Beautiful Setting for Display of
Machines for Throngs
at Fiesta Park
That the staging of the Automobile
show which opens tonight at Fiesta
park under the auspti es of the Licensed
Motor Car Dealers' association will be
the most alluring spei tacle of ts kind
witnessed anywhere since auto shows
came, Into vogue, will undoubtedly be
the perdlet <■;■ the thousands of motor
ists who in the course of the wei I will
find their way Inside the great canvas
tent. It is as near an open air show
iis could possibly l>r made, since it is
necessary to have some overhead cov
ering to keep out dust or possible rain.
The scene Inside the tent will resemble
that of a tropical garden set down
among the gl tnt redwoods of the north.
The arrangements of every decorative
feature could not b ■ more complete.
Thfi' are scores of giant sequoias, a
cascade and a wide mountain stream,
the banks set with ferns and other I
foliage; a deep pool at the extremi end
O f the tent, and the entire wall space
a scenic effect on canvas ol mountains
and plains. The floor of the (treat am
phitheater is carpeted with green
Jburlnp. „,
Tho claimed riit» of motor cars will
Blake up the exhibits, and thai they ;
ore s handsome lot is without ques- i
tion. More than fifty-five makes of |
cars In various models will h. exhib- j
Iteil- as also a specially built annex
Wiu'house. a show of commercial rara
—the first exclusive exhibit of its kind
ever held on the coast.
The entertainment features for the
public have been well selected. As the j
opening is on Christmas eve. thi mv-
Blcal numbers will he Yuletlde selec
tions, »nd a great Christmas tree ltl;
n Sain.i 'lavs will add to the holiday
The show will remain open daily, <-\
cept Sunday, until December 31, and J
the thousands of dollars spent In its (
preparation will insure a spectacle i
worth going many miles to see. j

Sixty-Four Dollars Now Remains
from General Expense
Fund of $200,000
Tho city yesterday found itself in
the same position with people who
have completed their Christmas chop
ping and contemplate their pocket
books. Out of $200,000 sot aside In the
general exxpense fund last July there
is only $64.;s loft, according to a report
.1. H. Fountain, deputy city auditor,
made to tho finance committee yes
But conditions are not quite as bad
;is they appear on the auditor's books.
More than 130,000 has been loonod from
the general expense fund to the street
lighting fund, street opening and wid
ening fund, and other funds of that
kind and all that money will j\o back
Into the general expense account.
Nor are conditions as bad as they
were under the former council That
bfldy began its fiscal year with a gen
eral expense fund of 1260,000, but at
this time last year had to take $100.
--000 from the reserve fund and transfer
it to the general expense fund. The
present council has not had to touch
the reserve fund and dors not Intend
to do so unless it is found absolutely
nei essary.
There is JBSOJIOO in tho reserve fund,
but this money i; to be carefully saved
to cover what are called the "dry
months," the eriod between June and
November when there is no money
1 uniiiin' in from tax"s.
When those facts are contemplated it
shows the city still la In a pood finan
[ rial condition, although there is only
a little chewing gum money in it.i
rlghi hand trousers pocket.
Eighth street, between Central nvr
nue and the T-os Angeles river, will not
' i"' widened until such a time as a pe
tition bearing the signatures of :>i
i per cent ot" thr property frontage is
; presented to the council. This was defi
nitely established yesterday by the
streets and boulevards committee
which Will recommend to the council
Tuesday that the ordinance providing
tor the widening bo filed.
If the council adopts this reocm
-1 mendaticn it probably will be constd
. n -i as .i precedent and no more open
i Ing and widening proceedings will be
institute i by the council except when
a majority petition in favor of tho im
provement is filed.
Ed Randolph yesterday pleaded not
guilty to issuing a check for $70 when
ho had no funds in the bank, and Judge

Revision Commission Requires
More Time for Discussion
of Proposed Changes
Intricate compilation and collabora
tion of tho charter amendments was
found so difficult by the charter revis
ion committee that the amendments
wera not ready for the council when
that body met last night to approve
The commission will work all through
the Christmas holidays and have them
ready for the council to act by Tues
day. This will make a delay of only
one day under any circumstances, as
they will be published on Wednesday
morning. Had they been approved last
night they could not have been pub
lished until Tuesday morning.
C. O. Hawley, fire commissioner! in
duced the ( ouncll to consider an
amendment that will provide v police {
and tire pension fund by charter Instead
nt depending on the state law, as Is
now the case. The plan is to raise
the pension fund by direct taxation,
which will not amount to more than a |
matter of mills, instead of by direct
assessment of the policemen and Bre
men. The taxpayer pays the cost in
either event, for the nremen and po
licemen are (jlven enough in addition
to their salaries to pay the $2 monthly
assessment made for the pension fund.
A charter arrangement for this fund
will also prevent the condition that con
fronts these funds every year of a
deficit The tire department hns al
ready asked the council for $;sr>o to cover i
a deficit of that amount in the lire j
pension fund, and the police pension
fund is nearly exhausted.
Alternative propositions on the height
of buildings also will lie submitted to
n vote of I hi' people. One amendment
will provide that buildings may go
