IN SOCIAL LIFE
The nuptials of Miss Adele Mtndelsohn, i
of Capistrano and Mr. Ous Wangenheim,
of Sydney. Australia, took place at high i
noon, March 31, in the parlors of the
residence of the bride's parents at Oapis- j
trano, in the presence of many relatives
nnd friends from Los Angeles and Santa I
Ana. The neighbors lent willing bands j
in gracefully decorating the rooms with
smilax, lilies, palms, roses aud pink*.
Tbe ceiling was woven with ropes of
•mllax, while between the windows and
around the rooms were palms und culla ,
lilies in bouquet holders of smilax. Under
the Drlde'g picture was a true lover's knot ;
most beautifully wrought of delicate flow- j
ers and smilax. The adjoining room was
tastefully decorated in yellow and white.
Upon the piano were masses of white
and pink carnations, roses and orange
blossoms. The canopy which was dressed I
by the bridesmaids, was covered with
smilax in blossoms and pink daisies.
Smilax and roses trimmed the curtainson
which were traced delicate green hearts
and lover's knots.
The bridal procession entered with mu
sic. First came Rabbi A. W. Edelman of
Los Angeles, followed by Miss L. Forster,
as maidof honor, the bridesmaids anil
their escorts, Miss Etta Jacoby and Mr.

Ed Mendelson, followed by Mrs. A. Klein
and the groom, the mother of the bride
and Mr. A. Klein. The bride, beautifully
dressed in whito brocade trimmed with
pearls and orange blossoms, was support
ed by her father. The ceremony was ren
dared most interesting by the eloquence
of the good Rabbi, who "had known the
bride from childhood. The Joyous wed
ding march rang out, and after receiving
congratulations, the happy couple and all
present marched down the flowery stair
way under arches of geraniums, and
graceful branches of the green pepper tree
to the dining room, which was elaborate
ly decked with palms, oranges and roses.
A sumptuous lunch was served, and in i
the midst, just as the toasts were being |
given, numerous congratulatory telegrams
from absent friends were read. The health
and happiness of the newly married
couple were drank. In the afternoon
dancing was indulged in, until the train
carried the numerous friends from Ixis
Angeles back to their homes. Later the

