SPIRIT OF PATRIOTS
RULES BIG MEETING
MAYOR SEES HAPPY NEW YEAR
AHEAD OF CITY
Says There Are Better Prospects in
Sight for Los Angeles Than
Ever Before In Its
History
The spirit of patriotism prevailed at
the New Year's patriotic mass meet
ing for Greater Los Angeles held at
ilie Temple auditorium yesterday af
ternoon beginning at 3 o'clock.
|{. D. Richards conducted the meet
ing. John Douglas Walker directed
the music. Archibald Sessions presid
ed at the organ. The addresses were
limited to ten minutes.
In introducing' Mayor Alexander as
the first speaker, Mr. Richards said:
••What Mayor Alexander lacks in
platform diploriaey ho makes up in
hard work and honesty in conduct
ing the affairs of the city and he is
not for sale for any amount of gold
or silver or anything else."
Mayor Alexander said in part:
••My subject is 'A Happy New Year'
and 1 know of no city in better con
dition for a happy new year than our
own beautiful city of Los Angela*.
We can look for better prospects in
our municipality than t-ver before. The
rains will make eood crops which will
lMlpA>oth city and country, our elee
trlc Sight and other systems promise
inueh along with the great harbor.
"We have the best climate, people
and conditions to make Los Angeles
the greatest city in the world.
"I am no platform speaker as the
chairman already lias said, but I feel
that my position is to work and let
the others do the talking for they
can talk all around me."
On resuming his seat, the mayor was
presented with a beautiful floral tri
bute of red carnations.
Dr. Charles Edward Locke was the
next speaker who made an address on
"The Key Note," giving an optimistic
view of the prospects of the affairs of
the city and country.
Joseph Scott spoke in a forceful man
ner on "Patriotism In Our schools."
"This is no place for a man," said
Mr. Scott, "who has not the spirit of
patriotism for the schools ai.l institu
tions of this government."
Dr. Hugh X, Walker spoke on the
topic "Our Glorious Yesterday," giv
ing an epitome of the past history and
its advantages to the future.
Rev. Dr. S. Hecht added words of
patriotism and good will to all.
"Regarding our religious differences,"
said Dr. Hecht, "Let us remember
that, while we may not compromise
on our religious principles, we are all
aiming for the same heavenly home."
A. J. Wallace qualified his address
with the idea that his topic "A City
Set on a Hill" was applicable to the
City of the Angels.
B. J. Fleming, who was expected
to make an address on "Our Civic
Spirit," was unavoidably absent.
It. D. Richards made the closing ad
dress on the topic, "For the Coming
Generation." He held a glass of water
in his hand and repeated a poem sig
nalizing the purity of water as against
strong drink for the good of the com
ing generation. Rev. Dr. Hecht pro
nounced the benediction.

field, Then Wires Dis.
tress Signal
.Never since the house was opened
hai the Majestic theater turned away
ho many people as it did last night.
Joseph Montrosa, treasurer of the the
ater, estimates the number at close to
1600. Montrose dismissed them with a
smile un his face, but he probably
didn't relish the situation any more
tlum did his victims. Tho trouble
wasn't a "Sold Out" house, though Joe
s.iys ho could have sold it out had
the Southern Pacific railroad permitted.
It was merely that the "Forty-five
Minutes from Broadway" company was
stormbound in the vicinity of Bakers
field.
The manager of the company got a
wire through late yesterday afternoon
explaining his predicament and asking
that aeroplanes be dispatched to bring
him and his "troupe" to I,os Angeles.
Dick Ferris could not be found, how
ever, and consequently it was impos
sible to fill this order. Motor boats
were suggested, but they could have
got no nearer Bakersfleld than the
.Arroyo un-Secco, because of the rag
inii sea.
A subsequent -wire from. the north
brought the information that the com
pany was making Its way 'cross coun
try to the coast line and would arrive
here early this morning.
That's why the Majestic was dark
last night. Most of these who had
bought tickets exchanged them for per
formances lat»f in the week. Wher
ever purchasers requested it, however,
their money was refunded, a fact
which makes the Montrose smile an
achievement in facial mendacity.
The first performance of "Forty-five
Minutes from Broadway" will be given
at. the Majestic this evening with
Charley Brown in his old role of "Kid
Burns," retired prize fighter; Eliza
beth Drew as "Plain Mary" and sotne
members of the original New York
cast. The company remains through
the week, playing a bargain matinee
Wednesday and a matinee perform
ance Saturday.

