Director of Cooking at Y. W. C. A.
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.

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.

QUARRELED MUCH
WITNESS SAYS BAD LANGUAGE
OFTEN HEARD AT HOUSE
DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S THEORY
SLIGHTLY SUPPORTED
Deputy Sheriff Testifies Man on Trial
for Murder of Morgan Bhlveley
Offered Theory Mexican*
Committed the Deed
Testimony In regard to overhearing
heated arguments at the residence of
George Stone and Clara Stone, on trial
at Alhambra on a charge of having
murdered • Morgan Shlveley, January
12, supposed to have taken place be-
I tween Stone -and his wife, gave a
I slight, substantiation yesterday to the
i theory of the district attorney's office
that the murder of Shiveley is the.
outcome •of differences existing be
tween the man and wife on trial. Mrs.
William Holmes, who lived next door
to the Stones, testified that on several
occasions she had heard "boisterous
noises" coming from Stone's house and
that she had heard "bad language" in
the altercations. 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."
Mr. Holmes was then called to the
witness stand and examined regarding
the hearing of harsh words. He stated
he had heard loud, talk, but wasn't
sure of the words used.
Deputy Sheriff Cross Examined
Deputy Sheriff Woods was cross ex
amined by Attorney Davis and slight
corrections were made in his testimony
of Saturday, showing how Stone was
dresser) and the taking of Stone and
his wife to jail.
Befor. leaving the stand. Woods
stated Stone himself had offered the
theory that Shiveley had been killed
by a Mexican with whom he had had
trouble on his car. \
Mrs. Mary Harris, who conducts a
grocery in East San Gabriel near the
Stone residence, testified that on the
morning of the tragedy Mrs. Stone
was walking past her store when she
stopped and remarked: "Isn't this too
bad? 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. She testified
blood-stains were found on the floors
and windows and an indentation in the
floor of the back porch which evidently
Was made by a bullet from a revolver
supposed to have been discharged by.
Stone In an endeavor to frighten
someone ho thought was there.
Visits Neighbor's House
* Mrs. Fred Donaldson, wife of the
motorman of Shlveley's car, testified
Stone and his wife came to her house
the morning of the tragedy.
"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. Attorney Davis for.
the defense, owing to the absence of
his witnesses, asked for a - continua
tion of the hearing until Thursday
morning at 10:30 o'clock, which was
granted. It is expected the trial will
be ended by Thursday afternoon.,!
ARREST ACTORS FOR SPEEDING
While enjoying an exhilarating- trip

and they are expected to discuss tho
question somewhat more at length in

SCHUBERTS NEGOTIATE TO
PURCHASE "PASSION PLAY"
Theatrical Promoter Desires to Buy
Religious Drama to Be Present.
. ed in Los Angeles
According to a letter received sev
eral days ago by William Stoermer,
manager of the Passion play to be
presented at Temple auditorium tho
week beginning March 13, J. J. Shu
bert will come to Lbs Angeles to ne
gotiate for the presentation of the
great religious drama at the Hippo
drome, New York. Thero is a likeli
hood a proposition will be made by
the Shuberts regarding the purchase
of the play.
"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.
At tho rehearsals no levity is tolerated.
It was the deep feeling of the solemn
ity of the work, absorbed in their
weeks of preparation that helped the
performers at the San Francisco pre
sentation to give such an impressive
rendition."
G. H. Freddy left last night for San
Francisco to bring down the six car
loads 'of scenery to be used in the pro
duction. With the stage properties
will 'come costumes for the 900 people
needed in the cast.
Mrs. Dick Ferris, better known by
her, stage name of Florence Stone, may
play the part of Mary Magdalene.
DEATH DUE TO DEFECTIVE
MACHINERY AND NEGLECT
Coroner's Jury Finds John McComb
Killed by Too Suddenly Re.
versing of Elevator
■•That the death of John McComb was
due partly to his carelessness and
partly to defective machinery in an
elevator he was operating is the ver
dict of a coroner's Jury yesterday at
an inquest held at Sutcl. Brothers'
undertaking parlors over the body of
John MeComb, employed by the
Hughes manufacturing and Lumber
company, who received a basal frac
ture of the skull Friday in the fall of
an elevator, from which he died.
McComb was one of five men who
were descending from the second floor,
when, as witnesses testified, he at
tempted suddenly to reverse its de
scent, resulting in the breaking of the
coupling and sheering of the mairt
pulley. An investigation probably will
follow.
