Attache Army Mustered In; Wolfe Wants More Judges; No Trees for Christmas ATTACHE OUTRAGE CONSUMMATED Democrats Join in Adoption by Assembly of the. Re port of Chairman John READY FOR BUSINESS CALL HEADQUARTERS. 1007 STH ST., \u25a0 SACRAMENTO, Jan. 10. — The patron age list of the Assembly is prac tically complete at last. Chairman War ren 11. John of the committee on at taches submitted his final report today with the understanding that Grove L. Johnson has yet to loam the name of one more patriot whom he must provide for. In moving the adoption of the re port Chairman John said that he had about twenty-seven names to add to the rolls, but Chairman John was not counting well today. The actual num ber was thirty-nine. This raised the total number of "personal patronage employes" of the lower house to 314. In the final dragnet were three por ters at 93 a day, nine assistant clerks to committees at $4, two pages at $2.50, three stenographers at $5, six assistant engrossing and enrolling clerks at $5, eight porters at $3 and eight watchmen at $S. Chairman John's report was adopteu, the Fix Democrats shouting '"ayes" as loudly as their Republican colleagues. Now all is in readiness for the law making. Everybody with a pull has been given some light work, and from now on many members will lose no op portunity to conjure with those noble words, 'retrenchment and . reform. " Not a few of the statesmen from the interior counties came here advocating either 56 or 58 as the limit of patron age, but not one of them failed to take his $13. In fact, some of the retrench ers. if gossip can be believed, ran over the limit and had either to curtail or beg Jl or 52 in patronage from col leagues to keep within the amount which they deemed "outrageous." Nothing has been overlooked. Th* House has iteventeen watchmen, whose duty will probubly be to »c* that no one run* nvray with Red Men's Hall. Tea doorkeeper* will fcrrp vallaat guard over four doom. One hundred and four clerks assigned to commissions \u25a0will make an appearance In relays In order not to crovid tbe commKtee members out of their meeting place. Fifteen porters hope to be able to take care of the various rooms, provided tbe Janitor of the ball does bis' usual work. Twenty-seven assistant rncroMlßC and enrolling- clerks will occasionally practice handwriting, and thirty-seven •erareantM st arms promise not to net In one another's way. To relieve tbe monotony and ulve the senslon the nec eraary social tone there will be twenty ncven stenographers and seven poftt mlstrc*«rft. Besides ttirnr nearly sixty other persons will be miscellaneously employed. What all of the attaches will do to fight off ennui is a question, but it has been suggested that they organize a union and limit the hours of labor to an hour a day. However, this is not likely to be adopted. Some of the fa vored children of fortune say that they do not have to work at aIL SEXATU STANDS PAT Caminettl of Amador was the only Senator to voice a protest against the additional barnacles fastened to tfee tide of the g-ondola of patronage float ed down from the tipper House. Cam lnetti is a Democrat, however, and his lone vote of "No" to the extra list of 144 statutory attaches was \u2666without effect. The appointment of all these super numeraries was approved by a resolu tion Introduced by Senator Leavltt of Alameda, who does not belong to tha romantic school of legislation and will probably be arrayed against the man from Amador on most of the measures worth while at the present session. There are now 162 beneficiaries on the list of the Senate, most of whom have already taken oath to pouch their salaries according to law when tha official pay day rolls round. Rev. J.

