MAYOR CHARGED
WITH BAD FAITH
STATEMENT ISSUED IN WATER
CAMPAIGN
George F. Kernaghan Says He Will
Not Vote for Bonds and De.
dares He Was Worked
For "Sucker"
PASADENA, J-n. 20.—1n spite of ef
forts of all factions, apparently, to hold
back until the last minute for the in
auguration of the municipal water i
campaign the fuses laid to the maga
zine of municipal excitement scorn to
have finally discharged the powder of ;
arg-ument today and from now until
next Wednesday, when the people vote j
upon the proposition to issue bonds in
the sum of $120,000, water Will be OB
much a topic as aviation has been.
The city sent to the voters today a
pamphlet, largely the work of City At
torney J. Perry Wood, on the water
question. It is a regular text book of
facts and <igures and is easily tin
most comprehensive pamphlet ever is
sued on municipal water as it per
tains to Pasadena. In return the men
at the so-called opposition headquarters
are also going to reach the voters
through the United States mail, their
document probably coming forth with
in the next forty-eight hours.
George F. Kernaghan came out this
afternoon in a signed statement in
which he charges Mayor Barley with
bad faith and announces that he will
not vote for the water bonds and that
he has been worked for a ".sucker,"
"which is his own choice of words. He
more than strongly intimates that when
Mayor Earley got him to accept a 1
position as one of the two to investi
gate Owens river water and its pos
sibilities for Pasadena, the mayor did
a sharp pitece of practice, Kernaghan
having resigned from the so-called op
position committee because he believed
the mayor was acting in good faith
which he, Kernaghan, has now decided
the mayor was not doing.
Kernaghan states this evening that
he Is not going back to the citizens'
committee, the name of the so-called
opposition to municipal water, and he
also says that he submitted suggestive
questions to the mayor to be used I"
interrogating Engineer Sonderegger,
that the mayor used such questions
and then did not take him, Kernaghan,
into Earley's confidence when the en
gineer made his replies. For this sea
eon Kernaghan believes that he has
been slighted and that the mayor has
not acted in good faith and in retali
ation Kernaghan says he is not going
to vote for the water bonds.

RESUME ANTI-SMOKE FIGHT
PASADENA, Jan. 20 —In spite of the
fact that a practical failure was scored
the first time the local \V, C. T. U. tried
to get an ordinance passed forbidding
smoking on the open sections of the
street cars, it is announced by the W.
C. T. U. of Paaadena that another at
tempt will be made shortly. This ef
fort to stop stroking will be stoutly
resisted. The strongest argument that
will be made for it will be that Los
Angeles has an ordinance partly re
stricting smoking on cars and that
Pasadena should do likewise.

ROAD IS OPERATING
WITHOUT FRANCHISE
San Bernardino City Attorney Makes
Discovery While Investigating
Traction Company
Affairs
[Special to The Hernia.]
SAN BERNARDINO, Jan. 20.—For
a number of years the San Bernardino
Valley Traction company has been
operating cars through tho city, on its
Highland line, without a franchise.
The startling discovery was made
today when City Attorney Swing
started an Investigation of the action |
of the electric company in withholding
from the annual franchise tax an
amount claimed to have been over
paid in previous years by the over
looking of the clause in the law that
provides for the payment, on exten
sions of the oricrlnal system, ob a |
basis of one-half the gross receipts.
A number of years ago the Traction I
company purchased the old aban
doned line to Harlem Springs, at one 1
time operated by the San Bernardino, i
Arrowhead & Waterman railroad, a !
steam narrow-gauge system. The
track was widened and'the system
electrlolzed and extended to Highland.
Since that time the company his
operated It as an electric line, although
no change was made In the original
franchise, which was for a narrow
gauge steam road exclusively, granting
the right to operate electric cars. It
is not as yet known what steps will
be talcnn by the city authorities.
A total of J835.51 was withhold from
the franchise tax for the amount paid, j
it Is claimed through error, in the '
years 1907 and 190 S. In investigating |
this situation City Attorney Swing also
dlisoovered that the lines claimed to be
extensions were constructed on fran
chises Issued to A. C. Denman, Jr.,
then general manager of the San Ber
nardino Valley Traction company. The
lines In question extend from the
Santa Fe depot to the city limits on ,
the Oolton line, and from Third and E
streets to the city limits on the Urblta
line. The city attorney holds that If i
the franchises were granted to Mr.
Denman they can not be extensions of
the San Bernardino Valley Traction
company.
It is possible that the matter may
be taken to the courts. The. question
will be laid before the council at Its
next session.

Drastic Measure Resorted to In Order

stuff
SAN BERNARDINO, Jan. 20.—1n an |
• effort to force the butchers to lower the
: price of meat, residents of San Bernar
! Ino have launched a drastic boy< ottt. ;
i For thirty days those that join in the]
movement pledge themselves to abstain
from its use. Never before has the
price of meat been so high in this city.
Petitions asking for co-operation on
j the part of every resident are In circu- '
lation and are said to have already
been freely signed. Five thousand men
and women are desired to conduct the
campaign, and by all refusing to par
take of meat until thirty days have
passed It is thought by those interested
in the move that the butchers will be
brought to the realization that they
must reduce to save their business.
SAN BERNARDINO DOGS
TO WEAR MUZZLES
City Council Expected to Adopt Pre
cautionary Measure in Re.
gard to Canines
SAN BERNARDINO, Jan. 20.—The
city council, following the lend of the I
Redlands officials, will meet, probably !
tomorrow, in special session to pass an j
ordinance making it compulsory that!
all dogs be muzzled. A (log catcher
>vill be named to see that the pro- j
visions of the council are strictly ad
bered to.
The discovery of a mad dog in Red
lands, which bit and probably infected
J. W. Walker, has brought the citizens
of both cities to the realization of the
grave danger. Walker, upon the advi* c
of physicians, left last night for the
Pasteur institute at Chicago for treat
ment. It is said that he has ample
time to arrive before rabies can de
velop. The Francis and Glonn dairies
in San Tlmote canyon, where the dog
first made its appearance, are under
strict quarantine.

