JOHNSON'S WISHES
RULE DELEGATION
Senator Wolfe Secures Adjourn
ment of Legislators Until
Governor Elect Returns
Desire for Postponement Does
Not Mean Attempt to Con
trol, Says Finn
Because it was told that Hiram W.
Johnson wished it to do nothing until
after it had consulted him. the San
Francisco Joint legislative delegation
decided lapt night to postpone organ
ization until after Johnson's return
from the east.
The allegations touching Johnson's
wishes were conveyed to the delega
tion by Senator EJdic Wolfe, senior
member of tho delegation, who was on
the slate for chairman. Wolfe said he
had got his information from Senator
Tom Finn, who has a majority of the
delegation votes in his political pocket.
Finn said that he got hJs information
about, the desires of Governor Elect
Johnson from Al McCabe of Johnson's
personal campaign organization.
srcGEsnov fnoM wolfe
The adjourned meeting of the San
Francisco delegation held last night In
Superior Judge Graham's courtroom
wsf a shortlived affair. Senator Wolfe
railed t!ie meeting to order for the
purpose of suggesting that it adjourn
until after Johnson's return from the
east. He saiJ that he had been in
formed that Johnson desired the dele
gation to postpone all action until
after he returned. The delegation
members, most of whom were respon
sive to Finn, apparently agreed with
the suggestion and the meeting was
adjourned on the conclusion of Wolfe's
brief statement.
After the meeting- Wolfe said that
his Information with regard to John
son's attitude had come from Finn.
Senator Finn admitted that he had
not been in personal touch with John
son, but said that he 7>a<3 been apprised
of Johnson's attitude by Al McCabe.
KIVX DEFINES ATTITUDE
Finn was careful to make it plain
that the postponement requested for
Johnson was not based on the gover
nor elect's desire to take a hand in the
organization of the delegation as such.
As put by Finn, it was to be Inferred
that neither Johnson nor the control
ling influence on the delegation had
any objection to the election of Wolfe
to the chairmanship of the delegation,
but Finn wished to play wJth the gov
ernor anJ the governor to be wanted
nothing done. Nothing was done.
Before the meeting some of the mem
bers of the delegation were all fussed
up over the report that they were to
be dumped into a delegation Indorse
ment of Milt Schmidt for speaker of
the assembly, Ed White of Sacramento
for sergeant at arms of the assembly
and generally committed to a program
for the organization of the lower house.
"Jack" McCarthy. the lightning
trouble calculator who managed Nat
Ellery's primary sortie on the gover
norship, and who threatens to take
Sergeant at Arms "Jack" Stafford's
scalp, arrived in time to introduce
himself to several members of the dele
gation and to hear Wolfe's explanatory
appeal for adjournment.

Not Be Permitted
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
PORTERVILLE, Dec. 14. — Chief of

and told the proprietors that hereafter
card games played for checks will not
be permitted. These games, known lo

ally patronized and were a chief source
of income in many places.
. Stud poker, played for checks, each of
which represented a value in merchan
dise, was also a popular game,, and
when an officer yesterday saw checks
of this sort to the value of $25 change
hands on one deal, he decided that to
all intents and purposes the game was
the same as real poker.
.« Although the pool hall proprietors re
fused to pay cash for these checks, it
has been an easy matter for owners of
them to turn them into money by sell
ing them at a small . discount, the
checks being accepted at several lunch
counters and cigar stands. - •

ARE YOUR LETTERS EVER
OPENED BY OTHERS?
Frenchman Has Envelope to
Prevent This
An ingenious; Frenchman has per
fected an envelope that Is said to be
proof against the thief or the meddler
who opens a letter to extract or to. read
its contents.
The French contrivance is really two
envelopes, says Harper's Weekly. Each
is of thin paper, one a pronounced blue,
the other lighter in color and different
in texture. Both have gummed flaps.
The letter is first placed in the blue
envelope, which is slightly smaller
than the other. Instead of being sealed,
this is placed In the outer envelope
arid the inner flap is brought outside,
and gummed down upon the larger en
velope.
The outer flap is still unsealed. It* is
much larger than the inner flap and
reaches down to a good sized star
shaped opening, which shows through
to the inner envelope, so that when the
outer flap is sealed it sticks not only
to the outer envelope, but also through
this opening to: the inner one. The
letter is thus practically locked and
double, locked.
NEEDLE CAN BE DRIVEN
THROUGH COPPER CENT
If a needle is shoved into a cork
until Just the tip end shows on the
opposite side and the needle is then
broken off so that the upper end is
flush with or hidden under the top
surface on the cork an interesting
thing, according to the New York
Tribune, may be shown, known as the
increase of pressure. If this cork be
now needle point" down-on a
copper cent or other small coin, a light
blow, pn top of the cork with a ham
mer will drive the needle through the
copper.

PHILIPPINES ARE GOLD
MINES OF TIMBER
200,000,000,000 Board Feet of
Timber There
After several years* investigation off
the forests of the PhiTTppine islands.
Dr. H. N. Whitford is enabled to make
some statements concerning their ex
tent and richness which will be likely
to surprise many readers. He says.
for instance, that the virgin forest
area of the islands, covering 25.000.000
acres, contains 200.000.000,000 board
feet of lumber, and he contrasts thl3
with the 400.000,000.000 feet of timber
growing on the 200.000.000 acres con
tained In the forest reserves of the
United States. In other words the Phil
ippine forests are. acre for acre, four
times as rich as those of this country.
Other authorities agree with Dr. Whit
ford in the opinion that when the
world's eyes ace opened to the value
of the tropical forests a great asset will
have been added to the common wealth
of mankind.