and many blessings, they departed for a

ART EXHIBITION
Mr. Frederic C. Torrey opened his an
nual display of pictures in the parlors of
the Westminster Hotel yesterday morn
ing. The collection consists of water
colors, etchings, engravings and a fine
line of art photographs. The latter are the
Hollyer carbon reproductions of paint
ings by Watts, Burne, Jones and other
modern masters, as well as mythological
and allegorical subjects; they equal, anil
in some respects, surpass the famous
Braun reproductions, and are wonderful
examples of the perfection that has been
attained by modern photographic art.
The etchings are from plates by James
McNeil Whistler, Seymour Haden, Josef
Israels, Charles Jacques, Zorn, Lalanne,
Rembrandt, Corot, Albert Durer, Joseph
Pennell, Otto Bacher, Van Granesande,
Frank Short, Wvllie, Schilling, Charles .1.
Watson and other Well-known English,
French and American masters of the
etchers' art, and will be spoken of more
fully and in detail at another time.
Of the water colors, Mr. Torrey has with
him this year some by men who arc quite
new here," and others, and line examples
of such artists as Marjoribanks Hay, the
English water colorist, some of whose
beautiful landscapes were bought by Los
Angeles art connoisesurs last year. The
strongest one in this exhibition, called a
Pier at Pittenween, is a masterly piece of
work technically, and shows a stone pier
jutting out of the central foreground into
lashing waters, with low gray clouds
ecuddi.ig across the threatening sky. The
values and strong action are wonderfully
preserved, and the picture as a whole is
a masterpiece.
Another, the Auld Brig O'Ayr, is in
quite a different key, but is kept as faith
fully harmonious, and represents a red
dish brown arched bridge in the middle
foreground with the smoke of a city in
the background rising lazily against an
other gray sky. In this picture the feel
ing is one of quiet and the genersal tone
is much warmer. There are several other
; landscapes by this same artist that are
j more conventional in subject and treat
ment, but none the less admirable, and
all are the work of a very superior master.
J. M. Barnsley, a Canadian artist, is
represented by a charming landscape, and
a very interesting little scene bearing the
date of 1830 is from the brush of T. C.
Dibdin, one of the early members of the
English water color society. Two power
ful landscapes from an American who is
just coming into prominence, H. J.
Breuer, are a desert scene in the early
morning light, and a vista between hills
on one side and foliage on the other with
a pond of water In the foreground. In
both of these pictures the color is strong
ly and finely handled, and in the latter
particularly "the treatment is reminiscent
of Diaz, Jules Dupre and others of the
great Barbizon school. They both com
mand respect and attention for their
technical excellence, and the artistic feel
ing which pervades them. A delicious
little marine with the waters lazily lap
ping the wet beach, which reflects tbe
coloring of Bky and clouds is by E. M.
Bioknefl, an American artist of some
note, and another marine by the English
artist Albert is also delightfjl},,,)!! compo
sition and treatment showing a wide view
of restless sea, dotted with whitecaps and
various craft.
These are not all the really fine water
colors in this display; there are many
large and small of varying degrees of in
terest and excellence, aud ns Mr. Torrey
will be here the rest of this week and all
of next there will be time for all lovers of
good art to enjoy them not only once but
several times.
AHUSEMENTS
Los Angeles Theater—The house was
packed to the doors last night for the
opening of the Calhoun Opera Company
in Amorita. The Mystic Shriners, with
their families, filled a large portion of
the body of the house, and boxes, loges
and the rest of the auditorium were
crowded with a very fashionable audi
ence.
The opera itself is a tuneful and melo
dious composition, and the interpolations
were the most popular airs from other
popular operas. The company is vastly im
proved since they last sang here; the
chonises make up in good training and
prompt action what they may lack in
volume as to voice: the orchestra is ex
ceptionally good and carries the weight
of the whole with an ease and spon
taneity that speaks well for the conductor.
The libretto is not exactly Gilbertian,
but. comic opera in which the dialogue
is less clear and every act is so full of
pretty solos, duets and ensemble music,
that one can overlook lapses In the
diction.
As Angelo Melonotti, Miss Adele
Furrington is entirely captivating;
Jcanie Winston and all the other women
who essay men's roles fade into insignifi
cance in comparison.
Her features are as clear cut as a cameo;
her figure is slender, trim, lithe, ami
flawless from her dainty pointed toes, to
the crown of her head with its reddish
brown hair. She carries herself with easy
poise and a very natural grace, anil
although she plays the part of man and a
lover, and an excellently good one, too,
she is refined, yet chic and irresistible.
Her contralto voice has wide range and a
very agreeable quality; and her waltz song
in the second act, won her a warm re
LOS ANGELES HEHALD: THITRSDAY MOITNTXG, MAKCH 7, IS<»5
cull. In the wedding costume of white,
she was so stunning her audience found
it hard to let her go
Miss Alice Beanvet made a very agreeable
Impression last night In the title role,
and in her duets with Angelo, her lover,
nnd Bomhaedo, her would-be-lover, she
was heard al her best.
Miss UertTUdt Lodge, who played Pre
petu, tbe mother of Amorita, Imd little
singing to do, but showed considerable
talent for the comedy part, which she
played cleverly.
Frederick fluntly as Fra Bombarda, a
monk and afterward a dictator of Flor
ence, has a most agreeable vioce which he
uses with discrimination nnd power, and
his acting was as good as his singing.
Douglas Fl nt as Castruo.eio, a furrier,
and Frank Moulin as Patruchia, the
court attendant, divided the comedy hon
ors. And last but by no means least,
should be mentioned the Ambassador
from Morroco, who was personated by T.
E. Rowan, jr., with great grandeur and
all the magnificence that hirelings, lack
eys, small Ethiopian boys and large pale
faced ladles in billows of black Turkish
costumes give.
Everybody was glad to extend a wel
come to Mr. Rowan, the genial and affable
Tom, and in the Black Hussar his
friends will have an opportunity to hear
his rich voice and see more of him than
his part in Amorita will allow. The stage
settings were all attractive and in the last
act the lighted city seen in the distance
was very effective and pretty. Of the
Hungarian violinist, Mr. Paul Egony,
only praise can be said. His attack is
clear anil sure, as is bis execution, bis tone
singularly me"ow and rich, and his play
ing is characterized by what Hungarians
always show, heart and sentiment.
Amorita is on for tonight and Saturday
night. The Black Hussar for Friday even
ing and Saturday matinee.

