Gubernatorial Aspirants Unwill*
ing to Espouse Suggestion
for "Convention"
Rumors of Gathering of "The
1,000 Biggest Republicans"
Continue to Pile Up
With not a single gubernatoral can
didate willing to espouse the siigrg^s
tion of a conference of "the«l,000 big
gct-t republicans in the state," for the
purpose of giving a "party indorsement"
to a chosen standard boarer, rumors
r»'gnr<iiiis such a conference continue
to pile up in proportions that presage
definite action.
<"(iarks F. Curry, before leaving San
Francisco Tuesday night for a trip
through the Svin Joaquin and the south,
stamped ti.e conference idea with his
decided disapproval, by declaring him
self out of any scheme that might savor
ev< n remotely of a convention frameuip.
•J am not for anything not in full
Accord with the spirit as welk as the
letter of the direct primary law." as
serted Curry. "An indorsement either
by a conference held under the auspices
of the state central committee or by
?ny number of republicans, claiming
to represent a general sentiment, would
be directly oposed to the spirit of the
primary law. A candidate has all he
can do to keep his own house in order
without sanctioning any such confer
ence or taking part in one."
Phil Stanton is not enthusiastic over
any plan that, as far as lie i^ concerned,
could only result in an elimination
party with a possible offer of second
place on the ticket as balm for disap
pointed ambition, while Alden Ander
son, to whom the proposed "party in
dorsenient" most likely would be given;
is decidedly skepiical concerning the
benerits to be derived from such sanc
tion of his candidacy.
BtliU the conference talk is continu
ing with more persistence from day to
day. Reports from the southland yes
terday were to the effect that it was
not alone the reputed buzzing of the
senatorial bee that lured Governor Gil
lett to Los Angeles, but a desire to
spread; the conference idea, over which
he is avowedly enthusiastic.
Anderson is the governor's choice
for the republican nomination, yet An
derson is not converted to the idea of
wearing the machine label in plain
sight, and that Is about what a con
ference indorsement would amount to.
There is very little hope that the state
central committee will be induced to
sanction the conference plan, but there
sti'l remains the possibility of calling
the "1.000 biggest republicans of the
state" into solemn concla,v<?.
In the Curry camp the proposed con
ference is looked upon as nothing but
a scheme to promote a packed conven
tion of machine men with just
enough independents, L,ineoln-lloosevelt
leaguers and independent union labor
leaders invited to give' it the semblance
of a representative gathering. Hiram
Johnson, with the backing of the Lin
coln-Roosevelt league,- would keep right
on with his campaign, in spite 'of any
thing the conference might do, and
Curry intends , to keep on likewise.
Sterling Campbell of Eureka, who
\u25a0was expected to arrive yesterday to
take active charge of Anderson's state
campaign, did not show up at the An
derson headquarters, but is expected
today or mmorrrtiK.
The completion of -a--full state ticket
by the LincoJn-Roosevelt league Is. ex
pected »t the meeting of the-'ex«.-irtiy*
committee to be held in San Francisco
Saturday morning, and indorsement of
candidates for the various offices on
which the league has not already put
its stamp of approval is pretty well
settled. Grant Taylor of Santa Clara
county, who has asked the league's
indorsement for supreme court' clerk,
is- likely to get it. He- has been for
several years a court reporter in the
superior courts of the county, and in
addition is treasurer of fhe Santa Clara
county central committee and secre
tary and treasurer of the county repub
lican club.
John M. Eshleman, former assembly
man from Berkeley, who was instru
mental in securing the passage of the
anti-racetrack betting bill and is now
district attorney of Imperial county,
has announced his candidacy to suc
ceed Railroad Commissioner Summer
land from the third district,' and is
practically sure of the league's support
for that office. Alex Gordon already
has received an indorsement as candi
date for the commission from the first
district, and Commissioner Loveland
probably will win the league's backing
as representative from the second dis
The state school superintendence is
still causing considerable discussion
among the leaguers. The sentiment in
the south is said to favor J. F. Francis,
principal of the Los Angeles polytechnic
school, and if he signifies a willingness"
to run lie is almost sure of the league's
backing. The school superintendency
in Los Angeles will be open by the first
of next year, however, and Francis
may have his eyes on that.
The fifth of the republican guberna
torial candidates entered the local field
Tuesday, whtn three verification depu
ties were sworn in to secure sig
natures on the nominating 1 petitions of
Phil Stanton. Those named were S. A.
Bryant of 138 Church street, C. W.
Glaze of 1369 Sutter street and H. Glaze
of 1123 Guerrero street.
Grattan D. Phillips' petition for the
noniination for state printer was filed
yesterday. It contained 668 names. .
The additional registration Monday
amounted to 434 names, including 339
republicans. 52 democrats, 30 union la
bor affiliations, 5 socialists and 8 who
declined to state their preference.
Tuesdays registration was practi
cally the same as that of Monday, 430
names being taken. Of this number
325 were republicans, 54 were demo
crats, 41 were union labor, 3 were so
cialists and 7 declined tp state.a pref
erence.- .
The examination of Judge J. M.

