Judge Ellsworth how has under advisement the question as to whether or not he will Issue a dta-'tlon to the city treasurer aa prayed Jfor In the complaint. It la altogether probable that before Judge Ellsworth takes any, action he will submit the whole matter to Dlatrict Attorney 'Donahue, who, under the law, has i direct supervision over all such crim inal matters. A number of years ago a suit sim liar to the one Instituted today by MacMlllan was broueht in a .civil 08' llenry P. Dalton, who was then county assessor. In that caae. like In the present Instance, tha matter was (transferred to the criminal depart ment for disposal. , Accusing Edwin Meese,-treasurer of ftha city of Oakland, of malfeasance (In office and the Juggling of municipal 'funds for his personal gain, C. B. uao-iMullan, an expert accountant of the fctty, this forenoon filed in the superior (court complaint la which he asks that Meese be cited to appear and ishow cause why be should not be I ousted from office. MacMullan also utsVs judgment against Meese for 1600, land coats, under aectlon 772 of tha .Penal Code, which prescribed a re-wsrd for information In such cases. Meese was appointed city treasurer ioy - me municipal commissioner ui fflnance and revenue, John Forrest, ;July 1, 1111, and the city council con-firmed tha appointment the same 'date, Meese qualified July I and ave the required bond for the falth-iful performance of his official duties. IMacMullan's complaint la that ever alnce he took cnarge the city treasurer has "wilfully and corruptly" refused and neglected to perform certain official duties pertaining to his .office. NEGLECT CHARGED. ' It Is charged that Meesa, in collecting and receiving money belonging to .and for the use of the city, in hia official capacity haa neglected to settle for the money during the month of .July, 1811, or since then, with the auditor of the municipality, and Immediately pay all of tha money Into the city treasury, accompanied by the certificates of the auditor for the ben-tugLtheJunuVto which. thn mosay 'properly belonged, in the manner Mr iquired by section 113 of the city cr4r iter. It Is alleged that at the time he took office Meese received from Jiis money and should have settled with itbe auditor before the last day of the (week In which he received the money, I which he is alleged to have lalled to 'do. , ' - 1 . During the month of August, it is .alleged by MacMullan, Meese neglect-led to make, a statement of the amount of publlo moneys which he had on 'deposit In the Bank of Germany. This money .Is claimed to have been personal property excess tax. MacMullan chargaa also thai Meese la stock holder and director of the Bank of Germany. , During the month of De ember, 1911, It ia alleged, Meese also failed to make bis monthly statement 'of receipts and- expenditures to the city council, and that he has paid out money on behalf of the 'city without ' warrants from the-auditor ever alnce July 3, 111, in violation oi the state 18". MacMullan further charges that' Meese's reports for July, 1911, show a default of over 1000 In the city , treasury. '. ....... NONSENSE, SATS MEESE. "The charges In this auif are nonsensical," declared City Treasurer Meese today when asked concerning the statements made by MacMullan. "MacMullan is what we call a tax sharp,' and I suppose he hag failed ; to get Wa money the way he wanted "A 'tax sharp' Is a; man who looks up old records In the tax collector's office of money due hre and there, nnii then roes to merchants and property-owners ana waucea . ui assign the account to mm ior a certain percentage, "Cut there is absolutely, nothing In the charges.

Tour honor ia even more familiar with the so-called graft cases than I am, and In my opinion It would not only be appropriate to dismiss these Indictments, but It would not be Inappropriate to dismiss a.11 of the Indictments against all of the defendants. The district" court of appears, In Its decision in the case of the People" against Coffey, decided that any convictions which might result from this testimony would be against the law. All of the Indict ments against all the graft defend ants are affected by thla decision." Judge Dunne aaid: -"The district attorney haa handed me a memorandum in the case of Eugene E. Schmltz. I have been examining the record, but I haven't finished It. I will say at this time that I have not made up my mind oi) all these matters. I will deny the iwesent motion without pre-ludlce r to reconsidering the matter later." "I will, a, tny own motion, Include all of the so-called graft cases In a request for a dismissal," responded McNutt. "The evidence is nf a similar character In each caae and not sufficient to convict without the presence of a certain witness and not strong van If that wltneas were here, and according to the decision in the Coffey case there could be no conviction." "You are not forgetting the decision In the Ruef case, are youT" inquired Judge Dunne. FINAL REJOINDER, "No, and I am not forgetting the action of the Supreme Court in making flesh of one and fowl of the other and I don't think they will forget it very soon, either," was the parting ihot of the assistant district attorney. Counsel for Ruef then left tha courtroom and It is understood that the former boss will not testify in the Jchmlti trial unless Judge Dunne dismisses the IndlctmSjits. Owing to Mc-Vutt's amended mdtion, however. It Is thought that he cannot long refuse to wipe tha cases from his calendar.

