DOOR OF HOPE IS
HOME FOR GIRLS
MANY UNFORTUNATES FIND
Given Instruction in Sewing, Cooking,
Housekeeping, and Nearly All Be.
come Respectable, Self.
Hundreds of young unfortunate girls
in Los Angeles< and in the cities of the
neighboring counties find a good homi
at tho Door of Hope, located at 119
North Daly street.
Hardly a week passes but some young
girl who has at some time in her life
met misfortune and trouble finds her
way to this institution. According to
the authorities there they not only find
a good home but a place where their
education may go on.
Their instruction Is along the lines of
sewing, cooking, housekeeping and in
the carrying out of the Ideas of prac
tical Christian usefulness. As a gen
eral rule young girls who find their
way to that institution develop into
respectable self-supporting women and
often take up the work of the Institu
tion in other parts of the state.
Many of the unfortunate girls who
are brought each week to the Door of
Hope find their way there through the
efforts of Miss Steele, the Travelers'
Aid guard at the Southern Pacific sta
tion. But all over the city there are
many women who have taken a great
interest in the Daly street home and
are doing much toward directing young
Business men also, actuated by Chris
tian motives, do much in furthering
the mission of the Door of Hope.
The police are much praised by the
directors of the institution for guiding
many wayward girls to its doors. Oc
casionally young girls come there of
their own volition. The latter often
bring the most pitiful tales with them,
and to a vistor Matron Bell can tell
many heartrending tales which she has
gleaned from these young women who
have come there in this fashion.
The Door of Hope has now been estab
lished a little more than three years
and is supported by the public. Many
of the girls who have found their way
there are now married. Several of
them have been placed in responsible
positions in the institution.
Mrs. J. B. Bonsley, who was matron
of the home for nine years until August
24, when she resigned because of ill
ness, is one of the most noted rescue
workers in the city.
"HAD NO RECALL PETITION,"
DECLARES JOE MARGOLIS
EIGHTH WARD POLITICIAN SAYS
TROUBLE IS BREWING
Opponent of Councilman Healy Says
Another Meeting Will Be Held, at
Which Only Residents of the Ward
Will Be Present
"Jos Bellue who has been acting as
chairman of the Eighth ward Healy
recall committee of five, unintentional
ly placed me in an unfortunate position
yesterday by allowing the Information
to get abroad that I had a recall peti
tion in my shop to which no signatures
had been attached," said Joe Margolis
yesterday; "When this information
reached the voters of the ward they
accused me of having been bought by
the Southern Pacific in order that no
one might sign It.
"I have had no petition in my shop
nor anywhere else. If Joe Bellue had
any petitions to circulate he must have
kept them in his pocket for I saw
none in any part of the ward and do
not believe any are being circulated.
"We are not going about this busi
ness In this way. What we are doing
is being done secretly and it Is possible
that before very long- we will make
public everything that has been ac
complished In the ward since last
Tuesday night. When we are ready to
tell what we have done those who be
lieve that the movement is dead will
probably be astonished. There are peo
ple In this thing who have not been
mentioned and whom no one suspects
of being interested.
"We have to work quietly and secret
ly because there are railroad agents all
over the ward, who would try to spoil
our plans If they became known. Next
Tuesday night we will have a meeting
and it will not be like the one last
Tuesday night. It will be an Eighth
ward meeting and we will then prob
ably let it be known what we have
"If we bring this thing to a recall
there will be a good candidate for
Barney Healy's job. We haven't got
money enough to get In and elect any
body that we might choose to put up,
so we must have a strong man. But
tho&e who have been mentioned as
candidates are a mile away. It will
not be Tom Savage, nor Ben Groves,
nor E. L. Hutchlnson. The man for
the place has been selected and he will
be made known at the proper time."

