The proposition of municipal owner

and brought about by due, ample and

people is something that ls being dis
cussed on all sides.
Not one word has been heard from the
Times on the subject, and to those who

For several years the closest personal
friend and advisor that Col. Harrison
Gray Otis had was Col. J. H. Woodard,
alias "Jayhawer," who was at the same
time on the pay roll of the water com
pany at $250 per month.
The "Jayhawer" person for montns
used the Times with the full knowledge
and consent of Otis to accomplish the
ends and alms of the water company
and to deceive and throw dust in the
eyes of the people.
In this campaign which Is now on for
municipal ownership, the Times Is again
where it always has been—with tha
water company.
Now is the time when the subject of
municipal ownership should properly
come up for discussion, for .three city
conventions meet this, week to place in
nomination municipal tickets.
The people want to know how the can
didates stand before they are nominated.
They want no time-serving tools of the
water company named for municipal
offices. The Issue has been made, and
The Herald has exerted itself to bring

up in the council this year, Mr. Snyd-r
took.a firm stand for a substantial re

said that if any man in the city desired

that he had no business dealings or
transactions with the Los Angeles City
Water company which called for any
secret meetings, and he declined abso
lutely to have anything to do with any
meetings with water company officers.
Then came an ex-city attorney, Mr.
Charles McFarland, to Mr. Snyder's
store. He informed him that he was act
ing very foolishly and that the water
company would later take a hand in pol

Snyder was burled.
That threat the City Water company
is now endeavoring to make good. The
ex-city attorney who made it is a Re
publican and he came into office since
the new charter went into effect. These
are the same kind of men the water com
pany has been putting in office for some
years past. These are the kind of men
the corporation is now striving to have
nominated this year. If the people are
fully aroused to the importance of the

The action of the Democratic city gen

the campaign was a surprise to the wa
ter company. The general committee
voiced the sentiment of the people when
it passed a resolution in favor of munic
ipal ownership and the Immediate inau
guration of a policy looking to that end.
This cannot be done by any men In the
council or in the mayor's chair who are
ln anyway obligated, by personal rela
tions or otherwise, to the water com
pany. It can only be done by tried and
true representatives of the people.
The water company has absolute
control of the machinery of the Repub
lican city committee. It will endeavor
to retain Its grip bp capturing the pri
maries today through its agents.
Then tomorrow it will seek to control
the Democratic primaries. This is go
ing to be a hard job, but If every true
Democrat and friend of municipal own
ership will turn out, the water monopoly
will receive a black eye the like of
which It has never had before in local
politics. There will be repeaters and
etuffers everywhere to elect water com
pany delegates to ths city convention.
They must be downed at all hazards.
A number of Republican ward strik

