15,034 PUPILS
Enrolled Yesterday in the
City Schools
Routine Business Transacted—Only
One Little Flurry Over the High
School Engineer
All the members of the board of edu
cation answered to theroll call las* night
but Messrs. Bartlett, Mathls and Braly.
W. F. Poor occupied the chair. The
early part of the evening was given over
to routine business—the reading of re
ports that were adopted as fast as read,
and with a unanimity of opinion and a
display of brotherly love that was as mo
notonous as It was unusual. Only once
was there a shadow of a dispute, and
that was too brief and mild to be worthy
of mention.
The first business of the meeting was
the reading of a communication from the
agent of a preparation known as "Dust
less," calling the attention of the board'
to its various advantages as a floor
dressing, its properties, and citing the
buildings where it has- been used, with
recommendations from the same. The
communication was voted to be placed
on file.
An itemized financial report was next
read of bills to the amount of $1218.67 de
mands on the county fund and- $2459.21
demands on the city fund, the committee
recommending the payment of same, and
on motion warrants were ordered 1 to be
drawn for the several amounts. Car
The building committee reported rec
ommending the laying of a cement side
walk in front of and walk leading to the
steps of the Amelia street school, with
a further recommendation that the work
be awarded to Odemar Bros, as that firm
is now putting walks on the adjoining
property. That, too, was adopted by
From- the committee on industrial ed
ucation, in reference to the placing of a
turning lathe in the basement of the
high school for use in the scientific eloyd
departments, the following report was
submitted and accepted:
That after a careful investigation both
of the room and' heads of the two de
partments, w,e find that a lathe such as
will be required can be easily placed in
position to accommodate the needs of
the school at an expense of about $150;
that it would not only be useful and con
venient, but a saving to the department,
as many pieces of apparatus used' in the
scientific department could be made at
little cost, which now have to be pur
Your committee would recommend the
purchase of the necessary machinery,
and also that after the same has been
placed In position the room be parti
tioned off with matched lumber.
The committee on furniture, repairs,
fuel and building supplies reported
that a contract had been awarded to
W. P. Fuller & Co. for supplies; and
after Mr. Webb had stated that the
firm in question had supplied certain
articles in their line for less than others
who had put in bids last year, the re
port was accepted.
A supplementary report was read from
the finance committee, recommending
the payment of $156 assessment for wid
ening New Main street from Thirty-sev
enth street to Slauson street, and that
the president and secretary be author
ized to sign the deed in accordance with
a communication filed with the secre
tary from John H. Drain. Also passed.
After ten minutes recess, the commit
tee on schools and teachers reported
as follows:
"First. We recommend that Miss Etta
Conner, Miss Emma Bacon and Miss
Gertrude Yenning, heretofore elected as
substitute teachers, be elected regular
"Second. That Tillie M. Oswald, Annie
M. Ellsworth, Susan H. Reeves and
Mary Junkin be elected substitute
"Third. That Miss Etta Conner be as
signed to room 3, Vernon school; that
Miss Jennie Perley be assigned to fourth
grade, Eighth-street school; that Miss
Grace Barnes be assigned to Second
street kindergarten as director; that
Miss Ruth Allyn be transferred from
Ninth-street school to Union-avenue
kindergarten, as assistant; that Miss
Alice Gray.be assigned to Ninth-street
kindergarten, as director, after noon ses
sion; that Margarita Harris be as
signed to Ninth-street kindergarten, as
assistant; that Jessie A. McGaw be
transferred from First-street kindergar
ten to Twenty-eighth street, as director,
morning session, and that Mrs. Hannah
Harcus be appointed director in the
same school, afternoon session; that
Miss Hattle M. White be transferred
from Seventh street to First street, as
director; that Miss Clara M. Ellis be
made director kindergarten at Seventh
street, morning session; that Miss Win
ona Huntley be transferred Jfrom Twen
ty-eighth street to Seventh street, as
director, afternoon session; that C. J.
