PASTOR APPEALS FOR
PRACTICAL REFORMS
WORLD MOVING ONWARD TO
CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS
Adoption by Los Angeles of Charter
Amendments Has Struck Terror
to Hearts of Machine
Politicians
Rev. C. C. Pierce, pastor of the
Memorial Baptist church, preached on
civic righteousness yesterday morning,
taking for his text Nehemiah 6:15,
"And so the wall was finished." He
said, in part:
"Nehemiah was what would be called
in our day a practical man. Jerusalem
was in a bad way. The inhabitants
were corrupt, there was conflict within
and contention without. Nehemiah was
that type of practical reformer who
believes in doing something tangible.
He had a vision 01 a better and a clean
er city and came to the conclusion that
there were others who wanted the same
thing. He was one of those men who
see that there is something that ought
to be done and then goes to work to do
it. The world would never go ahead a
step were it not for men of this stamp.
"Nehemiah found things in Jerusa
lem in the worst possible condition.
All sorts of evil influences sapped the
moral, spiritual and material life and
weakened the manhood of the people of
God. Every attempt at reform Nehe
miah saw, at once, would be imme
diately nullified by existing conditions.
He went straight to the root of the
difficulty in a very materialistic sort
of a way.
"He did not organize cottage prayer
meetings; he did not tell everybody
to get into the orthodox church and
flee from the wrath to come: he did
not start a series of missions in the
neglected portions of the city of Jeru
salem; he did not organize classes for
the study of the books of Moses; he
did not say that the people 'needed a
deeper work of grace in their hearts;'
he did not follow the approved course
of trying to get everybody converted
and attending the temple worship; but
he did the very mundane and material
istic thing of building a wall.
Namby-Pamby Talk
'There are other cities than Jerusa
lem where the same things are needed.
There is a good deal of namby-pamby
talk these days which aims at nothing,
hits nobody and accomplishes just what
it is intended to accomplish—nothing.
The only way to reach some people is
with a stone wall or a club or its equiv
alent. We have no literal walls about
the modern city, but we need some
thing that will accomplish the same
end. We need and will have good
charters, good courts of law, good clean
officials who are willing to enforce the
laws; good schools, energetic citizens,
patriotic, whole-souled and conscien
tious men who are not afraid of the
curses of the rabble or the mud of the
grafters, but who will go after the
wrong, drag it from its hiding place
and enthrone decency, honor and high
ideals.
"One week ago last Tuesday was the
greatest day Los Angeles ever saw. It
was a day when the patriotic and lib
erty-loving inhabitants got togethei
and built a wall. It was a good, strong
wall in the form of charter amend
ments. It fenced out certain things
forever and fenced in others which are
desirable. A horde of detractors, cor
rupt politicians, the grafters, the ma
chine men who run their machine for
the purpose of defeating the will of
the people and robbing them and whose
stock in trade )s a corrupt form of gov
ernment, stood about, presented a weak
opposition to the will of the patriotic
people ;ind, almost with tears, saw
some things go down which they had
long cherished and others rise which
were a monument to the end of their
corrupt desires.
"What have we in so many of our
American cities today? Broken walls,
broken ideals of the noble old patriots.
We have enemies within and without,
saloons, brothels, gambling dens and
all sorts of evil influences, but on the
other hand we have a noble company
coming to the front. The people, on
the whole, are desirous of the best
things. The people are having their
day and the time is not far distant
when about every city in our land will
be reared a wall more enduring than
granite, a noble, true-hearted citizen
ship which is the only thing that fur
nishes an adequate defense to any
nation."
POLICE ASKED TO AID IN
FINDING MISSING NEVADAN
Quarreled Over Money Matters and
Disappeared More Than Twelve
Months Ago
Information concerning the present
whereabouts of Edward Kursch or
Kirsch is wanted by Capt. W. L. Cox
of the Nevada state police, who has
been asked by the relatives of the
missing man to assist in finding him,
A letter was received by the Los An
geles police department yesterday ask
ing that a lookout for the man be kept.
