Appeal for Amendment
MEN GIVE AID
Leaders in AH Pursuits Voice
Sentiment in Favor of Two
Feminine enthusiasm for amendment
6 of the city charter, to be voted on
December 10. providing , a 12 hour day
for the firemen, was manifested strong
ly yesterday afternoon at the meeting
of the ladies' auxiliary of the San Fran
cisco Fire Department Two Platoon as-
Bociation in thr. Auditorium annex.
The of several hundred
women and a few men was so decidedly
in favor of the passage of the measure
that it was urged that it become simply

thf> women who addressed the large
audience aroused enthusiasm, stirred
up sentiment and gave some very prac
tical details as to how campaigning
might bo most effectively carried on.
Mrs. John S. Phillips, president of
the auxiliary, presided and introduced
the speakers with a few graceful words
in each instance. She said that she had
consented to take the chair, not because
ehe was particularly well fitted for the
task, nor yet because she was personally
interested because of relationship or
close friendship with any fireman, but
because she felt the cause to be a just
one and because she found on investi
gation that the demands of the firemen
were neither extravagant nor unrea
Seated on the platform were, besides
the speakers, Mrs. Thomas F. Graham,
wife of Judge Graham, and Mrs. Bessie
Kohn, district deputy grand president,
Native Daughters of the Golden West,
and William EL Siewert. secretary of the
executive committee of the association.
NO PLEA FOR CHARITY
The first address was by Lieutenant
I* S. Spear of the department, who said
that this was no plea for charity on
the part of the firemen.
It was necessary to explain condi
tions in order that they might be ame
liorated, but the demand'was made on
the broad grounds of Increased effi
ciency. The force at present is inade
quate, and the two platoon system will
mean an increase of 300 per cent effi
ciency, according to Spear.
"This shortage is the most serious
defect and can not be overcome by the
auxiliary fire and high pressure sys
tems, nor yet the motor driven trucks,
none of which can replace the neces
sary men at the nozzle. It concerns
all of you personally and should send
every one of you out to work for
amendment 5," said Spear.
Continuing, he said. 'I ask you as
citizens to vote for yourselves on De
cember Iβ and for those women who
are deprived of the companionship of
the breadwinner of the family."
Dr. J. M. Toner, for a year and a half
Burgeon of the department, said that he
knew the men and their families in
timately in their homes and he was
glad to speak strongly in behalf of
the measure. The firemen are, he said,
merely asking what the tradespeople
had ten years ago, a 12 hour day. They
are not demanding the 8 hour day even,
■which goes to all other employes. The
only argument which he heard against
the amendment was that of increased
expense. To counteract this will be
increased efficiency which will in turn
mean reduction of fire rates and that
will be sufficient to nullify any increase
Miss Ai.na F. Lacey, past grand presi
dent o* the N. D. G. W., said that she
spoke entirely from the woman's stand
point, but that she would urge giving
now what would be a neces
sity within five years as the city grew.
She advised the women to go out and
talk to any organization to which they
belonged, Native Daughters to their
parlors, working women to their
unions and clubwomen to their clubs,
explaining: the measure and what it
meant and asking votes for it.
DOCTOR IS INTERESTING
Dr. T. L. Mahoney spoke in an amus
ing vein, driving his arguments home
with hearty laughter. The meeting
there was simply a campaign for edu
cation, he said, as they were among
friends, and ho gave some points as to
how to meet the public. It must be re
membered first of all that the entire
amount of tax money devoted to the
payment of the firemen would be spent
here in San Francisco and would be of
benefit to the tradespeople and* busi
nese men of the city. The increase of
taxation would be only 70 cents on
every thousand dollars, and he did not
believe that there were enough people
who had many thousands to worry over
t<> prevent the passage of the amend
ment. The reduction of insurance rates
would he greater than that, anyway.
The pay of a fireman is merely a
living wage in these days and for it
w« we sending men to live the rest of
their days in a stable. Complaints of
the erection of stables in residencp
districts are made frequently, but what
about making men live 24 hours a day
Mrs. F.dward Kaiser and Mr*. Mary
T. Gamage were the last two speakers.
the former briefly, urging her hearers
to a vigorous campaign and the lat

ring her audience to frequent and
hearty applause. As an ardent cam
paigner for suffrage, Mrs. tJamage lias
li.-d much experience and she declared
that hard work for the cause will sure
ly bring the public to a recognition of
the absolute justice of the demand.
"Make your work a Thanksgiving
service," she said, "and it will bring
you the merriest Christmas you can
know when it passes."

