BOARD'S ACTION
HAS GOOD EFFECT
CONTRACTORS HASTEN WORK
ON SCHOOLS
All Buildings Rapidly Nesrlng Com.
pletion, and Educational Body Will
Accept Several nt Next
Meeting
■ The Rotten or the board of education
taken at It* last meeting, when addi
tional time was refused to a delinquent
contractor, has had a wholesome ef
fect on other contractors who are
working on school buildings. When the
members of the building committee of
the board of education went on a tour
of inspection Wednesday to see how
work on the new schools wan progress
lngI Ing they found that- two buildings were
already being used and »even more
buildings were almost ready for occu
pancy.
The failure of contractors to secure
seats for the buildings- has caused some
delay, and the lacS of experienced
workmen to set the Beats retarded the
work, but these obstacles have been
overcome and the work is now proceed
ing rapidly. Several of the contractors
are working their men night and day
hs well as Sundays to fulfill their con
tracts, and by the Ist of December it
is expected that all the schools will
bcb be completed with the exception of
the Magnolia and the Logan street
buildings.
Among the schools which the board
will accept at its meeting Monday night
are the Fifty-fourth avenue school,
which is now being occupied; the Sev
enth street school, the Euclid avenue,
the Second street, the Utah street and
the Fifty-second street schools, in all
of which the seats are being placed as
vapidly as possible. The last named
building is one of the finest the board
lias erected and contains eleven rooms.
The -Cornwall street school, a nine
room structure, is already occupied.
If no further delays occur the board
rxpects to have theso. buildings ready
for occupancy by the end of n*xt
week. Tho Main street school will not
be completed till some time in Decem
ber, but as the contractor's time does
not expire till the fifth of the month
it Is thought that he will not be far
behind the contract date.
MRS. SCHECK MAY
GO FREE TODAY
Decision to Be Handed Down by Judge
Trask Will Settle Question of
Facing Grand Jury In.
dictment
By a decision to be handed down this
morning by Judge Trask of the su
perior court Mrs. Aurella Scheck, un
der charge of perjury, will learn
whether she must face trial on a grand
jury indictment or whether although
by her own confession she helped to
murder her husba,nd she is to go scot
free.
The Scheck trial has dragged slowly
during the recent weeks of its- hearing
and the woman will have been in jail
nearly six months even if she is re
leased today.
When Bcheck was found dead in hia
bed with two bullet wounds to show
tho cause of death, Mrs. Scheck told a
story of how burglars had entered her
homo and of how she had seen them
stand by the bed and shoot her hus
band.
When she was taken before the coro
ner's jury the following day to give
evidence she repeated the story under
oath and that waa taken down In the
transcript.
Later she confessed that with Stack
polo she had plotted to kill her "hus
band. Stackpole was her lover and the
two were to make away with Scheck
ajid then go to Arizona. Incidentally
Scheck was coaxed into taking up a
comfortable insurance.
Was Promised Immunity
Aa soon as Mrs. Scheck confessed
that Stackpolo had shot her husband
after she had let Stackpole into the
house at a late hour of the night. Ktack
polc was arrested and tried in the
lower court and then bound over.
At that time attorneys for thp district
attorney's office promised Mrs. Scheck's
attorneys immunity from punishment
for their client in case she would turn
state's evidence.
Mrs. Scheck went on the witness
stand and told In detail the story of
the murder as she and Stackpole had
planned it. That evidence was also
taken down In transcript and when
Stackpole had been sentenced to life
imprisonment and Mrs. Scheck asked
for her liberty the evidence In the case
was taken before the gram: jury, and
although the charge of murder ugalnt-t
her was dropped a charge of perjury
was filed.
The two statements made under oath
and both so conflicting were used as
evidence.
Since that time her attorneys have
been fighting the grand jury indict
ment on technicalities and today Judge
Trask will hand down a decision eithi f
giving the woman the coveted freedom
or compelling her to face a charge of
perjury In the superior court.
WAS THIS A PROPERTY PUP?

"We cannot permit anyone to steal

He did.

