JAMJABY 20. ii)l(>. _ . —~—_______—— — URGES BOYCOTT ON BILLBOARDS EFFECT (OF CRUSADE IN TACO MA IS RELATED UNSIGHTLY OBSTRUCTIONS IN LOS ANGELES NUMEROUS Believes Judge Works in Recent Mes sage to Council Has Sounded Note Which Will Be | Heeded by Citizens A BILLBOARD REVERIE BY PAUL <;VI.I,STHOM. Billhoards grouped along the green— Bjrei lire strained for glimpse of scene; Jtcud the tale of pork and bean. Billboards high upon the hill- On the way to Sun Gabri'l; Something tells you you are ill. IttlDuMi sHMn in go In drnw«— Oolden gleams the orange groves; You're Impressed with hats and stoves. Billboards out t'wards Hollywood— Fancy seeks » neighborhood; Then you learn your blood's not good. Billboards seem to ache to teach— Seeking surcease at the beach; Billboards there do all but preach. Off you start for wonder Isle; Nature wears Its blandest smile. Billboards say >". G.s the style. Billboards long and billboards high— - Hoses with poinsettlas vie— •'Use Uumm's Junk for baby's cry." Billboards sturdy as -an oak — Distant snows the muse Invoke— "Go to I'ncle's when you're broke." Billboards always seem to know— fine the view of old Mount Lowe; . But eclipsed by Smith & Co. Billboard* —never rude— Vistas 'waken tender mood; . Blng! It's but a breakfast food. Billboards, billboards everywhere. Herded 'bout with first-class care, Howl to heaven of some ware. Interested in Message "There is one thing in Judge Works' recent message to the council which deeply Interested me, a frequent visitor to Los Angeles, and that is his refer ence to the billboards," said a man from Tacoma, Wash., yesterday. "I believe experience has taught the boycott syctem is the only method which can be used effectively to first reduce and finally eradicate this nui sance. At least, as far as my personal knowledge goes, that was the experi ence of Tacoma. "It may not be generally known that Tacoma is practically a billboardless town. But it was not always so. We had the hideous things lined up along the most popular thoroughfares until civic pride began to assert Itself, and this it did by vigorously appealing to the Tacoma business sense. It was not necessary to resort to harsh meas ures, as our people .from the highest to the lowest take much pride in our environments. "The movement came at a real psy chological time. Five miles from the heart of the cit" is situated Point De fiance park, and at thi time it was in its first state of development and new features to make it popular with the masses were under consideration by the park board. But the street car line on the way out there was bor dered on each side by billboards. Sentiment Awakened "Sentiment was awakened, and the citizens went after the patrons of the ugly things, and as soon as they were able to rescind their contracts their names were removed from the scenery. The greater part of the line commands a fine view of Puget Sound, lies high, so it is easy to appreciate what the removal of the billboards has meant. No longer are delightful glimpses of the sound punctuated with soap, medi cine and breakfast foods. "One thing that Los Angeles prides itself on Is the beauty of its interurban drives, by trolley or vehicle. How anything like the present situation has been permitted so long in a community that prides itself on a leaning toward the aesthetic is beyond my compre hension. You have not a run into sub urban sections that is not literally plastered with what is considered as the most reprehensible form of adver tising. And the worst part of it Is that local business men are lending themselves to this marring of natural beauties. I can see how 'foreigners, national advertisers, can be so short sighted; it means nothing to them so long as a name is impressed on the public , mind from one coast of the country to another; but that your own citizens should lend themselves to de preciating one of your real assets well, I can't figure it out excepting as gross thoughtlessness. I hope the note Judge Works has sounded will bring them to their senses, and thatrat the very earliest they will cause to bo re moved the rubbish that is no adver tisement excepting to their lack of common sense and civic pride." GOVERNMENT READY TO ASSIST LAND OWNERS Stock Company May Be Formed for Purpose of Bringing Water to Imperial District EL CENTHO, Jan. 28.