Mourning the loss of a diamond stick
pin, which he values at $100, R. D. Mc-
Gee, a Riverside rancher, visited cen

tour of the downtown saloon district
Saturday night.

Health Officer Wants Board of
Public Works to Change
Dr. L. M. Powers, city health officer,
is endeavoring to have the board of
public works agree to a restitution of
the "comeback" clause of the old
garbage ordinance, but the board fears
the effect on the present garbage sit
uation if a change is made. "Come
backs" are being served with regular
ity In nearly all restaurants and even
In some of the highest class, and It is
almost Impossible to detect them at It,
according to Dr. Powers.
Under the former ordinance every
thing taken from the table after It had
been served to a patron had to go Into
the garbage can. There were some ex
ceptions to this, such as whole slices
of bread, eggs in the shell, unbroken
baked potatoes and a few other things
that the ordinance permitted to be
served again.
But there was not so much complaint
against this regulation because the res
taurant men sold their garbage to hog
raisers and these "come-backs"
brought a revenue as hog feed.
But when the garbage contract was
awarded to Charles Alexander the or
dinance required that all this garbage
that had previously brougHt a revenue
be turned over to the regular garbage
contractor. The restaurant men took
the matter Into the courts and were
given a decision that these "come
backs," while unfit for human food,
still were good for animal food and
constituted property of value.
In order that Alexander could get
any of this garbage at all th* board
of public works asked the council to
amend the ordinance so as to, exclude
these "comebacks" from the garbage
can, and now Dr. Powers says the res
taurants have a specially clean can
that they place these "comebacks" In
until they are wanted for the next
patron. While In this clean can they
are ostensibly being held for the hog
feeders and the restaurant Inspectors
are so advised when they poke their
noses into the "comeback" can, but
when the Inspector has turned his
back they are promptly taken out and
placed on the table in front of some
hungry patron. -■;. -,".(

Roy Clements Claims Miss Neva
Marie West as His
The culmination of a romance came
yesterday afternoon when Roy Clem
ents of Chicago and Miss Neva Marie
West of San Francisco were united In
marriage by the Rev. Baker P. Lee of
Christ Episcopal church. The cere
mony was performed beneath a flower
laden arched canopy of gold In one of
the irtezzanlne parlors of Hotel Alex
andria, and was witnessed only by the
members of the wedding party, Dr. J.
N. West, father of the bride, who gave
her away; Mrs. Frank Freeman, sister
of the bride, who acted as matron of
honor, and Shirley Olympius, a life
long friend of the groom, who acted as
best man. At 6:30 o'clock following
the ceremony dinner was served in one
of the hotel's private dining rooms.
The bride wore a simple gown of
white mousseline de sole over white
silk and a lingerie hat, and carried a
shower bouquet. of lilies of the valley.
Mrs. Freeman was gowned in purple
silk. The only ornament worn by the
bride was a diamond and pearl sun
burst, which was worn by the bride's
mother, now deceased, when she and
Dr. West were united In marriage.
Bride and bridegroom are well known
members of the dramatic profession,
and It was through their association
on the stage as leading man and lead
ing woman that their romance had Its
inception. Mr. Clements and his wife
met some time ago while playing in
the same company. While Mr. Clem
ents was passing his vacation in Los
Angeles he was impressed Into service
by the management of the Grand opera
house. Shortly after Mr. Clements as
sumed the leading roles with the Gir
ton stock company Miss West Joined
the company as leading woman. The
old affection soon ripened Into an en
gagement which was quickly followed
by the marriage yesterday". Miss West
closed her Los Angeles season Saturday
night; Mr. Clements several weeks ago.
They will leave today for San Fran
cisco, where they will remain for a
short time before going to New York,
where they have been engaged to pro
duce a playlet In vaudeville.

ecutive and Institute was held at New
port Beach July 18. Mrs. Viola Nor
man, county president, presided. Mrs.
Elizabeth Mills of Santa Ana con
ducted a department drill, In which

