ELBERT HUBBARD
LAUGHS AT LAW
FRA ELBERTUS RIDICULES THE
LEGAL PROFESSION
DELIVERS LECTURE BRISTLING
WITH EPIGRAMS
Roycrofter Shows He Has Little Use
for Savants of Any Kind,
Especially Meta
physicians
Elbert Hubbard, bristling with epi
grams and sizzling like a big steam
valve with pent up Roycrofter philoso
phy, addressed a large audience at the
Simpson auditorium last evening.
Fra Elbertus handed out his usual
assortment of short arm Jabs at the
world, the flesh and the devil, selecting
the legal profession as the unhappy
exemplar of all of these three unde
sirables. "When you want to do any
thing illegal, go and consult a lawyer,"
he Baid. "I once took a course In law,
but I am happy to say that it was
compulsory."
The belligerent Fra has little use for
savants of any kind—unless they are
Roycrofters—and metaphysicians came
in for a vigorous drubbing. "Meta
physics," he said, 'is the explanation
of something without the bother of un
derstanding It. The vital things of
life," he continued, "are inseparably
connected with life and with work.
The individual who does not have a
good lime in his work will not be hap
py. You do not find happiness in some
remote, ecstatic condition. It is found
dally, like the manna that dropped out
of the skies.
"Strong men are the sons of good
mothers, of free mothers. When moth
ers are enslaved and oppressed their
sons become grafters, liars and para
sites."
Tracing the progress of the world in
following his theme, "The March of the
Centuries," Fra Elbertus, in following
the evolutionary progress of society,
showed the gradual growth of moral
ity and Justice, through different na
tions and different Institutions. Bib
lical allusions were deftly coupled with
smart modern phrasing, and Nineveh
and Tyre served for the usual resound
ing oratorical flight In pointing our
the moral in the downfall of wicked
cities.
The audience was keenly alert to Mr.
Hubbard's humor and eloquence and
his address frequently was interrupted
with enthusiastic applause.

THINK FIRE IN STORE
OF INCENDIARY ORIGIN
Grocer Finds Oil.Soaked Boxes in
Vicinity of the
Blaze
What is believed to be an Incendiary
fire was discovered last night in the
grocery of L. Herrick at 100 North Bel
mont avenue. The fire, which was
quickly extinguished, was burning
among some oil soaked boxes in the
rear of the store, and oil had been scat
tered about the place for some distance
around the blaze.
Mr. Herrick had closed his place but
a short time before and could give no
explanation of how the fire started.
The building, a frame structure, is
owned by J. G. Gilson. The damage is
estimated at $75.

MME. NAZIMOVA GIVES
LIGHT FRENCH PLAY
"Comtesae Coquette" Is Welcome Re.
lief After Gloom of Ibsen Dramas.
■ Actress Shows Marvelous ;
' Characterization
''.' BY LEMUEL PABTO!* „"^V;'
• Mine. Nazlmova rises out of the abys
mal | gloom of Ibsen In the 'delightful
whimsies of j Nini, "The; Comtesse Co
quette," which was given its first Los
Angeles : performance at ; the Mason
opera house last night. "Hedda Gab
ler" left such an aftermath of misery
that . Robert Bracco's comedy seemed
like . the : lifting :of a fog.. Nazimova
shows herself to be Inimitable in one
respect—ln sharp, clear, trenchant char-
acterization. While in Mini the full ex
pression of womanliness is Inhibited
by the slightly libidinous suggestion,
the character is so effulgently bright
and refreshing in comparison with Hed
da that it might be believed to be the
creation of another woman.
Nazimova is one of the few actresses
who can pose with effect. There is
such transcendent art in her carefully
composed pictures that not even the
most fastidious could find grounds to
criticise. "Cotntesse Coquette" gives
opportunity for the display of much
gorgeous drapery, and Mme. Nazimova
manages the draping bo adroitly that,
while it is not too obtrusive, it is one of
the most charming features of the per-
formance.
The play itself has little to commend
it. There is some rather smart anti
thetical phrasing and a few near-epi
grams, 'vlth a tenuity of plot and ac
tion, handled with considerable finesse
at times, but amounting in its entirety
to nothing more than bathos.
A notable piece of work is Mr. Percy
Lyndal's Glno> Ricardi. There Is an
Interesting transition In the character
in the second act, cleverly managed by
Mr. Lyndal, who is the most Intelligent
player of the men supporting Mme.
Nazlmova. Brandon Tynan does a
finished "bit of acting as Comte di Lo
renzo, although his work is marred by
heaviness and lack of subtlety and mo.
hility.
It is regrettable that a better piece
could not be found for the lighter re
lief in the distinguished Russian play
er's repertoire. Her Ibsen character
izations are so unapproachably great
that It is unfortunate that they could
not be supplemented by a strong play
of a different type.
• • •
Mrs. Jacque Martin, who takes the
part of Mrs. Julia Tesman In "Hedda
Gabler," Is the only member of the
company who has been with Mine.
Nazimova since her first appearance in
America. Mrs. Martin's husband is the
manager of "The Roundup" in New
York. She is a sister-in-law to Theo
dore Martin, a prominent attorney of
Los Angeles. Mrs. Martin's work is
exceedingly good in both "Hedda Gab
ler" and "The Doll's House."

