EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO
PHONE HEN CALLED
TO EXPLAIN DELAY
Promise of Better Service
Broken, According to Com
missioner Anderson
City Council of Oakland Takes;
Action in the Matter of
Alleged Delinquency
OAKLAND, Oct I."..—The city council j
today instructed Frank Thompson, city j
clerk, to request* the executive officials j
of the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph j
company to appear Friday and show
reasons for failing to improve the
telephone service within 60 days, as
had been agreed upon. H. S. Anderson,
commissioner of public woi»ks. called
attention to the alleged delinquency of
the corporation and moved that the
officials be compelled to show cause for
the poor service.
Anderson said that the officials ap
peared before the council . more than
two months ago and promised better
ments in the service.
"More than 60 days have gone by
since that time," said Anderson, "and
tetVlce has been getting worse
right along. To my personal knowl
edge it sometimes takes 15 to 20
minutes to get another party on the
telephone."
Although many women and members
of the public welfare and censorship
committee appeared in the council
chambers in expectation that the pro
posed ordinance for the regulation of
theaters would be taken up, no action
was taken today. A number of theater
proprietors asked for a delay of two
weeks in which to offer objections to
the measure, which would involve
chaoses in the character of productions
on the theater stages and motion pic
ture screens.
Efforts will he made to have the cen-
Borahip power taken from the public
welfare and censorship committee and
given to the chief of police.
The appointment of W. C. Barnard
as chairman of the welfare committee,
also known as the "vice commission,"
was objected to by Anderson, who said
that Barnard was a resident of Pied
mont. Mayor Mott said that Barnard
was well fitted for the position because
of his activities in welfare work, and
ratified the appointment.

"THE WOMAN"
A GOOD PLAY
Strong Drama Is Being Pro
duced at Columbia Theater
by Clever Company
WALTER ANTHONY
David Belasco has never staged a
play from "The Rose of the Rancho"
to "The Easiest Way" that wasn't a
good story. "The Woman" at the Co
lumbia is a good story. It was writ
ten by William C. de Mllle, but It was
garnished with "Amen corners," in his
toric hotels wherein the elevators rose
and fell just as though there were pas
sengers riding to the third floor, and It
was trimmed with realism until the
auditor almost felt that he owed money
to the Hotel Keswick, in Washington,
D. C.
When the third act came the elab
orateness of the Belasco appointments
were Justified in a real, gripping drama.
The elevators were forgotten, the
switchboard with its real telephone girl
on the first floor of the hotel was
Ignored, and a situation of inherent
dramatic value was revealed. The au
dience forgot that it was a Belasco
production and began to think that the
folk on the stage were essential when
they listened to the little telephone
girl defend the wife of Robertson from
New York.
The only time that Belasco's marvel
ous stage craft Is impressive Is when
you forget it. That happened in the
third act of "The Woman" Monday
night at the Columbia, when Belasco's
better genius developed a tragic Im
portance.
The little telephone girl, to whom I
have made previous reference, had re
fused to make a telephonic connection
for designing politicians. She knew, in
the second act, that th< honor of a mar
ried woman was at / :e. Her sweet
heart's father was bei, on getting the
truth about her marri-d friend's rela
tions with Matthew Standish, who op
posed all of the sweetheart-father's
schemes. As much as $10,000 was of
fered to the sweetheart, who, as I have
said, was the telephone operator in the
Hotel Keswick, but she would not tell.
It was true, of course, that the wife of
Representative Robertson from New
York had been guilty with the now in
surgent leader, but the telephone op
erator would not admit it. She knew,
but she kept the secret inviolate for two
acts, up to the third, and then the lady
admitted it herself.
The scene of the confession was won
derfully well drawn. The telephone girl
was on the point of going to jail be
cause she had refused to connect the
designing politicians with Impossible
newspapers when tire former wanted to
give to the latter the scandalous story
of the Honorable Matthew Standlsh.
Perhaps a well regulated newspaper
man might resent the idea that any
newspaper would not refuse to print a
story that would discredit a woman In
behalf of a political scheme, nor rise In
wrath at the notion that the "Asso
ciated Press was holding the wires open
for 'the lady's name,'" but the occu
pants of seats at the Columbia Monday
night seemed to think that the scheme
of the play might easily be worked out
on such a hypothesis.
However, after the first act was over,
tho brave little central girl measured
wits with the Hon. Mark Robertson,
the Hon. Jim Blake and other old line
statesmen, and then, after refusing for
the hundredth time to tell the name of
the woman who was registered at a
hotel five years before, the woman her
self entered the room and the
telephone girl from going to jail be
cause she had refused In the second act
to divulge the secret of a telephone
call. The said lady was—who do you
think? She was the wife of the Hon.
Mark Robertson, who was trying to
defeat the Hon. Matthew Standlsh by
digging up the ancient scandal in
which Matthew and her grace—the
present wife of Mark—had been in
volved five years before.
At the conclusion of the plot the
bravo little telephone girl and the son
of the arch grafter are united. The
said little central girl has done her
best to protect the marital happiness
of Mrs. Mark Robertson. Mr. Mark
Robertson has found out from his
spouse that she has been guilty with
the Hon. Matthew Standlsh, his
present opponent in politics and aban
doned the search for the name of the
lady who registered with the said Hon.
Standlsh at a given hotel five years
ago. Mark forgives Grace and the cur
tain falls on an universal peace—do
mestic and political.
Marjorie Wood assumes the role of
the central girl with so much realism
that one wishes she were on the line
when you call. James Seeley as the
representative from Illinois and Hugh
Dillman, as his ardent son, in love with
the telephone girl, were realistic fig
ures in Belasco's realistic production.

Suit Is Outcome of Dispute Over
Tidal Lands
OAKLAND, Oct. 15.—Selection of a

ble on the tidal fiats at the Dalton
