NEEDS REPARIS REINFORCEMENT OF FRONT WALL NECESSARY School Beard Authorizes Work to Be Dona Before Opening of School fteaion, Set for Septem ber 17 Members of the school board yester day anxiously inquired whether a. por tion 1 of the contract price of the Poly tecnlc high school had been retained. According to tho board's building ex pert the front wall of the structure will have to be strengthened In some man ner nnd bands must be placed about the smokestack. •• • ■' In addition to these repairs, which have been suggested hy Building In spector Backus, there must be erected two fire escapes. On motion of Inspector Frank the building committee was authorized to at once have these repairs made. In order ■ that the building be In proper condition for the opening of the school September 17, which date has been do elded upon for the beginning of the next term. ■ . Says It Is Not Serious At the conclusion of the meeting In spector Frank, wiio Is a member of the building committee, said to The Herald: "The conditions at the Polytechnic high school are not at all serious, and I believe that with the repairs con templated the building will be perfect ly safe. The contractor, Mr. Engstrom, told me a. few days ago that It would be necessary on account of the. settling of the ground to anchor the front wall and to reinforce the smokestack, and that-he would stand any reasonable exr pense. "■ ' . .■■■ "He could not be compelled to do this, as he has received the full contract, price. The building was erected under the old law by the city council, It was accepted by that body and afterward by the boa.Td of education. Under the present law the construction of school buildings Is entirely in the hands of the board, which now has under way eighteen new buildings. "The growth of Los Angeles I£*tnost remarkable, and it is keeping the board busy to supply new districts with school facilities and to prevent, the overcrowding of the older districts." New Work Is Planned Considerable new work was author ized , by the board yesterday by the adoption of the following report of the committee on buildings: • . "That one temporary building be erected for a sloyd room and another for. a cooking room at the Fourteenth street school. "That. 75 feet on the Ascot street side of the Vernon avenue school grounds be- fenced off from the rest by palisade fencing, and that/a temporary building be -moved there and put In order for use as a special ungraded school. . "That one of the .rooms of the So la no avenue school building be fitted up for use as a special ungraded school. "That the building committee he au thorized to award the contract for the Loreto street school building. • -. - . . VThat^the building committee,be*ln structed to award contracts for cement work at schools advertised for. ."That the building committee be au thorized to purchase 90 feet of land adjoining the site of the Loreto street school, upon. such terms as it may be able to make with the owner thereof, »nd to draw on the funds for the pay ment for same. "That we have Instructed the fore man of schoo) buildings and grounds to confer with J. J. Backus, chief inspec tor of. buildings, in regard to tire es capes'and chimney at the Polytechnic high, school. "That a cesspool, be put in at the Thirty-ninth street school." Library Knot Is Untied The. board authorized the suggested separation of the school library from that of .the city' library. The books belonging to the city schools are to bo placed in the Grand avenue school building, and the superintendent of schools has been directed to prepare lists of titles of books suitable for use in the schools, to be purchased with the, library fund of the board of edu cation. The board authorized the em ployment of a librarlaji for the pub lic'school library at 9 salary not to exceed $70 per month. ■ A report was adopted recommending the acceptance of tho offer of the child study" circle of the Thirty-fifth avenue school, to place In tho grounds of that p.chool athletic apparatus consisting of swings, see-saws, maypole, etc. The board adopted the report of the purchasing committee, recommending contracts be made for various supplies for the ensuing fiscal year with the fol lowing firms: J. W. Hellman, H. Jevno company, F. W. Braun company, Jones bookstore, Parker & Stone, p. Lazarus &' Co., A. Zellerbach & Sons, C. F. "Weber & Co. and'Stoll & Taylor. GOAT SPOILS PRAYER SERVICE Baptists and Oddfellows Get In a Sorry Mix Through Services and '? V ■ Initiation Special to The Herald. . RED BANK. N. J., Aug. 20.