CAUSES ROW MANY CHANGES EXPECTED AS RESULT RUMORED GLASS 18 TO BE DIS. MISSED Expert Advises Residents of Pasadena to Spend $200,000 Additional on Municipal Light. Ing Plant Pasadena, A«encr. n North Raymond Avenue, Phonei; Runset 1807, Home 2124. PASADENA, Nov. 7.— The arrival of Prof. Cory's report on tho light question, a rumor that Superintendent Glass la to be dismissed from i the service of the city and a hurried of the, councilmen to consider the Cory document were # a few of the transplrlngs In municipal cir cles today. Prof. Cory'i report was found to con sist of thirty-two pages of typewritten manuscript. In it he advises Pasadena residents to expend $200,000 additional on the municipal plant, and ho Intimates that Superintendent Glass doesn't know what he is talking about when he says the plant can be successfully operated on less money. The fact that hoth Prof. Scattergood and Prof. Cory disagree with Superin tendent Glass on the amount necessary to complete the plant probably gave rise to the report that Mr. Glass was to be superseded. "There is absolutely no truth In such a report,"' said Mayor Earloy when asked If It were true tonight. "No such action has been decided upon to my knowledge." Nevertheless there has been talk for several days that on account of the dis agreements between Mr. Glass, and the mayor the former was slated to go to make room for some one more In accord with the mayor's plans. Mr. Glass is an appointee of former Mayor Waterhouse and was highly recommended for the position. Upon assuming the reigns of municipal government Mayor Earley called upon Mr. Glass for a complete report concern- Ing the light plant, and in It Mr. Glass recommended an additional expenditure of $128,496. Not satisfied with this, the mayor referred the subject to Ezra Scat tergood, said to be an expert on electrical subjects. Scattergood recommended .an expenditure of $195,000 additional. It has been said that Mr. Scattergood Is connected In some way with corporate Interests, and the mayor next referred both reports to Prof. Cory of Berkeley. The latter now recommends a further ex penditure of $200,000. with $50,000 additional In case conduits are adopted. Citizens Complain Citizens who tonight heard the. Cory recommendation express their belief that if Mayor Earley could find a few more experts to figure on the matter the cost wou.a be boosted to the skies. "Of course these experts, who are gen erally in the employ of corporations or manufacturers, are going to put up the cost Just as high as they think the city will stand," said one Interested tax payer. "It is to their Interest to do so." In submitting exhaustive' figures Prof. Cory places the annual cost of operating a plant such as he recommends at $R6,030 and the annual Income, with commercial lighting, at $84,000. For the purpose of keeping down ex penses Mr. Glass has introduced the mesh system in the distribution of cir cuits. Prof. Cory says this will not do when commercial lighting Is Introduced, and he recommends Independent connec tions in sections or districts. This Is an additional cost, and Mr. Glass says it is unnecessary at present. For three hours all members of the council but one heard the suggestions read, but no action was taken because of the absence of Councilman Root. For his benefit a meeting will be held tomor row night, when the document will again be gone over. Introductory to a mass of statistics in his report Prof. Cory says: "If the plant as at present installed and operated represents an investment of approximately $150,000, additional electric light bonds should be voted for $200,000, providing no underground system Is built. "If underground conduits are Included an additional $50,000 should be provided for the work. These conduits, and partic ularly the manholes, should be used ex clusively for electric light and power cables, and under no conditions should telephone, telegraph or messenger cables be allowed in the manholes or extra con duits of the underground system." The latter part of the recommendation knocks a hole in the city administra tion's plan to arrange to use a portion of the Sunset Telephone company's con • dults. The total cost of the lighting system without the underground system, if the Cory report is adopted, will be $350,000. RACED ACROSS CONTINENT TO RELATIVE'S DEATHBED Special to The Herald.

Strains of music welcomed the new comer in the hall, the air was filled with the fragrance of roses and a damp, "woodsy" odor. A blaze of color greeted the eye as one paid the paltry "two bits" required as entrance fee and then entered upon a long hour of delight. The display this year Is almost entirely of cut flowers, although there are some palms and ferns and tropical plants in tubs and there is a botanical display collected from plants growing in the open about Los Angeles that will prove a lodestar to the student of floriculture. The exhibits are arranged on the four sides of the hall and on a dozen tables that occupy the floor space. The com bination display of cut flowers and potted plants made by Howard & Smith is the largest in the hall and extends over one half the length of the room. Here are about a dozen new varieties of tubrous begonias— not the plants, but the big waxy blossoms— and also a curiosity in the person of a red passion flower that Is not beautiful but decidedly interest ing on account of its relationship to the white beauty that has for so many years been the only representative of the name. Here are thirteen varieties of perennial phlox, and a new dwarf salvia, both we'l loved denizens in the old fashioned gar dens of our childhood, and once aga'.n coming Into popular esteem. Some rare Japanese evergreens growing In pots ara worthy especial attention, as are also several varieties of palms that were raised from seed, the Klntla Balmoreana and the Kentla Fosteriana.

Among tho cut flowers displayed by this firm are noted the blossoms of the peren nial delphenlum, of a delicate sky blue, a new type of zinnias of a. strain Just re ceived from England, and the beautiful new white rose that Is having such a suc cess, the Frau Karl Druschky. An especially fine lot of chrysanthe mums Is shown from Dr. Walter Jarvls Barlow's home place In Sierra Madre, choice roses also being on the same table. The variety and beauty of the carna tion display made by the Oceanslde Floral company is noteworthy as is also their fine assortment of chrysanthemums. Mlsa Sara C.

Theodore Payne's display Is In a clas* by Itself as the vases of sweet peas an.l carnations, beautiful Indeed, are few. whlla there are cacti in profusion. Mrs. R. T. Whittlesey of Boyle Heights and Ernest Hurny of South Pasadena each make interesting showings of out flowers. Among the most Interesting of the sin gle exhibits are the two giant specimens of tropical plants sent by Jacob Dleterlch, bearing respectively the botanical names of "monstera deliclosa" and "alocaslo stenduerelfolla" ; they grow over six feet tall and, like rubber plants, are exceed ingly decorative. A. W. Rosa of Vermont avenue shows a magnificent specimen of the Whltmannl fern, a wonderful variation from the com mon sword fern, and D. W. Coolldge. seo retary of tho Pasadena board of trade, exhibits many rare tropical plants, both flowering and fruiting. The Redondo Floral oompany has a new variety of fern, the elegantlsslma, that is- well worth seeing, and probably the largest ever seen In this country. The Edward H. Rust palm nurseries Of South Pasadena make a display of ferns and palms that Is also one of tho molt interesting in the hall, among the single specimens being a fine one of the Jap tnese umbrella pine, although the Cali fornia Rose company of Pomona la a close seebnd, the bright coloring and ex quisite texture of the flowers being unus ual even In this land of roses. The water Illy pond is a charming feature with Its white, pink, deep red and purple flowers with the curious pods, varying in slse from that of a dollar to a big, big saucer, and native to England^South America, Siberia and Zanzibar. These plants are from the H B. Huntington place at Shorb, the largest and finest range of lily ponds on the Pacific coast and under the care of William Hertrich. professional gardener. The botanical display arranged by P. D. Barnhart, director of the botanical garden at the University of Southern California, contains much matter for the studiously inclined and such lntar estlng names as "Luffa Acutangula" and "Hedychlum Coronarlum." The exhibition was not quite finished last night, but other displays promised will be in place this morning. The display closes Saturday evening at 10 o'clock.
