Clash Between New Governor
and .Old Expected at
SULZER KEEPS CHAMBERS
Acting Official Issues 'Statement in
Which lie Tells Public That Po
litical Chaos Must Soon
Come to an End.
ALBANT, N. T., Aug. 20. Martin H.
Glynn was officially recognized as
Acting; Governor or tha state by tbe
board of trustees of public buildings
late today, when new rooms in the
eapltol were designated as "the execu
tive chamber" for hla use. The assem
bly parlor and a committee room were
et aside as the Acting- Governor's
quarters. They are situated on the
third floor, while the executive offices
to which Governor Sulzer still clings
are on the floor below.
As his first act after moving Into the
new offices, Mr. Glynn Issued a state
ment outlining; his policy. In part the
"I do not intend to employ a tem
porary occupancy of the Governorship
for the purpose of partisan warfare.
Co-Oseratloa la Asked.
"Under me, as Acting; Governor, there
will be no political earthquakes and no
"I have no intention of removing- de
partmental heads for mere political
reasons. I purpose discharging by
iworn obligations for the best interests
of the public.
"I ask the hearty co-operation of all
state officials and all good citizens to
help bring order out of chaos in tne
state government until the court of im
peachment shall have rendered a ver

present confusion. Official chaos must
end and the affairs of the state proceed
as if no impeachment proceedings were
pending. Until the court of impeach

sary for the smooth tunning; of the
business of the state."
An immediate clash of authority be
tween the rival Governors may follow
Mr. Glynn's action of today. He an
nounced that he will call upon the ex
ecutive clerical staff, which so far has
remained loyal to Governor Sulzer, for
any service which may be needed.' As
an attempt at dismissal will follow the
refusal of any employe to obey either
claimant of the Governorship, it Is pre
dicted that a conflict which offers pos
sibilities of bringing- the situation to
a head may be precipitated at any time.
As Governor Sulzer approached tbe
eapitol steps today on his way from
the executive mansion three stalwart
young men turned around to stare at

of the employers. Mr. Roberts vehe
mently declared himself for an eight
hour day for" women employes, and
took an even more emphatic stand for
6 o'clock closing. He asserted that It

actually injurious to the health of
women employes to have to work at

the conference who voted against the
recommendation that 8 hours and SO
minutes should constitute a maximum