Cup For Best Loaf
sterling silver cup
offered by .
:-: The Call :-:
as the
prize for the t best
loaf of
California raisin
baked by any baker
or confectioner
in ,
California north of
the Tehachapi.
BAKERS and confectioners — all of you in California between the north
side of the Tehachapi and the Oregon line— here's a challenge and a
chance for you.
Housewives and cooks olher than professional bakers and confectioners
— all of you in California within the same north and south . boundaries —
here's the same kind of a challenge and a chance for you also.
A handsome sterling silver cup is offered by The Call for the best loaf
of raisin bread baked by any baker or confectioner in the territory described.
Another sterling silver cup, equally handsome, is offered by The Call for
the best loaf of raisin bread baked by any housewife or" cook, not a pro
fessional baker or confectioner, in the same territory.
The sole restriction, beyond the geographical limitations already fixed,
is that none but California raisins shall be used] So go-ahead, bakers, con
fectioners, housewives and cooks. Begin experimenting right away. See
what you can do with one of the finest delicacies California produces.
Impartial judges will pass upon the loaves submitted in this competition.
Their names will be announced by The Call in due course. Full information
will also be published as to where, when and how to send the loaves. In
all likelihood the awards will be determined upon so that they may be
announced April 30, which is Raisin day.
A good many very good cooks have tried their hands at making raisin
bread. Something about what they have accomplished, including suggestions
and hints from expert sources, will be published by The Call during this
competition, all to the end that the competitors may be stimulated to turn
out for the prizes such products as will add to the reputation of California
for good things to eat and that the use of raisins as everyday food may be
largely increased.
Here is one tried recipe for home made raisin bread:
One pint rvater, one pint sivect milk, two ounces sugar, one tounce salt,
two ounces lard, one and a half ounces compressed yeast, two pounds seeded
raisins, four pounds flour (white or whole wheat). Have milk and water Warm.
Dissolve yeast in water. Mix dough thoroughly. Let dough raise well, then
punch down and let raise again. Mold in round loaves and when raised bake
in hot oven of about 450 degrees. When potato yeast is used, use' one pint
yeast and one pint milk or water.

"I will distribute raisins you may send
to whoever you designate. I will take
up with proper officials of army and
navy question of having raisins en
listed as a part of rations. Will not
require legislation. Will write/;
Owing to. the short space of time be
tween now and April 30 it has been
decided to call off the proposed freight
race from thfs city to New York. and
In its stead a race will be inaugurated
between Fresno and Chicago.
Two firms in Chicago have been re
quested to handle the fruit when it
arrives. One car,,- of raisins is to. be
sent over the Santa Fe and the second
car will be sent east over the Southern

which can land the car in Chicago first.
