It'' wont do to simply sit here and talk. We mast work. When primary day comes around every member here should be out early and vote and then get others to vote. We must work hard and not let up until he is back in the position which he has filled with so much credit." JUDGE SMITH. Great applause followed the address of Attorney Snook and then police Judge Smith was called upon for a speech and said: "Next Tuesday is primary day in this ward. We have always been Mr. Mitchell's friend in this1 ward, and we are not going to fail him now. We have work ahead of us. Urge your friends and let every man get out and see all the men he knows. I have a great admiration for Mr. Mitchell and I will promise; for one, to do all in my power to aid his renomination and election. But we must all work. There is not a member here who but has some influence. We want you to exert this, and if you do this the result will take care of itself." COUNCILMAN ELLIOT. councilman cnioi was tne next one to address the meeting and said: "We are assembled here tonight to endorse Mr. Mitchell. We have done this in a loud an! vehement manner. When a man has been elected to office and served the people well and wants office again. It Is little enough that a grateful people can do to place him there again. The pay does not compensate him for the time and labor he spends. The emoluments are not such that he retires from office for the rest of -his upon his earnings. He must still work and SWEET THINGS that are baked are among the many palate pleasing, life-sustaining, strength -giving articles it is our province to supply cakes, pies, charlotte russes, chocolate eclairs and goodies of several sorts. Have we ever had the pleasure of serving you in this line? No? May we ask for it now? IMPERIAL HOME BAKERY T. DORGAN, Prop. 641 Eleventh St. Phone John 181 968 Castro St. Phone James 606 SAN FRANCISCO, August J. Gen eral George Stone, Chairman of the Re publican State Central Committee, has nipped in the bud a nice little scheme to give er-Senator S. C. Smith of Kern an undue advantage over senator M. I Ward of San Diego, for the Congressional nomination in the Eighth district. This scheme was to have the apportionment for Congressional delegates based on the vote cast for Congressman Daniels at the lafet election instead of the vote cast for Governor, which the State Committee has decided should be the basis of representation. This would have de-priyed San Diego county of two delegates, which would of course have reduced Senator Ward's strength to that extent. General Stone has written to" the chairman of several district committees that he has been informed by the Secretary of State that a petition for calling a Congressional convention was not received within the time pre scribed by law, therefore the delegates chosen to the State convention "will constitute the Congressional district convention in accordance with thfe call Issued by the State Central Commit tee. General Stone adds that these delegates must meet at the place for holding the State convention for organtza-tio after the State convention has passed upon thfcir credentials. This shatters a clever scheme to sgive Smith a snap nomination. DEMOCRATIC FACTIONS LINE UP In the Democratic political field the rival chiettans, Gavin McNab and James H. O'Brien, are lining up their respective forces for the general en gagement at the primaries next Tues day. In every Assembly district of San Francisco each leader has filed a tick et, but the assertion is made in both camps that the tickets were prepared by the party leaders in the several dls trlcts without any pressure from head quarters. James H. O'Brien has established campaign headquarters on the parlor floor of the Grand Hotel, and Is surrounded by a large staff of workers and advisers. At O'Brien's headquarters the declaration is made that many well-known men of, high standing are lending their support to the Democratic League. It is said that the banner of the league is borne by Livingston Jenks, Garret W. McEnerney, W. H. Alford, John J. Barrett, John George Gallagher, William Humphrey, Ed Scully, Chas. J. Heggerty, John Gleason, John 0nim, Stephen Costello, Joseph K. O'Donnell, William A. Breslln. Dr. John Klngwell. John F. Mullln. Dan O'Cal-laghan. Frank Kaufman, William T. Kearney, Charles O'Bryne, James Cronin, John W. McDonald, Harry Creswell and D. M. Delmas. The Democratic State Central Committee will move its headquarters from the California Hotel to the Bishop building, 645 Market street. More commodious and centrally located accommodations without Increase of rental are the causes of the change. WAITING FOR THE GOVERNOR. While waiting for Governor Pardee's return the politicians are speculating as to whom he will name prison director to succeed R. M. Fitzgerald, whose term has expired. The. Governor will also be called on to appoint two members of the State Board of Library Trustees, one to succeed Dr. Thomas Flint, deceased, the other to succeed W. C. Van Fleet, whoso term of years expired February 28, 1904. It is expected that the Governor will also appoint a major-general of the Na -tional Guard of California. It is said that Brigadier-General Muller will be promoted and then be retired at once wltti the rank of major-general. The same