Campaign Will Be Waged to
Raise $5,000,000 by Local
Instead of Soliciting Gifts of
Money Committee Will Of
fer Shares in Fair
When the report of the committee on
organization of the Panama-Pacific in
ternational exposition is made at the
meeting of the directing committee of
:;o this afternoon all will be in readi
ness for the beginning of the campaign
for finances which is to be waged lo
cally within the next few weeks.
No meeting was held yesterday, as
originally announced, for the plans of
the organization committee were not
quite in Fhape for submission. A reso
lution was passed at the last meeting
favoring the inauguration of the finan
cial campaign without delay and steps
towarcTorfranizing this campaign prob
ably will be taken this afternoon.
The plan tentatively agreed upon by
the directing committee is to place the
campaign for funds in the hands of a
small committee, with a strong man of
the highest business integrity and
executive ability at its head. It is be
lieved that all preliminary steps can
be taken rapidly, and that the appeal
to the San Francisco public for funds
tan be made some time next month.
$5,000,000 STOCK TO DE SOLD
The amount that must be raised in
San Francisco as a basis of carrying
out the exposition plans on a scale
that will make it the equal if not the
superior of any world's fair ever at
tempted is $5,000,000, On the success
of the committee in raising this
amount will depend the outcome of the
appeals to the state and federal gov
ernments for large appropriations.
This is San Francisco's individual
share in the building of an exposition
which it is estimated will cost not less
than ?50.000,000.
To make up the $5,000,000 in San
Francisco Ftock subscriptions to that
amount will be issued. Instead of ap
pealing to tlie public for a free con
tribution of money the stock in the ex
position will be offered for sale, prob- j
ably in fl'j. shares. j
A plan of easy payments also will
be devised, go that the amounts sub
scribed may be paid either annually,
temiannually, monthly or in orie lump
Under this plan subscribers v.ill not
te a>ked to give their money without
l»ossibility of returns, but should the
exposition prove the great success it
should be, even substantial dividends
on the Ftock i\ay be expected at the
conclusion of the fair.
The campaign for stock subscriptions
will t:ikc the form of a canvass of the
city by districts, supplemented with
personal appeals, letters and meetings.
The enthusiasm already displayed
over the exposition project in every
«:uarte!- indicates that the J5.000.C00 can
Itc rais»U without trouble and an ef
fort wili bo made to complete the cam
paign In the briefest possible period.
Whilp these matters have beon oc
cupying the attention of the special
committees for the last wfpk plans for '
the pf r;sKin«-nt organization of every!
Urparunrnt liav* been gradually round
ed into shape. Tliesp will be submitted!
for final consideration within a few I
day*, and upon their adoption the di
recting committee will at once set to
work to subdivide the responsibility
juiionp: subcommittees carefully chosen
from the general ways and means com
mitu-e. which haa a membership of 200.
Among: the indorsements received
yesterday at the exposition headquar
ters was a letter from S. M. Cuthbert
*on. secretary of the Santa C.ara county
chamber of commerce, stating that
re-solutions indorsing the exposition to
the fullest extent and pledging earnest
aid and support were passed by th«
chamber at its annual meeting at Los
Gatos January 21.

Calcuiates .Comet's Orbit \ "••\u25a0'/\u25a0
X CAMBRIDGE, .Mass.,; Jen. 25.—Har
vard observatory announced today that
a inessage'had been received from Kiel,
Germany, in which it was 'stated " that
Professor^ Kobold had completed ' the
computation pf the orbit of the new
comet "and that-- it-showed that the
comet wasnearest the -sun Jnnuary;l7,
when it was 4,000,000 miles away. .Its
orbit is inclined 62 degrees to the plane
of the earth's orbit. February 3 it will
be about one-tenth of the brilliancy
shown January 22. It Is traveling to
ward the east and north in the heavens.
Comet Near Sun
SEATTLE, Jan. 25. — Prof. James E.
Gould of the department" or astronomy
of the University of Washington said
The comet, which was visible to
the naked eye for the first time to
night, is very near the sun, and this
is why It can be seen only for a
short time and only when the sun
is setting-. Last night it was vis
•. ible for about an hour, but it -
should be seen today for half an
hour earlier and half an hour later
than It was seen last evening.
Comets are named by the year
in -which they appear, and the num
ber of their appearance during that
year. This being the third one dis
covered in 1910 it is called "3,
1910." It is not known positively
whether this is a new comet or the
reappearance of an old one, but it
is considered probable that it is a
new one. ..-.
The only naked eye comet for 15
years, until the one last evening,
appeared last year, but was only 10
degrees in length and could not be
seen unless, the observer knew its
exact location. "3. 1910" is not to
be. confused with Halley's comet.
To Modernize Observatory
. WASHINGTON, ; Jan. ,25. — Broadening
the" work of the naval observatory so
as' to permit that .institution to fur
nish to 'the world discoveries "that a
great astronomer using such a plant
would be likely to make" is provided

