M^ MORGAN IN THE OIL INDUSTRY—NEW YORK FINANCIER AT THE HEAD OF A $20,000,000 COMPANY TO EXPLOIT CALIFORNIA FIELDS. ; jf ** '
BAKERSFIELD, Cal., Sept. 27.— J. Pierpont Morgan Is about to identify himself with the oil business in California. On October 12, or a few days later, surveyors will be put into the field, and will run lines to the ocean from the Sunset, Coaling,
M^. McKittrick, Midway and Kern River fields to determine bwhich route it is most feasible to arnsport oil to tide water. The surveys will run over the coast range at a number of points, and also gi down the San Joapuin valley parallel with the line of the M^
standard. -.-::"V' '-,-■.' '■••*W*> -'"''•■ •• '" -i •--"-.. ■-"--■ -.' ''■ •:•.-•:■ .•■■■;.,- ■'.£.^ ■--■■"; '.''- :'•--•■" ' ■- ..'.'."" - '■' ■ ■'• • '.'■
M^ A company having a capitalization of $5,000,000 has been organized for the construction of lines, pumping stations, storage tanks, and the like. Mr. Morgan and his associates have also formed a separate company, capitalized at $20,000,000, half &A

Colored Person With Guitar Introduces
Advance Agent of Edu
The Y. M. C. A. Is using a rather novel
method of bringing its educational work
before the young men of the city. Each
year before the opening of the night school
a small card or folder has been distribut
ed among the men of the factories and
shops and offices, but the difficulty has
always been to get the men interested
enough to look at the folder. This year
a colored man with a guitar and a sup
ply of songs goes with the educational di
rector to the shops and factories, and aft
er the men have had a laugh at the funny
Bongs they listen to a short talk about
the night school.
The school is to open next Monday
evening with a special opening rally.

COUNCIL DODCES IT
THE CHARTER COMMISSION MUST
AND PLOD ITS WAY ALONE
PLEA FOR ASSISTANCE
MEETS SILENCE IN ASSEMBLY
Aldermen Refuse to Call Special Elec
tion on Advice From Legal Depart
ment, But Commissioners Get Small
Solace and Will Probably Be Alone
in Entreaty to Legislature.
Any responsibility, that may exist
for the failure of the charter commis
sion to give needed relief to the several
city departments in the shape of
amendments to the St. Paul constitu
tion must be shouldered by the com
At the special meeting of the two
council bodies called last night to con
sider the situation the assembly was
dumb to the commission's entreaty for
help, while the board of aldermen half
heartily responded in the passage of a
resolution of condolence and refusal to
call a special election because It was
not sanctioned by the legal depart
The meeting of the board and assem
bly was called at the instance of the
charter commission, which said it de
sired something tangible with which It
might go before the legislature and
seek relief in the shape of a revision of
the enabling act. It also asked for a
decisive opinion from the legal depart
Assembly Is Apathetic.
When the two bodies met the opinion,
the work of Corporation Attorney
Markham, v/as on hand. It was In
substance the same as his former
opinion, yet more brief, and held that
the only possible time when amend
ments could be considered was at a
regular city election. As for a special
election, he held that such would not
be valid for amendments, unless called
for the filling of a vacancy or other
matters recognized by the statutes.
The assembly, which was the first to
meet, received the opinion in dignified
silence and after hearing from Presl-
dent Doran, of the charter commission,
as to the situation, adjourned and or
dered it placed on file. When the
board of aldermen met E. C. Stringer,
of the charter commission, addressed
the members and on his plea a resolu
tion refusing to call a special election
was given passage. He insisted that the
commission was not attempting to un
load any responsibility, but rather to
place itself on a footing that would
permit it to seek the relief needed at
the next session of the legislature.
The resolution will come before the
assembly at its meeting next Thursday,
but there is some doubt of its passage.
Some of the members seem to be under
the impression that the charter com
mission desires to unload its troubles
on the council and they say they will
not vote for it.
No Relief for Two Years.
As matters now stand the city finds
itself in an embarrassing condition.
Should a big flre result and the ciity's
fire apparatus be wiped out of exist
ence or any other calamity that the im
agination can conjure result the city's
hands would be tied. Not a cent of
money over and above the amounts
specified by the present city charter
could be raised and that, as a rule, only
for maintenance. The next city elec
tion is two years distant and no relief
can be had in the meantime.
A year ago an effort was made to
have the commission prepare amend
ments so as to be in readiness for the
late city election, but the commission
refused, desiring to wait until the fall
election in order that changes might
be made to the enabling act. These
changes were made, but they do not
