The companies. of Which the Standard Oil company, the Associated > Oil, the General Petroleum and the . Transportation are the four most powerful, were cited to file their rates and regulations with the railroad commission not later f*"lhan September '4. "So far, only the Standard Oil company has complied. Several days ago the Associated Oil company filed suit in the federal court alleging the recent law, which went into effect August 10, to be unconsti tutional. Judge Dooling granted a ! temporary restraining order. According to Mr. Elliott, the next jnove of the Associated will be to plead for a permanent injunction against the state attorney general's office and the railroad commission to keep them from enforcing the law. "We are prepared to show that the great oil Industry in California, com prising a business worth more than ; $40,000,000. a year, Is in the hands oi < a monopoly which is acting In re straint of trade," said Mr. Elliott this | morning at the Palace. "We also know that the oil com panies are going to make the fight - of their lives to avoid the law which, ; if enforced, means that the small pro ducers .will be able to sell their prod uct at a profit, instead of a loss, as has been the case for years."

Foreign Scientists Coming To Learn Method of Restoring Hair Noted Visitors to Study Discovery of Prof. Migge of San Francisco WITHIN the next month San Francisco will be host to a party of the most dis tinguished European scientists who ever visited America in a single party. These visitors will come to visit the Migge Labora tories here and to study the re cently discovered Migge method of restoring fallen hair and remedying other hair troubles by eliminating the bacteria which, as science has known for more than a generation, are responsi ble for all ailments of the human hair from dandruff to baldness. The scientists, whose party will in clude many whose names are famous in the world of scientific research, will first be the guests, in this coun try, of Thomas A. Edison at his labo ratories at East Orange. N. J.. and from there will come direct to San Francisco, upon Invitation of Profes sor Migge, and here they will be given full demonstrations of the "Migge discoveries and put in Intimate touch with the processes by which the noted bacteriologist, formerly of the University of Berlin and Stan ford university, haa solved the hair problem—the prevention of baldness and the restoration of hair that haa been lost. The visitors will be the guests of the Migge laboratories in the Call building here for a number of weeks and upon their departure will be prepared to extend the Migge treatment into every portion of Ger many. France, England and Austria. There has been no scientific discov ery in recent years which equals in its Importance to the entire human race, the discovery of the San Fran cisco bacteriologist who has found the way to not only prevent the com ing of baldnees, but, in the majority of cases, to actually restore hair that has been lost. The medical world has searched fruitlessly for many years to find a way to restore hair, but every research has led only to one conclusion, that any method which would restore fallen hair must first deal with the bacteria which, by infecting the roots, hollow canals and follicles of the hair, destroy it. No method was discovered by which these bacteria could be destroyed without destroying the hair itself, un til Professor Migge, In his laborato ries at the University of Berlin, Belle vue college. New York, and Stanford University in California, began the researches which finally disclosed a method of doing this with the as sistance of nature Itself. The announcement of the Migge discovery, made exclusively in The San Francisco Call July 13, has at tracted the attention of the entire scientific world to the Migge labors.- MISSION CONCLAVE FOR EXPOSITION Pageant Illustrating Prog ress of Christianity Prob ably Will Be Presented Missionary workers from all parts of the world are to be entertained in San Francisco In 1915, plans being already under way for a Woman's international Congress of Missions from May SI to June 13 of that year. The actual convention work will last two weeks, but features of mis sionary activities will be maintained during the entire exposition, and it is probable that an allegorical pageant illustrating the progress of Christian ity in all times and nations will be arranged as a climax to the finishing days of the congress. It is expected that all denomina tions will be represented and a com mittee is being formed of Interna tional missionary workers to spread Interest. Mrs. Mlndora Berry-Goodwin has been chosen president of the local committee to prepare for the con gress, and the other members are: Mrs. N. E. Gallaway of Healdshurg, vice president; Mrs. H. M. Tenny of Piedmont, vice president; Mrs. J. H. C. Rohlfs, recording secretary; Mrs. A. L McLelsh. Mrs. M. Leech, Mrs. G. J. Oehrll, corresponding secretaries; Mrs. M. ,R. Churchill, treasurer. LOSES DIAMOND AND SEES THIEF GET IT Mrs. Detrick of 1909 Jackson street lost a valuable diamond pin yester day while returning from church. In Van Ness avenue she saw a man pick up an ohject from the sidewalk and attempted to stop him. The fellow, however, eluded her. The pin was valued at $100. Friedrich Migge Tories Jn the Call building here. While Professor Migge, who is one of the foremost bacteriologists and patholo gists In the world, was at first some what criticised for allowing the work of his laboratories to be advertised publicly, scientists who gave the mat ter serious thought after having read the Migge report to his society, the Bacteriological Society of Berlin, aft erward congratulated him for adopt ing publicity as a