EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO
EXCUSES AMUSING,
SAID MRS. LAIRD
Berkeley Woman Answers the
Statement of Mrs. W. W.
Stilson
BERKELEY. July 20.— Mrs. Frederick
Jewel Laird, who has brought, charges
against southern California chapters
of the Daughters of the American Revo
. jution who, she says, deprived her of
the honor of being state regent, con
trary to precedent and by means which
should be investigated, declared today
that the excuses of Mrs. W. W. Stilson,
who" was elected state regent in her
place, very much amused: her.
The Berkeley woman declared that
Mrs. Stilson's action in placing the
blame on Mrs. Jolyi B. Dahlgren, a
delegate of the Sequoia chapter to the
rontinental congress, which deposed
Mrs Laird as state regent, shows the
weakness of her position.
A SHAME, SAYS MRS. I..AIRD
"Why. Mrs. Dahlgren did not know
that she was a delegate to the conven
tion until just before the meeting was
vailed in Washington," exclaimed Mrs.
Laird. "Her credentials were received
too late to be of use and she was not
acknowledged as a delegate until the
next day, after the meeting had been
held electing Mrs. Stilson. It seems a
. shame to place the blame on Mrs. Dahl
. gren. who did not even know that she
was a delegate until the last minute."
Mrs. Laird declared she had no in
tention of entrring into a controversy
with Mrs. Stilson. but that she wanted
the matter of the election thoroughly
investigated and for that reason had
written to the Sequoia chapter.
CHARGES DENIED
Mrs. John F. Swift, vice "president
general of the organization, who is
. said to have attempted to call off the
meeting of the few delegates before
the election of Mrs. Stilson. according
to news from the south, denied at her
Berkeley home today that she had at
tempted to interfere with the meeting
in any way.
"The meeting at which Mrs. Stilson
was elected state regent was held on
the first day of the congress, before the
arrival of 'all the delegates. The elec
tion was rushed through and only three
southern California chapters out of
20 In the state were represented at the
meeting.
"Why. one of the California dele
• gates was in Europe, as she had not
been notified of her appointment and
did. not learn of it until weeks after
ward." •
Mrs. Swift Intimsted that there was
much to be said about the politics of
the present controversy, but declined
.to make a further statement of the
\u25a0 'matter. ,\u25a0.;*>"..:.

Blanche Dayne,
Who Appears With
Cressy in Sketch
OAKLAND ORPHEUM
DRAWS BIG CROWDS
New Bill Contains Many Novel
ties Which Make It a Pro=
nounced Hit
OAKLAND. July 20. — That the new
bill at the Oakland Orpheum this week
maintains the high standard of its fore
runners is evidenced by the crowds
which have enjoyed the program.
One' of the big drawing cards of the
new show is the "Ballet . of Light," a
woodland dancing specialty .taken
direct from one of the Metropolitan
Opera House productions.. Unique in
character, artistically staged, and with
superb electrical effects, the act stands
out as one of the headliners.
Equally brilliant is the sketch, "One
Night Only," played by Blanche Dayne
and Will M. Cressy. Cressy wrote the
sketch and ifis in keeping with all of
that clever" artist's' work. Cressy, who
enacts "Hip Flitters," the Pooh Bah of
the village opera house, Jha3 made a
classic of the character.
A splendid animal act is found on the
bill under the direction of Captain Gru
ber. The star is Miss Minnie, an ele
phant that displays almost human in
telligence. " .
Something new is offered in the com
edy sketch played by- John Delmore
and Emily Darrell, who' cleverly depict
the troubles of two traveling thespians.
A bull dog appears in the. act, "and
scores a hit on his own account. -
Miss Whitford, the aeroplane . girl,
has been retained. \u25a0 Assisted by the
singer Hanke, Miss Whitford gives a
pleasing act, comprising musical num
bers and an aeroplane flight with a
darkened house. De Lion, the billiard
expert, has also been held over, and
Frank White and Lew Simmons, the
veteran funmakers, are on the bill. The
show opens with the Five Olympians,
who pose as statues.-

OAKLAND, July 7 20.— Three bond is
sue projects,, the new $1,000,000 city
hall, the building for the fire alarm
and police telegraph service, and .the
Livingston street wharf were taken. up
by the board of public works, this
morning.
To the Rincon-'Ehrhart; construction
company of San Francisco was awarded
a contract to erect the fire alarm serv
ice building at Thirteenth" and \u25a0> Oak
streets at a cost of $44,794: Only, local
workmen are to be hired, -at union
wages; materials are to be; bought in
Oakland from unldn labor; houses, and
merely a- foreman from San Francisco
will be permitted on the job. .
FOR TEMPORARY QUARTERS
The board decided to reject all bids
for the purchase of the old Bray ton
dwelling on park land at Fourteenth
and Alice streets, and to use the build
ing as temporary quarters .for the
board of health and city engineer's oi-.
flee during the construction of the clty
hall. \u25a0"•- '-\u25a0 \u25a0
The board ordered the first prize of
$5,000 to be paid to Palmer & Horn
bostel, the New York architects, who
drew the acepted - plans for the city
hall. Hornbostel and Jones, the: mem
bers of that firm here for the city hall
work, conferred with the board today
concerning the ' building, which . the
mayor said would be commenced within
five' months.
"WHARF BIDS RECEIVED
The third matter before the board in
bond work was the Livingston, street
wharf. Eight bids for the contract
to construct the concrete wharf, were
received. The contract probably will
be let Wednesday. " The bids were:
H. Gould. $127,210:' Mereer-Fraseiv $135,000;
Healey-Tibbets. $110,082; Tiiompson bridge com
pany, $123.500 ; Thompson bridge company, al

company, $H?>,300; Metropolis construction com
pany, $120.775 ; s ßurrPll bridge and construction
company, $131,300; Cotton Bros. & Co., $119,790.
As the Cotton bid is $198 lower than
the next lowest offer it is likely ;that
the contract will go to the Oakland
company. City Engineer Turner, said:
"These bids are considerably lower
than the estimates by/my office. The
time was propitious for advertising- for
bids." . - • •
The Seagrave | fire engine company
was awarded' the contract to furnish
three motor combination hose and
chemical wagons for $14,975. The Nott

DON'T STAY IN THE HOUSE
„ Cured by Poslam. '
"To tell the truth,. I was ashamed to
so "out." says Mr.' John Rogers of At-
lanta. Ga. > "My trouble was eczema, on
each side of my nose arid caused lots or
trouble and expense, I used every, prep-
aration I could get hold of. but they
alt seemed to make it worse : until I
tried poslam/ I can truly say every
trace of it has disappeared and does
not seem to return.- Poslam Is. a won-
derful remedy. I keep some at nana
all the time."
The success of poslam is not at an
surprising when it is considered that
even a small quantity stops itching: im-
mediately and proceeds to heal at once..
The very "Nvorst . cases of eczema, as
well as acne, herpes, tetter, piles, salt
rheum, rash, crusted humors, scaly
scalp and every form of itch yield to it
readily. Blemishes such as pimples,
red nQses, muddy or inflamed skin dis-
appear, the complexion being cleared
overnight. . '
A special 50-cent package of poslam
is prepared for minor uses and this, as-
well as the regular $2 jar, is on sale
by all druggists, particularly Tho Owl
Drug Co.'s stores.
A sample of poslam whlcl* will afford
a convincing test will be sent by mail,
free of charge, to any one who will
write" to the Emergency Laboratories.