Institutions for Care of Small
Children and Little Babies
Confused by Public
OAKLAND, Nov. 18.—Some confusion
has arisen in the minds of people on
this side of the bay because of the
simultaneous promotion of a children's
hospital and a babies' hospital, both
for somewhat similar needs of the
community and being supported
by a large number of prominent society
women. The California Congress of
Mothers, which convened in this city
last week, discussed the situation and
its executive committee forwarded a
letter to each organization, suggesting
that they consolidate. The delegates
to the congress apparently looked
upon the two propositions as rival en
terprises and believed that the work
of both could be easily done by one.
The letter suggesting consolidation has
not yet been productive of results.
, The children's hospital will be also
a maternity hospital and will take chil
dren of a widely varying age. The
babies' hospital will be confined to
children of 5 years and under, and will
have no restrictions on race or creed.
It will be a philanthropic arrange
ment by which tlvose able to pay
very little or nothing at all will be
enabled to obtain the best of medical
attention for their children.
Statements from the president of the
board of managers of each hospital as
sociation today were to the effect that
each considered the plan of the other
an excellent one for the community.
Both said, however, that they did not
believe a consolidation practicable be
cause of the difference in the work.
The childreres hospital has plans un-
way for the presentation of "Jappy
land-.' - an oriental extravaganza, at the
Macdonough theater Dec. 13 nd 14.
More than 400 society girls and matrons
from Oakland, Alameda and Berkeley
will appear in the east.
Two affairs have been planned for
this week for the babies' hospital and
it is expected that the returns will
swell the fund considerably. The first
is Thursday evening when the dra
matic section of the Claremont club will

OIL SAND STRUCK
Second Find Follows Reported
Discovery in the Semi=
ISpecial Dispatch to The Call]
BAKERSFIELD, Nov. IS.—Added in
terest was given the reported discov
ery of oil in the semitroplc district
northwest of here today by news of
an oil sand strike in the Harry Rambo
well on section 6, 27-23, not far from
section 11, where Dr. Llscomb and asso
ciates made the first strike last week.
Five feet of oil sand was struck by
Rambo at 775 feet depth. The oil comes
up in globules and spreads out over
the water as it is poured from the
baler. The oil Is said to be of better
than 30 gravity.
Excitement continues over'the Lis-
strike, but its full extent will
not be known until Wednesday, when
the well will be tested. The semi
tropic field, if brought In, will add sev
eral hundred square miles to Kern
county's oil belt.
The Lakeview gusher on section
25-12-24 is gushing tonight, but the
product is the golden oil that made
a half dozen men independently rich,
hut an emulsified product, mostly mud
and sand, with prac/tically no oil. It
is propelled from the hole nearly 2,300
feet deep by a tremendous gas pres
sure. The gusher has been dormant
for 14 months, having made 10,000,000
barrels of marketable oil in its palmy
days. It was not touched for nearly
a year, and then the Union Oil com
pany set workmen to cleaning it out.
Precaution was taken to prevent a
blowout and the workmen reaohed the
old level, 2,250 feet, without trouble.
About 40 feet of oil sand was pierced
when the drill, Sunday, loosed a strat
um overlying a gas pocket and the
blowout is the result. Should the
product be sufficient the well will be
utilized as a gas well, but the owners
are disappointed in not bringing in an

