CEN. JOHNSTONE JONES
SANTA MONICA'S
MAYOR DESIGNS
Special to Th» It«rald.
SANTA MONICA, May 17.— The an
nouncement enrne today from Mayor
T. H. Dudley that ho would ask to tv
relieved of his office as well as the
duties of chairman of the board of city
trustees at the meeting of thnt body
to be held next Monday evening. This
action was followed by an official no
tice from tho chief executive In which
he stated his reasons for resigning,
which aro in part hb follow'a:
"My business interest demands it.
The interests of the people arc my In
terests. I live on the South side and'
have interests there as ■well as here
and I receive a great deal of unjust
criticism. The unpleasantness of late
has been so great that I feel I must
step out. I have been a member of the
board of city trustees for five years
and for four years have presided ove. 1
that body. I resign without any per
sonal ill feeling toward any member of
the board."
For many months past there has been
friction at the regular weekly sessions
of the trustees. On several occasions
the mayor with one or two of tho
board, has appeared at the council
chamber of an evening ready to tran
sact official business, then after a wait
of an hour or more without so much
as a telephone message from the ab
sent members they have been compelled
to adjourn because of "lack of a
quorum." That this has proved an
noying to Mr. Dudley there can be no
doubt.
But the straw that broke the camel's
back, so the knowing ones declare, was
occasioned by the actions of Trustee
J. C. Steele of poker fame, who at the
meeting of the board held Monday
evening loudly proclaimed the chair
man to be "no more important than
any other member." Steele called Trus
tee Goetz and Attorney Taft liars, in
addition to raising a general hubbub
when a permit was granted for the
erection of a pier at the foot of Marine
street.
Today, by the approval of a majority
of the board, an expensive arch, paid
for by the merchants of Ocean Park
und spanning Pier avenue, was re
moved by the Santa Monica street su
perintendent and sent to the city junk
pile. This action was the outcome of
a controversy that has been going on
for weeks as to whether or not ths
offshoot city should have her "Wel
come to Ocean Park" glaring at vis
itors within the boundary lines of San
ta Monica. Mayor Dudley did not ap
prove of this action, and to. say that
the men whose money bought the
structure are niad Is putting it mildly.
Already suit for damages has been de
cided on, and backed by the Ocean
Park Improvement company, a fight
such as never before resulted between
the two warring communities is prom
ised.

ACTION AGAINST
HESPERIA COMPANY
Special to The Herald.
SAN BERNARDINO, May 17.— A
suit has been filed by I. R. Wilbur of
Los Angeles against the Hesperla
Land and Water company to compel
it to accept $45,000 for certain lands in
Hesperla and Victor district, and for
damages in the sum of $100,000 because
of the failure of the defendant to con
summate the deal, which the plaintiff
claims had been agreed to. He claims
the defendant company agreed to sell
him certain lands for $50,000, of which
$5000 was paid down and the deed to
be placed in escrow until the last $45,
000 was paid. It is believed here that
the lands were wanted for the con
struction of the proposed Victor dam,
which would provide Irrigation watei
for thousands of acres of land along
the Mojave river.

MONROVIA, May 17.— The nine
teenth anniversary of the founding of
the city of Monrovia, a year of prog
ressive work by the board of trade nnd
the passing of a period of remarkable
growth were celebrated here this even-
Ing by n banquet at Hotel La Vista
CJrnnde, nt which over a hundred men
were seated nt one table nnd talked
of the city's pnst and future.
H. S. McKee, who has nerved as
president of the board of trade for the
past year, presided aa tonstmaster nt
an immense horseshoe table, where
decorations of red geraniums and mar
guerites carried out the national colors.
Frank J. Cornea, elected president for
the ensuing year, responded to the toast
of "Monrovia." In a very bright address
Father J. J. Sheehy told what the board
of trade Is and what It should be.
Father Sheehy laid emphasis upon
the Individuality of the members of the
board and declared thnt, given a man
who prosecuted his own business with
dispatch, he should also develop thnt
unselfishness which made him attend
to the business of the town with the
same initiative. He should be In edu
cation, alertness nnd ability, not the
man of yesterday, or last week, not
the man of the peaceful, contented dis
position, but the active man looking
every day for an improvement. Ho
dwelt on his own relations with the
board of trade and urped them to ex
tend to all newcomers the hand of
good will in the name of universal
charity, and to uphold the reputation
of their town in morals as well as In
enterprise.
Many prominent men from Los An
geles were present, Judge B. N. Smith
responding to the toast "Southern Cal
ifornia." Among others were General
Johnstone Jones, Judge H. A. Price and
Colonel Tom Thornton. There were
representatives from El Monte, Duarte,
Sierra Madre nnd other valley towns.