Kursch, who is sometimes known as
O. F. Kirsch. has been missing for
more than a year. He was last heard
of at Millers, New, where he drove a
four-mule team, being engaged in haul
ing supplies from Tonopah for a man
named Sam Smith.
The two men are thought to have
had a quarrel over money matters Oc
tober 19, 1907. Since that date neithe*
has been heard of.
Kirsch is a German and is described
as being 45 years old, 5 feet 7% inches
in neight and weighing about 155
pounds. He has *a light complexion,
a small nose and one shoulder-blade
protrudes. He is both a miner and a
shoemaker.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 15. 1909.
IGNORE OWNERS'
INSURANCE RISK
ARCHITECTS PREFER EFFECT
TO SAFETY
GINGERBREAD CONSTRUCTION IS
THORN TO UNDERWRITERS
Metal Window Factory to Be Started
in Lbs Angeles—Fire-Tested
Article May Raise the
Local Standard
Adequate fire protection in all kinds
of building construction has long been
a much mooted subject between own
ers, architects and the national board
of fire underwriters, and it is a subject
which in many cases has been only
too lightly passed over by the archi
tects in preferring architectural effect
to the adequate protection of that
share of the owners' risk which he
must assume in all buildings, even
though the insurance companies carry
a portion of it for him. The national
board of fire underwriters is decidedly
antagonistic to that style of architec
ture known as "gingerbread," and
overlooking those factors of safety that
if properly taken care of would mate
rially reduce insurance premiums.
With a view to giving both the insur
ance company and the owner a square
deal the national board of fire under
writers has laboratories established at
Chicago for the testing of all classes of
building material, and when such test
passes their requirements those ma
terials so. passed are listed and are
given credits according in their judg
ment as they deserve.
A. C. Rulofson, president of the Ru
lofson metal window works of San
Francisco, spent the greater part of a
week in Los Angeles considering the
advisability of establishing a branch
factory here for the manufacture of
its product.
Fireproof Authority
Mr. Rulofson is looked upon as one
of the foremost authorities on fireproof
window construction and he believes
that the southern country offers splen
did inducements for capital invested in
a plant to exploit this new field. San
Francisco learned its lesson and is
profiting thereby in the proved de
mands for fireproof windows that aro
fireproof, and a large number of the
largest buildings have been installed
throughout with windows which are
indorsed and made under the personal
supervision of the national board of
fire underwriters of the Pacific coast.
Los Angeles capital is beginning to
realize that fireproof windows in
dorsed by the board of underwriters
will carry the maximum number of
credits and insure an appreciable de
crease in insurance premiums.
The manufacturers of wire glass do
not recommend ;ts use in wooden
sashes which are metal covered, be
cause experience has demonstrated that
in every case where they have been
put to the test the flames attack the
wooden core and the metal covering is
of little if any use in retarding the fire
and the wire glass falls out and af
fords practically no more protection
than plate glass.
The owner is the most vitally inter
ested person in this matter. It is often
that engineers and architects are dis
posed to sacrifice the interests of the
owners by ignoring the underwriters'
specifications, rather preferring archi
tectural effect to utility. The owners
prefer, when they are posted, utility
to appearance, because the artistic ef
fect so much desired by architects and
engineers often causes the owner a
great deal of money in the first cost
and is a continuous expense as long as
the building stands on account of in
creased insurance rates.
Improperly Constructed
Mr. Fitzpatrick, who is one of the
foremost insurance engineers in the
country, makes the statement in Ap-'
pleton's Magazine for December, 1908,
that 73 per cent of all the damage done
by fire to buildings other than that
in which it originates is attributable to
improperly constructed windows. More
than that, 48 per cent of the entire
fire loss of the country is traceable to
lack of window protection. Many ar
chitects and owners have been building
under a false theory in this matter. It
is a great mistake to conclude that any
metal windows are "good enough."
