SPEECH MAKER
IS GREETED BY
LOUD HISSING
J. H. Braly Offends Socialist
Members of Suffrage *Au*
dience by Remark
Champion of Women in Many
Previous Sessions Arouses
Storm of Indignation
A tumult of hisses, with an accom
panying storm of indignation, swept
the evening session of the fortieth an
nual convention of the equal suffrage
convention of California, which, gath
ered yesterday at the .Palace hotel.
A stranger within our gates, J. H.
Bra'.ey of Los Angeles, for 11 years vice
president of the San Jose " normal
schoo], was the man hissed, he- having
offended the socialist members of the
audience, who gathered to honor J.
Stitt Wilson, socialist candidate for
governor, who was also one of the
speakers of the evening.
Rraley. who is the organizer of the
political equality league of the south
ern city, heralded as a suffrage club for
men and women, was considered one of
the star speakers of the convention. He
Was mentioned yesterday morning by
Sirs. Lillian Harris Coffin In her ad
dress as -the angel of the suffrage
in California." and had been hon
ored by all the leading officers and
members, but suffrage delegates were
outnumbered last night by men of the
socialist party, who more than half
filled the room. -
During the course of his address on
"What We Have Done for Woman's
Suffrage in Southern California" Braly.
who is identified with the insurgent
movement in poli{ics, said: "We have
been doing a little reforming down
south of late years. The city of Los An
geles has not had as good a government
a.s it was entitled to all the time. So
we decided to have reform. First we
g"ot a direct primary nomination law
£Rd the Initiative', referendum and re
call. The reformers then said, "Let us
try the recall on our unworthy mayor."
It worked well.
"We cha.nged mayors and got a good
one. Then two years ago under the
eperation of the direct primary law
they elected a splendid set of city
officers. And now Los Angeles has the
best city government in the United
States, not excepting this. San Fran-
Cisco."
Hisses began to rise with gentle per- I
clstency during the first of this pass- i
age. and when the announcement came
of the virtue of Los Angeles' govern
ment a storm of ' hissing nearly
drowred the speaker's voice. He
looked politely puzzled, but hastened
to add the reference to San Francisco. I
thinking evidently that the patriotic
spirit of the San Franciscans wa?
aroused and not realizing the nature
cf the audience.
DOUBT REMOVED LATER
Any doubt as to the c?use of the
disapproval so boldly displayed -was
removed, however, when J. Stitt Wilsnn
took the platform. In the course of his
speech he turned to Braly. who sat in
in the front row of the audience, lifted
his arm. pointed a curved forefinger at
the southerner, and raid: "I will ex
plain to Mr. Braly what \u25a0we mean. He
did not understand the hisses, it was
not for San Francisco. It was at his
claim of the best city government in
the United State?. It was for his good
government, which has 200 men in jail
tonight." " \u25a0 ...
Wilson referred to the ordinance re
cently passpd^tiy the Los Angeles city
council forbidding the socialists from
liolding meetings on the streets, and
•whifh has resulted ip the arrest of a
numbT r>f men.
Storms of cheers and hand clapping
greeted Wilsor 1 'as he made his way to
the platform immediately after Braly's
speech and *very period of his address
was a-I<-.rned with further applause
from his followers until finally the
president of the convention. Mrs. Eliza
beth . Low*» Watson, who expressed
freely her sympathy with the socialist
party, was obliged to ask that order be
preserved.
Great indignation was expr»?.sed by
many of the delegates and members of
the convention at tfie insults offered
the man whom they consider one of
thefr strongest and wisest supporters,
and whose influence, .time and work
have been given so freely in behalf of
their cause. ' There were many plans,
suggested as to how th*» action might
be explained or counteracted an*3 to
iay will probably bring forth some
expression of apology from at least a
large number of individuals. ' if not
from the convention as a body.
FACTIONS pi COVVE.VTIOIY
With fairseerning suavity, with every
outward grare of courtesy, harmony
and sisterly love, with enthusiasm and
earnest intent, the convention met yes
terday morning at the Palace hotel, but
beneath the outward placidity lies a
B. burning fire of opposition, it is said,
Reform politics, radical measures and
practices as opposed to conservative
Ideas and plans, and even, it Is whis
pered, personal likes and dislikes, are
threatening to produce heated discus
sions and strenuous campaigning.
On the one hand is the party headed
by Mrs. Lillian Harris Coffin, first vice
president, and chairman of the state,
tentral committee, whose methods have
hren vigorous.
J On the other hand is- the party of
f-onservatives.f -onservatives. the banner of which is
'iorne by the Susan B. Anthony club,
of which Mrs. Fanny L. Kellogg is
president, with Mrs. Mitchell of Oak
land as a close adherent, .it is claimed.
Mrs. Elizabeth Lowe.,- Watson, who'
was fleeted Mate president as a dark
uorse last year at Stockton, seems to
tave the support of both Fides, as it Is
Jeclared that she has tact, common
sense, and diplomacy and is the friend
»f both the labor union and" the so
rialist parties, who have ever been
Itrong supporters of equal suffrage.
Mrs. Watson declared that it is im- i
joesible for her to accept the office
igain.
Mrs. Elizabeth Gerberding is men
tioned most prominently as the coming
president. The Susan B. Anthony club
5 said to have put forth Mrs. Ger
oerding and to be supporting her
irdently. Some of the opposition, those
vho are strong adherents of the reform
jolitics idea, say that Mrs. Gerberding
aas never done any political work at
ill, save as a member of the Heney
voman's club, and that a president with
i deep political instinct and experience
£ needed at this crucial point in the
idvance of suffrage in California.
Mrs. Hattie J. D. Chapman of Ala
neda is spoken of as a candidate, and
ilrs. Mary McHenry Keith, wife of the
arnous artist, was also approached and
endered a nomination, which she de
lined on account of her husband's ill
leaith.
J :lection this morning
Thsl morning may witness an excit
ng conflict when. the election of state
ifficers takes place, although it .is ex
acted that, as is customary at women's
onventions, all the wire pulling and
Jate fixing will be done before- the

