. San Franclaco, 6pt 30. As the rs
sult of a clever political trick the sup
porters of the graft prosecutors are di
vided and a three-cornered fight for
ths. control of the city government is
. certainty. P. H. MoCarth'jr 1 the man
who brought this about. He led Daniel
Jk. Ryan lo believe that If he accepted
the Republican nomination he would be
indorsed br the Union Labor party.
Ryan swallowed the bolt but (wo da ye
after he was nominated P. H. McCarthy
took the labor nomination for himaelf.
In a' few daya the Democrata will meet
In' convention again and select. Mayor
Taylor "as their standard bearer, and
then Ryan will have to fight hard to
keep himself from being caught between
the upper and nether millstones.
Ryan hesitated long before he decided
( to run ror mayor. m wanted tne nom
: inatlon, but the pressure of Mayor Tay
.. lor' Influential friends was strong and
he feared to 'accept. At the critical
moment his political agent. Perry New
berrr. secretary of the Republican
league, reported that the Union Labor
Indorsement would not be hard to. oh
tslrv This opened a glittering vista to
the anxious candidate. According to
'the prophets of the Ryan camp a com
: blnatlon of Republicans and lahorltes
; behind a clean and popular young leader
wouia miKt victory certain, mewoerry
' called on P. H. McCarthy, spokesman of
the "Big Six" combination, which had
: tbtalnod control of the labor party con
; ventlon. McCarthy gave his visitor a
, -rfirttial- reception, but when Newberry
began, to talk coalition McCarthy re
started to diplomacy.
. " arrwberry Was Mistaken,
"The Taylor men tell me they can
control the Republican convention." he
aid tn -Newberry..' "Under the circum
stances we have nothing to talk about.
Let Mr. Ryan first get his nomination.
Then ws can talk business."
McCarthy's smile was no bland and
1 his handshake so nereetlc that New
berry went away convinced that the
leader of the "Big 81s" was for Ryan,
lie so reported at headquarters, and the
next nignt Ryan was nominated for
mayor, by, the Republican convention.
That was Tuesday.; . The following
niKht the followers, of ths "Biir ' Six3
held a caucus and agreed on P.' Ii. Mc
Carthy ' their candidate for mayor.
- McCarthy lost no time In getting Into
' the race. The following night, the cau
, ms program was carried out and Mc
Carthy was nominated.. , 1
Ryan met with serious opposition In
Ms convention. The Taylor Republicans
fought bard, declaring that Ryan's ac
tion In seeking the mayoralty after
leading a successful -primary battle for
reform . made a jest of the Republican
league's war cry of 'Citizenship above
partisanship." Delegate hurled charges
to and fro, defiantly, the minority
shouted' "sag Is w -whenever the chair
ruled against them, and the gallery
cheered for Taylor. When the roll was
called Ryan won toy vote of IS- to fit.
.There had been talk of a bolt, but all
the delegates remained in their seats,
nd minority, and majority Ajnlted In
- making- William- H Langdon the unani
mous choice of the Convention for dis
trict attorney. Although Langdon ap
peared . In person As.-received less ap
plause than-had been given st the men
: tlon of aMayor Tsylor's name, and while
' he was speaking nearly half of ths audi
ence trooped out.
Opponents of the
took that sa sn In
tention of the unpopularity of Lang
don, and they are now casting about for
a popular candidate to pit against mm.
Friends of Langdon say that the rapid
lessening of the' audience was due to
the fact that ma'hy bf the visitors had
attended the convention Just to see tne
fight snd went home when It ended.
That Taylor will cut heavily into ths
merchant vote,- which has always been
the main asset of Republican candidates
for mayor, li conceded, but to offset
this Ryan will be supported by many
members of ths Union Labor party.
The nomination of H. McCarthy re
sulted In a bolt, which was lad by
Thomas P. Eagan, chairman of ths
county committee of the Labor party.
About a score of delegates went out
with Eagan. Before the bolt one of the
Ragan men denounoed McCarthy as a
representative of "Patrick Calhoun and
the corporate Interests." This bellig
erent individual was Jos .Sullivan,
chairman of ths delegation from ths
onlv district which Michael Cty car
ried In the August primaries. Casey
end Eagan are both members of the
board of public works and they prioled
Issues in the convention. Jos Siilllvan
shouted defiantly to the majority. 'Tut
up your nominee, and we'll best hint at
ths poll." ;
Sagas Turns to Xyaa.
After the bolt Eagan announced that
he would support Ryan for mayor. His
followers will do likewise, Eagan la
expected to take the stump-for-Ryan
He la a rough and ready orator, la not
sfrsld to face an angry crowd, and ran
be counted upon to give P. H. Mc
Carthy aorrio uneasy moroentii. McCar
thy during his long reign ss president
of the building trades council, has Ynads
many enemies, AU ver the ttity work
lngmen are grinding political knlvea and
threatening to do some fearsome carv
ing once they get Into the ambush of a
voting-bush. McCarthy's friends speak
lightly of the bolt. "Those Yellows
don't count for anything," they say.
"Suppose they did. This is going to bs
a three-cornered firm, we have ib.ouv
votes In all. McCarthy -can lose 8,000
and still win. What Ryan gats from us
will do him no good, lie will be lucky
if he doesn't finish third In the raoe.''
The Democrats have about concluded
that they must nominate Langdon for
district attorney. Oavln McNab. boss
of the Democratic machine, tried to get
the Labor party leaders to agree on a
fusion which would have made Joseph
E. O'DonnelL a bright and highly-respectable
young Democrat, Langdon's
opponent, but the "Big Six'' Insisted on
going it alone. The labor combine has
not if t selected Its candidate for dis
trict attorney, but the straws now In
the air are blowing in the direction of
Frank McUowan, a lormer state sena
tor who made quits a reputation at the
capital by his advocacy several years
ago of labor bills. . The Labor party
platform promises prosecution of all of
fenders, confessed or unconvicted and
-declares strongly against "wholesale
immunity baths." MoQowan Indorses
those sentiments and promises to make
a hustling fight. If nominated. The
friends of Langdon are planning a hot
campa'gn for their favorite. They hope
to get Francis J. Heqey, Hiram Johnson

Father O'Hara Speaks of the False
Ideals of Social Obligations.
Of-all the false Ideals of soolal obli

s none more miscnievous man wai
which -leeds people to regard -the social
glass as the only proper and adequate
expression of friendship, said Father
O'Hara In his sermon at the cathedral
yesterday morning. Continuing, he
said: "It is a sad commentary on our
state of culture when we can nna no
higher tribute of appreciation to place
tne nana or a rriena man a glass oi
ntoxlcatlng liquor, ana it is a sorry
compliment to him when we are forced
to acknowledge that we best satisfy
his claims on our regards by an offer,
lng that appeals to his animal nature.
This perverted sense of good-fellow
ship is the source of the greatest part
of the drink evil. It leads young people
to form the habit of drink, who other
wise would never be led into it
"The treating habit fosters ruinous
extravagance. Men of moderate means
can 111 afford to meet the demands of
so-called good-fellowship in the matter
or treating, it is my Dener mat tne
remedy for the largest part of ths drink
evil is the renunciation of ths treating
habit bv men In every condition of life.
It is a remedy which should appeal to
every Intelligent person as a protesf
against a aegraamg laeaj oi social odu
gation. as a safeguard against excess
in drinking and as a business proposi
tion of dollars and cents."
