Alameda County Organization
Will Provide Free Treat
>, meni and Lectures
OAKLAND,- March -5. — For the bene
fit of the poor of > the city the Alameda
County dental society \u25a0\u25a0 will open ; free
clinics in : Oakland and Berkeley about
theniiddle of the coming month/./
'For the present the Oakland insti
tution will be \u25a0 established in - rooms
offered by the Oakland College of Medi
cine in their building at. Thirty-flrst
and Grove streets. The details of the
Berkeley institution are not arinountcd,
but both will be equippedjby the society
and each member of. the I organization
has agreed to devote half ,a day every,
month, to attendance upon the work. ;
The society has SS members'' at the
present time. .. It was organized in IS9I
and/now embraces practically all : the
reputable dentists of the county. Its
ofneers are: -Dr. C. O. presi
dent; Dr. K. K. Evans, vice president;
Dr. ; Paul :T. Ca rrington, secretary; Dr.
,E. E. r Vicary. treasurer. "
A committee Avas appointed to carry
out the" various suggestions and the
members are_ working enthusiastically
to that end. .They are Drs. Paul T.
Carrington, chairman; K.E. Evans. J.
U Pease, C. F. Jarvis. M. T. Rhodes,
Walter . R..' Hjugh.es and E. P. Carlton.
The Berkeley, clinic will be conducted
by the dentists of that city, but under
the direction of a subcommittee of the
dental society.
The movement is purely, a charitable
one and will be maintained by the so
ciety itself. An effort was recently
made to secure an appropriation from
the : board of supervisors to carry on
the' work, -but it -was unauthorized by
the society.V
Furthering' the work of education
the- society will delegate its members
to tUe lecture field In addressing the
classes' of the' schools of the county and
to the mothers' clubs which have been
formed in connection with the schools.
Present Themselves as- Willing
to Succeed Auditor
OAKLAND, March s.— Candidates to
succeed County Auditor George S.
Pierce; whose resignation will go to
the board of supervisors Monday,; con
tinue to. crop up. Besides the several
Berkelcyans and Oakland citizens al
ready mentioned there have appeared
J. C. I ledemark, a property expert in
County Assessor Dalton's; office, a
Berkeley resident,' and Julius C. Lut
gen, (in accountant, livfng at 2320 Web
ster street, -Berkeley. ' '!'
Walter Gompertz assured some of his
friends today that he felt confident
that the- plum would fall to him. The
supervisors have been noncommittal
thus far, and they assert that no de
cision has been, reached. Pressure is
being exerted on behalf of the men now
in the fight, including Walter Woolsey.
As a" possibility Jesse' V. Mendenhairs
name is being presented.
All. of. the foregoing are Berkeley
patriots. .In Oakland E. F. Garrison of
the city assessor's office, now campaign
ing for, the republican nomination for
county auditor at the August primaries,
hopes to land, in event of a plethora
of college city candidates leading to a.
deadlock. City Councilman Harold
Kverhart is likewise not hiding him
self in event of such a contingency.
- Berkeley on the face of it appears to
have .the better of the situation, ac
cording to the politicians.

