TRAGEDY GIVES
ACTRESS CHANGE
"GIOCONDA" PROVES TO BE
MOST FASCINATING
Miss Constance Crawley Surpasses
Former Work by Excellent Por.
trayal at Literary Matinee.
Audience Delighted
If nil the literary matinees are like
yesterday's production of Gabriel
d'Annunzlo's "Oloronda" at the Helasco
theater, we mny rejoice and be thank
ful that the summer Inertia is to be
relieved by something especially good.
The performance yesterday was for
the most part an artistic success. The
terribly beautiful tragedy which the
French dramatist hns created is filled
with poetic lines and Intense situations.
It is throughout a series of dialogues
between characters drawn with the
hand of an artist.
The men and women who Interpreted
these characters and the audience were
In harmony with each other.
Miss Constance Crawley as Sylvia
gave n performance that surpassed
anything she hns done In Los Angeles,
with the possible exception of her
Everyman. The part Is one that gives
wonderful scope for acting, and Miss
Crawley exhibited an understanding
and sympathy of the character.
Miss Crawley at Her Best
In the first net Sylvia rejoices over
the recovery of her husband Lucio,
who has attempted suicide by shoot-
Ing himself at the foot of the statue
which Is his masterpiece. The model
Gloconda hns come to represent art tn
him. and because his will Is weaker
than hers and she fascinates him, he
tries to kill himself to keep from hurt-
Ing the fine spirit of his wife.
The struggle of Lucio against the
fascination of Gioconda and the strug
gle of Gioeonda and Sylvia for the love
of the sculptor form the -play nnd lead
up to the tragic sacrifice of Sylvia in
the third act.
The last act was the triumph of the
piece. Sylvia is maimed and pitiful,
but even more beautiful than before.
Her long sleeves cover arms from
which the beautiful hands have been
amputated.
In her home by the .sea she is visited
by La Sironetta, the sea child, a crea
ture of dreams, weird and romantic.
In the lines between La Sirenotta and
Sylvia, in which the sea child tells
some of her wonderful fancies. Miss
Crawley was at her best, hut the sur
prise to nil came with La Slrenetta.
Marian Pierce, a San Diego girl who
appeared for the first time In Los An
geles, was La Rlrenetta.
Stranger Pleases Audience
The little stranger caught up the
spirit of the part in a way that capti
vated the audience. She allowed the
poetry of the lines to take possession of
her, anrl her natural charm of face,
combined with the fantastic costume,
further enhanced the picture.
The role of Lucio proved a chance for
delicate psychological analysis, and
Harry Mestayer's versatile talents were
put to good use.
'Lillian Lnmson, the C.ioconda, failed
to grasp the various moods of this
strange woman, and Miss Lamson's
powerful voice, which has not been
used much of late, was not under suf
ficient control. The contrast between
the quiet -method of Miss Crawfey and
Miss Lamson's method -was too great
to show either in the best light.
Absence of Music Regrettable
Little Bobe Daniels, who is without
a doubt the most clever child actress
of her years in this part of the coun
try, was a beautiful and natural Beata.
Hobart Bosworth, formerly with Mrs.
Fiske, essayed the role of Coßmio
Dalbo, and Mr. Bosworth is a man with
a quiet force of manner and voice well
suited to the part.
Fanchon Kverhart and "William
Yeranee rounded out the cast, anrl both
gave intelligent interpretations of their
roles.
A regrettable feature was the ab
penee of music. This mny be very well
for one of Ibsen's plays, but one can
hardly see the reason for absence of
music from D'Annunzio's work.

PLAN OF BURGLAR
TOLD IN CONFESSION
HOUSES ROBBED WHEN NO ONE
IS AT HOME
Robber Who Was Captured by the
Detectives Several Days Ago
Tells of His Operations and Is
Held for Trial
C, L. Jones, who in company with
Annie Smith was arrested on July 12
by detectives, yesterday was held fop
trial in the superior courts on a charge
of burglnry under $1500 bonds by Police
Judge Chambers.
