In opening the meeting he said: "While ws are not living In an age of mlracie or of Aladdins with magic j lamps, we have during the past twenty-, four hours witnessed a near-miracle. 1 The sp.endld building which we see be-i fore us has arisen as if by magic and to t'nlon Labor is due the credit: Not only have you contributed your time, which Is your capital, but you have done more than this in purchasing the materials used in the building's construction. It has been a noteworthy demonstration of your patriotism and t another evidence that in the great struggle In which we are now. engaged Union Labor Is performing its full and Important part. The noise of the ham--rs, saws and other tools used In your craft are mors eloquent than any words of presentation that might be spoken. These are days of action and not of words."

Heney for jrovernor. following the drafting of resolutions endorsing Woolwine, and reported to have been adopted at a meeting at the Hotel Oakland Saturday. Some members of th club declares that the organization was already on record for Heney. Mrs. F. G. Harrison, president of the club, announced today that the club had not had a meeting Saturday and had not endorsed anybody. ItKSOIX'TIOXS ;iyex 01.T Resolutions endorsing Woolwine as the "true and logical man for governor" were taken to newspaper offices by Mrs. J. T. Montgomery,, secretary of the club, and the notice accompanying the resolutions bore the following introductory paragraph: . . I "The following resolutions, endors-' Uig the .candidature of Thomas Lee Woolwine for governor, were passed unanimously by the Women's Democratic Cluha of Alameda county at their meeting in the Hotel Oakland on Saturday, August 17, 1918." The gathering at the Hotel Oakland Saturday was in the nature of an Informal reception by a number of Democratic women of Oakland to Mrs. Woolwine, wife of the candidate for the Democratic nomination, .according to members of the club jwho do not favor Woolwlne'g candidacy, and was not a meeting of the I club itself. In this connection Mrs. Harrison, president of the club. said: "There has been no recent meeting of the Women's Democratic Clubs, and consequently the announcement that we have endorsed any candidate can not be correct. I by the forty or more members pres- en- I was not present at the reoep- tlon to Mrs. Woolwine Saturday, so I can not say what happened. I was told some resolutions were read jar adopted or something. Whatever was done was not the action of the Women's Democratic Club, however, as no meeting of the organization was held Saturday." Mrs. J. T. Montgomery, secretary of the club, said today that various persons had assumed to speak for the oreanlzation without authority, and stated that the resolutions she an officer of the club, and could not call a formal meeting. It was ,not a Democratic club, but Just a meeting for Heney." Mrs. Harrison, president of the club, said today that she purposes calling a meeting In the near future, to decide whether the club shall endorse any candidate, and who that candidate shall be. WOOEWIXE ItESOErTTOXS The resolutions which Mrs. Montgomery said were adopted at the gathering Saturday follow: "Whereas, of all the candidates seeking the suffrage of the voters of this state, at this coming election, one, and only one. genuine Democrat Thomas Lee Woolwine stands for real democracy, and unwavering support of the principles and pocy of America's and the world's Democratic President. Woodrow Wilson; "No man of all the candidates for governor but Thomas Lee Woolwine dare claim with truth and consistency, allegiance to sound democratic principles and party, "We, therefore, call upon all who believe In, and profess, democratic principles, to rally to their standard bearer, In 'support of the Moses of our day. Woodrow Wilson, who U now leading this world through the Red Sea of blood, devastating the fair lands of Belgium, Franco and Italy; and here In California, that man Is Thomas Lee Woolwine.

At the produce commission market this morning the Chinese fruit neddlers were conspicuous by their absence, and up and down the streets In the Chinese quarter wtnuow Diinus remained up during the day and there was little activity in the business houses. GOVERNMENT MAY ACT. That the Federal government may- take a hand in the unsettled condition of affairs as involving the Chinese tongs has been intimated from San Francisco, the police across the bay announcing that unless quiet is restored and the differences Between the warring factions straightened out that the army will be asked to patrol Chinatown. As the slaying now stands rthe score is said to be even between the Suey Sings and the Lew family. The latter is a faction in the social and commercial world of Chinatown and not giving to waging warfare, it is claimed by those who have studied the situation. For that reaaon an alliance with some fighting tong may be made, and that is where the Blng Kongs might reasonably Btep In, as they are the ancient enemies of the Suey Sings. The working class, typified in the vegetable vendors, who go out each morning from the produce market into the residence districts, are said by the police to belong mainly to the Suey Sings and the Bing Kongs. PEDDLERS MENACED. While the war is threatening these erstwhile quiet peddlers have adopted the course of discretion and are taking no chances of the score being advanced from one side or the other before the peace negotiations are opened. Information received by the police from Chinamen high in the councils of tho tongs is to the effect that it Is not believed the present trouble will be settled at tonight's meeting. From the time of the meeting it will be either bloodshed or compensation for tho killings of a week ago, when three men were the victims of gunmen's bullets, two in San Francisco and one in Oakland. That the Lew family demands too great a tribute from the Suey Sings is said to be the reason for the doubtful attitude of the counselors. hai is doind Fltchburg Social and Improvement Glub, 7227 East Fourteenth street.

Heroic work by three policemen saved fourteen persons seven women, five children and two men whose lives were endangered by a fire which destroyed the contents of the two-story brick warehouse of the California Rice By-Products Company, at 3S0 Brannan street, and partially burned two frame lodging-houses adjoining it. Among those rescued were Sydney Bozeman, his wife and Ed Kern, all negroes, who were asleep In one of the frame lodging-houses and were dragged from their beds by the police.

The policemen who did the rescue work were Officers W. F. Glecson, Sheehan and Cagney.