(Continued From Page 1) validity of the act It Is sufficient to say that the argument of the commission is mosfeofiinnaing to show that the police power of the govern ment exercised In the regulation of Interstate commerce Is quite sufficient to Justify the Imposition upon tbe interstate railroad companies of tbe liability for the Injuries to Its employes co an insurance basis. RIGHT IS PRESERVED. "The third objection- J ..that the rignt or trial by Jury, guaranteed by the seventh am endjn ent lg dnie As a matter of Tact, the rlghtls preserved in this act by permitting a Jury to pass on the Issue when duly remanded, In accordance with the limitations of the act" President Taft then alludes to the alleged Iniquities attending personal Injury litigation. He declares that perjured testimony, emotional Juries and badly constructed laws limiting liability have tended to hamper the administration of exact Justice, while the heavy expense of litigation haa rendered.it almost Impossible for the poor man to command his rights. In referring to the conditions because of this form of litigation, the President says: , . ; . "The administration of Justice today is clogged In every court by the great number of suits for damages for personal Injury. The settlement of such cases by this system will serve to reduce the burden of our courts one-half by taking the cases out of court and disposing of them by this short cut." - The message concludes with the reiterated hope that the bill may be passed -before " the " adjournment " of the present session of Congress. LAW le DRASTIC j The most drastio employers' liability legislation In many yars is proposed byi tha Employers' Liability and Workmen's Compensation report, made publlo today, j Headed by Senator Sutherland of Utah,! the eommliion"s personnel also consists ef Senators ""ChamBiflaiid" of Oregon (Rep.), Moon of Pennsylvania (Rep.), Brantley of Georgia and D. U Ceass, editor o a railroad man's magazine. The report Is accompanied by the draft of a bill in which tha commission eliminates the common law doctrine of negligence with what It characterises as the "unjust defense of assumption of risk, . fellow-servants' fault and contributory negligence." Compensation with a general basis of an equivalent to one-half wagea is to be paid In every case except where the Injury or death Is caused by the wilful Intention of the employe to Injure himself or In case of Intoxication on duty. WILL RAISE EXPENSE. The combined railroad companies of the eountry are paying out to their employes for accidents In settlements and Judgments approximately tle,085,00 and the proposed law, as nearly as the approximate ornate, will raise thla by 26 per cant Figuring on. the periodical payments extending over a term of yeara and capitalized at S per cent, the commission points out that the total received by the benefldaHei would reach an aggregate of 118,000,000 annually. It points out that for every dollar the railroad companies are compelled to pay under existing law they will, under tha proposed law, pay approximately 11.25 and that for every dollar the employes and their dependent now receive they would receive a sura much in excess of $1.25. It says that during 108, 190 and 110 the railroads paid IH.600,000 n settlements and Judgements alone on account of the death of nearly 12,000 worker and 821,838,000 approximately for permanent or temporary disabling Injuries as well as sustaining an ifrjonomlo loss of KMM.OOO days. TSu?2ed bill declares that it Is the ponCongress to consider the burden of pafe?ents for personal Injuries as an element of the cost of transportation and directs the Interstate Commerce Commission to recognize and give affect to this policy. - . IN EVERY IN8TANCE. The bill would provide that every common carrier engaged In Interstate or foreign commerce by railroad shall pay compensation to SJiy employs who sustains personal injury m Una of duty or to his dependents In case of his death. lf makes the remedy exclusive by reason of the compensation being complete satisfaction. It abolishes all existing common law and atatutory remedies and applies to all railroads in the District of Columbia as well. It would exclude from compensation tha first fourteen calendar days, except that the employer Is to furnish all necessary medical and surgical -aid; In eluding hospital services,, and Is to continue to so furnish after the fourteen days under specific provisions. The employer or his dependent must notrry" tfiemphjyer--v-hpcoident withln'thlrty days, except under certain contingqneies which extend the limit to' ninety daya After the fourteen-day period following the Injury, employer and employa.are to agrea in writing on a settjament, arbitration committees may be organlied by them to settle disputes and award compensation, subject to review Within two years by an adjuster of accident Insurance" to be appointed by each United Btatis Dlatrict court for four-year terms at from 11800 to 83000. annually. - PETITIONING ADJUSTER, Either party may petition the adjust to proceed. The adjuster Is to report his finding to the court Rlpht to compensation is forfeited by an employe as long as he refuses pbysleal examination by the employer's physician. Jury trial rights are preserved, but are to be deemed waived except on demand.

