PATRIOTS OUT FOR

Mission "Commotion" Commit*

Three Slices With Cream
'Editor Call: Today's papers give
great prominence to the meeting of the
Mission. Promotion Committee, a body
of civic patriots who are out for pie
tor their immediate neighborhood all
the time. and never, satisfied unless
they have' three cuts. . Having been
successful' ir. absorbing the great bulk
of. the city's expenditures to the benefit
of their own immediate neighborhood,
they are now actively and clamorously
engaged In campaigning to divert a
la rjje proportion of the revenues of the
port to creating a harbo-r at their own
bark doors by means of the India basin
act.-. While the ringleaders in this
r/amorbi:s body have ever been noted
\u25a0forthelrloaseness. of tongue and tight
ness of purse in any matters pertaining
to the welfare of our city, they do not
hesitate to ascribe any kind of motive
to those' who object to seeing the pub
lic interests butchered for their private
benefit.. : HiJH
. Great prominence is given to a reso
lution ' introduced "by that cheap and
insignificant. . politician. Senator Dick
Welch.' who hbpes. by peddling his
senatorial popition in the next legis
lature to again have the opportunity to
sleep on. the lounge of the chief
\u25a0wharfinger's- office and draw a salary
for dorng It. Dick is a senator, being

'ON TO WASHINGTON'
CRY SUFFRAGISTS
Congress Will Be Bearded in
Its Den by Determined
Squad
A number of the prominent suf
fragettes of this city are preparing to
go to Washington' for the purpose of
storming congress in favor, of votes for
women. This little band of enthusiasts,
which was organized a few days ago,
has its headquarters at 2419 California
street. All the plans for the descent
on "Washington have been completed
and at the head of the delegation will
be Mrs. John F. Swift, Mrs. North
Whitcumb, Mrs. Ellen Clark Sargent
and Mrs. Francesea Pierce.
The plan of the women was an
nounced at yesterday's meeting of the
congress in the Votes for Women club,
which opened for its three days' ses
sion. .
Topics of national, civil, social and
political reform are being discussed in
10 minute talks by able speakers, and
suffragettes from all over the United
States •were present.
Mrs. Elizabeth Gerberding opened the
meeting with her talk on their work,
and among others who spoke were
Mrs. Francesea Pierce. Miss I. Wessel
burg of Utah, Mrs. M. Me Weir, Miss
Selina Solomons, Mrs. Francis C. Meyer
of Ohio, and Mrs. N. French of Sacra
mento, all in favor of the ballot for
women. " There was one dissenting
voice, Mrs. A. L. Bancroft, who ex
pressed herself against it, primarily as
bad for the state's welfare, as the first
thing to be considered. "Women as a
whole are not intelligent enough to
vote." she stated. "Some are. but the
majority are not, and they would only
make a mess of things."
Others Inclined to the view that It
was only by being willing to sacrifice
social position and everything else that
stood in the way that suffrage will ever
be gained, and Mrs. Clarence Mackay
was given a vote of thanks as a pioneer
suffragist in the social world and mak
ing- suffrage fashionable in her set.
Miss Solomons favored street speaking
for women as the best way of gaining
the ballot.
Other points will be brought up to
day and tomorrow favoring their point
of view on every question of the day,
and definite steps will be taken before
the close of the congress to make vot
ing for women an assured fact by this
date next year.

FORTUNES ARE MADE
IN LOST HILLS
Big Coups Reported From Newly
Opened California Oil
Territory
•Chief in interest among oilmen at
the present moment is the opening up
of the Lost Hills as a rich, shallow
territory. Reports from the section tell
of. some remarkable turns, netting
fortunes .to the .operators. The big
coups were made by those. who located
in 'the district arid retained -their hold-
Ings by erecting portable rigs. In many
cases they have sold out for
prices ranging from $100 to $200 an
acre. The land adjacent to the Lake
shore strike" was gathered in . some
months ago. The speculation has cen
tered for the most part about the lands
\u25a0within'- a radius of a few miles. .
Throughout the ;whole district the
greatest secrecy is observed. : This has
been increased; since the Blanket with
drawal of the government lands in the
vicinity. Travelers report that in pass-
Ing over the Lost Hills; country they
found it difficult to obtain definite in
formation of any ; sort. Simple requests
for directions, location sites,' and guid
ing marks were mistaken for design
ing interrobations. This conditions has
been brought about through the un
certainty of titles and the desire to
keep knowledge of strikes well con
cealed. ' '
The visit 'of 'Assistant Secretary
Frank Pierce of the interior depart
ment, it is stated with much confidence,
will result in definite relief to the oil
men throughout the fields. Pierce was
taken through the territory in a man
ner best calculated to let him learn the
exact facts. He was with men who lost
no opportunity to impress upon him the^
necessity for. federal action. .
Although the secretary declined to
make any comment on / the irregular
conditions arising from the government
rulings, it was clear from his state
ments that he had gained a wholly new
idea of the situation as the result of
his trip to the coast.
It appears to be the accepted view
that Pierce will recommend rulings
which will fully protect those men who
% have been operating In good faith. It
is said that he will have nothing of
for those he regards as
mere squatters, who have taken the
land and done nothing toward develop
ment, nor for those who located lands
after they had been withdrawn.
Among the two. largest strikes of the
week are ; those of the Standard oil
company in the North Midway, and the
Palmer on the Blochman lease in the
Santa Maria district. No measurements
have been-taken of the Standard's new
well. The Palmer No. 3 is flowing
nearly 1,000 barrels a day.

THIRTY UTAH OIL WELLS
READY FOR SHIPMENT
Operators Handicapped by Lack
of Transportation #
Reports , from the San Juan fields In
southeastern Utah ar© to the effect
that some, 80 wells are now in a posi
tion .to deliver petroleum. The gTeat
handicap is the lack of transportation.
The' companies are now devoting their
energies toward remedying this condi
tion. The latest strikes are reported
from the London San Juan (Spencer
outfit) and the Ratley.
Two pipe lines are projected to reach
the proved section of the field. One will
carry the oil to Gallup on the Santa Fe
railroad, about 160 miles south of the
field, and the other: probably will run
to Dolores on the Rio - Grande, about
150 miles east of the field.
• It Is stated that , both the Santa Fe
an<j the Rio Grande have given thought
to branch lines into the district.
f Among the recent companies to enter
the field is the Klondyke oil company,
organized last month In San Francisco.