A Highly Successful Meeting Held at
Feniel Hall
Rev. Charles N. Crlttenton, the evan
gelist known as the Brother of Erring
Girls, spoke last night at Penlel hall to
upwards of 1000 people. The house was
filled before 7:30, the time for opening
the meeting. We know of no evangel
ist who has ever been ln our city that
has so reached the hearts of the people
as Mr. Crittenton. Mr. Crittenton's ser
mons are always grand, but last night
he was at his best. He spoke on the
text, Mark iv.-27—"He lifted him up."
His message was plain and direct and
his Illustrations very applicable. He
spoke for forty-five minutes with that
rapidity and intensity that character
izes this business man, who thirteen
years ago consecrated his life and
wealth to God. At the close of the
meeting several arose for prayers.
Today at 10:30 a. m., 2 p. m. and 7:30
p. m. Mr. Crlttenton will preach at Pen
lel hall. On Wednesday night at the
Simpson tabernacle, at the urgent so
licitation of the business men of Los
Angeles,' Mr. Crlttenton will deliver his
wonderful and thrilling lecture on The
Florence Rescue Work.
It Will Come Up Before the City Council
He Wonts Something Like $9000 for
"Extras" on the City Jail
Today the city council will consider
the bill of John Rebman, the contractor,
who erected the city Jail building. Mr.
Rebman has put in a bill for extras for
a sum amounting to almost J9OOO.
These '"extras," It is alleged, were done
in putting the foundation below the
depth called for in the contract, ln order
to reach solid ground. •
This bill Is an) extraordinary one, and
on the surface it smacks loudly of a Job.
It ls a large sum of money—ls $9000—and
in giving this sum to Contractor Reb
man the city council had best go slow—
which it did ln deferring final action for
one week, ln order to give citizens a
chance to be heard.
The ground upon which the city Jail
stands is yellow shale, through which
the water will not seep. The necessity
for putting the foundation down any
further than the contract calls for Is not
apparent on the surface.
Old citizens, who have known that
ground for years, claim that the. best
kind of a foundation could have been
secured without any extra work having
been done.
Contractor Rebman has already been
favored by the council. He was relieved
Of the $25 per day which he was to forfeit
for every day over the time stated in
the contract ln which the jail was to be
Now he brings in a bill for $9000 for
"extras" on the foundation. The time
for that matter to have been thoroughly
investigated was when It was being
done. To come in at this late day and
claim the amount seems extraordinary.
It is time for good citizens to turn out
and see that Mr. Rebman does not obtain
anything more than he Is entitled to at
the hands of the council. It Is said that
Mr. Jos. Mesmer and other citizens are
ln possession of facts to show that the
extra foundation was unnecessary, and
as the matter was continued for scf/eral
days, In order to give any citizen who
desired a chance to protest, they should
be at hand at the meeting of the council
to register their kicks before It ls too
late. f
It is most Important that the flowers In
tended to be sent away should be gathered
either the first thing ln the morning or
toward the evening, and placed ln water
for several hours before packing. In this
way they will absorb sufficient moisture to
keep them fresh throughout their travels.
Cardboard boxes must on no account be
used, nor those of tin. Light wooden ones,
about five Inches ln depth aro to be recom
mended for all reasons, says the Boston
In the case of roses and such like flow
ers, half-opened buds must always be se
lected. It Is utterly useless sending full
blown blooms, as they will be good for
nothing when unpacked. Azaleas, gerani
ums, pelargoniums, etc.. must be gummed.
Ferns travel best If placed; at the bottom
of the box with paper between them and
the flowers. Very delicate ferns, such ns
tho maidienhnlr are grateful for first being
totally immersed ln water for an hour.
There ls no greater mistake than to use
damp cotton; It quickly produces mildew
and ruins everything with which It comes
ln contact.
A layer of wadding, earefullly cut to
measure must be laid smoothly In the box;
over this comes a sheet of waxed> paper
large enough to fit cosily Into the four cor
ners and to line the sides; after which lay
ln the flowers one by one, taking care that
the flower heads of eacch row come exact
ly on the stems of ths preceding one.
Proceed thus until the box Is just full
enough. Now place another layer of wad
ding right over all. topped by a piece of
paper of similar size; secure the lid and
wrap the box up neatly In stout paper.
If, despite all these precautions, the flow
ers should look at all drooping at their
journey's end, they will soon revive If tho
stalks are put In rather hot, but not boil
ing, water. This has a wonderfully re
viving effect on faded flowers.
Handsome mantles will be worn as the
season advances, made either ln bright
colored cloths —such as violet, green or
pink—or ln rich violet, brown or black
velvet, trimmed with chinchilla, sable
or mink, or with ostrich feather tips
and rich gimps made in silk, but ren
dered beautiful by cut jet or, when they
accompany chinchilla, with steel se
quins. The full sack backs are a salient
point, and so are the sleeves, some of
them being double and sling shaped to
the elbow. Most of them are cut up at
the wrist and fall over the hand. In
deed, in many ways the mantle of today
recalls the gorgeous habits worn by the
Flemish nobles and burghers that Hol
bein has perpetuated. The richest bro
caded velvets, with bold, large patterns,
are employed for them, and the collars
stand up high In the neck—so high, In
fact, that they almost hide the ears;
but they can be turned down, and prob
ably often will be.—3. James' Qasette.
The Mohammedans ln the Island of
Crete, though ln the minority, are not
so radically opposed to autonomy as
It might be supposed they would be.
They have accepted the understanding
between the Cretan assembly and the
Porte with comparatively moderate
protests, and ln the assembly Itself the
Mohammedan deputies voted with the
Christians on this question. These dep
uties represent the richest and most In
telligent Mussulmans, residents of the
Island. Perhaps they are far-seeing
enough to recognize ln a liberal local
government a much better promise of
future prosperity than ln continued po
litical dependence upon their despotic
mother land.

