MANY VISIT THE EXHIBITION
President Pyster Delivers Annual
Address and Also Suggests
Delegates to the state convention of
the National Association of Stationary
engineers held their first business ses
sion in the red room of the A.ngelus
hotel yesterday morning, with M, Py«
ter, state president, In the chair. The
morning was devoted to organization,
the reports of committees and to tho
president's address, the most Impor
tant matter to come up being a com
mittee report on the proposed state
license law, this subject being made a
special order of business for tomorrow
t,,h.. .. delegates and their families
will enjoy an outing, the official pro
gram calling for a trip over tho balloon
route, with stops at all of the beach
cities, and a visit to the plant of the
Pacific Light and Power company. To
night theater parties at the various
playhouses will provide entertainment.
Tomorrow the delegates will thresh
out the license law matter, and will de
cide just what measure the association
will ask the legislature to pass. The
law will provide for the appointment
by the governor of a state examining
board, and for a license fee, probably
of $5 a year In the first Instance and $1!
yearly for renewals. It probably will
Include within Its provisions all en
gineers, excepting, marine and locomo
tive engineers, though an exception Is
likely to bo made In the case of owners
of threshing machines who may wish
to operate them themselves.
I.ICKNSB TO .WORK
If the proposed law Is passed by the
legislature, a public register will be
kept of all licensed engineers, and no
man not licensed will be permitted to
■work. The law was drawn by a com
mittee made up of one member from
each of the local associations, of which
there are two in San Francisco and
one each in Los Angeles, San Jose,
Santa Barbara, Fresno and Stockton.
It seems to be regarded with general
favor, though the provision covering
apprentices may be amended.
Both Santa Barbara and San Fran
cisco, where the convention was held
last year, are aspirants for the 1911
gathering, with the chances favoring
the selection of the Bay City. The
choice will be made Friday, when the
convention also will elect state ofllcers.
No contests of Importance are expect
ed. 11. W. Noethig of San Freneleco '
probably will be chosen president; W.
T. W. Curl of Lob Angeles, secretary,
and Charles Knights of San Francisco,
treasurer. It is generally conceded that
the vice presidency will go to a Los
Angeles man—perhaps John Topham.
\ CLOSING BANQUET
The convention will come to a close
with a banquet in the Hamburger cafe
Saturday evening, at which Fred J.
Fischer will officiate as toastmaster,
addresses being programed by William
Mulholland, chief engineer of the Ow
ens river aqueduct; H. D. Saville of
San Francisco; James G. ■Warren, Los
Angeles; W. P. Butcher, city attorney
of Santa Barbara; A. B. Cass, presi
dent of the Home Telephone company;
B F. Pearson, superintendent of the
Southern California Edison company;
John, Traynor, San Francisco; J. N.
Pyster, John Tophnm and W. E. Cham
berlain, the last named representing
the Hamburger company.
In his annual address yesterday Pres
ident Pyster recommended that the ad
ucatlonal committee of the state asso
ciation hereafter consist of one mem
ber from each of the local associations,
the work to be carried on under each
member's personal supervision in his
own district. He recommended the
adoption by the association of a state
license law, for submission to the legis
lature, and urged that special consid
eration be given to the standardizing
of machinery, to save trouble in case
The exhibit in the Hamburger build
ing was well patronized yesterday, sev

floors in the morning, afternoon and
evening Band concerts are given there

MACHINE'S 'LOGICAL' MAN
FOR TOGA IS LAWLER
Prominent Republican Admits
Flint May Be Called on to
Run for Governor
The news of the plan of the California
Republican machine to adjust its present
gubernatorial controversy by agreeing on a
fifth candidate—a dark horse In the guise of
Motley H. Flint, former postmaster of Los
Angela*, and to put Oscar Lawler Into the
race U the machine candidate for the United
States senate, caused no little comment In
Los Angeles yesterday, and was further con
firmed by the admissions of a number of
prominent Republican, who unhesitatingly
stated that Lawler had been considered the
"logical oandldate for the senate for some
time," but who refused as yet to commit
themselves regarding the five-cornered guber
natorial light until the word has been of
ficially pasHeJ out from the "push" head
quarters In San Franclsc.
While no statements would be made for
publication by any of the Los Angeles ma
chine leaders yesterday, It was learned that
Oscar 1-awler undoubtedly Is the choice of
the national machine leaders, and that t»e
word tv put him up as the successor of
Senator Frank Flint came direct from Wash
ington. Hut this word was sent out before
Mr. Lawler came Into hla recent unsavory
notoriety through having dictated the presi
dents letter exonerating Balllnger.
A number of conservative machine Repub
llcnns In Los Angeles, when Interviewed yes
terday, unhesitatingly expressed th# opinion
that "sentiments In Lob Angeles have
changed so radically since the Lawler-Taft
episode that It Is feared Mr. Lawler Is no
longer the logical candidate for the toga."
li. publicans are asking themselves If this
Taft-Lawler episode will frustrate their latest
solution of the all-perplexing senatorial
problem. If It does, the Republican leaders
admit It will Indirectly have a formidable
bearing «O <ho equully vexing gubernatorial
muddle. And, also, the machine Is wonder-
Ing what the "word" from Washington will
be when Roosuvelt returns.
Meanwhile, Wanton. Curry, Ellery, Ander-
Bon and Johnson are waging a strenuous fight
for the gubernatorial nomination, with the
proßpects decidedly In favor of Johnson, and
only by getting together on one good candi
date, to oppose Johnson, can the machine hope
to keep Johnson and his Lincoln-Roosevelt
leaguo mates from getting the nominations.
WOMAN MUST STAY IN JAIL
An effort to free Anna Mallery, who la
■arvtng a sixty-day sentence. In tho city Jail
for oonductlni a disorderly houso, by a writ
of habeas oorpui In Judge Wilbur's court yes-
terday, was unsuccessful, tho court refusing

arguments on the writ June S w«a the date