vention. Mrs. Coffin has said she will
accept no state office this year.
The most soothing influence at work
in the convention, it is declared by
those in the heart of things, is the
recent adoption of a suffrage plank by
the republican party of this state. So
overjoyed are all true suffrage work
ers, both conservative and radical, at
this signal step forward that minor
differences and the question of who
really secured the victory are for the
moment almost forgotten.
Miss Madeleine Frances Wills will be
the first vice president, it is confidently
prophesied. but the rest of the ticket
has not been sufficiently settled to be
positively stated as yet.
The convention, presided over by
Mrs. Watson, opened at 9:30 o'clock
yesterday morning with an invocation
by Rev. William Kirk Guthrie. Two
minute reports were heard from the
following officers: Presidents Mrs. Wat
son: recording secretary. Mrs. Jennie
V. corresponding secretary,
Mrs. Francesca Pierce: treasurer, Mrs.
Mary T. Gamage; auditors, Mrs. Alice
L. Park and Mrs. Helen Moore. These
all showed a flourishing condition of
affairs^ the treasury having a surplus
of more than $200 at the. present time.
Report* of the following standing
\u25a0committees ' were heard: Press. Mrs.'
Mabel Craft Deering: literature and
printing. Mrs. Alice L. Park; education.
Miss Kate Ames; organization, Mrs.
Helen Moore, and state central commit
tee. Mrs. Lillian Harris Coffin.
Miss Ames declared that the control
of schools has been in the hands of men
alone and the viewpoint is limited to his
special needs and is therefore partial:
and that educational and economic, con
ditions are such that the finest type of
men no longer prepare for school work
and women, who naturally seek teach
ing, are finding that the removal of
opportunity and the limitations of re
sponsibility drive the finest to other
occupations.
HISTORY IS TRACED
Mrs. Coffin In her report traced thje
history of the state central committee,
which is the legislative committee, frorii
its appointment, through the convention
at Santa Cruz, the convention at Stock
ton and at Oakland, with nine weeks',
sojourn at Sacramento when the legis
lature was visited daily. "There," Mrs.
Coffin said, "the rotten political methods
of the men were observed and used
since for the downfall of the originators
of these methods themselves."
The recent indorsement by the- re
publican convention. Mrs. Coffin said,
she regarded as the culmination of all
the work of her committee.
\u25a0 She declared that this "convention is
her swan song, as she. will now
retire from active part in the ' state
suffrage movement and will devote her
efforts to "reform politics" or the in
surgent movement in this state.
The president's address; which fol
lowed these reports, was filled with en
couraging and cheering Ideas as to the
state of political 'equality and the fu
ture is filled with promise, she de
clared. . . ' . •
She said that to her the great insurg
ency movement in politics which has
swept over the country she regarded
as the most hopeful- measure for _the
great cause of suffrage, and she com
plimented Mrs. Coffin's political meth
ods. \u25a0 , \u25a0 .
San Francisco, she warned her hear
ers required much attention from them,
as it is the stronghold of the enemy.
Reports were heard from a number
of the clubs of the state, all telling of
progress. ; . • . •

