DEMOCRATS AGAIN MEET
City Convention Convened
to Fill Vacancies
WITH FOR 11 GOB
Made in Several of tbe City
Wards
A MESSAGE TO W. J. BRYAN
The Convention Sends Greeting to the
Great Man
Telllvi Mia o! the Victory Won In Los
Angtles
Chairman Creighton Announces the Ap
pointment of the Executive Com
mittee of the Democratic
City Committee.
The Democratic city convention was
reconvened yesterday in Turnverein
hall.
The necessity for again calling th»
general convention together was not ab
solute, still it was considered to be the
wise and proper policy.
The facts are that there were vacan
cies on the ticket to till owing to the fact
that several nominees for the council
and board of education had declined.
The City committee was fully author
ized to fill those vacancies, but it was
deemed wise to have the duly author
ized delegates representing .the whole
people make the nominations.
Then there could be no doubt that the
nominations made would be satisfactory
to the people, for they would be made I
by their duly authorized representatives.
At 10 oclock yesterday morn Ing Chair
man Dockweiler called the convention lo
order. There was a large attendance of
delegates.
Mr. Dockweiler announced that the
purpose uf the convention was to make
nominations for the council and the
board of education in the Third and
Fifth wards ar.d for the council in the
Second and Seventh wards
The delegates from the wards affecte.l
then resolved Into ward conventions and
later reported the following nomina
tions :
Second ward —For councilman, Jam os
A. Craig.
Thiiti ward—For councilman, Nicolas
p. Wynne,
For member of the board of education,
George F. Herr.
Pitch ward—For councilman, Frank
Sabtchl.
For member of the board of educa
tion. J. H. Braly.
Seventh ward —For councilman, James
A simian.
These nominations were all ratified.
J. K. I'rmston was the opposing can
didate in the Seventh ward. He claimed
that he was nominated and. protested
against the ratification of Mr. Ashman's
nomination, in this ward there will be
a squabble. '
In the Second ward C. Severance, the
Populist nominee for the council with
drew voluntarily. He found that he
would be unable to make the fight. The
nominee is a business man, and he will
be elected. It is James A. Craig.
Before the convention adjourned It.
J. Colvtr secured the door and said:
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen—Here
in the city of Los Angeles a notable
victory has been wop against over
whelming odds. For the first time m
sixteen years—slr.ee IKfiO—the city of
Los Angeles has cast a majority of its
vote for the Democratic nominee for
president of the United States. This is a
great satisfaction to us who have labor
ed so earnestly to bring the result about.
However, our fellow citizens elsewhere
in the nation have failed to agree with
us. With them we have no fault to find,
We take It that they have done their
duty as Grod gave them the power to see
It. and we feel that we have done what
we conceived to be for the good of our
country and its people. In the general,
result we acquiesce as loyal citizens of
the republic, but at the same time it
is a source of satisfaction to us to know
that here at home a majority of our
friends and neighbors thought as we
thought and did as we did. *
"Therefore, Mr. Chairman. I move you
that the chairman of this convention be
directed to forward the following mess
age to William J. Bryan:
"William J. Bryan. Lincoln, Neb.; The
Democracy of Los Angeles city in con
vention assembled sends greeting. For
Ihe first time in sixteen years a majori
ty of the voters of Los Angeles city have
cast their ballots for the Democratic
nominee for president of the United
States. We were with you in the start
and remained with you to the end."
The proposition met with unanimous
approval and great applause. It was
enthusiastically adopted and later in the
day the message was wired to Mr. Bryan.
BOWERS AND M LACHLAN.
Both Are Placed on the Retired List
by the Voters.
The election ot Charles A. Barlow,
which has been announced by the Her
ald tor the last three days, Is now at
last admitted by everybody. He will
have a majority ot nearly 1000 when all
the votes are in. As it is now, it is about
600—to be exact, 428.
Bowers is beaten for congress in the
Seventh district. He tried to advocate
silver and the election of McKinley at
the same time, but it was no go. His
Inconsistency defeated him and Dr. H.
N. Castle is elected by about 200 votes.
William H. Carlson, mayor of Sar.
Diego, ran independent and he pulled
off enough votes to defeat Bowers.
