AVTI.CLIMAX TO ROW
The arrest and removal of Caminetti
from the senate floor was the anti-cli
max to a row amounting to a riot
■without a parallel in the history of
California. It may result in a civil
suit for damages against Sergeant at
Arms Joe Coghlan. and it has already
resulted in the introduction of a reso
lution condemning the action of the
lieutenant governor and a demand for
a rule defining his powers.
The row, which lasted for two hours.
■""as precipitated by a repudiation of
th<> alleged "gentlemen's agreement"
between Senators John Bunyan San
ford and Lee C. Gates over the Sanford
resolution indorsing the six year presi
dential term and United States Senator
John D. Works' advocacy of the one
term constitutional amendment.
I»fTS SENATE HI SXARI,
On Thursday Gates got the senate
Into a snarl by moving that Sanford's
resolution be tabled. He made that
motion without consulting the recoer
nized leaders of Uμ senate, who knew
that the "gag" involved in a tabling:
motion had not been employed in the
senate for 20 years'.
If he had consulted them they might
have told him that the application of
the table, rule would give the demo
crats the chance to play politics that
they had heretofore sought in vain.
After a two hour struggle on Thurs
day Senators Boynton and Wright
pulled Gates and the senate out of a
hole by getting an agreement to send
the resolution to the committee,
amending it to suit the majority and
bringing it back today for discussion.
SANFORD WON'T AGREE
This morning Gates sought to get
Sanford to agree not to force a situa
tion that would compel the senate to
vote for or against nn indorsement of
T'nited States Senator Works. San
ford refused to make such an agree
ment.
Gates, to insure against any debate
touching Works, moved to lay fur
ther consideration of the matter on
the table and the pyrotechnics were
loosed.
Oamlnett! got into the debate with
voice and both arms.
Gates raised a point of order on him.
*\ hen, Caminetti insisted on-discussing
the point of or<le4" f-ieutenanf Governor
Wallace ordered him into his seat.
"T refuse to take my seat," shouted
Caminetti. "I have a right to discuss
this point of order and I shall insist
on my constitutional rights "
SHOUTS ARE EXCHANGED
Caminetti and the lieutenant gover
nor exchanged shouts of defiance and
command. Senators Wright. Ourtin.
Juilliard. Sanford, Cartwright and
Shanahan were all on their feet shout
ing points of order and denunciations
in competition with Gates, who had a
few points of order of .his own, and
lieutenant Governor Wallace, who was
using voice and gavel in a vain en
deavor to quell the disorder.
He managed to restore sufficient
quiet to make heard his threat to have
Caminetti seated by force and to ar
rest him if he did not subside.
DEFIES LI El TENANT GOVERNOR
"I will not sit down. T have a r'ght
to speak. I have not surrendered the
floor, and I defy you to arrest me."
Fhouted Caminetti, running a few steps
down the aisle.
The lieutenant governor had or
dered the sergeant at arms to seat
Caminetti "with all the at your
command" several times, but the ser
geant at arms and his assistants had
fought shy of putting their hands on
the obstreperous democrat.
Then the lieutenant governor lost
his self-control. Hβ ordered the ser
geant at arms to arrest Caminetti and
remove him from the senate. Evi
dently that was what Caminetti had
been angling for. He walked off quiet
ly enough and submitted with only a
wee small protest to restraint in the
sergeant at arms office.
RIOT THEN REXKWED
The disappearance of Caminetti was
the signal for a renewal of the riot.
Curtln. Juilliard, Shanahan and Cart
wright were on their feet denouncing
gag rule or shouting "gag" from their
seats. Wright added to the confusion
by moving to adjourn and then with
drawing the motion.
Curtain demanded that no vote he
taken until the "senator elected by the
people and deprived of his constitu
tional rights without authority of law"
had been returned to the floor. Sanford
demanded a. call of the house, which
■would have brought'Caminetti back.
President Pro Tern Boynton got the
lieutenant governor's ear long enough
to explain to him th<» nature nf th<> hole
he had let himself Into. Wallace asked
Sar.ford if he wanted Caminetti to re
turn. Sanford replied that he de
manded his return. The lU-utenart gov
ernor then announced that he had
caused the arrest of Caminetti, but a
moment later ordered that he be re
leased from arrest.
GIVEN HIS LIBERTY
Caminetti was given h)s liberty and
Gates' motion to table was carried. The
democrats served notice that they
would use the tabling motion to make
trouble to the end of the regular ses
sion. Subsequently Gates announced
that on the second day after recon
venting he would call up the Sanford
resolution and permit the fullest de
bate.
Just before adjournment tonight
"Wright Introduced a resolution con
demning the notion of the presiding
officer, and calling upon the committee
on rules to report a rule clearly de
fining the powers of the lieutenant gov
ernor in maintaining the decorum of
debate.
AITHORITV IS EXCEEDED
i It is conceded by all the parliamen
tarians that the lieutenant governor
exceeded his authority in having Cam
inetti removed from the senate and
that f'aminetti has an action for dam
ages against the sergeant at arms.
Carainetti declared tonight that he
was not ready to say what course he
•would follow, beyond the positive state
ment that the fight was not over.
The democrats all say that the
tabling of the Sanford resolution has
established a precedent that will jus
tify them in a fight to foreclose de
bate upon every measure broight up
ft lor passage .at the second . lialf of the
*sion.

