ATHLETIC AND VAUDEVILLE BENEFIT
FOR THE CAIX'B FUXD TO AID THE OR- . PHAXS OF MOWTT ST. JOSEPH'S ASYLUM TONIGHT at the AUDITORIUM VOLUME CVTIL— NO. 163. SON ELOPES, IS BARRED FROM HOME Jeffreys Martin and James de la Montanya Are Married in Alameda "HE CANT COME BACK HERE," SAYS MARQUISE Simultaneous Telegrams Tell Parents of Both of the Wedding AGES OF IMPETUOUS LOVERS 19 AND 18 TWO messenger boys, moved by th*» same mystic wire, operating several blocks apart at '5:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, simul taneously rang the electric bells at ]7*!o Pa rifle avenue and 3 900 Vallejo street and shoved two yellow telegrams at respectively Marquise James F. de la Montanya and Mrs. Moses J. Lyon. "Miss Jeffreys Martin and I were married at Alameda this afternoon. JAMES FRANCIS DE LA MONTANYA.' read one message. • "Mr. James Francis de la Montanya find I were married at Alameda this afternoon. JEFFREYS MARTIN," read the other. Then there wa-s cranking in hot haste and the perilous skid of bound ing tires off for the Alameda ferry to pee if the marriage could not be an nulled or something before the ink was dry. But the rlan of De la Montanya and of the- Martin-Lyon were not fast enough to check the course of true love when the true lover? were a|jed 19 a.nd is respectively. (The license gave 'the - pronm's age as 11. but that were a polite fiction of romance.) Barred From Home "They can't cone back here." de i :are<i Marquise de la Montanya last evening at the Regillus apartments, Kfifi Pacific avenue. "I am the boys guardian and the enly person who can Interfere or hin der the marriage." said Mrs. Sarah Jane <ie la Montanva, grandmother of the impetuous lover. "What shall I <]o? Well, I want to see the girl first — but I understand that her people , are rather nice and that her step father is a good architect."' "I don't see what they wanted to elope for," said the spokesman of the Mattin-Lyon family at l? 00 Vallejo street last evening. "I don't see why she didn't tell the family that she wanted to marry 0e la Montanya and t'KMi they might ha.ye been married in peace." Is Youth of 19 Young de la Montanya is only 19 years of age, and there came the rub with hie family. The De la Montanya family is of noble French extraction, the h^ad of the house bearing the title r.f marquis — a distinction Instore for ti-.e young benedict and now enjoyed by his father. Likewise, it has achieved more than its share of notoriety. ; In \u25a0 July, 1909. Mrs. Lorena de la Montanya. divorced wife of James de la Montanya and stepmother of the son, killed her self under peculiar circumstances in a flat on Nob hill. She was entertaining as guests two men and a woman friend at dinner and dfter the meal she placed a weapon *.'. her head and shot herself dead. V~ "\u25a0 coroner's jury brought in a ver ci:"et of accidental death, but the tragedy was made, very mysterious by the. disappearance of the two* men who were with her at the time. Later they came forward and admitted the faces of their presence at the time of the woman's death. Mrs. de la Mon tanya was a handsome woman. Barnes de la Montanya hd shortly before been divorced from the womn and showed anything but grief over her tragic end. SOX LIVED WITH FATHER He was much more excited yesterday over the marriage of his spn. Young de la Montanya lived with his father and grandmother at the Regillus apartments, the property of . the De la Montanya family. He had been em ployed with J. J. Duggan In the real estate business In this city. .»-\u25a0>'.. Yesterday morning he announced to his family that he was going to Auburn to close a dval. Blithely he left the house. Nothing more was heard of him until 5:30 o'clock In the afternoon, when the nonchalant messenger boy brought the exciting missive. The young man's mother Is divorced from his father. Miss Jeffreys Martin lived with her mother and stepfather at 1900 Vallejo street. Her stepfather Is Moses J. Lyon, an architect with offices in the Russ building. At noon yesterday Miss Mar tin left the home saying that she was going to get some theater tickets for her mother. Instead of the tickets the Vtelegram came.

Johnson, who will be Cali fornia's first direct, primarj' governor, was elected by the largest plurality given an executive of this state In 20 years. On the face of the virtually, com plete returns Johnson's plurality isl9, 600 and the official returns may' show him winner with an even 20,000 out of a total vote that will break all records and probably exceed 360,000. Theodore Al Bell conceded Johnson's election early yesterday morning in a formal statement issued to. the press and in a letter of congratulations ad dressed to Johnson. The source of keenest satisfaction in the republican camp was the vir tually complete returns for San Fran cisco, giving Johnson a home town plu rality of nearly 1,500. instead of the 2,500 to 4,500 for Bell that/ had been conceded by a majority of-'the republi cans intimately associated with the campaign. In his formal statement Bell attrib uted his defeatNto his unexpected losses In San Francisco and Alameda county. He confidently expected to carry San Francisco by not less than 8,000, and his managers believed that he would get from 10,000 to 12,000 in San Fran cisco and an even break, if not a slight lead, in Alaraeda county. \- That the democratic campaign mana gers had a closer line on Los Angeles county than did . the republicans was demonstrated by the surprising exact ness with which they forecasted John soh's^surprislngly small lead in the southern metropolis, '. the home of the new -chairman of the republican state central committee. ~\ \ Early returns yesterday, apparently indicated that Wallace, republican can didate for lieutenant governor, had been beaten in Los Angeles by SpeUacjv.