JENNIE CROCKER'S
Magnificent Tevis Place in
Hillsborqugh to Be Her
Home After New Year
fonilnnrrl From Pajce.l
li.am Crockers and the William B.
Bourns were among those who rented
the place for a number of years, a«d
.finally the property passed into 'the
hands of Mrs. William Tevis. the/pur
chase being to' please her four young
sons.
Since becoming owner of the 'domains
Mrs. Tevls has ; improved the property
in every way, so that it. nowjiin \u25a0many
respects, ranks as .the finest' residence
property/in Hillsborough^. No. other,
place'commands ' a finer location,' nor.
a better view and it is unsurpassed for
its natural beauty. It lies well back
in; the foothills, adjoining New Place,
the new home of Mr. and' Mrs. 'William
Crocker, where their famous -recent
ball was held. ,1
The old Barroilhet home still stands
arid this doubtless will be pulled down
and replaced by a striking modern
structure, as the old high ceilings, nar
row hallways and -beamed .' roofs "Of- a
bygone day still mark its: architecture.
The surrounding- grounds have. been
brought to a, -high point of perfection
by the recent. owners, and rustic bridges
of redwood, teahouses "and" pleasure
spots, with benches arid tables and
swings, are to be found as resting
places along \the banks of the. two
creeks flowing through the property
and the! maple and pine woods that
form a 'background for the ' acres of
rose bushes and other choice flowers.
Tennis courts, conservatories, and in
fact everything necessary: to make life
in the, country a : delight, are already
supplied'- but the house, and that Miss
Crocker- "will undoubtedly take steps
to mend' right away. - :
It Is expected that her grandmother,
Mrs.. A. M. Easton,' "will also leave
Uplands and will continue !to make
her home with Miss Crocker'.-when the
change -Is- made after/the first", of the
year. The sale "was made through
Shainwald, Buckbee & Co:; and the price
paid by Crocker, estate for the proper

MINING CONGRESS
ENDS CONVENTION
Department of Justice Is Called

John Dern of^Salt Lake City Is

\ :
\u25a0 -LOS -AXGELBS/Sept; 30.— The Amer
ican mining- congress wound up -the
business of "its 1910 convention today
with the election of officers and the
adoption of several resolutions, prin
xipal among which was one calling 1
upon congress to instruct the depart
ment of justice' to investigate all
grants' involving oil , or other mineral
lands- and take action to revest title
to these in the public. - 1
• Arizona was chosen for the 1911 con
vention. Either Douglas or. Phoenix
will be the place of meeting. The
board of directors of the congress will
make the choice later. / .
John. Dern of Salt Lake was elected
president and James Callbreath of Den
ver, re-elected, secretary. The follow
ing vice presidents were chosen:
Samuel A. Taylor of Pittsburg. D. W.
Brunton of "Denver and E. A. Mont
gomery of Los Angeles.
The resolution in reference, to the
investigation of land grants was a sub
stitute for that Introduced by Thomas
E. Gibbon of Los Angele3, which al
leged definitely that the land grants to
the Southern Pacific railroad in Cali
fornia were Invalid by reason of the
discovery of oil and calling upon the
government. to take immediate s£eps to
recover a large area in the midstate
section. The substitute omitted the
name of the railroad and made .the
scope of the 'resolution general so as
to include grants . covering mineral
lands of every character; in every pub
lic land state.
The ground for the proposed action
is that the grants .conveying the lands,
particularly those to the Southern Pa
cific in California, excepted all areas
bearing minerals with the exception of
coal" and iron.
Tonight the delegates to the mining
congress are enjoying recreation at a
vaudeville show, roof garden fete- and
jinks.
Another resolution adopted today
suggests a change In the rulings re
lating to oil lands and asks that with
drawals affecting oil lands contiguous

Pacific railroad in California be abro
