DEMOCRATS SEEK
TO GET CANVASS
CASE REHEARING
Alameda to Be Taken as
Test in Effort to Get an
Authoritative Rule
for State
PLAN IS OUTLINED
AT CONFERENCE
Devlin Petition to Be Argued
in Sacramento Today for
Votes , Correction
A motion for rehearing the Alameda
canvass case, dismissed by the district
court of appeal, and subsequent appli
cation to the supreme court In a man
ner designed to get an authoritative
rale for the canvass of California elec
tion returns is the program agreed on
by the legal committee of the demo
cratic state central committee.
Chairman Henry Eickhoff and Thomas
Hayden of the democratic legal com
mittee held a conference yesterday, in
which Senator A. Caminetti partici
pated, Caminetti, as chairman of the
democratic state executive committee,
Ik directing the democrats watching the
canvass in the secretary of state's of
fice, and it was he who advised a juris
dictional demurrer to the petition filed
by Frank Devlin for a correction of the
Sacramento and San Joaquin county
vote?
The Devlin petition will be argued in
Sacramento today. The legal commit
tee of the democratic state central com
mittee probably will be ready to move
for a rehearing in the Alameda case
today and to go to the supreme court
immediately on the disposition of that
motion.
The purpose of the democrats' ap
peal to the supreme court runs to the
present controversy only in a secondary
way. Th% wrangle in Los Angeles, the
contrary opinions of two appellate dis
trict courts and the acts of canvassing
boards in different counties disclose
the fact that there is neither statute
nor Judicial law in California providing
a uniform system of canvassing or
strictly denning the powers of canvass
ing boards.
SINGLE TAX CRUSADER
HERE FROM AUSTRALIA
Edward McHugh of England Will Visit
Former Mayor Taylor and Then
Proceed Homeward
Edward McHugh, an English mem
ber of the united committee for the
taxation of land values, arrived here
yesterday on the liner Tahiti from Aus
tralia, where he has been for nearly a
year preaching the doctrine of the sin
gle tax. He Is returning to his home
in Birkenhead, Eng.
(He came by way of San Francisco
for the purpose of visiting former
Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor. Doc
tor Taylor was a friend of Henry
George at the time the latter,
then living in San Francisco, wrote
his famous work, "Progress and
Poverty." The principles set forth
by George, twenty years ago
have been embodied in the last
English budget, which was prepared by
Chancellor of the Exchequer Lloyd-
George, a relative of the father of the
single tax movement.
McHugh found Australia very fa
vorably disposed to the single tax. In
New Zealand, he said, they are putting
into operation an act passed last year
to take the place of an act that made
modified concessions to the single tax
principle.
Lloyd-George's budget, McHugh says,
is opposed in England only by the
classes that toil not, but who, under
present conditions, enjoy, like the lily,
a glory that -exceeds Solomon's.
McHugh may deliver a few lectures
here and expects to speak in Chicago,
where he has a number of friends.
"SUMMERING" IN WINTER
IS CALIFORNIA WAY
Rome Industry Leasme Chief Invitee
East to Real Resort, Where Life
Doesn't Pall
"Spend the winter 'summering , in
San Francisco," is the sentence with
which A. C. Rulofson, president of the
Home Industry league, concludes a cir
< ular letter he has sent to his eastern
correspondents, inviting them to come
west and partake of California's best
home product—its winter climate.
This letter is sent broadcast, in the
belief that it will attract attention to
San Francisco as a winter resort, where
one may hear grand opera sung in the
street on Christmas eve; see bathers
on the beach in January and straw
hats worn the whole year around;
where the shirtwaist is as common a
sight in winter as the sealskin jacket
or the sable muff In the frozen east.
"There are other places." he says,
'•where they have flne wftiter climates,
but they are off the beaten track. Be
sides, you get bored to death after a
week. You never get bored in San
Francisco, with its street and cafe life
after dark. Most winter resorts are
dead at & o'clock In the evening. San
Francisco is just waking up then.
There is life and joy here as well
as a balmy winter climate."

The Pacific Gas and Electric com

elaborate Thanksgiving dinner yester
day at the scene of their labors.
The occaeion was a dual one, for It

where it is proposed to dam the waters
and transform Lake Spaulding into a

gallons capacity.
There is a corps of about 450 men at
work, including engineers, draftsmen,
mechanics and laborers. Work on the
mile long tunnel through the rock lead

through the winter and, it is expected,
completed by next spring. The en

Opinions Differ; Some Say'Yes,'Some'No'
The Dictionary, the Turkey, Judge Graham and Others Express Ideas
Concerning it Which May or May Not Be Enlightening
What's money, anyway? Nobody seemed to know yes
terday, and what's more, nobody seemed to care. So long
as there was plenty of white meat and drum sticks and
bread sauce and cranberries and plum pudding to go round,
why worry about that horrid stuff called money, alias coin,
tin, kush, shekels, spondulix, filthy lucre, long green, cash
and other things.
There seem to be about as many ideas about money
as theTe are different kinds of money. And strange to
say, every one does not want It, even in this humming com
mercial center of the west.
'What's money?" It's a. simple little question* but no
two men In San Francisco answered the question in the
same way. Those who have money appeared to be no
nearer the solution than those who haven't it.
The doubts about "money" arose Friday morning when
The Call propounded the puszling little query after Attor
ney Samuel M. Shortridge started the rumpus by Averring
in court before Judge Thomas F. Graham that money was
nothing. The lawyer was arguing for an allowance of
$1,200 a month by the court to a wealthy client. The allow
ance was opposed by other heirs in the estate, and a
jocular remark by his opponent caused Shortridge to say:
The Centnry Dictionary: "Coin, or more
strictly speaking, current coin;
stamped metal that may be given in
exchange for commodities; gold, sil
ver or other metal stamped by public
authority and used as a medium of
exchange."

