SHOWERS DRENCH SUNDAY CROWDS Rain, Unußual This Late in Season, Catches Churchgoers and Holi. day Seekers Without Protection Several thousand light-hearted An gelenos who put their trust in the weather prophets were greviously dt« appointed yesterday when Jupiter Plu vlus, in contradiction to all precedent, unloosed his showers in the after noon. "Fair and cloudy," said the lo cal seer; "cloudy and unsettled," said the state prophet of things pertaining to his field; and neither gave warning of the rain which came about 6 o'clock. Rain as late as May 26 is a rara avis and as unwelcome as it Is infrequent; and perhaps none of the Sunday crowds who received the dripping ap preciated the novel experience of show ers at this time of the year. At 1 o'clock a few scattered drops fell, but not enough to make an im pression on the dusty streets. At 5 o'clock, however, the precipitation was more general and a great deal heavier; and throughout the downtown district the streets were cleaned and the side walks drenched by the shower. The later shower caught many peo ple on the streets. Everywhere cover less automobiles made a hasty run for the nearest garage, pedestrians sought the closest shelter of friendly awning or open store; and everybody looked surprised and grieved at the remarka ble phenomenon. < "Why have you taken your son out of school without asking permission?"

Miller, city chemist, after an Investigation of several days, dur ing which analyses of Los Angeles river water were made, makes some interesting comparisons of his results with those of W. H. Helleman, tho government chemist who for the six months ending April 30 made weekly analyses of the Owens river at Char ley's Butte, the intake. Mr. Miller finds that the Owens river water Is superior for domestic purposes to the water now supplied to the city. In the comparison that he makes he says Owens river water con tains only three-fourths as much mat ter or salts In solution as the Loa Angeles river water, which the city is now using. The samples of Los Angeles river water were taken from the main on Broadway. The samples taken by Mr. Heileman were from the Owens river. All river water contains some mineral salts, so that his analyses show the maximum quantity of salts which the water Los Angeles is to use will contain. All other water purchased by the city In Owens valley is still better, the mingling of the waters forming an av erage water which will be almost twice as pure as the present supply. Makes Comparison Mr. Miller was requested by the cam paign committee and officials of the Los Angeles Aqueduct to make a care ful comparison of Mr. Helleman's re sults with those of his own. The ac companying signed statement gives the result of his investigations. The table of comparison showing Los Angeles river water to contain twenty five per cent more salts In solution, than Owens river water is as follows: L. A. City Aqueduct. Supply. Snlts In solution 22.0 29.0 Lime (calcium. Ca.) . . 2.0 4.4 Magnesium (Mg.).... 0.6 1,5 Sodium and Potassium (Na. and X.) 5.3 2.6 Sulphate (SO4) 2.5 R.B Acis carbonate (HCO3) 11.5 15.4 Mr. Helleman made twenty-two analyses, in all of the water of Owens river at the point where the city will divert its supply. The period over which the tests extended, November until the end of April, is such as to show the quality of the water under almost every condition of drouth and freshet. His report on his findings as made to the government is to the effect thai he found the water to be satisfactory. "On the basis of mineral content," says Mr. Heileman in his report, "the water at the intake of the proposed Owens river aqueduct, for the period studied, is, for a western water, of good quality for municipal and industrial use. It necessarily follows that for agricultural purposes its quality can in no wise be questioned. "We may sum up the sanitary re sults on the Owens water as being gen erally favorable for the periods ob served." CHALLENGE TO A DUEL IS PLAY TO THE GALLERY By Associated Press. ST.

