OFFERS CITY A
MASTER OF HIS ART AWAITS
Man Capable cf Turning Out Beautiful
Porcelains In Distinctive Califor
nia Designs Would Remain
In Loa Angeles
To Up or not to he. Just six small
words, yet they mean a world foi* ono
limn in Los A)iR«-lfs— the satisfaction of
a life's ambition niul the making of
fallfnrnln, especially Los Angeles,
famous In a Hire hitherto unatteinptecl.
Alpxnr.tlcr Wllllnm Kobertfloii, under
whoso hands. Hay takes Its shape in
many useful an<\ ornamental patterns,
is still experimenting with the Cali
fornia clays In his ltttlo workshop at
tho Los Angeles Pressed Urlek com
pany's yards, Dato ami Alhambra
streets. Over four months ngo Mr.
KobertHon cjnme to I.ios Angele*, soon
after the northern disaster, and all
' those weary days ho hns experimented.
Ho lins prepared the clay, straining it
' through a selve— alwnya by hand, alien
he has dried this clay, and after fash
ioning It has baked It— all under the
greatest of difficulties. For the kilns
that are at his disposal arcs for bricks,
which are kept heated from ono to three
weeks, while for .his fine pottery thirty
hours are sufficient.
Mr. Robertson lias taken an entirely
new view of tho clay deposits near this
city, «nd would, but for the lack of tho
nsfcesnary funds, establish a pottery
wherein California clays would be
utilized, adorned with California de
signs, for California homes.
Distinctly California Ware
All the flower pots, jardlnlers, fancy
vases and the countless things for
which clay can be utilized are all now
Imported or made of Imported clay — al
ways that which cannot be used in its
Japanese clay is mado up in this
country with Japanese dragons, all for
eign and all borrowed. But this worker
of the art of tho ancient Egyptians
would alter all this. He would take
California clay, use California deslfens,
ilowers, animals and what not, and
make California souvenirs. He would
utilize local material and labor, both
skilled and unskilled, and would make
of Los Angeles a place wheroln the
finest pottery could be found.
I Not only pottery, for he lias found a
clay adapted to finer uses, and porcle
lain wares could be manufactured.
The clay around Santa Monica Is
truly wonderful, in that after burning
it will hold acids, and withal makes a
beautiful terra cotta coloring, varying
with the degree of heat used In tho
burning. The lighter clay from Elsl
nore Is well adipted to glazing, and
, Mr. Robertson haa several truly line
examples of this In his rude workshop.
AVhon ono but stops to think of .the
amount of such wares used here In our
own city, aside from the great number
of products that could easily and
cheaply be manufactured for the tourist
trade It seems tri ly wonderful that a
man of Mr. Robertson's fame should
have stayed in such a progressive city
over four months and no one to-put up
the paltry sum that would be necessary
to start an establishment that would
become a paying concern as surely as
the night follows the day.
Is a Tireless Worker
Putting aside tho artistic phase of
this, one of the most interesting indus
tries that the world has ever produced.
It Is one of the most necessary, for even
the most unlearned must have dishes,
pitchers and various household articles.
Those who love the beautiful— and who
does not?— crave beautiful designs for
their flower pots and the urns that hold
flowering plants in the yards. And here
in California, under the ever sunny
skies, these flowering plants on porches
and in gardens have become almost a
feature of the climate. And these could
be manufactured right at our very
gates, with characteristic designs that
would endear them alike to those who
claim the state as a foster mother and
those who but tarry within Its confines.
And In the hopes of establishing such
a .concern, Mr. Robertson has tolled all
thn long days since the great disaster,
when all the work, the accumulation of
twenty years' labor, was consumed by
the greedy flames, with the exception of
a few beautiful specimens. From early
morning until the doepenlng shadows
make work Impossible In his improvised
workshop has Mr. Robertson toiled over
this problem, row sifting the rude clay,
now mixing and then completing the
ilrst stage of the work on the throwing
, wheel. Then the wares, nil of different
shapes and deslf's. for commercialism
has not entered, into the work, are
placed In the kilns, and from one to
three weeks the artist maker Is com
pelled to wait to see the finished
products of his labor. And even this,
hard as It may seem, would be im
possible for this man of talent had not
the brick company placed the workshop
and kilns nt the disposal of Mr. Robert
non and aided him in many way 3.
Arts and crafts are occuyiiig the at
tention of artists and workmen alike,
and ure Uncling thrir way Into almost
every branch of work.
It U always one gf the first arts prac
ticed by savage- raccH, and this same
idea Ir carried out in the rude mud pies

that report on the ticket be delayed un

Change in Chairmanships
\V. J. Hunsaker, chairman of the
committee ot one hundred, resigned his
liosltlon owing to his connection with
the newly incorporated Los Angeles &
Owens River railroad. In his letter "of
resignation Mr. Hunsaker said he was
profoundly Interested in the non-parti
san movement and that his resignation
as chairman was prompted by fear that
his connection with the enterprise
named might work to the disadvantage
of the nominees of the committee.

man and J. C. Kays was chosen treas
urer In place of It. J. AVaters, who re

About half a hundred members of the
main committee were present at last
night's meeting, which was said by Sec
retary Llssner to have been of an en
thusiastic character. Tho question of
candidates, It is said, was not discussed.
Committee's Report Adopted
Following is the report of the execu
tive committee, presented by Chairman
Russ Avcry, and which was adopted
without a dissenting vote:

mittee has elected J. C. Kays to that
position, and asks that this action be
approved by your body.
Executive Committee Increased
"As provided for in the call for this
meeting, we recommend that section
111 of the plan of organization of
your body shall bo amended so as to
read as follows:
" "The chairman shall appoint 22
members of a committee of '£>, o£ which
the said officers (tho chairman, treas
urer and secretary of tho central com
mittee) shall be members cx-officio,
which said committee shall be known
as the executive committee. The chair
man shall have like power to appoint
from time to time such other commit
tees as .in his Judgment muy be neces

of this organization, and shall also have
power, with the approval of the execu
tive committee, to rill vacancies In the
central committee; and shall also have
power In his discretion and with the
approval of the executive committee, to
appoint additional members to the cen
tral committee to a total number not
exceeding twenty-five." "
Tho section presented for amendment
Is altered at only two points, to wit, by
Increasing the number of the executive
committee from ten to twenty-five, and
by making It possiblo to increase
tho original membership of the central
committee by a number not exceeding
twenty-five. , The purpose is solely to
strengthen and , increase the efficiency
of both central committee and execu

committee unanimously recommends'
the adoption of the amendment.
Asks Further Time
"Your committee had expected to re

ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 26.— Grave
agrarian disorders have broken out In
the province of Viatka, the center of
disturbances being the important dis
trict of Malmulsh, with a population
of over 100,000, whero, according to the
reports received, tho Inhabitants of
more or less villages have joined in the
uprising, have disarmed and expelled
the police and are pillaging and des
troying tho residences of the land own
ers and devastating the country.
It Is rumored at Viatka that the ad
ministrative police chiefs In the Mal
mulsh district and eight of their subor
dinates have been killed. The excesses
began September 20 with a riot over
tho enrollment of army reserve men
for their automobile service. At the
vlllago of Multnanil a body of peasants
attacked the enrollment station, killed
a sergeant and six rural policemen,
mortally wounded tho assistant police
chief of tho district and destroyed tho
list of reserve men.
The Vlborg manifesto Is thought to
bo more directly responsible for the
disorders than anything else, it had a
wide circulation in Viatka province
and its exhortation to the peasants to
refuse to do military service was
spread by the members of the out
lawed parliament from Viatka.
