TttutUat ??£?>4ssouatien .--: 223 SOUTH SPRING STREET Woman Dons Waist in Court; Judge Declares It Is Poor Fit JUDGE CONREY'S court had some thing of tho appearance of a dress making parlor yosterday when tho suit of the Dyer Law and Collection company against Mrs, Franklin P. Duron, wife of a wealthy broker livfns at tho Alexandria hotel, to collect $244 for dresses made by Miss M. EL Kelly, which the defendant refused to pay on the ground that a waist in tho collec tion or article* did not nt. The court compelled Mrs. Rurch to try the waist on. She had her maid, Miss Jeanetta Nelson, with her, and i lie waist was fitted on in the Judge's chamber*, ami the defendant then took the stand while the court examined the fit. Judge Conrey, on looking closely at the waist, made of light silk and lace, deelded that it did not lit, and gave judgment for Jhe defendant. Early in tho proceedings attorneys for the defendant explained that $215 and the misfit waist were offered to the dressmaker, but she refused to accept anything but the full amount, and put the bill into the hands of tho collection Mrs. Hurch claimed that the waist fitted tightly across the shoulders and was too short In the waist. Two ex perts, Misses Williams and Hoffman, on behalf of Mis.s Kelly, examined the waist and endeavored to show the court that by changing tho hang of Mrs. Burin's skirt it fitted all right. Miss Nelson, the maid, testified that her mistress had tried the waist on in her pres°nce > B-nd was greatly dis pleased with the fit, although she had visited the dressmaker's four times to have it changed. She said the waist looked better now than when the de fendant tried It on last fall, and she declared it had been changed since her employer's last visit to the dress- Miss' Kelly indignantly denied that any changes had been made in the waist without Mrs. Burch's knowledge. "I think she Is stouter around the chest than 3.h0 was." she declared. _—_ v w r~W~\ Should be In every builder's h peril I- L-l \J II I II cation*.

T&1B0 "Her waist at the time of trying on was higher, but there has been a change in the style since then, and the skirt she wears does not suit the con struction of the waist." After judgment was filtered it was discovered that no disposition had been made of the waist. The material had been furnished by Mrs. Burch, but Miss Jvelly claimed payment for her work. udge Conrey was called back to tho bench again and decided that in view of the fact that Miss Kelly was to fit Mrs Burch, and that the waist had not been shown to tit, it rightfully be longed to Mrs. Burch. The case was heard on depositions in Justice Line's court some months ago, but Mrs. Hurch was in Europe at tho time and the trial was postponed until her return, being settled at noon yes terday* MOTORCYCLE RIDER FINED • FOR LEAVING MUFFLER OPEN Frank McCann was fined $15 yester day by Judge Chambers on a'charge of running a motorcycle with the engino unmufflerl, which is a misdemeanor. 'Plic conviction was one of tho first under tho recently enacted "muffler" ordinance. Officers Coe and Gardner testified that McCann would warn speeding au tolsts of their approach by riding ahead of them and making a racket with his engine by having his muffler open. Judge Chambers reprimanded the youth severely. He paid the fine. William Glassoll, who was arrested Wednesday night on West Pico street by Officers Coe and Gardner for violat ing the speed ordinance, pleaded guilty and was flnod £50. This is tho second time that he has been arrested for speeding and Judge Chambers told him that a third offense would mean a Jail sentience. W. H. Morehouse was also fined $50 for a same offense. He was arrested while racing with another automobile on West Adams street. LOS ANGELES HERALD FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 15, 1910. WILL TRY WHOLE ENGINE COMPANY 'Darktown Brigade' of City Fire Department Called on the Carpet MEMBERS ACCUSE OFFICER Riotous Conditions Said to Pre vail Despite Peace Compact Drawn in Blood The compact, drawn In blood and signed by every member of Engine company No. 4, in which they promised to live In peace and brotherly love, has been violated and the engine company is in its customary state of suppressed riot. Tho fire commission will put the entire company on trial next Thursday afternoon, and It 1h probable that some member! will be without Jobs when tiio