'MACHINE' IS IN
Mrs. J. W. Orr Is Looked
Upon as Certain Choice
for President of the
Riverside Strong Favorite in
Race for Next Year's
(S»«-UJ r>l"=r*tch to The Cain
| rr;! - sv ". April 29—Political qui.-t
has been established today-through
the swift and sure action of the "ma-,
c nine.*- which operates quite v readily
*' the twelfth annual' convention of
*"• California State Federation of
"omen's Clubs as it does at any other
gathering one could mention. . Al
"-""ugh the deliberations of the nomi
nating committee are supposedly
shrouded in deepest mystery, until to
morrow- morning, when Its report
rotnea in. it Is known beyond perad
venture that Mrs. J. W. Orr of San
Francisco will be named to succeed to
n second term as state president. £
There have been doubts. The south
ern district women have had the name
of Mrs. Ella Westland well to the fore
or that office and, had they been able
to obtain the co-operation of their
listers of the Los Angeles district, it
would la". been a pretty fight.
LOYAI. TO MRS. OUT!
The Los Angeles women, decided thai
they would be loyal to 'Mrs. Orr for
a second term, although if another
woman from the north had been put
up they would have swung their as
sistance to Mrs. Weatland. "it is whis
pered that the southern district women
have been pacified by the promise that
next year the plum will be theirs and
Mrs. Westland will be the tenth Cali
fornia state president.
As a further incentive to amiability
lost now it i« rumored that a strong ■
battle is to be made to obtain, the
state convention next year for River-I
side. To that end the Los Angeles
women are pledged to work, accord- ■
ing to the passing word, and a promi- I
nent hotel man of Riverside arrived
yesterday from 'lie south to do his
best to get it in 'he southern city.
The only opposition to this, thus far,
comes from Santa Cruz, which has
already put in a bid for the gather
ing. The invitations are given on the
afternoon of the last day and. by that
time, the "machine" may have Induced
Santa Cruz to withdraw.
According to rumor, the entire
ticket will be re-elected, save Mrs. A. j
A. Goddard of Sacramento, who de- j
clines denomination and who will be j
succeeded '■<• Mrs. Emily Hoppin of
Yolo, aud Mrs. Cora E. Jones of Oak
land, who is ineligible for, another j
term as auditor, and whose place prob
ably will be filled 'by Mrs. Fisher j
Clarke of Stockton.-
THERE WERE HINTS OF TEARS
The other officers will as follows, it
is expected: " *-;' . , ': #*| £*£
Vice, president at large, AJrs. Qsltjn
Hartwell,'Pasadena: recording secre
tary. Mrs. B. D. Knight. San Francisco;
corresponding secretary. Miss Jessica
Lee Briggs, San Francisco; treasurer,
Mrs. Henry E. de Nyse' Riverside; audi
tor. Mrs. T. J. Minor, Bakersfleld, and
general federation secretary, Mrs. R.
J. "Waters, Los Angeles.
Hints of tears, with the accompani
ment of quivering chins, broken voices,
flashing eyes, flushing cheeks and al
most a little; bit of evidence of tem
pestuous tempers" marked the progress
of the discussion of the redisricting
plans at the president's council this
morning. Parting with their children
was as nothing compared with the loss
of favorite clubs to other state sub
divisions, according to. some of the
ardent district officers.
The scheme of grouping the counties
of the state Into nine districts instead
of six. as is now done, was submitted
by a committee of clubwomen, headed
by Mrs. Henry de Nyse of Riverside.
This council this morning was held
merely for the purpose of discission,
a id Mrs. Orr asked for expressions of
opinion as to the plan.
After a moment's silence, it seemed
as if the proposed arrangement -had
not a backer in the world, for half a
dozen women tried to tell at once just
wherein it was wrong. First and fore
most in this antl-redistrlctlng upris
ing were the women of the northern
district. They have at present 20
counties in their group.
By the new scheme they would give
up Yolo and Inyo counties and be
named* the Sacramento district. . No one
minds' the new name, and apparently
Inyo could be dispensed with, but Yolo
was the cause of all the near tears..
Loss of a Shakespeare club, second old
test in the state, of a Culture, club of
/desirable attributes, and of the next
'meeting place of the district convention,
were mentioned tragically.. Among
those objecting most strenuously to the
plan were Mrs. George McCoy and Mrs.
B. F. Walton, who are among the most
prominent women of that section.
Mrs. John C. Lynch and Mrs. Annie
Little Barry of the Alameda. district
said that they believed the movement
was premature,and should be discussed
for about a year to get the women ac
customed to the ld£a. Mrs. Emily Hop
pin. who comes from the well beloved
Yolo, liked the scheme of eventual re
districting, but she believed it had bet*
tei»be considered a while longer. -
At last Mrs. Charles C. Falk of
Eureka * said* that she believed perhaps
she was queer, but she liked the plan
of redist rioting because it gave Eureka
•i chance to be on the map. as it were,
if they had a district of"their own.
Then came others quickly to her
standard, one Of the most enthusiastic
being Mrs. Ella Westlsnd, who for two ;
years has been president of, the south- I
crn district. She had felt bitterly
toward it when- It was first suggested, ;
but had become completely converted
and was even, willing "to part with
some other counties, although she
loved, them all. * She mildly reproved
the northern, district women for their
objection rto giving up Yolo, saying
that such schemes for , self-pro.- :
tion were selfish and the i good" of the
whole state must be considered. ''•*'•
FAVORS REDISTRICTINt;-) jgggjW
Mrs. Russell Judson. former state
president.'-.spoke , heartily '" .favor of
redisricting, saying "that-, to the state
officer who .had? the wider outlook, its
advantages were apparent.
"Reorganization.of committees, it .was
expected. 5 would have caused ■ discus
sion of well developed proportions, hut
that! passed \ off- smoothly and without
xrtpf.h interest being, manifested.
Whe end of the fiscal ; year would
seem-a simple enough matter, bet it
provoked . some remarks of a. biting
character from the,present;state treas
urer and Ithe -past; holder.of; that office.
Mrs,'.Henry*de Nys. . who is now the
keeper of the i moneys, wanted the* end
of ihe fiscal, year, changed from "April
1 to .lily 1." so that sheVmay have
ail of her bills in ,and -everything, in
condition for .her successor' with the

beginning: of the new club year in
Mrs. Emily Hoppin took occasion to
remark that, having held, the office of
state treasurer herself, she knew that
there was no necessity in having state
bills not paid and lapping over after
the. first of April, if the work was
kept up. *
Mrs. de Nyse Inquired, In a patient
tone of voice, how* the year; could be
considered closed .with the month of
March., when the annual convention.
With its expenses, came at the end of
April.. .It meant simply, she said, that
the bills went over to the following
year and prevented any estimate being
formed as to the careful or extrava
gant habits of any one president, '.:'-:
There was also discussion concerning
nominations., from the floor, it being
made | ariajiatino- one was to be muz-,
zled or prevented from so doing, even
should the proposed j amendment pass
when it. with the other subjects of the
council discussion, came up Friday.- -
Printed matter sent to clubs from
state chairmen was talked' about at
some length and the chairmen got quite
flushed ami annoyed, when some dozen
or more clubwomen got tip".and de
clared that these' printed * communica
tions were too -long and were''essays
In form .rather .than the- brief .concrete
statements'of;■-facts, to :r be most de