sentative Dawson of lowa.
The bill, which embodies views ex
pressed by President Taft in his mes
sage to congress,, proposes "to estab

up from scattered appropriations for
the navy, and restricts the superin
tendency of the observatory to "an
astronomer of high professional stand
ing" to be appointed from' civil life
at ?6,000" a year.

his defalcation is still undetermined
and additional shortages are being un
covered, according to an answer filed
yesterday! by I. J. Truman, the treas
urer, to a suit .instituted by Miller for.
the return of a $1,500, bond of the Co
lumbia , banking company. \
Miller : wrote a letter to the trustees
of the association November 14, 1907,
admitting the \u25a0 misappropriation of
funds and promising to make good the
shortage. After a partial investiga
tion, Truman states, it was found that
$i;i17.53\ was missing.- ; Miller repaid
that amount. In order to protect the
association, against loss from any fur
ther defalcations \that might be un
earthed Miller placed the $1,500 bank
bond in the care of the treasurer.
Miller's present demand for the re
turn of the bond is premature, Truman
insists, for the reason that the trustees
are still investigating and believe fur
ther irregularities will be exposed. -

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SANTA ROSA. Jan. 23.— The verdict
of the coroner's jury yesterday after
noon charging Wlllard E. Thomas wit'i
killing the 3 year old daughter of his
wife after he had confessed to the
crime haa not satisfied the offlqers that
the full truth of the matter Is known
and every energy is being put forth in
an effort to ascertain whether or not
the mother was not equally guilty with
her husband.
Thomas is firm in his declaration to
day that Mrs. Thomas stabbed the child
twice with the knife, but failed to kill
the little one. and he then took the
weapon and finished the work. Thomas
Is not a man of any intelligence an<i
shows indications of being easily led.
while his wife is a woman of domineer
ing personality. It is believed by both
the . district attorney and the officers
that she directed the murder of the
child and* Is now attempting to escape
the penalty by placing the blame on
I her husband.
Thomas was a regular attendant at
church and sang in the choir of the
Baptist church Sunday night, from
which be went home to be later taken
Into custody. Mrs. Thomas declares
that he frequently urged her to attend .
church, but that she refused, as sh£-4
"had no use" for the man after he
killed her babe, as she alleges, asatnst
her protests.

Acid Dyspepsia
Nervous People Are Frequent Suf-
ferers From Too Much Hydro-
chloric Acid In the Stomach.
A Trial Package of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablet* Sent Krrr.
''Sour stomach," or acid dyspepsia, is
a form of indigestion in which entirely
too much hydrochloric acid Is secreted
by the stomach. A sour taste in tha
mouth is the most common symptom of.
acid dyspepsia: and the saliva, which
is normally alkaline, is found, when
tested, to be changed to acid, or just
the opposite of what it should be. anil
Is a state of the secretion which causes
rapid and extensive destruction of the
Everything" eaten turns more or les*
'sour in the stomach, but sweets and
acid fruits are far worse in this respect
than other foods. If the eructation <>f
liquids from. the stomach occurs, they
have such an extremely sour taste as-
to set the teeth on edge. \
Hydrochloric acid is an important^,
constituent Jn the gastric juice, but/
when too much of It is secreted, it doe;f
positive harm to the mucous linlnsj of
the stomach: and when acid dyspepsia
is lons ' continued it often sets ur»
chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer, and
other serloua diseases. The premature
loss of all the teeth has been eaus*tl
by acid saliva, which was dependent
upon the excessively acid condition of
the stomach.
besides furnishing pure, aseptic pepsin
to the stomach to dilute the excess *of
hydrochloric acid, and to digest pro-
telds and albuminous foods very thor- .
ousrhly, also contain, bismuth subni-
trate and calcium carbonate, which are
antagonistic to the acid, and therefore
neutralize the effect of th<* excessive
amount of acid in the stomach, and
the continued use of these tablets will
changre the perverted condition of the
secretions to a normal state.
If you are suffering from "hyper-
ehlor-hydria," as physicians term it, or
in other words, acid dyspepsia, and ex- %
