"W ILIf 1GSZ1E CENTER Directors in the "California Voice," published by colored Oak laand residents, were heard before Justice of the Peace Harry W. Pul-.clfer late yesterday over a suit in volving 149.50 in witch manipulation of the affairs of the paper through the board oftdirectors was charged on both sfdes. The principals in the sufeare E. Marshall, once a candidate for county . clerk and editor of the paper, as plaintiff, against E, Ware, one of the directors. Marshall is suing Ware for money he claims Ware owes for advertising in the paper. Ware is contesting on the ground he should receive half rates as a director and beside the paper owes him money advanced by him to the extent that the paper really owes him a difference of 29 cents. Asked how It was he had brought tin suit Instead of the publication, Marshall said the claim had been assigned to him. "Who assigned the elalm to youT" he was asked. "The business manager," replied Marshall. "Who is the ISuslness manager?" - "I am," was the reply. . Then it developed that while Ware was out of town, Marshall's friends on the board of directors had voted to bring the suit against him. Marshall declared that Ware had later assembled his friends on the board during his absence and had them vote to dismiss the suit. Then it was found that the by-laws of the organization were lost and it could not be agreed what action could be taken. - Judge Pulcifer continued the case until November 15 with orders for ,all the directors to be in court to thresh out the question as to whether the suit waa brought with proper authority. $153,111 Collected For County Taxes Rushing business Is being done In the office of Edward T.

Emeryville and the other titles of the Eastbay are on their way to become the manufacturing center of the entire " region west of the Rockies, comprising, eleven states, and containing a population of nearly 8,000,000, President John S. Drum of the Mercantile Trust Company of San Francisco told the members of the Emeryville Industries Association at a luncheon here yesterday. The country west of the Rockies Is now for the first time In history capable of becoming a self-sustaining region, with not only the necessary resources, but with a population large enouph to Justify and make profitable the manufacture within its own borders of all basic products. Drum said. Not only Is it now possible for the West to support itself from Its own manufacturers, but this course is being made necessary by increasing railroad rates, the speaker declared. WATER AND RAIL AID. , Because of the favorable combination of water and rail transportation, climate and other advantages to be found here, the great industries, and the branch establishments of nation-wide concerns, which are arising in the West to supply this huge unified market west of the Rockies, are to a large extent locating in the Eastbay, Drum said. What the Eastbay neeas to ao in order to brlnff about the cen tralization here of the bulk of tne iast night he said he was not in manufacturing that Is to supply ' sympathy with any great prepared-the entire West is to develop its x neBg that Europe would be mad own manufacture of pig Iron, cot- , an(j m0ney-poor by the end of the ton textiles, woolen textiles and j war ..

Oct. 25. (By Asso-f elated Press.) A series of history-making letters, describing In detail the American war cabinet and giving an intimate picture of Wood-row Wilson as he appeared while presiding over the secret meetings of his official, family, was made public yesterday. The letters, written by the late Franklin K."Lane, secretary of the interior in the cabinet of President Wilson from 1913 to 1920, have been collected and edited by his widow, Anne Wintermute Lane. The correspondence reveals, among other things, how the President frequently lost patience with the tremendous problems confronting him, and how at other times discouragement crowded him to such a degreei that he was prompted to turn bitterly upon his advisers when they failed, to agree with him. The letters give a description of Wilson's attitude on preparedness before America enteredthe war; tell how he regarded the 'proposal to arm merchant ships, describe his opposition to anything approaching the "code duello" spirit at a time when the United States was neutral, and then, when great questions were pressing for decision, tell how he encouraged his cabinet to talk of trivialities while he went along on his own counsel to solve the huge problems lacing his administration. Vfcrf' "The' President said he didn't wish' to see either side win for both had been equally indifferent to the rights of neutrals," Lane wrote to his brother on February 17, 1917, commenting on a particularly animated cabinet discussion. PREPAREDNESS VIEWS. On the subject of preparedness, even a few months before the-United States entered the war, Lane quoted President Wilson as being "not in sympathy." Writing again to his brother, February 16, 1917, Lane said: 'At our dinner to the President that -I am altnost hopeless as to moving them to the wise, large and wholesome Job." h. wrote. "They ! nrfl envtarneri bv red tane worpft most animated sessions cabinet that I supose has of the ever been held under this or any other president.

NOTES ON DAILY LIFE. In addition to his voluminous correspondence, which included letters to virtually every person of importance in the United States, Lane made many notes on incidents Occurring In his daily life. Among these were copious comments on the cabinet meetings. In ono of these notes, dated March 1, 191S, he said: v "Yesterday; at cabinet meeting, we had the, first real talk of war in weeks, yes, in months. Burle-sowbrought up the .matter'-of Russia would "we support - Japan in taking Siberia, or even Vladivostok? "Should we Join Japan actively- in force? "The President said, 'No,' for the very practical reason that we had no ships. We had difficulty In providing for our men In France and for our .allies. ...(The President never uses this ward, saying that we are not allies.)" In a note dated March 12, 1918, Secretary Lane wrote: "Nothing talked of at, cabinet that would lnterest-w-Hiation, a family or a child. No talkW war. No talk of Russia or Japam Talk by McAdoo about some ttllls in Congress, by the President about giving the veterans of the Spanish war leave, with pay, to attend their annual encampment. And he treated this seriously as if it were a matter of first importance." "Yesterday we had a cabinet meeting," he wrote under date of October 23, 1918. "Ail were present. The President was manifestly disturbed. For some weeks we have spent our time at cabinet meetings largely in telling storlds. Even at the meeting of a week ago, the day on which the President sent his reply to Germany his second note-of the Paris series we were given no view of the note, which was Already in Lansing's hands and toas emitted at 4 o'clock. Germany came back with an acceptance of the President's terms a -superficial acceptance at least since he ppprnl to the cabinet yesterday."
