and Is Planning Many Import.
ant Additions to Its
The boarding hall, for which the T-
W. C. A. has planned and hoped ever
since the association numbered a few
dozen members occupying rooms on
Second street, has become a reality.
The association now has 3641 mem
bers and the need of a place where
young women alone in Los Angelea
can have homelike surroundings at
small cost, has been felt more keenly
as the association grew. The organ
ization Is the largest of its kind in
the world and the women who are
at the head of It have worked diligent
ly for this latest addition.
The building is situated at the cor
ner of Twentieth street and Grand
avenue. Yesterday there was a formal
opening and all afternoon and evening
guests filed In and out of the house
to inspect the rooms and pause for a
cup of tea in the cosy dining room.
The house contains thirty rooms,
including sleeping apartments, parlors,
kitchen and dining room. All are large
and newly furnished in the most home
like manner possible. The house is
surrounded on the front and sides by
broad verandas. It was formally a
family hotel. Miss Gertrude Gilbert
is the house secretary and she has
had much experience in this line of
work, having occupied a similar posi
tion with the association at Johns
town, N. Y.
Already nearly all the rooms have
been taken and there will probably
be many more applicants than can
be accommodated.
"When this home is no longer large
enough we hope to start another in
some other part of the city," said Mrs.
Frank A. Dewey, the president of the
association, yesterday afternoon. "We
do not believe In having a houße too
large, for then it is not so apt to be
homelike. It will be better to have
several houses, This is just a be
ginning and we hope to do more."
Prominent Los Angeles women who
are members of the board of directors
acted on the reception committee yes
terday and some of the secretaries
poured tea.
Under the direction of Miss Margaret
Henderson the house has been beau
tifully decorated In the association
colors. In the dining room where the
tea tables were arranged the scheme
was particularly attractive. Fancy bas
kets of marguerites, yellow chrysan
themums, white cosmos and ferns tied
with bows of yellow satin ribbon oc
cupied the center of each of the four
tables and woodwardia ferns and yel
low chrysanthemums bnnkerl the side
board and mantel.
Miss Cora L. Tatham, the general
secretary, received with members of
the hoard, who included Mesdames

Los Angeles Citizens Adore Memory
of the Man Who Stood for Free.
' dom — Excellent Program
Is Rendered
"Gustavus Adolphus was the greatest
king on earth and had it not been for
his influence Protestantism would not
now be In existence, and Catholicism
would have held greater sway than
it does today," said Rev. Herbert J.
Weaver in his address last evening at
the Gustavus Adolphus festival in
Blanchard hall.
The festival was opened with prelim
inary remarks by G. Eckdahl, the
chairman, who expressed regrets that
the seating capacity of the hall was
inadequate for the large gathering
seeking admission. The program was
enlivened by the participants, who
wore the national costumes so dear to
the hearts of all from Sweden.
B. R. Baumgardt delivered an ad
dress and recitation eulogizing the king
as a warrior and Christian who had
faith in his God and a great lover of
liberty, and who was trusted by his
Rev. E. Nelander, A. M., Ph.D., em
phasized the fact that if It had not
been for the beloved king whose fes
tival was celebrated there would not
only have been no Protestantism, but
no Declaration of Independence, and
slavery would have reigned through
out the world. The speaker linked the
lives o[ Abraham Lincoln- and Gustn
vus Adolphus, both having been mar
tyrs tn their countries. The speaker
closed by saying:
Honor Memory of King
"King Gustavus Adolphus, we adore
thy memory in Sweden and in the
United States. Thy heritage will de
scend to us all, enshrining thy love in
our hearts."