Municipal Electric Rower Sys»
tern Contemplated by the
Council of Berkeley
i BERKELEY, March s.— The city
council .of Berkeley may establish a
municipal electric light plant, accord
ing .to the announcement of Commis
sioner Wilbur F. McClure, head of the
department of ; public; works, today.
The Tcouncil lias- been considering, the
matter for the last three months and
has, -had competent engineers ' looking
into the matter.
.Twenty years ago the city owned a
municipal electric lighting plant, but
turned it over to the. Berkeley electric
lighting company under a contract,
which is. said to be still in effect, al
lowing the city to have its .offices
lighted gratuitously. . This matter is
now being investigated.
' Thepresent system here has
been a/matter. on which the improve
ment clubs, have argued, by the hour.
The improvers are of'the opinion that
the 220: volt system is "expensive and
not as effective as the 110- volt current.
The question has been frequently agi
tated here,~ but no change, has been
ordered by the public, service corpora
tion, in spite of the numerous .pro
tests. /; \u25a0 ;:-': . • ' » r
Alameda has a' municipal plant for
lighting purposes which is operated at
a profit, 1 and the council believes that
Berkeley can build such a plant, both
for supplying lights for the city and
for the residents.
.Under the new charter the acquire
ment of the plant meets with no legal
difficulty, and* the coifncilmen are en
thusiastic over the scheme for cheaper
Lazy Housewives Make Cost of
Living High
. Ft is lazy, women who mnke the cost of Jiving
high, so says an ciniDent tnultlmiUiouairp who
oughtto know better. He saysjhat wives do not
go to- market, but Ui'p** ll^ on Vjutchf r boys and
the telephone to. do .'marketing, -with the result
that they set the poorest sort of foodstuffs at the
highest prices, shjts the Philadelphia Inquirer.
It is, a terrible imlictment; if true, something
ought to be. done to the lazy wives. But is it
true? We thiDk not. The multimillionaire, from
the vantajte point of his private car or limousine,
may jet a wrons* perspective of t-oclety. He U
senernlly seeinjr pictures of things instead of the
things themselves.
-It is quite- tcue that there sre some women
who do not go to. market, but these are, they
who care not whst the prices be. Ther ran
afford anything. 00 per c-;ut of the women
who supervise the domestic table know pretty
well wliat Is in the market and where to cot the
ehojipest. -The allowance for the table in nrist
bou^eboHs has not increased In. the. last few
years. In the meantime." bribi^s have- come alons
and with more mmiths to feed, the economic
problem lias become ' arutet ' There are michtr
few wives who do not know to a fraction where
tli* fx-st anil cheapest or the poorest and only
available, foodstuffs arc -to be found. AslcSanjr
btitcher or grocer whether women do not know
about prices. '.
Tlie pr>vif lies in the fact that women are the
economists of the borne. If. it were only a mat
ter of food the situation .would be. simpler, but
In these days. women have to dress better than
ever before, and the only way they con do so
in by exercislnc tbe closest scrutiny over e*ery
expenditure. It if a libel on the sex to say tbnt
ther spend lavishly and extravagantly on the
table. \u25a0 when there are, so many things to be
bought for personal adornment. The truth is
that women are very keen 'economists. They
may not know so much about the chemistry of
cooking as th'-y. should, may- be . deticieut in a
knowledge of the way in which a great variety
of foodstuffs might be. used to advantage, but
they are not spending a cent which is unneces
sary. '• The causes am further to seek and are
pretty well known to every Intelligent person.
Just. 70 years ago New Zealand first became a
part of the British tnipire, observes the West
minster Gazette. Rumors of an intended French
occupation 'and trouble between the natires and
the British settlers who had crossed over from
Australia were the chief reasons for the annexa
tion of thn islands, which was carried out by
Captain Hobson. R. X.. on behalf of the cot
ernor of Se.w South Wales. Captain Hobson
landed, in the north island January 29, IS4O. and
February 0 the famous treaty of Waltangt,
signed hv nil: the principal Maori chiefs, made
Queen Victoria sovereign of New Zealand. Tha
Knclish government was only just in time; 'for a
few weeks later two French warships arrived
with orders to annex the islands. New Zealand
was made a separate colony In May. IS4I. and
self -government was granted to the colonists in

In' the of Frnr.ce is "a concrete arch
brldse. known hs the Pont dn Gard, which was
erected in the year T><\ R. c\ ;~ The concrete in
this, says the Cenieut Age. -was not composed of
crushed sione or other small acstregate of the

but was of the old style, consisting of alternate

able that the Point duGard would have with
stood the rigors of climate of the. northern
United States, but its actual state of preserva
tion, as well as thatof ;man.v other specimens
of ancient concrete work, proves that if. modern
work ( is honestly executed . it; will' many times
outlast any reasonable bond period, so that a

Women Students, and Possibly
Graduates, to Have Public
"BERKELEY. March Z.— The suffra
gettes are to make their first' public
demonstration on the campus of the
university during the celebration inci
dent to .the semicentennial of the col
lege of . California, the precursor of the
university, in May. The women will
carry banners in the procession appro
priately marked and will probably
adopt some dress which will be signifi
cantof the occasion.
Mrs. William Keith, president of the
Berkeley political equality society, has
planned^, the procession of the suffra
gettes at the pageant of the classes
which will be part of the celebration.
Mrs. Keith is a graduate of the univer
sity and will take part in other activi
ties connected with the semicentennial
events besides the procession.
. The matter is to be laid before Prof.
William Carey Jones, chairman of. the
pageant, and every effort made by the
women interested to, have the demon
stration held on the campus. If the
committee gives consent Mrs. ' Keith
will at once summon the. graduate suf
fragettes to take part.- •'"