proceedings are concluded, Engine company No. 4 is composed entirely of negro firemen, and for yean-, there has been trouble in the house. Lieut. George W. Bright, who com mands the company. Is the only negro officer In the department, and he and some of his men do not get along well together. xesterdfty the members of the com pany submitted a statement to tho commission in which they charged Lieut. Bright with conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. In that he had caused an article to be published In the Kagle, a negro newspaper, con demning the members of his own en gine company for jealousy. At the same time the members of the company Bubmltted these charges Lieut. Bright filed a statement In which he said ho was not responsible for the publication of the article and knew nothing about it until a week after'lt was printed. In tho same statement he accused AY. H. Brown, one of the members of his company who had signed the petition to the fire commission, of Insulting him and having "bucked him for the last four years." This man Brown, he said. "Is the interogator of the whole trouble." The commission Is anxious to know what an "interogator of a trouble" may be, and so will put Brown on trial to find out. At the same time. Chief Todd reported that several times Lieut. Bright had made mistakes in responding to alarms anil gone to the wrong boxes. This bo characterised as a very serious matter and It will be Investigated by the com mission next Thursday afternoon. There has been much dissatisfaction among the members of this company for a long time, and during former Mayor Harper's administration It near ly culminated In every member of the company bringing charges against every other member. The commission heard of it before it reached that far and concluded thnt the best way to settle the matter would be to discharge the whole company.. The company learned of this decision of the commis sion, but before It could be put Into effect the company filed a solemn com pact signed by every member, in which they all agreed to live together In peace, and harmony, to overlook each other's faults and to have no more bickerings. This satisfied the commis sion, and the matter was dropped. PROMINENT EARLY SETTLER TO BE BURIED SATURDAY William Ferguson Resided in City Forty Yeans William Ferguson, one of (ho pioneer residents of Los Angeles, who died April 9, nged 78, will be buried Satur day afternoon at 2 o'clock. The fun eral will be private, the services be ing held at the parlors of Orr & Ed wards. Mr. Ferguson came to California from Arkansas in the early days of tho gold excitement, and, settling In the San Joaquin valley, soon partly abandoned mining- to start a general merchandise .store. About forty years ago he came to Los Angeles and, mar rying soon after, built a house for his bride on what Is now tho corner of Third and Clay streets, where they lived for many years. His old homo has recently been razed and a modern four-story apartment building erected on the site. The site of his later home is being cleared for the erection of an eight-story office building. In the pueblo days of Los Angeles he served one term as councilman and was Identified with many of the lead- Ing business enterprises 'of the city, Including the Los Angeles Water com pany, the California Clay company, and was one of the original promoters of the Agrictulaural Park association. He leaves a widow, son and daugh ter. INSURANCE COMPELS GLENN DEATH SEARCH Wife's Applications for $10,000 May Complicate Case That the cauae of the death of Charles A. Glenn, who, after being treated at the receiving hospital, died either of uraemia or a fracture of the skull, will be Investigated thoroughly is evident by the discovery yesterday of $10,000 worth of accident insurance which hinges on the cause of his death. The records of the receiving hospital favor the insurance companies, while statements made by Dr. Powers of the health department and further state ments of Dr. Stivers to friends and relatives of the dead man point to a fracture of the skull or brain concus sion. Acting on the assumption that Glenn met death through accident, his widow, living at 3507 Budlong avenue, made application yesterday for the insurance. In order that the real cause of his death might be ascertained, it is thought that a postmortem will bo held. SEASONABLE "Walter, thl« fl»h lßn't fre«h."