Annual Fair for the Orphans
Opened Last Night
Large Crowd, Fine Program of Music
and Eloquent Addresses
Turnvereln Hall Converted Into a Gay
Mart of All Sorts of Merchandise—
A Great Success
The annual fair given for the benefit
of the Catholic orphan asylum, under
the direction of the Sisters of Charity
opened last night with the most favor
able auspices at Turnvereln , hall on
South Main street. From early until
late there waa an Interested crowd pres
ent that thoroughly appreciated the ex
cellent program which was* rendered, as
well as the eye feast which had been
prepared by the ladies who are never
weary In their good work for the little
ones left to the tender care of the sis
ters. The hall was brilliant with lights,
gaily bedecked booths and pretty maid
ens that made their wares lrressistible by
their charming presence. Those presid
ing were made happy by the largo at
tendance, nnd those not participating
were fully compensated by the pleasant
evening which one and all enjoyed. The
hall was lined from end to end with
booths varying in color from dainty
pink and blue to deep shades of red and
yellow. In one booth or another every
one could find something to their taste.
There were fancy articles of every char
acter, articles for those of a practical
turn of mind. The children were not
forgotten in the arrangements.and there
were cooling drinks and dainty refresh
ments to be had. There was an oppor
tunity given those desirous of a peep
Into the future, and fortune wheels were
kept merrily spinning.
On the whole the scene was one of life
and beauty, the happy faces, artistic
decorations and soft strains of music
all contributing to make the affair an
unprecedented success from an artistic
and financial standpoint. Dull care was
cast aside, and If hard times had bee_
the burden of any one's thoughts it
was forgotten last night as purse strings
were loose, and those presiding over the
different departments reaped *. harvest
of shining coins.
The balcony was filled with spectators
■and the main floor was crowded to the
doors. 1
After the exercises the chairs were
cleared away and the guests given an
opportunity to inspect the booths and
while away the time in conversation.
The program was opened by a few
happy remarks from the chairman, Mr.
John Alton, after Arend's orchestra
playing La Fiesta March, Right Rev.
Bishop Montgomery was Introduced and
said in substance:
The annual appeal made ln behalf of
the orphan never fails to meet with
a ready response from the community,
irrespective of creed or calling, and even
in times of depression like the present.
This does honor to the spirit of charity
and humanity which is so characteristic
of our age and civilization.
Yet there is a good, sound business
principle involved in the method in
which our state provides for the orphan.
California is both wise and generous In
the provision she makes for these little
ones. She does not buy grounds and
erect and equip buildings. These she
wisely leaves to private parties—but
when these are provided she appropri
ates a per capita amount for the main
tenance and tuition of the child.
This system Is of the profoundest wis
dom. Whilst the erection of buildings
and equipment of them in the present
method fosters amongst us a spirit of
charity and humane feeling, so neces
sary to keep us from becoming cold and
selfish and material, it relieves the gen
eral taxpayer of a great burden, and
preserves the state from committing It
self to a dangerous system of paternal-
Ism. What the young want ls to be
taught character—to be taught self-re
liance—not Independence so much as
Thils method of leaving much to be
provided by private means, yet assist
ing ln the maintenance, does not en
courage extravagance and useless out
It makes those In charge study that
economy that ls compatible with the
needs of the case, and If fancy wishes to
Indulge In extravagant buildings hardly
ln keeping with the purpose, the state at
least has not to pay for them. This :s
a point that hitherto the taxpayer has
seen and acted upon, and it ls to be pre
sumed that as long as he keeps his
senses he will not favor the ddea of the
state's assuming these additional bur
In the present management there is
the Incentive to teach the orphan to
make his own living and not to look to
the state for perpetual care to look to
m Ms own ready hands and brave heart to
make his way in the world.
The Idea of our government Is not to
carry people at public expense, but to
furnish to all equal opportunities to help
themselves. The government owes no
body a living, save in the exceptional
cases of absolute necessity, and when
ever the assistance rendered eyer( in
those cases is such as to enable tho
needy soon to help himself it is the best
charity that can be bestowed,
Following the bishop's remarks there
was a selection from Robin Hood by a
quartet composed of Miss Jennie Win
ston, Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Rowan, Jr.,
and Mr. J. Llewellyn.
Hon. T. E. Gibbon spoke briefly on
the commendable work in which so
many were Interested and) in a charity
that was not more worthy of aid than
that of helping the little homeless chil
The remainder of the program was
as follows:
Song—Mrs. Carl S. Thrower.

