FIRE ENGINES IN
Accident to Nott Engine Mars Success
of Trial and Causes Postpone,
ment— City Officials Attend
Competitive tests between the flre
engines of the Nott and the Amerlcan-
LaFrance companies were undertaken
yesterday In the presence of the mayor
and the flre commission, but in account
of an accident to the Nott engine, the
tests were not completed.
The tests took place at the reservoir
in Elysian park, under the direct su
pervision of a committee consisting of
three well known engineers, Frank
Rademacher, H. H. Gorter and Fred
Fisher. The tests were eight in num
ber and a fixed number of points were
allowed for each specification.
During the fouth test a shaft on the
Nott engine broke and it was Impos
sible to proceed. The final test was
then postponed until Tuesday morning
at the Fame place. Speaking of the
nature of the tests yesterday afternoon,
one of the Judges of the competition
said it was the intention of the com
mission to make them as nearly like
actual flre fighting as possible. The
Elysian park reservoir was selected
on account of there being any amount
of water for the engines to draw upon.
The tests included the use of one, two
and three lines of hose.
Both engines were doing good work
up to the time that the break occurred
on the Nott engine. This break will
not detract from the performance of
the engine, as the committee has made
allowance in the schedule for unavoid
able accidents such as may occur to an
engine at any time.
Both the engines are what are called
second size. The engine making the
best average In points in the competi
tion was to be purchased by the city
and installed as a part of the flre
Mayor McAleer, the members of the
flre commission. Chief Strohm and
other representatives of the city
watched the engines as they were put
through their paces.
STORM WATER KEEPS
STREET MEN BUSY
Storm water partially flooded the
basement of the city hall yesterday,
and In order to go about their work
the engineers of the heating and ele
vator plant laid bridges about upon
the floor. The water found its way in
from the rear door and from the alley
between the hall and an adjoining
The storm also caused some damage
In the southwestern part of the city.
A complaint was received In the city
clerk's office from Milton Metzler about
conditions In the district bounded by
Honitu, Twentieth, Normandle and
Washington streets. The writer com
plained that the water was from two
Inches to two feet deep on his property.
Street Superintendent Hunley had
gangs of men clearing the gutters,
manholes and sewer entrances, and
every effort was made to keep ttfthe
water moving toward the sea.

HOLDS HIS PLACE
CHARGES OF INCOMPETENCY
ARE HEARD -
Effort Made to Show That Official It
Incompetent Is Not a Success.
Nunnalley Gate Deferred
.. Om Week
The civil service commission devoted
yesterday afternoon to hearing the
charges preferred Agalnnt J. H. Hollo
way, the city boiler Inspector, by P.
H. Orace. Grace was at one time an
assistant to Holloway, Grace's ap
pointment was irregular, however, and
his name was dropped from the roll
of the city employes.
Some time Ago Grace made charges
of lncompetency against Holloway.
Holloway came back with counter
charges against Grace. The charges
against Grace were dismissed by the
commission yesterday without preju
dice. The commissioners held that
they had no Jurisdiction as Grace was
not an employe of the civil service.
The Holloway hearing developed a
great deal of technical information
about boilers. The commissioners
found themselves struggling with a
mass of questions about tensile
strength, resistances to pressure and
The prosecuting witness was charged
like an electric battery with all sorts
of Information upon all these points.
The commission, however, had an op
portunity of selecting from those pres
ent several men who understand the
theory and practice of steam engineer
Frank Rademacher and R. O. Hill
man, the latter an Inspector for the
Hartford Steam Boiler Insurance Co.,
assisted the commission In gaining an
understanding of the difficult problems
involved In the charges. Mayor Mc-
Aleer gave his testimony from the
standpoint of an expert boiler maker
and an old acquaintance of Holloway.
One claim that Grace laid stress
upon was that Holloway was not an
educated engineer. He did not know
enough about "theory."
The testimony of the mayor touch-
Ing this point was characteristic of ths
man, simple and direct. "It may be
true, gentlemen of the commission."
said Mayor McAleer, "that Mr. Hollo
way does not know as much about th?
theory of engineering as he ought to
know. But that is a common mis
fortune among mechanics. Most of u»
go into the shops when we are llttta
boys and If we do any studying we
must do it at night. It is too bad that
we can't all have a college education
but it isn't possible." '.
"When asked If he considered Mr.
Holloway a competent man for the po
sition he holds the mayor answered
that Holloway was entirely compi
tent and added: "I consider him one of
the best boiler makers In Southern
California." After a full hearing the
charges were dismissed.
A large number of witnesses had
been summoned In connection with the
charges against Oscar Nunnalley, chief
deputy in the olty assessor's office. Mr.
Nunnalley's attorney was absent from
the city, however, and on that account
the trial of this case was postponed
until 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon,
BURKE HELD FOR CONTEMPT
Defendant Assists in His Own
Edmund Burke, who was committed
to the county Jail Friday by Justice
Pierce for contempt of court, was
brought before Judge Smith in the su
perior court yesterday on habeas
Burke is an attorney by profession
and he assisted his attorneys in the
conduct of his case.
Several fine points of law were In
volved In the case, and It was only
after an all day's argument that Judge
Smith denied the writ and remanded
Burke to the custody of the sheriff.
Burke has made an exhaustive legal
fight In his case before two depart
ments of the superior court.
Burke paid the Judgment rendered
against him In the lower court.
INGRAM IS CONVICTED