or a total of 4S in one week, to 8
hours and !0 minutes a day, or SO
hours a week, was made on the mo
tion of Miss Helen Dinneen. a worker
in Roberts' Brothers store, and repre
sentative of the employes on the com
mission. The motion as first made by
Will H. Woodward, a representative of
the employers, was for eight hours a
day and 48 hours a week.
MissDinneen hoved to amend this to
the figures finally adopted in order to
conform with the hours of labor for
minor girl employes, as fixed by the
Industrial Welfare Commission. Miss
Gladys Rogers, also a representative of
the employes, seconded her amendment.
Only Mr. Roberts voted "No" when
the amended recommendation was put
up for passage by T. IX Honey-man. as
representative for the public, who
acted as chairman.
Two Queetioaa Submitted.
At Its last meeting on July 28, IMS.
tbe conference had recommended to the
Industrial Welfare Commission that
89-25 a week should be the minimum
wage for adult women employes of
mercantile establishments. Last night
there were two questions for the con
ference to determine. As formulated by
the Industrial Welfare Commission,
"What are the maximum hours of
work in mercantile establishments
consistent with the health and effi
ciency of the employes?" and,
"Is the employment of women at
night work in mercantile establish
ments reasonable and consistent with
Miss Clara Southwick, of Boston, sec
retary of the Massachusetts Consumers'
League, was an interested spectator at
the conference. She was askel about
condHiona in Boston retail stores.
Clualas Early at Bestou.
"At present practically none of the
larger and better stores keep open
after 5:80 o'clock." he explained. "The
regular hours generally are from 8:30
A. M. to 5:30 P. M."
She said further that few of the
downtown Boston stores were open Sat
urday nights or at nights during the
Christmas holidays, but that this did
not apply to the smaller stores In the
Site said. In response to a question,
that many of the stores, however, did
not give a full hour off for lunch.
Amedee M. Smith,- representing the
Welfare Commission, asked I. N. Lip
man the hours in his store.
"From 8:30 to 5:30." said Mr. Lipman,
"with a full hour for lunch. On Satur
days from 0:15 to 9:15, with one hour
for lunch and one for dinner."
Early Shopping I apopular.
"If we' could get the people to shop
in the mornings," Mr. Lipman went on,
in answer to a question from Mrs. Hen
ry Russell Talbot as to whether It
wouldn't be practicable to close every
night, "it would be easier all around.
But they won't."
At this point Mr. Roberts spoke up.
"1 can sum up all my views in a very
few words" he said.
"I think that Saturday night work
is quite unnecessary from tlie- employ
ers' point of view. The work can all
be done in eight, hours, and it should
be done in eight hours. And as for
night work toeing detrimental to tbe
health of anyone.- there can't be a
doubt of it.
"This night shopping is all a matter
of habit. We used to keep open till
11:30 o'clock Saturday nights, and
there was a rush at 11 o'clock, just as
there now is at o'clock.
Night Hnblt Declared Bad.
"Now what's the necessity of work
ing at night?- It's a bad habit the store
people have got into, and the public,
too. It isn't necessary, for instance, to
buy a hat at 9 P. M.. when you can buy
it' at 9 in the morning."
Mrs. Talbot asked if all the shopping
couldn't be done in daytime. Mr. Rob
erts answered that it could, easily. He
said Saturday night closing was the
rule virtually In every, other large city.
"The leading merchants have always
told the Consumers' League they would
close If the -others would close," com
mented Miss K. L. Trevitt, a represent
ative of the public "If they were all
made to close by law it would work a
hardship on no one."
"I've always said that." said Mr.
W. P. Olds, of Olds. Wortman & King,
objected to several assertions made by
Mr. Roberts. He said. also, that the
public wanted Saturday night shopping.
"It so happens." said he. that we lose
sight of the great outside. We tried it
in our store earnestly for six years to
see if we couldn't do something. The
great outside doesn't rare a rap for
the Consumers' League or for early
closing. The great outside wants to be
able to get a particular thing when it
"As far as the stores are concerned.
they are entirely willing to adopt bank
ing hours: five hours a day. 1 would
prefer that myself. But we want it to
be unanimous. Now. this law is to ap
ply only to stores that employ women.
Others are not included. This simply
means that the' busrnes of the stores
that employ many women would be af
fected most, and it would go to other
stores employing no women, or so few
as not to make any difference.
Advantage Held Pnnaible.
"Take us, for Instance." he continued.
"We sell men's clothing, hats, furnish
ings, groceries, etc. If we close on Sat
urday night the clothing, the hat, the
furnishing and the grocery stores that
employ no women can absorb this
business on Saturday night.
"If you close up all the stores, all
right. But you must make it unani
mous, or it is not fair."
Mr. Olds said the Saturday night
business had been established by cus
tom, and reasonable custom, and that
it was a convenience to the public.
"We kept closed for six years on Sat
urday nights." he explained, "and while
we did this the labor unions were writ
ing to our competitors thanking them
for remaining ope We must remem
ber that there are thousands of wage
earners who like to shop with their
wives, and for whom Saturday night is
the only available time. If we keep
open until 9 o'clock Saturday night. It
is not going to hurt the health of any
one. If they work under proper sani
Mr. Olds said that he wished the
Commission to understand that he was
in favor of short hours and early clos
ing, but that justice must be done
first. " - -
"And there can be no justice," he
added, "where one concern with a few
women must close, while another
without women shall not."
Fairness of Teat Questioned.
Amedee Smith took exception to the
experience of Mr. Olds' firm with 6
o'clock closing as pointing to any les
son whatever. He insisted that the re
fusal of other firms to close at the
same time nullified any value it might
have had as a fair test.
Miss Helen Dinneen was asked her
views as an employe. "I agree with
Mr. Roberts." she answered emphatic
ally. "I think we must educate our
people gradually to day shopping and
6 o'clock closing. Six o'clock should
be the latest."
"As far as health is concerned." she
said later, "it certainly is not a healthy
thing for girls to have to work nights
for a whole week at Christmas time."
Miss Gladys Rogers agreed with her
associate. Mrs. J. W. Mackey, the em
ployes' third, representative, made a
"Eight hours a day is plenty for a
girl to work," said she. "I know of
many cases where girls go home to
dinner and are too tired to do any
thing but lie down.
Shift of Long Day Suggested.
"If we must have one longer day in
the week, I think Saturday is the worst
one we could get. Why couldn't it be
Monday or Tuesday? By Saturday the
girls have worked a whole week with
out rest and are tired, and I have no
ticed that customers are inclined to be
tired and peevish, too.
"Moreover." she continued, "if a girl
works late Saturday night she is often
too tired to get up and go to church
Sunday. Most girls have some religion
and would like to go to church."
After Will H. Woodward had de
clared himself warmly in favor of an
eight-hour day and 6 o'clbck closing
both recommendations were made.
Restaurants are not included aa
"Mercantile establishments" in tbe rec
ommendations. PORTLANDER TAKES BRIDE