Karp, late prlma donna of Thomashef
sky's People's theater, New York city,

city. Tuesday evening they will pre
sent the Yiddish musical drama, "Fath
er Love." Wednesday evening, the last
performance of the engagement, "The
New World." or "The Green Woman,"
with real Yiddish music, will be of
fered.

The Orpheum's bill this afternoon
will present five acts, all new to this
city. Eva Taylor and her players, in
cluding Lawrence Grattan, will be seen

"Night in a Monkey Music Hall," which
Is an act done entirely by monkeys,
even to the orchestra leadership. Three
other acts will be represented, to make
up the usual eight acts of the local
show.
• • • .
Owing to th limited amount of time
at the disposal of the Harry Lauder
organization, the engagement in Los
Angeles will open with a matinee Fri
day, January 7. Rut two matinees
and two night performances can be
given to this city. The. Caledonia club
has arranged a banquet in honor of
Mayor Alexander and the Lauder
party, to take place after the Friday
night performance. The Caledonians
have taken a block of 500 seats and
the president of the society, together
with the mayor will occupy a box. The
pipers of the Caledonia club and the
members of the Celtic club will meet
the Lauder company on its arrival and
escort it to the city hall, where a re
ception is planned. This is to be Scot
land's week, and the Kilties and pipers
will be abroad in the land.

The Burbank theater was too small
yesterday afternoon and again too
small last evening to accommodate all
the theater-goers who wanted to see
"The Oirl of the Golden West." At
both performances the "Sold Out" sign
was displayed in the lobby long be
fore time for the first curtain. In its
first week and despite the rains, this
play established a new record at the
Burbank. Yesterday marked the be
ginning of the second week. Miss
Frances Nordstrom, who has been suf
fering from a cold for several days, is
thoroughly recovered and her perform
ance of The Girl continues a delight
to her audiences. H. S. Duffield, ; who
was out of the cast last week owing
to the unfortunate death of his wife,
Mrs. Phosa McAllister Duffield, yester
day played his part of Ashby. Wells-

him sympathetically upon his first ap

new play, "Through A Window. This
new play, founded on the ban
Francisco earthquake, already has
proved one of the most substantial
successes of the entire theatrical
year and has attracted the attention
of the theatrical world in general. Al
ready it has created a new record for
attendance, so great being the de
mand for seats that the management
was forced to take the orchestra out ot
the pit for seven ot the ten performan
ces last week and from the box office
report last night there is every evi
dence that the same conditions will
prevail throughout this week's per
formances. The cast for the second
week will remain the saane: Mr. Stone
being seen as the young lawyer, Brad
ley Hamilton; Thais Magrame as Phil
lipa Costello, Adele Farrington in her
characterization as Lil Valera and Wil
liam Yeranee as Judge Costello. Fol
lowing the second week of "Through A
Window," Mr. Stone and his associates
at the Beloseo will give Nat C. Good
win's notable comedy success, "The
Genius" with Mr. Stone In Mr. Good
win's original role.
Manager Blackwood of the Bclasco
theater and George Broadhurst have
just concluded a deal whereby the
Belasco company will offer a season of
Broadhurst plays—a list of plays be
ing agreed upon that Includes several
of the playwright's best known works
as well as a number of plays that
have never been presented on any
stage. The first Broadhurst play to
occupy the attention of the Belasco
organization is the uncommonly suc
cessful comedy-drama of American pol
itics, "The Man of the Hour." This
will be the first time this well known
play has ever been given by a stock
company anywhere. "The Man of the
Hour" will be played at the Belasco
Monday night, January 31. A new
Broadhurst piece that will receive its
footlight baptism at the Belasco Is
"The Garden of Lies," a splendidly
stirring romantic play with a delight
ful vein of humor and a story at once
keenly interesting and entrancing. An
other new romantic play from tins
Broadhurst pen is "The Crown Prince"
a red-blooded drama with a numßer of
novel and effectively dramatic situa
tions. ("The Captain" is a new comedy
in which Willie Collier will be seen
next year. At the Belasco Mr. Stone
will be seen in the leading role of the
play.
"The Dollar Mark." which estab
lished a world's record for stock com
pany performances when it was played
for ten successive weeks at the Belasco
last' winter, will have a fine revival
with Mr. Stone and most of the Belasco
players in the same roles in which they
were seen during the memorable run
of "The Dollar Mark" a year ago. "An
International Marriage" and "The Last
Chapter" are two Broadhurst plays
that never have been given locally
and these will be included in the
Broadhurst-Belasco season as will also
several other plays from the play
wright's earliest list of successes.
Notwithstanding the fact that Car
lotta with her famous loop-the-loop
on a bicycle has been announced as
the headliner by Sullivan and Consi
dine for their new bill, opening at the
Los Angeles theater this afternoon,
she will not appear, owing to the im
mense success of the act in the north
where she is playing an extra, week's
engagement. Her place on the new hill
will be taken by Max Duffek, the fa
mous continental musical contortion
ist who has created a furore with his
exceptional act. Others on the new
bill will be the former Belasco player,
Bradlee Martin and his company. Mile.

