Has satan invaded Carmel-by-the-Sea
and tempted half the literary colony
there to depart to a newer land, and
•will Geo. Sterling and Herbert Ilerron
and the rest of hlB clique accept tho
bait of the tempter and go to Pacific
Grove to occupy a new "Forest theater,"
the gift of the Pacific improvement
company to high art?
Is the Pacific Improvement company
the party of the first part—satan?
Will glad, free Bohemia, Carmel, the '
colony of pagan intellect, oe transplant
ed to strict, austere, local option, Sun
day-go-to-meetin' Pacific Grove, just
because the lit'r'ry colony of Carmel
split up last summer over the play
which was presented in the Forest the
ater?
High Art for an "Ad"
When the play committee selected j
Mrs. Perry Newberry's drama, "The
VToad." instead of Herbert Herron's play,
"Montezuma," there was d.n awful row
on at the home of lifr'ry idealism. Some
of the crack magazine writers of the
country, th« regular 10 cents a word
sharps, split their infinitive in rage.
Geo. Sterling sided with the insurgents.
The wise old Pacific Improvement
company saw its chance. The Carmel
lifr'ry colony was already a good ad
vertising feature for the peninsula, and
the improvement company figured that
if the highbrows could be brought over
tie brow of the hill, nearer railroad
connections, and the play given on Pa
cific Improvement company land it
would be a good thing for real estate —i
and art, of course—and that sort of
thing.
Way of the Tempter
So the tempter approached Geo. '
Sterling and Herbert Herron and com
miserated with them on the wicked way j
good talent—like Sterling's and Her- J
ron's—was treated by the "bergewoir" }
of Carmel.
Wouldn't it be nicer if they could !
o&ly have a forest theater nearer town I
say within easy walking distance of j
some good hotel —the Pacific Improve- ]
merit company has several scattered ,
around loose on the Monterey penln- ;
su!a?
Now, the improvement company lias
a fine site —a regular natural amphi
theater, just the place for "forest
plays." located on the way to Cypress I
point, you know, just within q. good,
easy walking distance of Pacific Grove.
The Pacific Improvement company ex
plained to Sterling in technical lan
guage, it is said, that it would do what
was,right by art —fix up a fine little out
of doors theater, not too far away, you

TWO WELL KNOWN
AVIATORS PLUNGE
TO THEIR DEATH!
Frey Drops 800 Feet at Mili
tary Practice; Laurent
Dashed in Squall; Pas
senger Escapes
RHEIMS, France. Nov. 21.—Two
aviators were killed today, one, An
drew Frey, at Rheims and the other
Sublieutenant Laurent, at Etampes.
Frey was known well on both sides
of the water. He finished third in
the international aviation race in Chi
cago In September.
He was undergoing military train
ing today and had just finished a reg
ular practice flight. He stopped his
engine at a height of 800 feet and
planed down beautifully untH within
150 feet of the ground. Suddenly the
right wing of the monoplane shot up
and the machine dropped to earth.
Frey was badly crushed. The cause
of the accident is a mystery, as the
aeroplane had been thoroughly tested
and apparently was in perfect condi
tion.
Lieutenant Laurent and Sapper
Chenu were making a flight near
Etampes at a speed of 60 miles an
hour when a squall caught the aero
plane as the pilot attempted to make
a sharp turn and dashed to the ground
with terrific force. Laurent was killed,
but Chenu escaped with slight in
juries.

two and a half hours. There will also '
be branches to Suisun and Vacaville.

WILSON MAY SET
CALIFORNIA ON
RECOUNT ORDER
* _____
' Appellate Court Sustains the
Bourbons' Contentions;
Orders New Canvass
in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21.—Unless
some means can be devised to forestall
that result. W'oodrow Wilson will carry
California through failure of the super
visors to certify the returns for Los
Angeles county, which gave Roosevelt
more than 20,000 plurality.
Supervisor R. W. Pridham said to
night that there was not enough time
in which to make a recanvass of the
returns of the 727 precincts in the
county in accordance with the mandate
of the appellate court issued late today;
that there could be no certification of
the count just made without disobeying
the court's order, and tit at there was
insufficient time in which to appeal to
the state supreme court.
Even should the new canvass be
made, Wilson would have a plurality
in the state, because the order of the
appellate court operates to throw out
the vote of two precincts in which the
Roosevelt electors had a plurality of
more than 200.
The district court of appeal handed
down a decision in the election contro
versy late today which democratic lead
ers declare will place California in the
Wilson column.
The decision was against the method
of the board of .supervisors in canvass
ing the returns of Los Angeles county.
The court held that the tallies should
be counted and not the certifications
returned by the precinct officers. At
least one precinct, Pasadena No. 4, will
be virtually thrown out by the de
cision, with a loss of 10S plurality for'
all the Roosevelt candidates for elec
tors except Wallace.
Court Orders New Canvass
A peremptory writ was issued direct
ing the board of suporvisors to canvass
the election returns in accordance with
the conclusions set forth in tho opinion.
The court sustained the democrats in
all except ore point involved. That
was an important point, however, in
asmuch as a decision in favor of tho
democratic contention would have as
sured the election of t le entire 13 Wil
son electors in the state. This point
involved the returns of TA. precincts
which the democrats petitioned to be
rejected entirely because tiie sealed en- I

PAUL LAMBETH
Special CaMe to Tbe Call
LONDON. Nov. 21.— Always equal
to the occasion of presenting the
world with a surprise. Turkey sud
denly has determined to make a fur
ther fight for life. Tonight all the
indications point to a continuance of
the war in the Balkans.
Is Turkey hoping for the expected
diversion from Bosnia?
Is it a fact that no less than 200,000
seasoned veterans are approaching
the Bosporus from the posts in Asia
Minor, equipped with the most up to
date weapons in the possession of thr
Ottoman empire—the garrisons sent
by Turkey to guard her Asiatic pos
sessions against the Italians and de
layed by lack of transports, bad roads
and other causes in getting sooner to
the front?
Must Be Honorable Peace
These questions were asked when
the news came from Constantinople
today that the imperial Ottoman coun
cil, after a long session, decided finally
to instruct Nazim Pasha as to the kind
of peace proposals which Turkey will
he willing to concede.
"More than ever are we anxious for
peace," said Klam, the pasha; "but it
must be an honorable peace. From the
beginning the sublime porte has de
plored most heartily this awful waste
of life and suffering among brave men
of many nations. All that possibly
could be done to avert war was done by
his imperial" majesty, the sultan. Even
when our brave generals urged us that
they should be permitted to turn tem
porary reverses into great victories, In
the interest of humanity we made an
offer of peace. Now, we can not accept
the harsh conditions suggested by the
Bulgarian reply. So we have notified