A vigorous protest was reg istered by the American ambassador with the Mexican department of for eign relations, and at/the sam? time the facts were "telegraphed to "Wash ington and instructions asked for. Attacks Renewed Tonight the attacks were renewed. Windows in a dozen American business places \u25a0were smashed. All about town shutters were hurriedly drawn and es tablishments closed. Forces of police appeared in the streets and kept the crowds moving. • '. An attack, was made upon the plant of El ImparoJal, and' the "mailing and distributing departments on the ground floor ' were completely wrecked. "The mob battered* at the heavy doors lead ing to the editorial and composing rooms above with heavy timbers and fired the wreckage. Then the mounted police charged with drawn swords. One of the at tackers was run through and' killed. The others fled. An alarm turned in from the offices of the paper brought the fire department to the scene, before the flames gained headway. While^he.ROlloe looked on and seem ingly made no effort to J prevent it, ah American flag floating in front of a candy store in the business district was torn Mown this' -afternoon by a crowd of students and others trampled anJ •spat, upon and torn to bits. Later photographs' of the crowds were tak<»n before the. offices of the Diario del Hogar, a Mexican newspaper, with many individuals waving -bits of the tattered banner. The demonstration today was a con tinuation of the affair of last night, caused by antipathy aroused amongthe people by the burning, at- the stake of Antonio Rodriguez at Rock Springs, Tex., on the night of November 3. Publication of violent attacks on Americans by several Mexican papers tended further, to incense the medical students, who were the promoters of last night's demonstration. Newspaper Violent "El Diario del Hogar" was particu larly violent in expressing animosity toward the people of the United States, characterizing them 'as "giants of "the dollar; pigmies of culture and barbar ous whites. of the north" and asking "where. is the boasted Yankee civiliza tion?" Shortly before noon the crowd as sembled, b'ef ore the new, Juarez monu ment in the Alameda and proceeded to the municipal palace, where several who were arrested, last night were be ing examined by the authorities. 1 A company of mounted police, followed. From * the palace the students marched, through. Avenida San Fran cisco, the principal^ business thorough fare, stopping in front of -the candy store where the flag Incident. occurred. The gathering Increased and marched to the offices of thje department of for eign relations, making demonstrations on the way against American business places and' breaking windows in the San Francis hotel. Jack Davis, an auto mobile repair man. had a. hand-to-hand encounter ' with' a dozen . members .of the crowd when they attempted to tear the top from his automobile and enter his establishment. Heknocked several of them to the pavement and drove them from his place. Children Stoned* At the head of Juarez avenue, around the famous.' statue of the Iron Horse, speeches were made denouncing all Americans and a passings streetcar conveying children to " the American school was stoned!

PRICE FR r E CENTS. TAFT IS TO LEAD THE UNITED PARTY President Believes the Republi cans Will Present a Solid, Front to the Enemy TELLS CABINET THAT HIS PROGRAM IS NOT CHANGED Chief Executive Refuses to Play Politics and Will Not Call Extra Session of 1 Congress STICKS TO TARIFF PLANS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT By IRA E. BENNETT [Special Dispatch to The Call] WASHINGTON. Xov. 9.—Real izing- the real significance of the democratic landslide that ousted the republicans from control in the house. President Taft nevertheless believes that the party of which he is titular leader will now become united and present a solid front to the enemy in 1912. Throughout political circles today the chief subject for discussion was the assertion, made by friends of i the president, that the republican party from now" on would look to Mr. Taft for active leadership. Program -Not Changed At 1 o'clock the president met the members of his cabinei and was clos eted with them for nearly two hours. The results of the election were dis cussed. It' was learned later that President Taft told the members -of his cabinet that he would not change his program one iota as the result of the democratic majority in the house. It was made plain to the cabinet mem bers that Taft will continue to work' progressively, yet conservatively. Law to Be Enforced The enforcement of the aoti-Sher man law. for instance, will be carried out along the lines laid down by the president when he went into office. It is claimed that the plurality rolled up by Dix in New York was cause-l mainly by businessmen who were dis appointed at the course pursued by Colonel Roosevelt. In New York state at yleast the so called insurgents had their chance to show what they coulcl, do, and yet they failed. President Taft^ does not see where the insurgents who have obtained con trol In various districts have demon strated their strength with the people. He does not take the position, how ever, that the insurgents should be condemned. He merely believes that they "should cease their attacks on the regular leaders? an f i get together for the battles that are to come. . . Asked to Act on Own Account The blunt suggestion to President Taft that he now play politics on his own account wa3 made to him by one of his political advisers. It was stated that the democrats were really coming into power on no definite platform anil that they were as much divided on the question of the tariff as were the re publicans at the last session. Champ Clark, who probably will be elected speaker, is a free trader* ami has 'many followers in the honse. If a tariff. bill should be framed by a way* and means committee, appointed by Clark it would be strongly against pro tection.. Refuses to Play Politics A democrat-Insurgent fight, .similar to the one that shattered the unity of the republican party, would at ones be precipitated. These arguments /were cited to .President Taft today, in the course of an argument that It would be good politics to call a special session of the'new congress next sum mer for the consideration of a tariff bill. The country would then see the democrats in action. It can be stated. however, that President Taft has_ re jected all proposals that he play poli tics to insure his re-election lrt 1912. He say's" he has outlined his belief re gardingr a revision of the tariff, sched ule by schedule, .and that the demo .... \u25a0 \u2666 cratic majority In the house will not make the slightest difference in his program.- ;* • „ " ' When the tariff board is ready the wool schedule will be submitted to con gress, and if .the democrats attempt to dodge the ' is*£ue, then the president [will leave -the verdict to the people, of- the country. No Special Session i As for a special session of congrress 'and/, a" general revision of the tariff.
