KIDNAPING MAY COST LIFE OF STANFORD BOY University Freshman, Branded on Wild Auto Ride, Is in Grip of Delirium Fever Feared as Result of Hardship Endured en Four Day Trip [Special Dispatch to The Call] SVaxford university, Sept. 4. — Tossing and raving in the grip of delirium, Paul Foote, the freshman student who returned here last night after an absence of four days -with a story of having been kidnaped, robbed and branded by five mysterious men. is lying in a private ward of the Peninsula hos r pital in Palo Alto. He is attended Iby 3. nurse and kept under the con stant scrutiny of severa.l physicians. According to the latest bulletin from the 21 year old lad's bedside, lie is subject to fits of uncontrollable delirium, and though some hope of an early recovery is held out, it is feared that the youth may sink into brain j ievcr. His condition is critical, and the physicians say their only hope of saving the patient lies in leading him into restful sleep. Xo one except those engaged in his care is allowed j V*o even approach the room in which ;.. the patient is lying. Foote arrived at Palo Alto last night from Sacramento and went im mediately to his boarding house at 3JO .Err.erpon street. He came on the 12:45 train, but his friends expected him and were waiting to give him their aid. To their surprise the youth seemed Ktrong and cheerful, despite the .; hardships he said he had gone through. For two hours he told of his adven tures, and then, as he became more and more excited in telling and retelling them, he was persuaded by his two Churns here. Charles Christenson and ! George Perry, to go to bed. Delirium in Night During the night he was attacked J>y the delirium in which he is still raving. Those in the house were aroused by his cries. "Now that you have got my money, : let me go!" he cried again and again. As Christenson placed his hand on Foote's arm to quiet him, the delirious youth sprang out of bed and sank to \u25a0 the floor. "Don't brand me!" he begged re peatedly. "Oh, please don't brand me!" After a time he became quiet and dropped off to sleep, but in the early • rrorning -when Chrietenson entered his rdom again he found Foote lying in a dazed stupor. He seemed not to recog nize those about him. "You know Chris, don't your'^Chris tenson asked him. :"; "Yes, I know Chris," Foote answered stupidly. "I know Chris. But you are \u25a0 i>ot Chris. I don't know you." Taken to Hospital The student recovered his reason ;; "shortly after 8 o'clock, however, but \u25a0could not eat any breakfast, and after . :a consultation with the university au thorities it was decided to have him "removed to the hospital at once. He :. was taken there about 9 o'clock, and ...while on the way he again sank into ; A stupor from which it was impossible . to .arouse him. ;' : Chief of Police Noble of Palo Alto ; has combined with Prof. A. B. Clark, chairman of the student affairs com mittee of the university, in an en deavor to clear up the mystery sur rounding the identity of the five men ; Foote swears took him on the four day trip that ended near Brighton, a small town five miles from Sacramento. An effort will be made to follow the ; route alleged by Foote to have been taken by his captors Jn their auto :.in<^vne, and to find also the rude hut iii^ie hills in which the student says ho was imprisoned. Dr. J. C. Branner, chief of the geol " vgy department of the university and .vice president" in charge during the absence of President David Starr Jor .'. dan in Europe, lias ordered the student •affairs committee to make an investi gation, but will not discuss the oc . < urrtnte in any way.

Among tiio student body a general impression prevails that. Foote is tell ing the truth, however improbable his story seems, but the students believe .that the youth was mistaken by his ;Va"ptors for some one else. 'They think • y-ome rough characters concocted a plot •to kidnap and rob some rich Palo \u25a0 Allan and perhaps hold him for ransom •fn the lonely hut to which Foote was taken.