honor will be accorded to Brigadier-General Warfleld, who will go to the retired list with the tank of major-general. Thereafter the real appointment to succeed General Dickinson as division commander will be announced. NOTICE! Pommer-Eilers Music Co. have removed from 473 Twelfth street to 1075-1077 Clay street. If you're thinking of buying a piano, you should give them a call. The pianos and terms are the very best obtainable. It's Pommer-Eilers' way. MAN FROM MEXICO DELIGHTS EVERYBODY Last night the production of "The Man From Mexico" at Te Liberty Theater was witnessed by an audience which i nsize taxed the accommodations of the immense auditorium to its utmost. The: piece moved with remarkable smoothness, and every telling feature was greeted with applause. There was not weak. performer in the cast. This was extremely gratifying, because about 700 people had come especially from Alameda for the purpoae of enjoying themselves. It was universally admitted that they had succeeded in attaining the purpose for which they came. The last curtain dropped pretty Late owing to the interruptions caused by the frequent ap plause. The theater entrance was beautifully decorated with flowers and American and California nags in honor of the guests from Alameda, many of whom were Native Sons and Daughters. A bear flag was also hung in an appropriate olace on the atace in one of the scenes and its appearance aroused enthusiasm among the auditors, The officers of Alameda Parlor who arranged for the party are: Past president, E- J. Probst; president. Charles Rock: vice-president, A. T. 8ousa; sec ond vice-president. W. M. Walkop Jr. third vice-president, S. Hyams; marshal. Herman tsolte; recording secretary. A. V. Fisher: financial secretary. T. Rose: treasurer, Louis Fischer: trustee, H. M. Pond. "The Man From Mexico" will be repeated every night this week and will be worthy of full houses on each occasion. The Second Ward Republican Club, tlHI'Ifmnir enrinraari th nf Supervisor John Mitchell at an enthusiastic meeting held in Milton Hall, Saa Pablo avenue and Twenty-eighth street last night and promised him! their votes and' their hearty support. It was no half-hearted body that assembled at the meeting to do a boss' bidding. Well known public men and hard working wage earners filled the hall, and tonight a meeting of the young men of the district is to be held at 1939 Market street at the corner of Thirtieth to form a Mitchell Club John Mitchell was In the hands of his friends last night and they gave htm a Iftyal welcome. There were no dissenters and a feeling of unanimity pervaded the entire audience. From the sentiments expressed, which came free ly and voluntarily and without preparation from persons in diverse walks of life. It was evident that the people of the Fifth Supervisorial district are satisfied and pleased with the record of their representative and will return him to his position on the Board by an overwhelming majority, Expressions of confidence In his business sagacity and Integrity were everywhere expressed and he was given the assurance of that assemblage In unmistakable terms that every irian there was for him, to vote and work for his renomination and re-election. PUBLICITY. Wide notice had been given of the meeting that was to be held as there was to be a reorganisation of the Second Ward Club for the purpose of arraigning itself behind the Mitchell banner. "When all had gotten Into the hall that space would permit, the meeting was called to order by W. E. Griffith, who stated that oitfng to the removal from the district of the president of the club and the expiration of the terms of office of other officers, the first business would have to be the election of a new set of officials- C. E. SNOOK. CC Snook arose and said: "I take great pleasure in placing In nomination for president of this club the name of a young man wno is weu Known in mis neighborhood. His home is here. While he is not a great talker, he is ah enthusiastic worker and those are the lrlnA nf nmnl wa want at th tt this organization. I place In nomination the name of A. H. Marks." xne mention 01 Ataxics name evoicea loud applause and as there were no other nominations, A. H. Marks was declared unanimously elected president of the club. RETURNS THANKS. Upon assuming the chair the newly i elected president took occasion to thank the members for the honor they had bestowed on him and then declared that the next order of business would be the election of a vice president, For this office Councilman Elliot placed In nomination W. E. Griffith and. he was unanimously elected. A. A. Rleser! was then elected secretary and Police Judge Mortimer Smith was elected treasurer. A constitution and by-laws were then adopted and when this routine work had been- disposed of Edward Jost took the floor and said: JOST SPEAKS. "As this is a Republican Club, formed for the purpose of furthering the election of the Republican candidates for National, State and municipal elections, I have a friend here, who shall, be such as long as life shall last, who is a candidate for re-election to an office which he has filled faithfully and well. He is a Republican and I want to bespeak for him the support of this organisation. He is known to you all and for the past eight