—Word has Just been .ecelved from Secretary of the Interior Ballinger that the gov ernment stands ready to furnish water to the land owners on the high land east of the present Imperial valley water system, provided the citizens construct the necessary canal. Presi dent H. J. Messlnger of the No. 11 Water company, organized to provide water for these lands, is now endeav oring to reach all'entrymen who have holdings In the district referred to to the end that a stock company can be formed to raise funds for the work. No. 11 district is bounded on the west by water company districts Nqs. 5 and V, under the present system. All the land In No. 11 is too high to be reached by the canals built by the California Development company. It Is now proposed to build a ditch from the Laguna dam proposition at Yuma to the high land. This will add at least 10,000 acres to the Irrigable land of the Imperial county. ORPHEUM BUYS INTO MAJESTIC BECK AND HIS ASSOCIATES MAKE DEAL WITH MOROSCO VAUDEVILLE LEADERS ADD TO LOCAL STRENGTH Policy of South Broadway Playhouse Will Remain as Heretofore with Same Manage. ment The biggest local theatrical deal since the Morosco-Belasco merger was con summated yesterday, when a half in terest in the Majestic theater, in Broad way near Ninth street, was purchased from Oliver Morosco, the former lessee, by M. Meyerfeld, jr., of San Francisco, Martin Beck of New York and Manager Clarence Crown of the Orpheum, The other half interest in the leaso is retained by Manager Morosco, who also owns the Hurbank theater, and the di al obviously brings into closer friendly re lations interests which have been at admitted amity on the local Kialto for some years. Mr. Beck is the head of the Orpheum circuit, and Mr. Meyer feld his closest adviser. Xt-cent visits of both to this city resulted in the com pletion of negotiations which it is un derstood have been punding for several months. Tlio new management will be known as the Majestic Theater and Kealty company. Mr, Morosco remains as lo cal manager of the Majestic, and its policy will continue unchanged, both straight dramatic and musical attrac tions being booked. It Is expected that through the new alliance access may be had to many eaatern offerings formerly not obtain able locally. During his recent visit to Los Angeles Mr. Beck admitted that be hud long had ambitions to enter Ihe "legitimate" field. Close observers of the dramatic world believe that his lo cal venture, with Messrs. Meyerfeld and Drown, is the beginning of many acquisitions which will ultimately place the present head of western vaudeville In a position to compete with the older eastern managers. Neither Mr. Morosco nor Mr. Drown was ready to speculate on this possible phase of the purchase yesterday. The latter left last night for San Francisco to discuss business matters with the management of the Orpheum in that city. CONSTABLES RAID JAPANESE FISHERS Fifteen Men Arrested on Charge of Catching Fish for Sale Too Close to Outfall Sewer A raid in a steam launch on a fleet of Japanese fishing boats was made by Constable Ed Rice anJ Deputy Constable Jack Johnston yesterday and fifteen men were arrested, charged with violating the county fishing or dinance by taking fish within one mile of the Los Angeles outfall sewer. Six of the men were brought to Los An geles in the forenoon and arraigned before Justice Ling. They will plead today. Six others were brought to the city last night and placed with their com panions in the county jail. They also will appear in Justice Ling's court to day. Three fishermen were left at the fish camp to watch the boats. Complaints that Japanese fishermen have been taking lar«e quantities of fish from the waters near the opening of the outfall sewer have been num erous recently and the demand that something be done to prevent this work became so insistent that the officers were sent to Kedondo early yesterday morning. They boarded a launch for the prohibited zone and stated on their return to the city that many of the Japanese arrested were as near as possible to the mouth of the sewer. JAPANESE CHARGED WITH VIOLATING NAVIGATION LAWS SANTA MONICA, Jan. 28.—Pedro Mad. 10, deputy United States customs inspector, today arrested a number of Japanese belonging to the colony of lishermen at the long wharf on the charge of violating the government navigation laws. It Is claimed the Japanese have not equipped their launches, used In fishing, with the propo.- signals and lights required by the regulations. There are at least sixty launches belonging to the Japanese in the local fishing trade which helps to supply the Los Angeles market. Madilla is laid to have had an eye upon the violators of the law for some time and gave them a chance to prepare the neces sary signals, but when they failed to do so after a reasonable time, he rounded them up. Joe Hanashuta, a fisherman of Venice, was also taken in by the government officers, on a similar charge. MAN IN PITTSBURG r.FJS DRUNK BY EATING ONIONS Court Liberates Prisoner Who Says Tubers Caused Him to Ap. pear Intoxicated PITTSBURU, Jan. 28.—Unsuspected forces in the lowly onion were revealed when George Prunner appeared be fore Magistrate Fred CfoUman and the onion jag was added to the catalogue of pitfalls for the unwary. "I was going to call upon a friend who has consumption," explained the prisoner, "and my doctor advised me to eat uoinc onions first to avoid con tagion. I did so. They went to my head and things began to whirl. I don't remember what happened after that. I didn't know onions ever af fected folks like that." The magistrate did not confess to similar ignorance, but promptly dis charged the victim of the newest joy ■creator. Prunner left, followed by a crowd anxious to learn where he got the onions.

