King of Portugal
American Firm Appointed Piano Makers
to the Royal Courts of Portugal. This
makes Seventeen Royal Appointments
held by Steinway & Sons.
A cablegram was received Saturday last
from Lisbon, announcing: that King Man
uel of Portugal has appointed Steinway
C&, Sons piano manufacturers to the court
of Portugal. This brings the total num
ber of royal appointments now held by
Steiaway C& Sons up to seventeen, and
is certainly a tribute to the American
piano, of which every citizen of this coun
try can weil feel proud. In many of the
Royal Courts the Steinway piano is not
only used by the King but by the Queen,
and the Crown Prince and Princess, in
their private apartments, thus manifest
ing their individual liking for this creation
of a republican country. This appoint
ment, following so many others from
Royal Courts, is unquestionably the high
• cst form of tribute that can be paid to the
excellence of the Steinway product. It
is in harmony with the position the Stein
way piano has won among leading artists
and "the uncrowned kings" and promi
nent personalities in the United States
and in foreign countries. '*
Prices $575 to $1650
We ace sole Steinway representatives for this locality. Prices
$575 to $1650. Grands, Vertegrands and Uprights — exact
Eastern prices with bare cost of freight and handling added.

Many who have signed the petition
have asked that their names be with
drawn. They declare they were told
the petition was only for an ordinance
to be passed by the council and did not
understand that it was an initiative
and demanded a special election.
The Royal Arch and the Whole
salers are opposed to the movement
and have been using their influence
with their friends to prevent it grow

Mr. J. G. Vance, the well known
druggist, formerly at Seventh and
Figueroa, opened his new store at
Eighth and Spring yesterday. The
throngs that crowded the new estab

mous in proclaiming it the most beau
tiful drug store in the city and the
prices at which goods- were sold leave
no doubt as to where to find the best
values in drugs and sundries.
Mr. Vance has had years of experi
ence in the drug business and has dis
played his knowledge in the perfect
appointments, many conveniences and
utilities of his new store.
With the new stock of merchandise
and courteous treatment extended,
everyone who visits the store is as
sured perfect satisfaction.
Among the many attractive features
of the new store is a commodious rest
room with telephones, writing table,
city directory and other conveniences
for ladies.
The opening yesterday proved a
great success. Thousands of custom

