Most of Men Who Run the Saloons in Redlight District Are
Helpless Because of Fact That Their Businesses Con
ducted Under Power of Attorney, Says Speaker Before
East Side Baptist Church Congregation, at Meeting.
vouncuman James Mafruir told an
audience at th East Side Baptist ohurch
last night that a email coterie in the
cltr council Is responsible for th con
tinuance of licenses to sell liquor Held
by law violating resorts.
"If anyone had asked me four month
ago who was responsible fr th Im
moral conditions-that exist in this city
I would have said the laboring men, but
developments In tho last few months
have thoroughly convinced mo that such
is not . the case," tsald the councilman.
"Another statement that I am prepared
to substantiate Is that it ,1s not the
respectable saloon element, as most of
you imagine, xne fault lies with big
outness ana corrupt officials.
"Big business has governed this city,
u my Knowieage, xor tn last Z5 years.
1 am sorry, to be forced to admit
tnat most or these big business men and
corrupt officials are church members.
1 investigated ; what is known as , th
red light' district, and found that most
of the fnfortunate men running these
resorts were, i might say. owned body
ana soui uy me Jre-wers' association.
They art robbed by the brewer, robbed
by the landlord and are the legitimate
prey of the corrupt officials. ,
Power of Attorney.
J "1 went to ' the auditor's office and
r found that 101 saloons in this city wer
controlled by tha members of the Brevi
ers' association.- One' man, E. Glutch,
collector for the Weinhard brevrery, con
trols 62 of these places The other 49
are owned by four or flvbiher brew
eries ana brewery agencies. Iw4Ustate,
that every hell hole In tha city, except
two . or ' three, is controlled by these
Breweries, under what Is known
"power of attorney.' "
"On finding this condition ..of affairs
went to Air. Grant, our city attorney,
I asked If this was legal. He said abso
lutely To," I requested him to draft an
ordinance abolishing this 'power of at
torney, and presented it to th council
In the usual manner. I expected that
thla ordinance woald take tho usual
course and be referred to the liquor
license committee. But on motion of
Mr.' Burgard, seconded' by Mr. Baker, It
-was Indefinitely postponed bjf a vote of
nine to fiv. Th members voting to
muouniieiy postpone were .baker Bur
gard, Wallace, Watklns, Montag Joy,
Monks, Jennings and Menefne. Against
indefinite postponement were Clyde,
Daly Wilhelnv Schmeer and Magulre.
Mr, Dunning was absent. This meant
defeat for th ordinance.
"I then selected five combination
houses and had ordinances drafted to
revoke their licenses. A combination
house is what is known as a saloon and
bawdy house combined. These ordi
nances wero referred to the liauor 11-
cense committee. At the first meeting
ui mo liquor license committee I asked
that these ordinances be
the next meeting, because parties cam
io me ana, saia l was discriminating
against these places on account of th
trouble thes places had with Detective
Maner ana Mr. Perkins. These parties
agreeu to rurnisn evidence against oth
er places, so that all could fare alike
I waited two weeks for this evidence Xo
d proauoed,- but as It was not forth
coming action was deferred against the
other places pending the action of th
license committee en tha ordinance ha.
for them." .,-.
At this point in his address Council
man Magulre detailed th circumstance
attending tn effort to revoke the li
cense of one of tha places and th fart
that, though Chief SI over had said it
was a -running sore, " tn license waa
not revoKea Dut transferred. . .

Albert Ehrgott, pastor of the church:
said in response that the recall should
b invoked against th councilmeYT who
nad voted to continue the licenses, and
that If his congregation did not support

tho who wer willing; to make their

Ban "Francisco, Oct. 9. Two hundred
strikebreakers housed In the Southern Journal In
Pacific shops here armed with clubs (make up
made of pick handles, ax handles and
any other weapon that might crush a
man's skull, , wvro given notice today
by the board of police commissioners
thnt any armed men found outside the
railroad properties would be arrested.
The action was taken after President
Reguin of the shop employes had been
informed by his pickets that 210 clubs
were distributed in tho yards Saturday,
and that the men had been supplied with
considerable money. Tho report of th
pickets was thnt the men would make a
dash outside the fence for the "purpose
of cleaning out the union pickets. It is
believed the police warning will .prevent
any clash, however.
Chief Klndulon, commanding the rail
rood guards, complained that 17 of the
watchmen s stars had been taken away
from them. The pickets also reported
that five negroes left the property of
the company and when questioned by
the pickets drew razors and forced the
union men to retreat.
..Continued reports are received at
union headquarters from all along the
Harrlman lines telling of many dam
aged engines and delayed trains. San
Antonio reports that tho walkout was a
