TRADE BOARD TO PAY BONUS CLUSTER LIGHTB WILL BURN CITY POWER PLANB CALL FOR LIGHTING THE ENTIRE SYSTEM Smaller Globes to Be Installed as a Matter of Economy and All Lights to Burn This Fall Pasadena Airener. 7 North Raymond Avenue. Phones: Sunset 1807, Horn* 9134. PASADENA, Sept. 28.-The cluster lights that have been more or less a* ¦ource of trouble to the board of trade, Which was instrumental in their installa tion, will be lighted by the city In about St month. The Edison company will can cel their contract with the board of trade by paying a nominal bonus, and this win ter when the tourists are here all of the clusters will shed their luminous rays. The ornamental posts are virtually city property, as it was the Intent of the sub scribers who paid for the lights In front of their respective property that they should belong to the municipality. Only fifty of the clusters have ever been in operation, and the remaining number will be wired In the near future and trans formers installed to connect all of them with the city power fiouse. Instead of tha Sixteen-candle power lamps now In use eight-candle power lamps will be in stalled, which change will effect a con siderable saving and give as good decora tive effect, which Is the primary object of the clusters. Superintendent Glass has been given permission to buy for the city a number of the new style tantalum lamps, for which are claimed at least 40 per cent greater efficiency than the carbon fila ment style in general use. The new lamp has a filament of the metal tantalum twelve Inches in length, arranged In ver tical lines around a central axis, while the carbon filaments in the old s\yle are only three to four inches long. The quality of the light is also better, being a white light like the arc Instead of yellow. Another point of superiority claimed for tantalum is Its longer lit';, which will effect a saving of at least $2 for each lamp in service. Ten 'of the new lamps will be installed the first of next week and the balance soon after. ' The difference in the cost of the lamps is alfout 35 cents, but the saving will soon more than make up the difference, at the same time giving a better light. LOCATION OF JEWELS IS STILL A MYBTERY Bpeclal to The Herald. PASADENA, Sept. 28. — The valuables taken from the home of Mrs. Meeker on North Raymond avenue has as yet not been recovered, but the police do not doubt that they will be able t0 locate it soon.

MAYOR EARLEY APPROVES THE GARBAGE PLANS Bpeclal to The Herald. PASADENA, Sept. 28.— Some fear has been felt on the part of a considerable number of Pasadena householders that the proposed plan of collecting garbage ¦wauld result in a monopoly for Mr. Hill, who will install the system. Mayor BCariey states that there it no chance for extortion, graft or monopoly under the ordinance that will be framed, but that instead the people will be given a flrst dass sanitary servico if they wish It, but it will not be obligatory to patronize any particular man. The standard type of garbage can that will be adopted wiil be insisted upon, no matter who makes the collection and well covered wagons that will not leak will be another improvement. The price that Mr. Hill proposes to charge is fifty cents per month for each can and the men now In the business cay that he la welcome to the business at that price, as they can figure no profit at such a rate. The installation of the service will cost in the neighborhood of J25.000. and a large «urn will be expended monthly for the maintenance. The matter of burning refuse and gar bage on the premises will probably be allowed to stand aa it is at present bo that the householders will not be forced vto patronize the garbage man. TUMBLE FROM A TREE i CAUSES DEATH OF LAD Special to The Herald. FASADENA, Sept. 28.— Raymond Kyte, 'the 10-year-old son of John M.