yeafs, has represented, the residents of the Second Ward and the Fifth district as Supervisor. I mean Supervisor Mitchell, and I want him to address this club." There was a rousing reception given the name of Mitchell whea it was men tlooed and as soon as the applause had subsided somewhat he made his way to the platform, where he delivered the fol-" lowing MR, MITCHELL SPEAKS. Supervisor Mitchell spoke as follows, being frequently interrupted by applause: "Mr. Chairman and fellow-citizens of the Second Ward: From the bottom of mr heart I thank you for this enthusUs tie reception. We all know the ability Of the Second Ward to respond whenever 1U Interests are concerned. "For fifteen years I have been your TEA -The Knowledge Book is a great book for a little on; answers many troublesome questions. Yar greo mmrm ywrstMvy Ujm Wk things ahput President Roosevelt, but my official record stands. I have done my best to be fair to all parties and to all interests, and, when there are many parties to please and opposing interests, this, you may know, is not an easy task and some disappointments are sure to come. I could not do more, I would not do less. COUNTY INFIRMARY. "Along with my' fellow Supervisors, I have been criticised on account of the management of the County Infirmary Let me tell you that the condition and management of that institution has called forthXavorable comment from. eveYy visitor and is known throughout the State, and has added to the prestige of Alameda county. ROAD EXPENDITURE. A "Again, criticism has been made of the amounts expended upon the roads. Let me say to you that the roads of this county are the delight of every man who has produce to haul or who travels for recreation. They have made Oakland the focus for both business and pleasure of all the country this side of the bay. Is that a good thing? If so, I have no apology to make in this connection. The Board of Supervisors have realised that this is a great-county with greater possibilities and they have sought to make it flrst-clsis in all its management and the best for all public conveniences. NO DISCLOSURES. "The management of the county's af-fajrs duriiig my terms have been subjected to review by the Grand Jury. Recently public attention has been pointedly called by an ever-alert press to the fact that the Grand Jury was about to call this or ihat member of the board, including myself as president, before it and an expose has been looked for by the sensationally inclined; those who hoped for it. But, although these Grand Juries "'were composed" of men of high character and well known standing, no startling disclosures have been made, for the Simple reason that there were none to make. 5 It costs money to run this county, and although mistakes may have no ground for charges of corruption could be found. GRATIFIED TO SEE NEIGHBORS. "I am, therefore, especially gratified to see my neighbors come out and fill this familiar "old Milton Hall to its utmost capacity and with one voice repeat their declaration of loyalty to me and express their confidence in my ability and devotion to the public If this shall result in my continuance in the of fice I now hold at your hands, I can only promise that I will serve you to the best Of my power and with that knowl edge gained from experience and the satisfaction springing, from the source of popular approval. I feel that this power (o satisfy you will have been greatly in- increased." (Loud applause.) At the close of his remarks Supervisor Mitchell was given a flattering ovation. which was only stopped by the hammer ing of the president's gavel. MR. MARKS. Attorney wasen called upon by President Marks for a speech, and in response said: "I can say that I heartily endorse the applause given here to Supervisor Mitchell, but I want more done than that. I want to see this club take action and put this down in the records. I want to make a motion right here that this club come out boldly and endorse the man we think so much of. and I now move that the Second Ward Republican Club endorse the candidacy of Supervisor Mitchell for renomlnatlon at the coming primaries and do all in its power to secure his election at the polls next November." The motion was seconded and unanimously carried, and then continuing his remarks, Mr. Snook said: FRIEND FAITHFUL AND TRUE, am proud of the reception given my friend. As he has already told you. he has been criticised, and unjustly so. I have held public office, and have come m' contact with the same sort of petty criticism. I also know John Mitchell as a friend faithful and true. He has labored hard for the Interests of his constituents and the welfare of the district hm represents and the county generally. There' are no such, roads anywhere in the State of California as in Alameda county," and one" of the members of the Board of Supervisors who has most consistently" stood for their Improvement is Supervisor John Mitchell." COUNTY INFIRMARY. "I want to call your attention to A another thing of which the county may feel Justly' proud and" for which he has been unjustly criticised, and that Is the County Infirmary. There is no such up-to-date institution in the State. It is a can never be recalled. NO DETRACTION. "We have no criticism to make nor do we wish to go into a campaign of