Vol. XX. BAKERSFIELD. CALIFORNIA, .MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1908 No. 47 The California!) Will Receive Subscriptions to Aid Bryan The campaign of Bryan and Kern must be financed by the people. Mr. Bryan says, "Let the People Rule." This Is a campaign for the people, and the people must pay the bills. Throughout the United States the Bryan press Is appealing for subscriptions to aid the cause. There are necessary campaign expenses that must be met, and the Democracy has no resources other than what it receives froirrtrTe people. > t The outlook for the election of Bryan brightens dally, but a political campaign Is costly, and the national committee Is in need of funds. The Callfornlan, at the request of the finance committee, will receive subscriptions, and forward them each week to the committee at Chicago. The Callfornlan will acknowledge these receipts as will the national committee.

MARRIAGE TIES ARE SEVERED BRYAN'S MASTERFUL J ,«! REPLY TO ROOSEVELT William Jennings Bryan has replied to Theodore Boosovelt. It is to be hoped every reader has peruse,! the bludgeoning, blustering, name-calling, personal effusion of t lie Rough Rider, and will compare it with the calm, forceful, dignified, dispassionate dispassionate reply of II,. ur.shly assailed men. He ap- the commoner. Mr. Roosevelt dealt with invectives. He spoke of "outrages" and "disgraces." Mr. Bryan discusses principles. He compares records. peals to reason. Mr. Roosevelt's assertions arc the uterances of the Man with the Club. Mr. Bryan's arguments are directed to the understanding.

I "I have never been informed of any charge that had been made against Mr. Haskell, conectlng him with the Standard Oil Company or with any other trust. I had known him as a leader in the constitutional convention of Oklahoma, and had known him as one of the men principally responsible for the excellent constitution which has since been adopted by a day to Alfonso Chicchl and Mariana Scotina, both residents of Bakersfleld and aged 34 and 30 years respectlely.

I had known his election to the governorship of that great young state by a majority of some 30,000; I had known that the constitution was adopted and that Governor Haskell was elected in spite of the efforts of your administration, and in spite of the speeches made in Oklahoma by Mr. Taft. A Poser. "You say that it was a matter of common notoriety Unit Mr. Hnskell was connected with the Standard Oil Company, i have a right to assume that if so serious an objection had existed to Mr. Haskell's election and had been a matter of common notoriety In Ohio, as you .say, Judge Taft woulil IS Kor the second time In little more than a week the Japanese pool hall on 20th street near L wns burglarlz- (1 last night. A quantity of tobacco amounting to $20 or more in value was taken uiul three slot machines were broken open. As to the amount of the loss frcai these not much is known. One of the machines belonged to McDonald and the other two to the Japanese proprietor. It is thought the three machines contained about $!>(>. Then- is not any clue to the burglars although they are undoubtedly the same that committed the former robbery circus night. They, entered the pool hall by breaking through one of the sky lights from the roof and jumping to the floor below. When the burglary was discovered last week, S. I. Washlta, the proprietor, barred both windows with Iron rods, but last night this protection was useless, as the men unloosened one of the bars and entered easily. (Continued on page three.) MOJAVE SENDS 3 MORE PRISONERS Constable Redd came to town yesterday morning, bringing In three short termers from Mojave. C. A. Peterson was the most serious offender. He must servo 180 days for hat- cry and In addition to the sentence he seemed to have pulled out of the LOCAL OIL IN HOT DISPUTE There Is another lively dispute on for the possession of Midway territory. The land involved is the northwest quarter of section 28 and is being claimed by S. P. Wlblo et al and Pat O'Brien, Judge Squires, \V. .T. Murphy and others. Last week O'Brien and his associates leased the land to Elmer Jones and Staurday when Jones, through his superintendent in charge, W. J. Murphy, attempted to put lumber for their first rig on the section they were repulsed by Wlble and some men hired for tb.6 occasion. Wlble Is claiming the land on desert entry while O'Brien and h'.S friends have a mineral location. Both claim that their title is secure. When seen today Mr. Wlble con' firmed the report of the dispute, but further than saying that he had put Jones' men and his lumber off and Intended to keep them off, he did not desire to discuss the cane. He would not talk concerning a possible suit. While Wlble seems confident that lie has possession of the property a report later this afternoon from the west side seems to indicate that Jones' men succeeded in landing the lumber. Yesterday about. 4 o'clock Murphy was organizing to go on tha property and the Impression Is that he succeeded. Shepherd Will be Here With Gee. Fred Williams Wednesday fight much the worse for wear. James McDonald and Peter Jenson, two able-bodied fellows, were arrested for begging. The former must serve thirty days and the latter five. Jenson is wanted for petit larceny and there is a warrant for his arrest after serving his five days' sentence. He is accused of stealing some articles from Charles Martin. Needed Medicine.

The I'ol- eras AFTER JSBAND Believing that she had stood all she could bear of the alleged wrongs of her husband, Mrs. Nettle Moses, wife of Charlie Moses, the shoe black at the Southern hotel, went gunnlg for her "old man" last even- Ing. At 7:30 she showed up at the bootblack stand with a big 38 gun In her hand, but before she was able to raise the heavy weapon the hunted husband had her by the wrists and Cap Mortensen was making tracks In the direction of the warring couple. Before Justice Thomas this afternoon their troubles were aired. The woman claimed she had been cruelly beaten an 4 secured the gun to get even with her husband. On the other hand Moses asserted his wife, who is a frail, sickly looking young woman, was a holy terror and made him look like a weakling In her grasp yesterday afternoon. He did not wish, to prefer charges against his wife, but said ho wanted to leave her, she to go lire way and he his way. The Judge has a rule that no one shall leave his office, after having been arrested for carrying a revolver, so the woman was fined $5, which George Washington, her brother, secured after a long hunt.