Jones confessed tn tho detectives that
he robbed the home of Mrs. A. H. Har
desty, 125 North Pritchard street, on
the afternoon of July 3. All of the
stolen property was recovered. Part of
It was found in a pawnshop, some of
It on Jores and the remainder was
found in his room.
Other property also was found In
Jones' room which Is believed to have
been stolen by him. Some of it was
identified a. belonging to A. I. Hunt.
275 South Fair Oaks avenue, and to
H. Russell, 722 East Washington street,
Pasadena.
When arrested Jones claimed that he
had purchased all of the goods found
upon him from another man whom he
met every night at S o'clock. He after
wards confessed that his plan was to
go to a house when he knew the occu
pants were not at home.
At the time the woman was arrested
It was thourht that she worked with
the man os an accomplice, but the de
tectives have not been able to make
any case against her, but she will
probably be prosecuted for living with
Jones.
AUBLE REPORTS
LAW VIOLATIONS
Police Chief Unable So Far to Induce
Commission to Close Saloons
Where Sunday Act Is
Ignored
Chief Auble rendered his report to the
police commission last evening on the
so-called restaurants he had investi
gated with Captain Broadhead last Sun
day.
In this report the chief declares that
he and Captain Broadhead visited ten
or twelve restaurants holding restaur
ant liquor licenses, and that, in some of
them he found small dishes of beef
stew or a plate of sausages was being
consumed with the large quantities of
beer sold, but that in some instances no
food of any kind was taken with the
beer, and that in not more than one or
two cases were bona (ide meals, as is
required by the ordinance, being sold.
Chairman James moved that the re
port be placed on file nnd that when the
chief had secured enough evidence to
warrant a conviction he proceed to
make arrests.
The police commission as a rule takes
no cognizance of whether an officer has
secured enough evidence to convict a
violator of the liquor laws in the courts
or not.
The commission has practically su
preme control of liquor licenses of all
kinds, and in many instances has taken
action in revoking licenses that have
not been sustained by the courts.
"If the police commission so desired
it could revoke the licenses of all the
restaurants holding such a privilege on
the chief's report," said a lawyer who
was near.
Not only has the commission wide
latitude in these cases, but Just before
James made his motion Captain Broad
head, in another case before the com
missl merss, had testified that before
the prosecuting attorney will bring suit
for selling liquor illegally, the com
plaining witness must have twice and
on different days purchased these intox
icant f. ar^BH
"To follov/ out the instructions of th«
commission the chief and Captain
Rr<. .dhead would have to go over the
same ground again in order to get evi
dence enough to induce the prosecuting
attorney to bring action," an old-time
official remarked.
The question was left undecided last
night.
MORE PAY IS ASKED
FOR POLICE CAPTAINS
CHIEF AUBLE PLANS FOR A
POSSIBILITY
On His Recommendation the Police
Commission Votes in Favor of
Increasing Salaries of Captains
$50 a Month
The police commission last evening
voted to ask the city council to raise
tho salaries of police captulns from
JliiO ii month to $200. This was done on
the recommondation of Chief Aublo,
who recently returned from tho cast
and who told the board thut every

In having the salaries of tho police
captains riiised Chief .Auble Is provid

he may have to go back to a captaincy
himself. He was captain of police mi
der the civil service when appointed

CITY TO BUILD
OUTFALL SEWER
CONTRACTORS MUST FORFEIT
$100,000 BOND
Board of Public Works Decides to
Take Action Leading to
Completion of Im
provement
"The board has received no notice
from the contractors that they intend
to abandon their contract, but we know
they have quit work on the outfall
sewer.
"We will be guided In our actions by
the advice of the city attorney. The
people may be assured that the sewer
will be built and we have, in no way
altered our determination to cause it
to be completed on the original plans
as a gravity sewer, and to hold the
contractors and their sureties to tho
full measure of liability under their
contracts."
Late yesterday evening President An
derson of the board of public works,
on the advice of the city attorney, gave
out the above as a FPnii-oftlclal state
ment of the position of the city on the
outfall sewer question. This was the.
first statement having any official au
thority given out during the day and
even this little was not allowed to drib
ble through the fingers of the board
until many consultations with the city
attorney and Mayor McAleer.