-The col ored Odd Fellows meet in a room in th>-' second story and the Pilgrim Bap tists, occupy the first floor of a build ing on Pearl street. The Odd Fellows were Initiating a candidate for mem bership last evening, . while the Bap tists' held a prayer meeting. The lodge "goat" became frisky, and such ■ a hubbub was raised that the worship was seriously interfered with. The prayer meeting adjourned In Indigna tion, as the building fairly rocked and mysterious hoots and uncanny sounds filtered through the ceiling. ' The ■ outraged Pilgrims 'trooped to th 6 second floor and burst into the sa cred, precincts, actually viewing with unhallowed eyes the perspiring candl-' date,, blindfolded and still on the "g6at," The Odd Fellows abandoned the; f'eir^mony. and . led by Rev. John liamlin, pastor of Calvary Baptist church (colored), and William Jordan, attacked 'the Invaders. In the general scrimmage men were picked up by the neck and heels and dropped down staids and out of the windows. The sisters of the church actively partici pated In the pleasant Occasion. Finally, Home one. yelled: . "Police!" Chief Lewis suddenly appeared; subdued the belligerents and arrested Hamlin and Jordan.' ' ' ' ' . . . The R«v. T. F. Kenner of the Pilgrim Baptist church made complaint against the prisoners,' saying they struck his wife and bruised her. Justice Sickles fined them IS eacih, after which Humlln and Jordan shook hands with the Rev. Fenner and all hands smoked the pipe of peace.' The present good feeling Is explained by the fact that the Odd Fel low* have sworn to secrecy and ad mitted to membership all the Pilgrims who attended "the blowout," REPUBLICAN BOSS GETS MACHINE IN CONVENTION TRIM PARKER'S OILY SMILE IS LUBRICATOR First Cornetist of Republican Band Wagon Believes All Will Be Sweet Harmony With Little Friendly Discords to Relieve Monotpny ,v • and He Ought to Know Carefully hoxed and with nil nf Its .various parts hurnlshPrl In an artistic manner, the Republican mnehlne was shipped to Venice yesterday. Under the supervision of Engineer Parker, assisted by Fireman Leeds and Oiler Petermlchael. the machine last night was set up In tho HUdltorlum, and today It will begin the work of grinding out respective nnd Irrespective of the wishes of the mam of Republican vot ers, nominees for the thirty-nine coun ty offices. Engineer Parker is remaining watch ful to the last over the workings of the machine, and If there should slip an occasional cos: th« master hand at the throttle will be greatly surprised. The Boss Is Confident Confidence was written In every line of Parker's smiling countenance yester day as he superintended the packing of the various parts of the machine and doled out free tickets to the faithful, and his utterances, while guarded, as usual. Indicated n knowledge that his machine would work to perfection. "We are going to have a very har monious convention," said Mr. Parker with a smile, and then he added, with a twinkle In his eye: "Of course, there will be a few fights, but they will be of the friendly order — nothing serious: nothing serious. "Do I know who Is going to be nom inated?" he repeated in reply to the very leading question. "Well," and he smiled serenely, "I imagine that I have a pretty good Idea: but, then, we can't always tell, you know. However, It will all end In a very harmonious man ner," he added, reassuringly. • .",\ Lee for Chairman "Bradner W. Lee undoubtedly will be chosen chairman of the convention," continued Mr. Parker. "He is well qualified for the position, and his long and faithful services to the party en title him to the honor If he desires it, and I understand he does. "As to the Australian ballot, system, I believe it will be adopted. At least, I have heard of no opposition from any quarter. Objection might develop In the convention, which must decide the question. However, I believe that it will go through. JJ" • "Who will be nominated for sheriff?" was the last question put to Mr. Par ker, but with the certainty that the reply would be evasive. But evasive ness does not begin to express the na ture of the response. : • ' "I have not kept In close touch with the contest for* sheriff," said Mr. Par ker, and he made no attempt to hide a very broad smile. VBut we are going to have a very harmonious convention," he again repeated, as he boarded the car, and with his machine started for Venice. " ? . . -.., Some Bitter Fights Are On Mr. Parker's assurance that "there will be a few