Whether He Succeeds
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 After panning
the entire forenoon In the cities of Oak
land and Berkeley, across the bay, Presi
dent Taft was welcomed to San Francisco
this afternoon by a tin una which lined the
walk In some places ten deep along a line
of march extending over neatly three mllee
of the principal streets. The school chil
dren of this city, Oakland and Berkeley
gave their Joyous cheers for the president,
and, as In most of the other cities Mr.
Taft has visited on this trip, were one of
the prominent features of his reception.
Visiting three cities and passing three
quarters of an hour on Pan Francisco bay,
the president had a busy day. As he was
crossing from Oakland mole to Ban Fran
cisco t army transport Thomas was set
ting rail for the Philippines, and by the
. president's request the revenue cutter
, Golden Oate, on which he was a passenger,
was drawn up alongside the big vessel, the
sides of which were lined with soldiers and
the families of officers.

On tho bridge of the transport the Philip
pine constabulary band, which played at
the president's Inauguration In Washing

was present this morning In the Greek
theater at Berkeley when be made an ad

drawn up and was playing "Hall to the
Chief" as the president shouted across the
water to the khakt-clad soldiers:
"Uood bye, boys; I wish you( a pleasant
Answering cheers came back to the pres
ident. The propeller of . the transport be
gan to churn the waters into a foam, a
tippling wave spread from the bow as the
vessel. Ray with flags, gained headway
and the president looked wistfully toward
the Golden Gate.
"Does It make you feel homesick, Mr.
'resident r' asked a member of the presi

The president never loaes. an opportun

word fur the Philippines and he always
Is pure, of a respective appreciation. Re
ferring to his own experiences at Manila,
in one of his addresses today he said:
"You never can tell what the future
is going to be. It seemed a long way
around to the white house to go out 10,
wxt talks Into the tropics, but that la where
It landed me."
The president reached the shores of San
Francisco bay early today with a typical
fog hanging over the cities that front the
haibor. Before 11 o'olock, however, the
sun had burned its way through the
gray mist clouds and when the president
reached fan Frandsuo at 1 o'clock the day
was one of blue skied splendor.
Address at Berkeley.
Berkeley had the honor of being the first
city overlooking the. bay to welcome the
president. He was driven In an automobile
to the Greek theater of the University of
California, where he was greeted by Prof.
He rWd Moses, who had served with Mr.
Taft in the Philippines. The president
mad a brief address, in which he declared
that Ideals In popular government were a
ailendid thing to cultivate, but that the
man at the helm must be content with a
compromise, must accept his responslbll
tles and "play the game," whether he suc
ceeded In bringing the people to follow
him or had to follow the people.
From Berkeley the president went to
Oakland and made an address to an aut
door throng of several thousands. In
both Berkeley and Oakland he received a
nearly greeting from crowds lining the
sidewalks of the long line of march.

parochial school children of the city.
Next the president laid the cornerstone of
the nrw Young Men's Christian association

