LOS ANGELES . HERALD': TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER; Vj, xqo*. U
filled out and forwarded to Tho Herald
office will count as one vote. There
is another and better way of rolling
up a large count quickly, however,
and that is by getting your friends
and relatives to subscribe for the
paper and cast their votes for you. If
they already take The Herald get
them to send the paper to an eastern
friend or relative. It will serve as
promotion literature for California and
establish a dally correspondence. A
fow dollars cannot be better invested
than in purchasing The Herald from
one to five years in advance for your
self. For every cent spent in this
contest there is value given for
amount received. Unlike other con
tests, votes are not purchased merely
for the purpose of securing votes, but
there Is a cent's worth of news ex
changed for every cent turned Into
The Herald office. Now is the time
to get In and work for some popular
saleslady whom you think is deserv
ing and would appreciate one of the
valuable prizes now being offered.
These prizes are tha most liberal ever
offered by any southern California
paper, and it can be considered from
the standpoint of a handsome Christ
mas present. The successful candi
dates will receive orders for the prizes
immediately at the close of the con
test, and it is optional with them
to make selections to their own liking.
The first prize, a Grand Upright Kings
bury Piano, can be had in either oak
or mahogany. Second prize can be
had in either earrings or a twin dia
mond ring, valued at $225. The third
prize, a ladies' diamond ring, valued
at $150. The fourth prize can be had
in either a tailor made suit or gown,
valued at $100, and the fifth prize in
either a tailor made suit or gown,
valued at $50. The votes -were not
"counted on Sunday, but the vote of
yesterday was . quite heavy, as will
be noticed in the changes, and by to
night the numbers will have reached
well up in the thousands.
There wasn't one young lady dis
couraged by yesterday's count, which
is good evidence of grit and "stick
toltiveness" of the candidates. They
are all In it to win, and a very inter
esting tug-of-war is promised. A few
hundred votes, or even a thousand,
does not make much difference now,
as the contest is so young. It is In
its infancy yet and every young lady
has an equal chance of winning one
of the five prizes. Now is the time
for the candidates to get in their work.
A few gotten on the start are worth
ten times the amount later on. Get
your friends in line and solicit their
patronage; and you need have no
fear of not being successful.
Receipt books, subscription blanks,
etc., for securing subscriptions will be
gladly furnished to all who desire
them if the want is made knowh at

COMPANY NOT A COMPETITOR
Representative of Mojavo Water En.
terprlse Says Concern Is Not to
Oppose Owens Scheme
"J. H. Braly, president of the South
ern California Savings bank, has been
done an Injustice by being accused of
having a large financial Interest in the
Mojave water scheme," said A. E.
Poole, yesterday, "and we have been
done an injustice by the satement that
we are coming Into Los Angeles and
compete with power companies and the
Owens river water scheme. Mr. Braly
has not one cent's Interest In the enter
prise, nor has his bank, and we are not
coming Into Los Angeles to compete
Mr. Poole is the representative of the
eastern capitalists who have acquired
the rancho Verde, with all riparian
rights of the Mojavo river. The
company that has acquired these
rights has not definitely decided what
to do with them. There are two courses
that are open, both of which promise
excellent results. One Is to irrigate tha
agricultural land in tho vlcinty, a total
of about 200,000 acres, and the other
Is to bring the water over the moun
tains and furnish some of the Southern
California cities with It for domestic
"The statement that we paid $350,000
for the ranch Is another falsity with
which we have had to- contend. We
paid much less than this and with the
ranch secured about $107,000 worth of
personal property, such as cattle, horses,
and other, agricultural and ranching
facilities," continued Mr. Poole. "The
cost of moving the Santa Fe railroad
from the reservoir bed will be less
than $150,000, and the company has
consented to be moved if we pay the
ORDINANCE A BAR TO
NEW REFINING PLANT
COUNCIL PROHIBITS SULPHUR
Former Councilman Todd Seizes Psy
chological Moment and Gets Law
Which Prevents Operation of Pro
posed Plant Within City Limits
The Intention of the fire commission
and thp mayor to encourage Industrie's
received a rude slap yesterday morning
when Attorney Robert A. Tood, for
merly councilman from the Eighth
ward sledded through an ordinance to
prohibit the building, operation or main
tenance of a sulphur refining plant
anywhere In the city limits. Ex-Coun
cilman Todd got this ordinance through
In a record breaking time, for it was
not two minutes from the time he
stated that he ana his former constit
uents wanted the ordinance until It had
passed by a unanimous vote of the
Mr. Todd chose an oportune time.
