Vol. XX. BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER li, 1 in is. No. 83 ROOSEVELI MAY BE SENATOR WASHINGTON, Nov. G.— That President Roosevelt may be the successor of Senator Platt of New York Is considered by many Washington people as now probable. It Is declared that they have assurances from the President himself that he would not be entirely averse to the acceptance of a senatorial office. His general attitude was that he did not want to enter the senate because as a member he might antagonize his successor, but he does not feel that way about Taft. It Is sugested by some that his absence In Africa would relieve his friends of embar- assment In urging his candidacy, an embarassment that might exist were he In this country when the matter was to he determined. Capital Will Not be Moved While the returns on capital re-! movel are alow, that matter having I been bunched with the sixteen various amendments voted on last Tuesday, the returns on which are still nebulous, enough is definitely known to warrant the announcement that capital removal has been voted down by a vote of more than two to one. Three counties In the state appear to have voted In Its favor, San Francisco, Alameda and Santa Clara. Even the other bay counties are against removal, as witness Napa's vote and Sonoma's.—Sacramento Bee.

The wives of the two prisoners who have been constant attendants, were present today. Morse s.it like u stoic and heard hla sentence with scarcely a tremor of the eyell-.l. There was no shadow of a doubt that the "little man" has iron nerve. Curtis also showed lack of emotion. Mrs. Morse, hitherto "unruffled, collapsed at the fateful words, buried her face in her hands and sobbed convulsively. She was led Into the ante room, where her husband soon had her In'her arms and consoled her. Mrs. Curtis, who has been ill, fainted, and would have fallen had she not been supported. A large crowd had hurried into the court room last night to hear the verdict. Morse and Curtis stood before the jury while Foreman John Elder was reading the verdict, and their wives sat near them, leaning forward In tense attitude to catch every word. "We have agreed upon a verdict in the case of both defendants." said the foreman in a subdued voice. "On tin; charge of conspiracy we find them not guilty."

Harrison, Whig . audlilate, and so on down the long 1 line of Whigs and Republicans. In '49 he came to California and on July 4th, 1800, came to this county, where he has since resided, filling tha office of Justice of the peace for twenty-five years, always advocating sue* measures as were for the betterment of humanity, givng of his time and means unstintingly, till of late yeara deafness and the loss of the use o( Ills lower limbs have kept him from active work. He feels great satisfaction that his vote was counted in for such men LABOR WILL FIGHTjjpMPEItS WASHINGTON, Nov. G.—Samuel Gompers, head of the American Federation of Labor, declares that he will be ready to answer all attacks on him because of his recent course in politics, when the Federation convenes on next Monday. Gompers says he Is not a candidate to succeed himself, but that he will acept the office if elected. It is expected that a hot fight will ensue over the future course of the Federation with reference to politics, and it Is probable that a definite policy in that regard will be adopted. 'Among many labor leaders there Is much dissatisfaction over Gompers' advocacy of Bryan, and the coming) session will probably he a warm one. SAILORS BATTLE WITH STORM FOR SIX DAYS , . . sponded to requests for remarks by laymen and Mr. E. M. Roberts welcomed the new pastor on behalf of the city In a characteristically humorous strain. The welcoming speeches were responded to hy Rev. Paul In a happy manner. The evening was brightened by two solos from Miss Barber, accompanied on the piano by Miss Burnhatn Hunt, by an Instrumental solo by Miss Gloanna Ball and by two excellent readings by Professor Slmcoe. Refreshments were served and at the close of the pleasant evening the assemblage dispersed with heartiest appreciation of the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Davln. Tin- popularity of newspapers in a community may lie JutUol I-;- llv r-v,-in--- of the peor>' n when those papers advertise to do tilings. The Californlan announced before election that it woul.l make public the returns on Tuesday night nt the Bakersfield opera house. There were other efforts along similar linen, but the people responded to the Califomtan's In- vltiition. The opera house was filled and hundreds of people came and went, while the main body of the crowd stayed until late at night—until all doubt was dispelled, and all curiosity allayed. WJscwhere n similar offorl m"t with but little response. There is a lesson In this to advertisers. What paper do the people read? Whose invitation was agreeable to the public? Which did the people accept? A newspaper that can assemble the people in response to an Invitation of its own, can benefit you, Mr. Merchant, In like manner.. Tuesday night It was a matter of readers, and of newspaper popularity. The sumo attributes are large factors when It comes to doing advertising for a business house. *v *\ * N * * * * * * * * * * * * + * + * * * * * * * * HORTICULTURE CAR I TO START ON MONDAY.
