Register Ere Midnight,
Else You Can Not Vote
Registration for the general November
election will close at midnight tonight.
No citizen will be permitted to vote
at the general election next month unless
he shall have registered since the first
of this year. The state administration
has deprived republican citizens of the
right to vote for Taft electors in this
state, but they have not been deprived
of the ri«rht to vote for their congres
sional and legislative nominees.
The registration la*t night reached the
approximate total of 130.0C0. Registrar
J. H. Zemansky estimates that the total
tonight will be 135.000. Of this number
about 45.000 will be women.
The central registration bureau in the
old city hall at McAllister and Hyde
streets will be open until midnight, but
branch registration booths will be open
from 10 a. m. till 10 p. m. at the fol
lowing locations today: Battery and Mar

in convention at Sacramento named
only 33 members of the state central

crease its number as it saw fit up to a
maximum of 105 members. i
That authorization undoubtedly will
result in the enlargement of the re

republicans in California.
The republican organization has
been formally recognized by th*» na- j

DISPUTE OVER LAND
Interior Department Approves
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—A settlement
of the long standing dispute between
the interior department and the state
of California regarding the indemnity
land selections of that state has been
reached, and the first list of lands
under It was approved, today.
The controversy goes back to 1904,
when the government suspended all
indemnity grants. Up to that time the
state selections amounted to 400,000
acres, and the department refused to
allow them upon the ground that the
claim was far in excess of the state's
right under the law. The understand
ing arrived at reduces the selections to
350,000 acres, but it is agreed that if
the fil'ngs exceed this the state shall
be allowed to take the lands and pay
for them at regulation government
The entries allowed today cover
about 6,000 acres and all are in the Los