fights, but they will be of the friendly order." Is not borne out by facts, at least as regards the nature of the contests. However, it Is safe to say that, no matter how bitter these fights will be, they, will end In accordance with the desires of the machine. To accomplish its end and at the same time bring about a show of harmony, it -may. be^necessary for the machine to make a few trades, but these will be of an unimportant character, and the so-called harmony will ■be brotight about by the free use of the party lash, used gently or vigorously, as oc casion requires. ToPrevent Open Fights As a check to the bitterness which has been displayed by various candi dates to prevent open fights on the floor of the convention and to enable the machine to make trades unknown to the men whom it is willing to sacri fice In the interests °f "harmony," the Australian system of balloting will be adopted. There Is not the shadow of a doubt that the plan will be carried by the convention, because It Is the plan of the machine, and the machine will con trol the convention to that extent, at least, and thereafter everything will come easy for the men who furnish the music. , ■. To some this music will be as a'joy ful wedding march, but to others It will be ,a dirge that will sound the death knell to political ambitions. The first ballot or two, it Is confident ly expected, will decide the lesser con tests and dispose of the walk-overs, and clear the arena for the main events. Then the plums will be apportioned ac cording to program, and the men mark ed for slaughter In the interest of har mony will feel the knife, but they will not know the wielder. Two Principal Contests The statement by Mr. Parker that he has not kept In very close touch wlih the shrievalty contest Is all the more amusing when it is considered that this Is regarded as the biggest plum on the county political tree. Next In order, as far as the machine Is concerned, although It does not ap pear on the surface, Is that of coroner. One of the wise ones In the political game declared yesterday that right here.wac where there was being done the greatest amount of scheming, and that the nomination of one office would affect that of the other. It was declared with posltlveness that the machine even would go so far as to sacrifice Its candidates for sheriff In order to make certain of its choice for coroner. If this Is the case, and a bet by Joe Murphy of even money that Hammel will not.be named for sheriff, would ap pear to he confirmatory, it would mea,o the nomination of John Burr, the "Hoot, mon" of San Fernando, to suc ceed Sheriff White, and the nomination of Coroner Trout to succeed himself. They See the Handwriting That a number of the contestants have seen the handwriting on the wall Is evidenced by the quiet manner in which some of them are lying down by formally withdrawing or hy declaring their. Intention of running Independent ly. White and Werdln are said to be out of the running as completely as though they had never been In It, and Pritch ard of Santa Monica Is reported to have been convinced of the uselensness of continuing the fight against the In evitable. This leaves Hammel and Burr to finish the race, with the chances in favor of the latter If Trout la to re ceive a renomlnatlon. That something like this la not only LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 21, 1906. possible but probable Is the fact that Dr. K. O. Sawyer, considered one of the leading candidate* for coroner, yes terday announced his withdrawal from the contest and announced himself an Independent candidate. Isues a Statement The doctor confided his Intentions to the press In the following signed state ment: "Having given the matter thorough consideration, I have decided that I prefer to go before the people of Los Angeles county as an Independent can didate for the office of coroner. "I am making a campaign on the platform of a 'square deal for both the living and the dead.' and am absolutely sure that this platform would not have a chance before the convention that Is to be held at Venice, "All my life has been spent in the ranks of the Republican party, where I have been a faithful worker, but I do not uphold the principles of the machine politician." Dr.*"J. M. Dunsmoor has been sup posed to be the slate candidate for cor oner, bub It was strongly hinted in cer tain quarters yesterday that his name merely was brought forward to throw off the scent those who were after the scalp of' Coroner Trout. In the meantime Dr. Trout is. keep- Ing very quiet, and the friends of Dr. Lanterman were not making any claims yesterday. •..'