A. Brenner of San Francisco Says
That Los Angeles Is Fast Tak.
Ing the Lead In Business
"The Los Angeles Credit Men's ns
soclatlon looks good to me," said Au
gustus Brenner, president of the San
Francisco Credit Men's association, in
the course of his felicitous address at
the monthly business meeting and ban
quet of the local association held last
night at Levy's. "In point of interest,
ability and enthusiasm," continued the
speaker, when the applause had sub
sided, "you are far ahead of. the San
Francisco organization. We are prouil
of what we have done, 'but wo are not
ashamed to acknowledge weak points.
Your energy and enthusiasm is in line
with everything else in Loh Angelas
as shown in the march of Improve
ments, in business, in real estate and
In banking. You are exceedingly prom
inent in everything that means push.
"In New York I heard si man say to
his friend that he was corning to Cali

have heard of California; that be some
where around Los Angeles, I reckon.'
The people in the east think of Los
Angeles tlrst, California second.
"Los Angeles is trying to get ahead
of San Francisco in everything in the
business line, and you business men
look with envious eyes upon the north
ern city. If you did not you wouli
not be the people you ought to b».
You are justified in petting all tho
business you can. The country is big

President Krenner said the San Fran
cisco association has a membership of
I'l\>, as against 60 for Los Angeles. He
gave some information • us to the sys
tem of doing business In San Francisco,
He spoke of the out-of-town check
evil, and explained how the associa
tion conducted Its collection depart
ment, handling claims of merchants
only when nil other menus of getting
satisfaction had been exhausted. In
two and one-half years the association
had been able to collect bad debts, ag
gregating IliO.lHM). The bulk law wa*
highly commended by the speaker, and
special praise was accorded Senator
Wolf for his aid in preventing the re
peal of the law, which provides that
no sale of merchandise shall be ef
fective until five days' notice of sale (b
given by record In the recorder's office,
thus giving creditor's time to present
and collect bills.
No More Big Profits
"The days of big profits have passed,"
said Mr. lirenner. "Competition la
keener all th« time. Profits are lower
and the credit man Is essential to the
success of all commercial life, 'l look
forward to the time when there will be
schools and colleges for the training of

pared to the credit man In importance
in relation to the sufe conduct of busl

HAVOC WROUGHT BY
STORMS IN MOUNTAINS
J. J. Lo'nergan Tells of a Trip Which
He Made to Inyo
"I stood on the summit of the Pana
mlnt range In Inyo county last week nt
an elevation of 7700 feet," said J. J.
Lonergan yesterday, "and could see
Mount Whitney In tlffe north, elevation
14.500 feet, and below me lay Death
valley, 650 feet below Bra level." Mr.
Lonergan and his friends, F. A. Sle
bert, a mining engineer, and James
West water of Ohio had spent ten days
In the mountains and deßert looking
after mining property, returning to
Los Angeles yesterday.
They experienced nearly every type
of weather — snow, rain and sleet, anJ
Just missed a destructive cyclone that
swept around the mountain peaks and
through the canyons. On every han3
was visible the results of the storms
of the past few months In the mountain
region, great gulleys cut in the road
ways and huge boulders dislodged and
sent tumbling down the mountain sides.
Mr. Lonergan says that the story to
the effect that a rough and lawless ele
ment, from western Nevada, had drifted
down to the mines In the Panamlnt
range district and had robbed and killed
prospectors Is wholly without founda
tion In fuct— that the miners In Inyo
county are law-abiding and that there
have been no murders or robberies that
he could hear of in any of the sections
he and his party visited.
