In San Francisco Mass.
CALHOUN HAS LAID DEEP PLOT
Con Urn With Associates on Question
of Uniting to Get Full Control
of City Government.
San Francisco, May 33. Kcports
aro current that President Calhoun
of tho United Hallways has engaged
In a deep-laid plot to dofeat Francis
J. Honey, sclzo tho reins of tho mu
nicipal government under tho gulso
of a law and order movement, and go
any length In ordar both to savo
himself from conviction and Impris
onment under tho charges brought
by tho graft prosecution, and to tho
adrantago of himself In his fight
with tho carmen.
Calhoun has been working for sov
oral days in a desperate effort to
consolidate In aid of this movement
all tho moro important financial In
terests affected by the graft disclos
ures, aicn nign in iinancini circles
wcro seen going In and out of his
office throughout tho day and It Is
alleged that other conferences wero
held In tho business center of tho
city. It is stated that, foiled In their
attempt to get into touch with tho
prosecution, through Intervention of
the Committee of Sovcn, Calhoun
and his associates, somo of whom
know they are fighting to save them
selves from San Qucntln, havo
planned a new stroko by which they
hopo to placo thomselves In control
of affairs to such a degree that -they
will bo ablo to block tho efforts of
Spreckels, Durns and Heney.
Their Bchcmo as outlined In theso
reports. Is to form a now commltteo
as a successor to tho ono which has
Just resigned under fire, which will
bo prepared to resort to extreme
measures. Grasping the opportunity
of the carmen's strike and tho riots
and disturbances in the streets of tho
city, tho reported plan is for a mass
meeting to be called under tho pre
text of a law and order measure.
From this meeting those who havo
been actlvo In tho graft prosecution
will be excluded on the ground that
they have already refused to have
anything to do with a commltteo
which bad been appointed to
straighten out tho tnnglo of munici
At this meeting a committee on
law and order will be appointed.
which will go first to Chief of Police
Dlnan and request his resignation In
the name of the cltiiens of San Fran
cisco. If Dlnan refuses to turn over
tho control of tho pollco department
to them the members of this com
mittee will, It Is claimed. Immediate
ly declare that tho conditions In the
city are so serious that tho only solu
tion Is a vigilance commltteo and,
acting as such, they will assume con
trol of the city. A part of tho plan
Is alleged to bo an attempt to per
suade tho governor to act in concert
with this vigilance committee, UBlng
the carmen's strike as an argument
to Induco the governor to Issuo a call
lor troops, and possibly to bring
about tho Intervention of fodcral authorities.
