His Attacks Upon Graft Frose
cutor Have Provoked Lincoln*
Roosevelt Leaders
Prominent Members Contend
That Contra Costa Man Is Cut
of Gubernatorial Race
That an «=>nthusiasti" ally avowed hos
tility to Francis J. Heney and grat
uitous attacks upon th<-> jrraft prose
<utor have put Charles M. Belshaw out
«>f the running as a Limoln-Roosevelt
candidate for jrovornor is the conten
tion of prominent leaguers who arc re
newing the attempt to force former
Mayor William R. Davis of Oakland in
to the «C*.
One of the reasons for the unbend
ing hostility of *=oine of the southern
California leaguers to Belshaw has
come to the surface. Some of the
loaguers who a week «go were trying
to stifle any talk «bout Rf-lshaw"s at
tacks on Heney have tak^n another
tai-k now. They arc permitting the
Kla<l ixiings to go forth and are at
tome pains to see that they go into
the rierht channels.
At no ti>ni» since thf primary election
2apt September has Heney been even a i
gubernatorial possibility. He told me
in November that under no circum-
Ftance? would he be a candidate for I
an elective office. He gave reasons, ;
too. That they were forcibly stated '
may l>e accepted without qualification, i
»c» mm;d to iiomai.
President Chester H. Rowell and the
southern California leaguers had Heney
«lown as their first choice for the J
lt'apri.-f's support for governor. Heney
made it plain to Row*»ll that he would i
rot run and the leaguers accepted his
decision as final.
Presumably Belsliaw did not know
that Heney was out of it. In any event j
he went after the Heney idea with a
sharp stick. He told Lincoln-Roose
velt leaguers and others that if Heney
was nominated for governor he would
lake the stump against him.
H«'iiey according to Belshaw. was an
agitator, a disturber of business and
generally a faise alarm, who was j
hounding a lot of gn«-.<j men. The im- ,
niunity contracts given the super
visors by the graft prosecution worried ;
Belshaw. too.
Some of the leaguers advised him to
put the soft pedal on his anti-Heney
talk. They suggested that while his.
fulminations against Henej' would go ;
great with the captains of industry in I
San Francisco, they would be bad mcd- j
j'ine in the country districts, where
the majority sentiment was with the
graft prose, ution.
Belshaw insisted that he considered
it imperative that the people should be
fully advised of his attitude on that
vital question and for that matter any
other question that might from time to
time appear to be vital. "Nix for
Heney* or words to that general ef
fect, said Belshaw. Also "tell "em I
said so."
At least a portion of Belshaw's
declarations have been taken to heart
by the leaguers. They are telling 'em
lie said so. Indeed the southern Cali
fornia contingent of the league is '
working overt ime telling 'em he paid i
so. Moreover they are exerting every !
energy to insure a big meeting of the
executive committee next Tuesday. Be
hind the desire for a large attendance
is the. belief that a sentiment for Davis
can be developed so strong that the
former mayor <*f Oakland will be com
peJled to go into the race.
Two y»-ars ago Davis had the first
«;'.!! on the gubernatorial indorsement
with men who were at the head of the
L,in< oln-Rousevelt league. A majority
of those men have never changed their
opinion about the desirability of get
ting behind Davis. In southern Cali
fornia there was exhibited a Heney
sentiment strong enough to convince
the Los Angeles leaguers that the spe
cial prosecutor was the man of the
When Heney put himself out of it
the Los Angeles men rejoined the
northern leaguers, who had never wav-
cred from Davis. Davis' first choice
was Hiram W. Johnson of Kan Fran
cisco. When he put liis choice up to
B conference of league bigwigs held
in Oakland a few weeks ago, some of
them hold him that they would be
Rlad to support Johnson if Davis could
j?e.t him to run, but that Davis was
their first choice.
Davis refused even to consider the
proposition. He induced the leaguers
to make a strenuous effort to land
Johnson. .lust how persistent were
the pleas made to Johnson the public
Mrill probably never know. The big
men of the league returned to the at
tack again and again without scoring
«vcn a suggestion of success.
Th*>n came the executive eommfttee
ffneeting last Monday and the straw
;rotes which gave Belshaw an apparent
,Jead over Davis. About two-thirds of
the committeemen were present. On
.an informal ballot Belshaw received
30 votes to Davis' S.
It is explained now that the ballot
was taken only for the purpose of let
ting Mott down easily and that some of
the men who voted for Belshaw did
bo because they believed there was no
\u25a0chance of forcing Davis into the race.
In any event the committee took a
recess for a week and now the word
has gone down the league line that
Davis can be forced into the running
when the committee reassembles Tues
From Oakland comes the word that
former Governor George C. Pardee is
all fussed up over the attacks made
<in Mott. which undoubtedly resulted
in making him a bad third in the ex-.
*»cutive committee's balloting Monday.
The Pardee people insist that the talk
about Mott being the favored candi
date of the Herrin machine was in
spired by Belshaw's friends to advan
tage the Contra Costa man. Bo that
as it may, those stories did seriously
affect Mott's standing as' a possible
candidate witn some of his colleagues
on the executive committee. While it
is unquestionably true that some of
the leaguers scon* personally at the
idea that Mott would throw down the
league for the organization if elected,
5t is equally true that they fear that
the rank and file of the league has
been adversely affected by the "choice
af the organization" stories.
Meanwhile Charles F. Curry's cam
paign Js being pressed as if neither
league nor" organization stood to ex
erclee any determining influence on the
primary ballot verdict. Those persons
who are of the opinion that Curry's

ajrreeably or otherwise surprised if
they were permitted to get a glimpse
at the list of men scattered throughout
the state who are pulling for the sec
retary of state and who by their past
performances have demonstrated that
they know how to pull.
It is whispered by men who are gen
erally conceded to be "in the know"