means to give the world the benefit of his discovery in stead of allowing it to be burled for perhaps a generation in the Interior of the university laboratories from where only the knowledge of the treatment, and not the treatment it self, would have been distributed had he followed the course he followed with all his previous discoveries in the field of science. The professor's policy of giving his discovery publicity first, and then be ginning the direct distribution of the treatment, has now brought to him the commendation of the entire pro fessional world, which has watched the results of the discovery with keen interest. And yet the San Francisco bacteriologist has not limited the In troduction of his treatment for the hair to his own laboratories here, but he has given the fruits of his dis covery to the world"—inviting all sci entists who maintain laboratories equipped* for its distribution to in vite the public to receive it from them. The treatment prescribed by Pro fessor Migge Is individual in each case, the bacteria in each sample of hair submitted to him being Isolated, cultured and its characteristics studied. The treatment is then pre scribed for application at the patient's home, which will eradicate the bac teria, invigorate the hair roots and. where nature will make It possible. LANE WELCOMED HOME IN TRIUMPH Secretary, After Initial Re ception, Retreats for Day to Brother's Ranch Secretary of the Interior Lane, who is making a tour of the country studying the reclamation and con servation questions, is spending today on his brother's ranch at Morgan Hill lp the Santa Clara valley. Met at the Oakland mole, where he arrived yesterday afternoon on a be lated train, the secretary was es corted to the San Francisco side by Mayor Rolph, two committees of prominent citlsens and a delegation from the Iroquois club. On this side scores of other per sonal friends were waiting to greet the cabinet member, who is making his first visit home since his appoint ment. The Municipal band was also on hand to aid In the welcoming. Replying to Mayor Rolph's address of welcome, Secretary Lane said he had come home to see "the old boys whom he had known so well." With reference to Hetch Hetchy the secretary asserted that he had done everything possible to help Ban Cisco in its fight for the water sys tem. "I am glad that the Hatch Hetchy bill seems about to pass con gress," he said. The secretary is accompanied by his secretary, H. A. Meyer, and his son, Frank Lane. After his reception here Mr. Lane went to his brother's home in Berkeley, where he was Joined by Mrs. Lane, who has been in this vicin ity for a week. This morning the secretary left for the Santa Clara valley, accompanied by his brother, George Lane. Wednesday morning he will return to San Francisco, apartments having been reserved for the party at the Fairmont. In the court of the Palace hotel, where covers will be laid for 700 men and women, a banquet will cause a regrowth of hair. In many cases, of course, the hair roots al ready have been killed by the bac teria, and in these cases the visitors to the laboratories are told, quite frankly, that science can do nothing —that the treatment which would produce hair for a person whose hair roots are healthy will not grow hair where nature has removed the neces sary life from the hair roots. This frankness of Professor Migge, who speaks with all the knowledge of science, haa protected many vis itors to the laboratories from the useless application of "hair tonics," by giving them the knowledge that no matter to what lengths they might go no hair oould be brought back to them. On the other hand, many vis itors who had lost hope of ever hav ing their hair restored, or who had thought baldness inevitable, have been shown a quick way of ending their hair troubles. In each case a dem onstration of the bacteriological method Is made, and each visitor to the laboratory is shown the bacteria in his or her own hair, and Us action made plain. It Is these processes that are to be shown the scientists who have been Invited by Professor Migge to visit him here, and the knowledge of the new treatment wijl be well worth the trip across the ocean and the time spent here. The visitors all are former associates of Professor Migge in his bacteriological work in Europe before he made his home in Califor nia and opened his laboratories here. The Migge laboratories In the Call building are open to the public, and all who are suffering from ha}r trou bles are Invited to visit the scientists there. To those for whom the scien tific treatment holds out hope, the visit will be a memorable one—and those for whom the Migge treatment can do nothing, will be told so and they will be shown, by demonstration, why hair can not be restored to them. The laboratories are open dally from 10 until 6:80 and Sunday mornings, Advertisement. be held in Lane s honor Wednesday evening. Thursday he will be a guest at a Commercial club luncheon, and Apollo I Player Piano Four Reasons Why the j Apollo Player Piano Is the Greatest Instru- j ment in the World jjjjj Like the musician, the Apollo is the only Player Piano which touches down on the keys. The Apollo is the only Player Piano containing a motor which runs and rewinds the roll without pumping. The Solo Apollo is the only Player Piano which accents the melody so per fectly that its playing can not be dis tinguished from manual playing. L The Solo Apollo is the only Player Piano which can instantly omit the mel ody and play the accompaniment only, |j| and also transpose into eight different keys. Investigate all other player Pianos, for comparison will show the Apollo the one correct Player, and its music is as nearly human as has ever been con ceived.