Miss Viola Hill gave a very Interesting

the misery of families caused by drink.
Mrs. Anna Hill gave some statistics
on the spread of prohibition. Mrs.
Shatto of Tustin read an excellent pa
per on "What the W. C. T. U. Has
Done to Spread Prohibition." Mrs. W.
B. Tedford presented the "Responsibil
ity of the City for its Youth." Mrs.
J. A. Garrison of Garden Grove read a
paper on "Our Greatest Need," of
which the following Is a portion:
"The Woman's Christian Temper
ance union is an organized army of the
mothers of the country who have found
it necessary to combine in older to
protect themeolves and resist the en
croachments of a powerful enemy that
is destroying their homes and wreck
ing the lives of their sons and daugh
ters. They have entered into a warfare
with a skillful, well trained, relentless
foe having as a means of defense the
powerful allies of law, great political
parties and almost unlimited wealth.
It has men's appetites and passions,
their lust of power and greed of gain
all marshalled for the protection of
King Alcohol.
"Yet in the face of all this array of
tremendous wealth and power the wo
men of the nation have combined, and
the ranks are rapidly increasing, for
their own safety and the protection of
their loved ones, and entering into the
conflict with no material weapons, but
armed with a determination born of
long years of silent martyrdom and
knowing the angels of right and Jus
tice walk beside them.
"For more than thirty-six years
these women have been engaged in*
this unequal warfare. They have la
bored unceasingly, educating the chil
dren along the lines mapped out by
far-seeing leaders, creating public sen
timent through the distribution of tem
perance and reform literature, writing
articles for magazines and newspapers,
holding evangelistic meetings, lecturing
and co-operating with teachers in the
public schools and with ministers of
the many denominations represented
in its membership and those engaged
in humanitarian work wherever found.
Legislatures have been appealed to
and petitions offered for the enact
ment of better laws and the repeal of
bad ones. In many Instances these
means have been productive of good
results, but in no manner commensu
rate with the vast amount of energy
expended, the tireless efforts, conse
crated intelligence, patience and perse
verance, devotion, self-denial and even
the humiliation and persecution of
these brave women. '•
The one weapon most needed, and
still withheld, the one that women
must yield before they can ever hope
to win in this unequal fight is THEIR
They must be the peers of men be
fore the law, with equal rights and
privileges, before they can secure the
protection of their homes and children
so sorely needed. No body of men,
either political, religious or education
al, has ever worked and planned for
the advancement and greater liberties
and larger opportunities of women. On
the contrary, they have retarded and
opposed them. Whatever women have
gained In the line of higher education,
-broader opportunity and extended
fields of usefulness they have struggled
hard to obtain. They knocked at the
doors of colleges and the higher Insti
tutions of learning, theological, medi
cal and law schools, with an lnslstance
that would not down. Every step of
1 i 1 i I ■—ii iilJHti niMM Ml J-'aUvm. a —«.;•_*..
advance has been contested, but their
courage and determination have over
come apparently insurmountable ob
stacles until the vantage ground they
now occupy has been gained.
When woman comes into her own
the white dove of peace will perch
upon the banners of the world Instead
of birds of prey. No longer will moth
ers go down to the gates of death to
bring forth sons to be slain in battle
to satisfy the lust of power of kings,
nor to give birth to daughters to suf
fer the crudest of all martyrdom to
satisfy the lusts of men who have
covered with the mantle of law their
awful crime.
Under the reign of mother love babes
will not be taken from the cradle and
placed in factories where all day their
tiny fingers manipulate some delicate
portion of the complicated machinery
which grinds out still greater wealth
for the already many times millionaire
and at the same time grind out the
lives of three million child slaves in
this land"of the free and the home of
the brave. Senator Beveridge in his
introduction to a book entitled "The
Cry of the Children" tells us "that an
nually there are ushered into our citi
zenship, in consequence of child labor,
250,000 degenerates, and a great per
centage thereof with the right to vote.
What is the result? Reformatories
filled with juvenile offenders; prisons
filled with criminals; insane asylums
crowded; cities polluted with homes of
vice and politics a gamble for the high
est bidder." When the women of the
nation have a voive in making the laws
not only the saloon but its twin sister,
the brothel, will go. Do you mothers
know that 160 families must give up a
daughter apiece every day in the year,
making an awful total of nearly 60,000
girls a year to supply the demands of
men's lust, and that three-fourths of
these poor martyrs come from country
homes? One-half of them are from
Christian homes and had mothers who
endeavored to rear them in innocence
and purity that they might become
model wives and mothers. But their
very innocence and Ignorance of the
great, seething, swirling pits of de
struction that the fathers of other girls
had opened for their youthful feet
made them the easy victims of the glib
tongued procurer, who, with alluring
promises, sometimes of honorable mar
riage, and sometimes of opportunities
for making an easy living, were read
ily believed and accepted. What fol
lowed Is well known. The fresh young
life blasted, the beautiful form pollut
ed with loathsome disease and the
speedy death and potter's field burial
place, for the average life of these un
happy girls Is but five years.
The women who are most insistent
for suffrage are not the women who
are sheltered and cared for in homes of
comfort and luxury and do not realize
the great need of those less fortunate.
It Is the rich, and the working class
who have Joined hands in the struggle
for political liberty. The rich who pay
taxes on vast wealth and are opposed
to taxation without representation, and
the women who are obliged to earn
their own living know that with equal
political power with men their chances
in the labor market would be much
better. Women are now obliged to do
the same work that men do and receive
less pay simply because they are
women, and not because their work Is
Inferior; on the contrary, they are con
sidered more accurate, conscientious,
faithful and dependable than most men,
yet their salaries are less.
Women are criticised for their ex
travagances in dress and tendency to
follow extreme and absurd fashions
which render them more ornamental
than useful members of society. This
is only true of a very few women, and
they are of the Idle class who have no
lofty alms or purposes in life; who
have never had occasion to use their
brains for anything. Their husbands