"Princess Patience," a fairy play by
Wlllamene Wilkes, will be given at
the Mason opera house on Friday
night of next week and at a Saturday
matinee following, for the benefit of
the Brownson House settlement and
play nursery. The children of the set
tlement will appear in the play, which
will be one of the most gorgeous fatry
fantasy spectacles ever given in the
city.

Sorgt. Sebastian and the Chinatown
squad raided a gambling house on
North Los Angeles street, Chinatown,
last night and arrested Ah Wong, the
proprietor of the place, and booked him
at central station on the charge of
conducting a gambling house.
The raid waa a spectacular one and
created considerable excitement In the
Chinese quarter, several hundred Mon
golians gathering to watch the officers
as they broke their way through steel
studded and bolted oak doors to the
innermost rooms of the house.
Seven of these strong doors were
broken down by the police, who used
fire axes and sledges to break their way
through them. By tho time all of the
barriers had been broken down tha
players in the fan tan game, which had
been conducted there, had disappeared
through secret exits known only to
them, but Wong, the keeper, was found
in the place hurriedly gathering up the
evidence in the shape of paraphernalia
for conducting the game.
The prisoner, with all the tools of his
trade, was taken to the station, whero
he was released on depositing $100 cash
for his appearance in police court this
morning.

TAFT DISCUSSES
LABOR PROBLEMS
PRESIDENT MEETS GOMPERS
AND OTHER LEADERS
ANTI.INJUNCTION LAW FAVORED
BY CHIEF EXECUTIVE
Late Decisions of the Courts Strike
at the Existence of Unions—A
Cordial Conference Is
Expected
IBy Associated Press.]
WASHINGTON, April IC—President
Taft discussed the problem of the
workingman for two hours today with
the members of the executive council
of the American Federation of Labor.
The labor leaders, headed by Samuel
Gompers, called at the White House
and, according to Mr. Gompers, found
the president deeply Interested. Not
only did Mr. Taft give the spokesman
of the party all the time they desired
to lay their matters before him, but
he joined in the discussion.
In the delegation were representa
tives of most of the trades connected
with the American Federation, and
among them leaders who stubbornly
opposed Mr. Taft In the late cam
paign.
But the greeting was cordial to all.
The labor leaders • took up with the
president iju»ny problems, including
the matter of Injunction and the eight
hour law, convict labor, the recent in
dictment of labor leaders in the south
for alleged violation of the Sherman
anti-trust law, the danger of a dis
solution of all labor organizations un
der a strict interpretation of recent
supreme court decisions, thfi mainten
ance of international peace, labor
problems on the Panama canal, the
right of asylum in this country for po
litical refugees and child labor.
The president told his visitors that he
regarded an anti-injunction law as one
of the most important policies of his
administration. He added he felt he
had made his position clear on the sub
ject in his speech of acceptance last
July and had confirmed that position
in his inaugural address.
The president said he would be glad
to consult further with representatives
of organized labor.
Mr. Gompers told the president that
organized labor desired that convict
labor be regulated, not prohibited.
The idea was to prevent convict labor
coming into competition with free la
bor.
Effect of Court Decisions
The federatlonists urged the presi
dent to ask congress for an additional
appropriation for the enforcement of
the child labor law in the District of
Columbia.
Commissioner Nelll seconded this re
quest.
The federation council urged the
president to use his efforts for an ex
tension of the eight-hour law so it
will apply to contractors and sub-con
tractors furnishing materials and fit
tings for government work. '
Mr Gompers said that both Presi
dent McKinley and President Roose
velt had favored such an extension.
Mr. Taft promised to give this mat
ter special consideration.
Coming to the present status of labor
organizations, under recent decisions of
the court, tHe discussion widened. It
centered about the supreme court de
cision In the famous hatters' case, under
which certain labor union methods wera
declared to be in contravention of the
Sherman anti-trust law. Mr. Gompers
told the president that since that de
cision seventy-five men had been in
dicted in New Orleans, it being alleged
that they quit work in support of other
striking workmen.
"Under a further interpretation of
that decision," said Mr. Gompers, "labor
unions can be dissolved by any move
on the part of the federal government.
Men can be sentenced to a year in
prison and a fln« of $5000. Officers and
members of the union also can be pro
ceeded against, civilly, and threefold
damages be assessed against them in
any amount that may be complained of
by any person claiming to have suffered
by reason of men quitting work, or
withholding their patronage."
President Taft was asked If there
was any truth in the report that Amer
ican workingmen, principally laborers
belonging to American unions, were be
ing laid on* in Panama to make room
for foreigners. The president said he
had not heard of such a report and did
not believe it could be' true.