Some of the Russian universities are
conducted in a very perfunctory man
ner. In fact, some despise their func
tions, says the London Globe. The ex
aminations are passed before a single
professor, assisted at the most by a
deputy, and sometimes the deputy alone
conducts the degree of examination.
Recently the examiner at one seat of
learning, having another engagement,
arrived at the "schools" before the
hour appointed. His assistant was not
there. The chief examiner proceeded
with the "viva voce." Out of 27 can
didates he plowed 24. The other
three did not dare to come forward.
"Xo more?", asked the examiner, but
there wjas no v response. The "bour

Almost before the unfortunate can
didates had recovered from their cruel
disappointment the assistant arrived.
He apologized for being late and for
the absence of his principal. One of
"the -7 had by this time run away. The
assistant commenced the examination
afresh. Of the 26 candidates' whom be
examined he let through 23 with the
observation. "Very good," and the re
maining three lie marked "Passed."
The senatus was very embarrassed
when It received the two contradictory
reports. To save the professorial face
the .senatus declared that both report"
were correct and congratulated the
candidates on having made such prog-j

Hillside Residents Travel Fast
Over Greased Tracks on
Steep Grade
BERKELET. March 5.— Residents of
the hillside district, who have been
trying to secure rapid transit from the
Oakland traction company, had the If
desire gratified last nisrht when the
Euclid avenue car. in chars* of A. i*-
Taylor, motorman. shot down the Hearst
avenue bill from in front of Doctor
Wheeler's future mansion to Arcn
street Some calculated that th<-y
were traveling: 90 lnilos an hour. ir.»
more caaaervatlve saying it was at
least 60 miles.
Had it not been for Taylor's prompt
ness the car. laden with passenger*
just at the theatf-r hour, would hate
jumped into the ditch at Oxford -street. J
Taylor applied sand and managed t<>
make the brakes hold.
A "practical" joker was the CJ^"*
of the trouble, baring jrreased r^y
tracks at the top of the hill for tliej
purpose of making the car so fn*:*
It did.
Fireproof Fiber is Really Quar
ried, Not Mined
Strictly speakinjr. asbestos is n«>c
mined: it is <{U;irri<»d. Instead of bur
rowing into the jßrrourwl .md dlgglnc
out the rock, as coal Is produced, the
work of securing asbestos Is done in
open pits, similar to stone r|uarrio."».
The fiber is found in the cracks an.l
seams oC the rocks, where it was de
posited countless centuries aC;>. soon
after the creation of the world. The
rock bearing: asbestos is cut out,
hoisted from the pits i:t box's by
means of cable way 3 and is plaee»l in
tars at the surface. Tt Is then carried
to- the mills, where the rock is crushed.
dried and pulverized. aft»r which it
passes over shaking screens and under
-vacuum pipes. Durins: this trip thf
fiber is, literally speaking, sueke.l
away from the 'sand, to be blown into
; dusting and cradinp machine*. It is
then ready to be packed in basjs for
: shipment.
The most extensive scale on which
asbestos is pro-luced is at fh^ quarries
of the Amalgamated asbestos company
in the province of Quebec. £eveiit>
p«»r cent of all the asbestos supply ' n
the world comes from these five quar
ries, and in th<* opinion ft experts thy
yield is practii-ally inexhaustible.
Twenty-five yt-arr. a£<"> tl;^ demand
for asbestos wan very limited, the r«-
sult beinc tiiat the production was
' small and priors low. Bttt as the uses
i for this only known fireproof fiber m»il
t tiplied and the demand grew, f.rixlui'
tion and prices both ini-rens«-d rapi.lly.
In lSi»i* the ereat Canadian asbestos
belt, from which comes nine-tenths ot
the world's supply, produced only ?,WMI