Fresno county knocked Bowers out. It
gave a majority against him of 1600.
The result in the state is still a mat
ter of doubt. The Republican majority
first claimed of 7000 has been pulled
down to 4000 and it may be entirely
wiped out by the official count. The Re
publicans seem to have had the counters
in this election all over the country and
more particularly in California and Los
Angeles county.
In its tabulated statement of the result
in this state the Times yesterday morn
ing figured the McKinley majority at
2465. At that time Republicans here only
claimed 1100. Since then that majority
has been brought down to 900.
All anybody wants in the matter of
the count is a square deal, and that Is
what Chairman Alford proposes to have.
The fact that this state either went for
Bryan of McKinley will not affect the
result and cuts no figure. If the state
on a square, fair, honest return has gone
for McKinley, well and'good. Every
loyal citizen will say amen. But if it
has gone for Bryan the electoral vote
should be cast for him and not for any
body else.
The official count will commence Mon
day and that will s*tU« everything. The
watchers are still guarding the ballots
and they will continue to until after the
count commences.
GONE NORTH.
Los Angeles Compelled to Give Up the
Prize Banner to Alameda.
About 100 Republicans left for Oak
land last evening, carrying with them
the Republican banner. Los Angeles
county is no longer the banner Repub
lican county of the state. Alameda
county has taken the plum and gets
the banner which Los Angeles county
has held for six years.
The Republicans of this city feel cha
grined at being compelled to give it up.
One of them said yesterday:
"Col. Otis and the Times has lost us
the banner. If the Democrats had hart
an Alameda county edition of the Times
printed and circulated up there during
the campaign that county would have
gone for Bryan. We figure that the
policy pursued by the Times in the
campaign in its support of McKinley lost I
4000 votes to the Republican electoral
ticket. It is a rank hoodoo, and there j
is no use trying to disguise the fact."
BETTER CITY GOVERNMENT
Will the League Nominate a Candidate
For Mayor
Will the ticket of the netter City Gov
ernment remain acephalous? That Is the
question which the league convention
will decide In special session this after
noon.
John F. Francis' declination of the
nomination for mayor has left th 3 league
without a standard bearer, hence
the delegates are requested to reassem
ble in new Turner hall this afternoon to
fill the vacancy or take whatever action
may be deemed wise In the premises.
General regret is expressed by mem
bers of the league at Mr. Francis' ina
bility to run. as he has been looked upon
as the ideal candidate. There are others,
but so far as can be learned not one of
the several gentlemen prominently men
tioned in connection with the office has
yet consented to lend the use of his
name. The reason given by them is the
j demand made on their valuable time by
I other duties and aversion to entering
j politics. It may be that a man pnssess
i Ing the high quallAcatlonstrequlred and
| willing to thow himself into the breach
will be found before the sun sets today.
In the event of an independent can
didate's fatlinig to materialize, the ques
tion of indorsing one or the other of the
standard-bearers of the old parties will
I arise. There seems to be a well-defined
purpose among the delegates, however,
not to prejudice the chances of either
Mr. Snyder or Mr. Martin by declaring
for or against either of them. As the
political organizations represented by
each of the two regular nominees ac
cording to the returns of the national
election, apear to be about equally
matched in this city, it will make a
pretty dual combat If they are left to
light It out alone, and one ln which he
better man should win. A third can
didate, to be elected, would have to be
a man who would draw heavily from
the natural support of the two other
nominees. It is doubtful if such a man
i is available at this juncture,but the com
mittee will try to And one.
ln juslflcatlon of the advisability of
leaving the nomination open, it Is con
tended that the office of mayor, under
the present charter, is not of supreme
Importance anyway.and that the league
bad better let it go by default and bend
its energies toward electing good men
to the council and such offices as city
clerk, assessor, etc., than to put up a
mayoralty candidate whose hope of suc
cess would be doubtful.