HUMAN AUTOMATON
DRAWS BIG CROWD
HAMILTON PHARMACY HAS A
NOVEL ATTRACTION
Promoters Declare Los Angeles Bank.!
era Are "Tight Wads"—Auction
House Proprietor Wonders
Why He Is Not Busy
GEORGE HARRIS DONOHUE
While over in the Alexandria Indian |
grill yesterday afternoon I met Charles
Fentun Hamilton, owner of the Hamil
ton pharmacy at 205 KasUFourth street,
where during the past-few days there
has been considerable doing in the mat
ter of energetic effort to acquaint the
passerby with the fact that thert .
un up-to-date drug store in that imme- i
diate locality.
Mr. Hamilton is well known in this:
city, and during the few moments'
conversation I had with him I discov
ered that at one time he was actively
engaged in several well known theat
rical enterprises.
Being at heart a showman, and know
ing how well the. general public likes
to be entertained, Mr. Hamilton has;
been presenting during the past week
in the window of his establishment a
young chap known the country over us
John Davidson, "the man with the cast
iron features."
All day yesterday I noticed a large
crowd collected about the front of the
Hamilton Pharmacy, all seemingly
eager to discover whether the figure in
the window was really an automaton
or just a plain, every-day sort of man.
"I hit upon the idea of having David
son in my window," said Mr. Hamilton,
"in order to let the public know that
we are in business on Fourth street. I
intend turning the business over to my
son, Julius R. Hamilton, as soon as I
get the store going in good shape, and
then It will be up to him to let the
people know that he is in town for busi
ness."
Mr. Hamilton, Jlke many others of the
more progressive merchants of this city,
discovered long ago that the average
citizen is not a mind reader, and he for
one believes in at least making an effort
to attract the attention of the purchas
ing public to his establishment.
It was more than amusing to me to
stand in the crowd in front of the
Hamilton pharmacy during the time
Davidson was enacting his role of auto
maton. Nearly every woman in the
crowd was quite sure no man could
ever maintain such a statuesque atti
tude for the period Davidson imposes
upon himself, but when he finally re
laxed the muscles of his face the wo
men as a rule hastily decamped, while
the men In the crowd gave vent to glee
ful snickers.
Several of the representative business
men upon whom I called yesterday out
lined their plans for the season Inci
dent to the Elks' convention. Many of
the merchants will soon spring unique
and original Ideas in the matter of in
dividual display and collective publicity,
all of which will undoubtedly prove of
more than passing interest to the host
of, visitors who will shortly be within
the gates of this city.
According to a well known automo
bile man in this city Los Angeles will
shortly be equipped with something
like seventy-five taxlcabs. That's a great
idea, and the only real trouble about
these machines-at the present time is
the fact that about nine-tenths of the.
population of this town don't know Just
exactly what a taxicab is.
It is understood, however, that when
the latest importations become a reality
the promoters of the project will
waken up to the fact that it might be
a good idea to say a word or two to
the public and let all interested know a
thing or two concerning the really mer
itorious features of their undertaking.
Wonder if they will do It.
The proprietor of a large South
Broadway auction house told me yes
terday that for months he had been try-
Ing every known device, except adver
tising, to induce the purchasing public
to visit his establishment.
He has the idea that all he has to do
is to hang out a red flag and make a
noise like a metropolitan baritone, and
the public will Jump in line and listen
to his music. When I asked him why
he didn't use the natural channels of
publicity to say a word or two as to
what he was trying to accomplish, he
answered drearily: "The people won't
come in here, whether I advertise or
not." •
Great idea that, and the best he ever
accomplished in the way of advertising
was to send a few boys out with hand
dodgers.
He will also waken up some day.
While In the Hotel Lankershim yes
terday morning I met a chap whom I
know pretty well. He is a promoter of
many mining propositions, yet at the
same time he was bewailing the fact
that it was next door to impossible to
get the banks of this town to loosen up
on what he declared were "gilt-edged
securities."
"The banks of this city want nothing
but gold bonds, and even then they
will not give you a dollar unless you are
willing to pay an exorbitant rate of
interest."
Funny how some of the financiers
figure percentage. The bankers of Los
Angeles are noted for their shrewdness
and business sagacity, and, as one
banker remarked to me the other day:
"If we accepted one-twentieth of the
bonds of the wild cat mining proposi
tions submitted us every day we would
not last as a banking institution long
enough to tell about it."
Chances are about even that if a
prospective borrower has the right sort
of securities he can just as readily bor
row capital here as elsewhere, as it goes
without saying the banks of Los An
geles are not in business exactly for
their collective healths.
The fame of the Los Angeles bureau
of criminal Identification has trailed
all -the way back to sleepy old Phila
delphia. In a letter which I received
yesterday Walter Abrams, chief of the
bureau of criminal identification of the
Quaker city, asked me to get several
plates which were taken in this city
several years ago, and which are now
supposed to be out of existence.
These pictures referred to by Abrams
were taken under the supervision of
Officer Bert Parker, who was in charge
of the identification bureau at that
time.
As I am no longer interested in that
feature of police trouble I am tipping
Mr. Parker to the fact that Philadel
phia is appreciative of his skill.

Where It Landed Him
With a dazed look in his bloodshot
eyes the man who had been on a jag
for a week or more and had wandered
over the country in a half delirious
condition, without know-ins where he

"Officer," he said, stopping a police
man, "what town is this?"
"Anaconda," answered the police
man.
"Then I've «ot 'em again.!" he
groaned. —Chicago Tribune.