RESCUE HOME FOR GIRLS IS CARRYING ON GREAT WORK
Mrs. J. E. Bonsley, Former Matron of the Door of Hope
SATS COUNCIL HAS NO EIGHT
TO BEOPEN RAILWAY LINE
City Attorney Asserts Committee of Twenty Will
Encounter Snag — .Residents of District
Demand Renewal of Car Service
When the committee of twenty from
the South Park avenue district calls
upon the city council Monday morning
to insist that the city preserve nothing
morfl than an armed neutrality and
make some agreement with the Los
Angeles Railway company whereby
operations may he resumed on the
South Park avenue electric line it is
likely to meet with an unexpected
shock, for the council will have no legnl
right to enter into such an agreement.
Such is the opinion of Assistant City
Attorney Goudge. the official who in
all probability will be called upon to
solve the knotty problem for the coun
cil at its session Monday.
Judge York, by dissolving his own
temporary injunction, has decreed that
the Los Angeles railway has no right
to operate a line on San Pedro street,
south of Thirtieth, and on South Park
avenue to Slauson avenue. The law
decrees that a franchise can he secured
In but one way and the council has no
authority to enter into an agreement
with the street . car company or any
other person or corporation to operate
any kind of a street car line except In
the regular and lawful manner.
If the council should consider that
it Is a law unto itself and in defiance
of the statute, which defines the man
ner In which franchises shall be
granted, should enter Into an illegal
agreement with the railway, there is
nothing on earth to prevent Mayor
McAleer taking another force of men
and again tearing up the tracks.
May Repeat Act
In the frame of mind in which the
mayor now finds himself, it is highly
probable that should anything of thi?
nature occur he will repeat his act of
last Thursday afternoon. Mayor Mc-
Aleer says he has determined that the
railway company shall not use any
street in the city without a legal right
to do so.
When M. M. Davison, chairman of
the committee of twenty, was told of
the legal snag which he and his col
leagues would face when they present
their petition to the council he was not
at all dismayed.
"Common sense, Judge York has often
told me, is law, and it is common sense
that he have our street car line. Of
course we want Mr. Huntington to pay
for the privilege eventually, but there
must be some way of patching up a
compromise until the supreme court
can decide on the question. We are not
coming up to the council Monday morn
ing with any red flags and threats of a
general recall if our petition is not
granted. We are law-abiding citizens
and will do all that we intend to do in
a quiet and orderly way. We believe
that somehow, in some way, an agree
ment can be made whereby the city
will lose none of its rights, and yet
the service can be continued until the
supreme court has rendered its decision.
Then if the decision is adverse to the
railway company let Mr. Huntington
come In and buy the franchise in regu
lar and proper way. If he should re
fuse to do this then the city would have
a perfect right to the street and we
would be the last ones to complain.
Property Decreases in Value
"It is unfortunate that we must suf
fer because the mayor does what he
believes to be his honest duty, but such
Is the case. During the last few days
our property has depreciated In value
very greatly and we are Inconvenienced
by having to walk long distances to
reach our homes after leaving the Cen
tral avenue or Maple avenue street
lines. These lines are half a mile away
in either direction. Our committee will
meet Monday morning at 9:30 o'clock
In the committee room at the city hall,
and Will A. Harris, whom we have
engaged as attorney in the case, will
then tell us what we shall do. We will
then go before the council and ask to
have our service renewed."

