BOHEMIAN CLUB OPENS ITS
DOORS TO FAIR FEMININITY
Eighth Exhibit of Members Work High Qlass
A fiun-colored catalogrue, emblazoned
■with a naughty-visaged owl, proclaims
to the populace that the "Eighth An
nual Exhibtlon of Paintings by the
Artist Members of the Bohemian Club"
is on— beginning last night and lasting
until December 21. ;
Clearly the club inclines to be kind |
to women folk, for It opened its seduc- j
tive doors to femininity last night, giv- (
ing to it the freedom of the club — to j
such as were accompanied by members, j
And as further proof of the club's ten
derness to women the following an
nouncement Is maude: i
"The public (including ladies) will be
admitted to the Jinksroom (only),
■where the exhibition of pictures will be
held, upon presentation of cards issued I
by members, on Saturday, 10, Tuesday, j
December 13, Friday, December 16, and j
Wednesday, December 21, from 2 to 5 j
p. m., with last day closing with an ;
Now, all women love the mysterious—
the vague and unattainable. Therefore j
do they love to wander Into a man's
club. Just because there's a sort of
"forbidden fruit" fantasy about it. It's
out of the ordinary — hence appealing,
and the reason for the* smart crush of
Observation would divide the func
tion into two phases, the artistic and
the social, with the latter rather in
But the pictures — not the crush, the
cupper, the pretty women, the gowns —
are what we were there for. And well
pleased was he •who went about the
jinksroom with his eyes, physical and
mental, alight, for there is a splendid
show of strength and beauty and poet
ry on the walls.
True, Peters, Matthews, McComas
and Welch are missing, but their fel
lows have "made good" as never be
fore — bo eay the artist folk, who real
ly ought to know. Among those whose
pictures and statuary appear are: II.

The tables were burdened with sea

donors hours of tedious toil. This so

one of whom is pledged to devote
twenty minutes of her time each day
in producing some useful article,

Y%n would have rosy cheeks, too, if your liver was

JELUDES THE POLICEMEN
Long-Legged Beast Outf oots
Horses of His Pursuers
and Scares Pedestrians
There was a new "Tale of the Kan
garoo" at the park last night. One
of the Australian natives jumped the
fence of his paddock and successfully
eluded the attempts of two mounted
policemen to capture him. At a late
hour this morning he was still Jump-
A pedestrian on McAllister street,
near Stanyan, about 9 o'clock last
night, was startled by an odd-looking
form sitting serenely on the park wall
at that point, calmly taking In the
The glistening eyes of tha quadru
ped filled him with fear and he left
a trail of dust as he sped for the Park
Mounted Policemen Pidgeon and
Budd started after the escaped curio.
They found him still reclining on his
haunches at the northwest corner of
the park. Carefully they drove their
horses near the animal. Pldgeon
poised his lariat for a moment and
then threw it. The rope sailed square
for Mr. Kangaroo's head, but the wily
Australian, with a great leap, deftly
Jumped through the loop. With huge
bounds he started westward, the po
licemen after him. Like Mark Twain's
coybte, the curio did not seem to over
exert himself, but, after the fashion of
the desert scavenger, easily kept Just
out of reach of his pursuers.
The hunt lasted for two hours; the
kangaroo leading the mounted men a
merry chase up and down hill, around
trees and down embankments. Several
times Pidgeon and Budd attempted to
ensnare the beast, but always he elud
ed the lariat. )
After a long chase the animal seemed
to tire of being pursued and with a
few bounds left his would-be captors
alone In the trees of the park. Up to
a late hour no trace of the kangaroo
could be found.

NOT BE RUSHED
Pressure for Appointments
of tKe Judges for Newly
Created Courts of Appeal
FIELD OF ASPIRANTS
Legislature Must Provide
Means for Payment of Kent
and Salaries of Attaches
The pressure for the Immediate ap
pointment of nine Judges for the new
Appellate Courts Is very strong:, but
there Is gossip to the effect that the
Governor refuses to be rushed. The fact
Is taken Into consideration that the
Legislature must provide means for
the payment of court expenses for the
last half of the present fiscal year, and
for the. succeeding two years. Apart
from the salaries of Judges, money
must be allowed for rent of court
rooms, the employment of clerks, sten
ographers and bailiffs.
The applicants for the favor of the
appointing power are legion. It la the
impression of leading lawyers that the
nine Judges will be taken from this
list of aspirants:
. FIRST DISTRICT.
Republicans — Ex-Judge Edwari Sweeney,
Shasta; Commissioner N. C. Chlpman, Tehama;
Judge Smith. Sierra; T. -I*"-* Carothers and
Judge Mannon, Mendocino; Judge Buckles, So
lano; W. W. Middlecoff. San Joaauln; Judge
Baxhom and Judge Dougherty, Sonoma, and
Judge Cooper, Humboldt.
Democrats — Judge MoLeughlln, Plumas;
Judg« Rust, Amador.
Republicans — Commissioner Ralph C. Har
rison, Judge Carroll Cook and E. Tauzsky. San
Francisco; Judge Henry A. Melvin and Judge
S. P. Hall, Alameda; Qeorgre C. Roes. San
Democrats — Commissioner James A. Cooper,
San Francisco; Judge Clarke, Santa Clara.
Republicans — Victor E. Shaw, San Diego;
Commissioner W. A. Gray, Tulare; Judge Oa
ter. Ban Bernardino: Judge Allen and Judge
York Los Angeles.
Democrats — Commissioner George Smith. J.
A. Anderson and Judge Track, Los Angeles;
Judge Short, Kings.
According to the constitutional
amendment recently adopted the Gov
ernor must appoint one of the Judges
in each of the three districts as the
It is gossip in court circles that Judge
Henry A. Melvin of Alameda and
Judge Edward Sweeney of Shasta are
so highly commended that they will
be appointed. It is said also that the
Governor desires to recognize the pres
ent Court Commissioners and views
with favor the Indorsements in behalf
of Colonel N. P. Chipman.
The forthcoming message to the Leg
islature is now demanding the atten
tion of the Governor, and he may deem
it advisable to defer the appointments
of Judges until means have been pro
vided for the maintenance of tho new