Poorly constructed metal -windows
have been proved by the national board
of fire underwriters as inferior to good
wooden windows for the reason that
when exposed to heat poor metal win
dows quickly fail, the weight of the
wire glass causing them to warp and
come apart and the glass falls to the
street. This is a fact that is not gen
erally recognized, and it is predicted
that many of the so-called fireproof
windows installed in San Francisco will
prove a dire disappointment when put
to the test. , .
To illustrate the point of the saving
to be made by securing minimum in
surance rates through the installation
of standard underwriters' windows the
following will suffice:
Suppose that a building is equipped
with ordinary wood sash windows cost
ing $75,000; contents of building valued
at $100,000; total, $175,000. If this would
be insured at the full value at the rate
of $1.50 per $100, the insurance pre
mium would be $2625 per year, which
would be a fixed permanent charge
every year. Suppose that a standard
underwriters' window were substituted
for the wooden window at an extra cost
of about $3000. thereby enabling the
reduction of the insurance rate to $1
per $100.
Reduces Insurance
The yearly insurance charg© would
then be $1780 on the valuation of $178,
--000 and a saving of $845 a year. In less
than four years the additional cost of
the fireproof windows would be saved
and every year therefore this saving
would be "velvet."
The United States government to
day requires about eight pages of speci
fications covering hollow frame win
dows, and these specifications go
minutely into details, so that every
step of the construction is amply pro
vided for by tests that have proved fire
retardant qualities.
The establishing of this plant at Los
Angeles will prove the advent of a
new building era in the south, and it
is thought that it will meet with such
approval and acceptance by owners
and architects alike.
The Modern Way
He was an old-fashioned father and
he had driven his daughter forever
more from his door. It was snowing
at the time and the wind howled and
the night was dark. In fact, all the
stage incidentals were there except the
slow music to exit.
Did the girl despair? Did she pull
her faded little shawl over her head
and stagger forth into the bleak and
unforgiving world?
Not much.
She made a bee'line for the office of
a sharp and resourceful lawyer, who
found little trouble a few weeks later
in having the hard-hearted old father
committed to the asylum for the senile
minded.—Cleveland Plain Dealer.
MUSIC
AT last sentiment in favor of popular
Sunday afternoon concerts is crys
talizlng, and the Gamut club, rep
resented by a committee of which Win.
Edson Strobride is chairman, will soon
announce a series of high grade con
certs to be given in Gamut club aud
itorium Sunday afternoons. It is hoped
that arrangements can be completed
for the opening concert the first Sun
day in March.
Believing that a demand for enter
tainment of this nature exists in Los
Angeles similar to that which has been
so happily met in the larger eastern
cities this Gamut club committee is
arranging for a series of twelve solo
concerts with music, both instrumental
and vocal, and by the best of local
talent.
The arrangement is only tentative,
and as soon as the attendance warrants
the change may be developed into a
project so large that it will demand a
downtown location as large as Temple
auditorium.
Too much cannot be said in favor of
this movement, and assistance in
financing the scheme from public
spirited citizens, will be gratefully ac
cepted by the men who are taking the
initiative in the matter.
The nineteenth free concert of the
First Methodist Episcopal Sunday
school orchestra is to take place to
night in the church, Hill and Sixth
streets, under the direction of E. B.
Valentine, with the assistance of Helen
E. Bosbyshell, reader; Jennie L. Jones,
clarinetist, and Oscar Rust with his
wonderful electro bells.
The orchestra of thirty-five instru
ments will render a selection from
Tannhauser, the music of Jacoboskv's
comic opera, "Erminie," closing with
the Maritano overture.
The electro bells, an invention of Mr.
liust, to be heard in public for the
first time on this occasion, consist of :t
set of pipes mounted on a lyre-shaped
frame, and with a set of wires extend
ing and connecting the pipes to a key
board similar to that of a violin. In
stead of a bow, electric hammers at
tached to the wires strike the pip^s
when the fingers press the keyboard.
