SAN PEDRO WATER
CO. IS JUBILANT
New Rates Fixed by City Council
on Report of Utilities Commis
sion Increases Revenue
LUSK DENIES WAS POPULIST
City Fathers Thank Attorney
Goudge for Clear Statement
of the Company's Case
Stockholders of the San Pedro Water
company were made happy yesterday
afternoon when the city council passed
the ordinance fixing the water rates for
San Pedro, Terminal Island and Wil
mington. The ordinance provides a se
ries of flat rates, and these rates give
this company a substantial Increase In
revenue over the rates under which it
has been operating and which were
fixed by the San Pedro city council be
Under the now rates the small con
sumer pays less and the large consumer
pays more, which is as it should be,
according: to the board of public utili
ties, which recommended the increased
rates. The new rates will give the
v San Pedro Water company several
thousands of dollars more a year than
it has been receiving.
The council believes this increase
justified, as the evidence produced at
the hearing showed the San Pedro
'company was making only about 2%
per cent on Its investment, and thin
neither the board of public utilities nor
the council considered a fair return.
After the ordinance passed, the coun
cil and H. J. Goudge, attorney for the
San Pedro Water company, exchanged
bouquets. Councilman Andrews thanked
Mr. Goudge for the clear, concise and
eminently fair way In which he had
presented the case of the water com
pany, and Mr. Goudge was profuse In
his thanks and laudations of the coun
cil for the settlement it had made.
Meyer Lissner, president of the board
of public utilities. In discussing the
matter denied a story published yester
day morning concerning the water
rates. The story declared that Llssner
had submitted a supplemental report In
which he had confessed his errors and
mistakes. Mr. Llssned declared that he
had done nothing of the kind—that ho
had taken figures submitted by the
company itself, and the board had
based its first report on these figures,
but that evidence submitted on the
stand, which the board had not been
able to get before, had brought about
the supplemental report. Ho declared
that tha policy of the board of public
utilities In the future would be, as it
has in the past, to pay no attention to
criticism from this source, as it was
prejudiced and unfair, but that any fair
criticism would be gladly welcomed by
himself and his colleagues on the
board. ;:■• . ......
„ V LUSK SI'EAKS
But what Llssner said was mild and
innocuous in connection with what
President Lusk said. When the rate
question had been settled Judge Lusk
referred to a newspaper editorial In
which he was spoken of as a "Popu
list Democrat and a hater of Abraham
Lincoln." In denouncing this editorial
he spoke with so much feeling that
several times his voice broke, and he
appeared on the verge of breaking
down. He said:
"A newspaper referred to me this
morning as the successor of Judge
Works, as being a southern Democrat,
a popullstlc Democrat, a hater of Abra
ham Lincoln. That's the way it puts
it. I want to say, in the first place,
that I was small at the time the Civil
War began. My people were Union,
all Union, and Union throughout the
war. Our people were so loyal, my
people, my grandfather, with whom I
lived —my father had died In the mean
time—that they chased him all over
the country; they shot at him. He had
to hide out at nights to keep away
from them. They burned his home. A
crowd of them came and took shovels
•Ad went to the fireplace and dumped
live flro coals into every bed in the
home, and burned it. Every particle
of property that I had In the world was
burned because my family was loyal.
It required courage to be loyal where I
lived. It was worth a man's life to be
loyal where I lived, and my family
"My father had three brothers In the
Federal army, as brave soldiers as ever
shouldered a musket. They would have
been conscripted Into the Confederate
army, but they fled through the lines
and Joined the Federal army. That la
my record of loyalty. As to being a
I'opulistlc Democrat, I never was. I
fought the Populist party, campaigned
against it all through Its days of popu
larity. I was a Cleveland Democrat,
was what was known as a sound
money Democrat, a gold standard Dem
ocrat. I lost my prestige somewhat In
the state where I lived by reason of the
fact that I was."

The Gat/in Treatment Cures Liquor
Habit and Nervousness That Calls
for Drink,in THREE DAYS—
No Hypodermic Injections
WAS IT RIP VAN WINKLE who said that the first
one drink "don't count noddings?" But, in your
case, it was that ONE FIRST DRINK and the
SUBTLE, insidious poison of alcohol it contained
that caused you to become a—well, that caused you
to contract the LIQUOR HABIT.
With alcohol, the EFFECT of one drink is to drive you to TWO
DRINKS; and of two drinks to drive you to FOUR, and so on
DOWN THE LINE.
■ The Gatlin is the only treatment in the world that will free your
system of stored-up alcoholic poison—in just THREE DAYS from
the day you commence the Gatlin treatment, without hypodermic in
jections, poisonous drugs or substitutive stimulants, craving, desire
and NERVE necessity for liquor are GONE and your system is freed
from any trace of alcoholic poison. At the end of the THIRD DAY,
as regards liquor, you are in the same condition as the day you com
menced drinking it—the very thought of it will disgust you and you
will see other drinking men in the light that SOBER MEN NOW
If you will come to the Gatlin Institute TODAY and remain but
THREE SHORT DAYS, it will mean much to your future life and
much to your mental and physical health.
Each patient is treated at the Gatlin Institute under contract that
a CURE—an entirely satisfactory cure—MUST be effected in
THREE DAYS or, on leaving the institute, the fee paid shall be re
funded and treatment shall cost nothing.
Those who cannot come to the institute can send for the Gatlin
home treatment. It is just as efficient as institute treatment if di
rections are followed.