FISKE WILL GIVE GREAT ACTRESS A HUGE RECEPTION She Will Play in Skating Rink— More Than 1000 Tickets Already Sold. Tenderfoot's Impression of the Big Camp Over In Globe, Ariz., /which la one of the richest and biggest copper cen ters In the territory, they have some thing else -to talk about just now be sides the output of ore and the rise and fall of mining stocks. The town and the entire district surrounding it are In a state of excited anticipation over the engagement of Mrs. Fiske and the Manhattan company, who are go ing to stop off for a night on their way to Los Angeles ancf give a perform ance of "The New York Idea." Philip Jacques, Mrs. Flske's advance representative, arrived In Los Angeles from Globe yesterday. He is an east erner whose views of the west had been gained by visits to larger cities. When he reached Globe, he says, ho felt aa If he stepped Into the pages of a magazine story. The wealth and ac tivity of this little town of some eight thousand people, situated In a hollow among the mountains, were a revela •There is no doubt that Mrs. Fiske will be greeted with enthusiasm in Globe," said Mr. Jacques,* "for I have never seen greater appreciation and in terest than Is displayed there oyer her appearance. Everybody Is talking about It and the majority of the seats had been Bold when I arrived there. The railroad which connects Globe with the rest of the world Is to run an excursion train that will bring hun dreds from the towns in the Gila val ley Besides, there are no end of peo ple coming by stage and wagon from other mining towns and ranches from which there is no train connection. One order came from seventy-flve miles distant and the writer has to come by wagon all the way. "The theater in Globe is made to serve the additional purpose of a skat- Ing rink. It Is an immense structure, but the Indications are that It will be. filled to Its capacity. The commercial travelers who mako Globe are aiding Manager Alexander in 'boosting" tho engagement and are taking posters of the play to the towns roundabout that they visit. Every settlement in that section of Arizona has, I am told, its poster of Mrs. Flske. "To get to Globe you leave the Southern Pacific at a junction point called Bowie and ride for four hours to the end of the Glla Valley, Globe & Northern, which runs jone train vt day up and down the line. First you cross fifty miles of the worst sort of desert, then through a fertile irrigat ed district, then past the Apache res ervation, where Geronimo used to make trouble, and then wind among the mountains till the train stops in a sort of gulch and there la Globe. The principal street straggles oft down the gulch. You see an Imposing mod ern court house and a new hotel, both of which would do credit to far larg er places, and a miscellaneous mass ot buildings of adobe, brick and wood. Houses, ono above the other, .straggle up the hills in every direction. It is a chaos of the old and the new; of the temporary and the permanent. "For an Idea of the slie of Globe you must follow the main street along Its tortuous way. The people have been so busy taking copper out of the hills that they are only just beginning to take the kinks out of the street, and level It and lay sidewalks. At night especially the picture the town presents Is to an easterner the sort of thing he reads about and sees sketches of, but never expects actually to come into contact with. To make headway along the street you have to elbow your way among crowds of miners, In dians, Mexicans, Italians, Chinese and Japanese. The lower end of the street Is an alternation of saloons and 'short order' restaurants. How so many of theny can exist Is a mystery until you realize that everybody makes money in Globe, and lota of it. "Mingled with this flotsam, there are well dressed men and women whose appearance shows education and re tlrement and wealth. At the hotel ■stamen dress for dinner as they would in Loa Angeles. And after the In diana and mountaineers who trot by on their ponies may come men and women in the smartest riding togs. "It must be nearly two miles to the end of the main street, where the mine that makes the town Is located. Here hundreds of men are employed in the mine itself, the smelter and the con centrator: The plant has both steam and electric railroads of Its own and stretches over a big section of hill and gulch. "My impression Is that this will be the first time that an actress of Mrs. Flske's distinction, together with a company comprising suen noted play ers as John Mason, George Arliss, Charles Harbury, Marion Lea and the others in the Manhattan company, have appeared In a town like Globe. The chance to see a New York com pany and production, especially when it is one of the notable successes of the season. In the first year of Its career, is something that even Los Angeles, not to mention Arizona mining camps, does not often have." The tour that brings Mrs. Flske to the Burbank next week is another In stance of her pluck In the face of the obstacles that her Independence makes for her. Though on account of In dependence most of the theaters where first-class attractions regularly play are barred to her, Mrs. Flske Is making a tour of unusual length that will In clude nery all of the principal cities of the west. An odd feature of the Jour ney is the fact that she and her com pany are traveling on Dunkard tickets, though the Dunkards themselves ab hor the theater and all its people. But the Dunkard rates were lower than the regular fare and open to everyone, so the company took advantage of them. SOCIETY CALENDAR FOR THIS WEEK Mrs. L. F.