Question of Intent Practically Only
One Before the Jury.
NO IMPROPER INFLUENCE USED
Allegation that Juror Was Tampered
with Not Proven.
HISTORY OF FAMOUS CASE
Danker, Publisher and Railroad
Owner Convicted of Improper
I'se of Deposits In Hla
CHICAGO. 111.. Oct. 6-John R. Walsh,
convicted of misapplication of the funds
of the Chicago National bank, must serve
the sentence of five years' Imprisonment
Imposed upon him by the trial Jury, save
In the event the supreme court upsets
the affirmation of the verdict of .guilty
handed down by the United States cir
cuit court of .appeals here today.
Counsel for Mr. Walsh In their appeal
laid stress on what they alleged was a
lack of criminal Intent on the part of
the defendant. In the very lengthy brlf
which they .filed much law was quoted
to show that the convicted banker, news
paper publisher and railroad owner, used
the funds of, the bank in .what he con
sidered a legitimate manner.
The opinion of the court of appeals,
written by Judge Humphrey and handed
down by Judge Grosscup, Is brief and
confined almost wholly to the question
of criminal intent. The allegation that
Juror Palmer was unduly Influenced is
dismissed with a word and but little more
Is wasted In eliminating the allegation'of
Inconsistency and repugnancy,
"80 long as there is no inconsistency In
the verdict as to the substance of the
matter charged in the various counts."
says the opinion, "the verdict will not be
disturbed. If the gravamen of the charge
In each count on which there has been a
verdict of guilty Is the same, there is a
consistency in the verdict"
No Improper Influence.
A to Juror Palmer, the ODlnion reads:
"The record does not show that any
Improper Influence worked upon the Jury.
The return made to the court wss in fact
the verdict of twelve Jurors. The attempt
by one of them afterwards to Impeach his
verdict can have no consideration. This
doctrine la well established and Is based
upon reason as well as upon authority."
In the instructions given the Jury by
Judge Anderson in the trial court the
higher tribunal finds no error. As to. the
"gets of criminal intent the opinion reads:
"Under section 5209 . .there could be
misapplication of bank funds by an officer
which would be Innocent and not criminal
and there could be misapplication which
under the statutes would be . criminal.
What would show the difference between
misapplications which were criminal and
those which were not, what would show
Innocence or guilt, good faith or bad faith,
the court sought by instruction carefully
to define and we think did fairly define."
Counsel for Mr. Walsh have forty days
In which to file an application for a re
hearing by the court of appeals. Meanwhile
he will be at liberty under his present
bonds of $50,000.
The court room was Jammed with a
crowd which overflowed into the corridor
during the proceedings. Tho eleventh hour
attempt of the defense to file additional
citations designed to show lack of criminal
intent came to naught The matter was
taken under consideration by those con
cerned before court opened and a decision
reached that the new arguments would In
no wise alter the opinion as already writ
ten. Walsh Great Promoter.
The three Walsh banks the Chicago Na
tional, the Equitable Trust company, the
Home Savings bank were closed by the
comptroller of the currency on Dec. 18.
11)05, nearly five years ago. At that time
Walsh not only owned these Institutions
and the Chicago Chronicle, but owned all,
or nearly all of the stock of the following
The Acme Gas company, the Bedford
Belt Railway company: Bedford Quarries
company, the Chicago Southern Railway
company, the Chicago Wharflng and Stor
age company, the Indiana Southern Coal
company, the Illinois Southern Railway

Stanton Coal company, the Ohio Quarries
company (of Ohio), the Ohio Quarries com
pany (of Illinois), the Southern Indiana
Coal company, the Southern Indiana Rail
way company, the Southern Missouri Rail
way company, and the Wisconsin and
Michigan Railway company.
According to the brief of the government
on the appeal all of these companies were
bankrupt, or on the verge of It, when
bought by Walsh for little or nothing.
Their securities were unmarketable and
practically worthless. Then, It Is alleged,
Walsh formed corporations to buy these
companies from himself, taking In payment
stock of the new corporations and bonds

Some of the witnesses are putting up
some odd claims before the grand Jury,
even expecting the government will make
good the amounts they lost through the
Maybray deals. There is a monotonous
sameness to the stories, stories of duplicity
and anticipation and a disinclination to
confess to their own participation In the
games in which they expected to make a
big rake-off. and got badly raked instead.

be examined today, but the grand Jury
will not submit its report until is com

MONEY LEGISLATION NEEDED
Congress Must Meet Situation Born of
the Panic of 1007.
PLANS OF THE ADMINISTRATION
Bill Will Probably Be Drawn
by Monetary Commission Along;
Lines of President Taft'a
WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.-The coming con
gress must meet a situation born of the
panic of 1907, when the issue of clearing
house certificates by the ' government to
supply sufficient currency to meet the de
mands of the business urteresta of the
wmritry was necessary-" i;h temporary leg
islation enacted during", that critical period
must be either supplanted" or re-enacted
Into permanent law.' and foremost among
the various projects that have been ad
vanced as a proper solution of the govern
ment's problem stands the proposed na
tional central bunk.
It Is the comman belief that it will form
the basis of the curative legislation to be
recommended by the monetary commission
and President Taft in his recent Boston
speech signified his own favorable disposi
tion toward the project.
"A bank of the people and for the people"
Is the definition of this Institution made
by George M. Reynolds, president of the
American Bankers' association, in his Chi
cago speech. He pointed out that the peo
ple were to be the stockholders, for anyone
would be privileged to buy the bank stock
Just as he might a government bond. A
small Interest on such an Investment would
be guaranteed by the government. Any
other earnings more than sufficient to pay
the guaranteed Interest would be shared
by the government and by the stockholders.
To Avoid Political Control,.
Political control of the great bank would
be made at least extremely difficult by
the life appointment of the officers. In
tegrity of operation would be assured by a
board of supervisors appointed by the
president, the secretary of the treasury and
the comptroller of the currency (subject to
the approval of the senate) for alternate
terms of at least eight years to bridge
over political mutations.
Thus would be met the objections founded
upon the history of the old United States
bank, that the Central bank might be
prostituted to political use and be made
an engine ofr the perpetuation In power of
one party. It is not intended that the
Central bank should support the credit of
the nation. If the national government needs
funds, If It spends more money than it
collects by taxation, it must continue in
the old way to borrow from the world-at-large
by the sale of bonds.
Bank to Issue Notes.
The single purpose of this projected bank,
would be to safeguard the business Inter
est of the people In their private relations.
If there were need for more money for
business purposes, the bank would supply
It by notes and If there were a plethora.
In dull times these notes would be retired
rapidly. Governmental assistance to the
Institution would be limited to the deposit
with the Central bank of all government
funds now in the National banks. The
existing banks, It is hoped, would find

