COMEDIAN "JOE" HART
AND HIS "CRAZY LIGHT"
JOSEPH HART, at present appear
ing at the Orpheum, has blossomed
out as an Inventor. He has con
ceived, censtructed, perfected and
patented a novel- "finish" for the act In
which he Is appearing thlg week. He call3
it a "crazy light"; the stage electrician
calls it a nuisance; the public applauds it
and the management calls It a "hit." It
lasts just thirty seconds and has cost the
Inventor already over 21500.

adding, to his repertoire.

Take in County Line.
The Supervisors' Joint Committee on
Police and Streets met yesterday for the
purpose cf hearing arguments for and
against the board's contemplated action
to extend the pound limits to the county
line. A number of residents living out-
Eide of the present limits addressed the
committee and urged extension to the
Mrs. John Sautter told of the 200 chil
dren of the Monroe Primary School being
continually frightened by cows reaming
at large. She asked that the limits be
extended at least tp Onandaga avenue, if
not farther. The teachers were obliged
to take the children across the street in
croup* to protect them from the cattle.
At this point Attorney McEnerney, rep
resenting the dairy and cattle interests,
euggested that all objections might be
rettled if an ordinance were passed for-
Mddlng the straying of cattle on streets
that have been macadamized or graded
«-ven if they are outside the pound limits.
He advised a gradual extension of the
C. Stader said that the only Tray to
abate the nuisance caused by cattle would
be to extend the poundkeeper's territorial
jurisdiction so it would embrace the whole
city. ¦ Dr. E. N. Tcrello said that people
xrho live In the outlying districts could
not s-fford the expense of -improving the
Ftreets in front" of their property to come
within the provisions of the ordinance as
FUgprsted by McEnerney. Torello as
serted that the failure of the Supervisors
to grant proper protection to the outlying
district? was the cause of their fmali
population. The pound ordinance now in
existence, he held, was simply granting
special privileges to certain Industries.
If thl» request to extend the limits to tne
county line was not frranted the people
in the outlying districts would endeavor
to get Justice from some other source, he
"An much damage will result," said
Torello, "if y° u f ail to extend the pound
limits as resulted from the bubonic
plague, which in my opinon never existed
in this city."
George U- Roundley. representing the
University Mound District, held that if
the roaming cf cattle in the city was ob
jectionable It was equally objectionable
in the outskirts. Miss M. Lester of Mount

a grand rally of Republicans. •
The Knickerbocker quartet will sing, the
bands will play and the eloquent orators
of the grand old party will express senti

Enrollment In the district Republican
clubs will begin next Saturday evening
and continue for one 'week. To-morrow
official notice will be given of the place
of enrollment In each Assembly district.
FIFTH DISTRICT COMMITTEE.
The Fifth Congressional District Repub
lican Committee, which was appointed by
J. Alva Watt in June, 1S99, Is making a
strenuous effort for a prolonged lease of
life. There has been filed in the Regis
trar's office a copy of a resolution adopted
by the late convention of the district. The
Secretary- of State Is in • possession • of- a
copy of the resolution and a copy of the
precious document ¦ has also been trans
mitted to' the Republican State Central
Committee. When full returns are in from
other organizations evidence of additional
nllng may be produced. .
The preamble sets forth that the Fifth
Congressional District Republican nomin
ating convention at 1S98 adopted a resolu
tion authorizing and. empowering James
Alva Watt ¦ to appoint - a Congressional
District '- committee. Xo proof has been
presented to the Secretary of State, the
Registrar of voters or any. other citizen
that the convention of. 1S98 delegated the
authority .mentioned in the- resolution.
There Is ample proof to establish the fact
that exercise of the authority was not at-

The document recently filed in the Reg

The resolution which was adopted at
the Sacramento convention continues the
foregoing committee in office.
Before the ougoing State Central Com
mittee met in this city to fix the time,
place and appointment of the late Repub
lican State Convention The Call directed
attention to the fact that the Fifth Dis
trict Congressional Convention of 1S3S ad
journed without appointing a committee.
When the subject came up in the State
Central Committee meeting J. Alva Watt
claimed that he appointed the committee
under authority derived from the district
convention of 189S. He assured the con
vention, however, that the committee had
no intention of appointing delegates to the
State convention, but on the contrary In
tended to call for primary elections. As
there was nothing at stake but the selec
tion of delegates to a State convention
called for the puropse of sending repre
sentatives to Philadelphia the assurance
given by Watt was accepted. In direct
violation of Watt's promise the commit
teemen. whose names are embraced in the
resolution filed In the Registrar's office,
met and APPOINTED delegates to the
No apology for or explanation of this
breach of faith was given to the old State
Central Committee. The railroad agents
simply directed that primaries should not
be called and the committee obeyed. The
thought of placing any value on a prom
ise openly and solemnly given to the Re
publican State Central Committee never
entered Into the calculations of the com
mltteemen of the Fifth. ".;.-.•
The new State Central Committee,
which meets to-morrow, should consider
that there Is now a Representative in
Congress at stake. The fact should be
considered that the preceding State Cen
tral Committee was deceived by a false
statement emanating from the spokesman
cf this so-called Fifth District Congres
sional Committee. The further fact should
be considered that the Republican voters
of the Fifth District will not vote for a
candidate for Congress put forward by the
agents of the Southern Pacific.
The extraordinary activity displayed by
machine politicians in filing documents to
give life and character to a Congressional
committee of doubtful creation excites
suspicion. The new State Central Ccm
mittec should take no chances In dealing
with; Fifth District affairs. Positive proof
may yet be produced that Watt was never
authorized by the district convention of"
1S9S to appoint a Congressional commit
tee. It is important that the petitions
should be presented to the proper authori
ties by a legally constituted governing
body of the party in the district.

succeed hmself, but it has never before
been officially announced. The Oakland

from Senator* Perkins under date of June
19, in which the Senator replies to "a
question whether he would be a candidate
or not. saying: • .
"The election of my successor, as you
are aware, does not take place until two
years from next January, and many
changes will doubtless take place In the
meantime. However, your note of Inquiry
Is entitled to a frank answer. I. there
fore, beg to say if I can be re-elected as I
have been twice before elected— that Is, by
the expressed or implied understanding of
the Republican nominees to the Legisla
ture that If elected they looked with favor
upon my election as being satisfactory to
their Immediate constituents, In other
words If I can go before the people at the
proper time and receive their support — I
expect to be a candidate to succeed my-

In the resolution providing for the dis

to reorganize the teaching of physical cul

of three teachers is inadequate to give
Instruction often enough and that "the
present system of . gymnastic exercises
can be taught Just as effectively by class
teachers supervised by the principals."

cussion bo the club could have a com
mittee present to represent it.
Before the secretary had read the com
munication through Denman objected to
further reading on the ground that the
board had decided not to carry out the
propositions mentioned. He Bald that it
was an insult to the members of the
board to accuse them of contemplating
doing something they had never intended
to do and the communication was shelved.
The fact remains, however, that the
propositions were seriously discussed at
the secret meetings of the board but were
abandoned owing to the opposition cre

the schemes when publicity was given
