Caretnl Inspections— Bird That Won Hon
ors at World's Fair Shown Here
MORE than 8500 people visited the
nineteenth annual show of the Los
Angeles Poultry association at 415
South Hli: street, which opened at 8
O'clock yesterday morning.
The largo crowd Jammed the building
all day, and Ohs ard Ahs were the princi
pal words heard from the spectators as
each magnificent bird was inspected.
Children crowded their elders for a
chance to peer closer at the Wyandottes.
Mediteranneans, Orpingtons, bantams and
pHeons alike. Turkeys, pheasants, ducks
and geese came in for their share of no
tice also, and the obliging exhibitors, or
owners, officers of the association and
attendants wtre kept busy throughout
the day expiaiuims "¦* difference between

Arthur J. Little, breeder of White
Plymouth Rocks exclusively, besides his
fowls donated for the exhibit a portion
of his outside aviary at Monrovia, con
taining a large number of tropical and
domestic birds..
Mr. Little Is naturally a lover of birds
and animals, and for more than three
years was deputy officer of Monrovia dis
trict for the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals.
Quail May Be Domesticated
A common idea is that quail and doves
cannot be domesticated, but that It is
erroneous was proved last night when
Little entered the cage to replenish food
and water. A dove and a quail sat on
each shoulder, pecking at his ears and
showing their affection for him in numer
ous bird ways.
Mr. Little holds a permit from the game
warden to keep In captivity doves and
quail, and he doeg this merely for ex
perimental purposes. After the hunting
season is over he sets his surplus birds
free. Little Is a sturdy champion of
dumb animals and a protector of song
One of the most interested spectators
yesterday was John Manders of 716 Stew
art street. Master Manders, 12 years old,
¦was not an exhibitor this year, although
he carried oft the cup tor homer pigeons
last year. It was with eager ears and
envious eyes the girls edged nearer to
him ar. he explained the markings of his
birds. Manders said when he took his
vacation at the beach this summer his
birds became so wild he was unable to
capture them in fit condition to show.
Has Many Prizes
Mrs. C. D. Hubbard of San Fernando
had. besides a fine display of Peking
(lucks and mammoth hronze turkeys, each
of which took first prize, the largest ex
hibit of white Wyandottes ever made on
the Pacific mast by one exhibitor. When
csked about the five cups anJ many other
prize? she won at this show. Mrs. Hub
bard said:
'¦; have been exhibiting fouls for eight
years and have won many trophies of
various values. All of them, large or
rmall, are dear to my heart. Not that I
am vain, but 1 am proud of them for the
sake of my pets. Yes, they are all pets,
every one of them, and really I believe
the.- tuke more pride In the ribbons an'J
prizes than I do myself.
"I came to Los Angeles and this is my
fourth exhibit here. I have at my ranch
forty breeding pens for white Wyandottes
exclusively. I do not keep birds that lay,
under 144 eggs a year. This accounts for
the high standard of my stock."
According to eminent Judges, the qual
ity of Sebrights wan as good as ever
shown in America. Among the prize win
ners here are old champions at such
chows as Madison Square garden, Bos
ton and Chicago.
In silver Sebrights are birds fit to ex
hibit in any show in the world, bar none.
Bebrights are the only birds where the
male and female are bred and marked
exactly the same. The bird was originated
by Sir John Sebright in England over 10U
years ago. The best display was made b>
K. A. Rowan In silvers and M. A. Dllling

Exhibits New Breed
The buff orpington ducks which won
first prize for Dr. W. Jarvis Barlowe of

