PASADENA, Nov. 12.— of the
most Important meetings., regarding
municipal ownership of, water was held
this/evening between- the officers - and
directors of nip I'nsadena- liako^. Vine-
y ard i. Mini and Water company, the
largest water rnnipntly In the city; mid
the city officials. This meeting, or the
fact that It Is held * at 'all, Indicate!
that the city has resumed negotiations
with the companies to • secure • the
plants of the several water-furnlshlngr
organisation*. • ■ ■■..-,. .
When all former actions looking to
ward, the .purchasing, of. the plants of
the several companies were rescinded
Home weeks ago by the city council
by ii vote of sto 2 many charged open
ly that the move was simply one to
kill the whole municipal water owner
ship project. The city administration
pleaded that the previous steps for
securing the plants were illegally taken
as .the bonds were voted to purchase
"all of the equipment" of the com
panies, whereas t\Vo of the largest of
the • organizations cannot give clear
title to "all" of their system, as people
living outside of the- city get water
from them and have, therefore, prior
rights. ; ■ ■ • ,-.
Thin contention was made light of In
certain quarters ami the meeting held
tills evening will go a long way to re
agsure the people of th<; city that the
administration Is giving a square deal
in the water matter.
All four of the largest companies
were invited to four separate con
ferences last week and none of the
boards of directors showed up on the
designated nights. This neglect on the
part of the companies was also con
strued to Indicate that the water peo
ple, sore at having the previous agree
•ment for sale fall through, would re
fuse to meet with tho present admin
As a matter of fact, the various
hoards do not wish to come to a con
ference without first holding a board
meeting to talk things over and settle
on some course of action. The meeting
this evening shows that negotiations
are really on again and for that reason,
while nothing official is given out. the
session Is most important. The other
three big companies will doubtless fol
low the course of the Lake Vineyard
company and attend later conferences.

of the house who found when they
came to dress for dinner that amah bad

the clerks, the bell boys and the two
Interested parties revealed that the two
suit cases, both bearing the Initials M.
8., had born exchanged on the wny
from the Southern Pacific depot to the
hotel. It chanced that both Mr. Black
burn anil Miss Bronson had met bo
fore In the east. The New York man,
who had been In San Francisco, was on
his way to Inspect some mining prop
erties in Mexico and the girl, accom
panied by her aunt, Mrs. Jane Simon
son, were coming to Southern Califor

On the south bound train from San
Francisco they renewed acquaintance

and the suit case exchange caused ex

put people on rather friendly terms and
when Mr. Blackburn learned that Miss
Bronson and her aunt were going to

made it a business to get through with
mines as soon as possible. Cupid had

Mr. Stokeley has tried his packing
case in Florida and by means of it
has shipped fruit to Germany and to
London with complete satisfaction.
Much of the California fruit which Is
shipped east is spoiled before It reaches
its destination, but Mr. Stokeley claims
that from 75 to 80 per ri»nt will be saved
by hi* method of. packing. The crates
are round and each plece«of fruit Is
packed In n separate . cell. The boxes
are so nrrnns;pil that thorough venti
lation Is given every bit of fruit and
there can be no bruising.
When the boxes reach their destina
tion they can be cut up Into smaller
packages without repacking and they
make more attractive baskets than the

device at Watsonvllle. In nbout ten

PASS HARD TESTS
INFLUENCE CAN NO LONGER
Candidates for Position* In the City
Sohools Will Be Choten on
Their Merita and Not
One of the most Important moves
ever made by the board of education
for the good of the service was pro
posed last night when the teachers'
committee recommended the selection
of applicants for positions by a com
petitive examination. The recommen
dation states that neither social nor
political Influence should enter Into
their selection, and that the present
method la defective and unsatisfac
lv times pnst the exnmlnntlon to
which applicants have been subjected
\v«h very perfunctory. Sometimes a
hundred nnd fifty would have to be
passed npon In two hours, and 'us a
matter of course only a cursory ex
nmin.itlon could be made. Credentlnls
of past work would bo examined, but
the applicant would be subjected to no
mental tests whatever.
Then, too, the question of influence
was a bugbear both to board and up
pllcants. For weeks before the choos
ing 1 of teachers, committee members
and superintendent were subjected to
Importunities for favorites from Influ
ential friends. Dr. Moore Is said to
have declared thnt as far as he was
concerned people could get more from
him by coming In person than by send
ing friends with a "pull;" but still,
large numbers of applicants seemed to
think thnt Influence would aid their
cause, and ho they lined up all their
"big" friends. Under the competitive
system this will be abolished.
Must Be a Graduate
Under the new system, which was
referred to the rules committee to be
acted upon next week, the applicant
must at least have graduated from a
high school and an accredited normal
school. An age limit is also placed,
the rule stating that the applicant
must be not less than twenty nor more
than forty years of age. A year's
successful experience Is also demanded
of the candidate, except in tho case of
kindergarten teachers. Teachers will
be selected by a competitive examina
tion of all uppllcants holding regular
The examination will consist of two
parts, a written test and an oral ex
amination, only those passing the
former being eligible to take the lat
ter. By the examination the commlt
teo hopes to be able to pick out the
best of the applicants.
The written, tests will Include the
general method of instruction, class
room management and discipline,
school hygiene and educational psy
chology, the special alms and methods
of teaching the different subjects and
composition, spelling and penmanship
will also be considered. Later on other
tests may be added.
The examinations will be conducted
by the teachers' committee and the
superintendents. Each member will
prepare a Hat of twelve questions, and
two hours before the teat two questions
from each person's list will be chosen.
These questions will constitute the ex
amination, in like manner care Is to
be taken to guard against favoritism
in marking. The applicant will write
her answer on a piece of paper which
contains only a mark, and not her ]
name. The principals of the schools ]
will pass on the papers, two persons !
marking each paper. The average of I
the two marks will be taken as the
Seventy. five Per Cent Necessary
Every applicant who passes the writ
ten examination by a grade of 75 per
cent or more shall be eligible to the
oral examination, which will be con
ducted by the superintendents and
teachers' committee. Each member of
this body will mark the candidate pri
vately, and after the examination Is
over the average of the different marks
will be considered the applicant's prop
er standing. Her name will be placed
on the list of eliglbles according to her
Thtse competitive examinations will
be held twice a year, the written ex
aminations being held the first Satur
day after April 16 and the first Satur
day of August. At those dates the time
of the oral examinations will be an
In order to Inaugurate the new
method at once the committee has or
dered an examination to be held Sat
urday, Dec, 15. Applicants will have
to furnish the board of education a
full statement of their experience as a
teacher not less than twenty days be
fore the examination. At the same time
a list of from three to seven references
to persons competent to speak of the
candidate's character und fitness for
the work will be demanded. The use
of personal, political or social influence
is strictly forbidden. According to the
rule, applicants for positions will huve
to register nut later than Monday,
The new measure, while it will entail
a great deal more work und expense,
will, it is believed, operate for the good
of the service, besides removing all
ground for complaint of favoritism.