Raphael Weill at the Bohemian club
fist night to celebrate with a dinner
the victory of Woodrow Wilson and to
neet J. o. Davis, chairman of the dem
ocratic state central committee.
I>emocrate prominent in the affairs
>f t!ie party, both in San Francisco and
the state at large were representeq,
nearly 40 mon, from James D. Phelan,
Edward Robesort Taylor, Gavin McNab
and Jeremiah Lynch, to State Senator
John B. Sanford of Ukiah and Senator
T. W. H. Shanahan of Shasta being
seated at the table.
("mplementing their host, Raphael
Weill, as the most constant democrat
of them all, the speakers recounted the
campaign, tinging their remarks with
tribute.to William Jennings Bryan, and
finally turned to prophecy of a united
democracy under Woodrow Wilson.
WILSON' PORTRAIT EXHIBITED
A large oval table was set in the red
room of the Bohemian club, and was
banked high with red and yellow chrys
anthemums, making the center of the
room seem* a California flower bed.
American flags were hung on the walls,
while against the east wall was placed
a large crayon portrait of Woodrow
Wilson, the work of Fred Tates. a
friend of WeilTs and a member of the
club. This picture was hung against
a large American flag nearly covering
that side of the room.
Brief reference was made to either
the republican or the progressive party,
a few chance shots only being directed
at them. Woodrow Wilson and the
party occupied them almost exclusive
ly, in the spirit of congratulation after
the victory and before the time for
getting down to definite business.
TRIBUTE TO J. O. DAYIS
Weill made his introductory speech
one of tribute to J. O. Davis, who, he
said, had made the campaign one of
dignity of fairness, to which the close
ness of the fight in California was
largely due. He then introduced fo.rmer
Mayor E. R. Taylor as the toastmaster
of the evening. '
Taylor proposed toa&ts to Wilson and
Marshall, which were drunk standing
and then voiced his idea of the prin
ciple of the new united democratic
party "Equal rights for all and special
privilege for none."
As the guest of honor of the even
ing. Davis described Weill as "that
sort of a democrat who would be will
ing to leave his business and go out to
work for the party. This he did."
The definition of progressive democ
racy was taken up by Davis, who said
that he believed Doctor Taylor's defi
nition of the principle of the party
would cover the thought.
"The sight of the red flag paraded
on the street ought to cause us to stop
and think, ,, he said. "What we need
to solve this problem is to get back to j
the principles of our fathers, the pion
eers who made the country what it Iβ
today. It is fortunate at this time that
we have in Woodrow Wilson a man
from that stock who will help us to
carry out the heritage of our father's
"Bryan's services to the party have
been so great that we can well afford
to honor him on an occasion like this,"
said Phelan in beginning his talk. 'The
people went to Bryan and his prin
ciples to save the delicate situation at
the opening of the campaign."
After outlining the history and prin
ciples of the party he said, "We are
coming back to the principles of pure
democracy as expressed by the initia
tive and the referendum. The people
who march in the streets with their red
flags are misguided and don't know
just what is wrong. The return to
pure democracy is the only cure for the
ills that beset us."
"BOURBON PALATE DRY"
Jeremiah Lynch brought smiles to
the faces of those present with his
statement that "the democratic palate
is dry. and we need all the federal
offices from Maine to California to sat
isfy this. We are thankful to the re
publicans who aided us, and they will
have the satisfaction of having voted
right for once. In return we will let
them look on for four years." Lynch
also referred to past democratic his
tory under Cleveland, and finished with
a tribute to Weill, saying that much of
the united democracy was due to him.
William Denman declared-that he did
not believe Wilson would unite the
party, as he thought congress would
split. "The income tax. the question of
state rights versus centralization and
the tariff will be instances," he sain. j
"Wilson will need our votes more two
years from now than he did in the cam
paign that is closed.
"Raphael Weill has stood for every
thing decent in California, and I think
of him as a man with a backbone, but
a soft heart. He is a democrat who
came here a French gentleman and
showed many of us how to be an Amer
ican citizen. '*
Supervisor George Gallagher was in
troduced as one of the younger demo
crats. He expressed hope for the dem
ocratic party. Sidney Van Wyck fol
lowed, saying that he did not agree
that the party must hark back to the
past for its success, as the hope lay in
the future. Senator .T. B. Sanford of
Ukiah prophesied democratic success in
congress and the legislature.

a year, leaving a net gain of $9 or $4.50

Miss Ellen Frances Ord, Mem

Another girl popular in San Francieco
society has renounced the chiffon of the

Miss Ellen Frances Ord, daughter of
Captain and Mrs. Edward O. C. Ord,
and member of a family prominent in
army circles in the United States, has
entered upon a novitiate in the convent
of the Sacred Heart in Jackson street.
Her family has been reluctant to have
her choose the sacred vocation, but the
young woman's mind was made up and
she entered the convent halls.
The mother would not admit her
daughter had taken the almost irrevoc
able step of entering a religious com
munity, but her friends have known
for some time that Miss Ord's tenden
cies were all toward religion. She en
tered San Francisco society last season
in an informal way and has been a
student at the University of California.
The family lives in Berkeley.
Miss Ord is 21 years old and a charm
ing, beautiful girl. Had she wished to
enter fully into social life she would
have been taken up enthusiastically by
the army set. Her father is a retired
captain and her grandfather, • General
Ord, was commandant at the Presidio
in 1860 and a distinguished officer.
Mrs. Mason, formerly Miss Lucy
Ord, widow of Lieutenant Mason,
U. S. A., and Mrs. Keith Gregory, wife
of Lieutenant Keith Gregory, now sta
tioned at the Presidio, are relatives,
and the family connections include trie
Thompson and Huies families.
At the University of California Miss
Ord was prominent in the work of the
Newman club, the organization of
Catholic students. She has been out
of college for some time on a leave of
absence due to illness, her mother said.