PINCHOT LEADS CONSERVATION CONGRESS COUP Fight for Control of National Body Waged Against States' Rights Faction Organization of Commission In= augurates Significant Political War ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 4.— Gifford Pinchot tonight inaugurated the fight for control of the national conservation congress, which will begin a five days convention here tomorrow. Pinchot had intimated during the day that the faction favoring state con trol of national resources would have to make the first move if there was to be a fight. However, he said he was not talking for publication. Mean while, visitor after visitor came to his rooms at the hotel and. when not talk ing with these, he was busy at the telephone. The significance of all this ill con cealed bustle became apparent tonight, when a commission was formed for the avowed purpose of bringing the state v commissions into touch with each other and into harmony with the na tional conservation congress. Officers were elected and a committee ap pointed to confer with the national body. The officers and members of the committee are known as friends of Pinchot and national control of natural resources. C. E. Coundra of the Uni versity of Nebraska was elected presi dent, and J. C. Gipe of .Washington, D. C. ' secretary. The following were placed on the committee: Personnel of Committee President Baker of the national con servation congress; O. M. Griffith. Mad ison. Wis.; A. C. Hardtner, Urania, La.; W. D. Douglas, Seattle, Wash.; W. A. Fleming-Jones, Las Cruces, N. M.; W. H. Dye, Indianapolis; E. L. Worssam, Atlanta; Henry A. Barker, Providence, K. 1., and E. T. Allen, Portland, Ore. There were 42 state conservation commissions, which were appointed after President Roosevelt's famous con ference of governors at Washington. The former president at the same tiriie appointed a national commission, which was to act as a sort of solar center to keep the state commissions in their or bit. Last year by an ajnendment to the sundry civil bill Congressman Tawney knocked out the national commission, and since then the state commisisons have been working according .to their own lights, rather than in the syste matic fashion desired by Roosevelt. They were considered by the delegates here, by reason of their lack of central control, as particularly open to the per suasions of the state control faction, of which J. J. Hill is the leader. Pinchot Master Politician By tonight's coup, as it is called, Pin chot is said to have played masterly politics in behalf of the national con trol people, of whom he is considered the field commander. Reports were current in the hotel lobbies tonight that the state control people have been playing a game of their own. It was admitted that the truth of the report could become known only on the floor of the convention, but the rumors had it that three states not far from Lake Michigan would send delegations, the members of which are interested in water power sites. The states concerned have been con sidered safely in the national control camp and for this reason it was gen erally thought best to await confirma tion of the reports. Pardee Scores Delegation According to present plans the friends of national control of public resources will proceed as If there had never been a thought of state control. They do not intend to start anything. Governor Hay of Washington and a le gion of others will attend to that at the first opportunity. On the opposite side from Governor Hay stands former Gov ernor Pardee of California, who held an impromptu reception in the lobby of the hotel tonight. "About 90 per cent of California's water power, developed or otherwise, has been gobbled up," said the Cali fornlan. "I am for national control, personally, but the delegation appoint ed by the governor is headed by a state control man, Judge Short. "The conference of governors at Salt Lake City demanded that capital be properly represented on the St. Paul program and Judge Short, who is attor ney for a number of water power com panies, was selected." The program calls for addresses by President Taft tomorrow and Colonel Roosevelt Tuesday. James J. Hill, who is a leader of the states' Tights people, and Senator Beveridge will address the convention Wednesday. Gifford Pin chot, former national forester and pres ident of the nationaiconservation asso ciation, does not speak until the last day. Henry. S. Graves, the present chief forester, 1 will talk on "The Forest and Nation" on Thursday. Two thousand delegates is the esti mate of the local committee. The ses sions will be held in the Auditorium, which can seat 10,000 persons. Taft Principal Speaker .President Taft will deliver the principal speech tomorrow.'

Congressman S. C. Smith reviewed the situation from a legal standpoint and strongly urged the oilmen to take steps at once to place their side of the case before the department in a legal brief, so that if the decision of the de partment should be adverse it would afford a basis for the bringing of bills before congress, affording proper relief, and pointing out that until such action had been taken before the executive de partment the legislative branch would be disinclined to act. Up to Ballinger Attorney W. S. Williamson of San Francisco, who said that he had had an interview with Secretary of the In terior Ballinger during the later's re cent visit to San Francisco, advised the oilmen to" take the matter up with Bal linger direct, declaring that he felt sure from the conversation he had with the secretary that the latter was will ing to follow whatever course would redound to the best interests of the in dustry. Among other speakers at the meet ing were J. D. Ledennan, an attorney of San Francisco; E. Lyders, formerly chief field division agent of the United States general land office of California; N. A. Johnson of Coalinga and D. E. Perkins of Visalia. The Los Angeles chamber of mines, through its president, R. S. Wilson, gave assurance of the hearty co-opera tion of that body, and Lewis B. Aubury, state mineralogist, assured the organi zation of the full co-operation of the state bureau of mines in behalf of the oilmen.