The amateurs draw. Crowds pay good money to hear and see them, and the worse they are the better the audience l^es it. A girl who is rasonably good to look at, sings fairly 'well and dances with moderate grace and agility can't make any kind of a hit, but let another girl appear, a girl whose features don't know the value of team work, as George Ade expresses it; whose voice would put to sname an asthmatic phonograph and whose dancing shows the grace of a rheumatic hippopotamus, and the house will go wild with delight. Friday night the winners of the first three prizes at Fischer's amateur contest were better than the average. Los Tres Manos, who won first prize, proved so good. In fact, that Herr Fischer has promised to give them a professional en gagement later. As for the others. Miss Sadie Harris, "the Bowery girl," did very nicely after she recovered from her stage fright; and Miss Ida Sloan, the "woman from Alaska," wore her elaborate Alaska costume as though the thermometer made furs a luxury, which certainly proves her to be possessed of the true artistic temperament. As for the stock company, its members have come to regard amateur night as a picnic They crowd into the wings to watch the amateurs perform. Sometimes their criticisms are kindly and sometimes they are not, but they are always to the point. One of the girls, called the Cuban act a tabasco number; the Alaskan act a frost; and the Bowery girl a green lemon DEATH CLAIMS SISTER OF ROBERT J. BURDETTE Operation in Chicago Hospital Per formed Weeks Ago Proves Fatal. Was Prominent in Church Activities Special to The. Herald. PASADENA, Sept. 28.— Rev. Robert J. Burdette is in receipt of a telegram telling him of the death of his sister, Miss Mary Burdette of Chicago. Miss Burdette died in a hospital following an operation per formed some weeks ago. For more than thirty years she was en gaged in the work of the Baptist church and was secretary of the Woman's Bap tist Home Missionary society. She was also connected with the Nurses' Training school. She was Go years of age and was well known" on the lecture platform, hav ing traveled and lectured in the inter ests of the missionary society. Miss Burdette had many acquaintances In Pasadena, having visited her brother here eeveral times. CORNER STONE LAID FOR NEW CARNEGIE LIBRARY S[ cclal to Tho Herald. SOUTH PASADENA, Sept. 28.— The laying of the coner stone of the Carnegie library at 3 o'clock this afternOn at tracted a larg« assemblage. The cere monies were in charge of the Masonic order, H. Oscar Lawler, M. G. W. M. of the Masons of California delivering the address. I Tough on Johnny Mrs. Lapsllng was tolling the caller all about Johnny's narrow recape. •I declare," shf said, "I thought he wouM choke to death before we could get the doctor. He'd got a piece of green apple fast in his tlieosophagus and it wouldn't go cither way." LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 29, 1907. — which last was rather tough on Miss Harris, who has ambitions. They don't use "the hook" at Fischer's, though the audience occasionally calls for It. "The hook" is an eastern institu tion, and is Just what its name signifies— a big hook attached to a long handle. It is used to pull from the stage amateurs whose acts offend the esthetic taste of tne audience. Ordinarily when business is bad a frown corrugates the managerial brow, but Herr Fischer reverses this procedure and frowns when his house is filled. He frowned Friday night. He began frown ing at 7:45 and the scowl deepened until the second show began at 9:45. It was a full grown, life sized frown, as you may see from the picture, and the reason for it lies in the fact that tae herr found himself compelled to turn away many good dollars from the box office merely because he had no more room to seat spectators. Some ,of them came back later and took in the second show. Others didn't, and it was for this lost business that the Fischerian brow bore its unac customed corrugations. Long before time for opening the per formance the house was packed. Finally the orchestra appeared and began the overture. Back on the stage all was In readiness and when the music subsided the curtain was rolled up on an acrobatic vaudeville act, presented by professionals. Then came motion pictures, through which the audience waited uneasily, and after that the amateurs. The picture man reached the end of his film. The lights flashed up. The an nouncer stepped upon the stage. "Ladies and gentlemen," he said, "the INQUEST OVER DROWNED BOY DECLARED UNNECESSARY Special to The Herald. LONG BEACH, Sept. 28.— Deputy Coroner Sage this morning took the testimony of J. W. Russell, Captain Sam Spikes and Engineer Cleve Hyder of the launch Music concerning the death of 17-year-old Bernie Hurst at Catallna yesterday. Hurst, who was known here as Ber nle or "Curly" Ward, was seized with cramps while swimming after a skiff which had broken loose from the Music in "Jim Johnson's harbor" at the east end of Santa Catallna island. The others of the Music's crew could see his body at the bottom of the har bor, the water being still and clear. The body was brought to the surface by catching fish hooks in the bathing suit the lad wore. Efforts to resusci tate him were not abandoned for two hours. Deputy Corner Sage decided that an Inquest was unnecessary. Young Hurst's mother, Mrs. E. S. Ward of 1177 East Forty-ninth street, Los Angeles, with her husband, the boy's stepfather, visited the Orelll-Mc- Fadyen morgue, where the body lies, again today. Funeral arrangements will not be made until word Is re ceived from Mrs. Ward's daughter in Sacramento. BOARD UPTILTS AND THROWB MAN OVERBOARD , LONG BEACH. Sept. 28.