Ordinarily the campaign committee of
the league would have made a nomtnn
| tion to fill the vacancy, but that com
j mittee has not yet been appointed. Fur
; thermore, the central committee con
; sidered the question of such grave im
: portance that It was thought best to let
: the delegates chosen by the postal pri
l lnary assume the responsibility of set
, tling it. Accordingly a call was ts
; sueil for a special session.. All the dele
; gates are urged to be in attendance
: promptly at 2 p. m. so the business can
I be concluded before nightfall,
i The delegates from the Seventh ward
j will nominate a candidate for council
! man in lieu of W. E. Keller, the postal
I primary nominee, who has been declar
! Ed inelllgihle by the superior court,
i The central committee of the leagup
■ held a brief session last evening, but
transacted no business of importance.

RETURNS THANKS.
S. A. Waldron returns thanks to all
the friends who supported him for as
semblyman from the Seventy-third dis
trict. To the Democrats and to the
Populists, all of whom loyally support
ed him, he feels obligated.
RENTED A BICYCLE.
But Neglected to Return It and Is Now
in Jail.
A barefooted street Arab about 12
years old faced the police clerk at the
booking desk last evening at 5 oclock
and tried to explain why he had not re
turned a rented bicycle. His name was
given as George Gray, an orphan who
had but recently come from San Diego
and was without home or friends.
On Friday afternoon he had a few
cents, with which he hired a wheel from
the Dayton agency on Broadway. He
kept the bicycle until long after the time
it should have been returned, and then
being afraid to take It back stood it up
alongside the curb by the Santa Fe depot
and crawled into a barn to sleep for the
night. When he got out In the morning
the wheel was gone, he knew not where.
Feeling uneasy about it he went to the
bicycle store and asked whether or not
they had got it, and was by the propri
etor, Mr. Fisk, taken to the police sta
tion. George was put in Jail by the of
ficers and a search made for the wheel,
but without success. What he will be
charged with is as yet problematical,
although an embezzlement complaint
will probably be sworn out.
COW THIEF CAPTURED.
Officer Talamantes Makes a Clever
Catch In Sonoratown.
Officer Talamantes, who does duty in
Sonoratown, but who has of late been
extensively employed in the detective
department of the city police force, made
another clever capture yesterday, land
ing Joe Robbete, an Italian, behind the
bars on a charge of grand larceny.
On the night of October 29th A. De
vleux, residing at 1205 Alhambra avenue,
staked out his milch cow on a lot ad-

ed the matter to the police and Talaman
tea was detailed to work up the case.
Although there was but few clews to
work upon the officer soon found where
the cow had been sold to a butcher and
converted Into beef.
The hide of the animal w as still in evi
dence, also the halter and picket chain
by which she had been fastened. A de- 1
scrlptlon of the party who sold the cow
was furnished by the butcher and Rob
bete was arrested yesterday morning at
his room In the S. pulveda block on
North Main street. He has been posi
tively Identified as the man who sold the
cow to be killed for beef ani today he
will be arraigned ln the police court for
grand larceny.
CAUGHT WITH THE PLUNDER
A Sporty Younjj Man Accused of Two
Burglaries
S. G. Neal Likes Fine Clothes and Per
fumes, So Took Means to Gratify
His Desires
Wearing a natty suit of clothes, a
Jaunty little bicycle cap and in general I
presenting the appearance of a dashing
young sport, S. G. Neal, whom the de
tectives denominate as a "smooth guy,"
w as last night shortly after 6 landed in
the city jail with at least two charges
of burglary to answer for.
Neal has been In the city since last
February and evidently has refined and
expensive tastes to gratify if the stolen
articles found In ills possession are an
indication of his preferences. Full dress
suits of the finest broadcloth, black di
agonal cutaways and cheviot business
suits, all custom made he had on hand,
and the assortment of colognes, costly
perfumes and essences found in his room
would make a society belle sick with
envy.
On the night of October 11th last there
was stolen from room 14 of the Lan
franco block about $400 worth of per
fumes, mostly of the finest description,
in cut glass bottles. The stock had Just
been moved in from 211 Commercial
street and had not been arranged on the
shelves. Entrance was effected through
a window- opening into a hallway and the
thief stole all he could carrya away. No
clew was ever discovered to the perpe
trator of the robbery.
Agan, on October 211, during the night,
the store of the Buffalo Woolen company
at 248 S. Broadway was entered at the
front door by some one using a false key.
