Wednesday the Kentucky society will
make another effort today, when the
entire society, 300 strong, will again
gd to Redondo with the intention of
visiting the battleship.
Wednesday the sea was so heavy

party made the effort they were un
able to reach the ship. In this effort

Asserts That. "The Breakers," Staged
by the Y. M.'l., Is Misleading
Regarding the Sons of the
Emerald Isle
Stating that the Irish were not set
for.th in the proper light in "The
Breakers," a, drama given by the
Young Men's institute of St. Patrick's
parish last Tuesday night, Rev. P. J.
O'Reilly, the pastor, made an address
following the play in which he de
nounced In no uncertain terms the Idea
of ridiculing the Irish, saying that he
himself was born In the Emerald Isle
and did not consider "The Breakers"
as properly representing the race that
had furnished the saint after whom
their parish was named.
The Y. M. I. had labored some time
on the drama, giving it last Tuesday
night, in order to raise funds to pay
for the Y. M. I. window in the new
St. Patrick's church. The institute
was formed some three years ago in
the parish* but has only become on a
sound footing in the last year. Instead
of words of reproof they had looked
for commendation from their pastor,
and were greatly shocked at the im
pression it had given him as he stated
plainly at the end of the evening. W.
B. Clark, who has been president of
the institute and i choir master since
the organization of the parish, mailed
his resignation to Father O'Reilly last
Wednesday, the day following the
drama and Its unlooked for ending.
Had Confidence in Y. M. I.
Father O'Reilly said that he had had
confidence In the judgment of the
young men and. had not attended the
rehearsals, relying on that judgment.
The young men say that three-fourths
of those taking part were of Irish
blood and that they could see nothing
wrong In It. •>!-- .'__-__.__
Father O'Reilly stated last night that
there was nothing personal In his re
proof,- but that he considered it Tils
duty to publicly state that he did not
approve of the drama given by a so
ciety In his parish. The Irish dialect
was particularly displeasing to Father
O'Reilly, who returned a few weeks
ago from a European trip, during
which he spent some time In Ireland,
Father O'Reilly says that he does
not look for any dissension following
his public reproof, but the members of
the Y. M. I. are feeling it very sorely
and at their . meeting next Tuesday
evening some spirited discussions are
looked forward to.
Father O'Reilly stated last night that
he considered that he had taken th*'
right stand and would follow It out
on that line, saying that he would do
it over again should he be placed in
the same position. -7

A decision was yesterday rendered
by the district attorney's office in re
gard to the petition of the Boys' and
Girls' Aid society of South Pasadena,
which organization asked the board of
supervisors to give it assistance in re
fitting Its hospital. The opinion states
that under the law the $400 asked for
cannot be appropriated, and suggests
that the board can find a way out of
the dlfflcuilty by caring for inmates of
the society's home as county charges
and paying the management for this
expense. * _ '

