LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING. MAY 7, 1910. MRS. JOHN W. MITCH ELL—LOWER PICTURE WOULD-BE GOVERNORS TO EAT AND SPEECHIFY Five Candidates Are Expected to Air Their Views Before College Clubs An unusually interesting and novel event has been planned by the Federa tion of College clubs of Southern Cali fornia, which announced yesterday that it has aranged for a big banquet to be held at Hamburger's cafe May 17, at which all of the various candidates for governor in California are to be I ri si lit and make yo-minute speeches. Phil A. Stanton, "regular" Republican candidate for governor, will sit face to face with Secretary of State Curry, his Republican rival for the same honor, where they can look lovingly into each other's eyes and form mutual opinions ■ i . i li other's political chances and qualifications. If the present plans carry, and there seems to be every as surance the various candidates will be pri ent, it will be arranged for Alden Anderson, state bank examiner, who also is a Republican candidate for gov ernor, to sit beside Mr. St inton or Mr. Curry, where he, too, can form con clusions. Neither is Nat Ellery to bo slighted. He, likewise, is to sit conveniently to Brother Anderson—for Mr. Ellery still is in the race for the Re pul li Mti nomination, ami his friends say he will get it. The presence of these four men is especially interesting:, foi they are all considered "machine" Republicans, and are bitterly opposing one another in tin campaign for the Republican nom nation. Last, but not lr-ast, Theodora A. Bell, Democratic candidate for gover nor, Is t'> have a seat at the banquet board, seated at a .safe distance from the Republican phalanx, whi re ho will be expei ted to respond to the various toasts and incidentally to reply t>> the four 30-mlnute speeches to be made by Btanton, Curry, Elilery and Anderson. Similar banquet! have i n given by Federation of College Clubs In pas! year*, but thl.s is the first time. It is said, that such a remarkable array of gubernatorial timber has ever been ar ranged for ono gathering. What the will be can only be surmise I, but it is expected there will be some ln teresting speeches, The situation in which the various rivals will (lnd them selves should no doubt afford much comment, If not genuine amusement.