..- Lamb Marked for Slaughter "You can say with the greatest em phasis that I am still In the race and will win," declared Dr. W. A. Lamb yesterday, In the face of the oft-re peated assertion that the machine, under no circumstances, would consent to his nomination as supervisor of the Third district. Dr. Lamb is given credit for having made It Impossible to renomtnate Su pervisor Graham, and for this work the machine is said to be determined to make an example of Dr. Lamb for his temerity. As a result, unless the unexpected happens, S. T. Eldrldge will receive the nomination, which will give Dr.. Lamb an opportunity of carrying out his re ported Intention of making an Inde pendent fight for the position. Withdraw From the Race In addition to Dr. Sawyer, the with drawal of three other candidates for various positions was announced yes terday. City Tax Collector E. B. Johnson, who wanted the similar position with the county, concluded to step aside in favor of Mr. Welch and try again for the position of city tax collector. This will give Welch the nomination, although John H. Oish Is still In the race. .. . . U ' Henry Sherer,' formerly deputy coun ty clerk, announced his withdrawal for the nomination for county clerk, which means . the renomlnation with out a struggle of Mr. Keyes. Sherer's step Is said to be due to the fact that Keyes was preparing to go after the scalp of Evan Lewis, present city as sessor, because Lewis and his brother Dave were active in Sherer's candi dacy. Heartwell for Treasurer The withdrawal of Mark Jones, also reported yesterday, simplifies- the con test for treasurer and insures the nom ination of „ Charles L. Heartwell of Long Beach, although his nomination generally was conceded ever since his candidacy was announced. John M. Hunt and Robert Wlrsch lng are still in the race and It Is said that they will fight to the end, but the edict has gone forth that Heartwell is the man. C. L. Heartwell will have no opposi tion for county assessor, and I. B. No ble and Charles L. Logan are .on the same eacy street as regards the nomi nations for surveyor and recorder, re spectively, while Mark Keppel is con ceded the nomination for superinten dent of schools. Two Sharp Fights City Auditor Sohwaebe declares that he will get the nomination, for county auditor, the position now held by Her bert G. Dow. but the machine says that Dow must be renominated. ' Schwaebe is backed by "the bunch," and If he wins he must display more strength than he Is given credit .of possessing. In the meantime the ma chine men are standing pat. Another man backed by "the bunch" is Frank Bryson of Los Angeles against W. H. Wlckersham of San Pedro, the machine candidate for public admin istrator. On the surface both lights are bit ter, with the chances largely in favor of the machine i candidates unless ' a trade on the quiet is effected, which does not seerri probable. For township Justices, H. A. Pierce and William H. Young are conceded the nomination: for city Justices, H. Hi Rose. William Frederlckson and Joseph Chambers, and for constables, L. C. Cleveland and J. H. De la Monte. W. P. James. Walter Bordwejl, J. C. Rives, G. A. Glbbs and Charles Mon roe, It Is thought, will be nominated on the first ballot for judges of the superior court. • while C. C. Bowen, Oeonre H. Hutton and Fred W. Houser are fighting for the sixth place. ■ ; * Legislative, Ticket On the eve of the convention the outlook is for the nomination of the following for senators and assembly men: State senators— Thirty-fourth dis trict, W.

Strangers Fill Porches Strange faces appear on the porches of the cottages, the air is full of noise, everybody's in a hurry and the old resi dent is lost in the shuffle. The generat arrangements are being looked after by the Santa Monica Bay Republican club, which organization with the co-opera tion of the Abbot Kinney company and Venice merchants, has apparently left nothing undone that might facilitate the work of the convention.

It is on the arrival of the delegates that one can not help but notice and wonder how It happens that the fellows with waist measurements of seventy inches and over, with few exceptions, find a hand bag, about large enough to hold an extra collar and a pair of socks, plenty big enough for their needs, while the 110-pound man can't seem to get along with less than one trunk for each run ning foot of his height.