Certain Line
. SACRAMENTO, Jan. 31. — The first
step toward the creation of the pro
posed state board of administration,
which is to take over the management
of all state institutions except peni

CUPID'S FOE IS MARRIED AGAIN
"My Case Is Different, ,, She Says
"Hilda Davenport" Changes
Mind When "Right ,,
Man Asks Her
Assailant of Nuptial Knots
Thinks Circumstances
Alter Cases *
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
NEW YORK, Jan. 31. —Do circum
stances alter cages? They do.
Mrs. Joseph Hilda Sampson Owsley
ought to know.
As "Hilda Davenport," Mrs. Owsley
consistently and persistently wrote
against marriage ever since she ex
perimented with it and the experiment
ended in the divorce courts.
Here are some of the hard things
she wrote against the state of matri
mony:
"Marriage itself has become the per
fectly good and legitimate excuse
against love and happiness."
"Under existing conditions avoidance
of children is surely a part of wisdom."
"As to remarriage, what does it
hold for divorcees? How in the course
of human nature can they hope for
happiness?"
"Oh. the cold, pale dawn of hymen's
morning after when consequence, the
fool's teacher, has arrived as always,
too latp."
"As well take note as to whom you
marry—marry whom you please and
$"oii shall find you have somebody else."
"Could we but begin at the end, mat
rimony would- soon f.e a lost art."
Then Fate came to her again in the
person of H. Bryan Owsley, a young
American diplomat, and they were mar
ried Monday.
Now Mrs. Owsley has this to say
about marriage:
"T believe that neither woman nor
man can know true happiness outside
of marriage."
"Every married couple should have
children, as they are the surest mes
sengers of happiness."
"Why should not a divorcee be hap
pily remarried? Personally T am con
vinced that the best of my life awaits
me."-
"Surely the delights of matrimony
are cumulative, sweeter tomorrow than
today, and hare nothing to fear from
time."
'•Murh reflection and years of firm
and solid friendship are logical bases
for an ideal match."
"Surely the day of one's golden wed
ding is the happiest in one's life."

SACRAMENTO HOTEL,
Sacramento, January 31.
A sta**» registrar of teachers is pro
posed by Senators Blrdsall and Avey as
the means of putting fne school teach
ers' bureaus or agencies out of busi
ness in California.
A bill introduced late today by Sen
ator Avey provides for the registration
of all teachers by a registrar who is to
be appointed by the superintendent of
public instruction.
The registrars records are to include
a card index covering every teacher
and every teaching post in the public
schools. Unemployed teachers may,
upon application, be placed on the un
employed record. To teachers on that
record the registrar must mall a list of
all vacancies and full information con
cerning them.
The qualification conditions prerequi
site to the registration of teachers and
the system prescribed, it is believed,
will protect both teachers and school
boards and at the same time leave the
teachers' commission agencies and the
book concerns out In the cold.