In this statement the board gives pos
itive assurance that the outfall Fewer
will be constructed and that the halt
million dollars Los Angeles property
owners have already sunk in the bis
conduit will not be wasted. Just how
the work is to be finished has not been
stated, and D. K. Edwards, a member
of the board, yesterday acknowledged
that the board had not yet made up its
mind which of the two courses open to
it would be followed.
Bond Can Be Collected
The board now is chiefly engrossed
in the legal phases of tho question.
Contractors Stanabury and Powell are
under bonds of $100,000 to perform the
work according to contract, and if it
Is proved that they have finally aban
doned the contract of constructing the
sower this $100,000 will bo collected.
Long litigation is expected before this
money can be turned Into the city's
coffers, but the city attorney has no
doubt that every cent of it can be
collected. In all about five-sixths of
the conduit has bepn completed and for
this Stansbury & Powell have received
J. 110,000. The contract price for tho
entire tunnel was $565,000. Of this
amount the city has held back 25 per
cent, or $112,000, under the terms of
the contract, to be paid when the en
tire Job was completed and accepted.
In all the city holds $225,000 of the
contract price which hns not been paid
the contractors and the $100,000 bond
money. With $325,000 the board has
more than half thf entire contract
price of tho sewer and with but one
half of the conduit to complete.
The board, however, cannot under
stand why it has not been notified by
the contra tors that tho contract has
been thrown up.
"Of course, we know to a moral
certainty that such is the case," paid
City Attorney Mathews yesterday, "al
though we have so far had no official
notification. We are equally certain
that the sewer will be completed and
that the public has no cause for alarm."
Asks the Reason Why
In order to learn officially that tho
contract had been given up by Stans
hury & Powell, City Engineer Stafford
yesterday sent the following letter to
the contractors:
"In reference to the outfall sewer, I
observe that since. July 15 there has
been a total suspension of work on the
sewer and it Is rumored that you have
abandoned the samo and do not pro
pose to carry out the contract between
the city and yourself for the construc
tion of said sewer.
"Since there does not appear to be
any reason or cause for your aban
donment of tho work, I wish to Inquire
whether you have, In fac(, abandoned
the same, and if so, why you abandoned
It. If, however, you propose to resume
work and to complete the sewer, I beg
to be informed when work on the same
will begin."
The board of public works hag two
methods of completing this contract.
It can either let a contract for the
uncompleted portion of the work and
charge the amount to tho contractors
or do it by day lubor and still charge
the cost to the contractors.
One of these methods. It is sain, surely
will be followed and the outfall sewer
will be built.

WIFE A VIRAGO
IS HIS CLAIM
HUSBAND RELATES TALE OF
rvIARITAL WOE
Sixteen Years of Persecution, Dur
ing Which He Alleges All
Manner of Unwlfely
Actions
Aftpr sixteen ye..rs of marrlpd llfp,
filled with Inciflents melodramatic, find
which if staged nt the Grand would
put to shame all the popular "shock
ers" that ever hold the boards there,
H. AY. Bailey brought his troubles be
fore Judge Trask of the superior court
yestprday. Judge Trask refused to
grant the interlocutory decree of di
vorce pending the introduction of fur
ther evidence Hiid possibly the placing
on the stand of the defendant, Minnie G.
Bailey.
Bailey's experience with his wife be
gan on the eve of their marriage, No
vember 20, ]8S!», in La Cropse, Wits. In
! I that time (he marriage was not
consummated, according to the testi
mony of Bailey. Instead, the wife re
sorted to pet'-y acts -which Bailey
claimed annoyed him extremely.
At intervals of one month those an
noyancf : anrl petty arts occurred, ac
cording tn Bailey, who paid thnt they
approached a grand climax last Febru
ary, when Mrs. Bailey pursued her hus
band with nn ax, anrl the following
Sunday slip stave vent to her wrath
publicly In a church in r congregation
of ppvoral hundred persons.
