Indian and University Elevens Meet
at Fiesta Park Tomorrow
Afternoon — U. 8. C.
Is Strong
Football devotees will be in thrir
glory tomorrow afternoon when the
Sherman Indian team lines up with the
U. S. C. eleven at Fiesta park for what
should result in the most fiercely con
tested "heavyweight" gridiron battle of
the season. Both teams possess more
avoirdupois than the other Southern
California elevens and some smashing
line work is expected.
For years the Sherman Indians have
posed as the peer of till local gridiron
aggregations, but their only battle thl^'
Keason was with the Pomona team.
Coach Holme's university players have
completely outclassed the collegiate
elevens of the south and wish to down
the aborigines if possible.
Something new in the football line
was sprung yesterday when represen
tatives of Polytechnic high school, Los
Angeles high Rchool and Throop Poly
technic school entered into an agree
ment whereby the championship tangle
will be cleared. Thus far the situa
tion stands as follows: Los Angeles
Polytechnic defeated Throop, Throop
won from the Los Angeles Highs, who
in turn defeated the local Polytechnics.
Each institution has decided that an
other series should be played and a
game will occur December 15 between
Los Angeles high and Polytechnic. The

accused of perjury by Attorney Al

Allender says that he, Curtis, did not

In the peculiar mix up which result
ed from the interscholastlc football
games this season no one of the three
leaders, Los Angeles High, Throop In
stitute or Los Angeles Polytechnic,
was left undisputed champion. High
beat Poly and Poly beat Throop. This
would appear to put Throop third, but
all that was changed when Throop
beat Los Angeles High. Throop now
claims the championship and Captain
Lee formally made such a statement
last evening.
i Manager Baker, of the Consolidated
Gas company, has Issued a statement
in which he. says that he believes all
gas troubles will be over after today.
The company only tried to turn on the
gas during meal hours today and there
was, consequently, great suffering- for
most of the people of Pasadena do
pendent upon the Consolidated gas for
heating and cooking.
Last evening the "Holy City" was
due to appear at the Pasadena Opera
house. The company came to town all
right, but a gasless i city proved too
much for the aggregation and there
was no performance, as the theater
could not be heated. Manager Porter
says that the company may come
again when it Is either summer or the
gas tanks are filled.

Cold Snap Here le but a Left Over
Fragment of What Other
People Have Been
While the foothills and peaks of the
Sierra Madrei are receiving the brunt
" , the eastern weather which has man
aged to drifts across the desert to the
fair and sunny southland, and while
even the more southern cities nnd
towns or California are receiving their
regular quota or the cold and drizzly
rain which marks the opening of the
winter season, L.os Angeles has proven
practically immune from the disagree
able part this year and prospects for a
streak of continued good weather are
being handed out by the weather man.
According to the reports from, the
country yesterday the oranges art In
gOOtl condition and the ruin bus only
served to clean up the dust or ths i >■> »t
dry days. Hail him been reported from
several districts, but the snow is koep
iiK well up In tho foothills, with no
prospect of Us duplicating Its f<>at of
1X79, when a high wind from the hills
swept i sin tiering cloud of snow over
Los Angjles.
"If the people would only have the
foresight to lay In a little wood they
would not be complaining of the cold,"
was the statement of a prominent busi
ness man yesterday who has spent
many years of his life in Southern Cali
fornia, and such statement, even from
statistical reports of the weather man,
Is true.
Season Will Be Mild
"The cold season has begun a little
bit early this year, but the prospects
for a mild season are good," was the
statement of the weather man yester
day. "The temperature Is rising In
good style, and this dash of stiff
weather is just in time tojnake Thanks
giving day seem sort of natural."
Back oast, in almost every state and
territory In the Union, the hardest
weatheel of years has been reported
from time to time, and, according to
government reports, the snow storm In
the mountains, with the off shore
breeze which Is causing the present
.brisk spell in Los Angeles, is simply an
extension of the eastern storms.
So while the carpet of ice and sleet
sends the starving poor and the Ulj;
clothed old and young, crying and beg
ging at the doors of the eastern charity
institutions, California is compara
tively basking in a zone of summer.
Last year the wet season made Its
initial bow at just about this time of
year and It was followed by a break of
midsummer weather during the greater
part of December. That warm spell Is
predicted for Los Angeles this year, so
that the present cold weather, with
some more of the same style for Christ
mas, will give Southern California the
enviable reputation of havlr.g summer
weather In the winter, and yet having
mad«-to-order weather for the winter
It is reported that conditions show
a steady rise in temperature and an
abatement of rain within the next day,
or two.
Several of the amateur baseball teams
in and about Los Angeles desire to play
games Sunday, among whom are the
Meyers of Pasadena, In charge of Man
ager Carlson of Pasadena.
The Olive team also wants a game
for Sunday, the Negro Giants of Los
Angeles are preferred. Manager Mc-
Coy has charge of the Olive team and
challenges will reach him at Olive.
The Newsies club wishes to hear from
r.ny out of town team for a game next
Sunday afternoon. Those desiring to
answer this challenge will address them
to "Red" Perkins, 612 Wall street.