The pigeon industry in Southern Cali
fornia Is in a prosperous condition. There
never as a time when there were as
many high class fancy pigeons here as
there are at present.
A great many eastern fanciers are com
ing to Los Angeles to reside and are to
bring birds with them that are true speci
mens, coming up almost to the ideal. To
foster and promote this industry a lew
fanciers organized the Southwestern
Pigeon club four years ago. This club Is
now giving its fourth annual exhibit with
better "birds cooped than heretofore.
Thursday evening, December 5, a meet
ing of the club was held and the follow
ing officers were elected: J. A. Cox,
president; Will Schock, vice president; W.
H. Elliot, secretary; E. E. Bradshaw,
treasurer, and Wilbur E. Foster, supeiin
tendent of exhibitions. At this meeting
fourteen new members were taken In,
swelling the list to twenty-six. Tuesday
evening, December 10, another meeting
will be held, at which the date for the
next annual exhibition will be set. It Is
the Intention of the club to hold monthly
meetings, at which birds will be cooped,
Judged and discussed. At these meetings
all owners of fancy pigeons are Invited
to be present, whether members of the
club or not.
At the exhibition now going on the
birds are a:i classified In regular order,
each variety being lined up, coop to coop.
Visitors Praise Show
Many eastern fanciers who have vis
ited the show have remarked it was tht
best organized show they had visited
west of the Mississippi river.
Of the Parlor Tumbler class, little yellow
hen Lorlne, who m;ide a sensational roll
at Oakland a year ago, is present, in
better form than ever. She was put
through a performance to the amusement
of the crowd every hour, rolling from
forty to ninety feet.
A rare specimen of pigeon never before
seen on the Pacific coast Is the Russian
trumpeter. This is r. large bird with a
heavy cap over the beak, almost hiding
the eye, with a heavy shell crest coming
up over the back of the head. On their
feet and legs is a growth of feathers that
appear almost to be another pair of
Will ' Schock, who ¦ recently moved to
Los Angeles from Chicago, has without
a doubt the finest exhibit of fan-tails ever

as Madison square, Boston, and Chicago.
E. J. Waltz of this city has a good
display of Dragoons, winning the sliver
cup with his yellow cock.

By Acjsoclatod Press.
HOPKINSVIL,L,E, Ky., Dec. 7.— Five
hundred "night ' riders," masked and
heavily armed, marched into Hopklns
ville early *.oday and destroyed property
valued at more thun gJpO.OOO, while the
citizens in terror of their lives feared to
opeii their windows.
The police, fire department, telephone
and telegraph offices and even the rail
road stations were in possession of the
wild mob, ahooting right and left. The
flames from burning birildlngs mean

whole town was ablaze.
T\vo men, one of them Lindsay Mit

ing severely beaten. The other was shot
in the bacK while trying to move his
team from the path of flames.
The raid' of the "night riders" caught
the city unawares, as for some time the
depredations resulting in the tobacco war
had been of a minor nature and it was
generally thought that in the "dark dis
trict" at least the worst was over. The
property destroyed was as follows:
W. H. Tandy, independent warehouse,
building owned by John C. Latham.
B. M. Woolbrldge, association ware
Tandy & tfalrlelgh warehouse.
In addition, the entire glass front of
the Hopkinsvllle Kentucklan, Mayor
Mecham's paper, which has condemned
the raids of the "night riders," was de
stroyed, while windows in the front of
the Commercial Banking and Savings
company, the First National bank and
the Planters' Trust company and the
Bank o. Hopkinsvillfc were punctured
with bullet holes.
A number of other business houses and
residences Irear th i marks of the "night

Vast Area in Arizona to Be Protected
in Future by National For.
est Service Adminis
WASHINGTON. Dec. 7.— The president
has Just signed a proclamation creating
two additions to the Prescott national
forest in Arizona, having an aggregate
area of 320,0u0 acres.
The tracts will be placed under the for
est service administration at once and
proteoted from fire, theft and waste. The
additions include much yellow pine tim
berlr.nd and will give the Prescott forest
an area of :, 063,250 acres.
The country Included Is located in the
central por.ion of Yavapai county, be
tween the I'oundary line of the present
forest, and the Baca grant, and occupies
a portion of the divide between Williams
fork and tl:- Verde river.
The Santa Maria countalns and the
Juniper mountains are prominent fea
tures of the '-n-rltory.
The creation of the additions will re
sult In a benefit to Arizona by conserving
the timber rupply for the use of settlers
and the wood-using industries.
It" Is estimated there are about 70,000.000
board feet of yellow pine on the addi
tions. In srme places covered with com
mercial forest, the stand of yellow pine
often reaches 10,000 feet board measure
an acre, but on the low divide and on
ro-ky slopes the scale Is often reduced to
1500 feet an acre.
Parts of tho additions are covered with
a scattered growth of willow, cotton
wood, ash and box elder. While these
areas are valueless for lumber production