The Turkey t "Horrors, don't mention it.
Moneys the root of -ell evil. The
more people spend it on me the less
I like it. I always lose my head
over money. Like Shylock in the
Merchant of Venice, everybody ex
tracts a pound of flesh from me for
money. And it doesn't seem to make
any difference how much I cost a
pound. If it wasn't for money, I
would be wearing feathers instead of
brown gravy and cranberry sauce
these tragic holidays. Don't say
money to me."
Tons Kins; Chong, president of the
Chinese Republic associationt "Money
used to be round fcrass pieces with
square holes in them, but since the
revolution in China every Chinese
in the United States looks upon
money as one of the principal things
that brought us liberty from -the
Manchu dynasty. Money consecrated
by the blood of the Chinese under
General Li Yuan Hung will place
modern China in the forefront of na
tions and establish her as the lead-

Tax Collector J. O. IjOfvi "Money!
Don't mention it. Please pass me by.
The very thought of it makes me
weary. In the last six weeks during
tax time we have handled 25 tons of
it. It's the heaviest stuff in the
world. My arms ache still. Let's
talk about something pleasant. ,,
Isadore Oppenhelm, Pawnbroker*
"Money—that's why we have Thanks

Supervisor Thomas Jennings, Chairman
of the Finance Committee: "If it

Major Reid, Salvation Armyt "Money!
Truly, money of itself is nothing.
But what money can do: that's the
thing. Look on the work of the
Salvation Army; think of the hun
dreds that have been provided with
probably the first square meal in a
week. Although charity is broad and
noble, even the dispensing of charity
requires money; and for the aid of
the downtrodden and the down and
out money is a great boon."
Treasurer John A. McDongaldt "Money
makes me tired. So it would you if
you had to handle a few millions
every week. I count it by the sack
and move it in wagons. The more I
see of other people's money the more
I like my own. I would rather have
a nickel to spend than a ton of gold
to keep. Vote for amendment 8. It
means a raise for me."
Fred Belasco, proprietor of the Alcazar
theaterj Money in the theatrical
profession is the food on which the
"angel" lives. As soon as the food
gives out, the show closes and the
actors walk home. A theater man
agement would far rather see money
in the house than "paper."
BARBS AND OLYMPICS
FIGHT IT OUT TOMORROW
Clubs in Row as to Who Is
Eligible for Game and
Who Is Not
The Barbarian and Olympic club
football men put in some strenuous
practice yesterday at the stadium in
preparation for the annual club cham
pionship game, which is to be played
tomorrow afternoon at the St. Ignatius
grounds.
The forwards of both camps went
through the usual scrum routine, while
the back field confined their efforts
to passing, dribbling and handling of
the ball.
A contention has arisen as to the
eligibility of certain players. The
Olympic club men want to play Decius,
Sinclair and Brown of the Stanford
varsity squad, but the Barbarians ob
ject. The Olympic club commissioner,
Harry McKenzie, claims that as none
of these men took part in the big
varsity game, the men are eligible to
play with the club team. T-o this the
Barbs reply that they were on the var
sity squad and that there was an un
derstanding between the two clubs that
no men would be eligible to play in the
game who had not played at least two
games with the club teams during the
season, and that no varsity players
were to be eligible. A meeting of the!
contending parties will be held today
and an adjustment made.
An objection has been made to L. S.
Reading as referee of the game. The
referees' committee of the Rugby union
has appointed Reading for the game,
but it looks as though the clubs would
not agree to him handling the whistle.
PARK COMMISSIONER APPOINTED
Special Dispatch to Tb« Call
SAN JOSE, Nov. 28.—Gustave F.
Lion has been appointed a member of
the board of park commissioners by
Mayor Monahan, to succeed Victor A.
Hancock, who resigned yesterday on
account of hie recent removal from the
city to his new suburban home on
Alum Rock avenue, outside the cor
porate limits. Hancock had served
three and a half years as a park com
missioner, i
"This is a small question, this question of money.
Honor, probity, truth, integrity, even beauty, are some
thing; but money—pah. It is nothing. It seems foolish to
fight over such a thing as money."
However, up to the time of going to press there was
none, of whom the question had been asked, that seemed
inclined to part with any portion of the potent "nothing."
Many who were questioned yesterday showed plainly
that they differed with the learned Mr. Shortrldge. and
crassly indicated that they considered payday the biggest
day in the week.
We just simply asked: "What Is money?" There were
some strange results. One man put both hands in his
pockets and swore that he had Just loaned his last cent
to his father in law and that we were foolish to try "that
quick touch game" on a holiday, anyway. Another seize*d
his head in both hands and begged us not to mention the
word. Ho handled tons of It and loathed the heavy stuff.
Still another, a clergyman, took a view directly opposite.
Hβ insisted that money is the weapon with which the
battle of humanity and charity is fought.
One benighted individual thought money was the under
lying reason for Thanksgiving.

of accumulating it.

from the luxuries it buys, it is a

money is valuable is this: When

SptvUl Dispatch to The Call
NEW YORK. Nov. 2S. — Wine and
beer were used today Iβ extinguishing
a fire that threatened for a time to
Mveep through Stauchess' restaurant
and pavilion, one of the largest build
ings at Coney island.
The fire was started by* a lighted
match thrown among confetti. Almost
immediately the flames leaped to the
curtain, igniting the decorations.
Three thousand men and women
were assembled at the tables, and as
the cry was raised and the shaft of
flame jumped toward the ceiling every
body emptied the contents of their beer
and wine glasses on the fire. The
thirsty flames were quickly quenched.

magnificent jewelry store in the world.
Visitors welcome. 60 Kearny street.