DISPATCn TO THE CALU CALL HEADQUARTERS. 1007 STH ST., SACRAMENTO. Jan. 10.— The antivacci nationlsts are In Sacramento with a bill prepared by Judge E. M. iJibson of Oakland, which Is to be presented in the Senate by Senator S. It. Rambo of Boulder Creek and in the Assembly by Assemblyman John M. Eshelman of Berkeley. The measure Is against compulsory vaccination, being drafted similarly to the one which. passed both houses at the last session, but was ve toed by Governor Pardee. The anti vaccinationlsts believe that Governor Gillett will not veto the new bill. "Governor Pardee \u25a0was prejudiced in tbe matter because he was a physi cian," said Samuel Taylor, Secretary of the Antivacdnatlon L«eague tonight. "Physician* support vaoclnation be cause it spreads disease and adds to their practice, and in opposing the bill that was passed at the last session Par dee was simply upholding the views of a body of professional men who had helped to elect him. We have the sup port of all the public school principals In the State in our contention that the privilege to attend school should in no manner be dependent upon the vaccina tion of children. We are not striving for the total abolition of vaccination." The officers of the league here are distributing literature to assist them in their propaganda. They have printed correspondence from different parts of the world aijd say that they have \ a much more Influential organization than they had during the last session. , Elbert Hubbard of the Roycrofters is among the writers whom they have in terested in their movement, a recent exposition of his views in 'T"he Phili stine" on vaccination being made at their request. of the pulpiteers now engaging the at tention of the legislators. The daily prayer with which he opens the pro ceedings of the upper House is con stantly becoming more rococo and in teresting. Today he asked providence to be watchful of the Senators and swerve them from "secret and irrelig ious affiliations." Ears pricked up among the Senators at this supplica tion, as many of them openly flaunt the emblems of fraternal organizations while making earthly laws, but most \u25a0of them were not inclined to take um bYage at the request of the chaplain. They simply regarded It as one of his beatific vagaries and are not inclined to believe that he , meant to asperse their affiliations with malice prepense. Rev. Mr. Darling, In fact, is daily be coming more popular in the Senate, even if his ecstacles are at times over frank and positive. Lieutenant Governor Porter announced today that he wished to be en rapport with everybody in the Senate. Ho spoke briefly on the advantage of har mony and when he finished all the Senators made a noise like handclap ping. Senator Mare Anthony of San Fran cisco Introduced a resolution providing that the union label be used on all goods and supplies ordered by the Senate, The resolution was referred to the committee on contingent expenses. The Senate adjourned until 10:30 to morrow morning, but It Is doubtful if a quorum will be present then, or if an other session will be held until Mon day, when committees will be an nounced and the organization will be in shape for real business. ' BELL TAKE.V I.VTO FOLD Tbe most suggestive action agreed on by the Republican majority today was its decision to take Senator C. W. Dell of Pasadena In out of the weL Bell applied for admission to tbe cau cus and it was then decided to freeze him out on the ground that he was a member of the convention that nomi nated B. W. llahn for Senator and was not eligible to run and defeat him: The $2S a day patronage agreed upon by tbe Republicans did not apply to him. and some unkind things were passed around about the representa tions that he was making about economy. It was emphasized to trio majority today, however, that Bell as a hold over Senator would have things to say about the next United States Senatorial candidate and might not be averse to taking programme orders when that time comes. His vote in ttiis way would be a surer asset to the organ ization that the vote of an unknown i man, it was pointed out, and Bell waa eventually given to understand that his fins would be forgiven and that he could have ' canonization. Tbe terms suited him and he joined the majority on the understanding that be was to have no . personal = patronage. He still claims that he Is for economy and is opposed to the $25 per day figure voted for, but tbe main thing after all is that he \u25banow belongs to £ the potential majority.