JIONA SHANNON
For the past few days I have been pre
vented from reading your paper, so that
the article of reasons (so-called) for wo
men wearing large hats and trousers ami
nesiring the ballot escaped my eyes until
today. I can safely say without exag
geration I was dumbfounded. If lam not
too late, will you kindly permit me to re
ply to the writer of the article? Consider
ing my request granted 1 shall now ad
dress my remarks to the aforesaid editor.
Come, sir; let us have a little argument,
that is, let nic have my say while you for
ever hold your peace.
First, let us , consider the reasons you
give for women wishing to vote. They
are partially right. We do wish to vote,
because you men do not want us to have
that privilege, but that is our sole and
only reason. Isn't that reason enough?
Show ma the right-minded woman who,
when she finds that all men are opposed
to her doing some certain thing, is not
immediately consumed with a wild desire
to do that'very thing. Such a woman
does not exist nnd never has. O man,
man! Do you think we are "its" with
no independence at all? of course wo
want to vote, because you men oppose it.
Never in our most delirious moments
have we had any other reason. Do you
think you can stop us by opposing us?
Have you not learned that the only way
to prevent woman from doing some thing
you do not wish her to do is to convince
her that you are positively consumed with
desire to have her do that very thing?
Freely and ungrudgingly give us the right
to vote, then see how quickly we will fly
back to our babies, pianos and cook
books.
Have you men purchased all the corner
lots on notoriety? Haven't we just as good
a right to make ourselves notorious as you
men? You have no right to make re
marks, no matter what means we adopt.
So far so good. But now comes tho par
ticular question: Why do the present wo
men wear such gigantic hats?
My dear sir, wnen you. assign the rea
son that you do, you are completely at
sea in an open boat without rudder, oars,
sails, hard tack or grog. Do women wear
large hats in order to attract attention?
Most emphatically no! I shall attempt
to make you understand, as nearly as
your masculine brain will allow you to, the
true reason. There is a psychological
reason. Now go back on psychology at
your peril. Psychology can explain any
thing. Here is the psychological fact.
Women wear such hats because they in
crease their personality, present more sur
face to space. We have feeling in every
dancing plume, ribbon, crown and brim,
just as truly as we have in our hunds,
feet, etc. There is just so much added
feeling of moving in space. Voluminous
attire gives a delightful feeling of airy
lightness. I assure you that when a
woman has on an immense hat also a
pair of balloon-like sleeves (which you
forgot to mention) she feels as if she
could soar through space. Even tho
stoutest woman has this feeling when at
tired in fashionable hat and sleeves. Your
idea that we wear those angelic hats to
attract attention is preposterous. We
often wear them for hours at a time in the
privacy of our own apartments.
Perhaps 1 can make it still plainer to
you. Why do you men wear plug hats,
f 'Willie-boy" coats, and carry canes?
Now don't tell me you don't have a cer
tain feeling clear up to the top of those
plug hats, down to the bottoms of the
adored "Willie-boys' and cleur to the tip
ends of Jthe canes, for I know you have.
Do we women sneer at you and say yon
wear them in order to attract attention?
No, we are too kind and sympathetic to
do that.
Then, too, the more room our clothes
take up the more space do we ourselves
feel that we occupy. It is an acknowl
edged fact that women like to take up ail
the room they can in this world. In
short, misguided man, woman wears the
hat she does because it pleases her to do
so.
Ponder on the things I have said and you
will finally conclude that there are more
curious reasons for a womans actions
than you ever dreamed of. It would posi
tively make your brain reel if you knew
some of the reasons women have for do
ing apparently reasonless things.

BELIEVED TO BE INNOCENT
The Examination of the Alleged Pico Heights
Female Firebugs is Continued
The examination of Mrs. Julia Knox
and Mrs. Amelia Piatt, two sisters, for
arson, was continued yesterday by Jus
tice Young of the township court until
the 13th, at the request of the attorneys
for the people nnd the defense. The ac
cused have a number of sympathizers at
Pico Heights who refuse to believe that
they have been guilty of the crime
charged, or that Mrs. Minnie Dunham
will be able to substantiate her accusa
tions. The defense claims that the pros
ecution has been instigated by the insur
ance company which paid the claim after
the Lightning street house was burned.
Considerable interest has been manifested
at Pico Heights in the arrests and there
is much speculation as to the probable
outcome.
Healey Cannot Testify
William Settle is to be tried in the Su
perior Court on the 11th instant on the
charge of having participated in the
murder of a baker at Wilmington last
year. Yesterday his attorney, Mr. Allen,
of the firm of Allen & Flint, applied to
Judgo Shaw to have Lucien T. Healey
brought down from the penitentiary at
San Quentin to testify on behalf of his
client at the trial. The Court denied the
motion. Healey is serving a life sentence
in the state prison for the murder of
Camile Ellikan. at Long Beach, in the
latter part of November.

the District Attorney in the Superior
Court, charging C. G. Hoyt with forgery.
It alleges that on January 25th Hoyt
drew up a sight draft for $150 in this
city made payable by the Citizens' Bank
of Ontario, Cal. The draft bore on the
back the following endorsement: C. G.
Hoyt, Hotel Westminster, per F. O.

it was then discovered that the draft was
a forgery.
