Speaker Champ Clark Campaigns
With Bourbon Candidate in
Illinois and Missouri
Governor Says Both Opponents
Are Intimately Connected
With Big Business
ST. bOOTS, Dot SV—Speaker Champ
Clark and Governor "Woodrow Wilson
campaigned together today in Illinois
Cheers and great enthusiasm greeted !
the two men as they appeared in I
Springfield, Granite City and East St.
Louis in Illinois, and in St. Louis in |
The crowd at the fair grounds in
Springfield was a big one. The gover
nor's voice was weak and he could not
reach the outer extremity of the throng
that faced him.
"My thought about both Mr. Taft
and Mr. Roosevelt," said the governor,
in his speech at the fair grounds, "is
that of entire respect, but' these gen
tlemen have been so intimately asso
ciated with the powers that have been
?<'etermining the policy of this govern
ment for almost a generation that they
can not look at the affairs of the United
states with the view of a new age and
a changed set of circumstances.
"They are unable to speak; they
sympathize with the people; their
hearts no doubt go out to the great
masses of unknown men In this coun
try; but their thought is in close hab
itual association with those -who have
framed the policies of this country dur
ing all our life time.
"And those who have framed those
policies have framed the protective
tariff, have developed the trusts, have
co-ordinated and ordered all the great
economic forces of this country in sjich
fashion that nothing but an outside
force breaking In can disturb their
domination and control."
NOT SUSTAINED BY PROOF
Court So Rules in Perjury Charge
Against Oakland Promoter
Police Judge Daniel C. Deasy dis
missed the charge of perjury against
Alexander Murdock. an Oakland pro
moter, at the conclusion yesterday of
the testimony of Mrs. Eugenia C. Van
Luven, the complaining witness.
Mrs. Van Luven charged that Mur
dock perjured himself In San Francisco
last year when he swore before a no
tary that he was not married. Mrs.
Van Luven asserted that she since had
learned that the promoter was mar
ried and had two children.
Deasy ruled that the prosecution did
not prove the fact of a previous mar
riage. The only way to prove such a
marriage. contended Deasy, was to
produce the wife or have a certified
copy of the marriage license or have
people present who witnessed the mar
riage. This the prosecution was un
able to establish.

STATE'S BEST 'AD'
Dr. Anna E. Shaw Urges Women
to Make Best Use of
Right to Vote
"Nothing ever advertised California
half so much as the granting of the
suffrage to women; your boomers with
oranges, apples and grapes never had
anything like the effect the suffrage
law did—lo days later they were hold
ing mass meetings all over the world
to talk about It. On coming here since
that time I find the women have a
human and self-respecting look—and
so do the men.
"You women voters must be self
reliant. Don't accept too readily the
political talk of men, for If there Is
any place you can't trust the advice
of men It Is In politics. Because the
vote has proved of no value to men.
therefore it can be of no value to
women, seems to be a favorite mascu
line argument against suffrage."
These were some of the epigrams
delivered by Dr. Anna E. Shaw, presi
dent of the National Women's Suffrage
association, in a talk before the San
Francisco center of the California Civic
league last night. The occasion was a
dinner In honor of the anniversary of
the passage of the suffrage act in Cali
fornia, and was held in Scottish Rite
Miss Shaw, who was introduced as
"the standard bearer of the suffrage
movement in America," urged the
women to make the best use of the
right to vote, and complimented them
for the judicious use which they had
made of It In this state.

HONOLULU, Oct* 9 —News received
here today tells of the real reasons as
to why General Count Nogl and his
wife committed suicide the day of the
late emperor of Japan's funeral. One
was that Nogl hoped by his suicide to
rebuke the high Japanese government
officials who have abused their posi
tions to acquire great wealth, and to
inoulcate a spirit of higher patriotism
in the Samurai class. Another was that
there was an agreement between the
late emperor and Nogi that the latter
should choose a time to die after the
death of the emperor in expatlation
for causing the fearful loss of life dur
ing the siege of Port Arthur. Nogl re
fused to adopt an heir on the ground
that his title to peerage should not
descend to one who had not earned It.

. to Seclusion of Villa
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
MENLO PARK. Oct. 9.—C. W. Smith,
the millionaire president of ths Coffin-
Redington Wholesale Drug company of
42 Second street, San Francisco, 6.".
years of age, has been married a second
time, the bride being a Mrs. Yates.
Smith is keeping the facts of the mar
riage as deep a secret as possible. The
curious reason given- for the secrecy
maintained by the widower of 65 years
regarding his second marriage is that
news of it might irritate the family Of
his first wife, who was a Miss Nightin
gale of San Francisco.
The second marriage of Smith was
performed by Archbishop Rlordon of
the Catholic church, who is a warm per
sonal friend of the wealthy drug mer
Smith reluctantly admitted tonight
that he was married, but declined to
discuss the details of the affair even to
the extent of telling where and when'
the ceremony had been performed.
The millionaire druggist lives In a
handsome country place, "The Peppers,''
In Santa Cruz avenue, Menlo Park. He
keeps a retinue of servants and main
tains a large establishment.
Christian Whelan Smiths first wife
was a Nightingale, and her relatives
still live in San Francisco. It is known
that they were strongly adverse to
Smith's second marriage, and it is the
belief of Smith's friends that, to avoid
any friction with the Nightingale fam
ily, the druggist quietly arranged his
second marriage, taking few friends
into his confidence. c
