BULL MOOSE WILL STAND ALONE Governor Johnson Says Pro gressives Will Not Merge With Republicans SACRAMENTO, Nov. ll.*-The horns vf the moose are still solid and there'll Je no merger with the G. O. P. So *ays Governor Johnson, chief of the progressives in California, who has lust returned from the east with the Ighting program for next year. California will have a straight progressive ticket next year, and the progressives will meet next month to formulate plans for the 1914 elections. There will be no amalgamation with the republican party until the regulars accept all the principles of the bull moosers. Governor Johnson will remain neu tral if Heney and Rowell go after the Cnited States senatorship or if any two other progressives aspire. ! Whether he will be a candidate to > succeed himself, he says, will not be | taken up until the end of the year, j PROGROMVLS MICH A LIVE Of the party, Governor Johnson I •aid: "The progressive party is very much ' alive and rapidly forging ahead as the dominant national party. "California, in so far as I can influ ence the situation, will present a pro- i gressive ticket. If two of our pro- j gressives are candidates for the same office, of course my position would be that of neutrality. "The progressive party is the dom inant party in the nation today be cause It Is the dominant thought po litically in all men's minds. No man dare run for office any place in the Union unless at least he pretends to 1 be progressive. "Nothing better illustrates this than the state election in New Jersey. The republican candidate Insisted that he was for Roosevelt last year and was a progressive and thus obscured the real issue there. "In my opinion, there will be no Amalgamation with the republican party until the principles of the pro gressive party are accepted entirely and until the present leaders of the republican party nationally, like Barnes of New York and Penrose in Pennsylvania, are wholly eliminated from politics. "It is just as necessary for the people in the nation for all time to eliminate these men as It is for New York city to relegate Mr. Murphy and Tammany hall to obscurity.

Addicott, principal of the Polytechnic high, who says hobbles and paint worn by girls show "dissipation side," just now rampant in school life Polytechnic High School Principal Says "Aping the Ways of High Society" Shows "Dissipation Side" Foolish dressing, aping the ways of "high society" and the introduction of lines of thought not conducive to the best interests of their scholastic ca reers are the tendencies of too many ! of the high school girls of the present day, declares Principal J. E. Addicott of the Polytechnic high school. The allied evil of these, among the boys of the school, is cigarette smok ing. "There is a sort of a 'dissipation side' to high school Just now," said ' Principal Addicott. "manifested by cigarette smoking among the boys, while with the girls It takes the form of superficiality. "They have a desire to carry what they see of 'high society' into high school, where It is out of place. So cial affairs are all very well, but not here. NOTHING REALLY WICKED "There is nothing really wicked in what they do; nothing even bad; but it is just oujt of place. "Some of these girls color their eye lashes, some color their lips or cheeks, many use powder, but I think there is less of that to be found in my high school than in any other tn town. "One thing I have discovered Is that the use of these cosmetics is gener ally against the wishes of the moth ers. "The mothers say they do not like it. but there seems to be a lack of control on their part." The natural instinct of the young girl to add to her charms was not condemned by Prinicpal Addicott. "It is the right of every woman to make herself as attractive as possible; in fact, it is really her duty to be as beautiful as she can. But she must do it in the right way. "Not one of the girls In this school THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1913 "Girls who paint never wear a flower; they have superficial idea of adornment" who have used paint in any form has ever been seen by me wearing a nat ural flower. PASS IP NATURAL BEAI'TY "You see that they have merely the Idea fif superficial adornment .and not the real love of beauty. "Do not think that 1 am condemning the girls of my high school, because I think nearly all of them have life career motives animating them. It Is simply their youth expressing itself in the ways of the present times." For the clothes of the moment Pro fessor Addicott had not many kind words, declaring that they are too conspicuous. "When a girl gets into a car with a skirt so hobbled and cut so low that the men all sit up and look at her, you know things are not as they should be. POWDER AND PAINT COMMON NOW "Fifteen years ago a girl who would use powder and paint would have had har character questioned, but that is not the case nowadays. Too many of the nicest girls get the cosmetic habit, but it is not appropriate for school girls." "GOVERNOR'S GIFT" BY ST.

MUST TAKE CASH OR STOCK Depositors of California Safe Deposit and Trust Company Face Alternatives The depositors of the defunct Cali fornia Safe Deposit and Trust com pany are facing the alternative of ac. cepting a cash dividend on their de posits of 3 1-3 per cent, payable Jan uary 2, or taking as their quoto West ern Pacific stock at $10 per share, an advance of $2 a share over the pres ent market. At the time the court order was is «ued declaring a 3 1-3 per cent divi dend Western Pacific stock was val ued, fairly the court declared, at $10. Since then it "Vias steadily decreased until yesterday morning $8 was the price asked, a quarter of a point higher than it was Saturday. Frank F. Symmes, receiver for the bank, said this morning that he put the proposition squarely up to the de positors, who were undecided as to whether to take their cash or the stock. CHANCE OR CASH "I tell them," said Symmes, "that there is no market for Western Pa cific and that unless they wish to take a chance on it going up, as the rail road increases its earnings and pays Its assessments and interest on its bonds, they would better take their cash dividends. We have 39,700 shares of Western Pacific on hand, of which 600 shares have been subscribed for up to the present time. That plainly shows the attitude of the depositors. "It is true that some time ago we were offered as high as $30 a share for Western Pacific, but many of the depositors were unwilling to accept that figure, believing the railroad would increase its earnings by leaps and bounds. "The court has ordered that the stock be issued at $10 per share to those that want it. and I am power less to change that price." PAYS NO DIVIDENDS A well known financier said yester day: "The time the offer of $30 per share was made was the time for the stock to be sold. "Now the stock has no value as a dividend paying stock, nor will it have until the road is able to earn more than enough to pay the interest on its debt. "Last year Its net earnings were only $1,400,000. The bonded debt of the Western Pacific is $'.0,000,000 first mortgage bonds, $25,000,000 second mortgage bonds and $16,000,000 in notes —a total debt of $91,000,000. "There is no chance of the stork having an interest paying value until the road has a net earning capacity of more than $4,550,000. This fact should be known and appreciated by all the depositors who consider ac cepting Western Pacific stock in lieu of cash. "There is a remote possibility that the stock may have an Increased value at some time, If it is kept in tact, but not if it is dissipated. THINKS CASH BETTER "Certainly, every depositor of the defunct California Safe r>epof.it and Trust company owns the stock If It Is retained by Receiver Symmes. It Is beyond my comprehension how any depositor can gain by accepting the stock In lieu of cash at $10 a share, when it does not earn dividends and has no chance of earning dividends for many years to come." Samuel Rosenheim. representing the Depositors" association, said that he was convinced that Receiver Symmes was administering the af fairs of the depositors fairly and that he was doing the best for their in terest* that was possible.

EASY TO DARKEN YOUR GRAY RAIR You Can Bring Back Color and Luster With Sage Tea and Sulphur When you darken your hair with Sage Tea and Sulphur, no one can tell, because it's done so naturally, so evenly. Preparing this mixture, though, at home, is mussy and trou b'esome. For 50 cents you can buy at any drug store the ready-to-use tonic called "Wyeth's Sage and Sul phur Hair Remedy." You Just damp en a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. By morn ing all gray hair disappears, and after another application or two your hair becomes beautifully darkened, glossy and luxuriant. You will also discover dandruff is gone and hair has stopped falling. Gray, faded hair, though no dis grace, is a sign of old age, and as we all desire a youthful and attractive appearance, get busy at once with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur and look years younger.—Advertisement.