Fox be transferred from Ann-street
school to Custer-street school, eighth
grade; that Miss Gertrude Yenning be
assigned to Union-avenue school, fifth
grade; that Miss Carrie N. Blanford
lie transferred from Union-avenue
school to Amelia-street school, fifth
grade; that Miss Myrtle G. Oliver be
transferred from fifth grade to second
grade in Amelia-street school; that an
additional room be opened at Highland
l J ark school; that an additional room
for the eighth grade be added to the
Thirtieth-street school; that Miss Emma
Bacon be assigned to the new room at
Highland Park school.
Superintenedent Foshay then made
the following report concerning the first
day of the school year of 1897-98: "The
total enrollment for today is 10,030, an
Increase of 1254 over the attendance of
the first day of last year. The greatest
increase is in the high school. We also
find several others very much over
"In caring for the increase In schools
already overcrowded great difficulties
are presented. We expect, howeveT, to
be able to readjust the numbers, and
by opening some half-day sessions to
relieve the congested conditions as they
now exist."
Mr. Foshay also stated that even with
the Increase of 1254 pupils there was a
smaller attendance than would have
been the case had It not been for the
circus and the Jewish holiday. The re
port was received and ordered placed
on file.
Then came the only breeze of the even
ing. Mr. Webb moved that the board
proceed to nil the offices of high school
engineer and superintendent's clerk.
Mr. Davis requested that the motion
be broken in two, as the clerk in ques
tion meant nothing more than a stenog
rapher, whereas the engineer of the high
school should be an experienced man, of
skill and particular endowments for his
profession, or words to that effect.
Mr. Webb withdrew his motion and.
moved that they proceed to the election
of the high school engineer. Mr. Davis
thought that the applicants to that posi
tion should be investigated, together
with their recommendations, as the high
est expert skill was neoessary for that
poition, and moreover the question of
politics should not be allowed to come
into t,he appointment. Mr. Davis, there
tore, pleaded for time.
Mr. Webb vehemently asseverated that
they had had. time toburn—'lots ot time
that the applications had been on tap in
the board rooms since August 2Sth, and
he remarked, with a lofty scorn, Mint Mr.
Davis might have d.one worse than to
go up there and make any investiga
tions he wanted to in the matter, and
Mr. Webb closed his argument by stat
ing, with a pious expression of injured in-
nocence, that one need but to look at the
names of the endorsers on the applica
tions, to be convinced that the charge of
political preferment was Immaterial and
Irrelevant, not to say irreverent.
A vote decided that Mr. Webb's mo
tion should prevail, and' the secretary
was ordered to read the names of appli
cants and their endorsees. Those who
had applied for the position were: C. B.
Story, W. A. Smith, J. H. Patterson, S.
E. Belcher, J. W. Sprague and A. O.
Gale. The chair explained, that W. A.
Smith desired his name withdrawn, and
gave the reasons therefor, and the other
names were voted on by roll call, with a
result that A. O. Gale was elected. Mr.
Webb moved that the election take ef
fect October 15th, or earlier if occasion
required, and' It was so ordered
Miss Grace Klngsley, the Incumbent of
the office, was duly and formally re
elected as clerk to the superintendent,
with a salary of $40 a month.
A supplementary report from the
teachers' committee was read, as fol
"We, your committee on teachers and
schools further recommend that Miss Ada
F. Blanchardand Miss Lizzie E. Batchel
der be elected as regular teachers of
sloyd, and assigned as follows:
"Miss Ada F. Blanchard to the- sloyd
room at Twenty-eighth street school;
Miss Lizzie E. Batchelder be assigned to
the sloyd room at Spring street school,
and that Miss Hattle F Gower be trans
ferred from the Twenty-eighth street
school to the Griffin avenue school." The
report was accepted, and the meeting,
on motion, stoodi adjourned.

Result of Last Week's Examination.
Successful Competitors
The success of the first written ex
amination held for the purpose of ascer
taining the mental fitness for promo
tion of members of the Are department
has induced the board of Are commis
sioners to decide that all future promo
tions will depend upon that quality as
well as upon physical perfection. Chief
of Fire Department Moore announced
yesterday the names of the men who had
passed the recent examination and the
percentage of each, as follows.