Quartet, Oh, Tell It Her (Rosa)— Miss
Jennie Winston, Mrs. T. E. Rowan, Jr.,
Mr. T. E. Rowan, Jr., Mr. J. Llewellyn.
Selection —The Arend' Orchestra.
The first booth that attracts the at
tention as one enters the hall, and the
chef d'oeuvre of all, is the handsome
one in charge of Mrs. L. L. Bradbury,
assisted by Mrs. James Winston, the
Misses Bradbury and the Misses Win
ston. A net of smilax forms the cover
ing and sides and pendant from the top
and on the ontslde is an artistic confus
ion of white and green tlpted snowballs,
green crepe ls used In graceful folds,
and the whole ls enhanced tn charming
effect by green shaded lights. Ice cream
and punch were served here from small
tables decorated in white carnations.
The cathedral booth came next, which
blended Its colors most harmoniously
with Its handsome neighbor. Green and
white were also used here, but In dif
ferent shades. Mrs. W. F. Nordbolt
was ln charge, with the Very able as
slstance of Mmes. McCaffrey, Le Doux
and Miss M. A. Cowper. The dainty
bits of fancy work found a ready sale,
and In addition to theae waa an oil
painting to be raffled and a beautiful
dinner set which was donated by Mrs.
O'Hara. The poster booth waa a cosy
little conception of La Fiesta colors,
which was under the direction of Mrs.
B. J. Reeve, aided by Misses Vlrgle
Thorpe, the Misses King, Mary and
Edith Reeve and Miss McLaferty. There
are two large photographs here of
Bishop Mora and Bishop Montgomery
which were contributed by Schumacher.
These will be raffled in addition to
smaller ones that are for sale. Miss O.
Kane has also contributed a pretty oil
painting to the collection.
In among the gorgeous booths were
scales where Mrs. Kneally, with the as
sistance of her daughter were ready to
weigh all those who would run the risk
of not beln found wanting.
Away in one corner, surrounded by
mystery and occult art, was the fantas
tic gypsy abode. A caldron stood brew
ing at the entrance, and once inside
the seeker after the unknown future
was met by dusky maidens, the chief
ln charge being Mrs. Ida Hancock, who
by the crystal, cards and the lines in
the palm foretold coming events and
repeated the past. This booth was one
of the most picturesque in the hall. The
roof was formed of long reedß, palms
extended down from the top and on
one was the fortune teller's Insignia of
cards. Those who assisted in working
out the fate of those who ventured In
were the Misses Workman, Flood of
San Francisco, the Misses McCabe, Miss
Zodle Maxwell.
In close proximity to this is a very
pretty corner of palms, ferns and flowers,
which ls occupied by Mrs. Ida Hancock.
Mrs. J. Philip Erie, Mrs. L. C. Black, Mrs.
Ponet, Mrs, Massln and Miss Nellie Des
mond. The ladies take orders for the
Orphans' Appeal, a bright little sheet
published by unknown editors at the
fair. A large sum has already been re
alized by the ads that have been run
"oy the generous merchants of the city.
A practical Idea, nnd one that was made
use of, was the hat booth, where hats
and coats were safely taken care of by
the young ladies for a small sum. Mrs.
Oelcich presided here, assisted by Misses
Dawson, Grace Rhodes, Lena Ree.l,
Lupe Gelclch and Veronica Geleich. The
youmg ladies have at their disposal a
handsome silver pitcher, given by Mrs.