GUESTS DEBATE THE BURNING SUBJECT
With Four Cents
as the Maximum
Agreement Reached at Cleveland
Which Taket Street Car Contro
versy Out of Politics.
CLEVELAND. O.. Oct. B.-A conference
was held today to arrange final details
which will result In an absolute settlement
of the local street railway situation which
has been bitterly agitated for eight years.
During the life of .the controversy It has
been a political Issue at all times. Partial
settlements have been made and many pro
posed, but all failed of their object. Now
peace is asbured.
Tha basis of the strike has been Mayor
Tom L. Johnsons contention for a 8-cent
fare. The proposed settlement will be on
this rate of fare and will eliminate the
street car question from the fall campaign.
It is agreed the city shall give the Cleve
land Railway company, the owner of the
local lines, a twenty-five-year franchise,
revokable at any time any of the details of
the contract with the city Is void. The city
reserves the right to buy the lines at any
time municipal ownership Is made lawful.
The city also reserves the right to name a
purchaser of the lines after eight years.
The Initial rate of fare Is to be 3 cents on
all lines, with a 1-cent extra charge for a
transfer. Both the city and the railway
company have agreed to let Judge Robert
W. Tayler of the ITnlted States court de
termine the value of the railway property
and the maximum rate of fare
It is agreed that at no time shall the rate
of fare be greater than will allow the com
pany an earning of more than 6 per cent on
the value If the property, clnslstent with
good service. Judge Tayler has Indicated
that he will make the maximum rate 4
cents for a cash fare and the regular ticket
rate seven tickets for 25 cents, and a cent
extra for transfers. This proposition has
been accepted both by the city and the

than double the original selling price.
The first sensational reports came
through from Nevada some two weeks ago,
when It was told about quietly that ore
running SISO.OoO to the ton had been found
on tho company's property. This report
was followed by another, which said that
the rich streak, which had at first been
three inches, has widened to eleven Inches,
and was still spreading out. And then
came the story of a streak of solid gold
two, inches wide in the vein. One of the
principal owners of the Bonanza said he
didn't put much faith In the two-Inch
streak, but he did know that the ore now
being taken from the property was of
wonderful richness. Much of It Is so rich
that It Is being taken direct to the banks

The glory of streaming lights end
showers of stars, scintillating In ever
changing hues, ascending far aloft Into the
vault of the night sky, heralded the near
approach of the day of the coming of the
king. Thousands of the subjects of the
kingdom came forth to view the display
of pyrotechnics from the merry King's
fizzing rockets with their trailing wake
of gleaming sparks sailed over the cheer
ing thousands to explode in one final
blossoming of showering stars, hundreds of
feet above. Set plecee cast the glow of
many colored lights Into the faces of the
carnival crowd and illuminated in weird
tints their Joyous features. As each piece
faded away In Its extitlc and Short lived
beauty, another followed With other sur
prises. Cascades of dazzling lights represented
In lines of fire, the sweeping water of the
falls. Delineated In biasing lights, two
engines crashed together and fell a tangled
wreck. This piece ended the fireworks dis
play of Ak-Sar-Ben.,
The big Jostling crowds approved much.
One gay picture hat fell a victim to the

Tho windows and the roofs of the buildings

least 40.000 persons viewed tha display and
on the carnival grounds It waa declared the
biggest nlKht of the season's festivities.
The King's Highway was but a sea of
humanity, gay and frivolous. One couldn't
walk. It was Just barely possible to move
In the eddies of the crowd. Where oppos
ing currents met there was a crush. But
then eerybody was Joyous and no one
minded. And a little confetti down one's
neck and In the hair didn't count, either.
"Never saw the like since I was on the
varsity eleven," laughed one big chap,
shouldering his way Into the tide of the
surging crowd at the head of a column
of his smaller associates.
"Now get down there fellows and put
me through this hole.
"There that's better, we're In the open
for a breathing apell now."