Commissioner Wellborn and Chief
Galloway Hold Seoret Con
ference at Headquarters
Following a conference between Po
lice Commissioner Wellborn and Chief
of Police Galloway in the letter's office
at central police headquarters for
more than an hour yesterday after
noon, vt-.lons were revived of the police
commission hearing which resulted in
the dismissal recently of C. E. Dixon,
police captain, from the department.
The conference is said to have been
the culmination of an investigation
which has been made into the record
of Police Sergeant David L. Adams,
who, it is rumored, has been asked to
resign. Although the nature of the
charges against the sergeant has not
been made public, it is claimed they
will bear on conduct unbecoming an
officer. ;''_"•.
It Is reported that Sergeant Fred
Cook, who has been up for investiga
te .1, was also a subject of discussion
in the chief's office yesterday after
Among th; persons who are said to
have been questioned concerning the
investigation of Adams are Mrs. Delia
Miller, her mother, Mrs. Fannie Ash,
and a Mrs. Carson. Adams was sum
moned before the chief a week ago
with the greatest secrecy, but he had
no sooner closed the door behind him
than rumors of resignation, charges
and investigation flew about the build
ing. After the conference none of the
participants would speak concerning
the topiJ of discussion. Police Com
missioners Topham, Wellborn, Assist
ant City Prosecutor Sidney Reeve,
who prosecuted Dixon before the com
mission, were present.
It is rumored that a written report
will be made to the commission at its
meeting onight by Chief Galloway con
cerning the charges which were filed
against Police License Inspector Varey
last Monday night. The charges were
referred to the chief by the commis
sion at its last meeting. Varey, it Is
rumored, has boasted that "he was the
relative of a police commlssoner." It
is likely the charges against Adams
and Cook will be taken up at the meet
ing tonight.