In i other words. -Miss Cramer, winner of third place in .The Call's California beauty contest of 1907, popular favorite in the Kilb and Dill company and heroine of romance and saga of Marin county, will soon become a nurse, withdrawing herself from secular pursuits and donning the habit of mercy,, the badge of service, isn't that announcement enough to make efery man sick, or play he is sick?

For who would not be sick for the oppor tunity of having California's beauty soothe the feverish pillow? Who, in deed? No man has yet denied the indict ment. It is a trirc bill. The Prize Beauty In March, 1907, the people of Cali fornia and the world first learned of Miss Cramer's wonderful gift of pul chritude. Before that time her friends and townsfolk in San Rafael knew of her beauty. But the world was in ig-*' norance. But on March 5, 1907, Miss Cramer won third place in the be*auty contest conducted by The Call. Out of thousands/of contestants Miss Cramer's; charm was considered almost unparal leled. Three girls of rare beauty won special recognition, and Miss Cramer was among the three beauties. Since then adventures have crowded fast upon the young woman.

T,he escort did not intend to be held up, so he lashed the horse. The highwayman, filled with cagrin, leveled is revolver to shoot at the flying cou ple, but his eye, through the sights of his weapon, caught the beauty of Miss Cramer, His aim wavered. It was too late to stop the pressure on the trigger, but happily the sight of the wonderful face of the girl destroyed the aim of the robber and the bullet went wild. In January, If OS, Miss Cramer planned to go to Paris, where her aunt lived, and study for the stage. But she changed her plans, preferring Califor nia's charms to the effete civilization of ttfe old world.

GENIUS' SPIRIT CALLS UP PASTOR Minister Says He Has Secured Communication With Late Prof. William James . .'\u25a0;' [Special Dispatch to The Call] BOSTON, Mass., Sept. J.— That Prof. William James, -America's foremost psychologist, who died a week ago last Friday, has accomplished his expressed desire to. communicate from beyond the grave if he found, such phenomena to be possible, is the statement made by Rev. Frederic A. Wiggin of Brookline, pastor of Unity church, and a spiritual ist with whom Harvard's great savant had duscussed. this engrossing question. Professor James died at Chocorua, N. H., August 26,' but Dr. Wiggin, who has been attending a convention of spiritualists at Madison, Me., " did not learn the news until last Sunday. He immediately set himself to get in touch with the spirit of the professor, arid declares that during an hour's sum moning of his control, the spirit mani fested itself. "The spirit of Prof. William James manifested itself to me, just' as he promised it would," says Dr. Wiggin.' "Within a week or so; I believe that my control will be thoroughly attuned to the wave length vibrations of Pro fessor, James, Dr. James Hyslop and Dr. Richard Hodgson, who passed over in 1006. Professor James • expressed deep interest In the communication sent : through my control > by. Hodgson, -'and' promised that he could do the same if he found it possible to assert the i will' to communicate. - >-;•«\u25a0 /"When I learned for the first time, last Sunday that Professor James had passed on I retired 'to- my room ••and in sections sought to summon, my con trol. Ever since. I have been- on my vacation .m# control has - been weak ened or has disappeared altogetherfor days at a time. In my individual case control seems to take a vacation about the same time that I do. • -.:'_ "With my control weakened I felt that it would be difficult to 'attain full communication- at; first, for. you \u25a0 must know that a man 'of Professor James' high intellectual type i will emit, from his spirit very, high vibrations. As we have estimated these, vibrations they vary from 30 in a weak spirit to about 7S in the genius, and I know that Pro fessor James' vibrations must be at the latter rate.' To receive these spirit vibrations the control must .be strong. . "My control came to me after a time and I experienced a strong in timation of a presence in' the room. My conscious mind could not translate from the subconscious mind the iden tity of the presence. YettF feel- posi-* tive that the presence that remained there and that I have felt every night since is that ; of Professor , James. When I established communication with ,the spirit of Doctor Hodgson -it began in the same way."
