8 APOTHEOSIS OF WOMAN AT THE CONGRESS Women! women! women! Legions of them, swarms of them, floods of them in undated the Woman's Congress at the three meetings yesterday afternoon. They crowded the seats and jammed the aisles. They packed the galleries of the First Congregational Church and they over flowed the platform. The chancel was filled with them, the organ loft was thronged and the corridors were alive with them. It was a woman's congress with a vengeance— an apotheosis of women — and the temerarious man who ventured into the wilderness of spring millinery, per fume and balloon sleeves was lucky to es cape even with the loss of his antagonism to woman suffrage. And no man who attended the congress yesto rday was bold enough to declare that he had not experienced a change of heart on the suffrage question. He might have gone there a skeptic as to the necessity or probable efficacy of woman's exercising the franchise, but when the speakers in the congress had finished there w...

is the home and the home is the city, and whatever affects one affects the other. Now, if we deprive the women from all con nection with the life of the city do you think the home will be as healthy as it would be if the woman, responsible for the home, should also have the power to regulate and control eonairions affecting her home? Miss Shaw had some very bitter things to say concerning the liquor* traffic, claim ing that on each New Year the Govern ment of the United States, like another minotaur in the modern labyrinth of saloons, called upon the mothers of the country to provide 100,000 more children to supply the places in the saloons made vacant by the ruin of another 100,000 in the year past. Now. gentlemen, said Miss Shaw, I want to say one thing in closing. You say you have protected us in the past. We have "never been protected. Conditions in these United States exist of such a character that last year 2000 women were murdered by men, and of these a large majority by thei...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Trial of Michael Collins for Killing Philip Boogar Begun. REPROVED BY THE COURT. Second Regatta of the California ■■■■;.. Yacht Club-Robbed a Restaurant. In the trial of Michael Collins for the kiiline; of Philip Boogar in Oakland last January the most sensational occurence yesterday was developed when Mr. Wright, ex-mananer of the Hotel Galindo, came back on the witness-stand and rather flatly contradicted the testimony he had just given. In the afternoon he testified as to disrob ing the wounded man and handing the garments to Marks, a friend of Boogar, as he took them off. So the evidence stood when a recess of five minutes was taken. At its conclusion District Attorney Snook recalled Wright, whereupon the witness said he laid the garments of Boogar on tne foot of the bed when he took them off, and that Marks did not handle them. .The point was to make it quite plain that ▼ Boogar was not armed on the night of the murder. Attorney George A. Knight, who ap pear...

General Warfield, the newly appointed brigadier, called on General Dickinson on Wednesday. General Dickinson received him cor dially, and remarked that it was fine weather. "I have never seen it finer at this time of the yeaj," coincided General Warfield. "And business seems to be picking up," said General Dickinson. "Some of my friends on Front and Battery streets de clare that there is a decided change for the better." "Well, with such a season in prospect for the farmers," said General Warfield, "there is good reason for a shaking up all around." "Wheat is remarkably active," remarked General Dickinson, sententiously. "I should say so," said General Warfield, enthusiastically. "What an excitement there must be on the Chicago Exchange."

THE INQUEST AT PINOLE. A Young Tacoman Meets Death While on an Outing In the Cascades. MONTEREY, Cal., May 24.— A guest at the St. Charles Hotel, registering under the name of G. H. Rohrs of 795 Haight Btreet, San Francisco, attempted to com mit suicide by shooting himself this after noon. Two fishermen painting a boat at. the foot of Taylor street noticed a man sitting on the sand near them, but paid no atten tion to him until they heard a shot. The Mranger had put the muzzle of a pistol into his mouth and pulled the triji^tr. The bullet went through the roof of his mouth, missing the brain, and plowed through the skull. The wounded man was removed to the St. Charles Hotel and made as comfortable as the circumstances would permit. The would-be Buicide is a German by birth, about 47 years old. He is sli...

