MUSIC AND) BEAMA Miss Nethersole's Carmen Miss Nothorsolo's production of Cnr- Rien last night will take rank in the mlnda of those who saw it with her bent work hero. Sho Is Carmen whon she dons the Spanish mantilla and dances tho cachuca, nnd no mistake about It. ITor Carmen Is a wanton of the wantons, but a most fascinating, luscious and entrancing wnnton, and even her wickedness is readily forgiven because of her charm. Seductive to the last degreo, graceful, clever and lovely, Mlrs Nethcrsole In this role would have won over nn anchorite, and no one could blame either Joso or the torea dore for falling subject to her langor oun glances and Bubtle songs. She Is a most voluptuous Carmen, too; nothing of the cold or hard wo man, more a creature who never knew aught but the gratification of her own pleasures and tho satiating of her ap petites. Miss Nethersole attempts to palliate this conception of the char acter by the words to this effect which she makes her utter, but her own charms of person give the He to any excuses. Kspeclully do her kisses show that the gypsy girl she depicts. Is not a Sunday school siren, but ;i wholly self ish and abandoned voluptuary. Royco as Mendez, the toreadore, is good; Mills as Jose is hotter than h» has been so far; and Molly Pearson as Dolores is properly tearful. The en semble effects are superb and the stnge management is tho best that, in this work, either drama or opera, the writer over saw. Tonight Miss Nothersole will give for the first time in Los Angeles Paul Her vleu's masterpiece, "The Labyrinth." This is another problem play, based on divorce and the child's position un der it, and is one of the notable dramas of the day. NEBRASKA STARTS WAR ON LOBBYISTS Governor Recommends Action in In. hi gural Address and Legislators In troduce, Drastic Bill — House Passes Measure By Associated Press. LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 3.— George L. Sheldon was today inaugurated gov ernor of Nebraska. In his inaugural address he urgcr that the lobby be ban ished from the state house, and In sisted that the legislature enact a law making it illegal to give or accept rail road passes In this state. 'Following the governor's lead, Rep resentative Whlteham offered a resolu tion In tho house of representatives which provides that: "If any lobbyist shows on the floor of the house while this body is in ses sion, the sergeant-at-arms is instructed to eject him, forcibly if necessary." The resolution was adopted by a vote of 59 to 28. In the senate Senator Patrick intro duced a bill making it unlawful to at tempt "to influence, members of the legislature to support or oppose any measure pending therein otherwise than by appealing before tho regular com mittees thereof, by public addresses, newspaper publication or by written or printed statements, arguments or briefs _ delivered to each member."

HALT CALLED ON IMPORTING MEN ANGELENOS WANT THE FIRST CHANCE AT CITY JOBS Provision Found in the Charter That Officials and Appointees Must Be Qualified Electors of Los Angeles What Is termed by politician* Mini others mi unseemly desire on the part of certain recently elected city officials to i ; o out of town for deputies may be milled by the city attorney. There has been considerable criticism lnI In nome quertcrs over the announced lntention or ai leasi one of the new of flclnls to Select a personal friend liv ing in another city im bin chief deputy and to tin- lion of the water commis ■lon In selecting a Southern Pacific em ploye living in San Francisco ns the auditor <>r the Owens river aqueduct. As I FMUiI 'if the discussion thero has been a CIOSC study of the I,ns An peln charter by those Interested and there have boon discovered provisions Which, II Im claimed, will prevent the appointment o' non-residents In posi tions or tniHi In the city government. Must Be an Elector Thero Is a provision which requires that every person elected or appointed to a position in the city government shall have boon a qualified elector at tho time of his election or appointment, and It la claimed that this will apply to depjtyshlps in the various city of fices, by reasor of ihe fact that whilo such positions nre not designated di rectly by tho charter thoy are positions which have been created by the (oiiii cll and therefore are city offices within the meaning of the charter. City Attorney Hewitt's •attention yes terday was called to this provision of tho charter, and It Is believed by those who discussed the question with him, the city attorney will hold, should tho problem come before him Officially, that ull such appointments come under that provision. Mr. Hewitt, later In the day, was in conference with one 'of the new city Officials, who has expressed his Inten tion of electing p.s his chief deputy ii personal friend who is not a resident of Los Angeles, with the result, it Is said, thr.t a local man will be named to fill tho position. In tho case of the auditor for the Owens river aqueduct there has arisen a peculiar situation. This position is under the civil service rules, but undo: the provisions of an ordinance the posi tion could be temporarily filled, pending tno taking of civil service examina tions. Southern Pacific Man Imported Some time ago the water board em ployed a San Francisco man and an employe of the Southern Pacific to act us aqueduct auditor, and he has been in the field about six weeks. Appointees to positions included in the civil service regulations arc compelled to be qualified voters at the time of the taking of the examination, and a vague suspicion exists In the minds of those who are opposed to going out side of Los Angeles for any one to oc cupy any position connected with the municipal government that the civil service examination may be postponed a sufficient length of time to enable the imported men now assuming the duties t"> become a qualified elector by reason of having lived in the city the required number of months. Both of the positions involved re quire the services of expert account ants, but it is claimed by those con versant with the facts that there are in Los Angeles just as competent ac countants as can be found in any other city oh the coast and that in justice to them they should be permitted to have the first chance to fill the positions.

McCready of 614 Carondolet street in honor of her son, George McCready, and his house guest,. Cyril Pemberton of Stanford, who are home for the holidays. During the evening many unique pro gressive games were played. One of the most enjoyed was that in which a horn was given to each, and pasted on each was a label directing the bearer to go to some place in th« house, as the library shelf, etc., and there they would find directions to take them somewhere else. These instructions, which were all different, took then over the whole house, and at the end they found a gypsy who told their fortunes. The one who reached her first of course had' their fortune told first. Many other similar games were played during the night. The supper table, which was laid with twenty covers, was charmingly deco rated with scarlet carnations and poin settlag, combined with ferns. Through the rest of the house holly, Christmas bells and smllax were arranged. Mrs. Wheat Entertains Mrs. C. P. Wheat of Avenue Fifty-six entertained thirty young women of the Y. W. C. T. U.

In the parlors white roses were ef fectively nrrunged and in the dining room a color scheme of red and green was carried out. THEY NEEDED A FROST AND SUGGESTED AN ACTOR FOR IT "If you want to know what people think of your acting, go out in the lobby and listen to what they tire say ing as they come out of the show." That is what Claude Usher, playing this week at the Orpheum, says. "Nineteen persons out of twenty," continued Mr. Usher," will not recog nize the actor without his make-up, and if your act is worth talking about you will soon learn whut people think of it. "BometlmM we learn things we do not want to know in that way. Dur ing the yellow foyer epidemic in New Orleans ■ couple of years ago Fannie, my wife, and I were playing dates in a western town, not ho very far from the stricken city. We were billed us the particular attractions of a cer tain romantic performance. After the show one evening I was standing with another member of the company in the lobby of the theuter smoking a good night cigar, when some gentlemen, Btandiiti? near, who had evidently seen our show, were discussing the merit* of the performers. Three out of the quartet sftuiuul to have enjoyed the performance, but the fourth could not agree with the others. Several com plimentary remarks were passed about my wife's abilities uh an actress, bul number four persisted in his adverse criticisms. He could see nothing at tractive in either the performer or the performance. "After v while the subject changed and they began a discussion of the fever plaguo and each had a remedy to suggest. One maintained that as soon as the froat came New Orleans would he freed from the fever.