GOOD ROADS URGED
Co-operation Is Keynote

BOND MOVEMENT LAUNCHED
People of Three Pacific Coast States
Must IVork Together to Insure
Good Highways, Says
EUREKA. Cal., Aug. 20. (Special.)
With Governor Ernest Lister, of Wash
ington, presiding, three state's good
roads rally opened sessions this morn
ing, striking upon the necessity of co
operation among states as well as
among counties and communities, as
its keynote. The upkeep of road sys
tems and the inefficiency of some of
the work done was touched upon.
Mayor W. S. Clark, of Eureka, opened
the rally by introducing Governor
Johnson, of California, who spoke with
regard to the California 818.000.000 sys
tem now under construction, closing
with an appeal to the people of all the
Pacific states to join in a movement
for a great Pacific highway system to
be built by Washington. Oregon and
California acting together. Governor
Johnson announced Governor Lister as
chairman, and Washington's Governor
then spoke on the "Necessity of Good
Roads Next to School.
"To my mind," said Governor LlRter.
"good roads rank second only to good
schools when it comes to the material
development and intellectual refine
ment of all of the people of any sec
tion." He argued for permanent roads, and
pointed out the fallacy of temporary
Captain J. Rupert Foster, of Marys
vllle, Cal.. spoke on "Linking Up the
Pacific Coast Slates." advocating the
necessity of good roads in order to
properly accomplish this purpose.
Dr. J. D. Bullitt, of San Jose, spoke
on "County and Inter-County Roads."
and created a sensation with his at
tack on the present -Inefficient system
of maintaining roads in California. Dr.
Bullitt spoke chiefly on California road
questions, but was of ouinion that
every state learns sooner or later that
the road problem is not In building,
but in maintaining roads.
Keaulta Justify Work.
At the afternoon session B. K. Lynlp,
of Alturas. Cal.. spoke on rombineo
state and county road building. He
strongly favored the building of roads
by states, and maintained that the re
sults which are to follow in California
will justify this confidence. He de
clared that if California's highway had
been completed prior to the last elec
tion Johnson would now be Vice-President.
Favoring bonding as the means, M. B.
Johnson, of San Mateo, spoke on the
means of raising money for good roads.