RUSSO MAKES A HIT
AS JOSE IN "CARMEN"
DOMENICO RUSSO
Dontentco Iliiian, now of 1..09 Angeles,
inn the leading tenor of the Lanibardl
company; on its previous visit, san«
Don Jose in "Carmen" at the Audi
torium last night and redeemed tho
performance, which when sung Monday
whs tho worst that that company had
Kivon here. Husso also received a per
sonal ovation frpm the very large audi
ence, and enough flowers to stock a
florist. In fact, nt one point in the
second act the opera simply stopped
while ushers lugged great hampers of
blossoms to the stage.
Russo'k fine, high, sweet and clear
tenor is too well known to need praise
from anyone in Los Angeles. Last
night to his charms of voice he added
marked nbility as an actor, and his
Joso was far ahead of every other part
in the score save and lone Antol as
Escnmillo. So good was it that he ac
tually inspired Campoflore, who not
only sang- better thnn before, but did
some acting herself that wasn't half
bad. Russo ls better than any tenor
that Lambardi has with him, and the
maestro would show much wisdom If
he engaged the local favorite for the
rest of his season— if he can.
The repetition of "II Trovatore" to
night is looked forward to as a treat, as
Tuesday night witnessed the best rendi
tion that the present company has
given here. "Carmen" will be repeated
tomorrow matinee, and "Faust" Sat
urday night.
Symphony Concert Today
This afternoon at 3:30 at the Mason
opera house the Symphony orchestra
will be heard in the first concert of
this, its tenth season. Will it rain?
It has been ten years of struggle and
determination on the part of Mr. Ham
ilton, the ladles of the directorate and
Mr. Behyraer, its manager, to give to
the public an organization on artistic
lines that would equal the Symphony
orchestra of the cast. The orchestfa
this season numbers sixty-six mem
bers. Harley Hamilton has been its
director for ten years, Arnold Jirauss
is concert master and Ludvig Opid, the
premier 'cellist. Twenty-two members
have been continuously playing to
gether for the ten years. The programs
this year include some of the best
symphonic selections known to the
music world. That for today was
printed by The Herald yesterday.
Band Concert at the Belasco
The Royal Italian band, under the
leadership of Marco Vessella, will give
the first of a series of concerts at the
ISelasr.o theater this afternoon at 3
o'clock. These concerts will include the
best selections in the repertoire of the
band and should afford splendid enter
tainment to that large portion of the
local public- that likes good band music.
There \\ill he Royal Italian band con
certs at the Belasco every Wednesday
and Friday afternoons during the win
ter season. The management has de
cided upon a uniform charge of twenty
five cents to all portions of the theater.
This afternoon's program will in
clude the "William Tell" overture, se
lections from "Tannhauser," "Carmen,"
"Mlgnon" and "I'Pugllacci," and sev
eral new Intermezzos.

Injuries Result From

An act of bravery was displayed by
the motorman and conductor of car No.
liiu of the Interurban Sixth street line

possible deaths of four passengers and
resulted In slight injury to the carmen.
The motorman lost control of the
car as It coasted down the hill on
Sixth street two blocks east Of Flg
ueroa, and during- the run of two
blocks down grade the car gained a
terrific- momentum.
At Hixth and Figueroa the car
jumped the track, bounding several
liet and striking- the front fender
against the 'street curb. Facing what
might have been instant death, the
motorman courageously remained at
his post and the conductor ■ stood on
the back platform calling to the
frightened passengers fo keep their
seats, as several attempted to jump.
Ah the car struck the curb both the
motorman and conductor were flung to
the pavement, sustaining only Blight
bruises. The fender was torn from
the car but none of the passengers
was hurt.

NEW COOK HAS
HER KINGDOM
NO HAPPIER WOMAN TODAY
THAN MISS ENID TAPIA
City Council Puts Kitchen at Detention
Hospital, in' Her Care and the
Board of Health Does
the Rest
No happier woman will be found in
Los Angeles today than Miss Enid
Tapla.
For seven years she has been cook
at the detention hospital.
She was anxious to continue in that
position, but there were so few meals
to cook for patients that the future
looked dubious.
She waited and waited for an out
break of something, but the city was
so decidedly healthy that the poor cook
had to bide her time.
Finally the board of health found a
way out of the dilemma. The .way was
found last night.
The members had persuaded the city
Council recently to paSB an ordinance
providing that the cook should gel
Wages of $50 a month when there are
no patients in that hospital and $3 a
day when there are.
The board last night officially ap
pointed Miss Tapla to the position she
has held ho long and there will be many
a good meal waiting If any luckless
patients should be seized with a con
tagious disease.