Chas Grotzlnger, 1005 points, 70 per
cent; John Landell, 1110 points, 77 pet
cent; E. R. Dorn, 1190 points, 82 per cert;
S. Quirolo, 835 points, 56 per cent; E. L,.
Barber, 945 points, 65 per cent; Walter
Jean, 1095 points, 76 per cent; A. Valen
cia, 850 points, 59 per cent; John Noonan,
1005 points, 70 per cent; H, Neath, 1115
points, 77 per cent; M. Young, 940 points,
65 per cent; C. G. Miller, 1300 points. 8D
per cent.
The greatest number of points possi
ble was 1445.
As C. S. Miller made the highest av
erage he will be promoted to the posi
tion of permanent fireman and will be
assigned to duty in the No. 1 chemical
engine company.

Street Superintendent John Drain
Makes a Plain Statement of
Pacts and Figures
The action of the city council yester
day in sustaining the protest against
the proposed construction of a new
sewer on Spring street and the abandon
ment of the proceedings in that matter
may result In the ultimate, and probably
early, resurfacing of that thoroughfare.
The connection between these two pro
posed improvements has not been men
tioned heretofore, and it wa9 not until
yesterday that It was discovered that
one was at all affected by the other.
After the sewer matter had been dis
posed of to their satisfaction, several of
the protestants stated that they were
really willing now to have the street re
surfaced, and more than one gave their
promise to assist in the work as much as
In order that they might not be
thought to be inconsistent in the matter,
those who made this promise did so with
the understanding that the councllmen
to whom It was made would not an
nounce their names until later. The
promise was agreed to, and the result
was an effort to keep the matter secret,
bue it accidentally leaked out. Just
how much of the property is represent
ed by those who have now come over to
the side of those who favor the work
of resurfacing cannot be stated, be
cause of this attempt at secresy, but
It is known that some of the most active
workers against the proposition arenow
in favor of it. Just what action will be
taken in the matter his not been de
cided, but it is expected that the ma
jority frontage on the protest can now
be easily overcome, and that the final
action of the council In the matter, when
it properly comes before that body, will
be to order the work.
In regard to the proposed resurfacing
of Spring street the following letter is
of Interest:
"To the Editor of the Los Angeles
Herald: In view of the fact that at the
present time there ls quite an agitation
1 concerning the resurfacing of Spring
street, I deem It my duty to present a
plain statement of facts to property
holders on said street, as well as to the
general public.
"Having been elected by the people to
serve them In the capacity of street su
perintendent, and having no other ob
ject in the agitating of this question
than the fact that I have the interests
of both property holders and tenants
at heart, I desire to present a few facts
to them for their mature consideration.
"In the first place, with reference to
the length of time that the pavement has
been laid, I will say that it has been in
constant use since 1887, having been
submitted to a most violent test. The
specifications called for the thickness
of the asphalt to be 1% inches, instead
of 2 inches, as has generally been re
ported, the contract figure-for the work
being 25 cents a square foot.
I specify this fact to show
the material difference in the cost
of asphalting the street ten years ago
as compared to the present time. Mis
representations of all sort have been
made by persons who are not acquaint
ed with the facts as to the extravagant
cost of resurfacing the street. I desire
to say that if the work is done in a rea
sonable time, or within the next few
months, the work can and will be done
at a cost not to exceed 9 cents a square
foot, or $1.70 a lineal foot. Having had
an extended experience, covering a pe
riod of fifteen years. In the construction
of asphalt work, I have no hesitancy in
quoting figures on work of this char
"Now, Mr. Editor, I believe I have
placed myself squarely on record on
this matter. I contend now, as I have
always, that this work is a much-needed
improvement, and should be done before
the winter rains set in, as the condition
of the street will be a menace to the
health of our citizens.