beautiful decorations and hear the
music as well as to take advantage of

velous Displays
It was noted without tearful regret'
last evening that m,any of the well
known racing men who have been mak
ing Los Angeles their winter headquar
ters, were packing up their few belong
ings and were busy treking out of town.
Around the Hollenbeck, Lankershim,
Alexandria^ and the Angolus, however,
there was but slight traces of an air
of gloom apparent, as it was generally
admitted that the absence of the rac
ing profession would speedily restore
an air of peace and quiet to this city,
such as it has not enjoyed for several
All this strikes me as moro than odd,
as when I was in New York recently
the prevalent opinion among the class
of wise people who are supposed to
know quite a bit about such matters
that the moment the race track closed
in this city the greater part of the
floating population would decamp
with ti.
That such Is not likely to be the case
is apparent from the way the local
tradesmen are going about the task of
displaying their salable articles in the
show windows along the principal busi
ness thoroughfares. Yesterday after
noon there were more people on the
street than at the same hour last week,
all of which goes to demonstrate, and
In a conclusive manner at that, that
the people of this city care practically
nothing whether there ls*such a thing
as a race meet held here or not.
In fact the promoters of the local
racing association are now bewailing
the lack of interest showered upon their
enterprise by the real home folks of
this city. They declare without reser
vation that had the people of Los An
gelea showed even the slightest Inter
est In the furtherance of the racing
game here there would not have been
an anti-racing law passed in this state.
However, now that it is all over It
will be a matter of much interest to
note the exact element of depreciation,
both in the matter of population and
the weekly bank statement, as is issued
with great regularity every Saturday.
Another ne*f feature was added to
the Hamilton pharmacy last night in
the shape of a revolving electric sign,
which claimed the attention of the pass
ers-by at Fourth and Spring streets.
Tlip design is a new one, one circle
revolving in an opposite direction to a
smaller circle, the whole forming one
huge lighted transparency.
Over in the mining exchange in the
Hellman building yesterday morning I
discovered a number of eagle-eyed pro
moters whom I have encountered about
town during the past week. I noticed,
however, that they were not dealing
very extensively in any of the listed
stocks, but were contenting themselves
with the utterance of supposedly sage
remarks concerning the different values
represented on the board.
Next week these same promoters will
be busy explaining to the unfortunate
victim who may be compelled to listen
Just how near they came to picking up
thirty or forty thousand of such and
such a stock on Saturday.
This mining proposition Is certainly
a great thing to keep away from.
I Intended presenting a list of live,
wideawake manufacturers in this col
umn today, but after some, considera
tion I determined that It would be just
as well for me to wait a bit until I
discover whether after all they are as
bright and up to date as I at first
figured them to be.
In a couple of days there will be a
couple things In this column which will
appeal directly to the ladies. I have
run across a little story which in its
telling will cause some consternation
and alarm to dwell in the minds of a
few people located here, who may not
exactly appreciate the story as it is
Watch The Herald and catch this
story. It will be worth your while, par
ticularly if you are a resident of the
southwest section.
Several automobile dealers 'phoned
me yesterday in reference to my state
ment that within a short time there
would be seen on the streets of this city
not fewer than seventy-five taxicabs.
The main query was as to where I re
ceived my information.
That is one of the features of this
column lam keeping under cover. That
there will be seventy-five taxicabs In
operation here within a very short peri
od there is> no doubt, and my suggestion
to the worried automobile dealers is
that they get in line and follow the gen
eral news of the day, and then per
haps they will be able to keep up with
current events as they happen, and at
the same time get an inkling of what is
about to happen in the particular field
In which they are engaged.
Harry Loomis, proprietor of the Hotel
Angelus, sprung an entirely new one on
me yesterday when he asked in all seri
ousness: "Suppose the mercury in a
thermometer registered two degrees
above zero, what would it register if it
were twice as cold?"
I figured It out half a dozen different
ways, but finally had to give it up as
somebody rushed Into the hotel and told
me that my youthful assistant, Walter
S. Keller, had just slipped on a banana
peel and sprained his thumb.
This afternoon I Intend taking a look
at the beaches around this section of
the country. At one place a distin
guished mining man has asked me to
call and look over his prospectus. Fun
ny how those promoters are anxious to
get into print, but then —they are not
getting Into this column until I discover
something worth while for the public
to ponder over.
That's all for today. Don't wocry,
and above all don't bother about .the
aqueduct. __^^^^_