TOO MUCH WEATHER
FOR JUST ONE DAY
FORECASTER IS REMINDED OF
PORTLAND
Wollaber Says He Ha& Had the First
Taste of Real Work Since Comincj
to Los Angeles in May — Rain Not
Equal to Last Year
"This is the first day that has
seemed like a regular weather bureau
day since I came here last May," said
Arthur B. Wollaber, the genial weath
er bureau man, yesterday afternoon.'
"The eight years that I was In Port
land, Ore., before. coming here," con
tinued Mr. Wollabor, "I had the river
service to attend to and being near the
track of the storm it required much
work— and such a contrast to the
weather bureau service In this com
paratively dry country! Bu^ today I
have been kept busy, it being the first
rainy day of the season, there having
been only a fow small showers previ
ously. At 5 o'clock this afternoon the
registration was .53 of an Inch, mak
ing .59 for the sea.soii, ;is against over
one and one-half inches at this date
last yenr. The rainfall up to midnight
tonight will probably not come up to
thai ncord. The total rainfall last
year was 15.70 inches.
• "This rain Is due to the rapid move
ment of a 'storm which was apparently
centered, over • Mexico yesterday. This
morning this disturbance was noticed
in well defined form over Arizona, It
caused general rain In Southern Cali
fornia and ' considerable, snow In Ne
vada, Utah and Western Colorado.
"The weather yvlll continue unsettled
anil probably showery tomorrow. The
lain began this morning at 7:30 o'clock
and up to 5 o'clock thlß afternoon the
heaviest rainfall wax between 10:20 and
10:30 o'clock, registering .11 of an
inch. 1
Many were the ■ surprised people,
caught unawares yesterday. Although
lt was generally conceded that the cold
snap ought to be broken by rain, no
one really expected- It, and many a
pretty gown was given a good drench
lng yesterday. The umbrellas tlnit have
been tucked away .were brought out in
large numbers,' forming oval canopies
over the heads .of . pedestrians that
thronged. the streets. <>, y, . .

TO CHECK HUGE FIRE LOSSES
Building Authorities ilgln in Movement
to Carry on a Campaign of
Education
Special to The Hrrald,
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.— Organized
effort on a large scale to reduce fire
losses is represented in the Interna
tional Society of Building Commission
ers and Inspectors of this city, which
has just held its third annual elect ion
and issued a report of its progress.
Free advice on the subject of fire pre
vention is offered "to any municipal
ity, association or individual having
their own corporate or his personal in
terest enough at heart to ask for It."
The society is composed of the chief
officers of the building departments of
the large cities. Nearly every Impor
tant city in the country is represented
as well as many cities in Europe, some
of the members being from England,
Austria and Mexico. Its work is di
rected by the chief executive officer,
F. W. Fitzpiitrick, one of the best
known consulting architects and au
thorities on fire prevention in the
United States.
Through the society's efforts many
cities have already been induced to Im
prove their building laws. The society
is also trying to get municipalities to
lower taxation on fireproof buildings,
while nljaotng the maximum assess
ment on flic traps which are a. menace
and the protection of which involves
big expense to every large city.
Speaking or the aims of the. society
and the Deed for such an organization,
Mr. Fltspatrlck says: "Year by year
we burn up actually one-half of as
much as we add. During the last
iinii it some cities have far exceeded
that average- Atlanta erected $239,335
Worth of buildings in September ami
burned up $215,000 in October; Buffalo
built $689,9»0 and burned $313,000. Our
average annual fire loss is now $200,000,
0; this year it will exceed $500,000,000.
The International Society of Building
Commissioners and Inspectors was
formed to carry on a campaign of edu
cation whereby the public will become.
thoroughly familiar with what consti
tutes fireproof construction and thu
mill that exists for It."
