GUBERNATORIAL TIMBER STRONG FOR ROOSEVELT Four Aspirants to Governorship Declare Allegiance to "Big Stick" Policies T'Dore Bell to Head Bourbon Ticket to Be Chosen at the April Conference That Theodore Roosevelt is esteemed fey CaJifornia politicians as a name with which to conjure is indicated by the formal and informal declarations of the four avowed candidates for the repub lican nomination for governor. Hiram XV. Johnson, invited into the Kubernatorial race by the Lincoln- Roosevelt league of republican clubs, declares that ho -will make his light as a disciple of Roosevelt and as a cham pion of lhe former president's policies. Secretary of State Charles F. Curry, in tiie fight without invitation from any recognized faction of his party, and \u25a0whose absence from the fight would be welcome to several factions, is a Roose velt admirer, too. Curry believes that Roosevelt is the greatest politician of the age. PHIL CLAIMS r.tItT.XKRSHIP Phil Stanton. forced into the. fight. quite against his will, of course, by a party of his Los Angfles friends. Is a Roosevelt man. He would have it known, more particularly in southern California, that Star.ton and Roosevelt are old j»als In the statecraft business. Was it not Speaker Stanton, with the. \u25a0 ground slipping from under his ffet. upon whom President Roosevelt relied when he wanted to defeat anti-Japanese legislation and Jaj3anese exclusion reso lutions in the California legislature? It v.-as. and .Stanton modestly admits it. Alden Anderson, who will receive the organization's support for the nomlr.a ; lion, says he Is a Roosevelt republican; that lils record sustains his affirmation, and that neither accusation nor stump speeches by either friend or foe will make him anything but a Roosevelt republican. "I have always been a Roosevelt re publican." said Anderson yesterday. VI have always stood for the Roosevelt principles and I shall stand for them in tliis campaign. lam not the candidate of any faction. When the proper time comes I shall formally announce my c*ndidacy and submit my name to the people. I believe in the direct primary law and I believe it should be tested out in the spirit In which it was drawn. FOR FEWER AXD BETTER LAWS '•I have no hobbies to ride. In fact, I am disposed to believe that we have too much law. I would. If it were pos sible, put some restriction upon the law making power, that is. as to the num ber of bills that might be introduced at a legislative session. We would have fewer and better laws. It is impossible for a legislature to give propor con sideration to the great masses of bills thrown in upon them. "My candidacy is not the result of the interest of any faction In the party. My standing With the people will not be affected readily by what any one may say. I have been plant ing orchards and building houses and a railroad. I have taken part in the development nf California. The spirit of CaJifornia Is the spirit of progress. The people know my political and official record. I have always been Interested in and stood for reforestra tion. for reclamation^ for Roosevelt's policies. These things rather than any other influence have resulted in mak ing me a candidate. Nothing that any person can say will affect my record. I <lo nof see how the candidacy of any man should affect mine. The peo ple have the primary law. They can choose their candidate. I believe in leaving it to them. The demands of \u2666**••• Campaign will probably result in c n : stive campaign. I would be quite •nt to leave the matter in the ha '*\u25a0 of the people without campaign."

It is semiofficially announced that de mocracy will select an entire state ticket in Its state conference to be held In Lob Angeles April 12-18. That Theo dore A. Bell will head that ticket none pretends to doubt- Naturally enough Bell says be will not be a candidate un less it is demonstrated that his party wants him to run. That demonstration will be produced at Los Angeles. The Bell wing of the party has been In con trol of the organization for two years and it Js fair to assume that Bell's ad mirers will be something more than a mere majority of the Los Angeles con ferees. CAIITW RIGHT FOR I-IELTTEXAXT Senator George W. Cartwright of Fresno is mentioned for democracy's choice for lieutenant governor. Tom Gibbon of Los Angeles is also sug gested for the second place on the democratic conference ticket. Cart wright is the author of the anti-trust law which bears his name. He was a member of the committee eWsen to pass upon the direct primary bill be fore it was introduced and in 1907 as a member of the senate committee on elections was a consistent champion of the direct primary constitutional amendment. He was a clean and cap able senator and some of the democrats believe it better to accept the reason ably certain chance of returning him to the senate than to take the exceeding ly long chance of electing him lieuten ant governor. Gibbon is the leading: democratic edi tor In southern California, a capable man and his advocates advance the geo graphical consideration as one of his Etronj? assets. Senator A. E. Campbell of San Luis Obispo. a holdover. Is prominently men tioned for attorney general. George W. l^ane'« name was well received at the fggent conference in. this cily.but Lane lias declared that he is not a candidate for any office.

Married Opposition of Parents Owing to Bridegroom's Youth Over come by Young Couple ; A boy and girl romance, which began several years ago, terminated happily yesterday afternoon when Miss Dolly MacGavin and Douglas Fry procured a marriage license, and after securing the consent of. tho groom's mother and legal guardian; Mrs. A. G. Rogers, were married. in the office of Justice. of the Peace. Carl W. Mueller, in the. Grant building. When the parents of the bride learned of the wedding it was decided to have the religious ceremony per formedat their residence. It took place last evening, Rev. George E. Renlson, rector of St. Paul's, officiating. .A few intimate friends of . the family were present. ' ' i The engagement has been - rumored in local society for nearly three years, but because of the youth of the groom, who will not attain his majority for another year or : two, was never fully credited. Young Fry, in fact, had not yet completed his college course. In order to separate, the young people and put an end to the little romance, he was sent to Harvard last fall, returning to the coast for the Christmas holidays. He has spent his time since at the home of- his grandmother, Mrs. John Douglas Fry, in Jackson street, where Miss MacGavin has also often been a guest of late. Shortly after the first of the year Fry accepted a position with the United Railroads and gave up his cqllege ca reer in order to be near his fiancee. The unspoken family opposition still prevented a formal announcement be ing made, and finally in desperation, they took matters into their own hands yesterday. • Mrs. Rogers as the legal guardian of her son until his twenty-first birthday, was the only person they took into their confidence. This was done in or der to secure her sanction to the match, although young Fry was frank In stat ing it was a barrier lie would not let stand in his way. When Mrs. Rogers saw opposition was useless, she gave her consent.. Mrs. Fry is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter MacGavin and a sister of Drummond MacGavin, whose marriage to Miss Helen Baker was one of the social affairs of the fall. Fry, as the grandson of Mrs. John Douglas Fry,, will have great wealth some day. . In his own name he already owns a ranch of several thousand acres in, Sonoma county. Mr. and Mrs. Fry. left last evening for a four weeks' honeymoon trip, and on their' return they will live' in this city, where they have already secured an apartment. • When seen last night both families expressed themselves as pleased with the match, the minority of the bride groom having been the only objection. vireat opecial r urchase bale or Hosiery Tomorrow — Wednesday QQ T t en Thousand Sample Pairs of OA • Mi/v Women's Imported Hosiery &aZjK+ A PAIR 50c, 65c and 75c Values A PAIR A grand assortment of Silk Lisle, Lace Lisle, Embroidered Lisle and Gauze Lisle Hosiery in light, medium and heavy weight cotton, black and colors.