Bailey, soon after ho married the
woman, commenced to lopo much sleep,
he told thp court yesterday. This, he
said, was due to Mrs. Bailey's fondness
; for scrp.itnlng In trie mlddln of the
nißht and pulliiiK Bailey's hr.ir, ac
companied by loud and unusual talk
ing. "Job whs a bark number when It
came to an exhibition of patience,"
sntd Bailey, Finally, tho plaintiff was
obliged to ocrupy a bedroom by him
self, while Mrs. Bailey occupied a room
in another part of the house.
In March, 1001, durinpr one of her al
lowed monthly attackr, upon her hus
band, Mrs. Bailey seized a bottle of Ink
and hurled it with great violence
nprainst the haggard features of Bailey.
FollowlnK thnt attack she struck him
on the head with a golf club, and she
followed this up with an attack with
an umbrella, which was closely fol
lowed hy a stiff right with a cane, and
finally she twirled a stove lifter with
unerring aim at Bailey. All of these
implements of warfare were itemized in
the complaint.
His Own Chambermaid
Close upon the heels of this Fiege of
attacks Mrs. Bailey decided thnt her
husband could be his own chamber
maid, and subsequently the more stren
uous of household duties were left to
Bailey. From 1002 through 1903 nnd
until May, 1304, Bailey said he was the
chambermaid of the Bnlley residence.
One year before Bailey's occupation!
a.< chambermaid reached a close, Mrs.
Bailey, according to the testimony of
the plaintiff, charged on Bailey with a
butcher knife, tore off his necktie,
choked him and became the aggressor
in a mi::up that is beyond description.
During September, October and No
vember of 1004 Mrs. Bailey is said to
have tried i.nother tack and threatened
to commit suicide. On several occasions
she pretended she was ill, the result of
having swallowed poison. Incidentally,
the complaint states Mrs. Bailey re
marked that she would submit to a, phy
sician's treatment provided Bailey
would obey Mrs. Bailey in all matters
thereafter.
In June, 1004, Bailey sustained in
juries in an nocident that compelled
him to remain in a hospital for several
days. While In the hospital Mrs. Bailey
visited him several times and "in
formed" him his accident was due
wholly to the fact that he refused to
obey her in all matters and that it was
intended as a punishment. ,
Refuge on Street Cars
In July, 1004, shortly nfter Bailey
left the hospital, he claims Mrs. Bailey
becams bo volatile that he wan obliged
to spend his days in riding the street
cars 1. 1 order to iv old her wrath. When
he ran out of car fare he would walk
the streets until late at night rather
than spend his evenings at home, dcvls
1«k means to nvold the alleged spon
tam us attacks of Mrs. Bailey.
In October, 1004, during that part of
the month which preceded tho belicose
stages of Mrs. Bailey Bailey and his
wifei went for a stroll. The complaint
flays that Hie woman suddenly clapped
him in the face publicly.
"What happened between October, 1904,
and February, 1006, Is not mentioned in
tho complaint. In the latter month the
attack on his character was made in the
ohureh In the midst of Boveral hundred
church members. Mm. Bailey at that
time, Ktntes tho complaint, exerted all
her vocal powers nnd (.-routed pande
monium in the Sabbath nt)sembly.
"What will be done with the case Is
not known. Judge 'I'rank asked several
pertinent (mentions of the vitness yes
terday, and jifter listening to tho
strange testimony of both Xallcy and
his father he continued the caso pond-
Ing the introduction of further testi
mony. Judge 'frank xuggested that i.n
effort be nmde to find Mrs. Ualley and
hear her side of the ntory.

OWENS RIVER PROJECT IS
CONSIDERED
Appointment of Board of Three Ex.
pert Engineers Held In
Abeyance by Water
Board
No notion was taken hy the water
board yesterday on tho question of ap
pointing n board of three expert engi
neers to puss upon the plans for the
Owens fiver project, »
Following the regular mooting, Ihe
board hold a nhort executive session,
and upon the 1 adjournment the mem
bers Hi\ltl that the appointment of en
glnoors was still In nbcyanco. It is
understood, however, thnt negotiations
nro progressing satisfactorily nnd thnt
there Is n prospect that a selection
will bo mndo' ■within the next few
days.