Mass Meeting Held to Object to Pro.
posed Crematory — Speakers Hurl
Heated Epithets at Munici
pal Officials
Masonic hall at Pico and El Mollno
streets was crowded last night with in
dignant residents of Pico Heights, who
held a public mass meeting to consider
what steps can be taken to prevent a
crematory from being erected at the
corner of Sixteenth and Grover streets.
Two hundred ' ipeople were present,
among them many ladles, who were
equally emphatic with the men In ex
pressing themselves against the pro
posed enterprise. It was decided to
circulate an initiative and referendum
L. M. Fall of 1531 Vermont avenue
acted as chairman, and Miss Fannie
Fullerton of 2482 Scpulvcda street as
secretary. L. M. Schaeffle, pastor of the
Pico Heights Congregational church,
was one of the first to speak against
the crematory. Mr. Schaefflo alluded to
the work of the city council as being
very unsatisfactory. He spoke of their
action at the meeting held last Mon
day, when they refused to pass an ordi
nance against the crematory.
Says Council Was Fixed
The ordinance that was submitted to
a vote of the council was one legislat
ing against the establishment and oper
ating of any more crematories within
the city limits. It was filed.
In part Mr. SchaefHe said: "We should
bo more careful In selecting the men
that are to represent us in the next
council. It seems strange to me that
out of a population of nearly 200,000
it is so hard to find six honest men.
I do not mean to Insinuate that the
present councilmen are not honest, but
I am convinced that they were fixed
on the question of this crematory."
Speeches made by other residents
were equally as antagonistic to the
councilmen, and one man, D. H. McFaul
of 2828 Sepulveda street alluded to
them as a lot of rascals, and suggested
that enough money bo raised to buy
them the next time a proposed ordi
nance was submitted to them.
Defends President Summer-land
Councilman Theodore Hummerland,
who was elected from the Fourth ward,
was discussed by a number of the resi
dents. Some favored Summerlanrt,
others were sure that he did not try to
push through the ordinance. A hot
debate took place between W. S. Lang
and Mrs. B. Taylor on the manner In
which Summerland did his duty at tho
session of the city council last Mon
day. Mrs. Taylor was strong in her
defense of Summerland. She said:
"I know that Mr. Summerland tried
to get the other members of the coun
Some skin diseases are active in Summer, while others wait until cole
weather to manifest themselves. Winter Eczema sleeps in the system through
the long hot months, and gives no sign of its presence; but at the coming oi
Winter the trouble asserts itself and it becomes one of the most painful and
aistressing of all skin diseases. The blood is filled with poisonous acids
which seem to be excited by the cold; and as these are thrown off through
the pores and glands, the skin cracks and bleeds, the flesh becomes hot and
feverish and the itching intense. The natural oils which keep the skin soft
and pliant are dried up by the cold, bleak winds, causing it to. become hard

parts of the body may be affected. So painful and distressing is the trouble
that the sufferer constantly 41 doctors" and treats It trying to get relief.

before he went Into the meeting that
it was lost and he was defeated for

told me that It would be impossible
to push It through, but that he was
willing to fight for It until the last."
S. D. Darrow of 1421 Dewey street,
W. S. Lang of 540 Pico street and
George L. McGahn of 2828 Sepulveda
street were appolnteed on a committee
to draw up resolutions condemning
the action of the council In refusing
to pass the ordinance that was sub
mitted to them.
The resolutions In part read: "Re
solved, That we pledge ourselves, Indi
vidually and collectively, to exert every
energy to stop the building of a crema
tory in our midst; and should we fail
in this direction we pledge ourselves
by all honorable means to prevent the
building being used as a crematory.
. "Resolved, That the city council of
the city of Los Angeles, by their con
duct in refusing to protect the people
of Pico Heights from the erection of
a crematory on the corner of Sixteenth
and Grover streets in said city, be and
are hereby denounced as unfaithful to
their trust, false to their sworn duty
and unfit representatives of the Intel
ligence of the people and a disgrace
to the city.
Demand Recall of Council
"Resolved, That we need honest men
to represent us in the next council, as
millions of dollars are at their disposal
and millions of graft In sight, and we
demand the recall of the present coun
It was moved that a copy of the
resolutions be sent each councilman
and a copy be sent to the several news
papers In the city.
After the ereading of the resolutions,
which was wildly cheered, it was
moved to circulate an initiative and
referendum petition, which will de
mand that the present ordinance on
file before the council be made a law
or submitted to a vote of the people.
The petition must have at least 4250
names signed to it to have its effect.
A committee was appointed to draft
and circulate it.
Before adjourning steps were taken
to form a permanent organization for
the prevention of any en^rprise that
is disagreeable to the neighborhood,
The name for the organization was
selected as the Pico Heights Improve
ment association. Another meeting
will^be held in the near future.
