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.

OLD GENERAL EXPENSE
FUND WALLOPED AGAIN
$12,000 Taken for Election Fund
and $8000 for Advertising
The already depleted general expense
fund was handed a couple more Jolts
yesterday when the finance committee
transferred $12,000 to the election fund
and $8000 to the advertising fund from
the genera] expense fund. The simple
little fact that there isn't that much
money In the general expense fund to
transfer didn't figure in the case a
minute.
The money will net there in a few
weeks when at the end of the fiscal
year all surplus money from the vari
ous funds i.i turned back into the gen
eral fund,
J. 11. Fountain, chief deputy city
auditor, went to the courthouse yes
terday and made the supervlsore come
through with the 116,000 road fund for
Bast Hollywood that lias been prom
ised for some time but that didn't
materialise until someone went after it.
