feminine movie stars care more for
' a home than the plaudits of the pub
lie At least that's the way his "wife
explains it. She ought to know. She
is a movie queen herself.
"Our troubles," said Mrs. Myrtle
Lillian Gonzales Jones, "were the
outcome of my husband not under
standing that we movie stars are very
domestic when not acting before the
camera.- We are not gaiety seekers.
I at least am not. We are home
Mrs. Jones was recently granted a
divorce on charges of desertion and
"We have," she continued, "a fine
little son, .and when my work was
over I wanted to get home as quick
as I could to pick up the baby and
have a real comfy, homey sort of
time. But not for Mr. Jones. We
hadn't been married very long be
fore he began to think that women
of different types from me were more
attractive than I, and he began as
sociating with them.
"I didn't like the gaiety he liked,
so I stayed home with the baby and
he came home when there wasn't
any other place to go. Of course

CITY WINS VICTORY WHEN ELECTRIC LIGHT
TRUST IS WALLOPED
The so-called lighting trust report,
accused of being a boost for the Com
monwealth Edison Co.. got a throw
down In the sanitary district trustees
meeting yesterday. By a vote of 4 to 3
it was not "accepted."
Higher rates for the city were re
commended and the report was full
of suggestions that a light and power
plant run by the people is a fizzle.
Lyman E. Cooley, the district chief
engineer, was on hand to. deny under
hand work in the report.
"It is charged that the report is in
the interest of the Commonwealth
Edison Co., or the Economy Light &
Power Co., said Cooley. s "That is
utterly false. ,
"I have not been employed by a
power company since 1906. If I used
the same reasonJ;hat has been used
against me, I coura charge that their
policy is in the interest of the Edison
Co. With, their policy, the district's
plant will be bankrupt in ten years,
But God forgive them, for they don't
know what they are doing."
Trustee Wallace G. Clark asserted
that the same arguments made by
the power trust in 1906, when they
wanted the state legislature to choke
off competition for them are con
tained in the report.
"Mr. Cooley was there," said Clark.
"He told me and others in the Leland
Hotel that he was employed by the
Edison company. He was to ascer
tain whether the district would be
come a competitor. He said that he
thought it would only be a competitor
in the sense of a rate regulator. In
the hearing before the governor he
sat beside Congressman Howard
Sapp and prompted him with ques
tions on the side of the power trust.
I have a statement here from another
trustee who was present at the time."
Trustees Dailey. Reading, Clark
and Paullin voted against the report.
Smyth, Breit and Sullivan were for it.
City Engineer John Ericson and his
assistant. Artingstall, are to report at
the next city council meeting on why
they signed the report which recom
mended the city should pay more for
Denver. No truth in report from
Washington that the authorities of
Colorado will, wjthin 48 hours, ask
President Wilson to remove federal
troops from the strike district, Gov.
Amnions declared yesterday.
