RETURNS AFTER ABSENCE
OF TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
Miner Who Has Been Operating in
British Columbia and Alaska Is
u» Astounded at Growth
After an absence of twenty-five
years Maurice Lewis, who has been
successfully prospecting In British Co
lumnla and Alaska, returned yesterday
to Los Angeles for a brief visit.
Lewis, who wax one of the pioneer
settlers In Los Angers, left when i
young man still in hi* 'teens, and he
told a Herald reporter that the enorm
ous growth of Los Angeles since ha
went away was one of the greatest
surprises of his life.
"When I lived in Los Angeles," he
said, "it was a struggling young
town, and 1 can hardly realize that It
is the same city. I feel lost, and the
only place that appears at all familiar
Is about the Plaza. When I was in
Los Angeles the business of the city
rentered entirely about the Plaza.
There were at that time some wooden
frame buildings at Seventh and Main
streets, where there are now sub
stantial business blocks. Further
south on Main street the city was un
developed and stretched out like a bar

five years ago, I have mined success

BAUMGARDT LECTURES ON
SPAIN AND THE ALHAMBRA
Architecture, and Especially Moorish
Works of Art, Compared with
"Sunny Spain and the Alhambra"
was the topic of an interesting lecture
given last night by B. P. Baumgardt
at Symphony hall before a large and
The subject, together with the many
beautiful views of Spanish and Moor
ish architecture, gave the speaker
many opportunities to compare the
Spanish life, and especially its archi
tecture, with that of California.
Mr. Baumgardt is a great admirer of
the Moors, and In his lecture last night
paid a high tribute to their work in
uphill. Since their expulsion, he said,
Spain had brought forth no great men.
Forty-four per rent of the population
of Spain are illiterate, all the univer
sities and libraries founded by the
Moore have been suppressed and much
of the beautiful Moorish architecture
has been marred in Its adaptation to
the uses of Christianity.
Speaking of the intellectual side of
Spanish life, the lecturer said there
was not a single public library In
Madrid, the capital of Spain, during
the eighteenth century.
The views of the Alhambra and of
the city of Granada were especially
charming and instructive. Many re
productions from the little known art
gallery of the Prado, containing works
by Valesquez, Murlllio, Raphael and
many other famous paintings, were
shown, together with views of typical

Us charm since the piece was seen In
Los Angeles a year ago. The present
production at the Majestic theater is
embellished by several bright new

George Broadhurst's new play, "The
Dollar Mark," will have Its first pro
duction on any stage at the Belasco to

fortnight have been conducted under
the personal supervision of the author.
Last night and during the early hours
of this morning Lewis Stone tnd the
other Belasco players gave a complete
performance of "The Dollar Mark,
which was witnessed by only Mr.
Broadhurst and Mr. Blackwood. The
audience tonight promises to be one of

have ever attended the premiere of a'
play in Los Angeies. The Union league
will have its membership represented
in the audience to the number of 180,
and the California and Jonathan clubs
have been liberal purchasers of blocks
of seats for the opening presentation.
"The Dollar Mark" Is attracting a con

ness from Following Trade
Suffering Intensely from muscular
rheumatism and confined to his room,
being for the greater part of the time In
bed In an old shack at the rear of the
lot at 430 South Cates street, lives Wil
liam Dana Carr, a war veteran.
Mr. Carr, when seen by a Herald re
porter, said It was his great desire to
get back to the Soldiers' home, from
which he had been released about three
years ago. He has been at his present
place about one year, and has been un
able for several months to attend to the
Jewelry work at which he has eked out
meager subsistence in connection with
his pension of $20 a month. His only as
sistant is William Fritz, a laborer,
who provides his meals and bunks on
a couch in the room with Mr. Carr.
Mr. Carr says he Is 85 years of age.
He is very decrepid, suffers much pain
and complains of sleepless nights. He
Is quite forgetful and can only relate
Incidents of his life with considerable
Following Is the substance of his own
words in relating a portion of his earlier
career on the Colorado river:
"When I was in Guaymas, Sonora, in
'48, a stranger touched me on the arm
and asked if I lived in that city. I re
plied that I had lived there for some
time. He said he had just arrived in
town and was a stranger. Ho had a
horse and mule with a packing outfit,
and wanted a place to stop over night.
I took him to a Mexican house. He
gave his name as Dr. James Lincoln of
St. Louis, Mo. He said he had a scheme
on foot to go to the Colorado river and
start a ferry boat, and asked If I had
the means and wanted to join him In
the undertaking. I told him that I had
on hand only $500. He didn't object to
that amount, and after due conside
ration we decided we would go Into the
"Next morning we bought tools to
build the ferry boat, and supplied our
selves with provisions to start on the
tr<" of about -.00 miles to our destina
tion. We found an old Mexican packer
with ten mules, and engaged him for $50
to take us to the Colorado river. We
had great difficulty in getting the help
we needed, but we blundered on a big
.six-foot negro who proved to be a pro
fessional 'whip sawer,' and he pulled
us through many hard places.
"On arriving at our destination we
found an old canoe and a few strag
gling Indians. We bought the canoe,
packed our traps in it and crossed the
"At a distance of half a mile from
the river we were compelled to cut big
trees and roll them down to the river
bank with which to build our boat.
"We made our ferry boat, went into
the ferry business and for six months
met with great success, coining money.
But our fortune was changed by the
coming of a rough gang of fourteen
outlaws, whose leader was John Glan
ton, a notorious bandit.
"Glanton ordered us to go into part
nership with him and his gang, or he
would take the ferry boat from us \m
force. We saw that our olily show was
to concede to his demands. The busi
ness brought money hand over fist,
but much of It was squandered by the
gang. At one time a big lot of whisky
was brought in and a great carousal
was the result. I saw how things were
going, and at different times I buried
money amounting to $12,000. Several
years afterward I dug it up and went
into the jewelry business in Los Ange
les. But to return to the ferry busi
ness. It so happened that two of the
crew ani myself were away some dis
tance from the river cutting trees when
a gang of wild Indians came whooping
down on the others at the ferryboat
and killed them all. To make a long
story short, I am the only one remain
ing alive of that gang of seventeen.

Hence "The Never Never Land,"
which is the sketch which Miss Helen
Grantley will present here today by
Zangwill, is his introduction to Los
Angeles as a writer of the drama.
The sketch is declared to be a weird
one, quite in line with Zangwill's fic

tinge. It tells of a woman who hus a
past and who, in her dying moments
re-enacts it. This vision Is shown on
the stage, and Is highly dramatic and
intense. As to the actuality of such
happenings at the death moment, doubt
may arise, as none returns to tell of
them, but, granting the premise, the
dramatic effect cannot be questioned.
Miss Grantley, who plays the leading
role In the sketch, was chosen by Zang