From the place a line full dress broad
cloth coat, a black coat and vest and a
full business suit of gray cheviot were
taken. The swallow tail was not en
tirely completed and still had the bast
ing threads in it. The other clothes were
ready to wear. All these goods were re
covered last night and Neal is the ac
cused thief.
He came to this city with a medium for
whom he acted as a sort of advance
agent, but the latter after a stay of Eev
everal months left town and forgot to
take Neal along. Neal was learning tel
egraphy and meanwhile was stopping
at a fashionable boarding house on
South Hill street, where he had a cheap
top-story room. He sported good clothes
but failed to pay his bills, which aroused
suspicion. The attention of the officers
was called to him and his actions were
watched.
Special John Shields was detailed on
the case and assisted by Detectives Ali
ble and Hawley brought Neal to book.
Last evening a descent on his room was
made while he w as out and a search in
stituted. In a closet were found the
suits of clothes, brand new and unworn,
a telescope grip full of large bottles of
perfumery, which had been opened, and
a box packed full of the finest goods
ready for shipment east. When Neal
came in he was disagreeably surprised
and was at once marched off to the sta
tion.
He was searched and the evidences of
his profession found ln ' his
There were skeleton keys and a number
of lock picks made from button hooks,
nippers, etc. A key which fits the front
door of the clothing company's store was
also discovered. The prisoner maintain
a stolid demeanor and refused to say
anything. After refusing to answer
questions he was locked up for the night
The officers profess to believe that he is
an eastern crook and that several more
jobs can be traced to him. At any rate
they have two distinct and clear cases,
both of which will be pressed and Neal
will be sent over the road for a term of
years tf possible.
BOTH HORSES AND COWS.
Fillo Luckette Now Has Another Charge
to Answer.
It was only Thursday afternoon that
Fillo Luckette was arraigned in the po
lice court on a grand lareey charge of
stealing a horse and buggy from A. J.
Bennett, proprietor of the Westminster
stables on Fourth street, and had date
Of examination set.
Now the police detectives have another
case to prosecute him upon, the theft ot
a cow. It is alleged that a few days ago
Luckette stole the animal from where It
was picketed out on Mission road and
sold tne animal to a butcher. The cow
was killed but the hide, the picket chain
and halter have been recovered and arc
held as evidence of the crime. Luckette
has been Identified by the butcher to
whom he sold the cow and by two other
parties who saw the animal in his pos
session. Numerous tbefts of the kind
have lately been reported and the olH
cers may be able to trace further miss
| ing cows to bis door.
! MISDEAMEANOR EMBEZZLEMENT
An Ex-Collector Arrested on a Serious
Charge
On a complaint sworn to by J. C. Mc-
Kinney of the Ice and Cold Storage com
-1 pany of this city, Thomas Morgan was
: yesterday afternoon arrested by Detec
tive Steele on Main street and locked
up for embezzlement.
Morgan was formerly employed by the
company as driver and collector, but
quit a week or two ago. It was claimed
that he had collected something over $80
for the company and that, deducting
about $40 due him as wages, he failed to
account for $42.35. On this score the com
| plaint was Issued and the arrest fol
lowed. Morgan claims that the arrest Is
a mistake, and that the whole affair
arises out of business differences.
He was arraigned before Justice Morri
son and examination set for today. Kail
was fixed, but it was late in the evening
before it was secured and Morgan was
released.
INJURED WHILE AT PLAY.
A boy named Willie Stephens, resid
ing at No. 560 West Sixth street near the
corner of Hill, was brought to the re
ceiving hospital at 5 oclock yesterday
afternoon by a citizen who found him
lying near Sixth street park in a helpless
condition. The lad said that he had at
tempted to jump a fence while at play
and fell and was knocked unconscious.
His right arm was dislocated at the el
bow and was set by Dr. Bryant, after
which he was sent home.
AT THE THEATERS
LOS ANGELES THEATER.—The au
dience present la3t night was one of the
most fashionable that has gathered in
this house this season, and withal, it was
likewise one of the largest assemblages
gathered there since the days of the Bos
tonians. The Little Trooper, a spark
ling vaudeville operetta, was the bill,
presented by the Delia Fox Comic Opera
company.
Perhaps there is no one before the
footlights who possesses the charming
personality of Delia Fox. Her history
on the lyric stage reads like- a page from
some brilliant and captivating romance.