tinuous run of exciting-melodramas with
sensational effects and Incidents In
which gory crime and true love were al
ways mixed In with comic Irishmen,
Dutchmen and African darkeys, the au
diences at this house are now to be
treated to'an entire change in the bill of
fare. Manager Pearson has engaged
a fresh stock company known as the
Broadway Theaiter company, and, for
the opening of the season last night pre
sented Bronson Howard's well known
domestic drama, "Young Mrs. Win
throp." While this Is a work with the
fireside affections employed as the lead
ing motive, it does not concernitself with
low life In any department. It is dis
tinctly a dress coat drama and belongs
to a school that has enjoyed great pop
In comparing it, however, with plays
l of later date one is instantly struck with
the difference in the literary style from
that wihich is now in vogue. The char
acters In "Young Mr*. Winthrop," espe
cially the husband and wife, talk for the
most part In carefully constructed sen
tences such as one finds in an old-fash
ioned novel, say of Bulwer Lytton or of
Disraeli. They preach to one another
and use copybook sentences. The only
naturally drawn characters are the
dashing, much-married type of the di
vorce court sonool and the blind girl,
Edith. The old lawyer, Buxton Scott, is
so broadly drawn that he IsacaTicature,
and last night he was very shaky in his
legal Jargon when he was reading tht
deed of separation. It would pay to give
more attention to the detail- of this
The school of today, under the Influ
ence of writers such as Ibsen, requires
truth in the dialogue, and the conversa
tion must be framed more nearly in ac
cordance with what would actually oc
cur in simitar circumstances of life. The
difficulty which confronts the actor is
consequently no small one, when, he is
called upon to be natural In the garb of
today, while he Is speaking speeches of
didactic quality which belong to a time
that is past, even if not remotely so.
All told, there is, In spite of the dic
tion, a strong, yet tender, human, inter
est in the typical story so well related
and the reunion of the two lives that
were about to travel forever on divided
paths is made affecting, and exercises
an influence that cannot but be really
beneficent, seeing that it demonstrates
how easily misunderstandings arise,
what a slight foundation there may be
for the reports circulated by slanderous
tongues, and how mutual forbearance
and consideration are necessary in the
settlement of marital difficulties.
Of the acting of the piece, It may be
said that, taken as a whole, it was sur
prisingly good and about adequate to
the occasion. Sarah Truax in the lead
ing role showed the possession of trained
intelligence and emotional power. She
plays with refinement and, It might be
added, with grace, if a certain unbend
ing stiffness of carriage did not detract
in a measure from the effect of the pic
ture. She is undoubtedly the principal
person in the cast and she shows indica
tions of reserve power which, when de
veloped, may some day secure her a high
position on the stage.
The leading man., Charles Halleck, was
not as satisfactory. While he is of pleas
ing personality, he is at present too cold
and undemonstrative in his work. He
presents in this character no appearance
of a man engaged l in active business
life, and though his bearing Is gentle
manly, he Is not to any extent convinc
ing as the husband in the case should
be. Mr. Blakemore as the. lawyer makes
a good character sketch, rather colorless
in the earlier part of the- play, but im
proving greatly In the last act. Helen
Henry as Edith, the blind girl, was sim
ple and pathetic, with nothing overdone,
In a part that affords much temptation
for exaggeration. Her lover. Ouy Post,
was all there, and enjoyed the sympa
thies of the audience as he ultimately
did those of Miss Edith. Nan Mifflin
made an agreeable rattle out of the fat
lines of Mrs. Dick's part and captured
the house with great ease.
The Burbank management has out
done itself In the stage setting, which is
both tasteful and appropriate.
The play goes for the rest of the week.

ORPHEUM.—To say that the new
bill ls fully up to this house's high stan
dard Is significant praise. There w.ere
very few dull momeirts In last night's
performance and such were speedily re
deemed by bright business that Inter
vened. The vagaries of the orchestra
handicapped a couple of the new turns,
but this fault should be easily remedied
tonight. ,
Stanley Whiting, who ls the on.ly
holdover, except Leola Mitchell, this
wee-k, started the program, and his "rag
time" music, his characteristic Imper
sonation of the colored gentry, and the
assistance of the genuine article, proveci
once more exceedingly popular.
The skill of Provo. a Juggler, who
made his debut on the American stage
last night, is really prodigious. Among
other clever tricks he converts himself
Into a pool table and makes bottles and
plates career in fantastic courses.
Deola Mitchell, who is as cute- as she is
tiny, has a trio of new songs, and sings
there ir» a way that completely capti
vates the audience.