National Existence Threatened by
Weakening of Domestic Ties in
Cities, Says Speaker in Elo.
quent Address
"The Problem of a Modern City," an
Rev. S. M. Hughes of the First Metho
dist church of Pasadena expounded R
to the City club at the regular meeting
of that body yesterday, is the rapid
growth that destroys the home life and
forces the people that make It a city
into the hotels and boarding houses.
"The home life," said Rev. Mr.
Hughes, "is the foundation of the na
tion, und the destruction of this home
life has had a deteriorating effect on
politics." He had no solution to offer
for this problem, but declared he was
optimistic through knowledge and faith.
"We know," said Rev. Mr. Hughes,
"that conditions today are much better
than they have ever been in the past.
We have no such conditions as pre
vailed in ancient Greece and Rome
when dishonesty was the common busi
ness practice and lust was elevated to
the plane of religion.
"The city always has played an im
portant part In the civilization of
the world," said Rev. Mr. Hughes.
"Great empires have been dominated by
their cities. Not only have cities exer
cised a monopoly on the politics of a
country but also on the moral life. In
the early history of our country it
seemed the country would dominate the
city. We were then peculiarly an agri
cultural people. But. steam and electric
ity have changed all that. These forces
have solved the problem of transporta
tion. It is very doubtful if even the
countries of ancient times had cities
of a greater population than a million.
That was because the area of such a
city was necessarily restricted. Men
could not live at a greater distance
than four miles from their work, for
they could not take longer than is re
quired to walk that far to and from
their daily toil. When horses were
used for transportation the area o(
cities increased and now that steam
and electricity offer transportation we
can have cities forty miles each way
from the business district. When the
problem of aerial navigation and the
gyroscope rail are perfected we may
have cities extending a hundred miles
in every direction.
Immigration Problem Pressing
"The immigration problem is one that
confronts us. We are now getting a
type of immigrants not nearly so desir
able as those who formerly came to our
shores. In the last five years six and
one-half millions of people have come
to this country to make their homes.
All the invasions and migrations of
ancient times were but picnic parties
compared to the great volume of people
who immigrate to our shores every
year. Many of these people are not the
best If we do not feed our national
life with the best quality of foreign foot!
It is bound to tell on us after a while.
Most of these people are crowded into
"The city is the most highly organized
factor In society. The fountain head of
every great movement is the city. Art,
science, literature, politics and religion
have their centers in tho> city. But
what has been the effect on our national
life by our cities? Certainly to the
present time we cannot say the in
fluence has been wholesome. As well
as being the head of all things good it
is also tho head of all things evil,
boodlo, graft, lust, the saloon and the
Home Is Foundation
"The foundation ot our civic life is
the American home. Both church and
state are buik on the home. When any
thing touches the home it is bound to
have its effect on our national ex
"In just the same proportion as the
city increases the home increases. The
boarding house population grows as the
city grows, and that is bad. When the
growth of the city means the deteriora
tion of the home life It is a serious mat
ter. But we must not be pessimistic,
for we have knowledge that today is
better than yesterday and we have
John D. Works, the new president of
the City club, presided yesterday. Past
President Hunsaker made a brief ad
dress of farewell on his retirement, 111
which he thanked the club members for
their staunch support during the past
year, which has resulted in so many of
the reforms for which the City club
stands. '

Grandma's Pride of Long Ago
Back Amongst Us Again
Styles do change some these days.
The 'latest craze now is ye olde style rag
rugs and no home from now on can
boast of being artistic without a good
ly supply of the above mentioned. The
beauty of it is that you don't have to
be a millionaire to enjoy the comforts,
as they are sold so cheaply that all
may participate. I wandere-j into the
Rug Department of Lane's on Broad
way the other day and saw a great
assortment of these rugs—the real old
fashioned kind that Grandma used to
make. They were in all colors, nicely j
made and, as everybody knows, they
will wear like iron and always clean,
for when soiled a cold bath will revive
and bring them back to their original
glory. Lane's have a splendid show-
Ing. I saw some real pretty ones, 24x36,
for 75c; also large ones, 27x54, for $1.25
each. I also noticed a pile of the new
Washable Bath Room Rugs in many
pretty designs; the 18x36 size will be
offered tomorrow for 85c each. It will
certainly pay anyone to take advan
tage of Lane's opening sale of these
pretty rugs tomorrow, as the prices are
cut very low and the assortment is
complete. A detailed account is given

What's the Definition of Dry Cleaning?~"GasaUne"
It derives this term from the fact that gasoline evaporates
readily, and since oil is an ingredient of gasoline it stands to
reason that after a garment is cleaned by this old-fashionei.^
process about 30 per cent of this oil is retained in the fabric, -
which has a tendency to collect dust and cause unforeseen
. spots to return.
Why Not Try the Latest and Best? Compressed
Air Dry Cleaning
Our "chemical steam" process which is used subsequent to the
compress air operation disposes of spots and stains perma
nently, requiring no brushing or rubbing, and is absolutely not
injurious to the texture of the garment, in fact it makes it prac
tically new.
Weare the discoverers and exclusive owners of; this trade
secret and propose to give our customers the full benefit of this
admirable process. No one can clean white and cream serges j-J
or delicate colored broadcloths like we can. » Give us a trial and
we'll confirm all above assertions. That's what tells. Our
prices are very reasonable, so don't worry. \,';