It was 12:30 o'clock and the motion to
adjourn for lunch had been made when,
before it was seconded, Mr. Todd
stepped to the front with his ordi
nance and in two sentences told what
It was. It was placed on its passage
and passed In a hurry, for the council
men were hungry and worif from tho
There had been no ordinance of this
nature before and thereby hangs a' tal°.
At the meeting of the fire commis
sion a week ago last Saturday, P. M.
Paulson, representing the StauiTer
Chemical company of San Francisco
asked for permission to insall a sul
phur refining plant in the block
bounded by St. James, St. John's rin J
Holly stcpet and the Santa Fe rallroal
The chemical company had purchased
the entire block for the purpose of
erecting the factory and as this com
pany has several similar institutions In
operation in the large cities of the
coast It believed It could secure a
permit without much trouble.
A mild protest was received from
property owners of the neighborhood,
who feared that the fumes from tho
factory would be unbearable, but Mr.
Paulson stated that the factory was
equipped with a device for preventing
fumes from escaping.
"We want to do all we can to en
courage the erection and operation, of
(actorles In Los Angeles, but before
we grant this permit we want to see
the plans of the fume destroying de
vice," said Mayor McAleer.
On this understanding the proposi
tion was laid over for two weeks, at
the request of Mr. Paulson, that a din»
gram might be prepared and presented
to the boafd. The case was to have
come up for final settlement yesterday,
A gas plant, an oil refinery and the
Santa Fe switch yards are now oper
ated In the locality where It was pro
posed to establish the sulphur plant.
"We don't want a sulphur plant."
was Mr. Todd's explanation. "We have
enough to bear with the gas plant and
the oil refinery, without having any
more odorous Institutions."
The Staufter Chemical company had
proposed to spend $100,000 in erecting
the plant and believed it saw a profit
able business ahead, as Southern Cali
fornia Is a large consumer of sulphur.
It is used In spraying fruit trees and
plants. In the curing of fruits and tho
manufacture of fertilizer. It is be
lieved that the ordinance will be re
pealed by the council.

DORSEY SYNDICATE WILL ASK
Rancher Watson Guilty of Speeding
Auto— Noted Guests of City.
Y. M. C. A. Friction.
114 East Colorado Street
PASADENA, Oct. 16.— Mayor Water
house and other city officials received
notice today that Wllber O. Dow,
manager for the Senator Dorsey Inter
ests In this section, will appear before
the city council at its regular meeting
tomorrow to ask for certain street
The lines projected extend east from
Lave avenue on Villa, East Orange
Grove and Mountain streets to the
great tract of land the Dorsey com
pany Intends to open for settlement
in the near future.
This seems to put the seal of truth
upon many of the rumors which have
been flying about concerning the new
scheme of Senator Dorsey and his as
sociates. The syndicate owns 380 acres
north of Villa and east of Hill streets
and Senator Dorsey is said to own the
beautiful Fair Oaks ranch, recently
purchased In that same section.
According to the city charter, all
franchises must be offered for sale to
the highest bidder. If It be true that
the Huntington forces are working In
harmony with those headed by Senator
Dorsey, as seems altogether probable,
the franchises will be secured without
opposition. The proposed lines will con
nect with Pacific Electric lines already
In operation In this city.
The police court had a long session
today on account of tha trial of C. A.