Since the days not so long agone when
as a winsome girl, alblet she is barely
24 years old now, she charmed and de
lighted play-going people by her superb
presentment of Yvonne in Mlllocker's
tuneful opera The King's Fool, until the
present epoch when she has had ali
fashionable New York at her feet, ac
knowledging her a queen In her respect
ive positions In Ihe lyric equally as pop
ular as the statuesque Lillian Russell,
this petite singer has achieved her suc
cess by earnest, conscientious effort.
Neither has this pre-eminence been
bounded alone by her attractive physi
cal graces, for. gifted with a voice of
singular sweetness, flexibility and
power, she is subtly forceful ami versa
tile in histrionic lines, and limns the
emotions, ihe play of feeling, the clouds
and sunshine of fair femininity with a
graphic fidelity and alertness that re
veals in all her presentments the con ■
SUmmate student, who. bad; of the les
sons of experience, has the- Are an.!
Hame of true histrionic genius. As
Clalrete Duval, there is a rare opportu
nity for manifestation of her multifar
ious talents and she fairly fascinated
that large audience Inst night with the
charm and felicity of hor personality.
The operetta was beautifully staged
as to principals, chorus ami accessories.
The chorus is made ol young and unusu
ally pretty girls and the y can sing. .Mis.
Dragging as Mathllde Louvln gave us
a finished Impersonation. She has a
pure, fresh, melodious voice and is a re
markably handsome girl. Mr. Mc-
Donough as Glbard gave us some fine
grotesque comady. He is a splendid ac
tor and his fun-making was most po
tential. He was ably seconded by Mr.
Blair as Benoit. Mr. Ohllvers as Emlie,
the fickle husband, and Mr. Campbell as
Mlchonnet were both strong assump
tions, and both are gifted with remark
ably good voices. Mr. Dungan'S Colonel
was of course good, and Miss Frigahza
as Octavie lent piquancy and sparkle
to the scenes in which she participated.
The choral work in ihe last act Is nota
bly fine. In fact, the musical score of
Little Trooper is of the light, catchy.
French bouffe school, interspersed with
quite a number of gems of melody. In
the Anale Miss Fox was literally covered
with diamonds. This afternoon the Lit
tle Trooper will be given at the matinee
and tonight the romantic operetta,
Fleur de Lis will be the bill.
* ♦ •
THE ORPHEUM. —A sensational
vaudeville bill will be presented at this
house at the matinee today.
THE BURBANK.—Town Topics, that
very laughable farce comedy which has
been playing at the Burbank the past
week, closes Its engagement with a mati
nee today and the last performance to
night. It Is a very funny play, present
ed by clever people and anyone in need
of a good laugh should take advantage
of these two performances and enjoy
themselves. The Ideal Opera company
follows in Offenbach's opera, Madam
Favart.
MAKING ARTIFICIAL EARS.
Those Who Need the Luxuries Are Com
pelled to Pay for Them.
If there Is one branch of scientific
manufacturing that would seem to have
reached perfection within the last dec
ade it is the making of artificial ears.
Such perfect reproductions are turned
out nowadays that they cannot be dis
tinguished, even upon a fairly close in
spection, from the natural ear. Made of
a specially prepared rubber, flesh-col
ored In the rough, they are painted by
hand' In exact imitation of the remain
ing ear of the unfortunate customer,
and as carefully "touched" nnd marked
over as an artist's picture. This is nec
essary, for an artificial ear mu3t be
perfect to be acceptable, and such care
ful work pays the maker, for he gets
$100 apiece for them.
fn a certain workshop, the other day,
where much scientific work Is done,
there was .shown to a Tribune repre
sentative a little box some seven or
eight inches long, less than two Inches
broad and hardly half an inch high.
"There is $uOO worth of goods in that
box," said the foreman as he lifted off
the cover, displaying five rubber ears
lying in cotton. "These are for four dif
ferent men and one woman —you see
that little ear there—ami all they need
now is for the artist to call for them
and touch 'em up according to slips
we'll give him telling just how thecolor
lng should go on. We studied ou. cus
tomers carefully when we took the or
ders.