Nab boomlet. They say that something

that the thumb has been turned down

Robber Is Believed to Belong to
Good Family
Donald Sutherland, 18 years old, of
El Paso. Tex., was arrested for the
many re<ent robberies in Mill valley
by Detective Thomas Ryan yesterday
while he was attempting to dispose of
part of his loot at a second hand store.
Sutherland has been working for R.
C. Ward of Mill valley as a servant
since last June and during that time
many robberies of summer homes that
have been closed for the winter have
been reported.
It is believed that Sutherland comes
from a good family in Texas and that
he came here to complete his educa
tion. He declined to discuss his case
or talk about his family last night at
the cenxral police station.
Sutherland worked for a time for
George A. Billings, who has a summer
home in the valley, but lives during
the winter months in the city. He also
entered the home of Dr. William
White and Roy C. Ward. Silver in his
posseFsion bore the marks " M. L. R.,"
"C. M. H.," "H. 8.," "Arthur," "Foley"
and "Bruce."

Dorothy Everett Married to
Thomas R. Minturn at
Pretty Ceremony
One of the prettiest of the, spring
weddings, celebrated in a setting of
yellow spring flowers, was that of Miss
Dorothy Everett and Thomas Robinson
Minturn, that took place last, evening
at the home of. the bride's parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Edward Everett, in -Pacific
avenue. The ceremony was read in a
floral bower, of jonquils and roses with
Rev. Bradford Leavitt as the officiat
ing: clergyman.
The bride is an attractive blonde and
her gown of white satin and rare lace
was extremely becoming to her fair
type. She wore a wreath of orange
blossoms and. carried a, shower of or
chids and lilies of the valley.' The
maid of honor was her sister,' Miss Mar
garet Everett, who was gowned in yel
low and white satin, since yellow was
the predominating note in the scheme
of decoration. The two little flower
girls, Bettie Dow and -Newell Bull, wore
white and. yellow frocks. Leroy Min
turn acted as best man.
There was an informal reception
after the ceremony and the young- cou
ple left last evening for their honey
moon tour in the southern part of the
state. Mr. and Mrs. Minturn will live
in Fresno, where the family of the
bridegroom, is well known and where
he is engaged in business.

Judge Seawell Orders Le Breton
Not to Release Money of
Bank's Depositors
Delay Again 'Granted Rehabili=
tators of Safe Deposit and
Trust Company
E. J.. le Breton, receiver of the Cal
ifornia safe deposit and trust company,
who was to* have* begun paying a div
idend of 10 ' per cent to the depositors
of : the insolvent bank this morning,
was directed by Judge Seawell yester
day to. postpone the distribution of the
"money until March I. 1 This is a vic
tory for- the committee having in hand
the rehabilitation of the institution.
Tuesday the judge first refused to
grant the delay asked for by the re
habilitators, but later, because of an
offer by Judge Boas to advance from
his own pocket to all needy depositors
10 per cent of the amount of their,de
posits, the court vacated the order and
took the :matter under submission.- Its
first order yesterday morning was to
direct that no dividend be paid by. the
receiver before March 1.
The reconstructors of the bank do
not absolutely promise that It will re
open by ..March- 1. but they think it
probable that it will.
H. P. Wilson, the New York capital
ist who is putting $1,300,000 into the
project, was to have left Southampton.
Eng., yesterday, and it is expected
he will reach San Francisco February
23. The stock holders of the insolvent
institution are to subscribe $700,000. t0
the assets of the bank and the prin
cipal matter now to be accomplished
is to collect this cash. With Wilson
on the ground it is hoped the scheme
will be pushed to fruition within a
short period.
Miguel Laveaga Tells of Letter
From Dolores Guerrero
- Miguel Laveaga, who t«*stined again
yesterday in the contest of the will of
his cousin. Maria de l^aveaga, informed
Judge Coffey that before she left Ma
zatlan for San Francisco he received a
letter from Miss Dolores Guerrero ur§
ins him not to testify. Miss Guerrero
resides in the home of Mrs. Josefa
Cebrian, proponent of the will. Miguel
Laveaga was called as a witness by tliu
contestant, Miguel de Laveaga.
Earlier in the case Miss Guerrero
was shown to have written letters to
witnesses living in Mexico making sug
gestions to them in connection with
their testimony.
* Miguel" Laveaga testified that Maria
was of weak mind. . She was not crazy
or' an idiot, he said, but she impressed
him as a woman without will or mind
of her own,- one who generally acted
childishly "and who had to be looked
after. -