Comas, on behalf of the prosecution,
made the final argument In the caße,
at the conclusion of which Judge Smith
read his customary Instructions to tho
Judge Smith will Impose sentence
on the bigamist next Wednesday, at
which time It is understood Attorney
Yager in behalf of Ingrain will move
to arrest the Judgment and also Hie
a motion for a new trial.

GREET PLAYERS PRESENT
- "HAMLET" IN ITS ENTIRETY
Shakespearean Scholars Delighted
With Rendition of Famous
A "Hamlet" new to Los Angeles was
presented at the T<emple auditorium
yesterday afternoon and evening. . It
was a "Hamlet" in twenty scenes, and
every scene the same — as far as scenery
was concerned. It was the story of the
prince of Denmark as our forefathers
heard It 300 years ago.
There was little that to the modern
senses could be called theatrical In the
"Hamlet" as given by the Greet players
yesterday. The only "spot light" used
was wh«an the sun broke through a gal
lery window during the afternoon and
produced a halo round the head of the
ghost. It was the great tragical his
tory given in its entirety, and it lasted
from 3 to 11 o'clock, with a recess from
5 to 8 o'clock for dinner.
Without a precedent with which to
Judge this performance critlslsm is dis
armed. From the standpoint of the
Shakespearean Bcholar and lover there
can be no doubt of its great value. Yes
terday the large audience saw this
tragedy in a unique light. Hidden
phrases w<ere brought to their knowl
edge for the first time. It was an op
portunity by which many could learn
more of the "Hamlet" which Shake
The Hamlet which Ben Greet Imper
sonated was not new In Its conception,
and it may or may riot have been the
prince as the author intended. But Mr.
Greet read his lines in a manner which
showed careful and intelligent study,
and he was given enthusiastic applause
by the audience.
Miss Constance Crawley was very
pleasing as Ophelia. The moods of her
character were painted with great
delicacy and splendidly shaded. John
Sayer Crawley was a good Laertes.
The remainder of the company filled
well the difficult roles.
SCION OF OLD ENGLISH
FAMILY IS SENTENCED
Douglas L. Durham, said to be the
scion of an old English family, yester
day pleaded guilty to the charge of
forgery In Judge Smith's court, and he
is now on his way to state's prison.
He was charged with having forged
the nome of George W. Yule to a check
drawn on the National Bank of Califor
nia for the sum of $20.
C. Mortimer White, the English con
sul, made an effort to save his coun
tryman from state's prison, but his
Judge Smith sentenced him to serve
a term of one year In state's prison.
