GREAT TRIBUTE TO
BENEFIT FOR NOTED ACTRESS
IN NEW YORK
OPERATIC STARS ON PROGRAM
Testimonial to One of the Best Known
Women of the Stage Will Be
an Event of Widespread
Madame Helena Modjeska, who for
years past has made her summer home
In Southern California at beautiful
Arden in the foothills of the Santa Ana
mountains, is to be honored with a tes
timonial to be given her on May 8 In
New York by the most famous drama
tic, musical and operatio stars of two
continents. Madnme Modjeska ■ passed
through Los Angeles en route to New
York early last week.
This testimonial has been arranged
by Ignace Jan Paderewskl, Madame
Sembrlch and a number of others of
nearly pqual fame and promises to be
an event not only In the dramatic
world but also with New York society.
Ex-President and Mrs. Cleveland head
the list of prominent people under whose
patronage the affair Is to be held, and in
their offering of such a testimonial to
Madame Modjeska they say that they
wish to express by such a testimonial
their appreciation of what she has done
for art and the elevation of the stage.
The well known fact is also mentioned
that Modjeska has stood unswervingly
for the highest Ideals in her art/ This
was proven during the last winter when
she refused the largest offer ever made
to a single individual to star in vaude
Success of Her Life
But few people live to realize bo com
plete a success in life as has Madame
Modjeska. In spite of hardships, diffi
culties and even banishment from her
native and beloved Poland, by dint of
■ hard work and perseverance she has
j won the esteem of two continents, has
mastered her art, and in spite of having
given away several fortunes in charities
has yet a competent fortune upon which
to depend in years to come.
. . Madame Modjeska is naturally much
pleased at this spontaneous expression
on the part of her friends in New York
and was eager to reach the great Amer
ican center of dramatic art and renew
friendships and repeat the triumphs of
In addition to Arden a substantial
property in Poland yields an income
from which Madame Modjeska supports
members of her family there.
The matchlessly beautiful Arden
ranch, consisting of several thousands
of acres of plain, foothill meadows and
thickly wooded canyons, was the sum
mer home of the well known actress for
a number of years. Since she has not
been playing regularly the greater por
tion of her time Is spent under the giant
live oaks of Arden. The house itself 1%
worthy of .mention, but Is merely an In
cident in the grounds, comprising as
they do acres of lawn and flowers
stretching away under' the oaks to the
Santiago creek several hundred yards
away, while on the other side the
mountains rise to a level plateau or
mesa which is covered with an orange
orchard, then back of the orchard the
peaks of the Santa Anas' rise thousands
of feet into the sky.
Fortune Spent on Ranch
A fortune has been expended in equip
ping this ranch. A dam eighty feet
In height was thrown across the mouth
of a side canyon and a lake thus formed
more than a mile long, which furnishes
water for the. olive orchards below and
sport for guests who may be disciples of
Izaak Walton. Hundreds of acres of
olives are bearing and the fruit is con
verted into olive oil on the ranch.
Los Angeles admirers of Madame
Modjeska will have an opportunity of
seeing her on the stage again later in
the spring. She Is to play "Magda" at
Hazard's pavilion, now known as
Temple auditorium, as a finale to the
existence to the old pavilion which has
been the scene of so many noteworthy
events- in the dramatic history of Los
Angeles. Immediately after this per
formance the old building is to be torn
down to make room for the new and
larger structure which is to take its
place. - .

Constable De La Monte Unearths a
Big Supply of Tickets—Proprie

One of the most Important ex
posures of lottery, made by officers for

afternoon through the assistance of
Constable J. H. De La Monte, when
the office of the Greenwald Cigar and

street were raided and 10,000 lottery
For the past few weeks, since the
amendment, making ,the sending of
lottery tickets through the express and
through carriers, a federal offense, was
passed, Postoftlce Inspectors J. H. C.
Wilson and R. W. Madden have been
working for the suppression of 'lottery
ticket selling in Los Angeles.
Late yesterday afternoon, the offi

ed, "Welt you have ub cinched so come
on In and take the goods."
Finds Ten Thousand Tickets
The officers started to search the
drawers and compartments In the
place but were interrupted by a clerk
who told them that all the lottery
tickets were kept In one drawer. The
officers searched the drawer and found
a great quantity of tickets. Not satis
fied with their finding, they opened
several other drawers and hundreds of
tickets were discovered.
The federal officers were about to
depart but the constable insisted upon
a search of the company's safe. Mr.
Greenwald was sent for but claimed
that although he knew the combination
to the safe, the cashier was the only
one who carried the keys. The offi
cers threatened to force the safe open
and the proprietor quickly 'found a
combination that would work.
When the heavy- Iron doors swung
back, hundreds upon hundreds of lot
tery tickets ranging In value from
twenty-five cents a chance to $4 were
found stacked In the safe and when
counted amounted to nearly 10,000.