There is a lever to adjust the volume,
and the instrument is said to be a" most
Ingenious invention.
Archibald Sessions is having his
seventy-second organ recital Wednes
day afternoon in Christ church, with
Waller Seager, baritone, as soloist.
Mr. Sessions will play a group from
the early French and German schools,
by Pachelbel, Dandrieu, Clerambault
and Bach; the Lavotta Suite Elegiaque
and Dubois' "In Paradisum" and "Fiat
Lux."
Mr. Seager will sing Van de Water's
"The Publican."
The third concert of Immanuel Pres
byterian orchestra will be given Thurs
day evening. Director R. J. Nichols
will present two of his orchestra's solo
ists, Miss Jessie B. Doyle, clarinetist,
and Harold Walberg, violinist.
MODERN SCIENCE AND
THEOLOGY COMPARED
Edward Adams Cantrell Contrasts
Primitive Cosmogenies with In
finities Disclosed by Tele
scope and Microscope
Edward Adams Cantrell lectured yes
terday afternoon at Mammoth hall on
the "Breakdown of Protestantism." He
said in part:
"The first force that I shall call at
tention to as undermining the founda
tions of orthodoxy is the new knowl
edge. The Bible opens with the sen
tence: 'In the beginning God created
the heavens and the eairth.' The new
knowledge knows nothing of a begin
ning. It knows no creationism. The
Bible says the earth was without form.
It would be a strange material object
that had no form.
"The Mosaic cosmogony is the same
as all primitive cosmogonies. The earth
is a small thing, planned as man's dwell
ings are planned; at first a sort of
tabernacle, with the sky a tightly
stretched canopy over the e&rth plane.
"At first the gods are depicted as oc
cupying the higher portions of the tent
floor—the hills and the mountains. All
the makers of the early religions got
their revelations on the hills and moun
tain tops.
"After a while the cosmic plan rose
to the dignity of a building, with up
stairs and basement. The gods moved
upstairs. A ladder seemed sufficient
for a stairway. Jacob's ladder, on
which he saw angels ascending and
descending, had its counterpart in
nearly all the oriental religions.
"Le Conte has well said that 'astron
omy brought to us the conception of in
finite space, and geology emphasizes for
us the infinity of time.'
Evidence of Science
"We have outgrown the child thinking
of the world. What astronomy does for
us in the thought of creationism geology
reinforces in our thought of the earth's
age. Paleontology comes with its
story of extinct forms; biology parallels
this and embryology shows the indi
\idunl recapitulating the age long story.
"Ethnology tells us that there never
has been a golden age. Man was not
created perfect. Man has come up, a3
his own works show, from the savage;
trom the sub-man to the highest man
of today.
"Genetic psychology gives us the
story of the mind, beginning with the
vegetative type, with activities so near
ly like those of the plant that we char
acterize them as vegetative.
"To maintain the historicity of Gene
sis today is as absurd as to claim his
torical accuracy for Ali Baba a"nd the
forty thieves.
"You send your boys and girls to
school. They cannot take the first les
sons in any natural or humanistic
science without having their faith in
these old religious interpretations
shaken. Your state universities arc
godless and infidel.
"All this is fundamental, for on the
genetic story is based the entire Chris
tian system. Without Adam's fall there
is no need of Christ or the vicarious
atonement. With the removal of the
foundation the superstructure falls."
Next Sunday's lecture will be on
"Science or Christian Science."
Discretion
Dives had made himself very wealthy
by oppressing his neighbors, and the
latter, grown poor concurrently, were
wont to gather at his gate each morn
ing to clamor for bread.
But Dives, though touched, did not
lose his head.