CHEAPER AND BETTER GAS
SLOGAN OF NEW COMPANY
Merchants of Venice Receive Word of
Movement and Indorse
Project
VENICE, Jan. 20.—"Cheaper and bet
ter gas" is the slogan of a new com
pany being organized In Venice, Ocean
Park and Santa Monica. The announce
ment that a new company is in forma
tion was made at a meeting of the
Merchants of Venice, and this body in
dorsed the project. A committee was
appointed to investigate the plans of
the proposed new company and report
at the next meeting.
According to the announcement,
pastern capital will be provided to
llnance the scheme. In addition to this
as much local capital as possible will
be procured. Dr. J. M. White, one of
the chief factors in the present move
ment, declared that the gas furnished
the people of Ocean Park at present is
"a fright."
"It is because we can't get good gas
that the new company is being organ
ized," he said. >
Agitation against the local gas com
pany because of the quality and price
furnished has been made periodically
for two or three years. Last year the
city board of trustees was Induced to
adopt an ordinance regulating the price
and quality of gas for Ocean Park and
providing for a city Inspector to see
that the law was enforced.
Upon obtaining promises that im
provement would be made by January
1, 1910, the law was not rigidly en
forced. Merchants and citizens openly
declare that the promises of the gas
company have not been fulfilled ani
they ask immediate action.
It was while this subject was being
discussed at the merchants' meeting)
that the advent of the new company]
was made known, although it was at
tempted to keep the fact quiet until
greater headway had been made in the
organization and capitalization of the
project.

WOMAN IS ELECTED
JANITOR OF SCHOOL
Ocean Park Trustees Finally Settle
Long Drawn Out Con.
troversy
OCEAN PARK, Jan. 20.—The contro
versy over the janltorship of Ocean
Park school was ended by the appoint
ment of Mrs. George Wright to the po
sition by the board of school trustees
last night. Mrs. Wright is the widow
of George Wright, who was janitor of
the school until his death about two
months ago. His wife had performed
the duties pertaining to the position for
several months during his Illness, but
despite this, members of the board,
who have since resigned, favored de
priving her of the position on the
ground that she was unable to perform
the work.
The difference of opinion over the ap
pointment of Mrs. Wright led to 111
feeling among the school trustees. It
was charged that petty politics was at
the bottom of the whole affair. H. C.
Rogers, secretary of the board, and
Mrs. Force Parker both resigned as
trustees this month. Mrs. Parker, ac
cording to her friends, was disgusted
with the mixing of politics with school
affairs. The place of Mrs. Parker was
filled by Mrs. Gerson Goldsmith. That
of Rogers was filled by City Attorney
Byron C. Hanna, who was chosen sec
retary at the meeting last night.

ages to Extricate Itself from
Position Within
Breakers
REDOXDO BEACH, Jan. 20.—Fol
lowing closely upon the visit of Paul
han In his Farman biplane yesterday
and rivaling that event In spectacular
features, a large whale created ex
cltement here for several minutes this
afternoon. Tho sea monster, pursued
by a large school of porpoises Intent
upon destroying him, came inside the
breakers at the south end of the city
and for awhile it was thought he had
permanently floundered. The whale
linally extricated himself from his pre
carious position and again put to seai
just in time to escape LUllets from the
riiles of several hunters hastening to
"tlit; scene.
Trainmen employed on the cars of
the Los Angelus-Hedondo railway first
slsntcd the whale In the breakers be
low Cliffton-by-the-S»a shortly after
noon. They quickly reported the fact
to City Marshal Lee Stanchfleld and
others, who hastily procured guns of
large caliber and started for the beach
to dispatch the apparently helpless fish.
The spectacle of the city marshal in
his official capacity engaged in a
whale hunt is considered an entirely
new incident in the history Of Redondo
Beach, or probably of any other South
ern California port. Accompanying
Stanchfield were O. P. Hrady, a local
druggist, and Jack Funk. An effort
was made to get harpoons to equip
the hunters properly, but none could
be found In the few moments at the
disposal of the marshal.
The flight and grounding of the
whale was witnessed by many per
sons at a distance through field,
glasses, but those fortunate to be noaT
at hand declare they were entertained
for the space of ten minutes with a
most thrilling sight.
A great commotion was first ob
served In the water several hundred
feet from shore. The surface of the
water appeared to be disturbed by a
miniature tempest, being stirred into
foarr and spray. Finally numerous
porpoises were seen jumping out of
the water and then came the spout
ing of the whale, headed directly for
the breakers. It was evident that the
monster was unfamiliar with these
waters, as he landed practically high
and dry on the beach. The porpoises
remained outside the breakers, dart
ing to and fro In search of their
prey, finally moving off to the north.
According to those who viewed the
exciting Incident, the whale was at
least twenty-five feet in length.