Word comes from tho desert side of
the county that New' river is higher
now than has ever been seen by any
one In the valley. Thero are no bridges

as full of water as It will hold, and

The play "Mariana" Is the story of
the tragedy bringing on a "repent of
history" — or whnt'nlmost amounts to
one. It Is n tremendous story with a
tremendous cllmnx and a splendidly
unexpected finale, that roused the
audience out of the stupor of dullness
they had naturally fnllen Into during
the first three nets. The climax wan
nverlong In coming. But Miss An
glln's gowns kept the women on the
qttl vive trying to get the details; the
play was given up In despair. It flound
ers for almost three solid acts with no
situations, no plot, nnd some forced
character portrayals thrown In — as the
antiquary's— to fill up.
Mariana Is a volatile, beautiful, vo
luptuous, hot-tempered coquette, her
one tragedy her mother's story; even
her husband's death on her marriage
day had left her cold. Her mother,
under an evil spell, is seduced from
home with her child, to finally die. .
Her child, Mariana, comes back to
her own, but comes back to fall under
the Influence of the son of the very
man who had ruined her mother. To
oscape from this mutual passion she
marries another man, to be finally shot
down by her husband before her lover's
eyes— her own wish, to be saved from
herself.
It is a play with but one character —
Mariana's. The other principals are
but foils, and the minors but help to
clutter the action of a play that in the
hands of a great playwright might be
a great production.
Miss Anglin was seen at her best
in the title role. Her changes from
grave to gay, passion giving place
to tears, mockery to love, were wonder
fully managed and saved the vapidly
unconvincing earlier scenes; at the
finale, her passion fighting her old ter
ror of the repeated history of her
mother, she rises to a tremendous sus
tained power. It is a climax that a
drop of a second would ruin.
The other members of the company
fill their parts creditably. In
Joaquln, Arthur Lawrence does a fine
piece of work. Frank Worthing is a
wonderfully poetic Danlelo; It is a role
that fits the sensitive presence of the
man; he brings to the final scene and
its setting a thrill of power.
"Mariana," re-done by a playwright
with judgment enough to condense and
vivify the foolery of the first two acts,
might be a great emotional drama.
Kneisel Quartet's Return
The Kneisel quartet will play a re

torium tomorrow evening. They are

MUST ELIMINATE
POLITICS FIRST
BEFORE TRYING MUNICIPAL
OWNERSHIP
NOT A SUCCESS OTHERWISE
German Profesoar, Studying American
Institutions and Economics,
Gives Views on Great
Question
"Municipal ownership Is meeting
with success In Qermany. Nearly all
cities own their water nnd lighting
plants nnd some nre operating their
street railways. I do not bellevo suc
cessful munlclpHl ownership of public
utilities Is possible where the lines of
politics are closely drawn."
This Is the statement of Prof. D.
Darmstetler, a close student of the po
litical Institutions of his own country,
and now In America for a year's study
along the same. lines, after which he
returns to Germany to take' the chair
of American history and political In
stitutions In Berlin university.
He arrived In Los Angeles yesterday
for a four day's visit hero, during
which time he will investigate the city
nnd county government, visit points of
Interest about Los Angeles and then
continue his journey to San Francisco.
"I am not making the nssertlon that,
because we find municipal ownership
to work successfully in Germany, it
will work elsewhere,, with equal suc
cess," continued Prof. Darmstetler.
"The people of Germany and the polit
ical Institutions of the towns are
quite different from those In America.
"In Germany we do not have the
machinations of politics in town gov
ernment. Where that exists I cannot
nee a very bright future for the city
owning its own public utilities.
Germans Not Roamers
"Germans do not have the American
habit of- moving from city to city.
Families grow up and live and die lv
the towns of my country, and that, of
course, gives a stability to every muni
cipality, removes the Idea of mere poli
tics, and makes every individual take
pride in working for the best interests
of his city.
"I do not wish to speak on American
cities, because I do not know their
conditions, and this question must be
worked out by each city for itself."
Prof. Darmstetler has been in the
United States for the past six weeks,
during which time he visited Wash
ington, where he was shown every
courtesy in his investigations.
The past month he has spent In the
south, studying the negro question, but
Is loath to talk of the results of his
investigations.
He Is greatly interested in the govern
ment's control and disposition of th»
public lands and In addition to his
researches at Washington, will visit
the land office here, as well as making
observations of the county and city
government.
He will remain in the United States