the railway line that was interrupted
by the action of the mayor.
A member of the audience at Friday
night's meeting begged Chairman Davi
son not to put a single real estate man
on the committee, as it would make It
appear just what some are now in
clined to call it — a real estate scheme.
Not Real Estate Scheme
"But it is not. a real estate scheme,"
Insisted Mr. Davison. "We live in that
vicinity and we find It difficult to get
to our homes without the service we
have been enjoying for the last two
Other members of the committeee
agreed with their chairman, but con
tend that even If It was a real estate
scheme the city has no right to de
preciate the value of their property by
depriving them of the car service that
made the property valuable. This; they
contend, is hut another argument why
the council should restore the service.
But the residents and property own
ers who profit by the South Park ave
nue service are not the only ones who
will suffer on account of inconvenient
street car service. Ascot park will be
opened during the latter part of next
month, and the frequenters of the
tracks will have a hard time to make
connections unless the service Is speed
ily restored by a compromise with the
council. While the street car company
did everything possible to delay action
when it was operating under an in
junction and thereby gained a two
years' respite the company will make
every effort to facilitate the speedy de
cision of the supreme court, now that
the city has the whip hand, unless the
council should grant a compromise
pending the decision. But by the
quickest legal process which could be
brought to bear it will be at least three
months, in the opinion of Assistant
City Attorney Goudge, before the court
can render a decision, and by that time
the Ascot park season would be ended.
Route to Ascot
It is possible to get to Ascot park
without going over the South Park ave
nue lines, but the ways are not as con
venient. The Central avenue cars run
down Central avenue to Slauson ave
nue and then around by the entrance
to the park, without coming within a
block of that • portion of South Park
avenue over which the city has juris
diction, and the Pacific Electric cars
connect with the south end of the park,
but the Maple avenue and San Pedro
street routes will have to be abandoned
as far as reaching Ascot park is con
Should the council take it upon itself
to compromise with the railway, pend
ing the decision of the supreme court,
it would not only be illegal, contend at
torneys who are Interested In the city's
side of the case, but it might be years
before the case would be passed on by
the supreme court. The company found
it profitable to operate the railway
under an injunction for two years, and
prevented Judge York from dissolving
his injunction by numerous continu
ances of the case, and the attorneys
believe the company may use the same
tactics with the supreme court. It Is
expected, however, that If any compro
mise is reached It will contain a clause
by which all profits received from the
operation of the line will revert to the
city In case the city's action is up
held by the supreme court.
No Breach of Faith
The charge of breach of faith, which
friends of the railway company have
preferred against the council and the
mayor. Is denied by Attorney Goudge.
The friends of the company declare
that when the electric line was laid on
South Park avenue the railway's at
torneys went to the council and secured
a promise from that body that the
tracks would not he molested until the
supreme court had had an opportunity
to pass on the validity of the franchise.
"We declared that unless restrained

by the courts we would go out there
and tear up the tracks if they were
laid," said Mr. Goudge. "and on this
understanding the ralway company
secured an order of court restraining
ub from such action. Had the company
been operating under any valid agree
ment with the council the injunction
would not have been necessary. We
were simply held in leash until the
court dissolved the injunction and then
we did what we threatened to do. We
were no longer restrained by the courts,
and so we tore up the tracks. It was
merely the continuance of an operation
begun two years ago.
"Had we not made these threats there
would have been nothing for the su
preme court to decide. If we told the
railway company that we had no in
tention of tearing up their tracks, the
wholo thing would have ended right
there. But we did make the threats
and we fulfilled them Just as soon as

cussed and some conclusion arrived at.

The shopping event of the week
among hundreds who feasted their
eyes upon modish garments and made
purchases was the grand opening at
"TerriU's," the popular dressmaker it
338 and 340 South Hill street. The
lovely gowns and garments, beautiful
and gorgeous, were lavishly displayed
In elegant taste. In the display were
fetching gowns, evening wraps and
empires from the following celebrated
Parisian houses: Paquln, Templier,
Kaudnttz, Beers', Doucet and Drecoll.
Terrill has only the newest things and
the elaborate display was not only
artistic and beautiful but was probably
one of the most costly exhibitions ever
shown in Los Angeles.
Among the attractive garments were
a pale blue chiffon velvet gown
heavly embroidered in blue and ma
hogany; an elegant gown of silver
cloth, all hand embroidered with gar
lands of roses, a dull yellow satin em
broidered in brown, with garlands of
roses, which produces a beau
tiful and artistic effect; a peacock
spangle gown from Drecoll, and gowns
of cloth and stiver and silver lace
combined that won universal admira
tion and praise for their elegance and
beauty. In the collection were also
spangle dresses, chiffon gowns, empire
cloaks, lace cloaks, embroidered gowns,
and beautiful wraps of every descrip
tion, as well as nobby tailored suits
and leather automobile coats.