2 SANTA CRUZ CHARMS. Beauties of City and Country by the Sea. ROSES ALWAYS BLOOMING In Addition to Nature's Tri umphs There Are Great Resources. CALIFORNIA'S NOTED RESORT. Rich in Verdure and Also in Agri cultural and Dairy Re sources. SANTA CEUZ. Cal., May 24.— Among the many sea-kissed counties along the 800 miles of shore line of wondrous Califor nia there is none more fair to look upon than Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz has fifty miles of shore, made up of long sandy beaches, calm bays, where pleasure and fishing boats glide, busy wharves, where passenger and freight vessels touch, and picturesque rock-bound points, where the sea tosses and foams forever. Back from the shore, past the grazing cattle ranges and fertile valleys, is the Santa Cruz Mountains, out from which rises flat-topped Ben Lomond and dark, shadowy Loma Prieta, the latter rising 4000 feet above the sea. These mountains, clothed with giant redwoods, red-trunked madrona, elder and laurel, whisper secrets of the long ago...

REVENUE LAWS HOLD Have Not Been Affected by the Income-Tax Decision. MR. ELDRIDGE'S OPINION. The Los Angeles Political Economist Replies to Colonel Smithson. ONE CLASS IS INVALIDATED. He Believes License Taxes on Liquor-Dealers Cannot Now Be Imposed. LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 24.— The re cent decision of the United States Supreme Court pronouncing the income-tax law un constitutional, and the opinion in connec tion therewith of Colonei Noble Smithson of Knoxville, Term., that the decision has invalidated the internal revenue laws, was the subject of an interview with Charles Wesley Eldridge, an attorney in this city, to-day. Eldridge spent twenty-five years in the internal revenue service, and is the author of the work entitled "The United States Internal Revenue Tax System," which is to-day perhaps the best and clear est exponent of the internal revenue sys tem of the United States, and is accepted as one of the best authorities on the sub ject.

Jefferson's Daughter Weeps in the Arms of Grizzled Governor Lubbock. HOUSTON, Tex., May 24.— Although many of the visiting Confederate veterans left for home last night and to-day, there are still several thousand here. A grand parade was held this afternoon by the vet erans and ail the militia companies at Camp Culberson. The weather was rather unpleasant, being hot and muggy.

8 THE WOMAN'S CONGRESS CONSIDERS BABIES MOTHERS and their babies, fresh air and pure food, dresses with plenty of pockets ia them for women, Trilby feet and no corns, pure food and pure air, with a few altruistic and metaphysical suggestions on the side, engrossed the at tention of the crowds at the Woman's Congress yesterday. Although the members of the congress had threshed up any quantity of material concerning the home during the four pre ceding days they came fresh to the task on the morning of the fifth, confident of their ability to furnish new food for thought. And they did. They trenched but slightly on old ground, and then only when gently reminded by the ever-watch ful Miss Anthony that the dower of the ballot to woman was the remedy for pres ent ills. Miss Anthony and the Rev. Anna Shaw spoke a number of times during the day, the efforts of the latter being particularly happy as she touched off the imperious ness of the woman dressmaker and the politeness ot her tailor. ...

of Mrs. Dr. Harriet Maxsoa's paper. She said: Nine-tenths of all diseases are preventable. All violations of divinely given natural laws are followed by evil results. Oftentimes the mediums of contagion are forgotten or over looked. Flowers or the precious lock of hair may imprison, even for years, the deadly germs. The perms of such diseases as scarlet and typhoid fever lurk in sewer-pipes, under "old floors and are disseminated by birds, do mestic animals, water, etc. Of deaths result ing from measles, whooping cough and scarlet fever a large majority occur under 5 years of age. It fceeins almost unnecessary to speak to such an intelligent audience as this about the carelessness of which so many are guilty. But a woman, who takes a child suffering * from whooping cough into a room, filled with peo ple, as is frequently the case, is absolutely guilty of murder. The tobacco and liquor habits are responsible for thousands of deaths. If not directly at all times then indirectly by mak...
