SAVANT FINDS NEW
TYPHOID VACCINE
U. C. Professor of Pathology
Reduces Fever and Nausea
and Increases Efficiency
Dr. Frederick T. Gay, professor of
pathology in the University of Cali
fornia, once associated with Bordet,
the eminent Pasteur director of Bel
gium, and recognized as one of the
best authorities on immunization, has
worked out a new method of typhoid
vaccination.
Fever and nausea attending the
older method are greatly reduced;
the efficiency of the treatment is
raised; and the time required for
treatment la diminished several days.
The vaccine and directions for its
use will be supplied free by the uni
versity to any physician in the state.
The university Infirmary itself is now
giving the treatment at the rate of
150 persons a week. The records col
lated show the prevalence of the dis
ease. Of the last freshman class it
was ascertained that one out of
every nine had had the malady.
Doctor Gay conducted his experi
ments at the university. He is mow
continuing his work to make an even
more potent and less severe treat
ment.

FEVER FATAL
10 FAMOUS
ATHLETE
California Shot Putter, Hero of
Olympic Games, Succumbs
to Two Weeks' Illness
Ralph Rose, champion shot putter
of the world, died this morning at
11:30 o'clock at McNutt hospital
from typhoid fever, after an illness
of two weeks. He was a native of
Healdsburg and made his first ap
pearance in the athletic world in
1903, breaking world's records in the
weights ever since. He was 28 years
old.
Rose had been practicing law for
the last four years and was a partner
of Bert Cadwalader.
A slight illness of a week's dura
tion suddenly developed into typhoid
October 1, an<Phe was taken to the
hospital.
He leaves a sister, who lives at
2036 Sutter street.
UNMACK'S APPRECIATION
OF ROSE'S GREAT WORK
WILLIAM UNMACK
Ralph Rose, California's native son
giant, who has done more to bring
the state of California before the na
tions of the world as a producing cen
ter of world's athletic champions, is
dead. The death of the big hearted
big man is an international event
which will be deeply regretted in
every country of the world.
The death of the champion shot
putter takes from this country a man
who has been in the public eye for
more than 10 years and for all that
time has been acknowledged as a
world's champion. A giant in build
in every particular, Ralph was also
a giant in his performances. His
right hand and arm brought many a
world's record to the Golden state,
and his series of world's record
breaking feates dates back to 1901,
when he was a schoolboy at Healds
burg high.
WON FAME AS SCHOOLBOY
Even as a schoolboy he won world
recognition for himself and has been
an International figure ever since. At
that time he set new world's figures
in both the 12 pound and 16 pound
shots, and has kept ott breaking his
own marks ever since, no one else
being in a class with him. He holds
these marks and many others today
and they will stand for many years.
Rose has represented his country
since 1904 in Olympaids and won his
events. Last year at Stockholm he
lost the rlghthanded shotput to Pat
McDonald of New York by inches, but
came back the next day in the two
handed event and won- his laurels by
feet.
Rose was popular with every one.
His apearance in a track meet always
meant a hearty welcome. He was a
sportsman through and through.
ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP
Always willing to help a lad ac
quire the art of shotputtlng, he was
glad to show the knack. Even in
competition he would point out his
opponents 'faults at the risk of being
beaten. He has done this on many
occasions, and In a handicap event at
Shell Mound last year his coaching
of one shotputter lost the event for
Rose. He took his defeat in good
part and was the first to congratulate
the victor. He was a good loser and
an equally good winner.

VOTE OF
43 TO 14
JLLBANT, Oct. 16. —Governor 9cd*»r
has been tentatively found guilty upon
three articles of Impeachment ant af
eight brought against him. The etlsar
five have not been sustained. This
semiofficial report followed the ad
journment of the court of Impeach
ment at 1:11 o'clock this afternoon.
Th« official vote will be taken this
afternoon in open session. The three
articles upon which the tentative
agreement rendered a verdict of guil
ty were:
Article Xo. I—Charges that the gov.
ernor made a false campaigns report
to the secretary of state.
Article >o. 2—Charges that the gov
ernor committed perjury In making
the statement.
Article Xo. 4 —Charges that the gov
ernor advised Duncan W. Peck to
swear falsely before the Frnvrley
committee.
A verdict of guilty upon any one o*
these articles is sufficient basis for
the removal of the governor. It was
learned that the vote on article 4
stood 43 to 14 for conviction. It is
also reported that Judge Cullen was
the only member of the court of ap
peals who sided with the governor.
The decision reported In executive
session made it practically certain
that the court would remove the gov
ernor.
After the court passed upon the ar«
tides it was decided that the resolu<
tion inflicting punishment should car
ry with it removal from offlce, but not
disqualification to hold any other of
flce.
The final vote on the fate of Sulzei
was sharply foreshadowed yesterday,
when 39 members of the impeachment

should be convicted on the first ar
