SORRY ri/IGHT OF FAIR.
Senator "Regan, in the controversy
Preceding the calling of the roll, said
that the bill would make a sorry
plight of the Pan am a-Pacific exposi

hot words In favor of protecting the
young people, and in answer Senators

declared that recent legislation looked
like it wa s being- aimed particularly
at San FVancisco and. in a rapid fire
of questioning that followed by Sen

RIGID CENSORSHIP
FOR THE "MOVIES ,,
SACRAMENTO, April 9.—A rigid cen
sorship of moving picture plays by a
salaried state commission with full
authority to reject any films lhat might
br> deemed objectionable <>n any of a
srorr of grounds, is provided iti a bill
by Senator Strobridgp that was re

moving picture men from Kan Fran

committee last night to offer their ob

guceeesful In obtaining amendments.
, nOMPROMISES IN
b "BLUE SKY" LAW
• • •
To prevent inflicting R hardship upon
the Fiiiai! corporations in California,
Ma\ Thelan of the railroad commission,
author of the "blue sky" law, an act
providing for the regulation, super
vision and licensing of investment com
ratlins, has suggested certain compro
mises to the original bill. These changes
uvp today in the hands of the commit
ler Ht Sacramento.
The Jan suggests that section 2 be
ected to the effect that any corpo
'Htion may apply for authority to issue
s^-uritiea and state that it has no in-
H tentlon of selling its securities to the
public. The commissioner thereupon
iy make a finding to this effect and
\\,p law will not apply to this particu
lar . orporatfon until the finding is
revoked. Should the commissioner
ascertain that the corporation is sell
«"tr its upcurities to the public its find-
Fate Is Undetermined
Operation Postponed
Mrs. J. V. de Lavcaga, who lies in critical condition in sanatorium as result
of accidental gunshot wound.
Ing shall be revoked and the license fee
returned.
In section S Thekin suggests that
no corporation have a right to sell se
curities in the state until the license
fee is returned. As the bill now reads,
violation of this section would forever
bar any corporation from selling se
curities !n California.
In the matter of corporations making
reports senii:inmially. as now provided
in section 10 of the bill, Thelan would
leave this to the commissioner.
HOUSE'S ATTITUDE
IS REAFFIRMED
RACRAMKXTO, April 9. —The lower j
house of the legislature reaffirmed to
day its attitude on the McDonald dust
tCM cement container bill, which it de
feated yesterday, refusing reconsidera
tion by a vote of 32 to 42.
Another prolonged session was held,
adjournment n<>t being taken until
nearly 6 o'clock, and as much of the
time was taken up in a futile attempt
to amend a bill which carried by an
overwhelming vote, it is believed that
the assembly soon will put into effect
stringent rules limiting debate. The
net result of the seven hours' session
today was two bills passed, one refused
reconsideration and one amended.
Assemblyman Shearer's determined
fiprht to amend Assemblyman Bowman's
t>l3l requiring packers and canners to
mark their packages conspicuously with
their own names, instead of allowing
jobbers' labels to be applied, as in the
case of canned fruit, was the cause for
a lengthy session today. The bill was
passed una mended.
Assemblyman Sutherland's joint reso
lution proposing to place upon the bal
lot at the next general election the
question of calling a constitutional con
vention, was sent back to the printer
upon the adoption of an amendment
offered by Assemblyman Harry Polsley.
Vvho found a technical flaw in the meas
ure.
SENATE BUSY IN
RECONSIDERATIONS
SACRAMENTO. April f>. —Reconsider-
ation of all measures upon which the
final vote is unsatisfactory to any
member, when such member complies
with the procedure necessary to bring
about a second vote, was established
as the policy of the senate today, and,
ac a result, the upper house is finding
it neceeeary to repeat Itself on nearly
every bill to which serious objection is
offered.
The loss of time occasioned by the
policy •was pointed out by Senators
Anderson, Butler, Kehoe and others,
who sought to resist the demands of
•'senatorial courtesy." but when it was
shown that no member who asked "the
privilege had yet been refused a recon
sideration a majority voted to resusct
late another bill that had gone Into the
discard.
Most of today was spent in "recon
sidering.'' The Caminetti anti-injunc
tion btJl, which lost by a narrow mar
gin last week, whs debated, but no
action was taken. Senator Wright
was granted a reconsideration of his
proposed constitutional amendment re
lating to eligibility to hold office, and
the authors of two bills voted down to
day gave notice that they would mo,ve
for reconsideration tomorrow.

any evidences of infection, and this
period of time must elapse before the
seriousness of the wound will become
apparent.
"No operation has been made in an
effort to remove the bullet," Doctor

there were two operations are untrue.