If you want a dainty musical comedy
go and see San Toy. It opened the
week at the Grand yesterday after
noon through the excellent presenta
tion of Ferris Hartman and his big
singing company. There ara probably
not so many laughs in it as found in
several other recent productions at the
Grand, but the humor is clean and
wholesome. The music, settings arid
costumes are all good and enough local
jokes are scattered through the per
formance to make the Chinese bur
lesque by English writers quite Amer

the company stick to common ordi

and a right decent liar, getting him

enough for him.

rapidity as to kick off a shoe, almost
striking his long-nosed majesty in the
nose.
Yen How, San Toy's father (Joseph
Fogarty) appears with his six little
wives, and keeps them with him
throughout the performance, causing
some criticism of the oriental custom
among the curly heads but meeting
with entire satisfaction at the hands of
the knights of the forward rows. These
wives, however, are well behaved, look
ing real saucy and unsubdued as they
sing and take tiny steps around his ex
cellency Yen How.
Dainty San Toy
San Toy ia the daintiest part in this
I very dainty comedy. As a boy she is j
graceful and flippant, having acquired
English manners sufficient, to admit of
her taking natural steps and throwing
kisses. As a girl San Toy becomes
even more attractive and almost
modest. Miss Myrtle Dingwell keeps
her San Toy this same little care free
person throughout the two acts.
Walter DeLeon as Hobby Preston
fills the role of comic lover with his
characteristic humor and impersona
tion. Miss farmon Phillips as Poppy
Preston, Miss Muggins Davies as her
maid. Miss Anna Little as an English
girl and the chorus in its entirety are
iill good. J- W.

DROP IN MERCURY
BRINGS SNOWFALL
SAN BERNARDINO IS STILL IN
TROUBLE
Southern Pacific Only Line Able to
Send Trains to Los Angeles.
Heavy Rainfall Is
Registered
SAX BERNARDINO, Jan. 2.—The
fast drop in the temperature last night
and today, turning rain into snow on
the mountains, alone saved continued
devastation of the Btormswept valley.
Traffic into the city is almost at a
standstill, no trains moving except on
the Southern Pacific,
The Santa Fe is powerless to move
trains. Washouts on the mountain dis
trict continue to block that line. On
the road to Los Angeles via Orange the
big (ill near Ksperanza, ten miles north
of Orange, gave way today. The line
via Pasadena is still blocked. Accord
ing to information given out today all
lines will be opened tomorrow after
noon if no further rains occur.
The Salt Lake will not Operate trains
for two days. On the San Bernardino-
Riverside lin<> of the Southern Pacific
a wreck of the paper train near the
Santa Ana river bridge has that road
blocked. Waters washing from the
river under the track caused the engine
to turn over.
The mountains are covered with
snow to the foothills and on the higher
ridges is a foot in depth. Snow instead
of rain prevented the rising of tho
streams to the torrential proportions of
yesterday. No further damage will re
sult from the streams if no further
rain falls.
Today the precipation was .71 of an
inch, making 4.94 inches for the storm
and 12.83 for the season. Tonight a
heavy hail storm turned the entire town
and valley to whiteness. The ground Is
covered to a depth of two inches.

of water and life nearly extinct.
Restoratives were given, but Fox did
not respond to the treatment and died
a few minutes later. The body was
sent to the undertaking rooms of John
B, Paul, where an inquest will be hcl 1
this morning. The coroner's office was
notified, but it was learned that Fox
had been subject to heart failure, and
it is believed that while preparing for
his morning bath he was seized with a
fatal attack and fell face forward into
the water,
Fox came to Lol Angeles two months
ago. He seemed well supplied with
money, as he had refused several at
tractive offers as machinist, stating
that he did not intend to work until he
found a position that suited him.
Letters found in his pocket denoted
that his home was in Buffalo, N. V.,
where he has a mother living. Funeral
arrangements will not be made until
word has been received from Buffalo.
Fox was a tine specimen of manhood.
30 years old and 6 feet 5 inches tall, and
of a cheerful and happy disposition.