LONG BEACH. 26.— The Apostolic mission, the "Holy Rollers' " church on Locust avenue, has been the cause of much unrest on the part of people liv ing near, as meetings are frequently continued until 2 and 3 o'clock in the morning Several persons have at dif ferent times found it necessary to se cure the aid of the police In quieting the enthusiasts. Today the leader of the flock, Rev. E. McCauley, a negro, applied to the police for protection from persons whom he said make fun of his services and interrupt them. Beginning June 3, Profs. Neel and Whlttlker of the public schools will open a six weeks' summer school for the benefit of pupils who have been unable to pass their regular examina tions or for any who desire to try for advanced standing. A crowd which filled the seats In tho Y. M. C. A. gymnasium last night wit nessed a highly creditable athletic ex hibition given by about fifty members of the different classes which have been in training under Director Merwin dur ing the winter months. The leaders In tho classes were: Junior B, Glen Carl, junior A, Albert Morosco; work inp boys, Charles Tharsing; Inter mediate, John Richards; senior B, fly ing rings, Merrill Foote; parallel bars, Wllmot Long; tumbling, Harry Owens. The Central M. E. team Is now lead ing In the first division of the Sunday School Baseball league and the First M. B. lads are ahead in the second section. These two teams will com pete next Saturday afternoon for the championship of the league. Owners of property In the Long Beach Park tract are about to bring sulV against tho Alamitos Land com pany to compel the latter to park the bluff opposite the tract and also to oil the streets and pipe gas into tho tract. The parkHes claim that the land com pany promised these improvements when the land was bought by them. Numerous inquiries are made as to the length of Long Beach blocks and tho computation of distance. Accord- Ing to City Engineer Shaw, three blocks between California and Mag nolia avenue make a quarter of a mile. Beginning at First street, the same rule holds good for the streets iunning north and south. At one time the security of the outer wharf was threatened because of the great holes which were scoured out about the base of the cylinders by thu waves and tldqs. This condition has changed, however, and Wharfinger Beattie states that the bottom of the ocean beneath the pier is level as a floor. During the last four weeks there Why You Can't Win, in Wall Street 7 Is clearly and forcibly told in an article^ "Whaf» the Matter with Wall Street, " in the N»w Broadway Magazine for Tone. This article tells startling facts about the inside operations of Wall Street — how the brokers work — what it means to trade upon "mar- gins" — in short, tells the story of the world's great- est speculating center from a new viewpoint, and with authority. "The Menace of the Race-Track" is another arti- cle of exceptional interest It t«lls of the power with which this passion gnp« thousands upon thousands of people, the way the bettors violate the law, of the big men and women in the metropolitan racing game, and of the direful misery which follows in its wake. "The Luxury of Modern Hotels" parades in text and picture the princely palaces wbkh have made our metropolis the amacement of the world's travelers. The Work of a Famous Painter, with reproduc- tions of some of his famous masterpieces, is told in another typical Broadway Special, and a glowing ac- count of the Brilliant Society Colony at Toxedo Park, with many beautiful portraits of society's queens, is fur- nished in still another of these splendid Broadway features. In addition to these articles there are / EIGHT SPLENDIDLY SPARKLING SHORT STORIES by such favorites as Eleanor Gates, Mary Wilhel- mina Hastings, John Kendrick, Bangs, Edith J. Hul- bert, Edwin L. Sabin, and*others. These stories are all so infused with life and optimism that no one who loves a good tale well told can afford to miss them.

Directors of the Long Beach Hotel company have given out that the open ing of the new Hotel Virginia will be deferred until the structure has been entirely completed, which vill not be before the first part of November.
