Against Socialist-County
Gang Combine
OAKLAND. April 23.—A campaign
for the re-election of Mayor Frank K.
Mott and a city council in harmony
with he administration will be opened
"in this city tomorrow. 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.
This question will be put to every
voter in Oakland. Every citizen will
be asked to cast his ballot for Mayor
Mutt and the men who have proved
their fidelity to tne administrative up
building of the city.
This ticket is as follows:
.Miyor. '"rank K. Mntt.'

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.
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.
Meese is the only candidate for com
missioner on either ticket who has had
expert experience with the public funds
and the Intricate problems of taxation.
He is now city treasurer, and he will be
selected <***►* commissioner of revenue and
finance If elected. .
Merse Is the sort of man who will be
driven out of public life if the socialist
county ring is successful May 9.
Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock the
businessmen's Mott campaign club will
meet at the Forum to continue the flght
made during the primary campaign. The
club will be enlarged and a series of
big.meetings will be arranged. Hun
dreds of men holding a real interest In
Oakland have given notice that they
will take an active part in the fight.
All partisanship has been laid aside.
The single purpose has been stated In
the decision to flght the socialist-county
ring combination as inimical to the beat
interests of the city.

Charles Sans Arrested in Oak
land Bakery Case
OAKLAND, April 23.The police have
traced the-threatening letter and at
tempted dynamiting of J. Cassou's bak
ery at 811 Clay street to Charles Sans, a
former employe of the bakery, who was
arrested late last night.
Sans* arrest has led the police to dis
card the theory that Cassou was the vic
tim of a gang of blackmailers. _j The
threats to kidnap Felix, the baker's 8
year old son, was part of Sans' alleged
purpose to keep Cassou frightened, say
the police. .
The prisoner when arrested said he
could not write in the English language.
Later he was induced to give the police
examples of * his writing, which, ac
cording to Chief of Police Petersen, re
sembles the misspelled threatening notes
which Cassou received by mall.
Sans has no family here, living in a
lodging house. He has been arrested on
misdemeanor charges In other cities. |

Mayor Elect Wilson and Council
Will Probably Lop Off a
Few Heads
BERKELEY, April 23.-—Now that the
socialists have gained.control ,of the
city.council, which lias the appointment
of all the city officers, there is post
election gossip regarding' whether
there will be dismissals throughout
the city employe list to make way, for
officers fitted to carry out socialist
principles In municipal government. '*:
; 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. '', ,
. 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
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.
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

Not Your Hair Is Diseased
Even if you have a luxuriant head
of hair, you may want to know whether

test yourself that you can see and un

your hair is healthy or not. Pull a
hair out of your head;-if the bulb at
the end of the root Is white and
shrunken, It proves that the hair Is
diseased and * requires prompt treat- i
ment If Its loss would be avoided. If *
the bulb ;is pink and full the hair is
healthy. '„•-_•-"-
