The Matt com mittee, which is composed of leaders In civic. Industrial, commercial and professional life, has decided to put the issue for the election May 9 plainly before the people, it is whether 'they desire -the present constructive and progressive program ,to be continued by.men of the highest capacity and In tegrity and trained for this work, or whether they ••.-ire to turn over the city government to a combination of socialists and county gang politicians.

John Forrest. <*I MV RIM. COMBINE Supervisor .toe Kelley and County Clerk Jack Cook are sponsors for the socialists''county ring opposition. They have spent thousa+ids of dollars to qual ify their men. and they are continuing to spend money raised from all kinds of .sources to carry through the ticket. Kelley is more than anxious to cap ture the commission tinder the new charter. His political power has re ceived several serious setbacks In the county-' through the vigilance of Dis trict Attorney William H. Donahue. OPPOSITION TO SIEESE Kelley and Cook has specially In mind the •nihility of defeating City Treas urer Edwin Meese. Meese has been for many years a strong factor In the city's growth. He has given to Oakland years of service in a wholly unselfish way, and because of his splendid integrity has been the trusted adviser and ex ecutor of many Important interests In private life.

'*: ; Members of the Good Government league opine the ax will fall on al most all of the present city force, but politicians close i to the incoming, ad ministration maintain that the social ists will follow the. rule of the present council and make but few changes in city employes. The principal change will be in the office of the city attorney, which will follow the resignation of City.Attorney Frank D. Stringham, probably In -a month. Stringham Intended to resign several months ago, but was persuaded by Mayor Hodghead to remain. He has undergone a serious operation and is far from well. He will now carry out his Intention and quit the post in a few weeks. Assistant City Attorney B. D. M. Greene will probably go out; of office with Stringham. '', , SOCIALIST ORATOR .MAY GET BERT . F. W. Dorn, a socialist who' spoke at several of the Wilson meetings and took a prominent part in the campaign just closed, is said to be slated for Stringham's position, although the matter has not been decided yet. E. E. Keyes |is ; mentioned as assistant city attorney. The axes of the socialists, especially that of Mayor elect J. Stltt Wilson, are being sharpened for J. D. Galloway, an engineer and president of the City club, who criticised the Berkeley election In an article in the California Outlook, in which he declared that the election of Wilson was "a triumph, of the grafter, the sorehead, the crank and the push." , Galloway, with J. H. Dockweiler of Oakland, was appointed by the city to prepare a report of possible water sup plies for Berkeley. Galloway was to receive $1,000, and was recently named for the work by the city council. , .Unless Galloway actually prepares his report before the end of the present term for the council, the appointment Is likely to be revoked. It is unlikely that other city officers will be disturbed by the new council, Most of -them held office prior to the inauguration of the new .charter two years ago. Mayor elect Wilson has stated from the public platform -that changes will be made only for Incom petence. His words have reassured some of the older employes of the city. SITI ATIOX IX SCHOOL BOARD The board, of education situation promises some lively developments. If John A. Wilson is assigned as commis sioner of finance and revenue, which is likely, he will sit as a member of the board of education with Mrs. Carlisle and Herman I. Stern, both of whom have declared that the board shall as sume active control of the schoola. In| that case Superintendent j Frank F. Bunker will be shorn of much of his power. A prominent socialist, who was formerly a school teacher, would not be averse to accepting*the position should Bunker resign for any reason. Mrs. Carlisle, with the support of Wilson and Stern, will now be of the majority and not minority, as she has been for the last two years with Presi dent Roy Young, Prof. W.C. Morgan and Commissioner R. A. Berry in con trol. , The ascendency of Mrs. Carlisle will be marked by the renewal of the fight to open the schools for meetings of the Improvement clubs and other organiza tions. District Attorney Donahue has rendered an opinion * that school build ings can be used only for school* pur poses, but the new board will probably override this opinion unless a test case is made. The civil service program will prob ably be carried out In the -several de partments of the city, according to Councilman elect John A. Wilson, who is strongly In favor of It. - In that case most of the city hall employes will be assured their positions during good behavior, although appointive by the council.