This defendant," asserted the Gov
ernment, "did not deny on the stand
the truth of the essential facta we
have shown here. He bad to admit
them all. Tbe defendant In a criminal
case usually relies o the presumption
of his Innocence, but this defendant
relied on his own depravity and licen
tiousness." - In seeking to establish that the trip
was not premeditated and that the two
girls had not been induced to take it
by threats of scandal on one hand and
promises of marriage on the other,
Diggs willingly testified to his own
misconduct and the embarrassments,
domestic and business, into which it
bad led him.
His counsel, in summing up the evi
dence, did not palliate these acta,
Counael Onella on Motive.
"Faint the defendant as you will a
monster, if you please." argued Robert
Devlin, his senior attorney, "but tell
me what motive he would have had in
going out of the state for the purpose
of accomplishing those things already
accomplished. Counsel may character
ize him as they please, and I may not
differ with them. They say his act
was shameless, and I may feel the same
way a tout it, but it Isn't white
This was the whole argumentative
substance of the defense. There re
mained the rhetorical and the emo
tional appeals, and of course they were
not neglected. The girls were blamed
for tempting the men. They were
called willing accomplices In what evil
had been done and the wladom of trust
ing a woman loved and scorned when
she bears witness against the lover
who has discarded her was called Into
Tears Wrong From Women.
A plea that Diggs be allowed to re
turn to his wife and family and to
restore himself in the esteem of his
friends and business associates was so
effectively made by Nathan Coghlan
that it drew tears from Mrs. Anthony
Caminetti, the mother of the co
defendant, and had many of tbe other
women in the courtroom dabbing at
their eyes. The two injured wives, who
had testified for the defendant after
hearing the most damaging evidence
from his own lips, sat immobile.
In view of the contention of the de
fense that no criminally immoral pur
pose had been proved, the interpreta
tion of the statute by the Judge was
awaited with much Interest. On this
point he said In part:
"The act. so far as here Involved,
provides In substance that any person
who shall knowingly transport . . .
in Interstate commerce any woman or
girl for the purpose of prostitution or
debauchery, or for any other immoral
purpose . . . shall be deemed guilty
of a felony and punished as therein
"The term 'Interstate commerce.' so
far as here Involved, means transporta.
tion from one state to another.
"As I have hertofore intimated to
you during the course of this trial,
it is immaterial what the character
of the two girls Involved in these
charges was at the time of the acts
charged. The act denounces the car
rying In Interstate commerce for the
immoral purposes specified, of any
woman or girl, . . regardless of
whether the girl or woman who is the
subject of his act be lewd or chaste,
or whether or not he lias himself pre
viously had Intercourse with her. '
"Where a defendant takes the wit
ness stand, his evidence is to be judged
by the same rules which are applied
in determining the credibility of any
other witness. ... If It appears
that the' defendant has suggested to
or attempted to Induce any witness in
this case to give evidence as to the
facts in controversy in any respect
not in accordance with the truth . . .
you may and should take such at
tempts into consideration in determin
ing the guilt of the defendant."
Reason for Instruction Evident.
This positive instruction went - di
rectly to the testimony of Nellie Bar
ton, a friend of Mnrsha Warrington,
who testified that Diggs and his at
torney, Charles S. Harris, of Sacra
mento, induced her to coach Miss War
rington in the testimony she should
give, promising her marriage If she
did as they wished and Imprisonment
otherwise. The defense did not con
tradict this evidence.
"The evidence is all before you," con
cluded the Court, "and it is for you to
say where the truth rests. The de
fendant has taken the stand in bis
own behalf and so far as his testimony
tends to aover the transaction in
volved in the charges against him. it
is somewhat at variance with that of
the two girls. . . . The testimony
of the defendant, however, does not
cover the entire transaction, as tes
tified to by the two girls. After tes
tifying to the relations between him
self and Caminettl and these girls down
to the Sunday night on which the evi
dence of the Government tends to
show the trip to Reno was taken, he
stops short and has given none of
the incidents of that trip, contenting
himself with merely referring to it as
having been taken. This was the de
fendant's privilege, but in passing upon
the evidence you have a right to take
this omission of the defendant into
consideration . . . since it is a le
gitimate inference that could he have
explained the incriminating evidence
against him he would have done so.
Defense Mnkea Objections.
"If you find these girls were taken
to Reno- by the defendant In the man
ner charged, then the only question
remaining is as to the intent with
which they were so taken. . . .
There is a homely adage that actions
speak - louder than words; and the
truth of this is quite as applicable to
judicial inquiries as in tbe ordinary
affairs of life.
"And even if you find that the de
fendant and his companion, Caminettl.
were actuated in their departure or
flight from Sacramento by a fear of
exposure or arrest, but that neverthe
less in taking these two girls along
there existed the Intention to subject
them to the immoral purposes
charged, the defendant is guilty.
If that Immoral purpose waa one
factor in inducing him to leave Sac
ramento and take these girls with
him, it matters not that he may have
also been actuated by his fears or
other consideration moving him to take
that trip. He would nevertheless be
The defense took exception to the
charge in general and to specific instructions.

based on a report by a board of inves

allowed speakers to harangue crowds

This led to the burning and destruc

Retaliation Not Justified.
In passing on this report, which was
transmitted by Rear Aamiral Keynoms,
Secretary Daniels declared that while
the conduct of those who denounced

not justify retaliation in kind."

in a speech in Seattle that obedience
to authorities and respect for the flag
must precede any reforms. He ex
pressed regret that the sailors had per
mitted themselves to forget tneir outy
to uohold the law which they had
sworn to uphold, and added that their
conduct in Seattle was against tne
naval regulations and could not be con
doned or allowed to go without punish
ment. Admiral Reynolds was directed to
have the Secretary's letter read on tne
ships of the fleet and to have the men
engaged in the affair punished in such
a manner as the Admiral may judge is
adequate for the offense.
So far as yet none of the sailors par
ticipating in the affair have been iden
tified. FUTILITY OF ORDER IS FELT