Charges Against Frank

Accused Official Denies He
Was Party to Any
Wrongdoing
CALL BUREAU , .
SACUAICENTO HOTEL.
Saeram«ato, April 0.
Secretary of State Frank O. Jordan is
fighting hard to offset the charges that
the state board of control has made
against him that incorporate a long
list of moneys collected from sources
tha£ the board" declares should have
been profitable to the state.
Mr. Jordan this afternoon said that
he was sure he could show- that Ins
clerks had not taken any money that
was not in the line of legitimate earn
ings. At the morning session of the
board testimony was introduced to
show that in the matter of the Los
Angeles auto-cycle police squad de
mands had been made that indicated
that the secretary of state's office had
been used to promote the business of
what was , known as the "Golden State
Auto List company." This, District At
torney Fredericks of Los Angeles, ac
cording to the testimony of Herbert
Drew, superintendent of the auto-cycle
squad of that city, said was evidence
of a combination to give "private lists"
out from the secretary of state's office.
(OMPAXV HAD EXCUSIVE LIST
A letter was Introduced in evidence
to show that Mr. Fredericks, at the
instigation of Drew, had made applica
tion to the secretary of state for a list
of motor vehicles, and that he could set
no reply. Later it developed that the
auto list company was the only con
cern that could furnish such a list.
Jordan made a vigorous defense on
the line that former state officials had
allowed employes to make up lists tog
insurance companies and auto dealers. ,
but the board came back at him with j
a statement that it had evidence to
absolutely disprove his assertions.
Jordan, in a statement to The Call.
said that he was sure of his ground
and that he had done nothing that
others had not practiced for years. He
said:
CLERKS MAKE MONEY
"T have allowed my clerks to make a
few dollars s-ide money with not the
slightest idea of doing anything wrong.
I have not profited by the selling of
the lists one cent, and so far as the
lists are concerned, any persons who
are accredited can come Into this office
and make them out from the official
records.
"My clerks are on the job all the
while, and they frequently work over
time. I notice that there are employ**
of the governor and other state officers
who are drawing salaries for putting in
time outside of this building. My son.
when in Los Angeles, acted solely on
his own volition, and the amounts he
made, if he made anything, were made
outside of his duties and with much
trouble and expense to himself."
Chairman John Neylan of the board
of control was just as emphatic in
declaring Jordan in wrong as Jordan
was in defending himself. He said:
"Mr. Jordan has collected, so far as
we have investigated—or at least his
clerks hve collected —nearly $6,000 that,
in my opinion, should have been turned
into the state. There is more to come.
AL.I/EGES POSITIO.V INDEFENSIBLE
"Mr. Jordan may try to excuse him
elf in the matter of these collections
but we are not through with him. His
position is absolutely indefensible. It
is impossible that he should have al
lowed this thing to go along without
knowledge of what it meant to him.
lie is morally responsible, to say tho
leapt.
"We have, in our belief, evidence to
show that no other secretaries of state
have ever collected fees under the same
circumstances as has Mr. Jordan or
those whom he must stand responsible
for."
The letter sent to the Los Angela
district attorney, Mr. Fredericks, in
reference to the list of automobiles
that could be furnished by the Golde )
State Auto company bears the date 62
April 13, 1012. and asks $100 for serv
ice, with promise of furnishing supple
mentary lists.
A letter from Mrs. Anita A. Brewer
of the secretary's office was submitted
as evidence to show that Mrs. Brewer
had written to District Attorney Fred
ericks saying that certain lists of
motor cars were not obtainable at that
time.

WILL OF ADMIRAL
FIGURES IN TRIAL
Lost Testament of Rear Ad
miral Joseph G. Eaton Gives
Estate to His Widow*
PLYMOUTH. Mass.. April 9.—The will
of Rear Admiral Joseph G. Eaton, filed
for probate today, leaves his estate,
with the exception of $600, to his
widow, who is awaiting trial on the
ehajge of having murdered him. The
value of the estate is not given.
Peculiar interest attaches to the will
because it is expected to figure in the
trial of Mrs. Eaton. The latter is
named as executrix without bonds.
While no estimate of the value of the
estate is given, it is supposed to con
sist mainly of the home and farm at
Norwell and life insurance policies.
Joseph Parker Varnum. a nephew, is
given |600, half of which is to be used
for the erection of stones at the grave?
of the admiral and his first wife ani
for the perpetual care of the lot.
Had Mrs. Eaton died before her hus
band, her elder daughter by an earlier
marriage, Mrs. June Keyes, would have
received $5,000. the balance of the
estate with the exception of the Var
num legact and trust, going to Dor
othy Ainsworth. sister of Mrs. Keyes.
At the inquest into the death of
Admiral Eaton there were reports that
he had made a second will. Dorothy
Ainsworth said that her stepfather had
intimated to her that he had made her
the principal beneficiary. No such will
has been found.
