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.
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."
By Associated Press.

When the family returned they discov
ered Hie rooms of the house In a state
or confusion, everything was upset, and
the contents of bureau drawers and of
trunks were scattered over the floors.
The, loot ''secured by the robbers con
- Bljted . of ■ $10, two gold rings, v silver
watch and a gold ' chain. . None of the
neighbors saw the robbers make their
entrance ►to the, house. or. escape and.

disadvantage in Undine any' trace of
the robbers.
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
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.

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
The supper table, which was laid with
twenty covers, was charmingly deco

settlag, combined with ferns. Through

"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

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,
