mar rgoln for the comfortable chair* of
the lounge, whore cigars anU coffee
were served.
The program included addresses on
colonization, immigration, the location
of factories and industries; and plans
for interesting: the tourist.
M. H. Robbint, who declared that
since he has ceased to head the Com
mercial dub he occupies a positio
similar to the "e!der statesmen ,, o
fan. sounded the keynote of the con
nee when he said:
old philosopher has said tha
f who has studied Greek can eve
rulg-ar: I am living in hope tha
day will come when it can be aai(
that no one who has ever liyed in Cal
ifornia can be a knocker of anything
The spontaneous applause which
greeted this remark was the first in
dication that the hyperdermic injec
tion of "boost" was '"taking." There
after, however, there was enthusiasm
enough to satisfy the most exacting.
Robert Newton Lynch of the Cali
fornia development board in his ad
dress compared types§ of development
"The best service of the development
board." he said, "is the accumulation
of accurate and detailed information
covering the entire state. Such data
does not now oxist, althousrh constantly
in demand for home seekers in Cali
fornia. This sort of information should
be made available, and its gathering
should be conducted in a highly scien
tific manner."
Mr. Lynch explained the kinds of ma
terial required, the methods of collec
tion, systems of classification and
means of distribution.
'"The immigration commission" was
the subject handled by S. J. Lubln. In
part he said:
"In August, 1912, Oovernor John
son appointed a commission 'to ln
. »stigate the immigration problems
,it will be presented to us with the
* Miing of the Panama canal, the dis
tribution of the immigrants who will
come to this state thereafter, and su< h
other matters as may be necessary to
prevent the congestion of population
and the other evils that have arisen
through lack of foresight and care in
the eastern states.' Tn appointment. }
the governor asked the commission to
"report, at least in part, to the next !
legislature, so that wo may take such j
legislative action as may be essential.' i
"In a memorandum accompanying the j
appointment, the governor said: "I I
have asked five of those who have I
studied from every angle eastern con- !
ditione and immigration problems to

"Than these no better persons for the ]
work in hand could be found."
Charles H. Kendrick, speaking on
colonization, said that the bay district!
is not practicable for extensive colo- i
nization. because the land area is too
we!| settled and prices too high.
"Colonization." he said, "is more
logical for large, unsettled areas of
interior valleys. Thp reflex effect of
this settlement will properly compen- j
sate* merchants of the bay district.
"No set rules can be set down for j
i oloniza tion. for conditions vary with;

Big Presentation Last Even^
ing Almost Professional
in Character
Let tho shaft hurt whom it may. but
there is a committee belonging to the
Players' club that gave its first big
presentation last night, which declares
its willingness to read plays by local
writers and produce them. Mute ge
niuses with trunks full of manuscripts
have a chance for a hearing, and the
rr-afon T Inform them is this:
The Players' cluh will give their dra
matic babes a comfortable cradling
and will not bury any that are not
already dead. For the Players' club
exhibited its strength last night in Ger
hardt Hauptmann's gruesome drama,
"Blga." and played it so well that if
the dialogue in quarrels had Ler-n
speeded up a bit T would have thought
the performance Was professional.
Quite as reassuring to those who
believe the theater is an institution
and not a "playhouse" was the pre
luding presentation of tw" of th-; epi
sodes from Arthur Sehnltzler's Impish
comedy, "The Affairs of Anatole." This
Is colloquial drama and thus harder to
do thpn picturesque romantic tragedy
such as the Hauptmann piece demands.
But whether the play was chatty and
modern or rhetorical and classic, the
players acquitted themselves admir
ably before the fashionable audience
that packed the auditorium of the
Sorosis club house to the point of suf
focation. If the Players' club proposes
another session with the drama it will
be well to get a bigger hall.
. The star of evening was unques
tionably Mrs. A. W. Scott Jr., who
played the role of the Polish countess
in the Hauptmann drama. She has a
voice of rare beauty, which I am told
has been trained by a sister contralto,
Mrs. Birmingham. She has grace of
person and an Individuality that en
lists the attention. If she sometimes
sang her phrases it was a fault not
unmixed with good results, for the
tone was cadenced delightfully. Be
ing somewhat stubbornly reactionary
in the drama, 1 must confess that the
i play did not give me so much pleas-
I ure as the players. It was made up
lof rapine, murder, adultery and sud
den death. It was Poland in the sev
enteenth century and was quite as
"elemental" as Florence in the six-
teenth. The Countess Elga's atone
ment at last for her sins against her
trusting husband, who was faithful to
the king, was complete enough to sat
isfy the moralist who insists that a
play teach a lesson, but the hug« hor
ror of the plot made its unfoldment
doubtful entertainment.
However, Mrs. Scott surprised her
fripnds in the audience by the realism
of her behavior and the intelligence
with which she read her lines. She
has a nice discrimination in the use
of her voice and does not. like most
amateurs, give casual directions to her
servant with the same emotional en
ergy with which she defends the girl
when she is falsely accused of the
misbehavior of which the mistress her
self is guilty with a lover.
Dion Holm, in the role of the out
raged husband —the Polish prince—
sustained his characterisation with
dignity aii'i assumed with credit the
difficult attitudes and inflections of
rage, despair and grief. The part is
particularly trying, for it exploits
emotions not usually treated in prose,
but verse. Luclle Alsanson Smith, us
the mother, and Rowena Danhauer, as
the nurse, were effective in their
rdles; showing with the other princi
pal • and subordinates in the <a.'-t
a minimum 6f amateurish unfamiliar
ity with an audience- and a maximum
of ease and freedom.
!n the Schnitzler comedy Miss Paul
ine Hillenbrand distinguished herself.
In both pieces the stage management
of Hfginald Travers was admirable
The work of the Players' cUitl will
reward watching, and if the organiza
tion is in earnest about its intention
to produce local plays by local writers
there is afforded at once a hearing ,
for ;ill those plays that innumerable
persons have been writing to rhe about..
