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

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. He is believed formerly to
hava lived In Butte and to be a Fin
lander by nativity.
(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.

rated 20 Years Ago
CHICAGO, Jan. 28.—"1 won't charge
you for that shave, pal, because you're
my long lost brother."
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?"
Then they shook hands and went
homo to supper.
"As soon as I had him shaved I
found a scar on his face. I put it
there myself when we were playing
Indians twenty years ago," said Rich.
We were separated when boys and had
lost each other for twenty years."

TROUBLE BREWING

NORTHERN CHAPTERS WOULD

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

Southern chapters are supporting Mrs.
W. W. Stilson for the place. It is
believed that the fight for the state,
regency has precipitated the ueeoncl
trouble. Mrs. Henry J. Martin, state
treasurer, and Miss Amelia G. Catlin,
historian, have withdrawn from the
contest for re-election owing to the
bitterness engendered by strife afflony