STEPPACHER STILL HUNTING A JOB Senators Grow Gold Sud denly About Assistant Sec retaryship Promised Him INGRATITUDE SHOWN I SPECIAL DISPATCH TO TItK CA LI- CALL HEADQUARTERS. 1007 STH ST.. SACRAMENTO. Jan. 10. — Since General Stone, _ chairman *of the Republican State committee, has returned to San Francisco .. from the capital, there has been a. noticeable tendency among Republican Senators to pass the buck respecting the responsibility In looking after Jake Steppacher, major domo of the party and erstwhile candi date for chief clerk of the Assembly. Stone induced Jake to withdraw from the contest for the chief Assembly clerkship on representations that he would be made assistant secretary of the Senate. Up to this afternoon there was no suggestion that the Senators were averse to this arrangement. Tonight, however, a single Senator cannot be found to tout Jake's cause, and a noticeable organization move to evade responsibility for the change of heart is apparent. Some very harsh things about the organlzation^are being said by friends of Steppacher, who point out that he has been the real draught horse of the ' preliminaries attending the present session and that it is neither reason able nor just to expect him to kowtow for such an indifferent billet as an assistant secretaryship of the Senate. Jake made the mistake of trusting too implicitly in Stone in the first place, they say, but despite this fact there is no reason why the Senators should simulate such dignity in looking after him now that he needs their attention. Senator Frank Leavitt of Alameda was quite frank this afternoon in ad mitting that Jake's chances of landing a job were problematical and spoke in defense of the organization in discuss ing the matter. "I am willing to intro duce any resolution into the Senate providing for Steppacher's appoint ment," he said, "but It will have to be a resolution concurred in by all the members." , Leavitt did not care to go into the matter further, but it was quite ap parent from this admission that Jake's job would not^be provided for out of the individual patronage of any of the Senators. The Indignation of Jake's friends is quite understandable. The refusal of the Senators to Interest themselves di rectly in his cause shows how cool and calculating the organization is becom ing. .Steppacher declines to discuss/ the matter in any way and deprecates the publicity given it. He cannot bo in duced to say anything against the dis regarding of his claims by the Sen ators or to admit that a lack of grati tude on the part of the organization has put him in an unenviable position. Republicans outside the organization are not so reticent and freely and warmly denounce the unusual and un warranted exhibition of political indif ference. .

"BLACK HAND" MEX SUPPOSED TO HAVE BUJIXED MAX'S BODY Charred Rrmaini of Italian Are Found In Patch of Woods at Gut~ tenberir, X. J. NEW YORK, Jan. 10. — The body of a man, burned beyond recognition with kerosene, was found yesterday In a patch of- woods at Guttenberg, N. J. There is little doubt that he was mur dered and that he was an Italian. . It is supposed he was the victim of the "black hand" society. , -Coroner Schlenn thinks that the man was killed elsewhere and his corpse taken to the spot where It was found and there burned. ' Near the body stood a can holding a little kerosene and a wallet containing some money and a silver watch and chain. A few feet away was the arm of an overcoat and a charred cap and an old vest. The chief of a band of gypsies looking for some strayed horses found the body.

Four years 'ago a similar attempt was made, but failed. Senator Edward I. Wolfe waa then enrolled with the opposition. He is expected to favor the plan now, and will be asked to father the bill.

EXPERIENCE NECESSARY FOR ')' POSITIONS IN CONSULATES WASHINGTON. Jani 10. — One result of the adoption of the rules for the ap pointment of consuls after a technical examination has been to bring forward a number of applications from young college mea. and to discourage men of business experience from attempting to enter the consular service. It is found that a lack of experience In worldly affairs on the part of the young appli cants tends to reduce their usefulness. Hereafter consular clerkships will be given to young men who will be as signed to duty as assistants to con suls and consuls, general at the more important commercial towns, In order that they may acquire the necessary experience.

TO THE CALU CALL HEADQUARTERS, 1007 STH ST.. SACRAMENTO, Jan. 10. — Assemblyman R, H. Jury of San Mateo expects to be denounced as an enemy of Santa Claus. Although ready with his denial, he will not be deterred from introducing an anti-Christmas tree bill early next week. The proposed measure is entitled "An act to prevent the destruction of young forest trees." This looks innocent enough', but n it ever reaches the stat ute books it will knock out the Christ mas, tree industry, for it forbids offer ing for sale any cut tree, -whether it he pine, cedar, cypress, fir. tamarack or spruce, or any of the varieties thereof, when such tree is less than one foot in diameter at the base or less than one foot in diameter when measured three feet or less from the ground." Assemblyman Jury In discussing his bill today said: "I expect to be criticised, but what I ask. is something that should be done if we wish to save the trees on our hills. It will awihllate the Christmas tree Industry, .but it will not prevent the making of Christmas trees from branches. Under the proposed law there would be no restriction on, cutting branches, but the destruction of young trees would be stopped. The penalty to go with the anti-Christmas tree law would be a fine of $500 or six months' imprisonment, or. both." V Assemblyman jury will also father a biW to do away with the expense of hir ing appraisers for estates valued at $1500 or less. He proposes to grant the courts permission to accept the affi davit of administrators as to the value 'fit such estates.