Councllmen Desiring to insure Wages
for Laborers on Holidays Find
Obstacles In the
The plan of some members of tho<
city council to put all laborers in the (
street, park and other departments on
the monthly payroll rather than on a
per diem basis Is meeting with opposi
tion among the men themselves. Coun
cilman Bernard Healy suggested the
change on the theory that when holi
days intervene lt will Insure pay for
these laborers, who now lose wages
when not working. ■■,
Inspector of Public Work D. K. Ed
wards says the ordinance would be all
right in some respects if it were flex
ible, but conditions are such that the
seasons of the year have much to do
with expenditures.
Mr. Edwards, to whom the proposed
ordinance was referred, said yesterday:
"I have looked over the ordinance
and regard most of the changes made
as a reasonable compensation, but the
ordinance contemplates an entire
change in the policy of handling many
of the men, the wisdom of which I very
much question. It would not perhaps
Increase the expenditures of the de
partment where men are employed all
the year round, but there are difficul
ties arising out of handling monthly
men in this department.
"For instance, street hand sweepers.
It Is necessary to put some of these to
work on important uptown locations
Sundays and holidays. Some sprink
ling wagons also must be run on Sun
days and holidays. It would not be
Just to monthly men on the same basis
to ask some of them to work on Sun
days and holidays and others not.
"It Is not practicable to change
places with some men in these posi
tions, as their unfamiliarlty with local
ities renders them unable to give good
service. A man accustomed to sprink
ling outlying graveled streets with the
ordinary sprinklers would be very
. awkward and put to great disadvan
tage and perhaps endangered in at
temping to give service in uptown
sprinkling with wagons equipped dif
ferently." /
Legislation Like New York's Planned,
;;\ Requiring Frequent Removal of
Filth and Destruction of
Breeding Spots
Health Officer L. M. Powers is heart
ily In favor of the campaign against
house flies started in New York city.
He says, hqwever, that fly paper and
poison alone will not do it; the piles
of stable refuse must be removed fre
quently or kept in covered receptacles
to check the spread of flies.
It is probable that an ordinance will
be introduced In the Los Angeles city
council requiring that manure must
be hauled away daily and that cov
ered receptacles must be provided to
contain it. This tends to prevent the
winged pests from harboring there.
"The eggs of the flies are deposited
in manure heaps as a rule," said Dr.
Powers, "and the heat generated by
decaying matter hatches them. In all
decaying matter flies breed rapidly,
but the manure piles are probably the
greatest breeding factors.
"Flies, like rats, scatter contagion
and pollution In many ways. They
rest on all kinds of offal and putrid
matter, decaying vegetables, cesspools
and garbage cans, then alight in milk
and food vessels or plates, If they get
Into dwellings, thus conveying germs
everywhere to human beings. Window
screens alone do not keep them out.
"Much of the infant mortality is
traceable to the files."

CHICAGO, April 23.—"The cat Is now
In our possession and ready for
analysis." -"■
Such Is the declaration in an affi
' davit Attorney John Francis Tyrrell
presented to Coroner Hoffman yester
day In an endeavor to have the body of
Mrs. Mary Butler exhumed.
On the examination of the dead cat
will depend the necessity of making a
chemical analysis of the woman's
stomach, and before the matter Is en
tirely disposed a $7000 estate ' may
change hands.
Thomas Cunningham, an adopted son
of the dead woman's former husband,
John Cunningham, disappointed in
finding that Mrs. Butler had be
queathed her estate to strangers, as
serts that she was poisoned and of
fers the carcass of the cat to prove
his suspicions.
Mrs. Butler died February 26. Cun
ningham avers that a pet cat ate some
of the same food Mrs. Butler had eaten
and that it died in convulsions.

Agile Sailors Quickly Make Drifting
Craft Fast and No Damage
Results Except to the
Redondo was the objective. for
thousands of battleship visitors and
dance seekers yesterday. Hundreds
who failed to reach the battlers the
day before came out again hop that
the seas would be more favorable, and
only a few were disappointed.
Towards evening, however, the wa
ters became a -it stormy again and
those Inclined to mal de mar suffered
the pangs of seasickness.
A thrilling feature of the afternoon
was the drifting away of a boatload or
passengers, while being towed ashore
by a launch of the Kentucky.
The private boats were unable to
take off the people as rapidly as neces
sary, and Captain Cowles ordered sev
eral of the boat's launches into serv
One launch towed a boatload, and
when a few hundred feet nearer In
land, the sailor who held the rope
around a cleat, playing it out now
and then, slipped, and the rope quickly
loosened Itself from its holding place.
The sailor grabbed for it, despite the
slip and strain, but missed it.
Some of the women became hys
terical promptly, and the people on the
warship and on shore looking on ex
pected to see the smaller craft cap
size. In a few minutes, however, an
other rope had been thrown to the
drifting craft and It was seized by
the two sailors, who made it fast.
The Kentucky was the scene of sev
eral pleasant reunions during the aft
ernoon, as many members of the Ken
tucky society going as could get away
a second time after making a fruitless
trip to Redondo the day before.
One party Included Mrs. Kthel Depot,
formerly of San Francisco; Miss Lottie
Handcock of Highland Park, and Miss
Clara Dale, formerly of Nebraska. An
other party Included Mrs. J. Winters
and Miss Helen Thompson and friends.
During the day large quantities of
flowers were sent to the Kentucky and
the Illinois.
A big dance In the ■ evening at the
Casino concluded the festivities.
NEW YORK, April 23.— special
cable dispatch from Berlin states that
Oscar Hammerstein has decided to

cussed opera, "Salome," at the Man