LOS ANGELES MAY GET AERIAL MEET Head of Aero Club Favorably Dis posed Toward Angel City as Flyground WRIGHTS LIFT INJUNCTION Air Kings Are Recompensed to Offset Claims Against For eign Man Birds With the accession of the Wright brothers to the popular demand that they recede from their position on tho question of their patent rights, giving some assurance to foreign aviators that they may exhibit in America without facing Injunction proceedings, the prospects of a successful aviation meet here this fall appear more ro-1 se.'itc. Los Angeles has made formal ap plication for tho meot, and mindful of Its success in pulling off the first meet to be held in America, President Cortland Field Bishop of the Aero; Club of America evidently thinks well of this city's ability to handle the moot. "Tho succesful way in which they managed their big mset last January," he s.i id yesterday, according tv a New York dispatch, "is a strong point in thoir favor.. All conditions are favorable except that Los Angeles 18 so fir from the Atlantic ports. "It would Impose something of a hardship in time and expense on tho European contestants for them to go there." In reply to Mr. Bishop's telegram requesting Lou Angeles to make the Aero Club of America a specific offer for the meet. Dieh Ferris last night sent a telegram stating that it was not Los Angeles' place to make such an offer but that upon being Informed! »by the Aero club' of the cost of the i fall meet, which figures the club lias; In its possession, he would confer with the civic bodies of Loa Angeles and whether it would be advisable to bring the meet here. •ro un in wtmt "The plans of the Aero Club of America for the meeting to be held In October render the selection of an eastern location most Improbable, as the weather there at that time of the; year would make a successful meet Impossible," said Prof. H. La V. Twin ing, president of the Aero Club of Cali fornia, yesterday. "Los Angeles has fully demonstrated its ability to furn ish, not only the weather, but the funds necessary for the success of such a tremendous affair. "I think that prominent aviators, both American and European, realize i the merits of i.os Angeles as n place for the meet, and do not look for serious opposition to our claims. "Domlnguei field «ni not be the site of any future aviation meets which come to Los Angeles, although no oth er location has been definitely decided upon. Several good tracts of land are under consideration." The arrangement with the Wright brothers for the payment of a lump sum to them by the promoters of the meet, to offset their claims to royal ties from the foreign aviators, re moves the last bar to an American meet In the fall, and leaves the Euro pean aviators no excuse for not com peting in America for the cups cap tured from them at the French meets, save a Jealous refusal to leave their own country. PRES. BISHOP OF AERO CLUB SAILS FOR EUROPE NEW YORK, April 14.—Cortlandt Field Bishop, president of the Aero Club of America, sailed for Europe to day on the steamer La Provence to at tend the large aviation meets abroad. He displayed enthusiasm over the prospects of the international balln.in race at St. Louis, but admitted it was going to be difficult to persuade for eign aeroplantsts in numbers to enter for the heavier than air contests in America the coming fall. AERONAUT IS FATALLY HURT BY LONG FALL BERLIN, April 14.—Aeronaut Lo renz became entangled In the guide ropes of the military dirigible balloon M-4 as it was leaving the ground to day and was carried high above the | field, where he clung for a moment, and then fell. He was probably fatally ; injured. The accident occurred on j Tegal field and was witnessed by 300' member* of the Prussian parliament, who had been invited by the minister of war to see the airship maneuvers. MARRIAGE OF INCOMPETENT DECLARED LEGAL BY COURT Judge Rives Grants Mrs. Kofoed Widow's Allowance Judge Rives yesterday ruled that the marriage of Louise R. Kofoed to John C. Kofoed on August 7, 1907, was legal by making- an order granting Mrs. Kofoed $100 a month from the estate ot her husband, who died January 27, 1910. The application of the widow for an allowance of $10 was contested by rela tives of tltf deceased on the ground that the marriage was not legal, in view of the fact that Kofoed had been declared incompetent by.the court six months previous to the ceremony. The Title Guarante and Trust com pany was declared administrator of the estate after Kofoed was declared in competent. Six months afterward he eloped to San Diego with the woman who survives him as a widow. The deceased left an estate valued at $25,000, and in his will he left $1000 to his widow. He left two children—Mrs. Grace Rentcheiler of The Palms and Perry Kofoed of Seatle. The validity of the will was contested on behalf of the latter, but Judge Rives recently ruled that it was valid. The estate will now be distributed under the terms of the will, the family allowance of $10 a month to the widow dating from the death of the deceased to the final distribution of the estate.

