EXTRA SESSION
PROBLEM UP TO
CHIEF EXECUTIVE
Governor Says ThatrHe Will
Make Up His Mind
Before Friday
RETURNS TO CAPITAL
Confers With Bankers, At
torney General and
Judge Lawlor
SITUATION IMPROVES
Activity in Stock Market
Indicates Return of
Confidence
Governor Gillett returned to
Sacramento last night after con
ferring with officials of the local
savings banks. Attorney General
Webb and Judge Lawlor. At the
conference with the bankers the
financial situation was discussed,
and at the meeting with Webb
and Lawlor the subject of changes
in the code allowing the courts to
hold sessions on holidays was giv
en consideration.
Before leaving last night Gil
' lett said that he had not yet
reached a decision as to the pro
posed extra session. Friends of
the governor are under the im
pression that he will call the legis
. lature together about the middle
of next week. The only cloud on
the financial situation 3'esterda.y
was the temporary suspension of
the California sarvings bank in
Oakland, but this had been antici
pated, and was without effect on
the local situation.
.Governor Gillett was closeted for a
prolonged period yesterday afternoon
with W. E. Palmer of the Humboldt
savings bank. George Tourny of the
German Savings and Loan society and
R- M. Tobin of the Hibernia Saving!
and Loan society. Palmer, Tourny
and Tobin represented the San Fran
risrr, pavings banks and reviewed the
financial situation- -with the governor
a.r preat length. They urged that an
extra session be called and indicated
changes in the law which they
thought would assist materially Jn re
lieving the situation.
An amendment . which the repre
sentatives of the savings banks urged
was in connection with the deposit of
the state's money with banks at
2 per cent interest. According to the
int^rpretatinn given this law by the
attorney general, only national banks
can avail themselves of this privilege.
In framing the law it was the inten
tion to make it include all banks, and
the savings institutions desire to take
\u25a0advantage of the opportunty thus of
fered. In order to obviate any diffi
culty in the matter it was proposed
by the representatives of the savings
banks that the law be amended in
order to allow state, county and city
treasurers to deposit money in the
savings banks. It was pointed out
that the savings banks were * the
largest tax payers and that the deposit
of tax money in these institutions
•would work to. the benefit of the de
positors, which means the public.
SESSION WOULD BE BRIEF.
In the conferences held yesterday
th« governor expressed the view that
If an extra session were called he de
sired that it be confined to as few
subjects as possible and that it com
plete its work in as short a space of
time as possible. As the three topics
clamoring for .attention the state ex
ecutive named the postponement of the
date on which taxes become delin
quent, the ratification of the San
Francisco charter amendments relat
ing to the deposit of public funds in
the banks and the issuance of 5 per
cent bonds and the change in the code
enabling courts to hold sessions on
holidays.
It was stated that the governor did
not favor . the suggestion that the
other amendments to the San Fran
cisco charter be taken up at this time.
He expressed the view that this would
tend to widen the scope of an extra
fc«>sPion and likely lead to unnecessary
confusion. A suggestion had been
made that the legislature could ratify
the amendments granting an increase
in salary".- to the firemen and police-
men. Bmß
When Gillett reaches Sacramento \u25a0 he
will immediately give his attention to
the mass of correspondence relating to
the proposed extra session which has
accumulated at bis desk in the capitol.
"I have been so busy listening to
.other people's opinions that I have not
f had time to form one of my own," said
the governor last nipht in discussing

Bourne and Andrews Said

Movement
Special by Leased Wire to The Call
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.— An echo
of the story regarding a $5,000,000 con
spiracy to defeat the Roosevelt pol
icies, which obtained its standing last
spring by reason of the fact that it
emanated from the White House, is
being heard in Washington today. Ac
cording to the report, which purports
to come from a reliable person who
says he, attended a recent conference
in Washington between Delegate
"Bull" Andrews of New Mexico, Sen
ator Bourne of Oregon and others,
a plan to use the name of President
Roosevelt in order to get delegates
who will not be for Secretary Taft
in the event that the president declines
a third term, has been mapped out.
Andrews, -who is a'hepchman of Sen
ator Penrose of Pennsylvania, and a
Pennsylvania "carpet bagger- In New
Mexico, where he went during the 'days
of the Quay regjpie, and whose, con
nection . with the Enterprise bank 1
failure In Allegheny, . Pa., a year- algdt
has been exploited, is the man named
as concocting the plan. Bourne N is the
man who offered a prize' for the* best
essay seting forth reasons why Roose
velt shouM be renominated. ["•;. -\
Iji substance .Andrews Is declared,
to have paid that the uncertainty of.
the -position' of the president made it'
necessary for the reactionaries \u25a0 jto
play their, game of politics accordingly.
That the demand for a third ;term for
the president should be taken advan-"
4age ofi by the reactionary element
and the sincere Roosevelt men "beaten
to If"! In getting delegates to the na
tional convention for the president,
care being exercised that these dele
gates shall be under their control if
the president declines.
It was further intimated, It is said,
that in, Ohio if -Senators -.Foraker.;--' and
Dick could be persuaded to "raise the
third term cry against the, 'Taft
movement it would be a good thing. "