"A hundred dollars seems a big price,
doesn't tt, to pay for a little thing like
one of those ears, that's so flexible you
can crumple it up in your hand easily?
But people that have never made arti
ficial ears have no Idea of the work that
in on them. There is no guessing about
making them. You have to be as exact
as If you were carving out a statue.
In the first place, when a men comes
here to get an ear to replace one he's
lost, we take a mold of the ear he has
left, and if there is any part of the other
we must get a mold of that, too, so as to
be able to lit on the new ear. There are
no two ears exactly the same, and it
takes our most skilled workmen to get
an ear from this mold or pair of molds
that is lifelike and appears to have the
color of licsh.
"When finished the new ear is pasted
on the old stump, or simply set precisely
where the old ear was, and not one man
in 1000 can tell the difference. It is really
only the first ear that is expensive. What
costs is to make the mold. If a man has
his mold with us we will give him a du
plicate ear for about $-0 each. There is
one customer on our books hailing from
Chicago who buys live ears a year from
us on an average. I don't know what
he does with them all, but he seems to
want them.
"The demand, take It altogether, is
limited, and I don't suppose we ever
turn out more than twenty new ears a
year. We have only been making them
up to our present standard a couple of
years, by the way.
"This vulcanized rubber that can be
bent anil twisted experience has taught
us is the best material to use. We have,
experimented with nearly everything
Last summer we tried aluminium, think
ing that it would be lighter, but. do our
best, the ear turned out far heavier, and,
besides, the metal would not lend Itself
nearly as well as rubber to the Imita
ting of flesh tints.
"How do people lose their ears? In
two ways chiefly—in railroad accidents
or by getting caught In machinery. The
former is by far the more common."—

INJURED IN A RUNAWAY.
Anaheim Residents Come to Grief on
Boyle Heights.
| An elderly gentleman named Car/
Krause, accompanied by his son Paul,
drove into town yesterday from Ana
heim with a load of peanuts which they
sold. While on the way home about 8
oclock last evening over on Boyle
Heights, near the orphan asylum, their
team ran away, upsetting the wagon
and throwing both occupants out. The
I elder Krause had two ribs broken ln the
smash-up and the boy lit on his face,
I disfiguring his countenance.
Both were brought to the receiving
hospital in a passing wagon. Dr. Ains
worth attended them and dressed their
injuries. The old man was painfully
bruised about the body, but the boy es
caped with a few scratches.
A GLORIFIED SEALSKIN
Moire will be a favorite silk for the
winter season, whilst velvet will reign
supreme. As I have told you before,
velvet and braid mixed will be the rage.
A smart afternoon princess gown had
every seam outlined with silk braid, fin
ished with a wide collar of the same.
Braiding may be very effective, but I
think we shall get a little tired of it, for,
| after all. it is not half so pretty mixed
I with velvet as fur is. A lovely velvet
frock had the hem of the skirt bor
dered with chinchilla, and was made
with a full bodice of moire with a deep
chinchilla collar and velvet sleev>s. A
green velvet princess robe or coat —It
might have been either—had huge re
vers and straight pieces of sable down
the front of the skirt and there was a
full waistcoat let in of white satin and
old lace.. Sealskin and chinchilla make
a beautiful mixture, but I do not think
quite so lovely as sealskin and sable,
j However, just at present It is a little
I more chic, and will undoubtedly be in
I favor with the smart public. A lovely
■ tight-fitting coat of sealskin had a Jew
! eled belt arountl the waist, and was
finished with a huge yoke-shaped col
lar and deep cuffs of chinchilla, lined
with a palest mauve brocade.—St.
Paul's.
FIRE ON HILL STREET

I FOR WEAK HAIR.
When the hair begins to fall, and ap
proved hair tonics and brushing have lit
tle effect, to thoroughly massage the j
pcalp Is often beneficial, as It stimulates
the circulation, und also raises the hair
on the head and gives it a heavy appear
ance. The massage should be given with
the palm of the hand and the fingertips,
but the nails should not touch the scalp.
The staple good Japan
tea is Schilling's Best.
| The price is so low that
;to call it good is to seem to
lie about it.
The grocer gives your
money back, without a word,
if you want it. That don't
look like lying, does it?
