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

Etronj? assets.

Braves Assemble Today
The indorsement of Hiram W. John
son for governor by the Lincoln-Roose
velt league of republican clubs is ex
pected to incite the state league of
Iroquois clubs to perform a similar
service- for Theodore A. Bell and the
democratic party today.
. The state convention of the Iroquois
will assemble this morning at 10 o'clock.
The day sessions will be held at 216
McAllister street. The conferences will
close tonight with a banquet at the
Argonaut. Among the speakers will
be Judge L«.ttimer, Thomas E. Hayden.
Walter .Mac Arthur, Theodore A. Bell
and M. C. HasaetL
The northern California braves of
the Iroquois tribe have heard that there
is opppsition to Bell south of the Te

represented In the convention today,
but it is announced that the local club
will be governed somewhat In the mat
ter of indorsement for governor by
the temper of the delegates from the
country.
The Iroquois are anxious to get

him the logical candidate. The con

also promised that the convention will
condemn the primary law and propose a

ROMANCE BRINGS
SECRET WEDDING
-\u25a0:•\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0* —
Dolly MacGavin and Douglas
Fry Slip Away and Are
/ . 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.
