.Mason, "off agin, on agin, Finnegin, "

1.,-ist night, the announcement was
made that the company would positively
go to the rink, and that money was up
to prove it. What the reports will be
today ni) human being can tell. Monday
night it. was just as assertively given
out that the company would be in the
Mnson as it was strenuously aeolarc I
last night that it wouldn't. Predictions
as to whore it will be by tonight are
like making book on a fixed race at
Ascot.
If the company goes to the rink the
company underlined for March 4 at tho
Mason. "The County Chairman," will
probably play there after all.
The agent of the opera company says
Several thousand dollars will be ex
pended In making the rink flt for the
show; that It will seat more than the
Mason, all on one door, and that prices
will be $3 to $1; that fifteen operas win
be given and that the scenery will be
sent on in sections to bo adapted to the
skating rink.
The season opens Tuesday, March 5,
With "La Gloconda," in which Madame
Nordlcii and Signots Constantino and
Sigurola appear; Wednesday, "Rigo
letto," with Miss Neilsen and Signors
Constantino and Campurani; Thursday,

petition your honorable body and show:
"That there now exists on Com*
mtrclai street, between Alamedn and
Los Angeles streets, n large number of
houses wheriln Immoral conduct is
daily and nightly practiced (mil large
crowds of dissolute, Immoral und
drunken men and women congregate
at nil hours of day and night and the
streot is thereby ri ndered obnoxloui
and offensive to nil decent, respectable
and law-abiding people wishing to pass
through It, either lo the Commercial
street depot of thr Southern Pacific
railroad on Alameda street or to their
homos beyon Alameda street, a 1a 1 d that
our property nbntting on tho street is
greatly injured an l impatre i In value
by renson of the Immoral conduct of the

SUSPEND SON OF
CITY COUNCILMAN
Patrolman Robert Healy Must Do Pen.
ance for Six Months for Conduct
Unbecoming a Police
Officer
Patrolman Robert E. Healy was sus
pended for six months by the board of
police commissioners last night for
conduct unbecoming an officer. Healy
was charged with being intoxicated
while on duty.
Healy stated to the board that he
had been sick for some days and was
In no condition to work, which was his
only excuse.
Mayor Harper said to the accused:
"This is a bad proposition. I am
sorry for you and for your father, who
holds an honorable position in the city.
You, as his son, should not have put
him or yourself in this embarrassment.
It ought to appeal to you to make you
careful. Tho position of patrolman in
Los Angeles is an honorable one. and
should not bo degraded."
Calling for opinions, the mayor asked
Commissioner Cole what he thought.
"The moral effect of these cases is
bad and it is necessary for the chief
and captains to maintain discipline,"
said he. "If we condone these offenses
discipline will fall to pieces. "We are
building up a force that Is creditable
all over tho country. A man who dis
graces his job disgraces himself too.
And while we sympathize with him, it
looks as though he had lots of warn
ing. He made a manly statement and
admitted his fault."
Commissioner Schenck snld when sol
diers on duty got drunk they wen- shot
and a policeman's work was much like
a soldier's. He had lots of men ln his
employ and while he hated to be se
vere, at times it was necessary for dis
cipline.