PLAN TO EXTEND THE
TEMPLE STREET LINE
Application Filed for Franchise to Tra.
t verse Northwesterly Course
From City Limits
What is said to be a plan of the Pa
cific Electric railway to extend its Tem
ple street line for a mile and a half be
yond the city limits into a country
which would prove a splendid feeder,
develops in the application by private
individuals for a franchise from the
board of supervisors for a railway to
run in a northwesterly direction from
the city limits of Los Angeles.
The individuals seeking the franchise,
which they ask shall be made to ex
tend over a period of forty years, are
George Rhelnchild, R. Rlgby and Irx
ing It. Itlgby, the latter two composing
the Broadway Land company.
Heal estate men say that the building
of such a line would open up an ex
tensive area as a residence district.
The line, according to the specifica
tions, If the franchise Is granted, will
be constructed as follows:
Course of New Line
Commencing at the Intersection of
Temple street and Woodward avenue;
thence In a northerly direction over
Woodward avenue to and across Santa
Monica avenue to Avery avenue; thence
In the same general direction on Avery
avenue to Benefit street; thence across
Benefit street to Terrace avenue; thence
on Terrace avenue to Sunset boule
vard; thence on Sunset boulevard, in a
northwesterly direction about 400 feet,
across Sunset avenue; thence north
over private property to Prospect ave
nue; thence across Prospect avenue to
a point at or nearly equidistant from
Vermont avenue and Talmage street;
thence northerly in direct courses over
private property to Franklin avenue;
thence across Franklin avenue; thence
in the same general direction over pri
vate property north to Myrtle avenue;
thence north across Myrtle avenue;
thence In the same general direction
north over private property to Los Fe
!lz avenue; thence across Los Fellz ave
nue, in LO3 Angeles county.
The southern terminal of the line at
Woodward avenue and Temple street,-
Is within five blocks of the northern
terminal of the Temple street line of
th« Pacific Kleetrie, and without an
entrance Into the heart of the city by
mrans of the Pacific Electric company's
rails would be of little practical use.

WHAT BECOMES
OF CITY GARBAGE
98 PER CENT OF REFUSE IS
NOT CREMATED
POLICE DEPARTMENT BEER
Investigation by Health . Department
Reveals Startling Facta Regard*
Ing Collection and Disposal
of Garbage
But two tons of the 100 tons of gar
bage per day produced In Log Angeles
Is being cremated by C. A. Alexander,
the garbage contractor, according to re
ports made to the board of health laat
night by Sanitary Inspector Furtsch.
Alexander Is supposed to collect the
garbage of the city and cremate It In
his crematory south of the city. For
this the city haa been paying him $1790
per month, and recently $450 per month
wns added, making a total of $2240.
Many complaint* have been received
by the health department regarding the
dump which adjoins the crematory and
where the tin cans and other lncom
bustibles are supposed to be dumped.
The sanitary inspector found that &
great deal of garbage was being put.
on this dump. He says he asked some
men who were doing the dumping and
they told him in each case that the
garbage was so mixed with lncombus
tibles that they could not burn it.
Every citizen of Los Angeles knows
that the garbage collectors refuse In
all cases to receive refuse, if It Is mixed
In any way, and the board of health
declares that the collectors mix the gar
bage themselves and then throw the
whole mass on the . dump to save the
expense of burning it.
Garbage Fed to Hogs
The health department says that Los
Angeles produces 100 tons of garbage
per day. What becomes of the ninety
eight tons a day which does not reach
the crematory? It Is fed to hogs and
part of it thrown on the dump or else-_
where, they say, adding 1 that it's cheap
er for the contractor. It Is disclosed he
collects' less than ten tons per day.
The report of the city chemist showed
that one sample of beer for the police'
department had been examined. The'
board desired to know what this means,:
and wondered if the "dry Sunday" had
even affected the department to the
extent that it was about to lay in a
supply and wanted only pure beer.
Another indication of the fear that
Los Angeles Is to be a dry town was
noticed when the board was asked to'
grant 127 permits for the selling of milk
In the city.
The ordinance giving the health de
partment power to destroy condemned
fruit and vegetables was read before
the board and it was decided to recom
mend to the council that the ordinance
be adopted.