Tho only notion bearing on the
Owons river project was the pncKage
of the following resolution:
"That it Is the sense of the board of
water commissioners that J. B. Lip*
1 Incott should be employed at a salary
of $6000 per nnnuni by the city us as
sistant engineer on the Owens river
project, nnd it is so recommended to
the board of public works."
Tho question of stopping the pumps
In tho Sun Fernando valley^vns not
formally discussed by the commis
sioners. Superintendent Mulhoilnnd
paid that no action in thnt direction
would be recommended by him unless
in bis opinion It became absolutely
necessary, but If it was found that
the reservoirs were becoming so low ns
to placo the city of Los Angeles in
danger the order to shut down the
pumps would be issued In nccordance
with the court decision rende: d Eev
eral months ngo.
Nearinq the Danger Line
According to Mr. Mulholland, the
wnter level Is considerably lower now
than It whs at this time last year. Tho
rnnehors, he says, are drawing from
reserves stored In the gravel basin,
nnd tho effect of this will be felt later
tn tho year. Tho river Is entirely riri.'d
up now nt the narrows, nnd last week
water In one of tho reservoirs was
drawn upon. The former level has
since been restored, but Mr. Hulhol
land says that a protracted period of
warm weather probably would bring
about serious conditions.
"The trouble simply is due to a con
tinued rapid growth of population
without a corresponding Increase in fue
supply of water," said Mr. Mulhol
land. "Present conditions are well Il
lustrated by n comparison of figures
showing the amount of water used now
and four years ago. Los Angeles now
is using IRO gallons of water a day per
capita, whereas in 1002 the per capita
ufp was 302 gallons a day. Conse
quently, with tho same population
four years ago that wo have now we
would have had almost twice as
much water 1 . The supply has been
steadily decreasing, nnd but for the
pteps taken by the board to prevent
the waste of water the city would be
experiencing an actual famine now.
Less Water Is Wasted
"Up to within a year or two ago an
enormous amount of water was wasted,
hut the installation of meters has put a
stop to much of this. So far about 13,
000 meters have been pat in, and we are
now Installing them at the rate of
about 150 a" month. In this way we
are reducing to a minimum the amount
of water that Is wasted."
Mr. Mulholland says that in spite of
the hot weather tho city has been
holding Its own with respect to the
water supply ever since last Friday,
and he is hoping that the necessity for
stopping the pumps in the San Fer
nando valley yet may be averted.
There are about 100 of these pumps,
and the stopping of them at this time
would bring about a serious state of
affairs. There are 600 acres of berries
in tho valley, besides a large acreage
of alfalfa, and without water from
their present source of supply these
crops would bo ruined. Superintendent
Mulholland recognizees this fact fully,
but he takes the position that, the
wnter belongs to the city, that' the
ranchers knew what they were facing
In view of the decision of the courts,
in the water cases, and that the city of
Los Angeles must be the first consid
eration of the water board. He points
out that a water famine in this city
would result in a much greater hard
ship than would the stopping of the
pumps in the San Fernando valley.
FACES DEATH TO SAVE
FELLOW WORKMAN
LOS ANGELES MAN BECOMES A
HERO
At a Critical Moment He Performs an
Act to Protect an Employe and
Sustains Painful Injuries— Warned
Against Overhead Wires
J. W. Wilson, a house moving con
tractor, barely escaped denth yesterday
morning while trying to save William
Bowman, whom he had recently em
ployed, from being injured.
Wilson was caught by a wire while
he was moving a house at the corner
of Second street and Beaudry avenue
and thrown twenty feet to the ground.
He was taken to the receiving hospital,
where it was found that his right leg
was Injured and that his spine and
wrists wore sprained.
The two men wore working on the
top of the house and Bowman had been
warned to look out for overhead wires.
Wilson saw that a heavy wire had
caught a front corner and that possi
bly it would strike Bowman, who had
carelessly turned his back while re
moving a loose piece of lumber.
Wilson called to the driver to stop
and then he grabbed Bowman, throw-
Ing him back. At that Instant the wire
slipped from the corner of the house,
Etriklng Wllßon in tho breast and
throwing him from the house.
