Declares Substantial Foods Are Needed to Take Meat's Place The much agitated beef trust prob lem found its "way into an interesting lecture given by Mrs. C. E. Pearce on the subject, "How to Get Along With out Meat" yesterday morning at the Young Women's Christian association building. ' Mrs. Pearce conducts the school of cooking for the association and yester day gave the annual demonstration lec ture at the end of the term. About 150 persons were present and listened to the lecture calculated to exemplify the principles of meeting the emergency of extremely high priced meat. She said in part: "We must furnish the table with other than meat while we are fighting the meat trust. Not to ignore the sub stantials to take the place of meat, but to funish ourselves with other palata ble foods to supply the requirements of the laboring men and others. While we may not materially reduce the cost of living, it is the point to show that we can make a shift to other articles of food with the view of compelling the reduction of the prlco of meat. "Our beautiful climate and conditions here givo us great advantages over the frozen east, and we should all take the position and help each other in forcing a reduction of the price of meat within the living limits of trie ma jority of mankind." Three classes daily, with an average of ninety pupils, are the result of the past year in the school of cookery carefully managed by Mrs. Pearce. All departments of the educational department are giving exhibitions this week. The association building will be open to the public. Live In VENICE VILI<Ao and BtFNOA- T.OU'S. Completely furnished.

GERMAN-AMERICAN TARIFF WAR ACUTE National Board of Trade Considers Appeal from Municipal Bodies for Abandonment of Meat Exports to the Fatherland WASHINGTON, Jan. 25.—Alariflfed by the critical turn in the tariff con troversy between the United Statei and Germany, appeals from chambers of commerce and boards of trade of sev» eral cities were made to the national board of trade in session here, urging that body to request the state depart ment to recede from its position that American beef and cattle must be ad mitted to Germany. Resolutions presented to the national body maintain there can be no advan tage in insisting on a German market for American beef, because the home consumption is Increasing at such a rate as soon to command all the supply. It Is pointed out that the agrarian party, in control of the reichstag, has stood for the principle that farmers of Germany must supply its beef and that the imperial government could not admit the American product If it would. A commission to settle the dispute is suggested. Many delegates. bringing from their homo cities demands for an Investiga tion into the high cost of living have made that subject foremost. The na tional body today decided to appoint a special committee of five men to de. termine the reasons for the present prices. A movement was launched to create a national headquarters and legislative bureau in Washington. ROCKEFELLER AT OFFICE NEW YORK, Jan. 25.—John D.

On cross examina tion Mrs. Holmes said she did not know the voice of .the defendant nor, did she know the voice of bhiveley. "How do you know that Mr. Stone used the language which you say he did?" asked Attorney Le Compte Davis.' "I. don't know, only the sound came from their house." "Doesn't It appear to you that you were paying a great deal of attention to the affairs of Mr. and Mrs. Stone?" asked Mr. Davis. — - "No," replied Mrs. Holmes. "The noise was so loud I couldn't Ijelp but hear it, and as soon as I heard him use these "bad words' I immediately closed the door."

Won't it bo terrible to write to his mother and tell her about it?" Mrs. Harris said Mrs. Stone told her she and her husband probably would be held for the murder as it was com mitted in their house, and as that was the usual way, also telling her at the time of an incident in her own life where the members of the house were similarly held. ' "They don't think we did it, do they?" Mrs; Stone asked, according to the testimony of Mrs. Harris. "No, said Mrs. Harris, "but they will hold you anyway." Mrs. Sarah Inniu of Los Angeles, who owns the house in which Stone and his wife lived, testified that January 3 she put the house In order.

"After Stone and my husband had gone in search of Shiveley," said Mrs. Donaldson, "Mrs. Stone and I re mained at the house for about two hours." * ■■ \ When asked by District Attorney Ford what conversation she had with Mrs. Stone during their stay there she said Mrs. Stone had told her she and her husband had heard the crash of glass and then a cry for "Help." Mrs. Donaldson testified she had been awakened by the screams of Mr. and Mrs. Stone as they came down the street, screaming: "Get up, Donaldson; they've come and got Morgan." - "In the conversation, which I had with Mrs. Stone," Mrs. Donaldson con tinued, "Mrs. Stone exclaimed: "Isn't it awful. It will be awfully hard to tell his mother about, if he is dead.' I said: 'Don't talk that way. It won't be that bad. You won't have to write | to his mother.' " Mrs. Donaldson stated Mr. Stone I seemed to he rather nervous and ex cited, but Mrs. Stone was apparently cool. B. N. Boyntqn of San Gabriel, who was awakened the morning of ' the murder by Donaldson and Stone and who aided In the search for the body of Shlvetey, reviewed the facts of find ing the body and the appearances of the defendants the morning after the murder. • _ - , After the examination of Boynton District Attorney Ford" stated the prosecution rested.

"The religious spirit would be sac rificed once it is placed on a profes sional basis," said Mr. Stoermer. "Thore are a lot of good people on the stage, but not enough to give the Passion play. The high mission of this drama can only be accomplished by preserving its sacred atmosphere, and for this reason the cast must be recruited from religious organizations.