de traction. We have -nothing' to say against the gentleman who Is to run against Mr. Mitchell In this ward for nomination at the hands, of the people of this district. Eut he does not live in the Second Ward and how he can hope to ask and get the support of this ward under these circum stances I do not know. "There 1s one thing more 1 want to ask at the hands of this meeting and that is the endorsement of Assemblyman Bliss for renomination frcm this Assembly district. He has dons good work for the people and he wants that office again and I now move that it is the sentiment of this club that Mr. Bliss be given the nomination from this district." The motion was enthusiastically car ried and the meeting then adjourned in order to give those present an opportunity to sign the muster roll. Speeches were also made by ex-Senator Earl and ex-Judge Stetson and others. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVORERS. The next Alameda county quarterly convention of the Christian Endeavor Union will be held on Friday, August 12th, instead of the 13th. as was at first planed.

Stockwell, Mt Britt as "a co-stair'amlTA SfroBg" cast. will depict bow politics- arot dtrrf "and domestic affairs; rurin 'jthSorwes't play, "The Johw North." Stock-well is a natural-born, He. is naturalness itself and he 'cannot do otherwise than make people laugh. His expression, tone of voice, walk and gesture, as well as personality, are siifl-estive nf that 1np-ti1ai-lt n.Vi4nt, always brings a laugh. Even when standing on the street informally disv cussing affairs with a friend or an ao quaintance he will invariably draw a crowd. It was the late Charles H. Hoyt, the famous playwright who fe ferred to him as the "man who has made millions laugh," and Charles Frohman said Stockwell is "king 1 of American character has morever figured conspicuously in the story of the stag for over generation. He was for years associated with McKee Rankin, then, in the full glory of his fame and. prime, and for a season he managed Nance O'Neil, the Oakland girl, who has risen to the very heights of fame as the world's tragedienne. Stockwell built the Columbia Theater, in San Francisco, which, during his management, was known as Stockwell's The ater. There is not a city, town or vil. lage on the North American continent In. which Stockwell's name is not a household word and a synonym for comedy of the quaint kind. The lat unaries n. noyi was bo uiien wun Stockwell's peculiar genius that he wrote three ot his most successful plays to suit him. They were "A Texas "A Temperance Town" and "A Midnight Bell," and In all three Stockwell created -the leading role with singular success. He toured the. country- In them and even to this day his name in theatrical cirles is inseparably linked to that of the great playwright In giving to the country class of productions which are typical of American comedy character. Stockwell will appear for eight nights and a prize matinee, beginning next Sunday, August 7th. The seats are now on sale at 15; 25, 35 and 50 cents RIGHT HARVEY BROWN'8 VIEWS AS TO 8EIZURE OF VESSELS ON HIGH SEAS. The following has been sent to THE TRIBUNE by Attorney Harvey Brown: 'The present war between Russia and Japan is liable to raise serious questions betwen Russia and- the United States if the former adheres to the claim promulgated by her as to what goods are contraband and liable to seizure. By the law of nations, arms and munitions of war alone are liable to seizure and condemnation. But. at the very threshold, another most serious question arises. How can Russia know that given vessel has contraband goods aboard? Has she the right to seize a vessel and cargo because she suspects that the cargo con tains such articles? Is the vessel or a neutral power to be subjected to a search in order to ascertain if she has such contraband goods? And, furthermore, is the Government of the United statM nrpruu-ed to admit the riKht of search? Will it sit idly by and allow the seizure of vessels and cargoes or its citizens because a portion of the latter Is contraband under the pretenUons of Russia, but Is not contraband under the law of nations? Under that law, Russia has the undoubted right to declare and enforce (if she can) a DiocKaae or tne Japanese ports and thus prevent the landing of the articles declared by her to be contraband and may seize and con demn vessels and cargoes attempting to run the blockade, and in no other law ful way can she do so. sne nas no right to "overhaul and search the ship of a neutral on the high seas. The deck of every American vessel is as sacred on the high seas as any acre of American territory, and any Invasion of it by a Russian officer under any pretext is an nttttnim arainst the Government of the United States. The commerce of the country, and especially that of the Pa- rifte coast, is now In treat danger De- causs of the monstrous pretentions of Russia. And now li the time to forever settle the questions that are forced upon the Government and people or tne coun- try." 1 Detained." Santos-Dumont's determination not to return to this country is said to be partly due to the presence of a rich and pretty American girl In Paris, Most men will agree bim that an helresahln at home Is worth a whole flock of airships in St. Louis.