GALWAY TUNE RILES I GIRL She Tells Judge She Couldn't "Abide" It, So Throws, Bowl at Man's Head Special to The Herald. BOSTON, Aug. 20.-Klttie O'Brien of 13 Billerica street was before Judge Forsalth of the municipal criminal court to answer to the charge of as sault upon Patrick Cummings of the same address, who claims that on the 20th Inst. the defendant threw a bowl at him with intent to injure him. Kit tle does not deny the allegation, but claims that she did it in self-defense. Patrick, who is a Janitor at 83 Dev onshire street, told the court that when he was coming down stairs from his flat at the top of the building Kittie put her knee against the front door and would not let him out. He took hold of her, "quite gentle like," and pushed her away from the door, where upon she, being In a violent rage, slezed a bowl and hurled it at Patrick as he was going out of the door. The bowl missed Its mark when Patrick dodged, but it hit a man who happened along opportunely In the neck. Kittle O'Brien brought a varied col lection of witnesses to prove her side of the case. She thought that Cummings, because he lived on the top floor, thought her beneath him socially. "About noon, your honor, he came down stairs singing 'All the Way From Galway," a tune that no Cork woman can abide, and swinging a billet of wood In his hand. It was enough to make a saint mad, singing the tune, but then he battered on the door with the billet of wood and hollered, 'Come out, Kitty of Cork.' I stuck my head out of the door, your honor, and he struck me over the eye (here Kittle exhibited to the court a discolored optic), and he pulled my hair and knocked me down and beat me until he was put out by one of the lodgers, who came in the nick of time. It was when I was get ting up off the floor that I threw the bowl at him— and I wish It had hit him, too, for It's no good he is, your honor." Several witnesses corroborated Mrs. O'Brien's testimony and one young man testified that he had thrown Patrick from the room. Judge Forsalth thought that It w«n clearly shown that the throwing of the bowl was a perfectly natural act. done In sel'-defense, ' and dismissed the charge on the condition that there should be no further trouble at 13 Billerica street. WON'T LICK HUBBY ANY MORE Speclal to The Herald. WILKESBARRB, Pa., Aug. 20.— Mrs. Henry Disken was arraigned before Mayor Kirkendall today, charged with beating her husband.

A. Thurston, General Agent Mm y&b. Chicago-Union Pacific and jfiiWHml3]t FRIGHTENED BY FLYPAPER It Sticks to the Tabbies and They Cause a Commotion in Women's Ward Special to The Herald. CINCINNATI, Aug. 20.— For a time Thursday night It was believed that a. preconcerted attempt had been made by the women Inmates of the county Jail to make their escape. The first in timation was screams and the barking of the eight fox terriers belonging to Matron S. P. Falconer. This was fol lowed by sounds as of a fierce struggle going on in the interior of the women's department, and resulted In Jailer Kushman, Deputy Jailer Belter and half a dozen guards rushing into that part of the building. . There a state of chaos was found. Matron . Fair oner and her niece were rushing about the rooms, now down on their knees and again climbing upon chairs to reach the top of articles of furniture, evidently Intent upon catch ing something which was making every effort to elude their grasp. A half dozen female prisoners were as sisting them. Ranged about the room were the eight fox terriers, while seven cats occupied various positions upon the furniture, their backs bowed almost double and their tails swollen larger than their bodies. Suddenly the hubbub subsided and Matron Falconer and two of the others appeared with what appeared to be three struggling bundles of paper In their arms. ■ Investigation i disclosed that the bundles contained three cats, and that their outer wrappings were common, ordinary, sticky fly paper. Then Mrs. Falconer made explanation. She stated that as the women's depart ment Is not provided with fly screens she had been using' fly paper, and had placed it around the room, and espe cially upon the window sills. She was sitting reading, while her niece was playing the piano, when suddenly something white and ghostly bounded from the window and dashed around the room, under the refrigerator, then under the cots and beds, upon the chiffoniers and back again to the floor to take refuge under some article 'of furniture.- The first object was followed Imme 3 dlately by another and another. The dogs began barking and rushing about, adding to the turmoil, and seven tab bies sought high places where . they erected their backs and emitted ear plerclng caterwauls that had been mis taken for screams. The strange ob jects proved to be three of the cats that had lain down upon the fly paper on the window sills and it had stuck to them. They rolled over and it stuck tighter; then they started to run and the melee, was on. One .of, 'the cats sprang from the back^of one terrier to those of the others, and this added 'to the confusion.