MISSES TRAIN, THEN TRIES TO TAKE LIFE JACOB NIRVA IN HURRY TO GET TO BUTTE When Picked Up Body Is Found to Be Swathed with Greenbacks to the Amount of $400 "I missed the train I had Intended to take for Butte, and it discouraged me so that I tried to end my life," was all the explanation that Jacob Nirva, a Finlander, swathed in new greenbacks under his clothing, would give of his atempt at suicide early yesterday morning. Nirva, without warning, threw himself across the Southern Pacific railroad tracks op posite the C'udahy Packing company's plant, Eleventh and Alameda streets, b"fore an approaching freight train. The prompt action of the engineer in putting on the brakes and, stopping his engine within a foot of Nirva's body prevented the man from being crushed to death. Nirva had literacy swathed his body in greenbacks to the amount of $400. A certificate of deposit on the All Night and D-iy ban: lor $100 v.as found in his shoe and led to his Identifica tion The man has suffered a complete lapse of memory and is bordering on insanity.

(i F Stainbach, cashier of the All Night and Day bunk, states that at 3 o'clock yeiterday morning, Nirva presented a certificate of deposit dated January 8. calling for $500. Staiubach says the man acted queerly and that becauM of the lateness of the hour he persuaded W"' to put back $100 In another certificate. Nirva told the bank cleric that he desired to catch the first train for Butte and left prenim ably for the depot. He is at the county hospital await ing an examination as to his sanity.

Thereupon Thomas Rich, barber of 1204 Taylor street, wiped the remaining flecks of lather from a patron's face, stood him up and said: "How are you, Ernest?" "I'm pretty good, Tom; how are you?"

Section TROUBLE BREWING AMONG 'DAUGHTERS' NORTHERN CHAPTERS WOULD CHANGE CONVENTION Southern Faction of Organization Em ploys Attorney to Protect Rights of Los An. gele« An effort to have the place of meet ing of the state convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution changed from Los Angeles to Fresno has stirred up trouble once more in the ranks of the members. Southern California chapters have employed an attorney to protect them against what is termed an unjust and illegal actioii on the part of some of the present officers and the Northern California chapters. A petition asking that the meeting place be changed has been circulated and has received the sup port of all the northern chapters, ex cept Sierra and Sequoia, the latter the largest and oldest in the state. The meeting will be held February 17. Northern Daughters say Fresno is better suited for the gathering on ac count of the difference in distance. Angeles was decided upon as the OMI ing place last February and if t meeting is taken away from Los A geles there may be a break in tl society which will disrupt it in Cal fornia. Trouble started in November when the state officers visited Lo Angeles. All was smoothed over a' that time and no more differences wei looked for until the circulation of th petition started the row all over agaii Northern chapters are a unit in ■■ desire for the re-election of Mrs Frederick Jewel Laird, state regent Southern chapters are supporting Mrs. W.
