KRYL TO HAVE
HIS OWN BAND
LION-MANED CORNETIST PLANS
More Than ■ Score of the Best Players
In the Country Have Signed tho
Roll of the New Musical
Bohumlr Kryl, who with his concert
company dedicated the new polytech
nic school Friday afternoon, were the
principal factors In a delightful con
cert at Venice last night. Together
with Ellery's band they filled tho new
I'altn garden there, and the combina
tion proved one of the strongest draw
ing cards Venice has yet afforded.
Kryl himself In pnßt criticism In hla
cornet work. 110 la the acknowledged
virtuoso on hlfl chosen Instrument, and
Is well remembered us the one nensn
tlon.il success of the Muy festivals last
spring, the last events In the old
Hazard's pavilion. The llon-mivned
player has rven added to his technique
since he was last heard here, and his
work both at the hl«h school and at
Venice was pre-eminent. With him
are the son and daughter of Max Heln
rlch, both of whom are excellent, and
Miss Ilobert, who Is quite In their high
class. The company Is a delight.
Kryl, however. Is not content with his
present greatness, nnd is reaching out
for new fields, In which he is bound to
succeed. Ho will no longer be Efitlsflcd
with being soloist nnd assistant director
of other men's bunds, even though those
other bands be Sousa's. He will this
season have a band of his own. A
rumor to this effect went out a couplo
of months ago, and already he has
offers for almost his entire summer sea
son, so popular Is he.
During the last few years Kryl has
frequently conducted the best bunds in
America, and has shown himself as
much a mastor with the baton as with
tho cornet. Now he proposes to com
bine his talents and to conduct his own
band, while retaining hla position a«
cornet soloist premier In his own or
ganization. This unique combination
will afford him the opportunity of
showing his uonductorship and will yet
retain on the stand the one great cor
lictlst of the present generation.
Arrangements have already been
made for the band and a score or more
of the best bandsmen in the United
States have eagerly signed its roll. Th»
band will consist of fifty pieces, with
vocal and instrumental soloists of the
first rank, and will embrace all the
summer parks. Next winter a coast
season is in prospect and Los Angelas
may have the pleasure yet of hearing
the great cornetist und watching him
direct in the same organization.
Kryl has played several nearby dates
during the last week, and everywhere

RAISE OBJECTION TO

Prominent Citizens Say Device Would Surely Mean
Elimination of Independent Voter;
and Easy to Defraud
"While Los Angeles has been negotiat

Voting Machine company to purchase
fifty-two voting machines at $700 each
Milwaukee has been buying the same
machine for $500," was the statement
made by City Clerk Lelande yesterday.
Mr. Lelande's Information whs con

city clerk of Milwaukee.
Since the proposition to purchase the
voting machines was first broached
City Clerk Lelande has been In corre
spondence with other cities which have
purchased them. Not only has Los

the machines than eastern cities but
other California cities have paid the

Milwaukee Is not the only city In thn
east that has received the machines at
a considerable reduction from the prlcea
asked in San Francisco. Members at

from two cities In Ohio that they also
have bought the United States
Standard of the same size which till*
city has contracted for for $500 each.

The factory Is at Jamestown, N. V.,
and the greater distance of California
from the factory can have no effect on
the prices, for this Is the cost of the
machine at the factory and freight
must be paid In addition.
During the absence of the council
on the Owens river Junket Mayor Me*
Aleer vetoed the contract to purchase
the fifty-two voting machines, and It
Is believed at Monday's meeting the
council will reconsider Its action and
advertise for new bids.

want the voting machine at any price,