The act of the Girards was evidently
made in Paris and did not catch the
cultured fancy of the gallery as much
of the rest of the bill Rnmandy strug
gled hard with the score and sometimes
succeeded in getting his orchestra some
where less than half a bar behind the
performers. Emil Girard is evidently an.
artist In his line and his partner prob
ably establishes a new record for high
kicking every night.
McCarty and Reynolds, on the other
hand, kept the upper part of the audi
ence In a constant exuberance of de
light. The turn is labeled "An Irish
Character Sketch," though the Hibern
ian flavor, it must be confessed, is not
particularly pungent. However it goes
with a good swing, and McCarty is very
nimble of foot and does some capital
dancing. With the pruning of a few
chestnuts, at which even the gods forgot
to smile, their "cross-walk talk" would
be still further improved.
The eccentricities of the tramp afford
a prolific field for the Variety stage, and
Barton has made a clever study of the
genus hobo on fairly original lines, es
pecially about the shoulders. Mies Ash
i ley affords a good deal more than, mere
ly a clever foil to Barton, for she sings
a coon song very well, and by a very
simple transformation looks to the life
the tough girl. The latter seems a more
congenial companion to the act than
the high-toned lady, who apparently
has become en inseparable tradition in
this particular line of business. The
burlesque cake-walk which concludes
this team's act provoked! roars of laugh
ter, with Barton's grotesque gyrations
and Ashley's Immovable lower lip.
Much clever work on the horizontal
bars has been seen at the Orpheum, but
never anything to equal that of Van
Auken, McPhee and HIH. They form as
supple, agile and graceful a trio as
could well be Imagined. Several of
their feats are little short of marvelous
and are executed without apparently the
least effort. Theiract was watched with

The End of a Westlake Park Amour.
Silly's Desperate Effort
to Escape
George Dllly was cast into the city
prison last night on a charge of criminal
assault. He was arrested at 8:30 oclock
by Special Officer Wilson at Westlake
park. Miss A. C. Jansen, a young worn-
an about 24 years of age, was the victim
of the man's assault, but fortunately
Wilson came to her aid. Dllly did not
relish his arrest by any means and
made a desperate attempt to escape
when taken to the Jail, but was caught
by Private Patrolman Strode.
Miss Jansen and Dllly are both em
ployed by W. S. Arnold of 630 Sara Pedro
street, the former as cook and the lat
ter as coachman. The woman has been
working for Mr. Arnold for only two
weeks, and while there met the coach
man. He seemed to be quite a pleasant
person, and Miss Jansen began to enter
tain a partiality for him; so when he
asked: her one evening to go to church
she readily consented This was the
only time they had been out together in
the evening until last night, when they
went to "Westlake park, arriving about
8 oclobk. They sat down on a bench on
the west side, and had not been there
long be-fore Diily became very familiar,
and suddenly seizing the woman threw
her on the ground, at the same time
placing his hand over her mouth. Miss
Jansen struggled violently to free her
self but without success. She managedi,
however, to get his hand away from her
mouth and began screaming for aid.
Officer Wilson had Just passed the
pair a short while before and was near al
hand. He hurried to the place and there
saw Diily holding the woman down on
the ground. As soon as Dllly saw the
in truder he sprang up and showed fight,
but his martial front was speedily with
drawn when the pistol of the officer was
shoved into his face. Diily then surren
dered himself, but begged the officer not
to put handcuffs on him. To this Wilson
consented, but he soon had cause to re
gret his generosity. On the car going
down town Diily tried his powers of
persuasion upon Wilson, but the officer
refused to allow the man to escape.
Diily- even offered to give his captor $50
If he would turn him loose, but Wilson
continued obdurate.
The officer got his prisoner safely to
the door of the police station, but In
stead of walking quietly inside as he had
■promised, Dllly bolted down Flrsl street
toward Broadway. Wilson took after
him, calling "Stop thief, stop thief!"
Diily turned south on Broadway and
turned east and continued down Second
street. He seemed in a fair way to es
cape- from his pursuer, but fortunately
Patrolman Strode grabbed Dllly around
the waist and held him until Wilson ar
rived and took him back to the city