Oelcich, and a very well executed oil
painting of San Gabriel Mission by Miss
Lune Oelcich.
The soda water fountain ls placed In
the midst of refreshing greens, palms,
ferns and peppers doing graceful duty.
The young ladles with the Misses Nte
meyer at the head, did a rushing busi
ness. Those who assisted ln supplying
the refreshing drinks were Misses Dol
galarando, Anna Collins, Kate Connell
and Martha Hardwlg. Miss Tobin has
contributed to this booth a beautiful
doll attired In white satin, that is des
tined to make some little girl happy.
There are numerous other booths
which lack of space prevents mention
ing, but will be given In tomorrow's
Issue. A most appetizing lunch will be
served dally from 11 to 2 o'clock, ami
different attractions will be arranged for
each evening.
Wednesday evening a rare treat is in
store for artists, as the celebrated paint
ing by Lagve. the Legend of St. Godleph.
will be exhibited. The painting took first
prize at the Rrusselis and Antwerp ex
hibitions. Bishop Mora will make his
last public appearance In this city this
evening and the Mexican band will be In
There was an especially happy gather
ing at the home of Mrs. Ellen M. Utley
yesterday afternoon in honor of the Slst
birthday of her mother, Mrs. J. C.
Hance. Mrs. Hance is also the mother
of Mrs. Keese and Mrs. Jackson of this
city. The rooms were artistically dec
orated with peppers and varied colored
flowers. The drawing room was In red
and ln the dining room, where the dain
ty edibles were partaken of, yellow and
green were prettily combined. The Ut
ley household are staunch Democrats,
the politics of the family being manifest
ed in the tempting slices of silver and
gold cake that were arranged ln gener
ous quantities of the former on the ta
ble. The venerable guest of honor ls a
valued member of the Bryan club.
Mrs. Hance ls a charming old lady,
with hair not entirely white, and brown
eyes whose brightness would do credit
to a woman many years her Junior. An
Informal reception was held from 2 to 4,
the guests being cordially received by
Mrs. Hance, assisted by her daughters.
Those present who extended their con
gratulations and left many heartfelt
wishes for a happy return of the day

birthday. The hall was beautifully dec
orated with Japanese lanterns. In one

It has been persistently rumored for
some time past that Miss M. F. Cusack,
bette known as "the Nun of Kenmare,"

My hand* wore completely covered with Ec
zema, and between my Angora the thin was
perfectly raw. I bad to alt with both hands held
np, and away from tbe tiro. My husband had to
dress and undress mo like a baby. I tiled tho
best physicians, but their medicines gave mo no
relief, and drove me almost crazy. I was ad
vised to try CtTTicuitA Remedies, and did ao t
although my husband had to go twenty ml Jen to
get them. As soon ns hu got back, I used tho
OUTlcirnA, and In five minute* after the flrtt
application I wax perfectly fa*y f *"»d tdept
soundly all that night. Hefore 1 commenced
using the Cuticuha Remedies I could get no
ease night or day. I could not bear to get warm,
It would put me In a rago of itching. I always
keep the t,'im< üba Xi medics In my house now,
and recommend them to everybody, because of
their wonderful effect. Yours gratefully,