'Cavalleria Rusticana' and TPagliacci'
Prove* One of the Beet Nights in
the Season's History — Tri
umphs for All Concerned
The Lambardi company at the Au
ditorium hafl a relapse last night and
as a consequence the double bill of
"Cavallerla Rustlcana" and "I'Pagli
acci" proved one of the greatest' treats
that tho organization has offered here.
That Is a peculiar thing about this
aggregation— its irregularity. One never
knows what to expect of It. One night
when every one is keyed up to a per
fect performance — "Carmen" is an In
stance—it proves a lamentable fluke;
then when every one discounts the an
nouncements and stays away because
of fear of a failure all the principals
line up and deliver a vocal treat sel
dom equaled, and even the chorus de
velops symptoms of ability and human
L&st night with the double bill and
the announcement, in particular, that
Orelll would sing Canto many shook
their heads. They remembered that
incomparable lament and doubted. But
that single number was seldom done
better anywhere and Is the one thing
that gives Orelll the laurel wreath for
his stay here.
Then again it was noted that Ada
berto would sing both Santuzza and
Nedda and people negatived it. They
didn't believe she could do both In
one eveninr- But she did, and It
would be hard to say which was the
finer, or what she has done here that
surpassed them. *
That's the way of it with the Lam
bardis; if any one feature more than
another of their stay stands out it is
this very unreliability.
However, the large audiences that
did take the chance and went to the
Auditorium last night had good cause
to rejoice. Both operas were given
superbly. In the first Adaberto sang
like a bird and Pacinl and Antola
achieved new acclaim. The famous
Intermezzo came In for two renditions
and encores were general. "Rustlcana"
was well done and quite worth while.
But the real acclaim went to "Pagli
acci," and rightly. It has the more
sensational numbers and hits the gen
eral taste more strongly. From the
famous and beautiful prologue which
Antola had to sing before the curtain
four times h« (ore they would let him
go to the duet between Nedda (Ada
berto) and Sylvio (Pacinl) and thence
to the wonderfully fine lament which
Orelll did with such consummate art
it wal one great ovation and one
series of recalls and repeats. How a
eompuny that can do these things ho
well can fall down on simpler and
easier affairs Is one of the many puz
zles connected with Italian opera.
There was a largo and generous share
of good for D'Ottavl, too, for his Tur
iddo was fine. Mtllon was the Lola
and in "Pagllacci" Nunez had the small
part of tbe harlequin and both were
good. The chorus in the first opera
was (air, i>ut in the opening of the
latter a series of skirls on Scotch bag
pipes would have been musical and
harmonious compared to the discords
It emitted.
The double bill will be repeated Fri
day; hear it. "Barber of Seville" to

The Standard Operas, a compilation
of their plots, music and composers,
by George P. Uptpn, is an invaluable
handbook for the tyro as well as the
professional musician. Well Illustrated,
with portraits of many present day'
opera stars it at once gives one a com
plete synopsis of many of the great
operatic compositions, together with a
sketch of each composer, so that one
has in condensed form most of what
one needs to give a full understanding
of the man and his music. It omits
some which might well find a place
and retains others which seem not en
titled to the distinction, buf this is
more a matter of opinion, /since no
standard exists; and generally the se
lections are absolute. This present Is
the nineteenth edition.

Quite the most powerful story yet
written by the popular English author,
Sir William Magnay, Is this present
day romance of London social and po
litical life. "The Master Spirit."
A complicated plot replete with
mystery and surprises gives the
story Intense Interest. It is written
along original lines with strongly
drawn characters and dramatic inci
dent, ending with a striking and satis
factory denouement. The hero, Paul
Gastineau, is first presented as the
mouthpiece of Geoffrey Herriad, a
great statesman who is supposed to
have been killed. Both love the beau

In "The Dragon Painter," by Mary
McNeil Fmiollosa (Sidney McCall) a
new Japanese romance by the author
of "The Breath of the Gods" and
"Truth Dexter," Is Mrs. Fenollosa's
ripest and most artistic work, in which
she again reveals the Inner depths of
Japanese feeling-, but along quite dif
ferent lines. There is a fascination
about this exotic story of Tatsu, the
Dragon Painter, that holds the reader.
The dramatic events are all depicted
with the same careful workmanship
un.l brilliant background that have
characterized this author's previous
books and the story promises to be
more popular than "The Breath of the
Gods." Kano lndara, the last of his
race and the last of a mighty line of
artists, his daughter Ume-ko, and Tat
su, a wild mountain artist— the Dragon
Painter— are the chief characters of
this engrossing, exotic story.

Into "Jack Shelby," George Cary
Eggleston has put much of his own
early life and that of his gifted
brother, Edward Eggleston, and used
entertainingly the knowledge and ex
perience thus acquired. The scene is
laid In Cllfty county, Ind., around
1840, and the experiences of four
brothers, who take it upon themselves
to establish a new home to which they
may take their widowed mother and
their sisters, give a picture of pioneer
life more faithful than any to be ob
tained from historical work. Much
hearty enjoyment Is combined with
hard labor, and an exciting plot is
furnished by the successful efforts of
the eldest brother, Jack Shelby, to rid
that section of a gang of thieves,
which had previously enjoyed immun
ity through having a deputy United
States marshal among its number.

'in his pictures of Indian life, and there seems no sign
of a lessening of the powerful human interest with
which he is able to invest their sombre forests. His
vigorous' unconventionally and sympathetic under-
standing of nature and of her children in the rough,
never combined to better advantage than in "White
Fang.' . . . White Fang is as enthralling a hero
as any novel of them all can boast. . . . It is a
splendid story, but it is more than a story — it is a
wonderful study in animal nature and development."

Jack London's

■ "Typical, graphic, tense, powerful, gripping the reader
with a power that knows no breaking till the story ends,
v .• . Shows more gentle feeling and more charm
; than anything else the author has written."
