in the ordinary courtesies of life, he had your excellency in mind? • * • This Page will long be re membered as the smudged Page." CRITICISES PRE" I PENT The letter is a lengthy one. abound ing In caustic comment not only on Ambassador Page, but on the presi dent himself. Mrs. S. B. Wilkins, regent and lead ing member of Daughters of the American Revolution, says of tlie let ter: "I have heard nothing of this, hut, from the text of the letter. I should consider Lillian Scott-Troy's remarks unjustifiable. I can hardly believe that the ambassador's remarks rould have been insulting to AmerleandV. Either she misunderstood him or was more to the speech which inadu it capable of a different Interpreta tion. All Americans should uphold their ambassador. I believe, unless h« does something particularly flagrant."