BAER PLEASED BY ACTION TAKEN BY PRESBYTERY Delighted by Indorsement Given to Change in Occidental College Charter "Never have I Tecaived greater en couragement than came to me Ht the t meeting of the Los Angeles preabytery," said President Baer of Occidental colVege upon hli return last night from Diego. "1 am prouder then ever to he honored with member ship in the preabyterlan church, and the Los Angeles presbytery has heart ily Mid generously indorsed the new policy of the trustees of Occidental college. The presbytery can never be charged with being narrow or bigoted. While the college has never been un der ecclesiastical control, its charter has until recently required that twelve of its ilfteen truateea should he Pres byterians. The new charter now pvo vii! s 'that the management of the college shall be non-sectarian and shall be vested In a self-perpetuating board of twenty evangelical Christian elmrch members.' "Occidental college has become broadly non-sectarian and at the same time has changed other features of its charter, so as to muke It for all time positively Christian. I do not wonder that many who have known Occiden tal and of its Presbyterian foundation, felt at first that the trustees were too unmindful of paat history, and even were charged with bowing the knee to the Carnegie Foundation. When the action of the trustees was frankly ex plained and when the old Presbyterian friends of the college were shown that money from any source could not in duce our trustees to surrender tl.e fundamental foundation stones of a Christian college, and that as a matter of (act we had no assurance that the new charter would be accepted by the Carnegie Foundation because it does not meet certain requirements imposed by Mr. Carnegie when he originally made his grant for retiring allowance! to professors, the presbytery gave its unanimous indorsement, and he conse quence Occidental has the friendship and en-operation of the presbytery as it has always had. In other words, however much some regretted that it seemed Wlae to drop the Presbyterian requirement for trustees, they voted lor the broader management with eon- fldence and trust. "The matter WM thoroughly ana frankly discussed and the action ta ken particularly heartening to me. Nothing was kept back—the preoby terv was taken into our fullest con fidence. It ll a treat day for Occi dental as Rhe now steps forward ap peallng to everyone, regardless of creed for aid and 00-operatton an<l at tlie same time subordinating all denominational divisions to the more important guarantee that the c^e^o shall continue to be fundamentally and positively Christian in its teaching and management. Another point to be gained is that it will now be easier for tho public to understand that Oc- CldenUl Is a Christian college and not B theological seminary. Notwithstand ing the college is twenty-one years old there are many who have sup posed that It existed largely to propa ■ He Presbyterianism. when as a mat ter of fact that is not the case, and never has been. This new policy will appeal with increasing power to large riven prominent among them leading Presbyterians. Men these days are tired of quibbling over sectarian pro visions and are ready to put the em phasis in tlrst things, flrst."

CENSUS TAKERS WILL BEGIN LABORS TODAY Supervisor Farmer and Assist ants Kept Busy Answering Subordinates' Questions Three strong men were kept busy yesterday answering the telephone in the offlre of Bert L. Farmer, .supervis or of the census In the Exchange building. Questions of the enumera tors bent on getting ready for work this morning varied from a query on the proper way of classifying a suf fragette to an Inquiry as to whether blue ink that turns almost black would do in a fountain pen, or wheth er it would be necessary to carry a bottle of "black-cat" and a goose quill. Early this morning the 353 enumer ators will commence work and as prob ably 225 will be put at work in the city, Mr. Farmer, with only ten in spectors to assist him in the work of supervising the enumerators, expects to have his hands full, as, In spite of the explanations given at the meeting in Symphony hall on Wednesday even- Ing, many questions regarding the pro per manner of classifying the citizens are constantly arising. Every enumerator will be provided with a badge, so that there will be no excuse for any thefts being commit ted by men posing as census takers. The laws governing the work of the census takers are very strict this year, and any enumerator who gives out any information, or knowingly turns in false informations, is subjet to imprisonment for as long a term as five years, a fact which the supervis ors in the various districts have been careful to make known. MISTAKES COUNTY JAIL FOR HOTEL; ORDERS WINE Intoxicated Prisoner Pays Com pliment to Clean Cell A. Atkinson, a typical Weary Willie, drunk when arrested in Santa Monica yesterday morning:, still drunk when ■entenced t.i nrve thirty days in the county jr.ll a few hours later awakened in his cell at the county jail yesterday afternoon, surveyed its clean celling and whlewashed bars, Imagined he waij a guest at a first clays hostelry, and, calling a khaki-clad trusty, demanded that he be served with a porterhouse steak and a bottle of wine. When the order was denied him he raised an up roar that brought visions of a jail break to every attache of the building. Only the sight of a straitjacket con vinced the man that he was the "guest" of a J=t i 1 and not a hotel. "That is the slncerest compliment we have ever been paid in our lives," said jailer Gallagher yesterday after the incident. _ SCHOOL RECEIVES GIFT Through the efforts of J. Z.