— 0. Sisk of Los Angeles, employed by the Mer cereau Construction company, fell from one of the Jetties being built at the mouth of the San Gabriel river this morning, the accident being caused by the uptilting of a plank upon which he stood. A heavy crosscut saw which had lain upon the plank and the plank Itself followed Sisk in his twelve-foot plunge into twenty feet of water. He was unhurt and clung to the floating plank until he was thrown a rope and hauled back upon the Jetty. first number on our amateur program this evening will be Miss Sadie Harris, 'the Bowery girl.' " Then a rather pretty girl in a tattered skirt, loose waist and shoes run down at the heel made her appearance. She started to sing. But as her eyes became accustomed to the lights she saw all those people out In front and her voice trembled, broke, quavered and went on badly off the key. She shook so that her fright flvas visible even to the audi ence, but she didn't break down entirely. The song finished Sadie began a dance that was really funny, It was so unlike anything previously seen under that name. She was applauded liberally and came off the stage flushed but happy. It was her first appearance and she had made good. "What is your name, my dear"— this "my dear" is exceedingly professional and doesn't mean anything— asked the announcer, "I want It for the paper." "Oh," she replied, "is my name to be In the paper? It's Sadie Harris, but I wish you would put in a pretty one." Her first appearance, yet she was al ready ..unking of adopting a stage name and a "pretty one." It doesn't take long, you see. Then came Los Tres Manos. This Is a Cuban dancing and singing act, quite professional in appearance. The team is made up of two men and a woman and me woman physically is bigger than her two companions put together. They did very well, but doubtless did not really belong in amateur company. Miss Ida Sloan, winner of the third prize, sang an Alaskan song indifferently well, but deserved her money for her KNOX DISPORTS ON BEACH, BOYISHLY, IN SANDALS Throws Senatorial Dignity to Winds and Plunges Int^ Breakers, Out. distancing His Boy in Race to Surf ATLANTIC CITY, Sept. 28.— When Sen ator Knox takes a bath in the surf he is as frisky as a kitten. He emerges from a private robing room at the Shelburne and as he steps from beneath the board walk clad in a blue flannel suit and beach sandals he presents a figure that would simply need the toga to bring the illusion that a Roman tribune is proceeding ma jestically to the bath. Then he kicks tho sandals into the air with the deftness of an acrobat, and out pacing his boy plunges into the first big wave, throwing all of the dignity of the greatest legislative body in the world to tne winds. When Senator Knox bathes he goes right Into the surf with a logical directness very much after the style of his speeches, and is a synonym of energy, coupled with boyish delight, while he is in the water. GIRL LAWYER PROBES THE LUMBER TRUST Mist Grace Quackenbos Investigating Matters in New Orleans — Bona. parte's Emissary Keeps Mission Secret WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.— A woman lawyer Is aiding the department of Jus tice in lta investigation of the lumber trust. She is Miss Grace Quackenbos of New York and she has the title of assist ant United States attorney. A few days ago Miss Quackenbos ¦lipped into New Orleans. She did not costume. This consisted of a dress with hood, called "parkay" by the Alaskans, made of the skins of thirty-one white Alaskan jackrabblts, the work being done by Indian squaws; muclues, or leggings, of clipped reindeer; gloves of moose hide, and a baby seal contrivance used by the Alaskari mother in which to carry her pappoose. "Miss" Sloan explained that these things had been sent her by her husband, who now is at St. Michaels. That "Miss" is another stage trick. Again, you will note, it doesn't take them long to learn. The amateurs out of the way, the reg ular performance began and the car toonist got really busy. He had grabbed the amateurs on the fly. Now he rapid ly Jotted down the "salient features" — that's what he called them — of the pro fessionals. First Jolly Zez, as a very unjolly henpecked husband; the leading woman, who did the pecking; one of the "Lead Pencil Sisters" In Turkish cos tume; Kate Carlson, the dainty soubrette, in a hat that belonged to another girl and that was almost as big again as its diminutive wearer; the handsome lead ing man, and the rest of them. When It came the soubrette's turn she tried to tell the cartoonist his business. "Now, be sure and make my nose p"?e"t ty," she said; and he did, though the result Is so obscured by the milliner's creation that you may not be able to see the classic lines which were intended to represent the Carlson nasal appendage. From a group, some dozen feet distant, came an excited ejaculation: "O, girls, my hat's being sketched. It's great to be a principal, Isn't It?" know anybody there, and was happy In the belief that no one knew her except the officials with whom she had to deal. However, an energetic newspaper man found her and obtained a sort of an in terview from her, but received no Inti mation of the fact that she was on a visit of Investigation into the lumber interests of the south. Officials of the department of Justice are guarded in their statements concern- Ing Miss Quackenbos and her mission. All arrangements for her work were made between the attorney general and Miss Quackenbos, and in the absence of Mr Bonaparte not an official in the depart ment will discuss her. Miss Quackenbos is a member of the New York bar and has been in the ser vice of the department of Justice about eight months. She is regarded as a very shrewd woman and as eminently fitted to investigate a trust. REDUCTION OF CAR SERVICE DECLARED BUT A RUMOR Srecial to The Herald. LONG BKACH, Sept. 28.— A rumor to the effect that the Pacific Electric com pany would diminish its service be tween Los Angeles and this city be cause of the recent action of the city council In the matter of franchises held or desired by the electric company, was denied today by Attorney E.