Personal injury, compensation Is made on- the basis of 60 per cent of monthly wagea for life for permanent total disability and 60 per cent during temporary total disability. For loss ef an arm payments are to continue 78 months; a leg, 60 months; an eye, 80 months; a thumb, 13 months. No payments are to be made while the employe Is at work at wages 80 per cent of those he received at the time of his Injury. The commission made provision for contribution of payments by Joint employers, for defining different? baneftdariea tinder the act for modes of payment of compensation. Among the points contended and discussed by 'the commission In Its report are these: Congress has the constitutional power to pass the proposed legislation. It is a regulation of Interstate and foreign commerce. It does not constitute' a denial of due process. The common law system of employer' liability - based upon' negligence, Is filled with evils and Incongruities and wasteful and "the greater proportion ef tha money paid In satisfaction goes Into tha pocket of counsel who exact their compensation. In form of ' exorbitant contingent fees and in various ways is 'consumed in passing from, 'tha: companies' treasuries to the hands of the employe or dependent The proposed statute s not objection able because It includes employes not engaged In the hazardous part of; employment.

EWER'S LETTER. ' Dr. Ewer's letter to Turner on the matter follows: I have to advise you that there Is at present In Ban Francisco an epidemlo of rabies. At least , twenty. Infected dogs have been 7 discovered, chiefly in the region ' of the Presidio.. .. Several , persona -have been bitten, but all have been saved so far by the use of the Pasteur immunizing treat' men t - ,: . - It Is necessary for us to take - precautions to prevent the Infection getting foothold In Oakland. A quarantine against dogs has been efficient In keeping rabies but of Australia altogether, and It In combination with muzzling laws has put an end to the fearful epidemics formerly common iirTJreatr Britain." I would suggest a ouarantlna against dogs from 6a r Francisco, and I believe that a special request to the Southern Pacific people will accomplish this. In case rabies appear in Oakland It will be advisable to at once pass a muzzling ordinance to remain In effect until the danger la passed. The efficiency of our pound should be immediately Increased to the end that all stray dogs may . be gotten off our streets at once. . To make the pound still further -efficient In this particular matter It would be necessary to separate the dogs, for If one dog with rabies gets Into the pound and bites several of the other dogs "and these dogs are returned to : their owners, they may develop the disease as late as four or five months after they ara released. Incubation period is sometimes quite long. Turner then sent the following letter V Ben F. Woolner, the city attorney: I enclose herewith copy of a letter Just received from Dr. Ewer, which is self-explanatory: Would it be within the -power of the city council to declare a quarantine by resolution alone? In case the disease should appear I think It would be well for us to have an ordinance prepared In advance requiring muzzles on all dogs until the danger is past, as the doctor suggests. Will you kindly prepare such an ordinance? . If you have any views to submit in the way of controlling this matter I would be very pleased to learn them. LETTERS TO RAILROADS. Commissioner Turner also had the following letters forwarded: James P. Potter, Esq., Buperln tendent Ban Francisco, Oakland & Ban Jose Railway, 70S Ban Pablo avenue, Oakland, Cal. . .Dear Sir: I enclose herewith copy of a letter received this date from Dr. E. K.