Watson, a Redlands rancher, accused
of speeding his automobile on Colorado
The case was vigorously contested,
but resulted in a verdict of guilty, a
verdict which the Redlands man says
he will not appeal from. The city a
side of the case waß well worked up,
some twenty witnesses being sub
poenaed to testify against the auto
It was shown that the machine wai
going at a speed exceeding ten miles
an hour, some of the witnesses ns
sertlng that it was as high as twenty
miles, and that although repeatedly
called to, the driver did not stop, but
after striking l'rosser and knocking
him down, went faster than before un
til out of sight.
Watson's attorney put up a stubborn
defense, but offered no evidence to off
set that of the city. Watson says that
he was going very Blowly, that sud
denly he saw two wheelmen have a
mlx-up and one of them ran in front
of the auto, so thnt the machine struck
the rear wheel. Police Judge Wood will
pronounce sentence tomorrow morning.
Educators Guests of City
Dr. Nathan C. Schaeffer and Prof. J.
N. Wllkerson, of the National Educa
tional association, were guests of Pas
adena this forenoon, going on to Los
Angeles at noon. They were met at an
early hour this morning by Dean
Chamberlain of Throop Polytechnic and
his brother. Prof. James Chamberlain
of the State Normal school at Los An
geles, and on their arrival on the Santa
Fe, were met by Secretary Coolldge of
the board of trade. After breakfast
the party took a long drive about the
city. Both pf the distinguished edu
cators were profuse In their praise of
the beauties of the Crown City, Presi
dent Schaeffer remarking that "Pasa
dena is the most beautiful city I have
even seen." Both gentlemen occupied
seats on the platform at the morning
chapel exercises at Throop and made
Inspiring addresses to the students.
President AVllkerson among other
things told the students that he was
Vsure that Pasadena Is the place where
one ought to get his impressions ot
Southern California, and Throop is a
very good place to get impressions of
Pasadena," a sentiment which pleased
the young people Immensely.

George W. Braden of the local Y. M. C.
A. will go before the board oi directors
tomorrow evening wltri a proposition
which in effect means that either he or
General Secretary Sams must resign.
For some time there has been more
or less friction between the two lead
ers in association work, said to be due
to Secretary Sams' Interference with
the work of the physical director. Un
less the directors can patch up tho
present difficulty one of the two will
probably give up the work. Friends
of the association, who admire both
young men as splendid workers and
natural leaders, hope that reports of
the present difficulty are exaggerated.
Younger members of the association
are circulating a petition in favor of
Mr. Braden to present to the board
tomorrow night •

BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY GROWS
Reports From Ventura Show Increase
In Output of Saccharine Pro.
Special to The Herald.
OXNARD, Oct. 16.— The growing of
sugar beets in this county, which In
dustry had its birth In 1898, Instead of
dying out, as was predicted by many,
has Increased and Is still Increasing.
Thp rrop of 1905, the bulk of which Is
harvested, was the largest, both in
acreage and yield, since the erection of
the factory. There were grave appre
hensions regarding the Deet and its
effect upon the soil. Many placed the
limit of time which land would suc
cessfully produce beets at three sea
sons. It was claimed that any orop
which went so far into the soil as the
sugar beet must soon sap all the vital
ity from the earth. But seven years
has shown this theory to be incorrect.
Land which has grown beets each suc
ceeding year has produced an excellent
crop this season, and the per cent of
saccharine matter has run high, 18 and
19 per cent being the average, while
some have gone as high as 25 and even
33 per cent.
With the successful season Just clos
ing the American Beet Sugar company
has decided to offer an advance In price
for the crop of 1906. Contracts will be
made at the following figures: The
minimum price to be paid will be $3.60
per ton for beets testing 11 per cent,
and for each 1 per cent of sugar above
that there will be paid 25 cents addi
tional up to and including 15 per cent.
This brings 16 per cent beets up to
$4.50 per ton. For each additional per
cent above 15. 30 cents per ton will be
paid. At this rate beets averaging 20
per cent will bring $6 per ton. This
advance in price will mean a larger
acreage next season than this, and
every effort will be put forth to bring
I about a high per cent of sugar.