TO AID DESCENDANT OF ZACHARY TAYLOR Sister Says President's Great.Grand. daughter, in an Asylum, Is , Sane — Deep Plot Alleged LOUIS, Sept. 28.— Ben yon Phul and wife have gone to New York to try to have Miss Sallle Taylor, great-grand daughter of President Zachary Taylor, discharged from the psychopathic ward at Bellevue hospital. She is alleged to have been put th#re for the purpose of keeping her out of the way of her employer, Mrs. Laura Blos som of St. Louis, whose wealth Is esti mated at more than $1,000,000. It is alleged by the Yon Phuls that a rich New Yorker, who, by a marriage, is distantly related to Mrs. Blossom, has for a long time been envious of the inti mate position that Miss Taylor has been occupying at the home of Mrs. Blossom, and afraid that she would Inherit the fortune.

'DOWN WITH THE BOSSES' CITY CLUB GUESTB HEAR THREE RINGING ADDREBBEB WOULD OVERTHROW BOUTHERN PACIFIC MACHINE Assemblyman Drew, Judge Hunsaker and Attorney Tyrell Call on Men 'to Demand Popular Government Three. Interesting addresses enlivened yester4ay*B session of the City club. A. M. Drew of , reßno, member of the Legislature, who discussed "Civic Cor ruption—lts Cause and Cure," wag fol lowed by Impromptu talks by Judge W. J. Hunsaker and Frank G. Tyrrell. The three addresses consumed only an hour's time after luncheon and were earnest In the dtmand for the overthrow of political bosslsm in California. Assemblyman Drew thought that two ways of curing malfeasance in office were feasible— publicity and removing tempta tion. Drew's Remedy Publicity, he said, means that you must watch your public officer, and then to make sure you mjist watch the fellow that watches the public officer; and then to make doubly sure you must watch the fellow that watches the fellow that watches your public officer, and so on ad Inflnitum, until you virtually do the work yourself. The second method, If possible, Is the most effectual, as practically demon strated at our two public institutions— ona at San Quentln, the other at Folsom. The best way to cripple the bosses h« thought was to remove the spoils largely by putting clerkships and many other positions now at the mercy of the boss under civil service. Aside from this, however, It was neces sary to see that the civil service commis sion itself was not appointed by the same boss. People's Will Stifled "If you destroy the power of the politi cal boss you once more get a government of the people," said Judge Hunsaker. "'Not in many years have we in Califor nia enjoyed government by the people. "We have been governed by the South ern Pacific railroad for Its own benefit and that of other predatory interests allied with it, with the result of complete overthrow in this state of popular gov ernment." The speaker said he had from time to time noticed many independent move ments launched, but too often the leaders engaged finally in a contest for spoils, and the real object of the movements was lost. "We have a good civil service law, con scientiously administered by men who be lieve In the principle of reform," he sa'.d. "Then soon will the political boss be out of an occupation. "Wipe Out the Machine" "This movement whereby the people are commencing to reclaim their power which corporations have usurped is abroad now— there is a feeling in the land that more men are needed like Governor Folk of Missouri and out* own great president. "If the people will only be true to them selves with no desire to take the spoils but to give us a reform government the Southern Pacific machine will be swept off the map of California." Frank G. Tyrrell said those who had preceded him had-- appealed *o the top range of our intellectual faculties and had rung truly the yearning for better civic ideals. "If our friend, Joseph Folk, ever goes wrong it will only be through ambition," said the speaker. "I was with him In St. Louis fourteen years ago. Folk's fight was absolutely disinterested. He was butting the bull off the brim. "Bad Politics of Good Men" "One of the factors that opposed him at the outset was the great mass- of frigidity and of quasi criminal neglect and indifference on the part of the people, "Those who ought to failed to help him Tith their moral muscle and sinew. "He suffered, St. Louis suffered, Mis souri suffered and the nation suffered from the bad politics of good men. "I see no way out of It but to continue this agitation and appeal to the soldierly courage of our fellowmen. "As magnificent as Is the business pros pect in Southern California, as alluring and as easy as success seems to some in business there are other ideals more mas terful. • "The hearts we need are those which will yield an Immediate response to the higher Ideal of disinterested public ser vice. "Every man Is willing to shoulder a gun to resist the invasion of the enemy. "We want,: however, more of the cour age and sacrificial heroism of peace— now. Civic Lethargy "The difficulty with Folk was this civic lethargy. "Finally the people awakened. They sat up. It was the awakened conscience that made Folk governor of Missouri. - "He is the incarnation of a moral ideal. "He is not greatly magnetic and not a politician. He will not have a great career in politics unless the tides come together. But he has the moral tenacity which beats a bulldog's Jaws. "There are multiplied scores of men like him in civil life. "The trouble is they don't get away long enough from the main chance. "We of California are going to get the ear of the people. We will set the state afire and we will yet break the political chains and throw down the collar of the bosses that now hold tia down."