"I musn't make paupers of these un
fortunates!" he exclaimed, and was
universally applauded for his discretion
when he offered to give a stone, pro
vided the beneficiaries of his bounty
first got another stone elsewhere.—

Does Your Advertising Really Represent

How does your store appear, in the com

trayal of Historic Irving Crea
tion—Weird Sailor Man
Appears
LEMUEL PARTON
The last ten years seem to have put
almost as much of a crimp in Rip Van
Winkle as it has in Old King Alcohol
and the mash vat. A very severe lady
with an empress dowager coiffure, in
the third row at last night's perform
ance at the Majestic, remarked very
audibly that. Gretchen "done just ex
ackly right" when she chased Rip out
into the rain at the end of the second
act, and a number of other women
were heard to agree with . her! The
men weakly acquiesced. Poor old Rip
couldn't seem to get a bit of sympathy.
That shows what local option and suf
fragist agitation will do.
• Thomas Jefferson, rather oppressive
ly overshadowed by his father's name,
Rives . a finished and artistic portrayal
of the historic Jeffersonian character,
carefully drawn in points of detail,
but by no means so appealing as his
father's creation. Miss Rosalie De
Vaux's Gretchen is excellent, as is
William Freeman's Derrick Yon Beek
man. With this one trinity of chalk
marks, the score in favor of the pro
duction ends. The rest are blanks. In
point of staging and costuming the
show seems to have been an adapta
tion for the kerosene circuit of about
twenty-five years ago, certainly de
signed with small respect for the intel- j
ligence of the audiences for which it I
was intended. If Heindrich Hudson, j
the sailor who comes home and
straightens things out, had been
dressed in a stiff ruff and a martin
gale, his costume would not have been
more of an anachronism than the one
in which he appeared. Heindrich
prances shamelessly out in the uniform
of an American midshipman of today,
with the letters "U. S. S. Alabama" on
his cap. This for Rip Van Winkle's
time! The mountain gnomes are got
ten up with the subtlety of a depart
ment store Santa Claus.

The Ferris HaVtman company frisks
gayly through "The Ameer," the third
of Victor Herbert's musical creations
to be given in Los Angeles within the
last two weeks. The production is de
cidedly the liveliest and most spirited
of the recent Hartman output. Miss
Christine Nielsen showed herself a val
uable addition to the cast. Miss Niel
sen's assets 'are a clear, girlish voice,
pleasing personality, a rakish swagger
and a fascinating grin. She uses them
all to advantage and was glad-handed
joyously by the audience, somewhat
bored during the last few weeks by the
spasms of the chorus principals.
Emil Kruschke, while apparently lim
ited in his range of histrionic interpre
tation, shows unmistakable skill and a
clear perception of the requirements of
good character acting in his sketch of
th« fussy old chamberlain, Heezaburd.
Walter De Leon contributes an enter
taining bit in his song, "I Want to Find
a New One," and the "Clancy" song
by the Ameer and male chorus was
more than pleasing in its mellifluous
blend of heart wail tenor and barber
shop bass. v
The costumes and staging of the play
are the best so far of the Hartman
engagement.

FIREMEN KEPT BUSY
BUT LOSS IS SMALL
WARMING THE BED RESULTS
IN TRIFLING BLAZE
Unoccupied House Damaged to the
Extent of $500, Tramps, It Is
Thought, Being the
Guilty Parties
Sunday was a strenuous day for the
fire department, which was kept busy
the greater part of the day answering
alarms. The fires were of an unim
portant nature, and in no case did the
damage amount to more than $500.
A hot brick placed between the
sheets in a bed at the home of Mrs.
A. A. Boal, 1228 "West First street, set
fire to the bed clothes and resulted in
a loss of $50 to the carpet and furnish
ings. Mrs. Boal wished to warm the
bed and adopted the hot brick method.
A fire, thought to have been started
by tramps, caused a loss of $500 to an
unoccupied story-and-a-half frame
dwelling at 1622 West Jefferson street
yesterday morning. The property is
owned by C. M. Latimer and has been
vacant for some time. Tramp« it is
believed, sought shelter from the cold
night air and built a fire. The flames
were discovered by persons living
nearby and an alarm was turned in.
The matter was reported to the police
and investigations are being made.
A defective gas stove set fire to the