The divorce suit brought by J. P.
Brady of Chicago against his wife,
Emma Given Bryan Brady, society
woman and Friday Morning club mem
ber of this city, is to be stubbornly
contested by the latter when' the case
comes to trial.
Mr. Brady charges his wife with
cruelty and demands a Judicial separa
tion and asks for the custory of their
eight-year-old son. In his bill he de
clares his wife's extravagance has
made him bankrupt.
In Los Angeles Society
Two years ago the Bradys came to
Los Angeles and being possessed of
wealth and culture and backed with
good soclul standing In the east, were
at once received into the best society
of the city. Mr. Brady is a brother of
Cyrus Townsend Brady, the noted au
thor, and has himself won some fame
from a volume of stories called "Tales
of the Telegraph." He had seen ser
vice in the Spanish-American war,
having acted as press censor, and being
a good talker with an agreeable per
sonality, quickly became a favorite,
especially with the ladies— so report
hns It; and this gift of attracting the
other sex, his wife alleges. Is really
the cause of the present suit, instead
of her cruelty.
Mrs. Brady Talks
"Tho information ' that Col." — she
calls him colonel— "Brady has brought
a suit for divorce in Crlcago was a
surprise to me," said his wife when
seen at her home in the fashionable
"Westlake district yesterday. "He has
no grounds whatever for the action.
I shall go to Chicago when the case
is tried and contest every inch.
Through my attorney, Lynn Helm, I
shall bring counter suit for divorce on
the grounds of desertion. He left me
a year ago, stating he was going away
for three weeks on business. I have
not seen him since, nor have I re
ceived a penny from him. He was
employed by the Conservative Life In
surance company here, and when he
left told me the company would send
me his salary. I telephoned the office
two weeks after his departure and re
ceived the information that Mr, Brady
hud not been connected with the com
pany for three weeks before he left.
Not understanding 1 . his remaining
away so long and not wishing to jrlvo
any chance for gossip I gave out that
Colonel Brady's business was keeping
him away longer than he had expected.
I kept thinking that he would return.
"As for the charge of extravagance
It Is absurd. Col. Brady has very ex
pensive tastes and I spent the whole of
my own fortune In paying our bills.
Besides, his Income was not large and
I often had to settle many bills."

DIANA IS BEING DISARMED
Gravity of Franco-Japanese Issue Is
Believed to Have Been Relieved
by the Vigorous Measures

PARIS, April 22.— The French gov
ernment, has been officially Informed,
that Vice Admiral Rojestvenskjr*!
squadron left Kamranh bay today. Th«
destination of the squadron Is un
Officials here maintain that the grav
ity of the Franco-Japanese isnue over
neutrality has been much relieved by
the vigorous measures which Prance
adopted. Emperor Nicholas' orders to
Vice Admiral Rojestvensky to leave
French waters are the direct result.
To have the emperor give a decisive
order, it is held here, signifies that
such order must be obeyed, whereas
Vice Admiral Rojestvensky has exer
cised his personal discretion as to ob
serving orders emanating from the
Russian admiralty concerning French
waters off the coast of Madagascar.
Heretofore Kamranh bay has been
an unknown spot, although an adven
turous Frenchman, the Marquis de
Munville, has established a small col
ony there. The marquis uses this col
ony as a base for hunting 'expeditions
and for carrying on a considerable
trade with coast points. Except for
this primitive settlement, Kamranh
bay has no habitation, no telegraph, no
customs house and no official es
tablishment of any kind.
Further official advices show that
radical steps have been taken to pre
vent the Russian . protected cruiser
Diana, Interned at Saigon after the
naval battle of August 10, from put
ting to sea and resuming her activa
operations. The Diana is understood
to have been lying recently at Haifong,
where her repairs were sufficiently ad
vanced to permit her to rejoin Admiral
Rojestvensky's squadron and thus add
another powerful cruiser to his
strength. But the French authorities
peremptorily required the cruiser to be
